Blog ten year challenge (2009-2019)- Song number 5
Today is 8 february 2019. When I looked back at the movies whose songs were covered in the blog ten years ago on 8 february 2009, I found that seven songs from seven different movies were covered on that day. Six of these movies have been YIPPEED by now. The only movie, which still has a few songs left to be covered in the blog is “Gomti Ke Kinaatre”(1972).

“Gomti Ke Kinaare”(1972) was directed by Sawan Kumar for Mercury Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Meena Kumari, Mumtaz, Sameer, Rehman, Agha, Helen, Paintal, Asit Sen, Shyama, Chandrima Bhaduri, Tuntun, Daisy Irani, Master Alankar, Randheer, Sultan Mazhar, Manorama, Rajan Haksar, Nasreen, Lalita Kumari, Madhu, Aarti, Kamal, I S Johar etc in it, with special appearances by Jalal Agha and Mukri.

The movie had five songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

This song is sung by Manna Dey and Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The so0ng is picturised on Agha and Helen. It appears to be a fantasy song where Agha has a Jin of Alladin Chirag. The Jin, on the wishes of Agha makes Helen appear to perform a dance. That is my understanding of the picturisation of this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us what is happening in this song.

The movie hade its debut in the blog on this day in 2009 when I was based at Jabalpur. Next song was posted in 2011 when I was based at Nagpur, and the third song was posted in 2017 when I was based at Izatnagar, Bareilly. Now I am covering the fourth song from the movie while I am based at another new place.

The movie has another song left in it. Have no fear. Now that I am aware that only one song is left in this movie, I will cover the song without waiting to get transferred to another place. 🙂

chhalkaaun main dil ke pyaale
jo ik nazar mujh pe daale ae
kar doon main usko deewaana

tarse jisko dil
mere haath lag gaya
pyaar ki race mein
jackpot lag gaya
ha aa aa
