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

Choodi dheere pehna o choodi waali

Posted on: June 24, 2011


Obscure movies can sometimes (read often) throw up some pleasant surprises in the form of songs that one did not know existed ! I keep discovering many forgotten gems almost on a daily basis.

Here is a wonderful discovery from a movie called “Dahej” (1950). The picturisation is as nice as the song itself. The picturisation shows Jayshree, the would be bride, surrounded by her sahelis and a choodiwaali (Hansa Wadkar) bringing chhoodis for her. It may indeed be news for the prsent generation, but choodiwaali in those days was quite an important salesperson, especially in rural and semi rural areas a few decades ago, and they had loyal clientele in many households, which they would visit regularly.

The song shows Kantakumari lip syncing in Shamshad Begam’s voice whereas Jayshree and Hansa Wadkar sing in their own voices. The delightful lyrics are penned by Shams Lucknowi. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

What a gem of a song it is !


Song-Choodi dhheere pehna o chhoodi waali (Dahej) (1950) Singers-Shamshad Begam, Jayshree, Hansa Wadkar,Lyrics-Shams Lucknowi,MD-Vasant Desai

Lyrics

uyi
choodi dhheere
ho choodi dhheere pehna o chhoodi waali ho
kahin munna sa dil na dhhachke
ho kahin munna sa dil na dhhachke
haay
zaraa dhheere dhheere dhheere
zaraa dhheere dhheere dhheere
choodhi dheere

chun chun chun bole
chun chun chun bole
suhaagan ki chhodi
shaad rahe dulha dulhan ki jodi
dulha dulhan ki jodi
dulha dulhan ki jodi
dulha dulhan ki jodi
khoob mehandi
khoob mehandi chadhi hai rach rach ke
uyi
zaraa dhheere dhheere dhheere
zaraa dhheere dhheere dhheere
choodhi dheere

tum to dikhaati ho bi pehalwaani
ho bi pehalwaani
tum to dikhaati ho bi pehalwaani
didi hamaari huyi thhi sayaani
didi hamaari huyi thhi sayaani
dekhoa naazuk
ho dekho naazuk kalaayi na kazke
haay
zaraa dhheere dhheere dhheere
zaraa dhheere dhheere dhheere
choodi dhheere
ho choodi dhheere pehna o chhoodi waali ho
kahin munna sa dil na dhhachke
ho kahin munna sa dil na dhhachke

ho ye mubaarak
shahaani chhoodiyan
ho ye mubaarak
shahaani chhoodiyan
suhaagan ki hain ye nishaani chhoodiyaan
suhaagan ki hain ye nishaani chhoodiyaan
raho duniya ki
ho raho duniya ki nazron se bachke
zaraa dhheere dhheere dhheere
zaraa dhheere dhheere dhheere

ho ho ho ho
ho ho ho ho ho ho
ho ho ho ho
haay
