Movie – Kisise Na Kehna (1983)
The song, Tum jabse jeevan mein,, was featured in a Hrishikesh Mukherjee-directed Sahyog Chitra’s comic caper Kisise na kehna (1983), which was produced by Jaywant Pathare and Ashok Raut. The movie starred, Deepti Naval, Farooq Sheikh, Utpal Dutt, Deven Verma, Saeed Jaffrey, etc.
Ramesh (Farooq Sheikh), the son of a devout widower Kailashpati (Utpal Dutt), and Dr. Ramola (Deepti Naval) are in love with each other. Having ‘seen’ several modern educated girls, Kailashpati decides that he wants only a village girl, who knows about the Indian Culture but not a single word of English.
Ramesh requests the help of his father’s friend, Lalaji (Saeed Jaffrey), who presents Ramola as a village belle Rama. Lalaji also shares a list of questions for her to learn by rote just in case Kailashpati would ask them. Ramola ‘Rama’ manages to get into Kailashpati’s good books and Ramola gets to marry Ramesh. After the wedding, every step of the way Ramola feels guilty that she is cheating a good man.
One day, Kailashpati tells Ramesh to take Ramola to ‘her’ village. Ramola fears that they would have to go to the remote village, again. But, Ramesh cajoles her into getting down at a station before the village and stay at a good hotel. The couple gets down at a station and Ramesh decides to stay at Honey Moon Hotel, which has been rechristened as Hanuman Hotel! The hotel owner (Yunus Pervez) gets suspicious of the couple since Ramesh gives a different name to be written on the register and also carelessly asks him to pass on the message to Lalaji that they are in this hotel, giving their real names. The hotel owner does not call Lalaji. He calls the police, instead. Blissfully ignorant of the twist of fate, the couple goes out on a trip and Ramola sings this song at this point in the movie.
Song – Tum jabse jeevan mein
The lyrics of the song, Tum jabse jeevan mein,, were penned by Yogesh and they were set to tune by Bappi Lahiri.
The song goes thus, “Since when you came into my life as a breath of fragrant air, I don’t realize when the night ends or the dusk arrives.”
Video – Tum jabse jeevan mein
The cinematography is by Jaywant Pathare.
The video opens with shots of beautiful scenery and the music beginning. Deepti Naval and Farooq Sheikh are walking in this place having scenic beauty. She begins to sing this song. They move around the place as she continues to sing. Soon, the song peters out and the video also ends as they walk away from the place, hand-in-hand.
This song was sung Asha Bhonsle for Deepti Naval. Farooq Sheikh looks on.
There is no influence of any culture on this song. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
