Since the last two days a certain music channel (B4U Music I think) is advertising that they are going to dedicate their “Awaaz De Kahaan Hain” programme to Mohd. Rafi and that it is going to be spread over 23rd and 24th. And my brain….like time some tube lights of olden days blinked and blinked and realized that (realization after 5 years of being an Atulite) that my daughter’s birthday is close to Rafisaab’s birthday. And that she had written the lyrics for the song from “Amar Akbar Anthony” a long time ago. Also that she had wanted me to write a suitable write up for it.

Post “Anand”(1970) and “Mili” (1975),Hrishikesh Mukherji hit upon the formula of family comedy movies. In these movies, there would be an old fashioned strict patriarch/ matriarch who would regard himself as a know all and he would rule his joint family with an iron hand. The story of the movie would let movie goers have a laugh at the cost of that patriarch/ matriarch. This character was typically played by Om Prakash, Utpal Dutt, Dina Pathak etc.

Though I subscribe to three newspapers daily, I rarely go through much of their contents and the newspapers finally end up with the “raddiwala” after a few months. But on saturdays I look forward to these newspapers, rather to one column of one newspaper. It is the “Swar panchami” column of Hindi newspaper “Dainik Bhaskar”. In this column, Vividh Bharati radio announcer Yunus Khan discusses a few old songs. And as can be guessed, this topic is right up my alley.

“Aapke Deewaane” (1980) is a movie that had some nice songs in it. This is one of the few movies I recall where Rafi and Kishore Kumar sang together. It was perhaps for the last time that the two sang together, since Rafi died shortly thereafter.
