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

Rimjhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat

Posted on: October 28, 2010


When I was a kid, I thought that most Hindi movie songs were love songs, and there were few songs of other categories. But now I know better. One can see that the Hindi movie songs fall into several categories. One song itself can belong to several categories.

Take this song from “Kaalaa Baazaar” (1960) for instance. It is a romantic song. At the same time, it is a rain song as well. And, it is a song whose picturisation makes it an incredibly sensuous song as well.

All these days, I wasw under the impression that I had already posted this song. One tends to get such impressions when one knows that as many as six songs have been posted from the movie in question. I have posted six songs from this movie and this song is not yet posted ! This tells us something about the sheer quality of the songs of this movie.

Here is this song “rimjhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat”. What happens If two people, with love blossoming between them, reunite on a rainy day and it begins to rain, and all the taxis and other modes of public transports are already taken ! This picturisation happens, and what an eye candy this picturisation is Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman, who ! The audio of the song sung by Rafi and Geeta Dutt has in anycase gone on to become an iconic song par excellence.

Shailendra is the lyricist and S D Burman composed the music. All these geniuses were at the peak of their creativity at that time and this song is a wonderful example of the result of their creativity.

The picturised version of the song is less than two minutes long. Therefore in addition to the video link, I have provided the audio link as well which contains the complete song.

Lyrics

rim jhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat
yaad aaye kisi se wo pehli mulaaqaat
rim jhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat
yaad aaye kisi se wo pehli mulaaqaat
rim jhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat

bheege tan man pade ras ki phuhaar
pyaar kaa sandesaa laayi barkhaa bahaar
bheege tan man pade ras ki phuhaar
pyaar kaa sandesaa laayi barkhaa bahaar
main naa boloon
main naa boloon aankhen karen ankhiyon se baat
rim jhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat

sunke matwaale kaale baadlon kaa shor
rum jhum ghoom ghoom naache man kaa mor
sunke matwaale kaale baadlon kaa shor
rum jhum ghoom ghoom naache man kaa mor
sapnon kaa saathi chal rahaa hai mere saath
rim jhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat
yaad aaye kisi se wo pehli mulaqaat
rim jhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat

jab milte ho tum to chhooten hain dil ke taar
milne ko tum se main kyun thaa beqaraar
jab milte ho tum to chhooten hain dil ke taar
milne ko tum se main kyun thaa beqaraar
rah jaati hai
rah jaati hai kyun honthon tak aake dil ki baat
rim jhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat
yaad aaye kisi se wo pehli mulaqaat
rim jhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat

I just love this song, in fact, all the songs you have posted today rank among my top favorites. This song gives the listener a feel of the joy experienced by the lead pair, so I guess full credit goes to the singers and the music director, and of course the lyricist. Mostly, this song reminds me of the monsoon in Bombay, which I experienced during the three months that my father was posted there!

Thanks, Atul!

This song indeed is a joyous song in addition to being a rain song and a romantic song.
