“Do Bhai” (1947) was directed by Munshi Dil for Filmistan. The movie had Kamini Kaushal, Ulhas, Rajan Haksar, Paro, Rajendra Singh, Nayampalli, Abdul Mazid, Kanta Kumari, Vikram Kapoor, Baby Tara, Radha, Afghan Sandow, Tiwari etc in it.

Seven songs (out of 9) from this movie have been discussed in the past. This movie is known for Geeta Dutt’s debut song “Mera Sundar sapna beet gaya”. She had sung six songs in it and Rafi had sung one song. But this movie had a few songs sung by oldtimers as well. K S Ragi and G M Durrani had sung one song each. Paro Devi was the second most prolific singer in the movie after Geeta Dutt. She sang two songs in the movie.

Here is a song sung by Paro Devi. Going by the title of the song I thought that I was familiar with the song, but I was wrong. The songs of similar mukhdas that I was familiar with were Ambuwa pe koyal boley (Moorti)(1945) sung by Khursheed Bano and Ambuwaa ki daari boley kaari koyaliyaa (NFS)(1960) sung by Asha Bhonsle.

I heard this song for the first time only just now. What a remarkable song. Today appears to be the day when I am discovering the singing prowess of Paro Devi. It is the second Paro devi gem that I have come across today.

Here is this superb song which is written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. Music is composed by S D Burman.

The song ends with a flourish (doley doley doley re…) which reminds you of Kishore Kumar. I recall Kishore Kumar copying this style of singing in one of his comedy songs, but I am unable to recall which song that is.

What a lovely song. listening to this song is bound to make your day.


Song-Ambuwaa ki daali pe koyal boley (Do Bhai)(1947) Singer-Paro Devi, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

ambuwa ki daali pe
koyal boley
koyal boley re
koyal boley
prem ki nadi mein
man ki naiyya
dagmag doley re
dagmag doley
ambuwa ki daali pe
koyal boley
koyal boley re
koyal boley

kisi ne dil ko mere
kya kar diya
kya kar diya
haay
kya kar diya
kisi ne
kisi ne
kisi ne dil ko mere
kya kar diya
kya kar diya
haay
kya kar diya

man ka papeeha boley piya piya
piya piya
haay piya piya
kisi ke jaal mein phans gaye re
nainon ke panchhi boley boley
ambuwa ki daali pe
koyal boley
koyal boley re
koyal boley

praanon mein mere lagi prem ki aag re
prem ki aag re
prem ki aag
das gaye
das gaye
das gaye
nainon ke naag re
nainon ke naag re
nainon ke naag
preet unse badhtee jaaye
hauley hauley
hauley hauley re
hauley hauley
ambuwa ki daali pe
koyal boley
koyal boley re
koyal boley

sooni atariya ka deepak roye
deepak roye re
deepak roye
main to jaagoon
meri kismat soye
kismat soye soye
kismat soye
aake pardes piya ghoonghat khole
ghoonghat khole re
ghoonghat khole
ho
ambuwa ki daali pe
koyal boley
koyal boley re
koyal boley
prem ki nadi mein
man ki naiyya
dagmag doley re
dagmag doley re naiyya
doley doley doley re

When I read the title of the song I was reminded of https://atulsongaday.me/2010/05/03/ambuaa-ki-daari-pe-bole-re-koyaliyaa/

Arun ji

I do have a doubt about singer Paro Devi(because in the video links of both songs posted in the blog, Actress Paro Devi`s photographs are included, that`s why my doubt about the 2 persons)whether she is the same Paro Devi, who in movies like Mehboob Ki mehandi,Mera Gaaon Mera desh,Shrafat(dharmendra) and in many movies of early seventies Paro->this actress appeared as madam of kotha, where mujra takes place.Whether the singer and the actress PARO DEVI are one and the same ???

If you have the information please ……

Prakash

PC,
They are the same person. She was an actress(87 movies and lip synch 10 songs) and a as singer sang 40 songs in 12 movies.
She was courtesan from Meerut; amongst those who frequented her kotha were poets like Josh Malihabadi and Sagar Nizami; debuted in Shikari-1946.
Despite having a good voice, music directors rarely used her voice for playback singing. Many of her songs onscreen were sung by Shamshad Begum. However, she did sing quite a few songs in films and one of the most famous one was diwana gaya daaman se lipat from Karwat and ek rog laga baithi mai karke (1949), music by Hansraj Behl. yet to be posted.
Paro also produced Nakhare (1951) under the banner of Paro pictures.
She was beautiful but later looked quite hideous
