Tum arbon ka her pher karne waale raam jee

Posted on: July 18, 2011


I have heard this song quite a few times, but all these days I never knew which movie this song was from.

Now, thanks to the lyrics of this song that were sent to me by nahm, now I am aware that this song is from “Chori Chori” (1956).

In a movie where Manna Dey is the main male playback singer, this song is sung by Rafi. This song is a fun song with funny lyrics where Bhagwan and his wife (who is the lady ?) fantasise of the day when they will win a lottery.

The song is sung by Rafi and Lata. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. Hasrat Jaipuri and Shailendra were the lyricists in this movie and there are confusing informations about the lyricist of this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the lyricist of this song and also on the identity of the lady lip syncing this song.
PS-She is Rajasulochana, as mentioned by several knowledgeable readers.

Lyrics(Provided by nahm)

Tum arbon ka her pher karne waale raam ji
sawaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji
sawaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji
tum arbon ka her pher karne waale raam ji
sawaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji
sawaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji

paise paise ko jawaani meri tarse
paise paise ko jawaani meri tarse
sotey sotey uth jaoon bister se
sotey sotey uth jaoon bister se
kab jaayegi garibee mere ghar se
kab jaayegi garibee mere ghar se

tum arbon ka her pher karne waale raam ji
swaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji
sawaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji

kaisi pyaari hai khabar akhbaaron mein
kaisi pyaari hai khabar akhbaaron mein
Laxmi devi hongi apne ishaaron mein
Laxmi devi hongi apne ishaaron mein
hoga bangla hamara bhi sitaaron mein
hoga bangla hamara bhi sitaaron mein
sitaaron mein
tum arbon ka her pher karne waale raam ji
sawaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji
sawaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji

ya ha aaa aa
aisi kadki mein yeh bojha do janon ka
aisi kadki mein yeh bojha ado janon ka
aadha saadha hua thhode se chanon ka
aadha saadha hua thhode se chanon ka
kabhi aaya na wo din sapnon ka
kabhi aaya na wo din sapnon ka
sapnon ka
tum arbon ka her pher karne waale raam ji
sawaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji
sawaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji
arrey
tum arbon ka her pher karne waale raam ji
sawaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji
sawaa lakh ki lottery bhejo apne bhi naam ji

The name of the lady in the question is must be RAJA SULOCHANA,who is a tamil and kannada actress.

The lady is (Telugu) South Indian actress, Rajasulochana.

The movie Chori-Chori is essentially a South Indian production from the mightty AVM studios. Thus the insertion of Rajasulochana (for a fairly lengthy part), a Bharata Natyam bit, a lttle bit of Madras Scenery. Remember the major part of the movie takes place with Nargis trying to go from Madras to Bangalore to meet with Pran.

Thanks for this information. I saw the name in the credits but I was unsure who Rajasulochana was in the movie.

I like this song! I am just thinking that it is a sign of the times that “sawa lakh ki lottery …” will definitely not be enough these days to get a “bangla sitaaron mein”, more likely a one bedroom flat in the outskirts of the big cities! My first pay check was for Rs. 975.00, and that was considered a princely sum in those days, and I can hear some people laughing out there at this amount! Thanks for this song, which reminds me of those times, Atul!

Atul ji,
The lady in question is indeed RAJASULOCHANA,a Telugu actress married to Telugu’s famous Director C.Sreenivasa Rao(Mr.Rao died on 8-12-2004).
Rajasulochana was a special friend of the boss A.V.Meiyappan and he was trying to push her in Hindi films.It was rumoured that due to this only,this song and dance item was thrust in Chori Chori,even if it did look like a patch,having no connection to the picture story in any manner !
Rajasulochana was a good dancer/actress and acted in some 80 odd Telugu,Kannada and Tamil movies.
She acted/danced also in few Hindi movies like, Aayi phirse Bahar,Alladin ka chirag,Naya aadami,Raja Rani,Sitaronse aagey.
Her most famous movie was “Idduru Mitrulu” (Two Friends),a Telugu hit of 1961,with the great NTRama Rao.
In 1963,she founded a Dancing school in Madras.She now stays in Madipakkam,Chennai-4.

Atul ji,

The lyricists for this song is Shailendra.

The ‘sawa lakh ki lottery’ that is the topic of this song, is actually the prize money for giving information about the runaway daughter of a rich man. In the movie, Nargis, daughter of a rich businessman played by Gope, runs away from her home, because she is not being allowed to marry the person she wants to. Her father puts out an advertisement in the newspapers, offering ‘sawa lakh’ in return for information about his daughter. In her adventures, Nargis has met a part time reporter (Raj Kapoor), and they have passed through the village where Bhagawan and Rajasulochana live. So that is the reason that this couple is so happy, that they have some information to give to the lady’s father.

The movie is based on the original Hollywood romantic comedy, “It Happened One Night”, a fabulous 1934 Frank Capra production starring Clark Gable and Caludette Coblert.
