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

Ye Choodiyaan Nahin Hathkadiyaan Hain

It is a year since the last song of “Baalika Badhu” (1976) was posted. That song “Arey Doli Mein Sawaar Sajni Ka Pyaar” was in the vocals of R D Burman. It was on RDB also called Panchamda’s birthday. That was a baraat song full of fun and frolic. Today we will have one more song- a patriotic song in the voice of the legendary Mohammad Rafi. It is written by Anand Bakshi.

I had never seen this movie in a theatre, have seen it every time it came on television. I have always loved songs so it is not surprising I love the songs from this movie too. Infact the number of times that I have seen them I know every action that accompanies each and every song. I remember there is a scene after the wedding of Amal (Sachin) & Rajni (Rajni Sharma) also called ‘Cheeni’ in the movie where in the bride’s sisters and cousins along with the bride herself have a ragging session of the groom and his male friends. Then on the wedding night Cheeni keeps chewing paan (betel leaf) and looks very cute; opens the room door to find her cousins standing at the door trying to listen in to the goings-on in the bridal room.

I have heard that there used to be melas (fairs) and weekly markets in villages and small towns of India (don’t know if they still happen) where people used to purchase items of daily needs. These fairs used to also sell clothes (imported) and bangles, bindiyas and other such things that women use to adorn themselves. The movie shows these items to be all from the various colonies of the British Raj. A highly emotional song, steeped in nationalistic fervour, urges people to stop buying these goods and if possible burn them. The period the movie is set in, is pre-independence when the non-cooperation movement was in full strength in India. We see in the song, the freedom-fighters come to one such mela, where Cheeni and her sister-in-law Chandra (Kajri) are shopping for clothes and bangles. Cheeni’s character is shown to be in love with glass bangles and during the song she hides them.  The song ends when the police enter the scene. Such impromptu shows / acts these days go by the name of flash mobs, wonder what they used to be called during the freedom struggle.

Whenever RD Burman has collaborated with Mohd. Rafi, it has been a special song. This is another special one, I won’t call it a rare song but this is a song for which only Rafisaab could have done justice, whatsay folks? Remembering our very own Panchamda on his 78th birthday with a song that does not have any characteristic of being a RD Burman composition. Thank you Panchamda for surprising us with this number.

Postscript: Did anyone notice I refrained from giving and biography about Panchamda today? I tried to consciously avoid talking about his parents, his pet name, and his innovative methods when it came to giving music.

Song – Ye Choodiyaan Nahin Hathkadiyaan Hain (Balika Badhu) (1976) Singers – Mohammed Rafi , Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – RD Burman
Chorus

Lyrics

apni maaon
behenon ki
rehne de kalaai nangi
apni maaon
behenon ki
rehne de kalaai nangi
tod de choodiwale
ye choodiyan satrangi
ye maal videshi leke
is desh me aaye firangi
oo tod de choodiwale ye choodiyan satrangi
ye maal videshi leke
is desh me aaye firangi
barson ki ghulaami ki kadiyaan hain
ye choodiyaan nahin hathkadiyaan hain
ye choodiyaan nahin hathkadiyaan hain

arey bech ke khel khilone
kya ye sarkaar karegi
in paison se phaansi ke
phande tayyaar karegi
arey bech ke khel khilone
kya ye sarkaar karegi
in paison se phaansi ke
phande tayyaar karegi
jab bichad rahe hain bete
kya ma singaar karegi
ye qurbani ki ghadiyaan hain
ye choodiyaan nahin hathkadiyaan hain
ye choodiyaan nahin hathkadiyaan hain

ye saaman hai pyaraa
ya apni laaj hai pyaari
dushman ka saath na dena
mat karna ye gaddaari
ye saaman hai pyaraa
ya apni laaj hai pyaari
dushman ka saath na dena
mat karna ye gaddaari
ghar se baahar galiyon mein
tu phenk de cheezen saari
tu phenk de cheezen saari
sun ae bharat ki naari
sun ae bharat ki naari
tu phenk de cheezen saari
in sabko aag laga do
in sabko aag laga do
hardil me josh jaga do
hardil me josh jaga do
vande maatram
vande maatram
bolo vande maatram
vande maatram
bolo vande maatram
vande maatram
vande maatram
vande maatram
vande maatram
vande maatram

Slow Version

bech ke khel khilone
kya ye sarkaar karegi
in paison se phaansi ke
phande tyyar karegi
jab bichad rahe hain bete
kya ma singaar karegi
kya ma singaar karegi
kya ma singaar karegi

अपनी माओं
बहनों की
रहने दे कलाई नंगी
अपनी माओं
बहनों की
रहने दे कलाई नंगी
तोड़ दे चूड़ीवाले
ये चूड़ियाँ सतरंगी
ये माल विदेशी ले के
इस देश में आए फिरंगी
ओ तोड़ दे चूड़ीवाले
ये चूड़ियाँ सतरंगी
ये माल विदेशी ले के
इस देश में आए फिरंगी
बरसों की ग़ुलामी की कड़ियाँ हैं
ये चूड़ियाँ नहीं हथकड़ियाँ हैं
ये चूड़ियाँ नहीं हथकड़ियाँ हैं

अरे बेच के खेल खिलौने
क्या ये सरकार करेगी
इन पैसों से फांसी के
फंदे तैयार करेगी
अरे बेच के खेल खिलौने
क्या ये सरकार करेगी
इन पैसों से फांसी के
फंदे तैयार करेगी
जब बिछड़ रहे हैं बेटे
क्या माँ सिंगार करेगी
ये कुर्बानी की घड़ियाँ हैं
ये चूड़ियाँ नहीं हथकड़ियाँ हैं
ये चूड़ियाँ नहीं हथकड़ियाँ हैं

ये समान है प्यारा
या अपनी लाज है प्यारी
दुश्मन का साथ ना देना
मत करना ये ग़द्दारी
ये समान है प्यारा
या अपनी लाज है प्यारी
दुश्मन का साथ ना देना
मत करना ये ग़द्दारी
घर से बाहर गलियों में
तू फेंक दे चीज़ें सारी
तू फेंक दे चीज़ें सारी
सुन ए भारत की नारी
सुन ए भारत की नारी
तू फेंक दे चीज़ें सारी
इन सबको आग लगा दो
इन सबको आग लगा दो
हर दिल में जोश जगा दो
हर दिल में जोश जगा दो
वंदे मातरम्
वंदे मातरम्
बोलो वंदे मातरम्
वंदे मातरम्
बोलो वंदे मातरम्
वंदे मातरम्
वंदे मातरम्
वंदे मातरम्
वंदे मातरम्
वंदे मातरम्

धीमा रूपांतर

बेच के खेल खिलौने
क्या ये सरकार करेगी
इन पैसों से फांसी के
फंदे तैयार करेगी
जब बिछड़ रहे हैं बेटे
क्या माँ सिंगार करेगी
क्या माँ सिंगार करेगी
क्या माँ सिंगार करेगी

Thanks, Peevisie’s Mom. I’ve yet to see this film – have heard this song but never seen the picturisation.
Although it’s only a few lines, the slow version comes across to me as really powerful. There’s very little music, so the voice takes centrestage. Really good.

you should see the movie Rajaji. a very simple tale but beautifully told.

who is the guy lip syncing for the song:
by the credit titles he MAY be Shaily Shailendra(That`s my guess)(by the way Shaily Shailendra is Lyricist Shailendra`s son)
OR any knowledebales help me to identify the actor lip syncing for the song HELP

And there is one more credit to Shaily Shailendra in the credit sequences of the movie:
as “Sehra by Shaily Shailendra”
What is the meaning of “Sehra”, in this context ??
Any one know about this and the guy lip syncing for the song ?

HELP !
Starcast of the movie is as based on the credit sequences:

Sachin,Asrani,Kajri,
And introducing Rajni Sharma as balika Badhu
A.K.hangal,Om shivpuri,Asit Sen,Urmila Bhatt,Preeti Ganguli,
Manik Dutta,Leela Misra,
Subrata,Amal Sen,Shaily Shailendra,Keshav Rana,Mrs.Khanna,
Shanti Chatterji,Shamim,
Master Panna,S.N.Bannerjee,Kanu Roy,Birbal,Polson,Mukunda,
Jugal Kishore,Darshan,
Tinu,Shikha,Nandu,Ratan,Rashinder,Jyoti,Subhash,Tika,Girish,
Sardendu,Prabhat,Manoj,
And Rajoo Varman
Special appearance by Paintal,Prema Narayan

Prakash ji,

The YouTube upload identifies this actor as Manik Dutt.

hullo Sudhirji
in this movie Manik Dutt plays the role of Rajni’s father
but we have to find the actor lip syncing the song, as Shaily Shailendra’s filmography lists Sara Akash & Tumhara Kalloo

Nahin Sudhir ji
woh Manik dutt/Manek Dutt nahin hai, (ek site manik dutt ke naam pe iss gaane ko jo lip sync kiya hai,uss aadmi ka photo display kiyaa hai…most probably it is a mistake)
Madam Peevesie`s Mom ji is right, Manik dutt can be identified in the below video link at 6:00, with white beard),

I remember him in Basu chatterjee`s apne paraye(where he plays the grey character of Manohar lal ->gaaon ke ghar ka naukar:who creates differences between Amol/shabana and Utpal dutt

Manik Dutt is also can be seen in Below given Hamari Bahu Alka(1982)video link at 5:25(the guy with black cap and white teeka on his forehead)
Imdb.com mentions Manik Dutt as Real life Partner of actress Anita Guha

Dear Prakash ji,

I checked with Shaily Shailendra’s sister, Amla Majumdar. This song is not lip synced by Shaily Shailendra.

Shaily plays the role of the groom’s friend.

About the ‘sehra’ referred to in the credits; ‘sehra’ is a traditional poem of congratulations and blessings, which is sung by one of the groom’s relatives or friends, at the time of the arrival of the ‘baraat’ (marriage party) at the bride’s place, before the groom gets down from the horse. The poem contains many blessings from all relatives, from forefathers, it describes the groom’s qualities etc.

This tradition slowly seems to be going out of preference, as I am seeing lesser number of weddings which have this recital as part of the events.

In the film, Shaily is the friend who reads out this ‘sehra’ at the time of the wedding. And the ‘sehra’ poem is also actually written by Shaily himself. Amla ji has the original sheet of paper on which this ‘sehra’ was written by Shaily.

Sudhir ji
I want to thank you about Shaily shailendra`s identification and information about “sehra”, this thanks giving is “belated one” But still you have taken so much pain about above information, thanks again and Sorry I am late……..

prakash

Thanks Peevesie’s Mom for the post and the song. I too have not watched this movie and do not remember when I heard this song last.
As you rightly said it’s always a special song when ‘Rafi-Pancham’ gets together.
Like this composition very much and it grows upon as we listen it again and again.
Regards,
