Nightingale Noorjehaan – 2

I am trying to complete Noorjehan’s songs on this blog. The current film I am dealing with is ‘Hamjoli’.   Since I have all her songs in MP3 form, I was searching readymade clips on internet – specially YouTube. Almost all the songs of ‘Hamjoli’ I found there and most of them are uploaded there by Vidur Suri. I had seen that name in comments of our blog and I contacted him, thinking that he might be a person if not in my age group but a person above 50 or 60. Imagine my shocking (but pleasant) surprise, when I came to know that he is a lad of just 17 years! I salute him for taking interest in rare songs of half a century old films. Most of the ‘ Hamjoli’ songs that I propose to include on this blog are available online courtsey of Vidur Suri.

With that much of intro, the second song in this series is ‘Raaz Khulta Nazar Nahin Aataa’. Anjum Pilibhiti’s lyrics are tuned by Hafiz Khan. And the singer is nightingale Noorjehan.

(Dear Atulites, stop reading my boring write-up and start listening and enjoying the song. If you do not enjoy it first time, try to listen once more and I am sure you will start enjoying.)

Song – Raaz Khulta Nazar Nahin Aata (Hamjoli)(1946) Singer – Noorjehaan, Lyrics – Anjum Pilibhiti, MD – Hafiz Khan

Lyrics

raaz khulta
unh hun hunhu hun
ah haha hahaha raaz
khulta nazar nahin aata
kaun hun kya. .aa
kaun hun kya nazar nahin aata
raaz khulta nazar nahin aata

jis taraf jaaun saath hai dil ke
jis taraf jaaun saath hai dil ke
aur saaya nazar nahin aata
aur saaya nazar nahin aata
raaz khulta nazar nahin aata

jo tamasha banaa gaya mujhko
jo tamasha banaa gaya mujhko
wo tamasha nazar nahin aata
wo tamasha nazar nahin aata
raaz khulta nazar nahin aata

baaten sunta to hai kisi ki dil
baaten sunta to hai kisi ki dil
kehnewaala nazar nahin aata
kehnewaala nazar nahin aata
raaz khulta nazar nahin aata

subha ka noor jis se hai ‘anjum’
subha ka noor jis se hai ‘anjum’
wo sitara nazar nahin aata
wo sitara nazar nahin aata
raaz khulta nazar nahin aata
raaz khulta

राज़ खुलता
हूँ हूँ हूंहू हूँ
आह हाहा हाहाहा
राज़ खुलता नज़र नहीं आता
कौन हूँ क्या॰ ॰आ
कौन हूँ क्या नज़र नहीं आता
राज़ खुलता नज़र नहीं आता

जिस तरफ जाऊँ साथ है दिल के
जिस तरफ जाऊँ साथ है दिल के
और साया नज़र नहीं आता
और साया नज़र नहीं आता
राज़ खुलता नज़र नहीं आता

जो तमाशा बना गया मुझको
जो तमाशा बना गया मुझको
वो तमाशा नज़र नहीं आता
वो तमाशा नज़र नहीं आता
राज़ खुलता नज़र नहीं आता

बातें सुनता तो है किसी की दिल
बातें सुनता तो है किसी की दिल
कहने वाला नज़र नहीं आता
कहने वाला नज़र नहीं आता
राज़ खुलता नज़र नहीं आता

सुबह का नूर जिस से है ‘अंजुम’
सुबह का नूर जिस से है ‘अंजुम’
वो सितारा नज़र नहीं आता
वो सितारा नज़र नहीं आता
राज़ खुलता नज़र नहीं आता
राज़ खुलता

Bharat ji,
It is almost an year exactly-10-7-2014. On this day Atul ji had introduced Shri Vidur Suri ji on this Blog. Here is the link-

So, the readers have already been informed about him and his extra ordinary knowledge of old films and music. He is today’s Wonder Boy !

Bharatbhai,

You are correct to say that one needs to listen to this song 3-4 times to enjoy it. I liked Noorjehan’s rendering of slow tempo in the first verses followed by fast tempo in the second verses of first two antaras. Of course, credit should also go to MD Hafiz Khan for somewhat unusual composition.

By the way, recently, I have seen the advertisement of this film in December 1945 issue of FILMINDIA magazine in which the name of Sajjad Hussain was mentioned as Music Director. However, on later two advertisements, , the name of Hafiz Khan was mentioned with emphasis on ‘Hafiz Khan of Zeenat fame’.

A very different treatment and singing pattern of this ghazal, as pointed out by stalwarts – Bharat Bhai & Kamath ji. Most unusual.
Thanks a lot.
