Le jaa le jaa babu ye meri nishaani

Posted on: October 31, 2011


“Daroga jee” (1949) was a one woman show all the way. This movie, produced by Nargis Arts (Nargis’ home production) was meant to show Nargis’ ability to sing all kinds of songs. So far as many as seven songs picturised on Nargis have been discussed in this blog, in which she was shown singing romantic song, broken heart song, bullying shopkeepers song, etc etc.

Her ability to sell products was not showcased in those songs though, so here is just that genre of song. In this song, Nargis is seen in a market where various small time service providers (vegetable sellers, barber, cobbler, knife sharpeners etc) are peddling their wares. In that market place, Nargis sells her flowers while singing this song. So this is one of the earliest sales pitch songs in Hindi movies.

It is quite a hummable song. Lyrics by Manohar Lal Khanna are quite cute and the voice of Geeta Roy (later Dutt) sounds perfect for the young Nargis. Bulo C Rani’s understated music is quite nice and appropriate for this song.

The picturisation is nice and cute too. The picturisation shows interesting spectacles, like two cycle goers colliding at the market and going for each others throats, only to be separated by others. And then the customer, being served by the barber, checks up his moustache in a mirror, and on finding that half of his moustache has been removed keeping the other half intact, he retaliates by trying to uproot half the moustache of the barber. 🙂

What a nice gem of a song it is !

roothi hui apni raani manaa lo
laayi sajaa kar main phoolon ka mela
champa chameli

laayi sajaa kar main phoolon ka mela
champa chameli

soyi soyi si ye kaliyaan gulaab ki
soyi soyi si ye kaliyaan gulaab ki
nargis ki aankhon mein masti shabaab ki
nargis ki aankhon mein masti shabaab ki
ye motiyaan hai
ye mogra hai
khushboo ka saagar umda huaa hai
ye motiyaan hai
ye mogra hai
khushboo ka saagar umda huaa hai
mausam salona hai
rut hai suhaani
mausam salona hai
rut hai suhaani
le jaa
le jaa le jaa babu ye meri nishaani
le jaa
le jaa le jaa babu ye meri nishaani

aana do daana
paisa do paisa
aana do daana
paisa do paisa
daam ho jaise
maal hai waisa
daam ho jaise
maal hai waisa
dekh lo

haaron ki meri hai itni kahaani
sun lo sun lo
sun lo sun lo
meri jubaani
le jaa
le jaa le jaa babu ye meri nishaani
