Ye bahakti ghataayen ye mahakti hawaayen

Posted on: June 1, 2009

Dara Singh, an Arnold Schwarznegger like personality to Indians of 1950s to 1970s, acted in many C grade movies. And as happens with such movies. neither the movie, nor its songs reach the mainstream audience, and majority of people remain oblivious of their exisatence.

Here is a song from “Rustam-e-Rome”(1964). This song was sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. Music director was Suresh Kumar. This song was picturised on Dara Singh and Vijaya Chaudhary.

I am not aware who the lyricist was. I hope someone can throw a light on it.
PS-Now I know (thanks to Veena Seth) that the lyricist is Zafar Rahi.

song-Ye bahakti ghataayen ye mahakti hawaayen (Rustam e Rome) (1964) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Zafar Rahi, MD-Suresh Kumar


ye bahakti ghataayen ye mahakt hawaayen
kah rahin hain hamse tumse jaane kya afsaana
kahti hain ye ghataayen kahti hain ye hawaayen
dhadkanon ke saaz par ab chhed dil ka taraana
ye bahakti ghataayen

kyaa haseen baharein kya jawaan hai mausam
chaa raha hai dil par ik nashe ka aalam
chaa raha hai dil par ik nashe ka aalam
ishq hai husn hai aur phir tanhaayi
ye bahakti ghataayen ahaa ye mahakti hawaayen
kah rahin hain hamse tumse jaane kya afsaana
ye bahakti ghataayen

patharon ke naghme waadiyon ke gaaye
aaj ham khwaabon ki anjuman me aaye
aaj ham khwaabon ki anjuman me aaye
raat din pyaar ke aarzoo sharmaaye
ye bahakti ghataayen ye mahakti hawaayen
kah rahin hain hamse tumse jaane kya afsaana
