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

Jaaneman jaaneman tere do nayan

Posted on: May 22, 2009


Most Bollywood movies are make believe ones where the main characters lead dream lives that are far removed from reality.

But every now and then, we would have movies telling the stories of real life people. Many of these movies failed at the box office, because people apparently went to movies to escape reality, not to experience it. This was a standard line taken by movie experts to explain why movies telling the stories of common people fared poorly.

In 1970s, things changed. Movies telling the lives of boys and girls next door came along and received good rsponse from movie goers.

Directors like Basu Chatterji, Basu Bhattacharya ( the two are different, but I cannot tell them apart), Hrishikesh Mukherji and a few others would make these kinds of heartwarming movies.

Basu Chatterji’s “Chhoti Si Baat” (1975) is a movie that is fondly remembered to this day. It was a refreshing change for movie watchers to have a hero like Amol Palekar, who unlike matinee idols looked like an ordinary man, unsure of himself, nervous while interacting with the other sex, weak and meek looking, and as a result being taken for granted and ripped off by others.

Vidya Sinha, the heroine played the girl next door facing the same dilemma as Amol Palekar. But compared to Amol Palekar, she indeed had filmstar good looks, but then many girls next door indeed have filmstar good looks. And she looked so realistic portraying the girl next door leading her life in Bombay of 1970s.

The songs of this movie touch the heart of the movie watchers just as much as the story itself.

Take this song “jaaneman jaaneman tere do nayan” for instance. Amol Palekar watches this song on a movie screen with Dharmendra and Hema Malini singing this song. Like a true ordinary boy next door, Amol Palekar begins to imagine singing the same song alongwith Vidya Sinha. And having sung the entire song in his fantasy, Amol Palekar finds himself brought back to reality with a jolt.

It is indeed a very realistic situation, and a very amusing one too, as long as it is at the cost of Amol Palekar and not at your own cost.

It is a very heart warming song, sung so nicely by Yesudas and Asha Bhonsle. With this movie, Yesudas made his debut as a playback singer in Bollywood. And what a nice debut song for him to sing !

Yogesh wrote the lyrics and Salil Chowdhary composed the music. If I am not mistaken , this was the last movie for Salil Chowdhary as a music director. and he certainly signed off in style.

Lyrics

ho jaaneman jaaneman tere do nayan
chori chori leke gaye dekho meraa man
jaaneman jaaneman jaaneman
mere do nayan, chor nahin sajan
tumse hi khoyaa hogaa kahin tumhaaraa man
jaaneman jaaneman jaaneman
jaaneman jaaneman tere do nayan
chori chori leke gaye dekho meraa man
jaaneman jaaneman jaaneman
mere do nayan, chor nahin sajan
tumse hi khoyaa hogaa kahin tumhaaraa man
jaaneman jaaneman haa jaaneman

tod de dilon ki doori, aisi kyaa hai majboori
dil dil se milne de
haa, abhi to huyi hai yaari, abhi se hi beqaraari
din to zaraa dhalne de
tod de dilon ki doori, aisi kyaa hai majaboori
dil dil se milne de
haa, abhi to huyi hai yaari, abhi se hi beqaraari
din to zaraa dhalne de
yahi sunte, samajhte, guzar gaye jaane kitne hi saawan
jaaneman jaaneman tere do nayan
chori chori leke gaye dekho meraa man
jaaneman jaaneman jaaneman
mere do nayan, chor nahin sajan
tumse hi khoyaa hogaa kahin tumhaaraa man
jaaneman jaaneman jaaneman

sang sang chale mere, maare aage peechhe fere
samjhoon main tere iraade
doshh teraa hai ye to, har din jab dekho
karti ho jhoothe vaade
sang sang chale mere, maare aage peechhe fere
samjhoon main tere iraade jaa
doshh teraa hai ye to, har din jab dekho
karti ho jhoothe vaade
tu na jaane, deewaane, dikhaaun tujhe kaise main ye dil ki lagan
ho jaaneman jaaneman tere do nayan
chori chori leke gaye dekho meraa man
jaaneman jaaneman jaaneman
mere do nayan, chor nahin sajan
tumse hi khoyaa hogaa kahin tumhaaraa man
jaaneman jaaneman haa jaaneman

chhedenge kabhi na tumhe, zaraa batlaado hame,
kab tak ham tarsenge
haan aise ghabaraao nahin, kabhi to kahin na kahin
baadal ye barsenge
chhedenge kabhi na tumhe, zaraa batlaado hame,
kab tak ham tarsenge
haan aise ghabraao nahin, kabhi to kahin na kahin
baadal ye barsenge
kyaa karenge baraske, ke jab murjhaayegaa ye saaraa chaman
ho jaaneman jaaneman tere do nayan
chori chori leke gaye dekho meraa man
jaaneman jaaneman jaaneman
mere do nayan, chor nahin sajan
tumse hi khoyaa hogaa kahin tumhaaraa man
jaaneman jaaneman ho jaaneman

Atul, Wonderful song! Thanks so much for movie. The movie itself was a charming one, especially the cute, beautifully underplayed romance between Amol and Vidya.

Indeed this was one lovely movie to watch.

i remember seeinng the movie. this film completely changed viewing films. many film followed suit. Arth Sathya. ANKUR .27 Down a lot more claimed public attention.

iiiiiiiiiiii……….. jus luvvvv dis song!!!!!!!!! its wonderful………………..

This is another one of my favourite numbers – made special by the fact that yesudas has brought it to life and that it is pictured on vidya sinha and amol palekar. It is a lovely movie and evergreen. Though the last time i watched it must be some 30 yrs back, I can still recall most of it! Since then I must have watched scores of movies – most better forgotten than remembered – and cant say i can recall very much of them or that there was much to recall them for! Goes to show what deep impact some of the olden golden gems have on us!

cute movie 😀 n a sweet song 😉
