Betaab hai dil bechain nazar

This article is meant to be posted in If this article appears in sites like and etc then it is piracy of the copyright content of and is a punishable offence under the existing laws.

some people may think that this article is discussing the song “betaab nazar bechain jigar” from “Yaasmeen” (1955). No, that song was covered in the blog in 2008 itself. This song, like the “Yaasmeen” (1955) song, is also sung by Talat Mehmood. But this song is from a movie called “Behram Daaku”(1959).

Unlike “Yaasmeen”(1955), “Behram Daaku”(1959) is a rare movie with obscure songs. This movie was directed by Akkoo for Afzal Films, Bombay. The movie had Manhar Desai, Chitra, Sheikh, Ashraf Khan, Habib, Tuntun, Shyam Kumar, Raj Adib, Menka Kumari, Daraj, Sharda, Babulal, Ranjana etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it that were sung by five singers and were penned by three lyricists.

Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song, as mentioned earlier, is sung by Talat Mehmood. This song is aas good to listen to, if not better than the somewhat similarly worded song from ‘Yaasmeen”(1955). It must be regarded as a forgotten gem from a forgotten movie.

Saba Afghani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sadat.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Behraam Daaku”(1959) makes its debut in the movie.

There were 114 movies that were released in 1959. This happens to be the 103rd movie from 1959 to get introduced in the blog. The movies from 1959 that are yet to find representation in the blog are- “Bhagwaan aur Shaitaan”, “Bhakt Prahlad”, “Charnon Ki Daasi”, “Cheeni Jaadoogar”, “Hazaar Pariyaan”, “Hunterwaali”, “Miss Hunterwaali”, “Police Station”, “Toofaani Teerandaaz” and “Wrong Number”. In addition, there was one movie called “Swarg Se Sundar Desh Hamaara” whose song details are not known as far as HFGK is concerned.


Song-Betaab hai dil bechain nazar(Behraam Daaku)(1959) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Saba Afghani, MD-Sadat


betaab hai dil
bechain nazar
anjaam ho kya
maaloom nahin
apni hi nahin kuchh ham ko khabar
unka bhi pata maaloom nahin
betaab hai dil
bechain nazar

qismat ye kahaan le aayi hai ae ae
mehfil bhi jahaan tanhaai hai
qismat ye kahaan le aayi hai
mehfil bhi jahaan tanhaai hai ae ae ae
phoolon se nikalte hain shole
ye raaz hai kya maaloom nahin
betaab hai dil
bechain nazar

ham bhool gaye manzil ka nishaan aan aan
ab yaad nahin jaana hai kahaan
ham bhool gaye manzil ka nishaan aan
ab yaad nahin jaana hai kahaan aan aan aan
bas unki tamanna hai dil mein
kuchh iske siwa maaloom nahin
betaab hai dil
bechain nazar
anjaam ho kya
maaloom nahin
betaab hai dil
