Betaab dil ki tamannaa yahi hai

Posted on: March 27, 2011

I have already discussed as many as three songs from “Hanste Zakhm” (1973). But this movie has more nice songs in it, of course. The request for this song was a long pending one.

Here is this superb song from “Hanste Zakhm” (1973). It is sung by Lata. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist and Madan Mohan composed the music.

The song is picturised on Priya Rajwansh and Navin Nischol. This movie could have been a good one with better plot and better casting, but then we arm chair critics have no idea what it takes to make a movie. The director of this movie was of course known to use Priya rajwansh as the leading lady in all his movies, come what may. So we had no choice in the matter as far as picturisation of such songs were concerned.

The song is a timeless classic, of course. It is one among dozens of great Lata-Madan Mohan compositions that one can keep listening to.



Song-Betaab dil ki tamanna yahi hai (Hanste Zakhm) (1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Madan Mohan


betaab dil ki tamannaa yahi hai
betaab dil ki tamannaa yahi hai
tumhen chaahenge tumhen poojenge
tumhen apnaa Khudaa banaayenge,
betaab dil ki tamannaa yahi hai

soone soone khwaabon mein
jab tak tum na aaye thhe
khushiyaan thhin sab auron ki,
gham bhi saare paraaye thhe
apne se bhi chupaayi thhin
dhadkan apne seene ki
ham ko jeenaa padtaa thhaa,
khwaahish kab thhi jeene ki
ab jo aake tum ne
hamen jeenaa sikhaa diyaa hai
chalo duniyaa nayi basaayenge,
betaab dil ki tamannaa yahi hai

bheegi bheegi palkon par
sapne itne sajaaye hain
dil mein jitnaa andheraa thhaa,
utne ujaale aaye hain
tum bhi ham ko jagaanaa naa,
baahon mein jo so jaayen
jaise khushboo phoolon mein
tum mein yoon hi kho jaayen
pal bhar kisi janam mein
kabhi chhoote naa saath apnaa
tumhen aise gale lagaayenge,
betaab dil ki tamannaa yahi hai
tumhen chaahenge tumhen poojenge
tumhen apnaa Khudaa banaayenge,
betaab dil ki tamannaa yahi hai

If my memory serves me right, I have read somewhere, this song has been picturised in director chetan anand and priya rajvansh`s residence and most probably priya rajvansh came from a royal family.

That leaves one more song of the film to be included in the blog, that again picturised on priya rajvansh(in the film her role is of a prostitute) offering liquour and herself to her male customers like K.N.Singh and company, after her father estranged father asks her to forget her lover.
Picturisation of Song does have adult content, but it has been picturised beautifully and sensitively, if you overlook priya rajvansh`s physical appearance and clothes. I recommend this song to be heard, not to be seen. The AUDIO CHARM of the song may be lost, if you watch the vidio of this song.

“Raat ke sannate mein is gaane ko sirf suno, tho jaano”(especially the lines”dil ke naazuk ragen toothi hai, yaad itna bhi koi naa aaye”)

:Aaj socha tho aansoo bhar aaye,
aaj socha tho aansoo bhar aaye
muddathein ho gayee muskuraaye…
aaj socha tho aansoo bhar aaye
aaj socha tho aansoo bhar aaye

har kadam par udhar mud ke dekha
har kadam par udhar mud ke dekha
unki mehfil se hum ut tho aaye
aaj socha tho aansoo bhar aaye
aaj socha tho aansoo bhar aaye

dil ki nazuk ragen tootthi hain,
dil ki nazuk ragen tootthi hain
yaad itna bhi koi na aaye
aaj socha tho aansoo bhar aaye
aaj socha tho aansoo bhar aaye

reh gayee zindagi dard banke,
reh gayee zindagi dard banke
dard dil mein chchupaaye chchupaaye
aaj socha tho aansoo bhar aaye
aaj socha tho aansoo bhar aaye

1973:kaifi azmi,lata, madan mohan:Hanste zakham
“kya gaya hai,
likhnewaale ne dard ko kitne khoobsurat lafzon mein sameta hai, lataji ne kya gaya hai, madanji ne kya sangeet diya hai
har bhar sunta hoon, tho dil chupke se aansoo bahaata hai”

Sorry “2 line likhne gaya, pura ka pura likh diya, mistake ho to correction kar dena, jab be is gaane ke baare mein bolta hoon, mera dhimaag control mein hi nahin rehta hai,kuch zyada ho to atulji maaf kar dena”.



Song is incomplete. Last lines are …

Wade bhi hai kasme bhi
Beeta waqt ishaaron ka
Kaise kaise arman hai
Mela jaise baharon ka
Saara gulshan de daala
Kaliyan aur khilao na
hanste hanste rode hum
itna bhi to hansao na
dil me tumhi base ho
sara aanchal wo bhar
chuka hai
kahan itni khushi chhupayenge
Betab dil ki tamanna ….
