Kabhi ithhlaa ke chalte ho

Posted on: September 19, 2011


“Aapki Parchhaayiaan” (1964) was an Emkay Productions movie where EmKay stood for Mohan Kumar who was also the director of this movie. This movie had Dharmendra, Supriya Choudhary, Shashikala, Suresh, Nazir Hussain, Leela Chitnis, Om Prakash, Vijayalaxmi, Manorama etc in it.

Today this movie is remembered for some memorable music.

I have discussed three songs from this movie so far. Here is another song from this song. This song is alovly duet. It is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. The song is picturised as a “teasing cum expression of love” genre of song.

In the song, Dharmendra comments about the walk of Supriya Chaudhary which consistes of walking with an exxagerated sway of the hips for the benefit of Dharmendra and movie watcher. This kind of walk has been given descriptions like “ithhla ke chalna” and “bal khaa ke chalna”, which naturally has the intended effects on the target audience. How will the “duniya waale” survive this kind of “chaal”- wonders Dharmendra. Supriya Chaudhary, not to be outdone, tells him that she will continue to walk as she pleased, come what way. I can almost visualise the movie watcher of that era going “hear hear” in her support. Or may be the movie watchers of those days expressd their appreciations differently- in the form of appreciative whistles and catcalls. This was certainly the way of appreciating an actress in a movie in the pasts of India where I grew up. 🙂

This cute song is written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Atif M and that is how I became awre about the existence of this song.

Lyrics(Provided by Atif M)

kabhi ithla ke chalte ho
kabhi bal kha ke chalte ho
kabhi ithla ke chalte ho
kabhi bal kha ke chalte ho
bhala ji kaise jiyenge duniya wale
ho duniya wale
ho duniya wale
ho duniya wale
ho duniya wale
jo karna hai woh kar lo ji
chalenge hum to aise hi
hamara kya hai
marenge duniya waale
ho duniya wale
ho duniya wale
ho duniya wale
ho duniya wale

kabhi ithla ke chalte ho
kabhi bal kha ke chalte ho

teri shokh adaayen kya kehne
ho aaja pehna doon pyar ke gehne
teri shokh adaayen kya kehne
aaja pehna doon pyar ke gehne
tere pyar ke gehne maine pehne
to jaane mujhe kya kya kahenge duniya waale

kabhi ithla ke chalte ho
kabhi bal kha ke chalte ho
bhala ji kaise jiyenge duniya wale
kabhi ithla ke chalte ho
kabhi bal kha ke chalte ho

leja aankhen gulaabi gulaabi
aise ghoor na jaise ke sharaabi
leja aankhen gulaabi gulaabi
aise ghoor na jaise ke sharaabi

aisi aankhon ke jab maikhaane khule hain
phir to aa ke piyenge duniya wale
jo karna hai woh kar lo ji
chalenge hum to aise hi
hamara kya hai
marenge duniya wale

kabhi ithla ke chalte ho
kabhi bal kha ke chalte ho

apne qaidi ko de na rihaayi
o mujhe jeene na degi judaayi
apne qaidi ko de na rihaayi
o mujhe jeene na degi judaayi
toone aisa kaha to muskura muskura ke
tujhe chheda karenge duniya waale

kabhi ithla ke chalte ho
kabhi bal kha ke chalte ho
bhala ji kaise jiyenge duniya waale
jo karna hai woh kar lo ji
chalenge hum to aise hi
hamara kya hai marenge duniya wale

ho duniya wale ho duniya wale
ho duniya wale duniya wale
kabhi ithla ke chalte ho
kabhi bal kha ke chalte ho
bhala ji kaise jiyenge duniya wale

Atul ji,
SUPRIYA CHAUDARY,was essentially a Bengali film actress who was usually paired with Soumitra Chatterjee or Uttam Kumar.
She was born in Michkina,Burma in 1933.Her family migrated to Calcutta in 1945,after II world war.She was the youngest of 8 sisters and 3 brothers.
At the time of this movie-Aap ki Parchhaiyan-in 1964,she was already 31 years,while young Dharmendra was only 29 year old !

Thanks for this information. Indeed her pairing with Soumitra Chatterji and Uttam Kumar was legendary among Bangla movie buffs. And there were many Bangla movie buffs at the place where I grew up.
