Kaali palak teri gori

Posted on: September 30, 2010


People these days lament about the degradation in the quality of Hindi movie music today. And as example of exemplary music, the cite the eras of 1950s to 1970s. But I tell you, when I was growing up in that era,then I felt exactly the same way- that 1970s had seen a degradation in the quality of songs vis a vis songs of late 1960s.

To my mind, songs of 1970s were low class. For instance, I found the songs of “Do Chor” (1972) quite low brow. And to this date, when the songs of “Do Chor” (1972) are regarded as classics, I have difficulty revising my original view about the songs of this movie.

My personal prejudice aside, here is a song from this movie which was regarded as a chaalu song (by me at least), but which is now regarded as a timeless classic.

This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata. It is picturised on Dharmendra and Tanuja (known to younger generation as the father of Bobby Deol and mother of Kajol, respectively). Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist and R D Burman composed the song.

The picturisation of this song is too advanced and “bold” by the standards of Indian public and Indian censors of that time. It shows Tanuja in a bathrobe after taking her bath and singing this romantic song with Dharmendra and the lyrics of the song do not leave any ambiguity about their intentions.

So, here is this song- a chaalu song turned classic song from “Do Chor” (1972).

Lyrics

he he
hmm hmm
hmm hmm
kaali palak teri gori
khulne lagi hai thodi-thodi
ek chorni ek chor ke ghar
karne chali hai chori
ho chori
kaali palak piyaa mori
ho khulne lagi hai thodi-thodi
ek chorni ek chor ke ghar
karne chali hai chori
ho chori
kaali palak piyaa mori

aayegi baandh ke paayal
tu honth dabaaye
badan ko churaaye
naazuk qamar se lagaaye
adaa ki kataari zaalimaa
pheregi dheere-dheere
tu mere gale par
ye baanhon ke khanjar
jaayegi dil meraa lekar
samajh ke anaadi baalmaa
roz raat ko
yoon hi baandhegi
laton ki dori
ho dori
kaali palak teri gori
ho
khulne lagi hai thodi-thodi
ek chorni ek chor ke ghar
karne chali hai chori
ho chori
kaali palak piyaa mori

na to main dor se baandhoon
naa jaal bichhaaun
na teer chalaaun
naazuk qamar se lagaaun
chhuri na kataari saajnaa
o sajnaa
main to teraa dil loongi
tujhise chhupaa ke
nazar ko bachaa ke
yoon hi zaraa muskaa ke kahoongi
anaadi saajnaa
roz raat ko tere ghar hogi
teri chori ho chori
kaali palak piyaa mori
ho khulne lagi hai thodi-thodi
ek chorni ek chor ke ghar
karne chali hai chori
ho chori
kaali palak teri gori

hmm hmm
hmm hmm
hmm hmm
achchhi huyi meri chori
ke ek dil khoyaa to ek dil paayaa
aise koi paas aayaa
ki aa gayaa lutne kaa mazaa
achchi teri meri jodi
ke lut gaye dono
ke bas gaye dono
hans ke lipat gaye donon
huaa jab waadaa pyaar kaa
roz raat ko milenge
chandaa aur chakori
chakori
kaali palak teri gori
khulne lagi hai thodi thodi
ek chorni ek chor ke ghar
karne chali hai chori
