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

Aansoo thhi meri zindagi

Posted on: July 8, 2011

“Bikhhre Moti” (1951) is a movie I have little idea about. But I have gathered that this movie had actors like Jeevan, Neelam, Kamini Kaushal, Nigar, Jayant, Ranjana, Sherry etc in it. From the movie title, the movie appears to be a tear jerker movie.

At least this song is a tearjerker song. The song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki, whose voice I quite like and who in fact was one of the biggest female playback singers in pre Lata days.

Akhtar Ul Imaan is the lyricist. This is the first song of this lyricist in this blog, though I recall hearing his name as a lyricist of songs on quite a few occasions while listening to songs on radio in 1970s.

Ghulam Mohammad is the music director.

Song-Aansoo thhi meri zindagi (Bikhhre Moti) (1951) Singers-Amirbai Karnataki, Rafi, Lyrics-Akhtar ul Imaan, MD-Ghulam Mohammad


aansoo thhi meri zindagi
aankhon ne jo bahaa diyaa
roti hai mujhpe bekasi
hasraton ne mitaa diyaa
hasraton ne mitaa diyaa

milkey bichhad gaye ho tum
bankey bigad gaye hain ham
bankey bigad gaye hain ham
apni khushi ke vaaste
tumney hamen mitaa diyaa
tumney hamen mitaa diyaa

sunke koi karegaa kyaa
toote dilon kaa maajraa
toote dilon kaa maajraa
royaa hai phoot-phoot kar
hamne jise sunaa diyaa
hamne jise sunaa diyaa

wo jo tumhaaraa pyaar thhaa
maut ki neend so gayaa
maut ki neend so gayaa
ab usey dhoondhtey ho kyaa
khaaq mein jab milaa diyaa
khaaq mein jab milaa diyaa

meri khushi bhi chheen li
hanske mujhe rulaa diyaa
hanske mujhe rulaa diyaa
tum to meraa naseeb thhey
tumne mujhey ye kyaa diyaa
tumne mujhey ye kyaa diyaa

Atul ji,

AKHTAR UL IMAAN(1915-1996) was a very capable and famous urdu poet.He was the winner of Sahitya Akademy Award in 1962 for his urdu poetry book Yadein and also got Iqbal Sanman Award in 1963.
He came to Bombay after doing a job in Delhi A.I.Radio and joined film industry as a writer.He has rarely written lyrics for any movie as he considered it to be unworthy for urdu poetry,but he excelled in story,screenplay and dialogue writting.
He was a regular for many B.R.Chopra films for Dialogues.He got FILMFARE Award for Dialogues in Dharamputra in 1961 and Waqt in 1966.
Some of his films are Nirdosh,36 Ghante,Kanoon,Waqt,Mera saaya,Dharamputra,Gumrah etc.(almost 40 odd films).

BIKHARE MOTI was made in 1935,1951 and 1971.
The above film was produced by great India productions and directed by S.M.Yusuf.Lyrics were also written by Khumar Barabankvi.The cast included Kamini Kaushal,Nigar Sultana,Jayant(whose son Amjad khan married the daughter of Akhtar ul Imaan),Jeevean,Neelam Kothari etc.
The story stressed need of the joint family and how,if it breaks,life becomes difficult.
