Mere roothhe huye balma

Posted on: August 31, 2012


“Baawre Nain” (1950) was an Ambitious pictures production. It was produced and directed by Kidar Sharma. The movie had Raj Kapoor, Geeta Bali, Cuckoo, Vijayalaxmi, Jaswant, Majnu, Nazira, Himmat Rai, Pesi Patel etc in it.

As many as seven songs from this movie have already been discussed in the past. That leaves two more songs from this movie to be discussed.

Here is one of these two songs. This song is sung by Rajkumari. It is picturised as a “roothhna -manaana” song on Geeta Bali and Raj Kapoor. Most songs of this genre show the lady sulking and the gentleman making reconciliatory noises. Here the roles are reversed. 🙂 My observation on the usual Roothna -manaana songs is that the sulking lady begins to respond by the penultimate line of the last stanza of the song. My observations seemingly gets validated in this song too. 🙂

Kidar Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Khyati Bhatt.


Song-Mere roothhe huye balma (Baawre Nain)(1950) Singer-Rajkumari, Lyrics-Kidar Sharma, MD-Roshan

Lyrics(Provided by Khyati Bhatt)

mere roothe huye balma
aji roothe huye chanda
chalo ab maan bhi jaao
hamaare paas to aao

mere roothe huye balma
aji roothe huye chanda
chalo ab maan bhi jaao
hamaare paas to aao

meri gustaakh nazren jhuk gayin
ab to taras khaao
chalo ab maan bhi jaao
hamaare paas to aao

mere roothe huye balma
aji roothe huye chanda
aji roothe huye chanda
chalo ab maan bhi jaao
hamare paas to aao

jawaani mein jawaan nazaron se
nazren lad hi jaati hain
jawaani mein jawaan nazaron se
nazare lad hi jaati hain
main samjaa loongi nazron ko
main samjaa loongi nazron ko
tum apne dil ko samajaawo
chalo ab maan bhi jaao
hamaare paas to aao

mere ruthe huye balma
aji roothe huye chanda
aji roothe huye chanda
chalo ab maan bhi jaao
hamaare paas to aao

tumhaare reshmi hothon se
jo nikla hai wo sach hai
tumhaare reshmi hothon se
jo nikla hai wo sach hai
jo main neechi nazar se keh gayi
wo bhi samajh jaao
chalo ab maan bhi jaao
hamaare paas to aao

mere ruthe huye balma
aji roothe huye chanda
aji roothe huye chanda
chalo ab maan bhi jaao
hamare paas to aao

jo aise munh banaawo aur
bhi lagte ho tum pyaare
jo aise munh banaawo aur
bhi lagate ho tum pyaare
nayi dulhan saje ho tum
chalo ghoonghat me sharmaao
chalo ab maan bhi jaao
hamare paas to aao
mere ruthe huye balma
aji roothe huye chanda
aji roothe huye chanda
chalo ab maan bhi jaao
hamaare paas to aao

Last stanza is like questioning and challenging his manhood. Almost like Lady Macbeth, who taunts her husband by calling him with so many other names. She is only interest in getting the final result…by any way, shape or mean 🙂

Nice but quick pace, lack of emotion is taking away from the melodic nature of this song.

This song is light hearted. If Raj kapoor was not there in the frame, i would have thought Geeta Bali is singing for Johnny Walker. Except, Johnny walker would have joined her to make a duet.

I have not read or seen Macbeth. There has to be hindi film inspired by it, which we can connect to.

Oh, Mcbeth story was in my head during college years. Don’t remember much..so many interlude names Mcbeth, Malcolm, Mcduff…and Mrs. Mcbeth…She always wanted her husband to be a king…so she was calling him with all sort of names..you coward, you weak, you are not a man…even I can do better than you..I guess….that’s a trick to make husband ambitious 🙂
Mcbeth is a story of political ploy to overthrow the regime, its’ not a romantic story.

Vishal Bhardwaj’s Maqbool (Irrfan Khan, Tabu, Pankaj Kapur, Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri) is indian adaptation of Macbeth.

bluefire ji,

Thanks for the imbd link and the movie. For once, the movie turns out be one I have seen earlier. Our indian inspired movies are enough for me, i think. Shakespear has never attracted me, for i think it was more macabre than dramatic. This just an impression and my opinion 😦 . I might have tried reading some at some point, to think like this.

Another adaptation is of ‘Othello” again by Vishal Bharadwaj – “Omkara(2006)”.

Vishal and his mentor Gulzar seems to be involved with many Shakespeare adaptations; Do Dooni Chaar (1968)/Angoor(1982) for Gulzar (Comedy of errors). I have yet to watch Kishore Sahu’s Hamlet (1954). I did like Kenneth Branagh’s 1994 version though. Need to watch The Last Lear of Amitabh also.

bluefireji,
lots of homework for this weekends 🙂 Thanks.
Well you know, the latest Shakespeare wasn’t Shakespeare theory
the Oxford claims that there was no body name Shakespeare during that time. And who they believe was Shakespeare, he was a son of an low level-uneducated tradesman and his son never went to school and was an alcoholic man even his death went unnoticed.
And his picture is not even his picture that we all have seen.
Now my question: why this theory has to come now? why wasn’t the time when I was in school…that way, I wouldn’t have to read/study all his fictions 🙂
