Zidd na karo ab to ruko

Posted on: January 10, 2012


“Lahu Ke Do Rang” (1979) is one of those movie that I have actually seen when it was first released. The movie had Vinod Khanna (double role), Shabana Azmi, Danny, Helen (as supporting actress), etc.

A couple of songs from this movie became quite popular. I have already discussed those songs, viz. Chhahiye thoda pyaar, Maathe ki bindiya boley and Muskuraata hua gul khilaata hua mera yaar

I do not recall the other songs of this movie. It turns out that this movie had a multiple version song that had a male version (sung by Yesudas) and a female version (sung by Lata). Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Khyati Bhatt on the occasion of the birthday of Yesudas (10th januray). What a fantastic song it is !

Here is this forgotten gem from “Lahu Ke Do Rang” (1979). I do not remember about the picturisation of this song and I request our less forgetful readers to tell us about the picturisation of the two versions of this song. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. This superb music is composed by , believe it or not- Bappi Lahiri ! Those wer the Pre Disco days of Bappi Lahiri and I used to regard him as the heir apparent of R D Burman. What really happened soon thereafter was of course much different, but a song like this testifies to the fact that Bappi Lahiri couple come up with gems if he put his mind to it. And this song (both versions of it) must be regarded as priceless gems that need to be treasured.

Male version-Yesudas

Female version-Lata

Song-Zidd na karo ab to ruko (Lahu Ke Do Rang)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Lyrics-Farooque Kaiser, MD-Bappi Lahiri

zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi
mana agar kahena mera
tumko wafa aa jayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi

aa aaa aa
aa aa
sajda karoon
pooja karoon
toohi bata
kya karoon
sajda karoon
pooja karoon
toohi bata
kya karoon
lagta hai yeh
teri nazar
mera dharam le jaayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi
zid na karo ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi
mana agar
kehna mera
tumko wafa aa jayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi

rut bhi agan
tapta badan
badhne lagi bekhudi
rut bhi agan
tapta badan
badhne lagi bekhudi
ab jo gaye
saari umar
dil mein kasak reh jaayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi
mana agar kehna mera
tumko wafa aa jayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi

Female Version-Lata

zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi
maana agar kehna mera
tumko wafa aa jaayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
tanhaayi hai
aur tu bhi hai
chaaha wohi mil gaya
aa aa
tanhaayi hai
aur tu bhi hai
chaaha wohi mil gaya
aa
lag ja gale
khooshboo teri
tan man mera mehkaayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi
maana agar kehna mera
tumko wafa aa jayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi

sajna mere
chunri zara
mukh pe mere daal do
sajna mere
chunri zara
mukh pe mere daal do
dekha agar khul ke toone
tumko nazar lag jaayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi
maana agar kehna mera
tumko wafa aa jayegi
zid na karo
ab to ruko
yeh raat nahin aayegi
