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

Waada karo jaanam naa chhodoge ye daaman

Posted on: May 28, 2009


The most credit for a Bollywood movie song goes ( or should go) to the music director. It is he who gets the lyricist to write the song, decides on the orchestra and tells the singer (s) how to sing the song.

The person who actually does the legwork involved in the recording of the song is the assistant music director. Many great music directors began as assistants to some senior music directors before they became independent music directors.

For instance, Ravi was the assistant of Hemant Kumar, R D Burman was the assistant of his father S D Burman, Laxmikant Pyarelal were the assistants of Kalyanji Anandji.

Then there were some assistants who found the gulf between assistants and full fledged music director too big to bridge. Despite obvious talent, many assistant music directors only managed a few movies as music directors before reverting back to being assistants, or losing out altogether.

Basu and Manohari were those who were less successful as full fledged music directors. After working as assistants to R D Burman, they got an opportunity to work as full fledged music directors in “Sabse Bada Rupaiyya” (1976). And they did a superb job there. The fact that they did not get too many assignment safterwards should not detract from their obvious talent.

The movie is no longer remembered and its songs have been forgotten too, but these songs were very popular during its time and I see no reason why they will not become popular with music buffs if they listen to these songs once again.

Here is a beautiful song from this movie. It was sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata and picturised on Vinod Mehra and Mausami Chatterji.

Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist.

Listening to this song, many people may think that it is R D Burman’s music, but it is not. Basu Manohari are the music directors and the resemblance in music is because they were the assistants to R D Burman for quite some time prior to that.

Just listen to this song. If you are like me, you may like to listen to this song again and again. It is a gem of a song.


Song-Waada karo jaanam naa chhodoge ye daaman (Sabse Bada Rupaiyya) (1976) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Lyrics- Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Basu Manohari

Lyrics

waadaa karo jaanam na chhodoge ye daaman zamaanaa chaahe chhoote
baandhi hai jo dil se ab ye dor zindagi bhar na toote
waadaa karo jaanam na chhodoge ye daaman zamaanaa chaahe chhoote
baandhi hai jo dil se ab ye dor zindagi bhar na toote
waadaa karo jaanam na chhodoge ye daaman zamaanaa chaahe chhoote

badlen na ham tum kabhi rut ye badalti rahe
do dilon ki ye baat chalti hi rahe
ho aake bahaaron ki chhaanv jaati rahe dhalti rahe
naa phire ye nazar dil se dil na roothe
zamaanaa chaahe chhoote
waadaa karo jaanam na chhodoge ye daaman zamaanaa chaahe chhoote
baandhi hai jo dil se ab ye dor zindagi bhar na toote
waadaa karo jaanam na chhodoge ye daaman zamaanaa chaahe chhoote

hone denge aisaa na ham kal ko zamaanaa hanse
yoon karen pyaar kaa naam duniyaa yaad kare
hampe giren bijliyaan aandhi ke toofaan chalen
haath se ye teraa aanchal ab na chhoote
zamaanaa chaahe chhoote
waadaa karo jaanam na chhodoge ye daaman zamaanaa chaahe chhoote
baandhi hai jo dil se ab ye dor zindagi bhar na toote
waadaa karo jaanam na chhodoge ye daaman zamaanaa chaahe chhoote
hmm zamaanaa chaahe chhoote
hmm zamaanaa chaahe chhoote

The other duet of this film was quite popular “Dariya kinare ek bunglow” sung by maestros Kishore – Lata. A Maharashtrian folk tune and lively singing make this song great to listen. Vinod Mehra & Farida Jalal dances on oranges, if i am not forgetting.

Nice Post Atul ji …!!
For us, those who grow up in the seventies, this is a immortal song and and unforgettable one!
Mehmood’s films are also part of our memories and so are the songs from his films !!
