Tu chanda main chaandni

Posted on: January 6, 2012


“Reshma Aur Shera”(1971) is a movie which was produced and direced by Sunil Dutt. The movie had Sunil Dutt, Waheeda Rehman, Amitabh Bachchan, Jayant, Sulochana, Amrish Puri, Dulari, Sudhir, B. B. Bhalla, Guddy, Padma Khanna, Sunil Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Rakhee Gulzar, K. N. Singh etc in it.

The movie had an impressive starcast in hindsight. Amitabh Bachchan, who later on became the reigning superstar was in fact in a bit role without any dialogues and hardly resembled the superstar that he was to become in a couple of years time. Vinod Khanna was also there in the movie and he was just as charismatic in this movie as always.

The movie flopped at the box office. Many careers suffered as a result. Music director Jaidev was one of them who had composed some nice music in this movie which failed to take off in the popularity stakes. I have discussed the list of the top 16 songs in 1971 in an earlier post and it can be seen that the songs of “Reshma Aur Shera” (1971) were nowhere in contention when it came to the most popular songs of the year.

The songs on their own were nice songs to listen to. With passage of time, music lovers can appreciate these songs better, without needing to compare these songs with the other more popular songs from hit movies.

Today (6th of january) is the death anniversary of Jaidev. On this occasion, here is a song from “Reshma Aur Shera” (1971). This song is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Waheeda Rehman and Sunil Dutt. Balkavi Bairaagi is the lyricist.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by nahm.


Song-Tu chanda main chaandni (Reshma Aur Shera)(1971) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Balkavi Bairaagi, MD-Jaidev

Lyrics(Provided by nahm)

tu chandaa
main chaandani
chaandani
chaandani

tu chandaa
main chaandni
tu tarwar
main shaakh re
tu baadal
main bijuree
tu baadal
main bijuree
tu panchhi
main paakh re
tu baadal
main bijuree
tu panchhi
main paakh re

tu chandaa
main chaandni

tujhe aanchal mein rakkhoongi
o saanvre
tujhe aanchal mein rakkhoongi
o saanvre
kaali alkon se baandhoongi
ye paaon re
kaali alkon se baandhoongi
ye paaon re
galbaiyyan va daalon ke chhoote nahin
galbaiyyan va daalon ke chhoote nahin
meraa sapnaa sajan ab toote nahin
mehendi rachee hathheliyaan
mehendi rachee hathheliyaan
mere kaajar waare nain re
pal pal tujhe pukaar ke
piyaa pal pal tujhe pukaar ke
ho ho kar bechain re

bechain re
ho ho kar bechain re

chaar peher ki chaandni
chaar peher ki chaandni
mere sang bitaa
apne haathhon se piyaa
mohe laal chunar odhaa
kesariyaa dharti lage
kesariyaa dharti lage
ambar laalam laal re
ang lagaa kar saayebaa
ang lagaa kar saayebaa
kar de mujhe nihaal re
nihaal re
kar de mujhe nihaal re

This song is one of the best melody of Jaidevji’s creation. Lataji also superb in this song. Thanks Nahmji for finding another gem for the blog.

This was not posted yet? (ok, there’s now a category for this too, right? ;-)).

This is an absolutely brilliant song. In fact this movie itself is an awesome movie, if a bit dark. Maybe it did not do well at the box-office because it does not have a typical happy ending.

oh my god i simply love the way yhis song goes from level to level. wish i cud sing like that.
hats off to Lata & Jaidev.
May he RIP

There are three more songs from movie which are melodious(yet to be posted)
a)Ek miti si chhubhan:lata(Udhav kumar)
b)tauba tauba meri tauba, ek tho meri bharpoor jawaani:asha(padma khanna)(rajinder krishan)
c)jab se lagan lagaaye re umar bhar neend na aayere umar bhar:Asha bhosle (This song is I think not included in the movie, but there in the audio tracks of the movie)(Neeraj)

Last two songs are rarely available.

One more to the above list : ‘zaalim meri sharaab mein ye kyaa mila diyaa’ (, Manna Dey, Balkavi Bairagi). In this song, Sanjay Dutt is seen by the side of Sudhir who sings this qawaali in the film.

Jaidev’s compositions for Reshma Aur Shera won the Rajat Kamal in 1971.

As seen in this video below, there are more stanzas and lines. I have added them to the lyrics from above in italics. Thus the whole lyrics will be as below

tu chandaa
main chaandani
chaandani
chaandani

tu chandaa
main chaandni
tu tarwar
main shaakh re
tu baadal
main bijuree
tu baadal
main bijuree
tu panchhi
main paakh re
tu baadal
main bijuree
tu panchhi
main paakh re

tu chandaa
main chaandni

naa tarwar
naa baawri
naa koi thandi chaanv
naa koyal
naa papihara
aisaa meraa gaaon re
kahan bhuje tan ki tapan
kahan bhuje tan ki tapan
o saiyaan sirmol
chandrakiran ko chhod kar
chandrakiran ko chhod kar
jaaye kahan chakor
jaag uthi hai saanware
jaag uthi hai saanware
meri kunwaari pyaas re
angaare bhi lagne lage
angaare bhi lagne lage
aaj mujhe madhumaas re
madhumaas re
aaj mujhe madhumaas re

tujhe aanchal mein rakkhoongi
o saanvre
tujhe aanchal mein rakkhoongi
o saanvre
kaali alkon se baandhoongi
ye paaon re
kaali alkon se baandhoongi
ye paaon re
galbaiyyan va daalon ke chhoote nahin
galbaiyyan va daalon ke chhoote nahin
meraa sapnaa sajan ab toote nahin
mehendi rachee hathheliyaan
mehendi rachee hathheliyaan
mere kaajar waare nain re
pal pal tujhe pukaar ke
piyaa pal pal tujhe pukaar ke
ho ho kar bechain re

bechain re
ho ho kar bechain re

o mere
saavan sajan
aa mere sindoor
saajan sangh sajani baali
mausam sangh mayur

chaar peher ki chaandni
chaar peher ki chaandni
mere sang bitaa
apne haathhon se piyaa
mohe laal chunar odhaa
kesariyaa dharti lage
kesariyaa dharti lage
ambar laalam laal re
ang lagaa kar saayebaa
ang lagaa kar saayebaa
kar de mujhe nihaal re
nihaal re
kar de mujhe nihaal re
