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
