Chale jaa rahe hain mohabbat ke maare

Posted on: December 4, 2011

Dev Anand, who left for heavenly abode yesterday (3th december 2011) in London, was a legend among legends in the annals of Indian movie industry. He started his career in 1940s as an actor and quickly went on to become one of the big three heroes of 1950s, other two being Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar. Dev Anand typically played suave, urban, dashing and stylish characters in his movies. He got his first break in Prabhat theatre’s “Hum Ek Hain” (1946). He got his big break in “Ziddi” (1948) and that enabled him to get a foothold in the industry. Soon, he set up his own production house, viz Navketan too.

Dev Anand often produced movies that became trendsetters. For example, his “Baazi” (1951) set the trend of crime thrillers in Hindi movies and this trend lasted the entire decade.

To my mind, Dev Anand’s acting career can be divided into three phases- first phase was from 1940s to 1960s, when he acted opposite actresses of his generation. Second phase was when he acted opposite actresses of the next generation. And the third phase was when he acted opposite actresses who were two generations younger than him.

“Kinaare Kinaare” (1963) is by now an obscure movie. This movie was produced by Nyay Sharma and directed by Chetan Anand. The movie had Dev Anand, Chetan Anand, Meena Kumari, Madhoo, Ravikant, B. S. Thapa, Kammo, Sukhdev, Sunder, etc. The movie failed at the box office.

Here is this rare song from this obscure movie called “Kinaare Kinaare”(1963) which is picturised on Dev Anand, with Meena Kumari and Chetan Anand also visible in the picturisation. This song is sung by Manna Dey. Nyay Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Jaidev.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Mrs Bhatt.



Song-Chale jaa rahe hain mohabbat ke maare (Kinaare Kinaare)(1963) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Nyay Sharma, MD-Jaidev

Lyrics(Provided by Khyati Bhatt)

chale ja rahe hain mohabbat ke maare
kinare kinare
kinare kinare
chale ja rahe hain mohabbat ke maare
kinaare kinaare
kinaare kinaare
chale ja rahe hain

na saahil ki parwaah na toofaan ka darr hai
na zulmon ka shiqwa
na gam ka asar hai
na saahil ki parwaah
na toofan ka dar hai
na zulmo ka shiqwa
na gam ka asar hai
umeedon ke bal par
dilon ke sahaare
chale ja rahe hain
kinaare kinaare
chale ja rahe hain

tammana yahee hai ke lahron se khelen
naseebon ki gardish ko hans hans ke jhelen
tammana yahee hai ke lahron se khelen
naseebon ki gardish ko hans hans ke jhelen
umangon ki raah mein bichhaakar sitaare
chale ja rahe hain kinaare kinaare
chale ja rahe hain

Ah, I just knew that there had to be something about this movie! I saw this on the Wikipedia article of Dev’s filmography, but I couldn’t find anything about it. Thanks for sharing, Atul!


I am also in shock after hearing about Dev Saab passing away! i thought he was immortal, he was always there, with his head tilted a little, his hair in that carefully styled puff, his long sleeved shirts, his almost awkward gait, that cigarette dangling from his lips in earlier movies, the scarf knotted at his neck, and that smile of his – oooh, so good looking, and he always had great songs! I think I have mentioned this before, my favorite uncle used to dress like him and looked a little like him, and he too passed away very suddenly, and he was very young, just 68 years old, in comparison. Well, now hero and fan can meet up there and exchange stories. each with his own twinkling smile and unique way of talking!


excuse me,but he was 88 yrs.


What Lalitha means was that her uncle was 68.


got it right now.sorry !


as Lalithaji says
you feel that some people can never die. they will always be there. eternal like Hanuman who was given the boon of long life or Bheeshma who had the boon that he could choose when he left the world


My thoughts too have been somewhat like Lalitha ji’s. We all thought he is immortal. I feel that he truly believed in his own immortality and invincibility. It showed in his conduct in his working life and style. I managed to see only one T. V. news programme on him today, the reactions and tributes were full of this facet of his personality.

But i guess, like he was ended a number of scene’s in his films, it is curtains for him too with “Khuda haafiz”.


Nice song by Sri. Mannade. Old is Gold.


“other two being Raj Kapoor and Dev Anand.”
should be “other two being Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar”.
