So 31st January sees the pretty Priety Zinta turn 40. She completes 15 years in Bollywood. I agree yeh toh bachchi hain as far as our blog is concerned. But kya Karen? She is everything that we all love. A movie star who owns a cricket team ;-)

I am at a loss as to what all I like about her. The deep dimples in her cheek; or her natural way of acting. I have seen many of her movies, and I rate her as an accomplished actress. Preity is born and brought up in Simla, and completed her education there.  Interesting to note that she graduated with a degree in English Literature and then went on to do her post graduation in Criminal Psychology.  But of course, as we have always seen, destiny is to be blamed for all variations that happen in life.  She chanced to accompany a friend to an audition for advertising films, and although not on the list, she was selected for the Cadbury’s Perk Chocolate commercial.

One thing led to another and she met with Shekhar Kapoor who offered her a role in his upcoming film ‘Tara Rum Pum Pum’, opposite to Hrithik Roshan.  Eventually this film was cancelled, but Shekhar Kapoor introduced her to Mani Ratnam who was in the process of making ‘Dil Se’.  She took on the role as the fiancée of Shahrukh Khan (Manisha Koirala playing the other romantic angle in the film).  It turns out that her presence in the film is limited to twenty minutes of screen time.  Even with such an abbreviated role, she was able to capture the attention, to win a nomination for the Filmfare’s best supporting actress for the year.  Although this specific award did not come her way, she did earn the Filmfare award for the best debut for an actress, for that year, for her performances in ‘Dil Se’ and ‘Soldier’.  The year was 1998.

1999 saw her appear in a Telegu film, and in the film ‘Sangharsh’, she played the role of CBI officer who falls for a captured killer, played by Akhsay Kumar.  But her breakthrough came with her role in the 2000 film ‘Wah! Kya Kehna’ in which she assays the role of an unwed teenage mother, who is ostracized by her family and friends.  She is humiliated by the snobbish high society as well as her college mates. (Reminiscent of Aradhana, right). The movie goes on to tell the story of this girl who has the spirit to take on everyone who is against the unborn child, as she feels that the child has committed no crime and it is the parents who should be punished. She also questions as to why always in this kind of a situation the girl is cast off when the boy goes scot free. Wah! Kya Kehna! Is what I felt about the movie.  The powerful performance now brought her the nomination for the Filmfare best actress award for the year.

In 2002, she was part of the group of friends in the film ‘Dal Chaahta Hai’, whose destinies take them away from each other, and then back together again.  The next year 2003 was her best year with two colossal hits – ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ and ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’, the former being the biggest grosser of the year and the latter, in which she plays the role of an insecure and angry young Indian-American woman who falls in love with a man who has a fatal heart disease. Her performance won her the Filmfare award for Best Actress for that year.  The teenager tomboy had come of age.

Fast forward to 2008, and she plays the role of a young Indian woman in Deepa Mehta’s film, ‘Heaven On Earth’.  The lady gets married to an NRI from Canada, migrates to Toronto and becomes a victim of severe domestic abuse.  Her performance earned her the Best Actress (Silver Hugo) award at the 2008 Chicago International Film Festival.

Today’s song is from the film ‘Veer Zaara’, that was the top hit film of 2004.  Directed by Yash Chopra for his own banner of Yash Raj Films, the film is set against the backdrop of the face-off between India and Pakistan.  The film follows the unfortunate love story of an Indian Air Force pilot, and a Pakistani woman hailing from a rich political family of Lahore, who fall in love and unbeknownst to each other’s existence, are separated for 22 years.  After this long gap of time, a young Pakistani lawyer, finds out about this Indian pilot in a Pakistani prison and upon listening to his story, tries to get him freed.

The high point of the film is its music.  A matter of nostalgia for the lovers of music of the golden era of Hindi films, the music of ‘Veer Zaraa’ is based on old compositions by the late Madan Mohan.  His son, Sanjeev Kohli, did the search within his father’s archives of unused melodies, and arranged a set of fabulous scores to tune the songs with lyrics by Javed Akhtar.

The thing that I love about this song, is the very persona herself.  The song is all about the tomboy-ish personality that we see and read about.  The performance is unrestrained and with abandon she is expressing herself.  Another very significant high point of this song is a brief visit that the protagonist takes with her grandmother to the Nankana Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan, giving a rare view of this holiest of the holy Sikh pilgrimage center, that is inaccessible to most of us in India.

In the video clip, we also see Zohra Sehgal, the grandmother, Kiron Kher, the mother and Divya Dutta, friend and companion.  With greetings once again to Preity.
Enjoy the song.

Today is the 76th birthday of Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma of the Shiv-Hari duo. So on this occasion I was going through the list of movies for which the duo have given music and came across this song from Yash Chopra’s Chaandni (1989). And I thought bingo! Apt song for saluting the genius of Shiv- Hari and for the celebrations in our family that begins from tomorrow.

Exactly a year ago we had a song from “Kaho Na Pyaar Hain” posted on the blog. Then in the month of September my Peevesie sent me the lyrics for a song from the same movie as Lucky Ali’s birth date was approaching. But things just didn’t fall in place. Now that the calendar has changed let us revisit the movie that made Hrithik Roshan an over night heart throb of millions. (Oh god what a ghhisa pita word I have used—Heart Throb). This man has completed 15 years in Bollywood. He has had a mixed bag of fortunes as far as Hits-And-Flops are concerned. Even in his worst movie he looked earnest to impress.

There are few south Indian singers who made a mark for themselves in the world of Hindi film Music. I think Yesudas is one of them who was followed by SPB etc. I am a child as far as knowledge regarding earlier singers is concerned. I am sure there might have been others before Yesudas or Dassettan as we Keralites love to call him {a matter of convenience for me to call myself a Keralite as far as this allegiance to this singer is concerned otherwise I am a proud Mumbaikar ;-)} .

Quiz time. What is the result of the marriage of an exceptional script writer- lyricist- poet with another script and story writer who was also a child star to add? And what happens if one adds a small amount of talented step mother whose own family is full of literary giants?

One thing that is common among all of us who follow this blog or films is that we are all fans of one or other star be it an actor or music director or lyricist or film maker or singer. Right? Now what happens if we have the advantage of being in the film making business itself? We get an opportunity to showcase our love for our favourites. As today’s birthday girl Farah Khan had.

January 7th is the birthday of Reena Roy the actress from the 70s and 80s. she was the one with an earthy look when she wore Indian clothes and could also carry western outfits without looking out of place. She made a successful pair with Jeetendra and Shatrughan Sinha. She also had a few successes with Sunil Dutt, Dharamendra and Kamalhaasan. She was a decent dancer too—one can’t forget her disco numbers in “Sanam Teri Kasam” and “Rocky”. She has been part of the star cast of Amitabh Bachchan’s “Naseeb” and “Andha Kanoon” but has never been paired opposite him romantically. She was last seen in J.P.Dutta’s “Refugee” as Abhishek’s foster mother.

Hullo atulites

I just returned from work and saw that we have a post for remembering Jaidev on his death anniversary. But none to wish the AR Rahman on his birthday today. So I thought let me do my bit. So here is a song from the 1992 “Roja” starring Madhu, Arvind Swamy, Pankaj Kapoor etc. This I had seen when my son was a little boy in arms and we were living in this tiny township in Tamil Nadu. The waterfall shown in the movie is in hills that were right behind our mill colony there. And I have visited it a few times in my 5 year stay there. Also today happens to be my son’s 25th birthday. All together a day of nostalgia. So I think this song fits the occasion as far as I am concerned.
