Saagar kinaare dil ye pukaare

Posted on: November 29, 2008

Dimple Kapadia made her debut in 1973 with “Bobby”. The success of this movie should have seen her landing many assignments and launch her career. Instead, she got married to Rajesh Khanna, and she was lost to Bollywood.

A decade, two daughters, and a separation from her husband later, she was back into Bollywood, and guess what, she was paired against the same hero, viz Rishi Kapoor, who was her hero in “Bobby”.

The movie was “Saagar”. It was a well made movie also featuring Kamal Hasan.

This movie is also known for the brillinat music of R D Burman. Javed Akhtar, who earlier was part of the legendary Salim-Javed duo of scriptwriters, had turned a lyricist by early 1980 after his separation from Salim.Javed Akhtar wrote some new kind of songs in this movie. One such song “Johny kya bola tha tujhse” has already been posted in this song.

This movie had two songs that included the word “Saagar” in their lyrics. In other words, two of the songs n this movie qualify to be called theme song/ title song of this movie.

Here is one of these songs – “Saagar Kinaare dil ye pukaare”. It is a duet, where Kishore Kumar and Lata are at their crooning best.

Song-Sagar kinaare, dil ye pukare ( Saagar) (1985) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Javed Akhtar, MD- R D Burman


saagar kinaare dil ye pukaare
tu jo nahin to meraa koyi nahin hai
ho saagar kinaare …
saagar kinaare dil ye pukaare
tu jo nahin to meraa koyi nahin hai
ho saagar kinaare

jaage nazaare, jaagi hawaayen
jaage nazaare, jaagi hawaayen
jab pyaar jaagaa, jaagi fizaayen
ho pal bhar ko dil ki duniyaa soyi nahin hai
saagar kinaare dil ye pukaare
tu jo nahin to meraa koyi nahin hai
ho saagar kinaare

lahron pe naachen, kiranon ki pariyaan
lahron pe naachen, kiranon ki pariyaan
main khoyi jaise, saagar mein nadiyaa
ho tu hi akeli to khoyi nahin hai
saagar kinaare dil ye pukaare
tu jo nahin to meraa koyi nahin hai
ho saagar kinaare

I know of at least two films for which Javed Akhtar had penned lyrics before he wrote for SAAGAR – SILSIILA (1981) and SAATH SAATH (1982). He wrote songs for R D Burman for the first time in SAAGAR and ‘Jaane do na..’ was his first song recorded for R D Burman.

You may like to change that part of the write up accordingly.






Sad and Solo Female Version by Lataji


Aaaa aaaaa aaaaaa
ho hoo oooooo ooo
Ooooo………Saagar kinaare…..
Saanjh savere….
Halke ujaale halke andhere
Kyun hain ye dooriyaan, kya hain majbooriyaan
Dil jo poochhe kya kahoon
Gam ki gahraaeeyaan jaisi tanhaaiyaan
Haay kaise main sahoon
Tu nahi paas to kya mere paas hai
Ek hi khwaab hai ek hi aas hai
Teri hi yaaden teri hi baaten
Beete naa ye din beete naa raaten
Teri deewani jabse soyee nahin hai
Saagar kinaare dil ye pukaare
Tu jo nahin to mera koi nahin hai
Ho saagar kinaare…..
