Roz shaam aati thhi magar aisi na thhi

Posted on: December 14, 2008


“Imtihaan” (1974) was a movie that is best remembered for the iconic song “ruk jaana nahin tu kahin haar ke”.

This movie had Vinod Khanna and Tanuja in the lead roles, and it was a different kind of a movie. As things stood then, movies with diffferent story lines often failed at the box office. This movie, which saw Vinod Khanna as a hero, rather than a villain, won some critical acclaim but not much success at the box office. And the VCD/DVD of this movie are so hard to come by, as of now. And I cannot understand it a bit, seeing how VCD/DVDs of far worse movies and much older movies are easily available.

Coming to this movie itself, this movie had some other nice songs as well. Here is a song sung by Lata that went “roz shaam aati thi magar aisi na thi “. It is a beautiful song to listen to. I listened to this song again after more than three decades and I liked it.

Lyrics

lalala
roz shaam aati thi magar aisi na thi
roz roz ghataa chhaati thi magar aisi na thi
roz shaam aati thi magar aisi na thi
roz roz ghataa chhaati thi magar aisi na thi
ye aaj meri zindagi mein kaun aa gayaa
roz shaam aati thi magar aisi na thi
roz roz ghataa chhaati thi magar aisi na thi

daali mein ye kiskaa haath karen ishaare bulaayen mujhe
daalii mein ye kiskaa haath karen ishaare bulaayen mujhe
jhoomti chanchal hawaa chhooke tan gudgudaaye mujhe
haule haule dheere dheere koyi geet mujhko sunaaye
preet man mein jagaaye
khuli aankh sapne dikhaaye
dikhaaye dikhaaye dikhaaye
khuli aankh sapne dikhaaye
ye aaj meri zindagi mein kaun aa gayaa
roz shaam aati thi magar aisi na thi
roz roz ghataa chhaati thi magar aisi na thi …

armaanon kaa rang hai jahaan palaken uthaati hoon main
armaanon kaa rang hai jahaan palaken uthaati hoon main
hans hanske hain dekhtin jo bhi moorat banaati hoon main
jaise koyi mohe chhede dil kho aur bhi jaati hoon main
jagmagaati hoon main
deewaani huyi jaati hoon main
deewaani deewaani deewaani
deewaani huyi jaati hoon main
ye aaj meriizindagi mein kaun aa gayaa
roz shaam aati thi magar aisi na thi
roz roz ghataa chhaati thi magar aisi na thi

aaa
hmmm
magar aisi na thi
hmmm
magar aisi na thi

Roz shaam aati… has a lovely calming, soothing and yet with a slight thrill of its own. I like the way it is shot with the orangish pink filter, to show the sunset.
Thanks for a great blog. I subscribe to your posts and your song a day is a very welcome sight in the inbox…a great start to the day.

Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s orchestra conduction is superb. Use of French Horn, Irani Santoor are excellently synchronised with the high pitch sound of Lata Mangeshkar.

You will always find the variety of the songs when Lata sings for Laxmi-Pyare.
