1961 mythological Black and White film ‘Jai Bhawani’ was directed by Dhirubhai Desai, under ‘Prabha Pictures’ banners. The star-cast included Jayashri Gadkar, Manhar Desai, Lata Sinha, Sapru, Veena, Niranjan Sharma, Ram Mohan, Master Dabbar etc. HFGK is silent about the lyricists, but the other source on internet gives that credit to ‘Gopal Singh Nepali’ (1926-1963). The music is credited to S Mohinder. Three out of eight songs are already discussed on this Blog and this one, a solo by Suman Kalyanpur, will be the fourth one.

S.Mohinder, the great Hindi films music director of yesteryear was born (1925) in Punjab in Pakistan and migrated to India. The love for classical music brought S. Mohinder to Benares, the Mecca of Indian Classical Music. After some years of grooming, S. Mohinder, moved to Bombay (now Mumbai), the center of the film industry, to work in Indian film industry. From 1948 to 1966, he composed melodious music in about 25 films.

Suman sings this simple worded song in a simple catchy tune, but her sweetness of voice is apparent and captivating.



Song–O o Mohana Na Jaa Raadha Ko Chhod Ke (Jai Bhawaani)(1961) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics–Gopal Singh Nepali, MD–S Mohinder


o o
mohna na ja,
raadha ko chhod ke
ke raadha kaise jiye ae
jiye to kiske liye ae
o o
mohna na ja aa
raadha ko chhod ke ae
o o

preet hai meri sainyaan jamuna ki dhaara aa
tu hi kinaara raaja
tu hi sahaara
ruk ja re
laut aa re
bansi bajaiyya
preet na hogi hamse ae
jag mein dubaara
ke raadha kaise jiye ae
jiye to kiske liye ae
o o
mohna na ja aa
raadha ko chhod ke ae
o o

main bani bholepan mein
teri deewaani ee
toone bedardi sainyaan
ek na maani
dil diya chupke tujh ko
keh bhi na paayi ee
honthon pe aake rah gayi
dil ki kahaani
ke raadha kaise jiye ae
iye to kiske liye ae
o o
mohna na ja aa
raadha ko chhod ke ae
o o

jaan tu lena chaahe
tujhko nazar hai ae
dil to natwar mera aa
tera hi ghar hai
jaaun to jaaun kahaan
thhehroon kahaan main
aandhi hai peechhe peechhe ae
aage bhanwar hai
ke raadha kaise jiye ae
jiye to kiske liye ae
o o
mohna na jaa aa
raadha ko chhod ke ae
o o
