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

Ye hawaa ye nadi ka kinaaraa

Posted on: February 3, 2011


The lyrics of this song is provided by Atif M, a new visitor of this blog and a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie songs

Prima facie, this duet song has similar initial words as the “Dilli Ka Thug” (1958) song (ye raaten ye mausam nadi ka kinaara ), but the two songs are entirely different songs even though they share the same lyricist, music director and the female singer.

The song under discussion is from “Ghar Sansaar” (1958). The picturisation of this song shows Kumkum asking Rajendra Kumar to accompany her to “nadi ka kinaaraa” (bank of river) on the moonlit night where many lovers would assemble to savour the romantic ambience. After initial reluctance, Rajendra Kumar agrees.

The picturisation shows the two driving to their destination with Kumkum driving the car. Though we take it for granted now, I must say that this picturisation, where a lady is driving a car must have been quite an advanced and un imaginable idea at that time.

The song begins with the couple alighting from the car and going to the river, where they spend considerable time on a boat.

This romantic song, which is a quintessential “Chhaayaageet” song, viz a romantic song best heard late at night, is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Ravi is the music director.


Song-Ye hawaa ye nadi ka kinaaraa (Ghar Sansaar) (1958) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

ye hawaa ye nadi ka kinaara
chaand taaron ka rangeen ishaara
keh raha hai bekhabar
ho sake to pyaar kar
ye samaan milega phir na dobaara
ye hawaa ye nadi ka kinaara
chaand taaron ka rangeen ishaara
keh rahaa hai bekhabar
ho sake to pyaar kar
ye samaan milega phir na dobaara
ye hawa yeh nadi ka kinaara
lara loo
lalalalalalala
lara loo
lalalalalalala
lara loo

ye raat dhalne na paaye
aane na paaye saweraa
tu bhi uthaa lambi palken
zulfon ko maine bikheraa
ye raat dhalne na paaye
aane na paaye saweraa
tu bhi utha lambi palken
zulfon ko maine bikheraa
yoon hi chanda tale
meri naiyaa chale
teri baahon ka leke sahaara
yeh hawa yeh nadi ka kinaara
chaand taaron ka rangeen ishaara
keh raha hai bekhabar
ho sake to pyaar kar
ye samaan milega phir na dobaara
ye hawaa ye nadi ka kinaara

aaja
piyaa pyaari hain raaten
gori
aaja kar len do baaten
aaja
piyaa pyari hain raaten
gori
aaja kar len do baaten

aise milen aaj sainyaan
teri nazar meri aankhen
dhadkan meri tera dil ho
lab hon mere teri baaten
aise milen aaj sainyaan
teri nazar meri aankhen
dhadkan meri tera dil ho
lab hon mere teri baaten
dare kaahe ko dil
sajan aa khul ke mil
kya karega zamaana hamara
dare kaahe ko dil
gori aa khul ke mil
kya karega zamaana hamaara
ye hawaa ye nadi ka kinara
chaand taaron ka rangeen ishaara
keh raha hai bekhabar
ho sake to pyaar kar
ye samaan milega phir na dobaara
ye hawaa ye nadi ka kinaaraa

A staple Chaaya Geet song, as you said Atul. Intoxicatingly sweet melody. Superb composition by Ravi. And the vivid imagery that has been portrayed in the first stanza transports one to a different realm. This is the magic that typifies the golden age of film music.
