Amai Proshno Kore

Lyrics & Chords

I started the Bengali Karaoke group and was looking to sing a bengali number to start it ! But thanks to the two B’s – Bodhisattva and Buddhabrata – its already under way :) Good to see some bengali numbers in muziboo. I hope more bengali’s here would try some lovely bengali numbers for all of us :) Even if there are any non-bengali singers who fancy a bengali song and want to sing it i can offer my help in the diction part. So pls dont hesitate.

This was an impluse recording a few weeks back ! Found the track and love the song so recorded it. This song is more popular in the hindi version sung by Mukesh – “Kahi Door Jab” . Hemant Kumar sang the bengali version of the song. Which came first i have no idea but i read somewhere that the bengali one was the original ! I have heard there is a tamil version of this song as well.

I have made a humble attempt at this number. Hope if you listen you like it :)

Song : Amai Proshno Kore
Original Singers : Hemant Kumar(Mukhopadhyay)
Music Director : Salil Chowdhury
Language : Bengali

Awesome! Liked it a lot. Hearing this version the first time. Is the bengali version of “na jiya lage na” in the same movie as well?


Surajit Chatterjee said

Superb singing, Soumitra. The fact that you have sung this in your own style and voice makes it all the more intriguing. Full marks to you bro., for this sweet rendition. God bless.

Awesome! i’m really happy to hear the bangala version of this song in Muziboo and i’m looking fw to listen more.
thanks so much for offering your help with diction, been struggling with ‘pagol hawa’ for quite sometime now :) me being a non-bengali singer hooked on bengali music could definitely use your help.
if you take up song requests pls sing ‘pagol hawa’, am sure it’ll suit your voice/style.
Best Regards,

@Ramya – Thanx :) will try to post the lyrics :)
@TGK – Thanx for your encouraging words :)
@Srividya – Thanx for listening :)
@Nandita – Thanx :) Actually this song i dont think is in any movie…might have been part of an album. Same is the case with many other bengali songs which have hindi versions……‘Na Jiya Lage Na’ has a bengali version but not sure if it is in any movie !
@Sai – Thanx :) I am also waiting for that version of Bodhi :)
@Surajit – Thanx :)
@Shampak – Thanx….i thought this was the full song ? is there another verse to it ? the K track had only 2 antaras ?
@Smitha – Thanx :)
@Roshni – Thanx :) Why dont you sing ‘Pagol Hawa’. I will be glad to help :)
@Sree – Thanx :)
@Neha – Thanx. Glad you liked it :)

Soumitra – the Bengali version sounds so very good – really love the way the language rolls so smooth…it adds so much charm to the rendition (cant understand a word, though!) – beautifully sung – 5 from me! Pl do more Bengali songs and thanks for the offer to help with the diction – might latch on to it someday :)

Bodhisattva Dasgupta said

Very nice singing, soumitra…. flawless, to be precise…. somewhere, it reminded me of my childhood days when these songs would be playing all the time at home…. and also, those Puja Pandals at each and every turning, where the PA systems would be playing such songs…. miss those times….

Murali Venkatraman said

Beautiful singing. Typical bengai style with that tremolo. I find that bengali songs usually have an extra tremolo factor except for very few singers like Haimanti and Ajoy.

I would love to try some haimonti and ajoy numbers. I would certainly appreciate any help in obtaining the karaoke and/or diction. Thanks.


Kumar Srinivasan Pro user said

Have listened to the hindi version of this song many times. Enjoyed this too :-). Nicely done.

Wow! I never heard the Bangla version before this. You’ve got to sing more songs……may I suggest Srikanto’s old albums….and if possible, Bhupen Hazarika’s……



Sudha Kumar (back to listen to all of you..) said

Soumitra, Very melodious and beautiful rendition of the Bengali version of “Kahin door jab din” – Bengali is such a sweet language – the tremolo is also so dulcet to the ears. 5/5 from me!

P.S. I too would like to post some songs I know in Bengali someday – and could greatly use your help with diction etc…


Soumitra Sarkar said

@Kirti – Thanx for listening :)
@Sudha – Thanx. Happy to help anytime :)

@Vaishali – Thanx so much for your kind words…u r right …the lyrics is different…in bengali it says – the stars keep asking me , how long i will be without any direction, i cannot answer them but life is gone by just trying to search for the path….ok that was very rough translation!
