Hullo Atuldom

Deepika Padukone, daughter of champion badminton player Prakash Padukone, herself a national level player, entered the glamour world of films through the modelling route. She is one of the highest paid actresses currently and winner of three filmfare awards for acting. 2006 was her debut year in Kannada films and 2007 saw her debut in Hindi films through Farah Khan’s ‘Om Shanti Om.’ Since then she has had a mixed bag of fortune as far as successful movies are concerned, but she hasn’t shied away from experimenting with the characters she plays on-screen. Her roles in ‘Piku’, ‘Bajirao Mastaani’, ‘Padmaavat’, ‘Finding Fanny’ etc are all diametrically different from each other and that doesn’t mean that she hasn’t done roles of young, modern damsels as in ‘Happy New Year’, ‘Chennai Express’, ‘Cocktail’, ‘Aarakshan’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ etc.

2015 saw her star opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Imtiaz Ali directed “Tamasha”. She played the role of a businessperson who helps Ranbir Kapoor’s character overcome his complexes. The movie was a drama based on a non-linear screenplay. A type of story telling which I have seen in a few movies in recent times. The story was loosely based on a French novel ‘The Little Prince’. It may have been a moderate success but the work of the lead pair was well received. It had music by A. R. Rehman and lyrics were by Irshad Kamil.

Irshad Kamil has been around writing songs for some successful movies for the last 15-16 years. He was born in Punjab and is a graduate of journalism and a post graduate and PhD in Hindi.

A. R. Rehman, born in Chennai as A.S. Dileep Kumar, in 1967 converted to Islam when he was in his 20s. His journey in the music world began when he scored music for jingles and documetaries for Television in the late 80s when he was still Dileep. His most enduring and easily re-callable jingle being for Titan Watches. His first independent score was for Mani Ratnam’s ‘Roja’ in 1991. Prior to that he was playing in the orchestra of famous South Indian music composers.

With today’s song we are wishing the maestro, that A. R. Rehman has turned out to be, on his 54th birthday. May he keep giving us lovely, loving, hummable songs. Let us also wish Deepika on her birthday which was yesterday (5th January) with health and happiness.

The song with this post is something that I have been hearing and seeing from the time it released in 2015. What struck me was the choreography and the spirited performance of Ranbir and Deepika. There is a portion of the song where he tries to ape Dev Anand in terms of steps, costume, cap etc. This is a song which is a good showcase for Deepika’s beauty and Rehman’s music. The playback is by Mohit Chauhan. As I was writing this I realized that there is one other movie with the same title starring Dev Anand, Meena Kumari, Ashok Kumar etc. and that is already present on the blog waiting to be yyiippeed.



Song-Matargashti (Tamaasha)(2015) Singer-Mohit Chauhan, Lyrics-Irshad Kamil, MD-A R Rahman




matargashti khuli sadak mein
takdi tadak bhadak mein
ole gire sulagte se sulagte se
sadak mein chhatri na thhi bagal mein
aaya hi na akal mein
ke bhaagen ham
ya bheegen ham akad mein
to socha phir geela hua hai jo sukhaana ho ho ho
chaahe janaana ya mardaana
ho ho ho ho ho

phenka naya paasa phir de gayi jhaansa
aenwain mujhe phaansa teri aisi ki ho taisi zindagi
phenka naya paasa phir de gayi jhaansa
aenwe mujhe phaansa
chirkut zindagi you know


tingning ting tenw

tu hi hai wo
khela tha mein kho kho
khela tha kho kho
tu hai
laila shirin
sohni juliet
sun lo
dhoondha na jungle mele mein
main hoon
ha ha ha ha ha ha
na tera na mera zamaana ho ho ho
na ye janaana na mardaana
ho ho ho ho
pakad paana
phenka naya paasa phir de gayi jhaansa
aenwain mujhe phaansa phir de gayi jhaansa
aenwain mujhe phaansa
chirkut zindagi you ow


tu hi hai wo
khechi meri dhoti
dhoti khechi
o tu
dhoondhe kahan bande
na main kaba kashi
main twitter pe hoon
dp meri
hu hu hu hu hu

sun re sun beliya
dil ne dhokha diya
aankhen milin tumse naajneen
mere hosho hawaas kho gaye
ho dil ro roka
ye aankhen hain dil ki jubaan
khwaab roz roz dekhe naye
ho o
dil ka bhanwar bole sun saathiya
chhup na dupatte mein tu o chhaliya
prem pujaari ke
dil ka bayaan hota raha
rota raha priye
to phir deng deng deng deng deng
tang tang dang dang
tand dang dang dang
dang dang dang
chhuk chhuk too too
tenw ting tanw
ting ting ting tenw tain
ding deng deng tenw
dung dung teng
dang dang dang dang
tang tang tang tang
dang dang dang dang
dung dung dung
chhup chhup tu tu

Nice Post Peevesie’s Mom ji. Yesterday this song played on ‘Vividh Bharti’ (morning pogram – Bharat Ki Goonj) among other songs of Deepika Padukone.
I like this song very much and particularly the music of A.R.Rahman and singing of Mohit Chauhan. No doubt Ranbeer and Deepika also shine in their performances (Ranbir’s Dev act 🙂 is very much enjoyable).
Thanks for the post,

Place du Donjon, Bastia, Haute-Corse, France

Fits in ‘anokhe bol’ category.
