On this occasion, I wish you to read my favourite old Hindi love songs.
It is definitely difficult to define Love in simple sentence. Love can not bound by the term relationship, it can be for family, friends, pets even. Love is natural affection created by Great "God" to make the world going ! When somebody loves him/her, he/she remembers him/her when he/she is feeling low and also when he/she is feeling top of the world as well !! Love surely needs 100% involvement, 100% trust, 100% willingness to sacrifice if need be, with 0% ego or selfishness. Hope you agree with me.
So, here are my fav.twenty Hindi Love songs from list of thousands-
1) Ye sama, sama hai ye pyarka, kisi ke Intjarka,
Dil na churale kahin mera, mausam bahar ka......
Picturised on cute, emotional Nanda in Jab Jab Phul Khile. Nanda was seen so involved in this song that she could not think of someone (Shashi) watching her dance in dreamy mood. She is best ever seen in this slow dance.
2) Aaiye meherban, baithiye jane jan,
houkse lijiye ji, Ishq ki Imtihan............
Divine beauty, without which review will be incomplete.None other than, Madhubala who in her unique style does slow dance. This dance is yet another proof that slow dances can be found more attractive than fast dances. Just can’t miss it.
3) Piya tose naina lage re, naina lage re,
Jane kya ho ab aage re, ab aage re,
Piya tose naina lage re, naina lage re,
Piya, O, ho piya,
OO, OO piya, O, ho piya............
Simple and sweet Wahidaji at her best in ’’Guide’’. Stage and her make up/dresses are changed in every stanza which makes us understand passing time progressively. Great involvement.
4) Tere mere sapne, ab ek rang hai,
jaha bhi le jayega re, hum sang hai,
O,O, tere mere sapne.................
Once again my fav.Guide. Too lovely song full of emotions. Rafi sab the Great !! Vahidaji hats off !!.
5) Ehsan tera hoga mujhpar, dil chahta hai jo,
kahene do, mujhe tumse mohobbat ho gayi hai mujhe,
palkon ki chaw mein rahene do..........
I like Rafi sab singing this song than in Lataji voice. Dear Shammiji has performed it very effectively to feel as if he is singing.
6) Bahot Shukriya ssssss, badi meherbani sssss,
meri jindagi mein hujur aap aaye..........
(sssssss stands for aalap extending last alphabet)
Joy Mukherjee addressing this song to Sadhana in ’’Ek musafir Ek hasina’’. Sadhanaji saying,’’Muze dar hai muzmein gurur aa na jaye,lagu zumne main, surur aa na jaye.........’’ I like these lines more. Excellent use of musical instruments and nice lyrics too.
7) Pyar huwa, Ikrar huwa hai,
Pyar se phir kyu darta hai dil,
kahata hain dil, rasta mushkil,
malum nahi hai kahan manjil..........
Best screen pair ever seen according to me, need I mention ? Raj Kapoor (ji) and Nargis (ji) excellent always in all love scenes/songs. You know, black Umbrella made this song picturisation more effective.
8) Lagi chutena, hai, lagi chutena,
ab to sanam ssssss, chahe jaye jiyasssssss, teri kasam...........
I remember this song due to it’s music esp. harmonium used beautifully. Pl. tell me on whom it is picturised, I haven’t watched this song since long.
9) Tu mera chand, main teri chandni,
O sssssssss, Osssssssss, OO, OO, O, Nahi dilka lagana koi dillagi, koi dillagi......
It was on Radio Binaca Geet mala famous song which Amin Sayaniji used to announce. Suraiyyaji’s voice made this song more attractive. Film was ’’Dillagi’’.
10) Tu kahan ye bata sssssss , Is nashili ratmein sss,
mane na mera dil diwana,
hai, mane na mera dil diwana............
Dev sab finding Nutan his lover in pahadi Ilaka (rocky area) of Darjeeling in ’’Tere Ghar ke Samne’’. Echo sound used brilliantly.
11) Jara samne to aao chaliye,
chup chup chalnemein kya raj hai,
tu chup na sakega parmatma,
meri atma ki ye aawaj hai.............
Actually, this song is addressed to Him i.e. God but these lines suit to your loved one perfectly. Perhaps telepathy implied in it, I mean Aatma ki Aawaj, appealed me most.
12) Jo wada kiya woh, nibhana padega,
Roke jamana chahe,
Roke khudai, tumko aana padega............
From Taj Mahal, picturised on Beena Roy and Pradeep Kumar. Proved Beena Roy as successful actress.
13) Pav chu lene do, phulonko Inayat hogi,
Humko dar hai, ke ye tohin-e-mohobbat hogi,
Decently picturised once again from Taj Mahal on Beena Roy and Pradeep Kumar. I liked Beenaji walking just through the flowers spread over floor (err), trying not to put feet on them. Song is sweet no doubt.
14)Jindagi bhar nahi bhulegi, woh barsat ki rat,
Ek anjan hasina se mulakat ki rat.............
Barsat aur Pyar nice equation seen many times in Hindi films. Rafiji made it divine. Madhubala too good in this song in rains that too in black and white. Isn’t it great?
15) Ye chandsa roshan chehra,
julfonka rang sunhara,
ye zil si neeli aankhen,
koi raj hai in mein gahera,
Taarif karun kya uski, jisne tumhe banaya...........
Most romantic song with fabulous rhythm, I ever heard which is picturised on my fav.Shammiji with Sharmilaji. I think she was introduced in "Kashmir Ki Kali" film first time. What an introduction !
16) Deewana huwa badal,
Sawan ki ghata chayi, ye dekhke dil zuma sss,
Li pyar ne Angdayee sss, Diwana huwa badal...........
Rafi sab with Aashaji making best combination in "Kashmir ki Kali".
17) Abhi na jao chodkar,
yeh Dil abhi bhara nahi.......
"Bura na mano bat ka, ye pyar hai geela nahi" Kya bat hai !! Jana bhi hai, rukna bhi hai, Shikwa bhi hai, pyar bhi hai. Jaise pani mein Tarang uthe ho, aaise emotions bikhare hain.
18) Do sitaronka jameenpar hai milan aaj ki rat,
Muskurata hai ummidon ka chaman aaj ki rat ssssss...
Film Kohinoor and Rafiji making song divine.
19)Sasonki tal par, dhadkan ki tal ka sssss,
Dil ki pukar ka, Rang bhare pyar ka sssss,
geet gaya pathharone........
Love can make stones sing a song. Picturisation of this song is really must see. Rajshree and Jitendra in his earlier days.
20) Sakhi ri mora man uljhe, tan dole,
Man uljhe, tan dole sssss,
Ab chain pade tab hi, jab unse milan howe,
sakhi ri mora...........
Vaijayantimalaji shown as a expert dancer in Amrapali, singing this song remembering her Sainik who in fact was actually King of different kingdom (Sunil Dutt). I like Vaijantimalaji’s all dances and this song has no dance performance, it is just her own mood.
Among new songs, I can immediately recall few like Ek ladki ko dekha to aaisa laga (1942- A Love story), Bahon ke darmiyan
(khamoshi), Ye hasin wadiya, ye khula aasman (Roja).
By this time, I am sure, you have hummed most of the above songs while reading. If yes, I am not at all surprised.
