Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Banno ke haath bhari mehandi

Posted on: September 17, 2013


“Chaandni Chowk” (1954) was a Hira Films Company production. It was directed by B R Chopra. The movie had Shekhar, Meena Kumari, Sunder, Kumar, Jeevan, Achla Sachdev, Yashodhara Katju etc in it.

Ten songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. With so many songs discussed, it is natural to assume that we are on our way to cover all the songs from this movie, which seems to be one of our missions in the blog these days. 🙂

While majority of songs from most movies are available on YT, most movies have one or two songs that are so rare that they are just not available and most people have only read about them in entries like HFGK or myswar.

“Chaandni Chowk” (1954) has one such rare song. The entry for this song reads “Banno Ke Haath Bhari Mehandi”. The list of singers immediately arouse one’s curiosity. Lata, Meena and Usha Mangeshkar are the singers of this song. So it is one of those rare songs where three Mangeshkar singers sing together. This song is rarer still because one of these sisters in Meena, who sang the least number of songs among the four singers.

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

Here is this rare song from “Chaandni Chowk” (1954) which was not available on YT till now. Only the audio of this song is available and so it is difficult to comment about the picturisation of this song. It sounds like a wedding song, that is all we can be certain about. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


song-Banno ke haath bhari mehndi(Chaandni Chowk)(1954) Singers-Lata, Meena Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

banno ke haath bhari mehndi
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de
haan haan
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de
banno ke haath bhari mehndi
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de
haan haan
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de

sar pe baandhe phoolon ka sehra
sar pe baandhe phoolon ka sehra
ghode pe aaye sawaar
ghode pe aaye sawaar
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de
haan haan
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de

man mein chatke armaan ki kaliyaan
man mein chatke armaan ki kaliyaan
nainon se jhaanke bahaar
nainon se jhaanke bahaar
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de
haan haan
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de

banno ke haath bhari mehndi
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de

dil hi le gaye
is din ki khaatir
dil hi le gaye
is din ki khaatir
bachpan se thha intezaar
bachpan se thha intezaar
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de
haan haan
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de

banno ke haath bhari mehndi
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de
haan haan
ghoonghat koi aa ke utthha de

That is a rare song indeed to hear these 3 sisters sing together. So Atul Ji, how many more songs are left in this movie to be discussed here? :).

Thank you Nitin Ji, this is a better audio.

Nitinji’s version plays at a slower speed. Why the variation?
