Sometime back I had written that the producers of Tarzan Films always tried to add some kind of masaala to their basic story to make it different and appealing. Today’s film TARZAN AUR JADUI CHIRAG, is easily the Top ranking masaala film in the Tarzan series which included a variety of characters and actors in the film. More about it later…

Gosh, it has been a long trek already, and the night is very late as I complete the preparation and the write up for this post. And I am thinking about the 29 months, that seem to have flown by already. I had signed up for getting email notifications from this blog on 1st October, 2010, and today, it is exactly 2 years and 5 months. And what a heady and euphoric journey it has been so far. And all along the way, it has been raining music – most wonderful, and the best. Many beloved and favorites, many loving memories refreshed again with the help of friends on this bandwagon, and yes, so many, oh so many unheard gems to fall in love with on the first hear.

During my ‘crazy’ days of collecting 78 RPM gramophone records of rare gems of old Hindi films songs, I realised that there were many old Hindi films of early 50s whose gramophone records in 78 RPM format were not available at all. Some of the songs of such films were “sajaan ki ot leke” (Zevaraat, 1949), “yaad aane waale kyon yaad aa rahe hain” (Anmol Ratan, 1950), “preetam meri duniyaa mein do din to rahe hote” (Adaa, 1951), “baandh preeti phool dor” (Malti Madhav, 1951), “main saagar ki mast lahar” (Dhuaan, 1953), “bhool jaa sapne suhaane bhool jaa” (Rajdhani, 1956) etc. I had spent long hours in some of the prominent record shops in Mumbai for buying gramophone records of these and other rare songs but did not succeed at all. Those days, EPs/LPs records had made their presence in the records shops and these were displayed on the front side of the shops while 78 RPM records were relegated to the far end of the shops. In some shops, 78 RPM records were stored in ante-rooms full of dust.

It has been quite a while since I last talked about my dogs. I have in fact so many things to talk about them that I do not know where to begin.

I had discussed it in the past that my dogs, especially Chhote, the younger one would run away from the home. Sometimes Bhhole, the senior of the two , would also run behind Chhote, mainly to accompany him.

In my last post I hoped that Saanp se badhke mera zehar hai would be the last song entry for Zehreela Insaan (1974). Prakashji, with his infinite knowledge of Hindi film songs, though threw water on this hope, when he showed me the existence of this song. Thanks Prakashji! 🙂
