Phir aah dil se nikli

Posted on: August 3, 2012


Today (3 august) is the birth anniversary of Shakeel Badayuni (3 august 1916- 20 april 1970). The combination of Shakeel Badayuni as a lyricist as Naushad as a music director was one of the most common and most successful lyricist-music director combinations of the golden era of Hindi movies. They worked together in as many as thirty movies.

Incidentally, he has also worked with a few other music directors, viz Ghulam Mohammad (21 movies), Ravi (15 movies), Hemant Kumar (3 movies), S D Burman (2 movies), C Ramchandra (2 movies),Roshan (2 movies),Sonik Omi (2 movies) and in one movie each for K Narayan Rao, Khurshid Anwar, Shyam Sunder, Khemchand Prakash, Saraswati Devi, Motiram, Khaiyyam, Sardar Malik, Sajjad Hussain, Kalyanji Anandji, Shankar Jaikishan and Laxmikant Pyarelal. It is quite curious in fact to realise that Shakeel Badayuni won three Filmfare awards in consecutive years from 1961 to 1963 and they were all with music directors other than Naushad !

I found out the above mentioned statistics and details from here. And much of the statistics there have been provided by none other than our own Atif M. 🙂

Thanks to Atif M’s painstaking research, now I know that Shakeel Badayuni worked with 20 music directors and worked in as many as 89 movies. Assuming an average of about 7 to 8 songs per movie, it works to a total of about 700 songs. This blog already has 374 songs of Shakeel Badayuni. So more than half of all Shakeel Badayuni songs have already been covered and we are well on our way to cover almost all Shakeel Badayuni songs that are available.

On the occasion of Shakeel Badayuni’s birthday anniversary, here is a song from “Mela” (1948). This song is song by Zohrabai Ambalewaali. The song is a street song and it is sung by a lesser actress whom I am unable to identify, I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. She lip syncs this son as Dilip Kumar is shown going away, deserting Nargis, who tries to put up a brave face and tries to cope up with the situation.

This song, which is written by Shakeel badayuni has been composed by Naushad. The lyrics of this song were sent to me by Atif M, our inhouse Naushad and Shakeel Badayuni expert. 🙂

Song-Phir aah dil se nikli (Mela)(1948) Singer-Zohrabai Ambalewaali, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad

Lyrics(Provided by Atif M)

phir aah dil se nikli
ee ee ee
ee ee ee
tapka lahu jigar se
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
shaayad woh ja rahe hain
chhup kar meri nazar se
chhup kar meri nazar se
chhup kar meri nazar se
chhup kar meri nazar se
chhup kar meri nazar se
shaayad woh ja rahe hain
chhup kar meri nazar

maaloom kya thha dil par
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
ik yeh sitam bhi hoga
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aayenge aur aa kar
phir jaayenge woh darr se
phir jaayenge woh darr se
phir jaayenge woh darr se
phir jaayenge woh darr se
phir jaayenge woh darr se
aayenge aur aa kar
phir jaayenge woh darr

woh jaante to honge
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
woh jaante to honge
majbooriyan hamaari
ee ee ee
ee ee ee
hum jin ko dekhte hain
hasrat bhari nazar se
hasrat bhari nazar se
hasrat bhari nazar se
hasrat bhari nazar se
hasrat bhari nazar se
hum jin ko dekhte hain
hasrat bhari nazar

hum ho gaye paraaye
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa
ab unse waasta kya
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
kehde yeh unse koyi
guzren na woh idhar se
guzren na woh idhar se
guzren na woh idhar se
guzren na woh idhar se
guzren na woh idhar se
kehde yeh unse koyi
guzren na woh idhar se

Shakeelsaab was influenced by his uncle Zia-ul-Qadiri Badayuni, he was a shayar.
His father Qadiri Mohammed Jamaal Ahmad Sokhta used to give him lessons at home to write in Arabic, Urdu, Persian and Hindi.
He wrote nice qawwali for several films.
This is a form of qawwali too.
First preamble verses which are typically not part of the main song…a prelude follow by aalaap…therefore it’s qawwali.
Rest In Eternal Peace Shakeel saab.

You said it rightly that the first two lines are not part of the main song. That may be the reason as to why many of us in our younger days knew this song as ‘shaayad woh jaa rahe hain’

The above is written as a ghazal even if it is sung in qawwali form.
