“Arab Ka Sitaara”(1946) was directed by Nanubhai Vakil for Roshan Pictures, Bombay. This obscure movie, describe as a costume drama in HFGK, had Amirbai Karnataki, Prakash, Cuckoo, Rafi, Ansari, P D Lal, Malka, Hemlata, Agha Shapur etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Details about the singers of these songs are not known for any of these songs.

A few songs from this movie are available and so one can guess about the singers of this song.

And guess what ! This movie has at least two songs that were sung by Rafi ! Seeing that Rafi was struggling to make his mark as a playback singer in 1946, these solo songs sung by him in this movie must be one of his earliest songs in HFM.Indeed it was just the 11th solo song in HFM for Rafi in his fledgeling career.

Today, on the occasion of Eid, here is this devotional song from “Arab Ka Sitaara”(1946). Rafi is the singer. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by S Qureshy.

On looking at the cast, I find a name called Rafi. Could this be this Rafi ! It is known that he had acted in “Laila Majnu”(1945) and “Jugnu”(1947). So why he could not act in this movie ? I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie as well as on my guess about Rafi in this movie.

With this song, “Arab Ka Sitaara”(1946) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Milta hai kya namaaz mein sajde mein jaa ke dekh le (Arab ka Sitaara)(1946) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, MD-S Qureshy

Lyrics

milta hai kya namaaz mein
sajde mein jaa ke dekh le
milta hai kya namaaz mein
sajde mein jaa ke dekh le
hoga khuda ke saamne
sar ko jhuka ke dekh le
hoga khuda ke saamne
sar ko jhuka ke dekh le

fikr o alam
na koi gham
hoga tujhe teri kasam
fikr o alam
na koi gham
hoga tujhe teri kasam
thhodi si der ke liye
masjid mein aa ke dekh le
thhodi si der ke liye
masjid mein aa ke dekh le

leti hai bas usi ka naam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah shaam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah sham
leti hai bas usi ka naam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah shaam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah sham
aankhon se bekhudi ke tu
parde hata ke dekh le
aankhon se bekhudi ke tu
parde hata ke dekh le

duniya ko dekhta hai kya
rab se bhi apni lau laga
duniya ko dekhta hai kya
rab se bhi apni lau laga
karke neeyat namaaz ki
jalwe khuda ke dekh le
karke neeyat namaz ki
jalwe khuda ke dekh le
milta hai kya namaaz mein
sajde mein jaake dekh le

Song-Log to mar kar jalte honge main jeete jee jalta hoon (Gauri)(1968) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

ganga bhi bah rahi hai
chitaaon ke saath-saath
shole bhi chal rahe hain
hawaaon ke saath-saath
shole bhi chal rahe hain
hawaaon ke saath-saath

log to mar kar jalte honge
main jeete ji jalta hoon
log to mar kar jalte honge
main jeete ji jalta hoon
aankh mein sapne phoolon ke
aur angaaron par chalta hoon
log to mar kar jalte honge
main jeete ji jalta hoon

sooraj to din bhar chal-chal kar
shaam ko thhak kar dhal jaata hai
sooraj to din bhar chal-chal kar
shaam ko thhak kar dhal jaata hai
main wo sooraj hoon jo nikal kar
pal bhar hi mein dhalta hoon
log to mar kar jalte honge
main jeete ji jalta hoon
aankh mein sapne phoolon ke
aur angaaron par chalta hoon
log to mar kar jalte honge
main jeete ji jalta hoon

mar kar waapas kaun aaya hai
main mar kar waapas aaya
mar kar waapas kaun aaya hai
main mar kar waapas aaya
jab ye jeena raas na aaya
phir marne ko chalta hoon
log to mar kar jalte honge
main jeete ji jalta hoon
aankh mein sapne phoolon ke
aur angaaron par chalta hoon
log to mar kar jalte honge
main jeete ji jalta hoon
log to mar kar jalte honge
main jeete ji jalta hoon

Here is the second song from this movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Pt Mukhram Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

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


Song-O kaal teri jholi mein kya kya bharey(Raajraani Damyanti)(1952) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Pt Mukhram Sharma, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

o kaal
o kaal
o kaal teri jholi mein kya kya bharey
o kaal teri jholi mein kya kya bharey
hansti hui khushiyaan bharey
rote huye aansoo bharey
o kaal teri jholi mein kya kya bharey

jin pe chhaaya thhi sukhon ki
aaj dukh hain chha rahe
hey mukutdhaari
bhikhaari aaj ban ke ja rahey
praat ko chadhta jo suraj
saanjh ko wo hi gire
o kaal teri jholi mein kya kya bharey

god mein belon ki jhoole
jhool ke jo muskuraaye
chheen kar wo phool toone
door kitni ja giraaye
o kaal tu balwaan hai
koi kare bhi kya karey
o kaal teri jholi mein kya kya bharey

mahlon ke jo rahne waale
khojne saaya chaley
tan hai nanga pair nange
lab jaley bhootal jaley
o kaal teri chaal mein
koi jiye koi mare
o kaal teri jholi mein kya kya bharey
o kaal teri jholi mein kya kya bharey
o kaal teri jholi mein kya kya bharey
hansti hui khushiyaan bharey
rote hue aansu bharey
o kaal teri jholi mein kya kya bharey

“Kaala Chashma”(1962) was directed by K Vinod for SBV Productions, Bombay. the movie had Manju, Amarnath, Madan Puri, Maruti, Jeevan Kala, Sheikh, Sheela Kashmiri, Abeela Kashmiri, Uma Dutt, Ravikant, Kundan, Ridku, Rani Kaushal, Rehana, Madan Khanna, Soni, Narinder, Prakash, Kailash etc. in it.

This movie had six songs in it. One song from the movie has been discussed in the past.

While discussing the first song from the movie, Sudhir Jee mentioned that with a title like this, he would have steered clear of the movie if he had been in a movie going age at that time. so those who are trying to find the age of Sudhir Jee has some clue that he was not of a movie going age when “Kaala Chashma”(1962) was released. 🙂

As far as I am concerned, I remember that wearing kaala Chashma was considered a style statement among young kids like me and we were always on the look out for such kaala chashma. We would feel jealous of fellow kids who somehow managed to get hold of this coveted item. 🙂

For all we know, this movie may have been meant for kids and those who were kids at heart and who took a fancy for kaala chashma. 🙂

Here is the second song from “Kaala Chashma”(1962) to appear in the blog. Like the first song that has appeared in the blog, this song too is a duet which is sung by Rafi and Kamal Barot. Bismil Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardul Kwatra.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. My kid at heart mind suggests that the lady was not wearing “Kaala chamshma” in the picturisation of this song and that is how the gentleman could diagnose that her nain were “nasheele”. 🙂


Song-Nain nasheele honth gulaabi (Kaala Chashma)(1962) Singers-Rafi, Kamal Barot, Lyrics-Bismil Ludhianvi, MD-Sardul Kwatra

Lyrics

nain nasheele honth gulaabi
mukhda gora gora
roop tera hai chhalke
jaise ras ka bhara katora
mera rah rah ke dil machle
allah ji mera rah rah ke dil machle
dekh akeli
samajh ke bholi
kaahe daale dorey
haath nahin main aane waali
sunle o munhjore
chaahe dil mein tu laakh jaley
haaye haaye ji chaahe dil mein tu laakh jaley

o o o
neechi nazar ka hoon maara
phiroon main ban aawaara
teri kasam
o o o
hosh mein aa deewaane
sambhal mastaane
kaisi kasam

naagin si bal khaati kamar
aur chaal teri mastaani
jaise dharti pe chaand chale
haan haan ji mera rah rah ke dil machle
dekh akeli
samajh ke bholi
kaahe daale dorey
haath nahin main aane waali
sunle o munhjore
chaahe dil mein tu laakh jaley
haaye haaye ji chaahe dil mein tu laakh jaley

o o o
raat gujaaroon gin taare
o gori bin tumhaare
chain nahin
o o o
jaao ji jaao
na banaao
hamen na yoon sataao
nahin hai yaqeen

palkon se main kaanten chun loon
phool bichha doon raah mein
jo tu mil ke hai saath chale
allah ji mera rah rah ke dil machle
dekh akeli
samajh ke bholi
kaahe daale dorey
haath nahin main aane waali
sun le o munhjore
chaahe dil mein tu laakh jaley
haaye haaye ji chaahe dil mein tu laakh jaley

ab to na taal
nainon mein aaj zara naina to daal
rakkhe ji kaise koi dil ko sambhaal

aisi nazre na daal karle khayaal
keh dengi aankhen sari duniya se haal
rakkho ji dil ko zara apne sambhaal

REPORT ON MUMBAI GANGOUT – Part 2
—————————————–

……Javed ji was introduced to Sadanand ji, as they were meeting each other for the first time. Even I had met him for the first time, though we had E-mail communications earlier. It so happened that, in the last Mumbai Gangout which Sudhir ji attended, he had gifted all of us a copy of Javed ji’s first Hindi book ( he has more books in Urdu), ” Kuchh kalaakaar-kuchh yaden “. After reading that book, I wrote a mail to Javed ji about certain discrepancies, I had found in the book. Actually I was hesitant whether to write such a mail to him, but my adventurism won over me and the mail was sent finally.

Happily, I received Javed ji’s reply in due course, in which he thanked me profusely and assured me that in the next editions all those corrections would be incorporated. Thus, we knew each other Electronically, before this physical meeting.

Sadanand ji and me had decided earlier that in an informal meeting of 2-3 persons, an Agenda would be superfluous. So, we did not have any written down agenda as such, but we had some points about some songs, to be discussed with Sudhir ji. Sudhir ji and Sadanand ji sat separately discussing from Sudhir ji’s Laptop. Javed ji had sent me a typed manuscript of his forthcoming Hindi book. Before sending the same to the publisher, Javed ji wanted that I see it and give my suggestions. So Sudhir ji and Sadanand ji made a pair discussing about their points and me and Javed ji sat discussing his book.

The first thing javed ji wanted me to do was to finalise the Title of the book. He had 3 Titles on offer and asked me to select one which he would give to the book. I remembered the occasion when Devika Rani had asked Yousuf-the fruit seller to select one of the 3 screen names for him- Dilip kumar, Jehangir and Vasudev. Oh my God ! Dilip Kumar and Arun Kumar ! What a coincidence !! Both in the same situation !!! We know what Yousuf selected and you will know what I suggested when the book is released soon.

My ego-balloon was soon deflated by a simple query about the lunch, as it was Lunch time already. We ordered few items from a nearby hotel. Upon its arrival and arrangements, an elaborate lunch programme was undertaken. After lunch, we decided to keep the book evaluation postponed to next day (accordingly, Javed ji came next day and we completed the exercise satisfactorily). We then discussed matters concerning the blog and related topics. However Javed ji was not able to participate, so we changed the discussions to old films and actors etc and Javed ji was kind enough to enthrall us with his knowledge.

At around 4pm we had tea with snacks. In the meantime, Sudhir ji was worried if Bakshish Singh ji would come to Mumbai next day to attend the seminar or not. Sudhir ji’s fear and the Mumbai-visit-curse took its toll and by evening Bakshish Singh ji confirmed that he has cancelled his coming as his own grandson met with an accident and had fracture of both legs-in the afternoon itself. (Next day, as a proof, he sent photographs of the poor child in plaster for both legs). The obvious conclusion was Bakshish Singh ji’s proposed Mumbai visit had caused all these mishaps !

By about 5 pm or so, Javed ji left the meeting venue to go to his relative for further stay. In the meantime Sadanand ji and Sudhir ji had planned to go to meet Khyati ji, who was to leave for USA later that night. She was in Borivali. Though keen to meet Khyati ji, after the double mishap in her family, I could not go with them due to my knee problems (doctors have advised me to avoid using stairs for a month. Khyati ji’s house was on ground floor, but my flat was on first floor !) and I was virtually under “house arrest ” !

By about 6 pm the meeting was concluded and Sudhir ji and Sadanand ji left to visit Khyati ji, along with my apologies to her. Later, I spoke to her on phone also.

Next 2 days, Sudhir ji was busy in attending his seminar. Third day also he visited Kushal ji. Next day he visited Famous Studios and also Anand ji (of he Kalyanji Anandji duo). On the 4th of May afternoon Sudhir ji shifted to his Mamaji’s place and on the 5th May, he and Javed ji left for Delhi, in the evening. Sudhir ji is hereby requested to write about his Mumbai visit.

I can not resist myself in sharing a secret of Sudhir ji, with all of you. One day, when we both were chatting in the evening, I asked Sudhir ji about his age. Pat came the answer “32 years”. I was stunned. I understood that he did not want to disclose his age. So I calculated. In 1988, Sudhir ji was working for some company in Bombay. That was 29 years ago. If he is 32 year old today, that time he must have been just 3 year old . When I pointed out this to him, with a straight face Sudhir ji answered, “Yes, I started earning early !”. Now mark my words…. very soon Sudhir ji’s name will be in The Guinness Book of World Records !!!

End of Report – Part 2
———————————-

Today’s song is from a film called ‘Hum Ek Hain’ (1969) which is making its debut in the blog. There were three films with the same title. The first ‘Hum Ek Hain’ was released in 1946, in which the lead pair of Dev Anand and Kamla Kotnis, along with Rehana and Rehman were making their debuts. Even the film’s director PL Santoshi was making his debut as a director with the film. Till them he had only worked as a lyricist and story writer. The second film with that title is today’s 1969 film and the third film was made in 1982.

Film ‘Hum Ek Hain’ (1969) was a social film, about sacrificing for the country. The film tried to put emphasis on National Integration too. The film shows a multi lingual family’s story. The main actors were Balraj Sahni and Nirupa Roy. The others in the cast were Dara Singh, Ravi Khanna, Samson, Jagdeep, Helen, Madhumati, Lalita Pawar, Rani, Savita, Naina etc etc.

The film was directed by Daljit. Daljit (real name Joginder Puri) was born in Sialkot on 17-9-1931. He was good looking. His first film was Punjabi – ‘Kauday Shah’ (1953). He entered Hindi films with ‘Noor Mahal’ (1954). He acted in 43 films, He was seen mostly in B and C grade action and stunt films. His last film as an actor was ‘Chowkidaar’ (1974). He directed 2 films. Hum ek hain-69 and Rajyogi-82. He paired with actress Chitra in 11 films.

The music director was Usha Khanna and the lyricist was Indeevar. There were only 5 songs but 8 singers were used. They were Lata, Asha, Rafi, Kamal Barot, Mukesh, Mubarak Begum, Mahendra Kapoor and Manna Dey. One song was about all religions being equal and another was stressing that all Indians were one. Looking at the type of songs and the story, I think this film must be one of those films which flooded after the 1965 war with Pakistan. During that period the patriotic fever was at peak. Looks like the film must have been delayed during its completion. By the time it came to the theatres, the fever had subsided and the topic of the film had become out of relevance. Naturally, the film flopped.

I was one of the people who went to the theatre to see the film. Here is the story in short-

In a certain town, there is a Punjabi family – husband, wife (Balraj Sahni and Nirupa Roy) and 3 sons. The eldest son Ashok, has married a Maharashtrian girl. The second son Raj, is engaged to a Kashmiri girl. The third son Dara chooses to remain bachelor. The entire family is a staunch patriotic one. All 3 sons are in Army.

In due course of time the war starts with the neighbouring country. All sons are sent on the border fronts. Two sons, Ashok and Dara die in action. During the war, the parents train their bahu as a nurse and send her on border to look after injured soldiers.

When the bodies of the dead sons are brought to the village for cremation, all the villages gather to mourn the deaths and console the family. However, Bharati Devi, the mother comes out and gives a long lecture, stating that her children did their duty to the nation and became Shaheeds. The family is proud of their sacrifice and no one should mourn their death…….

When I was checking the film’s cast etc, I found that the film’s Choreography is done by Badri Prasad and Vasant Naidu. I was surprised. Badri Prasad was a versatile and multifaceted artist of Hindi Cinema. He was an actor (first as a Hero, in the 1930s and then as a character artist) in 147 films. He was a singer – 7 films, 11 songs. He was lyricist for 1 film, 8 songs. He was a music director – 16 films, 168 songs. And he was a choreographer in 30 films. What a talent! His one daughter – Surekha Pandit was also an actress (played the role of the mother of Sharmila Tagore in film ‘Anupama’ (1966).

Today’s song is from film Chaalbaaz (1958).

What an year 1958 was, in terms of musical films ! Most Music Directors had offered their best songs in this year. The popular playback singers were very busy and the musicians and the arrangers had a field day, running from this studio to that studio for rehearsals and recordings. The films that came in 1958 were full of wonderful music and one can not make choices in those films. Not only that but there was a variety of different Genres of films on offer. Historical, Costume, stunt,Mythologicals, social, Comedy….you name it and you would have it. A grade, B grade and C grade… all grades of films had A grade music. An example to quote would be “Hamen to loot liya mil ke husn walon ne…”a very popular qawwali from a C grade film like “Al Hilal “- 58.

Madan Mohan had 7 films in 1958 and almost all had superb music. Just take a look at these films of 1958… Panchayat, 24 Ghante, P.B.999, Samrat Chandragupta, Jasoos, Mausi, Do Phool, Police, Solva Saal, Sitaron se aagey, Talaq, Kaarigar, Amardeep, Yahudi, Baghi Sipahi, Sadhana, Light House, Dilli ka Thug, Adalat, Jailor, Aakhri Daav, Night Club, Khazanchi, Khota Paisa, Chandan,Kabhi andhera kabhi ujala, Mr. qartoon M.A., Mujrim, 12 o’clock, Howra Bridge, Phagun, Raagini, Sone ki chidiya, Lala Rukh, Phir subah hogi, Takdeer, Rambhakta Bibhishan, Savera, Detective, Parvarish, Suvarn Sundari, Sohni Mahiwal, Madhumati, Al Hilal, Naya Paisa, Aji bas shukriya………….

Film Chaalbaaz-58 too had very good songs, Chitragupta-the melody Maker being the composer for it. However the film being a stunt picture, songs from this film were not exposed to the elite or a larger section of population, hence it could not compete with other other film songs. As such the Indian public was drenched in lovely music from so many films in 1958 and for a stunt film there was no chance to showcase its music at all. The film had 7 songs- 5 written by Prem Dhavan and 2 by Anjum Jaipuri. Rafi, Lata, Asha,Geeta and Ram Kamlani had sung these songs. The main lead actors of the film were P.Jairaj and Nirupa Roy.

Nirupa Roy (4-1-1931 to 13-10-2004) was an enigma of Hindi Cinema. An ordinary lower middle class housewife turned into an actress due to need to survive. Funny thing was that it was her husband who had visited the studio to get a job as an actor and the studio selected his wife instead ! Nirupa Roy who acted in over 250 movies has been variously branded as a Goddess of Mythological films, a suffering wife of a poor farmer, a troubled housewife of social films, an acclaimed quintessential mother of Bollywood and even a Stunt film actress !

She has been a Heroine in 110 films, a mother in over 50 films,has been a Goddess in 50 Mythological films, a suffering wife in over 30 films and a Stunt girl in about 10 films. She sang Bhajans, romantic songs, Comedy songs, qawalis, sad songs and peasant folk songs on the screen.

She changed her Heros like “Badalate huwe saathi”. She did 18 films with Trilok Kapoor ( 50-65), 12 films with Balraj Sahni ( 53-72), 16 films with P.Jairaj ( 53-78), and 21 films with Ashok Kumar ( 56-89). She was Amitabh’s mother in 12 films and stunt Girl in 8 films. She even wrote a popular film song for film Samrat Chandragupta-58 ( Mujhe dekh chaand sharmaye – Lata).

Due to all this, one could never put any specific label to Nirupa Roy. God had given her a face which exuded Daya, Kshama,and Shanti all the time,so she suited best for the role of Goddesses in Mythological films. Not having a very beautiful face, she fitted very well as a poor farmer’s wife or a toiling,suffering middle class wife of a middle class husband. With heavy make up and Gaudy dresses, she could pass muster in Costume or Historical films. But while doing stunt films, same Nirupa Roy so ravishing,different and suitable ( in shirt and trousers) that one wondered if she was the same actress who did “Goddess “roles so convincingly ! This was possible due to her acting capabilities.

I have seen most of her stunt films. Recently, our own Raja ji said in one of his comments on the Blog that he can not think of Nirupa Roy in any dress other than a Saree or Salwar kameez ( not exact words, but with this meaning). I would stress that in films like Chaalbaaz-58 he could have seen Nirupa Roy in a different avatar all together. She has copied Fearless Nadia-almost, in being dressed in a shirt and trousers and by participating in various stunts and swordswomanship (like swordsmanship). The story of the film too was suitably built, with a trained Horse-Moti and a Trained Dog-Tiger too for masala effect.

The Director of film Chaalbaaz was Nanabhai Bhatt ( 12-6-1915 to 24-4-1999). He was her director in many films,because he directed mostly Mythological and stunt films only. Nanabhai was born as Yashwant ( pet name – Batuk) at Porbandar. Since he was the younger one he was called Nanabhai ( opposite to Motabhai-elder brother). This name continued till the end. His father was a doctor. After matriculation, he went to Mumbai in 1934, where his elder brother Balwant Bhatt was working. Balwant started with Imperial,shifted to Sagar and now was with Prakash pictures of Vijay and Shankar Bhatt. he got Nanabhai a job as Sound Recordist.Soon he graduated to Production Executive.He also wrote several screenplays.

In 1942 he directed “Muqabala”, for Homi Wadia, as Batuk Bhatt. Homi Wadia became his good friend. When Homi established his own Basant Pictures, Nanabhai joined him and directed his “Hunterwali ki Beti”-43, with Nadia again. He also did mauj, Jee Haan, Chaalis Karod etc. He directed about 50 films of various genres like Stunts, Mythologicals,crime, social, costume etc.

Nanabhai’s first wife was Hemlata. He also married Shirin banu, his Heroine of few films. To circumvent the Bigamy law, he married her in a Temple and that too in the presence of Hemlata ! He had 3 children from Hemlata and 6 from Shirin. Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt are from Shirin. His children and grandchildren married is different religions.Thus his big family was an example of Secularism ! In addition to 9 children Nanabhai also produced 20 films under his own Deepak Pics and Gautam Chitra !

Film Chaalbaaz was produced by his elder brother Balwant Bhatt and Ram Kamlani. Today’s song is only the second song to be posted here. It has a very melodious tune and is sung by Geeta Dutt and Mohd. Rafi. The story of the film is…

This is the story of the princess of a kingdom,who is very proud and selfish. She wanted her people to contribute for her crowning ceremony. Her army collected money from the people by force. A young son of a blind headman of a nearby village comes to Princes to complain against the army. He is arrested and hanged as a rebel.

Roopa (Nirupa Roy) his sister is shocked and wants to take a revenge. She dons a male costume and a hood and attacks the army people, snatching money from them and distributing to the people. She is soon declared as a rebel and becomes a wanted criminal.

Roopa and the Princess love the same young man-Randhir (P.Jairaj). Displeased with the Princess for her cruelty, Randhir leaves her court and joins Roopa and her fight against the army. He too is declared a rebel. They both are arrested by deceit and sentenced to death. Meanwhile the friends of Randhir and Roopa infiltrate the jail, liberate Randhir and Roopa.

There is a final show down when the princess and the army is attacked. A sword fight between Roopa and the princess takes place. No need to guess what will happen next. It happens same way and the end is sweet. Randheer becomes the King and Roopa becomes his Queen.

“Agra Road” (1957) was produced and directed by Ravindra Dave for Nagina Films, Bombay. This crime movie had Shakila, Vijay Anand, Nanda, Bhagwan, Satish Vyas, Amarnath, Krishnkant, Dhumal, Nazi etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Eight songs from the movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the ninth and final song from “Agra Road” (1957) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

This is a rare song. Only its audio is available and that too just the first stanza. One uploader of this song has joined this first stanza with portions of other songs from the movie and attempted to pass it off as a full song.

I have only provide lyrics of the first stanza. The joined up portions are part of other songs that have already been covered in the blog.

This is the best we can do at present till we come across the full version of the song. Till then we ahve to remain satisfied with just this small portion of the song.

With this song, “Agra Road” (1957) joins the list of movies thatg have all their songs covered in the blog.

And with this fun song, Bharat Vyas has slowly and un-noticeably has completed 300 songs as a lyricist in the blog.


Song-Pocket mein botal haathon mein pyaala (Agra Road)(1957) Rafi, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Roshan

Pocket mein botal
haathon mein pyaala
main hoon bairam ji daaroowaala
daaroowaala

duniya mere khilaaf
ghar ke mere khilaaf
?? mere khilaaf
aur bachche mere khilaaf
ye bhi khilaaf
wo bhi khilaaf
tum bhi khilaaf
sabhi khilaaf
arre waah waah
phir bhi
sunday ke sunday jaaun khandaala
sunday ke sunday jaaun khandaala
main hoon bairam ji daaroowaala
daaroowaala
