There are lots of cricket loving people, including some regulars of this blog who may be looking forward to be beginning of IPL 2018 later tonight. This song, which was created 61 years ago, sounds like an appropriate song for the occasion. 🙂

With this song, “Mr X”(1957) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


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

“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

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 o o

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

“Sant Raghu”(1957) was produced by M K Kapadiya and directed by Chandrakant for Kanak Productions, Bombay. This “bhakti pradhan” movie had Nirupa Roy, Anand Kumar, Ulhas, Bipin Gupta, Lalita Pawar, S N Tripathi, Manorama, Babu Raje, Tuntun, Maujoo, Radheshyam, Bhagwan Sinha, R S Dubey, Champak Laala, Sheila Vaz, Rajkumar, Amrit etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it that had the voices of as many as six singers in them.

One song from the movie has been covered in the blog and that song had the voices of Lata and Talat Mehmood. Here is the second song from “Sant Raghu”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

The song is about a lady missing her beloved in a moonlit light. So it is a “missing the beloved” as well as a “chaayaageet” genre of song, which is best sung and heard at night time. That is why the writeup of this song is being posted at chhaayaageet time. 🙂

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


Song-Neel gagan mein chanda chamke (Sant Raghu)(1957) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

aaja re ae
ab to aa jaa aa
mera dil
tere dil ko pukaare
dil se dil ko milaa jaa

neel gagan mein chanda chamke
rut aayi singaar ki
sapan suhaana tod na jaana
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki ee
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki

chhail chhabeeli
rut rangeeli
ham ko kare ishaare
chhail chhabeeli
rut rangeeli
ham ko kare ishaare
aaj miley to kabhi na bichhde
kabhi na howe nyaare
ankhiyaan phhadke
jiyara dhhadke
beete na raat bahaar ki
sapan suhaana tod na jaana
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki ee
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki

ik dil tera
ik dil mera
aur ye samaa suhaana
ik dil tera
ik dil mera
aur ye samaa suhaana
tera dil hai shama ki lau to
mera dil parwaana
gup chup rehna
kuchh nahin kehna
nazar lage na sansaar ki
sapan suhaana tod na jaana
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki ee
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki

The movie had 11 songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from ‘Pardesi Mehmaan’ (1948) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Husn Bano. Pt Indra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Husn Bano’s name is there in the cast, it can be assumed that the song is picturised on herself.

Missing Films of 1960s – 52
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

A bit of a coincidence here that the song of this series posted yesterday “O Chanda. . . Aaj Ki Raat Na Dhalna”, and today’s next song in this series, both are ‘chaand’ songs. Yesterday’s song got posted early in the morning, and later I was thinking – posting a ‘chaand’ song at sunrise time is wholly inappropriate. And so, today’s ‘chaand’ song I am bringing to you at an appropriate time in the evening – a waxing moon is in the skies.

Today’s film is ‘Bharat Milap’ from 1965. The film was produced under the banner of KP Productiond, Bombay, and the director’s name is Babubhai Mistry. The cast of actors includes Sohrab Modi, Sulochana, Ashish Kumar, Indrani Mukherjee, Leela Misra, Anand Kumar, and Mridula amongst others.

The film has seven songs, all from the pen of Bharat Vyas. Music is by Vasant Desai. Today’s song is a duet in the voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor. Unless I am mistaken, the actors performing this song on screen are Ashish Kumar and Indrani Mukherjee. I request other knowledgeable readers to correct me in case I am in error.

The storyline of the epic ‘Ramayan’ is quite well known. After Shri Ram departs from Ayodhya to spend fourteen years as an ascetic in the woods, Bharat ji makes one attempt to bring him back. He goes to meet him at Chitrakoot. The entire portrayal in this epic is a guidance for the right things to do in life. The meeting at Chitrakoot is very significant. The various dialogues that happen here are so full of deep learnings for mortal humans, on how to conduct themselves in real life. The decision at this juncture is that Bharat ji will return to Ayodhya, and continue look after the administration of the kingdom, and take care of the family and the people. Shri Ram along with Sita ji and Lakshman ji will continue his stay away from Ayodhya, till the specified time.

Bharat ji returns with the ‘charan paduka’ (sandals) of Shri Ram, and places them on the throne of Ayodhya. And he places himself on the ground next to the throne, while administering the kingdom, asking for inspiration and guidance at every step, from the ‘charan paduka’. He further resolves that he will not stay in the palace, for the duration that Shri Ram is traveling in the woods. He also has a hut made for himself in a small village, Nandigram, next to Ayodhya, and stays there only. Even inside the hut, he does not sleep on the ground. He digs a cavity or a trench in the ground, a couple of feet deep, and he sleeps at that level. He says he will not sleep on the same ground on which Shri Ram is walking bare footed for fourteen years. He forsakes all the comforts and luxuries, and also all the pleasures and shared nearness in his own personal life. His spouse, Mandavi, stays in the palaces, but they do not share any proximity.

The tale and the teachings of ‘Ramayan’ are the best examples of personal sacrifices that individuals make for the sake of their dear ones, and for the sake of moral and uprightness in life. I may be digressing here, but I would like to briefly tell about the role of Shatrughan, the youngest of the four brothers, in these complex circumstances.

It is stated that Lakshman ji had taken a vow that he would not sleep for all the time that Shri Ram is away from home, and that he would always be standing guard for the safety and well being of his elder brother and bhabhi (sister in law). What is not well known is that even Shatrughan ji followed a similar stringent regime. All during the day, he would be assisting Bharat ji with the matters of the kingdom. And in the night, he would make one round of the kingdom, and then come and sit on a stone at the gates of the kingdom, keeping vigil, till dawn.

Taken in the right spirit, this tale is the pinnacle of a visionary and inspirational lesson. To keep the honor of a promise, all the four brothers make unparalleled sacrifices. One leaves home with the resolve to live like an ascetic in the woods, for fourteen years. Another resolves to accompany him to secure the comfort and safety of his elder brother, forsaking even sleep. The third brother declines to sit on the throne, gives up his own comforts and resolves to also live like an ascetic for the same period, albeit in his own kingdom. He also resolves to sleep in a pit below the ground, and not on the ground on which his elder brother walks barefoot. And the fourth brother, also forsakes his comforts, and sleep, keeping vigil over a kingdom which all acknowledge belongs to the eldest brother. All the four brothers forsook family life for the duration of this exile. A tale like this has no parallels anywhere in the annals of world history or literature.

This is a wonderfully crafted song, that is simultaneously moving at two levels. Both the levels are expressions of love. But one level is expressing love for a beloved spouse, and at the other level, the love being expressed is for a beloved elder brother. The expression of love in the second level is amounting to love for God Himself. Mandvi, the wife of Bharat ji, is calling out to her husband, expressing her emotions of missing him, and feeling incomplete within herself. Bharat ji is singing the same song at the same time, only that his call is directed towards Shri Ram, reminding Him that his (Bharat ji’s) life is in a precarious balance, if He does not return on time, as promised.

A lovely melody created by Vasant Desai, and a memorable song this one is.

Lyrics

chandrama ja un se keh de
na bano itne kathor
baat takte ho gai
geeli mere palkan ki kor
chandrama ja un se keh de
na bano itne kathor
baat takte ho gai
geeli mere palkan ki kor
chandrama ja un se keh de

kehna tujh bin adhkhila
maathe ka tika hai
kehna tujh bin ye mera
sansaar pheeka hai
oo oo oo
chandrama ja un se keh de

kehna ab na seh sakoongi
vireh ki jwaala..aa
toot jaaye na kahin
meri saans ki maala
oo oo oo
chandrama ja un se keh de

ye basanti raat kaate se
nahin kat’ti
ye ghadi nishthur
ghadi bhar bhi nahin ghat’ti
un charan ki raah mein
ye nain bhatke hain
un ke darshan ke liye
ye praan atke hain

oo oo oo
chandrama ja un se keh de
na bano itne kathor
baat takte ho gai
geeli mere palkan ki kor
chandrama ja un se keh de

चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे
ना बनो इतने कठोर
बाट तकते हो गई
गीली मेरे पलकन की कोर
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे
ना बनो इतने कठोर
बाट तकते हो गई
गीली मेरे पलकन की कोर
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे

कहना तुझ बिन अधखिला
माथे का टीका है
कहना तुझ बिन ये मेरा
संसार फीका है
ओ ओ ओ
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे

कहना अब ना सेह सकूँगी
विरह की ज्वाला॰॰आ
टूट जाये ना कहीं
मेरी सांस की माला
ओ ओ ओ
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे

ये बसंती रात
काटे से नहीं कटती
ये घड़ी निष्ठुर
घड़ी भर नहीं घटती
उन चरण की राह में
ये नैन भटके हैं
उनके दर्शन के लिए
ये प्राण अटके हैं

ओ ओ ओ
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे
ना बनो इतने कठोर
बाट तकते हो गई
गीली मेरे पलकन की कोर
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे

Missing Films of 1960s – 51
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is not just a song that I should be concerned about. It is the entire film that I am surprised, has missed the attention of the team members of this blog. And not that the film is the issue. It is the songs that I wonder about. And just the category – ‘How come I missed this song’, will not suffice. Maybe another category that says – ‘How come we all missed this movie’.

The film that I am talking about is ‘Mahabharat’ from 1965. And I am sure you will be asking me – why? Another quite obscure film from the 1960s, as obscure as they come. But the songs, I am sure are going to turn out to be very familiar, most of them are favorites from radio listening days. Just sample these

  • “Champa Kali Chhup Chhup Jaaye Re”
  • “Ta Na Na Dir Dir Deem, Deem Ta Dere Na”
  • “Hari Hari Dharti Hai Neela Gagan”
  • “Sakhi Ri Baaje Mann Ki Baansuriya”

And today’s debut song, which is not the least of these – “O Chanda. . . Aaj Ki Raat Na Dhalna”. This film is such treasure of wonderful songs, all of them available online. And yet, this film has taken all this time to make its debut here.

The film is produced under the banner of AG Films, Bombay and is directed by Babubhai Mistry. The star cast is impressive and includes Pradeep Kumar, Padmini, Dara Singh, Abhi Bhattacharya, Jeevan, Ambika, Manhar Desai, Tiwari, Anoop Kumar, Maruti, and Achla Sachdev amongst others. Song list in Geet Kosh contains 9 songs. All the songs are from the pen of Bharat Vyas. And the music direction – it is Chitragupt.

Today’s debut song is a duet sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor. The lilting melody, a dream song – it is such a dear memory from the past. The words, the music and the rendition – all three come together to create this masterpiece. A must listen for the lovers of music and songs of 1950s and 1960s. Enjoy.

Song – O Chanda. . . Aaj Ki Raat Na Dhalna  (Mahabharat) (1965) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Chitragupt

kitna aaj bhala lagta hai
chalna aur machalna..aa..aa

Blog Day : 3469 Post No. : 13928

The New Year according to Gregorian Calendar started 16 days ago on 1 january 2018. Like most people, we too made new year resolutions. Unlike most people, our new year resolutions of posting one “debutant” song and one “YIPPEE” song daily is still being followed regularly.

Day before yesterday (14 january 2018) was Makar Sakranti and that marked the beginning of another new year, viz Hindu new year. Why we should not make new year resolutions on this occasion as well. In our case, we can resolve to continue our new year resolutions of Gregorian calendar new year. 🙂

The commencement of Hindu new year coincided with the blog clocking one crore (ten millions) visitors to the blog. Is it a coincidence that it happened on this day ! Or is it divine scheme of things. The blog began just under ten years ago on 19 july 2008. Why this date and no other day ? It was much later (in fact only in 2017) that I realised that the Hindu month of Shrawan had started on 19 july 2008, which traditionally provided the most number of songs to HFM. So, I feel that the same divine scheme of things were being played out and implemented at that time as well.

That is not all. Much later, we posted out song post number 11111, which discussed a special song that had voices of four legendary singers. When Sudhir Ji, the author of that wrteup looked back at the blog posts number 1, 11, 111 and 1111, he discovered an amazing pattern. These four songs were solo songs sung by the same four singers, and in the same order in which they lend their voices in the song post number 11111 !

That is not all. I have noticed coincidences involving me that are even more amazing, and they are not limited to this blog. I have shared one amazing coincidence with my friends (including some in this blog as well) that will convince people that these coincidences are some grander scheme of things planned by higher forces. 🙂

Coming to my observations that we need to reiterate our new year resolutions (Gregorian calender version) on new year (Hindu calender version) as well. On the first day of this year (viz Yesterday 15 january 2018), only the first half of the half the resolution (viz posting a debutant song for the day) was fulfilled till late in the night. Sudhir Ji had posted a “debutant” post for the day. I had noticed that he had planned for a “YIPPEE” post as well. But seeing that the “debutant” post had appeared so late, I was afraid that it might become a race against time to fully fulfil the new year resolution. So I decided to lend a helping hand to Sudhir Ji. I prepared this “YIPPEE” writeup and I decided to post it in case Sudhir Ji was strapped for time (which he certainly is these days).

Fortunately, I found that Sudhir Ji succeeded in posting the YIPPEE writeup just in the nick of time yesterday night, and it was that rollicking title song of “China Town”(1962), viz. Rangeen bahaaron se hai gulzaar China Town.

So the song that I had kept as the backup YIPPEE song was not required.

Today (16 january 2018), we find ourself in the same situation as yesterday. The “debutant” movie of the day was done and dusted with first thing in the morning by Sudhir Ji. Sudhir Ji then asked me for the list of YIPPiable movies, aiming to post the YIPPEE movie of today as well, while I concentrated on the O P Nayyar tribute post.

After the O P Nayyar tribute post was published late, I found that Sudhir Ji has prepared for the YIPPEE song of the day, and it was a song that was not available online as far as I can tell. But like last night, we are against racing against time and I do not find Sudhir Ji at the keyboard right now. So I feel that I need to step in and publish the backup YIPPEE song that I had prepared yesterday. That way, Sudhir Ji can publish his YIPPEE article on the next day.

The song that I have in mind is from “Khazaana”(1951). It is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

This song, the eighth and final song from “Khazaana”(1951) is a “joie de vivre” song sung on a moonlit night by a lady in love. This must have been the brief by the music director to the lyricist and what superb lyrics Rajinder Krishan comes up with. And the rendering of this song is divine. After listening to the honey like voice of Lata, I would not like to listen to this voice in any other voice. This is inspired singing at its peak.

“Khazaana”(1951) was produced by Bakshi Jang Bahadur and directed by M Sadiq for Bakshi Brothers, Bombay. This movie had Madhubala, Nasir Khan, Gope, Om Prakash, Cuckoo, Ramesh Thakur, Gujri, Abbas etc. in it.

So going by the cast, it is clear that this song was picturised on Madhubala. Lata singing and Madhubala lip syncing. It would have been a sight for the eyes if the video was available. But it seems that only the audio of this song is available and that too has ended up becoming an obscure song with time. The song deserves to be much better known among music lovers. It is an archtypical “chhaayaageet” song, best heard at night time, with majority of people fast asleep in the comforts of their “razaai”. 🙂

With this song, “Khazaana”(1951) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Birhan”(1948) was directed by Kailash Bhandari for National Film Producers, Bombay. The movie had Roopa, Pran, Begam Parveen, Gul Zamaan, Ram Lal, Zaheer, Nafees Begam, Krishna Rane, Cuckkoo etc in it.

The movie had twelve songs in it that were penned by two lyricists vz. Bekal and Sarshar Sailaani but the distribution of songs among the two is not known.

Three songs from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Birhan”(1948) to appear in the blog. HFGK is slent about the singers of the song. The uploader mentions the singers as Dilshad Begam and Trilok Kapoor (singer). Lyricist is not known. Music is composed by Pt Lachchiram.

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