Jurm e ulfat pe hamen log sazaa dete hain

Posted on: June 19, 2009


“Tajmahal” (1963) was a musical blockbuster and its songs had swept classes and masses off their feet in 1963. This movie was the pinnacle of Roshan’s career. In fact, 1963 was a year in which Roshan was at the peak of his career. Several of his movies released this year were musical blockbusters.

Here is one of the “lesser” known songs from this movie. By that I mean that this song is lesser known to me. In fact, I first heard this song just today !

This song is sung by Lata and it is written by Sahir Ludhianvi. This song is picturised on Bina Rai, Pradeep Kumar and others.

Song-zurme ulfat pe hamen log sazaa dete hain ( Tajmahal) (1963) Singer-Lata, Lyrics- Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

aaa aaa
jurm-e-ulfat pe hamen log sazaa dete hain
jurm-e-ulfat pe hamen log sazaa dete hain
kaise naadaan hain, sholon ko hawaa dete hain
kaise naadaan hain

hamse deewaane kahin tar ke wafaa karte hain
hamse deewaane kahin tar ke wafaa karte hain
jaan jaaye ke rahe baat nibhaa dete hain
jaan jaaye

takht kyaa cheez hai aur laal-o-jawaahar kyaa hai
takht kyaa cheez hai aur laal-o-jawaahar kyaa hai
ishq waale to khudaayi bhi lutaa dete hain
ishq waale

hamne dil de bhi diyaa ahad-e-wafaa le bhi liyaa
hamne dil de bhi diyaa ahad-e-wafaa le bhi liyaa
aap ab shauk se deden jo sazaa dete hain
jurm-e-ulfat pe hamen log sazaa dete hain

You had been missing something in life! Its a beautiful ghazal, one of Lata’s best.

Sahir Ludhianvi was a wonderful poet, especially in films like these. Some wonderful urdu, yet easy enough for most people to follow!

It indeed is one of the best but if you listen carefully she sounds a bit nasal!

All the songs in this movie are best but this is my favourite song.

A somewhat similar sentiment is expressed in a line of a song written by Satyendra Athiayya, also composed by Roshan, from ANHONEE(1952) ‘ ……dil ki daulat ke aage duniya ke khazane kuchh bhi nahin’

Perhaps both the poets got inspiration from events which led British King Edward VIII preferring abdication of the British throne to marry a twice divorced commoner some time in late 30’s.

I just found out that the recorded version has one more couplet which comes between 2nd and 3rd stanzas of the lyrics posted above. The lyrics :

aap daulat ke taraaju mein dilon ko tolen
app daulat ke taraaju mein dilon ko tolen
hum mohabbat se mohabbat ka silaa dete hain
hum mohabbat se

Following audio link is including the 2nd stanza;
aap daulat ke taraaju mein dilon ko tolen
app daulat ke taraaju mein dilon ko tolen
hum mohabbat se mohabbat ka silaa dete hain
hum mohabbat se

this song is preceded with the mushaira as given below;

apne chehre se wo pardaa aa
jo uthhaa dete hain
apne chehre se wo pardaa aa aa
jo uthhaa dete hain ae ae
rang gulzaar ke phoolon ka
udaa deten hain
maiqadey unki nigaahon mein
base rehte hain ae ae
wo jise dekh le ae
mastaana banaa dete hain

bewafaai se wafaaon ka silaa
dete hain
bewafaai ee se wafaaon ka silaa
dete hain ae ae
kaise bedard hain
kya lete hain kya dete hain
aise baithhen hain ke
jaise hamen dekhaa hi nahin
aise baithhen hain ke
jaise hamen dekhaa hi nahin
yahi andaaz to
deewaanaa banaa dete hain

naa logon hamse
haseenon ko sazaa dete hain
naa logon hamse
haseenon ko sazaa dete hain
qadrdaani hi muhabbat kaa
silaa dete hai
qadrdaani hi

ishq kya hai ye
shahenshahon se poochhe koyi ee
husn ko takht e hukumat pe
bithhaa dete hain
husn ko takht e

aap daulat ke taraazu mein ae ae
dilon ko toley ae ae
ham muhabbat se
muhabbat ka silaa dete hain

HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970) mentioned song no.4 in this movie’s list as ‘apne chehre se wo pardaa … jurm e ulfat pe hamen log sazaa dete hain’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar, however Akshay Manwani’s book mentioned the ‘mushaira’ as seperate song and sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Minoo Puroshottam, Asha Bhonsle and Suman Kalyanpur.
