Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II) – Song No. 18
——————————————————
30/08/2020 – Birth anniversary of Shailendra

As children’s songs go, there is a healthy dose available of such songs in hindi films especially in the 50’s and 60’s. Or rather, I should say a healthy dose of children’s songs too along with the other types of songs be it religious songs, happy go lucky masti songs, romantic songs, sad songs, club/party songs, dance/folk/stage songs, road-side tamasha songs, comic songs and the philosophical/theme songs. Not to forget the lori/lullaby songs. Good quality songs were many and all the songs were made with painstaking care. So there is nothing like finding unheard songs. They may not remain in memory some months after the actual post is done, because the memory I find is a very fickle thing. It retains the information fed to it years ago, but is rather quick to do away with recently found and heard things. This is no fault of the songs concerned.

There are iconic songs like
‘nanhe munne bachche teri mutthi mein kya hai’, “naani teri morni ko mor le gaye” and
“Lakdi ki kaathhi kaathhi pe ghodaa” to name a few.

Two of three songs song which came to mind are written by Shailendra.

Here I found a children’s song from a the film ‘Deep jalte rahe” (1959), a duet by Rafi sahab with Vijaya, composed by Roshan-to commemorate the birth anniversary today of the lyricist Shailendra. He was a fourth pillar of the one of its kind winsome foursome of Shankar-Jaikishan-Shailendra-Hasrat Jaipuri. We see these names on many famous films credits. The team could not have been the legends they are without one another. Shailendra teamed up with other music directors also with notable success. A prime example is ‘Guide” with S. D. Burman.

Shankardas Kesarilal Shailendra was born on 30th August, 1923 and died on 14th December, 1966 at the age of just 43.

He is said to have died with heartbreak after the failure ‘Teesri Kasam” at the box office, a film close to his heart, also produced by him. Life is nothing if not full of obstacles. One needs to be full of strength to cross each hurdle. What should have been just such obstacle in Shailendra’s life, making him stronger for newer journey, turned out to be his last hurray. The film is a classic on its own, and plus the songs are pearls dotting the necklace of gold. I quote from one of the songs from the film, penned by Shailendra :

sitaaron ne munh pherkar
kaha alvida humsafar
chala kaarwaan ab chalaa
aa aa
aa bhi jaa
raat dhalne lagi
ho
chaand chhupne chala
ho
aa aa bhi jaa

oofaq par khadi hai sehar
andhera hai dil mein idhar
oofaq par khadi hai sehar
ho
andhera hain dil mein idhar
wahi roz ka silsila
aa
aa bhi jaa
raat dhalne lagi
chaand chhupne chala
ho
aa aa bhi jaa

Blog Day :

4414 Post No. : 15814

Today, August 18th 2020 is 86th Birth Day of the poet, lyricist, story, screen-play and dialogue writer, producer and director, Gulzar. His presence in Hindi film industries is an assurance that lovers of Hindi films and Hindi film songs would continue to get the opportunity to watch and listen to the meaningful films and songs. I regard Gulzar Saab as an extension of what Sahir Ludhianvi left in October 1980 – a legacy of poetry in Hindi film songs.

I have already covered a substantive information about the filmy career of Gulzar saab in my articles ae hairat-e-aashiqui jagaa mat on the occasion of his 85th birth day last year and in shaam se aankh mein nami si hai, abut 5 years back. Also, there is no dearth of information on Gulzar Saab on the internet, in the print media and his website. So, I would skip this part.

What a great journey Gulzar saab has with Hindi film industry which began in early 1960s as a lyricist. He became an assistant to Bimal Roy and eventually became a director with ‘Mere Apne’ (1971). During his almost six decades in Hindi film industry, he wrote nearly 700 songs, wrote screen-play/dialogues for nearly 50 films and directed 19 films. In addition, he wrote and directed a few TV serials like ‘Mirza Ghalib’(1988), ‘Noopur’ (1990), ‘Potli Baba Ki’ (1991), ‘Tehreer Munshi Premchand Ki’ (2004) etc. He published many novels, short stories and collections of his poems. Of late, Gulzar saab has been busy with translating in Hindi, poems in regional languages from all over India for their wider dessimination.

On the occasion of 86th birth day of Gulzar Saab, I have chosen a song of a rare combination – Gulzar-Suman Kalyanpur-Shankar-Jaikishan. The song is ‘ek thhi nindiya do thhe naina’ from the film ‘Seema’ (1971). Probably, Gulzar saab got involved in writing the lyrics of a couple of songs in this film as he was the story-screen-play-dialogue writer for the film. Surendra Mohan made his debut as a director in this film. The film was produced by Sohanlal Kanwar. The story of the film is summarised below:

Seema (Simi Garewal) has lost her parents in her childhood and she has been brought up by her caring uncle (Abhi Bhattacharya). In her grown-up years, Seema develops a superstition that whoever loved her would get the same fate as her parents. She spends her time mostly alone except with a friend, Rajni (Kanchan) who tries to erase her superstition by saying that she is still alive despite Seema loving her but of no avail.

Seema’s life gets a change when she come across a charming Sunil (Kabir Bedi). But her superstition will not allow her to reciprocate his love. He convinces her to overcome her fear and they get married in a temple. Unfortunately, after few days, Sunil dies in an accident and the fear of superstition returns to Seema as she is pregnant with his child in the womb. She gives birth to Banke (Rakesh Roshan) in secrecy as the society does not know of her marriage to Sunil. The child is brought up by her maid (Chand Usmani) who is kept away from Seema’s home out of fear of losing her child. However, Seema keeps the tab over her son’s activities from a distance.

Banke grows up cosying with Chamki (Bharathi) and also trying to discover as to who his parents are. After a lot of poignant moments in the film, it is Rajni who eventually reveals to Banke that Seema is his mother and his father had died of accident. Seema embraces Banke thus giving up her superstitions.

The song under discussion is a lori which have been picturised in the film on two occasions. First, Suman Kalyanpur sings for Simi on piano. The second, Sushma Shreshta sings for the boy which is taken over by Suman Kalyanpur singing for Chand Usmani as a continuation of the lori. In the audio clip, the entire lori is sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

‘Seema’ (1971) was Jaikishan’s last film. He died while the film was in the making.

Six songs were posted on 13.08.2010 from six movies viz. ‘Mela-1948’, ‘Kohinoor-1960’, ‘Bandini-1963’,‘Shaheed-1965’, ‘Daadi Maa-1966’, and ‘Aankhon Aankhon Mein-1972’ in chronologically ascending order.

A good variety of popular song, including musical gems were covered on that day.

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Gham ka fasaanaa kisko sunaayen Mela-1948 All songs covered
Do sitaaron ka zameen par hai milan aaj ki raat Kohinoor-1960 All songs covered
O panchhi pyaare saanjh sakhaare Bandini-1963 All songs covered

Chale aaye re ham to Daadi Maa-1967 03 songs posted
Aankhon aankhon mein baat hone do Aankhon Aankhon Mein-1972 All songs covered

Out of the six movies represented five movies have already been covered with all their songs on the blog and they have attained ‘Yippeeeeee’ status on the blog.

That leaves us with only one movie ‘Daadi Maa-1966’, which is eligible for the blog ten year challenge today.

‘Daadi Maa-1966’ had seven songs and eight sound tracks including the ‘title music track’. All the seven songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music was composed by Roshan. Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor, Puran, Asha Bhonsle, and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

So far, the following three songs from ‘Daadi Maa-1966’ have been covered on the blog;

Song Posted On
Usko nahin dekha hamne kabhi 27.01.2009
Jaataa hoon main mujhe ab naa bulaanaa 10.06.2010
Chale aaye re ham to 13.08.2010

We can see that the above three songs include two well known songs from this movie viz. Usko nahin dekha hamne kabhi and Jaataa hoon main mujhe ab naa bulaanaa. These two songs are the only songs I am familiar with and I associate these songs with the movie. I don’t remember to have listened to other songs of this movie.

Today’s song is a ‘lorie’ songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar and lip-synced on screen by Beena Rai.

Also seen in the picturization of this song is Shashikala.

I remember that the heart touching cute lorie ‘nanhi kali sone chali hawaa dheere aanaa’ sung by Geeta Dutt used to trend on ‘top’ in the list of ‘Top Posts’ visited on the blog from 2012 till 2014.

Let us now listen to today’s ‘lorie’ song written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Roshan.

Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

“Aanchal Ke Phool”(1968) was directed by Karunesh Thakur for MRS Film production, Bombay. The movie had Sajjan, Kamini Kaushal, Jeevan, Chand Usmani, Sunder, Mohan Choti,Namrata, Jayant, Ulhas, Jagdish Raj etc. in it.

This boring tearjerker movie with an uninteresting story line had four songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the third song from “Aanchal Ke Phool”(1968) to appear in the blog. This song is a sad lullaby song. It is sung by Krishna Kalle. Naqsh llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ved Sethi.

The song is picturised on Kamini Kaushal and on kids that I am unable to identify. Sajjan is also visible playing the hapless father. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

Lyrics

Blog Day :

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 45
——————————————————————————————

The date today 22 september 2019. It is a sunday.

Ten years ago, this date (22 september 2009) was a working day. I was in Nagpur, Maharashtra. Despite that day being a working day, I had covered as many as eight songs on that day. Posting six or more songs in a day used to be no big deal for me.

Here are the details of the eight songs that were covered on 22 september 2009.

Song (Movie title) Year Posting time Remarks
Aandhiyaan gham ki yoon chalin (Zeenat) 1945 1:29 All Songs covered on the blog
Wo marne se nahin darte (Shama Parwaana) 1954 2:19 All Songs covered on the blog
Bahaaye chaand ne aansoo (Lagan) 1955 5:00 TWO/out of Eight songs covered
Ritu aaye ritu jaaye (Hamdard) 1953 5:38 All Songs covered on the blog
Mujh ko tum jo mil gaye (Detective) 1958 7:10 Seven/out of Eight songs covered
Idhar to haath la pyaare (Aakhri Daao) 1958 7:59 All Songs covered on the blog
Bahaaron se poochho (Mera Ghar Mere Bachche) 1960 8:11 Five/out of Nine songs covered
Dharti 1970 8:34 All Songs covered on the blog

As can be noticed, I was awake till 2:19 AM after midnight and I had already posted two songs for the day. They I went back to sleep and woke up before 5 AM. Then I posted six more songs. The eights and final song for the day was posted at 8:24 AM !

Those were the days when I could post eight songs in a day by early morning ! What productivity ! 🙂

I hardly slept those days and that did not even affect my health. My wife, whenever she would join me would make adverse comments about my tendency to sleep less. Her persistent nagging may have finally borne fruit because these days I neither keep awake that late nor do I wake up so early. And I no longer post that many songs in a day. I actually wonder now how I was that motivated one decade ago.

By contrast from ten years ago, today (22 september 2019)I have so far posted just one post.

Here is the second song from the day, when it is already evening. This song is part of the blog ten year challenge. As can be seen from the table above, four out of eight movies have been YIPPEED by now. So only the remaining movies can be taken up for this ten year challenge.

The song taken up for this challenge is from “Lagan”(1955). This movie was produced by directed by O P Dutta for O P Films, Bombay. The movie had Nalini Jaiwant, Sajjan, Shammi, Randheer, Raj Mehra, Baby Naaz, Pappu, Om Prakash, Shamlal, Ram Avtar, Baij Sharma, Pt Iqbal, Shivrj, Uma Dutt, Parshuram, Kanwar Kesho etc , with guest appearance by David.

The song under discussion is the third song out of eight songs that this movie has.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricisr. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Only the audio of this song is available. The song appears to be a lullaby song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Mukesh and his Composers – 19
————————————
chaahe kahin bhi tum raho,
chaahenge tumko umr bhar
tumko na bhool paayenge

Remembering Mukesh on his 96th birth anniversary (22 July 1923 to 27 August 1976).

A life and career spent on entertaining music lovers all over the world, the very mention of his name brings to the mind several of his priceless renditions. A voice which remains active on air-waves to this day and beyond. More than being on the air-waves and various technological formats, it is the legacy and remembrance of the familiar voice that continues to dwell in the hearts of music lovers. A voice so familiar that it directly conveys to our hearts the feelings expressed in his songs.

For this post, I have taken the liberty of using material and information provided by many fellow blog contributors as well as Shri Harish ji.

It all started when Sadandand ji posted a comment on this post of Sudhir ji in his rather elaborate and highly researched series on missing films and songs of the 60’s which was given to him as a homework. Sadanand ji in the comments section of the aforesaid post has provided quality information and the video link of the song. The fact that Mukesh had sung a solo for MGR made me sit up and take notice. I had heard the song but was not aware that it was featured on MGR.

I was under the impression that it could be the only song sung by Mukesh for MGR. So I asked our Sudhir ji if he could send me the list of Hindi films in which MGR had acted. His prompt and detailed reply was as follows,

Year Movie
1951 Ek Tha Raja
1956 Gul e Bakaavali
1961 Baghdad
1962 Hamen Bhi Jeene Do
1962 Meri Bahen
1963 Raj Mahal
1965 Nartaki Chitra
1970 Koi Ghulam Nahin
1974 Aakhiri Nishaan
1975 Rangeen Duniya
1976 Love in Kashmir
1970s Ganga Ki God Mein (Unreleased)

A dozen films which included an unreleased film. Going through the list, one finds that the very first Hindi film in which MGR acted has a duet of Mukesh with Shamshad Begum. I am not sure if Mukesh sang for MGR in the duet, but it appears that the song under discussion is his only solo for MGR.

However, this post is on the collaboration of Mukesh with composer Dhaniram about whom very less material is available on the net. Shri Arunkumar ji helped me in sending the web-link of one of his interviews and it can be found here.

I have come across Dhaniram’s name many years back as two of his songs sung by Talat Mahmood are my personal favourites. They are Yeh Kya Hai Dhang Zamane Ka and aao baadal chain se royen.

The one from Dak Babu(1954) is simply out of the world. I request readers to listen to this composition and rendition by Talat Mahmood and especially the lines.

aye dil aisi mehfil se to
behtar tanhaai hai

One can only ask, where are those days and where are those people who created such majesties.

Coming back to Mukesh-Dhaniram, the present song appears to be their only collaboration and hence there will be no table. (But, then there is always a possibility of tracing obscure songs…)

The present film Meri Behan (1962) starring MGR was the dubbed version of the Tamil film ‘Aransilankumari’ (1961) as confirmed by Sadanand ji.

Now some interesting trivia.

Mere Behan (1962) was based on Tamil film Aransilankumari (1961).

Aransilankumari (1961) was based on 1952 Hollywood film Scaramouche.

Scaramouche (1952) in turn is based on the novel with the same title by Rafael Sabatini.

The novel by Rafael Sabatini is based on story set during the French revolution.

So, the conclusion can be deduced that our own Mere Behan (1962) was based on French Revolution. ?

Since I could trace very little to write on Dhaniram and considering the fact that Mukesh has a solitary song for the composer, I have probably failed to do justice to the post and the composer.

I am however glad to present this solo number sung by Mukesh for the great MGR. I thank Sadanand ji, Arunkumar ji, Harish ji, Sudhir ji and Atul ji for having given me this opportunity to present the song.

The post is a tribute to Mukesh on his birth anniversary for his voice has become an inseparable part of our lives which he himself had said in one of his songs…

chaahe raho jaa kar kahin
paaoge tum mujhko wahin
ki band gar aankhen zaraa
main khwaab ban kar aaunga


Song-Nanhe munne nanhe munne laal desh ke (Meri Bahan)(1962) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Pt Indra Chandra, MD-Dhaniram

Lyrics

nanhe munne
nanne munne
laal desh ke
nanhe munne

baat cheet ki
ise maan le re
ismein maan le

bade hoke manzil par tum

bagiya ke liye re ae
bagiya ke liye
phool ho tum duniya ki
bagiya ke liye re ae
bagiya ke liye
nanhe munne

neem ped ooncha dikha

rakhna khud pe bharosa

phailaayenge ye jhoothh
kabhi na maan’na re
beza aisi baat na inki

le tujh se boloon
baat seekh ki
ise maan le re
ismein maan le
nanhe munne

Missing Films of 1960s – 85
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The next in this series is a religious film from 1970. Yes, the times were when this genre of films had a serious following, and the producers in the industry would be creating films in this category. Today’s film, ‘Shri Krishna Leela’ is from the house of Wadia’s, under their banner of Basant Pictures. As we review the data about film production under this banner, we find that this has been one of the very active production houses over the decades. [Note: I am examining the data in the Geet Kosh from 1931 to 1980 only.]

Over the years, Wadia film production company went about its business under the names as – Wadia Brothers, Wadia Brothers Productions, Wadia Films and Wadia Movietone. Collectively, these banners have been active since 1933 till the year 1971, having produced 50+ films in various genres – social, stunt, religious, mythical, costume dramas, historical etc. In 1943, the company launched another banner, named Basant Pictures. As we scan their list of films, once again we find slight variations in the banner names as – Basant Pictures, Basant Pictures (Wadia Brothers) and Basant Wadia Brothers Production. Collectively, this banner has a listing of about 60 films between 1943 and 1980. The films in this list also cover just the same set of film genres.

A brief about the House of Wadia. The ancestors of this Parsi family originally settled in Surat after migrating from Persia. The original business of Wadia family was shipbuilding. The logo of Wadia Movietone prominently carries an image of a ship – it is a representation of their origins – the legacy business that started off their fortunes. The Wadia Group’s shipbuilding business was set up in 1736 by Lowjee Nuserwanjee Wadia. Later during that century, the group shifted its base from Surat to Bombay. They built trading ships, and later in 1800s they build maritime vessels for the Royal Navy (Great Britain).

Wadia Movietone was founded in 1933 by the brothers – JBH Wadia and Homi Wadia. JBH Wadia (born 1901) was a very well educated young man, who came into the film industry in the closing years of silent cinema. He produced about a dozen silent films, with moderate success. His productions were mostly adaptations of successful Hollywood productions of that era.

The other co-founders were Manchersha Billimoria, and Burjore and Nadirshaw Tata. Their first film – ‘Laal e Yaman’ (1933) was a major commercial success. In 1935, the company produced ‘Hunterwali’ with Nadia in the title role, along with Boman Shroff and John Cawas in prominent roles. This film became a surprise hit, bringing in a huge commercial windfall for the company. In the process, it set a trend which was duplicated by Wadias themselves and also copied by many other production houses. In 1936 came ‘Miss Frontier Mail’, followed by ‘Lutaru Lalna’ in 1938, ‘Punjab Mail’ in 1939, ‘Diamond Queen’ in 1940, and ‘Bambaiwali’ in 1941. However, by this time, the repeated use of the stunt formula lost its luster, and the company started facing losses. In 1936, the Tata brothers had already moved out from the partnership. In 1942, the Wadia Movietone studio was put up for sale. V Shantaram, who was moving out of Prabhat at the same time, purchased this studio and set up his famous production house – Rajkamal Kalamandir, at this premises.

In 1942 itself, the younger brother, Homi Wadia, set up Basant Pictures as a new production house. He started producing films under this banner using studio facilities at other premises. In 1947, he eventually set up his own studio once again. Basant Studio was functional till 1981. In 1990, the studio was inherited by Riyad Vinci Wadia, the grandson of JBH Wadia. He revived film production once again under this banner. However, he too passed away in 2003. The studio now houses the Wadia Movietone and Basant Pictures archives and memorabilia collection.

The film ‘Shri Krishna Leela’ is directed by Homi Wadia. The star cast includes Master Sachin, Heena Kumari, Jaishri Gadkar, Sapru, Manhar Desai, Kumar Dighe, Deepak, Tabassum, Ratnamala, Padmarani, Uma Dutt, Shekhar, Master Bobby, Master Ratan, Tuntun, Babu Raje, Habeeb, Dalpat, H Prakash, and Prince Arjun. The songs of this film are penned by Bharat Vyas and the music is from the mind of SN Tripathi.

Today’s song is a lullaby, in the voice of Asha Bhosle. On screen, the song is performed by Jaishree Gadkar, in the role of Maa Yashoda, as she is crooning to put the infant Krishna to sleep. Close to the end of this clip, we see a little more grown up child Krishna, role played by Master Sachin.

A wonderfully soothing melody. . . listen, and relax.

Song – Palkon Ka Palna Nainon Ki Dori  (Shri Krishna Leela) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – SN Tripathi

Lullaby was a much loved genre of songs in HFM during its golden era. Majority of lullabies are naturally sung by female singers and picturised on females playing mother to their young ones. The blog has 107 lullabies sung by 18 female singers (and a few male singers as well). Lata Mangeshkar dominates this genre. She has lent her voice in as many as 43 lullabies. Asha Bhonsle is a distant second with 13 lullabies. No other singer is in double figures and that includes legendary female singers like Khursheed Bano, Amirbai Karnataki, Rajkumari, Suraiyya, Geeta Dutt, Suman Kalyanpur etc.

Here is another lullaby song from HFM. This song is from “Aandhi Aur Toofaan”(1964).

“Aandhi Aur Toofaan”(1964) was directed by Mohammad Hussain for Kamran Films, Bombay. This “stunt” movie had Dara Singh, Mumtaz, Kamran, Jeewan, Ratanmala, Amar, Bhagwan, Anjum, Leela, Uma Dutt, Habeeb, Laxmi Chhaaya, Kamal Mohan, Munshi Munaqqa, Qamar, Fajlu, Mustafa, Khursheed, Anand, Arvind Kumar, Balram, Prem, Bihari, Moolchand, Sabir, Maula, Azam, Dawood, Ismail, Honey Irani, Saleem, Hercules etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

This lullaby song is sung by Mubarak Begam. It is the first lullaby song sung by her to appear in the blog. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

The picturisation shows a mother singing this lullaby to her twin kids. I am unable to identify the lady. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

This movie is from 1964 and I cannot help feel that the kids seen in the picturisation must have been in the same age group as a few of our regulars including myself. 🙂

“Bezubaan”(1962) was directed by Ram Kamlani for Gope Productions, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Nirupa Roy, David, Helen, Vishwa Mehra, Shammi, Ishwar Lal, Paro, Jamal, Genius, Umesh Sharma, Ramesh Rai, Baby Anita, Kathana, Prem Sagar, Rammurti, Hamid, Majnu etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Bezubaan”(1962) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Picturisation shows Nirupa Roy with Baby Anita, who have been thrown out of home by Ashok Kumar. The kid, too young to realise what is going on, wonders why her father is not with them. Nirupa Roy tries to put the kid to sleep by singing this “story” song which also doubles up as a lullaby.


Song-Ek thha raaja ek thhi raani ek thha raajkumaar (Bezubaan)(1962) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
ek thha raaja
ek thhi raani ek thha raajkumaar
pyaar bhari thhi duniya unki
sukh se bhara ghar baar
raaja ke man me ik din jaane kaisa lobh samaaya
bhool gaya wo pyaar ke naate
dekh ke jhoothi maaya
raaja nikla desh paraaye
laane heere moti
tab se pukaare saanjh sakhaare
raani roti roti
aaja re aaja
pardesi raaja
munna tujhko bulaaye
ro ro ke haari raani bechaari
munne ko neend na aaye

mujhse to tum roothhe sahi
bhoole ho munne ka pyaar kya
mujhse to tum roothhe sahi
bhoole ho munne ka pyaar kya
pahunchi nahin kaanon talak
nanhe si dil ki pukaar kya
aaja re aaja
pardesi raaja
munna tujhko bulaaye
ro ro ke haari raani bechaari
munne ko neend na aaye

kehta hai dil
aaoge tum
sone ki nagri ke paar se
kehta hai dil
aaoge tum
sone ki nagri ke paar se
hoti nahin daulat badi
sacche dilon ke pyaar se
aaja re aaja
pardesi raaja
munna tujhko bulaaye
ro ro ke haari raani bechaari
munne ko neend na aaye
