Ae zamaane bataa do dilon ki khataa

Posted on: December 4, 2010


Hindi movies called “Dost” seem to get released every decade. The first such movie was “Dost” (1944) and it had memorable music by Sajjad Hussain. In my days, another movie by this name, viz “Dost” (1974) was released which had memorable music by Laxmikant Pyarelal. There was no movie by this name in 1964, though there was a movie called “Dosti” (1964), which again had memorable songs composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

There was another movie called “Dost” in 1950s. This movie, which was released in 1954 is not all that well known, and even its music has been forgotten, but the music of this movie is also in the same league as the music of the same names and realesed in other decades.

Hansraj Bahl was the music director and Verma Malik was the lyricist of “Dost” (1954) and together they created some wonderful melodies in this movie. Hansraj Bahl had introduced a female singer called Madhubala Jhaweri (not to be confused with Madhubala the actress) in one earlier movie. He used her voice in “Dost” (1954) as well.

Here is a lovely duet from this movie. It is sung by Madhubala Jhaweri and Talat Mehmood. I first became aware of this song only just now, and I liked this song the very first time I listened to it.

Here is this wonderful duet from “Dost” (1954).


Song-Ae zamaane bataa do dilon ki khataa (Dost) (1954) Singer-Madhubala Jhaweri,Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

Ae zamaane bataa
do dilon ki khataa
hamko barbaad karke
tujhe kyaa milaa
hamko barbaad karke
tujhe kyaa milaa
ae zamaane bataa
do dilon ki khataa
hamko barbaad karke
tujhe kyaa milaa
hamko barbaad karke
tujhe kyaa milaa

phool khilne na paaye ke murjhaa gaye
haay kaisi museebat mein ham aa gaye
honth seene pade
aansoo peene pade
zindagi mein nahin zindagi ka mazaa
ae zamaane bataa
aaa aaa
zamaane bataa

rah gaye dil mein armaan dam tod ke
hampe hansti hai taqdeer munh mod ke
pyaar ke din gaye
hamse wo chhin gaye
phool se ho gayi aaj khushboo judaa
ae zamaane bataa
aa aa aa
zamaane bataa

dil ke tukde huye dard badhne lagaa
bante bante muqaddar bigadne lagaa
tum udhar ham idhar
dil ko ab hai ye dar
haay
tum udhar ham idhar
dil ko ab hai ye dar
tum samajh lo na hamko kahin bewafaa
tum samajh lo na hamko kahin bewafaa
ae zamaane bataa
aaa aaa aaa
zamaane bataa
do dilon ki khataa
hamko barbaad karke
tujhe kyaa milaa

Dear Atulji,
As my luck would have it,
Very recently I joined your ‘band wagon’
and become an ardent follower of the ‘labour of love’. Really, you have done a great service to the film music lovers. We really feel proud and indebted. Keep it up .May God bless you .
