Raaton ki neend chheen lee aankhon ke intezaar ne

Posted on: September 22, 2010

I had never heard about this movie called “Shokhiyaan” (1951) and I was not aware of this song till recently.

This song is sung by Suraiyya and so naturally the song was picturised on herself. Kidar Sharma is the lyricist and music is composed by Jamal Sen.

This song is one of those forgotten gems that I keep finding almost on a daily basis.

There are a few words in the lyrics where I am not sure. I request my readers to provide the correct/missing words in the lyrics.



song-Raaton ki neend chheen li aankhon ke intezaar ne (Shokhiyaan) (1951) Singer-Suraiyya, Lyrics-Kidar Sharma, MD-Jamal Sen


raaton ki neend chheen lee
aankhon ke intezaar ne
aankhon ke intezaar ne
taaron kaa
taaron kaa dil khilaa diyaa
is dil-e-bekaraar ne
is dil-e-bekaraar ne

sahmi huyi kali hansi
sahmi huyi kali hansi
kahne lagi ye khaar se
kahne lagi ye khaar se
jiske liye khili jiyaa
wo khauf (?)si bahaar ne
wo khauf(?) si bahaar ne

dil pe to naaz thaa hamen
dil pe to naaz thaa hamen
ghoont lahoo ke pea gayaa
ghoont lahoo ke peai gayaa
kissaa-e-gham sunaa diyaa
deedaa-e-ashqbaar ne
deedaa-e-ashqbaar ne

raaton ki neend chheen lee
aankhon ke intezaar ne
aankhon ke intezaar ne
