Here is the eighth and final song from “Sautela Bhai”(1962). This song is a duet song. HFGK is silent about the singers. Several youtubers who have uploaded this song describe the singers as Mahendra Kapoor and Lata Mangeshkar.

On listening to the song, it is clear that the male voice is Manna Dey. How experienced youtube uploaders cannot differentiate between Mahendra Kapoor and Manna Dey beats me. The two singers have little in common as far as their voices are concerned.

It is the female voice that creates doubts. Prakashchandra guesses that the singers are Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur. I find that the seven songs that we already have from this movie had Manna Dey’s voice in three songs and Lata Mangeshkar’s voice in two songs. Voices of Meena Kapoor, Pankaj Mitra, Anil Biswas and Mahendra Kapoor were also used in the songs of this movie.

Seeing that Pranati (the heroine) is present in the picturisation and she lip synced in two other songs in the movie in Lata Mangeshkar voice, I guess that the female voice could well be Lata Mangeshkar’s. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the female voice.

The song is picturised as a Krishn bhajan where the bhajan singers (Radheshyam, Laxmi Chhaya and Pranati) criticise a repentant Yashoda Mata (Dulaari) for abandoning Krishn. This song is a forgotten gem. It is written by Shailendra. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

with this song, all soongs of “Sautela Bhai”(1962) are covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

maa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa aa
bin madhav saara brij soona aa
kya gokul kya jamuna teer
koi yasoda ki peer na samjhe ae
taane deve naar adheer
yasoda tera kitna hiya kathor
bhej diye mathura nand kishor
bhookh aur pyaas se nit bechain
dhoondta hoga tujhe din rain

haaye ree toone kiya hai kabhi vichaar
krishn tera kitna sukumaar

krishn tera kitna sukumaar
krishn tera kitna aa aa aasukumaaar
jasomati maiya aa ri
kaanha jo tera hota apna laal
kaanha jo tera hota apna laal
to rakhti palkan beech sambhaal
to rakhti palkan beech sambhaal
kaanha jo tera hota apna laal

kokh se teri janam na paaya
par tera balak to kahlaaye
kokh se teri janam na paaya
teri door kabhi rishta nahin hamse
phir bhi hamse raha na jaaye

phir bhi hamse raha na jaaye
kanhaiya bin haal bhaya behaal
kanhaiya bin haal bhaya behaal
kaanha jo tera hota apna laal
kaanha jo tera hota apna laal

tu jo kahti mat jaa lalna
taal na deta wo teri baat
tu jo kahti mat ja lalna

are hum na bilakhte tere kunwar bin a
aur na tadapta wo bin maa
aur na tadapta wo bin ma
haaye ri toone tanik na kiya khayaal
haaye ri toone tanik na kiya khayaal
kaanha jo tera hota apna laal
kaanha jo tera hota apna laal
to rakhti palkan beech sambhaal
to rakhti palkan beech sambhaal
kaanha jo tera hota apna laal
