Hullo Atuldom

“Chaandni” (1989) from the Yashraj Films stable was produced and directed Yash Chopra. It starred Sridevi, Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Anupam Kher, Sushma Seth, Mita Vasisht, Anant Mahadevan, Manohar Singh, and Waheeda Rehman and Achala Sachdev in guest appearances. It was the story of Chandni Mathur a young effervescent young lady unsure of her emotions for two gentle men.

This was Yash Chopra’s return to his formula of love stories with good music, locales, and heavy dose of emotions and sentiments. It was very successful and also confirmed Sridevi’s position as a super actress.

It had songs written by Anand Bakshi and set to music by Shiv-Hari. Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar, Jolly Mukherjee, Nitin Mukesh, Vinod Rathod, Anupama Deshpande (the humming in the song ‘lagi aaj saawan ki phir woh jhadi hain’), Asha Bhonsle, Babla etc. were the playback singers There is even a Kishore Kumar song in the movie which had 9 songs and the blog has 7 of these.

The Kishore Kumar song has not yet been posted.

Today’s song is the surprise of the movie. I suppose this was the only song that Sridevi has sung in Hindi films. Of course, there is a song in Balu Mahendra directed “Sadma” where Sridevi’s voice was heard along with Kamal Haasan’s in the story-song ‘ek dafa ek jungle tha’ where she giggles and gives reaction to whatever Kamal was saying.

The song with this post is something which I have always wondered about. Whether it is a fantasy or flashback. I have seen this movie a number of times and I have not been able to decide. It has been shot in the picturesque Switzerland. It is one of the songs where the heroine is seen dressed environment appropriately. It also is a lesson for the lover to never meet his love without gifts.

We remember our beloved “khwaabon ki Shehzaadi” Sridevi who left us on 24th February 2018 today. She left her family, friends and countless fans shocked when the news broke over news channels in the wee hours of 25th. The general reaction was “it cannot be true”. How can a person who was so full of vitality and healthy and eagerly expecting her daughter’s first bow on the Bollywood firmament “just go!!!!” She herself just had had a release “Mom” and was seen at various award functions and TV channels. A lasting memory for me, personally, was from the TV dance reality show where she was seen shaking a leg with her contemporary Madhuri Dixit and it was a soothing sight for sore eyes. There have been posts on our blog which have her life-story, list of co-stars etc.
Thank you Sridevi for having entertained us through your life-time having started as a child-actor.

Hullo Atuldom

12th February was the birthday of an Atulite. He has started a series to introduce missing movies of the ’70s, and just as well as movies of 70s will complete 50 years. It is unbelievable that movies that were part of our childhood are 50 years old.

‘Guddi’, ‘Andaz’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Caravan’, ‘Anand’, ‘Anubhav’, ‘Parwana’, ‘Tere Mere Sapne’, etc all 1971 releases, all which I have seen multiple times. I am sure that these movies would be favourites of a majority of the followers of this blog.

There is one more movie that will complete 50 years this year. Its release date has been recorded on various internet sites as 1st July 1971, but the censor certificate has a date of 24th February 1970 i.e. exactly a year after its leading lady bade goodbye to this mortal world.

Madhubala- the beauty who charmed an entire generation of moviegoers. A beauty who had an infectious smile and near-musical laughter: – can anyone forget the laughter that precedes ‘haal kaisa hai janaab ka’ or the mischievous smile through ‘accha jee main haari chalo maan jaao na’ and ‘jaanu jaanu re chhupke kaun aaya tore angna’. Her eyes were so expressive. But write-ups about her say that she kept a low public profile and was not seen at film parties and premieres.

She was born Mumtaz Jehan Begum Dehlavi in Delhi on 14th February (which the world celebrates as valentine day in modern times) as fifth of eleven children to Ataullah Khan and Ayesha Begum. An out of work father first reached Delhi from Peshawar (now in Pakistan) and then to Bombay. A very young Mumtaz was first cast as a child actor in the 1942 release ‘Basant’ which was followed by ‘Mumtaz Mahal’,‘Phulwaari’, ‘Dhana Bhagat’, ‘Rajputaani’. Baby Mumtaz became Madhubala from “Neel Kamal” in 1947. It is said that baby Mumtaz and baby Mahjabeen became friends in the period they were child actors and grew up to be contemporaries – Madhubala and Meena Kumari. Madhubala is said to have been a fan of Meena and her voice.

Madhubala was one of the most popular, successful and highly paid actresses of the ‘50s and ’60s. She acted in 73 movies in a career spanning almost two decades though the ‘60s saw only five films of hers. She also produced three movie: – ‘Naata’ (1955), ‘Mehlonkekhwab’ (1960) and ‘Pathan’ (1962). She sang a song or two as baby Mumtaz in ‘Basant’. She was an enigma who was rarely seen at filmy functions or premieres, this was because she was an obedient daughter and submitted to the domination of her father. According to what Dilip Kumar has once said:- she was the only female star for whom crowds would gather at the gates of the studios where she was shooting. Many believe she was one of the most underrated actresses as her beauty attracted more attention than her talent. She was good at expressing a range of emotions through her eyes- comedy, pathos etc etc. In spite of being an iconic actress she never won any awards and was only nominated for her role in “Mughal-e-azam” but she reigned on the hearts of her fans.

She was unlucky in life and had a few heartbreaks before leaving this world and Kishore Kumar, whom she married in 1960, yearning for her. She died on 23rd February 1969 of congenital heart disease;an ailment for which there was no treatment when she was diagnosed in 1954 on the sets of a film being made in Madras. By the time heart surgeries were possible she was too weak to withstand and was confined to bed for nearly nine years. In 1966 she attempted to complete her part of work in the Raj Kapoor starrer “Chalaak” but that was also a strain for her fragile body. (Most of this information I have found on Wikipedia about an actress/ star who was on my dad’s list of favorites in those times).

The song with this post is from a movie that was shot sometime in the ‘50sand we have a very young Sunil Dutt romancing the princess “Jwala” (Madhubala). This movie is significant as it is the only movie of Madhubala that was shot in colour, “Mughal-e-azam” was partly in colour at the time of making, but “Jwala” was made as a colour movie. Sudhirji’s post gives us details about the movie which was essentially a ‘princess falling in love with a commoner who turns out to be a prince in exile’ story. Today’s song is written by Rajinder Krishan, tuned by Shankar -Jaikishan and sung by Manna Dey and Lata Mangeshkar.

February was the month of Madhubala’s birth and she would have turned 88. It is also the month she left the world at 36. We, her fans, can only fantasize how she would have looked as an octogenarian.

Hullo Atuldom

“Atulsongaday”- our favourite blog- is 16200+ posts old. We are still discovering popular songs and exclaiming ‘how come this has not yet been posted’. The song with this post is one that will get similar thoughts in the minds of the regular followers.

It is from a movie that I saw in the theatres at the time of its release and fell in love with its lead actors. Of course, falling in love with the moving images on the silver screen is something that I have been a victim of since “Seeta aur Geeta”, “Aradhana” and all the other movies that fall in my list of personal favourites. Small wonder then that I liked what I saw in “Betaab” and it is in the list of movies that I see every time I come across it. Also, the young star-crossed couple that Amrita Singh -Sunny Deol portrayed looked every bit in love with each other, that means they are good actors who did justice to Rahul Rawail’s (the director) judgement in casting them. Finally, ‘star-crossed lovers’ has always been a hit-formula in Indian movies and I am a fan of that formula since “Bobby”.

“Betaab” (1983) was produced by Vijayta Films which is essentially Dharmendra’s production house and Bikram Singh Dehal was the producer. Javed Akhtar was the writer, Anand Bakshi the lyricist and RD Burman was the music director. Shabbir Kumar (for whom this was a breakthrough movie) and Lata Mangeshkar were the playback singers. Nirupa Roy and Shammi Kapoor played parents, Prem Chopra the spoilsport, and Annu Kapoor, Birbal, Sunder etc were in supporting roles.

Interestingly, there is a scene in the start of the movie, where Amrita Singh (Roma Singh/Dingy in the movie) goes to fill petrol and the person who played the petrol pump attendant was actor Sunder’s son. That scene was to show the haughtiness of Roma’s character who later gets tamed and toned down after falling in love with Sunny. The two families are shown to be old-time friends who part ways and when Sunny’s family falls on bad times, Roma’s father, Shammi Kapoor, doesn’t acknowledge them as now they are on different economic levels. The movie travels the usual path of the lovers revolting against the tough father and his restrictions etc. and eventually getting back together for an ‘all is well’ ending.

Amrita Singh, who was a debutant in “Betaab” alongwith Sunny Deol, has her birthday today. And she is not a lady who hides her age and has been bold enough to act in all types of roles. She was amazing as a selfish sister in Deepak Sareen directed and Yash Chopra produced “Aaina” in 1994 and that fetched her the best supporting actor award. She has also enacted a negative character in the television serial “Kaavyanjali” and won an award there too. I saw the movie “2 States” in 2014 just to see her and Revathi (of south films), two actresses of the 80s and 90s whose work I enjoy.

Amrita was a heroine i.e playing a girl in love; screaming when the villain walks in; trying to get in the good books of the hero, his mother and other sundry family members in many of her initial movies. At the same time, she also tried her comic timing in “Chameli Ki Shaadi”; played a girl jilted by her man and still going ahead to give birth to his son in “CID” (1990) where Vinod Khanna was her hero. She has been paired with Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra, Vinod Khanna, Rajesh Khanna, Rajnikant, Raj Babbar, Rishi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Sunny, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie etc. of the next generation. When she co-starred with Shahrukh Khan in “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” she played a grey character and with Salman Khan in “Suryavanshi” she played the wandering ‘atma’ (soul) of a departed princess who is waiting to be re-united with her lover. She has had the guts to play a totally heartless businesswoman in “Kalyug” (2005) which was all about secret cameras, porn videos and international rackets dealing with these crimes. She had a break in her career when she married Saif Ali Khan in the 90s, had kids etc. She returned to face the camera with “23rd March 1931: Shaheed” as Bhagat Singh’s (played by Bobby Deol) mother. Her daughter Sara has made her debut in Bollywood through “Kedarnath” in 2018.

Here is wishing Amrita Singh all happiness and success in her future ventures too with this song that was her debut in Bollywood. This song appears in parts in the movie with the two also running around as kids when this song plays in the background (just remembered this bit.)

Hullo Atuldom

Here is a song from the 1979 release “Ek Baar Phir” that was written, produced and directed by Vinod Pande. It had music by Raghunath Seth and lyrics were by Vinod Pande himself. It had four or five songs of which the blog has this song.

On the occasion of Deepti Naval’s birthday (DoB 3 February 1952) we shall have one more song from this movie which was one of the films that gave her recognition. Deepti made her debut in Hindi films through Shashi Kapoor produced and Shyam Benegal directed “Junoon” in 1978. She had another tiny role in “Hum Paanch” in 1980. But it was “Ek Baar Phir” that gave her substantial screen time.

It was a very simple story of a middle class girl who gets married to a film star (Suresh Oberoi) who is busy with his profession and is a flirt. She accompanies him on an outdoor shoot to England where she meets a painter (Pradeep Verma) who makes artwork of people and exhibits them. He gets friendly with Deepti and they spend some good time with each other.

The movie tries to explore the lives of the three main characters from here.

Its songs were great on the ears. Raghunath Seth who was a noted Hindustani Classical Flutist, a Sangeet Natak Akademi award winner, was the music director.

Here is a melody by him in the voice of Anuradha Paudwal. It shows Depti in a melancholic mood. This was surely a heavy emotion-filled filled character that she played at the start of her career.

She is one of the few actresses who rode the art, commercial and middle-of-the-road movies with ease. She made an eye catching pair with Farooque Shaikh starting with “Chashme Buddoor” and “Saath Saath”, “Kisi Se Na Kehna”, Rang Birangi” and the last released film of Farooque Shaikh.

“Listen…Amaya” was also opposite Deepti. She had a charming smile and along with Smita Patil and Shabana Azmi, she was much sought-after in the parallel cinema of the period. She has dabbled in writing poetry in Hindi and English and also directed “DO paise ki dhoop, chaar paise ki chandi” in 2009 which starred Manisha Koirala and Rajit Kapoor. She has written and directed a TV serial around strong female characters and also produced a Travel show. She is very versatile indeed.

Let us wish her health wealth and happiness on her birthday.

Song-Jeewan ik sauda hai (Ek Baar Phir)(1979) Singer-Anuradha Pauwdal, Lyrics-Vinod Pande, MD-Raghunath Seth

Lyrics

chingaari wahi phir bhadki
dil mein wahi toofaa ..aan uthhe
dabaaya thha jin zakhmon ko
phir chamke
sulaaya thha jin sapnon ko
phir jaage

mere dost
mere humdum
kaise samjhaaun tumhen
jeevan ek sauda hai
hum sab hain saudaai
chamka sooraj kabhi
toh kabhi badli ghir aayi
jeevan ik sauda hai

acche bure hain jaise bhi
anubhav lene padte hain
ghor andhera ho ya ujiyaara
donon saath mein chalte hain
sukh dukh ko ye tedha chakkar
aise hi chalte rehta hai
jeevan ik sauda hai

tujmse mil ke jeewan mein
aisi veena goonji thhi ee
har saans aur khayaalon mein mere
tum thhe
tum thhe
tumhi tum thhe
par duniya ki sachchaayi hai aisi
maan’na ye hi padta hai
jeewan ik sauda hai

nishchal bahte jharne ke amrit jaise jal ho tum
komal khilte phoolon se
bhaav tumhaare hain nirmal
par paribhaasha mere jeewan ki
aur hai, aur rahegi wo
jeewn ik sauda hai

sambandh ye hum donon ke
ek meethha sapna thhe ae ae
man ke gulshan mein mere
nayi bahaar ka jhonkha thhe
hakeekat ke daayre sankre hain
unmein nibh na paayenge
jeewan ik sauda hai
hum sab hain saudaayi ee
chamka sooraj kabhi
to kabhi badli ghir aayi
jeewan ik sauda hai

Hullo Atuldom

“Sangeet” (1992) is a movie I have seen in parts on satellite television, don’t remember if I have seen the whole of it. Whatever I have seen has stayed with me and here is synopsis of the movie:

(1) Madhuri Dixit played a double role of mother-daughter. This, at a time when she was a glamour doll in other movies, Madhuri had a de-glamourised look as both mother and daughter. (2) Madhuri, as the daughter, was a blind girl staying in a under-construction building with Jackie Shroff as her neighbour. (3) Even Jackie had a role different from what he was playing in those days i.e. he was an out of work folk artist who has come to the big city in search of a appreciative audience. (4) Shafi Inamdaar played a wealthy man who marries the mother-Madhuri and Nitish Bharadwaj was her lover who she couldn’t marry. (5) Satish Shah played a music composer who has no qualms about hijacking other people’s tune and passing it off as his own. As per imbd.com it is the story of a blind orphan girl who has dreams of being a successful singer and reaches her goal with the help of another street singer and in the process discovers her parents too.

This was possibly the only Hindi movie which K. Viswanath directed, which was not a remake of his own Telugu hits. And in Madhuri he had a competent performer who did justice to both the roles, this was one of her underrated movies. Possibly the Hindi audience didn’t take too well to the story and the movie bombed. But both the lead actors had ‘hatke’ roles (an oft-repeated phrase among film makers). The melodies were the doing of Anand- Milind and Santosh Anand was the lyricist. Anuradha Paudwal, Suresh Wadkar, Pankaj Udhas, Jolly Mukherjee etc were the playback singers. Today’s song has Jolly Mukherjee giving his voice for Jackie Shroff.

Madhuri Dixit and Jackie have acted together in about 12 movies but this is one jodi that doesn’t come to the notice of Hindi film fans. They have been lovers, friends, bhabhi-devar, brother-sister (I am sure no one remembers that in “Tridev” they played siblings) etc. They have been good friends all through the years as is evident from the various times they have come together on TV and videos available on the internet.

Today we are having a song to wish Jaikishan Kakubhai Shroff a.k.a Jackie Shroff on his 64th birthday. He has been in the industry for close to 40 years beginning his journey as the villain’s henchman in a Dev Anand movie- he played Shakti Kapoor’s chamcha in Dev Anand’s “Swami Dada”. He is forever indebted to Subhash Ghai and has gone on record to say that he is ready to stand-in for the props in his movie if Subhash Ghai even mentions it. This is evident from the characters he has played in Ghai’s movies- father of Kareena Kapoor and his sisters, a guest appearance in “Saudagar”, a tiny role in “Trimurti”- I can go on quoting Shubash Ghai movies starring Jaggu Dada as he is fondly addressed in the industry. His journey into the filmworld was through the modelling world. He is the father of Tiger (Jai Hemant) Shroff the current heart-throb of the youngsters. Jackie Shroff is one of the actors of the ’80s whose movies I love to see the others being Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol, and Govinda.

Hullo Atuldom

We are on the last date of the first month of the 21st year of the 21st century.

January happens to be a cold month in the northern hemisphere of the earth. And India is in the middle of having winter which is characterized by fog, mist, cold winds etc depending on the Latitude that one resides on. When I used to be in Mumbai, the closest I came to experiencing ‘Sardi’, ‘Thandi’ etc was in the last week of December or first week of January. That too in the morning hours, till about 8 o’clock, then the thermometer would read round about 27 and 30 degrees Celsius during the day. I don’t remember seeing fog or mist there, but I had different climatic experiences once we shifted to Bangalore. I have seen all winter related features which last from November to January end with temperatures dropping to 10 degrees etc. Now in my current station, which is in the midst of lots of greenery and away from the hustle bustle of city-life, though the temperature did not touch 10 degrees on any day, we have been experiencing thick fog, cold winds, cold floors, etc.

All this talk of winter and cold climate, in addition to sharing pictures of fog with friends and family reminded me of a whole set of songs:- ‘jab chali thandi hawa’, ‘thandi hawaa yeh chaandni suhaani’, ‘thandi hawaa kaali ghaata aa hi gayi jhoom ke’, ‘thandi hawaayen lehraake aayen’, ‘thandi thandi hawaa mein dil lalchaaye’, ‘mujhko thand lag rahi hain’ etc etc.

The songs that I have mentioned are all popular numbers from their times. But the movies of the new century are no different. They also have songs where the different characters are reacting to cold climates with lots of guts- it takes a lot of guts to shoot these songs in cold climates, with snow etc for added effect and in costumes that are of the thinnest fabric possible like chiffon, lace etc. (Possibly the only climate appropriate dressing was Saira Banu in ‘Junglee’ and some other heroines of the ’60s and Hema Malini in a few movies of the ’70s, recently I re-saw “Dost”.) For further enhancement of the scene we may even see short dresses with long boots. My sympathies with all the female actors who have done those songs and scenes. And what do the male actors wear in such songs- long coats, mufflers, gloves etc.

In the build up to this post I recalled a 23 year old song. This song was shot in the cold climes of Australia. I had mentioned this movie to fellow-atulites, on our WhatsApp group last week, when the India- Australia cricket series was on. The uniqueness about this song is the heroine is dressed in climate appropriate clothes and we have the hero trying to be MANLY and showing of his biceps etc in half-jacket and jeans. I also read the heroine reminiscing about how the actor was shivering during the shoot.

I am talking of Preity Zinta and Bobby Deol. The movie was “Soldier” which was released in 1998. It was produced by Ramesh Taurani of Tips Records and directed by the director-duo: brothers Abbas-Mustan. It had Anu Malik as music director and Sameer was the lyricist. It was the third highest grossing album of 1998 behind “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” and “Dil Se”.

This was Preity Zinta’s debut movie though she had signed “Kya Kehna” before this. “Dil Se” and “Soldier” have billed Preity Zinta as debutant; Preity had a supporting role in “Dil Se”. She was born in Shimla on 31st January. So today is her Birthday. Last I had written a post for her birthday was when she turned 40.

She has taken a sabbatical from acting a few times since 2009 for the sake of her IPL team. She has married her long-time American partner in 2016. In her career of almost 25 years, she has acted with all the top actors of the ’90s and later years. She has also acted in a movie with Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor where her character was negative and Schizophrenic. She was praised for her portrayal of the character. She also appeared alongside The Big B in an English language film that was directed by Rituparno Ghosh “The Last Lear” in 2007, this was a film-inside-a-film drama. She has also played the traditional glamorous actress in movies. She has shared screen space with top actresses like Madhuri Dixit, Rani Mukherjee etc too.

Today’s song is to wish Bobby Deol too, even if belatedly for his birthday which was on 27th, he turned 52. Born as Vijay Singh Deol into the film industry as the youngest child of Dharmendra and Prakash Kaur. He first faced the camera when he was 5 or 6 year old as the baby Dharam in “Dharam Veer” (1977). His first adult role was in “Barsaat” (1995) where another star-child Twinkle Khanna made her debut. He has one more “Barsaat” (2005) in the list of his films. He has appeared in a few mutli-starrers and also shared screen space with his father and brother in a few of their home productions. The “Yamla Pagla Deewana” series was good to see due to the Deols even if the story was lame, tame or weak. It is always entertaining to see the Deols.

Hullo Atuldom

“Khoon Ka Badla Khoon” (1978) had songs by the hit team of S.H. Bihari- O.P.Nayyar; the team that gave us “kajra mohabbatwala”, “haule haule chalo more saajna”, taarif karoon kya uski”, “bahut shukriya badi meherbaani” and many more such hits in the ’60s.

“KKBK” had Vani Jairam, Pushpa Pagdhare, Uttara Kelkar, Mohd. Rafi for playback singers. It was directed by K. Parvez a.k.a Kalpataru and produced by Ratan Mohan. It had seven or eight songs of which the blog has only one song.

The cast included Bindu, Asha Sachdev, Mahendra Sandhu, Vinod Khanna, Ajit, Jayshree T., Padma Khanna, Iftekar, Imtiaz Khan, Sudhir etc. Seeing that the movie had so many actresses who could dance, makes it clear why OPN used three different female playback singers.

“KKBK” seems to be one of the movies where Asha Sachdev must have been the main female protagonist or to put it simple -the heroine. Also the poster of the movie suggests that Vinod Khanna may have been paired with Bindu
Here is the next song from ‘KKBK’ on the occasion of Omkar Prasad Nayyar’s 14th remembrance day. It is sung by Vani Jairam. It was and is frequently heard on radio. Vani Jairam had four solos in the movie of which this is the most popular. I found a very short video which suggests that Asha Sachdev is out to woo Mahedra Sandhu who seems to be some kind of under-cover officer. Also the video shows Ajit giving instructions to his ‘No 9’ etc as was the norm in all movies featuring Ajit in that period of time.

The poster that is accompanying the longer version of the song, as is available on youtube shows a rather smart and handsome Vinod Khanna, trying to shoot some one even as he is on the run.
The brief synopsis of the film that is available on IMDB.com says this: The story-line of the film revolves around a Crime Branch’s Officer and a courageous girl from another agency, they are appointed to catch a criminal gang who leaves a trade mark at their every crime scene.

So, that means it was a run-of-the-mill masala thriller that should have been entertaining for the masses. I would love to know how it fared at the box-office.
This is song number 184 of S.H. Bihari and 484 of O P Nayyar who should be thanked for the legacy that is there for us to enjoy

Hullo Atuldom

A very Happy Republic day to one and all.

“India is my country
And all Indians are my brothers and sisters.
I love my country, and I am proud of its rich and varied heritage.
I shall always strive to be worthy of it.
I shall give respect to my parents, teachers, and all elders and treat everyone with courtesy.
To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion.
In their well being and prosperity alone, lies my happiness
Jai Hind!.”

This is the national pledge which is commonly found printed in the opening pages of the school text books and calendars. It is recited in the morning assembly of most Indian schools. It is part of the Indian Constitution. It is commonly recited by Indians in unison at public events, Independence day, Republic day etc. At least it used be so when I was a student, don’t know if this is still in practice. We all know who wrote the National Anthem or the National song but the author of the National Pledge is largely unknown. His name is P.V. Subba Rao who was a Telugu author and bureaucrat who composed the pledge when he was serving as District Treasury Officer in Vishakapatnam district in 1962/63. It was subsequently translated into other languages. Apparently Subba Rao himself was unaware of the Pledge having been adopted as National Pledge till he heard his grand daughter reading it from a textbook.

Hope we all get back to taking the pledge today on our 71st Republic day.
“Diljale” (1996) had music by Anu Malik and Javed Akhtar was the lyricist. It was produced by Paramjeet Baweja and directed by Harry Baweja; Karan Razdan (of the popular Doordarshan serial “Rajani” fame) was its story-screenplay-dialogue writer. It had a cast headed by Sonali Bendre- Ajay Devgan- Madhoo- Parmeet Sethi and Amrish Puri, Shakti Kapoor, Himani Shivpuri, Farida Jalal, Akash Khurana, Master Raju (as Raju Shrivastav), Rakesh Bedi, Tinnu Anand, Aroon Bakshi, Gulshan Grover etc in the supporting cast.

It was the story of Shyam (Ajay Devgan) who is the son of a patriotic village leader (Akash Khurana) who is in love with Radhika (Sonali Bendre) daughter of the local politician and an erstwhile Rajasaheb. The Raja cannot digest the love between the college students because of economic and class differences. He also cannot tolerate the village leader who is an obstacle in his aim to usurp the land of the villagers. The Raja, with the help of the local corrupt cop Gulshan Grover manages to frame the village leader and brand Shyam a terrorist when the latter goes to question the Raja’s actions. This causes a rift between the lovers.

Shyam manages to escape and finds refuge with Dara (Amrish Puri) and his gang who are basically pawns at the hand of India’s enemies. Shyam as Shaka tries to settle scores with Rajasaheb, and in process a few of his associates are captured by the army. Dara and his gang then hijack a bus of Vaishnodevi pilgrims so that they can pressurize the army into releasing their gang members. Radhika and her aunt are also part of the hostages. This provides the ex-lovers opportunity to clarify misunderstandings. The movie then proceeds to the climax with Shaka/ Shyam managing to avenge his father’s humiliation etc. He also manages to bring a change in the thinking of Dara and his gang who surrender to the army when they see that Shaka steps on a landmine that was meant to blow them up. All-in-all it was an entertaining movie but IMHO the solution to the terrorist problem, as shown in the movie, was rather lame.

“Diljale” had Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Poornima, Kumar Sanu, Udit Narayan and Master Aditya Narayan who has now grown into an adult and is a singer, composer and television host now. We have one song already in the blog out of the eight or nine songs that the movie had.

Today’s song is a two-version song. In the first version we have Akash Khurana lip-syncing to Kumar Sanu and tutoring his son about the motherland. The son lip-syncs to Aditya Narayan. This version has all the trappings of a National Day song with flag unfurling, releasing doves and Hindu Muslim bhaichara or unity as one may choose to view it. The second version starts as an antakshari played by the captives of Dara and gang and culminates as the patriotic song sung by Radhika in Kavita Krishnamurthy’s voice.

Incidentally 25th January happened to be Kavita Krishnamurthy’s 63rd birthday. She was born in Delhi as Sharada Krishnamurthy. She is married to Dr. L. Subramaniam a renowned composer, violinist, and conductor who is trained in Carnatic classical music as well as Western Classical music. Kavita got an opportunity to sing under the auspices of Hemant Kumar for a Bengali film in 1971 when she was still in college and Lata Mangeshkar was her co-singer. Hemantda’s daughter was instrumental in reintroducing Kavita to Hemantda and he began using her for his live performances. Manna Dey spotted her in one of these shows and then she sang a few advertisement jingles. Until 1985, when “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” happened, Kavita was a dubbing artist for many composers. “tumse milkar, na jaane kyun” and “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” was the turning point of her career. Here is wishing Kavita Krishnamurthy a life filled with happiness and music and good health.

Happy Republic Day once again.

Hullo Atuldom

Deepika Padukone, daughter of champion badminton player Prakash Padukone, herself a national level player, entered the glamour world of films through the modelling route. She is one of the highest paid actresses currently and winner of three filmfare awards for acting. 2006 was her debut year in Kannada films and 2007 saw her debut in Hindi films through Farah Khan’s ‘Om Shanti Om.’ Since then she has had a mixed bag of fortune as far as successful movies are concerned, but she hasn’t shied away from experimenting with the characters she plays on-screen. Her roles in ‘Piku’, ‘Bajirao Mastaani’, ‘Padmaavat’, ‘Finding Fanny’ etc are all diametrically different from each other and that doesn’t mean that she hasn’t done roles of young, modern damsels as in ‘Happy New Year’, ‘Chennai Express’, ‘Cocktail’, ‘Aarakshan’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ etc.

2015 saw her star opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Imtiaz Ali directed “Tamasha”. She played the role of a businessperson who helps Ranbir Kapoor’s character overcome his complexes. The movie was a drama based on a non-linear screenplay. A type of story telling which I have seen in a few movies in recent times. The story was loosely based on a French novel ‘The Little Prince’. It may have been a moderate success but the work of the lead pair was well received. It had music by A. R. Rehman and lyrics were by Irshad Kamil.

Irshad Kamil has been around writing songs for some successful movies for the last 15-16 years. He was born in Punjab and is a graduate of journalism and a post graduate and PhD in Hindi.

A. R. Rehman, born in Chennai as A.S. Dileep Kumar, in 1967 converted to Islam when he was in his 20s. His journey in the music world began when he scored music for jingles and documetaries for Television in the late 80s when he was still Dileep. His most enduring and easily re-callable jingle being for Titan Watches. His first independent score was for Mani Ratnam’s ‘Roja’ in 1991. Prior to that he was playing in the orchestra of famous South Indian music composers.

With today’s song we are wishing the maestro, that A. R. Rehman has turned out to be, on his 54th birthday. May he keep giving us lovely, loving, hummable songs. Let us also wish Deepika on her birthday which was yesterday (5th January) with health and happiness.

The song with this post is something that I have been hearing and seeing from the time it released in 2015. What struck me was the choreography and the spirited performance of Ranbir and Deepika. There is a portion of the song where he tries to ape Dev Anand in terms of steps, costume, cap etc. This is a song which is a good showcase for Deepika’s beauty and Rehman’s music. The playback is by Mohit Chauhan. As I was writing this I realized that there is one other movie with the same title starring Dev Anand, Meena Kumari, Ashok Kumar etc. and that is already present on the blog waiting to be yyiippeed.

Hullo Atuldom

4th January is the 90th birth anniversary of the on-screen mother of Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor, Dharmendra, and a few heroines too. She mostly played mother to heroes, at least that is what my personal experience was, fed as I was on movies of the ’70s and ’80s.

But that is not how she began her career. Our in-house encyclopedia whom I prefer calling Guruji has written a post and also in a few of his comments to other posts on the blog that she has played comic characters and stunt roles too in addition to playing Goddesses in mythologicals after having made her debut as heroine in movies of the late ’40s and continuing to play central characters through the ’50s and early ’60s. In post of his Atulji has commented about a 44 year old Nirupa Roy (who this post is dedicated to) playing mother to a 38 year old Shashi Kapoor and 34 year old Amitabh Bachchan who incidentally played the older son.

“Laadla” (1966) had seven songs of which the blog has four songs. One of the songs posted thus far is a two part song and shows Nirupa Roy sing a lullaby to a baby in a pram who grows up to be Sudhir Kumar (of ‘Dosti’ fame). Today’s song show her on a train journey and making her son comfortable on the berth of the compartment. This must have been the first class coach of yore which used to have a lot of space and private washroom etc.; this I am deducing from all the train scenes of old time movies that I have grown up seeing. Personally I have never experienced that luxury, but that is not the matter of this post.

Today’s song has Lata Mangeshkar giving playback to Nirupa’s atma ki awaaz (voice of conscience) and the charming actress shows her distress so well. Heard this song for the first time as I wrote it out for the post and like what Rajinder Krishan has written and Laxmi-Pyare have composed.


Song-Kaun tujhko maa kahega (Laadla)(1966) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisiki maa nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tere dil mein maa–mta ka
ek bhi armaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin

phool jiss daali se nikla
haq ussi daali ka hai ae ae
phool jiss daali se nikla
haq ussi daali ka hai
teri hasti tera darza
teri hasti tera darza
toh fakat maali ka hai
jhhooth ko sach kar dikhaana
iss kadar aasaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tu kisi ki maa nahin

soch jiska yeh jigar hai
aaj woh roti hai kyun
soch jiska yeh jigar hai
aaj woh roti hai kyun
tu kisi ke aansuon se
tu kisi ke aansuon se
apna munh dhoti hai kyun
jo khushi chheene kisi ki
woh koi insaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tere dil mein maa–mta ka
ek bhi armaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tu kisi ki maa nahin
maa nahin
