Wo chaand chamka wo noor chhalka

Posted on: February 3, 2013


This article is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Sometimes we meet someone, and are so impressed by the personality and the interaction, that we remember that person lifelong. And sometimes fortune plays such games, that we meet someone we think is so wonderfully special, but then life never does bring the same person near us again. Maybe decades will pass, and we occasionally will think of that person, and remember the feeling of goodness we had. But sometimes life is kind, and allows us to meet some such person whom we met long, long ago, and always remembered with fondness.

Some such thing happened with me couple of days ago. This wonderfully soft and lovely melody of love, is a song that I had heard decades ago, probably once, on the radio. And of course, no memories of any related information.

The only memories that the mind retained were the strumming rhythm, the feeling of soft moonbeams, and a feeling of pleasant fulfillment. Occasionally, infrequently, this rhythm would play in my mind sometimes, and I was not even thinking of locating the song ever again, it seemed so elusive.

But of course, today we have YouTube. And two days back, I stumbled upon once again, on to this exquisite melody. The feeling of elation that swept over me when I heard this song play again – well that is hard to describe. But I am sure when you will hear this song, you will be able to resonate what I felt.

One reason that this song, and many more like this, are lost from sight and keep lurking somewhere in the unknown depths of memory, is that they are part of very obscure films. The films that probably had a very short stint on the projection screen. Few people would have seen it, and even fewer would remember the lovely music that played while they were watching it.

The records of this film probably did not sell much either. The year is 1958, the film has a fantasy name like ‘Son Of Sindbad’ and the music director is the much underappreciated Chitragupt, who made his mark mostly with the grade B and C films. If this song is something to go by, it is a grade A gem that should not have suffered the fate that it did. Even the
radio broadcasters were partial, and forgot to play this often enough.

‘Son Of Sindbad’ makes its debut on this blog, with this song today. It is a film name that many wouldn’t remember. And it is a film about which not much information is available. It is a production from the banner of Neo Light Films. It is produced by Ram Kamlani and Balwant Bhatt, and is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The star cast includes Premnath, Jabeen, Bhagwan, Poornima, Nishi, Tiwari, Cuckoo, Shammi, Sunder, Kuldeep Kaur, Jagdeep, Samson, Jagdish, Ridku, Kriplani, K Tewari, Saroj, Heera, Fazlu, Sayyed, Keshav, Abdul, Kenny etc. The film has eight songs that have come from the pen of Prem Dhawan. And the music, of course, is by Chitrgupt. If this song is anything to go by, I am now looking for more songs from this film.

The singing voices are of Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. A very lovely duet, sung under the moonbeams, as lovers talk about matters of the heart. Enjoy.

wo chaand chamka, wo noor chhalka
lo halka halka nasha chhaa raha hai

(See, O my love)
The dazzling moon
And the splendor of light brimming over
Ah, the euphoria of joy, spread around us

ye kaisa jaadoo, mujhe sambhaalo
ke mere haathon se dil jaa rahaa hai

A wonderful magic this is
Oh, hold me steady
My heart seems to be going away from me

dhadhkane tez si ho gayeen, aaj nazren kahin kho gayeen
kadam kadam pe mastiyaan, nazar nazar mein shokhiyaan
ye chaandni mein kaun chhup ke aa rahaa hai

The heartbeats are hastened
And the vision is lost itself today
Delightful fun is every step
Playful hints in every glance
Someone arriving, hidden in the moonbeams
Say, who that may be?

mauj tadpe ke saahil miley, dil ye chaahe koi dil miley
hamen teri hai aarzoo, hamen teri hai justjoo
ghadi ghadi ye dil tujhe bulaa rahaa hai

The waves are restless to meet the shores
And the heart
It yearns for the company of another heart
You are my desire
And you are mind
Listen, this heart is calling out to you
With every heartbeat, every moment

wo chaand chamka
wo noor chhalka
lo halka halka nasha chhaa raha hai
ye kaisa jaadoo
mujhe sambhaalo
ke mere haathon se dil jaa rahaa hai

wo chaand chamka
wo noor chhalka
lo halka halka nasha chhaa raha hai
ye kaisa jaadoo
mujhe sambhaalo
ke mere haathon se dil jaa rahaa hai

dhadhkanen tez si ho gayeen
aaj nazren kahin kho gayeen
dhadhkane tez si ho gayeen
aaj nazren kahin kho gayeen

kadam kadam pe mastiyaan
nazar nazar mein shokhiyaan
ye chaandni mein kaun chhup ke aa rahaa hai
ye kaisa jaadoo
mujhe sambhaalo
ke mere haathon se dil jaa rahaa hai

wo chaand chamka
wo noor chhalka
lo halka halka nasha chhaa raha hai

mauj tadpe ke saahil miley
dil ye chaahe koi dil miley
mauj tadpe ke saahil miley
dil ye chaahe koi dil miley
hamen teri hai aarzoo
hamen teri hai justjoo
ghadi ghadi ye dil tujhe bulaa rahaa hai
wo chaand chamka
wo noor chhalka
lo halka halka nasha chhaa raha hai
ye kaisa jaadoo
mujhe sambhaalo
ke mere haathon se dil jaa rahaa hai

वो चाँद चमका
वो नूर छलका
लो हल्का हल्का नशा छा रहा है
ये कैसा जादू
मुझे संभालो
के मेरे हाथों से दिल जा रहा है

वो चाँद चमका
वो नूर छलका
लो हल्का हल्का नशा छा रहा है
ये कैसा जादू
मुझे संभालो
के मेरे हाथों से दिल जा रहा है

धड़कनें तेज़ सी हो गईं
आज नज़रें कहीं खो गईं
धड़कनें तेज़ सी हो गईं
आज नज़रें कहीं खो गईं

कदम कदम पे मस्तियाँ
नज़र नज़र में शोखियाँ
ये चाँदनी में कौन छुप के आ रहा है
ये कैसा जादू
मुझे संभालो
के मेरे हाथों से दिल जा रहा है

वो चाँद चमका
वो नूर छलका
लो हल्का हल्का नशा छा रहा है

मौज तड़पे के साहिल मिले
दिल ये चाहे कोई दिल मिले
मौज तड़पे के साहिल मिले
दिल ये चाहे कोई दिल मिले
हमें तेरी है आरज़ू
हमें तेरी है जुस्तजू
घड़ी घड़ी ये दिल तुझे बुला रहा है
वो चाँद चमका
वो नूर छलका
लो हल्का हल्का नशा छा रहा है
ये कैसा जादू
मुझे संभालो
के मेरे हाथों से दिल जा रहा है
