Hullo Atuldom

This is something which I have always felt. I read the title or heading of a song posted on the blog and immediately I recall another song that has similar thoughts, actions or beginning words in the lyrics. I had the same experience a few days back.

Let me explain. Last time the writing bug bit me, and I was writing this post, I had mentioned Farah Khan’s aunts – Honey and Daisy Irani in the post. As a next step I just looked up if any of their birth dates were in the next few days. I went a little further and just checked out which were the debut movies of the two super-cute sisters and found various sites giving names of different movies.

This Post by our in-house encyclopedia gives a brief biography of the two sisters. I also read Shri. Nayan Yagnik’s comments to the post, where he has mentioned that Honey Irani was youngest among the siblings and that ‘Didi’ or ‘Zameen ke Taare’ could be the debut of Honey. One thing definitely came out of all this research- I recollected a song from the ’80s which I used to hum and was full of ‘Anokhe Bol’.

The 1980s song that I am talking featured the Oh So Gorgeous!! Parveen Babi, Shatrughan Sinha, and Master Vishal. The song was shot in Byculla Zoo of Bombay which was called Victoria Gardens in those days. (This Zoo was renamed as Veermata Jijabai Bhonsale Udyan sometime after 1985 and Bombay became Mumbai. I am sure the older followers of this blog will tell if I am right.)

I am able to locate only a audio link of the song, but having seen it a number of times in Chitrahaar and other such television programmes, I can say that this song is meant to amuse a child who is upset that his family is no more.

Shatrughan Sinha, who plays a cop, is out to solve a triple murder, the child is the only one who escapes. Parveen Babi is the cop’s friend and she helps the cop become friendly with the glum child. Vinod Mehra, Bindiya Goswami (in guest appearances) and Ashok Kumar are the parents and grandfather of the boy who have been killed, Nirupa Roy played the grandma. Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Amjad Khan, Narendranath, Zarina Wahab, Kalpana Iyer, Imtiaz Khan, Satyen Kappu and Amjad Khan were the rest of the cast. The song I am bringing on-board here is from “Chor Police” (1983) which was the directorial debut of Amjad Khan and produced by his wife Shehla Khan and Vinay Kumar Sinha (who was Amjad Khan’s secretary too). It had RD Burman’s music and songs were written by Nida Fazli. Suresh Wadkar, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar, Vinod Sehgal and Vanita Mishra were the playback singers used.

With this post we remember the heroine of this film, Parveen Babi who died on 20th January in 2005. She died a loner and her body was discovered by the police two days later when her neighbours saw uncollected groceries, milk and newspapers outside her door. She was only 50.

Lyrics

atkan batkan dahi chataakan
choon choon bhaun bhaun myaaun
atkan batkan dahi chataakan
choon choon bhaun bhaun myaaun
ek paheli bade maze ki
poochhoon tum batlaao
bolo vicky
bataloge
to suno

jo dekhe wo nakal utaare
sabka ji bahlaaye
waqt pade to sena ban kar dushman se takraaye
jo dekhe wo nakal utaare
sabka ji bahlaaye
waqt pade to sena ban kar dushman se takraaye
Ramayan me katha ho jiski
ghar pandit dohraaye
bolo kya
ho bolo kya
bolo bolo
maaloom nahin
haah
arre bandar
atkan batkan dahi chataakan
choon choon bhaun bhaun myaaun
ek paheli bade maze ki
poochhoon tum batlaao

hilta dulta parwat jaisa pankhon jaise kan
jungle ho ya basti iski sabse oonchi shaan
hilta dulta parwat jaisa pankhon jaise kan
jungle ho ya basti iski sabse oonchi shaan
deel daul se ek jaanwar chehre se bhagwaan
bolo kya
ho bolo kya
are baba ab to bolo
haathi
haan
atkan batkan dahi chataakan
choon choon bhaun bhaun myaaun
ek paheli bade maze ki
poochhoon tum batlaao

sar pe koi taaj na pagdi
odhe sada doshaala
raat andheri jab bhi nikle aankhen kare ujaala
sar pe koi taaj na pagdi
odhe sada doshaala
raat andheri jab bhi nikle aankhen kare ujaala
jungle ka ek raaja aisa
billi jiski khaala
bolo kya
ho bolo kya

bolo bolo
nahin pehchaana
arre sher

koyal mein kuku ban jaaye
bansi mein malhaar
mamta ki honthon par lori
chidiyon mein chahkaar
koyal mein kuku ban jaaye
bansi mein malhaar
mamta ki honthon par lori
chidiyon mein chahkaar
de chehra ek cheez galey mein jiske rang hazar
bolo kya
ho bolo kya
bolo
bolo beta
koshish karo
