Meri jaan tu khafa hai to kya huaa

Posted on: March 4, 2013


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

Teesra Kaun has a plot, which sounds to be very Hitchcockian. It is of a man on the run after being falsely accused of robbery cum murder. One would think, such a story wouldn’t give much of an opportunity for songs. But this being a Hindi film, there are in fact many beautiful songs in it. The music director being R D Burman. This song particularly doesn’t sound R D Burmanesque. I would have thought it to be from Shankar-Jaikishan.

In the 60s the hero of the Hindi films, in his quest of courting the heroine, often got lots of opportunities to masquerade. To put on a guise of an Arab was one of the most popular one. Feroze Khan, the hero of the film, uses this trick once again successfully with Kalpana (the heroine). How and why? It is a Hindi phillum yaar!

Song-Meri jaan tu khafaa hai to kyaa huaa(Teesra Kaun)(1965) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

ho o, meri jaan
meri jaan tu khafaa hai to kyaa huaa
ye sitam ye adaa hai to kya huaa
main to bas ek deewaanaa hoon
husn waale to khudaa se bhi rooth jaate hain
husn waale to khudaa se bhi rooth jaate hain

ye husn ki hai
aadat puraani
tadpe mohabbat
tarse jawaani
hothon pe shiqwe
aankhon me paani
ham aashikon ki
hai ye nishaani
ho o meri jaan tu khafaa hai to kya huaa
ye sitam ye adaa hai to kya huaa
main to bas ek deewaanaa hoon
husn waale to khudaa se bhi rooth jaate hain
husn waale to khudaa se bhi rooth jaate hain

main bhi yahaan hoon
tu bhi yahin hai
us pe sanam ye
rut bhi haseen hai
aisa sitamgar
haay
koi kahin hain
aise mein tere
lab pe nahin hai
ho o meri jaan tu khafaa hai to kya huaa
ye sitam ye adaa hai to kya huaa
main to bas ek deewaanaa hoon
husn waale to khudaa se bhi rooth jaate hain
husn waale to khudaa se bhi rooth jaate hain

Lovely Harvey. I translated a song or two for Tom from this film. As Atul says, B (ya C) grade film with an A grade music 🙂
