Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Teri hai zameen tera aasmaan

Posted on: October 17, 2012


I find that the movies that I did not like often ended up as big hits (viz. “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”, “Suhaag” etc). On the other hands , the movies that I like a lot end up getting lukewarm response from the public (viz “The Great Gambler”, “The Burning Train”, “Deshpremi” etc).

I watched “The Burning Train” (1980) first day first show, if I remember correctly (or perhaps first day second show or something like that) and I loved the movie. The background music that plays when the credits roll in is something that I remember even today and I can watch this movie just to see this movie opening credits.

The movie itself was quite nice to watch. It was inspired from two movies, one was “Towering Inferno” and another was “The Bullet Train”.

This B R Chopra movie was slickly produced, but The Indian janta who cannot look beyond lost and found formula movies did not like the movie. It was a disaster movie and Indian movies goers do not like to watch disaster movies was the rationalisation. I do not understand this logic seeing that Indian movie goers patronised tragedy movies so much in the 1950s and 1960s.

Personally I found the songs of ths movie no great shakes. But the qawwaali song from this movie is the exception and this song to my mind is one of the most memorable rail songs cum qawwaali songs in Hindi movies.

With time, I have begun to appreciate the other songs of this movie as weall.

Take this song from “The Burning Train”(1980) for instance. This song, like the Qawwaali song, is picturised on the train. A group of school children, accompanied by their teacher sing this song on the train which has lost control by that time. In this song, they implore the Almighty to save them.

The song is sung by Padmini Kolhapure, Sushma Shreshtha and chorus. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman. The song is picturised on Simmi Garewal, Master Bittoo, Baby Khushboo etc.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

On the occasion of Simi Garewal’s birthday today (17 october), here is this lovely song from “The Burning Train” (1980).

oo..oo..ooo
teri marzi se aei maalik
hum iss duniyaa mein aaye hain

(Dialogues)
tum log
chhupp kyon ho gaye
gaao na bachcho gaao

teri marzi se aei maalik
hum iss duniyaa mein aaye hain
teri rehmat se hum sab ne
ye jism-o-jaan paaye hain

tu apni nazar hum par rakhnaa
kiss haal mein hai yeh khabar rakhnaa

teri hai zameen
teraa aasmaan
tu badaa meharbaan
tu baksheesh kar
sabhi kaa hai tu
sabhi tere
khudaa mere
tu baksheesh kar

tu chaahe toh
hamein rakhein
tu chaahe toh
hamein maare

(sobbing sound)
tu chaahe toh
hamein rakhein
tu chaahe toh
hamein maare

oo..oo
tere aage jhukaake sar
khade hain aaj hum saare

o sabse badi taaqatwaale
tu chaahe toh har aafat taale

teri hai zameen (aaaaaaa)
teraa aasmaan (aaaaaaa)
tu badaa meharbaan (aaaaaaaa)
tu baksheesh kar (aaaaaaaaa)
sabhi kaa hai tu (aaaaa)
sabhi tere (aaaaaaaaaaa)
khudaa mere (aaaaaaaa)
tu baksheesh kar (aaaaaaa)

You are doing a great job for remembering old songs which normally not available.

Thanks

Thanks for your kind words.

This tune seems to be inspired by the National Anthem of Sri Lanka-
