Melodies From The Golden Era of Music in Bollywood!

Lyrics(Hindi)

अजीब दास्तान है ये, कहाँ शुरू कहाँ ख़तम
ये मंज़िलें हैं कौनसी, न वो समझ सके न हम

ये रोशनी के साथ क्यों, धुआँ उठाचिराग से
ये ख्वाब देखती हूँ मैं के जाग पड़ी हूँ ख्वाब से

मुबारक तुम्हे के तुम किसी के नूर हो गये
किसी के इतने पास हो के सब से दूर हो गये!

किसी का प्यार लेके तुम नया जहाँ बसाओगे
ये शाम जब भी आएगी, तुम हमको याद आओगे

Melodies From Bollywood Music’s Golden Era!

Movie: Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958)
Singer: Ashok Kumar, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey
Music Director: Sachin Dev Burman

Lyrics by : Majrooh Sultanpuri

This playful song is kind of title song for this film. I shared another comedy song from this film the other day–this one is more about exuberant life. Kishor Kumar’s playful yodeling and naughty yelling marks this song as well. Manna Dey’s interludes make it very enjoyable. Their pithy sayings are very beautiful and enjoyable. The Gaadi(Motorcar) is called so though it moves–the play on word Gaadi(which actually means something embedded inside a surface or merged into the earth) has been stressed.

Link for song: Youtube

Movie/Album: Pakeezah

Release: 1972

Music Director: Ghulam Mohammed

Lyrics: Kaifi Azmi

Singers: Lata Mangeshkar

Lyrics(Translated) 

I met someone casually strolling on my way,

My night stopped then and there and isn’t moving anymore,

That which I couldn’t say, people are saying,

Though I tried to ward it off and forget,

My story has become a fairy tale by now,

 

This night of waiting would pass away in the end,

These lamps are also dying along with me after having burnt for so long…

This song as compared to the last one has very few beautiful words in lyrics by Kaifi Azmi but its beauty and rhythm is remarkable. Lata Mangeshkar’s playback singing and Meena Kumari’s saturnine and sentimental act along with the train’s whistle in the end make this song a memorable one.

Lyrics in Hindi

चलते चलते,
यूँही कोई मिल गया था, सरे राह चलते चलते
वही थम के रह गयी हैं, मेरी रात ढलते ढलते

जो कही गयी ना मुझ से, वो ज़माना कह रहा हैं
के फ़साना बन गयी है, मेरी बात टलते टलते

शब-ए-इंतज़ार आखिर, कभी होगी मुक्तसर भी
ये चिराग बुझ रहे है, मेरे साथ जलते जलते...

Lyrics(Hindi Courtesy:Here)

ना तुम हमे जानो,
ना हम तुम्हे जाने
मगर लगता है कुछ ऐसा,
मेरा हमदम मिल गया

ये मौसम ये रात चुप है
वो होठों की बात चुप है
खामोशी सुनाने लगी है दास्ताँ

ये मौसम ये रात चुप है
वो होठों की बात चुप है
खामोशी सुनाने लगी है दास्ताँ

नजर बन गयी है दिल की जबां

ना तुम हमे जानो,
ना हम तुम्हे जाने
मगर लगता है कुछ ऐसा,
मेरा हमदम मिल गया

मोहब्बत के मोड़ पे हम
मिले सबको छोड़के हम
धड़कते दिलों का लेके, ये कारवाँ

मोहब्बत के मोड़ पे हम
मिले सबको छोड़के हम
धड़कते दिलों का लेके, ये कारवाँ

चले आज दोनों जाने कहा

ना तुम हमे जानो,
ना हम तुम्हे जाने
मगर लगता है कुछ ऐसा,
मेरा हमदम मिल गया

Aur Ho Aur Ho Saans Ka Shor Ho!

I went to watch Rockstar in 2011 when it was released with my cook in Bangalore. This film was so boring that I left hall long before it ended. Heroine falls sick and hero visits her, she repels him and then again falls sick and it keeps happening. Relations are complicated but it was beyond me to keep waiting till climax. The cook couldn’t understand why I left hall early despite having spent a large sum for two tickets. I didn’t bother to explain him. After many years I downloaded an album of songs sung by Mohit Chauhan and many of them were from Rockstar. As I kept listening to them they kept growing on me. It has such beautiful gems that it might be one of the best Hindi film albums of the last decade.

The song below always used to come towards the end in the audio album and it has fascinating lyrics by Irshad Kamil. I hope you will enjoy listening it.
