Here is the third and final song from “Basti aur Baazaar” (1973) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Manna Dey and Bela Sawer. Siraz Aghazi is the lyricist. Music is composed by J P Kaushik.

I have seen the video of the movie, mainly to get to the songs of the movie. The movie appears to be an out and out boring movie and one cannot expect an average movie goer and even a discerning movie goer to spend one’s hard earned money and time on a movie like this.

The song is picturised as a background song and small portions of the song are shown in the movie at different occasions. The song sounds nice on the ears and that is all one can say about the song.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors visible in the picturisation of this song that playes in the background while the protagonist is seen moving around well known locations of Bombay (now Mumbai).

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

Song-Agar aah karte badnaam hote (Basti aur Baazaar)(1973) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Siraz Aghaaz, MD-J P Kaushik
Manna Dey + Bela Sawer


na shiqwa hai khudaai ka
na qismat se shiqaayat hai
hazaaron saal se
is aasmaan ke
zulm sahte hain

agar aah karte
badnaam hote
hum pathhar hain
hum nahin rote ae
hum nahin rote
agar aah karte
badnaam hote
hum patthar hain
hum nahin rote ae
hum nahin rote

mili hai jo maayoos majboor nazren
ye manjar qayaamat se kam to nahin hai
nahin chaaraagar hai na humdam hai koi ee ee
nahin chaaraagar hai na humdam hai koi
hai gham apne saathi
ye kam to nahin hai
kahaan jaate ye gham
agar hum na hote
hum patthar hain
hum nahin rote
hum nahin rote

ye saugat di hai muqaddar ne humko
ghamon ke khazaane hain khushiyaan nahin hain
thaharte nahin waqt ke tez dhaare
thaharte nahi waqt ke tez dhaare
magar marhale zindagi ke wahi hain
nahin hausle phir bhi kamzor hote
hum patthar hain
hum nahin rote
hum nahin rote
