Hullo Atuldom

Time for a yearly roundup!!!! 2021 coming to a close. 2022 just a sunrise away. Hope we have different experiences in 2022, experiences that make us glad and bring a smile to our lips which stays the whole year.

I am sure Atulji or Sudhirji or one of the other blog-contributors, who have the patience to go through the statistics etc., will give us a table of how many new movies debuted on the blog in 2021, and other related info about which date saw how many posts etc. But the best that happened this year, IMO, is the series that Atulji undertook to enlist all the movies, music directors etc that Lata Mangeshkar was associated with in her looonnngg career.

On the way out of 2021 here is a song from the 1993 release “Shatranj”. A movie that I saw at the time of its release on cable TV, before the Satellite TV Tsunami hit us. It was produced by Arun S. Thakur, directed by Aziz Sejawal, had music by Anand Milind, and Sameer was the lyricist. S P Balasubramaniam, Abhijeet, Udit Narayan, Jolly Mukherjee, Kumar Sanu, Sudesh Bhonsle, Jayshree (popular as Bombay Jayshri in classical music circles), Poornima, Sadhana Sargam (i.e. all the good singers of the 90s) were used in the movie.

Kadar Khan was the dialogue writer of the movie which begins like “Chalti ka Naam Gaadi” (CKNG) which means we have three brothers -bachelors- who are reared by the eldest brother Dharamraj (Kadar Khan), the other two brothers being Dino and Dinky (Jackie and Mithun). The eldest brother has a problem with the female gender of the populace (like Ashok Kumar in CKNG), the other two don’t have any such issues and Renu & Radha (Divya Bharaati and Juhi Chawla) are their girl friends. Then there is a female called Rosie (Jamuna who appeared in a few films in the 80s and 90s, not much is known about her) who is shown to like the elder brother Dharamraj since childhood (Sarfaraz Khan, Kadar Khan’s own son played the younger Dharamraj). The reason for Dharamraj’s problem with females is shown as his step-mother who was nasty to him and his brothers as children.

The story has the necessary villain in the character of Prajapati (Kiran Kumar) the manager to the brothers’ father’s (Vikas Anand) business and also his killer. He is cheating the brothers’s step-mother and step-brother (Shakti Kapoor) and using their business as a front for his illegal activities (what else). The brothers have some misunderstandings with Dharamraj when Renu & Radha enter their lives, which get resolved; then the hard-feelings towards the step-family also is sorted out and the cause of all the problems in their lives (Prajapati) is brought to his logical end. And then “The End”.

Oh I forgot to mention a few more tributes that the movie paid to CKNG. CKNG had ‘Mohan Garage’ here the brothers have ‘Dharam Garage’. There was a ‘car’ in CKNG even this movie had a ‘car’ important to the story. CKNG begins with a song on the pet car, this one too begins with a song on the car. Additionally the brothers have a pet Monkey/ Chimpanzee. So let us have the movie debuting on the blog with the film-opening song that shows us the bonding between the brothers. This song is in the voices of SPB, Abhijeet and Udit Narayan.

There used to be a show called ‘Superhit Muqabla’ on Doordarshan Metro of those years (28 years back) which was on the lines of the legendary Binaca Geetmala. The show used to retire songs from the list of popular songs, which were complied based on vinyl records and cassette sales & and viewership of the show as such, after a 25 week run to make place for newer songs, very much like Binaca Geetmala. And songs of “Shatranj” (1993) were on this show for many weeks.

With this song we also say thank you to the entertainer Kadar Khan who left us today, in 2018, in Canada, where he was staying with his sons following his retirement from Bollywood. His last release was ‘Hogaya Dimaagh ka Dahi” in 2015 October (after a gap of seven years when ‘Mehbooba’ and ‘Deshdrohi’ released). He was a recipient of three Filmfare awards viz:

Best Dialogue for “Meri Awaz Suno” in 1982.

Best Comedian for “Baap Numbri Beta Dus Numbri” in 1991.

Best Dialogue (again) for “Angaar” in 1993.

He was conferred the Padma Shri, posthumously in 2019 by the Government of India.

He was 81 when he passed away.

‘Chaalu Mera Naam’ (1977) was directed by Krishna Naidu for BC Deora Films, Bombay. This B grade movie had Vinod Mehra, Mahendra Sandhu, Vidhya Sinha, Helen, Madan Puri, Anwar Hussain, Deven Verma, Nazneen, Maruti, Jagdish Raj, Prakash Thapa, Radheshyam, Ramesh Deo, Chandrashekhar Vaidya, Sajjan, Sulochana Latkar, Anand Girdhar, Gurbachan Singh etc. in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has been covered so far.

Here is the second song from ‘Chaalu Mera Naam’ (1977) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a celebration song (birthday celebration?) where Helen and Vinod Mehra (in disguise ?) perform this song and dance. Villains are in attendance in full strength , as we can notice in the picturisation.

I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us what is going on in this picturisation.

The song itself is quite wonderful to listen to. It reminds me of music of ‘Don’ (1978), composed by the same music director duo. Sadly, this movie, which predates ‘Don’ by one year could not take advantage of such a fantastic sounding song.

It is a nice song that has been forgotten with time, mainly because the movie failed at the box office.

Blog Day :

There have been two excellent reviews of 83 film which was released recently on 24 December 2021. As such there is not much to add to the review per se. But then the event itself is engraved in golden moments and letters in the annals of sporting history of our country. Well, there always was hockey in which we ruled the roost in those days. People had little doubts in their minds on the continued dominance of West Indies which had already won the first as well as the second world cup in 1975 and 79 respectively. Dark horses India created history by upsetting West Indies in the finals by successfully defending a modest score of 183 runs, a record which stands tall to this day.

Apart from songs and films, railways and cricket (of bygone era) remain amongst the favourite topics on the blog. So, when Avinash ji posted his euphoric post on having watched the film 83 first day first show, there was lot of buzz on our WhatsApp group and its was rather decided that whosoever watches the film should make attempts to write a post on the experiences of not only the film or the event but their own expectations, memories etc.

Well, I am here with my post and would request whatapp group members to ignore reading the next one-line para for obvious reasons and the cliché for which I have become rather infamous. 🙂

I was all but 9 in 1983, having born in Feb’74.

Thus, I knew about India having won the 1983-world cup only a few years later. [Sachin Tendulkar at 10 in the movie is seen dancing in the streets (on someone’s shoulders)]. As such, this post of mine could be some sort of damp squib for keen readers. To add to the misery of writing this post, I am not an avid follower of cricket or for that matter any sport. But, whenever India plays, I always follow up with keen interest. For the said reasons, I am yet to see a full IPL match and can say with enough conviction that I will never ever watch such a match. Further, I have almost completely stopped watching television and my TV table is now occupied by various indoor plants, a new hoppy which I have recently cultivated. Above the TV, creepers such as money plants and broken heart are scaling up the wall to reach the slab. 🙂

However, I have been following follow-up stories of 1983 world cup with all interests. I could completely understand what Kapil Dev’s unbeaten innings of 175 meant for the team, tournament and our country as a whole. With the advent of internet, I have visited web sites pertaining to cricket world cup several times and tried the understand the circumstances under which India went on to upset the two-time defending champions. A perfect example of dark horses turning out to be derby winners. A day after the match, London Times, a British newspaper apparently had the headline “Kapil’s men turn world upside down” on its front page.

With whatever little I have watched on cricket, Kris Srikkanth has been one of my favourite cricketers. In my opinion, he remains one of the few players who played mainly for the crowds. He successfully faced some of the most lethal fast bowlers of different teams.

I remember reading an article in India Today magazine wherein there was a beautiful article entirely dedicated to him. I had been searching for this article published in March 1987 all these years and with renewed interest, I happened to get hold of it in the magazines’ s archives articles. I would recommend readers to spare time to read the article. There have been many a great Indian cricket player over the years. But, the style, controlled aggression, antics on field etc, no one can match the peerless Kris Srikkanth.

Ball racing to the boundary like a bullet was the hallmark of his batting. For every ball that he faced it was always the viewers and not Kris Srikkanth who were afraid that the ball would end up disturbing the furniture behind. He long walks away from the crease towards square-leg umpire, frequent twisting of his nose, closing of his eyes in a flutter, the cursory glance at the skies as if he was reporting to someone after each ball, the meticulous and fast curling of the bat, his legs positioned wide apart on the crease while batting etc. will remain etched in active memories of avid lovers of the game.

Coming back to 1983, but remaining with Kris Srikkanth and his batting style, I am always happy of the fact that with a regal 38 he was the highest scorer of the finals in spite of a few towering batsmen on the opposite camp. Viv Richards scored 33 and that was the second highest individual score in the final.

With all such fond memories, the viewing of the film was for me like travelling back in a time machine. My wife along with my daughter studying II PU are now placed at D.K. Friday 24, the release date of the film, they ended up at U.K. on an unexpected, unplanned and a totally unscheduled visit. My wife has played this pleasant prank on me a couple of times and so even though it was quite surprising, it took just a nano second for me to realise that, yes, they were here for a visit.

On Saturday, 25 Dec, my daughter started this slow and silent campaign that we ought to watch a movie in the only (non-ac) theatre in this town. I do not even bother to follow up which movie plays as I do not go to theatres often. But in this case and to my inner delight it was 83 of all the films that was being screened on that day. And seeing that my daughter was killing time brooding and surfing net for tickets, story etc. I decided that the movie had to be watched anyhow. And so, I saw the film along with my daughter.

Watching films in movie theatres with my wife needs a special mention here. I was placed in Mumbai when I got married in 2003. (Yes, in 3 years, I will be slaying the seven-year itch for the third consecutive time)  🙂

Instead of watching some junk Hindi or Hollywood movie, I thought I would begin my married-life-film-watching-experiences-with-spouse by watching a scientific documentary in the newly opened world’s largest IMAX dome theatre at Bhakti Park, Wadala. My Monorail site was hardly half a km away from the theatre though my residence was far away.

I later realised that my excitement of watching a documentary in a dome theatre was wholly a one-way traffic. Having a keen interest in astronomy, I got rivetted to the documentary show on stars, planets and galaxies. Being a dome theatre, the seats were obviously push back as well as quite reclining on which my wife comfortably dozed off for the entire show. On completion of the show of which I was totally absorbed in, I asked my wife if she had enjoyed the show. She had a brutal reply that she had dozed off from the word go. I realised that we both were travelling in the vastness of space while the documentary was being screened. The only difference was that I had my eyes wide open.  🙂

Thus, being the experience (there were a few more), my wife decided to stay put at home for some house-hold chores and I accompanied my daughter for the 83 show.
The description of the movie has been amply presented in the two posts posted and will be elaborated more when others write in. And so, I will have limited non-chronological bullet-wise observations on the film.

• The film aptly starts with the now legendary catch taken by Kapil Dev dismissing a batsman who could have easily denied India the Cup. Viv Richards. As the ball tends to safely fall into the hands of Kapil Dev, the titles begin, and the movie starts.

• Ranveer Singh has gotten into the skin of the character he plays that of captain Kapil Dev himself. Many a times, his dialogue delivery is simply impeccable. Hats off to him for his efforts in portraying the role with such similarity.

• Kris Srikkanth remains what he has been to the team during their hey days and during the various film promos and stories told on TV earlier too, a complete entertainer.

• The film has tried to keep the aura of those days alive by displaying the runs scored, nature of batsman getting out etc. I only wish, they had more such displays and retained them for a bit longer time than shown in the movie.

• The mood of the nation, prior, during and after the tournament has been captured well.

• The unbeaten knock of 175 by Kapil Dev against Zimbabwe in a do or die match as well as that of the tournament should have been covered in more detail especially since the actual recording and telecast never happened.

• The rotating of the antenna by Indian public with TV sets for better reception brought back fond memories.  🙂

• The premonition of players and other officials remaining still in their positions in the pavilion when the batsman was in good flow is to be seen to be believed and appreciated.

• Kapil Dev pep talk in the dressing room should have been more elaborate and frequent even if they were in Hindi. It has been shown as if he hardly spoke which I feel could not have been the case.

• Kapil Dev’s encouragement talk to his players during the innings break that West Indies team have to still make the “paltry” 183 runs and we will not allow them to achieve it easily is quite emotional and superb.

• PR Man Singh, the Indian manager who accompanied the team to the tournament has been played quite well by Pankaj Tripathi of Mirzapur TV series fame. Given the time space he occupies in the film, Pankaj Tripathi had done full justice to the role. I understand he went to stay with the real Man Singh for a few days in Hyderabad to prepare himself for the role. Much appreciated.

• Wamiqa Gabbi plays Madan Lal’s wife. Why am I mentioning this? I really donno.  🙂  So, (Don’t) keep guessing.

The detailed wiki page of the film has a soundtrack length of about 54 minutes. For obvious reasons, there is no playback as far as songs are concerned. For many in this blog self included the names of present lyricists, singers, composers etc. are all Greek and Latin. Our Avinash ji offered me to send lyrics of any song that I could pick up in the film. That indeed would have made my task a lot easier and I thank him for the outreach.

However, surfing the net whilst writing the post, I came across a very apt song for the occasion. On 17 August 1983 Lata Mangeshkar apparently performed live in a concert in Delhi to facilitate and also raise funds for the winning team on their spectacular victory in the Cricket World Cup tournament.

Joining her in chorus were Nitin Mukesh, Suresh Wadkar and even members of the team including the captain himself. The song for the special occasion was written by renowned lyricist Indeewar and the tune composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. It gives me immense pleasure to bring forth this special song to the readers of the blog.

I would also like to reproduce a snap taken during the Cup award ceremony with Indians occupying the entire ground at Lord’s. It amply showcased the euphoric mood of our nation on winning the world cup in 1983.

Lastly, I would like to end the post with my strong conviction that it’s never too late to honour Kapil Dev with the Bharat Ratna for what he has achieved for our country.
Jai Hind.

Concert song sung on 17 August 1983.

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –- – –

Today 29th December’2021 is the seventy-nineth birth anniversary (29 December 1942 – 18 July 2012) of Rajesh Khanna, born as Jatin Khanna.

On this occasion we pay our tributes to him and listen a song from one of his movies.

In this ninth episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna- The Phenomenon’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies in the year 1982. In the year 1982 the following six movies of Rajesh Khanna were released (including ‘Disco Dancer’* where he had a friendly appearance).

S No Movie Title Director Passed by Censor Board
01 Ashaanti Umesh Mehra 01.05.1982
02 Dharam Kaantaa Sultan Ahmed 28.07.1982
03 Disco Dancer* B. Subhash 10.12.1982
04 Jaanwar Ali Raza 20.12.1982
05 Raajput Vijay Anand 08.04.1982
06 Suraag** Dr Jagmohan Mundra 01.01.1982

(*Friendly Appearance, **Guest Appearance)

In the previous post in this series ‘Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 8’ we had discussed how Rajesh Khanna in the late seventies switched on to different roles exploring and introspecting himself and taking a new challenge for his ‘second innings’.

In the late seventies and early eighties, he has a string of successful movies viz. ‘Amardeep’ (1979), ’Thodi Si Bewafaai’ (1980), and critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose) (1980), ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980), and ‘Bandish’ (1980).

In 1981 he tasted more success with movies like ‘Dard’, ‘Dhanwan’, ‘Dil e Naadan’, ‘Qudrat’ and ‘Fifty-Fifty’.

‘Qudrat’ (1981) was a multi-starrer movie and had good success at the box-office. That saw Kaka putting more efforts to change his image and considering films in the ‘multi-starrer’ and ‘action’ genres, which he thought earlier was not his ‘cup of tea’. It can also be said that these two ‘genres’, where he was not doing films, were partly responsible for the failure of his earlier movies on the box-office.

In 1982 we had Kaka’s films like ‘Raaput’, ‘Ashaanti’, ‘Dharam Kaanta’ which were multi-starrer as well as action movies. He further continued doing such ‘multi-starrer-masaala’ films like ‘Paapi Pet Ka Sawaal Hai’, ‘Dharm Aur Qaanoon’, ‘Maqsad’, ‘Bewafaai’, ‘Awaam’, ‘Vijay’, etc. coming in the next few years.

Today’s song is from one of the above movies and that movie is ‘Ashaanti’. This song also beautifully catches the ‘spirit of team efforts’ instead of a ‘one-man-show’ and advocates ‘helping each other’ to get success.

Hullo Atuldom

‘Adhikaar’ meaning ‘Rights’ is a title that has been used four times by Bollywood. This information I gathered from the blog’s ‘List of songs- Moviewise’ tab. Of the four films titled ‘Adhikaar’ the ones released in 1938, 1954, and 1971 have already made their debut on the blog; in fact the ones released in 1954 and 1971 have been Yippeee’d too. The 1938 ‘Adhikaar’ has four out of seven songs on the blog. Today’s post sees ‘Adhikar’ (1986) make is debut on the blog. The song with this post is the one that plays as the movie’s titles play on-screen and we can see this ‘Adhikar’ is an ‘a’ short.

“Adhikar” (1986) was a movie that I recall having seen in a cinema theater. It had the standard, run-of-the-mill story, popular in that period.

A rich girl loves and marries a not so rich man. Her parents initially agree to the wedding but cracks begin to appear in the marriage when the girls’ parents start interfering in the couple’s daily life.

This is the two-line synopsis of movies like ‘Pyar Jhukta Nahi’ (1985), ‘Pyar Ke Kaabil’ (1987) etc.

The common element between ‘Pyar Jhukta Nahin’ (PJN), ‘Pyar Ke Kaabil’ (PKK) and ‘Adhikar’ is Bindu- she played the heroine’s interfering mother in all the three films. PJN had Padmini Kolhapure play a simple girl born to rich parents, and PKK had her (Padmini) play a lady working in her mother’s business venture. ‘Adhikar’ was slightly hat ke in the sense that Tina Munim played a simple girl born to an ambitious mother who wants her to be a singer and become rich & famous. So that should give a brief idea about what the movie was about.

‘Adhikar’ had Tina Munim and Rajesh Khanna play the parents to a sweet boy credited as Master Lucky on some sites (even in the titles of the film) and Baby Bulbul on others. Zarina Wahab, Bindu, Danny, Raza Murad, Murad, Sulochana, Yunus Parvez etc. form the supporting cast. Tanuja is there in a special appearance. Bappi Lahiri is the music director and Indeevar is the lyricist. Lata Mangeshkar, Chandrani Mukherjee, Anupama Deshpande, Uttara Kelkar, Kavita Krishnamoorthy and Kishore Kumar are the playback singers used in the movie. The movie is directed by Vijay Sadanah and produced by Jawaharlal Bafna and Vasant Doshi. It is the last movie that Rajesh Khanna and Tina Munim came together for and then the hit pairing came to an end.

The song with this post plays at the start, establishing Rajesh Khanna’s (Vishal’s) single parent status. The song shows Lucky developing interests in horses etc. Oh, I forgot to add that Rajesh Khanna plays a retired jockey. The sad version, in Kavitha Krishnamurthy’s voice, occurs at the end, when the child sings it to try and revive an unconscious Vishal. Vishal has had an hemorrhage after winning his last race as a jockey, and the doctor has given little hope of his survival. But Vishal survives and the film has a happy ending with the misunderstandings between the couple clearing up.

This song showcases Rajesh Khanna at his emotional best. His charming smile, that reaches his eyes and the mustachioed look, at the start of the song is what I liked about Rajesh Khanna – remember the look he sported at the start of ‘Dushman’ (1971). He was the heart throb of a whole generation of movie goers in the early 70s and he had ardent followers who were loyal to him forever – whatsay Avinash ji, Raja ji, and others!!!! We were upset when Amitabh Bachchan dislodged him but there were people, like yours truly, who loved to see ‘Anand’, ‘Namak Haraam’ as much for Kaka as for Amitabh Bachchan. I loved AB Sr. in ‘Inquilaab’ as much as Kaka in ‘Aaj Ka MLA Ram Avatar”. I am sure there were fans who didn’t know who to choose as favorite. The careers ran parallel for some time. But then all these have been written a number of times and will be written forever till the 70s generation decides who they loved more —- that means forever I suppose.

Thinking of Kaka a.k.a Rajesh Khanna on his birth anniversary. He would have gone a year closer to 80.

Blog Day :

4912 Post No. : 16730

Today, December 29, 2021 is the 6th Remembrance Day of Subir Sen, singer, actor and the music director in Hindi and Bangla films. The resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar seems to have influenced the music director, Shankar-Jaikishan to try him as a playback singer in Hindi films. Subir Sen sang just 28 songs in Hindi films in the span of around 12 years. Most of the songs he rendered became popular.

Subir Sen (24/07/1934 – 29/12/2015) was born in Assam and grew up in Guwahati where his father had a pharmacy business. He completed his matriculation from Guwahati. From the childhood, he was drawn towards music and this was the reason that made his father to shift to Kolkata after selling his pharmacy business. During his growing up days, he was highly influenced by the singing of Dhananjay Bhattacharya, Hemant Kumar and Talat Mehmood. When he started singing their songs in some programmes, the audience started appreciating his renditions. He felt that he can also sing like his favourite singers which made him to pursue the singing as a career.

Subir Sen enrolled himself in Marris College of Music (later renamed as Bhatkhande Music Institute), Lucknow. During the third year of his college, he received the first prize for singing a vilambit Khayal in raag Purvi. Later, he learnt Hindustani classical music from Acharya Chinmoy Lahiri, a vocalist in Hindustani classical music. On the advice of Acharya Chinmoy, Subir Sen learnt the Thumri singing from Usha Ranjan Mukherjee for over 2 years.

On an invitation from Guru Dutt, Subir Sen along with the music director, Sudhin Dasgupta shifted to Mumbai and became the part of the Guru Dutt’s Films for his film under production (probably for ‘Pyaasa’1957). However, though they were on the payroll of Guru Dutt Films, they never got opportunity to sing in his film. It is said that Guru Dutt sent Subir Sen to S D Burman for audition. He introduced himself as a singer who sang in the style of Hemant Kumar. S D Burman rejected him without taking his audition by asking him as to why he should use him when he can have the original voice of Hemant Kumar. (Source: Interview of Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma on S D Burman).

While Sudhin Dasgupta returned to Kolkata, Subir Sen got an opportunity to sing for the first time in Hindi films under the baton of Shankar-Jaikishan who were impressed with the resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar. The first song he sang in Hindi film was manzil wohi hai pyaar ki raahi badal gaye in ‘Kathputli’ (1957) picturised on Balraj Sahni. The song became very popular and was one of the three songs from ‘Kathputli’ (1957) to figure in the top 32 songs of Binaca Geetmala for the year 1958. In 1959-60, Subir Sen sang six songs in six films with six music directors (including one under the baton of Hemant Kumar), all of which became popular.

Subir Sen again came into the attention when his song, dil mera ek aas ka panchhi picturised on Rajendra Kumar (who was nick named as ‘Jubilee Kumar’), became even more popular than his first song, ranking 5th among the top 32 Hindi film songs of Binaca Geetmala for the year 1961.

With the kind of the early successes, Subir Sen must have dreamt of a bright future for him as a playback singer in Hindi films. But his discography in the table given below reveals that his playback singing career in Hindi films did not reach to a level to make a living out of it. In most of the films, he got the opportunity to sing only one song.

27 sedin dujone dulechhinu bone (Bangla) Anubhav (1971) Solo Rabindranath Tagore
28 koi mera ho gaya Midnight (1972) Solo Subir Sen

The initial euphoria Subir Sen created in Hindi film music due to the resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar may have becoming a stumbling block in his playback singing career. It would be a natural response from the music directors that they would rather work with Hemant Kumar who had already established himself as a playback singer than Subir Sen. Also, producers, directors, actors and the film financiers/distributors have their own preferences for playback singers among the established ones.

Ashutosh Banerjee, music director who had composed many Bangla films and non-film songs for Subir Sen was of the view that while in Mumbai, Subir Sen started listening to a lot of western music during which Jim Reeves and Nat King Cole became his favourite singers. From Jim Reeves, he picked up the tonal quality and from Nat King Cole the drama in singing. In his subsequent renditions, Subir Sen was influenced by the styles of these two American singers.

Some changes in Subir Sen’s rendition style are evident in his later songs. For instance, in ‘dheere chalo zara’ from ‘Aas Ka Panchhi’ (1961), one can feel some shades of Mukesh in the song. In ‘dekho na jaaneman’ which he sang for Shammi Kapoor in ‘Boy Friend’ (1961), his voice sounds somewhat different giving a feel of Manna Dey. I have listened to some of his Bangla non-film songs and I feel that he had adapted to a style of rendition to sound somewhat different from Hemant Kumar’s voice. For examples, ‘oy ujjwal din’ and ‘pagol hawa’ (a rehash of non-film Bangla song originally sung by Jatileshwar Mukherjee and ‘na jaane tum’ from ‘Chhoti Si Baat’, 1976).

With his playback singing career in Hindi films getting stangnated, Subir Sen returned to Kolkata sometime in early 1970s. He recorded hundreds of Bengali modern and Rabindra Sangeet numbers over three decades. He also acted along with Uttam Kumar in Bangla film, ‘Momer Alo’ (1964) and in Hindi film “Anubhav’ (1971).

Subir Sen and also Dwijen Mukherjee could not create a place for themselves in Hindi films mainly because they were born with their voice boxes almost similar to Hemant Kumar. And both of them were the contemporary of Hemant Kumar and in competition with him. Also, they came at a time when the troika of the main male playback singers – Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood and later Kishore Kumar had already well-established in Hindi film industry.

On the occasion of the 6th Remembrance Day of Subir Sen, I am presenting ‘chaand tale jhoom jhoom tirak rahi hai’ rendered by him with Suman Kalyanpur for the film ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963). The song is written by Shailendra which is set to music by Dattaram.

With this song, all the six songs of ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ have been covered in the Blog.

Today’s song is from the film Raja Harishchandra-1952.

The story of Raja Harishchandra is prominent in Hindu culture for being a Satyawadi king, who made big sacrifices to stand by his word given to a sage, though in a dream. Most people in the age group of 50 and above possibly must have read his story in their childhood. This was not only a popular story for children but even the Hindi film makers loved this story.

The very first silent feature film made in 1913 by Dadasaheb Phalke was on this story. From 1913 onwards there were 5 silent films made on this story, in the years 1913, 1917,1924, 1928 and 1929. After the Talkie films started, in the first year itself, i.e. in 1931, there were 2 films made on this story. The first was Harishchandra-1931 made in Bombay by Krishnatone film co. and the other was Satyawadi Raja Harishchandra-1931 made in Calcutta by Madan Theatres. Following is the list of films on this story….
1931- Harishchandra
1931- Satyawadi Raja Harishchandra
1932- Ayodhya ka Raja ( Hindi version of the First Marathi Talkie ” Ayodhyecha Raja”, by Prabhat Films )
1952- Raja Harishchandra
1958- Harishchandra
1963- Harishchandra-Taramati
1970- Harishchandra Taramati
1979- Raja Harishchandra

These are Hindi films. There were several films in Regional languages too. In the last 30 years or so, I am not aware of any mythological or religious films made in Hindi – though regional languages keep on making such films. Perhaps Hindi filmmakers have become too ‘ Secular’ to make religious films !

Film Raja Harishchandra-1952 was made by Trivedi productions, owned by Chimanlal Trivedi. He was a producer of a different kind. He founded many production houses, starting with the famous CIRCO Productions – which was sold to A.R.Kardar in 1942 to make his own Kardar studio. Kardar was a paid director in this company.

Chimanlal Trivedi, was one of the major filmmakers of the 30s and the 40s decade. He was more a Producer businessman than a Director. While he directed hardly 7 films, he produced close to 50 films- all having A grade actors, directors and composers !

Born on 19-3-1909 at a village near Anand in Gujarat he was from a Brahmin family. He did his schooling in Ahmedabad and technical graduation from Baroda. Being an expert in weaving, he took up a job as a weaving Master in Calcutta. Fond of writing, he started writing Dramas, which were staged in Bengal and Gujarat. He was attracted towards Cinema and tried some work in New Theatres. Knowing that the real playing field is Bombay he reached there. He wrote stories for the film Chevrolet-36 and Danger Signal-37 for Mohan pictures.

He established his own production company CIRCO (Cine Industries Recording COmpany) in 1937. By 1943, he had made 12 films. He preferred not to direct his films, but appointed directors like Mohan Sinha for Laxmi-40, Anuradha-40 and Vanmala-41, Balwant Bhatt for Suhag-40 and Madhusudan-41, A R Kardar for Swami-41 and Nai Duniya-42 and Debki Bose for Apna Ghar-42.

He had the art of getting the most popular stars for his films like, Prithviraj kapoor, Chandramohan, Durga Khote,Mazhar khan, Bibbo,Surendra, Jairaj, Sitara, Jeevan, Yaqub, Shobhana Samarth, Prem Adeeb, Vishnupant Pagnis,Leela Desai, Pahadi Sanyal, Shanta Apte and many others. Even big directors like Debki Bose,Nitin Bose, Kardar,Mohan Sinha, Sarvottam Badami, Nandlal Jaswantlal,Profull Roy, Sudhir Sen, R S Chaudhary, Phani Mujumdar, Balwant Bhatt etc. worked for him. From Prabhat he brought Shanta Apte for Rs.1000 pm, and also Chandramohan, Pagnis and Mazhar khan. His friend Chandulal Shah followed his way and brought K L Saigal from New Theatres !

C L Trivedi was an expert in gathering funds for his films. After CIRCO at Parel, he started Laxmi Productions at Andheri, in 1942. He made mera Gaon, Sharafat, Bhagya Laxmi, Kadambari, Tamanna, Inkaar, Mohabbat,Miss Devi etc. In 1951, it was Supreme Pictures, Trivedi Productions was in 1952, Kala Kendra in 1953 and with Chitra Bharati in 1954, he made 13 films upto 1961. Top Composers like Timir Baran, Ashok Ghosh, Rafiq Gaznavi, K C Dey, Saraswati Devi,Husnlal-Bhagatram and Naushad gave music to his films.

In the end, he turned to Stage and started Abhinay Bharati. He staged many dramas in Bombay and Gujarat. Chimanlal always went for big names. He had close relations with Nehru, Menon, Morarji Desai, and other National leaders. His wife Kantaben was a Leader herself. Chimanlal Trivedi died on 25-11-1973. His wife, 3 sons and a daughter settled in the USA.

It may be a coincidence, but Gujarati businessmen like Chimanlal Trivedi, Chimanlal Desai,Chimanlal Luhar, Chaturbhuj Doshi, Chimankant Desai, Chunibhai Desai and Chandulal Shah made sizable contribution to Hindi cinema in the first 20 years of the Talkie era. All names started with CH ( ? ) !

My today’s post will be my last post in this year – 2021. I have written 121 posts in this year, from January 2021 till this one. This is much faster than my 95 posts written in 2020. I had reached my Landmark post no. 1000 on 18-8-2021. Forget the number of posts I write, the sheer joy I get in writing about old films and music can not be measured.

It is a matter of Pride for us to be one of the contributors here. Thank you, ATUL ji.

Most of us who had read the story of Raja Harishchandra in our childhood may not be remembering it fully now. So, here is the story of the film Raja Harishchandra-1952….

Truth alone shall succeed in the end. For, Truth alone can keep the world stable. From times immemorial, torch-bearers of Truth have blazed the trail of human progress. Such one was Harishchandra, the King of Ayodhya. . Child Harischandra flowered into a handsome youth on the bough of royal luxury. The young heart fell for Princess Taramati of Mithila. Every full moon saw the young hunter Harischandra making his way to the forest to meet his love, Taramati.

On one such occasion, the lovers lost their track in the darkness of the heavy bursting clouds and wandered to the ashram of a blind Brahmin sage Sachchidanand, who gave them shelter for the night. Next morning came the time to take leave; but Harishchandra could not feel like leaving the ashram until he knew his future from the lips Sachchidanand, the miracle of whose astrological powers, he was fortunate to see. Sachinanand tried to dissuade Harishchandra from his thoughts but Harishchandra insisted upon knowing his future. Helpless Sachidanand had to foretell what lay in store in the future of Harishchandra. . “The married life of Harishchandra and Taramati shall be a hard one”. What a rude shock to the great lovers.

Harishchandra did his utmost to persuade Taramati away from her decision of marrying him. But how could Taramati be happy without Harishchandra? So Harishchandra and Taramati were married. The father of Harishchandra refused to believe in the words of Sachchidananad and put him behind the bars. . Destiny has its way with human beings. In spite of everything, Harishchandra could not find peace with himself. The shadows of the coming events made him restless. The words of Sachchidanad started taking shape. This development was too much for the old father of Harishchandra to bear. He broke down under its weight and died a miserable man.

This completely unnerved Harishchandra and took him to the feet of Sachchidanand seeking his advice in saving himself and his family from ruination. . Sachchidanad impressed upon him the greatness of Honesty and Karma, and asked him to practice Truth.

When Harishchandra accepted and started practicing the doctrine of Truth, Indra, the King of Gods, was greatly shocked. For, a mere human being like Harishchandra had started on his path to Godliness by practicing Truth and might one day unseat the Gods! . Sensing this great danger, Vishwamitra decided to put Harishchandra on severe trials, with a view of forcing him to commit breaches in his practice of Truth. He thought of the most ruthless snares to catch Harishchandra unawares. Next day he went to the king and asked him to donate all his kingdom, which the king had promised him in the sage’s dream. Satyavadi Harishchandra donates the kingdom, sells his wife and son to a Brahman and self to a guard of Shamshan, in order to collect Dakshina amount.

After a few days,his son dies of snake bite,but there is no money to pay tax for cremation. Taramati sells her Mangalsutra and pays to Harishchandra, the Shamshan Guard to cremate their son. Seeing all this, the Gods descend and make his son alive,return all his kingdom and give the family a place in Heaven. Thus Truth alone triumphs.

The cast of the film was Sumitra Devi, Prem Adeeb, Gope, Lalita pawar, Tiwari, Kammo and many others.Film’s 6 songs were written by Bharat vyas, Ramesh Gupta, Gulshan and qamar Jalalabadi and the music was by Husnlal-Bhagatram. 5 songs of this film were already discussed. Today’s song is the 6th and final song here, making the film an ” YIPPEE” film.

Here is wishing our readers a very Happy and prosperous New Year – 2022 !

Today 28th December’2021 is the fifty-third remembrance anniversary of music director Husnlal (born 1918 as per Wikipedia – death 28th December’1968) of the famous music duo of the golden age of Hindi Film Music – Husnlal Bhagatram.

On this occasion here is a song from the ‘1950’ movie ‘Apni Chhaaya’. This movie had ten songs – two songs were composed by Music Director Hanuman Prasad. And the rest eight songs were composed by Husnlal-Bhagatram.

‘Apni Chhaya-1950’ was directed by P.L. Santoshi for ‘Chitralaya Limited, Bombay’.

It had Sulochana Chatterjee, Balwant Singh, Radhakishan, Mumtaz Ali, Sajjan, Tiwari, Ramsingh, Dulari, Mona, Neelam, Satyarani, Jawahar Kaul, Baba Raja, Narbada Shankar, Karadkar, Niranjan, Madan Singh, Kukku and others.

The list of the ten songs this movie had is as given below (as mentioned in HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950).
All the ten songs in this movie were written by P.L. Santoshi.

* Today’s song is the song five mentioned above. Though HFGK and link titles mention this track as ‘dukhiyaa ke dukh hare hain’ , I think this needs to be corrected as ‘duniya ke dukh hare hain tumne’.

(Also, the song number three is mentioned in HFGK as ‘ae ji zindagi hai roshan’ but these words do not appear in the song ‘khushi ki ye ghadiyaan mubaarak mubaarak’. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this song please.)

Let us now listen to the today’s song and pay our tributes to music director Husnlal on his remembrance anniversary today. Today’s song is sung by Lalita Dewoolkar, and lyrics are by P.L. Santoshi.

As mentioned above music for the today’s song is composed by Husnlal-Bhagatram.

Hullo Atuldom

‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’ (release date 30th July 2004) is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by David Dhawan. It has a cast headed by Priyanka Chopra, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Amrish Puri, Kadar Khan, with Shashikala, Upasana Singh, Supriya Karnik, Satish Shah, Rajpal Yadav, etc for support. A few well-known faces make cameo appearances as themselves. The songs of the movie are written by Arun Bhairav, Jalees Sherwani (never heard these two names) and Sameer. Sajid- Wajid and Anu Malik are the music composers with Anu Malik giving music for one song and Sajid-Wajid having tuned the rest (there were 8 songs with two songs being multi-version songs).

The movie is the story of two friends Sameer and Sunny who meet in Goa after a gap of many years and only one of them recognizes the other as the ‘bachpan ka yaar‘. Actually Sunny seeks out Sameer with the help of Sameer’s grandmother (Shashikala) and tracks him down in Goa. Sunny gets Sameer to believe that he is after the girl, Rani Singh whom he is trying to woo. That makes it two hurdles for Sameer to overcome in his love-life; the other being Rani’s father (Amrish Puri). The movie has some fun moments between Sameer and Rani’s parents as also the landlord (Kadar Khan) of Sameer and Sunny. After a lot of madcap happenings Sameer comes to know that Sunny is actually Arun Khanna- his bachpan ka yaar – and that his aim in seeking out Sameer was just to reunite with him.

On the way to ‘THE END’ there is a chase through a crowded stadium (filmed at Bangalore’s stadium) after Sameer is taunted by Sunny about Sameer’s anger-management issues. Sameer snatches the microphone from the Chief Guest at the cricketing event, a friendly match between India and Pakistan, much to the amusement of the commentators and the players. He makes a public apology to Rani and her parents and proposes to her in front of the spectators.

This movie has Salman Khan playing Sameer, Akhsay Kumar playing Sunny alias Arun Khanna and Priyanka Chopra playing Rani Singh. Rajpal Yadav plays a madcap astrologer who keeps giving Sameer directions on how to woo Rani which always flop.

There have been a few posts on the blog, since 24th when the movie based on the 1983 world cup had its theatrical release. That movie is on my wish-list, but all those posts and references to cricketers making appearances, as themselves, on the silver screen, reminded me of this movie. Of course we have had Sunil Gavaskar and Sandeep Patil playing romantic characters on-screen and Syed Kirmani playing a negative character too, but we are looking at films that have cricketers playing themselves.

‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’ has Navjot Singh Sidhu play a commentator (he had turned a commentator mouthing Sidhuisms by then) and Sajid Khan (the comedian and film maker) sharing the commentary box. Then we have Javagal Srinath, Ashish Nehra, Irfan Pathan, Mohammad Kaif, Parthiv Patel, and Harbhajan Singh looking at the goings-on, on the pitch, from the pavilion. And (finally) we have Kapil Dev as the chief guest from whom Sameer snatches the microphone. Kapil Paaji also puts in his two-bit to help Sameer’s case with Rani and her father and put an end to the interruption that the drama was causing to the start of the game.

We are having this film making its debut on the blog to wish Salman Khan on his 56th birthday. Here is wishing him health and happiness and a long innings entertaining us Hindi Film Followers. This romantic song is composed by Sajid-Wajid and written by Arun Bhairav. It is sung by Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan.

माना के मुझे दिल देगा वो
मगर मेरी जान लेगा वो
माना के मुझे दिल देगा वो
मगर मेरी जान लेगा वो

लाल दुपट्टा

लाल दुपट्टा
उड़ गया रे तेरा हवा के झोंके से
लाल दुपट्टा
उड़ गया रे तेरा हवा के झोंके से
तुझको पिया ने देख लिया
हाय रे धोखे से
माना के तुझे दिल देगा वो
मगर अपनी जान देगा वो
माना के तुझे दिल देगा वो
मगर अपनी जान देगा वो

ओ ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ
हे हे हे हे हे
ल ल ल ला ला

लाख छुपाए बैठी थी मैं
चाँद से चेहरे को
इक पल में ही तोड़ दिया
बैरन हवा ने पहरे को

तेरे चेहरे क्या जाना
कुछ ऐसा जादू छा गया
मेरे चाँद को देख के
चाँद भी शर्मा गया
मुझे शरम सी आए
हाए तौबा
मेरा दिल घबराए
हाए तौबा
अरे आ बाहों में चूक ना जाएँ
ऐसे मौके से
तुझको पिया ने देख लिया
हाय रे धोखे से
माना के तुझे दिल देगा वो
मगर अपनी जान देगा वो
माना के मुझे दिल देगा वो
मगर मेरी जान लेगा वो

हाय
महका महका ये समा
कहने लगा आ प्यार कर
मेरे सोहने यार तू
दिलबर से इक़रार कर

तेरे प्यार की खुशबू
मेरी साँसों में समा गई
ले सजना सब छोड़ मैं
तेरे पीछे पीछे आ गई
तुझे प्यार हो गया
हाय तौबा
इक़रार हो गया
हाय तौबा
अब तो रोके ना रुकूँ
मैं किसी के रोके से
मुझको पिया ने देख लिया
हाय रे धोखे से
माना के मुझे दिल देगा वो
मगर मेरी जान लेगा वो
माना के तुझे दिल देगा वो
मगर अपनी जान देगा वो

लाल दुपट्टा
उड़ गया रे बैरी हवा के झोंके से
होय
लाल दुपट्टा
उड़ गया रे तेरा हवा के झोंके से
तुझको पिया ने देख लिया
हाय रे धोखे से
माना के मुझे दिल देगा वो
मगर मेरी जान लेगा वो
माना के तुझे दिल देगा वो
मगर अपनी जान देगा वो
