Jaa jaa jaa re tujhe ham jaan gaye

Posted on: April 29, 2013


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

This is the Rafi-Lata Duet from Film ‘Sehra” (1963). It is picturized on Sandhya and Prashant. I saw this song for the first time while looking for desert songs in this film. And it is clear from the picturization that it was a precursor to this song in Sangam (1964).

In this song Sandhya disguised as a boy is singing from the riverbank and Prashant is swimming in the river. The roles were reversed in the Sangam song with Vijyanti Mala swimming and Raj Kapoor high and dry sitting on a tree.

The song is written by Hasrat Jaipuri and music is by Ramlal. Tune is somewhat similar to some folk song.

Just like Raj Kapoor in ‘Sangam’ song, here also the hero is playing a music instrument, which looks like Shehnai. It is one similarity too many. There must be story somewhere about these two songs. ‘Bol radha bol’ is written by Shailendra, so is it possible that Hasrat Jaipuri had written this song for ‘Sangam’ and it was rejected by either Raj Kapoor or Shankar Jaikishan in favour of ‘Bol radha bol’. So it is utilized here in ‘Sehra’ in a similar situation. This kind of thing can happen.

Lyrics

ho oo ooo
kali kab tak chhupegi
ek bhanvre ki nigaahon se
chamak jaati hai bijli
khud hi in gehri
ghataaon se
baras padti hai shabnam
aap hi tthandi fizaaon se
ea ea ea
ja ja
arey jaa jaa
ja ja ja re
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye
kitne paani mein ho
pehchaan gaye
tum
kitne paani mein ho
pehchaan gaye
jaa
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye

ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye

aa aa aaa
kinaare aa ke
lehron ka
ishaara dekhne waale
tujhe apni khabar bhi hai
nazaara dekhne waale
tamaasha khud na ban jaana
tamaasha dekhne waale
ae ae ae ae
ja ja
ja ja ja re
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye
kitne paani mein ho
pehchaan gaye
jaa
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye

aa aaa aaaa
badal ke bhes parwaane ka
shamaa jhilmilaati hai
nasheeli shaam ke parde mein
subaha muskuraati hai
woh shola ho ke chingaari
machal kar naache jaati hai
to dhadakte dil se mere
madhbhari aawaaz aati hai ae ae
ae ae ae ae
ja ja
arey ja ja
ja ja ja re
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye
kitne paani mein ho
pehchaan gaye
jaa
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye

aa aaa aaaa
shamaa se bach ke rehnaa
saare tan man to jalaa degi
woh shola ho ke chingaari
lagi mein aur lagaa degi
subaah jab muskuraayegi
to woh toofaan utthaa degi
khulegaa shaam ka parda
wo tujh ko bhi mitaadegi ee
ee
ee
aaa aaa
aree ja ja
ja ja ja re
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye

ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye
kitne paani mein ho
pehchaan gaye

tum
kitne paani mein ho
pehchaan gaye
jaa
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye

According to me, this song comes under the category of “how come, this song was not posted in the blog ?”category.
Nice song, without knowing this song left a strong impression on me, because of repeated listening to this song on radio, during my childhood.

Thank you nahm ji

longer audio link; having an extra stanza which is given below the link

Aa aa aa aa aa
Ye kaali reshmi zulfen
Haay
Haay
Sharaabi nayan ke pyaale
Ke dil haal keh dete hain
Dono ye hi matwaale
Nahin darte
Kisise
Jeet kar bhi haarnewaale
Qayamat ki nazar rakhte hain lekin
Taadnewaale ae ae ae ae
ja
aree
ja ja ja re
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye

aa aa aa aa aa
ye zulfen to nahin hain
dasnewaale naag hain kaale
ye do aankhen nahin hain
zeher se bharpoor hain pyaale
tu aankhen rakh ke bhi behosh hain
are taadnewaale
qayamat saamne hain
jaan ke pad jaayenge laale ae ae ae ae
ae
ja ja
ja ja ja re
ja ja ja re
tujhe ham jaan gaye

thanks Nahm ji for the post and the song !!!
