Lag ja gale – Woh Kaun Thi (1964)

This gem is from another movie Woh Kaun Thi (1964) directed by Raj Khosla, featuring Manoj Kumar and Sadhana.  Music is by Madan Mohan and the lyrics have been penned by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan . Sung by the Nightingale of India – Lata Mangeshkar.

Lyrics:

Lag jaa gale ke fir ye haseen raat ho na ho
Shaayad fir is janam mein mulaqaat ho na ho

Hum ko milee hain aaj ye ghadiyaan naseeb se
Jee bhar ke dekh lijiye  humko kareeb se
Fir aap ke naseeb mein ye baat ho na ho
Shaayad fir is janam mein mulaqaat ho na ho

Paas aiye ke hum nahin aayenge baar baar
Bahein gale mein daal ke, hum ro le jaar jaar
Aakhon se fir ye pyaar ki barsaat ho na ho
Shaayad fir is janam mein mulaqaat ho na ho

Teri aankhon ke siva duniya mein rakha kya hai- Chirag (1969)

Today I’ll present two evergreen songs created by the legendary Madan Mohan.

This gem is from the movie Chirag (1969) directed by Raj Khosla, featuring Sunil Dutt and Asha Parekh. The song has been sung for the most part by Mohd. Rafi and also by Lata Mangeshkar.

Lyrics penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Teri aankhon ke siva duniya mein rakha kya hai

Ye uthe subah chale Ye jhunke shaam dhale
Mera jeena mera marna inhi palkon ke tale

Palkon ki galiyon mein chehre baharon ke haste huye
Ae mere khwabon ke kya kya nagar is mein baste huye

In mein mere aanewale zamane ki tasveer hai
Chahat ke kajal se lkhi huyi meri taqdeer hai

Main hoon kahin inka saya mere dil se jata nahi
Inke siva ab to kuchh bhi nazar mujhko aata nahi

Chandan Sa Badan – Saraswati Chandra (1968)

The first Hindi film to win the National award for Best Music, Saraswati Chandra, was scored by the brother duo of Kalyanji-Anandji. Here is the classic – Chandan Sa Badan, rendered by Mukesh, from this magnum opus. Incidentally, this song was also rendered by Lata Mangeshkar as can be found here.

Lyrics: Indeevar

Chandan sa badan chanchal chitawan
Dheere se tera ye muskana
Mujhe dosh na dena jagwalon
Ho jaoon agar main deewana

Ye kaam kaman bhawe teri
Palko ke kinare kajarare
Maathepar sindoori suraj
Honthhon pe dahakte angaarein
Saaya bhi jo tera padh jaye
Aabaad ho dil ka viraana

Tan bhi sundar, mann bhi sundar
Tu sundarta ki murat hai
Kisee aur ko shayad kam hogi
Mujhe teri bahot zarurat hai
Pahale bhi bahot main tarsa hoon
Tu aur na dil ko tarsana

Dil Tadap Tadap Ke – Madhumati (1958)

As much as Mukesh’s success and fame was due to his association with Raj Kapoor and Shankar-Jaikishan, several of the classic songs of his were from other composers, notably Salil Chowdhury. Here is a song from the Bimal Roy film, Madhumati, where Mukesh sings for Dilip Kumar, in duet with Lata Mangeshkar singing for Vyjanthimala.

Lyrics: Shailendra

Dil tadap tadap ke keh raha hai aa bhi jaa
Tu humse aankh na chura, tujhe kasam hai aa bhi jaa
Tu nahin to ye bahaar kya bahaar hai
Gul nahin khile to tera intezaar hai
Ke tera intezaar hai

Dil dhadak dhadak ke de rahaa hai ye sada
Tumhari ho chukin hun main
Tumhare saath hun sada

Tumse meri zindagi ka ye shringaar hai
Jee rahi hun main ke mujhko tumse pyaar hai
Ke mujhko tumse pyaar hai

Muskuraate pyaar ka asar hai har kahin
Dil kahaan hai hum kidhar hain kuchh khabar nahin
Kidhar hai kuchh khabar nahin

Na Jaane Kyon – Chhoti Si Baat (1975)

Salil Chowdhury and Lata continued to regale listeners well into the seventies, as this song from the Basu Chatterjee film, Chhoti Si Baat(1975) – picturized on Vidya Sinha and Amol Palekar, suggests.

Lyrics: Yogesh

Na Jaane Kyun, Hota Hai Yeh Zindagi Ke Saath
Achaanak Yeh Mann, Kisike Jaane Ke Baad
Kare Phir Uski Yaad Chhoti Chhoti Si Baat

Jo Anjaan Pal, Dhal Gaye Kal, Aaj Woh
Rang Badal Badal, Mann Ko Machal Machal
Rahen Hai Chal, Na Jaane Kyun Woh Anjaan Pal
Saje Bhi Na Mere, Naino Mein
Toote Re Hai Re Sapno Ke Mahal

Wohi Hai Dagar, Wohi Hai Safar
Hai Nahin Paas Mere Magar Ab Mera Humsafar
Idhar Udhar Dhoonde Nazar Wohi Hai Dagar
Kahan Gayi Shaamein, Madhbhari
Woh Mere, Mere Woh Din Gaye Kidhar

Na Jiya Lage Na – Anand (1970)

If Madhumati introduced the genius of Salil Chowdhury to Hindi film-goers, then the soundtrack of Anand(1970) – the Hrishikesh Mukherjee film, cemented his reputation as a music composer who created classic songs, even while continuing his experimentation with the use of western orchestra in Indian music.

This is again a tune, used in both Bengali and Hindi songs. The Bengali song “Na Mono Lage Na” was again rendered by Lata Mangeshkar as in this film -picturized on Sumita Sanyal.

Lyrics:

Naa jiyaa laage naa
Tere binaa meraa kahin jiyaa laage naa

Jeena bhuule the kahaan yaad nahin
Tujhko paya hai jahaan, saans phir aayi wahin
Zindagi tere sivaa haay bhaaye naa

Piya teri baavri se raha jaaye na

Tum agar jaao kabhi jaao kahin
Waqt se kehna zara woh thaher jaaye wahin
Woh ghadi wahin rahe naa jaaye na

O Sajna Barkha Bahar Aayi – Parakh (1960)

Salil Chowdhury created some awesome music – which he utilized in both Bengali and Hindi. One of these is the gem “Na jeona, rajani akhono baki” sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Bengali. The same tune was used for the Bimal Roy film, Parakh (1960) in this song, again by Lata – picturized here on Sadhana and Vasant Choudhury. Incidentally, Salil Chowdhury was also the writer for this story.

Lyrics:

O sajanaa, barkhaa bahaar aai
Ras ki phuhaar laayi, ankhiyon me pyaar laayi

Tumko pukaare mere mann kaa papiharaa
Meethi Meethi agnii mein, jale moraa jiyaraa

Aisi rimjhim mein o saajan, pyaase pyaase mere nayan
Tere hi, khwaab mein, kho gaye
Saanvli saloni ghataa, jab jab chhayi
Ankhiyon men rainaa gayi, nindiyaa na aayi

Aaja Re Pardesi – Madhumati (1958)

The Madhumati soundtrack was one of the masterpieces created by Salil Chowdhury in this Bimal Roy film. The haunting Aaja Re Pardesi was rendered perfectly by Lata Mangeshkar, picturized on Dilip Kumar and Vyjanthimala.

Lyrics: Shailendra

Aa ja re pardesi

Main to kab se khadi is paar, ye ankhiyaan
Thak gayi panth nihaar, aaja re pardesi

Main diye ki aisi baati, jal na saki jo bujh bhi na paati
Aa mil mere jeevan saathi, O

Tum sang janam janam ke phere, bhool gaye kyoon saajan mere
Tadpat hoon main saanj savere, O

Main nadiya phir bhi main pyaasi, bhed ye gehra baat zaraa si
Bin tere har saans udaasi, O

Nainon mein badra chhaye – Mera Saaya (1966)

Mera Saaya (1966) had an awesome soundtrack, composed by Madan Mohan. One of these is this classical raga based gem sung by Lata, picturized on Sunil Dutt and Sadhana.

Lyrics: Raja Mehdi Ali Khan

Raga: Bhimpalasi Thaat: Kafi

Nainon mein badraa chaye bijlii si chamke aaye
Aise mein balam mohe darwaa lagale

Madiraa mein doobii ankhiyaan Chanchal hai donon sakhiyaan
Jalte rahenge tohe Palkon ki pyaarii bathiyaan
Sharmaa ke denge tohe madiraa ke pyaale

Prem deewaani hun main Sapnon ki raani hun main
Pichle janam se teri prem kahaanii hun main
Aa is janam mein bhi tu apna bana le

Zara Si Aahat Hoti Hai – Haqeeqat (1964)

This classic by Madan Mohan and Lata Mangeshkar is from the film Haqeeqat (1964), picturized on Priya Rajvansh.

Lyrics: Kaifi Azmi

Zara Si Aahat Hoti Hai To Dil Sochta Hai
Kahin Yeh Woh To Nahin

Chhup Ke Seene Mein Koi Jaise Sadaa Deta Hai
Shaam Se Pehle Diya Dil Ka Jalaa Deta Hai
Hai Usi Ki Yeh Sadaa, Hai Usi Ki Yeh Adaa

Shakl Phirti Hai Nigahon Mein Wohi Pyaari Si
Meri Nas Nas Mein Machalne Lagi Chingari Si
Chhoo Gayi Jism Mera, Kiske Daaman Ki Hawa
