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

Blog Day : 3815 Post No. : 14813

“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)

Song-Jaise kahin lehra ke pawan chanchal nikle(Afsaana)(1966) Singer-Lata, Lata, Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

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
kise humraahi keh dete
bin jaane bin dekhe
kise humraahi keh dete
duniya ko thukraa ke
hum khenche huye aanchal nikle
jaise kahin lehraa ke pawan chanchal nikle
tod ke har zanjeer sitam hum chal nikle

aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
wahaan koi nahin apna
peechhe mud kar kya takna
wahaan koi nahin apna
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.

There were numerous reactions among my friends and relatives. The news channels were full of reactions by his co-actors, and people at high places starting with the President and Prime Minister of India. There were some tweets about how even the skies were crying at the passing away of this last of Prithviraj Kapoor’s sons- it was raining throughout the west coast of India.

Among the regulars of Atuldom Maheshji forwarded a link to a famous song of Mukesh which is lip-synced by Shashi Kapoor- waqt karta jo wafa. Another forward from our in-house encyclopaedia gave a peek into the life of this smart, handsome Kapoor with a collage of his photos and songs. To dispel any doubts about the genuineness of the news Avinashji sent us a link of Hindustan Times. All-in-all various reactions from the Atul family on the news of the death of a much-loved actor who just gave up his fight with illness. I was always shocked to see photos of an ill Shashi Kapoor, it used to be heart breaking.

The next day’s newspaperied carry reactions from all quarters; his biography about his birthplace, family; how he got into movies; how he met his wife, and how he didn’t recover from her death in the 1980s; list of his popular songs etc. I find that all those were songs which I love. They were all from commercially successful movies. But it seems Shashi’s main aspiration was to rebuild Prithvi Theatre and for this he did a lot of commercial movies- I remember reading a quote of his that he needed commercial movies to fund his needs of running a family, theatre and making the kind of movies which his heart was after. He was a producer of middle-of-the-road or New-Wave cinema as they used to be called.

For a song to accompany this post I am lost for choice (as usual I have a long mental list). But I choose this one from “Pyaar Kiye Jaa”. I had written out lyrics to this song to send it to Atulji in March this year, as is my practice, for Shashi’s birthday. But for some reason it just slipped from my mind. It is penned by Rajender Krishan and Laxmi- Pyare were the music directors with Mohd. Rafi’s playback. It shows Shashi in his element when teasing the ladies much like his song from “Haseena Maan jayegi”- ‘o dilbar jaaniye tere hai hum tere’ or any other song of that genre. His face and eyes convey his mischievousness. I feel like mentioning that his acting style and costumes were different from that any of the reigning superstars- Raj-Dilip-Dev or his own older brother Shammi Kapoor. He had a sense of rhythm (all the Kapoors have this quality) but his way of dancing was different.

Will have to look for him in his movies and songs henceforth…


Song-Gore haathon par na zulm karo (Pyaar Kiye Jaa)(1966) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

oye hoye
gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo
gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo
ho gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo
tumhaari kanwaari kalaayi ko
daag na lagey ae ae ae ae
o gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo

jaan-e-man in haathon mein toh
mehandi ka rang lagana hai ae
haay pyaar ki rangat se
tere naazuk ang ang sajna hai
hai kaun si aisi mazboori
jo husn kare yeh majdoori
tumhaari kanwaari kalaayi ko
daag na lage ae ae ae
gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo

mehlon ki tum raani ho
main preet nagar ka shehzaada aa
baant len ham kyun na dono
dhan apna aadha aadha
ham kaam kare tum raaj karo
manzoor toh haath pe haath dharo
tumhaari kanwaari kalaayi ko
daag na lage ae ae ae ae
gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo

gusse mein jo uljhi hai
aao toh woh lat main suljha doon oon
haaye chhede jo zulfein teri
uss shokh hawa ko rukva doon
dekho naa yoon aankhe mal mal ke
pad jaayenge dhabbe kaajal ke
tumhaari kanvaari kalaayi ko
daag na lage ae ae ae ae
gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo
o gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 4

This post under this series is not in chronological order as far as my ongoing reminiscences about Rajesh Khanna movies are concerned. But this post fits in this series about Rajesh Khanna. This particular movie “Chakravyooh”(1978) was critically acclaimed for the performance of Rajesh Khanna as also for ‘its offbeat story line’ which was at variance with typical Rajesh Khanna-romantic movies that we were used to.
