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

Khaali dabba khaali bottle lele mere yaar

Posted on: July 29, 2009


I have mentioned it in the past that “NeelKamal” (1968) was a movie that gave us some iconic songs.

It was this movie which had that iconic bidaayi song -“baabul ki duaayen deti jaa”. This same movie had that memorable song talking of eternal love -“aaja tujhko pukaare mera pyaar”. This same movie had that iconic bhajan “he rom rom me basne waale Raam”.

Though the above mentioned songs were hugely popular, kids like me were not much into bidayi song, or love songs or into bhajans. There was another song from this movie which was the most popular among kids-certainly more popular than the three abovementioned iconic songs.

This song is forgotten today, but I am sure people who loved this song then will love it again if they listen to that song again.

I found that this song was not at all available on internet.

Not any longer. Here is this song for the listening and viewing pleasures of the readers of this blog. Unlike the abovementioned iconic songs, which were picturised on Balraj Sahni, Raj Kumar and Waheeda Rehman respectively, this song is picturised on Mehmood, who was a must in most mainstream movies those days.

Yes, this song is that much loved song “khaali dabba khaali bottle le le mere yaar” from “Neelkamal”. It is sung by Manna Dey and it is picturised on Mehmood, as mentioned above, who plays a comedy role in this movie as Lalita Pawar’s son in law, who lives with her as her ghar jamai.

This song is written by Sahir Ludhianvi and Ravi composed the music.

It is not just another song for this blog, by the way. This is a very special song for this blog specially uploaded for this occasion. Yes, this song is the 1700th song of this blog. So here is this much loved, but by now rare song from “Neelkamal” for the listening and viewing pleasures of my readers.

This song incidentally happens to be a camel song and in fact this is one of the first such songs of this category in this blog.

Before I conclude, I thank all by patrons who continue to shower their love, blessings, comments, suggestions, encouragements etc. Keep them coming. I hope that this blog will continue to go from strength to strength. Unnoticed to us all, this blog just completed one year too, last month. 1700 songs in a little over one year is very nice going. Here is hoping that we will have many more nice songs in this blog in the days to come. Thank you all once more.


Song-Khaali dabba khaali bottle lelo mere yaar (Neelkamal) (1968) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

khaali dabba khaali bottle
khaali dabba khaali bottle

khaali dabaa khaali bottle lele mere yaar
khaali se mat nafrat karna khaali sab sansaar
khaali dabaa khaali bottle lele mere yaar
khaali se mat nafrat karna khaali sab sansaar

badaa badaa sar khaali dabba
bada badaa tan khaali bottle
badaa badaa sar khaali dabba
badaa badaa tan khaali bottle
wo bhi aadhe khaali nikle
jinpe lagaa thaa bhare ka label
wo bhi aadhe khaali nikle
jinpe lagaa thaa bhare ka label
ho
hamne is duniya ke dil me jhaankaa hai sau baar
le khaali dabaa khaali bottle lele mere yaar
khaali se mat nafrat karna khaali sab sansaar

khaali ki guarantee doongaa
bhare huye ki kyaa guarantee
khaali ki guarantee doongaa
bhare huye ki kyaa guarantee
shahad me gud ke mel ka dar hai
ghee ke andar tel ka dar hai
tambaakoo mein bhaat kaa khatra
scent mein jhooti baas ka khatra
makkhan mein charbi ki milaawat
kesar me kaagaz ki khilaawat
mirchi me einton ki ghisaayi
aate me patthar ki pisaayi
whisky andar tincture ghultaa
rabdi beech blotting tulta
kyaa jaane kis cheez me kyaa ho
garam masaala leed bharaa ho
khaali ki guarantee doongaa
bhare huye ki kyaa guarantee
kyun duwidha me padaa hai pyaare
jhaad de pocket khol de anti
kyun duwidha me padaa hai pyaare
jhaad de pocket khol de anti
ho
chhaan pees kar khud bhar lenaa
aaa
chhaan pees kar khud bhar lenaa
jo kuchh ho sarkaar
lele
khaali dabaa khaali bottle lele mere yaar
khaali se mat nafrat karna khaali sab sansaar
khaali dabba
oy meri bhaabhi
khaali bottle
oy laalaa
khaali dabaa khaali bottle lele mere yaar
khaali se mat nafrat karna khaali sab sansaar

khaali dabaa
khaali bottle

Congrats, Atul, on this blog’s first year anniversary.
You have provided us so much viewing/listening/reading pleasure in this one year. Your blog seems to be becoming the de facto one-stop shop for songs. I check it out practically every day.

Keep it up. Rest assured we are always here to encourage you.
And since you have asked for suggestions/comments to “keep coming”, be prepared for some farmaishes to come your way. 😉

About this song, I remember this as being a fun bright spot in what was an otherwise pretty dreary movie IMO.

Hi Atul, I am not able to post farmaishes in the usual part of the blog, so posting it here. (Maybe you could have a separate new heading for farmaishes ?)
Anyway here are a bunch of them from me (as usual at your convenience) 🙂 :
– Dilruba dil pe tu (Rajkumar) * I just love this song *
– Jawaniyan ye mast mast (Tumsa Nahin Dekha)
– Sar pe topi laal (Tumsa Nahin Dekha)
– Tadbeer se bigdi hui (Baazi)
– Tadap ye din raat ki (Amrapali)
– Neel gagan ki chhaon mein (Amrapali)
– Maine shaayad tumhen pehle bhi (Barsaat Ki Raat)
– Soorat haseen (Budtameez)
– Yaaron mera saath nibhao (Pyasi Sham)
– Awara Majhi (Pyasa Sham)

Congrats Atul. I am looking forward to second year compilation. Iam looking forward to Rafi- Mubarak Begum song from film HUM RAHI

There is a fabulous song missing from your list in this movie. That is-
‘Aao ni sakhiyon…….’. It has a great dance by Waheeda Rehman.
If possible,please add that song to your already great compilation.
Thanks
