So meri raani

Posted on: February 19, 2013


“Pehli Raat” (1959) was a Pushpa Pictures Production. It was produced by A A Nadiadwala and directed by P L Santoshi. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Nimmi, Rehman, Nanda, Sudesh Kumar,Sheela Kashimiri, Raj Prakash, Manorama, Jeevan, Amir Bai Karnataki, Johny Walker, Lalita Pawar, Munshi Munaqa, Adeeb, Daraz,Ratna,Maqbool, Paro etc in it.

Here is a lullaby song from this movie. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. It is picturised on Nimmi who sings this lullaby to a tiny tot (whom I am unable to identify).

The lyrics of this song are funny that makes it easy for tiny kids (as well as those young at heart) to be suitably amused by this tale that speak of a king with golden harvest, and a cat that is marrying a lions granddaughter with mice serving as part of his baaraat,and that of an ant who brings and elephant down by pulling his leg.

Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

so meri raani
so meri raani
tujhko sunaaoon
ek raajaa ki kahaani
so meri raani
so meri raani
tujhko sunaaoon
ek raajaa ki kahaani

raajaa ke khet mein thaa
sone kaa dhaan
rakhwaali karne gayaa
kalloo kisaan
chidiyon ne chhugg liyaa
raajaa kaa dhaan
raajaa ne kaat liyaa
kalloo ka kaan
chidiyaa boli chhoon
cheenthaa bola hooon
so meri raani
so meri raani
tujhko sunaaoon
ek raajaa ki kahaani
so meri raani
aaaa aaa

tujhko sunaaoon
ek raajaa ki kahaani

billaa byaahan ko chalaa

choohey baraat chaley baandh ke dhoti
kissi ki dum lambi thhi
kissi ki chhoti
sher ke ghar pakti thi
motti si roti
khoob khaayee roti toh

billi boli meeown
so meri raani
so meri raani
tujhko sunaaoon
ek raajaa ki kahaani
so meri raani

tujhko sunaaoon
ek raajaa ki kahaani

apnon kaa aaj koyee

maainaa chhupchaap takey
kauwwaa bole kaanv
mendhak bandook liye
ghoome saaraa gaaon

chyunti ne kheench liyaa
haathi kaa paanv
haathi giraa dhamm
kahaani khathm
(laughing sound)
so meri raani so meri raani
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm

Maan gaye Prakashchandra. Achha khoda. I have seen this movie. Nimmi is in a deglamorized role of an aggrieved old lady.
