Ab is mar mar ke jeene se

This article is meant to be posted in If this article appears in sites like and etc then it is piracy of the copyright content of and is a punishable offence under the existing laws.

“Aakaash”(1953) was produced by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas and directed by Manmohan Sabir for Manmohan Films, Bombay. the movie had Balraj Sahni, Shammi, Nadira, Manmohan Krishna, Badri Prasad, Jillobai, Neeta, N Trivedi, Agha etc in it.

Five songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the sixth song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata. Manmohan Sabir is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Only the audio of this song is available. This movie had Meena Kapoor and Lata as the two female playback singers who sang two songs each. It is difficult to guess how and on whom this song was picturised. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

This movie had seven songs in it. HFGK mentions the seventh song of the movie as “yeh mast nazar shokh ada kiske liye hai”. This song is described as a duet sung by unknown male and female voices. The lyricist of this song is also unknown. I have not been able to locate this song. So unless this song becomes available, “Aakash”(1953) will remain one song short of having all its songs covered in the blog.


Song-Ab is mar mar ke jeene se (Aakaash)(1953) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Manmohan Sabir, MD- Anil Biswas


saara chaman tha apna
wo bhi thha ek zamaana
sab saamne nazar ke
jalta hai ae ae
jalta hai
jalta hai

ab is mar mar ke jeene se
mita dete to achcha thha
muhabbat ki na itni tum
sazaa dete to achcha thha
ab is mar mar ke jeene se

ghadi bhar muskuraa ke
umr bhar ka ab to rona hai
nazar milte hi gar mujh ko
rula dete to achcha thha
ab is mar mar ke jeene se ae

muhabbat ke charaagon ko
bujhaana thha bujha dete
magar dil ki lagi ko tum
bujha dete ho achcha thha
ab is mar mar ke jeene se ae

@ Atul ji – all the best wishes in search of the balance one song of this film ‘Aakaash – 1953’ !!!


Atul ji
Sorry to distract you
Whether this is a co-incidence or what, Just check mukhda of this song from Bandi(1957) sung by Hemant Kumar,Geeta Dutt:”Ye mast nazar shokh ada kiske liye hai”(Prem Dhawan/Heman Kumar)


Yes, HFGK also mentions that the mukhda of this song is similar to the song of “Bandi”(1957). But these two songs must be different because the music director of these two songs are different.


Atul ji
O.K., I just posted another comment, without reading your above reply, Sorry for that.

Good Night


I must be wrong, Please excuse me………
another youtube comment under this song audio link states the same doubt, Just check this out, I just found this again

That Comment mention about the above said elusive song from Anil Bishwas`s Aakash(1953)song…..
