Phir wahi dard hai phir wahi jigar

When the song “baat koi matlab ki” from Apradhi Kaun (1957) was posted here yesterday, one of the comments on it – from Arunji – referred to another song, “phir wohi dard hai”, from this film that had not yet been posted.

I immediately responded to that comment, saying I would post this song too at the earliest.

Without any delay, here is the song. Sung by Manna Dey, picturised on Dhumal and Kumud Tripathi.

And how!

This is an absolute riot of a song. I’d never heard it before seeing the movie – and from the moment I heard it for the first time, I fell in love with it.

Without giving away any of the plot details (after all, it is a suspense film), I will just say that the lead-up to this song is that Kumud Tripathi discovers a certain secret of Dhumal. In order to keep him quiet, Dhumal tries to bribe him, offering to provide him with a daily dose of a “substance”.

When both of them first inhale the “substance”, they are transported to a different world, where their imagination runs riot. This song is part of that sequence.

Not only are the expressions of both Dhumal and Kumud absolutely top-class, the lyrics are also pretty nutty. They sing of pain, the night, their fears, the fact that they thought their sorrows were behind them, but the door of their heart was open, thus allowing the elephant to get away, but leaving his tail getting stuck in its wake. All absolute nonsense of course – but delightfully so. The type of stuff you could imagine happening to somebody in their situation. To add to this, Kumud Tripathi imagines he sees Kammo, Dhumal imagines he sees Lillian.

Full marks to Majrooh saab for coming up with such lyrics. It calls for imagination to come up with this sort of thinking in the first place, and then to come up with lyrics.

And full marks to Manna Dey too. Many know him for his classical songs but he has sung many light / comedy songs in his career. I would put this one right up there on this list, comparable with any other of his light songs. The way he enlivens the song with a brisk feel to it, the intonations, the way he gets right into it and convinces you that this is sung by guys under the influence – is just too good.

So in every sense, this song is just perfect. The picturisation, the singing, the lyrics, the lovely, lively music by Salil da – all combine beautifully to produce this fun song that totally deserves to be better-known.

So I am very happy to be able to bring this one to the notice of this blog’s readers.

A word about Salil Chaudhary in the context of Bimal Roy Productions.

Salil da was one of two regulars for Bimal Roy in Hindi films, the other being SD Burman (Devdas, Sujata, Bandini, Benazir).

Salil da’s compositions for Bimal Roy’s productions (whether directed by Bimal Roy or not) include Do Bigha Zameen, Naukri, Biraj Bahu, Parivar, Amaanat, Apradhi Kaun, Madhumati, Parakh, Usne Kaha Tha and Prem Patra.

Of these, with Madhumati, Salil Chaudhary struck gold. To this day, the songs of Madhumati are among the most popular ever in Hindi films. Among the others, the songs of Parakh (especially “o sajna”) were also quite popular. Some of the other films also had popular songs – like “apni kahani chhod ja” (Do Bigha Zameen), “chhota sa ghar hoga” (Naukri) and another song-riot (one of my Kishore favourites) “kuen mein kood ke mar jaan, yaar tum shaadi mat karna” (Parivar).

I don’t think the songs of Apradhi Kaun were all that popular – though I may be wrong. When I listen to this Manna Dey song, I see no reason why anybody would not fall in love with it. But then, sometimes some songs get overshadowed by others purely because of overcrowding. 1957 (when this film was released) was also the year of Naya Daur, Tumsa Nahin Dekha, Pyaasa , Dekh Kabira Roya, Paying Guest, Nau Do Gyarah and Mother India. So, amidst this embarrassment of riches, maybe the songs of Apradhi Kaun didn’t get much attention from the public.

Anyway it is our job, pleasure and honour, to bring such songs to the notice of the public. Whether they got noticed in their time, or went out of public memory as time went by, we bring them back into public memory through this blog.

Here’s the song – I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. And I really enjoyed it a LOT. 🙂

Song-Phir wahi dard hai phir wahi jigar(Apraadhi Kaun)(1957) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Majrooh sultanpuri, MD-Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics

Phir wahi dard hai
phir wahi jigar
phir wahi raat hai
phir wahi hai darr
hum samjhe gham kar gaya safar
dwaar dil ka khul gaya
haathi nikal gaya
dum reh gayi magar
phir wahi dard hai
phir wahi jigar
phir wahi raat hai
phir wohi hai darr
hum samjhe gham kar gaya safar
dwaar dil ka khul gaya
haathi nikal gaya
dum reh gayi magar

hum to samjhe dushmanon ka haath kat gaya
do dilon ke beech se pahaad hat gaya
hum to samjhe dushmanon ka haath kat gaya
do dilon ke beech se pahaad hat gaya
gham ke bhaari din gaye guzar
dwaar dil ka khul gaya
haathi nikal gaya
dum reh gayi magar
phir wahi dard hai
phir wahi jigar
phir wahi raat hai
phir wahi hai darr

tu dulhan banegi aur chadhegi raagini
tainu u u u
tain na aaaa
tu dulhan banegi aur chadhegi raagini
aayi pyaar ke madhur milan ki chaandni
tu dulhan banegi aur chadhegi raagini
aayi pyaar ke madhur milan ki chandni
Lekin
thhodi
reh gayi kasar
dwaar dil ka khul gaya
Haathi nikal gaya
dum reh gayi magar
phir wahi dard hai
phir wahi jigar
phir wahi raat hai
phir wahi hai darr
hum samjhe gham kar gaya safar
dwaar dil ka khul gaya
haathi nikal gaya
dum reh gayi magar

maine chaaha bhool jaoon
kyun rahoon kharaab
par tera ye husn jaise daal mein ghulaab
maine chaaha bhool jaoon
kyun rahoon kharaab
par tera ye husn jaise daal mein ghulaab
thhoda
thhoda
hai wahi asar
dwaar dil ka khul gaya
haathi nikal gaya
dum reh gayi magar
phir wahi dard hai
phir wahi jigar
phir wahi raat hai
phir wahi hai darr
hum samjhe gham kar gaya safar
dwaar dil ka khul gaya
haathi nikal gaya
dum reh gayi magarrrrrrrr

You are right; the songs were not popular. However it became matinee fav for its suspense.

Dear Rajaji,
Thank you very much for posting the song.
Like arun ji, I had also thought of this song while reading the post of “Baat kuchh matlab ki hai zaroor”.
For our younger readers who may not have seen the film, I may add that “Aparadhi Kaun” was released, its USP was its climax. If not the first, it was definitely one of the first films to run publicity campaigns to challenge the viewers to guess the identity of the perpetrator of the crime,(“Aparadhi” as the title suggests), and, also requesting them not to reveal the end to others after the show. Later on, this marketing strategy was also adopted for many suspense thrillers like, “Black Cat” – (Balraj Sahni in a role completely different from his image), “Gumnaam”, etc., but most notably, “Bees Saal Baad”, with Asit Sen being the common link.
Regards,

It’s amazing to me how many songs I like I find are written by Majroo sab. And how versatile a singer Manna Dey was. In this respect he was certainly underrated. AND Salil da’s music was always melodic, flowing and lilting. Many times one can recognise his work by just listening to the song and its flowing melody and rhythm. None like him! This has been on of my favourite fun songs for decades. BTW it’s ‘tu dulhan banegi aur chhedegi raagini’ (not chadhegi!!).
