Kitni jawaan hai raat koi yaad aa gayaa

Posted on: September 16, 2012


“Aazaad” (1955) was a Pakshiraj Production movie. It was directed by S M S Naidu. The movie had Dilip Kumar, Meena Kumari, Pran, S. Nazir, Raj Mehra, Randhir, Achla Sachdev, Deepa Sahi, Shammi, Subblaxmi, Badri Prasad, Murad, Om Prakash etc in it.

S M S Naidu was a man on a hurry and he had set firm targets for this movie. One of his set targets was to get all the nine songs of the movie recorded in one month. With this target in mind, he approached the leading music directors, but they all rebuffed him, stating that it was not possible to compose nine songs in one month. It was C Ramchandra who took up the challenge. And how well he responded. He had to brave some big odds. Once he found his male singer (Talat Mehmood) unavailable for recording. He solved the problem by singing the song himself and that too in Talat Mehmood style. He cloned Talat Mehmood so well in this song that Shailendra bet with Rajinder Krishan that the song was sung by Talat Mehmood, and lot the bet.

And the resultant songs were not some hastily done half baked affairs. Each one of the nine songs has gone on to become a timeless classic !

As many as eight of these songs have already been discussed in the past. Here is the ninth and final song from this movie.

This song is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Meena Kumari as a happy joyous song. Those were the days when Meena Kumari had yet to embrace tragedy roles.

What a lovely song to listen to and watch. It is yet another Lata- Rajinder Krishan-C Ramchandra gem. A quintessential “Chhaayageet” song by my definition !

Song-Kitni jawaan hai raat koi yaad aa gaya (Aazaad)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

kitni jawaan hai raat koi yaad aa gayaa
kitni jawaan hai raat koi yaad aa gayaa
badhne lagi hai baat koi yaad aa gayaa
kitni jawaan hai raat koi yaad aa gayaa
badhne lagi hai baat koi yaad aa gayaa

phir aa gayi chaman mein guzri huyi bahaar
phir aa gayi chaman mein guzri huyi bahaar
rehne lagaa kisi kaa phir dil ko intzaar
rahane lagaa kisi kaa phir dil ko intzaar
kab hogi mulaaqaat koi yaad aa gayaa
kab hogi mulaaqaat koi yaad aa gayaa
badhne lagi hai baat koi yaad aa gayaa
kitni jawaan hai raat koi yaad aa gayaa
badhne lagi hai baat koi yaad aa gayaa

phir yaad aa rahe hain
aen aen aen aen
guzre huye zamaane
phir yaad aa rahe hain
aen aen aen aen
guzre huye zamaane
dil gungunaa rahaa hai
ae ae ae ae
dil gungunaa rahaa hai
bhoole huye taraane
tanhaayi aur ye raat
koi yaad aa gaya
tanhaayi aur ye raat
koi yaad aa gaya
badhne lagi hai baat koi yaad aa gayaa
kitni jawaan hai raat koi yaad aa gayaa
badhne lagi hai baat koi yaad aa gayaa

aankhon se neend jaane ud kar kahaan gayi hai
aankhon se neend jaane ud kar kahaan gayi hai
wo bhi wahin pe honge nindiyaa jahaan gayi hai
wo bhi wahin pe honge nindiyaa jahaan gayi hai
shaayad yahi hai baat koi yaad aa gayaa
shaayad yahi hai baat koi yaad aa gayaa
badhne lagi hai baat koi yaad aa gayaa
kitni jawaan hai raat koi yaad aa gayaa
badhne lagi hai baat koi yaad aa gayaa
