Today is Raja Swaminathan’s second birthday! On this blog, I mean! I don’t know Raja’s age, but what I see and hear from him, he must be very young and very active. As many of you must already know, Raja is a passionate blogger. Yes, passionate is the word, which I would use to describe Raja in one word. Raja is passionate about politics, social politics and not party politics. Yes, he has a keen sense of justice and injustice. He is aware of the many wrong things going on in this world. I admire this quality in him very highly. What I admire about him is also his ability to put all his wonderful thoughts in words. When I sit and torture myself with the composition of each sentence. To him his nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs flow with an ease which would put a bubbling stream to shame. What’s more they flow in perfect syntax. Then he also has a wonderful sense of humour, particularly his PJs are very funny. And going by all his posts and comments on fb, Raja comes across as a very nice person. Now, you must have realized that I have not met him, although I’ve a feeling I already know him quite well. Dearest Raja, please try to always remain the person you are, Happy Birthday!

Prem naam hai mera. . .
Prem Chopra. . .

Thus happens the surprise introduction of this villain cum character artist, in the film ‘Bobby’ (1973). I call it a surprise because his name does not appear in the credits at the start of the film. ‘Bobby’ was one of the films that I got to see on the big screen, with family. Prem Chopra would be a familiar artist in the nascent mind of the school going ‘yours truly’, thanks to films like ‘Shaheed’ and ‘Upkar’. And so, when abruptly and unexpectedly on to the shining tinsel screen, appears this familiar face and the familiar voice, chewing on a blade of grass, and making his presence felt in a very lewd and unexpected manner, I remember I was aghast – “arre, is ka to naam bhi nahin hai, ye kaise aa gaya?”. For a split second, the thought did cross my mind – “cinema waalon ne koi galat reel laga di hai”. But immediately as the film continued, that thought would be discarded. “Achhaa, aisa bhi hota hai. B’gair naam ke bhi actor film mein aa jaate hain”.

Now this gets cosmopolitically interesting. She is from a Keralite family that settled in Mumbai about a century ago; herself she is born and brought up in Mumbai, got married to a gentleman from Tamilnadu (I think he won’t mind if we call him Peevesie’s Dad), and currently settled in Bangalore. (Maybe she can head a movement for national integration). Interestingly, today she is back in her hometown – Cochin, as this write up gets published. But that is just for a short weekend vacation, she assures me.

Not being a speaker of Hindi, I know that I miss a great deal of nuance in both song and storyline in not understanding the lyrics to Hindi film songs. I am sure that is the case here too, but all the same the picturization of this song is so packed with information that for once I don’t really feel that deprived. His trademark lack of subtlety is one of Manmohan Desai’s greatest gifts to non-Indian fans of Hindi cinema, as is his trademark lunacy to all of mankind. An abundance of both mark this song as one of my favorites.

Three Hindi films of the 50s which had created lots of hype during their pre-released days were ‘Aan’ (1952), ‘Jhanak Jhanak Paayal Baaje’ (1955) and ‘Navrang’ (1959). They were all made in Technicolor. With nearly all the films made during that time and earlier in black and white, there was curiosity among film buffs to watch these Technicolor films. While none of these films had good story lines, they all ran in the theaters for a long time. I remember ‘Jhanak Jhanak Paayal Baaje’ (1955) had completed 100 weeks of run in Metro theater and ‘Navrang’ (1959) ran for over 50 weeks in Liberty theater of Mumbai.

I was looking for a song of Dev Anand for this Rafi series. Much as I wanted a composition by S. D. Burman to feature here as a typical Dev Anand song, I could not find one which was yet to be posted. What I found instead was this song from the movie “Dushman” (1957). This is a Rafi solo starting with the alphabet ‘N”. On screen Dev Anand is singing this on the streets, with kids in the area following him around. He is in disguise dressed up as a ‘magician’, singing repeatedly ‘main jaadugar Bangal kaa” so as to emphasise his profession.
