Kudi Kunwaari

This is a typical cheesy Bollywood number from this movie titled ‘Hadh Kar Di Aapne’ which was released in the year 2000. The people you see dancing around are honey-eyed doll – Rani Mukherjee and Govinda who was greatly sought after for his dance moves, which may be a tad too dramatic and over-the-top for today’s Gen-Z. He was known for his garish taste in attire; and his personality and acting skills reflect exactly that. But, that’s what I loved about the 90’s and early 2000s. So, folks who cannot stand colourful fun and drama, maybe give this one a pass. Keeping the tone of the song in mind, I’m going to write a cheesy poem too. I hope you enjoy reading it and maybe smile with nostalgia or fun too.

Kudi Kunwaari – Ruelha

A beautiful spinster.
I have no mister.
Why do you ignore me, handsome?
I'm no ordinary girl or someone random.
I spend my time coming after.
Following you, waiting for an answer.
But you walk away from me like this.
And won't even let me steal a kiss.

I don't understand your problem.
Come on, commit to me, solemn.
Let's be together as one.
Wouldn't that be so much fun?
Oh boy, you're quite a mess.
You are holding me to a test.
Why do you turn your gaze away.
All along, in front of you I dance and sway.

Just look at my silky strands.
Other boys beg to just shake my hand.
But, I am attracted only to you.
So I follow you around like glue.
Trust me, I am that queen.
Who appears in your dream scene.
Walk with me, my darling.
Because I find you quite charming.

Look around you, the weather is attempting to help me.
It's becoming romantic, naughty and chilly.
I'm so crazy about you.
And this is what you choose to do!
A beautiful spinster.
I have no mister.
Why do you ignore me, handsome?
I'm no ordinary girl or someone random.

Lyrics and Translation: This song is mostly in Hindi but has a bit of Punjabi too; and then, there’s a conversation in English as well. It’s an old song so there is no English translation available anywhere else so …check out my excellent translation skills πŸ˜‰

Kudi kunwari tere
Peeche peeche peeche peeche
Jaata kaha hai soniya
Aise nazar kare
Neech neech neech neech
Jaata kaha hai soniya
Mainu galti ho gayi ho gayi
Mainu maaf karde ok
Kudi kunwari tere
Peeche peeche peeche peeche
Jaata kaha hai soniya
Aise nazar kare
Neech neech neech neech
Jaata kaha hai soniya

A young unmarried girl is
after, after, after, after you.
Where are you going away, handsome?
And this is how you turn your gaze
downwards, downwards, downwards, downwards.
Where are you going away, handsome?
I made a mistake, okay.
Forgive me, okay.
A young unmarried girl is
after, after, after, after you.
Where are you going away, handsome?
And this is how you turn your gaze
downwards, downwards, downwards, downwards.
Where are you going away, handsome?

By the way what’s your problem
By the way tumhe kya karna hai
By the way kuch vaade
Karne hai unhe pura karna hai
Sang jeena hai sang marna hai
To karlo na jo karna Hai. Don’t bother me. Really?

Girl: By the way, what's your problem?
Boy: By the way, how does it concern you?
Girl: By the way, there are some promises to make.
Then, to fulfill them.
To live together, to die together.
Boy: So, do what you want to do, then.
Just don't bother me.
Girl: Really?

Reshamsi zulfe behki nigahen
Tujhko bulaye aa laut chal
Tere safar ki mai humsafar hoon
Mere sanam mere saath chal
Thaam le baah
Meri samajh le ishara
Koi lagta nahin hai
Mujhe tujhse pyaara
Mera chain churake
Naaja aise naaja aaja aaja
Tere sapno ki rani roke
Jaata kaha hai soniya
Kudi kunwari tere
Peeche peeche peeche peeche
Jaata kaha hai soniya

Silky hair, raving gaze.
They're calling you. Come, return now.
In your journey, I am your journey-partner{lifepartner}
With me darling. With me, you must walk.
Hold/stop your wantonness.
Understand my hints.
I don't find anyone else,
more adorable than you.
You took away my peace.
Now do'nt walk away like this. Come, come, come.
The queen of your dreams is stopping you.
Where are you going, handsome?
A young unmarried girl is
after, after, after, after you.
Where are you going away, handsome?

Kya mastiyon ka mausam hai yaara
Mausam ka kehna tu maan le
Youwan hai ek saawan jaisa
Rehta nahi yeh sada jaan le
Tujhe meri kasam aur kar na sitam
Kahin aisa na ho
Mujhe lag jaaye gham
Yeh jawani teri hoke
Main deewani teri hoke
Aaja tu bhi deewana hoke
Jaata kaha hai soniya
Aise nazar kare
Neech neech neech neech
Jaata kaha hai soniya
Mainu galti ho gayi ho gayi
Mainu maaf karde ok
Jaata kaha hai soniya.

What a mischievous weather it is, my friend.
Pay heed to what the weather is saying.
Swear upon me, don't commit more attrocities.
It should'nt be like this, that
I become depressed.
My youth has become yours.
I have become crazy about you.
Now, you also join and become crazy.
Where are you going away, handsome?
And this is how you turn your gaze
downwards, downwards, downwards, downwards.
Where are you going away, handsome?
I made a mistake, okay.
Forgive me, okay.
Where are you going away, handsome?

        1. Lol, give in to the wife.
          That is the secret to a happy life.
          If Kat wants it blue.
          That’s what you should do.
          Green, forget it.
          That’s an unimportant bit.

          1. Haha, but I could never get used to the fact that almost every movie had a song and dance number in it! Even that movie about Mungal Pandey!
            Oh and when I discovered that most of the female songs were sung by their grandmother haha πŸ˜‰
