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

Hamen tumse pyaar kitnaa ye ham nahin jaante

Posted on: December 12, 2008


Early years of 1980 saw a passing fad of reincarnation stories in Bollywood, what with movies like “Karz”, “Kudrat” etc released at more or less the same time.

This fad was shortlived, but the same cannot be said about their music. “Karz” rode on the back of its music that was clearly inspired from Western music. Music of “Kudrat” on the other hand was mostly indigenous and extremely beautiful to listen to.

And the most beautiful of all songs was “Hamen tumse pyaar kitna ye ham nahin jaante”. And this song deservingly became the most popular song of this movie as well.

Good things should come in pairs and this song certainly came in a pair. It had two versions. The male version was sung by Kishore Kumar. The female version was sung by Parveen Sultana, a renowned Hindustani classical singer.

There are people who tend to make comparisons. I would advise not to make comparisons and just enjoy both the versions. As far as I am concerned, both versions are outstanding. This song has become timeless, and very deservingly so.

Parveen Sultana got the Filmfare award for best female playback singer of 1981 for this song. Kishore Kumar too was nominated for the best male playback singer award of 1981 for the same song. Not that Kishore Kumar was denied this honour. He himself won the best male playback singer award, but for a different song, viz “hazaar raahein mudke dekhi” (Thodi si bewafaai).

So here is this outstanding and evergreen song from “Kudrat”. Enjoy !

Kishore Kumar version

Parveen Sultana version

Song- Hamen tumse pyar kitna (Kudrat) (1981 ) Singer-Kishore Kumar/ Parveen Sultana, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD- R D Burman

Lyrics
—————————————–
Kishore Kumar version

Hamen tumse pyaar kitnaa
ye ham nahin jaante
magar jee nahin sakte
tumhaare bina
Hamen tumse pyaar kitnaa
ye ham nahin jaante
magar jee nahin sakte
tumhaare binaa
Hamen tumse pyaar

Sunaa gham judaayi ka uthaate hain log
jaane zindagi kaise bitaate hain log
din bhi yahan to lage baras ke samaan
hamen intezaar kitnaa
ye ham nahin jaante
magar jee nahin sakte tumhaare bina
hamen tumse pyaar

Tumhe koyi aur dekhe to jalta hai dil
badi mushkilon se phir sambhalta hai dil
kyaa kyaa jatan karte hain tumhe kyaa pataa
ye dil bekaraar kitnaa ye ham nahin jaante
magar jee nahin sakte tumhaare binaa
Hamen tumse pyaar kitnaa
ye ham nahin jaante
magar jee nahin sakte
tumhaare bina
Hamen tumse pyaar

————————————————-
Parveen Sultana version

aaa
Hamen tumse pyaar kitnaa
ye ham nahin jaante
magar jee nahin sakte
tumhaare bina
Hamen tumse pyaar kitnaa
Hamen tumse pyaar kitnaa
ye ham nahin jaante
magar jee nahin sakte
tumhaare binaa
Hamen tumse pyaar kitna
ye ham nahin jaante
magar jee nahin sakte
tumhaare binaa

main to sadaa thi tumri deewaani
aaa aaa aaa
main to sadaa thi tumri deewaani
bhool gaye sainyaa preet puraani
kadar na jaani kadar na jaani
hamen tumse pyar kitna ye ham nain jaante
magar jee nahin sakte tumhaare binaa
hamen tumse pyar

koyi jo daare tumpe nayanwaa
aaa aaa
koyi jo daare tumpe nayanwaa
dekhaa na jaaye mose sajanwaa
jale mora manwa
jale mora manwa
hamen tumse pyar kitna ye ham nain jaante
magar jee nahin sakte tumhaare binaa
hamen tumse pyar kitna ye ham nain jaante
magar jee nahin sakte tumhaare binaa

How I love this song and the movie–I’ve been hounding poor Greta to do a review of it! And thanks for putting up both the versions–lovely.

Thanks for posting these songs. I had not heard the Kishore Kumar version, but heard Parween Sultana’s version just recently and fell in love with it. This is indeed a masterpiece.

By the way, to change the topic, have you heard Asha Bhosle/Madan Mohan’s Saba Se Yeh Keh Do from Bank Manager? http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=tmPDcaHXLLA
The audio quality there is poor, but the song is a gem.

I had not heard this song, though I was aware that Madan Mohan had composed the music for this movie called “Bank Manager”. Thanks for the youtube link.
