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

Barkha rani zara jam ke barso

Posted on: October 24, 2008


There are different songs for different times and moods. When it is time for rains, it is time for love to blossom in Bollywood. That way, I have always felt that the Valentine day (and season) in Bollywood is not in the spring season, but in the rainy season.

Here is a romantic rain song, where the boy fervently hopes that the rain pours so heavily that his beloved is unable to go to her home. This lyric has certainly pulled the right strings in the hearts of the listeners all these days, because this song has become immortal thanks to the catch line “mera dilbar ja na paaye jhoomkar barso”.

While listening to the song, I had the mental picture of the girl cooped up in the home of the boy with the rain pouring in torrents outside. When I finally got to watch the video, I found that the duo were not practicing what they were singing. The two were very much frolicking in the rain, getting drenched in the process. If the idea was to get her so drenched that she was unable to go home in her wet clothes, then well, it was a new interpretation that I never thought about all these decades when I just listened to the song.

Was this song effective in getting its message across ? Very much so, I must say, not only for the listeners, but even for the people involved in creating this song. Look at the duo frolicking in rain. They are Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam. And they indeed got married to each other later.

That is not all. Look at the names of the lyricist and Music director. They too got married to each other later.

That way, this song is a perfect desi style valentine day cum wedding bell song.

PS-An interesting tidbit associated with the song is that the song was initially picturised on Jugal Kishore (producer director) and Jayshree T. But after the release of the movie, the song became extremely popular and public demand forced Jugal Kishore to get the song re picturised on Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam.


Song- Barkha rani zara jam ke barso (Sabak) (1973) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics- Saawan Kumar, MD- Usha Khanna

Lyrics

barkhaa raani, zaraa jam ke barso
meraa dilbar jaa naa paaye, jhoomkar barso
barkhaa raani, zaraa jam ke barso
meraa dilbar jaa naa paaye, jhoomkar barso
barkhaa raani …

ye abhi to aaye hain
kahte hain ham jaayen hain
ye abhi to aaye hain
kahte hain ham jaayen hain
tu baras baraso.n baras
ye umr bhar naa jaaye re
barkhaa raani, zaraa jam ke barso
meraa dilbar jaa naa paaye, jhoomkar barso
barkhaa raani …

mast saawan ki ghataa
bijuriyaa chamkaa zaraa
mast saawan kii ghataa
bijuriyaa chamakaa zaraa
yaar mera darke mere
seene se lag jaaye re
barkhaa raani, zaraa jam ke barso
meraa dilbar jaa naa paaye, jhoomkar barso
barkhaa raani, zaraa jam ke barso
meraa dilbar jaa naa paaye, jhoomkar barso
barkhaa raani …

बरखा रानी ज़रा जम के बरसो
मेरा दिलबर जा ना पाए
झूमकर बरसो ओ ओ ओ
बरखा रानी ज़रा जम के बरसो
मेरा दिलबर जा ना पाए
झूमकर बरसो ओ ओ ओ
बरखा रानी
ये अभी तो आये हैं
कहते है हम जाएँ हैं
ये अभी तो आये हैं
कहते है हम जाएँ हैं
तू बरस बरसों बरस
ये उम्र भर ना जाए रे
बरखा रानी ज़रा जम के बरसो
मेरा दिलबर जा ना पाए
झूमकर बरसो ओ ओ ओ
बरखा रानी ई
मस्त सावन की घटा
बिजुरिया चमका ज़रा
मस्त सावन की घटा
बिजुरिया चमका ज़रा
यार मेरा डर के मेरे
सीने से लग जाए रे ए
बरखा रानी ज़रा जम के बरसो
मेरा दिलबर जा ना पाए
झूमकर बरसो ओ ओ ओ
बरखा रानी ई
बरखा रानी ज़रा जम के बरसो
मेरा दिलबर जा ना पाए
झूमकर बरसो ओ ओ ओ
बरखा रानी ई

Oh! I never realised that the lyrics meant that at all! Thanks for the small informative write ups that give us the background for songs!sometimes we just listen without completely grasping,and the info makes it much more enjoyable!Also I didn not know Poonam acted before marriage!

One request Atul…some nice ghazals from hindi movies and that song Seene main jalan ,akhon meain toophan sa kyon hai! please!If you can only!

You will have your farmaish fulfilled soon, Indyana.

Thanks a lot, Atul !
This was one of my farmaishes.
Mukesh’s voice definitely has something in it.
And the picturisation also is very nice and romantic.

The Western world has just one day – Valentine’s day. In India, we have one full month – “saawan ka maheena”. 🙂

Thanks! Again something I’d never come across before and certainly wasn’t aware that Poonam Sinha had acted too.

Another rain song that’s really grown on me because the chemistry of the lead pair is so potent is “Rim jhim rim jhim dekho” from ‘Shehzada’ with Rajesh Khanna and Rakhee. RD was the MD. I hadn’t heard it till I saw the film, and really liked it when I did so this is ek aur farmaish please 🙂 The film has another great Rafi song picturized on Kaka, I don’t think it’s particularly well-known either, “Tere atharoon chun lewa mein”.

Yes indeed suhans. Let me locate this song.

Can u send me the female version of Barkha rani? It goes like this ‘ Barkha bairan zara tham ke barson, pi mere aajaye to chahe jam ke phir barso’. sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Desperately looking for that song. Her Birthday is coming up on the 28th of January.

Pls help me.

I was not even aware that this song had a female version too. It is clear that the Mukesh vesrsion is the one that became popular and is readily available.

The only way one can get the female version is by getting hold of the VCD/DVD of this movie and then uploading the song out of that. I am not sure if VCD/DVD of this movie is readily available. I will try to look for it, but I cannot commit a firm target date.

Thanks for this song, and providing some new informations too. I have seen this video first time.

I am sure that most people who grew up listening to this song may not have seen this song. even I watched this song for the first time while I was posting this song.

this song is very much heart touching. Iwas thinking of to listen the song since last five years from my younger brother (now living separately after his marriage)was singing very nicely on the request of one of his female( married) student. So thank you very much from my inner heart.

Atul,

Very interesting facts. I known the song, ( I am huge fan of Mukesh) and MD. but had now idea of picturisation. Just one
more proof that Mukesh’s voice had that magic.
Thanks for posting

Ramesh

Here this song is incomplete without its third antara..
‘Bheega-2 ye badan…

I was not aware of the female version of this song, but thanks to ‘radio (Vividh Bharati), yesterday got to listen it on a program (‘Madhu-Malti’ I think) here is this lovely female version link ; with lyrics (@ Atul ji – I am sharing the lyrics in Devanagari script on mail, kindly update whenever convenient 🙂

Barkha bairan zaraaa thham ke barso
Pi mere aa jaaye to chaahe jam ke phir barso o o o
Barkha bairan
Zaraa thham ke barso
Pi mere aa jaaye to chaahe jam ke phir barso o o o
Barkha bairan

pi se hai mera milan
Kyun hai ri tujhko jalan
Pi se hai mera milan
Kyun hai ri tujhko jalan
Haaye re paapan zaraa ruk ja
Zaraa thham jaana re
Barkha bairan
Zaraa thham ke barso
pi mere aa jaaye to chaahe jam ke phir barso o o o
Barkha bairan

Pi ko mere aane de
Ang se lag jaane de ae
Pi ko mere aane de
Ang se lag jaane de
Phir tu dushman yoon baras na
Jaane paaye wo na re ae ae
Barkha bairan
Zaraa thham ke barso
Pi mere aa jaaye to chaahe jam ke phir barso o o o
Barkha bairan
