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

Tasweer banaata hoon tasweer nahin banti

Posted on: January 9, 2009


This is one of the most memorable song sung by Talat Mahmood. In fact, the movie “Baradari” is remembered to this date mainly for its songs, and especially for this one. Few people are aware who the acor was. The actor was Chandrashekhar, who was a leading hero of that time, though not in the big league.

The lyricist was Khumar Barabankwi, whereas the music director was Nashaad ( not Naushad). And the music of this movie was indeed the hing point in the careers of Nashaad as well as Khumar Barabankwi.

What is it that makes this song such a timeless classic ? I think it is the X factor. The lyrics are simple looking and the music is soft, and the voice is in any case known for being soft and mellow and silken. The combination has worked well and this song as a result has gone on to become such a well known and much loved song.


Song-Tasweer banaata hoon tasweer nahin banti (Baraadari) (1955) Singer-Talat Mahmood, Lyrics-Khumar Barabankwi, MD-Nashaad

Lyrics

tasweer banaataa hoon tasweer nahin banti, tasweer nahin banti
tasweer banaataa hoon tasweer nahin banti, tasweer nahin banti
ek khwaab saa dekhaa hai, taabeer nahin banti, tasweer nahin banti
tasweer banaataa hoon tasweer nahin banti, tasweer nahin banti

bedard muhabbat ka, itnaa saa hai afsaanaa
bedard muhabbat ka, itnaa saa hai afsaanaa
nazron se mili nazren, main ho gayaa deewaanaa
ab dil ke bahalne ki, tadbeer nahin banti, tasweer nahin banti
tasweer banaataa hoon tasweer nahin banti, tasweer nahin banti

dam bhar ke liye meri, duniya mein chale aao
dam bhar ke liye meri, duniya mein chale aao
tarsi huyi aankhon ko, phir shakl dikhaa jaao
mujhse to meri bigdi, taqdeer nahin banti, tasweer nahin banti
tasweer banaataa hoon tasweer nahin banti, tasweer nahin banti
tasweer banaataa hoon

[…] This is a song from “Deewaana” (1952). The lyrics “tasweer banaataa hoon teri khoone jigar se” came a couple of years prior to a fairly silmilarly worded song Tasweer banata hoon tasweer nahin banti(Baradari). […]

[…] I am familiar with the more popular songs of “Baradari” (1955), viz. Tasweer banata hoon tasweer nahin banti and Bhula nahin dena ji bhula nahin dena, I was not aware that this song has a qawwali in it […]

I use to listen this song regularly on the Urdu Service of All India Radio.
one of my favorites …
