atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Dil deke dekho dil deke dekho

Posted on: November 22, 2009


When one thinks of Shammi Kapoor, one invariably thinks of Rafi, Hasrat Jaipuri and Shankar Jaikishan. There are many people who in fact may well think that they were together with Shammi Kapoor right from the beginning of Shammi Kapoor phenomenon.

Well, Rafi was there from the beginning when Shammi Kapoor discovered his identity. But Shankar Jaikishan and Hasrat Jaipuri were not there in that movie. In fact, there were two music directors who had stolen a march over Shankar Jaikishan when it came to giving Shammi Kapoor style music in Shammi Kapoor style movies.

The first music director was ofcourse O P Nayyar, who in his heydays was signed up to compose the music for “Tumsa Nahin dekha” (1957) with lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri. It was in this movie that the Shammi Kapoor phenomenon was seen for the first time. O P Nayyar would subsequently work in “Kashmir Ki Kali” too.

The next movie where Shammi Kapoor’s phenomenon was witnessed was “Dil Deke Dekho” (1959). Majrooh Sultanpuri was the lyricist here too, and music direction was given by debutant music director Usha Khanna. Usha Khanna, who would go on to become the longest serving female music director in Bollywood movies came up with tunes that sound so typically Shammi Kapoorish even to this day. If one is not aware, one could well think that the music of this movie was by Shankar Jaikishan.

The first Shankar Jaikishan movie for Shammi Kapoor was “Ujaala” (1959) but the music of that movie was not quite the typical Shammi Kapoor music. It sounded more like Raj Kapoor kind of music. In fact, it was Manna Dey who sang for Shammi Kapoor in this movie.

So one can say that it was from “Dil Deke Dekha” (1959) that Shammi Kapoor was well on his way. And the music created by the debutant music director Usha Khanna paved the way for the kind of rollicking music that would become the calling card for Shammi Kapoor movies.

Here is the title song from “Dil Deke Dekho” (1959). Rafi sings this song with the kind of verve that he would show in all Shammi Kapoor songs.

And before I forget to mention it, this song also features the two Asha’s, viz Asha Bhonsle singing for Asha Parekh. This movie was (sort of) a debut movie for Asha Parekh too.

And just about every song from this movie went on to become a classic.


Song-Dil deke dekho dil deke dekho (Dil Deke Dekho) (1959) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Usha Khanna

I just watched “Main Wahi Hoon” with lovely music by Usha Khanna.

Not as good as this, though!

That should be “Wohi” not “Wahi”…

There is hardly any difference between “wahi” and “wohi”, though grammatically “wahi” would be correct. But then Bollywood pronounciation for many words are different from the proper grammatical usage.
