“Baanoo”(1949) was directed by C M Amla for Marina Pictures, Bombay. This obscure “social” movie had Maya devi, Amar, Sheriff, Leela Kumari, Basu, Vaskar, Gulzar, Gulzar (junior), Anil, Suren Kumar, Mirza Sheriff, Agha, Shanti Madhok etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Baanoo”(1949) to appear in the blog. Singers of this movie are not mentioned in HFGK. But listening to this song leaves no doubt in mind that this song is sung by Rafi.

There were two lyricists in the movie viz Kamil Rashid and Nizami but distribution of songs among the two is not known.

Music is composed by Pram Prasad, aka Ram Prasah Sharma, who was the father of music directors Pyarelal and Ganesh.

I may have erred at a few places in noting down the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

Song-Lo rukh badal raha hai..purdard ye nazaara (Baanoo)(1949) Singer-Rafi, MD-Ram Prasad


lo rukh badal raha hai ae
phir zindagi ka dhaara
lo kar chali hai bewa aa
allaah ka sahaara
purdard ye nazaara

ae do jahaan ke waali ee
de de zara sahaara
haule haule jhuk jhuk
tere saamne pukaara
dikhla de ab kinaara aa aa aa
purdard ye nazaara

barbaad raaste par r
phir zindagi gawaah hain
hansti hai naamuraadi,
ghar hai na aasra hai
gardish mein hai sitaara
purdard ye nazaara

manzil hain door phir bhi ee ee
ummeed chal rahi hai
majboor hai jawaani ee ee
kaanton mein pal rahi hai
aahon pe hai guzaara
purdard ye nazaara

kya dekhti hain aankhen aen
ghar hai na ab wo dar hai ae
khela jahaan ladakpan
ab wo jagah khandhar hai
dekhe koi khudaara aa aa aa aa
purdard ye nazaara

kab tak yoon hi phiregi ee
taqdeer ki sataayi
bewa ki kul kamaayi ee
le de ke ek bhaai
dil ka wahi sahaara aa aa aa
purdard ye nazaara

The style of singing, as most of you will be knowing, is called “Heer”. This style was popularized by Mehdi Hassan and others.
