Happy Dussehra Atulites

Today’s song is a modern version of the Ram- Raavan story. It is from the 2001 supernatural thriller “Aks” produced by Amitabh Bachchan and Jhamu Sughand. Director was Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. The movie had a star cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Raveena Tandon, Nandita Das, Manoj Bajpai and Amol Palekar in a special appearance. The songs were written by Gulzar and Anu Malik was the music director. Today’s song is in the voices of Amitabh Bachchan, Nandita Das and Kavita Mundra.

I like the touches of modernism that Gulzar has written into the song:
Lanka- Bharat baant diya hai.
Communication systems have changed- the song mentions phone lines are obsolete and emails were in use. (2018 even emails are rare)
And finally- jab tak ram hai raavan rahega (a real mirror to the times we are in)

Jai Bolo Shree Ram Ki.
Jai Maa Durge. Jai Mata Di.

Blog Day : 3737 Post No. : 14688

This song from the film Suhaag  (1979) has been waiting in my drafts for a long time now. It is a group song based on Punjabi folk and a popular one at that.

It so happened that when I saw Peevesie’s Mom’s post yesterday on Rekha’s birthday, got an idea in the mind to do a post for Amitabh & Rekhas birthday together with a song of both of them.  There are a lot of songs featuring these two as a couple yet to be posted in the blog.

Somehow I  thought of the song “Naam Re. . . Sabse Bada Tera Naam, O Sheronwaali” from Suhaag, as a trio celebration of Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha’s birthdays plus Navratri.  But when I looked up the movie in the list, this song is already posted by Peevesie’s Mom in 2016. So that choice got ruled out.

Further yesterday was blue day for Navratri, there was a photo session of all ladies in the office, which is the norm all over nowadays in Mumbai offices at least. A colleague made a collage of those photos and put it on the status of the office ladies whatsapp group. It so happened she had mistakenly included one group photograph from another office.

When I pointed it out to her, she said “galti se ho gaya re. . .” . I asked my husband if there was a song with the word ‘galti‘ , he said there was no such song but there is a song with the word ‘bhool‘,  e.g. “Hum Se Bhool Ho Gayee Hum Ka Maafi Dai Do” (‘Ram Balram’, 1980). I remembered the song “Hum Se Ka Bhool Hui Jo Ye Sazaa Hum Ko Mili” (‘Janta Hawaldar’, 1979). But since the song from ‘Ram Balram’ has both Rekha & Amitabh I shared the link to that song in the group. I am appreciated for thinking of a song at the drop of a hat, since we have a Hindi film song for all moments and occasions. I have reliable help in this endeavor, what with my husband being a filmy buff, YouTube etc. 🙂

So back to the song – today is yellow day and in this song at least Parveen Babi can be seen in full yellow, sunny splendour. And it has both Rafi  & Asha Singing for Amitabh & Rekha.  Asha Bhosle in giving playback to Parveen Babi too and Shailendra Singh is doing the honours for Shashi Kapoor. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist for this song composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Amitabh Bachchan is in disguise in this song to hide his identity from friend Shashi Kapoor, which is uncovered at the end of the song by Shashi Kapoor. Overall a colourful and enjoyable song to suit a celebratory occasion.

This bhangra song is filmed in the old Blighty’s Hyde Park – London, if I am not mistaken.


Song – Teri Rabb Ne Bana Di Jodi (Suhaag) (1979) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle (for Rekha), Asha Bhosle (for Parveen Babi), Shailendra Singh, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Lakshmikant Pyaarelal
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle

Blog Day : 3737 Post No. : 14686

Hullo all in Atuldom

11th October. A day when all fans of the star of the millennium go on overdrive to wish him on his blog page, Facebook page, Twitter handle etc. He also has kept pace with these new age phenomena and is very active on these social networking sites, either himself or through his well-paid staff. I am no different, I also wish him on his twitter and blog page (in existence for the last 10 years), and wait for a day in my life when I may get a chance to see him in person- my family thinks I am crazy, never mind that 🙂 . (The closest I have come to standing with him is when I visited Madame Tussauds in London, in 2015). So is the case with our blog, I try to write a post every year for this date.

Happy Birthday to you Dear Amitabh Bachchan.

What do I write about this actor that has not been said before. He is, in absolute sense of the term, not a great actor and its about time we should admit it. But he has a quality called persistence that helped him in the initial stages of his career; when he didn’t give up even after a string of flops before ‘Zanjeer’ (1973) and ‘Deewar’ (1975) happened. He has another quality – eye for detail. I have heard from a friend of mine (she used to be an assistant to Prakash Mehra in the 80s) about how during the filming of ‘Jaadugar’ (1989) he used to check every bit of his costume and take care of continuity from one scene to another. One other quality that he has is valuing time and it has been said by many of his co-stars how they were forced to turn up for shoots on time when Amitabh was their co-actor.

In the recent episode of ‘Rangoli’ on Doordarshan I heard how his style of wrapping a handkerchief around his hand and of pushing his hand into his trouser pockets came about. It is a known fact that Amitabh Bachchan is very accident prone and on Diwali, in 1983 or 84, a sparkler or some firecracker burst in his hand and he had the burn scar for some time (this was widely reported in the newspapers back then), this was also the time when he was shooting for “Inquilaab” and “Shaarabi” and these are the movies where he puts his hand into his trousers. Another example to show that he valued time and didn’t ask for a break in the shoot to recover from the scars.

He has been ever grateful to people who stood by him in his worst times be they producers, directors, actors anyone. I suppose these are some qualities that have helped sustain his charisma all through these 50 years in Bollywood. Wow! 50 years and still active!!

No more from me about my favourite actor.

He made a great team with Manmohan Desai and gave us movies which, though not-entirely logical or believable, were extremely entertaining. If in ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ (1977) Manmohan Desai rescued Amitabh’s mother from the clutches of Jeewan and Ranjeet with the help of a snake, in ‘Mard’ (1985) it was a tiger. In addition, the tiger guides the mother (the eternal ‘Maa’ – Nirupa Roy) towards a waiting boat, pulling her by the ‘pallu’ as if it were a pet dog on a leash. The icing on the cake is the scene when ‘Maa’ bows before the tiger, and it raises its paw to bless her. Man Desai also improved upon Amitabh’s famous ‘Deewar’ scene of remonstrating before the Lord Almighty – he made him sing a song to ‘Maa Sheronwaali’ in ‘Mard’, threatening Her with dire consequences if he cannot or does not meet his mother. And sure enough, by the time the song ends, his mother manages to reach the temple. Thank god for Manmohan Desai’s imagination and Amitabh believing in him.

It is Navaratri time and there is a lot of religious fervour happening all round. In all the states of South India, we have ‘Bomma Kolu‘- Bomma means dolls and Kolu is the artistic arrangement of these on seven tier stands which people display in their homes for nine days, have guests over for haldi-kumkum etc. Western India celebrates the festival with Mata ki Aarti followed by Garba and Dandiya. The festival is called ‘Durga Pooja‘ in Eastern India and there are sarvajanik pandals (temporary worshipping places) where idols of the Mother Goddess with her sons – Ganesh and Kartikeya and other devis – Lakshmi and Saraswati, are installed. And North India has the Navratri with Devi Pooja as well as Ram Leela, the staging of the play based on the life story of Lord Ram. All in all, an enjoyable festival culminating with Dussehra on the 10th day.  Happy Navratri to all.

The song with this post is the Mata ki Bhent (song in worship of the Mother Goddess) that Amitabh sings in ‘Mard’. Playback singer is Shabbir Kumar with Anu Malik being the music director and Indeewar the lyricist.

A few more points about the song – how did anyone allow the tangewala (Amitabh) to light the camphor in his palm? Does lighting the camphor on kumkum covered palm protect the palm from getting burnt? Please note the reaction of the temple pujari (priest) when Amitabh tries to poke himself with the trishul. Is anyone allowed to anoint an idol with blood?

Let us enjoy this masaaledaar song. 🙂

Happy Birthday Amitabh Bachchan.

Blog Day : 3699 Post No. : 14617

Hullo to all in Atuldom

I have written two posts in the past to celebrate this actor’s birthday. Both times the occasion had been a last-minute discovery. Also last year I happened to discover that this actor shared his special date with music composer- Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma, of the Laxmikant- Pyarelal duo.

Pyarelal Sharma was the son of a trumpeter popular as “Babaji” or Ramprasad Sharma and learnt the basics of music from his father. He was tutored to play the violin by a Goan musician, Anthony Gonsalves – a music composer and arranger who had assisted many prominent music directors of the 50s & 60s and it is widely believed that hugely popular song “My name is Anthony Gonsalves” that Laxmi-Pyare composed for Manmohan Desai’s Amar Akbar Anthony was a tribute to Pyarelalji’s music teacher. He made his entry into movies along with Laxmikant Kudalkar by assisting all the reputed composers of the 50s. In fact, they also assisted R D Burman in his first movie “Chhote Nawab” and their friendship continued even after L-P made a name for themselves in later years. The stats page of our blog gives the number of songs by this duo as 2901 and we have posted only 772 songs; so that leaves us with a very wide choice to go with this post.

But when we try to find songs in combination with the actor who turns a year older today, things become slightly difficult. Though L-P have given music to many movies that starred this actor there are very few songs actually picturised or choreographed on him. This is partly because in the period when L-P were active this actor used to primarily play villainous roles. He might be present on the scene during a song or two but not actually shake a leg, “John Jaani Janardhan” from Naseeb is one such example (that was an L-P composition)- our today’s birthday boy is present in the song as Amitabh’s boss. Now I see an “Aah! I know who she is talking about” reaction from whoever is reading this.

Of course, there are two bosses for Amitabh in that song and so, without further ado, let us wish Shakti Kapoor on his birthday. 🙂
Today’s song is from Yash Johar’s Dharma Productions’ 1990 release “Agneepath” which was directed by Mukul Anand. The title was taken from Harivanshrai Bachchan’s poem with the same name which is recited at the beginning of the movie. It starred Amitabh Bachchan and Danny in main characters and Shakti Kapoor plays himself (an actor visiting Kancha Cheena, the villain, in his den) in a guest appearance for a song and dance sequence along with Archana Puran Singh.

The song confirms, what I always felt, that Shakti Kapoor was a better dancer than many of the lead actors, barring Mithun Chakravarty Jeetendra or Govinda (to name a few of our good dancing actors), of that time who used to be his co-stars. He definitely had a sense of rhythm. And he looks so good in this song, that I have a feeling he should have got a few lead actor or hero-type roles. I remember seeing him in a movie where Smita Patil falls in love with him and marries him only to be cheated later on. The same was the case with Swaroop Sampat in Himmatwala and Karamdaata.

The song was written by Anand Bakshi. Aadesh Shrivastava and Runa Laila are the playback singers. Goga Kapoor and Bob Christo are seen frolicking around in the party.

Here is wishing Pyarelalji and Shakti Kapoor a very Happy and musical birthday today (3 september 2018).

Blog Day : 3672 Post No. : 14555

Bappi Lahiri is a music director whose name is to this date associated with “Disco” music. He is also regarded as one who hastened the end of the golden era of HFM.

It may sound ironic that when one has to discusses Bappi Lahiri’s better compositions in HFM, one discusses his non disco songs, many of them from his pre disco phase. Even the great compositions of Bappi Lahiri during his “disco” phase were non disco songs. It was not “Disco Dancer” (1982) songs, but non disco songs from “Namak Halal”(1982), “Sharaabi”(1984) and “Aitbaar”(1985) that are fondly remembered to this day.

Why is it so ? It is easy enough to explain. Look at the singers of the non disco movies. Look at the lyrics of the non disco movie songs vis a vis the Disco movie songs. And also look at the actors who featured in the songs. Chalk in disco, cheese in non disco songs.

In this blog we mostly cover music of HFM era. Bappi Lahiri began his career when HFM era was still on and he created some memotable songs in his earlier movies. “Zakhmee”(1975) caught the imagination of the music lovers. I for a considerable period thought that R D Burman was the composer for this movie !

“Chalte Chalte”(1976) title song has become an iconic farewell song and it is sung in all get togethers in India till today that are held to bid farewell to people.

Songs of “Toote Khilaune”(1978) and “Shiksha”(1979) unfortunately did not become popular but what great songs they were. I feel that the failure of his great songs early in his career may have turned Bappi Lahiri into a cynic and he may have told himself-“to hell with classy music that does not sell.” His “disco” music indeed began selling like hot pakodas.

I intend to cover all available songs of music directors who were active during the golden era of HFM. Bappi Lahiri is a music director who only partially belongs to the golden era, so all his songs will not be covered in the blog. While I will cover all his songs created till 1980s, I will cover only those post 1980 songs of Bappi Lahiri that I feel belong here. There are indeed some such post 1980 songs, viz “Namakhalaal”(1982), “Sharaabi”(1984) etc that I have discussed earlier.

Bappi Lahiri is now on 99 songs in the blog. I had originally intended to cover one of his remaining worthy songs from post 1980 era, but now I feel that I should post one “rare” song on this occasion as we often do in the blog. This “rare” song is from a “rare” movie. This movie is “Ahsaas”(1979) which was a quickie movie made by G P Sippy in between his “mega” projects that he was known for. The movie, which was directed by S K Suri for Sippy Films, Bombay had a cast of largely unknown newcomers. Deena and Parwez were the lead pair. Others in the cast were Rakesh Bedi, Kiran Vairaale, Sahil, Reeta Raani Kaul, Chaand Usmani, Leela Mishra, Sundar, Mohan Sherry, Asha Potdar, Arun Desai, Deepak Raj, Sanjay Kaushik, Ashok Junior, K S Deshpande, Deenanath etc. Realising that the movie would fail to attract audiences unless it had a few big names, the movie makers had roped in names like Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Simmy, Bindu, Simple Kapadia and Amjad Khan. Amitabh Bachchan and Bindiya Goswami were also there in special roles. HFGK does not mention mention their names, but their faces were plastered prominently in the publicity posters of this movie.

Amitabh Bachchan and Bindiya Goswami figure in one party song in “Ahsaas”(1979). This song has been forgotten by most music lovers. I have chosen this song to serve as the 100th song of Bappi Lahiri in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Bindiya Goswami lip syncs in Lata’s voice,Amitabh Bachchan, who towers over every other participant in the picturisation dances in the song with a girl nearly one and a half foot shorter than him.

This forgotten sung is sung nicely by Lata. Indeewar is the lyricist. His lyrics show how a good lyricist could turn a song meant for a routine situation into a nice hummable song. It is sad that he and Anjaan would later be reduced to pen inane lyrics in future.

Here is this superb “party” song from a forgotten movie, which is the 100th song of Bappi Lahiri in the blog as a music director. With this, Bappi Lahiri becomes the 36th music director and 85th artist overall to notch a century of songs in the blog.

Blog Day : 3600 Post No. : 14368

Today (27 may 2018) is the 3600th day for the blog. I posted a light hearted song on the occasion. Now, here is a proper party song. 🙂

This song is from “Naseeb”(1981). “Naseeb”(1981) was an archtypical Manmohan Desai movie. It had Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, Rishi Kapoor, Kim Yashpal,Pran, Amjad Khan, Kader Khan, Amrish Puri, Prem Chopra, Shakti Kapoor etc in it.

It is amazing to realise that this movie had just six songs in it but they were sung by as many as eleven singers ! Rafi, Lata, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Usha Mangeshkar, Suman Kalyanpur, Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Anwar, Shhailendra Singh, Kamlesh Awasthi were the singers who lent their voices in these six songs.

Five songs from the movie have been covered in the past. Here are the details of these five songs :-

John Jaani Janardan 68 4-Sep-08
Zindagi imtihaan leti hai 2546 18-Jun-10
Chal mere bhai tere haath jodta hoon 10401 24-Oct-14

Theree is never a dull moment in a Manmohan Desai movie. There are many great HFM songs that are regarded as “better heard than watched”, but no Manmohan Desai song is likely to fall in that category. Manmohan Desai songs are almost always great treats to watch. These songs would tend to be long songs but audiences would still watch them spellbpound.

This song under discussion is no exception. Lilting Laxmikant Pyarelal prelude music begins while a cage descends on the banquet hall of the five star hotel. Hema Malini emerges out of a cage. This is somewhat (or rather delibetarely) reminiscent of Amitabh Bachchan emerging out of an easter egg in “Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977), another Manmohan Desai blockbuster. Amitabh Bachchan is very much present here in this song as well- and this time as a waiter in that five star hotel who tends to double up as a singer as well as is testified in the song John Jaani Janardan from this movie.

Amitabh Bachchan may be waiting on the guests, but he also manages to dance a step or two in between serving the guests. 🙂 He would get to do this some more in “Namak Halal”(1982) a few months later. 🙂

In these parties, one is bound to have a guest showing undue interest on the female singer. Prem Chopra is that errant guest here. Oldtimers may recall that Prem Chopra was lusting after Hema Malini since the days of “Raaja Jaani”(1972) and he even got Hema Malini to sing a song or two for him. For instance, this song Kitna mazaa aa raha hai(Raja Jani)(1972). 🙂

Prem Chopra has a message for Hema Malini (dance ke baad kamre mein milo) and he gets Amitabh Bachchan to act as the instant messenger. Amitabh Bachchan, as is his wont, hands his tray over to Prem Chopra and goes towards Hema Malini to deliver the message. Whether Hema Malini is scandalised by the contents of the message is something we never get to know because the song resumes as if nothing happened.

The song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The video of the song is over five minutes long. Still the video version has one stanza missing in it. The audio version of the song has all stanzas, but then this version has a few lesser lines (less repetition of lines) and the Amitabh Bachchan- Hema Malini dialogue is missing in the audio version.

The song is the title song and so it talks about “Naseeb” viz fate. Naseeb leads to coincidences which we already know even without Manmohan Desai telling us. This song as well as other songs of this movie too have some coincidences associated with them. This song, the sixth and final song from the movie appears on the 3600th day of the blog. The movie had another philosophical song in it, viz Zindagi imtihaan leti hai . And guess what ! That song was covered in the blog eight years ago on a day that happened to be the 700th day of the blog !

That is not all. The fifth and penultimate song from the movie, viz Pakdo pakdo pakdo jakdo jakdo jakdo was covered on the day when the final of Premier Kabaddi League was being played. Now, the sixth and final song from the movie is being covered on the day when the final of IPL is under progress as I type these lines. 🙂

So, without typing any more lines, here is this wonderful philosophical title song from “Naseeb”(1981) on the 3600th day of the blog.

With this song, all the songs of “Naseeb”(1981) are covered in the blog and “Naseeb”(1981) now joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Ganga Ki Saugandh”(1978) was produced and directed by Sultan Ahmad for Sultan Productions, Bombay. This movie , described as a “social” movie was a daaku-drama (as memsaab would describe it). The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha, Amjad Khan, Pran, Bindu, I S Johar, Jeevan, Farida Jalal, Iftekhar, Anwar Hussan, Jagdeep, Mukri, Satyen Kappu, Nana Palsikar, Mac Mohan, Achla Sachdev, Anju Mahendroo, Tabrez, Murad, Hercules, Keshav Rana, Dulari, Paro Devi, Reddy, Bismillah, Bishan Khanna, Nazir Kashmiri, Ghulam Hussain, Sandow, Tiwari, Kailash, Pardesi, Akbar Khan, Shetty, Sulochana, Fazlu, Gulam Sabir, Aziz, Rajni Gupta, Soni, Jani, Yogesh Chabra, Sanjana, Rishi, Amir Ali, Ramlal, Saleem, Babul etc in it.

“Ganga Ki Saugandh”(1978) had six songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are their details:-

I had a low opinion of the movie as well as its songs. But when I listened to the last two remaining songs of the movie, I realised that these two songs were sung and picturised superbly.

The previous song was covered yesterday. Here is the sixth and final song from “Ganga Ki Saugandh”(1978) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. Anjaan is the lyricist. music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a “teasing” or “nok jhonk” song on Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha. The lyricist Anjaan has done a superb job in penning the lyrics. The song is quite a catchy song. It was a popular song of its time. Curiously enough, the movie as well as the songs of the movie have ended up becoming “rare” by now. The movie as well as its songs were quite well known to those who lived through 1978 as a grown up/ growing up person.

With this song, “Ganga Ki Saugandh”(1978) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Ganga Ki Saugandh”(1978) had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha as an expression of love song. This song was quite a well known song of its time, and it is interesting to know that the present day music lovers who were not around in 1978 consider this song as a rare song. 🙂

The movie, as well as its songs were regarded as rather low brow stuff by me those days, vis a vis other Amitabh Bachchan movies and their music. Despite not being much impressed with the movie, I had watched it twice in a Ranchi cinema hall called “Ratan Talkies” which was located quite close to my college. 🙂

While I was familiar with the first couple of lines of the song, it is only now, while noting down the lyrics, I have realised what a nice job the lyricist has done in penning this entire song. The song is picturised quite wonderfully well as well.


Song-Roop jab aisa mila (Ganga Ki Saugandh)(1978) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

roop jab aisa mila
roop jab aisa mila
aisi ada kaise na ho
roop jab aisa mila
aisi ada kaise na ho
bhari bottle ho jawaani ki
bhari bottle ho jawaani ki
nasha kaise na ho
roop jab aisa mila
haaye haaye haaye

arre re teri julmi jawaani
chadhhi nadiya toofaani
arre re teri julmi jawaani
chadhhi nadiya toofaani
ude jab lat mukhde pe
ghata ho paani paani
dekh ke tujhko
julm dil pe bhala kaise na ho
haan julm kaise na ho
roop jab aisa mila
haaye haaye haaye

bagiya ki saari kaliyaan
kheton ki hariyaali
arre paanv taley bichh jaaye
jab chale yoon nakhre waali
hai mukh per subah ki laali
badan phulwa ki daali
hai mukh per subah ki laali
badan phulwa ki daali
bhara har rang mein jaadu
magar dil pyaar se khaali

aisa ho nakhra to phir piyara fida kaise na ho
haan fida kaise na ho
roop jab aisa mila
aisi ada kaise na ho
bhari bottle ho jawaani ki
haay
bhari bottle ho jawaani ki
nasha kaise na ho
roop jab aisa mila
haay haay haay

Details of the five songs that have already been covered in the past are given below:-

Here is the sixth and final song from “Bandhe Haath”(1973) to appear in the blog. The song is a stage dance performance song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

Picturisation shos that it is a “tribal” dance song. A “tribal” dance song in Hindi consists of skimpily dressed dancers, wearing strange outfits / masks etc that are vaguely of African or Red Indian origin.

The main female dancer is a skimpily clad Mumtaz who makes sure that the movie makers save money hiring a Helen or Padma Khanna for this dance sequence. She alongwith other similarly dressed females perform this dance in the presence of a housefull auditorium.

Whenever such performances take place in a Hindi movie, one can be rest assured that baddies would be swarming the place. This song is no exception. We find a galaxy of baddies, led by Ajit, Madan Puri etc marking their attendance. They are looking for Amitabh Bachchan, who like the baddies would invariably find himself in the vicinity of such a dance performance.

SAmitab Bachchan may be hiding in the outfit of a Sheikh, but he cannot escape from Ajit’s eagle eyes, who then passes on the intelligence to his minions as well as a policeman (Ram Mohan ?). What is the standard way in which our Hindi movie heroes try to hide from the baddies ? The join the dance performance. How an uninvited dancer can join in the performance and how the back stage organisers allow this to happen is something that we will never know. And how the hero is aware of the lyrics as well as the corrrect dance steps for the dance is also something that is a mystery to all. This supposedly disguised hero then lip syncs and dances loudly and quite prominently which is their standard attempt to hide from the baddies. :).

That is not all, we find another disguised dancer (O P Ralhan ?) joining in, no doubt easily dodging the back stage managers to the performance, and he too starts to sing and dance loudly. In his part of the song and dance, he “discreetly” passes on the information that baddies are in hot pursuit of him.

It all sounds quite silly really, but we are so used to such dance performances that we do not bat out eyelids. 🙂

“Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989) was produced by Habib Nadiadwala and directed by Tinnu Anand. The movie was an adaptation of Frank Capra’s “Meet John Doe”(1941). Amitabh Bachcahn played the lead role in the movie.

While “Meet John Doe”(1941) was a superhit movie, its Hindi adaptation failed miserably at the box office. “Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989), like its Hollywood original, showed the hero as a common man, helpless against system. Indian audience, brought up on staple diet of escapist movies were not mature enough to appreciate movies that were off the beaten track. People expected Amitabh Bachchan to play his usual larger than life superman like character, but the movie depicted him as an ordinary man, as powerless and helpless as most ordinary men, and movie goers were not prepared for that. While “Meet John Doe”(1941) was a superhit movie, its Hindi adaptation failed miserably at the box office. So it showed, if any proof was needed that Indian audience of 1989 had not reached the maturity of Hollywood audience of 1941 !

Personally I quite liked the movie, but I was in a minority. Most other people had expected to see Amitabh Bachchan as an angry young man of “Trishul” or “Andha Kaanoon” and they felt let down with the non escapist fare that this movie served.

“Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989) had just one song in it.

Here is that sole song from “Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989). This song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and chorus, in addition to some unidentified voices. The song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and it is picturised on himself. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Amar Utpal.

Since it is the only song from the movie, this song serves dual purpose simultaneously. This song is the debutant song as well as a YIPPEE song. So one can say, rather pompously that “Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989), makes its debut in the blog with this song and get YIPPEED as well. 🙂
