Phoolon ki tarah wo hansti thi

Posted on: November 22, 2009


People of my generation were aware of a Hindi movie called “College Girl” (1978) which had a hit Kishore Kumar song, viz. Pyaar maanga hai tumhi se na inkaar karo. Old generation music lovers though were more aware of another movie of the same name that was released in 1960. This movie, viz. “College Girl” (1960) had several nice songs sung by Rafi in it.

So when I came across this Rafi song from “College Girl”, I took it for granted that it was from “College Girl” (1960). It sounded like a song of 1960s alright.

Now, more than three years later, I have come to know (thanks to information provided by Atif M) that this Rafi song is from “College Girl” (1978) and not from “College Girl” (1960).

So here is this song from “College Girl” (1978) whicjh is sung by Rafi. Dev Kohli is the lyricist and music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

And this song, which for some explicable reason , failed to get popular. Listening to this song for the first time, I could not but help feel that this was one of the best ghazals that I had come across.

This is one song that I never got to hear during its time.

If Bappi Lahiri’s songs like this did not get popular then one should not blame him for later on composing songs of the nature that required less creativity but yielded rich dividends for him.


Song-phoolon ki tarah wo hansti thi (College Girl) (1978) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Dev Kohli, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

aaa aaa aaa aaa
phoolon ki tarah wo hansti thi
kaliyon ki tarah muskaati thi
wo tumse bilkul milti hai
khwaabon mein mere jo aati thi
phoolon ki tarah wo hansti thi
kaliyon ki tarah muskaati thi
wo tumse bilkul milti hai
khwaabon mein mere jo aati thi
phoolon ki tarah wo hansti thi

jeewan ki dhadkan bankar wo
chhaa jaati thi in saanson mein
aur main bhi doobaa rahta thaa
uski matwaali aankhon mein
tum jaise sharmaa jaati ho
aisi hi wo sharmaati thi
phoolon ki tarah wo hansti thi

tum mere tasawwur mein aakar
aksar khaamosh si rahti thi
na main tujhse kuchh kahtaa thaa
na tu mujhse kuchh kahti thi
kuchh maine agar kahnaa chaahaa
teri nazar jhuk jaati thi
phoolon ki tarah wo hansti thi

honthon ko izaajat tum de do
izhaar muhabbat ka kar loon
kahdo agar jo aaj mujhe
in baahon mein tumko bhar loon
ye pyaari si soorat hai wohi
din raat nazar jo aati thi
phoolon ki tarah wo hansti thi
kaliyon ki tarah muskaati thi
wo tumse bilkul milti hai
khwaabon mein mere jo aati thi
phoolon ki tarah wo hansti thi

Just listened to this song for the first time now.
What a lovely song it is.
Rafi saab’s voice is divine, as usual.

Indeed it is a song with a difference. And what a song !
