Jab chhaaye kabhi saawan ki ghataa

Posted on: March 9, 2009


I was not aware that Talat Mahmood had ever given playback for Manoj Kumar. But yet, it is true.

Here is a song from “Reshmi Roomaal” (1961) where Talat Mahmood sings for Manoj Kumar. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan wrote the lyrics and the music director was a lesser known name viz Babul.

This song may be less known, but all the attributes of a Talat Mahmood classic can be very much noticed in this song. That way, it is a forgotten gem that needs to be brought up to the notice of Bollywood music lovers.


Song-Jab chaaye kabhi saawan ki ghataa(Reshmi Roomaal) (1961) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-Babul

Lyrics

Jab chaaye kabhi saawan ki ghataa
ro ro ke na karna pyaar mujhe
ai jaane tamanna gham tera
karde na kahin barbaad mujhe
Jab chaaye kabhi saawan ki ghataa

jo mast bahaaren aayin thin
wo rooth gayin iss gulshan se
jo mast bahaaren aayin thin
wo rooth gayin iss gulshan se
jis gulshan me do din ke liye
qismat ne kiya aabaad mujhe
Jab chaaye kabhi saawan ki ghataa

wo raahi hoon pal bhar ke liye
jo zulf ke saaye me thahra
wo raahi hoon pal bhar ke liye
jo zulf ke saaye me thahra
ab le ke gayi hai peer kahin
ab ishq teri bedaag mujhe
Jab chaaye kabhi saawan ki ghataa

ai yaade chaman ab laut bhi jaa
kyun aa gayi tu samjhaane ko
ai yaade chaman ab laut bhi jaa
kyun aa gayi tu samjhaane ko
mujhko mera gham kaafi hai
tu aur na kar naashaad mujhe
Jab chaaye kabhi saawan ki ghataa
ro ro ke na karna pyaar mujhe
ai jaane tamanna gham tera
karde na kahin barbaad mujhe
Jab chaaye kabhi saawan ki ghataa

Another song that I had forgotten completely until I heard it just now. It is a wonderful song, and I had no idea it was filmed on Manoj Kumar. I always connected him with Mahendra Kapoor and Mukesh, and this was a surprise.

That is a rare combination. And as always lovely Talat’s silky voice.
