Hullo Atuldom

‘Pehli Baar’ (First Time) is a program that is aired on a channel of the DTH service that I am subscribed to. It gives background about how some celebrities met or got together for the first time ever. Of course the incidents, and content in that program is possibly stuff that many of us have read over the years over-and-over again, and also in all the Filmfares, Screen (the magazines of yesteryear), Star & Style, Stardust, Cine Blitz etc. that were available in all the circulating libraries of those times. Stories like how Nargis had batter in her hand when she opened the door for Raj Kapoor, how Balraj Sahni saw Johnny Walker mimicking actors as he sold tickets in Mumbai’s BEST buses etc.

When I write a post I try to bring songs from the first movie of the celebrity who I am focusing on. The ‘Pehli Baar’ of the artistes who have made a place in our hearts and minds. The Pehli Baar that I mentioned star-kid (now a grown-up man) Abhishek Bachchan in a post, must have been this song – “Happy Days Are Here Again“.

But that was not his debut in Hindi films, his debut was in JP Dutta’s ‘Refugee’ in 2000. The movie was also the first released film for Kareena Kapoor. Jackie Shroff, Suneil Shetty, Reena Roy, Anupam Kher, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Shadaab Khan (Amjad Khan’s son), Ashish Vidyarthi and a whole set of known faces forming the supporting cast were part of the film which was about a Muslim family from Bihar that had migrated to East Pakistan post the partition of India in 1947. But after the formation of Bangladesh in 1971 this family along with several such families are forced to relocate to West Pakistan. For this they choose the Dhaka-Guwahati-Delhi-Ajmer route. From Ajmer they go to Haji Peer in Pakistan through Bhuj in Rann of Kutch. In this endeavor they are assisted by an agent who is simply addressed as Refugee (Abhishek Bachchan). He normally is very impersonal when escorting people across the border and is unaware that he is assisting terrorists too. But he begins to like the daughter (Kareena Kapoor) of this family and keeps visiting her even after the family is settled into Pakistan. The rest of the movie talks about the hardships the lovers face due to involvement of the border security forces, terrorism in the region etc. And as in all JP Dutta movies there is exchange of fire, across the border, between the Indian and Pakistani forces and a thought provoking question at the close of the film when Kareena Kapoor delivers her baby in the no-man’s land area between the two nations.

‘Refugee’ was an average grosser at the box-office and both the debutantes got positive reviews too. Following its release Abhishek was seen in ‘Tera Jadoo Chal gaya’ and ‘Dhai Akshar Prem Ke’ in the same year. ‘Dhai Akshar Prem Ke’ was the Pehli Baar that we saw Aishwarya Rai with AB Jr. (as he is popular in the social media world). There were other 10-12 movies of AB Jr’s that released between 2000 and 2004, all of which were not-so-commercially successful. But most of them had the critics appreciating Abhishek. ‘Yuva’ (2004) by Mani Ratnam is a point in case. ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ (2005) and ‘Dhoom’ (2004 ) were his biggest successes in that period. He has been trolled (a term that is in vogue in this age and times) for being his parents’ son and wife’s husband for the past few years. But he is a person who has never responded to any of the negatives that are being thrown at him and has been quietly working with a movie of his releasing every year.

Let me clear my stand here:- I am his parents’ fan not his. But I really like his work and the sincerity with which he dances and emotes. I don’t think there is any harm in appreciating good work and Abhishek does have some good movies in his filmography. I have seen him switch between atrocious comedy and absolute serious scenes with ease in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Bol Bachchan’ (2012) and ‘Zameen’ (2003). He is definitely his parents’ son (and I am not mentioning it in a negative way here). He has been around for 22 years and nobody will invest money on a flop actor if he was not going to give good returns.

So let us wish him well on his birthday today.

I have a whole set of possible songs to go with this post, but I shall stick to AB Jr’s first screen appearance. ‘Refugee’ had six songs of which the following two are on the blog – “Aisa Lagta Hai Jo Na Hua Hone Ko Hai” and “Raat Ki Hathlei Par Chaand Jagmagaata Hai“.

The first song appeared almost 10 years ago. Here is the next. It is sung by Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik, written by Javed Akhtar and Anu Malik is the music director. The song shows the young lovers building their future home.

This is one of the songs of which made an impact at the time of watching the film.  I had seen this film ‘Phir bhi dil hai Hindustani’ in theatre.  This was before the multiplexes, so there were only the theatres, where the folks went to see the movie.

Now in multiplexes which are always above malls, there is the added temptation of shopping. This must be the reason, my husband is so reluctant to go to watch a movie. Over the last few years, I have also lost all interest in watching movies, altogether. As a weekend approaches, I am thinking I want to see this film or that film.  Some of those I have seen earlier or some which I have never seen. But the weekend comes and goes, without my attempting to watch them. There must be lot of reasons for this lack of motivation. For almost two months now, a 2017 movie’s link is sitting in the browser, but I have not watched it. Recently I even got my old laptop working so that I could watch some of the long pending movies and dramas. I saw a rerun of a few dramas, but new ones I am very reluctant to start. Sometimes I feel that there is a reluctance in me, to see newer things, which may supersede what has been seen earlier. It is strange, but there.

The film ‘Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani’ (2000) is a movie worth seeing or even revisiting for some of us who have seen it. Or the reviews of the film on the IMDB site make us believe. What I remember of the film is that SRK and Juhi are both television news presenters, and there is a lot of comic situations and romantic songs. Eventually they get embroiled in a nexus of politicians with the owners of the media channels, for whom they work. The song which is most endearing in the film is the title song “Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani“.  I had a general idea that the movie was ahead of its time and relevant to the electronic media’s role in the hyperbola of fear psychosis, that seems to surface every now and then.  I wrote about the role of media as a pawn in creation of propaganda in my essay ‘Corruption- A Global Phenomena’ in my post for the song “Apne Haathon Ko Pehchaan” from the 1960 film ‘Apna Haath Jagannath’.

Just recently I remembered the title song, looked for it and saw some other songs of the film including the group song which is the present post. The singers team is the old and trusted one, Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik with chorus. The song is very catchy and relevant to the party scene happening in the film. Reminds me of another song by the duo from ‘Yuvraj’ (2008) – “Mast Mast Dar Mastam“.

As I didn’t remember much about the film, and possibility of watching it soon is also remote, I visited the IMDB page.  The movie synopsis given there is quite lengthy and complicated.  Better to turn to reviews of which there are plenty.  Some of the reviews which were brief, I am reproducing here.

“This movie was way ahead of it’s time. . . and is highly underrated”

=====

“Movie was way ahead of its time. Couldn’t understand then why the film flopped may be because of overacting by SRK or Georgia’s effect. People expected a romcom but turned to be product which was attempted before in ‘Main Azad Hoon’. It is still reparable to today’s media circus where politics and media barons move hand in hand.”  (The meaning of “Georgia’s effect” is not known)

=====

“Way ahead of its time in the Indian context. Audiences in late 90s-early 2000s just wanted to see a romcom, especially if it featured SRK. The movie starts off that way but takes a political turn which exposes the nexus between people in power. It kind of displays the current situation in India in the year 2019. A lot of scenes would remind viewers of real-life situations that have occurred in the country over the past few years.  Maybe it was too much to take in for the viewers of the early 2000s, but this film would be a sure shot hit if it were to be released today or it may get banned in the country. Although, it does get too melodramatic in the final sequence.”

Certainly that this has been my own opinion all these years.  Every time we see a media circus, hypocrisy happening around, this was a recall sort of movie. A few of these reviews are giving the movie 10/10 rating.  Some are calling it highly underrated and a prelude to ‘Rang de Basanti’ (2006) etc. I personally feel it was less seriously tackled than ‘Rang De Basanti’, packaged more as a satirical comedy.

Song is very colourful for sure.  Jatin – Lalit are the composers and lyrics are by Javed Akhtar. On screen we see a few other artists, notably Satish Shah, Johnny Lever, Shakti Kapoor, Dalip Tahil, Dilip Doshi and others.
