Main kahin kavi na ban jaaun

Posted on: January 5, 2009


Most Bollywood songs are general in nature where they use common noun, but there are occasions when Bollywood songs use proper noun too.

For instance, there are cases in which the hero addresses his darling not by the common name viz dilruba, mahbooba, munne ki amma, etc, but by her name viz Rekha, Seema, Rita, Julie etc. Name a common Indian name for a girl, and chances are, Bollywood lyricists have already written a song addressing her name.

Such songs have been of great use for teen and even pre-teen boys having crushes on girls. Many of them had just the right Bollywood songs tailormade for their purpose. For instance, “Rekha O Rekha” was tailormade just for me. 😉

Here is a song that addressed the need of those kids who had crushes on girls named Kavita.


Song-Main kahin kavi na ban jaaun (Pyaar hi pyaar) (1968) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

main kahin kavi na ban jaaun tere pyaar mein ae Kavitaa
main kahin kavi na ban jaaun tere pyaar mein ae Kavitaa
main kahin kavi na ban jaaun

tujhe dil ke aayine mein main ne baar baar dekhaa
tujhe dil ke aayine mein main ne baar baar dekhaa
teri ankhiyon mein dekhaa to chhalaktaa pyaar dekhaa
tera teer main dekha to zigar ke paar dekha
main kahin kavi na ban jaaun tere pyaar mein ae Kavitaa
main kahin kavi na ban jaaun …

teraa rang hai salonaa tere ang mein lachak hai
teraa rang hai salonaa tere ang mein lachak hai
teri baat mein hai jaadoo tere bol mein khanak hai
teri har adaa muhabbat tu zameen ki dhanak hai
main kahin kavi na ban jaaun tere pyaar mein ae Kavitaa
main kahin kavi na ban jaaun …

meraa dil lubhaa rahaa hai teraa roop saadaa saadaa
meraa dil lubhaa rahaa hai teraa roop saadaa saadaa
ye jhuki jhuki nigaahen kare pyaar dil mein jyaadaa
main tujhi pe jaan doongaa, hai yahi meraa iraadaa
main kahin kavi na ban jaaun tere pyaar mein ae Kavitaa
main kahin kavi na ban jaaun tere pyaar mein ae Kavitaa
main kahin kavi na ban jaaun …

Recently I was watching an interview of Dharmendra and he mentioned that he worked in this film without being introduced to his co-star Vyjantimala during the entire shooting of this movie!

Atul,plz post a review of a song by MadanMohan and sung by Rafi sahab.The song is—Youn Rutho Na Haseena from the movie Neend Hamari Khwab Tumhare (1966).

“Rekha o rekha”…I remember that one..nice tapori song. If that was yours, what about “Leena o leena, dil toone chheena” ? In those days, one of my friends had his cousin visiting him. Now this cousing was singing “Leena o leena” loudly in the verandah. He did not know that in the opposite house, there was a Leena living. 🙂

She came to my friend’s place, complaining of eve-teasing. I can tell you it was quite an interesting situation. 🙂 My friend had to convince her that it was entirely innocent and that his cousin had no clue about her existence. She relented and let it go.

When my friend told me this, somehow I never totally bought this story of “innocence”. I thought he had had crush on her. Maybe this was his way of getting her to his place. 😉

Atul, can you post that song sometime pls ? For old times’ sake ?
