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

Preetam aan milo

Posted on: September 18, 2009


C H Atma was a singer who was a devotee of K L Saigal and sang in K L Saigal style. There were many people who sang in Saigal style in 1940s during K L Saigal’s heydays. But C H Atma continued to sing in Saigal style in 1950s even when playback singing style had changed and Bollywood had moved on from 1940s.

C H Atma had a good fan following in 1950s. O P Nayyar was one of his fans. O P Nayyar in fact composed the music of several non filmy albums of C H Atma.

One of the most well known non filmy song that C H Atma sang was “Preetam aan milo”. There are many people who may think that it was sung by K L Saigal, but it is a song sung by C H Atma.

Later, O P Nayyar used this song in the movie “Mr and Mrs 55” (1955) where this song was sung by Geeta Dutt and it was picturised on Madhubala.

Here are both versions of this song. O P Nayyar’s wife, Saroj Mohini Nayyar is credited as the lyricist of this song.

C H Atma version ( private version)

Geeta Dutt version ( from Mr and Mrs 55)

Song-preetam aan milo (Mr and Mrs 55 )(1955) Singer-C H Atma / Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Saroj Mohini Nayyar, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

C H Atma version

preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo
dukhiya jiya bulaaye
preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo
dukhiya jiya bulaaye
preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo

raat andheri aayi baalmaa
raat andheri aayi baalmaa
man mora ghabraaye hai
door ped par baitha panchhi
yehi rat naa lagaaye hai
aan milo
preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo

bheegi raat mein ped ke neeche
aankh micholi khel rachaaya
bheegi raat mein ped ke neeche
aankh micholi khel rachaaya
preetam yaad karo jab tumne
peed paraayi kabhi sunaayaa
aan milo
preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo

Geeta Dutt version

preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo
dukhiyaa jiyaa bulaaye
aan milo
preetam aan milo

bheegi raat mein ped ke neeche aankh michauli khel rachaayaa
bheegi raat mein ped ke neeche aankh michauli khel rachaayaa
preetam yaad karo jab tumne prem bharaa ik geet sunaayaa
preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo
preetam aan milo

I love this song, both versions! Thanks for posting the C H Atma one.

This was resung by Jagjit and Chitra Singh in another 70s movie (I can’t remember the name ).
It was before they became really famous.

If you could post that to complete the “triology” it would be great!

Ok, my Dad says that he doesn’t know if J Singh ever sung it in a film; I may have heard it live only.

Sapan Chakraborty sung a version based on the C H Atma version, albeit comic, for the film Angoor starring Sanjeev Kumar with Gulzar writing the lyrics and R D Burman the music.

There is a third stanza sung by Chandu Atma on doordarshan.

I would like to have the lyrics

jvsss

It is interesting to note that in 78RPM record, the starting word of the song was printed in Hindi as ‘Priyatam’ while C H Atma ( and others) pronounced the word ‘Preetam’ in the song. Surprisingly, no credit was given on the record as to the Lyricist and the Music Director.
