Tu pyaar ka saagar hai

Posted on: March 16, 2009


Meena Kumari is regarded as the first great tragedy queen of Bollywood movies. But in reality that crown rightfully belongs to Nutan. Nutan had begun playing tragic roles as early as 1955 when Meena Kumari was still playing happy bubbly roles.

The first movie where Nutan played a sad tragic role was in “Seema” (1955). Though Nutan played the central role, this movie had some great songs sung by male singers as well. I have already posted a great Rafi song from this movie viz “kahaan jaa raha hai”.

Here is an equally well known ( or perhaps better known) song from this movie. This song “tu pyaar ka saagar hai” is in fact an iconic song. It was sung by Manna Dey. Shailendra was the lyricist and Shankar Jaikishan had composed the music of this song.


Song-Tu pyaar ka saagar hai (Seema) (1955) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD- Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

tu pyaar kaa saagar hai
tu pyaar kaa saagar hai
teri ik boond ke pyaase ham
teri ik boond ke pyaase ham
lautaa jo diyaa tumne,
lautaa jo diyaa tumne, chale jaayenge jahaan se ham
chale jaayenge jahaan se ham
tu pyaar kaa saagar hai
tu pyaar kaa saagar hai
teri ik boond ke pyaase ham
teri ik boond ke pyaase ham
tu pyaar kaa saagar hai
hmm hmm hmm

ghaayal man kaa, paagal panchhi udne ko beqaraar
udne ko beqaraar
pankh hain komal, aankh hai dhundhli, jaanaa hai saagar paar
jaanaa hai saagar paar
ab tu hi ise samjhaa
ab tu hi ise samjhaa, raah bhoole the kahaan se ham
raah bhoole the kahaan se ham
tu pyaar kaa saagar hai
teri ik boond ke pyaase ham
teri ik boond ke pyaase ham
tu pyaar kaa saagar hai
hmm hmm hmm

idhar jhoomke gaaye zindagi, udhar hai maut khadi
udhar hai maut khadi
koyi kyaa jaane kahaan hai seemaa, uljhan aan padi
uljhan aan padi
kaanon mein zaraa kah de
kaanon mein zaraa kah de, ki aaye kaun dishaa se ham
ki aaye kaun dishaa se ham
tu pyaar kaa saagar hai
teri ik boond ke pyaase ham
teri ik boond ke pyaase ham
tu pyaar kaa saagar hai
tu pyaar kaa saagar hai

As I listen to this song, I never fail to get depressed…something about the combination of music, what the lyrics evoke and most of all Manna Dey’s voice- I don’t really know why.

So I try not to listen to it too often, as it is “depression song” in my category!

Excellent song!! One of the greatest of Manna Dey’s many good songs. True, it is depressing but it touches the heart so intensely, that it is hard to forget.
