Ab se pehle to ye dil ki haalat na thhi

Posted on: April 20, 2013


“Nawab Sahib” (1978) was produced by Satnam Rohra and directed by Rajinder Singh Bedi. The movie had Rehana Sultan, Parikshit Sahni, Johnny Walkar, Omprakash, Bharat Bhushan, Farida jalal, Chaman Puri,Tamanna, Ranjeet,Chand Usmani etc in it.

The movie was not well known even during its time and by now it has emded up as a forgotten movie.

If this movie is still remembered today, then the credit should go to the song under discussion. As it is, I had haerd this song during its time, but I was not aware about its details at that time. It is only now that I have become aware that this song belonged to this movie.

This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar. It is picturised on Tamanna, with Rehana Sultan also present in the picturisation and Parikshit Sahni also visible in the picturisation.

Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Arjun.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

ab se pehle to ye dil ki haalat na thhi
ab se pehle to ye dil ki haalat na thhi
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gaya
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gaya
zindagi doosron ki amaanat na thhi
zindagi doosron ki amaanat na thhi
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gayaa
abse pehle to ye dil ki haalat na thhi
abse pehle to ye dil ki haalat na thhi
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gayaa
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gayaa

koi dekhe hamein,
koi chaahe hamein
aur saraahe hamein
koi dekhe hamein,
koi chaahe hamein
aur saraahe hamein
ye tamanna ye khwaahish
ye hasrat na thhi
ye tamanna ye khwaahish
ye hasrat na thhi
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gaya
ab se pehle,
pehle
ab se pehle to ye dil ki haalat na thi
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gaya
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gaya

apne andaaz par naaz karte thhe hum
humko apni kasam
apne andaaz par naaz karte thhe hum
humko apni kasam
gair se baat karne ki fursat na thhi
gair se baat karne ki fursat na thhi
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gayaa
ab se pehle,
pehle
ab se pehle to ye dil ki haalat na thi
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gaya
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gaya

ek but aaj kyunkar khuda ban gaya
mudda ban gaya
ek bhut aaj kyonkar khuda ban gaya
mudda ban gaya
humko to sar jhukaane ki aadat na thhi
humko to sar jhukaane ki aadat na thhi
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gaya
abse pehle,
pehle…
abse pehle to ye dil ki haalat na thhi
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gaya
aaj kya ho gaya,
aaj kya ho gaya

Nice song, but ruined by Usha Mangeshkar. Just like, Do Panchhi Do Tinkhe (Tapasya) ruined by Aarti Mukherjee and Tu Mera Kya Laage (Oonche Log) ruined by Salma Agha, but Kishore Kumar was there in both of them to save the day.

Like

Totally disagreed that the song under discussion is ruined by Ushaji rather, in my opinion the USP of this song is USHA MANGESHKAR.

fully agree,
Aarthi Mukherjee,Usha Mangeshkar,Dilraj Kaur,Hemlata,Salma agha,Anupama Deshpande,Sharada,shama chittara ya hemady,Sulakshana Pandit…….the list is endless, they all have their own distinctive sweet voice…….sab logon ka, unhika ek alag pehchaan hai

Thanks Sir for the endorsement. Much disappointed by the comment no.2 epsecially by the word “ruined” coz Ab se pehle as well as Do Panchhi Do Tinkhe are my all time favourite songs. Moreover if I have to use the word ruined then it will suited best for most of (not all) so-called singers of my generation i.e. 21st century’s singers.

In fact, during my schoolgoing days, subah ko vividhbharti wale 9 or 9.30 ko ye gaana aksar bajaayaa karte the,
main iss awaaz ki khanak ko aur uss subah ki palon ko ab bhi yaad kartaa hoon
chaahe woh
Tarana ka usha ji ka gaanaa Sultana sultana, mera naam hai sultanaa
aur
Suresh wadkar ke saath ka woh duet “shaam rangeen huyi hai,tere aanchal ki tarhaa”from C.Arjun`s kanoon aur mujrim ho

Each singer has it own charm and stamp of originality. If they try to sing like popular singers we will be the first to brand them as copycats.

Just like certain actors dont work in particular roles, certain singers dont work for certain types of songs. Thats an individual opinion, of course.

Today suddenly out of the blue, I began singing this song. 🙂
After decades. 🙂
So I rushed to see whether it had been posted here – and of course it has been posted. I had no clue which movie it was from, but I knew it was from my highschool days. 🙂

Kya baat hai Raja ji! Ab itne saalon baad ye gaana “Ab se pehle to ye dil ki haalat na thhi, aaj kya ho gaya….” gaa rahe ho! 🙂
Take it easy.
