Hullo Atuldom

‘Indian Idol’ a program that is aired on a satellite television channel has episodes that have contestants sing songs that are topical or paying tribute to legends of yesteryears. So we have had episodes dedicated to Kalyanji-Anandji, Laxmikant-Pyarelal, Tanuja, Sharmila Tagore etc. I was super disappointed to have missed a few episodes- ones that celebrated Kishore Kumar, 75 years of Rajshri Productions etc. Thanks to Apps of the various channels we are able to see these episodes at will and the one episode I regretted missing is the one that was telecast on 5th November. It was a supremely surprising episode that featured Meenakshi Seshadri.

Yes, Meenakshi Seshadri is in the country currently and this must have been her first public appearance. She spoke of her life post marriage and how she didn’t regret giving up acting & the fame/grind associated with life in front of the camera. She spoke of how she is learning to cook and that itself was so cutely said that she came across as being totally humble. She still has looks that will make people fall in love with her all over again, after all these years.
Today she is turning a year older and let us wish her All the Best for her future endeavours. She is still continuing her dance and recitals, maybe that is the secret of her looking the way she currently does.

The song with this post is from “Shahanshah” (1988) which had music by Amar-Utpal & lyrics by Anand Bakshi. The song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle. It shows Meenakshi Seshadri performing in a dance form that is completely different from her forte’. She looks comfortable even in an ‘Item Number’.
In the run up to this post I revisited the only song posted, from “Shahanhshah” and discovered a vital piece of information in that post. Don’t know how I missed what is mentioned there- Amar-Utpal are the sons of the legendary Anil Biswas.

Happy Birthday Shashikala Seshadri popular as Meenakshi Seshadri.


Song-Gardish mein jab jaam aayenge (Shahanshah)(1988) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Amar Utpal

Hullo Atuldom

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The blog completes 14 years of its existence today (19 july 2008-19 july 2022).

Blog Day :

5114 Post No. : 17061

19 July is a special day for the blog. It was on this day in 2008 that the blog went online with its first post, namely Mile na phool to kaanton se dosti kar li . That was the only post of the day, befitting the name of the blog “Atul Song A Day”. Discussing one song daily was the original idea and the blog stuck to it for 40 days. after that, the blog began to cover more than one song daily. It became “Atul Many Songs A Day”. On some occasions, as many as 12 and even 13 songs were covered in one day. Some exasperated subscribers of the blog complained that they were song lovers, but not that hardcore song lovers that they could handle one song notification in their e mail almost every hour of the day. 🙂

Acronym of the Blog name is ASAD. Depending on the places where I was based during the last 14 years, the blog could be described as ASAD Jabalpuri, ASAD Nagpuri, ASAD Bilaspuri, Asad Barelvi (or ASAD Izatnagri) and ASAD Gorakhpuri. These do not sound right-do I hear some people say that ? Now the blog is finally ASAD Bhopali. 🙂 That sounds right. 🙂 After being posted in different places in different parts of India, I retired from service last june and settled at Bhopal. So the blog from now onwards is likely to be permanently ASAD Bhopali. 🙂

ASAD by the way stands for “Lion” in Arabic. Mind you, Lion, not Tiger. Another set of “Lion” are in news these days namely the lions of Sarnath. 🙂

19 July 2008 was a saturday and unknowingly, it was on this day that the month of Saawan began. That was quite befitting and fortuitous, seeing that “Saawan” is musicaly a very important season for Hindi movie songs. This season has inspired a very large number of songs in Hindi movies.

The blog, after being a song a day blog for the first 40 days of its existence began to cover lots and lots of songs, touching its pinnacle in 2012 when 2071 songs were covered at an average of 5.66 songs every day. But we have seen decline in blog strike rate since then. Only 547 song posts appeared in 2019, at an average of just 1.5 songs a day.

Posts appear in the blog almost every day, almost without fail. Today (19 July 2018) is the 5114th day for the blog. 223 out of these 5114 days (4.3%) have been DOT days (viz days when no posts appeared). The last DOT day for the blog was on 25 december 2019 (4177th day of the blog). So the blog is at present seing a long unbroken streak of 937 days when at least one song is being covered in the blog everyday.

Consistency of effort has seen the blog clock its 17000th song recently (on 12 June 2022). With time, the blog has added new dimensions to it. From a one man show,  it became an online collaboration of limkeminded music lovers coming from various parts of the country,  and some coming from abroad as well. It is very heartening to note that our core group of contributors reflect the unity in diversity that India reprsents. And quite remarkably, the two genders are represented almost equally.

The blog has become a very important part in the lives of many in ways that we are often unaware. For instance, there was this heartwarming post by a lady who mentioned that she played the song Jyoti kalash chhalke(Bhaabhi ki choodiyaan)(1961) every morning for herself as well as her young granddaughter. On several occasions, we have had comments from people who discovered some songs in the blog many decades after they had last heard the song. We also had comments in the blog from relatives of artists who have contributed in the fields of HFM. Our regulars too have had relatives who had contributed in this field.

The blog has helped us connect with each other online as well as offline. Regulars of this blog have had many get togethers as well as one on one meetings over the years. Personally I had the good fortune to meet a few of our regulars. These meetings were extremely memorable experiences that I cherish to this date. Some of these meetings have been covered in articles appearing in the blog. Other regulars have done the same.

In the articles that we have written, we have covered lots and lots of topics,  some of them not even related to music, but they are topics of common interest to most of us. For instance, we have discussed economy, sports, unsung heroes of India, pets, history, geography etc in the blog.

We can go on and on, but let us stop here and get back to our “main” issue of interest, namely music. On this happy occasion, when the blog has completed 14 years, we already had some upbeat songs in the blog. The song under discussion is one that is bound to cheer the audience up even more.

This song is from “Yaaraana”(1981). “Yaaraana”(1981) was produced by H A Nadiadwala and directed by Rakesh Kumar. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Neetu Singh, Tanuja, Amjad Khan, Kader Khan, Aruna Irani, Jeevan, Ranjeet, Bharat Bhushan, Viju Khote, Lalita Pawar, Ram Sethi etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it (including two multiple version songs). Six of these songs (including two multiple version songs) have been covered so far.

Here is this song from “Yaaraana”(1981). This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

This song is a stage dance song, a Disco dance song in fact, that was the flavour of those days. This is one of few songs from that era, which has stood the test of time and continues to remain popular to this day.

As part of Blog celebration, here is this great song from “Yaaraana”(1981) that is guaranteed to make the day of the music lovers.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose continued support and encouragement is the perpetual source of energy that is driving this musical bandwagon on and on. Hoping to reach many more musical destinations and milestones in the times to come.

Blog Day :

4833 Post No. : 16616

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.

It can be seen from the table of 2000 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 5 songs in 2 movies released in 2000.

One song sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 2000 has been covered in the blog. That song was from one of the two movies of 2000 where she got to sing songs. With that song, all the Lata songs of that one movie (viz one song) has been covered. That leaves us with one movie of 2000 that offers us Lata Mangeshkar sons for discusussion.

This movie is “Mohabbatein”(2000). This movie was produced by Yash Chopra and directed by Aditya Chopra for Yashraj Films, Mumbai. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Uday Chopra, Shamita Shetty,Jimmy Shergill, Priti Jhangiani, Jugal Hansraj, Kim Sharma, Archana Puran Singh, Anupam Kher, Raman Lamba, Ram Mohan, Helen, Saurabh Shukla, Amrish Puri, Shefali Shah, Prazan Dastur, Rushad Rana, Mehul Nisar, Geri Andrade,Navneet nishan, Priya Gill ,Manjit Kular,Harpal Singh Pali, Sitaram,Meghna Patel, Palash Dutta etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four songs from the movie had the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in them.

Here is a song from “Mohabbatein”(2000). This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Udit Narayan. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Jatin Lalit.

The song is picturised on Aishwarya Rai and Shahrukh Khan. The song has a second part too that gets played towards the end of the song, where others, including Amitabh Bachchan is also visible.

So this song can be considered as a two part song.

Lyrics of this song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, “Mohabbatein”(2000) makes its debut in the blog.

Blog Day :

4811 Post No. : 16580

In recent days the ‘Yippeeee’ activity has taken a backseat on the blog. The ‘Yippeeee’ project too has been slowed down, and it is almost one year now when our ‘Yippeeee Guru’ had appeared last giving his darshan to ‘Yippeeee members like me’. 😊

I wished we should be ‘Yippeeee’ing’ at least one movie in a week if not daily. The last Yippeeee moment on the blog was on 27th July’2021 when the final song of movie ‘Jai Santoshi Maa-1975’ got covered and the movie got YIPPEED.

There are quite a few movies waiting for their final song to be covered in the blog and thus getting admitted to the club of YIPPEED movies.

Today we induct one more movie to the hall of fame of YIPPEELAND. This movie is ‘Saudagar-1973’.

I had watched this movie years back on a TV channel. But until I had not watched this movie, I mainly associated this movie with its songs ‘Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon’ and ‘Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye’ . I think these two songs were the well-known songs from this movie. But after watching the movie I do like other couple of songs from this movie and mainly the ‘majhi song’ – ‘door hai kinaaraa’ which grows up on us as we listen to it more and more. I like the movie and story content and presentation too.

This movie debuted on the blog on 04.04.2009 with its first song Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon. After that within a gap of less than two weeks the second song of this movie was posted on the blog and this was ‘Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye’ which got posted on 15.04.2009.

One more known song from this movie i.e., Tera mera saath rahe followed the second song just after a gap of one day and this was posted on 17.04.2009. The fourth song of this movie followed the third song and was posted on next day i.e., on 18.04.2009. The fourth song posted on the blog was ‘Door hai kinaaraa, gehri nadi ki dhaaraa’.

After this fourth song the movie had to wait the next ten years when its fifth song was posted on the blog. This song was presented by Shri. Sudhir ji. He discussed the story and other details of this movie in his post. This fifth song was ‘champa nahin, chameli nahin, main genda nahin, gulaab nahin… main hoon phool baano’. I would request our readers to visit this post to read about the movie in detail. This song was posted in ‘Blog Ten Years Challenge’ on 04.04.2019. This was the fifth song from this movie posted on the blog.

The sixth song of this movie then appeared after a gap of more than a year and was posted on the blog on 09.10.2019. This song was ‘Husn hai ya koi qayaamat hai’. This song-post was presented by Peevesie’s Mom ji as tribute to the music director Ravindra Jain on his Remembrance Day. Peevesie’s Mom ji had also discussed about the story and other details of the movie in her post. I will not repeat them all again here.

Today’s song is the seventh and final song of this movie to be posted on the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Padma Khanna lip-syncs the song on the screen. Amitabh Bachchan is also seen in the picturization.

“Saudagar-1973” was a ‘Rajshri Pictures Pvt Ltd, Bombay’ ‘s presentation. It was directed by Sudhendu Roy. It had Nutan, Amitabh Bachchan, Padma Khanna, Trilok Kapoor, Murad, Dev Kishan, V. Gopal, C.S. Dubey, Pardesi, Narbada Shankar, Santosh Ghosh, Nadir, Rasraj, Paritosh Chaudhary, Ashok Mitra, Samar Roy, Jugnu, Chandu Ilaahabadi, Ramesh Verma, Shriram Shastri, Chaturvedi, Bihari, Leela Mishra, Paro, Habiba, Salma, Sitara, Suraiyya, Master Saka, Master Firdaus, Baby Shameena and many others.

This movie had seven songs. All songs of this movie were written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of ‘Saudagar-1973’ as mentioned in HFGK-Vol-V (1971-1980).

Song-Kyun laayo sainyya paan (Saudaagar)(1973) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

kyun laayo sainyyaa paan
mere honthh to yoonhi laal
kyun laayo sainyyaa paan
mere honthh to yoonhi laal
piya honthh hain tere kaale
le tu hi ye paan chabaa le
piya honthh hain tere kaale kaale
tu hi ye paan chabaa le
aur apni badhaa le shaan
mere honthh to yoonhi laal
kyun laayo sainyyaa paan
mere honthh to yoonhi laal

kaajar bindi
mahaavar mehendi
kangnaa jhumkaa saadi ee
sabse achchhi sabse mehengi
sainyyaa preet tumhaari ee
sabse achchhi sabse mehengi
sainyyaa preet tumhaari
kiya tan man tere hawaale
din din ye preet badhaa le
kudrat ne kiya ehsaan
mere honthh to yoonhi laal
kyun laayo sainyyaa paan
mere honthh to yoonhi laal

main to thhi aazaad pari
aakaash pe udne waali
tere indarjaal mein phans gayi
haaye main bholi bhaali
tere indarjaal mein phans gayi
haaye main bholi bhaali
toone aise dorey daale
dil sambhlaa nahin sambhaale ae
tu maan bhale naa maan
mere honthh to yoonhi laal
kyun laayo sainyyaa paan
mere honthh to yoonhi laal

jaan gayi main tere man ki
kyun tu paan khilaawe
honthhon ka ras paan ke ras mein
ghol ke peenaa chaahe ae
honthhon ka ras paan ke ras mein
ghol ke peenaa chaahe
tere pyaar ke dhang niraale
o albele matwaale
tu to hai badaa naadaan
mere honthh to yoonhi laal laal
kyun laayo sainyyaa paan
mere honthh to yoonhi laal
piya honthh hain tere kaale
le tu hi ye paan chabaa le
piya honthh hain tere kaale kaale

kyun laayo sainyyaa paan
mere honthh to yoonhi laal

Blog Day :

Hullo Atuldom

2015 was the first time I wrote a post for this celebrity’s birthday. I will not say that I am a huge fan of his but I definitely like is work. He is one of the many actors who are in the film industry due to the legendary Pransaab i.e. this celebrity is inspired by or may even be a fan of Pransaab and has enacted a variety of characters on-screen much like the legend Pransaab.

Today’s celebrity began by doing inconsequential roles from 1975 after arriving in MAYANAGARI Bombay from New Delhi where Kirorimal College was his Alma-mater and is also trained from Pune’s FTII. He may have been in blink-and-miss roles in some Dara Singh and Arjun Hingorani films before Sunil Dutt cast him in the role of an antagonist in his son’s (Sanjay Dutt) launch movie ‘Rocky’ and also the named him Shakti Kapoor, his birthname was Sunil Sikanderlal Kapoor. His next two big movies were Feroz Khan’s ‘Qurbani’ (1980) which released before ‘Rocky’ (1981) and Subhash Ghai’s ‘Hero’ (1983). 1983 also had him appear in Sridevi’s Bollywood debut ‘Himmatwala’. 1981 saw him in big and small roles in ‘Naseeb’, ‘Poonam’, ‘Kaatilon Ke kaatil’, ‘Wardaat’, ‘Dhanwaan”, ‘Aapas Ki Baat’ etc. But the standout or big films of his initial days are definitely ‘Rocky’, ‘Qurbani’, ‘Hero’ and ‘Himmatwala’. But even in that period we do recall him as Kadar Khan’s younger son in ‘Naseeb’, the free-loading Portuguese Captain Gomes in ‘Armaan’ (1981), the totla (lisping) Mangal in ‘Satte Pe Satta’ (1982), and then there were more.

Post ‘Himmatwala’ he was a permanent fixture in many South Indian productions which had him team up with Kadar Khan, Asrani and Aruna Irani in movies like ‘Mawaali'(1983), ‘Tohfa’ (1984), ‘Maqsad’ (1984) etc. He was seen in comic characters in ‘Chaalbaaz’ (1989), ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ (1994) etc. He is one of the few actors whose looks could pass him off as a ‘good guy’ before the main characters of the movie realise that he was up to ‘no-good’, he is and was extremely good-looking. He was a decent enough dancer too as we have witnessed in ‘Rocky’, ‘Hero’, ‘Dance Dance’ (alongside Mithun Chakraborty), ‘Inquilaab’ (alongside Amitabh Bachchan in a guest appearance), and all the ‘n’ number of Govinda movies of the early ’90s starting with ‘Raja Babu’ (1994).

The trigger for today’s song is a social media app. There is a group dedicated to (what else) Bollywood music where the host sets some theme and group members post song-links of the songs they remember, the only condition being that particular song should not have been already posted by another member. Bollywood music treasure-pot being what it is, many songs will be common on multiple themes, but that is allowed. The theme over the last two days was songs whose lyrics include words and phrases related to STARS ( तारा, तारे, सितारा, सितारे etc.) One member posted the song which I am presenting here, today. I was looking for the word related to ‘stars’ in the the song, through the song, considering it is one of my all-time loved song. So I asked the person who posted it: “where are the stars in the song?” And he replied “at the absolute beginning”. Silly me!!! forgot the start of the song itself!!Emoji
This song is an all-male chorus by Bhupinder, R D Burman, Sapan Chakravarthy, Gulshan Bawra and The Kishore Kumar. Except for Amitabh Bachchan lip syncing mostly to Kishore Kumar all other singers are used randomly for the various actors with RDB doing all the extra vocals and Gulshan Bawra doing the “Haaye”. It is written by Gulshan Bawra and tuned by R D Burman It is filmed on a set of characters who are called Ravi, Som, Mangal, Budh, Guru, Shukra and Shani (usually addressed in a modern way as Sunny). The characters are all brothers who are living by themselves on a large farm; if the story was set in any part of the US of A then it may have been called a Ranch. An elegant lady enters the life of these bachelors as their Bhabhi (eldest wife’s brother of course) and is shocked to see the condition that the brothers live in. She first transforms their Huliya (appearance), teaches them etiquette ands also how to be good and cordial to ladies. Promptly, all the younger brothers also find beautiful girls and cupid strikes. The result of cupid striking is today’s song. After writing all this do I need to name the movie ?

I shall simply add why I love Shakti Kapoor in this song:- he gives a different expression to each “Haay”. I have heard or read an anecdote by Sachin (Pilgaonkar who played Shani a.k.a Sunny in the movie) that the large jeep used in this song had its bonnet open and Paintal (played Budh sometimes addressed as Buddhu) nearly fell onto the bonnet as shown in the song. I will also identify the other brothers- Ravi was Amitabh Bachchan, Som was Sudhir, Guru was Kanwaljit Singh, and Shukra was Vikram Sahu (also credited as Vimal Sahu in some places, was son of yesteryear actor/producer/director Kishore Sahu).

Let us listen to this lively song and wish Shakti Kapoor on his birthday.

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 6

Remembering Mohammed Rafi Sahab on his 41st remembrance day :

Writing a post of a song by Mohammed Rafi Sahab is almost a second nature thing for me. I have not counted but nearly 50 % on my post must be of his songs, the exalted one, who was especially blessed by the Almighty with a life, spend smiling and spreading smiles as far as I know. Some people do want to remember him by the sad songs which he sang with equal spirit, giving them his all, that the song, situation and composition demanded, the same as he did for other songs. I found this photo, and see who has the widest smile of them all: <a href=”https://in.pinterest.com/pin/46724914867514223/&#8221; this and this this .

There are platitudes and eulogies and tributes paid in honour of celebrities, when they pass away, nowadays it is usually on social media. And then there is the sea of humanity, that erupted on a rainy friday of Ramadhan 1980 on the streets of Bandra and Juhu. It was 1980, not the time when the dwellers of this city could afford a new umbrella every monsoon. So it was black umbrellas galore on the tv screen, and many people who were without umbrella, having come out to brave the weather or travelled overnight from other parts of the country. They all had one aim, to accompany their beloved Rafi Sahab to the final destination. To walk two steps alongwith the ‘janaza’ of a ‘nek banda’, with the prayers for the departed soul’s maghfirah on every lip and in the heart.

I realized the real pain of losing someone close and dear 9 years ago, when my elder sister expired. A few days after that, my father said that he didn’t know what to ask from the Almighty in du’aa, as most of my du’aa was for her health and long life. In my turn I told him that though we all are grieving and crying on her passing away, but the tears and sadness is all for us actually. The thought of living on without that dear one, makes us feel lonely and bereft.

A year before she died, I had visited her in Bangalore. She was over the top to have me visit her, and we went to a lot of places. One day we both were going somewhere and we passed a ‘qabrastaan’ where her mother-in-law was buried. She said a prayer and told me we should always recite the prayer whenever we pass a qabrastan. The prayer roughly translates as “today you are resting here, we shall follow you tomorrow, for sure”.

Some similar thoughts on passing away of Rafi sahab are expressed in this song written by Anand Bakshi. This is a unique song in the film ‘Kroadh’ where Amitabh Bachchan is called on stage to pay tribute of Rafi Sahab on his 9th death anniversary programme. Amitabh Bachchan says a few sentences and starts singing the song:

na fankaar tujhsa tere baad aaya…
Mohammed Rafi tu bahot yaad aayaa….

The singer here is Mohammed Aziz who himself has passed away a few months ago. He has sung this song in memory of his idol very feelingly and there are tears in the eyes of Amitabh as he sings on stage and also the audience who are watching it. The scenes of ‘janaaza’ that Amitabh Bachchan is seen as recalling, were truly witnessed by him as well as Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant Pyarelal(possibly). I am sure about Amitabh Bachchan having witnessed it funeral as I have seen a photographs of him with Amjad Khan, Vinod Khanna and Rajesh Khanna. Here is the article where he Amitabh remembers the same.
This article has some rare photos of the fateful day.

The song is so appropriate for this occasion, that I am neglecting to post a song by Rafi Sahab himself. But this song expresses the feelings of Mohammed Aziz, Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Anand Bakshi, as the record holder for having written highest no. of film songs must be the lyricist with the highest no. of songs written for Rafi Sahab too. Laxmikant-Pyarelal are also having similar record with Rafi Sahab. Right from ‘Dosti’ and ‘Parasmani’, they were the one’s who justified the ‘Dosti’ and stood with Rafi Sahab through his thick and thin.

These artists composed and performed the song 9 years after Rafi Sahab’s passing away, and gave words and expression to the feelings of millions of his fans throughout the world.

teraa naam koyi nahi bhool paaya
Mohammed Rafi tu bahot yaad aayaa

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.
