Jhoom rahi hain mast bahaaren

Wow, and what a wonderfully melodious gem this one turns out to be. And an absolutely fantastic Rafi – Asha duet. In fact this was actually the song that I had prepared for posting yesterday, in the run up to the 300th Rafi – Asha duet and 200th song by Qamar Jalaalabaadi. Almost at the last moment, I got this message from Atul ji, requesting me to post the ‘Baaje Waala, Patiaayaale Waala’ instead. And so I switched the songs. And as I had the lyrics all ready to go, I am posting this as one of the songs to welcome in the new year. The melody and the tempo of music is so uplifting, it is a befitting piece of music to play on a celebration like today.

It was in October 1957 that the Soviet Union (now the Russian Federation) made the first successful launch of Sputnik, a rocket propelled craft that for the first time was able to leave the earth’s pull of gravity and make it to the outer space beyond the earth’s atmosphere. The future of the spaceflight was still in its infancy and a matter of speculation. At that time the idea of a human being flying into outer space in a similar rocket was a fancy that scientists had, and the thought of human beings reaching the moon had probably not even occurred to them. The flight of Apollo 11 and its landing on the surface of moon was a good 12 years into the future, and at best was a figment of imagination in 1957.

Well, that was what the scientists and the science administrators thought. Not so with the writers and producers of Hindi films. In 1902, the French film director Georges Melies had already created a silent film titled ‘Trip To Moon’, a lofty pioneering effort to put on celluloid, the ideas of the famous science fiction novel of the same name by the author Jules Verne. Taking a cue from this French production, and mixing in all the fanciful speculations that got generated after the Soviet Union’s proof of concept of viable space travel, the Hindi film industry came out with a string of films based on the premise of a trip to moon. ‘Chaand Ki Duniya’ in 1959, ‘Rocket Girl’ in 1961, ‘Trip To Moon’ or ‘Chaand Par Chadaai’ in 1967 are the names that readily come to mind, as the films that were made by the Hindi film industry on this topic.

‘Chaand Ki Duniya’ is a 1959 production from the banner of Filmistan Limited, Bombay and is directed by Mohan Sinha. The lead pair in the film were the promising newcomers at that time, Sohan Kapila and Nalini Chonker. The other cast of actors includes Ram Avtar, P Kailash, Badri Prasad, Manohar Gir, Indira Bansal, Husn Banu, Jugnu, Wajid Khan, Rajeshwar Singh, BM Vyas, M Rashid, Vijay Kumar, Neena, Noor, Sunder, Madhav Pawar, Jugal
Kishore, Shantaram etc. The film has six songs, all written by Qamar Jalaalabaadi. The music composition is by Nirmal Kumar, a name that is an alias used by Shiv Dayal Batish (SD Batish). Interesting to note that Pyaare Lal is listed as the assistant music director in this film.

The video clip of the song opens with Sohan Kapila and Ram Avtar hiding behind some rocks in what purportedly is the surface of the moon. And they see a group of heavenly fairies, dancing in a frolic and singing. The leading fairy in this group is Nalini Chonker. One can also see Indira Bansal in the group of dancing ladies (at 2:10 in the clip, the round faced lady that is standing behind the row of three ladies in front).

The best thing about this song is the music. It is such a lilting and charming creation, that will simply make you hum along with it. Listen to this superb gem from a fantasy movie that dates back more than half a century. Enjoy.
