Bahaaron thhaam lo ab dil

Posted on: May 12, 2011

Hindi movie scenario was so rich during the golden era that great music composers almost grew on trees. Some of them went on to become legends, but there were many great composers that failed to land sufficient number of assignments that their talents merited.

The name of G S Kohli will merit an honourable mention among the list of talented music composers that failed to get their rightful dues in the industry.

For much of his career, he was an assistant music director of O P Nayyar, and many great O P Nayyar compositions were arranged by G S Kohli.

On the few occasions where G S Kohli got an opportunity to work as an independent music director, he left his mark. Personally I regard his music in “Shikaari” (1963) as one of the major musical highlights of that musical year. The movie was a B grade movie, and unfortunately he did not help G S Kohli’s career as much as it should have.

Here is another example of G S Kohli’s talent. This song is from “Namaste Jee” (1965). It is a duet sung by Mukesh and Lata. Anjaan is the lyricist.

The video of this song is not available. One is not sure if it is a good thing or not, because this song was picturised on Mehmood and Ameeta, and Mehmood is not really all that good in lip syncing romantic songs like this.

Coming to the song itself, it is a superb song that richly deserves to be bette known and heard among music lovers.



Song-Bahaaron thhaam lo ab dil (Namaste jee) (1965) Singers-Mukesh, Lata, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-G S Kohli


bahaaron thaam lo ab dil meraa mehboob aataa hai
ho sharaarat kar na naazuk dil sharam se doob jaataa hai
bahaaron thaam lo ab dil

qahar andaaz hain tere qayaamat hain teri baaten
ho ho ho ho
ho meri to jaan le lengi ye baaten ye mulaaqaaten
sanam sharmaaye jab aise mazaa kuchh aur aataa hai
ho sharaarat kar na naazuk dil sharam se doob jaataa hai
bahaaron thaam lo ab dil

labon par ye hansi qaatil ghazab jaadoo nigaahon mein
ho ho ho ho
qasam tujhko mohabbat ki machal na aise raahon mein
aise raahon mein
machal jaataa hai dil jab ruubaroo dildaar aataa hai
ho sharaarat kar na naazuk dil sharam se doob jaataa hai
bahaaron thaam lo ab dil

thank you for this song, now laalach meri aur bad rahi hai, how about another rare gem sung by lataji from this film :”Ye do naina matwaare kiske liye, bechain hai chaand sitaare kiske liye”.This lataji`s song, according to myself is “MELODIOUS”



Well someone managed to find a video of this song – – not of good quality though…


The above is not the original video of the song, video clippings of another movie starring Mehmood,Ameeta was mixed cleverely and edited in the above provided video link





original video of pyase panchi(1961) sung by Hemant Kumar and Suman Kalyanpur(tum hi mere meet ho)
cleverly mixed with Namaste jee audio


please update the data base, there are two more songs of ashabhosle also available.
Any idea of third stanza of the song “baharo tham lo ab dil”?
