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

Ankhiyan bhool gayin hain sona

Posted on: November 26, 2008


Bollywood songs typically follow a few set patterns when it comes to their picturisation. Songs that are sung by the lead pair tend to be picturised with them running round trees ( I am told) and later running around open spaces ( presumably as a result of deforestation leading to absence of trees to run around).

Another formula is adopted when the heroine is with her sahelis. In olden movies, they would typically assemble on a panghat or or the bank of a river/ pond and compare notes. The heroine would get teased on her affair with the hero, and the heroine would initially deny it vehemently, of course.

Here is such a song from “Goonj Uthi Shehnaai”. The song is 50 years old, but the theme has not aged much even today. One can still identify with the theme of the song.

This song was sung by Lata and Geeta Dutt, and it is a lovely and lively song, where the heroine gets teased by her sahelis on the bank of a river.

This movie “Goonj Uthi Shehnaai” was a musical blockbuster with many songs that went on to become evergreen iconic songs. Bharat Vyas was the lyricist and Vasant Desai was the music director. Most of the songs were sung by Lata, and a few by Rafi as well. This was the one song in the movie that contained the voice of Geeta Dutt in addition to Lata.


Song- Ankhiyan bhool gayin hai sona (Goonj uthhi shehnaai) (1959) Singers-Getta Dutt, Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Vasant Desai

Lyrics

hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm
aa aa aa
hoy akhiyaan bhool gayin hain sonaa
hoy hoy hoy
dil pe huaa hai jaadoo-tonaa
aa haay
shahnaayi waale teri shahnaayi re karejvaa ko
cheer gayi cheer gayi cheer gayi
hoy ankhiyaan bhool gayin hain sonaa
dil pe huaa hai jaadoo-tonaa
shahnaayi waale teri shahnaayi re karejvaa ko
cheer gayi cheer gayi cheer gayi
hoy ankhiyaan bhool gayin hain sonaa

ab din ye kaise gori aaye
kaise gori aaye
chhup-chhup ke milnaa man bhaaye
milnaa man bhaaye
sakhiyon se kaahe ab chori
kaahe ab chori
bandh gayi re preet ki dori
preet ki dori
koyi julmi sanwariyaa ki tirchhi najariyaa
ho maar gayi maar gayi maar gayi
hoy ankhiyaan bhool gayin hain sonaa
dil pe huaa hai jaadoo-tonaa
shahnaayi waale teri shahnaayi re karejavaa ko
cheer gayi cheer gayi cheer gayi
hoy ankhiyaan bhool gayin hain sonaa

sakhiyaan na maaro mohe taane
jisko na laagi wo kyaa jaane
sakhiyaan na maaro mohe taane
achchhaa ji
jisko na laagi wo kyaa jaane
hmmm hmmm
o o o o
bhool jaaogi bhool jaaogi
bhool jaaogi karnaa ye thitholi
koyi mil gayaa jo hamjoli
kaise bach ke rahogi
aahen bhar ke kahogi
main to haar gayi haar gayi haar gayi
hoy ankhiyaan bhool gayin hain sonaa
dil pe huaa hai jaadoo-tonaa
shahnaayi waale teri shahnaayi re kalejavaa ko
cheer gayi cheer gayi cheer gayi
hoy ankhiyaan bhool gayin hain sonaa

aapas mein milte deewaane
aur hamse ho rahe bahaane
aur hamse ho rahe bahaane
wo baan hamne pahchaane
wo baan hamne pahchaane
najron ki ye ghaaten
chori chori mulaaqaaten
ham jaan gayin jaan gayin jaan gayin
hoy ankhiyaan bhool gayin hain sonaa
dil pe huaa hai jaadoo-tonaa
shahnaayi waale teri shahanaayi re karejavaa ko
cheer gayi cheer gayi cheer gayi
hoy ankhiyaan bhool gayin hain sonaa

Thanks for posting this, Atul.

This is in my top 10 songs of all-time, across all singers.
Superb, just superb.
I can watch the video and listen to the song any number of times.

I can’t help feeling that Geeta Dutt has outdone Lata in this song. She has put on that “mischievous” voice very effortlessly…
