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

Patli qamar tirchhi nazar

Posted on: March 9, 2011


“Choron Ka chor” (1970) was a B grade movie starring Dara Singh,Shabnam,Madan Puri,Agha,Bhagwan, Roopesh Kumar etc.

The movie was B grade, but the music of this movie was absolutely a grade. I have discussed one song from this movie. Here is a wonderful song from this movie. It is a “roadside tamasha” song where two dancers (Bhagwan and Meena T) are singing and dancing and public have gathered round them to watch their performance.

The song is extremely catchy. It is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Sharda. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist and Dattaram is the music director. This is a paisa wasool song and dance, as Hindi movie watchers of yesteryears, watching movies from the frontstall, would say.

A word about the music director. The music director is called Dattaram, who was a long term assistant of Shankar Jaikishan. He is well known among musical circles for his creation called Dattaram theka (Dattarm’s beat) which can be heard in many Shankar Jaikishan compositions.

Dattaram (full name Dattram Wadkar) hailed from Goa. Though he gave music as independent music director in around 19 movies, he was most comfortable assisting Shankar Jaikishan. After Shankar Jaikishan’s era came to an end, Dattram too found assignments drying up for him. He returned back to Goa and there he died in 2007, at the age of 79.

There is much confusio among music lovers about certain similar sounding names, viz Dattaram,N Datta, Dattarm Naik etc. Most of this confusion is because of the fact that some uninformed people have posted incorrect information, which have been dutifully copied by others and that incorrect information keeps getting circulated.

As mentioned above, Dattram (or Dattram Wadkar) was one music director. N Datta (actual name Datta Naik) was another music director. He was assistant to S D Burman in early 1950s and he later became an independent music director. He composed music in over 50 movies. He died in 1987. Like Dattram, N Datta too was from Goa.

Some sites have mixed up these two names and extrapolated and have come up with names that are figments of their imagination. These sites have come up with names like Dattaram Naik and Narayan Datta. There were never any music directors with these names, though some well known sites use these names aginst songs that are actually created by Dattaram and N Datta.

Here is this song, which was created by Dattaram. Do not believe those sites who give some other name as music director for this song.


Song-Patli qamar tirchhi nazar (Choron Ka Chor) (1970) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Sharda, Lyrics-Faarooque Kaiser, MD-Dattaram

Lyrics

haa haa
maine kahaa bandhu
zara idhar to dekho
patli qamar tirchhi nazar
kabhi idhar kabhi udhar
aayi gawaalan ki chhori
hoy dekho
aayi gawaalan ki chhori
hoy
aayi gawaalan ki chhori
hoy dekho
aayi gawaalan ki chhori
hoy
patli qamar tirchhi nazar
kabhi idhar kabhi udhar
aayi gawaalan ki chhori
hoy dekho
aayi gawaalan ki chhori

tere nainaa ye teekhe kajraare
achhaa
raah chalte ko karen hain ishaare
ye lachakna matakna tadapna
hoy hoy
toone seekhaa kahaan batlaa re
haan
ab to ye dil huaa deewaanaa
sunke seeti meri chali aanaa
arre palat
patli qamar tirchhi nazar
kabhi idhar kabhi udhar
aayi gawaalan ki chhori
hoy dekho
aayi gawaalan ki chhori
aayi gawaalan ki chhori
hoy dekho
aayi gawaalan ki chhori

muskuraanaa lajaanaa sataanaa
mujhko aataa hai dil ka churaanaa
haan jee
tumko ye pyaar mahanga padega
mujhko sainyya nahin aajmaanaa
jisko chaahoon banaaun deewaanaa
mere aage saanwariyaa na aanaa
kyaa samjhe
haan samjhe
patli qamar tirchhi nazar
kabhi idhar kabhi udhar
aayi gawalan ki chhori
hoy dekho
aayi gawalan ki chhori
hoy hoy hoy
aayi gawalan ki chhori
hoy dekho
aayi gawalan ki chhori

har nazar pe nazar hai hamaari
ho jaante hain adaayen tumhaari
tum na samjhoge ye beqaraari
aage panchhi hai peechhe shikaari
haan
yaad rakho na hamse takraanaa
arre tumne shaayad hamen nahin jaanaa
jaanaa
haan haan
arre waah waah
patli qamar tirchhi nazar
kabhi idhar kabhi udhar
aayi gawaalan ki chhori
hoy dekho
aayi gawaalan ki chhori
hoy
aayi gawaalan ki chhori
hoy dekho
aayi gawaalan ki chhori

When I saw the song title, right away I thought of the song “patli qamar hain tirchhi nazar hain” from Barsaat. In fact I thought Atul was referring to that song.

So neither it was that song, nor it is that of S-J, nor composed by Shailendra. But it retains a bit of connection with the unit, in that it was composed by Datta, who was from the S-J family of assistants who became MD’s themselves.
