Dekha karo Bhagwan gareebon ka tamaasha

Posted on: November 15, 2011


“Daasi” (1944) is a movie about which not much is known. What I know about this movie is that an actress called Raagini played the role of the leading lady in this movie.

I have discussed four songs from this movie in the past. Here is another song from this movie. This melancholic song is sung by Zeenat Begam and it is picturised on Raagini (I guess). D N Madhok is the lyricist. Pt Amarnath composed the music.

I am not much satisfied with the lyrics of this song that I have noted down. The video skips at places and as a result a few words are missing. I will need to get hold of its audio to check up the words. In themeanwhile I request our readers with keener ears to point out the errors/ missing words in the lyrics of this song.

Lyrics

Dekha karo Bhagwaan
gareebon ka tamaasha
gareebon ka tamaasha
dekha karo Bhagwaan
gareebon ka tamaasha
gareebon ka tamaasha
din raat koi ashq bahaaye
to tumhe kyaa
dekha karo Bhagwaan
gareebon ka tamasha
gareebon ka tamasha
ho o o o o
le jitna satana hai sataa
bigdi meri hargiz na bana
bigdi meri hargiz na bana
is roti huyi aankhon se
paani ki jagah khoon baha
to tumhe kyaa
dekha karo bhagwaan
gareebon ka tamasha
gareebon ka tamasha

tooti huyi naiyya hai meri
bas ek thhakole ki deri
tooti huyi naiyya hai meri
bas ek thhakole ki deri
toofaan chahoon oar se
toofaan chahoon oar se
aake meri naiyya ko dabo de
to tumhe kyaa
dekha karo Bhagwaan
gareebon ka tamasha
gareebon ka tamasha

duniya teri na bhaai mujhe
de de kisi ki aayi mujhe
duniya teri na bhaai mujhe
de de kisi ki aayi mujhe
itne bade mele mein jo
ho
?? bik jaaye tumhe kyaa
dekha karo bhagwaan
gareebon ka tamasha
gareebon ka tamasha
din raat koi ashq bahaaye to tumhe kyaa
dekha karo bhagwaan
gareebon ka tamasha
gareebon ka tamasha
