atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Chhidi ladaayi bhaari re chal chalam chal challam chal

Posted on: June 30, 2010


The revised writeup of this song is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie songs and a regular contributor to this song.

As one looks back on the history of cinema, one finds that even the main line actors who are considered A grade, and the movies sell by their name, also end up acting in movies that are obscure and did not catch the attention at the box office. This movie, Ek Ka Baad Ek, from 1960, is one such movie of Dev Anand. By the time this movie was released, Dev Anand was an established and expensive star with a huge number of hits from the 1950s behind him. Then in 1960, he acted in this movie whose rest of the star cast included Sharda, Heeralal, Tarla, Prabhu Dayal, SK Prem, Radha Kishen, Madhu Apte, Ravi Kant etc. The actress Sharda mentioned here is the elder sister of actor Vinod Mehra, who made his mark on the screen about a decade and a half later. From the memoriam message displayed at the beginning of the movie, this is the last movie that the great actor Radhakishen appeared in. In fact this movie is produced by his son but unfortunately, Radhakishen himself could not live long enough to see its release.

The movie was probably the first of the mainline movies that tried to tackle the issue of population growth, and promoted family planning. Maybe this could be the reason that this movie did not do well at the box office i.e. trying to project a serious and a delicate message in a movie that had the other trappings of formula films. But still, it was a commendable effort, and having a mainline actor such as Dev Anand to be associated with such a venture and with such stars, was almost a casting coup in those days.

The story revolves around a family of two brothers in a small town. The elder brother Mangal (played by the actor Prahu Dayal) has five children with a sixth on the way. His wife (played by actress Tarla) does not keep good health, for obvious reasons. Prakash (Dev Anand) is the younger brother, who studies in college. The economic and domestic situation of the family is not good, and there is another child on the way. The elder brother’s wife passes away during next childbirth. There is dejection in the household, and the children are not well looked after for some days. Then Dev Anand playing the good uncle, brings toys and sweets for the children to change their mood and make them happy. Sharda, who is his childhood sweetheart, joins with him in this effort. I am not able to place the young man who plays the bandmaster’s assistant to Dev Anand in this song.

This movie had some good songs, given the fact that the lyrics for the movie are written by Kaifi Azmi, and the composition is by SD Burman. It is a great combination to generate some very good music. This song is a playful song for children, and the words are really very imaginative, and reflect the kind of thoughts that small kids have, e.g. “haathi saare baandh diye, nanhi chiyunti ke par mein”. There is a very interesting use of cartoon animations in this song, that speaks of some pioneering technical innovations back then in 1960. And of course, Dev Anand also has some thoughts for himself, and he sings about landing in the home of a fairy with the help of a parachute of balloons, and the animation at this time in the song shows what is going on in his mind. :).

Get back to your childhood days, and enjoy this melodious fun song for children, that is sung by Mohammed Rafi.


Song-Chhidi ladaayi bhaari re chal chalam chal challam chal (Ek Ke Baad Ek) (1960) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

chali ye fauz hamaari re
chal chalam chal challam chal

chhidi ladaayi bhaari re
chal chalam chal challam chal

chali ye fauz hamaari re
chal chalam chal challam chal
chhidi ladaayi bhaari re
chal chalam chal challam chal
chali ye fauz hamaari re
chal chalam chal challam chal
chhidi ladaayi bhaari re
chal chalam chal challam chal

vardi pahni choohon ne
mendhak band bajaate hain
vardi pahni choohon ne
mendhak band bajaate hain
titli terath par baithe
ladne bhidne jaate hain
har kadam par Chunnoo Munnoo mithaayi khaate hain
chali ye fauz hamaari re
chal chalam chal challam chal
chhidi ladaayi bhaari re
chal chalam chal challam chal

haathi saare baandh diye
nanhi chyunti ke par mein
haathi saare baandh diye
nanhi chyunti ke par mein
baloonon ki chhatri se
utre pariyon ke ghar mein
phir kisi ko pakdaa
jakdaa kisi ko pal bhar mein
chali ye fauz hamaari re
chal chalam chal challam chal
chhidi ladaayi bhaari re
chal chalam chal challam chal

abse murgi paalegi
bachche kaali billi ke
abse murgi paalegi
bachche kaali billi ke
ladna bhidnaa baat buri
kahen sayaane Dilli ke
kyun wo goli khaayen
paayen jo laddoo tilli ke
chhidi ladaayi bhaari re
tal talatam tallam tal
chali ye fauz hamari re
chal chalam chal challam chal

Oh wow–if I was a kid I would like this the best simply because of the animations. I never liked any of the children songs as a child but this one really is for children–the others are about children and really for grown-ups.

Really , I liked it very much. Thanks
