Gore gore o baanke chhore

Posted on: April 8, 2009


C Ramchandra, who brought Western music to Bollywood before anyone else has created some wonderful songs which remain popular with modern remix generation as well. Many of his songs created in 1940s and 1950s have been found worthy of remixing/ cover versioning, etc. But none of such musical cut pasting has ever come anywhere close to the original.

Here is the hugely popular song “gore gore o baanke chhore” from “Samadhi” (1950). This is a “stage song”, where a few college girls give a performance on stage in their college’s annual function. In this performance, Nalini Jaiwant plays the girl and sings in Lata’s voice, whereas someone called Kuldeep Kaur plays a “gora” and sings in the sultry voice of Ameerbai Karnataki. Rajinder Krishan’s lyrics are just fantastic.

So here is this wonderful C Ramchandra composition from “Samadhi” (1950)

Lyrics

gore gore o baanke chhore
kabhi meri gali aaya karo
gori gori o baanki chhori
chaahe roz bulaaya karo
gore gore o baanke chhore
kabhi meri gali aaya karo
gori gori o baanki chhori
chaahe roz bulaaya karo

roz roz mulaaqaat acchi nahin
pyaar me aisi baat acchi nahin
thoda thoda milna thodi si judaai
sada chandni raat acchi nahin
chhodo chhodo jiya na todo
kisi aur ko jalaaya gaya
gori gori o baanki chhori
chaahe roz bulaaya karo
gore gore o baanke chhore
kabhi meri gali aaya karo
gori gori o baanki chhori
chaahe roz bulaaya karo

chhoti si baat par ye ladaayi
pyaar ki duhaayi hai pyaar ki duhaayi
ankhiyon me ankhiyaan daal ke to dekho
chehre pe gussa hai dil me safaai
ghadi ghadi o badi badi
aisi baaten na banaaya karo
gori gori o baanki chhori
chaahe roz bulaaya karo
gore gore o baanke chhore
kabhi meri gali aaya karo
gori gori o baanki chhori
chaahe roz bulaaya karo

Thanks for posting this farmaish too, Atul.
All those who think that old songs are boring and slow – they should listen to this. This is just brilliant in every sense.
Definitely one of the all-time classics. I cannot imagine anybody of any generation who will not dance to this tune and fall in love with this song.

This song was not only loved by Indians in East Africa but also by local Africans in the 50s. We had an african servant named Nyagaa in Kenya, who was crazy about this song. He could be made to do any amount of work in the house provided that this songs is constantly played on the gramophone . This was a craze among africans.
Hats off to C Ramchandra , Lata mangeshkar and lovely Amirbai Karnataki.
