11/10/2020 – 78th Birthday of Amitabh Bachchan
———————————————————————-

A few days ago I saw this whatapp forward video, where a few Africans were singing this hindi song “rote rote hansnaa seekho hanste hanste rona”. This song is a known song, often heard on radio, but not recently seen or heard.

I knew it was a song sung on screen by Amitabh Bachchan. I checked the blog, to find it was not posted. This is a well-known song from 1983 film “Andhaa Kanoon”, where Amitabh Bachchan’s role was supposedly a guest appearance. Getting the lyrics of this song was a breeze, as I knew the lyrics and lines of stanza’s.

This song is a multiple version song with Kishore Kumar happy version, Kishore Kumar sad version and Baby Rajeshwari sad version. I was not able to find the audio/video of sad version by Baby Rejeshwari. Music and lyrics are Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi, respectively.

Trivia about the film:

1.This film was a remake of the hit Tamil movie “Sattam Oru Iruttarai” (1981) starring Vijayakanth. The Tamil film was also remade in Telugu as “Chattaniki Kallu Levu” (1981), in Malayalam as “Maattuvin Chattangale” (1982) and in Kannada as “Nyaya Ellide” (1982). It was also remade in Tamil with the same title in 2012.

2.Rajinikanth made his Hindi film debut in this film.

3.The villains in this film, played by Prem Chopra, Danny Denzongpa and Pran, were named Amar, Akbar and Anthony after the film “Amar Akbar Anthony” (1977).

4.Amitabh Bachchan’s character in this film was named after the poet and lyricist Jan Nisar Akhtar.

5.Amitabh Bachchan had signed this film for a guest appearance. However, as the film’s shooting progressed his role was increased till it became an important supporting role.

Songs already posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Ye andhaa kaanoon hai 11 October 2010
Meri behna deewaani hai 13 August 2011

That’s a typical of Amitabh Bachchan guest appearance where he is getting to sing the title song as well as a multipurpose song. It is not clear why his character in the movie was named after Jan Nisar Akhtar.

There are many names to given to Amitabh, like Big B, Shehenshah, Angry young man and star of the millennium. Big B would be the based on this stature of being a superlative performer and his authoritative voice plus the physical presence of screen. Shehenshah, is the title of 1988 film directed by Tinnu Anand, whose story is credited to Jaya Bachchan. The angry young man was the creation of Saim-Javed duo of script writers. Star of the millennium is a bit tricky, as millennium is period of thousand years. So starting in 1969, he has less than 30 odd years of stardom in the millennia of 1000-2000 and next millennia is now 20 years old. So technically this superstar is riding in a millennia to the next. Not that it matters to me as such, but things like titles also need to be logical. However unfashionable it might be.

Amitabh Bachchan is singing this song to stop his daughter from crying. His wife is played by Madhavi, who is also present in the song. Judging from the sad version, tragedy strikes the happy family, so this song is likely in flashback.

Hullo Atuldom

“Saudaagar” released on 26th october 1973, that means it is 15-days short of 47 years ago. The movie had Nutan paired with Amitabh Bachchan (he was yet to taste success, when he signed up for the movie). He played a ‘Gur’ trader who made a living out of ‘gur’ made from Date-syrup by Mahzubeen -a widow played by Nutan. He meets Phoolbanu (Padma Khanna), likes her, and approaches her father with a marriage proposal. Phoolbanu’s father (Murad) asks for ‘Mehar’ which Moti (AB) does not have. So he proposes marriage to Mahzubeen, so that he doesn’t have to pay her for the ‘gur-making’ and save up for the mehar by the end of the ‘gur-season’. At the end of the season he divorces Mahzubeen and again approaches Phoolbanu’s father who is satisfied with the mehar and Moti marries Phoolbanu. But he faces a problem when the ‘gur’ as the product made by Phoolbanu is not on the same level as the previous season and Moti loses customers and business. He is forced to seek out Mahzubeen who has by the married a widower who is honest to her that he wants a mother for his children. Moti requests her to make a few “vats of gur’ she is at first upset at him for the way he had treated her. She relents on seeing Phoolbanu and Moti’s pitiable condition. The movie ends with the two ladies meeting each other affectionately signifying that Mahzubeen had forgiven Moti’s selfishness for the sake of his family.

“Saudaagar” was directed by Sudhendu Roy who was a art director, production designer who later on became a director with Rajshri Production’s “Uphaar” (1971). He was associated with Bimal Roy from 1958/9 in movies like “Madhumati” “Sujata” etc and was active in Bollywood till 1999. His work could be seen in Subhash Ghai’s “Karz” Karma” etc, Yash Chopra’s “Silsila” “Chandni” etc and right on till “Vijeta” (1996; not to be confused with the movie produced by Shashi Kapoor). His youngest daughter Sharmishta has followed in her father’s footsteps.

Coming back to “Saudaagar”, it was based on the Bengali story “Ras” by Narendranath Mitra and was produced by Tarachand Barjatya’s Rajshri Pictures. Ravindra Jain was the writer and composer of its songs. If I am not wrong this was his first Hindi movie. He was born in Aligarh to a homemaker mother and Sanskrit pandit father. He was sent for training in music by his father who recognized his talent very early and he started singing bhajans at temples when he was young.

We have been entertained by his songs in Chor Machaye Shor, Geet Gata Chal and numerous other movies. In this post from “Saudaagar” Atulji has made an interesting observation:- Ravindra Jain made a mark for himself with songs sung by singers other that the legends who were active then. But of course he had Asha, Lata, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey singing a song each for him in this movie. Todays’ song is in Mohd Rafi’s vocals, a very soft song typical Rafi Magic.

This movie had seven songs of which 5 are there on the blog as under

Song Posted on
Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon 4 April 2009
Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye 15 april 2009
Tera mera saath rahe 17 april 2009
Door hai kinaara 18 april 2009
Champa nahin chameli nahin 4 april 2019

Another interesting thing about this movies journey on the blog is it made its debut in April of 2009. We had four songs from that movie in that month. And the next post from the movie happened after a ten year gap in 2019 under the Blog Ten Year Challenge.

Remembering Ravindra Jain today on his anniversary, it is five years since he left this mortal world, but he will be immortal because of his work.

Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 85
————————————————–

Atul ji has rightly mentioned in his post regarding BTYC posts coming up regularly, having taken precedence over other projects in the process. I think, on the other hand it is also helping bring movies bring closer to ‘Yippeeee’ and also helping movies getting noticed after an interval of couple or few years where the movies earlier were having some songs posted and took a back-seat thereafter without any reason.

In some cases where many movies made their debut ten years ago and were forgotten thereafter after getting only one song posted, the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ has been like a ‘boon’ for them. In turn it also gives a chance to readers to visit the songs of movie like these and recall their songs which were played then and also recall some fond memories if any.

Consider the case of one of the two movies due for ‘BTYC’ today – ‘Mahaan-1983’ which made its debut on the blog ten years back and so far, has only one song posted on the blog.

Let us have a look on the six songs posted on the blog ten years back on this day on
22.09.2010;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Raaton ki neend chheen lee aankhon ke intezaar ne Shokhiyaan-1951 All Songs covered

Mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main Aaj Aur Kal-1963 All Songs covered
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai Mahaan-1983 01 song posted

‘Mahaan-1983’ had some good songs like the one ‘Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai’ already posted on the blog and ‘pyaar mein dil pe maar de goli’ being the most popular song from the movie. ‘Ye din to aata hai ek din jawaani mein’ sung by Pancham and Asha Bhonsle was the other song frequently played and like then.

Music for ‘Mahaan-1983’ was composed by R.D. Burman.

I had not watched this movie then and have not watched it so far, so can’t say much about the movie.

When I noticed that this movie was due for BTYC today I went through its songs and I have selected one other song (which required more time from me to complete the ‘baat’:) ), but then noticed this lesser heard (I don’t remember to have heard this song earlier) song sung by Kishore Kumar and have selected this song for today’s presentation.

The song is lip-synced on screen by Amitabh Bachchan and also seen in picturization of the song is Zeenat Aman and also seen is a Puppet (of Ramdas Padhye the famous ventriloquist, I guess I am correct) with them.

‘Mahaan-1983’ had total seven songs in it all written by Anjaan and composed by R.D. Burman.

So far, only one song from ‘Mahaan-1983’ have been posted on the blog;

Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai 22.09.2010

I am not giving details about the movie and other songs too, and holding them for a detailed post with other song of the movie to be presented in the future on the blog.

(Unlike the song which finishes ‘aadhi baat’ I am not completing my ‘baat’ here)

Let us now enjoy today’s song from this movie. 🙂

(Lyrics noted are as per audio link which has three stanzas whereas the video link doesn’t have the second stanza as given in the audio link.)

Blog Day :

Hullo Atuldom

Happy Gokulashtami to all followers of this blog.

Yesterday we had a song which should have been categorised under “How come this has not been posted as yet?” The song with this post can also fall under the same category.
It is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar, written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Rajesh Roshan is the music composer. It is from the 1982 Ravi Tandon directed “Khuddar”.

This song depicts the ‘dahi-handi’ aspect of Gokulashtami. ‘Dahi-Handi’ draws inspiration from the antics of Lord Krishna or Balgopal who was rather mischievous and used to stealthily enter homes in Gokul and eat up freshly churned Dahi (curds or yogurt in modern parlance) and Makhan (butter). That is why one of his names is Maakhanchor. There is a lot of stories attached with the ‘leela’ of Balkrishna:- how the ladies of Gokul go complaining to Yashoda maa about Balkrishna eating away their dahi and makhan and how he used to say “Maiyya mori main nahin maakhan khaayo”. We have three versions of this song from movies made in 1959, 1977, and the version whose link I have given here was the first ever that came in 1942.

“Mach gayaa shor saari nagari” has Amitabh Bachchan making the human-pyramid and Parveen Babi in typical Maharastrian attire is out there either distracting him or encouraging him (don’t remember). We can see Vinod Mehra, A K Hangal enjoying the proceedings from the verandah of their chawl. Madhu Malini (permanent sister in many movies) walks in halfway through the song.


Song-Mach gaya shor saari nagri re (Khuddaar)(1982) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Rajesh Roshan
Chorus

Lyrics

mach gaya shor saari nagri re
saari nagri re
aaya Biraj ka banka sambhaal teri gagri re
ho oo aaya Biraj ka banka sambhaal teri gagri re
arre mach gaya shor saari nagri re,
saari nagri re
aaya Biraj ka banka sambhaal teri gagri re
ho oo aaya Biraj ka banka sambhaal teri gagri re

dekho arre dekho kahin aisa na ho jaaye
chori kare maakhan,
tera jiya bhi churaaye
dekho arre dekho kahin aisa na ho jaaye
chori kare maakhan,
tera jiya bhi churaaye
arre dhamkata hai
itna tu kisko
darta hai kaun aane de usko
darta hai kaun aane de usko

aise na bahut bolo
mat thumak-thumak dolo
chillaogi tab gori
jab ulat dega tori
gagri aake peechhe dagri re
arre mach gaya shor saari nagri re,
saari nagri re
aaya Biraj ka banka sambhaal teri gagri re

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 40
——————————————————————————

Ten years back on 06.07.2010 three songs from three movies were represented on the blog:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Gori hain kalaayiyaan tu lade mujhe hari hari choodiyaan Aaj Ka Arjun-1990 02 songs posted
Sajna mera dil tera dil gayaa mil Jhoola-1962 All songs covered
Piyaa piyaa naa laage moraa jiyaa Phagun-1958 All songs covered

Two movies ‘Jhoola-1962’ and ‘Phagun-1958’ have already been YIPPEED, so we have only one movie viz. ‘Aaj Ka Arjun-1990’ which is eligible for ‘blog ten-year challenge’ today (6 july 2020).

I remember that I was staying at Kota (Rajasthan) when this movie ‘Aaj Ka Arjun’ was released. Two of its songs had become very much popular. The song ‘chali aana tu paan ki dukaan pe’ was played on cassette-recorder in every ‘paan-shop’ in the ‘gali’ and ‘nukkad’ 😊 while the other song ‘gori hain kalaayiyaan’ was also played and could be heard everywhere (specially in Rajasthan).

Befittingly these two songs have already been covered on the blog. It proves that the same two songs were considered the most popular by the editor of the blog as well. 🙂

Song Posted On
Chali aana tu paan ki dukaan pe saadhe teen baje 26.05.2009
Gori hain kalaayiyaan tu lade mujhe hari hari choodiyaan 06.07.2010

I had never watched this movie (for me it was a ‘No Amitabh movie’ years those days), so when our Prakash ji sent the lyrics of the today’s song, I had no recollections of having listening to this song. Other than the above mentioned two songs of this movie I was not aware of remember any other songs of this movie. However, when I listened to today’s song, I liked it. I may have heard this song in the past but the song may have failed to register with me in the past.

This song is in two versions- one is sung by Amit Kumar and the other by Lata Mangeshkar.

“Aaj Ka Arjun-1990” was directed by K.C. Bokadia for BMB Productions. K.C. Bokadia was also the producer of this movie. It had Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Prada, Radhika, Suresh Oberoi, Kiran Kumar and Amrish Puri. The movie introduced Rishabh Shukla on the big screen.

Asrani and Anupam Kher make special appearance in this movie. The above cast was supported by Preeti Sapru, Baby Guddu, Bramhachari, Praveen Kumar, Anirudh Agarwal, Junior Mehmood, Ram Kumar and Vikas Anand.

Story of this movie was written by P. Vasu and screenplay was written by Santosh Saroj. Dialogues of this movie were written by Anirudh Tiwari. Saroj Khan and Chinni Prakash were the choreographers for this movie. Editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Alka Yagnik, Shabbir Kumar, Mohd Aziz and Amit Kumar had given their voices to the songs in this movie. Anjaan was the lyricist for the songs in this movie and music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 03.08.1990.

Let us now listen to today’s multiple version song. It is sung by Amit Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. Lyrics are by Anjaan and music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day: 4270 Post No.: 15499

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 14
——————————————————————————

In my personal opinion, “Namak Halaal”(1982) is one movie that had come at a critical juncture in the history of HFM and also in my personal life as well. 1982 was a time when the golden era of HFM was over. Songs and also movies were plainly becoming ridiculously rubbish. This was my personal opinion and many others shared this view.

But common people, what is often described as the LCD (Lowest common denominator) could not care less. This section of moviegoers, who are not much into thinngs like class, taste etc and are more into instant gratification loved whatever was being dished at that time.

And what was that ? That was disco. Most of them mindless, brainless kind of it. Standard formula of those days was to fill the movie with a few loud disco music where lyrics did not matter much. The lyricist only had to fit in a few arbitrary words including the word Disco, and the lyrics was done. Music director had an easier time. They only had to lift tunes of disco music from west. This lifting was shameless and blatant, without giving any credit to the original composer , and obviously without buying its rights.

The person who was almost singlehandedly responsible for this rot was Bappi Lahiri.

But Bappi Lahiri was not always like that. He started his career in mid 1970s and created some veryfine compositions. His music was so catchy that I often mistook his composition for R D Burman compositions, which is real high praise for a music director. It was he who composed such catchy and often iconic songs such as Chalte chalte mere ye geet yaad rakhna(Chalte Chalte)(1976), Aali re aali re Holi(Zakhmee)(1975), Pyaar maanga hai tumhi se(College Girl)(1978), Maana ho tum behad haseen (Toote Khilone) , Haan pahli baar ik ladki mera haath pakadkar (Aur Kaun), Hamse nazar to milaao (Ikraar), Tumhaaraa pyaar chaahiye mujhe jeene ke liye (Manokaamna) etc.

The problem with these tunes was that most of these tunes were class but these movies and its songs often went unnoticed. As a result, Bappi Lahiri’s career was going nowhere. So he finally decided that “to hell with class. I will compose music that sells.” So he started creating plagiarised disco songs. These songs were so popular that the entire music industy was forced to copy his disco music. And that sounded the death knell for the golden era of HFM.

Ironically, Bappi Lahiri kept producing some classy compositions even during the post Goolden era. My simple observation is that he did so when he used golden era singers in movies of golden era directors. On rest of the occasions, when mediocre producers and directors along with mediocre starcast was used, Bappi Lahiri would produce mediocre plagiarised music, and he would insist on giving playback for the hero in such movies.

“Namak Halaal”(1982) was directed by a golden era director namely Prakash Mehra. This movie, which was produced by Satyendra Pal for Chaudhary Enterprises, Bombay was a A grade movie with top stars of the day. Amitabh Bachchan was the hero. Others in the movie were Waheeda Rehman, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Smita Patil, Satyen Kappu, Ashalata, Harish, Chandrashekhar, Dev Kumar, R S Chopra, Tuntun, Asha Chandra, Aazaad, Bob Cristo, Viju Khote, Jinder Walia, Nandita Thakur, Ram Sethi, Ranjeet Sood, Om Prakash, Ranjeet etc, with special appearances by Suresh Oberoi and Kamal Kapoor.

I had watched this movie by bunking my college (so what is new 🙂 ). Being a movie goer of high standards, I did not like the movie much. Having watched the movie, I went to the college the next day in what was the college recreation room which has facilities for indoor games like carrom board, TT etc. Some sports magazines were also available there.

There a few staff were playing carrom. While playing it, one of the staff, who had watched the movie, animatedly described the movie in glowing terms to his colleagues, leaving others suitably impressed and overwhelmed. He certainly made them eager to watch the song. I was listening to the discussion and I too got inflenced and realised that the movie was not all that bad that I had thought. This movie indeed was fun to watch. subsequently, I have watched parts of this movie and realised that this movie has some parts that have become all time classic scenes. For instance, there is this scene where hotel manager (played by Ranjeet) asks hairon Singh (played by Amitabh Bachchan) if he can speak English. The scene that follows can amuse movie goers even today. It is this movie that gave us a classic dialogue- “Moochhen ho to Nathhulal jaisi warna na hon.”

The movie had five songs in it. These songs had the golden era singers in it. Kishore Kumar sang for Amitabh Bachchan and his singing made all the difference. No one else could have sung these songs with so much energy, verve and midas touch. And the picturisation of these songs were fantastic. There are cases when poor picturisation destroys the effect of a great song. But that is not the case in this movie. all the songs have been picturised superbly. watching the picturisation of these songs is a highly entertaining and fulfilling experience.

Four of these songs have been covere in the past. Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Pag ghunghroo baandh Meera naachi thi 143 11-Oct-2008
2 Jawaan jaaneman haseen dilruba 2364 27-Mar-2010
3 Raat baaqi baat baaqi 8622 1-Sep-2013
4 Thhodi si jo pee li hai 14951 23-Mar-2019

One can see that the previous song from the movie was covered more that one year ago. After covering that song, I had become aware that only one song from the movie remained. But this song was such a song that it deserved a befitting writeup, and that required time. And I for some reason or the other was not able to find time for a writeup.

So I kept dilly dallying and things kept getting delayed. Finally a time came when I was informed that “Namak Halaal”(1982) becomes eligible for the blog ten year challenge. I informed other potential writers- “Dont dare touch it. It is my song.” 🙂

So here I am, finally forced to bring thing song onboard in the blog.

This song “aaj rapat jaaye to hamen na uthhaiyo” is a rain song extraordinaire. And it becomes so because it had been sung with gusto by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is difficult to think of any other singers who could have sung this song with this much aplomb.

The song was picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil as a rain song. In rain songs, the actors , especially the lady gets dangerously wet. This song is one of the most dangerously wet sari song of them all. We are aware of several occasions when censors have ordered that songs be deleted because they found the picturisation as objectionable. Some examples being Balmaa khuli hawaa mein (Kashmir Ki Kali) and Jaata kahaan hai deewaane sab kuchh yahaan hai sanam (CID). Censors found the depiction of the female character objectionable in these songs. So these songs were deleted from the movie. Only their audio remain. and I need not tell you how popular these songs are.

When I posted the previous song from the movie, which was Thhodi si jo pee li hai , and which happened to be posted on 3900th day of the blog, our beloved Khyati jee censured me as well as Sudhir jee.

Congratulations Atulji and team on reaching this milestone.
I am thinking what kind of spell ASAD is under recently? Aap nashe waali baat kar rahe ho, seedhe shaade Sudhurbhai pichkaari maarne ki baat kar rahe hai… Just concerned or rather worried. 😉
Regards
Khyati

My comment was:

Agla jo gaana bacha hua hai is movie ka, that will increase your anxiety about us even more. That song is- aaj rapat jaaye. 🙂 🙂

Khyati jee commented

That song should be played/posted behind the curtain. Bachhon pe bura asar padega. 😉

The picturisation of this song is indeed like that. Fortunately Indian censors had become more liberal since the days of 1950s and 1960s and this song passed muster with the censors. The fact that this movie was directed by a heavyweight diirector and starred the biggest star of the day, who also had strong political connections must have certainly helped.

So, here is this song, the fifth and final song from “Namak Halaal”(1982). as part of blog ten year challenge. With this song, all the songs of “Namak Halaal”(1982) have been covered and this movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Today’s song is from film 102 Not Out-2018.

Readers who identify me as a writer on old films, may be shocked, as I am about to write on a New Era song, as new as not even 1 year old ! But honestly, when I accidentally bumped into this song’s credit, which said that Amitabh Bachhan was the Music Composer of this song, I was myself surprised. Out of curiosity, I found out that song on You Tube and heard/saw it. Frankly, I was not only impressed but even I liked the song. Of course, much of the liking came from seeing the wonderful video of the song- which is just superb !

Amitabh Bachhan (AB for short please) is my favourite actor. I have been seeing many films since late 40s up to the end of the year 1963 – when I began my career in Pharma Marketing. In the beginning of 1971, I heard about film Anand-71, whose songs had already mesmerised me. I went to see the film. More than Rajesh Khanna, I was bowled over by the acting of the lanky New comer (it was AB’s just 7th film) – Amitabh Bachhan. Next I saw him when I was travelling in Goa, where I saw his film Bombay to Goa-72. This was a remake of Tamil film ” Madras to Pondecherry”-66. (Remakes were made in Marathi and Kannada also.) By now, AB had taken over my senses completely and I started seeing his films-but selectively.

Zanjeer-73 (15th film) made him a star. I enjoyed his films like Sholay-75, Deewar-75, Chupke Chupke-75, Amar Akbar and Anthony-77, Trishul-78, Don-78, Satte pe Satta-82 and Coolie-83. In early 80s, I stopped seeing films in Theatres or on TV, due to my job. After that till today, I have not visited a Theatre. I do not know how a Multiplex looks like from inside. I am not proud of this, but it underlines a fact that I had lost interest in seeing the New age films and that I had low level patience. Sometimes I saw films on VCP and later Video player. The last film of Amitabh I saw was Baadbaan-2003. My most favourite film of Amitabh is Trishul-78. I had even bought its Video cassette that time.

Amitabh Harivansh Bachchan, best known as Amitabh Bachchan, was born in Allahabad, India on October 11, 1942. India was still a British colony at the time, and would not achieve independence until five years later. Bachchan’s father was the renowned Hindi poet Dr. Harivansh Rai. His mother, Teji Bachchan, was a Sikh socialite. He has one younger brother, named Ajitabh.

Bachchan went to Sherwood College boarding school before enrolling in Delhi University, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree. Once he graduated, he became a freight broker in Calcutta. After a few years in Calcutta, Bachchan was ready for a change. He decided to move to Bombay and take a stab at Bollywood show business. By this time, India had been independent for nearly two decades, and Hindi cinema was thriving.

In 1969, Bachchan made his film debut in Saat Hindustani. Although the movie tanked at the box office, Bachchan still managed to capture the attention of directors. Soon enough, the offers started rolling in.

By the early 1970s, Bachchan had garnered popularity with audiences as the “angry young man” in a series of successful Hindi feature films. His starring role in Zanjeer was particularly instrumental in launching him to stardom as an action-movie hero. Bachchan’s performances in films like Laawaris, Coolie, Naseeb, Silsila, Shaarabi and Jaadugar continued to enamor fans of the tall and handsome action hero, and also landed him multiple Fanfare Awards. From the 1970s through the early 1980s, the swashbuckling Bachchan appeared in more than 100 films. He seized opportunities to work with India’s most acclaimed directors, such as Prakash Mehra, and dominated the silver screen with films like Trishul, Sholay and Chashme Buddoor. In addition to acting, Bachchan’s roles often required him to sing.

In 1982, Bachchan had a serious accident while filming. Fans prayed for his recovery. Bachchan survived the accident, but it prompted him to change career paths. In 1984, he traded his Bollywood stardom for a seat in the Indian Parliament. His political aspirations proved to be short-lived; in 1987, he left his seat due to unexpected controversy.

By the 1990s, the limelight surrounding Bachchan had begun to fade. But his decision to start his own entertainment production company, Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited, and make himself CEO, put him back in the headlines. Bachchan followed his true calling and returned to the silver screen in 1997 with the film Mrityudaata, produced by ABCL. In 2000, he also started hosting the Indian version of the television game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. Despite a few box-office failures in the 1990s, in the 2000s, Bachchan climbed his way back up to stardom as a film actor, earning additional Filmfare and International Film Award nominations for his work on films like Baghban (2003), Khakee (2004) and Paa (2009).

Bachchan married movie actress Jaya Bhaduri in 1973. The couple have two children, a daughter and a son. Their daughter, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, is married to industrialist Nikhil Nanda, whose grandfather was the film director Raj Kapoor. Bachchan and Bhaduri’s son, Abhishek Bachchan, is also an actor and is married to actress Aishwarya Rai.

In addition to being a father and an actor, Bachchan devotes his time to charitable causes. In 2003 he was appointed a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). He has won several awards and recently the Dadasaheb Phalke award too. (biography.com).

In my recent post, I had done the analysis of Ashok Kumar’s work pattern. In that article, I had said that may be AB would overtake Ashok kumar’s statistics and the pattern. This was because both of them had a long career period – 61 years for AK and 50 years for AB, and both commanded market demand in their old age, long after their prime times in films. Today, let us see how AB fares….

Period Aproximate age Number of films done
1969-70 27-28 2 First film- Saat Hindustani-69
1971-80 29-38 62
1981-90 39-48 43
1991-2000 49-58 20
2001-2010 59-68 58
2011-2019 69-77 47

From 1981 to 2000 (20 years) he acted only in 63 films. In 1982 he met with a serious accident during shooting of Coolie film. Then in 1984, he joined Politics and became an M.P., He quit politics in 1987 and rejoined films. But by 1990, his limelight started fading and films were hard to come by. He formed his own company Amitaqbh Bachhan Corporation Limited (ABCL). In the year 2000, his fortune took a turn. He was selected to conduct a game show on TV- Kaun Banega Karodpati. This proved to be an extraordinary successful venture and his popularity soared. This also reflected in his films From 20 films in the decade of 1991 to 2000, he shot to 58 films in 2001 to 2010 period.

He remains one of the most respected actor in the film industry and is in full demand for films. AB has so far acted in 232 films. He has sung 64 songs in 44 films – though none of his songs have become a craze or popular. His first song came in film Kabhie Kabhie-76 and latest song is for film Badla-2019. I feel his golden period was when he worked with Manmohan Desai, Prakash Mehra and Hrishikesh Mukherjee. He was also benefited when he worked with 15 Screenplays and stories by Salim-Javed. it would have been 17 films, but he refused Hasth ki safai-74 and Mr.India-87 – both films were Box office Hits. Another thing. I read on Internet about his 1969 film ” Ek tha Chander, Ek thi Sudha ” starring AB, Jaya and Rekha. Was there any such film ? If anybody knows anything, please let me know. There is no mention of this film anywhere else.

Today morning (19th), I read in news that AB was admitted in Nanavati Hospital since 15th October for a Liver problem. Luckily, while I am typing this post,I learnt that he has been discharged in the morning only. I wish him good health and like this film’s title let him be 102 Not Out !!!

The film was directed by Umesh Shukla. It was based on a Gujarati story by Soumya Joshi. His next 3 films are ready for release in 2020 – Gulabo-Sitabo, Chehre and Bramhastra. This film had 6 songs. 3 were composed by Salim Suleimani, 1 each was composed by Amitabh Bachhan, Hiralal Bramhabhatt and Rohan Vinayak. The lyrics were by Amitabh Bhattacharya, who has written 308 songs in 82 films. He sang 31 songs in 18 films also. The film was released on 4-5-2018 and earned Rs 102 crores for an investment of Rs. 35 crores only. The story of the film, as per wiki, is….

Dattatraya Vakharia (Amitabh Bachchan) is a 102-year-old who enjoys life in jovial ways. Babulal Vakharia (Rishi Kapoor), his 76-year-old son, is the opposite, and believes that he is now too old to enjoy life, and detests how his father acts. Dhiru (Jimit Trivedi) is an employee at a medical shop who delivers medicine to the Vakharias. Dhiru likes Dattatraya for his attitude and is scared of Babulal because of his grumpy nature.

Dattatraya seeks to break the record of the oldest living person. and thus he seeks to avoid negative people. Therefore, he threatens to send his son to a elderly care facility unless he achieves certain conditions. While Babulal is hesitant, he accepts with Dhiru as a witness. Firstly, Babulal writes a love letter to his deceased wife. Next, he accuses his doctor of being a thief so that he stops going to the clinic daily for a checkup. While rejecting to cut holes in his childhood blanket, Babulal visits a playground and a church that remind him of childhood memories. He becomes sorrowed and distributes cake to young children in the streets with his father.

Babulal begins to appreciate his father’s outlook on life. However, Babulal receives a call from his estranged son Amol informing Babulal that he will visit India. While Babulal is ecstatic hearing the news, Dattatraya is certain that Amol’s motive is to claim their property as their heir. So he gives Babu his last task: to kick Amol out of the house for all his negligence towards his family. They argue and Babulal stops talking to Dattatraya. Even Dhiru, for the first time, supports Babulal and feels that Amol should be given a chance. Dattatraya reveals that Babu had spent all his savings to educate Amol and send him to the United States. However, Amol ignored them, telling nothing about his new family life in America. Dattatraya also tells his son he has cancer, living happily so that Babulal can live like him.

Days later, Amol arrives in India, where Babulal humiliates him in public, calling him to return home. Dattatraya passes away at 102 years of age. Babulal finds a recording of his father predicting that the record of the oldest man will be broken by Babulal himself.

When you will see this video song,I am sure you too will like it. With this song, film 102 Not out and AB as a Music Director make a Debut on the Blog.

This song reiterates, what I always say,” Not all that was made before 70 was good,same as, Not all that is made after 70s is bad”. There is always some good everywhere !

The Dadasaheb Phalke Award is India’s highest award in cinema. It is presented annually at the National Film Awards ceremony by the Directorate of Film Festivals, an organisation set up by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. The recipient is honoured for their “outstanding contribution to the growth and development of Indian cinema” and is selected by a committee consisting of eminent personalities from the Indian film industry. The award comprises a Swarna Kamal (Golden Lotus) medallion, a shawl, and a cash prize of ?1,000,000 (US$14,000). Presented first in 1969, the award was introduced by the Government of India to commemorate Dadasaheb Phalke’s contribution to Indian cinema. Phalke (1870–1944), who is popularly known as and often regarded as “the father of Indian cinema”, was an Indian filmmaker who directed India’s first full-length feature film, Raja Harishchandra.

The first recipient of the award was actress Devika Rani, who was honoured at the 17th National Film Awards held in 1969. As of 2017, there have been 49 awardees. Among those, actor Prithviraj Kapoor (1971) and actor Vinod Khanna (2017) are the only posthumous recipients. Raj Kapoor accepted the award on behalf of his father Prithviraj Kapoor at the 19th National Film Awards in 1971 and was himself a recipient in 1987 at the 35th National Film Awards ceremony. Bommireddy Narasimha Reddy (1974) and Bommireddy Nagi Reddy (1986); Raj Kapoor (1987) and Shashi Kapoor (2014); Lata Mangeshkar (1989) and Asha Bhosle (2000) along with B. R. Chopra (1998) and Yash Chopra (2001) are the siblings who have won the award.

Note:- all of the above information I have extracted from Wikipedia and apologize for any wrong information therein.

October 11th 1942 was the date when Teji Bachchan- wife of Shri. Harivansh Rai Bachchan gave India the Shahenshah of Bollywood. He goes by the name Shri. Amitabh Bachchan. Anyone who has even the faintest knowledge about Indian movies -anywhere in the world- would have heard about this actor. He may have not been India’s first mega-superstar, that title will always be associated with Rajesh Khanna. The reason I have used the term Mega-Superstar for Rajesh Khanna is because Dilip Kumar- Dev Anand-Raj Kapoor were equally big stars of their generation and the trio were inspiration for the next set of actors like Manoj Kumar, Dharmendra, Rajendra Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Amitabh Bachchan etc. The popularity and fan-following that Rajesh Khanna achieved was much more than what the trio of the 50s and 60s may have experienced collectively. Amitabh Bachchan had a long journey to reach the level of popularity that was Rajesh Khanna’s; but even at the height of his superstardom one has never heard of girls writing letters to Amitabh with blood, or throwing themselves at his car or trying to commit suicide at the news of his marriage to Jaya Bhaduri etc.

What Amitabh experienced was a different kind of affection from his fans. There were people who prayed for his life in 1982 when he had an accident during the shoot of “Coolie”. There are accounts of people walking barefoot from far-flung places to the hospital where AB was admitted and battling for life after the accident; people offering prayers at various places of worship cutting across religious differences. AB has always thanked his fans for all the love they showered on him during that period. In fact, he always greets them on Sunday evenings (whenever he is in Mumbai i.e.) for which there is a huge crowd of fans waiting outside his Mumbai residence.

He may have been dubbed the angry-young-man in the early phase of his career but he was equally adept at emotional, romantic or comic roles. “Mahaan” (1983) had him in three roles where we had him as an emotional father/ husband, serious-faced inspector and comic stage artist. The turn of the century saw him change his style and take on a variety of roles and characters- strict father who will not accept his son marrying against his wishes (Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham), strict principal who wanted all his students to adhere to the ‘parampara’ ‘pratishtha’ etc laid down by the college (Mohabbatein), friendly-indulgent father to Akshay Kumar (“Ek Rishtaa: the bond of love” and “Waqt: the race against time”) etc. etc. etc. We saw him as a rustic near-bumbling cop in “Bunty Aur Babli”; aging teacher of a deaf-blind girl in “Black”; these successful experiments have seen him through 50 years in an industry which has many talented actors but no one has been given epithets like “Shahenshah of Bollywood”, “Big B” or “Star Of The Millennium”. He continues his reign over the hearts of his fans in spite of the next generation and the one after it giving movies that gross over 100 crores per film. He still gets author backed roles that befit his age and many-a-times is the central character of the story as in “Baghban” and “Baabul”. His detractors may feel that he is the most off-key (besura) singer (and I believe he agrees that he is mostly off-key) but the songs that he has sung (from the first full song “mere pass aao mere doston”) have been well received by his die-hard fans-yours truly included. 🙂

Coming back to the opening para of this post- here is the connection- Amitabh Bachchan is the recipient of this prestigious award for this year. He joins an august list of personalities who have had a major influence on the Indian film industry beginning from Devika Rani who is acknowledged as the first lady of Indian cinema.

This is the latest feather in AB’s cap in addition to the Padma awards – Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan; 4 National Awards for best actor and 15 Filmfare awards and numerous other awards from various national and international organisations.

Today he turns 77 and I am confused as to which is an appropriate song that should go with this post- I have a big collection to choose from- the blog has about 20 songs which have had Amitabh Bachchan in the recording room as a singer or uttering a few words with the main singer.

Today’s song is from the BR films produced 2006 release “Baabul”. It had AB play an indulgent and friendly father to Salman Khan and a loving father-in-law to Rani Mukherjee. The movie had a simple story of the loving father-in-law, fighting the opposition from his own wife and other family members, against his decision of getting his son’s widow remarried. The song comes at the fag end of the movie. It was on my list of songs under consideration for this post. What clinched the matter in its favour is that the song has two versions to it. The version in the movie is in the voice of Amitabh Bachchan and the album version is in Jagjit Singh’s voice. And only this morning I saw a message on our WhatsApp group that yesterday was Jagjit Singh’s anniversary.

So, we wish our Big B a long and healthy life and lots more years of entertaining us along with remembering Jagjit Singh and his smooth voice.

Song-Kehta hai baabul o meri bitiya (Baabul)(2006) Singer-Amitabh Bachchan/ Jagjit Singh, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Aadesh Srivastava

Lyrics

kehta hai baabul o meri bitiya
tu toh hai mere jigar ki chitthiya
kehta hai baabul o meri bitiya
tu toh hai mere jigar ki chitthiya
daakiya koyi jab aayega
tujhko churaa ke le jaayega
katega kaise lamha tere bina bata
jiyunga kaise tanha tere bina bata
katega kaise lamha tere bina bata aa aa
jiyuga kaise tanha tere bina bata

tu suhaagan rahe sang saajan rahe raat din
iss khushi ke liye har sitam main uthha loonga aa
tere jaane kaa gham mujhko hoga magar laadli
leke iss dard ko main sada muskuraaoonga
baabul toh dil se de raha duaa yahi
khushi ke saaye mein ho zindagi teri
baabul toh dil se de raha duaa yahi ee
khushi ke saaye mein ho zindagi teri

waqt ke saath zakhm yeh bhar jayega
pal guzar jayega tu meri baat maan le ae
yaadon ke aasre umr kat’ti nahin
hai haqeeqat yahi abb too jaan le ae ae
samundaron ka paani koyi naa pi saka
akela khaara jeevan koyi naa jee saka aa
samundaron ka paani koyi naa pi saka
akela khaara jeevan koyi naa jee saka

kehta hai baabul o meri bitiya
tu toh hai mere jigar ki chitthiya
daakiya koyi jab aayega
tujh ko churaa ke le jaayega
katega kaise lamha tere bina bata
jiyunga kaise tanha tere bina bata
katega kaise lamha tere bina bata
jiyunga kaise tanha tere bina bata

Blog Day : 4102 Post No. : 15251

Amitabh Bachhchan, the star of the Millennium, was born in the than Allahabad (which is the English name of city named Ilahbad in Urdu) on 11.10.1942. His given name is Inquilab Srivastava, as per Wikipedia. This is a surprise for me and surely for many people, as a never heard fact. Also has the distinction of acting as the hero in the film ‘Inquilab’ not named after him :-). His father did name him after the slogan of freedom movement “Inquilab Zindabad”. I have never heard of anyone named ‘inquilab’, but have a friend named ‘Kranti’ which is the same thing with change in language only.

So, on 11.10.2019, he is celebrating 77th birthday as the most celebrated star actor and film personality. The Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shree in 1984, the Padma Bhushan in 2001 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015 The Government of France honoured him with its highest civilian honour, “Knight of the Legion of Honour”, in 2007 for his exceptional career in the world of cinema and beyond. As per Wikipedia page again, he has won 15 filmfare awards, the most nominated actor with 41 nominations so far and still counting.

His achievements include 4 national awards and Dada Saheb Phalke award for “Lifetime Achievement”.

Luckily, I had the lyrics of this song from the film “Shaan” (1980) ready to present as the birthday celebration post. I said in my reply to Peevecie’s Mom’s comments on this post that BEST buses is a topic of another post. I had this song in mind, most of which is picturized on a BEST double decker bus. “BEST” was formerly Bombay Electricity Supply and Transport, now it is renamed as ‘Brihan Mumbai Electricity Supply and Transport”. My father has been saying this to us right from the beginning that though BEST’s face are the buses which have been the more reliable lifeline of Bombay since almost a century now, its main business and source of income is the electricity supply to the city areas.

If I have to write about the BEST than the story has to start with my father. It is in family folklore that my father had after completing engineering had the option of coming to Mumbai (than Bombay) or to go to Lucknow to join the Railways. This was in the early 60’s, and Bombay was a known place of people in the family, who used to visit it for business purposes also. Also my mother’s ‘Maternal uncle’ had studied in Grant Medical College in the 40’s and everyone was familiar with the city. There was a job in hand in Lucknow, which is an unknown place, nobody in the family had ever been and far away from Belgaum. The family was in favour of Bombay as my father’s sister was already staying here at Kalyan. The decision was left to my father’s youngest sister, who voted in favour of Bambai. So he came to Bombay and joined BEST as a “foreman” trainee. There is a lot more I want to write about my father’s journey (most of it is related to BEST), but will save it for another post. Sometimes I do wonder, if he had gone to Lucknow instead of coming to Mumbai, how different the things would have turned out. I envy the people who have spent their formative years in Lucknow(met a few in my working life), their diction of Urdu language. Some of them, though convent educated did speak a fluent form of spoken khari boli which is closer in diction and grammar to the Urdu that our teachers taught us, compared to my own, the so called Urdu medium product, with our typical bambaiyya dialect. More of the royal ‘aap’ and ‘hum’ in the conversations of people of my generations who spent years in Lucknow, or thereabouts, even as far as some northern cities of Madhya Pradesh.

Will go back to Amitabh Bachchan for now. The first movie I am aware of watching in the theatre is “Do aur do Paanch”, with a similar star cast of Amitabh, Shashi Kapoor and Parween Babi, similar to ‘Shaan’ I mean. Incidently both these films were released in the same year. But we all saw “Do aur do paanch” at Belgaum during summer vacations, whereas “Shaan” was seen in Mumbai. Thereafter, Amitabh Bachchan movies were seen regularly, with the whole family. The movies of before 1980 are all seen on TV, but the movies after 1980, including “Silsila”, “Kaalia”, “Namak Halaal”, ‘Naseeb”,”KhudgarzKhuddaar”, “bemisaal”, ‘Laawaris” etc. I remember watching in theatre.

My personal favorite Amitabh films are not the comic or multistarrers, but his solo films like ‘Zanjeer’, ‘Bemisaal”, ‘Kaalia”, “Abhimaan” ‘Anand’ etc. Among the films of the new millennia, I have seen a few, but missed most of them. He is without doubt the longest running superstar of the hindi film industry.

So here in this song there are four singers, Kishore Kumar for Amitabh Bachchan, Mohammed Rafi for Shashi Kapoor, Asha Bhosle for Parveen Babi and Usha Mangeshkar for Bindiya Goswami. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist and is composed by R. D. Burman.

The film is ‘Shaan’(1980), also mentioned in para 4 above.


Song-Jaanu meri jaan main tere qurbaan (Shaan)(1980) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman
