Hullo Atuldom

i am just unable too stay away from the blog.

7th March is the 65th birthday of a highly versatile actor who goes by the name Anupam Kher. His journey in Bollywood began with a movie, where as a 28-year-old, he portrayed the character of a 65 year old senior whose son dies in the US and the senior has to struggle his way through corrupt excise officers to get the mortal remains of his son released from cargo. Anupam was excellent in that role and he won all awards possible in that year. But what followed this success was- he was stuck portraying characters much older than his calendar age- Madhuri Dixit’s father in Tezaab, Anil Kapoor (who is a year younger to Anupam) had Anupam playing his grandfather in Vijay (1988). As if playing Anil Kapoor’s grandfather was not enough his character was father to Hema Malini and Raj Babbar, father in law to Rajesh Khanna and Moushmi; and finally even Rishi Kapoor’s grandfather. The only other actor (in my knowledge) who has played older character with elan is Sanjeev Kumar.

He is a two-time winner of the special jury award at the National Film Awards, eight-time Filmfare Award winner of which five-times were as Best Comedian. He is also a Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan winner.

It is difficult to pin-point which is my favourite Anupam Kher character from all of his (close to) 500 movies. But his role of an alcoholic singer, trying to cope with the demons in his mind and his relationship with his daughter, in the 1989 Mahesh Bhatt directed “Daddy”, is what i would like to present a song from, today on his 65th birthday. The movie was released on Doordarshan and i don’t think it had a theatrical release.(That was the time when many low-budget films were being premiered on television.) It had Pooja Bhatt making her debut with Soni Razdan, Neena Gupta, Sulbha Arya, Suhas Joshi, Raj Zutshi, Manohar Singh, Satish Kaushik, Akash Khurana as others in the cast. “Daddy” was said to be director Mahesh Bhatt’s window to his own life. This is one of the movies where Anupam Kher was the protagonist, another movie that I recall was also a film that released on television “Zevar”, which was produced and directed by Basu Chatterjee where Anupam Kher got to play a character of his (then calendar) age.

Today’s song is written by Suraj Sanim and Rajesh Roshan is the music director. Talat Aziz is the playback singer.



Song-Aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange (Daddy)(1989) Singer-Talaz Aziz, Lyrics-Suraj Sanim, MD-Rajesh Roshan


aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange
aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange
aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange
mere apne mere hone ki nishaani maange
aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange

main bhatkta hi raha dard ke veeraane mein
waqt likhta raha chehre pe har pal ka hisaab
meri shohrat meri deewangi ki nazar huyi
pi gayi mai ki botal mere geeton ke kitaab
aaj lauta hoon toh hansne ki ada bhool gaya aa
yeh shehar bhoola mujhe
main bhi isey bhool gaya
mere apne mere hone ki nishaani maangen
aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange

mera phan phir mujhe baazaar mein le aaya hai
yeh woh jaa hai ke jahaan mehr o wafaa bikte hain
baap bikte hai aur lafze jigar bikte hai
kokh bikti hai dil bikte hain sar bikte hain
iss badalti huyi duniya ka khuda koi nahin
saste daamon mein har roz khuda bikte hain
bikte hain
bikte hain
mere apne mere hone ke nishaani maangen
aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange

har khareedaar ko baazar mein bikta paaya
hum kya paayenge kisine yahaan kya paaya
mere ehsaas mere phool kahin aur chalen
bol pooja meri bachchi kahin aur chalen
aur chalen
aur chalen

Nice post Peevesie’s Mom ji !!!
Thanks for the post and this song.
Our Best Wishes and Greetings to Anupam Kher on his birthday today …!!! May God bless him with good health and peace and many more movies of him for us in future.
I like this song very much since it is sung by my favourite singer Talat Aziz. I have not watched this movie, so can’t say much about it.
Thanks and regards,


I watched it again yesterday after many years.


Nice post Nalini Ji.
Never realised Anupam JI acted in about 500 movies. I liked his many characters, except his comedy roles, which were mostly over the top
