Here is the fifth and final song from “Intezaar” (1973) to appear in the blog. This song is arguably the most well known song from the movie. I was aware of this song during its day even though I was not aware about the details of the song vis a vis the movie the song was from.

I was only aware of a few lines from the song. Today, more than 45 years after I firdt heard this song, I actually became aware of the full lyrics of the song while noting them down. The song is supposed to be a light hearted song and a satire of babas. But the lyrics of the song are not as trivial as they are supposed to be. The lyrics, to my mind are quite philosophical. In addition, the light hearted lyrics of the song actually convey messages that I feel are true. The conventional logic is that one should live a life of self denial to secure “moksh”. The message of the lyrics is just the reverse. The song and the picturisation is supposed to be light hearted and not to be taken seriously, but I find myself fully agreeing to the contents of the song. It is perhaps something that the lyricist never intended to, when he penned this song all those years ago. 🙂

The song is sung by Manna Dey and it is lip synced by I S Johar who plays a baba. He preaches indulgence, instead of self denial, and naturally he has a big following compared to those babas who preach boring stuff like leading disciplined spartan lifestyle far from distractions of modern life.

Verma Malik is the lyricist and he inadvertently has penned a great philosophical song with quite a bit of truth in it.

Chitragupta is the music director.

With this song, “Intezaar” (1973) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.



Song-Man ko pinjre mein na daalo (Intezaar)(1973) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Chitragupta


hmm hmm hmm
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo
arre man to hai ek udta panchchi
jitna ude udaa lo
man ko
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo

kehte hain ki pyaar na kar
arre pyaar aur na karo

man jo kahe ke pyaar karo
ek baar nahin sau baar karo
ye pyaar diya usne nibhaane ke liye
aji pyaar diya usne nibhaane ke liye
roop diya sirf dikhaane ke liye
aankhen banaayi hain ladaane ke liye to
dil diya usne milaane ke liye
are pyaar ek punya hai pyaar hai jaap
nahin hota to bhi karo apne aap
pyaar koi paap nahin pyaar hai milaap
pyaar bina jeewan hai total flop
punya paap ke chakkar mein koi
pad ke sake na bach
kyun re chele jhooth kaha
nahin guru ji
thank you very much
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo
man ko pinjre mein na daalo

to kehte hain ki madira na piyo
arre bhai kyun
kyun na piyo
man kahe gar wishky piyo
phir jiski mile tum uski piyo
arre peene ki cheez hai ye karo mat gham
bhai peene ki cheez hai ye karo mat gham
kabhi nahin sochna ke tharra ya rum
itni piyo ke ukhad jaaye dum
baatli mile to poori baatli khatam
arre jab whisky se man bhar jaayega
bhar jaayega to tauba kar jaayega
man pe jo koi kaabu kar jaayega
bhavsaagar se wo tar jaayega
moti akal waale na samjhen
meri baat baareek hai
kyun chele jee
ghalat kahaan
nahin guru jee
thheek hai
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo
man ko pinjre mein na daalo

aur kehte hain
man ko baandh ke rakho
arre bhaai kyun bhaai
kyun baandh ke rakkho

dheeli chhod do man ki lagaam
amar ho jaaye jag mein naam
jiske man ne kiya fly hai
jiske man ne kiya fly hai
usne dekho mukti paayi hai
jaise raadha meera bai hai
donon ko hi mila krishn kanhaai hai
par jis jis ka man atak gaya
wo raahon mein bhatak gaya
agar zara ye khatak gaya
to samjho praani latak gaya
ye to hai ek udan kabootar
iska udna fact hai
kyun jee foreigner
wrong hai
no sir correct hai
very good
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo
arre man to hai ek udta panchchi
jitna ude udaa lo
man ko
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo
