Purwaa suhaanee aayee re purwaa

Posted on: January 9, 2012

Here is a classic “what ! This song was not yet posted !” category of song. 🙂 All these days, I was firmly under the belief that this song was discussed long back. 🙂

It took the occasion of Mahendra Kapoor’s birthday (9th january) for me to realise the fact that this song was not yet discussed in the blog.

Here is this memorable song from “Purab Aur Paschim” (1970). This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor, Lata, Manhar Udhas and chorus. The song is picturised on Manoj Kumar, Bharati, Saira Bano, Vinod Khanna, Rajendranath etc. Santosh Anand is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Lyrics of this song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

kahin na aisi subahaa dekhi
aaaaa…a.aaaaaaa. aaaaa.
jaise baalak ki… muskaan
yaa phir door kahin mandir mein
halki si murli ki taan
gurubaani gurudwaare mein
to maszid se uthati aazaan
aatmaa aur parmatmaa mile jahaan
yahi …..hai woh sthaan

dholi dhol bajaanaa
taal se taal milaanaa
dholi dholaa dholi dhola
dholi dhol bajaanaa
ta ta thaiyaa tak tak thaiyya
taal se taal milaanaa

purwaa suhaani aayee re
ae ae
purwaa suhaani aayee re
ae ae
rituoon ki raani aayee re purwaa
mere ruke nahin paanv
naach utthha saaraa gaanv
preet pe jawaani chhaayee re
ae ae purwaa
purwaa suhaani aayee re
ae ae

mausam ka musaafir
khadaa raste mein

la la la lallalalalalaala
o ..oo..mausam ka musaafir
khadaa raste mein

uske haathon sab kuchch
lutaa saste mein
chhoti si umariyaa hai
lambi si dagariyaa re
jeevan hai parchchaayeen re
ae ae purwaa
purwaa suhaani aayee re
ae ae purwaa
hoye dholi dhol bajanaaa bajaanaa
hoye taal se taal milaanaa milaanaa

kar le
kar bhi le
pyaar ki pooja
la la la lala lalalalala
kar le
kar bhi le
pyaar ki pooja
pyaar ke rang pe
chadhe na rang dooja
chaahe koi sapnaa hai
mere liye apnaa hai
baat meri ban aayee re
ae ae ae ae
purwaa suhaani aayee re
ae ae

ho… Meera si deewaani re
naache mastaani
Meera si deewaani re
naache mastaani

honthon pe hai sargam
to aankhon mein paani
ghunghroo deewaane huye
rishte puraane huye
geet mein kahaani gaayee re
ae ae
purwaa suhaani aayee re
ae ae
hoye doli dhol bajaanaa bajaanaa
hoye taal se taal milanaa milaanaa
dholi dhol bajaanaa
(hooooooo ooooooo)
taal se taal milanaa (hooooooooo)
dholi dhol bajaanaa(hooooooo ooooooo)
taal se taal milanaa (hoooooooo)

ho o o o o

Oh, this wasn’t posted till now? Lovely song. This movie has lovely songs even if it exploits the then-prevalent mantra in the country that “the West is decadent, India is a land of virtue”. I found this mantra extremely unfair – and the way it is shoved down one’s throat is what’s most disgusting about it.


Bharthi is very famous in kannada & other south indian langauage movies, In fact she married Kannada movie popular hero
Late Vishnuvardhan.
She acted in following hindi movies:
Hum tum aur woh(1971-with vinod khanna)(priye praneshwari song fame)
Aankh micholi(1972-with rakesh roshan)
Ghar Ghar ki kahaani(1970-rakesh roshan)
Duniya kya jaane(with premendra)
Saadhu aur shaitan(1968-with mehmood)
Kunwara Baap(1974-vinod mehra,mehmood)
Mastana(1970-vinod khanna,mehmood)
Seema(1971-rakesh roshan,kabir bedi,simmi)
Izzatdaar(1990-with dilip kumar,govinda,madhuri dixit)
Uttar Dakshin(1987-mother to Rajnikant-with Kulbhushan Kharbanda)
Aao Pyaar karein(1995-Grand mother to Saif ali khan)
Khel(with Madhuri dixit)
Sabka Saathi(1972-vinod khanna,rakhee)


Yes. Bharathi was a star heroine of 1960s and 1970s in south indian films. She acted with all star heroes during her time like Dr.Raj kumar, A.N.R, Sivaji, MGR, NTR, Gemini ganeshan,
Krishna, Shoban babu, Jaishankar, Ravichandran,
Vishnuvardhan, Kalyan Kumar, Sivakumar, Uday Kumar, Ambarish, Ananth Nag and many other heroes.
She was the best ever pair with Dr.Raj in kannada.


Her performance in films like Runamukthalu (1984, Kannada, directed by Puttanna Kanagal),
Avalukkendru Oru Manam (1971, Tamil), Duniya Kya Jane(hindi)
(both directed by C.V.Sridhar), Doorada Betta (1973, Kannada) and many others.
But at the peak of her carrier she couldn’t get many films,which would showcased her talent. She acted in very few female centric films . But her contemporaries recieved many female centric films.
One more important point is that, she might have lost many such offers during journey from mumbai to Chennai.
