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

Ye kaun aaj aayaa sawere sawere

Posted on: March 15, 2011

“Nartaki” (1940) is a movie that had Pankaj Mullick, Leela Desai,Najam, Jagdish Sethi etc. Most of these names ring no bells as far as I am concerned.

Here is a song from this movie. It is sung by Pankaj Mullick and the picturisation shows Pankaj Mullick singing this song as Leela Desai arrives. The lyricist is Munshi Aarzoo, who I think is the same person as Aarzoo Lucknowi. I request my knowledgeable readers to throw more light on his identity.

Pankaj Mullick is the music director.



Song-Ye kaun aaj aayaa sawere sawere (Nartaki) (1940) Singer-Pankaj Mullick, Lyrics-Munshi Aarzoo, MD-Pankaj Mullick


ye kaun aaj aayaa sawere-sawere
ye kaun aaj aayaa sawere-sawere
ke dil chaunk utthaa sawere-sawere

kahaa roop ne chaand hai chaudhvin kaa
kahaa roop ne chaand hai chaudhvin kaa
magar chaand kaisaa sawere-sawere

gayaa man kaa dheeraj
badhi bekali bhi
gayaa man kaa dheeraj
badhi bekali bhi
ye mujhko huaa kyaa
ye mujhko huaa kyaa sawere-sawere

aate hi ek tarahdaar ne dil chheen liyaa
dilrubaa ban ke dilaadaar ne dil chheen liyaa
baanki chitwan ke chhipe pyaar ne dil chheen liyaa
de ke dhokhaa kisi aiyaar ne dil chheen liyaa

aankhon mein jaadoo baaton mein sholaa
aankhon mein jaadoo baaton mein sholaa
diyaa kaisaa charkaa sawere-sawere
diyaa kaisaa charkaa sawere-sawere

Munshi Arzoo and Arzoo Lucknowi are the same persons.
Munshi ji started his career as a writer for Grihdaah(1936),but from 1937 to 1946,he wrote songs for about 20 movies.
After Partition,he left for Pakistan and continued song writing till his death in 1962 in a very pitiable condition.He always used to regret leaving India,till the last(like many others in the film industry).


Thanks for this information.


In the last but one stanza ‘baaki’ should be replaced by ‘baanki’ which means ‘terhi’ or ‘tirchhi’.


Thanks for pointing it out.


Dilaadaar should be replaced by Dil Azar means dilko dookhanewala


I agree with Mr. Vasishtha.
