Zamaane Se Niraala Hai Meri Ulfat Ka Afsaana

OK, so there are many a piano songs in Hindi films, and we have seen many an actor play the piano on screen. In this song, I see Pran playing the piano. This is the first time I have seen this happen on screen. Other friends and readers may comment on this, but for me, this is the first time.

The film is ‘Pehli Jhalak’ from 1954. Kishore Kumar and Vijyantimala are the lead actors in this Hindi remake. The film is produced under the banner of Jagat Pictures productions, and is directed by MV Raman. Besides the lead pair and Pran, the cast of actors includes Dara Singh, Shammi, Roopa Verma, Jawahar Kaul, Shivraj, Kamlakant, Om Prakash etc.  Our dear Arun ji Deshmukh has provided a synopsis of this film in his article on another song from this film “Achhi Soorat Hui Ya Museebat“, just about ten days ago.

In its time, this film was music blockbuster, with as many as ten songs. One of the songs “Zameen Chal Rahi Aasmaan Chal Raha Hai” in the voice of Hemant Kumar, is a two part song. The creator pair of all the songs in this film is Rajinder Krishan weilding the pen and the C Ramchandra on the music direction. All the songs of this film are very listen-able.

On screen, the song is performed by Vijayantimala. Pran is also present in the frame. Apparently, there is something in the coat pocket of Pran that Vijayantimala is trying to pilfer, and she is singing this song to distract his attention from her intentions. The song starts with her sitting at the piano and singing. After one ‘antaraa’, she makes Pran sit down and play the piano, while she tries to ruffle through the pockets of Pran’s coat lying on the couch. He is facing away, but every so often he turns around to look at her, and she has to stop the searching task, and show as if she is just enjoying the singing. Interesting situation – when the song started, I was wondering why is she singing for Pran. But as the song progresses, I realize she is just playing a ruse.

Anyway, this is the eighth song of this film to be showcased here. Listen and enjoy.

aaaa aaaaa
aaaa aaaaa aaaaaa aaaa aaaaa

zamaane se
nirala hai
meri ulfat ka afsaana
meri ulfat ka afsaana
bulaati hai
shama lekin
nahi aata hai parwaana
nahi aata hai parwaana

ye kaisa pyar hai
kaisi mohabbat
kaisi chaahat hai
ye kaisa pyar hai
kaisi mohabbat
kaisi chaahat hai
suraahi paas aati hai
suraahi paas aati hai
khichaa jaata hai paimana
khichaa jaata hai paimana
zamaane se
nirala hai
meri ulfat ka afsaana
meri ulfat ka afsaana

aaaa aaaaa aaaaa
aaaaa aaaaa
aaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa

kisi din wo bhi dekhenge
asar dard e mohabbat ka
kisi din wo bhi dekhenge
asar dard e mohabbat ka
rahenge kab talak
wo apne diwaane se begana
rahenge kab talak
wo apne diwaane se begana
wo apne diwaane se begana
zamaane se
nirala hai
meri ulfat ka afsaana
meri ulfat ka afsaana

zara dekho zara samjho
ishare dil ki dhadkan ke
zara dekho zara samjho
ishare dil ki dhadkan ke
ye armaano bhara dil hai
ye armaano bhara dil hai
tumhaara hi to diwaana
tumhaara hi to diwaana
zamaane se
nirala hai
meri ulfat ka afsaana
meri ulfat ka afsaana

आssss
आsss आssss
आsss आssss
आsss आssss
आsss आssss आssss आsss आsssss

ज़माने से
निराला है
मेरी उलफत का अफसाना
मेरी उलफत का अफसाना
बुलाती है
शमा लेकिन
नहीं आता है परवाना
नहीं आता है परवाना

ये कैसा प्यार है
कैसी मोहब्बत
कैसी चाहत है
ये कैसा प्यार है
कैसी मोहब्बत
कैसी चाहत है
सुराही पास आती है
सुराही पास आती है
खिंचा जाता है पैमाना
खिंचा जाता है पैमाना
ज़माने से
निराला है
मेरी उलफत का अफसाना
मेरी उलफत का अफसाना

आsss आssss आssss
आsss आssss
आsss आssss आssss आsss आsssss

किसी दिन वो भी देखेंगे
असर दर्द ए मोहब्बत का
किसी दिन वो भी देखेंगे
असर दर्द ए मोहब्बत का
रहेंगे कब तलक
वो अपने दीवाने से बेगाना
रहेंगे कब तलक
वो अपने दीवाने से बेगाना
वो अपने दीवाने से बेगाना
ज़माने से
निराला है
मेरी उलफत का अफसाना
मेरी उलफत का अफसाना

ज़रा देखो ज़रा समझो
इशारे दिल की धड़कन के
ज़रा देखो ज़रा समझो
इशारे दिल की धड़कन के
ये अरमानों भरा दिल है
ये अरमानों भरा दिल है
तुम्हारा ही तो दीवाना
तुम्हारा ही तो दीवाना
ज़माने से
निराला है
मेरी उलफत का अफसाना
मेरी उलफत का अफसाना

Pran has a diary that holds dark secrets from the past, which he will soon misuse for blackmail – changing everyone’s lives forever. Vmala tries to steal it by hoodwinking Pran.
Om Prakash has a takiya qalaam ‘ladki dekhenge’ whenever Jawahar Kaul appears before him.
