“Gajre” (1948) was an Allied Arts Production movie. It was directed by R D Mathur. The movie had Motilal, Suraiya, Agha, Nihal, Sangeeta, Geeta Nizami, Sankatha Prasad, Murad etc in it.

Seven songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the eighth song from the movie.

This song is a baaraat song sung from the point of view of the bride whose “doli” is being carried as part of the returning “baaraat”.

Nowadays it is difficult to imagine how “baaraat” used to depart after weddings in India. Nowadays the groom and bride depart on a flower bedecked car or so, and they reach their destination soon enough. Moreover the modern day bride is not as shy and she would not hesitate to call for water if she is thirsty. But think of the situation of just two generations ago (till 1970s). The groom would be seated on a bullock cart or horse or whatever, while the bride would be seated in a “doli” which would be carried by four kahaars who would walk on foot. Assumimg that the baaraat had to go twenty miles (quite a feasible situation), then the baaraat would reach its destination after twelve hours or so. Just imagine the situation of the bride for those twelve hours or so because she would be a total stranger to all, including her husband, who in any case would be moving ahead in the “baaraat”.

The song is sung by an unknown female voice, Lata and chorus. Gopal Singh Nepali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song as well as on the identity of the unknown female singer.
PS-Mr Bharat Upadhyay, our knowledgeable reader and contributor informs that the unknown female voice belons to Ira Nagrath, the wife of music director Roshan. (Grandmother of Hrithk Roshan for the uninitiated).

Lyrics

chali dulhan baaraatiyon ke peechhe peechhe
re chali dulhan baaraatiyon ke peechhe peechhe

aankhen bichaaye ke
sasuraal bulaaye re
aankhen bichaaye ke
sasuraal bulaaye re
palken jhukaaye ke gori chali jaaye re
palken jhukaaye ke gori chali jaaye re
lekin naihar ka
lekin naihar ka pyaar us’se peechhe chhoote

re chali dulhan baaraatiyon ke peechhe peechhe
re chali dulhan baaraatiyon ke peechhe peechhe

raste mein pyaas lage
paani na maange
raste mein pyaas lage
paani na maange
dulha to chala jaaye aage hi aage
dulha to chala jaaye aage hi aage
?? ghoonghat
gori ghoonghat ?? aayi neeche neeche

re chali dulhan baaraatiyon ke peechhe peechhe
re chali dulhan baaraatiyon ke peechhe peechhe

saajan mile to ?? gayin sakhiyaan
aan aan aan
saajan mile to ?? gayin sakhiyaan
doli chali to bhar aayin ankhiyaan
aan aan aan
doli chali to bhar aayin ankhiyaan
phir bhi ban thhan ke soche
piya kaise reejhe
phir bhi ban thhan ke
phir bhi ban thhan ke soche
piya kaise reejhe
re chali dulhan baaraatiyon ke peechhe peechhe
re chali dulhan baaraatiyon ke peechhe peechhe

bachpan beeta hai jahaan
use kaise bhoolna
kaise bhoolna
reh reh ke yaad aaye
baaghon mein jhoolna
aaa aaa aaa
reh reh ke yaad aaye
baaghon mein jhoolna
le ke doli kahaar chale oonche oonche
le ke doli
le ke doli kahaar chale oonche oonche
re chali dulhan baaraatiyon ke peechhe peechhe
re chali dulhan baaraatiyon ke peechhe peechhe
