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

O mere sanam

Posted on: November 23, 2008


Here is a duet from “Sangam” picturised on Raj Kapoor and Vyjyanti Mala. The people involved in creating this song are the usual suspects, viz Shankar Jaikishan, Shailendra, Mukesh and Lata. This song is a party song, and this movie seemed to have quite a few party songs, I do not know why.

The Hero and Heroine seem to have a strained relation and their body languages reflect that. Vyjyanti Mala sings and dances, and towards the end of the song, dances so vigourously that she collapses at the end of the song, with the hero reaching her just in time to break her fall.

It is one of those songs that you love to listen to, without really knowing what is it that you like in it. May be there is some invisible X factor in a song like this, which makes them such perennial favourite of the music fans.

The actual video version of the song is not the full version. Now someone has uploaded the full audio version of the song, with available video from this song as well as from other sources to make up for the missing video portion. Sudhir jee has now provided the full lyrics as well as the translation of this song.


Song-O mere sanam o mere sanam (Sangam)(1964) Singers-Lata, Mukesh, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics(Provided by Sudhir)

aaa aaa aaa
aaa
aaa aaaa aaa
aaa

o mere sanam
o mere sanam
do jism magar
ik jaan hain hum
ik dil ke do armaan hain hum
o mere sanam
o mere sanam
do jism magar
ik jaan hain hum
ik dil ke do armaan hain hum
o mere sanam
o mere sanam

tan saunp diyaa
man saunp diyaa
kuchh aur to mere paas nahin
jo tumse hai
mere humdum
bhagwaan se bhi wo aas nahin
bhagwaan se bhi wo aas nahin
jis din se huye
ik dooje ke
is duniyaa se anjaan hain hum
ik dil ke do armaan hain hum
o mere sanam
o mere sanam

sunte hain pyaar ki duniyaa mein
do dil mushqil se samaate hain
kya ghair wahaan
apnon tak ke
saaye bhi na aane paatey hain
saaye bhi na aane paatey hain
hum ne aakhir kyaa dekh liya
kya baat hai
kyun hairaan hain hum
ek dil ke do armaan hain hum
o mere sanam
o mere sanam

mere apne
apna ye milan
sangam hai ye Ganga Jjamuna ka
jo sach hai
saamne aayaa hai
jo beet gayaa
ik sapna thhaa
jo beet gayaa
ik sapna thhaa
ye dharti hai insaanon ki
kuchh aur nahin
insaan hain hum
ik dil ke do armaan hain hum
o mere sanam
o mere sanam
do jism magar ik jaan hain hum
ek dil ke do armaan hain hum
o mere sanam
o mere sanam

o mere sanam
do jism magar ik jaan hain hum
ik dil ke do armaan hain hum

O my darling beloved
We are, but a single life breath
Flowing in two different bodies
We are two yearning passions
Of a single heart

tan saunp diyaa, man saunp diyaa, kuchh aur to mere paas nahin
jo tumse hai mere humdum, bhagwaan se bhi wo aas nahin
jis din se huye ik dooje ke, is duniyaa se anjaan hain hum

I have offered my mind, my body to you
Nothing else remains with me
The fulfillment of hope I aspire from you
Even God does not hold that hope for me
Since the day we belonged (to each other)
This world became a stranger

sunte hain pyaar ki duniyaa mein do dil muhskil se samaate hain
kya gair wahaan, apnon tak ke saaye bhi na aane paatey hain
hum ne aakhir kyaa dekh liya, kya baat hain kyun hairaan hain hum

We hear
In the realm of true love
Rarely can two hearts be together
What to say of strangers
Even the shadows of beloved
Rarely find a place to be
(Pray tell me)
Alas, what have I seen
That now distresses our hearts so much
(NOTE: this has reference to the unknown love letter that the husband has seen. . .)

mere apne, apna ye milan sangam hai ye ganga jamuna ka
jo sach hai saamne aayaa hai, jo beet gayaa ik sapna thhaa
ye dharti hai insaanon ki, kuchh aur nahin insaan hain hum

O the life of my own self
Our bond, it is sacred
As the confluence of Ganga and Yamuna
That which we live (in the present)
Is the truth of our lives
And the past, it is just a dream
Alas, we are humans
Living on this earth

This was on my farmaish list, thanks for posting it Atul.
I have always liked this song – perhaps my favourite from Sangam (joint with Har dil jo pyar karega).
As you know Sangam is a “love triangle” story. This is when Raj Kapoor suspects that his wife does not love him and Vyjanthi goes to great lengths to convince him that she does. True, before they got married she did not (because she was in love with Rajendra Kumar) but after marriage, she had become totally pati-vrata.
Anyway, relations are strained – and what better way to express this than a song ? 🙂

I am surprised that only three songs from this movie have made it so far. It was a huge hit, with the air-conditioned Apsara theater in Bombay premiering with this movie. I remember making advance reservations a few weeks before to see it.

Seems to me that Atul likes neither the song nor the movie. Like the movies of those days it had great songs, which alone could have carried the movie, but had an eternal love triangle of a story, a bit of war related patriotism (not as much as in Hum Dono, a movie of the same time) in the background, …

I take issue with Raja. I think the song that captures the theme of the movie is dOst dOst na rahaa. In fact, either the Times of India or the RK Productions had a contest for the best song of the movie. I sent in my preference, and received a picture of Raj Kapoor flanked by Shanker and Jaikishan. Wish I safeguarded that snapshot.

I think this is a great song. I marvel at Shailendra’s line – yeh dhartee hai insaanOnkaa, kuch aur naheen insaan hain hum.

Of course, pasand apnee apnee, khayaal apnaa apnaa.

This is a lovely song, but I am afraid the video is incomplete. There is one verse sung by Mukesh, which goes (as far as I can remember):

Sunte hain pyar ki duniya mein
Do dil mushqil se samaate hain
Kya gair yahan apnon ka jahan
Saaye bhi na aane paate hain
Saaye bhi na aane paate hain
Hamne aakhir kya dekh liya kya baat hai kyun hairaan hain hum
Ek dil ke do armaan hain hum

If I am not mistaken, there is one more verse sung by Lata, and I might be able to remember it, given some more time (for me to hum this to myself!)

I googled, but the only video I could find online was the same as yours, and my memory (from the days when I used to scribble the lyrics as I listened to the songs!) says otherwise! Perhaps Raja or Prakash Chandra could throw some light on this.

Yes you r right Lalitha
there are around 4 antaras in this song. one atul has posted one u ve written. there is one more which i can remember starts as
Tan sop diya
Man sop diya
? ? ? ? ? ? ?
then there r 2 lines and then the antara ends as
Bhagwan se bhi woh aas nahin
Bhagwan se bhi woh aas nahin

but like u said help us Raja— help us Prakash chandraji

Yes Madam, You are right. I should say that, for this missing lines only, I did purchase the DVD of original sangam, but there too, the lines sung by Mukesh are missing…
I searched the google. And I had found the MP3 of this song with Mukesh… I will try to post the link of it… SInce Uploading of audio song is not known to me , I can not do it..
Thank you.

Madam,

If at all you wish to have song sung byAnuradha Paudwal & Babla Mehta for revisiting the memory lane here is the link:
a youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3v0yjnQSO0

Happy Listening

Lalitha ji, Peevesie’s Mom ji, Kishor ji,

The complete song is now posted, albeit it is not the complete video. Someone has very carefully reconstructed the full song using the audio track and the available video, plus very relevant video clips of the movie itself.

The complete lyrics and the translations are also posted now.

Sudhir

Here is a version with all three stanzas
1) Tan saunp diya, man saunp diya
2) Sunte hain pyar ki duniya mein
3) Mere apne, apna ye milan

Thanks for posting the video, Raja! I saw this movie once upon a time (1964 or ’65?), so the details are somewhat vague to me now, but I do remember the songs vividly, and they were all great, esp Yeh mera prem patra … and Mere man ki ganga …

Thanks again!

Lovely lovely song and very photogenic VJ and great acting. A treat always but somewhat painful to see such torment–which is very well conveyed by all.

Sangam and Mera Naam Joker were Raj Kapoor’s magnum opus. The former was a big hit, while the latter was a flop. Sangam was the usual triangle love story. But the way the songs were picturised wree superb. Its duration was more than four hours and it had two intermissions. But the whole story can be summed up in four songs.
1. Bol Radha
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kDPTrnvw-U&feature=related-Mere Mann Ki Ganga Aur Tere Mann .
2.Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega O
3 Yeh mera pyar patra-Rafi
4.DOST DOST NAA RAHAA
Vyjayanthi was busy in southerb films and so couldn’t give callsheet to Raj Kapoor even as he went ahead with the preparations. At one stage, he called up and asked her, “Bol Radha, yeh sangam hoga ya nahi and she said, “hoga, hoga, hoga. Beautiful isn’t it.

After Practically A LifeTime,Now This Creation Has Started Driving Me Mad: YES It Was For The VERY FIRST TIME When I Listened To It In VvdhBhrti In JUNE 1964,Even Today I CLEARLY Remember The Precise Feel I Was Undergoing(As A KID Of SEVEN!) As Particularly Mentioned Above By ATUL JI”..You Love To Listen to,Without Really Knowing What Is It…..?…..” Further I Was Thrilled When It Was Announced That The Duet Was From SANGAM..!(Those Days We’d Already Started Humming BolRadhaBol,DostDostNaRaha,YehMeraPremPatr….)DayBefore Yesterday I Got To See It’s Video In FaceBook & Again TODAY Only(Before Noon) Heard It In VvdhBhrti..Regarding It’s Picturisation:Even The Viewers R NOT Spared Of The Feel Of Strained Relationships(Again,As Mentioned Above By AtulJi) Especially: ..Apnon Tak Ke Saaye Bhi Na Aane Paate Hain,Humne Aakhir Kya Dekh Liya….?…
