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

Gayaa andheraa huaa ujaaraa

Posted on: November 24, 2010


I thought I had already discusssed this song from “Subah Ka Taara” (1954). So I was surprised to get a farmaish for this song. On checking, I realised that I had not posted this song, or for that matter any song from this movie.

I clearly recall discussing this song in the past. So now I realise that I had discussed this song in my other blog while discussing Binaca geetmala, C Ramchandra etc.

Here is this wonderful song from “Subah Ka taara” (1954). This is a duet sung by Talat Mehmood and Lata. It is picturised on Pradeep Kumar and Jashree as a train song. What a joyous song it is. This song can be described as the title song as well as theme song of this movie as well.

Noor Lucknowi is the lyricist and C Ramchandra is the music director. What a timeless classic this song is ! Listening to this song certainly makes one’s day.

Lyrics

gayaa andheraa huaa ujaaraa
gayaa andheraa huaa ujaaraa,
chamkaa chamkaa subah kaa taaraa
gayaa andheraa huaa ujaaraa,
chamkaa chamkaa subah kaa taaraa
toote dil kaa bandhaa sahaaraa,
chamkaa chamkaa subah kaa taaraa

saans khushi ki tan mein aayi
armaanon ne li angdaayi
jaag uthin ummeeden saari
jaag uthi taqdeer hamaari
kahin kisi ne door pukaaraa
chamkaa chamkaa subah kaa taaraa
gayaa andheraa huaa ujaaraa,
chamkaa chamkaa subah kaa taaraa

murjhaayi kali kyaa phir se khilegi
murjhaayi kali kyaa phir se khilegi

khoyi huyi kyaa raahat milegi
kahin ye taaraa toot na jaaye
subah kaa saathi chhoot na jaaye
aankhon mein rah jaaye nazaaraa
chamkaa chamkaa subah kaa taaraa
gayaa andheraa huaa ujaaraa,
chamkaa chamkaa subah kaa taaraa

gayi udaasi raunak chhaayi
raushni ab jeewan mein aayi

hansi khushi kaa chhedo taraanaa
naach uthe man jhoome zamaanaa
samaa suhaanaa pyaaraa pyaaraa
chamkaa chamkaa subah kaa taaraa
gayaa andheraa huaa ujaaraa,
chamkaa chamkaa subah kaa taaraa
gayaa andheraa huaa ujaaraa,
chamkaa chamkaa subah kaa taaraa

I often hum the refrain, and wonder how closely it resembles the US ditty, “This land is my land, this land is your land, from california, to the New York island”

Hi Atul,

The female actress on whom this song is picturised is “JAYASHREE”,
