Do din ki zindagi kaisi hai zindagi

Posted on: December 9, 2010

“Satyakaam” (1969), which was a critically acclaimed movie that failed at the box office, had some nice songs in it which have sadly been forgotten with time. And there are people like me who never heard the songs of this movie, despite living though that era.

If I have still discussed songs from this movie in this blog, then it is because my readers are aware of this movie and its songs and their farmaishes for these songs have enabled me to know about the songs of this movie.

Here is another song from this movie about which I had no idea. I became aware of this song yesterday because of the farmaish for this song.

This song is sung by Lata. Video of this movie is not available but I am told that this song is picturised on Sharmila Tagore,the heroine and Manmohan,the villain. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist and music is comnoised by Laxmikant Pyarelal.



Song-Do din ki zindagi kaisi hai zindagi (Satyakaam) (1969) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal


do din ki zindagi
kaisi hai zindagi
do din ki zindagi
kaisi hai zindagi
koi na ye jaane
ho ho ho ho
bheetar andheraa hai
baahar hai raushni
dekhen naa parwaane
do din ki zindagi
kaisi hai zindagi

armaan ki basti
jaane kaisi hai basti
utni hi sooni
ho ho ho ho
utni hi sooni
jitni chhaayi hai masti
nazron mein baankpan
aankhon mein sau chaman
seene mein veeraane
do din ki zindagi
kaisi hai zindagi

pahle to kyaa kyaa
sapne dikhlaaye duniyaa
phir khud hi tootaa
ho ho ho
phir khud hi tootaa sapnaa
ban jaaye duniyaa
duniyaa ki chaah ki
nagmon ki aah ki
jhoothe hain afsaane
do din ki zindagi
kaisi hai zindagi
ho ho ho ho
ho ho ho

phoolon ne dekhaa
khil ke murjhaanaa dil kaa
taaron ne dekhaa
ho ho ho ho
taaron ne dekhaa
jal ke bujh jaanaa dil kaa
the kal jo meharbaan
thhe kal jo raazdaan
nikle wo begaane
do din ki zindagi
kaisi hai zindagi
hmm hmm hmm

I love you for this gesture,thanks thanks thanks

Further, one correction about the name you have written.It should be “Manmohan”( not the senior actor manmohan krishna).

Late “Manmohan”, acted in many a films as a character artiste, mostly in villain(or villain`s sidekick, womaniser roles, who rapes heroines or hero`s sisters,(eg.Araadhna,Pyar hi pyaar(He is there in rafi`s song:
“Main kahin kavi na ban jaaoon”,
(Names of other films he acted: Upkaar,
Naya zamana-1971,Yaadgaar-1970,Roti kapda aur makaan)
I have read that,he was a well educated,very good natured individual, to the contrary of his hindi film villain image.

He is the father of famous film producer Nitin manmohan, who is a famous producer of many films(eg.”Bol radha bol(rishi & juhi chawla),army,ladla(sridevi)Baaghi(salman khan`s),Yamla pagla deewana(2010)Dus(sanjay dutt),Insaaf(1987)”.He is also very good freind of Vinod khanna.

love you again


not fair Prakashchandraji
u bet me to the correction table. u ve written all that i wanted to write abt manmohan. 😀


Madamji (Peevesie`s Momji),

Call me prakash or prakashchandra,
“ji” makes me very senior,which I am not,(its embarassing that you are giving me so much of respect)

Anyways, putting my thoughts in Hindi, makes me,
to communicate better:
(“Aapke vichaaron ko maine mere naam pe likh diya,bas itna si baat hai. Aap apne baaton mein jo apnaapan dikhayaa hai, uske liye “DIL SE” shukriya. Main jo likhta hoon, usse aapne hi likha hai , aap aisa samjhiye “).

I hope I am not sounding very hindi filmy or dramatic. My English is bad, but while writing in Hindi, I came to know, my Hindi is also becoming worst.(“Kuch galat likha to maaf kar dena”)

lots of regards & thanks
