Ye jawaani hai deewaani

Posted on: September 10, 2010


In the golden era of Hindi movie music, songs played a very important role in the success of the movies. In fact, many of the actors, especially male actors owe their success to the singing of the leading male singer of the time.

For example, the wonderful singing of Rafi was behind the success and stardom of many leading male actors of the day, especially in 1960s. If you leave Rafi’s songs on the lead actors, there is not much left in the movies to keep the audience interested.

When 1960s gave way to 1970s, Kishore Kumar took over as the leading male playback singer of the decade. And just like what was the case with Rafi’s songs in the earlier decades, Kishore Kumar’s wonderful singing helped launch many an acting career. Rajesh Khanna and subsequently Amitabh Bachchan, the two superstars of the decade had Kishore Kumar singing for them and Kishore Kumar’s contribution in the success of these actors cannot be underestimated.

Kishore Kumar would give his best to all his songs, and not just to the songs that he sang for the superstars.

There were many actors whose career was made by Kishore Kumar being their playback voice, but there was one actor who was beyond all help.

It was Randhir Kapoor. Randhir Kapoor was a contemporary of Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan, and the quantity and quality of songs that Kishore Kumar sang for Randhir Kapoor was second to none. In fact, I always felt that Kishore Kumar gave his best for Randhir Kapoor. But alas ! Randhir Kapoor, despite all help, failed to have a meaningful acting career as a leading man in Bollywood.

Here is a song sung by Kishore Kumar for Randhir Kapoor. It is from “Jawaani Deewaani” (1972). What a fabulous song it is ! It was a hugely popular song of those days.

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist and R D Burman is the music director. This song is picturised on Randhir Kapoor and Jaya Bhaduri as a car song. Of course, it is a romantic cum teasing song as well.

What a fantastic song ! If an actor cannot capitalise on songs like this then he does not have it in him to succeed, one feels.

Lyrics

he
ye jawaani,
tararuru
hai deewaani
tarararuru
hai rarara rarararara
hai zuzuzuzu zuzuzuzu

ye jawaani,

haa
meri raani, ruk jaao raani
dekh zaraa peechhe mudke
chali kahaan aise ud ke
he he
gili gili akkhaa,
gili gili akkhaa
gili gili akkhaa,
bili bili bili bili bili
gili gili akkhaa,
gili gili akkhaa
gili gili akkhaa,
bili bili bili bili bili
ye jawaani,
hai deewaani
haa meri raani, ruk jaa o raani
dekh zaraa peechhe mudke
chali kahaan aise ud ke

baaten mulaaqaaten karne ki shaam hai
aise mein hai roothnaa deewanon kaa kaam hai
dekho baba taubaa
baaten mulaaqaaten karne ki shaam hai
aise mein hai roothnaa deewanon kaa kaam hai
he ye jawaani,
hai deewaani
hat meri raani, ruk jaao raani
dekh zaraa peechhe mudke
chali kahaan aise ud ke

roothi, chal jhoothi bas tooti dosti
shiqwaa hai honthon pe, aankhon mein pyaar bhi
dekho tauba tauba
roothi, chal jhoothi bas tooti dosti
shiqwaa hai honthon pe, aankhon mein pyaar bhi
he, ye jawaani hai deewaani
hat meri raani, ruk jaao raani
dekh zaraa peechhe mudke
chali kahaan aise ud ke

milke dil dil se, khil jaataa banke phool
par tujhko na bhooli chhoti si meri bhool
dekho tauba tauba
milke dil dil see, khil jaataa banke phool
par tujhko na bhooli chhoti si meri bhool
he ye jawaani hai deewaani
hat meri raani, ruk jaao raani
dekh zaraa peechhe mudke
chali kahaan aise ud ke
he he
gili gili akkhaa,
gili gili akkhaa
gili gili akkhaa
bili bili bili bili bili
gili gili akkhaa,
gili gili akkhaa
gili gili akkhaa,
bili bili bili

Nice song.

Atul for your information the song is picturised in Lalbagh Bangalore very near to place where I stay.

Indeed, now that you mention it Shashi, it is Lalbagh gardens!
I have seen this video many times but never noticed this.
Maybe I would recognise it if I saw a million people in the background. LOL!
Actually it is sad how overcrowded Bangalore has become. Seeing this video makes me realise that even more.

But what a timepass song this is! As Mumbaikars would say “jhakkaas” gaana hi. 🙂

Kishore has such a powerful resonant voice–it’s been a while since i listened to a Kishore number. The other song in the movie–Jaane-ja is just so fantastic (Rajesh Khanna’s favorite and mine too) and so is the picturization–lost in the trees for once appropriate.

And yes, Atul Randhir did not capitalize on it. It is a RK song through and through except this fatty showed up on the day of the shooting.

What a lovely song! Indeed, all songs of the movie are great!
RK was lucky to get so many wonderful Kishore songs. There is one more, rather rare one, “Koi shama sheeshey ki laya”. Is it here on the blog?

I have come to know of this song only from your comment. So naturally this song is not yet posted.
