Jeewan ki bagiya mahkegi

Posted on: January 18, 2009


I have mentioned it that Bollywood heroines of 1970s were averse to playing roles of mothers lest they be regarded as over the hill. In fact, they would often refuse roles where they were shown getting married.

It took Mumtaz to break this taboo. In “Tere Mere Sapne” she not only gets married, she is also shown expecting a child.

And as can be expected, there is a song for each of these occasions in the movie.I have already posted the wedding song (Jaise Radha ne mala japi Shyaam ki). Here is the “expectant parents” song.

The lyrics by Neeraj are very nice and natural. Lata and Kishore Kumar have sung this song beautifully under the music direction of S D Burman.

The song is picturised on Dev Anand and Mumtaz, of course.

Song-Jeewan ki bagiya mahkegi (Tere Mere Sapne) (1971) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Neeraj, MD- S D Burman

Lyrics

hmm
jeewan ki bagiyaa mahkegi, lahkegi hmm
jeewan ki bagiyaa mahkegi, lahkegi, chahkegi
khushiyon ki kaliyaan jhoomengi, jhoolengi, phoolengi
jeewan ki bagiyaa …

wo meraa hogaa, wo sapnaa teraa hogaa
miljul ke maangaa, wo teraa meraa hogaa
jab jab wo muskuraayegaa, apnaa saweraa hogaa …
vo meraa hogaa, vo sapnaa teraa hogaa
miljul ke maangaa, wo teraa meraa hogaa
jab jab wo muskuraayegaa, apnaa saweraa hogaa …
thodaa hamaaraa thodaa tumhaaraa,
aayegaa phir se bachpan hamaaraa
jeewan ki bagiyaa mahkegi, lahkegi, chahkegi
khushiyon ki kaliyaan jhoomengi, jhoolengi, phoolengi
jeewan ki bagiyaa

ham aur bandhenge, ham tum kuchh aur bandhenge
hogaa koyi beech, to ham tum aur bandhenge
baandhegaa dhaagaa kachchaa, ham tum tab aur bandhenge …
kuchh aur bandhenge, ham tum kuchh aur bandhenge
hogaa koyi beech, to ham tum aur bandhenge
baandhegaa dhaagaa kachchaa, ham tum tab aur bandhenge …
thodaa hamaaraa thodaa tumhaaraa
aayegaa phir se bachapan hamaaraa
jeewan ki bagiyaa mahkegi, lahkegi, chahkegi
khushiyon kii kaliyaan jhoomengi, jhoolengi, phoolengi
jeewan ki bagiyaa …

meraa raajdulaaraa, wo jeewan praan hamaaraa
phoolegaa ek phool, khilegaa pyaar hamaaraa
din kaa wo suuraj hogaa, raaton kaa chaand sitaaraa
mera raaj dulaara wo jeewan pran hamaara
phoolegaa ek phool, khilegaa pyaar hamaaraa
din kaa wo sooraj hogaa, raaton kaa chaand sitaaraa…
thodaa hamaaraa thodaa tumhaaraa
aayegaa phir se bachapan hamaaraa
jeewan ki bagiyaa mahkegi, lahkegi, chahakegi
khushiyon ki kaliyaan jhoomengi, jhoolengi, phoolengi
jeewan ki bagiyaa

I always knew this was a good song but today I watched the video again here, listened to the words closely and all I can say is “wow”.
This song is about as perfect and natural as it gets for expectant parents. Not only are Neeraj’s lyrics so meaningful and well-threaded (as always) but S D Burman’s music is also just very very good here. Very well picturised on Mumtaz (Dev is OK but he has never really been great at such soft scenes IMO, a Rajesh would have shown better emotion).

All in all, the more I see this song, the more I am impressed by it.
Especially by Neeraj, SD and Mumtaz.

Mumtaz was a far better actress than people give her credit for.

Look at Kishore’s rendition of this song.What melody , what a voice When Kishore sings you get the feel he is personally bestowing all his affection on his co-star behind the scenes in the garb of Dev Anand by capturing the mood of the song through voice modulations conjointly with Lata to create an absolute magic few today can ever proclaim to possess. Such was the genius of the man

Good summary of the song, Raja.

Thanks for this song. I remember seeing it during my Dev Anand phase with my friends from school. It is a pity that the movie did not do well because the songs were great.

There is another song about expecting a child, “Chanda se hoga woh pyaara …” by Lata and Mahendra Kapoor, I think. I will have to find out which movie it is from and see if it is on Youtube.

Thanks for the songs from Tere mere sapne, Atul.

great blog! another song in this category could be “tumhari palkon ki chilmanon mein ye kya chhupa hai isharey jaisa”

Nice song.

Can’t believe DevAnand was already 47 when he did this movie (looky like a man 🙂 … ). And, Mumtaz as usual …beautiful and charming with full of grace.

Those days Navketan and SD Burman were experimenting with Neeraj lyrics. Movies like “Prem Pujari”, “Gambler”, “Tere Mere Sapne” and “Chhupa Rustam” had some nice songs penned by Neeraj.

I saw this movie back in India on DD (only channel then). Direction, acting, music, lyrics …. all were good but somehow failed to translate at box office (unlike other Devanand movies from that period (i.e “Johny Mera Naam” and “Hare Rama Hare Krishna”).

One more song in this category, Expactant Parent, from “Lajwanti”, when Nargis came to know she is expecting, she sings, “Koi Aaya, Dhadkan kehti hai, dhire se palkon ki chalti uthati chilman kahti hai, koi aaya dhadkan kahti hai”, right ?

Anecdotes about this song:

This was the last song to be recorded. One day, Vijay Anand, the director of the film told S D Burman that he needed the recorded song urgently as he had to shoot this song for which shooting schedule had already been fixed. S D Burman called his music arrangers -Basu Chakravorty and Manohari Singh for recording the song. However, as they were already scheduled to accompany R D Burman to Chennai to record background music for ‘Laakhon Mein Ek’ (1971), they showed their inability to record the song. Not only his music arrangers but some of the musicians of S D Burman were also to accompany R D Burman. In a fit of anger, S D Burman told Basu-Manohari that they would not work with him in the future. He also removed many musicians in his team who were working for R D Burman except Maruti Rao Keer, the Rhythm Specialist. (The reason could be that he worked only for Burmans and never worked for other music directors).

S D Burman called Pandit Hari Prasad Chaurasia, the Flutist and Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, the Santoor player. He gave them the background of the song and told them to arrange the music using only Flute and Santoor but no other musical instruments. There was no rehearsal for music arrangement. Both Hari and Shiv recorded the song using only flute and santoor. Of course, they took liberty to use one rhythm instrument.

[Source: interview of U K Dubey, Rhythm Specialist in S D Burman’s team read with the interview of Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma.].

One can observe from the song that in the interludes, one can hear only flute and santoor as if both Hari and Shiv are doing some kind of jugalbandi. The song came out very good.

I personally feel that by restricting the use of only flute and santoor, S D Burman wanted to show to his musicians that he can compose good music without the use of violins, trumpets, saxophones, guitars,mandolins, sitars, sarods, cellos, accordions etc.,
