Today (11 August 2022) is Rakshabandhan. This is the 15th Rakshabandhan for this blog. The first Rakshabandhan for the blog fell on 16 August 2008. That day saw the iconic Rakshabandhan song namely Bhaiyya mere raakhi ke bandhan ko nibhaana (Chhoti Bahan)(1959) getting covered on the blog.

On those early days, only one song was discussed in a day. Subsequently multiple songs began to be covered daily. Festival days were no exception. So more than one Rakshabandhan songs were also discussed in the subsequent occasions.

Till now as many as 24 Rakshabandhan songs have been covered on the blog. Most of these songs (if not all) are sung in the female voice and lip synced by a female character playing the Rakhi tying sister.

The Rakshabandhan song under discussion today is different in quite a few respects. It is sung by a male singer. It is a “sales pitch” song where Rakhi is being sold. The song is sung by Amit Kumar (though HFGK is silent about the name of the singer). It is picturised on Vinod Khanna disguised as an old Rakhi seller. So this song is a “disguise” song as well. Rakesh Roshan and Pradeep Kumar are also seen in the picturisation.

This song is from ‘Hatyaara’ (1977). The movie was produced by Sunil Sharma and JR Shah and directed by Surendra Mohan for Sunil Arts, Bombay. The movie had Vinod Khanna, Moushumi Chatterjee, Rakesh Roshan, Priyadarshini, Nirupa Roy, Pran, Dev Kumar, Man Mohan, Kanahiyalal, Raj Mehra, Chand Usmani, Abhi Bhattacharya, Sunder, Gulshan Bawra, Sahu Modak, Johny Whisky, Sabeena, Shyam, Shefali, Rajkumar, Premji, Bihari, Moolchand, Hamid, Raj Malhotra, Rajkishore, Nazir Kashmiri, Omi, Harun Khan, CL Shah, Jugnu, Kedarnath Sehgal, Chandrima Bhaduri, Baby Prerna, Master Bittu, Master Raju, Master Rajesh Valecha etc. The movie also had guest appearances by Pradeep Kumar, Laxmi Chhaaya and Mehmood.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered so far.

Here is this second song from ‘Hatyaara’ (1977). The movie had three lyricists in it but the lyricist of this song is no known. This song only appears in the movie. Its records were not made. Music direction was by Kalyanji Anandji.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the missing details of the song (viz lyricist).

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

hho o raakhi le lo jee le lo o
raakhi le lo jee le lo o
raakhi le lo jee le lo o
raakhi le lo jee le lo o

jin ko hai raakhi se pyaar
raakhi le lo jee le lo o
raakhi le lo jee le lo

tum bhee chhodo soch vichaar
raakhi le lo hawaaldaar
behnein karengee tumse pyaar
jaldi banogey thaanedaar
raakhi le lo jee le lo o
raakhi le lo jee le lo
hho ley lo o
le lo jee le lo o
raakhi le lo jee le lo o
ding danga ding dangaa ding danga dingi dingi
ding danga ding dangaa dingi dingaa
ding danga ding dangaa dingi dingaa

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir Kapur)

हो ओ राखी ले लो जी ले लो
राखी ले लो जी ले लो
राखी ले लो जी ले लो
राखी ले लो जी ले लो

अरे हिन्दी फिल्मों के सटार
जैसे लता दिलीप कुमार
जैसे जया और गुलज़ार
जिन को है राखी से प्यार
राखी ले लो जी ले लो
राखी ले लो जी ले लो

तुम भी छोड़ो सोच विचार
राखी ले लो हवलदार
बहनें करेंगी तुमसे प्यार
जल्दी बनोगे थानेदार
राखी ले लो जी ले लो
राखी ले लो जी ले लो
हो ले लो ओ
ले लो जी ले लो
राखी ले लो जी ले लो

डिंग डंगा डिंग डंगा डिंग डंगा डिंगी’ डिंगी
डिंग डंगा डिंग डंगा डिंगी’ डिंगा
डिंग डंगा डिंग डंगा डिंगी’ डिंगा
