Hullo Atuldom

21st December happens to be the birthday of an entertainer who is the son of yesteryear (meaning the ’40s and ’50s) actor-producer Arun Kumar Ahuja and singer-actress Nirmala Devi. He is part of a family of 5 children -3 sisters and 2 brothers. All the children of Arun Ahuja are connected to the entertainment industry either directly or because of their children. The oldest daughter- Pushpa’s son Vinay Anand is an actor; second daughter- Padma’s son Krushna Abhishek and Arati Singh are actors; third daughter -Kamini herself is a writer, music director, singer, anchor etc.- daughter Ragini and son Amit are actors. Next of Arun Ahuja’s children is Kirti Kumar who is a director and an occasional actor. Then comes our today’s birthday boy- Govind Ahuja who gained popularity as Govinda.

Govinda started his career as an actor doing roles that were not necessarily in the comedy genre but showcased all aspects of acting viz. action, emotion, dancing etc. I remember having read his interview in magazines at the time of his debut, about how he had circulated his VHS tape to various production house that emphasized his dancing skills. I also recall reading how he had auditioned for a character in B R Chopra’s tele-series ‘Mahabharat’ before being signed by his maternal uncle Anand Singh (who happened to be Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s assistant in movies like ‘Khoobsurat’ and also played the character of Rakesh Roshan’s doctor friend in that). But ‘Tan Badan’ released after ‘Ilzaam’ and ‘Love 86’. Neelam was his heroine in many of his movies in that period.

Then he found his comic timing when he teamed up with David Dhawan in the ’90s and we found him cast opposite Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Juhi Chawla etc. We have seen him play second lead in movies of the late ’80s where Dilip Kumar, Raj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatru, Jeetu etc. played main protagonists. And Govinda says that those were learning experiences for him.

Currently we see him sharing screen-time with the likes of Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar.

Govinda has received 12 Filmfare nominations including best actor, best performance in a comic role and even a Best Villain. Yes he has played a villain too and he was very good at it in the N. Chandra directed 2000 release ‘Shikaari’. He has won 3 filmfare and numerous other awards.

It looks like his favourite male co-actors have been Shakti Kapoor (42 films), Kadar Khan (41 films), Johnny Lever (22 films), Satish Kaushik and Paresh Rawal (14 films with each).

Today’s song is from a movie that was released in 1989 but is not remembered by many I suppose. It had music by Bappi Lahiri; Anjaan and Naqsh Lyallpuri were the lyricists. From what I read on the story appears to be the usual masala stuff of an honest cop deciding that honesty doesn’t pay and having to encounter his own brother who has grown up to be an honest cop out to nab the cop-turned-criminal.

The cast was headed by Shashi Kapoor (possibly one of his last releases), Neelam Kothari and Govinda with Amrish Puri, Bob Christo, etc were in the supporting cast.
Here is this song from this movie. It is sung by Shabbir Kumar and AnuradhaChandrani Mukherjee. Lyricist is not known.

The song is picturised on Govinda and Neelam. It is quite a hummable song to listen to, even though the song failed to get popular.

“Farz Ki Jung”(1989) makes its debut with this song.



Song-O saathiyaa ab darr kya (Farz Ki Jung)(1989) Singers-Shabbir Kumar, Chandrani Mukherjee, MD-Bappi Lahiri


o saathiyaa aake
ab darr kya aa aa
pyaar kiya aa
to pyaar kiya

o saathiyaaa aa
ab dar kya aa
pyaar kiya to pyar kiya
o saathiya aa aa
ab dar kya
pyaar kiya to pyaar kiya

dil mein aake
dil se na jaana
waada nibhaana
bhool na jaana
dil mein aake
dil se na jaana
waada nibhaana
bhool na jaana

o sathiya aa aa
ab dar kya aa
pyaar kiya to pyaar kiya

pyaar hai bandhan
do roohon ka
prem hai do saanson ka sangam
janam janam ka saath hai apna
mar kar bhi na honge juda hum

pyaar hai bandhan do roohon ka
prem hai do saanson ka sangam
janam janam ka saath hai apna
mar kar bhi na honge juda hum

ye rishta hai sadiyon puraana
rishta puraana
bhool na jaana
o sathiya aa aa
ab dar kya aa
pyaar kiya to pyaar kiya

dil mein aake
dil se na jaana
waada nibhaana aa
bhool na jaana

o o o o
o o o
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

roke khuda ya roke khudaayi
milne waale mil jaate hain
phool mohabbat ke to aksar
angaaron pe khil jaate hain

roke khuda ya roke khudaayi
milne waale mil jaate hain
phool mohabbat ke to aksar
angaaron pe khil jaate hain

rab roothhe ya roothe zamaana
mushqil hai ye pyaar mitaana
o saathiya aa
ab dar kya aa
pyaar kiya to pyaar kiya
pyaar kiya to pyaar kiya

Atul ji
Corrections please,
the singers of this song are Shabbir kumar & CHANDRANI MUKHERJEE
According to me myswar site mixed Anuradha Paudhwal and Chandrani Mukerjee`s name and created one new name Anuradha Mukheerjee, It is wrong, I checked the press booklelt of the movie and the cassette inlay cover of the movie, both of them mentioned the singers name of this song as Shabbir kumar and Chandrani Mukherjee
eventhought the recording compny audio link displays Chandrani Mukherjee and anuradha paudhwal`s name, I listened to the song, I did not find Anuradha paudhwal`s voice anywhere in the song link, only one female voice is there, it is the voice of Chandrani Mukherjee`s

So anuradha mukherjee does not make debut in the blog…..Please correct it

Nalini Ji, Thanks for the post showcasing versatility of successful actor Govinda, who as far as acting goes is in the genre of Kishore Kumar. ( IMHO)
I generally liked his performances but not as much that of his co stars 🙂 ( I mean Shakti Kapoor & Kader Khan)
