Ek tu hai piyaa jispe dil aa gaya

Posted on: August 8, 2012


O P Nayyar took Asha Bhonsle uder his wings and transformed her from a talented struggling singer to a singer with her own identity who could hold her own vis a vis any other singer in the industry.

More than 50% of all O P Nayyar compositions had the voice of Asha Bhonsle. This blog has 274 O P Nayyar songs as of now and Asha Bhonsle’s voice figures in as many as 141 of them. That shows the importance of Asha Bhonsle’s voice in O P Nayyar’s compositions.

Their association lasted till 1972. It has been informeded by one reader that the date they broke off was 5 august 1972, after recording a song of “Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye” (1973). I am not sure of the date, but it is true that this movie was the last time the two of them worked together. One of the songs of “Pran Gaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye” (1973), viz. Chain se hamko kabhi won the Filmfare award for the best song of the year too, but Asha Bhonsle did nt turn up to accept the award. Not just that, the song was deleted from the movie so no one has any ide how this song was picturised.

O P Nayyar, who had attended the function accepted the trophy and on his way back home threw the trophy out of the car.

The songs of the movie were quite nice to listen to. I have so far discussed only the above mentioned song from this movie. Here is another song from the movie. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is picturised as a mujra song on Rekha. S H Bihari is the lyricist.

The lyrics of this song were sent to me by nahm.

Song-Ek tu hai piya jispe dil aa gaya (Pran jaaye par vachan na jaaye)(1973) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics(Provided by nahm)

mere ghar sarkaar aaye
kahiye kya khaatir karoon
main badi uljhan mein hoon ki
baat kya aakhir karoon
aap hi se poochhti hoon
aap hi farmaayiye
dil karoon main pesh khidmat
yaa ke jaan haazir karoon

oh ho ho o o
ek tu hai piya
jis pe dil aa gayaa
ek tu hai piya
jis pe dil aa gayaa
teri ek najar ne raaja
beqaraar kar diyaa
teri ek najar ne raaja
beqaraar kar diya
ek tu hai piya
jis pe dil aa gayaa
teri ek najar ne raaja
beqaraar kar diyaa
teri ek najar ne raaja
beqaraar kar diya
ek tu hai piya
jis pe dil aa gayaa

apni to najar mein
tu raaja koyi chor hai
jiskaa ke saare zamaane
mein hi shor hai
apni to najar mein
tu raaja koyi chor hai
jiskaa ke saare zamaane
mein hi shor hai
aur kahoon kya tujhko
oye loot liyaa re mujhko
aur kahoon kya tujhko
haay loot liyaa re mujhko
tu ne aankh milaa ke jeena
dushwaar kar diyaa
tu ne aankh milaa ke jeena
dushwaar kar diyaa
ek tu hai piya
jis pe dil aa gayaa
teri ek najar ne raaja
beqaraar kar diyaa
teri ek najar ne raaja
beqaraar kar diya
ek tu hai piya
jis pe dil aa gayaa

dheere dheere ham tum
kahaan se kahaan aa gaye
donon ke dil ke
iraade takra gaye
dheere dheere ham tum
kahaan se kahaan aa gaye
donon ke dil ke
iraade takra gaye
phir se yeh dil waali
nahin laut ke aane waali
phir se yeh dil waali
nahin laut ke aane waali
kahin aaj agar jo tu ne
inkaar kar diya
kahin aaj agar jo tu ne
inkaar kar diya
ek tu hai piya
jis pe dil aa gayaa
teri ek najar ne raaja
beqaraar kar diyaa
teri ek najar ne raaja
beqaraar kar diya
ek tu
hai piya
jis pe dil aa gayaa

Thanks Atulji for sharing this information on breaking off of this duo and the winning trophy story. I was not aware of this tragedy! Can anyone share the details?

Are Rajaji,
Kahan kho gaye aap? Nahm has send a perfect song. Ye gaane mein kitni baar aap ko aawaaz dee jaa rahi hai, ab to jawaab de do. Just replace the word “nazar” by “post” in teri ek nazar ne…. and you will know what I mean.
Your last post was on Rafi sahab’s death anniv, Hum tum jise kehta hai shaadi…… Shaadi barbaadi hai ye kehne ke baad bhi koi iss se bach nahin paaya hai. 😆 Pata nahin ab aap pe is gaane ka kya asar hua hai ki aath din hogaye phir bhi koi ata pataa nahin hai aap ka. BTW, your song Hum tum jisse ………should have been posted on “Aazaadi Din”. Kitne saare barbaadi se bach jaate. 😆
You must be busy with some imp work. Just to let you know that we are missing your “presence” on the blog.

Everything is new to me.
Nice to know…
But one question….whose award OPN discarded, his or Asha?
From his action one thing for sure…it must been very bitter split.
Even today Ashatai is not talking much of OPN…as much of RDB…(as a musician, I mean)

True derubala~ji! Ashatai and her equally famous sister were well known for manipulating the music directors and fellow playback singers. Asha Bhosale started her career as a glorified chorus singer. And she would have stayed where she was had it not been for O P Nayyar who catapulted her to the dizzying heights of fame. No one truly knows what transpired between the two and for the subsequent fallout. But the sad fact is, Asha never ever mentioned her mentor in her interviews. She used to go on and on about dear Pancham. Asha Bhosale conveniently forgot the fact that without O P Nayyar, Pancham———and we——-would never have known of her very existence!

I remember very first time she came to USA in some where late 70’s…may be 1977(?)…with RDB…any way, I heard her interview on Radio about her life…even those days she only talk about SDB and RDB…But I had the memories of the era of 50’s 60’s that she had so many songs with OPN but she said nothing… She talked about her sister for sure…that she had no help from Lata, and everything she did it’s her own. I remember attending her show and she had Varsha sing one of her song…which didn’t go well with audiences.
