Sakhi ri mera man uljhe tan dole

Posted on: April 3, 2009


“Chitralekha” (1964) was a labour of love for Roshan and he had composed some superb songs in this movie. So it was a heart break for him when the movie did not do well at the box office, almost like what happened with Madan Mohan with “Jahan Ara” in the same year.

I have posted “man re tu kaahe na dheer dhare” from “Chitralekha”, which is widely regarded as one of the finest movie songs of all time.

But what about this Lata song ? Let me admit that I heard this song for the first time only yesterday, but I was simply mesmerised. To my mond, this song is just amazing. If “man re tu kaahe na dheer dhare” is so highly regarded, then this song cannot be regarded any differently.

Sarod plays a very important part in Roshan’s tunes, and it certainly shows in this song. Roshan had called for Kishore Desai (renowned Sarod and Mandolin player) to play Sarod for this song. Kishore Desai was a disciple of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan whereas Roshan was a disciple of Ustad Allaudeen Khan( father of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan).

I have listened to this song only twice so far, and I am already feeling that this song has to be one of timeless classics of Lata as well as Roshan.

Song-Sakhi re mera man uljhe tan dole (Chitralekha) (1964) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

aaa aaa aaa
sakhi ri meraa man uljhe tan dole
sakhi ri meraa man uljhe tan dole
man uljhe tan dole
ab chain pade tab hi jab unse milan ho le
sakhi ri mera man uljhe tan dole
sakhi ri mera man uljhe tan dole

laakh jatan karun dhyaan bate na
ye rasvanti rain kate na
laakh jatan karun dhyaan bate na
ye rasvanti rain kate na
pawan agan si ghole
ab chain pade tab hi jab unse milan ho le
sakhi ri mera man uljhe tan dole
sakhi ri mera man uljhe tan dole

saans bhi loon to aanch si aaye
kanchan kaayaa pighli jaaye
saans bhi loon to aanch si aaye
kanchan kaayaa pighli jaaye
adhron mein trishhnaa bole
ab chain pade tab hi jab unse milan ho le
sakhi ri mera man uljhe tan dole
sakhi ri mera man uljhe tan dole

alken bikhre aanchal dhalke
ang ang se madira chalke
alken bikhre aanchal dhalke
ang ang se madira chalke
yauvan baahen khole
ab chain pade tab hi jab unse milan ho le
sakhi ri mera man uljhe tan dole
sakhi ri mera man uljhe tan dole

Lata was in her prime as a singer those days.

Sahir & Roshan: You can almost always count on superb lyrics and great music.

There is another classic by Lata in this movie: “Sansar se bhage phirte ho, bhagwan ko tum kya paoge”

This is one movie (other than “Mamta” & “Aarti”) where Rohan used Lata in multiple songs and all were quite popular.

Hi,
I am not aware of my father being upset with Mr. Roshan or anyone else.
This is a wrong interpretation. Hope you can set it right.
Thanks / Regards
Ravi Mathur
