Na Kisi Ki Aankh Ka Noor Hoon - from "Lal Qila"

Lyrics & Chords

A wonderful nazm written by the last moghul emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar is being presented here. The song was picturized in the movie “Lal Qila” and sung mesmerizingly by Mohd. Rafi. I always feel my eyes moistened, whenever I hear this nazm.

There are several versions of this nazm sung by various singers, but I like the version sung by Mohd. Rafi in the movie the best. Haunting music is by S. N. Tripathi.

The song was previewed by the urdu masteroes, Naqvi sahab and Paras for the correctness of the words and diction. I thank them very much for the valuable inputs provided to me by both in terms of understanding and meaning of the words. I have tried to incorporate the same in my singing. Any error in diction and pronunciation here now is solely on part of my own.

Movie : Lal Qila
Music : S N Tripathi
Lyrics : Bahadurshah Zafar
Singer : Mohd. Rafi
Cover : Shailender

The song will be incomplete in absence of your valuable inputs. Please feel free to give the feedback.

I had almost forgotten about it Shailendra Bhai. Very soulfully sung by you. No doubt the best version of this nazm was sung by Rafi Sahab. I liked the bass you displayed in your voice at various places. Enjoyed your 2nd antara the most. You can try some more from Rafi Sahab in similar genre which will help you improve further in diction. Thanks for mentioning my name too.

I have to agree with your song selection…. wonderful lyrics and Rafi sahab has done such a nice job with this Gem. You have maintained the mood of the Nazm well…… and have brought out the dard very well.

Shailender bhai,

Great pick and very well executed.You brought out the feelings and the mood of the song. I felt that the music could be a little lower – will enhance your voice and its inflections.
