Chaand chhupa aur taare doobey

Posted on: August 17, 2011


“Sohni Mahiwal”(1958), as the name suggests is one of the four tragic love stories of Punjab. The other such stories being Heer Ranjha,Mirza Sahiban and Sassi Punnun. Several movies have been made on these tales, not only in Hindi, but also in Punjabi and other languages.

The title roles in “Sohni Mahiwal” (1958) were played by Nimmi and Bharat Bhushan. That is perfect casting for a tragic love story, if you ask me. 😀

Here is a suitably melancholic song from this movie. This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist and music is composed by Naushad.

This song is apparently the movie ending song as well. Just after Mahendra Kumar finishes his singing, a brief Rafi-Lata duet commences and ends almost immediately, with Sohni and Mahiwal shown walking purposefully towards a river holding hands, where, as the legend tells us, they got drowned. This Rafi Lata duet could well be treated as a separate song, but here I have considered it as an extension of the Mahendra Kapoor song

Song-Chaand chhupa aur taare doobe (Sohni Mahiwal) (1958) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

chaand chhupaa aur taare doobe
raat ghazab ki aayi
husn chalaa hai ishq se milne
zulm ki badli chhaayi
ho raat ghazab ki aayi
chaand chhupaa aur taare doobe
raat ghazab ki aayi
husn chalaa hai ishq se milne
zulm ki badli chhaayi
ho raat ghazab ki aayi

toot padi hai aandhi gham ki,
ho ho
ho ho ho ho
toot padi hai aandhi gham ki,
aaj pawan hai paagal
aaj pawan hai paagal
kaanp rahi hai dharti saari,
cheekh rahe hain baadal
ho ho ho ho
cheekh rahe hain baadal
duniyaa ke toofaan hazaaron,
husn ki ik tanhaayi
husn chalaa hai ishq se milne
zulm ki badli chhaayi
ho raat ghazab ki aayi

maut ki naagan aaj khadi hai
raah mein phan phailaaye
jungle-jungle naach rahe hain
shaitaanon ke saaye
ho ho ho ho
shaitaanon ke saaye
aaj Khudaa khaamosh hai jaise
bhool gayaa ho Khudaayi
husn chalaa hai ishq se milne
zulm ki badli chhaayi
ho raat ghazab ki aayi

ghor andheraa mushqil raahen,
qadam-qadam pe dhokhe
he he
ghor andheraa mushqil raahen,
qadam-qadam pe dhokhe
aaj mohabbat ruk na sakegi,
chaahe Khudaa bhi roke
ho ho ho ho
chaahe Khudaa bhi roke
raah-e-wafaa mein peechhe hatnaa,
pyaar ki hai ruswaayi
husn chalaa hai ishq se milne
zulm ki badli chhaayi
ho raat ghazab ki aayi

paar nadi ke yaar kaa deraa,
ho ho ho ho ho
paar nadi ke yaar kaa deraa,
aaj milan hai teraa
aaj milan hai teraa
odh le tu lehron ki chunri
baandh le mauj kaa sehraa
ho ho ho ho
baandh le mauj kaa sehraa
dole mein manjhdhaar ke hogi
teri aaj vidaayi
husn chalaa hai ishq se milne
zulm ki badli chhaayi
ho raat ghazab ki aayi

doob ke in oonchi lehron mein
naiyyaa paar lagaa le
ulfat ke toofaan mein zindaa
rahte hain marne waale
ho ho ho ho
rahte hain marne waale
jeete-jee sansaar mein kisne
pyaar ki manzil paayi
husn chalaa hai ishq se milne
zulm ki badli chhaayi
ho ho ho
ho raat ghazab ki aayi

tere dil ke khoon se hogaa
laal Chenaab kaa paani
duniyaa ki taareekh mein
likhi jaayegi ye qurbaani
Sohni aur Mahiwaal ne apai
ishq mein jaan ganwaayi
ishq mein jaan ganwaayi

ho ho ho ho ho ho
hamaare pyaar ke kisse sunaaye jaayenge
yeh geet saare zamaane mein gaaye jaayenge
ham na honge fasaana hogaa
ham na honge fasaana hogaa
aane waale ko aanaa hogaa,
jaane waale ko jaanaa hogaa

Oh, I absolutely love this song, which I have been hearing from my childhood days, but never saw the video until today. I had guessed that they were both dead at the point when he sings, “sohni aur mahiwal ne apni ishq mein jaan ganwaayi …”, but this is beautifully filmed, with the river raging in its fury, and the tragic lovers being swept away by its waters. And yes, Nimmi and BB are the perfect pair for a tragedy – did either of them ever have a funny/happy movie?

Thanks for this wonderful song, Atul!

This song was a long pending farmaish from you.

I have commented on the fact of Nimmi playing tragic roles all the time and I was accused of being anti woman for one such comment. I am happy that you too feel the same way about Nimmi’s roles. 😀

Lalitha ji / Atul ji,

In her entire career,Nimmi acted only in ONE comedy movie,that too in the fag end of her career.
Roop and Rang Chitra production DAAL MEIN KAALA (1964),directed by Satyen Bose (s/play also),the film cast was-
Kishore Kumar,Nimmi,Agha,Omprakash,Tun Tun,Maruti,Shammi,Bipin Gupta,Sajjan,Abhi Bhattacharya etc. The Music director was C.Ramchandra
The story was a comedy of errors.
Raibahaddur gets a letter that Dr.Prof. Roy is arriving from London for a seminar.By the same train (a train from London ? ) two unemployed youths Raju and Raja,as well as an actor Natwar Shyam are travelling,all in First class.
Raibahaddur mistakenly takes Raju as the Prof,The actual professor is received by people for actor Shyam and the actual actor,who is in a drunken state does not get down at all.
The entire story is full of this misunderstanding and Nimmi,playing daughter of Raibahaddur falls in love with Raju(Kishore kumar).
This last minute effort of Nimmi did not help her in removing the tag of Weeping Doll of Hindi films.
As far as Bharat Bhooshan is concerned,I think,the producer mandali knew his limitations of acting and no one ever offered him a comedy role.Some people are born with face suitable for tragic and serious roles only.

This is not Mahendra Kapoor debut song. He recorded his first song for V. Bulsara (as MD) film – Madmast (1953).
