Milte hi nazar tumse ham ho gaye deewaane

Posted on: April 6, 2011


This article is written by Raja, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie songs and a regular contributor of articles to this blog.

Up until about a year ago, I knew just one song of the movie “Ustadon Ke Ustad” (1963). This was the famous Rafi saab song “sau baar janam lenge”.

Then, about a year ago, I heard a catchy song “haseenon se to bas saaheb” from this movie. I loved it the very first time I heard it.

Only the other day, I came across an Asha Bhosle song “raat chup hai” from this movie that I liked a lot.

And now, I realize that this movie also has a lovely qawwali number!

What a treasure-trove of songs this movie is! And that, for a movie that till a year ago, I’d only known for “sau baar janam lenge”.

I first heard this qawwali number about a year ago but at that time it did not register in my brain that this was from this movie. I am a massive fan of qawwalis – they have so much life in them, not to mention the beautiful lyrics, the setting, the expressions, hand-clapping et al. All loads of fun.

Often a qawwali is in competition format – this one is no exception. The main attraction here however is the presence of Shakeela Bano Bhopali, renowned qawwaal of yesteryear, also known as Mallika-e-Qawwaal.

She plays herself here – the scene is that she has been “challenged” for a qawwali competition that is to take place. Clearly, Pradeep Kumar and Sheikh Mukhtar are in the wrong place at the wrong time, for they are mistaken to be the challengers. Despite their attempts to oil out of the situation, they are forced to play along. The result is this delightful qawwali – which is taken to a different level by Shakeela Bano’s mannerisms and style. And oh, she looks really beautiful too.

All in all, this is a pleasure to watch and listen to. Everytime I listen to a qawwali I cannot help feeling sad that this art form has become all but extinct in today’s Bollywood cinema. Perhaps a reflection of the times we live in. Sigh!

Anyway, let’s enjoy the legacy of what we DO have with us, while we can. And this one is definitely worth listening to and watching many times!


Song-Milte hi nazar tumse (Ustaadon Ke Ustaad) (1963) Singers-Rafi, Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa
aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa
Milte hi nazar tumse
Hum ho gaye deewaane
Milte hi nazar tumse
Hum ho gaye deewaane
Aagaaz to achcha hai
Anjaam khuda jaane,
haay
Milte hi nazar tumse
Hum ho gaye deewaane

Anjaamey mohabbat se
Tum ho abhi begaaney
Anjaamey mohabbat se
Tum ho abhi begaaney
Sholon se ulajhtey ho
Deewaane ho deewaane,
haay
Anjaamey mohabbat se
Tum ho abhi begaaney

Tum husn-e-mujassim ho
Rangeen qayaamat ho
Tum husn-e-mujassim ho
Rangeen qayaamat ho
Phool zulfon mein chuney maang bhari taaron se
Rang milta hai dehektey huye angaaron se
aaaa
Mast aankhon pe ghumaan hota hai maikhaanon ka
Har nazar mein hai nashaa saikdon paimaanon ka
Aaa
Jaane kyaa husn ke jalwon mein nazar aata hai
arre
dekhne waalon ka imaan chala jaata hai
Aaa
Jaane kyaa husn ke jalwon mein nazar aata hai
Dekhne waalon kaa imaan chala jaata hai
Isi liye to kahaa thaa
Tum husn-e-mujassim ho
Rangeen qayaamat ho
Tum husn-e-mujassim ho
Rangeen qayaamat ho ho
Rangeen qayaamat ho
aahe waa
Rangeen qayaamat ho
Baithey hain muqaabil mein
Arrey baithey hain muqaabil mein
Hum teer-e-nazar taaney
Baithey hain muqaabil mein
Hum teer-e-nazar taaney
Aagaaz to achcha hai
Anjaam khuda jaane re,
haay
Milte hi nazar tumse
Hum ho gaye deewaane

Naadaan ho jaano kyaa
Tum husn ki fitrat ko,
haay
Naadaan ho jaano kyaa
Tum husn ki fitrat ko
Jo ghataaon ki tarah shaanon se lehraati hai
Haan wohi zulfen kabhi naag bhi ban jaati hain
Aankhen maikhaane hain lekin inhi maikhaanon mein
aa aa
Zeher bhi mai ki jagah hota hai paimaanon mein
zabt ki taab na ho jisme wo insaan hi kya
Ek nazar mein jo chalaa jaaye wo imaan hi kya
zabt ki taab na ho jisme wo insaan hi kya
Ek nazar mein jo chalaa jaaye wo imaan hi kya
Naadaan ho jaano kyaa
Tum husn ki fitrat ko,
haay
Naadaan ho jaano kyaa
Tum husn ki fitrat ko
haay haay
Tum husn ki fitrat ko
aa aa
Tum husn ki fitrat ko

Andaaz hi dekhe hain
Tewar nahin pehchaane
Andaaz hi dekhe hain
Tewar nahin pehchaane
Sholon se ulajhtey ho
Deewaane ho deewaane,
haay
Anjaamey mohabbat se
Tum ho abhi begaaney
aahe
Milte hi nazar tumse
Hum ho gaye deewaane

aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
Milte hi nazar tumse
Hum ho gaye deewaane
Anjaamey mohabbat se
Tum ho abhi begaaney
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
Anjaamey mohabbat se
Tum ho abhi begaaney
aa aa aa aa
Anjaamey mohabbat se
Tum ho abhi begaaney
Milte hi nazar tumse
Hum ho gaye deewaane
Deewaane

I would dearly love to hear a qawwali in Shakeela Bano Bhopali’s own voice some day. Probably there is one on YT 🙂 I should look! This is a lovely song indeed.

This song was indeed recorded in her voice originally but then it was re recorded in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. I have no idea why.

Indeed it is a lovely qawwali indeed.

And I thank Raja for this writeup which is his 50th post as a guest contributor in this blog. That is a massive contribution indeed, seeing how much time and effort he puts in each of his articles. This is in addition to all the sub titling that he does for the benefit of non Hindi speaking followers of Hindi movies in other blogs.

On my behalf and on behalf of my readers, I thank Raja from the core of my heart.
