Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Ye pyaar thhaa ya kuchch aur thhaa

Posted on: June 2, 2012

Raj Kapoor (14 December 1924 – 2 June 1988) departed for the heavenly abode this day twentyfour years ago.

This blog has several songs picturised on Raj Kapoor. Here is a song which is not picturised on him, but it is a song whose picturisation was directed by him.

This song is from “Prem Rog” (1982). This song is picturised as a mujra song on Asha Sachdev and others, who perform on the occasion of a Padmini Kolhapure’s wedding. The picturisation shows lots of actors, viz. Asha Sachdev, Rishi Kapoor, Padmini Kolhapure, Vijayendra Ghatge,Kiran Vairale, Kulbhushan Kharbandha, Shammi Kapoor, Raza Murad, Monty Nath, Sushma Seth, Nanda, Praveen Paul etc.

The song is sung by Sudha Malhotra, with the last stanza being sung by Anwar. It was a pleasant surprise to hear the voice of Sudha Malhotra in a movie song after nearly two decades. This song remains the last song as a playback singer for Sudha Malhotra, if I remember correctly.

Santosh Anand has excelled in writing the lyrics of this song. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra. Prakashchandra informs me that the video of the song excludes portion of the song. I have not been able to locate the full audio, but I have provided the longest video of the song that I could locate.

On the occasion of Raj Kapoor’s death anniversary, here is this wonderful song from “Prem Rog” (1982).



Song-Ye pyaar thhaa ya kuchch aur thhaa (Prem Rog)(1982) Singers-Sudha Malhotra, Anwar, Lyrics-Santosh Anand, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

nikal ke unke dil se hum
sare mehfil
mein aa baithe
hamaari mushkil ye hai ke ae
badi mushkil mein aa baithe
jo milte rehte hain
woh dil mein samaa jaate hain aen
jo milke nahin milte
woh yaad
bahut yaad aate hain

ye pyaar thha
ye pyaar thha
ya kuchch aur thhaa
ye pyaar thha
ye pyaar thha
ya kuchch aur thhaa
na tujhe pataa
na mujhe pataa
ye pyaar thha
ye pyaar thha
ya kuchch aur thhaa
na tujhe pata,
na mujhe pataa
ye nigaahon ka hi qusoor thha
ye nigaahon ka hi qusoor thha
na teri khataa,
na meri khataa
ye pyaar thhaa
ya kuchch aur thha
ye pyaar thhaa

na to apnaa tujhko banaa sake
na tho apnaa tujhko banaa sake
na hi door tujhse
jaa sake
kahin kuchch na kuchch tho zuroor thaa…….aaaaaaaaa
kahin kuchch na kuchch tho zuroor tha
na tujhe pataa na mujhe pataa
ye pyaar thaa ya kuchch aur thaa
ye pyaar thaaaa

tere sukh ki sej sajee rahe
tere sukh ki sej sajee rahe
meri umr bhi tujhe jaa lage
main duaaayein dene mein
dene mein
main duaaayein dene mein
chhoor thha
na tujhe pataa
na mujhe pataa
ye pyaar thhaa
ya kuchch aur thha
ye pyaar thha
ya kuchch aur thha
na tujhe pataa
na mujhe pataa
ye nigaahon ka hi qusoor thhaa
ye nigaahon ka hi qusoor thhaa
na teri khataa
na meri khataa
ye pyaar thaa
yaa kuchch aur thaa

ho o o
o o o
saari khushiyaan tujhpe waar ke
saari khushiyaan tujhpe waar ke
chalaa main to sab kuchch haar ke
yehi ishq kaa dastoor thha
na tujhe pataa,
na mujhe pataa
ye pyaar thha
ya kuchch aur thhaa

Anwar Hussain and many other new comer has very good voice But the voice of Md. Rafi saab will never be replicated, duplicated or imitated exactly..
Sudhaji, a classical singer and has earn degree in music.
of course she can tackle any song. Her patho will rest on classical notes, regardless of the situation in the film.
Last I saw this movie, it was in 1982 and I have forgotten all the songs.
I will refresh again…and might watch movie too 🙂


Thanks for the posting.
“Main bahut dinon se iss gaane ko blog mein dekhne ke liye utsuk tha”
Sudha ji singing, gaane ke bol, Ace director Raj ji ka direction and the heart touching story. Wow!!(Rishi aur Asha Sachdev ke expressions)

Sudha ji apne radio intereview mein keh rahi thi ke:
Raj ji ne bahut zid karwaake iss gaane ke liye Sudha ji hi chaahiye kehke, unnse iss gaane ka recording karwaayaa tha(unn dinon Sudha ji ne ,already filmon ke liye gaanaa band kiyaa tha)
Film bahut lambi bani thi, issee liye iss gaane ka ek antare ko kaat diyaa gayaa tha.(Nuksaan tho meraa thaa, kyon ke 1st antre ka bol bahut sundar hai) According to me,Raj kapoor ji ka direction tho iss film mein lajawaab tha, Kaash pooraa gaane ko film mein jod diyaa hotaa”

Thanks Again


I want one clarification and confirmation about:
Kya Singer Anwar actress Asha Sachdev ke bhai hai?????


From his Wiki Page:

Very few people know that Anwar is step brother of Arshad Warsi and noted actress of her time Asha Sachdev.

From his own website:

Being an only son, my father wanted me to follow his footsteps and learn violin.


Even Rani Mukherjee is in someway related to these people. I have read that she is related to Arshad Warsi and Asha Sachdev.



Are you in touch with your step brother Arshad Warsi and sister Asha Sachdev?
My own mother Ranjana Sachdev has made sure that Asha doesn’t remain in touch with me.. although Asha has nothing against me. As far as Arshad is concerned, yes he is my stepbrother but we are not in touch.


Thank you bluefire ji and nahm ji for the information about asha sachdev and anwar


could you please provide english translation to this awesome song ?
thanks in advance
