Loot liyo mandheer

Posted on: February 23, 2011


A few hours ago, I came across a lovely song from a very old movie. Here is this song, which is sung by Kanan Devi, and I guess that this song is picturised on her as well. Aarzoo Lucknowi is the lyricist and music is composed by R C Boral.

The movie is called “Jawaani Ki Reet” (1939).

Though I have got much of the lyrics right (I hope), there are a few words where I have got stuck. I request my readers with keener ears to point out the errors/missing words as applicable.


Song-Loot liyo mandheer (Jawaani Ki Reet) (1939) Singer-Kanan Devi, Lyrics-Aarzoo Lucknowi, MD-R C Boral

Lyrics

loot liyo mandheer
loot liyo mandheer
kaun rasiyaa more re man bhaayaa
kaun rasiyaa more re man bhaayaa
honthon ne amrit barsaayaa
aankh ne ras tapkaayaa
honthon ne amrit barsaayaa
aankh ne ras tapkaayaa
loot liyo mandheer
loot liyo mandheer

la la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la la la la la
ha ha ha ha
ha ha ha
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
mat palta di
rut paltaa di
aur paltaa di kaayaa
mat palta di
rut paltaa di
aur paltaa di kaayaa
ghar se niklaa aag ka ???
nainan jal barsaayaa
ghar se niklaa aag ka ???
nainan jal barsaayaa
aankh ne ras tapkaayaa
loot liyo mandheer
loot liyo mandheer

prem ka rog hai jag se nyaaraa
wo hai jaan se pyaaraa
prem ka rog hai jag se nyaaraa
wo hai jaan se pyaaraa
dard bhi hai to meethha meethha
dukh mein bhi sukh paayaa
dard bhi hai to meethha meethha
dukh mein bhi sukh paayaa
bhola mukhdaa chaatur(??) chitwan
dekh ke dhokhaa khaayaa
aaa aaa
bhola mukhdaa chaatur(??) chitwan
dekh ke dhokhaa khaayaa
ek ne phanda baandh ke faansaa
ek ne baan chalaayaa aa aa
ek ne phanda baandh ke faansaa
ek ne baan chalaayaa
loot liyo mandheer
loot liyo mandheer

In this song the words man and dheer are two separate words and not one;meaning that the patience of mind is gone (ofcourse because of the lover).

Atul ji

What a wonderful song, what a gem. The music, the lyrics and the rendition by Kanan Devi, all a superb creation. Thanks for bringing out such a beautiful song. I often wonder how would I have ever come to enjoy such masterpieces, were it not for your effort and interest.

Some corrections for lyrics, as I could decipher.

?? ??
rut paltaa di
aur paltaa di kaayaa

should be
mat paltaa di
rut paltaa di
aur paltaa di kaayaa

The word “mat” is used in the context of mind, thinking – my thinking is transformed.

bhola mukhdaa ?? chitwan
dekh ke dhokhaa paayaa

should be
bhola mukhdaa chaturi chitwan
dekh ke dhokhaa khaayaa

bhola mukhda – apparently harmless external appearance
chaturi chitwan – clever and cunning inside
dekh ke dhokhaa paayaa – I am deceived by such pretensions.

Still working on
ghar se niklaa aag ka ???

I could make out that the word ‘aag’ is probably ‘aankh’, given the context of the following line
nainan jal barsaayaa
But let me spend some more time on savoring this song, then I may revert on this missing word. 🙂

It sounds like ‘jaduyee chitwan’. Kindly confirm. ‘Chaturi chitwan’ may be in place, but was not in vogue. I do not feel like challenging the authority of Sudhir, who is doing a fine job. The corrections suggested by him should be incorporated in the body of the song.
