Hullo to all Atulwaasis

So, we are on that date of the year when we write a special post for a very special person. We have two posts by kids of the 70s who grew up listening to the works of this special person. For once I waited to see what these two are going to say before I pen my own thoughts. This is because I have come to realise that the three of us love the same things about this person- his multi talents- singing (first and foremost), comedy (acting), direction, music direction and he has also written a few songs. We are his fans and he was said to be a huge fan of K.L. Saigal. His aim was to sing like Saigal.

Yes yes, I am talking about our very own Kishore Kumar. The one and only actor who could do comedy while romancing his heroine- saw him, again, in “Dilli Ka Thug” this morning and fell in love with his “Hum toh mohabbat karega” all over again. Even in “Haal kaisa hai janaab ka” his romance is steeped in comedy.

But his sober songs were a class apart- “koi humdum na raha, koi sahaara na rah”, “mere Mehboob qayamat hogi aaj ruswa teri galiyon main mohabbat hogi” to name only two.

He was not trained in music classically or any other form; but never sang a note out of tune. I have heard RD Burman say in some interview a long time back (has to be long time ago as he himself died in 1994) that when they were recording “Mere naina sawaan bhaadon phir bhi mera man pyaasa” RD was briefing Kishoreda about the nuances of the song and the raga it was based in. And Kishoreda is said to have replied “tu mujhe yeh sab mat baata, kya gaana hai bol main gaata hoon.” (don’t give me all these details, just tell me what I should sing).

But I know of a song where in Kishoreda has tutored Goddess Saraswati (that is what many consider Lata Mangeshkar to be) on the do-re-mi of Indian music- I mean there is a song where Kishoreda has given playback to Dev Anand (one can’t escape this combination no? ) who is the music tutor to Tina Munim for whom Lata Mangeshkar was the playback. But of course, in another song the vice versa has also happened- Kishoreda has been tutored by Lata.

When Kishoreda finally chose to do more of singing and less of acting was when he re-emerged as the voice of Rajesh Khanna. But his debut as a playback singer had already happened way back in 1948.

If one charts the life and times of Hindi film music from say 1944/45 to 1987 we see that all three of those whom we had special posts on in the last fifteen days- 2 birthdays (Mukesh and Kishoreda) and one death anniversary (Rafisaab) were active at this time (Kishoreda being the last to leave us). And we have a great song by the trio on our blog Hum ko tumse ho gaya hai pyaar ktya karen . (I don’t know if such a song was there in the period when the three were younger.)

Another fact which I just realised is all three had just stepped into their 50s when they passed on… eerie isn’t it?

But we will not talk of sad things when we speak of Kishoreda. He was a full of wit and charm and pranks kind of person.

I am not in the habit of talking of my personal experiences or sharing my thoughts of the time when I was a kid or adolescent or younger (to put it in one word). Why? Because I never used to listen to songs as a Rafi/ Kishore/ Manna/ Mukesh song. I always needed a song to be playing in the airwaves. It is no different even now. I was as much a fan of “Kya hua tera wada” as of “Rafta rafta dekho aankh meri ladi hai” or “main pal do pal ka shayar hoon” or “ae bhai zaara dekh ke chalo”. I suppose I used to connect the songs with the visual images that used to accompany them. But this post is not about me. It is about a singer whose work I have loved.

We all know Kishore Kumar was chosen to be voice of Rajesh Khanna, or that Kishoreda himself credited RK to be cause of his resurgence. This shows that he must have had a humble personality. As far as I can recollect he had been doing great work with Dev Anand, till then. And later too his work with a Dharmendra/ Sanjeev Kumar/ Shashi Kapoor/ Jeetendra/ Amitabh Bachchan/ Vinod Khanna & Mehra/ Rishi & Randhir Kapoor/ or all the other heroes including the ones who debuted in the 70s/80s was not below par.

Can one forget “ghungroo ki tarah”; “musafir hoon yaaron na ghar hai na thikaana”; “pal dil ke paas tum rehti ho”; “intehaan ho gayi intezaar ki”; “geet gaata hoon main gungunata hoon main” to name a few. All these melodies-Oh God! Thank you for giving us Kishore Kumar this date in 1929. Wish you a lot of fun time Kishoreda (as Rajaji has said in his post) with some of your loved ones who are up there with you.

Today I am at a loss as to which song should accompany this post. The statistics page of the blog says that we have 1030 songs of Kishoreda out of a possible 2709. 1679 songs are a few too many to choose from.

But I am choosing the easy way out and showcasing a song which I have mentioned in the post. We already have the song Gaa re mere sang mere saajna of the 70s where Lata tutors Kishore Kumar. Now we shall have the song from the 1980 Basu Chatterjee directed Dev Anand- Tina Munim- Girish Karnad starrer “Manpasand”. The movie was inspired by George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion. So that is the story of the movie in one sentence.

Amit Khanna and Rajesh Roshan were the lyricist and music composer respectively. This is a song which used to be by- heart for me ages ago. I simply love the way they dance through the song specially at the close of the song.

Thinking of you today Kishoreda, missing you too.

Hullo to all Atulites

Today is 1st August 2017 – the birth anniversary of Bhagwan Dada. He would have been 104. Phew! Whatever I know of Bhagwan Dada or Bhagwan is all hearsay and whatever I have read up on the various sites on the net.

Recently there was talk that his superhit “Albela” was to be remade with actors from this era as “Ekk Albela”; don’t know if that happened but there is a video of his most famous song “Bholi Surat Dil Ke Khote” where Mangesh Desai does a Bhagwan Dada and Vidya Balan is Geeta Bali. This video kindled an interest in me and I did some reading up on Bhagwan.

I know he was active in the industry till the 90s though in small roles and playing characters like a guitarist in “Aasha” (1980), “Hamse Badkar Kaun”, “Kasme Vaade”, “Charas”, “Kala Sona” etc. All the movies that I have mentioned had at least one song wherein he got to dance his famous dance made even more famous when Amitabh Bachchan made it his default step.

He had made his debut in the silent era – Criminal; codirected Bahadur Kisan in 1938 and went on to direct a string of low budget stunt and action films that were popular with the working classes. In most of these he played a naive- simpleton.

I have read somewhere that it was a slap (as part of some scene) that he delivered on Lalita Pawar that gave her that famous squint.

He turned producer in 1942 with “Jagruti Pictures” and went on to own “Jagriti Studios” in Chembur, Bombay. He made in “Albela” (1951) which was a huge hit. After this he teamed up again with C. Ramchandra and Geeta Bali to make “Jhamela”.

Details about the movie and the Bhagwan Dada- C. Ramchandra team is available on our blog as part of a post by our very own encyclopaedia.

Today on Bhagwan’s birth anniversary let us have one more song from “Jhamela” (1953) (the 4th to be posted). It is written by another Bhagwan Dada team member- Rajinder Kishan, singers are Lata Mangeshkar and Chitalkar.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

At the outset let me post my usual disclaimer: I am no encyclopaedia as regards the birth and death anniversaries of my favourite Bollywood actors, actresses, singers, music directors, lyricists, choreographers etc. I am assisted in keeping track of the dates by the list on our blog and the good old trust-worthy Vividh Bharati services of All India Radio. And today (27 july 2017) also I am writing this after looking up the list on our blog and listening to “Aaj Ke Phankaar” on radio.

Has anyone forgotten Saudagar Singh, Wajid Ali Shah, Dilawar, Hawaladar Sher Singh? Ok does the name Bishan or Bholaram ring a bell in anyone’s head? Ok all these are characters played by a person who is the son of a well-known yesteryear actor. The person I am talking of made his debut as a child star in the 50s and went on to do theatre on attaining adulthood. He had to wait for a while after his debut in 1973; to play a dacoit in a movie that ran in a single movie hall in Bombay (back then, called Mumbai now) continuously for almost 10 years.
Ahh! Now I am sure that the light of recognition has lit up in the minds of the readers. Yes, I am talking of Amjad Zakaria Khan alias Amjad Khan alias Gabbar Singh; son of actor Jayant. They were Pashtun with Afghan ancestry and Amjad Khan was born in Peshawar. He had his education in Mumbai.

He was seen in “Nazneen” in 1951 and “Ab Dilli Door Nahin” in 1957 as a child star. He is said to have made minor appearances with his father in a few films, done theatre and assisted K. Asif in the 60s during the making of “Love and God”. His debut as adult actor came in 1973 in the Raj Kumar starrer “Hindustan Ki Kasam”.

His next release “Sholay” made him a household name. He went on to play Saudagar Singh in “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin”, Nawab Wajid Ali Shah in “Shatranj ke Khiladi”, Dilawar in “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”, Hawaldaar Sher Singh in Kumar Gaurav starrer “Love Story”. The last-mentioned character was a deviation from the villainy roles that he used to essay at that time. It was a comic character complete with a funny moustache and he had a sweet way of saying- “Ek ludka ek ludki”. He played a cop who is assigned duty of tracking down the run-away children of rich parents- Danny and Rajendra Kumar.

He played a straight forward cop in Feroz Khan’s Qurbani. There his character was the bubble-gum chewing Inspector Amjad Khan who is on the trail of two thieves who decamp with jewels from Amrish Puri’s house. Amjad as Dilawar in “MKS” was a local goonda in love with a nautch girl who is misled to believe that Sikandar (Amitabh) is also a contender for the nautch girl which eventually leads to both killing each other.

Personally speaking, I have not seen the movie “Shatranj Ke Khiladi” but I have heard that he made a very good Wajid Ali Shah. I have seen Nasir Hussain’s “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin” n-number of times and every time his Saudagar Singh act has managed to startle me. These are only a few of the characters that Amjad played, I will not sit to analyse his act in all the 130+ movie he has acted in. His grey shaded characters of Damu (Damodar) in “Naseeb”, Mangal Singh in “Parvarish”, Avatar Singh (Bhoot Singh) in “Des Pardes”, Fazlu in “Dada”, Bholaram in “Hum Se Badkar Kaun” etc always interspersed his villainous roles. And no, I will not go on to describe my most love-to-hate character that Amjad Khan ever played- Gabbar Singh. The world knows a lot more about this act of his, how he prepared for it etc. than I can write about.

It is 25 years since Amjad khan passed away due to heart failure. And I was spoilt for choice as to which song to play/ post to remember him by. He was one of those multi shaded character actors like Pran who had a few songs filmed on him. Then I remembered that when I was browsing Hindigeetmala.net for some song last month I chanced upon a recital of a thumri which our Sadanandji has mentioned in a post of his. I feel this is as good a time as any to post it. It is from Satyajit Ray’s “Shatranj Ke Khiladi”- Sadanandji has given a very detailed insight into the movie in his post. I will just add that this is in Amjad Khan’s voice and Satyajit Ray himself has set the thumri written by Wajid Ali Shah to tune.


Song-Tarap tarap sagri rain gujri (Shatranj Ke Khilaadi)(1977) Singer-Amjad Khan, Lyrics-Wajid Ali Shah, MD-Satyajit Ray

Lyrics

tarap tarap sagri rain gujri
kaun des gayo o o saanwariyaa
ho bhar aayi ankhiyaan aan madwaari ee
tarap tarap gayi chunariyaa

tumhre ghodan more dwaare se jo nikase
sudh bhool gayi main baawariyaa aa

tarap tarap sagri rain gujri
kaun des gayo o o saanwariyaa

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Year- 1999. Months- June/ July. Region- Snow-clad Himalayas. Kashmir to be more precise. Kargil- Dras sector to be even more exact. Aim- to control the Siachen Glacier by establishing military outposts on the surrounding mountains ridges. This has often resulted in military skirmishes in the 1980s and tensions only escalated in the 1990s. In an attempt to defuse the situation, both countries signed the Lahore Declaration in February 1999, promising to provide a peaceful and bilateral solution to the Kashmir conflict.
“During the winter of 1998 -1999, some elements of the Pakistani Armed Forces were covertly training and sending Pakistani troops and paramilitary forces, some allegedly in the guise of mujahideen, into territory on the Indian side of the line of control (LOC). The infiltration was code named “Operation Badr.” The aim of the Pakistani incursion was to sever the link between Kashmir and Ladakh and cause Indian forces to withdraw from the Siachen Glacier, thus forcing India to negotiate a settlement of the broader Kashmir dispute. Pakistan also believed that any tension in the region would internationalise the Kashmir issue, helping it to secure a speedy resolution. Yet another goal may have been to boost the morale of the decade-long rebellion in Indian Administered Kashmir by taking a proactive role.
Initially, with little knowledge of the nature or extent of the infiltration, the Indian troops in the area assumed that the infiltrators were jihadis and claimed that they would evict them within a few days. Subsequent discovery of infiltration elsewhere along the LOC, and the difference in tactics employed by the infiltrators, caused the Indian army to realize that the plan of attack was on a much bigger scale. The total area seized by the ingress is generally accepted to between 130 km² – 200 km².

The Government of India responded with Operation Vijay, a mobilisation of 200,000 Indian troops. Finally, war came to an official end on July 26, 1999, thus making it as Kargil Vijay Diwas.

527 soldiers from Indian Armed Forces sacrificed their lives during the war”

This synopsis of the situation of 1999 is courtesy Wikipedia.

Whether made in Hollywood or Bollywood, movie makers have always had a soft corner for war themed movies. If the two world wars are the favourite of Hollywood, Indo-Pak wars have been the preferred theme of many Bollywood movies. Border (1997) had the 1971 war as its base as also Hindustan Ki Kasam (1973) and Upkaar (1967) had featured the 1965 war. LOC Kargil (2003) and Lakshya (2004) based their story on 1999 Kargil conflict. Though war was the basic theme in both the movies, Lakshya focused on the life of a young man who finds direction and meaning to life after joining the Indian Army and the final shot of the movie shows him hoisting the Indian Tri-colour atop Point 5179; a crucial vantage point dominating the army’s main supply line National Highway 1D. LOC Kargil focused on the many army officers, jawaans and their families; and war strategies and actual action too with a few real-life dialogues that were supposedly uttered by the jawaans when on duty etc.

The peak- Point 5179- has its northern side on the Pakistani side of the LOC; western side is a 1000ft vertical rock cliff; and the southern side 3km of empty ground with no cover. The young man (Hrithik Roshan) and a group of 12 officers and soldiers are assigned the mission to scale the 1000ft rock-cliff on the western side and flank the enemy stronghold. The unit sets off on their mission and while moving through a grass field toward the rock cliff, they come under fire. The unit discovers a Pakistani mortar unit in the field and destroys it, but loses their commanding officer and a number of other soldiers. The team’s radios are also destroyed, so they cannot communicate with battalion HQ. Out of the initial 12, only 6 remain. They decide to continue with the mission. They successfully scale the cliff and attack the Pakistani position during the night. Their assault is successful although Hrithik is wounded, and the team loses 3 more men. The next morning, Hrithik limps to the peak, where he plants the Indian flag and fires a flare, signalling that they have captured the peak.
This then is the background of Lakshya whose song I present here today on the occasion of Kargil Vijay Diwas. Lakshya was directed by Farhan Akhtar and starred Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta, Boman Irani, Lillette Dubey, Amrish Puri (guest appearance) and Sushant Singh, Om Puri, Raj Zutshi, Sharad Kapoor and Aditya Srivastav playing other important characters. Today’s song is sung by Hariharan, Kunal Ganjawala, Roop Kumar Rathod, Shankar Mahadevan, and Vijay Prakash. It is penned by Javed Akhtar and music is by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. This is one of my personal favourite movie with all its songs. And today’s song is a lovely marching song. Hope it is liked by all .

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Let us have a fun song from the 1981, Shomu Mukherjee produced & directed “Fiffty Fiffty” (and this is how fifty is spelt in the title card) which was certified on 15/10/1981 and released on 13/11/1981.

Today is the 98th birth anniversary of a venerated poet and song writer in our Hindi film industry. He is one of those lyricists in the industry, who has a significant portfolio of work but not much is known about his personal life. We only know that he started to work in the Hindi films in 1942. On our blog, the last two posted songs written by him are “Main Nainon Ka Saawan Bhulaane Chali Hoon”, and “Ek Gagan Panth Ka Pakheru”.
