Pyaar kar liya to kya pyaar hai khata nahin

When I look back at my formative years (viz 1960s and 1970s), I find that my musical tastes at that time were quite different from what it is at present. Those were the days when I only liked new songs and scoffed at old songs. Old songs for me were any songs recorded before 1967 and composed by music directors of the generations older than that of R D Burman. It was during mid 1970s that I decided to try and like “old” songs. It was then that I discovered music directors of the earlier generation, viz O P Nayyar, C Ramchandra etc and forced myself to try and like their music, all the time comparing their music to R D Burman’s music and wondering why the older generation music directors cold not compose music like R D Burman. 🙂

When I listened to the songs of “Paakeezaah”(1972), I could tell that the songs of this movie were composed by older generation music directors. Though the songs of “Paakeezaah” were hummable (as I would reluctantly admit), I disliked such music, considering them old school music.

A few years later, I found another movie with old style music becoming popular among music lovers. The movie was “Kabhi Kabhi” (1976). Listening to the music, I could tell that here was another music director who belonged to the older generation who had failed to “change” with time. 🙂 It was only then that I became aware of this music director called Khayyaam. I was not surprised to note that he had worked in very few movies and his last movie as a music director had come in 1960s.

I reluctantly liked the songs of “Kabhi Kabhi”(1976). I began to “like” the music better when I realised that this movie had a few Kishore Kumar songs too in it. Though nowhere close to the kinds of songs that Kishore Kumar had sung for R D Burman and others, I gave Khayyaam “marks” for “trying”. 🙂

“Kabhi Kabhi”(1976) had ten songs in it. I found, much to my pleasant surprise, that nine out of the ten songs of this movie have already been covered. It helped that two of the songs are in fact multiple version songs which add up to five songs in HFGK and which have been covered in just two writeups in this blog.

Here is the tenth and final song from “Kabhi Kabhi”(1976). This song is one of the three songs of the movie that had the voice of Kishore Kumar. This song is a Kishore Kumar solo. It is lip synced by Rishi Kapoor and it is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Nitu Singh as an “expression of love” genre of song.

Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyaam , of course.

With this song, “Kabhi Kabhi”(1976) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog, and becoming the first movie to join this list (of 570 odd movies) in 2015.

Song-Pyaar kar liya to kya pyaar hai khata nahin (Kabhi Kabhi)(1976) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Khayyaam

Lyrics

oye
pyaar kar liya to kya
pyaar hai khata nahin
pyaar kar liya to kya
pyaar hai khata nahin
teri meri umr mein
kisne ye kiya nahin
pyar kar liya to kya
pyaar hai khata nahin

tere honth mere honth
sil gaye to kya huaa
tere honth mere honth
sil gaye to kya huaa
dil ki tarah jism bhi
mil gaye to kya huaa
dil ki tarah jism bhi
mil gaye to kya huaa
is se pahle kya kabhi
ye sitam huaa nahin
pyaar kar liya to kya aa
pyaar hai khata nahin

main bhi hoshmand hoon
tu bhi hoshmand hai
us tarah jiyenge hum
jis tarah pasand hai
haan
main bhi hoshmand hoon
tu bhi hoshmand hai
us tarah jiyenge hum
jis tarah pasand hai
unki baat kyun sunen
jinse waasta nahin
pyaar kar liya to kya
pyaar hai khata nahin

rasm kya riwaaz kya
dharm kya samaaj kya
dushmanon ka khauf kyun
doston ki laaj kya
rasm kya riwaaz kya
dharm kya samaaj kya
dushmanon ka khauf kyun
doston ki laaj kya
ye wo shauk hai ke jis se
koi bhi bacha nahin
pyaar kar liya to kya
pyaar hai khata nahin
pyaar kar liya to kya
pyaar hai khata nahin
teri meri umr mein
kisne ye kiya nahin
pyaar kar liya to kya aa
pyaar hai khata nahin

@ Atul ji – Congratulations on covering all songs of ‘Kabhi Kabhi – 1976’ and its joining to the ‘list of movies – all songs covered’ 🙂
Thanks for a song penned by Sahir Ludhianvi after so many days ( I was thinking for sending you a request / farmaish for the that : )
Nice write up, but unlike you I think I develop the liking for old songs in my formative years (74-83) 🙂 itself 🙂
