Badaa hi CID hai woh neeli chhatri waalaa

Posted on: February 22, 2010


I have no idea when the three letter abbreviation (TLA) called CID came into existence. But this TLA certainly caught the fancy of the public. In the mind of the aam janta, CID means something mysterious, bordering on almost supernatural. As a kid, when I asked my elders what was CID, I was given a highly flattering idea of what a CID was. A CID is a master of disguise. “He could be with you, looking like a normal person, but you would not be able to guess that he is CID”- I was told. I would look around me. Finding no one else with me, I would suspect that elder to be CID. But then I was told that CID are there to investigate crimes. Since I was not a criminal, so I would give that elder a clean chit.

Movie makers also capitalised on the public fancy with the word CID. So we had some popular movies with CID in their titles.

Movies may have had CID in their titles,But as far as songs are concerned, there was just one such song with the word CID in it. This song was from a movie called “Chandan” (1958). This word uses CID as an adjective. Bada hi CID hai wo neeli chhatri waala” (The God almighty is such a CID). This unique usage of the word CID shows what a popular term this CID was those days and it also shows that CID was supposed to have supernatural powers almost like the God.

This song is from “Chandan” (1958). It is sung by Rafi and picturised on Johny Walker. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist and Madan Mohan composed the music. This racy song stood 19th in Binaca geetmala 1958 finals. For some reason, this song was very difficult to come by. I have finally managed to locate this song and I am really impressed with this song. What a gem of a song it is !


Song- Badaa hi CID hai woh neeli chhatri waalaa (Chandan) (1958) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

badaa hi C I D hai woh neeli chhatri waalaa
har taale ki chaabi rakhe har chaabi kaa taalaa
badaa hi C I D hai woh neeli chhatri waalaa
har taale ki chaabi rakhe har chaabi kaa taalaa
badaa hi C I D hai

wardi uski badi niraali kabhi nazar naa aane waali
wardi uski badi niraali kabhi nazar naa aane waali
naa koyi billaa naa koyi number daftar uskaa neelaa ambar
note hai uski pocket book mein sabkaa maal-masaalaa
badaa hi C I D hai woh neeli chhatri waalaa
har taale ki chaabi rakhe har chaabi kaa taalaa
badaa hi C I D hai

chhup-chhup koyi daakaa daale yaa kare khoon
ho jaaye usko automatic telephoon
chhup-chhup koyi daakaa daale yaa kare khoon
ho jaaye usko automatic telephoon
arre chaubees ghante jaage uski aankh kabhi naa laage
hoshiyaar khabardaar
bach ke rahnaa dekh rahaa hai sab kuchh oopar waalaa
badaa hi C I D hai woh neeli chhatri waalaa
har taale ki chaabi rakhe har chaabi kaa taalaa
badaa hi C I D hai

lambaa-chaudaa uskaa thaanaa sabko ik din wahin hai jaanaa
lambaa-chaudaa uskaa thaanaa sabko ik din wahin hai jaanaa
kyaa pitaa ji aur kyaa maataa saasu-sasuraa aur bhraataa
uski nazar mein sab hain baraabar kyaa saali kyaa saalaa
badaa hi C I D hai woh neeli chhatri waalaa
har taale ki chaabi rakhe har chaabi kaa taalaa
lalalalalala lalalalalala
lalalalala
