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

Kahaan jaate hain wo kahaan jaate hain

Posted on: September 26, 2013


Today (26 september 2013) has been a lean day so far with only one post appearing till now. We have some important anniversaries falling today and we cannot let them go by just like that notwithstanding the other pressing matters that I too have to contend with sometimes.

One of the important anniversary today happens to be the 90th birth anniversary of Dev Anand (26 September 1923 – 3 December 2011). We obviously cannot let this opportunity pass by without discussing songs picturised on Dev Saab.

If we were a desi channel, we would dig up our old programme of Dev Saab and play the usual Dev Saab songs and done with it. But we in this blog use a song only once and we always find some “new” song to discuss on the subsequent opportunities.

Here I would like to discuss a rare and special song. This song is rare on more than one count. This song is one of the few songs in which Dev saab is actually shown dancing. Yes, indeed !

In the past, we have discussed the fact that Rafi and Kishore Kumar were not the only playback singers for Dev Anand. Other singers who have sung for Dev Anand include G M Durrani, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood, Manna Dey, Hemant Kumar, Jagmohan, C Ramchandra, Dwijen Mukherji, Shankar Dasgupta, Bhupinder Singh etc. With this song, we add another name to the list of playback singers for Dev Anand. In this song Mahendra Kapoor sings for Dev Anand. It is the only occasion when Mahendra Kapoor sang for Dev Anand.

This song is a duet with Lata too singing alongwith chorus. The song is a folk dance song where Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman find themselves among villagefolks who speak Bangla. The song has a few Bangla lines (sung by chorus) which I am unable to fully decipher and I request our knowledgeable readers to help provided the correct Bangla lyrics.

I have provided the audio as well as the video of the song. The video of the song is longer than the audio.

This song came up a few years after “Solva Saal” (1958) which had the same lead pair and this song to me sound as if it could well be the continuation of the memorable dress change dialogue scene between Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman from “Solva Saal” (1958).

Dev saab may not have danced with such abandon in any other songs in his career. Perhaps he savoured the opportunity of lip syncing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice. 🙂

Lyrics

tomaar aamaar premer joa
rutahli pathali re
Sheema jaane na
tomaar aamaar preme joa
rutahli pathali re
Sheema jaane na

o kahaan jaate hain wo
kahaan jaate hain
behki nazar kisko khabar
pyaar ke raahi kahaan jaate hain
naya safar nayi dagar
jaane kyun kadam dagmagaate hain
kahaan jaate hain wo
kahaan jaate hain

tomaar aamaar preme joa
rutahli pathali re
Sheema jaane na

??? ???
naai re naan re naain re

mad bhari nigaah ne loot liya dil
loot liya dil
aaj mere pyaar ko mil gayi manzil
mil gayi manzil
jaadoogar saamne muskuraate hain
jaadoogar saamne muskuraate hain
naya safar nayi dagar
jaane kyun kadam dagmagaate hain
kahaan jaate hain wo
kahaan jaate hain

tomaar aamaar premer joa
rutaahli pathaali re
sheema jaane na

tumse mere saajna kya chhupaaun main
kya chhupaaun main
jal raha hai dil kahin
kho na jaaun main
kho na jaaun main
chori chori se kab baaj aate hain
chori chori se kab baaj aate hain

behki nazar kisko khabar
pyaar ke raahi kahaan jaate hain
ho kahaan jaate hain wo
kahaan jaate hain
tomaar aamaar premer joa
rutaahli pathaali re
sheema jaane na

??? ??
??? ???

aaj maine roop ko pyaar sikhaaya
pyaar sikhaaya
roop ne bhi pyaar ko haar pinhaaya
haar pinhaaya

mil ke do dil madhur geet gaate hain
mil ke do dil madhur geet gaate hain
behki nazar kisko khabar
pyaar ke raahi kahaan jaate hain
naya safar nayi dagar
jaane kyun kadam dagmagaate hain

ho kahaan jaate hain wo
kahaan jaate hain

tomaar aamaar preme joa
ruthali pathali re
sheema jaane na

tomaar aamaar preme joa
rutahli pathali re
sheema jaane na

tomaar aamaar preme joa
ruthali pathali
sheema jaane na

tomaar aamaar preme joa
rutahli pathali re
sheema jaane na

Fantastic, Atul! I am bowled over by your ability to locate songs which are obscure and yet meaningful or important, such as this one which has the rare sight of Dev Anand dancing, or trying to dance! In any case, I had a good laugh watching him prancing around. I think he repeated the same steps for Honthon mein aisi baat … in Jewel Thief, and that was the entire extent of his knowledge of dancing. Thanks for finding and posting this song for all of us to savor and enjoy.

Thanks for your appreciation. So it took a rare singer-actor combination for you to comment again. Or did Dev Anand’s dance effort did the trick ? 🙂

Dev like Raaj Kumar, Dharmendra, Sunny Deol etc..so many are born with 2 left feet. They have one set of steps. I think they will dance only when the heroine stamps their foot!!!
This song was famous in those days.

Wow! Just stumbled upon this song today when I saw a tag “Dev Anand songs by Mahendra Kapoor”.

Hearing this song for the first time – quite a pleasant tune, one that lingers in your mind.

I think it is “joar uthaali pathaali” (uthaali-pathaali = uthal puthal (ups and downs), I think). Just guessing.

Great to see Dev Anand dancing. 🙂 I think we can call it that.

Need to watch this video more often.

I also wondered why Shankar Jaikishen used Mahendra Kapoor for this song instead of Rafisaab. In fact, they used Talat Mahmood for other songs with male voice in this film (including the lovely “tum to dil ke taar chhed kar”).

Any reason they didn’t use Rafisaab? Film is released in 1961 – also the time when Rafisaab delivered hits for SJ with Junglee, Sasuraal and Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai (also with Dev).

Maybe Arunji or another knowledgeable person knows more? Or was it just a random occurrence to give Mahendra Kapoor a chance.

I am always interested in behind-the-scenes stories. 🙂

Well, it is really good to get a chance to watch a song, that rarely appeared on radio,, during those days, notwithstandind it’s appearance on T V, after so many years. I had heard it about 5 to 6 times in past till, say upto 1965, then , no. I enjoyed it after so many years, thanks to you.it is quite tolerable to see Dev Anand making a sicere effort to dance, only pointis, danci g was never a forte of Dev Anand.
Well, AK sir, here I am taking a chance to request your help me get as many songs as you can remember, and pass on that knowledge to me, if you don’tmind, and your generosity permitting.
About 4 months ago, in a very ignorant gesture, I had put forth my very non existent knowledge( as it was an information, rather than knowledge), about Guide song, “Kanto se khinch ke ye aanchal”, being a song that stared with Antara, and ended it’s first stanza on mukhada, and boasted that, it is only such a song.
Well, Sir, you had very gracefully, and very gently pointed out shallowness of my informatin, and advised me about another such a song, from yesteryears, “” khushiyon ke geet gaye ja, dilke tarane gaye ja,—-abhi to main javan hoon, as one more example of such a song.
Since then, I am trying to collect as many songs, of this peculiarity, as I can. Alas, I could find only one more song, from movie Baarish.–kehte hai pyar jisko”, by Lataji and Chitalkar.
Well, Sir, can you suggest me few more songs with this peculiarity, fron your deep oceanic knowledge of hindi film songs? I will be highly obliged. I keep collecting many diverse songs, and collect them, under such diverse group headings. Will you help me?
Well, along with Resp. AK sir, I very humbly request all the readers of this blog, to increase my collection, fron their collection of such gems.
I very earnestly regrett the trouble, that you all go through, trying to help me, and Thanking you all, anticipating your active, and fruitful generosity.
Good day to you all.
Deepak Desai.
