“Bhai Bahan” (1950) was produced by Krishna M and directed by Ram Daryani. The movie had Geeta Bali, Nirupa Roy, K N Singh, Prem Adeeb, Bharat Bhushan, Gope, Jeewan, Kukku etc in it.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is a song from the movie which is sung by Talat Mehmood. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shyam Sundar

Only the audio of this song is available and it is not known how and on whom this song is picturised. It is clear from the lyrics that it is a bidaai song, and that too one of the oldest bidaai songs in Hindi movies, as far as I can tell.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyric of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.


Song-Ban thhan ke chali (Bhai Bahan)(1950) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-Shyam Sundar

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

bann thhann ke chali ee
saj dhaj ke chali ee
raani karke haar singaar
dekho chali piya ke dwaar
dekho chali piya ke dwaar
bann thhann ke chali

jinhone naazon se paala thaa
unse juda hai hona aa
jinhone naazon se paala thaa
unse juda hai hona
ek aankh mein hansi bhari hai
ek aankh mein rona
ek aankh mein hansi bhari hai
ek aankh mein rona
hum aake nainon mein aen aen
neer bhaar aaya
doli uthaayen kahaar
dekho chali piya ke dwaar
dekho chali piya ke dwaar
bann thhann ke chali ee
saj dhaj ke chali ee
raani karke haar singaar
dekho chali piya ke dwaar
dekho chali piya ke dwaar
bann thhann ke chali

ab kya vaada baabul raaja aa aa aa aaa
ab kya vaada baabul raaja
ladki hui paraayi
doli ke sang chal diye dulha
peechhe baap aur bhaai
chali naya ek des basaane ae ae ae
chali naya ek des basaane ae ae ae
soona kar gharbaar
dekho chali piya ke dwaar
dekho chali piya ke dwaar
bann thhann ke chali
saj dhaj ke chali ee
raani karke haar singaar
dekho chali piya ke dwaar
dekho chali piya ke dwaar
bann thhann ke chali

Thanks Nitinji and Atulji for this post. A rare gem of bidaai song genre.

As per my knowledge Talat Mehmood was the first and the only singer of his generation who never tried to copy first generation singers like Sehgal Saab, Pankaj Millick, KC Dey Karan Diwan etc while all singers of that time whether Rafi, Mukesh, Manna Dey, Kishore or GM Durrani, CH Atma etc all of them did so. Also Lataji and Ashaji and Geetaji and Suraiyyaji also copied Noorjahan, Shamshad Begum, Amirbai Karnataki, Johtabai Ambalewlai, Rajkumariji etc.

Talat Mehmood always used single style of singing for all songs and all situations and for all characters which leads to shorten his professional career in HFM. With the emergence of Rafi Saab with rendering in different voices for different Characters and Situations Talat Saab era declined whereas he was the topmost singer during 1951 to 1955. BTW he later continued his art through NFS and Private Albums and concerts.

Dear Nitishji:

In the second stanza, should it be “hum aake nainon mein” or “amma ke nainon main”?
