Check out the original version of the Dhan Te Nan Song from Kaminey. Vishal Bhardwaj composed this song originally for a telefilm called Dhan Te Nan and reused it in Kaminey. The video has Sharman Joshi in it and is sung by Suresh Wadkar, Roop Kumar Rathod and Rekha Bhardwaj.
Vishal himself confirmed this in a interview.
““Dhan te nan was not designed specially for Kaminey. I had first used it in a telefilm called Dhan Te Nan. I had used that catchphrase and the tune in that telefilm. Dhan te nan is a phrase that belongs to our film and music culture. For us Indians cinema is the biggest cultural entity. We often borrow illustrations and speech patterns from our films. Dhan te nan is used during bedtime stories for dramatic effect. Whenever I used to tell mey son Aasman stories I’d go ‘Dhan te nan’ to create drama. This phrase remained with me.”
Listen at 1 min 20 sec and the song also sounds somewhat like Chappa Chappa Charkha Chale from Maachis. Here is the Chapa Chapa Charke Chale Song from Maachis starting from the point where it is similar.
