Lyrics

aa aa aa aa
amar hai jhaasi ki raani
amar hai jhaasi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani
jiska raaj aur rajdhaani

aazaadi ki pratham bhent thhi
aazaadi ki pratham bhent thhi

amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani

jis bharat mein bade bade ho gaye shoor balwaan
bhishm pitamah parshuraam arjun angad hanumaan
veer shivaaji chatrsaal raana praatap chauhan
raaja shri ranjeet singh se akbar se sultaan
usi desh ki aary desh ki thhi ye bhi santaan
aan nahin di shaan nahin di
de di apni jaan
aaj talak itihaas kah raha
khoob ladi mardaani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani

aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
swarg sidhaari vo veeraatma aa aa
swarg sidhaari vo veeraatma
dekar ye sandesh
dekar ye sandesh
jaan sabhi ko pyaari hai
par jaan se pyaara desh
jaan sabhi ko pyaari hai
par jaan se pyaara desh
dhany dhany buldelkhand hai
dhany hind ka paani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani

amar hai ae ae
jhaansi ki ee ee raani

‘Mere Jeewan Saathi-1972’ is well known for his music and its songs composed by R.D.Burman. Though the film was not that much successful as compared to other movies of the Superstar Rajesh Khanna at that time, its songs are still remembered and few of them have become timeless classics viz. ‘o mere dil ke chain’, ‘chalaa jaata hoon kisi dhoon mein’ etc.

I have no idea when it was for the first time that I heard this song under discussion. I may have listened to it for the first time on radio many years ago.

I have never watched this movie ‘Jaane Anjaane-1971’. The song that I associate this movie with is not this title song, but other better known songs viz. ‘teri neeli aankhon ke’ and later ‘chham chham baaje re payaliya’. I became familiar with these songs when when I got a compilation of songs recorded in 1987-98 that I labelled as ‘classical songs from Hindi movies’.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

A very belated Happy Diwali to all those who I missed to wish. Hope it was sweet and well lit for all. We are into the new Samvat and here is the first birthday.

We all know this birthday boy as a winner of 14 filmfare awards. He has a significant fan following in Asia and among the Indian Diasporas across the globe. He is one who dared to pick villainous roles early on in his career –something like say Vinod Khanna or Shatrughan Sinha of the previous generation. He is the pet of the film maker who is considered the king of romantic films in the current era. His paternal grandfather was a Pathan and the family moved to India post 1948. He grew up in Delhi and was educated from schools and colleges there but his road to fame and fortune began when he joined the Theatre Action Group and was mentored by Barry John. Oh yes I am speaking of Badshah alias Raj (naam toh suna hoga?) alias Rahul alias Shahrukh Kkkkhan –like the way he said KKKKiran in one of his early movies.

The Voice of Mukesh #70
– – – – – – – – – – – – –

This voice has such an alluring appeal. No matter what the song may be, Mukesh ji’s voice has the quality to enliven the song with the depth of his soulful emotion. The words come alive with his rendition. Listen to any of his songs, whether they have been popularized on account of association with successful films and actors, or they belong to obscure, unheard and unsuccessful films. His songs from many such films have remained obscure and unheard. For songs of Mukesh, the unexplored era is primarily in the 1970s.  There still are many songs sung by him, that have to find their place on this blog. Many of them are unfamiliar and obscure, and some are familiar but unheard for long.
