Saawan aaye yaa naa aaye

Posted on: October 8, 2010

“Dil Diyaa Dard Liyaa” (1966) was a movie that was just before my time. I had got an opportunity to watch this movie for free a few years later but I passed over that opportunity because the movie,the actors as well as the storyline of this movie were not quite the cup of tea of kids my age. “what is this ? These movies cannot think of anything other than pyaar. There are more to life than pyaar, such as maar dhaad (fights) etc.”- The leader among us pre-teens opined and the rest of us readily agreed and walked off after some time.

Now, some four decades later, I am told that this movie has a few nice songs in it. That , plus the fact that I am no longer wary of watching “pyaar” in movies means that I can now bear to watch movies like this which I regarded as boring during my teen age and pre-teen years.

Here is this song from “Dil Diya Dar Liyaa” (1966). It is indeed a love song that I ran away from in my pre teen days. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. It is picturised on Waheeda Rehman and Dilip Kumar.Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist and Naushad is the music director. And the farmaish of this song was given by Lalitha.



Song-Saawan aaye ya na aaye jiyaa jab jhoome saawan hai (Dil Diya Dard Liyaa) (1966) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Rafi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad


saawan aaye yaa na aaye
jiyaa jab jhoome saawan hai
saawan aaye yaa na aaye
jiyaa jab jhoome saawan hai
saawan aaye

taar milen jab dil se dil ke
wohi samay man-bhaawan hai
wohi samay man-bhaawan bhaawan hai
saawan aaye

ni sa re ma re sa re ma pa
re ma pa ni pa ma pa ni sa
jabse piyaa tu nainon mein aayaa
prem ke rang mein rach gayi kaayaa
aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa
baag mein ban mein neel gangan mein
sab mein hai tere roop ki chhaayaa
tu hai mere sang to hardam
khushi ki aawan-aawan hai
khushi ki aawan-aawan aawan hai
saawan aaye yaa na aaye
jiyaa jab jhoome saawan hai
saawan aaye

ni sa ni sa re ma pa
pa ma re ma pa sa ni
aaa aaa
ankhiyaan manjeere man iktaaraa
inmein baaje naam tihaaraa
aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa
hanste-gaate jeewan beete
ant na ho ye geet hamaaraa
mausam aayaa sukh paawan kaa
dukhon ki jaawan-jaawan hai
dukhon ki jaawan-jaawan jaawan hai
saawan aaye yaa na aaye
jiyaa jab jhoome saawan hai
saawan aaye

It’s a very nice song–the picturization is all wrong though. More spring than rain and etc…


You’re lucky you avoided this film. It’s an Avoid Yaar of the first degree 😀


Is it so ? Then it means I was wise beyond my age when I was young. 😀
