Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Itni nazuk na bano

Posted on: November 21, 2008


Chitragupta was a music director who was always on the fringes of mainstream movies. Most of the time he would give music for C grade movies viz mythological movies, stunt movies etc, and such movies alongwith their music failed to make much impression with mainstream Bollywood audience.

But every now and then, Chitragupta would make people sit up and take notice, even while composing music for forgettable movies.

Here is one such song. The movie is called “Vaasna” and the song is sung by Rafi. Few people may have heard the name of the movie, but I am sure many people have heard this song and liked it. I was among those who liked this song, despite knowing nothing about the names of its movie, music director and the lyricist.

This song was sung with gutso by Rafi. It is picturised on Vishwajeet ( poor man’s Shammi Kapoor) and a lady whom I am unable to identify. It is not Padmini, nor does it look like Sayeeda Khan. can someone tell me who is she ? ( P S- After Raja’s suggestion, I am now certain that she is Kumud Chuggani).

As one can see, Vishwajeet is not winning any awards for chivalry in this song. He is exhorting the lady not to be a sissy. It beats me how can a sissy not be a sissy ? In what way is the hero acting like a non sissy ? As one can see, the suitcase he is hauling clearly looks empty. So much for telling the lady “itni nazuk na bano”.


Song-Itni naazul na bano (Vaasna) ( 1968) Singer- Rafi, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD- Chitragupta

Lyrics

itni naazuk naa bano, haay, itni naazuk naa bano
itni naazuk naa bano, haay, itni naazuk naa bano
hadke andar ho nazaakat to adaa hoti hai
hadse badh jaaye to aap apni sazaa hoti hai
itni naazuk naa bano, haay, itni naazuk naa bano

jism kaa bojh uthaaye nahin uthtaa tumse
jism kaa bojh uthaaye nahin uthtaa tumse
zindgaani kaa kadaa bojh sahogi kaise
tum jo halkisi hawaaon mein lachak jaati ho
tez jhonkon ke thapedon mein rahogi kaise
itni naazuk naa bano, haay, itni naazuk naa bano

ye naa samjho ke har ik raah mein kaliyaan hongi
ye naa samjho ke har ik raah mein kaliyaan hongi
raah chalni hai to kaanton pe bhi chalna hogaa
ye nayaa daur hai is daur mein jeene ke liye
husn ko husn kaa andaaz badalnaa hogaa
itni naazuk naa bano, haay, itni naazuk naa bano

koi ruktaa nahin thahre huye raahi ke liye
koi ruktaa nahin thahre huye raahi ke liye
jo bhi dekhegaa woh katraake guzar jaayegaa
ham agar waqt ke hamraah naa chalne paayen
waqt ham dono ko thukraake guzar jaayegaa
itni naazuk naa bano, haay, itni naazuk naa bano
hadke andar ho nazaakat to adaa hoti hai
hadse badh jaaye to aap apni sazaa hoti hai
itni naazuk naa bano, haay, itni naazuk naa bano

Thanks Atul for posting this song.
I knew you would have some interesting comments. 🙂
No doubt, Biswajeet’s suitcase looks very empty. 🙂
Nice song, isn’t it ?

Indeed,the suitcase is as empty as the suitcases that Amitabh Bachchan carries in “Coolie” .

Do you know who the lady is ?

Am not sure. It is either Sayeeda Khan or Kumud Chugani.
