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

O nigaahe mastaana

Posted on: December 20, 2008


“Paying guest” (1957) was one of those musical extravaganzas that were full of very nice songs. When I last counted, I have already posted 4 songs from this movie excluding this one, and there are still many more popular songs from this movie that remain to be posted.

This movie was also one where both Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle can be said to have come of age as playback singers. It is from this around this time onwards that both of them evolved their characteristic styles and began to make their own marks.

Incidentally, the word “nigaahen” seemed quite a popular word for the songs of this movie. Kishore Kumar had sung another song in this movie that went “haay haay ye nigaahen”, which has already been posted in this blog. Here is this second “nigaahe” song from the movie.


Song-O nigaahe mastaana (Paying Guest) (1957) Singers- Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics- Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD- S D Burman

Lyrics

o nigaahen mastaanaa
dekh samaan hai suhaanaa
teer dil pe chalaa ke
aa, zaraa jhuk jaanaa
o nigaahen mastaanaa
dekh samaan hai suhaanaa
teer dil pe chalaa ke
haan, zaraa jhuk jaanaa
o nigaahen mastaanaa …

koyi dekhe nasheeli aankhen mal mal ke
dil kaise bane na deewaanaa
shammaa kare hai ishaare jab jal jal ke
kaho kyaa kare parwaanaa
koyi dekhe nasheeli aankhen mal mal ke
dil kaise bane na deewaanaa
shammaa kare hai ishaare jab jal jal ke
kaho kyaa kare parwaanaa
o ho
o nigaahen mastaanaa
dekh samaan hai suhaanaa
teer dil pe chalaa ke
haan, zaraa jhuk jaanaa
o nigaahen mastaanaa …

daaman na bachaanaa mere haathon se
sharmaa ke gale se lag jaanaa
jale chaand sitaare jin baaton se
sun jaa wahi afsaanaa
daaman na bachaanaa mere haathon se
sharmaa ke gale se lag jaanaa
jale chaand sitaare jin baaton se
sun jaa wahi afsaanaa
o ho
o nigaahen mastaanaa
dekh samaan hai suhaanaa
teer dil pe chalaa ke
haan, zaraa jhuk jaanaa
o nigaahen mastaanaa …

basti ke diyon ko bujh jaane de
laharaa ke na ruk ruk jaanaa
chaahat kaa labon pe naam aane de
yahi pyaar kaa hai zamaanaa
basti ke diyon ko bujh jaane de
laharaa ke na ruk ruk jaanaa
chaahat kaa labon pe naam aane de
yahi pyaar kaa hai zamaanaa
o ho
o nigaahen mastaanaa
dekh samaan hai suhaanaa
teer dil pe chalaa ke
aa, zaraa jhuk jaanaa
o nigaahen mastaanaa …

Lovely.
You know that Nutan was one of my fav actresses – and this is one of fav Nutan songs.
Good movie too. Definitely worth a watch if you haven’t seen it yet.

I have so many movies yet to watch. But at present I am more interested in watching the songs. 😉

Humming by Asha Bhosle is real ear soothing . No single word except ” aa aa o o ” .
