Barbaad e muhabbat ki duaa saath liye jaa

Posted on: February 1, 2013


This article is written by nahm, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Here is another solo of Rafi Sahab from the film “Laila Majnu” (1976). This is a ghazal picturized as a doli song with Majnu following Laila’s doli in the desert and singing this song , imploring Laila to take with her, the prayers of the one who has been left desolate in her love. This is among the last few compositions of Madan Mohan. Lyricist is Saahir Ludhianvi. Master of ghazals as Madan Mohan is known as, this is a brilliant creation of all three legends. A teetotaler simpleton, a cynical intellectual and a broken genuis alcoholic. A strange combination if there were any.

It is obvious that Rafi Sahab has given his all to this song. Despite the defect in the sound recording system, he is sounding as melodious as always. This is a slow moving song and again sung at a high pitch. This was rare for Madan Mohan. I have heard Rafi Sahab’s co-singers talking about his singing at a high pitch and trying to sing as high as he could. But Rafi went high mostly when he was singing solos. If he is singing alongwith chorus, the voice is distinguishable, but is heard with difficulty when singing in tandem with his co-singers. A case in point is the song in “Haqeeqat”, ‘Ho ke majboor mujhe uss ne bhulaaya hogaa’. Here he is singing with Bhupinder, Talat Mahmood and Manna Dey. Having sung the opening two lines beautifully, he is completely drowned by other voices, while singing the subsequent lines. Same thing is happening in all stanzas. I may be exaggerating in this observation, but I found it difficult the detect him and Bhupinder in that songs in the chorus portions. I do not mean to say that the others were trying to over shadow him. Both Talat Mahmood and Manna Dey have their distinct timber, so did Mohammed Rafi. One reason for this could be that Rafi was conscious of his high pitch and he deliberately kept his voice very low on these occasions.

All classic love stories like these have a song sequence when the Laila, Heer, Shirin is married to someone else and similar song I remembered just now from ‘Shirin Farhad’ is Guzra hua zamaana aata nahin dobaara .

So here is a song which must be the last solo composed by Madan Mohan for Mohammed Rafi. Rishi Kapoor as Majnu is once again defining the word ‘vehshat zadaa’ and adding to the word. This the seventh song from this film appearing in the blog.

I am tempted to translate this ghazal, but am leaving it to Sudhir Sir, who will surely do much better job 🙂 .

Song-Barbaad e muhabbat ki duaa saath liye jaa (Laila Majnu)(1976) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

barbaad-e-mohabbat ki duaa saathh liye jaa
barbaad-e-mohabbat ki duaa saathh liye jaa
toota huaa iqraar-e-wafaa saathh liye jaa
barbaad-e-mohabbat ki duaa saathh liye jaa

ek dil thhaa jo pehle hi tujhe saunp diyaa thhaa
ek dil thhaa jo pehle hi tujhe saunp diyaa thhaa
yeh jaan bhi ae jaan-e-adaa saathh liye jaa
yeh jaan bhi ae jaan-e-adaa saathh liye jaa

tapti hui raahon se tujhe aanch na pahunche ae
tapti hui raahon se tujhe aanch na pahunche ae
deewaane ke ashkon ki ghataa saathh liye jaa
deewaane ke ashkon ki ghataa saathh liye jaa

shaamil hai meraa khoon-e-jigar teri hinaa mein
shaamil hai meraa khoon-e-jigar teri hinaa mein
yeh kam ho to ab khoon-e-wafaa saathh liye jaa
yeh kam ho to ab khoon-e-wafaa saathh liye jaa

ham jurm-e-muhabbat ki sazaa paayenge tanhaa
ham jurm-e-muhabbat ki sazaa paayenge tanhaa aa aa
jo tujh se hui ho woh khataa saathh liye jaa
jo tujh se hui ho woh khataa saathh liye jaa
toota huaa iqraar-e-wafaa saathh liye jaa
barbaad-e-muhabbat ki duaa saathh liye jaa
barbaad-e-muhabbat ki duaa saathh liye jaa

This song wasn’t posted yet? Love all songs of this movie.

Thanks for this write-up, nahmji. Indeed this situation is reminiscent of “guzra hua zamaana”. Very similar situations, I suppose.
