Totally Mast – Mast Baharon Ka Main Aashiq


The song ‘Mast Baharon Ka Main Ashiq‘ belongs to a very successful film titled Farz which was released in 1967. The plot is rather far fetched – it is about a secret agent who is assigned to investigate and report on the murder of another fellow spy and solve a very critical mystery involving some very dangerous criminals. Whilst on this superbly important mission, the spy finds time to fall in love with a very pretty girl. Luckily or unluckily for him, the girl’s father seems to be one of the criminals he is after.

Jeetendra, Aruna Irani, Babita in Farz

You might say the plot stinks, but in 1967, it did not. Though it was a slow starter, it sure did pick up after a couple of weeks. This is attributed to the really popular songs which featured in the film, one of them being Mast Baharon Ka main Ashiq. It’s amazing what one single song can do for a film and all those involved – not only did it help in the reversal of the film’s fate, it also catapulted the hero of the film, Jeetendra to instant fame. All thanks to Rafi Sahab! He has done the vocals and has played a major hand in creating the superstar named Jeetendra. This song has been done so well by him – it has made his voice immortal. Also, in this song he varies from his studiedly conventional songs to something really wild and the “cuckoo” really is something delightful.

This was the song that gave him his jumping jack image – which stands even today. In the song, you see a very energetic Jeetendra prancing about with a very svelte Aruna Irani. They get so carried away that at one point in the song he pulls her out from between his legs! In those days, this was a rather daring and sexy move. Whilst we are recounting how important this song was for Jeetendra, how can we forget mentioning that this is the song which first featured his famous white shoes?

The music for the song has been composed by Lakshmikant Pyarelal and they have not disappointed in the least. In fact, it is one of their most famous creations. It has a little bit of swing, jazz and Bollywood – a cocktail which seems to worked extraordinarily. A rather long song, you won’t know where the time flew because the music has been so beautifully and perfectly composed. And kudos to the pair for the wonderfully and strategically placed “cuckoo” in the song.

Laxmikant Pyarelal provided music to the movie Farz

To accompany the great music, lyrics were provided by Anand Bakshi. It is indeed needless to say how well the lyrics fit the character and song – a match made in Bollywood heaven. It just personifies the hero’s mood and is an excellent example of Anand Bakshi’s talent.

All in all, a song which achieved fame and success for all those who helped create it. Beautifully done and a soon to be collector’s special for its beauty.

    Hi Abdul Great Challange There is also a great title song for film Kaun Apna Kaun Praya which is sung by our beloved Rafi Saab. How energetic song it is. I have heard his more than 4500 songs several times which i have in my library. Lekin koi bhi aisa gana nahi sun jisko rafi sabab ne itni taqat se gaya ho, no one can imitate this song too
