#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

In the mission of covering ‘movies with same title’ on the blog, today’s song introduces ‘Har Har Mahadev-1974’, which is making its debut on the blog today with this song. We already have a movie ‘Har Har Mahadev’ of the year ‘1950’ on the blog.

‘Har Har Mahadev-1974’ a ‘mythological movie’ was directed by Chandrakant for ‘Joy Films’. Chandrakant was also the producer of this movie. It had Dara Singh, Jayshree Gadkar, Padma Khanna, Uma, Aruna Irani, Sujata, Gopi Kishan, Satyajeet, Abhi Bhattacharya, Randhawa, Shahu Modak, Asit Sen, Babu Raje, Arvind Pandya, Azad, Master Tito, Suryakumar, Ratnamala, Himmat Singh Chauhan, Dilip Dutt, Vishwas Kunthe, Hercules, Polsan, Moolchand, Rajrani, Saudagar Singh, Jagdish Raj, V.Gopal, Pal Sharma, Radheshyam, Rinku, Narmada Shankar, Anil Kumar, Dhanraj Pehalwan, Minal Mehta, Uma Khosla, Manjiri Desai, Devyani Thakkar, Sarita Devi, Shri Bhagwan, Sitaram, Shery, Kedar Saigal, Thakur G.S. and others. Sumitra Devi made a special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Pragji Dosa and dialogues were written by Ramesh Pande. Editing of this movie was done by Ram Khade and Vithoba Surve.

This movie had as many as seven songs in it written by Kavi Pradeep and music composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. Singers Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Aziz Nazan and Kanchan had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by censor board on 22.08.1974.

Dara Singh played the role of Mahadev in this movie. Today 12th July 2020 is the eighth remembrance anniversary (19.11.1928- 12.07.2012) of this most loved personality of Indian Cinema.

He is mostly remembered and loved for the mythological character of ‘Hanuman’, he also played Bhagwan Shiv in some of the movies viz. ‘Tulsi Vivaah-1971’, ‘Hari Darshan-1972’, and ‘Har Har Mahadev-1974’ (as per information available on ‘wiki’).

Remembering him today on his Remembrance Day and paying our tributes to him with this song picturised on him where he as Mahadev is seen in his ‘dhyan mudra’ while Jayshree Gadkar as devi Parvati is also seen.

This song a ‘shiv stuti bhajan’ is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and on screen it is lip sync by Babu Raje (playing ‘Narad muni’ here) and another actor whom I am unable to identify. There are many other artists who are performing in this wonderful song.

Let us now enjoy this song written by Kavi Pradeep ji in this auspicious month of ‘shraavan’ which is already in progression in some parts of the country and about to begin in next week in other parts of the country.

With this song ‘Har Har Mahadev-1974’ makes its debut on the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

This is an attempt to remember two legends of Bollywood with one post.

On reviewing the “anniversaries page” of the blog I found an opportunity to introduce the qawwali song from a 1982 released (exact date being 27/05/1982 meaning the movie is 38 years old), Raj Kumar Kohli produced and directed, multi starrer “Badle Ki Aag” (Flames of Revenge).

The recent stay-at-home gave me the time to sit through this movie. It is a very typical, simple, regular story with a slight twist.

There is a family of father (Kadar Khan), mother (Nirupa Roy), two sons and a daughter. The father in his greed for wealth wipes out his partner’s family but the children of this family escape the mass-murder. Nirupa Roy gets separated from her sons in the course of walking out on her cruel greedy husband. She has her daughter with her. The sons grow up to be dacoits Shera (Dharmendra) and Lakhan (Sunil Dutt) and daughter (Sarika) an aspiring lawyer whose education is funded by Lakhan who has kept in touch with the mother and sister. Lakhan is a do-gooder daku where as Shera is ruthless.

Meanwhile the daughter (Reena Roy) of the affected family has been brought up in a kotha and nurses a desire to revenge her families misfortune. Her brother (Rajeev Anand who was seen in about 5 movies after which he turned producer) grows up to be a cop. There is one more important character in the whole setup- Inspector Amar Verma (Jeetendra) who is the son of Mohanlal Verma (Madan Puri) who is constantly tormented by Shera and Lakhan. Now here is the promised twist- at different times Geeta (Reena Roy) the dancer has had interaction with the three heroes and all of them have developed feelings for her. But she loves the Inspector who has seen her at different times with the other two and misunderstands her. Isn’t that a different kind of love-story. Here I should mention the existence of Bijli (Smita Patil) who loves Shera. Hope the readers have got confused about the very regular story that this movie had. The movie was a success at the Box-Office what with so many stars.

Today’s songs has the three heroes disguised as Qawwals at Janakidas’s son’s wedding. We have Smita Patil dancing around. Here I must admit that this post reminded me of this Qawwali sung by Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor and Suresh Wadkar. It had music by Laxmikant- Pyarelal and had lyrics by Verma Malik.

Small thoughts after seeing the song on repeat for writing this post- (1) Sunil Dutt and Jeetendra are jumping around and Dharmendra stays put on his mat. (2) Looks like this is the only time when Smita Patil has shared screen time with Jeetendra.

With this song we remember Sunil Dutt and Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar on their anniversaries.

Maangne Se Jo Maut Mil Jaati
Kaun Jeeta Is Zamaane Mein

Lata ji’s voice is so truly a match for the sadness oozing from this song, that seems to be so steeped in dejection and sorrow. The film – ‘Sunehre Kadam’ – the last one in Hindi cinema that he composed for in 1966. And as if this expression was not adequate, the film also has another equally melancholic song to match the depths of misery – “Na Baaz Aayaa Muqaddar Mujhe Mitaane Se”.

Bulo C Rani – music director, whose talent was never in question, and yet, in his career he stayed forever, in the sidelines and under the shadows of the bigger names in film. We celebrate his 99th anniversary of birth today, 6th May.

He was born this day in the year 1921, in Hyderabad, Sindh (now in Pakistan). As is with so many of the other lesser known artists of that era, practically no biographic information is documented. His father was a well known musician in his time. Bulo himself was a good singer and used to sing sufi kalaam, especially that of Abdul Shah Lateef. His love for music brought him to Lahore. He was just 21 at that time.

The shooting and processing of the film ‘Khandaan’ (1942) was in progress. Bulo met with Ghulam Haider, but did not get much attention from him. Then he also chanced to meet with DN Madhok, and a very good friendship came about. Madhok Sb got the young Bulo to travel with him to Bombay (now Mumbai). Once there, Madhok Sb got the young musician introduced into the world of Ranjeet Studios in the music department. He assisted Khemchand Prakash and Gyan Dutt in films like ‘Chandni’ (1942), ‘Sukh Dukh’ (1942), ‘Tansen’ (1943),  ‘Shahenshah Babar’ (1944) etc. In 1943 itself, his name appears for the first time in credits as a music director. He shares the music direction work with Gyan Dutt, for the film ‘Paighaan’ (1943). This is followed by a full independent responsibility for music direction, for the film ‘Caravan’ (1944).

Besides shaping up as a music director, the young Bulo was also singing. In his own films and also in films under the music direction of Khemchand Prakash and Gyan Dutt. He sang under the name of Bhola. Now that I read this name, I am wondering, whether the first name ‘Bulo’ is a variation on the name ‘Bhola’ that he used as a singer, and whether that his real first name was Bhola or Bhola-something.

With ‘Paighaam’ starts a journey of about two and a half decades during which he has given music to a little less than 600 songs in 68 or so films.

An interesting side note here. In the 1958 film ‘Al Hilal’, Bulo C created an iconic qawwaali of gigantic and everlasting popularity – “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne”. After that, he tried to recreate the same magic in practically every alternate film that he did in the next 7 to 8 years. One qawwali by him appears in the films ‘Tin Tin Tin’ (1959), ‘Black Tiger’ (1960) , ‘Pedro’ (1960), ‘Anarbaala’ (1961), ‘Room No. 17’ (1961), ‘Jaadu Mahal’ (1962), ‘Madame Zorro’ (1962), ‘Magic Box’ (1963), ‘Haqdaar’ (1964) and ‘Son Of Hatitai’ (1965). The tone of the qawwaalis is almost similar to the iconic qawwaali of ‘Al Hilal’. But alas, none of the later qawwaalis made any lasting impression.

After the mid 1960s, no more work came his way. The mood of the Hindi film music was under transition, and like a few other music directors, he slowly faded from the memory – both of the listening public and of the film producer fraternity, He did work on some Sindhi films, and started giving coaching classes for music. Forgotten by the industry and his friends, he descended into depression in his later years. The dejection in life came to such an extreme that he eventually ended his own life (May 24, 1993). That he could not get by asking, he snatched it for himself –

maangne se to nahin mili to badh ke khud hi chheen li
jeena nahin tha aur is zamaane mein

The song presented today is quite uncharacteristic in style. This sounds more like an OP Nayyar-ish melody than a Bulo C Rani tune. The film is ‘Black Tiger’ from 1960. The film is produced by MH Doctor under the banner of Highway Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Akku. It is a stunt film with the star cast listed as Nadira, Azad, Sheikh, Ram Raseela, Habeeb, Jilani, Heera Sawant, Najma, Charanjeet, Arvind Kumar, Malik, Maqbool, Kedar, Gulab, Daatu, Sadhna, and Belan etc. Hmm, it is interesting to note – Nadira appearing in the female lead role in a stunt film in 1960. That is if she is the same Nadira that we are familiar with. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this.

The film has 6 songs. 5 of them are written by Saba Afghani and the sixth one is by Tabish Kanpuri. This song is from the pen of Saba Afghani. The singing voices are of Geeta Dutt and Mahendra Kapoor. A delightful song of romantic exchange that has a very pleasing sound.

Listen and enjoy.

“Chhattees Ghante”(1974) was produced and directed by Raj Tilak for Tilak movies private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Sunil Dutt, Mala Sinha, Raj Kumar, Parveen Babi, Iftekhar, Ashoo, Ramesh Deo, Danny Denzongpa, Alankar Joshi, Sonia Sahni, Jagdish Raaj, Deven Verma, Urmila Bhatt, Madan Puri etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Chhattees Ghante”(1974) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhonsle. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Chakravorty.

The song is picturised as a Lord Ram bhajan. The picturisation shows Raj Kumar and Mala Sinha singing this bhajan. Master Alankar joshi, late for the bhajan by a few seconds, is hesitant to join his parents. Mala Sinha does not frown and gives him a pat assuring him that he may take his seat. And who is the lady seated behind them, devotedly joining her hands together. She is Parveen Babi.

It is rather unusual to see Raj Kumar and Parveen Babi, and also Mala Sinha to some extent, singing a bhajan. So that way, this song is a special song. 🙂

The picturisation also shows Ranjeet, trying to enter the house stealthily. So, unlike the other characters, he sticks faithfully to his reputation Hindi movies.

It is quite a nice and soothing song to listen to, especially in the morning. I listened to this song for the first time this morning, some 46 years after this song was created. 🙂

sone ko ham kalandar
aate hain bori bandar. . .

Yes, one of the very well known landmarks of Bombay (now Mumbai). And a very historic landmark at that. A lot has changed over the decades, but let us talk about the origins first.

As I searched for the meaning of the word Bori Bunder, I came across the following definition – a storage house for sacks; translating ‘bori’ as the sack made from jute thread, and ‘bunder’ identified as a variation of ‘bhandaar’ i.e. a storage house. This latter meaning is incorrect in my opinion. Some people who want to populate the Wikipedia and write with a modern mindset, probably are not aware that there are things called dictionaries for Hindi also. A quick check shows that ‘bunder’ (बंदर) is short form of ‘bundergaah’ (बन्दरगाह) which means a seaport, where ships come and stay for some time.

So anyways, coming back to the original thread. The claim for fame for Bori Bunder is that it is the first railway station built in India, and from where the first passenger train service was started on 16th April, 1853. This last Thursday, 16th April, the country celebrated the 167th anniversary or let us say, birthday of the Indian Railways as an organization. This post has been in the making good part of the past week. And so belated wishes to all, and especially to our fearless leader. 🙂

Yes, a lot has changed since that fateful date in 1853. The original Bori Bunder station was rebuilt in a much larger format. The construction started in 1878 by a railway company founded in London – Great Indian Peninsula Railway and it took 9 years for the work to complete on this magnificent Gothic style buiding. In 1888 It was inaugurated as, to honor the milestone of 50 years of the reign of Queent Victoria, the then monarch of England. The initials VT (for Victoria Terminus) are still in widespread use in the local parlance in Bombay. Then, more than a century later, in 1996, the then current state government in Maharashtra renamed this iconic heritage site as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, in the honor of the valiant Maratha leader and king Chhatrapati Shivaji, who established the Maratha Empire.

Ah but, I digress again. Let’s get back to the original thread. April 16th. The year is 1853. The first war of Independence (1857) is still four years hence. Time is 3.30 pm in the afternoon. A train waits on the Bori Bunder station – the boiler all steamed up, the smoke from the coal fires in the heart of the rising from the chimney of the locomotive, a band all ready to pom-pom, and a row of 21 cannons all set for the firing salute. The bands start to play. The 21 gun salute is initiated. There is a hurrah – approx 400 passengers on the train and an equal or more number on the platform. At 3.35, the crankshaft starts to chug, the train starts to move slowly, and picking up speed, slithers out of the station, all 14 carriages of it. The destination – a small town named Tanna, a distance of 21 miles north east from Bori Bunder. The train left at a fair clip of about 20 miles per hour, and completed the journey in just about one hour plus. And the history was recorded – that the first rail service in India, which carried passengers. Certainly a very significant red letter day in the history of India.

As I said, lot has changed. So has Tanna – it is now called Thane.

So, I did mention ‘passenger rail service’. Yes, the train tracks have been around in India since as early as 1835. Prior to the 1853 trip, all the train projects in India were related to haulage of construction material, timber and goods etc. Many of these earlier rail services were not even driven by locomotives, but in some places by horses, and even men. I garnered and edited the below summary from www.irfca.org which is the official website of the Indian Railways Fan Club – Ah yes we do have a fan club for railways – it was news to me too. 🙂

Total trackage in India is about 4000 miles.

Whew, and this is just the highlights from the first three decades of railway establishment activity in the country. Covering the entire history just in highlights will take probably 8 to 10 such posts. I will pause here and present some current statistics. By the way, after the partition, GIPR was reorganized and packaged as the Central Railway of the Indian Railways.

Currently, the Indian Railway system is the fourth largest in the world today, with over 68,000 km of route coverage, with running track length of 87,040 kms. The total trackage including yards, sidings etc. stands at 113,993 kms. It is the largest single employer in the country with over thirteen lac employees. In terms of passenger volumes, I had read in an article some years back, that at any given point in time, 1% of our country’s population is riding in trains. That, my friends, is a massive number. By that measure, I am sure the Indian Railway system is the largest in the world.

The most important highlight for the members of this blog is that this blog manages the Mechanical Workshop of North East Railways, in Gorakhpur. 🙂 🙂

Coming to the song presented with this post. A brief background. The idea about this song was shared with me, during my search for the song “Khud Jiyo Auron Ko Bhi Jeene Do” which had been requested by Nahm ji. In course of my search, as I was checking the Films Division sources, another input that I got was that there are two songs which were also produced by Films Division, relating to Indian Railways. And possibly these songs are also in the voice of Rafi Sb. I checked with other friends in my circle, especially the Rafi Sb specialists. They confirmed that they have heard about these two songs but the songs themselves have not been traced so far. Later, when Ahsaan Bhai (of Hapur) passed on to me the song that Nahm ji had requested, he confirmed that Films Division does list two documentaries about Indian Railways which possibly could contain these two songs. But the documentaries themselves are not available.

I then turned to my friends in the Railways itself. Of course, Atul ji is the first person I sent request to help trace these documentaries. And the next person I talked with is Shri KL Pandey ji, the retired additional member of Rail Board. Readers and friends would be more familiar with him as the person behind the monumental work he has done to identify the classical raag basis of Hindi film songs. To date, he has cataloged more than 18 thousand Hindi film songs with complete raag analysis. He referred to his network inside the rail ministry, and then quickly sent me the link to the web site of the Indian Railways Fan Club. This fan club has unearthed the original Films Division documentaries, and has published them on its web site.

About this song. It turns out to be in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor and not Rafi Sb. The songwriter and the music director is Prem Dhawan. It is a long song, almost 9 minutes in duration. I could not ascertain the date on this documentary. The Films Division archives page says the database is not available. My guess is that this documentary would have been made sometimes uin 1974-75 time frame.

The shutdown of the complete rail services is in progress currently, in step with the nationwide lockdown on account of the COVID-19 infection spread. Some parts of media have highlighted this as the first ever time that the railways have been shut down totally. However, this is not a true statement. Some parts of media have also recalled the one solitary occasion in the past, when a similar total shutdown had occurred.

In May of 1974, there was a total strike called by the coordination committee of all the trade unions of railway employees. The strike was led by the late George Fernandes, a senior leader of the Socialist party. That strike had lasted for 20 days from 8th to 27th May of 1974, that was the first and the biggest disruption of countrywide services of the railways. Never before, under any emergent circumstances had the complete railway system been shut down. I have memories of those hot days of the summer of 1974, when the rail service across the country had been shut down, and that was the major topic of discussion at home and in the newspapers. This documentary was most probably created just after this strike, so I guess it must have been in 1974 or 1975 at the latest.

A big salute to the entire Indian Railways – the lifeline of our country. That theme is highlighted in this song. The visuals are from more than four decades ago. But the intent and the message of this song remains unchanged. A rare and marathon song, Mahendra Kapoor at his typical best. Enjoy.

बनी चीजों को आग लगाते हैं
ये कौन हैं देश द्रोही जो
इसका सत्यानाश करें
आप भी हैं
और आप भी हैं
आप भी हैं
और आप भी हैं
मेरे भाइयो याद रहे
हर समय ये साथ निभाती है
रोज़मर्रा की चीजों को
यहाँ वहाँ पहुंचाती है
ये है वो गाड़ी
देश की गाड़ी
सबका साथ निभाती है

जब दुश्मन हमला करता है
जब दुश्मन हमला करता है
तो देश पे विपदा आती है
यही वो गाड़ी वीरों को
सीमा पर ले जाती है
जब ज़ख्मी भाई होते हैं
तो उनके काम ये आती है
ये है वो गाड़ी
देश की गाड़ी
सबका साथ निभाती है

ये पापी देखो कैसे हैं
जो जीवन हत्या करते हैं
ये पापी देखो कैसे हैं
जो जीवन हत्या करते हैं
इन्हीं की काली करतूतों से
लाखों भाई मरते हैं
मरने वाले चले गए
पर विपदा इन पर आती है
मरने वाले चले गए
पर विपदा इन पर आती है
ये है वो गाड़ी
देश की गाड़ी
सबका साथ निभाती है

लाखों लोग जो इसके ज़रिये
अपना पेट भी भरते हैं
रात और दिन की मज़दूरी से
बीवी बच्चे पलते हैं
इनकी सेवा सच्ची है
जो देश की सेवा करते हैं
इंजन गाड़ी लाइन हो डब्बा
लाखों रूपइए लगते हैं
इन पर खर्चा करने वाले
आप भी हैं
और आप भी हैं
आप भी हैं
और आप भी हैं
आप के खून पसीने से
जब देश की उन्नति होती है
देश की उन्नति होने से
खुशहाली देश में आती है
ये है वो गाड़ी
देश की गाड़ी
सबका साथ निभाती है

ये भी देखो माँ के लाल
जो देश का हाथ बटाते हैं
ये भी देखो माँ के लाल
जो देश का हाथ बटाते हैं
अपना खून भी देने में
ये कभी नहीं घबराते हैं
इनकी सेवा सच्ची है
जो देश के काम में आती है
ये है वो गाड़ी
देश की गाड़ी
सबका साथ निभाती है

काम भी कर लो
नाम भी कर लो
दुनिया से क्या ले जाना है
खाली हाथ आए थे
और खाली ॰ ॰ ॰
[॰॰॰]
॰ ॰ ॰ वाहे गुरु
और ईसा सबका साथी है

ये है वो गाड़ी
देश की गाड़ी
सबका साथ निभाती है
छोटा बड़ा हो
कोई भी कैसा
सबके काम ये आती है
ये है वो गाड़ी
देश की गाड़ी
सबका साथ निभाती है
उत्तर दक्षिण

“Aashiaana”(1974), not to be confused with “Aashiaana”(1952) was directed by Saiyyad Hassan for Dev Kala International, Bobay. This obscure movie had Sunil Kumar, Neetu Singh, Harindra Chattopadhyay, RameshDev, Habiba Rahman, Khalid Almas Safdar, Dunlop, Hyderabadi etc with guest appearances by Jayshree T, Gajanan Jaageerdaar, Ratnamala, Suhail and Roopesh Kumar.

The movie had three songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Aashiaana”(1974) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor. Neeraj is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hari-Arjun.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song which sounds like a cabarata dance song/ club dance song to me.

With this song, “Aashiaana”(1974) makes its debut in the blog.

Blog Day : 4226 Post No. : 15433

I was aware that today is the birth anniversary of Pran, but I was not aware that today is his 100th birth anniversary !

It was on this day 100 years ago that Pran (12 February 1920 – 12 July 2013) was born.

Pran was born in Lahore and he made his debut in films in Lahore in early 1940s. There, he soon graduated to lead roles. In “Khaandaan”(1942), he had acted opposite Noorjehaan. . After partition, he came to Bombay where he was a nobody and so he had to start from scratch there.

It was in Bombay that Pran began to get the roles of a villain and it waas in these roles that he made his mark. He started his stint in Bombay with “Ziddi”(1948). He played villains but no two roles of his were same. In every movie he brought something new to his acting. And his acting was so convincing that ordinary movie goers dreaded and dipised his roles. Very few people in India named their sons as Pran. That is the kind of impression he had created in the minds of movie goers. 🙂

In 1960s, his dark roles gradually started to become less dark, with doses of kindness and comedy in them and a time came when he became a character artist, beginning from “Upkaar”(1967). The distributors of “Upkaar”(1967) were very nervous, unsure how this new role of Pran would be received by the moviegoers who were so used to see him as a dreaded villain. Fortunately, the movie was a big hit and Praan’s role as Malang Chaacha was loved by moviegoers.

Pran had got to sing very few songs on screen as a villain, but he started to get songs as a character artist. And this process started with “Upkaar”(1967) itself. The song Kasme waade pyaar wafa turned out to be a much loved song, much to the relief of Kalkyanji Anandji, who were dreading that their composition would flop because it was to be picturised on Pran !

Subsequently, Pran has figured in quite a few songs in Hindi movies. And these songs became surprise hits. For instance, “Zanjeer”(1973) song Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi became the most popular song of the year in Binaca geetmala ! “Kasauti”(1974) song, Ham bolega to bologe ki bolta hai was my favourite song durings its time. Same was the case with the song Daru ki bottle me sahab paani bharta hai from “Majboor”(1974).

On the occasion of the 100th birth anniversary of Pran, here is a song from “Zindaadil”(1975). The song is sung by Lata, Shailendra Singh and Mahendra Kapoor. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a get together song. It is lip synced by Rishi Kapoor, Zaahira, Neetu singh and Pran.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala. Incidentally, he too shares his birthday with Pran. So we take this opportunity to wish him a happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. Today also happens to be the wedding aniversary of our regular Nitin Shah. We wish him and his better half on this occasion.

Quite a lively and appropriate song for the occasion it is.

Khushiyaan ban ke pehli baar
Aaj kayee barson mein
Paayal chhanke pehli baar
Huyee adhoori aasha poori
Tooti door ki doori
Tooti door ki doori
To lekar thumkaa naachoon
Aaj main tan ke pehli baar
Lekar thhumkaa naachoon
Aaj main tan ke pehli baar

Pehli baar

Khushiyaan ban ke pehli baar
Aaj kayee barson mein
Paayal chhanke pehli baar
Huyee adhoori aasha poori
Tooti door ki doori
Tooti door ki doori
Lekar thhumkaa naachoon
Aaj main tan ke pehli baar
Shaam suhaani aayi
Khushiyaan ban ke pehli baar

Jee chaahe main ho ke saudaayee
Lutaa doon khudaayee
Milaa hai mujhe pyaar

Jee chaahe main ho ke saudaayee
Lutaa doon khudaayee
Milaa hai mujhe pyaar

Raat aayi hai kismatwaali
Jalaao deewaali
Milaa hai qaraar
Milaa hai sansaar
Is man ki paawan dharti se
Phoot padaa hai pyaar
Phoot padaa hai pyaar

Pehli baar
Phool khile hain dekho
Mere man ke pehli baar
Phool khile hain dekho
Mere man ke pehli baar
Shaam suhaani aayi
Khushiyaan ban ke pehli baar

Khaata jaa peetaa jaa

Hey hey

Ho ho
Apnaa rang jamaata jaa
Ho deewaana tu
Hey hey

Mere jeewan ke gulshan mein
Aayi nayee bahaar

Pehli baar
Ek fauji kaa beta
Chalaa hai tan ke pehli baar
Ek fauji kaa beta
Chalaa hai tan ke pehli baar

Shaam suhaani aayi
Khushiyaan ban ke pehli baar

Dekho kaise khushi ke rang chhaaye
Dupatta udaa jaaye
Patang ban ke
Umang ban ke
Dekho kaise khushi ke rang chhaaye
Dupatta udaa jaaye
Patang ban ke
Umang ban ke
Main to ambar ki baahon mein jhooloon
Sitaaron ko chhoo loon
Kiran ban ke
Sapan ban ke
Aaj mere seene mein dhadkan
Meethhee kare pukaar
Meethhee kare pukaar
Pehli baar
Mere dil mein aajaa
Meraa ban ke pehli baar
Mere dil mein aajaa
Meraa ban ke pehli baar

Shaam suhaani aayi
Khushiyaan ban ke pehli baar
Aaj kayee barson mein
Paayal chhanke pehli baar

शाम सुहानी आई
खुशियाँ बन के पहली बार
शाम सुहानी आई
खुशियाँ बन के पहली बार
आज कई बरसों में
पायल छनके पहली बार
हुयी अधूरी आशा पूरी
टूटी दूर कि दूरी
टूटी दूर कि दूरी
तो लेकर ठुमका नाचूँ
आज मैं तन के पहली बार
तो लेकर ठुमका नाचूँ
आज मैं तन के पहली बार

पहली बार
शाम सुहानी आई
खुशियाँ बन के पहली बार
आज कई बरसों में
पायल छनके पहली बार
हुयी अधूरी आशा पूरी
टूटी दूर कि दूरी
टूटी दूर कि दूरी
लेकर ठुमका नाचूँ
आज मैं तन के पहली बार
शाम सुहानी आई
खुशियाँ बन के पहली बार

जी चाहे मैं हो के सौदाई
लुटा दूं खुदाई
मिला है मुझे प्यार
मिला है बेशुमार
जी चाहे मैं हो के सौदाई
लुटा दूं खुदाई
मिला है मुझे प्यार
मिला है बेशुमार
रात आयी है किस्मतवाली
जलाओ दीवाली
मिला है करार
मिला है संसार
इस मन की पावन धरती से
फूट पडा है प्यार
फूट पडा है प्यार

पहली बार
फूल खिले है देखो
मेरे मन के पहली बार
फूल खिले है देखो
मेरे मन के पहली बार
शाम सुहानी आई
खुशियाँ बन के पहली बार

खाता जा पीता जा
भर पैमाना तू
हे हे
खाता जा पीता जा
भर पैमाना तू
हो हो
अपना रंग जमाता जा
हो दीवाना तू
हे हे
मस्ती में लहराता जा
बन मस्ताना तू
अपना आज बनाता जा
ये ज़माना तू
मेरे जीवन के गुलशन में
आयी नयी बहार
आयी नयी बहार

पहली बार
एक फौजी का बेटा
चला है तन के पहली बार
एक फौजी का बेटा
चला है तन के पहली बार

शाम सुहानी आई
खुशियाँ बन के पहली बार

देखो कैसे ख़ुशी के रंग छाये
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाए
पतंग बन के
उमंग बन के
देखो कैसे ख़ुशी के रंग छाये
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाए
पतंग बन के
उमंग बन के
मैं तो अम्बर कि बाहों में झूलूँ
सितारों को छू लूं
किरण बन के
सपन बन के
आज मेरे सीने में धड़कन
मीठी करे पुकार
मीठी करे पुकार
पहली बार
मेरे दिल में आजा
मेरा बन के पहली बार
मेरे दिल में आजा
मेरा बन के पहली बार

शाम सुहानी आई
खुशियाँ बन के पहली बार
आज कई बरसों में
पायल छनके पहली बार

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Aaj ki aawaaz
Aaj ki aawaaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Zindagi kitni
Behifaazat hai
Kal bhi aayegaa
Kya jamaanat hai
Din pareshan hai raat hai hairaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Dar ke saaye mein
Gar jawaan hongi
Ye nayee naslen kal kahan hongi
Hosh me aa ja ab to aye nadaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Kya nagar hai ye
Kaisi basti hai
Ya to mitti se jaan sasti hai
Zindagi mushkil maut hai aasaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Dekh ghar aangan loot nahi jaayen
Pyaar ke rishtey chhut nahi jaayen
Kal bachane ka aaj hi kar dhyaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz
