Sooni padi re sitaar Meera ke jeewan ki

Posted on: August 20, 2011


The more I learn about “Kangan” (1939), the more I get impressed. This movie must have been quite a sensation in its time.

This movie was based on a novel called “Rajnigandha” written by Gajendra Kumar Mitra. The movie was produced under the banner of Bombay Talkies. Himanshu Rai was the producer and this movie was directed by Franz Osten, a German, who was into Hindi movies in a big way. This movie had actors like Ashok Kumar, Leela Chitnis, Mubarak, Amiya, Vasant Desai, P F Pithawala, Saroj Borkar etc in it.

This movie had music by two music directors, namely Ramchandra Pal and Saraswati Devi. Lyrics were written by Pt Narottam Vyas and Kavi Pradeep.

It is a good news for music lovers that the print of such an old movie is available in very good condition, and some kind souls have uploaded the songs of this movie on YT.

Here is a lovely song from “Kangan” (1939). It is sung by Leela Chitnis and it is picturised on her as well. Pradeep is the lyricist and music is composed by Saraswati Devi. This is a song that is 72 years old as of now which I heard (and watched) for the first time only just now and the song sounds as fresh as new. What a lovely song and what nice picturisation !

Song-Sooni padi re sitar Meera ke jeewan ki (Kangan) (1939) Singer-Leela Chitnis, Lyrics-Pradeep, MD-Saraswati Devi

Lyrics

sooni padi re sitaar
sooni padi re sitaar
Meeraa ke jeewan ki
sooni padi re sitaar

kitni gahri neend mein
so gayi taaron ki jhankaar
Meeraa ke jeewan ki
sooni padi re sitaar
kitni gahri neend mein
so gayi taaron ki jhankaar
Meeraa ke jeewan ki
sooni padi re sitaar

meri sakhi ka geet adhoora
kaun karegaa re ab pooraa
meri sakhi ka geet adhoora
kaun karegaa re ab pooraa
giridhar-naagar kyaa na sunoge
giridhar-naagar kyaa na sunoge
piyu-piyu ki pukaar
piyu-piyu ki pukaar
Meeraa ke jeewan ki
sooni padi re sitaar
Meeraa ke jeewan ki
sooni padi re sitaar
