Zara samne to aao chhaliye

Posted on: December 25, 2008


In Bollywood movies, there are A grade movies made by leading producers and directors and then there are also rans whose movies rarely reach mainstream audiences. The same is true for the music of such movies.

In Bollywood, mythological movies, stunt movies etc have always been regarded as C grade stuff. These movies and their music seldom became as popular as the mainstream ones.

This class distinction was almost always maintained. But there were exceptions, when certain C grade movies and/ or their music would become as popular as mainstream movies.

This song “Zara saamne to aao chhaliye” is the biggest example of a C grade movie song joining the mainstream songs and becoming more popular than them. This song was the surprise number one song in Binaca geetmala finals of 1957 beating back “true blue” music of A grade movies like “Pyaasa”, “Paying Guest”,”Chori Chori”, “basant Bahar” etc. This was a stupendous feat for a C grade movie which has not been repeated since.

Bharat Vyas was the lyricist, and S N Tripathi, the biggest name when it came to giving music in such movies, was the music director. Rafi, who was gracious enough to sing for just about any music director, however small time he may be, sang this song which continues to be popular even today.


Song-Zara saamne to aao chhaliye (Janam Janam Ke Phere ) (1957) Singer-Rafi, Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD- S N Tripathi

Lyrics

aatma ki ye aawaaz hai

zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye
chhup chhup chhalne mein kya raaz hai
yoon chhup na sakega parmaatma
meri aatma ki ye aawaaz hai

zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye
chhup chhup chhalne mein kya raaz hai
yoon chhup na sakega parmaatma
meri aatma ki ye aawaaz hai
zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye

ham tumhen chaahe tum nahin chaaho
aisaa kabhi naa ho sakta
ham tumhen chaahe tum nahin chaaho
aisaa kabhi naa ho sakta
pita apne baalak se bichhad ke
sukh se kabhi nahin so sakta
hamen darne ki jag mein kya baat hai
jab haath mein tihaare meri laaj hai
yoon chhup na sakega parmaatma
meri aatma ki ye aawaz hai
zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye

prem ki hai ye aag sajan jo
idhar uthe aur udhar lage
prem ki hai ye aag sajan jo
idhar uthe aur udhar lage
pyaar ka hai ye qaraar piya jo
idhar saje aur udhar saje
teri preet pe bada hamen naaz hai
mere sar ka tu hi re sartaaj hai
yoon chhup na sakega parmaatma
meri aatma ki ye aawaaz hai
zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye
chhup chhup chhalne mein kya raaz hai
yoon chhup na sakega parmaatma
meri aatma ki ye aawaaz hai
zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye

What a beautiful song in what was obviously a B grade movie! It looks like Nirupa Roy played the female lead, while I couldn’t recognize the hero. It doesn’t matter, the song is great and I have always loved it. Thanks for playing the song!

The hero is Manher Desai.But i am not sure whether the film is directed by Manmohan Desai,though IMDB does credit him as the director.
