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

Waadiyon mein kho jaayen ham tum

Posted on: February 22, 2013


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

The 1976 film ‘Aarambh’ may not be a very well known film, but it does carry a unique distinction. It remains the only Hindi film for which the music has been scored by the famous Anand Shankar.

Anand Shankar comes from the family of renowned music and dance artists. He is the son of Uday and Amala Shankar, and nephew to Pt. Ravi Shankar. He was born in Almora (Uttar Pradesh) in 1942. The legacy of performing arts was bequeathed to him in pedigree, although he learnt his music not from his parents or the famous uncle. His style of music is the fusion of the eastern and western music traditions. In his twenties, he spent some years in the west, and did collaborative work with artists and music groups like Jimi Hendrix, Doors and The Rolling Stones. In his music, he would weave in threads of western music when working with Indian classical pieces, and also reprised many hits of the western genres using musical instruments of India. He returned to India in early 1970s, and was actively involved in the performing arts scene in the country, for almost two decades. In 1975, he released his most popular album “Anand Shankar, and His Music”. In about the same period, I heard one of the tracks from this album, being performed at a function. I was impressed enough to go out and buy the cassette. It is still with me, one of my treasured items in my collection. And then sometimes during the late 1970s, I saw a performance of his stage show, ‘Shankarscope’. This show was an unique experiment that combined film and stage action into a single thread. The beauty of this was the almost seamless blending of the two media, as the play action transitioned between the screen and the stage. It was an experiment that I have not yet seen repeated elsewhere.

In the mid 1990s, his popularity was on the increase in the west once again, and he began spending more time in the UK. (A comprehensive list of his works can be seen at the Wikipedia page here. On March 1999, barely 56 years in age, he passed away after a sudden heart attack.

Anand Shankar’s foray into films have been limited. He did the composition for Mrinal Sen’s Bengali film ‘Chorus’ for which he bagged the National Award for Best Music Direction. He has also done one Tamil film with director Sridhar. In Hindi cinema, ‘Aarambh’ is his only appearance as a music director. The film is from the banner of Prerna Pictures, Calcutta, directed by Gyan Kumar. The star cast includes Rakesh Pandey, Rama Vij, Kishore Kapoor, Vipin Gupta, Rohin Kumar, Kalyan Chatterjee, Surendra Gupta, Tez Bahadur, CR Tenaani, Nawal Joshi, Akhtar, Gayatri Mukherjee, Lami Chhaaya, Master Piyush, and Pallavi Mehta etc. The film has four songs, that are penned by three poets, Shri Shalabh, Harish Bhadaani, Shakeel Ahmed. This song is written by Shakeel Ahmed.

This is the second song from this film to make to this blog. Another gem in the voice of Mukesh, “Sab Sukh Door Se Guzren” is already posted here. Two more songs, solos in the voice of Aarti Mukherjee are awaiting their turn to be presented here.

The song is a love duet in the voices of Mukesh and Aarti Mukherjee. The two lovers together desire to lose themselves the vistas and the environment. The words are lovely, the music arrangement is simply out of this world, and the voice of Mukesh carries along Aarti Mukherjee, in a dreamlike scenario, that is oh so pleasing to the ears and the mind. I have been able to locate only the audio of this song, but simply the audio only is such a beautiful experience. The slightly echoing voice of Mukesh is simply such a delight to listen in this song. Enjoy.

Lyrics

waadiyon mein kho jaayen hum tum
aao in waadiyon mein kho jaayen hum tum
hum tum
ye samaa hai suhaana
haan ji
haan ji suhaana

ho jaayen gum sum
o ho ho
waadiyon mein kho jaayen hum tum
aao in waadiyon mein kho jaayen hum tum
hum tum

ye samaa hai suhaana
haan ji
haan ji suhaana

ho jaayen gum sum

mujhe donon jahaan ki
mil gayi hain khushiyaan
tum jo mere hamraahi miley

dil ka ye chaman phir
lagaa muskuraane
armaanon ke hain phool khile
sahaara
dil hi to ho sahaara

haan ji haan
tum hi sahaara
chalte jaayen hum

pyaara ye samaa hai
mausam bhi jawaan hai
chaaron taraf husn ki daastaan hai
mujhe lagta hai jaise
hamen dekh kar ye
lagaa muskuraane zameen aasmaan hai

deewaana
pyaar mein ho ke deewaana
jaise ye saara zamaana
apni dhun mein gum
aa haan haan
waadiyon mein kho jaayen hum tum
aao in waadiyon mein kho jaayen hum tum
hum tum

ye samaa hai suhaana
haan ji
haan ji suhaana

ho jaayen gum sum

aa haa haa
(o ho ho)
waadiyon mein kho jaayen hum tum

la laaa lalaaa la la la laalaa laalaa
la laaa lalaaa la la la laalaa laalaa

वादियों में खो जाएँ हम तुम
आओ इन वादियों में खो जाएँ हम तुम
हम तुम
ये समा है सुहाना
हाँ जी
हाँ जी सुहाना

हो जाएँ गुम सुम
ओ हो हो
वादियों में खो जाएँ हम तुम
आओ इन वादियों में खो जाएँ हम तुम
हम तुम

ये समा है सुहाना
हाँ जी
हाँ जी सुहाना

हो जाएँ गुम सुम

मुझे दोनों जहां जी
मिल गयी हैं खुशियाँ
तुम जो मेरे हमराही मिले

दिल का ये चमन फिर
लगा मुस्कुराने
अरमानों के फूल खिले
सहारा
दिल ही तो हो सहारा

हाँ जी हाँ
तुम ही सहारा
चलते जाएँ हम

प्यारा ये समा है
मौसम भी जवान है
चारों तरफ हुस्न की दास्तान है
मुझे लगता है जैसे
हमें देख कर ये
लगा मुस्कुराने ज़मीन आसमान है

दीवाना
प्यार में हो के दीवाना
जैसे ये सारा ज़माना
अपनी धुन में गुम
आ हां हां
वादियों में खो जाएँ हम तुम
आओ इन वादियों में खो जाएँ हम तुम
हम तुम

ये समा है सुहाना
हाँ जी
हाँ जी सुहाना

हो जाएँ गुम सुम

आ हां हां
(ओ हो हो)
वादियों में खो जाएँ हम तुम

ला ला लला ला ला ला लाला लाला
ला ला लला ला ला ला लाला लाला

I have heard this song a lot of times on the radio. It is indeed a pretty composition. Did not know the music was by Anand Shankar. Very enlightening 🙂
