Hullo Atuldom

Today we are remembering a celebrity who began his life as a Professor of Civil Engineering in a Mumbai engineering college. A huge fan of Dilip Kumar, he was spotted by comedian Agha when he was performing in a play “Taash ke Pattey”. The play was recommended to Dilip saab who saw it, and signed this Professor/ stage actor for “Sagina” and “Bairaag”. This was the start of a career that spanned from the ’70s to 2019 – Govinda starrer Rangeela Raja released in 2019.

This post is about Kadar Khan who was born in Kabul to Afghan parents. He was educated in Mumbai and graduated as a civil engineer. His career as a writer in Bollywood took off when he was offered to co-write the script of “Jawaani Diwaani” by Narinder Bedi. This was followed by dialogue, script writing for over 200 films in addition to acting in around 300.

I am unable to decide if he was a better actor or writer. I am unable to decide if he evoked more emotion in the public as a villain or comic character actor. I am in love with his pairing with Govinda in both serious and comic roles. There are many movies to choose from where they have showcased their comic timing but that does not mean that they couldn’t emote serious situations. They have played grandfather -grandson in “Jaisi Karni Waisi Bharni”, father-n-son in “Haseena Maan Jaayegi”, “Sindoor”; father-in law son-in-law in “Dulhe Raja”. I don’t know if David Dhawan brought out the best in them. But it is to Rajesh Khanna’s credit that Manmohan Desai paid Kadar Khan handsomely for writing the dialogues of “Roti” in 1974.

I loved him as the lovable old man in “Gharwali Baharwali”, “Saajan Chale Sasural”, “Mr & Mrs Khiladi”. He was cute as the outwardly-submissive husband of Bindu in “Biwi Ho To Aisi”. He played a similar character with Shashikala as his wife in “Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani” (1988). He has played serious characters too as in “Yaarana”, “Adalat”, “Roti”, “Tohfa”- there is a whole list of such films.
He has had a few songs picturized on him in his long and illustrious career. Some have been philosophical and some have been funny. He has also tried to dance in some of these songs and it used to be rather cute to see.

In today’s song too, we see Kadar Khan play a slightly old character who is frustrated by the presence of a “Dhaaba” in the premises of his five star hotel. He has tried all possible tactics to evict the dhabbawala. The competition in the song is one such attempt.

This song is written by Sameer and Anand- Milind are the music composers. It is sung by Vinod Rathod and Sonu Nigam. The song has a lot of well-known couplets strung together rather imaginatively and that had made it appealing to the younger generation of that period. Besides being a song from my own ‘list of loved songs’ it also belonged to my dad’s list. He must have seen this movie every time it came on television and so have I. I am sure that the song was inspired by the song from “Padosan”- “ek chatur naar” going by the way the characters are emoting- all over the top.

The movie had Raveena Tandon as his daughter and Johnny Lever played Kadar Khan’s Man-Friday who is in cahoots with the dhabbawala -Govinda- who feels that he should be the “Dulhe Raja” of the hotel owner Singhania -played by Kadar Khan.

“Dulhe Raja” released on 10th July 1998. This was one of the 13 films that released in 1998 with Kadar Khan in the cast, he was definitely a busy 60-year old in that year.
