Raah bani khud manzil

Posted on: April 28, 2010


I have posted three songs from “Kohraa” (1964). Each of these songs are immortal songs that one can listen to any number of times.

Here is another song from “Kohraa” (1964). And this song is just as immortal ! One wonders how the musical geniuses of those days could create such masterpieces in such abundance.

I have listened to this song many a times, and till today, I had only heard the song, without being aware about the details of this song. Now I have come to know that this song is from “Kohraa”. I watched the picturisation of this song only just now and found that the song was picturised on Vishwajeet and Waheeda Rehman.

The song is written by Kaifi Azmi. Hemant Kumar is the singer as well as the music director.

This song is a “car” song, where Vishwajeet and Waheeda Rehman are seated in a car, and Vishwajeet sings this song while driving. And since this is a movie and not real life, Waheeda Rehman does not nag him to concentrate on his driving instead of singing. Or may be, she does not nag him because she may not have become his wife till then in the movie. 🙂

It is Lalitha, who reminded me that this song was still missing from this blog. She always thanks me in advance and also after I post songs on her farmaishes, and I think I should also thank her for telling me about such classy songs which I may have missed posting in the past. Thanks a lot, Lalitha, for informing me about such great songs. What a song this is ! It has made my day.

Song-Raah bani khud manzil (Kohraa) (1964) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

raah bani khud manzil
peechhe rah gaye mushkil
saath jo aaye tum
raah bani khud manzil
peechhe rah gaye mushkil
saath jo aaye tum
raah bani khud manzil

dekho phool ban ke
saari dharti khil padi
dekho phool ban ke
saari dharti khil padi
guzre aarzoo ke raaston se jis ghadi
jism churaaye tu
raah bani khud manzil
peechhe rah gaye mushkil
saath jo aaye tum
raah bani khud manzil

jharnaa keh rahaa hai
mere dil ki daastaan
jharnaa keh rahaa hai
mere dil ki daastaan
meri pyaas lekar
chhaa rahi hain mastiyaan
jin me nahaaye tum
dil mein na aaye tum
raah bani khud manzil
peechhe rah gaye mushkil
saath jo aaye tum
raah bani khud manzil

panchhi ud gaye sab
gaa ke naghmaa pyaar kaa
panchhi ud gaye sab
gaa ke naghmaa pyaar kaa
lekin dil ne aisaa
jaal phenkaa pyaar kaa
udne na paaye tum
raah bani khud manzil
peechhe rah gaye mushkil
saath jo aaye tum

Thanks for the song, Atul! I just wanted to point out one little item: it looks like Waheeda is already married to Biswajeet in this song! Besides, I don’t know about Mrs. Atul, but when we go somewhere and my hubby starts singing, I also join in my besura voice! It definitely sounds like I need to have a little chat with Mrs. Atul!
