Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo

Posted on: July 14, 2010


“Hamraaz” (1968) was a suspense movie though one would not realise that from the songs. The movie had Sunil Dutt and Vimmi in lead roles, with Raj Kumar and others for company.

The movie had one hit song after another coming out of it at regular interval interspersed by sporadic dialogues till it was interval, and then the real suspense began.

And another thing to notice about the songs (all huge hits) is that all these songs were sung by Mahendra Kapoor and lip synced by Sunil Dutt. There was not even one single song for Vimmi. And throughout the movie, Vimmi was shown standing like a stautue, with expressionless wooden face. I believe that Vimmi could easily win a lifetime achievement award for the most wooden face in the entire history of Bollywood movies for a lead actress.

The one song where a female voice is heard in this movie is picturised on Mumtaz.

I have so far posted four songs from this movie. Here is one song that had not yet been posted. Here is a stage song from this movie which is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and picturised on Sunil Dutt and other and watched by audience including our Ms Wooden Face of the millenium visible- seated in Manoj Kumar pose (viz. palm covering the face).

The song is written by Sahir Ludhianvi and music is composed by Ravi.

song-Naa munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo (Hamraaz) (1968) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

aaa aaa
aaa aaa
na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo
ho na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo
ghamon kaa daur bhi aaye to muskuraa ke jiyo
na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo
ho na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo

ghataa mein chhupke sitaare fanaa nahin hote
ghataa mein chhupke sitaare fanaa nahin hote
andheri raat ke
andheri raat ke dil mein diye jalaa ke jiyo
na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo
ghamon kaa daur bhi aaye to muskuraa ke jiyo
na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo

na jaane kaun sa pal maut ki amaanat ho
na jaane kaun sa pal maut ki amaanat ho
harek pal ki
har ek pal ki khushi ko gale lagaakar jiyo
na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo
ho ghamon kaa daur bhi aaye to muskuraa ke jiyo
na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo

ye zindagi kisi manzil pe ruk nahin sakti
ye zindagi kisi manzil pe ruk nahin sakti
har ik maqaam se e e
he e e
har ik maqaam se aage qadam badhaa ke jiyo
na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo
ho na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo
ghamon kaa daur bhi aaye to muskuraa ke jiyo
na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo
na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo
ho na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo
ho na munh chhupaa ke jiyo aur na sar jhukaa ke jiyo

Oh, this was not posted yet? This is one of my favourites!!!
Mahendra Kapoor gets a chance to show his range here. And of course Sahir’s lyrics are great – as usual!

You are right about Vimi. She is the MOST wooden face I have ever come across in Hindi cinema. I saw her in Aabroo also – and she was even worse in that movie.

Maybe that is why Sahir coined the song “kisi patthar ki moorat se mohabbat ka iraada hai”, which Sunil Dutt sings to Vimi in this movie. 😉

Indeed Sahir took inspiration for that song from her. I have no doubt about that.;)

Atulji,
Just confused about the year this movie was released. Is it 1967 or 68? HFGK says 1967.
Thanks

Thanks Sadanandji for the info. Is the censor cerificate date is considered the release date? I am not a pundit in this field but sounds like CCD may be Oct 16, 1967 but movie may have been released in 1968. According to WIKI, movie year is 1967 but it won awards in 1968.

Release date of a film is the date on which it is released in theatre/s. I have given the CC date just to strengthen the presumption that the film was released in 1967 as in majority of cases, a producer will release the film at his earliest after getting CC.
Film awards like National Film Award and Filmfare Award are given for the films normally released during the previous calendar year.

By the way, as per http://www.myswar.com, HUMRAAZ was released in 1967 same as mentioned in HFGK.

Thank you Sadanandji for the clarification.
