Nadiya chale chale re dhaara

Posted on: October 28, 2008


“Safar” was a Rajesh Khanna movie of 1970. One thing that is noticeable about this movie is its songs. Quite a few of its songs became very popular.


In this movie, Kishore Kumar has given playback for Rajesh Khanna in the title song and that was very popular.

But in this song, it is Manna Dey who sings and this song became just as popular. This song is not lip synced by Rajesh Khanna though, but by someone else.

Incidentally, this movie had a song sung by Mukesh ( not for Rajesh Khanna either) that had become just as popular.

I summary, this movie was full of songs sung by different singers that went on to become very popular indeed.

So here is this very popular philosophical song from “Safar”.

Song- Nadiya chale chale re dhaara (Safar) (1970) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics- Indeewar, MD- Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

ohoho ohoho
o nadiyaa chale chale re dhaaraa
ohohoh
o nadiyaa chale chale re dhaaraa
chandaa chale chale re taaraa
tujhko chalnaa hogaa, tujhko chalnaa hogaa
tujhko chalnaa hogaa, tujhko chalnaa hogaa
ohoho ohoho

jeewan kahin bhi thahartaa nahin hai
jeewan kahin bhi thahartaa nahin hai
aandhi se toofan se dartaa nahin hai
tu naa chalegaa to chal dengi raahen
hai re hai re hai re hai re
o … tu naa chalegaa to chal dengi raahen
manzil ko tarsengi teri nigaahen
tujhko chalnaa hogaa, tujhko chalnaa hogaa
tujhko chalnaa hogaa, tujhko chalnaa hogaa

paar huaa wo rahaa wo safar mein
o … paar hua wo rahaa wo safar mein
jo bhi ruka phir gayaa wo bhanvar mein
naav to kyaa bah jaaye kinaaraa
o … naav to kyaa bah jaaye kinaaraa
badi hi tez samay ki hai dhaaraa
tujhko chalnaa hogaa, tujhko chalnaa hogaa
tujhko chalnaa hogaa, tujhko chalnaa hogaa
oh… nadiyaa chale chale re dhaaraa
chandaa chale chale re taaraa
tujhko chalnaa hogaa, tujhko chalnaa hogaa
tujhko chalnaa hogaa, tujhko chalnaa hogaa
ohohoh ohoho
ohohoh ohoho

It was a movie full of great song, as I have noted. Even I have not watched the movie though.

A small correction. Only Kishore Kumar sang for Rajesh Khanna in this movie, Mukesh for Feroze Khan and the Manna Dey song was sung by a boatman with Khanna & Sharmila looking on. Interestingly no female singer in this movie.

Thanks for the information. I did not notice that this movie had no female singer in it. It is indeed a very interesting observation.

Oh no, not correct. There was one lovely Lata number here “Hum the jinke sahare woh hue na hamare”.
