Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No.101

On this date ten years ago (29 April 2013), six songs from six different movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Post No Song Title Name of the movie Remarks
8001 Mera husn lootne aayaa Chandralekha (1948) 8 songs covered out of 11 by now
8002 Chanda ki chaandni na suhaaye to kya karen Duniya Ek Saraai (1947) 5 songs out of 9 by now
8003 Tere saath chal rahe hain ye zameen ye chaand taare Angaarey(1954) Movie YIPPEED by now
8004 Itni si baat ka fasaana na banaao Ek Ladki Saat Ladke(1961) Movie YIPPEED by now
8005 Ham pe daya rakhna Aas (1953) Movie YIPPEED in the blog with this song
8006 Jaa jaa jaa jaa tujhe ham jaan gaye Sehraa (1963) Movie YIPPEED by now

We observe that four movies (out of six) whose songs were covered in the blog on this date ten years ago (on 29 April 2013) have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with two unYIPPEED movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (29 April 2023).

“Duniya Ek Saraai”(1947) is one of the BTYC eligible movies today.

“Duniya Ek Saraai”(1947) was directed by Kidar Sharma for Ranjit Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Jagirdar, Begum Para, Altaf, Rajendra, Meena Kumari, Shanta Kumari, Nazirabai, Kesarbai, Pt.Iqbal, Kumar Junior etc in it.

The movie had 9 songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far.

Here is the sixth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Meena Kumari. Kidar Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only audio of the song is available. It is clear that the song was picturised on Meena Kumari herself as a “separated from beloved” genre of song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Song-Saawan beet gayo maayee ree (Duniya Ek Saraai)(1947) Singer-Meena Kumari, Lyrics-Kidar Sharma, MD-Hansraj Bahl
