Koi bataa de dil hai kahaan

Posted on: November 11, 2010


I have listened to this song many a times in my ignorant mode. By that I mean that I was totally ignorant about the details of the song, except the obvious details about the singers.

It is only a few hours ago that I came to know that this song was from “Main Chup Rahoongi” (1962). It is a duet sung by Lata and Rafi and it is picturised on Meena Kumari and Sunil Dutt.

Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist and Chitragupta composed the music.

The song is picturised as a “jhoola” song. I quite liked the location of the “jhoola” (swing) in which the two lead characters were shown swinging side by side. For much of the song, the two swings move parallel to each other. By the time the some draws to a close, the two swings begin to get entangled with each other. Other songs have choreographers, whereas this sog must have a “jhoola” expert to look after the proper fitment of the “”jhoola”. Of course, the concerned person failed to receive any appreciation from the movie makers. I could well be the first person to notice and commen of this lesser noticed aspect of this wonderful song.

The song itself is one of those underestimated and/or forgotten gems that Chitragupta kept creating those days.

Song-Koi bataa de dil hai jahaan (Main Chup Rahoongi) (1962) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

aaa aaa aaa
ho ho ho ho
koi bataa de dil hai jahaan
kyun hotaa hai dard wahaan
teer chalaa ke ye to na poochho
dil hai kahaan aur dard kahaan
koi bataa de dil hai jahaan
kyun hotaa hai dard wahaan
teer chalaa ke ye to na poochho
dil hai kahaan aur dard kahaan

jaane raat ko aankhon se
neend kahaan ud jaati hai
jaane raat ko aankhon se
neend kahaan ud jaati hai
apne ghar mein gair ko paa kar
bechaari mud jaati hai
koi bataa de dil hai jahaan
kyun hotaa hai dard wahaan
teer chalaa ke ye to na poochho
dil hai kahaan aur dard kahaan

dil par aisi kyaa guzri
ghadi ghadi ye ghabraaye
dil par aisi kyaa guzri
ghadi ghadi ye ghabraaye
main to kisi kaa ho baithaa
ye dhadak dhadak kar samjhaaye
koi bataa de dil hai jahaan
kyun hotaa hai dard wahaan
teer chalaa ke ye to na poochho
dil hai kahaan aur dard kahaan

jab ho khalish si pehloo mein
samjho pyaar ne kaam kiyaa
jab ho khalish si pehloo mein
samjho pyaar ne kaam kiyaa
aise pyaar ko kyaa kahiye
ke jisne be-aaraam kiyaa
koi bataa de dil hai jahaan
kyun hotaa hai dard wahaan
teer chalaa ke ye to na poochho
dil hai kahaan aur dard kahaan
koi bataa de dil hai jahaan
kyun hotaa hai dard wahaan
teer chalaa ke ye to na poochho
dil hai kahaan aur dard kahaan

Such cuteness and innocence–love Meena and Sunil here. Golden age like they say.
