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

Kaun kisi ko baandh saka hai

Posted on: November 20, 2008


In Bollywood movies, jail inmates are often shown as comedians, and there are a few comedy songs in Bollywood movies sung by the jailbirds, viz in “Vishwanath”.

“Kaaliya” too has a jail song, but here it is a philosophical song. This song is not sung by the hero ( Amitabh) or any other main character of the movie.

Amitabh Bachchan is a dreaded prisoner in the jail who is kept under shackles and handcuffs all the time even in jail. This song is sung by Ram Sethi ( a regular in Prakash Mehra movies, who would typically be seen as Amitabh Bachchan’s sidekick). It must be the only time when Ram Sethi got to sing a song in a Bollywood movie. And he must count himself lucky that he got to sing a song sung by Rafi. It was one of the last songs recorded by Rafi, and Rafi was dead before this movie was released in 1981.

This song is a wonderful philosophical song, sung with feeling by Rafi.


Song-Kaun kisi ko baandh saka hai (Kaalia) (1981) Singer- Rafi, Lyrics- Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD- R D Burman

Lyrics

kaun kisi ko baandh sakaa
haan kaun kisi ko baandh sakaa sayyaad to ik deewaanaa hai
tod ke pinjraa ek na ek din panchhi ko ud jaanaa hai
kaun kisi ko baandh sakaa sayyaad to ik deewaanaa hai
tod ke pinjraa ek na ek din panchhi ko ud jaanaa hai

angdaayi le kar ke jaagi hai naujawaani
angdaayi le kar ke jaagi hai naujawaani
sapne naye hain aur zanjeer hai puraani
pahredaar faate se
barso raam dhadaake se
hoshiyaar bhai sab hoshiyaar
raat andheri rut barkhaa aur ghaafil saaraa zamaanaa hai
tod ke pinjraa ek na ek din panchhi ko ud jaanaa hai
kaun kisi ko baandh sakaa sayyaad to ik deewaanaa hai
tod ke pinjraa ek na ek din are panchhi ko ud jaanaa hai

o o
khidki se ruktaa hai jhonkaa kahin hawaa kaa
hil jaayen deewaaren aisaa karo dhamaakaa
khidki se ruktaa hai jhonkaa kahin hawaa kaa
hil jaayen deewaaren aisaa karo dhamaakaa
bole dhol taashe se
barso raam dhadaake se
hoshiyaar bhai sab hoshiyaar
dekh ke bhi na koyi dekhe aisaa kuchh rang jamaanaa hai
tod ke pinjaraa ek na ek din panchhi ko ud jaanaa hai
kaun kisi ko baandh sakaa sayyaad to ik deewaanaa hai
tod ke pinjraa ek na ek din panchhi ko ud jaanaa hai

kah do shikaari se phandaa lagaa ke dekhe
kah do shikaari se phandaa lagaa ke dekhe
ab jismen himmat ho raste mein aa ke dekhe
niklaa sher haanke se
barso raam dhadaake se
jaane waale ko jaanaa hai aur seenaa taan ke jaanaa hai
tod ke pinjraa ek na ek din panchhi ko ud jaanaa hai
kaun kisi ko baandh sakaa sayyaad to ik deewaanaa hai
tod ke pinjraa ek na ek din panchhi ko ud jaanaa hai
kaun kisi ko baandh sakaa sayyaad to ik deewaanaa hai
tod ke pinjraa ek na ek din panchhi ko ud jaanaa hai

I liked this movie.
And this song too.

I love the song from Mujrim (1957?) pictured on Johnny Walker in jail: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhd6CJ9FRhk
