Hullo Atuldom

Remembering today a producer- director who started his career in Bollywood in the year 1948. Our in-house encyclopaedia has already enlightened us that this was as a writer for an AR Kardar film of Filmistan. The other Filmistan movies that carry his name as writer are ‘Anarkali’ (1953), ‘Munimji’ (1955), and ‘Paying Guest’ (1957).

Recently Zee Classic ran a series which was hosted by the writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar called ‘Classic Legends’ which tried to give an insider’s view on the legendary film personalities. I happened to see the episode which featured this writer- producer- director or to put it in one phrase “Film Maker”.  Javed Saab talked about the various genres under which films are made in India and said that this particular film-maker made movies in a genre called ‘Rom-Com Musical’.

The person whom we are remembering today on his 15th death anniversary – Nasir Hussain, was one who thought up this kind of entertaining movies. But then we had ample doses of romance and comedy in all movies made in India and music is a must for our movies be they suspense thrillers or murder mysteries, or even vendetta movies.

Nasir Hussain gave us all these ingredients in equal measure in many of his movies. So, what if ‘Yaadon Ki Baarat’ (1973) was vendetta of a boy who witnessed his parents’ murder. We still had seven songs in the movie of which 3 were romantic. Similarly, ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966) had Asha Parekh trying to solve her sister’s death – so, it can be called a murder mystery. This movie too had 6 songs of which 2 were pure romantic numbers and one was a total comedy, in addition to all the situational comedy that kept occurring through the movie. Then he also made movies where the family gets separated in the first few minutes and then the poor protagonist -simply put ‘the hero’ – goes through the paces of the movie trying to look for his lost mother or father, wooing the wealthy heiress, singing a few songs in the process etc. Almost all of Nasir Hussain’s movies followed the same story in the sixties. He changed his storyline somewhat for ‘Caravan’ (1971) and ‘Bahaaron Ke Sapne’ (1967), later on in the mid-eighties we had ‘Manzil Manzil’ (1984) with the story of a separated family coming back together in the climax. The later part of the seventies had two Nasir Hussain movies with only romance and songs as their backbone – ‘Hum Kisise Kam Nahin’ (1977) and ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai’ (1981).

There were a few constants in Nasir Saab’s movies namely – Majrooh Sultanpuri, Asha Parekh, Rajendranath, and a character that used to walk-in swinging a racquet calling himself Subodh Mukherjee. Of course, from the 1966 ‘Teesri Manzil’ RD Burman was his constant for music direction, an association that lasted for almost 19 years till the 1984 ‘Zabardast’. Even when his son Mansoor Khan took over the direction of movies of Nasir Hussain Films ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ (1988) and ‘Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar’ (1992) Nasir Saab continued to write the script and dialogues. He was possibly the first to have back-to-back songs or four songs-in-a-row kind of situations – remember “Megha Re Bole Ghanan Ghanan” and “Bade Hain Dil Ke Kaale” (film ‘Dil Deke Dekho’, 1959). “Aap Ke Kamre Mein Koi Rehta Hai” (‘Yaadon Ki Baraat’, 1973) had three parts to it.  And then of course the foursome “Chaand Mera Dil“, “Aa Dil Kya Mehfil Hai Tere”, “Tum Kya Jaano Mohabbat Kya Hai” and “Mil Gaya Hum Ko Saathi” came all together in ‘Hum Kisise Kam Nahin’ (1977).

On going through the list of Nasir Hussain’s movies posted on our blog I find that many of his movies have already been Yippeee’d. ‘Hum Kisise Kam Nahin’ has been shown as having 5/6 songs posted. On reviewing the list, I found that the one song from the four-song medley has been posted. Which means it is not 5/6 but 5/9 posted.

Let us enjoy this second song from the dance competition medley. Not in this clip, but towards the end of the this four song medley, Amjad Khan also makes an entrance into this scene.

Thank you Nasir Saab for leaving us enjoyable movies

Missing Films of 1960s – 35

Her name is listed as the fourth lady music director in Hindi cinema. But then, that is where the comparison ends. The first three names considered are Ishrat Sultana, better known as Bibbo, then Jaddan Bai, and then we have Khorshed Minocher-Homji, more popularly known as Saraswati Devi. These stalwart composers from the earlier decades (1930s and 40s) of Indian cinema, were formally trained in Hindustani classical music, which also defined their style and the types of songs they composed.

Does the name Sunil Sikanderlal Kapoor ring a bell in our minds? No? But if I say “Nandu, sabka Bandhu”, will that help us to identify the person I am talking of? I think the answer will be yes, by some of the regulars in the blog. Now one more famous line from this actor—“main crime master GO-GO, ankhen nikal ke goti kheloonga”. I can quote so many of his dialogues that I will stop here or the readers will say –“Samajhta nahin hai yaar” (she is boring us). Now I am sure that all of you would have come pretty close to identifying the actor who celebrated his 58th birthday yesterday (3rd September).

Often repeated, and I will repeat yet once again. The B/C grade films of yesteryears may not have had the fortune or resources to get noticed by the audience and critics, and yet, as one digs into these categories of films for music, invariably one comes up with A grade gems with absolutely A grade music and lyrics. So many composers have had their work relegated to obscurity, just because the films they composed for did not become commercial success stories.

I would not go so far as to say that I have learnt to appreciate art and culture as I have grown old. I am still very much a novice when it comes to appreciating these finer aspects of life.
What I will say though is that my taste in Hindi movies and songs has evolved considerably since my childhood or school days.

I have a catgory of songs in this blog called “dance competition” songs. In this category, typically two dancers compete against each other. This has led to some superb dance competitions between dancers of formidable reputations.

Madan Mohan is often associated with serious ghazal songs sung by Lata. But Madan Mohan has composed all kinds of songs including light hearted and non serious songs sung by several singers. In fact, the Madan Mohan song that climbed the highest in Binaca Geetmala annual charts in his lifetime was not a ghazal by Lata but a mela song by Asha Bhonsle. It was the hugely popular Jhumka gira re Bareli ke bazaar me from “Mera Saayaa” (1966).
