#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 59 # Rajesh Khanna’s 75th birth anniversary
———————————————–——————————————————-

Today 29th December 2017 is the 75th birth anniversary of Rajesh Khanna (29.12.1942-18.07.2012).

On this occasion here is a song from the ‘1977’ movie ‘Chhaila Babu’.

In the year 1977 there were nine movies (including ‘Tyaag’ which was passed by Censor Board in 1976) of Rajesh Khanna as per following;

SNo Movie Year Date Passed by Censor Board
01 Tyaag 1977 29.07.1976 *
02 Anurodh 1977 31.01.1977
03 Chhaila Babu 1977 20.04.1977
04 Karm 1977 27.04.1977
05 Chalta Purza 1977 16.06.1977
06 Hatyara (Special Appearance) 1977 04.07.1977
07 Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka 1977 18.11.1977
08 Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein 1977 04.11.1977
09 Tinku (Special Appearance) 1977 01.12.1977

From the above list one can conclude that this is a list of flop movies, except ‘Chhaila Babu’ which was a ‘commercially successful movie’, though nowhere in the league as Rajesh Khanna’s earlier hit movies.
Movies like ‘Karm’, ‘Anurodh’, and ‘Palkon Ki Chhaaon Mein’ were ‘critically acclaimed’ though.

‘Chhaila Babu – 1977’ a ‘suspense thriller’ was a Mukherji Brothers Presentation. It was produced by Shomu Mukherjee who also wrote the story and screenplay of this film.

It was directed by Joy Mukherjee.

It had Rajesh Khanna in title role of ‘Chhaila Babu’, and accompanied by Zeenat Amaan, Asrani, Om Shivpuri, Padma Khanna, Achala Sachdev and Ranjeet.

Supported by Jairaj, Ravindra Kapoor, Mac Mohan, Manmohan, Sherry, Gulshan Arora, Ashim Kumar, Shyam, Guru Darshan, Manik Dutt, Qureshi, Uttam, Yeshraj, Vinod Thakkar, Harun, Johny Whisky, Dhanna, Master Salim, Aziz Asser, Raghubir, Prem and others.

Its lyrics were written by Anand Bakshi, and music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Dialogues of this film were written by Kader Khan and it was edited by B.S. Glaad.

I have vague memories of watching this movie with my parents and vaguely remember the movie’s storyline and songs.
I have earlier shared two songs of this movie ‘Kal raat sadak pe ek ladki ’ and ‘Hamko nikaaloge ghar se sajan pachhtaaoge ’.

The most popular song of this movie Yaar dildaar tujhe kaisa chhaahiye was the first song to be posted on the blog and it was discussed by Atul ji way back in 2008 (08.12.2008).

The other two songs were posted on 29.12.2014 and 04.02.2015 respectively.

As per HFGK this movie had total Seven songs (including one multiple version song). But, I think it should be six only. This needs to be checked and shall be discussed in future with the remaining song of this movie). Out of these seven songs we have so far three songs already covered on the blog.

I can say that all the songs from this movie are nice hummable song though only this song Yaar dildaar tujhe kaisa chhaahiye could make it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ that year in 1977 and so far it had been the most popular song from this movie. It was ranked 18th in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1977.

However, going back to the songs of this movie and listening to them after a gap of so many years is an interesting exercise and it brings back fond memories of those years.

Today’s song ‘main baaboo chhaila’ is sung by Kishore Kumar and lip synced by Rajesh Khanna on screen. The picturisation of this song shows Rajesh Khanna, Zeenat Aman and Asrani is following them.

After watching the video, I thought it must be shot on the locations in Kashmir (? though not sure), (as the film’s titles do not mention names of any outdoor shooting locations). However, the titles did mention the name of ‘Filmalaya Studios’ where the movie or its parts must have been shot).

Let us revive the magic of ‘Kishore Kumar-Rajesh Khanna’ Jodi, with Kaka’s favorite lyrics writer – Anand Bakshi – there, but for a change – composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Let us now enjoy today’s song!!

लूई शे ए ए
ओ हो हो हो मैं बाबू छैला

ये नाम था मेरा पहला
आज से मैं बन गया रे मजनू
देख के तुझको लैला
हे

सुन ले दिल का ये अफसाना
तेरा मेरा प्यार पुराना
सुन ले दिल का ये अफसाना
तेरा मेरा प्यार पुराना
माना एक बहरूपिया हूँ मैं
लेकिन तेरा हूँ दीवाना
आदत मेरी बुरी सही पर
दिल का मैं नहीं मैला
आज से मैं बन गया रे मजनू
देख के तुझको लैला
ह हा हां हां
मैं बाबू छैला
छैला बाबू

(राजेश खन्ना, जीनत अमान और असरानी के बीच के संवाद जो यहाँ पर शामिल नहीं किये गए हैं)

ये जो अपने पीछे दौड़े
बिमारी पीछा न छोड़े
ये जो अपने पीछे दौड़े
बिमारी पीछा न छोड़े
ऐसे प्रेमी ऐसे पागल
दुनिया में मिलते हैं थोड़े
जाने ये हैं पान का छक्का
या चिड़िया का नहला
आज से मैं बन गया रे मजनू
देख के तुझको लैला
ह हा हां हां
मैं बाबू छैला
छैला बाबू
बाबू छैला
मैं बाबू छैला
छैला बाबू
बाबू छैला

हम्म ओ हो ओ
ल ल ल ल ल ल ल ल ल ला

हम जैसे दीवाने अक्सर
जान भी दे देते हैं हंस कर
हम जैसे दीवाने अक्सर
जान भी दे देते हैं हंस कर
गम न कर बस शौक़ से दिलबर
तीर चलाये जा सीने पर
टूट गया दिल मेरा तो क्या
तेरा दिल तो बहला
आज से मैं बन गया रे मजनू
देख के तुझको लैला
ओये छैला
हे
मैं बाबू छैला
छैला बाबू
बाबू छैला
मैं बाबू छैला
छैला बाबू
बाबू छैला
ये नाम था मेरा पहला
हम्म हम्म
आज से मैं बन गया रे मजनू
हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म
देख के तुझको लैला
हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म
हम्म हम्म हम्म
हम्म हम्म हम्म
हम्म हम्म हम्म
हम्म हम्म हम्म
मैं बाबू छैला
छैला बाबू
बाबू छैला

Thanks for this post, Avinashji. I remember this song being quite popular too, even if this is not reflected in Binaca Geet Mala. But, to be honest, by then we were clutching at straws for any Rajesh Khanna song or film to be successful. Looking at this list of movies, brings back memories – of what once was, and a realisation of how precipitous the decline was.

I do remember enjoying this song though. It is a breezy song – we used to sing it on picnics and antaksharis. 🙂
