Mein Zindagi Ka Sath Nibhata Chala Gaya
This song review is written by Mr. Anmol Singh.
As individuals we all face a lot of ups and downs in life. Many occasions there are problems where we just don’t know what to do. We gradually learn to live with our problems. We realize that there is no point in thinking over the issues which practically have no solution as such.
MEIN ZINDAGI KA SATH NIBHATA CHALA GAYA
HAR FIKAR KO DHOEIN MEIN UDATA CHALA GAYA
When we experience a worst case situation in our lives, we just let go our problems like a passing moment of life speaking to ourselves “YE WAKHT BHI GUZAR JAAYEGA“.
BARBADIYON KA SOOG MANANA FAZOOL THA
BARBADIYON KA JASHAN MANATA CHALA GAYA
We realize that there is no point in thinking or mourning over the unsolvable issues and problems again and again, better to be relaxed.
JO MIL GAYA USI KO MUQADDAR SAMAJH LIYA
JO KHO GAYA MEIN US KO BHULATA CHALA GAYA
It’s better to accept life the way it comes and shut the doors of the past.
GHAM AUR KHOUSHI MEIN FARQ NA MAHSOOS HO JAHAN
MEIN DIL KO US MAQAM PE LATA CHALA GAYA

As it is said that one should not be too excited during good times and too dishearten during bad times. It’s better to be in a normal state of mind both in good and bad times of life. Perhaps it is not easy for us to be in such a state of mind at all times. But we as individuals do try to work out ways and means to achieve it. Some of us do meditation or some associate themselves with the Almighty.
Now coming to the picturization of song from the film “Hum Dono”, it is indeed Dev Anand’s one of the career best performances. Going through the story line Anand a character played by the Dev Anand faces at lot of up and downs in life. He has no aim in life prior to joining the army which was a sudden decision after facing insult and humiliation from his beloved’s father. Mita a character played by Sadhana is Anand’s beloved.
The most appealing part of the song “Mein Zindage Ka Saath Nibhata” is the casual and relaxed attitude portrayed by Capt Anand. But there are many things behind Capt Anand’s casualness. He is worried about many things. He knows that his mother is a widow staying alone and no one to look after her, since he is her only son away from home. If he is killed in the war then who will look after her there after. What will happen to his beloved Mita.
Later he survives the war successfully, gets promoted to a Major but also gets separated from his senior colleague and best friend Major Verma also played by Dev Anand with the mustache. Having returned home back from the war Major Anand has another challenge to face, to convey Major Verma’s death to his family.
Looking at Major Verma’s mother’s excitement played by Lalita Pawar and his wife’s (played by Nanda) illness Major Anand does not have the guts to convey to truth. As a result Major Anand is misunderstood as Major Verma without mustache by every one. So Major Anand again does not know what to do and moves on with time as the circumstances guide him. These circumstances lead to further misunderstandings between Major Anand and Mita. Finally the misunderstandings come to an end with the return of Major Verma resulting in some conflict and arguments between Major Anand and Major Verma.
The most appealing part of the film “Hum Dono” is the story line which moves as per the reality of life, offering a lot of scope for Sahir Ludhianvi to pen down some of the most unforgettable words of all times. Rafi Sahab does complete justice to Capt Anand’s body language, especially the way he sings line “HAR FIKAR KO DHOEIN MEIN UDATA”.
Apart from this the song “Kabhi Khud Pe, Kabhi Halaat Pe Ronaa Hai” is also truly mind blowing where Major Verma and Capt Anand share their grievances of a glass of wine. Rafi one again provides the perfect emotions and expressions as per the situation for this timeless ghazal written by Sahir.
No wonder well known lyrist Javed Akhtar once commented in his tribute to Rafi Sahab,
“The film industry will always miss Rafi Sahab very much. He could match the body language of an actor so well, that looking at the picturization one will say Aysa Lagta Hai Jaise Dev Anand Gaa Rahaa Hai Ya Dilip Sahab Ga Rahen Hai“.
Finally in the end one has to compliment Music Composer Jaidev for such an incredible composition which provides him a take off to his great career establishing him as a full fledged independent music composer. His magnificent work in “Hum Dono” will be remembered for many-many years to come.
