Nagin (Hindi: नागिन) is a 1954 Indian Hindi-language romantic drama film, directed by Nandlal Jaswantlal, and written by Hameed Butt and Bijon Bhattacharya. It stars Vyjayanthimala and Pradeep Kumar, and has a hit musical score by Hemant Kumar. This film was partly produced in Technicolor.


Two Adivasi tribes are in conflict for the local economic rights. The daughter of the Nagi tribe's chief, Mala (Vyjayanthimala), vows to kill the son of the Ragi tribe's chief, Sanatan (Pradeep Kumar), as revenge. Trespassing in the enemy territory, she is mesmerized by the music of a flute (played by the musician Kalyanji Virji Shah). Coming closer, she finds out that the player is Sanatan. They fall in love, but find it difficult to appease the enmity between the two tribes and to resist the attempts of the villain Prabir (Jeevan) to marry Mala.


The film's soundtrack was composed by Hemanta Mukherjee. It included thirteen tracks, including the hit "Man Dole Mera Tan Dole", whose "Been Music" was performed by Kalyanji on clavioline and by Ravi on harmonium, who once worked under Hemanta Mukherjee's direction and later became independent music directors.[2] It was released under E.P. and L.P. gramophone records by The Gramophone Company of India, now known as Saregama. The lyrics were written by Rajinder Krishan.
