Jhilmil taare karen ishaare sojaa

Posted on: June 27, 2010

I have posted two rare songs from a rare movie called “Mashukaa” (1953) which was a home production of Mukesh. In this movie, Mukesh and Suraiyya were the lead actors, and naturally they had sung for themselves in this movie.

Here is a duet sung by the two. I have heard this song for the first time only just recently, and I am sure that will be the case with most other music lovers too. What a lovely song it is ! Shailendra is the lyricist and Roshan is the music director.

If this song was lost as a result of the failure of the movie at the box office then the loss is that of the listeners, who were deprived of listening to the songs of this movie. This song sounds like a gem that deserves to be much better known among music lovers.

Song-Jhilmil taare kare ishaare sojaa (Mashuka) (1953) Singers-Mukesh, Suraiyya, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Roshan


jhilmil taare karen ishaare
sojaa raaj dulaare
pal pal beli
naar naweli
nindiyaa aa
nindiyaa aa
aayi nain dwaare

matlab ki andhi ye duniyaa
matlab ki andhi ye duniyaa
kaise hamen pahchaane
kaise hamen pahchaane
dil ke tukde mere dil ke
dard ko tu hi jaane
dard ko tu hi jaane
jab koi soye
par ham royen
jaa jeewan ke maare

sundar sapne dekh magar
tu moh na kar sapnon se
sundar sapne dekh magar
tu moh na kar sapnon se
roz badalti hai ye duniyaa
aas na kar apnon se
aas na kar apnon se

dhoop chaaon ka khel ye duniyaa
sukh dukh aash niraashaa
sukh dukh aash niraashaa
tere angan ek chaand ek taaraa
tere angan ek chaand ek taaraa
ankhiyan chamke aashaa
ankhiyan chamke aashaa
dhal jaayegi raat andheri
honge phir bhi ujaale

for quite some time i was looking for , rather unsuccessfully, suraiya’s song from “mashooka” but within span of three days i got two in my iPod.
thanks atul.
this song is real gem.

I am pleased to know that I could be of help to you.

Suraiyya & mukesh are always sweet & refreshing.
