Bagon mein chale aao

One of the haunting song from the movie Anamika with two great actors Sanjeev kumar and Jaya badhuri…After watching the way she acted in that song…made me sing atonce … what a fantastic soothing singing by the legend lata mangeshkar on the beautiful composition by RD Burman.Tried my attempt…and the track music allowed me to attend the lines only once…Very much disappointed with the track.but still wish to sing it on the flow…Please forgive my diction errors.

Song: Bagon mein chale
Movie: Anamika (1973)
Music: RD Burman
Lyricist : Majrooh Sultanpuri (View Lyrics)
Originally sung by : Lata mangeshkar
Cover : Sowmya

baaho mein chale aao, hum se sanam kyaa paradaa
Come into my arms; what curtain separates you from me, darling?

ye aaj kaa naheen milan ye sang hain umar bhar kaa
This meeting is not only of today; this union is for our whole lives.

chale hee jaanaa hai, najar churaa ke yoo
I must go only after meeting your glance like so

fir thaamee thee, saajan tum ne meree kalaaee kyoo?
Darling, why then did you catch my wrist to hold me back?

kisee ko apanaa banaa ke chhod de
To leave someone after making them your own...

ayesaa koee naheen karataa
No one does something like that.

kabhee kabhee kuchh to, kaho piyaa hum se
From time to time, just say something to me, beloved

ye, kam se kam aaj to khul ke milo jaraa hum se
say? this: at the very least, meet me out in the open today

hai raat apanee, jo tum ho apane
the night is mine, if you are mine...

kisee kaa fir, humei dar kyaa?
whom then do we fear?

Kuch na kaho

The slow tune is once again delightfully intertwined with the R.D. Burman touch in a violin orchestrated tune that is a must listen to put it lightly. Lata Mangeshkar out do all of them in a tune where she sounds like she has sung twenty years prior to the original release of the album. Her rendition reaches the heights that Javed Akhtar has hoped for when penning the album, clearly.Just had a thought to sing this number purely on lata ji’s voice magic on this song even at her old age.

Song : Kuch na kaho
