“Village Girl” (1945) was directed by K Amarnath for Ramnik Production. The movie had Noor Jehan, M.Nazir, Jagadish Sethi, Durga Khote, Rama Shukul, Anant Marathe, Rajkumari Shukla, Rajkumari Kapoor, Bikram Kapoor, F.M.Khan etc. in it.
Here is thoe story of this movie as narrated by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopeadia:

The story was that Jaani (M.Nazir) is a vagabond and his mother(Durga Khote) suffers due to his misdeeds. Once he goes to neighbouring village and meets Bibbo(Noor Jehan). They fall in love. One Hari(Jagdish Sethi) is also loving her. He gives a loan to her father. Jaani wants to reform and starts doing kheti, but Hari gets him arrested for a theft and murder. Jaani is freed after Bibbo helps to find the murderer. Jaani goes and joins Army. When he comes back Bibbo is about to marry Hari. It is then proved that Hari has impregnated another girl and then everything is fine with Bibbo Marrying Jaani.

The film was so successful that after migrating to Pakistan, M.Nazir remade the film in Punjabi titled ” Pherey ” in 1949. This too was successful and became the first Silver jubilee film of Pakistan.

Six songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the seventh song from the movie. HFGK mentions this song as a group song. I can detect at least two main female voices in this song, and one of these voices in Amirbai Karnataki’s. Wali Sahab is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shyam Sundar.

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