Mera tesu yahin adaa

Posted on: August 18, 2013


Though I can talk a lot on old Hindi movies and music, I am quite out of my depth if I am asked to discuss the current Hindi movies and their music. Most of them are not worth discussing in any case, I am told, but some to them have the ability to catch even my attention.

Here are the details of a 2007 movie called “The Blue Umbrella” that are mentioned in the blurb on the jacket of the VCD/DVD.

The blue umbrella is a heartwarming adaption of the beloved novella of the same name by Ruskin Bond. It is a film about desire, about the zealous attempt to fulfill it and finally its conquest.

The story unfurls with a discovery of a vibrant ‘Blue umbrella’ by Biniya, a ten year old girl from an idyllic mountain village in north India. She has never seen anything more striking and beautiful. Neither has Nandkishore Khatri.

Nandkishore Khatri runs a small tea stall in the village. He is miserly old man who likes to eat pickle and swindle kids of their little possessions. Nandkishore is smitten helplessly by the beauty of the blue umbrella and goes to remarkable lengths to acquire it but fails repeatedly. He has given up all hopes and declares that he will forsake and move on…

However, Nandkishore is not the only one to covet the umbrella. The umbrella’s arrival disturbs the tranquility and harmony of the whole village.

Biniya’s secret weapon gives her an enviable power over the small town, as the umbrella now acquires a mythical status.
One fine day the umbrella goes missing!

The villagers are sympathetic to her misery but are convinced that Biniya’s carelessness has resulted in the loss. Alone and betrayed Biniya decides to take over.

What follows is a journey of Biniya and Nandkishore to a discovery, which is bitter-sweet and has wisdom far beyond the blue umbrella.
The ‘blue umbrella’ being a metaphorical tale, is yet so contemporary. It questions the basic premise of mankind’s quest for superiority over others. It raises pertinent questions on the concept of material happiness and futility of the whole process.”

I have not watched this movie but I have watched “The Gods Must Be crazy” (1980) in which a coka cola bottle falls from an aircraft to the ground in Africa where the primitive Bushmen and how they deal with the coke bottle provides the core of the story.

I had loved watching “The Gods Must be Crazy”(1980) and “The Blue Umbrella” (2005) sounds equally promising.

Curiously enough, Ruskin Bond wrote “The Blue Umbrella” in 1980 in the same year when “The Gods Must be crazy” was released. I have no idea if his tale was inspired by the movie or he thought up his story independently.

On the occasion of Gulzar’s birth anniversary today (18 august 2013), here is a song from “The Blue Umbrella” (2005). It is sung by Upanga Pandya, Aparna, Sahiti and Sneha. The interesting lyrics (full of witty turns of phrases) are written by Gulzar. Vishal Bhardwaj, the director of this movie composed the music as well.

Lyrics of this song and other details were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.
