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

Meri ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin

Posted on: November 3, 2011


“Caravan” (1944) is a by now obscue and forgotten movie. I have discussed two rare songs from this movie in the past.

Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our inhouse expert on obscure and forgotten movies has this information about this movie-

CARAVAN-1944 was yet another roll out from the stable of Ranjit’s assembly-line production of 1944.

It had 15 songs,sung by the big names of the times, Amirbai, Zohrabai, Arunkumar, Bhola etc. This was the only plus point of this movie.

There is a Gypsie caravan,led by an old Nayak-Sheroo. He decides to hand over the reigns of the caravan in the hands of his son-Shankar, who is slightly literate and very good looking. Naturally all the eligible girls around, surround him to get his attention. He has to win the Chief’s post by doing something brave and full of valour.

The caravan finds a ‘Gori Mem’-Marie(played by an Anglo indian- Sylvie St. Clair), half dead in the way. They revive her and the responsibility of finding her relatives falls on Shankar, since he is somewhat literate, among all. The lovebird-Shanno(Premlata) of the caravan gets jealous of Marie,who gets cosy with Shankar.

The confusion is removed after few reels and in the end Marie goes away and the Hero/Heroine live happily ever after.

Here is another rare song from this movie. This song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki and Bhola Shreshtha. Kidar Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

Only the audio of this song is available, so I am natutrally not in a position to tell how and on whom this song is pcturised. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this matter.

Song-Meri ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin (Caravan)(1944) Singers-Amirbai Karnataki, Bhola Shreshtha, Lyrics-Kidar Sharma, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

meri ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin
meri ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin
kyun ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin
kyun ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin

meri ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin

auron ke saajan phool samajhkar
auron ke saajan phool samajhkar
pyaar se garwaa lagaayen
pyaar se garwaa lagaayen
hamre saajan jaane ??
hamre saajan jaane ??
?? hamen thhukraayen
ankhiyaan laal huyin
kyun laal huyin
meri ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin
meri ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin

aisa roop suhaana tumhra
aisa roop suhaana tumhra
saj dhaj aisi nyaari
saj dhaj aisi nyaari
pooranma ka chanda jaise
pooranma ka chanda jaise
phaagun ki phulwaari

ankhiyaan laal huyin
kyun laal huyin
meri ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin

laaj ki maari keh na sakoon main
laaj ki maari keh na sakoon main
aur jiya na maane
aur jiya na maane
man mein rahke man ke baati
man mein rahke man ke baati
man ki baat na jaane
ankhiyaan laal huyin
kyun laal huyin
meri ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin
meri ro ro ankhiyaan laal huyin

Atul ji,

Please check whether the male singer is Bhola Shreshta or Bulo C Rani. I had read on the internet that for some time, Bulo C Rani used to sing under the psuedo name ‘Bhola’.

To me, the voice sounds like that of Bulo C Rani if I compare his voice in one of his songs in ‘Mulaqaat’ (1947).

Atul ji,
Pankaj Raag in his book ‘ Dhunon ki yatra ‘ has mentioned that Bulo C Rani sang songs as Bhola in his early films like Shankar Parvati-43 and Carvan-44. He has mentioned above song also sung by Bulo C Rani.
