Jeewan se bhari teri aankhen

Posted on: March 23, 2011

Kishore Kumar, who made his debut as a playback singer in 1948 remained on the fringes for the first two decades of his singing career. It was in 1968 that he burst into the Hindi playback scene like a Tsunami that swept away everything in its wake.

It is widely believed that it was the combination of Kishore Kumar as singer, R D Burman as music director and Rajesh Khanna as the actor that did the trick. There is indeed much truth in it. But it does not mean that every other music directors and actors suffered. Some of them survived and continued to thrive.

Kalyanji Anandji were on of the few 9Laxmikant Pyarelal and s d Burman being the others) who adapted well to the changed circumstances and continued to do well. In fact, many of the memorable Kishore kumar songs of that era were composed by Kalyanji Anandji.Some such movies being “Safar” (1970), “Sachchaa Jhoothha” (1970) etc. In addition, Kalyanji Anandji continued to create hit music with other singers, viz Mukesh etc too, during those years.

Here is a memorable song from those days. This song from “Safar”(1970), which is sung by Kishore Kumar, is picturised on Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore. Indeewar is the lyricist and Kalyanji Anandji composed the music.



Song-Jeewan se bhari teri aankhen (Safar) (1970) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Kalyanji Anandji


jeewan se bhari teri aankhen
majboor karen jeene ke liye
jeene ke liye
saagar bhi taraste rahte hain
tere roop kaa ras peene ke liye
peene ke liye
jeewan se bhari teri aankhen

tasweer banaaye kyaa koyi
kyaa koyi likhe tujhpe kavitaa
rangon chhandon mein samaayegi
rangon chhandon mein samaayegi
kis tarah se itni sundartaa
ek dhadkan hai tu dil ke liye
ek jaan hai tu jeene ke liye
jeene ke liye
jeewan se bhari teri aankhen

madhuban ki sugandh hai saanson mein
baahon mein kanval ki komaltaa
kirnoon kaa tej hai chehre pe
hirnon ki hai tujh mein chanchaltaa
aanchal kaa tere ek taar bahut
koyi chhaak jigar seene ke liye
seene ke liye
jeewan se bhari teri aankhen
majboor karen jeene ke liye
jeene ke liye
jeewan se bhari teri aankhen

On the phenomenon of Kishore Kumar storming the Hindi film music with Aradhana in 1969 (to be exact) sweeping everything in its wake, I have written a detailed article Mohammad Rafi versus Kishore Kumar on my blog, which also expectedly generated a great deal of comments. You may find the article interesting.


This song and a couple of others from this movie and Amar Prem are in my opinion the best picturizations on Rajesh Khanna and also the RK/Tagore pairing. Anyway I’ve always liked this song and am not tired of it even now.


Well said. kalyanji Anandji were one of the most underrated music director of the Hindi Films. But their contribution to music is great. They were masters of melodies be it romantic songs,philosiphical songs, sad songs, westernised songs and folk songs. They composed unforgetable songs for almost all the singers right from Mohd rafi,Mukesh, Kishore,Lata,Asha, Mahendra Kapoor and Manna Dey even for new singers like Suresh Wadekar, Sadhna Sargam, Alka , kumar Sanu etc. Another great thing was they are perhaps one of the music directors who used most number of lyrics writheres and singers. They have unlike other famous MDs not restricted working with specifed singers or lyrics writers. They were not given the credit which they deserved. If you listen their early music and till they were at peak tll 1970’0 they were very consistent and versatile in music. Their songs have a great everlasting impact.



such a beautiful song..luv it very much 🙂


This song is my favorite romantic song and one of the best songs of kishore da and rajeshji. It is so beautiful, really. The lyrics are simple but have a very deep meaning. I never get bored of listening to this song. The music has a sense of purity in it. It is so mesmerizing, especially the line “ek dhadkan hai tu dil ke liye,ek jaan hai tu jeene ke liye” . It just seeps through your heart. Thank you for making this song what it is kishore da. Nobody else could have done it. And thank you rajesh ji and sharmila ji for your fabulous chemistry on screen which made this song even more beautiful.
