atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Main to chala jidhar chale rasta

Posted on: November 3, 2008


Wow ! This was a song that I liked very much those days, before I forgot all about it since the song stopped playing on radio and loudspeakers. And now I have listened to this song once again after some 35 years.

What a song. I knew nothing about this song other than the fact that it was sung by Kishore Kumar. In those days, that detail was enough. I had guessed, based on the racy tune that the music must be R D Burman’s. Now that I have details of the song ( thanks to Raja’s farmaish), and I know that the movie was Dhadkan featuring Sanjay Khan.

The music director was not at all R D Burman but it was Ravi. Those days, music directors needed to act as R D Burman clone to survive. And I must say that this tune sounds so much like R D Burman. And the lyrics were written not by Anand Bakshi or Majrooh, but by Prem Dhawan.

It is a very racy number, one that should make people feel like dancing. The picturisation shows a few people dancing ( twisting) clumsily. But those days, this kind of dance was the in thing with the happening crowd. Our hero is holding a wooden badminton racket and going somewhere ( to a badminton court, perhaps ?) and singing this song en route.

It is a real feel good song that is sure to cheer up the listeners. And I am so pleased that I got reacquainted with a long forgotten song that should never have been forgotten by me in the first place. It was one of the most loved song for me those days. And I heartily thank Raja for reminding me of this song.

Song- Main to chala jidhar chale rasta ( Dhadkan) 1972) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics- Prem Dhawan, MD- Ravi

Lyrics

main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa
main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa
mujhe kyaa khabar hai kahaan merii manzil
hogaa koyi meraa bhi saathi
hogaa koyi meraa bhi saathi
hogi kahin to meri bhi mahfil
main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa
main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa

ye husn-o-ishq kaa jahaan
ye shokiyaan ye mastiyaan
ye parvaton ke qaafile
ye baadalon ki toliyaan
poochhti hain mujhse
tu chalaa hai kidhar
kidhar
kidhar
main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa
main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa
mujhe kyaa khabar hai kahaan meri manzil
main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa
main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa

mujhko ishq bahaaron se
in rangeen nazaaron se
maine chalnaa seekhaa hai
dariyaa ke bahte dhaaron se
ye gungunaati waadiyaan
ye phoolon bhari daaliyaan
taaj pahne barf kaa ye jagmagaati chotiyaan
poochhtin hain mujhse
tu chalaa hai kidhar
kidhar
kidhar
main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa
main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa
mujhe kyaa khabar hai kahaan meri manzil
hoga koi mera bhi sathi
hoga koi mera bhi sathi
hogi kahin to meri bhi mahfil
main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa
main to chalaa jidhar chale rastaa
lalalala lalla
he he he he ha ha ha ha

Thanks so much, Atul, for putting this up.
It is indeed a feel-good song which I remember very well from my childhood days.
I remember seeing this movie Dhadkan at that time – and I liked it a lot. A sort of murder/revenge story like Om Shanti Om – but much nicer. You should see it if you get a chance.

Indeed I should watch this movie. Who knows, I may well have its VCD lying somewhere.

Awesome song!! Thanks for posting it.

I realise that there are so many songs that I remember only after hearing it on your blog. Thanks ever so much Atul, you are awesome! You bring back all memories of my growing up years.
