Piyaa ki gali laage bhali

Posted on: July 24, 2010


Madan Mohan is often associated with serious ghazal songs sung by Lata. But Madan Mohan has composed all kinds of songs including light hearted and non serious songs sung by several singers. In fact, the Madan Mohan song that climbed the highest in Binaca Geetmala annual charts in his lifetime was not a ghazal by Lata but a mela song by Asha Bhonsle. It was the hugely popular Jhumka gira re Bareli ke bazaar me from “Mera Saayaa” (1966).

Here is another Madan Mohan song of a similar genre. It is a stage cum dance competition song where Yogita Bali and Laxmi Chhaaya compete on the stage. This song is from “Parwaanaa” (1971) and it is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Parveen Sultana. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist.

This song is a wonderful song from a movie that unfortunately met the standard fate of a Madan Mohan movie, viz it flopped at the box office. But the songs, like in all Madan Mohan movies, hold their own.

Farmaish for this song was given by Raja.


Song-Piyaa ki gali laage bhali (Parwaanaa) (1971) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Parveen Sultana, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

piyaa ki gali laage bhali
roko na sakhi jiyaa bas mein nahin
kahaan tu chali birhaa jali
dekhe na koyi sakhi jaa na kahin
kahaan tu chali
haan
piyaa ki gali

badariyaa ghir ghir aaye
bijuriyaa shor machaaye
main to jaaungi, main to jaaungi, main to jaaungi
sanwar ke bindiyaa lagaa ke
na jaa tu roop sajaa ke
main to jaaungi, main to jaaungi, main to jaaungi
chhup gaye taare rain dhalak gayi
sooni rahi mori sejiyaa to kyaa hogaa
piyaa ki gali laage bhali
roko na sakhi jiyaa bas mein nahin
kahaan tu chali
haan piyaa ki gali

raat hai kaari barkhaa parat hai
bheege jo nainon kaa kajraa to kyaa hogaa
mast pawan hai chunri udat hai
mahke jo phoolon kaa gajraa to kyaa hogaa
chhodo chhodo chhodo bahiyaan rahaa na jaaye
dekho dekho dekho dekho piyaa bulaaye
kaise na jaaun, kaise na jaaun
kaise na jaaun, kaise na jaaun
der se mori raah takat hai
roothaa jo baankaa sajnaa to kyaa hogaa
piyaa ki gali laage bhali
roko na sakhi jiyaa bas mein nahin
kahaan tu chali
haan
piyaa ki gali

deewaani chup ho jaa re
piyaa ki dhun mat gaa re
main to gaaungi, main to gaaungi, main to gaaungi
jiyaa ko tu samjhaa re
sunegi sab duniyaa re
main to gaaungi, main to gaaungi, main to gaaungi
kaahe tu tToke kaahe roke
rahaa meraa man pyaasaa to kyaa hogaa
piyaa ki gali laage bhali
roko na sakhi jiyaa bas mein nahin
kahaan tu chali birhaa jali
dekhe na koii sakhi jaa na kahin
kahaan tu chali
piyaa ki gali

Thanks a lot for posting this, Atul. Isn’t it just a lovely song? Graceful too – Yogeeta and Laxmi. I was listening to this song the other day (after a long time) and fell in love with it rightaway.

Laxmi Chhaya was very agile and energetic dancer..
Unfortunately she died quite young (around 55 yrs.) in 2004 because of breast cancer.

Thanks for the post, thought i disagree that it is a ‘competitive dance’. It’s more a ‘duet’ than a ‘duel’. IMO the classic dance competition between vaijyantimala and padmini is one of the best. another would be the one between laxmi chhaya and madhumati in the film suhaagraat.

From the picturisation, it does appear to me that they are duelling.

Call it a difference in opinion then 🙂

Btw, could you help me find a song that I have been looking for ages. Some old hindi movie where a dancer is challenged in public by another dancer (both female), probably in some Maharaja’s court. They compete on their dancing skills which also included a pseudo fight with swords and daggers. At the end, the challenger wins the competition.
I don’t know which movie it is from or the two actors and hence it has been difficult to find. Can you recall any such movie?

I don`t know exactly what you are finding, but One courtroom dance competition between Vyjayanthimala & another female dancer from Lekh Tondon directed movie “Amrapali(1966)”, comes close to the explaination you have given, try that movie and find it out.
