Ae nargise mastaana

Posted on: January 8, 2009


Many of the big heroes of 1950s and 1960s owe a lot of their success to Rafi. Many movies of those days succeeded mainly because of the songs, and Rafi was the male singer in these songs.

Rajendra Kumar, known as Jubilee Kumar, in fact owes it much more to Rafi than others. If one removes the Rafi songs from Rajendra Kumar movies, then I bet few people would like to watch Rajendra Kumar movies. I do not think Rajendra Kumar’s acting calibre played as big a part in the success of his movies as the music.

Forget other movies for a moment, and just think about “Aarzoo” for the moment. What is left in this movie if the songs sung by Rafi are removed ? Precious little. This is a musical blockbuster, and the movie rode piggyback on the shoulders of its music.

This movie has many many great songs. So many in fact that the mind boggles. This is the first song from this movie that I am posting in this blog. And one can bet that there will be many more.

Song-Ae nargise mastaana (Aarzoo) (1965) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD- Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

ai nargis-e-mastaanaa
bas itni shikaayat hai
bas itni shikaayat hai
samjhaa hamen begaanaa
bas itni shikaayat hai
bas itni shikaayat hai
ai nargis-e-mastaanaa …

ho jaate ho barham bhi ban jaate ho hamdam bhi
ai saaqi-e-maikhaanaa sholaa bhi ho shabnam bhi
ai saaqi-e-maikhaanaa sholaa bhi ho shabnam bhi
hai khaali meraa paimaanaa bas itni shikaayat hai
bas itni shikaayat hai
ai nargis-e-mastaanaa …

har rang qayaamat hai har dhang sharaarat hai
dil tod ke chal denaa ye husn ki aadat hai
dil tod ke chal denaa ye husn ki aadat hai
haay aataa nahin bahlaanaa bas itni shikaayat hai
bas itni shikaayat hai
ai nargis-e-mastaanaa
bas itni shikaayat hai
bas itni shikaayat hai
samjhaa hamen begaanaa
bas itni shikaayat hai
bas itni shikaayat hai
ai nargis-e-mastaanaa

This movie had a whole lot of great songs, “Ae phoolon ki rani …”, “Ajee roothkar ab kahan jaaiyega …”, “Chhalke teri ankhon se …” and of course this one. There wasn’t much of a story in the movie, but it ran because of the songs.

I wonder how the music in those days was so hummable, but I am not able to recall a single song in most of the new movies these days. We used to be able to come out of the theater singing and humming these songs, it has all changed these days. Have people’s tastes changed, or is it the natural change that takes place with the passing of generations?
