Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Socha tha pyaar hum na karenge

Posted on: October 31, 2008


Listening to this Mukesh song all these years without any additional information, I thought that this song had all the attributes of a Raj kapoor song. It was sung by Mukesh, lyrics looked Shailendra like and music appeared Shankar Jaikishan like, and I was sure that the song was picturised on Raj Kapoor.

But when I finally managed to watch the video of this song, I realised that I was a bit off target. Apart from this being a Mukesh number, I was mistaken on other counts. It was written by Rajinder Krishan and music direction was by Kalyanji Anandji. This song was not picturised on Raj Kapoor, but on his younger brother, viz Shammi Kapoor. And it was not a standard sad song, rather a comedy song, despite the words in the lyrics. Or as some sophisticated critics would say, this was a song where the hero hides his sadness by laughing his sadness away. In this song, the hero is first seen singing away in the rear of a truck, and the truck driver shooes him away. Then he hitches a ride in the rear of a rickshaw, only to be pushed away by the man riding the rickshaw with his wife. Then the hero does roller skating on the road with a couple of other people, and manages to stop only by dashing against an electric pole.

In brief, this song is picturised in a light hearted manner, and so this song must be regarded as a light hearted song. But the resemblance of this song to a Raj kapoor movie song is just too uncanny, I must say.


Song- Socha tha pyar hum na karenge (Bluffmaster) (1963) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

sochaa thaa pyaar ham naa karenge
soorat pe yaar ham naa marenge
phir bhi kisi pe dil aa gayaa
sochaa thaa pyaar ham naa karenge
soorat pe yaar ham naa marenge
phir bhi kisi pe dil aa gayaa
sochaa thaa pyaar ham naa karenge

bahut Khaaq duniyaa ki chhaani thi hamne
bahut Khaaq duniyaa ki chhaani thi hamne
ab tak kisi ki na maani thi hamne
ab tak kisi ki na maani thi hamne
dhokhe mein dil kaise aa gayaa
sochaa thaa pyaar ham naa karenge
soorat pe yaar ham naa marenge
phir bhi kisi pe dil aa gayaa
sochaa thaa pyaar ham naa karenge

agar dil na dete bada naam karte
agar dil na dete bada naam karte
magar pyar se kya bada kaam karte
magar pyar se kya bada kaam karte
dil ko yahi kaam bhaa gaya
sochaa thaa pyaar ham naa karenge
soorat pe yaar ham naa marenge
phir bhi kisi pe dil aa gayaa
sochaa thaa pyaar ham naa karenge
sochaa thaa pyaar ham naa karenge
soorat pe yaar ham naa marenge
phir bhi kisi pe dil aa gayaa
sochaa thaa pyaar ham naa karenge

Exact same impression I had too, Atul.

Not very long ago I saw this song on youtube and was really surprised to see that it was Shammi Kapoor. I did not know which movie it was from – only then I realised it was from Bluffmaster (have not seen the movie but I know it has other good songs also – I will put them as farmaishes to you).

Nice song.

So you were also surprised ? To this day I have difficuly reconciling to the fact that this song is not a Raj Kapoor song.

I love the qawwali from this film with Shammi dressed as a woman (“Chali Chali Kaisi Hawa” sung by Shamshad Begum—whose voice I love—and Usha Mangeshkar)…
