Hullo to Atuldom

Today’s song/ post is to wish a Doe-eyed beauty on her birthday. At the when she was a busy movie star – starring in Bengali and Hindi movies – I had no clue about who she was, where she was from etc, and I didn’t care to find as at that stage in my life I was more of a watcher and not researcher. I have started trying to find things about the people who I used to like back then only now and I am amazed by the things I read and see.

So, today’s Bengali beauty was a convent school teacher to start of, who also tried her hand at modelling, participated in the Femina Miss India contest of 1971 and was judged Miss India World 1971. She went on to represent India at the Miss World 1971 and Queen of the Pacific pageant held in Australia where she was 1st runner-up. She also happens to be Anitha Guha’s niece. I am talking of the beautiful Prema Narayan- who made a name for herself playing Dhanno in the Uttam Kumar -Sharmila Tagore starrer “Amanush”. She was mostly cast as a dancer/ vamp or supporting roles with a western touch to her character. We remember her in songs of “Armaan”. “Ponga Pandit” etc as a person whose eyes are full of mischief.

“Barsaat Ki EkRaat” was a Shakti Samanta produced and directed 1981 release. It starred Amitabh Bachchan, Rakhee, Utpal Dutt, Amjad Khan, Abhi Bhattacharya, Prema Narayan, Sujit Kumar, AsitSen etc. Music was by R. D. Burman& Anand Bakshi was the lyricist. Songs were in the voices of Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle. This is the 3rd song from the movie on our blog. The first two were posted in October 2009. Here is this “in the villain’s den” “disguise song” (please don’t recognise Amitabh Bachchan) with Prema Narayan and chorus trying to distract Amjad Khan so that sneak into Amjad’s den; probably looking for someone. (can’t remember need to see the movie again for that)

Wishing Prema Narayan good health and good times on her birthday today (4 april 2019).

Editor’s note: This song is the one thousandth song of Anand Bakshi is the blog. It is easily the most low key thousandth song post for an artist in the blog. Anand Bakshi becomes the seventh artist and third lyricist to complete 1000 songs in the blog.

Lyrics

manchali ho manchali ho

tu yahaan se bach ke nikal jaaye

haay haay manchali ho manchali
kaun si hai yeh gali
haay haay manchali ho manchali
kaun si hai yeh gali
hoo yeh woh gali hai
yahaan ik baar jo aaya
laut na paaya
tu yahaan se bach ke nikal jaaye

haay haay manchali o manchali
kaun si hai ye gali

ho o raaz hai ye
raaz bataane ka nahin hai
aane ka hai rasta
jaane ka nahin hai
raaz hai ye raaz
bataane ka nahin hai
aane ka hai rasta
jaane ka nahin hai

arre aisa lage
yeh hai koyi bhool bhulaiya
thhaam le bainyyaan
main jo kahin kho gaya toh
tu bhi toh kho jaayegi
haan manchali ho manchali
ah ha

aa ha
manchali ho manchali
ah ha

arre aa gaya toh aa gaya
ab jaaoon kahaan main
sar pe kafan baandh ke
aayaa hoon yahaan main
aa gaya toh aa gaya
ab jaoon kahaan main
sar pe kafan baandh ke
aaya hoon yahaan main
chhod de ye zid hai buri
sun mere raaja

bol ri
hosh mein aa jaa
aa gayaa
dil to gayaa
jaan bacha le
aage hai teri marzi ee

ae he manchali o manchali
ah ha
kaun si hai ye gali
aa ha
manchali o manchali
ah ha
kaun si hai ye gali

manchali ho
manchali ho
manchali ho
manchali ho

arre ab kisi ki yaad agar aaye toh aaye
ab yahaan se meri khabar jaaye to jaaye
ab kisi ki yaad agar aaye toh aaye
ab yahaan se meri khabar jaaye to jaaye
phir bhi nikal jaaoonga main pankh lagaa ke
mast hawaa ke
dekh na tu dekhti rah jaayegi duniya saari
hey hey manchali ho manchali
kaun si hai ye gali
manchali ho manchali
kaun si hai ye gali
hey yeh woh gali hai
yahaan ik baar jo aaya
laut na paaya
tu yahaan se bach ke nikal jaaye
toh qismat teri ee
manchali main manchali

kaun si hai ye gali
hoo manchali main manchali
kaun si hai ye gali
manchali ho manchali
kaun si hai ye gali
manchali ho manchali
kaun si hai ye gali
manchali ho manchali
kaun si hai ye gali
manchali ho manchali
kaun si hai ye gali

Peevesie’s mom ji,

This song was inspired from a song from a Bengali film “Samar’ (1950), ‘sundari lo sundari’ composed by S D Burman. .

Anil Biswas also composed similar sounding tune ( with some variations) for;’Lajawaab’ (1950):

S D Burman used his tune of the Bengali film song for Hindi film ‘Munimji'(1954) with some variations:

Similar sounding tune was used with some variations in ‘Solvan Saal’ (1958):

https://atulsongaday.me/2009/07/12/yahi-to-hai-wo-yahi-to-hai/

I guess this tune was based on a folk song from East Bengal (now Bangla Desh) Both Anil Biswas and S D Burman had spent their younger days in then East Bengal.
