Hullo Atuldom

We are into the last month of 2019. There are a lot of messages being forwarded on WhatsApp and other social media platforms urging the reader to enjoy the last TEEN year in a long time to come, after this the new millennium will be on the threshold of adulthood (India has 21 as the official age at which a person is considered an adult).

Here is the first birthday post for the month. Let us all wish the “raunaq e blog”- titled bestowed on the recipient two years ago on this date- a very Happy Birthday. May she be forever healthy happy cheerful and full of life, as she has been described by Atulji and Sudhirji in their posts in the blog.

I have not gone looking for hitherto unposted Talat Mehmood songs as Atulji had suggested two years back but went with my regular practice of mixing this birthday girl with the flamboyant, evergreen, forever PACHCHEES (25) actor of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s who was forever hyperactive. And going by what the two Sutradhars of our blog have written, our birthday gal sounds to be ‘hyperactive’ and may she be forever PACHCHEES or shall I say “Aththara” (18). Wish you a very happy birthday Ben Katie a.k.a Khyatiben. Lets us have a great time today on your birthday. Let the music begin and play through the day from this end of the globe to your end.

tum jiyo hazaaron saal saal ke din hon pachaas hazaar,
sau saal jiyo tum jaan meri , or the evergreen baar baar din ye aaye.
Let all these and other birthday songs available here and elsewhere be played on loop (as kids we used to say rewind and replay the cassette). Let our dear birthday gal choose a song she likes; we shall play that too on LOOP.

Today we also remember Raju “Guide” on his 8th Remembrance Day with a song that showcases him with his typical mannerisms which I feel he adopted after around 30-35 years in the industry. That typical nod, crooked smile that made ladies go weak at the knees (or was that smile always a killer) etc. This is from the 1982 release “Swami Dada” which was produced and directed by Dev Anand and had a large cast. The ladies in the movie were Rati Agnihotri, Padmini Kolhapure (she was still a teenager), Urmila Bhatt, Sushma Seth, Naaz, Christine O’Neil, Beena, Baby Khushboo etc. The male cast was headed by Dev Anand, Mithun Chakravarty, Naseeruddin Shah, Shakti Kapoor, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Tom Alter, Bharat Kapoor, Sudhir etc, this was Jackie Shroff’s first credited screen appearance playing Shakti Kapoor’s confidant.

The first song from this movie was posted exactly seven years back for the same occasion; at that time, I had found this on IMDB.com –

Hari Mohan is a saintly person who organizes Hindu prayers and discourses in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. He is called “Swami Dada” by everyone. He has many followers, and devotees who throng in large numbers to hear his sermons. What they do not know that Hari Mohan is a professional thief, and is now conspiring with a young woman, and a group of orphaned children to steal the temple jewellery.

On revisiting imdb I found a little more to go with the above –
Dev Anand is one of the tapori gang, handled by Kulbhushan Kharbanda. He escapes to Western country, only to come back and see that the members of the gang living in same conditions. He, himself have become a spiritual person. Named Swami. In order to break the gang, Dev poses himself as Ringo Dada. Hence the name Swami Dada
Hari Mohan is a saintly person who organizes Hindu prayers and discourses in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. He is called “Swami Dada” by everyone. He has many followers, and devotees who throng in large numbers to hear his sermons. What they do not know that Hari Mohan is a professional thief, and is now conspiring with a young woman, and a group of orphaned children to steal the temple jewellery.

“Swami Dada” had music by RD Burman and Anjaan was the lyricist. The playback for today’s song is by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar.
Thinking of the style icon, winner of Dadasaheb Phalke award (2002), Padma Bhushan (2001), and three-time filmfare award recipient one of which was the life-time achievement in 1993, and a darling of the masses for nearly sixty years who is still an inspiration and will remain one for generations to come thanks to the legacy he has left behind. I am not trying to describe the kind of movies he was associated with or anything about his biography here. Let us just get on to the song.


Song-Galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani (Swaami Dada)(1982) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

paanch ke note mein ab kya dam hai

ho o o dus ka note cigarette ko bhi kam hai
ho o ab hare note ka mol hai kya
socho kuchh oonchi baat zara
ab baat karo toh laakhon ki
dekhenge khwaab karodon ke

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho o ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani

aaj sanwar ke dekha jo darpan
apni nazar se sharma gayi ee
kiske hunar ka chal gaya jaadoo
kahaan thi kahaan se kahaan aa gayi
ho mera haar

iss heere ke haar mein kya hai
apna mol toh aanko
tum kya ho kya ban sakte ho
apne dil mein jhaanko
jhoothhe nakli sapne dekhe
jhoothhe nakli sapne dekhe
asli baat na jaani ho o o

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani

mil ke mere saath chalo toh
woh duniya dikhlaoon
jeete ji woh jannat kaise
milti hai batlaoon

tumko masheeha maan liya hai
ab jaana hai aur kahaan aan
tumse mile toh dekhe ujaale
varna dhuaan thhe donon jahaan
badlen hum aur yoon badlen
badlen hum aur yoon badlen
ho duniya ko hairaani ho o

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani

Hullo Atuldom

24th November 2019 is the 75th birthday of Amol Palekar – the actor who played a common man or the boy next door character so convincingly that it jolted the audience when they saw him play a cold-blooded murderer in Vinod Chopra’s “Khamosh” (1985). He played a similar grey-shaded character in “Teesra Kaun” (1994) and “Aanchal” (1980). So, it is not as if he always stuttered in front of a strict boss as in “Golmaal” (1979), “Damaad” (1978), a person who is hyper worried that he will die of some grave illness, leaving his beautiful young wife grieving – “Meri Biwi Ki Shaadi” (1979) etc.

In between he also attempted playing a different kind of character in “Pyaasi Aankhen” (1983). At least that is what I have deduced from the video that is accompanying today’s song. To be truthful, I had never heard of this movie or its songs till I thought of writing this post. I have heard two songs from the movie and they seem to portray a different kind of Amol Palekar. The movie feels like it will be a heavy, 4-5 handkerchief movie, as tear-jerker movies used to be called back then. This movie was directed by Ram Kelkar who was essentially a screenplay/ dialogue/ script writer for many movies like “Piya Ka Ghar”, “aasha”, “Aap Ki Kasam” and many more successful films. On further googling information on Ram Kelkar we find that he has directed only one other movie- “Duniyadari” in 1977.

“Pyaasi Aankhen” had star cast of Waheeda Rehman- Shabana Azmi- Asha Sachdev- Amol Palekar- Om Prakash, with music by Usha Khanna. Indeevar and Rana Saheri (never heard this name) wrote the songs which were sung by Asha Bhonsle Usha Khanna and Kishore Kumar. This is all the information I could gather on the internet;

I would love to know what the story is and why there is a romantic number between Asha Sachdev and Amol Palekar. Also, I would love to know if Waheeda Rehman played his all sacrificing mother, who is an eye-sore for the haughty daughter-in-law played by Asha Sachdev (my assumption) as I found a song that preached the story of a son who plucks out the mother’s heart because the d-i-l asked for it.

I also found a dance number where Amol Palekar and Shabana have actually done a Bollywood-style folk number. We have always seen this pair in semi-serious avatar as in “Apne Paraye”, Kumar Sahani’s “Tarang” (an art film), and a few more (cannot recollect off-hand).

Today we have a lively song sung by Kishore Kumar and Usha Khanna. After seeing the video, I must admit Amol Palekar is a person with a sense of rhythm and moves well to the beats, he didn’t make a spectacle of himself. He is joined by Om Prakash, Sundar and Shabana and we see Waheeda Rehman being dragged into the dance towards the end. Asha Sachdev is seen enjoying herself. This song from a lesser known movie is a discovery for me.

Hullo Atuldom

Na Chaahoon Sona Chaandi” was the first time I took note of this roly-poly cute- faced actor. He played Braganza, a head-fisherman and father to ‘Bobby’ in 1973. Subsequently I saw him as mama to the character played by Hema Malini in ‘Aap Beeti’ in 1976, a pathan who helps Manoj Kumar in ‘Shor’ (1972), a sardar who was a good Samaritan in ‘Roti Kapda aur Makaan’ (1974).

Then one day on chitrahaar or it could have been chaayageet on Doordarshan I saw a black and white song “Patli Kamar Hai” where this particular actor was super good-looking which was enough to sweep the lady he was wooing, off her feet. He came across as a dancer with a reasonable sense of rhythm. That is when I was informed by my dad that Premnath was a lead actor in many movies and rattled of names like ‘Aab-e-Hayaat’ (1955), ‘Baadal’ (1951), ‘Aag’ (1948) etc. and also sang a few of his songs from movies where he was the hero. Recently, not so long ago, I too saw a black-n-white movie, where Premnath played a ‘supposed’ poor boy who falls in love with a princess and helps the king regain his kingdom, the movie was an Arabian nights kind of story. Think it was ‘Saaqi’ (1952).

So I have loved movies where Premnath was Sir Juda (‘Karz’), Yamraaj (‘Lok Parlok’), IG Khanna (‘Kalicharan’), Bajrang Bahadur (‘Aap Beeti’), Shankar Dada (‘Dharam Karam’), father of a bevy of beauties (‘Ishk Ishk Ishk’, and the most memorable of them all – Rai Saab Bhupendra Singh in ‘Johnny Mera Naam’.  Thinking of him today on his birth anniversary he would have been 93.

There is another celeb of yesteryears who has her birthday today. And I wrote a post for her last month itself where I wrote this “I remembered that November 21st was the birthday of our dear Helen. She turned 81 yesterday (21 October 2019).’’ God only knows what I was thinking as I wrote that post and sent it hurriedly to Atul ji for posting. And the good man that he is, he posted it within an hour of my sending it. But the error was pointed out in the comments section by Partha Chanda ji and Prakashchandra ji. The next day Nahm ji, after reading the comments, messaged me to inquire if I was planning one more post for the actual birthdate and also to see if the song choices were clashing. I assured her that the choices don’t clash as we have a vast library to choose from.  I must say that we had an extra song and extra good wishes for our much-loved Helen.

As my practice has been over the years, I have managed to find a song which features both the birthday celebs. It is from the 1979 release ‘Magroor’’ which starred Shatrughan Sinha, Vidya Sinha, Premnath, Helen, Deven Verma, Nadira, Narendranath, Paintal, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Jagdish Raj etc. The film had music by Laxmikant Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi wrote the lyrics. Playback singers were Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Anuradha Paudwal, Mohd. Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and Mahendra Kapoor. All the 5 songs were duets.

Todays’ song is a club song where we see Helen (Rukhsaana) being wooed by a bunch of suitors (extras) and Premnath joining in on the fun. He is bodily lifted out of the dance floor by the cops at the end of the song. Playback for this song is by Asha and Mannada.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is a walk down memory lane for me. I had seen this movie with my dad in the movie hall and subsequently he had purchased the cassette of its songs too. The songs from this album along with those of “Yaraana”, “Qurbaani” and “Sholay” used to be played constantly on holidays and I had learnt all the songs from these ‘by heart’ prompting the elders in the family to comment that if I had shown similar passion in studies I would have been a topper, not that I was a bad student but I used to top only in mathematics and was reasonably good at all other extra or co-curricular activities.

But that is not the subject of this post.

The subject of this post is Zeenat Aman. It is her birthday today and I would like to present this song to emphasise on how stylish she was.
The song is from the 1978 release “Heeralal Pannalal” about which Atulji has written a very interesting post with this song .

“Heeralal Pannalal” made its debut on the blog with the Pancham- Asha Bhonsle duet on the occasion of Amjad Khans’ birthday. The next song posted for Premnath’s birthday was the second version of the first song posted. It was treated as two posts as the lyrics were different and RD had given entirely different look to them. The movie has six songs and the fourth came on the blog for Shashi Kapoor’s birthday and the fifth one is here for Zeenat’s birthday. I think we should rename this movie as Birthday Special. Whatsay?

The songs were the handiwork of Majrooh and R D Burman. Today’s song is a stage song. The song happens as the two innocent and kind hearted heroes are trying to run away from some goons and land up (drop on would be more correct) on the stage as the heroines are awaiting the arrival of two professional dancers to help them in some inter college competition. The professionals walk-in just as song is coming to a close. This is the first time that the couples meet.

Let us pray for the speedy recovery of Lata Mangeshkar who sings today’s song with Asha, Bupinder and Kishore Kumar.
Happy Birthday to you Zeenie a.k.a Zeenat Aman.

Happy Children’s Day to Atuldom

“Makdee” means spider. This was also the title of a movie in 2002 which was directed by Vishal Bharadwaj who was also the music director. This was one of the movies in recent times that portrayed children the way they actually should be – as bright, intelligent, naughty and playful. I am put-off when children are portrayed as miniature adults and made to mouth huge sentimental dialogues which I am 100% sure kids from normal upbringing would not even dream of. My definition of kids from a normal upbringing is where the only thing that a child has to do is finish their school, come home -play in the ground or backyard, do their studies for the next day, help around the family as per necessity, play mischief and be active through the day so that they sleep peacefully and wake up fresh to have their routines all over again. In between all this they should have time to read comics, novels, have memorable time with their grandparents and friends which will stay with them for their life as pleasant memories. ‘Makdee’ was one such movie.

It had Shweta Prasad play 10-year-old twin sisters – Chunni and Munni. Chunni who was a prankster and Munni the timid, studious kind. Chunni keeps fooling around the village and constantly gets into trouble with the local butcher Kallu along with her friend ‘Mughal-e-azam’ and on one occasion Kallu chases them around the village and in the melee Munni runs into a mansion which is famous around the village as to being haunted. Then what follows is Chunni’s struggle to find her sister, save her from the clutches of the witch who resides in the haunted mansion, and in the process solve the case of all the persons from the village, who went missing, when they ventured into the mansion. She also is felicitated by the collector of the district as she finds the reason for the witch (Shabana Azmi) making the mansion her home- a hidden treasure.

‘Makdee’ had all the elements that would was needed in a children’s film- fun/ fantasy and a moral – which is the essential of any story telling session with kids. The moral being that “you cannot cry wolf always, as a time will come when people will stop believing you.”

14th November is celebrated as children’s day in India in memory of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. He was fondly called chacha Nehru and it is said that he was fond of children. I remember my father used to tell me about his school trip to Delhi when he was in class 8 or 9 and they were fortunate to have an audience with the then Prime Minister Pandit Nehru and what an experience it was – today’s youngsters would use the word AWESOME. My father was also proud about nearly sharing birth dates- his birthdate was 15th November. In fact, he used to say that it was not difficult to remember chacha Nehru’s death anniversary as that was the date he landed in Mumbai from Ahmedabad for his job and found all available forms of transport had stopped as a mark of respect to the departed leader. But that is not the purpose of this post.

Let us move on and enjoy this lively song which shows the exact emotion a child will have when it is a holiday from school or vacation or there is an unexpected holiday declared due to rains, bharat bandh, or death of some trustee or anyone remotely important. Here I will confess that I see myself as Chunni, Munni, Mughal-e-azam and all the kids in this movie. I identified with them.

hullo Atuldom

B. R. Chopra’s romantic comedy “Pati Patni Aur Woh”, based on the “seven-year itch” of Hollywood starring Marilyn Monroe made its blog debut on 25th February 2009 with the most famous song of the movie thhande thhande paani se nahaana chaahiye. After three years na aaj thha na kal thha was posted on the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s Birthdate. After almost a full year Sudhirji gave us this article on a song which can be called as a “movie inside a movie” song.

All the posts with these songs give us a fair idea of what a fun movie “Pati, Patni Aur Woh” was. Hence, I am not writing any gist of the movie. The idea to revisit this movie came as there are promos of a modern version of this movie being shown on Television these days. I found that there are five songs in the movie and three have been posted on the blog. On going through YouTube, I could find only four songs from the movie. (resolution: shall sit through the movie one of these days to see if it has the missing song). I remember that “o duniya ke rakhwale” was used in the movie, actually only one line of the mukhda, when Sanjeev Kumar wants to reset his alarm clock. That was in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor.

I am trying desperately to refrain from writing what a fine actor Harihar Jethalal Jariwala -popular as Sanjeev Kumar- was, or about his comic timing or about his smart looks and smile. I am also not going to list out the wonderful movies that he has acted in or how much I love seeing him in emotional scenes. We have a brilliant post by Sudhirji mujhko to qaatil ki itni pehchaan hai which will give us a picture of the kind of actor Haribhai (as his friends in the industry addressed him).

Today on the occasion of the 34th remembrance day of Haribhai we can have the last available song from “Pati Patni Aur Woh”. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor, written by Anand Bakshi and Ravindra Jain was the composer. This lively song is at the wedding of friends of the lead couple, who later go ahead and get married (in the movie 🙂 ). The song kind of follows the qawwali format. This was one of the movies where Sanjeev Kumar acted his age and was not an aged person meaning senior citizen.


Song-Ladki cycle waali (Pati Patni Aur Woh)(1978) Singers-Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Ravindra Jain

Hullo Atuldom

Let us all wish the Baadshah of Bollywood on his 54th birthday.

Wish this was an audio post, then I would have started my post with what we used to hear on the radio Ads in the 70s and 80s. I would have first played a line “aashiq hoon main qaatil bhi hoon” then after the voice over by a Vijay Behl or Ameen Sayani or a Vinod Sharma or it could be Harish Bhimani (I don’t remember the names of all the announcers, sorry) the Radio Ad would have closed with the repeat of the last line of the mukhda of the song – “Baadshah o baadshah, baadshah hey baadshah, baadshah”.

But then this is neither an audio post nor a radio ad. But our today’s birthday boy is a huge fan of those days, when we used to hear songs on the radio. Up the volume when our favourite song was played and sat glued to hear all the details of the song viz: singer, lyricist, composer, movie name etc. And if due to some disturbance on the frequency waves or any other reason we missed the details then we would have to wait for god-knows-how-long to hear it again. Because back then, Radio Ceylon and Vividh Bharati were our sole source for HFM- Doordarshan happened much later and IMDB and other sites were not even on the horizon. Right Birthday Boy? I am talking of our Sudhirji here. We have seen him mention about his love for HFM being fed by what he heard on the Radio in many of his posts.

He is an ‘Aashiq’ of film music and is so knowledgeable about its many aspects. And he keeps discovering new angles of HFM and his posts are rich because of this constant search of his. And occasionally he also doubles up as Atulji’s most trusted aide in keeping the blog running. Thank you Atulji for introducing us to Sudhirji- the dilldaar Dilliwala. Wish you a very Happy Birthday Sudhirji, may you never run out of ideas for new posts and series.

November 2nd also happens to be the birthdate of music director/ singer Anu Malik- son of yesteryear-music director Sardar Malik. He has been around in the industry since 1980 – debuting with an obscure movie “Hunterwaali 77” (never heard of this movie before 🙂 ). He has worked his way to the A-list music directors with successful albums like “Mard”, “Sohni Mahiwal”, “Ganga Jamuna Saraswati” etc. His albums of the 90s had many melodies which got their movies a slightly long run at the box-office; movies like “Sir”, “The Gentleman”, “Vijaypath”. “Naaraz’’, “Naajayaz’’ etc. Music by Anu Malik in “Chamatkaar” was the first collaboration of SRK (the other birthday boy for today). Subsequently Anu Malik has given music to a few of SRK’s movies- “Baazigar”, ‘Ram Jaane”, “Duplicate”, “Baadshah”, “Josh”, “Asoka”, “Main Hoon Na” etc etc. Wish you a very Happy Birthday Anu Malik.

As can be seen in the list in the previous paragraph we have a huge library from which to choose a song for today. I have had suggestions from my Peevesie and Nahmji too about which could be a good choice for today’s triple birthday and I am settling for the song with which I opened the post as I have inside information about the possibility of Peevesie’s suggestion being fulfilled today.

From his debut in movies in 1992 to 1998 SRK had about 3 or 4 releases every year. 1999 had only one SRK movie- Baadshah (it was after the success of this movie that Shahrukh was given the epithet “Baadshah of Bollywood”), which was directed by Abbas – Mustan. It had him playing a bumbling detective with Sudhir, Johnny Lever, Sharad Sankhla, Harpal as his team mates and Twinkle Khanna was the female lead. It had Rakhee and Amrish Puri with Sharat Saxena, Deepshika, Sachin Khedekar etc in supporting roles and Shashikala and Prem Chopra in guest appearances. Our song today is from “Baadshah” which was written by Sameer and filmed as a disco song performed in a night club with Twinkle, Amrish Puri, Viju Khote etc as audience and Pankaj Dheer makes an entry towards the end of the song. It is sung by Abhijeet (who turned 61 on 30th October).

A very Happy Birthday to all the Birthday Boyz. Lets enjoy the party.


Song-Aashiq hoon main qaatil bhi hoon (Baadshah)(1999) Singer-Abhijeet, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Anu Malik

Lyrics

Aashiq hoon main

Hullo Atuldom

November has dawned. Here is the first birthday post of the month.

It is the birthday of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. This gorgeous Miss World 1994 is also a Padma award winner along with awards for Best Actress (Ham Dil De Chuke Sanam) and Best Actress in a supporting role as Parvati (Devdas).

She made her debut in movies after a brief stint as ramp model and modelling for products like Lux and Coca Cola where she appeared with Aamir Khan. Prior to that she had appeared in an ad for Pepsi with Amir Khan and Ritu Chaudhry (a.k.a Mahima Chaudhry) – remember the ad where the girls are Amir’s new neighbours and he jumps out of his window to run across and get a Pepsi for the girls and tries to impress them and Aishwarya appears as Sanjana at the end. I found other ads featuring Aishwarya on YouTube for products like watches, beauty creams etc. The next step after modelling was movies which happened with the Mani Ratnam directed Tamil film “Iruvar” (1997) with Mohanlal, Revathi, Prakash Raj as co-stars. She made her Hindi debut the same year with “Aur Pyar Ho Gaya” opposite Bobby Deol. And then she has not looked back. She has played a passionate artist in “Kandukondain Kandukondain” (Tamil) 2000, Tagore’s Binodini in “Choker Bali” (Bengali) 2003, depressed woman in “Raincoat’’ (Hindi) 2004, Kiranjit Ahluwalia -a much abused wife who got international attention for burning her husband to death- “Provoked’’ a British-drama genre movie in 2006, a nurse looking after a paralyzed magician turned Radio Jockey who has filed a petition seeking permission to end his life in “Guzaarish’’ in 2010. All the movies that I mentioned here gave her critical acclaim and she had a good number of successful critical and mass appeal films. She has proved the general thought wrong that a heroine loses her popularity and star appeal once married and a mother at that. She has been under public scrutiny for everything that she does but keeps mum and doesn’t reply to the trolls that she is subjected to. Isn’t that noteworthy?

A few years back, for my niece’s wedding, I had purchased a saree which my sister-in-law loved very much and was looking for a similar one only in a different colour combination. I tried to assist her in finding that or a similar saree in the combo she wanted. I am happy to say I finally managed to get it for her on my recent trip to Calcutta (now Kolkata) during Durga Puja. I am sure this sudden off-track by me has jolted the reader into thinking what is the connection with Aishwarya Rai!!

Well it is connected with the song that is coming with this post. It is the almost like the saree that all the ladies are wearing in this song (disclaimer: neither the song nor the movie was reason for my sis-in-law’s liking for the said combination; she doesn’t even know of its connection with Aishwarya 🙂  )

Another connection is that this song happens at a huge haveli in old Calcutta for Durga Puja. It is from the 2002 Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed “Devdas” based on the book of the same name by Sharath Chandra Chattopadhyay. We have Aishwarya Rai dancing with Madhuri Dixit (another heroine whose popularity has not decreased post marriage and kids) at the Sindhoor- Khela which is an essential part of Dussehra during Durga Puja.

The song is in the voice of Shreya Ghosal, Kavita Krishnamurthy and KK. It was written by Nusrat Badr and Ismail Durbar was the composer. Saroj Khan is the choreographer for this magnificent dance which had the two heroines looking extremely gorgeous and they matched step-for-step brilliantly.

It is a song which is my personal favourite 2-heroine dance and I don’t think I will ever tire of seeing it. The choreography got Saroj Khan her 8th Filmfare award and it must be the only song which has a Wikipedia page.

I suggest a visit to the page (dola re dola   ) for interesting trivia about the song.

Today “Devdas” version 2002 makes its debut on the blog to Wish the blue-green eyed Miss World, Miss Photogenic and Miss World Continental Queen of Beauty – Asia- Oceania (sub titles that she won at the Miss world pageant held in Suncity -South Africa) a very Happy Birthday.

Hullo Atuldom

Let me wish a very Happy Deepawali to one and all. Let the festival light up our lives with lots of positivity love and peace. Let the new Samvat bring in prosperity all around. In all this let us try and make the life of everyone around us happy too. Dhanteras, Naraka Chaturdashi and Laxmi Pooja starts the festive week which goes on to Bhai Dooj and ends with Chat Pooja. May there be no issues of weight gain for anyone 😉

Now there are other things that group “Atulites” is celebrating today. One of us is having his birthday. Also, birthday wishes to the daughter of another atulite. God bless them with lots of health and happiness.

A few months back we had a party song for Atulji’s birthday which asked “where’s the party tonight?”; don’t remember the reply. But here is the next party and it is a song on Bhai with Kareena Kapoor Khan in tow and the whole “mohalla” joining in the celebration. As it is the whole country is in festival mood and this song fits in for the occasion.

A confession – I knew the existence of this song which was written by Shabbir Ahmed and composed by Pritam Chakraborty. But I hadn’t heard it completely. Neither in the movie nor on any music channel. As I sat to write it for the post and heard it, I knew this was a song which our birthday boy will love as it underlines his quality of being a great host. Specially the line “aao jahaaz mein ya bharke truck se”; he will definitely say “aaj ki party meri taraf se”. Another thing which I realized is that this is the end credits- song of the 2015 Kareena Kapoor- Salman Khan blockbuster “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” which was directed by Kabir Khan. The song features the entire cast of the movie which includes Nawazuddin Siddique, Sharat Saxena, the child – who played the ‘mute central character’- Harshaali Malhotra, and all the actors who played parents to Kareena and Harshaali. Much like the whole of Atuldom wishing our Atulite and Daughter of the other Atulite on their birthdays. Gang work 😉

I am sure the regular followers of this blog have guessed who is the Atulite I am wishing. He was one of the first follower and farmaish(er) of the blog [sorry for the hinglish word and wrong grammar.] He is a doston ka dost. An occasional NRA – non-resident Atulite. A very gracious host and then he also is a fan of HFM thanks to having spent a small part of his life in that sphere of the country where Hindi films were the only source of entertainment. A Rafi fan who is addicted to Kishore Kumar’s voice too. Fan of Rajesh Khanna who learnt to love Amitabh too. Over the years his love for Sahir Ludhianvi’s work has grown that by no means, means that he doesn’t appreciate other lyricists. He loves to occasionally slip into the Punjabi way of speaking and loves to hear Urdu in songs and poetry. I am speaking of Rajaji. Wishing our dear Rajaji a very Happy Birthday.

I don’t know much about the daughter who has her birthday today. Don’t even know her name but all the best to her too. I hope, she too, will like today’s song. May she have lots of dreams and may they come true.

Happy Deepawali once again to all!!!

Hullo to Atuldom

Its been a few weeks since I wrote a post. I have missed the birthdates of a few of my favourites. I won’t put the blame of these misses on the festival season as then we will have to excuse Atulji his numerous blank dates on the blog which we don’t do; we expect at least one post per day from him.

I get notifications on my mailbox from one of the many music compilation sites which I had stumbled upon a few years ago. I don’t open mail notifications that often specially from this site but today I did. It had songs which I had not heard in years. Today’s list began with the song “my name is Suzy” from “An Evening in Paris” and then played a few numbers in various genres.

One of the songs made me sit up. I had never heard this song which was in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. I quickly googled for it and found that it was a song penned by Amit Khanna and Bappi Lahiri was the composer. And no, it was not a disco song or nor was it what we generally expect from the Bappi Lahiri baton. I heard it twice and then went looking for its video. I had another shock. It was picturised on Helen and no it was not a typical Helen-style item or cabaret. The expressions she gave in that song reminded me of another Helen- Bappi Lahiri song.

All this put me on a search mode for the details of the song which I heard today. One thing it did was remind me of the song from “Paanch Qaidi”- “Jeena to hai par ae dil kahaan”. But here are the details of the song- it is from a movie called “Josh” which was released in 1981. It starred Vidya Sinha, Helen, Sarika, Sheetal, Amjad Khan, Anil Dhawan, Raj Kiran, Deven Verma, Shakti Kapoor etc. The movie was directed by Raj Sippy. It was his second film after “Inkaar”. The common factor in the two movies being Amjad Khan, Vidya Sinha, Helen and Gurbachan. From what I read about the movie on IMDB.com Amjad Khan played a central character and Vidya Sinha had a role which was different from what she was known to play. If the movie had been successful, we would have had all the main actors in “Hatke” roles but that was not to be.

After hearing the song, I remembered that November 21st was the birthday of our dear Helen. She turned 81 yesterday (21 october 2019). Here is wishing her a healthy life with all her friends and dear ones around her. Here is the song which I liked hope all the followers of the blog like it too.


Song-Sab kuchh to hai sab kuchh toh thha(Josh)(1981) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Amit Khanna, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

sab kuchh toh hai
sab kuchh toh tha
kaise kahein hum
