Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 19

February 2012 was a month that saw as many as 178 songs getting covered in the blog, at an average of over 6 songs a day. There were several days when even 8 and nine songs were covered in one day !

The date of 15 February 2012 was a sedate day in comparison. Only four songs were discussed on this date. Here are their details:-

Blog Post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5458 Ek teer chala dil pe laga Mahal(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
5449 Wo dekhen to unki inaayat Funtoosh(1956) Movie YIPPEED by now
5460 Ye kya jagah hai doston Umrao Jaan(1981) 7 songs covered out of 9
5461 Yoon to milney ko ham miley hain bahut Faasle(1985) 3 songs covered out of 10

One can observe that two out of four movies whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago are already YIPPEED. That leaves us with only two movies whose songs can still be discussed today, ten years later, as part of “Blog Ten Year Challenge”.

“Umrao Jaan”(1981) is one such movie. This movie, a musical extravaganza, had as many as nine sons in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Umrao Jaan”(1981) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shahariar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyam. The song is picturised on Rekha, with Rita Rani Kaul, Farooque Shaikh and Umme Farwa also seen in the picturisation.

It is a very short song, less that two minutes long. The audio and video versions contain one extra stanza not available in the other version.

Lyrics of the song have been provided by Prakashchandra. The lyrics combine all the stanzas that are available either in the audio or in the video version.

Nice post. Thanks Atul ji for the post.
Thanks Prakash ji for the lyrics.


Ye zameen Chand se behtar nazar aati hai hume..

Lines in another song from the same movie ..
Zindagi jab bhi teri bazm mein laati hai hume
Ye zameen Chand se behtar nazar aati hai hume.

A rare occurrence.
