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

Jaane bhi de chhod ye bahaanaa

Posted on: September 24, 2010


We all know that when Kishore Kumar acted in movies, he sang his own songs. Sometimes, Kishore Kumar would be dressed in drags, and even there he would provide the female playback himself ( viz. Aake seedhi lagi(Half Ticket)(1962).

On the other hand, there were exceptions, where the music director(s) made him to lip sync in other singers voice. I can count the names of Rafi and Manna Dey as the singers who have sung for Kishore Kumar in Hindi movies.

Can one think of any other singers who have given playback for Kishore Kumar ? Now I can, and it is a rather unusual name to sing for Kishore Kumar.

Here is this song from the laugh riot “Baap Re Baap”(1955) where Kishore Kumar is dressed like a woman and sings this song in a bid to amuse Smriti Biswas .
I hope it is Smriti Biswas and not Chand Usmani (you know how I am when it comes to identifying female actors of 1950s), who seems like she is married to Kishore Kumar and is unhappy about something. Kishore Kumar’s antics, singing and dancing like a female, makes her smile (which she tries very hard to suppress) but finally it finally becomes too much for her to maintain a straight face and she finally bursts out laughing.

This song is sung by, of all singers, Asha Bhonsle !

So here is a good trivia question to ask in a quiz programme, viz. Which of these singers has sung a song for Kishore Kumar in a Hindi movie (a) Lata (b) Asha Bhonsle (c) Shamshad Begam (d) Suman Kalyanpur

In case you hear this question in a quiz programme, you know from where they have copied this question. 😀

This song, which is picturised on Kishore Kumar and Smriti Biswas (assuming that it is Smriti Biswas) is written by Jaan Nissar Akhtar. O P Nayyar is the music director.
PS-The lady is Chaand Usmani, as informed by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh.


Song-Jaane bhi de chhod ye bahaanaa (Baap Re Baap) (1955) Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics- Jaan Nissar Akhtar, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

jaane bhi de chhod ye bahaanaa
tere liye jeena hai deewaana
rut hai jawaan pyaar kar
yahi to hai pyaar ka zamaanaa
jaane bhi de chhod ye bahaanaa
tere liye jeena hai deewaana
rut hai jawaan pyaar kar
yahi to hai pyaar ka zamaanaa

aankhon ka raat haseen hai
dekh mujhe hosh nahin hai
aankhon ka raat haseen hai
dekh mujhe hosh nahin hai
dil na dukhaa jiyaa na jalaa
yoon na sataa paas to aa
jaane bhi de chhod ye bahaanaa
tere liye jeena hai deewaana
rut hai jawaan pyaar kar
yahi to hai pyaar ka zamaanaa

dekh meri naazuk haal
teri adaa maar na daale
dekh meri naazuk haal
teri adaa maar na daale
dil na dukhaa
jiyaa na jalaa
yoon na sataa
paas to aa
jaane bhi de chhod ye bahaanaa
tere liye jeena hai deewaana
rut hai jawaan pyaar kar
yahi to hai pyaar ka zamaanaa

aaj tera saath milaa hai
saaraa jahaan jhoom uthaa hai
aaj tera saath milaa hai
saaraa jahaan jhoom uthaa hai
labon pe hansi
chaayi hai khushi
main hoon wahi tu hai wahi
jaane bhi de chhod ye bahaanaa
tere liye jeena hai deewaana
rut hai jawaan pyaar kar
yahi to hai pyaar ka zamaanaa
jaane bhi de chhod ye bahaanaa
tere liye jeena hai deewaana
rut hai jawaan pyaar kar
yahi to hai pyaar ka zamaanaa
