Mujhe dekhkar aap ka muskuraana

Posted on: November 24, 2008

“Ek Musafir Ek Haseena” was a movie featuring Joy Mukherjee and Sadhana. The music was by O P Nayyar and lyrics were written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan ( known more for writing lyrics for Madan Mohan). Rafi, as is his wont creates magic with his divine voice in this song.

Though a solo song, this song is picturised on Joy Mukherjee and Sadhana both. And as I have remarked earlier, hero and heroine figuring in a solo song and one of them shown fidgeting instead of singing in response appears a bit artificial to me. Not that singing songs is not artificial.;)

Song-Mujhe dekhkar aap ka muskurana (Ek musafir ek haseena) (1962) Singer- Rafi, Lyrics- Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD- O P Nayyar


mujhe dekh kar aapkaa muskaraanaa
muhabbat nahin hai to phir aur kyaa hai
ho … mujhe dekh kar aapkaa muskaraanaa

o ho ho aa ha ha ha…
mujhe tum begaanaa kah lo yaa ke deewaanaa
magar ye deewaanaa jaane dil kaa fasaanaa
banaawat mein dil ki haqeeqat chupaanaa
muhabbat nahin hai to phir aur kyaa hai
ho … mujhe dekh kar aapkaa muskaraanaa

o ho ho ha aa ha ha…
khayaalon mein khoyi khoyi rahti ho aise
musaafir ki chalti phirti tasveer jaise
adaa aashiqui ki nazar shaayaraanaa
muhabbat nahin hai to phir aur kyaa hai
ho … mujhe dekh kar aapkaa muskaraanaa

Mr. Atul,

Here is a link to the song above :

And food for thought :

Another song, which is a direct lift from the above opn song –
In the movie ” Sangharsh” by Jatin-Lalit


Sonu copying Rafiji I don’t mind.
