Wo door jo nadiya behti hai

Posted on: August 11, 2012


Jagdeep and Nanda played lovebirds in “Bhaabhi” (1957). Two years later, they play brother and sister in “Barkha” (1959).

Both these movies had another thing in common, viz lyrics by Rajinder Krishan and music by Chitragupta. Jagdeep had got a song to sing in “Bhaabhi” (1957), namely Chali chali re patang meri chali re. Here in “Barkha” (1959), we find Jagdeep and Nanda singing a bhai-bahan duet as they are travelling in 1950s style, viz on a bullock cart. 🙂

The song is sung by Rafi and Lata. In the song, the two tease each other. The teasing is about their marital status of being single.

Nanda looks cute whereas Jagdeep as usual looks like a comedian as always even in a picturisation where he is supposed to look suitably sombre and dignified.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Khyati Bhatt.

Song-Wo door jo nadiya behti hai (Barkha)(1959) Singers-Rafi, Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics(Provided by Khyati Bhatt)

wo door jo nadiya behti hai
wahaan ek albeli rehti hai
wo door jo nadiya behti hai
wahaan ek albeli rehti hai
sun bhaiya wohi meri bhabhi hai
gora mukhda hai gaal gulaabi hai
gora mukhda hai gaal gulaabi hai

dekho us peepal ke neeche
koi mast khada hai ankhiyaan meenche
ho dekho us peepal ke neeche
koi mast khada hai ankhiyaan meenche

mat dekh uthhake le jaayega
tujhe apna banake le jaayega
tujhe apna banake le jaayega

dekho wo baadal aawaara
phirta hai ye kyun maara maara
dekho wo baadal aawaara
phirta hai ye kyun maara maara
main jaan gayi ye bechaara hai
mere bhaiya jaisa kunwaara hai
mere bhaiya jaisa kunwaara hai

wo panchhi jo udta jaata hai
meethi dhun mein kuchh gaata hai
wo panchhi jo udta jaata hai
meethi dhun mein kuchh gaata hai
kehta hai tu pee ghar jaayegi
phir bhaiya ko yaad na aayegi
phir bhaiya ko yaad na aayegi

chal aisi jubaan par baat na laa
hanste hanste pee ke ghar jaa
chal aisi jubaan par baat na laa
hanste hanste pee ke ghar jaa
teri raakhi ki laaj nibhaoonga
jeete ji na tujh ko bhulaaoonga
jeete ji na tujh ko bhulaaoonga

There is a nice lata-Geeta duet of brother and sister teasing each other in ‘toofan aur diya’ (1956). It might have been posted already but I could not find it with a quick search.

What a sweet song this is! Hearing it for the first time today. I like the lyrics by Rajinder Krishan – and also the picturisation on Jagdeep and Nanda is very nice.

Am not surprised the music is by Chitragupt. I’ve always liked him – he may not be one of the biggies but he has composed many melodious and pleasant tunes like this one.

Gaddeswarup-ji, the Lata-Geeta duet from ‘Toofan aur Diya’ is “Meri Choti si Behan Dekho…” It’s indeed a delightful ‘Bhai-Behan teasing song’

Raja-ji, you’re right. Chitragupt was so talented. But, like Madan Mohan, never got his due recognition from Hindi moviedom. In ‘Bhabhi’ there’s a cute ‘teasing’ song by Lata, though it’s not a ‘brother-sister’ song. A sweet, innocent Nanda teases Jagdeep with, “Tai (tie) lagake maana ban gaye janab hero, rahe padhhayi ya likhhayi me tho zero zero…” I wonder if it has featured here in this blog…….

Oh Arun~ji, bahut bahut shukriya! Coincidentally, I just finished listening to it on YouTube a few minutes back! By the way, I’m not too sure but I think Jagdeep and Nanda are not ‘bhai-behan’ in this movie.

You are right.Baldev or billoo(Jagdeep) is the Hero Balraj Sahani’s younger brother and Lata(Nanda) is the child widowed sister of Billoo’s Bhabhi-Shanta(Pandharibai).

Aaah yes! Ab yaad aa raha hai! Pandhari Bai had a well etched role that she did very well! All through the movie, she’s an obedient wife to Balraj Sahni. Once, she speaks excellent English to correct Jagdeep’s English! He is shocked! As are we, the audience! She confesses to Jagdeep that as a young girl, she had gone to school and that she speaks good English. But she has kept it a secret from her husband as he’s barely literate and she doesn’t want him to develop a complex! I tell you, Arun-ji, even today if you watch this scene, you’ll find it a very poignant one! No melodrama, no histrionics. Very understated scene actually…….

Wow!! A wife hiding her knowledge of English! Some era, huh?! Reminds me of one of the failed relationships where how to correctly pronounce SCHEDULE led to eventual disaster! 🙂 In India, people pronounce it with D, but it should be with J 🙂

This duet was playing more than regular on AIR, due to listeners demand. It was Lata-Rafi…Sis/bro..songs that had no-romantic tone like their so many other duets. So this duet come as a family version duet, kind of PG ratings, can be listen with the elders/family around. That never happened before. So this duet has seen popularity during it’s hay days.
Since Nanda / Jagdeep are not a bro/sis in this movie, and Nanda is child widow. Means he wasn’t able to express his love to a widow young lady.
So now I understand this duet…it has subtle message…that someone, somewhere is waiting for either of them…so should they go for that (unknown) person or should settle with each-other?
Wow, I have heard this duet hundred times…and one sentence from Arunji and I understood the deep meaning of this duet…
So, now I am watching/listing with different prospective 🙂
Great..
