Ek se badhkar ek

Just discovered that today is Runa Laila the Bangladeshi singers’ 61st birthday. For this I have to thank Facebook which had a YouTube link to 10 of Runa Laila’s Indian songs (bollywood to be exact). The list had two songs from Gharonda which is already with us on Atul.

Then I remembered a hugely popular song of the 1976 movie “Ek Se Badhkar Ek”. It was hatke for those times as normally we would have Asha Bhonsle giving play back for Helen. But this was in Runa Laila’s voice. Kalyanji- Anandji were the music directors for the movie and Verma Malik the lyricist.

The movie itself was a typical Brij movie with Ashok Kumar and Raj Kumar playing the main characters. And the hero Navin Nischol playing second fiddle. The story was also usual….. Ashok Kumar gets separated from his family or brother Raj Kumar. Anwar Hussain leads a gang that is after some precious stones etc. Sharmila Tagore was an eye candy etc etc etc.

So here is wishing Runa Laila a Very Happy Birthday.


Song-Ek se badh kar ek (Ek Se Badhkar Ek)(1976) Singer-Runa Laila, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

laa laa laa aa
laa laa laa
aa
laa laa laa aa
laa laa laa
aa

ek se badhkar ek,
ek se badhkar ek
main laayi hoon tohfe anek
zulfon ki shaam laayi
arre dil tere naam laayi
o zulfon ki shaam laayi,
dil tere naam laayi
mazaa aayegaa mulaaqaat kaa
kyaa program hai aaj raat kaa?
ek se badhakar ek
main laayi hoon tohfe anek

hey
ek muhabbat dooji jawaani
teejaa behtaa paani
roke se nahin rukte teenon,
sun le dilbar jaani
ek muhabbat dooji jawaani
teejaa behtaa paani
roke se nahin rukte teenon,
sun le dilbar jaani
waqt hai soch le
jaan le dekh le
mazaa aaegaa mulaaqaat kaa
ae
kyaa program hai aaj raat kaa?
ek se badhkar ek
main layi hoon tohfe anek
dekh
ek se badhkar ek
main layi hoon tohfe anek

hey
main hoon sholaa,
main hoon shabnam,
main hoon mast bahaar
chun le jo bhi marzi teri,
mere rang hazaar
ho main hoon sholaa,
main hoon shabnam, main hoon mast bahaar
chun le jo bhi marzi teri,
mere rang hazaar
maan le baat ko,
thaam le haath ko
mazaa aayegaa mulaaqaat kaa
ee,
kyaa program hai aaj raat kaa?
