This post is 501st post by Sadanand Ji. Due to a tagging error, we all missed the event of 500th post by him (his previous post).

In the early part of the golden era of Hindi film music, there were many films which were box office disasters. These films got released but vanished from the theatres quickly. These films also got ‘erased’ from the memories of the film audience of that time except those who had interest in Hindi film history. Some of such obscure films had the treasures of melodious songs.

If I confine myself to the first half of 1950, I get quite a good numbers such obscure films having melodious songs. Some of such films were ‘Adaa’ (1951, Madan Mohan), ‘Malati Madhav’ (1951, Sudhir Phadke), ‘Ghunghroo’ (1952, C Ramchandra), ‘Nirmohi’ (1952, Madan Mohan), ‘Raag Rang’ (1952, Roshan), ‘Baaghi’ (1953, Madan Mohan), ‘Fareb’ (1953, Anil Biswas), ‘Jhaanjhar’ (1953, C Ramchandra), ‘Chor Baazar’ (1954, Sardar Malik), ‘Naaz’ (1954, Anil Biswas), ‘Rishta’ (1954, K Datta), ‘Garam Coat’ (1955, Amarnath Chawla), ‘Madhur Milan’ (1955, Bulo C Rani) etc. The list is not exhaustive.

These obscure films of early 1950s had the adverse impact on the careers of some of the music directors for no faults of theirs. The then upcoming music directors like Madan Mohan and Roshan had to struggle hard to establish themselves in the film industry. Like-wise, the already established music directors like Anil Biswas and Bulo C Rani had difficulties in retaining their positions in the film industry.

‘Maan’ (1954) was one such film which had very melodious songs from the baton of Anil Biswas. The film was directed by Dr Safdar Aah Sitapuri, a well-known lyricist, and screen play/dialogue writers of 1930s and 40s. This was his second and the last directorial venture, the first being ‘Bhook’ (1947). The star cast included Ajit, Chitra, Gajanan Jagirdar, Durga Khote, M Kumar, Achala Sachdev, Kamlesh Kumari, Yashodara Katju, Chandabai etc. The film belongs to the costume drama genre.

Dr.Safdar Aah Sitapuri was a Urdu laureate. He started his career in the Hindi film industry sometime in 1930s, probably with Mohan Pictures. He worked with Anil Biswas for the first time in ‘Comrades’ (1939) made under the banner of Sagar Movietone followed by ‘Alibaba’ (1940) and ‘Aurat’ (1940).

When Sagar Movietone was merged with General Films and renamed as National Studios in 1940, Dr Safdar Aah Sitapuri and Anil Biswas shifted to this banner. Under National Studio Banner, Dr Safdar Aah Sitapuri worked with Anil Biswas in films like ‘Aasra’ (1941), ‘Bahen’ (1941), ‘Nai Roshni’ (1941), ‘Roti’ (1942) etc. After Anil Biswas joined Bombay Talkies in 1942, he had to work with lyricists which were already in the pay roll with the banner. So he had no chance of working with Dr Safdar Sitapuri in Bombay Talkies but worked with lyricists Pt. Narendra Sharma and Kavi Pradeep among others.

After a gap of about 3 years, Dr. Safdar Aah Sitapuri got the opportunity to work with Anil Biswas for the film ‘Pehli Nazar’ (1945) in which he wrote, among other songs, “Dil Jaltaa Hai To Jalne De” and Mukesh sang from his heart to make the song an iconic one. Thereafter Dr.Safdar Aah Sitapuri had worked with Anil Biswas in films like ‘Laadli’ (1949), ‘Laajawaab’ (1950), ‘Badi Bahu’ (1951), ‘Naaz’ (1954) and ‘Maan’ (1954) which was his last film as the director and I guess, it was also his last film as a lyricist.

The information on the internet indicates that Dr Safdar Aah Sitapuri returned to his teaching profession sometime in the later 50s though it appears that he was involved with writing screen-play and dialogues for ‘Son Of India’ (1962). Post-retirement from the film industry, Dr, Safdar Aah Sitapuri wrote books like ‘Amir Khusro Bhaisiyat Hindi Shaayar’, ‘Rubiyaat-e-Zamzama’, ‘Tulsidas Aur Ramcharitmanas’. I came to know through internet a few years back that he was also a guide for students doing Ph.d in Urdu literature.

Coming back to Anil Biswas, I personally feel that after Lata Mangeshkar started singing for him from ‘Anokha Pyaar’ (1948) onwards, his song compositions attained a higher level of melody than what was earlier. For example, I find his song compositions in the film ‘Anokha Pyaar’ (1948) in which Lata Mangeshkar sang for him for the first time, superior to those in ‘Veena’ (1948) in which Lata Mangeshkar had no songs. Incidentally, stories of both these films revolved around love triangles.

I recall reading few years back that when Sardul Kwatra, the music director was asked as to how his compositions are so beautiful. His reply was that he got inspiration from the singers themselves to compose the beautiful songs. I think, Anil Biswas could compose some of the best soulful songs for Lata Mangeshkar because of her voice and the faster pick up of nuances of song compositions. This quality of her could inspire anyone to compose the songs for her better than their best.

Today, I am presenting one of the soulful songs ‘Guzraa Hua Ulfat Ka Zamaana Yaad Karke Royenge’ from the film ‘Maan’ (1954). The song is rendered by Lata Mangeshkar on the words of Dr. Safdar Aah Sitapuri.


Song – Guzra Hua Ulfat Ka Zamaana (Maan) (1954) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Safdar ‘Aah’ Sitapuri, MD – Anil Biswas

Lyrics

guzraa hua ulfat kaa zamaana
yaad karke royenge
yaad karke royenge
apni kahaani apna fasaana
yaad karke royenge
yaad karke royenge
guzraa huwa ulfat kaa zamaana
yaad karke royenge
yaad karke royenge

jab saawan ki mast ghataayen
dhoom machaati aayengi ee
jab saawan ki mast ghataayen
dhoom machaati aayengi  ee
jab koyal ki meethi taanen
kaanon mein bas jaayengi
ham ik bhoola hua taraana
yaad karke royenge
yaad karke royenge

kabhi kabhi jab tumko apne
dil kaa dard sunaate thhe
kabhi kabhi
kabhi kabhi jab tumko apne
dil kaa dard sunaate thhe
pyaar se dhaadas dekar saajan
hamko gale lagaate thhe
wahi pyaar se gale lagaana
yaad karke royenge
yaad karke royenge
guzraa hua ulfat kaa zamaana
yaad karke royenge
yaad karke royenge

गुज़रा हुआ उल्फ़त का ज़माना
याद करके रोएँगे
याद करके रोएँगे
अपनी कहानी अपना फसाना
याद करके रोएँगे
याद करके रोएँगे
गुज़रा हुआ उल्फ़त का ज़माना
याद करके रोएँगे
याद करके रोएँगे

जब सावन की मस्त घटाएँ
धूम मचाती आएंगी
जब सावन की मस्त घटाएँ
धूम मचाती आएंगी
जब कोयल की मीठी तानें
कानों में बस जाएंगी
हम इक भुला हुआ तराना
याद करके रोएँगे
याद करके रोएँगे

कभी कभी जब तुमको
अपने दिल का दर्द सुनाते थे
कभी कभी
कभी कभी जब तुमको
अपने दिल का दर्द सुनाते थे
प्यार से ढाढ़स दे कर साजन
हमको गले लगाते थे
वही प्यार से गले लगाना
याद करके रोएँगे
याद करके रोएँगे
गुज़रा हुआ उल्फ़त का ज़माना
याद करके रोएँगे
याद करके रोएँगे

“Majboori” (1954) was directed by Ram Daryani for Murli Movietone, Bombay. This forgotten movie had Balraj Sahani, Shyama, Gope, Kumar, Jeevan, Gulab, Pramila etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Majboori” (1954) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Chatterji.

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

When I began this blog all those years ago, I was not even aware of D N Madhok. So I felt quite proud of myself when D N Madhok reached 100 songs in the blog as a lyricist.

With this song, D N Madhok (22 october 1902- 9 july 1982) now completes 300 songs in the blog as a lyricist, a feat that I would not have believed possible in the past. But that has actually happened. D N Madhok becomes the 11th lyricist in the blog to have 300 or more songs in the blog. Seeing that he made his debut as a lyricist as far back as in 1932, he is the seniormost lyricist to have reached this figure in the blog.


Song-Ye bahta hua paani samjha raha hai (Majboori)(1954) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

ye bahta hua paani
samjha raha hai

kuchh ga raha hai

aa raha hai

jab tum hamaare
hum tumhare honge
jab tum hamaare
hum tumhare honge
munh se kuch na kahenge
ishaare honge
mera dil mujhse kahe ja raha hai
ke wo din aa raha hai
aa raha hai
ye udta hua panchchi
kuchh ga raha hai
ke wo din aa raha hai
aa raha hai

wo raaten wo baaten
wo ghaaten pyaar waali
wo raaten wo baaten
wo ghaaten pyaar waali
khaali khaali zindagi mein
lo aane lagi hariyaali
mera dil mujhse kahe ja raha hai
ke wo din aa raha hai
aa raha hai
ye udta hua panchchi
kuchh ga raha hai
ke wo din aa raha hai

o o o o

kaagaz ki naav kisne ae ae
kaagaz ki naav kisne
paani mein hai bahai
kisi toote hue dil ki
fariyad bahti aayi
kisi toote hue dil ki
fariyad bahti aayi
ishaara muhjko diya ja raha hai
ke wo din aa raha hai
aa raha hai
ye bahta hua paani
samjha raha hai

Song-Lagi aisi nahin dil ki (Gul Bahaar)(1954) Singer-Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, MD-Khayyam

Lyrics

lagi aisi nahin dil ki jo
aankhon se nazar aaye
chhupa le us ko palkon mein
koi aansoo agar aaye
lagi aisi nahin dil ki
jo aankhon se nazar aaye
chhupa le us ko palkon mein
koi aansoo agar aaye
lagi aisi nahin dil ki

koi aisa nahin duniya mein
jo samjhe jubaan dil ki
tu aa jaaye to main tujh ko
sunaaun daastaan dil ki
magar main kya karoon zaalim
na jab teri khabar aaye
lagi aisi nahin dil ki

jiyoon kis tarah
jab tu ne
mere dil ko mitaa daala
kafas ko bhi jala de
aashiyaana jab jalaa daala
arre o aasmaan waale
koi bigdi na (???) aaye
lagi aisi nahin dil ki

“Sadma”(1954) was produced by R G Khanna for Asiatic Productions, Bombay. That is all that HFGK mentions about this movie. We have no clue who were the actors in this movie. We are not even sure how many songs this movie had though HFGK lists muj=khdas of seven songs from this movie.

Here is one highly obscure song from this extremely obscure movie. This song is sung by Kalindi Keskar. Lyrics are by T Ram-Dewan. Music is composed by Shankar Dasgupta.

I have failed to get lots of words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections in the lyrics as applicable.

With this song, “Sadma”(1954) makes its debut in the blog.

With this song, singer Kalindi Keskar and lyricist T Ram Dewan also make their debuts in the blog. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on these artists.

As many as 117 movies were released in 1954. “Sadma”(1954) becomes the 100th movie of 1954 to find representation in the blog. With this, the year 1954 becomes the sixth such year after 1949, 1955, 1956, 1958 and 1959 that have the distinction of having songs from 100 or more movies represented in the blog.


Song-Meri barbaadiyon pe (Sadma)(1954) Singer-Kalindi Keskar, Lyrics-T Ram Dewan, MD-Shankar Dasgupta

Lyrics

Meri barbaadiyon pe
mere janaaze ??
meri barbaadiyon pe
gehre zakhmon se
?? nishaani
meri barbaadiyon ke

dil ki dhadkan mein ham
dard chhupaate hain
aa aa aa aa aa
ham ashq bahaate hain
ham ashq bahaate hain

koi nahin hai hamdam
ham khud ko manaate hain
ranjo gham se aaj ham
dil ki bujhaate hain
?? ke
?? ko lagaane ae ae
meri barbaadiyon pe

ham uske kareeb ?
?? muqaddar ka
jo din guzarta hai ae
wo din hai dar guzar ka
yoon hi to dil ?? ke
dil hain mitaane ae ae
meri barbaadiyon pe

Wow, what a song, what a lovely song, what a lovely marathon of a song; so full of words, so full of emotions, so full of insistence of emotions. Rajendra Krishan has outdone himself in writing this song. And so does C Ram, outshine himself in tying this song into threads of music. And what rendition, Lata ji outshines herself. I am hearing this song for the first time today, and have simply fallen in love with it.

The film is ‘Meenaar’ from 1954. As Atul ji and I exchanged notes about films close to ‘Yippeee’, this film turned up with two songs still to be posted, as per the listing in the Geet Kosh. As I started to explore this film and its songs, it turns out that the two pending songs are actually two parts of the same song. When I checked Geet Kosh for details, I found that these two ‘parts’ of the song are actually residing on the same 78 rpm record, further confirming that these are actually parts of one very long song.

Further searching on the YT, I am able to locate an edited composite video clip that is probably made up of three or maybe four parts – the number of times this song appears in the film, making this a multi part song.

I have not seen this film, but as I watched and played this clip multiple times to write down the lyrics, I get feeling of having encountered this theme and this scenario more than once. Listening and viewing this song brings to the mind snatches of the haunting strains of “Aayega Aayega, Aayega Aanewaala” (from ‘Mahal’ (1949)), “Naina Barsen Rim Jhim Rim Jhim” (from ‘Wo Kaun Thi’ (1964)), “Kahin Deep Jaley Kahin Dil” (from ‘Bees Saal Baad’ (1962)) and more. Watching the video brings in tremors of scenes from ‘Madhumati’ (1958), ‘Mera Saaya’ (1966), ‘Kudrat’ (1981) etc., giving a glimpse into the story line of this film. I would request other knowledgeable readers and friends who may have seen this film, to please comment on the theme and the story line of this film.

On screen this song is presented mostly as a background song, with a couple of places where one can see Beena Rai lip syncing the words in the playback.

And with this composite representation of this multi part song, the film ‘Meenaar’ now joins the ranks of films with all songs posted on our blog. Time to callout ‘Yippeee’ . . .

Song – Barbaad e Mohabbat Ko Kab Tak Ye Sazaa Dogey (Meenaar) (1954) Singer – Lata MangeshkarLyrics – Rajendra Krishan, MD – C Ramchandra

Lyrics

dil e betaab dhadakta hai
dikhaayen kaise
ik shola sa bhadaktaa hai
bujhaayen kaise
ya mere saamne aa
ya mujhe awaaz de
ya bataa de main ye parda uthaaun kaise

barbaad e mohabbat ko
kab tak ye sazaa dogey
barbaad e mohabbat ko
kab tak ye sazaa dogey
na saamne aaoge
na apna pataa dogey
barbaad e mohabbat ko

poochho to zara dil se
main kaun hoon aur kya hoon
toota hua taara hoon
sookha hua dariya hoon
ghaayal ki tadap hoon main
ghaayal ki tadap hoon main
bismil ki tamanna hoon
tum shakl ho us shay ki
jis shay ka main saaya hoon
tum shakl ho us shay ki
jis shay ka main saaya hoon
socha bhi na tha ik din
tum dil se bhula dogey
na saamne aaoge
na apna pataa dogey
barbaad e mohabbat ko

ik roz basaaya tha
tum ne hi jahaan mera
raaten thi mohabbat ki
har din tha jawaan mera
main tum se bichhad ke bhi
main tum se bichhad ke bhi
kuchh door nahin tum se
dekhoge agar dil mein
paaoge nishaan mera
dekhoge agar dil mein
paaoge nishaan mera
laut aayengi yaadein jab
maazi ko sadaa dogey
na saamne aaoge
na apna pataa dogey
barbaad e mohabbat ko

barbaad e mohabbat ko
kab tak ye sazaa dogey
na saamne aaoge
na apna pataa dogey
barbaad e mohabbat ko

dum bhar ke liye thehro
sun lo mera afsaana
yun shamma talak aa kar
jaata nahin parwaana
beeti hui ghadiyon ko
zaraa dohraayen
beeti hui ghadiyon ko
zaraa dohraayen
ik raat ka kiss hai
kal subah chaley jaana
ik raat ka kiss hai
kal subah chaley jaana
bigdega tumhaara kya
bigdi jo banaa dogey
na saamne aaoge
na apna pataa dogey
barbaad e mohabbat ko

barbaad e mohabbat ko
kab tak ye sazaa dogey
na saamne aaoge
na apna pataa dogey
barbaad e mohabbat ko

ye raat ye khaamoshi
ye chaand ye tanhaai
aise mein seenon mein
bajti hui shehnaai
maano to haqeeqat hai
na maano to afsaana
maano to haqeeqat hai
na maano to afsaana
jaago to zaraa zaalim
dekho main chali aayi
jaago to zaraa zaalim
dekho main chali aayi
na meri wafaaon ke
badle mein wafaa dogey
na saamne aaoge
na apna pataa dogey
barbaad e mohabbat ko

barbaad e mohabbat ko
kab tak ye sazaa dogey
na saamne aaoge
na apna pataa dogey
barbaad e mohabbat ko

kuchh dard e mohabbat ki
tum ko bhi khabar hogi
chanda ki chakori par
kab tak na nazar hogi
nazron se meri chhup kar
nazron se meri chhup kar
jaana bada mushkil hai
jaaoge to is shab ki
mushkil se sehar hogi
jaaoge to is shab ki
mushkil se sehar hogi
aakhir mujhe pehlu mein
kab tak na jageh dogey
na saamne aaoge
na apna pataa dogey
barbaad e mohabbat ko

दिल ए बेताब धड़कता है
दिखाएँ कैसे
इक शोला सा भड़कता है
बुझाएँ कैसे
या मेरे सामने आ
या मुझे आवाज़ दे
या बता दे मैं पर्दा उठाऊँ कैसे

बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को
कब तक ये सज़ा दोगे
बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को
कब तक ये सज़ा दोगे
ना सामने आओगे
ना अपना पता दोगे
बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को

पूछो तो ज़रा दिल से
मैं कौन हूँ और क्या हूँ
टूटा हुआ तारा हूँ
सूखा हुआ दरिया हूँ
घायल की तड़प हूँ मैं
घायल की तड़प हूँ मैं
बिस्मिल की तमन्ना हूँ
तुम शक्ल हो उस शै की
जिस शै का मैं साया हूँ
तुम शक्ल हो उस शै की
जिस शै का मैं साया हूँ
सोचा भी ना था इक दिन
तुम दिल से भुला दोगे
ना सामने आओगे
ना अपना पता दोगे
बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को

इक रोज़ बसाया था
तुमने ही जहां मेरा
रातें थी मोहब्बत की
हर दिन था जवां मेरा
मैं तुम से बिछड़ के भी
मैं तुम से बिछड़ के भी
कुछ दूर नहीं तुमसे
देखोगे अगर दिल में
पाओगे निशां मेरा
लौट आएंगी यादें जब
माज़ी को सदा दोगे
ना सामने आओगे
ना अपना पता दोगे
बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को

बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को
कब तक ये सज़ा दोगे
ना सामने आओगे
ना अपना पता दोगे
बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को

दम भर के लिए ठहरो
सुन लो मेरा अफसाना
यूं शम्मा तलक आ कर
जाता नहीं परवाना
बीती हुई घड़ीयों को
ज़रा दोहराएँ
बीती हुई घड़ीयों को
ज़रा दोहराएँ
बीती हुई घड़ीयों को
ज़रा दोहराएँ
इक रात का किस्सा है
कल सुबह चले जाना
बिगड़ेगा तुम्हारा क्या
बिगड़ी जो बना दोगे
ना सामने आओगे
ना अपना पता दोगे
बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को

बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को
कब तक ये सज़ा दोगे
ना सामने आओगे
ना अपना पता दोगे
बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को

ये रात ये खामोशी
ये चाँद ये तनहाई
ऐसे में सीनों में
बजती हुई शहनाई
मानो तो हक़ीक़त है
ना मानो तो अफसाना
जागो तो ज़रा जालिम
देखो मैं चली आई
जागो तो ज़रा जालिम
देखो मैं चली आई
ना मेरी वफाओं के
बदले में वफा दोगे
ना सामने आओगे
ना अपना पता दोगे
बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को

बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को
कब तक ये सज़ा दोगे
ना सामने आओगे
ना अपना पता दोगे
बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को

कुछ दर्द ए मोहब्बत की
तुमको भी खबर होगी
चंदा की चकोरी पर
कब तक ना नज़र होगी
नज़रों से मेरी छुप कर
नज़रों से मेरी छुप कर
जाना बड़ा मुश्किल है
जाओगे तो इस शब की
मुश्किल से सहर होगी
जाओगे तो इस शब की
मुश्किल से सहर होगी
आखिर मुझे पहलू में
कब तक ना जगह दोगे
ना सामने आओगे
ना अपना पता दोगे
बरबाद ए मोहब्बत को

A film by name ‘Shobha’ is already present on our blog. That film is from the year 1942. As I was checking the film lists in the 1950s, I find that there is another film by the same name in the year 1954. This latter film is still to open its account on the blog. Well, that was just before this post came online. Today’s debut film is ‘Shobha’ from 1954.

Checking the Geet Kosh, I find the following details for this film. This film is a social drama, directed by Niren Lahiri, for the production banner of SB Productions, Bombay. The star cast includes Usha Kiran, Abhi Bhattacharya, Chhabi Biswas, Manju De, Shikha Bagh, Purnendu Mukherji, Rani Bannerji, Rekha Chatterji, Trilochan Jha, amongst others. Viewing the list of actors, gives me a feeling that majority of artists associated with this film are of Bangla origin. And there is more to it. The films is based on a story written by Sarat Chandra Chatterjee. And yes, the music director is Robin Chatterjee 🙂 . And yes, surely enough, as I tried to look for more information, I found one comment that says this film was simultaneously made in Hindi and Bengali, and that the name of the Bangla version is ‘Shubhada’.

The film has eight songs which are shared amongst two lyricists – Kaif Irfani and Mahendra Pran. This song is from the pen of Mahendra Pran. The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.

The song is a story song – actually a tota-maina story. The audio clip that I can locate for this song starts with the line that are captioned in the title. However, when I reference the Geet Kosh, this song has a couple of lead in lines, the first one of which reads – “Maina Boli Sun Re Totey, Aaj Hai Teri Baari…”. And as we come to the end of the song, one of last lines is “Maina Hans Ke Boli Sun Re Totey. . .”. So it seems like a story telling session, probably a mother telling a story to put a child to sleep. And the tale is told as the traditional story telling conversation between a ‘tota’ and a ‘maina’. I am sure few more film songs will blink on in the mind, which also are presented as a ‘tota – maina’ exchange.

So enjoy this simple and short story being told, about a princess who is lonely and sad, but then the prince charming appears on the scene, and they live happily ever after – well, almost precisely to that effect. 🙂

And yes, the 1954 film ‘Shobha’ makes its debut on our blog today.

Song – Hothon Par Fariyaad Chhupaaye Nainon Mein Barsaat (Shobha) (1954) Singer – Asha BhosleLyrics – Mahendra Pran, MD – Robin Chatterjee

Lyrics

hothon mein fariyaad chhupaaye
nainon mein barsaat
neel gagan ki rajkumari
roti thi din raat
hothon mein fariyaad chhupaaye
nainon mein barsaat
neel gagan ki rajkumari
roti thi din raat

sapnon ke toote mahalon mein
ujaley mein andhiyaara
bindiya na kaajal ghar mein
soona jeevan saara
sapnon ke toote mahalon mein
ujaley mein andhiyaara
bindiya na kaajal ghar mein
soona jeevan saara

aankhon se paani bhi rootha
rooth gaya bhagwan
kood padi gehre paani mein
dene apni jaan
aankhon se paani bhi rootha
rooth gaya bhagwan
kood padi gehre paani mein
dene apni jaan

saagar roya
lehren royin
behti nadi royee
saagar roya
lehren royin
behti nadi royee
dukhiaari ke mann ki peeda
jaan na paaya koi

roopnagar se ek salona
rajkumar jo aaya
aaa aaa aaa
roopnagar se ek salona
rajkumar jo aaya
neel kamal ka phool ek
lehron mein paaya

koelen kookeen
bhanwaron ne kaliyon ko geet sunaaye
koelen kookeen
bhanwaron ne kaliyon ko geet sunaaye
raja ne raani ke nainon se
pyaar bhare nain milaaye

chaand hasaa taare muskaaye
maina hans ke boli
sun re totey
des ko phaunchi jaa un ki doli
sun re totey
des ko phaunchi jaa un ki doli

होठों में फरियाद छुपाए
नैनों में बरसात
नील गगन की राजकुमारी
रोती थी दिन रात
होठों में फरियाद छुपाए
नैनों में बरसात
नील गगन की राजकुमारी
रोती थी दिन रात

सपनों के टूटे महलों में
उजले में अँधियारा
बिंदिया ना काजल घर में
सूना जीवन सारा
सपनों के टूटे महलों में
उजले में अँधियारा
बिंदिया ना काजल घर में
सूना जीवन सारा

आँखों से पानी भी रूठा
रूठ गया भगवान
कूद पड़ी गहरे पानी में
देने अपनी जान
आँखों से पानी भी रूठा
रूठ गया भगवान
कूद पड़ी गहरे पानी में
देने अपनी जान

सागर रोया
लहरें रोईं
बहती नदिया रोई
सागर रोया
लहरें रोईं
बहती नदिया रोई
दुखियारी के मन की पीड़ा
जान ना पाया कोई

रूपनगर से एक सलोना
राजकुमार जो आया
आ आ आ
रूपनगर से एक सलोना
राजकुमार जो आया
नीलकमल का फूल एक
लहरों में पाया

कोएलें कूकीं
भँवरों ने कलियों को गीत सुनाए
कोएलें कूकीं
भँवरों ने कलियों को गीत सुनाए
राजा ने रानी के नैनों से
प्यार भरे नैन मिलाये

चाँद हसा तारे मुसकाए
मैना हंस के बोली
सुन रे तोते
देस को पहुंची जा उनकी डोली
सुन रे तोते
देस को पहुंची जा उनकी डोली

Lyrics

kehte hain gyaani dekh le ae
o
o o o
duniya banaayi raam ne
ae ae ae
lekin yahaan har aadmi ee ee
bhookhha khada hai saamne
o
o o o
nanga pada hai saamne

jeene ki museebat hai yahaan
marne ka ?? hai ae ae ae

dhundhhla dhundhhla aasmaan hai
dhundhhla dhundhhla aasmaan hai

neela neela hai ye tamaasha aa aa
aa aa aa
dharti par chhaaya hai kuhaasa aa
kya isi kuhaase ke andar
ham dukhiyon ka bhagwaan hai ae ae ae

dhundhhla dhundhhla aasmaan hai
dhundhhla dhundhhla aasmaan hai

hai kaisi duniya re ae ae
cham cham chamken laakhon taare
laakhon taare ae
lekin jab din ko dekho to
taaron ki gali sunsaan hai ae ae ae

dhundhhla dhundhhla aasmaan hai
dhundhhla dhundhhla aasmaan hai

bhagwaan bechaaron ke hain haan
ye duniya bana kar chhupa kahaan
tu chhupa kahaan
jab se din raat bani tab se
tujhe dhoondhh raha insaan hai ae ae ae

dhundhhla dhundhhla aasmaan hai
dhundhhla dhundhhla aasmaan hai

kehte hain tu rakhwaala hai ae ae
tu sab se taaqatwaala hai
rakhwaala hai
kya diya bujhaane hi ke liye
chalta tera toofaan hai ae ae

dhundhhla dhundhhla aasmaan hai
dhundhhla dhundhhla aasmaan hai
dhundhhla dhundhhla aasmaan hai
