Hullo Atuldom

“Chaandni” (1989) from the Yashraj Films stable was produced and directed Yash Chopra. It starred Sridevi, Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Anupam Kher, Sushma Seth, Mita Vasisht, Anant Mahadevan, Manohar Singh, and Waheeda Rehman and Achala Sachdev in guest appearances. It was the story of Chandni Mathur a young effervescent young lady unsure of her emotions for two gentle men.

This was Yash Chopra’s return to his formula of love stories with good music, locales, and heavy dose of emotions and sentiments. It was very successful and also confirmed Sridevi’s position as a super actress.

It had songs written by Anand Bakshi and set to music by Shiv-Hari. Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar, Jolly Mukherjee, Nitin Mukesh, Vinod Rathod, Anupama Deshpande (the humming in the song ‘lagi aaj saawan ki phir woh jhadi hain’), Asha Bhonsle, Babla etc. were the playback singers There is even a Kishore Kumar song in the movie which had 9 songs and the blog has 7 of these.

The Kishore Kumar song has not yet been posted.

Today’s song is the surprise of the movie. I suppose this was the only song that Sridevi has sung in Hindi films. Of course, there is a song in Balu Mahendra directed “Sadma” where Sridevi’s voice was heard along with Kamal Haasan’s in the story-song ‘ek dafa ek jungle tha’ where she giggles and gives reaction to whatever Kamal was saying.

The song with this post is something which I have always wondered about. Whether it is a fantasy or flashback. I have seen this movie a number of times and I have not been able to decide. It has been shot in the picturesque Switzerland. It is one of the songs where the heroine is seen dressed environment appropriately. It also is a lesson for the lover to never meet his love without gifts.

We remember our beloved “khwaabon ki Shehzaadi” Sridevi who left us on 24th February 2018 today. She left her family, friends and countless fans shocked when the news broke over news channels in the wee hours of 25th. The general reaction was “it cannot be true”. How can a person who was so full of vitality and healthy and eagerly expecting her daughter’s first bow on the Bollywood firmament “just go!!!!” She herself just had had a release “Mom” and was seen at various award functions and TV channels. A lasting memory for me, personally, was from the TV dance reality show where she was seen shaking a leg with her contemporary Madhuri Dixit and it was a soothing sight for sore eyes. There have been posts on our blog which have her life-story, list of co-stars etc.
Thank you Sridevi for having entertained us through your life-time having started as a child-actor.

Song-Chaandni o meri chaandni (Chaandni)(1989) Singers-Jolly Mukherjee, Sridevi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Shiv Hari


o meri chaandni
tu meri chaandni

rang bhare badal se
tere nainon ke kaajal se
maine iss dil pe likh diya tera
o meri chaandni
rang bhare baadal se,
tere nainon ke kaajal se
maine iss dil pe likh diya tera na..
o meri chaandni

lal la la lal la la lal laa
lal lal la la la laa
la la la la lal laa
lal lal lal la la laa

chaandni o meri chandni
hmm naam likh diya
bin poochhe yeh kaam kiya
tumne mujhe badnaam kiya
aa aa aa
bin poochhe ye kaam kiya
tumne mujhe badnaam kiya
khair chhodo (giggle)
darpok kahin ke
pyaar mujhe tum karte ho
phir kis baat se darte ho
phir kis baat se darte ho
bolo bolo na

dil pe likhi baaton ko
ponchh na de tu aanchal se
maine is dil pe likh diya tera
o meri chaandni

you fo…ooo…ool,

kaun main
yes yes yes yes
koi phool koi tohfa
tum kuchh bhi saath nahi laate
bade wo ho
samjhaaoon tumhen
pyaar sikhaaoon tumhen
apni mehbooba se milne
khaali haath nahin aate
khaali haath nahin aate
tumhe nahin pata

arre re re re
aaj main phir bhool gaya,
yaad rakhoonga ye kal se
maine iss dil pe likh diya tera
o meri chaandni

ale le le le le le
badi masti karta hai re tu
mere shona shona shona shona
pakdo pakdo pakdo pakdo pakdo pakdo pakdo

o meri chaandni
arre ja ja
chaandni chaandni karta hai
ah ha ha
naam mera dil par likh kar
bas tumne baat bana li hai
tumhen kya pata
maine toh dil ke andar
teri tasveer laga li hai
teri tasveer laga li hai

arre pyar mein tu jeet gayi
apne premi paagal se
maine iss dil pe likh diya tera na…
o meri chaandni
rang bhare baadal se, (lal la la lal la la lal laa)
tere nainon ke kaajal se (lal lal la la la laa)
maine iss dil pe likh diya tera (la la la la lal laa)
o meri chandni (lal laaaaaa)

chaandni main teri chaandni,
o meri chaandni
chaandni main teri chaandni(giggles)
chaandni o meri chaandni
chaandni main teri chaandni

Though I have heard this song many times, never knew that Sridevi is the female voice. Thanks for posting. I have not seen this movie.
