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

Baar baar haan bolo yaar haan

Posted on: April 19, 2013


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

Song no. 5 of the ‘desert’ series. It is a group motivational song from the film “Lagaan – Once upon a time in India” (2001).

The whole nation is in grip of IPL fever, so here is a song perfomed on screen by a cricket team, while preparing for a showdown match with the British Ruling class team. I presume that most of us have seen this film. This is one of those Indian films which came this ” ii ” close to winning the oscar, for foreign film category. ((first ” i ” is the oscar trophy and second ” i ” is the film )

May be next time Amir Khan aims for the oscars, he should rope in George Clooney in the team. 😐

A synopsis of the movie is here.

The song in question is composed by A. R. Rehman and written by Javed Akhtar. The singers are A. R. Rehman, Srinivas with chorus. There is female singer too, who sounds like Sadhana Sargam. From the details given in imdb site, it is seen that as many as 14 playback singers have sung songs for the film. All major choreographers of the day are there is the list of credits(except Farah Khan). There is even one Assistant Choreographer. But the name of choreographer of this song is not there in the list.

The location of the film’s shooting is at Bhuj in Gujarat, which is close enough to Rajashtan, for a lot of sand and dry lands in the film. The life of the villagers is tough. They have to fight with the elements and natural calamities like the draught situation for much of their lives. Though the challenge thrown at them by the British General is outrageous, the villagers have no choice but to make the most of it. And against all odds they eventually beat the British team, proving that fortune favours the brave.

With the IPL tournament all major indian cities are at logger heads, if the names of the teams are an indication. What with Pune Warriors, Royal Challegers Bangalore, Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Dare Devils, Kings XI Punjab, so on & so forth.

Mumbai Indian is the only name which is not confrontational. I fear that the national team member is in danger of getting into the habit of playing against each other and forgetting to play as a team. 😦 Just speculating ! So let’s enjoy this motivational song.

Finally, there is no dearth of desert locale songs in new films. I am still looking for comparatively older songs.


Song-Baar baar haan bolo yaar haan (Lagaan) (2001) Singers-A R Rehman, Srinivas, Sadhana Sargam, Lyrics-Javed Akhtar, MD-A R Rehman

Lyrics

baar baar haan
bolo yaar haan
apni jeet ho o o
un ki haar haan
hey
baar baar haan
bolo yaar haan
apni jeet ho o o
un ki haar haan
koyi ham se jeet na paave
chale chalo
chale chalo
mit jaave jo takraave
chale chalo

ghanghor andheraa chaave
chale chalo
chale chalo
koyi raah mein na tham jaave
chale chalo

toot gayee jo ungli utthee
paanch ungli jo ban gayee mutthee
ekaa badhtaa hi jaave
chale chalo
chale chalo
koyi kitnaa bhi behkaave
chale chalo
koyi ham se jeet na paave
chale chalo
chale chalo
mit jaave jo takraave
chale chalo

koyee na ab roke tujhe toke tujhe
tod de bandhan saare
milaa hai kya ho ke tujhe
nirbal tu hi bataa

kabhi na dukh jhelenge
khelenge aise ke dusman haare
ke ab to le lenge himmat ka rastaa
dharti hilaa denge
sab ko dikhaa denge
raaja hai kya parjaa hai kya
ho o oo oo
ham jag pe chhaayenge
ab ye bataayenge
ham logon ka darjaa hai kya
ho oo ooo o
baar baar haan
bolo yaar haan
apni jeet ho o o
un ki haar haan
hey
baar baar haan

ab dar nahin man mein aave
bolo yaar haan
chale chalo
chale chalo

apni jeet ho o o
har bedi ab khul jaave
un ki haar haan
chale chalo

chala hi chal haanp nahin kaanp nahin
raah mein ab to raahe
thakan ka saanp nahin
ab tujhe dasne paaye

wahi jo teraa haakim hai
jaalim hai
ki hai jis ne tabaahi
ghar uss ka paschim hai
yehaan na basne paaye
dharti hilaa denge
sab ko dikhaa denge
raaja kya parjaa hai kya
ho o oo oo
ham jag pe chhaayenge
ab ye bataayenge
ham logon ka darjaa hai kya
ho oo ooo o
jo honaa hai ho jaaye
chale chalo
chale chalo
ab sar na koyee jhukaave
chale chalo
koyi ham se jeet na paave
chale chale
chale chalo
mit jaave jo takraave
chale chalo

baar baar haan
toot gayee jo ungli utthee
bolo yaar haan
paanch ungli jo ban gayee mutthee
apni jeet ho oo ooo
ekaa badhtaa hi jaave
un ki haar haan
chale chalo
chale chalo

He can’t sing.

Its a boring movie. Too long. I dont know anyone who has tried to watch this movie for the second time.

Guide should have won an Oscar. Anands just didnt have money to show it to the voters.
