As can be seen from the table of 1961, Lata Mangeshkar sang 152 songs in movies released in 1961. As many as 125 of these songs have been covered in the blog. Out of 44 movies of 1960 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 30 movies are alreday covered. So we have to look at the remaining 14 movies to find Lata Mangesahkar songs of 1961 to discuss in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us such Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Amrit Manthan”(1961). This mythological movie was and directed by S N Tripathi for Agraal Productions, Bombay. The movie had Usha Kiran, Manhar Desai, Ulhas, Sundar, Sulochana Chatterjee, Dalpat Kaka, Ratnmala, Premlata, Amirbai Karnataki, Radheshyam, Babu Raje, H N Kalla, Dev Chand, Moti Vijay, Moolchand, Baijnath, Habeeb, Yashodhara Katju, Uma Dutt, Jeeankala, Roopmal etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. It appears that records were made only for four songs. Names of singers are known only for these four songs of the movie. In absence of records of the other movie, we have no idea about the singers of those ten songs. Based on the details of four songs, we know that one of these songs is a Lata solo.

Here is the song from “Amrit Manthan”(1961). The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. B D Mishra is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi. The mukhda of the song “raat dhalne lagi” is similar to the well known song, Aa aa bhi jaa raat dhhalne lagi from “Teesri Kasam”(1966), also sung by Lata Mangeshkar. But this “Amrit Manthan “(1961) song came five years before the “Teesri Kasam”(1966) song. These to songs are different.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knoledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Chaand dhhalne lagaa dil machalne lagaa (Amrit Manthan)(1961) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-B D Mishra, MD- S N Tripathi

Lyrics

aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa

chaand dhalne laga aa
chaand dhalne laga
dil machalne laga
aa bhi jaa
aa bhi jaa
aa bhi jaao piya
chaand dhalne laga
raat jaane ko hai
bhor aane ko hai
sang tu hai nahin
mera dhadke jiya
chaand dhalne laga

kitni bholi si naadaan thhi main
pyaar se haay anjaan thhi main
ras bhari adhkhili si kali thhi
ek chhoti si muskaan thhi main
ek chhoti si muskaan thhi main
toone ye kya kiya
o salone piya
baat hi baat mein
mera dil le liya
chaand dhalne laga

dhoondhta hai tumhen pyaar mera
is nasheeli suhaani ghadi mein
raah mein nain kab se bichhaaye
baawri si akeli khadi main
baawri si akeli khadi main
neend aati nahin
jaag paaati nahin
kaun sa tumne mujh pe ye jaadu kiya
chaand dhalne laga
dil machalne laga
aa bhi ja
aa bhi ja
aa bhi jaao piya
chaand dhalne laga
hmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm
