Chadhe chanda to tum bhi chale aana

Posted on: July 3, 2012


“Aplam Chaplam” (1961) is a movie about which very little is known. Fortunately we can count on our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh to provide us all the details about such obscure movies. Here is what he has to say about “Aplam Chaplam” (1961):-

APLAM CHAPLAM-1961 was yet another attempt by Roop K Shorey to relive the magic of Ek thi Ladki-1949. Throughout his life he was obsessed with this one theme only. Additionally he would invariably take I.S.Johar and Majnu, whom he considered as his mascots. Johar considered this pair as “Bob Hope and Bing Crosby ” of India.

In this film again the story was written by Johar on the same lines with minor changes.

Aplam(Johar) and Chaplam(Majnu) are small time crooks. One day they bring a beautiful girl Lajwanti(Kum kum) from an orphanage with a promise to make her a big film star. They set up a Theatre and arrange Lajo’s dances. They make lot of money.

Ramesh(Ravinder Kapoor), a young man from a town, comes to the city to invest some money. This jodi catch him and invest(swallow) his money in the theatre. Lajo and Ramesh fall in love.

Actually Lajo is an orphan with her aunt in a village, who sends her to orphanage to save her from her own husband Biharilal(Tiwari). When Biharilal learns from the aunt where Lajo is, he comes to the city to get her, as she is an heiress to a great fortune. He contacts Aplam Chaplam to get to Lajo. Meanwhile Ramesh and Lajo are separated due to a misunderstanding.

When the crooks realise that Biharilal wants to kill Lajo, they decide to save her and in the process also repent and reform.

In the end Lajo is saved, Biharilal goes to jail and Lajo and Ramesh get reunited and Aplam-Chaplam become Lajo’s Estate Managers.

The movie has been forgotten, and the songs of this movie have suffered the same fate. But what songs this movie has ! I have discussed one song from this movie in the past. Here is another song.

This song is a duet. It is sung by Lata and Mukesh. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.


Song-Chadhe chanda to tum bhi chale aanaa (Aplam Chaplam)(1961) Singers-Lata, Mukesh, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

chadhe chanda toh tum bhi chale aanaa
sajan tumhe pyaar ki kasam
chadhe chanda toh tum bhi chale aanaa
sajan tumhe pyaar ki kasam
jahaan bolo deewaana chala aaye
ki dil-e-beqaraar ki kasam
jahaan bolo deewaana chala aaye
ki dil-e-beqaraar ki kasam

tere hi damm se toh
phoolon pe nikhaar hai
tere hi damm se toh
phoolon pe nikhaar hai
tuh hai agar toh
khizaaon mein bahaar hai

ulfat ki raahon mein
mehki fizaaon mein
aa jana chupke se
jhoom ke balam
chadhe chanda toh tum bhi chale aanaa
sajan tumhe pyaar ki kasam
jahaan bolo deewaana chala aaye
ki dil-e-beqaraar ki kasam

aajaa main baithi hoon
sapne sajaa ke
aajaa mai baithi hun
sapne sajaa ke
rakhoongi dil mein main
tujhko bithaa ke
jab tak yeh taare hain
ham toh tumhaare hain
tumpe lutaa denge jaan bhi sanam
jahaan bolo deewana chala aaye
ki dil-e-beqaraar ki kasam

chadhe chanda toh tum bhi chale aanaa
sajan tumhe pyaar ki kasam

dil joh diyaa toh
kya parda jahaan se
dil joh diyaa toh
kya parda jahaan se

mitna hi hai toh mitenge badi shaan se
hoga joh hona hai
kaahe ka rona hai
hanske hi sehne hain
pyaar ke sitam

chadhe chanda toh tum bhi chale aanaa
sajan tumhe pyaar ki kasam
jahaan bolo deewana chala aaye
ki dil-e-beqaraar ki kasam
