Nightingale Noorjehan – 3

‘Phoolon mein nazar yeh kaun aaya’ is Noorjehan’s fourth song from the 1946 Film ‘Hamjoli’ to appear in the blog. one song from this movie ‘yeh desh hamara pyaara’ was already discussed earlier on this blog before I took up the task of discussing her songs in the blog.

Somehow I missed seeing this film, as till 1949 I was in a small town, where the touring cinema used to come once in a while. After coming to Mumbai (then Bombay), in 1949, I started seeing cinema with a vengeance. To see films which were not the current runners I used to visit the locations, where second and third run films were shown in a small group of theaters. They were in an area known as Pilhouse, (from original Play House), generally prohibited area for students and so called ‘decent people’, as it was in the ‘red light district’. The system in those theaters was very convenient for any time visiters, as you could buy a ticket and enter at any time and could sit through the next show to complete the beginning of the film which you had missed initially. You could even sit till the end of the film if you wished. So many musical films I had sat through and had seen them one and a half times!! I still repent that I could not see some of Noorjehan’s films like Hamjoli, Badi Maa, Dost, Duhayee etc during that period..

We are fortunate that we still have her melodious songs from those films and most important, this wonderful blog where we can enjoy the songs of yester-years.

As an answer to her question ‘Phoolon mein nazar yeh kaun aaya?’ I would say ‘I see her ever smiling, charming and hypnotizing round face in those flowers.’ If you had seen her few films, you too can close your eyes and visualize the same effect while listening to her sweet songs.


Song– Phoolon Mein Nazar Yeh Kaun Aaya (Hamjoli)(1946) Singer-Noorjehaan, Lyrics-Anjum Pilibhiti, MD- Hafiz Khan

Lyrics

phoolon mein nazar yeh kaun aaya
kaun aaya
phoolon mein nazar yeh kaun aaya
kaun aaya
bholepan se aankh mein aa kar
dil mein jo muskaaya
kaun aaya
bholepan se aankh mein aa kar
dil mein jo muskaaya
kaun aaya
phoolon mein nazar yeh kaun aaya
kaun aaya

jaane nazar mein kya thha jaadoo u u
dil pe nahin jo apnaa kaaboo u
jaane nazar mein kya thha jaadoo u u
dil pe nahin jo apnaa kaaboo u u u
hosh itna sa nahin ke
hosh itna sa nahin ke
saraa hosh ganwaayaa
kaun aaya
hosh itna sa nahin ke
saraa hosh ganwaayaa
kaun aaya
phoolon mein nazar yeh kaun aaya
kaun aaya

kisne dikhaa ke mukhda sundar ar
bhar di bijliyaan dil ke andar
kis ne dikhaa ke mukhda sundar
bhar di bijliyaan dil ke andar r r r
chain nahin ab haaye man ko
chain nahin ab haaye man ko
kya zamaana aaya
kaun aaya
chain nahin ab haaye man ko
kya zamaana aaya
kaun aaya
phoolon mein nazar yeh kaun aaya
kaun aaya
phoolon mein nazar yeh kaun aaya
kaun aaya
