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

Bholey bhaaaley insaanon ka iss duniyaa mein kaam nahin

Posted on: July 1, 2011


Hindi movies often have songs in which two men, both small time ruffians but with heart of gold would go around the town (Bombay) and sing a song. One well known song of this genre was Do bechaare binaa sahaare (Victoria number 203) .

As it turns out, this kind of songs were there in 1950s and 1960s as well. Here is a song of this genre from “Tu Nahin Aur Sahi” (1960). This song is sung by Rafi and it is picturised on Pradeep Kumar and Anwar Hussain. This must be a movie made on a shoe string budget, seeing that the movie makers could not afford two singers for this song. 🙂 Yes, both actors take turn to lip sync in Rafi’s voice in this song, while the actors are seen moving around in Bombay with famous Bombay landmarks visible in the background.

It is interesting to see how much cleaner and emptier the city looked half a century ago.

This song is written by Asad Bhopali. Music is composed by Ravi. and it seems to me that it has been quite a while when a song created by Asad Bhopali and Ravi was discussed in this blog.

So here is this nice less known song from half a century ago.


Song-Bholey bhaaley insaanon ka iss duniya mein kaam nahin (Tu Nahin Aur Sahi) (1960) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

bholey bhaaley insaanon ka iss duniyaa mein kaam nahin
koi na poochhey unko bhaiyya jinke palley daam nahin
bholey bhaaley insaanon ka iss duniyaa mein kaam nahin
koi na poochhey unko bhaiyya jinke palley daam nahin

kyun kisi ke aagey jhukna
kyun qadam badhaa ke rukna
mard wohi jo kabhi na teke
kisi ke aage ghutnaa
kyun kisi ke aagey jhukna
kyun qadam badhaa ke rukna
mard wohi jo kabhi na teke
kisi ke aage ghutnaa
apne hi baazuon pe
rakhna bharosa pyaare
jisne himmat haari
usko mila kabhi aaraam nahin
bholey bhaaley insaanon ka iss duniyaa mein kaam nahin
koi na poochhe unko bhaiyya jinke palley daam nahin

ye bholey bhaaley mukhdey
ye chaand ke naazuk tukdey
pyaar jataake qasmen khaake
dete sau sau dukhde
ye bholey bhaaley mukhdey
ye chaand ke naazuk tukdey
pyaar jataake qasmen khaake
dete sau sau dukhde
dil na lagaana inse
daaman bachaanaa inse
inke chakkar mein phansne ka
hai achchaa anjaam nahin
bholey bhaaley insaanon ka iss duniyaa mein kaam nahin
koi na poochhe unko bhaiyya jinke palley daam nahin
bholey bhaaley insaanon ka iss duniyaa mein kaam nahin
koi na poochhe unko bhaiyya jinke palley daam nahin

Atul ji,

Great find, hearing it for the first time today, and absolutely love it. I have the disc of this movie, but have not got around to seeing it yet. Listening to this song now prompts me to see it.

Thanks and rgds
Sudhir
