Chandidas is a 1932 Bangla social drama film directed by Debaki Bose. The film was produced by New Theatres, Calcutta and was their first big success. The story revolves around the 15th century poet-saint #Chandidas who acts out against the deep-rooted bigotry against caste and the hypocrisy of society while he falls in love with a washer woman named Rami.
In this #romantic song, expressing the mythology of spiritual love between the divine Krishna and his devotee Radha, Chandidas is singing: hey friend, after hundred years, friend will meet you while the moon would be happy and the honeybees would be fixed on the lilies. The body would be undulated with juice and obsession and candle would be put off for union. Don’t touch me friend, maintain distance, see your moon face with mirror, kajal of eyes are so dark and deep. I have seen that face rising up in the morning and the day will go well today. The juice of betel-nut has colored the body. Please look back at me and let me see you with satisfaction. Spot of vermilion shuffled and body became a bit dirty. This is a beautiful #love song as well as #Kirtan song of old Bengal.
