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.

    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….
