O zaraa ruk jaa

Posted on: May 8, 2010


In Bollywood movies, singing is mostly the preserve of lead actors (Hero/ Heroine). Others are required to serve as fillers.

It was in 1950s that Johny Walker changed the rules of the singing game. It was found that songs picturised on Johny Walker, even when he was just a comedian in the movie) would become very popular with the audience. The movie makers, realising this fact, began to ensure one Johny Walker song in their movies, which was typically sung by Rafi. That way, Johny Walker singing a light hearted song in the movie became a staple diet of Bollywood mopvies of 1950s. In later years, Mehmood the same thing would happen in case of Mehmood too.

Johny Walker singing in the voice of Rafi had given us some very memorable song and some that have been forgotten with time.

Here is one such song that is somewhat lesser known. This song is from “Sitaaron Se aage” (1957). Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist and S D Burman composed its music. This can be called a bicycle song where Johny Walker performs a cycle trick too.


Song-O zaraa ruk jaa pyaare ruk jaa (Sitaaron Se Aage) (1958) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri,MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

zaraa ruk jaa
pyaare ruk jaa
aas lagaaye baithe hain raahon mein kab se ham
aas lagaaye baithe hain raahon mein kab se ham
o zaraa ruk jaa
pyaare ruk jaa

buraa hotaa hai raahon mein machalnaa
aji achchhaa hai ruk-ruk chalnaa
buraa hotaa hai raahon mein machalnaa
aji achchhaa hai ruk-ruk chalnaa
sun pyaare itraaye kaahe
o yaaron se katraaye kaahe
aas lagaaye baithe hain raahon mein kab se ham
o zaraa ruk jaa
pyaare ruk jaa

aajaa kab se pukaare tujhe bandaa
tere dam se chale hai meraa dhandhaa
aajaa kab se pukaare tujhe bandaa
tere dam se chale hai meraa dhandhaa
aajaa teri service karen
o phir qismat ki thaili bharen
aas lagaaye baithe hain raahon mein kab se ham
o zaraa ruk jaa
pyaare ruk jaa

in haathon kaa jaado jo dikhaa doon
tujhe ghar tak abhi main pahunchaa doon
in haathon kaa jaado jo dikhaa doon
tujhe ghar tak abhi main pahunchaa doon
bigdi ho to banaa de aa jaa
o rukti ho to chalaa de aajaa
aas lagaaye baiThe hain raahon mein kab se hai
o zara ruk jaa
pyaare ruk jaa
aas lagaaye baithe hain raahon mein kab se ham
aas lagaaye baithe hain raahon mein kab se ham
o zara ruk jaa
pyaare ruk jaa
o zara ruk jaa
o zara ruk jaa

What a beautiful song! There is always a magic when Rafi saab sings for Johny Walker.
