Hullo Atuldom

The screen turns to a dark, cloudy sky. There is thunder and lightning. A shimmering disk appears against this backdrop, accompanied by music that has certain magical quality about it. As the background score gently works its way to a crescendo, finishing with a flourish of cymbals, a Greek column-like pedestal, bearing the ‘NH Films’ insignia appears against a smoke-filled screen. Almost instantly a booming voice recites a couplet, with a soft but distinct drum roll accompanying the oration. The couplet goes:

Kya ishq ne samjha hai, kya husn ne jaana hai
Hum khaaq-nasheenon ki thokar mein zamaana hai

The voiceover ends with an emphatic drumbeat. The credits follow led by the opening credit, NASIR HUSAIN FILMS Presents…..

This is from the introductory page of the book “Music Masti Modernity- The cinema of NASIR HUSAIN” by Akshay Manwani – a gift that my daughter gave me last year for Mother’s Day. From the book I learnt that Maulana Abul Kalam Azad was Nasir Husain’s mother’s maternal uncle. He (Nasir Husain) was the fourth of five children with Tahir Husain being his younger brother. Actors Tariq (of kya hua tera waada) and Aamir Khan are his nephews where Tariq is his older brother – Anees’s son and Aamir is Tahir Husain’s son. His grandson Imran Khan (daughter Nuzhat’s son) is an actor. A very interesting trivia that I learnt from the book is that Nasir Sa’ab’s wife – Ayesha Khan- was born Margaret Francina Lewis, and she was an assistant choreographer in films.Subodh Mukherjee used his assistant Nasir and the choreographer’s assistant whenever he setup shots and almost played cupid in their life.

We (the regular followers of this blog) know that Nasir Husain began his life in the film industry as a writer at Filmistan when the screenwriter Aghajani Kashmeri fell ill and Nasir Sa’ab was asked to complete the unfinished dialogues for “Chandni Raat” (1949); the book says he was not credited for this. We also know that he went on to produce and direct films and gave audiences breezy musical romantic entertainers right till the 1980s when he directed “Zabardast” (1985) which was produced by Mushir-Riaz which had Rati Agnihotri- Jaya Prada- Tanuja- Geeta Kak- Sunny Deol- Rajiv kapoor- Sanjeev Kumar- Amrish Puri and others in the cast.

1988 saw Nasir Sa’ab’s son Mansoor Khan turn director with “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak” which was produced by Nasir Husain Films, and the story-screenplay and dialogues were by Nasir Husain. The next two films directed by Mansoor Khan- “Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar” {JJWS (1992)} and “Akele Hum Akele Tum” (1995) also had dialogues by Nasir Husain. That means career began and ended Nasir Sa’ab with being a writer. I think he hung up his boots post this.

“Yaadon Ki Baraat” (1973) made by Nasir Husain Films had a long song which changes beat/ tempo etc. with ‘Dil mil gaye toh um khil gaye’- which is almost like a second song with a life of its own. The song closes with Tariq, Zeenat Aman, Vijay Arora and the whole audience breaking into ‘Dum Maro Dum’ and we get the third song. Nasir Husain repeated this kind of song picturisation in ‘Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahin’ and ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai’. Mansoor Khan followed his father’s formula of two-three songs in one with ‘Jawaan ho yaaro yeh tumko hua kya’; ‘deewane hum pyar ke, parwaane hum pyar ke’ and ‘Naam hai mera Fonseca” in “JJWS”. Today we shall see one of the three.

We can see Aamir Khan, Ayesha Julka, Pooja Bedi, Deepak Tijori, Mamik Singh, Kiran Jhaveri, Deven Bhojani etc in this stage song which is sung by Udit Narayan and Vijeyta Pandit. It is written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Jatin-Lalit.

Incidentally 13th March was Nasir Husain’s death anniversary and 14th March is Aamir Khan’s birthday. So here is a song connecting the Uncle and Nephew.

Lyrics

jawaan ho yaaron
yeh tumko hua kya
aji hamko dekho zara aa
jawaan ho yaaron
yeh tumko hua kya
aji hamko dekho zara
ye maana abhi hain khaali haath
na honge sada yahi din raat
kabhi toh banegi apni baat
arre yaaron
mere pyaaron
meri maano
ho dildaaron

jawaan ho yaaron
yeh tumko hua kya
aji hamko dekho zara
yeh maana abhi hain khaali haath
na honge sada yahi din raat
kabhi toh banegi apni baat
arre yaaron
mere pyaaron
meri maano ho dildaaron

mehnat se miley jo
uspe guzaar
dooje ke maal ko
thhokar se maar
aayegi idhar bhi
ek din bahaar
hoga yeh zamaana
ham pe nisaar

yeh maana abhi hain khaali haath
na honge sada yahi din raat
kabhi toh banegi apni baat
arre yaaron
mere pyaaron
meri maano ho dildaaron

isko chhoona nahin
hey raam raam
ye toh hai paap ki
gathhri tamaam
kab yeh rut badal jaaye
kisko khabar
lag jaaye hamein bhi
sone ke par

phir aise udenge
ham sab yaar

gulon se ladegi motar car
haseena hogi gale ka haar
arre yaaron mere pyaaron
meri maano ho dildaaron

jawaan ho yaaron
yeh tumko hua kya
aji hamko dekho zara
yeh maana abhi hain khaali haath
na honge sada yahi din raat
kabhi toh banegi apni baat
arre yaaron
mere pyaaron
meri maano ho dildaaron
