Jin raaton ki bhor nahin hai

Posted on: August 4, 2012


As a human being, Kishore Kumar was quite a study in contrast. He was mainly known by his ability to bring a smile, if not whole hearted laughter in people’s mind. His joie de vivre was infectious with his fellow artists. If Kishore Kumar acted opposite actresses now known for playing tragedy roles (viz Nutan and Meena Kumari), then you can bet that the resultant movie would be a light hearted comedy, and not a serious melancholic stuff.

When Kishore Kumar began to make movies himself, his first two movies, viz “Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi” (1958) and “Jhumru” (1961) were light hearted stuff. But all his subsequent movies were sensitive movies that looked into serious topics. There movies were labour of love for Kishore Kumar. Unfortunately, majority of movie goers were not mature and sensitive enough to appreciate such movies. Asa result, these serious movies produced by Kishore Kumar failed at the box office.

These movies may have failed to do well at the box office, but the music of these movies was timeless and such music continues to remain popular with music lovers.

“Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein” (1964) was the first serious movie produced by Kishore Kumar. This movie deals with the trials and tribulations of an ex army official (played by Kishore Kumar) who has a deaf and dumb son (played by Amit Kumar, his real life son) to attend to.

This movie had songs that did not do well at the Binaca geetmala, but these songs were meant for classes not the masses and these songs have become incresingly popular as time has passed.

As many as five songs from this movie have already been discussed in the past. On the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s birth anniversary (4 august), here the sixth song from “Door Gagan Ki Chhaaon Mein” (1964). The song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Shailendra is the lyricist. Kishore Kumar is the music director too.

This song is a background song and it is picturised on Supriya Devi who plays Kishore Kumar’s wife in the movie.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.

Song-Jin raaton ki bhor nahin hai (Door Gagan Ki Chhaaon Mein)(1964) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Kishore Kumar

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

jin raaton ki bhor nahin hai
aaj aisi hi raat aayi ee
jin raaton ki bhor nahin hai
aaj aisi hi raat aayi ee
bojh se gham ki doob gayaa dil
saagar ki hai gehraayi

raat ke taaron tum hi bataa do
meri woh manzil hai kahaan aan
raat ke taaron tum hi bataa do
meri woh manzil hai kahaan
paagal ban kar jiske liye main
kho baithha hoon dono jahaan
paagal ban kar jiske liye main
kho baitha hoon dono jahaan aan
paagal ban kar jiske liye main
kho baitha hoon dono jahaan aan
jin raaton ki bhor nahin hai
aaj aisi hi raat aayi

raah kisi ki huyi naa roshan
jalnaa mera bekaar gayaa aa
raah kisi ki huyi naa roshan
jalnaa mera bekaar gayaa
loot gayi taqdeer mujhe
main jeet ke baazi haar gayaa
aaa
loot gayi taqdeer mujhe
main jeet ke baazi haar gayaa
jin raaton ki bhor nahin hai
aaj aisi hi raat aayi
ee
bojh se gham ki doob gaya dil
saagar ki hai gehraai
jin raaton ki

It is a testimony of our dubious taste that a beautiful movie like ‘Door Gagan ki Chhaon Mein’ didn’t do well! I had the good fortune of having seen this movie. Kishore Kumar was absolutely brilliant! As were Amit Kumar and Supriya Devi. Two songs that still manage to bring a lump in my throat are this song under discussion and ‘Koyi Lauta de Mere Beethe huve Din…” It must have shattered poor Kishore’s heart when this movie flopped at the box-office.

I do not believe that this movie was a flop – according to interviews with Amit Kumar, he has said that this movie was a hit. I would even say that all the songs from Door Gagan Ki Chaon Mein were absolute gems, be it from the lyrics, music or the singing point of view. I remember seeing an interview with Asha where she had said that the songs that she sang in this movie were some of the most beautiful songs that she had sung.
