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

Baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan

Posted on: July 4, 2013


“Das Lakh” (1966) was a Goel Cine Corporation Production. It was produced and directed by Devendra Goel. The movie had Sanjay Khan, Babita, Om Prakash, Pran, Helen, Manorama, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo, Parvin Paul, Master Ripple, Baby Sonia, Bramhachari, Hari Shivdasani, Shefali Chowdhry, Amir Ali, Nazir Kashmiri, Baby Yasmin, Master Aziz, Kapoor, Abhimanyu Sharma, Shyamlal, Mool Chand etc in it.

Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the fifth song from the movie. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar. The song is picturised as a stage dance competition song. Babita is shown singing and dancing in Hindustani semi classical style while Helen is shown singing and dancing in the western style consisting of twist, shake, rock and roll etc. That way this song is reminiscent of the showdown song from Dr Vidya (1962) viz Aay haay dilruba that pits Vyjyanti Mala (as the virtuous Bhartiya Naari singing and dancing Indian semi classical style versus Helen singing and dancing in the style of the decadent west. 🙂 A similar song competition situation arose in 1969 as well in “Prince” (1969) where the same two dance competitors faced off in the song Muqabla hamse na karo.

Helen is a constant in all the three songs under discussion upholding the banner of “western” way of dancing and here too she gets converted into the desi way of singing and dancing by the time the song draws to a close. 🙂

Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Atif M.

Lyrics(Provided by Atif M)

Baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
dhadkat man thirke mora tan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan

twist karoon main shake karoon main
naachoon rock and roll
koyi na mujh se jeet sake
chaahe laakh baja le dhol

baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan

chaal chaloon jab chham chham karti
chaal chaloon jab chham chham karti
naache amber jhoome dharti
log kahen yeh chamki bijuriya
lachke jab mera gora badan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan

tu bijli to main hoon shola
badh badh ke na bol
qadam mila kar dekh zara tu
khul jaayegi pol

baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan

tu ne badla rang to kya
ab dekh mera bhi rang
ang ang yoon phadkaaun ke
reh jaaye duniya dang

baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
dhadkat man thirke mora tan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
baaje mori paayal chhanan chhanan
