Hullo to all in Atuldom

“Maan Gaye Ustaad”(1981) was a Shibu Mitra directed movie.

Chandan Singh (Pran) is a farmer who lives in a village called Ramgarh along with his wife, Malti (Sonia Sahni), and two children, Munna and Munni. One day Malti gets molested by three city goons, Jaikishan (Ajit), Rajan, and Banoo (Rajan Haksar). Chandan intervenes, but is attacked, and Malti is shot dead. The children get separated, while Munna is adopted by a Muslim male named Abba (Om Prakash) and is re-named Shera, Munni is adopted by a Hindu family and re-named Geeta.

Years later the three estranged family members are fated to meet again – this time Geeta is a con-woman, who has a con-man boyfriend, Kishan (Shashi Kapoor), who is on the lookout for the man who killed his photographer brother (Chandrasekhar), and believes that Chandan is the killer; while Chandan, who is now known as Chandan Dada, a hoodlum, has been arrested for killing a man named Rajan; while Shera, a hit-man and hoodlum himself, has feigned his arrest, after accepting a contract from none other than Jaikishan – to kill Chandan!!

The movie then goes through the normal way of first bringing the family together with the help of the song that the father had taught his children before calamity struck the family and they got separated.

The movie was almost like a show case for Pran. He had a song filmed on him and that song appeared three times in the movie. He got to take revenge from the villains, had a beautiful wife in Sonia Sahni, and he also got a qawwali which was a competition between him and Amjad Khan.

But this is not the only movie where he had songs to emote too. We have loved him with Ashok Kumar in so many songs, and I am sure everyone will agree that the most entertaining one was in “Victoria No. 203” – “do bechare bina sahaare dekho pooch pooch kar hare”.

But one cannot forget him with Kishore Kumar either- “Aake seedhi dil pe katariya oh sawariya” (Half Ticket) or Amitabh Bachchan – “Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi”.

And we should not forget that Pran’s innings as a “good” character artist began with his “malang chacha” mouthing “kasme vaade pyaar wafa sab baatein hai” “in Upkaar”.

He began his filmi career in pre-independence era with Yamla Jat, Khajanchi, Chaudhary etc in Lahore in Punjabi. His Hindi film run began with “Khandaan” (1942. Here I feel like mentioning the other “Khandan” (1965) where he played a villain to make the life of the hero Sunil Dutt miserable.

His career in Bombay (Mumbai of today) started with “Ziddi” which was also a break for DevAnand and by 1950 Pran was a premier villain in Bollywood. He was the most sought-after villain opposite Dilip- Raj- Dev through the 50s and 60s. We have seen him being mean to every other hero of that period Dharmendra, Rajendra Kumar, Manoj Kumar, and any other hero we can think of (I am not going into the Roster of the heroes of the sixties here).

During this period, he had a brief role in Manoj Kumar’s “Shaheed” which was not a negative character.

But post “Upkaar” he had a second image change and we could see him as a good grandfather “Parichay”, friend “Zanjeer” “Guddi” “Beimaan” etc alongwith being the badman.

He had a style all his own be it in getting into various getups that went with the character he played or the blowing of smoke rings and holding the cigar or cigarette in a different way I each movie. There are many present-day character actors- Gulshan Grover for example- who swear on Pransaab being their role model much the same way as heroes copy Dilip- Raj- Dev. 🙂

He would have been celebrating his 98th birthday today (12 February 2018). I just could not get this date go by without we posting a song filmed on Pransaab. For today’s song Mohd. Rafi has given his voice alongwith Dilraj Kaur and Chandrani Mukherjee. This song appears about three times in the movie- once in happy times when Chandan Singh is the family man and farmer, once when he is so “good” a prisoner that the jailor Ashok Kumar trusts him to let him play around the jail with his grandson. And finally, at the climax of the movie when his (now grownup) children are tied up by the villain (I am unable to locate that video).

Today also happens to be the birthday of a person who became a friend thanks to this blog. We know him as Avinash Scrapwala. Here I would also like to wish him all the very best in life. Best wishes are also due to another Atulwaasi- Nitin Shah and his wife celebrate their Wedding Anniversary today. Here is wishing them long years of togetherness.

leadar neta kya ban’na hai
banoonga khidmatgaar
paida karoonga sabke dil mein

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is from a film called ‘College Girl’ from 1978.  It is produced by Shantilal Soni and directed by SD Narang. The star cast includes Sachin, Bindiya Goswami, Rita Bhadhuri, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Urmilla Bhatt, Paintal, Bhagwan, Heena Kausar, Sudhir, Shobhana Shah, Jagdish Raj, Karan Diwan, Chand Usmani amongst others.

The film has seven songs of which the most famous is “Pyar Manga Hai Tumhi Se Na Inkaar Karo” which is sung by Kishore Kumar and written by Indeevar. This is already posted on our blog. Another song by Mohd. Rafi “Phoolon Ki Tarah Wo Hansti Thi” which is penned by Dev Kohli has also been posted. And I agree with Atul ji, as he has written in that post – If Bappi Lahiri’s songs like this did not get popular then one should not blame him for later on composing songs of the nature that required less creativity but yielded rich dividends for him.”

Now here is the third song from the movie. This is another surprise from Bappi Lahiri. First, it is a bhajan and he has Bharat Vyas (!!!) as the lyricist. Ok it is in Yesudas’s voice, not surprising as Yesudas has sung for Bappi Lahiri in ‘Lahu Ke Do Rang’ and ‘Haisiyat’. But when I came across this song the surprises didn’t end. The song is lip-synced by Dr. Shriram Lagoo. I can think of only one or two other movies where Shriram Lagoo has had songs to lip sync – one in ‘Dooriyan – “Khota Paisa Nahin Chalega” (playback by KN Sharma) and the other in ‘Kinaara’ – “Meethe Bol Boley Boley Paayaliya“(playback by Bhupinder).

The bhajan starts at the home and then the family proceeds to a temple which reminds me of a temple attached to an ashram in Mumbai’s Vile Parle area, which I have frequented a number of times before marriage. It was a very peaceful place with lot of space for us children to run about. Going by what we see in the song it looks like Bindiya is sad about something as her eyes are constantly moist and Rita Bhadhuri looks like the more playful of the two sisters. Chandrani Mukherjee’s is the female voice in this song.

Yesterday, 10th January was Yesudas’ birthday. He turned 77. He is a maestro of classical music and is a huge fan of his guru Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavathar, Dr. M Balamurali Krishna and Mohd Rafi. Having started his playback career in the 60s in Malayalam followed by the other South Indian languages his Hindi debut came in 1971; though the first movie that released with a song sung by him is ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ in 1976 followed by ‘Chitchor’. He then went on to sing for many Bollywood movies. He has been awarded the Padmashri, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan. He has won the national award seven times for best playback singing. He has sung in almost all Indian languages except Konkani, Assamese and Kashmiri. Just as the “Venkateswara Suprabhatam”, the good morning shloka played at Balaji temple in Tirupathi, is associated with MS Subbalakshmi, “Harivarasanam” – the good night shloka played at Ayyappa Temple in Sabarimala – is in the voice of KJ Yesudas.

Wishing a belated happy birthday to the ‘Gana Gandharva Dasettan’, as the Malayalees love to address him, alias Yesudas.

Song – Nahin Chaahiye Rang Mahal (College Girl) (1978) Singer – Yesudas, Chandrani Mukherji, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Bappi Lahidi
Yesudas + Chandrani

Lyrics

nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan
ki ghar ghar me khushhali ho
sada sukh ki haryali hooo
nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

tu ne humko janam diya hai
tu hi paalan haar
teri daya se phoole phale
hum sab ka ghar sansaar
tu ne humko janam diya hai
tu hi paalan haar
teri daya se phoole phale
hum sab ka ghar sansaar
nahi chahiye heere moti. . .
nahi chahiye heere moti
na ratnon ki khaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

sukh ke badle dukh dene ki
agar bhawana teri
dukh ko sehne ki shakti de
yahi prarthana meri
sukh ke badle dukh dene ki
agar bhawana teri
dukh ko sehne ki shakti de
yahi prarthana meri
kisi ke aage hath na phailaayen. . .
apni mehnat ka sukh paaye
itna de vardaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan
ki ghar ghar me khushhali ho
sada sukh ki haryali ho
nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

नहीं चाहिए रंग महल
ना धन दौलत की शान
हम तो मांगें तुझसे मालिक

यही प्रार्थना मेरी
सुख के बदले दुख देने की
अगर भावना तेरी
दुख को सहने की शक्ति दे
यही प्रार्थना मेरी
किसी के आगे हाथ ना फैलाएँ॰॰॰

I have heard this song after some 20 years or so today. A regular song on Vividh Bharati. They played both Rafi Sahab and Chandrani Mukherjee’s versions frequently. Like many of those Rafi and Lata solo version songs, this one too is in memory, with one line following the other in the mind. So typing the lyrics is fast work. I thought the female version must be Lata’s. But it turns out that the female singer is Chandrani Mukherjee, who is gamely trying to match Rafi sahab pitch for pitch. On radio she sounded a lot better than on the ear phones on which I heard it now. The ear phones have no heart and no mercy for even the greatest of singers, so none are spared.

“Kitne Paas Kitne Door” (1976), though a recent movie by the standards of this blog, has ended up becoming quite an obscure movie by now. This movie, when it was released in 1976 went unnoticed.

Today (22 september) is the birthday of Ranjeeta, an actress who made her Hindi movie duet in 1976 with “Laila Majnu”. Born in 1956, she acted in movies like “Pati Patni Aur Wo” (1978), “Ankhiyon Ke Jahrokhon Se” (1978), “Aap To Aise Na Thhe” (1980), “Satte Pe Satta”(1982), “Teri Kasam” (1982) etc. In late 1970s and early 1970s, she paired up with Mithun Chakraborty in several “spy” movies.
