Aaj to meri hansi udaayi

Posted on: November 20, 2011

“Gomti Ke Kinaare” (1972), despite being a recent movie by the standards of this blog is a forgotten movie. this movie was produced and directed by Saawan Kumar Tak, who would later on specialise in making movies on the themes of Saajan and Sautan.

This movie had actors like Meena Kumari, Mumtaz, Jalal Agha, Helen, Sameer, Mukri, Agha, Paintal, Asit Sen, shyma, Chandrima Bhaduri, Tuntun, Daisy Irani, Manorama, Rehman, I. S. Johar etc in it. This movie was released in november 1972, viz six months after the release of “Paakeezah”(1972). Thus it is “Gomti Ke Kinaare” (1972) which is the last released movie of Meena Kumari and not “Paakeezah” (1972) as popularly believed. This movie, unlike “Paakeezah” (1972), flopped at the box office.

I have discussed one song from this movie in the past. Here is another song from this movie. It is a mujra song, which is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Meena Kumari.

Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman. this must be one of the rare mujra songs composed by R D Burman.

It is so heartening to find that this blog is getting several contributors these days. Mrs Bhatt, a new contributor, has sent the lyrics of this song. I welcome her aboard the bandwagon of contributors. With so many likeminded regular contributors joining in, I am sure that our musical journey will gain momentum and our musical journey will become even more enjoyable and fruitful.



Song-Aaj to meri hansi udaai (Gomti Ke Kinaare) (1972) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics(Provided by Khyati Bhatt)

aaj to meri hansi udaai,
jaise bhi chaaha pukaara
aaj to meri hansi udaai,
jaise bhi chaaha pukaara
kal jo mujhe in galiyon me laya
woh bhi thha haath tumhara
aaj to meri hansi udaai,
jaise bhi chaaha pukaara

lute yahaan chaman andheron mein
bike yahaan badan andheron mein
lute yahaan chaman andheron mein
bike yahaan badan andheron mein
bhooli bhatki in basti mein ho o o
roop ki chaandi laaj ke sone ka vyopar hai saara
kal jo mujhe in galiyon mein laya
woh bhi thha haath tumhara
aaj to meri hansi udaai
jaise bhi chaaha pukaara

socha kabhi main hoon ek insaan bhi
main bhi kabhi bahen bhi hoon maa bhi
socha kabhi main hoon ek insaan bhi
main bhi kabhi bahen bhi hoon maa bhi
tum to pyaasi pyaasi aankhe leke ho o o
karne aaye mere labon par mere lahoon ka nazaara
kal jo mujhe in galiyon mein laaya woh bhi thha haath tumhaara
aaj to meri hansi udaai
jaise bhi chaaha pukaara

sab ko gunaahon mein magan dekha
dekha shareefon ka chalan dekha
sab ko gunaahon mein magan dekha
dekha shareefon ka chalan dekha
sab ki inaayat haay dekhi meine ho
mere hi dil ke tukde ko mera aashiq keh ke pukaara
kal jo mujhe in galiyon mein laya
woh bhi tha haath tumhaara
aaj to meri hansi udaai
jaise bhi chaaha pukaara

I miss Meena ji` magical expressions, and the lazy afternoons when I used to listen this song through radio(Must be Summer school vacation holiday days)Lataji,meenaji. R.D & Majrooh(deadly combination)

I miss my those days,”Koi lauta de mere beee huye din,beete huye din re mere pyaare palchhin”

Thank you Khyathi ji and atulji, for bringing back my childhood fond precious memories.


Again I want to know about this character actor Rajan Haksar, who appears in this song alonwith I.s.Johar,
Lalitha kumari(Hrishikesh Mukherjee favourite),Master Alankar Joshi and my favourite,the great “MANORAMA”

Whether Rajan Haksar is the husband of Manorama, the character artiste??????


hullo Prakashchandraji
the link i am giving here is to an interview that Manorama Daneil gave to FIlmfare magazine in July 2001.
it shd answer many of ur questions


Thanks Peevesie’s Mom ji for the info on Manoroma. I never knew so much about her. What she said about some kind of fund for these our Golden Era actors was true. So many of our actors from that period had misserable last years of their life. I saw her last movie- “Water” by Deepa Mehta.


Thank you

Peevesie`s Mom ji for the information



ur welcome


R. D. Burman got very few chances to mujra/kotha type song. He had the other club/dance type song in its place. This particular song if heard, is not at all mujra like composition. ‘Raina beet jaaye” from Amar Prem and the mujra on Reena Roy in ‘Rocky” are a lot better.


What about Chote nawab:
2 “mujra type” songs composed by Rahul Dev Burman????(with shailendra??)
a)Lata:Ghar aa jaa ghir aayee baderaa sanwaariyaa(picturised on Sheila Vaz)
b)Lata & Chorus:Churaake dil ban rahe hain bhole, jaise kuchch jaanthe nahin(Atulji, Lyrics are with you.-picturised on Ameeta,Bela Bose, Aruna)


I just remembered a superb mujra picturised on Waheeda rehmaan(& Rammohan) from
1) Gulzar`s NAMKEEN:Asha Bhonsle:Rahuldev burman:
“Badi der se megha barsaa o raamaa,jale kitni ratiyaan”(This one is very good)

and the forgotten , obscure ,melodious mujra picturised on Zarina Wahab, Macmohan,mithun(picturised for the situation of film shooting)(directed by Gulzar`s assistant Meraj)
2)SITAARA(1980)gulzar:asha bhonsle:rahul dev burman
“Aap aaye gareebkhaane mein, aag si lag gayee zamaane mein”

3)Khote sikkley:1974:asha,usha mangeshkar:”Pyaaree pyaare ho sooratwaale:rehana sulthana and co:r.d.burman

And my favourite one, It is very meldious and picturised sensitively also
4)”MEHBOOBA:lata:hemamalini:”Main tawaif hoon mujra karoongi”(aapke shehar mein, aayee hoon shaukh se)

5)Raja rani:1973:anand bakshi:r.d.burman:3 melodious mujra songs by lata-sharmila combination
a)laal chunariya odhke, dil ke tukde jodke…ghunghroo baandh liye(picturisation was spoiled by Sharmila tagore`s strange dancing skills
b)lata:sharmila:jaare jaa maine tujhe jaan liya re
c)lata:na tumse huyee na humse huyee…donon se mohabbat ho na sakee


Rahuldevburman mujra songs:

1)Charitraheen:1974:Asha bhonsle:dil daike jaan lai gaya daga beimaan dai gaya
(Arpana chaudhary,sanjeev kumar,manmohana)

2)Do chor:1972:lata:Laxmichhaya,dharmendra,tanuja:Mora chhota sa baalmwaa bhi pyaar na jaane

3)Maati Maange khoon:1984:Raj khosla:rekha,shathrughna sinha:
a)lata:chhup jaa chaand sitaaron ki neeyat teek nahin
b)lata: Lo saahib phir bhool gayee main, yaad mujhe kuchh aayaa thaa

4)Naukri:1978:asha bhonsle:anand bakshi:Padma khanna,tom altor,rajesh khanna,raj kapoor:”Teri duhaayee harjaee tere naam se main badnaam ho gayee….”

5)Namak Haraam:1973:
asha bhonsle,usha mangeshkar:jayashree.t.:Sooni re sajariyaa saajan bin tere

6)Kaalia:1981:asha bhonsle:Hina kausar,amjad khan:dil tho dete nahin, kehte ho sawaal achcha hai, woh alag baandhke rakha hai,jo maal achaha hai”

7)Jeeva:1986:Asha Bhonsle:Rita rani kaul, sanjay dutt,sachin, pran:
“Bas ek nazar pe jaan ka daaromdaar hai

8)Yaari zindagi:Long in the making film(1971-2008)asha bhonsle:naache mera pyaar dekho naa…:sharada(south)shatrughna sinha,amithab bachchan

9)Faisla:1978-1988:Asha bhonsle:bindu,sujeet kumar:andheri hai raat sajan,rahiyo ke jai ho
