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

Aana meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday

Posted on: April 8, 2009


It is widely believed by people that western music was introduced in bollywood in 1960s by R D Burman and that Hinglish lyrics began to be used in 1980s. One is way off the mark if one believes so.

It all began in 1947 itself, and the person who was largely responsible for it was the pioneer music director C Ramchandra. This song from “Shehnaai(1947) sounds so modern and contemporary and it is such a big favourite with remixers/ cover version creators/ etc that it is difficult to believe that this song was created as long back as 62 years ago when there were few takers of this kind of music. Indeed this song was far far ahead of its time.

This is a comedy song and its lyrics written by Pyarelal Santoshi are quite amusing. The song is sung by C Ramchandra himself ( he was called Chitalkar while singing) and Meena Kapoor ( who later married music director Anil Biswas). This song also had a longer version in which Shamshad Begum also figured. So far I have not been able to locate that version of the song.

Initially only the audio version was posted but now I have located the video too. And this picturisation which I was dying to see is worth the wait. This rare clip shows Dulari (singing in the voice of Meena Kapoor) and Mumtaz Ali (singing in C Ramchandra’s voice). Mumtaz Ali was comedian Mehmood’s father.

The second part where Shamshad Begum sang this song was picturised on Rehana.

PS-Video version had voices of Lalita Deulkar and Amirbai Karnataki, while audio version had voices of Meena Kapoor and Shamshad Begam.

Lyrics

aana meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday
aana meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday
meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday
aana meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday
I love you
bhaag yahaan se tu
oo yaya I love you
bhaag yahaan se tu
tujhe Paris dikhaaun
tujhe London ghumaaun
tujhe brandy pilaaun whisky pilaaun
aur khilaaun khilaaun
murgi ke murgi ke
ande ande
aana meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday

main dharam karam ki naari
tu neech videshi abhichaari
main dharam karam ki naari
tu neech videshi abhichaari
mama hain ganga pujaari
mama hain ganga pujaari
baba Kashi ke Kashi ke pande pande
aana meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday

aao haathon me haath le walk karen ham
aao sweet sweet aapas me talk kare ham
arre hat
sainya mera pahalwaal hai
maare dand hazaar
haan haan maare dand hazaar
sainya mera pahalwaal hai
maare dand hazaar
haan haan maare dand hazaar
bhaag jaayega bedum bandar dega jo lalkaar
bhaag jaayega bedum bandar dega jo lalkaar
maare gin gin ke gin gin ke dande dande
aana meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday

O my saab come come come
tum Romeo Juliet ham
O my saab come come come
tum Romeo Juliet ham
O dear come here dont fear
tatada papapa
ye gaaon ki native ladki hai
ye dil ki beating kya jaane
ye chasing hunting kya jaane
ye love ki meeting kya jaane
right righ right alright
aao dear ham chalen there
aao dear ham chalen there
where
there
gade muhabbat ke muhabbat ke jhande jhande
aana meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday

Another all-time classic.
C Ramchandra really came up with so many of these catchy tunes at that time, it was just one after the other.
I don’t think he got quite the recognition he deserved, there was just so much high-quality music in those days.

Thanks to your blog, hopefully more people will listen/watch these songs and they will remain or re-enter public memory.

Your blog is serving a wonderful purpose for eternity, Atul.

wow.. thats so cool.

I think C Ramchandra was the first to introduce westeren tuned hindi songs. Few years down the road he did again Samadhi “Gore gore O banche chore” and Asha “Ina mina dika”.
And talented singer as Chitalkar and another name Chick Choklate.
Nothing less than any other great music director of the time

Yes, C Ramchandra was one of the earlier pioneers of Bollywood music. His contributions in the field of Bollywood music is immense as I have mentioned in my writeup of him in another blog.

Just heard the song again. I dont know about the male artist but the female artists in the clip are Dulari and Rehana. I really long to see a clip of Rehana from film Ada in 1951. “Preetam mere duniyame ek din to rahe hote, hum prem ke sagar me ek saath bahe hote ” hats off to Lata Mangeshkarji who has rendered this song in a very low octave. Above all Madan Mohan in his very first movie has excelled in music direction. Atul any chance of putting this song on the blog??

This song always makes me feel happy, especially the part where the man talks about visiting London and Paris and Drinking whisky and brandy!

This is an evergreen song, that can be heard sunday ke sunday.

[…] reality, such Hinglish songs have been there from 1940s itself. Who can forget the evergreen song Aana meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday from “Shehnaayi” (1947). This “Shehnaayi” (1947) song in fact seems to […]

My 78RPM record shows Part-1 of the song sung by Chitalkar and Meena Kapoor while Part-2 is sung by Chitalkar and Shamshad Begum.
Unfortunately, I have no way to listen to record songs to check whether recorded version is different from the film version in terms of lyrics.

The video version does not appear to match the voices of Meena Kapoor and Shamshad Begum. Of course it is bit difficult to recognise the voice due to audio getting corrupted to some extent in the video version.

We hear the so many times but for the time saw the video …thanks. wonderful work ………Jyotindra Shah

Atulji,

Here are a couple of specific questions as there is a huge amount of confusion regarding this particular song.

1.In the movie, Ramchandra sings for Mumtaz Ali. Who sings for Dulari and Rehana respectively?

2. In the audio version posted by you, it’s Chitalkar again. Who is the female voice? Meena Kapoor or Amirabai Karnataki?

3. In the movie, how many times does this song appear?

Thanks!

i cannot believe that this is one song i have never seen, otherwise i would have remembered that it is Dulaari in this song. i have only seen her as a character artiste- mother, daai ma etc. and i loved the video
