Kabhi gham se dil lagaayaa

Posted on: April 30, 2010


Getting a break in Bollywood is a Herculean task. And even after getting a break, making your mark and having a successful career is not assured. In fact, even when you make your mark, there is no guarantee that you would continue to get breaks in Bollywood.

There have been many music directors, who despite giving outstanding music found themselves out of job for reasons that had nothing to do with their competence. I have already posted several outstanding songs from many lesser known music directors.

One such lesser known music director was Shamji Ghanshamji. He was just one man,who had thought of this name to sound like a music director duo (hoping to add some weight to his name, I suppose). He created some very good songs in 1970s.But he was starved of opportunities and he soon found himself elbowed out of the rat race.

Here is one of his compositions that was played a lot on loudspeakers those days. This song is from a B grade movie called “Daaku” (1975) which had Kabir Bedi, Vijay Arora, Bindu, Laxmi Chhaaya etc.

I do not have access to the video, so I have no idea about the picturisation of this song. This song is sung by Narendra Chanchal, who was a Bhajan singer basically and his unique bhajan singing voice was used in Bollywood movies to sing mostly “beggar” songs, “Bhajan” songs etc. Chaman Lahori is the lyricist.

As can be seen from the names associated with this movie and the song, obscurity is written all over the movie and the people involved with it.This song of course managed to become reasonably popular.

PS- Video of the song too is available. It shows Kabir Bedi playing the Daaku, escaping on horseback while being chased by Policemen on jeep/ horseback, while this song plays in the background.

Song-Kabhi gham se dil lagaayaa(Daakoo) (1975) Singer-Narendra Chanchal, Lyrics-Chaman Lahori, MD-Shamji Ghanshamji

Lyrics

kabhi gham se dil lagaaya
ho
kabhi ashk ke sahaare
kabhi shab guzaari roke
kabhi gin ke chaand taare
kabhi gin ke chaand taare
kabhi gin ke chaand taare
kabhi gham se dil lagaaya

ghame aashiqui ke sadme
mujhe aur de naa hamdam
ghame aashiqui ke sadme
mere din guzar rahe hain
mere din guzar rahe hain
teri yaad ke sahaare
teri yaad ke sahaare
teri yaad ke sahaare
teri yaad ke sahaare
kabhi gham se dil lagaayaa

gulshan parast main hoon
ahle chaman se keh do
gulshan parast main hoon
khoon e jigar se ham ne
khoon e jigar se ham ne
phoolon ke rukh nikhaare
phoolon ke rukh nikhaare
phoolon ke rukh nikhaare
phoolon ke rukh nikhaare
kabhi gham se dil lagaaya

tujhe waasta Khudaa ka
zaraa dekh le idhar bhi
tujhe waasta Khudaa ka
ghabraa ke mar na jaayen
ghabraa ke mar na jaayen
shab e hijr gham ke maare
shab e hijr gham ke maare
shab e hijr gham ke maare
shab e hijr gham ke maare
kabhi gham se dil lagaaya

maujon main hai safeena
aye nakhuda karun kya
maujon main hai safeena
doobey huey hain meri
doobey huey hain meri
ummeed ke kanaare

ummeed ke kanaare
ummeed ke kanaare
kabhi gham se dil lagaaya

thukra rahi hai duniya
har baam pe mujhi ko
thukra rahi hai duniya
koi nahin hai aisa
koi nahin hai aisa
taqdeer jo sanwaare
taqdeer jo sanwaare
taqdeer jo sanwaare
taqdeer jo sanwaare
kabhi gham se dil lagaaya
kabhi ashk ke sahaare
kabhi shab guzaari roke
kabhi gin ke chaand taare
kabhi gham se dil lagaaya
