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.

As for this series, the response has been good, as Atul ji said in his introductory post during ‘ten thousand songs celebration’, this series too is well appreciated. “Mission accomplished “ many times as Peeviesie”s Mom said in a comment recently.

I have fallen into a habit of starting new sentences with ‘And’. I have learnt recently that it is as ‘ elementary English grammer ‘ that sentences never begin with ‘And’. I learnt English grammer in my urdu medium school and was never very good at it. But what to do if I have not said all I wish to say in a particular vein and the sentence is over in my ‘toota phoota’ grammer. So instead of starting sentences with ‘moreover’ ‘however’ and ‘whatever’ I have made good use of the word ‘And’. I think Atul ji was earlier correcting that and changing the sentence formation, but he must have got fed up as this happened with regularity.

Chalo koyi baat nahin , since the whole world is pronouncing elementary hindi/urdu words like ‘phool’ as ‘fool’ and ‘phir’ as ‘fir’(to give glaring examples) main ne bhi kuchh grammer ki taang tod di. The excuse that hindi script has one alphabet for both the sound of ‘ph’ and ‘f’ is a lame one.

Some of the older songs in my list and also those suggested /gifted by others are remaining to be posted.

Song no. 14 is a lovely solo by Shamshad Begum, being one of those singers belonging to the old school with nothing to find fault with in her rustic renditions. Zia Sarhadi is the lyricist and it is composed by Govind Ram.

A quintessential ‘Chaandni raaten’ song, if ever there was one.


Song-Chaandni raat hai kaisi suhaani (Dil ki Duniya)(1949)Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Zia Sarhadi, MD-Pt Govind Ram

Lyrics

Chaandni raat hai kaisi suhaani
haay re chandaa teri utthti jawaani
hoy
chaandni raat hai kaisi suhaani
haay re chandaa teri utthti jawaani

dil beqaraar mera chain na paaye
sapnon ka raaja mere paas na aaye
dil beqaraar mera chain na paaye
sapnon ka raaja mere paas na aaye
aa jaa sunaaun tohe
aa jaa sunaaun tohe
dil ki kahaani
haay re chandaa teri utthti jawaani
chaandni raat hai kaisi suhaani
haay re chandaa teri utthti jawaani

gori gori baiyyan mori
gori gori baiyyan mori
gori gori baiyyan mori
baali re umariya
raaja ne chheen leeni
man ki nagariyaa
raaja ne chheen leeni
man ki nagariyaa
apni manwaa lee meri
ek na maani
apni manwaa lee meri
ek na maani
haay re chandaa teri utthti jawaani
chaandni raat hai kaisi suhaani
haay re chandaa teri utthti jawaani
chaandni raat hai kaisi suhaani
haay re chandaa teri utthti jawaani

Chaandni raaten – Song no. 13
———————————

So we reach no. 13. This unlucky no. is lucky in this case because I thought of looking for this song which I had forgotten. It was a much liked song in its time. And it fits the theme of ‘chaandni raaten’ like a glove.

Chaandni raaten – Song no. 12
————————————–

chaand ek bewaa ki choodi ki tarah toota huaa
har sitaara besahaaraa soch mein dooba huaa
gham ke baadal ek janaaze ki tarah thehre huye
hichkiyon ke saaz par kehtaa hai dil rotaa huaa

Thus began a classic Talat Mahmood song ‘koyi nahin mera iss duniya mein’ from the movie ‘Daag’.

Kitni raahat hai dil toot jaane ke baad
zindagi se mile maut aane ke baad

Aah! the bliss of being free of illusions. As if someone has removed the coloured glasses from my eyes through which the world used to look colourful. The feeling is not always pleasant but it is a honest and truer state to be in. Keeping one's eyes closed so that one is able to avoid the unpleasant things and pretend that all is well, is a self defeating attitude. Once the truth is out in the open and accepted than it is something one faces and deals with in our own way. Out of the clouds of delusions. Only then the correct runway can be found and safe landing in possible.

Let me start this post with the stats making good use of the freshly added statistics on the stats page. Madan Mohan has composed total 684 songs. Out of these 413 songs are posted in the blog. Talat Mehmood has 314 out of 450 songs sung by him in his career. This is also to acknowledge and appreciate the great work being done by fellow contributors(Not naming anyone here in case I miss some names) for the improvements, thus enhancing the data available in the blog.

Chaandni Raaten – Song No. 10
——————————-

‘Chaandni Raaten’ as a theme is much broader than the ‘Nainon se naina milaa ke’ theme. If I am looking for one songs on youtube, it is giving at least two other songs having the same sort of mukhda or similar words. Some of the popular one are usually posted, but still more songs are founds which are not posted. I am trying to give some order to these posts. And keeping some songs for special occasions also.

Chaandni Raaten – Song No. 9
——————————-

This song is simply my most favourite ‘chaand’ song of the 21st century. The last two decades had a few such music scores in Hindi films, ‘ Khaamoshi ‘ and ‘Parineeta’ are among them which made the decades bearable musically. Favourite ‘chaand’ song from the 90’s is here. Melody in film songs was still trying to keep its head above the general cacophony which passed for music and entertainment.

Chaandni Raaten – Song No. 8
——————————–
The movie “Doosri Shadi” (1947) has eleven songs in it, with music composer Pandit Govindram and lyricist Ishwar Chand Kapoor. The honour of singers are shared between Zohrabai Ambalewali and Shamshad Begum, with a few songs by Rajkumari. From the page on myswar.com this appears to be a female dominated music score with few songs for male singers. There is one name of ‘Ram Kamlani ‘ as singer in a couple of duets with Shamshad Begum. And for two songs singers name are absent. These two songs from this movie are posted in the blog.

Song Singer
Toota hua dil gaayega kya geet suhaana Zohrabai Ambalewali
Dekho ji aayi suhaani raat Rajkumari
