Ek baat poochhoon

Posted on: June 30, 2012

I am familiar with a movie called “Kathputli”(1957). But it turns out that there was another movie of the same name in 1971 too.

“Kathputli” (1971) was a Dynamo International Production. It was produced and directed by Brij. The movie had Jeetendra, Mumtaz, Mallika, Helen, Pran, Jalal Agha, Agha, Manmohan, Leela Mishra, Ashachandra, Dilip Dutt, Fazlu, Master Bhagwan, Kumud Tripathi, Harbans Darshan, M.Arora, Praveen Paul, Rajrani, Kundan, Radheshyam, Jerry etc in it.

The movie has been forgotten with time alongwith its songs.

Here is a duet song from this movie. It is sung by Rafi and Lata and it is picturised on Jeetendra and Mumtaz. This “question-answer” song is in fact also a “proposal” song. Shadaab is the lyricist of this song, and he, alongwith this movie, makes his debut in the blog. I wonder why he did not get more opportunities to write lyrics in Hindi movies. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie as well as on Shadaab.

Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. On the occasion of Kalyanji’s birth anniversary (30 june), here is this nice song which I recall having heard those days before forgetting all about this song. It is a nice feelibg to be re acquinted with this song once again after four decades.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.



Song-Ek baat poochhoon (Kathputli)(1971) Singers-Rafi, Lata, Lyrics-Shadaab, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

ek baat poochhoon
dil ki baat poochoon
haan poochho
dil ki hai ye baat
katen din raat
tumhaare saath
bolo bolo
kya khayaal hai
ek baat keh doon
keh do
dil ki baat keh doon
haan keh do
mushkil hai iqraar
hamaara pyaar
to hai dushwaar
bolo bolo
kya khayaal hai

tujhe dekhe binaa
mera dil nahin maane
meri jaan badi majboori hai
jab dil ki huyee hai aisi haalat
tere pyaar ka waadaa zaroori hai
keh do haan keh do arre haan keh do
ek baat keh doon
keh do
dil ki baat keh doon
haan keh do
dil ki hai ye baat
ke ye jazbaat
kyaa denge saath
bolo bolo
kya khayaal hai

jab pyaar kissise hone lage
izhaar bahut hi mushkil hai
izhaar bhi koyee karne lage
iqraar bahut hi mushkil hai
maano haan maano
haan maano meri baat

ek baat poochoon
dil ki baat poochhoon
haan poocho
marne se badnaam
ji hoga naam
tumhaaraa naam
bolo bolo
kyaa khayaal hai

tere poochhe binaa
hum to tere ho gaye
ye keh do hamein kyaa karnaa hai
tera pyaar milegaa to
hai ye jeenaa
nakaam rahaa to marnaa hai
keh do haan keh do
arre haan keh do

ek baat keh doon
keh do
dil ki baat keh doon
haan keh do
sun lo jee ye baat
rahenge saath
sadaa din raat
bolo bolo
kyaa khayaal hai
ho bolo bolo
kyaa khayaal hai

Almost didn’t want to listen…but for Rafi/Lata…I did…
what a “dilchasp” song.
I know I will come back to listen again to get some uplifting and sweet feeling moments.
