Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 8

(1974 – Duet)

Getting on with Rafi Sb and the 1970s, here is this delightful duet from the year 1974. The film is ‘Insaaniyat’. Singing voices are Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur. The song is created by the team of Hasrat Jaipuri and Shankar Jaikishan.

The lead pair performing the song is Shashi Kapoor and Saira BanuMadhu. Shashi Kapoor used to carry the dubious distinction of being the busiest actor in those years. It is said that after the success of his films in the second part of 1960s, he got more offers than one could imagine. He did not refuse even one of them, and signed on the dotted line of every contract that came his way. He had enough pictures to keep him busy for a decade. The year is 1974, and Saira Banu has been married to Yusuf Khan i.e. Dilip Kumar for eight years now. And she is four years away from her retirement from films. The intimate expressions, especially in a swimming pool – makes one wonder, a little bit.

And the music director Shankar – he has been without his alter ego Jaikishan, for about three years. Jaikishan passed away in 1971. Shankar is trying hard to regain the lost magic, as well as the lost banners.

Another very vigorous composition made for the audience of 1970s – catchy and hummable.

Listen and enjoy.

Lyrics

mere yaar ki yaari dekh ke
ik soorat pyaari dekh ke
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
mohabbat ho gayi
mere yaar ki yaari dekh ke
ik surat pyaari dekh ke
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
mohabbat ho gayi

hoye
mere yaar ki yaari dekh ke
ik surat pyaari dekh ke
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
mohabbat ho gayi

ik sapna dekha karta thhaa
tujhe baahon mein le jaaunga
ik chalti phirti agni se
seene ki aag bujha loonga
ik sapna dekha karta thhaa
tujhe baahon mein le jaaunga
ik chalti phirti agni se
seene ki aag bujha loonga
mere yaar ki yaari dekh ke
ik soorat pyaari dekh ke
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
mohabbat ho gayi

mere yaar ki yaari dekh ke
ik soorat pyaari dekh ke
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
mohabbat ho gayi

mere yaar ki soorat kya kehna
har baat mujhe to maar gayi
wo ishq ki baazi jeet gaya
main husn ki baazi haar gayi
mere yaar ki soorat kya kehna
har baat mujhe to maar gayi
wo ishq ki baazi jeet gaya
main husn ki baazi haar gayi

mere yaar ki yaari dekh ke
ik soorat pyaari dekh ke
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
mohabbat ho gayi
mere yaar ki yaari dekh ke
ik soorat pyaari dekh ke
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
dil kehta hai
mohabbat ho gayi

मेरे यार की यारी देख के
इक सूरत प्यारी देख के
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
मोहब्बत हो गई
मेरे यार की यारी देख के
इक सूरत प्यारी देख के
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
मोहब्बत हो गई

होये
मेरे यार की यारी देख के
इक सूरत प्यारी देख के
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
मोहब्बत हो गई

इक सपना देखा करता था
तुझे बाहों में ले जाऊंगा
इक चलती फिरती अग्नि से
सीने की आगा बुझाऊँगा
इक सपना देखा करता था
तुझे बाहों में ले जाऊंगा
इक चलती फिरती अग्नि से
सीने की आगा बुझाऊँगा
मेरे यार की यारी देख के
इक सूरत प्यारी देख के
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
मोहब्बत हो गई

मेरे यार की यारी देख के
इक सूरत प्यारी देख के
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
मोहब्बत हो गई

मेरे यार की सूरत क्या कहना
हर बात मुझे तो मार गई
वो इश्क़ की बाज़ी जीत गया
मैं हुस्न की बाज़ी हार गई
मेरे यार की सूरत क्या कहना
हर बात मुझे तो मार गई
वो इश्क़ की बाज़ी जीत गया
मैं हुस्न की बाज़ी हार गई

मेरे यार की यारी देख के
इक सूरत प्यारी देख के
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
मोहब्बत हो गई
मेरे यार की यारी देख के
इक सूरत प्यारी देख के
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
दिल कहता है
मोहब्बत हो गई

Lovely song, Sudhir Ji. Great work is being done by you with this series “Rafi in 70s”. This was the period when Rafi doubted himself and even thought of quitting (as mentioned by Naushad), but all the while providing his fans and HFM lovely songs, some even better than those of his from earlier decades.

Cheers

Please make the correction. I think the heroine was Madhoo & not Saira banu, as mentioned. Madhoo hardly acted in a couple of movies!

somewhat clear video link:

Yes sure the heroine is MADHU, and not saira bano

I had the same doubt towards the end of the song that it was not Saira Bano, then I see the comments and so many noticed it too :).
