Meri veena tum bin roye

Posted on: September 7, 2010


“Dekh Kabira Roya” (1957) was a movie made with lesser actors, and I have no idea how the movie fared at the box office, but today this movie is regarded as a musical blockbuster.

I have posted two timeless classics from this movie, viz. Hamse aayaa na gayaa tumse bulaayaa na gayaa and Kaun aaya mere man ke dwaare paayal ki jhankaar liye. Here is another timeless classic from this movie.

This song, “meri veena tum bin roye” is a song that I have read a lot, but had never heard it. It is just a few hours ago I heard this song for the first time. I was under the impression that it must be a normal length song sung by Lata and picturised on one lead actress, but I now realise that the picturised song is three times longer (about nine minutes) and the song is likewise picturised not one one actress, but on as many as three of them ! And the fact that the song has not just Lata but also Asha Bhonsle as the playback singer was not known to me.

I guess that this song could well have been released as two different songs on records, but as far as the movie is concerned , it is one full song.

Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist and Madan Mohan is the music director. This could be a rare occasion for Madan Mohan where he has got the two Mangeshkar sisters to sing together in one song.

The song is picturised on Ameeta, Anita Guha and Shubha Khote.


song-Meri veena tum bin roye (Dekh Kabira Roya) (1957) Singer-Lata, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan,MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa

meri veenaa tum bin roye
meri veenaa tum bin roye
sajnaa sajnaa sajnaa
meri veenaa tum bin roye

saanwariyaa tum jahaan base ho
main wo gaanv na jaanoon
beetegi kab birhaa ki ye
paapan shaam na jaanoon
haaye madhur milan kab hoye
sajnaa sajnaa sajnaa,
meri veenaa tum bin roye

tujh bin mere geet adhoore
honthon pe sharmaayen
saaz uthaaun taar naa baajen
tadap tadap rah jaayen
meri peer naa jaane koye
sajnaa sajnaa sajnaa,
meri veenaa tum bin roye
haay roye
haay roye

ashqon se teri hamne
tasweer banaayi hai
ashqon se teri hamne
tasweer banaayi hai
ro ro ke muhabbat se
taqdeer banaayi hai
ashqon se teri hamne

aankhon se liya paani
palkon se sanwaaraa hai
aur khoone jigar dekar
har naksh ubhaaraa hai
milne ki sanam tujhse
tadbeer banaayi hai
milne ki sanam tujhse
tadbeer banaayi hai
ro ro ke muhabbat se
taqdeer banaayi hai
ashqon se teri hamne

tadpaayegi jab dil ko
saawan ki haseen raaten
tanhaayi mein chal dengen
tasweer ke do baaten
deewaane ne khud apni
zanjeer banaayi hai
deewaane ne khud apni
zanjeer banaayi hai
ro ro ke muhabbat ki
taqdeer banaayi hai
ashqon se teri hamne
tasweer banaayi hai
ashqon se teri hamne

sajna sajna sajnaa sajnaa
meri veena tum bin roye
sajna sajna sajna
meri veena tum bin roye
haay roye haay roye

na gilaa hoga
na shiqwa na shikaayat hogi
araz hai chhoti si
sunlo to inaayat hogi

ham pyaar karen ya thukraayen
o hain tere deewaanon mein
chaahe tu hamen apna na banaa
lekin na samajh begaanon mein
marne se hamen inkaar nahin
jeete hain magar ik hasrat mein
marne se hamen inkaar nahin
jeete hain magar ik hasrat mein
bhoole se hamaaraa naam kabhi
aa jaaye tere afsaanon mein
ham pyaar karen ya thukraayen
ham to hain tere deewaanon mein

mitate hain magar haule haule
jalte hai magar ik baar nahin
mitate hain magar haule haule
jalte hai magar ik baar nahin
ham shama ka seenaa rakhte hain
rahte hain magar parwaanon mein
ham shama ka seenaa rakhte hain
rahte hain magar parwaanon mein
ham pyaar karen ya thukraayen
ham to hai tere deewaanon mein

sajnaa sajnaa
meri veena tum bin roye
sajnaa sajnaa sajnaa
meri veena tum bin roye
haay roye
haay roye
haay roye

The songs and the name of the movie give an impression that it is a sad movie, but is actually a fairly decent comedy. Try to watch if you have not had a chance yet.

Love love love all the songs of this film, just because they are all classical. The music is out of the world and so are the lyrics. The song reminds me “mohe bhool gaye saanwariya”. I didn’t know the original song was extended with two singers singing it.

The youtube clip is so clear and that makes it a nice watch.

Atul, I believe they are three different individual songs: Meri Veena Tum Bin Roye, Tu Pyar Kare Ya Thukraye, and Ashkon Se Teri Hamne; each is a beautiful song. When I watched the movie, I did not get the impression that they were one song. The common theme of the three songs is that each woman thinks (mistakenly) that her love-interest has abandoned her.

There are 7 more songs in Dekh Kabira Roya; you have already mentioned the two classics:
1. Kaun Aaya Mere Man Ke Dware by Manna Dey; Raga: Rageshri
2. Hum Se Aaya Na Gaya by Talat Mehmood; Raga: Bageshri
Another lovely Lata Mangeshkar solo is
3. Lagan Tose Lagi Balma – Raga: Tilang (or Tilak Kamod)
Then there are these four:
4. Hum Panchhi Mastane by Lata Mangeshkar , Geeta Dutt , and Seeta Agarwal
5. Hum Bulate Hi Rahe by Asha Bhonsle and Mohammed Rafi
6. Bairan Hogayi Rain by Manna Dey; Raga: Jaijaivanti
7. Tum Meri Rakho Laj Hari by Sudha Malhotra; Raga: Jogia

By the way, I had wondered what the title of the movie meant. It comes from a “doha” (a two-line poem or couplet) by the great poet Kabir Das:
Rangi Ko Narangi Kahe, Bane Doodh Ko Khoya
Chalti Ko Gadi Kahe. Dekh Kabira Roya

Its translation is as follows:
Narangi (the fruit orange) is colorful, but the meaning of the word “narangi” is without color; Khoya (the tasty treat) is created from milk, but the meaning of the word “khoya” is lost;

The moving vehicle is called Gadi, but the meaning of the word “gadi” is buried (not moving); Looking (at these illogical ways of the world) makes the poet Kabir sob (in frustration).
