Uthhaao jaam chalo donon saath saath piyen

Posted on: October 14, 2011


This article is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

‘Ek Sapera Ek Lutera’ (1965) is a musical bonanza from the pen of Asad Bhopali and the baton of Usha Khanna. The film itself is a B grade production, and did just OK on the box office. Produced under the banner of Dimple Films, Bombay and directed by Naresh Kumar. The star cast is a typical B grade lineup for those times, featuring Feroze Khan, Kumkum, Uma Dutt, Mumtaz Begum, Shyam Kumar, Indira Bansal, Tuntun, Ramavtar, Rashid Khan, Daljeet, Sheikh, Sunder, Gopal Ralhan, Rani, Madhu Apte, Krishna, Khairaati etc. The film is a costume action cum romance drama, that is based on the life style and culture of snake charmers and gypsies.

The film has seven songs, four of which are already posted here. Here is a fifth offering from this film, and what a wonderful gem of a song by Suman Kalyanpur. The setting for this song is royal, and the song is performed on the screen by Kum Kum. She is singing a song of a ‘saaqi’, a song of drinking and getting lost in the stupor of love. The recipient of her longings and emotions is Feroze Khan, who already appears to be somewhat drunk, and not in the need of any more to be poured down. Kum Kum is playing the enchantress, softly and lovingly persuading Feroze to drink some more.

There is another actor in the frame, who seems to be a companion of Feroze Khan. He is not drinking, but is happily observing the ongoing efforts of the duo busy in the process of getting more drunk. Apparently, this person is in disguise, considering his hair and moustache. I request knowledgeable readers to help identify this actor.

Enjoy another wonderful piece of music from Asad Bhopali and Usha Khanna.

utthaao jaam chalo, dono saath saath piyen
tamaam raat piyen, tamaam raat piyen

O my lover, pick up your goblet, lets both drink together to this night
We shall drink all night, we shall drink till this night is

koi khayaal koi fiqr, koi gham na karo
tum apni shokh jawaani se, yun sitam na karo
berukhi chhod bhi do, taubaa ko tod bhi do

Cast away all thoughts, all worries, all sorrows on this night
Be kind to your handsome youth, do treat it with disdain and callousness

abhi to raat ke chehre pe noor aayaa hai
abhi to aankhon mein halkaa suroor aayaa hai
itne madhosh na ho itney khaamosh na ho

The night is still in infancy, and the glimmer of darkness is just setting in
The wine and its stupor is still to take hold, the color of intoxication is just beginning to show in the eyes
Don’t be so silent already, don’t be so drunk already

idhar sharaab udhar madd-bhari nazar ka nashaa
milen jo donon to ho jaaye umra bhar kaa nashaa
daur par daur chaley haan zaraa aur chaley

The wine has its own flavor, and then there is the intoxication from your eyes
Getting them together – and I would happily be drunk for the rest of my life
Let there be another round (of drinking), and yet another. . .

Lyrics

uthhaao jaam chalo
dono saath saath piyen
uthhaao jaam chalo
dono saath saath piyen
tamaam raat piyen
tamaam raat piyen
uthhaao jaam chalo
dono saath saath piyen
dono saath saath piyen

koi khayaal koi fiqr
koi gham na karo
tum apni shokh jawaani se
yoon sitam na karo
berukhi chhod bhi do
taubaa ko tod bhi do
hic
uthhaao jaam chalo
dono saath saath piyen
dono saath saath piyen

abhi to raat ke chehre
pe noor aayaa hai
abhi to aankhon mein
halkaa suroor aayaa hai
itne madhosh na ho
aise khaamosh na ho
hic
uthhaao jaam chalo
dono saath saath piyen
dono saath saath piyen

idhar sharaab udhar
madd-bhari nazar ka nashaa
milen jo donon to ho jaaye
umr bhar kaa nashaa
daur par daur chaley
haan zaraa aur chaley
hic
uthhaao jaam chalo
dono saath saath piyen
tamaam raat piyen
tamaam raat piyen
uthhaao jaam chalo
dono saath saath piyen
dono saath saath piyen
hic

Dear Atul, may I extend my appreciation and gratitude to you for bringing so much solace in our life through these songs. I must admit that your site is one of its own kind,specially the write up for every song (Synopsis). Now one request. The song Uthhao Jaam Chalo, is not available on your site. Can you re-post it. Best regards

The song was uploaded by someone in youtube and that account has been suspended. I will need to look for some other link to provide.

Atulji,
The other actor in disguise is none other than firoz khan himself. There is double role of firoz khan as Mohan and Vijay Pratap Singh.
