Today’s song is a multi-singer song. It is from the 1976 released Madan Mohla produced and directed “Dus Numbri”. It had Hema Malini {who seemed to be favourite of all the heroes of the 50s & 60s and wanted a lease in their career ;-)} Manoj Kumar and a whole lot of Manoj Kumar-movie-regulars viz Premnath, Pran, Kamini Kaushal and Bindu. The movie was a musical with six songs.

I have very vague memories of what the movie was all about. Something to do with Manoj Kumar and Hema’s families being friends at the start of the movie. Then Premnath gets into a group that has interests in printing fake currency, which Om Shivpuri or Pinchoo Kapoor (Hema’s father) accidentally discovers and so is promptly bumped off, which drives her mother crazy due to shock (mother is also played by Hema, that is shown in Kamini Kaushal’s flashback). Some twist in the story leads Hema to a local Aunty’s adda (tavern) and Manoj Kumar becomes a “Dus Numbri” who is out to expose the evil doers of society. He has Pran (a constable) shadowing him for most of the movie and who is later revealed to be a SP or Commissioner. Then we have Bindu, a dancer, who has some clue to the gang of currency-fakers and that gives us a situation for a song where we have Premnath, Manoj Kumar and Pran (in disguise of course) trying to outwit Bindu into parting with the die of the currency printer. Simple 🙂 . It is later that we come to know that even Bindu is also a cop-in-disguise. Here I must add that only Manoj Kumar’s horrible getup doesn’t give him away but all the other two actors can easily be recognized.

Two songs from the movie is already present on the blog. One was contribution by Avinashji –Ye duniya ek numberi to main dus numberi and other by Maheshji- Na tum ho yaar aaloo na hum hain yaar gobhi.
.
Here is the third song with Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Mukesh as playback singers. Let us enjoy it and wish Prem Nath Malhotra on his birthday today. He would have been 94 today.

He started his journey in Bollywood with “Ajit” in 1948 (of which we don’t have any songs on the blog). The same year we had Premnath in “Aag” his first association with Raj Kapoor and was RK’s debut as producer- director.

Incidentally Raj Kapoor’s wife Krishna was Premnath’s sister and his other sister Uma is Prem Chopra’s wife. Premnath’s brothers Narendranath and Rajendranath were also actors. He married Bina Rai, also an actress, in 1953 and his son’s Prem Kishen and Kailashnath (was called Monty in films) were actors. Prem Kishen’s daughter Akanksha is an actress and son Siddharth Malhotra is a director. (Even in these modern times there is a case of same-name confusion:- there is a Sidharth Malhotra who made his acting debut in Karan Johar’s “Student Of the Year” in 2012 who has no connection to the Premnath family).

We have many movies where Premnath has had his brothers-in-law as co-actors. We have seen him as father of Dimple Kapadia in “Bobby” which was his nephew Rishi Kapoor’s debut as an adult. That is also the first role of Premnath that I recollect. Can’t get enough of the head of a fishing community Braganza who had a peculiar way of speaking.

It was later when some black-n-white were telecast by doordarshan that I learnt that Premnath the actor first began as a hero to the likes of Madhubala, Bina Rai, Nimmi etc.I loved his acting in “Johny Mera Naam”. As also the lovable mama of Hema Malini in “Aap Beeti”, sardaar of “Roti Kapda aur Makaan”, etc. His was the central character of “Dharmatma”. He turned producer director after his marriage to Bina Rai. His last screen appearance was in 1985 in “Hum Dono” after which he reitred from acting. He passed away in 1992- 18 days before his 66th birthhday.

Remembering Premnath !

Hullo Atuldom

“Satta Baazaar” (1959) was a Nagina Films production. It was directed by Ravindra Dave and starred Meena Kumari and Balraj Sahni in the lead with Johnny Walker leading the supporting cast of Ramayan Tiwari, Asit Sen, Suresh, Uma Dutt, Narmada Shankar etc. Vijaya Choudhury played Balraj Sahni’s daughter Kala. It had music by Kalyanji Anandji and Hasrat Jaipuri, Shailendra, Indeevar and Gulshan Bawra were the lyrics in-charge. Hemant Kumar, Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, and Suman Kalyanpur were the playback singers.

Of the movie’s eight songs, four have been posted on the blog. The movie’s best and most popular song was posted on 21st February 2009:- Tumhen yaad hoga. The next song suno jee aankde ka dhandha came in 2012. It was followed by Chaandi ke chand tukdon ke liye. Zara thherhro jee Abdul Gaffa was the last song posted. It has a wonderful post by our in-house encyclopedia Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji. He has given us the story of the movie too in there along with the biography of actor Suresh (real name Nazim Ahmed as Sir has mentioned in his post).

Today’s song I discovered when I was looking for a song, when I was writing a post for music director Kalyanji’s anniversary in August and filed it away for use on another occasion. The occasion is the birth anniversary of Badruddin Jamaluddin Kazi popular as Johnny Walker.

He was born in Indore and came to Bombay (as Mumbai used to be called) to earn a living and help look after his family. He took up various jobs before becoming a Conductor in Bombay’s BEST Undertaking. His anecdotes are there in this this video where he speaks to Tom Alter about how he modulated his voice for enhancing his characters. That is an interesting video. He speaks about how Balraj Sahni found his way of going about his job good enough to recommend him to Guru Dutt.

Today’s song is a dance with folk art in it. It has Johnny Walker and Sabita Chatterjee (in Marathi getup) teasing each other on the occasion of Vijaya Choudary’s engagement.

Let us think of Johnny Walker entertainer and enjoy Mohd Rafi singing as if Johnny himself is singing in typical Marathi folk style. Suman Kalyanpur is the voice for Sabita Chatterjee.

Hullo Atuldom

“Saagar” (1985) had a cast of Dimple Kapadia, Rishi Kapoor, Kamal Hasaan, Saeed Jaffery, Nadira, Sharat Saxena, Shafi Inaamdar, Satish Kaushik, Lilliput and Madhur Jaffery. It was directed by Ramesh Sippy and was produced by G P Sippy’s ‘Sippy Films’. It was a vehicle for Dimple’s comeback into Bollywood after her sabbatical brought on by marriage and family life. She was making a comeback after a gap of about 11 years. Her heroes were also her age group so they made an eye-pleasing team.

“Saagar” was a simple love story of a rich boy falling in love with a ‘not-so-well off girl’ who helps her father run a tavern in a fishing village . She has a childhood friend (Kamal) who loves her but cannot get himself to profess it. Into this village the rich boy (Rishi) walks in, befriends Raja (Kamal) and falls in love with Mona (Dimple). There is also friendship between the three, almost reminiscent of Raj Kapoor’s “Sangam”. We have Ravi’s (Rishi) grandmother playing the spoke in the cartwheel of the lovers. We also have one friend sacrificing his love for the happiness of the other two.

All-in-all nothing spectacular just that the movie was entertaining and we had the lead actors giving good performances. The songs were written by Javed Akhtar, and RD Burman was the composer. He had Kishore Kumar (who won a Filmfare award for “Saagar kinaare”), Lata Mangeshkar, S P Balasubramaniam, Asha Bhonsle and Shailendra Singh singing the songs in the movie.

I am writing this post to wish the superstar of South Indian cinema on his 66th birthday. He has been in the industry from a young age. He began as a child-actor and I have written a brief about him in this post of mine four years ago. So let us get directly to the song and marvel at this actor’s ability to emote with his eyes.

The song is sung by SPB and is a party song which is a celebration of the characters birthday. It has Nadira and Lilliput who are aware of Raja’s feelings and Saeed Jaffery and others who are oblivious. The song also begins with RD’s trademark of making music with unusual instruments; here he has used a comb.

Wishing Kamalhassan all health and happiness today on his 66th birthday.


Song-Sach mere yaar hai (Saagar)(1985) Singer-S P Balasubrahmaniam, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-R D Burman
Chorus

Lyrics

sach mere yaar hai
bas wohi pyaar hai

sach mere yaar hai
bas wohi pyaar hai
jiske badle mein koi to pyaar de

kyaa faasle ae kya manzilen

jiski kismat koi yoon sanwaar de
wohi dildaar hai ae
yaar mere
ho o yaar mere

sunte thhe hum ae zindagi
gham aur khushi ka mel hai
hum ko magar aaya nazar
ye zindagi wo khel hai
koi sab jeete

Hullo Atuldom

“Duplicate” (release date 8/5/1998) was a movie that we went to see as a family because it had Shahrukh Khan in the lead. Those were times when we used to pick-and-choose movies which had decent or fun songs and some actor of our liking and we could take the children along. Thus we ended up seeing this ‘not-so-great’ story-wise film which was produced by Yash Johar and directed by Mahesh Bhatt. It had music by Anu Malik and lyrics were by Javed Akhtar. Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Udit Narayan and Shankar Mahadevan were the singers used. This was one of the cassette tapes that I had purchased as the kids loved its songs. Personally speaking, I enjoyed the movie as it was inane, illogical and simply masaledaar Bollywood stuff. The kind which helps us to forget ourselves during the duration of its screening.

This was Shahrukh’s first double role movie (1996 had seen him play a triple role in “English Babu Desi Mem”, but the characters he played didn’t share screen space) where he played a bumbling youngman out to get a job as a top chef in a big 5-star hotel. The other SRK was a gangster on the run. The movie opens with Manu, the gangster, trying to hoodwink the cops with the help of his girlfriend Lily (Sonali Bendre). Juhi Chawla plays Sonia Kapoor, a hotel HR Manager, who bumps into Babloo (chef SRK) when they get into the same Taxi (from different sides of course) and end up bickering about who had hailed the cab etc. The cab driver mediates and suggests that they share the fare as the destination is same- the hotel where Babloo has an interview to attend. The ride to the hotel is peppered with Babloo rehearsing for the interview and Sonia and the driver enjoying themselves. The highlight of the scene is when Babloo declares his goals in life which includes “feeding his girlfriend VADAPAV that he will make in the 5-star kitchen”. (I hope I am exact at this, Peevesie).

We had Farida Jalal playing Babloo’s mother who is disappointed with his career choice as her aim was to make him a wrestler like his father. The movie also has a sprinkling of supporting actors – Tiku Talsania whose aim is to nab Manu, Gulshan Grover playing the badman character, Sharat Saxena, Kunal Vijaykar etc. There is a guest appearance by Kajol (though I don’t recall much about that).

The songs were all fun to watch but there was one really lyrical song in the album which had Javed Akhtar at his romantic best (for this movie).This is the song with which the movie is making its debut on the blog today.

I would love it if the birthday boy would care to explain a few words of this song. I am hinting at our Dilldaar Dilliwala -Sudhirji. Last year I had wished that he didn’t run out of ‘ideas for posts and series’ and he came up with a “this week that year” series that is essentially analyzing the blog for that week 10 years ago. We are missing it for the last month and half Sirji!!! 🙂 We want more of it -‘Yeh dil maange more’.

It also happens to be Shahrukh Khan’s birthday today as also Anu Malik’s. One has ruled the hearts of his fans with his acting and the other has given songs that make the fans dance. One was born into the industry but worked his way up the ranks. The other had no filmy connection but still has had a good to very good career graph. The melodies that this team has dished out are mostly successful.

Cannot forget “kiska hai yeh tumko intezaar main hoon na” (Main Hoon Na); “ae mere humsafar ae meri jaan-e-jaan” and “yeh kaali kaali aankhen” (Baazigar); “apun bola tu meri laila” (Josh); “iss pyaar se meri taraf na dekho pyaar ho jaayega” (Chamatkar); oh there are numerous songs of this jodi that will feature in my playlist.

Anu Malik made his debut in 1977 and SRK made his debut first on Doordarshan in 1988 before Hema Malini signed him on for “Dil Aashna Hain” but his first release was “Deewana”. Both the movies had Divya Bharati as his heroine. then we had a deluge where we saw him in “Chamatkar” (first with Anu Malik as music director), “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” (first of many with Juhi Chawla), “Baazigar” (again Anu Malik and first with Kajol),etc. etc. He was given the Filmfare award for best actor for his anti-hero role in “Baazigar”. He has won awards as many as 14 Filmfare awards of which 8 are as best actor. He was awarded the Padma Shri in 2005.

Talking of Anu Malik, his father was the music director of the ’50s and ’60s. Recently I have subscribed to a channel which show evergreen classics along with programs like Sunheri Yaadein, Sitaaron Ka Caravan etc. One such treasure house program is Anmol Yaadein where in the host was interviewing Anu Malik. I saw Anu mention therein, that Sardar Malik was married to the sister of Hasrat Jaipuri. So as a child Anu, who was a fan of Shankar Jaikishan, used to pester his mama to take him along to the recordings where SJ were at work. Anu managed to meet his favourite composers through his mama (uncle Hasrat Jaipuri) and also play some music to them. Anu goes on to say that the legendary duo were impressed with Anu’s comfort when playing the Harmonium and he took it as their blessing for his future. He has worked with almost all lead singers of Bollywood starting with Manna Dey to many of the current day singers. He has been a judge on many Television shows.

Today’s song is in the voice of Kumar Sanu. It is filmed in the picturesque locales of Switzerland. In fact the church shown in this song is a famous attraction for Indian tourists and I recollect our tour operator making special mention of it as “the church where SRK has romanced a few heroines” mainly Kajol in DDLJ. This movie was not popular I suppose, or even this would have been mentioned.

Another thing which I would like to point out is the prominent use of the Tabla – Anu Malik’s favoured percussion instrument. It is used very nicely in the antara.

BTW I would love to know what is the meaning of “Katthai aankhon wali” as far as I understand the language ‘Kattha ‘ goes with ‘choona and supari’ in Paan (betel leaf).
Editors note:- (Katthai is the colour of katthai, viz bronish, so “katthai aankhon waali” means “browned eyed”.

Here is wishing our fellow Atulite a Very Very happy Birthday Sudhirji. In addition wishing the Bollywood jodi of Anu Malik and Shahrukh Khan on their birthday.

Hullo Atuldom

Wishing all a happy Dassera. I know parts of India celebrated the festival on Sunday and parts are celebrating it today. I think that has something to do with the movement of the Moon from one constellation to another or mostly the phases of the moon which doesn’t necessarily follow the Gregorian calendar. I was confused as to the exact date for Vijaya Dashami or Dassehra and put the query to a group of knowledgeable friends and this is the reply I got:

October 23 Friday 7:00 onwards Ashtami
October 24 Saturday 7:00 onwards Navami
October 25 Sunday 7:45 onwards Dashami
October 26 Monday 9:00 onwards Ekadashi.

Now going by that reply we have Dashami till 9 a.m. today but for convenience sake (read working day/ holiday) there are many (in Kerala atleast) who would have celebrated the festival. But for the pandemic even Ram Leela would have come to a close yesterday (Sunday) with RavanDahan, as Dashami was present in the evening hours. Don’t know if it was held this year!!!!

But today’s post is not a lesson on the Panchang that Indians follow and neither am I the competent authority to comment on the Sun, Moon and the planetary movements. As always my post is to wish a celebrity on turning an year older.

This celebrity is the daughter of Producer/ director of ‘Anhonee’, ‘Khel Khel Mein’ ‘Khuddar’ etc.Ravi Tandon’s daughter- Raveena Tandon turns an year older today. She made her debut in 1991, at the age of 17,in a movie produced by G.P.Sippy and directed by Anant Balani “PattharKePhool” which had Salman Khan as the hero. She then went on to act with Sunny Deol, Govinda, Akshay Kumar, Shahrukh Khan, Anil Kapoor. 1994 saw her star in “Zamaane Se Kya Darna” with Sanjay Dutt, “Dilwale” with Suneil Shetty and Ajay Devgan, “Insaniyat” with Sunny Deol, “Imtihaan” with Saif Ali Khan and Sunny Deol, “Laadla” with Anil Kapoor, “Andaz Apna Apna” with Aamir Khan, “Aatish” again Sanjay Dutt and Mohra with Akshay Kumar. She also played herself in a song-cameo in Saif Ali Khan- Akshay Kumar starrer “Main Khiladi Tu Anari” and a role in a Tamil movie in 1994. She took a hiatus post marriage but was seen in a cameo in PuriJagannadh directed “Bbuddah… Hoga Tera Baap” (2011) as she got a chance to do a romantic scene with Amitaabh Bachchan whose sister she had played in “Bade MiyanChhoteMiyan” in the ‘90s. Since 2011 we see her in a movie or two per year plus she has conducted a few shows on television. On her personal front, she had adopted two young girls when they were 10 and 8 when she herself was only in her 20s. After marriage she has two children of her own.

Her most popular song of the 1994 earned her the nickname the ‘mast mast’ girl. Though she has never claimed to be ‘Mast’ meaning wonderful. So also the other birthday personality.
He is our own Rajaji. He is (to use a Hindi expression) a ‘yaaron ka yaar’. He is a devoted family man. He is deeply sensitive and touched by many current occurrences in this world of ours. But the one thing that introduced us to him or shall I say the two things that got us connected to him-Cricket and Hindi Film Music are also dear to his heart.

He can write pages and pages about his love for the works of Sahir Ludhianvi and ponder about what would have been Sahir’s take on the life in this age and time. And he can do the same when he writes posts on his favourite Rajesh Khanna, Dev Anand, Mohd Rafi. He has told me that he can keep listening to Rafi songs all day and night and not tire of it. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t appreciate Kishore Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan etc. He claims that he is just discovering movies of the 80s which he had banished for their deteriorating quality and quantity, he gives them a “Pass” certificate only no high marks to them. But even there he may relish and enjoy individual scene of the typical masala kind. I am sure he will enjoy the visual that the accompanying song has to offer.

It has the comic cop Paresh Rawal running around trying to dance in step with Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon. We have Tej Sapru exchanging a briefcase with an associate (would like to know who it is). Suniel Shetty is stalking them and please keep in mind that Akshay Kumar is a cop in disguise out to catch Tej Sapru and his associate.

This is a new age song which should appeal to the other birthday girl of this group. She is not an active participant and her father is. I hope she is a “Mast” child, meaning wonderful child.
There is another person, my first playmate, who has her birthday today. I cannot imagine how I was as a toddler before she entered my family in the arms of my Mom.
With this post I wish Raveena Tandon, Rajaji and the two unnamed girls “A Very Happy Birthday” May God bless them with lots of Health and Happiness.

Hullo Atuldom

Today we are remembering a celebrity who began his life as a Professor of Civil Engineering in a Mumbai engineering college. A huge fan of Dilip Kumar, he was spotted by comedian Agha when he was performing in a play “Taash ke Pattey”. The play was recommended to Dilip saab who saw it, and signed this Professor/ stage actor for “Sagina” and “Bairaag”. This was the start of a career that spanned from the ’70s to 2019 – Govinda starrer Rangeela Raja released in 2019.

This post is about Kadar Khan who was born in Kabul to Afghan parents. He was educated in Mumbai and graduated as a civil engineer. His career as a writer in Bollywood took off when he was offered to co-write the script of “Jawaani Diwaani” by Narinder Bedi. This was followed by dialogue, script writing for over 200 films in addition to acting in around 300.

I am unable to decide if he was a better actor or writer. I am unable to decide if he evoked more emotion in the public as a villain or comic character actor. I am in love with his pairing with Govinda in both serious and comic roles. There are many movies to choose from where they have showcased their comic timing but that does not mean that they couldn’t emote serious situations. They have played grandfather -grandson in “Jaisi Karni Waisi Bharni”, father-n-son in “Haseena Maan Jaayegi”, “Sindoor”; father-in law son-in-law in “Dulhe Raja”. I don’t know if David Dhawan brought out the best in them. But it is to Rajesh Khanna’s credit that Manmohan Desai paid Kadar Khan handsomely for writing the dialogues of “Roti” in 1974.

I loved him as the lovable old man in “Gharwali Baharwali”, “Saajan Chale Sasural”, “Mr & Mrs Khiladi”. He was cute as the outwardly-submissive husband of Bindu in “Biwi Ho To Aisi”. He played a similar character with Shashikala as his wife in “Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani” (1988). He has played serious characters too as in “Yaarana”, “Adalat”, “Roti”, “Tohfa”- there is a whole list of such films.
He has had a few songs picturized on him in his long and illustrious career. Some have been philosophical and some have been funny. He has also tried to dance in some of these songs and it used to be rather cute to see.

In today’s song too, we see Kadar Khan play a slightly old character who is frustrated by the presence of a “Dhaaba” in the premises of his five star hotel. He has tried all possible tactics to evict the dhabbawala. The competition in the song is one such attempt.

This song is written by Sameer and Anand- Milind are the music composers. It is sung by Vinod Rathod and Sonu Nigam. The song has a lot of well-known couplets strung together rather imaginatively and that had made it appealing to the younger generation of that period. Besides being a song from my own ‘list of loved songs’ it also belonged to my dad’s list. He must have seen this movie every time it came on television and so have I. I am sure that the song was inspired by the song from “Padosan”- “ek chatur naar” going by the way the characters are emoting- all over the top.

The movie had Raveena Tandon as his daughter and Johnny Lever played Kadar Khan’s Man-Friday who is in cahoots with the dhabbawala -Govinda- who feels that he should be the “Dulhe Raja” of the hotel owner Singhania -played by Kadar Khan.

“Dulhe Raja” released on 10th July 1998. This was one of the 13 films that released in 1998 with Kadar Khan in the cast, he was definitely a busy 60-year old in that year.

Hullo Atuldom

13th October happens to be the death anniversary of an actress who has played mother to all Bollywood actors and some actresses too.
Nirupa Roy. She was often called the “Queen of Misery” as she has portrayed characters that are forever in sorrow and tragedy. There are many jokes about how she was a careless mother and has been separated from her children in film after film. She was permanent mother to Amitabh Bachchan in movies made in the 70s and she has played his foster mother even in “Lal Badshah” which came in 1999, think that was her last release too.

In the interim Dharam, Shashi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Mehra and Khanna Rishi Kapoor etc have also been the apple of her eye. She made her debut in 1946 in a Gujarati film “Ranakdevi”. The same year saw her act in a Hindi Movie- “Amar Raj” with Trilok Kapur as hero. She was routinely cast in mythologicals in the ’40s and ’50s and it is said that people used to visit her home to get her blessings. “Do Bigha Zameen” (1953) was an important film of her career where she played the wife of Balraj Sahni the farmer who loses his land to industrialization. In later years, she co-starred Balraj Sahni as mother to three school-going children in “Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani” (1970) and a doting bhabhi to his brother Randhir Kapoor in “Jawaani Deewani” (1972). She was also the heroine to P.Jairaj, Ashok Kumar in many of the movies of the ’50s. In ’70s, when she began doing character roles she was still wife of Ashok Kumar or his bahu as in “Santaan” (1976) and “Anurodh” (1977).

Personally speaking I became aware of this mother only through “Deewar” (1975) and later “Amar Akbar Anthony” (1977). Subsequently I have seen a lot of movies where she was sometimes ‘strict and sweet at other times’ mother and loved her smile.

Today we remember this sweet mom of Bollywood with a song that sees her wishing her ‘ungrateful’ son and his family all the best in life at the birthday party of her grandson. It is from “Santaaan” which had this famous song.

One other multipart song from this movie is present on the blog. I have given a brief about this movie in the comments of this song. Here is the penultimate song of the movie which had music by Laxmi-Pyare. Verma Malik was the lyricist. This song is sung by Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

deke duaayein mamta ki ee

woh sukh tujhko mile ae ae
teri khushiyaan mangoon itna hai adhikaar mera
itna hai adhikaar mera
meri dua hai sada
meri dua hai sada
rahe sukh se sansaar tera

maata pita ki sewa se ae

duniya ne insaan se unko
bana diya bhagwaa aan
itni sewa karna jag mein
ho satkaar tera
jag mein ho satkaar tera
meri dua hai sada
meri dua hai sada
rahe sukh se sansaar tera

aaj khushi se jhoom raha sara pariwaar tera
sara pariwaar tera
meri dua hai sada
meri dua hai sada
rahe sukh se sansaar tera

kabhi jo aaye yaad meri
toh hona nahin udhaas
mann ki aankhon se dekho
rahoon sada tumhaare paas
phoolo phalo aur khushiyaan dekho
tum phool ho mere chaman ke
saath rahoongi main bhi thhandi
pawan ka jhonka ban ke
yug yug tak na bhool sake
mamta ko pyaar tera
mamta ko pyaar tera
meri dua hai sada
meri dua hai sada
rahe sukh se sansaar tera

Hullo Atuldom

This post sees the 20th November 1981 released “Gehra Zakhm” (as written in the titles of the movie) making its debut on the blog.
It is possible that the success of “Dada” (1979) prompted the casting of Amjad Khan in a pivotal role in this, since in that period he was known more for his negative characters. Vinod Mehra was the hero -just as in “Dada”. Ranjeeta Kaur, Kadar Khan, Sheetal, Jagdeep, Satyen kappu, Om Shivpuri etc formed the rest of the cast. Master Mayur played the young Vinod Mehra and Master Titoo played Amjad Khan’s childhood. Master Ravi plays the child who is rescued by Amjad Khan from Kadar Khan’s goonda and restored to his mother with some heavy duty dialogues to the effect that “maa se badhkar koi cheez nahi”. Jagdeep is Vinod Mehra’s (Vijay) friend who keeps urging the educated unemployed Vijay to live honestly and stop coming up with get-rich schemes.

Just before I started writing this post I had a look at the movie until the point of this song. It has Kishore Kumar and Sapan Chakraborty singing for Vijay and Jimmy (Jagdeep) as they go about on a cycle along the streets of Bombay by night. They are hoping that their fortunes change and they are able to enjoy the luxuries of life. Leena Das is the dancer in the last stanza.

This movie had two lyricists- Vithalbhai Patel and Nida Fazli- penning five songs that were set to tune by Rahul Dev Burman. Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Bhupinder, Anand Kumar (have seen his name against a few songs, but no info on him), Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar and Udit Narayan were the other singers in the movie.

I chanced upon this song when I googled for songs of Kishore Kumar which were not by regular lyricists meaning Anand Bakshi, Rajinder Krishan, Majrooh etc. Not that I don’t like their work, it is just that we feel that KK has not sung any other writer’s work. I also have been trying to present songs which KK has sung for actors other that Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh.

As we all know one of Vinod Mehra’s earliest songs “geet gata hoon main” had Kishore Kumar giving playback. That had the distinction of being composed by Shankar Jaikishan and written by Dev Kohli and stood at number 18 in that year’s Binaca Geetmala.

To start of with he was a reluctant actor. His debut was as playback for Dev Anand. He had a solo and his first ever duet with Lata Mangeshkar in that movie after which Lata – Kishore duets have been a norm for all leading pairs. And we have 206 of those duets on our blog. We have many duets of Kishore Kumar on the blog where he has sung with Mukesh, Mohd Rafi, R D Burman, S Balbir, Amit Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor and Shailendra Singh. Today we have a song with a new partner.

The first decade saw him singing one or two songs per movie; the maximum 7 songs he sang was for “Jaalsaaz” in 1959 and 8 songs for “Suhana Geet” also in 1959. But people say that his best period was post “Aradhana” in 1969 but we cannot close our eyes to “Jewel Thief”, “Guide”, “Half Ticket”, “Manmauji”, “Jhumroo”, “Rangoli” and all the other movies for which he has lent his voice.

Yes, post 1969 he has been used for actors as varied as Sunil Dutt, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, even Pran and his own brother Ashok Kumar. Kishore Kumar’s voice has been used successfully for all heroes of the ’70s through the ’80s till death snatched him away from us 33 years ago.

Remembering this excellent actor, singer, producer, director, music director and artist on his anniversary.

Hullo Atuldom

“Coolie” was released on 2nd December 1983. It was produced by Ketan Desai and directed by Manmohan Desai. Kadar Khan was the script writer as also the dialogue writer. It starred Waheeda Rehman, Rati Agnihotri, Shoma Anand, Rishi Kapoor, Kadar Khan, Satyen Kappu, Goga Kapoor, Suresh Oberoi, Om Shivpuri, Nilu Phule, Ashalata (who passed away recently),and Shubha Khote, Amrish Puri and Mukri in guest appearances. Of course it had Manmohan Desai cast Amitabh Bachchan in the title role with an Eagle as his companion. The Eagle was called Allah Rakha in the movie.

The movie had Kadar Khan give some great dialogues to his characters, some of which were heavy duty and some were funny. For example Iqbal introduces himself with “Humaari taarif zara lambi hai. Bachpan se hain sar pe Allah ka haath aur Allahrakha hai apne saath. Baju pe 786 ka hai billa, 20 number ki bidi peeta hoon. kaam karta hoon coolie ka aur naam hai Iqbal”. He follows it up with “jiske sar pe pad jaaye haath bache na uska ek bhi baal” and that get smirks from the audience. Then during the course of a fight scene with Suresh Oberoi, Amitabh Bachchan picks up a Hammer and Sickle, holds it up in a particular fashion and mouths “Hum mazdooron ka seena lohe ki deewaar hai, aur yeh humaare hathyaar hain. Yeh humara pet paal bhi sakte hain aur tum jaison ka pet phaad bhi sakte hain”.

“Coolie” was a movie that was slammed by the critics as the worst ever etc. but was lapped up by the paying public. It has attained cult status over the years. Puneet Issar was just a villains’ henchman when he was signed for the movie but the fight sequence in which AB was hurt made Puneet Issar famous. And the smart Manmohan Desai froze the scene in the final cut of the movie and a message appears on screen marking it as the shot when AB was injured. Apparently this was done at Amitabh’s behest. That was the kind of relation that AB shared with Manji (as Mamohan Desai was called by his friends).

One thing was on display in 1982. The level of love that the public had for the actor by the name Amitabh Bachchan. When he lay comatose in a Bombay Hospital, a whole nation prayed for him. There were reports of how people made promises to their respective gods and even fulfilled them when he recovered and restarted work on 7th January 1983. It proved that the struggle that he had on the way to superstardom had borne fruit.

Just another matter that he was a good actor who made the incredible seem normal, like fighting a leopard, tiger and a crocodile at times, with bare hands (he was not the first one to do this onscreen) in “Khoon Pasina” and some other movies. He made it seem normal that a roadside orphan could grow up to be a well to-do do-gooder who is even benevolent on the man who insulted him when he was in his teens- remember “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”. He mastered rhythm and could move a leg to music without making a fool of himself. He was appreciated when he tried to sing in his tuneless style to begin with and he has sung around 20-30 songs in his career that started in 1969. Of course he has recited poems in “Kabhi Kabhi” and “Silsila”.

He has had a wide range of roles post 2000 when he switched tracks to play characters that are appropriate to his age. He has co-starred with heroes who are his children’s age group. He is one of the actors of that generation who still has movie-makers seek him with specific roles & movies. The other was Rishi Kapoor.

Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan have acted together in a number of movies first time being in “Kabhi Kabhi” 1976. Their first successes also came in the same year-1973. Rishi Kapoor’s “Bobby” and Amitabh Bachchan’s “Zanjeer”. The two were long time friends and the last time they collaborated was in “102 not out” in 2018.

This jodi has been my personal favourite from the first time I saw them. And it is but natural that I present this song of “Coolie”. It shows the two actors’ comic side. The two of them are not eyeing the same girl. Their target is the prize money that the girl’s father Mukri promises for bringing the girl back home. She has this penchant for running away from home and is in cahoots with Sunny (Rishi) who dons a new getup every time he drops her home. Only this time Iqbal has also spotted the girl and decides to drop her home and claim the prize money.

What I like about the song is the various outfits and wigs that AB and Chintu use. The detailing that has gone into draping Chintu with a dhoti that has extra width to cover the stilts when he is trying to compete with the elephant’s height. And also the pronounced jerks that AB and Shoma Anand experience when on the elephant which at first feels that they are having a camel ride.

This song is in the voices of Shailendra Singh and Shabbir Kumar. This movie was the first time AB had a different voice.
All in all a fun song to celebrate the 78th birthday of the superstar of the millennium who has also been given the epithet BigB.

Blog Day : 4467 Post No. : 15958

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s date(10 cctober 2020) is rather unique. Fellow ASAD follower Satyajitji, from down-under, pointed it out. 10102020- “never before, never again” was the reaction to that from another regular follower of the blog. Of course it is a “unique arrangement of the numbers that form the date which is appreciated by our brain”. A true statement by our in-house encyclopaedia.

Today’s post is a rather difficult one too. Never before have I faced such a dilemma. It is a case of too many options. I sifted through a whole lot of songs before I made a choice.

The song features a heroine who was not so great-looking when she made her debut in 1970. She was extremely ordinary. Very gawky. She has said in many of her interviews that she was very uncomfortable wearing all those funny, awkward dresses and costumes. She was not happy doing the dance steps she was made to perform. She was cast opposite heroes old enough to be her father- she was hardly 13 or 14 when she made her debut. She didn’t have an elder to guide her in choosing films like her contemporary Hema Malini who had her mother with her at every stage in her career.

Her first film was not in Hindi though; it was in Telugu as a child actress- not one but two- one as a 4-year old in 1958 and next in 1966 when she was 12. Her next film was in Kannada with Dr. Rajkumar as the male lead in 1969.

But she accepted all that came her way. She has survived in an industry where fortunes change every Friday. She learnt the art of perfect make-up first. Then followed it up with some strict regimen and went from gawky to gorgeous. She was already good at emoting and dancing she just polished them up and learnt from her job and gave it all she had. For some of her heroes she was a lucky mascot and sure route to success whenever their career hit a few flops. And Jeetendra has said this in so many words once. And she doesn’t tire of admitting that if given a second chance she will love to walk the same path again.

I need not specify that I am talking of Bhanurekha Ganesan who is popular as Rekha- the sweet heart of a whole generation of moviegoers. There was a time when Hema Malini was my personal favourite as also the favourite of a few of my classmates. Then I saw “Khoobsurat” 1980 (I don’t tire of telling this) following it up with “Agreement” “Jal Mahal” and the best of the times-“Umrao Jaan”. “Umrao Jaan” was the best in terms of acting, direction, songs and small wonder that she was awarded the National Award for the best Actress for that year. I had seen a few of Rekha’s movies prior to “Khoobsurat” too but most of those movies had her playing the typical film heroine where she just had to look an eye-candy flutter her eyelashes, sing a song too and scream her way through. But she was earnest in all of those too.

She was cast in many two-heroine movies like “Nagin” (this had more than two heroines), “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”, “Ram Balram” etc. She was heroine to actors of the 60s- Raj Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Rajendra Kumar, Dharmendra, Shashi Kapoor, Feroz Khan, Biswajeet, Deb Mukherjee, Sanjeev Kumar (I am sure I am missing a few) and actors who made their debut in the later years of the 60s- Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Sanjay Khan etc. She has also paired with Navin Nischol (hero in her debut film), Anil Dhawan, Randhir Kapoor, Rakesh Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, even Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakravarty. Some actors who were her fans as youngsters also got to be her hero- Anil Kapoor (another ageless wonder who has done two with her), Akshay Kumar for example. But Rekha herself did movies with Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand (whose fan she was) rather late in their careers. She was Shashi Kapoor’s Vasantsena in “Utsav” and Rakesh Roshan’s avenging angel in “Khoon Bhari Maang”.

Sorry I can go on and on and people will say a fan is at work here. But I cannot get enough of her and when I chanced upon this video of Hema Malini’s 70th birthday I was supremely pleased as it gave me both my favourites in one video. Such a lot of camaraderie between the two beauties, difficult to choose who is more beautiful

Getting to today’s song, it is from a movie which was directed by Manmohan Desai. As per the tradition of Manmohan Desai movies we have Randhir Kapoor and Shatrughan Sinha as brothers who get separated as children. Both like the same girl but the girl likes the simpleton from the village who has respect for even a night-club dancer. I shall not give the story of the movie will just give the name of the movie- Rampur Ka Laxman.

Wishing our ageless diva a very happy birthday with this song which shows her in one of those costumes that I spoke of earlier. It doesn’t compliment her and that hairdo was the standard which all heroines sported back then. Plus not to miss the kilos of makeup that she had on. If my memory is correct this was a song at the birthday party of the character played by Rekha and we have Sulochana (who was the mother of the heroes playing Rekha’s nanny), Roopesh Kumar, Raj Mehra, and a smart young looking Ranjeet (who is waiting in the wings for spoiling the party).

Song-Arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan (Rampur Ka Laxman)(1972) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyon mere yaar
maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali
arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

jo bhi kare pyaar
main uska yaar
ghalat mujhe na samajhna
main to yahaan
aaya hoon milan ke liye
main subah shaam sabka ghulaam
itna magar yaad rakhna
bura hoon main
bas dushman ke liye
ulfat ke jo pyaase ho tum
chaahat ka hoon mai nbhi sawaali
pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise waha
kyon mere yar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

abhi ye sama hai meharbaan
jhoom ke jeele deewaane
kaisi ee haaye mastaani raat hai ae
zindagi ka lele maza
phir kya ho kaun jaane
bhaai mere ae
kuchh na tere haath hai
do char pal lehraake chal
hai zindagi kab rukne waali
pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

khel hansi aadat meri
chup rehna main na jaanoon
maine yahi ab tak jaana nahin
tum bhi mere
tum bhi mere
sabko apna hi maanoon
par ye dil sabka deewaana nahin
aur jispe hai deewaana dil
uski ada sabse niraali
pyaar ka samya kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali
