Mithun Chakraborty in Hason Raja
The Bollywood Mega-Star Mithun Chakraborty doing a film in Bengali called ‘Hason Raja’. ‘Hason
Raja’ is a major feature based on the life and music of Dewan Hason Raja Choudhury (1855-1926). Hason Raja is renowned
as one of the great mystic poets and folksinger of Bangladesh.
The poet’s life was full of drama, colour and romance. He was a man of many contradictions and mysteries.
His ancestors were Hindu Kahatriyas who migrated from Ayoudhya to Bengal in the 16th century. They became rulers of a rural
kingdom and owners of much property in Sylhet and Dhaka. His great-grandfather converted to Islam and the family intermarried
with aristocratic Muslims creating a new dynasty.
Tall and handsome, Hason was a glamorous figure. He inherited the property at an early age and at first indulged
himself in every way: wearing gorgeous clothes:
Seducing women; breeding horses and hawks; hiring musicians and dancing girls.
In his later life he turned away from riches, wore the simplest clothes and devoted himself to the pursuit
of the Divine in every from. Leaving worldly responsibilities he became a wondering Sufi, singing of his love and longing.
His songs and his mysticism are simple and direct, burning with passion and intensity. Drawing on Hindu, Sufi and Buddhist
philosophies and images he fills his songs with powerful longing for spiritual union. This open-ness gives his work a very
special meaning for today, with harmony so threatened by communal divisions. Often he sings as a woman, longing for her lover
– a metaphor for his unquenchable thirst for the divine.
"I’ve died from the scorching fire of love and can’t tolerate more
Whatever direction I look in I see only my Beloved
You are me, I am You. I’ve given up all fear
Hason Raja dances madly"
