Kitna badal gayaa Bhagwaan

Posted on: May 8, 2010


In 1954, the iconic song Kitna badal gaya insaan(Nastik)(1954) was released and that song took the nation by storm. This song in fact must be regarded as a song that has broken all barriers of time and this song has assured immortality for itself as well as its creators (namely Pradeep and C Ramchandra).

I am sure that this song may have led to many imitations and parodies,though most of them are no longer remembered today. However, there is one parody of this song that still survives. This parody is from “Railway Platform” (1955) and it goes- “Kitna Badal Gaya Bhagwaan”.

Interestingly, the people who imitated the “Nastik” song are all very well known and very well respected names today. The song was sung by Rafi, S D Batish and others. The song is picturised on Sunil Dutt and others. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist and Madan Mohan composed the music.

Here is this great comedy song from “Railway Platform” (1955) which clearly takes the saying “imitation is the best form of flattery” to a new level. The fact that people of the calibre of Madan Mohan, Sahir Ludhianvi, Rafi etc are involved in this imitation shows how the original song from “Nastik” (1954) had caught the imagination of not only the public but also the Bollywood movie industry.

This song is not nearly as well as known as the original, but this song is a nice comedy song in its own right. So here is this interesting song from “Railway Platform” (1955).

PS-Sunil Dutt is just about the only actor in the picturisation that I can identify. I request my readers to help identify the other actors shown in the picturisation.

Reader Maya has identified the other actors. Others are, to quote her “Other actors are Nalini Jaywant the main lead with the hero,
Johnny walker in the cap, mnamohan Krishna the handicapped , leela misra the eternal mausi,”

Lyrics

Dekh tere Bhagwaan ki haalat kyaa ho gayi insaan
kitna badal gayaa Bhagwaan
kitna badal gayaa Bhagwaan
saani bole shaitaan
Dekh tere Bhagwaan ki haalat kyaa ho gayi insaan
kitna badal gayaa Bhagwaan
kitna badal gayaa Bhagwaan
Bhookhon ke ghar mein deraa na daale
Sethon ka ho mehmaan
theekh hai Bhagwaan
kitna badal gaya Bhagwaan
kitna badal gaya Bhagwaan

unhin ki pooja Prabhu ko pyaari
jinke ghar Laxmi ki sawaari
jinkaa dhandhaa chor baazaari
unhin se khush hai Brij Bihari
ham ko de bhookh aur bekaari
inko den wardaan
kitna badal gaya Bhagwaan
kitna badal gaya Bhagwaan
dekh tere Bhagwaan ki haalat kyaa ho gayi insaan
kitna badal gayaa Bhagwaan
kitna badal gayaa Bhagwaan

sunkar is paapi ko taano
sunkar is paapi ko taano
badal na leejo apno thikaano
he Bhagwaan
he Bhagwaan
mhaaro thaaro prem puraano
mhaaro thaaro prem puraano
ham hain thaile tum ho khazaano
bharte rahiyo daas ki jholi dete rahiyo daan
tumhaari jay jay ho Bhagwaan
tumhaari jay jay ho Bhagwaan
ho kitna badal gayaa Bhagwaan
kitna badal gayaa Bhagwaan

dhan waale hain bade machhandar
sone ke banwaaye mandar
bhagwan rahte inake andar
khari khari kahtaa hai kalandar
jaa be bandar
ban baiThaa hai is duniyaa mein dharam se dhan balwaan
kitnaa badal gayaa Bhagwaan
kitnaa badal gayaa Bhagwaan
dekh tere Bhagwaan ki haalat kyaa ho gayi insaan
kitna badal gayaa Bhagwaan
kitna badal gayaa Bhagwaan

bhookhon ke ghar mein pheraa na daale
sethon kaa ho mehmaan
kitnaa badal gayaa Bhagwaan
kitnaa badal gayaa Bhagwaan
jay Bhagwaan
jay Bhagwaan
kitnaa badal gayaa Bhagwaan
kitnaa badal gayaa Bhagwaan
jay Bhagwaan
jay Bhagwaan

Another masterpiece from Madan Mohan. Though this is a reverse song of Nastik, it does confirm lots of truth.
There are other songs from Railway Platform especially one by Lata Mangeshkar,Jiya kho gaya and Mohamed Rafi Basti basti parbat parbat gata jaye banjara.
Atul I would love to see these two songs.

I thought that I had already posted “Basti basti parbat parbat” song. Only when I was posting “kitna badal gaya Bhagwaan” that I realised that I had not posted any songs from “Railway Platform” earlier.

[…] “Railway Platform” (1955) had music by Madan Mohan but the music of a few songs were clearly influenced and inspired by C Ramchandra. For instance, this movie had a parody of C Ramchandra’s Dekh tere sansaar ki haalat.. Kitna badal gaya insaan(Nastik)(1954). This movie had a song viz. Dekh tere sansaar ki haalat…Kitna badal gaya Bhagwaan (Railway Platform) […]
