Priye praneshwari Yadi aap hamen aadesh karen

Posted on: October 25, 2008


Kishore Kumar has sung some wonderful comedy songs in his long career. This blog has featured some of them. There are many great comedy songs of Kishore Kumar that remain to be posted.

Kishore Kumar sang some great songs for Vinod Khanna that became quite memorable. This particular song was not supposed to be a great memorable song. It was purely a light hearted fun song. This song may have become forgotten, but if one gets to listen to this song again, I am sure one will feel the same mirth that this song elicited during its time three decades ago. And if you ask me, I consider this song as one of the most memorable comedy song sung by Kishore Kumar. The picturisation is equally brilliant.

This song has been forgotten, but this is one song that deserves to be revived and brought to the notice of the present day fans of Bollywood movie songs. What wonderful shudd Hindi lyrics ! And funnily enough, that was exactly the kind of Hindi that was ( and still is) taught in hindi classes in India. And believe it or not, I understand every word in this song, even words like bhramar, sanchit etc.

psst, any idea what the word “kuntal” means ?

priye praaneshwari, Hridayeshwari
yadi aap hamen aadesh karen to
prem ka ham shri ganesh karen
yadi aap hamen aadesh karen to
prem ka ham shri ganesh karen
priye praaneshwari

ye chakshu tere chanchal chanchal
ye chakshu tere chanchal chanchal
ye kuntal bhi shyaamal shyaamal
ye adhar dhare jeewan jwaalaa
ye roop chandr sheetal sheetal
o kaamini
o kaamini prem visheshh karen
yadi aap hamen aadesh karen to
prem ka ham shri ganesh karen
yadi aap hamen aadesh karen to
prem ka ham shri ganesh karen

ho sanchit punyon ki aashaa
ho sanchit punyon ki aashaa
sun vyathit hriday ki mridu bhaashaa
sarvasv samarpan kar den ham
karo poorn hamaari abhilaashaa
gaj gaamini
gaj gaamini door klesh karen
yadi aap hamen aadesh karen to
prem ka ham shri ganesh karen
yadi aap hamen aadesh karen to
prem ka ham shri ganesh karen
priye praneshwari

ham bhramar nahin is yauvan ke
ham bhramar nahin is yauvan ke
ham yaachak hain man upavan ke
ham bhaav pushhp karde arpan
saakaar karo sapne man ke
man mohini
man mohini man mein pravesh karen
yadi aap hamen aadesh karen to
prem ka ham shri ganesh karen
yadi aap hame.n aadesh karen to
prem ka ham shri ganesh karen
Priye praneshwari

I love this song! It just came to me now, so I looked it up, and sure enough, you have already posted it. It is such a pleasure to find lyrics in shuddh Hindi, when all the songs these days have more English and very little Hindi in them.

By the way, who is Vinod Khanna’s lady love here? The girl in purple? She looks like a wannabe Hema Malini.

Like

She is Bharati.

Apologies for adding some discordant notes now. Much time has elapsed after the song has been posted and commented upon.

The lyrics were celebrated – and still are- as the pioneer to use chaste Hindi, all the way. I adore Hindi, and that is fine so far. But depicting the chaste-Hindi-speaking-protagonist as a dhoti-clad, choti-wearing, bespectacled, kar-tal wielding, bumbling idiot is a major stereotype. Heck, his dhoti even becomes undone towards the end of the song.

This reminds me of my schooldays jokes on Hindi where we all had titters on quaint translations of Hindi words. Sample these: Shwet vasana dhoomra pan shalaka (= cigarette), Lohit Kooshmand (= Gulab Jamun). I won’t even go into the translations of Lawn Tennis and Rnailway station.

Hindi has been an inclusive language, that is how it grew. Hindi is not sanskrit. The reason I write this longish comment is to tell other readers that Hindi is not wedded to archaic constructions as depicted in the song.

I am a Hindi lover, I grew up in a Hindi speaking family, my father taught Hindi in a college all his working life. I can’t stand a mockery of the language.

I am aware that this is not a literary blog. I have even contributed a (very) modest number of pieces to it. But I somehow could not restrain myself; hence my outburst.

Atul, my apologies! I think I have taken this a bit too seriously!

This song is a light hearted song as we are all aware. Creating comedy by stereotyping is nothing new in Hindi movies or for that matter in Indian life. I pointed out in a post today that we in India (and in Hindi movies) even make fun of mentally sick (calling them “paagal”) instead of sympathising with them.

This song used chaste Hindi words to create comedy. But there have been songs where such words have been used extremely effectively. Who can forget the song ‘jyoti kalash chhalke” for instance.
