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

Tu mera chaand main teri chaandni

Posted on: April 23, 2009


When I listened to “Purani filmon ke geet” programme on Radio Ceylon in my younger days, this song “tu mera chand main teri chandni” used to get played so very often in that programme. If they had a popularity contest among all those old songs then this song would have won hands down in popularity, it seems to me.

I ofcourse scoffed at all these old songs.

Now, some four decades later, I find myself looking at all these old songs with interest and respect. And when I stumbled upon this song yesterday, it was like meeting up with an elderly acquiantance after four decades.

It is only now that I have got the details of this song. Earlier I was not even sure who the singers were. This song is from “Dillagi” (1949) and in fact the word “Dillagi” appears in the song and so this song could even be regarded as the title song ( or at least the theme song) of the movie.

Suraiyya and Shyam are the singers in this song. Suraiyya in fact is acts too in this song. I am not sure who the male actor is, though. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist and Naushad is the music director.

And this is not the only popular song from this movie. There are more well known songs in this movie which I will post in coming days.

PS-Now I have come to know that this song has another version too. Yes, this song has a Shyam-Geeta Dutt version too, and an extremely young Shyama lip syncs in Geeta Dutt’s voice. Geeta Dutt version was there only in the movie soundtrack and this song was apparently not released on records.

I am thankful to nahm for making me aware about the Geeta Dutt version of this song.

tu meraa chaand main teri chaandni
main teraa raag tu meri raagini
tu meraa chaand main teri chaandni
main teraa raag tu meri raagini
ho o o,
nahin dil ka lagaanaa koyi dillagi,
koyi dillagi
nahin dil ka lagaanaa koyi dillagi,
koyi dillagi

saath hi jeenaa
saath hi marnaa
ulfat ki hai reet, haan,
ulfat ki hai reet
saath hi jeenaa
saath hi marnaa
ulfat ki hai reet, haan,
ulfat ki hai reet
pyaar ki murli hardam gaaye
teri lagan ke geet
pyaar ki murli hardam gaaye
teri lagan ke geet
main teraa raag tu meri raagini

tu meraa chaand main teri chaandni
ho o o o
nahin dil ka lagaanaa koyi dillagi,
koyi dillagi

bhool na jaanaa rut ye suhaani
ye din aur ye raat, haan,
ye din aur ye raat
bhool na jaanaa rut ye suhaani
ye din aur ye raat, haan,
ye din aur ye raat

jab tak chamke chaand sitaare,
dekho chhoote na saath
jab tak chamke chaand sitaare,
dekho chhoote na saath
tu meraa chaand main teri chaandni
main teraa raag tu meri raagini
ho o o o,
nahin dil ka lagaanaa koyi dillagi,
koyi dillagi

arre pyara sa gana to hai ye, ek contest me mdd bhi kr gaya meri ,

The actor is Shyam.

I’m a fan of old songs. This song is one of my most favourite song and I listen everyday before sleeping. I identified the female voice as suraiya but didn’t know the male voice, so searching the internet to know the great voice. Want to know more about shyaam.

The singer & actor Shyam is with Suraiya in this clip from Film Dillagi.Actor & singer Shyam died from a riding accident shooting a film named I think Shabistaan.

[…] I have discussed three songs from “Dillagi” (1949) in the past which included timeless classics like Murli waale murli bajaa and Tu mera chand main teri chaandni. […]

[…] (1949) was a movie with some delightful songs in it.Who can forget songs like Tu mera chand main teri chaandni and Murli waale murli bajaa. These songs are timeless […]

This song was also sung by Geeta Roy for actress Shyama :

Here is a video of full song by Shyam (?) and Geeta Dutt:

Yes Nahmji. It’s Shyam only. Thanks for posting this Geeta Dutt’s version. Both versions have their owm “Karishma”.
