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

Stella O Stella

Posted on: June 2, 2009


“A” grade movies were not the only movies that get made in Bollywood. There are many B grade, C grade…Z grade movies which also got made. Most of these movies failed to register in the radar of mainsteam audience.

For instance, few people may have heard of this movie called “Return of Mr Superman” (1960). But those days even forgettable movies used to have nice music. And this movie had music by that legendary music director Anil Biswas.

Here is a very interesting song from this movie that goes “Stella O Stella O Stella tera Johny tha ab tak akela”. This song is wriitten by Manmohan Sabir and it is sung by Meena Kapoor and Mahendra Kapoor. I am not sure who are the actors on which this song is picturised. Can anyone enlighten me about the actors ?

[Ed Note – PS – Now I have come to know that this song was picturised on Majnu and Naazi. That is not all. This song was originally used in “Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen” (1959) as well. There it was picturised on Shammi Kapoor and Kumkum.

It is a unique case where the same song was used in two different movies. Only one audio record (N-53141) was used and it was mentioned as the record of “Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen”(1959).

That being the case, I think that Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist of the song and not Manmohan Sabir.

Lyrics

Stella O Stella O Stella
tera Johny tha ab tak akela
Johny O Johny O Johny
ab ye dil tere dil se fansela
Stella O Stella O Stella
tera Johny tha ab tak akela
Johny O Johny O Johny
ab ye dil tere dil se fansela

Mere khwaabon me basti hai tu
hmm
main hoon mast aur masti hai tu
bin tere har minute o meri chocolate
yoon lage jaise kadwaa karela
O Johny
O Stella
bin tere har minute o meri chocolate
yoon lage jaise kadwaa karela

mujhko hanske jo takte ho tum
Romeo jaise lagte ho tum
hmm
Juliet ki qasam sachhi kahte hain ham
dil tumhaare liye hai rakhelaa
O Johny
O Stella
Juliet ki qasam sachhi kahte haoin ham
dil tumhaare liye hai rakhelaa

teri ankhen hain daaroo bhari
yehi aankhen hain tumpe mari
hmm
haath pakdo jo tum khoke masti me gum
chhod doon saare chakkar jhamelaa
O Johny
O Stella
haath pakdo jo tum khoke masti me gum
chhod doon saare chakkar jhamelaa
Stella O Stella O Stella
tera Johny thaa ab tak akela
Johny O Johny O Johny
ab ye dil tere dil se fansela
dear Johny
darling Stella
dear Johny
darling Stella

this is originally from Char Dil Char Rahen which I have seen. It was picturised on Shammi kapoor and Kumkum. It is also quoted in Youtube.

The song was picturised on Majnu and Naazi.
Nazzi had worked mostly in some stunt films.

The tune of the mukhda is somewhat similar to https://atulsongaday.me/2011/08/23/zameen-se-hamen-aasmaan-par/

Atul ji,
Both are correct.
This is one of the rare songs which belonged to one film and used again in another film and shot on different actors.
The MD of both the films was Anil Biswas and he must have used this song in superman ki Wapasi-1960.
There was,however only one record-N-53141 issued as a song of Char Dil Char Rahen-1959.
