Today 19th of August 2022 is the third ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of the legendary music director Mohammed Zahur “Khayyam” Hashmi Saab, whom we fondly know as Khayyam Saab.

He was born on 18th February 1927 in a village Rahon in the District of Jalandhar – Punjab.

From Jalandhar he came to Delhi and from Delhi to Lahore to Mumbai again back to Lahore and finally to Mumbai to start his career in Hindi Films in 1948. He started his musical career as a Singer first, singing a duet in the movie ‘Romeo and Juliet’ (1947) with Zohrabai Ambalewali. And later got his first assignment to compose music for the movie ‘Heer Ranjha’ (1948).

As per the statistics given in the book ‘Khayyam – The Man – His Music’, researched, compiled, and edited by Vishwas Nerurkar and Bishwanath Chatterjee, since 1948 to 2007 Khayyam Saab composed music for 55 movies (released) for 321 songs. As many as 17 movies where he composed music for 60 songs were not released for various reasons. Some of them were shelved and were not completed.

He had also given music to 194 non-filmy songs composed for various albums including patriotic songs and others. He also composed music for 8 TV serials composing 45 songs.

On our blog we have so far covered 201 songs composed by Khayyam Saab.

As a tribute to him today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Tere Shahar Mein’ (1986) in which Khayyam Saab was the music director.

‘Tere Shahar Mein’ was directed by for Sagar Sarhadi for Mahesheka Films Pvt Ltd., Bombay. It was produced by SS Broca. It had Naseeruddin Shah, Smita Patil, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Dipti Naval, Marc Zuber and others.

This movie had four songs composed by Khayyam Saab. Two songs were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Bashar Nawaz and Amir Minai had penned one song each. [Source for this detailed information is the book ‘Khayyam- The Man-His Music’ by Vishwas Nerurkar and Bishwanath Chatterjee.]

I guess that this movie was not released at all. Because very less information is available about the movie and video of the songs or others is not available. The ‘Hindi Filmography – 1986-2000’ mentions only the names of the Producer, Director, and Music Director for this movie title.

But luckily audio of the songs from this movie is available. I came across today’s song only few months back and loved it very much. The song is a gem of song but very less heard.

Today’s song is sung by Singer Bhupinder Singh.

Lyricist for this song is Bashar Nawaz. Incidentally yesterday, 18th August was his birth anniversary. Here is a brief about him taken from ‘Wikipedia’.

Bashar Nawaz (18 August 1935 – 9 July 2015) was one of the prominent progressive Urdu Poet, critic, and lyricist, who penned the song “Karoge Yaad To” in the film ‘Bazaar’ (1982). He picked up the ‘Pulotsav Samman’ and ‘Ghalib Award’ for his contribution to Urdu literature.

He had written lyrics for a few Hindi films such as ‘Bazaar’, ‘Lorie’ and ‘Jaan e Wafa’. Ghulam Ali, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Aziz, Asha Bhosle, Talat Aziz, Bhupinder, and Mehdi Hasan among others have given voice to his ghazals.

He also wrote 13 episodes of the TV serial ‘Amir Khusro’, which was telecast on Doordarshan in 1983. Bashar also penned 26 episodes of the musical opera ‘Saare Jahan se Accha Hindustan Hamara’, which was broadcast by All India Radio. He scripted a serial on Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, which was televised on Doordarshan in 2000.

Nawaz’s poems have been translated into Marathi, Hindi, Punjabi, and Kannada and published in journals and anthologies. As many as ten of his poems have been translated into English by Zaheer Ali. Anwar Saeed from Pakistan has made special mention of Bashar Nawaz in his book ‘Short History of Urdu Literature’. His ghazals and poems have been included in almost all the anthologies of best Urdu poetry from 1960 onward, said noted Urdu poet Khan Shamim. On 9 July 2015, Bashar Nawaz died at the age of 79 in Aurangabad (Maharashtra).

Let us now listen to the today’s lovely song sung by Bhupinder Singh and composed by Khayyam Saab. Lyrics are written by Bashar Nawaz as mentioned above.

With this song the movie ‘Tere Shahar Mein’ makes its debut on the blog.

Our tributes to Khayyam Saab !!!
His immortal compositions will live forever and will continue to mesmerize the coming generations with the magic of his music !!!

Lyrics

bhoole bisre kayi afsaane sunaane aaya aa aa
bhoole bisre kayi afsaane sunaane aaya aa aa
baad ik umr ke phir chaand sirhaane aaya aa
baad ik umr ke phir chaand sirhaane aaya aa aa
bhoole bisre ae

koyi dastak si huyi
phir mere darwaaze par
koyi dastak si huyi
phir mere darwaaze par
phir koyi dard e muhabbat ko jagaane aaya aa
phir koyi dard e muhabbat ko jagaane aaya aa
baad ik umr ke phir chaand sirhaane aaya aa aa
bhoole bisre ae

mehki mehki si hain aen
kuchh aaj fazaayein dil ki ee
mehki mehki si hain aen
kuchh aaj fazaayein dil ki ee
phool hi phool koyi jaise
bichhaane aaya aa
phool hi phool koyi jaise
bichhaane aaya aa
baad ik umr ke
phir chaand sirhaane aaya aa aa
bhoole bisre ae

rang aanchal mein ae ae
nigaahon mein sitaare lekar
rang aanchal mein ae ae
nigaahon mein sitaare lekar
phir se raahon mein koyi
deep jalaane aayaa aa
phir se raahon mein koyi
deep jalaane aayaa aa
baad ik umr ke
phir chaand sirhaane aaya aa aa
bhoole bisre ae

koyi jhonkaa hai wo khushboo ka
jo sehn e dil mein
koyi jhonkaa hai wo khushboo ka
jo sehn e dil mein
ik musaafir ki tarah raat bitaane aaya
ik musaafir ki tarah raat bitaane aaya
baad ik umr ke
phir chaand sirhaane aaya aa aa
bhoole bisre kayi afsaane sunaane aaya aa aa
bhoole bisre ae

भूले बिसरे कई अफसाने सुनाने आया
भूले बिसरे कई अफसाने सुनाने आया
बाद इक उम्र के फिर चाँद सिरहाने आया
बाद इक उम्र के फिर चाँद सिरहाने आया
भूले बिसरे

कोई दस्तक सी हुई
फिर मेरे दरवाज़े पर
कोई दस्तक सी हुई
फिर मेरे दरवाज़े पर
फिर कोई दर्द ए मुहब्बत को जगाने आया
फिर कोई दर्द ए मुहब्बत को जगाने आया
बाद इक उम्र के फिर चाँद सिरहाने आया
भूले बिसरे

महकी महकी सी हैं
कुछ आज फ़ज़ाएं दिल की
महकी महकी सी हैं
कुछ आज फ़ज़ाएं दिल की
फूल ही फूल कोई जैसे
बिछाने आया
फूल ही फूल कोई जैसे
बिछाने आया
बाद इक उम्र के
फिर चाँद सिरहाने आया
भूले बिसरे

रंग आँचल में
निगाहों में सितारे ले कर
रंग आँचल में
निगाहों में सितारे ले कर
फिर से राहों में
कोई दीप जलाने आया
फिर से राहों में
कोई दीप जलाने आया
बाद इक उम्र के
फिर चाँद सिरहाने आया
भूले बिसरे

कोई झोंका है वो खुशबू का
जो सहन ए दिल में
कोई झोंका है वो खुशबू का
जो सहन ए दिल में
इक मुसाफिर की तरह रात बिताने आया
इक मुसाफिर की तरह रात बिताने आया
बाद इक उम्र के
फिर चाँद सिरहाने आया
भूले बिसरे कई अफसाने सुनाने आया
भूले बिसरे

[sehn सहन – an open space in the interior, like an inner courtyard]
[sehn e dil = सहन ए दिल – the space within the heart]

What a beautiful movie BAZAAR was !
An offering from the same team, this movie, too, would have been good.

Anyway, Avinash ji, thanks for the song.
