Tum ho saath raat bhi haseen hai

Posted on: January 21, 2012


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

“Jism ko maut aati hain lekin, ruh ko maut aati nahin hain”. These are lines in the song “Kaun hai jo sapno main aayaa” from film “Jhuk Gayaa Aasmaan “(1968), which can be applied to many Hindi films, especially of golden era of Hindi film songs which ‘died’ in no time as soon as they were released. But many of songs from such films remained immortal.

Madan Mohan was one of the music directors who had the misfortune of associating with some of such films. The film Mohar (1959) was no exception and it vanished from the scene in no time as soon as it was released. All the songs from this film which we have access to listen thanks to some internet sites are melodious.

This blog has already discussed two songs from Mohar. I was surprised to find that the song “tum ho saat raat bhi haseen hai” from this film has not yet been discussed. It is one of the comparatively well known songs and the starting music of this song was the signature tune of one of Radio Ceylon’s programme ( I think, it was Meri Pasand) that I used to hear during 60’s and 70’s. Lata’s voice truly reflects the emotion embodied in the poetry of Rajinder Krishan and in the composition of Madan Mohan. Two lines “jo maut mujhko tere haath se mile, woh maut zindagi se kam nahin hai ” sum up the ultimate in the expression of love. The film had Shammi Kapoor and Geeta Bali as the lead actors. I guess,this song was picturised on Geeta Bali. As often happens with many of such films, only the audio clip is available for this song.

This is one of those songs which gives credence to Lata Mangeshkar being called as nightingale of India and for me Madan Mohan was the king of melodies.


Song-Tum ho saath raat bhi haseen hai (Mohar)(1959) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

tum ho saath
raat bhi haseen hai
ab to maut kaa bhi gham nahin hai
tum ho saath
raat bhi haseen hai
ab to maut kaa bhi gham nahin hai

chaand jaantaa nahin ye daastaan
kis taraf chalaa hai meraa kaarvaan
aan
chaand jaantaa nahin ye daastaan
kis taraf chalaa hai meraa kaarvaan
phir kabhi na saath honge ham yahaan
chaand ko to ye khabar nahin hai
tum ho saath
raat bhi haseen hai
ab to maut kaa bhi gham nahin hai
ae ae ae

kitnaa khushnaseeb meraa pyaar hai
mere saamne meri bahaar hai
kitnaa khushnaseeb meraa pyaar hai
mere saamne meri bahaar hai
teri har adaa se mujh ko pyaar hai
aaj mujh ko koyee gham nahin hai
tum ho saath
raat bhi haseen hai
ab to maut kaa bhi gham nahin hai

aaj phool mere pyaar ke khile
ab na hain shiqaayaten na hain gile
aaj phool mere pyaar ke khile
ab na hain shiqaayaten na hain gile
jo maut mujhko tere haath se mile
woh maut zindagi se kam nahin hai
tum ho saath
raat bhi haseen hai
ab to maut kaa bhi gham nahin hai
