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

Aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon

Posted on: April 24, 2009


“Main Sundar Hoon”(1971) is not a movie that too many people may remember now. But this movie had some amazingly popular songs which were just the songs to appeal to youngsters.

Here is one of those songs. “Aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon” sung by Lata and picturised on Leena Chandawarkar was quite a rage. I on my part was not aware ( till recently) which movie this song was from, and obviously I was not aware about other details too.

Now I know that this song was picturised on Leena Chandawarkar and her parrot and she sings this song to celebrate her coming of age. Apparently she turns 16 ( which in Bollywood lingo meant a girl had grown up.)

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist of this “growing up” song. Shankar Jaikishan composed this song.

The parrot’s voice is also briefly heard in this song. Considering that anyone whose voice is heard in a song is credited as a singer, Mitthu mian too is a singer of this song in my book. Too bad the parrot was not credited as a co singer of Lata in this song. 😉


Song-Aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon (Main Sundar Hoon) (1971) Singer-Lata, Lyrics- Anand Bakshi , MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon
gul se gulistaan ho gayi hoon
ye din ye saal ye maheenaa o mitthu miyaan
bhulegaa mujh ko kabhi na
ye din ye saal ye maheenaa o mitthu miyaan
bhulegaa mujh ko kabhi na
aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon
gul se gulistaan ho gayi hoon
ye din ye saal ye maheenaa o mitthu miyaan
bhulegaa mujh ko kabhi na
ye din ye saal ye maheenaa o mitthu miyaan
bhulegaa mujh ko kabhi na

dagmagaa rahe hain paanv aise
chal rahi hoon main hawaa pe jaise
dagmagaa rahe hain paanv aise
chal rahi hoon main hawaa pe jaise
zulf ye bikhar gayi hai kaise
main to pareshaan ho gayi hoon
o mitthu miyaan
aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon
gul se gulistaan ho gayi hoon
ye din ye saal ye maheenaa o mitthu miyaan
bhulegaa mujh ko kabhi na
ye din ye saal ye maheenaa o mitthu miyaan
bhulegaa mujh ko kabhi na

main to ek qasam thi kaise tooti
jis ne chain lootaa neend looti
main to ek qasam thi kaise tooti
jis ne chain lootaa neend looti
jis ki baat baat pe main roothi
us pe meharbaan ho gayi hoon
o mitthu miyaan
aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon
gul se gulistaan ho gayi hoon
ye din ye saal ye maheenaa o mitthu miyaan
bhulegaa mujh ko kabhi na
ye din ye saal ye maheenaa o mitthu miyaan
bhulegaa mujh ko kabhi na

OMG!!!!!!! I have been meaning to request this from you—it’s like you’ve read my mind!

I love all the songs from this film, and this might be my favorite (although Naach Meri Jaan is pretty awesome too)…

I’ve been singing the first line from this for weeks now, and hopefully now I can learn the other lyrics too! 🙂 Thanks Atul!!!!!

Indeed, this movie had very popular songs. This song was one, “naach meri jaan” was another. “Do mastaane” , “Mujhko thand lag rahi hai” (can never forget Biswajeet in yellow pants :-). So typically, South Indian taste of that time. 🙂

Maybe you can post the other songs of this movie also, Atul, since Greta seems to like them very much.
