Sainya jhoothon ka bada sartaaz nikla

Posted on: October 19, 2008


“Do aankhen barah haath” was a movie far ahead of its time, or perhaps it was a movie of the times ( viz. that of an idealist era). The storyline is unbelievably idealistic, and the movie may be difficult to watch unless you have far too much of patience. But there is no denying that it was a truly different movie, and a pioneering effort.

This song was not really connected to the storyline. it was there in the movie just as a relief to the public who were otherwise being subjected to incessant heavy duty idealistic stuff.

And there is no doubt that the scene which shows Sandhya singing a song and going about her business comes as a welcome relief not only to the audience, but also to the other characters of the movie ( read criminals who were undergoing reformation at thehands of the idealistic hero). Sandhya, the heroine of this and subsequent movies made by the maker ( V Shantaram, who married Sandhya) would not be a mere showpiece in these movies. She was often called upon to do very difficult tasks in these movies especially while singing and dancing.

In this song for instance, she is carrying and balancing a big basket on her head, and pulling a small two wheeler cart behind her, in addition to playing a tanpoora, singing and walking. That makes it at least 5 tasks that she was doing simultaneously. Such multitasking in an era when this term was not even invented is something quite remarkably unbelievable. And true to the multitasking nature of the song, even the cart that she is drawing behind her is, in addition to being dragged, playing a drum as it is moving ahead. The person incharge of this picturisation had quite a scientific bend of mind, as we can clearly see.

But this was nothing compared to what she was called upon to perform in the subsequent V Shantaram movies.

It is a nice song sung very well by Lata. Only complaint that I can have in this song is that Lata pronounces “jhoothhon” ( liars) as “jooton” ( shoes) in this song, or at least it appears so to me. But may be it is my ears that deceive me.

The lyrics of Bharat Vyas and music of Vasant Desai ( both highly respected veterans in their crafts) help create a wonderful song that is remembered to this date.


Song- sainya jhoothon ka bada sartaaz nikla (Do aakhen barah haath) ( 1957) Singer-Lata, Lyrics- Bharat Vyas, MD-Vasant Desai

Lyrics

ho ho ho
sainyaa jhoothon kaa badaa sartaaj niklaa
sainyaa jhoothon kaa badaa sartaaj niklaa
mujhe chhod chalaa, mukh mod chalaa
dil tod chalaa badaa dhokhebaaj niklaa
sainyaa jhoothon kaa badaa sartaaj niklaa

ho ho ho
chal diyaa zulmi mujhse bahaanaa banaa
mere nanhe se dil ko nishaanaa banaa
chal diyaa zulmi mujhse bahaanaa banaa
mere nanhe se dil ko nishaanaa banaa
badaa teekhaa wo
daiyya teekhaa wo teerandaaj niklaa
mujhe chhod chalaa, mukh mod chalaa
dil tod chalaa badaa dhokhebaaj niklaa
sainyaa jhoothon kaa badaa sartaaj niklaa

ho ho ho
kuchh dinon se piyaa ham se naa boltaa
ho ho kuchh dinon se piyaa ham se naa boltaa
na hamaaraa ghoonghatwaa kaa pat kholtaa
kuchh dinon se piyaa ham se naa boltaa
na hamaaraa ghoonghatwaa kaa pat kholtaa
is gup-chup kaa
is gup-chup kaa bhed dekho aaj nikalaa
mujhe chhod chalaa, mukh mod chalaa
dil tod chalaa badaa dhokhebaaj niklaa
sainyaa jhoothon kaa badaa sartaaj niklaa
sainyaa jhoothon kaa badaa sartaaj niklaa

Ha Ha Ha, I had to laugh at your detailed multi-tasking description :-). Its a nice fun song.

Do Aankhen Barah Haath was an interesting film and indeed different. I have never quite been able to make up my mind about this film. Do I love it? Or is it too intense?

It did have some lovely songs though. Aye Maalik Tere Bande Hum is so well known but there was another nice song – Umad Ghumad ke aayi re ghata.

Now that you have reminded me, yes”ai maalik tere bande hum” too was a song from this movie.

Thanks a lot, Atul for posting this song from my farmaish list.

I like this song a lot – it has a halka-phulka feeling to it and , like you say, is a welcome change from the intense storyline of the movie.

This was a landmark movie and I liked the movie a lot. Yes, it is an idealistic film and would be quite unsuited to today’s world. Even at that time, Shantaram was criticized for making hardened criminals look “soft” – the fear was that they would begin to become appealing to the audience.

I saw this movie at a very impressionable age – I was in my early teens. It did make a big impression on me.

“Aye maalik tere bande hum” is of course an all-time classic but this song “saiyan…” is also charming in its own way.

Thanks.

And the “multi-tasking” part is hilarious, the way you describe it.
And looking at the video, the cart playing the drum looks really cute.

As I said, the movie was ahead of its time, and that applied to this song as well.
