Yaad karoon tori batiyaan

Posted on: September 22, 2010


If one listens to female songs composed by O P Nayyar, they are mostly sung by Geeta Dutt and Asha Bhonsle, with some songs sung by Shamshad Begam too.

All leading ladies in O P Nayyar movies would lip sync in Geeta Dutt or Asha Bhonsle’s voice.

To the best of my knowledge, there is just one exception where a leading lady did not lip sync in the voices of Geeta Dutt/ Asha Bhonsle in movies with O P Nayyar’s music.

“Mr Lambu” (1955) is one movie where O P Nayyar was the music director and Suraiyya was the lead actress.
O P Nayyar could afford to use other singer’s voice for Kishore Kumar (who despite his tantrums was not a big enough star) but Suraiyya was indeed a big star and she got her way in matters of singing her songs. And in any case she had such a delightful voice that music directors would love to use her voice.

So, I guess that Suraiyya is the only lead actress in an O P Nayyar movie who did not lip sync in Geeta Dutt or Asha Bhonsle’s voices. 😀

Here is a lovely song from “Mr Lambu” (1956) which is sung by Suraiyya. It is written by Jaan Nissar Akhtar.

After listening to this song, I am indeed on the look out for other songs sung by Suraiyya for O P Nayyar. 😀


Song-Yaad karoon tori batiyaan (Mr Lambu) (1956) Singer-Suraiyya, Lyrics-Jaan Nissar Akhtar, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

yaad karoon tori batiyaan
yaad karoon tori batiyaan
yaad karoon tori batiyaan
yaad karoon tori batiyaan
ro-ro ganwaa lin maine ankhiyaan
piyaa ji din-ratiyaan
yaad karoon tori batiyaan

kab kaa badlaa liyaa toone zaalmaa
kab kaa badlaa liyaa toone zaalmaa
haari main rastaa teraa dekh-dekh baalmaa
haari main rastaa teraa dekh-dekh baalmaa
dukhne laage nain re
yaad karoon tori batiyaan
hoy
ro-ro ganwaa lin maine ankhiyaan
piyaa ji din-ratiyaan
yaad karoon tori batiyaan

kaahe chandaa karejwaa jalaaye re
kaahe chandaa karejwaa jalaaye re
honthon pe naam teraa baar-baar aaye re
honthon pe naam teraa baar-baar aaye re
tadpat beete rain re
yaad karoon tori batiyaan
hoy
ro-ro ganwaa lin maine ankhiyaan
piyaa ji din-ratiyaan
yaad karoon tori batiyaan

more tan-man andheraa saa chhaa gayaa
more tan-man andheraa saa chhaa gayaa
sainyaa main khoy gayi
haay teraa kyaa gayaa
sainyaa main khoy gayi
haay teraa kyaa gayaa
kaise aaye chain re
yaad karoon tori batiyaan
hoy
ro-ro ganwaa lin maine ankhiyaan
piyaa ji din-ratiyaan
yaad karoon tori batiyaan

Wonderful lilt in her singing. Enchanting. I am a relatively new fan of Suraiyya’s; just did not get early opportunity to listen to them.
