Hullo Atuldom

The last time I had written a post for Mother’s Day was in 2016 – Mere chehre mein chhupa hai meri maa ka chehra . In that post I had mentioned how the idea of mother’s day came about. This day has been celebrated in the USA since 1914 as per a proclamation by Woodrow Wilson declaring the second Sunday of May as Mother’s Day.

As far as Indians are concerned everyday is Mother’s Day. Only thing is in the last few decades, with the increase in number of youngsters staying away from their families for studies or work or whatever reason, Mother’s Day is another day that we have started aping the west. We find youngsters definitely calling their mothers to wish, and some even send her some gifts.

There are numerous messages that will flood the social media on Mother’s Day. But a Mother will normally wait only for her children’s messages i.e. if it is not possible for the children to be physically present with her. Then there will be some somber message that will say “learn to appreciate your mother, for some are not as blessed as you”. And still others will say “what does she ask for, only a smile or a message that you are fine”. In all these years of being active on social media, I have not come across any message whose wordings have remained in my memory. But what I have stated above is the general gist of messages that will be in our INBOX on this Sunday, it being the second Sunday of May 2021.

And we must salute the mothers of the modern era. The amount of juggling that they need to do so that the schedule of the family is not upset. And most mothers also are earning members of the family. Till atleast a generation before us, these women who were working to earn, so as to supplement the family income, were seen preparing all meals for the family before they themselves left for their work. And on returning home head straight to the kitchen to make dinner and also engage the children with their studies and attend to whatever other responsibilities that she was meant to do. Being a mother had become a though job, and any lady who was not an expert at that kind of juggling was looked down upon.

In my student days, I used to commute by the Mumbai local trains and I have seen ladies shelling PEAS, cleaning coriander etc in the train. There were (don’t know if this is still happening in the trains) enterprising hawkers who used to sell vegetables and fruits, procured from the markets on the local trains of Mumbai. And to be honest, it must have been helpful to the lady travelers as it may have saved them shopping time.

I also know of mothers who have given up on well paying jobs so that they can devote all their attention to the family and children. These ladies doubled up as private tutors so that they didn’t waste their free time and could still contribute monetarily to the family.

And let me not miss talking about a generation of mothers, who are currently in their 80s and beyond. These ladies may not have been as fortunate, as say even the current 50/60 – year old mothers, in terms of getting beyond class 10 in education. But these ladies too, have reared a generation of individuals and instilled values of humanity, taught their children the importance of education and being good citizens – gender no bar. My mother would not have felt proud of her children’s achievements if my grandmother had not encouraged her to study and complete her graduation in spite of being married and a mother to 4 growing up children.

If my mother had been there she would have wished my grandmother just as me and my siblings would have fussed over our mother and my children pamper me on mother’s day. This is the day I also thank the mother in my mother-in-law for being my go-to person whenever I am in trouble, upset or celebrating. I simply love to be around her and learn how she has lived 74 years of her life as a mother.

Mothers have a special place in Indian stories and as an extension of these stories in Indian cinema too. We have movies titled “Maa” (three in our blog itself), “Maa Beta”, “Maai Baap”, “Maa aur Mamta”, “Maa Baap” (two movies with this title in our blog) etc.

In addition we have the classic “Mother India” where the lady had a powerful place in the life of her family members. Saw this movie, recently, with a conscious mind. I was amazed at the strength of the character that Nargis played. This lady could plough her field along side her husband and sons. She wielded a lathi when her son went out-of-line and her teachings; as also on the mean-money minded- lala (moneylender) when he misbehaved with her. This mother-character was a lady made of steel and didn’t tolerate when her son went on to abduct a bride of the village and didn’t hesitate to shoot him in spite of him being her son.
I have seen and read interviews of actresses of the next generation and they all used to say that they want at least one role in there life like the one Nargis played in “Mother India” and realized only now the full meaning of the wish of all these later year actresses.

But that is another story, let us get to today’s song. It is from the 1970 release “Mastaana”. This movie was directed by A. Subba Rao, produced by Premji, had seven songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmi-Pyare. It had a cast headed by Mehmood- Padmini- Bharati- Vinod Khanna and had Shyama, Rehman, Mukri, Leela Mishra, Manorama, Jayshree T., Ramesh Deo, wonder- child (that is how it was in the movie’s titles) Bobby etc. It was an emotional movie showing the bond between a poor-honest man Satya (Mehmood) and Naintara (Baby Bobby) a child of rich parents who misses having her parents when she needs them the most. The movie is a must-see for all Mehmood fans as he was too good in the emotional scenes. This is one of the movies (the other being ‘Lakhon Mein Ek’) where he makes his audience shed a tear or two in addition to making us laugh.

This song is sung by the child Naintara as a stage song at her school’s Parents Day. The parents don’t have time to attend the programme and depute the child’s nanny (Manorama). The child, on her part, takes Satya along for the program and Satya on his part sits in the aisle. The playback for this song is by Lata Mangeshkar.
Salutation and Best wishes to all mothers. Awaiting Father’s Day (in about a month).

Editor’s note-With this song, Anand Bakshi silently completes 1100 songs in the blog as a lyricist. Only the third lyricist (after Rajinder Krishan and Majrooh Sultanpuri) to touch this mark in the blog.


Song-Maine maa ko dekha hai (Mastaana)(1970) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

maine maa ko dekha hai,
dekha hai maa ko dekha hai
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine phool toh dekhe hain,
dekhe hain phool toh dekhe hain
phoolon ka haar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai

waise toh ghar mein maa ki tasveer hai ae ae
waise toh ghar mein maa ki tasveer hai
lekin meri kab aisi taqdeer hai
kabhi jo ghabraaoon,
gale se lag jaaoon
agar naa neend aaye

mera mann jiska pyaasa hai
pyaasa hai jiska pyaasa hai
woh laad dulaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai

waise meri maa ka dil toh sakht nahin ee ee
waise meri maa ka dil toh sakht nahin
par uske paas zara bhi waqt nahin
hai uska naam bada
hai usko kaam bada
woh devi mamta ki,
hai leader janta ki
maa ke photo ke bina,
bina ji photo ke bina
koi akhbaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai

pyaari pyaari hai woh bholi aisi hai ae ae
pyaari pyaari hai woh bholi aisi hai
kal aaya se poochha baby kaisi hai
meri maa sachchi hai,
badi hi achchi hai
yeh uska dosh nahin
use kuchh hosh nahin
maa ne duniya dekhi hai,
dekhi hai duniya dekhi hai
ghar sansaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,

maine phool toh dekhe hain
dekhe hain phool toh dekhe hain
phoolon ka haar nahin dekha,

Hullo Atuldom

Here is a song from “Chambal Ki Raani” (1979) which was directed by Radhakant produced by Raghunandan (censor certificate on 2.11.1979).

It had a cast of Mahendra Sandhu, Bindu, Dara Singh, Jagdeep, Narendranath, Chand Usmani, Amjad Khan, Kamal Kapoor & Urmila Bhatt (in special appearances), etc. It had music by Naushad. Jan Nissar Akhtar & Majrooh Sultanpuri were the lyricists. The movie had only Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd. Rafi for playback.

The movie was dedicated to Jan Nissar Akhtar and Krishan Chandar. To find out who Krishan Chandar was I looked up the copy of the movie available on YouTube. He was the writer of this movie.

The title is a giveaway of the story of the movie viz. Dacoit story. What I saw on Youtube only confirms this. The movie has a pre-titles scene of Chambal -the river- lamenting the state of affairs in her region. There is a raid by the dacoit party led by Dara Singh in a village, set in pre-independence era, where a informer is shown to be shot dead by Daaku Lakhan Sardar. Whereas Daaku Ajmer Singh played by Amjad Khan is shown to loot people by hoodwinking people into thinking that he is a cop. So that then establishes the story which will eventually turn out like all the other Daaku movies of that time:- lots of horses, chases, kothas, rakhi sister, a few songs to divert the attention of the opposition etc.

Bindu played Chameli a dancer (what else) and has atleast two dance numbers which are in the mujra genre (again -what else!!Emoji). The song in this post was rather popular in its time and even now played on Prasar Bharati’s Vividh Bharati radio channel very often. It is one of the songs which I have heard for a lifetime without knowing what movie or any other details till today. It is sung by Lata, written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Naushad Ali was the composer.

We are paying tribute to the legendary composer with this post on his 15th remembrance anniversary. I am not competent enough to comment on his works but over the years I have discovered that I loved many of his songs during my growing-up years without being aware about their creators. Songs like “suhaani raat dhal chuki”, “mere mehboob tujhe mere mohabbat ki kasam”, “awaz de kahaan hai”, :jawaan hai mohabbat” etc and hundred others from the late 40s and of the following decades. It was much later I learnt who the music director for these gems were. Possibly, by that time, Naushad Saab had stopped being on centre stage of Bollywood music but he still came up with scores in movies like “Ganwaar”, “Pakeezah”, “Taangewala” etc at the rate of one movie every other year or so. He even produced a few movies and “Taj Mahal- an eternal love story” in 2005 directed by Akbar Khan was the last released work that is a long journey of 65 years as his first independent work, according to various sites on the internet, was in 1940. He began by assisting Ustaad Jhande Khan, Mushtaq Hussain and such big names of that time before “Prem Nagar” happened in 1940.

Thanking the legend for the legacy that he has left behind.

Hullo Atuldom

At the outset let me admit that I was reminded of today’s song a few days back when I was writing the post for Moushumi Chatterjee’s birthday.

Today’s song is from the 1980 released Raj Khosla directed Moushumi Chatterjee- Rishi Kapoor starrer “Do Premee”. It had a cast of Om Prakash, I S Johar, Deven Verma, Col. Kapoor (also went by the name Raj Bharati), Geeta Bahl, Aruna Irani, Roopesh Kumar etc.

The movie was a standard love story where the young couple are children of fathers who are not friends. Retd. Col. Bhagwant Singh (Om Prakash) goes to the extent of getting Payal (Moushumi) engaged to Roopesh Kumar but of course the couple elope and reach Mumbai. They take up jobs as driver and maid in a rich girl’s household (of course both are not aware that they are employed by the same person). This rich girl (Geeta Bahl) looks after her family business and also visits a guru (played by Raj Bharati). He has a huge ashram and is shown to perform miracles like walking on water etc. The guru also has a secret attached to his ashram and Deven Verma (a cop in plain-clothes) is out to crack the mystery. Meanwhile the fathers reconcile their differences and come looking for their children and save them from the captivity of the guru in the climax for a All-is-well ending.

The movie had six songs of which the blog has two both of which were posted in 2018.

Mausam pe jaaani hai (a very popular song of the movie)
and
Ladki waalon ki taraf se ladke aalon ko mubaarak ho

The songs were written by Anand Bakshi, composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal, sung by Anuradha Paudwal, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and Mohd. Rafi.

Today we are having a duet by Mohd Rafi and Anuradha Paudwal. It shows the young couple being playful with each other. The song was decently popular in its time.

Today we are thinking of Chintu on his first anniversary. Unbelievable that it is an year. He was a person who was on his way to recovery from cancer and had gone to Delhi for a shoot when the Pandemic hit the country. He returned to Mumbai when the lock-down was announced. We saw him on news channels when the country did the candle lighting and clapping (thali bajaoing) for the Pandemic warriors. Must say that he looked a pale shadow of his former self but the child-like enthusiasm and his charming smile was there for all to see.

Chintu (Rishi Kapoor) was rather active on social media and didn’t dither from stating his mind. In the last decade or so he was seen in a variety of roles:- an underworld don in “D-Day”, a grand old 90-year man in “Kapoor & Sons”; even a 75-year-old son to a 100 year-old Amitabh Bachchan in “102 not out”. A lot more would have come for us -his fans- but for the exit which came a year ago on this date. It was a sad day for many of his colleagues, fans and most of all his near and dear ones.

I am waiting to see what happened to that last movie that he was shooting in New Delhi before the Pandemic.

Missing this actor who acted from the age of two and half years to 63.

Hullo Atuldom

It has been a year and half since the world is fighting a Pandemic. This post by Avinashji set me thinking. He has listed disasters that have been hitting the world and how this pandemic is different from other disasters.
And we have lost many great artists and common people to this pandemic. Every person I know has someone whom they know testing positive of the virus. There have been cases where people have lost a loved one, a friend, an acquaintance etc. to the severity of the disease. Even I have lost a well-respected and loved aunt. We are sad or shocked when we hear of such deaths. And these are unexpected exits of people effected by the virus.

But what about those who died due to a long suffering ailment. Just when we get a news of the person being on the road to recovery we get follow ups about the person having been rushed to the hospital and that his condition is deteriorating. This is what happened with actor Irrfan Khan.

It was disclosed in March 2018 that he had been diagnosed with the dreaded ‘C’ and he went to the UK for treatment. He returned in 2019 and everything seemed to have settled to normalcy. We saw him complete “Angrezi Medium” (2020) which was apparently a sequel to his 2017 release “Hindi Medium”.

It is already an year since we lost a very good actor. Unbelievable. Isn’t it?

He was a good actor who made his debut in the entertainment world about the same time as Shahrukh, Salman and Aamir Khan. He too, started with a role in the doordarshan serials “Shrikant”, “Bharat Ek Khoj”, “Chanakya etc. At the same time he was seen in ‘almost’ bit roles in movies like “Salaam Bombay”, “Kamla Ki Maut”, “Ek doctor ki maut” etc. He was seen in some negative roles too. After about 10 years of working in parallel cinema he was offered the roles alongside Raveena Tandon, Shabana Azmi, Lisa ray, and other actors of commercial value, though most of these would be of a supporting actor or what is called character artist. He has also worked in a few English movies and dubbed or provided voice-over for ‘Baloo, the bear’ in the Hindi version of the “Jungle Book”. He was an accomplished actor whose commercial worth was never exploited to its fullest and now it is not possible.

In the wake of his passing away, many videos popped up, on various social media platforms, where we see him taking centre stage with Shahrukh Khan at a Filmfare Awards Nite. I am sure those are scripted acts and we see him putting on SRK style acts. we see him saying that given a chance even he would like to woo girls and have them fall in love with him.

He did have a few movies that can be called commercial as they had insane stories that essentially entertain the audience and help forget their troubles in the darkness of a cinema hall for the duration of the movie. Movies like “Thank You” (2011), “D-Day” (2013), “Piku” (2015), “7 Khoon Maaf” (2011), “Right Yaa Wrong” (2010), “Billu” (2009) etc. He may not have been the main lead in these but he had roles of substance and he was well appreciated.

In the run up to this post I went through a whole lot of movies where Irrfan was featured and looked for songs where he has lip synced. I must say that there are a few melodious songs filmed on him but only one or two where he actually gets to mouth the words of the song. I have settled for a song that may not be a connoisseurs’ delight but has Irrfan even shaking a leg. It is from the hardly-known movie “Dil Kabaddi” (2008) which had a cast of Soha Ali Khan, Konkona Sen, Payal Rohatgi, Rahul Khanna, Rahul Bose and Irrfan Khan.

I heard the song for the first time as I wrote the post. I must say that the lyricist must be a common man like most of us and not from the family of Ghalib or even Majrooh Sultanpuri, Anand Bakshi or Gulzar. He has used common place words and I am surprised that it didn’t register in the minds of the young brigade of movie lovers. Possibly because the movie didn’t have big names and it got lost in the crowd of popular releases of that year which had better publicity machinery in place.

The movie dealt with the lives of two modern day married couples caught in a web of boredom, loss of love and temptation. I vaguely recall catching the movie on some channel, ages back. It had Rahul Bose and Konkona as one couple and Irrfan and Soha Ali as the other. Payal Rohatgi was the “TEMPTATION”. It seems the movie was inspired by a Woody Allen movie. Sachin Gupta and Dhruv Dhalla were the music directors and Virag Mishra was the lyricist. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan played himself in the movie and sang a song written by himself. Of the playback singers listed for the movie I can only recognize Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Monali Thakur and Mika Singh. Today’s song is in the vocals of Poroma Bannerji, Monali Thakur and Jaspreet Singh.

(I know we have knowledgeable Atulites who will have information about all the new names of singers, music directors and lyricist in my post)
Thinking of an actor who went too soon.

Hullo Atuldom

My last post on the blog mentioned that Moushumi Chatterjee had co-starred Vinod Khanna in a few movies. Today’s song is from one such movie.

“Hatyara” (The Murderer- 1977) was a movie which was directed by Surendra Mohan and produced by Sunil Sharma and J.R. Shah. Its cast consisted of Vinod Khanna (in a double role), Priyadarshini, Moushumi Chatterjee, Rakesh Roshan, as the romantic couples and Pran, Nirupa Roy, Raj Mehra, Chand Usmani as the elders, Kanhaiyalal, Manmohan, Dev Kumar were the spoilsports of the story. The cast also has Abhi Bhattacharya, Shahu Modak (in a blink and miss appearance), Gulshan Bawra and Rajesh Khanna in a special appearance. Pradeep Kumar, Mehmood and Laxmi Chhaya in guest appearances.

Pran and Predeep Kumar played bandits, who accidentally kill a man leaving his wife and son destitute. This sets Daulat Singh (Pran) thinking that it is easy to kill but difficult to rectify the “PAAP”. He surrenders and reforms. He returns from jail to a family of grownup children who are in love and he is only too glad to get the kids married. The hitch or stumbling block for him (Daulat Singh) is his past has caught up with him in the form of Inspector Prakash (Rakesh Roshan) whose mother (Nirupa Roy) recognizes the bandit and refuses to get her son married to a bandit’s daughter. The rest of the story is run-of-the-mill where the families go through the twists and turns that are scripted into the story before the movie ends with the bandit’s grandson being awarded a bravery medal as he (a cop) was instrumental in capturing dacoits.

The titles of the movie says that Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mehmood, Johnny jr. and Shahid Bijnori are the playback singers used for songs written by Visweswar Sharma, Vithalbhai Patel and Shahid Bijnori. Kalyanji Anandji were the music directors assisted by Anil Mohile, Frank and Babla.

27th April is the fourth remembrance day of the very handsome, smart, good looking (his fans can choose the adjective they like) Vinod Khanna. He was a moderately good dancer, emoted well, had a good physique; may not have been like the 6-pack sporting modern youngsters but still well built. He also produced a few movies :- the 1974 release “Farebi” (various sites are calling this movie ‘The Cheat’) was produced by Pramod Khanna so we can say it was Vinld Khanna’s own production and “Himalay Putra” to launch his son Akshaye Khanna in 1997. I don’t know if today’s movie “Hatyara” was his production but the movie opens by paying homage to Smt. Kamladevi Khanna and we know that Vinod Khanna’s mother’s name was Kamla. He began his career playing a small role in Manoj Kumar’s ‘Purab Aur Paschim’; Shammi Kapoor starrer ‘Jaane Anjaane’; villain in Rajesh Khanna’s ‘Aan Milo Sajna’; there were many such movies. He was appreciated in ‘Mere Apne’, ‘Achanak’, ‘Inkaar’, etc. He made a good pair with Amitabh in ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Parvarish’, ‘Khoon Pasina’, ‘Her Pheri’, etc. We saw him share screen space with Dharmendra in “Mera Gaon Mera Desh’, ‘The Burning Train’, ‘Rajput’, and many others. Similarly he was there with Shatrughan Sinha, Jeetendra, Rishi Kapoor, etc and all the actresses of the 70s and 80s have acted with him- that list is long too.

Today’s song shows him dancing with Moushumi Chatterjee at his and his sister Priyadarshini’s engagement. We have the elders of the village as audience. Towards the end of the song Nirupa Roy makes her entrance and I suppose that is where the story of the movie takes a turn. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar and written by Vitthalbhai Patel.

Hullo Atuldom

Who is a dainty person?

Dainty is an adjective. If you describe a movement, person, or object as dainty, you mean that they are small, delicate, and pretty.

There is this actress from my growing up years who was very Dainty. Petite is another word that could be used to describe her. Not only was she loved by the audiences she was also a favourite of all her co-stars. Sanjeev Kumar would treat her like a child (as admitted by this actress in an interview) possibly an after effect of their first movie together where he played her father. Even though after that they went on to co-star in many movies and enacting a whole gamut of relations. Rishi Kapoor and Mithun were friends of hers and she has co-starred opposite Vinod Khanna in her younger days and also played mother roles to his sons in movies of the new millennium. She has paired opposite Amitabh Bachchan in 2 films in the ’70s and was seen in a brief role in a Bachchan starrer in 2015. She was often heroine to Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Mehra, Shashi Kapoor and was also comfortable sharing her heroes and screen space with actresses of her time be it Rekha, Shabana, even Sridevi. She has said that Dharmendra, who was her father-in-law’s (Hemant Kumar) friend, used to be very protective. Who wouldn’t be considering how dainty or petite or small she looked in comparison to half her heroes.

When I think back, I find that I remember many of her songs and used to like all of them. “Sun ri pawan, pawan purvaiyya”; “neend churaaye, chain churaaye”; “chhatri na khol udd jaayegi”; “tera saath hai toh mujhe kya kami hai”; “megha re megha re mat pardes jaa re”; “zindagi ek naatak hai”- all of them and some more, are on my list of personal favourites.

Oh I didn’t say who I was speaking of. Indira Chattopadhaya is our birthday girl today. She is called Moushumi Chatterjee in the film industry. She has been entertaining audiences since her debut in Bengali films in 1967. Her Hindi debut happened in 1972 with “Anuraag” where she played a blind girl opposite Vinod Mehra. She was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by Filmfare in 2015.

“Itni Si Baat” ( 1981) was a movie directed by Madhu M. (possibly the only Hindi movie by him) and produced by K. Raghavan (not heard this name too). Kalyanji- Anandji were the music directors with Viju Shah, Babla, Anil Mohile as assistants; and Anjaan was the lyricist. Asha Bhonsle, Alka Yagnik, Hemlatha, Amit Kumar and Kishore Kumar are the playback singers (as per the titles of the movie) It had Sanjeev Kumar- Moushumi Chatterjee heading a cast of Tamanna, Arun Govil, Urmila Bhatt, Asit Sen, Roopesh Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Baby Geetha, Master Gautam, Aashoo, Kesho Rana, Pardesi etc. Madan Puri and Om Prakash were in guest appearances.

I have seen this movie a few times on television and like its story. It is basically a story about a couple who are leading a harmonious monetarily comfortable life till they become parents. Then the wife starts feeling that things will ease up if she too takes up a job but the husband feels that is unnecessary. Also he has a feeling that she can help by being a little thrifty around the house and that would be help enough. To prove their points the couple switch duties and the wife finds a job and the husband starts looking after the house. They agree to experiment on this for a short period. What follows is chaos for the husband at home and wife at work and some hilarious moments. The movie comes to a close with the two realizing जिसका काम उसी को साजे और करे तो बुद्धु / डंडा/ ठेंगा बाजे’ “jiska kaam usiko saajhe, aur kare toh buddhu/ danda/ thenga baaje” (roughly translating to “every person is an expert in his own field”). Of course I don’t recall what happened to their monetary issue. 🙂

Today’s song happens at the beginning of the movie when Raja (Sanjeev Kumar) and Asha (Moushumi) have just expressed their love to each other. The song sung by Kishore Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal, runs through titles of the movie showing courtship, marriage and start of the family.

Here is wishing our cute Moushumi a very Happy birthday.

Hullo Atuldom

Last year, this post of mine spoke of “Sholay” inspired movies. Today’s song is from another “Sholay” inspired movie.

“Aandhi Toofan” that released in 1985 was directed by B. Subhash and produced by Pahlaj Nihalani. It had a cast of Hema Malini, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Kajal Kiran, Shatrughan Sinha, Mithun Chakravarthy, Shashi Kapoor (if I remember right, his was a special appearance), Danny, and Raj Kiran, Mac Mohan, Mazhar Khan, Tej Sapru, Sudhir etc. etc.

The cast of this movie has two actors who were part of the Hindi film industry since 1948:- (1) Sajjan who played Hema Malini’s father in “Johnny Mera Naam” was her servant in this one. (2) Raj Mehra who has played senior characters in many movies up till 1993 was Hema’s father in this.

The story was very very simple. Shashi Kapoor, a cop, arrests Balvir (Danny) who in turn wrecks havoc and kills the cop’s family. He then captures the cop who has gone on his trail, ties him up and when the new-bride goes to try and save him Balvir rapes her brutally in addition to killing the cop. The widowed wife (Hema) takes it on herself to seek revenge. She seeks help of two men Ballu (Mithun) and Raghu (Shatru) in this mission. The story is that simple.

I was reminded of today’s because of Prakashchandraji’s comment on this post. Exactly a year back I had a posted for “Gaana Kogile” (singing cuckoo in Kannada) or Isaikkuyil (as in Tamil for cuckoo) or the “Nightingale of South India’s” 82nd birthday. It is a year already and here we are wishing S. Janaki or Janakiamma, as her South Indian fans & film folks call her, on her next birthday. Here is wishing her health and happiness.

The song is a stage dance. We have Hema Malini performing almost like the Shiv-Taandav with flashbacks of the wedding and happenings that followed it. The song was written by Anjaan and Bappi Lahiri is the music director.

Hullo Atuldom

“Dil Deewaana” (1974); written as ‘Dil Diwana’ in the movie’s titles; was a Rose Movies production i.e. Ramesh Behl was the producer and Narendra Bedi was the director. Though people feel it was a sequel of the successful “Jawaani Deewaani” (1972) I don’t think so.

The similarities in the two movies are the producer, director, main lead, music composer and lyricist were the same. While “Jawaani Deewaani” dealt with love between college-mates, family misunderstandings, and ‘rich-girl not-so-rich boy’ theme, “Dil Deewaana” had a rich, spoilt, playboy who tries to mend his ways when he encounters a girl working in his office. As per the norms of Hindi movies, Indian movies will be more appropriate, the girl is not-so-poor, is economically responsible for the day-to-day living of her family and is unimpressed with the economic standing of the boy. The rich boy Vijay (Randhir Kapoor), decides to introduce Nita (Jaya Bhaduri) to his doting grandma (Durga Khote) when his past catches up with him in the form of Gita (Aruna Irani), her brother Pyarelal (Manmohan) and an infant. There is one more character in this film Sunita (played by Komal a.k.a. Poonam Sinha) to add to the woes of the hero. All-in-all a normal masala movie which I recall having seen ages ago, during the days when doordarshan was the only channel available.

What has remained with me from that movie is Jaya Bhaduri playing a girl who had a mind of her own and made decisions for herself. In fact, she was one of the actresses in the ’70s, who played such roles very often and whose standing was on-par with her male co-star. I wouldn’t say that she was a great dancer like her contemporary Hema Malini (Jaya Bhaduri could put the correct foot forward and be in rhythm) but she was good in all other aspects.

I must admit that I was not a huge fan of hers, but I loved her in all the movies that I saw including “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham” (2001) with which she made a comeback to commercial movies. She had already restarted acting with “Hazaar Chaurasi ki Maa” in 1998 but that was essentially an art or middle-of-road movie which went unnoticed by the masses.

She is a Padma Shri winner along with a few Filmfare best actress awards to her name. She has been in the Hindi industry since 1971 when ‘Guddi’ released where she played a sweet, film-crazy teenager who is in love with her matinee idol Dharmendra. Of course she had already acted in a few Bengali movies before ‘Guddi’.
With this post we wish her on her 73rd birthday and also on completing 50 years in Bollywood.

‘Dil Deewaana” had six songs of which the blog has the following two:-

Song Date of posting
Jaa re jaa bewafa 9 April 2014
Sun Neeta main tere pyaar ke geet gaane lagaa hoon 30 April 2014

Today’s song is in a discotheque. We have Jaya in loud make-up but still looking dainty, pretty and cute. The song happens post Jaya inhaling some intoxicating smoke from Sharat Saxena. The song has all the elements that RD Burman was known to put in his songs- catchy tune, lot of ups and downs for the singer to race her voice through and she (Asha Bhosle) doesn’t disappoint. We have flashbacks of this song from Caravan (1971) in terms of insanely sane choreography. And it is to Jaya Bhaduri’s credit that she has pulled it off amazingly. Wish she had been offered more such dances and run-of-the mill glamour-doll roles, I wonder how she would have performed them.

Hullo Atuldom

“100 Days” (1991) was produced by Jay Mehta (son of producer Pranlal Mehta), directed by Partho Ghosh. This was a first for both the producer and director. It starred Madhuri Dixit- Moon Moon Sen- Jackie Shroff- Javed Jaffrey- Laxmikant Berde – Sabeeha (daughter of yesteryear actress Ameeta of “Tumsa Nahin Dekha” fame) and a few others. It was a remake of a Tamil hit, a crime thriller with a twist. Madhuri played Moon Moon’s sister and Javed Jaffrey’s college friend. Jackie played a rich man and Laxmikant Berde his secretary.

Usually I like to give the synopsis of the movie with the song but not today. It will take away the fun of seeing the movie, just in case any follower of the blog feels like having a dekho of the movie, anytime. I have seen it in both languages and have loved it. Specially the climax and the various emotions that run through the movie. There is high drama, comedy, romance and a few entertaining songs. Partho Ghosh had an able cinematographer in the (late) Arvind Laad and the frames in the suspense scenes are well composed.

The music for the movie was by Vijay Patil better known as Raam Laxman. I remember that our in-house encyclopedia has mentioned somewhere on the blog that Raam -Laxman were brothers who were signed up for the 1977 movie ‘Agent Vinod’. Unfortunately, Raam the older brother passed away before the release of ‘Agent Vinod’ in 1976. But Vijay Patil continued his journey in the industry as Raam -Laxman and was very successful in the ’90s. He later changed his name to Raamlaxman post ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’.

“100 Days” had songs written by Dilip K Tahir, Dev Kohli and Ravinder Rawal. the singers used were Lata Mangeshkar, Alka Yagnik, S.P. Balasubramaniam, and Amit Kumar. Choreographers were Suresh Bhatt, Chinni Prakash, and Partho Ghosh himself. There are two songs that were filmed on the dancing duo Javed Jaffery and Madhuri of which one was a stage song.

Today we are not having the stage song but the other one, which is essentially keeping with the spirit of today i.e. April Fool’s day or All Fools day. Since morning there have been messages which are supposedly giving insight into why this day is celebrated and the last line of that message says, and I quote: “He used to read all fake stories, like you are doing now. It’s great idea fooling you”. Normally people play harmless pranks on their friends and dear ones on this day and I read somewhere that this is, generally, only till noon.

This is what I found on wikipedia:- “Some writers suggest that April Fools’ originated because in the Middle Ages, New Year’s Day was celebrated on March 25 in most European towns, with a holiday that in some areas of France, specifically, ended on April 1, and those who celebrated New Year’s Eve on January 1 made fun of those who celebrated on other dates by the invention of April Fools’ Day. The use of January 1 as New Year’s Day became common in France only in the mid-16th century, and that date was not adopted officially until 1564, by the Edict of Roussillon”.

Before getting on to the song I would like to congratulate Atulji, Sudhirji and all his followers and contributors and commentors on the blog’s 16300th post. Even if the blog is moving as per the movement of the moon, we are reaching centuries at a constant pace.

Here is the song in Alka Yagnik and Amit Kumar’s voices Sabeeha is in Javed’s team in playing pranks on Madhuri though they are all close friends. This song is written by Ravinder Rawal.

I would like to point out a few things in this song:-
(1) Javed jaffery is holding a small potli in his hand at the start of the song, akin to what Gabbar Singh had in ‘Sholay’.
(2) Madhuri has a step where she is shown mixing tambaaku (tobacco) like Gabbar Singh (of course).
These are the reasons why the song has stayed with me in all these years.

Hullo Atuldom

“Ek Hi Raasta” (1956) was a movie that was produced and directed by B.R.Chopra with story-screenplay- dialogue written by Pt. Mukhram Sharma. Its songs were penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Hemant Kumar who had Ravi as assistant and Yash Chopra was assistant to B R Chopra.

This is a movie which I saw only recently. It is popular as a movie on widow remarriage. But it dealt with a lot more.

It showed the young lady’s problems after her remarriage. It showed that the lady had a problem getting her son to accept the new man in her life as his father in spite of the new father being his own father’s boss and friend as also the little one’s. The movie tried to find the mental challenges a little boy faces when he is not told the whole truth regarding his father’s death. There are more complexities when the lady gives birth to a baby from her second marriage. The little boy leaves his foster father’s home with his infant brother in search of his father and mother. There are some tense moments (I was on the edge of my seat) before the movie comes to a close.

Daisy Irani (credited as Raja alias Roop Kumar in the movie’s titles) was simply brilliant. And who better to play the young mother than Meena Kumari.
Meena Kumari may have been typecast as a tragedy queen but there have been movies where she has shown her comic timing as in “Azaad”; “Mem Sahib”; “Miss Mary” etc. This movie too had comic moments between Sunil Dutt, Daisy Irani and Meena Kumari. There are also scenes that show her dancing capabilities.
This movie had eight songs and the blog has five of them. Two of the songs are in the same video on YouTube maybe because they follow each other in the movie with a very small dialogue in between.

Bekas ki aabroo ko neelaam kar ke chhoda 27 November 2012

The above are the songs from “Ek Hi Raasta” that are on the blog. The last post was in November of 2012. Don’t know how the movie has missed being YYIIPPEEEED. This post hopes to take it one step closer.

Meena Kumari was barely 38 when she bid goodbye to this world in 1972. Unbelievable that it is 49 years ago. Paying tribute to this uniquely beautiful lady who had a sweet voice too.

Today’s song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar, the first part of the song being in Hemant Kumar’s voice. It shows the young mother trying to forget her pain and put her son to sleep and how both of them are missing the father.


Song-So jaa nanhe mere tu to so jaa(Ek Hi Raasta)(1956) Singers-Hemant Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

bhola bachpan
dukhi jawaani
lambi sooni raahon mein
nikle dard liye manzil ka
do khaamosh nigaahon mein
kaun kahe raahi ko
kitni door kahaan tak jaana hai
jeewan ki sunsaan dagar mein
kab tak thokar khaana hai

so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja
so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

jaagne ko pade hai
abhi din tere
tu toh so ja
so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

laut kar phir na aayenge
bachpan ke din
laut kar phir na aayenge
bachpan ke din
kho ja sapnon mein
tu mere aansoo na gin
tera nanha sa dil
mera gham kyun kare
tu toh so ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja aa

mera saathi chhoota
meri kismat luti
mera saathi chhoota
meri kismat luti
aansuon ki toh ab hai meri zindagi
jaagna meri taqdeer hai baaware
tu toh so ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja
