Posted on: October 10, 2012

“Devdas” (1955) was a Bimal Roy Production movie. It was produced and directed by Bimal Roy. The movie had Dilip Kumar, Vaijayantimala, Johnny Walker, Pran, Suchitra Sen, Motilal, N. Hussain etc in it.

As many as seven songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is another song from the movie.

This song is a slow melancholic song. It is sung by Talat Mehmood. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman whose birth anniversary falls today (10 october).

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.



Song-Kisko khabar thhi kisko yaqeen thha (Devdas)(1955) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

kis ko khabar thhi
kis ko yaqeen thhaa
aise bhi din aayenge
haaye jeena bhi mushqil hoga aur
marne bhi na paayenge
kis ko khabar thhi

ham jaise
ham jaise barbad dilo ka aa aa aa aa
jeena kya aur marna kya
ham jaise barbad dilo ka aa aa aa aa
jeena kya aur marna kya
aaj teri mehfil se uthhe
kal duniya se uthh jaayenge
haay kis ko khabar thhi

Thank you Nitin-ji. This song too, like all the others in ‘Devdas’, is a beautiful number. The melancholy, despair and brooding of Devdas has been brought out so poignantly by Talat-saab.


Talat is known for setting the blue mood.


I agree. Years ago, I had an LP titled ‘Talat in a blue mood’. Every song was ‘lajawab’!


Lovely Talat solo. I was kind of oblivious of the great music set up by SDB for Devdas. Now I am kind of re-discovering it and, I must add, thoroughly enjoying it too.


Any idea about the sarangi player and bansuri player?
