PHIR SUBAH HOGI

"Phir Subah Hogi (1958)" a film by Ramesh Saigal - is basically a film version of Fyodor Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment (1866)". From the point of view of Indian scenario, it is an emotional piece of work to inculcate a culture of social justice in tune with the human compassions. The film concentrates on the various malevolent aspects of city life like exploitation, crime, unpleasantness & slums and the struggle of the downtrodden even for their basic needs for their day-to-day living.

The film successfully brings out, in an extremely convincing manner, both the external and the internal conflicts of its characters. It is more or less a
philosophical dealing of the guilt and mental mayhem which go through the mind of the hero who accidentally murders someone. Raj Kapoor, in fact, gave one of his life best performances in this film. The character played by Raj Kapoor was, virtually, internalized by him and rendered mind blowing performance and in a perfectly befitting manner. His performance depicting a man fighting with himself and his guilt was par excellence.

Mala Sinha was in the female lead in the film and this film was amongst the better performances of her career.

Among the supporting cast, Rehman appearing as heros munificent friend who tries to help him out as much as he can and makes the most of it creating a character who though cannot be of much help but walk along as a true friend. Mubarak reflects strong screen presence in playing the role of the police officer trying to exploit the heros mental turbulence and ultimately to make him confess to the murder.

The film had excellent musical score by Khayyam and self-illuminating lyrics by Sahir Ludhianvi.

Some extremely beautiful songs, written by Sahir Ludhianvi with Music by Khayyam were sung by Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle, the most glaring of which were :-

- Aasamaan pe hai khudaa aur zamiin pe ham
- Chiin-o-arab hamaaraa, hindostaan hamaaraa
- Phir naa kije merii gustaakh nigaahii kaa gilaa
- Woh subah kabhii to aayegii, Woh subah kabhii to aayegii

The best part for the song Woh subah kabhii to aayegii, of course was the modification from Woh Subah Kabhi To Aayegi to Woh Subah Hum Hii Toh Laayeinge at the end of the film which depicts Sahir's leaning towards a system of collective change.

Though released way back in 1958, the film still has relevance in the present times. In fact, the problems of poverty, homelessness, exploitation of the poor and corruption have multiplied manifold and even 60 years after of the Independence, we pray Woh Subah Kabhi to Aayegi      (Courtesy: YouTube)
