Lullaby was a much loved genre of songs in HFM during its golden era. Majority of lullabies are naturally sung by female singers and picturised on females playing mother to their young ones. The blog has 107 lullabies sung by 18 female singers (and a few male singers as well). Lata Mangeshkar dominates this genre. She has lent her voice in as many as 43 lullabies. Asha Bhonsle is a distant second with 13 lullabies. No other singer is in double figures and that includes legendary female singers like Khursheed Bano, Amirbai Karnataki, Rajkumari, Suraiyya, Geeta Dutt, Suman Kalyanpur etc.

Here is another lullaby song from HFM. This song is from “Aandhi Aur Toofaan”(1964).

“Aandhi Aur Toofaan”(1964) was directed by Mohammad Hussain for Kamran Films, Bombay. This “stunt” movie had Dara Singh, Mumtaz, Kamran, Jeewan, Ratanmala, Amar, Bhagwan, Anjum, Leela, Uma Dutt, Habeeb, Laxmi Chhaaya, Kamal Mohan, Munshi Munaqqa, Qamar, Fajlu, Mustafa, Khursheed, Anand, Arvind Kumar, Balram, Prem, Bihari, Moolchand, Sabir, Maula, Azam, Dawood, Ismail, Honey Irani, Saleem, Hercules etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

This lullaby song is sung by Mubarak Begam. It is the first lullaby song sung by her to appear in the blog. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

The picturisation shows a mother singing this lullaby to her twin kids. I am unable to identify the lady. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

This movie is from 1964 and I cannot help feel that the kids seen in the picturisation must have been in the same age group as a few of our regulars including myself. 🙂

“Jalti Nishaani” (1957) was directed by Harish for Emsheth production, Bombay. The movie had Kamal Kapoor, Geeta Bali, Kuldeep Kaur, Sundar, Ulhaas, Chaman Puri etc in it.

Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth song from this movie. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

I am unable to make out the lyrics of the chorus which is either gibberish or words in some other language. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us what these worlds could be.

The Golden era of HFM was well and truly over after 1980s, with Disco “music” sounding the death knell of HFM as we knew till then. In these “music”, lyrics were all but dispensed with.

HFM continued to have a few nice songs even during the “disco” era. There were still some artists who refused to compromise with quality and refused to stoop to the new low that was set as the new standards of HFM post 1980.

“Saagar”(1985) was one such movie whose music felt like a breath of fresh air during that era. This movie had come from the stables of a well known and well respected production house, one that had given us “Sholay”(1975).

“Saagar”(1985) was Produced by G P Sippy and directed by Ramesh Sippy. The movie had Rishi Kapoor, Kamal Haasan, Dimple Kapadia, Saeed Jaffrey, Shafi Inamdaar, Nadira, A K Hangal, Madhur Jaffrey, Satish Kaushik, Goga Kapoor, Kiran Vairale, Lilliput, Shobha Khote, Sudhir Pandey, Sharat Saxena, Mushtaq Merchant, Jairaj etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Saagar”(1985) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Jawed Akhtar, who wrote the script of “Sholay”(1975) alongwith Salim Khan as Salim Jawed, had turned a lyricist by then. “Saagar”(1975) was one of the first (if not the first) movies where he penned lyrics.

R D Burman composed the music.

The song is picturised as a club song where Rishi Kapoor, holding a guitar, is seen lip syncing this song. The song is addressed to his long separated flame (played by Dimple Kapadia). Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia had last actded together in “Bobby”(1973) which was the launch vehcle for Rishi Kapoor as well as Dimple Kapadia. while Rishi Kapoor successfully got launched and established, Dimple Kapadia, in a surprise movie married Rajesh Khanna and vanished from films. It was more than one decade later that she was persuaded to make comeback to movies. She made quite a stunning comback in movie like “Aitbaar”(1985) and “Saagar”(1985).

Music of these movies were quie stunning and played stellar roles in the box office success of these movies.

The song under discussion is one such song. It remains a timeless classic to this day.


Song-Ho chehra hai ya chaand khila hai (Saagar)(1985) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-R D Burman
Chorus

Lyrics

ho chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya
chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

arre tu kya jaane teri khaatir
kitna hai betaab ye dil
tu kya jaane dekh rahaa hai
kaise kaise khwaab ye dil
dil kehtaa hai tu hai yahaan
to jaataa lamhaa thham jaaye
waqt ka dariyaa behte behte
is manzar mein jam jaaye
toone deewaanaa dil ko banaayaa
is dil par ilzaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

ho aaj mai tujhase door sahi
aur tu mujhse anjaan sahi
tera saath nahin paaun to
khair tera aramaan sahi

lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalalala
lalalalalaa
laalaalaa

ho ye armaan ho
shor nahin ho
khaamoshi ke mele hon
is duniya mein koi nahin ho
ham donon hi akele hon
tere sapne dekh rahaa hoon
aur meraa ab kaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bataa tera naam hai kya
chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 12
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –


‘च’ – चाँदनी छिटकी हुई है मुस्कुराती रात है ॰ ॰ ॰

तुम तो दिल के तार छेड़ कर ॰ ॰ ॰

The songs that you have rendered, the legacy that you have left behind, it strums the strings of the heart and brings unfettered pleasure to the listening mind. The treasure is limitless, and yet limited. Limitless – that we can hear them over and over again, and the listening pleasure multiplies. And yes, limited too – for we know now, what we have is what it is; there will be additions to this treasure no more.

Continuing with this delightful series of duets of Rafi Sb. We skip the ‘ङ’ letter in the alphbet – no meaningful words start with this letter and so no songs starting with it either.

We now come on to the next letter ‘‘. And to this delightful song from almost seven decades back. The film is from 1950 – a time when the companion singer was still known as Geeta Roy. The film is ‘Hamaara Ghar’. A wonderful chhaayageet song which comes from the pen of Anjum. The lyricists name appears as such; most likely this is the same person as Anjum Jaipuri. The melody comes from the mind of Chitragupt, a creator of many an unforgettable track.

The film is produced under the banner of Hindustan Chitra and is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The cast of actors is listed as Durga Khote, Umakant, Veera, Agha, Meena Kumari, Geeta Bose, David, Jankidas, Ramesh Gupta, Yashodhara Katju. I cannot with certainty make any guess about the lead pair of the film. I request knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this film and this song.

The film has seven songs, two of which are already showcased here on our blog. Here is the third song from this film. Think 1950, and think melody – the queen. A delightful duet. Enjoy.

 

Song – Chaandni Chhitki Hui Hai Muskuraati Raat Hai (Hamaara Ghar) (1950) Singer – Geeta Roy, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anjum, MD – Chitragupt
Mohammed Rafi + Geeta Dutt

Lyrics

chaandni chhitki hui hai
muskuraati raat hai
chaandni chhitki hui hai
muskuraati raat hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai

tumko kya dekhen sitaaro
tum puraane ho chuke
tumko kya dekhen sitaaro
tum puraane ho chuke
hum to un ko dekhte hain
jo hamaare ho chuke
jo hamaare ho chuke
dil se dil ki baat hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai

jhoomte hain aaj armaan
hans rahi hai zindagi
jhoomte hain aaj armaan
hans rahi hai zindagi
dil to pehle hi miley the
mil gai taqdeer bhi
mil gai taqdeer bhi
aji haath mein ab haath hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai

ik naya jeevan hai paaya
ik nai duniya basi
ik naya jeevan hai paaya
ik nai duniya basi
mil gayi hai do dilon ko
saari duniya ki khushi
saari duniya ki khushi
kya niraali baat hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai

chaandni chhitki hui hai
muskuraati raat hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai

चाँदनी छिटकी हुई है
मुस्कुराती रात है
चाँदनी छिटकी हुई है
मुस्कुराती रात है

तुमको क्या देखें सितारो
तुम पुराने हो चुके
तुमको क्या देखें सितारो
तुम पुराने हो चुके
हम तो उनको देखते हैं
जो हमारे हो चुके

दिल से दिल की बात है

झूमते हैं आज अरमां
हंस रही है ज़िंदगी
झूमते हैं आज अरमां
हंस रही है ज़िंदगी
दिल तो पहले ही मिले थे
मिल गई तक़दीर भी
मिल गई तक़दीर भी
अजी हाथ में अब हाथ है
एक चंदा आसमान पर
इक हमारे साथ है

इक नया जीवन है पाया
नयी दुनिया बसी
इक नया जीवन है पाया
इक नयी दुनिया बसी
मिल गई है दो दिलों को
सारी दुनिया की खुशी
सारी दुनिया की खुशी
क्या निराली बात है
एक चंदा आसमान पर
इक हमारे साथ है

चाँदनी छिटकी हुई है
मुस्कुराती रात है
एक चंदा आसमान पर
इक हमारे साथ है

Today is the birth anniversary of playback singer Madhubala Jhaveri. She was born this day in 1935.

Madhubala was born into a musically inclined family of renowned artists. Her mother, Smt Hirabai Jhaveri and her aunt Smt Sharmila Margaonkar, were both well known singers, and often performed on All India Radio. Although brought up in an atmosphere of music, she was initially not inclined to pursue it as a career. In fact after her matriculation, she joined the JJ School of Arts, deciding for herself that the devotion and time required for classical music training was not what she wanted. But the fate had planned otherwise. In a chance encounter, music director Hansraj Behl heard her sing in a private gathering, and was immediately attracted to her voice. He was searching for a new voice to sing for him in his upcoming film ‘Apni Izzat’ (1952). He invited her to sing for this film.

Her debut was very impressive, and the industry immediately took notice of her. It is said that at that time, the refrain that was expressed in the media was, that “. . .another Lata has been born”. She had an active singing career during the decade of 1950s, and worked with many mainstream music directors of that era. Her voice was termed as sweet and pleasing, and her diction and articulation was wonderful. However, her voice could not sustain the higher octaves, somewhat limiting her range. Her voice was considered a perfect foil for Talat Mehmood, and she has rendered many memorable duets with him.

Her career faded away in the early 1960s. After a couple of renditions in 1961, we then hear her voice  for one last time in the 1968 film ‘London Express’ (no records available in public domain so far). After being in oblivion for almost four and a half decades, she passed away on Sep 11th in 2013.

The song I have selected for today’s remembrance is a solo from the 1952 film ‘Raajrani Damyanti’. The music is by Avinash Vyas and the words are written by Neelkanth Tiwari.

The film is a mythological offering from the banner of Roopkamal Chitra, Bombay. It is produced by Mahipatrai Shah and Anoop Chand Shah, and is directed by Raje Nene. The main cast of actors includes Nirupa Roy, Trilok Kapoor, Usha Kiran, Vikas, Baby Tabassum, Ratan Kumar, Prakash, Basant Kanse, Shakeela, Shakuntala, Uma Devi, Yashwant Dave, and Ram Singh amongst others.

This song is a lovely expression of a heart in love, inviting the moon and the stars to come and light up the life. The words by Neelkanth Tiwari evoke a very romantic ambience. It is a wonderful pleasure to listen to this song.

There is one word in the second antaraa that I am not able to decipher. I request other readers and friends with keener ears to please help identify the missing word.

Song – Chamak Rahe Taarey  (Raajrani Damyanti) (1952) Singer – Madhubala Jhaveri, Lyrics – Neelkanth Tiwari, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

preet meri aankhon mein aa ke pukaare
aadhe tumhaare piya

meethe meethe sapnon ki chhoti si naao
meethe meethe sapnon ki chhoti si naao

dhar dhar ke paaon
lehren bhi gaati hain gal bainyaan daale
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare
chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare

door mat hona kabhi praanon ke pyaare
door mat hona kabhi praanon ke pyaare
phool hon hamaare

aur charan tumhaare
bol rahe sarita ke donon kinaare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare
chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya

“Mohabbat Ki Jeet”(1960) was produced and directed by B S Ranga for Vikram Productions, Madras. This movie had Raja Sulochana, Ranjan, Sowcar Janki, Sriram, Rajagopal etc in it. It appears from the cast that this movie may have been a remake of some South Indian movie though HFGK is silent about this fact.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Mohabbat Ki Jeet”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Shreeram Saaz is the lyricist. Music is composed by Md Shafi.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. The song sounds like a “chhaayaageet” song, best heard late at night when everyone is asleep.

Song-Sapnon ka chanda aaya (Mr X)(1957) Singer-Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-N Datta

Lyrics

sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laaya
taqdeer hamaari jaagi
rangeen zamaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laaya
taqdeer hamaari jaagi
rangeen zamaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya

nain kamal ki pyaas bujhi
aaj suhaagan raat saji
jhoom uthha neelam ka gagan
pyaar bhari shahnaai baji
shahnaai baji
rum jhum jhum paayal baaje
madhosh tamannaa naache
gaati hai aaj bahaaren
har phool deewaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laaya
taqdeer hamaari jaagi
rangeen zamaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya

man chaahe mehmaan ho tum
armaanon ki jaan ho tum
ab na tumhen jaane doongi
chaahat ka imaan ho tum
imaan ho tum
taaron ka dil bhi doley
ye raat nasheeli boley
o chor hamaare dil ke
ab tujh to paana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laaya
taqdeer hamaari jaagi
rangeen zamaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya

saamne aaya pyaar mera
rang bhara sansaar mera
dekh nayi manzil pe piya
aaj hua deedaar tera
deedaar tera
ab jaana nahin dil se
armaanon ki mehfil se
o chain churaane waale
kya roop suhaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laya
taqdeer hamaari jagi
rangeen zamaana hai

Blog Day : 3535 Post No. : 14200

Yesterday (22 march 2018), the blog was having a dot day till about 8 PM and then three articles were published just as the day was getting over, duly taking care of the “debutant” movie song as well as the YIPPEE movie for the day. Today (23 march 2018), we have had four songs discussed already, and that covers the “debutant” movie song as well as the YIPPEE movie.

But we are not done for the day. People have not noticed that we are onto another landmark. These days we mention the post number in the beginning of the post. The last article had its post number as 14199. So the next article has to be the net century post for the blog, viz post number 14200.

This century post occasion must be the most uneventful as well as the most underprepared century post. I was not sure about the song I was going to pick for the occasion till very late. I thought that I had chosen the song. But that song got changed in the afternoon. In the evening that song got changed again. This song, the 14200th song for the blog will appear at around 11 PM IST, after being finalised at about 8 PM ! In fact I discovered this song and heard it for the first time at 8 PM !

I had decided that this century post would cover a song penned by Kaifi Azmi. so the songs that I kept chosing and changing were all penned by Kaifi Azmi.

It was yesterday evening that I had decided on Kaifi Azmi as the artist to feature for the century song. So I began to research on the songs of Kaifi Azmi. I found, much to my surprise that the list of all songs penned by Kaifi Azmi is not available online, unlike the case for many other artists. Kaifi Azmi has an official site but I found that site a half hearted attempt and there I could not find what I was looking for.

So I spend my time from yesyterday evening till this evening compiling the list of all Kaifi Azmi songs that he has penned in HFM. I arrived at a figure of 351 songs from 88 movies. I was under the impression that Kaifi Azmi was on 199 in the blog and so I was hoping that this song would combine blog century will Kaifi Azmi’s 200th song in the blog. But I found that my earlier calcutaion was incorrect. Kaifi Azmi is on 189 and not quite 199. Nevertheless, now I have a fairly good idea about Kaifi Azmi’s output in Hindi movies.

I find that the music directors with whom Kaifi Azmi worked could be broadly categorised in two categories- First category was those who were lovers of urdu. Second category were those who did not have command over Hindi/ Urdu but they realised the value of a good lyricist.

In the first category, we have music directors like Madan Mohan, Ghulam Mohammad, Khayyam, Jaidev, A R Qureshy, Pt Lachchiram, O P Nayyar, Roshan etc etc. Kaifi Azmi worked with Madan Mohan in 14 movies, which is the highest number of movies for him with one music director. On the other end of the spectrum, he worked with Roshan and O P Nayyar in just one song each. The first song in the blog was sole Roshan composition that Kaifi Azmi penned. So this blog was starged with a rare song though it was not realised at that time. 🙂

The only O P Nayyar composition that was penned by Kaifi Azmi was the lilting title song of “Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi” (1966).

The other category of music directors with whom Kaifi Azmi was associated in HFM were those who had poor command over Hindi/ Urdu. They were mostly Bangla speakers. But what compositions they created with Kaifi Azmi. This category of music directors include names like S D Burman, Hemant Kumar, Kamal Mitra, Bappi Lahiri, Aparesh Lahiri, Robin, Kanu Roy, Dilip Roy etc.

For this occasion, I have chosen a song that must be regarded as a rare song on many counts. This song is a rare song per se, in the sense that I had not heard this song till now, even though this song was composed in 1970, when I as a precocious music loving kid would listen to all HFM that would get played on Radio, loudspeakers etc.

This song can also be desribed as rare because it is a club song as well as a Helen dance song. One does not associate Kaifi Azmi with a Helen dance song, but this song is very much a Helen dance song.

Though the song has dance by Helen, she does not do any lip syncing. The song is a male solo song. It is sung by Mahendra Kapoor, regarded uncharitably as poor man’s Rafi by some. The song is lip synced as a party song in Shammi Kapoor style. No, it is lip synced neither by Shammi Kapoor nor by Vishwajeet, whom many people rather uncharitably regarded as poor man’s Shammi Kapoor. the song is lip synced by Chandrashekhar who could well be described as a poor man’s Vishwajeet. That would make him poor man’s poor man’s Shammi Kapoor. 🙂 The song does have such self effacing lines as

dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar

The picturisation also shows some well known villains in attendance. K N Singh and Jeewan are present on the occasion. Jeewan seems to have understood every word of this heavy duty lyrics, going by his facial expression. 🙂

I got to listen to the song a few times in the process of noting down of the lyrics. I found the song growingon me. It is that kind of song.

So here is this unsung song as the rather unnoticed 14200th song in the blog. This century took a sedate 26 days. Hopefully we will pick up speed in the coming days and weeks.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support, good wishes and encouragement that keep fuelling this musical bandwagon. Let us hope that this bandwagon keep on rolling, like the mythical perpetual motion machine.


Song-Chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein (Daghabaaz)(1970) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Dilip Roy

Lyrics

chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
jaane kya raaz hai kyun ujaala nahin
chhed di maine dil ki ye baaten kahaan
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar
dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar
apne sar pe chita apni rakkhe huye
apne sar pe chita apni rakkhe huye
thokaren khaayin duniya ke aage hazaar
thokaren khaayin duniya ke aage hazaar
aur kisi ne bhi badhke sambhaala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

sar agar phodna hai to sar phod lo
saaya dhoondho na chaandi ki deewaar mein
sar agar phodna hai to sar phod lo
saaya dhoondho na chaandi ki deewaar mein
pyaar ka geet honthon tak aaya to thha
pyaar ka geet honthon tak aaya to thha
kho gaya aa ke sone ki jhankaar mein
kho gaya aa ke sone ki jhankaar mein
dard patthar ne seene mein paala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

raat dhalti rahi
jashn hota raha
raat dhalti rahi
jashn hota raha
log hanste rahe
koi rota raha
shukriya kis jubaan se ada keejiye
shukriya kis jubaan se ada keejiye
dil mein kaanta zamaana chubhota raha
dil mein kaanta zamaana chubhota raha
mujhko mahfil se lekin nikaala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
jaane kya raaz hai kyun ujaala nahin
chhed di maine dil ki ye baaten kahaan
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

Blog Day : 3521 Post No. : 14143

“Ajeeb Ladki” (1952) was directed by Mohammad Ehsan for Tajmahal Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Rehman, Naseem Bano, Cuckoo, Shashikala, Agha, Jayant, Shyam Kumar, Shakuntala, Samson, Kathana, Bakshi, A K Sagar, Munshi Munaqqa etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Seven songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Ajeeb Ladki” (1952) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Shamshad Begam and chorus. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Shamshad Begam’s voice appears in six out of ten songs of the movie, my guess is that she sang for the leading lady viz Naseem Bano. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Chupchaap chala ja door na ho magroor o chanda pyaare (Ajeeb Ladki)(1952) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad
Chorus

Lyrics

chupchaap chala ja door
na ho magroor
o chanda pyaare
o chanda pyaare
o o o
mere saajan ko jab dekhega
mar jaayega sharam ke maare
chanda pyaare
o chanda pyaare

ho o o
tujhe husn pe apne naaz hai
ho naaz hai
to hua kare main kya karoon
main kya karoon
tujhe husn pe apne naaz hai
to hua kare main kya karoon
meri duniya se tu door hai
zara neeche aa to jawaab doon
o jawaab doon
tere mukhde par hai daag laga
bedaag hai sainyya hamaare
o chanda pyaare
o o o
mere saajan ko jab dekhega
mar jaayega sharam ke maare
chanda pyaare
o chanda pyaare

o o o
tujhe kasam hai apne shikaar ki
o shikaar ki
mere piya ka roop bhi dekh le
o dekh le
tujhe kasam hai apne shikaar ki
mere piya ka roop bhi dekh le
barsaane waale chaandni
zara thhandi dhoop bhi dekh le
o dekh le
mere dil mein pyaar ki aag lagi
yoon door se kar na ishaare
o chanda pyaare
o o o
mere saajan ko jab dekhega
mar jaayega sharam ke maare
chaanda pyaare
o chanda pyaare

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
