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

Janam din aayaa aayaa

Posted on: August 1, 2012

“Bahaaron Ki Manzil” (1968) was a Rizvi Brothers production. It was produced by Sibte Hasan Rizvi and directed by Yakub Hasan Rizvi. The movie had Meena Kumari, Dharmendra, Rehman, Farida Jalal, TunTun, Mallika, Polson, Wasti, Anwar Hashmi, Shefali, Sheikh, Ramayan Tiwari etc in it.

On the occasion of Meena Kumari’s birthday (1 august), here is a birthday song from “Bahaaron Ki Manzil” (1968). The song is sung by Lata and it is lip synced by Meena Kumari. The picturisation shows Meena Kumari’s daughter’s birthday being celebrated, with many kids assembled who sing in chorus in the song.

The video link is of poor quality and it ends abruptly. The audio link had the full song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

aha ahaa lllallllala
aha aha
ahahaaaa.. lalalalala
ahaahaa lalalala

janam din aayaaa aaayaaa
mamtaa ki jyot jaagi
janam din aayaa aayaa…..
mamtaa ki jyot jaagi

ke hansti rahe sada yun hi meri
chaand taaron ki shaahazaadi
aahhahhaaa lalalala
ahaahaa lalalala

rangon bharaa gudiyaa ko
joda pehnaake
o o o
rangon bharaa gudiyaa ko
jodaa pehnaake
armaan ki kaliyon se
angna sajaake
matwaali maamtaa ne
apne dil ki shamaa jalaa dee
janam din aayaa aayaa
mamtaa ki jyot jaagi

ke hansti rahe sada yoon hi meri
chaand taaron ki shaahzaadi
aaha ahhhaaa lalalala
ahha ahha llallala
(laughing sound)

aaa aaa aaa
o o o
aaaaa aaaaa aaaa

taaron ka lekar tohfaa
chandaa bhi aayaa
o o o
taaron ka lekar tohfaaa
chandaa bhi aayaa
raani ke laayak humne
kuchch bhi naa paaayaa
phir nanhi umar pe waari hokar
apni umar milaa dee
janam din aayaa aayaa
mamtaa ki jyot jaagee

She would be 81 if she were still alive:(
I don’t know how octogenarian Meena would look 🙂
May be some computer guy can make an age progression picture of her.
Once I saw Elvis Presley picture…
Some time it’s fun to do our own 🙂


God forbid; she had puffy eyes in even in her forties…
