Insaan jee rahaa hai ummeed ke sahaare

Posted on: October 25, 2011

“Ummeed” (1971) is an obscure movie, despite this movie being of relatively recent vintage by the standards of this blog. This movie was a Rajan Films production and it was directed by Nitin Bose. The cast of this movie included names like Ashok Kumar, Nanda,Leela Naidu, Joy Mukherjee, Tuntun, Agha, Leela Misra etc. This movie must have sunk without a trace, because I have not heard of this movie despite this movie getting released when I was at my most alert and curious as a pre teen kid.

The movie and its songs ended up being obscure, but listening to these obscure songs are often a rewarding experience.

Here is a song from this movie. this song is in fact the movie opening song which gets played in the background as titles appear on the screen. This song is sung by Ravi who is also the music director. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist.

With this little known song from an obscure movie, Ravi completes 200 songs in this blog as a music director. This is indeed a nice milestone for an underestimated music director whom I regard as a creator of iconic songs. And it is my privilege to present this 200th song of Ravi in this blog.



Song-Insaan jee rahaa hai ummeed ke sahaare (Ummeed)(1971) Singer-Ravi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni,MD-Ravi


Insaan jee rahaa hai ummeed ke sahaare
har kaam kar rahaa hai ummeed ke sahaare

kuchh gham nahin khizaan ka
aayengi bahaaren bhi
kuchh gham nahin khizaan ka
aayengi bahaaren bhi
gulshan ye kah rahaa hai ummeed ke sahaare
insaan jee rahaa hai ummeed ke sahaare

ho ho ho
himmat na haar raahi
sansaar chal raha hai ummeed ke sahaare
insaan jee rahaa hai ummeed ke sahaare

Corrections please,
If you watch the above video link, it is very clear that, this song was WRITTEN,SUNG & composed by Ravi Himself,music and lyrics of this song is by RAVI and he himself sang this song,
The title sequences of the movie clearly mentions it and it was written as follows:
“Title song written by Music Maestro Ravi
Title song & Piano song sung by Music Maestro Ravi”
