It is time to get on with the series and to finish it. Or it will soon be the day of Rafi sahab’s Birth Anniversary, if I keep dwelling on how to start a post and what to write in it. I have written 24 posts so far in this series and running out of steam. Or ideas-after all how much small talk one can indulge in, given the by and large, one way dialogue of this series. There is no doubt about it, that I have enjoyed doing this series.

Disclaimer: If I appear to be even more incoherent in this post than I usually am (and that would be quite an achievement!), blame it on Saira Banu. :-) The line that comes to mind is “Kya kya na sahey hum ne sitam aap ke khaatir”. :-) Further explanation in the post.

This is a Sonu Nigam song from the 1997 film Pardes. It happens to be one of those songs which were in my original list of desert songs. This is a Subhash Ghai film starring Shah Rukh Khan, Apoorva Agnihotri, Mahima Chaudhary, Amrish Puri, Anupam Kher etc. This was Mahima Chaudhary’s first film. And as per his penchant for naming the heroines he would launch in his movies, Subhash Ghai has given her the name ‘Mahima’. Just like, Meenakshi (Hero) and Madhuri (Ram Lakhan) etc. Having seen the film on its release, this song is there in the memory as one with a car driving fast on the interstate in the middle of desert. On seeing it again Irealised that only a little part of the song is on the road, in a car. The rest of it is in Las Vegas and Disney land.

Though most Hindi movies of 1950s and 1960s had “mainstream” story lines, but a few comedy movies too were produced during that era. Quite a few of these movies had Kishore Kumar in the lead roles. Then there were some other actors who too were making their marks as comedy actors. I S Johar was one such actor.

By the time 90s came along Hindi movies were getting loud, the heros were mannerless, ill-bred uncouth fellows. Sadak Chhap Romeos with a heart of gold, diamonds in the rough who start out rather badly, but by the end, redeem themselves by doing the right thing.

Today (13 october) is the birth anniverasry of Ashok Kumar as well as the death anniversary of Kishore Kumar. After Kishore Kumar’s death on this day 25 years ago, Ashok Kumar stopped celebrating his birthday, naturally. The two brothers, alongwith their third brother Anup Kumar were quite close to each other and we were privileged to see the three brothers together in all the movies that were produced by Kishore Kumar.
