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

Ye jawaani ye haseen raat Khudaa khair kare

Posted on: September 3, 2010


The songs that I post in this blog can be roughly divided into two categories. One category is those songs that were popular in their days and are often well known among the fans of Hindi movie music.

The other category is that of lesser known songs. There are many songs which lie forgotten for one reason or the other. When one gets to listen to these songs, one wonders how and why these songs are not better known. Instead of being better known, these songs often end up becoming too rare and difficult to find.

If the movie is a B or C grade movie, then the probabilities of its songs being rare increases considerably. Has anyone heard of the C grade movie called “Khoobsurat Dhokha”(1959) ? I have not. This movie had lead actors like Ravindra Kapoor, Shashikala, Randhir, Jayant, B M Vyas, Sundar etc. This is hardly a star cast that will interest an average movie buff.

But I keep harping on my oft repeated observation that the music of such obscure C grade movie was perfectly A grade stuff. It was just that the music of such movies never made it to the air waves for the listener to listen to them and like them.

Here is a wonderful song from “Khoobsurat Dhokha” (1959). It is sung by Mukesh. Lyricist is someone called Rahil Gorakhpuri and music is composed by the amazingly talented and sadly underutilised music director S Mohinder.

And I just noticed that this song is the 250th song of Mukesh to figure in this blog. Considering that Mukesh sang less than one thousand songs in Hindi movies, it means that this blog now contains more than 25% of all Mukesh songs from Hindi movies in this blog. I think we can take some pride in this fact. And since I post only thise songs that I think are nice to listen to, it also validates the oft repeated observation about Mukesh that a large majority of Mukesh songs went on to become popular. Indeed, I can vouch for that observation.


Song-Ye jawaani ye haseen raat Khudaa khair kare (Khoobsurat Dhokha) (1959) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Rahil Gorakhpuri, MD-S Mohinder

Lyrics

ye jawaani ye haseen raat
Khuda khair kare
aapse meri mulaaqaat
Khuda khair kare
ye jawaani ye haseen raat
Khuda khair kare
aapse meri mulaaqaat
Khuda khair kare
ye jawaani
aa haa haa

aaj har cheez pe
chhaayi huyi madhoshi hai
husn hai ishq hai
veeraana hai khaamoshi hai
aji khaamoshi hai
dil machalte huye jazbaat
Khuda khair kare
aapse meri mulaaqaat
Khuda khair kare
ye jawaani
hmm hmm hmm

gudgudaati hai jawaani
mere armaanon ko
gudgudaati hai jawaani
mere armaanon ko
kaun roke dil mein
uthte huye toofaanon ko
aji toofaanon ko
dil pe rakhne lage hum haath
Khuda khair kare
aapse meri mulaaqaat Khuda khair kare
ye jawaani
aa haa haa

jaane kyaa gham ne
udhar teekhi nazar se poochaa
jaane kyaa gham ne idhar
apne jigar se poochha
ho jigar se poochhaa
ye sawaalon se sawaalaat
Khuda khair kare
aapse meri mulaaqaat
Khuda khair kare
ye jawaani ye haseen raat
Khudaa khair kare
aapse meri mulaaqaat
Khuda khair kare
ye jawaani
