The date today is 15 november 2019. It was on this day thirty years ago (on 15 november 1989) that Sachin Tendulkar made his test debut. By a remarkable coincidence, it was on this day fifty years ago (viz on 15 november 1969) that Gundappa Vishwanath made his test debut as well.

A test match is being played today (15 november 2019) by India at Indore. It was while watching this match that I became aware that it was exactly thirty and fifty years ago that two Indian batting legends made their test debuts.

These batting legends enhanced the stature of Indian batting. Seeing their batting, lots of batting talents came up in India. If today Indian batting is regarded as the strongest among all test playing nations then Gundappa Vishwanath and Sachin Tendulkar have played inspirational and important roles in that. It was appropriate that Indian batsmen “celebrated” the occasion by dishing out a memorable batting performance today- they hammered 406 runs in one day of test cricket. Last one hour saw more than one hundred runs being scored as T20 rate.

This occasion needs to be celebrated in the blog too, with a suitable song. While searching for a suitable song, I became aware that “Awwal Number”(1990) was a movie that centered around cricket.

“Awwal Number”(1990) was produced and directed by Dev Anand. This movie had Dev Anand, Aamir Khan, Aditya Pancholi, Neeta Puri, Ekta, Sudhir Pandey, Vikram Gokhale, Parikshat Sahni, Ram Mohan, Anjan Srivastava, Bharat Bhushan, Birbal, Sameer Khakkar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Raj Kishore, Manmouji, Mac Mohan, Asha Sharma, Subbiraj, Ajit Vachchani, Aftab Shivdasani etc in it.

I was aware about the movie, but I was not aware that this movie was about cricket. It was not only about cricket, it even had a song about cricket. Just what the doctor ordered, as Ravi Shashstri, in his commentating avatar would have said.

Here is this song. It is sung by Udit Narayan, Amit Kumar and Bappi Lahiri. Amit Khanna is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

With this song, “Awwal Number”(1990) makes its debut in the blog.

Thanks to Prakashchandra, I have been able to watch the video of this song. The picturisation shows that this song is picturised on Dev Anand (lip syncing in Bappi Lahiri’s voice), Aditya Pancholi (Amit Kumar’s voice) and Aamir Khan (Udit Narayan’s voice).

“Waardaat”(1981) was produced and directed by Ravikant Nagaich for Gopi Enterprises, Bombay. This movie had Mithun Chakraborty, Kajal Kiran, Shakti Kapoor, Kalpana Iyer, Iftekhar,Birbal, Kesto Mukherjee, Jagdeep, Prem Bedi, Manorama, Praveen Paul, Thyagraj, Randhir, Dinesh Hingoo, Prem Kumar, Sharat etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. They were sung by five singers.

Today (7 november 2019) is the 71st birthday of Usha Uthup. On this occasion, here is a song from “Waardaat”(1981). This song is sung by Usha Uthup and Bappi Lahiri. Ramesh Pant is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song is picturised on Kalypana Iyer and Mithun Chakraborty.

Mithun Chakrborty enjoyed vast popularity among the chawanni chhaap movie goers of those days :). Such audiences were to be found all over India, and more so in eastern part of the country. Front stall movieoers of Bihar (including present day Jharkhand) “ditched” their own Shatrughan Sinha and became fans of Mithun Chakraborty. 🙂

I was among the small minority who did not like Mithun Chakraborty movies. 🙂

If teenagers of Maharashtra celebrated Ganpati festival, then teenagers in Eastern parts celebrated Saraswati Puja in a similarly grand way. Playing hindi movie music in these Saraswati Puja pandals used to be a major activity of these saraswati Puja festivities. Operating the record player and thus deciding which songs to play used to be a much sought after task. I had the proud privilege of being the record player operator in early 1980s at Ranchi. 🙂 I recall playing “disco” songs of those days, including the song under discussion. 🙂

Most Saraswati Puja organisers used to be academically challenged. They would bring their (largely untouched) textbooks in the pandal to be kept at the feet of goddess Saraswati, hoping that pooja thus performed would magically transfer the contents of those text books into their brains. 🙂

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, “Waardaat”(1981) makes its debut in the blog.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This song has been suggested by Peevesie’w Mom ji, for inclusion in this series. Interestingly enough, the original song from the ‘Disco Dancer’ was posted on our blog by herself only, on June 16th, last year. Last year she has posted this on the birth anniversary of the prime protagonist of this song – Mithun Chakravarty.

So when I initiated this series, she almost immediately connected with me, and sent me the link to this repeat song, with the request that I post it on the 16th June. But my bad – even though I did start preparing this post well in time, 16th June was not to be, due to other compelling priorities etc. So today, fourteen days later, we are sending in this very belated birthday greeting to this original Disco Dancer.

The original song appears on our blog here >> “I Am A Disco Dancer”. It is from the 1982 film ‘Disco Dancer’ with music by Bappi Lahiri, and singing voice is of Vijay Benedict. In this later version from the 2010 film ‘Golmaal 3’, the song has been re recorded in the voice of Bappi Lahiri himself. This version is shorter than the original by one stanza.

The interesting peculiarity, rather a unique feature about this repeat song is that on screen it is performed by the same artist, after a gap of 28 years. And so, it is an interesting comparison to view both these songs side by side. When he performed this song in 1982, he was all of 30 years of age. And the repeat – well in 2010, Mithun was 58 years old. The energy and the intensity of his dance movements of course has dimmed down quite a bit. In this latter version we are bringing on today, most of his movements are single move shots, standing at one place, very unlike the vigorous moves he makes as he bounces across the stage, 28 years earlier. But surely, kudos to him for still taking on this challenge, and making quite a good show of it. It is in his eyes – the intensity in his eyes is still the same.

As I am writing about this unique repeat song, I am also reminded of another similar repeat, that is actually a hallmark in the history of Hindi film music. Yes, I am reminding readers of the very first song in Hindi films – “De De Khuda Ke Naam Pe Pyaare”. That song, and its singer, has made an even more significantly unique record in the annals of Hindi film songs. Wazir Mohammed Khan, who has sung, as well as performed on screen, this momentous song in ‘Alam Aara’ in 1931 – he was destined to repeat it twice, as both the singer and the on screen performer. The film ‘Alam Aara’ was remade twice, in 1956 and then again in 1973. With the first rendition being in 1931, after 25 years, it gets reprised in 1956, and then again after another 17 years in 1973 – the second repeat coming 42 years after the original performance.

WM Khan was born in 1906 – that makes him just 25 years of age when he appeared in the original ‘Alam Aara’ of 1931. With a white turban and a flowing grey beard, this young man of 25 years played the role of a 70+ years old mendicant. In 1956, he was fifty when he reprised this role the first time. And then, in 1973, he was 67 years of age, when he played the fakeer yet one more time, singing the same song. Of course, the third time he did not need a make-up artifact – the white beard we see is his own. The very first song in Hindi films – repeated twice over, and by the same singer-performer, over a period of 42 years. This accomplishment in the annals of Hindi films is likely to go down in history – unmatched and unchallenged.

On another note, since I initiated this series, I have been getting some very seriously interesting suggestions from various readers of our blog, and other friends in my circle. Some very interesting songs are coming up as repeats in the next episodes of this series.

Regarding the film ‘Golmaal 3’, I am not getting into details. The Wiki page of this film carries a lot of good information. One interesting connect I made about this film. Although this song is credited to Bappi Lahiri, being the music director of the original, the MD of ‘Golmaal 3’ is Pritam. Full name of this gentleman is Pritam Chakravarty. So we have the MD and the lead player in the film – both Chakravarty. To top it, the name of the character role played by Mithun in the film – it is Pritam. 😀 😀

OK, so the 4th episode done, with a promise of a few very interesting ones to come up. Watch this space – 🙂 .
