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

O babusaab o memsaab

Posted on: July 17, 2011


In Hindi movies, we have seen several songs of the “Roothhna-Manaanaa” (Sulking appeasing) genre where one partner (usually the male) tries to appease the sulking partner and succeeds just before the penultimate line in the song is to be sung. 😀

If it is the hero and heroine involved, then one of them invariably swallows his/ her pride and bursts into the song meant to bury the hatchet.
But the lesser actors playing the warring couple may not have the same maturity and in their case, they will need to be shown the errors of their ways. 😀 It is here that the good samaritan hero and heroine play the marriage counsellor and preach the value of love and understanding between couples.

Here is this fun “marriage counselling ” song from “Talaaq” (1958). The song is sung by Manna Dey and Asha Bhonsle and this song is lip synced by Rajendra Kumar and Kamini Kadam who sing this song for the benefit of a feuding couple who tend to run away from each other at the first available opportunity and they need to be pulled back together.

This fun song is written by Pradeep, who demonstates that he could not only right great patriotic, mythological and socially relevant songs, but that he could write such nice songs on marital relationship as well.

C Ramchandra has composed this lovely folk music based song. I became aware of this song for the first time only just now. This is a song that deserves to be much better known among music lovers.

Lyrics

o baabuu saab
o mem saab

aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
la la la la la la
o baabu saab
o mem saab
kyaa rakhaa is taqraar mein
zaraa to aankhen dekho milaa ke
badaa mazaa hai pyaar mein

are roothho na sister maan jaao mister
mil ke raho sansaar mein
zaraa to aankhen dekho milaa ke
badaa mazaa hai pyaar mein
o baabu saab
o mem saab
o baabu saab mem saab

achchhi nahin hai aapas ki anban
suno suno shriman jee
haan suno suno shreeman jee
ladnaa to madam hai ik ladakpan
ismein badaa nuqsaan jee
haan suno suno shreeman jee
kyun baithhe hat ke
mukhdaa palat ke
phir se bandho ik taar mein
zaraa to aankhen dekho milaa ke
badaa mazaa hai pyaar mein
o baabu saab
o mem saab
o baabu saab mem saab

miyaa aur biwi ke jhagdon ne raajaa
laakhon gharon ko ujaadaa
meethhi(?) shaitaani acchi na raani
ghar ko banaao naa akhaadaa
arre chhodo ye garmi aane do narmi
chhodo ye garmi aane do narmi
gusse ke teekhe khumaar mein
zaraa to aankhen dekho milaa ke
badaa mazaa hai pyaar mein
o baabu saab
o mem saab
o baabu saab mem saab

jeewan mein sukh se jo rehanaa hai to
gusse pe kuchh control karo
haan gusse pe kuchh control karo
apni akad pe break lagaao jee
jhoothaa badappan gol karo
zaraa to aankhen dekho milaa ke
badaa mazaa hai pyaar mein
o baabuu saab
o mem saab
o baabu saab mem saab

Looks like there is one more version where Rajendra Kumar and Kamini kadam are the warring couple. Here is the vdo.
