Posted on: October 8, 2012


I am aware of “Taxi Driver” (1954) but I was not aware that a movie with the same title was released in 1973 too. “Taxi Driver” (1973) was an M H Films Production. It was produced and directed by Mohammad Hussain. The movie had Ashok Kumar,Nirupa Roy, Helen, Vishal Anand aka Bhisham Kohli(Chalte Chalte fame), Anupama, Habib, Asit Sen, Munshi Munaqqa, Nazir Kashmiri, Uma Dutt, Ratna Mala, JankiDAss, Tuntun, Paro, Upendra Trivedi, Mohan Choti, Shabnam, Bhagwan dada, Sham Kumar,Dada Curtey, Prabha Desai, Jerry, Sabir, Gul Hamid, Maqbul, Dog Prince, Faryal, Jayashree T,Jagdeep, Randhir etc.

Today (8 october) is the birthday of lyricist Ahmad Wasi. The name may not ring too many bells but he has written a few songs in Hindi movies, including in “Taxi Driver” (1973).

Here is a song from this movie. It is written by Ahmad Wasi. Asha Bhonsle is the singer and music is composed by O P Nayyar.

The song is picturised on Jayshree T as a cabarat song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

baalam harjaayee ee ee
jaa main toh aankh milaa pachhtaayee
hoyye oyye oyye oyye oyye
baalam harjaayee ee ee
jaa main toh aankh milaa pachhataayee
hoyye oyye oyye oyye oyye
baalam harjaayee ee
jaa main toh aankh milaa pachhtaayee

dil toh shikaar kiyaa hai
naainon mein teer bharke
bannte ho kitne bhole
panchhi ko qaid karke
sochegaa kyaa zamaanaa
oyye hoye hoye oho ho ooo ho
sochegaa kyaa zamaanaa
dil se nikaal daalo
machhle hain pyaar ki machhli
tum apnaa jaal daalo
baalam
aahhaa baalam
ohho baalam harjaayee ee ee
jaa main toh aankh milaa pachhtaayee
oyye oyye oyye oyye oyye
baalam harjaayee ee
jaa main toh aankh milaa pachhtaayee

aaknhon mein leke aayee
chahaat ke khwaab dekho
apni nazar se padhke
dil ki kitaab dekho
aaknhon mein leke aayee
chahaat ke khwaab dekho
apni nazar se padhke
dil ki kitaab dekho
bannke main aag aayee
barsoongi paani bannke
bannke main aag aayee
barsoongi paani bannke
tere liye aa gayee hoon
jalti jawaani bannke
baalam
aahhaa baalam
ohhoo baalam harjaayee ee ee
jaa main toh aankh milaa pachhtaayee
oyye hoyye oyye oyye oyye
baalam harjaayee ee
jaa main toh aankh milaa pachhtaayee

chaahat ki baatein karke
dil ko chhuraanewaale
woh koyee aur honge
baaton mein aanewaale
tum kitne bewaffa ho
aayye haayye haayye
aahhaa haaaa..aaaaaa
tum kitne bewaffa ho
ab hamne jaan liyaa hai
dilbar kaa asli chehraa
dil ne pehchaan liyaa hai
baalam
aahhaa baalam
jaa ha baalam harjaayee eee ee
jaa main toh aankh milaa pachhtaayee
oyye oyye oyye oyye oyye
baalam harjaayee eee
jaa hha main toh aankh milaa pachhtaayee

Man proposes, God disposes..
Very sad news for Ashaji on passing of her daughter Varsha.
Varsha, was more a journalist than a singer. she was very diligent and a very skillful writer. I’m so saddened that we lost such a fabulous woman.
My deepest sympathy to all the members of her family.

Atul ji,
Lyricist AHMED VASI may not click to many people,right,but he was a very learned and qualified writer and poet cum shayar.
Born in Sitapur(UP) on 8-10-1942 he graduated from Lucknow University with English Litterature and started his Law studies.he was very fond of writing poems and gazals.Once he went to see a film along with his friend.That film had music by O.P.Nayyar,Vasi’s favourite composer.In a discussion after the film there was a bet with that friend that one day Vasi will write songs for OPNayyar .
In 1963 he joined Vividh Bharati’s fermaish programme and in no time it was extremely popular due to his prsentation style and a deep knowledge of Hindi films.meanwhile HMV had recorded several of his gazals and marketed them.It so happened that OPNayyar had liked his one Gazal and was on the look out for the shayar.thru a common friend Ahmed Vasi was contacted and OPNayyar himself requested him to write song for his current film ‘Pran jaye par vachan na jaaye’.he wrote one song and gave ti and immediately telephoned his friend to tell him that he had won the bet !.He wrote songs for Taxi driver,Heera moti,kanoon aur mujrim,Ek hi manzil,yatra etc etc.
He has published several books of poems and won many awards too.He is still very active on TV programmes.
