Koi maane ya na maane jo kal tak the anjaane

Posted on: November 14, 2008


Here is yet another song from 1970s which I liked a lot those days, without having much details about it, except that it was sung by Kishore Kumar. It went “koyi maane ya na maane jo kal tak the anjaane, wo aaj hamen jan se bhi pyaare ho gaye”.

Now that I have stumbled upon the video of this song, I have come to know that this song is from Adhikar ( 1971). Adhikar was quite a treasure trove for some remarkable songs, which were forgotten with passage of time. It was also in this movie where Kishore Kumar has sung his first quawwali song ( “jeena to hai ui ka jisne ye raaz jaana”), which I have already posted in this blog.

This song ” Koyi maane ya na maane” is a fantastic duet song sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. While looking up on the actors on whom this song is picturised, they turn out to be Deb Mukherjee and Nazima. Deb Mukherjee is the brother of Joy Mukherji, and he is related to quite a few other famous film personalities, both past and present. Kishore Kumar, who sang this song for him, was the mama ( maternal uncle) of Deb Mukherjee.

Coming to the song itself, its picturisation finds the boy and girl ( Deb Mukherji and Nazima) having to spend a night alone drying out their wet clothes and things getting very intimate. In fact, I call this situation as “roop tera mastana, pyar mera deewana” situation, because a similar situation presented itself in that song of “Aradhana” as well.

This song has been forgotten by now, but it was a fantastic song as the listeners of this song will find. The music is by R D Burman and the lyrics were written by Ramesh Pant.


Song- Koi maane ya naa maane jo kal tak the anjaane ( Adhikar ) (1971) Singers- Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Ramesh Pant, MD- R D Burman

Lyrics

koyi maane yaa na maane, jo kal tak the anjaane
koyi maane yaa na maane, jo kal tak the anjaane
wo aaj hamen jaan se bhi pyaare ho gaye
koyi maane yaa na maane, jo kal tak the anjaane
koyi maane yaa na maane, jo kal tak the anjaane
wo aaj hamen jaan se bhi pyaare ho gaye

ab to hamko ek hi sapnaa pooraa karnaa hai
janam janam kaa pyaar tumhaari maang mein bharnaa hai ho
jis din se tumko jaanaa, hamne qismat ko maanaa
tumhaaraa hi honaa thaa, tumhaare ho gaye haye
koyi maane yaa na maane, jo kal tak the anjaane
wo aaj hamen jaan se bhi pyaare ho gaye

aise na dekho hans kar hamko, kuchh ho jaataa hai
tan par qaaboo rakhte hain to man kho jaataa hai ho
dil se jab dil miltaa hai, ab ham se kyaa pardaa hai
jab aankhon hi aankhon mein ishaare ho gaye haan
koyi maane yaa na maane, jo kal tak the anjaane
wo aaj hamen jaan se bhi pyaare ho gaye

aankhon mein dore gaalon pe laali, honthon pe phool khile ho
jitnaa bhi dekhen dil nahin bhartaa, tum ham khoob mile ho
ye kaali kaali zulfen, ye gori gori baahen
kitne saare jeene ke sahaare ho gaye haan
koyi maane yaa na maane, jo kal tak the anjaane
wo aaj hamen jaan se bhi pyaare ho gaye
ho koyi maane yaa na maane, jo kal tak the anjaane
wo aaj hamen jaan se bhi pyaare ho gaye
koyi maane yaa na maane, jo kal tak the anjaane
wo aaj hamen jaan se bhi pyaare ho gaye
wo aaj hamen jaan se bhi pyaare ho gaye

Lovely song.
I remember this song very well from my childhood days.
Had heard it, had no clue which movie it was from.
I am sure there are many such songs out there.
Thanks to your blog, these are getting noticed now, Atul.

Indeed this is a “roop tera mastana, pyar mera deewana” category song. 🙂

Loved this song when I was growing up – I was a huge fan of RD (beloved Pancham da) even thugh I am from the south and hardly knew any Hindi. His songs (with the inimitable Kishore da especially) truly transcdended language barriers.

@ Thanks Atul ji for this post. (the earlier link is not available and new link is given). One of the comments on the YT link mentions that Nazima passed on at an early age of 27? (i do not know that)
