“Baghdad Ka Jaadoo”(1956) was directed by John Cawas for Basant Pictures production, Bombay. The movie had John Cawas and Nadia in lead roles alongwith Krishna Kumari, Sheila Kashmiri, Habib, S Advani, Vijaya Chaudhary, Azeem, Nazeer Kashmiri, Poonam, Dalpat, Abdullah, Neeta Roy, H Prakash, Julien, Shanta Patel, Shree Bhagwan, Korega, Baby Rehana, Ismail, Yadav, Prithvi, Munshi Munaqqa, Ratan Kumar, Sikandar, Mitthoo Miyaan, Sardar Mansoor, M K Hasan etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past. So that leaves just one song from the movie.

The remaining song is a rare song, as can be expected. The song is sung by Khursheed Bawra. Preetam Dehalvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shafi M Nagri, who was also known as Mohammad Shafi.

The song is picturised as a roadside tamasha song where the lip syncer (I am unable to identify him) sings this song while people gather around him.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors in the picturisation.

With this interesting song, “Baghdad Ka Jaadoo”(1956) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Song-Meri paheli koi na boojhe…suno bhai duniya waalon (Baghdad Ka Jaadoo)(1956) Singer-Khursheed Baawra , Lyrics-Preetam Dehalvi, MD-Shafi M Nagri


ha aa aa
meri paheli koi na boojhe
duniya zor lagaaye ae ae ae ae
jo sun le wo hansta jaaye
jo samjhe pachhtaaye

suno bhai duniya waalon
suno bhai duniya waalon
sunlo zara
hosh sambhaalo zara
hosh sambhaalo sambhaalo sambhaalo zara
suno bhai duniya waalon o o o o

ek din khwaab ye dekha ke
main gulshan mein gaya
dekhta baag ki raunak jo zara aage badha
thhodi si der mein ek simat se ye aayi sada
ek kali ne muskura ke
mujhse phir ye kaha
kya kaha
ek lutera shaah ke darbaar mein
jaana chaahta thha
bhesh badalkar shaahi khazaana
lootke laana chaahta thha
bhai wayi wayi wayi wayi wayi wayi
ho o o o
lekin shaahon
aji lekin shaahon
jaisa uske pass na koi kapda thha
isi fikar mein
bhai isi fikar mein
thha wo hardam
isi baat ka jhagda tha
bhai wayi wayi wayi wayi wayi wayi
phir kya hua

phir chala aisi wo chaal
aa gaya usko khayaal
aisa bichhaya usne jaal
kar diya usne kamaal
ho saka na paayamaal
baaton mein lagaa ke
kapde churaake
hanske hansaa ke ji hi hi hi
chala wo jhoomta aur gaata hua
are matwaalon zara
hosh sambhaalo sambhaalo sambhaalo zara
suno bhai duniya waalon o o o

saari duniya dekh rahi thhi
koi na samjha uske dhang
sun’ne waale
bhai sunne waale
sun rahe the
ho rahe the saare dang
bhai wayi wayi wayi wayi wayi wayi
ab shahzaadon
bhai ab shahzaadon
jaisi pagdi aur joote ka thha sawaal
is dhun mein wo
aji is dhun mein wo
aage jaaker chala doosri chaal
dhaagi tit
dhaagi tit
udan khatola upar jaakar
ban gaya gola
pakad le bam bam bam
pakad le bam bam bam
pakad le bam bam ha
saamne dukaan par baitha tha
ek bekhabar
uski pad gayi najar
dekh kar idhar udhar
tay kiya apna safar
dhoom machaake kaam banaake
rang jamaake ji hi hi hi

raste par
bhai raste par
ek jaadugar ko dekh ke
uske paas gaya
jaadugar ko
jaadugar ko
bhi usne phir apna jaadu dikhlaaya
kya dikhaaya
karke makkar
deke chakkar
jaadu ki koi cheez udaakar
ho gaya wo to rafoochakkar
dekhta rah gaya wo ghanchakkar
chhoom chhaank chhu chhnak chhnak chhu
chhoom chhaank chhu chha
chhoom chhaank chhu chha
chhoom chhaank chhu ha

Atul ji,

In my opinion, the on screen performer is John Cawas.

I request other readers to please correct if me, or confirm.



The actor in the song is indeed John Cawas in disguise. The lyrics of the song give some indications as to why he is in disguise.
