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

Jaa ri jaa jaa nindiyaa jaa

Posted on: May 22, 2011


“Jhaanjhar” (1953) is a movie which is lost to movie watchers because all its prints were damaged in a fire. Now all that is left of the movie is its music. And what wonderful music this movie had. The songs of this movie were great craze among music lovers those days.

I have discussed two lovely songs from this movie. Here is another wonderful song from the movie.

Prima facie, it looks like a solo song sung by Lata. But if one pays close attention, one can notice that there are not ne but two singers singing this song. and it is so difficult to tell them apart.Such perfect synchronised singing may not have been witnessed too many time in Hindi movie music.

Lata is of course one of the voices. The other voice that matches and blends with Lata’s voice so nicely is that of Madhubala Jhaweri (not to be confused with Madhubala, the actress).

Raja Mehdi ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

This song is a rare and lovely treat to the ears.


Song-Jaa ri jaa jaa nindiyaa jaa (Jhaanjhar) (1953) Singers-Lata, Madhubala Jhaweri, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

jaa ri jaa,
jaa nindiyaa jaa,
jaa nindiyaa jaa
na aa ankhiyon mein aaj na aa
na aa ankhiyon mein, aaj na aa
jaa ri jaa,
jaa nindiyaa jaa,
jaa nindiyaa jaa
na aa ankhiyon mein, aaj na aa
na aa ankhiyon mein, aaj na aa

jag ki ankhiyaan dekhen sapne
aaj na soyen nainaa apne
kaun sooratiyaa, kaun mooratiyaa
kaun sooratiyaa, kaun mooratiyaa
jaanegi man bhaa
na aa ankhiyon mein, aaj na aa
na aa ankhiyon mein, aaj na aa
jaa ri jaa,
jaa nindiyaa jaa,
jaa nindiyaa jaa
na aa ankhiyon mein, aaj na aa
na aa ankhiyon mein, aaj na aa

aaj na doobo chaand sitaaron
chamke jaao jag ke pyaaron
aaj na doobo chaand sitaaron
chamke jaao jag ke pyaaron
jaa ri chandaniyaa, bhor se kah de
jaa ri chandaniyaa, bhor se kah de
sautan dheere aa
kah de
sautan dheere aa
na aa ankhiyon mein, aaj na aa
na aa ankhiyon mein, aaj na aa
jaa ri jaa,
jaa nindiyaa jaa,
jaa nindiyaa jaa
na aa ankhiyon mein, aaj na aa
na aa ankhiyon mein, aaj na aa
jaa ri jaa

Atul ji,
The film Jhanjar,when released,gave lot of expectations to the people because of the strong cast (Motilal,Usha Kiran,Kamini Kaushal,K.N.Singh,Omprakash,Sajjan etc).However,due to poor and overused storyline,even the locales of far eastern India could not save it.The melodious music was the only saving grace.(One of the more popular songs-Mohe laage sara jag fika fika re balam is yet to be discussed by you).
The story was of two brothers Omprakash(Tej),Sajjan(Ruldu) and their daughters Kamini Kaushal(Rupa) and Usha Kiran(Seeti).Paras (Motilal) is saved by Seeti from committing suicide,but he loves Rupa.When Rupa is kidnapped by Yama(K.N.Singh),Seeti rescues Rupa and dies along with Yama,paving way for smooth going for the lovers.
