Jaa jaa re jaa baalamwaa

Posted on: July 18, 2011


I have discussed as many as 8 songs from “Basant Bahaar” (1956) and I thought that I had discussed all the songs from this movie. but wait, there are still more songs in this movie.

Here is yet another timeless classic song from “Basant Bahaar” (1956). This song is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Kumkum. Shailendra is the lyricist and Shankar Jaikishan composed the music.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra who had seen this movie in his childhood and he kept wondering why the dancer Kumkum was fluttering her eye lashes evey now and then while dancing. 🙂 . Yes, this song is picturised as a dance song on Kumkum, with Chandrashekhar and Om Prakash also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics

Jaa jaare jaa
baalamwaa
jaa jaa re jaa
baalamwaa
soutan ke sang raat bitaayee
kaahe karat ab jhooti batiyaan
Ja jaa re jaa
baalamwaa
Ja jaa re jaaa
baalamwaa
soutan ke sang raat bitaayee
kaahe karat ab jhooti batiyaan
Ja jaa re jaa
jaao
baalamwaa

gair ke ghar karee raat jagaayee
gair ke ghar karee raat jagaayee
mose kahein,
tere bina neend na aayee
mose kahein,
tere bina neend na aayee
kaiso harjaayee daiyya
aaa aaa aaa
Ja jaa re jaa
baalamwaa
Ja jaa re jaa
baalamwaa
soutan ke sang raat bitaayee
kaahe karat ab jhooti batiyaan
Ja jaa re jaa
jaao
baalamwaa

kaandhe lagaa laayee bindiya kisiki
kaandhe lagaa laayee bindiya kisiki
janoon main churaayee toone nindiya kisiki
janoon main churaayee toone nindiya kisiki
laaj na aayee tohe
Jaa re jaa,
jaa re jaa
jaa re jaaaa
balaamwaa
Ja jaa re jaa
baalamwaa
soutan ke sang raat bitaayee
kaahe karat ab jhooti batiyaan
Ja jaa re jaa
jaao
baalamwaa

Lovely song. Am surprised it was not posted yet. Enjoyed listening to it just now, after a long time.

Atul ji,
This is a very catchy and melodious song made by S-J very carefully as a part of their efforts to be one up on Baiju Bawara songs(read Naushad),as I had pointed out in an earlier posting on Basant Bahar.
Built in Raag Jhinjhoti and in Teental,Lata has done full justice to it.
S-J had made another song in Raaga Jhinjhoti,sung by Mukesh in 1956 only,but for the film ‘Chhoti Bahen’.Here the Taal was Kaherawa.This too was a masterpiece(Jaoon kahan bataa aye dil…)
-AD
