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

Aaj ki raat nayaa chaand leke aayi hai

Posted on: June 24, 2010


It is one of those songs that everyone likes, but few people know the details of the song, apart from the obvious fact about the name of the singer.

Like everyone else, I too was only aware that this song is sung by Lata. This song “aaj ki raat nayaa chaand leke aayi hai” a feel good song that always has the effect of cheering the listeners and this song is doing that for nearly half a century.

This song is from a less known movie called “Shaadi” (1962). This song is written by Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by Chitragupta. Both were masters of their trades and it shows in the song. The joy that the lady feels has been expressed so wonderfully well in the lyrics and the music enhances the effect with its joyous tune.

This song is picturised on Saira Bano, with Manoj Kumar also visible.


Song-Aaj ki raat nayaa chaand leke aayi hai (Shaadi) (1962) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

aaj ki raat nayaa chaand le ke aayi hai
aaj ki raat nayaa chaand le ke aayi hai
chaandni chhaayi hai
jaane kyaa laayi hai
aankh sharmaayi hai
aaj ki raat nayaa chaand le ke aayi hai

koyi jab dekhe idhar, haay meri aankh jhuke
koyi jab dekhe idhar, haay meri aankh jhuke
chaahoon kuchh kahnaa agar
haay mera saans ruke
ruktaa hai jo saans ruke
jhukti hai jo aankh jhuke
aaj ki raat nayaa chaand le ke aayi hai
chaandni chhaayi hai
jaane kyaa laayi hai
aankh sharmaayi hai
aaj ki raat nayaa chaand le ke aayi hai

der se pyaar huaa chalo ji ho to gayaa
der se pyaar huaa chalo ji ho to gayaa
dil ko khonaa thaa jahaan chalo wahaan kho to gayaa
khone bhi do kho jo gayaa
hone bhi do ho jo gayaa

aaj ki raat nayaa chaand le ke aayi hai
chaandni chhaayi hai
jaane kyaa laayi hai
aankh sharmaayi hai
aaj ki raat nayaa chaand le ke aayi hai

pyaar kaa unpe asar kyaa Khabar hai ke nahin
pyaar kaa unpe asar kyaa Khabar hai ke nahin
jo lagi aag idhar wo udhar hai ke nahin
unko kbabar hai ke nahin
unpe asar hai ke nahin
aaj ki raat nayaa chaand le ke aayi hai
chaandni chhaayi hai
jaane kyaa laayi hai
aankh sharmaayi hai
aaj ki raat nayaa chaand le ke aayi hai

I don’t think this movie was a hit, but I always loved this song – it is so full of joy and happiness. Saira Bano also looks so young and pretty in this song, though Manoj is as expressionless as ever (sorry, Manoj fans, but I have never been able to understand his expressionless acting!). Thanks for the song, Atul!

I have seen this movie. I don’t know the box office results but movie and most of the songs were ordinary. I don’t think anyone (Dharmender, Manoj Kumar or Saira Bano etc.) made any impact as an actor (except Balraj Sahni and Om Prakash).

This song was good. And there is another song that is also good ……….. “Jaa aur kahin ro shehnai”
