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

So jaa baaba mere so jaa

Posted on: December 27, 2011


Lullabies are a much loved category of songs in Hindi movies. Most lullabies are sung by female singers as one would expect. But there are exceptions where male singers too have sung lullabies.

Here is a male lullaby, which is only the third male lullaby in this blog. This nice song is sung by Rafi and it is picturised on Om Shipuri, Jaya Bhaduri and Sanjeev Kumar. The movie is “Koshish” (1972), which was produced by Romu N Sippy and Raj N Sippy and directed by Gulzar. It was a sensitively handled movie telling the tale of a deaf and dumb couple played by Jaya Bhaduri and Sanjeev Kumar. The childless couple come across an abandoned child,and do not know what to do with the bady. Om Shivpuri comes forward, holds up the baby and sings this lullaby. It is a truly moving picturisation. Rafi has sung this song with feeling as one would expect.

The song is written by Gulzar. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

This song incidentally is the 1300th song of Rafi in this blog. And I think that this song is quite befitting as the 1300th song by Rafi.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

Mere baba re
hmm hmm hmm hmm
nanhe baabaa re
hmm hmm hmm hmm

so jaa baaba mere
so jaa
nanhe baabaa mere
so jaa…
loriyon ki baahen bulaaye tujhe
nindiya ki god mein sulaayen tujhe
baabaa re
so jaa baaba mere
so jaa…
nanhe baabaa mere
so jaa

honth soone hain bechaari maa ke
uski aankhon mein baaten bhari hain
honth soone hain bechaari maa ke
uski aankhon mein baaten bhari hain
meri aankhon se le le tu nindiya
aaa
meri aankhon mein raaten bhari hain
sapne le jaa re
le jaa re
le jaa re
so jaa baaba mere
so jaa
nanhe baabaa mere
so jaa

so gaya,
so gaya baba

tu sahaaron ki ungli pakadnaa
teri ungli pakad lengin raahen
tu sahaaron ki ungli pakadnaa
teri ungli pakad lengin raahen
aasmaan jhuk ke chhoomenga maathaa
aur zameen uthke degi duaayein
jiyo baaba re
baabaa re
mere baaba
so jaa baaba mere
so jaa
nanhe baabaa mere
so jaa…
loriyon ki baahein bulaayen tujhe
nindiya ki god mein sulaaye tujhe
baabaa re
so jaa baaba mere
so jaa
nanhe baaba mere
so jaa
so jaa
so jaa
so jaa

I don`t know exactly, but sanjeev and jaya are not childless couple in the movie, Om shivpuri is singing the song for sanjeev and jaya`s baby in the movie. Please correct me if I am wrong, It has been ages, since I have seen the movie, that`s why I am not able to recount the exact storyline of the movie.

Prakash ji,
You are right.They have a baby first,which dies accidentally.They have one more normal child after some time,who grows up and marries a deaf and dumb girl,like his parents.
Om Shivpuri is a blind person,but can hear and speak.He stays with them.He is trying to make the baby sleep.

this was a very lovely movie.
specially the scene where the deaf and mute couple are shown to b worried about whether the child is also like them. they have this rattle to which the child doesn’t respond and the childs doctor shows them that the rattle was empty thats y the child was not responding. and then the couple go on to clicking fingers near the child to see the child turning towards them.
even the last part was gr8 where it is shown the grown up son refuses to get married to a deaf girl.
what a master story teller Gulzar is.

Hearing this song after many years. Had watched this movie in the late seventies and liked it very much. After all a Gulzar Saab’s movie, and Sanjeev Kumar and Jaya’s memorable roles. Unforgettable.
Thanks Prakash ji – Atul ji.
