Hullo to all in Atuldom

“Maan Gaye Ustaad”(1981) was a Shibu Mitra directed movie.

Chandan Singh (Pran) is a farmer who lives in a village called Ramgarh along with his wife, Malti (Sonia Sahni), and two children, Munna and Munni. One day Malti gets molested by three city goons, Jaikishan (Ajit), Rajan, and Banoo (Rajan Haksar). Chandan intervenes, but is attacked, and Malti is shot dead. The children get separated, while Munna is adopted by a Muslim male named Abba (Om Prakash) and is re-named Shera, Munni is adopted by a Hindu family and re-named Geeta.

Years later the three estranged family members are fated to meet again – this time Geeta is a con-woman, who has a con-man boyfriend, Kishan (Shashi Kapoor), who is on the lookout for the man who killed his photographer brother (Chandrasekhar), and believes that Chandan is the killer; while Chandan, who is now known as Chandan Dada, a hoodlum, has been arrested for killing a man named Rajan; while Shera, a hit-man and hoodlum himself, has feigned his arrest, after accepting a contract from none other than Jaikishan – to kill Chandan!!

The movie then goes through the normal way of first bringing the family together with the help of the song that the father had taught his children before calamity struck the family and they got separated.

The movie was almost like a show case for Pran. He had a song filmed on him and that song appeared three times in the movie. He got to take revenge from the villains, had a beautiful wife in Sonia Sahni, and he also got a qawwali which was a competition between him and Amjad Khan.

But this is not the only movie where he had songs to emote too. We have loved him with Ashok Kumar in so many songs, and I am sure everyone will agree that the most entertaining one was in “Victoria No. 203” – “do bechare bina sahaare dekho pooch pooch kar hare”.

But one cannot forget him with Kishore Kumar either- “Aake seedhi dil pe katariya oh sawariya” (Half Ticket) or Amitabh Bachchan – “Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi”.

And we should not forget that Pran’s innings as a “good” character artist began with his “malang chacha” mouthing “kasme vaade pyaar wafa sab baatein hai” “in Upkaar”.

He began his filmi career in pre-independence era with Yamla Jat, Khajanchi, Chaudhary etc in Lahore in Punjabi. His Hindi film run began with “Khandaan” (1942. Here I feel like mentioning the other “Khandan” (1965) where he played a villain to make the life of the hero Sunil Dutt miserable.

His career in Bombay (Mumbai of today) started with “Ziddi” which was also a break for DevAnand and by 1950 Pran was a premier villain in Bollywood. He was the most sought-after villain opposite Dilip- Raj- Dev through the 50s and 60s. We have seen him being mean to every other hero of that period Dharmendra, Rajendra Kumar, Manoj Kumar, and any other hero we can think of (I am not going into the Roster of the heroes of the sixties here).

During this period, he had a brief role in Manoj Kumar’s “Shaheed” which was not a negative character.

But post “Upkaar” he had a second image change and we could see him as a good grandfather “Parichay”, friend “Zanjeer” “Guddi” “Beimaan” etc alongwith being the badman.

He had a style all his own be it in getting into various getups that went with the character he played or the blowing of smoke rings and holding the cigar or cigarette in a different way I each movie. There are many present-day character actors- Gulshan Grover for example- who swear on Pransaab being their role model much the same way as heroes copy Dilip- Raj- Dev. 🙂

He would have been celebrating his 98th birthday today (12 February 2018). I just could not get this date go by without we posting a song filmed on Pransaab. For today’s song Mohd. Rafi has given his voice alongwith Dilraj Kaur and Chandrani Mukherjee. This song appears about three times in the movie- once in happy times when Chandan Singh is the family man and farmer, once when he is so “good” a prisoner that the jailor Ashok Kumar trusts him to let him play around the jail with his grandson. And finally, at the climax of the movie when his (now grownup) children are tied up by the villain (I am unable to locate that video).

Today also happens to be the birthday of a person who became a friend thanks to this blog. We know him as Avinash Scrapwala. Here I would also like to wish him all the very best in life. Best wishes are also due to another Atulwaasi- Nitin Shah and his wife celebrate their Wedding Anniversary today. Here is wishing them long years of togetherness.

mera ek sawaal hai
sawaal ka jawaab do
mera ek sawaal hai
sawaal ka jawaab do
ye main tumpe chhodta hoon
achha do kharaab do
mera ek sawaal hai
sawaal ka jawaab do

poochho
dushman hon jab chaaron taraf
hon haath tumhaare khaali
dushman hon jab chaaron taraf
hon haath tumhaare khaali
bolo bachchon kaise karoge
tum apni rakhwaali
ye phaulaadi haath hamaare dushman se takraayen
ye phaulaadi haath hamaare dushman se takraayen
kat jaayen sar chaahe lekin
sar ko nahin jhukaayen
har mushkil mein har keemat pe
rahenge hum aazaad
sau baaton ki ek baat hai
iss ko rakhna yaad

maan gaye ustaad tumko
maan gaye ustaad
mera ek sawaal hai
sawaal ka jawaab do
ye main tumpe chhodta hoon
achcha do kharaab do
mera ek sawaal hai
sawaal ka jawaab do

poochho
hoke badi tu beti aisa
kaun sa kaam karegi
hoke badi tu beti aisa
kaun sa kaam karegi
kya tu iss duniya mein raushan
baap ka naam karegi
fakr kare har aurat jiss pe aisi doon qurbaani
fakr kare har aurat jiss pe
aisi doon qurbaani
banke dikha doongi duniya ko
main jhaansi ki raani
toot padoongi gaddaaron pe
ban ke main faulaad
sau baaton ki ek baat hai
is ko rakhna yaad

maan gaye ustaad bitiya
maan gaye ustaad
mera ek sawaal hai
sawaal ka jawaab do
ye main tumpe chhodta hoon
achcha do kharaab do
mera ek sawaal hai
sawaal ka jawaab do

leadar netaa banoge ya tum
desh ke pehredaar
leadar netaa banoge ya tum
desh ke pehredaar
bhaarat maa se bolo beta
kaise karoge pyaar
leadar neta kya ban’na hai
banoonga khidmatgaar
leadar neta kya ban’na hai
banoonga khidmatgaar
paida karoonga sabke dil mein
apne desh ka pyaar

rahe shaanti
na ho kahin pe danga aur fasaad
sau baaton ki ek baat hai
isko rakhna yaad

o maan gaye ustaad tumko
maan gaye ustaad
