Chhodo chhodo ji piyaa mera todo na jiyaa

What a gem of a song ! Ghulam Mohammed at his melodious best. I am sure you will find yourself humming this song over and over after you have heard it once. That is what is happening in my mind as I am putting down the lyrics and preparing this write up, the leading lines just keep playing again and again in my mind – ‘chhodo chhodo ji piyaa mera todo na jiyaa’. What a lovely composition this one is.

Hailing from a time in the past more than 58 years ago, from an obscure movie that I had no inkling till yesterday. The film is Ajeeb Ladki from 1952. Produced by Taj Mahal Pictures and directed by Mohammed Ehsaan, this is a relatively unknown romantic comedy whose star cast includes Rehmaan, Naseem Bano, Shashikala, Cuckoo, Jayant, Shyam Kumar, Shakuntala, Munshi Munakka, Agha Miraaz, and Samson. There does not seem to much more information available for this movie; the knowledgeable readers on this blog who may have more info about this movie, are requested to add.

This is a ‘roothna – manaana’ song. The lady love is trying to placate her gentleman lover, over some unspecified matter of heart. She is praying, cajoling, teasing, and praising all together, to him back into the mood. And as predicted by the analysis presented earlier also, in the third antaraa, everything comes back to normal, and the two are happily singing together. The singing voices are those of Talat Mehmood and Lata Mangeshkar. Since only the audio of the song is available, the on screen picturization is just a guess. It may have been filmed on Rehman and Naseem, but I cannot state that with certainty, unless confirmed or corrected by other knowledgeable readers.

The lyrics are from the pen of Shakeel Badayuni, and the wonderful hummable melody comes from Ghulam Mohammed. Click on the link and enjoy is sweet musical offering – which I am sure you will not be able to resist humming over and over again once you have heard it.


Song-Chhodo chhodo ji piyaa mera todo na jiyaa (Ajeeb Ladki)(1952) Singers-Talat Mehmood, Lata, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Lyrics

chhodo chhodo ji piyaa
mera todo na jiyaa
chhodo chhodo ji piyaa
mera todo na jiyaa
hamen tum se garaz
tumhen hum se
ho o o
tumhen hum se
hamen tum se garaz
tumhen hum se
ho o o
tumhen hum se

ho o o o
kabhi roothhe tum
kabhi roothhe ham
ho o o o
pyaar ke mazey hain yehi
pyaar ki qasam
binti karoon paiyyaan padoon maan lo balam
ho o o maan lo balam
jeeyaa bhar bhar aaye mera gam se
chhodo chhodo ji piyaa
mera todo na jiyaa
hamen tum se garaz
tumhen hum se
ho o o
tumhen hum se

ho o o
tumhen jaan gaye ham piyaa
hamen na banaao
hooo
jaao ye adaa’en kisi aur ko dikhaao
dekho sajan dil ki lagan
hum se na chhupaao
ho o o
hum se na chhupaao
meri duniya rangeeli tere dum se
chhodo chhodo ji piyaa
mera todo na jiyaa
hamen tum se garaz
tumhen hum se
ho o o
tumhen hum se

ho o o
tu ne maan li khataa
tab phir main kyun khafaa
maaf kiya main ne tumhen ji o bewafaa
dil mein koi baat nahin
pyaar ke siwaa
hooo pyaar ke siwaa
hamen tum se garaz
tumhen hum se
chhodo chhodo ji piyaa
mera todo na jiyaa
chhodo chhodo ji piyaa
mera todo na jiyaa
hamen tum se garaz
tumhen hum se
ho o o
tumhen hum se
