Ek baar muskuraa do

Posted on: March 25, 2013


This article is written by Shekhar Gupta, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Recently our Mr. Sadanand Kamath has posted on this Blog two superb numbers by Jaganmoy Mitra, better known as Jagmohan Sursagar, together with rich information (and links) on this veritable ocean of melody. They are: O varsha ke pehle baadal from Meghdoot (1945), and a non-filmy song Mat kar saaj-singaar sundari.

Another surpassingly romantic non-filmy song – and my favourite – in the Sursagar’s velvety voice is Ek baar muskura do. I have not been able to find out the names of the lyricist and music director (which I request our knowledgeable readers to add through their comments). But what we do have is not only the audio of this superlatively melodious number but also a video clip from a Doordarshan recording of the Sursagar’s live performance of the same number.

Song-Ek baar muskura do (Jagmohan Sursagar NFS)(1950) Singer-Jagmohan Sursagar

Lyrics

ek baar muskura do
ek baar muskura do
ek baar muskura do
ek baar muskura do

honthon ki ek ada se
honthon ki ek ada se
sau bijaliyaan giraa do
ek baar
ek baar
ek baar muskura do

is dil ka haal sun ke
mera sawaal sun ke
is dil ka haal sun ke
mera sawaal sun ke
aanchal sambhaal ke tum
sharmaa ke sar jhuka do
ek baar
ek baar
ek baar muskuraa do

haan na ke beech mein hoon
kyaa samjhoon kyaa na samajhoon
haan na ke beech mein hoon
kyaa samajhoon kyaa na samajhoon
jo kah sako na munh se
andaaz se bataa do
jo kah sako na munh se
andaaz se bataa do

ye nanhi nanhi kaliyaan
ye nanhi nanhi kaliyaan
ye phool aur ye kyaari
halki si ek hansi ki sabko hai itnzaari
ghoonghat hata ke haan…
ghoonghat hataa ke inka armaan bhi mita do
ek baar muskura do
ek baar muskura do
ek baar muskura do

Thanks for the post. I don’t know as to how I missed this clip on YT. In fact, I thought that this NFS may not have been uploaded on YT.

Sadanandji, in fact your two postings of the Sursagar’s numbers last week inspired me to post this number. So, it’s I who owes thanks to you!
