atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

About this blog


I am Atul,an India based male in my 40s.My interests are similar to the interests of a typical Indian- Bollywood, cricket, politics etc.

I already have two blogs under my belt- squarecutsblog.blogspot.com is where I discuss music in general, and I used atulblog.wordpress.com for humour. Now I felt the need for a blog where I could express my admiration of certain bollywood songs that I simply love.

In this blog I will discuss some wonderful songs that I have had the privilege of listening to, over the years.Here I will discuss the songs, (including its lyrics and its translation into English), and my reasons why I like the song.I hope that there are many like minded people who will find these discussions interesting.

Your comments are welcome. Or you may email me at squarecut.atul@gmail.com

Update ( on 3 october 2008 )
I thank all the visitors of this blog for their encouragement. This blog has been regularly clocking more than 300 visits daily ( best being 506 visits a day). The home page now has a google page rank of 4. Many individual posts ( posted before 14 septeber 2008 ) now have google page ranks of 3 and some even 4. All this is entirely because of the readers of this blog.

I take this opportunity to thank all my visitors and I assure you all that I will try to live up to your expectations in future also. Please give your suggestions so that I may be able to improve this blog, which is a labour of love for me.

Update on 1 January 2009

I wish all my readers and their near and dear ones a happy new year. May this new year be the best ever for you.

I thank all my readers for patronising this blog and encouraging me by their visits, comments, and farmaishes.

Thanks to your encouragement, this labour of love now has as many as 480 outstanding Bollywood songs ( as on 1 january 2009) and growing at a good pace. This blog is clocking over 500 visits daily ( maximum being 995 in one day).

I thank all my visitors once again and assure you all that I will continue to bring more such songs regularly for your reading, listening and viewing pleasures.

Update on 12 november 2009
Now, the blog has over 2150 songs as on now. The traffic has also increased. Now the blog gets over 1500 hits a day on an average and the highest hit in a day has been 2301. The blog does very well on search engines for relevant searches. It is heartening to see the blog growing so nicely. Hopefully we will have exciting days ahead of us.

Update on 28 march 2010
Since november 2009, when I posted my last update, I have slowed down in my rate of posting. Still, 2365 number of songs as of now is quite a lot of songs.

I find that the number of visitors to this blog has stabilised to an average figure of around 1500 visits daily (2320 being the highest number of visits in a day), which works out to just under 50,000 visitors per month. This blog has received nearly 7,00,000 visits since it was started.

I may have slowed down, but Hopefully it is just the lull before the storm. There are still tens of thousands of great songs yet to be covered which will take a lifetime. In other words, I will be kept busy posting songs for a long long time and there is no possibility that I will be running out of songs to post any time soon.

Acknowledgements:

In this blog, I embed audio/video links from sites like youtube and dailymotion etc. I gratefully acknowledge the efforts and contributions that the uploaders of these songs make in making these songs available to us for our pleasure and enjoyment. Without these links, this blog would not be what it is.

I also provide information about songs that is culled from different sources, mostly by googling. I acknowledge their contributions too, which helps me provide some useful information about the songs that I discuss.

PS- Sometimes I get comments where new visitors ask me to send them various songs. I will like to point it out that this blog is a place to discuss songs and I am not in a position to send links to songs or the songs themselves. As can be seen, this blog is a labour of love where I discuss songs with people (many of them becoming good internet friends with me), and not a place to share download links.

Disclaimer- I would like to believe that I have a sense of humour. Raja in fact has coined a term “Atulism” for this kind of humour. I often love to make light hearted comments about movies, songs, actors etc in my discussion of the songs. They are needed to be taken as such and should not be misconstrued as anything serious. I love to make light hearted observations and those observations need to be treated as such.

It has been made amply clear that this blog is a labour of love where we value the oldtime virtues of honesty and transparancy. By now we have a core group of regulars who are making invaluable contributions voluntarily through various means, viz sending lyrics, writeups, informations etc. Music lovers who are willing to join this music bandwagon are welcome.

Music lovers who are willing to contribute lyrics should ensure that their contributions are original in the sense that they should have listened to the lyrics themselves and noted them down. Please do not send incorrect/ incomplete lyrics copied from elsewhere on internet calling them your contributions. We in this blog are very particular about the completeness and accuracy of lyrics that are being posted.

Oh, I missed the “turn of the counter” that day but I am no less thrilled for the stupendous achievement of this 4 million milestone! Like every drop makes up an ocean, every hit makes up this milestone. It doesn’t come by magic!

It also shows how much loved this blog is – all around the world. Sure, there are other song blogs/sites out there but this place has earned a reputation for itself. A reputation of reliability for what’s put out here, a reputation for covering long-forgotten yesteryear songs, a reputation for being a place where ALL are welcome to share their thoughts and passion for old Hindi songs.

All this is thanks primarily to Atul and his dedication. Day in and day out. And of course others who’ve joined the “caravan”. It is a moment to celebrate, no doubt.

I’ll try to keep an eye out for the 5-million number. ;-) I don’t think it will be a very long wait. ;-)

You posted “Kaun veerane mein dekhega bahar,” by K L Saigal, only yesterday on Dec 21, 2012, and the search facility provided on the blog does NOT show it! Can we not look for the songs posted, datewise?

This song was posted on 6 august 2011 and not on dec 21 , 2012. It is a Non Film Song and it can be seen in moviewise list under “Non Movie Songs”.

Atulji,

Please ref to #305 above.It dates a year back. I was not aware that correspondence is going there also. Just the other day I happened to go thru’ it. I feel so sorry as I could not be of any use to you earlier. But better late than never.
More than 700 songs (audio) from bollywood films I have classified under 81 raagaas, and they recorded on a DVD. I can send this DVD to an address suggested by you.I do not know whether they are available on YT.
On your suggestion I shall send it to you by courier. If it interests you I may add that I have prepared a CD of 50 ASHA-LATA (only) duets.
I know you are very prompt in leaving a reply.

hullo atul

“Morni ne seekhaa, hamse hi seekha”Iss gaane ke tag mein movie kaa naam “Jaag utha insaan” Ke badle wrongly “Insaan jaag uthaa” aisaa likhaa hai.
Issee wajah se ye gaanaa “list of songs movie wise” mein wrongly “Insaan jaag uthaa” movie kaa hai, aisaa dikhthaa hai,

Please, whenever you find time Correct keejiye.

Atul ji,
please tell me what steps are to be taken if I want to see and read songs posted on say,14th march 2012 ?

Arunji,
On the right side, after the “Category of Songs” and just above the Blogroll, there is a category called “Archives”. I use that, as it is by month, so very easy to search song of a particular day. Atulji may show you the easiest way better than this.

Go to the archives section on the right column (as described by Khyati jee). Select the month and click. You will get the songs for that month in descending order (ten songs in a page). If there are say 200 songs in that month, then there will be twenty such pages and you can reach these pages by clicking the “older entiries” or “newer entries” link. It sounds confusing at first, but it is easy once you learn how to do it.

Atul ji,
I used to do that for last 2 years now,but these days the “older entries’ or ‘Newer Entries” does not appear,that is why I asked you.
Anyway,i will keep on trying the same way….
-AD

Atul ji,
Main hun alladin…..Sargam-1950 posted on 23-1-2013 not yet included in list of yearwise songs or even Moviewise songs.
-AD

I am surprised how that happened. Now I have rectified it.

Atul ji,
I remember faintly that 1 or 2 songs of Ustad Pedro like-La bulbula were posted by Sudhir ji,but this film name does not appear in the list nor is the song in yearwise song list.
Am I right about Ustad Pedro -51 ?
-AD

No song from this movie have been discussed so far.

Atul ji,

Another long pending correction:

Now the music director`s name of Arth(1982) songs has to be credited with the name of Music duo Jagjit Singh & chitra singh (and NOT as a creation of kuldeep singh)

Again while we run the option list of movies alphabetically, the name in front of 3 songs of Arth is displayed as creations of Kuldeep singh, Which has to be corrected as Jagjit singh & chira Singh

I just posted your link on my FB page, Hope that is OK with you.
Great blog and a treasure for music lovers like me , Thanks

Eventhough they get added to the blog,comments written in this section & Anniversary dates section-> are not appearing under Heading “Recent Comments”,

Comments only from the main page were being shown because that was the default option. Now I have enabled comments from other pages too to be visible in the recent comments section.

Atul ji,
The song-tera jalwa jisne dekha…from Film -Laila majnu-1945,posted on 19-12-2013, is being shown as song of 1953. Please do the needful.

Atul ji,

” list of songs-moviewise” is showing only upto alphabet A,not beyond it.
I have tried 10 times since 6 am today.
please do the needful.

Since the page was loading slowly because of its large size, I have divided it into parts. Initially only movies of letter A are visible. At the bottom of the page, you will find numbers 2, 3, 4 etc written. Clicking on them will take you to the other portions of the page.

The same has been done with the MD wise song list page as well.

Thanks.

Atul ji,
The column of ” post by…” on the Home page right hand side,shows a figure of 278 in my case. It will be 279 with today’s article.
Please look into it.

Dear Atul

I really appreciate your efforts in discussing songs.I am also a very active listener of old songs and have enjoyed your posts here.I wonder how are you able to find time for these songs.

Recently I heard few songs and was thrilled as these songs were rare hits.i am quoting few for your consideration and comments if possible.

1. This is Lata Rafi duet “Sun to lo mera afsaana” from Film Raat ki Rani

2.Rafi songs ” Chal chal re musafir chal” and “Jo ik bar keh do “from Film Pooja

3 A non film song “Punarjanam mein miloongi balam ” composed by OP Nayyar.

4.Suraiya Surinder duet “Teri Nazar mein main rahoon” This is one of my most favourite song.

Hope a response from your side.

Dear Atul

I am so thankfull for your reply. Honestly I was not expecting a reply, based on my experience with some other blogs,And what a reply.No words can express for my thanks to you.While watching the song” Teri Nazar mein” i can say definitely that the song was picturised on Surinder and not Suresh as was mentioned in the para on the song.I saw Surinder as hero opposite Noorjehaan in Anmol Ghadi.Surinder like Saigal was a singer hero of that era.

I am really amazed as to how you have so beautifully organised this blog.I consider myself a real mad hindi old film song buff. I wonder what madness you have for this blog. I read somewhere that you may be a very fast driver , there is someone ahead of you.Hatsoff ATUL.

Ashok Mehta

I am very fond of this non film song composed by OP Nayyar .The song is ” Punarjanam Mein Miloongi Balam Ankhiyan Neer na Aaye”.Can I have your comments on this song which is perhaps the best OP Song according to me.Few years back this song was not on YT and somehow this song came to my mind the reason being I might have heard this song on radio long long ago but the haunt of the song remained with me.This is the greatness of this rare melody.

Ashok Mehta

Dear Atul ji

Its quite some time that I did not receive your comments on my above post ( serial 37 dated 09.05.14) i am sure it escaped your attention or I missed it.

Ashok Mehta

Mehta ji,

Here is your song-Punarjanam mein milungi balam- sung by N.L.Puri and composed by O P Nayyar….enjoy

-AD

Shri Atulji (squarecut.atul@gmail.com) you have no idea how many blessings you must have received for the stupendous work you have done in keeping this blog with such treasures. May God shower you with many more laurels, good health and joy.

Thanks a lot. Your comment made my day.

Like most music fans I search for old long lost music. The Radio Ceylon programme signature tunes are on the internet but details are incomplete. I would like to know from which film was the signature tune for ” Badalte Huwe saathi” taken. Thanks

you can see it on the vinyl cover image of the record, the link of which I have given below:

I hope the following visual proof is enough for us for the correction.

Post on Diwali ki raat song Zindagi Kis Mod Par gives details about Music Maestro Snehal Bhatkar.Similarly post on Lahore song Us Dil Ki Kismat Kya Kahiye describes in depth about Nargis.And so on many more personalities have been discussed along with some song or the other.At a later date,in future,if I want to check for any personality,how do I remember which personality has been discussed in which song.Any solutions?

Yes it is a problem. I am trying to work out a solution to this issue.

Thanks Atulji for taking this task. It will help a lot. :)

Create a separate tag for personality discussed in a post, for example for above mentioned, Info_Nargis or Info_Snehal Bhatkar, etc. Then create a master page Info_People or something, which would list all Info_* pages alphabetically or in some order.

Atul ji,
In one of my recent posts,I have mentioned that i have started preparing an Index of Personalities and other topics discussed in my Posts(about 330 articles). This work once started took away my breath,as it is a monumental and very very time consuming exercise. However,i am determined to see it completed. So far i have coverd 150 articles. let us see when this will be completed. Once this is done,i will send it to you,so that you can make an Index or a separate page for it or whatever way you want to do it. Other writers’ topics also can be added to this list to make it a comprehensive one.
It will be almost like an Encyclopedia for students of music History and Films.

Arunji,
All Atulites have many proofs to prove to the world of Hindi Cinema your love and passion for Hindi Cinema. This one adds to that bucket. :) Proud to be part of this ASAD family and thankful to Atulji for giving us the pleasure.

Love
Khyati

I am surprised that I have not yet commented on this page :). Koi gal nahin… ab kar dete hain :). Atul ji’s blog has been by far one of the best things that could happen to me. If it was not for this blog, my knowledge of old hindi songs could have at the best been around 700-800 songs. Now we are already at more than 10,000 songs. Kudos Atul ji for your dedication, perseverance and patience to deal with us the bandwagon :). Thank you.

10th October is the 50th death anniversary of Late Sri Guru Dutt.I was expecting a post dedicated to him on this day.

hullo rakeshji
i agree with you. there should have been a post dedicated to Guru Dutt yesterday. but i am sure there must have been some valid reason on Atul’s part that this didn’t happen. like things which normal people do— family, go to work etc. plus festival season output is always low. Kyun Atulji am i right?

Atul ji

If we click on below mentioned song(under the option of “List of songs-movie wise”,
