Ek shama do parwaane mile…yahi zindagi ki reet

Posted on: November 20, 2010


“Shabistaan” (1951) was an Arabian Nights kind of fantasy movie. Such kind of movie were then regarded as B grade movie. “Stunt” movie was another name for such movies because these movies had lots of fights in them. In fact, Shyam, the hero of this movie, died on the stage of this movie while performing a stunt. He was riding a horse when he fell from the horse and died. To this date, this is regarded as one of the major disasters on the sets of Hindi movies.

This movie, like most movies of those days, had outstanding songs in it. And that is to be expected, if the music director of this movie was C Ramchandra, and he was assisted by Madan Mohan.

I have already discussed a song from this movie, viz Ham hain tere deewaane gar tu bura na maane.

Here is another song from this movie.This song is sung by Shamshad Begam. It is picturised on Cuckoo I hope I have identified the lead dancer correctly). The picturisation also shows Naseem, Shyam and Murad watching the dance performance.

This song is a superb and so is the dance performance. The song is written by Qamar Jalalabadi.

I have got most of the lyrics right, but there are still gaps/errors. I request my readers with keener ears to point out the words/errors, so that I may be able to make the necessary corrections.

Lyrics

ek shama do parwaane
mile pyaar ke jawaan (?) mein
khoon ki nadiyaa bah na jaayen
aaj shabistaan mein

kabhi haar kabhi jeet
yahi zindagi ki reet
kabhi haar kabhi jeet
yahi zindagi ki reet
yahi zindagi ki reet
yahi zindagi ki reet

pyaar ka ye khel hai
pyaar ka ye khel
karke ??? jo lagaaye
khele wahi khel
pyaar ka ye khel hai
pyaar ka ye khel
karke ??? jo lagaaye
khele wahi khel
ho ho ho ho
ho ho ho
isme karni ho preet
?? marne ki reet
kabhi haar kabhi jeet
yahi zindagi ki reet
yahi zindagi ki reet

faisle pyaar ke
hote hain shamsheer se
naseeb likhe jaate hain
khoon ki lakeer se
faisle pyaar ke
hote hain shamsheer se
naseeb likhe jaate hain
khoon ki lakeer se
ho ho ho ho
ho ho ho
ye hai ulfat ki reet
kabhi haar kabhi jeet
yehi zindagi ki reet
yehi zindagi ki reet

ik taraf hai duniyadaari
ik taraf hair pyaar
kiski hogi jeet bolo
kiski hogi haar
ik taraf hai duniyadaari
ik taraf hair pyaar
kiski hogi jeet bolo
kiski hogi haar
ho ho ho ho
ho ho ho
raja pyaar ki hogi jeet
raja pyaar ki hogi jeet
kabhi haar kabhi jeet
yahi zindagi ki reet
yahi zindagi ki reet

lad nahin sakta koi
duniyaa mein taqdeer se
hoga shikhari ghaayal
apne hi teer se
lad nahin sakta koi
duniyaa mein taqdeer se
hoga shikhari ghaayal
apne hi teer se
ho ho ho ho
ho ho ho
isko samjho na sangeet
ye hai zindagi ka geet
kabhi haar kabhi jeet
yahi zindagi ki reet
yahi zindagi ki reet

lad nahin sakta koi
duniyaa me taqdeer se
hoga shikhari ghaayal
apne hi teer se
hoga shikhari ghaayal
apne hi teer se
hoga shikhari ghaayal
apne hi teer se
hoga shikhari ghaayal
apne hi teer se
hoga shikhari ghaayal
apne hi teer se
