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

Hello hello Gentleman milaate kyun nahin hamse nain

Posted on: October 31, 2009


Some two years back, I had collected a list of songs picturised on Railways and I thought that I had covered almost all the songs that were there on this topic. By now, I have discovered several more Rail songs.

This rare and old song from “Actress” (1948) is one such song. The picturisation of this song shows a few ladies singing in a moving train. They are mocking a gentleman who is dressed in western clothes. This song is from 1948 when India had recently become independent from England. Gandhi, the leader of the freedom struggle had given the call for giving up western ways of dressing and had exhorted the Indians to dress in native dressed using homdespun yard called Khadi. This song talks of the same ideals of Gandhi.

This light hearted song is sung by Shamshad Begam, Lalita Dewoolkar and others. It is picturised on Rehana and Meena and others. I guess that the western attired gentleman is Prem Adeeb, but I can be totally wrong.

The song is written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and music is composed by Shyam Sunder. It is a lovely song and a rare gem. I stumbled upon this song nly just now and I loved listening to it (and watching it).


Song-Hello hello gentleman milaate kyun nahin hamse nain (Actress) (1948) Shamshad Begam, Lalita Dewoolkar, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-Shyam Sundar

Lyrics

hello hello gentleman

Hat to hamne phenk diyaa

bhaag gayi Angrezi topi

khaddar pahno gentleman
phenko English fllallen
phenko phenko phenko phenko phenko
