Club dance in night club-it was a genre of song that began in early 1950s and became very popular. The song would typically be sung by Geeta Dutt or Asha Bhonsle and it would be picturised on a female dancer. She would be watched by shady looking characters up to no good and scheming against others present in the gathering. 🙂

Today (25 june 2015) is the 91st birth anniversary of Madan Mohan (25 june 1924- 14 july 1975). Here is an archtypical club dance song on this occassion.

This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. The song is picturised on Helen. It took quite an effort on my part to convince myself that it was indeed Helen. 🙂

The actions of the villainous looking characters are just as priceless as the dance movements. They are all trying to harm their neighbours by various means (by stealing their stuff, by poisoning their drinks, etc. 🙂 ) They wait for the song to reach its climax before executing their plans, though. 🙂

Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan , of course. The movie is called, quite appropriately “Night Club”(1958).

Song-Kahaan phir ham kahaan phir tum kahaan ye raaten (Night Club)(1958)Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

Kahaan phir ham
kahaan phir tum
kahaan ye raaten
dhadakte dil se ho jaayen zara do baaten
pukaare dil
deewaane mil
yahaan(?) zulfon ke baadal hain
manaayen barsaaten
Kahaan phir ham
kahaan phir tum
kahaan ye raaten
dhadakte dil se ho jaayen zara do baaten

ulfat ke taraanon mein
sab khoye huye hain
kehne ko hain jaage se
par soye huye hain
ulfat ke taraanon mein
sab khoye huye hain
kehne ko hain jaage se
par soye huye hain
pukaare dil
deewaane mil
na ghabraana
na sharmaana
buri hain ye baaten
Kahaan phir ham
kahaan phir tum
kahaan ye raaten
dhadakte dil se ho jaayen zara do baaten

afsaane nigaahon ke
sunta jaa deewaane
phir aaye ki na aayen
milne ke zamaane
afsaane nigaahon ke
sunta jaa deewaane
phir aaye ki na aayen
milne ke zamaane
pukaare dil
deewaane mil
badi mushqil se aayi hai milan ki ye raaten
Kahaan phir ham
kahaan phir tum
kahaan ye raaten
dhadakte dil se ho jaayen zara do baaten
pukaare dil
deewaane mil
yahaan(?) zulfon ke baadal hain
manaayen barsaaten
Kahaan phir ham
kahaan phir tum
kahaan ye raaten
dhadakte dil se ho jaayen zara do baaten

This movie (Nightclub) had many songs of the same mould, all of them melodious, as far as I remember.
This was an altogether different facet of Madanmohan, which he carried in his compositions till the very end.
In Mausam too, there is a ‘Ruke ruke se qadam’ and a counter, ‘Mere ishq me laakhon jhatke’, both very melodious.

Which was the first night-club song of Hindi movies?.
Was it “dil jale tho jale” by Lata in Taxi Driver 1954 ?

All the songs were sung by Asha except this one. Some record.

In the begining we see Mubarak and Ram Mohan. The third character is unrecognizable in the dark. Who is the other guy with specs. Is he S Nazeer or Jamal. Please confirm. PC where are you.

Fabulous song. I came across this when I was looking at Madan Mohan’s site. There was another club song in this film, as far as I can remember which was lovely as well.
