Inhi logon ne le leenha dupatta mera

The song “Inhi logon ne le leenha dupatta mora” is associated by most music lovers with “Paakeezaah”(1972) which was sung by Lata and composed by Ghulam Mohammad. But this song had first appeared three decades ago, viz in 1941 where this song was sung by Shamshad Begam under the music direction of Pt Govindram for “Himmat”(1941). This blog contains the “Paakeezah”(1972) version as well as the “Himmat”(1941) version of this song.

The song was used as Mujra song in both the movies.

Pt Govindram used the same song again in “Aabroo”(1943). But this time it was used as a light hearted get together song. In the picturisation, Yaakoob (I hope I have identified him correctly) does an impromptu cross dressing and sings this song to amuse his friends in his drawing room.

I am unable to identify the actors visible in the picturisation, which included a lady as well. This Hind Pictures, Bombay production directed by Nazeer had Sitara, Yakoob, Jagdeesh, Nazeer, Masood, Shakir, Vatsala Kumthekar, Laddan, Chanda Bai, Janardan Sharma etc in it. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors.

HFGK is silent about the lyricist and singer of this song. My guess is that this song is sung by Yakoob himself. I request our knowledgeable readers to help confirm/ refute my guess.

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

Unknown male voice

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

haan haan
ye maana hamne ke ae ae ae ae
husn ye khuda deta hai
per yeh andaaz tumhe kaun sikha deta hai

shikme e maadar se koi seekh ke aataa hi nahin
chaahne waala hi kambakht sikha deta hai
(sikha deta hai
bahut achche

inhi logo ne le leena dupattta mera
inhi logo ne le leena dupattta mera
inhin logo ne
inhin logo ne
inhin logo ne
inhin logo ne
inhin logo ne le leena dupattta mera


tumhaari kasam
Rashmi ko bhi maat kar rahe ho

mori na maano
mori na maano
arre ha mori na mano
arre ha mori na mano
bajajwa se poochho
jisne adhhaai gaz
jisne adhaai gaz deenha dupatta mera
inhi logo ne le leenha dupattta mera
inhi logo ne le leenha dupattta mera

mori na maaaano o
sainya se ae poochho
mori na maano
arre haan
mori na maano
arre haan
mori na maano
sainya se ae poochho
jisne odha ke
jisne odha ke mazaa leenha dupatta mera
jisne odha ke mazaa leenha dupatta
