The Voice of Mukesh #19
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Do Dil’ from 1947, turned out to be quite a bonanza for Mukesh. Thus far, the film 1945 ‘Pehli Nazar’ had been good, with four songs by him. In this film, Pt. Gobindram got Mukesh to sing as many as six songs. Three of these are solo, and three are duets – two with Suraiyyaa and one with Rajkumari. Two solos and two duets are already represented on this blog. With this post, I bring to this blog, the third remaining solo song by Mukesh, for your listening pleasure.

The lyrics are by DN Madhok. When it comes to songs of romantic nature, the episodes from the life of Lord Krishna are one of the favorite sources of inspiration for the poets. Even before the films came, in the classical and folk traditions of music, the treatment of the theme of love entailed evocation of the episodes of Rahda – Krishna theme. And when the talking films came, the subject of young romance depended heavily on this theme. There is a fairly large number of songs in Hindi films, based on this theme. And it is not just Hindi films. This theme has been a source of inspiration for poets in all languages of the sub continent. Similar songs appear in films in all Indian languages.

In this song, the young lover is calling out to his beloved, encouraging her to come for their rendezvous, making an excuse of fetching water. On a careful listen, one can realize that this is a pretty difficult song to compose and sing. The metre is not consistent. The melody is flowing, but still it varies from line to line. And yet, the overall effect is so beautiful. The credit goes to both the music director and the singer.

So listen to this rare melody, and enjoy.

(Note: There is one line in the second antaraa that I have not been able to clearly decipher. I request other readers to please help identify the correct words.)


Song-Le matki aa jaa Raadha ri (Do Dil)(1947) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Pt Govindram

Lyrics

le matki aa jaa raadha ri
le matki aa jaa raadha ri
ghar se isi bahaane
jo tan laage
so tan jaane
dooja kook na jaane
ho. . . ho ji

tu na aayee panghat pe
mohey yaad khatke haaye
tu na aayee panghat pe
mohey yaad khatke haaye
kahin bairan nanad tori
bhed hamaare jaan na jaaye
kahin bairan nanad tori
bhed hamaare jaan na jaaye
tum bin jiaraa baawraa
laage dagmagaane
ho. . . ho ji

ab tu hi bol
ab tu hi bol
kaun muraliya bajaaye
ab tu hi bol
kaun muraliya bajaaye
jahaan jahaan meri ungaliyaan jaayen
nikle haaye haaye
jahaan jahaan meri ungaliyaan jaayen
nikle haaye haaye
dheer bandhaa jaa
aa jaa
kis vidh (??)
ho. . . ho ji

le matki aa jaa raadha ri
le matki aa jaa raadha ri
ghar se isi bahaane
jo tan laage
so tan jaane
dooja kook na jaane
ho. . . ho ji

——————————————
ले मटकी आ जा राधा री
ले मटकी आ जा राधा री
घर से इसी बहाने
तो तन लागे
सो तन जाने
दूजा कूक न जाने
हो . . . हो जी

तू ना आए पनघट पे
मोहे याद खटके हाए
तू ना आए पनघट पे
मोहे याद खटके हाए
कहीं बैरन ननद तोरी
भेद हमारे जान न जाये
कहीं बैरन ननद तोरी
भेद हमारे जान न जाये
तुम बिन जियरा बावरा
लागे डगमगाने
हो . . . हो जी

अब तू ही बोल
अब तू ही बोल
कौन मुरलीया बजाए
अब तू ही बोल
कौन मुरलीया बजाए
जहां जहां मेरी उँगलियाँ जाएँ
निकले हाए हाए
जहां जहां मेरी उँगलियाँ जाएँ
निकले हाए हाए
धीर बंधा जा
आ जा
किस विध (??)
हो . . . हो जी

ले मटकी आ जा राधा री
ले मटकी आ जा राधा री
घर से इसी बहाने
तो तन लागे
सो तन जाने
दूजा कूक न जाने
हो . . . हो जी
