“Roop Rekha” (1948) was produced by Padam Maheshwari and directed by Samar Guha for Chitrakala Mandir, Bombay. The movie had Veena Kohli and Rehan, in lead roles. The movie also had Asha Posley, Smriti Biswas, Durga Mota, Ajmal, G N Butt etc in it.

The movie had ten songs that were penned by three lyricists and composed by four music directors.

One song from the movie has been covered in the blog. Here is the second song from “Roop Rekha” (1948) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Zeenat Begam. Preetam Jiyaayi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi Roy Chowdhury.

Only the audio of the melancholic song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Hasrat nahin jeene ki (Roop Rekha)(1948) Singer-Zeenat Begam, Lyrics-Preetam Jiyaayi, MD-Ravi Roy Chaudhury


hasrat nahin jeene ki
mushqil nahin mar jaana
mushqil nahin mar jaana
jab dekh chuki aankhen
lut’ta hua kashaanah
lut’ta hua kashaanah
is toote huye dil ki
is toote huye dil ki
dhadkan na koi sun le

kuchh dil pe nazar rakhna
haan aan
kuch waqt ko samjhaana
kuch waqt ko samjhaana
jab dekh chuki aankhen
lut’ta hua kashaanah

jalta hai to jalne de
jalta hai to jalne de
dil se na dhuaan uthe
ye daagh chhupa rakhna
is aag ko pi jaana
is aag ko pi jaana
jab dekh chuki aankhe
lut’ta hua kashaanah

tadbeer banaaye kya
tatbeer banaaye kya
bigdi hui kismat ko
judta nahin hai jode
haan aan
toota hua paimaana
toota hua paimaana
jab dekh chuki aankhen
lut’ta hua kashaanah
lut’ta hua kashaanah
