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

Piya bina piya bina

Posted on: February 24, 2013

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

We are having exactly 400 songs composed by S D Burman, 647 of Majrooh and 2210 songs by Lata Mangeshkar in the blog. I am wondering exactly how many of these songs composed by S D Burman are written by Majrooh and sung by Lata. If such an information about all songs of S D Burman or Lata or Majrooh was available in one place in the excel sheet format, than it would be so easy to access that figure.

I remember that Atul ji is also maintaining an excel sheet with all details of the songs posted in the blog. He has generously shared the same with me. The list has complete data of all songs posted upto 22/02/2013.

It is seen in that among the 400 S D Burman songs posted here, 103 songs are by SDB-Majrooh combo and 109 songs of SDB-Lata combo(excluding songs of ‘Tere Ghar ke Saamne). That means more than 25% of S D Burman songs posted here are written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and around 27 % songs are featuring Lata Mangeshkar. There are a few more great songs from this combo that are still remaining to be posted, for e.g. the songs of Abhimaan.

Here is a list of songs by SDB-Majrooh- Lata team already posted :

5 Ab to hai tumse har khushi apni Abhimaan 1973
6 Hothon mein aisi baat main dabaa ke chali aayi Jewel Thief 1967

18 Sheeshe ka ho ke patthar ka dil Baat Ek Raat Ki 1962
19 Tumhre sang to rain bitaayi kahaan bitaaubn din Sagina 1974
20 Palkon ke peechhe se kyaa tumne kah daala Talaash 1969
21 Dil pukaare aare aare Jewel Thief 1967

This list has some fabulous songs from Jewel Thief, Paying Guest, Teen Deviyaan etc. and my favourites from Abhimaan too. S. D. Burman made a great team with Lata, Rafi and Kishore. For that matter he made a great team with Asha too during his tiff with Lata, which is seen in the songs of Sujata and Bandini. But he went back to Lata after their differences were resolved.

So here is another song by this team of S. D. Burman, Majrooh Sultanpuri and Lata Mangeshkar from Abhimaan. Jaya Bhaduri is singing this song live at a radio station for some special occassion, and Amitabh Bachhan refuses to accompany her. And instead he goes to his actress friend ‘Bindu’s house. What he is doing actually at Bindu’s house is to try and drown himself in whisky and to forget the turmoil in his life. There is a term in urdu for such situation/action, i.e. ‘ gham galat karna ‘ . It might mean ‘take a wrong route to avoid one troubles’ roughly. As ‘Anjaan’ has said in a song picturized on Amitabh Bachhan in ‘Sharaabi’ (1984)

nasha sharaab mein hotaa to naachti botal,
nashe mien kaun nahin hai mujhe bataao zaraa…..

So here is a special song from the movie ‘Abhimaan’ which some of us were waiting to see in this blog . It is a song conveying sadness and restrain. Both Jaya Bhaduri and Lata are performing exceptionally, for I feel the playback singers are also part of excellent acting done by the actors on screen during singing such songs.



Song-Piya bina piya bina (Abhimaan)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-S D Burman


aaa aaaaaa
aaaa aaaaa
piyaa binaa
piya bina piya binaa
baaje na
baaje na baaje na
piyaa binaa
piya bina piya binaa

piya aise rootthe
ke honton se mere
sangeet rootthaa
piya aise rootthe
ke honton se mere
sangeet rootthaa
kabhi jab main gaaun
lage mere man ka
har geet jhoothaa
aise bichhde
ho oo ooooo
aise bichhde
mose rasiyaa
piyaa binaa
piya bina piya binaa
baaje na
baaje na baaje na
piyaa binaa
piya bina piya binaa

tumhaari sadaa bin
nahin ek sooni
mori nagariyaa
tumhaari sadaa bin
nahin ek sooni
mori nagariyaa
ke chup hai papeeha
mayur bol bhoole
ban mein sanawaariya
din hai soona
aa aa aaaaa
din hai soona
sooni ratiyaan
piyaa binaa
piya bina piya binaa
baaje na
baaje na baaje na
piyaa binaa
piya bina piya binaa

I am totally immersing myself in these lovely melodies from Abhimaan (1973). Thanks for the lovely post nahm ji. Back to the song..


What is the meaning of ‘bassiya’? I ve always wanted to ask.


Peevesie’s Mom ji,
