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

Hazaar raahein mudke dekhin

Posted on: December 14, 2008


After Rajesh Khanna lost his crown as the Superstar of Bollywood, he spared no efforts to regain it. He would give his best in movies after movies, but the movies would fail at the box office and even the critics would be umimpressed. Then a time came when critics began to acknowledge Rajesh Khanna’s performances, but the box office remained unrelenting.

Then a stage came when Rajesh Khanna movies gradually began to find box office success as well. These movies never succeeded on the same scale as his movies a decade ago, and Rajesh Khanna never regained his superstar status, but he gained lots of critical acclaims in 1980 during his second innings as an actor.

“Thodi si bewafaai” was a movie that was liked by public and critics alike. It had some sterling performances from Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi.

Another remarkable thing about this movie was its music. Gulzar wrote some great lyrics and Khayyam composed some memorable music. Kishore Kumar was nominated as the filmfare best male playback singer for his playback singing in more than one movie, but he finally won the award for this particular song.

And it is easy to see why. The feelings of sadness, pathos, pain, nostalgia, sense of personal loss, feelings what could have been comes across so lucidly in his voice that the jury just could not have chosen a better song for their best male playback singer award.


Song-Hazaar raahein mudke dekhin (Thodi si bewafaai) (1980) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Khayyam

Lyrics

hazaar raahein, mudke dekhin
kahin se koyi sadaa na aayi
badi wafaa se, nibhaayi tumne
hamaari thodi si bewafaayi …

jahaan se tum mod mud gaye the
jahaan se tum mod mud gaye the
ye mod ab bhi wahin pade hain
ham apne pairon mein jaane kitne
ham apne pairon mein jaane kitne
bhanwar lapete huye khade hain
badi wafaa se, nibhaayi tumne
hamaari thodi si bewafaayi …

kahin kisi roz yoon bhi hota
kahin kisi roz yoon bhi hota
hamaari haalat tumhaari hoti
jo raatein hamne guzaari marke
jo raatein hamne guzaari marke
wo raat tumne guzaari hoti
badi wafaa se, nibhaayi tumne
hamaari thodi si bewafaayi…

unhein ye zid thi ke ham bulaate
hamen ye ummeed wo pukaaren
hai naam honthon pe ab bhi lekin
aawaaz mein pad gayi daraarein
hazaar raahein, mudke dekhin
kahin se koyi sadaa na aayi
badi wafaa se, nibhaayi tumne
hamaari thodi si bewafaayi
hamaari thodi si bewafaayi…
