Few months back (on 13th May 2016) there was a comment by Anekant ji on this song ‘laayi kahaan hai zindagi’ (Taxie-Taxie 1977). Reading the title ‘laayi kahaan hai zindagi’ of his song post reminded me of a Kishore Kumar song – ‘toone hame kya diya ree zindagi’.

When I checked on the blog I found that this song is yet to be posted and since then I was longing to share this song.

This song is from the film ‘Zindagi Zindagi – 1972’ which was directed by Tapan Sinha. It was produced by Nariman A.Irani and A.P.Sharma.

Tapan Sinha also wrote the story and screenplay of this film.

Its dialogues were were written by Khwaja Ahmed Abbas.

The cast of this film include Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Waheeda Rehman, Deb Mukherjee, Farida Jalal, Shyama, Ramesh Deo, Anwar Hussain, Chhaya Devi, Nasir Khan, Jalal Agha, Iftikhar, Jagirdar, Master Tito, Mrinal Mukherjee, Keshav Rana, Samar Rai, Jankidas, S.P.Mahendra, Nani Ganguly, Sulochana (Rubi Mayers), Mulchand, Mukri, Reshma, Narmada Shankar, Chand Usmani (in Guest Appearance) and others.

The film was passed by Censor on 19.08.1972.

This film had total of seven songs in it. All the songs were penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by S.D.Burman. Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey and S.D.Burman gave voices to the songs in this film.

Three songs of this film have been posted earlier on the blog.

Years back there was a compilation (on cassette) brought up by HMV titled ‘Sun Mere Bandhu re’ – ‘S.D.Burman sung his ‘own compositions’, which is there in my collection. This compilation had these songs ‘piya tune kya kiya re’ and ‘zindagi aye zindagi tere hai do roop’. Both beautiful songs. This compilation is having all the great songs sung by S.D.Burman. So personally I was aware of these two songs of this film.

Since I have not watched this film till, I cannot say much about this film.

Reading about this film on wiki I came to know that S.D.Burman got the ‘National Award’ for music for this film. However it was surprising to note that none of the songs from this movie made it to the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list of that year.

In those years Kishore Kumar was ruling over the charts and in this particular year there were twenty one songs (ten solos, and eleven duets) of Kishore Kumar in the annual Binaca Geetmala list where ‘dam maaro dam’ was on top of the list. I wonder how the today’s song missed this list.

And going by the total number of Kishore Kumar songs posted on our blog, we surely have many more such gems of his, this ‘golden decade’ 1971-80, to be covered on the blog.

Remembering Kishore Kumar – ‘The Versatile Genius’ on his birth anniversary (4 August 1929 – 13 October 1987) today, let us now listen to this song …

Lyrics

Hey ae ae ae ae
Hey ae ae
Toone hamen kya diya ree zindagi
Toone hamen kya diya ree zindagi
Hamne maangi to mili na maut bhi ee
Toone hame kya diya ree zindagi

Khaali haath aaye thhe
Khaali haath ham chale
Diljale
Khaali haath
Khaali haath aaye thhe
Khaali haath ham chale
Ham chale diljale
Khaali haath
Hamne chaahe thhe phool bhi
Hamne paayi na dhool bhi ee
Toone hame kya diya ree zindagi ee
Toone hame kya diya ree zindagi

Naa diyaa

Man ka ye soonaapan Phoonke tan
Naa diyaa
Naa diyaa
naa kiran
Man ka ye soonaapan Phoonke tan
Naa diyaa
Door galiyon mein
Raat bhar
Jhilmilaati hai chaandni
Toone hamen kya diya ree zindagi

Haan bewafaa
bekhabar
Beimaan
beqadar
Tu magar
Bewafaa
Bewafaa
bekhabar
Beimaan
beqadar
Tu magar
Bewafaa
Geet gaataa hai
Tere hi
Duniya mein har aadmi
Toone hamen kya diya ree zindagi ee
Toone hamen kya diya ree zindagi
Hamne maangi to mili na maut bhi ee
Tune hame kya diya ree zindagi

Devnagri Script Lyrics:
—————————————–
हे ए ए ए ए
हे ए ए
तूने हमें क्या दिया री ज़िन्दगी
तूने हमें क्या दिया री ज़िन्दगी
हमने मांगी तो मिली न मौत भी ई
तूने हमें क्या दिया री ज़िन्दगी

खाली हाथ आये थे
खाली हाथ हम चले
दिलजले
खाली हाथ
खाली हाथ आये थे
खाली हाथ हम चले
दिलजले
खाली हाथ
हमने चाहे थे फूल भी
हमने पायी न धुल भी ई
तूने हमें क्या दिया री ज़िन्दगी ई
तूने हमें क्या दिया री ज़िन्दगी

ना दीया ना किरन
मन का ये सूनापन
फूंके तन
ना दीया
ना दीया ना किरन
मन का ये सूनापन
फूंके तन
ना दीया
दूर गलियों में
रात भर
झिलमिलाती है चांदनी
तूने हमें क्या दिया री ज़िन्दगी

हाँ बेवफा
बेखबर
बेईमान
बेक़दर तू मगर
बेवफा
बेवफा
बेखबर
बेईमान
बेक़दर तू मगर
बेवफा
गीत गाता है
तेरे ही
दुनिया में हर आदमी
तूने हमें क्या दिया री ज़िन्दगी ई
तूने हमें क्या दिया री ज़िन्दगी
हमने मांगी तो मिली न मौत भी ई
तूने हमें क्या दिया री ज़िन्दगी

Ah, what a song! Am listening to it after ages! Saw the movie way back in the 70s. This is that hospital movie, right? Touching movie, it was.

Thanks, Avinashji, for this fantastic song. Should come in the category of “how come this wasn’t posted yet”. 🙂

I love this song. I heard it often on the radio. As soon as I read the title words – the song started ringing in my mind.

Aha! As far as I remember, Deb Mukherjee is a patient in the movie. Dimag chalne laga! He falls for Farida Jalal I think. They sing ‘Khush raho saathiyon tumhe chhod kar ham chale’ when leaving The lead pair, Sunil Dutt and Waheeda cannot acknowledge their love for each other for some reason. Aisi kuch tragedy thi.
