Rare gems tribute – Vol. 4

Geeta Dutt

We keep searching for rare and lesser heard gems of Geeta ji and on the eve of her 85th Birth anniversary we are pleased to share some rare gems. We will be posting five songs per each post. All of these have been collected from various sources over several years of painstaking efforts. We are grateful to our dear friend Aditya Pant for sharing these extremely rare songs with us. This is the fourth part in this series.

1) Geeta Dutt, Parshuram – Jai ho vijay ho – Meri Bhabhi (1948), MD – R A Paingankar , Lyrics – Gulshan Jalalabadi.
This is another rare song from her early films, Meri Bhabhi (1948).

2) Geeta Dutt – Jai jagdish hare – Dashavtar (1951), MD – Avinash Vyas, Lyrics – Saraswati Kumar Deepak.

Lyricist Saraswati Kumar Deepak took the religious song Jai Jagdish Hare and gave it the form of Dash avtaars (ten re-incarnations of God Vishnu). This is a very lovely song.

3) Geeta Dutt – Kise apne gham ki – Deewan Ji (1950) , MD – S Banerjee, Lyricist – Not known

A rare song from an obscure film.

4) Geeta Dutt, Mohd Rafi – Jeevan kya hain – Danapani (1953), MD – Mohan Junior, Lyrics- Kaif Irfani.

Another rare duet with Rafi sahab. We are not sure if the MD Mohan Junior is the famous composer Madan Mohan sahab himself.

5) Geeta Dutt, Mohd Rafi, Paro – Kabhi yeh saath na chhoote – Kisi Ki Yaad (1950), MD – Hansraj Behl, Lyrics – Moti B.A.

An extremely rare trio of Geeta Dutt, Mohd Rafi and Paro. Excellent composition by Hansraj Behl ji
