Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Ye chaand sa roshan chehra

Posted on: December 1, 2008


Shammi Kapoor on the screen, Rafi as the playback singer, O P Nayyar as the music director. This deadly composition came together for “Kashmir ki kali” and the result was an all time great musical extravaganza.

Unlike most other movies, the main characters involved in creating the songs of this movie actually discussed about the song and finalised it after lots of discussions. O P Nayyar created as many as 52 tunes for this movie and the best 9 tunes were selected by Shakti Samanta (producer), O P Nayyar, S H Bihari (lyricist) Rafi and Shammi Kapoor for the movie.

Rafi and Shammi Kapoor, in consultation with O P Nayyar also decided that the word “taareef” in the sentence “taareef karoon main uski” would be sung differently every time this word appeared in the song, and that Shammi Kapoor would enact them differently too. So much of fine tuning and meticulous planning had gone in creating this song and picturising it.

The song, as is obvious from the title of the movie, was picturised in Kashmir, on the pictureque Dal lake aboard a boat called Shikaara in local parlance. All the people involved in the creating of the song, be it Shammi Kapoor, Rafi, O P Nayyar, or S H Bihari, they all let their hair down and came up with a masterpiece. What a song !

Sharmila Tagore made her Bollywood debut with this movie. Shammi Kapoor, unlike other heroes, had no reservations working with debutant ladies. It was Shammi Kapoor whose name sold the film, in any case.With this movie, Shammi Kapoor reached the zenith of his career.

Song- Ye chaand sa roshan chehra (Kashmir ki Kali 1964) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics- S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

ye chaand saa roshan chehraa, zulfon kaa rang sunahraa
ye jheel si neeli aankhen, koyi raaz hai inmen gahraa
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa
ye chaand saa roshan chehraa, zulfon kaa rang sunahraa
ye jheel si neeli aankhen, koyi raaz hai inmen gahraa
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa

ik cheez qayaamat bhi hai, logon se sunaa karte the
tumhe dekhke maine maanaa, wo theek kahaa karte the
wo theek kahaa karte the
hai chaal mein teri zaalim, kuchh aisi balaa kaa jaadoo
sau baar sambhaalaa dil ko, par hoke rahaa bekaaboo
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa
ye chaand saa roshan chehraa, zulfon kaa rang sunahraa
ye jheel si neeli aankhen, koyi raaz hai inmen gahraa
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa …

har subah kiran ki laali, hai rang tere gaalon kaa
har shaam ki chaadar kaali, saayaa hai tere baalon kaa
har subah kiran ki laali, hai rang tere gaalon kaa
har shaam ki chaadar kaali, saayaa hai tere baalon kaa
saayaa hai tere baalon kaa
tu balkhaati ik nadiyaa, har mauj teri angdaayi
jo in maujon mein doobaa, usne hi duniyaa paayi
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa
ye chaand saa roshan chehraa, zulfon kaa rang sunahraa
ye jheel si neeli aankhen, koyi raaz hai inmen gahraa
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa …

main khoj mein hoon manzil ki, aur manzil paas hai mere
mukhde se hataa do aanchal, ho jaayen door andhere
ho jaayen door andhere
maanaa ke ye jalwe tere, kar denge mujhe deewaanaa
ji bhar ke zaraa main dekhoon, andaaz teraa mastaanaa
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa
ye chaand saa roshan chehraa, zulfon kaa rang sunahraa
ye jheel si neeli aankhen, koyi raaz hai inmen gahraa
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa
taareef karoon kyaa uski, jisne tumhen banaayaa

One of my favorite things about Shammi is his love for music and his way of performing the songs…he paid a lot of attention to details with them.

What does “tareef” mean?

Like

“tareef” is praise. “tareef karoon main uski jisne tujhe banaaya” means “I praise the one who created you”
