Hullo Atuldom

“Bombay” (1995) was written & directed by Mani Ratnam (born Gopala Ratnam Subramaniam) and produced by S. Sriram & Jhamu Sughand. It was the second installment of Ratnam’s trilogy of films that depict human relationships against a backdrop of political turmoil. ‘Roja’ (1992) and ‘Dil Se’ (1998) were the other two.

‘Roja’ had the Kashmir problem causing upheaval in the lives of a newly-wedded couple, when the husband (a cryptologist) is sent on a mission to help Army communications centre intercept military intelligence.
‘Dil Se..’ had Assam insurgency as the backdrop which causes problems in the life of a program executive of All India Radio when he is sent to cover festivities in Assam.

I am going to control myself from giving further descriptions of ‘Roja’ and ‘Dil Se..’. Another common thread between the three films were that the A R Rehman the ‘Mozart of Madras’ was the music director.
“Bombay” was initially thought up as a romantic drama involving a Hindu boy and Muslim girl. At the time that Mani Ratnam was writing the movie India was going through a phase and there were riots post the demolition of the Babri Masjid. It affected him to the extent that the incident and its aftermath found its way into the story. Thus an ordinary love story of a Muslim girl running away to join her love (a Hindu) at his work place in Bombay and the troubles that they faced in riot torn city became a commercially & critically successful movie.

The movie had a cast of Arvind Swamy, Manisha Koirala, Raja Krishnamoorthy, Nassar, Tinnu Anand, Akash Khurana, Prakash Raj etc. Master Hriday & Master Harsha played the twin sons born to the young couple who are named Kabir Narayan & Kamal Basheer. Sonali Bendre & Nagendra Prasad appeared for a song. I learnt, as I sat to write this, that Nagendra Prasad is the brother of Prabhu Deva & Raju Sundaram and son of choreographer/ director Mugur Sundar.

A small titbit about the movie or we can call it a thoughtful casting by Mani Ratnam- Kitty a.k.a. Raja Krishnamoorthy played Basheer the heroine’s father & Nassar played Narayan Pillai the hero’s father. Another titbit about Kitty is that he is born & brought up in Mumbai and I feel great pride in saying that he is an alumni of my school and is an MBA from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management studies. He is one of the actors who has a corporate background, made his debut in films through Mani Ratnam’s ‘Nayakan’ (1987), did a lot of films through the 80s & 90s; post 2000 he is back in the corporate world and acts in the odd film since 2017. He has also written Business and Life Management book. He is very vocal about civic issues.

Here I also feel like talking about Sonali Bendre (the dancer in today’s song) who is a Cancer- survivor. She was born on 1st January 1975 in Mumbai. She made her debut in films through the modelling world. Her debut film was “Aag” in 1994 opposite Govinda where she played a college student who commits suicide on being forced to marry someone whom she doesn’t like. She won a LUX new face award in that years’ Filmfare awards. She has acted opposite all top heroes of the 90s before quitting for family life in 2004. But she has been frequent on the small screen as host, judge etc in television shows. She has also appeared in Tamil & Telugu films. She was diagnosed with Metastatic Cancer in 2018 & underwent treatment in New York. Wishing her all the best and good health too.

The songs for the Tamil version were written by Vairamuthu and Vaali. The Hindi (dubbed) version had Mehboob as the lyricist. Mehboob (Alam Kotwal) had worked with A R Rehman in ‘Rangeela’ and was introduced to Mani Ratnam by ARR. That is how he came to write songs for the dubbed “Bombay”. Today’s song is in the voice of Remo Fernandes.

With this post we also wish A R Rehman on his birthday today. The multi award winner made India proud by winning international awards including two Academy Awards. Wishing the Padma Shri award winner A R Rehman a very Happy Birthday.


Song-Ek ho gaye ham aur tum (Bombay)(1995) Singer-Remo Fernandes, Lyrics-Mehboob, MD-A R Rahman

Lyrics

ek ho gaye ham aur tum
to ud gayi neenden re
aur khanki paayal masti mein
to kangan khanke re
hamma hamma
hamma hamma hamma
hey hamma, hamma
hamma, hamma, hamma
hai pehli baar mile
tumpe dam ye nikle
tumpe ye jawaani dheere dheere madham machle re
hamma, hamma
hamma, hamma, hamma
hey hamma, hamma
hamma, hamma, hamma

khili chaandni jaisa ye badan janam mila tumko
man mein socha thha jaisa rup tera aaya nazar hamko
sitam khuli khuli ye sanam gori gori
ye baahen karati hai yoon
hame tumne jab gale lagaaya to kho hi gaye ham to
hamma, hamma
hamma, hamma, hamma
hey hamma, hamma
hamma, hamma, hamma
ek ho gaye ham aur tum
to ud gayi neenden re
aur khanki paayal masti mein to kangan khanke re
hamma
hamma, hamma, hamma
hey hamma
hamma, hamma, hamma
hai pehli baar mile
tumpe dam ye nikle
tumpe ye jawaani dheere dheere madham machle re
hamma
hey hey hamma

khuli zulf mein teri aankhon mein madhosh ho gaye
gore gaal pe bheege honth pe
yaara fida ho gaye
sanam pyaar mein bheegi raat mein
pyaas jagaate rahe
khatam na ho sanam pyaar ka mausam
chaahat badhti rahe
hamma, hamma
hamma, hamma, hamma
hey hamma, hamma
hamma, hamma, hamma
ek ho gaye ham aur tum
to ud gayi neenden re
aur khanki paayal masti mein
to kangan khanke re
hamma, hamma
hamma, hamma, hamma
hey hey hamma, hamma
hey hey hamma, hamma, hamma
hey hamma, hamma
hamma, hamma, hamma
hey hey hamma, hamma
