In the beginning years of this millennium, we among the last dwellers of last millennium, were kept mesmerized with old Hindi film songs.  This was a willing intoxication, which made it possible to deal all difficulties, happiness, sadness, tragedies etc. that life chose to throw at us.   Often the songs that played randomly in a collection of songs playing on computer would become a subject of discussion.  Once, a close friend said she like this song by Mohammed Rafi Sb a lot:

baa-hosh-o-hawaas mein deewaanaa
ye aaj waseeyat kartaa hoon
ye dil ye jaan mile tumko
main tumse muhabbat kartaa hoon

This song from the film ‘Night In London’ (1967) is posted here.

Another colleague/friend once spoke of this song from ‘Aaye Din Bahaar Ke’ (1966) – “Mere Dushman Tu Meri Dosti Ko Tarse“. Now this song is very interesting in its lyrics/poetry which is actually cursing the beloved.  Total and full of ‘bad-duaa’ ie ill wishing – it is to be seen to be believed, what all the poet is wishing on his beloved friend.

mere dil se sitamgar toone achchi dillagi ki hai
ke banke dost apne doston se dushmani ki hai

mere dushman tu meri dosti ko tarse
mujhe gham dene waale tu khushi ko tarse

 tu phool bane patjhad kaa, tujh pe bahaar na aaye kabhi
meri hi tarah tu tadpe tujhko qaraar na aaye kabhi
jiye tu is tarah ke zindagi ko tarse

itnaa to asar kar jaayen meri wafaayen o bewafaa
ik roz tujhe yaad aayen apni jafaayen o bewafaa
pashemaan hoke roye, tu hansi ko tarse

tere gulshan se zyaadaa veeraan koyi veeraanaa na ho
is duniyaa mein koyi teraa apnaa to kyaa, begaanaa na ho
kisi kaa pyaar kyaa tu berukhi ko tarse

Just falling short of wishing death! ‘jiye tu iss tarah ke zindagi ko tarse’.  There are numerous songs of this situation in Hindi films, too many to count actually.  In the 60’s it can be said, that every other film had this situation song, where the hero or the heroine is wronged, and singing a song lamenting the bewafaai of the beloved.  But I have looked all over the blog and I could not find any other song so full of curses. And this is also the only song on the blog, which is tagged as ‘hate song’ category.  The song still sounds so believable and not odd at all.  All the credit to the team of composers, lyricist and the singer. For this would easily have gone wrong.

There are some more songs, which have somewhat similar emotions and ill-wishes expressed in different forms.  I made a list of songs with those varied expressions.

Lyrics

1 Mere Mehboob Qayaamat Hogi meri tarah tu aahen bhare
tu bhi kisi se pyaar karey
aur rahe wo tujhse parey
toone O sanam dhaaye hain sitam
to ye tu bhool na jaana
ke na tujhpe bhi inaayat hogi
aaj rusva teri galiyon mein muhabbat hogi
mere mehboob qayaamat hogi
aaj rusva teri galiyon mein mohabbat hogi
2 Jo Unki Tamanna Hai Barbaad Ho Ja jo unki tamannaa hai, barbaad ho jaa
to ai dil muhabbat ki kismat banaa de
tadap aur tadap kar abhi jaan de de
yoon marte hain mar jaane waale, dikhaa de
3 Mohabbat Ab Tijaarat Ban Gayi Hai kabhi thha naam iska
bewafaai
magar ab aajkal ye behayaayee
shareefon ki sharaafat ban gayi hai
tijaarat ab mohabbat ban gayi hai
mohabbat ab tijaarat ban gayi hai
tijaarat ab mohabbat ban gayi hai
4 Gairon Pe Karam Apnon Pe Sitam ham bhi the tere manzoor-e-nazar, dil chaahe to ab iqraar na kar
sau teer chalaa seene pe magar, begaanon se milkar waar na kar
begaanon se milkar waar na kar
bemaut kahin mar jaayen na ham
ai jaan-e-wafaa ye zulm na kar,
Ghairon pe karam apnon pe sitam, ai jaan-e-wafaa ye zulm na kar
rahne de abhi thodaa saa bharam,
ai jaan-e-wafaa ye zulm na kar
5 Guzre Hain Aaj Ishq Mein Hum Us Maqaam Se humko na ye gumaan thha,
o sangdil sanam
raah-e-waffa se tere
behak jaayenge kadam
chhalkega zehar bhi teri
aankho ke jaam se
guzre hain aaj ishq mein
hum us maqaam se
guzre hain
o bewaffa,
tera bhi yoon hi toot jaaye dil
tu bhi tadap tadap ke
pukaare ke haaye dil
tera bhi saamnaa ho kabhi,
gham ki shaam se
guzre hain
6 Main Teri Dushman Dushman Tu Mera sab ki jubaan par meri kahaani
mera dasa huwa maange na paani
sabki jubaan par meri kahaani
mera dasa huwa maange na paani
tera tamaasha sab dekhenge
kya hota hai ab dekhenge
dekhega tu na kal ka savera
main naagan tu sapera aa aa
7 Neend Ud Jaaye Teri Chain Se Sone Waale neend ud jaaye teri
chain se sone waale
ye duaa maangte hain
nain ye rone waale
maine ki hain jafaayen
mujhse kyun ho wafaayen
lag gayin mujhko mere
pyaar ki bad-duaayen
tu wafaa karta ham to thhe
tu wafaa karta ham to thhe
bewafa hone waale
neend ud jaaye teri
chain se sone waale
8 Kya Se Kya Ho Gaya Bewafaa Tere Pyaar Mein kyaa se kyaa ho gayaa
bewafaa aaaa
tere pyaar mein
chaahaa kyaa kyaa milaa
bewafaa aaaa
tere pyaar mein
chalo suhaanaa bharam to tootaa
jaanaa ke husn kyaa hai
kahti hai jisko pyaar duniyaa
kyaa cheez kyaa balaa hai
dil ne kyaa naa sahaa
bewafaa aaa aaa
tere pyaar mein
9 Din Dhal Jaaye Haaye Raat Na Jaaye pyaar me jinke sab jag chhoda
aur huye badnaam
unke hi haathon haal hua ye
baithe hain dil ko thaam
apne kabhi the ab hain paraaye
Din dhal jaaye haay raat na jaaye
10 Mo Se Chhal Kiye Jaaye samajhaake main to haari
haan dhamkaaya dini gaari, aur karoon bhi kyaa
dekho moraa jiyraa
haan jiyraa tadpaaye, jiyraa tadpaaye
mohe haay haay dekho sainyaa beimaan
mose chal, mose chal, mose chal kiye jaaye,
11 Bahaaron Ne Mera Chaman Loot Kar mujhe kyaa pataa thaa kabhi ishq mein
raqeebon ko kaasid banaate nahin
raqeebon ko kaasid banaate nahin
khataa ho gayi mujhse kaasid mere
tere haath paighaam kyun de diyaa
bahaaron ne meraa chaman lootkar
12 Meri Zindagi Mein Tum Kyun Aaye haay buri dukhiyaa dil ki
meraa dard badhaao naa baalam
meraa sabr padaa tumse jo kahin
jal jaaoge tum mar jaayenge ham
jal jaaoge tum mar jaayenge ham
dukhiyaa-dil ki wo haay hai
dukhiyaa-dil ki wo haay hai
jo saare zamaane ko sulagaaye
meri zindagi mein tum kyun aaye
13 Thukra Ke Teri Duniya Ko baddua na dil de baithe
tujh ko na dosh doongi main
taqdeer ke bair kiya hai
taqdeer se lad loongi main
main tod chalun
main tod chalun ek pal mein
tod chalun ek pal mein
duniya ka har dastoor
magar tere pyar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoom majboor
thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahun to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor

 

Here is a list of some of my all-time favourite songs by Rafi sahab in the similar situations:

Patthar Ke Sanam Tujhe Hum Ne Mohabbat Ka Khuda Jaana – ‘Patthar Ke Sanam’ (1967)
Dil Ke Jharokhe Mein Tujhko Bitha Kar – ‘Brahmchari’ (1968)
Aaj Ki Raat Mere Dil Ki Salaami Le Le – ‘Ram Aur Shyam’ (1967)
Dil Jo Na Keh Saka – ‘Bheegi Raat’ (1965)
Teri Zulfon Se Judaai To Nahin Maangi Thi – ‘Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai’ (1961)
Rang Aur Noor Ki Baraat Kise Pesh Karun – ‘Ghazal’ (1964)

There are more similar/different songs created for Hindi films for such situations, where dejected lovers either drown in self-pity or end up giving ‘bad-dua’ in a smaller/kinder way, to the beloved.  But most songs of this genre are praying for the happiness of the beloved, who has deceived them, has indulged in ‘bewafaai’ for want of similar expressive word in the English language.  An excellent case in point is this pensive Lata song – “Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Ye“, filmed on Meena Kumari in ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraai’ (1960). Shankar-Jaikishan and Shailendra created this classic song with just the right touch of melancholy and congratulatory mood. With a dose of resignation.

Most songs in this genre, also turn out to be popular, be it the pensive songs of Mukesh, Lata, Suraiyya, Talat Mehmood or Mohammed Rafi.  So the well known songs are all posted. Looking for the theme, I ended up with “Tu Pyaar Hai Kisi Aur Ka” song in ‘Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin’ (1991) by Kumar Sanu. Quite a decent composition with innovative lyrics, that one.

I was sure all well-known Rafi songs in this genre are posted. But as luck would have it, I found the link of this Rafi solo in one of my saved files, which I was just randomly checking. This is a well-known song from the film ‘Dhadkan’ (1972).  Composer is Ravi who also wrote this song with Ali Jalili.  Ali Jalili is an unknown poet for the blog, as this is the first song by him to be posted.   Avinash ji is doing a series of 70’s decade missing movies, so he may be able to find some other films where Ali Jalili has written lyrics. Ali Jalili has written one more song in the same film with Ravi, “Tumse Nazar Mili”, which was also used for advertisement of different products.  My guess is he must be someone connected with advertising jingles, more so as he has collaborated with Ravi, not a regular poet for writing the two songs in this film.

The song is filmed as a wedding reception song, where Sanjay Khan is singing this song for congratulating the bride Mumtaz and groom Roopesh Kumar.  The real feelings of Sanjay Khan are evident, but he is trying to disguise them and give blessings to the couple.

Two songs of the film are already posted in the blog, so this is the 3rd song.

Jab Toone Kuchh Na Kiya
Main To Chala Jidhar Chale Rasta

I have done posts of some songs of the late 70’s and early 80’s, but very few songs of early 70’s. This song has a very deeply meaningful and emotional core, as we expect from Ravi’s compositions usually.  There is the Punjabi dholak music in the background which carries the rhythm of the song.  And Rafi Sb’s singing is again out of this world.  For me this is a known song, as it used to be played regularly on radio.  Again, when one really listens to it with a critical ear, with the aim of judging its merit with other such type of songs, a few are listed above, it is revealed as a fabulous song on all counts.  More fabulous for being a 70’s song.  By now Ravi is a seasoned and senior composer, with huge successes behind him and much more experience of how to get the best out of Rafi.  And Rafi Sb has delivered spectacularly in this song, the only one in the film.  Subtle changes in the way some words are sung in every repeated line, and those are again different for every time he sings the mukhda.  I refuse to believe that anyone else could do so much variation in a single voice, same rhythm and level, two stanza song, in live recording.

The pauses in the lines and words of a line, and starting the next word at the same level as before the pause, what superb control in the vocals. I am not a technical person, in the matter of singing, but if anyone can explain this phenomenon to me, I will be thankful to them. It sounds as a modern-day recording done bit by bit, line by line, and mixed afterwards. Practice makes things perfect and well-rehearsed is the forte of Rafi Sb. But the question is how well rehearsed and how much perfect. I can just conclude that the farishta in the guise of a singer is giving the same dedicated 200 % to a song composed for a new actor of 70’s, as he gave to all his songs, repeated in live shows, which won him accolades and a place is history.

Song – Mere Dost Tujhe Tera Meet Mubarak (Dhadkan) (1972) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Ravi, Ali Jalili, MD – Ravi

Lyrics

tamannaon ki duniya
yun to har insaan basaata hai ea
magar paata wohi hai ea
jo…. yehaan taqdeer laata hai ea

mere dost tujhe
tera meet mubaarak
mere dost tujhe tera meet mubaarak
yeh saaz naya geet mubaarak
mere dost tujhe tera meet mubaarak
mere dost tujhe tera meet mubaarak

kheli hai bahaar se ye phoolon ki kali
khwaabon ki dulhan bade naazon mein pali
kheli hai bahaar se ye phoolon ki kali
khwaabon ki dulhan bade naazon mein pali
palkon pe bitthaana aise sukh dena aa
yaad na kare yeh kabhi baabul ki gali ee
apne baabul ki gali
gaaye khushi ke taraane
aisi preet mubaarak
gaaye khushi ke taraane
aisi preet mubaarak
yeh saaz naya geet mubaarak
mere dost tujhe tera meet mubaarak
mere dost tujhe tera meet mubaarak

chamke kyun na taara us ki qismat ka
jis ko mila ho ye haseen tohfa aa
chamke kyun na taara us ki qismat ka
jis ko mila ho ye haseen tohfaa aa
badaa hi naseeb waala hai wo jag mein
haathh mein ho jis ke aisi pyaari rekha
aisi nyaari rekha
aaj haar bhi kahe
tujhe jeet mubaarak
aaj haar bhi kahe
tujhe jeet mubaarak
yeh saaz naya geet mubaarak
mere dost tujhe tera meet mubaarak
mere dost tujhe tera meet mubaarak

तमन्नाओं कि दुनिया
यूं तो हर इन्सान बसाता है
मगर पाता वही है
जो…. यहां तक़्दीर लाता है

मेरे दोस्त तुझे
तेरा मीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक
ये साज़ नया गीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक

खेली है बहार से ये फूलों कि कली
ख्वाबों कि दुल्हन बड़े नाज़ों में पली
खेली है बहार से ये फूलों कि कली
ख्वाबों कि दुल्हन बड़े नाज़ों में पली
पलकों पे बिठाना ऐसे सुख देना अ अ
याद न करे ये कभी बाबुल कि गली ई
अपने बाबुल कि गली
गाए खुशि के तराने
ऐसी प्रीत मुबारक
गाए खुशी के तराने
ऐसी प्रीत मुबारक
ये साज़ नया गीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक

चमके क्यों न तारा उस की क़िस्मत का
जिस को मिला हो ये हसीन तोह्फ़ा
चमके क्यों न तारा उस की क़िस्मत का
जिस को मिला हो ये हसीन तोह्फ़ा
बड़ा ही नसीब वाला है वो जग में
हाथ में हो जिस के ऐसी प्यारी रेखा
ऐसी न्यारी रेखा
आज हार भी कहे
तुझे जीत मुबारक
आज हार भी कहे
तुझे जीत मुबारक
ये साज़ नया गीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक

Enjoyed the post Nahm ji. I had come across ‘Dhadkan’ during preparation of my 1972’s post and was surprised to note that this movie was yet to be Yippeeee’ed. I had not gone in details of pending songs from this movie then. And today I more surprised to note that this song was still pending 🙂
Like this “This was a willing intoxication, which made it possible to deal all difficulties, happiness, sadness, tragedies etc. that life chose to throw at us.” Yes, I can say, for me this is 200% correct and it grows up more after coming into contact with this blog.
‘Bahaaron ne mera chaman loot kar’ … (fits in this topic or not? comes closer I think?)
Thanks for today’s post and specially this song. Like this song very much (after all Rafi Saab’s songs).
Regards,
