“Saloni” (1952) was directed by J P Advani for Goodluck pictures. This movie had Ashok Kumar, Nalini Jaywant, Purnima, Gulab, Mohana etc in it.

The movie had eight sons in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Saloni” (1952) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Arjun Dev Ashq is the lyricist. Music is composed by Basant Prakash.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Meri veena ke sur saat re (Saloni)(1952) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Arjun Dev Ashq, MD-Basant Prakash


meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
sur saat re man bhaat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat

pahle sur ne li angdaayi
bas gaya man mein harjaai
dooje sur baaje shahnaayi
dooje sur baaje shahnaayi
mil gayi man ko maat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat

teeje sur mein dil ki dhadkan
kaanp gaya bholi ka tan man
chauthhe sur mein baithha dekho
chauthhe sur mein baithha dekho
koi lagaaye ghaat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat

koi khada ye soch raha hai ae ae
koi khada ye soch raha hai
baaqi suron mein kya rakkha hai
soch sako to itna jaano
soch sako to itna jaano
badlenge din raat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat

It is a bit of a surprise for me that one of the songs which I had heard from my mother in my childhood was intact in my memory even though I had no occasion to listen to on the radio or watch on the TV thereafter. This is more so when I was engulfed on those days by the popular songs of the early 50s. As I came to know much later, this song was the most popular one attaining the tag of the highest sales of gramophone records for HMV in 1943. The song was ‘beena madhur madhur kachhubol’ from the film RAM RAJYA (1943). I was not aware of details of the song until I watched the video clip of the song for first time on YT few months back. Before that, I was under the impression that it was a non-filmy classical song.
