Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 20
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is like cherry picking a hit parade – the repeat songs are almost always the popular hit songs that have made a serious mark on the collective memory of the audiences and lovers of Hindi films and film songs. And this song is no exception. Rather this song has been so popular – with its catchy lyrics and a very hummable melody – that one hears this song being used in many different avatars outside of the film frame – remixes, revival melodies, even background music for recorded dance performances. One can find such samples online on YT.

This iconic song, originally from the 1968 film – ‘Kismat’, has been reused in the 2011 film ‘Tanu Weds Manu’. Whereas the original song was a disguise cum diversion song, in a situation where the lead pair is trying to get away from a group of bad-men, in the newer film, this song is being used as a wooing-cum-proposal-making song. The occasion is a wedding of a friend of the leading lady. Tanuja (Kangana Ranaut) aka Tanu is trying to muster up courage to proposition Manu, who appears to be too shy and unprepared to take a step towards a relationship. Using the wedding scenario as an excuse, Tanu gets drunk (or appears to get drunk). The situation develops and reaches this song in a couple of minutes, and in the guise of this song, Tanu finally gets to speak her heart out to Manu,

kismat bana de meri
duniya basa de meri
kar le sagaai meri jaan

Please note that in this re-use, the original song has been presented as it is, the only one change is that two stanzas have been used instead of 3. So what we hear in this song are the original voices of Asha Bhosle and Shamshad Begum, the mukhda and antara lines suitably edited to present a shorter version.

The info about this reuse has been shared with me by Anekant ji. He has been a regular contributor and there is still a few more songs in my pending list for this series, that have been suggested by him.

The original song from the film ‘Kismat’ came on to this blog on 9th February, 2009. It can be accessed here – “Kajra Mohabbat Wala, Akhiyon Mein Aisa Daala“.

Check out this resue, and witness an energetic on screen performance by Kangana, who, under the supposed influence of alcohol, is desirous of presenting a Kanpuria dance for the occasion. And enjoy.

Song – Kajra Mohabbat Wala Akhiyon Mein Aisa Daala  (Tanu Weds Manu) (2011) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – SH Bihari, MD – OP Nayyar

Lyrics

kajra mohabbat waala
akhiyon me aisa daala
kajre ne le li meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan
duniya hai mere peeche
lekin main tere peeche
apna bana le meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan
kajra mohabbat waala
akhiyon me aisa daala
kajre ne le li meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

aayi ho kahaan se gori
aankhon me pyaar le ke
aayi ho kahaan se gori

aankhon me pyaar le ke
chadhti jawaani ki ye pehli bahaar leke
dilli shahar ka saara
meena bazaar leke

dilli shahar ka saara
meena bazaar leke

jhumka bareli wala
kaano me aisa daala
jhumke ne le li meri jaan
hay re main tere qurbaan
duniya hai mere peeche
lekin main tere peeche
apna bana le meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

motor na bangla maangoon
jhumka na haar maangoon
motor na bangla maangoon
jhumka na haar maangoon
dil ko jalaane waale dil ka qaraar maangoon
sainya bedardi mere
thoda sa pyaar maangoon

sainya bedardi mere
thoda sa pyaar maangoon

kismat bana de meri
duniya basa de meri
kar le sagaai meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

कजरा मोहब्बत वाला
अखियों में ऐसा डाला
कजरे ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
दुनिया है मेरे पीछे
लेकिन मैं तेरे पीछे
अपना बना ले मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
कजरा मोहब्बत वाला
अखियों में ऐसा डाला
कजरे ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

आई हो कहाँ से गोरी
आँखों में प्यार ले के
आई हो कहाँ से गोरी
आँखों में प्यार ले के
चढ़ती जवानी की ये
पहली बहार ले के
दिल्ली शहर का सारा
मीना बाज़ार ले के
दिल्ली शहर का सारा
मीना बाज़ार ले के
झुमका बरेली वाला
कानों में ऐसा डाला
झुमके ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
दुनिया है मेरे पीछे
लेकिन मैं तेरे पीछे
अपना बना ले मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

मोटर ना बंगला माँगूँ
झुमका ना हार माँगूँ
मोटर ना बंगला माँगूँ
झुमका ना हार माँगूँ
दिल को जलाने वाले दिल का क़रार माँगूँ
सैंया बेदर्दी मेरे
थोड़ा सा प्यार माँगूँ
सैंया बेदर्दी मेरे
थोड़ा सा प्यार माँगूँ
किस्मत बना दे मेरी
दुनिया बसा दे मेरी
कर लै सगाई मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

Sudhir-ji, thanks for this post. Have heard the original song (possibly hundreds of times, during college days and it is still ‘humming’ in my brain!). Didn’t know there was a modern version too. Will listen/watch it later today. -KS
