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

Ghar jaayegi tar jaayegi

Posted on: September 16, 2010


“Khushboo” (1975) was a movie which was a social drama which meant that it was a movie sans “maar dhaad” (fights) that had become the norm those days.

Such movies had their own audience. The characters of these movies would live in rural India and lead ordinary lives. These movies showed that it was possible to make entertaining movies on the lives of ordinary village folks as well. In fact, if I am not wrong, I think this movie was based on a Bangla novel.

I am not much familiar with the story line but I know that this movie was critically acclaimed. And this movie was a reasonable commercial success too.

The songs of this movie were delightful to listen to. R D Burman, who would create music to dazzle the senses in “maar dhaad” movies would create music to touch the audiences’ heart strings in movies like ‘Khushboo”.

Here is a song from this movie. Here Hema Malini, playing a village belle and fantasizing how it would be like to be a bride is singing her fantasy in the form of a song. Before singing her private fantasies, she has ensured that her younger brother (played by Master Raju) is sound asleep.

Gulzar has come up with superb lyrics, as always. His mastery and word play (difficult to translate) can be seen in this song in full glory. Asha Bhonsle has sung this song superbly, and as mentioned earlier, R D Burman’s music is simply wonderful.

The song ends on a cute note. As Hema Malini is ending the song, master Raju opens his eyes and completes the line for Hema. and Hema is scandalised and shocked to realisethat his kid brother was listening to her singing all this time ! Well, kids are smarter than grown ups think.

Moral of the song- ensure that kids are actually asleep before entertaining any romantic thoughts, and secondly do not implement your romantic thoughts loud enough to wake them up. 😀


Song-Ghar jaayegi tar jaayegi (Khushboo) (1975) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

ghar jaayegi tar jaayegi
ho doliyaan chadh jaayegi
ho ho ho
ghar jaayegi tar jaayegi
ho doliyaan chadh jaayegi
ho ho ho
mehendi lagaayke re kaajal sajaayke re
dulhaniyaa mar jaayegi
o o o dulhaniyaa mar jaayegi
ghar jaayegi tar jaayegi
ho doliyaan chadh jaayegi
ho ho ho
mehandi lagaayke re kaajal sajaayke re
dulhaniyaa mar jaayegi
ho ho ho dulhaniyaa mar jaayegi

dheere dheere leke chalnaa
aangan se nikalnaa
koi dekhe naa dulhan ko gali mein
ho ankhiyaan jhukaaye huye
ghunghtaa giraaye huye
mukhdaa chhupaaye huye chali main
dheere dheere leke chalnaa
aangan se nikalnaa
koi dekhe naa dulhan ko gali mein
ho ankhiyaan jhukaaye huye
ghunghtaa giraaye huye
mukhdaa chhupaaye huye chali main
jaayegi ghar jaayegi tar jaayegi
ho ghar jaayegi tar jaayegi
ho doliyaan chadh jaayegi
ho ho ho
mehandi lagaayake re kaajal sajaayke re
dulhaniyaa mar jaayegi
ho o o dulhaniyaa mar jaayegi

mehandi mehandi kheli thi main
teri hi saheli thi main
toone jo Kusum ko chunaa thaa
ho toone meraa naam kabhi
aankhon se bulaayaa nahin
maine jaane kaise sunaa thaa
mehandi mehandi kheli thi main
teri hi saheli thi main
toone jo Kusum ko chunaa thaa
ho toone meraa naam kabhi
aankhon se bulaayaa nahin
maine jaane kaise sunaa thaa
jaayegi ghar jaayegi
laa laa laa
ho ghar jaayegi tar jaayegi
ho doliyaan chadh jaayegi
ho ho ho
mehendi lagaayke re kaajal sajaayke re
dulhaniyaa tar jaayegi
o o o o dulhaniyaa
mar jaayegi

hullo atul
thanks for a song from my favorite poet. yes i choose to call “Gulzar” a Poet rather that a lyricist.
and just coz u said u r unfamiliar with the story here goes:
this is a story of child marriage. Hema is married to Jeetendra in childhood and is sent back to her mother’s place for some reason. but she is still in love with her groom who has mean while grown up to be the doctor for all the neighbouring villages. and during his student days he marries Sharmila Tagore (yes she is there in this movie as a “GUEST APPEARANCE”) and this Master Raju is their son. Hema is aware of all this and also forgives Jeetendra the “second” marriage when she gets to know of the circumstances of the wedding. and convieniently Sharmila has died in the course of “child birth” paving the way for Hema to aspire that she will go back some day to her husbands’ home. which happens in the end to give us a happy ending.

Thanks for the story. Yes, it is a very convenient story indeed, one that condones child marriage as well as second marriage, and still ensures a happy ending.

See, I’ve made a start in my resolve to visit your blog more frequently! 😉

I saw Khushboo recently, and liked the film a lot – one of the few Jeetendra films that I like. Gentle and real, and Hema Malini is superb – her acting is excellent, and the way her character is etched, there’s something almost poetic about it.

I also like Bechaara dil kya kare from this film. Light-hearted and sweet.

Oh, oh LOVE this film, and this song, and the one Dusted Off mentioned with Farida Jalal. Hema was absolutely lovely here—I’ve never understood why she got a bad rap as an actress? Perhaps her beauty distracted? I think she’s done some wonderful stuff right from her early days through the mid to late 70s.

But NOT Jeetendra 😦 I just can’t get behind him somehow though am sure he’s a nice guy and all. Especially in the haunting ‘O majhi re’ song. I always get a shock when I see Jeetendra in it because it so sounds like Kishore singing for Rajesh Khanna!

You’re right Atul, this was based on a Sarat Chandra Chatterjee story ‘Pandit Moshai’ which had been made into a 1951 Bengali film I believe. Here’s a nice write-up of ‘Khushboo’ by the veteran Dinesh Raheja.

Thanks for your information.
Yo do not like “O maajhi re” song on Jeetendra ? I thought he did alright in this movie.
