Ham to koi bhi nahin

Posted on: June 18, 2012


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

Prakash ji has written for the second time in ‘Readers Farmaishes’ requesting for the upload of this wonderful sad song in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar. The music composition is by that underrated genius – Ganesh. Prakash ji has mentioned that the song itself is not posted anywhere on the internet. So when I read this comment from Prakash ji, repeating his request for this song, I had to pull this out from my collection, and have posted it on YouTube today.

The song is from film Shararat (1972). The film is produced under the banner of RM Arts, Bombay, and is directed by Manmohan Desai. The music is by Ganesh. The songs are from the pen of three poets, Hasrat Jaipuri, Indeevar and Asad Bhopali. This song is written by Indeevar. The start cast is impressive, and includes Mumtaz, Biswajeet, Shatrughan Sinha, Faryal, Durga Khote, Raj Mehra, Lata Sinha, Madhumati, Mehmood Junior, Kamal Mehra, Neelam, Ram Avtar, Kirti Kumar etc.

The singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar. As Prakash ji has earlier mentioned in his comment, this song is performed by Mumtaz on screen. The notable thing about the music composition is the wonderful use of the violin, to express the intense pain of sorrow that the words represent. The composition is superb and demanding, and the rendition by Lata ji is equally expressive. Prakash ji, thanks for the reminder for this wonderful sad song.

Song-Ham to koi bhi nahin (Sharaarat)(1972) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Ganesh

Lyrics

oonche mahal ka thhaa ik totaa
ik ban ki bholi mayna
lagi bichhadne jab totey se
rotey huye boli mayna

hum to koi bhi nahin
hum ko bhulaa do aise
toote taare ko
bhool jaaye aasmaan jaise
hum to koi bhi nahin
hum ko bhulaa do aise
toote taare ko
bhool jaaye aasmaan jaise
hum to koi bhi nahin

tumhaari chhaaon mein jo
tumhaari chhaaon mein jo
chaar din guzaare hain
wo chaar din bhi hamen
zindagi se pyaare hain
chalen hain dil mein hum
chhupaa ke beeti yaadon ko
chalen hain dil mein hum
chhupaa ke beeti yaadon ko
hum to koi bhi nahin
hum ko bhulaa do aise
toote taare ko
bhool jaaye aasmaan jaise
hum to koi bhi nahin

iraadon mein na dawaa hai
iraadon mein na dawaa hai
na dil mein doori hai
haale dil keh na sakey
ham ko ye majboori hai
kisi tarah se tum bhulaa do
meri baaton ko
kisi tarah se tum bhulaa do
meri baaton ko
hum to koi bhi nahin
hum ko bhulaa do aise
toote taare ko
bhool jaaye aasmaan jaise
hum to koi bhi nahin

Oh my God,
Likhne ke liye mere haath nahin chal rahe hain
shabdon ki kami padh rahe hain.

My Goodness
