Here is an assortment of 3 Urdu and a Punjabi song of Pakistani movies of yesteryears. These are blasts from the past but still widely enjoyed. Today is a snowy day at where we live and it is difficult to go out. These and other songs will be our companion for the weekend. Hope you like’em too.
First song is titled ‘jis taraf aaNkh uthaoun’. Movie is Suraiyya Bhopali and the singers are Naheed Akhtar and Mehdi Hassan. The actos are Rani and Shahid. I like the song because of its Hyderabadi (Deccani) language. This style of Urdu is now lost from Pakistani cinema.

Second song is titled ‘jadoN holi jayee’ and is sung by Madam Noor Jehan. It is from from the movie ‘aat khuda da veer’. Actors in song are Habib and Naghma. Gotta love ever green songs of Madam!

The song title is ‘akelay na jana’ from the movie Arman. This song was composed by Sohail Rana. The song was originally composed for a movie titled ‘akele na jana’ but when for some reason that movie got delayed, it was used in the movie ‘Arman’ which was released in 1966.

This song is also from the movie Suraiyya Bhopali released on July 16, 1976. The singer is Naheed Akhtar. Another masterpiece of Deccani Urdu.

    @ No. 1 Umrao jan Ada
    No. 2 Aat Khuda da ver,

    but hav’nt seen any of them, (except clips) heard and enjoyed for ever, Noor Jehan, jedon holi jai, no one can
    ever remake such difficult melody sung by Madame, whom, none can copy, I think have not seen a good actress like
    Rani, when ever I saw her in Pak films (very rare) came out with deep emotions, she impressed so much, that I wanted
    to see her again and again just to watch “those” expressions plenty of them, which reached the hights of ” acting ” art so near to reality. For me she was “the best Actress ” in the sub-conti, with such a broad & clear dialogue, not only spoken but ” performed”, very respectable.
    In some of the mujras sublime dances, only she could perform, with a body language so majestic, a beauty, dressed in a dream of lukhnowi class of legert

    I am pretty sure that 1st. and 4th. songs are from” Suraiyya Bhopali” ,not “Umrao Jane Ada.”

    Kavi saheb, I may be worng but i think Suraiyya Bhopali is the name of singer and Umrao Jan Ada is the movie name. #4 is definitely from Umrao Jan Ada as I own this movie. But I have to reveiw it now :) to make sure song 1 is also from it. Was feeling lazy to review it that is why i asked if somebody knew for sure, which movie song # 1 belonged to.

    I don’t remember any playback singer named Suraiyya Bhopali and I think 1st.song is sung by Naheed Akhtar.

    I am not sure about the fourth song but am certain that first is from movie Soriya Bhopali by Naheed Akhtar. Another song in Hyderabadi accent in this movie is “Tha Yaqeen keh Aaye gi ye rataan kabhi.”

    Owais, my own interests in Pakistani movies predate this era and I was not very fond of these anyhow, but I suspect that SH Kavi is right. I think that none of the song are from Umrao Jan Ada. I remember watching the movie and am quite sure that it was a period film so Shahid in a suit would not fit in.

    Also, I believ that SURIYA BHOPALI is the name of the film not the singer. I also think that songs 1 and 4 are both from that film because it had Shahid, was set in more modern times. Also I think it had Waheed Murad in it (you see him at beginning of song 1) and also the “tasveeran” as opposed to “tasveerain” was supposedly a “Bhopalism” placed by the lyrics writer.

    However, as I said, my interest in Lollywood was in an earlier era so these movies are not major elements of my movie memories… so, I coudl very well be wrong.

    Kavi Sahib, Adil bhai and Rahim Khan, you are right about Surayya Bhopali and Umrao Jan Ada. I will do the necessary correction in my text in a bit. The songs cannot be from Umrao Jan Ada b/c Shahid is wearing ‘suite’ in the songs.

    Aap kee 3rd choice kay kia kehney. I think this is of the best romantic songs of Pakistani cinema.Waheed Murad’s acting and picturization of this song are simply superb.

    How well would a channel featuring only old films and songs do? Throw in the old classic dramas from PTV and NTM and the channel is guaranteed to be a hit. No?

    Owais Bhai

    what a great selection – all four songs were super-hits and remain popular even today. The compositions and voices are terrific. And, Rani’s classic beauty….
