Chandni Raaten : Song No. 4
———————————

chaand aahen bharegaa phool dil thhaam lenge
husn ki baat chali to sab teraa naam lenge

chand phir nikla magar tum na aaye
jalaa phir mera dil karoon kya main haaye

dheere dheere chal chaand gagan mein
kahin dhal na jaaye raat toot na jaayen sapne
arey dheere dheere chal chaand gagan mein

khoya khoya chaand khula aasmaan
aankhon mein saari raat jaayegi
ham ko bhi kaise need aayegi ho oo

Gyan Mukherji was the producer and the star cast had Ashok Kumar, Mumtaz Shanti, Shah Nawaz, Moti, P.F.Pithawala, Prahlad, Harun, Mubarak etc. This movie was India’s first multi starrer movie and also the most successful movie of those days.

“Kismat” (1943) has the distinction of being India’s most successful movie at the box office (it ran for three years at one movie hall) before its record was broken by “Sholay” (1975) (it ran for five years in one movie hall). “Kismat” (1943) really must have caught the imagination of the public at that time. And its music definitely played a big role in bringing movie watchers to the movie halls.

Though Deewali is one of the most important festivals in India, Hindi movies do not have adequate number of Deewali songs in them. This is in sharp contrast to the songs for another major Indian festival, viz Holi. There are many more “Holi” songs than we have “Deewali” songs.

I am aware of the better known songs of “Kismat” (1968) and I have posted those songs (four of them). But even the less known songs from movies of that era were nice songs to listen to.

There are several patriotic songs in Hindi movies. Most of these songs were created after independence, when India had already acquired independence. Creating patriotic songs in an independent nation is easy, but just imagine the case when India was not yet an independent nation.
