Ab kaun hai meraa

Posted on: September 28, 2010


Sajjad Hussain is regarded as one of the most talented music directors of Hindi movie industry. But he failed to have a long career in Hindi movies, because he tended to rub people the wrong way with his behaviour. As a result, he got very few assignments in his career lasting nearly two decades in which he got to compose only about 100 songs.

In this blog, I have so far posted 14 songs composed by Sajjad Hussain. I need to search for Sajjad Hussain songs and post them all here.

“Dost” (1944) was the debut movie of Sajjad Hussain as a music director. Here is a song from this movie. This song is sung by Noorjahaan. Only the audio of this song is available but it is clear that the song was picturised on Noorjahaan herself.
PS-Our knowledeable reader, Khwaja Sultan Ahmad informs that this song was picturised on Maya Bannerji. So this was a case of Noorjahaan giving playback for another actress.

Shams Lucknowi is the lyricist.


Song-Ab kaun hai meraa (Dost) (1944) Singer-Noorjahaan, Lyrics-Shams Lucknowi, MD-Sajjad Hussain

Lyrics

ab kaun hai meraa
ab kaun hai meraa
ab kaun hai meraa
dukh dard ne gheraa,
mujhe dukh dard ne gheraa
ab kaun hai meraa
maalik mere aaa
bahr-e-madad naam hai teraa
ab kaun hai meraa

ghar ghar mein ujaalaa hai
khushi aur hansi hai
yaa dam pe bani hai
har simt nazar
aa rahaa hai mujh ko andheraa
ab kaun hai meraa

wo zindaa rahen
unki balaa leke uthoon main
qadmon pe maroon main,
qadmon pe maroon main
wo zindaa rahen
unki balaa leke uthoon main
qadmon pe maroon main,
qadmon pe maroon main
hasrat hai yahi
aur yahi armaan hai meraa
ab kaun hai meraa

shikwaa hai na unse
na muqaddar kaa gilaa hai
sab meri khataa hai
shikwaa hai na unse
na muqaddar kaa gilaa hai
sab meri khataa hai
is mehfil-e-duniyaa se
uthaa de meraa deraa
ab kaun hai meraa
ab kaun hai meraa
ab kaun hai meraa

This song was picturised on Maya Bannerji and was thus the first play-back song of Nur Jehan.
