Saw “Bees Saal Pehle” which released on 6th June 1972, viz a few days back aaj se “saintees saal pehle”.

It starts off as any horror movie of those times. We have Vinod Mehra driving a vehicle (highly polluting by the standards set in the modern days) through a ghat road in perfect weather, rather late in the evening. His vehicle stalls when he stops it to see what or who has jumped over the cliff, doesn’t find a thing but now he has to look for help to restart his journey.

He sees a bungalow close by-predictably- and it is almost dark by the time he gets there. He knocks and the door opens by itself (was reminded of Mehmood from “Pyar Kiye Jaa”). He walks in with a “Koi hai? Arre koi hai?” (anybody there?). And an old man (Iftikhar) materializes and offers him a room for the night in the cob-web infested house.

Surprisingly the room has a clean patch. And as is the norm since time immemorial (my first experience was in the Ashok Kumar- Madhubala starrer “Mahal”) Vinod Mehra hears a lady scream and then sob and then sing plaintively. Sure enough, Vinod runs out of the room seeking the old man and asks for an explanation.

Then the movie goes into “Bees Saal Pehle” there was a Choudhury (Abhi Bhattacharya) in a city nearby, whose only heir (Ritesh) was in love with a sweet girl (Farida Jalal) of the area but had to marry another damsel (Anupama) to relieve her of her distress. By the time the movie got to this point in the story it had given us a party song, a romantic song, a line of a bhootiya (haunting) song and a “questioning the god” song.

Essentially the movie had eight songs with one of them appearing twice in the movie. The singers used were Lata Mangeshkar, Ranu, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Hemant Kumar as playback singers. S.H.Bihari was the lyricist and Hemant Kumar was the producer (Geetanjali Pictures) and music composer. Movie was directed by Probir Roy. The title card said that Ritesh (Hemant Kumar’s son) was introduced in this movie and I was surprised to see Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s name in the star cast. I didn’t get to the part where Hrishida makes a screen appearance as by then I had found my song to go with this post.

Going by the time of release of this movie, today’s song could well be one of the last songs that Hemant Kumar sang for Hindi movies. His journey started in 1935 with recording a song for All India Radio, Bengali non-film songs happened in 1937 and first film song was for “Nimai Sanyas” in Bengali in 1941. His first Hindi film came in the form of “Anand Math” of Filmistan in 1952. He had a 50-year long career dedicated to music- he was a Rabindra Sangeet exponent. I am sure we have had Hemantda’s detailed biography in a few posts of this blog.

We remember Hemant Kumar Mukherjee, of the wonderful voice, with a song sung and composed by him in the later part of his career, today on his 99th birth anniversary.


Song-Poochhe to kaun poochhe ye baat aasmaan se(Bees Saal Pehle)(1972) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

poochhe toh kaun poochhe
yeh baat aasmaan se
yeh kaisi dushmani thhi
bijli ko aashiyaan se
poochhe to kaun poochhe

barbaadiyon ko apni
aabaadiyaan samajh le ae
barbaadiyon ko apni
aabaadiyaan samajh le ae
aisa junoon laaye
har aadmi kahaan se
poochhe toh kaun poochhe
yeh baat aasmaan se
yeh kaisi dushmani thhi ee
bijli ko aashiyaan se
poochhe toh kaun poochhe

Hullo Atulwaasis

Today’s song is for all those who relish old songs. I am sure they will like it more because it is in black ‘n’ white. Now the majority of the blog’s followers will say – “oh, a song from the 40s,50s or 60s”. Next, I will say it is sung by Shekhar Ravijani AND Sneha Pant. I am sure the reaction to this would be “WHO?!!”. Finally, I will say that its written by Vishal Dadlani and music directors are Vishal (Dadlani) and Shekhar (Ravijani) and is from a movie released in 2006.

Now I have everyone’s attention, I think?

Let us first wish our dear Shri Paresh Rawal a very happy birthday. He turns 65 today. I am not sure when was the first time I saw him on screen but he has been an entertainer since 1984 in films and prior to that I am sure he must have done some theatre as he is an alumnus of the NM College in Mumbai which has an active drama group and has given the industry many a talented actors. Going by his filmography available online I seem to be following him from his first commercial movie “Arjun” which had him play villain along with Prem Chopra & Anupam Kher.

I seem to have seen most of the movies he was present in in the 80s and 90s (either in a movie hall or on television, but I have definitely seen “Naam”, “Samundar”, “Mirch Masala”, “Dacait”, “Marte Dam Tak”, etc. So many memories with each movie. He was main villain in “Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja”, “King Uncle”, “Daud”; “Daud: and “King Uncle” adding a touch of comedy to his villainy and this mixture of comic- villainy was the mainstay of “Andaz Apna Apna”. He turned to full time comedy for the Priyadarshan directed 2000 release “Hera Pheri” along with Macho-men Akshay Kumar and Suneil Shetty. He won the Filmfare Best Comedian Award for playing Baburao Ganpatrao Apte. Since then we have seen him play various character roles which are not only villain or comedian or serious just give him a role and he will fit in. Recently I saw a 1993 movie on TV- “Sardar” – through the movie I forgot I was seeing Paresh Rawal playing the role. It felt as if India’s Iron Man himself was there on screen; no wonder the movie got him international acclaim.

I must confess that being a huge fan of his I can go on and on. So I am moving on to the song of the post. 2006 saw Paresh play Baburao all over again in the sequel to “Hera Pheri” -’’Phir Hera Pheri”. We also saw him in “Malamaal Weekly”, “36 China Town”, “Chup Chup Ke”, “Jaan Hoga Kya”, “Golmaal Fun Unlimited”, “Yun Hota toh Kya Hota”, “Bhagamk Bhaag”, “Familywala”.

“Golmaal Fun Unlimited” directed by Rohit Shetty saw Paresh play a blind man who is waiting for his grandson’s arrival from America along with his blind wife Sushmita Mukherjee. The gang of four naughty leading men end up landing in his home and then the laughter the movie generates just increases. Th movie was a surprise success at the box-office. Today’s song happens as the blind man relates how he fell in love with Mangala (Sushmita Mukherjee) and how he was shy to admit it. The song was picturised as a mixture of colour and black-n-white and was very cute visually with Sushmita trying to be coy like the heroines of the 60s and please don’t miss the lamb she is holding with Paresh Rawal trying to be Dev Anand, Dilip Kumar etc. 😉

So that then explains the opening to this post. Hope the followers of the blog like the song as much as I do.


Song-Kyun aage peechhe dolte ho bhanwron ki tarah (Golmaal Fun Unlimited)(2006) Singers-Sneha Pant, Shekhar, Lyrics-Vishal Dadlani, MD-Vishal Shekhar

kya mere deewaane ho,
kya mere parwaane ho
aaj ham kahte hain
tumse pyar ho gaya

Hullo to all Atulwaale

‘Daaku Aur Jawaan’ was a 1978 release. It was directed by Sunil Dutt and starred Reena Roy, Leena Chandavarkar, Bindu, Sunil Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Ranjeet, Om Prakash, Anwar Hussain, Kanhaiyalal, Asrani, Padma Khanna, Tun Tun, Sundar etc. Its music composers were Laxmikant  Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist.

This is the story of the movie as given on Wikipedia-

Birju (Sunil Dutt) and Ramu (Vinod Khanna) are brothers and have a friendly bond with each other, They do a lot of pranks with the villagers, but the pressure of the landlord {Anwar Hussain) and the urban bad guy Bhairon Singh (Ranjeet) leads villagers to pay a fee for their lands to work on them. This leads Ramu to join the army as a Jawaan (Soldier). Bhairon Singh, with the help of Thakurain (Bindu) plans to frame Birju as a criminal on the night of Janamashtmi. Bhairon Singh brutally rapes Ganga (Reena Roy) and steals the entire wealth from the safe of her father. After getting raped by Bhairon Singh, Ganga commits suicide by jumping into the well. Bhairon Singh frames Birju for the rape and murder of Ganga and stealing the money. Birju is arrested by the police, but escapes and takes a pledge on Ganga’s funeral pyre that he will take revenge of her death and he turns into a Daaku (Dacoit). Ramu, in the war, is fighting against enemies, but gets back to his village after losing one leg. After a lot of turns and twists, Seeta (Leena Chandavarkar) finally reveals the truth that Bhairon Singh had raped Ganga and he has stolen all the wealth from her house with the help of Thakurain. When Birju comes to know about it, he beats Bhairon Singh in front of all the villagers and finally kills him by throwing him into the well where Ganga committed suicide. Now, Thakurain tries to kill Ramu, but Birju takes the bullet in his chest saving Ramu in the process. Thakurain is arrested by the police. Birju, finally breathing his last, requests Ramu to read the letter which was written by him. After listening to the letter from Ramu, Birju dies reuniting with Ganga in Heaven. In the end, Ramu marries Seeta and they lived happily ever after.

So that then seems to be a very normal Hindi film story where any reason is good enough for the hero to turn a ‘daaku‘. And I must say Sunil Dutt would have made an imposing daaku remembering him from all the daaku roles he had played starting from ‘Mother India’ (1957), – his first role as a daaku. Incidentally, in that films also, his role name is Birju. And to have Vinod Khanna play his brother would have been “a sight to soothe sore eyes”. Another of his earlier films in which he plays the role of daaku is ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ in 1963.

Today on the death anniversaries of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar (its 21 years today since his passing away) and Sunil Dutt (14 years today) let us have a song from this 1978 movie which will give us an idea of their talents at the height of their careers.

Also, with this post, the film ‘Daaku Aur Jawaan’ makes its debut on our blog.

नैना झुका के जरा बात कर
नखरा ना औरत जात कर
नैना झुका के जरा बात कर
नखरा ना औरत जात कर
नाजुक कलाई टूट जाएगी

ना ज़ोर मर्दों के साथ कर
ना ज़ोर मर्दों के साथ कर
छीन ली है

नदिया के पानी में डाल दूँ
थाम लिया
थाम लिया मैंने तुझे बन के बावरिया
छोड़ सके तो छोड़

Hullo to all Atulwaale

Majrooh Sultanpuri was an Urdu poet and also a lyricist or song writer for Bollywood movies. He was born in 1919 in Sultanpur Uttar Pradesh as Asrar ul Hassan Khan to a father who was a police officer. His father, though, a police officer, was not too keen on his son receiving English education and Majrooh was therefore sent for traditional ‘Madrasa education’ which led to his obtaining the qualification first of Dars-e-Nizami – a seven-year course which concentrated on religious affairs along with proficiency in Arabic and Persian- and then the certificate of Alim.(Personally, I don’t know what Alim is). He thereafter joined Lucknow’s Takmeel-ut-Tib College of Unani. He was a struggling Hakim when he happened to recite one of his ghazals at a mushaira in Sultanpur. The ghazal was a hit with the audience and Majrooh decided to drop his fledgling medical practice and began writing poetry seriously. Soon he was a ‘regular’ at mushairas and a “shagird” i.e. disciple of the then top name in Urdu Mushairas viz: Jigar Moradabadi.

While Majrooh is popular as a film lyricist and is widely known in that capacity, be it known that he also created one of the best-known verses of Urdu poetry, “Main akela hee chala tha janibe manzil magar, log saath aate gaye aur carvan banta gaya!” (I set off alone towards the destination but people joined in and soon it became a caravan!) Majrooh Saab (I think that is how an elder should be addressed) visited Bombay (now Mumbai) to attend a Mushaira where producer A.R. Kardar was part of the audience. He contacted Majroohsaab through Jigar Moradabadi and offered him a chance to write for movies which Majroohsaab refused as he didn’t think highly of them. But he relented on Jigar Moradabadi’s persuasion. Kardar then took him to Naushadsaab who tested whether Majrooh, gave him a tune and asked him to write something to fit that and Majrooh returned with “Jab Usne Gesu Bikhraye, Badal Aaye Jhoom Ke”; Naushad was impressed and they worked together in Majrooh’s first movie “Shahjehan” in 1946.So that then was Majrooh’s entry into movies. His work lasted well into the next millennium with movies that had songs penned by him releasing as late as 2004 – a forgettable masala movie “Ek se Badkar Ek” had “aankhon hi aankhon mein yeh kya baat ho gayi” which was penned by Majroohsaab. And I must say the song was good inspite of the movie.

A small trivia here: 2011 had a movie called “Soundtrack” which had my favourite Majrooh song of all times “ruk jaana nahin tu kahin har ke” and the makers of this movie were decent enough to give credit to Laxmi-Pyare and Majroohsaab.

In his long innings in Bollywood he had associated with the father S D Burman from “Paying Guest” (or even before that) to “Abhimaan” and with the son R D Burman we had albums like “Caravan” “Yaadon Ki Baraat”“Teesri Manzil” and all the etceteras that anyone cares to add. Majroohsaab also had association with another father -son pair. Can anyone forget “rahe na rahe hum mehka karenge” or “ab kya misaal doon mein tumhare shabab ki” with Roshan’s music? His work with Roshan’s son Rajesh Roshan is nothing less and equally popular. If I am not wrong the association started with “Kunwara Baap” in 1974 and went on with works like “Udhar ka Sindoor’’ “Jay Vijay’’ “Inkaar’’ –remember ’’tu mungda mein gud ki dali’’ was from the pen of Majroohsaab, unbelievable no? the 2001 release “Mujhe meri biwi se bachaao” was the last time Rajesh Roshan got to work with Majroohsaab. Of course, we cannot forget all the other albums the two have associated for in the intervening years – “Doosra Aadmi” “Janta Hawaldaar” “Ek baap chhe bete” etc.

“Doosra Aadmi” was a movie that was produced by Yash Chopra and directed by Ramesh Talwar. This was Ramesh Talwar’s debut as director. It was written by Raju Saigal and Sagar Sarhadi and had a cast of Rakhee, Shashi Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Parikshat Sahni, Satyen Kappu, Deven Verma, Gita Siddharth, Sheetal etc.

Atulji has posted the first song from this movie in 2008. He had given a brief of the story in that post. He followed it up with a post that had Deven Verma singing a beautiful song.

Here is the next song from this movie which was requested by someone called Bharati in the comments section to the song “Kya Mausam hai”. It is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. It is more of a background song played at a house-party and Rakhee and Rishi waltz to the tune in a dimly lit room with Parikshat Sahni looking not-so-approvingly as he is the only person who knows that Rakhee is looking for Shashi Kapoor in Rishi Kapoor.

Today on the occasion of Majrooh saab’s remembrance day and Rajesh Roshan’s 64th birthday a song they gave us in 1977 i.e. 42 years back.


Song-Aao manaayen jashne mohabbat (Doosra Aadmi)(1977) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Rajesh Roshan
Both

Lyrics

Aaa
aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthhaayen jaam ke baad
shaam se pehle kaun ye soche
kya hona hai shaam ke baad
aao manaayen

hamaari tamanna tumhen pyaar karna
hamein aur karna kya
hamein aur karna kya
mohabbat mein ruswa
huye bhi toh kya hai
duniya se darna kya

aage koyi ilzaam nahin hai
chaahat ke ilzaam ke baad
aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthaayen jaam ke baad
aao manaayen

yeh aalam hai jaise
udda jaa raha hoon
tumhein leke baahon mein
tumhein leke baahon mein

tumhaare labon se
hamaare labon tak
nahin koyi raahon mein
kaise koyi
abb dil ko sambhaale
itne haseen paighaam ke baad

aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthhaayen jaam ke baad
shaam se pehle kaun ye soche
kya hona hai shaam ke baad
aao manaayen

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 30
——————————————————————————————

May 1st 2019. International Labour Day. Also happens to be the date when the states of Maharashtra and Gujarat came into being from the erstwhile Bombay state in the year 1960. This happened as a consequence of the States Re-organisation Act of 1956 which defined boundaries for the states within India on the basis of languages. The Bombay State, that was formed by this act, was composed of different areas where Marathi, Gujarati, Kutchi and Konkani were spoken. There was a movement since 1956, which demanded that the state of Bombay be re-organised further on the basis of areas where Gujarati and Kutchi was a major language and other where Marathi and Konkani was majorly spoken. So, The Bombay Reorganization Act was enacted in the Indian Parliament on 25th April 1960 and the states of Gujarat and Maharashtra were born on 1st May 1960. That makes Gujarat and Maharashtra 59 years old today.

On the day these two states were born Prafulla Chandra Dey turned 41. He had already made a debut in the world of film music in the ’40s with the movie “Tamanna” which had music by his paternal uncle Krishna Chandra Dey and had a hit duet with Suraiya “Jago Aayee Usha Ponchi Boley Jago”. From then on he made his way into the hearts of music lovers across the country and sang in many Indian langauges – Bhojpuri,Magadhi, Maithili, Ounjabi, Assamese, Odia, Konkani, Sindhi, Gujarati, Marathi, Konkani, Malayalam and Nepali in addition to Hindi and Bengali.

He was trained in singing initially by his paternal uncle Krishna Chandra Dey and Ustaad Dabir Khan. He was credited with the success of Indian Classical Movies in Indian commercial movies. How can anyone forget the Raga-based songs “Sur na saje kya gaaun maain” or “Kaun aaya mere mann ke dwaare payal ki jhankar liye”. But his “Aao twist karien” and “ae bhai zara dekh ke chalo” were equally popular. He might have sung his first duet “subah ki pehli kiran” with Kishore Kumar in 1952 but their association on “ek chatur naar karke shingaar” is unforgettable. He has shared the recording studio with all the major singers of the time till the ’90s haing sung under the baton of most of India’s music directors beginning with K.C. Dey in “Tamanna” in 1942 to Shamir Tandon in 2006- that last song of Prafulla Chandra Dey a.k.a Manna Dey has been posted on the blog Duniya Waalon Ko Nahin Kuchh Bhi Khabar. Almost 102 music directors.

Now coming to the Blog Ten Year Challenge the songs that were posted on the 1st of May 2009 were:-
(1) Daa dir daaraa.. meri laadli(Andaaz)(1949) it had 2 comments and the movie is YYIIPPEEEED!
(2) Ghadi Ghadi Mora Dil Dhadke (Madhumati)(1958) had 7 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED!
(3) Masti mein chhed ke taraana koyi dil ka (Haqeeqat)(1964) had 4 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED
(4) Naach meri jaan fataafaat (Main Sundar Hoon)(1971) had 11 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED!!
(5) Do kadam tum bhi chalo (Ek Haseena Do Deewaane)(1972) had 6 songs with a multiple version song of which 2 are posted. (the sad Mukesh solo version is not yet posted)
(6) Haan pehli baar ek ladki mera haath pakad kar (Aur Kaun)(1979) had 12 comments and 1 out of 4 songs of this movie has been posted

The song with this post is from the 1972 romantic movie “Ek Haseena Do Diwane” which was produced by RG Films Kantibhai Zaveri and directed by S.M. Abbas. the movie had Jeetendra and Babita in the lead with Vinod Khanna as the villain. Om Prakash, Nirupa Roy, Shammi- played the elders and Johnny Walker headed a large supporting cast. The movie’s story in a nutshell as given by wikipedia-
Amar, the Nainital-based, orthodox and traditional person, obtains a degree in Engineering and re-locates to Bombay for employment. After doing so, he decides to assist his friend, Prakash, woo a wealthy and educated woman, Neeta but ends up falling in love and marrying her himself much to the chagrin of her father. Shortly after the marriage, he takes her to visit his widowed-schoolteacher mother, but she has gone on an outing. They return, and shortly thereafter arguments ensue, which escalate to such an extent that Amar assaults her, compelling her to return to her parents’ home. When she insists on a divorce – Amar refuses until and unless she lives with him for 15 days in order to create a false scenario of a happy marriage for his mother.

The song with today’s post is sung by Johnny Walker in the movie with two unknown ladies pestering him. it was a song I loved the instant I saw it. it has interlude music lifted from “Rattan”, “Pyaasa” and “Badi Behan” to add the comic element. It is written by Qamar Jalalabadi and Kalyanji Anandji were the music composers. The song brings out the full range that Manna Da was capable of.

Here I must confess that had I not attended the R.M.I.M last month i would have forgotten that Manna Dey would have turned 100 today if he had been there. Thinking of Manna Dey ……….

Hullo Atuldom

We are now into the 15000s. Atulji and his bandwagon have taken a fresh Guard (cricket language) as Sunny Gavaskar used to say when he began his stint as a commentator. He used to say that after every 50,100, 150, 200 etc. it is advisable for the batsman to take a fresh guard as it helps in restoring focus on the goal or job at hand. We at ASAD, never loose our focus, posting songs with regularity of at least one per day; explaining the name of the blog. It is another matter that ASAD is almost never one-song-a-day, it has been minimum 4-5 songs a day for some years and at times going to about 13 songs in a day.

Remember friends the world is one is the song which started our new series – series 15000s. We have a variety of songs that formed part of the celebration 15000- songs of the happy, melancholic, naughty, and party genre. We are expecting a few more posts that Sudhir ji (Atul ji’s trusted lieutenant) will add to our already existing khazaana. Till such time the blog moves on with one more birthday song.

Today a sweet looking, baby faced heroine turns a year older. And it is hard to believe she turns 71. So suddenly she goes into the category of stalwarts, senior actress etc. She has been acting since 1967 – almost fifty two years. She started her career in Bengali movies with ‘Balika Badhu’ (1967 release) as her debut movie. Subsequently she married Jayanta Mukherjee and that made her the bahu of the Hemant Kumar. I am talking of Moushumi Chatterjee of the brilliant smile that showed a crooked tooth which only added to her charm.

She has been the leading lady of all the heroes of Bollywood in her time from her debut hero Vinod Mehra to Raj Babbar of the next lot of actors. She has played Bhabhi to Mithun and wife to Anupam Kher too in latter part of her career. She last appeared in Piku as aunt to Deepika Padukone and sister in law of Amitabh Bachchan with whom she had romantically paired I the 70s in ‘Manzil’ and ‘Benaam’.

I talked about Moushumi pairing with all major actors of the 70s and 80s, there was one movie where she was paired opposite Farooque Shaikh. Yes, she has also done this unusual pairing. It was in 1987 released Mohan Kavia directed “Mahananda”. The movie was a remake of the Marathi movie of the same name which released in 1984 (I hope I am not wrong in this). The Marathi version was directed by Kay Gee, and had music by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. The cast has Vikram Gokhale, Mohan Agashe, Shashikala etc. The Hindi version has Dr.Shreeram Lagoo, Ashalata, Sulbha Deshpande, Asha Sharma etc. in addition to Moushumi and Farooque Shaikh.

The movie’s title card says it was based on Jaywant Dalvi’s novel of the same name. Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar, Manas Mukherjee and Ghanshyam Vaswani were the playback singers for songs penned by Nida Fazli, Yogesh, Kapil Kumar and Inderjeet Hasanpuri and Manas Mukherjee was the music composer. The movie was mostly shot in Konkan and Goa. Moushumi looked pretty in those typical Maharashtrian sarees. Farooque Shaikh plays an English professor. I think the movie touched upon the Devadasi system that was prevalent in many parts of Karnataka, Maharashtra and Goa. I have seen the Marathi version on Doordarshan a long time back don’t recollect having seen in Hindi.

I remember seeing her in an episode of the Doordarshan programme ‘Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan’ which used to be hosted by Tabassum where she showed how she could switch easily between laughing wildly to crying tearfully in an instant without the use of glycerin (the standard aid to induce tears in movies back then).

How can one forget her comedy scenes with Sanjeev Kumar in ‘Itni Si Baat’ and ‘Angoor’? Today’s song shows her in a different mood. It is a song with the unusual pairing of Farooque Shaikh with Moushumi. The female voice seems to be of Usha Mangeshkar and the male voice could either be Ghanshyam Vaswani or Manas Mukherjee (need help in recognising the voices). This song is written by Nida Fazli.

[Editor note:According to HFGK, the singers are Usha Mangeshkar and Bhupendra. But Peevesie’s mom, based on the credits, feels that the singer is Ghanshyam Vaswani or Manas Mukherji.]

Here is wishing our cute Moushumi Chatterjee a healthy and happy Birthday


Song – Mere tere naam naye hain dard puraana hai (Mahaananda) (1987) Singers – Usha Mangeshkar, Ghanshyam Vaswaani, Lyrics – Nida Fazli, MD – Manas Mukherji

deep jalaana hai
deep jalaana hai

yeh dard puraana hai
ho o mere tere naam naye hain
dard puraana hai
yeh dard puraana hai

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 29

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Dil Ka Nazraana Le O Dildaar Le” – this was the debut post of the 1973 movie “Chalaak” which was directed by someone called RK Banerjee. All these years I had only heard this song. Thanks to the ongoing ten-year challenge series I landed on the post of the song which had been popular in the 70s and is still heard on Vividh Bharti (All India Radio), I learnt that it was a Kiran Kumar – Radha Saluja song, which movie etc.

I landed on that post because of this “Mann Gaaye Wo Taraana“. Now this is another song that was popular on the radio in those days and is still heard sometimes on radio. I learnt that this is a piano song with Alka at the piano and Kiran Kumar in a jeep.

Radha Saluja and Alka are lost to followers of Bollywood and Kiran Kumar has turned to doing character roles or supporting roles since 1988 when we saw him in Rakesh Roshan’s “Khudgarz”. The rest of the cast of this movie comprised of Bhram Bharadwaj, Ajit, Danny, Lalita Kumari, P Jairaj, Gautam Sareen (in friendly appearances) alongwith Keshto Mukherjee, Jayshree T, Jagdish Raj etc. The synopsis of the movie as given on IMDB is

Monica Kapoor (Radha Saluja) lives a wealthy lifestyle in London, England. When she hears that her estranged brother, Kishan (Bhram Bharadwaj), has been killed while traveling in a train, she returns home to India and asks his much younger and drop dead gorgeous widow, Shobha (Alka), to move out so that she could sell the house, pick up the cash, return to London and get married to her boyfriend, Manoj (Danny). She does get to sell the house and compels Shobha to move in with Kishan’s friend, Amar (Kiran Kumar), but Manoj steals the cash and disappears. Humbled by this incident, Monica also moves in with Amar and Shobha, as well as Amar’s younger brother, Chickoo, and ends up falling in love with Amar. She decides to marry him at the Registrar’s Office. When he does not show, she returns home and finds him getting intimate with Shobha. What Monica does not know is that Amar is not who he claims to be but is, in fact, an escaped convict, who is determined to marry Shobha and get her to reveal the secret location of some gold bars.

Looks like it was a typical masaala film (should see it when I get some time).

There were 6 posts on 17th of April 2009:

Koi Humdum Na Raha

Tum Apni Saheli Ko

Raina Beeti Jaaye

Mann Gaaye Wo Taraana

Tera Mera Saath Rahe

Rootha Hai To Manaa Lenge

Of these ‘Jhumroo’, ‘Amar Prem’ and ‘Jwaar Bhaata’ have all their songs on the blog that means these movies have been YYIIPPEEEED! ‘Samaaj Ko Badal Daalo’ has three songs left and ‘Saudaagar’ has two left. ‘Chalaak’ has only two songs on the blog. Here is the third. It is written by Hasrat Jaipuri and Ganesh is the music director. It has playback by Asha Bhonsle.

 

Song – Yahaan Kaun Hai Jo Tera Hai  (Chaalaak) (1973) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Ganesh

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 1

Hullo to Atuldom.

Let me wish all a very Happy New Year.

No, my post is not late by three and half months, it is just that India is a country which follows a calendar called Shak Samvat which the Hindus follow and Hijri which the Muslims follow. The new year by the Hijri calendar starts sometime in September but as far as the Hindu Calendar is concerned every region seems to have a different time of the year when the new year starts. And each region has a name for its New Year’s Day – Gudi Padva (Samsaar Padvo in Konkani), Ugadi, Poila Baishak (in East Indian States), Bighu (Bikhu in Uttarakhand), Bishuva Sankranti, Cheti Chand, Vishu or Chitra Vishu (in Kerala and Tamil Nadu), I am sure I am missing a few names in this list – what do I do, we have a vast country. But the common thread here is most of the above are in March – April of the Gregorian calendar (only in some parts new Year is during Diwali and southern part of Kerala has its new year at Onam). In Punjab it is Baishakhi, celebrated on the Mesha Sankraanti which occurs today for this year (generally it is 13th April). So now that explains why I wished Happy New Year.

14th April also happens to be the birth anniversary of the architect of the constitution of India, first law and justice minister and one of India’s founding fathers – Bharat Ratna Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar or Babasaheb Ambedkar as he is popularly known the world over.

He was a jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement and campaigned against social discrimination towards the untouchables (Dalits), while also supporting the rights of women and labour. My tributes to him on his 128th birthday without spelling his biography here.

There is another event which takes up my day on 14th April every year. In addition to it being our New Year (what we call Vishu) it is the birthdate of a very special person. There is a departure from the usual this year in that the New Year is on the 15th but birthdates don’t change, do they?

So, 14th April is the birthdate of part-time Atulite, full-time Satulite. He is at that year of life when people hang up their boots (he is not hanging them yet) and try to find time for other pleasures and hobbies that took a back seat when they were working hard to make ends meet. This Satulite calls himself Peevesie’s Dad. He takes pleasure in the achievements of his family – his son, daughter, brothers-sisters, brothers & sisters -in-law; is a big bhakt of his parents and parents-in-law; and is generous in encouraging his wife and kids towards whatever they are good at and forever supportive.

Infact he tried his level best to teach me to ride a two-wheeler and didn’t actually give up on me, but I must say I was a bad student who took a whole decade to master riding a two-wheeler. And was rewarded with a two-wheeler to ease my work load as soon as I mastered it. 🙂

As a teenager and right upto the end of my student days I was a staunch hater of any kind of automation and computers in particular. I had a feeling that each computer would eat up the job opportunity of two or three deserving humans (people called me crazy, maybe I was). But it does seem to have replaced a lot of things in people’s lives. Now, today’s birthday boy tried to change my mindset vis-à-vis computers and persuaded me to enroll myself in one of the many match-box size training institutes that tutored commoners about Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc, in addition to teaching a crash course in Corel or PageMaker. He thought it will be a useful skill, I must admit he was not wrong. Then he initiated me into the World-Wide Web and emails, and I am 100% sure he is ruing the day I agreed to learn all that he tried to get me to learn. He finds me at the desktop most of the time these days, and zooming in and around Bangalore (never unnecessarily) on a two-wheeler. And am also sure (secretly) he must be thanking my nervousness of being behind the wheel of a four-wheeler 😉

Oh, there are so many things that I can thank him for – he has lived half his life trying to understand me and my ways and moods. We have common interests in most aspects of life, possibly a little too much of compatibility, according to our children. The song with this post is ideal to express everything that I need to tell him. And the best part about the song is that it is not a lovey-dovey young couple song but a song choreographed on a motley group of honeymoon tourists which has a middle aged couple (Shabana Azmi – Boman Irani), mismatched couple (Ameesha Patel – Karan Khanna), small- town couple (Kay Kay Menon – Raima Sen), seemingly perfect couple (Minisha Lamba – Abhay Deol); and two other couples (Sandhya Mridul – Vikram Chatwal & Dia Mirza – Ranvir Shorey) who are on honeymoon but not exactly in love. (Dia Mirza and Ranvir are not in this song but they are part of the tourists in the Honeymoon Travels bus.) It is from the 2007 Reema Kagti directed “Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.” The music for this song is by Vishal- Shekhar and Javed Akhtar is the lyricist. Sunidhi Chauhan and Shekhar Ravjiani are the playback. The movie was produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. I am in love with the choreographer of this song who has allowed the actors do their own thing which adds to the sweetness of the song.

Today’s song is a party song filmed aboard a cruise ship in Goa. I think the song is ideal for one more occasion – partying for the post number 15000 (FIFTEEN THOUSAND Phew!) of the blog. Let me try to list out all that we are celebrating in this series of celebratory posts – 10 complete years of the blog, 10 year challenge (on-going series); 1,15,40,016 hits (as I write this); 3919 days of existence (at the time of writing this) AND 11032 posts by our fearless leader (as Sudhir calls Atul ji) – we celebrated Atulji’s 10000 individual posts but missed complimenting him for tirelessly giving us 11000 posts. And the biggest point of celebration – post number 15000. In addition to celebrating the New Calendar in various parts of the country.

It has taken five years to get to 15k from 10k with numerous milestones and centuries strewn enroute.  The blog has bonded all of its regular followers, some of who are contributors in various avatars, in a bond like none other, a whole bunch of unrelated people who had never dreamt of being friends and don’t mind being called Atulites. For all this and more to come I thank ASAD the blog which is our collective addiction.

Also a very Happy Birthday to our Satulite.

Hullo to Atuldom

Today’s song/ post is to wish a Doe-eyed beauty on her birthday. At the when she was a busy movie star – starring in Bengali and Hindi movies – I had no clue about who she was, where she was from etc, and I didn’t care to find as at that stage in my life I was more of a watcher and not researcher. I have started trying to find things about the people who I used to like back then only now and I am amazed by the things I read and see.

So, today’s Bengali beauty was a convent school teacher to start of, who also tried her hand at modelling, participated in the Femina Miss India contest of 1971 and was judged Miss India World 1971. She went on to represent India at the Miss World 1971 and Queen of the Pacific pageant held in Australia where she was 1st runner-up. She also happens to be Anitha Guha’s niece. I am talking of the beautiful Prema Narayan- who made a name for herself playing Dhanno in the Uttam Kumar -Sharmila Tagore starrer “Amanush”. She was mostly cast as a dancer/ vamp or supporting roles with a western touch to her character. We remember her in songs of “Armaan”. “Ponga Pandit” etc as a person whose eyes are full of mischief.

“Barsaat Ki EkRaat” was a Shakti Samanta produced and directed 1981 release. It starred Amitabh Bachchan, Rakhee, Utpal Dutt, Amjad Khan, Abhi Bhattacharya, Prema Narayan, Sujit Kumar, AsitSen etc. Music was by R. D. Burman& Anand Bakshi was the lyricist. Songs were in the voices of Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle. This is the 3rd song from the movie on our blog. The first two were posted in October 2009. Here is this “in the villain’s den” “disguise song” (please don’t recognise Amitabh Bachchan) with Prema Narayan and chorus trying to distract Amjad Khan so that sneak into Amjad’s den; probably looking for someone. (can’t remember need to see the movie again for that)

Wishing Prema Narayan good health and good times on her birthday today (4 april 2019).

Editor’s note: This song is the one thousandth song of Anand Bakshi is the blog. It is easily the most low key thousandth song post for an artist in the blog. Anand Bakshi becomes the seventh artist and third lyricist to complete 1000 songs in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Happy Holi!

Some movies have a lot of memories attached to them. Yash Chopra’s “Chaandni” is one such movie. The year was 1989 and I had been to Mumbai (maayka) for my delivery. So, I had a lot of free time when I could interact with all my friends and neighbours like never before (and never have I had a similar opportunity too) 😉 that made that visit to Mumbai special. For those Atulites who know me- I had shifted out of Mumbai post marriage and so the term “visit to Mumbai”.

Getting back to “Chaandni” – those were the days when there were VCRs in many home and people used to rent Video Cassettes of movies which they couldn’t see in the theatres. I have seen a few movies in that way in the company of my neighbour’s family and more importantly their son. Their son was a year or two older to me so he was a mentor, guide, friend, idol and so many other things for me. To start off (as was the norm in those times) he was my Rakhi bro but we had a different equation between the two of us. He being my idol – I started liking Rekha- his favourite and he, on his part, made an effort to like Amitabh because he doted on me. Whatever love I have for physics, all branches of mathematics, and history is because I followed his way of studying them.

Oh, I again went away from Chaandni- so “Parinda” and “Chaandni” were the two movies the two of us saw back-to-back. “Chaandni” was a typical triangular love story. To start of it is a simple love story where the girl- Chaandni (Sridevi)- is wooed not-so-easily by the guy- Rohit (Rishi Kapoor). But the guys’ family has an issue with the alliance but accept it because their ‘only’ son is adamant. They go ahead have an engagement etc. But unfortunately, Rohit meets with an accident and is bound to a wheel chair. His family decides that this is the best time to humiliate the girl and so Rohit is forced to break-off the engagement so that the girl doesn’t have to face his family’s behaviour.

Now what does the girl do? She leaves Delhi, comes to Mumbai and lands a job in Lalit’s (Vinod Khanna) office. He is already pining for his dead wife when he falls in love with her, she takes some time to reciprocate though she is always civil to him and his mother. The next twist in the story comes when Lalit meets Rohit in Switzerland, where he has gone for business and Rohit has come for treatment. They become friends and decide that on returning to India they will introduce their respective girl friends and also marry on the same day etc. Isn’t that enough to twist the story further and make it a triangle?

As for the songs posted on the blog this date in 2009 – here they are

Main ban ki chidiya (Achhut Kanya)(1936) 938 21-Mar-2009
Baaba man ki aankhen khol (Dhoop Chhaaon)(1935) 939 21-Mar-2009
Zinda hoon is tarah (Aag)(1948) 940 21-Mar-2009

Lagi aaj saawan ki phir wo jhadi hai (Chaandni)(1989) 944 21-Nar-2009

This will be the 7th song from “Chaandni” which had Shiv-Hari as music directors and Anand Bakshi as lyricist. I cannot keep myself from saying: Sridevi looks so pretty and baby-like in this song, actually she looks like a baby through the movie. This song is shot on the streets of Delhi or New Delhi. I would like it if the Dilliwale followers of the blog help in identifying the locations. It will be nice to know. 🙂

This song is also in memory of the aforementioned friend who loved to ape Rishi Kapoor and his sunglasses and sweaters. This friend was also a Dilliwala for a brief period of his life.


Song-Bani tu meri mehbooba (Chaandni)(1989) Singers-Vinod Rathod, Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Shiv Hari

Lyrics

mehbooba

mehbooba

sheharon mein se shehar suna
bhai shehar suna thha dilli
dilli shehar mein chaandni naam ki ladki mujhse milli
uski jheel si aankhon mein haaye
dil mera dooba
bani woh meri
yahi woh meri
tu hai woh meri mehbooba
tu hai woh meri mehbooba
tu hai woh meri mehbooba
mehbooba
arre sheharon mein se shehar suna
bhai shehar suna thha dilli
dilli shehar mein chaandni naam ki ladki mujhse milli
uski jheel si aankhon mein haaye dil mera dooba
bani woh meri
yahi woh meri
tu hai woh meri mehbooba
tu hai woh meri mehbooba
tu hai woh meri mehbooba
mehbooba

maine tujhko dekha toh
pehli nazar mein jaan liya
hai mera mehboob tu hi
maine tujhe pehchaan liya
maine tujhko dekha toh
pehli nazar mein jaan liya
hai mera mehboob tu hi
maine tujhe pehchaan liya
khwabon aur khayaalon ki
galiyon mein jisko dhoondha
bana tu mera

haan bani tu meri
bani main teri mehbooba
bani main teri mehbooba
bani main teri mehbooba

mehbooba

mujhko yeh parvaah nahin
ab kya sabki marzi hai
sabki marzi ko chhodo
ye to rab ki marzi hai

mujhko ye parvaah nahin
ab kya sabki marzi hai
sabki marzi ko chhodo
ye to rab ki marzi hai

hum donon ke beech mein
ab na aaye koi dooja
bani tu meri
bani main teri
tu hi toh meri mehbooba
main hoon woh teri mehbooba
tu hi toh meri mehbooba
arre shehron mein se shehar suna
bhai shehar suna thha dilli
dilli shehar mein chaandni naam ki ladki mujhse milli
uski jheel si aankhon mein haaye
dil mera dooba
bani woh meri
yahi woh meri
tu hai woh meri mehbooba
main hoon wo teri mehbooba
tu hai woh meri mehbooba
main hoon wo teri mehbooba
tu hai woh meri mehbooba
main hoon wo teri mehbooba
