Today 18th August 2022 is the eighty-eighth birthday of Poet, Lyricst, Writer, Director, etc. Shri Sampooran Singh Kalra whom we know by his pen name ‘Gulzar’ (born on 18.08.1934).

Gulzar Saab has come a long way in the film industry starting from ‘Shriman Satyawadi’ (1960) and ‘Kabuliwaala’ (1961) to the recently released (on OTT) ‘Darlings-2022’ (where he wrote lyrics for a song).

Much has been written about him and most of us are well aware of his ‘cinematic excellence’ and his unique ‘poetry’ where he uses the ‘similes’ in his unique ways in his poetry and lyrics in Hindi Film Music.

There have been numerous posts on the blog about Gulzar Saab and there will be many coming in future. So, today, I am not going into the details of his movies and lyrics list which I like most or which have left an indelible mark on my mind. But I would like to mention here that while Gulzar Saab have done so much in all areas of writing, cinema, and poetry I have yet to read many of his works other than movies. However, in the case of movies I can say that I have watched many of the movies directed by him. And l loved them all.

One more thing which I am very fond of Gulzar Saab is his writings for children or his lyrics for the movies for children and the non-filmi albums of his for children (like ‘Karadi Tales etc). I would also like to mention his commentary in two audio albums one for film music i.e., ‘Fursat Ke Raat Din’ and one for Bhupen Hazarika’s song ‘Main Aur Mera Saaya’ which I like very much. Finally, I would like to mention his song for tele serial ‘Mirza Ghalib’ which is also one of my most favorite albums.

There are many things which one can write about him and his works in cinema and other than ‘cinema’. However, today we leave this for another day and straightway come to today’s song to celebrate Gulzar Saab’s birthday on the blog. (This song is lying with us since almost a decade now 😊).

This song is from the 1990 movie ‘Lekin’.

‘Lekin’ was directed by Gulzar for Dinanath Kala Mandir. Hridaynath Mangeshkar and Bal Phoole were the producers of this movie. It was presented by Lata Mangeshkar. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.08.1990.

It had Vinod Khanna, Dimple Kapadia, Amjad Khan, Alok Nath, Moon Moon Sen, Vijayendra Ghatge, Beena, Manohar Singh, Ram Mohan, Ajit Vachhani, Sunil Advani, Shabir Abbas, Masood Akhtar, Yash Sharma, GP Singh, Bashir Khan, Mohafiz Haider, S Madan, Harmeet Singh, Umesh Vyas, Mansi Upadhyay, Sapna Awasthy, Rashmi, Ahmed Siddiqui, and Baby Shabana Khan. Hema Malini made a guest appearance in this movie.

The story of this movie was written by Gulzar, who also wrote the screenplay, dialogues, and lyrics for this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Sadanand Shetty, Ravi, and Aadinath Mangeshkar.

This movie has eight soundtracks as mentioned on the blurb of the audio cassette of this movie. Music is composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. I like all songs of this movie very much and this is one of my most favorite albums. Today’s song is sung by Suresh Wadkar and on screen it is lip-synced by Vinod Khanna.

This movie is an interesting movie to watch, so nothing more about the movie here 😊

Let us listen to today’s song and enjoy Gulzar Saab’s poetry …

We wish Gulzar Saab a very happy birthday today and a happy, healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Over to the song now …

Song-Surmayee shaam is tarah aaye (Lekin)(1990) Singer-Suresh Wadkar, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Hridaynath Mangeshkar

Lyrics

surmayee shaam is tarah aaye ae ae ae
surmayee shaam is tarah aaye
saans lete hain jis tarah saaye ae
surmayee shaam is tarah aaye
saans lete hain jis tarah saaye ae
surmayee shaam

koi aahat nahin badan ki kahin
phir bhi lagta hai tu yahin hai kahin
koi aahat nahin badan ki kahin
phir bhi lagta hai tu yahin hai kahin
waqt jaata sunaayee deta hai
tera saaya dikhayee deta hai ae
jaise khushboo nazar se chhoo jaaye
jaise khushboo nazar se chhoo jaaye
saans lete hain jis tarah saaye
surmayee shaam

din ka jo bhi pahar guzarta hai
koi ehsaan sa utarta hai
din ka jo bhi pahar guzarta hai
koi ehsaan sa utarta hai
waqt ke paaon dekhta hoon main
roz yeh chhaaon dekhta hoon main
aaaye jaise koi khayaal aaye
aaye jaise koi khayaal aaye
saans lete hain jis tarah saaye ae
surmayee shaam is tarah aaye
saans lete hain jis tarah saaye
surmayee shaam

सुरमई शाम इस तरह आए
सुरमई शाम इस तरह आए
सांस लेते हैं जिस तरह साये
सुरमई शाम इस तरह आए
सांस लेते हैं जिस तरह साये
सुरमई शाम

कोई आहट नहीं बदन की कहीं
फिर भी लगता है तू यहीं है कहीं’
कोई आहट नहीं बदन की कहीं
फिर भी लगता है तू यहीं है कहीं’
वक़्त जाता सुनाई देता है
तेरा साया दिखाई देता है
जैसे खुशबू नज़र से छू जाये
सांस लेते हैं जिस तरह साये
सुरमई शाम

दिन का जो भी पहर गुज़रता है
कोई एहसान सा उतरता है
दिन का जो भी पहर गुज़रता है
कोई एहसान सा उतरता है
वक़्त के पाँव देखता हूँ मैं
रोज़ ये छांव देखता हूँ मैं
आए जैसे कोई खयाल आए
आए जैसे कोई खयाल आए
सांस लेते हैं जिस तरह साये
सुरमई शाम इस तरह आए
सांस लेते हैं जिस तरह साये
सुरमई शाम
