Rahul Dev Burman – Forgotten Songs – 5

The fifth song of this series is a beauty from “Ehsaan”, a 1970 movie directed by Shiv Kumar for producer S J Rajdeo. The movie was written by R K Bannerjee, the songs were penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by R D Burman.

The movie starred Joy Mukharjee, Anjana, Bobby, Rajender Nath, Aruna Irani, Azad, Helen, Johnny Whisky, K. N. Singh, Madan Puri, Rajan Kapoor, Renu, Shabana, Sheri, Sulochana Chattarjee, Sunder, Tun Tun, etc.

The story of this movie, as per the song uploader is that Shalini lives a wealthy lifestyle with her widowed dad, Mohan, and a younger brother, Bobby. Her dad has been entrusted by the Government of India to safeguard a list of the location of India’s secret agents worldwide.

Many gangsters are recruited to try and secure this list for large sums of money, but none succeed. Then one day while Shalini is returning home, she is accosted by hoodlums and abducted.

A young man, Raja, comes to her rescue, and escorts her home. She introduces him to her father, and soon both fall in love with each other. Raja becomes a frequent visitor to the Lal residence and is welcomed by everyone including young Bobby. Mohan approves of Raja, and after consulting his friend, Dinanath, arranges for Shalini to get married to Raja.

What Shalini, Mohan and Bobby do not know is that Raja is a burglar, a safe-cracker, who has been recruited by an underworld Don to gain the confidence of the Lal family, and steal the list of secret agents’ from Mohan’s house – by hook or by crook. Does he succeed?

Three songs out of a total of six have already been posted on this blog.

Song-Pyaasa mera dil kitni shaam se (Ehsaan)(1970) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman


Pyaasaa aa Mera Dil
Kitni ee Shaam Se
Aaja Re
Hum Dono Piyen
Ek Hi Jaam Se
Pyaasaa Mera Dil
Kitni Shaam Se
Aaja Re
Hum Dono Piyen
Ek Hi Jaam Se
Pyaasaa Mera Dil

Kab Se Sulag Rahi Hoon Main
Dekho Kahin Jaana Na Sanam
Zara Mere Dil Ko Bhigo De
Teri Nazaron Ki Shabnam
Yoon He Ruke Rehna
Abhi Mujhko Thhaam Ke
Pyaasaa Mera Dil
Kitni Shaam Se
Ho Aaja Re Hum Donon Piyen
Ek Hi Jaam Se
Pyaasaa Mera Dil

Aaja Jab Tak Ho Ujaala
Leke Tujhe Jhoomoon Sajnaa
Choome Tere Honto Ko Ye Pyaala
Pyaalon Ko Main Choomoon Sajnaa
Mukhada Ho Gulaabi
Aaj Tere Naam Se
Pyasaa Mera Dil
Kitni Shaam Se
Aaja Re Hum Donon Piyen
Ek Hi Jaam Se
Pyaasaa Mera Dil

Armaan Hai Tere Sang Behkoon
Gir Ke Uthhoo Main Tere Saath
Armaan Hai Tere Sang Behkoon
Gir Ke Uthhoon Main Tere Saath
Tere Gale Mein Ho Meri Baahein
Mere Dil Pe Ho Tera Hath
Tujhse Chaahat Mein
Mujhe Kitne Kaam Thhe
Pyaasaa Mera Dil
Kitni Shaam Se
ho Aaja Re Hum Dono Piyen
Ek Hi Jaam Se
Pyasaa Mera Dil
Kitni Shaam Se
Aaja Re Hum Donon Piyen
Ek Hi Jaam Se
Pyaasaa Hm Hm Hmm

Thanks for bringing up this song here Satyajit ji. I do not remember to have listened to it earlier. Yes, surely, one of Pancham Da’s forgotten song. And yes one Lata Mangeshkar’s forgotten song too I think.
Nice post.
Thanks again,
