Arrey ho goriya kahaan tera des re

Now it is finally the time for this song. This is waiting in the sidelines for almost two years now. I sent the lyrics for this song long back. And as I do usually, I had been waiting patiently for this song to be be posted.

Whatever, I managed to dig up the email containing the lyrics of this song. As expected, the youtube link was no longer operational. Than I found a link for the video of this song. Unlike other songs, the links for this song are few.

This song is good to look at too. I was too enraptured by this song to note down the lyrics. I have made some corrections in the lyrics sent earlier and also colour coding which was not there earlier.

Surprisingly, this is one R D Burman song which is one of the fresh sounding, peppy and hummable song, which is all but lost, as it is not heard anywhere. Not in any radio programme , T.V. shows etc. As far as I am concerned this could go on playing and I will not get bored or tired of hearing it. There is a certain spirit and camaraderie in it which is sweet too. Agreed, that not everybody is likely to share my opinion, but I was surprised at the lack of audio links for this song.

In the song, the caravan of ‘banjaras’ i.e. Aruna Irani and her troupe are moving again led by the ‘khatara’ bus which belongs to Jeetendra and his friends (Junior Mehmood with ?). As Jeetendra is committed to helping Asha Parekh, who he thinks is lost and separated from her family, he is trying to ask her where is her house, so, the song is ‘goriya kahaan teraa des’. For her part Asha Parekh prefers to stay lost, to avoid her husband and uncle who are planning to kill her with the intention of usurping her property. Aruna Irani likes Jeetendra and is jealous of the growing closeness between Jeetendra and Asha Parekh. So there is a triangle here. Aruna Irani is in her element in this movie with a side heroine role and songs to sing. As the song is ending, the caravan has to stop as the bus has stopped. The engine is kicked by the drunk driver and it starts. Much like we used to hit our old radio on the sides if it stopped. Even the old T.V.’s were given the same ‘thwack’ therapy if they played traunt :-). The wooden bodies could stand it. Old habits die hard and we are guilty of according the same treatment to the big bodied desk top monitors. Bless the ignorance and the ignorants. Things are really not the same anymore, what with the LCD monitors tabs and pocket books.

Ba’qaul shaayer :
Kya husn ne samjha hai kya ishq ne jaana hai
Hum kh’aaq nasheeno ki thokar pe zamana hai

This is duet sung by Rafi and Asha Bhosle, with chorus. Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and the music is by R D Burman.

Right from the word go, i.e. ” hey goriyaa jaldi aa re ” it is lively and vibrant Rafi all the way. Asha is not lagging behind, but it is Rafi’s voice that lingers.

Thank you for finding the longer audio link. I tried always with ‘arey ho goriya kahan tera des re ‘

The right word here is ‘naa din’ :

o dekh dekh re udta baadal
‘ naa din ‘ ruke na raat

Jeetendra`s another friend`s role was enacted by Ravindra Kapoor in this movie.He is also there in the song. And another male character is Anwar ali(Aruna Irani`s one sided lover-Mehmood`s real life brother)and junior dancer featured in this song is Sheffali.

This superb song and and another song from Paraya Dhan(“Aao jhoome gaayein,milke dhoom machaayein”-asha bhosle,kishore )always lift my spirits.

Thank you nahm jee for the lyrics and a nice post.

Regards
Prakash
