jhoola kinne daala re amraiyya
re amraiyya
re amraiyya

It was the 94th Birth Anniversary of Late Khaiyyam yesterday (18 february 2020).

Born as Mohammed Zahur Khayyam Hashmi(18 February 1927 – 19 August 2019), he started his career as music director, as Sharmaji of duo of Sharmaji-Vermaji with Rehman Verma.

He passed away last year on 19th August 2019, after an illustrious career of more than 4 decades. As per the stats page, he has composed 377 songs in 42 movies, out of which 179 songs are already posted. My personal favourite songs list has to start with the songs of Rafi songs in ‘”Shola aur Shabnam” , include “Bazaar”, “Umrao Jaan”, “Shaam e gham ki Qasam”(Footpath), Rafi solo “hai kali kali ke lab par”, some songs of “Razia Sultan” especially the sehra “Aye khuda Shukr tera”, songs of ‘Kabhi Kabhi”, “bahaaron mera jeewan bhi sanwaaro” (Aakhri Khat) etc.

I cannot forget to mention two songs of “Shankar Husaain” both the unforgettable solos by Rafi and Lata Mangeshar. The list will go all the way to the songs of ‘Phir Subah hogi” . And “Simti hui ye ghadiyaan” of “Chambal Ki Qasam”. The song of “Khandaan” (ye Mulaquat ek bahana hai) and Rafi-Lata duet from “Chambal kiQasam” were special favourites at the All India Radio’s Urdu service afternoon show (Aap ki farmaish ).

From a layman point of view also the songs composed by Khaiyyam are always melodious and have a distinctive style of their own. I can call it almost a ‘Genre”, very similar to the style of “Jaidev”. Jaidev was an assistant to S. D. Burman, but I was able to find any references it Khaiyyam was an assistant to anyone. He may have been as the training is required here also as any other field.

He composed non film songs and ghazals also, almost 34 of which were sung by Mohammed Rafi.

As per Wikipedia :

“On his 89th birthday, Khayyam announced the formation of a charitable trust, Khayyam Jagjeet Kaur KPG Charitable Trust, and decided to donate his entire wealth to the trust to support budding artists and technicians in India. His wealth at the time of announcement was valued at around ₹10 crore (US$1.4 million)”

The song I have selected to present on this occasion is from the film ‘Bambai ki Billi”, alternatively named “Wild Cat”. How does “Bambai” translate of Wild in this instance, I can’t begin to decipher. The singer of this song is Lata Mangeshkar, with chorus. Lyricist is Hasrat Jaipuri, composer is the the one and only Khaiyyam.

The tune of the song is reminiscent of this song from “Kabhi Kabhi”.


Song-Main baaghon ki morni jab naachhon taa taa thaiyya (Bombay Ki Billi )(1960) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Khaiyyam
Chorus

Lyrics

Jab jab mori paayal baaje
Logan ka aa dil dhhadke
Dekh ke mori chhalbalwa ??
man mein bijuriyaa kadkey ae

Main baaghon ki morni
Jab naachun taa taa thhaiyya

Haay re mori maiyya aa
Main baaghon ki morni

Dilwaalon ki julmi najar se
Koyi bacha le daiyya
Haay re mori maiyya hoye

Jinki batiyaan zeher bhari hain

Haay re mori maiyya hoye

Chaand bhi sharmaaye hai

Jin raston se chham chham jaaun
Taake mohe sipahiyaa
Dilwaalon ki julmi najar se

Haay re mori maiyya hoye
tu baaghon ki morni
Jab naache taa taa thhaiyya
Dilwaalon ki julmi najar se
Koyi bacha le daiyya

baal ye kaale
Pyaar se paale naag hain

jo palkon par nahin aate
woh aansoo kis ne dekhe hain

Today (28 september 2019) is the 90th birthday of Lata Mangeshkar (DoB 28 september 1929).

She started her playback career in 1940s and she went on to sing till early 2000s, viz for seven decades ! Mindboggling indeed.

She sang just under 5700 songs in Hindi movies according to our estimate. The blog has 3475 of her songs and so we are one of the rare places on internet where so many of her songs can be accessed at one place.

Another 2000 odd of her songs remain uncovered. it is a matter of time before her remaining songs (that are available) will also find representation in the blog.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Dard”(1981). “Dard”(1981) was produced by Shyam Sundar Shivdasani and directed by Ambreesh Sangal fo Murghan Enterprises, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Poonam Dhillon, Om Shivpuri, Krishn Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Shashi Kiran, Madhup Sharma, Kamaldeep, Harjeet, Poornima Jairam, Mazhar Khan (2), Master Raju etc wih special appearance by Ranjeeta.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four songs have already been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Dard”(1981) to appear in the song. This song is sung by Lata. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyam.

The song is picturised as an expression of love song on Hema Malini and Rajesh Khanna. The song is not lip synced by Hema Malini rather it gets plays in the background.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Na jaane kyaa huaa

Len dil mein basaa
Naa jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Aanchal kahaan
main kahaan hoon
Ye mujhe hosh kyaa hai
Ye bekhudi toone di hai
Pyaar kaa ye nashaa hai
Sun le zaraa
saaz e dil gaa rahaa
Hai naghmaa teraa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Kaliyon ki ye sej mehke
Raat jaage milan ki
Kho jaayein dhadkan mein teri
Dhadkanen mere mann ki
Aa paas aa

Main jaaun samaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah

Banaa ke aainaa tujhe ae jaaneman
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa

shaam-e-gham ki kasam aaj ghamgeen hain ham

The evening in the first line turned into a night of sadness when I came to know from ASAD Group that Khayyam saab is no more with us. His popular songs started ringing in my ears. Those were the songs with which I have grown up from a teenager to a senior citizen. I had a disturbed sleep last night as some of his songs resonated intermittently in my mind. In the morning, I thought that the best way to get out of such feeling is to write a tributary article for Khayyam saab.

With his death, we have lost the last icon among the music directors of the golden period of Hindi film music He created his own ‘gharana’ of Hindi film music and very rarely deviated from it. The melodious songs he composed were mainly based on Hindustani classical raagas.

As I said, some of his songs were often coming to my mind. The emotional support song tum apna ranz-o-gham apni pareshaani mujhe de do was the one which gave me goosebumps. Not only Khayyam saab and Jagjit Kaur were creators of this melody, I felt that the latter was actually the emotional support system for the former. I identify wo subah kabhi to aayegi as optimistic in the midst of pessimism. I remember Khayyam saab in bahaaron mera jeevan bhi sanwaaron for its a long prelude of nearly 100 seconds of santoor, sitar and flute which created the right ambiance for Raag Pahadi based melody. Among other songs, how can I forget ye kya jagah hai doston and the ‘haunted feel’ song with pauses, ae dei-e-nadaan arzoo kya hai?

Khayyam saab who was so much committed to the quality of his musical compositions, selected only films with good story line. His musical compositions had the benefit of poetry rather than the lyrics. This is reflected in his working mostly with poets of repute like Sahir Ludhianvi, Kaifi Azmi, Jaan Nisar Akhtar, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, Nida Fazli, Shahryar etc.

There was something for his young listeners and audiences too. Like hai kali kali ke lab par from ‘Lala Rukh’ (1958), a teasing song, jis pyaar mein ye haal ho us pyaar ki tauba from ‘Phir Subah Hogi’ (1958), a jazzy number rut jawaan jawaan raat meherbaan from ‘Aakhri Khat’ (1966), an aspiring love song, aankhon mein hamne aapke sapne sajaaye hain from ‘Thhodi Si Bewafaayi’(1980) and many more.

Coming from a highly educated family from Jalandhar, Khayyam saab could not complete even his high school studies as he was smitten by his idol, K L Saigal and Hindi films. His wish was to become an actor-singer like K L Saigal. Expelled by his father from his house for neglecting his studies, Khayyam saab came to Delhi and stayed with his uncle. Realising his nephew’s interest in music, his uncle arranged his musical training under Pandit Amarnath and his brothers, Husnlal and Bhagatram.

A filmy career which spanned over 7 decades, Khayyam saab started as an apprentice to music Director, G A Chishti in Lahore in 1945. He came to Mumbai in January 1947 with Rahman Verma who was also assisting G A Chishti. Khayyam saab sang his first song ‘dono jahaan teri mohabat mein haar ke’ a duet with Zohrabai Ambalewali under Husnlal-Bhagatram for the film ‘Romeo & Juliet’ (1947). His first film as a music director in partnership with Rehman Verma was ‘Heer Ranjha’ (1948) under the pseudo name Sharmaji-Vermaji.

The song which brought Khayyam saab into limelight was akele mein wo ghabraate to honge from ‘Biwi’ (1950), his third film. This did not help him much in his career path. ‘Footpath’ (1953) was his first film in which he gave the music under his real name, Khayyam on the advice of the film’s director, Zia Sarahadi. shaam-e-gham ki kasam aaj ghamheen hain hum from this film became very popular as a ‘blue mood’ song. Khayyam saab had revealed that he had used western symphony based interlude in this song, especially the first interlude.

The high points in musical compositions of Khayyam saab were reflected in all the songs of ‘Lala Rukh’ (1958), ‘Phir Subah Hogi’ (1958), ‘Shola Aur Shabnam (1961), ‘Shagoon’ (1964), ‘Mohabbat Isko Kehte Hai,’ (1965) and ‘Aakhri Khat’ (1966). Still the success in terms of recognition and box office alluded him. By this time, he had already spent about 2 decades in Hindi film industry but was not in the reckoning in the list of top music directors.

Sometime in the latter half of 1960s, Khayyam saab decided to take a sabbatical from Hindi film industry when he felt that the films he was being offered were not his worth. The sabbatical continued for nearly 8 years. During this period, he devoted his time and energy to compose some of his finest non-film songs among 200 odd songs. Here also he did with the top playback singers like Talat Mehmood and Mohammed Rafi. Begum Akhtar who was very close to Madan Mohan, chose Khayyam saab for composing ghazals for her LP Ghazal album in 1974.

Generally, it is said that once a film artist remains out of film industry for a long time, it is difficult for that artist to make a comeback. I think, Khayyam saab is the only among music directors who made a grand come back with the success of ‘Kabhie Kabhie’ (1976) for which he got Filmfare Award. The next feather in his cap was the outstanding music in ‘Umrao Jaan’ (1981). He was bestowed with National Award for music in this film. In his second coming, he remained active for about 10 years.

It was interesting to know that some of his best music compositions had come from films like ‘Phir Subah Hogi’ (1958), ‘Kabhie Kabhie‘(1976), Umrao Jaan’ (1981) and ‘Razia Sultan’ (1983) where he was not the first choice as a music director. How much efforts and pain he must have taken to prove his credentials to the respective producers/directors to make the music of these film extraordinaire to justify their faith in him.

I have always felt that God has been unkind to Khayyam saab. At every stage of his life – from his childhood time onward, he had to struggle for survival. It took nearly 3 decades to come under the category of a successful music director when ‘Kabhie Kabhie’ (1976) became successful. He got recognition from the film industry as well as from the Government. But his success gave him company for less than 10 years. When he had everything for his modest living, he lost his only son, Pradeep in March 2012. But Khayyam saab had no complaint against God. In almost all his interviews I had read and watched, he had always said ‘Allah ki meharbaani hai, waah Guruji ki kripa hai, Ishawar ki kripa hai’.

Khayyam saab had also composed songs for about dozen unreleased films, one of which was ‘Anjuman’ (1986). As a tribute to Khayyam saab, I am presenting one of songs from this film, ‘kab yaad mein tera saath nahin kab tera haath mein haath nahin’ which is close to my heart. This ‘Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s song is rendered by Khayyam saab and his wife, Jagjit Kaur. I think, this is the only film song which they have sung together.

I offer my condolences to the bereaved family and his friends.

Khayyam saab, you will always be with us through your melodious music.

“Sandhya”(1975), though a movie of recent vintage by the standards of this blog, is an obscure movie. This movie was directed by Mirza Masood Baig and Sunil Kumar for Knight Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Aziz Mirza, Nargis Bano, Sunil Kumar, Ranjeeta Thakur, Sharad Kumar, Neelo Roy, Kamal Kapoor, Heeralal, Ratnmala, Haider KUmar, Dilip Dutt, Mona, Baby Bindu, Mishri Lal, Hariram Raheja, Maujiram, Radheshyam, Mohammad ali, Harun, Romeo, Rehan, Surendra Sharma, Prasad, ashok, Moolchand, M L Kapoor, Sajjan Harilalka, Yudhishthir etc in it.

This movie had three songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song, though an obscure song by now is one that I was aware of during its time, before this song was forgotten.

This song is sung by Sulakshana Pandit. Jaan Nisaar akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyaam.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics

Blog Day : 3874 Post No. : 14894

The New Theatres Ltd.(NT) has given some outstanding and famous directors to the Hindi film industry who got fame on an all-India level. A couple of them got recognition in the international level also. I list below a few of them:

Debaki Bose was known for his films like ‘Chandidas’ (Bengali, 1932), ‘Puran Bhagat’ (1933), ‘Seeta’ (1934), ‘Vidyapati’ (1937). ‘Nartaki’ (1940) etc. Kidar Sharma called him the ‘Dronacharya of film making’. He was the first director who used background music. Probably, he was also the first Indian film director who was honoured with a Certificate of Merit for his direction of the film ‘Seeta’ (1933) at Cannes Film Festival.

Nitin Bose was known for the use of his magical camera angle in the films he directed. His camera angles spoke more than the dialogues. Some of the notable films he directed was ‘Chandidas’ (Hindi, 1934), ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ (1935), ‘President’ (1937), ‘Dharti Mata’ (1938), ‘Milan’ (1946), ‘Deedar’ (1951), ‘Waaris’ (1954), ‘Ganga Jamuna’ (1961) etc. He was the first to experiment with playback singing in his film ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ (1935). He got the idea when he saw Pankaj Mullick singing in tandem with a song which he was playing on his gramophone record player.

P C Barua, though not originally from NT, got name and fame when he joined NT and directed ‘Devdas’ (1935). He directed some other films like ‘Manzil’ (1936), ‘Mukti’ (1937), ‘Zindagi’ (1940), ‘Jawaab’ (1942), ‘Subah-Shaam’ (1944) etc. He was the first director who used ‘flash back’ technique in ‘Roop Lekha’ (1934).

Bimal Roy started his filmy career as Assistant to P C Barua in cinematography, editing and direction. He was the Cinematographer for films like ‘Devdas’ (1935), Mukti’ (1937), ‘Haar Jeet’ (1940), ‘Meenakshi’ (1942) etc. He got his first assignment as director in NT when he directed ‘Hamraahi’ (1945). Other well-known films which he directed include ‘Parineeta’ (1953), ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (1953), ‘Devdas’ (1955), ‘Madhumati’ (1958), ‘Sujata’ (1959), “Bandini’ (1963). ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (1953)’ was critically acclaimed and won a prize at Cannes Film Festival. ‘Madhumati’ (1958) got a total of 9 ‘Filmfare’ awards.

Name of a well-known director from NT is missing from the above list. I have chosen him in this article for his detailed profile. And he is Phani Majumdar.

Phani Majumdar (28/12/1911-16/05/1994) was born in Faridkot in Bengal Presidency (now in Bangla Desh). After his graduation in 1930, Phani Majumdar worked as a typist in a company. His connection with films started when he joined as Stenographer to P C Barua in Barua Studio sometime in 1932. Later he became his Assistant Director in ‘Devdas’ (1935) and ‘Mukti’ (1937). He was a script-writer for ‘Abhagin’ (1938).

Phani Majumdar got his opportunity to debut as director in ‘Street Singer’ (1938) with K L Saigal and Kanan Devi in lead roles. This film is regarded as classical musical melodrama like ‘Devdas’ (1935). His debut film was highly successful at the box office. With this film, K L Saigal and Kanan Devi reached the pinnacle of their filmy career as actor-singer.

After successfully directing ‘Kapal Kundala’ (1939) for NT, Phani Majumdar shifted his base to Bombay (Mumbai) sometime in 1941. But working as a free-lance director was not a cakewalk for him especially at a time when there was scarcity of raw films, getting actors for the films who were mostly studio attached and the studio time for shooting. But due to his fame as a director of ‘Street Singer’ (1938) and also his friendly nature, he could overcome the initial obstacles.

Luck favoured Phani Majumdar. Chimanlal Trivedi had closed down his film production company, CIRCO Productions and had set up a new banner, Laxmi Productions. He engaged Phani Majumdar for directing his first film ‘Tamanna’ (1942) under the new banner. From the cast and crew of the film, it would appear that Phani Majumdar had a free hand in selecting them. Apart from actors for the film like Leela Desai, Jagdish Sethi, K C Dey who were earlier attached to NT, he had engaged 7 technicians from Bengal for the film. This was the first film in Mumbai for Leela Desai.

‘Filmindia’, in its review of ‘Tamanna’ (1942) while lauding the performances of Jairaj, Leela Desai, Jagdish Sethi and K C Dey, was critical of the direction by Phani Majumdar. However, some of the film producers seemed to have a different views. The result was that Phani Majumdar was flooded with new assignments as director for ‘Mohabbat’ (1943), ‘Rajkumar’ (1944) and ‘Meena’ (1944). Thereafter, he produced and directed ‘Devdasi’ (1945), Insaaf’ (1946) and ‘Door Chalen’ (1946). He also directed an off-beat film ‘Hum Bhi Insaan Hain’ (1948) starring Dev Anand and Ramola.

In the early 1950s, Phani Majumdar directed ‘Andolan’ (1951) which was virtually a documentary type film depicting the history of the Indian National Congress since its inception in 1885 until 1947 and India’s freedom struggle. Thereafter, he directed Bombay Talkies’ ‘Tamasha’ (1952) and ‘Baadbaan’ (1954), the latter being actually produced by the Bombay Talkies Workers Cooperatives. Both these films were critically acclaimed though they were not successful in terms of box office receipts. Shakti Samanta assisted Phani Majumdar in both these films in direction as also in dialogues/script writing.

During 1955-59, Phani Majumdar joined Shaws’ Malay Films Productions, Singapore. During this period, he directed 11 films in Malay, Chinese and English languages. He directed the first Eastman Colour film in Malay language, ‘Hang Tuah’ (1956). The film won awards in the Asian Film Festival held in Hong Kong in 1957 and was nominated for the Golden Berlin Bear in Berlin International Film Festival, 1957. The prominent Malaysian film maker, Jamir Sulong assisted Phani Majumdar in his 6 out of 8 films he directed in Singapore.

After returning to India in 1959, he directed successful films like ‘Aarti’ (1962), ‘Oonche Log’ (1965) and ‘Aakashdeep’ (1965). In all, he directed 26 feature films in Hindi during 1938-1989. He wrote the scripts for most of his films which he directed. In addition, he also directed a few Children’s films and films in other languages like Bengali, Punjabi, Magadhi, Maithili, Malay, Chinese, English etc. Towards the end of his filmy career, he directed a few TV serials in Kolkata.

Phani Majumdar left for heavenly abode on May 16, 1994 at the age of 83. He was married to actress Monica Desai, the younger sister of actress Leela Desai.

Phani Majumdar mostly directed films which were acclaimed as creator of social consciousness. One of such films he directed was ‘‘Dhobi Doctor’ (1954). The film was produced under the banner of Ranjit Movietone. The star cast included Kishore Kumar and Usha Kiran in the lead role supported by Kanhaiyalal, Gautam, Krishnakant, Nazira Begum, Shivraj, Usha Rani, Master Jagdeep, Baby Asha Parekh etc

The gist of the story of the film based on the film’s review in January 24, 1954 issue of ‘Filmfare’ and the song book of the film is as under:

Ramu (childhood roe played by Jagdeep) is the son of a poor Dhobi, Mahadeo. Ramu is smart and intelligent. His elder sister, Lakshmi is very proud of her younger brother. Every evening, Lakshmi walks through the fields to pick him up from the school for back home.

One day, Lakshmi falls ill. Mahadeo has no money to bring doctor to the village. Having ranked top in his class in the school examination, Ramu has to attend to a prize distribution ceremony. But Lakshmi cannot accompany him as she is ill. After the prize distribution ceremony, Ramu returns home quickly to show his Didi the books he received as the prize. He finds that his Didi is dead. Choked with grief, he asks his father as to why Didi died. Mahadeo has no answer except that he was so poor that he could not afford to call a doctor. The broken-hearted Ramu vows that he would become a doctor and treat free the poor in the village.

Mahadeo works hard to earn more money for the fulfillment of Ramu’s dream. In the school, Ramu is taunted by some of his rich classmates for a dream of a poor Ramu of becoming a doctor but he is indifferent to the taunts. Ramu’s hard work and his father’s struggle bring fruits. He finishes his school with good performance and gets admitted to the medical college.

Ramu’s aptitude for medical studies attracts attention of the Vice- Principal, Professor Tripathi. He takes a greater interest in Ramu’s studies. Ramu becomes a doctor. Professor Tripathi helps him further in his practice by placing his laboratory at Ramu’s disposal. He also allows Ramu to study in his residence since his house in the village is far-off. Professor Tripathi has a young daughter, Uma (Usha Kiran) who plays pranks with Ramu. Gradually, Uma falls in love with Ramu. However, he is shy to reciprocate the love. Moreover, he is aware that he is the son of a poor Dhobi and Uma is the daughter of a rich father. There is struggle between his heart and realities of the situation. However, at the end, they unite after overcoming the stumbling block of the society.

‘Dhobi Doctor’ (1954) had 7 songs of which one song has been covered in the Blog. Interestingly, out of the 7 songs as many as 6 songs are solo songs of Asha Bhonsle. The remaining one song is sung by Kishore Kumar. All the songs were written jointly by Ali Sardar Jafri and Majrooh Sutanpuri and were composed by Khayyam.

I am presenting one of the remaining six songs from the film which is a rare one. The song is ‘taaron se akhiyaan milaaun main’ sung by Asha Bhonsle. When I first heard this song, I was surprised to note that the composition as well as the orchestrations of the song sounded like that of O P Nayyar. The fact is that when Khayyam composed the music for this song, O P Nayyar had not established himself as the music director of repute to copy his style of music. He came into prominence only after a runaway success of ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) and its songs. But the film ‘Dhobi Doctor’ (1954) was released on January 19, 1954, about 4 months before the release of ‘Aar Paar’ (1954).

Enjoy this song of Khayyam in the style of O P Nayyar.

Note: The information on Phani Majumdar is mainly from indiancine.ma, ‘Filmindia’ magazines, ‘Film Pictorial’- April 1945 issue and inputs from newspapers.

Apne kadmon pe mohabbat waale ae ae
Apne kadmon pe mohabbat waale ae ae
Aasmaanon ko jhukaa lete hain
Dard seene mein chhupa lete hain
Dard seene mein chhupa lete hain

Ahl-e-dil yoon bhi nibhaa lete hain ae ae
Dard seene mein chhupa lete hain
Dard seene mein chhupa lete hain

स्वर – लता मंगेशकर

अहले दिल यूँ भी निभा लेतें हैं ए ए
अहले दिल यूँ भी निभा लेतें हैं ए ए
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं

अहले दिल यूँ भी निभा लेतें हैं ए ए
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं

दिल कि महफ़िल में यादों के लिए
दिल कि महफ़िल में यादों के लिए
याद कि शम्मा जला लेतें हैं ए ए
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं

जलते मौसम में भी ये दीवाने ए
जलते मौसम में भी ये दीवाने ए ए
कुछ हसीं पल खिला लेतें है
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं

अपनी आँखों को बना कर ये जुबां
अपनी आँखों को बना कर ये जुबां
कितने अफ़साने सुना लेतें हैं ए
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं

जिनको जीना है मोहब्बत के लिए ए
जिनको जीना है मोहब्बत के लिए ए ए
अपनी हस्ती को मिटा लेतें हैं
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं

अहले दिल यूँ भी निभा लेतें हैं ए ए
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं

दिल के दामन को सजा लेतें हैं ए ए
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं

अपने क़दमों पे मोहब्बत वाले ए ए
अपने क़दमों पे मोहब्बत वाले ए ए
आसमानों को झुका लेते हैं

दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं

दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं
दर्द सीने में छुपा लेतें हैं

Song-Nigaahon mein base aise (Taatar Ka Chor)(1955) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Khayyam

Lyrics

Nigaahon mein base aise
nigaahon mein
base aise
khayaalon pe ho yoon chhaaye
ke khud ko bhi jo dekhen to
teri soorat nazar aaye
nigaahon mein base aise

na jaane kaisa jaadoo thha
na jaane kaisi masti thhi
ee ee ee ee ee
na jaane kaisa jaadoo thha
na jaane kaisi masti thhi
ee ee ee ee ee
raha na hosh baaqi jab
nazar ke jaam takraaye
ke khud ko bhi jo dekhen to
teri soorat nazar aaye
nigaahon mein base aise

nahin hai farq husn o ishq ka
ulfat ki mehfil mein
aen aen aen aen aen
nahin hai farq husn o ishq ka
ulfat ki mehfil mein
aen aen aen aen aen
shama ka dil jo pighle to
wo khud parwaana ho jaaye
ke khud ko bhi jo dekhen to
teri soorat nazar aaye
nigaahon mein base aise

chale aao ke dil ki beqaraari
badhti jaati hai
ae ae ae ae ae
chale aao ke dil ki beqaraari
badhti jaati hai
ae ae ae ae ae
koi yoon hi tasawwur se
kahaan tak dil ko bahlaaye
ke khud ko bhi jo dekhen to
teri soorat nazar aaye
nigaahon mein base aise
