Dil matwaalaa laakh sambhaalaa

Posted on: September 1, 2010


I think I am familiar with most movies starring Raj Kapoor and Nargis, but even I was stumped when I came across this movie called “Bewafaa” (1952). This movie is not all that well known, which means that this movie did not do all that well.That way, this movie suffered the same fate as “Aashinaa”, another Raj Kapoor-Nargis starrer.

But “Aashiaanaa” had some memorable songs in it which makes the movie a musical extravaganza. I find that it is the same with “Bewafaa”(1952) as well.

This movie has a lovely song in it that goes “dil matwaalaa laakh sambhaala”. This song has two versions. The tunes of the two versions are different from each other. The male version is sung by Talat Mehmood and it is picturised as a piano song on Raj Kapoor and Nargis, with Ashok Kumar also visible. Lata version, which is more lively vis a vis Talat Mehmood version is picturised o Nargis alone.

Sarshar Sailaani is the lyricist and music is composed by A R Qureshy.

Lyrics

Talat Mehmood version

aaa aaa
aaa aaa
dil matwaalaa laakh sambhaalaa
dil matwaalaa laakh sambhaalaa
phir bhi kisi par aa hi gayaa
shokh nazar se dekhne waalaa
shokh nazar se dekhne waalaa
pyaar kaa rog lagaa hi gayaa
dil matwaalaa laakh sambhaalaa

nayi umangen nayaa zamaanaa
nayi tarangen nayaa taraanaa
nayi umangen nayaa zamaanaa
nayi tarangen nayaa taraanaa
mast nazar ke teer chalaake
mast nazar ke teer chalaake
koyi hamen tadpaa hi gayaa
dil matwaalaa laakh sambhaalaa

o madhosh nigaahon waale
teri qasam dil tere hawaale
o madhosh nigaahon waale
teri qasam dil tere hawaale
dekhaa is andaaz se toone
dekhaa is andaaz se toone
pyaar kisi ko aa hi gayaa
dil matawaalaa laakh sambhaalaa

kar gaye baaten do matwaale
dekhte rah gaye dekhne waale
kar gaye baaten do matwaale
dekhte rah gaye dekhne waale
koyi kisi ko raaz-e-mohabbat
koyi kisi ko raaz-e-mohabbat
aankhon mein samjhaa hi gayaa
dil matwaalaa laakh sambhaalaa
phir bhi kisi par aa hi gayaa
dil matwaalaa laakh sambhaalaa

nayi umangen nayaa zamaanaa
nayi tarangen nayaa taraanaa
mast nazar se teer chalaa kar
koyi hamen tadpaa hi gayaa

I was well ware of Talat version of this song but not the Lata’s version until today.
By the way my vote goes to Talat version.

Absolutely agreed: I’d never heard Lata version till today, and it is no patch on the Talat version, not because of Lata’s singing of course, but the tune and music is so much poorer………….
