Mere man ke gagan mein aaj chhitki chaandni

Posted on: October 21, 2011


“Darogaa Jee” (1949) was a movie produced by Nargis’ home production called Nargis Art. It was directed by Akhtar Hussain. The movie had actors like Jairaj, Nargis, Mishra (?),Neelam, Nissar, Rajrani etc in it.

I have discussed two songs from this movie in the past. Here is another song from “Daroga Jee” (1949). it is sung by Geeta Dutt (then Roy) and picturised on a very young looking Nargis. Manohar Lal Khanna is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

I notice that several songs of this movie are available on YT, but details about this movie are missing and whatever little details are available are misleading. i request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie.

I am not able to get a few lines/words of this soing correctly. So I request readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ gaps in the lyrics.

Lyrics

Mere man ke gagan mein
aaj chhitki chaandni
mere man ke gagan mein
aaj chhitki chaandni
taaron ??
???
meri kahaani
baaje hain sunahre taraane
goonje har su
meri hansi
meri hansi
mere man ke gagan mein
aaj chhitki chaandni
mere man ke gagan mein
aaj chhitki chaandni

aaj khushi mein naachte taare
naachte taare
ho o o o
ho o o o
aaj khushi mein naachte taaron
naachte taare
??? hai sangeet ke dhaare
??? hai sangeet ke dhaare
rangeen hai aaj rangeen zamaana
rangeen hai aaj rangeen zamaana
karwat badalti hai duniya
mere man ke gagan mein
aaj chhitki chaandni
mere man ke gagan mein
aaj chhitki chaandni

nainon se nainwa
unke nainon se nainwa milaay aayi re
unke nainon se nainwa milaay aayi re
ik chhoti si duniyaa
ik chhoti si duniyaa basaa laayi re
ik chhoti si duniyaa basaa laayi re
hoga koi mera
main kisi ki ho gayi
mere man ke gagan mein
aaj chhitki chaandni
mere man ke gagan mein
aaj chhitki chaandni

DAROGAJI(1949),a Nargis art concern film was directed by Akhtar Hussain,brother of Jaddanbai and Mama of Nargis.In this production house 2 artists were fixed.One ofcourse was the Heroine Nargis,but the other was an actress called NEELAM,who was a close friend of Jaddanbai and always featured in their films.In one earlier posting I have mentioned that this Neelam is NOT Neelam Kothari,but a senior artist from the silent films era.Still many internet sites,including wellknown ones write her name as Neelam Kothari,who was born in the 60s.
The music director was Bulo C Rani,but the Booklet of this film indicates the name of composer as Bhola(shreshtha).On the records,name of Bulo C Rani appears.The fact was that in this film Bhola Shreshtha was Bulo C Rani’s assistant,but anadvertantly,his name was printed in the official booklet.
In this film one striking feature was,out of 12 songs,11 were solos of Geeta Roy.One song was sung by an unknown singer.While 10 songs were written by Manoharlal Khanna(Composer Usha Khanna’s father),one song was written by Khawar Zama.
