THE BEST SONGS OF RAJENDRA KRISHAN, THE RICHEST LYRICIST – PART III

In Part I of ‘The Best Songs Of Rajendra Krishan, The Richest Lyricist’ I gave you 25 songs. After the initial introductory songs, I gave you songs chronologically from the year 1951  to 1955, from Badi Bahen to Azaad. On the 2nd of Sep 16, since it was the first birth anniversary of Sadhana after her demise on 25 Dec 2015, I also gave three songs of hers penned by Rajendra Krishan (or Rajinder Krishan since he used both the spellings).

In ‘The Best Songs Of Rajendra Krishan, The Richest Lyricist – Part II’, I gave you another 26 songs from Ai dil mujhe bata de tu kis pe aa gaya hai… (1956 movie Bhai Bhai) to Zaroorat hai zaroorat hai, zaroorat hai, ik shrimati ki….(1962 movie Manmauji). We have, therefore, crossed the halfway mark.

I reiterate, yet another time, that am a lyrical man; words of the songs are often the most important part of the songs for me. Indeed, on the Facebook I have a page titled ‘Lyrical’ to honour and pay tribute to various lyricists. I have several (almost a dozen) posts on  my blog on my favourite lyricist and poet Shakeel Badayuni. The following posts about Rajendra Krishan have been reconstructed from the same page. Rajendra Krishan was considered the richest lyricist, writer and poet not only because he won a jackpot of Rupees 46 Lakhs in horse-racing.

Song #52
Ai dil ab kahin naa jaa….

Last night, we listened to three excellent songs from the 1962 movie Sadhana starring Kishore Kumar and Sadhana. Madan Mohan composed the songs on Rajinder Krishan’s lyrics.

Tonight, we start with his next movie: the 1963 movie Bluff Master, a Manmohan Desai movie starring Shammi Kapoor and Saira Bano.

Poster courtesy: saavn

The songs of this movie penned by Rajinder Krishan were composed by Kalyanji Anandji:

1 “Ae Dil Ab Kahin Le Ja” Hemant Kumar
2 “Bedardi Daghabaaz” Lata Mangeshkar
3 “Chali Chali Kaisi Hawa Yeh” Shamshad Begum, Usha Mangeshkar
4 “Govinda Aala Re Aala” Mohammed Rafi
5 “Husn Chala Kuchh Aisi Chaal” Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar
6 “Jabse Tujhe Jaan Gayi” Lata Mangeshkar
7 “Socha Tha Pyar Ham Na Karenge” Mukesh

So many diffferent singers. Hats off to Kalyanji Anandji for bringing out the best from all of them.

Lets start with my favourite Hemant Kumar. This was composed by Kalyanji Anandji in Raag Bhairavi, Tal Kaherava.

Please enjoy: Ai dil ab kahin naa jaa….

ai dil ab kahii.n na jaa
na kisii kaa mai.n, na koii meraa

jab chale ham, raah ulajhii pyaar duniyaa ne kiyaa
raah siidhii jab milii to sab ne Thukaraa diyaa
ai dil …

na kisii ko chaah merii na kisii ko i.ntazaar
kis liye phir mu.D ke piichhe dekhanaa baar-baar
ai dil …

Song #53
Socha tha pyaar hum na karenge….

In the last song from the 1963 movie Bluff Master starring Shammi Kapoor and Saira Bano, I had mentioned that Kalyanji Anandji got so many singers together in the seven songs of the movie.

Mukesh with Kalyanji Anandji

We listened to Hemant Kumar. Now lets listen to Mukesh.

Please enjoy: Socha tha pyaar hum na karenge….

sochaa thaa pyaar ham naa kare.nge

phir bhii kisii pe dil aa gayaa

agar dil na dete ba.Daa naam karate
magar pyaar me.n ba.Daa kaam karate -2
dil ko yahii kaam bhaa gayaa
sochaa thaa pyaar …

Song #54
Govinda ala re ala….

If you think the first two songs from the 1963 movie Bluff Master by two different singers, ie, Hemant Kumar and Mukesh have been supeb, you have

Rafi rehearsing with Kalyanji Anandji (Pic courtesy: Indian Express)

to wait for the third singer Mohammad Rafi to come up with this all time most popular Janamashatami number.

Hats off to Kalyanji Anandji for the superb tune.

Song #55
Yeh khamoshiyan, yeh tanhaayiyan…..

1963 was a very successful year for Rajendra or Rajinder Krishan. Besides Bluff Master, he wrote songs of Yeh Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke, Ghar Basake Dekho and Bharosa; all beautiful and super hit songs.

Yeh Raaste Hain Pyar Ke was the first of the several movies depicting the Commander Nanawati case; the latest one being Rustom. At the premiere of Rustom, for which my friend Raj Dutta very graciously called us, I had this to say to the sponsors Red FM: “I don’t know why only a botched up affair of a navy officer’s wife has been so fascinating to the Hindi film industry that they keep making one after the other movies on the same theme. There are hardly any takers for combat role of the Indian Navy”. Recently, Maj Gen Bakshi’s son made an outstanding movie for India Today Channel titled Killer Squadron depicting how the action by Indian Navy missile boats spelt devastation for Pakistan and Karachi was ablaze on the night of 4th Dec 1971 (since then celebrated as Navy Day).

Sunil Dutt and Leela Naidu in the 1963 RK Nayyar (Sunil Dutt’s debut production) movie Yeh Raaste Hain Pyar Ke, a thinly disguised version of infamous Commander Nanavati case in which he killed his wife’s lover.

Anyway, back to Yeh Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke starring Sunil Dutt and Leela Naidu. My namesake Ravi composed the following songs on the lyrics of Rajinder Krishan:

1. Yeh Khamoshiya Yeh Tanhaayiya
2. Tum Jis Pe Nazar Daalo Us Dil Ka Khudahafij
3. Zulf Lehrai Teri Or Meri Takdeer Bani
4. Yeh Raaste Hain Pyar Ke Chalna Sambhal Sambhal Ke
5. Aaj Yeh Meri Zindagi dekho khushi me jhumti jane chali kaha
6. Gunahon Ka Diya Tha Hak
7. Jane Jaan Paas Aao (Hawao Ko Dekho, Nazaro Ko Dekho)

Quite a mix of happy and sad songs, you will agree.

Lets start with the first one: Yeh khamoshiyan, ye tanhaayiyan, the kind of song that the couple would sing in the quietness of winter in Kashmir just as many decades later the Roja song was composed by AR Rehman in the same place!

Please enjoy: Mohammad Rafi and Asha Bhosle sing: Yeh khamoshiyan, yeh tanhaayiyan…..

Song #56
Ye raaste hain pyaar ke chalna sambhal sambhal ke…

The next song from the 1963 movie Ye Raaste Hain Pyar Ke that I am giving you is the title song with lyrics by Rajendra Krishan that are so appropriate to the theme of the movie.

Rajinder Krishan with the producer and hero of the movie Yeh Raaste Hain Pyar Ke: Sunil Dutt

It has been sung by Asha Bhosle.

Please enjoy: Ye raaste hain pyaar ke chalna sambhal sambhal ke…

Song #57
Aaj ye meri zindagi, dekho khushi mein jhumti, jaane chali kahan….

The last song tonight is from the same 1963 movie Ye Raaste Hain Pyar Ke starring Sunil Dutt and Leela Naidu. The movie wanted to steer clear from acknowledging that it was based on Nanawati case. However, people had no doubt.

Ashok Kumar was the prosecution lawyer in the movie and what acting and dialogues he came up with.

The last song is a happy song picturised on Sunil Dutt and the ever so beautiful Leela Naidu. Coincidentally, this is the third song this evening sung by Asha Bhosle

Asha Bhosle with music director Ravi

(the first one being a duet between Rafi and her). One has to actually listen to these songs to get the excellence of their lyrics and compositions and the fabulous range of singing of Asha Bhosle.

Please enjoy: Aaj ye meri zindagi, dekho khushi mein jhumti, jaane chali kahan….

(aaj ye merii zi.ndagii dekho Kushii me.n jhuumatii

Song #58
Tumne hansi hi hansi mein kyun….

The third movie for which Rajendra Krishan penned the lyrics of the songs in 1963 was Kishore Sahu’s Ghar Basake Dekho starring Manoj Kumar, Mehmood, Rajshree, Shyama. Its songs were composed by Chitragupta:

1 Ae Mere Pyar Bata Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor
2 Tumne Hansi Hi Hansi Mein Kyun Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor
3 Khush Rahe Teri Nagri Lata Mangeshkar
4 Jidhar Ji Mein Aaya Udhar Hum Chale Suman Kalyanpur, Usha Mangeshkar
5 Ye Ras Teri Baton Ka Chocolate Mohammed Rafi
6 Aap Ki Ankhon Ka Mere Dil Pe Yeh Ehsaan Hai

Lets take up the beautiful duet between Lata and Mahendra Kapoor.

Please enjoy: Tumne hansi hi hansi mein kyun….

tumne hansi hi hansi me kyu dil churaya javab do
tumne hansi hi hansi me kyu dil churaya javab do
aankho se tumne bhi kitni neende churayi hisab do
aankho se tumne bhi kitni neende churayi hisab do

tumne mere masum dil par kaisa jadu kar diya
tumne mere masum dil par kaisa jadu kar diya
tumne meri jindagi ko pyar se kyu bar diya
baato hi baato me kaisa jadu chalaya hisab do
aankho se tumne bhi kitni neende churayi hisab do

tumko sayad malum hoga tum hamare kon ho
tumko sayad malum hoga tum hamare kon ho
hum tumhare jo bhi honge tum hamare kon ho
pahle bhi aisi kitni bate chhupayi hisab do
tumne hansi hi hansi me kyu dil churaya javab do

jab mile the hum pahle pahle tum to kuch aise na the
tumse milkar ho gaye yu varna hum aise na the
dil me mohabbat ka toofan kisne uthaya jabab do
tumne hansi hi hansi me kyu dil churaya javab do
aankho se tumne bhi kitni neende churayi hisab do

Song #59
Dil todana kisi ka ye zindagi nahin hai….

And the last movie of 1963 for Rajinder Krishan as lyricist was the Guru Dutt starrer Bharosa directed by K Shankar. Asha Parekh acted opposite him and Mehmood supported ably.

Since this movie starred Asha Parekh, we took up the folowing songs of the movie on her Birthday on Gandhi Jayanti this year:

1. Aaj ki mulaqaat bas itani.
2. Is bhari duniya mein.
3. Woh dil kahan se laayun.

That brings us squarely to the year 1964 and Rajendra Krishan started with a bang by pairing yet another time with Madan Mohan and creating some exceptional songs for the movie Pooja Ke Phool:

Dharmendra and Mala Sinha in a scene form the 1964 AVM Production: Pooja Ke Phool

1 “Pahle Meri Aankhon Ke Chiraago Ko Bhujhaaya” Lata Mangeshkar
2 “Dil Todna Kisi Ka Yeh Zindagi Nahi Hai” Lata Mangeshkar
3 “Meree Aankho Se Koyee Nind Liye Jaata Hai” Lata Mangeshkar
4 “Ab Do Dilo Ki Mushkil Aasaan Ho Gayi Hai” Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi
5 “Meow Meow Meri Sakhi” Lata Mangeshkar
6 “Banda Paravar Ho Raat Ke Andhere Me Yun” Asha Bhosle
7 “Hey Jamaalo O Baba He Jamaalo” Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi
8 “Do Ghadi Sath Rahe Khush Rahe Aabaad Rahe” Mohammed Rafi
9 “Sanam Apni Palkon Pe Tujhko Bithaakar Dikhata Hu” Mohammed Rafi

We shall be taking up three of these songs, two tonight and one tomorrow; songs #s 2, 3, and 4.

Please enjoy Lata ji sing: Dil todana kisi ka ye zindagi nahin hai….

ara thahar jara thahar
tujhe samjhau jindagi kya hai
jo aaj tak na mili tujhko wo khushi kya hai
dil todna kisi ka ye zindagi nahi hai
dil todna kisi ka ye zindagi nahi hai

gum dusre ka lele kya ye khushi nahi hai
chal is tarah ke jaise chalti hai ye hawaye
chal is tarah ke jaise chalti hai ye hawaye
phulo ko ye khilaye bago ko ye hasaye
apne liye jiye jo wo admi nahi hai
dil todna kisi ka ye zindagi nahi hai

jis par udasiya ho us hoth ko hasi de
jis par udasiya ho us hoth ko hasi de
dekar karar apna badle me bekali de
tera dil hai ek khazana tujhe kuch kami nahi hai
dil todna kisi ka ye zindagi nahi hai

wo chand ho ya shola dono me nur dekha
wo chand ho ya shola dono me nur dekha
lekin jise bhi dekha shole se dur dekha
jo fuk de kisi ko wo roshni nahi hai
dil todna kisi ka ye zindagi nahi hai
gum dusre ka lele kya ye khushi nahi hai

jara thahar jara thahar
tujhe samjhau jindagi kya hai
jo aaj tak na mili tujhko wo khushi kya hai
dil todna kisi ka ye zindagi nahi hai
dil todna kisi ka ye zindagi nahi hai

Song #60
Meri aankhon se koi neend liye jaata hai….
And the last song tonight is the second song from the movie Pooja Ke Phool that we earlier selected. The movie starred Dharmendra and Mala Sinha together with Ashok Kumar. This must rank amongst the best of the Neend songs with excellent lyrics and composition.

Please enjoy Lata Mangeshkar sing: Meri aankhon se koi neend liye jaata hai….

meri aankho se koi nind liye jata hai
meri aankho se koi nind liye jata hai
dur se pyar ka paigam diye jata hai
meri aankho se koi nind liye jata hai

raat bhar jagenge ham
tumse chhup chhupke sanam
raat bhar jagenge ham
tumse chhup chhupke sanam
aankh jhapke na kabhi
chaand taro ki kasam
dil mera aaj ikrar kiye jata hai
dur se pyar ka paigam diye jata hai
meri aankho se koi nind liye jata hai

baat jo unase chali wo idhar aake ruki
nam jab unaka liya ek khushbu si uddi
baat jo unase chali wo idhar aake ruki
nam jab unaka liya ek khushbu si uddi
ek tasavvur hai jo madhosh kiye jata hai
dur se pyar ka paigam diye jata hai
meri aankho se koi nind liye jata hai

Song #61
Ab do dilon ki mushkil aasaan ho gayi hai…

Yesterday, we were on the songs of Pooja Ke Phool, the 1963 movie starring Dharmendra and Mala Sinha. We took up two of the three songs that we wanted to take up: Dil todana kisi ka, and Meri aankhon se koi neend liye jaata hai. And, I am sure you would have agreed with me that the lyrics were super indeed.

Asha Bhosle and Mohammad Rafi with Madan Mohan (Pic courtesy: madanmohan.in)

Here is the third one: a duet between Asha Bhosle and Mohammad Rafi.

Once again, it has been composed by Madan Mohan.

Please enjoy: Ab do dilon ki mushkil aasaan ho gayi hai…

ra : ab do dilo.n kii mushkil aasaan ho ga_ii hai

la : do jism to hai.n lekin ik jaan ho ga_ii hai

Song #62
Mujhe le chalo aaj us gali….

The next film for which he wrote the lyrics of the songs was the 1964 movie Sharaabi starring Dev Anand and Madhubala. We shall be taking up three songs of this movie as these are some of his best lyrics.

By this time, his best pairing had already become with Madan Mohan. Look at the songs that they produced in this movie:

1. Tum Ho Hasin Kahan Ke, Ham Chaand Aasmaan Ke
2. Jaao Ji Jaao Dekhe Hai Bade Tum Jaise Chor Lutere
3. Mujhe Le Chalo Aaj Phir Us Gali Men
4. Kabhi Na Kabhi, Kahi Na Kahi, Koi Na Koi To Aayega
5. Sawan Ke Mahine Me (Sad)
6. Saawan Ke Mahine Me Ik Aag Si Seene Me Lagati Hai To Pee
7. Sawan Ke Mahine Me (Slow)
8. Do Do Haath, Do Do Paanv, Kaam Jo Lega In Chaaron

We shall take up two tonight and one tomorrow.

No one acts better as a sharaabi than Dev Anand. Try him in this movie or in Kaala Pani (Hum bekhudi mein tumako pukaare chale gaye) or in Guide (Din dhal jaaye haay raat na jaaye) or in Hum Dono (Kabhi khud pe kabhi halaat pe rona aaya). He was the best.

Lets start with my favourite song in the movie: Mujhe le chalo aaj us gali….

mujhe le chalo, aaj phir us galii me.n
jahaa.N pahale-pahale, ye dil la.Dakha.Daayaa

vo duniyaa, vo merii mohabbat kii duniyaa
jahaa.N se mai.n betaabiyaa.N leke aayaa

jahaa.N se mai.n betaabiyaa.N leke aayaa
mujhe le chalo …

Song #63
Kabhi na kabhi, kahin na kahin, koi na koi to aayega….
And the last song tonight, from the 1964 movie Sharaabi also became very popular.

I had kept it for the ongoing Hamara, Apna Fest on Yaad Kiya Dil Ne but since there are thousands of songs on the theme, I don’t mind giving it here. Once again, Mohammad Rafi was the singer.

Please enjoy: Kabhi na kabhi, kahin na kahin, koi na koi to aayega….

kabhii na kabhii kahii.n na kahii.n koii na koii to aayegaa

Song #64
Sawan ke mahine mein…..

We were viewing and listening to the songs that Rajendra or Rajinder Krishan penned for the 1964 movie Sharaabi starring Dev Anand and Madhubala.

We had taken up two out of the three songs we had chosen to view: Mujhe le chalo aaj us gali, and Kabhi na kabhi, kahin na kahin, koi na koi to aayega.

Dev Anand was the best in songs in drunken stupor (Here he is in Guide song: Din dhal jaaye…)

Here is the third that was even more popular than the other two. Dev Anand was always very convincing as a Shraabi and he did it in number of movies; for example in Guide (Din dhal jaaye haay raat na jaaye) and Hum Dono (Kabhi khud pe kabhi haalaat pe rona aaya).

Madan Mohan composed it and Mohammad Rafi sang it.

Please enjoy: Sawan ke mahine mein…..

Song #65
Ye jhuki jhuki jhuki nigahen teri….

The next movie for which he penned the song lyrics was the 1964 movie: Aao Pyaar Karen starring Joy Mukherjee and Saira Bano. All songs were composed by Usha Khanna.

Usha Khanna – One of the earliest female music directors in a primarily male bastion

1. Tum Akele To Kabhi Bagh Mein Jaya Na Karo
2. Ik Sunahari Sham Thi, Bahki Bahki Jindagi
3. Dil Ke Aaine Mein Tasvir Teri Rahti Hai
4. Yeh Jhuki Jhuki Jhuki Nigahein Teri
5. Meri Dastan Mujhe Hi Mera Dil Suna Ke Roye
6. Bahar E Husn Teri, Mausam-E-Shabab Tera, Jahan Tu Hai Vahan Phir Chandni Ko
7. Jabse Bani Hai Yeh Duniya, Pyar Sanam Hai Pyar Khuda, Aao Pyar Kare (Duet)
8. Tamannao Ko Khilne De
9. Jinke Liye Main Deewana Bana, Woh Bhi Kahte Hai Diwana Mujhe
10. Dilbar Dilbar Ho Dilbar

We shall be taking up two of these.

Here is the first one, a very diferently composed song (a path-breaker during those days). It was sung by Mohammad Rafi who could sing all kinds of songs.

Please enjoy: Ye jhuki jhuki jhuki nigahen teri….

ye jhuki jhuki jhuki nigahen teri
ye ruki ruki ruki si ahen teri
dil ka raz keh gayi, tujh ko pyar hai kahi

Song #66
Tum akele to kabhi baag mein jaaya na karo…

And the last song for the evening is also from his 1964 movie Aao Pyaar Karen starring Joy Mukherjee and Saira Bano. It is a beautiful, though longish duet between Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar singing for the lead actors.

Please enjoy: Tum akele to kabhi baag mein jaaya na karo…

tum akele to kabhi baag me jaya na karo
tum akele to kabhi baag me jaya na karo
aaj kal phool bhi dilwale hua karte hai
koyi kadmo se lipat baitha to phir
to phir kya hoga, to phir kya hoga
tum akele to kabhi baag me jaya na karo
tum akele to kabhi baag me jaya na karo
aaj kal kaliya badi shokh hua karti hai
koyi shokhi pe utar aayi to phir
to phir kya hoga, to phir kya hoga
tum akele to kabhi baag me jaya na karo

tum kabhi zulf ko chehre pe giraya na karo
tum kabhi zulf ko chehre pe giraya na karo
baz dil wale bhi kamzor hua karte hai
koyi nagin jo samjh baitha to phir
to phir kya hoga, to phir kya hoga
mehfil e husn ki chilman ko uthaya na karo
mehfil e husn ki chilman ko uthaya na karo
bijliyan kali ghatao me chhupi hoti hai
koyi chupke se chamak jaye to phir
to phir kya hoga, to phir kya hoga
tum akele to kabhi baag me jaya na karo

tum kabhi ankh me kaajal bhi lagaya na karo
tum kabhi ankh me kaajal bhi lagaya na karo
inhin ankhon ke jaricho me to ham baste hai
sath kaajal ke jo bah nikle to phir
to phir kya hoga, to phir kya hoga, hay hoy
husn walo ke muqabil kabhi aaya na karo
husn walo ke muqabil kabhi aaya na karo

Song #67
Main teri nazar ka saroor hoon…..

His next movie, the 1964 movie Jahan Ara, had his finest songs. As I mentioned earlier, by this time he had formed one of the Hindi movies’ best combination with Madan Mohan about whom OP Nayyar once remarked that all his (Nayyar’s) songs put together didn’t match up to just two of the ghazals composed by Madan Mohan.

Jahan Ara’s story was based on the historical story wherein Mumtaz, whilst dying, takes a pledge from her daughter Jahan Ara that she wouldn’t marry but look after her father and Mumtaz’s love-of-a-lifetime Shahjehan. Now, it so happened that she was in love with her childhood friend Mirza Yusuf Changezi and their love not leading to anything (and indeed Jahan Ara was forbidden to meet him) because of Jahan Ara’s pledge is the one that was the subject of the most beautiful ghazals that were put together by Rajendra Krishan and Madan Mohan:

1. “Baad Muddat Ke Yeh Ghadi Ayee” Mohammed Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur 04:57
2. “Main Teri Nazar Ka Suroor Hoon” Talat Mahmood 02:56
3. “Woh Chup Rahen To Mere” Lata Mangeshkar 04:35
4. “Phir Wohi Sham Wohi Gham” Talat Mahmood 03:30
5. “Aye Sanam Aaj Aye Qasam Khayen” Talat Mahmood, Lata Mangeshkar 04:40
6. “Teri Aankh Ke Ansoo” Talat Mahmood 04:05
7. “Kisi Ki Yaad Mein Duniya Ko” Mohammed Rafi 03:25
8. “Haal-E-Dil Yoon Unhe Sunaayaa Gayaa” Lata Mangeshkar 03:03
9. “Jab Jab Tumhe Bhulaya, Tum Aur Yaad Aaye” Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle 08:25
10. “Tum uda Hokar Hame” Talat Mahmood
11. “Kabhi Aankhon Mein Teri” Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Meena Mangeshkar

You will agree with me that these are some of the finest ghazals in Hindi movies and hence we shall be taking up quite a few of them.

Lets start with the first one sung by Talat Mehmood: Main teri nazar ka saroor hoon…..

mai.n terI nazar kA suruur huu.N
tujhe yaad ho ke nA yaad ho
tere paas rahake bhI dUr huu.N
tujhe yaad ho ke nA yaad ho
mai.n terI nazar kA suruur huu.N

(mujhe aa.Nkh se to giraa diyaa
kaho dil se bhI kyA bhulaa diyaa ) – 2
terI aashiqii kA Guruur huu.N
tujhe yaad ho ke nA yaad ho
mai.n terI nazar kA …

(terI zulf hai mere haath me.n
ke tU aaj bhI mere saath hai ) – 2
tere dil me.n bhI mai.n zaruur huu.N
tujhe yaad ho ke nA yaad ho
mai.n terI nazar kA …

Song #68
Woh chup rahen to mere dil ke daag jalate hain…

The 1964 movie Jahan Ara whose ghazals and songs we are taking up had Mala Sinha in the title role. Even though she was used to over-acting (in-your-face type of acting that another of her co-star of several movie, Manoj Kumar, was adept at), in this movie she was quite passable only because most often than not she had to only look sad and tearful.

Mirza Yusuf Changezi’s, her lover’s, role was played by Bharat Bhushan.

Lata Mangeshkar rehearsing the song: Woh chup rahen to mere…with Madan Mohan

The second song that we are taking up from the movie has been sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The film-directors of that era were able to use, many a times, courtesans and comedians to convey the feelings of the lead cast (eg in Chhote Nawab, a song lip-synced by the courtesan Minoo Mumtaz, actually conveys the feelings of Ameeta for her husband Mehmood who, without caring for her, is actually watching the courtesan’s dance; the song being: Ghar aaja ghir aaye badra saanwariya). Here too, Minoo Mumtaz lip-syncs this song.

These are some of the best lyrics of Rajendra Krishan, if not the best.

Please enjoy: Woh chup rahen to mere dil ke daag jalate hain (A YKDN Fest theme song):

vo chup rahe.n to mere dil ke dAG jalate hai.n
jo bAt kar le.n to bujhate charAG jalate hai.n

kaho bujhe.n ke jale.n
ham apanI rAh chale.n yA tumhArI rAh chale.n
kaho bujhe.n ke jale.n
bujhe.n to aise ke kisI GarIb kA dil
kisI GarIb kA dil
jale.n to aise ke jaise charAG jalate hai.n

yah khoI khoI nazar
kabhI to hogI yA sadA rahegI udhar
yah khoI khoI nazar
udhar to ek sulaGatA huA hai vIrAnA
hai ek vIrAnA
magar idhar to bahAro.n me.n bAG jalate hai.n

jo ashq pI bhI lie

jo ashq pI bhI lie
kuchh Aj apanI sunAo kuchh Aj merI suno
KAmoshio.n se to dil aur dimAG jalate hai.n

Song #69
Phir wohi shaam wohi gham wohi tanhaayi hai….

In the 1964 movie Jahan Ara we have many bests. I have already mentioned in the two songs that I had given that these are the finest songs put together by Rajendra Krishan and Madan Mohan.

Mala Sinha was nominated for – hold your breath – for Best Actress award. Mercifully she didn’t get it.

And now we come up with not

Lata Mangehskar and Talat Mahmood with Madan Mohan (Also in picture M.A.K. Pataudi) (Pic courtesy: cineplot.com)

just one of the best of Talat Mehmood but widely regarded as his best in singing quality, excellence of lyrics and composition.

Please enjoy: Phir wohi shaam wohi gham wohi tanhaayi hai….

phir vohii shaam vahii Gam vahii tanahaaI hai
dil ko samajhaane terii yaad chalii aaI hai

phir tasavvur tere pahaluu me.n biThaa jaaegaa

phir vohii shaam …

Song #70
Teri aankh ke aansu pi jaayun, aisi meri taqdeer kahan…

Yesterday, after a week’s break (caused due to my being very busy), we started taking up songs of the 1964 movie Jahan Ara starring Mala Sinha in the title role with Bharat Bhushan acting as her lover from her childhood days: Mirza Yusuf Changezi.

We took up three songs yesterday:

1. Main teri nazar ka saroor hoon.
2. Woh chup rahen to mere.
3. Phir wohi shaam wohi gham wohi tanhaayi hai.

Tonight we shall take up another three (these are so good).

Talat Mahmood and Madan Mohan (at the recording of the song: Teri aankh ke aansu pi jaayun) (Pic courtesy: i.ytimg.com)

The first one, once again, has been sung by Talat Mehmood. Lyricist-Composer combination continues being Rajendra Krishan-Madan Mohan.

Please enjoy: Teri aankh ke aansu pi jaayun, aisi meri taqdeer kahan (Another Fest song (Mera, Apna, Hamara Songs Fest) on YKDN:

Song #71
Jab jab tumhen bhulaya tum aur yaad aaye….

Yesterday, I talked about how well the directors of yore used the medium of courtesans to convey the feelings of the lead cast. I was giving a prelude to the song: Woh chup rahen to mere dil ke daag jalte hain lip-synced and danced upon by Minoo Mumtaz.

And now, we have a song in which Vinod Kumar, the director, uses not one but two courtesans to convey these emotions.

Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar (Pic courtesy: Dainik Bhaskar)

This movie had so many best songs that to call this as one of the best would be a cliche’. Anyway, it was sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle singing for Minoo Mumtaz and Aruna Irani. These lyrics are very very strong, eg:

Marane ki aarzu mein ham ji rahen hain aise,
Jaise ke laash apni khud hi koi uthaaye;
Tum aur yaad aaye.

Please enjoy: Jab jab tumhen bhulaya tum aur yaad aaye….

jab-jab tumhe.n bhulaayaa tum aur yaad aa_e

Song #72
Kisi ki yaad mein duniya ko bhulaaye hue….

And sadly, after five songs of just one of his movies, the 1964 movie Jahan Ara, we are now at the last song that I have selected for you.

Just like Anarkali had just one song by Hemant Kumar, in this movie with 11 songs, only one was sung by Mohammad Rafi.

Talat Mehmood’s forte’ was ghazals whereas Rafi was strong in all genre’ of songs. This one was based on a difficult raag Kedar, tal Dadra that only Rafi could sing.

Please enjoy: Kisi ki yaad mein duniya ko bhulaaye hue….

kisii kii yaad me.n duniyaa ko hai.n bhulaaye huye
zamaanaa guzaraa hai apanaa Khayaal aaaye huye

ba.Dii ajiib Khushii hai Gam-e-muhabbat bhii

Song #73
Remembering Manna Dey on His Death Anniversary

We lost him two years ago on this day (24th Oct 2013) at the age of 94. He was the last of the male singers generation that ruled the Hindi films from 1940s: Mohammad Rafi, Mukesh, Kishore Kumar and Mahendra Kapoor. Of course, before them, KL Saigal and Pankaj Mullick ruled.

Classical Raaga based songs was his forte’. Today morning, I was listening to his best: Jhanak jhanak tori baaje paayaliya based on Raag Darbari Kanada, Tal Tintal.

One of the greatest mortifications for him was to win over (in the 1956 movie Basant Bahar) a dual with the great Bhimsen Joshi (yes I am talking about the song Ketaki gulaab juhi champakaban phuule in Raag Basant Bahar, Tal Ektal.

Bhimsen Joshi and Manna Dey with Shailendra and Shankar Jaikishan rehearsing the song: Ketaki gulab juhi (Pic courtesy: twimg.com)

However, strange are the ways of the Hindi films. He lost to Kishore Kumar’s antics in the 1968 movie Padosan on a semi-classical and comic song Ek chatur naar!

The lyrics of the song were penned by our current great lyricist: Rajendra Krishan.

Please enjoy and recall how well Manna Dey, a great classical vocalist, adapted so easily to comedy (this is not the only song that he has done in a comic setting!): Ek chatur naar kar ke singaar….

Song #74
Remembering Manna Dey on His Death Anniversary

Dekh Kabira Roya was the 1957 movie for the songs of which (based on Raagas) that Manna Dey became famous for the first time.

(Pic courtesy: tansen.co)

Even though I have given this song earlier, I am repeating it.

Madan Mohan composed it in the Raaga of late evening named Raag Rageshri or Raageshwari. The Tal is Kaherava.

Please don’t forget that Dekh Kabira Roya was one of the finest satirical comedies or comic satires that you can see in Hindi films.

Please enjoy Manna Dey sing another of Rajinder Krishan‘s marvels: Kaun aaya mere man ke dwaare….

(kaun aayaa mere man ke dvaare,
paayal kii jhanakaar liye ) – 2
kaun aayaa …

(aa.Nkh na jaane, dil pahachaane

Song #75
Remembering Manna Dey on His Death Anniversary

Mohammad Rafi and Manna Dey

And for the last song of the evening penned by Rajinder Krishan and sung by Manna Dey whom we are remembering on his death anniversary today, I turn to the 1969 movie Sachaai starring Shammi Kapoor, Sanjeev Kumar and Sadhana. Mohammad Rafi sang for Shammi Kapoor and Manna Dey sang for Sanjeev Kumar.

Shankar Jaikishan who have composed the best of Shammi Kapoor songs have composed this too.

Please enjoy: Ai dost mere maine duniya dekhi hai….

Hence, in Part III of this tribute to a great lyricist Rajinder Krishan, I have given you another twenty-four songs, making it a total of 75 songs in three parts. We have only one more part (Part IV, that is) left cover the remaining about twenty-five songs.

I hope you have liked my choices so far. Do leave your comments.
