My Favourite Mohammed Rafi Song - Jaag Dil E Diwana - Oonche Log (1965)


My Favorite Mohd Rafi Song

Today the 31st of July is the death anniversary of Mohammed Rafi. Here is my favourite Mohd Rafi Song - JAAG DIL-E-DEEWANA from a film called OONCHE LOG - the music director is Chitragupta.

Oonche Log was a unique suspense film with three heroes Ashok Kumar, Raaj Kumar and Feroz Khan. 

In order to refresh your memory, the video below has the movie titles followed by the song. So do have a look at the titles, the opening dialogue and then enjoy the melodious rendition of the song by Mohd Rafi


Jaag dil-e-deewana
rut jaagi
vasle yaar ki
Basi huyi zulf mein
aayi hai sabah pyar ki
Jaag dil-e-deewana...

Do dil ke kuch leke payaam aayi hai
chahat ke, kuch leke salaam aayi hai
dar pe tere subho khadhi
khoyi hai deedar ki

jaag dil-e-deewana...

Ek pari, kuch shaad si nashaadi si
baithi huyi, shabnam mein teri yaad ki
bheeg rahi hogi kahin
kali si gulzar ki

Jaag dil-e-deewana...

Aa mere dil, ab khawabon se mooh modh le
beeti huyi, sab raatein yehi chhodh de
tere to din raat hain
ab aankhon mein dildaar ki

jaag dil-e-deewana..
Rut jaagi vasle yaar ki
basi huyi zulf mein
aayi hai sabah pyar ki
jaag dil-e-deewana.

Notice how this difficult song is sung in a low voice yet so melodiously by the inimitable Mohd Rafi.
