Bol ri kathputli

Posted on: January 3, 2010


I have posted a few songs from “Kathputli” (1957) in the past. Here is the title song from this movie.

This song is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Vyjyanti Mala. this song, which is a stage song as well has Vyjyanti Mala performing a Kathakali dance (Kerala’s classical dance).

Shailendra is the lyricist and Shankar Jaikishan composed the music. I have read somewhere that Shankar Jaikishan regarded this song as one of their major achievements. That certainly is saying something about how highly Shankar Jaikishan regarded this creation of theirs.

PS- Now I have come to know that the song had another version, viz the happy version as well. Sudhir jee, who pointed this fact out, has very helpfully provided the lyrics of the happy version as well.

aaa aa aaa aaa aaa
aaa aa aaa aaaa aaaa

bol ri kathputli dori kaun sang baandhi
sach batlaa tu naache kiske liye
bol ri kathputli dori kaun sang baandhi
sach batlaa tu naache kiske liye
baawri kathputli dori piyaa sang baandhi
main naachoon apne piyaa ke liye

aaa aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa

bol ri kathputli dori kaun sang baandhi
sach batlaa tu naache kiske liye
naye naam nit naye roop dhar main aayi main chali gayi
lekin maine dhoom machaa di jis nagri jis gali gayi
aaa aaa
chhod ke jag taaron mein pahunche wahaan bhi yahi pukaar
bol ri kathputli dori kaun sang baandhi
sach batlaa tu naache kiske liye
aaa aaa
baawri kathputli dori piyaa sang baandhi
main naachoon apne piyaa ke liye

aaa aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
bol ri kathputli dori kaun sang baandhi
sach batlaa tu naache kiske liye
meethi yaaden sundar sapne kho baithe the log jinhen
unka hi ye geet banaa ke mere dil ne liya tumhe
aa aa
kathputli ka khel ye duniyaa saajan hain us paar
bol ri kathputli dori kaun sang baandhi
sach batlaa tu naache kiske liye
ho ho ho
baawri kathputli dori piyaa sang baandhi
main naachoon apne piyaa ke liye

bol re kathputli dori
kaun sang baandhi
sach batlaa tu naache kis ke liye
bol re kathputli dori
kaun sang baandhi
sach batlaa tu naache kis ke liye
baawri kathputli dori
piyaa sang baandhi
mein naachoon apne piyaa ke liye

jahaan jidhar saajan le jaaye
sang chaloon mein chhaaya si
wo hain mere jaadugar
mein jaadugar ki maaya si
hooo. . .
jaan boojh kar
chhed ke mujh se
poochhe ye sansaar
bol re kathputli dori
kaun sang baandhi
sach batlaa tu naache kis ke liye
baawri kathputli dori
piyaa sang baandhi
mein naachoon apne piyaa ke liye

piya na hotey
mein na hoti
jeevan raag sunaata kaun
pyaar thiraktaa kis ki dhun par
dil ka saaz bajaata kaun
hooo. . .
door door
jis chaman se guzre
gaati jaaye bahaar
bol re kathputli dori
kaun sang baandhi
sach batlaa tu naache kis ke liye
baawri kathputli dori
piyaa sang baandhi
main naachoon apne piyaa ke liye

ho o o o o
o o o o o
o o o o o

ho o o o o
o o o o o
o o o o o

Very nice song. I remember seeing an interview on TV (Doordarshan) many years ago where Vyjanthimala spoke highly of this movie. It was one of her landmark movies, very well-known in its time.
