Tum kahaan le chale ho

‘Poonam Ki Raat’ (1965) – a film that is rich in wonderful songs. The lyrics from the pen of Shailendra and the lilting tunes from the baton of Salil Chaudhry, have made almost all songs of this film as wonderful gems. Three songs from the film are already represented here – the soulful and pensive rendering of “Dil Tadpe Tadpaaye” by Rafi Saab, the fabulous, ritzy dance number “Ta Dhim Tana Dhim. . .” that only Asha Bhosle can do, and the haunting sounds of “Saathi Re. . . Tujh Bin Jiyaa Udaas Re” in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar. So now it is the turn of a romantic duet to follow. And this song here is one wonderful melodious creation, with voices of Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar.

The film ‘Poonam Ki Raat’ is produced and directed by Kishore Sahu, under his own banner, ‘Kishore Sahu Productions’. The main star cast of this film includes Manoj Kumar, Kumud Chhugaani, Nandini, Kishore Sahu, Bela Bose, Shiv Kumar, Rajendranath, Ravindra Bannerjee, Prem Chopra, Praveen Chaudhry, Sapru, Rajkishore, Bhardwaj, Jankidas, Sarita, Sabina, Gope Raj, Shailesh Kumar etc. This film is the debut appearance of Kumud Chhugaani (more details about her career are given below). The following synopsis is adapted from the earlier comments posted by Arun ji Deshmukh, our very own in house encyclopedia of Hindi films and music.

‘Poonam Ki Raat’ (1965) is a Kishore Sahu film in totality. He not only produced and directed it, but also wrote the story, the screenplay, dialogues and he also acted in it.

Prakash Gupta is accompanying his friend Chandan to his hometown, where Chandan’s father is ailing. Just before entering town, Prakash hears from villagers that Lala Baijnath, Chandan’s father, murdered a young girl Rani, whose ghost roams in the bungalow. He is curious. When he enters the house, he meets Jyoti, Chandan’s younger sister, with whom he falls in love immediately.

In the night there are whispering and moaning sounds of a girl. Nandini, Chandan’s other sister is equally beautiful. The mystery deepens when Lala Baijnath’s nurse is murdered. There are too many characters under suspicion- the smart family doctor, the silent Chandan himself, the complaining mother, the calculating elder brother, the scheming sister in law, the widowed sister, her temperamental son or any of the many servants in the hous. Only because of too many suspects, the entire film became weak, and the suspense got diluted.

This film was the debut movie of Kumud Chhugaani. Kumud Chhugani was an accomplished classical dancer, who had won a trophy from Jawaharlal Nehru in 1963 youth festival at Delhi. She was a talented actress too. She acted in 18 films in a career spanning 20 years. She has worked opposite leading stars like Dharmendra, Bishwajeet, Joy Mukherjee, Rajendra Kumar, Manoj Kumar, Sanjay Khan etc. Her last film was Karmayudh-1985. She acted in several Hindi and Gujarati plays also. Retired now, she lives with her husband in Mumbai, helping him with his Interior Decoration business in Mumbai.

Enjoy this remarkable duet in the voice of Mukesh and Lata ji.

tum kahaan le chale ho sajan albele
ye kaun sa jahaan hai
bataao to, bataao to

Where do you take me
O my jolly adorable dear
Tell me what this place is
O please tell me

ye safar anjaana, ye pyaar ki hain raahen
zaraa sang mere
tum aawo to, tum aawo to

Ah, this mysterious journey
These unknown paths
Come let’s tread these paths together
Come, o please come with me

tum ne aankhon se kya jaadu daala
mann mera huaa matwaala
saanwariyaa
behke hum, tum dum bhar kahin ruk jaao to

O what magic you have cast
With your eyes
That my heart feels light and ebullient
O my dear
A dizziness prevails (over me)
Pray let’s pause and rest awhile

abhi jhoomengi dekhna fizaayen
gungunaane lagengi hawaaein
zaraa tum pyaar ka ye taraana
mere sang gaawo to

These lovely vistas
Will be swinging with us
And the breeze will be humming
Come, sing this song of love with me

bataao to
ye safar anjaana
ye pyaar ki hain raahen
zaraa sang mere
tum aawo to
tum aawo to

tum kahaan le chale ho
