Jhuk gayi re palak aayi ang mein lachak

Posted on: April 18, 2010


Here is a lovely song from a mythological movie called “Veer Bhimsen”. As the name suggests, this movie was from the epic “Mahabharat”, and considering that it was about Bhim, one can guess that Dara Singh must have played the title role. Yes, that is correct. This movie had Dara Singh, Randhawa, Mumtaz, Mahipal, Anita Guha etc in this movie.

I have no idea what role Mahipal and Anita Guha played in this movie, but this song suggests that they were paired together in romantic roles. The song is picturised on them and this song shows Anita Guha suducing Mahipal, and the end of the song is quite suggestive of her intentions, viz she slides up on the “sez” invitingly and taking up the cue, Mahipal arrives there too, and that is where the song ends.

The song is sung by Lata and she has sung it wonderfully well. Pradeep Kumar’s lyrics, in pure Hindi (unlike the usual language employed in Bollywood movies) is a delight to listen to. It is poets like Pradeep and Bharat Vyas who showed us that pure Hindi lyrics could be extremely useful and appropriate in expressing tender feelings of heart. After all, the vocabulary of Hindi is derived from Sanskrit, that is extremely rich in this respect.

This song is of great historical significance from Bollywood movie music point of view too. It was the last time that Lata sang under the music direction of C Ramchandra. Lata sang 298 songs for C Ramchandra, and many of these songs have become landmark songs in Bollywood history and even in Indian history.

Song-Jhuk gayi re palak aayi ang me lachak (Veer Bhimsen) (1964) Singer-Lata, Lyrics- Pradeep, MD- C Ramchandra

Lyrics

jhuk gayi re palak
aayi ang mein lachak
jhuk gayi re palak
aayi ang mein lachak
jaane kyun jaane kyun
ho gaya hai achaanak
meri chaal mein farak
ho gaya hai achaanak
meri chaal mein farak
jaane kyun jaane kyun

samjhaao to zaraa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
samjhaao to zaraa
kyaa hai baat piyaa
kyun sataaye mujhe
aaj ki raat piyaa
kyun sataaye mujhe
aaj ki raat piyaa
jiya kare dhak dhak
gayi chunri dhalak
jiya kare dhak dhak
gayi chunri dhalak
jaaye kyun jaane kyun

gaye kangna khanak
rahi paayal chhanak
gaye kangna khanak
rahi paayal chhanak
ek bijli si daudi
mere sar se paaon tak
ek bijli si daudi
mere sar se paaon tak
kaise aaun tum tak
mujhe laage hai jhijhak
kaise aaun tum tak
mujhe laage hai jhijhak
jaane kyun jaane kyun

ab kheench lo mujhe e e
aa aa aa aa aa aa aaa
ab kheench lo mujhe
apni oar sajan
ghabraata hai tumhaare binaa
aaj meraa man
ghabraata hai tumhaare binaa
aaj meraa man
tum aao mujh tak
main tumhaari hoon dhadhak(???)
tum aao mujh tak
main tumhaari hoon dhadhak(???)
jaane kyun jaane kyun
jhuk gayi re palak
aayi ang mein lachak
jhuk gayi re palak
aayi ang mein lachak
jaane kyun jaane kyun

Very nice song. I am hearing it for the first time.
Very good song intro from you too.
Anita Guha was quite a fixture in such movies. I saw a lot of mythological movies when I was a young boy and she seemed to be in many of them. Of all of them, the one I remember best is “Sampoorna Ramayana” where she plays Sita. Looked just perfect for such roles.

I’m guessing the reason most songs are in heavy Urdu is because the lyricists –particularly the Punjabi ones– wanted to work in that language. Gulzar comes to mind immediately. The argument that Urdu is more poetic and lends itself to songs is specious.

Indeed, Hindi words of Sanskrit origin are considerably more poetic and sophisticated in my opinion.
