Jiske liye sabko chhoda

Posted on: January 16, 2009


This is a very popular “betrayal” song. In fact, I am amazed that I did not think of this category before. This is a category of song where one person feels betrayed and sings a song expressing his hurt.

Rafi has been a past master in singing such betrayal songs. And so it comes as no surprise that he should be enlisted to sing this song too.

But in most such songs, Rafi would sing a solo song taliking about the “bewafaayi” of his lover. But in this song, we see the lady also singing and rubbing salt to his wounds by saying “yes, I am bewafa, and I like it that way”.

That way, it is a very different and “liberated” kind of betrayal song where betrayal becomes “respectable”.

From the picturisation, it would appear to me that Vinod Mehra ( in love with Rekha) and Nutan (in love with Rajendra Kumar) are being deliberately being needled by Rekha and Rajendra Kumar who are showing off as being madly in love with each other, so that both Vinod Mehra and Nutan feel humiliated and infuriated anf finally walk off the party in disgust. I have not watched the movie, so I am not aware what is the provocation for such action on the part of Rekha and rajendra Kumar.

It is a party song as well, so in the time honoured way of Bollywood party songs, the other participants in the party just stand still like statues, as if petrified. and this portion o party songs never ceases to amuse me.

The song is quite humable in fact. It is the first “betrayal” duet in Bollywood and it is ung by Rafi and Sulakshana Pandit. Majrooh is the lyricist, whereas Usha Khanna is the music director.


Song-Jiske liye sabko chhoda (Saajan ki saheli ) (1980 ) Singers-Rafi, Sulakshana Pandit, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

Jiske liye sabko chhoda
usi ne mere dil ko todaa
Jiske liye sabko chhoda
usi ne mere dil ko todaa
o bewafaa
o bewafaa
kisi aur ke saajan ki saheli ho gayi
tujhse pyaara koyi milaa
chhoda tujhe to kyun hain gilaa
tujhse pyaara koyi milaa
chhoda tujhe to kyun hain gilaa
main bewafaa
haan main bewafaa
kisi aur ke sajan ki saheli ho gayi
Jiske liye sabko chhoda
usi ne mere dil ko todaa

lalalalalalala
dekho kyaa khush hoke
paayal ko jhankaare
dhalke rah jaaye dil
aise kare ishaare
dekho kyaa khush hoke
paayal ko jhankaare
dhalke rah jaaye dil
aise kare ishaare
aake mere sitamgar
ghair ke dil me baske
kaisi besharmi se
baat kare hans hans ke
kaise kahoon kya ho gayaa
kal mera dil thi wo dilruba
kaise kahoon kya ho gayaa
kal mera dil thi wo dilruba
o bewafaa
o bewafaa
kisi aur ke saajan ki saheli ho gayi
tujhse pyaara koyi milaa
chhoda tujhe to kyun hain gilaa

main to hoon ik titli
udne firne waali
kaise rahoongi baithi
ek hi dil ki daali
main to hoon ik titli
udne firne waali
kaise rahoongi baithi
ek hi dil ki daali
jo ek se ek badhke
hain pyaar ke nazaare
fir kyun na lahraaun
kyun na karoon ishaare
kaisi sharam kaisi haya
jabse mila hai saathi naya
kaisi sharam kaisi haya
jabse mila hai saathi naya
main bewafa
ho main bewafa
kisi aur ke sajan ki saheli ho gayi
Jiske liye sabko chhoda
usi ne mere dil ko todaa

pyaar nasha hai aisa
jispe chaa jaata hai
aas paas bhi usko
kam hi nazar aata hai
pyaar nasha hai aisa
jispe chaa jaata hai
aas paas bhi usko
kam hi nazar aata hai
maana ke mere dil me
pyaari si ik ladki
aan basi hai fir se
ban ke shama mere ghar ki
chaaha use to kya hua
isme kisi ka jaata hai kya
chaaha use to kya hua
isme kisi ka jaata hai kya
o bewafa
haan main bewafa
kisi aur ke saajan ki saheli ho gayi

in fact both the songs in the list belong to “Saajan Ki Saheli”
“Saajan Bina Suhaagan” is the “Rajendra Kumar- Nutan- Vinod Mehra-Baby Padmini Kolhapure” starrer which has “Madhuban Khusboo Deta Hain”

Thanks for noticing this error. In the writeup, I have correctly mentioned the movie names. It is in the lists where the movie names are incorrect.

The song “Jiske liye sabko chhoda” is from “Saajan Ki Saheli”.
The song “Kaise jeet lete hain” is from ‘Saajan Bin Suhaagan”.

I will make corrections in the lists.

Nutan is the wife of Rajendra Kumar. Rekha is either his daughter or he wants to adopt her being orphan. Suresh Oberoy is a villain and this is a song before the suspense is cleared. Mark Sulakshana’s repeating ” ha… ya” so nicely.

correction in lyrics:
dekho kyaa khush hoke
paayal ko jhankaare
“jalke” rah jaaye dil
aise kare ishaare
dekho kyaa khush hoke
paayal ko jhankaare
“jalke” rah jaaye dil
aise kare ishaare
‘aage’ mere sitamgar
ghair ke dil me baske
kaisi besharmi se
baat kare hans hans ke

main to hoon ik titli
udne ‘phirne’ waali
kaise rahoongi baithi
ek hi dil ki daali
‘jab’ ek se ek badhke
hain pyaar ke nazaare
‘phir’ kyun na lahraaun
kyun na karoon ishaare

In the film’s story, Rekha is Nutan’s daughter. Nutan had this daughter before she married Rajendra Kumar (similar to the story of Waheeda Rehman and Neetu singh in ‘Kabhi Kabhi’). Rekha finds her estranged mother after growing up and meets her, but she refuses to acknowledge the daughter for fear of spoiling her marriage. Somehow Rajendra Kumar finds out about this, so this drama is taking place in order to make Nutan accept Rekha as her daughter. They did not take Vinod Mehra into confidence, so this unique filmy song situation is created.

Notable thing about this song is Rafi sahab giving playback to a young Vinod Mehra and older Rajendra Kumar, the change in voice for both actors, plus the familiarity of playback voice for Rajendra Kumar of 60’s songs.
