Ye saaye hain ye duniyaa hai

Posted on: July 24, 2011

I know about many older movies, but frankly I had never heard of this movie called “Sitaaraa” (1980). I became aware of this movie and its songs only because of the lyrics of this song sent by Prakashchandra.

This movie had Mithun Charkavarty, Zarina Wahaab,Kanhaiyyalal,Paintal, Mac mohan, Savita bajaj,T.P.Jain,Agha,Suresh chatwal,Yunus Parwaiz, Dinesh Thakur etc in it. This movie was directed by Meeraj, who was an assistant of Gulzar. He had also directed “Palkon Ki Chhaaon mein” a few years ago.

Personally I do not recall even listening to the songs of this movie at that time. so the first time I have ever heard a song from this movie is only just now, some three decades after these songs were created.

Here is this lovely song from “Sitaaraa” (1980). This song is`sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is picturised on Zarina Wahab. Gulzar is the lyricist and music is composed by R D Burman.



song-Ye saaye hain ye duniyaa hai (Sitaaraa) (1980) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

Ye saaye hain,
ye duniya hai
parchaayiyon ki,
ye saaye hain
ye duniya hai
bhari bheed mein khaali
bhari bheed mein khaali
tanhaayiyon ki
ye saaye hain,
ye duniya hain

yahaan koi saahil
sahaara nahin hai
kahin doobne ko
kinaara nahin hai
yahaan koi saahil
sahaara nahin hai
yahan saari raunakh hai ruswaayiyon ki
ye saaye hain,
ye duniya hai
parchaayiyon ki,
ye saaye hain
ye duniya hai

yahaan saare chehre hain,
maange huye se
nigaahon mein aansoo bhi taange huye se
yahaan saare chehre hain,
maange huye se
badi neechi raahein hain,
oonchaayiyon ki
ye saaye hain,
ye duniyaa hai
parchaayiyon ki,
ye saaye hain
ye duniya hai
bhari bheed mein khaali tanhaayiyon ki
ye saaye hain,
ye duniya hai

Thanks for the posting,
another stanza is there in the audio track which was released by HMV, under the label of GULZAR REMEMBERS PANCHAM:

“kayee chaand utkar jalaaye bujhaaye
bahut humne chaaha zaraa neend aaye..
kayee chaand utkar jalaaye bujhaaye
yahaan raat hoti hai bedaariyon/bedaariyon ki….
ye saaye hain ye duniya hai
parchhayiyon ki ye saaye hain
ye duniyaa hai”

you have made my sunday afternoon, I am very fond of this song.
thanks again


hey Prakashchandraji
thank you for sending the lyrics of this song, and atul for posting it.
and by the way i do not remember if had heard this when the movie released but i remember the other song “Sajnaa Ka Kangana'” from this movie
but anyway what a lovely composition and what more to expect from the Asha-Gulzar-R D combo!!!!!!!:-)


In fact, I have to thank you PEEVESIE`S MOMji, for writing two lines regarding the song.

Atleast one person is there who had heard the songs of this almost forgotten film.

I always get a feeling that Oh my god!, whether I am the only person on the earth, to hear such songs and requesting songs from such obscure films, which no one hears and sees(jinke baare mein almost no one is interested), anything is WRONG with me?

Atulji and all the other readers kya sochthe honge mere baare mein ye sochke main hairaan ho jaata hoon, kabhi kabaar!!!!!!??????
