Nigaahen milaane ko jee chahta hai

Posted on: November 16, 2008


When it comes to qawwalis, Roshan was a music director non pareil. A few of his memorable qawwalis have already been posted in this blog. Here is another one viz “Nigaahein milaane ko jee chahta hai”.

This qawwali from “Dil hi to hai” is one of the immortal qawwalis of Bollywood movies. This is sung by Asha Bhonsle, and she shows her versatility as a singer in this song. I have always felt that she was the female equivalent of Kishore when it came to singing bubbly songs. Here she shows that she was the female equivalent of Rafi as well, when it came to singing songs like this qawwali, which was the forte of Rafi among male singers.

The lyrics written by Sahir are absolutely fantastic, and more importantly, easily understandable. And Roshan is of course outstanding as a music director.

When it comes to picturisation, Nutan is rather cute in this song. She was hardly a great dancer or great under this kind of roles, but she has hung on gamely, and has done a decent job. In fact, there are fans who think that she was great in this movie and in this song.

So, here is another wonderful gem from Roshan on the occasion of his death anniversary today.
PS-On request of readers, the sargam of the song in the penultimate stanza (ni re ga…) has been added. I thank Sudhir jee for providing it.


Song-Nigaahen milaane ko jee chahta hai (Dil hi to hai)(1963) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD- Roshan

Lyrics

aaaa aaaa aaaa
raaz ki baat hai
mehfil mein kahen yaa na kahen
bas gayaa hai koyi is dil mein
kahen yaa na kahen
kahen yaa na kahen

nigaahen milaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
nigaahen milaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
o nigaahen milaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
dil-o-jaan lutaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
dil-o-jaan lutaane
lutaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
jee chaahtaa hai

wo tohmat jise ishq kahti hai duniyaa
wo tohmat jise ishq kahti hai duniyaa
kahti hai duniyaa
wo tohmat jise ishq kahti hai duniyaa
wo tohmat uthaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
wo tohmat uthaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
wo tohmat uthaane uthaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
jee chaahtaa hai

aaa aaa aaa aaa
kisi ke manaane mein lazzat wo paayi
kisi ke manaane mein lazzat wo paayi
lazzat wo paayi
kisi ke manaane mein lazzat wo paayi
ki phir rooth jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
ki phir rooth jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
mera rooth jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
dilo jaan lutaane ko jee chaahta hai

wo jalwaa jo ojhal bhi hai saamne bhi
wo jalwaa jo ojhal bhi hai saamne bhi

wo jalwaa jo ojhal bhi hai saamne bhi
wo jalwaa churaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
wo jalwaa churaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
wo jalwaa churaane churaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
jee chaahtaa hai

wo jalwaa churaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
wo jalwaa churaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

ho o
jis ghadi meri nigaahon ko teri deed huyi
wo ghadi mere liye aish ki tamheed huyi
jab kabhi maine teraa chaand saa chehraa dekhaa
jab kabhi maine teraa chaand saa chehraa dekhaa
eid ho yaa ki na ho mere liye eid huyi
aahe eid ho yaa ki na ho mere liye eid huyi
wo jalwaa jo ojhal bhi hai saamne bhi
wo jalwaa churaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
wo jalwaa churaane ko jee chaahtaa hai


ni re ga

mulaaqaat kaa koyi paighaam deejiye ki
chhup chhupake aane ko jee chaahtaa hai
aur aake na jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
aur aake na jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
jee chaahtaa hai
nigaahen milaane ko jee chaahtaa hai
nigaahen milaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Thanks for posting this farmaish of mine, Atul.
Classic song.

Did not realise it was Roshan’s death anniversary.

“In fact, there are fans who think that she was great in this movie and in this song.”

I don’t know about others but there is definitely one. 😉

I really liked Nutan in all sorts of roles..including her halka-phulka ones like in Paying Guest, Tere Ghar Ke Saamne, Dil Hi to Hai.

I knew you would like this song.

[…] first line of this song is identical to the “Dil Hi To Hai” (1963) song (Nigaahen milaane ko jee chahta hai(Dil hi to hai)), but this song is an entirely different song. This son is from an earlier movie, namely […]

There is beautiful Sargam before “mulaaqaat kaa koyi paighaam deejiye”. Can you please include that in the lyrics.

Add me to another of those fans. Her expressions, girl next door and beautiful looks, sharp features. She sure seemed like one of the rare non-controversial actresses. I love her expressions in the song sung by Mukesh picturised on Raj Kapoor and her – ‘Tum Agar Mujhko’

can somone post the lyrics with the ‘sargam’ sung in the song? starting with nire ga……

Now it has been added. You can thank Sudhir for that.

great post

Wah wah
i’m on the clouds right now,
what a magnificent song,
Thanks.

I regret to inform you that there is an error in your Sargam portion; it should be as follows:

ni re ga
ga re ga ni re ma
ma ga ma ni re ga
ga re ga ni ga re
re ga
DHA ma
ma dha ni sa sa ni ni
dha dha pa pa ga re. . .aayyy
sa ni dha pa ma ga re
ni. . .eeee dha pa ma ga re sa ni
re ga

[the error in capital]

It is always encourage for learners to practice such songs on a Harmonium, and the Sargam would then be easier to distinguish.
