“Laal Dupatta”(1948) was directed by K B Lal for Aakaash Chitra, Bombay. This movie had Madhubala, Sapru, Ranjeet Kumari, Neelam, Bahagabai, Gulzar, Rajan Haksar, Kesari, Pandit Iqbal, Yusuf, Ulhas etc in it.

There were twelve songs in the movie. Eight of these songs have been discussed in the past.

Here is the ninth song from “Laal Dupatta”(1948) to appear in the blog. This rare song is sung by Rafi and Shamshad Begam alongwith chorus. Manoharlal Khanna is the lyricist. Music is composed by Gyan Dutt.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections in the lyrics as applicable.

arri o o
albeli naar
kyun kare chhupa kar waa aa aar
ghoonghat ke pat khol de ae ae ae
aur kar le ankhiyaan chaar
ho chal sair kara doon
ganga ke mele mein
ye roothh padi main
saajan akele mein

chal sair kara doon
ganga ke mele mein
ganga ke mele mein

tu jhootha bahroopiya aa aa
jhootha tera pyaar
teri shakl langoor ki
main ho gayi re bejaar
ho mujhe chhod gaya tu
mele ke rele mein

mujhe chhod gaya tu
mele ke rele mein

chal sair kara doon
ganga ke mele mein
ganga ke mele mein

o o o
o o o
o o
maine dekhi naar ik julfi
o julfi
oy taine kyun na khaali barf ki re kulfi
o kulfi
ho wo to chali gayi thhi ?? ke thhele mein
wo to chali gayi thhi ?? ke thhele mein
liye doodh(?) khadi main saajan akele mein
saajan akele mein

haan aan aan
tu kya jaane peer paraai

aeji ishq nahin hai doodh malaai
majnu ki khaatir to laila hua deewaana
oy tuhje ye bhi khabar nahin
ke laila mard thha ya

o chal chhod ye jhagde
pad na jhamele mein
chal chhod ye jhagde
pad na jhamele mein

chal sair kara doon
ganga ke mele mein
ganga ke mele mein
