Today (9 july 2015) is the 77th birth anniversary of Sanjeev Kumar (9 July 1938 – 6 November 1985). In a movie world where most actors were afraid of playing roles other than the ones they were typed cast in, Sanjeev Kumar would play any kind of roles, without worrying about his past image as an actor. He would play the roles that other heroes would not touch with a barge pole, and he would carry them off with aplomb. He had played roles of mentally challenged man (in Khilona-1970), Deaf and dumb (in Koshish), father of an actor older than him (father of Shashi Kapoor in Trishul), Husband, father as well as father in law of the same actress (Jaya Bhaduri) in different movies, etc. And I have not yet mentioned his role of Thakur in Sholay (1975). In “Naya Din Nayi Raat”, he played nine roles !

In brief, Sanjeev Kumar was an actor who never allowed himself to be typedcast. He accepted any kinds of roles, not worrying how that role was going to affect his image. And he came up with flying colours in all these roles.

This article is written by Raja, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Earlier today, Atul informed me that we are now closing in on 1400 songs for Asha Bhosle on the blog and maybe I’d like to do a write-up for her 1400th?

To date, I have never ever refused a request from Atul to do a write-up – and today was no exception. I immediately said “Sure”. For it is not just a pleasure, but also an honour, to do a write-up here on this blog. And if I ever have to say “no, sorry” to Atul, it would only be because of genuine constraints, never because of any other reason.

Thankfully that day hasn’t come yet – and hopefully it will not. Anything I can do to contribute to this blog in any capacity, I’d be happy to do.

Very little is known about music director Ram Laxman. Initially there were two of them, viz Ram Kadam and Vijay Patil who composed music as Ram Laxman. Ram Kadam died in 1976. But Vijay Patil continued to compose music as Ram Laxman. In fact, most well known movies with music by Ram Laxman came after 1976 when it was Vijay Patil alone composing music as Ram Laxman. Movies like “Maine Pyaar Kiya” (1989) and “Hum Aapke Hain Kaun”(1994) are the compositions of Ram Laxman.

There are several songs that play at the very beginning of the movie as the credits begin rolling in on screen. I have not yet had a category for them, but I think I should call such songs as movie opening songs. They open the movie like how opening batsmen open an innings in a cricket match.

Bappi Lahiri is widely held responsible for the deterioration in the quality of Bollywood music in 1980s. But that is not now how he started his career. He had begun with some nice music in Zakhmee and Chalte Chalte. He was getting nowhere with good music, but when he gave chaalu music, he was instantly successful, and that made him cynical enough to decide that he needed to put crass comercialisation above classy music to forge ahead in his career.

But Bappi Lahiri was capable of giving good music and he would often surprise fans by coming up with great music in the midst of shrill and plagiarised disco songs.
