Ek nazar kisi ne dekhaa aur dil huaa deewaanaa

In many of my posts I have talked about Rafi saab. And that is because I just love his voice. It goes straight to my heart. Apparently, from all accounts, he was also a simple, generous human being – and this only adds to the reason why I have extremely high regard for him.

Having said that, my respect for Rafi saab is certainly not at the cost of my respect or admiration for other singers. I have a lot of respect for all those singers who have given us all those timeless treasures that we enjoy on a daily basis. I would never pull down a particular singer in trying to prop up another singer. They have all given us many lovely songs and we should be thankful to them for that.

One of the singers I am very fond of is Kishore Kumar. Now he was THE biggest name when I was growing up in the early 70s – he dominated that decade like a colossus. Till his death, he reigned supreme. There are a lot of Kishore songs I absolutely love. Whether fast, fun songs or sad songs, Kishore had his own appeal and unique style.

Kishore was supposed to be a total masti person, as many who worked with him in the industry have said. Lata Mangeshkar often said that Kishore was always playing some prank or the other all the time.

Kishore is easily one of the most talented all-rounder performers in the Hindi film industry, if not THE most talented one. He could not just sing, he could compose, act, he even produced/directed movies.

I love Kishore as an actor too. He was a laugh riot and his movies were usually zany comedies. Over the last few days, I’ve seen a couple of them – Naughty Boy (1962) and Baap re Baap (1955). Total timepass movies with lovely songs too. I especially liked Naughty Boy, it was really cute and the chemistry between Kishore and Kalpana is lovely.

Anyway coming to the song here, it is from a Kishore movie that I’ve not seen yet but hope to see sometime. The movie is Rangoli, starring Kishore and Vyjanthimala. This movie has a fair number of well-known songs and this song is also quite well-known.

I like this song a lot, it is vibrant and very hummable – and that is something you can actually say for most Kishore songs of the 50s and 60s. Just a delight to listen to.

I hope you enjoy this song too.

Song-Ek nazar kisi ne dekhaa aur dil huaa deewaanaa (Rangoli) (1961) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

Ek nazar kisi ne dekha aur dil hua deewaana
hai baat bas itni si, aur ban gaya afsaana
ek nazar kisi ne dekha aur dil hua deewaana
hai baat bas itni si, aur ban gaya afsaana

chori chori bagiya mein aayi jo bahaar
kaliyon ki ankhiyon se chhalka khumaar
chori chori bagiya mein aayi jo bahaar
kaliyon ki ankhiyon se chhalka khumaar
chhup chhup kisi se nazar huyi chaar
koi dil jeet gaya koi gaya haar
man mere jhoom, taaron ko choom
aaya tera zamaana
ek nazar kisi ne dekha aur dil hua deewaana
hai baat bas itni si, aur ban gaya afsaana

baaje mora bichhua to mat chaloon chaal
dhak dhak dil mera deta jaaye taal
baaje mora bichhua to mat chaloon chaal
dhak dhak dil mera deta jaaye taal
udey hai chunar jaise shaayar ka khayaal
jaane kaisa jaadu leke aaya hai ye saal
aankhen churaaun, chhup chhup ke gaaun
main ek naya taraana
ek nazar kisi ne dekha aur dil hua deewaana
hai baat bas itni si, aur ban gaya afsaana

nayi nayi duniya hai main hoon anjaan
abhi abhi kisi se huyi hai pehchaan
nayi nayi duniya hai main hoon anjaan
abhi abhi kisi se huyi hai pehchaan
soch soch haar gayaa main hoon hairaan
tumhen kis naam se pukaaroon mehmaan
sapna kahoon, ki apna kahoon
ki rangeen ek fasaana
ek nazar kisi ne dekha aur dil hua deewaana
hai baat bas itni si, aur ban gaya afsaana
ek nazar kisi ne dekha aur dil huaa deewaana
hai baat bas itni si, aur ban gaya afsaana

This is the only post which mentions the year of the movie as 1961, where as the other posts for Rangoli mention 1962. It seems to be 1961 mentioned in most websites. Could you please confirm? Thank you.
