Affo khudaayaa

Posted on: August 6, 2011


It is an unenvious task for a music director when he is asked to create a song that should be inspired from an iconic song and at the same time it should stand out on its own. I am sure the makers of “Jab Jab Phool Khile” (1965) wanted Kalyanji Anandji to create a song similar to the iconic song Yahoo chaahe koyi mujhe junglee kahe(Junglee). It is not at all an enviable job by any stretch of the imagination.

To the credit of Kalyanji Anandji and his musical team, they have done a very decent job, coming up with a clone of the “Junglee” song. Anand Bakshi the lyricist replaced the word “Yaahoo” with “Affo khudaaya” in this song and the song was picturised not on Shammi Kapoor, but on his Kid brother Shashi Kapoor. In “Junglee”, Shammi Kapoor slides on ice, her Shashi Kapoor dives into the Dal lake waters !

One think that was common in both the songs was the singer. Rafi, who sang “Yaahoo”, was there to sing this song as well.

If one can get over the obsession to draw parallels with the “Junglee” song, then this song on its own is an outstanding song. and that is how this song can be enjoyed the most.

Here is this sperb high energy song sung by Rafi with gusto in “Jab Jab Phool Khile”. The amount of enery that Rafi brings to this song is second to none, be iit the “Junglee” song or any other enegetic songs that he has sung in his career. The vigour and the energy level that Rafi imparts in this song is incredible and it boggles the mind even today, nearly half a century later.

The lyrics of this song were sent to me by nahm a few while back and I was looking forward to discussing this song for quite some time.


Song-Affo khudaayaa (Jab Jab Phool Khile) (1965) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics(Lyrics by nahm)

affoo khudayaa
waah waah waah waah
waah waah waah waah
is deewaane dil ne kya jaadoo chalaaya
tum ko ham pe
pyaar aaya
pyaar aaya
O ham ko tum pe
pyaar aaya
pyaar aaya
affoo khudaayaa
khudaayaa
khudaayaa

ae dil kehna
ye sach hai na
ae dil kehna
ye sach hai na
baat hai ye aisi
zamaana nahin maanta
ho
baat hai ye aisi
zamaana nahin maanta
ham ko tumhaara
deewaana nahin maanta
na main gulshan
na main taara
na main kaajal
na main baadal
main hoon saaya
O tum ko ham pe
pyaar aaya
ho pyaar aaya
affoo khudaayaa
khudaayaa
khudaayaa

jee liya maine
jee liya maine
jee liya maine
jee liya maine
ab chaahe mujh ko
zamaana goli maar de
hoye oye oye
ab chaahe mujh ko
zamaana goli maar de
raja ke shikaarey ko
bhanwar mein utaar de
aage peeche kya lena hai
mere dil ne
jo bhi maanga tha wo paaya
tum ko
ham pe
pyaar aaya
pyaar aaya
affoo khudaayaa
khudaayaa
khudaayaa

dil mein ye aayi
de ke duhaayi
dil mein ye aayi
de ke duhaayi
patthharon se
sar takraaun main deewaana
patthharon se s
ar takraaun main deewaana
jal jaaoon ban ke shama ka parwaana
marna jeena khaana peena
hansna rona
nahaana dhona sona uthna
chalna phirna aana jaana
ham deewane ne muhabbat mein bhulaaya
ham ko
tum pe
pyaar aaya
pyaar aaya
ho
ham ko tum pe
pyaar aaya
pyaar aaya
affoo khudaayaa
khudaayaa
khudaayaa
khudaayaa
khudaayaa

If they really set out to make another “yahoo, chahe koyi mujhe junglee kahe” , i would say Kalyanji Anandji made a better job. The 60’s songs created by all stalwart music directors, took so much out of Rafi as a singer that it is just as well, Kishore kumar took the attention away from him in the 70’s.

I personally, prefer the shankar jaikishan ‘s 50’s and early 60’s music to the music which came after Junglee.

FANTASTIC HI ENERGY SONG SUNG BY RAFI SAHAB.

How different are the four songs sung by Rafi sahab in this movie!
We have the soft and lilting “Ek tha gul aur ek thi bulbul”, then the superbly romantic song, “Pardesiyon se na akhiyaan milana”, then this hi energy “Tum ko hum pe pyar aaya”, and finally the pathos filled “Yahan main ajnabi hoon”. Only Rafi sahab can do justice to such a wide repertoire of songs. It reinforces my sentiment that there are many good singers and then there is Rafi sahab. His singing is in a different zone altogether. I cannot use the past tense as far as Rafi sahab is concerned. His music, his singing, his voice will always be immortal.

“Yahan main ajnabi hoon” is yet to be posted, as also the Suman Kalyanpur – Rafi sahab duet, “Na Na karte pyar tumhi se kar baithe”.

Looking forward to seeing this lovely songs.

If I remember correctly, in around the same time, Shashi Kapoor-Nanda starer MOHABBAT ISKO KAHETE HAIN was released and I rate the songs of this movie (MD: Khayyam) a shade higher than that of JAB JAB PHOOL KHILE(JJPK). But the film failed and the songs were relegated into background compared with songs of JJPK which became highly popular following the tremendous success of the film at box office.

After about one year, NEEND HAMARI KHWAB TUMARE (MD: Madan Mohan) with the same Shashi Kapoor-Nanda pair was released. This film too failed though it had also very catchy songs.

Mohabbat Isko Kehte Hain had one lovely Suman – Rafi sahab duet – THEHRIYE HOSH MEIN AA LOON TO CHALE JAIYEGA and one song picturised on RAMESH DEO – the Marathi film actor, who acted in a few Hindi movies, mostly essaying the baddie roles – MERI NAGAH NE KYA KAAM LAAJAWAAB KIYA. I did not know the film bombed at the B/O. Unfortunate for these lovely songs.
