Rang birangi raakhi leke aayi behnaa

Posted on: August 24, 2010


“Anpadh” (1962) is known as a movie that contained a couple of immortal ghazals that earned Madan Mohan the sobriquet of “Ghazal King” from Lata and earned high praise from Naushad who opined that these two ghazals was equal to all the musical creations of Naushad. Coming from Lata and Naushad, that was high praise indeed.

“Anpadh” (1962) had other nice songs in in the movie too. In fact, I have posted as many as five songs from this movie already. I had not posted the sixth song from this movie. I was saving that song for the occasion of Raakhi. Yes, it is a Raakhi song. And what a wonderful Raakhi song too.

The song is “Rang biraangi raakhi leke aayi behnaa”. It is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Mala Sinha, Balraj Sahni and others. This superb song is written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and the music, as already mentioned, is composed by Madan Mohan.

So here is this superb Raakhi song from “Anpadh” (1962).

Lyrics

rang-birangi raakhi leke aayi behnaa
ho raakhi bandhwaa le mere veer
ho raakhi bandhwaa le mere veer
rang-birangi raakhi leke aayi behnaa
ho raakhi bandhwaa le mere veer
bandhwaa le re chandaa
raakhi bandhwaa le mere veer

main naa chaandi naa sone ke haar maangoon
ho ho ho
main naa chaandi naa bhaiyya sone ke haar maangoon
main naa chaandi, naa sone ke haar maangoon
apne bhaiyaa kaa thodaa saa pyaar maangoon
thodaa saa pyaar maangoon
sau naa hazaar mangoon
is raakhi mein pyaar chhupaa ke laayi bahnaa
ho raakhi bandhwaale mere veer
bandhwaa le re chandaa
raakhi bandhwaa le mere veer

neele ambar se taare utaar laaun
ho ho ho
neele ambar se bhaiyya taare utaar laaun
ho neele ambar se taare utaar laaun
yaa main chandaa ki kirnon ke haar laaun
kirnon ke haar laaun
hanske bahaar laaun
pyaar ke badle ban ban ke lahraayi bahnaa
ho raakhi bandhwaa le mere veer
bandhwaa le re chandaa
raakhi bandhwaa le mere veer

kabhi bhaiyyaa ye behnaa na paas hogi
ho ho
kabhi bhaiyyaa ye teri behnaa na paas hogi
kabhi bhaiyaa ye bahnaa na paas hogi
kahin pardes baithi udaas hogi,
behnaa udaas hogi
milne ki aas hogi
jaane kaun bichhad jaayen kab bhaai-behnaa
ho raakhi bandhwaale mere veer
bandhwaa le re chandaa
raakhi bandhwaa le mere veer
rang-birangi raakhi leke aayi behnaa
ho raakhi bandhwaa le mere veer
bandhwaa le re chandaa
raakhi bandhwaa le mere veer

I know this movie from Door-Darshan days. We were teenagers when this movie came on DD. Too young to appreciate “Raja Mehndi Ali Khan” or “Madan Mohan” for:

aap ki nazron ne samjha pyaar
hai issi mein pyaar ki aabroo
jiya le gayo ji mora

I know there are more gems in that movie but for now I remember only above three.

In the movie, Importance of education was the message. Like all kids of that age I took that message seriously, and then favorite song from movie was “Sikander ne Pauras ki thi ladai” 😉
