Ek Haseen Shaam Ko Dil Meraa Kho gaya... Raja Mehdi Ali Khan

Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, jab bhi ye nam suna to laga bhala itane rais khanadaan ke charag ko geet likhne ka shauk kaise ho gaya? goki aisa bhi nahin ki hamare raje maharaje is hunar se maharoom rahe hon. turant hi janab vazid ali shah ka khyal jaehan men ubharta hai. par unki milkiyat dilli aur avadh tak faili hui thi par raja saahab ko kya soojhi ki vo apane baap dadaon ki jamidari chhodakar munbiya film indastri ka hissa ban baithe?

Raja saahab ke baare men jaanane ki ichha bahut dinon tak bani rahi par unake anamol geeton aur sangeetakaar madanamohan ke saath unki anupam jodi ke kisson ke aalava kuch jyada haath nahin laga.

Kuch dinon pahle film 'dulhan ek rat ki' ka apana ek pasandida nagma gunaguna raha tha ki yad aaya ki are ye geet bhi to raja saahab ka hi likha hua hai. raja saahab ke baare men mera purana kautuhal, fir jaag utha. is baar un par likhe kuch lekh haath lage. pata chala ki raja saahab, avibhajit bharat ke karamabad ki paidaish hain. pita bachapan men hi gujar gaaye aur mata hebe ji ke sanrakshan men menhadi ali khan pale badhe. maan apane zamane urdu ki kabil shayara ke roop men jaani gayeen. chalis ke dashak men jab vo aakashavani dilli men kaam kar rahe the to munbai se unhen sadaat hasan manto ka bulava aa gaya. manton ne tab hindi filmon men kaam karana shuru kiya tha.

Par raja saahab ne aate hi apani shayari ke jalave dikhane shuru kar diye aisa bhi nahin tha. aapako jaankar hairani hogi ki raja saahab ki film udyog men shuruaat bataur patakatha lekhak ke hui. aur to aur unhonne ek film ke liye chhota sa rol bhi kiya. par patakathalekhan aur abhinaya unhen jyada ras nahin aaya. 1947 ki film do bhaai men raja saahab ko pahali baar geet likhne ka mauka mila . is film ka geet "mera sundar sapana toot gaya..." behad charchit raha. vibhaajan aur dangon ki aag men jal rahe desh men date rahane ka faaisla bhi raja saahab ke bharat ke prati prem ko darshata hai. aur fir film shahid (1950) men deshaprem se otaprot unake likhe us geet ko bhala kaun bhool sakta hai 'vatan ki raah men vatan ke naujavaan shahid ho'.. '

Pachas ka dashak raja menhadi ali khan ke utkarsh ka dashak tha. dashak ki shuruaat men sangeetakaar madanamohan ke saath film 'madahosh' men unki jo safal jodi bani vo 'anapadh', 'mera saya', 'vo kaun thi', 'neela aakash', 'dulhan ek rat ki' aadi filmon men aur poshit pallavit hoti gai.

raja menhadi ali khan ke likhe geeton par nazar rakhne vaale film sameekshakon ka manna hai ki raja ne hi filmi geeton men 'aap' shabd ka prachalan badhaya. masalan unake likhe in geeton ko yad karen... 'aap ki nazaron ne samajha pyar ke kabil mujhe...' ya 'jo hamane dastan apani sunaai aap kyoon roe ' , 'aapane apana banaya meharbani aapki...'. madan mohan ke aalava raja saahab ne o pi naiyar v si ramachandra ke sangeet nirdeshan men bhi behatareen nagme diye. vaise kya aapako pata hai ki 'mere piya ge rangoon vahan se kiya hai telifoon.. ' bhi raja saahab ka hi likha hua geet hai.

Saath ke dashak ke madhya men lakshmikant pyarelal ke saath 'anita' aur 'jaal' jaisi filmen unake filmi safar ki aakhiri filmen thi. julaai 1996 men raja saahab is duniya se kooch kar ge. par unake rache geeton se aaj bhi ve hamare man men samaaye hain. aaj ki ye post us geet ke jikra bina adhoori rah jaaegi jisaki vajah se raja saahab ki yad punah man men aa gai.
film 'dulhan ek rat ki' film ka ye geet mujhe behad pasand hai aur kyoon na ho 'shaamon' se mere lagaav ki baat kya aap sab se chhipi he. aur fir jahan geet men aisi hi kisi shaam ko apane hamasafar ki yaadon men gota lagane ka jikra ho to vo geet kya dilazaeej nahin ban jaayega ?

Madanamohan dvara mukhade ki aaranbhik dhun kamaal ki hai. yahi kaaran he ki is geet ke mukhade ko gunagunana mera priya shagal raha hai. aaj socha mohammad rafi saahab ki makhamali aavaaz men gaaye poore geet ko gunagunane ki koshish karoon. rafi saahab ne jis masti se is geet ko gaya hai ki sun kar hi man jhoom uthata hai aur hoth thirakne lagate hain.



ik haseen.. sha..m ko dil mera... kho gaya
pahle apana, hua karta tha, ab kisi ka... ho gaya

muddaton se.., aa..raju thi, jindagi men.. koi aaye
sooni sooni, jindagi men. koi shama.. jhilamilae
vo jo aae to raushan zamana ho gaya
ik haseen.. sha..m ko dil mera... kho gaya

mere dil ke, karavaan ko le chala hai.. aaj koi
shabanami si. jisaki aankhen, thodi jaagi.. thodi soi
unako dekha to mausam suhaana ho gaya
ik haseen.. sha..m ko dil mera... kho gaya
pahle apana, hua karta tha, ab kisi ka... ho gaya

Mujhe jhel liya hai ! theek hai janab ab rafi ki aavaaz men bhi is geet ko sunavaaye dete hain. vaise film men is geet ko filmaya gaya tha dharmendra v nootan par..
