Jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi

Posted on: June 30, 2009


“Five Rifles” (1974) was a C grade movie produced by comedian I S Johar. The movie itself made little impression on the movie goers, but there were a few interesting tricks that I S Johar adopted in this movie.

One was monkeys driving motor bikes in it. They were actually small kids who drove motorbikes wearing monkey suits.

Another trick, which paid great dividends, was incorporating a qawwali by leading qawwwal Aziz Naazaan. His qawwali “jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi” became hugely popular and if this movie is still remembered today, then it is mainly because of this qawwali.

In reality, this qawwali was not created for this movie. This qawwali was created by Aziz Nazaan for his mushairas. He was the singer as well as the music director of this qawwali. Lyricist is Nazaan Sholapuri. I wonder if it is Aziz Nazaan himself or some other person.

Though the qawwali is sung by Aziz Nazaan- a male, it was picturised in the movie but on a female viz Ambika Johar (daughter of I S Johar). To I S Johar’s mind, Indian public did not bother about such minor details as long as they got what they wanted. And I S Johar may not have been too far off the mark here.

The movie version is less than three minutes long. The full version of the qawwali that Aziz Nazaan sang in his concerts was much longer.

Here are both the versions of the qawwali. So enjoy this qawwali, which is one of the most well known qawwalis of all time.

movie version lyrics

naa haram mein, naa sukoon miltaa hai butkhaane mein
chain miltaa hai to saaqi tere maikhaane mein

jhoom, jhoom, jhoom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi, jhoom baraabar jhoom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi, jhoom baraabar jhoom
kaali ghataa hai, aa aa…, mast fazaa hai, aa aa…
kaali ghataa hai mast fazaa hai, jaam uthaakar ghoom ghoom ghoom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi, jhoom baraabar jhoom

aaj angoor ki beti se muhabbat kar le
sheikh saahab ki naseehat se baghaawat kar le
iski beti ne uthaa rakhi hai sar par duniyaa
ye to achchhaa huaa angoor ko betaa naa huaa
kamsekam soorat-e-saaqi kaa nazaaraa kar le
aake maikhaane mein jeene kaa sahaaraa kar le
aankh milte hi jawaani kaa mazaa aayegaa
tujhko angoor ke paani kaa mazaa aayegaa
har nazar apni basad shauq gulaabi kar de
itni peele ke zamaane ko sharaabi kar de
jaam jab saamne aaye to mukarnaa kaisaa
baat jab peene ki aajaaye to darnaa kaisaa
dhoom machi hai, aa aa…, maikhaane mein, aa aa…
dhoom machi hai maikhaane mein, tu bhi machaa le dhoom dhoom dhoom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi jhoom baraabar jhoom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi jhoom baraabar jhoom

jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi jhoom baraabar jhoom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi jhoom baraabar jhoom

iske peene se tabeeyat mein rawaani aaye
isko boodhaa bhi jo peele to jawaani aaye
peene waale tujhe aajaayegaa peene kaa mazaa
iske har ghoont mein posheedaa hai jeene kaa mazaa
baat to jab hai ke tu mai kaa parastaar bane
tuu nazar daal de jis par wohi maikwaar bane
mausam-e-gul mein to peene kaa mazaa aataa hai
peene waalon hi ko jeene kaa mazaa aataa hai
jaam uthaale, aa aa…, munh se lagaale, aa aa…
jaam uthaale, munh se lagaale, munh se lagaakar choom choom choom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi jhoom baraabar jhoom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi jhoom baraabar jhoom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi jhoom baraabar jhoom

jo bhi aataa hai yahaan peeke machal jaataa hai
jab nazar saaqi ki padti hai sambhal jaataa hai
aa idhar jhoomke saaqi kaa leke naam uthaa
dekh wo abr uthaa tu bhi zaraa jaam uthaa
is qadar peele ke rag-rag mein suroor aajaaye
kasrate mai se tere chehre pe noor aajaaye
iske har katre mein naazaan hai nihaan dariyaadili
isake peene se ataa hoti hai ke zindaadili
shaan se peele, aa aa…, shaan se jeele, aa aa…
shaan se peele shaan se jeele, ghoom nashe mein ghoom ghoom ghoom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi jhoom baraabar jhoom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi jhoom baraabar jhoom
jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi jhoom baraabar jhoom

I love this qawwali, it would have been on my top ten list except I haven’t been able to see the film (and that was one of my rules)…:-)

I S Johar was a iconoclast. He felt that the money big stars were commanding at that time were quite unjustified. So he made this movie with star “duplicates”. He had a Rajesh Khann “duplicate”, a Shashi Kapoor “duplicate”. Maybe Shatrughan “duplicate” too, I don’t remember now. Interesting concept.

The movie was quite eagerly awaited, flopped miserably and is remembered today for this one song.

Yes, I had forgotten that this movie had duplicates of stars.Even their names were similar to that of the originals. Their names were Rakesh Khanna, Shahi Kapoor, etc.

Beautiful! Never knew that this was in a movie actually…always had heard the original version though!

beautiful quawali :)..happy tat cud find it here 😀

This one and ‘raaz ki baat kehdun to’ are the two quawwalis that we the ‘seventies’ fans can never forget ever !!
