atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Cycle pe haseenon ki toli

Posted on: October 5, 2012


This article is written by Sudhir,a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Arun ji made a debut earlier this week, with his first post not only on this blog, but also on Harvey Pam’s blog. On Harvey’s blog, he posted his selection of top 10 cycle songs from Hindi films. The selection is very interesting and endearing. And the icing on the cake is the huge list of comments that followed this post, with no less than 19 more songs suggested by other readers, to add to the list of top 10 that Arun ji has posted.

Here is the one cycle song that has not yet appeared in the comments. A song that I remember hearing as a school child. It used to play occasionally on the radio in the mid to late seventies, but then it stopped appearing. The music, the rhythm created by Ravi, and the verve in the singing voices of Rafi, Manna Da, and Asha Bhosle, has kept this song very much alive in my memory. And more than anything else, it is the naughty words penned by Sahir that will definitely capture the imagination. A song that befits the chhed-chhaad approach of college boys, as they pursue the girls, trying to capture some attention and to get a reaction.

‘Amaanat’ (1975) is one of the films of Sadhna that suffered a delayed release on account of her health problems. The film had been in the making for some years before it finally saw the light of the projectors in the cinema halls. The story of this film is a variation on the standard lost and found theme. The happy family life of Balraj Sahni, Achla Sachdev and their infant son (to grow up as Manoj Kumar), suffers a domestic crisis. Blamed for a crime that probably happens as an accident, Balraj Sahni absconds, leaving behind his wife and child at the mercy of moneylenders. He boards a train, where on he meets with another family, Krishan Dhawan, his wife and an infant girl child (to grow up as Sadhna). Providence engineers another disaster, and a train accident happens. The girl child is separated from her parents, who are nowhere to be found, and Balraj Sahni picks her up and moves on. By this time, I am sure, the readers would have guessed the rest of the story easily. Time passes, children grow up, families move and the lead pair is now studying in the same city. The expected attraction happens, the confusion about the identities follows, and after some twists and turns, the secrets are unraveled to make way for a happy ending.

The film is produced and directed by Shatrujit Pal under the banner of Shatrujit Films, Bombay. The star cast is impressive and includes Manoj Kumar, Sadhna, Mehmood, Balraj Sahni, Rehman, Dhiraj, Achala Sachdev, Shashikala, Aruna Irani, Krishna Dhawan, Asit Sen, Brahm Bhardwaj, Praveen Pal, Mukri, Birbal, Tuntun, Devyani, Dilip Dutt, Keshto Mukherjee etc. The film boasts of some very popular songs, coming from the pen of Sahir Ludhianvi and composed for by Ravi. Four songs of this film are already present on this blog, “Bujhe Bujhe Rang Hain Nazaaron Ke”, “Teri Jawaani, Taptaa Maheena”, “Door Reh Kar Na Karo Baat Kareeb Aa Jaao” and “Matlab Nikal Gayaa Hai To Pehchaante Nahin”. Each one of them is a gem in its own right.

Here is the fifth song from this film, a cycle song, a song of teasing, a song of argument between the genders, and a song typified with the use of English words in every line. The leading ‘mukhdaa’ is the most naughty part of this song, with words that are daringly close to indelicacy and impropriety. Nonetheless, the song still made it to the radio waves. But of course it was not able to make a popularity dent in the minds of college kids, for the film came too late for its time. ‘Bobby’ had already happened two years earlier, and the image of Chintu Baba (Rishi Kapoor) zooming away on the new Escorts GTS model, with a very cute and desirable Dimple entwined with him on the passenger seat, nibbling his ear from behind. That image captured the imagination of the college kids and the days of chhed-chhaad on the cycle were over. This song, most likely prepared in the late 60s, hit the screens a bit too late. The film itself did not do very well at the box office, what with both Manoj Kumar and Sadhna already into somewhat senior roles than college kids.

The singing voices are those of Rafi Saab, Manna De and Asha Bhosle. That is what the credits for this song identify. But there is one more female voice that appears for just one or two lines solo, and also sings another few lines with Asha. The second female voice is not identified, and I would request other knowledgeable readers to help put a name to it.

The video clip has only two stanzas, and thankfully, the complete audio consisting of three stanzas is also available. Both links are provided. I checked the disk that I have for this film; this song is edited in the disk itself. On screen, it is Manoj Kumar, Sadhna, Mehmood and Aruna Irani that lead their groups (of boys and girls) in this song. In the boys group, one can clearly make out Dheeraj Kumar, keeping very close to Manoj and Mehmood.

And so, this very peppy and somewhat risqué song, probably the only one of its type, that shows a back and forth argument between the cycling genders. Enjoy.

ae kaash ke hum cycle hotey
in haathon mein handle hotey
pairon ke taley pedal hotey
dabti utth’ti saddle hotey
bhar jaat muraadon ki jholi
bhar jaat muraadon ki jholi
cycle pe haseenon ki toli

cycle pe jawaanon ki toli
dekhi to
dekhi to
dekhi to tabeeyat yoon boli
ae kaash ke hum sandal hotey
sodey ki bhari botal hotey
tab theek se tum tackle hotey
sab jhagde abhi settle hotey
pachhtaate ke neeyat kyun doli
pachhtaate ke neeyat kyun doli
cycle pe jawaanon ki toli

sadkon pe parade ye fashion ki
ik shakal hai invitation ki
ha ha ha

gat kuchh bhi banaao nation ki
tum jaan ho us generation ki
jo dil pe chalaati hai goli
jo dil pe chalaati hai goli
cycle pe haseenon ki toli
dekhi to tabeeyat yoon boli
ae kaash ke hum cycle hotey
in haathon mein handle hotey
pairon ke taley pedal hotey
dabti utth’ti saddle hotey
bhar jaati muraadon ki jholi
bhar jaati muraadon ki jholi
cycle pe haseenon ki toli

cycle pe haseenon ki toli
dekhi to tabiyat yoon boli
ae kaash ke hum cycle hotey
in haathon mein handle hotey
pairon ke taley pedal hotey
dabti utth’ti saddle hotey
bhar jaati muraadon ki jholi
bhar jaati muraadon ki jholi
cycle pe haseenon ki toli

Sudhir ji,
your write up -as usual – is much better than the song itself.
It is painful to see senior actors as young collegians-yeh hazam nahi hota. Added to that the inordinate delay of the film making and the release makes the heroine duller.

Amanat was a huge hit in Calcutta..the sole reason being that during the interval a 10-15 minutes recording of Filmfare awards was played.Deewar begged most of them that year and most of the scenes showed Amitabh..such was his craze..just to watch few scenes,ppl tolerated full movie..Songs were great but the movie..Manoj Kumar and Sadhna as college students..unthinkable.

while on Cycle song..my memory fails me..but was ‘Ai dil e awara chal, fir wahi dobara chal’ picturised on a cycle?

Yes, “Ae dil e aawaara chal” (Dr Vidya) was a cycle song. This song has been discussed in the blog in the past.
