Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Aji aisa mauka phir kahaan milega

Posted on: August 14, 2012


Though we have discussed lots and lots of songs picturised on Shammi Kapoor, there are still songs that have yet to make it to the blog. Today (14th august 2012) is the first death anniversary of Shammi Kapoor. This offers us an opportunity to pay our tribute to Shammi Kapoor by discussing a few songs picturised on him.

Here is the title song of “An Evening in Paris” (1967). How come this song was not posted yet ? That is what I thought when Khyati Bhatt sent me the lyrics of this song for discussion. On ckecking up, I realised that though I had discussed as many as six songs from this movie, this song had somehow slipped away. Here is this well known song, finally.

The song, which is one of the many iconic Rafi-Shammi Kapoor songs is written by Hasrat Jaipuri. Shankar Jaikishan is the lyricist.

These days we have advertisements to lure movie watchers into movie halls. Things were much simpler those days. Just play the songs of the movie and movie goers would be attracted to movie halls like honey bees to sugar. I am sure this song must have played this role admirably well for this movie. In fact, listening to this song now, 45 years after the song was first heard publicly, still makes me feel like watching this movie. So one can well imagine how it must have been like 45 years ago !


Song-Aji asa mauka phir kahaan milega (An Evening in Paris)(1967) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics(Provided by Khyati Bhatt)

aji aisa mauka phir kahaan milega
hamaare jaisa dil kahaan milega
aao tumko dikhlaata hoon
Paris ki ik rangeen shaam
dekho dekho dekho dekho dekho
an evening in Paris
aji aisa mauka phir kahaan milega
hamaare jaisa dil kahaan milega
aao tumko dikhlaata hoon
Paris ki ik rangeen shaam
dekho dekho dekho dekho dekho
an evening in Paris

dekho ye pariyon ki toli
meethi meethi jinki boli
kya kya dil par rang jamaaye
jalwon ki ye aankh michauli
dekho ye pariyon ki toli
meethi meethi jinki boli
kya kya dil par rang jamaaye
jalwon ki ye aankh michauli
aji aisa mauka phir kahaan milega
hamaare jaisa dil kahaan milega
aao tumko dikhlaata hoon
Paris ki ik rangeen shaam
dekho dekho dekho dekho dekho
an evening in Paris

haathon mein haathon ko daale
phirte hain aashiq niraale
dhoondho yahaan tum bhi saathi
mil jaayenge husn waale
haathon mein haathon ko daale
phirte hain aashiq niraale
dhoondho yahaan tum bhi saathi
mil jaayenge husn waale
aji aisa mauka phir kahaan milega
hamaare jaisa dil kahaan milega
aao tumko dikhlaata hoon
Paris ki ik rangeen shaam
dekho dekho dekho dekho dekho
an evening in Paris

apne dil ka daaman bhar lo
mar jaaoge pyaar kar lo
kal ka sapna kisne dekha
in raahon se aaj guzar lo
apne dil ka daaman bhar lo
mar jaaoge pyaar karlo
kal ka sapna kisne dekha
in raahon se aaj guzar lo
aji aisa mauka phir kahaan milega
hamaare jaisa dil kahaan milega
aao tumko dikhlaata hoon
Paris ki ik rangeen shaam
dekho dekho dekho dekho dekho
an evening in Paris
an evening in Paris
an evening in Paris
