Bataa doon kyaa laanaa

Posted on: December 21, 2010

I was very surprised to see this song being given as a farmaaish because I thought that this song was discussed long back. On checking, I found that I was wrong of course. Perhaps I may have planned to discuss this song but I did not.

Here is this joie de vivre song from “Patthar Ke Sanam” (1967). Listening to this song (and watching it) is bound to cheer people up. The song is sung with gusto by Lata. Waheeda Rehman shines in this song. Manoj Kumar, as usual shirks from making any contribution by means of any dance steps or something similar.

Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. The lilting music bears the unmistakable stamp of Laxmikant Pyarelal on it.



Song-Bataa doon kyaa laanaa (Patthar Ke Sanam)(1967) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal


bataa doon kyaa laanaa
tum laut ke aa jaanaa
ye chhota sa nazraanaa
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge
bataa doon kyaa laanaa
tum laut ke aa jaanaa
ye chhota sa nazraanaa
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge


sajte hain jo tan pe hamaare
sajtke hain jo tan pe hamaare
wo hain piyaa nain tumhaare
hai lat jo maathe pe aayi si
choodi hai meri kalaayi ki
palat ke jab aanaa
ye lat ye nazar laana
ye chhota sa nazraana
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge

aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaaa
chaahat se ye maang bharoongi
chaahat se ye maang bharoongi
bindiya ka main chaah karoongi
maathhe pe laage suhaani si
honthon pe tere nishaani si
balamwa jab aana
bindiya tumhi ban jaana
ye chhota sa nazraanaa
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge

aankhon mein chaand banke ubharnaa
aankhon mein chaand banke ubharnaa
dekho balam der na karna
rahta hai dil mein tumhaaraa dil
darta hai phir bhi hamaara dil
bahut na tarsaanaa
tum laut ke aa jaanaa
ye chhotaa sa nazraana
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge
bataa doon kyaa laanaa
tum laut ke aa jaanaa
ye chhota sa nazraanaa
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge
yaad rakhoge ke bhool jaaoge

I love this song, and it is the only scene I can recollect from this movie! I guess the rest of the movie was eminently forgettable, which is hardly surprising, given that Manoj Kumar was the hero, and he was never one of my favorites. A friend of mine sang this song at a college function, probably a farewell for the seniors, and I always associate this song with her. Wonder where she is now!

Thanks for the song, Atul!


Manoj Kumar had his huge fan following in 1970s for his partiotic movies. I wonder what happebed too all those fans. They must have become disillusioned with time, I suppose.


Manoj kumar`s direction or acting style sometimes irritates me, but his music sense in films directed by him is great.

Further like Raj khosla, Vijay anand, he does have a knack in picturising the songs in a unique way(atleast in films directed by him)

a)ek pyar ka nagma hai,
b)paani re paani,
c)shehnayee baje na baje
d)usne macha diya shor

Roti kapda aur makaan
a)main na bhoolunga
b)aur nahin bas aur nahin
c)haay haay ye majboori
d)panditji mere marne ke baad

Purab aur paschchim:
a)koi jab tumhara hriday tod de
b)Purwa suhaani aayee re(great picturisation)
d)Dulhan chali, ho pehan chali
e)Hai preet jahaan ki reet sada
f)raghupati raghav raaj raam

a)kasme vaade pyar waffa
b)aayee jhoomke basant dekho
c)har khushi ho wahaan tu jahaan bhi rahe
d)gulaabi raat gulaabi
e)mere desh ki dharthi

a)zindagi ki na toote ladi
b)abke baras tujhe dharti ki raani
c)lui shama sa uyi
d)title song
e)channa song
f)mara tumka

Even, lesser known film directed by him Ricky,Clerk, Deshwasi,Kalyug aur ramaayan, jaihind ,boasts of very melodious songs.

Further, film acted by him like sanyasi, dus numbri, Dr.vidya, apne huye paraaye, yaadgar,santhosh, beimaan, poonam ki raat, pehchan,saajan ,do badan, hariyali aur rasta, himalay ki god mein,sawan ki ghata, shaheed,nakli nawab, shaadi,banarasi thug, grihasti,kaanch ki gudiya, reshmi roomal,picnic, honeymoon, fashion,anita, woh kaun thi, apna banaake dekho, ghar basaake dekho, suhaag sindhoor,gumnaam,aadmi, neel kamal,sahara, amanat,maa beta, etc, had atleast 2 or three famous, popular,melodious songs in them.

That`s why eventhough manojkumar irritates me by his acting, I love his films for the sake of melodious songs of his films.

Oh my god, I think I have written too much.




sorry, I have left some of important songs directed by manojkumarji, I want to include those ones:

a)Deewanon se ye mat poocho, deewanon pe kya guzri hai(mukesh hamesha meri aankhein nam kar dete hain, especially this song)

a)Uyi tamasha uyi uyi, le ja pyar zara sa(I am not sure about the startubg lines of this song)

Purab aur paschchim
a)Twinkle twikle little star
b)Om jai jagadish hare

a)Jeevan chalne ka naam, chalte raho subhah-o-shaam(I love the philophical lyrics, It pushes me to live life happily)

Roti kapda aur makaan
a)Baaki kuch bacha to mehangayee maar gayee(qawwali with satire)
