Ashok Kumar or Kumudlal Kunjilal Ganguly (his birth name) would have been 103 if he had been there. Born in 1911, in Bhagalpur Bengal presidency was a laboratory assistant at Bombay Talkies when he was offered a role in 1936 in Jeevan Nayya. Thus began his six-decade long career. Of course by the time I became aware of Ashok Kumar, the actor, he was past doing hero roles and into playing a father or grand father or some such character. But to give credit where due his name would always appear first in the title cards of all these movies. Whether it was the grandpa in “Anuraag”, “Anurodh”, “Khoobsurat” or many such movies. He was very charming in the brief role of Air Force officer in “Aradhana”. He was Vijay Anand’s “Jewel Thief” as well as Brij Sadanah’s “Raja” along with Pran as “Rana” in “Victoria No: 203”. After the 1973 hit Victoria No: 203 this pair was repeated many times.

“You see sir, I can walk English, I can talk English, I can laugh English.”
“Aaj khush toh bahut honge tum”
“Main aaj bhi phenke huye paise nahin uthata”
“Sar zameene Hindustan, aa salaam walekum”. (Nahmji I know I may have written the salutation wrong, but I hope my intention has been conveyed)

These are some powerful dialogues of Amitabh Bachchan, who turned 72 yesterday(11 october 2014). He was a horrible dancer when he made his debut in movies. There is this anecdote which keeps playing on the TV channels where Aruna Irani his co actor in “Bombay To Goa” (1971/72) has narrated how Mehmood the maker of the movie had instructed every one not to laugh at any mistakes Amitabh would commit in the dance sequences. She also goes on to appreciate how over the years he managed to shake a leg or two without making a buffoon of himself. Infact a lot of later year actors who try to ape him on the way to stardom and are not comfortable dancers, also ape his dance steps. And there were many of that breed of actors in the late 70s, 80s and 90s.

On October 10th 2014, the frozen in time diva Bhanurekha Ganeshan (the birth name of the person we know as just Rekha) turns 60. I had a tough time trying to select a song for the occasion. At first I thought I will do the usual of finding an Amitabh- Rekha song as their birthdates are 10th and 11th October. Then on going through “the list of songs movie wise” and comparing it with the list on MYSWAR.com I realized that the song sung by Rekha in her own voice is still to be posted.

Today’s song is from Border (1997) the war film based on the ’71 Indo-Pak war. It was by J.P.Dutta who up until then had made a few Rajasthan based stories— Ghulami, Yateem, Hathyar, Batwara, Kshatriya etc. Them he made 3 movies based on the life of those who live in the Indo Pak border —Border, Refugee & LOC Kargil. This shows his general fascination for the desert and some love for the Indo Pak relation. His movies have always had songs which decry the border drawn between the 2 countries.

English Vinglish (2012) was a movie directed by Gauri Shinde. It was a sort of come back movie for Sridevi. Why I say comeback is because she was never out of sight. Prior to that she was seen in a few ads selling soap or some such thing. Also she was very much visible at various awards functions. But when I saw the promos for the movie I decided I had to see it come what may. And I was not disappointed. Mind you I will not say I am her greatest fan. It is just that I liked the theme on which it was based. It had no preaching to it. It was not a family drama in the traditional sense of the term. It talked about how a mother, whatever she does to please the family, is still considered secondary as she was not conversant in English. Then the movie proceeds to show that how half the world is not English conversant and how the other half treats them. Also what I liked about the movie is that the mother in law of the character played by Sridevi is very supportive of her in her endeavor of commercially showing off her skill of making laddoos. (I should say that she reminded me of my mom in law).

Yesterday evening Vividh Bharati was playing a whole lot of songs penned by Gulzar in the last two decades. And I was like “Oh My God! What a selection to post on the upcoming occasion of Gulzar Saab’s birthday”. But then I had this problem of zeroing into the right song for the blog as each and every song was a WOW! Just when I had thought of an appropriate number the next one would follow and I felt “nahin re, this should be the one!”. In the process I had selected all the songs played in that half an hour.

Hullo to all atulites

Recently I had a mail from our Sudhirji reminding me about the ongoing build up to the target 10000. He also said that I could redraft any of my previous unpublished write ups and here I have lapped up the suggestion.

Actually when we were racing towards 10000 I had thought that we will be reaching 10000 on June 27th and it will coincide with RD Burman’s birthday. But that was not to be as after all Atul has his responsibilities towards work and family which are a natural first in any one’s life. So we have reached Gaana number 9931. Chalo lets March Onto 10000.

I am not a great travelogue writer, though my husband is always after me to write something about the various trips we undertake. But this time I am going to try my hand at describing a trip I went for in the first few days of May. To accomplish that I have decided to take a break from my list of romantic songs (in my march onto 10000) and write about a lovely encounter with a known unknown person who is a friend for the last 5- 6 years without ever having met.

So continuing in my line of light hearted romantic songs here is one more. Now this one is from the 1978 Dharmendra- Hema Malini – Prem Chopra starrer “Azaad”. This song is in the voice of Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. It has music by RDB and the songs were written by Anand Bakshi. That means the songs from this movie were all great on the ear. What more does one expect when AB and RDB collaborate?
