Hamri munder boley kaaga sakhi ri

I had never heard the name of Hindi film BAABLA (1953) until one of the film’s songs raat ke raahi thhak mat jaana was posted on this blog a few months back. The information about this film on the internet is scanty. The director/s and the most of actors of the film appear to be from Bengali film industry. As per IMDB, the film had two directors – N B Agrami and Bibhuti Laha, the latter also was the Cinematographer for the film. The cast of the film included Paresh Banerjee, Manju Dey, Hiralal, Master Niren, Pahadi Sanyal, Sova Sen etc. The film was produced under the banner of M P Productions which had earlier produced films like ‘Jawaab’ (1942), ‘Hospital’ (1943), ‘Tum Aur Main’ (1947) etc.

The film had six songs including the one version song, all being the solo songs sung by five different playback singers. All songs were written by Sahir Ludhinavi and set to music by S D Burman. From the song referred to above and also other songs from the film, my guess is that the film was based on some off- beat socio-economic subject with rural or semi-urban setting.

In this film, there is a folk based song ‘ hamri munder bola kaaga sakhi ri’ sung by Rajkumari. Only the audio clip of the song is available. The film may have flopped at the box office but all the songs in this film are pleasant to my ears including the one under discussion.


Song-Hamri munder boley kaaga sakhi ri (Baabla)(1953) Singer-Rajkumari, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

ho o o o
o o o o
o o o

hamri munder boley kaaga sakhi ri
bichhde baalam ghar aayenge
hamri munder boley kaaga sakhi ri
bichhde baalam ghar aayenge

ghoonghat mein saansen lehkegi
mori sooni ratiyaan mehkegi
ghoonghat mein
ghoonghat mein saansen lehkegi
mori sooni ratiyaan mehkegi
sakhi birha ke gham
sabhi bhoolenge ham
sunke unke kadam ko
bichhde baalam ghar aayenge
hamri munder boley kaaga sakhi ri
bichhde baalam ghar aayenge

jab wo aangan mein aayenge
morey sapne sachh ho jaayenge
ho more sapne
jab wo aangan mein aayenge
more sapne sachh ho jaayenge
leke man mein umang
main to kheloongi rang
piyaa pyaare se sang
wo bichhde baalam ghar aayenge
hamri munder boley kaaga sakhi ri
bichhde baalam ghar aayenge

jab un baahon mein jhooloongi
main jag ke sab kuchh bhooloongi
main bhooloongi
jab un baahon mein jhooloongi
main jag ke sab kuchh bhooloongi
aaj main hoon magan
mera man hai magan
leke jeewan ka sang
wo bichhde baalam ghar aayenge
hamri munder bole kaaga sakhi ri
bichhde baalam ghar aayenge

The correct words in the last stanza :

jab un baahon mein jhooloongi
main jag ‘ ki sudh budh ‘ bhooloongi

Thanks for pointing out the mistake in lyrics.
It not only sounds like ‘sudh budh’, it makes sense in the verse also.
