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

Kabhi chaar baje kabhi paanch baje

Posted on: September 18, 2013


“Chaandni Chowk” (1954) was a Hira Films Company production. It was directed by B R Chopra. The movie had Shekhar, Meena Kumari, Sunder, Kumar, Jeevan, Achla Sachdev, Yashodhara Katju etc in it.

Eleven songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. This movie had twelve songs in it, which means that we are one song away from covering all the songs of this movie.

Yesterday I discussed a rare song from the movie which was sung by three Mangeshkar sisters. This twelfth song from the movie is just as rare. This song is a light hearted song which is sung by Sundar (the comedian) and Shamshad Begam.

Only the audio of this song is available. Seeing that Sundar figures in the movie, it is clear that he sings for himself in the movie. From the lyrics of the song (by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan), one can deduce that Sundar plays Kallan and he expresses his love for his love interest in this song who is named Shabnam. In this song, Sundar talks of taking her out on a tour to the landmarks of Delhi. So it is a song that discusses Delhi and that way it is the title song (of sorts) to the movie as well.

On HFGK and myswar etc , this song is described as “Qutubminar Pe Chadh Kar”. Listening to the song, one can see that “Kabhi chaar baje kabhi paanch baje” is the more appropriate title of this song.

Roshan is the music director.

With this song, “Chaandni Chowk” (1954) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Kabhi chaar baje kabhi paanch baje(Chaandni Chowk)(1954) Singers-Sundar, Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

qutub meenaar per chadhkar
ye duniya ko bataana hai
arri duniya ye kallan
apni shabnam ka deewaana hai
he he he
deewaana hai
deewaaana hai ae ae

is dil mein tumhaari yaad aayi
is dil mein tumhaari yaad aayi
kabhi chaar baje
to kabhi paanch baje
ho kabhi chaar baje
to kabhi paanch baje
mere dil ki murgi chillaayee
mere dil ki murgi
kokako kokako
ho kabhi chaar baje
ho kabhi paanch baje
ho kabhi chaar baje
ho kabhi paanch baje
chaar baje
kabhi paanch baje
kabhi chaar baje
kabhi paanch baje

jugnu bankar tujhko dhoondha
dilli ki andheri galiyon mein
ji dilli ki andheri galiyon mein
dilli waalo ke bhanwre to
badnaam bahut hain galiyon mein
ho o
badnaam bahut hain galiyon mein
teri ghar ghar hogi ruswaayi
teri ghar ghar hogi ruswaayi
kabhi chaar baje
ho kabhi paanch baje
ho kabhi chaar baje
ho kabhi paanch baje

chaar baje
kabhi paanch baje
kabhi chaar b b baje
p p ppaanch baje

phir ??
chaandni chowk mein girte rahe
haay girte rahe
????
tere gore qadam par girte rahe
haay girte rahe

huyi ghanta ghar pe pitwaayi
huyi ghanta ghar pe pitwaayi
kabhi chaar baje
ho kabhi paanch baje
ho kabhi chaar baje
ho kabhi paanch baje

chaar baje
kabhi paanch baje
kabhi chaar b b baje
p p paanch b b baje
inkaar na kar
chal saath tu mein
tujhe
d d dilli ki
s s sair karaaunga

tujhe laal quila diklaaunga
jantar mantar le jaaunga
?? khilwaaunga
phir dahi vade khilwaaunga
???
phir laal quile chalwaaunga

tujhe wo dukaan dikhlaaunga
jahaan
m m makhhiyaan
jahaan makhhiyaan maaren halwaayi
ho jahaan makhhiyaan maaren halwaayi
ho kabhi chaar baje
ho kabhi paanch baje
ho kabhi chaar baje
ho kabhi paanch baje
chaar baje
kabhi paanch baje
kabhi chaar b b baje
p p p paanch
ayyi ayyi aayi

WOW So could search the gem. Thanks.
Like Om Prakash, Sunder was a good singer. He also sang in Jungle Ka Jahawar-1952; Mastana-1954; Ilzam-1954; Upkar-1967

Sir, two duets sung by Sundar from ‘Jungle Ka Jawahar’ have already been shared to Atul ji earlier. As the name of the singer mentioned was Shyam Sundar, I was not aware that it was comedian Sundar singing the songs.

Avinash ji and Nitin ji,

Please note that singers Shyamsunder and singer/actor Sunder(singh) are two different persons.
I have already posted a song sung by Shyamsunder on 24-8-2013,from Dil ki Rani-1947,( Loot liya) wherein you can actually see singer/MD Shyamsunder lip synching his own song and you will know that he is NOT actor Sunder(singh).

@Deshmukh Sir – Yes ! that is what i wish to get clarified.
And i think , it is MD-Shyam Sundar who is also performing on screen in the film JUNGLE KA JAWAHAR.
So, the duets also fall in the category where a music director is singing under other Music Director (for Jungle Ka Jawahar – the MD is MADHULAL DAMODAR MASTER).
