Ham to albele mazdoor

Posted on: September 15, 2012


“Bandhan”(1940) was a Bombay Talkies production. It had Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis in lead roles in this movie.

As many as four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is another song from this movie. This song is picturised on a few labourers who are singing this song while doing their work. The song is sung by Kavi Pradeep and chorus. One can also hear a full throated female voice which is uncredited. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this female voice which I feel I have heard before in a few songs discussed in this blog itself.

The song is written by Kavi Pradeep. Music is composed by Saraswati Devi.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

ham to albele mazdoor
ghazab hamaari jaadugari
ham to albele mazdoor
ghazab hamari jaadugari
jadugari bhai jadugari
ghazab hamaari jadugari
ham to albele mazdoor
ghazab hamaari jadugari

kaho to fauran mahal bana den
paas mein badhiya baug lagaa de
kaho to fauran mahal bana den
paas mein badhiya baug lagaa den
jahaan pe chham-chham naache saloni
jahaan pe chham-chham naache saloni
koi chhabeeli pari
raam ho jaadugari
koi chhabeeli pari
raam ho jaadugari
ham to albele mazdoor
ghazab hamaari jadugari

ham patthar mein praan jagaa den
ham mitti mein jeevan laa den
ham patthar mein praan jagaa den
ham mitti mein jeevan laa den
nakhre wali daliya mori
nakhre wali daliya mori
nakhre wali daliya mori
badi gumaan bhari
ram ho jadugari
haay badi gumaan bhari
ram ho jadugari
haay badi gumaan bhari
ram ho jadugari
ham to albele mazdoor
ghazab hamaari jaadugari

It seems to be one of the very first songs depicting the dignity and might of labor. Many movie lovers in this country have a wrong notion about kavi Pradeep as being a lyricist having a rightist bent of mind. It may not necessarily be so. Even in his lyrics in kismet-1943 he bares his mind in favor of social change and against the system which is based on man’s exploitation by man. One must be fair to him.
