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

Kaahe kartaa hai tu itna shor… tera mera ek rastaa

Posted on: September 9, 2009


Here is a song from a lesser known movie called “Ek Paheli” (1971).

This is in fact a rare song as well as a special song.

I call it a rare song because it is sung by Usha Khanna and Rafi. Usha Khanna, normally a music director decided to lend her own voice to Tuntun whereas Rafi sings for Rajendranath.

Just because this song is picturised on Tuntun and Rajendranath, this song is regarded as a comedy song. Yes, it is a song in which Tuntun comes down upon Rajendranath like a ton of bricks, expressing her love for him, whereas Rajendranath tries very hard to shake her off throughout the song.

Now I am firm in my view that love is a birthright of all characters in the movie, not just the hero and the heroine. If hero and heroine sing a song of love, it is called a romantic/ seductive song, but if a set of comedians sing a similar song, it is regarded as a comedy song. I take exception to such thinking. It is a romantic song, as far as I am concerned. Tuntun has as much of a right to fall in love in Bollywood movies as the lead actresses in these movies.

And I wonder why Usha Khanna did not use Tuntun’s own voice. Tuntun, to my mind, will always be close to my heart for her fabulous singing voice. “Afsaana likh rahi hoon dile beqaraar ka” sung by her as Uma Devi is one of the immortal songs from the golden era of Bollywood music.

This song is written by either Asad Bhopali or Omkar Verma. these were the two lyricists credited in this movie, though I am not sure who wrote this song.


Song-O darling I love you.. hai tera mera ek rastaa (Ek Paheli) (1971) Singer-Usha Khanna, Rafi, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali/Omkar Verma, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

o darling I love you
oh no I hate you

kaahe karta hai tu itna shor
o kaahe karta hai tu itna shor
hai tera mera ek rasta
aji ek rasta ek rasta

tera mujhpe chalega nahin zor
haan tera mujhpe chalega naa zor
main tera nahin ho saktaa
ho nahin ho saktaa
nahin ho saktaa

mere mahboob mujhse na hona judaa
teri poojaa karoongi samajhkar Khuda
mere mahboob mujhse na hona judaa
teri poojaa karoongi samajhkar Khuda
teri poojaa karoongi samajhkar Khuda
tu hai chanda to main hoon chakor
ho tu hai chanda to main hoon chakor
hai tera mera ek rasta
aji ek rasta ek rasta
kaahe karta hai tu itna shor
hai tera mera ek rasta

ai Khuda kar judaa aise maashooq se
maar de tu mujhe chaahe bandook se
ai Khuda kar judaa aise maashooq se
maar de tu mujhe chaahe bandook se
maar de tu mujhe chaahe bandook se
janm loongaa kahin jaake aur
haan janm loongaa kahin jaake aur
main teraa nahin ho saktaa
ho nahin ho sakta
nahin ho sakta

tu hai Majnu mera
main hoon Laila teri
tere bin zindagi hai adhoori meri
tu hai Majnu mera
main hoon Laila teri
tere bin zindagi hai adhoori meri
tere bin zindagi hai adhoori meri
main hoon teri patang tu hai dor
ho main hoon teri patang tu hai dor
hai tera mera ek rasta
ek rasta aji ek rasta
kaahe karta hai tu itna shor
hai tera mera ek rastaa

haay
adippa
hadippa

tu sataayegi mujhko to mar jaaungaa
khoon ka tujhpe ilzaam dhar jaaungaa
tu sataayegi mujhko to mar jaaungaa
khoon ka tujhpe ilzaam dhar jaaungaa
khoon ka tujhpe ilzaam dhar jaaungaa
kar zara meri baaton pe gaur
samjhi naa
kar zara meri baaton pe gaur
main tera nahin ho sakta
ho nahin ho sakta
nahin ho sakta
tera mujhpe chalega na zor
main tera nahin ho saktaa

Ha! I see at induna that this is a Feroz Khan-Tanuja starrer, and a horror film at that. Sigh. Why are these things not on DVD with subs, why? It’s very hard to be a firangi fan, I’m telling you. I would buy it just for Rajendranath and Tun Tun.

Yes, Tanuja was the ghost in this movie, I think.

I remember seeing this movie as a young boy.
I remember it had its eerie moments – I think it was a pretty short movie, probably not even 2 hours.
Other than this, I only remember one song “main ek paheli hoon”. Nothing else.
