Blog Day : 4017 Post No. : 15124

The years roll by – time stops for no one.

And, just like that, it is now 7 years since that day in 2012.

I still remember that day very well – I first got the news on Facebook.

One of my friends had posted “vaada tera vaada”, saying “RIP Rajesh Khanna”.

It shook me – I immediately checked Twitter for validation. (Now Twitter is known to post fake death news from time to time. Not so long ago, they had posted news of Mumtaz’s death – thankfully, fake.) But I wanted a second source.

Sadly, and I realized this very soon with a sinking feeling, the news on 18th July 2012 was not fake. Rajesh Khanna (or Kaka, as he was more affectionately known) HAD passed away. For the past year, he had been suffering from cancer – and the cancer had finally won.

I felt miserable that day. Not that I didn’t know he was suffering from cancer, but I never expected him to go when he did.

That day my Facebook status was
Kya samjhega ye aalam koi
Badaa bhaari hai dil ye mera
Ki le gaye ho saath safar pe tumhaare
Tukda jo kabhi tha dil ye mera

Rubbish poetry, I know – but hey, it did reflect my mood.

Those were the times when I’d seek refuge in my blog. I’d just dump my thoughts onto my blog, for my own sake. It was my way of releasing my feelings, not suppressing them within.

That day too I went to my blog, and wrote a piece for Rajesh Khanna. A personal piece – well, about as personal a piece that one can write about someone he has never met, someone whose many character flaws one acknowledges, and yet someone who was a big part of one’s childhood.

I’ve written about Kaka several times here, and I don’t want to bore readers by repeating stuff.

I’ll just say a few things, and then move on to the song.

Firstly, most times when I discuss Kaka with others (I don’t do much of this anymore), I get the following reactions.
Firstly, a criticism of his acting – mostly his set mannerisms, and his hamming.
Secondly, criticism about him as a person.

I’ve noticed that people who dislike Kaka, tend to dislike him rather intensely. 🙂 On one, or both, of the above counts.

And, I must admit, they would not be wrong.

The first point first.

Without doubt, Kaka’s acting lost its freshness after a few years – and was a big reason for his decline. His superstar success lasted only a few years. During this period, he acted in a whole lot of films. Both he, and his producers, wanted to cash in on his name. Just his name used to be enough to sell a film. Sure, the films were all successful – Kaka holds the record for maximum number of consecutive hits.

But over-exposure comes with its risks. Especially when you’re boxed into a method of acting, expected to conform to set mannerisms, and a set dialogue delivery style. Yes, they made you successful, but style wears out after a while. Kaka’s mannerisms did become an issue. That the storylines also were beginning to get thin, did not help.

Much later in his career, we got to see a different Rajesh Khanna. Not THE superstar anymore, he could afford to act differently, in different roles. Let’s not forget he got his break in films by winning an acting contest, so he couldn’t have been that bad an actor. 🙂

Now, to the second point.

Again, I have to agree. It’s no secret that Kaka allowed success to get to his head. His unprofessional, and possibly even mean, behaviour with colleagues and others, left a lot of people bitter. No doubt many would have been happy to see him go down. A point made even more stark when compared with the upcoming star, Amitabh Bachchan, who was the model professional actor, punctual and polite.

I will not defend Kaka on this front at all. Much later in life, he did realize this himself.

All I will say is, every one of us has failings. Maybe if Kaka’s success had been more gradual, he’d have been a different person. Failure teaches us much more than success – Amitabh had a string of failures before becoming a superstar.

One person’s life is often a lesson for another. Just as people can tell aspiring youngsters “Look at Amitabh – how he struggled early in his career, but his perseverance and professionalism made him a superstar”, they can also say “Look at Rajesh Khanna – how he let success get to his head at a young age, and destroyed his career and relationships”.

One can learn from both.

To me, while I accept these criticisms, I will always remember, and thank, Rajesh Khanna for giving me many wonderful memories in my childhood.

That tilt of the head, that smile, that kurta, that dialogue delivery – today people might mock all of this, but in those days, these are what millions swooned over. That “Pushpa, I hate tears” line is still one of the best-known lines in Hindi cinema.

His films of that era made me feel good when I saw them in the early 70s. Later, when I saw them again, I’d still smile at “rona kabhi nahin rona”, “yahaan wahaan saare”, “nainon mein nindiya hai”, “ye shaam mastaani” and a whole lot of other songs. They’d bring back memories of my childhood.

Like one of my best friends (in class I) would always sing “pyaar deewana hota hai” from Kati Patang. It was his favourite song. I liked it a lot too, but I’d counter him with “ye shaam mastaani”. I know it sounds silly, but these are not just songs for me – they have memories attached to them. Like the incident attached to “o mere dil ke chain” – I’ve discussed the incident here earlier.

And that’s the thing. Each person’s memories are different, and therefore connect with someone is different. And while I acknowledge all Kaka’s failings, I also want to give him back a little bit of that love that I got from watching his films during my childhood.

That’s also the reason for this post. I haven’t written for a while now, but Avinashji requested me to write a post for this occasion. I was hesitant, since I sincerely believe I’ve lost my writing ability. I even told Avinashji “I can’t write anything longer than a tweet now” :-). But he was kind enough to share with me a whole lot of Kaka songs not posted yet, so I could easily pick one.

Now to the song.

Initially I thought of posting a sad song, considering it is on Kaka’s death anniversary. But then I thought again.

What I’d like to remember most of Kaka is the joy I got from watching his films, from before his decline. I think, from up there, he’d also probably like most people to remember him for those films.

So today’s song is from one of his early films – Bandhan (1969). I remember seeing this film long ago, though I don’t remember the story now.

By the way, it is exactly 50 years since this film was released. 1969 was a milestone year for Kaka – this was the year he became a superstar with Aradhana. And Do Raaste was a huge hit too.

The song “jaana hai to jao” shows early glimpses of the superstar-to-be. One can see some of those mannerisms that would become his hallmark in the coming years. And it is always fun to see Kaka and Mumtaz together, even if this was a less-known film than their more famous films to come.

The song is in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhosle. Not surprising that Mahendra Kapoor was used, considering music is by Kalyanji-Anandji. The MK-KA combo had a huge hit with Upkar (1967), so KA were happy to use MK again. And at that time, Rajesh Khanna was “just another hero”. Kishore Kumar had not yet become his voice. In fact, in this film, even Mukesh sings a happy song for Rajesh Khanna. 🙂

I hope you like the song.

Thanks for the memories, Kaka.

Whatever the world might say about you, remember, when it comes to romance in film,

“tere hi to sar pe mohabbat ka taaj hai”.

If someone pops up the name Jethalal, and asks for an identification, I am sure you will be puzzled to start with. Yes, surely a strange name, that many of the folks interested in Hindi films, will not be familiar with. This name belongs to the dear and popular actor of Hindi films – Sanjeev Kumar. His full real name was Harihar Jethalal Jariwala. Ah yes, now very familiar, right? 🙂

Remembering Sanjeev Kumar on the anniversary of his birth today. Had he been alive, he would have been 81 years old, having been born in the year 1938.

Sanjeev Kumar – an out and out product of stage and theatre, started his acting career at a very young age with IPTA (Indian People’s Theatre Association) and later continued with Indian National Theatre. He was born in Surat. The family moved to Bombay when he was young. After attending a training program at a local acting school, he joined the theatre while still in his late teens.

From the theatre, the progression to films was but natural for a performer as talented as he was. His first appearance was in the film ‘Hum Hindustani’ of 1960, in which he played a very small role. His first film as a hero was ‘Nishaan’ in 1965. For a few years his assignments were confined to C grade stunt and fantasy films. Then he 1968, he graduated into A grade cinema, with a sizeable role the 1968 film ‘Sunghursh’, alongside the likes of Dilip Kumar, Balraj Sahni, Iftekhar, Ulhas and Jayant. This year became a turning point in his career – ‘Raja Aur Runk’ became a runaway success, and ‘Anokhi Raat’ became the debut film of our blog. 🙂

The most powerful thing about Sanjeev Kumar’s performances has been that he never allowed himself to be typecast into any straitjacket. Whatever may have been the stage of his career, he willy nilly took such diverse variety of roles, regardless of the age and the temper of the character. When he was just 22, he played the role of a 60 year old in a stage play, father of 6 children. Positive or negative, he was simply concerned with a sincere portrayal. In ‘Anokhi Raat’ he plays the role of a dacoit. His comic roles are unforgettable – ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’, ‘Pati Patni Aur Who’, ‘Manchali’, ‘Angoor’, ‘Namkeen’, ‘Manoranjan’ . . . you name it. The diversity and the versatility of his performances is what brought the audiences into the cinema halls, just to see his roles. And for a surprising change, the viewing public never rejected him for his variety,

Today’s song is from the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’. From the era when he was still in the C grade stunt and crime thrillers, ‘Gunehgaar’ is the film in which he plays the role of an upright police inspector. His love interest is Kumkum, who later turns out to be the daughter of Sheikh Mukhtar, a wanted gangster. The film takes certain interesting and predictable turns, given the specifics of the relationships, and it ends with note of ‘All Is Well, That Ends Well’.

The film is produced under the banner of Simla Productions, and is directed by R Thakar. The cast of actors includes Sheikh Mukhtar, Sanjeev Kumar, Kumkum, Bhagwan, Madan Puri, Uma Dutt, Neelam, Nandini, Tuntun, Sulochana Chatterjee, Lakshmi Chhaya, Kundan, Dilip Dutt, and Tiwari.

The film has six songs, one of which – “Aankhen Pyaasi Lab Hain Pyaase” is already showcased here on our blog. The songwriting credits are shared equally between Akhtar Romani and Naqsh Lyallpuri. This song is from the pen of Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music direction is by Vedpal.

The song comes in at the start of the romantic relationship between Sanjeev Kumar and Kumkum – it is that initial getting to know each other type of song, performed partly on a beach and partly in a garden. Singing voices are Mahendra Kapoor and Usha Mangeshkar. A liltling and a very hummable song. Listen and enjoy.

sajde mein sar jhuka diya
nisar mein us husn ke
jis ne khuda bhula diya

Blog Day :

4000 Post No. : 15101 Movie Count :

Missing Films of 1960s – 112
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Cricket is a distraction par excellence. 🙂  I am sure most of us bandwagoneers will agree.

That we are approaching the 151st century of songs on the blog, was being exchanged between Atul ji and myself for quite some days now. But the fact that we are also approaching the completion of the 4th millennium of no. of days of existence, almost went completely un-noticed by either of us. It was like just three or four days ago, that the tubelight came on in my mind. I immediately wrote to Atul ji. And equally immediately we agreed that we are on a threshold milestone that is more significant than the 151st century of songs.

Pondering on how to impress the importance of this event, we went back and forth with a couple of ideas. Of course, the idea that we should combine the 4th mega-day with the 151st C, was the immediate conclusion. And the century song was then scheduled for 1st July, and we decided to pace out the required interim posts so that we accomplish this combination.

Now we had already identified the century song, and Atul ji was already in preparation with the environment friendly post. The song – I had already suggested to Atul ji, and we had agreed to bring on “Main Mar Gai Garmi Se” as the crucial link in this scheme to bring home the message of global warming and connect it to the environment friendliness objective. But then Atul ji came up with a counter thought. The song itself is a June song, and we will be overstepping into July if we post it on the 4,000th day. Now what to do? After a brief exchange, we agreed that we will post this song on 30th June, on the 3,999th day and then figure out another special for 1st July. The decision then also put us in a scramble, because then we had four more posts to make this June song hit the date of 30th June. So then both of us weighed in, in favor of making these four posts (plus the century post, making it five) happen on Sunday, split as three posts by me and two by Atul ji.

I prepared the current latest post by Arun ji, and scheduled it for early morning release on Sunday. And then I worked the afternoon and evening to make two more posts, adding into two of my ongoing series – one for the repeat songs and one for the sleepless nights.

And then, of course we know what transpired on Sunday. India lost by 30 runs against England – personally I believe it could have been done, but then that is me, commenting, watching from thousands of miles away. In short, cricket otherwise consumed the attention and our combined target of 5 posts slipped by 2.

So in the morning, I get an email from Atul ji. Quite matter of fact indeed, that he was not able to make any posts yesterday, and that although it is July now, but the garmi still justifies the song, and that we are happy we combine 4M + 151C today. So the following is what I wrote back to him reassuringly –

Yes, in our part of the country, where monsoons have not yet arrived, the heat is sweltering and quite intense. The song is still very appropriate.

And btw, it is still June in the US. It will be June in Midway Islands, Samoa till 4.30 pm (IST) today. And overall, the month of June 2019 will remain on this planet till 5.30 (IST) pm, when finally midnight crosses over the International Date Line. :D) :D)

Atul ji agreed. If you notice the time of posting of the 151C song – it is 4.50 PM (IST). We made it well within the transmogrified target, with 40 minutes to spare. Meaning that the month of June was still alive on this planet when 151C got posted. The final edge of the midnight crossed over the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean 40 minutes after the posting, finally closing the month of June 2019 from everywhere on earth. Talk about close shaves. 😀 😀

But another notable mention still needs to be made.  In this exchange, Atul ji also expressed that he was not feeling very good about the amount of significance that he wants to bring in to this milestone of 4M days. He said it is not feeling weighty enough. So then I suggested that let us follow this 151C post with another post that brings is one more very significant song, and celebration, to add to the 4M festivities. And that I have the very thing planned for the 151C+1 post in any case, to be brought on to blog on 2nd July. So let me explain. Maybe some of you may have noticed. Whenever we reach a century post milestone, that milestone stays on for that entire day. Meaning we don’t follow up with any other post that day, to ensure that the century celebration stays on for at least one full day. When I explained the content I had planned for this 151C+1 post, he readily agreed to make an exception to this convention of keeping the day free after publishing a century post.

So excuse me for the long drawn intro – I believe the prelude circumstances were quite interesting enough to merit this story being told. 🙂 🙂

So what is special about this post – the 112th in the series of ‘Missing Films of 1960s?

Two reasons. Firstly, based on all the research and explorations that I have been able to make regarding the missing films list of 1960s that Ben Katie prepared as my homework, and based on all the material that I have been able to trace and ferret out, today’s post is the grand finale, of this series. Meaning that, given everything that I have been able to lay my hands on, this is truly the last film that can be presented in this series. So we have a marathon series of 112 episodes, lasting for 3 years, 9 months and 2 days, coming to a close today.

And secondly, the rarity of the song that is being presented today. The quality of rarity of this song in my opinion, actually goes beyond the rarest of the rare. Today’s song, for whatever it is worth, comes into play, where everyone related to Hindi film music has been resigned to the fact that this film, ‘Hawa Mahal’ of 1962 – it does not have any, and I mean ANY, surviving songs available. In a situation where the absence of songs is an established and accepted fact, when one is able to trace out something, even a partial song, that is indeed a matter of a resounding celebration. A little later in this post, I will explain the how this came about.

Let us quickly get over with the numbers first. Ben Katie started work on compiling the list of missing films from 1960s (1961-1970) by comparing the listing in GK Vol 4 and the list of songs posted on our blog. That was in November of 2014. She sent out the first draft listing to myself, Arun ji and the rest of the team for a quick review and update cycle. The review and update part did happen, but the ‘quick’ part did not. 🙂 Anyways, after setting up, reviewing and inserting special remarks for some films as required, we came up with the following numbers,

Total listed as released films               >>          942

No. of films present on blog                 >>          695
(at the time of finalizing the list)

No. of films still to be posted               >>          247
(at the time of finalizing the list)

So 247 was the count to be tackled, when I started working on this series. The first episode was aired on 30th Sep, 2015, and the movie presented in that first episode is ‘Muraad’ of 1961. Initially, I tried to stick to the sequence in which these films appear in the Geet Kosh. But not strictly all the way through – quite a few times I would break the sequence, based on availability issues or demands of some special event such as anniversaries etc.

As is apparent from the episode number, I have been able to bring onboard 112 films (including today’s ‘Hawa Mahal’). The following table gives the details of this analysis, by year within this decade.

 Totals 942 695 247 112 56 79

The first three columns (after the year column) give the status as of the compilation and analysis done by Ben Katie, at the beginning of this exercise, i.e. November of 2014. The next two columns give the data on postings for the particular year, after this exercise is set in motion. Interesting to note that at total of 56 songs of this decade got posted on the blog, outside of this series, during the same period. The last column gives the no. of films which are not yet available, and I mean, not available from any source, period. As far as my search of the past almost four years reveals, songs of these films are not available anywhere in public domain. I could be wrong, and oh boy, I will be the happiest person to be told that I am wrong 🙂 .

As per the last column, we are still short by 79 films from this decade. I am giving below the list of films that have remained untraceable even after continued effort of almost 4 years. The listing is by year in the decade.

The request for all readers and friends is to please check the above list. In case there is any information available about the songs of any of these 79 films, please, please, please share it with us.

So having dealt with the numbers and having told the story of pending films, let me now come to the song being presented today.  The film ‘Hawa Mahal’ of 1962 is produced by Ramesh Vyas, under the banner of Navkala Niketan, Bombay and is directed by BJ Patel. The main cast of actors is listed as Ranjan, Helen, Tiwari, Baboo Raje, Ramavtar, Bela Bose, Jugnu, Shyam, and Prakash amongst others.

There are six songs listed in the Geet Kosh. The name of lyricist is not given. Also, the names of the singers are not listed. Music direction is by Avinash Vyas. The singing voices used in this film are of Asha Bhosle and Mahendra Kapoor, however assignment to individual songs is not indicated.

Now coming to the mystery of songs of this film. In my search for the songs of this film, I could establish one thing. No gramophone records of the songs of this film are available anywhere. The general response from the premier collectors is that no 78 rpm records of this film were created. I was quite disappointed. With names like Helen and Bela Bose in the cast of actors, the film being of the ‘jaadugar saiyyaan’ types abracadabra of magic and fantasy, the music of Avinash Vyas, the singing voices identified – I was eagerly expecting some wonderful songs to be harvested from a film like this. But my search kept turning up a naught wherever I would be inquiring.

Then maybe three or so years ago, I espied a VCD release of this film with a VCD/DVD dealer in Chandni Chowk in Delhi. I just pounced at it, and bought it. Getting home, with an anxious expectation, I put on my laptop to play. I could not believe my eyes. The film runs its complete length, and NOT A SINGLE SONG is existing in the film. I was devastated. I ran the film again – maybe I had dozed off when the songs were playing. But no, even the second more careful screening did not turn up any songs. I ran the disc a third time, and carefully looked at sequence of scenes. And sure enough, I was able to detect three or four places, where the narrative jumps, and the scene makes up as if there would have been a song here. The realization struck me – all the songs had been edited out of the film. I was furious, cursing the VCD manufacturer’s apathy towards lovers of music, trying to cut down run time of the film to fit on the disk, वगैरह, वगैरह.

I tried once again – bought another disc, but still no songs. Now I was obsessed in trying to get to the source material of this film – the VHS tapes. In my search for the same, in India, as well as outside India, I was successful in procuring three different copies of the VHS tapes of this film from different sources. Imagine my horror, when I found that even the VHS tapes were bereft of any songs.

I was confused, angry and anxious. I started talking to my collector friends, asking them if they had any information on why such a fate had befallen this film. No one had any clue. The Geet Kosh does not carry any additional footnotes, remarks or corrigenda about this film. I was in total despair. Six songs listed, the film is available, and not one song is traceable.

The Geet Kosh lists only three actors – Ranjan, Helen and Tiwari. Just came to my mind, and I carefully viewed the credits at the beginning to get more complete information. One thing struck me as very peculiar. The name of the MD is given, names of two playback singers are given. But there is no name listed for the songwriter. I carefully checked it twice – sure enough the name of the lyricist is not in the credits. My mind then surmised this possibility that before the release of this film, some trouble must have brewed between the producer and the songwriter. No settlement could be reached through mediation, and the songwriter probably took the legal recourse, and got an order from the courts to disallow use of the songs written by him, in the film. The producer must have been forced to give up the rights to the songs. The same got deleted from the film, and as well, no gramophone records were manufactured. And the producer then also deleted the reference to the songwriter’s name in the credits. All well for them, but the music lovers have lost an unheard treasure.

Some month ago, for no reason, I picked up this disc, and started viewing it, simply as timepass, and to get the hang of the storyline. There is an evil magician living at the bottom of the ocean. He has fairies and mermaids as his attendants. He is collecting human skulls – when he will get to 100, he will achieve power to conquer the three worlds. Helen is one of the fairies that lures unsuspecting ‘aadam jaat’ male humans with her charm, and once entrapped, they are tied up and taken to the bottom of the ocean. One day, she lays a trap, and who would walk in but the hero of the film – Ranjan. She promptly falls in love with him, and sets him free, does not take him to her magician master. The news spreads in the underwater world, and the magician imprisons her. Her human beloved gets to know the story, and with his friends, goes down to free Helen. There is standard stuff of fights, fist fights and sword fights which seem to go on and on and on. There is a spaceship which is shaped like a palace – ‘Hawa Mahal’ for you. Ranjan defeats the magician and escapes from the underwater world in this spaceship, with Helen, and his friends. A happy ending for all. Lot of magic stuff happens throughout the film.

This time around, I watched this film in its entirety, right up to ‘THE END’. And that is where the magic happened. I discovered a partial song, right at the end of the film. It seems when the editor spliced out the songs from the main body of the film, he simply forgot that one partial song has been used in the closing minutes of the film. The discovery flabbergasted me – at least now we have one sampler from this film.

The singing voice is Mahendra Kapoor. The clip is a segment of the song, just over a minute in length. But goodness what a wonderful melody this turns out to be. One can only imagine what may have been the quality of songs if this is a representative sample. Wonderful, simply wonderful.

So then I upload this one minute clip, containing one complete stanza, and make for this post. This discovery is no less than any other rarest of rare songs. The world of collectors had given up on this film and its songs. But then we now have one half song, discovered quite by accident, giving a flavor of what could have been.

And with this startling discovery, I suspend further publications in this series. I say suspend, because I want to leave the door open for the possibility that any of the remaining 79 films of this decade, may turn up, only God knows where and when.

The wait will never end.

 

Song – Taaron Bhari Raat Hai  (Hawa Mahal) (1962) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

nai nai manzil hai
naya naya geet hai
poori hui aarzoo
mann ka mila meet hai
miley aaj humsafar
kal ki hai kya khabar
miley aaj humsafar
kal ki hai kya khabar
palken jhuka ke keh de
mann mein kya baat hai

taaron bhari raat hai
ghunghat mein chaand hai
akhiyaan mila ke keh de
mann mein kya baat hai. . .
taaron bhari raat hai

नई नई मंज़िल है
नया नया गीत है
पूरी हुई आरज़ू
मन का मिला मीत है
मिले आज हमसफर
कल की है क्या खबर
मिले आज हमसफर
कल की है क्या खबर
पलकें झुका के कह दे
मन में जो बात है

तारों भरी रात है
घूँघट में चाँद है
अखियाँ मिला के कह दे
मन में क्या बात है॰ ॰ ॰
तारों भरी रात है

(Cricket related memories & statistics #1)

During the 15k celebrations on our blog, our beloved Rajaji in his post – ‘Dil To Maane Naa, while congratulating all and wishing that this ‘musical journey’ just goes on and on … mentioned about the next target ‘15921’…!!! Now everyone was thinking of this ‘15921’? But it took Rajaji himself to give some hint and then it was disclosed to everyone. The figure was related to ‘Cricket Statistics’.

At that time, I had decided an article but as I progressed with the selection of the song and finally getting delayed with the article, I decided to do two articles first about the statistics part of my journey on the blog and the second one about my cricket related memories. So, here is the first article being posted today…

The reason for Rajaji’s mentioning of 15921 was Sachin’s runs scored in test cricket and after 15k we should look forward to this new target. This post of mine is too related to statistics but not of cricket though given by the Cricket World Cup around, statistics do also trigger some beautiful memories. However here I am looking for my own statistics on the blog and taking a look on how it has been for me so far on the blog.

My first lyrics contribution ‘Pyaar Ka Badlaa Mujhe Dekho Kaisa Milaa’ was posted on the blog on 13.09.2012 which was 1518th day for the blog and this was the 6633rd post on the blog. I tried my first article for the blog in Feb’2013 and it was posted on 26.02.2013.  This was 1684th day for the blog and this post was the 7565th post. (The song covered in this post was ‘Sang Mere Nikley Thhe Saajan’ from ‘Phir Wahi Raat (1980).

After that it took me 752 days to reach my twenty-fifth post on 20.03.2015 – ‘Na Koi Paisa Na Ilm Banaao Bambai Mein Film and that was 2436th day for the blog. It was the 10962nd post on the blog.

I feel very happy on my ‘quarter century’ and it reminded me of my favourite commentator Sushil Doshi’s words – “aur isi ke saath ye (Dilip Vengsarkar ki) quarter century poori”. . . (I don’t know why but I mostly remember ‘quarter century’ with Sushil Doshi’s commentary is for Dilip Vengsarkar. May be because whenever Vengsarkar was coming to bat he would easily score his first twenty-five runs very quickly 🙂 .

After that I was slowly getting into regular writing of articles for the blog. So, I reached my fiftieth post on 05.09.2015 with – ‘Krishna Krishna Bolo Krishna which was 2604th day and 11385th post for the blog. I entered the nineties on 31.07.2016 and it was 12280th post on the blog and the blog had become 2935 days older then.

Nineties mein aane ke baad, while I was eager to get to my first hundred, on the other side I was constantly remembering Chetan Chauhan one of my most favourite cricketer who never reach a hundred in test cricket, though me and many of friends were always praying for him, and always sincerely wished that he should get a hundred on his name. Well, it took me eighty-two days to reach from ninety to hundred. This was on 21.10.2016, and the song covered was ‘Bade Dinon Mein Khushi Ka Din Aaya’ (very appropriately though) and it was 3017th day for the blog, 12475th post of the blog.

Cricket mein century banaane ke baad jitni khushi ek batsman ko hoti hogi utni hi khushi mujhe bhi huyi 🙂 . By the time I completed my hundred posts on the blog, in the other category that is ‘lyrics contribution’ I had already scored over three hundred. And, since I always think myself an all-rounder (or a good all-rounder at least (not necessarily in cricket)) I was reminded of the many great achievers who scored a ‘hundred’ in both batting and bowling or bowling and batting in test cricket (or one day internationals too).

So, I was very happy on my ‘double’ achievement and it reminded me the doubles by the top famous all-rounders in test cricket. For me it was always of Kapil Dev.

In this process I had also completed a hundred in ‘Devnagri Script’ category and so I was the first to have scored a ‘hundred’ in the three (main) categoris on the blog. After that Sudhir ji reached a hundred in the ‘lyrics contribution’ category and that was a ‘Senior’s entry’ to this ‘triple’s club’ 🙂 .

My one hundred and fiftieth post came on the 3545th day of the blog with this song – ‘Jin Khoja Tin Paayiyaan’ – on 02.04.2018, the post number being 14228th.

Reaching 175 did reminded me of Kapil Dev’s 175 against Zimbabwe, how can anyone forget that? I remember we had gone to the nearby city for some work and when I was heading to my home in the colony few of my friends told me about the score of Indian batting which was very shocking for me. As I reached home Kapil Dev was already on the crease, so what I do was to take the transistor with me in the ground- so that I can concentrate alone (and may be the transmission was not clear inside home, I don’t remember it fully now) near my home where we use to play cricket to listen the commentary there because the match was already very tense. But as Kapil Dev started hitting the ball to each corner of the ground the excitement was on the top and the rest, we all know is a history now.

My first lyrics contribution was the 6633rd post on the blog. And today as I share this post on this 3996th day for the blog, this is the 15091st post on the blog.

Before I joined the blog, the blog had 340 songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi already covered on the blog and the today’s song is Sahir Saab’s 623rd song on the blog. In between I had also completed a century of my contribution for Sahir Ludhianvi songs on 27.03.2015, with the song “Teri Karam Kahaani Teri Aatma Bhi Jaane“,  on the 2443rd day for the blog, and so far I think have been successful in contributing around 130 songs of Sahir Saab. May be the final tally will cross 150 if everything goes well. The journey is on!!! 🙂

In between I had an opportunity to share a long song six-part song – “Sambhaalo Ae Watan Waalon Watan Apna Sambhaalo“, and I think I can take it as the highest score in an innings in any type of contribution here (lyrics and lyrics in Devnagri script) except the write up/post, and will always remind of the highest score in test cricket which is 400* not out by Brian Lara. 🙂

On the way I do secretly completed my fourth hundred in ‘lyrics contribution’ (like the third one), however nowadays in this ‘age of technology’ the secrets cannot be hold for too longer and when I was silently moving towards another ‘achievement’, which I thought would also pass on secretly, there were already ‘some signals’ asking me about it and I realized that ‘ab raaz chhupaana mushqil hai’. . . 😉

For today’s post too I have selected a song penned by Sahir Saab and composed to music by Ravindra Jain ji. This movie ‘Ham Tere Aashiq Hain’ (1979) was the first collaboration of Sahir Ludhianvi and Ravindra Jain the other being ‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu’ in 1980. All songs for ‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu’ have already been covered on the blog.

Today we get introduced to the film ‘Hum Tere Aashiq Hain’ from 1979.

‘Hum Tere Aashiq Hain’ was directed by Prem Sagar for his home production Prem Sagar Films, Bombay and under the banner of Sagar Art Enterprises. It was presented by Ramanand Sagar.

It had Jeetendra, Hema Malini, Amjad Khan, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Om Shivpuri, Sujit Kumar, Sheetal, Keshto Mukherjee, Arvind Trivedi, Ram Sethi, Mac Mohan, Shammi, Birbal, Jankidas, Paro, Aashoo, Shobhna Shah, Madhu Shah, Shanti, Aasha, Nirmal Kumar, Chander Mohan Khanna, Dhawan, and Ramlal. Tom Alter makes a guest appearance in this movie.

Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Kamleshwar and Ramanand Sagar. Suhrid Kar, CL Kavish and Kulwant Jaani were writers for additional screenplay and dialogues. Script and scenario for this movie was written by KK Shukla. Editing of this movie was done by Lachmandass. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.11.1979.

This movie had six songs all written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Ravindra Jain. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Mahendra Kapoor gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

For the preparation of this post I had requested Atul ji for the records and I can say here that the one going through this details maintained by Atul ji can only realize the efforts put by him and by Sudhir ji too in recording of the statistics on the blog and its retrieval whenever they want to have it for some special occasion (may be some auto ‘alerts’). I salute both of them!!!

Finally remembering all the statisticians in Indian Cricket and paying our tributes to their great works let us enjoy the today’s songs. They may be the first one to know of all the approaching milestones and records like our Atul ji or Sudhir ji (by the way I remember Sudhir Vaidya as a famous statistician in Indian Cricket history) and they all may be first one to know all the raaz’s which the general public may not be aware unless disclosed or made public 🙂 , and may be in other fields of our society we have some secrets/mystery which were never disclosed/solved. . .

And since I have not watched this movie I cannot say and disclose the ‘hidden’ raaz’s of this movie, except this song 😉

However, it seems to be an interesting movie to watch. For now let us enjoy this beautiful song.

Blog Day : 3955 Post No. : 15031

“Balidaan”(1971) was produced by Arun Verma and directed by Ravi Tandon. This movie had Manoj Kumar, Saira Banu, Dev Kumar, Anwar Hussan, Bindu, Manmohan etc in it.

This obscure movie had six songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the blog. That one song was discussed nine years ago, viz on 22 august 2010 by Raja.

I was not aware of the movie, but it turned out that Ava, our knowldegeable regular was not only aware of the movie, she also pointed out that Ravi Tandon (father of Raveena Tandon) made his debut as a director with this movie.

Now, nine years later, here is the second song from “Balidaan”(1971) to appear in the blog. This song is a dance song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle, with a few lines by Mahendra Kapoor. I am unable to tell who is the female dancer lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. She vaguely resembles Bindu, but I cannot be sure. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. Manoj Kumar lip syncs in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice in the picturisation of this dance song. There are many others in the picturisation. I can identify Manmohan among them.

Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

I am unable to get a couple of worrds right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Haay haay re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui(Balidaan)(1971) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

koi meri kalaai mein kangana fansa gaya
ungli mein pyar se koi chhalla chadha gaya
koi to meri baahon se aake lipat gaya
zulfon ko chhed chhed ke jhumka palat gaya
oye ?? dena haay
?? dena
main tere gale lag lag baar baar royi
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

masti se bhari teri ye naadaan jawaani
sab jaante huye bhi ye anjaan jawaani
duniya ki nigaahon mein ye toofaan jawaani
ye teri zindagi ka imtihaan jawaani
o jawaan gori haaye
o jawaan gori
ari aaj tere sab kal tera nahin koi

haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
haay
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

“Insaaf Ka Taraazu”(1980) was produced and directed by B R Chopra for B R Films, Bombay. This movie was inspired from an American movie called “Lipstick” (1976). The movie was a rape and revenge movie. Many people who thronged to watch “Insaaf Ka Taraazu”(1980) were attracted to the movie hall because of this fact.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 28
————————————————

Looking at 13th April of ten years ago, the post score card was six songs.

Ghar Aaya Mera Pardesi Aawaara 1951
Teri Duniya Me Jeene Se To Behtar Hai Ke Mar Jaayen House No 44 1955
Tu Kahan Ye Bataa Is Nasheeli Raat Mein Tere Ghar Ke Saamne 1963
Iktara Bole Yaadgaar 1970
O Neele Parbaton Ki Dhaara Aadmi Aur Insaan 1969
Prem Kahaani Me Ik Ladka Hota Hai Prem Kahaani 1975

Two of the six films represented that day had made their debut – ‘House No. 44’ (1955) and ‘Yaadgaar’ (1970). Of the six films, five are already yippeee’d over the past 10 years. The one film that still awaits all its songs to be posted is ‘Yaadgaar’. Today, we bring to fore the fourth third song of this film, from a total of six songs listed.

Manoj Kumar, having started his career in 1958 with films like ‘Panchaayat’ and ‘Sahaara’, turned a writer and a producer less than a decade later. His first venture was ‘Shaheed’ in released 1965. The film was directed by S Ram Sharma under the banner of KPK Movies, Bombay. Then in 1967, under the new banner of Vishal International, he produced and directed ‘Upkar’. Coming close on the heels of the 1965 conflict with Pakistan, and the sudden demise of Lal Bahadur Shastri in Jan 1966, this film rode a wave of popularity on the sentiments of nationalism and social integration, and became one of the major blockbusters of the 1960s. The film also established the image and tag name of Mr. Bharat for him.

In 1970, he followed it up with ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, again from his own banner of Vishal International, another film that is on the same theme of nationalism and Indian culture, further strengthening that image. The fact that the title role he played in these two films has the name ‘Bharat’ helped a lot, of course.

In 1970 came another film that followed in the footsteps of his earlier creations, with the similar socially relevant theme of nationalism and Indian culture. Although not from the banner of Vishal International (the production house was Kunal Chitra, Bombay), the film was directed by S Ram Sharma, an old friend who had also directed ‘Shaheed’ of 1965. As with ‘Shaheed’, the story and screenplay is written by Manoj Kumar himself.

The cast of actors for this film is listed as Nutan, Manoj Kumar, Pran, Prem Chopra, Kamini Kaushal, Mehmood (Junior), Madan Puri, Tiwari, Mohan Choti, Lalita Chatterjee, Asit Sen, Lakshmichaya, Shammi, Manmohan, Paulson, Jayshree, Kuljeet, Renu, Raj Kishore, Harbans Pape, Kirti Behal, Manohar, Naidu, Beerbal, Hansraj, Shrinath, Mohan Jerry, Dubey, Sabeena, Manohar Gosvai, Kesho Rana, Brahm Bhardwaj, Sobati, Aleeja, Genius, Darshan M, Ravikant, Chandra, Mohan Chhotu, Narbada Shankar, and Ramlal etc. One cannot help but notice a set of names that had had become regular in the cast of actors in his films – Kamini Kaushal, Pran, Madan Puri, Prem Chopra, Asit Sen, Tiwari, Mohan Choti, Manmohan, Shammi etc.

The theme song of this film is “Iktaara Bole, Sun Sun Kya Kahe Ye Tumse”. The song was a major hit in its time, as the film tried to address the malaise of degradation of social values in the Indian society. The song touches upon a series of topics like population, corruption in routine life, fashion, cold war and deteriorating relations between nations, political leaders, religious dogmas etc. The theme runs in parallel to the romantic love interest between Manoj Kumar and Nutan, touching also upon the class/caste conflict in the society.

This song carries forward this message of class/caste conflict and the desire for social equality. The scenario relates to the class conflict in religion. A number of people are waiting outside a temple, to enter and to worship theie God. But the pujari (priest) at the temple, temporarily halts the entry of devotees into the temple, as the chief patron of the temple is expected shortly. Rana Shamsher Singh (role played by Tiwari) is the rich man who has provided the funding for the temple, and so the temple is known by his name – Rana Mandir. As other devotees wait to enter the temple, a war of words breaks out between Bhanu (name of the role played by Manoj Kumar, thankfully not Bharat, as in ‘Upkar’ and ‘Purab Aur Paschim’) and Rana, which turns into this song that tells about God and his relationship to His devotees. The words tell that God is not necessarily housed in the temple, and that He also manifests Himself in many other locations and endeavors that also involve the poor and the downtrodden of the society.

The words of this song are from the pen of Indeewar, who also wrote the iconic “Kasme Waade Pyaar Wafa Sab. . .” for Manoj Kumar’s ‘Upkar’. The music is by Kalyanji Anandji. This music director duo was the regular MDs for Manoj Kumar’s films – ‘Upkar’, ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ and ‘Yaadgar’. But come 1972, Manoj Kumar switched to Laxmikant Pyaarelal with his next venture ‘Shor’.

The singing voice is of Mahendra Kapoor, the playback singer that Manoj Kumar preferred for himself. Listen to this typical ‘Bharat’ message that helped further strengthen the image of Mr Bharat.

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapvaala)

aaye jahaan bhagwaan se pehle
kisi dhanwaan ka naam
us mandir ke dwaar khade khud
royen krishna aur raam

dhanwaan ko pehle miley
bhagwaan ke darshan
darshan ko tarastaa rahey
jo bhakt ho nirdhan
ye dakshina ki reet
ye pandon ke chhalaawe
dukaan mein biktey huye
mandir ke chadhaawe
aise hi agar
aise hi agar dharm ka vyaapar
chalega
bhagwaan ka duniya mein
koi naam na legaa
aisi jageh pe jaa ke tu kuchh bhi na paayega
bhagwaan aisa mandir khud chhod jaayegaa
chhod jaayega
chhod jaayega

bhagwaan raana mandir mein nahin
to aur kahaan milegaa

wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milegaa
wo khet mein ae milegaa
khalihaan mein milegaa
bhagwaan to ae bande..ae
bhagwaan to ae bande
insaan mein ae milegaa
wo khet mein milega

dhanwaan jo hai jhoothha..aa
ho ho o o 
shaitaan ke baraabar
aa aa aa aa
nirdhan agar hai sachchaa
bhagwaan ke baraabar
wo dhong mein nahin hai
imaan mein milegaa..aa
wo khet mein milegaa

ganga se bhi hai paawan
ho ho o o 
mazdoor ka paseena
aa aa aa aa
paani na koi samjhe
anmol ye nagina
aise hi paseenon ke nirmaan mein milegaa
wo khet mein milegaa

geeta sunaa rahaa hai..ae
aawaaz mein kalon ki..ee
taqdeer likh rahaa hai
nokon se wo halon ki..ee

आये जहां भगवान से पहले
किसी धनवान का नाम
उस मंदिर के द्वार खड़े खुद
रोयें कृष्ण और राम

धनवान को पहले मिले
भगवान् के दर्शन
दर्शन को तरसता रहे
जो भक्त हो निर्धन
ये दक्षिणा कि रीत
ये पंडों के छलावे
दूकान में बिकते हुए
मंदिर के चढ़ावे
ऐसे ही अगर॰॰र
ऐसे ही अगर धर्म का व्यापार चलेगा
भगवान् का दुनिया में
कोई नाम ना लेगा
ऐसी जगह पे जाके तू कुछ भी न पायेगा
भगवान् ऐसा मंदिर खुद छोड़ जाएगा
छोड़ जाएगा
छोड़ जाएगा

(भगवान् राणा मंदिर में नहीं
तो और कहाँ मिलेगा)

वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में ए मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
भगवान् तो ए बन्दे॰॰ए
भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा

धनवान जो है झूठा॰॰आ
हो हो ओ ओ
शैतान के बराबर
आ आ आ आ
निर्धन अगर है सच्चा
भगवान् के बराबर
वो ढोंग में नहीं है
ईमान में मिलेगा॰॰आ॰॰आ
वो खेत में मिलेगा

गंगा से भी है पावन
हो हो ओ ओ
मजदूर का पसीना
आ आ आ आ
पानी न कोई समझे
अनमोल ये नगीना
ऐसे ही पसीनों के निर्माण में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा

गीता सुना रहा है॰॰ए
आवाज़ में कलों कि॰॰ई
तकदीर लिख रहा है
नोकों से वो हलों की॰॰ई
मजदूर में मिलेगा॰॰आ
वो किसान में ए मिलेगा॰॰आ
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा

भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा॰॰आ     
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा


भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा

Missing Films of 1960s – 97
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Goodness, what a lovely duet this one is. The film is ‘Sampooran Teerath Yatra’ from 1970. I have heard of this film earlier, but never did get an opportunity to listen to its songs. As I planned to bring this film on board in this series, I was checking out the songs of this film. And when I played this duet, I am verily bowled over by the sweetness of this composition.

The film is produced by Roopesh Pictures, Bombay. Now this is a very interesting co-incidence that I notice. The previous song in this series, “Ae Aasmaan Waale Is Waqt Tu Kahaan Hai”, is from the film ‘Ziarat Gahe Hind’. As discussed in that write up, that film is a story of pilgrimage to the Muslim places of worship. Today’s film is a story of pilgrimage to the Hindu places of worship. And guess what, both are produced by the same company – Roopesh Pictures, Bombay. And both released in the same year – 1970. Very, very interesting. 🙂

The film ‘Sampooran Teerath Yatra’ is directed by Dhirubhai Desai. The cast of actors includes Sushma, Ashish Kumar, Jeevan, Niranjan Sharma, Anand Tiwari, SK Shukla, Sahu Modak, Lata Arora, Zeba, Radha, Rajshri, Pal Sharma, Vishnu Pandey, Hari Ram, Dalpat, Master Kukku, Vidya, Ramlal, Deenanath, and Dalda.

Geet Kosh lists 5 songs for this film. All the songs are written by Madan. The music is composed by Pt Shivram. The singing voices are of Mahendra Kapoor and Hemlata. On screen, the song is performed by Ashish Kumar and Sushma.

It appears to be a wedding night song. The couple is meeting for the first time in their private chambers. And they sing this duet of promises of love that go across the cycles of birth and death, and even transcends the aeons. It is such a beautifully constructed song, and has been equally charmingly rendered by Mahendra Kapoor and Hemlata. Mahendra ji is at his softest best – yes, actually in some places, the voice of Hemlata overshadows his voice.

A lovely song, a must listen.

Blog Day : 3885 Post No. : 14913

Today 8th March (2019) is the ninety-eighth ‘birth anniversary’ (08.03.1921 – 25.10.1980) of Sahir Ludhianvi. Imagine, in another two years it will be his birth centenary celebrations and we can say that ‘sau saal pehle is sarzameen par ‘Sahir’ ka janam huaa tha’…

Regulars on this blog are well aware that already much has been written about Sahir Ludhianvi on this blog and other sources, and as mentioned by me in one of my earlier posts people are still exploring ‘Sahir’ in their own way. Many researches have been done and still continuing about Sahir and his poems.

I have mentioned in one of my earlier posts that we know Sahir Ludhianvi as a poet of the highest quality, a romantic at heart, and a rebel.
But for me, he was much more than this.

For me he was a truly secular individual, a humanitarian, and a motivational philosopher. There were many aspects to Sahir’s poetry and writing.

He has in his poems talked about Women’s issues and raised his concerns over their ‘plight’ in the Society and how women are still subjected to insult, exploitation, torture which is still prevailing around us. The issues Sahir wrote about and had concerns about are still relevant since years and years and on …

While Sahir has given us many memorable ‘romantic songs’ he has also given us many memorable or ‘immortal’, bhajans which lead us to the world of the sublime, to introspect within ourselves. His many motivational songs can inspire people and have been a source of motivation to many like me in this journey of life. They will continue to be so if someone listen to them with interest and also studies life and times of Sahir in right earnest.

In today’s post I have a lovely song penned by Sahir touching the ‘romantic’ side of his poetry and presenting one of those many many lovable and beautiful songs which Sahir Ludhianvi has written.

Today’s song is from the ‘1980’ movie ‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu’.

‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu-1980’ was produced and directed by B.R. Chopra for his home production ‘B.R. Films, Bombay’.

Ravi Chopra was the Associate Producer for this movie.

It had Zeenat Aman, Raj Babbar (new discovery), Deepak Parashar (new discovery), Padmini Kolhapure, Shreeram Lagoo, Simi Garewal, Iftekhar, Jagdish Raj, Vijay Sharma, Prem Sagar and Sunil Dhawan.

Om Shivpuri, Sujit Kumar, Yunus Parvez, Sudha Shivpuri, and Hiralal make a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

Dharmendra makes a ‘special appearance’ in this movie.

This movie had four songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Ravindra Jain. Asha Bhonsle, Hemlata and Mahendra Kapoor gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Story, Screenplay and Dialogues for this movie were written by Shabd Kumar. S.B. Mane was the Chief Editor for this movie, while R.P. Bapat was the Associate Editor.

Two songs from this movie have been posted earlier on this blog as given below;

Song Title Post Date
Insaaf ka taraazu 27.09.2013
Log aurat ko faqat jism samajh lete hain 08.03.2017

Today we are going to enjoy the third song of this movie sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor.

Lyrics are by Sahir Ludhianvi and music composed by Ravindra Jain as mentioned above.

Incidentally, and this I noted today only while drafting this post and going through the HFGK Vol-V, this movie was passed by Censor Board (or the certificate was issued on) on 25.10.1980.
Sahir Ludhianvi passed on the same day 25.10.1980. I am not aware if the movie was also released in theatres on the same day.

Let us now listen to this song of eternal – everlasting love …

Haqeeqat ka roop le lenge ae

हज़ार ख्वाब
हकीकत का रूप ले लेंगे
हज़ार ख्वाब
हकीकत का रूप ले लेंगे
मगर ये शर्त है तुम
मुस्कुरा के हाँ कह दो
मुहब्बतों में है दोनों का
एक ही मतलब
मुहब्बतों में है दोनों का
एक ही मतलब
अदा से ना कहो या
मुस्कुरा के हाँ कह दो ओ ओ

हज़ार ख्वाब
हकीकत का रूप ले ए लेंगे

हज़ार ख्वाब
बहारों के और सितारों के
तुम्हारे साथ मेरी ज़िन्दगी में
आये हैं
तुम्हारी बाहों के झूले में
झूलने के लिए
मचल मचल के मेरे अंग
गुन गुनाए हैं

हो ओ ओ ओ
ये सारे शौक़
सारे शौक़
ये सारे शौक़
सदाक़त का रूप ले लेंगे
मगर ये शर्त है तुम
मुस्कुरा के हाँ कह दो ओ ओ
हज़ार ख्वाब
हकीकत का रूप ले लेंगे

भरेगी मांग तुम्हारी
वो दिन भी क्या होगा
सजेगी सेज हवाओं की
सांस महकेगी
तुम अपने हाथ से सरकार्ओगे
मेरा आँचल
अजीब आग मेरे
तन बदन में देह्केगी

हो ओ
ये सारे शौक़
सारे शौक़
ये सारे शौक़ सदाक़त का रूप ले लेंगे
मगर ये शर्त है तुम
मुस्कुरा के हाँ कह दो ओ ओ
हज़ार ख्वाब
हकीकत का रूप ले लेंगे

हो ओ ओ ओ ओ
आ आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ आ आ आहा
आ आ आ आ आ आ आ

मैं अपनी जुल्फों के साए
बिछाउंगी तुम पर

मैं तुमपे अपनी जवाँ
धड़कने लुटाऊंगा
मैं सुबह तुमको जगाऊंगी
लब पे लब रख कर

मैं तुमको भींच के कुछ पास लाऊंगा
हो ओ ओ ओ
ये सारे शौक़
सारे शौक़
ये सारे शौक़ सदाक़त का रूप ले लेंगे

मगर ये शर्त हा तुम
मुस्कुरा के हाँ कह दो ओ ओ
मुहब्बतों में है दोनों का
एक ही मतलब
अदा से ना कहो

या आ
मुस्कुरा के हाँ कह दो ओ ओ
हज़ार ख्वाब
हकीकत का रूप ले लेंगे ए
