“Kaaghaz Ki Naao” (1975) was produced and directed by BR Ishara for BRI Arts, Bombay. The movie had Sarika and Raj Kiran (making their debuts as lead actors in grown up roles). The movie also had Pradeep Kumar, Aruna Irani, Helen, IS Johar, Paaro, Johnny Whisky, Dileep Dutt, Shyam Dubey, Amal Sen, Hamid, Asha Sharma, Rajni Verma, Hardeep, Maniyar, Arbind Dasgupta, Manhar Desai, Asit Sen, Manmohan Krishan, Reena Ghosh, Master Mitthoo etc. in it.

There were four songs in the movie. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Kaaghaz Ki Naao” (1975) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Manna Dey. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jaagmohan.

Only the audio seems to be available as of now. From the sounds of it, this song is bidaai song, and if my guess is correct, it must be a song playing in the background as the bride is given her send off from her baabul.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Song-Aaj sakhi main baabul ka ghar chhod chali (Kaaghaz Ki Naao)(1975) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan


aaj sakhi ee
main baabul ka ghar chhod chali
aaj sakhi ee
main baabul ka ghar chhod chali
pi ki lagan mein
saare naate
saare bandhan tod chali
aaj sakhi ee
main baabul ka ghar chhod chali

bachpan beeta jahaan rang raliyon mein
aaj paraayi hoon main un galiyon mein
na main ladi na poora bol hi boli
kaahe sajaayi mori baabul doli
aaj sakhi ee
main baabul ka ghar chhod chali

dukh ye judaai ka tu hans hans ke sahna
ye hi to hai is nagri ki reet ri bahna
ro ke vida hote hain
hote hain jo bhi
jinko vida karna hai
rote hain wo bhi
aaj sakhi ee
main baabul ka ghar chhod chali
