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

Maiyya Yashoda ye tera Kanhaiyya

Posted on: August 10, 2012

Janmashtami is a festival that is celebrated all over the country by all hindu communities. It signifies the birth of Lord Krishna in the Jail where Devaki was imprisoned. The story is that after he was born Vasudeva transports him to Gokul to the home of Yashoda. Hence the next day, viz. the day after Janmashtami is celebrated as Gokulashtami with his life in Gokul being re-enacted as Dahi Handi. As Yashoda was the one who brought him up, she is often regarded as the Maiyya of Krishna. For me the festival entails having sweets being fried, and then stored in the house for me to eat in “krishna-style” for the next few days. 😀

Hindi Cinema has a range of Songs that celebrate this day. My favorites would be “More panghat pe” from “Mughal-e-Azam” (1960) and “Zu Zu Zu yashoda ka nandlala” from “Sanjog” (1981). But today I am sending one of my newer favorite songs. New by the standard of Atul’s blog of course. The song as such is a 13 yr old song from the Rajshri Productions movie – “Hum saath Saath Hai” (1999).

As I joked to my mother, a simple copy paste of the cast list of this movie would be the right thing to do to tell the actors on whom this song is picturised. As far as I can keep track only 5 characters from the starcast of the movie aren’t shown in the song. Considering the movie has as many as 40 “Main” Characters this is no small feat. The three young main couples have each been given a paragraph to themselves. The song begins with Karishma Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan dancing together. Then the song moves to Sonali Bendre and Salman Khan after the first antara. The last antara is chiefly devoted to Tabu singing to Monish Behl who of course cannot dance in this movie as his hand is crippled. She is joined by the other two heroines as well. The heroines and heroes are supported in their dance and romance by the fourth young couple viz. Neelam and Mahesh Thakur.

The interesting observation of the picturisation is the reduction of dance steps as the song progresses. Karishma who is a much acclaimed dancer gets the maximum dance attention. Sonali Bendre get slightly less and she is shown taking more interest in romancing her love interest than in lip syncing the song. Once Tabu enters the scene the other heroines stop dancing and the camera starts. All Fathers and the mothers look along dotingly at all the youngsters while this happens. The fathers of Karishma, Sonali and Tabu are played by Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Satish Shah, Rajeev Verma respectively. Alok nath and Reema Laagoo play the parents to the three heroes.

The various other actors who make their appearances in the song are Shakti Kapoor, Ajit Vachani, Dinesh Hingoo, Himani Shivpuri, Shammi, Huma Khan, Master Zakki, Master Hardik, Zoya Afroz, Master Bunty Kotak, Master Vinni Pachori, Baby Richa Madhusudan, Baby Sneha Rao, Master Yash Antani, Baby Shraddha Srivastav and Master Harsh Shah.

The song has been sung by Kavita Krishnamoorty( for Karishma Kapoor), Alka Yagnik(for Sonali Bendre)and Anuradha Paudwal( for Tabu). The music Director is Ram-Laxman. The movie had four lyricists, namely R.Kiran, Mitali Shashank, Ravinder Rawal and Dev Kohli. R Kiran is the lyricist of this song.

Lyrics

Maiyya Yashoda
Yeh tera kanhaiyya
Maiyya Yashoda
Yeh tera kanhaiyya
Panghat pe mere
pakde hai bainyaan
Tang mujhe karta hai
Sang mere ladta haay
Ramji ki kripa se
main bachi ramji ki kripa se
main bachi ramji ki kripa se
Maiyya Yashoda
Yeh tera kanhaiyya
Panghat pe mere
pakde hai bainyaan
Tang mujhe karta hai
Sang mere ladta haay
Ramji ki kripa se
main bachi ramji ki kripa se
main bachi ho ramji ki kripa se

Gokul ke galiyon mein jamuna kinaare
Woh Mohe kankariya chhup chhup ke maare
Natkhat adaayein
soorat hai bholi
Holi mein meri bhigoye woh choli
Bainyaan na chode
kalaiyaa marode
Bainyaan na chode
kalaiyaa marode
Paiyan padoon phir bhi peecha na chhode
Meethi meethi baton mein mujhko phansaaye haay
Ramji ki kripa se
main bachi ramji ki kripa se
main bachi ho ramji ki kripa se

Jab jab bajaaye mohan muraliya
Chhan chhan chhankti hai meri paayaliya
Nainon se jab woh kare chhedkhaani
Dil thaame reh jaaye prem deewani
Sud budh ganwaayi
neenden udaayi
Sud budh ganwaayi
neenden udaayi
Jo karne baithi thi
woh kar na payi
Badi mushkil se dil ko sambhaala haay
Ramji ki kripa se
main bachi ramji ki kripa se
main bachi haan ramji ki kripa se

Gokul ka kanha har dil mein samayaa
Main bhagyashali inhe maine paaya
Maana ke sabke hai yeh kanhaiyya
Kehlaayenge par tumhaare hi maiyya
Pyaara piya hai
tumne diya hai
Pyaara piya hai
tumne diya hai
Mamta ke aanchal mein humko liya hai
Charnon mein teri oh maa humko rehna hai
Ramji ki kripa se

haan ji haan ramji ki kripa se
haan ji haan ramji ki kripa se

Peevesie,
Thanks for sharing this song on auspicious occasion. I have never heard this song. Lyrics are very energetic but the song kind of getting boring toward the ending. But the diversity of the singers has save this song from being getting boring.
it shows that the potential was there for this to be a masterpiece, but the film and song missing Madhuri and Lata-both receptively and expressively.
I haven’t seen this film or wasn’t even aware of thsi film until recently.
May I asked, if you know…Who is this girl in blue dress? at the end of the song she hugged to Aloknath.
Thanks for sharing.
