atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Meri jaan ghair ko tum paan khilaayaa na karo

Om Prakash holds a special position amongst the comedy / character artists in the Hindi film world. Hailing from Jammu (born 1919), he started his acting career on stage. Then after a brief stint at the All India Radio in Lahore, he got his first major break in the movies in early 1940s, with the famous producer director DS Pancholi. He did some movies in Lahore, including Daasi, Dhamki, and Aayee Bahaar. After partition, he moved to Bombay. In a career that lasted a little over five decades, he is credited with acting in 300 plus films. Om Prakash has always held out on his own even in the presence of many leading lights of their times, having worked with the three great actors of 50s and 60s, down to working with Big B in the 1980s. And his repertoire is not limited to small, comedy roles only. He has a fair share of pivotal roles that he played in many movies during his career; in fact the success of many movies is attributed to his roles, viz. Chupke Chupke, Julie, Sharaabi, Namak Halaal, Gopi, Sadhu aur Shaitaan, Annadata, Buddha Mil Gaya etc.

This song is from the 1955 Minerva Movietone production Kundan. This is a light song, which one would generally not attribute to Ghulam Mohammed, but yes, the composition is by him. The frolicsome lyrics are by Shakeel Badayuni, and the singing voices are of Mohammed Rafi and Geeta Dutt. The song itself is a light hearted nok-jhonk exchange between a paan seller played by Kum Kum, and one of her customers, played by Om Prakash. As the song starts, and progresses, one is led to believe that Om Prakash is wooing Kum Kum – all the words and actions speak to it. But by the time we come to the end of the song, another player enters the scene, in form of Manorama, who heaves a huge stone at the two musical lovebirds to be. Apparently, Manorama is the betrothed or spouse of Om Prakash, who, in his wayward style is trying to make time with another woman.

The story line apart, just the song itself is fun filled and humorous. Another one to say that Hindi films have a song for practically any situation – so here is one in case you have a need to woo a lady paan seller (or maybe get some free paans from her) :D.

Enjoy this light hearted squabble between two could have been lovers. And remember the lines just in case you come across a lady paan seller. :)


Song-Meri jaan ghair ko tum paan khilaayaa na karo (Kundan) (1955) Singers-Rafi, Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Lyrics

h o o o
o o o o
meri jaan ghair ko tum paan khilaayaa na karo
meri jaan ghair ko tum paan khilaayaa na karo
meri jaan ghair ko tum paan khilaayaa na karo
mere armaan bhare dil ko jalaayaa na karo
o jalaayaa na karo
o jalaayaa na karo

jaao ji muft mein yoon hum ko sataayaa na karo
jaao ji muft mein yoon hum ko sataayaa na karo
jeb khaali ho to bazaar mein aaya na karo
aji aayaa na karo
aji aayaa na karo

tum to nadaan ho jee
tum to nadaan ho kyaa jaano mohabbat kyaa hai
tum to nadaan ho kyaa jaano mohabbat kyaa hai
pyaar sachaa ho to paison ki zaroorat kyaa hai
maang kar paisa mere dil ko dukhaayaa na karo
maang kar paisa mere dil ko dukhaayaa na karo
mere armaan bhare dil ko jalaayaa na karo
o jalaayaa na karo
o jalaayaa na karo

iss zamaane mein bhalaa kaun wafaa karta hai
iss zamaane mein bhalaa kaun wafaa karta hai
aaj kal pyaar takey ser bikaa kartaa hai
pyaar ke geet mere saamne gaayaa na karo
pyaar ke geet mere saamne gaayaa na karo
jeb khaali ho to bazaar mein aaya na karo
aji aayaa na karo
aji aayaa na karo
meri jaan gair ko tum paan khilaayaa na karo
jeb khaali ho to bazaar mein aaya na karo
aji aayaa na karo
aji aayaa na karo

Sudhir ji,
A very good article on Omprakash.
May I add some more different information about him ?
Omprakash,a Kashmiri Chhibber born in Lahore had learnt Music from a guru and joined Lahore All India Radio.He was known as Fateh Din and his programmes on Radio were very popular in Lahore and Punjab.
Spotted by Dalsukh Pancholi in a Marriage function where Omprakash was regaling the audience in Lahore,he was cast in Panchloi’s Daasi.Omprakash had already done a silent movie ‘Shareef Badmash’ earlier.
After Dhamkee and Aayee Bahar,he came to Bombay and did a villain’s role in Lakhpati.Then there was no looking back.
He was successful as actor but a failure as a producer.He produced,with C.Ramchandra(his fast friend),Duniya gol hai,Jhanjar and Lakeeren.All flopps.Then he singally produced,Bhaiyyaji,Gateway of India,Chacha Zindabad,Sanjog and Jahan Ara.Again all flopped.
He lived in Chembur,next to Ashok Kumar and Nalini Jaiwant.His wife Prabha died in 1991.Having no children of his own ,he gave all his money to Brother Ram prakash’s 5 children.
More than for his 307 films,Omprakash will be remembered for his helpful nature.

About KUNDAN. This film was based on Victor Hugo’s “Les Miserables”,a french novel.The cast was Sohrab Modi-as Kundan,Sunil Dutt,Nimmi,Pran,Omprakash,Murad,Manorama etc.
This was a story of a circumstantial criminal,who tries hard to get reformed and sacrifices his life to save his sister’s daughter and her lover.
The entire focus was on how the society prevents him to reform and how he succeeds.
