Phir thhes lagi dil ko

Posted on: November 29, 2012

Prima Facie, it would appear that most Shammi Kapoor style movies starring Shammi Kapoor had music by Shankar Jaikishan. But that is not really the case. There have been several music directors compositing music for Shammi Kapoor’s movies beginning from “Tumsa Nahin Dekha” (1957) when Shammi Kapoor finally came into his own.

The movie ” Tumsa Nahin Dekha” (1957) that started the Shammi Kapoor phenomenon had music by O P Nayyar. The next Shammi Kapoor movie, viz. “Dil Deke Dekho” (1959) had music by Usha Khanna. It was in “Ujaala” (1959) that Shankar Jaikishan first composed music in a Shammi Kapoor movie.

During 1960s, when Shammi Kapoor’s career reached its zenith, majority of his movies had music by Shankar Jaikishan, but there were exceptions. For instance, Music of “Chinatown”(1962) was composed by Ravi. “Bluffmaster” (1963) had music by Kalyanji Anandji. And then who can forget “Teesri Manzi” (1966) which announced the arrival of R D Burman as a music director.

O P Nayyar himself composed the music of yet another Shammi Kapoor movie, namely “Kashmir Ki Kali” (1964). This movie, which was produced and directed by Shakti Samanta, had Shammi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Pran, Nasir Hussain, Madan Puri, Anup Kumar, Shashikala etc in this movie.

The movie had nine songs in it. As many as eight of them have already been discussed in the past.

Here is the ninth and final song from “Kashmir Ki Kali” (1964). This fantastic song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. S H Bihari is the lyricist.

This song suffered the same fate as that of another song namely Balmaa khuli hawaa mein . “Balma Khuli Hawa Mein” was deleted from the movie one week after the movie was released on the orders of censors, who realised belatedly that the picturisation of this song was “obscene”.

I have no idea what was the reason for deletion of the song under discussion. The lyrics of the song sound quite harmless. Perhaps the reason for deletion of this song from the movie may be different. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this matter.

In case this song was picturised then naturally it would have been picturised on Sharmila Tagore.

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

With this song, “Kashmir Ki Kali” (1964) joins the ranks of movies that have had all their songs discussed in the blog.

Song-Phir thhes lagi dil ko (Kashmir Ki Kali)(1964) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

phir thes lagi dil ko phir yaad ne tadpaya
phir behne lage aansu dil dard se bhar aayaa
phir thes lagi dil ko

duniya tere gulshan se ek phool chuna hamne
duniya tere gulshan se ek phool chuna hamne
ek phool chuna hamne
afsos ke daaman ko kaanton se bharaa paayaa
phir thes lagi dil ko

ek woh hai khuda rakhhe jo bhool gaye hamko
ek woh hai khuda rakhhe jo bhool gaye hamko
jo bhool gaye hamko
ek ham hain ki honthon par shiqwaa na kabhi aayaa
phir behne lage aansu dil dard se bhar aayaa
phir thes lagi dil ko

Yipppeee!. Wait a minute, this calls for Yahooooo! ;).


Shammi Kapoor was the most stylish hero of all, ever. Whatever he did was steeped in style-sassy, swanky and with-it . He was always nattily dressed. Walking -he had a swagger, singing with verve and gusto. Nobody could dance like him. He had two right feet!!!. Heroines loved his mauling; lapped up his leering flirting eyes as it did kuchh kuchh to them. May be he was breathing style or maybe he was even breathing stylishly.


After a loooooong time I heard this song here.
Such a lovely song with good lyrics may have faced the same fate as many others ‘deleted from the film’ songs.


Atul ji,
There is no mention in HFGK that this song was deleted from the film.I think it was very much there in the film.


Duniya tere gulshan se ik phool chuna hamne
afsos ke damaan ko kanton se bhara paaya

Don’t know why this song was cut from the movie. It is a very beautiful song.


Movie was considered too long by the producers and hence one week after the release, they decided to cut 2 songs from the movie: Phir Thes Lagi and Balma Khuli Hawa Mein. So they never made it to VHS/DVD/VCD, etc. for most of the viewers.


aah! what a song!
many-many thanks.
