Nainon se nain milaa ke : Song No. 5
—————————————

This song is from the film ‘Jaan Pehchan ‘ (1950). Khemchand Prakash and Manna Dey are the music directors of this film and the lyricist is Shakeel Badayuni. The song is picturized on Nargis, as can be seen in the video.

It is a solo song by Geeta Roy/Dutt, one of the five solos by her in the film. Four songs from this film are already posted, making this the fifth song. The film starred Raj Kapoor and Nargis, the hit pair of the season.

It appears that Raj Kapoor has gone away and has not returned, hence Nargis is singing this song, lamenting that the hero has forgotten her. During the song, some scenes are showing an operation in progress in a hospital. Presumably, it is Raj Kapoor who is being operated upon. Predictably that is the reason why Raj Kapoor has not returned to Nargis. Communication in those days was nowhere near as good and instantaneous as it is now and that meant that communication gap (literal as well as figurative) was common theme in life as well as in movies.

Communication gap, if not literal, then the figurative one can be seen even today. Human traits like stubbornness, pride and ego on part of characters add up to logistical problems and compound matters. Not just in this film but that is what is generally observed all around us also. Especially irritating are the female characters shown in films and TV, where they would suffer timidly and masochistically in silence without opening their mouth. I have no tolerance for such sufferance.

What I like eminently better are the longish jhumkas that Nargis is wearing in the song 🙂 . And also the necklace.

Song-Naina mila ke dil chheena (Jaan Pehchaan)(1950) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Khemchand Prakash

Lyrics

naina milaa ke
dil chheena aa
naina milaa ke
dil chheena aa
haay sajan kyun bhool gaye ae
haay balam kyun bhool gaye
naina milaa ke
dil chheena aa
naina milaa ke

jab se gaye
o piyaa
chain na aaye
jab se gaye
o piyaa
chain na aaye
murjhaaye dil ki kali
yaad sataaye
yaad sataaye
jeena kahaan hai ab jeenaa aa
jeena kahaan hai ab jeenaa aa
haay sajan kyun bhool gaye
haay balam kyun bhool gaye

dil ki khabar hi na li
dil ko lubhaa ke
dil ki khabar hi na li
dil ko lubhaa ke
bhoole ho aise preetam
apna banaa ke
bhoole ho aise preetam
apna banaa ke
jaise miley thhey kabhi naa aa aa
jaise miley thhey kabhi naa aa
haay sajan kyun bhool gaye
haay balam kyun bhool gaye

manwaa ye chaahe geet gaaun
koyi geet gaaun
manwaa ye chaahe geet gaaun
koyi geet gaaun
kaise sunaaun haay
kis ko sunaaun
kaise sunaaun haay
kis ko sunaaun
toot gayee hai man beenaa aa
toot gayee hai man beenaa aa
toot gayee hai man beenaa
haay sajan kyun bhool gaye
haay balam kyun bhool gaye

Atul ji,

Good of you to elaborate. Or there would have really been a communication gap !
