Wahi chaandni hai wahi aasmaan hai

Posted on: August 21, 2012

There have been hundreds of singers, lyricists and music directors who have contributed their mites in enriching the Hindi movie music. Songs from over three hundred singers, over three hundred lyricists and over two hundred music directors find representation in this blog.

Here is a lovely composition from one of the lesser known musical team. This song is sung by Talat Mehmood, but the lyricist- music director team is much less known. Pt Phani is the lyricist and music is composed by K Datta.

“Rishta” (1954) was a Rajasthan Production movie. It was directed by Aslam. The movie had Suresh, Nigar Sultana, Vijayalaxmi, Nilam, Leela Misra, Anwar, S. Nazir etc in it.

Only the audio of this song is available, but one can guess that the song was picturised on Suresh.

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

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

hmmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm

wahi chaandni hai wahi aasmaan hai
bahaaren wahi aur wahi gulsitaan hai
wahi chaandni hai wahi aasmaan hai
bahaaren wahi aur wahi gulsitaan hai
magar jis se roshan ye dil kaa jahaan hai
chhupa chaand jaa kar woh mera kahaan hai
wahi chaandni hai wahi aasmaan hai
bahaaren wahi aur wahi gulsitaan hai

wahi dil wahi main
mohabbat bhi wohi
nigaahon mein abb tak hai soourat bhi wohi
magar na woh mehfil na woh daastaan hai
magar na woh mehfil na woh daastaan hai
na woh daastaan hai
wahi chaandni hai wohi aasmaan hai
bahaaren wahi aur wahi gulsitaan hai
aaa aa aaa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

mehakti hain kaliyaan to chubhte hai kaante
sisakte hai gunchhe to lagate hai chaante
magar dekhta kaun ye meharbaan hai
magar dekhta kaun ye meharbaan hai
ye meharbaan hai
wahi chaandni hai wahi aasmaan hai
bahaaren wahi aur wahi gulsitaan hai

This, in my view, the best song from ‘Rishta’. Very rare to find Talat Mehmood singing for K Datta.

However, this audio clip does not appear to be from original sound track of the film nor from the original record version. One can feel the orchestration on a stereophonic sound while hearing this audio clip.

I had read somewhere on the YT comments that this song was re sung by Talat Mehmood which he used to sing in his concerts abroad with Enoch Daniels playing his guitar. If I remember correctly, for this version of the song, Enoch Daniels composed the music.


Yes you seem to be right as it does not have a 1954ish sound about it.


Yes, this is a rerecorded version. I have heard the “original” version which is more fast.


Original version of the song :

The original version is faster with softer and shorter musical interludes. The result is that one gets to listen to more of Talat Mehmood’s voice and less of the music.


Always love to listen to Talat Mehmood songs. Enjoyed this lovely song. Thanks for the post.
(Listened to both the versions 🙂 ).
Thanks again,
