‘Meharbaan’ had seven songs that were written by Rajinder Krishan. Following is the list of songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

06 Saari Duniya Mein Dekhe Hain Do Anpadh Naadaan Lata Mangeshkar
07 Ik Raaja Ki Sun Lo Kahaani Mohd Rafi 06.06.2021

This movie made its debut on the blog on 21.01.2013 with its song “Ae Mere Dost Ae Mere Humdum” which I had myself shared then as a ‘lyrics contributor’ on the blog. This song is a solo song by Rafi Saab. The second song from this movie, “Mera Gadhaa Gadhon Ka Leader“,  which appeared on the blog was sung by Rafi Saab and Mehmood. This song was posted on 09.12.2016 which is almost after a gap of four years.

The most beautiful and well known song from this movie ” Ik Raaja Ki Sun Lo Kahaani“, a multiple version song – one duet and other solo – was posted on the blog on 06.06.2021 and that was almost after a gap of four and half years from the second song posted on the blog.

I had read about this movie (‘Meharbaan’) earlier when the movie ‘Swarg’ (1990) was released. I had watched ‘Swarg’ then for Rajesh Khanna.

So the name of this movie ‘Meharbaan’ had in my memory since then. When I became associated with this blog, I was under the impression that the songs from this movie should be already there. However, I was in for a surprise when I realized that none of the songs from this movie ‘Meharbaan’ were posted on the blog. I listened to the songs from this movie and noted down the lyrics of all the songs then itself in 2013. This movie will be completing its ten-year run on the blog.

All the songs of ‘Meharbaan’ are composed by the legendary music director Ravi Shankar Sharma known to us as Ravi. Today 3rd March, 2022 is the ninety-sixth birth anniversary of music director Ravi (3 March 1926 – 7 March 2012). On this occasion let us listen to this composition of Ravi. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle. This song, a semi classical song is the only song that Asha Bhonsle sung in this movie.

Only audio of the today’s song is available. (This was the case even then in 2013) I think this song may not have been included in the movie. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this song and today’s movie.


Song – Saawan Ki Raat Kaari Kaari (Meharbaan) (1967) Singer – Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics – Rajinder Krishan, MD – Ravi

Lyrics

saawan ki raat kaari kaari
saawan ki raat kaari kaari
jiyara sataaye morey piyara na aaye
haaye baat takat main to
haari haari haari
saawan ki raat kaari kaari
saawan ki raat kaari

baahar barsat badra pal pal
aur idhar ankhiyan mein jal thhal
baahar barsat badra pal pal
aur idhar ankhiyan me jal thhal
main wo abhaagan radha
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa
main wo abhaagan radha jiske
roothh gaye baanwaari
ee ee ee
saawan ki raat kaari
kaari
saawan ki raat kaari

naina jitna neer bahaaye
aur bhi man ki agan bhadkaaye
naina jitna neer bahaaye
aur bhi man ki agan bhadkaaye
saawan se keh do ab jaaye
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
saawan se
saawan se
saawan se keh do ab jaaye
raakh bhayi phulwaari ee ee
saawan ki raat kaari kaari
saawan ki raat kaaaaaari
saawan ki raat kaaaaari
saawan ki raat kaaaari
saawan ki raat kaari
raat kaari
raat kaaaaari

सावन की रात कारी कारी
सावन की रात कारी कारी
जियरा सताये मोरे पियरा ना आए
हाए बाट तकत मैं तो
हारी हारी हारी
सावन की रात कारी कारी
सावन की रात कारी

बाहर बरसत बदरा पल पल
और इधर अखियों में जल थल
बाहर बरसत बदरा पल पल
और इधर अखियों में जल थल
मैं वो अभागन राधा
आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ
आ आ
मैं वो अभागन राधा
जिसके रूठ गए बनवारी॰ ॰ ॰
सावन की रात कारी
कारी
सावन की रात कारी

नैना जितना नीर बहाये
और भी मन की अगन भड़काए
नैना जितना नीर बहाये
और भी मन की अगन भड़काए
सावन से कह दो अब जाये
आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ
सावन से
सावन से
सावन से कह दो अब जाये
राख़ भई फुलवारी॰ ॰ ॰
सावन की रात कारी कारी
सावन की रात का॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰री
सावन की रात का॰॰आ॰॰री
सावन की रात का॰॰॰री
सावन की रात कारी
रात का॰॰॰री
रात का॰॰आ॰॰री
