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

Aayi hai deewali

Posted on: October 27, 2008


I am surprised to note that there are very few Deewali songs in Bollywood movies unlike say Holi or Raakhi songs. One needs to go back many decades to look for deewali songs in Bollywood movies .

For instance, here is a deewali song dating back to 1950. The movie is Sheeshmahal and the voices are those of Shamshad Begum and Geeta Dutt. What refreshing voices, and how joyously they have sung this song ! And the lyricist is someone called Nazim Panipati. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

I have discovered this song just now. But I already feel that it is an amazing gem that has been forgotten with time but it deserves to be revived and given a new leash of live. What a song !


Song- Aayi hai deewali (Sheeshmahal) (1950) Singers- Shamshad Begum, Geeta Dutt, Lyrics- Nazim Panipati, MD- Vasant Desai

Lyrics

aayi re aayi re aayi re
chhaayi re chhaayi re chhaayi re
aayi hai deewaali
aayi hai deewaali
sakhi aayi sakhi aayi re
aayi hai deewaali
aayi hai deewaali
sakhi aayi sakhi aayi re
aayi hai deewaali

aaj sakhi ri ujiyaaron ne
ghar-ghar li angdaayi re
aaj sakhi ri ujiyaaron ne
ghar-ghar li angdaayi re
aayi hai deewaali
aayi hai deewaali
sakhi aayi sakhi aayi re
aayi hai deewaali

deep jale hain gali-gali mein
deep jale hain gali-gali mein
raaten rang-rangeeli
o o o
deep jale hain gali-gali mein
raaten rang-rangeeli
o raaten rang-rangeeli
mausam aayaa pyaaraa-pyaaraa
rut aayi chamkeeli re
aayi hai deewaali
la la laa
aa haa haa haa haa
o aayi hai deewaali

o
ujiyaalon ko dekh-dekh ke
ujiyaalon ko dekh-dekh ke
door huye andhiyaare
o door huye andhiyaare
naach-naach tu
naach-naach tu
aaj sakhi ri
naach-naach tu
aaj sakhi ri
naach rahe hain saare re
aayi hai deewaali
aayi hai deewaali
sakhi aayi sakhi aayi re
aayi hai deewaali
aayi hai deewaali
sakhi aayi sakhi aayi re
aayi hai deewaali

What a fantastic song this is !!!
Short song but with so much life and verve in it.
Thoroughly enjoyed it.

I have also never heard this song before. Learnt a new song today – and a fantastic one at that.

Thanks a lot, Atul.

It is a humbling experience to know that there are many old gems that lie unexplored in Bollywood. But at the same time, stumbling upon them is such a pleasant experience.
