Kahaan ho kahaan mere jeewan sahaare

Posted on: November 18, 2010


In my bid to discuss all the Sajjad Hussain songs, I have made considerable progress. I have so far discussed as many as 40 songs, which is a big figure, considering that Sajjad Hussain composed only about 100 songs in Hindi movies.

By now, I seem to have hit against a wall, and discovering more such songs is proving out to be quite a challenge. It is unlikely that I will be able to discuss all of the remaining Sajjad Hussain compositions in Hindi movies, since many of them, especially his earlier songs, seem to have disappeared with the passage of time. So the best I can do is the search for the songs that are still are available somewhere. I also need the help of my readers who are in a position to help in this matter.

Here is a song from “Sangdil” (1951). This song, the 41st Sajjad Hussain song to be posted in this blog and the sixth from this movie, is sung by Talat Mehmood. It is picturised on Dilip Kumar as a piano song.

Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist of this song.


Song-Kahaan ho kahaan mere jeewan sahaare (Sangdil) (1952) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Sajjad Hussain

Lyrics

kahaan ho kahaan
mere jeewan sahaare
tumhen dil pukaare,
tumhen dil pukaare
bahaate hain aansoo
judaayi mein teri
ye armaan bechaare,
ye armaan bechaare
kahaan ho kahaan
mere jeewan sahaare
tumhen dil pukaare,
tumhen dil pukaare

nazar se giraa ke chale jaane waale
nazar se giraa ke chale jaane waale
tadpaane waale
ye dil dhoondhtaa hai
tumhaare ishaare
tumhaare ishaare,
tumhaare ishaare
ye dil dhoondhtaa hai
tumhaare ishaare
tumhaare ishaare,
tumhaare ishaare

tadapte hain aankhon mein armaan dekho
tadapte hain aankhon mein armaan dekho
ye toofaan dekho
chale aao rotaa hai dil gham ke maare
ye dil gham ke maare,
ye dil gham ke maare
chale aao rotaa hai dil gham ke maare
ye dil gham ke maare,
ye dil gham ke maare
kahaan ho kahaan
mere jeewan sahaare
tumhen dil pukaare,
tumhen dil pukaare
kahaan ho kahaan

Sajjad Hussain asked his producer R.C.Talwar for five pianos to record this song. He was taken aback and asked why five pianos?That is the requirement of my composition, replied Sajjad.Consequently five piano were arranged but it was difficult to find five accomplished pianists.Ultimately four male and one lady pianist were arranged. The song turned out to be one of the most challenging compositions of Sangdil as described by Prof.Dr Ashraf Aziz in his Essay ‘Lyrical Greifwork’ about the genius of Sajjad.Hussain.Here is how he has praised this song;-
‘Talat’s ever blue voice shapes this melody in subterranean space.We view the landscape of loss and hurt as if submerged in stormy seas,Around the lyrics Sajjad creates a furious orchestral storm which,at strategic intervals,raises the forlorn saxophone’s wail.From start to end the lyrics are pelted by the SHOWERS OF PIANO NOTES-as if some heinous celestial storm keeps bursting over the melody..This is hardly a shower of rain….it seems like the stars are exploding over the song.It is an original……a tour de force.
