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

Deewaane hain deewaanon ko na ghar chaahiye

Posted on: May 30, 2009


I have posted quite a few songs in which two characters, mostly bit actors would sing a song ( often a philosophical song), and a crowd would gather around them to watch their poerformance. After the song, some people in the crowd would part with some small change as a token of their appreciation.

I have posted quite a few such songs, but I had not thought of a category for these songs. Now I have thought of a nomenclature. I have now decided to put them under the category of “roadside tamaasha” song. If any of the readers can suggest a better name, please do so, and I will change the name of the category accordingly.

Here is a well known “roadside tamaasha” song from “Zanjeer” (1973). This was the movie that gave a distinct identity to Amitabh Bachchan, then a strygging actor. It is popularly said that “Zanjeer” made him a star, and “Deewaar” made him the superstar.

In both these movies, Amitabh Bachchan did not sing a song, and that was a wise decision. That way, he could convincingly project the image of a serious, no nonsense, angry young man.

The job of singing songs in these movies was entrusted to bit actors, character actors, heroine, etc.

This particular song in “Zanjeer” is sung by two bit actors. They were Gulshan Baawra and Sanjana. (Thanks, Sy for this information).
The song is “deewaane hain deewaanon ko na ghar chaahiye”. It is sung by Rafi and Lata. Gulshan Baawra ( the one seen in the picturisation) wrote this song and Kalyanji Anandji composed the music.


Song-Deewaane hain deewaano ko na ghar chaahiye (Zanjeer) (1973) Singer-Rafi, Lata , Lyrics- Gulshan Baawra, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

aapke dil me jo thodi si jagah mil jaaye
apne armaanon ki betaab kali khil jaaye

deewaane hain deewano ko na ghar chaahiye
na dar chaahiye
muhabbat bhari ik nazar chaahiye
nazar chaahiye
jawaani me jawaani ke sahaare ho jawaan
mere meharbaan
mujhe tu hi tu hamsafar chaahiye
hamsafar chaahiye
deewaane hain deewaano ko na ghar chahiye
na dar chaahiye
muhabbat bhari ik nazar chaahiye
nazar chaahiye

hai sar pe hamaare khula aasmaan
khula aasmaan
hai sar pe hamaare khula aasmaan
khula aasmaan
hamaare liye hai yahi aashiyaan
yahi aashiyaan
bina pyar ke zindagi kuchh nahin
bina pyar ke zindagi kuchh nahin
jahaan pyaa hai har khushi hai wahin

ho phoolon bhari chahe kaanton bhari
haan kaanton bhari
chale jispe tu wo dagar chaahiye
dagar chaahiye
deewaane hain deewano ko na ghar chahiye
na dar chahiye
muhabbat bhari ik nazar chaahiye
nazar chaahiye

nigaahon me aise ishaare huye
ishaare huye
nigaahon me aise ishaare huye
ishaare huye
ke dil ne kahaa ham tumhaare huye tumhaare huye
nazar ban gayi hai zubaan pyaar me
nazar ban gayi hai zubaan pyaar me
maza aa gaya jeet ka haar me
milega wahi jo maangoge jo dildaar se
magar pyaar se
duaaon me apni asar chaahiye
asar chaahiye
deewaane hain deewano ko na ghar chaahiye
na dar chaahiye
muhabbat bhari ik nazar chaahiye
nazar chaahiye
jawaani me jawaani ke sahaare hon jawaan
mere meharbaan
mujhe tu hi tu hamsafar chaahiye
hamsafar chaahiye

Great song, in fact this is my personal favorite from Zanjeer. Love the way the budding romance of Amitabh-Jaya is portrayed through their eyes while the boisterous pair enact the song on the outside – they’re actually the lyricist Gulshan Bawra himself and an actress named Sanjana.

I remember reading an article before where Mr. Bawra talked about this song; I managed to find it online:

“Bada hi bhola insaan that Rafi, aur badaa hi mehnati gaayak! He has sung so many songs of mine, but to me ‘Deewane hai deewanon ko na ghar chahiye…’ (Zanjeer) will always remain extra special. I remember that Rafisaab ke roze the. Because of the fasting and the restrictions, he was a shade irritable. One ‘take’ of the song had been okayed by the music directors, but co-singer Lataji wanted a retake for some reason. Uncharacteristically, he refused, and said, “Main jaa raha hoon.” I followed him out of the studio and told him, “Paaji, do you know who is going to enact this song on screen? It’s me.” He turned round and asked why I had not told him so before. He came back and gave not one but two takes, and sang in such a way that it would suit my persona!”

Thanks for this lovely nugget of information, Sy. Indeed, one can appreciate the song even better after knowing this information.

Thats a such a nice anecdote! I too love this song from Zanjeer and one can also see how good both actors were.
One can literally feel their thoughts. i didn’t know it was Gulshan Bawra so I now have re watched this with new eyes.

The way it was picturised was very good; while Jaya’s character in the movie could have burst into a song and dance, it would have been totally unfitting for the serious Amitabh.

This is my favourite song from the movie.
