Dhal gaya din ho gayi shaam

Posted on: October 22, 2008


This song is also known as “dhal gaya din THUK ho gayi shaam THUK jaane do THUK jaana hai THUK“.
The lyricist Anand Bakshi had not included the word THUK in the lyrics. This additional word is there in the song thanks to the picturisation, where the heroine Leena Chandawarkar plays badminton with Jeetendra and the sound THUK is generated as the wooden racket hits the shuttlecock.

They are not properly dressed for playing the game , and additionally, they show very poor badminton playing skills. When the two badminton enthusiasts square up at the centre of the floodit open air court, the wind speed appears to be within limits for a game of badminton. Badminton in India those days was played outdoors like cricket. In fact, most people were not aware that badminton was an indoor game.

I think that the above details are more meaningful than the details of the song. For the uninitiated, the song was picturised on Jeetendra ( now known as Ekta Kapoor’s father) and Leena Chandawarkar ( who after the death of her politician husband married Kishore Kumar) and the song was sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle under the music direction of Laxmikant Pyarelal. It was a timepass song, but as timepass songs of that era went, some of them managed to remain popular ever after the movie was consigned to the cans. This song is one of those songs that has survived to this date.


Song- Dhal gaya din ho gayi shaam (Humjoli) (1970) Singers- Asha Bhonsle, Rafi, Lyrics- Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Dhal gayaa din ho gayi shaam jaane do jaanaa hai
Dhal gayaa din ho gayi shaam jaane do jaanaa hai
abhi-abhi to aayi ho abhi-abhi jaanaa hai
Dhal gayaa din ho gayi shaam jaane do jaanaa hai
abhi-abhi to aayi ho abhi-abhi jaanaa hai
Dhal gayaa din ho gayi shaam jaane do jaanaa hai

sitam mere dil pe jo Dhaaye qasam lage usko meri jo jaaye
sitam mere dil pe jo Dhaaye qasam lage usko meri jo jaaye
naa aise dekho mujhe na toko zaraa ye socho buraa zamaanaa hai
Dhal gayaa din ho gayi shaam jaane do jaanaa hai

guzaari saath hamne kayi raatein na jaane kab Khatm hongi teri baaten
guzaarii saath hamne kayiraatei na jaane kab Khtm hongi teri baatei
abhi na jaanaa koyi taraanaa koyi fasaanaa abhi sunaanaa hai
Dhal gayaa din ho gayi shaam jaane do jaanaa hai

banaate ho ye roz hi bahaanaa na jaane degaa aaj tumko ye deewaana
banaate ho ye roz hi bahaanaa na jaane degaa aaj tumako ye deewaanaa
maanaa jee maanaa tu hai deewaanaa meraa deewaanaa badaa sayaanaa hai
Dhal gayaa din ho gayi shaam jaane do jaanaa hai
abhi-abhi to aayi ho abhi-abhi jaanaa hai
Dhal gayaa din ho gayi shaam jaane do jaanaa hai

HAHA…”thuk” is certainly an integral part of the lyrics, I agree!
