atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Main to bhool chali babul ka des

Posted on: January 28, 2009


“Saraswati Chandra” is not a movie that too many people remember now. This lead actors in this movie were Nutan and Manish (who ?) and it was a Black and white movie in an era when colour movies had become the vogue.

The movie itself created no ripples, but its songs certainly did. It had one memorable song after another appearing in the movie at regular intervals while one watched the movie, which few people did.

This particular song “main to bhool chali babul ka desh pitya ka ghar pyaara lage” is a song based on the folk dance of Gujarat.

Lata has sung the lyrics of Indeewar beautifully. Listening to this song is enough to visualise that the singers must be performing a joyous folk dance, and that is what it turns out to be when one watches the picturisation.

It is a wonderful folk song based song which has been picturised nicely too. This must have been one of first occasions when Bolywood movie watchers must have been exposed to this folk dance of Gujarat.

I have listened to this song/ watched its picturisation a few times today, and I am still dazed at the wonderful song /dance.


Song-Main to bhool chali babul ka desh piya ka ghar pyaara lage (Saraswati Chandra) (1968 ) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

ho main to bhool chali babul ka desh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage
ho main to bhool chali babul ka desh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage
koyi maike ko de do sandesh
jaake maike ko de do sandesh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage
ho main to bhool chali babul ka desh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage

nanadi me dekhi hai bahna ki soorat
nanadi me dekhi hai bahna ki soorat
sasuji meri hai mamta ki moorat
sasuji meri hai mamta ki moorat
ho pita jaisa
ho pita jaisa sasurji ka bhes
piya ka ghar pyaara lage
ho main to bhool chali babul ka desh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage
koyi maike ko de do sandesh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage

chanda bhi pyaara hai sooraj bhi pyaara
chanda bhi pyaara hai sooraj bhi pyaara
par sabse pyaara hai sajna hamara
par sabse pyaara hai sajna hamara
ho aankhe samjhe
ho aankhe samjhe jiya ka sandesh
piya ka ghar pyara lage
ho main to bhool chali babul ka desh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage
koyi maike ko de do sandesh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage

baitha rahe sainya naino ko jode
baitha rahe sainya naino ko jode
ik pal akela wo mujhko na chhode
ik pal akela wo mujhko na chhode
ho nahi koi
ho nahi koi jiya ko kalesh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage
ho main to bhool chali babul ka desh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage
koyi maike ko de do sandesh
jaake maike ko de do sandesh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage
ho main to bhool chali babul ka desh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage
koyi maike ko de do sandesh
piya ka ghar pyaara lage

All the last few songs show what a treasury Hindi cinema has been in terms of music. A blessing to the mind!

For all our present output (and I count ARR as a genius), it is going to be difficult to equate such a prodigious amount of sheer genius: in voice, music and poetry (lyrics) produced in these decades.

Ek se badh kar ek….

One word. Nutan.
OK, I am partial to Nutan.
I can sit through any Nutan movie – whoever the rest of the cast is.
Regardless of what the storyline is.
She was just such a good actress.

Saraswatichandra has of course very good songs. This particular song is a standard “garba dance” song. Takes me back to my days in Mumbai in the mid-80s. :-)

I love this song.
This is perfect for DANDIYA SONG.

This is in fact a Dandiya song.

i love the song, movie and the actors.. also i like your review.

I can see that if Raja and I knew each other in the 80s, we would have had a fight over Nutan ;).

I would like to beg to differ on the above review.

The movie was a big hit and was based on Saraswatichandra, a landmark Gujarati novel, by Govardhanram Madhavram Tripathi, a famous author of early twentieth century Gujarat, …
The novel, written in five parts, narrates the lifestyle and ideology of people in the early 20th century. It depicts the social fabric of that time: extended family life, the value system, customs and traditions. It speaks about ideals, sacrifice, duty and love that transcends desires or physical needs.
The last part of novel is extremely philosophical and created ripples in the intelligentsia of those times.
The novel got rave reviews and is highly acclaimed and is being studied in literature subject.(Gujarati)
The movie got 3-4 national awards and a few filmfare awards.

At times (in fact most of the times) I feel sorry for the new generation who have not seen the old movies, the black and white movies that are gems. They are missing the classique part of Indian culture, music, ideologies, values, creativity…
And when the reviews are not in corresponding with the facts, I do get a little disturbed.
So kindly pardon me if my mails come out to be a little strong.

I am of the generation that grew up in 1970s. Movies of 1960s were before my time. In any case, these days I do not feel like watching movies, unlike how it was with me in my younger days. So I often depend on my knowledgeable readers to give me the background information about movies which most of us may not be aware of.

Maya ji /Atul ji,

SARASWATICHANDRA( 1968) was a movie based loosely on the famous Gujarati Novel by the literary giant of Gujarat,G.M.Tripathi(20-10-1855 to 4-1-1907).He was such a poular writer that 1885 to 1915 period is called Goverdhan Yug in Gujarati Literature.
The actual novel was written and published from 1887 to 1901 in 5 parts.
It is ironical that contrary to his progressive reformism,Tripathi was against widow marriage and hence in his novel,there was no marriage between Hero and Heroine,even when her earlier husband dies.
Saraswati chandra was the last Black and White film of Bombay filmdom.
The film was not a runaway success nor it created any records,despite excellent acting by Nutan.
In 1969,it got National awards for CINEMATOGRAPHY and BEST MUSIC(Kalyanji Anand ji).It received ONLY ONE FILMFARE Award for Best Dialogues(Ali Raza),contrary to beliefs that it got many awards.
It’s best known and most popular song ‘Main to bhool chali” isNOT THE FIRST GARBA STYLE song/dance in Indian cinema.This honour goes to ‘KANHA BAJAYE BANSURI AUR….’ by Lata and chorus in film NASTIK (1954),Music Director-C.Ramchandra.
It is only since late 90s onwards,when Garba Dance started getting organised on large scale in various cities in India,the popularity of ‘Main to Bhool chali’ increased many folds.
I think,basically,this is a blog discussing Music and its aspects.The other information,comments etc are additional inputs for which,fortunately now there is a battery of writers available.This blog has always given free hand to comment writers,as they provide other informations like,story,trivia,anecdotes,information on Actors etc. supplimenting the songs.
I believe,one can enjoy the song more if he knows the situation or the story part responsible for the song.

Thanks for this additional information. People of Non Gujrat background may not have the knowledge of the novel and the novelist G M Tripathi, on whose novel this movie is based.

While writing about the Nastik song , Kanha bayaaye bansari (Nastik), I had mentioned that this was the first ever Garba dance song in Hindi movies. :)
