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

Unse nazren milin aur hijaab aa gayaa

Posted on: December 18, 2009


I have posted nearly one hundred songs composed by Madan Mohan in this blog. Madan Mohan composed music for some 700 songs in Bollywood movies so I have posted nearly 15 % of Madan Mohan’s compositions.

I just noticed that I have so far neglected “Ghazal” (1964). It was a flop movie (standard fate of Madan Mohan movies) even though the movie boasted of big actors- Sunil Dutt, Meena Kumari, etc.

The music was ofcourse out of this world.

Here is a song from this movie which is sung by Lata and Minu PurushottamSuman Kalyanpur. Lata sings for Meena Kumari but I am not familiar with the name of the lady who lip syncs in Minu Purushottam’sSuman Kalyanpur’s voice.

PS-Mr Sadanand Kamath points out that the song is sung by Lata and Suman Kalyanpur and not Lata and Minu Purushottam. The 78 rpm record of this song mentions the singers as Lata Mangeshkar, Suman Kalyanpur & Chorus.
Suman Kalyanpur sings for Nazima in the picturisation.

HFGK mentions that this song was apparently sung by Lata and Minu Purushottam in the picturised version.

Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. It must be one of the very few occasions where Sahir Ludhianvi wrote lyrics for a Madan Mohan movie.

The lyrics are in Urdu and most people (including me) like such songs even though we are not clear about a few words. One such word could be Hijaab.
Hijaab= the veil that Muslim women wear on their face.

Song-Unse nazren milin aur hijaab aa gayaa (Ghazal) (1964) Singers-Lata, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

un se nazren milin aur hijaab aa gayaa
un se nazren milin aur hijaab aa gayaa
zindagi mein haseen inquilaab aa gayaa
un se nazren milin aur hijaab aa gayaa

aaa
bekhabar the umar ke taqaazon se ham
bekhabar the umar ke taqaazon se ham
hamko maaloom na thaa aise bhi din aayenge
aayinaa dekhe to aap apne se sharmaayenge
aaa
hamko maaloom na thaa aise bhi din aayenge
aayinaa
aayinaa dekhe to haay haay
aap apne se sharmaayenge
bekhabar the umar ke taqaazon se ham
aaj jaanaa ki sachmuch shabaab aa gayaa
aaj jaanaa ki sachmuch shabaab aa gayaa
un se nazren milin aur hijaab aa gayaa

aa
aankh jhukti hai kyun saans rukti hai kyun
aankh jhukti hai kyun saans rukti hai kyun
in sawaalon ka khud se jawaab aa gayaa
in sawaalon ka khud se jawaab aa gayaa
un se nazren milin aur hijaab aa gayaa

aaa
dil ke aane ko ham kis tarah rokte
dil ke aane ko ham kis tarah rokte
dil ko roka na gayaa
khud ko sambhaalaa na hayaa
baat intehaa badhi
baat ko taalaaa na gayaa
haan
dil ko roka na gayaa
khud ko sambhaalaa na hayaa
baat intehaa badhi haay
baat ko taalaaa na gayaa
dil ke aane ko ham kis tarah rokte
jispe aanaa thaa kaanaa (?) kharaab aa gayaa
jispe aanaa thaa kaanaa (?) kharaab aa gayaa
un se nazren milin aur hijaab aa gayaa
zindagi mein haseen inquilaab aa gayaa

Thanks for the information.

Beautiful song and as you noted, one of the many memorable songs from Gazal (or Ghazal).

However, the video in your link seems to have been removed. Rajshri has uploaded the video on Youtube; here is the link:

The playback singer lip syncing for Nazima in this song is Suman Kalyanpur and NOT Minoo Purushottam as mentioned in the write up. Please carry out necessary correction.

Some corrections in lyrics :
bekhabar the ‘ ubharte ‘ taqaazon se ham
bekhabar the ‘ ubharte ‘ taqaazon se ham

dil ko roka na gayaa
khud ko sambhaalaa na ‘ gayaa ‘
baat ‘ iss tarhaa ‘ badhi
baat ko taalaaa na gayaa

jispe aanaa thaa ‘ khanaa kharaab ‘ aa gayaa
jispe aanaa thaa ‘ khanaa kharaab ‘ aa gayaa

“khanaa kharaab ” – The term roughly means ‘spoil sport’ .

Atul ji,

I had, in my earlier comment, mentioned that the second female voice is NOT of Minoo Purushottam but that of Suman Kalyanpur. I know that almost all online references mention the name of Minoo Purushottam.
Today, I checked the credit titles played in the film and found that under playback singers, I do not find the name of Minoo Purushottam but Suman Kalyanpur’s name is mentioned among other playback singers.

I also checked the image of 78 rpm record I have with me which has mentioned ‘Lata Mangeshkar, Suman Kalyanpur & Chorus’. One can clearly identify the voice lip syncing for Nazima in the sound track with that of Suman Kalyanpur.

Link to the video of the song is given below:

HFGK mentions that the singers in record number N 54715 are Lata, Suman kalyanpur and chorus. Then HFGK mentions that the picturised version of the song apparently had the voices of Lata, Minu Purushottam and chorus.

Thanks Atul Sir & Kamath Sir for the clarification regarding this song. This song also belongs to the rare of the rarest class where Lataji & Sumanji play-backed together. I think this is second and the last time where these two Maestros unite first time at “Kabhi Aaj Kabhi Kal Kabhi Parson” from movie Chand (1959).

I just heard a solo ghazal rendered by Minoo Purushottam and I find it difficult to differentiate voices of Suman Kalyanpur and Minoo Purushottam. But the question remains as to why Minoo Purushottam’s name was not included in the credit title of the film.

There may be some trivia associated with the recording of this song.

Anekant ji,
Since the Minu wala song was picturised, you can not say that Lata and Suman play backed this song. At best this will become only a version song. Chand duet of Lata and Suman , then, is the only song of them together,I suppose.

The song was first recorded in the voices of Lata and Suman. However, for reasons not clear, the film version was recorded in the voice of Lata and Minoo. The Lata-Minoo version is now available but the Lata-Suman version on record- for which the number is given in HFGK and quoted here- is not available on You Tube. May be some collector has it.
HFGK also mentions singers as Lata, Suman and chorus, and then gives a note separately.
As Minoo’s name is not in the film credit list, obviouly, this must be done after the film was released and the Lata-Minoo song replaced in the film.
The reason for this is not difficult to guess, considering Lata’s reputation.
-AD.
note- my earlier comment dated 3-10-2016 is null and void.

It is so because the LP records generally have songs taken from the original sound tracks if the films are available.

In 78 rpm record, it is Suman Kalyanpur’s name along with Lata Mangeshkar. See link given below:

This song was first recorded in the voices of Suman Kalyanpur and Minu Purushottam but for unknown reasons that was scrapped soon and new recording was made in voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Minu Purushottam.

Dear Arun ji, Sadanand ji, other friends,

I have both the versions of the song. I listened to them one after the other.

There is distinct difference in the voices of Minu Purushottam and Suman Kalyanpur, notable enough to be easily differentiated.

Minu’s voice is sharper, and SK’s voice is softer. In fact, coming just after the voice of Lata in the song, SK’s voice is heard relatively softer than Lata’s voice, and clearly differentiable.
