This rare forgotten melody from Hindi film GRAHASTHI(1963) is based on raga 'Malkauns',a very prominent late night raga of Hindusani classical music.Here music director Ravi has used the raga Malkauns in  its Drut form because it was to be picturized for a dance number performed by famous dancer and heroine of the film:Rajshree. Actor Manoj Kumar has been shown singing the song on the stage in the film.The song is written by Shakeel Badayuni and sung by Mohammad Rafi and Asha Bhosle.The lyrics of the song are:
 "पायल खुल खुल जाए राम ,               (मोहम्मद  रफ़ी )
  मोरी पायल खुल खुल जाए  राम ।।
  छेड करत मोसे नन्दलाल ,
  मोरा अंग अंग बल खाए राम।।
  ग म स नि स नि ध म ग म ध नि स...।।
  पायल खुल खुल जाये राम ।।              (आशा भोंसले )
  लाख जतन  करूँ एक न माने ,
  रूप तकत बैयाँ धरत छलिया ।।
  बार बार ढल जाए चुनरिया ,
  काह करूँ मैं हाय राम ।।
  मोरी पायल खुल खुल जाये राम ....।।"
