O Sajna Barkha Bahar Aayi – Parakh (1960)

Salil Chowdhury created some awesome music – which he utilized in both Bengali and Hindi. One of these is the gem “Na jeona, rajani akhono baki” sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Bengali. The same tune was used for the Bimal Roy film, Parakh (1960) in this song, again by Lata – picturized here on Sadhana and Vasant Choudhury. Incidentally, Salil Chowdhury was also the writer for this story.

Lyrics:

O sajanaa, barkhaa bahaar aai
Ras ki phuhaar laayi, ankhiyon me pyaar laayi

Tumko pukaare mere mann kaa papiharaa
Meethi Meethi agnii mein, jale moraa jiyaraa

Aisi rimjhim mein o saajan, pyaase pyaase mere nayan
Tere hi, khwaab mein, kho gaye
Saanvli saloni ghataa, jab jab chhayi
Ankhiyon men rainaa gayi, nindiyaa na aayi

Aaja Re Pardesi – Madhumati (1958)

The Madhumati soundtrack was one of the masterpieces created by Salil Chowdhury in this Bimal Roy film. The haunting Aaja Re Pardesi was rendered perfectly by Lata Mangeshkar, picturized on Dilip Kumar and Vyjanthimala.

Lyrics: Shailendra

Aa ja re pardesi

Main to kab se khadi is paar, ye ankhiyaan
Thak gayi panth nihaar, aaja re pardesi

Main diye ki aisi baati, jal na saki jo bujh bhi na paati
Aa mil mere jeevan saathi, O

Tum sang janam janam ke phere, bhool gaye kyoon saajan mere
Tadpat hoon main saanj savere, O

Main nadiya phir bhi main pyaasi, bhed ye gehra baat zaraa si
Bin tere har saans udaasi, O
