Aadmi chiraagh hai uski chalegi kyaa

Posted on: July 9, 2010


One song from “Barkha” was discussed in the past where Jagdeep is shown driving a bullock cart and singing a song. It turns out that Jagdeep has another song in the movie and this time he sings it while ferring a few people in a boat. One actor lip syncing two songs while using two different modes of transportation ! It must be quite rare, I am sure. I have not seen the movie, and so I cannot say for sure if Jagdeep is shown singing more songs in this movie while riding bicycle, buffalo, helicopter etc. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this matter.

One thing that everyone notices in songs picturised on Jagdeep is that he cannot keep a straight face and put up a sombre face even when the situation so demads. Jagdeep looks like breaking into a laughter even in serious situations. Lip syncing this song certainly demanded Jagdeep to be do so with a serious and grim face, but no, he cannot help grin even in a song like this.

There have been several great Rafi songs that have been sadly wasted on Jagdeep and this song is one such song. It took quite a movies on the part of B grade movie makers before then finally wrote Jagdeep off as a serious hero.

This song is better heard than watched and the song is a fantastic philosophical song. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composeed by Chitragupta.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by nahm.

Lyrics(Provided by nahm)

chhod bhi de
majdhaar mein naao
le kar uss ka naam
paar utaare
yaa woh duboye
jaane apne kaam

aadmi chiraag hai
usski chalegi kyaa
chalti hawaa ke saamne
woh bhi majboor hai
main bhi majboor hoon
uss ki razaa ke saamne
ho ho
aadmi chiraag hai
usski chalegi kya
chalti hawaa ke saamne

teraa kaam hai yehi
bas kaam kiye jaa
mat soch yeh tu
anjaam hai kyaa
teraa kaam hai yehi
bas kaam kiye jaa
mat soch yeh tu
anjaam hai kyaa
woh kaanton ki sej de
yaa phoolon ki
jhukne ke siwaa teraa
kaam hai kyaa
jhukne ke siwaa teraa
kaam hai kyaa
aadmi chiraag hai
usski chalegi kyaa
chalti hawaa ke saamne
ho ho
tu bhi majboor hai
main bhi majboor hoon
uss ki razaa ke saamne

kayee doob ke bhanwar mein bhi
bach nikle
kayee reh gaye doob ke
kinaare par
kayee doob ke bhanwar mein bhi
bach nikle
kayee reh gaye doob ke
kinaare par
woh nadi ho ya naao
yaa aandhi ho
sabhi chalte hain uss ke
ishaare par
sabhi chalte hain uss ke
ishaare par
aadmi chiraag hai
usski chalegi kyaa
chalti hawaa ke saamne
ho ho
tu bhi majboor hai
main bhi majboor hoon
uss ki razaa ke saamne
