Posted in Songs, tributes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2010 by vidursury

A 1944 blockbuster, with gorgeous melodies composed by Meer Saheb. Then rising composer C. Ramachandra¬† assisted him in Noor Jehan’s “Teri Yaad Aaye Sanwariya”, and also sang “Tu Bhool Ke Phende Mein…Dil Na Lagana” for Yaqub. The movie stars Noor Jehan, Surendra, Ulhas, Husn Bano; also Baby Meena Kumari plays NJ’s child role! Also this was the first movie Noor Jehan did with Surendra and the only movie of Noor Jehan with Ulhas and Meena Kumari.

Noor Jehan, Surendra, Chitalakar, Vatsala Kumthekar (of Aurat fame), Husn Bano and others were the singers. Oh! Here are the really melodious songs:

1.Kyon Man Dhoondhe Prem Nadi Ka Kinara by Surendra, singing for himself

2. Ja Re Panchi Ja by Noor Jehan, Surendra and female chorus, all singing for themselves

3. Dil Leke Muka Na Jaana by Surendra and Noor Jehan, singing for themselves

4. Bhaiyya Hamaro Ji…Na Mohe Chahiye by Noor Jehan, Husn Bano and chorus, singing for themselves

The song is started by the chorus and Husn Bano and Noor Jehan join them in the second part.

5. Tu Bhool Ke Phende Mein….Dil Na Lagana Meri Jaan by Chitalkar, singing for Yaqub

6. Mohe Le Chal Balam Mele Mein by Vatsala Kumthekar and a male singer…sorry, I can’t recognise him. Anybody knows? Vatsala sings for herself and probably it is the same case with the male singer

7. Banti Nazar Aati Nahion Taqdeer Hamari by Noor Jehan on herself

8. Yahi Fiqr Hai Sham Ki Pichle Savere by Surendra on himself, also Noor Jehan and Yaqub on screen

9. Teri Yaad Aaye Sanwariya by Noor Jehan on herself; C. Ramachandra assisted Meer Sahab for composing this song

10. Mohaniya Sundar Mukhda Khol by Noor Jehan and Surendra singing for themselves

Hope you enjoyed the beautiful songs.
