Zindagi sau baras ki sahi

Anand Bakshi- R. D. Burman- Kishore Kumar- Rajesh Khanna. This is one combination that spelt wonders for all Hindi film music lovers across the globe. This is a combo which gave us melodies, in the 70s, in films like Kati Patang, The Train, Apna Desh, Amar Prem, Raja Rani, Namak Haraam, Aap Ki Kasam, Ajnabee etc. The trend followed in the 80s too with movies like Ashanti, Hum Dono (yes there are three films by this name in Bollywood), Awaaz, Alag Alag, etc.

Ok why am I listing all this? Because I have been listening to a lot of RD Burman songs since morning and thinking how his music sounds good even after a lapse of about 35 years. Of course, he did compose music in films in the 90s but most of the movies (with RDB music) post 1988 kept failing at the box office. So much so, that his musical contribution went mostly unnoticed—”Gardish” in 1993 with a song like “Hum na samjhe thhe baat bas itni si khwab seeshe ki duniya pathar ki” etc. The magic seemed to have vanished. An anecdote by Vidoo Vinod Chopra goes like this: he had gone to sign RD for his “1942-A Love Story”. And wen he heard what RD had composed he was not happy with the way it sounded. Vinod Chopra has said in many interviews that RD didn’t know why his music was not working amongst his fans and he was finding it difficult to find his moorings. And the final score that we hear in that movie came out after ‘N’ number of sittings. But unfortunately, RD never lived to enjoy his success post “1942- a Love Story”.

But we, the fans of RD Burman, clutch at any song of his that triggers memories of his great days. And today I have one such song from the 1984 release “Awaaz”. This movie starred Rajesh Khanna, Rakesh Roshan, Suresh Oberoi, Jaya Prada, Supriya Pathak, Amrish Puri, Madan Puri etc. the movie had one other distinction – it was a coming together of the Rajesh- Shakti Samanta team post “Anurodh” in 1977. Today’s song is a party song. Probably a marriage anniversary of Rajesh Khanna and Jaya Prada where we find his sister Supriya Pathak, friend Suresh Oberoi with his wife (in the movie 🙂 ) Beena, and Rakesh Roshan as his to-be brother-in-law enjoying the song. Only one Song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Missing you R D Burman.

Lyrics

Hey hey ho ho ho ho
zindagi sau baras ki sahi
o zindagi sau baras ki sahi
zindagi ka bharosa nahin een
zindagi sau baras ki sahi
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
chaand chhup jaaye kab kya pata
chaandni ka bharosa nahin een
chaand chhup jaaye kab kya pata

aag thhodi si dil mein laga ke rakho
apne dil ki shama bhi jala ke rakho
aag thhodi si dil mein laga ke rakho
apne dil ki shama bhi jala ke rakho
ghar charaagon se
ghar chairaagon se raushan sahi
raushni ka bharosa nahin een
chaand chhup jaaye kab kya pata

yoonhi chalte huye
paas ham aa gaye
aaj ye soch ke
hum toh ghabra gaye
yoonhi chalte huye
paas ham aa gaye
aaj ye soch ke
hum toh ghabra gaye
ban na jaaye
ban na jaaye ye dil ki lagi
dillagi ka bharosa nahin een

o zindagi sau baras ki sahi

zulf hai ya ghata
honth hai ya kanwal
khoobsoorat ho tum
jaise koi ghazal
zulf hai ya ghata
honth hai ya kanwal
khoobsoorat ho tum
jaise koi ghazal
tum to karne
tum to karne lage shaayri
shaayri ka bharosa nahin een

o zindagi sau baras ki sahi
zindagi ka bharosa nahin een
chaand chhup jaaye kab kya pata
chaandni ka bharosa nahin een

la la la la la
laa la la la laa

SAD VERSION:

thank you PCji for this extra bonus. i didn’t know there was a sad version
waqt ka kya pataa
ek pal mein ho kya
aaj kisko khabar
aaj kal mein ho kya
waqt ka kya pataa
ek pal mein ho kya
aaj kisko khabar
aaj kal mein ho kya
ek zhoka
ek zhoka hawa ka hai yeh
aadmi ka bharosa nahi
zindagi sau baras ki sahi
zindagi ka bharosa nahi

atulji, i think we can add these also to the main body of the post

# Wo taarikh yaad aati hai, un iltijaaon ki yaad aati hai
kuchh geet yaad aate hain, geeton se dil ko behla lete hain#
Na kami thi doston ki …
