Aaj rota hai kyun

Posted on: September 17, 2012


Today (17 september) is the death anniversary of Dev Kumar, an actor who was active from 1960s to 1980s. Not too many songs were picturised on him in Hindi movies because he mainly acted as a baddie. But there were a few movies where he acted as the lead actor and songs were picturised on him.

“Ghar Ka Chiraag” (1967) is one such movie. This movie was a Harinathraj Films production. It was produced and directed by Jagdev Bhambri. The movie had Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Biswajeet, Dev Kumar, Indrani Mukherjee, Chand Usmani, Balraj Sahni, Abhi Bhattacharya, Master Ajay, Purnima, Tuntun, Jagdev,J abeen Jalil, Master Ratan, Mohan Choti,Shekhar Purohit, V.Gopal etc.

Here is a song from this movie. It is sung by Rafi and it is picturised on Dev Kumar.

Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Praskashchandra)

aaj rotaa hai kyun
aaj rotaa hai kyun
aaj rotaa hai kyun

aaj rotaa hai kyun
jaan khotaa hai kyun
zulm dhaataa rahaa
muskuraataa rahaa
jaal har raaste mein bichhaataa rahaa
phans gayaa khud toh
bechain hotaa hai kyun
aaj rotaa hai kyun
jaan khotaa hai kyun

phool teraa bhi khilne naa paaye
bad-duaa dee hai baaghon ne tujhko
phool teraa bhi khilne naa paaye
bad-duaa dee hai baaghon ne tujhko
bhar diyaa zindagi mein andheraa
ye sazaa dee chiraagon ne tujhko
tu jo har roshni ko bujhaataa rahaa
jaal har raaste mein bichhaataa rahaa
phans gayaa khud toh bechain hotaa hain kyun
aaj rotaa hai kyun
jaan khotaa hai kyun

reham ki bheekh duniyaa na degi
tujhko duniyaa pe kab reham aayaa
reham ki bheekh duniyaa na degi
tujhko duniyaa pe kab reham aayaa
pad gayaa jiss pe saayaa bhi teraa
dil kabhi woh dhadakne naa paayaa
hansnewaalon ko ronaa sikhaataa rahaa
jaal har raaste mein bichhaataa rahaa
phans gayaa khud toh bechain hotaa hai kyun
aaj rota hai kyun
jaan khotaa hai kyun

tujhse pehle bhi guzre hain zaalim
unnkaa anjaam sochaa toh hotaa
tujhse pehle bhi guzre hain zaalim
unnkaa anjaam sochaa toh hotaa
dhoop kab tak sitam ki rahegi
aayegi shaam sochaa toh hotaa
kaise kaise tu fitney uttathaa rahaa
jaal har raaste mein bichhaathaa rahaa
phans gayaa khud toh bechain hotaa hai kyun
aaj rotaa hai kyun
jaan khotaa hai kyun

jaa rahaa hai kahaan sar patakne
tujhko bhagwaan thukraa chukaa hai
jaa rahaa hai kahaan sar patakne
tujhko bhagwaan thukraa chukaa hai
degaa shaitaan bhi kyaa sahaaraa
tujhko shaitaan thukraa chukaa hai
jisske kadmon pe tu sar jhukaataa rahaa
jaal har raaste mein bichhaathaa rahaa
phans gayaa khud toh bechain hotaa hai kyun
aaj rotaa hai kyun
jaan khotaa hai kyun
zulm dhaataa rahaa
muskuraataa rahaa
jaal har raaste mein bichhaataa rahaa
phans gayaa khud toh
bechain hotaa hai kyun
aaj rotaa hai kyun
jaan khotaa hai kyun
