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

The association of Pankaj Babu and RC Boral starts from their coming together as artists and producers at Calcutta Radio. No specific dates are available, but the expected period is the second half of the 1920s. This period also coincides with the prime of the silent films in India. Calcutta had become a main production center. Being recognized as music directors at Radio Calcutta, it was natural for RC Boral and Pankaj Mullick to be called upon for creating the orchestral music for silent films. In the days of soundless films, the music and sound effects were presented live in the theatre, using a live orchestra. What we recognize as background music today, was very much a ‘foreground’ entity in those years. The mood and the action on screen, was duly accompanied by live music that was played by the orchestra sitting just below and front of the screen. Probably no recordings of such musical works were made, else that in itself would have been a very valuable treasure for lovers of film music. wo films from 1931 are identified as the ones for which this pair had prepared the orchestral ‘foreground’ music. Produced by International Filmcraft, the title of the films are ‘Chesher Maye’ (‘चेशेर मेय’) and ‘Chorkanta’.

Today (23 september 2014) is the death anniversary of Rajinder Krishan (6 june 1919- 23 september 1987). For an artist of his calibre and stature, his is surprisingly less known among music lovers vis a vis some of his contemporary lyricists. So much so that wikipedia is not even aware of his exact date of death or even the exact year of his death. I have often said that Ravi was the creator of iconic songs that everyone hummed but few people knew the composer behind them. I think that the same can be said about Rajinder Krishan as a lyricist. Many of the well known evergreen songs of the golden era of HFM are penned by him.
