atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Sau baar janam lenge

Posted on: December 17, 2008


There are many songs picturised on a man with a female voice singing in the background, viz “Gumnaam”, “Bees saal baad” etc. In this song, it is just the reverse. Here it is a female who is seen walking near a waterfall and the male voice singing in the background. This song “sau baar janam lenge” is in the same league as “Gumnaam” song “Gumnaam hai koyi”. It is just as haunting and creates similar kind of atmosphere.

The movie is “Ustaadon ke ustaad” ( not to be confused with “Hum sab ustaad hain”) and this song must be the biggest and perhaps the only reason why this movie is still remembered. The lyricist of this song is Asad Bhopali whereas Ravi is the music director.

This is indeed an immortal Rafi song from a forgotten movie.


Song-sau baar janam lenge ( Ustaadon ke ustaad ) (1963) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics- Asad Bhopali, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

sau baar janam lenge, sau baar fanaa honge
ai jaan-e-wafaa phir bhi, ham tum na judaa honge
sau baar janam lenge, sau baar fanaa honge

qismat hame milne se, rokegi bhalaa kab tak
in pyaar ki raahon mein, bhatakegi wafaa kab tak
qadmon ke nishaan khud hi, manzil kaa pataa honge
sau baar janam lenge, sau baar fanaa honge
ai jaan-e-wafaa phir bhi, ham tum na judaa honge
sau baar janam lenge, sau baar fanaa honge

ye kaisi udaasi hai, jo husn pe chhaayi hai
ham door nahin tum se, kahne ko judaayi hai
armaan bhare do dil, phir ek jagah honge
sau baar janam lenge, sau baar fanaa honge
ai jaan-e-wafaa phir bhi, ham tum na judaa honge
sau baar janam lenge, sau baar fanaa honge

I am a die-hard fan of Rafi saheb. He lives in our hearts with the heart beat. In this song he is so passionate, so emotional and his voice brings tears of love to the eyes……. he doesn’t just sing this song, but fills the heart with the magic of the lyrics……… oh the lyrics are just out of this world.
