“Baap Re Baap” (1955) was produced and directed by A R Kardar. The movie had Smriti Biswas, Kishore Kumar, Jayant, Ulhas, Maruti, Leela Misra, Chand Usmani, Banerji etc in it.

Seven songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the eighth song from the movie.

This song is a melancholic song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle. The song is lip synced by a lady whom I am unable to identify despite having watched her several times in the past. 🙂 I know that I need to work harder at identifying them. But then I need to work harder at many other things as well, viz to learn how to operate smart phones, for instance. I will hopefully become smart enough to operate smart phones and identify old actresses, but in the meanwhile I reqest our already smart and knowledgeable readers to help identify the actress lip syncing the song and the other lady accompanying her.
PS-They are Chaand Usmani and Amir Bano, as identified by our knowledgeable readers.

Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.


Song-Ab ye bata jaayen kahaan (Baap Re Baap)(1955) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

ab ye bata jaayen kahaan
qismat ke thukraaye huye
gham se ghabraaye huye
jeene se uktaaye huye
ab ye bata jaayen kahaan

raasta anjaan manzil ka pata kuchh bhi nahin
apni raah mein andhere ke siwa kuchh bhi nahin
gham ke hain ghanghor baadal door tak chhaaye huye
ab ye bata jaaye kahaan
ye bata jaayen kahaan
ab ye bata jaaye kahaan

apne armaanon ka lut’ta kaarwaan dekha kiye
aashiyaan jalta raha hum bezabaan dekha kiye
chand aansoo reh gaye palkon pe tharraye huye
ab ye bata jaayen kahaan
ye bata jaayen kahaan
ab ye bata jaayen kahaan

kya yahi duniya hai ae duniya ke rakhwaale bata
kya yahi insaaf hai ae aasmaan waale bata
ji rahe hain saikdon jeene se sharmaaye huye
ab ye bata jaayen kahaan
ye bata jaayen kahaan
ab ye bata jaayen kahaan

ab ye bata jaayen kahaan qismat ke thukraaye huye
gham se ghabraaye huye jeene se uktaaye huye
ab ye bata jaayen kahaan
