atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar

This review is written by Greta (Memsaab), a regular visitor of this blog and a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movies and its music

This song is not your regular boy meeting the girl and running around the trees song. That stage is over, at least as far as Rajendranath and Madhavi are concerned. Yes, they have got married and this song takes place on the occasion of their wedding reception.

The song begins with four guitarists in ridiculous looking mop top wigs thumping away on their guitars, and producing a tune that is unmistakably the Beatles classic “I wanna hold your hand”.

One of the four guitarists (the one on the far right as you face the stage) is Oscar Unger (of Vijay-Oscar Choreography fame). We also see the band of Ted Lyons and his cubs playing in the background. A few seconds later, Shammi Kapoor, looking even more ridiculous in his mop top wig appears and promptly starts shaking away. How I love him for it ! He is in top Shammi boneless form, dancing to a beat in his own head !

Rajshree, who till then was playing a proper “Bhaartiyaa Naari” in the movie,suddenly turns over a new leaf and shimmies in on the dance floor in a skintight western outfit. She looks elegant in her flip wig and gold lame dress.

In addition to the four guitarists and the band, lots of dancers keep Shammi Kapoor and Rajshree company on the dance floor. Two of Ted’s sisters,Edwina and Marie, are among the dancers. This song is an irresistible head-shaking body-twisting dancefest on the part of the dancers. The dancers truly let their hair down (managing to keep the wigs in place, though) in this song.

And I love that Ted gets a long solo (he’s on the drums) accompanied by some closeups where it’s easy to see how much fun he’s having. You can also see Rajendranath and Madhavi (the song is in celebration of their characters’ wedding, remember ! ) and Prithviraj Kapoor (playing the tyrannical father of Shammi Kapoor and Rehman) in this song.

One of the hallmarks of these “western” songs from this era is that they build up to a crazy beat which culminates in an entire room of people heaving and shaking—I wonder if there was a chiropractor on call on the sets? In fact there are observers who have likened this dance to a collective fit of apoplexy for the dancers which cause them to end up wobbling on the dance floor by the time the song ends.

Those must have been fun days indeed to be working as a dancer or musician in the industry! The sets, the costumes—and above all, the camaraderie.

Lyrics

Dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
Dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar

dam bhar ke hamdam mil jaate hain aksar
aur jhoothi kasmein bhi khaaate hain
par kahaan jo kahe tumse
dam bhar ke hamdam mil jaate hain aksar
aur jhoothi kasmein bhi khaaate hain
par kahaan jo kahe tumse
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar

halchal mein ham dono ki hasti har pal
chhayi hai har su ye almasti
meri jaan ye kahen tumse
halchal mein ham dono ki hasti har pal
chhayi hai har su ye almasti
meri jaan ye kahen tumse
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar

duniya se ab kyun pyaar chhupaayen ham tum
bante hain afsaane ban jaaye
ye samaan kuchh kahe tumse
duniya se ab kyun pyaar chhupaayen ham tum
bante hain afsaane ban jaaye
ye samaan kuchh kahe tumse
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
dekho ab to kisko nahin hai khabar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar
tumse hai dil ko pyaar

Nice post, Greta.
I love the term “boneless Shammi, dancing to a tune in his own head”. :-)
Such a natural.

I love Rajshree in this too. She matches him, step for step.

ok kind of song. not one S-J’S best in my opinion
