Mujhe chhoo rahin hain teri garm saansen

Posted on: November 21, 2008

I as a kid grew up reading “Chandamama”, a children’s magazine that was published from Madras in many Indian languages. They had interesting stories from eclectic sources viz mythology, arabian tales, folk tales, etc. They also used to have stories preaching the values of peaceful co existence among joint family members. In other words, they preached just the opposite of what is preached in Ekta Kapoor’s serials now a days.

The makers of Chandamama were into movie making as well. B. Nagi Reddy, the name I read in Chandamama was also the name one read while going through the posters of movies produced in Madras. and the stories in these movies were much like the stories of Chandamama.

“Swayamwar” was a movie made by B Nagi Reddy’s production, and I liked this movie, even though many people of my age who were into Amitabh Bachchan movies disliked this movie since it had no “dhishum dhishum” in it, only preaching. But I liked this movie so much that I watched it twice.

This movie was not just a movie with a message, it was a comedy movie as well. Sanjeev Kapoor and Vidhya Sinha, as well as Shashi Kapoor and Mausmi Chatterji played the lead roles in this movie.

This movie was not a mainstream movie like Amitabh Bachchan movies, but it was a movie similar to the movies of say Rajshree Productions movies which had their own audiences. Nice music used to be one of the major selling points of these movies.

Here is this nice duet from “Swayamwar” (1980). It is sung by Rafi and Lata. It is picturised on Shashi Kapoor and Mausami Chatterji. Gulzar is the lyricist and music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

Part I

Part II (slow version)

Song-Mujhe chhoo raheen hain teri narm saansein (Swayamwar) (1980) Singers- Rafi, Lata, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD- Rajesh Roshan


mujhe chhoo rahin hain teri garm saansen
mere raat aur din mahakne lage hain
teri narm saanson ne aise chhuaa hain
ke mere to paaon bahakne lage hain

labon se agar tum bulaa naa sako to
nigaahon se tum naam lekar bulaa lo
tumhaari nigaahen bahut bolti hain
zaraa apni aankhon pe palken giraa do
mujhe chhoo rahin hain teri garm saansen
mere raat aur din mahakne lage hain

pataa chal gayaa hai ke manzil kahaan hai
chalo dil ke lambe safar pe chalenge
safar khatm kar denge ham to waheen par
jahaan tak tumhaare kadam le chalenge
mujhe chhoo rahin hain teri garm saansen
mere raat aur din mahakne lage hain
teri narm saanson ne aise chhuuaa hai
ke mere to paaon bahakne lage hain

@ Atul ji – Very nice post ! took me back to those days of ‘Chandamama’, ‘champak’ and ‘lot-pot’…
I too like this movie very much then. and there were special movies starring Sanjeev Kumar from ‘south’ then. and naturally these were movies for all family members to watch together. its music was also well and soothing.
the earlier link seems to have some problems; here is a new link ;


2nd picturised version(somewhat slower than the first one)

Lyrics of 2nd version(slow & short version)
Just a pure guess->Male voice seems to be that of music director Rajesh Roshan himself and I am not able to identify the female voice ??? Help

mujhe chhoo rahi hai
teri garam saansein
mere raat aur din
mehakne lage hain

teri narm saanson ne
aisse chhuaa hai
ke mere to paanv
behakne lage hain

pataa chal gayaa hai ki/ke
manzil kahaan hai ae
chalo dil ke lambe ae
safar pe chalenge
safar khathm kar denge
hum to wahin par
jahaan tak tumhare
kadam le chalenge ae
mujhe chhoo rahi hai
teri garam saansein
ke mere raat ???aur din
mehakne lage hain

Longer video link of 1st version:


Slower bit version was not sung by Rafi and Lata, That much I am sure
