Muhabbat isko kehte hain

Posted on: May 5, 2011


“Return of Mr Superman” (1960) is a B grade movie that had actors like Jairaj, Sheila Ramani, David, Rajan Haksar, Helen, Shammi etc in it.

The movie was B grade, so according to my Axiom, its songs must be A grade. And so they were.I have discussed three fantastic songs from this movie in the past. They may be less known, but they are all gems.

Here is another rare gem from this movie. This song is picturised as a boat song. A few men and women are crossing a river on this boat. A man (the hero, perhaps) wonders what is “muhabbat” (love) and how it looks like, the way school students in their chemistry class wonder about the properties of ,say ,Nitrogen gas. The lady (is it Sheila Ramani ?) like a school teacher goes on to describe “Muhabbat” in this song, with its properties,characteristics, uses, etc :).

This song is sung by a male voice (I am unable to identify it positively, but it could be Shankar Das Gupta). The female voice is unmistakably Mubarak Begam’s. Kaif Irfani is the lyricist and Anil Biswas is the music director.

As mentioned earlier, this song is a gem, and the fact that it is sung by the underutilised talented singer Mubarak Begam makes it a rare gem indeed.

There are many gaps in my information. For example, I am unable to identify the male singer and almost all the actors on whom this song is picturised. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them and throw more light on this movie.
PS-The man who initially sings is Rajan Haksar. I thank Prakashchandra for this identification. The bald man who speaks a few words in the song is of course David, the beloved character artist of those days.
The lady lip syncing the song is Naazi. I thank Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh for identifying her.

Song-Muhabbat isko kehte hain (Return of Mr Superman) (1960) Singer-Mubarak Begam, Lyrics-Kaif Irfani, MD-Anil Biswas

Lyrics

aji muhabbat kisko kehte hain
muhabbat kaisi hoti hai
kisi par marne waalon ki tabeeyat kaisi hoti hai
aji hamse poochhiye
aaa aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
kisi ko dekh ke dil ka kisi pe aa jaanaa
nazar mein aake zaraa dil se dil ka takraana
khushi se dil ki umangon ka phir ke lehraanaa
magar jo baat hai dil ki
usse na keh paanaa
kisi ki shokh nigaah
nigaahon ka jhuk ke sharmaanaa
inhin adaaon se banta hai ek afsaanaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai
jigar mein
haay
jigar mein
uyi
jigar mein dard uthhta hai
tamannaa dil mein roti hai
tamannaa dil mein roti hai
tamannaa dil mein roti hai
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai

bas !
itni si baat thhi jise afsaana kar diyaa !

nahin jee
aur suniye
nazar se dil ke ishaare kalaam karte hain
ye teer wo hain jo chupke se kaam karte hain
aji haseenon ka sab ehteraam karte hain
guroor waale bhi inko salaam karte hain
magar jo mar ke muha..
muhabbat mein naam karte hain
wo husn waalon ko apna ghulaam karte hain
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai
jigar mein
haay
jigar mein
uyi
jigar mein dard uthtaa hai
tamanna dil mein roti hai
tamanna dil mein roti hai
tamanna dil mein roti hai
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai

aji aur kya hota hai !

nazar mein saikdon armaan jaag uthhte hain
jigar mein dard ke paikaan(?) jaag uthhte hain
kisi ke pyaar ke ehsaan jaag uthte hain
naye fasaane ke unwaan jaag uthhte hain
qayaamaton ke ye saamaan jaag uthhte hain
hazaaron aur bhi toofan jaag uthhte hain
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai
jigar mein
haay
jigar mein
uyi
jigar mein dard uthhta hai
tamannaa dil mein roti hai
tamannaa dil mein roti hai
tamannaa dil mein roti hai
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai

aji ye sab khatre hain
to ham kisi haseen ki taraf dekhenge hi nahin

kisi haseen ka deedaar ho hi jaataa hai
nazar ka dil pe zaraa waar ho hi jaataa hai
laden nigaahen to iqrar ho hi jaataa hai
nazar milen to zara pyaar ho hi jaata hai
nazar se pyaar ka
izhaar ho hi jaataa hai
nashaa ye aisa hai sarkaar
ho hi jaataa hai
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai
jigar mein
haay
jigar mein
uyi
jigar mein dard uthhta hai
tamannaa dil mein roti hai
tamannaa dil mein roti hai
tamannaa dil mein roti hai
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai
muhabbat isko kehte hain
muhabbat aisi hoti hai

1)The guy standing on the boat with cap is “Rajan haksar(who later married actress Manorama(evil chachi of Seetha aur geeta”)

2)the lady who sings is not “Sheila ramaani”, sheila ramani is ,more beautiful & stylish than this lady. Sheila ramaani acted in dev anand`s Taxi driver as Club dancer. I don`t know the name of the lady who sings.

3)And the fat,short guy seated(who mouths dialogues in between the song)alongwith the above mentioned lady is the famous character artiste David Abraham(who acted in Jhuk gaya aasman, Bootpolish, Baton Baton mein, Khoobsurat, Khatta meeta, abhimaan.

Thanks for identifying Rajan Haksar. I know David Abraham. This leaves us to identify the lady who lip syncs this song.

David Abraham reminds me of the song “Nanhe Munhe bachche teri mutthi mien kya hai” from “Bootpolish”. This is the only kids song which is still not posted on this site. I was also not able to find the video of this on Youtube though the audio is available.
