Ye raat bheegi bheegi ye mast fizaayen

Posted on: January 2, 2009


This “Chori Chori” sung is an ultimate “Chaayageet” song, full with words like “raat”, “chaand”, “fizaa” etc. And this is a movie of Raj Kapoor-Nargis era too.

Manna Dey and Lata sing this song. The lyrics by Hasrat Jaipuri are eloquence personified, and Shankar Jaikishan’s music creates just the right kind of ambience.

Song

ye raat bheegi-bheegi
ye mast fizaayen
uthhaa dheere-dheere
wo chaand pyaaraa-pyaaraa
ye raat bheegi-bheegi
ye mast fizaayen
uthhaa dheere-dheere
wo chaand pyaaraa-pyaaraa
aaa aaa
kyun aag si lagaa ke
gumsum hai chaandni
sone bhi nahin detaa
mausam kaa ye ishaaraa

ithhlaati hawaa neelam ka gagan
kaliyon pe ye behoshi ki nami
aise mein bhi kyun bechain hai dil
jeewan mein na jaane kyaa hai kami
kyun aag si lagaa ke
gumsum hai chaandni
sone bhi nahin detaa
mausam kaa ye ishaaraa

ye raat bheegi-bheegi
ye mast fizaayen
uthhaa dheere-dheere
wo chaand pyaaraa-pyaaraa

jo din ke ujaale mein na milaa
dil dhoondhhe aise sapne ko
is raat ki jagmag mein doobi
main dhoondh rahi hoon apne ko

ye raat bheegi-bheegi
ye mast fizaayen
uthaa dheere-dheere
wo chaand pyaaraa-pyaaraa
kyun aag si lagaa ke
gumsum hai chaandni
sone bhi nahin detaa
mausam kaa ye ishaaraa

aise mein kahin kyaa koyi nahin
bhoole se jo hamko yaad kare
ik halki si muskaan se jo
sapnon kaa jahaan aabaad kare

ye raat bheegi-bheegi
ye mast fizaayen
uthhaa dheere-dheere
wo chaand pyaaraa-pyaaraa
kyun aag si lagaa ke
gumsum hai chaandni
sone bhi nahin detaa
mausam kaa ye ishaaraa

ye raat bheegi-bheegi
ye mast fizaayen
uthaa dheere-dheere
wo chaand pyaaraa-pyaaraa

Superb.
Brings back memories – this was the one movie I bunked college to see in a matinee show (well, I was in a group and they prevailed upon me. 😉 ).

With songs like this one, “aaja sanam”, “jahan main jaati hoon”, I never regretted it.

From what I have read, Manna Dey got a chance in Chori Chori due to Mukesh’s non-availability. Mukesh was busy trying to become a hero at that time and so S-J took Manna Dey for songs of this movie.

And I must say Manna Dey has done a superb job in this film.

I read somewhere that the producer arrived unexpectedly during the recording of the song, and he was upset to see that it was being sung by Manna Dey, instead of Mukesh. He wanted Manna Dey to be taken off, but Raj Kapoor came in and convinced him that Manna Dey was a great singer and only then did he agree to let Manna Dey continue with the recording. I feel so sorry for Manna Dey and the humiliation he must have experienced at the time. The song became a hit as we all know.

This song, along with the other two, “Pyar hua ikrar hua …” and “Aaja sanam …” could be in a separate category altogether – Greatest duets of all time!

The “producer” coming and making a scene makes sense, when you consider that this is basically a South Indian film, made in Hindi. AVM’s Vasan (if that’s the one) may not have heard (much) of Manna Dey, and probably was mad at not seeing Mukhesh.

The lady who plays Bhagawan’s wife is Rajasulochana, a popular Telugu/Tamil actress/dancer. The movie has a lot of South Indian touches, including a purely gratuitous Bharata Natyam dance, with Vasantha Kumari singing.

a melodious song undoubtedly 🙂
