Kajra muhabbat waala ankhiyon me aisa daala

Posted on: February 9, 2009


I have been listening to this song for over three decades and all these days I was under the impression that it must be a song sung in a mela by two females. Yesterday I watched the picturisation of this song for the first time. Wow ! What picturisation !

One can call it a double disguise song. Here the female (Babita) is disguised as a man and the man (Vishwajeet) is disguised as a woman. Now we have had men like Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor , Kishore Kumar etc disguised as women, but none of them looked very convincing or very attractive in these disguises. Here Vishwajeet makes for a very pretty female. Helped by the fact that he was not too big built and had soft features, he makes for a very sweet and cute looking female in this song.

Shammi Kapoor was once disguised as a woman and sang in the voice of Shamshad Begam. The same thing happens in this song also. Here too, Shamshad Begam sings for Vishwajeet. Thankfully, a man’s voice is not employed for Babita and she sings in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. S H Bihari is the lyricist and the wonderful music( it sounds even more wonderful when one watches the picturisation) is composed by O P Nayyar.

The picturisation is very interesting. Villains are searching for Vishwajeet, who is singing as a woman on stage. The villains in Bollywood those days had their standard uniforms like school kids. Since they were villains, so they were all required to dress in black. And all of them are dressed up in black. The bad guys include Shetty too. Wow ! So this movie must have a fight between Shetty and Vishwajeet too ? It would be interesting to watch a small built Vishwajeet fight the heftily built Shetty in this movie.

This song is a must watch song for its fun value. The picturisation is really “paisa wasool “( worth every penny) as front stall movie watchers would say.


Song-Kajra mohabbat waala (Kismat) (1968 ) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Shamshad Begum, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

kajra mohabbat waala
ankhiyon me aisa daala
kajre ne le li meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan
duniya hai mere peeche
lekin main tere peeche
apna bana le meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan
kajra mohabbat waala
ankhiyon me aisa daala
kajre ne le li meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

aayi ho kahaan se gori
aankhon me pyaar leke
aayi ho kahaan se gori
aankhon me pyaar leke
chadhti jawaani ki ye pahli bahaar leke
Dilli shahar ka saara meena bazaar leke
Dilli shahar ka saara meena bazaar leke
jhumka Bareli wala
kaano me aisa dala
jhumke ne le li meri jaan
hay re main tere qurbaan
duniya hai mere peeche
lekin main tere peeche
apna bana le meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

motor na bangla maangoon
jhumka na haar maangoon
motor na bangla maangoon
jhumka na haar maangoon
dil ko chaalaane waale dil ka qaraar maangoon
sainya bedardi mere thoda sa pyaar maangoo
sainya bedardi mere thoda sa pyaar maangoo
kismat banaade meri
duniya basaade meri
karle sagaayi meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan
kajra mohabbat waala
ankhiyon me aisa daala
kajre ne le li meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

jabse hai dekha tujhko
ho gaye ghulaam tere
jabse hai dekha tujhko
ho gaye ghulaam tere
apna bana le gori
aayenge kaam tere
apna ye jeewan saara
likh denge naam tere
apna ye jeewan saara
likh denge naam tere
kurta ye jaali waala
uspar motiyan ki maala
kurte ne le li meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan
duniya hai mere peeche
lekin main tere peeche
apna bana le meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan
kajra mohabbat waala
ankhiyon me aisa daala
kajre ne le li meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

कजरा मोहब्बत वाला
अखियों में ऐसा डाला
कजरे ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
दुनिया है मेरे पीछे
लेकिन मैं तेरे पीछे
अपना बना ले मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
कजरा मोहब्बत वाला
अखियों में ऐसा डाला
कजरे ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

आई हो कहाँ से गोरी
आँखों में प्यार ले के
आई हो कहाँ से गोरी
आँखों में प्यार ले के
चढ़ती जवानी की ये
पहली बहार ले के
दिल्ली शहर का सारा
मीना बाज़ार ले के
दिल्ली शहर का सारा
मीना बाज़ार ले के
झुमका बरेली वाला
कानों में ऐसा डाला
झुमके ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
दुनिया है मेरे पीछे
लेकिन मैं तेरे पीछे
अपना बना ले मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

मोटर ना बंगला माँगूँ
झुमका ना हार माँगूँ
मोटर ना बंगला माँगूँ
झुमका ना हार माँगूँ
दिल को जलाने वाले दिल का क़रार माँगूँ
सैंया बेदर्दी मेरे
थोड़ा सा प्यार माँगूँ
सैंया बेदर्दी मेरे
थोड़ा सा प्यार माँगूँ
किस्मत बना दे मेरी
दुनिया बसा दे मेरी
कर लै सगाई मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
कजरा मोहब्बत वाला
अखियों में ऐसा डाला
कजरे ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

जबसे है देखा तुझको
हो गए ग़ुलाम तेरे
जबसे है देखा तुझको
हो गए ग़ुलाम तेरे
अपना बना ले गोरी
आएंगे काम तेरे
अपना ये जीवन सारा
लिख देंगे नाम तेरे
अपना ये जीवन सारा
लिख देंगे नाम तेरे
कुर्ता ये जाली वाला
उस पर मोतियन की माला
कुर्ते ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
दुनिया है मेरे पीछे
लेकिन मैं तेरे पीछे
अपना बना ले मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
कजरा मोहब्बत वाला
अखियों में ऐसा डाला
कजरे ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

When Shamshad begum sang for Shammi Kapoor, the lyrics were from the standpoint of a woman.

Here Asha sings for the real female Babita but her lyrics are from the male viewpoint and Shamshad/Bishwajeet’s female…

Recently Hindi films remembered this truly outstanding singer (her Punjabi film numbers were so popular and beautifully sung; unfortunately none seem to be available on you tube like
Batti Baal Ke Banere Utte Rakh deean

Recently she got Padma Shri, is 90 and here is a photo of this genius at 90!

[…] picturisation of this song is reminscent of the picturisation of “Kismat” (1968) song Kajra muhabbat waala ankhiyon me aisa daala. Like the kismat (1968) song, here too the hero and heroine sing and dance of the stage, with the […]
