Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 6

‘ऐ’ – ऐ चाँद तू देना गवाही

कहाँ आवाज़ दें तुमको कहाँ हो

सिर्फ एक गीतों का ही तो आसरा है॰ ॰ ॰ और कहाँ आवाज़ दें तुमको, ना जाने किस जहान् में चले गए॰ ॰ ॰

We arrive at the sixth episode of this series – a lively duet from the 1963 film ‘Holiday In Bombay’.

As I look at the blog statistics, the number of Rafi Sb – Asha Bhosle duets currently stands at 496, prior to this post. These are strictly duet songs. I make this specific distinction because there are another 20 songs in the blog, in which this pair is accompanied by one or more other voices. They are singing together but essentially not is a pure duet format.

‘Holiday In Bombay’ is a film produced under the banner of Yugchhaaya, and is directed by PL Santoshi. The list of actors in this film is, Shashi Kapoor, Vijaya Chaudhary, Rajendra Nath, Naseem Banu, Dhumal, P Kailash, Ulhas, Randhir, Sulochana Chatterjee, Rajan Haksar, Jeevankala, Ram Kumar, Renu Maakad, Heera Sawant, Kundan, BB Bhalla, D Dileep, Nazeer Kashmiri, Hublikar, and Lakshmi Chhaaya.

Geet Kosh lists eight songs for this film written by four songwriters – Anand Bakshi, Anjaan, PL Santoshi and Anwar Farrukhabaadi. This particular song is penned by Anwar. The music direction is by N Datta.

Although the complete film is available online, the video clip of this song is not. I request other folks who might have seen this film, to please add more information about the picturization of this song.

Song – Ae Chanda Tu Dena Gawaahi (Holiday In Bombay) (1963) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anwar Farrukhabaadi, MD – N Dutta

Lyrics

ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi

gungunaane lagin aaj tanhaaiyaan
baj rahi hain kahin door shehnaaian
gungunaane lagin aaj tanhaaiyaan
baj rahi hain kahin door shehnaaian
ae sitaaro hanso
ae nazaaro hanso
geet chheda hai jaati hui shaam ne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi

raat ke haath mein chaand ka phool hai
ye koi khwaab hai ya koi bhool hai
raat ke haath mein chaand ka phool hai
ye koi khwaab hai ya koi bhool hai
dil ko mehka diya
hum ko behka diya
teri aankhon ke rangeen paighaam ne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi

ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही

गुनगुनाने लगीं आज तन्हाइयाँ
बज रहीं हैं कहीं दूर शहनाइयाँ
गुनगुनाने लगीं आज तन्हाइयाँ
बज रहीं हैं कहीं दूर शहनाइयाँ
ऐ सितारो हंसो
ऐ नज़ारो हंसो
गीत छेड़ा है जाती हुई शाम ने
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही

रात के हाथ में चाँद का फूल है
ये कोई ख़्वाब है या कोई भूल है
रात के हाथ में चाँद का फूल है
ये कोई ख़्वाब है या कोई भूल है
दिल को महका दिया
हमको बहका दिया
तेरी आँखों के रंगीन पैगाम ने
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही
