Justju jiski thhi usko to na paaya hamne

Posted on: September 4, 2012


By 1977, Rekha’s career was going nowhere and movie critics commented that she was wasting her career like Faryal. Faryal was held as the gold standard of career wasters those days, though I suppose Randhir Kapoor was not far behind her.

As far as Rekha was concered, she matured almost overnight, underwent a miraculous makeover and was a transformed person from 1978 onwards ! The first movie where moviewatchers witnessed a transformed Rakha was “Ghar”(1978) and from there onwards she never looked back.She became career conscious and a thorough professional as an actress and her career skyrocketed.

“Umraao Jaan”(1981) could well be the zenith of Rekha’s career. Movies on the life of UMrao Jaan have been made earlier too, but this movie established Rekha in the minds of public as Umraao Jaan. It is similar to the way how many people of an older generation imagine that Emperor Akbar looked like Prithviraj Kapoor. 🙂

“Umraao Jaan” (1981) was a high point in the careers of many people associated with this movie. The movie won critical acclaim, popular acclaim as well as official acclaim. The movie won two filmfare awards -for best direction (Muzaffar Ali) and best music direction (Khayyam). The movie also won two national film awards- for best actress (Rekha) and best music direction (Khayyam). Khayyam being honoured as the best music director by public as well as the Goverment is something quite rare and may not have happened before.

As many as four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the fifth song from this movie. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is lip synced by Rekha as a kotha song, with Farooque Sheikh present as her client. Lyrics are by Shaharyar.

Lyrics

aa aa aa aa

aa aa aa aa
justju jiski thhi
us ko to na paayaa hamne
justju jiski thhi
us ko to na paayaa hamne
is bahaane se magar
dekh li duniyaa hamne
justju jiski thhi

tujhko rusvaa na kiyaa
aa aa
aa aa aa
tujhko rusvaa na kiyaa
khud bhi pashemaan na huye
ae ae
ishq ki rasm ko
ishq ki rasm ko
is tarah nibhaayaa hamne
ishq ki rasm ko
is tarah nibhaayaa hamne
justju jiski thhi

kab mili thhi
kahaan bichhdi thhi
aa aa
aa aa
kab mili thhi
kahaan bichhdi thhi
hamen yaad nahin
een een
zindagi tujhko to
zindagi tujhko to
bas khwaab mein dekhaa hamne
zindagi tujhko to
bas khwaab mein dekhaa hamne
justju jiski thhi

ae Ada aa aa aa
ae Ada
aur sunaaye bhi to kyaa haal apnaa
aa aa
umr kaa lambaa safar
umr kaa lambaa safar
tay kiyaa tanhaa hamne
umr kaa lambaa safar
tay kiyaa tanhaa hamne
justju jiski thhi
us ko to na paayaa hamne
is bahaane se magar
dekh li duniyaa hamne
justju jiski thhi

The full name is Umrao jaan-e-Adaa. ‘Adaa’ is the takhallus or pen name, which is there in the final sha’ir.

Rekha has made Umrao Jaan immortal and vice versa.

Another actress featuring in the song sequence is Rita Rani Kaul.

Rita Rani stayed at our place for few months in the early days as her father Kaulchacha (as we used to call him) was my father’s friend. I told her upfront that she is not a heroine material. She did not like it. May be she realizes now. She married to the TV artiste(dadu of Balika Badhu)

One of my all time favourite songs. Thank you.

While watching this film, I observed that this ghazal was preceded by two she’rs sung by Asha Bhosle in the same beher (metre).

The video of the full ghazal.

Lyrics of two she’rs:

tum se bichhade hain to ab kis se milaati hai hamen
zindagi dekhiye kyaa rang dikhaati hai hamen
zindagi dekhiye kyaa rang dikhaati hai hamen

gardish-e-waqt ka kitna bada ehsaan hai tera
ye zameen chaand se behatar nazar aati hai hamen
ye zameen chaand se behatar nazar aati hai hamen
