Log peete hain ladkhadaate hain

Posted on: December 18, 2009


This song is an archtypical Hemant Kumar song that I have heard several times. But apart from the knowledge of this being a song sung by Hemant Kumar, I was blank about any other details of this song.

Now I have the details and it turns out that this song is from an obscure movie and it is picturised on an obscure actor. This song is from “Faraar” (1965). Hemant Kumar is the singer as well as the composer of this song and Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. This song was picturised on Anil Chatterji, a well known actor of Bangla movies (but an obscure one for Hindi movies). This song is picturised as a party song.

Anil Chatterji’s foray into Hindi movies, like that of other Bangla movie actors- viz Uttam Kumar, Supriya Chatterji, etc did not prove successful, seeing that this movie is hardly known among movie buffs. But what songs this movie had ! These songs may not have been very popular with aam jantaa, but these songs are great songs to listen to as they are ideal “mental massage” category of songs. And this song is indeed a very nice song to listen to.


Song-Log peete hain ladkhadaate hain (Faraar) (1965) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

log peete hain ladkhadaate hain
dil se duniyaa ka gham mitaate hain
log peete hain ladkhadaate hain
dil se duniya ka gham mitaate hain
ek ham hain ke teri mehfil mein
pyaase aate hain pyaase jaate hain

khush hain sab aur khushi nahin milti
zinda hain zindagi nahin milti
jal rahe hain charaag mein do ke
jal rahe hain charaag mein do ke
aur kahin raushni nahin milti
raushni ka fareb khaate hain
raushni ka fareb khaate hain
pyaase aate hain pyaase jaate hain
log peete hain ladkhadaate hain

mehki mehki huyi fazaa ko salaam
bahki bahki huyi hawaa ko salaam
in bahaaron se to bhali hai khizaan
in bahaaron se to bhali hai khizaan
in bahaaron ki har adaa ko salaam
jinmein sau zakhm muskuraate hain
jinmein sau zakhm muskuraate hain
pyaase aate hain pyaase jaate hain
log peete hain ladkhadaate hain
dil se duniya ka gham mitaate hain
ek ham hain ke teri mehfil mein
pyaase aate hain pyaase jaate hain

This song is indeed quite a forgotten song.

I really wonder why Hemant Kumar’s such nice songs are not performed by the contestants of the reality shows. I am sure if this song would have the lips of Devanand, it could have done wonders! Poor Anil Chatterjee’s bad luck that he didn’t succeed in Hindi movies with such a good support of song and music.
