Chehra kya dekhte ho dil mein utar ke dekho na

Posted on: November 30, 2008


Most of the songs in this blog are from 1970s and earlier. It does not mean that I do not like songs from 1980s and later. It is just that I lost track of Bollywood music from 1980 onwards. Also, trends like blanant plagiarism, lyrics losing their importance, creation of songs in bad taste, demise of many legends from the scene, etc meant that the music of later decades does not appeal to me as much as the music of earlier decades.

Still, there are newer songs that catch my attention and I begin liking them.

Take the song “chehra kya dkhte ho, dil me utarke dekho na”. This song has proper lyrics, and proper singers, and that makes this song appealing to me.

Kumar Sanu, the Kishore Kumar clone, sings this song wonderfully. Asha Bhonsle, from the old guard, is also there in this song. Nadeem-Shrawan were around in Bollywood from 1970s where they composed music of C grade Hindi movies and for regional movies for nearly two decades. They got their big break in “Saajan” and “Aashiqui” in 1989 and they did not look back since.

This particular song “chehra kya dekhte ho” is a nice hummable song from a movie called “Salaami”.

As for the actors, they were unknown kids and they remain just as unknown even today, and deservingly so. Just putting a few freshers in the movie, filling up the movie with a few hummable songs, and making a love story,and hoping that the film would succeed- it was a popular way of making movies in Bollywood in 1990s. This formula had become popular because of the success of “Aashiqui”.

The clones of “Aashiqui” such as this one, fell flat at the box office. Today, this song is perhaps the only thing that still survives from the bedris of this disaster.

The lyricist, Madan Pal, on the evidence of this song, must have been good. I have no idea what happened to him. May be the failure of movies of this genre took its toll on him as well.

PS- It turns out that the actors are Ayub Khan and Latika Sharma. Ayub Khan is the son of Nasir Khan, the well known hero of Bollywood movies in 1940s to 1960s. In fact, Nasir Khan is the brother of Dilip Kumar. That way, Ayub Khan is the nephew of Dilip Kumar !


Song- Chehra kya dekhte ho (Salaami 1993) Singers-Kumar Sanu, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Madan Pal, MD- Nadeem Shrawan

Lyrics

chehraa kyaa dekhte ho dil mein utar ke dekho na
dil mein utar ke dekho na
chehraa kyaa dekhte ho dil mein utar ke dekho na
dil mein utar ke dekho na
mausam pal mein badal jaayegaa patthar dil bhi pighal jaayegaa
meri mohabbat mein hai kitnaa asar dekho na
kitnaa asar dekho na
chehraa kyaa dekhte ho dil mein utar ke dekho na
dil mein utar ke dekho na
mausam pal mein badal jaayegaa patthar dil bhi pighal jaayegaa
meri mohabbat mein hai kitnaa asar dekho na
kitnaa asar dekho na

thode kareeb aao aise na itaraao
mujhse sanam door baithe ho kyaa
thode kareeb aao aise na itaraao
mujhse sanam door baithe ho kyaa
bechain kar doongaa itnaa tumhen aake lipat jaaogii dilrubaa
aise kyaa sochti ho aake idhar dekho naa
aake idhar dekho naa
chehraa kyaa dekhte ho dil mein utar ke dekho na
dil mein utar ke dekho na

main to tumhaari hoon tumpe dil hoon
phir kisliye hain ye betaabiyaan
main to tumhaari hoon tumpe dil hoon
phir kisliye hain ye betaabiyaan
aake gale se lagaa lo mujhe ab dooriyaan na rahen darmiyaan
kisne tumhen rokaa hai shaam-o-sahar dekho na
shaam-o-sahar dekho na
chehraa kyaa dekhte ho dil mein utar ke dekho na
dil mein utar ke dekho na
