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

I came across this beautiful unknown song just today. It is from the movie Sautela Bhai starring Guru Dutt and Raaj Kumar. The beautiful song is set to music by Anil Biswas and the peppy lyrics are by Shailendra. There is almost a mathematical precision to the way the song is arranged, the singers and the chorus sing in a set pattern, after listening to one paragraph you know exactly who is going to sing the refrain, and when the chorus is going to repeat lines. Such patterns are usual in good poetry, and it enhances the rhythm of this song too. A special word for fantastic singing by Manna Dey and Meena Kapoor. Meena’s voice sounds so rich and full, like Geeta Dutt’s. She complements Manna Dey’s amazing voice perfectly.
