Log to baat kaa afsaanaa banaa dete hain

Posted on: September 30, 2010


Most Hindi movie songs last for three to four minutes, but the lonngest songs often last two and even three times the durations of the normal length songs. These long songs are mostly qawwaalis. The qawwalis may last considerably, but they hold the listeners spell bound with their lyrics.

In this blog, I have posted some fantastic qawwalis, some of them over 10 minutes long. And the lyrics of these qawwaalis are some of the best lyrics ever written in an Hindi movie song.

Here is a qawwaali from a movie called “Shaadi” (1962). This qawwali brings together Rafi and Manna Dey, alongwith chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist and Chitragupta is the music director.

Like most other qawaalis, this qawwali holds the listeners spellbound throughout its duration (over seven minutes long). The lyrics by Rajinder Krishan are fabulous and the rendering by Rafi and Manna Dey out of this world. Chitragupta, an unassuming and low profile music director shows his mastery over this genre of music in this song.

On the screen, Manoj Kumar lip syncs in Rafi’s voice. Can someone tell me who is the other actor who lip syncs in Manna Dey’s voice ?

Here is this wondeful qawwaali from “Shaadi”(1962). Enjoy !

Song-Log to baat ka afsaanaa banaa dete hain (Shaadi) (1962) Singers-Rafi, Manna Dey, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa
jisko jalne ki na parwaah ho
aa haa haa
wo parwaana hai
shamaa ke husn ka
sunte hain ki deewaanaa hai
waaqayaa kyaa hai
waaqayaa kyaa hai
koi isse khabardaar nahin
ek jhoothaa sa ye afsaanaa hi afsaanaa hai
log to baat ka
log to baat ka afsaanaa banaa dete hain
log to baat ka afsaanaa banaa dete hain
achche achchon ko
haan
achche achchon ko
ae ji haan
achche achchon ko deewaana banaa dete hain
deewaana banaa dete hain
log to baat ka afsaanaa banaa dete hain
achche achchon ko ye deewaana banaa dete hain

aaa aaa aaa
shama se poochha ye ik roz
o noor e mehfil
kyaa Khuda ne tujhe bakshaa nahin ulfat bhara dil
jo gale tujhse mile usko jalaa deti hai
jo gale tujhse mile usko jalaa deti hai
chaahne waale ki hasti hi mitaa deti hai
chaahne waale ki hasti hi mitaa deti hai
shama ne aag rachi
haan haay
shama ne aag rachi sar pe qasam khaane ko
jo Khuda maine jalaayaa nahin parwaane ko
log to baat ka afsaanaa banaa dete hain
achche achchon ko ye deewaana banaa dete hain
log to baat ka
ho ho ho
log to baat ka
ae ji haan
log to
haan ji baat ka
log to baat ka
baat ka
baat ka
log to baat ka afsaanaa banaa dete hain
afsaanaa banaa dete hain
log to baat ka afsaanaa banaa dete hain
achche achchon ko ye deewaana banaa dete hain

aaa aaa aaa
kahaa ye shamaa ne
parwaana mujhpe martaa hai
haay haay
agarche meri muhabbat ka dam ye bhartaa hai
kisi haseen ki mehfil ho ya ho veeraanaa
kisi haseen ki mehfil ho ya ho veeraanaa
jahaan jahaan main jaloon aa hi jaaye deewaanaa
jahaan jahaan main jaloon aa hi jaaye deewaanaa
hazaar baar ye
haan ho
hazaar baar ye samjhaa chuki ki aag hoon main
na khel mujhse
muhabbat ke haq mein naag hoon main
parwaane ka bas ek raag
tera husn aag mera ishq aag
parwaane ka bas ek raag
tera husn aag mera ishq aag
parwaane ka
parwaane ka
aeji haan haan
bas ek raag
bas ek raag
tera husn aag mera ishq aag
tera husn aag mera ishq aag
parwaane ka bas ek raag
tera husn aag mera ishq aag
tera husn aag mera ishq aag

poochhaa parwaane se
naadaan tu kyun jaltaa hai
maut jis raah mein hai
uspe tu kyun chalta hai
shamaa ne kyaa tujhe samjhaaya nahin
bola samjhaayaa to hai
shola sa tujhko nazar aaya nahin
bola ji aaya to hai
zindagi se tujhe nafrat kyun hai
bola nafrat kaisi
shama se phir tujhe ulfat kyun hai
bola ulfat kaisi
aaa aaa aaa
shama se mujhko muhabbat ho
ye naamumkin hai
aisi kambakhth ki chaahat ho
ye naamumkin hai
noor ik thaa (?) ik aankh nahin bhaataa hai
iske jalne se kaleja mera jal jaataa hai
meri mehboob ko ye mujhse judaa karti hai
meri dushman hai
meri dushman hai
sare shaam jalaa karti hai
main to aashiq hoon
main to aashiq hoon raat ki siyaahi kaa
main to aashiq hoon raat ki siyaahi kaa
shamaa paighaam meri tabaahi kaa
shamaa paighaam meri tabaahi kaa
main to aashiq hoon raat ki siyaahi kaa
main to aashiq hoon
baat kah di hai sach sach yaqeen keejiye
jo na aaye yaqeen ye saboot leejiye
shamaa din ko jale
shamaa din ko jale to main aataa nahin
iske jalne se main tilmilaataa nahin
main to aashiq hoon
main to aashiq hoon
main to aashiq hoon
aashiq hoon
aashiq hoon
aashiq hoon
aashiq hoon raat ki siyaahi kaa
main to aashiq hoon raat ki siyaahi kaa
main to aashiq hoon
log to baat ka afsaanaa banaa dete hain
achche achchon ko ye deewaana banaa dete hain

One long song not a qawwali is Tu chhupi hai kahan from navrang. I love the song, but used to hate it when it was featured in Chitrahaar since it would take up the time for 2-3 songs. It appeared on Chitrahaar with regularity to my frustration.

Yes, you have a point. 😀 Chitrahaar should only play small length songs.
