Meethi meethi baaton se bachna zaraa

Posted on: September 29, 2009


“Qaidi no 911” (1959) was a “B grade” movie in the sense that it was an action thriller and it had Sheikh Mukhtar as action hero. When I say it was a B grade movie, I mean no disrespect. In fact, I think movies like this with Sheikh Mukhtar as hero were as good as the A grade action movies of 1970s. Yes, action movies had begun to be regarded as A grade by 1970s.

I never tire of mentioning that even the so called B grade movies of 1950s were A grade as far as their music was concerned. This is certainly the case with this movie.

The most well known song of this movie is “meethi meethi baaton se bachna zara”. It is sung by Lata and Daisy Irani. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist and Dattaram composed the music.

What was not known to me is that this song has two versions. The first (faster version) is the better known version. It is picturised on Daisy Irani and Nanda. Nanda is seen apeing the mannerisms of Meena Kumari and resembing Meena Kumari from many angles in this song.

The slower version of the song comer later in the movie and it is part of the climax, from what I can see. Here Nanda sings this song to locate Daisy Irani who has been kidnapped by baddies. Towards the end of the song , Daisy responds to the song and that enables Nanda ( not to speak of Sheikh Mukhtar and Mukri) to get an idea about the whereabouts of Daisy Irani.

In fact, watching the picturisation of this song makes me want to watch this movie.

For the time being, here is this song- both versions of it.

Audio – Faster version

Video – Faster version

Video – Slower version

Song-Meethi meethi baaton se bachna zara (Qaidi no 911) Singers-Lata, Daisy Irani, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Dattaram

hmm
aur gaao na didi

meethi meethi baaton se bachna zara
duniya ke logon me hai jaadu bharaa

aaa
meethi meethi baaton se
meethi meethi
meethi meethi baaton se bachna zara
duniya ke logon mein hai jaadu bharaa
meethi meethi

aaa aaa
ooo ooo

khoob tez hai ilm jise
koi chor bhi le na sake
khoob tez hai ilm jise
koi chor bhi le na sake
bhar le khazaana
tera zamaana
jag mein rahegaa teraa naam sadaa
mehnat se din raat padhoongaa
pahla number pass karoongaa
shabaash
Meethi meethi baaton se bachna zara
duniya ke logon mein hai jaadu bharaa
Meethi meethi baaton se bachna zara
duniya ke logon mein hai jaadu bharaa

aaa aaa
ooo ooo
khel kood mein khona nahin
baat baat mein rona nahin
khel kood mein khona nahin
baat baat mein rona nahin
tu hai kinaara chanda se pyaara
karna jahaan me koi kaam badaa
Hindustaan ki shaan bannoongaa
desh ka unchaa naam karoongaa
shabaash
meethi meethi baaton se bachna zara
duniya ke logon mein hai jaadu bharaa
meethi meethi

aaa aaa
ooo ooo

jhoom jhoom toofaan ki nazar
raahein gher le teri agar
jhoom jhoom toofaan ki nazar
raahein gher le teri agar
hoga andhera koi na ho tera
phir tu bachegaa kaise
hamko bataa
toofaanon se nahin daroonga
himmat se main nikal padoongaa
shabaash
meethi meethi baaton se bachna zara
duniya ke logon mein hai jaadu bharaa
meethi meethi baaton se
meethi meethi
meethi meethi baaton se bachna zara
duniya ke logon mein hai jaadu bharaa

khoob cheez hai ilm jise

khoob cheez hai ilm jise
koi chor bhi le na sake
ghar mein khazaana
tera zamaana
jag me rahega tera naam sadaa
meethi meethi baaton se bachna zara
duniya ke logon mein hai jaadu bharaa
meethi meethi baaton se

khel kood mein khonaa nahin
baat baat mein rona nahin
khel kood mein khona nahin
baat baat mein rona nahin
tu hai sitaara chanda se pyaara
karna jahaan me koyi kaam badaa

meethi meethi baaton se bachna zara

I used to love this song in my younger days! Yes, Nanda used to spend her time in weepy movies those days, until Jab Jab Phool Khile came and then she realized she was so much better in those roles. Until then, she was just a poor man’s Meena Kumari.

This movie had another nice song also, by Manna Dey and Lata:
Pyar bhari yeh ghatayen …

Thanks for all the great songs, Atul!
