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

Zamaane ne maare jawaan kaise kaise

Posted on: August 4, 2010


“Bahaaron Ke Sapne” was one of the earliest movies of Rajesh Khanna before his pre- superstardom days. In this movie, Rajesh Khanna plays an ordinary man who has ordinary worries, viz he is looking for a job.

This song is in fact a “job hunt” song. Rajesh Khanna is shown going from one office to another in Bombay and he fails to land a job anywhere. The picturisation shows some well known landmarks of Bombay. It is interesting to see how Gateway of India looked in 1960s. The place looks far less crowded that it is now a days. Many more structures have cropped up in its vicinity now a days that were not there those days. For instance, Sachin Tendulkar’s restaurant, which has sprung up now a days was obviously not there those days. In fact, Sachin Tendulkar himself was yet to be born at that time.

The song is a background song which gets played as Rajesh Khanna goes from one office to another.Rafi is the singer. Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote this poignant song and music was composed by R D Burman.

Lyrics

zamaane ne maare jawaan kaise-kaise
zamaane ne maare jawaan kaise-kaise
zameen khaa gayi aasmaan kaise-kaise
zamaane ne maare jawaan kaise-kaise

pale the jo kal rang mein phool mein
kahin kho gaye raah ki dhool mein
pale the jo kal rang mein phool mein
kahin kho gaye raah ki dhool mein
huye dar-ba-dar kaarwaan kaise-kaise
zamaane ne maare jawaan kaise-kaise
zameen khaa gayi aasmaan kaise-kaise
zamaane ne maare jawaan kaise-kaise

hazaaron ke tan jaise sheeshe hon choor
jalaa dhoop mein kitni aankhon kaa noor
hazaaron ke tan jaise sheeshe hon choor
jalaa dhoop mein kitni aankhon kaa noor
hain chehron pe gham ke nishaan kaise-kaise
zamaane ne maare jawaan kaise-kaise
zameen khaa gayi aasmaan kaise-kaise
zamaane ne maare jawaan kaise-kaise

Thanks Atul. ‘Baharon Ke Sapne’ is one of RD Burman’s best IMO and this is one of my favorite Rafi numbers. The lyrics, the composition, Rafi’s singing and the picturization is just beautiful. It’s a lovely film too except towards the end. Memsaab wrote on it some time back. And Rajesh looks sooo good 🙂

Where a Rajesh song is posted, can Suhan be far behind? 😉
He is right up there for me too, so you will not find me ever complaining about a Rajesh song. Especially if it is pre-1976. 🙂

This is a lovely song, Atul. Loved the picturisation. Not just Gateway of India but even Marine Drive (and other parts of downtown Bombay) look far less crowded here.

I was a bit surprised to see Ambassador cars, I thought Fiat had already taken over Bombay by then. 🙂 And that LIC Building? Nice to see all these landmarks of Bombay.

My favorite thing in the picturization is the peanut test—well, Rajesh’s character obviously knows the value of a peanut as does anyone who has seen the gritty side of life.

Btw, Atul, today is Kishore’s birthday. And the songs–even the RK songs (which were mostly Kishore songs)–have Rafi 😉

@ Raja–Hah! Is that my footprint in the interwebs, stalking Rajesh? 🙂

@Suhan, ab mera munh mat khulwao..just kidding, using a typical cliche. 🙂
Have seen your comments on memsaab’s blog re Rajesh, hence my comment here. Nothing more sinister than that. 🙂
