Kitni akeli kitni tanha si lagi unse milke main aaj

Posted on: September 4, 2008


It is often said that Madan Mohan made the best use of Lata’s voice. And he certainly did so. But what about this song ? The music of this song is by S D Burman. Listen to this song and tell me, has Lata sung any better, and sounded any better, than she does in this song ?

The lyrics of Majrooh are profound- couched in simple words, and just reading the lyrics hardly registers anything in one’s mind, but once Lata gives voice to these lyrics, one is left spellbound. The way her voice move up and down and sideways, like an expert driver driving on topsy turvy terrain, that leaves one wanting for more of this song.

The songs of this movie suffered because the sound tracks of “Talash” and “Aradhana” were released at the same time and Aradhana soundtracks stole the show. But on sheer merit, and with the benefit of hindsight, I must say that this song is just awesome and must be included among Lata’s best songs.

Song- Kitni akeli kitni tanha (Talaash) (1969) Singer-Lata, Lyrics- Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

aa aa aa
kitni akeli
kitni akeli kitni tanhaa si lagi unse milke main aaj
kitni akeli kitni tanhaa si lagi unse milke main aaj
kitni akeli

is tarah khule nainaa aaye wo mere aage
is tarah khule nainaa aaye wo mere aage
jis tarah kisi gahri neend se koyi jaage
ab jahaan se door hoon kahin baithi main albeli
kitni akeli
aa
kitni akeli kitni tanhaa si lagi unse milke main aaj
kitni akeli

aa
aa
aa
kaash wo mere ban ke paas yoon kabhi aate
kaash wo mere ban ke paas yoon kabhi aate
khulte dwaar baanhon ke tan diye se jal jaate
pyaar ke binaa hai ye man meraa jaise sooni haweli
kitni akeli
aa
kitni akeli kitni tanhaa si lagi unse milke main aaj
kitni akeli kitni tanhaa si lagi unse milke main aaj
kitni akeli

I loved this song so much that alwyas I live my life with this. I agree to feedback earlier that this is best of the best of Lataji. Even picturization is just emaculate. Sharmila looks like Diva/gorgeous in all her life and Rajendra kumar is always Graceful and elegant. Undoubfully, I want to thank all who are behind creation of it’s master piece.
Thanks

Your are so right! This song takes me to a different world altogether! Oh my, with Lata’s velvety voice you just feel like you are completely melted away in a blissful heaven! And what a composition by Sachinda and Sharmila’s beauty is cherry on a cake!! Divine!!!
