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

Na tum hamen jaano na hum tumhen jaane

Posted on: January 2, 2009


This song from “Baat ek raat ki” (1962) is regarded as a Hemant Kumar classic. This song is picturised on Dev Anand and Waheeda Rahman. Technically this song should be called a duet because Suman Kalyanpur’s voice is also there,singing for Waheeda Rahman, but she sings hardly one line or two.

As I am not familiar with the storyline of the movie, so I am not able to understand much of the picturisation. Dev Anand looks playful, and keeps hiding from the view of Waheeda Rahman, and she appears to be in a daze or something. May be someone who has watched the movie may be able to explain what is going on in the picturisation.

This song was 22nd in Binaca geetmala finals of 1962.

Song-na tum hame jaano, na hum tumhen jaanen ( Baat ek raat ki ) (1962) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics- Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD- S D Burman

Lyrics

hmm
magar lagataa hai kuchh aisaa, hmm mil gayaa
na tum hamen jaano, na ham tumhen jaanen
magar lagataa hai kuchh aisaa, meraa hamdam mil gayaa

ye mausam ye raat chup hai, ye hothon ki baat chup hai
khaamoshi sunaane lagi, hai daastaan
ye mausam ye raat chup hai, ye hothon ki baat chup hai
khaamoshi sunaane lagi, hai daastaan
nazar ban gayi hai, dil ki zabaan
na tum hamen jaano, na ham tumhen jaanen
magar lagataa hai kuchh aisaa, meraa hamdam mil gayaa

muhabbat ke mod pe ham, mile sabko chhod ke ham
dhadakte dilon kaa leke, ye kaarwaan
muhabbat ke mod pe ham, mile sabko chhod ke ham
dhadakte dilon kaa leke, ye kaarwaan
chale aaj dono, jaane kahaan
na tum hamen jaano, na ham tumhen jaanen
magar lagataa hai kuchh aisaa, meraa hamdam mil gayaa

This is one of my favorite songs. However, I was surprised to find the action taking place in a house, because I always imagined an outdoor scene at night, with the moon, maybe the beach, some trees, the wind blowing gently, a woman who has maybe lost her memory, .. and you can see how my imagination is running away with me! I definitely never expected an indoor setting for this song.

I am reminded of another song by Hemant for Dev Anand, and I think the movie is Funtoosh, “Woh dekhe to unki inaayat na dekhen to ronaa kya … “, which somehow puts me in the same frame of mind! Both are romantic songs, and the tone is gentle. What a great singer, and how beautifully he expresses his love!

Thanks for the song, Atul.

This song is indeed a Hemant Kumar Classic. It is such a romantic song – fantastic lyrics, lovely music and that beautiful voice which makes one feel all warm and loved.

Lalitha, this song is sung with so much feeling that it is no surprise you were imagining a romantic setting to go with the mood expressed in the song.

“Naturally she is not the actual killer” … hmmm

Pradeep-ji: I believe she was killer. A natural killer … killed audience with her beauty and grace. 😉

In her on-screen presence and beauty, she was in same league as Suraiyaa and Madhubala ( & Sadhana). 🙂

Atul, this could be considered the male version of the sung by Hemant Kumar. There is another female version of this song sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

Yes, indeed, it is a classic song by Hemant Kumar and one of my favourites. Suman Kalyanpur has also sung this song but her version seems just to fill up the blank and lacks depth.
