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

Ajnabi se banke karo na kinaaraa

Posted on: November 21, 2009


It is quite common for me to remark that many of the songs being posted are songs that I came across only recently. And I also find myself remarking frequently that I found these songs to be gem stuff, even though the movies as well as the songs contained in these movies failed to get popular.

Here is a song like that. It is from “Ek Raaz” (1963). This movie had Kishore Kumar and Jamuna in lead roles. The movie was a flop at the box office and the songs of the movie did not become popular as a result. But now when one gets to listen to the songs of this movie, one can only be amazed at the quality of these songs. The fact that those were the days when countless quality songs were being produced may also have contributed to the fact that many great songs of those era found themselves to be elbowed out from contention.

Listening to this song and watcching the picturisation, I feel that this is a song that has the ability to tug at the heart strings of the listeners and bowling them over. Kishore Kumar’s voice sound as sweet and innocently playful as in the song “Zaroorat hai zaroorat hai” (Manmauji). And Lata’s voice sounds even sweeter. Majrooh Sultanpuri has come up with a very nice heart touching playful love song. The way the girl teases the boy in the last para is priceless:
—————————————-
ye to bata do milna hai phir kahaan
ik nazar hai kaafi
kya milnaa phir dubaara

Translation

Boy- Tell me when will we meet again
Girl- Meeting once is enough to size one up, so it may not be necessary for us to meet again
————————————–
This exchange will cause any boy’s heart to sink, but luckily for him, the girl is only teasing him.

Music of this song is created by that eternally underachiving but hugely talented Chitragupta.


Song-Ajnabi se banke karo naa kinaaraa (Ek raaz) (1963) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri,MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

ajnabi se ban ke karo na kinaaraa
ajnabi se ban ke karo na kinaaraa
khudaaraa idhar bhi dekho
idhar bhi khudaaraa
aap kaa to dil hai deewaanaa bechaaraa
aap kaa to dil hai deewaanaa bechaaraa
ishaaraa na samajhegaa ye
nazar kaa ishaaraa
ajnabi se ban ke

ho ho ho
ham na padenge nazron ki chaah mein
phir chal rahi ho kyun meri raah mein
ho ho ho
ham na padenge nazron ki chaah mein
phir chal rahi ho kyun meri raah mein
ho ho ho
la : bekhudi mein ham ko mausam ne thaa pukaaraa
ajnabi se ban ke karo na kinaaraa
khudaaraa idhar bhi dekho
idhar bhi khudaaraa
ajnabi se ban ke

ho ho ho
betaab dil hai aisii bhii chaal kyaa
dil hai tumhaaraa ham jaane haal kyaa
ho ho ho
betaab dil hai aisii bhii chaal kyaa
dil hai tumhaaraa ham jaane haal kyaa
ho ho ho
dekhiye nazar mein afsaanaa hai hamaaraa
aap kaa to dil hai deewaanaa bechaaraa
ishaaraa na samjhegaa ye
nazar ka ishaara
ajnabi se ban ke

ho ho ho
ye lo chale ham chalta hai ye samaa
ye to bata do milna hai phir kahaan
ho ho ho
ye lo chale ham chalta hai ye samaa
ye to bata do milna hai phir kahaan
ho ho ho
ik nazar hai kaafi
kya milnaa phir dubaara
ajnabi se ban ke karo na kinaaraa
khudaaraa idhar bhi dekho
idhar bhi khudaaraa
aap kaa to dil hai deewaanaa bechaaraa
ishaaraa na samajhegaa ye
nazar kaa ishaaraa
ajnabi se ban ke

I have no idea why this film wasn’t popular either, it is really a good one!

The movie was a low budget movie. And lack of financial muscle could have come in the way of this movie competing with the big banner movies of the day.
