Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

About this blog

I am Atul,an India based male in my 40s.My interests are similar to the interests of a typical Indian- Bollywood, cricket, politics etc.

I already have two blogs under my belt- is where I discuss music in general, and I used for humour. Now I felt the need for a blog where I could express my admiration of certain bollywood songs that I simply love.

In this blog I will discuss some wonderful songs that I have had the privilege of listening to, over the years.Here I will discuss the songs, (including its lyrics and its translation into English), and my reasons why I like the song.I hope that there are many like minded people who will find these discussions interesting.

Your comments are welcome. Or you may email me at

Update ( on 3 october 2008 )
I thank all the visitors of this blog for their encouragement. This blog has been regularly clocking more than 300 visits daily ( best being 506 visits a day). The home page now has a google page rank of 4. Many individual posts ( posted before 14 septeber 2008 ) now have google page ranks of 3 and some even 4. All this is entirely because of the readers of this blog.

I take this opportunity to thank all my visitors and I assure you all that I will try to live up to your expectations in future also. Please give your suggestions so that I may be able to improve this blog, which is a labour of love for me.

Update on 1 January 2009

I wish all my readers and their near and dear ones a happy new year. May this new year be the best ever for you.

I thank all my readers for patronising this blog and encouraging me by their visits, comments, and farmaishes.

Thanks to your encouragement, this labour of love now has as many as 480 outstanding Bollywood songs ( as on 1 january 2009) and growing at a good pace. This blog is clocking over 500 visits daily ( maximum being 995 in one day).

I thank all my visitors once again and assure you all that I will continue to bring more such songs regularly for your reading, listening and viewing pleasures.

Update on 12 november 2009
Now, the blog has over 2150 songs as on now. The traffic has also increased. Now the blog gets over 1500 hits a day on an average and the highest hit in a day has been 2301. The blog does very well on search engines for relevant searches. It is heartening to see the blog growing so nicely. Hopefully we will have exciting days ahead of us.

Update on 28 march 2010
Since november 2009, when I posted my last update, I have slowed down in my rate of posting. Still, 2365 number of songs as of now is quite a lot of songs.

I find that the number of visitors to this blog has stabilised to an average figure of around 1500 visits daily (2320 being the highest number of visits in a day), which works out to just under 50,000 visitors per month. This blog has received nearly 7,00,000 visits since it was started.

I may have slowed down, but Hopefully it is just the lull before the storm. There are still tens of thousands of great songs yet to be covered which will take a lifetime. In other words, I will be kept busy posting songs for a long long time and there is no possibility that I will be running out of songs to post any time soon.


In this blog, I embed audio/video links from sites like youtube and dailymotion etc. I gratefully acknowledge the efforts and contributions that the uploaders of these songs make in making these songs available to us for our pleasure and enjoyment. Without these links, this blog would not be what it is.

I also provide information about songs that is culled from different sources, mostly by googling. I acknowledge their contributions too, which helps me provide some useful information about the songs that I discuss.

PS- Sometimes I get comments where new visitors ask me to send them various songs. I will like to point it out that this blog is a place to discuss songs and I am not in a position to send links to songs or the songs themselves. As can be seen, this blog is a labour of love where I discuss songs with people (many of them becoming good internet friends with me), and not a place to share download links.

DisclaimerI would like to believe that I have a sense of humour. Raja in fact has coined a term “Atulism” for this kind of humour. I often love to make light hearted comments about movies, songs, actors etc in my discussion of the songs. They are needed to be taken as such and should not be misconstrued as anything serious. I love to make light hearted observations and those observations need to be treated as such.

It has been made amply clear that this blog is a labour of love where we value the oldtime virtues of honesty and transparancy. By now we have a core group of regulars who are making invaluable contributions voluntarily through various means, viz sending lyrics, writeups, informations etc. Music lovers who are willing to join this music bandwagon are welcome.

Music lovers who are willing to contribute lyrics should ensure that their contributions are original in the sense that they should have listened to the lyrics themselves and noted them down. Please do not send incorrect/ incomplete lyrics copied from elsewhere on internet calling them your contributions. We in this blog are very particular about the completeness and accuracy of lyrics that are being posted.

We seem to have covered all songs of Kismat-43. The Ameerbai version of ‘Dheere dheere..’ was put up in comments by kamathji on the duet’s post. Please check.

Atul ji

I think we have covered all the songs of
Satyakam(1969 )already,
Please check this fact, with HFGK and paint the title of the movie with RED colour

Atul ji
Correction please
as per above vinyl records of the movie
Hasrat jaipuri written only one song of Amrapali and all other songs are written by Shailendra
Therefore please correct the name of lyricist of “Neel gagan ki chhaaon mein” song-> as HASRAT JAIPURI”
Shailendra is NOT the lyricist of the song :”Neel gagan ke chhaon mein”

Following song from Mr.Natwarlal was not added to the list of songs by movie wise:(posted on 9th September 2014)
“Tauba tauba kya hoga”:by Asha bhosle

Atul ji Please update this(I wrote this comment again, If in case you haven`t read my earlier comment regarding this)


I have counted that song also. This song was there in my list of songs. I do not know how it was missing in the posted list. Now I have corrected it.

Dear Sir,
This is a new pharmaish, my urgent request.There was a very melodious duet in late 60s or early 70s which was probably sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata.I am not able to recollect the “Mukhda” but in “Antra” the line was ” piya chhod to bairaag bano sansari” sung by the female singer. The male singer continued to insist on being “brahmachari” i.e. after some words the male voice said “main hoon brahmachari”.
I shall be thankful for this song, deluding me for years.

Correction/ updation required

Regarding the below mentioned song:
Please change the film`s name as “AUR EK PREM KAHANI)(1996)
in the post and
in the respective tags.

We have wrongly mentioned it as
“Ek aur prem kahani” in all the places of post and tags.

Atul ji,
“door hato aye duniyawalon”-Kismet-1943
While reading Sharad Dutt’s book “Ritu aaye Ritu jaaye”on Anil Biswas, I found at one place, details about this song discussed by Anil Biswas.
According to his version ( which has to be the real one), this song was sung by Anil Biswas,Kavi pradeep and Arun kumar mukherjee along with the chorus.
I request you to kindly change the credits of the song.
According to Hamandir ji also AB and Pradeep are there in the song.

The posts covered in this blog often describe in depth about the lives of cine artists, be they singer,MD,or actors/actresses and that too with authenticityand reliablity.I had raised a point sometime ago as to how to locate those posts.For example I want to peep into the post that carried details about Pran and Kuldeep Kaur in a single post.How to reach to this post?Can any one help me please?

It is not possible to locate such article easily at this time. But efforts are on to ensure that such articles can be located with ease.

O.K. That would be wonderful,I can wait.But in the meantime,kindly help me in reaching to the post carrying details about Pran and Kuldeep Kaur.Regards

Atul ji,

Film AAKAASH-1953 had 7 songs and 6 have been posted already.
The remaining 7th song is a Hemant-geeta Duet “Ye mast nazar shokh adaa”.
This song was also included in film Bandi-57 and has been posted in 2011 itself. It is the same song and there is a note in HFGK accordingly on both films.
In such a case, can we consider film AAKAASH-53 as a film with all songs covered?
Please check and decide.
I think it can be done.
Atul ji
rectification/addition of tag please…..

When we run option “list of song movie wise”, this song does not comes under the title of “Jaan Haazir hai” with another song of this movie “Hum na rahenge”, because you have not provided the tag for this post by its title, Please provide the tag “JAAN HAZIR HAI”

Thanks for pointing it now. Now I have corrected it.

Atul ji
