Mera dil ab tera O sajna

Posted on: January 20, 2009


In Bollywood movies, leading ladies are required to sing and dance. Some leading ladies have been trained dancers,and they have given us some memorable dances in these movies.

On the other hand there have been other actresses whose strength lay in their acting and certainly not in their dancing. I do not think actresses like Meena Kumari or Rakhi, to name just two, could dance if their lives depended on them. At least that is what I think.

So it comes as a great surprise for me to see Meena Kumari, our renowned tragedy queen, dance a happy dance in this song “mera dil ab tera O saajna”. This movie is “Dil apna aur preet paraayi”. In fact, for long, I thought the dancer looked like Helen.

Just as there were ladies who could not dance, there were such gents too. Names that come to mind include Raj Kumar, Dharmendra etc. As if on cue, Raj Kumar appears in this song, and is seen moving awkwardly in this song, and he is supposedly dancing. 😉

This is a good song and dance, Raj Kumar notwithstanding.

Song-Mera dil ab tera O sajna (Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraayi) (1960) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

meraa dil ab teraa o saajnaa
meraa dil ab teraa o saajnaa
kaisaa jaadu pheraa o saajnaa
kaisaa jaadu pheraa o saajnaa
meraa dil ab teraa o saajnaa
kaisaa jaadu pheraa o saajnaa

nain hamaare tum sang laage
tum sang preet hamaari
man bhaaye tum jaano na jaano
jaane hai duniyaa saari
koyi aur na meraa o saajnaa
meraa dil ab teraa o saajnaa
kaisaa jaadu pheraa o saajnaa

morni ban ke raah takoon main
tum baadal ban jaao
mere pyaase rom rom pe
ras barsaate jaao
teraa dil mein baseraa o saajanaa
meraa dil ab teraa o saajnaa
kaisaa jaadu pheraa o saajnaa

pyaar kaa bandhan janam janam kaa
saans ke sang hi toote
saare hi rang pheeke pad jaaye
pyaar kaa rang na chhoote
toone tan man gheraa o saajnaa
meraa dil ab teraa o saajnaa
kaisaa jaadu pheraa o saajnaa
meraa dil ab teraa o saajnaa
kaisaa jaadu pheraa o saajnaa
