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

Meri jaan meri jaan pyaar kisi se ho hi gayaa hai

Posted on: November 2, 2010


1950s was the decade when Hindi movie music found its feet and the rules of Hindi movie songs were established.

1950s was before my time and during my young age, I regarded the songs of 1950s as “puraani filmon ke geet” and therefore boring. But now I feel that this decade offers a treasure of great songs. I have discussed a large number of songs from this decade and still lots of songs from this decade remain undiscussed.

Here is a song from this decade. It is sung by Lata nd it is picturised on Meena Kumari. No, it is not a weepy Meena Kumari, but a cheerful one. It is from “Yahudi” (1958) when Meena Kumari had yet to discover weepy roles.

This song is a cheerful song where Meena Kumari is seen in a chirpy mood, as befits someone in love.

This song is written by Shailendra and the music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

I heard this song for the first time only just now, and that makes this song a forgotten gem by my definition even though others may already be aware of this song.

Lyrics

meri jaan meri jaan
pyaar kisi se ho hi gayaa hai,
ham kyaa karen
meri jaan meri jaan
pyaar kisi se ho hi gayaa hai,
ham kyaa karen
ham kyaa karen,
aur koi kyaa kare,
dil jo diyaa hai
ham kyaa karen
meri jaan meri jaan

bholi thi main,
haay kyaa thi khabar
aaa aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
lootegi yoon mujhe unki nazar
aaa aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
bholi thi main,
haay kyaa thi khabar
lootegi yoon mujhe unki nazar
na hote muqaabil
na dil haarte ham
ye apni khataa hai,
gilaa kyaa karen
meri jaan meri jaan
pyaar kisi se ho hi gayaa hai,
ham kyaa karen
wayi wayi wayi wayi
meri jaan meri jaan
pyaar kisi se ho hi gayaa hai,
ham kyaa karen
ham kyaa karen
aur koi kyaa kare
dil jo diyaa hai
ham kyaa karen
meri jaan meri jaan

jinki nigaahon ne ghaayal kiyaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
lenge unhin se dil ki dawaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
jinki nigaahon ne ghaayal kiyaa
lenge unhin se dil ki dawaa
na ham muskuraate
na wo paas aate
usiki mili hai sazaa, kyaa karen
meri jaan meri jaan
pyaar kisi se ho hi gayaa hai,
ham kyaa karen
wayi wayi wayi wayi
meri jaan meri jaan
pyaar kisi se ho hi gayaa hai,
ham kyaa karen
ham kyaa kare
aur koi kyaa kare
dil jo diyaa hai
ham kyaa karen
meri jaan meri jaan
pyaar kisi se ho hi gayaa hai,
ham kyaa karen
meri jaan meri jaan

Very lovely Atul. You’re right, the rules were established in the 50s. I think they also came with people like Lata entering the industry (the success of Mahal). There are new rules now yet again and actors are doing their own singing. I like the old way — we need good music and good singers.
