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

Kehne ko hain taiyyaar magar kaise kahen hain

Posted on: August 20, 2014


This article is written by Mahesh Mamadapur, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a contributor to this blog. This article is meant to be posted in atulsongaday.me. If this article appears in sites like lyricstrans.com and ibollywoodsongs.com etc then it is piracy of the copyright content of atulsongaday.me and is a punishable offence under the existing laws.

In the good old days of radio, there often used to arise, a situation when one would like a song, but would miss the announcement of the name of the film. In such cases, one had to wait for the song to be played again. Now with the advent of internet, things have become much simpler where you can actually search, download, store and listen to a particular song often.

I had quite a struggle with such a situation having missed hearing the name of the film quite a few times. When I became accustomed to Google search, I did trace it by the first few words of the song, singers etc. After downloading, the song unfortunately got lost in the huge cache of songs I have in my laptop.
When I decided to try posting this song, I had again lost memory of the name of the film. I had to search a lot in the folders. The find option was also of not much use since the name of the song was with all words joined together etc.

Googling again, I now remember the name of the film very vividly and intend never to forget it. It’s a duet from the film Kamal released in 1949. The year 1949 was a watershed in the history of Hindi Film Music, with several hits encompassing many singers, music directors and lyric writers.
Barsaat, Andaz, Mahal, Dillagi, Shabnam, Badi Bahen, Patanga, Dulari etc. were amongst the top grossers. There were many other films in 1949 with very good music and songs but are either forgotten or less popular in comparison with the above mega hits. One such movie was Kamal with a duet by Geeta Dutt and Surendra.
I am sure many readers may not recollect the combo of singers as well as the film. Geeta Dutt and Surendra have sung only 5 duets together in 3 films and this blog has 2 songs of them covered.

The film ‘Kamal’ was produced under the banner of Hind Kamal Chitra, Bombay, and directed by Surya Kumar. The list of actors includes Surendra, Nayantara, Jeevan, Madan Puri, Mahendra, Lalita Rao, Munshi Khanjar, Bibi Bai, Yashoda Nandan Joshi, Mohna etc.

The music of this film was scored by SD Burman. There are 10 songs in this film, shared amongst GS Nepali, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and Prem Dhawan. This particular song is written by G.S.Nepali.

The song itself is a blue-mood and extremely melodious romantic duet with Geeta Dutt dominating the song in terms of time space.

I am sure this short and sweet chirpy rare song will cause many a hearts to flutter.

Lyrics

kehne ko hain taiyar
magar kaise kahen hum
kehne ko hain taiyar
magar kaise kahen hum
karte hain tumhen pyaar
magar kaise kahen hum
ji magar kaise kahen hum
karte hain tumhen pyaar
magar kaise kahen hum
ji magar kaise kahen hum

do din ki abhi baat
mulaakaat hamaari
mulaakaat hamaari
do din ki abhi baat
mulaakaat hamaari
mulaakaat hamaari
aankhon mein chha ke reh gayi
tasveer tumhari
tumko diya dil dard bhi
chup-chap sahen hum
tumko diya dil dard bhi
chup-chap sahen hum
karte hain tumhe pyaar
magar kaise kahen hum
ji magar kaise kahen hum

kayi baar lage kehne
to sharma ke reh gaye
sharma ke reh gaye
kayi baar lage kehne
to sharma ke reh gaye
sharma ke reh gaye
kehna thha hamen aur bhi kuchh
aur keh gaye
kehna yahi hai mauj mein
ik saath bahen hum
kehna yahi hai mauj mein
ik saath bahen hum
karte hain tumhen pyaar
magar kaise kahen hum
ji magar kaise kahen hum

o o o o
rehte hain aas pas
phir bhi aas adhhoori
phir bhi aas adhhoori

oo o o
rahte hai aas pas
phir bhi aas adhoori
phir bhi aas adhoori
hum sochte hai kab mite
ye paas ki doori
ye paas ki doori

do dil hai mile kyun nahin
ek hoke rahe hum
do dil hai mile kyun nahin
ek hoke rahen hum
karte hai tumhe pyaar
magar kaise kahen hum
ji magar kaise kahen hum

Maheshji,
Kamal had 12 songs mostly GD/Surendra combo except one song by Meena Kapoor and Motilal>pyara hai sama dear come to me.
Surendra and GD combo in Meri Kahani-1948
>bulbul ko mila phul to nadi ko kinara
>wada karke kisi se
I could find only above 2; which are the other 2?

Nitin ji,
Your own comment on 18th August for a Surendra song from the same film had you writing 3/10 format to be included, indicating posted and total number of songs respectively. So I think its only 10 and not 12.

This beautiful site dedicated to Getta Dutt will give you the list sought.

Maheshji,
You were right on both the score. Thanks

Thanks for the melodious duet Mahesh Ji.
I think this is only film Surendra sang for S D Burman. 3 solos and one duet.

Venkataraman ji,

Chittor Vijay (1947), was a film with MD as SBD and also had Surendra playing a role in it. I cannot confirm if he has sung any songs in it.

I also feel this particular film is yet to debut on the blog.( I checked very hastily and could be wrong).

Mahesh Ji,
You are right. Completely went off my radar. Since Surendra was in the cast there is every possibility that he must have rendered a song or two.
But no information on the eight songs of Chittor Vijay are available.
Thanks a lot

I mean the information on singers
