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

Shaam dhale Jamuna kinaare aaja Raadhe aaja tohe Shyaam pukaare

Posted on: May 25, 2010


In this blog, I post songs that I categorise into different categories. Among them, there is one artificial category of songs (not yet formalised). These are songs that were very popular in its days during my formative years. I enjoyed these songs a lot without having any clues about their details. After that these songs would be forgotten with time. After a passage of three decades or more, I would stumble upon them one again. And this time, I would get to know these songs better. As far as I and several followers of this blog in my age group are concerned, these songs were immortal songs. As least they will remain so in our psyche.

Here is one such song that I stumbled upon again recently. This song “Shaam dhale Jamuna kinaare” was amazingly popular in its days. But no one (read yours truly) was aware about its details except the names of the singers. Now I am better informed, This song is sung by Manna Dey and Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist and Laxmikant Pyarelal composed the music. The song is “Pushpaanjali” (1970) aforgotten movie which was full of some awesome songs.

I am still now aware about how and on whom this song was picturised. The link for this song is an audio link. One of these days I may be able to find out about its picturisation too, sinvce the VCD of this song is lying there somewhere with me. Till I am able to locate it, let us enjoy the audio of this wonderful song from my childhood days.

PS- The video of the song was not available anywhere. Then I dug up my VCDs and found that I had the VCD of this song with me. So here is the video of this song too. Now I see that the song is picturised as a boat song. Several people are travelling by the boat including Naina Sahu, Sanjay Khan etc. Naina lip syncs in Lata’s voice and a Sadhu (who is he ?) accompanied by other Sadhus lip sync in Manna Dey’s voice.

Lyrics

shaam dhale Jamunaa kinaare
kinaare
aajaa Raadhe aajaa tohe Shyaam pukaare
shaam dhale Jamunaa kinaare
kinaare
aajaa Raadhe aajaa tohe Shyaam pukaare
kabhi ruke kabhi chale Raadhaa chori chori
piyaa kahe aa jiyaa kahe nahin gori
shaam dhale Jamunaa kinaare
kinaare
aajaa Raadhe aajaa tohe Shyaam pukaare

Raadhaa sharmaaye
manwaa ghabraaye
paniyaa bharne ko jaaye na jaaye
haiyaa ho
khadi roke Brijbaalaa
Brij mein hai hori
Kaanhaa rang denge mohe haay barjori
log karenge ye ishaare
ishaare
aajaa Raadhe aajaa tujhe Shyaam pukaare

hmm hmm
ho ho ho
koyi kahe Shyaam se naa baansuri bajaaye
ho
chain kisi kaa chitchor na churaaye
dagmag dole jiyaa ki naiyaa
dagmag dole jiyaa ki naiyaa
chale jab purvaiyaa
chhede bansii kanhaiyaa
jaadu bhare nainaa daare nainwa ki dori
soye saaraa jag jaage ek chakori
raat kate gin gin ke taare
taare
aajaa Raadhe aajaa tohe Shyaam pukaare
shaam dhale Jamunaa kinaare
kinaare
aajaa Raadhe aajaa tohe Shyaam pukaare

ho ho ho
panaghat pe sakhiyaan karti hai batiyaan
Mohan se laagi Raadhaa ki ankhiyaan
jo bhi mile yahi poochhe sun o kishori
gaye kahaan nindiyaa re bindiyaa tori
Raam kasam chhedenge saare
saare
aajaa Raadhe aajaa tohe Shyaam pukaare
kabhi ruke kabhi chale Raadhaa chori chori
piyaa kahe aa jiyaa kahe nahin gori
aaja Raadhe aajaa tohe Shyaam pukaare
aaja Raadhe aajaa tohe Shyaam pukaare
aaja Raadhe aajaa tohe Shyaam pukaare
aaja Raadhe aajaa tohe Shyaam pukaare
aajaa Raadhe aajaa tohe Shyaam pukaare

WOW…I am listening to this for the first time in about 4 decades !!! This was very popular when I was a very young kid. I remember this song very well from that time.
Catching up with it after so many years brought tears to my eyes. What a wonderful song this is !!!
Can’t thank you enough for this, Atul.

My feelings are similar to yours.I too rediscovered this song again recently after last hearing this song in early 1970s.

I saw the heading and I could recognize the song immediately. This is a beautiful song, and it is a pity that the movie did not become a hit, or else the song would have achieved greater popularity. It reminds me of the songs that used to come out in the 50s and the 60s, and Manna Dey’s voice adds to the beauty of the song. Thanks for finding this song, Atul!

Wonderful, soulful, always liked the song since childhood, but heard it after 3 decades.
I pity the younger generation who has no access to the yesteryears gems, since none of the channels show the black and white movies or songs.
Dear Atul you are doing a great service to people like me whose medicine and life is such soul churning music and lyrics.

I am a biggg Manna Da fan and this song is in my view one of his best duets… I have been hearing it since 1992.. audio cassette and now on mp3..
