There are only a handful of Bollywood numbers from movies made after mid-1960s that I really long to hear. Lest I may be misunderstood, this is a statement of personal preference by this music-illiterate, not necessarily an adverse commentary on the later years’ work.

One such post mid-1960s number is Anand Bakshi’s “Tum aaye to aaya mujhe yaad, gali mein aaj chaand nikla” from the Mahesh Bhatt written-and-directed Zakhm (1998) which has Alka Yagnik crooning at her very best in the Lata idiom under the baton of M.M. Kreem.

“Zakhm” is about a Muslim girl (played ever so superbly by Pooja Bhatt – her screen name never becomes clear in the movie). She is in love with a Hindu film producer Raman Desai (played by Nagarjuna) and married to Raman secretly because of their different faith. Their marriage remains unaccepted by Raman’s domineering mother and he is pressurized by her to marry (again) with another girl of her choice – Sonia (Sonali Bendre). While Raman still financially supports his Muslim wife, he visits her only occasionally as she struggles to raise her young son Ajay (played by Kunal Khemu), and later another son Anand (played by Akshay Anand) born just prior to his father’s death in a car crash.

Prelude to this soulful song is young Ajay cajoling his father to visit their home – which Raman finally does. As Ajay notices his father arriving in his car downstairs, he runs to put on a gramophone record which plays this number: “Tum aaye to aaya mujhe yaad, gali men aaj chaand nikla”. His mother, dishevelled doing household chores, is puzzled as Ajay gestures towards the door. She opens the door only to see the love of her life Raman walking in.

Her emotions – first surprise, then muted joy at his sight, and finally tears welling up in her eyes telling silently the tale of the pain of loneliness, social rejection and her struggles – all play on her face; each one of which Pooja Bhatt has wordlessly portrayed on her face as exquisitely as any leading lady of the cellulite before or since her. Then, she hastily withdraws to collect herself. In the meantime, Raman takes off his shoes to show to Ajay that this time it is not a fleeting visit. After gathering herself, his wife shortly reappears before her husband to welcome him coyly, again wordlessly, but her pent-up anguish vents in her tears. The couple retreats to privacy and Ajay gets out of their way as this poignantly romantic number continues to sonorously enunciate Pooja’s emotions in the background … all of which Alka Yagnik has vocalized as soulfully as Pooja Bhatt has portrayed it movingly. Alka’s emphasized enunciation of “chaand” when repeating the line “gali men aaj chaand nikala” is simply breath-taking … with that, the allegory leaves no doubt as to who is Pooja’s “chaand”!

To complete the story, her struggles only intensify after her husband’s death in the car accident, leaving her to raise her two sons – Ajay (played by Kunal Khemu as a young boy, and Ajay Devgan as his grown-up self) and Anand (played by Akshay Anand) on her own. The fact that she has children with a Hindu man forces her to hide her faith and live her life as a Hindu lady – even in front of her young son Ajay. But Ajay realises his mother is Muslim when, in the shock at her husband’s sudden death, she breaks out in Koranic verses. At that point she makes him promise to bury her according to her faith upon her death, for only through a proper burial would she be able to reunite with her lover and husband Raman in heaven.

When the grown-up Ajay’s mother dies of burns much later, he prepares to bury her in accordance with the Muslim rites as per her wishes. By this time Sonia too has learnt about her mother-in-law’s gross injustice towards Raman’s real love and first wife … and lends her support to a determined Ajay. But Ajay’s task is impeded by the fundamentalist leader Subodh Bhai (Ashutosh Rana) who is hell-bent to exploit their private tragedy as a Hindu-Muslim issue for his political end. He incites a Hindu youth mob, including Ajay’s brother Anand, a youth leader by then, to prevent Ajay from burying his mother. When Anand finally realizes Subodh Bhai’s real intentions, he stands-up for his brother to make Subodh Bahi back out. Anand then helps Ajay bury their mother as per the Muslim tradition as she had wished … and she is shown to finally reunite with Raman in heaven in the end.


Song-Tum aaye to aaya mujhe yaad gali mein aaj chaand nikla (Zakhm)(1998) Singer-Alka Yagnik, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-M M Kreem

Lyrics

Tum aaye to aaya mujhe yaad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
jaane kitne dinon ke baad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
jaane kitne dinon ke baad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
tum aaye to aaya mujhe yaad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
jaane kitne dinon ke baad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
jaane kitne dinon ke baad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
tum aaye to aaya mujhe yaad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla

ye naina bin kaajal tarsen
baarah maheene baadal barsen
suni rab ne meri fariyaad
suni rab ne meri fariyaad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
tum aaye to aaya mujhe yaad
gali mein aaj chhand chaand nikla

aaj ki raat jo main so jaati
khulti aankh subah ho jaati
main to ho jaati bas barbaad
main to ho jaati bas barbaad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
jaane kitne dinon ke baad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla

maine tumko aate dekha
apni jaan ko jaate dekha
jaane phir kya hua nahin yaad
jaane phir kya hua nahin yaad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
gali mein aaj chaand nikla
jaane kitne dinon ke baad
gali mein aaj chaand nikla

Chaandni raaten – Song No. 17
————————————–

       chandni raaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten
       sab jag soye
       ham jaagen
       taaron se karen baaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten

This song has over the years been heard here and there. I was aware this is some remix song of an old song, just like the remix of the song ‘Kitni Akeli Kitni Tanhaa Si Lagi‘ from film ‘Talaash’ (1969).   I used to think that ‘Kitni Akeli. . . ‘ song was a Kishore Kumar song and remixed.  It was many years later that I heard the original Lata Mangeshkar song composed by SD Burman.

Chaandni raaten – Song No. 16
————————————–

” Ye chand ye sitaare ye raat yaad rakhnaa” from film ” La’al-e-Yaman ” (1956) is the song no. 16 of the series. No songs from this movie are posted in the blog yet, but two songs from the 1933 movie of the same name are presented. This song is written by Kaifi Azmi and composed by AR Qureshi also known as Ustad Allah Rakkha. The recording is not really up to the mark and sounding older than the year of the film. The music is also sounding very period in this qawwali style composition.

Chaandni raaten – Song no. 15
———————————-

This is one delightful duet song which talks of ‘chanda ki goad’, ‘ taaron ki chhaaon’ ,’baadal ki oat’ saawan ki raat ‘ and ‘roothna manaana’ and so on and so forth. This is song no. 15 of chaandni raaten series. Rafi sahab is in his elements singing this teasing duet with Chaand Wirk. Chand Wirk is a new name for the blog, which is not surprising as this is her maiden film song according to myswar.com.

Chaandni raaten – song no. 14
———————————

In one of the earlier posts in this series, I mixed up two songs ‘aadha hai chandrama raat aadhi’ and ‘chal jaa re hat natkhat’. There was more than one regulars on the blog who volunteered with the correction. It is a good sign, that small talk that I make in my posts are being read at least. :-) The comments containing additional information about the movie, lyricist and words of appreciation are motivating, even if not always replied to individually.
