Aa zaraa mere hamnasheen

Posted on: August 11, 2010

It may be just my perception (and I will be happy to be proven wrong) but I think 1981 was a sort of musical compensation for 1980. Maybe it is just my taste but 1980 was one of those run-of-the-mill years for me as far as pleasant music is concerned.

There may have been “chatpata” songs like in Shaan but, except for the exceptions like “tu is tarah se meri zindagi”, I cannot recall very many soft songs with lilting music.

1981, on the other hand, was an embarrassment of riches. Silsila, Love Story, Baseraa, Ek Duuje Ke Liye – each one known for its pleasant songs.

In this crowded space, there was still space for Poonam. This movie held its own in the music department. Full credit to Anu Malik for that. I think it was his debut movie.

I am not sure how the movie did – I think it was a moderate success. It certainly did not do any damage to the careers of Raj Babbar and Poonam Dhillon. Both of them went on to reasonably successful careers in the industry.

This song “aa zaraa mere humnasheen” is a typical Raj Babbar song. I say “typical” because somehow I recall him playing this sort of role in other movies too. The song was reasonably popular, although not as popular as “mohabbat rang laayegi”. In my opinion, it is just as good if not better.

The lyrics by Hasrat Jaipuri are simple but hard-hitting. They talk of the frustrations of a man rejected and dejected in love. This would have been ideal material for Sahir Ludhianvi 🙂 but Hasrat Jaipuri was also a very accomplished lyricist and has done a wonderful job here.

The lady in most of the clip is Kalpana Iyer. Better known for her dances in songs like “Rambha ho” and “Hari Om Hari”.

Song-Aa zaraa mere hamnasheen (Poonam) (1981) Singer-Rafi, MD-Hasrat Jaipuri,MD-Anu Malik

Lyrics

Aa zaraa mere humnasheen
thaam le,
mujhe thaam le
aa zaraa mere humnasheen
thaam le,
mujhe thaam le
zindagi se bhaag kar
aaya hoon main,
mujhe thaam le
aa zaraa mere humnasheen
thaam le,
mujhe thaam le
aa zaraa

apni hasti se khud
main pareshaan hoon
jiski manzil nahin
aisaa insaan hoon
apni hasti se khud
main pareshaan hoon
jiski manzil nahin
aisaa insaan hoon
main kahaan tha,
kahaan se kahaan aa gaya
kyaa se kya ho gayaa
main bhi hairaan hoon
aa zaraa mere humnasheen
thaam le,
mujhe thaam le
aa zaraa

bujh gayaa bhi to kya,
apne dil ka diyaa
ab na royenge hum,
roshni ke liye
bujh gayaa bhi to kya,
apne dil ka diyaa
ab na royenge hum,
roshni ke liye
dil ka sheeshaa jo toota,
to gham kyon karen
dard kaafi hai bas,
zindagi ke liye
aa zaraa mere humnasheen
thaam le,
mujhe thaam le
aa zaraa

raat aati rahi,
raat jaati rahi
mere gham ka na lekin saweraa huaa
raat aati rahi,
raat jaati rahi
mere gham ka na lekin saweraa huaa
apne apne naseebon ki baatein hain ye
jo mila humko
uskaa bahut shukriyaa
aa zaraa mere humnasheen
thaam le,
mujhe thaam le
zindagi se bhaag kar
aaya hoon main,
mujhe thaam le
aa zaraa

Raja–Kaka’s 1980 films had terrific music 🙂

Bandish (L-P) e.g. ‘Mere hosh le lo’, ‘Rang bhare mausam se’, etc. ; Thodisi Bewafaii (Khayyam) – the incomparable Bhupinder no. ‘Aaj bichde hain’ and Kishore’s filmfare award song ‘Hazaar rahen mudke dekhi’; Phir Wahi Raat , Red Rose and Aanchal (all RD Burman). Phir Wahi Raat had the lovely Lata no. ‘Bindiya tarse’ and some great Kishore songs; In Red Rose it’s Asha’s ‘Kiski Sadayen’ which is a personal favorite; and ‘Aanchal’ had some lovely ones like ‘Bhor bhaye pancchi’, etc.

And 1981 had the absolutely stunning score from RD in Kudrat. Also, Khayyam’s Dard was lovely.

🙂 Did not realise Thodisi Bewafai was 1980. It did have lovely songs (incl “aankhon mein humne”).
I have heard “rang bhare mausam se” (did not know the movie though). I have heard songs of Red Rose too but not songs of Phir Wohi Raat or Aanchal. Going to catch them now. 🙂

Tbh, I was shattered by Aashiq Hoon Baharon Ka. Massive flop, effectively closing Kaka’s superstardom chapter. Everybody said he was finished and that was very difficult to take.

After that I could not bring myself to watch his movies – just the thought was too painful. I did see Thodisi Bewafai, Avtaar, Red Rose and later Agar Tum Na Hote but I skipped many of his movies. Only recently I saw Kudrat and Rajput for the first time in my life! And I really liked him in both.

Need to see Dard. Had heard the promo of this too during my Delhi days – I remember liking the songs a lot.

Memories, memories, memories. 🙂

Raja–In Kaka land, we prefer to forget his stinkers like ‘Aashiq hoon baharon ka’, ‘Chalta Purza’, etc. 🙂 But ‘Aashiq…’ still had those lovely songs, ‘Tera dil kya kehta hai’, ‘Mere gore gaalon ka’.

Enjoy rediscovering some of his flops–they’re really quite good e.g., ‘Palkon ki chhaon mein’, ‘Chakravyuh’, ‘Karm’, ‘Naukri’ and the music is great as is usual in his films.
