Hullo Atuldom

Another date of October for which I always need to write out a post for.

It being the birth date of an actor whose work I began liking post 1975- “Sholay” to be exact. I liked the way he delivered his dialogues. Some dramatic dialogues which he had casually uttered are iconic and classic and stuff which fans quote as legendary.

Remember ‘mere paas maa hai’ it was not said forcefully or with banging of fists or any such heavy add-ons. He was also given dialogues which were comic in nature -for example the cricket commentary in English that has made “Namak Halal” a movie worth watching; he even managed to squeeze in some comedy intto the fight sequence in the climax of the movie. But I always loved the late night scene in Asrani’s office when Amitabh Bachchan calls Asrani and Dharmendra for a meeting to discus the situation between Vasudha and himself. I know I need not mention that I am talking of the Hrishikesh Mukherjee ’70s classic “Chupke Chupke” and the expression that he had when he said “for safety’s sake main woh bhi batadoonga”- priceless. He was so nice at depicting his emotions and I may have mentioned this a few times in earlier posts about how the scene between Sanjeev Kumar and AB Sr. in “Khuddar” was memorable as both the actors spoke with their eyes. An added advantage the film industry had when working with AB Sr. was he was good in action sequences too and is known to have enacted many of them without using a body-double or ‘stuntman’ (in filmy parlance). He managed to overcome his awkwardness where dance (a necessity in Indian movies) was concerned. He has also tried his hand at singing for his characters; for which initially, he was made-fun-of as he was considered to be a tuneless singer but he has sung and many of them have been very popular with his fans.

Today’s post which celebrates this all-time favorite actor of mine turning a year older or a step closer to 80 has a song from the 2003 (can’t believe this film was 18 years back, time has just flown) B R films production and Ravi Chopra directed “Baghban”. It had music by Aadesh Srivastava and Uttam Singh and songs were penned by Sameer. Alka Yagnik, Hema Sardesai, Richa Sharma, Sneha Pant, Udit Narayan, Aadesh Srivastava, Sudesh Bhonsle and Amitabh Bachchan were the playback singers used.

This song is pictured with an emotional Raj Malhotra (AB Sr.) singing, and yearning for his wife Pooja (Hema Malini) who is staying with one of their sons and he himself with another son. The story of ‘Baghban’ was something which was popular in the 60s and early 70s; but even this movie was successful with the new generation moviegoers. This song can also been seen as proof of what I stated earlier in this post viz. “actors speaking with their eyes”; here it is Hema and AB Sr. They have played the old couple so convincingly. The song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and Alka Yagnik.

Here is wishing the (once) Angry- Youngman, Shahenshah of Bollywood, Star of the Millennium, Big B or AB Sr. (people in entertainment industry have been addressing him in this manner for a few years now) a Happy Birthday and lots of good health.

Hullo Atudom

“Main Khiladi Tu Anari” (1994) was a normal masala- action- emotion- comedy filled movie. It was directed by Sameer Malkan, produced by Champak Jain for Venus Records and Tapes. Dialogues were by Kadar Khan, story by Sachin Bhowmick, lyricists were Anwar Sagar, Maya Govind, Rahat Indori, Rani Malik, Zameer Kazmi and Hasrat Jaipuri. Anu Malik was the music director. It had Shilpa Shetty (in a double role) with Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Raageshwari, Shakti Kapoor, Beena, Mukesh Khanna, Shiva, Johnny Lever, and Kadar Khan in the cast. The movie was largely borrowed from the 1991 Hollywood movie ‘The Hard Way’ and some reviews of MKTA said (and I quote) ‘it was a notch above the original because of the presence of one of India’s biggest action stars, martial artist Akshay Kumar’; comparing his martial arts skills to Jean-Claude Van Damme and also praising his stunt work, and concluding that it “is a fun action-comedy” film. It was the second release in 1994 of the Akshay Kumar- Saif Ali Khan duo, the other one being ‘Yeh Dillagi’. It was also Akshay Kumar’s fourth success for 1994 others being ‘Mohra’, ‘Suhaag’ and ‘Elaan’ (all of them being multi-hero movies).

The story involves two brothers -Mukesh Khanna and Akshay Kumar; imaginatively called Arjun and Karan- who are cops. They have a sister – Raageshwari (Shivangi)- who is an ardent, crazy fan of movie star Deepak Kumar (Saif Ali Khan) Then there is the drug dealer- gangster Goli (Shakti Kapoor) whose mistress is the cabaret singer Mona (another unique name 🙂 ). Mona is pumped off by Goli’s henchman (Shiva) when Goli comes to know that she is going to testify against him, and in protecting Mona Inspector Arjun also is killed. Now Karan has only one objective- to book Goli and avenge his brother’s killing. He seeks the help of Basanti -a street dancer who is the replica of Mona (Shilpa Shetty). For this, he has Deepak Kumar masquerading as someone from China Town and transporting Basanti to Goli’s gang with the age-old explanation of Amnesia after falling on the rocks and injury to head etc. Then many things occur in the course of the movie reaching its climax. In between all this, Deepak Kumar falls in love with his fan and Karan’s sister Shivangi- after all she also needs to sing a song no?

For today’s post we are going to have the song that Deepak Kumar and Shivangi sing to proclaim their love; in the voices of Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik. This song is one that I have always liked. Only recently I discovered that this one is from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri: writer of the classics ‘ichak dana bichak dana’; ‘bhanwre ki gunjan hai mera dil’; ‘budtameez kaho ya kaho jaanwar’; ‘yaad kiya dil ne kahan ho tum’; ‘nain so nain naahi milao’; ‘Baat baat mein rootho na’— oh so many songs of his which I have been hearing, listening, humming, singing all along.

This lyricist who was a poet in Urdu and Hindi was a Filmfare award winner for ‘baharo phool barsaao mera mehboob aaya hai’ and ‘Zindagi ek safar hai suhana’ (my personal all time favorite and motto of life). Cannot resist mentioning the lines in ‘Zindagi ek safar hai suhana’: ‘hanste gaate jahaan se guzar, duniya ki tu parwaah na kar, muskuraate huye din bitaana, yahaan kal kyaa ho kisne jaana’.

Hasrat Jaipuri was born in Jaipur as Iqbal Hussain in 1922 (would this be his centenary year?) His education till middle school was in English medium and there after his maternal grandfather tutored him in Persian and Urdu. He began writing verses in his youth around the time when he fell in love with a neighbourhood girl named Radha. This has been the most widely talked-about anecdote in the entertainment industry and how this poem was used by Raj Kapoor in his 1964 film ‘Sangam’ as ‘yeh mera prem patra padhkar’.

As we can see from the above sample, from his long association with films (1949- 2004), it was a mixed-bag of songs, written by Hasrat Jaipuri, that are ever popular. Today, it is 23 years since his passing and we are remembering him with this song from MKTA which is making its debut.


Song-Paas wo aane lage zara zara (Main Khilaadi Tu Anaadi)(1994) singers-Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Anu Malik

Lyrics

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Taal’ which was released in ‘1999’.

I was staying at Bareilly (1998-2004) at that time. I remember to have watched this movie with my family and enjoyed it a lot. I liked it so much that I watched this movie twice. First time with my office colleague and second time with my family. I liked this movie and specially its music too. As was usual for a Subhash Ghai movie, this movie too had a good music scored by A.R. Rehman (who was collaborating with Subhash Ghai for the first time).

‘Taal-1999’ was Subhash Ghai’s home production and it was distributed under his company ‘Mukta Arts’ and ‘Tips International’.

Subhash Ghai was the producer and director of this movie. He co-authored writing with Javed Siddiqui (dialogues), and in writing screenplay with Sachin Bhowmick.

Story of this movie was written by Subhash Ghai.

The star-cast of this movie included Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Roy, Akshay Khanna, Amrish Puri, Alok Nath, Jividha Ashta, Mita Vashisht, Saurabh Shukla, Supriya Karnik, Prithvi Zutshi, Manoj Pahwa, Rajesh Khera, Bobby Darling, and many others.

This movie had twelve soundtracks including ten songs and two instrumental tracks. Lyrics for this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and music was composed by A.R. Rehman.

The music of this movie was well appreciated and successful.

Today’s song is sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Alka Yagnik. On screen Alok Nath lip-syncs in Sukhwinder Singh’s voice and Aishwarya Roy lip syncs in Alka Yagnik’s voice.

10th July 2021 was the sixty-fifth birthday of actor Alok Nath (born on 10th July’1956). We all know him as an established character actor and the various roles he had enacted in the Hindi movies. He made his film debut with 1982 English movie “Gandhi” directed by Richard Attenborough. Later on, he went to act in many ‘TV Soaps’ and Hindi movies. His notable works came in Rajshri Productions’ ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya-1989’, ‘Ham Aapke Hain Kaun-1994’ and ‘Ham Saath Saath Hain-1999’.

On this blog we belatedly wish Alok Nath a very happy birth anniversary and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

To mark this occasion, we listen to today’s song.

But before that, we also wish the singer of today’s song i.e., Sukhwinder Singh a very happy birthday on 18th July.

Sukhwinder Singh was born on 18th July’1971 (18.07.2021 will be his fiftieth birthday). He belongs to Amritsar Punjab. He started his musical career by releasing a Pop song album in Punjabi. Later on, he joined Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s troupe and also got an opportunity to sing under them for the movie ‘Khilaaf-1991’. He went on singing in some other movies which got unnoticed till he sung the song ‘Chhaiyya Chhaiyya’ in the 1998 movie ‘Dil-Se’. That also brough him his first ‘Filmfare Award’.

After ‘Chhaiyya Chhaiyya’ he became a household name. And with ‘Jai-Ho’ in the 2008 movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ Sukhwinder Singh got an international acclaim. He has also sung in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, and Urdu languages other than Hindi and Punjabi language.

Let us now enjoy today’s wonderful song composed by A.R. Rehman from the movie ‘Taal-1999’.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Alka Yagnik. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by A.R. Rehman.

With today’s song the movie ‘Taal-1999’ makes its debut on the blog.

Over to the song now …

Hullo Atuldom

“Ghar Ka Chiraag” is a title that has been used twice in Bollywood- in 1967 and 1989. The 1967 film had a cast of Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Balraj Sahni, Indrani Mukherjee, Dev Kumar, Biswajeet etc and had music by Madan Mohan for songs written by Kaifi Azmi. This was directed and produced by Jagdev Bhambri.
The 1989 film had Rajesh Khanna leading a cast of Neelam, Chunky Pandey, Om Shivpuri, Shafi Inamdaar, Navin Nischol and Dipika Chikhalia in a special appearance. It had music by Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan was the lyricist. This one was directed by Sikander Bharti and produced by Rajeev Kumar Choudhry.

The content in both the films seem to be different going by the synopsis available on the internet. But I know for a fact that “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (1989) was majorly inspired by the 1969 Balraj Sahni- Sadhana- Sanjay Khan starrer “Ek Phool Do Mail”. This statement of mine is sufficient to give the followers an idea about the movie, correct? Of course, there were minor differences in the story. In “Ek Phool Do Mali” (EPDM) Sadhana becomes an unwed mother because she is molested, whereas “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (GKC) had Neelam getting pregnant with Chunky Pandey’s child. In EPDM Sanjay was a mountaineer and GKC had Chunky as a racing enthusiast. Rest of the story was same in both the movies. And both movies had melodious songs.

GKC had eight songs with two songs having happy and sad versions. “Tutak tutak tutak tutiya” was very popular when the movie had released and I think it was inspired by some Punjabi folk song; this one had two versions. Another song ‘yeh kismat hai kya, jaanta hai wahi’ also had two versions. The happy version is when Kumar (Rajesh Khanna) is celebrating his happiness with wife (Deepika) and friends. We see that this song is echoing the thoughts that Dilip Kumar and Shammi Kapoor had put forth in this song.

In the second version we have Rajesh Khanna singing out his life experiences, and says ‘ek thokar lagi, toota sara nasha’.

Bappi Lahiri used Mohammad Aziz, Amit Kumar and Sapna Mukherjee (youtube is crediting Alka Yagnik for this song, need confirmation) for this song and Alisha Chinai and Amit Kumar for ‘Tutak tutak tutiya’. Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik and Sarika Kapoor (another new name, for me at least) were the other playback singers.
Mohammad Aziz who sang the sad version of today’s song would have celebrated his 67th birthday on July 2nd. He was born in Kolkatta. He sang, primarily, in Hindi, Bengali and Odia films plus some Sufi devotional songs and also various genres in 10 other languages. He was also credited as Munna in some movies. ‘Mard’ by Anu Malik was his breakthrough though the 1984 movie ‘Amber’ with music by Sapan-Jagmohan was his debut in Bollywood. He has sung alongside all the prominent singers of the ’80s and ’90s with music composed by RD Burman, Laxmi-Pyare, Ravindra Jain, Raamlaxman etc; even OP Nayyar and Naushad.

Amit Kumar who has sung the duet with Sapna Mukherjee (or it could be Alka Yagnik, as per the tagging on youtube) celebrates his birthday on July 3rd turns 69!!!!! Is it so!!!!! Unbelieveable!!!! Cannot think of some people as aging, right no 🙂

We have enough fans of Amit Kumar on this blog and everyone knows his history, lineage etc. His last film appearance was in the 1989 release ‘Mamta Ki Chhaon’ which was a movie left incomplete by Kishore Kumar-his father. He had acted in many movies made by his father beginning with “Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein” in 1964. He won the Filmfare award for best singer in 1982 for the 1981 release “Love Story”.

Here is remembering Munna a.k.a Mohammad Aziz on his birth anniversary and Wishing Amit Kumar many more Happy Returns. May he continue to entertain us. He is launching a special RD Burman tribute on his birth-date on his YouTube channel… looking forward to it

Happy version (Duet)

Sad version (Sung by Md Aziz)

Song-Ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri (Ghar Ka Chiraag)(1989) Singers-Alka Yagnik/ Sapna Mukherjee, Amit Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

aadmi kismat se kya
lad paayega bolo yahaan
darr ke kismat se ruka hai
iss zameen pe aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
hooo ooooo

ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hai wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

jitne oonche ho insaan ke hausle
utne oonche mahal uske kadmon taley
ho jitne oonche ho insaan ke housle
utne unche mahal uske kadmon taley

jinki mehenat ke dam se mahal hai khade
unko rehne ko milte hai kyon jhonpde
unki mehenat main ye akal shaamil na thhi
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
uski mehenat mein hogi kahi kuchh kami
warna kya hai jo kar na sake aadmi

aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banaayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

aaj ka aadmi chaand ko chhoo saka
phir bhi dharti ko khushaal na kar saka
yahaan mehenat se sholon pe bhi gul khile
buri kismat se barsaat mein ghar jale
aaa aaaa aaa aa
aa aa aa aa
ye takraar sadiyon se yoonhi chale
magar ho sake na kabhi faisle
ye sach hai ki mehnat se sab kuchh miley
magar jab ye kismat yahaan saath de
na mehenat hai chhoti na kismat badi
hai donon ke dam pe ye duniya khadi
ye kismat hai kya jaante hain khadi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

——————————————–
Sad version (Sung by Md Aziz )

har dua ek baddua
kyun ban gayi,
pal mein yahaan
bewafa kismat bhi,
uthth gaya sar se aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

ye kismat hai karti ajab faisle
yahaan milke sab kuchh
bhi kuchh na miley
bhatakti hai yoon dar-badar zindagi
ke marke bhi insaan mar na sakey
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri

ek thhokar lagi toota saara nasha
ab hai jaanaa kahaan kuchh nahin hai pata
laake kismat ne chhoda hai kis mod par
jo musaafir thha khud ban gaya raasta
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi

This movie was produced by Tess Mirza. It had Ayyub Khan, Samyukta and Raushni Jafery (both debutant), with Kabir Bedi, Beena, Goga Kapoor, Lalita Shukla and Saeed Jafery. They were supported by Brij Kishore, Virendra Singh, Kishore, Vinkoo Bhalla, Romi, Binder Agarwal.

Sharukh Sultan the director of this movie was also the write of this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Mushtaq Jalili and Sharukh Sultan. Editing of this movie was done by Sakharam Borse.

This movie was passed by censor board on 23.11.1993.

Music for this movie was composed by Nadeem-Sharvan.
This movie had nine songs (including two multiple version songs) written by Sameer, Madan Pal, Surendra Sathi and Anwar Sagar.

Singers Asha Bhonsle, Kumar Sanu, Pankaj Udhas, Alka Yagnik and Kavita Krishnamurthy had given their voices to the songs of this movie.

As mentioned above one song from this movie was posted on the blog on 30.11.2008.

Today’s song is a multiple version song, where the solo version is sung by Pankaj Udhas and the duet version is sung by Alka Yagnik with Pankaj Udhas. Lyrics are written by Sameer and music is composed by Nadeem-Shravan.

In picturisation of the solo song we can see Ayyub Khan lip syncing to the voice of Pankaj Udhas, actress Samyukta (I guess) and others. I am unable to guess the other actor in this song.

While video of the solo version is available, I could not locate the video of the duet version.

I would request readers who have watched this movie to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to today’s song (s 😊 )

Remembrance Day   —    Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar (of Laxmikant-Pyarelal)

Today is the 23rd remembrance day of Laxmikant S. Kudalkar one half of the music composer duo fondly known as L-P.  They were the sole torch bearers by 1988, of the melodious music of the golden era of HFM.   Though RD Burman was still around, but doing very few films.  L-P it seems never took a breather, till the demise of  Laxmikant on 25.05.1998.  I personally don’t know of any instance where Pyarelal composed a film score alone.

Laxmikant–Pyarelal received won 7 awards and 15 nominations for best music direction in the Filmfare awards.

Filmfare Award for Best Music Director– Won

1965 Dosti
1968 Milan
1970 Jeene Ki Raah
1978 Amar Akbar Anthony
1979 Satyam Shivam Sundaram
1980 Sargam
1981 Karz

They have composed close to 3000 songs out of which 896 are posted.  So the tally is so close to 900 mark.   Today is actually Remembrance Day of Sunil Dutt also.  I could have easily found a song by L-P featuring Sunil Dutt to post, but I was reminded of this wonderful group song from ‘Tezaab’ in a video forward in the family group.

Belgaum city has been put under strict lock down for the extended weekend from Friday to Monday.  The video is maybe shot last year showing empty streets, markets and by-lanes of the city.  It was moving very fast, so I failed to recognise much of the blurred views. This song from ‘Tezaab’ 1988 was playing in the background, so I decided to do this song post.  I have always liked the song for the humming in the background, and night journey in the battered vehicle with a broken wind shield.  Chunky Pandey and his friends are singing this song.  While sad looking Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor are trying to enjoy their antics.  Second stanza is filmed on these two with background singing by Alka Yagnik and Shabbir Kumar.  Nitin Mukesh is giving playback to Chunky Pandey.

Peevesie’s Mom would have liked to post this as Chunky Pandey’s song, I suspect.  But I have it as a night song from ‘Tezaab’ by Nitin Mukesh.  That’s how I remembered it and had thought of including it in the ‘Chaandni Raatien’ series.  But since there is no moon visible here, nor it is mentioned in the song, so desisted.

The other day after reading Madhuri’s birthday post on 15th May, I remembered many songs.  Even started one post for a Madhuri song, but could not complete it.  That one is also a hit L-P score.  But for now, that song will have to wait.

For a five-minute song, this is having only 2 stanza’s.  So, I looked for audio version, thinking that it may have an extra stanza.  But there is no extra stanza in the audio version, which is slightly longer with repetition of mukhda.

So, let’s enjoy this hummable, slow, melodious, pensive, meaningful song, written by Javed Akhtar.

And remember Laxmikant Kudalkar, the musician.

Hullo Atuldom

“100 Days” (1991) was produced by Jay Mehta (son of producer Pranlal Mehta), directed by Partho Ghosh. This was a first for both the producer and director. It starred Madhuri Dixit- Moon Moon Sen- Jackie Shroff- Javed Jaffrey- Laxmikant Berde – Sabeeha (daughter of yesteryear actress Ameeta of “Tumsa Nahin Dekha” fame) and a few others. It was a remake of a Tamil hit, a crime thriller with a twist. Madhuri played Moon Moon’s sister and Javed Jaffrey’s college friend. Jackie played a rich man and Laxmikant Berde his secretary.

Usually I like to give the synopsis of the movie with the song but not today. It will take away the fun of seeing the movie, just in case any follower of the blog feels like having a dekho of the movie, anytime. I have seen it in both languages and have loved it. Specially the climax and the various emotions that run through the movie. There is high drama, comedy, romance and a few entertaining songs. Partho Ghosh had an able cinematographer in the (late) Arvind Laad and the frames in the suspense scenes are well composed.

The music for the movie was by Vijay Patil better known as Raam Laxman. I remember that our in-house encyclopedia has mentioned somewhere on the blog that Raam -Laxman were brothers who were signed up for the 1977 movie ‘Agent Vinod’. Unfortunately, Raam the older brother passed away before the release of ‘Agent Vinod’ in 1976. But Vijay Patil continued his journey in the industry as Raam -Laxman and was very successful in the ’90s. He later changed his name to Raamlaxman post ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’.

“100 Days” had songs written by Dilip K Tahir, Dev Kohli and Ravinder Rawal. the singers used were Lata Mangeshkar, Alka Yagnik, S.P. Balasubramaniam, and Amit Kumar. Choreographers were Suresh Bhatt, Chinni Prakash, and Partho Ghosh himself. There are two songs that were filmed on the dancing duo Javed Jaffery and Madhuri of which one was a stage song.

Today we are not having the stage song but the other one, which is essentially keeping with the spirit of today i.e. April Fool’s day or All Fools day. Since morning there have been messages which are supposedly giving insight into why this day is celebrated and the last line of that message says, and I quote: “He used to read all fake stories, like you are doing now. It’s great idea fooling you”. Normally people play harmless pranks on their friends and dear ones on this day and I read somewhere that this is, generally, only till noon.

This is what I found on wikipedia:- “Some writers suggest that April Fools’ originated because in the Middle Ages, New Year’s Day was celebrated on March 25 in most European towns, with a holiday that in some areas of France, specifically, ended on April 1, and those who celebrated New Year’s Eve on January 1 made fun of those who celebrated on other dates by the invention of April Fools’ Day. The use of January 1 as New Year’s Day became common in France only in the mid-16th century, and that date was not adopted officially until 1564, by the Edict of Roussillon”.

Before getting on to the song I would like to congratulate Atulji, Sudhirji and all his followers and contributors and commentors on the blog’s 16300th post. Even if the blog is moving as per the movement of the moon, we are reaching centuries at a constant pace.

Here is the song in Alka Yagnik and Amit Kumar’s voices Sabeeha is in Javed’s team in playing pranks on Madhuri though they are all close friends. This song is written by Ravinder Rawal.

I would like to point out a few things in this song:-
(1) Javed jaffery is holding a small potli in his hand at the start of the song, akin to what Gabbar Singh had in ‘Sholay’.
(2) Madhuri has a step where she is shown mixing tambaaku (tobacco) like Gabbar Singh (of course).
These are the reasons why the song has stayed with me in all these years.

Blog Day :

4629 Post No. : 16280

Today’s song, like the previous song of “Jurm”(1990) discussed by me, is from a very recent movie ‘Criminal-1995’. The movie made its debut on the blog on 05.09.2008, with its beautiful romantic song ‘tu miley dil khile aur jeene ko kya chaahiye’. After that no song of this movie has been discussed so far.

Today after a gap of ‘4580’ days (breaking earlier record 😊 ‘4579’days) we are going to listen to the second song of this movie in the blog. Like others I was also not aware of the other songs of this movie except its song ‘tu miley dil khile aur jeene ko kya chaahiye’.

‘Criminal-1995’ was directed by Mahesh Bhatt (like ‘Jurm-1990’). And very rightly he first directed ‘Jurm-1990’(crime) and then moved on to ‘Criminal-1995’. (However, on our blog we first discussed ‘Criminal’ on 05.09.2008 and the ‘Jurm’ on 12.09.2008 😊 then in 2008).

Let us now move to the credits of this movie ‘Criminal-1995’.

As mentioned above it was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for ‘Vishesh Films’. It was produced by Mukesh Bhatt. It had Nagarjuna, Manish Koirala, Ramyah Krishnan, Laxmikant Berde, Johny Lever, Beena, Zaheer, Nasser, Sharad Babu with Gulshan Grover and Ajit. They were supported by Palav Vyas, Gurbachan, Mukesh Pandey, Vishweshara Rao, Jenny, Ravi Kiran, Dharmavupuru, Devdas Kankla and others. (Wikipedia mentions this as the last movie of actor Ajit.). Trishna made a guest appearance in this movie.

Screenplay of this movie was written by Sainath and dialogues were written by Jay Dixit. Editing of this movie was done by Sanjay Sankla.

It was passed by Censor Board on 21.07.1995 with restricted viewing certificate i.e., with ‘A’ certificate. This movie is said to be inspired by ‘The Fugitive-1993’ (an American movie) and was first made in Telugu in 1994 and later on in Hindi in 1995. Later it was dubbed and released in Tamil too.

This movie had eight songs (including ‘tu miley dil khile’ in three versions) written by Indeewar. Music for this movie was composed by M.M. Kreem.

Today we will listen to a song sung by Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik (as per ‘wiki’ and the YT link) and performed on screen by Nagarjuna and Manisha Koirala and 😊 Nagarjuna and Ramyah.

As mentioned above I mainly associate this movie with its song ‘tu miley dil khile aur jeene ko kya chaahiye’ only, so I was not aware about the other songs of this movie. And I have so far not watched this movie too.
While writing about today’s post, I checked other songs of this movie and I found today’s song somewhat familiar (maybe I had heard it during those days) when I was staying at Kota (Rajasthan).

let us now enjoy the music of ‘nineties’ and listen to this song …

I would request knowledgeable readers who have watched this movie to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Blog Day :

Today, February 8th is the 5th Remembrance Day of the poet and lyricist, Nida Fazli (12/10/1938 – 08/02/2016) who left for the heavenly abode on this date 5 years back. 80 years ago, Ghazal singer, Jagjit Singh (08/02/1841 – 10/10/2011) was born on this date. More than a co-incidental connection between the two, they had a special connection through their collaborations. Nida Fazli was the master of expressing the romance, realities and the philosophy of life by way of ghazals and nazms while Jagjit Singh added soul to Nida Fazli’s words through his emotive voice.

There was another co-incidence about Nida Fazli and Jagjit Singh. Both came to Mumbai around the same time, 1964 and 1965 respectively, for pursuing their career. It was Jagjit Singh’s first LP album with his wife, Chitra Singh titled ‘Unforgettable’ (1976) which made him popular as a ghazal singer. Almost at the same point of time, Nida Fazli had also become one of the most sought-after poets in mushairas all over India.

Both Jagjit Singh and Nida Fazli used very simplistic approach in making their ghazals popular among the masses. Jagjit Singh rendered ghazals in his emotive voice with simple music using only 3-4 musical instruments. He mostly avoided the use of semi-classical genre such as thumri and dadra as was the convention at that time. Nida Fazli, by and large, avoided the use of Persianised Urdu words in his ghazal. He used the mix of simple words from Hindi and Urdu to make them understandable to the masses. He moved away from the convention of ghazal writing as an expression of the unrequited love and the piognant mood associated with such love. Instead, he expressed through his poems the human relationships, socio-economic and political situations as also on realities of life. His poem depicted the humanist approach.

I have selected a few of couplets from his ghazals, some of which have been sung by Jagjit Singh, as examples of his non-conventional way of putting his thoughts in simple words with deep meanings:

uss ke dushman hain bahut aadmī achchha hoga
wo bhi meri hi tarah shahar mein tanha hoga

safar mein dhoop to hogi jo chal sako to chalo
sabhi hain bheed mein tum bhi nikal sako to chalo

[Note: This entire ghazal was recited by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi during a Rajya Sabha debate on March 8, 2016 in the context of Government’s difficulties for the smooth passage of bills in Rajya Sabha]

dhoop mein niklo ghataaon mein nahaa kar dekho
zindagi kyaa hai kitaabon ko hataa kar dekho

duniya jise kahte hain jaadoo kaa khilauna hai
mil jaaye to mittī hai kho jaaye to sona hai

hukoomaton ko badalne to kuchh muhaal nahin
hukoomaten jo badalta hai wo samaaj bhī ho

Muhaal= difficult

kabhi kabhi youn bhi ham ne apne jee ko bahlaaya hai
jin baaton ko ḳhud nahin samjhe auron ko samjhaaya hai

ghar se masjid hai bahut dur chalo youn kar le
kisi rote huye bachche ko hansaaya jaaye

hoshwaalon ko khabar kya bekhudi kya cheez hai
ishq keejiye phir samjhiye zindagi kya cheez hai

Both Nida Fazli and Jagjit Singh got associated with Hindi film industry almost at the same time. Nida Fazli wrote his first lyrics for ‘Satranj Ke Mohre’ (1974). Jagjit Singh rendered his first full-pledge song as a playback singer in Hindi film, ‘Aavishkaar’ (1973) with his wife Chitra Singh.

Despite both Nida Fazli and Jagjit Singh being in Mumbai since 1965 and both having the inter-related careers, it took almost 25 years for both of them to collaborate for the first time when Nida Fazli wrote the lyrics for the film ‘Billoo Baadshah’ (1989) for which Jagjit Singh was the music director and also the playback singer for one song. It took another four years when their first non-film album, ‘Insight’ was released in 1993. for which all the songs were written by Nida Fazli. Thereafter their collaborations continued until Jagjit Singh’s death kept them apart.

Nida Fazli entered the Hindi film industry as a lyricist at a time when the quality of song writing had the initial sign of deterioration. In the post-1980’s scenarios, his filmy songs stand apart from most of the songs written during that period. And when he joined with Jagjit Singh, their collaborative as well as individual efforts took us back to the golden period of Hindi film music for few moments.

On the occasion of the 5th Rememberance Day of Nida Fazli and 80th birth anniversary of Jagjit Singh, I have selected one of those Hindi film songs where Jagjit Singh has sung the song written by Nida Fazli. The song is ‘meri aankhon ne chuna hai tujhko duniya dekh kar’ from ‘Tarkieb’ (2000) with Alka Yagnik joining Jagjit Singh in rendition. The song was set to music by Aadesh Srivastav.

‘Tarkieb’ (2000) failed miserably at the box office and faded into oblivion. But the song under discussion has ensured that the name of the film is not forgotten. Such is the power of Jagjit Singh-Nida Fazli combination.

Hullo Atuldom

We are on the last date of the first month of the 21st year of the 21st century.

January happens to be a cold month in the northern hemisphere of the earth. And India is in the middle of having winter which is characterized by fog, mist, cold winds etc depending on the Latitude that one resides on. When I used to be in Mumbai, the closest I came to experiencing ‘Sardi’, ‘Thandi’ etc was in the last week of December or first week of January. That too in the morning hours, till about 8 o’clock, then the thermometer would read round about 27 and 30 degrees Celsius during the day. I don’t remember seeing fog or mist there, but I had different climatic experiences once we shifted to Bangalore. I have seen all winter related features which last from November to January end with temperatures dropping to 10 degrees etc. Now in my current station, which is in the midst of lots of greenery and away from the hustle bustle of city-life, though the temperature did not touch 10 degrees on any day, we have been experiencing thick fog, cold winds, cold floors, etc.

All this talk of winter and cold climate, in addition to sharing pictures of fog with friends and family reminded me of a whole set of songs:- ‘jab chali thandi hawa’, ‘thandi hawaa yeh chaandni suhaani’, ‘thandi hawaa kaali ghaata aa hi gayi jhoom ke’, ‘thandi hawaayen lehraake aayen’, ‘thandi thandi hawaa mein dil lalchaaye’, ‘mujhko thand lag rahi hain’ etc etc.

The songs that I have mentioned are all popular numbers from their times. But the movies of the new century are no different. They also have songs where the different characters are reacting to cold climates with lots of guts- it takes a lot of guts to shoot these songs in cold climates, with snow etc for added effect and in costumes that are of the thinnest fabric possible like chiffon, lace etc. (Possibly the only climate appropriate dressing was Saira Banu in ‘Junglee’ and some other heroines of the ’60s and Hema Malini in a few movies of the ’70s, recently I re-saw “Dost”.) For further enhancement of the scene we may even see short dresses with long boots. My sympathies with all the female actors who have done those songs and scenes. And what do the male actors wear in such songs- long coats, mufflers, gloves etc.

In the build up to this post I recalled a 23 year old song. This song was shot in the cold climes of Australia. I had mentioned this movie to fellow-atulites, on our WhatsApp group last week, when the India- Australia cricket series was on. The uniqueness about this song is the heroine is dressed in climate appropriate clothes and we have the hero trying to be MANLY and showing of his biceps etc in half-jacket and jeans. I also read the heroine reminiscing about how the actor was shivering during the shoot.

I am talking of Preity Zinta and Bobby Deol. The movie was “Soldier” which was released in 1998. It was produced by Ramesh Taurani of Tips Records and directed by the director-duo: brothers Abbas-Mustan. It had Anu Malik as music director and Sameer was the lyricist. It was the third highest grossing album of 1998 behind “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” and “Dil Se”.

This was Preity Zinta’s debut movie though she had signed “Kya Kehna” before this. “Dil Se” and “Soldier” have billed Preity Zinta as debutant; Preity had a supporting role in “Dil Se”. She was born in Shimla on 31st January. So today is her Birthday. Last I had written a post for her birthday was when she turned 40.

She has taken a sabbatical from acting a few times since 2009 for the sake of her IPL team. She has married her long-time American partner in 2016. In her career of almost 25 years, she has acted with all the top actors of the ’90s and later years. She has also acted in a movie with Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor where her character was negative and Schizophrenic. She was praised for her portrayal of the character. She also appeared alongside The Big B in an English language film that was directed by Rituparno Ghosh “The Last Lear” in 2007, this was a film-inside-a-film drama. She has also played the traditional glamorous actress in movies. She has shared screen space with top actresses like Madhuri Dixit, Rani Mukherjee etc too.

Today’s song is to wish Bobby Deol too, even if belatedly for his birthday which was on 27th, he turned 52. Born as Vijay Singh Deol into the film industry as the youngest child of Dharmendra and Prakash Kaur. He first faced the camera when he was 5 or 6 year old as the baby Dharam in “Dharam Veer” (1977). His first adult role was in “Barsaat” (1995) where another star-child Twinkle Khanna made her debut. He has one more “Barsaat” (2005) in the list of his films. He has appeared in a few mutli-starrers and also shared screen space with his father and brother in a few of their home productions. The “Yamla Pagla Deewana” series was good to see due to the Deols even if the story was lame, tame or weak. It is always entertaining to see the Deols.
