Morey naina bahaayen neer

Posted on: August 31, 2012

“Baawarchi”(1972) was produced by Hrishikesh Mukherji and N C Sippy and directed by Hrishikesh Mukherji. The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Jaya Bhaduri, Usha Kiran, Manisha, A. K. Hangal, Harindranath Chattopadhyay, Suraj, Paintal, Kali Banerjee, Durga Khote, Asrani etc in it.

Two songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the third song from the movie.

This song is a stage song cum semi classical song. The song is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Jaya Bhaduri who is masquerading as a dancer on stage. Durga Khote, seated among the audience is quite unhappy about something though Harindranath Chattopadhyay appears quite impressed with Jaya Bhaduri’s “dancing”. Jaya Bhaduri surprisingly ends up winning the dance competition despite this non dance. 🙂

Peevesie, who sent me the lyrics of this song, thought that the lyrics were written by Gulzar but she was surprised to realise that Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

The video link has one stanza less, but the audio link that is provided has the complete song.

Lyrics(Provided by Peevesie)

Morey naina bahaayen neer
morey naina bahaayen neer
sakhi ka karoon
mora jiya na maane
ka karoon,
mora jiya na maane
morey naina bahaayen neer

pal chhin pee ki raah nihaaroon
pal chhin pee ki raah nihaaroon
saanjh sakhaare unko pukaroon
bhatkoon main jamuna ke teeeer
bhatkoon main jamuna ke teeer
morey naina bahaayen neer

kaaga jo boley toh ankhiyaan phakden
kaaga jo boley toh ankhiyaan phakden
birha ki agni aur bhi bhadke
jal jal jaaye shareeeer
jal jal jaaye shareer
morey naina bahayen neer

aansoon bahe
jaise nadiya ki dhaara
nadiya ki dhaara mein preetam pyaara
banke kamal muskaaye
ae ae
bairi bas mein na aaye
ae ae
jaaun kahaan
jaaun kahaan
jaaun kahaan
mora manva hua adheeeer
manva hua adheeer
morey naina bahaayen neer
sakhi ka karoon mora jiya na maane
ka karoon,
mora jiya na maane
morey naina bahaayen neer
morey naina

Durga Khote is unhappy because her own daughter is losing out to her niece Jaya Bhaduri in the dance competition. Harindranath is happy because her grand daughter Jaya who sort of grew up without parents; had to do the household chores and had no time/resources for learning dance is winning instead of the other grand daughter, who is the spoiled and pampered one….


All credit goes to Raghu, the Baawarchi (RK) 🙂
