“Beti Bete”(1964) was directed by L V Prasad for Prasad Productions, Madras. the movie had Sunil Dutt, B Saroja devi, Jamuna, Mehmood, Shubha Khote, Agha, Rajendranath, Sudesh, Jayant, Niranjan Sharma, Randir, Baby Farida, Master Shahid etc in it.

Seven songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the eighth song from the movie. This song, which is not mentioned in HFGK is sung by Rafi. The song is picturised on Sunil Dutt and B Saroja Devi with Agha Niranjan Sharma (I hope I have identified him correctly) also visible.

Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The first line reminded me of Kanan Bala’s song with the same starting line from 1943 film ‘Hospital’. Kanan’s song was very popular in those days and I used to sing (hopefully good) it in my town. As youngsters we used to enjoy distorting the lyrics to get some funny kick out of it. So much so, that I did not realized that on the stage of School function, I was singing it as ‘Laakho raaj hamaari.’ Clapping from the audience encouraged me to repeatedly sing the distorted line. I only realized it later, when my class teacher thrashed me. It was the talk of the town too for few days.

Right. There are many such cases.
I used to sing hum khushi sena mar jaaye(I used to wonder what has sena(army) to do with it.
Actually it was hum khushi se na mar jaaye (Woh Kaun Thhi)
