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.

It was 2006 and I was still in the US.  A friend passed to me a DVD of the film ‘Paheli’, which had been released in India a year earlier.  For all that had transpired in the interim years, this film was a kind of re-intro to Hindi films.  I took it up seriously, only because the film was directed by Amol Palekar.  And knowing him, I knew I could expect to see some serious cinema.

I was not disappointed.  Two things, rather three things stand out in my mind from this film.  I got to see a most hilarious brief performance by Rajpal Yadav, as the messenger, who is confounded to see that the person who sent the message is also present at the destination where the message is to be delivered.  I got introduced to a husky and becoming dame by the name Rani Mukherjee, who images would haunt my mind.  And then I got to see Amitabh in a supporting role that I did not expect to see.  The image of the leading man and in control was so well set into my memory.  In this film, he appears near the very end, in the role of a shepherd in the desert, who helps to sort out the mystery of two look alikes, one of whom is obviously not the true person.  Out of the many other emotions and reactions that came to my mind, the one that stood out was that even in this small guest appearance, an appearance as an outsider to the machinations of the main set of characters of the film, he exuded a stature of confidence and ease, that practically no other performer in the frame exhibited.  He was in control, and his relaxation showed.  That was my first introduction to the new Amitabh, after my mind and life’s routines had shut out the films beyond the 1970s.

Today, I present this song from the 2007 film ‘Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom’.  Outside of the team of lead actors, this is a brief guest appearance for Amitabh.  His attire tells us that he is a funky Romany gypsy, introducing the convolutions of love through the title song of the film.  This song plays as the initial credits are rolling on the screen.  (Note: there is also a video version that is free of the rolling credits).  He is sporting what is called a multi neck guitar, that allows the performer to switch the tones and sounds quickly.  I picked this song as it turns out to be something of an item number.

As I started to play this song, and watched it for the first time, my mind immediately went back to the earlier years of his career, and his first such hip-hop type song came to my mind.  The year -1972, the film – ‘Abhimaan’, and the song – “Meet Na Milaa Re Mann Ka”.  So after seeing this song, I switched to that song on YouTube. And telling the truth, a smile came to my lips.  Suggest you also try this tandem view, and see the comparison.  Quite an interesting transformation.  🙂

The film is produced by Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra for their home production banner Yash Raj Films.  The main cast of actors includes Abhishek Bachchan, Bobby Deol, Preity Zinta, Lara Dutta, Piyush Mishra, Hafeez, Amit Chana, Meera Syal, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Sagar Arya, and of course Amitabh Bachchan in a cameo appearance.  The lyrics of this song are by Gulzar, and the music is by trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.  The singing voice is that of Shankar Mahadevan.  As per the descriptions available, this shooting of this item song took place in the Waterloo station of the London Tube.  You may be familiar that the London Tube is the original underground commuter train service, the first one in the world, that was initially commissioned in 1863.

I have a problem with these new age item songs that include a large number of dancers, multiple cameras panning here and there all over the place, and all the new jing bang style for creating music videos.  It is the editing.  A careful observer will notice continuity gaps, repeated shots, out of sync lip-syncing etc.  For me such errors are distractions that take away the delight of the song, and then my preference is to hear it and not see it.  In any case, the dancing group is ineffectual.  Except for creating a noisy crowd, it does not seem to add anything to the song.  In most cases, the group dance coordination etc. is an eyesore.  Anyway, that is my personal opinion.

So one more ‘later years’ song for this amazing performer.  Grand love affair he is having with his fans across generations – the grandest to date in the industry.  Enjoy.

Song – Ho Aa Ja Aa Ja Rabba Ishqe Di Khol Guthiaan (Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom) (2007) Singer – Shankar Mahadevan, Lyrics – Gulzar, MD – Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy

Thank u sudhirji for this song. It is a fav with ur Friend Peevesie. It is there 3-4 tyms in d movie. Actually she had also choreographed a version of it for a school program.
There is a portion of the song with the closing credits of the movie which tries to show some logic abt the movie (there was little logic in it😉)

Since u r seeing movies on recommendation, think u shd c PAA, BLACK & BHOOTHNATH. These I ve seen multiple tyms

Ah yes, thanks for the reminder. I am sure Peevesie is busy, and hope that she is doing well. Awaiting the next episode of Himalayan Diaries.

Also, thanks for the reference; yes, I have watched all the three films you have listed. For me, ‘Black’ is an unforgettable film, a near perfect experience, that is now in my list of top ten favorites, and the only film from after the 1970s.
