Bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin

Posted on: May 22, 2012


Most mujra songs in Hindi movies are rather “light” in nature in the sense that the clients as well as the mujra performers seem to be at ease with themselves. In reality, performing mujra as well as going to kotha to watch these performances was regarded as disreputable acts.

The lyrics of most mujras are mostly silent about the fact that perfomers and watchers of mujra are looked down upon by society. Here is a mujra that is an exception. The lyrics of this mujra are as hard hitting as it can be. The picturisation shows Jayshree singing this mujra (singing, and not dancing). The words are extremely hard hitting as the lyrics discuss the bitter home truths that are mostly swept under the carpet. It talks of the hypocrisy of males who make their wives suffer at home but shower goodies on mujra performers at kothas. The lyrics also hold the male of the species responsible for the existence of this profession since males have created the demand and requirement for kothas and mujras. The clients, instead of getting “entertained” find themselves facing a barrage of uncomfortable facts about themselves.

This different kind of a mujra is sung by Lata. Ravi is the music director. One may think that the lyricist is Sahir Ludhianvi, but no, it is Kamil Rashid, a lesser known lyricist for most music lovers, including me.

Here is this hard hitting mujra from “Mehandi” (1958) which I heard for the first time only just now.

PS-I have been informed that this song has a second part as well. Thus it is a multiple version song.

Lyrics

bhari mehfil hai
aur ab rang par
mehfil bhi aayi hai
uthhi hai hooq bhi dil se
to dil hi mein dabaayi hai
magar jab dil dukhaayaa hai
to lab tak baat aayi hai
aji kisne dil dukhaaya hai

ye afsaanaa nahin
ae sunanewaalon
dil ki baaten hain
siyaahi gham ki hai waise
badi rangeen raaten hain
ye afsaana nahin hai

wallah
bilkul sahi naksah kheench daala hai ??

hai gustaakhi magar kehnaa hai kuchh duniyaa se,
mardon se
farmaaiye
shareefon
manachalon
mullaaon se
aawaaraagardon se
hai bepardaa
magar taane
diye jaate hain pardon se
ye afsaana nahin hai
sahi hai
ishaare aur taane dono pardon hi se huaa karte hain
waah waah
waah waah

ye jo kothe ki mallika hai
ye jo koocho ki raani hai
jo padh sakte ho padh lo
ye tumhaari hi kahaani hai
samaaj-o-kaum ki
be-aabrooyi ki nishaani hai
ye afsaana nahin hai
bahut achche
bahut achche

jo sach poochho
tumhi mardon ne
ye kothe sajaaye hain
haseen baazaar tumne
apne haathon se lagaaye hain
tumhaari hi badaulat
ham bhi is mehfil mein aaye hain
bhai wallah
kyaa baat kahin hai
aa haa haa

ye afsaana nahin hai

tum apni biwiyon ko chhodkar
kothon pe jaate ho
maine kaha agha sahab munshi sahab
mulaahija farmaaiye
aa haa

tum apni biwiyon ko chhodkar
kothon pe jaate ho
tum apne ghar ki daulat ko
wahaan jaaker lutaate ho
Ae
Lotan sahab

khushaamadi naazobardaari pe
tum jooti bhi khaate ho
sun rahe ho Lotan sahab
haan magar abhi tak baal salaamat hain apne sar par

khushaamadi naazobardaari pe tum jooti bhi khaate ho
ye afsaana nahin hai

Kyaa ?? kahi hai
wallah bahut umda hai jee haan
waah

jo samjho thaap tabley ki
to ye munh par tamaache hain
jo samjho thaap tabley ki
to ye munh par tamaache hain
ye saarangi ke taaron par
dilon ke taar bajte hain
yahaan insaaniyat khud naachti hai
ham nachaate hain
ham nachaate hai
waah waah
waah waah kyaa misra hai

ye afsaana nahin hai
Agha Sahab
tamaache aur joote to ab sabhi kuch pad chuke
ab kya baaqi raha hai

jawaab baaqi raha hai sawaal ka
he he
farmaiye

arrey o zindagi ke Thekedaaron kuchh to sharmaao
Lahaul wila quwwat
uthaakar husn ka bazaar apne ghar mein le jaao
arrey o zindagi ke thekedaaron
kuchh to sharmaao
uthaakar husn ka bazaar
apne ghar mein le jaao
Lahaul wila quwwat
aji aap kya keh rahi hain

sahaara do
sahaara do aur inko
maa behen beti kehalwaao
sahaara do
sahaara do aur inko
maa behen beti kehalwaao
ye afsaana nahin hai
ye afsaana nahin
ae sunanewaalon
dil ki baaten hain
siyaahi gham ki hai waise
badi rangeen raaten hain
ye afsaana nahin hai

Atul ji,
This is not a Mujara song.It is a Mushayara song.
The film has this Mushayara going on in which first there is a song by Mohd.Rafi – Part 1,which is ‘ Wo aj apni mehfil mein aaye hue hain’.
After this as a reply,Lata song Part 2 is the above one.
-AD
