Ae chaand bataa mujhko kyaa isi ka naam hai pyaar

Posted on: March 5, 2011


Using the word “Chaand” in the lyrics, if done carefully, has the effect of making the song a nice romantic song. and if the title of the movie itself is “Chaand”, and the song is picturised on a “chaandni raat” (full moon light), then the effect is incredible and it leads to the kind of songs that I describe as a “Chaayaageet” songs.

Here is one of the most wonderful “Chhaayaageet” songs that I have discovered so far. This movie itself is quite an old movie, nearly 70 years old. The song is sung by Zeenat Begam and G M Durrani. It is picturised on Begam Para and Sapru. I hope I have identified them correctly. They certainly make for a nice romantic couple expressing their love for each other in a moonlit night.

It is a superb song written by Qamar Jalalabadi and composed by Husnlal Bhagatram. Seeing how old this song is, I guess that it has to be one of the earliest songs of this genre and it is songs like this that may have led to the “Chaand” songs that followed in the decades to come.

Here is this wonderful song from “Chaand” (1944).

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm
Ae chaand bataa mujhko
ae chaand bataa mujhko
kyaa isi ka naam hai pyaar
kyaa isi ka naam hai pyaar
kis pardesi ne chhedi hai
kis pardesi ne chhedi hai
mere man ki taar
ae chaand bataa mujhko
ae chaand bataa mujhko
kyaa isi ka naam hai pyaar
dil mein meethha dard uthha
dil mein meethha dard uthha
jab aankhen huyi thhin chaar
dil mein meethha dard uthha
jab aankhen huyi thhin chaar
aaja kehti hai chal pagli
aaja kehti hai chal pagli
door door us paar
kyaa isi ka naam hai pyaar
ae chaand bataa mujhko
ae chaand bataa mujhko
kyaa isi ka naam hai pyaar

chaand ko dekhe rajkumari
chaand ko dekhe rajkumari
chaand ko dekhe chaand
chaand ko dekhe chaand
dekha usne chaand jo mera
dekha usne chaand jo mera
chaand ho gayaa maand
wo gaya bechaaraa haar
wo gaya bechaaraa haar
ae chaand bataa mujhko
ae chaand bataa mujhko
kyaa isi ka naam hai pyaar
dil soona thha chup thhin aankhen
dil soona thha chup thhin aankhen
jeena thha bekaar
dil soona thha chup thhin aankhen
jeena thha bekaar
nayaa jeewan dekar tumne
nayaa jeewan dekar tumne
badal diyaa sansaar
kyaa isi ka naam hai pyaar
ae chaand bataa hamko
ae chaand bataa hamko
kyaa isi ka naam hai pyaar

Thanks for this word. Is “maand” the same as “mand”, but used as “maand” to rhyme with “Chaand” ?

Mand or Maand it will be same in this script.

How u must be feeling? when u dive in the sea and come with a few more precious gems n jewels daily. It is a sea full of fogotten/not known (by us) gems.

I feel as if we r so rich with a sea full of jewels at our disposal, bring one or two up, enjoy for a while the feel of the song and put it back in the sea.

Why it is Maand ?
e.g. man – heart
maan – agree

maand will be dull . mand will be also dull. anyway u pronounce it.

Atul ji,

A very dear salute to you from the bottom of my heart. 🙂

Aap kahaan kahaan se ye nagme aur ye geet dhoond ke laa rahe hain. Aisa lagta hai ki ek koyle ki khadaan mein se chun chun ke heere baant rahe hain. Kya kamaal ki khoj hai.

Not for only this song, but so many others that are flowing like a melodious waterfall on this blog. And of course, what a gem of song this one is. I am hearing it for the first time, but (as Raja ji would say) it is love at first hear.

Aap ki mehnaton pe hum dil o jaan se qurbaan :).
