THE BEST PHOOL (FLOWER) SONGS

Phool or flowers are amongst the best of God’s creations, so much so, that we often compare our dear ones to flowers; we send flowers to people we like and we are convinced that there are as many colours of flowers as the colours that God made.

There are many poems on Flowers. One of the best is Pushp Ki Abhilasha by Makhanlal Chaturvedi. This is even more apt after the heartless remark of Bihar Rural Works and Panchayat Raj Minister Bhim Singh that soldiers are meant to die. He was responding to five Indian soldiers having been killed in cold blood by the Pakis.

पुष्प की अभिलाषा- माखनलाल चतुर्वेदी (Makhanlal Chaturvedi)

चाह नहीं मैं सुरबाला के गहनों में गूँथा जाऊँ
चाह नहीं, प्रेमी-माला में बिंध प्यारी को ललचाऊँ
चाह नहीं, सम्राटों के शवपर हे हरि, डाला जाऊँ
चाह नहीं, देवों के सिर पर चढ़ूँ भाग्य पर इठलाऊँ
मुझे तोड़ लेना वनमाली उस पथ पर देना तुम फेंक
मातृभूमि पर शीश चढ़ाने जिस पर जावें वीर अनेक II

 

It is not my desire to be weaved in the ornaments of a beautiful girl.
It is not my desire to be weaved into a Lover’s garland and tempt a beloved.
It is not my desire, O Hari, to adorn the funeral of a monarch.
It is not my desire to be presented as offering to a goddess and rejoice at my good luck.
O, Gardner, all I desire is
That you will pluck me and throw me on that path
On which our brave soldiers tread to sacrifice their lives for the motherland.

P.S. Any guesses how many Flowers would like to adorn the funeral of the Bihar Minister Bhim Singh?

The first Phool song, the best Phool song ever in Hindi movies, therefore, I have taken from the 1965 movie Shaheed starring Manoj Kumar and Kamini Kaushal. Lyrics are by Prem Dhawan as also the music. Mohammad Rafi has sung it with his usual passion. ‘Phool’ occurs once in the mukhada and once in the antara. In the mukhada it signifies that Flowers are nothing; at your feet, O’ Nation, we are prepared to offer our heads too. In the antara it signifies that We are from different parts of this great nation. We thus are like flowers of different colours and plants in your pooja thali. Really, I cannot think of a better Phool song for an Indian.

Ai vatan ai vatan hamako terii qasam
terii rAho.n mai.n jaa.n tak luTaa jaaye.nge
phuul kyaa chiiz hai tere kadamo.n pe ham
bhe.nT apane saro.n kii cha.Dhaa jaaye.nge
ai vatan ai vatan

Koii Pa.njaab se, koii MahaarAshhTr se
koii yuu pii se hai, koii ba.ngaal se
terii puujaa kii thaalii me.n laaye hai.n ham
phuul har ra.ng ke, aaj har Daal se
naam kuchh bhii sahii par lagan ek hai
jot se jot dil kii jagaa jaaye.nge
ai vatan ai vatan …

Terii jaanib uThii jo kahar kii nazar
us nazar ko jhukaa ke hii dam le.nge ham
terii dharatii pe hai jo kadam Gair kaa
us kadam kaa nishaa.N tak miTaa de.nge ham
jo bhii diivaar aayegii ab saamane
Thokaro.n se use ham giraa jaaye.nge

The second song is from the 1968 movie Saraswati Chandra starring Nutan and Manish. The movie won the National Awards in the Best Cinematography and Best Music Director (Kalyanji Anandji) categories.

The lyrics are by Indeevar and singers are Lata Mangeshkar and Mukesh.

Phool or flower is often compared to blossoming of Love. The last thing that the lovers want is that it should be called infatuation. This is exactly the theme of this Manna De song. Manna De left us on the 25th of Oct 13 and this ranks amongst his best. The song is from the 1971 movie Anubhav directed by Basu Bhattacharya and starring Sanjeev Kumar and Tanuja. Lyrics are by Kapil Kumar and music by Kanu Roy.

What about a Phool song describing the beauty of the heroine? There are dozens of them. I plan to give you just three of them. The first one is from the 1964 movie Aarzoo starring Rajendra Kumar, Feroze Khan, and Sadhna. Hasrat-SJ-Rafi have put this together. It has phool all the way, in the mukhada and antaras.

We are on the sub-theme of Phool songs describing the beauty of the heroine. The third best song in this category (there are dozens of these) is from the 1963 movie Shikari. Lyrics by Farooq Qaisar and music by GS Kohli. It is a duet between Rafi and Lata.

Lets now look at the comical and satirical songs with phool.

The first song in this category is also by Mukesh for the 1975 movie Prem Kahani starring Rajesh Khanna and Mumtaz. Lyrics have a kind of indirect satire perfected by Anand Bakshi and the music is by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The second one in this category is from the 1964 Raj Kapoor movie Sangam and everyone knows why it is a phool song: Sab jo laaye phool buddha gobhi le ke aa gaya….

Hasrat Jaipuri, Shankar Jaikishan and Lata Mangeshkar have put this together.

Please enjoy: Main kaa Karun Raam mujhe buddha mil gaya…

And the third one in this variety is an old favourite of mine sung by Manna Dey.

The song is from the 1964 movie Door Ka Chand starring Bharat Bhushan and B Saroja Devi. Sahir Ludhianvi was the lyricist and Roshan the music director. This song has typical Manna De classical singing.

Can a phool or flower be used for sad feelings or feelings of revenge? See it for yourself.

The name of this 1966 movie is ‘Aye Din Bahar Ke’ and hence one would expect that it would have happy phool songs. Well, it had: the title song and the song: Phoolon se mukhade waali. But, you have to give in to the lyrics of this revenge song too wherein the hero Dharmendra feels that he has been deceived by his beloved Asha Parekh. Amongst other things he curses her in the song that she should become a phool of patjhad (an autumn flower). The song has been put together by Anand Bakshi, Laxmant Pyarelal and Mohammad Rafi.

Please enjoy: Mere dushman tu meri dosti ko tarase…

This is not a filmy song but is dear to me. It has the same sentiments as in the Lyrical page picture of Rajesh Khanna holding a dried flower in his hand whilst singing: Kahin door jab din dhal jaaye.

This ghazal is from a favourite ghazal singer of mine: Mehdi Hasan. The ghazal was penned by Ahmed Faraz.

Please enjoy: Ab ke ham bichhade to shayad kabhi khwaabon mein milen,

Ab ke ham bichha.De to shaayad kabhii Kaabo.n me.n mile.n

ab na wo mai.n huu.N na wo tuu hai na wo maazii hai ‘faraaz’
jaise do saaye tamannaa ke saraabo.n me.n mile.n

Another melancholic song in this category is depicting that if I don’t get phool (flowers) I shall live with the friendship of the thorns. It is from the 968 movie Anokhi Raat starring Parikshat Sahni and Zaheeda. Kaifi Azmi, Roshan and Rafi have put this together.

Please enjoy: Mile naa phool to kaanto se dosti kar li…

Mile na phuul to kaa.NTo.n se dostii kar lii

zabaa.n khulii bhii na thii aur baat bhii kar lii
Vo jinako pyaar hai chaa.ndii se, ishq sone se
vahii kahe.nge kabhii hamane Kudakashii kar lii

Okay, just one last sad phool song before I end with happy ones.

This one is from the 1964 movie Chandi Ki Deewar. The singer is Talat Mehmood on Sahir Ludhianvi’s lyrics and N Dutta’s music.

Please enjoy: Ashqon mein jo paaya hai, vo geeton mein diya hai,

PHOOL is in the second stanza…
Ashko.n ne jo paayaa hai vo giito.n me.n diyaa hai

Lets now take up some happy phool songs.

No ‘Special’ on Phool songs can be complete without this Prem Pujari song penned by Neeraj with music by Sachin Dev Burman (since Prem Pujari was a Dev Anand movie). Kishore Kumar sang it.

Please enjoy: Phoolon ke rang se, dil ki kalam se….

The 1966 movie Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya starred Dharmendra, Nutan and Rehman and some very nice numbers put together by GS Rawal and Sonik Omi. This one is particularly refreshing; sung by Mohammad Rafi.

Since we are on the sub theme of happy phool songs, how can we forget this really enchanting duet from 1975 movie Chupke Chupke starring Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bahaduri? Anand Bakshi, SD Burman, Mukesh and Lata have put this together.

We haven’t exhausted all the sub-themes of phool songs. But I end up with the Yaad theme. Phool or flowers are beautiful creations of God. When you look at them, if you are away from your love, you think of him or her. There are many songs on this sub theme, eg, Rang rang ke phool khile mujhe bhaaye koi rang na..ab aan milo sajana; and Rajnigandha phool tumhaare mehake younhi jeevan mein. But my favourite is this from the 1967 movie Taqdeer. It is an Anand Bakshi – Laxmikant Pyarelal song sung by various singers.

Please enjoy: Jab jab bahar aayi aur phool muskaraye…

Jab jab bahaar aa_ii
Aur phool muskuraaye
(mujhe tum yaad aaye) -2
jab jab bhii chaa.Nd nikalaa

(mujhe tum yaad aaye) -2
(ik pyaar aur wafaa kii tasaviir maanataa huu.N) -2
tasaviir kyaa, tumhe.n mai.n taqadiir jaanataa huu.N ho~~

lekin ye pyaar vo hai jis me.n nahii.n judaa_ii… o…
is pyaar ke fasaane jab jab zubaa.N pe aaye
(mujhe tum yaad aaye) -2

On second thoughts the best way to end with the best phool songs is with a bhajan – my favourite form of music.

This is a very beautiful bhajan from the 1954 movie Nastik starring Nalini Jaywant and Ajit. Lyrics are those of Pradeep and music is by C Ramachandra.

This is the only way to love God!

Tere phoolon se bhi pyaar,
Tere kaanton se bhi pyaar…
AmR^it aur zahar dono.n hai.n saagar me.n ek saath
manthan kaa adhikaar hai sab ko phal prabhu tere haath
Tere phuulo.n se bhii pyaar
tere kaa.nTo.n se bhii pyaar
jo bhii denaa chaahe de de karataar
duniyaa ke taaraNahaar

I hope you liked my choice of phool songs under various sub-themes.

My next theme is the best of lori (lullaby) songs in Hindi movies. Please keep accessing this blog.

  1. This is a good collection of Phool songs. The top of the mind Phool song for me is ‘Paoon choo lene do phoolon ko’ from Taj Mahal. The song and singing are as tender as flowers. The other song that comes to mind is ‘Tere hoton ke hai phool pyare pyare’,the Lata-Mukesh duet from Paras. This song has a lot of references to chaman, phool and so on.

    1. Thank you; both the songs that you mentioned are excellent songs especially Paanv chhoo lene do. As you must know, posts like these are difficult to put up and take enormous time; one doesn’t know what to leave out!
