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

Bholi soorat dil ke khote

Posted on: July 12, 2010


It was in late 1940s and early 1950s that Indian movie music was discovering new sources of inspirations for its songs, apart from classical music. These new sources of inspiration being Indian folk music and western music.

C Ramchandra was one music director whose music contained elements of both these sources. It is he, who composed western tunes like say “Aana meri jaan sunday ke sunday” and on the other hand he drew heavily from Indian folk music also.

“Albela” (1952) is one movie where we can see western music influenced songs as well as Indian folk music based songs. The western music influenced song is Shola jo bhadke dil mera dhadke(Albela ), which continued to inspire imitations in India even today.

Here is an example of a lovely folk music based song from the same movie. It is the song “Bholi soorat dil ke khote naam bade aur darshan chhote”. This song is sung by C Ramchandra himself along with Lata. It is picturised on Bhagwan, Geeta Bali and others. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist.

This foot tapping song, like several other songs of this movie has gone on to become a timeless classic.


song-Bholi soorat dil ke khote naam bade aur darshan chhote (Albela)(1952) Singers-C Ramchandra, Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

bholi soorat dil ke khote
naam bade aur darshan chhote
darshan chhote
bholi soorat dil ke khote
naam bade aur darshan chhote
darshan chhote

ho ho ho ho ho
naye zamaane ke ye chhailaa,
ujle kapde dil hai mailaa
ho ho ho ho
naye zamaane ke ye chhailaa,
ujle kapde dil hai mailaa
rang-birangi inki tie,
ghar mein lekin kadki chhaayi
kadki chhaayi, kadki chhaayi, kadki chhaayii
rang-birangi inki tiei, ghar mein lekin kadki chhaayi
fashion mein dil inke khote
naam bade aur darshan chhote
darshan chhote
bholi soorat dil ke khote
naam bade aur darshan chhote
darshan chhote

naye zamaane ki ye naari
oonchi sandal baanki saadi
naye zamaane ki ye naari
oonchi sandal baanki saadi
nainon mein kajraa honthon pe laali
haath mein kangan kaan mein baali,
kaan mein baali
nainon mein kajraa honthon pe laali
nakhre bade mote mote,
naam bade aur darshan chhote
darshan chhote
bholi soorat dil ke khote
naam bade aur darshan chhote
darshan chhote

husn aur ishq ki ye ladaayi,
shuru se jag mein hoti aayi
naa koyi jeete naa koyi haare,
aji kyun na phir mil jaayen pyaare
na tum bade na ham chhote
naam bade aur darshan chhote
darshan chhote
bholi soorat dil ke khote
naam bade aur darshan chhote
darshan chhote
bholi soorat dil ke khote
naam bade aur darshan chhote
darshan chhote
