On the occasion of the 64th republic day of India (26 january 2013), here is a song from “Amar Shaheed” (1960). This movie was a Padmini Pictures production. It was directed by B R Panthalu. The movie had Padmini, Gemini Ganeshan, Ragini, Shivaji Ganeshan etc in it.

This patriotic song is sung by Rafi and chorus.

Only the audio of this song is available. Details about this song are difficult to come by. According to, Arjun is the lyricist of this song. Music is composed by Jamal Sen.

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

Female chorus

Lyrics (Provided by Nitin Shah)

raat zulm ki ee ee
katt jaayegi
bhaagega andhiyaara
door nahin ujiyaara
raat zulm ki katt jaayegi
bhaagega andhiyaara
door nahin ujiyara
door nahi ujiyaara
raat zulm ki katt jaayegi
bhaagega andhiyaara
door nahi ujiyaara
door nahi ujiyaara

toofanon ke beech desh ka
tu hi hai dhruv taara
tu aazaadi ki kashti ka
keval ek sahaara
andhiyaari raahon per toone
andhiyaari raahon per toone
chalkar yahi pukaara
door nahin ujiyaara
o o o o
hmm hmm hmm hmm

zalim ki hasti ko tune
aage bhad dhikkara
teri kurbani ne soye
veero ko lalkaara
sun lo sadiyaan yaad karegi ee
sun lo sadiyaan yaad karegi
tera jauhar pyara
door nahi ujiyaara
raat zulm ki katt jaayegi
bhaagega andhiyaara
door nahin ujiyaara
door nahi ujiyaara

amar shaheed chitaa per teri
laga rahega mela
toone apne khoon se likha
ye itihaas sunehla
ye itihaas sunhela
gaye firangi abb lehraaya
ye armaan tumhaara
aaj hua ujiyaara
vande matram
vande matram
vande matram
vande matram
vande matram

Thanks for this post Atul ji, Shah Saheb !! nice song and i hear it first time today, also not heard about this movie. thanks for bringing this song to us !!!



Amar Shaheed is the Hindi version of the Tamil movie of the same year, Veerapandiya Kattabomman. The story is a depiction of the life of Veerapandiya Kattabomman, a 18th century rural chieftain from near Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu, who bravely refused to acknowledge the sovereignty of the East India Company and instead chose to fight them. It is a matter of great irony that the man who finally turned traitor against him was his own brother. Kattabomman was publicly hanged at Kayatharu, a small village in the Tirunelveli district, where even today there exists a memorial at the exact site where he was hanged.

The Indian Navy’s premier communication establishment located near Tirunelveli is called INS Kattabomman in honour of this great hero.

The Tamil version of this film is considered a cult classic, thanks to the stupendous performance of Shivaji Ganesan. His fiery dialogues, especially in a sequence where he confronts the Collector Jackson and refuses to acknowledge the East India Company’s sovereignty have made this film immortal.


Just noticed that the year is mentioned as 1960..I think it ought to be 1959..

Here is the link to another song from the same movie:


“Amar Shaheed” was released in 1960. Youtube entry is incorrect.


Ok sir..I stand corrected!!


Dear Karthik,
Thanks for giving the dope on the film. It was a revelation for us.


I am really happy that u have posted this song of Amar Shaheed 1960, I am proud of my father ARJUN ( late Shri Arjun Joshi) who penned all songs of this film.


Mr Karthik A Bhatt has given full picture about the Tamil Movie. It was a super hit movie which was dubbed in Hindi as Amar Shaheed. Shri Arjun Joshi has given a wonderful lyric to the Tamil Tune of G.Ramanathan.

I am very happy to visit your site for the first time.

I am in the process of compiling all the copied Tamil songs from Hindi or English. I just focused on old songs so far. Process is still going on.

is that play list for your reference.

You can see three more dubbed songs in youtube links


Here is the video of this awesome song !!!
