Yeh Waadiyaan Yeh Fizaayen...

At first, when I was listening to the song, I thought it must have been picturized on Shashi Kapoor. Or at least that's what it sounded like. But when I watched it, I was completely blown away by seeing Sunil Dutt! Nice to see him paired with young and beautiful Nanda.

Our hero is more than 6 ft tall and heroine is less than even 5 ft so this is how they choose to show them to hide the height difference. Quite interesting, as one doesn't even notice all that until you start paying attention.

I find this as sweet as a lullaby/lori and it just makes me want to keep listening to it. Thanks to Rafi sahab, Sahir ji and music maestro Ravi.


yeh waadiyaan yeh fizaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe (2)
khaamoshiyon ki sadaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe
yeh waadiyaan yeh fizaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe

taras rahe hai jawaan phool hoth chhoone ko (2)
machal machal ke hawaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe (2)
khaamoshiyon ki sadaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe
yeh waadiyaan yeh fizaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe

tumhaari zulfon se khushboo ki bheekh lene ko (2)
jhuki jhuki si ghataayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe (2)
khaamoshiyon ki sadaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe (pay attention to how he sings the word khaamoshiyon)
yeh waadiyaan yeh fizaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe

haseen champayi pairon ko jab se dekhaa hai haaye
haseen champayi pairon ko jab se dekhaa hai
nadi ki mast adaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe (2)
khaamoshiyon ki sadaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe
yeh waadiyaan yeh fizaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe

(reminds me of this Hariharan song that goes like "raat mehke to yoon hi hota hai")

mera kahaa na suno inn ki baat to sun lo (2)
har ek dil ki duaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe (2)
khaamoshiyon ki sadaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe
yeh waadiyaan yeh fizaayen bulaa rahi hai tumhe

I love that line, haseen champai pairon ko jab se dekha hai.

Guys like raving about girls' faces but admiring feet is something else

Avdi, that brought a smile on my face. :) So true, we don't see the men praising the girls' feet. Although, I do recall one such instance: in the famous "aap ke paanv bahot haseen hai inhe zameen pe mat utaariyega maile ho jaayenge" dialog of Raj Kumar in Pakeezah. And what a way to praise someone's feet. Who wouldn't fall in love with that man!?
