“Jhoola” (1962) was produced by N Vasudeva Menon and directed by K Shankar for Vasu Films, Madras. The movie had Sunil Dutt, Vyjayanthimala, Rajendranath, Pran, Sulochana Latkar, Tuntun, Manmohan Krishna, Indira Bansal, Mohan Choti, Raj Mehra, Leela Mishra, Randhir, Achala Sachdev, Kusum Thakur, Ravikant, Kesari, Ganapati Bhatt, Wahab Kashmiri, Master Shahid etc in it.

Six songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the seventh and final song from “Jhoola” (1962). This song is a rare song in the sense that this song is sung by Rafi ! As it is, Salil Chaudhary, the music director of “Jhoola” (1962) used Rafi’s voice quaite sparingly. Out of 178 Salil Chaudhary compositions in the blog, Rafi’s voice figures in only twenty of them.

This song is quite a brief song, only four lines long and lasting barely one minute. Only the audio of this song is available. Perhaps this song is used in the movie as a background song sometime towards the end of the movie. Even then this song may have been recorded as a full fledged song at least as a record. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this song.

Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist.

With this song, “Jhoola” (1962) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Insaan ki zindagi hai(Jhoola)(1962) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Salil Chaudhary


insaan ki zindagi hai
dukh-sukh kaa ek jhoolaa
anjaam uskaa dukh hai
ae ae
sukh mein jo dukh ko bhoolaa
aa aa aa

No other singer could sang such a song. Salilda had to fall back on the trusted Rafi.


Here’s the video:
