Lyrics

chandaa khele aankh-michauli
chandaa khele aankh-michauli
badli se nadi kinaare
badli se nadi kinaare
dulhan khele phaagun holi
dulhan khele phaagun holi
piyaa karo na ham se thathholi
piyaa karo na ham se thathholi
ho o o o o
chandaa khele aankh-michauli
chandaa khele aankh-michauli

rang roop se bhar kar jhole
bhar kar jhole
sajni yoon saajan se bole
sajni yoon saajan se bole
dekh piyaa dekh piyaa
dekh piyaa dekh piyaa
o o o o
chandaa khele aankh-michauli
chandaa khele aankh-michauli
badli se nadi kinaare
badli se nadi kinaare

naach uthhin taaron ki toli
naach uthhin taaron ki toli
roothh ke chal di badli bholi
roothh ke chal di badli bholi
dekh piyaa dekh piyaa
dekh piyaa dekh piyaa
o o o o
chandaa khele aankh-michauli
chandaa khele aankh-michauli
badli se nadi kinaare
badli se nadi kinaare
o o o o o

JOGAN(1950) a Ranjit movietone film was a big hit in those days.There was a strange thing about this movie,that in the credit list of the movie they used to show a big Question Mark instead of any name.For many years,this was a mystery and no one knew the answer,till one day,before his death in 1999,Kidar Sharma revealed the story behind the STORY of Jogan,thus-
” The man who wrote the story declined to take the credit,at the last minute.He was the great CHANDULAL SHAH himself.
He saw one English movie,in which the Hero falls in love with a Nun and tries to get her out of celibacy.He wanted to make its Hindi version.he called 2 of the time’s best directors,Nitin Bose and Mahesh Kaul and told them the ‘one line story’-disturbing the sanyas of a Jogan.
Both of them laughed loudly and said no film can be made on this.That precise time I entered the room and heard this.Bose and Kaul left and the servant brought a Paan for Chandulal.I asked him “Main Beeda uthaun ?” meaning,may I take the challenge ?
Chandulal said,”Remember,my financial condition is so bad that I have only one month’s ration at home.If you fail Ranjit will be destroyed.”
I accepted the challenge.I made this movie in just 29 days,working Day and Night.I wanted to prove to Bose and Kaul that I was not a fool.They had said(after hearing my challenge) that ‘fools rush where Angels fear to tread’
The film was a Hit. ”
The story of Jogan was Vijay(Dilip Kumar) falls in love with Surabhi(Nargis),a Jogan who sings in a temple every day.When he follws her daily,she tries to dissuade him ,but he wont listen to it.She has become a Jogan after her marriage is fixed with an old man and she tries to commit suicide,is saved by Maha Maa(Pratima devi) and made a Jogan.Finally,she disappears and after few years Vijay gets a letter from her that she loved him,but has committed suicide.

please read the 3rd line as”show a big question mark instead of any name of the “story writer”.”
