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

So gayi chaandni

Posted on: May 8, 2011

“Aakaash” (1953) is a forgotten movie which had Agha, Balraj Sahni, Nadira, Manmohan Krishan, Shammi (not to be confused with Shammi Kapoor), Badri Prasad, Jillo etc in it.

This movie has some songs that are as rare to find as the movie itself. The songs may be forgotten, but they are classics and they deserve to be much better known among music lovers. Here is a rare song from this movie. It is sung by Lata. Satyendra Athaiyya is the lyricist and Anil Biswas composed the music.

Only audio of this song is available, so it is not known how this song is picturised. The song itself is a superb song to listen to.

Song-So gayi chaandni (Aakaash) (1953) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Satyendra Athaiyya, MD-Anil Biswas


so gayi chaandni
jaag uthhi bekali
gham sataane lage
tum mujhe aur bhi yaad aane lage
tum mujhe aur bhi yaad

cheekh uthhi n zindagi
aankhon mein ashq bi dabdabaane lage
tum mujhe aur bhi yaad aane lage
tum mujhe aur bhi yaad

laakh umangen liye,
raat dhalne lagi
meri tanhaayi karwat badalne lagi
haaye re bekasi,
ab mere saaye bhi,
munh chhupaane lage
tum mujhe aur bhi yaad aane lage
tum mujhe aur bhi yaad

door tak mere dil ki pukaaren gayin
door tak mere dil ki pukaaren gayin
phir naa lautin,
kuchh aisi bahaaren gayin
shaam-e-gham ki qasam
ab to mere qadam,
dagmagaane lage
tum mujhe aur bhi yaad aane lage
tum mujhe aur bhi yaad
