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

O meri laadli pyaari behna

Posted on: August 13, 2011

It is the day of Raakhi festival (Raksha bandhan) today and we saw in one song that a man was lamenting the fact that he did not have a sister of his own. But it is not necessary for a man to have a real sister of his own for the purpose of rakhi. Indian mythology is full of tales of unrelated men being sent rakhi by women and they fougtht to protect the honour of their rakhi sisters. Hindi movies too show girls tie rakhi on the wrists of strangers and they prove to be more loyal that their real brother.

The movie “Aatish” is very much a tale like this. In this story, Om Shivpuri and Nirupa Roy have a song and a wheelchair bound daughter . Their son (Dheeraj Kumar) has no love lost with his parents and sister and he is more interested in grabbing the ancestral property by getting his parents eliminated. Jeetendra, a stranger, protects Om Shivpuri from an attempt on his life. He proves just the kind of son and brother that the family needed.

Here is a moving song from this movie. It is sung by Rafi and Hemlata. Rafi’s voice sounds divine. And Hemlata had a voice that was like a pied piper’s voice as far as I was concerned. I found myself attracted towards several movie halls that had songs sung by Hemlata. songs sung by Hemlata meant that they were written and composed by Ravindra Jain, and it also meant that such movies were mostly Rajshree Productions movies. This movie “Aatish” (1979) is an exception, though. It is not a Rajshre productons movie, but a South Indian production.

I was under the impression that Ravindra Jain did not work with big name singers like Rafi after “Chor Machaaye Shor” (1974). But I see that he worked with Rafi in this movie in 1979.

Here is this lovely song from “Aatish” (1979). The song is is in two parts and the link contains both the parts.

Rafi sings for Jeetendra whereas Hemlata’s voice is used for Rinku (playing the invalid sister) as well as Nirupa Roy. Ravindra jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

Song-O meri laadli pyaari behnaa (Aatish) (1979) Singers-Rafi, Hemlata,Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Part 1
o meri laadli
pyaari behna
raani behna
tu mere hote huye
aansuon mein nahin behna
ho o
maan liyaa maine tera kehna
ye hi kehna
phir kehna

behna o meri laadli
pyaari behna
raani behna

jaane kab ka punyaa uday ho aayaa
jo maine mandir jaisa ye ghar paaya
jis din tere paanv pade iss ghar mein
mandir se ban gaya swarg
ye ghar pal bhar mein

meri qasam
teri qasam
jee ye kahe
ab to yehi rehnaa
yehi kehna
phir kehnaa

behna o meri laadli
pyaari behna
raani behna

mujhko de do saare kaam adhoore
tum sapne dekho
main karoon sapne poore
tu har maan har baap ka sapna hogaa
nahin tere jitna koi apna hoga

meri qasam
teri qasam

main sada maanoonga tera kehna
yehi kehna
phir kehna

main teri laadli
pyaari behna
raani behna

tu mere hote huye
aansuon mein nahin behna
ho maan liyaa maine tera kehna
bin tere nahin rehna

behna o meri laadli
pyaari behna
rani behna

Part 2

aaj na jaane kyaa se kyaa ho jaataa
ye rakshaabandhan ban gayaa jeewan daataa
jisko tarsi ab wo pyaar milaa hai
mujhe raakhi ka asli haqdaar milaa hai

meri qasam
teri qasam
ho der na kar
raakhi abhi pehna
yehi kehna
phir kehna

behna o meri laadli
pyaari behna
raani behna
