O preetam pyaare chhod chali ghar baar

Posted on: July 7, 2011


In Hindi movies, there used to be a case where a character would decide to leave his/her family/neighbours/friends for ever, not knowing where he/she would go. I call such songs as “chal ud ja re panchhi” song, in honour of the iconic song from “Bhaabhi” (1957) that depicted this scenario.

This kind of songs have been there before the “Bhaabhi” (1957) song as well, for instance in “Seema” (1955) where Nutan, the original tragedy queen deciding to go away from her familiar surroundings ( Kahan jaa raha hai tu ae jaane waale).

Here is a song of this genre from 1947. This song is from a forgotten movie called “Leela” (1947). This song had actors like Surendra, Leela Mishra, Munavvar Sultana, Himalaywala etc in it.

This song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki. Gopal Singh Nepali ( a big name in Hindi peotry) is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

It is a nice song that has been forgotten with time. It deserves to be better known among music lovers.


Song-O preetam pyaare chhod chali ghar baar (Leela) (1947) Singer-Amirbai Karnataki, Lyrics-G S Nepali, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

O preetam pyaare
chhod chali ghar-baar
tujhse door
tujhse door

bhar aaye nainaa
nain-nain kaa pyaar
jab se door
jab se door

kyun aafat sar pe mol le
tu mere vaaste
tu apne mahal mein raaj kar
main apne raaste
kyun aafat sar pe mol le
tu mere vaaste
tu apne mahal mein raaj kar
main apne raaste
tujh ko sukh ho to
mujhko piyaa pardes bhi
manzoor hai manzoor

karti thhi tujhko pyaar main
badnaami le chali
chori-chori kaa khel thaa
jurmaanaa de chali
karti thhi tujhko pyaar main
badnaami le chali
chori-chori kaa khel thaa
jurmaanaa de chali
ik dil thaa meraa
wo bhi thokaren khaa ke
chaknaachoor
chaknaachoor

phaagun mein holi khelnaa
saawan mein jhoolnaa
jab-jab chamkegaa chaand tu
mujhko naa bhoolnaa
phaagun mein holi khelnaa
saawan mein jhoolnaa
jab-jab chamkegaa chaand tu
mujhko naa bhoolnaa
mere toote man mein
abhi tumhaaraa pyaar
hai bharpoor
hai bharpoor

o preetam pyaare
chhod chali ghar-baar
tujhse door
tujhse door

I have been looking for this song for over forty years. Hearing it again is a magical experience. Thanks. I am sure you would be able to locate my earlier farmaish Kitna haseen mera piya hae allah by Mahendra Kapur and Kamal Barot from the film Sunehra Jaal.
