Shukriya ae pyaar teraa shukriyaa

Posted on: November 7, 2009


“Aaraam” (1951) was a movie where Dev Anand was the hero. But in this movie one can also see a very young Premnath.

In this movie, one can also see a very young Talat Mehmood. And here, he not only acts, but also sings a song that is picturised on himself.

This song is a ghazal, and this must be one of the earliest ghazals created in Bollywood movies. And it is this song that brought Talat Mehmood to limelight as a singer.

The picturisation shows Talat Mehmood singing this song in a gathering. Talat Mehmood is not seated on a piano, as was the Bollywood tradition for party songs. Rather he has a harmonium with him and he plays the harmonium while singing this song. Considering that he himself sang the song, and the fact that it is actually possible to sing while playng harmonium- this song must be regarded as one of the few realistically picturised party songs of Bollywood movies.

Anil Biswas, who discoverd Talat Mehmood and gave him him his initial break is the music director.

We tend to praise the singer as well as music director and often forget the contribution of the lyricist ? There is no doubt in my mind that it is the lyrics penned by Rajinder Krishan that deserves lot of credit behind the potency of this song. People love this song because of the words which touch the heart strings of the listeners. Rajinder Krishan, in my opinion , was one of the most influential (even though unhyped) of the lyricists of the golden era of Bollywood movie music. And this song is a very good example of his genius.

Song-Shukriya ae pyaar teraa shukriyaa (Aaraam) (1951) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Anil Biswas

Lyrics

shukriyaa, shukriyaa
shukriyaa ae pyaar teraa, shukriyaa
shukriyaa, shukriyaa ae pyaar
dil ko kitnaa khoobsoorat gham diyaa, shukriyaa
dil ko kitnaa khoobsoorat gham diyaa, shukriyaa
shukriyaa ae pyaar teraa shukriyaa
shukriyaa ae pyaar

aankh ko aansoo diye jo motiyon se kam nahin
aankh ko aansoo diye jo motiyon se kam nahin
dil ko itne gham diye ke ab koyi bhi gham nahin
dil ko itne gham diye ke ab koyi bhi gham nahin
meharbaan jo kuchh kiyaa achchhaa kiyaa, shukriyaa
meharbaan jo kuchh kiyaa achchhaa kiyaa, shukriyaa
shukriyaa ae pyaar teraa shukriyaa
Shukriyaa
shukriyaa ae pyaar

zindagi ko dard mein doobe taraane de diye
zindagi ko dard mein doobe taraane de diye
hasraton ko aarzuon ke khazaane de diye
hasraton ko aarzuon ke khazaane de diye
ye navaazish hai teri kyaa kyaa diyaa, shukriyaa
ye navaazish hai teri kyaa kyaa diyaa, shukriyaa
shukriyaa ae pyaar teraa, shukriyaa
shukriyaa

Indeed, realistic picturisation. Talat is just singing, no need to act as such.

Like you say, lovely lyrics. Rajender Kishen was a doyen in his time.

Btw, what does “navaazish” mean ? In this context, it looks like it means “meherbaani”, gift, courtesy, legacy.
Never heard the word before – you know how fond I am of Urdu. 🙂

Lovely song, indeed! I have heard this song before, but I had no idea it was Talat singing for himself. I did notice one thing, though, the seating at the party. All the seats are arranged in rows, as in a theater, so I guess the informal seating arrangements came later. All the guests are sitting so stiffly one wonders if they are truly enjoying themselves. Other than the musical entertainment provided, it was probably a very dull party!

A very melodious song
