Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aah, coming back to Bombay. :)

In the first five episodes of this series, I have covered the Bombay gangouts that took place in December last year.  However, my tales of Bombay are not yet done. Moving forward with this series, I am going to be writing about my personal experiences with this enigmatic city which is a confluence of contradictions.

Amitabh – The Later Decades – 5
—————————————————–

The carrying capacity of this man is amazing. There is an aura about him that continues to draw the audiences. The measure of his success and popularity is pretty much sustained, as his fans continue to return to the cinema/video time after time after time. I believe that the secret behind this sustenance has been his capacity to re-invent himself, and his portrayals.

I must frankly admit that I have kept away from the mainstream cinema, mostly after the seventies faded away, and a new order both in terms of performers, as well as music, came on to the scene.  The time also coincided with the years amounting to almost two and a half decades that I was traveling, and away from India most of the time.  The viewing of current films was random and patchy at the best, and that I never went out of my way to acquire and watch a current film.  Unless it was recommended to me, and that too, by someone whose judgement I would trust.

Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan – 4

         Bombay Gangout – Part 4
         After The Meet.

After the gangout session, as everyone dispersed and proceeded to their respective destinations, Srinivas (SignalTimer) and I headed to the local train station, that is just like across the road from the gangout meeting place.  We took the train going south; we had a visit scheduled, to meet another common friend who is beset with the same passion of the Hindi film music from the Golden Era.  The name is Kushal Gopalka.  Some of the group members in Bombay may be familiar with this name, as he is active in this space, in a very different and interesting manner.

First came “Mother India”(1957) and then came “Son Of India”(1962). Both were produced by Mehboob Khan. Title role in Mother India was played by Nargis whereas the titkle role in “Son of India” was played by Sajid Khan. This Sajid Khan is different from the Sajid Khan that we are familiar with. This Sajid Khan was an adopted son of Mehboob Khan and he acted not only in “Son of India”(1962) but in “Mother India”(1957) as well, playing child version of Sunil Dutt in “Mother India”(1957).

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 1
————————————————-

I remember a very interesting scene from a film, seen long back on Doordarshan, whose name I am not able to recall right now.  The scene is in a moving train.  I think it is a Kishore Kumar film, but not very sure.  A person is selling ‘barfi’ in the train.  (‘Barfi’ is an Indian sweet made from milk and sugar).  He is carrying a tray full of barfi pieces, and is trying to catch the attention of the travelers, to sell and to earn.  He is not having much success.  He comes in front of Kishore Kumar, and a dialogue ensues.  Kishore asks him why should I buy this barfi from you.  The seller gives some very simple answers like it is good to eat and he needs to earn money.  Kishore tells him he will never be able to make a sale with such kind of answers.  Then he offers to make the sales pitch for him.  He conjures up a funny and interesting jingle about the barfi on the spot, and tries to catch the attention of fellow travellers, singing the jingle he has just created.  Of course he is able to make a lot more sales.  The seller is very impressed, and the two strike a friendship that lasts through the film.

When I initially took up this song for sharing, I only intended to share the lyrics. But after listening to this song, the subject of the song prompted me to share my own experience with it which is ‘Lottery’…

Here is what I wish to share:

         Bombay Gangout – Part 2
         After the Breakfast.

After having amicably negotiated the breakfast time, the gang members descended again to the secret basement chambers, to start the day’s proceedings in earnest.  I will have to now write a little bit more about Bombay syndicate members, as we were getting more and more familiar with every passing minute.  The most energetic and the most engaging personality of the hour was definitely the IndiaMan.  He has a joke ready for every occasion, for every topic. Let me tell you why I used the epithet – ‘the antithetic patella specialist’ for him.

        Breakfast. . .

On Sunday (21 Dec), when the gangout happened in Bombay, many things converged together, including a lot of birds of the same feather. And with it also came the ideas around another new series (this one).  But more about the series later.

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?

Ah, it feels so sweet. :-)
