“Bandagi” (1972) was a “social” movie which was directed by K Shankar for MCR Films, Madras. The movie had Vinod Mehra, Sandhya Roy, Madan Puri, Sujit Kumar, Ramesh Deo, Sundar, Birbal, Shivraj, Prem Kumar, Gemini Balu, Indira Bansal, Shammi, Shabnam, Pandhari Bai, Padma Khanna, Jagdeep etc in it.

This movie had six songs in it. !972 was a time when I was as my precocious best as far as listening to Hindi movie songs on loudspeakers and radio was concerned. But I must admit that I never heard any songs of this movie. I was not even aware of the name of the movie till now ! So it is clear that the movie did not do well at the box office.

One song from the movie has been discussed in the past. Here is the second song from “Bandagi”(1972) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The picturisation shows Vinod Mehra (badminton racquet in hand) singing this teasing cum flattering song for Sandhya Roy (also holding a badminton racquet). The same song picturised over a Shammi Kapoor or Jeetendra would have made this song a hit song. Sadly Vinod Mehra never had the charisma of a top romantic hero. Investing on penny stocks like Vinod Mehra and Sandhya Roy and hoping to make handsome profits neither works in stock market nor in Hindi movies. 🙂



Song-Mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai (Bandagi)(1972) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Shankar Jaikishan


waah waah
kya kehne hain

mera yaar
mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai
kambakht bahaaron ka kaleja jalta hai
o mera yaar
o mera yaar
o mera yaar
o mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai
hey hey

uff mastaani
haay bhari jawani
uff mastaani
bhari jawaani
jaise chadhti nadiya ka paani
mukhde ko
mukhde ko dekh ke sooraj aankhen malta hai ae ae
o mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai
hey hey

rang badan ka
haay chandan jaisa
rang badan ka chandan jaisa
chalta phirta ek chaman sa
sharma ke
sharma ke din bhi waqt se pehle dhalta hai ae ae
mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai

roop ki barkha
aise barse
roop ki barkha aise barse
dhoop bhi chhup jaaye darte darte
palko ke
palko ke saaye me ik shola sa tapta hai ae ae
mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai
o mera yaar
o mera yaar
o mera yaaaar
o mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai
