459. Rafi's Romantic Song: Jitnee Haseen Ho Tum...


Movie: MANGU DADA (1970)

Lyrics: Jaan Nisar Akhtar
Music: C. Arjun


When beauty is matched by infidelity, Romantic Rafi sings: Jitnee Haseen Ho Tum…


Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original Urdu-Hindi Lyrics:



Jitnee haseen ho tum, haay, utnee hee bewafaa ho,
SO MUCH BEAUTIFUL AS YOU’RE, ALAS, AS MUCH FAITHLESS ARE YOU!


phir bhee mere liye tum
EVEN SO, FOR ME YOU’RE…


phir bhee mere liye tum, mai.n kyaa bataaoo.n kyaa ho
EVEN SO FOR ME, HOW SHOULD I REVEAL WHAT YOU ARE!


jitnee haseen ho tum…
SO MUCH BEAUTIFUL AS YOU ARE…


tum ko sajaa rakhaa hai,
YOU’VE BEEN KEPT ADORNED


palko.n kee chilmano.n ne,
BY THE CURTAINS OF YOUR EYELASHES,


tum saa.ns le rahee ho,
THE BREATH THAT YOU ARE TAKING IN,


jis dil kee dha.Dkano.n me.n,
FROM WHOSE HEARTBEATS,


itnee qareeb hokar,
DESPITE BEING SO NEAR…


itnee qareeb hokar,
DESPITE BEING SO NEAR


phir kyoo.n judaa judaa ho,
THEN WHY ARE YOU SO FAR APART?


jitnee haseen ho tum….
SO MUCH BEAUTIFUL AS YOU’RE…



mujh ko siwaa tumhaare,
BUT FOR YOU


kuchh bhee pataa nahee.n hai,
I KNOW NOTHING!


dunyaa me.n hai toh kyaa hai,
WHAT’S THERE IN THE WORLD, IF THERE IS,


dunyaa me.n kyaa nahee.n hai,
WHAT’S NOT IN THE WORLD,


tum phir bhee bad-gumaa.n ho,
EVEN THEN YOU’RE SUSPICIOUS,


tum phir bhee bad-gumaa.n ho,
EVEN THEN YOU’RE SUSPICIOUS,


naraaz ho khafaa ho,
ANGRY AND DISPLEASED,


jitnee haseen ho tum….
SO MUCH BEAUTIFUL AS YOU ARE…



iss bewafaa se hamne, saaze wafaa na payee
FROM THIS FAITHLESS, WE RECEIVED NO ORGAN OF LOYALTY,


apne liye tumhaaree, koyee adaa naa payee,
FOR ME, I FOUND NO AMOROUS SIGN FROM YOU,


lagtaa hai yoo. n ke mujhse…
IT APPEARS THAT WITH ME…


lagtaa hai yoo.n ke mujhse, rooTha mera Khuda ho,
IT APPEARS THAT WITH ME MY GOD IS DISPLEASED,


jitnee haseen ho tum, utnee hee bewafaa ho,
SO MUCH BEAUTIFUL AS YOU’RE,  AS MUCH FAITHLESS ARE YOU!


phir bhee mere liye tum,
EVEN SO, FOR ME YOU ARE….


phir bhee mere liye tum, mai.n kyaa bataaoo.n kyaa ho,
EVEN SO FOR ME, HOW SHOULD I REVEAL WHAT YOU ARE!


jitnee haseen ho tum, utnee hee bewafaa ho,
SO MUCH BEAUTIFUL AS YOU’RE, AS MUCH FAITHLESS ARE YOU!


jitnee haseen ho tum, utnee hee bewafaa ho,
SO MUCH BEAUTIFUL AS YOU’RE, AS MUCH FAITHLESS ARE YOU!


hmmm, lalalalala.


NASIR


You look like an angel
Walk like an angel
Talk like an angel
But I got wise
You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
The devil in disguise
 - A number by Elvis.

  2. I appreciate your comment, sir, but please be rest assured that when Rafi Sahaab sings, the conclusions are foregone: The songs are bound to be nice.

    By the way, the song is available on the UTube. My job is to transliterate and translate and when I'm done then, maybe, Insha Allah, I would think of including the songs too.

    In the meantime, my thanks to you are in order.

    Have a nice day Anonymous!
