“चलना ज़िंदगानी दुनिया बहता पानी”

This song is another bright memory from the radio listening days. I had heard it only on the radio, and then it faded and remained elusive for many years. As I was preparing the list of songs for this series, I remembered this song, and then searched for it online.

Now, it is easily available, both in audio and video formats. As it turns out, this song is from a film that is dubbed from Telugu into Hindi. The film is produced under the banner of PSR Pictrues, Madras and is directed by Janakiram. The cast of actors includes Vijaylalitha, Jyoti Laxmi, Prabhakar Reddy, Krishna, Tyagraju, Ramdas, Pandari Bai, V Naagaiyah, Laxmi Chhaya, Junior Kanchan, and Helen in a very special appearance for a tantalizing dance number. I have not been able to locate the name of the original Telugu film that was dubbed to make ‘Kaun Sachcha Kaun Jhootha’. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information on this.
As per the information provided by our dear Prakashchandra ji, the name of the original Telegu film is ‘Nijam Nirupista’ (‘నిజం నిరూపిస్త’) (1972).

This film is also available online. I am posting both the audio and the video clips. The video clip does not add much to the song. This song appears right in the beginning of the film, and so apparently it serves as an introduction for the hero. The song is picturized as a horseback song. Prabhakar Reddy Actor Krishna is riding a horse, and most of the song is long shots from some distance. Wherever the hero appears close enough to be seen in a close-up, the lip movement is out of sync, because of the dubbing. So anyway, whichever you may prefer – to listen or to view the song. Also, the lady who appears in the clip close to the end, is Vijaylalitha.
[Note: Thanks to dear Prakash ji for the identification of the on-screen actors].

As per the credit listing, the songs of this Hindi version are written by Kewal, a name that appears on this blog for the first time. I am not familiar with this name, and I am not able to locate any information related to this artist. The music is composed by Satyam. Satyam is a well known and popular music director of the films from South India. Apparently, his forays into the Hindi films were not too successful. There is a good list of Hindi films in the 1970s and 1980s for which he was the music director. Most of these films were dubbed from South Indian languages.

This song has an attractive rhythm to it, and especially in the voice of Rafi Sb, this song is very hummable. Another obscure memory from an unfamiliar film. Quite memorable and pleasing.

Lyrics

chalna zindgaani
duniya behta paani
manzilen pukaarti hain aa ja aa ja
zindagi se rooth ke tu na ja na ja
chalna zindgaani
duniya behta paani
manzilen pukaarti hain aa ja aa ja
zindagi se rooth ke tu na ja na ja
chalna zindgaani

aaa aaa aaa haa
aaa haa haa haa
ho ho ho ho ho ho
la lall lallal la la

har kadam pe
naag kaale
insaan ko jakde khade
zaalimon ka
raaj saara
hain jaan ke laale pade
har kadam pe
naag kaale
insaan ko jakde khade
zaalimon ka
raaj saara
hain jaan ke laale pade
tu hi aa ke nijaat dilaa
zindagi ko haseen banaa
tu hi aa ke nijaat dilaa
zindagi ko haseen banaa
chalna zindgaani
duniya behta paani
manzilen pukaarti hain aa ja aa ja
zindagi se rooth ke tu na ja na ja
chalna zindgaani
hoye hoye

mazhabon ki
aad mein to
imaan ko bech rahe
insaan ho kar
khud hi insaan
insaan ko bech rahe
zulm ko mita kar
insaan ko insaan banaa
zulm ko mita kar
insaan ko insaan banaa
chalna zindgaani
duniya behta paani
manzilen pukaarti hain aa ja aa ja
zindagi se rooth ke tu na ja na ja
chalna zindgaani
hoye hoye

चलना ज़िंदगानी
दुनिया बहता पानी
मंज़िलें पुकारतीं हैं आ जा आ जा
ज़िंदगी से रूठ के तू ना जा ना जा
चलना ज़िंदगानी
दुनिया बहता पानी
मंज़िलें पुकारतीं हैं आ जा आ जा
ज़िंदगी से रूठ के तू ना जा ना जा
चलना ज़िंदगानी

आ आ आ हा
आ हा हा हा
हो हो हो हो हो हो
ल लल्ल लल्ल ल ला ला

हर कदम पे
नाग काले
इंसान को जकड़े खड़े
ज़ालिमों का
राज सारा
हैं जान के लाले पड़े
हर कदम पे
नाग काले
इंसान को जकड़े खड़े
ज़ालिमों का
राज सारा
हैं जान के लाले पड़े
तू ही आ के निजात दिला
ज़िंदगी को हसीन बना
तू ही आ के निजात दिला
ज़िंदगी को हसीन बना
चलना ज़िंदगानी
दुनिया बहता पानी
मंज़िलें पुकारतीं हैं आ जा आ जा
ज़िंदगी से रूठ के तू ना जा ना जा
चलना ज़िंदगानी
होय होय

मजहबों की
आड़ में तो
ईमान को बेच रहे
इनसां हो कर
खुद ही इनसां
इंसान को बेच रहे
ज़ुल्म को मिटा कर
इंसान को इंसान बना
ज़ुल्म को मिटा कर
इंसान को इंसान बना
चलना ज़िंदगानी
दुनिया बहता पानी
मंज़िलें पुकारतीं हैं आ जा आ जा
ज़िंदगी से रूठ के तू ना जा ना जा
चलना ज़िंदगानी
होय होय

Dear Prakash ji,

Dear Avinash ji,

Apologies for such inadvertent mix-ups. With the volume of inputs Atul ji and I receive from the contributing team, it is at times difficult to keep track of every input. Please do not mind.
