Hullo Atuldom

It has been a year and half since the world is fighting a Pandemic. This post by Avinashji set me thinking. He has listed disasters that have been hitting the world and how this pandemic is different from other disasters.
And we have lost many great artists and common people to this pandemic. Every person I know has someone whom they know testing positive of the virus. There have been cases where people have lost a loved one, a friend, an acquaintance etc. to the severity of the disease. Even I have lost a well-respected and loved aunt. We are sad or shocked when we hear of such deaths. And these are unexpected exits of people effected by the virus.

But what about those who died due to a long suffering ailment. Just when we get a news of the person being on the road to recovery we get follow ups about the person having been rushed to the hospital and that his condition is deteriorating. This is what happened with actor Irrfan Khan.

It was disclosed in March 2018 that he had been diagnosed with the dreaded ‘C’ and he went to the UK for treatment. He returned in 2019 and everything seemed to have settled to normalcy. We saw him complete “Angrezi Medium” (2020) which was apparently a sequel to his 2017 release “Hindi Medium”.

It is already an year since we lost a very good actor. Unbelievable. Isn’t it?

He was a good actor who made his debut in the entertainment world about the same time as Shahrukh, Salman and Aamir Khan. He too, started with a role in the doordarshan serials “Shrikant”, “Bharat Ek Khoj”, “Chanakya etc. At the same time he was seen in ‘almost’ bit roles in movies like “Salaam Bombay”, “Kamla Ki Maut”, “Ek doctor ki maut” etc. He was seen in some negative roles too. After about 10 years of working in parallel cinema he was offered the roles alongside Raveena Tandon, Shabana Azmi, Lisa ray, and other actors of commercial value, though most of these would be of a supporting actor or what is called character artist. He has also worked in a few English movies and dubbed or provided voice-over for ‘Baloo, the bear’ in the Hindi version of the “Jungle Book”. He was an accomplished actor whose commercial worth was never exploited to its fullest and now it is not possible.

In the wake of his passing away, many videos popped up, on various social media platforms, where we see him taking centre stage with Shahrukh Khan at a Filmfare Awards Nite. I am sure those are scripted acts and we see him putting on SRK style acts. we see him saying that given a chance even he would like to woo girls and have them fall in love with him.

He did have a few movies that can be called commercial as they had insane stories that essentially entertain the audience and help forget their troubles in the darkness of a cinema hall for the duration of the movie. Movies like “Thank You” (2011), “D-Day” (2013), “Piku” (2015), “7 Khoon Maaf” (2011), “Right Yaa Wrong” (2010), “Billu” (2009) etc. He may not have been the main lead in these but he had roles of substance and he was well appreciated.

In the run up to this post I went through a whole lot of movies where Irrfan was featured and looked for songs where he has lip synced. I must say that there are a few melodious songs filmed on him but only one or two where he actually gets to mouth the words of the song. I have settled for a song that may not be a connoisseurs’ delight but has Irrfan even shaking a leg. It is from the hardly-known movie “Dil Kabaddi” (2008) which had a cast of Soha Ali Khan, Konkona Sen, Payal Rohatgi, Rahul Khanna, Rahul Bose and Irrfan Khan.

I heard the song for the first time as I wrote the post. I must say that the lyricist must be a common man like most of us and not from the family of Ghalib or even Majrooh Sultanpuri, Anand Bakshi or Gulzar. He has used common place words and I am surprised that it didn’t register in the minds of the young brigade of movie lovers. Possibly because the movie didn’t have big names and it got lost in the crowd of popular releases of that year which had better publicity machinery in place.

The movie dealt with the lives of two modern day married couples caught in a web of boredom, loss of love and temptation. I vaguely recall catching the movie on some channel, ages back. It had Rahul Bose and Konkona as one couple and Irrfan and Soha Ali as the other. Payal Rohatgi was the “TEMPTATION”. It seems the movie was inspired by a Woody Allen movie. Sachin Gupta and Dhruv Dhalla were the music directors and Virag Mishra was the lyricist. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan played himself in the movie and sang a song written by himself. Of the playback singers listed for the movie I can only recognize Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Monali Thakur and Mika Singh. Today’s song is in the vocals of Poroma Bannerji, Monali Thakur and Jaspreet Singh.

(I know we have knowledgeable Atulites who will have information about all the new names of singers, music directors and lyricist in my post)
Thinking of an actor who went too soon.


Song-Meri fantasy come and see (Dil Kabaddi)(2008) Singers-Poroma Bannerjee, Monali Thakur, Jaspreet Singh, Lyrics-Virag Mishra, MD-Sachin Gupta- Dhruv Dhalla

Lyrics

good good good good
good good good good
good good good good
good good good night night night
good good good good
good good good good

meri fantasy come and see, meri fantasy
good good good night
meri fantasy come and see, meri fantasy
good good good night
meri fantasy come and see meri fantasy
good good good good
meri fantasy come and see meri fantasy
good good good goodnight
agar main pizza delivery boy hota
toh bees minute mein
hot hot tere saath hota
darwaaja tum kholti
hans ke meri bell pe
have one get one more free
offer hote tarah tarah ke
meri fantasy come and see, meri fantasy
good night
meri fantasy come and see, meri fantasy

kinni soni lag di ni kudiye
tainu vekh vekh assi ji gayi le
kinni soni lag di ni kudiye
tainu haay

samajh lo ik nurse hoon main
tumhaari nabj dekh loon main
samajh lo ik nurse hoon main
tumhaari nabj dekh loon main
tumhaari saans tham chuki hai
aa teri saansein le lu main
chadha du main ek tumhaare gulcose
saja du main bed pe red rose
good good good good
good good good goodnight
good good good good
good good good

@Peevesie’s Mom ji – Thanks for this post remembering Irfan Khan. One of the most talented actors of Bollywood who left us very early.
(He was an accomplished actor whose commercial worth was never exploited to its fullest and now it is not possible.- I totally agree with you)

Thanks for introducing the today’s song too.
I was not aware of this song and for that matter any song of this movie.
Regards,

I am sure even the film industry would have forgotten this movie. Like I said in the post, it must have got lost amid more popular movies
