Sharaab nahin hoon magar ek nasha hoon

“Adhikaar”(1971) was produced by Noor and directed by S M Sagar. The movie had Deb Mukherjee, Ashok Kumar, Kishan Mehta, Sumati Gupte, Helen, Kundan, Pran, Ratnamala, Nanda, Raj Mehra, Shammi, Rajnish, Tabassum, Brahmachari, Indira Bansal etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it.

Four songs from this movie were in the blog during 2008 and 2009. Then after a long lull, the fifth song was discussed in 2016.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Adhikaar”(1971) to appear in the blog.

This song, like the prevvious song from the movie, is sung by Asha. But what a change of genre. The previous song was a remonstrating with the Almighty genre of Krishn Bhajan that was sung by Nanda epitomising a Bhariya Naari. The contrast cannot be more dramatic that this song. This song is a cabaret song picturised on Helen in a club scenario where she is seen eulogising the virtues of “sharaab”. 🙂

The picturisation also shows Deb Mukherji, among others. There is also one “suited booted” man- as one of our present day Neta would put it, who appears to be up to no good. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify him.

Ramesh Pant is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

With this song, “Adhikaar”(1971) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.
This song also happens to be the 300th song from movies of 1971 to be discussed in the blog. To put things in perspective, total number of songs for movies released in 1971 add up to 652.


Song-Sharaab nahin hoon magar ek nasha hoon (Adhikaar)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Ramesh Pant, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

ru ru ru
aaa

good evening everybody
mujhe kuchh kehna hai
main nahin dekh sakti kisi ko udaas
bujhaati hoon
aankhon se aankhon ki pyaas

sharaab nahin hoon
magar ek nasha hoon
main saare zamaane ke
gham ki dava hoon
sharaab nahin hoon
magar ek nasha hoon
he he he
main saare zamaane ke
gham ki dava hoon
haaye re haaye re
sharaab nahin hoon
magar ek nasha hoon
hey
main saare zamaane ke
gham ki dava hoon

doo doobiyaa
aha ha ha ha ha
lalalalalalalaa
lalalalala
doo doobiyaa

dilbar zara nazar to mila
mehfil mein aa ke mat sharma
main jaanoon tere dil mein hai kya
jee bhar ke le le maza
peene ka
jeene ka
dilbar zara nazar to mila
mehfil mein aa ke mat sharma
main jaanoon tere dil mein hai kya
ji bhar ke le le maza
peene ka
jeene ka
ho
jo gham ke mare hote hain
unka koi nahin hota
ho
jo gham ke mare hote hai n
unka koi nahin hota
unhen apna aa aa aa aa
banaati hoon
haaye re haaye re haaye re
sharaab nahin hoon
magar ek nasha hoon
he he he
main saare zamaane ke
gham ki dava hoon
sharaab nahin hoon
magar ek nasha hoon
hey
main saare zamaane ke
gham ki dava hoon

chehra bujha bujha sa hai
aankhon mein dard chhalka hai
aakhir tujhe hua kya hai
ab to zara muskura
jo hua
bhool ja
chehra bujha bujha sa hai
aankhon mein dard chhalka hai
aakhir tujhe hua kya hai
ab to zara muskura
jo hua
bhool ja
udaas nazron ki pyaas ho
ya ho aag seene ki
udaas nazron ki pyaas ho
ya ho aag seene ki
main donon ko o o o o
bujhaaati hoon
haaye re haaye re haaye re
sharaab nahin hoon
magar ek nasha hoon
hey hey hey
main saare zamaane ke
gham ki dava hoon
sharaab nahin hoon
magar ek nasha hoon
hey
main saare zamaane ke
gham ki dava hoon
ru oo oo oo
ru oo oo oo
waa aa

lalalalalalala
aa aa aa
