Ye dil sun raha hai tere dil ki zubaan

Posted on: July 12, 2012


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

This song is from the Film Khaamoshi – The Musical. This is a comparatively new film for this blog. But since I like the songs of this film too much, I want to discuss this song first. The singer is Kavita Krishnamoorthy and the music director is the duo of Jatin-Lalit. Jatin-Lalit may not be the most original music directors of the 90’s but they brought a freshness to Hindi film music which had lost all appeal during the 80’s.

The songs of 80’s were mostly utilized by the theater going crowd as bathroom break etc. There were very few melodious and memorable songs. Then things began to change in the 90’s with the advent of A. R. Rehman and music was back to being the major factor in drawing the crowds to theaters and song picturizations also were a vast improvement from the previous decade. This movie was the first of many beautiful films made by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the director of the film. The main actors were Nana Patekar, Seema Biswas, Salman Khan, Manisha Koirala, Raghuvir Yadav and Helen.

The song which I am presenting has all the main actors except Helen in the picturization. It tells a story and it is not a story telling song. The story is about Annie(Manisha), whose parents Nana Patekar and Seema Biswas are deaf and dumb. Annie has inherited a love of music and all things musical from her grandmother Marriamma(Helen). Being the only person who can hear and speak in the household after the death of Marriamma and Sam, her young brother, Annie is the only voice and communicator. Though there is a lot of love in their rambling old house by the sea, this goan family is struggling to make ends meet. Then Annie meets Raj, a musician from Bombay, things begin to change and they fall in love. Annie is feeling the tug of the outside world unknown to her before this. Her parents who mean the world to her are also insecure because the daughter they are dependent on, in more ways than one, is changing, forming new bonds which may take her away from them.

Coming back to the song, it is being recorded in a studio, when Raj finally persuades Annie to sing for him. As Annie is singing those words ‘yeh dil sun rahaa hai, tere dil ki zubaan’, Raj is under the impression that she is singing for him. When Annie’s parents arrive at the recording studio she begins to express the words in sign language. Raj is than able to fully appreciate the bond of the daughter with her parents.

The film was aptly named “Khaamoshi – The Musical”, at least the CD cover said so. In my opinion it was the finest film about disabled persons, better than even “Children of a lesser God”. This film did not do well commercially and was also ignored by Awards juries, despite having such fine performances by all the actors. There were quite a few unforgettable scenes in the film, which have made me a fan of Salman Khan and Manisha Koirala. Salman Khan has got his name, fame and a huge fan following 15 years down the line. But Manisha Koirala has all but disappeared from the scene. At the time she made her debut with Subhash Ghai’s ‘Saudagar’ she was touted as the most beautiful face since Madhubala and some such things. All the top film makers of the time cast her in their films. Her influential family background and connections may or may not have been responsible for her getting such rave reviews. But for me she was the one who looked most beautiful on the big screen, among all the actresses in the 90’s.

Last but not the least, let me mention that the simple lyrics of this song are written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Thanks Nahm ji for posting my favourite singer`s song. This is the first song of that movie that made a strong impression on my psyche,at that time. Whenever I listen to this, I get emotional.

Nice post.
Heart touching lyrics by Majrooh ji. While reading the lyrics I just remembered MAJROOH ji`s lines from “Dastak”:
“Majrooh likh rahe hain wo ahal-e-wafaa kaa naam”

This film was the comeback film of Helen after she married Salim, father of Salmaan Khan. Their love story is more facinating than any which Salim himself or Javed could write, I wish Arun ji Deshmukh could narrate it for us to record it in this blog forever and for generations to read and learn what true love is all about.
