tum mujhe bhool bhi jaao

October 30th, 2009

A beautiful, yes an extremely beautiful song from movie “Didi” sung expertly by Sudha Malhotra and Mukesh and composed by Sudha Malhotra as well, this remains one of my favourite Sahir songs.  Video attached at the bottom:

Sudha:
tum mujhe bhool bhi jaao to ye haq hai tumko
meri baat aur hai maiN ne to muhabbat ki hai

mere dil ki mere jazabaat ki qeemat kyaa hai
uljhe uljhe se Khayaalaat ki qeemat kyaa hai
maiN ne kyuuN pyaar kiya, tumne na kyuuN pyaar kiya
in pareshaan savaalaat kii qeemat kyaa hai
tum jo ye bhi na bataao to ye haq hai tumko
meri baat aur hai maiN ne to muhabbat ki hai
tum mujhe bhool bhi jaao to ye haq hai tumko

Mukesh:
zindagii sirf muhabbat nahiiN kuchh aur bhi hai
zulf-o-ruKhsaar ki jannat nahiiN kuchh aur bhi hai
bhookh aur pyaas kii maarii hui is duniyaa meiN
ishq hi ek haqeeqat nahiiN kuchh aur bhi hai
tum agar aaNkh churaao to ye haq hai tumko
maiN ne tumse hi nahiiN, sab se muhabbat ki hai

Sudha:
tumko duniyaa ke Gham-o-dard se fursat na sahi
sabse ulfat sahii, mujhse hi muhabbat na sahi
maiN tumhaari huuN, yahi mere liye kyaa kam hai
tum mere hoke raho, ye merii qismat na sahii
aur bhi dil ko jalaao to ye haq hai tumko
meri baat aur hai, maiN ne to muhabbat ki hai

tum mujhe bhool bhi jaao to ye haq hai tumko

Teri aawaaz (Nazm)

October 29th, 2009

Another beautiful nazm entitled “Teri Aawaz” by Sahir Ludhianvi.  One can guess who he wrote this nazm for based on his story… but I won’t be saying any names here :-)  Enjoy this beautiful Urdu nazm written by the magician:

raat sunsaan thi, bojhal thiiN fazaa kii saanseiN
rooh par chhaye the benaam GhamoN ke saaye
dil ko ye zid thii k tuu aaye tassalli dene
merii koshish thii k kambaKht ko neeNd aa jaaye

der tak aaNkhoN meiN chubhtii rahii taaroN ki chamak
der tak zahn sulagtaa rahaa tanhaaii meiN
apne Thukraaye hue dost kii pursish ke liye
tu na aayii magar is raat kii pahnaaii meiN

yuuN achaanak tirii aavaaz kahiiN se aayii
jaise parbat ka jigar cheer ke jharnaa phooTe
yaa zameenoN kii muhabbat meiN taRap kar naagaah
aasmaanoN se koi shauKh sitaaraa TooTe

shahd saa ghul gayaa talKhaabaa-e-tanhaaii meiN
rang saa phail gayaa dil ke siyaah Khaane meiN
der tak yuuN tirii mastaanaa sadaayeiN goonjeiN
jis taraH phool chaTakne lageiN veeraane meiN

tuu bahut door kisii anjuman-e-naaz meiN thii
phir bhi mahsoos kiyaa maiN ne k tuu aayii hai
aur naGhmoN meiN chhupaa kar mire khoye hue Khwaab
merii rooThii huii neendoN ko manaa laayii hai

raat kii satH par ubhre tire chahre ke naqoosh
vahii chup chaap sii aaNkheiN vahii saadaa si nazar
vahii Dhalkaa huaa aaNchal vahii raftaar ka Kham
vahii rah rah ke lachaktaa huaa naazuk paikar

tuu mire paas na thii phir bhi sahar hone tak
teraa har saaNs mire jism  ko chhooo kar guzraa
qatra qatra tire deedaar kii shabnam Tapkii
lamha lamha tirii Khusbuu se muattar guzraa

ab yahii hai tujhe manzoor to ai jaan-e-qaraar
maiN tirii raah na dekhouNgaa siyah raatoN meiN
DhooND leiNgi mirii tarsii huii nazreiN tujh ko
naGhma-o-sh’er kii umRii huii barsaatoN meiN

ab tiraa pyaar sataayegaa to merii hastii
tirii mastii bharii aavaaz meiN Dhal jaayegii
aur ye rooH jo tere liye bechain sii hai
geet ban kar tire hoNToN pe machal jaayegii

tire naGhmaat tire husn kii ThanDak lekar
mere tapte hue maahaul meiN aa jaayeiNge
chand ghaRiyoN ke liye hoN k hamesha ke liye
merii jaagii huii raatoN ko sulaa jaayeiNge

Kabhi Kabhi – recitation by Sahir

October 22nd, 2009

There are a few videos out on Youtube with Sahir reciting his own poetry.  Here’s one for the readers of this blog (posted by 4RKnet on Youtube)


Gham is qadr baRhe – pyasa

October 21st, 2009

This is more of a qit’a but I’ll add it in the “ghazal / song” category.

As far as I’m concerned, I adore this qit’a.  It’s from the movie Pyasa (1957, Guru Dutt), exceptionally sung by Mohd. Rafi

Gham is qadr baRhe k maiN ghabraa ke pee gayaa
is dil ki bebasii pe, taras khaa ke pee gayaa!

Thukraa rahaa thaa mujhko baRi der se jahaaN
maiN aaj sab jahaan ko Thukraa ke pee gayaa!!!
