Dhal chuki shaam e gham

Posted on: February 29, 2012


I am coming round to the view that the popular category of songs, viz “How come this soong was not posted earlier” contains not just hundreds, but thousands of songs. There are so many great songs that have not yet figured in the blog, despite this blog boasting of over 5500 songs.

I have discussed as many as seven songs (all iconic songs) from “Kohinoor” (1960). Under normal circumstances, one should rest on one’s laurels, thinking that all great songs from the movie have been discussed, but that is hardly the case. Despite discussing so many great songs from this movie, a few great songs still remain undiscussed.

Here is this iconic song from “Kohinoor” (1960) namely “dhal chuki shaam e gham”. I know, I know, but I have given my explanation already 🙂 . How was I to know that a movie can have more than seven great songs in it. In fact, now I know my job is not over even after discussing this song. There is at least one more iconic song still left !

Here is this memorable song. It is a raj darbaar song where Dilip Kumar is seen singing this song while a dancer (who is she) gives a dance performance. Is it Kathak, or is it Bharat Natyam. M y inability to recognise old time actresses compares well with my inability to be able to identify various dance forms. So I request our knowledgeable readers to help us.

Rafi is the singer. Shakeel Badayuni is the music director and music is composed by Naushad.


Song-Dhal chuki shaam e gham (Kohinoor)(1960) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

Dhal chuki shaam-e-gham
muskuraa le sanam
ik nayi subah duniyaa mein aane ko hai
pyaar sajne lagaa
saaj bajne lagaa
zindagi dil ke taaron pe gaane ko hai
dhal chuki shaam-e-gham
muskuraa le sanam

aaj paayal bhi hai
naghmaa-e-dil bhi hai
rang-e-ulfat bahaaron mein shaamil bhi hai
aaj paayal bhi hai
aaj paayal bhi hai
naghmaa-e-dil bhi hai
rang-e-ulfat bahaaron mein shaamil bhi hai
aa gayi hai milan ki suhaani ghadi
waqt ki taal par naachti hai khushi
naachti hai khushi

ghunghruon ki sadaa rang laane ko hai
dhal chuki shaam-e-gham
muskuraa le sanam
ik nayi subah duniyaa mein aane ko hai

jhoomte aa rahe hain zamaane naye
hasraten gaa rahi hain taraane naye
jhoomte aa rahe hain zamaane naye
hasraten gaa rahi hain taraane naye
aaj dil ki tamannaa nikal jaayegi
geet hogaa yahi
lay badal jaayegi
lay badal jaayegi

ik nayaa raag qismat sunaane ko hai
pyaar sajne lagaa
saaj bajne lagaa
zindagi dil ke taaron pe gaane ko hai
dhal chuki shaam-e-gham
muskuraa le sanam

The dancer is Kumkum. As for the dance form, I don’t blame you for your confusion! Kumkum certainly has put on an attire of a Bharatanatyam artiste but the dance is Kathak. Kumkum was a very graceful and talented Kathak dancer.
