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

Mehlon ka raja mila ke rani beti raaj karegi

Posted on: November 16, 2010


I have listened to this song since my childhood, and it is one of those songs that left their permanent mark on my then impressionable mind.

Zaahidaa is in love with Sanjeev Kumar but family circumstances force her to agree to get married to a much older person with whom she feels no emotional attachment.

She sacrifices her happiness for the sake of family honour and then she sings this song full with poignancy. She is getting married into a rich family and she is going to lead a royal life full of happiness, that is what she tells her father in this song, but her internal sorrow beneath this show of external happiness cannot be concealed from anyone, be it her hapless father or her would be groom (Tarun Bose).

This song is sung superbly by Lata. The song is picturised on Zaahida and the picturisation certainly makes one’s heart go out to her.

The song is written by Indeewar and its music is composed by Roshan.

This movie “Anokhi Raat” (1968) was the last movie of Roshan and he died on this day (16 th november) on 1967, when he was at the zenith of his career. The songs of this movie, including this song went on to become hugely popular and remain so to this day.

On the occasion of Roshan’s death anniversary, here is this memorable song from his last movie, viz. “Anokhi Raat” (1968).


Song-Mehlon ka raja mila ke rani beti raaj karegi (Anokhi Raat) (1968) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

mehlon kaa raajaa milaa
ke raani bet raaj karegi
khushi-khushi kar do vidaa
tumhaari beti raaj karegi
mehlon kaa raajaa milaa
ke raani bet raaj karegi

galiyon-galiyon dhoom machegi
galiyon-galiyon dhoom machegi
kaandhe-kaanndhe doli chalegi
doli mein dolegaa jiyaa
doli mein dolegaa jiyaa
ke raani beti raaj karegi
khushi-khushi kar do vidaa
tumhaari beti raaj karegi

jis ghar jaaye swarg banaa de
jis ghar jaaye swarg banaa de
donon kul ki laaj nibhaa de
yahi baabul ji denge duaa
yahi baabul ji denge duaa
ke raani beti raaj karegi
khushi-khushi kar do vidaa
tumhaari beti raaj karegi

beti to hai dhan hi paraayaa
beti to hai dhan hi paraayaa
paas apne koi kab rakh paayaa
bhaari karnaa naa apnaa jiyaa
bhaari karnaa naa apnaa jiyaa
tumhaari beti raaj karegi
mehlon kaa raajaa milaa
ke raani bet raaj karegi
khushi-khushi kar do vidaa
tumhaari beti raaj karegi
mehlon kaa raajaa milaa

I love, love, love this song. And the film too 🙂

I have not watched the movie, but I am sure I will love this movie. Judging by the songs of the movie (which has given me a fair idea of the story) plus the star cast, this has to be a wonderful movie.

This is a lovely song, and I (and many others) wept when someone sang this song at a friend’s daughter’s wedding recently. Thanks for posting this song, Atul!

This song is indeed posted on your farmaish, it is just that I was waiting for the appropriate occasion (Roshan’s death anniversary) to post this song.

hi all
but i thought that the heroine was a double role in this movie. and that one Zaahida gets married to the villager Sanjeev Kumar. gets raped on her wedding night by some urban types and so commits sucide. so that turns Sanjeev Kumar into a Dacoit to avenge her death. and it is on one such round of dacoity that all these characters assemble in this haveli and thats y the title of the movie ” Anokhi Raat”

Yup that is true, Zaheeda doesn’t play one person, but two women who look alike. Sanjeev the dacoit is somewhat reformed by her resemblance to his beloved dead wife…Atul doesn’t watch these movies ha ha and so is sometimes led astray by his guesses or other wrong synopses online 😉

thank you for seeing this movie for us. i ve seen this movie a long long time ago on TV. in our good old doordarshan days

[…] movie like Oh re taal mile nadi ke jal se , Mile na phool to kaanton se dosti kar li(Anokhi raat), Mehlon ka raaja milaa ke raani beti raaj karegi (Anokhi Raat) and this song for years and all these days, I was tortally unaware about the fact that all these […]

endless love,feelings for parents
