Chaand bhi koi deewaana hai

Posted on: January 10, 2012


This article is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Remembering Mahendra Kapoor today, 9th Jan, his birth anniversary.

As I am searching for songs to post for today, I came across this simply super gem of a melody which I have heard long time back, and which has since been eluding me. This song just has to be counted amongst the best and softest duets ever. Rendered softer than silk and softer than velvet, this duet is by Asha ji and Mahendra ji. I am sure as you would hear this, the reaction is going to be, “wow, not posted yet?”.

The film is 1968 “Apna Ghar Apni Kahaani”, a social drama produced under the banner of Rachna Films, Bombay, and directed by Phani Mazumdar. The music in this film is composed by N Dutta and the lyrics are by Qamar Jalaalabaadi. The star cast of the film includes Shekhar, Bina Roy, Mumtaz, Sudhir, Bela Bose, David, Brahm Bhardwaj, Madhumati, Keshto Mukherjee, Keshav Rana, Baby Farida etc. One song from this film is already posted on this blog, i.e. “Aaj Kehti Hai Kisi Ki Zindagi Rotey Huye” . I have not been able to locate more information on this film, and I request other readers to please add more information about it.

Enjoy is wonderfully soft duet, performed by Mumtaz and Sudhir on screen – the scenario is a carefree moonlit night, and the lovers are in a boat. The on screen situation and performance is also equally endearing. The instrumental part of the music is very soft and very subdued, and it is the voices that carry the song and make the music. A real gem of a song.

chaand bhi koi deewaanaa hai
saath hai lekin begaanaa hai

This moon
Some obsessed one, he is
He accompanies us
And yet, is a stranger far, far away

ye bhi hai, hum sa hi awaaraa
raat bhar phirtaa hai maaraa maaraa
iss ka bhi gham anjaanaa hai
saath hai lekin begaanaa hai

(Seems as if)
He too, is a truant wanderer
Like us
Treading the skies, searching
All night long
His anguish too, is a mystery
The sorrow, is within
And yet, dissociated

lehar ki zindagi bhi kyaa zindagi hai
umra bhar saahil ki bandagi hai

The tales of the wave
Are just, but a worship of the shores
All life long, forever

ye bhi hai hum si pagli koi
jhoomti phirti hai khoyee khoyee
iss ko bhi saahil pe jaanaa hai
saahil to phir bhi begaanaa hai

This wave
She too, is an eccentric
Like us
She swirls and flows, as if lost. . . searching
She searches the shores
Where she has to go
And yet, the shore
He is still a stranger
(He turns her back)

husn aur ishq ki shokiyaan
jaawidaan, jaawidaan, jaawidaan

The playful naughtiness of the lover and beloved
Are eternal
Forever
Everlasting

shokhiyaan = naughtiness, mischief
jaawidaan = forever, everlasting

manzilen aankhon se hain ojhal
paaon kyaa, saanse bhi hain bojhal
kuchh bhi ho manzil pe jaanaa hai
ishq ka ye hi afsaanaa hai

The destinations are invisible to the eyes
What to say of feet
Even the breath is tired, sleepy
And yet, whatever be it
Destination has to be reached
That, simply,
Is the legend of love
