Today (28 January 2023) is the 16th remembrance day of O P Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007). He ruled the roost in HFM during 1950s and 1960s, and that too on his own terms. Imagine not using the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in his songs and still managing to create great songs. Curiously, he found his playback singer of choice in Lata Mangeshkar’s family itself, in the form of her younger sinter Asha Bhonsle. There is no doubt that it was O P Nayyar who offered Asha Bhonsle the opportunity to become a playback singer second only to her illustrious elder sister.

This association of Asha Bhonsle and O P Nayyar lasted nearly two years before they had an acrimonious break up.

We as music lovers are more interested in music and less on the personal affairs of those creating them. As far as O P Nayyar is concerned, he worked in 73 movies (give or take a few). As many as 50 of his movies, including almost all of his movies of 1950s and 1960s have already been YIPPEED in the blog. The few unYIPPEED movies of those decades are unYIPPEED because the balance songs are unavailable.

So we have to movies in the later part of O P Nayyar’s career, if we want to discuss songs composed by him.

“Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) is one of his less known movie. It was produced and directed by Kamran, a B grade movie maker (Father of Farah and Sajid Khan) for Rainbow Films, Bombay. The movie had Dev Mukherji, Nandita Bose (making debut), Jalal Agha, Rupesh Kumar, Anwar Ali, Nikita, Tiwari, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Shyam Kumar, Randhir, Anjum, Birbal, Maruti, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begum, Shefali, Raj Rani, Mehboob, Jayshree T etc in it.

The movie flopped and so the songs of this movie had no change to get popular because they were not heard by most music lovers.

“Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) had four songs in it. One song has been covered in the blog.

As a tribute of O P Nayyar, here is the second sonng from “Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P nayyar of course.

It is a sweet song to listen to. The song sounds like the songs she sang under O P Nayyar’s baton during those years.

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

This song is the 500th song of OP Nayyar in the blog as a music director. This is the final century of O P Nayyar seeing that O P Nayyar composed around 570 songs in all. That means we are within striking distance of covering all available O P Nayyar compositions in the blog.

We take this oppotunity to play our tribute to the legendary music director O P Nayyar.

Song-Chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle (Aisa Bhi Hota Hai)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar


chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai

ek hansi iski hai saari duniya meri
ek muskaan sau saal ki zindagi
mujhko duniya mein ab aur kya chaahiye
mil gayi hai zamaane ki saari khushi
maine barson jo dekha thha sapna
aaj kismat se poora hua hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai

har ghadi har samay muskuraata hua
phool sa bachpana meri baahon mein ho
laal mera bada hoke jaaye jahaan
kaamyaabi sada iski raahon mein ho
door har dum rahe gham ke saye
ye hamesha hi meri dua hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
