Peer peer kyaa karta re teri peer na jaane koye

Posted on: September 10, 2012

“Achhoot Kanya” (1936) was a Bombay Talkies production. It was produced by Himanshu Rai and directed by Franz Osten. The movie had Ashok Kumar and Devika Rani in lead roles with P F Pithawala, Kamta Prasad, Kishori Lal, Kusum Kumari, Pramila, Anwari, Ishrat etc also there in the movie.

The movie was a huge success at the box office. The song Main ban ki chidiya has become an immortal song. But this movie had several other songs in it and they all deserve to be better known among music lovers.

As many as six songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the seventh song from the movie. It is sung by Ashok Kumar and it is picturised on himself. J S Kashyap is the lyricist. Music is composed by Saraswati Devi.

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

Song-Peer peer kya karta re teri peer na jaane koye (Achhoot Kanya)(1936) Singer-Ashok Kumar, Lyrics-J S Kashyap, MD-Saraswati Devi

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

peer peer kya karta re
teri peer na jaane koye
peer peer kya karta re
teri pir na jaane koye

tere dil ki lagi koi kyaa jaane
tann peer bani koi kyaa jaane
ghaayal ki gati ghaayal jaane
aur na jaane koye
ghaayal ki gati ghaayal jaane
aur na jaane koye
peer peer kya karta re
teri pir na jaane koye
peer peer kya karta re
teri peer na jaane koye
