atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Readers farmaishes

Seeing that I receive farmaishes (requests) from my readers , It would be a good idea to have a separate page for that. So here is this page. Please use it to give your farmaishes for songs that you may like me to include in the blog. Just make sure to check that the song asked by you is not yet posted. You may refer to the pages that shows the complete lists of posted songs (by movie/ by music director/by year- as the case may be) for reference.

Thanks !

In your directory of films,I tried to locate Ranjit Movietone film’ Pardesi'(1942) but could find,this film has some good songs namely one duet,its opening lines Dahiwali hamari gali aiyo kasam tohe Ramji ki’ this song was very popular in those days,we had a HMV gramophone at our home and often use to paly repetitively ,it was good innocent fun!!
I have tried on different links to find this song but could not trace it,if
any of your film enthusiastics/fans have any information about this song.
Thanks again Sir.

Three songs of “Pardesi” (1941) are available in the blog. Some more songs from this movie are available on internet but the song mentioned by you does not seem to be available online as of now.

The three songs of this movie that are available in the blog are:

I have a 78-rpm record of this song in my library. I can email you a smaller size attachment.

bas mein karke bebas ka gaye film padmani 1948

I have one song many years old ” aare de daan Choote Grahan ” I only know this line of song .Any help or name of the film will be appreciated.

As many as 209 bhajans have been posted so far.

Can you post the song “Jadon teri duniya…” from the film “Sassi Punnu” (1968)?

This blog is for Hindi movie songs (as defined in HFGK). The movie “Sassi Punnu” (1968) is not a Hindi movie.

Here is a rare song from the movie Sher-e-Baghdad(1957)….I would like to know if this was the first movie where anand bakshi was the lyricist since bhala aadmi came in 1958 and this movie released in 1957….this song though was written and tuned by Jimmy & sung by Geeta Dutt –

Sharma ji,
The above song is written by James singh aka Jimmy and NOT by Anand Bakshi.
What probably was meant by you was a song in film ‘ Silver king’-57 ” Gaadiwaan kheench,zindagi ki gaadi”,which was Bakshi’s FIRST song written as Anand only.

Thanks for the info…i’ve mentioned jimmy as the writer….according to hindigeetmala and myswar there is a song sung by Shamshad Begum called ‘Vale Balle Vayi O Vale Vayi’ written by Anand Bakshi…this was the song i had in mind…but you’ve cleared my doubt…thanks

Can anyone provide any mail id or other contact details of Mr Atul or Arunkumar Deshmukh

It is written in the about page, viz.


The Wiki page for Kabban Mirza has a reference to a song “is pyar ki basti mein/hum rahte hain masti mein/duniyan hamein kya samjhe/duniyan hamein kya jaane” that was supposed to have been sung by Kabban Mirza for the movie Sheeba.

While there is another movie, with almost the same word (Jungle King, 1954, see ), I wondered if there is ANOTHER version of that song that was sung by Kabban Mirza…. May I request that this song, if so sung by Kabban Mirza, be include in the blog?

Thank you

Atul ji,Reference to Kabban Mirza reminds me of the song sung by Kabban Mirza in late sixties, “Unke baghair jee ke Bhala kya karenge hum”. I think it was from Captain Azad. I could not find it on YouTube. In case you have it, lease post.

Pradeep ji,Kabban Mirza was associated with Jungle King as Assistant Director. I don’t know whether he was the same Kabban Mirza. The singer Kabban Mirza was a part time singer and full time announcer on Vividh Bharati. Those who have listened to Vividh Bharati in late sixties and early seventies may remember him for his easy, friendly manner of speaking. He was less popular than Amin Sayani, but was more natural and his style was laced with gentle humour. Today’s RJs can learn a thing or two from his announcements to avoid the irritating loudness we hear daily on radio.

Neeraj ji, thank you, I did not know that he (or a Kabban Mirza) was associated with Jungle King. I did, however, know that the rich, humorous voice was that of Mirza saab. As you said, today’s RJ’s tend to be rather intrusively loud.

Hello !

I suggest a new category called ‘ Mahabaleshwar Songs ”

Mahabaleshwar & Panchgani, in 1970’s , were cool , pleasant, relaxing & unspoilt .
During those years , a lot of songs were shot there .
The movies were mostly in colour & songs (most of them ) melodious .

Those, like me ,who have seen Mh’shwar in 70’s ,now regret it’s current state.
Anyway, the world has moved .
The duets , with just hero & heroine singing around trees & flowered bushes , are no more.
Neither that Mahabaleshwar-panchgani exist.

Those video songs are the only link to that beautiful hill station .

I can suggest two songs to start with –

Kabhi Raat din hum door the – from ‘ Amne Samne’

Aaye din bahar ke title song.

Both songs have a common location , on the way to Arthure seat point.

Please consider my request.

Can anyone provide any information regarding Actors Shahu Modak & Manhar Desai.

Can anybody please say which film music or song has been used as the signature tune for old Radio Ceylon ” Badalte huwe Saathi”

Acharya ji ,signature tune used for Badlte huwe Sathi program on slbc is from film Chandni chawk `s Dance music. .Composer Roshan lal Nagarth. HMV has also released 78 Rpm record for same. dance sequence.

Thank you; see, though we do not know each other and may never meet, love for music had brought us together. Good luck and best wishes. Pramod Acharya Date: Sat, 22 Nov 2014 07:47:49 +0000 To:

Hello Atul,

What a Goldmine, this site of yours. Absolutely loving it.

I need some help locating a song. I have been searching for quite a while and I cannot seem to locate it. Google throws up wild suggestion.

All I remember are the first two lines.

yahi khwaish hai tum mujhe dekha karo. Aur meri jaan mai tumhe dekha karl.

It is from a really old movie that aired on Doordarshan in the mid 90s.

I don’t remember its name nor any of its actors. I just thought you might know !

It was also used in an TV Ad sometime in the 2000s.

Looking forward to the gems !

Hello Singhs,
The song you are looking for is the nautanki from Teesri Kasam. While you will get this herd with excellent write up and meaningful intro.,, if you want it immediately you can find it on youtube in my channel “neerajmital”. The song is in two parts, each has a different style and tempo. Here is the link.

Hello Neeraj. what a surprise ! I know the movie and its songs but I never imagined the song was from this Teesri Kasam. Greatly appreciate the help !

I was surprised to see that only three songs out of minimum eight of RK’s Bobby are on the blog. We can hear the remaining on YT but without intro from some one of you we don’t feel like listening.( We then feel that it is our own) Please can you do something ?

Recently I watched on YOUTUBE an old Sohrab Modi’s Prithvivallbh film which has some melodious songs, one which I liked ‘Tailap Ki Nagari Mein Jana Nahin,Gana Bajana Nahin’,I have browse your library and could not find any songs of this film, interestingly this film music director were Saraswati Devi and Rafiq Gaznavi,this film was produced in 1943 storey based on famous Gujarati author and politician Sri Kahnaiyalal M Munshi.

Can someone post this song of Shatranj-69 with the English translation?

Khyati ji,

The Lyrics are like this- baktamma baktamma baktamma
yekada potora yekada potora ikada ikada ra
yenkana yenkana yenkana yenkana

yekad potora yekad potora ikad ikad ra
yenkana yenkana yenkana yenkana
yekad potora yekad potora ikad ikad raare

oye jani pasha bakthamma bakthamma
ram jani pasha bakthamma bakthamma
mai aaj bajane wala hu tere dil ka tasha bakthamma
dil ka tasha bakthamma bakthamma
yenkana yenkana bakthamma bakthamma bakthamma oh bakthamma
yenkana yenkana yenkana yenkana
ikad potora ikad potora ikad ikad ra
baktamma baktamma baktamma
ikada potora ikada potora ikada ikada ra

mere hosh udha diye ye kar yu kar na
aankho se pila de yu kar na yu kar na
masti me duba kar dil ko mere diwana bana de yenkana yenkana
bakthamma bakthamma yenkana yenkana bakthamma oh bakthamma
baktamma baktamma baktamma
ikada potora ikada potora ikada ikada ra
yenkana yenkana yenkana yenkana
ikad potora ikad potora ikad ikad ra

tujhe apna banau baktamma baktamma
teri pyari pyari surat ko palko me chupau ye kar na

BATKAMMA is a Deity in Telangana State and there is a hugh festival celebrated in Telangana area for Batkamma.The language used in this song is Telugu (Yakkada=where,Potau=going,Ikkada=here,Raa=come)
The lyrics are actually meaningless and there are many spelling mistakes too in it. I have , however, corrected the First para and here is its translation-
Batkamma-3 where are you going,come here
Venkanna,where are you going,come here
Chinnamma where are you going,come here
Venkanna,where are you going,come here

Same way the entire song goes.
Mehmood has sung few more songs in other films also,having word
‘ Bathkamma’. In one of my comments,on this Blog,sometime back,I have given detailed explanation on it.
Hope,you got what you wanted….atleast to some extent.


ps–The song ‘Ramiah vastavaiyya also is similar…meanig Ramaiyya,will you come ? That is also Telugu.

Thank you Arunji
for this much of information about the song.

Khyati ji ne mere mann ki baat aapko likh dee, aur aapne uss khwahish ko pooraa kar diyaa

one more confusion,
whether this “bathkamma” is the same word as in the case of Raj kumar(Shankar Jaikishan-Lata/asha-dance song)
song “Naach rey mann bakkamma or badkamma or bathkamma or bakthamma ??

Sorry for bothering you for more about this.

Thanks again

All are same.

Arun ji

Thanks again


Oh Arunji,
I have no words to say thank you for all the work you have done for me. So much details you have provided just for me. Initially I had a feeling that this song may be like a showpiece but now after understanding the meaning of those words, your comment of the lyrics being meaningless is justified.
I never knew that Ramaiah (or ramiah) vastavaiyya are Telugu words. Question is why Shailendra ji used Telugu words in this song as any character of this movie is not from the south part. The song of Shatranj is relevant to Mehmmod’s character.
Thodi pareshaani aur de rahi hoon aapko –
What does “Muthukodi kawadi hadaa” means? The song is from Do Phool.
Can we add this song of Shatranj to our main page? Arunji has provided the full lyrics with the explanation.


Khyati ji,
Thanks for your comments.
” Muthukodi kawadi hadaa” is actually
” Muthu kodakka Vaarihara “.
Here,Muthu is the name and the meaning is ‘ will you come by to kiss me ?’.
In Shri 420 song,the MD was Shanker-Jaikishen. Shanker Raghuwanshi was from Hyderabad,hence the Telugu words.


Thank you for the correct words Muthu kodakka Vaarihara and it’s meaning. If Muthu is the name then I can replace it by any name…. ;) right? Dekhti hoon ki hamaare pati parmeshwar par iska asar hota hai ki nahin… :lol:
Shanker of SJ duo was from Hyderabad is news for me.

hullo Arunji/ Khyatiben
but “Muthu” in kerala and Tamil Nadu means Pearl also. so will this mean that “Muthu kodakka Vaarihara” is “will you come and give me a pearl?”

Although I have been reading interesting information from your website for a number of years, I have posted occasional comments only during last two years.

I would like to know if the following is possible (your response to my e-mail address will be appreciated).

1. Is it possible for me to contact Mr. Arunkumar Deshmukh directly? If so, would you be kind enough to forward his e-mail address?

2. I would like to communicate some direct comments to Mr. Atul. The current method of communication means my comments are automatically posted. Is there a way to contact Mr. Atul?

I enjoy the website. Hope to hear from you. soon.

my email id is mentioned on the about page. It is

Atul ji , Naman

I am an avid visitor of your blog and love to read the unique comments made by you and other esteemed readers !!!

What I miss in your blog is —- Movies Based on Ragas ——

Bollywood movies are filled with songs which are based on ragas !

Could you please compile all the songs based on different ragas till date with your golden comments ??? You may use the above as a Topic !!!!!

I know, this is a Herculean Task but then I am requesting to Atul !!!
Who can do it with a breeze !!! I Know That !!!

We in the blog do things that are within our competence. If we have to mention the Raag behind the song, then we need a volunteer who is conversant with Raags and who is willing to tell us which Raag is present in which song.

Well, that I can try and give you the list of songs based on different ragas.

Atul ji, please post this Duet from unreleased film “Jaan Bachi To Lakhon Paaye” sung by Mahendra Kapoor & Hemlata. “Tere zulf mein chamke champe ke kaliyan”

Thank you very much atul ji. I found this song in your blog posted on 14.11.2014.

Atul ji, I have been seaching for a sad rain song which I heard in radio ceylon about 45 years back. It was a very popular song broadcasted specially during monsoon. It may be a nonfilm hindi song sung by Hemlata, Usha Mangeshkar or kamal barot. I just remember some lyrics. The song starts with heavy thunderstorm “badraa mat garjo mere angana, pardes jao, mere piya ko sandesha pahucha do”. I request old music lovers to help me in tracing this melodious song.

I have been visiting your excellent blog quite often. Very interesting information and interaction among readers. Congratulations!
I would like to request an old song from the movie “Naya Aadmi” (1956)
“gariibo.n kaa pasiinaa bah rahaa hai,
ye paanii bahate-bahate kah rahaa hai”
Very nicely composed song with powerful lyrics by Rajender Krishna.

I have tried very hard to get this song. I hope you can help. There is a song by Manna Dey with the words, “Ek se din na rahe kisi ke, Samay badalata jayate, Raat ka Teri din bhi hoga, Raat se kyun ghabaraye….”
I heard this song many years ago and now it is lost. Please help me to listen to this song with full lyrics. I don’t know whether it is a non-filmy song or is from an old movie. Thanks.

I am still waiting to hear from Atulji or someone who can help me to find out above song and its details. Would appreciate your help.

ksmehta ji,

The song you mentioned may be this song,which I have heard in the early 60s and I feel the lyrics were almost what you have mentioned,though I am only 75 % sure.

Song- Samay Badalata Jaaye re…Non Film Song
Singer- Manna Dey
Lyricist- Chandra Bhushan Trivedi
MD- Murli Manohar Swaroop

I too tried to get this song,but looks a difficult task. You may try this song.



There is a very melodious song in the film ‘SHIRIN FARHAD’ sung by Lata Mangeshakar, MD-Ghulam Mohammad ( and not Mohinder!)-“Aasamanwale bata de–“. Please include this in the list.


In your blog I would like to see “Kabhi Tanhayiyon mein yun” from the film “Hamaari Yaad Aayegi” sung by Mubarak Begam

pl. add song from film Roshni singer Chitalkar “Dil mere udja Mohobat ka paigam leke….

Narendra ji,

This song was posted on this Blog 4 years ago.
Please go to this link to enjoy this song-


Can you upload ” Jaago re Prabhat aaya”
please. I think it was from Sant Dynaneshwar and sung by the legendary Manna da.

is there a seperate section showing movies released month-wise?
