“Roopkumari” (1956) was directed by Manibhai Vyas for Chitra Bharti Productions. The movie had Mahipal, Roopmala, Shakila, Maruti, Chandrashekhar, Tiwari etc in it.

Here is a lovely song from this B grade obscure movie. The song is sung by Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey. B D Mishra is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Song-Wo dekho udhar chaand nikla gagan mein(Roopkumari)(1956) Singers-Geeta Dutt, Manna Dey, Lyrics-B D Mishra, MD-S N Tripathi

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Wo dekho udhar chaand nikla gagan mein
idhar aa gayi chaandni muskuraati
bahaaron ki rangeen ye muskuraahat
dilon mein umangon ki duniya basaati
wo dekho udhar chaand

na jaane nashaa aaj kyun chha raha hai
ye har baat par pyaar kyun aa raha hai
ye har baat par pyaar kyun aa raha hai

na apni khabar hai na sudh hai kisi ki
na apni khabar hai na sudh hai kisi ki
yehi bekhudi dil se dil ko milaati
wo dekho udhar chaand

nayi aas ke phool khilne lage hain
ke armaan dil mein machalne lage hain
ke armaan dil mein machalne lage hain

udhar koi karta hai
hans ke ishaare
udhar koi karta hai
hans ke ishaare
idhar laaj ghoonghat mein aankhen chhupaati
wo dekho udhar chaand

A beautiful song. Unfortunately, it did not become popular. After 5 years, S N Tripathi used the same tune and the orchestration for one of the songs from ‘Jaadoo Nagri (1961) sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This song which is already covered in the blog become popular – at least on Vividh Bharati. The song is

You rae correct S.K.,I would like to ADD that there is one more song on
same tune…Ye tan man vatan par nichhavar karenge hum gandhi ke bete jawahar banenge,FROM film-KUNWARI -1966- SN TRIPATHI,SHAILENDRA sung by krishna kalle and chouras.ALL THREE SONGS HAVE SAME TUNE.
