“Paalki” (1967) is a Poonam Pictures presentation. It was directed by Mahesh Kaul and S U Sunny. The movie had Rajendra Kumar,Waheeda Rehman,Rehman, Johnny Walker, Murad, Rashid Khan, Nazir Hussain, Manmohan Krishna, Minoo Mumtaz, Pratima Devi etc in it.

Nine songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the tenth and final song from this movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. This song is picturised on Rajendra Kumar as a stage song and it salutes the city of Lucknow. That way, this song is reminiscent of the song Ye Lucknow ki sarzameen from “Chaudhvin Ka Chaand”(1960) which was another ode to the city of Lucknow.

Like the “Chaudhvin Ka Chaand”(1960) song, this song is a movie opening song. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist of this song as well.

“Chaudhvin Ka Chaand”(1960) had music by Ravi whereas this movie “Paalki”(1967) had music by Naushad.

Today (7 july 2016) is the festival of Eid. So I extend my heartiest greetings to all on this occasion.

With this song, “Paalki”(1967) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog. Now, 47 movies with music by Naushad from 1942 to 1968 – from “Shaarda”(1942) to “Sangharsh”(1968)-have been YIPPEED in the blog. Now the first four movie of Naushad (released between 1940 and 1942) as well as last 13 movies of Naushad (released between 1970 and 2005) are left to be YIPPEED in the blog.



Song-Ae shahar e Lucknow tujhe mera salaam hai (Paalki)(1967) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad


ae shahar-e-lucknow
tujhe mera salaam hai ae
ae shahar-e-lucknow
tujhe mera salaam hai ae
tera hi naam doosra
jannat ka naam hai ae
ae shahar-e-lucknow

mere liye bahaar bhi tu
gul badan bhi tu
parwaana aur shamma bhi tu
anjuman bhi tu
zulfon ki tarah mehki hui teri shaam hai ae
ae shahar-e-lucknow

kaisa nikhaar tujh mein hai
kya kya hai baankpan
ghazlen gali gali hain
to naghme chaman chaman
shaayar ke dil se pooch
tera kya makaam hai ae
ae shahar-e-lucknow
tujhe mera salaam hai ae
tera hi naam doosra
jannat ka naam hai ae
ae shahar-e-lucknow

tu wo hai log shahare nigaara(?) kahen jise
firdaus e husn rashq e bahaara kahen jise
teri har ek ada mein wafa ka payaam hai ae
ae shahar-e-lucknow
tujhe mera salaam hai ae
tera hi naam doosra
jannat ka naam hai ae
ae shahar-e-lucknow

Lucknow ki sarzameen ke bloggers kaha ho aap?


Kya bataayen, Nitin Shah sahib, hum khud hi apni talaash mein lage huey hain. Atul sahib ki phir bhee meherbaani hai ki in guzarey zamaane ke warqon mein humein yaad kar liya. Unka shukriya.
