Yaadon Ki Baaraat Nikhali” courtesy of Hindi Lyrics:

Kishore: Yaadon Ki Baraat Nikjli Hai Aaj Dil Ke Dwaare, Dil Ke Dwaareyaadonkibaaraat.jpg

Yaadon Ki Baraat Nikjli Hai Aaj Dil Ke Dwaare, Dil Ke Dwaare

Sapnon Ki Shehnaai Beete Dinon Ko Pukare, Dil Ke Dwaare

Ho Chhedo Taraane Milan Ke Pyare Pyare, Sang Hamare

Badle Na Apna Yeh Aalam Kabhi

Jeevan Mein Bichhdenge Na Hum Kabhi

Ho Badle Na Apna Yeh Aalam Kabhi

Jeevan Mein Bichhdenge Na Hum Kabhi

Rafi: Badle Na Apna Yeh Aalam Kabhi

Jeevan Mein Bichhdenge Na Hum Kabhi

Ho Badle Na Apna Yeh Aalam Kabhi

Jeevan Mein Bichhdenge Na Hum Kabhi

Yoon Bhi Jaaoge Aakhir Kahan Hoke Hamare

Both: Yaadon Ki Baraat Nikjli Hai Aaj Dil Ke Dwaare, Dil Ke Dwaare

Sapnon Ki Shehnaai Beete Dinon Ko Pukare, Dil Ke Dwaare

Rafi: Aage Bhi Hoga Jo Uska Karam

Kishore: Yeh Din To Manaayenge Har Saal Hum

Rafi: Apne Aangan Nachen Gaayenge Chanda Sitaare

Both: Yaadon Ki Baraat Nikjli Hai Aaj Dil Ke Dwaare, Dil Ke Dwaare

Sapnon Ki Shehnaai Beete Dinon Ko Pukare, Dil Ke Dwaare

Today’s song is “Chura Liya Hai” – from Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973).  I saw this film within a film (Swades) and was more curious to see it, so I did and loved it!yadon.jpg

The film uses the familiar Bollywood theme of siblings separated by fate. Gangland killers assassinate an honest man who defied them, killing his wife as well. The couple’s three sons flee the massacre and lose contact with each other. They grow up in entirely different circumstances and are re-united only when one of the sons, played by Dharmendra, sets out to find the villain who killed their parents….Their only hope of reuniting is by remembering the song their mother had taught them… Yaadon Ki Baaraat. (wikipedia)

Enjoy this easy listening, yet passionate R.D. Burman tune, with Asha Bhosle singing playback and  Zeenat Aman pretending to sing. Male playback vocals by Mohammed Rafi.

Thanks to  jazzyaj  for the video.

 Ram Teri Ganga Maili (1985),  (literally translated into English as “Rama your Ganges has become dirty”)  What a hot movie! For an indepth analysis please check out Philip’sfil-ums.

This is a story of a young man from Kolkata, who falls in love with a very innocent girl in mountains and marries her. Before leaving for Kolkata, he promised that he will come back to get her. Unfortunately, he never returned due to family barriers. The girl becomes mother of his child and finally she decides to search her husband. The girl, who is named Ganga, travels from Gangotri to Kolkata to find him (this is also the real path the Ganges river takes). On the way, she only meets sinful and bad people. Though she left Gangotri, innocent and clean (like the Ganges river), her journey has led her into the path of people who try to exploit her for her beauty.  Cultural allusions: The movie is an allegory that “synthesizes classical and mythic narrative, soft-core political and social commentary (here condemning the corruption of politicians and capitalists and championing the nascent environmental initiatives of Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi). The narrative recapitulates the Abhijñānaśākuntalam story—that first appeared in the epic Mahabharata in perhaps the 3rd or 2nd century BCE and then was reworked, some six hundred years later, by the poet Kalidasa.” (wikipedia)

Watch “Ram Teri Ganga Maili Ho Gayi.”  “Rama Teri ganga maili ho gayi papiyon ke paap dhote dhote (Rama your Ganges has become dirty by cleaning the sins of sinful people)”
