atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Khwaab ho tum ya koyi haqeeqat kaun ho tum batlaao

Posted on: October 11, 2009


“Teen Deviyaan” (1965) was for some reason a blindspot for me, and I was not much clued in to its songs. Now I am finding out that quite a few songs, which I enjoyed listening to without knowing about their details were actually from this movie.

Take this wonderful song -“khwaab ho tum ya koi haqeeqat, kaun ho tum batlaao”. Till today, I was not aware that this song was from “Teen Deviyaan”. And what a remarkable song it is. Kishore Kumar sings it with gusto. One can feel the energy that he brings into the song. And the song is picturised nicely as a party song where Dev saab sings at a piano and sings this song, with others, including the three “Deviyaan” also in attendance. I could make out Kalpana and a very young Simi Garewal, but I am sure Nanda was there somewhere in this song as well. Or may be I am mistaken.

This song is written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music is composed by S D Burman.

PS-The song is in fact over seven minutes long and it was released in two records rather than releasing it on the two sides of the same record. Sudhir ji looked into the matter and here is what he reports

First, I checked with the Geet Kosh, and find that yes, this song has been listed as Part I and Part II.

Now this film has been a real favorite of mine and I have seen and re-seen it many times over the years. As far as I could recall, in the film this song appears only once. So I went back and pulled out the disc and scanned through the film once again. And I find I am right in remembering that this song appears only once in the film.

Then how come there are two entries in the Geet Kosh?

Well the explanation is as follows. The entire song is almost six minutes long and has four antaraas (stanzas). The audio version you have listed in your comment above, contains all the four stanzas, and it is about 5 min and 42 sec. If we look at the complete video clip (not yet available online), there is small pause between the first antaraa, that is sung at a slower pace, and the remaining part of the song. During this pause, there is a brief dialogue in which Dev Anand invites the guests at the party to sing along with him. The entire song thus is a little more thsn 6 minutes. Now, to release it on 78 rpm,it had to be split on to two sides of the record. For whatever reason best known to HMV, they put the two parts of this song on two different records (part I on N54852 and part II on N54854). Generally, in such cases, the two parts of the song are almost always put on two sides of the same record. I think this fact is creating the confusion.

The entire almost six minutes duration is one single song, presented as one single performance in the film. Neither it is a version song, nor it is two parts played at separate time in the film.

Now Sudhir ji has uploaded the full song and also rewritten the lyrics of the song accordingly, alongwith its translation too.

khwaab ho tum ya koi haqeeqat, kaun ho tum batlaao
der se kitni door khadi ho aur kareeb aa jaao

Is it a dream that you are
Or a certainty (that I can touch)
Tell me which are you
Why do you seem aloof
And far away all this time
Pray come close to me

subah pe jis tarah sham ka ho gumaan
zulfon mein ik chehraa, kuchh zaahir kuchh nehaan

Some days dawn
Seeming like dusk
(Likewise)
A beautiful face
Behind the tresses
Now visible, now hidden

dhadkanon ne suni ik sadaa paaon ki
aur dil pe lehraayi aanchal ki chhaon si

Heartbeats harkened
Softly approaching footfalls
And the heart surged up in elation
Feeling the brush
The shade of your scarf

mil hi jaati ho tum mujh ko har mod pe
chal deti ho kitne afsaane chhod ke

Seems as if by a habit
I meet you
Every turn I take
Every path I tread
And then you are gone
Leaving behind
So many unfinished conversations and stories

phir pukaaro mujhe, phir mera naam lo
girtaa hoon phir apni baahon mein thaam lo. . .

O call me once again
Repeat my name, oh once again
Give me a hand, hold me in your arms
Lest I may fall
Hold me in your arms

Indeed this is a lovely song. The movie has many lovely songs.
I saw this movie recently.
And yes, there is Nanda too in the movie. She, Kalpana and Simi are the three devis. :-)

Nice pick Atul-ji. Can’t believe this song is 44 yrs’ old.

Like Guide, read somewhere that Dev Anand also made an english version of this film (i.e. Teen Deviyan) called “O Boy! Three Girls!” for which Dada Burman recorded two English songs.

Here is the slow version of ‘khwaab ho tum ya koyi haqeeqat’ at the begnining of the clip , with the same mukhdaa and a different 2 line stanza, i.e.

subhaa pe jis tarah shaam ka ho gumaan
zulfon mein ek chehraa kuchh zaahir kuchh nihaan

This is a version song only which should be included in the post of the main song.

Nahm ji,

Your message intrigued me, and I went back and did some checking again. First, I checked with the Geet Kosh, and find that yes, this song has been listed as Part I and Part II.

I have just posted the complete video clip online, at the following link

Atul ji,
