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

O raat ke musaafir

Posted on: December 30, 2008


I have watched the movie “Miss Mary” and I loved the movie. In fact, I liked its songs as well. The situation under which ths song is sung is quite a romantic situation. Gemini Ganeshan and Meena Kumari are posing as a married couple for the sake of their job,and their employer,Raybahadur feels that they are not spending enough time together as befits a married couple, so locks them up in their bedroom.

And as happens in Bollywood, such situations are ideal occasions for singing of romantic songs in a garden. In a garden, did I say? Yes, I did. Apparently, the Raybahadur had forgotten to lock the rear door leading to the garden.

Well, Gemini Ganeshan sings the song in the garden, and two paragraphs later, finds that Meena Kumari too joins in the singing.

The song is quite beautiful, an ideal “Chaayageet” song by my definition. It is so nice to see Meena Kumari playing a non tragic role. And Gemini Ganeshan (father of Rekha) is quite cute too.

This song was very popular during its time. In fact, this song finished 7th in Binaca geetmala finals of 1957.


Song-O raat ke musaafir (Miss Mary) (1957) Singers-Rafi, Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

o raat ke musaafir
chandaa zaraa bataa de
meraa qusoor kyaa hai,
tu faislaa sunaa de
o raat ke musaafir
chandaa zaraa bataa de
meraa qusoor kyaa hai,
tu faislaa sunaa de

hai bhool koyi dil ki
aankhon ki yaa khataa hai
kuchh bhi nahin to mujhse
phir kyun koyi khafaa hai
hai bhool koyi dil ki
aankhon ki yaa khataa hai
kuchh bhi nahin to mujhse
phir kyun koi khafaa hai
phir kyun koi khafaa hai
manzoor hai wo mujhko
jo kuchh bhi tu sazaa de
meraa qusoor kyaa hai
tu faislaa sunaa de
o raat ke musaafir
chandaa zaraa bataa de
meraa qusoor kyaa hai,
tu faislaa sunaa de

dil pe kisi ko apne
qaaboo nahin rahaa hai
ye raaz mere dil se
aankhon ne hi kahaa hai
dil pe kisi ko apne
qaaboo nahin rahaa hai
ye raaz mere dil se
aankhon ne hi kahaa hai
aankhon ne hi kahaa hai
aankhon ne jo hai dekhaa
dil kis tarah bhulaa de
meraa qusoor kyaa hai
tu faislaa sunaa de

o chaand aasmaan ke,
dam bhar zameen pe aajaa
bhoolaa huaa hai raahi,
tu raastaa dikhaa jaa
tu raastaa dikhaa jaa
bhatki huyi hai naiyaa
saahil ise dikhaa de
meraa qusoor kyaa hai
tu faislaa sunaa de
o raat ke musaafir
chandaa zaraa bataa de
meraa qusoor kyaa hai,
tu faislaa sunaa de

Beautiful song, especially when one is listening to it late at night! I agree with the chayageet tag. The other song “Brindavana ka krishna kanhaiya … ” is also very good.

Atul, I just realized that there is one more nice chayageet type of song in this movie (from my cassette, of course!). It is the song Sakhiri sun bole papiha us paar …, sung by Asha and someone. It is a semi-classical song and just beautiful to listen to, esp at night! I hope you can find this song.

It actually seems funny to see Gemini Ganesan in a Hindi movie :). Nice song.
