Blog Day : 3822 Post No. : 14822

Hullo to all of Atuldom 🙂

At the outset I must wish all the followers of Atulsongaday a happy and music-filled 2019.

January 4th is one of the dates for which I just have to write a song, with or without a post. How can I miss remembering our very own R D Burman- not that we can escape his music on other days, right? Every second song that plays in our mind would invariably be a Pancham composition specially if we have grown up in the 70s or 80s. Even those who subscribe to the view that the music of the 70s or the later years was not a patch on the music of the golden era would grudgingly say they love “chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko”; “mere naina saawan bhadon”; “kya hua tera waada”; “jis gali mein tera ghar na ho balama”; “abhi toh haath mein jaam hai” or “zindagi hai khel koi pass koi fail”. So, there is no escape from Panchamda or R D Burman and you have a song by him for any genre, mood occasion etc.

Panchamda’s music has helped the careers of so many actors and actresses; launched a few star kids and most often it used to be songs written by Majrooh or Anand Bakshi. But today I found an RD song written by Nida Fazli. I have been hearing and humming it since I had heard it for the first time in the 80s and for some reason presumed that it was written by Anand Bakshi (so much for my so-called knowledge about movies and HFM).

One of the reasons for my presumption could be that the hero of the movie was Randhir Kapoor. But that is also a misplaced assumption, as the scene stealer in the movie is or was Sanjeev Kumar and in a double-role too.

So here is the song from the 1981 RK Film’s (another assumption bursts here, all these years I thought Randhir Kapoor was the producer, turns out to be Raj Kapoor) “Biwi ‘o’ Biwi” directed by Rahul Rawail. This movie had all songs except one by Nida Fazli i.e. 5 out of 6 was by Nida and the last one by Vitthalbhai Patel. RD used Kishore Kumar, Mohd. Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle for playback. Today’s song is by Kishore Kumar on Randhir Kapoor who is seen romancing Poonam Dhillon in front of all her friends which is headed by Prema Narayan.

I was trying to visualise how he would have looked today- at 80- if he had not left us all those years ago. He didn’t even wait to enjoy the success of “1942 a love story”. But I don’t want to push the readers’ mind into sadness as a song composed by RD or Panchamda- as people loved to call him – has always had the ability to bring the listener on to the dance floor.


Song-Sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai (Biwi O Biwi)(1981) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Nida Fazli,MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
ek hi toh ladki hai
ek hi toh ladka hai
jab bhi yeh mil gaye
pyaar ho gaya
sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
ek hi toh ladki hai
ek hi toh ladka hai
jab bhi yeh mil gaye
pyaar ho gaya

mohan ki raadha hai,
majnu ki hai laila
har yug mein lagta hai
dilwaalon ka mela
mohan ki raadha hai,
majnu ki hai laila
har yug mein lagta hai
dilwaalon ka mela
ek se do huye
pyaar ho gaya
arre sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
ek hi toh ladki hai
ek hi toh ladka hai
jab bhi yeh mil gaye
pyaar ho gaya

patthar ki masjid ho
ya chaandi ki moorat
duniya mein pyaar bina koi nahin teerath
patthar ki masjid ho
ya chaandi ki moorat
duniya mein pyaar bina koi nahin teerath
dil se dil jab mile pyaar ho gaya
sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
ek hi toh ladki hai
ek hi toh ladka hai
jab bhi ye mil gaye
pyaar ho gaya

saagar ki oar chale
nadiya ghoonghat khole
bhanwara bhi kaliyon ke aage-peechhe dole
saagar ki oar chale
nadiya ghoonghat khole
bhanwra bhi kaliyon ke aage-peechhe dole
faasle kam huye
pyaar ho gaya
sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
ek hi toh ladki hai
ek hi toh ladka hai
jab bhi yeh mil gaye
pyaar ho gaya

सदियों से दुनिया में
ये ही तो किस्सा है

सदियों से दुनिया में
ये ही तो किस्सा है
एक ही तो लड़की है
एक ही तो लड़का है
जब भी ये
मिल गए
प्यार हो गया
सदियों से दुनिया में
ये ही तो किस्सा है
एक ही तो लड़की है
एक ही तो लड़का है
जब भी ये
मिल गए
प्यार हो गया

मोहन की राधा है
मजनू की है लैला
हर युग में लगता है
दिलवालों का मेला
मोहन की राधा है
मजनू की है लैला
हर युग में लगता है
दिलवालों का मेला
एक से
दो हुये
प्यार हो गया
अरे सदियों से दुनिया में
ये ही तो किस्सा है
एक ही तो लड़की है
एक ही तो लड़का है
जब भी ये
मिल गए
प्यार हो गया

पत्थर की मस्जिद हो
या चाँदी की मूरत
दुनिया में प्यार बिना
कोई नहीं तीर्थ
पत्थर की मस्जिद हो
या चाँदी की मूरत
दुनिया में प्यार बिना
कोई नहीं तीर्थ
दिल से दिल
जब मिले
प्यार हो गया
सदियों से दुनिया में
ये ही तो किस्सा है
एक ही तो लड़की है
एक ही तो लड़का है
जब भी ये
मिल गए
प्यार हो गया

सागर की ओर चले
नदिया घूँघट खोले
भँवरा भी कलियों के
आगे पीछे डोले
सागर की ओर चले
नदिया घूँघट खोले
भँवरा भी कलियों के
आगे पीछे डोले
फासले कम हुये
प्यार हो गया
सदियों से दुनिया में
ये ही तो किस्सा है
एक ही तो लड़की है
एक ही तो लड़का है
जब भी ये
मिल गए
प्यार हो गया

There is an interesting trivia about recording of this song. The film was produced by Raj Kapoor under R K Banner but it was Randhir Kapoor, the lead actor of the film who was deciding the music part of the film. R D Burman was one of his close buddies.

In the midst of the final rehearsal of the song under discussion which was the first song to be recorded the next day, Raj Kapoor walked in eating bhelpuri. He heard the song and liked it. After the end of rehearsal, Raj Kapoor callled Nida Fazli aside and asked who told him what to write in the song. Nida Fazli pointed at Randhir Kapoor. Raj Kapoor said that it is ok but I would also like to share my view on this song. So he requested Nida Fazli to come to his Chembur residence the next day early in the morning.

RD called Nida Fazli separately and remarked that this song is as good as gone. He reminded Nida Fazli that the song had to be recorded the next day. So whatever Raj Kapoor says,he should incorporate and complete the lyrics.

Next morning Nida Fazli reached RK cottage early morning. As soon as Raj Kapoor saw him, he uttered in English ‘ there is a boy there is a girl, both fall in love’. Nida Fazli sat with Raj Kapoor and set in metre his English words as’ ‘ sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai, ek hi toh ladki hai, ek hi toh ladka hai, jab bhi yeh mil gaye, pyaar ho gaya’. Raj Kapoor liked the lyrics. The song was recorded as planned.

I do not remember the source of this trivia but I think I had read this trivia long back in an interview of Nida Fazli about his experience in working with Raj Kapoor..

this is interesting trivia.
Thank you Sadanandji

Very interesting trivia. :))

Dear Peevesie’s Mom ji

Thanks for bringing up this melodious memory today. A lovely song – words, music and rendition – all come together so well. And it is performed so well on screen.

A favorite from the radio listening days. 🙂

i have always wondered what went wrong in Randhir Kapoor’s career. he had the looks, a good start with successful films and great songs against his name. but the career didn’t continue like his brother’s and it was painful to see him in later movies after 2000; movies like ‘Mother’; ‘Super Naani’; ‘Houseful’ etc.

Possibly his laid back life style ( ?)
