Pyar Ka Mousum is a 1969 movie directed, produced and written by Nasir Hussain which stared Shashi Kapoor and Asha Parekh. The music is composed by Rahul Dev Burman and lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

This is one of the few records that I can remember from my childhood and I know for a fact that my mother wore out the needle of our JVC record player from playing this record over and over again. Her favourite song was ‘Ni Sultana Re’ which at that time, then became my favourite song by proxy – at that age, I did not have a choice! But I can understand why she liked the song. It has a lovely tune that changes tempo and great lyrics to boot (lyrics available HERE).

Now however, I tend to favour my dad’s favourite from the album – the Mohammad Rafi’s version of ‘Tum Bin Jaon Kahan’. It has a beautiful haunting melody and such romantic lyrics. This is my weak attempt (with my limited comprehension of Hindi) of translating the first and second verse of this song.

Tum bin jaon kahan x2Where would I go without you x2?
Ki duniya mein aake, kuch na phir, chaaha kabhi, tumko chaahke,Since coming into this world, I have not desired anything/anyone after desiring you.
Tum bin.
Without you.

Reh bhi sako gaye kaise, ho ke mujhse juda.How can you live separated from me?
Phat jaaye gi deewarein, sun ke meri sada.The barriers will tumble upon hearing my call,
Aana hoga tumhe mere liye saathi meri suni raha keAnd you will have to come to me, you, my companion of this lonely journey,

Now isn’t that romantic? Sigh!

Overall, I give this album 4 stars out of 5.

The full tracks of this album (in movie order) are:

1. Tum Bin Jaon Kaha 1 – Kishore Kumar
2. Ni Sultana Re – Mohd Rafi and Lata Mageshkar
3. Aap Si Miliye – Lata Mangeshkar
4. Aap Chahen Mujko – Lata Mangeshkar
5. Main Na Miloongi – Lata Mangeshkar
6. Tum Bin Jaon Kaha 2 – Mohd Rafi
7. Che Khush Nazare – Mohd Rafi
8. Na Ja Mere Hamdam – Lata Mangeshkar
9. Tum Bin Jaon Kaha 3 – Mohd Rafi (movie version)

Oo, a Burman score I hadn't heard! Good stuff, thanks for sharing it.

My pleasure PC.

I will try to post records that are not listed on your blog...no point in duplicating, although I must admit, most of my records are duplicate of yours.

We seem to share the same taste in music (most of the time anyway)!

Very nice blog. Thank you for these songs. Would it be okay to request 192 Kbps uploads for this and other future albums?
Also thanks for Parveen Babi article - I didn't know all those details about her.

I wouldn't worry too much about dublicate postings; different people will be drawn to different blogs and all that. The Parties, Sarees and Melodies blog and mine have overlapped several times, once even to the point of us purposely posting the same soundtrack on the same day. Plus, I always enjoy reading other peoples' take on stuff I've done earlier.

Hi anon

Thanks for the comment. I am not very savvy when it comes to stuff like this. Any hints on how to do this is appreciated.

Thanks PC, I'll keep that in mind.

Blago, you are welcome.
