Jiyaa bechain mera din rain

Posted on: May 6, 2011

“Sheeshaa” (1952) is an obscure movie that had Sajjan, Nargis, Kumkum, Amar, Achla Sachdev, Vimla, Cuckoo etc in it.I have no idea about the fate of this movie at the box office, but I guess that this movie failed to set the box office on fire.

The songs of this movie too are not well known. Of course that does not mean that they are not worth listening to. Their obscurity has to do with the fact that few music lovers get exposed to the music of obscure movies.

Here is a song from this movie. It is sung by Shamshad Begam. Seeing the cast, I can guess that this song was picturised on Nargis. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Ghulam Mohammad composed the music.

I listened to the song for the first time only just now, and I loved it. yes, it is one of those “love at first hear” kind of a song.

Song-Jiyaa bechain mera din rain (Sheeshaa) (1952) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad


jiyaa bechain
mera din rain
kahoon kyaa laage
kahoon kyaa laage
kahaan morey nain
kahoon kyaa laage
kahaan morey nain
jiyaa bechain

kisi ke pyaar ko
dil mein chhupaaye baithhe hain
nazar ke teer kaleje pe khaaye baithhe hain
dil ka haal
dil ka haal kahaa na jaaye
kahe bin hamko rahaa na jaaye
jiyaa bechain

khushi ka din hai magar
dil ko chain aaj nahin
ho o o
milaa hai dard wo
jiska koi ilaaz nahin
naina bhed
naina bhed chhupa na paaye
kabhi ghabraaye
kabhi sharmaaye
jiyaa bechain

chaman hamaari ummeedon ka jal na jaaye kahin
hawaa badalte hi kismat badal na jaaye kahin
ho ho ho
ho ho
karke pyaar
karke pyaar
na main bach (?) jaaun
kahin barbaad na main ho jaun
jiyaa bechain
mera din rain
kahoon kyaa laage
kahoon kyaa laage kahaan morey nain
kahoon kyaa laage kahaan morey nain
jiyaa bechain
