Joshila is a 1973 Bollywood thriller film directed by Yash Chopra. The film stars Dev Anand, Raakhee, Hema Malini, Pran, Bindu, Madan Puri, Manmohan Krishna, Padma Khanna, A. K. Hangal, Sulochana Latkar, Sudhir, Hercules, Master Satyajeet, I. S. Johar, Vikas Anand, Roopesh Kumar, Iftekhar, Jagdish Raj and Mahendra Sandhu.

Joshila was directed by Yash Chopra, produced by Gulshan Rai for Trimurti Films, written by Akhtar ul-Iman, Akhtar Mirza, Gulshan Nanda and C. J. Pavri, cinematography by Fali Mistry, edited by Pran Mehra and was released on the 19th of October 1973. The playback was by Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Dev Anand, lyrics were by Sahir Ludhianvi and the composer was R D Burman.

The storyline (according to IMDB) is:

Jailor Manmohan Krishan is responsible for looking after convicts undergoing sentences of rigorous imprisonment. He has a young, beautiful and captive daughter named Shalini. Shalini is a poet, one day while reciting her poetry, she meets with a young man, who introduces himself as Amar, who also happens to be a poet himself. The two of them spend beautiful moments together and finds themselves attracted to each other. Shalini wants to find out why Amar is in jail. She is told in no uncertain terms that Amar is in jail for murder – for killing the brother of his former lover, Sapna. She also found out that this is not true and would strive to the best of her merit to get Amar release from jail because she is in love with him and would like to marry him.

In this song, Padma Khanna lip syncs and dances with a male counterpart (unidentified) to “Kaanp Rahi Main” in Joshila 1973 sung by Asha Bhonsle, penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Rahul Dev Burman,

There were eight songs in the movie, of which four have been covered earlier in this blog. This is the fifth song to be posted.



Song-Kaanp rahi main (Josheela)(1973) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-R D Burman



Kaanp rahi main
Abhi zara thham jaanam
Baaki hai ae ae
raat abhi
Haanf rahi main
Le loon zara dum jaanam
Na kar ye ae
baat abhi

Toone ae
O re mere jaani
Jo hai jee mein thhaani
Us’se daroon main
daroon main
daroon main
Tu jo
Paass mere aaye
Jaan meri jaaye
Aahen bharoon main
Th Th Tha Tara tara th ra
Th Th Tha Tara tara th ra
Jaane de re
Rok zara
haath abhi
Kaanp rahi main
Abhi zara thham jaanam
Baaqi hai ae
raat abhi
Haanf rahi main
Le loon zara dum jaanam
Na kar ye ae
baat abhi

Abhi ee ee
Gul hai diye saare
Paass aaja pyaare ae
Ban ja deewaana
Zarra mast main bhi ho loon
Toh ye tujhe boloon
Tu hai nishaana
Th Th Tha Tara tara th ra
Main bhi hoon
Tu bhi hai
saath abhi
Kaanp rahi main
Abhi zara thham jaanam
Baaki hai ae
raat abhi
Haanf rahi main
Le loon zara dum jaanam
Na kar ye ae
baat abhi
Kaanp rahi main
Kaanp rahi main
