Chandan Sa Badan – Saraswati Chandra (1968)

The first Hindi film to win the National award for Best Music, Saraswati Chandra, was scored by the brother duo of Kalyanji-Anandji. Here is the classic – Chandan Sa Badan, rendered by Mukesh, from this magnum opus. Incidentally, this song was also rendered by Lata Mangeshkar as can be found here.

Lyrics: Indeevar

Chandan sa badan chanchal chitawan
Dheere se tera ye muskana
Mujhe dosh na dena jagwalon
Ho jaoon agar main deewana

Ye kaam kaman bhawe teri
Palko ke kinare kajarare
Maathepar sindoori suraj
Honthhon pe dahakte angaarein
Saaya bhi jo tera padh jaye
Aabaad ho dil ka viraana

Tan bhi sundar, mann bhi sundar
Tu sundarta ki murat hai
Kisee aur ko shayad kam hogi
Mujhe teri bahot zarurat hai
Pahale bhi bahot main tarsa hoon
Tu aur na dil ko tarsana

Jalte hai jiske liye – Sujata(1959)

No one can forget the golden voice of Talat Mehmood in this gem of a song from the film Sujata. The music again was composed by Sachin Dev Burman.

Lyrics: Majrooh Sultanpuri

Jalte hain jiske liye teri aakhon ke diye,
Dhoond laya hoon wahi geet main tere liye,

Dil main rakh lena ise haathon se ye chhute na kahin,
Geet nazuk hai mere sheeshe se bhi toote na kahin,
Gungunaunga yehi geet main tere liye,

Jab talak na yeh tere ras ke bhare hontoon se mile,
Yunhi awara phirega yeh teri zulfon ke tale,
Gaye jaunga yehi geet main tere liye

Mere Saajan Hai Us Paar – Bandini(1963)

Sachin Karta himself has sung a few songs he composed for in Hindi films. One of these – which utilizes his nasal tone and bard-like voice, evokes the Bhatiali folk and the life of the rural boatmen of Bengal.

Lyrics: Shailendra

O re maajhi, O mere maajhi
Mere sajaan hai us paar
Main mann-maar hoon is paar
O mere maajhi Ab ki baar
Le chal paar Le chal paar

Mann ki kitab se tum
Mera naam hi mita dena
Gun to na tha koi bhi
Avgun mere bhula dena
Mujhe aaj ki bida kaa
Mar ke bhi rahega intezaar

Mat khel jal jayegi
Kehti hi aaj mere mann ki
Main bandini piya ki, Main sangini hoon saajan ki
Mera kheenchti hai aanchal manmeet teri
