Nazar ne keh diya afsaana mere pyaar ka

Posted on: November 12, 2011


In 1970s, kids of my age (and for that matter much of the Indian population) who were used to movie songs of the kind popular in 1970s, found the singing style of old songs quite amusing. And Saigal’s singing style was the source of big mirth among people. There were people who would sing in Saigal style for the purpose of amusing themselves and others. Songs like “jab dil hi toot gaya” were “popular” for this purpose.

Another song that was quite a popular Saigal song was “nazar ne keh diya afsaana mere pyaar ka”, much in “demand” for those needing to amuse themselves.

Incidentally, “nazar ne keh diyaa” was not at all a Saigal song. It was sung by C H Atma, a Saigal clone who was singing in Saigal style in 1950s, after Saigal’s demise in 1940s. People identifying this song as a Saigal song is akin to the incident when a Charlie Chaplin look alike contest was held and the real Charlie Chaplin , who also participated only came second !

Jokes apart, this C H Atma song from “Bhai Sahab” (1954) is one of the most memorable songs sung by C H Atma in his career. This song was frequently played in Radi Ceylon’s “Puraani filmon ke geet” programme and people not paying attention could well have been left wondering why a Saigal song was being played in the middle of the programme instead of at its customary positing at the stroke of 8 A M.

“Bhai Sahab”(1954) was a Pancholi Arts production and it was directed by Ravindra Dave. C H Atma, like his idol had also acted in this movie as the hero. this movie also had Poornima, Smriti Biswas, Ratan Kumar etc in it.

Here is this famous song from the past. Shailendra is the lyricist. Ninu Majumdar (who makes a debut in this blog with this song) is the music director.


Song-Nazar ne keh diya afsaana mere pyaar ka (Bhai Sahab)(1954) Singer-C H Atma, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Ninu Majumdar

Lyrics

nazar ne keh diyaa
nazar ne keh diyaa afsaanaa mere pyaar kaa
hameshaa aankh mein dil rehtaa hai dildaar kaa
nazar ne keh diyaa
nazar ne keh diyaa afsaanaa mere pyaar kaa
hameshaa aankh mein dil rehtaa hai dildaar kaa

khuley to raaz-e-ishq yoon khuley
khuley to raaz-e-ishq yoon khuley
kisi bhi gair ko khabar na miley
samajhne waalaa samajh ley
ye bhi andaaz hai is baat ke izhaar kaa
hameshaa aankh mein dil rehtaa hai dildaar kaa
nazar ne keh diyaa
nazar ne keh diyaa afasaanaa mere pyaar kaa
hameshaa aankh mein dil rehtaa hai dildaar kaa

jabse huaa hai teraa ishaaraa
jabse huaa hai teraa ishaaraa
bas mein nahin hai dil bhi hamaaraa
bas mein nahin hai dil bhi hamaaraa
qasam gayi qaraar toot gayaa
khudi kaa aitbaar toot gayaa
ki sabar tootne lagaa
bahaar boli ye maukaa nahin inkaar kaa
hameshaa aankh mein dil rehtaa hai dildaar kaa
nazar ne keh diyaa
nazar ne keh diyaa afsaanaa mere pyaar kaa
hameshaa aankh mein dil rehtaa hai dildaar kaa
