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

Iktaara boley kuchh kahe wo tumse

Posted on: April 13, 2009


Manoj Kumar was a movie maker who would make movies with simplistic messages telling India was good, west was bad ( Purab aur paschim), Villagers were good, city folks were bad ( Upkaar ) etc. In this connection, here is this movie “Yaadgaar” (1970) where Manoj Kumar continues to shove his ideals down the throats of public.

This song ” iktara bole” has two versions, and in both versions, people who do not go to temple but to clubs, and people who indulge in fashion, men who are thin and weak etc are taken to task rather harshly.

It was a song that would strike a chord with gullible public, and I as a kid was certainly gullible those days and liked this song.

This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and picturised on Manoj Kumar and his devotees, all wearing saffron clothes. The song was written by Verma Malik and music direction was by Kalyanji Anandji.

Lyrics

Part I

iktaara bole
sun sun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun iktara bolo
sun sun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun
baat hai lambi matlab gol
khol na de ye sabke pol
to phir uske baad
iktaara bole
tun tun
sun sun sun
iktaara bole
sun sun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun
iktara bolo
tun tun tun tun tun

kuchh aise log bhi hote hain
kuchh aise log bhi hote hain
apni galti pe rote hain
apna to pet nahin bharta
par das das bachhe hote hain
par das das bachhe hote hain
har saal calender chaap diyaa
parivaar niyojan saaf kiya
to phir uske baad
iktaara bole
tun tun
sun sun sun
iktaara bole
sun sun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun
iktara bolo
tun tun tun tun tun

pahle to thaa chola burqa
pahle to thaa chola burqa
phir kat kat ke wo hua kurta
chole ki ab choli hai bani
choli se aage kyaa hoga
choli se aage kyaa hoga
ye fashion badhta badhta gaya
aur kapda tan se ghatta gaya
to phir uske baad
iktaara bole
tun tun
sun sun sun
iktaara bole
sun sun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun
iktara bolo
tun tun tun tun tun

are Hex teri aisi taisi
are Hex teri aisi taisi
soorat hai ladki jaisi
tang pant patli taangen
lagti hain cigarette jaisi
lagti hain cigarette jaisi
desh ka yahi jawaan hai to
desh ki ye santaan hai to
to phir uske baad
iktaara bole
tun tun
sun sun sun
sun sun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun
iktara bolo
tun tun tun tun tun

arre rocket koi chaadhaata hai
arre rocket koi chaadhaata hai
koi atom bomb banaata hai
aman ke naam pe dekho wo
duniya pe rob jamaata hai
duniya pe rob jamaata hai
baarood agar ye chal jaaye
saari duniya jal jaaye
to phir uske baad
iktaara bole
tun tun
sun sun sun
iktaara bole
tun tun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun iktara bolo
tun tun tun tun tun

mandir se log ghabraate hain
mandir se log ghabraate hain
aur roz club me jaate hain
log bhakti bhajan sab bhool gaye
aur filmi gaane gaate hain
aur filmi gaane gaate hain
jab dharm nahin aur sharm nahin
koi bhi acchaa karm nahin
to phir uske baad
iktaara bole
tun tun
su sun sun
iktaara bole
sun sun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun iktara bolo
tun tun tun tun tun

do kism ke neta hote hain
ik detaa hai ik paata hai
ho ho
ik desh ko loot ke khaata hai
ik desh pe jaan lutaata hai
ho ho
ik zinda rah kar marta hai
ik mar kar jeewan paata hai
ik maraa to namo nishaan hi nahin
ik yaadgaar ban jaata hai
ik yaadgaar ban jaata hai
bhagwaan kare mere dash ke sab neta hi ban jaayen aise
thode se laal bahadur hon
thode se hon nehru jaise
thode se hon nehru jaise
raam na kare mere desh ko
raam na kare mere desh ko
kabhi bhi aisa neta mile
jo aap bhi doobe desh bhi doobe
janta ko bhi le doobe
arre janta ko bhi le doobe
vote liya aur khisak gaya
jab kursi se chipak gayaa
to phir uske baad
uske baad
iktaara bole
tun tun
sun sun sun
iktaara bole
sun sun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun iktara bolo
tun tun tun tun tun
tun tun tun tun tun
tun tun tun tun tun
tun tun tun tun tun

Part II

jis ghar me daaku chor chupe
us ghar ki mehnat kya hogi
jis daur ke ye annadaata hon
us daur ki kismat kya hogi
jis maan ke bachhe bhookhe rahen
us maan ki haalat kya hogi
jo desh milaawat khaata hai
us desh ki taaqat kya hogi
us desh ki taaqat kya hogi
yehi wo ration wala hai
yehi wo ration wala hai
jisne kuch kiya ghotaala hai
aate mein ret milaayi hai
shakkar mein aata daala hai
shakkar mein aata daala hai
duniya ye ration khaati rahe
nit nayi beemaari aati rahe
to phir uske bad
iktaara bole
tun tun
sun sun sun
iktaara bole
tun tun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun iktara bolo
tun tun tun tun tun
tun tun tun tun tun
tun tun tun tun tun
ik taara bole

sun sun iktara bolo
tun tun tun tun tun

jo doctor bankar aata hai
pahle ye qasme khaata hai
sewa main karoonga janta ki
yehi vishwaas dilaata hai
ho ho
aur jab degree mil jaati hai
is baat ko bhool hi jaata hai
bhagwaan ke peechhe doctor hi
insaan ki jaan bachaata hai
insaan ki jaan bachaata hai
beemaar pe jo na taras khaaye
beemaar pe jo na taras khaaye
aur laaparwaahi kar jaaye
wo hi doctor is desh ki sabse
badi beemaari ban jaaye
badi beemaari ban jaaye
jo jaan ki keemat na samjhe
insaan ki keemat na samjhe
to phir uske baad
iktaara bole
tun tun
tun tun tun
iktaara bole
tun tun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun iktara bolo
tun tun tun tun tun
tun tun tun tun tun

ye laal hain Bharat mata ke
maan se hi daga kamaate hain
ye chheen ke roti bhaayion ki
apni jeben bhar jaate hain
ho ho
us thaali me hi chhed karen
jis thaali me ye khaate hai
apni janani ke doodh me dekho
aap hi zahar milaate hain
aap hi zahar milaate hain
janta ki kamaai khaate rahen
yoon hi loot machaate rahen
to phir uske baad

iktaara bole
tun tun
sun sun sun
iktaara bole
tun tun kya kahe ye tumse
sun sun iktara bolo
tun tun tun tun tun
tun tun tun tun tun
tun tun tun tun tun

True there is a lot of preaching but it is fun in its own way.
And of course, there is Nutan in the song so nothing else really matters, does it ? 😉
That must have been one hell of a job to get the lyrics of that song written out. Long song, two versions. I really appreciate your commitment, Atul. Labour of love, as you say.

Indeed part I is over 8 minutes long and part II is “only” 5 minutes long. Only when I got the lyrics right did I realise what a long song it is. If it took me so much time to type the lyrics down, then just imagine how it must be like writing this song in the first place.

I feel that most songs like this are a labour of love on the part of their lyricists. Indeewar certtainly wrote this song as a labour of love.

Dear ATul
I want to make one submission here. I think The song was written by Varma Malick not Indeevar. Because I still remeber an interview of Varma Malick with Ameen Sayani wherein he told about this song.

Well, one source attributed it to Indeewar. But these sources can be unreliable. I have now changed it to Verma Malik.

“Ek ne kahi duje ne mani, Nanak kahe dono gyani”. As was the case with Shyamji Ghanshyamji, a solo music director with two names here also Varma Malick has two Surnames being a single lyric writer.

Ok to all the viewers I pose a question. Who did the Auoon Unhoon Ahoon in the above song 1.Mahendra Kapoor, 2.Kalyanji, 3.Anandji or none of them.

After learning the sad demise (on 19.03.09) of Sh. Varma Malick it is my utmost duty to tell all the readers of this blog that it was VARMA MALICK who did AHOON UHOON AHOON. It was an interview with Sh. Ameen Sayani, in which, Sh. Varma Malick himself did the act again. He also told about how he got the name VARMA MALICK, which has gone out of memory. It is already more than three years are over but I feel as I have heard his voice, on FM radio, a few days back. May the God rest him in heaven!

Thanks about this little known fact about this song.

I was not awre that Varma Malik died recently. RIP, Varma Malik !

ATUL JI

Please include this beautiful Lata song from Yaadgar –
“JIS PATHPE CHALA US PATH PE MUJHE AANCHAL TO BICHHANE DE”
It is a fantastic creation of Indeevar and Kalyanji Anandji.

Yeh meri pehli farmaish hain, umeed hain aap is pe gaur farmaoge.

muze yaadgaar(1970) film ka ektara bole tun tun (part 1 & 2) chahiye so please send me link for this song dawnload

Namaskar Atulji, this song has one more stanza a total 10 stanzas song. I want to submit this stanza for more than three years which I had seen in the film during my childhood but unable to write lyrics as not available on YT but thanks to “Tranquil Wisdom” for upload full song having additional stanza which appers as part III during climax.

Here is the YT link :

And here is the Lyrics :

Har Rashtra me Rashtra-geet ko sabhi sheesh jhukaate hain

Apni shradhha se gaate hain gaakar shaan badhaate hain

Lekin yahan jab Jan-Gan-Man ho log bade ghabraate hain

Kuch nadaan to sune bina hi beech me chhod ke jaate hain

Beech me chhod ke jaate hain……

Sandesh sunaye Iktara
bolo JAI BHARAT pyara

to phir uske baad……..
Iktara bole tun tun tun tun tun ……….

thanks Anekant ji for the additional stanza and the link.

Audio having 9 out of 10 stanzas
