Why do Imran Khan, Anushka Sharma and Pankaj Kapur’s hearts flutter?

While Anushka confidently shakes her patli kamariya in this desi number, the male actors too, Imran and especially Pankaj Kapur (who’s we realised is a super cute dancer too!) are seen putting their best steps forward

This song from the Imran Khan-Anushka Sharma-Pankaj Kapur starrer Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola is a typical Vishal Bhardwaj number, and we wonder what’s with the lyrics. Penned by Vishal’s favourite lyricist Gulzar, this track instantly reminds us of their previous collaboration – Omkara. There’s this one line in the title song which goes Tambu khola tab khullam khulla. Well, what does that mean? Here we go folks, have fun; we are sure we couldn’t have found a better song for lost in translation.

Gulle ki begi, begi ka gulla

Jab tambu khola, tab khullam khulla

Pehle woh bola phir main bola

Hey matru ki bijlee ka mandola

Hey matru ki bijlee ka mandola

Matru re matru matru ki bijlee

Bijlee ka mandola

Hey matru ki bijlee ka mandola

Jack’s queen or queen’s jack

When open the tent, then publicly open

First he said, then I said

Hey matru’s bijlee’s mandola

Hey matru’s bijlee’s mandola

Matru oh matru, matru’s bijlee

Bijlee’s mandola

Hey Matru’s bijlee’s Mandola

 

Chatak chatak dil chatak chatak dil

Chatak chatak dil chatka

Patak patak phir patak patak phir

Patak patak phir patka

Haa chatak chatak dil chatak chatak dil

Chatak chatak dil chatka re

Patak patak patak patak phir patka re

Crack crack heart crack crack heart

Crack crack heart cracked

Smash smash again, smash smash again

Smash smash again smashed

Yes crack crack heart crack crack heart

Crack crack heart cracked oh!

Smash smash smash smash again smashed oh!

 

Hariya ka dhan dola

Bijlee ka tan dola

Re Matru ka man dola haaye

Aate ki roti, mitti ka chulha

Pidhi pe dulhan, moodhe pe dulha

Hariya’s wealth shaken

Bijlee’s body shaken

Oh Matru’s heart shaken ahh

Flour’s bread, mud’s stove

Pidhi on bride, moodhe on groom

 

Pehle woh bola phir main bola

Hey matru ki bijlee ka mandola

Matru ki bijlee ka mandola

First he said, then I said

Hey Matru’s bijlee’s mandola

Matru’s bijlee’s mandola!Subscribe to me on YouTube
