Movie – Albela (1951)
The song Haseenonse mohobbat ka… appeared in the Bhagwan Art Productions’ romedy Albela (1951) directed by Bhagwan Dada and produced by Bhagwan Dada and Rajnarayan Dubey. The movie starred Bhagwan Dada, Geeta Bali, etc.
Pyare (Bhagwan) is a day dreamer and wants to be popular and earn a lot of money. But, he belongs to a poor family and the family members are in the process of collecting money for the only sister Bimla’s (Bimla Kumari) marriage. When Pyare returns home, his father (Badri Prasad) requests him to arrange for Rs.300-400 for the marriage. Pyare promises the same.
The next day, Pyare gets fired for not concentrating in his job as a peon. He also gets thrown out of his home. When he tries to join a theater group, the manager (Sunder) tell him to leave his address and they would contact him. He does not have a place to stay, so he leaves it at that. Pyare joins a pair of street musicians and tries to earn his living by singing this song.

Rajinder Kishan penned the lyrics of Haseenonse mohobbat ka… and C Ramchander composed its music.
The man declares that girls are responsible for men becoming homeless due to the love they have for the girls.
Video – Haseenonse mohobbat ka
The cinematography is by Shankar A Palav. Dance choreography is by Surya Kumar.
The video begins with an actor playing the harmonium and Bhagwan Dada beginning to sing this song. The song attracts the bystanders. Bhagwan Dada also begins to dance. Sunder comes out of the theater premises and is struck with wonder as Bhagwan Dada sings and dances. Soon, the song peters out and the video also ends as he stops to dance.
C Ramchander has sung for Bhagwan Dada. Sunder and other actors look on.
This typically filmi song is a representative of the old times. But, I wonder why this song was placed here. It appears out of context. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
