Hullo Atuldom

Listening to music is a pastime. And if it is film songs – all the more good. Plus if it is HFM I couldn’t ask for more- anyone who knows me knows this. Fellow atulites included. Followers of the blog also are aware that “vividh bharati” the radio station, is my reminder diary.

So soon as I heard the program remembering Parveen Babi – of the lustrous hair- I looked for hitherto unposted songs and found many possibilities.

I have zeroed in on a song where she is romancing Jeetendra or trying to stop him from getting into trouble. I must admit that I know two songs from this movie, one of which, a Kishore Kumar- Asha Bhonsle duet Naye puraane saal mein ek raat baaki has been posted by Sudhirji in 2014.

The movie “Raksha” had a total of five songs, the handiwork of the trusted pair of RD Burman- Anand Bakshi. The movie was supposed to be a spy movie with Jeetendra’s character having the code name ‘Agent 116’. For added measure Parveen Babi also had two names – Chanda and Bijli. Today we have the Jeetendra lip syncing to Mohd. Rafi and Asha is the female playback.

Thinking of the beautiful Parveen Babi on the occasion of her anniversary.


Song-Main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do (Raksha)(1981) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

main chalta Hoon
mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do

o
main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do

o main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do

yakeen karo kisi tarah
milenge kal issi tarah
yakeen karo kisi tarah
milenge kal issi tarah
kal toh kitni door hai
mera dil majboor hai
thehero thodi der toh
dil ka haal sunane do

o main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do

lallaalala laalalalala

abhi mile abhi chale
rahe mujhe bade gile
abhi mile abhi chale
rahe mujhe bade gile

sab gile mit jaayenge
jab gale lag jaayenge
itni door baithe ho
thoda paas toh aane do
hmmm hmmm rurururururu
main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do (rururururu)

khuli hawa haseen Samaa
ruko zara chale kahaan
khuli hawa haseen Samaa
ruko zara chale kahaan

ek toh kaam zaroori hai
dooje kuchch majboori hai
donon baatein jhoothi hain
yeh hain saaf bahaane do

chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do
chale jaana

o main chalta hoon

Hullo Atuldom

Happy festival at the outset.

A festival that goes by various names :- Makara Sankranti (AP, Karnataka, Kerala, Goa, Maharashtra), Pongal (TN & Pondicherry), Lohri (Punjab, Haryana, Delhi), Sakraat & Makraat (Bihar, UP, Uttarakhand), Uttarayan (Gujarat, Diu, Daman), Suggi (in parts of Karnataka), Magh Saaji (HP), Ghughuti – (Kumaon), Makara Chaula (Odhisha), Kicheri (Poorvanchal, East UP), Pousha Sankranti (Bengal and North East), Magh Bihu (Assam), Shishur Sankraat (Kashmir ), etc etc. Outside of the country, in some neighbouring Asian countries to be exact, it is celebrated as Maaghe Sankrast – Nepal, Tirmoori – Sindh Pakistan, Songkran -Thailand , Pi Ms. Lao – Laos, Thingyan – Myanmar, Mohan Songkran – Cambodia etc. Basically we are all celebrating the transition of the Sun across the Equator, on it’s journey from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere.

Each region of India have their own ways of celebrating the event but as I have come to understand there are a few things common to all –Jaggery, til (also called gingelly, or sesame seeds), sugarcane, and freshly harvested ears of corn, wheat or even turmeric (in South India). Then of course the children enjoy themselves with kite flying which takes on the form of competition at times. So let us say Happy Festival. Tamil Nadu has its festivities spread over 3-4 days culminating in what is called Mattu Pongal – celebrated the next day of Sankrant with races with cattle involved. (PETA has tried to bring some order to the extent to which the animals can be made use of, and the conditions in which the races take place).

Last weekend, I was lucky to be asked to join my Chacha and Chachi, to an evening full of OPN songs by a newly formed music group. The members of the group were out to entertain themselves and showcase their talent among their close friends and relatives. The closest anyone of the group had come to anything Bollywood was when the hostess’s father had his ardent fan moment when he came face to face with OP Nayyar sometime in the 70s or 80s. That man was a self taught Harmonica player and encouraged his children and wife to sing along. And the wife and daughter of the (now) deceased man were at the forefront of the group which had female and male singers who sang in their own voices without aping any of the originals and that was a welcome change. The group presented medleys of songs with similar beats- the trade mark tonga-beat songs, and songs dipped in Punjabi folk tunes. The evening began with the song from ‘Sambandh’ – “Chal Akela Chal Akela” and then one song followed the next. The evening climaxed with songs that fell in tune with “Sar Pe Topi Laal Haath Mein Resham Ka Roomal”. In between there was an instrumental rendition of songs from ‘Kashmir ki Kali’, ‘Ek Musafir Ek Haseena’, ‘Kismat’ and ‘Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon’ using the saxophone by Shri Shyam Raj ji who (if I heard right) had been a saxophone player for many of OPN’s songs.

Let me add that we were invited to the evening because my cousin’s husband has taken up singing and joined this group post his retirement. It was a revelation that he sang so well. The first song he sang that evening was “Piya Piya Piya Mora Jiya Pukaare” and “Surma Mera Niraala” was his next. And I must say he “yodels” almost like the Kishore Kumar whose fan he is.

As is my habit (ever since I associated with this blog) the first thing I did on returning home was to look up the anniversary page of our blog and see what was the date of OPN’s anniversaries. Next I checked what songs of OPN are yet to make their appearance on the blog. I found many movies of the 50s & 60s with two or three songs left to attain yyiippeeeehood. Then I began looking up for associated videos on YouTube, these songs are not yet available on YouTube too. In fact only the audio of some songs are available and not the whole movie. So that makes reaching videos difficult. But we cannot let the occasion of remembering OPN go by without a song.

So here it is. A song from the film ‘Raagini’ of 1958. The film is produced by Ashok Kumar, jointly with TS Ganesh, and is directed by Rakhan. This movie had a song which was enacted on screen by Kishore Kumar and playback was by Mohd Rafi. Now I discovered another song, as I was hunting songs for this post, which is again classical raaga based and Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan and Fateh Ali Khan are the playback singers. On screen we have Padmini performing a classical dance and Kishore Kumar sitting on stage in a classical gaayaki mode and lip-syncing. A very uncharacteristic Kishore and a very uncharacteristic Omkar Prasad Nayyar who was popular as OP Nayyar. The song ends with Padmini matching steps to the brilliant tabla accompaniment.

As I was writing this post I recollected a post by Atul ji where he has mentioned about movies with names of popular actresses of the time but the actresses were not part of the cast of that particular movie, e.g. ‘Kalpana’ (1960) didn’t have Kalpana as heroine. An this film, ‘Raagini’ has Padmini as the heroine; Raagini the actress was her sister.

Let us enjoy this rare presentation, Kishore Kumar lip syncing a classical song in the voice of Bade Fateh Ali Khan.


Song – Chhed Diye Mere Dil Ke Taar Kyun (Raagini) (1958) Singers – Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan, Bade Fateh Ali Khan, Lyricist – Jaanisar Akhtar, MD – O P Nayyar
Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan + Fateh Ali Khan

aaaaaaa aaaaaaa
aaaa aaaaaaa aaaaaaaaa

chhed diye mere dil ke taar kyun

Hullo Atuldom

Today is the date when we think of our favourite innovator of the 70s and 80s. The songs he composed for his debut, in the 1961 released “Chhote Nawaab”, were of a different flavour from the music he created in his later years. Of course, I don’t need to mention that today is Pachamda a.k.a R D Burman’s remembrance day.

It is 26 years since his passing and we, his fans, still talk of him in present tense. We do not tire of describing his love for experimenting with sounds- using a glass and spoon or broom and comb to create the opening note of a song; or asking an artist to gargle warm water to provide a dramatic effect to a scene. Asha Bhonsle has often mentioned how she had to practice breathing to sing “piya tu ab toh aaja”.

My quest for a song to go with this post lead me to the blog’s “List-of-songs-by-movies” page of the blog and I found that we have yiippeeeed all of RD’s initial movies viz: – Chhote Nawab, Bhoot Bangla, Teesra Kaun, Teesri Manzil, Pati Patni, Chandan ka palna, Bahaaron Ke Sapne, Abhilasha, Pyaar Ka Mausam, and Waaris i.e. his contribution to the world of HFM in the 60s has been fully represented on the blog.

Of the movies of the next decade, the more popular ones are yiippeeeed and that is a longer list which I recommend the readers to find for themselves. Same is the case with movies of the 80s where we find that many popular movies are yet to even debut on the blog and some are one or two songs away from being yyiippeeeed. That means we are spoiled for choice as to which song will go with the post. Then the next point to be considered is whether we want a song sung by Panchamda or just a song with just his music. Then I thought if I wanted a solo, duet- all male or male-female duet etc etc. The possible songs kept changing even as I wrote the post and finally, I did an akad-bakad-bambe-boo and landed on this song which will help the concerned movie attain Yiippeeeehood.

Following songs from the movie have been covered so far:

Sapna mera toot gaya
Hamne tumko dekha tumne hamko dekha aise
khullam khulla pyaar karenge hum donon
Ek main aur ek tu

For the story and personal thoughts connected with “Khel Khel Mein” a visit to the above posts will suffice. Today’s song is perfect for the weather North of India and many parts of the northern hemisphere of the world are currently experiencing- supremely cold winds and snow in many areas. I have seen this movie a number of times. If I am not wrong, other than at the time of its release in the 70s, only the mukhada and first antara are there in the movie. With this Khel Khel Mein has attained Yyiippeeeehood.

Let us get to the song without much ado. It is an RDB- Gulshan Bawra- Kishore Kumar- Asha Bhosle classic.


Song-Aaye lo pyaar ke din aaye (Khel Khel Mein)(1975) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulshan Bawra, MD-R D Burman
Both

Lyrics

aaye lo pyaar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saayein
woh bhi iss tarah,
mil jaayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re,

aaja re aaja re

aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re

sang chalein toh manzil door nahin hai
jahaan bhi tu hai manzil meri wahin hai
ho ho ho
sang chale to manzil dur nahin hai
arre jahan bhi tu hai manzil meri wahin hai
yeh kaarvaan chalta rahe
chaahe jahaan jalta rahe
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saaye
wo bhi is tarah,
mil jayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re

aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re

aaye lo pyar ke din aaye

yoon hi rahein nazar mein jawaan nazaare
iss vaadi mein gunje geet hamare
ho ho ho
yoon hi rahein nazar mein jawaan nazaare

iss vaadi mein gunje geet hamare
hansti rahe yeh zindagi
badhti rahe dil ki lagi

aaye lo pyar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saaye
wo bhi is tarah,
mil jayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re,
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saaye

Hullo Atuldom

Let me wish everyone a Happy 2020. Hope everyone has a bright, healthy and musically joyful year.

Tina tin ke teena kisi ne dil hai chheenaa this post of Shri Encyclopedia of the blog has inspired my post.

That post has mentioned the variety of roles today’s birthday girl has donned in the movies from the time she debuted in 1950 with “Har Har Mahadev” (please correct me, I may be wrong). I am not trying to write her biodata as I became aware of her only as the hero’s mother, bhabhi, daadi, etc.

I got further inspiration for this post from Tabassum’s video on youtube. In this video, Tabassum mentions about the interview with Nirupa Roy (our today’s birthday girl for those who haven’t yet guessed) for Doordarshan’s ‘Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan’. Therein is a mention of the genres she has acted in and that in the 40 mythologicals that she acted in, she played Seetha in three films and Parvathy in four.

I remember seeing some of her black and white songs “Chahe paas ho chahe door ho”; “dhalti jaaye raat keh le dil ki baat”; “aa laut ke aaja mere meet” in the days of doordarshan and jolting into “what she has been a heroine before becoming Amitabh, Dharmendra, Jeetendra etceteras mother in the 70s”.

Today’s song is from a time when she used to be a heroine. it is from the 1957 release “Janam Janam Ke Phere”. I have no knowledge about this film other than the few songs I have heard from the album. the playback for the song is by lady- kokila Lata Mangeshkar (by the way I heard in the above-mentioned video that Nirupaji’s birth name was Kokila) with S N Tripathi as composer and Bharat Vyas being the lyricist.

the song is a prayer by the heroine to Shri Naag devta and we see the Naag going out of its capabilities to help her.

P.S: Thank god, those times PETA was not so prevalent else the makers would have had to face the music for cruelty towards reptiles.

Editor’s note- With this song, the blog now has 3500 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar.


Song-Aaja naag tohe mann mein basa loon (Janam Janam Ke Phere)(1957) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, Md-S N Tripathi

Lyrics

bhadak uthhi hai aaj vaasna ki
iss jag mein aag
naari ko fufkaar rahe hain
chhupe huye nar naag

aaja naag tohe
mann mein basa loon
aaja naag tohe mann mein basa loon
tujh se iss tan mann ko dasa loon
tu toh aaj bana mera mehmaan hai
tujh se zyaada zehreela iss duniya ka insaan hai
aaja aaja re naag
tohe mann mein basa loon ho
aaja aaja re naag
tan mann ko dasa loon ho

hey vishdhaari ee
hey vishdhaari
hey vishdhaari
tu apna vish sab jag ko dikhlaata re
insaanon ke muskaanon ka zeher nazar na aata re
aaja naag tohe sheesh chadha loon
aaja naag tohe sheesh chadha loon
apne bhaag ke deep jala loon
tu toh aaj bana mera bhagwaan hai
tujh se zyaada zehreela iss duniya ka insaan hai
aaja aaja re naag
tohe mann mein basa loon ho
aaja aaja re naag
tan mann ko dasa loon ho

jo zulmi ho
anyaayi ho
jo zulmi jo anyaayi
jo paapi atyaachari re
uske paap ko dank maar de
maniwaale phandhaari re
mani waale phandhaari
mani waale phandhaari
mani waale phandhaari
mani waale phandhaari

abla ko bandhan se chhuda de
abla ko bandhan se chhuda de
ek phoonk se jaal uda de
tu toh aaj bana mera mehmaan hai
tu toh aaj bana mera bhagwaan hai
aaj tihaare haath sati ki aan hai
aaj tihaare haath sati ki aan hai
sati ki aan hai
sati ki aan hai

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Round up of 2019

An eventful year comes to a close. I have had great experiences that will bring a smile on my face when I think of them or look at the related pictures.

First- my daughter gave me a promotion and I enjoyed every minute of the event. Only feeling at the end of it was— having waited for it from last July, when she announced her intention, I felt January came too soon and the week, with happenings related to the event, was over with the blessings of the elders of the family and good wishes of friends and relatives. And I must thank the Atulites too who came for it.

The next two months of the year were rather quiet. The major point of March being the R.M.I.M meet. I was lucky to have been able to attend the R.M.I.M in Bangalore this year -30th &31st March to be precise. And am I glad I attended it on both dates, unlike the last time when I went for one day and left almost immediately after lunch.

This time R.M.I.M was celebrating two birth centenaries – that of Chitragupta and Shamshad Begum. There was also a mention about the fact that Manna Dey would also have been 100 this year. Plus, there was a mention that many music luminaries of the past, who would have been 100 this year, need to be remembered.

On the occasion our Gajendraji reminisced about his encounter or meeting with the Shamshad Begum in 2012, when she was 92. He spoke about how sharp her memory was and about her sense of humour. He mentioned that when he asked her about her feelings towards her songs being remixed by the current generation her reply surprised him. She is said to have told him that by remixing, the songs were kept alive and more people were able to relish them.

Later during the post lunch session there was a debate or discussion on how social media impacted music and films. The discussion also touched whether it was right to colourise old black & white classics, remix or morph old videos etc. This was followed by Kushal Gopalka’s session where he spoke about his association with Shamshad Begumji. He mentioned another incident that showed Shamshad Begum’s view about life. He talked of an event for which he had escorted Shamshad Begumji; where the master of ceremonies asked her about her colleagues who were no more and had died rather young; for this -he says- her reply was “humari umr par nazar mat daaliye.”
My personal take-home from this was I got to meet the gracious, simple and humble Sudha Malhotra. She sounds very melodious in person even when she speaks.

For more on the meet I suggest visiting here.

April end saw me in Mumbai for a few days on some personal agenda. Which I clubbed with a met-up of friends from ASAD. That was a good gangout with guruji also landing back in Mumbai that morning and meeting Bakshishji and Nitinji for the first time (didn’t feel it was the first time though) and of course Sudhirji was also there. So, in all a good gangout even if I was present only for a short time I enjoyed.

June end was a trip to Bhopal to meet my gang of girls from college and chilling out in the heat of Madhya Bharat. But that was also fun, we parted with a promise of making it an annual affair.

July saw me in Kerala, the island resort of Ashtamudi, with newly acquired relatives and getting to know them. September end was Navaratri which saw me in my ‘sasural ka village’ as well as in Kolkata for Durga Pooja. A long-cherished dream of visiting the pooja pandals was fulfilled by my personal Santa.

Actually, for all of the above, I must thank my personal Santa as he never questions me or my intentions. He also turned a year older, an age when people normally hang-up their boots and think of taking life easy having worked for 40 years now. But my Santa has not yet thought about his boots or rest. He has a lot of enthusiasm for outings and excursions and is already planning his next joyful weekend. These breaks are what keep him going in stressful work conditions I suppose. God bless him forever.

I must thank our Sadanandji and Sudhirji for the song with this post. I am thanking Sudhirji as he suggested the song, since I have little knowledge of any song featuring the Shamshad Begum – Chitragupta combination. On a busy Saturday morning I pestered Sudhirji to find out if any Shamshad Begum song in Chitragupta’s music direction was left to be posted and he gave me this song before the day was out. Sadanandji has to be thanked as he is the one who has uploaded the song to YouTube. The movie is the 1953 release “Manchala” which had music by Chitragupta, the additional reason for my choosing this is, it is a duet by Shamshad Begum and Chitragupta.

Raja Mehdi Ali Khan was the lyricist for a movie which was produced and directed by Jayant Desai and had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, Agha Jeevan etc in the cast. Going by the lyrics and the sound of the song the male in the song could have been Agha.
Happy Partying & tik tok tik tok to 2020.

Hullo Atuldom

Wishing everyone a Happy (last) Sunday of 2019. Last chance to be a TEEN for this century.

December saw a few posts from me and like last year I missed sending posts for a few birthdates for which I would have liked to write posts. But here is the song which I was saving up for today.

Today, 29th December we are thinking of THE FIRST SUPERSTAR of Bollywood. Born Jatin Khanna in 1942 in Amritsar and brought up by his adopted parents in Delhi and Bombay. He was a schoolmate of a person called Ravi Kapoor (Jeetendra). They grew up in the old Bombay region of Girgaon and attended school in Thakurdwar area. They were active on the stage in their school and college and even won prizes in Inter-college drama competitions.

Jatin Khanna played a wounded mute soldier in a play called ‘Andha Yug’ in 1962 and impressed the chief guest so much that he suggested that Khanna should try films. Khanna entered the 1965 All India Talent Contest as Rajesh Khanna, a name given by his uncle. He was one of eight finalists from among 10000 contestants. United Producers was created by the likes of BR Chopra, G P Sippy, Bimal Roy, H S Rawail, Nasir Hussain, J. Om Prakash, Mohan Saigal, Shakthi Samanta and Subodh Mukherjee; and they were the judges of the talent hunt. Khanna’s first film was Chetan Anand’s “Aakhri Khat” in 1966 followed by “Raaz” both of which were his pre-determined prize for winning the contest.

His real taste of success came with “Aradhana” which came after he had a few releases from 1967 to 1969 (when Aradhana released). He was appreciated in “Itteeaq” “Doli” etc. which are part of the contract with United Producers and he was noticed for his performances in them. But “Aradhana” saw him rise to instant national fame and then the floodgates to successful movies were thrown open. And that kind of fame has never been experienced by any actor since. His fans still rave about his movies like “Safar”, “Amar Prem”, “Aap Ki Kasam”, “The Train”, “Do Raaste”, “Aan Milo Sajna”, “Sachcha Jhootha” etc. (I am not going to name all the 15/17 superhits of that period here). And I am not a biographer, I am only a fan of his and loved him in all his movies from “Haathi Mere Saathi” to all his later releases; whether “Janta Hawaldar” or “Aaj Ka MLA Ramavatar” or “Avatar” or “Thodi Si Bewafaii” and the movies which released in the 80s too; when he was trying to rebuild his career by pairing with Sridevi, Jaya Prada, Tina Munim, Poonam Dhillon etc.

For today’s post I was on the lookout for a song where he is on-screen with a child, preferably girl child, and ran through a whole lot of song-videos beginning from “Babu”, “Apna Desh” etc and zeroed in on this song from “Hamshakal”. It had him in a dual role as husband to Tanuja and Moushumi Chatterjee. He had a child from each of them. One of them loses her baby in the course of the movie the other loses her mental balance when she witnesses an accident and in that state of mental imbalance gives birth to a baby girl. Now that is the story of the two heroines, as far as the two Rajesh Khannas are concerned, one stands-in for the other so that the first one can solve the accident issue, due to which his wife had become mentally unstable. This movie I have seen at the time of its release in the movie hall, and a few years ago on satellite television. I think what I have written about the movie is right.

Today’s song is sung onscreen by Moushumi’s husband at the birthday party of Tanuja’s daughter. If I recollect correctly Tanuja is partially recovered at this stage and Moushumi has begun to feel that her husband is two-timing her. The song shows how much expressive Rajesh Khanna’s eyes were and we could feel his sadness without his breaking into tears when he remembers his dead child during the song. It is sung by the Kishore Kumar under music by R D Burman and song is written by Anand Bakshi. The unavoidable combination of RDB-Kishore- Rajesh appears again. And a song written by Anand Bakshi is a joy to listen to.

Let us assume that the baby girl’s role is played by Twinkle Khanna and wish her too a very Happy Birthday. We know there cannot be any song where the father and daughter appeared together so I am using this song. Twinkle was an actress who starred in about 16 films from 1995 to 2001 beginning with “Barsaat” which was also Bobby Deol’s debut into filmdom. Her last film as heroine was “Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega” in 2001 with Fardeen Khan. So, the tradition that the father started of acting with the Khans – Rajesh Khanna and Feroz Khan were seen together in “Safar” and “Aurat”; Twinkle’s “Love ke liye Kuch Bhi Karega” had Feroz Khan’s son Fardeen Khan as the lead. Another parallel between the careers of father and daughter was that both of them had movies with the title “Joru Ka Ghulam” and the movies were comedies. These days the actress in Twinkle has retired and become an interior designer and also a writer whose fortnightly column in the papers are widely read. Her writings have a fun streak in them and one of her books is titled “Mrs. Funnybones”.

Remembering Mohammed Rafi Sahab on his 95th birth anniversary :

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s post is for a song from the 1981 release “Zamaane ko Dikhaana Hai” which was produced and directed by Nasir Hussain. It marked the debut of Padmini Kolhapure as an adult; prior to this she had acted as a child star in numerous movies. The music department was handled by Majrooh Sultanpuri and R D Burman. The songs were play-backed by Asha Bhonsle, Shailendra Singh, Mohd. Rafi and Pancham. Nasir Hussain took a few scenes from his “Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hain” – song on train top; runaway girl from “Caravan” and a song & dance competition inspired from “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin”. Additionally, there are multiple songs in a scene as in “Yaadon Ki Baraat” and “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin”.

The story of the movie was very simple and straight: – a rich man, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo (may his soul rest in peace) has two sons Ramesh (Randhir Kapoor in a guest appearance) and Ravi (Rishi Kapoor). Ramesh (the older son) loves and marries a not-so-rich girl and so is banished from the household. All this happens during the absence of the younger Ravi who convinces his dad to forgive his BHAIYYA and sets out to bring his brother back. He finds that his bhaiyya and bhabhi are dead leaving their baby in the care of the bhabhi’s sister Kanchan (Padmini Kolhapure). Now his job is to convince Kanchan of his good intentions, fall in love with her in the process and take her & his nephew home but not before the movie runs through its set of twists and turns. Then there is also the rich man’s bad brother to take care of before the movie comes to an ‘ALL IS WELL THAT ENDS WELL’ close.

The movie had fairly popular songs, two of which are already on the blog. Today’s song is a multi- version song. Also, one of the version forms part of the multiple song set that I mentioned. In one version we have a song and dance competition where Vijay Arora (guest appearance) along with his partner (Aarti Gupta- also in guest appearance) challenges Rishi to the floor. But he is too drunk to get off the chair. So, Padmini takes to the floor sings & moves a leg and Rishi Kapoor joins and they compete with good support from the kids in the audience.

The second version with different stanzas has a drunk Padmini leading the song where the lovers fantasize about their future. We had Mohd. Rafi and Asha Bhosle giving their voices to the two songs.

This movie released about a year after Rafi saab’s death. This post is also to celebrate the 95th birth anniversary of Padmashri Mohd Rafi.
Rafi saab- the man who started his career in films in 1944 with a song under Shyam Sunder’s baton. In the career that spanned 36 years he had lent his voice for all the actors who have graced the silver screen in that time frame. He also appeared on-screen in two films. He was the favourite singer of an entire generation and the following generation too. People loved his Halke-Phulke songs as much as his classical based songs. He had great control on his voice and could go full-throated or soft in the same song. Don’t know why god stopped making singers like him and no matter how much one sounded like Rafi saab they couldn’t sing like him and none of his clones or apes or people who claimed to have been inspired by him reached that height of popularity. And I have heard and read in various places that he was a very humble human being. Like the song which Amitabh sang in a movie (in Mohd. Aziz’s voice) in 1990 “na phankaar tujhsa tere baad aaya, Mohd. Rafi tu bahut yaad aaya”; we, his fans, too miss him.

Wishing that Rafi Saab was still with us and thanking god for giving us such a divine-voiced singer let us enjoy today’s song.

Hullo Atuldom
December is filled with birthdays of superstars and super actors. We began the month remembering Dev Anand, birthdays of Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, & Dilip Kumar followed. Today is the 69th birthday of Rajnikanth, the darling of the masses in South India, he was also decently successful in Bollywood.

He is an actor who started out portraying negative characters and near-bit roles much like Shatrughan Sinha of Bollywood. He has worked his way up the ranks to superstardom and his best period began with “Billa” (1980) and he hasn’t left the hearts and minds of his fans- much like his inspiration- he has admitted many-a-times that he is a fan of Amitabh Bachchan. And after being cast in roles of antagonist from 1975-77 in Tamil and Telugu 1978 saw the release of “Shankar Salim Simon” which was a remake of Manmohan Desai’s “Amar Akbar Anthony”; this was followed by remakes of “Majboor”, “Trishul”, “Deewar”, “Namak Halal”, “Don” (Billa was its remake), “Lawaaris” etc and I seem to have seen most of these. I would love to hear the feelings he had when he got to act with his inspiration Big B in his debut Hindi movie- “Andha Kanoon” (incidentally this too was remade in Tamil but with Vijaykanth acting the role played by Rajni in the Hindi version). We had many Hindi movies in the 80s which were remakes of Rajni’s south Indian originals.
I
His super successful Tamil movie “Moondru Mugam” meaning three-faces was made as “John Jani Janardhan” in with Rati Agnihotri and Poonam Dhillon as female leads. It was the story of an honest police officer John Mendez (Rajnikanth as father) who lives a middle-class lifestyle with his wife, Cheryl (Poonam Dhillon), and a maidservant, Fatimabi (Dulari). John busts a gang that makes illicit liquor and holds them in a cell, bringing him into confrontation with their leader, Gajanand ‘Gajju’ (Kadar Khan), who goes to threaten John, but is himself arrested and sentenced. When he is acquitted, he decides to avenge his humiliation by entrapping John and killing him. Cheryl gives birth to twin sons and passes away. A rich childless couple, Brijmohan Gupta (Utpal Dutt) adopts one of the twins and names him Janardhan (Rajnikanth -son number 1), while the second is named Jani (Rajnikanth son number 2) and lives with Fatimabi. Twenty-five years later, Janardhan is an American-returned young man, in love with Madhu (Rati Agnihotri). On his birthday party he comes face to face with a man named Gopaldas (played by south actor Thyagarajan), and his entire personality changes as he is taken over by the vengeful spirit of John. Subsequently, Gopaldas is killed, and Janardhan is arrested and tried in Court. And then there is the usual climax when the brothers discover each other etc. (seen this movie a long time ago in Tamil not in Hindi)

Today on the occasion of Rajnikanth’s birthday a song from “John Jani Janardhan” which had Laxmi-Pyare’s music and Anand Bakshi’s lyrics. S P Balasubramaniam and S Janaki have given playback for this lively number which has Rati matching Rajnikanth’s colourful T-shirts with her lovely white dresses.

Rati who made her debut into Hindi movies with “Ek Duje Ke Liye” opposite Kamal Hasan in 1981 turned a year on 10th December. She was Rajnikanth’s co-star in many south Indian movies but I think this was the only time she acted with him in Hindi. Here is wishing her too a very (belated) Happy Birthday.

Hullo Atuldom

Sometimes a sudden tune or memory or word sends the mind looking for a song or visual connection. So, a few days back it was a tune in my head that sent me looking for today’s song. I remembered, rather vaguely, that the song had Ashok Kumar dancing away merrily. I remember having seen it eons ago on Doordarshan – the one source of most of my nostalgia.

I hunted down the song. I found the name of the movie it was from. Searched for it on YouTube. Enjoyed my first encounter with that movie thoroughly. It has been listed on IMDB.com under “action, crime, drama” genre. It should also have been categorised as “comedy”.

The movie had a huge cast- a set of dancing actresses headed by Shashikala, Aruna Irani, Prema Narayan, Helen, Jayshree T., Meena T. and Shubha Khote & Manorama. The male line up was headed by Ashok Kumar, Ranjeet, Sujit Kumar, Keshto Mukherjee, Asrani, Jagdeep, Viju Khote, Krishan Dhawan, Chandrashekhar, Coca Cola, Pinchoo Kapoor, Birbal, Yusuf Khan (Zabisco from Amar Akbar Anthony), Babban, Pakoda Kader etc. There were a few more known faces which were billed as guest appearance- Amjad Khan, special appearance- Danny and friendly appearance -Mehmood.

There were many movies back then where we had known faces putting in appearances in these categories as a gesture to the maker of the movie. And I think I know why Mehmood did this movie as the maker S. Ramanathan had been a co-director on “Bombay to Goa”.

This movie begins on a night where Ranjeet (one of the serious persons throughout the movie) is hatching a plot to steal diamonds from the vault of Pinchoo Kapoor’s residence in the company of Sujit Kumar (he plays a dead body for half the movie)- that is where the crime angle is. As the plan is being executed Pinchoo Kapoor is shot dead (crime angle again). But he Dials 100 with the help of his pet Pomeranian -that is one intelligent pet which has a good part to play in helping recognize the lost daughters of the family. That is when the ‘drama angle’ comes into play when the pet recognizes one daughter because of her locket, takes her to the bungalow where the loyal servant of the house enquires about the girl whose photo is in the locket. Further family-drama comes into play when it turns out that the girl in possession of the above mentioned locket is also the younger daughter of the family and in the absolute climax of the movie the sisters unite and with the aide of the hero and practically the entire cast catches Ranjeet and hands him over to the cops headed by Krishan Dhawan and Chandrashekhar.

Of course, we have to sit through the movie, from the murder to reach the climax (only place where there is dishoom- dishoom in the movie), through a not-so-boring movie. Danny was a revelation as far as his comic timing was concerned. I will not spell here what transpires through the movie and spoil the fun for anyone who may wish to see this movie.

Today’s song features the tenants of Manorama’s apartment as they gather to wish the newly-engaged hero -heroine (every Bollywood movie worth its name needs a jodi) Vinod Mehra and Bindiya Goswami. Everyone is singing and having the time of their life except Bindiya Goswami. The song is sung by Manna Dey (for all the males present), Asha Bhonsle (for the females) and Bappi Lahiri for Vinod Mehra. Anjaan wrote the song and Bappida was the music director for this S. Ramanathan directed “Dial 100” which released on 2nd April 1982.

Here is the song where Ashok Kumar leads along with Aruna Irani and the rest of those present join. I have always loved songs where Ashok Kumar visibly enjoys himself. Let us also enjoy this song.

Thinking of Dada Moni today on his anniversary.

Blog Day : 4161 Post No. : 15331

8th December is the 75th birthday of Rinku or Begum Ayesha Sultana Khan who also is known by the name Sharmila Tagore. What was not known is that she was born in Hyderabad. (I didn’t know, the stalwarts of the blog may be aware). She looked so delicate and fragile in “Kashmir Ki Kali” (1964) – her Hindi debut, having debuted in Bengali in 1959 through Satyajit Ray’s “Apur Sansar”; the need to protect her from Pran must have come naturally to Shammi Kapoor. She has a super-sweet smile too with deeeep dimples that form whenever she smiles. It was not as if she excelled only in glamourous baby-doll type of roles; she was comfortable even when she played the roles of mother and daughter – Chanda/ Kajri- in Gulzar’s “Mausam” (1975). 1975 saw her in five movies “Mausam”, “Chupke Chupke”, “Faraar”, “Amanush”, “Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka” and the character she played in each of them were completely different from each other.

I started following her from “Chupke Chupke” and then have seen many of her movies from the 60s and 70s on various media- Doordarshan, Satellite Television, YouTube etc. Had been very impressed by her in “Kashmir Ki Kali”, “Anupama”, “Satyakam” and “Viruddh” in the recent times. She was last seen on-screen in 2010 released “Break Ke Baad”. But videos of this elegant lady can be seen on YouTube in interviews etc where she speaks of her life and career and how her sister Oindrila Tagore (Tinku) played Mini, the central child character, in Tapan Sinha’s 1957 “Kabuliwala”.

She speaks of how she was given very short sentences to speak in her first Hindi movie by Shakthi Samanta etc (saw all this on the Zee TV show ‘Jeena Isi ka Naam Hai’).

For the occasion today let us have a song from the 1971 released, K B Tilak directed “Chhoti Bahu” in which she stars with her co-star of several box-office hits – Rajesh Khanna. She paired with him in seven successful movies beginning with “Aradhana” in 1969 and following it up with Amar Prem, Chhoti Bahu, Safar, Daag, Raja Rani, Aavishkaar and Maalik. She had a good pairing with Dharmendra too beginning with Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Anupama and Devar, Mere Humdam Mere Dost, Satyakam, Chupke Chupke, EK Mahal Ho Sapno ka and the last time we saw the pair together was in Sunny. She also had some good films with Shashi Kapoor- Waqt, Aamne Saamne, New Delhi Times, Suhana Safar etc.

Today’s song reminds me of another song with a similar theme – “Chanda hai tum mera suraj hai tu”. And also “Bada natkhat hai re Krishna Kanhaiya”, she did emote well in these song situations, we could see a lot of love for kids in those expressive eyes
“Chhoti Bahu” had six songs and debuted on the blog with he re Kanhaiyya kisko kahega tu maiyya in Kishore Kumar’s voice. The song is more or less the gist of the movie where we have Nirupa Roy as the equivalent of Devaki and Sharmila as the Yashoda of the young baby Sarika who is called either Kishan or Kanhaiya (have seen the movie ages back, should see again). This was followed by the Mohd Rafi sung ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi. The third song posted was dulhaniya bata de ree . Today we have the fourth wherein a happy, young girl is seen playing “mother” to her favourite doll. As the movie progresses, we get to know that she cannot beget children of her own so her ‘jethani’ gives her the responsibility of being the mother to baby Sarika.
Wishing our Sharmila ‘dimpled’ Tagore a Happy Birthday.


Song-Koyal bole daali se daali bole maali se (Chhoti Bahu)(1971) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

koyal bole daali se
daali bole maali se
bolo
kya boli
til ke phool tili ke daane
munne raaja bade sayaane
saari duniya dekh li munne raaja
ho munne raaja
tujhsa koi nahin
saari duniya dekhli munne raaja
tujhsa koi nahin
til ke phool tili ke daane
munne raaja bade sayaane

aa aa aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa aa aa

tu mere mann ka darpan
saathi hai akelepan ka
jaane ajaane jod liya
tujhse naata jeewan ka
atkan chatkan dahi chatokan
atkan chatkan dahi chatokan
naach dikhaa de chhoom chhana chhan
saari duniya dekhli munne raaja
ho munne raaja
tujhsa koi nahin
til ke phool tili ke daane
munne raja bade sayaane

rooth na jaana tu mujhse
duniya roothe to roothhe
yahi mel yahi khel rahe
kabhi saath na apna chhoote
bal bal jaoon munne raaja
bal bal jaoon munne raaja
thhumak thhumak chal ke aaja
saari duniya dekh li munne raaja
ho munne raaja tujhsa koi nahin
til ke phool tili ke daane
munne raja bade sayaane

aa aa aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa aa aa

jaan meri rehti hai tujh mein
tu hi jaan hai meri
ek pal tujhe na dekhoon toh
duniya ho jaaye andheri
tujh bin mera jeewan aise
tujh bin mera jeewan aise
bin khushboo ke phool ho jaise
saari duniya dekh li munne raaja
ho munne raaja tujhsa koi nahin
til ke phool tili ke daane
munne raja bade sayaane
hmmm hmmhmm
hmmmm hmmmm
hmmmm hmmhmm
