Joohi ki kali mere laadli

Posted on: September 29, 2010


“Dil Ek Mandir” (1963) is a movie starring Rajendra Kumar and Meena Kumari. This movie, like most movies of those days, is full of memorable songs.

Here is a children’s song. This appears to be a birthday song, where a small girl is the centre of attraction of all family members who is dressed up for the occasion. The song is “Joohi ki kali meri laadli” which is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and lip synced by Meena Kumari, looking magnificent in a resplendent white sari.

Shailendra is the lyricist and Shankar Jaikishan composed the music.

PS- The picturisation is in black and white so it difficult to say whether the resplendent white sari of Meena Kumari is actually white or some other colour. 😀 I recall that the laal dupatta in the song Hawa me udta jaaye mora laal dupatta malmal kaa(Barsaat) too looked white in the picturisation. So you can never tell about the colours worn by actors in these black and white movies.

Song-Joohi ki kali meri laadli (Dil Ek Mandir) (1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

joohi ki kali meri laadli
naazon ki pali meri laadli
o aas-kiran jug-jug tu jiye
nanhi si pari meri laadli,
o meri laadli
joohi ki kali meri laadli
naazon ki pali meri laadli
o aas-kiran jug-jug tu jiye
nanhi si pari meri laadli,
o meri laadli

dharti pe utar aayaa chandaa
teraa chehraa banaa
champe kaa salonaa guldastaa
tan teraa banaa,
champe kaa salonaa guldastaa
tan teraa banaa,
o meri laadli
komal titli meri laadli
heere ki kani meri laadli,
o aas-kiran jug-jug tu jiye
nanhi si pari meri laadli,
o meri laadli

sharmaaye deewaali taaron ki
tere nainon se
koyal ne churaayi hai pancham
tere bainon se
koyal ne churaayi hai pancham
tere bainon se
o meri laadli
gudiyaa si dhali meri laadli
mohe laage bhali meri laadli
o aas-kiran jug-jug tu jiye
nanhi si pari meri laadli
o meri laadli

har bol teraa sikhlaaye hamen
dukh se ladnaa
muskaan teri kahti hai
sadaa dheeraj dharnaa,
muskaan teri kahti hai
sadaa dheeraj dharnaa,
o meri laadli
Gangaa ki lahar meri laadli
chanchal saagar meri laadli,
o aas-kiran jug-jug tu jiye
nanhi si pari meri laadli,
o meri laadli
joohi ki kali meri laadli
naazon ki pali meri laadli
o aas-kiran jug-jug tu jiye
nanhi si pari meri laadli,
o meri laadli

A memorable song.

I found optimism in most of the songs penned by Shailendra. For example even in this birthday song :

har bol teraa sikhlaaye hamen
dukh se ladnaa
muskaan teri kahti hai
sadaa dheeraj dharnaa,

The actor in the song at 1:15 and again at 2:00 appears to be the famous Tamil films’ comedian and character actor Nagesh though his name does not appear in the credit list of full cast on IMD.
