Chehre se zaraa aanchal jab aapne sarkaayaa

Posted on: July 30, 2010

O P Nayyar, who ruled the roost in Hindi movie music scene in 1950s and 1960s had lost much of his ground by the end of 1960s. But I find that the music that he created in his last few movies was perhaps as outstanding as any music that he created in his earlier more heralded music. It is another matter that the music of these movies were not lapped up as much as they should have been for various reasons.

I find that O P Nayyar was at his best in movies like “Sambandh” (1969) and “Ek Baar Muskuraa do” (1972) and both of these movies were produced by Ram Mukherji of the Mukherji khaandaan. This Khaandaan was a big movie producing family.

I have posted quite a few songs from “Ek Baar Muskuraa Do” (1972). Here is another song from this movie. It is a duet sung by Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle. This song in fact is the title song of the movie which is picturised on Deb Mukherji and Tanuja. S H Bihari is the lyricist.

I find this song a very nice song to listen to, and I am sure others will love to listen to this song as well.



Song-Chehre se zaraa aanchal jab aapne sarkaayaa(Ek Baar Muskuraa do) (1972) Singers- Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar


chehre se zaraa aanchal
jab aapne sarkaayaa
duniyaa ye pukaar uthi
lo chaand nikal aayaa

maanaa ke wo heeraa ho
mushkil se jo haath aaye
itnaa bhi na tadpaao
ke jaan nikal jaaye
chhodo ji
naa naa
ye jhagde
naa naa
chhodo ji ab ye jhagde
ek baar muskuraa do
taqdeer hai kyaa apni
maine jo tumhen paayaa
duniyaa ye pukaar uthi
lo chaand nikal aayaa

aaa aaa
o o o
aa haa haa haa
waise to mujhe tum par
pooraa hi bharosaa hai
par kaise bhulaa doon main jo
aankhon ne dekhaa hai
dil todoge
chhedoge dil todoge
ek baar muskaraa do
bas itni shiqaayat par
kitnaa mujhe tadpaayaa
duniyaa ye pukaar uthi
lo chaand nikal aayaa
chehre se zaraa aanchal
jab aapne sarkaayaa
duniyaa ye pukaar uthi
lo chaand nikal aayaa
