Sitaaron chaand se keh do

Posted on: July 6, 2012


A title like “Badi Bahu” (1951)suggests that the movie must be all about self sacrificing lead female character, and that may not send people like me to eagerly look forward to watch the movie. Not by a long shot !

But the music of such songs is something different. One could treat these songs as standalone offerings and enjoy listening to them without needing to watch them as part of the movie.

Here is a delightful “Chhaayaageet” genre of song from “Badi Bahu” (1951). The song is sung by Lata. Lyrics by Rajinder Kumar draw a vivid picture of the feelings of a female who is with her beloved and who does not want the “milan ki raat” to end soon. Anil Biswas is the music director.

This movie was a Variety Productions presendation. It was produced by Asha Biswas and directed by M S Bhagat. The movie had Shekhar, Nimmi, Sulochana Chatterji, Shivraj, Raj Adib, Chandabai, Shivraj, Mumtaz, Vimala Kumari, Baby Saroj etc in it.

Only the audio of this song is available and as such I am unable to say how and on whom this song is picturised. Assuming Nimmi to be the lead actress in the movie, the song may have been picturised on her but I am not sure. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this matter.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Atif M.


Song-Sitaaron chaand se keh do (Badi Bahu)(1951) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Anil Biswas

Lyrics(Provided by Atif M)

sitaaron chaand se keh do
bas itni baat dheere se
milan ki raat hai guzre
milan ki raat dheere se
sitaaro chaand se keh do
bas itni baat dheere se

ari badli chhupa le
do ghadi chanda ko daaman mein
ari badli chhupa le
do ghadi chanda ko daaman mein
chanda ko daaman mein
piya se aaj kehni hai
mujhe ek baat dheere se
milan ki raat hai
guzre milan ki raat dheere se
sitaaro chaand se keh do
keh do
keh do

abhi dil hi mein
dil ki baat thhi
abhi dil hi mein
dil ki baat thi
par jaan li tum ne
par jaan li tum ne
ghata chhaane se pehle
ho gayi barsaat dheere se
milan ki raat hai
guzre milan ki raat dheere se
sitaaron chaand se keh do
bas itni baat dheere se
milan ki raat hai
guzre milan ki raat dheere se
sitaaron chaand se keh do
keh do
keh do

Very clearly people were thinking in 1950, that we’re now an independent country.
So from 1950/51 film industry start new era by cutting off some tradition of 30’s & 40’s music style.
Now the playback singers got more noticeable than the actors and more on the music than the story of the movie.
This movie had nice music/songs including two songs of Raj Kumari..
