Kya meri prem kahaani nadiya se bichhda paani

Posted on: July 31, 2013

Today (31 july 2013) is Mumtaz’s 66 th birth anniversary. I find it an interesting coincidence that her peak in Hindi movies coincided with the peak of Rajesh Khanna. Mumtaz bowed out of movie industry just as Rajesh Khanna lost his crown in mid 1970s.

Rajesh Khanna- Mumtaz pair was easily the most popular pair of its time. The duo were last seen in “Prem Kahaani” (1975). So this movie was the swansong of this pair.

Here is a song from “Prem Kahaani” (1975). This song is sung by Lata and it is picturised as a get together song where Mumtaz is asked to sing this song. The picturisation also shows Shashi Kapoor and others, with Rajesh Khanna trying to get a peek in from the outside.

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.



Song-Kya meri prem kahaani nadiya se bichhda paani (Prem Kahaani)(1975) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

sharm aati hai
nayaa ghar hai
main dulhan
baat mann ki jo hai
ik paheli
rehne do
isse tum paheli
kyaa meri prem kahaani ee
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani
kyaa meri prem kahaani ee
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani

chhoot jaati ee
hai babul ki galiyaan
door sanjog
le jaate hain ae
phool banti hai
jab khil ke kaliyaan aan
todke log
le jaate hain
ek raajaa le aayaa
banaake mujhe raani
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani

jaane kiss kiss gali se guzar ke ae
ghar saajan ke
baaraat aayee
sab saathi
puraane wahin chhoote ae ae
yaad unnki mere saath aayee
yeh jo aansoo hain
ye hain unhee ki nishaani
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani

gaayaa karti ee
jo mayke mein dulhan
ab woh geet yaad aate hain ae
jiss tarhaa yaad
aate hain dushman
iss tarhaa meet yaad aate hain
jaane nikalengi kab dil se
yaadein puraani
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani
kyaa meri prem kahaani ee
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani
nadiyaa se bichhdaa paani

Wow, I didn’t even realise it is Mumtaz’s birthday today. Thanks to this blog, we don’t miss out anniversaries anymore.

Happy birthday, Mumu! 🙂

Btw, Atul, Prem Kahani was not the last movie of Rajesh-Mumtaz together. They were to be seen together in Aaina (1977) also.


Happy Birthday Mumu.

She lit up the screen with her sparkling presence. She was supremely confident in front of the camera. I love watching her on screen. Dancing/romance/comedy/tragedy/emotional drama she excelled at all.

She worked very hard for her success and deserved every bit of it.


Prakash ji, thanks for this song !! I like this song very much, may be because of Lata ji’s beautiful rendition of the same.
I had its draft ready in my ‘draft folder’, which has been ‘deleted’ now.
Thanks …!
