In Hindi movies, lip syncing of songs is mainly the preserve of the lead actors. Sometimes we find character actors too getting to lip sync a song or two. viz suffering maa is seen singing bhajans or remonstrating with the Almighty. 🙂

There are some occasions when small time actors too get to sing songs. These songs tend to be of the “roadside tamasha” genre of song, where a small time actor is seen playing a dholak or harmonium while a small time actress dances. Public dutifully gather around then in a circle and watch the performance standing perfectly still.

Such songs could be solo or a duet. One well known song of this genre is the duet song from “Zanjeer”(1973) viz. Deewaane hain deewaanon ko na ghar chaahiye which was picturised on Gulshan Bawra and Sanjana.

Here is a fenmale solo song of the same genre. This song is from “Ghar Ka Chiraag”(1967). It was a movie which was produced and directed by Jagdev Bhabhri for Harinath Films, Bombay.

The movie had Waheeda Rehman, Dharmendra, Indrani Mukherjee, Master Ajay, Abhi Bhattacharya, Purnima, Tuntun, Balraj Sahni, Jabeen Jalil, Jagdev, Dev Kumar etc in it.

In this song, we find a lady singing and dancing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice, whereas a gentleman plays harmonium.

The video is not clear. Even if it was clear, it is unlikely that I would have been able to identify the actors. 🙂 I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors.

Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.



Song-Jaane kaise chori chori balma ne dekha (Ghar Ka Chiraag)(1967) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Madan Mohan
Unknown male voice


jaane kaise chori chori balma ne dekha
dil bekaraar ho gaya ji
unse pyaar ho gaya
jaane kaise chori chori balma ne dekha
dil bekaraar ho gaya ji
unse pyaar ho gaya
unse pyaar ho gaya
unse pyaar ho gaya
dil dil haaye dil bekaraar ho gaya ji
unse pyaar ho gaya

baat ik raat ki thhi
raat barsaat ki thhi
baat ik raat ki thhi
raat barsaat ki thhi
thi idhar sharam
udhar zid mulaakaat ki thhi
pahle aahon ne kaha
phir nigaahon ne kaha
aa laga loon main galey
unki baahon ne kaha
uske baad

sunke thhamna haaye thhamna
sunke thamna haaye mera dushwaar ho gaya
dushwaar ho gaya
dil haaye dil bekaraar ho gaya
jaane kaise chori chori balma ne dekha
dil bekaraar ho gaya ji
unse pyaar ho gaya
