Kahin Door Jab Din Dhal Jaaye – Anand (1970)

Another of the gems from the association of Mukesh with Salil Chowdhury, from the Hrishikesh Mukherjee film, Anand.

Lyrics: Yogesh

Kahin door jab din dhal jaaye
Saanjh ki dulhan badan churaye
Chupke se aaye
Mere Khayalon ke aangan mein
Koi sapnon ke deep jalaye, deep jalaye

Kabhi yunhi, jab hui, bojhal saansein
Bhar aayi baithe baithe, jab yunhi aankhen
Tabhi machla ke, pyaar se chal ke
Chhue koi mujh par nazar na aaye, nazar na aaye

Kahin to ye, dil kabhi, mil nahin paate
Kahin se nikal aaye, janmon ke naate
Ghani thi uljhan, bairi apna mann
Apna hi hoke sahe dard paraye, dard paraye

Dil jaane, mere saare, bhed ye gehre
Ho gaye kaise mere, sapne sunehre
Ye mere sapne, yahi to hai apne
Mujhse judaa na honge inke ye saaye, inke ye saaye

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
