Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Ye dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana

Posted on: July 16, 2013


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

Sometimes you chance upon a song which is not too well known; but is so sweet and captivating, is so well picturised, dance sequence so well executed, that you can’t but help but be utterly charmed by it.

A couple of days ago I heard this beautiful gem that a friend posted on facebook. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Laxmi Chhaaya dances to the song as only she can, with utter abandon. The setting of the song is a typical nightclub. There are people drinking or talking, amongst them we spot Nutan and Rehman talking animatedly. Rehman seems to be intent on making Nutan drink something which seems to be laced with an intoxicant. In such a setting, the song is particularly provocative.

Laxmi Chhaaya’s get up, a long black dress, curly wig and smoky eyes, somehow remind me of Mumtaz. She looks very good. There is another lady that gets up to dance and sing with her. It is hard to make out who she is. Maybe a knowledgeable reader of this blog, or one of our resident computerjees – Arunji or Sudhirji – can help.

In fact little is known about the movie Sanjh ki Bela. It seems to have been an obscure movie. It looks like it was too long in the making and sank without a trace. I remember there was a Gulshan Nanda novel by the same name. Gulshan Nanda’s novels provided stories to many movies during the 70s. It is likely that the movie was based on his novel. As I know nothing about the movie, I cannot say so definitely.

Again, maybe a reader with more knowledge can help us out.

From the comment section on the youtube video I picked up the following comment by a viewer called Levin Mendes.
“The band thats shown during the intro is “Wild Rangers” Pop band of the 70’s. Teddy on drums, Augustine on lead guitars, Steve on sax, Chris on rhythm guitars and Caje doing the Trumpet roll.”

Here goes the song. Sung by Asha Bhonsle, Music by Ravi and lyrics by Prem Dhawan.


Song-Ye dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana (Saanjh Ki Bela)(1980) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

ye dil hai teri hi nigahon ka nishaana
ye dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana
tu hi jisne banaya hai diwana
ye dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana
aaja gale se lag ja re
karke koi bahana
yeh dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana
ye dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana

laa la la la la la la la la la
lallala la la laa
laa lalalala

tere hi sapne,
dil ko bhi dekhoon
jaane mujhe kya hua
tere hi sapne,
dil ko bhi dekhoon
jaane mujhe kya hua
raaton ko chheden jab teri baaten
pal me savera hua
aaja gale se lag ja re,
kar ke koi bahaana
yeh dil hai teri hi nighaaon ka nishaana
yeh dil hai teri hi nighaaon ka nishaana
tu hi hai jisne banaaya hai deewaana
yeh dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana

jab se mili hain
tujh se yeh nazren
kuchh bekaraari si hai ae ae ae
jab se mili hain
tujh se yeh nazren
kuch bekaraari si hai
pee to nahin hai,
phir bhi na jaane
kyun yeh khumaari si hai
aaja gale se lag jaa re
kar ke koi bahaana
yeh dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana
yeh dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana
tu hi hai jisne banaaya hai deewaana
yeh dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana

kuchh to niraali
teri adaa hai
tujhpe jo marte hain ham
kuchh to niraali
teri adaa hai,
tujhpe jo marte hain ham
poocha to hota
toone o zaalim
kyun aahen bharte hain ham
aaja gale se lag jaa re
kar ke koi bahaana
yeh dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana
yeh dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana
tu hi hai jisne banaaya hai deewaana
yeh dil hai teri hi nigaahon ka nishaana
yeh dil hai teri hi nigahon ka nishana

I liked Laxmi Chhaya a lot. Not only was she pretty but she was a good dancer too. “Jaan pehchaan ho” and her dances/songs in Mera Gaon Mera Desh have stood the test of time.

This particular song seems to be a mid-70s type song. Certainly not a 1980 song. Even the dance style (of the background dancers) is very late 60s/early 70s. I think this movie might have had a delayed release. Also, Mukesh has sung for this movie – and he died in 1976. Rehman died in 1979.

Maybe somebody can give us more info about this movie and if it got delayed. And why.

Nice write-up, btw, Ava.

Thank you Raja.

Your observation on the ‘dating’ of the video is very useful 🙂

Ava Suri ji,

Thanks for positng this quintessential Ravi composition – a lovely melody.

The year of this film from various sources (including Geet Kosh), is 1980.

This film definitely seems to be a victim of a very delayed release. Nutan had already transitioned to somewhat senior roles in early seventies. Recall ‘Anuraag’ (1972) and ‘Saudaagar’ (1973). The Nutan in this clip looks much younger, and so a late 1960s or very early 1970s seems to be the right date when this song would have been shot.

It is interesting also to note that the gentleman sitting with the second lady who joins the singing, seems familiar. The view is just for couple of seconds. I can’t place the name to his face either. Maybe Prakash ji can help us here.

And LOL, ‘resident computer jees’ – :).

Nice post Ava ji !! listening this song for the first time.
Not heard about this movie and neither watched also. But, since, it is based on Gulshan Nanda’s novel, might be interesting to watch.

Like

I THINK it is, because there is a novel by this name. During this period a lot of Gulshan Nanda novels were used for films, hence this hunch.

Thank you Avinashji 🙂

I may be wrong, But she looks like SUJATHA BAKSHI aka Sujatha, who worked as a dance assistant to dance master Kamal(and also appeared as a main dancer in many movies during late 70`s) . Please correct me If I am wrong. Remember,Main andhere mein teer chalaa rahaa hoon.

Yeah, u r wrong. Sleep well. Try another day!

Sanjh Ki Bela is a remake of “Kati Patang” or more accurately of the Hollywood movie “No Man of Her Own” which itself was based on Cornell Woolrich’s novel “I married a dead man.” Sanjh Ki Bela adheres more closely to the Hollywood movie than Kati Patang – especially when it comes to Nutan’s character – but still “Indianizes” her.

I’ll check my copy of the movie and see if I can figure out who the second actress in this song is.

Shalini – You have seen the movie? Wow! In fact, Gulshan Nanda himself stole the theme from the original novel, I think. Kati Patang was also written by him.

I really must try to get my hands on that novel. Both the Gulshan Nanda one and the Woolrich one.

Thank you so much for adding to this discussion 🙂
