Lyrics: Kaifi Azmi

kuch dil ne kaha, kuchh bhi nahin
aisi bhi baatein hoti hain
kuch dil ne suna, kuchh bhi nahin
aisi bhi baatein hoti hain

leta hai dil angadaeeyaan, is dil ko samjhaaye koi
armaan na aankhe khol de, ruswaa na ho jaye koi
palkon ki thandi sej par, sapnon ki pariyaan soti hain
aisi bhi baatein hoti hain

dil ki tasalli ke liye, jhoothi chamak jhootha nikhaar
jeewan to soona hi raha, sab samajhe aayi bahaar
kaliyon se koi poochta , hasti hain ya roti hain
aisi bhi baatein hoti hain

Hemant Kumar & Lata - Jaag Dard-e-Ishq Jaag - Anarkali [1953]

Anarkali" (Hindi:, Urdu: ) is a 1953 film based on the historical legend of the Mughal emperor Jehangir. Starring Pradeep Kuma and Bina Rai. As per the legend Jehangir revolted against his father Akbar over his love for a common girl called Anarkali. It was the top grossing Hindi film in the year of its release, and one of the biggest Hindi film hits in its decade [1]. Another film on the same theme was Mughal-E-Azam, made in 1960, which was again a major commercial and critical hit.

The movie today is mainly remembered for its outstanding musical score. C.Ramachandra came up with what was perhaps the best musical score of his career. The movie has many famous songs, songs that became part of the collective psyche of Indian music lovers. Lata Mangeshkar, the queen of Indian melody, who was already a phenomenon, reached even greater heights with her songs for this movie which can only be described angelic. Most memorable among the movie's songs are "Yeh Zindagi usiki hai(Lata),Mohabbt aise dhadkan hai(Lata),Mujhse mat pooch meri ishq main(Lata),Jaag dard-e-ishq jaag(Lata-Hemant),O aasmanwale(Lata) etc..

Hemanta Kumar Mukhopadhyay (Bangla:Hemonto Kumar Mukhopaddhae) also known as Hemanta Mukherjee (June 16, 1920 - September 26, 1989) was an Indian singer, composer and producer. He sang in Hindi films under the name Hemant Kumar.
....In September 1989, Hemanta travelled to Dhaka, Bangladesh to receive the Michael Madhusudan Award. He performed a concert in Dhaka as well. Immediately after returning from this trip, Hemanta suffered a major cardiac arrest on September 26th and breathed his last at 11:15 pm in a nursing home in South Calcutta. Interestingly, even 15 years after Hemanta's death, Gramophone Company of India releases at least one album by Hemanta every year, repackaging his older songs, because of the commercial viability of his songs. Hemanta's legacy still lives on through the numerous songs he has recorded, music he has composed and through many male singers in Bengal and the rest of India who continue to imitate his singing style...

She has also won four Filmfare Best Female Playback Awards. In 1969, she made the unusual gesture of giving up Filmfare Best Female Playback Award, in order to promote fresh talent.
