atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Teri umar naadaan hai

Posted on: June 26, 2010


(The review of this song is written by Raja,a regular visitor of this blog and a fellow enthusiast of Bollywood music)

Hindi Films in the early 1970s could be clearly divided into two categories : “Rajesh Khanna” films and “Others”.
Such was Rajesh Khanna’s domination that unless you were a name already (like Dharmendra, Shashi Kapoor or Sanjeev Kumar), it was tough for another hero to compete with the Rajesh wave. Ageing heroes like Rajendra Kumar and Biswajeet began getting rejected, aspiring heroes like Rakesh Pandey and Romesh Sharma began getting dejected. You needed tremendous staying power, patience and a lot of luck to ride through those times. Ask Amitabh Bachchan who had a string of flops till Dame Luck smiled on him, with the lead role in Zanjeer falling into his lap with Dev Anand rejecting it.

Or you could always go the “if you can’t beat them, join them” route. Become a Rajesh Khanna wannabe, dress like him, have a hairstyle like the Khanna, wear big goggles, copy those mannerisms – and hope for the best. Those producers who cannot afford the Khanna or cannot get his dates or just cannot stand his tantrums may go for the wannabe.

And maybe that is what Rakesh Roshan tried.

Possibly emboldened by Paraya Dhan (which was a moderate success), he seemed to go into the deep end with Aankhon Aankhon Mein as a Rajesh wannabe. Rajesh suit : check, hairstyle : check, black goggles : check, tilt of the head and shutting the eyes : check. Right down to the scarf round the neck.

And it worked! How much of it is attributable to Rakesh Roshan is questionable, my personal opinion being that Raakhee stole the show in the movie – but it did benefit both these young actors hugely. The movie was a fairly big hit (in those Rajesh times!) and the songs were pretty popular. It must have been some sort of consolation for Shankar, seeing as – now that Jaikishen was no more – he (Shankar) was being considered as the lesser half of the Shankar-Jaikishen pair. Good for him too!

The biggest hit song of the movie was the title song, another popular song was “do baatein pyar bhari” – but the less-known songs of the movie were pretty catchy too. This one “teri umar nadaan hai”, for example.

Don’t miss Rajesh Khanna, oops, wannabe-Rajesh Khanna. Complete with gilet et al. This could have been Rajesh singing “gussa itna haseen hai to pyar kaisa hoga”.
I don’t think his dancing steps or style quite matched the Khanna’s but it is not for want of trying.

Later, as Rajesh’s aura declined, Rakesh would try to evolve his own style.
I leave it to the readers to judge for themselves whether he succeeded or not.

For now, please enjoy this song from 1972 – lyrics by Verma Malik and music, as mentioned above, by Shankar Jaikishen. The voice is of course that of Kishore Kumar.


Song-Teri umar naadaan hai (Aankhon Aankhon Mein) (1972) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

he he ho ho
he he ho ho
he he ha ha ha
teri
teri umar naadaan hai
thahra huaa toofaan hai
main bhi jawaan hoon
tu bhi jawaan hai
mausam ka dil meharbaan hai
haay haay haay haay
teri umar naadaan hai
thahra huaa toofaan hai
main bhi jawaan hoon
tu bhi jawaan hai
mausam ka dil meharbaan hai
haay haay haay haay
teri umar naadaan hai

bhole pan pe
gore tan pe
o toone pahni hai boondon ki maala
aise janchti
aise lagti
ho jaise mehki huyi madhushaalaa
bhole pan pe
gore tan pe
o toone pahni hai boondon ki maala
aise janchti
aise lagti
ho jaise mehki huyi madhushaalaa
jaagaa
jaagaa huaa armaan hai
thahra huaa toofaan hai
haan main bhi jawaan hoon
tu bhi jawaan hai
mausam ka dil meharbaan hai
haay haay haay haay
teri umar naadaan hai

koi baat kar
o mulaaqaat kar
o gori
kitna tujhe abhimaan hai
teri chhaon mein
tere gaaon mein
pardesi teraa mehmaan hai
koi baat kar
o mulaaqaat kar
o gori
kitna tujhe abhimaan hai
teri chhaon mein
o tere gaaon mein
pardesi teraa mehmaan hai
banti
banti kyon tu anjaan hai
thahra huaa toofaan hai
haan main bhi jawaan hoon
tu bhi jawaan hai
mausam ka dil meharbaan hai
haay haay haay haay
teri umar naadaan hai
he he ho ho
he he ho ho
he he ho ho haay haay haay

hi atul and raja
you 2 r being very mean to the likes of Rakesh Roshan, Vijay Arora etc. in the process you forgot Dheeraj Kumar and Mahendra Sandhu.
hmmm!

If you ask me, I will regard this song as the most popular song from this movie. It is just that at that time I was not aware that this song was from “Aankhon Aankhon Mein” (1972). It is one of those wonderful songs that I liked a lot without being aware of any details.

For a kid like me, it was an iconic song.

Well, how could I forget Dheeraj Kumar and Mahendra Sandhu? Esp Dheeraj Kumar, who got caught up bang in the middle of the Rajesh craze?
I remember Dheeraj Kumar very well because he was hero in a movie “Raaton Ka Raja” – I liked it because it had the name Raja in it. :-)
I remember the title song very well. Used to sing it all the time. Am going to send a farmaish for it now. :-)

Great review, Raja! Yes, I also remember the Rajesh khanna look-alikes time!

Ah.. Nice to visit here and see your first post ever.

Your writing style has not changed much, thank god. Lagta hai tum bachpan se hi aise the. :)
