Zaalim zamaana mujhko tumse chhuda raha hai

Posted on: August 8, 2012

“Dillagi” (1949) was a Kardar Productions movie. It was produced and directed by A R Kardar. The movie had Shyam, Suraiya, Sharada, Amar, Shyam Kumar, Amir Banu, Chandabai, Yasmin etc in it.

As many as nine songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the tenth song from “Dillagi” (1949).

This song is a duet which is sung by Shyam and Suraiyya. It is picturised on Shyam (the singer Shyam is different from the actor Shyam though) and Suraiyya (the same one :)).

Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Atif M.



Song-Zaalim zamaana mujhko tumse chhudaa raha hai (Dillagi)(1949) Singers-Shyam, Suraiyya, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad

Lyrics(Provided by Atif M)

zaalim zamaana mujh ko
tum se chhuda raha hai
ae ae
zaalim zamaana mujh ko
tum se chhuda raha hai
anjaam zindagi ka
anjaam zindagi ka
nazdeek aa raha hai
zaalim zamaana mujh ko
tum se chhuda raha hai

beete dinon ke naghme
dil aaj ga raha hai
duniya mein jaise apni
duniya mein jaise apni
koyi bula raha hai
beete dinon ke naghme
dil aaj gaa raha hai

tujh ko qasam hai aa kar
soorat zara dikha ja
aa aa
soorat zara dikha ja
deewaana dekh tera
duniya se ja raha hai

barbaadiyon ka apni
ee ee
shikwa nahin kisi se
ae ae
shikwa nahin kisi se
mera naseeb mujh ko
o o
yeh din dikha raha hai
beete dinon ke naghme
dil aaj ga raha hai

This song is my favourite. The silken voice of Suraiyya is a perfect contrast to the deep throaty voice of Shyam. By the way, it may come as a surprise to many that the singer Shyam had a long innings in Hindi movies as a beefy, barrel chested baddie! He’s the sinister dacoit who captures Shammi Kapoor in F C Mehra’s ‘Prince’! Shammi frees himself and in the ensuing fight, he burns Shyam’s face with a ‘mashaal’! Remember? Well, he is Shyam, the singer!
