Mausam hai aashiqaana...

Yet again, it's one of those songs that has the last stanza of the song starting off entirely differently than the rest of the stanzas. One of my favorite songs of Pakeezah and the one I never get bored of listening to or watching. Goosebumpy music of Ghulam Mohammad and out of this world lyrics by none other than Kamal Amrohi sahab. I didn't know his whole name was Syed Anwar Hyder Kamal Amrohi. He's the same one who has also penned kahin ek maasoom naazuk si ladki.

The best part is I was able to find the extended clip of this song on youtube with the scene and dialogs before the song starts. I really do wish the clip had the music after the song completes... the one where Raj Kumar comes riding on horseback and is awestruck to see her asleep in his tent for the first time; she's awake yet pretends to be asleep and mumbles the dialog "ya allah.." (or something like that). What classy movies they used to make back then...


Him: yeh phir ek barasti hui raat hai... aur main safar mein hoon. mere siva compartment mein aur koi nahin... lekin... us saamne wale berth par meri ek suhaani yaad phir karvat badal rahi hai aur mehndi se racha hua wohi haseen paanv mujhe aaj bhi baar baar dans raha hai... yeh kya hai? is kaifiyat ka naam kya hai?

Her: mohabbat!

mausam hai aashiqaana
aye dil kahin se unko
aise mein dhoondh laana (2)

mausam hai aashiqaana
aye dil kahin se unko
aise mein dhoondh laana (2)

mausam hai aashiqaana

kehna ke rut jawaan hai aur hum taras rahe hai
kaali ghataa ke saaye birahan ko dans rahe hai
dar hai na maar daale
saawan ka kya thikaanaa (2)
mausam hai aashiqaana

sooraj kahin bhi jaaye
tum par na dhoop aaye (2)
aa aa aa
tum ko pukaarte hai in gesuon ke saaye
aa jaao main banaa doon
palkon ka shaamiyaanaa (2)
mausam hai aashiqaana

phirte hai hum akele baahon mein koyi le le
aakhir koyi kahaan tak tanhaaiyon se khele
din ho gaye hai zaalim
raaten hai qaatilaana (2)
mausam hai aashiqaana

aa aa aa...
yeh raat yeh khaamoshi
yeh khaab se nazaare (2)
jugnu hai yaa zameen par utare hue hai taare
bekhaab meri aankhen (2)
madhosh hai zamaana (2)

mausam hai aashiqaana
aye dil kahin se unko
aise mein dhoondh laana (2)

mausam hai aashiqaana...
