Aaja sanam madhur chaandni mein hum

Posted on: October 15, 2008


It is one of the iconic songs in Bollywood history, one that I have listened to many a times since childhood. That was in 1970s, and now we are in 2008, and this song was from circa 1950s! has this song aged, or has it become less known after all these decades ? No chance. this song continues to be just a popular as any venerable 52 year old song can expect to be. And this song is in good sprightly health too, one that is unlikely to become forgotten with passage of time. It is a timeless classic, there is no doubt about that.

And I have just talked about the audio, without touching about the picturisation. When I find out about the picturisation, it turns out that the song was picturised on the immortal screen pair of Raj Kapoor and Nargis. Like most songs picturised on the two, this song too has passed into the hall of fame of Bollywood legend.

Just about everything that has to do with this song is stuff of legends in fact. So here is this dream stuff from the stable of a legendary seller of Bollywood dreams. Enjoy !

Song- Aaja sanam madhur chaandni me hum ( Chori Chori) (1956) Singers- Lata, Manna Dey, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri , MD- Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

aa jaa sanam madhur chaandni mein ham
tum milen to veeraane mein bhi aa jaayegi bahaar
jhoommne lagegaa aasamaan
jhoomne lagegaa aasamaan

kahtaa hai dil aur machaltaa hai dil
more saajan le chal mujhe taaron ke paar
lagtaa nahin hai dil yahaan
lagtaa nahin hai dil yahaan

bheegi-bheegi raat mein, dil ka daaman thaam le
khoyi-khoyi zindagi hardam teraa naam le

chaand ki bahki nazar, kah rahi hai pyaar kar
zindagi hai ik safar, kaun jaane kal kidhar
chaand ki bahki nazar, kah rahi hai pyaar kar
zindagi hai ik safar, kaun jaane kal kidhar
aa jaa sanam madhur chaandni mein ham
tum mile to veeraane mein bhi aa jaayegi bahaar
jhoomne lagegaa aasmaan
jhoomne lagegaa aasmaan
kahtaa hai dil aur machaltaa hai dil
more saajan le chal mujhe taaron ke paar
lagtaa nahin hai dil yahaan
lagtaa nahin hai dil yahaan

dil ye chaahe aaj to, baadal ban ud jaaun main
dulhan jaisaa aasmaan, dharti par le aaun main

chaand kaa dolaa saje, dhoom taaron mein mache
jhoom ke duniyaa kahe, pyaar mein do dil mile
chaand kaa dolaa saje, dhoom taaron mein mache
jhoom ke duniyaa kahe, pyaar mein do dil mile
aa jaa sanam madhur chaandni mein ham
tum milen to veeraane mein bhi aa jaayegi bahaar
jhoomne lagegaa aasmaan
jhoomne lagegaa aasmaan

kahtaa hai dil aur machaltaa hai dil
more saajan le chal mujhe taaron ke paar
lagtaa nahin hai dil yahaan
lagtaa nahin hai dil yahaan

wah wah….after a long time, I am coming to this blog…and what a fantastic song to see first…this song brings back memories…Chori Chori was the only movie that I bunked in college to see….conscientious student that I was, I would never have bunked class for a movie but what to do..the whole class bunked so I just joined in…it was a matinee show running in a nearby theatre…and we said “chalo, let’s go for it”. Never regretted it…thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the songs.
