Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Shola jo bhadke dil mera dhadke

Posted on: November 1, 2008


“Albela” was a definitive movie in Bollywood history. Bhagwan, then a C grade movie producer, took a big risk in producing this movie which was a big step forward for him. He took a big financial risk in producing this movie, and his gamble paid off. It is another matter that he failed to replicate the success of this movie in his subsequent movies, and he went back to where he was, before this movie happened.

But as far as this movie was concerned, this movie was pure magic, and that was especially true for its songs. I have lost count of the number of popular songs from this movie.

Here is one of the songs from “Albela”. The music director of this movie was C Ramchandra, who also sang for Bhagwan in this movie.C Ramchandra was often known as Chitalkar while singing. And one can notice that he sounds so much like Talat Mahmood.

Lata sang for Geeta Bali. And in those days, her voice sounded so fresh, and in any case, she was only a few years into the industry, and was still evolving as a singer.

This song, as well as the video of the song took Bollywood by storm, because the movie goers had never seen or heard anything like this before. One can clearly see the influence of western music in the songs of this movie at a time when the Bollywood playback singing was in its nascent stage. Music of movies like “Albela” determined the course of Bollywood movie music for all times to come.

Not just the music, even the picturisation was far ahead of its time, and this song soon became a rage. Younger generations are also familiar with this song, thanks to remixes, cover versions, etc. Here is the original version, and this original version is truly timeless.

And one can notice that Bhagwan danced like Amitabh. Now do not say that he copied Amitabh. Amitabh was only 10 years old when this song was picturised. It is Bhagwan who many decades later taught Amitabh the dance steps that Amitabh then began to employ in his dances.

As I said, this song is among the immortal songs in Bollywood history.

Lyrics

sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
dard jawaani ka sataaye badh-badh ke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
dard jawaani ka sataaye badh-badh ke

mahki hawaayen bahke kadam mere
aise mein thaam lo aa ke balam more
mahki hawaayen bahke kadam mere
aise mein thaam lo aa ke balam more
pattaa bhi khadake to bijli si kadke,
pattaa bhi khadake to bijli si kadke
dard jawaani ka sataaye badh-badh ke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
dard jawaani ka sataaye badh-badh ke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
dard jawaani ka sataaye badh-badh ke

pyaar ko mere kisne pukaaraa
dil mein utar gayaa kiskaa ishaaraa
pyaar ko mere kisne pukaaraa
dil mein utar gayaa kiskaa ishaaraa
yaad ye kiski laayi pakad ke,
yaad ye kiski laayi pakad ke
dard jawaani ka sataaye badh-badh ke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
dard jawaani ka sataaye badh-badh ke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
dard jawaani ka sataaye badh-badh ke

aaa
dekhaa jo tumko
dekhaa jo tumko dard gaya tham
ab to na honge tumse judaa ham
dekhaa jo tumko dard gaya tham
ab to na honge tumse judaa ham
jee na sakenge tumse bichadke
jee na sakenge tumse bichadke
dard jawaani ka sataaye badh-badh ke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
dard jawaani ka sataaye badh-badh ke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
sholaa jo bhadke dil meraa dhadke
dard jawaani ka sataaye badh-badh ke

[…] influenced songs as well as Indian folk music based songs. The western music influenced song is Shola jo bhadke dil mera dhadke(Albela ), which continued to inspire imitations in India even […]

I just love this song, and I am wondering why I hadn’t looked for it all these days on this blog. I am wondering if the reason for Bhagwan not seeing the same kind of success replicated subsequently may have had to do with the extra fat on his body, and so …, but who am I to comment on others? This song, as well as the other songs in this movie, actually make me want to see this movie. Maybe, some day!

Thanks for this wonderful song, Atul!

Bhagwan was not a business savvy person therefore he was unable to capitalise on the success of this movie.

Yesterday, I played VCDs just to know who was the choreographer of this movie and in this process I got so much engrossed that I saw the entire movie after many years. The choreographer of this movie was the then popular Surya Kumar. My guess is that Surya Kumar himself may be one of the supporting dancers in this song. Check out at 4:03 of the video link.

Here is another video link showing CR singing this song with Kavita Krishnamurthy in a DD programme:
