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

Machal gaya haay mera dil

Posted on: October 20, 2011


This article is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

With a film title as ‘Haaye Mera Dil’ and with Kishore Kumar and IS Johar in the star cast, one can be assured that the film is going to be a comedy about romantic interests of the heart. And assuredly, the film is a successful comedy, and as in all such films, one has to overlook the glitches in the storyline, not ask to be convinced about plot sequencing, and just relax and enjoy the fun. Haaye Mera Dil (1968) is production under the banner of Manohar Films, Bombay, directed by apparently a duo of directors Ved-Madan (that is how the name appears in the credits). The music is by Usha Khanna, and the lyrics are shared amongst Anand Bakshi, SH Behari and PL Santoshi. The star line up includes Kishore Kumar, Kumkum, IS Johar, Prem Chopra, Madan Puri, Majnu, Raj Mehra, Lakshmi Chhaayaa.

The storyline is a typical kidnap-child-for-revenge-mother-searching-for-child-villians-captured-happy-ending type of a story. And to make it musical, the kidnapped child grows up to be a dancer. Kumkum plays both the roles of the mother and daughter. Kishore is a lazy unemployed young fellow, who loves this stage dancer in his dreams. IS Johar and Majnu play a team of bumbling detectives who are engaged by the mother to search for her daughter. Prem Chopra was still in the early years of his career, and not yet stereo typed as a villain. In this film he plays the role of Kishore Kumar’s elder brother, concerned about the future and well being of his younger brother. There is a very detailed review of this film available on Memsaab’s blog at Haaye Mera Dil. (The review itself is a delight to read. 🙂 )

The film has six songs in all, and all are wonderful gems. This song is a stage performance by Kumkum. Written by Anand Bakshi and rendered with a lot of zest and energy by Lata Mangeshkar. The performance by Kumkum is worth watching, she comes through as an excellent dancer. Her facial expressions and smile convey that she herself is enjoying the performance, as much as the audience. Sitting in the audience is the starry-eyed Kishore Kumar, who has probably not yet personally met the princess of his dreams. Also present are two characters with bandages on their foreheads. One of them is holding what looks like a photograph in his hands. They are IS Johar and Majnu, the detectives who are trying to trace the missing child. And it seems that with this song, they have found their mark.

The melody of Usha Khanna’s music is no less enchanting than the other stalwarts in the industry. This song has such a beautiful energetic flow to it. And yes, the performance by Kumkum is the icing on the cake. Enjoy this wonderful dance number from Haaye Mera Dil.

machal gayaa haaye mera dil
mere liye huyi mushkil

My heart’s fancy is tickled (for someone)
And this has made life difficult for me

dil ke machalne kaa bas ye anjaam huaa
mein bhi badnaam hui, ye bhi badnaam huaa
gali gali mehfil mehfil, mere liye huyi mushkil

The effect of this fling my heart has taken, is that
My name, my heart has become well known, and notorious everywhere
(the allusion is to ‘gali gali mehfil mehfil’ – every alley, every gathering of friends)
And this has made life difficult for me

koi to baat hui, kuchh to zuroor huaa
pehle kabhi na koi iss se qusoor huaa
jaane kahaan kaun gayaa mil, mere liye huyi mushkil

Something new has happened now,
My heart never misbehaved like this before,
Wonder whom I met who has caused this
And made this life difficult for me

dil ne jo mujh se kahaa, mein bhi wo maan gayee
mera qaraar gayaa, meri to jaan gayee
aise tadap gayaa bismill, mere liye huyi mushkil

I shouldn’t have, but I just went along with what my heart bid me to
I have lost my peace and happiness, my life is on the edge
There is an ache in the wounds of the heart
And this has made life difficult for me


Song-Machal gaya haay mera dil (Haay Mera Dil)(1968) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Usha Khanna

aise tadap gayaa bismil
ho o o o
mere liye huyi mushkil
haaye mera dil

Arun ji,

You just never cease to amaze. Atul ji’s name for you as “our own in house encyclopedia” is very appropriate. 🙂

Thanks for this additional information about the director.
