Dil apnaa aur preet paraayi

Posted on: November 25, 2010


By late 1950s, Meena Kumari was moving over from happy bubbly roles to weepy sentimental roles. “Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraayi” (1960) is one of the first such movies where Meena Kumari was seen in such a role, though her role here is not as melodramatic as it would become in her subsequent movies.

This movie had some memorable songs in it. I have already discussed as many as four songs from this movie.

Here is the title song of this movie. This song is picturised as a boat song. Meena Kumari, standing among a few boats gives expression to her feelings in the form of this song.

This song is sung by Lata. Shailendra is the lyricist and Shankar Jaikishan composed the music of this song.

It is a lovely song to listen to, and this song is a timeless classic.


Song-Dil apna aur preet paraayi (Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraayi) (1960) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

dil apnaa au preet paraayi
kis ne hai ye reet banaayi
aandhi mein ek deep jalaayaa
aur paani mein aag lagaayi
dil apnaa au preet paraayi
kis ne hai ye reet banaayi
dil apnaa

hai dard aisaa ki sahnaa hai mushkil
duniyaa waalon se kahnaa hai mushkil
ghir ke aayaa hai toofaan aisaa
bach ke saahil pe rahnaa hai mushkil
ghir ke aayaa hai toofaan aisaa
bach ke saahil pe rahnaa hai mushkil
dil apnaa au preet paraayi
kis ne hai ye reet banaayi
aandhi mein ek deep jalaayaa
aur paani mein aag lagaayi
dil apnaa

dil ko sambhaalaa na daaman bachaayaa
phaili jab aag tab hosh aayaa
gham ke maare pukaaren kise ham
ham se bichhdaa hamaaraa bhi saayaa
gham ke maare pukaaren kise ham
ham se bichhdaa hamaaraa bhi saayaa
dil apnaa au preet paraayi
kis ne hai ye reet banaayi
aandhi mein ek deep jalaayaa
aur paani mein aag lagaayi
dil apnaa
