I have never met Atul, he is not even my Facebook friend! But over the past few years I feel I have known him for a very long time. I know him as a very kind and gracious person who not only posted a few of my guest posts on his blog but was even very, very generous with his comments on my blog which has nothing to do with film songs. Maybe the reason for this is that we both grew up in middle class households in the same era, and that too within 130 km of each other (he in Ranchi and I in Jamshedpur, both small towns)

When Atul wrote to me in his usual polite way the other day that I must write a post on this song I was taken aback. I have been a (mostly silent) reader of his blog and I have even written a few pieces for it but none for a very long time. Perhaps he thought I might like to do this piece on Don’s “Khaike paan banaraswala” as most of my early pieces were on Amitabh Bachchan’s movies of that era as I am an unabashed AB fan. What he did not know when he wrote to me is that I had another “qualification” for doing this piece; I studied for five years in Banaras.

To me, “Amar, Akbar, Anthony”, a 1977 release, defined the Bollywood of late 70’s to mid-80’s. The ubiquitous lost-and-found formula, rocking songs, maar-peet, vendetta, incredibly hirsute villains…. you name it and it was there. It was a multi-starrer too, multi-starrer being a buzz-word in the era. A multi-starrer to beat all multi-starrers!

It has been one of those big mysteries of Bollywood which I have not been able to fathom yet. Just why did Kala Patthar not become one of the biggest block-busters of all times! Heck, it is not even among the top 50 grossers of 1970’s (it was released in 1979)

The charm of Hindi films for me began from the time I began watching them avidly. The charm lay in those unique features of the Hindi film; multi-starrer, great fight scenes, action-packed, zingy songs and scintillating dialogues. If this was coupled with a lost-and-found brother/friend plot, with messages on religious harmony, and with good triumphing over evil, what more could a teenager want!

I had stumbled onto Atul’s admirable effort a few months ago when I was looking for the lyrics of “Aaj pahli tarikh hai” for a non-film piece for my own blog. After I posted the piece, I sent the link to Atul who not only read that piece, but also several others on my blog. He has been prompt -and generous- with his comments. Over time we had sporadic email exchanges. We discovered that not only we had a common interest (Hindi film songs) but also our backgrounds; similar age, similar geography (he from Ranchi and I from Jamshedpur; both in Jharkhand) and both from middle-class families.

May 5th 1978 was a most awaited day for an Amitabh Bachchan fan. That day his latest movie Trishul got released. Zanjeer, Deewar, Sholay, Adalat and Khoon Pasina had been released in the preceding years and had proved to be super-duper hits. Amitabh Bachchan’s distinctive “positioning” as the “angry young man” in the rather cluttered world of Bollywood heroes was firmly established. That the above-mentioned movies were interspersed with blockbusters like Kabhi Kabhie (romantic hero) and Amar Akbar Anthony (comedian) only helped to intensify the hero’s aura among his fans.

Two songs from this movie have already been posted on this blog, and Atul has gone public with his negative views on the movie. He found the movie too contrived, too silly even. Maybe he has a point of view, but may I present the alternate view.
