Do naina aur ek kahaani

Posted on: August 22, 2012

“Masoom” (1983) was inspired from “Man, Woman and Child written” by Erich Segal. And it must be said that the tale was very well adapted by Gulzar who wrote the screenplay and directed with great sensitivity and understanding by Shekhar Kapoor. There were few people in the audience who remained unmoved by the plight of eight year old Rahul (played by Jugal Hansraj), a result of one night affair between an unwed Bhawna (played by Supriya Pathak) and a happily married DK (Naseeruddin Shah) at Nainital at a time when DK’s wife Indu (Shabana Azmi) is expecting their first child. DK goes back home and has a happy family life with two daughters Pinky (Urmila Matondkar) and Minni (Aradhana).

Rahul, born out of wdlock and brought up by Supriya Pathak gets orphaned when his mother dies. Masterji (P Jairaj), the guardian of Bhawna, sends words to DK, who arrives at Nainital. He brings Rahul to his home, obviously to a hostile reception, to his home. The story tells how he slowly and gradually gets accepted in the family, first by the younger daughter Minni, and then my Pinky. Indu is the last in accepting him in the family.

The trials of Rahul were picturised so nicely that I have not mustered the courage to watch the movie a second time, desppite knowing fully well that it is just a movie. I was not alone. My hostel room mate, with whom I watched this movie, was so overcome with emotion that he wanted to leave the movie hall at the hinterval itself. I had to persuade him to stay back, telling him that it was a movie after all.

This movie had four songs, and every song plays important part in the progress of the movie. All the songs of this movie have gone on to become much loved songs over the years.

This movie had four songs in all, and three of them have been discussed in the past. Here is the fourth and final song from this movie. This song is sung by Aarti Mukherji. It is picturised on Shabana Azmi who sings this song to her two daughters. Here a mother trying to protect the interests of her daughters- and the picturisation of this song subtly conveys this fact without too much melodrama.

This song won Aarti Mukherji the filmfare award for the best female playback singer of the year. Gulzar is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

With this song, all the songs of “Maasoom” (1983) have now been covered in the blog.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Peevesie.

Lyrics(Provided by Peevesie)

Do naina aur ek kahaani
do naina aur ek kahaani
thodaa saa baadal
thodaa saa paani
aur ek kahaani
do naina aur ek kahaani
thodaa saa baadal
thodaa saa paani
aur ek kahaani
do naina aur ek kahaani

chhhoti si do
jheelon mein woh
behti rehti hai
ho o chhoti si do
jheelon mein woh
behti rehti hai
koi sune yaa naa sune
kehti rehti hai
kuch likh ke aur
kuch zubaani
ohh thodaa saa baadal
thodaa saa paani
aur ek kahaani
do nainaa aur ek kahaani

thhodi si hai
jaani hui
thhodi si nayi
ohh thhodi si hai
jaani huyi
thhodi si nayi
jahaan ruke
aansoon wahin
poori ho gai
hai to nayi phir bhi
hai puraani
ho thhodaa saa baadal
thhodaa saa paani
aur ek kahaani
do nainaa aur ek kahaani

ek khatm ho
to doosari
raat aa jaati hai
ho o ek khatm ho
to doosari
raat aa jaati hai
hothhon pe fir bhooli huyi
baat aa jaati hai

do nainon ki hain ye kahaani
ho thhodaa saa baadal
thhodaa saa paani
aur ek kahaani
do nainaa aur ek kahaani
