‘Chhaila Babu-1977’ may not be in the list of my most favorite films or films that brings back memories. But, yes, a few songs from this film do trigger some memories.

Only one from this movie has been discussed on our blog so far and that one song was discussed on 08.12.2008, more than Six years back. I thought about getting this writeup posted on 08th December 2014, exactly six years later, but that was not to be.

As we generally try and combine posts with some special occasions or anniversaries of the film personalities, this is being posted today (29 december 2014) to mark the birth anniversary of Superstar Rajesh Khanna.

‘Chhaila Babu – 1977’ was Produced by Shomu Mukherjee and Directed by Joy Mukherjee. It was a ‘suspense thriller’. It had Rajesh Khanna in the title role of ‘Chhaila Babu’, and he was accompanied by Zeenat Aman, Asrani, Ranjeet, Padma Khanna, Achala Sachdev, Macmohan, P.Jairaj, Ravindra Kapoor and Om Shivpuri (who, according to my memory played the villain in this film).

Music of this film was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal (and not by RDB as one would assume by its songs and as noted by ATUL ji while discussing the first song “Yaar dildaar tujhe kaisa chaahiye” from this film on our blog). I would like to mention that many would find today’s song similar to RDB genre of songs of that era.

Lyrics of all songs for this film ‘CHHAILA BABU-1977’ are by ANAND BAKSHI.

I watched this film in my childhood with my parents and do not remember it now.

But I can recollect a few things about this movie which are in my vague memory.

There is one scene in the film – the climax scene -where Rajesh Khanna is trapped in a ‘bhool bhulaiyya’ , which have all mirrors on its walls and he could not locate where exactly the villain is, but finally he succeeded (as only he can 🙂 ) and shoots the real ‘Scorpion’ there.

A brief info is available on Wikipedia about this film at this link.

Wikipedia mentions this film as a ‘super hit’. Such information need to be taken with some pinch of salt, though. I find that many films of Rajesh Khanna, which I thought were average/or flops, are now described as Hits and Super Hits on ‘wiki’.

But I do agree with Atul ji “that many great Rajesh Khanna movies came about in 1980s when he was no longer a superstar, and these movies did not succeed”

Coming to this song from the film it is picturised at a club location where Rajesh Khanna is playing the drummer and lip syncing in Kishore’s voice, while Padma Khanna is lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. Also seen are Leena Das, Zeenat Amaan, Om Shivpuri, Ranjeet, Mac Mohan, Man Mohan and others.

So here is this song which used to be frequently heard on Radio in those days.

And keeping with the celebration mood, holiday mood, New Year mood, and party mood … Enjoy the song, the style – the mannerisms of the First ever real Superstar of the Hindi Cinema – Rajesh Khanna.


Song-Kal raat sadak pe ek ladki (Chhaila Baabu)(1977) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Kal raat sadak pe ek ladki
Ladki ne mujhko aawaz di

Taxi taxi taxi

main wahin ruk gaya
ye sar jhuk gaya
wo aage badhi
nazar jab ladi
yoon aankhen meenche wo baithhi peechhe
wo boli
suno

main bola kahaan
wo boli
wahaan
jahaan dil mile zaraa gul khile

Oo oo oo

gira ke meter
do ghoont pee kar
main neend se jagaa
usey le
bhaaga
bhaaga
bhaaga
bas bas
bas bas
bas bas
aage mat poochho o o
aage aage dekho o o
bas bas bas bas bas bas
aage mat poochho o o
aage aage dekho o o
gaadi shahar se jab nikli

Ha ha ha ha haa
Aha ha
Ha ha ha ha aa
Ha ha ha ha aa

Aa aa
La la laa
La la laa aa

Ladki ne mujhko aawaz di

Taxi
Suno

Please suno na
Taxi taxi
ae haseen naujawaan aa aa aa aa
phir ye mausam kahaan aa aa aa
ae haseen naujawaan
phir ye mausam kahaan
raat madhosh hai
waqt khaamosh hai
dil ye baatein
karo karo
kuchh kaho
kuchh suno
suno suno

Oo oo oo oo
maine hans kar kahaa
ae meri dilruba
aa zaraa mere paas
mere lab pe hai pyaas
Lag gayi wo gale
gaadi kissse chale
ruk gaye humsafar
Juhu ke beach par
bas bas bas bas bas bas
aage mat poochho o o
aage aage dekho o o
bas bas bas bas bas bas
aage mat poochho o o
aage aage dekho o o
saahil pe taxi jab thhehri

Logon ne mujhko aawaz di
Taxi

Taxi taxi taxi taxi taxi taxi

Bola main ji nahin
Taxi khaali nahin

donon chalne lage
dil machalne lage
donon chalne lage
dil machalne lage
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa

ek sunsaan si jagah aayi
ret par baithh kar
yoon mila kar nazar
baanhon se kheench kar
baanhon mein bheench kar
usne mujhse kahaa
bekadar bewafaa
kar gaya main janaab
Usne ulti naqaab
Saath baithhi thhi jo
meri biwi thhi wo
bas bas bas bas bas bas
aage mat poochho o o
Aage mat poochho o o
Bas bas bas bas bas bas
aage mat poochho
aage mat poochho

Ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha

Avinashji: thank you very much for this lively song. Majaa aagaya. heard it after god knows how many years. one of the dancers is Padma Khanna the other one (who is swinging her leg in RK’s face through the song) is Leena Das no?.did anyone notice the uneasy angle at which Rajesh Khanna plays the drums. i think he wud have ended with a back ache with that axn. Whatsay? 😉
Belated Birthday wishes to my Favourite of those years

@ Peevesie’s Mom ji – you are not late, the birth anniversary of the Superstar is today only.
And yes you have rightly identified Leena Das.
As far as RK’s uneasy posture … ye to unka style hai na ..

@ Atul ji – thanks for the post !!
