Blog Day : 3462 Post No. : 13894

Today is the eighty fourth birth anniversary (9 Jan 1934 – 27 Sep 2008) of singer Mahendra Kapoor. On this occasion today, I present this lovely and haunting song from the 1966 film ‘Naag Mandir’ here on our blog. This song has two versions one sung by Mahendra Kapoor and another sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

‘Naag Mandir’ was directed by Shantilal Soni for Mayurkala Pictures, Bombay. The star cast was led by Mahipal, Vijaya Choudhry and included Indira and BM Vyas.

This movie has six songs, including one multiple version song. Songs for this movie are written by three songwriters – Shiv Kumar ‘Saroj’, Bharat Vyas and Asad Bhopali. This song is written by Bharat Vyas. Music for this movie is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd Rafi have given their voices to the songs in this movie. So far three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Not much other information about this movie is either mentioned in HFGK Vol IV or available on other sources.

I became aware of this song around end-eighties, when I started collecting cassettes and also getting compilations of various singers recorded on blank (TDK/Sony) cassettes. In this endeavor I got recorded the Mahendra Kapoor songs on 14.10.1991 and since then this song is there in my collection. I like this song very much and sometimes it automatically come to my lips and I broke into humming it.

When I checked on the blog, I was surprised to note that this was still to be posted. Also, it was only few weeks back that I discovered that this song also has a female version and that too sung by Lata Mangeshkar. There is some difference in the lyrics. Both versions have one common stanza and one different stanza.

Coming back to the songs of Mahendra Kapoor I would like to mention that I like many of his songs very very much. And as and when I have got the opportunity to share his songs I have tried to get them posted on this blog. I am not going into the biographical details of Mahendra Kapoor and the list of his songs in this post today. I will just stop here and leave you with this song to enjoy today remembering him, and his contribution to Hindi Film Music.

Audio (Male Version – Mahendra Kapoor)

Audio (Female Version – Lata Mangeshkar)

Song – Mere Sanam, Sun Mera Gham (Naag Mandir) (1966) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor/ Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

mere sanam
sun mera gham
uljhanen
zindagi ban gayi ee
tu kahin, main kahin
mere sanam

zindagi ke dukh bharey
ye din kahaan bitaaun
jo na koi gham kare
wo dil kahaan se laaun
sab kuchh hai phir bhi jaise
kuchh nahin
uljhanen
zindagi ban gayi ee
tu kahin, main kahin
mere sanam

jal rahaa hai dil mera
main chup rahoon to kaise
ghut rahaa hai dam mera
main kuchh kahoon to kaise
gham se haden khushi ki jaa mili
uljhanen
zindagi ban gayi ee
tu kahin, main kahin
mere sanam

mere sanam
sun mera gham
uljhanen
zindagi ban gayi ee
tu kahin, main kahin
mere sanam

zindagi ban gayi ee
tu kahin, main kahin
mere sanam
sun mera gham

kitne din guzar gaye
kismet ko sote sote

din raat rote rote
phir bhi to badnaseebi kam nahin

tu kahin, main kahin

mere sanam
sun mera gham
uljhanen
zindagi ban gayi ee
tu kahin, main kahin
mere sanam
mere sanam

पुरुष स्वर
– – – – – – – –
मेरे सनम
सुन मेरा ग़म
उलझनें
ज़िन्दगी बन गयीं ई
तू कहीं, मैं कहीं
मेरे सनम

ज़िन्दगी के दुःख भरे
ये दिन कहाँ बिताऊं
जो न कोई ग़म करे
वो दिल कहाँ से लाऊं
सब कुछ है फिर भी जैसे
कुछ नहीं
उलझनें
ज़िन्दगी बन गयीं ई
तू कहीं, मैं कहीं
मेरे सनम

जल रहा है दिल मेरा
मैं चुप रहूँ तो कैसे
घुट रहा है दम मेरा
मैं कुछ कहूं तो कैसे
ग़म से हदें ख़ुशी कि जा मिलीं
उलझनें
ज़िन्दगी बन गयीं ई
तू कहीं, मैं कहीं
मेरे सनम

मेरे सनम
सुन मेरा ग़म
उलझनें
ज़िन्दगी बन गयीं ई
तू कहीं, मैं कहीं
मेरे सनम

महिला स्वर
– – – – – – – –
मेरे सनम
सुन मेरा ग़म
उलझनें
ज़िन्दगी बन गयीं ई
तू कहीं, मैं कहीं
मेरे सनम

जल रहा है दिल मेरा
मैं चुप रहूँ तो कैसे
घुट रहा है दम मेरा
मैं कुछ कहूं तो कैसे
ग़म से हदें ख़ुशी कि जा मिलीं
उलझनें
ज़िन्दगी बन गयीं ई
तू कहीं, मैं कहीं
मेरे सनम

कितने दिन गुज़र गए
किस्मत को सोते सोते
कितनी उम्र कट गयी
दिन रात रोते रोते
फिर भी तो बदनसीबी कम नहीं
उलझनें
ज़िन्दगी बन गयीं ई
तू कहीं, मैं कहीं

मेरे सनम
सुन मेरा ग़म
उलझनें
ज़िन्दगी बन गयीं ई
तू कहीं, मैं कहीं
मेरे सनम
मेरे सनम
मेरे सनम
