Dekhoon kab tak teri main raah sajnaa

Posted on: November 20, 2011


“Ilzaam” (1954) is a surprisingly obscure movie. This movie was a Talwar Films production. It was directed by R C Talwar. The movie had Kishore Kumar, Meena Kumari, Shammi, Jagdish Sethi etc in it.

Here is a superb song from this movie which I heard for the first time only just now. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

The music, though nearly six decades old sound surprisingly new. I in fact feel that the music of “Veera Zaara” (2003) which utilised unused tunes of Madan Mohan may have drawn from unused music of movies such as “Ilzaam” (1954) etc. The tune of this song vaguely reminds me of a song from “Veer Zaara” (2003) though I could be entirely off the mark.

This forgotten song from a forgotten movie is wonderful to listen to. Its video is not available on YT as of now, though there is one upload that uses picturisation of some other movie. People who are unawre of the cast of this movie could well be fooled by that video since that upload does not have a disclaimer either.

Since I know the cast of the movie and I do not like misleading videos, so here is just the audio of this song.

Lyrics

bujhne lagi hai shama
tere intezaar ki
ab aa bhi jaa
ke toot chale
aas pyaar ki

dekhoon kab tak teri main raah sajnaa
dekhoon kab tak teri main raah sajna
teri raah sajnaa
teri raah sajnaa
teri raah sajnaa
teri raah sajnaa
dekhoon kab tak teri main raah sajna
dekhoon kab tak teri main raah sajna

chaand taaron ki baaraat jaane lagi
chaand taaron ki baaraat jaane lagi
ab to aa jaa piyaa
raat jaane lagi
raat jaane lagi
tujhe dhoondhe hai meri nigaah sajnaa
tujhe dhoondhe hai meri nigaah sajnaa
dekhoon kab tak teri main raah sajnaa

phool shaakhon pe aaraam se so gaye
phool shaakhon pe aaraam se so gaye
tum na jaane na jaane kahaan kho gaye
kahaan kho gaye
mujhko sone na de teri pyaas sajna
mujhko sone na de teri pyaas sajna
dekhoon kab tak teri main raah sajnaa
teri raah sajnaa
teri raah sajnaa
dekhoon kab tak teri main raah sajna
