Ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi

Posted on: April 13, 2011

“Chhoti Bahu” (1971) is a movie that had Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore in it. I have not seen this movie so I have no idea about the story of this movie, though the title indicated that the movie may have something to do with ladies making sacrifices for the family honour etc.

Here is a song from this movie. In this song, Rajesh Khanna wakes up one night, feeling romantic and wakes up Sharmila Tagore and expresses his desire in the Hindi movie style, viz by singing a song. She wakes up, and we see that they have a kid too. So they move out out of the house and the romantic song continues there.

The song is sung by Rafi. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Here is this song which I heard for the first time only just now. yes, it is right. I became aware of this song only after the lyrics of this song was sent to me by the reader Atif M.



Song-Ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi (Chhoti Bahu) (1971) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics (Provided by Atif M)

yeh raat hai pyaasi pyaasi
ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi
pyaasi na guzar jaaye
tum baanhon mein aa jaao
tum baanhon mein aa jaao
ya waqt theher jaaye
ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi

nayi aag dil ko jalaane lagi hai
machalna sikhaane lagi hai
jawaan pyaar qaboo mein kaise rahega
ke angdaayi aane lagi hai
ye palken uthaao ye nazren milaao
masti bikhar jaaye
ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi
ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi

kayi rang dekhe tumhaare labon mein
kaho to koi hum chura len
zara shokh kar len ye saada sa jeewan
jawani ko rangeen bana len
yeh aankhen na phero
yeh zulfen bikhero
duniya sanwar jaaye
ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi
ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi
pyaasi na guzar jaaye
tum baanhon mein aa jao
tum baanhon mein aa jao
ya waqt theher jaaye
ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi
