Badan Pe Sitaare Lapete Hue

Animal charm at it's best!! I believe only Shammi Kapoor can pull this one off, no one, I repeat, no one in Bollywood has an ability to act like this and still look respectful, handsome, charming, adorable yet romantic.

The very first time I heard this one was when I was probably 8 or so. It was an annual function at a college. Our family friend's son used to live in dorms and attended college in town and visited us often as he didn't have any family near by. He invited the whole family to attend the annual day at his college. Since that day, I longed for attending college, not for anything but just those annual days. *sigh* they're just so much fun. That was probably the only one I have ever attended in my entire life and a most memorable one at that. I used to think Vyjayantimala looked like a princess in that red saari and adored her immensely back then, but she still looks great here; at the same time, I think she has looked better.


badan pe sitaare lapete hue
o jaane tamanna kidhar jaa rahi ho
zaraa paas aao to chain aa jaaye (2)

badan pe sitaare lapete hue
o jaane tamanna kidhar jaa rahi ho
zaraa paas aao to chain aa jaaye (2)

hum hi jab naa honge to aye dilrubaa
kise dekhkar haaye sharmaaogi
naa dekhogi phir tum kabhi aainaa
hamaare binaa roz ghabraaogi
badan pe sitaare lapete hue
o jaane tamanna kidhar jaa rahi ho
zaraa paas aao to chain aa jaaye (2)

hai banane sanvarne kaa jab hi mazaa
koi dekhne waalaa aashiq to ho
nahin to ye jalwe hai bujhte diye
koi mitne waalaa ek aashiq to ho
badan pe sitaare lapete hue
o jaane tamanna kidhar jaa rahi ho
zaraa paas aao to chain aa jaaye (2)

mohabbat ki yeh intehaa ho gayi
ki masti mein tumko khudaa keh gayaa
zamaanaa yeh insaaf kartaa rahe
buraa keh gayaa yaa bhalaa keh gayaa
badan pe sitaare lapete hue
o jaane tamanna kidhar jaa rahi ho
zaraa paas aao to chain aa jaaye (2)

badan pe sitaare lapete hue
o jaane tamanna kidhar jaa rahi ho
zaraa paas aao to chain aa jaaye (2)

"zaraa paas aao to chain aa jaaye" part is sung in excellent way. On the same note singer has changed his voice like sine wave. Neither on positive or negative peak you feel like note is changed but you do feel like something is changed.. Quite cool song ..

Jaydip, that's right. It's one of my favorites in the "Rafi for Shammi" category.
