koyee kahe kaaro

koyee kahe halko

leeyo hai taraaju tol
mere toh giridhar gopaal
doosro na koyee ee
mere toh giridhar gopaal
doosro na koyee

koyee kahe chhaane
koyee kahe chhavane
koyee kahe chhaane
koyee kahe chhavne
leeyo hai bajta dhol
tann ka gehnaa
main sab kuch deena
tann ka gehnaa

deeyo hai baajuband khol

mere toh giridhar gopaal
doosro na koyee ee
mere toh giridhar gopaal
doosro na koyee
jaake sar mor mukut
mero pati soyee ee
mere toh giridhar gopaal
doosro na koyee

Wah wah! It’s such a pleasure listening to this Meera ;bhajan’. Even though M S Subbalakshmi had immortalised the Meera ‘bhajans’ in the eponymous ‘Meera’ made in the 1940s, Vani Jairam has done justice with her clear mellifluous voice and her effortless rendering.of the ‘bhajans’. Not many know that the makers of this movie had approached Lata Mangeshkar to sing these songs. She,as is her wont, had thrown a tantrum. She had demanded that her brother Hridhayanath Mangeshkar compose the music for the movie. Ultimately, her loss was Vani Jairam’s gain. And Vani got to sing the ‘bhajans’ set to beautiful music by Pandit Ravi Shankar!

Maniji,
What we heard was quite different. In the beginning Laxmi-Pyare were MD for this movie. Lata refused to sing because she already sang so many Meera bhajans (NFS).Without her LP rejected to compose the music.So came Pt. Ravi Shankar.
This is what came in the newspaper before the release of the movie. Both replacements proved to be successful.

Love to listen to “Meera” songs in the morning. Vani Jairam and Pt Ravi Shankar!!! All bhajans are best, my fav being “ai ri main to prem diwaani….” The aalap VJ starts, makes you cry.

Thanks Prakashji and Atulji.

Pardon me. The singing of Vani Jayaram is fine, though it doesn’t have the intensity and passion of MS. However, Hemamalini is a pale, pastel imitation compared to MS 50 or 60 (or more) years ago.

Mere closing of eyes doesn’t convey the bhakti that is being portrayed here.

True. Very true, Krishna Pillalamarri-ji! Hema Malini may have looked oh-so-gorgeous but M S Subbalakshmi had ‘bhakti’ glowing around her in every scene of the movie.
