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

Hawaa ke saath saath ghataa ke sang sang

Posted on: July 3, 2010


I sincerely believe that parents should take care of their kids and they should not deprive them of their basic requirements. And what did a kid like me want in 1972 as his basic requirement ? I badly wanted to see “Seeta Aur Geeta” (1972). The songs of this movie had such a pied piper like effect that everyone was attracted towards the movie halls screening this movie. My elders too agreed to take me to watch this movie and I was so happy with the prospect of being able to watch the movie and to have the best moment of my life till then.

But guess what ! When we reached the movie hall (it was a spanking new movie hall too, inaugurated a few weeks ago, with the same movie), the movie was withdrawn, and on its place, a movie called “Zindagi Zindagi” was being shown. We watched that movie. What a big letdown ! You cannot treat a kid of tender years like that. It leaves mental scars on him from which he cannot recover throughout his life, I tell you. It stunts his growth. To this day, I have not grown up to a mental age of more than 12, and I squarely blame my inability to watch “Seeta Aur Geeta” for that.

What fabulous music this movie had ! Even to this date, music of this movie gives me goosebumps.

The song that I found the most irresistible of them all was the song “Hawaa ke saath saath ghataa ke sang sang”. Of course, other songs of the movie were just as fabulous.

Greta (Memsaab) recently wrote an article on the theme music of Bollywood movies, and the theme music of this movie “Seeta Aur Geeta” (1972) was also mentioned, and I was once again reminded of my deprived childhood when I could not watch this movie.

There is no way I will like to deprive the readers of this blog from the finest songs of yesteryears, and here is this song that is one of the most influential songs of its time. At least that is how it appeared to me at that time. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is picturised on Sanjeev Kumar and Hema Malini. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist and R D Burman is the music director.

Reading the above list of creme de la creme of the who is who of Bollywood at that time gives us an idea of what a rage this song must have been. I who lived through that age can vouch for the fact that this song was sheer magic, in addition to being sheer music.


Song-Hawaa ke saath saath ghataa ke sang sang (Seeta Aur Geeta) (1972) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

ae ae ae ae hahaha

hawaa ke saath saath
arre re re
ghataa ke sang sang
sambhalna
hawaa ke saath saath
ghataa ke sang sang
o saathi chal
mujhe leke saath chal tu
yoon hi din-raat chal tu
sambhal mere saath chal tu
le haathon mein haath chal tu
o saathi chal
mujhe leke saath chal tu
yoon hi din-raat chal tu
sambhal mere saath chal tu
le haathon mein haath chal tu
o saathi chal

ek to ye mausam hai badaa suhaanaa
lalalala
lalalalal
lalalalala

ek to ye mausam hai badaa suhaanaa
papapapa
uspe apnaa to ye dil bhi hai deewaanaa
ho
parbat se aake na takraa jaanaa
tu banke baadal
o saathi chal
mujhe leke saath chal tu
yoon hi din-raat chal tu
sambhal mere saath chal tu
le haathon mein haath chal tu
o saathi chal

hansti hai ye duniyaa to hansne de
lalalallaa
lalalala
lalalallaa
hansti hai ye duniyaa to hansne de
arre naagan banake is rut ko dansne de
ho
mujhko apni aankhon mein basne de
banake kaajal
o saathi chal
mujhe leke saath chal tu
yoon hi din-raat chal tu
sambhal mere saath chal tu
le haathon mein haath chal tu
o saathi chal

aa aa aa aa
ouch
apni reshmi zulfein lahraane de
lalala
lalala
lalala
ahaa
apni reshmi zulfein lahraane de
papapapa
mujhko apni baanhon mein aane de
thak gayi aaj bahut main ab jaane de naa
milenge phir kal
o saathi chal
lalalala
lalalala
uuuu
lalalalla
lalalala
he he he he
lalalala
he he he he
lalalala
ho ho ho ho
lalalala

What a lovely intro. It had me ROFL all through. 🙂
I love these intros of yours.

Lovely song too. Seeta aur Greta bring back memories.
Oops, that should be Seeta aur Geeta. 😉

Now that you have described it so charmingly, I’ve started liking the picturization too. I’ve been staying away from this song on Youtube–didn’t like flabby Sanjeev bhai in this. Hema though is so pretty. In 1972, I might have gone to a movie theatre and seen Hema (in Nigeria which is where we lived then) but I was too young to recognize the different actresses–they all looked very pretty to me and so did my mom.

LOL!!! That did leave a big scar Atul…I know I’ve heard you tell the Seeta Aur Geeta story before. Stunted at age 12 indeed 🙂 Have you watched it since then? Or like most films just watch the songs? Such a great film (and Raja, I love the idea of being half of Seeta Aur…)

Greta you should get a film poster made reading “Seeta Aur Greta”. I once read about a film poster maker in Delhi who makes such custom built posters.

No, I have not watched this movie till today. Watching the movie now cannot be adequate compensation for watching the movie then.

Btw, I had exactly the same experience with Geet Gaata Chal. My friends and I had gone to see this movie (it was the evening show, our exams had got over that morning). When we got there, the movie – which had been running for several weeks – had got replaced that day by Barood (Rishi Kapoor, Shoma Anand).
I finally saw Geet Gaata Chal only around 1999 or so.

Sophy, You may have watched this movie and you do not eve remember it ! Indeed one does not appreciate things that one gets without trying. 😉

That made a great story, Atul! I had a similar experience, we went to see some Hindi movie that was a big hit at the time in ’74 (can’t even remember the name of the movie now!), found ourselves watching a Kannada movie instead (this happened in Bangalore) and my mother was the only one in our family who could understand Kannada at the time, so she was busy translating it for us the entire time! Wonder what the people around us must have thought or probably said aloud!

I agree with Raja, Seeta aur Greta sounds much more interesting than the boring Seeta aur Geeta!

Yes, one of these days some producers should think of making a movie with this title. 🙂

Nowadays there are crossover movies being made (like Kites). So you never know. And this storyline (Seeta aur Geeta, Chaalbaaz) is a big hit and can be safely repeated every 2 decades for new audiences. 🙂

There was a hit movie in 1974, directed by Sadhana, called “Geeta Mera Naam”. This can also now have a “Greta Mera Naam” version. 😉

hi gang of the 70s
everyone seems to have similar experiences in that era when the movies were seen only in the theatres. i feel that the best years for us who were kids then was from 1969 to 1975. all our favourites were young and even if they sneezed we felt kicked about that (my peevesie’s words)
i was with a group of adults all of who were around 30s and 40s when i went to see this movie and i am told by every single person in this group, to this day, that i joined Hema Malini in calling Manorama(she plays Hema’s chachi in this movie) “mothi” in te police station scene.
anyway its nice of ZEE tv to show this movie and chaalbaaz on alternate weekends
