Hullo Atuldom

Top three actors of the golden era of Hindi cinema (from mid 1940s to late 1960s) were Dilip-Dev-Raj. They were nearly of the same age though their debut years were “Jwar Bhata” (Dilip Kumar) in 1944, “Hum Ek Hain” which came in 1946 (Dev Anand) and “Valmiki” also in 1946 which had Raj Kapoor in his first adult role but it was a tiny role. The three of them carved their own path and were the dominant stars of the Golden Era. Raj Kapoor went on to become a much-acclaimed actor-director earning him the title of ‘The greatest Showman’, Dev Anand also became an actor-director and was usually associated with slick and stylish city-based films and became popular for his trendy fashion sense as well, and Dilip Kumar came to be hailed as the greatest actor and set a high bar for future generations to emulate.

However, ironically all three never got the opportunity to come together on screen and act in a single film. Maybe no director or story writer could conceive a script to bring these stars together. However, there were two films where two of the three acted as co-stars and these two films therefore are rare treasures to be appreciated and preserved for this unique aspect.

The above are the thoughts expressed by a blogger in this post.

I had similar thoughts about the troika of the 1970s Jeetendra- Amitabh Bachchan- Rajesh Khanna and have stated it in this post. On further rewinding I recalled “Anand” (1970), “Namak Haram” (1973), “Gehri Chaal” (1973) & “Dharam Kaanta” (1982). That is a list of movies which had Amitabh Bachchan & Rajesh Khanna; Jeetendra & Amitabh Bachchan; and Rajesh Khanna & Jeetendra. But there were non after these. I am sure, readers will agree that it was a loss for Hindi Movie buffs. Here I would like to mention that Amitabh Bachchan was the last to make his debut in Hindi films; the other two had their first releases in 1964 and 1966.

This was a post to celebrate Jeetendra turning 80. With today’s post we are wishing The Big B- as many of his fans address him- on turning 80. He is still very active and his last movie released on 7th October.

For the last 10-15 years he has been playing roles of older characters but mostly roles specially written keeping his abilities in mind. “Piku” one of his recent movies had him play an eccentric 70 year old father of an architect (Deepika Padukone), living in Delhi. His act of the Hypochondriac with chronic constipation, who traces every problem to his bowel movements is a standout from his recent movies. In 2020, we saw him play a stingy old ghar jamai Chunnan ‘Mirza’ Nawab in ‘Gulabo Sitabo”. That role won him a Critics Best Actor award at the 66th Filmfare Awards. This man is still getting roles which get him awards.

Since 2000 he has been the host of the Indian version of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” i.e. “Kaun Banega Crorepati?” (KBC for short) and people who know me know that I am addicted to that show. But then my family and friends will say that I am addicted to anything that so much as shows Amitabh Bachchan’s shadow. I will stop any job at hand if I spot “Sholay”, “Deewar”, “Amar Akbar Anthony”, “Khuddar”, “Trishul”, “Don”, “Satte Pe Satta”, “Mahaan” and “Bhootnath”, “Piku”, “Black”, “Ab Tumhaare Hawaale Watan Saathiyo” and most of the 200 movies (maybe I will give a few of his initial movies a miss) that he has acted in, over the last 53 years. And when there is such a huge library of movies and songs to choose from getting the one that highlights the person’s abilities is not easy.
The song that I have chosen shows Amitabh Bachchan with Aruna Irani who incidentally was the first heroine who played AB Sr’s romantic interest in the 1972 released “Bombay To Goa”. There is an interview of Aruna Irani that keeps popping up on YouTube where she speaks of how uncomfortable AB Sr. used to be in the dance sequences of “Bombay To Goa”. AB Sr. was always good at action, emotion, comedy etc; today’s song will show the improvement that had come in his dancing over the years.

The song is from the 1983 released “Mahaan” which was directed by S. Ramanathan. If I am not wrong he had directed “Bombay To Goa” also. “Mahaan” had AB Sr. in a triple role of father and sons who are twins. Waheeda Rehman, Zeenat Aman and Parveen Babi played the heroines. Amjad Khan led the brigade of villains that included Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Sujit Kumar, Mac Mohan. Ashok Kumar, Mukri, Urmila Bhatt, Aruna Irani and Meenakshi (or was it Nandita Thakur) who formed the rest of the cast. The songs were written by Anjaan and RD Burman was the music director. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, RD Burman and Amitabh Bachchan were the playback singers used.

Happy 80th Birthday to the Darling of the masses. Happy Birthday to the Big B. Happy Birthday to Amitabh Bachchan.


Song-Har chhori raani hiyaan har chhora raaja(Mahaan)(1983) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

hmmm mm mm
ee galiyan ka dharam alag hai
alag hai reet riwaaz
kaa samjhe
na samjhe to samajh lo hamse
ham samjhaa den aaj

har chhori raani hiyaan
har chhora raaja
har chhori raani hiyaan
har chhora raaja
magar kabhi baja nahin
hiyaan band baaja
magar kabhi baja nahin
hiyaan band baaja

aawara galiyan ki pariyaan
dekh uthhe dil jhoom
waah waah
kya maza
aawara galiyan ki pariyaan
dekh uthhe dil jhoom
itar paan gajre ki mahak
ghunghru mujre ki dhoom
chanchhan chhanan chhanan
khankhan khanan khanan
chanchhan chhanan chhanan
khanan khanan
natkhat chhori
ban ke chakori
chanchal gori
kare dil ki chori
kabhi lachak lachak kar
kabhi chhamak chhamak kar
kabhi jhatak jhatak kar
kabhi matak matak kar
kabhi latkau latkau
kabhi jhatkau jhatkau
kabhi thumkau thumkau
kabhi matkau matkau
lachak lachak chhamak chhamak
jhatak jhatak matak matak
palat tera dhyaan kidhar hai bhai

har chhori raani hiyaan
har chhora raaja
haan
har chhori raani hiyaan
har chhora raaja
magar kabhi baja nahin
hiyaan band baaja
magar kabhi baja nahin
hiyaan band baaja

suno suno
ee aasik maasuk ke jhagde
ee meethi takraar
aa haa haa haa
ee aasik masuk ke jhagde
ee meethi takraar
baat baat mein baat badhe to chale teg talwaar
are chal gayi laathi
badi mar gulaati
are chal gayi laathi
badi mar gulaati
chheer vayra
tamacha koochh
chheer vayra
tamacha kooch
chheer vayra
tamacha kooch
aah
are bam babam bam bambu
tad patrika tambu
kabhi tadip tad kabhi satykam
kabhi kurukshetar ka lambu
bambu
tambu
kabhi tadip tad kabhi satykam
kabhi kurukshetar ka lambu

bar jorikar na sainya
ho bar jori kar na sainya
ho meri chhod chhod bainya
chhod baiya
ho padoon painyaan
palat tera dhyan kidhar hai bhai

har chhori raani hiyaan
har chhora raaja
bhai
har chhori raani hiyaan
har chhora raaja
magar kabhi baja nahin
hiyaan band baaja
magar kabhi baja nahin
hiyaan band baaja

hey shiv shambhu
uthha ke taal tamboora
aur ukhaaaad de tambu

are hiya raat bhar raas rachaawen
dharam k thekedar
sach to ee hai
inhi ke dum pe chale hai ee baazaar
khabardar hoshiyar thaanedar hawaldar
pahredar aur jamaadar
pakad lo in bandaron ko
aur
suno suno in ghonchu paakhandiyon ke kaarykram
arre vadki jinko sunke toot jaayenge tumhaare saare bharam

arre din bhar ye jogi re jogi
haa
raat bhar ye bhogi re bhogi
dekho re dekho
roop ke lobhi kaise hai ye dhongi re dhongi
inki najar me hum saare hain mooli gajar aalu gobhi

har chhori raani hiyaan
har chhora raaja
haan
har chhori raani hiyaan
har chhora raaja
magar kabhi baja nahin
hiyaan band baaja
magar kabhi baja nahin
hiyaan band baaja
