Today (26 april 2014) is the death aniversary of Shankar Singh Raghuvanshi (15 October 1922 – 26 April 1987), better known as Shankar of the Shankar Jaikishan music director duo.

When I sought to discuss a song on the occasion and went through the list of Shankar Jaikishan songs already covered, I realised that all the songs of their first fifteen movies have already been covered in the blog. In fact, a mind boggling 74 movies with Shankar Jaikishan’s music in them have already been fully covered as far as their songs are concerned.

The earliest Shankar Jaikishan movie whose songs are not fully covered in the blog is “Baadshah” (1954). Three songs from this lesser known movie has been discussed in the past. This movie was directed by Amiya Chaudhary for Mars and Movies production. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Usha Kiran, Mala Sinha, Hari Shivdasani, K. N. Singh, Ulhas, Agha, Achla Sachdev etc in it.

The movie may have been forgotten, but what superb song this movie had !

The songs of this movie used to be quite rare and I recall that the first song of this movie to be discussed in the blog was on the request of a reader and the song then had to be uploaded on YT by me. The songs of “Baadshah” (1954) have become more freely available since those days.

Here is the fourth song from this movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

This song is a forgotten gem indeed !


Song-Tum aankhen churaao to kya (Baashah)(1954) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan


janam maran ke saath ko
kaise toda jaaye
tinka ho to tod doon
par pyaar na toda jaaye

tum aankhen churaao to kya
tum aankhen churaao to kya
in aankhon ko tumse pyaar hai
tum baaten banaao to kya
tum baaten banaao to kya
ye dil hi jo tumpe nisaar hai
tum aankhen churaao to kya

dard uthha to dil bhar aaya
aaya lab par naam tumhaara
aaya lab par naam
tumko chaahe chhen le duniya
yaad se hamko kaam tumhaari
yaad se hamko kaam aaa
tum khushiyaan manaao to kya
tum khushiyaan manaao to kya
mera ujda hua sansaar hai
tum aankhen churaao to kya
tum aankhen churaao to kya
tum aankhen churaao to kya

kehte kehte dil ka fasaana
doob chali fariyaad ho o o
doob chali fariyaad
jaise hum barbaad huye hain
koi na ho barbaad jahaan mein
koi na ho barbaad aad
tum hanske mitaao to kya
tum hanske mitaao to kya
dil tumhaari nazar ka shikaar hai
tum aankhen churaao to kya
in aankhon ko tumse pyaar hai
tum aankhen churaao to kya
tum aankhen churaao to kya
