Song-Dekhi Zamane Ki Yaari ‘????? ??? ???? ????’ ,
Singer – Mohammad Rafi
Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi ,Music- S.D. Burman
Movie-Kaagaz Ke Phool,
(Hindi: ????? ?? ???; English: Paper Flowers), is a 1959 classic Hindi film produced and directed by Guru Dutt, who also played the lead role in the film.

The film was a box office disaster of its time but was later resurrected as a world cinema cult classic in the 1980s. The film’s music was composed by S. D. Burman and the notable lyrics were written by Kaifi Azmi, giving hits like Waqt ne Kiya Kya Haseen Situm, sung by Geeta Dutt.

In the 2002 Sight & Sound critics’ and directors’ poll, Kaagaz Ke Phool was ranked at #160 among the greatest films of all time.[1]

Motivated by the success of Pyaasa, Guru Dutt embarked on the creation of yet another of his socially challenging movie, Kaagaz Ke Phool. The theme and tone on this movie were ages ahead of the Indian audience of the 50s who were used to simpler plots and storylines. The underlying tones of the film were complex and story was controversial for the time.

Considered one of Guru Dutt’s finest film by many, Kaagaz Ke Phool was a commercial disaster when it was first released. At the film’s premiere, Dr Rajendra Prasad, then President of India and invited chief guest, walked out of the cinema hall deeply offended[citation needed].
Audiences in Delhi’s Regal cinema threw stones at the screen during the screening. Reactions like these deeply affected the sensitive and introverted Dutt[2] Guru Dutt himself admitted in an interview to Filmfare in 1963,

” It was good in patches. It was too slow and it went over the head of audiences.”

Many claim that the film is semi-autobiographical of Guru Dutt and that he portrayed his angst in the movie. At the time of production of the film, Guru Dutt’s marriage to Geeta Dutt was under strain due to his liking for Waheeda Rehman. This was openly known causing Guru Dutt’s personal life to resemble that of the protagonist in the movie. However, the forecast of his own (Guru Dutt’s) death, to parallel the sad and imminent death of the protagonist in the film, is debatable.

Another explanation for the inspiration is Guru Dutt’s association with Gyan Mukherjee, the famous 1940s director whose Qismet (1941) had made him into a household name. The life and subsequent failures of Mukherjee, whom Guru Dutt had joined in 1950, influenced him deeply. Many think that Kaghaz ke Phool was based on Gyan Mukherjee’s life and failures,[5] as Guru Dutt’s previous film Pyaasa had been dedicated to him.

Hindi Lyrics:
are dekhi zamaane ki yaari
bichhade sabhee, bichhade sabhi baari baari
kya le ke milen ab duniya se, aansu ke siva kuch paas nahi
ya phul hi phul the daaman men, ya kaanton ki bhi aas nahi
matalab ki duniya hai saari
bichhade sabhee, bichhade sabhi baari baari

vaqt hai maharabaan, aarazu hai javaan
fikr kal ki karen, itani fursat kahaan

daur ye chalata rahe rang uchhalata rahe
roop machalata rahe, jaam badalata rahe

raat bhar mahamaan hain bahaaren yahaan
raat gar dhal gayi phir ye khushiyaan kahaan
pal bhar ki khushiyaan hain saari
badhane lagi beqaraari badhane lagi beqaraari
are dekhi zamaane ki yaari
bichhade sabhee, bichhade sabhi baari baari,..

ud ja ud ja pyaase bhanvare, ras na milega kaaron mein
kaagaz ke phul jahaan khilate hain, baith na un gulazaaro mein
naadan tamanna reti men, ummid ki kashti kheti hai
ik haath se deti hai duniyaa, sau haathon se leti hai
ye khel hai kab se jaari
bichhade sabhee, bichhade sabhi baari baari..
