Erich Segal’s immortal novel “Love Story” has inspired quite a few movies. The first such movie was a Hollywood movie of the same name that was released in 1970, a few months after this novel was released on 14 february 1970.

Hindi movies have also joined the bandwagon. “Ankhiyon ke Jharokhon se” (1978) was based on “Love Story”. A Rajshree Productions release, this movie was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Hiren Nag. Vrajendra Gaur as the writer had adapted this story, Indianising the movie as much as he could.

Putting songs is one of the obvious ways of Indianising a foreign story. And it must be said that the songs of this movie served to create just the right ambiance for the story to move.

Like the novel, the end is revealed in the very beginning of the movie. If “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se” (1978) still did well at the bo office then one of the major reasons for that were its songs that were superbly created and integrated with the story.

The fact that this story was adapted from “Love Story” the novel was not known to me when I bunked my afternoon practical class to watch this movie in matinee show one evening in 1978. I did not like the movie much because of its tragic end (revealed right at the beginning) and also because of the story line that I felt were quite contrived and artificial. The reason for that was of course the foreign nature of the source material, as one can see.

If people still lapped up the movie, it was because of its music. What superbly created songs by Ravindra Jain ! He used Hemlata as his femmale playback singer and I found her voice quite high quality honey like in these songs. Surprisingly, no other music director would use her voice and her career faded just as Ravindra Jain’s did.

Coming to “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se”(1978), this movie had six songs in it. Three of them have been discussed in the past. Here is the fourth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is a collection of “dohas” that we used to study in our Hindi textbooks those days. These “dohas” of poets like Rahim, Kabeer, Tulsidas etc contain invaluable lessons of life, delivered tersely and succinctly.

I am quite surprised that these “dohas” did not find places in too many movie songs. This song was one of the very few such songs.

Students of later generations do not get exposed to such poems I feel. As a result many of the words in these poems have ended up becoming alien to them. Lyrics of this song is available online and each one copies from each other, but the lyrics are noted down by later generation music enthusiasts who are not familiar with these poms as as a result the lyrics of this song available online contain serious inaccuracies.

The song is sung by Hemalata and Jaspal Singh. The song is picturised on Ranjeeta and Sachin who are shown contesting in a “poetry contest” in their college.

Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

Here is this nice collection of Hindi “Dohas” in this song.

I have not been able to get one word right (may be more). I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable in the lyrics.


Song-Bade badaai na karen bade na bolen bol (Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se)(1978) Hemlata, Jaspal Singh, Ravindra Jain Ravindra Jain

bade badaayi na karen
bade na bolen bol
bade badaayi na karen
bade na bolen bol
rahiman heera kab kahe
laakh taka mero mol
rahima
laakh taka mero mol

jo baden ko laghu kahen
nahin rahim ghati jaayen
jo baden ko laghu kahen
nahin rahim ghati jaayen
girdhar murlidhar kahe
kachhu dukh maanat naahin
rahima
kachhu dukh maanat naahin

gyaani se kahiye kaha
kahat kabir lajaaye
gyaani se kahiye kaha
kahat kabir lajaaye
andhe aage naachte
kala akaarath jaaye
kabira
kala akaarath jaaye

aisi baani boliye
mann ka aapa khoye
aisi baani boliye
mann ka aapa khoye
auran ko sheetal kare
aaphu sheetal hoye
kabira
aap hu sheetal hoye

aawat hi harse nahin
nainan nahin saneh
aawat hi harse nahin
nainan nahin saneh
tulsi kahaa na jaayiye
chaahe kanchan barse meh
re tulsi
kanchan barse meh

bura jo dekhan main chala
bura na milya koye
bura jo dekhan main chala
bura na milya koye
jo dil khoja aapna
mujhse bura na koye
kabeera
mujhse bura na koye

bigdi baat bane nahin
laakh karo kin koy
bigdi baat bane nahin
laakh karo kin koy
rahiman bigde doodh ko
mathe na maakhan hoy
rahima
mathe na maakhan hoy

rahiman dhaaga prem ka
mat todo chatkaay
rahiman dhaaga prem ka
mat todo chatkaay
toote se phir na jude
jude gaanthh pad jaaye
rahima
jude gaanthh pad jaaye

‘झ’
“झुका झुका के नज़र यूं उठाई जाती है”

jab bhi ye dil udaas hota hai
jaane kaun aas paas hota hai

These lines tickle the strands of the mind often, when in the moods of a tranquil nothingness – sometimes in the moments just as the self is drifting into sleep, or sometimes, on a journey in a relaxed coziness with nothing particular to do, or sometimes on lonely walks in the evenings. And the mind wonders, trying to put a face to a distant thought – “jaane kaun aas paas . . . hai”. That face is almost never distinct. Whose presence it is that I feel – the mind is yet to discern, and ascribe substance to the tenuous wisps that almost form the image, but then always fails to bring into a distinct focus. And the mind wanders, continues to seek – an unfinished image, trying to capture an elusive face, and a name that keeps bumping tantalizingly close to the edges of memory, yet always remains just a breath away from my grasp.

‘क’
“कल मेरी तरह मुझको सलाम आप करेंगे”

We now move to the consonants, having completed the list of basic vowels. So far, the only alphabet missing is the letter ‘ ई’.

This here is a wonderful nazm from the 1973 film ‘Mere Ghareeb Nnawaaz’. A very soft expression of first love, which has been sung so softly by Rafi Sb.  I remember this nazm was quite popular in its time and was frequently heard on the radio waves.
