Jaane kyun hai aaj kal

Posted on: September 1, 2012


“Jazbaat” (1980) was a Rajshree Productions movie. It was produced by Tarachanda Barjatya and directed by Suraj Prakash. The movie had Raj Babbar, Zarina Wahab, Rajendranath, Bhagwan, Savita Bajaj, Shail Chaturvedi, Dinesh hingoo, T P Jain, P Jairaj, Subbiraj, Jankidas, Viju Khote, Leela Mishra, Moolchand, Shashi Puri etc in it.

This movie may have sunk without a trace because I do not recall everbeing aware of this movie. This movie never made it to a movie hall near me where I was growing up.

The songs of this movie also did not make it to the air waves and as a result to the ear drums of most music lovers.

This movie had music by Rajkamal. Today (1 september) happens to be Rajkamal’s death anniversary. Despite being a music director of recent vintage, not much information is available on him on internet, which is rather sad. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on him.

Here is a song from “Jazbaat” (1980). This obscure song is not only composed by Rajkamal, but sung by him as well. Mahendra Dehalvi is the lyricist.

The song is picturised on Raj Babbar, Zarin Wahaab etc.


Song-Jaane kyun hai aaj kal(Jazbaat)(1980) Singer-Rajkamal, Lyrics-Mahendra Dehalvi, MD-Rajkamal
Chorus

Lyrics

laalaalaalaa aaa

jaane kyun hai aaj kal
khoyi khoyi zindagi
aa aa aa aaa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aaa
aa aa aa

jaane kyun hai aaj kal
khoyi khoyi zindagi
lagta hai ye jahaan
jaane kyun ajnabi
ee ee
jaane kyun hai aaj kal
khoyi khoyi zindagi
ahaa haa haa
aahaa haa haa
aaa aaa

jaana kahaan mujhe
ae ae ae
aur kahaan jaa rahaa hoon
jaana kahaan mujhe
ae ae ae
aur kahaan jaa rahaa hoon
hai khabar jahaan ki
ee ee
na khud ko pa rahaa hoon
laayi mujhe

ye meri bekhudi
ee ee
jaane kyun hai aaj kal
khoyi khoyi zindagi

bojhil si hai fazaa
aa aa aa
mausam dhuaan dhuaan hai
bojhil si hai fazaa
aa aa aa
mausam dhuaan dhuaan hai
hai wahi ye zameen
een een een
aur wahi aasmaan hai
wahi hoon main
magar mujhe
gham hai na koi khushi
ee ee ee
jaane kyun hai aaj kal
khoyi khoyi zindagi
laa laa laa
aa aa aa aa
laa laa laa
aa aaaaaa
laa laa laa
aa aa aa aa
lalalalalala
lalalala

Atul ji,
There are 2 names,connected with this film,which have hardly info to the general readers.
MAHENDRA DEHALAVI was born in Delhi in 1932 in a musician’s family.But he persued Journalism as he was more interested in writing than actual music.After few years,he came to Bombay to try his luck. he first started as a lyricist.His first film being Lalkar.he also tried his hand at writing s/play,dialogues and stories of films,like dardedil,Allrounder,Mehak,nagin aur lutera etc.Then he wrote lyrics again,in films like jazbaat,Lalkar,Ek baar kaho,Raju ban gaya gentleman,khiladi,laajo ets.he wrote songs for about 30 odd films.
he died on 22-12-1992.

RAJKAMAL was more famous as RAJASHRI films’ composer,though he gave music to other films and TV serials also.At the age of 17 itself,he got a Govt.recognition by way of an award for his Tabla playing.he started giving stage shows in Bombay,where,once Tarachand Barjatya heard him and promised him a break as a composer.This promise was fulfilled only with Sawan ka aane do-1979,after 14 years of hopes.meanwhile Rajkamal gave music to films like,Dost aur Dushman-71 and Achha-Bura-72,without much success.However Rajashri’s film opened a new life for him .he brought rustic and family color to Rajkamal films,which was emulated by other composers of Rajashri after him too.
His films wer Jazbaat,Mera Salam,payal ki jhanakaar-1980,which was a very popular musical.Alka Yagnik was given opportunity by him in this film first time.Then came Akhand Soubhagyavati,-81 and Chashm-e-baddur-81.Songs of this film were also famous like,kali Ghodi dwar khadi etc.katha-83 gave soft music.Phulwari-83,classical music was main.
Then he was invited by B.R.Chopra for MAHABHARAT.Then he did TV serial ‘Bahadurshah Zafar giving gazals of Zauk,Ghalib,Wajid ali shah and Zafar etc.This music was indeed a treat.
After this he did some films like kanoon meri Mutthi mein,Amma,Saat saal baad,Razia,Ganga maange khoon and sindoor ki Holi.His last film was Saaz-1996.He died on 1-9-2005.
He will be known for his Rajashri films and several Dharmik TV serials.
