“Kasturi” (1954) was directed by Vrajendra gaur for Sargam Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Nimmi, Sajjan, Bipin Gupta, Anand Prasad, Nakul Mullick, Shammi, Alka, Samson, Amrit Rana, Indira, Helen, Radheshyam, P C Sinha etc in it.

Here is the fourth song from this movie. This song is sung by Pankaj Mullick. Vrajendra Gaur is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pankaj Mullick.

This song has the word “Kasturi” figuring in it and that makes it the theme cum title song of the movie. But still then,this song, after getting released on records was cancelled and the song was subsequently deleted from the movie as well.

This song with such history is superb to listen to. Its lyrics are difficult to decipher at places and I request our knowledgeable readers with keener ears to point out the missing/ incorrect words in the lyrics.

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

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

apni preet ko dhoond raha hoon oon oon
duniya ke aangan mein
duniya ke aangan mein
jaise hiran bechain bhatakta aa aa aa
jaise hiran bechain bhatakta
phirta aa hai
phirta hai bann bann mein aen aen
duniya ke aangan mein

arre baawre ae ae ae
ae ae
kab samjhega
mehki kahaan kasturi ee
dil mein base hain
phir bhi tu pehchaan na paaya dil ko
aise ?? raat ko
raat na jaane din ko
ye nazdeeki bani huyi hai kyun oon
kyun jeewan mein doori ee
mehki kahaan kasturi

arre baawre ae ae
ae ae ae
kab samjhega
mehki kahaan kasturi ee
kya na milega aa aa
aa aa
kya na milega
man chaaha haq(?)
chaahe jitna chaahe
kya duniya mein aen mil na sakegi
hum donon ki raahen
bheegi rahen nigaahen
kab tak
aahen aen aen
aahen bhare majboori
majboor kahaan tak ??
arre baawre ae ae
ae ae ae
ae ae
kab samjhega aa
mehki kahaan kasturi
ee ee
ee ee

Sung in typical Pankajda style. Pity that this song was deleted from the film. I didn’t find anything “objectionable” in the song.


One thing unusual about this song is that it is one continuous song. It is a coup for Pankaj-da.


Revisited this site after about one and a half years to hear Pankajda singing this song in his magnificent and inimitable style. Today Radio Ceylon played this song in Pankajda’s memory since it happens to be his death anniversary.

I was surprised to find no comments by our learned members other than my two insubstantial comments.

Sometimes we would like to hear some songs again after a while. At that time we might post some comments. Is there a place where we can do this?
