Thandi thandi saawan ki phuhaar

Posted on: January 29, 2011

When one mentions “Jaagte Raho”(1956) the one song that readily comes to mind is the song Zindagi khwaab hai. This movie had other nice songs in it too, such as the song Jaago Mohan pyaare jaago.

Here is another song from this movie. This lovely song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. I am not clear about the identity of the two actors on whom this song is picturised. I guess that they are Anjali Devi and Motilal. I request my knowledgeable readers to help identify them.
PS-The artists are Sumitra and Motilal. I thank Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh for identifying them.

Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Salil Chaudhary.



Thandi thandi saawan ki phuhaar (Jaagte Raho) (1956) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Salil Chaudhary


thandi thandi saawan ki phuhaar
piyaa aaj khidki khuli mat chhodo
aawe jhonke se pagali bayaar,
piyaa aaj baati jali mat chhodo
thandi thandi saawan ki phuhaar

diye ki jyoti
ankhiyon mein laage,
diye ki jyoti
diye ki jyoti,
ankhiyon mein laage,
palkon pe nindiyaa sawaar
piyaa aaj baati jali mat chhodo
thandi thandi saawan ki phuhaar

papeehe ne man ki agni bujhaa li,
papeehe ne man ki
papeehe ne man ki agni bujhaa li,
pyaasaa rahaa meraa pyaar
piyaa aaj baati jali mat chhodo
thandi thandi saawan ki phuhaar
piyaa aaj khidki khuli mat chhodo

Excellent singing by Asha ji.
Thanks Atulji, for introducing again, to this song.I almost forgot this gem of a song.
Salil da`s this musical composition got some shades of Sachin Dev Burman`s music.
