With Aamir Khan’s Delhi Belly’s Bhaag bhaag DK Bose number threatening to create a controversy, we go down memory’s lane to unearth the top 10 hilarious, disgusting or plain offensive Hindi film lyrics.
1. Bhaag DK Bose (Delhi Belly, unreleased)
Daddy mujhse bola, tu galati hai meri
Tujh pe zindagani, guilty hai meri
Saabun ki shakal mein, beta tu toh nikla keval jhaag
Jhaag, jhaag… bhaag….
Bhaag bhaag DK Bose, DK Bose
Bhaag bhaag DK Bose DK bhaag…
This “kamina comedy” has Imran Khan’s first lip-lock
and a song written around a gaali that could shock;
whether it’ll be banned or taken “well”ly,
only time will tell for this Delhi Belly.
2. Title track (Dum Maro Dum; 2011)
Unche se uncha banda,
potty pe baithe nanga..
Phir kaahey ki society,
saali kaahey ka paakhanda..
Bheje se kaleje se, kaleje ke khaleje se
Mit jaaye hum, maroge toh jiyo bhi dum maaro dum…
Zeenat Aman’s super heady version had way more dum,
in this one, both Deepika’s clothes and sense are kam;
the techno wannabe video’s yuck; the lyrics are far from yum,
It’s the worst remix in recent times, ask your mum.
3. Munni Badnaam Hui (Dabangg, 2010)
Munni badnaam hui, darling tere liye
Munni ke gaal gulaabi, nain sharabi, chaal nawabi re
Main Zandu Balm hui, darling tere liye…
An alleged rip-off from Ladka Badnaam Hua, a Pakistani track,
it bought both the brand Zandu balm and sexy-trashy back;
along with Malaika, Katrina’s Sheela ki Jawani joined the item pack,
sadly, eve-teased, the real Sheelas and Munnis gave it lotta flak.
4. Jana Gana Mann Rann (Rann, 2010)
Jana gann mana rann hai
Is rann me zakhmi hua hai bhaarat ka bhaagya vidhaata
Punjab sindh gujrat maratha
Ek doosre se ladd ke mar rahe hain
Is desh ne humko ek kiya
Hum desh ke tukdey kar rahe hain
Dravid utkal banga
Khoon bahaa ker, ek rang ka kar diya humne tiranga…
Thankfully, the censor board banned this one
inspired tho’ by our national anthem, we’ll still run,
from the once-brilliant Ram Gopal Varma (ki aag),
from all Factory’s products — bhaag, beta, bhaag!
5. Title track (Aaja Nachle, 2007)
Mohalhe mein kaisi maara maar hai,
bole mochi bhi khud ko sonar hai
sab ko nacha ke nachle,
aaja nachle nachle mere yaar tu nachle
Casteist hai, ban the film, said Dalit leaders in a fit,
you implying cobblers are inferior to goldsmiths, is it?
so, “mere dar pe deewano ki bahaar hai“ replaced it,
anyway, Madhuri Dixit’s comeback was far from a hit.
6. Chaiya Chaiya (Dil Se, 1998)
Jinke sar ko ishq ki chhaaon
Paaon ke neeche jannat hogi
Shaam raat meri kaaynaat
Vo yaar mera sainya sainya
Chal chaiyya chaiyya chaiyya chaiyya
How can heaven (jannat) be below feet (paaon)?
asked a religious group, in mood for a pow-pow;
Whether you’re up in arms with them or not, now now,
you must agree that the train top choreography was wow wow.
7. Chad gaya upar re (Dalaal, 1993)
Are chadh gaya oopar re
atariya pe lotan kabootar re
Panchhi deewana chugh kar daana,
udd gaya phar phar re
atariya pe haa, atariya pe haai
atariya pe lotan kabootar re…
The lyricist’s efforts to be cheaply punny
were nothing short of plain funny;
Ayesha Jhulka ‘n’ Mithunda did thrust and sway,
as the poor kabootars escaped up, up and away.
8. Sexy Sexy Sexy mujhe log bole (Khuddar, 1993)
Sexy, sexy, sexy mujhe log bole,
hi sexy, hullo sexy kyun bole?!
Chehra yeh le jaaon kaha
Husn ko chupao kaha
Romeo hazaar aage peeche daude…
Sexy, sexy, sexy, sexy…
Let’s not forget that it was in 1993
when item gals weren’t as aplenty;
the censor board said Tsk, tsk to Lolo,
so ‘twas yes to “baby”, “sexy” got a no-no.
9. Choli ke peeche (Khalnayak, 1993)
Choli ke peechhe kya hai, choli ke peechhe
Chunari ke neeche kya hai, chunari ke neeche
Choli mein dil hai meraa, chunari mein dil hai mera
Yeh dil mein doongi mere yaar ko, pyaar ko…
Sensuously inquiring what’s behind the blouse,
about this song-and dance was made a huge grouse;
we needn’t get into the whys and hows,
ask any full-blooded man, it does arouse.
10. Khada hain khada hain (Andaz, 1993)
Khada hai, khada hai, khada hai,
dar pe tere aashiq khada hai,
khol khol khol, darwaja khol,
bol bol bol pyar ke do bol,
khada hai, khada hai, khada hai…
Epitomising the double-entendre of the 90s
was this lungi-pillow-khatiya number of a tease;
wonder how Anil Kapoor ‘n’ Juhi Chawla gave it a go,
guess in “show” business, there’s no saying “No!”.
