Gori. . . Tu Ne Mera Dil Churaaya Hai

Posted on: February 3, 2015

So, yesterday afternoon we receive this message from Peevesie’s Mom.  There is a Chitalkar song.  A friend of hers is looking for it.  As it was revealed in later part of the thread, this friend had heard this song on the ‘Bhoole Bisre Geet’ program on Radio Ceylon (now called the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation).  When he switched on the radio, the song had already started so he missed the introductory information, like film name and artist etc.  Singer he could recognize from the voice.  It is Chitalkar (C Ramchandra).

Now the one line that was communicated by this friend to Peevesie’s Mom, and in turn, by Peevesie’s Mom to us was – “Kaun ho tum mujhe giraya hain..o goriya”.  So we started the hunt.  Of course searching for ‘Kaun Ho Tum’ and ‘C Ramchandra’ immediately brought up the Mahendra Kapoor song from film ‘Stree’ (1961) – “Kaun Ho Tum Kaun Ho Kaun Ho”.  And we were definitely not looking for this song.  So based on the little information we had, we drew a blank.  There is no song sung by Chitalkar in Hindi films that starts with “Kaun Ho Tum. . .”.

So I wrote back to Peevesie’s Mom, to confirm whether this line is part of the ‘mukhdaa’ or is it one of the lines inside the ‘antaraas’.  The communication was becoming international by now.  Khyati Behn sent a message from Los Angeles writing about fishing, and how to let the big fishes take on the difficult hunts and letting the small fishes to be lazy, and swim in the schools.  😉  That was last night (India time.)

Then today morning, Arun ji wrote back, saying that he had tried too, without success.  And also specifically clarified that the Geet Kosh can help with such searches, but the words should be in the ‘mukhdaa’ of the song.  If the words are not in the ‘mukhdaa’ then the Geet Kosh will not be of any help.

Then Atul ji’s email came, with the suggestion that we assign some home work.  There are 82 songs sung by Chitalkar on the blog.  Well, yes, the number surprised me too.  Of all the artists who are known more for being music directors, he is the only one with such a large number of songs sung, and as the numbers show, very close to getting a century of songs sung by him, on this blog very soon.  But I digress.  Atul ji’s home work assignment was to study the lyrics of these 82 songs, and check if this line has appeared in any song posted.  He was actually very “helpful” to provide the link by which we can go to the list of these 82 songs on the blog.

The suggestion seems to quieten down the excitement of the hunt.  Quite characteristically, no further responses came on this email thread.  Till about four hours later.  We got another email from Peevesie’s Mom, who had communicated with her friend once again, and she reconfirmed to all of us that the friend was very sure this line is part of the mukhda.

Having put down a good lunch by this time, I was already on the lookout again.  Of course, I also sidestepped the home work assignment from Atul ji, and started analyzing the problem.  By the time the email from Peevesie’s Mom landed confirming that the given clue is definitely part of the mukhda, I was now convinced otherwise – that it is not.  Else it would have been listed in GK, fully or partly.  And I was already poring over the Geet Kosh pages, looking for songs sung by Chitalkar, and was trying to see if any connection could be made with the song title listed in GK, and the clue line provided.  However, not making much headway.

Then another thing struck me.  I was all the time concentrating on the decade of 1950s, i.e. volume 3 of GK.  Just on hunch, I kept it aside and picked up volume 4.  And quite contrary to my impressions, not only that there are films all the way up to 1971 for which C Ram has given the music direction, but there is a fairly good number of songs he has sung in this decade, for his own music and for other music directors.  E.g. he has sung a duet with Kishore Kumar (in film ‘Daal Mein Kaala’ (1964); not yet posted on blog).  Ah, but I digress again.

As I scanned the pages, I hit the first solo song of this decade, as listed in the GK.  The year – 1965; the film – ‘Hum Deewaane’.  The mukhdaa of the song – “Gori Tu Ne Mera Dil Churaaya Hai”.  My page-flipping finger paused, the mind looked at the title line of this song, and then read the clue line provided, once again.  I got a feeling of a tiny LED starting to glow at the end of the tunnel.  The two lines rhymed – “Gori Tu Ne Mera Dil Churaaya Hai” and “Kaun Ho Tum Mujhe Giraaya Hai. . . O Goriya”.  And the word ‘Gori’ in the beginning of the title line, was kind of similar to what was provided as the closing word ‘Goriya’ of the clue line.  The LED now started blinking on top of my head.  And I had this feeling I had reached the end of the hunt.

But to cofirm, I had to listen to this song.  I spent another half hour or so, trying to search this song in my collection.  Checked the film lists, the lists by year, set of songs by C Ram, searched for Anand Bakshi.  I realized this song was not in my collection.  So finally, gave a call to my collector friend, Zafar Bhai and explained the situation.  By now, he is quite familiar with such ‘out of the blue’ emergency requests from me. So yes, he has the records of this film, and yes, this song is in his collection.

And so, I said please to him five times and requested him to digitize and send me by email.  After fifteen or twenty minutes, the bulky email arrived.  I immediately copied it into the hard disk, and played the song.  The song went on to play, and as it progressed further, my heart started to sink.  All my enthusiasm evaporated, well almost.  Because the song was nearing the end and nowhere was the clue line appearing.  Not as the second line in the mukhdaa, not in the first antaraa.  The second antaraa was also coming to close.  Still no “Kaun Ho Tum. . .”.

Till the last line of the second antaraa played.  And then, it was WHOOSH!!! there it is.  Goodness, Peevesie’s Mom ji, this clue line is the very last line of the second antaraa.  I can’t begin to imagine at what point did your friend started listening to this song, and how did this clue line became the mukhda.  And one very important correction.  The line does not start with ‘Kaun Ho’, but the words are ‘Ho Na Ho’.  As you will listen, it becomes clearer.

However, very elated and satisfied, an afternoon that luckily ended in success.

Some details about the film and the song.  The film is produced under the banner of Young India Entertainer, and is directed by Bhagwan.  The cast of actors includes Mumtaz, Chandrashekhar, Bhagwan, Helen, Iftikhar, Anwar, Agha, Maruti, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Prem Sagar, Rajan Kapoor, and Kanchanmala etc.  The 8 songs of this film are written by Anand Bakshi.  And the music is by Anna Sahab – well, that is the name used by C Ram for this film.  The song is a drunkard song, and clue line now makes sense, in the context – “Kaun Ho Tum Mujhe Giraaya Hai”.

So, I will close the story of the hunt and let you hear the song.  Peevesie’s Mom ji, please message your friend with the links, and with greetings from me.  🙂
Listen and enjoy.

PS: Thanks Atul ji, for the added bonus of the video clip of the song, and even more importantly, the third antaraa of the song.  Now it so makes it that the clue line is actually the last line of the THIRD antaraa, and not even the second one.  🙂
And added information about on screen presence – the song is performed by Bhagwan himself.  Chadrashekar, obviously an annoyed and concerned friend is also present in the clip.  Other people that I can identify are Mirajkar, the tall thin gentleman in South Indian dress, and the police constable who appears near the end of the clip – he is  Darshan Arora – thanks Prakash ji for the correct identification.  Also, the lady in the scarf is Teresa (wife of Oscar Unger).  Again, thanks to Prakash ji and Greta Memsaab for identification and confirmation.  Request readers and friends to help identify other actors who make brief cameo appearances in this song.

PPS: Lyrics are updated.

gori. . .
tu ne mera dil churaaya hai
ha ha ha ha haaaa
gori
tu ne mera dil churaaya hai

yaad hai tujhko kal tu
mere saath thi

tere lab pe waqt e rukhsat
ye baat thi
bhool gayi naa
aaj phir us jageh pe
mulaqaat thi
mulaqaat thi
mulaqaat thi
tu ne kyon
apna waada bhulaaya hai
ha haaaaaaa. . .  bhoolti ho na
gori
tu ne mera dil churaaya hai
ha ha ha ha haaaa

bhool baitha hoon main
waqt ke khel mein
samjhe bhaaio. . .
aapse main mila tha
kabhi rail mein
ya hui thi mulaqaat
ek jail mein
ek jail mein
ek jail mein
kahin ye kya
aapko yaad aaya hai
nahin aayega
gori
tu ne mera dil churaaya hai
ha ha ha ha haaaa

arrey re re he he
waah waah

ek to ye samaa bhi gulaabi nahin
doosre hai kasam main sharaabi nahin
ha haaaaaaa
aur raaste mein bhi koi
kharaabi nahin
kharaabi nahin
kharaabi nahin
ho na ho
tumne mujhko giraaya hai
aaaiiyn
gori
tu ne mera dil churaaya hai

ha ha ha ha ha
aa haa haa

गोरी॰ ॰ ॰
तूने मेरा दिल चुराया है
हा हा हा हा हा॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ
गोरी
तूने मेरा दिल चुराया है

याद है तुझको
कल तू मेरे साथ थी
तेरे लब पे वक़्त ए रुखसत
ये बात थी
भूल गई ना
आज फिर उस जगह पे
मुलाक़ात थी
मुलाक़ात थी
मुलाक़ात थी
तूने क्यों
अपना वादा भुलाया है
हा हा॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ॰ ॰ ॰  भूलती हो ना
गोरी
तूने मेरा दिल चुराया है
हा हा हा हा हा॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ

भूल बैठा हूँ मैं
वक़्त के खेल में
समझे भाइयो॰ ॰ ॰
आपसे मैं मिला था
कभी रेल में
या हुई थी मुलाक़ात
एक जेल में
एक जेल में
एक जेल में
कहीं ये क्या
आपको याद आया है
नहीं आएगा
गोरी
तूने मेरा दिल चुराया है
हा हा हा हा हा॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ

अर्रे रे रे हे हे
वाह वाह

एक तो ये समा भी गुलाबी नहीं
दूसरे है कसम मैं शराबी नहीं
हा हा॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ
और रास्ते में भी कोई
खराबी नहीं
खराबी नहीं
खराबी नहीं
हो ना हो
तुमने मुझको गिराया है
आईय्न
गोरी
तूने मेरा दिल चुराया है

हा हा हा हा हा
आ हा हा

The clues were mostly wrong. The words were wrong- there was no “Kaun ho tum” in the lyrics. Location of the words were wrong, The words were towards the fag end of the song rather than in the mukhda.

I wonder how the friend of Peevesie’s mom got the singer right. 🙂 We would have understood if he would have got even the singer wrong. 😉

Despite giving misleading clues, this song was discovered. But then Sudhir jee spent his time searching for this song which was originally planned to be spent on writing his next episode of Mumbai gangout. 🙂

I am happy that the song was located within 24 hours, or else Sudhir jee would have spend sleepless nights thinking about this song.

The next time when someone listens to a song in SLBC, ask him/her the date when this song was broadcast. This will save time because we have SLBC enthusiasts who upload these broadcasts on YT daily with full details.

Right. Instead of fiddling with knob of radio set just go to youtube.com and get your fix daily as it is uploaded immediately thereafter maybe by 10 am.

Atul ji,
Thanks for the added bonus of the video clip of the song, and even more importantly, the third antaraa of the song. Now it so makes it that the clue line is actually the last line of the THIRD antaraa, and not even the second one. 🙂 🙂

And added information about on screen presence – the song is performed by Bhagwan himself. Chadrashekar, obviously an annoyed and concerned friend is also present in the clip. Other people that I can identify are Mirajkar, the tall thin gentleman in South Indian dress, and the police constable who appears near the end of the clip – he is one of the junior artists, and I know his name only as Sehgal. Request readers and friends to help identify other actors who make brief cameo appearances in this song.

Sudhirbhai,
Thanks for not disappointing me. The idea of making “younger one” 😉 work was solely to keep him HEALTHY. Nowadays young ones are more concerned and hence focused on their physical health but then it’s elder’s duty to give them more mental exercise to keep their mind sharp. 😆
Ab itni door hoon to itna to kar hi sakti hoon na bhai ke liye! 🙂

Actually after reading Peevesie’s Momji’s email and then responding of me being a small fish in a pond, I also started my homework on the net. Could go through few songs of Chitalkarji’s but then caught up with son’s homework and then his other activity. Raat ko nischinta se so gayi, pata tha ki subah mein natija to milne waala hai aapse. 🙂
Kindly say thanks to Zafar Bhai for helping us out. Looks like you have saved his number with a code 911. 🙂

THANKS FOR SOLVING THE MYSTERY. CLAP CLAP CLAP…

Love and regards
Khyati

Sudhir ji,

Once again you have hit a jackpot-not by luck,but using common sense and efforts. In the past also you have achieved this magic for AK ji and few others. So we know where to go when a song is untraceable with little /no clues. For you a tiny thread is also enough. Thanks a lot for saving the Team’s izzat. A dictionary of appreciation adjectives is awarded to you on this occasion.

The first comment from Naresh ji,on the top,truly represents the feelings of many readers for you.

Really I marvel at the patience, persistence and perseverance of Sudhir ji and all other ASAD stalwarts.
Amazing, to what lengths you people can go? (Actually, it may be more prudent to wonder) Or not go?
Truly commendable, all you Madames/Sirs!
Our heartfelt thanks and warm regards,
