Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is heavily inspired by this song. This 1973 song which was sung by Kishore Kumar had Dharmendra trying to pacify his upset love Rekha. He resorted to all kinds of buffoonery to get a smile on her face and also get her to admit her love for him

In today’s song Kishore Kumar’s son Amit Kumar is the voice for Dharmendra’s son Sunny Deol. Sunny is running behind a ‘roothhi’ Meenakshi Seshadri and trying to get her to re-admit her love. So, the situation is like this. Just before this song, Sunny -who is a boxer for his college- has been reprimanded by his coach (Viju Khote) for day-dreaming about Meenakshi. Consequently, he refuses to acknowledge when she comes to meet him at his coaching camp. Later, when Sunny goes to meet her at a cafe, she pays him back in the same coin and also gathers public support citing that he is eve-teasing her. Now, it is the duty of our naayak to ‘manao’ a ‘roothhi’ naayikaa.

Hence this song which is written by Anjaan and composed by Bappi Lahiri. As I have said in the previous paragraph the male voice is Amit Kumar’s and S. Janaki sings for Meenakshi Seshadri. This marks the debut of “Ghayal” (as written in the titles of the movie). This 1990 movie starred Raj Babbar and Moushumi Chatterjee as Sunny’s bhaiyya and bhabhi. Amrish Puri played Balwant Rai (the villain) with Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Om Puri, Ashalata, Shafi Inamdar, Annu Kapoor etc in supporting roles. There were a few actors like Shabbir Khan, Sudesh Berry and Mitwa who played Sunny’s support in his mission to expose the wrong-doings of the big-time businessman Balwant Rai. Disco Shanti had a dance number too.

I am writing this post to wish the ‘dhai kilo ke haath’ wala, hand-pump ookhadnewala (uprooting a hand-pump), strong dialogue delivery wala, son of Dharmendra and Prakash Kaur- Ajay Singh Deol a.k.a Sunny Deol- on his birthday today. . It is apparent from his recent movies that he is a huge fan of his father. He has acted in three editions of a movie whose title was inspired by a famous song of his father from the ’70s- the Yamla Pagla Deewana series. He also chose another of his father’s song from the ’70s to use as a title for a movie that he directed to launch his son Karan in Bollywood- Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. Additionally he has acted with his father in ‘Sultanat’, ‘Apne’ and a few more.
Happy birthday Sunny Deol

Hullo Atuldom

My family and some members of this world of Atulsongaday, which I like to refer to as Atuldom, know my love for a few actors from the Hindi Film World. Specially the actors who graced the silver screen in the 70s, 80s and early 90s. Many of the actors of that period are in the 60 to 75/80+ age group. Actors Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra, Rekha, Hema Malini, Zeenat Aman, Jaya Bhaduri, Dharmendra, some actors played character roles in that period etc. when they make an appearance on reality television I make it a point to see those episodes and on repeat if possible.

Kaun Banega Crorepati had one such episode on 15th October 2021. It was advertised as ‘Sholay Reunion Special’ (if I got the title right). It was like a reunion of school friends. Hema Malini and Ramesh Sippy were the guests who played the game for some charity. It was cute to see Hemaji and AB Sr. mouthing lines of all the characters – Gabbar Singh, Angrezon ke zamaane ka jailor, Veeru, Jai – whose pictures were flashed on the big screen. Hema Malini did the Jailor’s typical laugh and also “basanti inn kutton ke saamne matt nachna” and I was all eyes and ears. Imagine how soothing it must have been to see a sooper pretty lady, with her typical manner of speech, giving answers to the questions. Here I would like to mention that the questions were ‘made to order’ to enable Ramesh Sippy and Hemaji earn 25l to fund their charities. There were two highlights in the show; one was when Veeru joined the show over video call.
The other and more appropriate (IMO) part of the show was when they brought Reshma Pathan on the show. This is the lady who has played a body double for all the stunts that heroines were shown to be carrying out in the movies of the 70s and 80s. Hemaji and Rameshji showered their praises on this lady for helping out with the stunts in Sholay. They specially mentioned the action scene, after the Holi song, where a child is shown crying near the ‘merry-go-round’ and a lady comes running to rescue the child.

Towards the final section of the program they wished (in advance) The Beautiful Hema Malini for her birthday. I had also thought up a few possible songs to go with this post. Then I happened to see a comment on the blog, by Manohar Lal Dave, who had reminded that 15th October was the birth anniversary of Shankar of the Shankar-Jaikishan duo.

We will enjoy this song from “Sanyasi” (1975) of which the blog has five songs. This is the sixth written by Varma Malik and tuned S-J and it is sung by Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar.

Wishing the Ever-so- gorgeous, beautiful, elegant DreamGirl on her birthday with this song.

Hullo Atuldom

Navratri. Nine nights of festivities. Celebrated through the country in honour of Devi Maa, Maa Durga, or the Holy Trinity of Durga Lakshmi Saraswati. Also Rama’s victory over Ravana and rescuing Devi Seeta from Lanka. No wonder the 10th day of the festival is called Vijaya Dashami.
I have got a Whatsapp forward which gives a perspective of the day as ” Dussehra is a Sanskrit word which means removal of Ten Bad Qualities within oneself, namely
Ahankara (Ego),
Amanavta (Cruelty),
Anyaaya (Injustice),
Kama vasana (Lust),
Krodha (Anger),
Lobha (Greed),
Mada (Pride),
Matsara (Jealousy can also mean competition which is a result of jealousy),
Moha (attachment),
Swartha (Selfishness)”;

which means that ‘Vijaya over these Ten Bad Qualities. (I thought that this was a great thought and hence shared it here)

Dussehra marks the culmination of the Ram Leela, at various venues across the country, with the burning of the effigies of Meghnad (son of Ravana), Kumbhakarna (brother of Ravana) and Ravana himself. Dussehra is also the last day of the Durga Puja for the people from Eastern India (wherever in the world they be). The Durga Puja begins on the sixth day of Navartri, when the idols of the goddess is installed along with those of her children Ganesh and Kartik and Devi Laxmi and Devi Saraswati. Dussehra is the day when the idols are immersed in the holy waters of the rivers after morning puja, kumkum khela etc. Festivities in western India too come to a close with all the rituals associated. So we are at the end of one festival waiting for the next -Deepavali.

Let us bring this festival to a close with this all important aarthi which is from “Purab Aur Paschim” (yes, there are some songs from this film yet to be posted). In the film this traditional aarthi plays at the start to set the story of the movie in motion. It shows Ashok Kumar (whose birth anniversary it was two days ago) leading a group of devotees which includes Kamini Kaushal and Nirupa Roy (13th October was her death anniversary). As the song plays, we see the Union Jack being lowered and replaced by the Indian Tricolour. The movie too becomes ‘color’ from ‘black-n-white’. The aarthi is also used to introduce almost all the characters of the movie, we see ‘Bharat’ growing up from Master Alankar to Manoj Kumar and Bharathi (south Indian actress) growing into ‘Gopi’. The movie closes with the aarthi as Saira Banu accepts that she has liked the Indian way of life and her mother Shammi and brother Rajendranath also join the aarthi.

The aarthi is in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor, Brij Bhushan and Shyama Chittar. The music director for the movie were Kalyanji Anandji, who have stuck to the traditional format in here.

Happy Bijoya/ Vijaya Dashami to one and all.

Hullo Atuldom

Remembering our very own Abhas Kumar Ganguly with this post on his death anniversary. It is 34 years since he bade goodbye to this mortal world but his works are still with us- his fans and followers.

He was a versatile singer, actor, writer, producer, director, composer etc. In short an all-rounder who was the voice of many generations of actors beginning with Dev Anand for whom his voice was first used in 1948. World over, lovers of Hindi film music just love and adore this artiste and he himself was a huge fan of the actor-singer of the early-talkies and films of the ’30s and ’40s- K.L. Saigal. Abhas Kumar Ganguly had a great respect for the poet/ musician Rabindranath Tagore.

He could sing an ‘eena meena deeka’ with the same ease as he sang ‘koi humdum na raha koi sahara na raha’. His fans loved his voice on Ashok Kumar, Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Jeetendra and every single actor that graced the silver-screen from 1948 (when he made his debut) to 1987 (till death took him away from us). There were some actors of the older generation (meaning ’50s and ’60s) who had other singers as their permanent go-to voice; but Kishore Kumar (as Abhas Kumar Ganguly was popularly called) sang for these people in the later part of their careers- post 1970, I mean to say. Kishoreda’s voice was used for the next generation of actors too meaning Dharam’s son Sunny, Rajendra Kumar’s son Kumar Gaurav, Sunil Dutt’s son Sanjay Dutt , and all of Raj Kapoor’s sons etc. in addition to the new entrant actors of the ’70s and ’80s like Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff etc. I have a feeling that if he had been around then the Khans of the ’90s would have sounded different but that was not to be.

It is Sharad Navaratri and so I searched for a song/mata bhajan to go with this post. I am not sure how many songs Kishoreda has sung in this genre, but I do remember there are a few under Bappi Lahiri and Laxmi Pyare’s music direction in some ‘made in South India’ films.
Today’s is from the 1986 release “Swarag Se Sundar”. On-screen Jaya Prada and Jeetendra lip-sync to Kishoreda and Lata didi and appeal to the Devi maa to cure the child of their family, of whatever ailment it is suffering from; the “dawa ki nahin, dua ki zaroorat hai” situation (I have seen this movie a few times over the years, the child is shown to have high fever).

“Swarag Se Sundar” was a movie directed by K. Bapaiah, had dialogues by Kadar Khan, songs written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi-Pyare were the music composers. Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar were the playback singers used. Mithun Chakraborty and Padmini Kolhapure played the second couple with Shubha Khote, Aruna Irani, Shoma Anand, Kadar Khan, Prem Chopra, Asrani, Bharat Bhushan, Satyen Kappu etc in supporting cast.
Thinking of Kishoreda on his anniversary

Hullo Atuldom

Another date of October for which I always need to write out a post for.

It being the birth date of an actor whose work I began liking post 1975- “Sholay” to be exact. I liked the way he delivered his dialogues. Some dramatic dialogues which he had casually uttered are iconic and classic and stuff which fans quote as legendary.

Remember ‘mere paas maa hai’ it was not said forcefully or with banging of fists or any such heavy add-ons. He was also given dialogues which were comic in nature -for example the cricket commentary in English that has made “Namak Halal” a movie worth watching; he even managed to squeeze in some comedy intto the fight sequence in the climax of the movie. But I always loved the late night scene in Asrani’s office when Amitabh Bachchan calls Asrani and Dharmendra for a meeting to discus the situation between Vasudha and himself. I know I need not mention that I am talking of the Hrishikesh Mukherjee ’70s classic “Chupke Chupke” and the expression that he had when he said “for safety’s sake main woh bhi batadoonga”- priceless. He was so nice at depicting his emotions and I may have mentioned this a few times in earlier posts about how the scene between Sanjeev Kumar and AB Sr. in “Khuddar” was memorable as both the actors spoke with their eyes. An added advantage the film industry had when working with AB Sr. was he was good in action sequences too and is known to have enacted many of them without using a body-double or ‘stuntman’ (in filmy parlance). He managed to overcome his awkwardness where dance (a necessity in Indian movies) was concerned. He has also tried his hand at singing for his characters; for which initially, he was made-fun-of as he was considered to be a tuneless singer but he has sung and many of them have been very popular with his fans.

Today’s post which celebrates this all-time favorite actor of mine turning a year older or a step closer to 80 has a song from the 2003 (can’t believe this film was 18 years back, time has just flown) B R films production and Ravi Chopra directed “Baghban”. It had music by Aadesh Srivastava and Uttam Singh and songs were penned by Sameer. Alka Yagnik, Hema Sardesai, Richa Sharma, Sneha Pant, Udit Narayan, Aadesh Srivastava, Sudesh Bhonsle and Amitabh Bachchan were the playback singers used.

This song is pictured with an emotional Raj Malhotra (AB Sr.) singing, and yearning for his wife Pooja (Hema Malini) who is staying with one of their sons and he himself with another son. The story of ‘Baghban’ was something which was popular in the 60s and early 70s; but even this movie was successful with the new generation moviegoers. This song can also been seen as proof of what I stated earlier in this post viz. “actors speaking with their eyes”; here it is Hema and AB Sr. They have played the old couple so convincingly. The song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and Alka Yagnik.

Here is wishing the (once) Angry- Youngman, Shahenshah of Bollywood, Star of the Millennium, Big B or AB Sr. (people in entertainment industry have been addressing him in this manner for a few years now) a Happy Birthday and lots of good health.


Song-Main yahaan tu wahaan zindagi hai kahaan (Baagbaan)(2003) Singers-Amitabh Bachchan, Alka Yagnik, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Aadesh Srivastava

Lyrics

Hullo Atuldom

10th October is the birth date of the ageless Bollywood Diva Bhanurekha Ganesan.

I don’t remember which was my first post on the blog on her birthday, but over the last few years I have been trying to write out a song and present her with an actor who was not one of her regular heroes; meaning someone except Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Jeeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Mehra etc. Today’s song is also one such song.

This song is from the 2000 release “Bulandi” which was directed by T. Rama Rao. It had a cast of Rajnikanth (special appearance), Anil Kapoor, Harish (from South Indian films), and Rekha, Raveena Tandon, Aruna Irani along with Shakti Kapoor, Ranjeet, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Paresh Rawal, Sadashiv Amrapurkar in supporting cast. Songs of the movie were penned by Anand Bakshi and tuned by Viju Shah. The playback singers used were Udit Narayan, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Anuradha Paudwal, Jaspinder Narula, Sukhwinder Singh, Abhijeet and Alka Yagnik -in short all the popular singers of the 90s.

The movie was the tale of a family of Zamindars which is headed by Rajnikanth who has a sister -Aruna Irani and three sons Anil Kapoor (double role plays two brothers) and Harish Kumar. Rekha plays the zamindar’s elder daughter-in-law who is the bhabhi-maa to her devars. And here I would like to mention that the two Anil Kapoors are not twins. Today’s song happens at the girl’s family meeting the boy’s family ritual and the older Anil Kapoor is the groom-to be. Aruna Irani the would-be atyaa (paternal aunt) starts the song as cue to the coy Bride-to-be who then begins singing and also fantasizing about her hubsand married life etc
There have been many instances when big a star/ actor accepts a role in a film because the main actor/ character is being enacted by a senior star/actor of whom the junior is a fan. Like for example, Amitabh Bachchan played Dilip Kumar’s son in Ramesh Sippy’s “Shakti”. Similarly Rekha played miniscule role in one of Dev Anand’s final movie, “Censor” and also one of Manoj Kumar’s last directorial.

Anil Kapoor did a second rung character in this film as he was sharing screen space with a senior (workwise)-Rekha. And the dance that accompanies sees Rekha and Anil Kapoor matching each other decently well. It is only recently I found out that there is just two year age gap between these two actors but one began working in 1966 (age 12) when the other might have been in school and not even given a thought to what career to pursue. That must be one of the reason why the viewer may feel that Anil Kapoor was acting with a much senior actress, she was a senior only because she was already in the entertainment business for 14 years before Anil made his debut.

The singers for this song are Kavitha Krishnamurthy and Udit Narayan.

Happy birthday to Rekha. May we keep seeing her on the silver screen.

Hullo Atuldom

Day 1 of Sharad Navratr. Ashwin Navratr. Various names for the same festival, various ways to celebrate. I have received pictures of ‘Ghatta-sthapana’, ‘Devi Shailputri’, and of course the South Indian ‘Bomma Kolu’ (or Golu depending on your mother tongue). There is a lot of beauty in the manner in which we decorate our Gods and enjoy the festival. There are special offerings, poojas, archanas, bhajans and BHOJANS too (going by the name ‘Bhog’). Then there is the ever so colour raas garba in Western India, Gujarat and Maharashtra in particular. (May not be organised on a grand scale this year, as we are still worried about the consequences of the Pandemic. Grandeur can wait)

Here is a Devi Maa bhajan to kick-off the festivites. It is from the 1978 release ‘Khoon Ki Pukaar’, the synposis of which is there in this post. The movie was directed by Ramesh Ahuja for Tahir Hussain’s TV Films. It had songs penned by Hasrat Jaipuri and Gauhar Kanpuri and music director was Bappi Lahiri. Today’s song is sung by Mohd. Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar and on-screen, both, Pran and Vinod Khanna lip-sync to Rafisaab’s voice and Aruna Irani sings in Lata didi’s voice. We can also see Shabana Azmi and Reeta Bhaduri seated among the devotees of the temple.

As per what I have seen a few years back, this song is used by Amjad Khan (Daku Zaalim Singh) to send a message to Daku Sher Singh (VK); who is recovering under the care of pujari Baba (ex. Dr. Bhushan played by Pran); through Bijli (Aruna Irani). That should make viewers understand what Aruna Irani and VK are exchanging in sign language (‘ishaaron ishaaron mein’ sounds better, I suppose)

With this we also remember the ever oh-so-handsome and oh-so-good looking Vinod Khanna for his birth anniversary which was yesterday. He would have been only 75.

Hullo Atuldom

“Pukaar” (2000) was a Rajkumar Santoshi directed and Surinder Kapoor, Boney Kapoor, and Bharat Shah production. It had dialogues and screenplay by Anjum Rajabali and Rajkumar Santoshi, lyricists were Majrooh Sultanpuri (who wrote four songs) and Javed Akhtar (wrote two songs). A R Rehman was the music director. The cast was headed by Madhuri Dixit, Namrata Shirodkar, Anil Kapoor; Farida Jalal, Girish Karnad, Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Danny, Rohini Hattangadi, K D Chandran, Anjan Shrivastav, Govind Namdeo, Mukesh Rishi etc. in supporting roles. There was a surprise element in the cast, which I shall get to later in the post.

The movie was a fictional account of the terrorist problems plaguing India. We had Anil Kapoor playing Major Jaidev Rajvansh and Farida Jalal and Girish Karnad played his parents. Major Jaidev has Pooja (Madhuri Dixit) as his childhood friend who has been in love with him forever. The Major and his fellow officers manage to rescue a leading politician and also capture the terrorist (Abhrush played by Danny) who has masterminded the kidnapping of the politician (Govind Namdeo).

The movie had all the masala needed for calling itself a patriotic movie- terrorist (supposedly from Pakistan), corrupt politician, men in uniform who go beyond their prescribed calling in tracing/tracking the terrorist in spite of being severely wounded or even dying in the melee. The whole movie is set in some picturesque hill-town which has a colonial Town Hall where the climax takes place. The terrorists decide to blow up the town hall and its clock tower with the help of time-bombs and our severely wounded hero with his highly repentant girl friend (why the girl is repentant can be understood if one sees the movie)- who are both tied to structure- have all the time duration of the song/ event being held in the premises of the Town Hall to discover and deactivate the bombs.

We are having the song that is being staged during the climax with this post. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. On screen the person lip-syncing the song is Lata Mangeshkar herself (the surprise element that I wrote about earlier). I was awed when I saw the song for the first time ever all those years back – 21 years back to be exact. She was only 71 then. The song has The Lata Mangeshkar playing herself and singing this plaintive appeal to end all violence. She appears in her trademark saree with a group of kids who also emote the song rather well. We can see Girish Karnad and Farida Jalal in the audience and Danny stealthily making his way into the premises using forged ID card.

We all know that Lata didi (as the whole entertainment industry addresses her) had faced the camera at the beginning of her career. Recently I received this video of a Marathi song where she appears with her sisters in the group of children singing at a party. Our blog also has the first ever song in Hindi which was for the marathi movie “Gaja Bhaau” (1943).

Same date, last year, Atulji has taken up the daunting task of trying to list every single Hindi movie where Lata Mangeshkar has even ‘hummed’ a line. That series was kicked off with this post. That is material for about 64 posts and at the rate of one-post per week we reached post number 53 this Monday, the series kick started on her birthday, last year.

I may not be a huge fan of this “Bharat Ratna”, but I always try to sing her songs and admire the way she modulates her voice to suit the situation, actor and emotion of the song. I love many of the songs she has sung but will not sit to enlist them here.

Me, with my feeling of being a candle in front of such a huge personality, also try to send a post/song to wish this Nightingale lots of good health and cheer.

Hullo Atuldom

Today we are revisiting a movie that released in 1966 and was directed by J B H Wadia. The songs were all written by D.N. Madhok and C Ramchandra was the music director. It had 8 songs of which only 2 are on the blog. These are the ones posted:

Song Remarks
Duniya banaane waale ne post by Sudhirji marking 4200th post of the blog and has a lot of info about the actor Sajjan.
Tasveer bhi dekhi thhi this is also a post by Sudhirji.

Interesting notes are present in this second post about how C Ramchandra and D N Madhok have collaborated only twice (before this movie) and that too in the beginning of their careers.

Both these posts provide links to Memsaab’s blog and the synopsis/ review to the movie. BTW I forgot to mention that we are revisiting “Tasweer”.
As I sat to write this post my aim was to look for movies starring Zulfiqar Ali Shah Khan whose birthday falls on 25th September. He would have turned 82. I was paying particular attention to movies at the start of his career. I stumbled on a few movies where he had made uncredited appearances and the songs associated with them. I found that most of his initial songs are already present on the blog. I also found the song which was his absolute first appearance. I looked up for the song on the blog and also posted a comment pointing to the actor’s presence (that is the reason for my noticing that detail Nahmji).

I am sure the followers of the blog have figured out that I am talking of the very handsome, smart, fashionable, uber-cool icon of Bollywood. An actor, who in the later half of his career made super cool movies which were all phenomenal successes. His movies were peppered with great music, action and emotions. He had a special liking for the Cow-Boy getup. We are remembering Feroz Khan today. Sudhirji’s post of 2017 gives us a lot of insight on Feroz ‘stylish’ Khan and his career, I am sure I can’t better it.

Today’s song see him dance with Helen. We have Kalpana sitting, getting sad and shedding a tear and Sajjan (in a french beard) as part of the audience.

Hullo Atuldom

I am super charged as I sit to write this post. I don’t know how to express my SURPRISE that the songs of this movie are yet to appear on the blog. I made a quick call to Atulji to confirm that this movie has not yet made its debut. I was making sure that it doesn’t appear under any other spelling. Atulji said that he is aware that it is yet to debut, so let us have it.

This 1980 release is a fantasy film based on a story from the Arabian Nights. Something that every child would have grown up reading, hence I am refraining from giving the story/ synopsis. I shall just say that this film had a generous dose of romance and romantic songs along with good quality action scenes. The film was an Indo-Soviet joint venture with the Uzbek director Latif Faiziyev and Indian director Umesh Mehra directing a set of Bollywood stars/actors and some Russian, Caucasian and Central Asian actors. Anand Bakshi and RD Burman were in charge of the songs that are popular till today and only three singers were used- Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.

Before I present the song I would like to go into flashback with this song. That was to wish the actor Prem Chopra on his birthday. In there I had mentioned how his pairing with Rajesh Khanna was sure formula for success in the early 70s- he appeared in 19 movies as a co-actor of Rajesh Khanna.

Another actor with whom he was acceptable to the audiences was Dharmendra with whom he has appeared in around 30 films.

There are other actors with whom he has been regularly appreciated with and has done sizeable number of films – like 16 with Manoj Kumar, 24 with Amitabh Bachchan. I would like to know the count of films that Prem Chopra appeared, with respect to other prominent actors like Dev Anand, Jeetendra, Feroz Khan, Sunil Dutt, Rishi Kapoor etc. I know for sure that he has acted in 4 movies with his idol Dilip Kumar.

In my post of the 23rd September 2018, I had also mentioned how there were numerous songs where the heroines will sing love songs with the characters played by Chopra in order to get a response from the hero. Today’s song is similar to Kitna mazaa aa raha hai(Raja Jani)(1972) with a minor difference. Here we have the heroine dancing to the tunes of the hero. The ultimate aim being to rescue the girl from her predicament and an unwanted marriage with the wily Shamsher (Prem Chopra). Here the hero Alibaba (Dharmendra) has come as a Jadugar and has promised Shamsher that he will do some ‘mumbo-jumbo’ and get Marjina (Hema Malini) agree to his marriage proposal. For starters, the Jadugar gets Shamsher to dance and Marjina stands like a statue. But when she sees her lost ‘paayal’ (called ‘ghungroo’ in the song) she recognizes the Jadugar and joins him in the song-n-dance routine.

I have read in one of Prem Chopra’s interviews in the past, that he is scared of snakes and that he was petrified to shoot this song as the last stanza has a snake appearing out of nowhere. So possibly the priceless expression that he has given was not acting.

Prem Chopra has been a great supporting actor for almost 61 years. He began his career with a Punjabi film in 1960, followed by brief roles in ‘Hum Hindustani’, ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ etc. ‘Shaheed’ along side Manoj Kumar can be said to be his breakthrough film. ‘Upkaar’ and ‘Do Raaste’ also need to be mentioned as they presented him with different types of characters in spite of being Gray-shaded.It is well-known that he is connected to the Kapoor Khandaan as his wife and Raj Kapoor’s wife were sisters so that also makes him a brother-in-law to Prem Nath, Rajendra Nath and Narendra Nath.
Here is wishing this Tall and Handsome actor on his 86th birthday good health and lots of happiness.

Presenting ‘Alibaba aur 40 Chor’ (1980) on the blog, with this song, which I have written without hearing the video. After writing the lyrics I heard the song and found one error in what I had noted. I found that in all these years (41 years) I was singing this one line bas hadd kar di o bedardi wrong.
