Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Dekh lo aaj hamko jee bhar ke

Posted on: June 8, 2011

The dominant kind of music in 1980s was disco music. It was this kind of music that sounded the death knell of the golden era of Hindi movie music.

Songs of 1980s are still remembered today. But no, it is not the disco songs of those days that we remember. Curiously, just when Disco songs were ruling the roost, ghazals too were making a comeback in Hindi movies. Low budget movies, also known as art movies, which did not need disco music, were using ghazals instead. And what lovely ghazals they were too.

One of the low budget movies of those days was “Baazaar” (1982). I have discussed two songs from this movie already. Here is another song from this movie.

This sopng, which is a background song, gets played when Supriya Pathak and Farooque Shaikh meet each other and Supriya Pathak begs him to forget her, as they are not destined for each other.

This song is sung by Jagjit Kaur. Lyrics are written by Mirza Shauq. Music is composed by Khayyam, the husband of Jagjit Kaur.

Here is this song from 1980s, which proves that good music was being created even in 1980s.



Song-Dekh lo aaj hamko jee bhar ke (Baazaar) (1982) Singer-Jagjit Kaur, Lyrics-Mirza Shauq, MD-Khayyam


dekh lo aaj hamko jee bharke
dekh lo aaj hamko jee bharke
koi aataa nahin hai phir marke
dekh lo aaj hamko jee bharke

ho gaye tum,
agar ke saudaayi
door pahunchegi meri ruswaayi
dekh lo
dekh lo aaj hamko jee bharke

aao achchi tarah se karlo pyaar
ke nikal jaayen kuchh dil ka bukhaar
dekh lo aaj hamko jee bharke
dekh lo aaj hamko jee bharke
koi aataa nahin hai phir marke
dekh lo aaj hamko jee bharke

For those who dont know,Mirza Shauq Lakhnawi was a royal poet in the darbaar of Nawab Wajid ali shaah of lucknow.this lyrics has been taken from his Masnavi (means long poem in urdu) called “Zaher e Ishq”


Thanks for this inforamtion. I was under the mistaken impression that he was a lyricist of Hindi movies. The fact that he lived one century ago was not known to me.


Atul ji/atiullah ji,

Mirza shauq-whose real name was Tassadiq Hussain khan,was born in a famous clan of Hakeems(unani physicians) of Lucknow.(1783-1871).
He was trained in the family profession as a Hakeem,but he was a shayar by nature.He wrote Gazals,but specialised in Masnavi-a form of long poetry,for which Lucknow was famous in those days,
He wrote FAREB-E-ISHQ, BAHAR-E-ISHQ and also ZAHER-E-ISHQ masanavis.
The above lines are from his FAREB-E-ISHQ and not from Zaher-e-ishq masanavi.
Due to his duel specialisation,he was appointed Royal Physician and Royal Poet by Nawab Wajid ali shah of Awadh(Lucknow).



Atul sir,
I have all ther 3 masanavis,published by Hind Pocket Books.
The lines are indeed from Fareb e ishq as mr.Deshmukh says and NOT from Zaher e ishq as Mr.Atiullah says.
