Antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar

Posted on: May 22, 2012


“Raajhath” (1956) was a Minerva Movietone Presentation. It was directed by Sohrab Modi. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Madhubala, Pradeep Kumar, Ulhas etc in it.

As many as four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is another song from the movie. This song is a duet sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

Only the audio of this song is available so it is difficult to tell how and on whom this song is picturised. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us aboiut the picturisation of this song.
Ps-Now thanks to Mr sadanand Kamath popinting me to the video of this song, I notice that it is a disguise cum dance song. ant idea who the artists are ?

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar
haath mein hai taqdeer ka naksha
ho gaya beda paar
antar mantar jantar se
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar

jab aayaa darwaaza pehla hamane use dhakela
khulate hi darwaaza dekha ujiyaaron ka mela
raste mein ik burzi dekhi dhokha dene waali
raste mein ik burzi dekhi dhokha dene waali
us burzi ke paas gaye to saamane dekhi jaali
antar mantar jantar se
chhod ke burzi badhe gaye aage ham bhi the hushiyaar
haath mein hai taqdeer ka naksha ho gayaa beda paar
antar mantar jantar se
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar

jab dooja darwaaza aaya us par dekha taala
akkal ki chaabi laga ke hamane maze se khola taala
phir dekhe chaubaare hamne jin par tha andhiyaaraa
phir dekhe chaubaare hamne jin par tha andhiyaaraa
door kaheen par khidaki chamki jyun badali mein taara
antar mantar jantar se
aashaaon ke deep jalaaye ham bhi ho gaye paar
haath mein hai taqdeer ka naksha ho gayaa beda paar
antar mantar jantar se
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar

gairon ke mahalo mein pahunche
bhed churaakar laaye
sab darwaaze chor bane the
choron se takaraaye
chakkar ne sau chakkar daale
phir bhi na ghabaraaye
chakkar ne sau chakkar daale
phir bhi na ghabaraaye
jaise chal kar ham pahunche the
vaise vaapas aaye
antar mantar jantar se
apani manzil jeet ke aaye
na maane ham haar
haath mein hai taqadeer ka naksa
ho gaya beda paar
antar mantar jantar se
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar
haath mein hai taqadeer ka naksa
ho gaya beda paar
antar mantar jantar se
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar
antar mantar jantar se maidaan liya hai maar

I love this song, and loved the movie also, a lot.

I too had seen this movie but I was just seven years old. What I remember are the lovely songs. And Madhubala. By the way, I checked up and I discovered that this duet is sung by Madhubala and her friend (I think she’s Kammoo). For some reason, Madhubala is dresed as a male with a mustache! Obviously they’ve come to rescue someone. And that someone may be Pradeep Kumar………….

No Mani, Madhubala and her friend go to the neighbouring kingdom to spy on them. This is their ‘debriefing report’ on their return.

Menon ji,
your guess is half right.
The dancer is Madhubala(Rajkumari of Jagatpur) and Kammo(Juhi,Rajkumari’s saheli).
They have come there to cheat Pradeep kumar(Rajkumar of Sultanpur,with whom her engagement is broken),out of a map of the fort of Sultanpur,to attack it.

Bahut bahut dhanyavadh, Arunkumar-ji. I presume Sohrab Modi plays Pradeep Kumar’s father.

No Mani, Sohrab Modi plays Madhubala’s father. Do try and see the film, it is sweet and though the end is sort of sad also, it is really worth a see.
