Hullo Atuldom

Today’s post takes one more movie to YYIIPPEEEEHood.

“Khwaab” (1980) was a crime, court room drama genre movie with some romance and great songs thrown in for making it a complete entertainer. It had a cast of Ranjeeta, Yogita Bali, Mithun Chakraborty, Naseeruddin Shah, with Ashok Kumar, Madan Puri, Utpal Dutt leding the supporting cast which also had Chaman Puri, Birbal, Jagdish Raj, Sujit Kumar, Yunuz Parvez, Dinesh Thakur etc. It was directed by Shakti Samanta, had dialogues by Dr. Rahi Masoom Reza, songs were written and composed by Raindra Jain. Hemlata, Yesudas, Suresh Wadkar, Jaspal Singh and Mohd. Rafi were the playback singers.
The movie had four songs three of which are on the blog as follows:

Song Date of posting Remarks
Tu hi wo haseen hai 31 july 2015
Ek aas luye vishwaas liye 20 July 2020
Ham khwaab ko badal denge haqeeqat mein 22 September 2020 a very good post by Nahmji where she spoke about the usage of the English alphabet ‘K’ in Indian languages

Today’s song is an ‘outdoors song’ possibly inspired by the “jootaa hai japani” song from “Shri 420” (1955). We see Mithun walking, singing and dancing his way to Bombay (as it used to be called back then) and Raj Kapoor’s potli on a stick is replaced by a suitcase. On the way he sees Ranjeeta zipping past in an open Red car complete with sunglasses and Red Hat etc. These aspects -the open car had to be Red and two seater; the driver dressed smartly and slightly haughty- were mandatory to establish character-traits. And by the time the song comes to a close Mithun sees that Ranjeeta’s car has stalled- another mandatory. 🙂 The singer is K J Yesudas.

We are having this song to Wish Mithunda a very Happy birthday- may the song and dance and entertainment continue forever.

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

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

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

Filmfare Award for Best Music Director– Won

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And remember Laxmikant Kudalkar, the musician.

“Warrant”(1975) was directed by Pramod Chakraborty for N P International, Bombay. The movie had Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Dara Singh, Satish Kaul, Ajit, Pran, Jankidas, Sulochana, Aparna Chaudhary, Seema Kapoor, Jagdish Raj, V Gopal, Birbal, Habeeb, Pal Sharma, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti, Viju Khote, Ujagar Singh, Lamba, Ratan Gaurang, Praveen Pal, Bunty, Madan Puri, Joginder etc in it.

The movie is described as a “social” movie in HFGK, but it was an “action” movie, ie Dev Anand style action movie. 🙂

I have not seen the movie, but from what I can guage from the picturisation of the songs, Dev Anand plays a crook escaping from the law with Zeenat Aman as his accomplice. Zeenat Aman would play a similar role with Amitabh Bachchan in “Don”(1978) and that movie, unlike “Warrant” (1975) went on to become a super duper hit mainly thanks to Amitabh Bachchan’s superb performance.

I have noticed that the story line of Dev Anand movies of 1970s used to be great but Dev Saab’s insistence on playing the hero in these movies ensured that the movies failed to do justice to the story and they would get forgotten soon. Thankfully, Dev Saab would often reject some movies and his roles in those movies were then given to some other actor and that actor enacted the roles with aplomb. For instance, Dev saab had rejected the movie “Tumsa Nahin Dekha”(1957). That role was then offered to a strugling actor called Shammi Kapoor and we all know that the movie “Tumsa Nahin Dekha”(1957) launched the career of Shammi Kapoor. 16 years later, Dev saab refused another movie. This movie was then offered to another struggling actor. He played the role so well that the movie launched him as the next big star. That movie, which Dev saab rejected was “Zanjeer”(1973) which was offered to Amitabh Bachchan and the rest is history.

Had Dev saab not rejected “Tumsa Nahin Dekha”(1957) and “Zanjeer”(1973) then HF world may not have discovered Shammi “yahoo” Kapoor and Amitabh “angry young man” Bachchan. And these movies, with Dev Saab in lead roles would have done some moderate business and the movie would have ended up along the lines of say “Warrant”(1975).

I can say the same about other Dev Saab starrer movies like “Ye Gulistaan Hamaara”(1973), “Des Pardes”(1978) etc. They all had great story line, but they failed to do justice to the story line and ended up as normal movies instead of all time super hits.

Coming to “Warrant”(1975), the songs of this movie had caught the imagination of HFM lovers during its time. Its song Ruk jaana O jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana was a big rage, thanks to the unique “kuk kuk” sound contained in it. Other songs too were very popular.

The movie had four songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the blog so far.
Here are the details :-

Blog post number Song Date of posting Blog day
102 Ruk jaana O jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana 18 September 2008 62
10515 Main tumse mohabbat karti hoon 19 November 2014 2315
15323 Ladi najariya ladi chali re phuljhadi 3 December 2019 4155

One can see that the most popular song of the movid, Ruk jaana O jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana was covered in the blog within two months after the launch of the blog. But the second song from the movie was covered six years later. The third song was discussed after another five years.

So a movie with just four songs has not yet been YIPPEED in the blog in nearly 12 years !

Here is the fourth and final song from the movie. This song “suno bhai baaraati” was quite popular during its time.

I have not watched the movie. I watched the picturisation of the song just no. Song is great but the picturisation would not impress people who insist on trying to find logic in the proceedings. The picturisation shows Dev saab and Zeenat Aman being pursued by police. A Christian wedding is taking place in a nearby church. The hero and heroine go and get dressed as groom and bride and give police the slip. I never knew that one can get dressed in wedding dress so fast. where did they locate their dresses so fast ? And how come the people gathered to attend the wedding in the Church started celebrating the fake wedding of our hero and heroine with such gusto and theyeven sang chorus in Konkani in the song ?

Here is the song. It is sung by Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

I am unable to mnote don the Konkani portion sung by the chorus. I request our knowledgeable readers familiar with Konkani to help fill in the Konkani lyrics.

ith this song, all the four songs of “Warrant”(1975) get covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Song-Suno bhai baaraati (Warrant)(1975) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

(konkani words)

suno bhai baaraati
suno bhai baaraati
arre dulha dulhan ko akela zara chhodo
pyaar bhari baaten karen jeevan saathi
suno bhai baaraati

haan
badi mushkil se dil milte hain
armaanon ke gul khilte hain
jeevan mein bas ek baar
badi mushkil se dil milte hain
armaanon ke gul khilte hain
jeevan mein bas ek baar
saajan sajni ko akele zara chhodo
mil ke gale lahraayen deepak baati
suno bhai baaraati
suno bhai baaraati
haan

(konkani words)

haan
upar se hum rangeele hain
andar se hum sharmeele hain
dekho na humen is tarah
upar se hum rangeele hain
andar se hum sharmeele hain
dekho na humen is tarah
ladka ladki ko akela zara chhodo
raat milan ki hai ik baar aati
suno bhai baaraati
suno bhai baaraati

hey
kaam karo sab apna apna
dekh rahe hain hum ek sapna
premi hain khoye huye ae
kaam karo sab apna apna
dekh rahe hain hum ek sapna
premi hain khoye huye
arre gudda guddi ko akela zara chhodo
phir dekho preet kya hai rang laati
suno bhai baaraati
suno bhai baaraati

“Phir Wahi Raat”(1980) was produced by N N Sippy and directed by Danny Denzongpa. This suspense film had Rajesh Khanna, Kim, Danny Denzongpa, Aruna Irani, Jagdeep, A K Hangal, Tamanna, Lalita Pawar, Shashikala, Suresh Oberoi, Bhagwan Dada, Mukri, Om Shivpuri, Shubha Khote etc in it.

I have not watched this movie, but the movie appears quite an interesting movie, going by the story as contained in its wikipedia page:

Asha(Kim) lives in a hostel and troubled by the nightmares of her deceased aunt. The hostel warden (Lalita Pawar) and her friend Shobha (Aruna Irani) take her to a psychiatrist Dr Vijay (Rajesh Khanna). Doctor finds nothing wrong with her and advises her to get away from old memories. Parents of other girl’s from the hostel complains the administration about Asha’s behaviour and she was told to vacate the place.

Asha decides to go to her ancestral home. Dr Vijay and Shobha accompanies her. The huge manor is taken care of by Vishwanath (A.K. Hanglal) and his daughter Gauri (Tamanna). Dr Vijay and Asha develop a bond and after a few days Dr Vijay goes back to city for some work. Same night Asha sees a scary looking woman walking in the corridors. The woman keeps haunting her every night and Asha’s condition worsens. Dr Vijay comes back to help her and meets Asha’s cousin Ashok (Danny) in the manor.

Dr Vijay and Ashok plan a big party on the occasion of Asha’s birthday. Ashok calls his wife who lives abroad to join them. Ashok’s wife arrives, when Asha is cutting her birthday cake. Asha gets shocked to see her as she is the same woman who is haunting her from last many days in the house. She gets panicked and stabs Ashok’s wife, who succumbs to her injuries and dies on the spot. Police inspector Sharma (Suresh Oberoi), who is a guest of the party arrests Asha on the charge of murder. The court suspends the hearing as Asha’s condition is not stable and she is not suitable to go through the legal process.

Dr Vijay treats Asha and tries to get the answer why Asha killed Ashok’s wife. He tells Asha that Ashok’s wife arrives in India on the same day and there is no possibility that Asha saw her before her birthday in that house. But Asha is adamant that it was Ashok’s wife who was haunting her.

Gauri also gets killed after a few days. Shobha starts watching another woman walking around the house. Dr Vijay investigates further with the help of Inspector Sharma and solve the mystery at the end exposing a web of lies and greed.

This story piqued my interest and I have thought of watching this movie to find about the mystery. Watching this movie on the big screen during its original run in 1980 would have been the best way to watch the movie. Watching this movie 40 years, and that too on a tiny laptop, sitting alone would not be the same. 95 % of the thril and anticipation and suspence of watcing the movie with others would be missing.

The movie had six songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Phir Wahi Raat”(1980) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Sushma Shreshtha. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a car song on Rajesh Khanna, Aruna Irani and Kim.

The tune of the some sounds familiar. It is same as that of Meri soni meri tamanna jhoothha nahin hai mera pyaar (Yaadon Ki Baaraat). If this movie is called “Phir Wahi Raat”, then this tune can be called “Phir Wahi tune”. 🙂

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala long ago. Today happens to be his birthday. So we take this opportunity to wish him happy birthday and many happy returns of the day,

Today’s song is from the film Jeewan yatra-46. This film was made by Rajkamal. The film was a social film, directed by Master Vinayak and its music was composed by Vasant Desai.

V Shantaram left Prabhat films or rather was compelled to leave it, because he broke a rule of Prabhat Films. Soon after When the company was founded, one of its directors S Fattelal had married one of its lead actresses Gulab Bai aka Kamla Devi (one who is seen bending in the Prabhat Logo). After this, the team of partners/directors made a rule that if, in future, any of them falls in love with an artiste of the company or gets married to her, he will have to leave the company. After a few years, Keshav Rao Dhaiber, one partner, married Prabhat’s Heroine Nalini Tarkhad. He had to leave the company,in 1938.

V Shantaram also loved and married Prabhat’s lead actress Jayashree (Kamulkar) and had to leave the company. As such, all was also not well between Shantaram and other directors,because they felt that somehow, Shantaram kept all the focus on him for publicity, though they too were capable. Due to all this he left Prabhat. For some time he worked in the Films Division and then started his own studio “RAJ KAMAL Kalamandir”, on the premises of Wadia studios. The name of his company was made up by taking the first syllable of his parents’ names – RAJ(aram) and KAMAL(abai) making RAJKAMAL.

The first film of Rajkamal was Shakuntala with Jayashree playing the role of Shakuntala and Chandra Mohan being King Dushyant. Next films were, Parbat pe apna Dera-44 and Jeevan Yatra-46. Then came the iconic film “Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani”-46. Rajkamal produced many well known films, mostly in Prabhat tradition. I personally consider the film “Do aankhen barah haath”-58, as its best film in terms of the content, acting and the Music. It’s a matter of pride that one of the songs of this film-“Aye Maalik tere bande hum”, became the school prayer song in Pakistan, till 1965.(Ref:Ruperi Smaranyatra by Prof. Subhash Savarkar).

Film Jeevan Yatra-46 was directed by Master Vinayak. This was his last film as a director for Shantaram. Rajkamal films were directed by Shantaram, Vinayak, Keshavrao Datey, V Awadhoot or Kiran Shantaram only. Initially the studio system was very strong in the film industry, but during and after the II WW, Freelancing and crumbling of the studios, one after the other saw the virtual extinction of the studio system. Companies affected were Sagar, Ranjit, National, Wadia, Prabhat, Bombay Talkies, New Theatres, Madon Theatres, East India, Shalimar, Paramount, Imperial etc. It sadly heralded individualistic operations. Most studios became available for hiring for shootings. Only Rajkamal, Mehboob and RK studios etc continued some more years with almost the same force. Now, RK studio is demolished and Rajkamal and Mehboob studios are used for TV serial shooting and audio recording facilities.

Talking of Master Vinayak, it was Shantaram who helped shape his career. In Kolhapur, the 3 families- Bhal G. Pendharkar, V Shantaram and Master Vinayak were closely related. Bhal ji Pendharkar (Bhalchandra Gopal Pendharkar) was the son of Dr.Gopal Pendharkar, the Royal Physician of Shahu Maharaj of Kolhapur state and his partner Radhabai. Dr. Gopal was already married to another lady. This couple gave birth to Bhalji and Baburao Pendharkar. Their mother Radhabai left Dr. Gopal Pendharkar and married Damodar Karnataki. They had two sons- Master Vinayak (father of Baby Nanda), famous actor, director, producer and a studio owner and his brother Vasudev- who became a Cameraman. Kamalabai, the younger sister of Radhabai married Rajaram Vankudre and they had 2 sons- V.Shantaram, famous actor, director,producer and a studio owner and his brother V. Awadhoot- equally famous Cinematographer.

Master Vinayak Karnataki ( 19-1-1906 to 19-8-1947) was born in Kolhapur. Many of his cousins and family members were already in the Film line.His half brothers Bhal ji and Baburao Pendharkar, maternal cousin V. Shantaram and his brother V.Avadhoot ( cinematographer) were in films. His own brother Vasudev also became a cameraman. Master Vinayak was working as a Teacher in a school, but Bhalji brought him in films. Initially Vinayak was with Prabhat, working under Shantaram and learning many things. He started his own company ” Hans Pictures” in partnership with Baburao Pendharkar and cameraman Pandurang Naik. Their first film was Chhaya-36. (almost all films made by Vinayak till 47 were bilingual in Marathi and Hindi-sometimes with different Titles ( like Ardhangi in Marathi became Ghar ki rani-40 in Hindi etc.)

While Shantaram stressed on technical aspects of film making successfully, Vinayak was keen on a strong story. Therefore he used the works of Top class writers in Marathi like V.S.Khandekar, P.K.Atre, Mama Varerkar etc. ( V.S.Khandekar, later won Sahitya Akademi award, Jnanpith award, Padma Bhushan award and many honours like D.Litt etc. The Government issued a Postage stamp after his death also). Film Chhaya won many awards and was commercially successful. Next Dhrmaveer-37 and Premveer-37 ( The Heroine in this film was Ashalata-wife of Anil Biswas). Then came film Jwala-38, with Chandramohan in both versions-Marathi and Hindi. He learnt to speak excellent Marathi for this film. Later he did 3 more Marathi films also. unfortunately, film Jwala was a resounding flop-not because of anything else. According to V.S.Khandekar, Vinayak had meddled with the story too much. ( this looks to be a chronic ailment of the film line !)

Vinayak fell back on comedy and made Brahmachari-38 and Brandi ki botal-39. Both were successful, but the loss due to Jwala was too big. Even one more comedy- Ghar ki rani-40 could not salvage the damage and Hans pictures was dissolved to form another company Navyug Chitrapat, with added P.K.Atre as a partner. Navyug was the first film company to offer 100 rs. shares directly to the public. ( Bombay Talkies had shares with only the directors, initially). The first film was Lapandav-40. Though successful, P.K.Atre left the company- (along with its Heroine Vanmala- his consort) and established his own company Atre Pictures.

After another comedy, Navyug made Amrit-41. In the year 1942, Navyug made the film ‘ Pahili Mangalagaur”-42, in which Lata Mangeshkar made her debut as an actress and singer. She sang her first ever film song with Snehprabha Pradhan- under the baton of Dada Chandekar. There was a kissing scene of Snehprabha and Shahu Modak in this film. During the making of this film, Vinayak left Navyug and started his own ” Prafull Pictures”. Vinayak made several Hindi and Marathi films including Badi Maa-45. Vinayak died on 19-8-1947, just 4 days after Independence.

Vinayak acted in 18 Hindi films, from Jalti Nishani-32 to film Mandir-48. He also directed 13 Hindi films, from film Nigah E Nafrat-35 (debut film of Shobhana Samarth) to film Mandir-48. He sang 22 songs in 10 films. But from film premveer-37 onwards he could not sing properly due to his tooth problems, hence Master Vasant Eric used to sing his songs for the balance 6 films, though mostly Vinayak is credited for these songs.

Now, who was this Master Eric ? His real name was Vasant Jadhav. He was born in 1907 into a Marathi Christian family of Kolhapur. Bhalji Pendharkar selected him for acting and singing in Shyam Cinetone’s film Parth kumar-1934 (Hindi/Marathi) His pet name was Eric, so he became Vasant Eric and later on due to his singing, he was called Master Vasant Eric. He joined Kolhapur Shalini Cinetone and worked with master Vinayak. He also worked in films like Aakashwani-34 and Honhaar-36. He sang songs in films from 1937 onwards. In all the Marathi/Hindi films of Vinayak he sang for him.

Vasant Eric knew Ratanbai. She introduced him to Ardeshir Irani and he employed Eric in his Music Department, playing various instruments and singing whenever needed. He acted and sang in films made by Huns, Navyug and Prafull films. In 1948, he gave music to a Marathi film. He was called by many MDs to play Chord Piano for their songs.The male voice in Lata’s First Hindi Playback song ” Paa laagu kar jori re” is that of master Vasant Eric only.

His son Ravindra was an actor and daughter Hemlata Shankar (Jadhav) was a film dancer. His grandson Nitin Shanker is an arranger in Bollywood today. Master Vasant Eric died in 1982.(Ack: Marathi Chitrapat Sangeetkar Kosh by Madhukar Potdar).

As per The Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema, film Jeewan Yatra-46 features a large number of characters travelling on a bus to Benares. A storm forces the passengers to take shelter in an abandoned temple where a prostitute tries to seduce Raja (Yakub) and he is left behind. The bus later breaks down and when Raja rejoins the group a local bandit, Vishwas (Pendharkar), attacks it. Eventually the bandit turns out to be Raja’s father and the husband of an old woman, Kalindi (Protima Devi), another passenger on the bus. Vinayak’s only film in the mainstream Hindi cinema, it included the collective number Ao azadi ke geet gate chalein and Lata Mangeshkar’s Chidiya bole choo choo. Lata Mangeshkar plays a village girl.

There were 10 songs in this film. Twqo songs are already on the Blog. This is the third one. It is a song sung by Khan Mastana, Zeenat Begum and other uncredited voices.

जाने आज क्या हुआ
ऐसा कभी हुआ न था आ
साँसों में घुले नशा
जैसा कभी घुला न था आ
तुम्ही बोलो क्या करें
ऐसा होगा पता न था

मीठा मीठा दर्द सा
उठे अंग अंग में ए
जागे कोई आग सी ई
जीने की उमंग में
हवा से तपे बदन
जैसा कभी तपा न था
साँसों में घुले नशा
जैसा कभी घुला न था आ
तुम्ही बोलो क्या करें
ऐसा होगा पता न था

छाया छाया दूर तक
रंगों का गुबार है
ऐसा तो न था जहां
हो न हो ये प्यार है
ख्वाबों का समा सजा
जैसा कभी सजा न था
साँसों में घुले नशा
जैसा कभी घुला न था आ
तुम्ही बोलो क्या करें
ऐसा होगा पता न था
जाने आज क्या हुआ
ऐसा कभी हुआ न था आ
साँसों में घुले नशा
जैसा कभी घुला न था आ
तुम्ही बोलो क्या करें
ऐसा होगा पता न था

Happy Friendship day to all in Atuldom

As I have said in my post last year, the first Sunday of August is celebrated in many parts of the world as Friendship day. All the proverbs or sayings connected with Friends and Friendship come rushing to the mind viz. “a friend in need is a friend indeed”; “a real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out”; “every gift from your friend is a wish for your happiness”; “a friends’ eye is like a good mirror”; etc.

At the same time I can recollect numerous songs from Bollywood connected with friendship and friends like “doston se pyaar kiya dushmanon se badle liya” (which subsequently Usha Uthup used to sing as “doston se pyaar kiya dushmano se bahut pyaar kiya” in all her concerts); “ae yaar sun yaari teri mujhe zindagi se bhi pyaari hai”; and the most popular of them all- “ye dosti hum nahin todenge”.

It is really fortunate to have friends on whom one can rely. It is an experience where in, one can just pick up the phone and begin talking as if there was no break in the one-to-one interaction, or any lapse of time in between one meeting or chat and another. And I must say I experienced it. So much so, that around the beginning of June a few friends of mine from my college days decided to meet up at the place of one amongst us and spend a few days together.

Much like the gangout that I had with my blog friends in April end. That gangout was decided at short notice, even the venue changed from Guruji’s place to Kamathji’s place as Guruji had to urgently rush out of Mumbai. It was a hangout that fell in place as Sudhirji intimated that he will be in Mumbai at that time with Bakshishji for company, for almost a week. And I didn’t want to miss the opportunity of meeting the two of them, and made it aware that I will have only a few hours at my disposal before catching my return bus to Bangalore. And the hangout happened with Bharatji, Sudhirji, Bakshishji and Nitinji.

We had a very gracious and efficient host in Kamathji and his family. I simply loved the attention they gave us. Nitinji and Bharatji had already arrived when I reached the venue and then the bell rang. We all expected it to be the Dilliwales but it turned to be our ever-smiling IN-HOUSE ENCYCLOPAEDIA. That was the best surprise that could have been sprung on the gang as we were without information about his location. And the sweet/ cute person that he is, he decided to meet us as soon as he landed in Mumbai – just that morning. Then the Dilliwales walked in and we had quorum so to speak. We managed to spend a joyful time where Sudhirji and Bakshishji spoke of their time well-spent over the last two days doing what we all enjoy- listening to music.

So, when birds of the same feather flock together there is a whole lot of Music, Masti And Magic. (this last 3 Ms is the slogan of one of the many music channels on satellite television). Like it happened when I met my gang of college friends in the heart of summer and the country reeling under temperatures of 40-49 degrees Celsius. But that didn’t stop us from getting out into the sun and seeing a part of the country which we had never visited. And when it got too hot, we just whiled away the time in the comfort of the air-conditioned room, talking of old times and catching up on 30 years of gossip, with platefuls of snacks and mugs full of tea/ coffee. Yes, I had met a particular friend after that many years but we never felt that it was that long back. There was no awkwardness. That is what friends and friendship is about I suppose.

We have numerous Hindi film songs where gangs of girl friends pick up their cycles and go about singing like Saira Banu did in Padosan or Nutan did in Anaari and Chhaliya. Heroes are no different and we have seen Rajendra Kumar in Aas Ka Panchchi; Rishi Kapoor and Rakesh Roshan with their group of friends in Aap Ke Deewane etc. But our movie stars also sing along with their friends in open topped cars and jeeps and we end up having songs like “chaahe koi khush ho chaahe gaaliyan hazaar de”; “Manubhai motor chale pom pom pom”.

Now there is a similarity in the two open topped car songs that I have mentioned. Though the two songs are 24 years apart, and they show the heroes frolicking about they are singing in the same voice. That of Kishore Kumar.

Kishore Kumar who would have been 90 today. Unbelievable!!! But then we are not fortunate to have him amongst us. We are fortunate that we have his songs- songs that tickle us into laughter, bring a smile to our lips, nudge us out of bad moods. And we are grateful to lord almighty for this singer, actor, producer, director and music composer who lived amongst us mortals. Whose friendship with Dev Anand, RD Burman, Rajesh Khanna etc is well known. His voice was instrumental in shaping the careers of many actors till Anil Kapoor, Sunjay Dutt, Kumar Gaurav etc.

Today’s song is from the 1978 Surinder Kapoor produced, Sikandar Khanna directed “Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan” which starred Rishi Kapoor and Moushumi Chatterjee in lead roles with Ashok Kumar, Amjad Khan, Asrani, Ranjeet, Helen, Paintal Mukri, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo etc. Mithun Chakravarthy played one of Rishi Kapoor’s many friends in the movie. The songs were written by Rajinder Krishan and Laxmikant- Pyarelal were the music composers.

I have seen this movie years ago but the story of the movie as given on IMDB.com is as follows (and is accurate I must say) —
Aware that his grandson has acquired all the bad habits of a rich and spoiled brat, including womanizing and alcohol, Lala Ganpat Rai, instructs his lawyers to make it conditional that he, Vishal, shall not receive any money or property from his estate unless he fulfills either of two conditions. One: That he marries a woman of Rai’s choice, Shalini, who shall inherit half of the property; and in order for Vishal to inherit all of the property he must re-locate to their farmhouse in a village, cultivate a piece of land, and grow some crops on it within one year. Needless to say, Vishal is enraged at this, and neither of the two conditions are acceptable to him. However, he reconsiders this, and he and half a dozen friends travel to the village, set a comfortable albeit accommodations, and attempt to cultivate the land. Things do not go as planned, as Vishal and his friends are accused of molesting and raping a village belle, which leads to her suicide. His friends, noticing the changed atmosphere, disappear, leaving Vishal alone to carry out the mammoth task of cultivating the land on his own, without help or support, and angry villagers who may expel him from their village. It looks like Vishal is on his way of losing everything he had ever hoped, prayed, and taken for granted.

From the above story it is evident that friends can make or break one’s life. There is a line in the other song that I have mentioned above

“chaahe koi khush ho chaahe gaaliyan hazaar de” which is how friendships should be

“baant kar jo khaaye us pe apne jaan-o-dil lutaa
jo bachaaye maal us ko jooti’on ka haar de”

Let your heart and your life be beholden
For a buddy who shares his food with you
But for him, who scrimps and keeps safe his things
Be sure to present him with a garland of shoes”

-this I have copy pasted from the post that Sudhirji had written for the song.

Happy Birthday to our Kishore Kumar

“Afsaana” (1966) was a Devi Movietones presentation. It was produced by Dilip Mukherji and directed by Brij Sadanah. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Padmini, Pradeep Kumar, Jagdeep, Helen,Anwar Hussain, Tuntun JeevanKala, Master Khaliq, Jillani, Amrit Rana, Amar,Ted Lyons and His Cubs etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Afsaana” (1966) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

The song is picturised on Padmini who is shows lip syncing this joyous song while driving a car and going through roads that appear quite empty. we are talking of 1966 when Indian roads indeed were empty with very few people owing cars. Even owning two wheelers was considered a sign of luxury and privilege those days.

One may enjoy the picturisation, but one is not advised to handle the steering wheel like Padmini ! She is shown grabbing the steeling wheel with one hand, and she keeps rotating the steering wheel even on straight road. 🙂 If ladies get inspired to drive watching Padmini them most pedestrians will run for cover, that is for sure. 🙂

The car is also shown going through a bridge over a river. This portion of the scene somehow reminded myself of Bogibeel bridge, India’s longest rail cum road bridge over the mighty Brahmputra river that was inaugurated recently (on 25 december 2018). I would dearly love to talk about that bridge in one of my future writeups. For now, let us enjoy this road song from “Afsaana” (1966)

jaise kahin lehraa ke pawan chanchal nikle
jaise kahin lahraa ke pawan chanchal nikle
tod ke har zanjeer sitam hum chal nikle

bin jaane bin dekhe

bin jaane bin dekhe

peechhe mud kar kya takna
chalte hi rahne ki
jab baandh ke hum paayal nikle
jaise kahin lehraa ke pawan chanchal nikle
tod ke har zanjeer sitam hum chal nikle

aayegi kabhi ae dil teri manchaahi koi manzil
aayegi kabhi ae dil teri manchaahi koi manzil
hum bhi to isi dhun mein
aankhon mein bhare kaajal nikle
jaise kahi lehrake pawan chanchal nikle
tod kar har zanjeer sitam hum chal nikle

hullo Atuldom

Day before yesterday I sat through a movie called “Suhana Safar” looking for a suitable song to wish Sharmila Tagore on her birthday which is this week, made a few mental notes etc. Then I went for a short walk, returned and switched back on to the net to check cricket score etc and the first thing that I saw – an announcement on yahoo’s home page “Shashi Kapoor passes away after prolonged illness at a Mumbai hospital at the age of 79”. My first reaction- “oh no!” Then I thought let me see if atulites have got the news and I saw that our Rajaji had just broken the news there.
