Hullo to all in Atuldom

Todays’ song has Anand Bakshi and Anand Milind get together to give the movie goers Anand (joy!). it is from a movie which was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for GP Sippy’s production – ‘Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kaate’ (1998). The movie stars Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Amrish Puri, Anupam Kher, Reema Lagoo and Sajid Khan.

The screenplay for thid movie is written by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Sachin Bhowmick, based on a story by Bimal Kar. It has a lot of inspiration from many of Hrishida’s earlier successful movies. Remember “shifting pain” in ‘Anand’ (1970) – well the character of Shankar’s (Anil Kapoor) bhabhi has “shifting pain” in her knee. Remember “mooche mundawana” in ‘Golmaal’ (1979)? Here Shankar has to cut his hair “baal mundwana”. Remember the strict Jija ji who used to judge a person “soongh ke”; here we have a father (Amrish Puri) who has similar powers.  Then we had David in ‘Chupke Chupke’ (1975) who was in tandem with the pranksters; here we had a mamma (Anupam Kher). And also, there is a passing reference to the joke about identical twins (Golmaal) and Amrish Puri (who is called Bhayankar behind his back) goes- “Steve Waugh, Mark Waugh Wah Wah!!” I know all this about the movie as I have seen it a few times on TV of course. And I thoroughly enjoyed it.  There are many songs in the movie which are good.

There was a song in Hrishida’s “Naram Garam’ (1981) which had a girl ask her chacha (Shatrughan Sinha) to get ready for a wedding. Today’s song has a bhaanji (Juhi Chawla) asking her mamma why he was still a bachelor.  The song is sung by Vinod Rathod and Alka Yagnik. This song is similar in thought with what I had presented a few days back- a bachelor loving his bachelorhood. 🙂

Any idea why this song and movie today? Well it was the last movie to be directed by the Hrishikesh Mukherjee. He returned to direction of films after a gap of 10 years.

Starting his life as teacher of mathematics and science before venturing into filmdom as a cameraman and then an assistant film editor in the late 40s, in Calcutta (now Kolkata) he went on to work with Bimal Roy as film editor and assistant director in movie like ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ and ‘Devdas’. He debuted as director with ‘Musafir’ in 1957 and followed it up with movies that are a class in themselves – ‘Anari’, ‘Anuradha’, ‘Chhaya’, ‘Asli Naqli’, and the list goes on to include a few movies that gave Dharmendra his first comedy – ‘Chupke Chupke’; Amitabh his big break in ‘Anand’; introduced Jaya Bhaduri to Bollywood – ‘Guddi’. I am not a critique of his work, I am a fan. I might have seen all the movies he made in the late 70s through to the 80s. so when ‘Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kaate’ released I saw that too but not in the cinema hall as the movie had a poor audience reception. But the songs of the movie keep replaying in my head.

Here is one to remember Hrishida on his birth anniversary.


Song – I Love You, Bhaanji Thank You (Jhooth Boley Kauwa Kaate) (1998) Singer – Alka Yagnik, Vinod Rathod, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Anand Milind

bhaanji main aage nikal gaya

pandrah bees baras wapas peeche tu mud ja
ho mama seeti baja

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir Kapur)

पीहू पीहू बोले पपीहा
कोयल बे कुहु कुहु

[पक्षी के स्वर]

पीहू पीहू बोले पपीहा
कोयल बे कुहु कुहु
मामा आई लव यू
भांजी थैंक यू
भांजी आई लव यू
मामा थैंक यू

मामा कर लो शादी
ले आओ मेरी मामी
मुझे किसी लड़की की
करनी नहीं गुलामी
मैं भी तो लड़की हूँ
मत करो मेरी बदनामी
लड़की नहीं तू मेरी भांजी
मेरी जान हैं तू॰॰ऊ
मामा आई लव यू
भांजी थैंक यू
भांजी आई लव यू
मामा थैंक यू

बोलो मामा सा रे गा मा
मैं क्यों बोलूँ सा रे गा मा
टोपी कुर्ता और पाजामा
मामी के बिन क्या है मामा
मामी के बिन क्या है मामा
चुप कर मत कर मेरी भांजी
बीच सड़क तू हँगामा
हट छेड़ ना मुझको तू॰॰ऊ

मामा सबकी जोड़ियाँ
तू कैसे अकेला रह गया
भांजी मैं आगे निकाल गया
पीछे वो मेला रह गया
पंद्रह बीस बरस वापस पीछे तू मुड़ जा
हो मामा सीटी बजा
मेरी मामी को बुला
हो सीटी बजाना तुझे सिखाया किसने ये बतला
हो भांजी सीटी बजा
मुझे उस लड़के से मिला
कोई काम का लड़का है या
है शहरी बाबू
हे मामा आई लव यू
भांजी थैंक यू
भांजी आई लव यू
मामा थैंक यू
मामा आई लव यू
भांजी थैंक यू
भांजी आई लव यू
मामा थैंक यू
