Saajan se pehli baar ham kaise bolen haay

I had neither heard of the film RISHTA (1954) nor its songs till a few days back. The film was produced under the banner of Rajasthan Productions and directed by Aslam. The star cast included Suresh, Nigar Sultana, S Nazir, Vijaylaxmi, Rammohan, Leela Mishra, Neelam. I could not get anything about the story line or genre of the film on the internet. But from the title, I guess, it was a social film. What interested me to look for the songs from this film was its music director K Datta (Datta Korgaonkar) whose immortal songs from films like ‘Badi Maa (1945) and ‘Daaman’ (1950) had impressed me a lot.

The other day, I had discussed on this blog a song ‘sajan tumse pyaar karoon’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar from the film BADNAAM (1952) which was ‘an expression of love’ song but not knowing how to convey it to her beloved. A somewhat similar genre of song with similar sentiment is also expressed in a song ‘ saajan se pehli baar ham kaise bolen pyaar’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar from the film ‘RISHTA (1954). The song was written by Pandit Phani and set to music by K Datta.

What a melodious song of a confession of love woven in simple lyrics with the divine voice of Lata Mangeshkar! The third stanza of the song is marvellously written– ‘jis aashaa ke hum bhookhey hain jisbhaashaa ke pyaase……..par hamein laaj ki maar’. Alas! We are missing this kind of songs and lyrics in the present dayBollywood films.


Song-Saajan se pehli baar (Rishta)(1954) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Pt Phani, MD-K Datta

Lyrics

saajan se pehli baar
ham kaise bolen haay
hamein aapse pyaar
saajan se pehli baar
ham kaise bolen haay
hamein aapse pyaar

laaj ki maari aankh hamaari
ghoonghat mein chhup jaaye
laaj ki maari aankh hamaari
ghoonghat mein chhup jaaye
baat na man ki munh par aaye
man kitnaa samajhaaye
par khule na munh ke dwaar
hamein aapse pyaar
saajan se pehli baar
ham kaise bolen haay
hamein aapse pyaar

jis aashaa ke ham bhookhe hain
jis bhaashaa ke pyaase
jis aashaa ke ham bhookhe hain
jis bhaashaa ke pyaase
wo saajan ki aankh mein bole
kitne laakh dilaase
par hamein laaj ki maar
hamein aapse pyaar
saajan se pehli baar
ham kaise bolen haay
hamein aapse pyaar
saajan se pehli baar
ham kaise bolen haay
hamein aapse pyaar
