“Chingaari”(1955) was directed by S Srivastava for co-operative pictures production, Bombay. The movie had Shekhar, Nalini Jaywant, Leela Misra, Sunalini Devi, Pran etc in it.

This forgotten movie had eight rare songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Chingaari”(1955) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Shailendra is the lyricist. HFGK mentions the music director as Manohar. We thought that it was Manohar Sonik, but by now we know that it was Manohar Arora.

This movie had seven Lata solo songs in it, so it follows that they were all meant for the lead actress viz Nalini Jaiwant. And so we can safely assume that this song was lip synced by Nalini Jaiwant in the movie.

This song, like other songs of the movie, is a forgotten gem.


Song-Raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan (Chingaari)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Manohar Arora

Lyrics

raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan
lut gaye mere donon jahaan aan
apna paraaya koi nahin
sar pe jhuk aaya aasmaan
aa
raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan
lut gaye mere donon jahaan

dil bechaara toota hua
gham ke haathon loota hua
kheench rahe hain is jaal ko
beraham ?? juda
ae suhaane gham tu bata
main tujhe ab chhupaaun kahaan
raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan
lut gaye mere donon jahaan aan
apna paraaya koi nahin
sar pe jhuk aaya aasmaan

dil ke mehmaan dil se bhi ja
ab tu is duniya mein na aa
bhool ja mujhko tu bhool ja
poochh na mujhse koi wajah
dil bhi mera dil na raha
ab tujhe main basaaun kahaan
raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan
lut gaye mere donon jahaan aan
apna paraaya koi nahin
sar pe jhuk aaya aasmaan aa
raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan
lut gaye mere donon jahaan aan
