A HUNDRED GHAZALS IN HINDI MOVIES – PART V

As I brought out in the introduction of ‘A Hundred Ghazals In Hindi Movies – Part I’, ‘A Hundred Ghazals In Hindi Movies – Part II’, ‘A Hundred Ghazals in Hindi Movies – Part III’, and ‘A Hundred Ghazals In Hindi Movies – Part IV’, the ghazal is a poetic form consisting of rhyming couplets and a refrain, with each line sharing the same meter. A ghazal may be understood as a poetic expression of both the pain of loss or separation and the beauty of love in spite of that pain. The form is ancient, originating in ancient Arabic poem in Arabia long before the birth of Islam. The term Ghazal is of North African and Middle Eastern origin. Its root term in Arabic is “gh-zl” and is derived from the Arabian panegyric qasida.

The ghazal spread into South Asia in the 12th century due to the influence of Sufi mystics and the courts of the new Islamic Sultanate. Although the ghazal is most prominently a form of Dari poetry and Urdu poetry, today it is found in the poetry of many languages of the Indian sub-continent.

I gave you 18 Ghazals in Part I starting with Shakeel Badayuni‘s Na milata gham to barbaadi ke afsaane kahan jaate, to Rajinder Krishan‘s Jahan Ara ghazal sung by Talat Mahmood: Phir wohi shaam wohi gham wohi tanhaayi hai. In between I packed ghazals by Kaifi Azmi, Sahir Ludhianvi, Bahadur Shah Zafar, Muztar Khairabadi, Hasrat Mohani, Hasrat Jaipuri, Jaan Nisar Akhtar, Majrooh Sultanpuri, and Farooq Qaiser.

I followed it up with another 18 Ghazals in Part II starting with Mohammad Rafi singing Sahir Ludhianvi‘s ghazal Tum ek baar mohabbat ka imtehaan to do for the 1960 movie Babur, to Lata Mangeshkar singing Jaan Nisar Akhtar‘s Aap youn faaslon se guzarte rahe for the 1977 movie Shankar Hussain. In between I gave you ghazals sung by Mubarak Begum, and ghazals of Mirza Ghalib, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Rajinder Krishan, Gulzar, Bashar Nawaz and Mir Taqi Mir.

I followed the second part with another 16 Ghazals in Part III, starting with Talat Mehmood singing Sardar Jafri’s Shaam-e-gham ki kasam, aaj gamgeen hain ham, Aa bhi jaa, aa bhi jaa, aaj mere sanam…. modified by Majrooh Sultanpuri for the 1953 movie Footpath and ending with Lata Mangeshkar singing Sahir Ludhianvi’s Jurm-e-ulfat pe hamen log saza dete hain, Kaise nadaan hain sholon ko hawa dete hain… for the 1963 movie Taj Mahal. In between I gave you three more ghazals by Talat Mehmood, one sung together by Mohammad Rafi and Mahendra Kapoor, a ghazal of Hassan Kamal, a few of Majrooh sultanpuri, one of Anand Bakshi and a few for which the great music director Roshan composed music.

In Part IV, I gave you 17 Ghazals, starting with Mahendra Kapoor singing Qamar Jalalabadi’s most famous ghazal: Rafta rafta woh hamare dil ke armaan ho gaye for the 1966 movie ‘Hum Kahan Jaa Rahe Hain’ to Shahryar‘s 1981 movie Umrao Jaan‘s ghazal sung by Asha Bhosle: Ye kyaa jagah hai dosto, ye kaun sa dyaar hai. In between, I gave you ghazals by SH Bihari, Shakeel Badayuni, Hasrat Jaipuri, Naqsh Lyallpuri, and Shahryar‘s other ghazals.

Lets resume our journey into the fascinating world of Ghazals.

Ghazal # 71

Noor Jehan

She was born as Allah Wasai on 21 Sep 1926 in Kasur, Punjab

now in Pakistan). She was one of the gretatest and most influential singers of her times and earned the honorific title of Mallika-e-Tarunnam (Queen of Melody). Even though Lata Mangeshakr later emerged as a very versatile singer, Lata would have given anything to have the range of singing that Noor Jehan naturally possessed. She learnt singing under Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, himself a genius.

Lets start with her rendition of Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s famous ghazal that is still regarded as the best rendition ever by Noor Jehan (next only to Awaaz de kahan hai). Her singing style was unmatched.

The ghazal appeared in the 1940 movie Qaidi. Music was composed by Rashid Atre.

Ghazal # 72

Noor Jehan

Since in 1947, she decided to join Pakistan, in order that her ghazals should qualify for Hindi Movies (the current theme of Lyrical), I have to put up her ghazals before partition (though it is a fact that her ghazals sung in Pakistan are also gems).

Here is her most famous one from the 1946 movie Anmol Ghadi in which she acted together with Suraiya and Surendra. It has Naushad’s music. Surendra joins in the second stanza.

Suraiya

It was only later that the honorific title of Mallika-e-Tarunnam was given to Noor Jehan. The original Melody Queen was Suraiya or Suraiya Jamaal Sheikh born on 15th June 1929 in Gujaranwala in Punjab (now in Pakistan).

She continued to stay in India and her love affair with Dev Anand almost ended in their marriage.

She has acted in many movies that she has sung songs for.

Her most famous ghazal has been penned by Kaifi Azmi and has Ghulam Mohammad’s music (he gave music for Pakeezah). It has been sung for the 1961 movie Shama.

Ghazal # 74

Gulzar

Sampooran Singh Kalra was born on 18th Aug 1934 in Jhelum district (now in Pakistan). He started his career as a lyricist at the age of 29 and is the most versatile personality in Hindi movies having tried his hand at direction, story and dialogue writing. He assumed the pen name Gulzar (Rose Garden) and is known widely by that name.

He has written some very fine ghazals in the Hindi movies.

Lets start with his ghazal duet sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar for the 1978 movie Ghar starring Vinod Mehra and Rekha (it is nice to observe the chemistry between them). Music has been composed by RD Burman.

Gulzar

Here is another of Gulzar’s ghazals composed by RD Burman. This is for the 1987 movie Ijaazat starring Naseeruddin Shah, Anuradha Payel and Rekha. The singer is Asha Bhosle.

Naseeruddin Shah and Rekha in the 1988 movie Ijaazat. The scene is of the railway waiting room wherein the separated couple accidentally meet and discover the truth of their lives without each other. The story was based on a Bengali story Jatugriha by Subodh Ghosh

Ghazal #76

Qamar Jalalabadi

Sorry for the three days break necessiated by my being very busy. I return to tell you about another great poet and lyricist Qamar Jalalabadi. You know him best as the lyricist of the songs of the 1958 movie Howrah Bridge starring Ashok Kumar and Madhubala that included the iconic song ‘Aaiye mehrabaan‘ and the best Hindi song with whistling: ‘Dekh kar teri nazar‘.

He was born in Jalalabad near Amritsar in 1919 as Om Prakash Bhandari. He started writing Urdu poetry at the age of seven. In the year 1940 he cane to Poona to try his hand at being lyricist in Hindi movies. His songs in 1942 movie Zamindar were well received especially the one sung by Shamshad Beghum: Duniya mein ghareebon ko aaraam nahin milata.

Qamar Jalalabadi1

He shot to fame in 1958 with Howrah Bridge. In addition to the two songs that I have given you above, Mera naam chin chin choo became super hit.

His song for the 1954 movie Pehali Tarikh: Aaj pehali tarikh hai was played by Radio Ceylon on the first of every month for decades.

He wrote some fine ghazals. His most famous ghazal: Ghazab kiya tere waade pe aitbaar kiya was sung as a non-filmy ghazal by Mohammad Rafi and hence I cannot give you here.

However, the same ghazal was sung by Rajkumari for the 1954 movie Waris starring Talat Mehmood and Suraiyya on Anil Biswas’ s music.

Ghazal #77

Qamar Jalalabadi

In the first post of today I gave you a write-up about this great poet and lyricist who very actively participated in mushairas as a shayar.

Amongst the popular sings he wrote are: Chhaliya mera naam, Ik pardesi mera dil le gaya, Phir tumhaari yaad aayi hai sanam, and Main soya akhiyan meeche.

I have already given you his best ghazal: Ghazab kiya tere waade pe aitbaar kiya.

Here is his ghazal for the 1967 Manoj Kumar movie Upkaar. Even though I am not a fan of Manoj Kumar but Mukesh sung it so well on Kalyanji Ananji’s music.

Ghazal #78

Qamar Jalalabadi

This must rank amongst his best ghazals not only because of the beauty of its lyrics but also because Mohamnad Rafi has sung this so well. I am reminded of it because I just gave you a ghazal composed by Kalyanji Anandji. This is another one composed by him.

It is from the 1966 movie Preet Na Jaane Reet starring Shammi Kapoor with B Saroja Devi.

Ghazal #79

Hemant Kumar

“This is too much” you are bound to tell me, “How can Hemant Kumar, an exponent of Rabindra Sangeet, be associated with Ghazals? He would be as far away from Ghazals as Ludhiana is from London”.

I would then point out that when he as a Music Director would pair with the ace poet and lyricist Shakeel Badayuni whose death-anniversary falls in 20th April, even Hemant da would have no choice but to compose the songs as ghazals.

To the best of my knowledge Hemant da has sung only one ghazal though he composed music for three. At the end of it, I would ask a cognoscenti like you to tell me if I am correct.

The ghazal is from 1963 movie Bin Baadal Barsaat (one of three movies in which Shakeel paired with Hemant da) starring Biswajit and Asha Parekh.

Bin Baadal Barsaat

Hemant da has sung the ghazal on his own music.

Now that the surprise at Hemant da singing a ghazal is over, let me give you another composed by him.

This too is penned by the great Shakeel Badayuni whose death anniversary falls on 20th April. It has been sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Hemant da has given the kind of music that can be only expexted from Madan Mohan.

This is from the 1962 movie Bees Saal Baad starring Waheeda Rehman and Biswajit.

Hemant Kumar

The third surprise ghazal composed by Hemant Kumar was penned by Kaifi Azmi. It appears that when lyricists like Shakeel and Kaifi Azmi wrote, the music directors didn’t have any choice but to compose them into ghazals!

This is from the 1965 movie Faraar and is picturised on Shabnam and Anil Chatterjee. Lata has sung this.

Mahendra Kapoor

He was born on 9th Jan 1934 in Amritsar. His hero was Mohammad Rafi. He worshipped him whilst he learnt classical music under classical singers like Pt. Hussanlal, Pt. Jagannath Bua, Ustad Niaz Ahmed Khan, Ustad Abdul Rehman Khan and Pt.Tulsidaas Sharma. He debuted in V Shantaram’s 1958 movie Navrang. From then onwards, until his death in Mumbai on 27th Sep 2008, he sang some 25000 songs in various languages.

His silky smooth voice was very well suited for ghazals and he sang quite a few of them.

I have already given you a famous ghazal of his enacted by Shashi Kapoor for the 1961 movie Dharmaputra: Bhool sakta hai bhala kaun woh pyaari aankhen.

Many of his ghazals have been penned by Sahir Ludhianvi. This one too is penned by Sahir. It has Ravi’s music and it is from the 1965 movie Kaajal.
