atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Dil ki shikaayat nazar ke shikwe

Posted on: May 10, 2010


I am fond of saying that Bollywood movies have one great “Chitthi” (letter) song every decade, beginning from 1960s. Thus we had Likhe jo khat tujhe(Kanyadaan)(1968) in 1960s, Daakiya daak laaya(Palkon ki chhaon mein)(1977) (Palkon Ki Chhaaon Mein” in 1970s, “Chitthi aayi hai aayi hai” (Naam) in 1980s and Sandese aate hain(Border)(1997) (Border) in 1990s. All these songs are already posted in this blog.

I am not aware of a similar well known “Chitthi” song from 1950s. But I have just stumbled upon an obscure “Chitthi” song from that decade. The lyrics of the words are quite moving and quite appropriate considering that “chithi” in those days was actually the lifeline of communications among individuals.

The song is from “Chaandni Chowk” (1954). It is sung by Lata and it is picturised on a very young looking Meena Kumari in her pre tragic roles days.Shailendra is the lyricist and Roshan is the music director.

As far as I am concerened, I believe that I may have inadvertently stumbled upon a gem of a “Chitthi” song here.


Song-Dil ki shikaayat nazar ke shikwe (Chaandni Chowk) (1954) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

dil ki shikaayat nazar ke shikwe
ek zubaan aur laakh bayaan
chhupaa sakoon na dikhaa sakoon
mere dil ke dard bhi huye jawaan
dil ki shikaayat nazar ke shikwe
ek zubaan aur laakh bayaan
chhupaa sakoon na dikhaa sakoon
mere dil ke dard bhi huye jawaan

chaand hansaa taare chamke aur mast hawaa jab ithlaayi
mast hawaa jab ithlaayi
chhupti phiri na jaane kyun main jaane kyun main sharmaayi
jaane kyun main sharmaayi
tere siwaa hai kaun jo samajhe kyaa guzri mujhpar yahaan
chhupaa sakoon na dikhaa sakoon
mere dil ke dard bhi huye jawaan

sapnon mein bhi mil na sake ham neend bhi tere saath gayi
neend bhi tere saath gayi
saawan aag lagaa ke chal diyaa ro ro ke barsaat gayi
ro ro ke barsaat gayi
main apni taqdeer pe royi mujhpe hansaa bedard jahaan
chhupaa sakoon na dikhaa sakoon
mere dil ke dard bhi huye jawaan

thode likhe ko bahut samjhnaa naye nahin ye afsaane
naye nahin ye afsaane
dil majboor bharaa aataa hai chhalak uthe hain paimaane
chhalak uthe hain paimaane
khat mein jahaan aansoo tapkaa hai likhaa hai maine pyaar wahaan
chhupaa sakoon na dikhaa sakoon
mere dil ke dard bhi huye jawaan
dil ki shikaayat nazar ke shikwe
ek zubaan aur laakh bayaan
chhupaa sakoon na dikhaa sakoon
mere dil ke dard bhi huye jawaan

What a lovely idea of “chithhi songs” – chithis were my lifeline in student years, form friends and family.

Meena Kumari looks very beautiful in this song.
One of my own favourites is “Phool tumnhe bheja hai khat mein” from Saraswati Chandra.
And modern one “Tere khushboo mein basse khat mein jalaata kaise”- J. Singh/ film: Arth

Yes, “phool tumhe bheja hai khat mein” is perhaps the definitive “Chitthi” song of 1960s.

what a sweet song!
thanks for unearthing it!
