Today’s song is from an ‘unreleased movie’ from the 1940s.

I had come across songs of this movie in 2014 and I had shared a few songs from this movie to our editors then. At that time the year of this movie was mentioned as ‘1950’ on some links and ‘1940’ on others so it was not clear.

However, when I got the copy of HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950) I found the following details about this movie mentioned therein.

HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950) lists this movie as ‘Un-released’ movie of ‘1941-1950’.

On page number 607 – Appendix-1 Movie number 1214 this movie is mentioned as presented by ‘Rahnuma Pictures’.
However, its star cast and director is not mentioned. Music director is mentioned as Shankar Lal.
Lyricist names are mentioned as Shyam Hindi and Kamran Momin.

The list mentions total eight songs in this movie. So far, two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

S. No Song Title Lyricist Singer Posted On
01 Ga re manwaa gaa Shyam Hindi

That leaves us with four movies that are eligible for blog Ten Year Challenge today (31 December 2022).

Only audio of the song is available. It is clear that this “expression of love” song was picturised on the le pair viz Surendra and Munawwar Sultana. I request our knowlegeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.

The Nightingale of Punjab – the sobriquet given to her by the film industry and the media. Today, she would have completed 93 years.

Remembering the zestful singer Surinder Kaur on her birth anniversary today.

Born in Lahore in 1929, her family moved to Ghaziabad near Delhi when the Partition happened. It was the same year that she also got married. She was already a singing star in undivided Punjab, and had made her debut as  singer on the Lahore radion station in 1943. Between 1943 and 1947, she and her elder sister Prakash Kaur recorded a number of Punjabi folk song with HMV. These songs have created a genre of their own, and continue to be the gold standard in Punjabi folk music even today, more than seventy five years after being originally recorded.

Her husband, Prakash Singh Sodhi, a professor of Punjabi Literature at Delhi University was very supportive of her career as a singer, and encouraged her to go to Bombay (now Mumbai) and make a mark for herself in the Hindi film industry. She came to Bombay in 1948, and immediately got a break, with music director Ghulam Haider giving her a chance to sing three songs in the film ‘Shaheed’. During the next four years, till 1952, she recorded more than fifty four songs in Hindi films. And then took a decision to return to Delhi. The reason that was cited was a disagreement with the climate of Bombay.

She was conferred the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for Punjabi Folk Music in 1984, by the Sangeet Natak Academi, the Millennium Punjabi Singer award, and Padma Shri award in January 2006 for her contribution in Arts. The Guru Nanak Dev University conferred on her a doctorate degree in the year 2002.

Later in the year 2006, her health took a turn for the worse, and she went to United States for treatment, and to be with her daughters who are settled there. Her condition worsened and she passed away in a New Jersey hospital on 14th June, 2006. She was 77 years old.

Each of the songs that she has sung in Hindi films is a gem. The tone and character of her voice is so distinct, and her diction carries a touch of north India, and Punjab in particular. I present today this wonderful song from the 1948 film ‘Naao’. The lyrics are from the pen of DN Madhok and the music is from the mind of Gyan Dutt.

A song that tells of the state of the heart of the lady, whose beau is leaving for distant lands. The words and their rendition is simply too good –

तुम तो चले हो लगी तोड़ के
हम कित जाएँ

you are departing, breaking this alliance of hearts
alas, where can I go

 

Listen to this lovely melody, and the wonderful rendition – the voice of Surinder Kaur.

[Note: The lyrics of this song have been sent by dear Prakashchandra ji.]

Song – Tum Ho Na Ho Hamaare, Hum Ho Gaye Tumhaare (Naao) (1948) Singer – Surinder Kaur, Lyrics – DN Madhok, MD – Gyan Dutt

Today’s song is from the film Hip Hip Hurray-1948.

How many of us really know what ” Hip Hip Hurray ” means in reality ? I am sure all of us have used this slogan several times during our school and college days, whenever we were celebrating a victory of our team over the rivals or someone had earned a coveted Reward or an Honour from the authorities. I have used it many times myself, as a victory slogan etc. That was not an age when we cared for the dictionary meaning of popular words or phrases like this one. The colloquial meaning was sufficient for us.

Out of curiosity, I checked a few English dictionaries like the Oxford and the Concise Cambridge dictionary. I found that ” HHH ‘ is a cheer slogan called out to express congratulations towards someone or something. It also denoted appreciation and approval of a victory. ” So much for the meaning of this phrase !

I could not find the story of this film, despite my efforts. There was another film made in 1984 with the same title. That film was based on an Inter-Collegiate Football competition, with a background of a love story of Raj Kiran and Dipti Naval. Then there was also a TV serial, with the same title. It ran from 21-8-1998 to 25-5-2001, with 80 episodes, followed by its second season with 45 episodes , after 15 years.

Anyway, the film Hip Hip Hurray-1948 was produced by Navin Yagnik and Hari Kashmiri, for the banner ‘ Kashmir Films’. The film was directed by Arvind Sen. He had earlier acted in 2 films-Doctor-1940 and Devdasi-1945. Hip Hip Hurray -1948 was his Debut film as a director and he went on to direct another 10 films till Nasihat (1986). His 2 films Muqaddar-(1950) and Kafila-(1952) became successful. They had excellent music also.

The film’s Music Director was Pt. Hanuman Prasad. The name Hanuman Prasad paints a picture of a Pehelwan playing kushti in an akhaada. Guru Hanuman and his akhaada in North India were quite famous. In the late 50s and 60s,there were many Wrestling Championships played in India. Many Pehelwans from other countries also came here to participate. Through these bouts the name of Dara Singh became very famous and later he appeared in Hindi films. The name Hanuman rekindles memories of that era.

However, one would be reasonably surprised if I tell that Pt. Hanuman Prasad ( Sharma/Triloki) was a well known Hindi Film Music Director in the 40s and 50s. Hanuman Prasad was a complete musical package, in the sense that he composed, wrote lyrics ( Gaali, Jasoos, Saudagar and Rasilee) and sung a song also in film( Rasili)-as Sharma. He even directed the film Rasilee-46. Geeta Dutt fans will remember him as the one who discovered her and gave her the first break in Playback singing in Hindi films in 1946.

There were 2 lyricists for 9 songs (actually 11 songs). The 9th song had 3 parts on 2 different records. It was sung by different singers). However, HFGK failed to credit every song with its lyricist’s name. The cast of the film was Balwant Singh, Navin Yagnik, Nirupa Roy, Mangala, Prabhu Dayal, Kumkum, Gulab etc. and a battery of comedians like Dikshit, Bhudo Advani, Radha Kishen and Gope.

Balwant Singh was an actor and a singer. He had no song in this film and from the film ‘Apni chhaya’-1950, with Mohd. Rafi giving him the playback, his singing came to a close.

BALWANT SINGH was born in Pandoga village of Hoshiarpur on 9-12-1918 in a Jahagirdar’s family. He was quite rich. After a training from Pt. Bhishmadev in classical music, he came to Bombay and joined Bombay Talkies at the age of 18 years. He first gave Playback in Jeevan Prabhat-37.In Nirmala-38 he acted and also sang a song. Then came Durga-39 where also he acted and sang. V. Shantaram cast him in Padosi-41 and his songs in this film were hits.

He was Hero in Darpan (1941),Swapna (1942),Malan (1943),Naukar (1943),Paraya Dhan (1943), Ashirwaad (1943), Collegian (1944), Dr.Kumar (1944), Bhanwar (1947,Hip hip Hurray (1948) and Apni Chhaya-(1950) etc. As a hero he sang less songs. His songs with Shanta Hublikar (Malan) and Parul Ghosh and Khan Mastana (Bhanwar) were very popular. He also acted in Nirmala, Vachan and Kangan.

In all, he acted in 18 films, sang 20 songs in 10 films and also wrote 6 songs in the film Sumitra-1949.

He married a girl from the royal family of Palanpur, Gujarat. After leaving films, he worked in All India Radio for 4 years. Then he settled in Ahmedabad, directing Dramas and Teaching music. Finally, he shifted to Ludhiana where, after a long illness, he died on 4-12-1985.

When Balwant Singh worked for A.I.R., it was claimed that he was responsible for the making of the famous morning Signature Tune of the A.I.R., and despite all presentations to several authorities, he was not given the credit for this. His son also claimed this in his interview given to our friend Shishir Krishna Sharma, for his Blog ” Beete hue din”. When I read his interview on the Blog and the You Tube, I wrote to Sharma ji, pointing out to him that this tune was made by the German refugee in India- Walter Kaufmann and NOT Balwant Singh. My E Mail dated 21-4-2021, to him is given here….

Dear Sharma ji,

I visited YouTube and heard your presentation.
I have also read what is written in your post about Balwant Singh on your Blog.
I would like to bring to your notice that it seems this Signature Tune of A.I.R. was NOT made by Balwant Singh,
but by one Walter Kaufmann, when he worked for All India Radio from 1934 to 1946.
There is a book ” THE MUSIC THAT STILL RINGS AT DAWN, EVERY DAWN”
Walter Kauffmann in India, 1934 – 1946
Author – Amrit Gangar
Published by Goethe Institut, Max Mueller Bhavan, Mumbai. 2013

Chapter 3 in this book is THE ALL INDIA RADIO, on page 36.

In this chapter it has been given in detail, with proofs in terms of several letters etc about the signature tune made by him for A.I.R.
There is an interview of the son of Dinkar Amembel, station Director, Bombay AIR, who says that Dinkar had played the Tanpura and
Mehli Mehta played the Violin.

I have this book, gifted to me by the author.

When you come back to Mumbai, you can visit me and see the book entries yourself.
I am fully convinced that the tune was done by Walter Kaufmann only.
It is possible that that is the reason why Balwant Singh’s claim was not entertained ever !

However, for whatever reasons, the said point was neither removed from his Blog nor the YouTube presentation.

Today’s song is sung by 4 singers namely, Geeta Roy, Zohrabai Amabalawali, G.M. Durani and Shamshad Begum. It is a good song. Enjoy….

Today’s song is from yet another Historical movie-Padmini-1948. Like the last post, even this film story is connected with Rajasthan, by coincidence.

The film was made by the Punjab Film Corporation, Bombay – owned by the Producer, Director and Lyricist of this film – Wali Sahab. Music Director was Ghulam Haider and the cast consisted of Mumtaz Shanti (wife of the director Wali Sahab), Ashok kumar, Mumtaz Ali, Maya Devi, Neelam, Sultana, A.Shah and others.

Film Padmini-48 was the second Historical movie in which Ashok Kumar had ‘acted’. The first one was ” Humayun”-1945. In that film, according to Isaq Mujawar, author of several books on old films and artistes,” Ashok kumar was ridiculed by the theatre audience for his feminine acting and running with the war gear on the screen. he looked so funny in that attire that whole audience was laughing loudly at him” (book-Screenplay). Obviously, Ashok Kumar, who had an image of a simple romantic Hero in the Bombay Talkies films with Devika Rani and later with Leela Chitnis, was a misfit in the Historical role. Looks like he did not realise this or did not care for it and accepted the second such film again.

Same case was with Ashok Kumar’s Mythological films. The first mythological film that he acted in was ‘ Savitri”-1937 with Devika Rani as Savitri. Ashok Kumar was still a new actor and this was his only 4th film. He had yet to get branded as a Romantic hero, but the Mythological role of Satyawan did not suit him at all. When one sees some photos of this film, one will be confused as to who is Satyawan and who is Savitri. Even in the photos he looked so odd and awkward. In Spite of this, he acted in another Mythological film ” Uttara Abhimanyu “-1946, with Shanta Apte. Here, he was Abhimanyu and did not suit the role at all due to his age, which was 35 years. Shanta Apte as Uttara was also over 30 years old. Thankfully, good sense prevailed and Ashok Kumar did not act in such films in the Hero’s role thereafter !

In the film Padmini-1948, actress Sultana had done a role. Her sisters Zubeida and Shehzadi had quit films in late 30’s after their marriage, but Sultana continued in films. Sultana, also known as Sultana Razaaq, was one of the earliest film actresses from India and acted both in silent movies and later in talkie movies. She was daughter of India’s first female film director, Fatima Begum. Zubeida (leading actress of India’s first talkie film Alam Ara -1931) was the younger sister of Sultana. The youngest sister was Shehzadi-also an actress. Actress Mehtab (Sohrab Modi’s wife), whose real name was Najma, was the step sister of these girls. Najma was the daughter of Marium, one of the wives of Nawab of Sachin.

Sultana was among the few girls who entered films at a time when it was not considered an appropriate profession for girls from respectable families, let alone Royalty. Born in the Surat city of Gujarat in western India, Sultana was a stunningly beautiful Muslim princess, the daughter of Nawab Siddi Ibrahim Muhammad Yakut Khan III of Sachin State and Fatima Begum. She had two sisters, Zubeida and Shehzadi, both actresses. However, there is no record of a marriage or a contract having taken place between the Nawab and Fatima Bai or of the Nawab having recognised any of her children as his own, a prerequisite for legal paternity in Muslim family law. Actually, the Nawab had 3 wedded wives and Fatima was an ‘ outside’ arrangement.

Sultana was a popular actress in the silent movie era, usually cast in romantic roles. She started her career as an actress in Veer Abhimanyu (1922) film in 1920s and later performed in several silent films. Later, she also acted in talkie movies. Sultana did sexy roles in films and earned a name as “Sultry Sultana”. She acted in 20 Silent films. She continued acting after the Talkie films started and worked in 19 Talkie films. Her last film was ‘ Girdhar Gopal ki Meera’-1949.. She came into limelight when she filed a case against Yassir Hussain Lalji, son of the chief of Bombay Municipality, in 1931, claiming to be his wife and demanding a sum of Rs. 5 lakhs in those days !

When India was partitioned in 1947, she migrated to Pakistan with her husband, a wealthy man named Seth Razaaq. Her daughter, Jamila Razaaq, was also encouraged by her to act in Pakistani films and she produced a film in Pakistan, named Hum Ek hain (1961), written by famous scriptwriter, Fayyaz Hashmi. The film was partly shot in colour, which was rare those days, but it failed miserably and Sultana stopped producing any films afterwards.

Sultana’s daughter, Jamila Razaaq, married the well known Pakistani cricketer Waqar Hasan, who is the brother of filmmaker Iqbal Shehzad. He runs a business under the name National Foods at Karachi. (Author’s note- This is based on information collated from the book ‘Asli Nakli Chehere’ by Vithal Pandya, Blog of P.Kamalakar, 1946 Film Directory, pak.mag site and my notes, with thanks to all)

Another unknown name in the cast is A.Shah. Here is some information on him. An actor who was quite a popular comedian those days was A Shah aka Aziz Shah. He was born in 1910, at Sialkot. He did not have much schooling, except primary education at Lyallpur and at Islamia High School, Lahore. Due to his rich and sweet voice, he used to recite Holy Quran, on farmaish. He wrote poetry also.

He joined Saroj Movietone in 1930, under Mohan Bhavnani as an artiste at Rs.40 p.m. He acted in ‘Shakuntala’-31 and ‘Gul Bakavli’-32. He had to take a 2 year break, due to an illness. Back in Bombay, he worked in the film ‘Fidai Tohid’-34 as a hero. He gave music to the film ‘Gunehgar’-36. He wrote dialogues for ‘Mother India’-38 and ‘Daughters of India’-39. His first comic role was in Ranjit’s ‘Mirza Sahiban’-35. He became famous with his role in Punjabi film ‘Kurmai’-41.

His best role came in ‘Sharada’-42, as Munshi Udharchand Shikarpuri. This was repeated by him in the film ‘Keemat’-46. Some of his 11 films were, ‘Dhandora’-41, ‘Armaan’-42, ‘Sukh Dukh’-42, ‘Kanoon’-43, ‘Sanjog’-43, ‘Geet’-44 and ‘Ek Din Ka Sultan’-45, and Padmini-48.After 1948, he stopped acting and wrote lyrics in films like ‘Raat Ki Rani’-49, ‘Namoona’-49 and ‘Ek Teri Nishani’-49. After this he possibly migrated to Pakistan and we have no further information about him anymore. Baburao Patel of Film India magazine was his fan.( Adapted from Film Directory-46 and pak.mag with thanks.)

Today’s song is from the early career of Geeta Roy when she was new, not very well known and with a fresh melodious voice. The song is very sweet. Music is by Ghulam Haider, who was in a hurry to migrate to Pakistan. He was one of the very few popular and successful MDs in undivided India, who went to Pakistan and did not do that well there. Not only that, he suffered from Cancer and died within 2 years of going to Pakistan. This is in contrast to many other MDs, who were ordinary and not so popular in India, became highly successful, popular and famous in Pakistan Some such examples are Nissar Bazmi, Tufail Faruqi, G.A.Chishti (Babaji) etc etc.

The producer, Director and lyricist of this film was Wali Saheb who also migrated to Pakistan soon after, along with his wife Mumtaz Shanti. Just for information, Mumtaz Shanti’s mother was a Hindu named Shanti and father was a Muslim-Mumtaz Shah. That’s how she called herself Mumtaz Shanti.

I am not giving the story of this film, because the story of beautiful queen Padmini and her Jauhar, along with hundreds of other women, to save their honour from the army of Allauddin khilji is very well known.

Today’s song is from the film Chanda ki Chandani-1948.

The film was directed by Dwaraka Khosla, the lyricist was D.N.Madhok and the music Director was Gyan Dutt.

When I was looking at the cast of this film, my eyes were stuck on one name and a smile came to my face.

From the day films started being made in India, in the first stage, no one was ready to work in films. In the second stage, no one from a respectable family was coming forward to work in films. In the third stage, very few educated people joined the films. However, as the film industry got well established, the picture changed and highly educated people from respectable families joined Cinema world. Not only that, working in films became a matter of prestige. It brought fame and money both ! The film industry attracted all talented people from various places.

Working in films also became an attraction for many producers, directors, lyricists, singers, music directors,cinematographers, choreographers etc. In fact, people who had no direct involvement in the actual role playing too became attracted to be seen on the silver screen. Thus, we find many examples of such ‘ unconnected ‘ film personalities to appear on the silver screen at least once.

Take the case of Music Director S.N.Tripathi, for example. When he joined the film industry through Bombay talkies, for fun, he first did a small role in the film Jeevan Naiya-1936, which was also the first film of Ashok Kumar as a Hero. But after that film, after 10 years, he started acting in films and finally he ended up acting in 83 films in his career, while giving music to 107 films and even directing 10 films ! This is the charisma of films !!. Another example I remember offhand is that of music director Jaikishen ( of Shankar- Jaikishen fame), who appeared as a singer in the film Begunah-1957.

Among lyricists, I remember Dewan Sharar, doing a small role in the film Karma-1933, who ended up appearing in 7 more films in the next 20 years ! Not only this, but even Lata Mangeshkar ( initially as a need), Asha Bhosle, R D Burman etc have appeared on the silver screen. Mukesh and Talat Mehmood had done Hero’s roles too. There could be many such examples and our readers can quote them.

In my younger days ( which was too long ago ! ), I remember Alfred Hitchcock, director of Murder mystery films, had the habit of appearing at least once in evry film that he made, either as a part of a crowd or in a negligible cameo role. During that period, it became a craze all over the world to spot him in his films- which was a difficult task and people saw films many times just to locate him.

All this came to my mind, when I saw the name of Neelkanth Tiwari in the cast of the film Chanda ki Chandani-1948. Tiwari was a well known author and a lyricist in Hindi films. This winner of Sahitya Academy Award, had a penchant for appearing on Silver screen. He appeared in at least 2 films – Apna paraya-1942 and Chanda ki Chandani-1948. He is also said to have appeared along with Dev Anand (with whom he was quite close) in one of his films- name of which I do not know. Not only this he also sang a song in his first film Nirdosh-1941 !

Other members of the cast of this film were Jairaj, Rehana, E.Bilimoria, Moni Chatterjee, Kesari, Veera, Ameer bano etc. The case of E. Bilimoria is strange. He became an actor by accident (reminds me of Motilal and Ranjan too). In the early era of the Talkie films the Bilimoria brothers were very famous. First it was D (Dinshaw) and then came E (Eddie) Bilimoria. Eddie was born at Bilimora,in Gujarat, in 1900. At the age of just 13 years he ran away from house to Kirkee (near Poona), to his uncle, to become a Fireman in Railways. Here, he became a Door keeper in a Cinema house and also learnt operating the film projector. Due to ill health, he was brought to Bombay.

One day he went to Imperial Studio to meet his brother Dinshaw, who worked in films. Mistaking him to be Dinshaw, make-up was done to him and he played a role in the film ‘Punjab Mail’. Then onwards he started working regularly in films. As a Hero his first silent film was ‘Raj Ramani’. He worked as Hero in 7 Imperial films and 10 films of Ranjit Studio. His Heroines were Putli, Shanta, Sultana. Madhuri, Padma, Panna and others. When Talkie films started he was Hero in 32 films made by Ranjit, opposite Gauhar, Shanta, Kamla, Mehtab, Madhuri and Sitara etc. He worked in 15 films opposite Madhuri only. Fencing, shooting and horse riding were his specialties as a stunt Hero. He was the First in India to wear Cowboy dress in stunt films.

Char chakram-32, Miss 1933-33, and Nadira-34 were his Hit films. In the film ‘ Sipahi ki sajni’-36, he jumped into Sea from a flying plane, without duplicate. Daredevil stunts were his hallmark. There were hundreds of stitches on his body. After 1939 he stopped getting Hero roles, so he did other character roles. After 1953, he was reduced to only an Extra. He did acting till 1973 and then took up a job in a Fridge and AC shop. He stayed in a flat in Kemps corner in Bombay. His last days were not very happy. E.Bilimoria died on 18-2-1981 at Bombay.

He acted in 73 Talkie films, directed 1 film ( sone ki chidiya-48) and also sang 4 songs in 4 films. His first film was Radha Rani-32 and last was Honeymoon-73.
( adapted from ‘Inhe na Bhulana’ (in Gujarati) by Harish Raghuwanshi, with thanks.)

Another name of interest was that of Veera. This name too may not be known to many. Veera was from a Parsi family.Her full name was Veera Ankaleshwaria. Obviously, her family came from Ankaleshwar,a small industrial town(now), in Gujarat. She started her career in films as a Heroine opposite Nasir khan in the film Mazdoor-1945. Then came Shikari-46 and later Eight days-46, both had Ashok Kumar as the Hero. Both the films were from Filmistan. Her last film as Heroine was Tohfa, opposite Rehman and Leela opposite Agha , both films from 1947. Then she stopped getting Heroine roles and shifted to side roles. In all she did 22 films.

Her other films were, Veena, Ziddi, Chanda ki Chandani- all 48, Sanwaria-49, Hamara Ghar and hamari beti- 1950, Hamari shaan, Ramjanma and Sagar-1951, Aasmaan, izzat, Moti mahal, Sanskar and Shin shinaki boobla boo-all1952, Dana Pani-53, Boot polish and Sheeshe ki deewar both 1954.

She married Mohsin Abdulla, who had worked in Bombay Talkies as a writer. He was the younger brother of actress Renuka Devi ( Begum Mirza) and ex husband of actress Neena (Shaheeda). After the marriage, both migrated to Pakistan in 1955. No news after that.

Today’s song is a good one, sung by Sulochana Chavan and B. Hussain. I do not know who this B. Hussain was. HFGK mentions the singer of this song as Geeta Roy, but the names on the actual gramophone record are different. This song and the record photo was uploaded by Jaffer Bhai. Thanks to him for this rare song. Let us enjoy this duet – which is the 7th song of this film to feature on this Blog.

rote huye ko aur rulaataa hai ae zamaanaa
aansoo na bahaanaa..aa aa
aansoo na bahaanaa
rote huye ko aur rulaataa hai ae zamaanaa
aansoo na bahaanaa aa aa
aansoo na bahaanaa

ye aansoo hain mitaati huyi
khushiyon ki nishaani..eee
ye aansoo hain mithaati huyi
khushiyon ki nishaani..eee
seeney mein chhupaa ley ye ae
motiyon ka khazaanaa..aa aa
yoon hi na lutaanaa
rote huye ko aur rulaataa hai ae zamaanaa
aansoo na bahaanaa aa aa
aansoo na bahaanaa

mat keh ke tooney
aaj tak dekhi nahin khazaa
mat keh ke tooney
aaj tak dekhi nahin khazaa
mil jaayegaa zamaaney ko
hansney kaa bahaanaa..aa..aa
ye raaz chhupaanaa
rote huye ko aur rulaataa hai ae zamaanaa
aansoo na bahaanaa..aa aa
aansoo na bahaanaa

kya jaaney kab sulag padey
bujhtey..ae huye armaan..aan..aan
kya jaaney kab sulag padey/padein
bujhtey..ae huye armaan..aan
beetey dinon ki yaad na
is dil ko jalaa naa/jalaanaa
achcha hai bhulaanaa
rote huye ko aur rulaataa hai ae zamaanaa
aansoo na bahaanaa..aa aa
aansoo na bahaanaa
