Hasrat Jaipuri – Beyond Shankar Jaikishan: 1959
CID Girl (1959)
Anand Bakshi was the other lyricist for the film.
Ik Baat Sun Matwale Kahate Hai Nazar Ke Pyale – Asha Bhosle
This is a signature club song. Roshan has successfully tried hand with using western rhythm instrument in Mukhada and then switching over to Dholak as rhythm instrument in the main lines Anataras, ending with western instrument rhythm instrument. Hasrat Jaipuri has penned lyrics pregnant with the message enshrouded for those whom the song is actually addressed.
Akiyon MeinDil Khoya Batiyon Mein Dil Khoya, Main Ise Dhoondh Loongi Baabu – Asha Bhosle
We have here a club song that is peppier. The song is straightforward a tantalizing one
Qaidi No.911 (1959)
Hasrat Jaipuri was the sole lyricist for the film. Meethi Meethi Baton Se (Lata Mangeshkar) and
Pyar Bhari Yeh Ghatayein (Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar) are two well-known songs.
Tere Teer Ko Hamne Pyar Se Dil Mein Rakh Liya – Lata Mangeshkar, chorus
This time Dattaram comes up with club song. However, playback singer is Lata Mangeshkar, who might have agreed to sing the song to help bolster Dattaram’s career.
Tune Mera Maine Tera Dil Le Liya … Do Nain Mila Ke Haye Diwana Kar Diya – Lata Mangeshkar
This one is street-play genre song. This genre was also a popular genre in those days. Dattaram smartly blends his ‘theka’ with the orchestration pieces of harmonium.
Yeh Khile-Khile Taare Hamare Hain Ishare Aaja Re Aaja – Lata Mangeshkar, Mehmood
This is again a peppy club song that is a blend of tantalization that is impregnated with hidden message to a particular client – dressed up as an Arab, which itself can be a masquerade.
Hasrat Jaipuri is sole lyricist here too. Kehta Hai Pyaar Mera (Twin version – Lata Mangeshar + Hemant Kumar). Dil Ne Use Maan Liya (Mukesh) and Bole Ye Dil Ka Ishaara (Manna Dey, Lata) are the well-known songs.
Aside Trivia: There are at least three other films with this title, a 1946 film (Music: Ramchandra Pal; Lyrics – Anjum Pilibhiti), a 1976 film, which also has Hasrat Jaipuri as sole lyricist with Laxmikant Pyarelal as music director and a 1993 film9 Music: Anand Milind; Lyrics – Sameer).
Chhoti-Si-Dulahaniya Ke Shaadi, Pyari Si Dulhaniya Ki Shadi – Lata Mangeshkar, chorus
Here we have a (all-kid girls) party song so ably created by Dattaram and Hasrat Jaipuri weaving in simple events with meaningful lyrics of a marriage function.
Chham-Chham Mein Naachu Jhumati Bahar Mein, Jane Kis Khayal Mein Baje Man Ke Taar – Lata Mangeshkar
The young heroine is bubbling with the first acceptance of her love –
Jane Kyu Ye Jiya Lehraye
Raz Hi Samajh Na Aaye….
Haye Re Sharm Si Lagi Haye Re Na Bola Jaye
Haye Re Na Bola Jaye Chhalke Hai Pyar Haye
Jeene Wale Khushi Se Jiye Ja Apne Ansoo Tu Khushi Se Piye Ja – Mohammad Rafi, chorus
Dattaram had so masterfully used choir chorus in the counter melody in this background song. Hasrat Jaipuri dutifully pens lyrics that fits the situation like a T. Mohammad Rafi is his usual theatrics best for such songs.
Kalyanji Veerji Shah
O Tera Kya Kehna (1959)
The film had six songs, penned by four lyricists Gulshan Bawra, Indeevar, Shor Niyazi and Farooq Qaiser, with one song each, in addition to two songs by Harat Jaipuri. No less than eight playback singers have been deployed for these six songs.
Mein Hoon Miss Lali Dekho Nahi Dena Jhatka – Suman Kalyanpur
This appears to be a club song.
Baabu Na O Baabu Na … Dil Maange Dil De DooN, Jaan Maange Jaan De DooN, Teri Ada Pe Main Cheen Aur Japan De DooN – Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor, Suman Kalyanpur
The use of Baabu Na (No Please O Baabu) is a very clever ploy. The opening lines of the song set stage for the two competitors, at a club performance, by openly bidding for the common prize of a beauty.
Satta Bazaar (1959)
That Gulshan Bawara (3 songs), Indeevar (2 songs) and even Shailendra (1 songs) are the other lyricists, indeed makes the film as an ideal case to know why these lyricists were chosen for the film. Interestingly, it is also noteworthy that after Anandji joined his elder brother. And the duo was well established, Hasrat Jaipuri has worked with Kalyanji Anandji off and on in films like Jee Chahta Hai (1965, sole lyricist), Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani (1970, 2 songs), Rakhwala (1971, 1 song), Apradh(1972, 1 song) etc.
Aside Trivia: The present film was produced by Ravindra Dave under his production banner ‘Nagina films’. Laxmikant was the assistant to the music director, Kalyanji Veerji Shah – thus both hyphenated respective partners – Pyarelal and Anandji- have to yet to join the respective duo teams.
Kaheti Hai Meri Aankhein, Ye Jaadu Bhari Aankhein, Hua Hai Tum Se Pyar…., Tumhari Yaad Aaye Jiya Ko Tadpaye.- Lata Mangeshkar
Hasrat Jaipuri’s signature beginning with the initial couplet- Sakhi – is seamlessly joined with the principal opening line Teri Yaad Aaye.. in this mujra song
Zara Thehro Ji Abdul Gaffar Rumal Mera Le Ke Jaana… O Main To Layi HuN Jamun Se Bahar, Rumal Mera Leke Jaana – Mohammad Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur
Kalyanji has set the song to the Gujarati folk tune of a garba in this essentially a street play song, rendered by the two Pathani-dressed artists. Hasrat Jaipuri has successfully weaved in the lyrics that spell sweet tit-a-tat between the two protagonists – Sabita Chatterji and Johnny Walker.
Aside Trivia: The sad-faced hero is Suresh, who may be better recalled as an actor who had sung Suhani Raat Dhal Chuki (Mohammad Rafi; Dulari, 1949; Music – Naushad; Lyrics- Shakeel Badayuni)
We will continue with Hasrat Jaipuri’s songs for other music directors in our next (year) episode.
