Hans hans ke haseenon se nazar chaar kiye jaa

Posted on: August 19, 2012


The lyricists of Hindi movies during its golden era tended to come from literary background. Many of them in fact were first noticed by movie makers during their kavi sammelans/ mushairas etc.

These lyricists were so good that their works were often included in textbooks to be taught to students of Hindi/Urdu. A few of these lyricists actually went on to win high literary awards viz Gyanpeeth Award, Sahitya Academy Award etc.

Jaan Nisaar Akhtar was one such lyricist. He had come from a family of scholars. His father (Muztar Khairabadi) and grand father (Fazl e Haq Khairabadi) were important literary figures of their times.

After obtaining B A Honours and M A degrees from AMU, he worked in Hamidia College of Bhopal for some time before resigning from his job and went to Bombay to try his luck as a lyricist in Hindi movies.

There he struggled to get a foothold in the industry. He was financially supported by his wife (she was a lady of letters too) who continued to work in Hamidia College of Bhopal till she died of cancer in 1953.

After a struggle of more than half a decade, breakthrough came for Jaan Nisaar Akhtar with the songs of “Yaasmeen” (1955) which became hugely popular.

Jaan Nisaar Akhtar was not as prolific a lyricist as many of his contemporaries. If wikipedia is to be believed then he wrote only 151 songs for Hindi movies in his over two decades long career as a lyricist. This blog already had as many as 90 of his lyrics, so it means that we are already close to discussing his entire body of work as far as Hindi movie lyrics are concerned.

For his contributions to Urdu literature, he was conferred the prestigious Sahitya Academy Award in 1976.

Jaan Nisaar Akhtar (14 feb 1914- 19 aug 1976) breathed his last on this day 36 years ago. He left behind several children, all of them well known figures in the fields of arts. Javed Akhtar is his son, and a few well known movie world figures of today , viz. Farhan Akhtar. Zoya Akhtar etc are his grand children.

As noted above, “Yaasmeen” (1955) was the breakthrough movie for Jaan Nisaar Akhtar as a lyricist. All songs of this movie (except one song, which was written by Tanvir Naqvi) were written by Jaan Nisaar Akhtar. As many as eight songs from this movie have already been discussed.

On the occasion of the 36th death anniversary of Jaan Nisaar Akhtar today (19 august 2012), here is a song from “Yaasmeen” (1955). It is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Vyjyanti Mala. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

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

Song-Hans hans ke haseenon se nazar chaar kiye jaa (Yasmeen)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

hans hans ke haseeno se nazar chaar kiye ja
jo bhi kare pyaar usse pyaar kiye ja
hans hans ke haseenon se nazar chaar kiye ja
jo bhi kare pyar usse pyaar kiye ja

ye zulf ye aabru, ye lachkati hui baahe
bijli si giraati hui khaamosh nigaahe
ye zulf ye abru, ye lachkati hui baahen
bijli si giraati hui khaamosh nigaahen
hai taaqat-e-deedaar to deedaar kiye ja
hans hans ke haseeno se nazar chaar kiye ja
jo bhi kare pyaar usse pyaar kiye ja
hans hans ke haseenon se nazar chaar kiye ja
jo bhi kare pyaar usse pyaar kiye ja

laazim hai mohabbat mein lagaavat bhi ada bhi
ulfat mein mile kuchh to tadapne ka maza bhi
laazim hai mohabbat mein lagaavat bhi ada bhi
ulfat mein mile kuchh to tadapne ka maza bhi
iqraar kiye ja, kabhi inkaar kiye ja
hans hans ke haseenon se nazar chaar kiye ja
jo bhi kare pyaar usse pyaar kiye ja
hans hans ke haseenon se nazar chaar kiye ja
jo bhi kare pyaar usse pyaar kiye ja

har ek ada husn ki aankhon mein basa le
seene mein zara ishq ka toofaan jaga le
soyi hui taqdeer ko bedaar kiye ja
hans hans ke haseenon se nazar chaar kiye ja
jo bhi kare pyaar usse pyaar kiye ja
hans hans ke haseenon se nazar chaar kiye ja
jo bhi kare pyaar usse pyaar kiye ja
