“Achoot”(1940) was directed by Chandulal Shah for Ranjit Movietone, Bombay, a well known movie making factory of those days. The movie had Gauhar, Motilal, Vasanti, Charlie, Rajkumari, Sitara, Mazhar, Dixit, T Kapoor, Lal Yakoob, Bhupat Rai, Ibrahim etc in it.

Here is the first song from “Achoot”(1940) to appear in the blog. The singer is described as Miss Khusheed. Going by the voice, this singer is none other than Khursheed Bano. P L Santoshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Gyan Dutt.

Khursheed Bano is known to be an actor-singer. Her name does not appear in the list of actors in this movie. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

This is a rare song which was not available on YT till now.

I have not been able to get one particular word right in the lyrics. I request our raeders with keener ears to tell us what word this could be.

Song-Koi bajaao na prem ki veena (Achhoot)(1940)Singer-Khursheed Bano, Lyrics-P L Santoshi, MD-Gyan Dutt


koi bajaao na prem ki veena
koi bajaao na prem ki veena
koi na chhedo iske taar
ismein nahin sukh??
ismein nahin sukh ??

zahar mila hai is amrit mein
kabhi na chhoona ye pyaali
ek vindu mein sindhu samaaya
ek vindu mein sindhu samaaya
kaise hogi khaali
kaise hogi khaali
badhegi naahak pyaas apaar
badhegi naahak pyaas apaar

is mein nahin sukh saar
piya zahar jis pyaas ne
ye khoj raha hai utaar
haan aan aan
piya zahar jis pyaas ne
ye khoj raha hai utaar
ye na sunaana
na piye deewaana
piye na koi ganwaar
piye na koi ganwaar
ismein nahin sukh saar

bhool jaana ye ??
ye geet koi gaana nahin
jal uthhegi aag dil mein aen aen
us desh kabhi jaana nahin
laakhon musaafir jagat ke ae
is raah mein bhoole pade
nagri na dikhti prem ki ee
haath malte hain khade
ismein nahin sukh??
ismein nahin sukh??

If I may suggest –
Last stanza: “भूल न जाना ये भावना” Bhool na jana ye bhaavna.
You have already filled in “isme nahin sukh saar” at many places.
Thanks for the rare and good song.
Avadh Lal


I agree with Avadh Lalji.m


this film was made in two languages so Khursheed acted in the Hindi language version I’m guessing,
