Ek sawaal main karoon ek sawaal tum karo

Posted on: March 3, 2011


This post is written by Raja, a fellow enthusiast of hindi movie songs and a regular contributor of write ups to this blog.

As far as I know, Sasural (1961) was a pretty big hit. Produced by Prasad Productions and directed by LV Prasad, it starred Rajendra Kumar and B Saroja Devi.

I have known many of the songs of this film from my childhood days. While the most famous song of the film is without doubt “teri pyari pyari soorat ko”, it has other fairly popular songs like “kya mil gaya, kya kho gaya”, “ek sawaal main karoon” and two popular Mukesh numbers “apni ulfat pe zamaane ka na pehra hota” and “jaana tumhaare pyar mein”.

For years I’ve been wanting to see this movie but somehow it never happened. And then, a couple of years ago, I got to see Beti Bete (1964). What’s the connection? The lead actress, Saroja Devi.

I fell totally in love with her after seeing that movie. And after that it was only a matter of time. I just HAD to see Sasural and I managed to see it soon after. I liked the film, it had a reasonable storyline but the highlight to me, apart from the lovely songs of course, was still Saroja Devi. She looked absolutely stunning in the movie, even better than she looked in Beti Bete. Ok, so her acting had touches of South Indian OTT in it 🙂 but she still carried it off gracefully and I’ve seen far worse acting.

I read up on Saroja Devi later and found that she has won the Padmi Shri and the Padma Bhushan. Am happy for her – I, for sure, am a fan. She was a well-known South Indian name in the industry when I was a little boy (actually she was before my time) but I’d never got to see a film of hers till I saw Beti Bete. Anyway, better late than never. And now I need to make sure I see other movies of hers too. She has not acted in many Hindi movies but I wouldn’t mind seeing a regional language movie (that I may not even understand) as long as she is in it. Such is the impression she has made on me.

Naturally I want you to be able to see for yourself what Saroja Devi is all about. So here’s a song from Sasural “ek sawaal main karoon”. It is a college quiz competition between Rajendra Kumar and Saroja Devi. They are supposed to ask each other a question but the answer is also required to be in question form. They manage three rounds of this but Saroja Devi stumbles on the fourth one and is unable to answer it. So Rajendra Kumar ends up winning the competition. (That’s something that I am, of course, not happy about. If I’d been the writer, there’s no way my beautiful Saroja Devi would have lost to Rajendra Kumar) 🙂 .

Anyway the song itself is quite creative and a lot of fun. It is written by Shailendra and composed by Shankar Jaikishen.

I hope you enjoy it too. It is lovely to listen to – although if you just lose yourself, staring at Saroja Devi’s face and looking into those eyes, you wouldn’t be the first person to do so. 😉

Song-Ek sawaal main karoon (Sasuraal) (1961) Singer-Rafi, Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

Ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
har sawaal ka sawaal hi jawaab ho
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
har sawaal ka sawaal hi jawaab ho
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo

pyaar ki bela saath sajan ka
phir kyun dil ghabraaye
naihar se ghar jaati dulhan
kyun naina chhalkaye
pyaar ki bela saath sajan ka
phir kyun dil ghabraaye
naihar se ghar jaati dulhan
kyun naina chhalkaye
hai maaloom ki jaana hoga duniya ek saraai
phir kyun jaate waqt musaafir roye aur rulaaye
phir kyun jaate waqt musafir roye aur rulaaye
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
har sawaal ka sawaal hi jawaab ho
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
ga ga ga re
sa re sa sa sa ga
pa pa pa ni dha
dha sa ni re

ga ga ga re
sa re sa sa sa ga
pa pa pa ni dha
dha sa ni re

chaand ke maathey daag hai
phir kyun chaand ko laaj na aaye
uska ghatata badhta chehra
kyun sundar kehlaaye
chaand ke maathey daag hai
phir kyun chaand ko laaj na aaye
uska ghatata badhta chehra
kyun sundar kehlaaye
kaajal se nainon ki shobha kyun duguni ho jaaye
gorey gorey gaal pe kaala til kyun man ko bhaaye
gorey gorey gaal pe kaala til kyun man ko bhaaye
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
har sawaal ka sawaal hi jawaab ho
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo

ujiyaale mein jo parchhain peechhe peechhe aaye
wohi andhera hone par kyun saath chhod chhup jaaye
ujiyaale mein jo parchhain peechhe peechhe aaye
wohi andhera hone par kyun saath chhod chhup jaaye
sukh mein kyun ghere rehtey hain apne aur paraaye
buri ghadi mein kyun har koi dekh ke bhi katraaye
buri ghadi mein kyun har koi dekh ke bhi katraaye
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
har sawaal ka sawaal hi jawaab ho
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
ga ga ga re
sa re sa sa sa ga
pa pa pa ni dha

kiske chhooney se mitti bhi sona ho jaati hai
kiska saaya padey toh daulat mitti ban jaati hai
kiske chhooney se mitti bhi sona ho jaati hai
kiska saaya padey toh daulat mitti ban jaati hai
mehnatkash mitti ko chhoo le to sona ho jaaye
haath lagey kaahil ka
daulat mitti mein mil jaaye
haath lagey kaahil ka
daulat mitti mein mil jaaye
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
har sawaal ka sawaal hi jawaab ho
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo
ek sawaal main karoon
ek sawaal tum karo

Yes she is beautiful, she resembles the lovely Vaijantimala, and the song is also intelligent, interesting, and innocent unlike today’s college songs that only titilate the basal instincts.

B Saroja Devi is a kannaDiga, and acted in many Telugu and Tamil films. she was fairly successful in Telugu films, even with her slight accent. One of her more memorable Telugu films is “peLLi kAnuka” (Wedding Gift) with ANR. I am sure there is a Tamil version of the movie, with a similar title.
