Jeene ki soorat ho gayee

Posted on: July 28, 2012

“Tohfa” (1947) is a movie about which little is known now. From internet, I can gather that the movie had
Nawab, Veera, Shahnawaz, Anuradha, Rehman, Misra, Agha etc in it.

Here is a duet song from this movie. It is sung by Mukesh and Hamida Bano. Lyricist is not known. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us about the lyricist.

Music is composed by M A Rauf.

Only the audio of this song is available so it is difficult to guess about the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.

Song-Jeene ki soorat ho gayi (Tohfa)(1947) Singers-Mukesh, Hamida Bano, Lyrics-Nazir Hyderabadi, MD-M A Rauf

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

jeene ki surat ho gayi
aur teri badaulat ho gayi
jab dard se chaahat ho gayi
jab dard se chaahat ho gayi
samjho ke mohabbat ho gayi
samjho ke mohabbat ho gayi

jab haule-haule mann dole
jab haule-haule mann dole
aur apni dhun mein kachhu bole
aur apani dhun mein kachhu bole
naino mein kaajal ras ghole
naino mein kaajal ras ghole
samjho ke mohabbat ho gayi
samjho ke mohabbat ho gayi

jab rasiyaan naache gaayen
jab rasiyaan naache gaaye
jab taare saaz bajaaye
jab taare saaz bajaaye
aur jhoomen mastt hawaayen
aur jhoomen mastt hawaayen
samjho ke mohabbat ho gayi
samjho ke mohabbat ho gayi

bewajah kalaayi jab jhanke
bewajah kalaayi jab janke
chhan-chhan chhan-chhan payal chhanke
chhan-chhan chhan-chhan payal chhanke
aur nayan ka pyaala bhi khanke
aur nayan ka pyaala bhi khanke
samjho ke mohabbat ho gayi
samjho ke mohabbat ho gayi

Atul ji,
TOHFA-1947 was a Seth bros. film directed by Agha jani Kashmiri,who also wrote some lyrics in the film.There were total of 6 lyricists for 10 songs.
The above song is written by Nazir hyderabadi.The other lyricists were Sakib lucknowi,Arju Lucknowi,Shant Arora and Rafiq gaznavi.
Though the MD was one M.A.Rauf,the musical effects were by Rafiq Gaznavi.
M.A.Rauf was from Hyderabad and a graduate from osmania University,in those days.He always used to put Osmania in brackets after his name.His songs from Tohfa perticularly by Mukesh were tremendous hits and Mukesh himself liked those songs.Rauf also gave music to Beete Din-1947 and Basera-1950.


Great info. Thanks
