Koi aur duniyaa mein tumsaa haseen hai

Hindi cinema has had its share of superstars and stars. Whenever we think of the star, we tend to think of the person in his or her glory.

And these are also probably the images that the superstar would like to be remembered by. Let’s just say they are happy memories all round.

This may work for the common fan but for the more fervent ones, their interest in the star is as much in the journey as in the destination.

True, some actors become stars very early on in their careers and there is therefore not much of a “when I was struggling” story to tell.

But somehow those who do have such a story always make interesting reading when their early days are brought to their fans.

For example, Shammi Kapoor’s early movies may be highly forgettable for him and his fans, but his true fans, however much they would have been thankful for Tumsa Nahin Dekha, would still like to know a bit about his journey in those years when he was a nobody.

The same applies to Amitabh Bachchan. The story of his early struggle is fairly well-documented. He had a string of failures as hero early in his career and was on the verge of leaving the industry when he bagged Zanjeer. And the rest, as they say, became history.

Those early days co-incided with the days that Rajesh Khanna was superstar. I remember those early days very well. Amitabh’s supporting roles in Parwana, Anand and Namak Haram were appreciated, and Bombay to Goa (in which he was hero) did quite well but other than that he was also swept by the Rajesh tsunami.

I remember seeing some of his movies at that time. Except for Bansi Birju which I remember being pretty bad, the rest seemed to be ok, if not great. I think it was more a casting problem. Those were the days of romantic movies and Amitabh also got cast in in typical romantic roles. Somehow the audience did not quite take readily to this. When they had the king of romance, Rajesh Khanna, and the likes of Dharam and Shashi to choose from, what chance did Amitabh, whose looks were hardly great in comparison, have in romantic roles as competition for them?

Once Amitabh became a more established actor, he played a fair number of romantic roles and did very well in them too. But by then, he was more experienced and his charisma had begun to catch on with the public.

One of his early movies was Pyar Ki Kahani (1971). I remember seeing this movie many years ago. I felt it was an ok movie. Nothing great but not too bad either. One of its songs, “ek khabar aayi”, was quite popular too in its time although its picturisation, with Amitabh jumping around, may just embarrass him a bit if he sees it now. 😀

And then there was this song “koi aur duniya mein”.

I have always liked this song. It was mildly popular, certainly not a chartbuster of any sort. But it has a soft, pleasant ring to it and is quite sweet. It is picturised on Amitabh, with scenes of Tanuja, Anil Dhawan and Farida Jalal also appearing from time to time.

I sense, on seeing this video, that Amitabh does not feel too comfortable having this song picturised on him. In place, his steps look somewhat theatrical. But that probably even adds a bit of charm to the song.

More importantly, this song gives us an opportunity to see Amitabh in his very early days, way before he became the superstar we were to know him as later. From the looks of it, the signs were already there…

Song-Koi aur duniya mein tum sa haseen hai (Pyaar Ki Kahaani) (1971) Singer-Rafi,Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

Koi aur duniya mein tum sa haseen hai
Nahin hai nahin hai nahin hai nahin
Koi aur duniya mein tum sa haseen hai
Nahin hai nahin hai nahin hai nahin
Adaa ye nazar ye jahaan mein kahin hai
Nahin hai nahin hai nahin hai nahin

Burayee teri gar zamaanaa karey
Bayaan koi jhootha fasaana karey
Burayee teri gar zamaanaa karey
Bayaan koi jhootha fasaana karey
Uthaaye ye kasmen ye hazaaron magar
Yakeen kaise tera deewana karey
Bhala is zamaaney ka koi yakeen hai
Nahin hai nahin hai nahin hai nahin
Koi aur duniya mein tum sa haseen hai
Nahin hai nahin hai nahin hai nahin

Judaa hai sabhi se kahaani teri
Zaraa paas aa meherbaani teri
Judaa hai sabhi se kahaani teri
Zaraa paas aa meherbaani teri
Tujhe dekhtaa hai ghataaon se chaand
Ki hai chaandni bhi deewaanee teri
Kisi aur ka naam kya mahjabeen hai
Nahin hai nahin hai nahin hai nahin
Koi aur duniya mein tum sa haseen hai
Nahin hai nahin hai nahin hai nahin
Adaa ye nazar ye jahaan mein kahin hai
Nahin hai nahin hai nahin hai nahin

I have heard of this movie, but I have never heard this song before ! And it is interesting to note that this song is sung by Rafi under the music direction of R D Burman when it was widely believed that R D Burman was using Kishore Kumar in all his songs during that period of time.

This song reminds me a lot of another R.D. Burman-Mohd. Rafi collaboration from almost a decade later, “Maine Poocha Chand Se”, the tune and even the lyrics are somewhat similar.

I agree that AB seems somewhat awkward in this picturization and probably in others so early in his career, but once his career picked up some steam and we got to see the full force of his charisma, there was no looking back.
