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

Nazar uthne se pahle hi jhukaa leti to achchaa thaa

Posted on: August 12, 2010


When one thinks on the movie “Modern Girl” (1961), one thinks of the song Ye mausam rangeen samaan. This song is a very popular Mukesh song,and I associate this song with this movie whenever I hear the name of this movie.

Those were the days of record players and people who could afford record players and record must have certainly bought the record of this song. On the reverse side of this record, there used to be a Rafi song “nazar uthne se pahle hi jhukaa leti to kyaa thaa”. For some reason, this song failed to take off. Listening to this song, one can quickly realise that this song is a gem on its own merit.

Here is this forgotten gem from “Modern Girl” (1961). This song is a background song. The song is picturised on a lady who by the standards of the time had sinned and therefore brought shame on her and on her family. This background song in fact is severely censuring her for her moral misconduct. That is why I call this song a “Moral police” song.

Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist and Ravi is the music director.

Any idea who is the lady on whom this song is picturised ? Saeeda Khan,Nalini Chonkar and Smriti Biswas were the three main actresses in this movie. Is she one of them, or perhaps none of the above, as they say in multiple choice questions ?

PS-She is Nalini Chonkar. I Thank Shekhar Gupta for making this identification.


Song-Nazar uthne se pehle hi jhukaa leti to achchaa thaa (Modern Girl) (1961) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

mitti mein mil gayaa hai teraa naam dekh le
chhoti si ek bhool kaa anzaam dekh le

nazar uthne se pahle hi jhukaa leti to achchhaa thaa
nazar uthne se pahle hi jhukaa leti to achchhaa thaa
tu apne aap ko pardaa banaa leti to achchhaa thaa
nazar uthne se pahle hi jhukaa leti to achchhaa thaa

tere honthon ki ye surkhi tere chehre ki raunak hai
tere honthon ki ye surkhi tere chehre ki raunak hai
ye surkhi maang mein apni rachaa leti to achchhaa thaa
tu apne aap ko pardaa banaa leti to achchhaa thaa
nazar uthne se pahle hi jhukaa leti to achchhaa thaa

tere shaane pe lahraate huye aanchal kaa kyaa kahnaa
tere shaane pe lahraate huye aanchal kaa kyaa kahnaa
isi aanchal se ik ghoonghat banaa leti to achchhaa thaa
tu apne aap ko pardaa banaa leti to achchhaa thaa
nazar uthne se pahle hi jhukaa leti to achchhaa thaa

jo kaanton se ulajhkar phool tode bhi to kyaa tode
jo kaanton se ulajhkar phool tode bhi to kyaa tode
samajh kar soch kar daaman bachaa leti to achchhaa thaa
tu apne aap ko pardaa banaa leti to achchhaa thaa
nazar uthne se pahle hi jhukaa leti to achchhaa thaa

idhar rangeeniyaan thin aur udhar maan-baap ki khushiyaan
idhar rangeeniyaan thin aur udhar maan-baap ki khushiyaan
unhen khush karke tu unki duaa leti to achchhaa thaa
tu apne aap ko pardaa banaa leti to achchhaa thaa
nazar uthne se pahle hi jhukaa leti to achchhaa thaa

geet ke bol bahut hi prabhaavi hain…
-50 saal pahle likhe is geet mein kahaa hai …
‘इस आँचल को घूंघट बना लेती तो अच्छा था’ ..

सोच रही हूँ..आज की लड़कियों पर अगर राजेन्द्र कृष्ण साहब लिखते तो क्या लिखते..?
