Today’s first post is the song, Tum bin jaoon kahan (Part 2), from the Bollywood movie, Pyar Ka Mausam (1969). The song has been analyzed on the basis of its context and visualization.
Movie – Pyar Ka Mausam (1969)
The song, Tum bin jaoon kahan (Part 2), from the N H Films’ hit romantic famrama, Pyar Ka Mausam (1969), produced and directed by Nasir Hussain. The movie starred Shashi Kapoor, Asha Parekh, Nirupa Roy, Bharat Bhushan, etc.
Seema is the only child of widower Mohan and is adopted as a child by his boss Sardar Ranjit Singh (Tahir Hussain). He does not have an heir to his estate since his daughter Jamuna (Nirupa Roy) eloped with a poor farmer Gopal (Bharat Bhushan). Ranjit does not get along well with his step-brother Shankar (Madan Puri). Jamuna manages to appease her father and he decides to visit her home. However, their home is burnt down by Shankar with Gopal burning to death and their son Sundar is missing. Jamuna loses her sanity as a result.
Many years later Seema (Asha Parekh) meets a young man named Pyarelal (Shashi Kapoor) in Ooty when she is on an outing with her friends. It is at this time that Pyarelal challenges Seema on a musical contest that would attract some women working in a nearby field and wins by enticing the women with some currency notes.
Pyarelal is actually the grownup Sundar and has come to Ooty with his friend Hamid (Ram Avtar). The 2 friends are sitting on a small parapet wall at the side of a road when a blind Gopal sings this song. Sundar is attracted to the song and approaches the older man.
Song – Tum bin jaoon kahan (Part 2)
The lyrics of the song, Tum bin jaoon kahan (Part 2), were penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri and the music was set by R D Burman.
The song goes, “I can’t go anywhere away from you. Post coming into this world, I have never desired anything else after yearning for you.”
Video – Tum bin jaoon kahan (Part 2)
Cinematography is by Munir Khan.
The video opens with the music beginning and Shashi Kapoor getting attracted to it. He is sitting with Ram Avtar on a wall bordering a lake and a road. Bharat Bhushan is strumming the mandolin and begins to sing this song. He is supposed to be blind.
Bharat Bhushan is selling cigarette packets, sitting on the ground. Men drop coins on the small table in front of him and pick up a packet each. Shashi Kapoor gets attracted to the song and approaches the older actor. The song peters out and the video also ends there.
Kishore Kumar sings this song for Bharat Bhushan. Shashi Kapoor, Ram Avtar and other artists are seen in the video.
There’s no influence of any culture on this song. The song goes slower than the original one and expresses the man’s yearning for his family. The song and the artists are fantastic. The video is watchable for the same.
