Chhedi maut ne shehnaayi

Posted on: May 6, 2011


“Heer” (1956) is a story based on the Punjabi Tragic love story of Heer Ranjha, which has been an important source of inspiration for several Hindi movies.

This movie “Heer” (1956) had Nutan playing the title role of Heer, while Pradeep Kumar played Ranjha.

I have discussed three songs from this movie in the past. Here is another song from this movie.

This song is a highly mournful song where Heer, knowing that they are not destined to get married to each other (As she is being married off to some one else), calls on her beloved in this song. The words are quite mourful, where symbols of death (like kafan,maut etc) are likened to the happier symbols of wedding (viz ghoonghat,shehnaayi etc) signifying that their dreams of getting united with each other will fructify not at their wedding but at their deaths.

This extremely sad song is written by Majrooh Sultanpur. Asha Bhonsle has sung it and music is composed by Anil Biswas. The song is naturally picturised on Nutan.


Song-Chhedi maut ne shehnaayi aajaa aanewaale(Heer) (1956) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Anil Biswas

Lyrics

Chhedi maut ne shehnaayi
aajaa aane waale
chhedi maut ne shehnaayi
aajaa aane waale
teri raah dekhe Heer
kafan ka ghoonghat daale
kafan ka ghoonghat daale
kafan ka ghoonghat daale

sar pe sehra nahin hai kismat ka hamaare
ik pher hai
sar pe sehra nahin hai kismat ka hamaare
ik pher hai
mere gesoo ki mehak
meri choodi ki khanak
thhodi der hai
mere gesoo ki mehak
meri choodi ki khanak
thhodi der hai
tooti saanson ki ladi
pade jeene ke laale
pade jeene ke laale
aajaa aane waale
chhedi maut ne shehnaayi
aajaa aane waale
chhedi maut ne shehnaayi
aajaa aane waale
aajaaaa aanewaale

aajaa karke jatan
koi (?) dulhan mehmaan hai
aajaa karke jatan
koi (?) dulhan mehmaan hai
meri nikle ye jaan
tere qadmon pe
ye armaan hai
meri nikle ye jaan
tere qadmon pe
ye armaan hai
ban jaaye bigdi taqdeer
nazar jo tujhko paa le
nazar jo tujhko paa le
aajaa aane waale
chhedi maut ne shehnaayi
aajaa aane waale
chhedi maut ne shehnaayi
aajaa aane waale
teri raah dekhe Heer
kafan ka ghoonghat daale
kafan ka ghoonghat daale
kafan ka ghoonghat daale
