Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Pukaarta chala hoon main

Posted on: September 13, 2008


The tune is typically O P Nayyar, and the storyline is tailormade for Shammi Kapoor. But Shammi Kapoor was not available to act in all the movies. Movie makers those days had Shammi Kapoor clones to choose from. One was the tall and dashing Joy Mukherjee, and the other was the pint sized Vishwajeet.

This movie has Vishwajeet, poor man’s Shammi Kapoor, driving on a convertible and singing for the attentions of a bicycle riding Asha ji ( our beloved Asha Parekh).

We have seen such scenes in a few Shammi Kapoor movies as well, but this song stands out and lingers in memory thanks to the voice of Rafi, music of O P Nayyar and lyrics of Majrooh. O P Nayyar, who ruled the Bollywood music scene for many years was gradually on his way out, and this was one of his last movies where his music continued to appeal to the audience. Within a few years, he found himself upstaged by the new generation of music directors.

same was the fate of Vishwajeet too as a hero. But as far as this movie and this song was concerned, this song was a very nice one to listen to. But the quality of songs during that era was such that this song failed to figure in the Binaca geetmala finals.


Song- Pukarta chala hoon main (Mere Sanam) (1965) Singer- Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, Music- O P Nayyar

Lyrics

pukaartaa chalaa hoon main
gali gali bahaar ki
bas ek chhaanv zulf ki
bas ik nigaah pyaar ki
pukaartaa chalaa hoon main
gali gali bahaar ki
bas ek chhaanv zulf ki
bas ik nigaah pyaar ki
pukaartaa chalaa hoon main

ye dillagi ye shokhiyaan salaam ki
yahi to baat ho rahii hai kaam ki
koi to mud ke dekh lega is taraf
koi nazar to hogi mere naam ki
pukaartaa chalaa hoon main
gali gali bahaar ki
bas ek chhaanv zulf ki
bas ik nigaah pyaar ki
pukaartaa chalaa hoon main

suni meri sadaa to kis yaqeen se
ghataa utar ke aa gayi zameen pe
rahi yahi lagan to ai dil-e-javaan
asar bhi ho rahega ik haseen pe
pukaartaa chalaa hoon main
gali gali bahaar ki
bas ek chhaanv zulf ki
bas ik nigaah pyaar ki
pukaartaa chalaa hoon main

Was listening to this Song and typed the lyrics in Hindi too … Nothing beats the rendering of song in its original language 🙂

पुकारता चला हूँ मैं, गली गली बहार की |
बस एक छाँव जुल्फ़ की बस एक निगाह प्यार की || २||
पुकारता चला हूँ मैं |

ये दिल्लगी शोखिआं सलाम की, यही तो बात हो रही है काम की |
कोई तो मुड़ के देख लेगा इस तरफ कोई तो नज़र होगी मेरे नाम की |

पुकारता चला हूँ मैं, गली गली बहार की |
बस एक छाँव जुल्फ़ की बस एक निगाह प्यार की |
पुकारता चला हूँ मैं |

सुनी मेरी सदा तो किस यकीन से घटा उतर के आ गयी ज़मीन पे |
रही यही लगन तो ऐ दिल-ऐ-जवां असर भी हो रहेगा एक हसीं पे|

पुकारता चला हूँ मैं, गली गली बहार की |
बस एक छाँव जुल्फ़ की बस एक निगाह प्यार की |
पुकारता चला हूँ मैं |

Hmm … I use Gmail.
Open the “Compose Mail” link then under the subject box you will have the आ written. Click on it and choose the Hindi.

Now you are ready to type in Hindi using your Keyboard. write the word and just hit space … it would be instantly transliterated into Hindi.

You can cut paste the Text anywhere … on Twitter, on Facebook in Yahoo Chat, as status messages.

Enjoy !

Use Free Editor in http://www.quillpad.in to enter text in English script but get it transliterated to Hindi or a number of Indian languages. You can intersperse English words in between too. Here is an example:

अँग्रेज़ी में कहते हैं की I love you.
गुजराती में कहते તને પ્રેમ કરું ચ્છૂં
बंगाली में कहते हैं আমি তোমাকে ভ্ালো
