(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#9 – The magic of Bappi Da & Kishore Kumar)

Today’s song is another Bappi Da-Kishore Kumar song which I like very much since the release of its movie. I had not watched this movie and over the years I only remember this song and one other song of this movie which is ‘naina ye barse, milne ko tarse’ which too I like very much. However I had always thought these songs as the compositions of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. It was only when I noted down the lyrics of this song for presentation that I came to know that it was a composition of Bappi Lahiri and not Laxmikant Pyarelal.

There are some nice songs given by Bappi Lahiri-Kishore Kumar combination in the eighties till 1987 when Kishore Kumar passed away. I seem to have lost track of many such songs and it is only nowadays that I am getting reaquainted with them on ‘radio programmes’.

Today’s wonderful romantic Kishore Kumar song is one such song. This is from the ‘1985’ movie ‘Mohabbat’.

‘Mohabbat’ (1985) was directed by Bapu. It was produced by Inder Kumar-Ashok Thakariya.
It had Anil Kapoor, Vijayata Pandit, Amrish Puri, Shakti Kapoor, Aruna Irani, Amjad Khan, Shammi, Ram Mohan, Sundar, Shubha Khote, Satish Kaushik, Chitti Babu, Asha, Manmauji, Dev Sharma, Sehgal and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.05.1985. Movies with the same title were released in ‘1943’, and ‘1997’ as well.

We have the ‘1943-Mohabbat’ already represented on the blog.

“Mohabbat-1985” has five songs in it which all were written by Indeevar. Music for this film was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

S.No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Saanson se nahin …mohabbat se chalti hai duniya Kishore Kumar, chorus
02 Mehbooba paayi hai maine kaisi… Kishore Kumar
03 Zindagi mein pehla pehla toone … Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
04 Apne Laila ka jo pyaar nahin paayegaa Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, chorus
05 Naina ye barse milne ko tarse … Lata Mangeshkar, chorus

Today we are going to listen to a song sung by Kishore Kumar from this movie. This song is lip-synced by Anil Kapoor on screen. Vijayata Pandit is also seen in the picturisation. The song has been shot at some beautiful outdoor locations I think.

With today’s song this movie “Mohabbat-1985” makes its debut on the blog.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

“Lady Killer”(1968) was produced by Dhanpat Rai and directed by B J Patel for People Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Aroon Sarnaik,Shabnam,David, Rozina,JoniBond,Helen, Nilofer, Noor aka Noorjehan,Rani, Bina,Arvind Rathod,Vishwa Mehra, Shri Bhagwan, Shukla, Dawood, Julian, Pandit, Kirit,Dinesh, Satyendra Kapoor aka Satyen Kumar,Hercules etc in it.

“Lady Killer”(1968) had seven songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Lady Killer”(1968). This song is sung by Krishna Kalle. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ajit Merchant.

The song is picturised as a seduction song/ cabarat dance song/ belly dance song on someone whom even our inhouse face recognition expert Prakashchnadra is not sure about. His guess is that she could be either Rozina or Noorjehaan. I request other experts to help identify her. We can also see Aroon Sarnaik in the picturisation.

Lyrics and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Zindagi Aur Toofaan -1975#

‘Ek hasrat thhi ke aanchal ka mujhe pyaar miley…Zindagi aur bataa tera iraadaa kya hai’

I have been listening to this song since my childhood and I have been liking it without any apparent reason. May be the overall composition touched me somewhere and it remain in my memory since then. Later, as I grew up and listened to this song, I liked its lyrics very much and continue to enjoy it whenever it was played around on radio or elsewhere.

Despite all that, I neither searched for the details of the song and its movie nor did I search for other songs from the movie.

The song I mentioned above had been posted on the blog on 30.11.2009. That is almost 12 years, 7 months and 11 days (as on 10.07.2022) or 4606 days after the first song of this movie was discussed on the blog.

I came across this movie-title during my daily browsing of the blog recently, and so here I am taking the chance to go through the details of this movie, its songs and also add the second song of this movie on the blog today.

The song I mentioned on the top of this article is from the movie ‘Zindagi Aur Toofaan’ (1975).

I am not aware how this movie had fared on box-office then. But it seemed to be a forgotten and obscure movie of its time. Hindi movie goers of those days must be well aware of the ‘other’ movies released during this year and one can easily guess that this movie must have been forgotten in the spate of the other popular movies of that year.

‘Zindagi Aur Toofaan’ was directed by Umesh Mathur for Kirtimaan Films, Bombay. It was produced by Lalit Mohan and Charu Mitra.

It had Yogita Bali, Sajid Khan, Helen, Sulbha Deshpande, Kanhaiyyalal, Anwar Hussain, Appi Umrani, Asit Sen, Mukri, Bhagwan, Sikandar Azam, Shefali Choudhary, Master Shahid, Master Majid, Bharat, Bal Kishan, Rajat Kumar, Balwant Singh, Satyender Verma, Manu Dhawan, Kishan, Daya Devi, Leena Das, Pal Sharma, Chandu, Pardesi, Ratan Gaurang, MA Latif, Mumtaz Begum, Geeta Khanna, CM Nagar, and others.

Rehana Sultana and Rakesh Pande made a guest appearances in this movie.

This movie was based on the famous Hindi novel ‘Talaash’ written by Mahavir Adhikari. Mahavir Adhikari also wrote the story and dialogues of this movie. Screenplay of this movie was written by Umesh Mathur who was the director of this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Nand Kumar.

‘Zindagi Aur Toofaan’ was passed by Censor Board on 06.12.1975 (with a ‘restricted viewing (A) certificate).

This movie had four songs in it. Ram Avtar Tyagi wrote the lyrics for two songs, Indeevar and Ram Bharadwaj wrote lyrics for one song each. Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle, Dilraj Kaur, and Amit Kumar (Amit Gangoli as mentioned in the titles of the movie) had given their voices to the songs of this movie.
Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Posted On
01 Ek hasrat thhi ke aanchal ka mujhe pyaar miley Ram Avtar Tyagi Mukesh, Chorus 30.11.2009
02 Main bhi to akela, main bhi to akeli hoon Ram Bharadwaj Amit Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
03 Meri kashti toofaan mein hichkole khaaye jaaye Indeevar Asha Bhonsle
04 Raat madhosh hai khamosh sitaare jaage Ram Avtar Tyagi Asha Bhonsle, Dilraj Kaur

As mentioned above, only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 30.11.2009. Today I present another song from this movie. It is a solo song sung by Asha Bhonsle. It is lip-synced by Yogita Bali. Sajid Khan, the hero of the movie is also seen in the picturisation of this song.

It is a nice song to listen to (and watch too). The song somehow sounds like a familiar song. I have not watched this movie yet. So, I cannot say in what context this song happens in the movie.

Let us listen to today’s song now …

Song-Meri kashti toofaan mein hichkole khaaye jaaye (Zindagi aur Toofaan)(1975) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

meri kashti toofaan mein
hichkole khaaye jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein
hichkole khaaye jaaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein
hichkole khaaye jaaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein ae

dariyaa hai ye ae zindagani
toofaanon jaisi jawaani
dariyaa hai ye ae zindagani
toofaanon jaisi jawaani
dil mera chanchal
dil mera chanchal
armaanon ki maujon se takraaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein
hichkole khaaye jaaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein ae ae

main to hoon aisi dhaara
dhoondhoon baahon on ka kinaara
main to hoon aisi dhaara
dhoondhoon baahon on ka kinaara
dil mein hai udaasi ee
dil mein hai udaasi
umr hai pyaasi
pyaasi hi mujhe dubaaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein
hichkole khaaye jaaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein ae

# Superstar Child Artist – Junior Mehmood # 12
——————————————————–

Welcome all to today’s post which covers a song from the ‘1971’ movie ‘Chhoti Bahu’.

This song, as mentioned above, is picturised on actor Junior Mehmood.

My earlier post in this series, shared on 28.07.2021 ‘final post’ was described as the final song in the series. However, we are now adding this song to the series. One more song wil be covered in future in this series. These additional songs were discovered after my previous post, supposedly the last post of the series, had appeared here.

Today’s song is from “Chhoti Bahu”(1971). Lyrics for today’s song were sent by Prakash ji. He also sent the lyrics for another song of the movie (the last remaining one fro the movie). So, we can expect this movie to finish its run on the ‘blog’ and joining the ‘Yippeee-land’ soon 😊

“Chhoti Bahu-1971” was directed by K. B. Tilak for ‘Delux Productions, Bombay’. M.V. Rajan was the associate director of this movie.

It was produced by Darius Gotla and Seeroo Daryani.

It had Sharmila Tagore, Rajesh Khanna, Nirupa Roy, Shashikala, I.S. Johar, Master Sooraj, Junior Mehmood, Tarun Bose, Shivraj, Jairaj, Satyan Kumar, Radhika Rani, Irshad Panjtan, Chandrima Bhaduri, Master Ratan, Babalal, Rashid (Jackpot), Rangnath Yadav, C.N. Reddi, Chamki, V. Jhulan Babu, Madhumati, Jayshree T., and others.

Screenplay and dialogues of this movie was written by Vishwamitra Adil.

Editing of this movie was done by Venkateshwar Rao.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.05.1971.

‘Chhoti Bahu-1971’ had six songs written by Indeevar (four songs), Kafi Azmi (one song) and Uddhav Kumar (one song).
Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Here is the list of songs this movie had with details of the Singers, Lyricists and date of songs already posted on the blog.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Lyricist Posted On
01 Koyal boli daali se Usha Mangeshkar Indeevar 09.12.2019
02 Dulhaniya bataa de ree Asha Bhonsle, Usha Khanna, chorus Uddhav Kumar 24.11.2011
03 Hey re kanhaiyya, kisko kahega tu maiyya Kishore Kumar Indeevar 27.10.2008
04 Ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi Mohd Rafi Kaifi Afzmi 13.04.2011
05 O motumal, maal akele akele… Hemlata, Chorus Indeevar Being presented today
06 O maa meri maa tujhko dekhna hai Lata Mangeshkar Indeevar

It can be seen from the above table that four songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the penultimate song of ‘Chhoti Bahu-1971’ to appear on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Hemlata.Junior Mehmood lip-syncs the song on screen. Satyen Kappu and Baby Sarika (Master Sooraj) are also visible in the picturisation. The kid, playing the spoilt son of Raja sahab is Master Ratan (I guess).

Junior Mehmood plays ‘Robinhood’ for his ‘children gang’ and tries to advice Raja Saab’s son, his Munshi (Satyen Kappu) and another accomplice not to hoard the stock of eatables (in this case fruits 😊). Junior Mehmood is seen performing in his characteristic style as was his wont in those years.

Let us now enjoy today’s song. Lyrics for this song are written by Indeevar and music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Lyrics for this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 17? # Himalay Se Oonchaa-1975 #
————————————————————

‘Himaalaya Se Oonchaa-1975’ was produced by Baboo Mehra and directed by B.S. Thapa for ‘Prakash Mehra Combine, Bombay’.

It had Sunil Dutt, Mallika Sarabhai, Ranjeet, Rakesh Pande, Shiv Kumar, Raju, Bittoo, Nandita Thakur, Achala Sachdev, Sanjana, Ram Mohan, Goga, Yunus Parvez, Sunder, Randhir, Mac Mohan, Jayraj, Karan Deewan, M. Rajan, Kumud Tripathi, Amrit Pal, Narayan, R. P. Sethi, Jankidas, Bhola, Gulshan Bawra, Yograj, B.M. Vyas, B.B. Bhalla, Kirti Kumar, Rajan Kapoor and others.

This movie had four songs written by Indeevar (three songs) and Anjaan (one song). Music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Kanchan and Shivangi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Following is the list of songs this movie had (as given on the movie-page of this movie in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980)).

SNo Title of the Song Lyricist Singer/s Posted On the blog
01 Ho… ooparwaale ajab teri maaya Indeevar Manna Dey, chorus
02 O saathi re… pyaar jise kehte hai ik baar kiya jaata hai Indeevar Lata Mangeshkar Being discussed today
03 Raahi o raahi …tere sar pe duaaon ke saaye rahe Indeevar Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 01.06.2013
04 Thhithum… arey kahaan gayaa kidhar gayaa Anjaan Kanchan, Baby Shivangi

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie in my childhood with either my brothers & cousins, or my uncles. I had a big nostalgia of the song ‘raahi o raahi’ from this movie, and when I became a member of this blog, I had shared this song then in 2013. The video of this song was not available then. However, in the recent years the songs of this movie and the movie itself has been made available on internet by enthusiastic music and film lovers. I had in my memory a scene from this movie and that is about some snowy mountains and Sunil Dutt carrying his brothers on his shoulders. I have to watch this movie again to clear my doubt (of some ‘miracle’ happening in the movie?), I am leaving that to be discussed in a separate post in the future.

Today 27th February’2022 is the twenty-fifth ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (1 January 1924 – 27 February 1997) of ‘Shyamlal Babu Rai’ who is popularly know to us as ‘lyricist Indeevar’. As a tribute to him I am presenting a song from ‘Himaalay Se Oonchaa-1975’, which will be the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog after 01.06.2013 (when the first song was posted). Though lyrics of the today’s song were also noted around the same time in 2013 it somehow remains to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar and it is lip synced by Mallika Sarabhai. Sunil Dutt is also seen in the picturization of this song.

Music for this movie is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. And as mentioned above lyrics for today’s song is written by Indeevar.

Let us now listen to today’s song …

This article is the 16800th post in the blog.

Blog Day :

4942 Post No. : 16800

Centuries – pivotal events. And always welcome. Give us a quantized measure of manageable progress.  Like one part of a lo..ong project accomplished. Or like completing one cycle of an endless process. Would we like to compare with the earth going around the sun? Maybe not a good idea. A century taking 365 days to complete. Or maybe compare to Victor Trumper and Don Bradman and Majid Khan – getting a century in the very first session of a test match. Ah but that maybe going too fast for this crowded bandwagon of Atulites.

Well then maybe the Phileas Fogg of the Victorian Britain, who put the girdle around the world in eighty days. Hmm. . . that could be a close measure. Although I assure you that this bandwagon is trotting along somewhat faster than him, and his trusted valet – Passepartout. Now this name always intrigued me till the time I discovered that this faithful valet was a Frenchman. And that explained a lot that happened in the saga of the precise Mr. Fogg.

So let’s see. We are now at the 168th century mark on this trip into the dreamland of music. If he did a Fogg-Song-A-Day on his trip, one girdle of the earth would account for 80 songs. And if he did this 168 times, he would have enjoyed the flavor of 13,440 editions of Hindi film music. So yes, we are doing better than him on that count.

[Ah yes, you may catch the misdirection in my drift, but then this is just a tongue in cheek opening of the one hundred and sixty eighth hundred milestone post of remarkable blog.]

Remarkable is just one word, and it is incapable of spanning the entire gamut of emotions that arise when I begin to describe this blog. And its accomplishments. And yes, we have a gargantuan accomplishment, as recent as three days ago, that we must also talk about. And we will.

So yes, remarkable is an inadequate qualifier. Into the fourteenth year now, and few months away from completing it. And no bureaucratic or corporate infrastructure to drive it. And appearing on a day to day basis, just like the sun rising in the east every day. The drive of THE one person, and the “साथी हाथ बढ़ाना. . .” pull and push of the entire bandwagon. In my entire personal experience of all the young years I have, I have never seen or even heard someone mention something similar; of the classic real life manifestation of the celebrated poetic idiom of Majrooh Sb – “. . . लोग साथ आते गए, और कारवां बनता गया”.

Beyond all the kudos and accolades and all the bouquets and all the doffed headgear that we can shout out with joy, we must also acknowledge and honor – that element of destiny that actually drives all the human endeavors. Like the Marco of ‘Guide’ says to Raju, when he discovers the lost caves of ancient history, replete with sculpted beauties – a lifetime of aspirations realized. He says, “. . . लेकिन तुम जानते हो राजू, आज तक कोई पारखी यहाँ तक क्यों नहीं आया? क्योंकि ये काम मेरी किस्मत में लिखा था।” [“But do you know Raju, why no connoisseur has ever reached here? Because this discovery was destined to be my endeavor.”]

Yes, the endeavors of the chosen, ordained by destiny. For other than that, there is no plausible explanation as to why it happens so in the affairs of men and in the flow of history. Accomplishments, discoveries, explorations, deeds of triumph – history always has a name written on them. It is never that hordes of men discovered America, or that a whole school of mathematicians got together to propose the methods of Calculus. History always has a name – a singular busybody to associate with high tides of achievements.

This blog, by any measure, is a feat of incalculable perseverance, and defined merit that has endured years and years of continuity. And that is yet an understatement, as for the subject matter that this blog deals with – the unending ocean of music that is the Hindi film song. And a project that has now assumed a life of its own. At the 16,800 mark today, we are just about at the one third mark, considering just the first five decades of Hindi cinema. And not even at one fifth, if the scale expands to cover almost the entire ten decades of film music – as the time passes. Only an insightful vision can fathom the purpose, the purposefulness, and the lasting dedication that has brought this humble beginning that started with saying – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li” to that zenith of accomplishment where the burden of the group song now is

Geeton Se Dosti Hai, Music Se Yaari Hai
Aise Maze Ki Pyaare Zindagi Hamaari Hai

A Labor of Love – so rightly printed in the banner of our home page. There is no other way accomplishments of such enormous magnitude are made. Decidedly yes, one song at a time. But the cumulative effect of the persistent doggedness and the dedicated perseverance brings us here to this pinnacle of a looming mountain range ahead.

There is so much about this blog that boggles the mind that I would like to propose we stop calling this Atul-Song-a-Day Blog and start calling it Atul-Song-a-Day Boggler. Because that is what happens with this bandwagon – a new mind boggling something or the other week-in and week-out. Everything is so colossal and titanic about this blog that it is now beyond even creating wonder in the minds of regulars.

And yet, we have events on the blog that shake us all. Three days ago, on 25th Jan, the visitor clock on our home paged logged in the 15 Millionth visit. Atul ji had done some basic averaging to announce that we are clocking more than three thousand visitors per day, which in turn translates to two visitors hitting this blog every minute. Quite a crazy number considering that this blog deals with a topic that one would consider as not being the choice of majority of the social media users. Hindi film song, and that too pre 1980s. And goodness, non digital music – who would prefer that in this age. But of course, the numbers belie expectations. 3000+ hits a day – I am sure very few non-commercial, non-social-media web sites can boast of such a massive following.

So, 168th century. And 15 million visitors. Celebrations are called for and have been announced. But of the date today, there is one more celebration that we must honor and observe. Suman Kalyanpur, an eminent and essential Diva of Hindi cinema, turns 85 today.

The profiles and biographies and discographies – all have been touched upon and presented in numerous posts on this blog itself. I will not attempt to present those details again. I will talk about Suman Kalyanpur, as I see her in my mind, an artist, an accomplished singer who has made her mark on the history of Indian cinema, in face of many odds and struggles.

The singular expression that comes to mind when her name is mentioned – a quiet and humble persona that has led a blemish-less career as a playback singer, a career that has lasted almost four decades of active performance. The tinsel town that is India’s film industry, is a hard and difficult place to survive. Much has been said about the circumstances that have been faced by many a talented and gifted artists who did not get their seat on the stage of first tier performers. And it is surprising to see many a name that did not make it.

But surely, here is a name that was not a first preference of the top line banners and music directors. Despite that, to make a mark and leave behind memories of songs that will never be forgotten – that is surely an accomplishment. A major part of her repertoire belongs to the B and C grade cinema. And when one listens to those obscure and forgotten sounds and melodies, one is surely inclined to wonder.

Today, I present an obscure and unheard melody – a song from an obscure film from 1963 – ‘Royal Mail’. One of the many variations of the theme of Zorro that have kept appearing regularly in Indian cinema. For a long time, this film was unavailable, until recently, when the video of this appeared online. Although the film is available now, but all the songs of this film are not. Especially this song, a solo rendition by Suman Kalyanpur – I have not been able to locate it online, and so I have uploaded it from my collection.

Way back in 2014, I had uploaded one song of this film, at the request of a reader of another blog. That song is “Chali Jaaye Re Jeevan Ki Gaadi”. The lead pair in this film are somewhat unknown names – Mahesh Kumar and Ambika. The above mentioned song was picturised on this lead pair. And today’s song also features the lead pair. Mahesh Kumar is present in the clip, but only Ambika is lip syncing the song. The dialogues leading into the song indicate the situation. The Rajkumari (Ambika) was in some trouble, and a masked vigilante (Mahesh Kumar) saves her. This masked person is known in the land as Royal Mail, and is a friend of the poor and the oppressed, and a foe of the oppressors. And when he asks permission to leave, Rajkumari breaks into this song, expressing her gratitude and requesting the masked masquerader to stay and accept her love.

The words are from the pen of Indeevar, and the music is by Avinash Vyas. An unheard and lovely song that I post today, to honor Suman ji on her 85th birthday. I wish her well, I wish her good health and comfort and I wish her many more such celebrations to follow.

So, we have had centuries today, we have had millions, and we also have an important birthday celebration. 28th Jan, 2022 – a red letter day of sorts.

I wish Atul ji, and the rest of the gang of bandwagoneers many more centuries up ahead. That the drums may keep rolling and the band keeps on playing – all the wonderful music that we love.

I would like to close this post with some lines remembered from the very first song posted by Atul ji, four thousand nine hundred and forty one days ago –

ab aage jo bhi ho anjaam, dekha jaayega
khuda tarash liya, aur bandagi kar li

Happy listening.


Song – Zindagi Dene Wale Dil To Mera Leta Jaa  (Royal Mail) (1963) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

dil ki aankhon se tujhko dekha
hum ne pehchaan liya
tere dil ki pooja mein
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

phool sa dil seena parbat sa
tujh sa koi dildaar kahaan
tere iraade rok sakey jo
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

sab kuchh de kar kuchh na liya
tu kaisa dene waala hai
tera shukriya jaane waale
kaisa jaadu daala hai
kaisa jaadu daala hai
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

दिल की आँखों से तुझको देखा
हमने पहचान लिया
तेरे दिल की पूजा में
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

फूल सा दिल सीना परबत सा
तुझ सा कूई दिलदार कहाँ
तेरे इरादे रोक सके जो
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

सब कुछ दे कर कुछ ना लिया
तू कैसा देने वाला है
तेरा शुक्रिया जाने वाले
कैसा जादू डाला है
कैसा जादू डाला है
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
