Upkar: Kasme vaade pyaar wafaa...(Cover)

Lyrics & Chords

I have love and hate relationship with this song. I love the expressions, feel and the way great and only Manna da has sung it. Pran ji’s on-screen acting made this song immortal.
I hate the unbearable gloominess in the song and the helplessness dripping through line by line of the philosophical poetry….
Finally the better part has taken over and I am here with my humble attempt….

Movie: Upkar
Original singer: Manna Dey
Music: Kalyanji Anandji
Lyrics: Indeewar

Wow Adwaitji kya gaana choona hai aur kya gaaya hai. Beautiful singing. Mein aapko ye gana gane ke liye kahne hi wala tha aur aapne khud hi ga liya. Some connections are there among all the music lovers I believe.


Harish said

this is a real toughie and u covered it with consummate ease adwait! great feelings too.

though i love sad songs, i don’t like this song. this gloominess and helplessness as u rightly pointed out is perhaps too much for me.

Adwait bhai ….this is one of Manna day’s best and a great song. I always thought that your voice suits Manna dey a lot…I mean the voice timbre.

Great attempt…at this classic song, needs a lot of breath control, harkats and above all a lot of soul …….Hats off for this superb attempt ….goes to my favourites….kya gaya hai yaar !! BTW …I am also pressing the like button simultaneously. I guess people forgot to click the like and just added them to their favs…LOL

Adwait, this is a masterpiece from Mannadey. You have sung with the right feel-congrats!
There is a tamil version for this song-‘Kanavu kaanum Vazhkai Yaavum’ from a Balu Mahendra movie.Though credit for music is given to Raja saab, the song is a perfect copy of the hindi original.

Adwait – always like the feel you bring into your renditions. Enjoyed this a lot.

So soulfully and beautifully sung, Adwait! Yes, I agree this is one of those unbearably gloomy songs, but your voice has revived this classic with full justice. Your voice modulations and expressions are amazing…
Loved it, to favs,
