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

Zulmi sang aankh ladi

Posted on: August 14, 2010


On popular demand from several of my readers, I am posting the remaing songs of “Madumati” (1958) these days. I have so far already posted six songs from this movie. Six timeless songs should be more than enough for one movie, but there are more such songs in this movie !

Here is the seventh timeless classic from this movie. This song is that fabulous folk dance based song “Zulmi sang aank ladi”. Yes, this is “Zulmi”, not “Zurmi”-as Raja had mentioned in his farmaish for this song.

What can one say about this song. People of several generations have grown up listening to this song and loving it over the past 52 years (Oops, Lalitha- I too should remember not to mention the age of songs while mentioning them) 😀

Lata’s voice is incredibly sweet in this song, and is just perfect for this song. The lyrics of this song are today taken for granted by us, but Shailendra must have used up considerable amount of his creative juices to come up with these lyrics which are so easy on the ears and tongues of everyone. And what an incredibly gifted and creative music director Salil Chaudhary was.

The song is easy on the eyes too, if one watches the picturisation of this song. Watching Vyjyanti Mala dancing in delight is always a sight to feast upon.

This song is indeed a feast for the senses. Here is this wonderful song from “Madhumati” (1958).

Song-Zulmi sang aankh ladi (Madhumati) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics

aahaa aaha aaha aahaa
aahaa aaha aaha aahaa
aahaa aaha aaha aahaa
aahaa aaha aaha aahaa
aahaa aaha aaha aahaa
aahaa aaha aaha aahaa
aahaa aaha aaha aahaa
aahaa aaha aaha aahaa

zulmi sang aankh ladi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re
zulmi sang aankh ladi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re
zulmi sang aankh ladi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re
sakhi main kaa se kahoon,
ri sakhi kaa se kahoon
jaane kaisi ye baat badhi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re
zulmi sang aankh ladi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re

wo chhup chhupke bansri bajaaye,
wo chhup chhupke bansri bajaay re
wo chhup chhupke bansri bajaay,
sunaaye mujhe masti mein doobaa huaa raag re
mohe taaron ki chhaanv mein bulaaye,
mohe taaron ki chhaanv mein bulaaye re
mohe taaron ki chhaanv mein bulaaye
churaaye meri nindiyaa,
main rah jaaun jaag re,
lage din chhotaa, raat badi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re
zulmi sang aankh ladi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re
sakhi main kaa se kahoon,
ri sakhi kaa se kahoon
jaane kaisi ye baat badhi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re
zulmi sang aankh ladi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re

baaton baaton mein rog badhaa jaaye,
baaton baaton mein rog badhaa jaaye re,
baaton baaton mein rog badhaa jaaye,
hamaaraa jiyaa tadpe kisike liye shaam se,
meraa paagalpanaa to koi dekho,
meraa paagalpanaa to koi dekho re
meraa paagalpanaa to koi dekho
pukaaroon main chandaa ko saajan ke naam se,
phiri man pe jaadoo ki chhadi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re
zulmi sang aankh ladi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re
sakhi main kaa se kahoon,
ri sakhi kaa se kahoon
jaane kaisi ye baat badhi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re
zulmi sang aankh ladi,
zulmi sang aankh ladi re

Thanks for posting this absolutely lovely song, Atul.
I just love this song – in fact, all the songs of this movie. This is one of those movies which typifies music of that golden era. To name a few movies which had plenty of songs and most of them evergreen – Madhumati, Andaz, Awaara, Baiju Bawra, Naya Daur, Shri420, Ganga Jamuna, CID, Mughal-e-Azam, Chaudhvin Ka Chand, Guide…there are many more. Songs in these movies are really pleasant to listen to and I think played a huge role in the success of the movies also.

I love the expression “aankh ladi”. I first heard it in the “Rafta rafta” (Dharam-Rekha) song you posted a few months back and thoght how clever. I guess it is a standard expression if it shows up in so many songs.

Uss time tau aankh ladana zurm hi tha. That may explain first word mishap. 🙂

And, Kahani Kismat Ki (“Rafta Rafta”) was late in this eye-fight. 😉

Zurm of Nain ishara/milana/ladana (aka matakaa) was going on for years before “Rafta Rafta”

Pocketmaar (“ladi aankh se aankh mohabbat ho gayi”)
CID (“Ankhon hi Ankhon main”)
Ganga Jamuna (“Nain lad jaiye tau manwa ma”)
Sone ki Chidiya (“saiyyaan jabse ladi hai tose ankhiyaan”

Coming back to song, “just perfect”. Music & lyrics are great & Lata voice is out of this world. Madhumati was all Lata.

Thanks for posting this.
