Today’s song is from film ‘Director’ (1947).

The film was made by Don Films, Punjab. It was directed by S Shafaqat, MA There were two MDs – Lachhiram Tamar and Fateh Ali Khan. Tufail Hoshiyarpuri and Aziz Kashmiri wrote all the 9 songs. HFGK does not credit any song with a singer’s name. However, the uploaders give the details when they upload a song, as given on the actual records. The cast of the film was Salim, Raza, Zeb Qureshi, Zahoor Raja, Arif, Mohini Das, Hafiz and others.

During the years of political turmoil in 1946-1947 and 1948, there was a huge exodus of Hindus and Muslims from both countries, India and the newly formed Muslim country Pakistan. It not only disturbed the whole nation but also created a short time chaos in the Hindi Film Industry. Many Muslim artistes, directors, producers and financiers left for Pakistan. Before going they hurriedly completed the projects on hand somehow. This resulted in a record number of films produced in 1947 as well as a huge number of meaningless films.

In a hurry to complete a film, any person associated with films would direct, act, write songs or even give music. Thus many of such names were never heard again. S Shafaqat, MA, director of this film also seems to be one such case. While migrating to Pakistan during this period or even at a much later time, some producers and directors cheated their Indian colleagues, friends, creditors and ran away stealthily. Here are a few examples.

WZ Ahmed, the owner of Shalimar Pictures, Poona, a producer, director and a studio owner left with his wife Neena. While leaving, he not only carried negatives of all his films, but also conveniently ‘forgot’ to pay salaries and wages of his employees for the previous 3 months. After he left, to recover their dues, some ex-employees got together and produced a film ‘Rangeela Rajasthan’ in 1949. All ex actors, MDs, Lyricists, directors and others connected with the Shalimar studio worked free in the film. The film was not a great success, but they got some money.

The second case is of the famous actor, producer, director and studio owner of Hind Studios, Dadar. During the riots of 1947, his studio was burnt before his eyes. He had lots of bank loan dues and there was no income. He decided to sell his car, house etc. secretly. Then he visited some of his friends in the film industry and borrowed cash money. With all this he coolly and secretly left for Pakistan along with his wife Swarnalata Siyal and the sold out car too !

The third case is of actor Sheikh Mukhtar. He produced a film ‘Noorjahan’ (1967), by investing all his savings. The film flopped. He had a lot of bank loans and also income tax dues to be paid. He quietly took prints of his films and one night escaped to Pakistan !

The point is most of the films produced in 1947 were of no value and people somehow completed their projects. Film ‘Director’ was also one such film. We do not know its story or even its release dates. One of the music directors of this film was Fateh Ali Khan. During the same period, there was another famous qawwaali singer Fateh Ali Khan (he was the father of Pakistan’s famous singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan), who also indulged in cinema in Pakistan. Due to the same names there was a confusion and most people, sites, wiki and even books mixed up these two names and a question on who actually was Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s father ! Even initially I was also confused but then my Facebook friend Khwaja Irfan Anwer guided me to a Blog in Pakistan, where I got the correct information. Thanks to him. So, here is some information on music director Fateh Ali Khan of India.

Ustad Fateh Ali Khan is said to have been born in 1911. He was five years old when he became interested in the famous sitar. His uncle, Ustad Mehboob Ali Khan, was also an expert in music and this instrument. When Fateh Ali Khan grew up, he learned the mysteries and secrets of this art from him.

Ustad Fateh Ali Khan also spent a long time with Master Ghulam Haider. He continued to perform with him in Lahore and Bombay as a sitar player and his skills on this instrument. During this time he also learned the intricacies of music and melodies and the subtleties of art. He later composed music for several films, most notably ‘Aaina’. One was film ‘Aaina’ (1944), along with Gulshan Sufi and the other was film ‘Director’ (1947), along with Lachhiram Tamar. After partition he migrated to Pakistan with all his family. In Pakistan, however, he had better luck in films. He gave music to ‘Do Kinaare’ (1950), ‘Harjaai’ (1952), ‘Shola’ (1952), ‘Bedaari’ (1957) ( a copy of our film ‘Jagriti’ (1954)), ‘Saathi’ (1959) and ‘Tum Na Maano’ (1961). He also sang in the films ‘Waada’ (1957) and ‘Raagini’ (1958). Ustad Fateh Ali Khan was the foremost sitar-player and film music composer of the 1950’s in Pakistan. His compositions in ‘Bedaari’ (1957) became run-away super-hits in Pakistan because they were a heart-felt tribute to the founder of Pakistan, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, and the public’s sentiments about patriotism.

He moved to Rawalpindi in the 1960’s where he joined Radio Pakistan. After the establishment of the Pakistan National Council of Arts, for some time there also trained novice artists to play the sitar. His son, Raees Khan is also an expert sitar player.

Ustad Fateh Ali Khan was also awarded the Presidential Medal for Excellence in Music in Pakistan. (Thanks to irshadgul.com).

One of the cast members of film ‘Director’ was Zahoor Raja. He was a multi-talented person. He was born on 7 July 1918 at Abbottabad (now in Pakistan) and died in England in 1992. He was a well known Hindi/Urdu Film Actor, Producer, Director, Editor, Writer, Singer, Lyricist & Music Composer in Pre Partition Indian cinema. He graduated from editing and story writing to become a producer-director in 1943.

Zahoor Raja was born in a wealthy family in Abbottabad, Pakistan. After schooling, he studied BA from Rawalpindi but could not complete his graduation as he was more interested in sports than in studies. His father, a Police Inspector, was keen in admitting him in Dehradun for a career in the army. But he ran away from home and landed in Bombay with a letter of introduction to film maker AR Kardar. Since he was a very handsome and well built man, getting into the Bombay film industry was not difficult. At that time, Kardar was directing Punjabi film ‘Mirza Sahiban’ (1939) for Ranjit Movietone. Kardar took Zahoor Raja as hero in the film.

Within a year after the release of the film, V Shantaram invited him to join Prabhat Films and was taken on a contract of 3 years. His association with V Shantaram was not beneficial and he did not get much work. Kardar once again came to his rescue and got him employed in National Studios and got him a role in ‘Pooja’ (1940). Thereafter, he got a role in Minerva Moveitone’s ‘Sikandar’ (1941). During the making of the film ‘Sikandar’ (1941), he fell in love with his co-star Meena (Meena Shourie) and married her. The marriage did not last long and Meena later married another handsome actor, Al Nasir in the mid 1940s.

Zahoor Raja later worked as a Hhero in ‘Sewa’ (1941). During this time, while looking for a change from his acting career, he got a chance to direct the film ‘Badal’ (1942) produced under Eastern Pictures where he also acted in the lead role. Though the film failed at the box office, his direction was appreciated by the critics. In 1943, he floated his own film production company, Raja Movietone and made its maiden film ‘Mazaaq’ (1943) which he also directed, acted in a negative role and composed its music. He also acted in the film ‘Bhai’ (1944). His banner produced ‘O Panchhi’ (1944), ‘Ghazal’ (1945) and ‘Dhadkan’ (1946).

In most of the films in which he acted, Zahoor Raja was paired with Radha Rani. He also sang the song “Bhulaane Waale Hamein Bhi Na Yaad Aaya Karo” along with Naseem Akhthar in the Movie ‘Ghazal’ (1945) composed by Gyan Dutt. His last movies in India before moving to Pakistan were ‘Anmol Ghadi’ (1946) and ‘Director’ (1947). He acted in 9 films, directed 5 films, sang 15 songs in 5 films (‘Pooja’ (1940), ‘Sewa’ (1942), ‘Badal’ (1942), ‘Ghazal’ (1945) and ‘Director’ (1945)), wrote lyrics in 1 film (‘Dhadkan’ (1946)) and was MD for 1 film(‘Mazaaq’ (1943)).

After partition, Zahoor Raja returned to Pakistan in 1950 and he was active in the Pakistani film industry until 1966. After 1966, he migrated to England, married an English lady and later died in 1992 in England.

Today’s song is the second song from this film to be featured here. It is sung by Zahoor Raja himself.


Song- Tadap kar jaan labon tak aa gayee (Director)(1947) Singer- Zahoor Raja, Lyricist- Tufail Hoshiarpuri, MD- Fateh Ali Khan

Lyrics

tadap kar jaan labon tak aa gayee
kya tum na aaoge
tadap kar jaan labon tak aa gayee
kya tum na aaoge
jawaani par udaasi chhaa gayi
jawaani par udaasi chhaa gayi
kya tum na aaoge
jawaani par udaasi chhaa gayi

gaye ho chhod kar jab se
gaye ho chhod kar jab se
mujhe tanha jawaani mein
mujhe har ik khushi thhukra gayi
mujhe har ik khushi thhukra gayi
kya tum na aaoge
mujhe har ik khushi thhukra gayi

nigaahon mein jidhar dekho
andhera hi andhera hai
andhera hi andhera hai
muqaddar par syaahi chhaa gayi
muqaddar par syaahi chhaa gayi
kya tum na aaoge
muqaddar par syaahi chhaa gayi

meri barbaadiyaan aakar
meri barbaadiyaan aakar
kabhi kya tum na dekhoge
tumhaare dil mein kya baat aa gayi
tumhaare dil mein kya baat aa gayi
kya tum na aaoge
tadap kar jaan labon tak aa gayee

तड़प कर जां लबों तक आ गई

तड़प कर जां लबों तक आ गई
क्या तुम ना आओगे
जवानी पर उदासी छा गई

क्या तुम ना आओगे
जवानी पर उदासी छा गई

गए हो छोड़ कर जबसे
गए हो छोड़ कर जबसे
मुझे तन्हा जवानी में
मुझे हर एक खुशी ठुकरा गई

मुकद्दर पर सियाही छा गई
मुकद्दर पर सियाही छा गई
क्या तुम ना आओगे
मुकद्दर पर सियाही छा गई

मेरी बर्बादीयां आ कर
मेरी बर्बादीयां आ कर
कभी क्या तुम ना देखोगे
तुम्हारे दिल में क्या बात आ गई
तुम्हारे दिल में क्या बात आ गई
क्या तुम ना आओगे
तड़प कर जां लबों तक आ गई

Hullo Atuldom

‘Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein’ (RHTDM – 2001) was produced by Vashu Bhagnani and directed by Gautam Vasudev Menon. It was either a remake or made along side Gautam Vasudev Menon’s Tamil ‘Minnale’. ‘Minnale’ released in February and RHTDM released in October 2001. Both the versions had R Madhavan play the lead, music was by Harris Jayaraj (I think both the movies were the composers’ debut in the respective languages).

RHTDM was the debut of, second runner-up Miss India 2000, Dia Mirza who had gone to be crowned Miss Asia Pacific 2000. Indian beauties Lara Dutta & Priyanka Chopra were that year’s Miss Universe & Miss World respectively.

‘Rehnaa Hai Terra Dil Mein’ (please note that the extra alphabets in the title may have something to do with numerology and that is how it appeared in the movie’s title card) had Saif Ali Khan as the other male protagonist along with Vrajesh Hirjee, Tannaz Irani (she was Tannaz Currim back then), Anupam Kher, Navin Nischol, etc in the cast. Sameer was the lyricist and Bombay Jayashree, Roop Kumar Rathod, Sonu Nigam, Kavitha Krishnamurthy, Shaan, Preeti – Pinky, Sukhvinder Singh, Shekhar Ravijani, Sunidhi Chauhan, Vasundhara Das and KK were the playback singers used.

The movie was the story of a love-struck man,  (unknowingly) stealing the identity of his former college foe, to pursue his lady-love and the eventual repercussions he has to face, when his cover is blown before he could come clean.

I had originally zeroed in to the songs of this movie to wish R Madhavan on his birthday which was on 1st of June. R Madhavan was born in Jamshedpur to South Indian parents and completed his graduation from Kolhapur. In college he was a leading NCC cadet and had the opportunity to go to England and get training in the Royal Air-Force, Royal Navy and British Army. I read somewhere that he had briefly toyed the idea of joining the armed forces too but missed the cut-off by a few months. A brief stint in modelling helped him gain a foothold in the entertainment industry via the television industry. I remember him playing Satish Shah’s son-in-law and Mandira Bedi’s husband in ‘Ghar Jamai’ in the ’90s. His first chance in Indian films came via Kannada movies.

Before I could complete the post in came the news of the untimely death of the KK aka Krishnakumar Kunnath after a stage performance in Kolkatta. He was only 53.

KK was born to South Indian parents (like Madhavan) in New Delhi. He was an alumnus of Kirori Mal College. He was the voice of the jingles in the ’90s before AR Rehman gave him a break in Tamil. His debut in Hindi films was the full throat song “Tadap Tadap Ke Is Dil Se Aah Nikalti Rahi” from the film ‘Ham Dil De Chuke Sanam’ (1999) under the baton of Ismail Darbar (the song is already present on our blog with a post by Nahmji).

Yesterday fellow-Atulite Satyajitji shared a short clip featuring hits of KK and I found most of them had been my favorites; of course without knowing who was singing those. I must also admit that I am as ignorant about the current lot of singers as I was about the singers of the Golden Era of Indian Music. Just as some songs are prophetic about the concerned writer, music director, singer etc. There is a song which KK sang “Hum Rahe Ya Na Rahe Kal” from the non film album ‘Pal’. It seems that he had sung this song on-stage on that fateful evening of 31st May.

For this post I present the song which I had originally chosen to wish Madhavan on his birthday on 1st June.

But now this song unfortunately also happens to be a tribute to KK.

Song – Sach Keh Raha Hai Deewaana (Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein) (2001) Singer – KK, Lyrics – Sameer, MD – Harris Jayraj

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 20#
——————————————

Today, I bring on blog the last of 1972 films that were not yet available on the blog. Yes, some films are still missing, as is detailed later below, but for those films, the songs and other information is not available so far.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Zameen Aasmaan’ (1972). This movie is the 129th film of 1972, taken in alphabetical order, as per the Geet Kosh. There are a total of 131 movies listed for 1972. There are two more movies after this one. At 130 is the movie ‘Zaroorat’. This movie has no songs. And the last movie alphabetically in this list is ‘Zindagi Zindagi’ which had already been Yippeee’d on the blog.

Movies with the same title ‘Zameen Aasmaan’, were also released in 1946 and in 1984. Both these movies have been represented on the blog with their songs. I guess that the today’s movie was a forgotten movie even though its music was composed by Kishore Kumar and its’ having a decent star-cast too.

‘Zameen Aasmaan’ was directed by A Veerappan for AV Films. Eesmayeel Shroff was the Chief Assistant Director. Veerappan was also the producer of this movie. He also wrote the story and the screenplay. He developed the story based on the Malayalam play and film – ‘Kadal Paalam’ by KT Mohammed. Dialogues were written by Rajinder Singh Atish. Editing of this movie was done by R Bhaskar. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.07.1972.

The star cast of the movie is listed as Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Rekha, Yogeeta Bali, Ramesh Deo, Indrani Mukherjee, Achala Sachdev, Dulari, Ashim Kumar, OP Sharma, SK Sharma, Kiron, Sushil Kumar, Master Tarun Kumar Gupta, Baby Charulata, Gemini Balu, Sharad  Kumar, and others.

This movie has six songs written by two songwriters – Indeevar (five songs) and Anand Bakshi (one song). Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, and Asha Bhonsle were the playback singers for the songs. Music was composed by Kishore Kumar. Basu Chakraborty was the assistant music director. Here is the list of songs in this movie as provided in HFGK – Vol-V (1971-1980).

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s Lyricist
01 Aankhen Tumhaari Do Jahaan … Kishore Kumar Indeevar
02 Kisne Yahaan Kisko Jaanaa… Asha Bhonsle Indeevar
03 Ham Tum Chaley, Tum Chaley. Ham Chaley Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle Anand Bakshi
04 Ik Raat Ki Hai Baat, Main Soyi Thhi Akeli Asha Bhonsle Indeevar
05 Na Ro Ae Mere Dil Yahaan, Tera Nahin Hai Ye Jahaan Lata Mangeshkar Indeevar
06 Are Girgit Jaisa Aaja Ka Insaan, Badle Pal Pal Rang Kishore Kumar Indeevar

With this post today, ‘Zameen Aasmaan’ of 1972 makes its debut on the blog.

Let us review the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding today’s movie which is the 129th film in the alphabetical list of films of 1972, as per Geet Kosh. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post “Hai Jo Teri Tamanna Hai Wohi Meri Tamanna” from movie ‘Ustaad Mera Naam’ (which is the 125th in list) to today’s movie song-post.

*Notes:

  1. Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johnny’, ‘Hunterwaali’, ‘Lady James Bond’, ‘Miss Chaalbaaz’ (Tingoo Agent 000) and ‘Rajdhani Express’ seem to be unavailable as of now.
  2. There is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’, ‘Jaadu Nagari’ and ‘Maaya Darpan’ as mentioned above.

So, with the addition of today’s movie, we have added all the ‘so far’ missing movies (of which the songs are available) from the year 1972 on the blog. This year i.e. 2022, we are celebrating the fifty years of 1972 movies. We have brought on and discussed at a glance 20 movies that were missing from our blog, and for which songs are available. Also, the 21st such movie of 1972 viz., ‘Kavi Sammelan’ is being discussed as a separate series, bringing in all the available ‘poetry based’ songs of that movie.

Today’s song is a special song as this song is sung by the legendary Lata Mangeshkar under the baton of Kishore Kumar – the music director. I think this is the only song she sung under the baton of Kishore Kumar (hope I am correct). The song is lip-synced on screen by Yogeeta Bali. (Other than Yogeeta Bali we can see a dog and a horse in the picturisation of this song). Lyrics are by Indeevar and music is composed by Kishore Kumar.

I would request knowledgeable readers to kindly throw light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to the today’s song, and welcome ‘Zameen Aasmaan-1972’ on the blog.

Song – Na Ro Ae Mere Dil Yahaan (Zameen Aasmaan) (1972) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Indeevar, MD – Kishore Kumar

Lyrics

na ro ae mere dil yahaan

na ro ae mere dil yahaan
tera nahin ye jahaan
fursat kise hai ae
samjhe jo koi
tere aansuon ki zubaan
na ro ae mere dil yahaan
tera nahin ye jahaan
fursat kise hai
samjhe jo koi
tere aansuon ki zubaan
na ro ae mere dil yahaan

deewaani duniya rishte dilon ke
daulat se kyon jodti hai
deewaani duniya rishte dilon ke
daulat se kyon jodti hai
samaajon ke jhoothe rivaazon ki khaatir
apnon ke dil todti hai
koi nahin saath dega aa
sab to hai parchhaiaan
aa aa koi nahin saath dega aa
sab to hai parchhaiaan
aisa gar hai jahaan
to jeene ke qaabil kahaan
fursat kise hai ae
samjhe jo koi
tere aansuon ki zubaan
na ro ae mere dil yahaan

aise jahaan mein rahe koi kaise
lage pyaar par jis mein pehre
aise jahaan mein rahe koi kaise
lage pyaar par jis mein pehre
gila auron se kya lagaaye hain dil par
apnon hi ne ghaav gehre
kho ja andheron mein aise ae ae
jaise gagan mein dhuaan
aa aa aa kho jaa andheron mein aise
jaise gagan mein dhuaan
zaroorat hai teri kisey
mita de tu apna nishaan
fursat kise hai ae
samjhe jo koi
tere aansuon ki zubaan

na ro ae mere dil yahaan
na ro ae mere dil yahaan
tera nahin ye jahaan
fursat kise hai ae ae
samjhe jo koi
tere aansuon ki zubaan
tere aansuon ki zubaan

ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ

ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ
तेरा नहीं ये जहाँ
फुर्सत किसे है
समझे जो कोई
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान
ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ
तेरा नहीं ये जहाँ
फुर्सत किसे है
समझे जो कोई
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान
ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ

दीवानी दुनिया रिश्ते दिलों के
दौलत से क्यों जोड़ती है
दीवानी दुनिया रिश्ते दिलों के
दौलत से क्यों जोड़ती है
समाजों के झूठे रिवाजों की खातिर
अपनों के दिल तोड़ती है
कोई नहीं साथ देगा॰॰आ
सब तो हैं परछाइयाँ
आ आ आ कोई नहीं साथ देगा
सब तो हैं परछाइयाँ
ऐसा गर है जहाँ
तो जीने के काबिल कहाँ
फुर्सत किसे है
समझे जो कोई
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान
ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ

ऐसे जहाँ में रहे कोई कैसे
लगे प्यार पर जिस में पहरे
ऐसे जहाँ में रहे कोई कैसे
लगे प्यार पर जिस में पहरे
गिला औरों से क्या
लगाए हैं दिल पर
अपनों ही ने घाव गहरे
खो जा अँधेरों में ऐसे॰॰ए
जैसे गगन में धुआँ
ज़रूरत है तेरी किसे
मिटा दे तू अपना निशां
फुर्सत किसे है
समझे जो कोई
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान

ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ

ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ
तेरा नहीं ये जहाँ
फुर्सत किसे है
समझे जो कोई
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान

A voice that sounds quite mature, dripping with heavy bass – a baritone that appeared to emerge from somewhere deep inside. Playing this sound on the songs like “Zindagi Pyaar Ki Do Chaar Ghadi Hoti Hai”, or “Lele Dard Paraaya Kar De Door Gham Ka Saaya”, or “Jaane Wo Kaise Log The Jinke Pyaar Ko Pyaar Mila”, “Ganga Aaye Kahaan Se. . .”, and many more of this ilk, sounds so natural and, well, so suitable. The deep bass gets to the perfect tone of poignancy that is needed for these songs.

And yet Sachin Da would choose this voice to present the best of the romance-of-the-young-heart songs, when way back in 1952, he recorded “Ye Raat Ye Chandni Phir Kahaan” for a young guitar strumming conman on screen. He would return to this voice again and again, for the same effect. Fast forward to 1955 and he brings on the same voice for a soft romantic song of the night – “Chup Hai Dharti Chup Hain Chaand Sitaare”. Then in 1958, he would once again return to the same voice for the thumping lyrical “Hai Apna Dil To Awaara”, that astoundingly carried the day as the playback. And then in 1962 would be “Na Tum Hamen Jaano. . .“. All four songs – lip synced by Dev Anand onscreen. Only Sachin Da could have visualized the effect of this voice on these romantic creations. And of course, the voice itself, to be able to bring in that young heart effect into the life breath of these songs.

The effect is so endearingly replicated in other songs like “Keh Rahi Hai Zindagi, Jee Sakey To Jee”, and “Beqaraar Kar Ke Hamen Yun Na Jaaiye”, and “Ye Nayan Darey Darey”, or even in “Ek Baar Zara Phir Keh Do Mujhe Sharma Ke Tum Deewaana”, and many more.

Celebrating the birth centennial (on 16 June, 2020) of this magical voice – Hemant Kumar.

This song is from the lesser known film – ‘Raami Dhoban’ from 1953. The film is produced by Ramesh Vyas for the banner Navkala Niketan, Bombay. The film is directed by Hiren Bose, who is also the music director. The star cast of this film is Kamini Kaushal, Abhi Bhattacharya, Tiwari, Ashita, Ramesh Vyas, Shalini, Bannerjee, Mishra, Sankatha Prasad, Rai Mohan, Gautam, Sachin Ghosh, Nandini, Sona Chatterji, Uma Devi, Sulochana Chatterjee, and Prem Adeeb.

The film is a veritable musical, with as many as 14 songs, all written by Ram Murty. Five over these songs are already featured on our blog.

This song is such a beautiful rendition of a sad song of love – “Panchhi Ud Gaya Preet Laga Ke”. I pulled out and heard this beautiful solo song for the first time today. The words tell of a beloved that stole the heart, and has now left, leaving behind loneliness and a broken heart. The words are lovely, and so is the rendition. A vintage Hemant Da song.

Missing Films of 1960s – 113
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Famous last words, and all the associated idiomatic paraphernalia that goes along – well, it has happened with me too. 🙂 On Monday last (1st July), while posting the 112th episode of this series, I had, with much fanfare announced that no more films of 1960s are traceable at present. And the very same day, our dear Sadanand ji pointed me towards a link on YT – a song uploaded by Shri Girdhari Lal ji (of Jodhpur), from the film ‘Rang Raliyaan’ of 1962. This film is on the list of 79 films that I posted in that article – list of films that are still to be traced.

And so in my defense I want to state that Girdhari Lal ji is one of the earliest sources that I consulted, while searching for the missing films and songs. That must have been about 3 to 4 years ago, when I had started working on this series. At that point in time, he had told me that, he had not yet started working on the films from 1960s, so he could not say with certainty. Later, as I was getting to close this series, I should have checked with him again, but missed doing that. And this upload has been online for about 11 months now. 🙂

In my article I have written at one place,

The last column gives the no. of films which are not yet available, and I mean, not available from any source, period. As far as my search of the past almost four years reveals, songs of these films are not available anywhere in public domain. I could be wrong, and oh boy, I will be the happiest person to be told that I am wrong 🙂 .

Yes, I am happy to get hold of songs from a very rare and obscure film, and also to bring this film on board. And I heartfully thank Sadanand ji for bringing this song and upload to my notice. Further, I am so glad that providence made me close that article with the lines,

I suspend further publications in this series. I say suspend, because I want to leave the door open for the possibility that any of the remaining 79 films of this decade, may turn up, only God knows where and when.

Well, one of the films did turn up right away. 🙂

Not only has Girdhari Lal ji uploaded these songs online, he also sent me many more details about the film itself, which I am presenting here.

The film is produced by Achchhe Saheb (name given in Geet Kosh). It is directed by Aziz Kashmiri, who has also written the songs in this film. The cast of actors of this film includes Meena, Manhar Desai, Manju, Randheer, Dalpat and Om Prakash.

The film has seven songs, one of which is a long two part song. All songs are written by Aziz Kashmiri. Three music directors have contributed to the film – Vinod, Lachhiram and S Bannerji.  This particular song is composed by Lachhiram. The singing voice is that of Mubarak Begum.

This song is vintage Mubarak Begum. As I listened to this song multiple times, the rendition and the nuances kept taking my mind back to her other hit songs like “Tumhaara Dil Mere Dil Ke Muqaabil Ho Nahin Sakta. . . Bemuravvat Bewafaa. . .”, “Aankhon Aankhon Mein Har Ek Raat Guzar Jaati Hai”, and “Mere Aansuon Pe Na Muskura”. A sad song of a broken heart, I simply do not seem to be able to get enough of listening to it. A very rare and a very obscure addition to our blog – a song whose existence we have not been aware of all these years.

And yes, this find also gives hope and encouragement that more of the missing films and songs may be recovered in time.
Aameen.

 

Song – Kyon Hum Ne Mohabbat Ki Un Se  (Rang Raliyaan) (1962) Singer – Mubarak Begum, Lyrics – Aziz Kashmiri, MD – Lachhiram

Lyrics 

kya bhale din the
tabiyat jab kahin aai na thi
chot wo khaai hai dil par
jo kabhi khaai na thi

kyon hum ne mohabbat ki un se
oo oo oo
kyon hum ne mohabbat ki un se
kyon dil ka sukoon barbaad kiya
kyon un ke liye badnaam huye
oo oo oo
kyon un ke liye badnaam huye
kyon khaana e gham abaad kiya
kyon hum ne mohabbat. . .

daaman mein hai gham tum kya jaano
daaman mein hai gham tum kya jaano
majboor hain hum tum kya jaano
tum kya jaano
wo dil ki khushi paayenge kahaan
oo oo oo
wo dil ki khushi paayenge kahaan
kismet ne jinhen nashaad kiya
kyon hum ne mohabbat. . .

ae baad e saba tu jaa ke zara
ae baad e saba tu jaa ke zara
keh dena ye paighaam mera
paighaam mera
hum aur to sab kuchh bhool gaye
oo oo oo
hum aur to sab kuchh bhool gaye
ik teri wafaa ko yaad kiya..aa..aa. . .

क्या भले दिन थे
तबीयत जब कहीं आई ना थी
चोट वो खाई है दिल पर

क्यों हमने मोहब्बत की तुमसे
ओ ओ ओ
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत की तुमसे
क्यों दिल का सुकूँ बर्बाद किया
क्यों उनके लिए बदनाम हुये
ओ ओ ओ
क्यों उनके लिए बदनाम हुये
क्यों खाना ए ग़म आबाद किया
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत॰ ॰ ॰

दामन में है ग़म तुम क्या जानो
दामन में है ग़म तुम क्या जानो
मजबूर हैं हम तुम क्या जानो
तुम क्या जानो
वो दिल की खुशी पाएंगे कहाँ
ओ ओ ओ
वो दिल की खुशी पाएंगे कहाँ
किस्मत ने जिन्हें नाशाद किया
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत॰ ॰ ॰

ए बाद ए सबा तू जा के ज़रा
ए बाद ए सबा तू जा के ज़रा
कह देना ये पैग़ाम मेरा

हम और तो सब कुछ भूल गए
ओ ओ ओ
हम और तो सब कुछ भूल गए
इक तेरी वफ़ा को याद किया॰॰आ॰॰आ॰ ॰ ॰

Today’s song is from an obscure film – ‘Jeb Katra’ aka ‘Pick Pocket’ aka ‘Girahkat’. The film may be obscure, but the song is extremely melodious and it is a pleasure to listen to such a song. I have liked it very much. The film was produced by actress-singer Brijmala’s home production Brij Prakash Productions. Looking at the cast of film and its director, it seems to be a stunt film. It was advertised as a Social Stunt film – whatever that means. To me it was like saying ‘a religious murder mystery film’ !

I have seen this film’s advertisements in the Jan and Feb 1946 issues of magazine Film India. In the Jan issue the lyricist is given as Shams Lucknowi and the composer as Bashir Khan Dehalvi. Next month – Feb – the ad says the lyricist is Ahsan Rizvi and MD is Nisar Bazmi.

The cast of the film was Navin Yagnik, Raj Rani, Samson, Ali, Radha, Habib, Sandow etc. The role of the ‘Pick Pocket’ was done by Samson, as mentioned on a photo of the film. The film was directed by Nari Ghadiyali- a veteran of C grade stunt films. Nari (Nariman) was a Parsee.

From the silent film era, Parsee community has been involved in film industry in different ways. In about every department of film making, there has been a Parsee, sometime somewhere. Parsee community is a very small entity. They never, even at their best times, exceeded a population of 3 lakhs in entire India. This is the only community which is truly a Minority community with just about 70000 people in entire India now. They have never ever asked for any reservation from the government. Parsees have significantly contributed to India’s industrial growth. Parsee greats like Tata, Godrej and Wadias have been extremely philanthropic too.

Parsees are mainly seen in Bombay and so it was no wonder that they joined the film industry, but a Parsee in Bengal has been a Pioneer in Cinema in the eastern India. JF Madon (1856 to 1923) had a roaring Parsee Theatre business in Bombay, but he shifted to Calcutta in 1902 and built an empire of Theatres and Cinema making. At one time the Madons had control on 127 Theatres in India. They made silent and talkie films in Bangla and Hindi. After his death, his third son JJ Madon took over. However, they closed their film business in 1937 and concentrated on their other interests like, imports, foods, pharma, insurance and real estate.

In Bombay, who can forget the contribution of Ardeshir Irani in starting the Talkie era with his ‘Alam Ara’ in 1931 ? In the early era, many Parsees contributed to Hindi cinema like Homi Master, Sohrab Modi, Sarswati Devi, JBH and Homi Wadia, John Cawas etc. In later period, the Irani sisters (Honey, Daisy and Manaka), Aruna Irani, Shammi, Fali Mistry and many others contributed. Earlier, in the field of direction, there were two well known names- Aspi (Aspinder) Irani and Nari (Nariman) Ghadiyali. Aspy Irani had married actress Husn Banu and Nari Ghadiyali had married actress Pramila. Both worked for stunt films made by another Parsee group – Wadia Brothers. Today’s film is also directed by Nari Ghadiyali. He directed 25 films, starting with ‘Jungle King’ (1939) to ‘Murad’ (1961).

The hero of film ‘Jeb Katra’ was Navin Yagnik, who was frequently seen in  C grade action/stunt films. Such films were made with tight budgets by small producers and hence the actors did not earn much money. To earn more money, their endeavour used to be to get roles in social films or films of other genres, especially made by well known production houses. Their payments were much better and also timely. Thus Navin also worked in some social films made by big banners.

As such stunt films declined in the latter half of the 50s, compared to 30s and 40s, as many producers like the Wadias, Mohan Pictures etc. shifted their focus to social films. Similarly major stunt film actors like Master Vithal, Master Bhagwan, Baburao Pehelwan, Azim Bhai etc. started getting roles in social films. Recently, I found a reference to Navin Yagnik in the autobiography of Hansa Wadkar- ‘Sangte Aika’ (‘सांगते ऐका’)  roughly translated as ‘Listen, I tell you’. In it she said. . . “My hero in this film was one Navin Yagnik, a handsome boy from UP. He was very shy and after the shootings, he would quietly sit in one corner reading something. He never joined our drink parties, nor he participated in any other group activity. I was attracted towards him but he gave no response. He sent me invitation card of his marriage, when it was fixed.’  Navin Yagnik (3-10-1912 to 28-10-1977) worked only in 30 films from film ‘The Mill’ (1934) to ‘Bhagwat Mahima’ (1955).

The MD for film ‘Jeb Katra’ was Nisar Bazmi. He was one of those musicians who migrated to Pakistan much later after the partition. There is a general perception among Indians that all those who migrated to Pakistan had a tough time there and they died in poverty. While this is true in cases of many actors and actresses, the converse is true about music composers.

Music directors who were worthless, unknown and unsuccessful, who gave music to obscure of B and C grade films here, in India, prospered very well in Pakistan. Composers like GA Chishti, Nisar Bazmi, Firoz Nizami, Tufail Faruqui, Rashid Atre, Inaayat Hussain, Fateh Ali Khan, Inaayat Nath, Khursheed Anwar were not very famous or popular in India, but in Pakistan almost every musician from India became famous, popular and successful. For example, Nisar Bazmi gave music to 40 films (only 27 released) in India. They were mostly C grade films and most songs were forgotten here. Same person, in Pakistan gave music to almost 60 films, won several awards and became famous and successful. How this happened ? What is the mystery ?

To understand this we must know what happened in Pakistan after partition and how was their film and music industry. According to an article in Wiki, since 1947, Pakistan film and music industry underwent several changes. It is worth repeating here. The period is divided as following,

‘Due to shortage of composers, all were welcomed with open arms. Those who had talents did extremely well here. Unfortunately the second generation of composers of calibre were not prepared and once these migrants disappeared from the scene, the musical fields of Pakistan dried up. According to  Wiki, there are 7 ages in Pakistan film music –

  1. Independence and growth – 1947-1958
  2. The Golden Age of Pak Film Music –  1959 – 1977
  3. The Age of Disaster – 1977 – 1988 (Onslaught of VCR and brain drain to Bangladesh in 1971)
  4. Politics, Islamisation and Downfall – 1979 – 1987
  5. Collapse – 1988 – 2002
  6. Decline – 2002 – 2009
  7. New Wave and Hope – 2010 onwards’

Anyway, Nisar Bazmi migrated to Pakistan during the Golden Age period and got all the benefits. Let us see what happened to Nisar Bazmi in Pakistan. His last film in India was ‘Mister Toofan’, released in 1963. Nisar migrated to Pakistan in 1962. Producer Sibtain Fazli of Fazli brothers offered him first film ‘Aisa Bhi Hota Hai’. The music of this film became hit and very popular and there was no looking back for Nisar Bazmi. He gave music to 57 Pak films. He won Nigar Awards 7 times and also won ‘Pride of Performance’ award from the President.

His last film was in 1981. He came back to Karachi and started teaching aspiring singers, but only one of them became a famous singer. He regretted that the younger generation looked for quick money and did not put hard work. None of his 8 sons loved music. They all followed different avocations. In his later life he was famous for learning Quran by heart.

Bazmi sahib taught music to up-and-coming youngsters, but only Faisal Latif managed to become somewhat popular. When asked why his students like Shafiq-ur-Rehman, Tanveer Afridi, Shabana and Shazia Kausar are unable to reach the top, he said, “My job was to train them, which I did. Now it is up to the musicians to utilize them as I am sure they have the talent to be the best.” When asked if the youth (of Pakistan) are going in the right direction, Bazmi Sb felt that it was because of our youths’ lack of interest that our music is not what it used to be. “A youngster today doesn’t want to be taught like the legendary singers. His only interest is to become rich and famous in a short time, which is certainly the wrong way.”

Nisar Bazmi died on 22-3-2007 at Karachi.

Today’s song from film ‘Jeb Katra’ is an exceptionally melodious song comparable to any leading composer’s song in India. With such tunes in his repertoire, I wonder why Nisar bazmi could not gain fame here itself. Usually when the film is a failure, the music of that film does not reach more audience and hence does not get exposure to become popular. Of course there are songs which became popular from flop films also. After all, it is a matter of luck only.

Song – Chaandni Raaten Kya Huin (Jeb Katra) (1946) Singer – Zohrabai Ambaalewali, Lyrics – Ahsaan Rizvi, MD – Nisar Bazmi

Lyrics

Blog Day : 3730 Post No. : 14673

The palat side of today’s song, was posted – goodness, four years ago.  And Sandhya ji is now completing 87 years today, and stepping into her 88th. Abundant greetings to Sandhya Mukherji – we wish for her good health and comfort, and that we may get many more such opportunities to greet her.

Four years back, I had posted the lovely, lively “O Re Jeene Waale, Hans Le Gaa Le Dhoom Mach Le” – one of her very few non film songs recorded in Hindi. From the same gramophone record (GE 24065 – Columbia), I present today, the song from the other side. A more poignant song, a sad song of separation – this song is no less iconic. As I tried to search for more, I drew a blank (so far).  It seems that this gramophone record and these two songs may well be the only two non-film Hindi songs that have been recorded by Sandhya ji.

For a brief bio sketch of this artist, I request readers to go back to the song referred above, and view that article.

She worked at New Theatres from 1948 to 1950, and sang under the music direction of RC Boral. She came to Bombay in 1950 – ‘Sazaa’ (1951) was her debut in the Bombay industry, after which she recorded songs for another eight films. And then, in 1956 she decided to return to Calcutta, after having recorded “Maine Jo Li Angdaai. . .” under the music direction of Salil Da, for the film ‘Jaagte Raho’ (1956). After that, she stayed only in Calcutta, and recorded a few songs for a handful of Hindi films.

Today’s song is penned by Prem Dhawan and is set to music by Kanu Ghosh. The melancholia of this song is such a surprising antipode of the song “O Re Jeene Waale. . .”. Listen and enjoy.

Once again, greetings to Sandya ji, and best wishes for a healthy and comfortable years ahead.


Song – Tum Gaye Lut Gaya Pyaar Ka Ye Jahaan (Sandhya Mukherji NFS)(1950) Singer – Sandhya Mukherji, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Kanu Ghosh

Lyrics

tum gaye
lut gaya
pyaar ka
ye jahaan
na rahi
wo khushi
na rahe
armaan

tum gaye
lut gaya
pyaar ka
ye jahaan
na rahi
wo khushi
na rahe
armaan

meri aankhon ki tum
roshni le gaye
meri aankhon ki tum
roshni le gaye
mere hothon ki tum
sab hansi le gaye
ab meri zindagi
zindagi hai kahaan

wo bahaaren gayin
wo nazaare gaye
wo bahaaren gayin
wo nazaare gaye
meri raaton se wo
chaand taare gaye
na meri hai zameen
na mera aasmaan

tum gaye
lut gaya
pyaar ka
ye jahaan
na rahi
wo khushi
na rahe
armaan

तुम गए
लुट गया
प्यार का
ये जहां
ना रही
वो खुशी
ना रहे
अरमां

तुम गए
लुट गया
प्यार का
ये जहां
ना रही
वो खुशी
ना रहे
अरमां

मेरी आँखों की तुम
रोशनी ले गए
मेरी आँखों की तुम
रोशनी ले गए
मेरे होठों की तुम
सब हंसी ले गए
अब मेरी ज़िंदगी
ज़िंदगी है कहाँ

वो बहारें गईं
वो नज़ारे गए
वो बहारें गईं
वो नज़ारे गए
मेरी रातों से वो
चाँद तारे गए
ना मेरी है ज़मीं
ना मेरा आसमां

तुम गए
लुट गया
प्यार का
ये जहां
ना रही
वो खुशी
ना रहे
अरमां

Here is the ninth and final song from “Shaarda”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is picturised as a drunkard song on Raj Kapoor. Those who have seen Mukesh sing a drunkard song in “Jaagte Raho” (1959),could well expect Mukesh to sing this song, but this song is sung by Manna Dey ! Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ranmchandra.

The song situation in this song is rather more sombre than what was the case in “Jaagte Raho” (1959), as far as I can tell. IT is a rather lesser known drunkard song, but it can for that reason, may be regarded as a forgotten gem.

With this song, “Shaarda”(1957) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Song-Duniya ne to mujhko chhod diya (Shaarda)(1957) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

duniya ne to mujhko chhod diya
khoob kiya
arey khoob kiya
botal ki taraf munh mod diya
botal ki taraf munh mod diya
khoob kiya arrey ae khoob kiya

wo ghadiyaan khawaab ki ghadiyaan thhin een een
mai jin ghadiyo mein jaaga tha
duniya ki khushi ek saaya thhi
duniya ki khushi ek saaya thhi
main jiski lagan mein bhaaga thha
main jiski lagan mein bhaaga thha
paanvon ko jo mere tod diya
khoob kiya
arrey khoob kiya
botal ki taraf munh mod diya
khoob kiya
arrey ae khoob kiya

jab mujhse zamaana door hua aa aa aa aa
jab mujhse zamaana door hua
botal ne kaha
bataaun kya kaha
nahin bataata
achcha bataata hoon
har dard ke mare ko ek din
to padti hai zaroorat to meri
padti hai zaroorat to meri
toote huye dil ko jod diya
khoob kiya
arrey khoob kiya
duniya ne to mujhko chhod diya
khoob kiya
arrey ae khoob kiya

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 68# Singer – Kishore Kumar
———————————————–——————–

My personal opinion is that wherever and whatever field we are we should have a purpose and we should contribute to enrich that surroundings we are, for however long or short a period we are there. It was not that I was so ‘intelligent’ since my younger days. The thinking is a result of my experience or you can say ‘mistakes’ 😊 which have taught me a lot and yes ‘age should not be the price one should pay for being experience’ (as Wise people say). But some people like me took years to realize the ‘world around’ and learn only from mistakes 😊

Ok, whatever it is!! Here on this blog ever since I have been associated with, I am trying to do so. And simultaneously I continue to keep adding something. As and when I notice it, I also try to bring to the notice of our ‘editors’ the small or big corrections and or missing links which we need to correct and or re-install. Well, it is a different matter, that since they are much busier and already loaded with lot of requests and mails, sometimes my requests just keep lying in the mail boxes (may be for years or more 😊).

 Few days back when I was browsing through my pending list I noticed the song under discussion today was pending since long. And when I just glance through some statistics of interest, I find that sharing this song with a post is going to serve some purpose.

When I was drafting this post the number of Kishore Kumar solo songs posted on the blog was at 498, so I thought I should push one ahead so that the milestone of 500 is achieved. But, in the meantime, I could not send the post and this milestone was already achieved on the blog. Later I thought maybe I send it for the auspicious ‘501’, but that also was not achieved. However, the ‘bigger reason’ to share this post was still there and posting of this song here today will push this movie- of which the today’s song is from – one step ahead in the ‘Yippeeee land’ as after this song only one song from this movie ‘Kaaran’ will be remaining to be posted on the blog.

‘Kaaran’ is a movie of 1980. Yes, as per HFGK and movie’s Censor Certificate, its movie of 1980 passed by Censor Board on 18.11.1980, maybe it was released in theatres in 1981 which is all possible. (So, this needs to be corrected on the blog and this is yet another purpose of this post).

‘Kaaran’ is directed by BR Ishara for Bhagyalakshami Chitra Mandir Combine, Bombay. It was produced by Gopi Rohra. It had Raj Kiran, Shoma Anand, Master Bittu, Arun Irani, Seema Deo, Ramesh Deo, Ashok Khanna, Sanu Sanyal, Shankar, Pardesi, PM Maniyar, RS Chopda, Shirvastava, Sunder Taneja, Kamal Thakur, Mona Sayeed, Ashish Oza, Soman Randhava, Amit Kumar, Shyam Solanki, Amarchand, and Naveen Nischol in a ‘special appearance’. Satyen Kappu, Dheeraj Kumar, Manhar Desai and Gulshan Arora make a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie. The story is written by Jyoti Swaroop and BR Ishara (spelt as B AAR Ishara in the movie titles 😊). Editing for this movie was done by LD Bhatia.

The movie has three songs – all solo songs sung by male singers viz. Kishore Kumar, Yesudas and Mohd Rafi. Lyrics for all the three songs are penned by Indeewar and music is composed by Usha Khanna. One song sung by Yesudas from this movie has been posted to cover a ‘major milestone’ on the blog i.e. 1000th lyrics Contribution of Prakashchandra ji.

Today we present the second song of this movie, which in the movie is the first song. I came across this song almost more than five years back when I was a ‘newcomer’ on the blog 😊. I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about its story and its performance at the box-office. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

With a ‘purpose’ and ‘reason’ for this presentation and continuing with the journey of Kishore Kumar’s songs from the ‘decade of seventies’ let us now enjoy this poignant song. . . 

kaaran naa jaane koi…

Song – Kaaran Na Jaane Koi (Kaaran) (1980) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Usha Khanna

Lyrics

kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh na royi
kaaran na jaane koi
toofaan dubotaa
to shikwaa na hotaa

khewaiyya ne naiyaa duboyee ee ee
kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh na royi
kaaran na jaane koi

apna kaha na mujhko kisi ne
kya main itna paraaya hoon
chalte hain sab mujhse bachke
kya main gunaahon ka saaya hoon
phir na jaagi kismat aisi
maut ki neendiya soyi ee ee
kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh naa royi
kaaran na jaane koi

patthar ko bhi chot lagey to
aag ugalney lagta hai
jag ko jalaakar dam leta hai
jab dil jalne lagta hai
phool bana hai bahaar ka dushman
baagh bachega na koi ee ee
kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh na royi
kaaran na jaane koi

aa ha ha ha aa ha
ho ho ho o ho ho o

pyaar jinhen milta hain kisi ka
wo sansaar sajaate hain
thukraaye jaate hain jo
duniyaa mein tabaahee laatein hain
suraj ne bhi andheron mein pal kar
roshni kaise khoi ee ee
kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh na royi ee
kaaran na jaane koi

ped binaa phal
phool binaa phulwaari adhoori hoti hai
jaagti hai jab mamta mann mein
naari poori hoti hai
mom ke jaisa patthar pighla
dil royaa aankh bhi royi ee ee
kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh bhi royi
kaaran na jaane koi
kaaran na jaane koi

कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख ना रोई
कारण न जाने कोई
तूफ़ान डूबोता तो शिकवा न होता
खेवैय्या ने नैय्या डूबोयी ई ई
कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख ना रोई
कारण न जाने कोई

अपना कहा ना मुझको किसीने
क्या मैं इतना पराया हूँ
चलते हैं सब मुझसे बचके
क्या मैं गुनाहों का साया हूँ
फिर ना जागी किस्मत ऐसी
मौत कि नींदिया सोयी ई ई
कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख ना रोई
कारण न जाने कोई

पत्थर को भी चोट लगे तो
आग उगलने लगता हैं
जग को जलाकर दम लेता हैं
जब दिल जलने लगता हैं
फूल बना है बहार का दुश्मन
बाग़ बचेगा ना कोई ई ई
कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख ना रोई
कारण न जाने कोई

आ हा हा हा आ हा
हो हो हो ओ हो हो ओ

प्यार जिन्हें मिलता हैं किसी का
वो संसार सजाते हैं
ठुकराए जाते हैं जो
दुनिया में तबाही लातें हैं
सूरज ने भी अंधेरों में पल कर
रौशनी कैसे खोयी ई ई
कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख ना रोई
कारण न जाने कोई

पेड़ बिना फल
फूल बिना फुलवारी अधूरी होती हैं
जागती हैं जब ममता मन में
नारी पूरी होती हैं
मोम के जैसा पत्थर पिघला
दिल रोया आँख भी रोयी ई ई
कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख भी रोई
कारण न जाने कोई
कारण न जाने कोई
