[Ed Note: Delayed by 3 days on our account, this post was received in email just past midnight on 17th March. It should have posted on 18th. The reference to the dates in the article should be taken from 17th March.]

Hullo Atuldom

18th March 2012 was the first time I sent a contribution to Atulji in the form of lyrics of one of Deewaar’s songs – “Maine Tujhe Maanga Tujhe Paaya Hai“. That happened to be Shashi Kapoor’s 74th birthday. That post also marked 300 songs of Sahir Ludhianvi on the blog. It is nine years since then and we touched 700 songs of Sahir on the blog recently. That was post number 5655 for the blog considering that we had touched 2900 on 3rd September 2010 and those days the blog was chugging along at a great speed.

Ever since 2012 March I have tried, rather inconsistently, to send in a post for Shashi Kapoor’s birthday. My last post for the occasion was in 2019, the song being “Kya Karoon Mujhko Time Nahin“. As I re-read that post I found that the first time I participated on the blog was as a commentor (I was a pillion rider to Peevesie that day when she wrote that comment) for a Shashi Kapoor song.

The first Amitabh song that I wrote a post for was, I think, the friendship song of Suhaag. I am glued to the idiot box whenever there is an Shashi Kapoor-Amitabh Bachchan movie playing and I have been indulged by a certain channel of the DTH provider who played ‘Namak Halal’ (1982) and ‘Suhaag’ (1979) yesterday.

As I am writing this post, that particular channel is showing ‘Chori Mera Kaam’ (1975) of which I have very vague memories of, having seen it in the ’70s. The things that I remember is Deven Verma’s character which was called Praveen Bhai, Zeenat Aman and Shashi trying to outsmart each other and because this was a movie directed by Brij it had interesting roles for Ashok Kumar and Pran. It had great music by Kalyanji Anandji.

He must have been a great co-actor as we have seen him with Shatrughan Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar, Rekha, Hema Malini, Rakhee, Zeenat Aman, Sharmila Tagore, Parveen Babi and so many others. But we can’t forget his pairing with Nanda in the ’60s with whom he featured in 8 films.

He began his career playing the childhood of Raj Kapoor in ‘Awaara’ (1951) etc. and had his first adult role in Yash Chopra’s ‘Dharmaputra’ (1961) going on to act in almost 116 movies of which 60 were solos and 55 multi-starrers. He was a Padma Bhushan winner and was honored with the Dadasaheb Phalke award in 2014, for his contribution to Hindi Cinema.

He was a filmmaker who made movies that were not in the commercial format and got the likes of Shyam Benegal, Govind Nihalani, Aparna Sen, Girish Karnad to direct it. And he used to say that he acted in the regular masala movie so that he could finance the kind of movies that he liked to offer his fans.

I was reminded of today’s song thanks to ‘Chori Mera Kaam’. No, I haven’t discovered any hidden song in that movie. We have already Yippeee’d it. It reminded me of the Zeenat Aman – Shashi Kapoor films. ‘Chori Mera Kaam’ was followed by 10 films like ‘Vakil Babu’ (1982), ‘Bandhan Kachhe Dhaagon Ka’ (1983) etc.

There was this 1983 masala movie ‘Pakhandi’ directed by Samir Ganguly. It had Shashi Kapoor- Zeenat Aman -Asha Parekh- Sanjeev Kumar leading a cast with Ranjeet, Jagdeep, Helen, Leela Mishra as supporting cast. The song is the handiwork of Majrooh Sultanpuri-Laxmi-Pyare-Asha Bhonsle-Kishore Kumar. The video shows Zeenat and Shashi Kapoor participating in a DANCE COMPETITION!!!! Shashi Kapoor dancing???? I will not say that he was a bad dancer but definitely not in the same league as his brother Shammi Kapoor or his nephew Rishi Kapoor. He had a sense of rhythm like his other brother Raj Kapoor and no ‘two- left-feet’ issue like his contemporary Dharmendra. And this song has choreography very different from what we generally see Shashi do. It has prompted me to put this masala movie in my to be seen list.

Blog Day : 4621 Post No. : 16266

Hullo Atuldom

There is a popular movie of the late ’70s, that has had a rather slow journey through the blog. With this post I hope to bring it to the YYIIPPEEEE station.

It began its journey on the blog with its most iconic song. A song that gave its singer -the legend Mohd. Rafi the National Award for best singer as well as that year’s Filmfare award. The song sort of put all doubting Thomas(es) in their place.

The post for the song “Kya Hua Tera Waada, Wo Qasam Wo Iraada“was the 2900th of the blog written by Santosh Ojha.

The next post on the song “Ye Ladka Haaye Allah Kaisa Hai Deewaana” by Rajaji spoke of his experience of how he had seen the movie in 1977 and gave a link to his own blog and what he had written there-in in 2008. (Cannot find that blog now )

The third and fourth songs from this movie came one-after-the other as part of Nahm ji’s series where she presented Rafi saab’s songs in alphabetical order:- “Chaand Mera Dil, Chaandni Ho Tum” for the song beginning with ‘C’ and “Hai Agar Dushman Dushman, Zamaana Gham Nahin” as the song beginning with ‘H’.

Then came this post – “Bachna Ae Haseeno, Lo Main Aa Gaya” – a highly educative post by our Sudhir ji on ‘How a song is born’.

The next came the song “Aa Dil Kya Mehfil Hai Tere Qadmon Mein, a post by yours truly exactly three years back. I had tried to express what I liked about the movie and its maker.

The post for one of the songs in the medley “Mil Gaya Humko Saathi Mil Gaya” was a surprise. It was by our in-house encyclopedia; a biographical write up from a person who is a store house of information.

The last post for this film, was for the song “Hum Ko Yaara Teri Yaari“, as a part of 10-year challenge 2010-2020.

So then these are the eight out of nine songs from ‘Ham Kisi se Kam Nahin’ (1977) that are present in our blog. We are having the ninth and final song today on the 18th remembrance day of its maker Nasir Hussain. This is the third song in the four song medley scene. It is sung by RD Burman, set to tune by RD Burman himself, and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. It has Tariq lip-syncing on screen. The sequence comes to a close with an excellent music piece where we see the two males trying to beat each other in the dance competition which Rishi Kapoor wins as Tariq gives up when he sees Kajal Kiran and Rishi Kapoor together.

Ending this post with a thanks to Nasir Hussain for all the entertainment his films have provided to Hindi film fans.

Blog Day : 3525 Post No. : 14162

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.
