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

Duniya mein sar ko uthhaa ke chal

Hindi film songs have been influenced by music from various genres. That is good. Some songs are ‘inspired’- a euphemism for generously borrowing. Well, it should have been better effort. Some after getting inspiration are better than the original pieces. That is something. I would cite ‘Kaun hai jo sapnon me aya..’ from ‘Jhuk Gaya Asmaan’ which was inspired by Elvis Presely’s ‘Marguerita’

However some are unapologetic carbon copies.Ugh ?

Then there are other instances of two stalwarts getting ‘inspired ‘by same track around same time and they come out with the ‘inspired’ song independent of each other. Remember ‘Jumma Chumma’ from ‘Hum’ & ‘Tamma Tamma’ from ‘Thanedar’ inspired by Mori Kante’s ‘Tama tama’? There other instances. Let me not stretch.

Today’s song is, in one part, inspired by western song ‘Sixteen tons’(1956) sung by Tennessee Ernie Ford. This song is combined with an Indian tune, in other part. This complete song is from the film ‘Heera Moti’. (1959). Some songs from ‘Heera Moti’ are already covered, including its story.

Another stalwart who was inspired by same track is S D Burman whose Kishore Kumar sung song was a chart buster. No prizes for guessing.
Today’s song, independently heard, unaware of the ‘inspiration’, sounds a good mix. The borrowed tune is interestingly sung by Gulam Mohammad. Music is by Roshan. Lyrics are by Prem Dhawan.

Additional note from Atul:
The movie was based on “Do Bailon Ki Katha”, a story by Munshi Premchand. The story was about Heera and Moti, two bulls of a villager and was written from the point of view of the bulls. But the movie version by and large reduced this movie to a story told from the point of view of humans and in the process the movie became another “Do Beegha Zameen” kind of movie.

This song was perhaps the only portion of the movie that told the tale from the point of view of the bulls. This song was “lip synced” by Heera and Moti, the two bulls, in the movie. 🙂

Song-Duniya mein sar ko uthha ke chal (Heeera Moti)(1959) Singer-Ghulam Mohammad, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Roshan
Chorus

Lyrics


ho o o
duniya mein sar ko uthha ke chal
tu thokar se raahen banake chal
sar uthaake chal
tu majboor na ban
arre duniya me chalta hai jor
pyare tu kamjor na ban
ye sach hai yaar
are sach aur jhooth ki pahchan kaha
bade dhokhe hain yahaan pe zara hoshiyar
tu kaanton se daaman bachaa ke chal

baaje madhur baansuri ban mein haule haule ho
baaje madhur bansuri ban mein haule haule ho
apne apne ghar chalen panchi pankh khole ho
dole pawan hoke magan
jhoom raha mast gagan
ho o o
ho o o
ho o o

ho o
ye duniya hai naam jhamele ka
yahaan kaam nahin hai akele ka
jise yaar kaho
phir uske yaar raho
arre ek aur ek hain gyaarah
pyaare tu kamzor na ban
ye sach hai yaar
phir sach or jhooth ki pahchan kaha
bade dhokhe hain pe yahaan hoshiyar
tu kaanton se daaman bachaa ke chal

saanjh bhai saajna
gagan bhayo laal re
sanjh bhai saajna
gagan bhayo laal re
raadhika ke mukh pe shyaam mal gayo gulaal re
dole pawan hoke magan
jhoom raha mast gagan
ho o o
ho o o
ho o o
ho o o

ho o o
hamne azab ye jahaan dekha
insaan ko bhi yahaan bejabaan dekha
hai ghulaam koi to paate khan koi
magroor ka guroor tod daal pyaare
tu kamzor na ban
ye sach hai yaar
o phir sach aur jhooth ki pahchan kaha
bade dhokhe hain yahaan per zara hoshiyar
tu kaanton se daaman bachaa ke chal
