atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Baba man ki aankhen khol

Posted on: March 21, 2009


“Dhoop Chaaon” (1935) was a milestone movie for Bollywood. It was the first movie where playback singing was used, though it was not the same as playback singing as it is known today. It then only meant that the actor could concentrate on acting during picturisation and he would get the song recorded earlier or later. The actor himself/ herself needed to sing of course.

This song sung ( and acted) by K C Dey, a blind singer and uncle of Manna Dey is a very fine song to listen to. Considering the lack of sophistication in recording technology at that time, the voice quality as well as the calibre of recording personnel must be of a very high order to get this quality.

I am simply bowled over by the singing of K C Dey in this song.

Incidentally, K C Dey had sung another fantastic song in this movie which I will post soon too.


Song-baba man ki aankhen khol (Dhoop Chhaaon) (1935) Singer-K C Dey, Lyrics-Pt Sudarshan, MD-R C Boral

Lyrics

baba man ki aankhen khol
baba man ki aankhen khol
baba man ki aankhen khol
baba man ki aankhen khol
baba man ki aankhen khol

duniya kyaa hai ek tamaasha
chaar dinon ki jhoothi aasha
duniya kyaa hai ek tamaasha
chaar dinon ki jhoothi aasha
pal me tola pal me maasha
pal me tola pal me maasha
gyaan tarazu leke hath mea
tol sake to tol
gyaan tarazu leke hath mea
tol sake to tol
baba man ki ankhen khol

gala kitna pyaara hai
itna acha gaana kabhi suna hai
kaisi dard bhari aawaaz hai

matlab ki sab duniyadaari
matlab ki sab duniyadaari
matlab ke sab hain sansaari
matlab ki sab duniyadaari
matlab ke sab hain sansaari
jag me tera wo hitkaari
jag me tera wo hitkaari
tanman ka sab zor lagaakar
naam hari ka bol
tanman ka sab zor lagaakar
naam hari ka bol
baba man ki aankhen khol
baba man ki aankhen khol

Ooh this is a rare gem :) Thanks!

:) Can you give the english translation for the lyrics, what does it mean??

What a naturally powerful voice, he did not require any musical instruments or corrections to bring out this effect. Such were the gems we had in our glorious past. He was Guru to Mr Manna Deyji.

Raaarrara wants to the translated this song in English.
Here is my effort.
Baba means a singing saint is cautioning the listeners
who is telling that the world is not stable and it is full of people who are not reliable. Therefore he is guiding that one should listen to the innervoice , the God sitting inside the heart of every one of us. This life is very prescious should be utilised with care and in the service of God.
Ravinder Nath Watts ( Pandit Vats)

I had heard this song on my 78 RPM record but watching a video of the song was great. Rana

Old is good, no no no old is better, no no the best
