Gaal gulaabi kiske hain

Posted on: November 8, 2010

“Love in Shimla” (1960) was the debut movie of Joy Mukherji and Sadhana. And one must say that the two of them made an impressive debut.

Music of this movie certainly helped. Few people may today remember the movie, but the songs of this movie are remembered even today.

I have discussed three songs from this movie in the past. Here is another song from this movie.

This song is one that can be called a question-answer song. Rafi (singing for Joy Mukherji) asks questions like “whose cheeks are pink,whose arms are long etc etc and pat come the reply from the chorus- “Shakeela, Jameela, Leela, Sheela, Tequila, etc.

I am not much knowledgeable about western music, but I think that this song is influenced by some western tune. I recall listening to a western tune during my younger days which had some nice music and very less lyrics. The only lyrics that it contained was “Tequila”. This song could well be inspired by that song. Or I may be totally wrong in my guess.

As is always the case, the indian adaptation of western tunes always makes for interesting listening. The lyrics by Rajinder Kumar are interesting. Iqbal Qureshi is the music director.

Here is this delightful rock and roll number from “Love in Shimla”(1960).



song-Gaal gulaabi kiske hain (Love in Shimla) (1960) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Iqbal Qureshi


gaal gulaabi kiske hain
nain sharaabi kiske hain
baalon mein kiske raat base
dekh ke jisko subah hanse
kaun kaun kaun kaun kaun
gaal gulaabi kiske hain
nain sharaabi kiske hain

lambi baanhen kiski hain
tez nigaahen kiski hain
choom ke jisko hawaa chale
dekh ke jisko chaand jale
kaun kaun kaun kaun kaun
lambi baanhen kiski hain
tez nigaahen kiski hain

phool baraste baaton se
dil ko looten ghaaton se
jo bijli ko sharmaaye
dekh paseenaa aa jaaye
kaun kaun kaun kaun kaun
phool baraste baaton se
dil ko looten ghaaton se

rang damaktaa kiskaa hai
ang chamaktaa kiskaa hai
jalwaa jaadu kartaa hai
Shimlaa bhi dam bhartaa hai
kaun kaun kaun kaun kaun
rang damaktaa kiskaa hai
rang chamaktaa kiskaa hai
gaal gulaabi nain sharaabi
lambi baanhen tez nigaahe
rag damakataa
ang chamaktaa
bolo bolo bolo bolo
