Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No.29

This day 10 years ago, viz 4 july 2011 was a monday. That day saw the blog adding as many as seven songs to its tally. Here are the details of the seven songs that were covered on this day seven years ago:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
4123 Raadhe Raani de daaro na bansari mori re Pooran Bhagat(1933) 6 songs covered so far out of 20
4124 Itne door hain huzoor Pyaar Ki Jeet(1948) All 8 songs covered. Movie YIPPEED
4125 Bewafa duniya ki hamne bewafaayi dekh li Grihasthhi(1948) 6 songs covered so far out of 8
4126 Wo to baans Bareilly se aayaa Dahej(1950) All 10 songs covered. Movie YIPPEED
4127 Dil par huaa aisaa jaadoo Mr and Mrs 55(1955) All 8 songs covered. Movie YIPPEED
4128 Maanjhi meri qismat ke Ham Hindustani(1960) 6 songs covered out of 9
4129 Koyi nahin hai phir bhi hai mujhko Patthar Ke sanam(1967) All 7 songs covered. Movie YIPPEED

One can see that four movies ho songs got covered ten years ago have since been YIPPEED. So only three movies, whose songs got covered that day are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today, ten year later.

“Ham Hindustani”(1960) is one of those movies. “Ham Hidustani”(1960) was produced by S Mukherjee and directed by Ram Mukherjee for Filmalay, Bombay. This patriotic movie, seeking to inspire Indians to make India great again through deeds and not by rhetoric, had Sunil Dutt, Asha Parekh, Joy Mukherjee,Helen , Jageerdaar, Agha, Leela, Chitnis, Mubarak, Vijaya Chaudhary, Malika, Sheela Rao, Mirza Musharraf, Rav Avtaar, Moni, Chatterjee, Hari Shivdasani, Yogendra, Bob, B K Mukherjee, Sarita, Saibi, Sitaram, < Baby Nasreen, Caeser, Shyam Chatterjee etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it that were penned by five lyricists.

Six songs have been covered so far.

As Blog ten year challenge, here is another song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

This movie has some well knon songs in it, but the song under discussion is not among them. I heard this song from the first time only today ! What a fantastic semi classical song sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This song should be considered among her masterclass songs. Sadly this song has been forgotten.

The song is picturised as a Lord Krishn related stage dance song, as one can guess from the lyrics. A very young Asha Parekh plays Radha and lip syncs this song. Malika (sister of Mumtaz) plays Lord Krishn. Sheela Rao is also seen in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Song-Chhedo na mohey kaanhaa jaa (Hum Hindustani)(1960) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

chhedo na mohey kaanhaa
jaa aa aa
jaa jaa
chhedo na mohey kaanhaa jaa aa aa
binti karat main to
haar gayee rey ae ae
binnti karat main to
haar gayee rey ae
chhedo na mohey kaanhaa jaa aa aa
jaa jaa
chhedo na mohey kaanhaa jaa aa aa

hatt natkhat
panghat na gher
ghoonghat na chhed
jhat jaaney do dheethh
mohey bhayee rey der
nirakhat samaaj
tohey aaye na laaj
tu hai dagaabaaj
dhakk dhakk dhakk dhakk dhak dhadkey jiyaa
tharr tharr tharr tharr tharr kaanpey jiyaa
morey pathh se piyaa
hatt jaa hatt jaa hatt jaa

sooni dagariyaa hai bijuriyaa chamkey
soonee dagariyaa hai bijuriyaa chamkey
chhed karo na mori
jhanjhar jhamkey ae
chhed karo na mori
jhanjhar jhamkey
gokul ke chor na sataa aa aa aa aa aa
chhedo na mohey kaanhaa jaa aa
jaa jaa
chhedo na mohey kaanhaa jaa aa aaa

gori gori gori gori kanwal kishori
chanchal chakori
ek gaaon ki chhori
main hoon naval naveli
albeli naar
samjhaaye sakhi
tohey baar baar
main chhuyee muyee
chhuyee muyee
karoon kaun jatan
chootey hi haath
kumhalaaye badan
mera tann muraari
mat chhoo mat chhoo mat chhoo

dekh kanhaiyyaa moree chunariyaa sarkey
dekh kanhaiyyaa mori chunariyaa sarkey ae
haayye kalaiyyaa mein chhooriyaan karke
haayye kalaiyyaa mein chhooriyaan karke
brij ke kishore naa sataa aaa aa aaa aa aaa
chhedo na mohey kaanhaa jaa aa
jaa jaa
chhedo na mohey kaanhaa jaa aa aa jaa aa aa aaa
chhedo na mohey kaanhaa
chhedo na mohey kaanhaa
chhedo na mohey kanhaa jaa aa
