Aaraam Ke Thhe Saathi Kya Kya

Names of so many artists echo back to us from the decades past.  Names that stir up memories of wonderful songs, sometimes happy, sometimes melancholic, but always very endearing.  Their words, their sounds and their music continues to mesmerize us, even though the creators themselves have long ago taken their final journey.

Today is the anniversary of passing away of poet Aarzoo Lakhnavi, one of the stalwarts of the earlier decades of Hindi cinema.

Aarzoo Sb belonged to a family of men of letters.  Both his father and elder brother were poets in the traditional ‘adab’.  They ensured that he had a good education in Urdu and Persian.  He was just twelve years when he started to write. In the mid 1930s, he came to Calcutta from Lucknow, and got associated with New Theatres.  His name appears in association with the stalwarts of that era – RC Boral and Pankaj Mullick, KL Saigal and Kanan Devi, for films like ‘Manzil’ (1936),’Mukti’ (1937), ‘Street Singer’ (1938), ‘Dushman’ and ‘Jawaani Ki Reet’ (1939),’Zindagi’ (1940), and ‘Doctor’ and ‘Lagan’ (1941).  The list of songs from these films reads like the top hits from New Theatres, that came from the partnership of these artists.

In 1942, he moved to Bombay, and continued to write lyrics and dialogues for films.  Sometime after the partition, he moved to Karachi, and joined Radio Pakistan.  But he continued to write occasionally for films out of Bombay.  He passed away in 1961.  As we browse the Geet Kosh, we find a song by him as late as 1967 – “Gore Gore Chaand Ke Mukh Par” from the film ‘Anita’.

Today’s song is from the 1949 film ‘Sipahiya’.  The music is by C Ramchandra and the singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar. The film was directed by Aspi for Super Pictures, Bombay.  The star cast for the film includes Madhubala, Agha, Husn Bano, Kanhaiya Lal, Ghulam Rasool, Ameerbai, Yakub, Altaf, Zillo Bai, MK Hasan amongst others.

I would request other friends and readers to please add more information about this film and the on screen performance of this song.


Song – Aaram Ke The Saathi Kya Kya (Sipahiya) (1949) Singers – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Aarzoo Lakhnavi, MD – C Ramchandra

Lyrics

bharosa kar na daulat par
na soorat par
na chaahat par
ye duniya hai sadaa rehti nahin
ho ek haalat par

aaraam ke the saathi kya kya
jab waqt pada to koi nahin
sab dost hain apne matlab ke
duniya mein kisi ka koi nahin
duniya mein kisi ka koi nahin

kal chalte the jo ishaaron par
kal chalte the jo ishaaron par
ab milti nahin hai unki nazar
ab milti nahin hai unki nazar
ya chaahne waale laakhon the
ya poochne waala koi nahin
aaraam ke the saathi kya kya
jab waqt pada to koi nahin
jab waqt pada to koi nahin

jaisa ke hai mujh par waqt pada
jaisa ke hai mujh par waqt pada
aisa na koi bebas hoga
aisa na koi bebas hoga
jeene ko shaara koi nahin
marne ko bahaana koi nahin
aaraam ke the saathi kya kya
jab waqt pada to koi nahin
jab waqt pada to koi nahin

भरोसा कर ना दौलत पर
ना सूरत पर
ना चाहत पर
ये दुनिया है सदा रहती नहीं
हो॰ ॰ एक हालत पर

आराम के थे साथी क्या क्या
जब वक़्त पड़ा तो कोई नहीं
सब दोस्त हैं अपने मतलब के
दुनिया में किसी का कोइ नहीं
दुनिया में किसी का कोइ नहीं

कल चलते थे जो इशारों पर
कल चलते थे जो इशारों पर
अब मिलती नहीं है उनकी नज़र
अब मिलती नहीं है उनकी नज़र
या चाहने वाले लाखों थे
या पूछने वाला कोई नहीं
आराम के थे साथी क्या क्या
जब वक़्त पड़ा तो कोई नहीं
जब वक़्त पड़ा तो कोई नहीं

जैसा के है मुझ पर वक़्त पड़ा
जैसा के है मुझ पर वक़्त पड़ा
ऐसा ना कोई बेबस होगा
ऐसा ना कोई बेबस होगा
जीने को सहारा कोई नहीं
मरने को बहाना कोई नहीं
आराम के थे साथी क्या क्या
जब वक़्त पड़ा तो कोई नहीं
जब वक़्त पड़ा तो कोई नहीं
