Baar baar dekho hazaar baar dekho

Posted on: January 25, 2009


There are people who like to go to party. What exactly do they do in the party ? If they are like the party goers in Bollywood songs, most of them just stand like statues when the hero is hogging the limelight, singing a song. Except hero, everyone else seems discomfited. Even the heroine is not at ease, because the contents of the song are either praising her or cursing her, and in either case, she feels mightily embarrassed.

Our hero Shammi Kapoor ofcourse would have no such worries. He would go to a party and he would be the one shaking and dancing the most, and acting the most uninhibited, as if to compensate for the lack of movement of others and for the heroine’s inhibitions.

This song “baar baar dekho hazaar baar dekho” finds Shammi Kapoor hogging the limelight as if as a matter of right. “baar baar dekho hazaar baar dekho”, he continues to sing about the lady ( who is she ?) and she continued to be embarrassed throughout. But fat chance that Shammi Kapoor would bother about that. He throroughly enjoys himself, so what if others do not.

Song-Baar baar dekho (China Town) (1962) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

Baar baar dekho hazaar baar dekho
ke dekhne ki cheez hai hamaara dilruba
talli ho talli ho talli ho
ho Baar baar dekho hazaar baar dekho
ke dekhne ki cheez hai hamaara dilruba
talli ho talli ho talli ho

Haan ji haa aur bhi honge dildaar yahaan
laakhon dilon ki bahaar yahan
par ye baat kahaan hoy
Haan ji haa aur bhi honge dildaar yahaan
laakhon dilon ki bahaar yahan
par ye baat kahaan
ye bemisaal husn lajawaab ye adaa
talli ho talli ho talli ho
Baar baar dekho hazaar baar dekho
ke dekhne ki cheez hai hamaara dilruba
talli ho talli ho talli ho

Dil mila ek jaane mahfil mila
yaar che raaze manzil mila
ye na pooche ke kahaan
Dil mila ek jaane mahfil mila
yaar che raaze manzil mila
ye na pooche ke kahaan
naaya naaya ye aashiqui ka raaj hai mera
talli ho talli ho talli ho
Baar baar dekho hazaar baar dekho
ke dekhne ki cheez hai hamaara dilruba
talli ho talli ho talli ho

balle balle uthke mister kyun chale
pyar pe mere kaho kyun jale
baith jaao meharbaan
balle balle uthke mister kyun chale
pyar pe mere kaho kyun jale
baith jaao meharbaan
dua karo mile tumhe bhi aisa dilruba
talli ho talli ho talli ho
Baar baar dekho hazaar baar dekho
ke dekhne ki cheez hai hamaara dilruba
talli ho talli ho talli ho
talli ho talli ho talli ho

Look at her, look at her again
Keep looking at her a thousand times
For she is worth looking at, my beloved is
Tally Ho, Tally Ho
Look at her, look at her again
Keep looking at her a thousand times
For she is worth looking at, my beloved is
Tally Ho, Tally Ho

Yes Sir yes, there must be many young at heart here
Loads of hearts here
But no one quite like her
Yes Sir yes, there must be many young at heart here
Loads of hearts here
But no one quite like her
This incomparable beauty and exceptional style
Tally Ho, Tally Ho

Look at her, look at her again
Keep looking at her a thousand times
For she is worth looking at, my beloved is
Tally Ho, Tally Ho

Our hearts met, the desired stage was set
Friends, we reached our destination
Don’t ask me where it is
Our hearts met, the desired stage was set
Friends, we reached our destination
Don’t ask me where it is
This is the secret of my new-found love
Tally Ho, Tally Ho

Look at her, look at her again
Keep looking at her a thousand times
For she is worth looking at, my beloved is
Tally Ho, Tally Ho

Balle Balle, Where are you off to Mister
Why are you jealous of my love ?
Just sit down please
Balle Balle, Where are you off to Mister
Why are you jealous of my love ?
Just sit down please
Pray that you too get a sweetheart like mine
Tally Ho, Tally Ho

Look at her, look at her again
Keep looking at her a thousand times
For she is worth looking at, my beloved is
Tally Ho, Tally Ho

This song sounds like India was beginning to get the Rock and roll influence at that time. I think the lady is Shakila, the same one who came with Dev Anand in CID and with Sunil Dutt in the “Neend na mujhko aaye …” song. Very nice song, but I really like the thin Shammi Kapoor. I don’t think I have ever seen him look this thin.

As per imdb.com, the name of guy to whom Shammi Kapoor addresses as utt ke mister kahan chale the mister is MAQSOOD
and the lady sitting beside the table who always smiles at Shammi Kapoor(at 0:22) it is SHEFFALI
