Greetings all – Basant is here. Today is the celebration of Basant Panchmi.

Of all the wonderful songs that have been created in Hindi films, for celebrating this King of Seasons, I would prefer to place this song today to be amongst the top five. Such a beautiful creation this is.

I myself had not heard of this song, till about five days ago. A friend in our circle enquired whether I had this song. He has been searching for it for some time now. Not being aware of it first hand, I said I will check. And when I located it in my collection, and then heard it for the first time, I am simply bowled over by the soft beauty and the delicious attractiveness of this song. The words, the music and the rendition have all come together in a conspiracy to steal your heart away.

The words are written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak. Ah, the enchantment of the lyrics that say – “चलो तारों के गजरे बना लो सखी” – come, lets make a garland from the stars. The wonderful music is from the mind of Ajit Merchant. The soft and beautiful melody – it makes such a delightful use of chorus lines interspersed with the primary singing voice. And this exquisite rendition is in the voice of Sudha Malhotra. She has rendered some of the loveliest songs in Hindi films. And this one stands right up there with her best – sung ever so sweetly.

The film is ‘Ram Bhakt Vibhishan’ from 1958 – one of the more obscure and unfamiliar productions, whose claim to fame might well just be the lovely music – like this song. The production banner is Rajni Chitr, Bombay. The film is produced by SJ Rajdev and directed by Samar Chatterji. The star cast of this film is listed as Nirupa Roy, Shahu Modak, Prem Adeeb, Krishna Kumari, Shanta Apte, Babu, Kamal, Surendra Kumar, Neema, Sarita, and Bipin Gupta. A total of nine songs are listed for this film. This is the third song for this film to appear here on our blog.

Listen to this lovely creation, and marvel – at the gems that still need to be discovered.

Song – Ritu Raja Ne Teer Chalaaya  (Ram Bhakt Vibhishan) (1958) Singer – Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics – Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD – Ajit Merchant
Chorus

Lyrics

ritu raja ne. . .

ritu raja ne teer chalaaya
jiya lalchaaya
sajaniyaa..aa..aa
aaya basant
hua birha ka ant
sakhi aaya basant

o o oooo
ooooo oo ooooo
bhanwre chaley. . .
bhanwre chaley
bhanwre chaley gungunaate huye
suno praanon ki bansi bajaate huye
gungunaate huye
gungunaate huye
zara nainon se
zara nainon se naina milaate huye
chalo masti ki basti basaate huye
ritu raja ne
ritu raja ne teer chalaaya
jiya lalchaaya
sajaniyaa..aa..aa
aaya basant
hua birha ka ant
sakhi aaya basant

o o oooo
ooooo oo ooooo
angdaaiyaan. . .
angdaaiyaan
angdaaiyaan le ke pariaan chalin
neele neele gagan ki sundariaan chalin
dekho pariaan chalin
dekho pariaan chalin
badi natkhat hai
badi natkhat rengeeli badi manchali
saari duniya mein machne lagi khalbali
ritu raja ne
ritu raja ne teer chalaaya
jiya lalchaaya
sajaniyaa..aa..aa
aaya basant
hua birha ka ant
sakhi aaya basant

o o oooo
ooooo oo ooooo
chanda taley. . .
chanda taley
chanda taley jhoola daalo sakhi
chalo taaron ki gajre bana lo sakhi
jhoola daalo sakhi
jhoola daalo sakhi
hath chhodo ji
hath chhodo najariya utha lo sakhi
baanke balma ko apna bana lo sakhi
ritu raja ne
ritu raja ne teer chalaaya
jiya lalchaaya
sajaniyaa..aa..aa
aaya basant
hua birha ka ant
sakhi aaya basant

आया बसंत
हुआ बिरहा का अंत
सखी आया बसंत

ओ ओ ओssss
ओssss ओs ओssss
भँवरे चले॰ ॰ ॰
भँवरे चले
भँवरे चले गुनगुनाते हुये
सुनो प्राणों की बंसी बजाते हुये
गुनगुनाते हुये
गुनगुनाते हुये
ज़रा नैनों से
ज़रा नैनों से नैना मिलाते हुये
चलो मस्ती की बस्ती बसाते हुये
ऋतु राजा ने॰ ॰ ॰
ऋतु राजा ने तीर चलाया

अंगड़ाइयाँ
अंगड़ाइयाँ ले के पारियाँ चलीं
नीले नीले गगन की सुंदरियाँ चलीं
देखो पारियाँ चलीं
देखो पारियाँ चलीं
बड़ी नटखट है
बड़ी नटखट रंगीली बड़ी मनचली
सारी दुनिया में मचने लगी खलबली
ऋतु राजा ने॰ ॰ ॰
ऋतु राजा ने तीर चलाया

चंदा तले झूला डालो सखी
चलो तारों के गजरे बना लो सखी
झूला डालो सखी
झूला डालो सखी
हठ छोड़ो जी
हठ छोड़ो नजरिया उठा लो सखी
बाँके बलमा को अपना बना लो सखी
ऋतु राजा ने॰ ॰ ॰
ऋतु राजा ने तीर चलाया
जिया ललचाया

Greetings to all on this occasion of ‘Basant Panchami’ today (10.02.2019) !!!
@Sudhir ji – many thanks for this post and this song particularly.
Yes, it has all the ingredients to be a song to welcome the ‘basant’. And the lyrics, singing, the chorus, the composition all attractive and making it a ‘beautiful’ song. It surely is one of the best song standing with other great compositions for ‘basant’ from Hindi movies.
I think I am also listening this song for the first time, and liked it very much,
thanks again,
