Pukaarti hai muhabbat kareeb aa jaao

Posted on: March 19, 2012

I am aware of the movie “Laila Majnu” (1976) but I was not aware that a movie called “Daastaan e Laila Majnu” was released two years prior to that. This movie, viz. “Daastaan e Laila Majnu” (1974) was obviously a B grade movie.It was produced and directed by R L Desai. Starcast of the movie included names like Kanwaljeet, Anamika, B. M. Vyas, Dulari, Jayshree T., S. N. Tripathi, K. N. Singh, etc.

The movie was B grade, so it must mean that the song was A grade, even if few people may have heard the songs of this movie.

Here is a song from this movie which I heard for the first time only just now. What a wonderful song it is ! The song is sung by Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur. The song is written by Jaan Nisaar Akhtar and music is composed by Iqbal Qureshi.

I am not sure about the actors on whom this song is picturised though I guess them to be Kanwaljeet and Anamika. Instead of relying on my dodgy identification, I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them once and for all.

The lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.

Song-Pukaarti hai muhabbat kareeb aa jaao (Daastaan e Laila Majnu)(1974) Singers-Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-Iqbal Qureshi

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

pukaarti hai muhabbat
ho o o o
pukaarti hai muhabbat
kareeb aa jaao
kareeb aa jaao
tumhi toh ho meri jannat
o o o o
tumhi toh ho meri jannat
kareeb aa jaao
kareeb aa jaao

jidhar nigaah uthhe
hans rahi ho phoolon mein
tumhi toh jhool rahi ho
kiran ke jhoolon mein
nazar ko hosh nahin
dilnasheen nazaaron kaa
alag wazood nahin
tumse chaand taaron kaa

ho o o o
baraste husn ki soorat
kareeb aa jaao
tumhi toh ho meri jannat
o o o o
tumhi toh ho meri jannat
kareeb aa jaao
kareeb aa jaao

yeh pyaar jispe
farishton ko rashq aataa hai
khudha bhi ham pe
muhabbat se muskuraata hai

dilon ka mel
ibaadat hai
kaun jaanegaa
yahi toh asl haqeeqat hai
kaun maanegaa
ho o o o
hamaara ishqa salaamat
kareeb aa jaao

pukaarti hai muhabbat
ho o o o
pukaarti hai muhabbat
kareeb aa jaao
kareeb aa jaao
kareeb aa jaao
kareeb aa jaao
