Hullo Atuldom

This post is thanks to the morning programs aired by Radio Ceylon (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation) and Prasar Bharati’s Vividh Bharati today.

The first song that I heard this morning was from the 1967 Bharat Bhushan starrer “Taqdeer”; a song from “Gateway Of India” (1957) was just over. And Jyoti Parmarji announced that the segment was a tribute to yesteryear actor Bharat Bhushan (14th June 1920- 27th January 1992).

The next segment played songs from “Thokar” (1953), Taxi 555 (1958), “Saaranga” (1960) etc; and Jyotiji said that the segment was remembering Sardar Malik (13th January 1930- 27th January 2006).

I am sure if I had listened further, I would have heard some lovely songs of Zia Sarhadi Sahab (1917- 27th January 1997). This youtube link will give us the songs played in that segment.

Then around 9.30 a.m. I switched on to Vividh Bharati and I landed on their “aaj ke fankaar” and I discovered that today is LOIN’s birth anniversary too.

So many yesteryear populars’ anniversaries. So I set out on my favourite activity- trying to find a movie or song featuring at least two of those who are being remebered today. And I had my EUREKAAA!!!! moment sometime back.

Today we are having a song sung by Mohd. Rafi, written by Madan Mohan (not the music director, please note) & Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and composed by Sardar Malik. It is from the movie “Maa Ke Aansoo” (1959). It was a movie which had Hamid Ali Khan, Nalini Jaywant, Neelam, Lalita Pawar, Agha, Ajit Kumar etc. Dhirubhai Desai was the director and more details about the movie can be had in this post Meri jholi ko bhar de of December 27th, 2011. Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukhji has given a brief about the movie in the comments to the post.

I am sure that it is well-known that Hamid Ali Khan was popular as Ajit. He started as an extra in many of his initial films to feed himself. He changed his name to Ajit on the advise of Nanabhai Bhatt. and played the main protagonist in films till sometime in the 60s when he switched to playing character roles and was most sought after villain in movies of the late 60s and most of the 70s. His character in “Kalicharan” (1976) pompously called himself “LOIN” of course that was his way of pronouncing the word Lion; similarly his “Rabbert” for Robert, “Mona Darling” are all unforgettable.
He would have been 101 today.

Sardar Malik passed away this date in 2006. He was active in Hindi Films from late 1940s and gave music for nearly 600 songs. I could readily recollect all the songs that SLBC played this morning. I just thought I will mention here that his children and grand children are connected with the music industry as singers, music directors etc. I also feel like mentioning that Hasrat Jaipuri was his wife’s brother.

Song-Hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan (Maa Ke Aansoo)(1959) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Madan Mohan (lyricist), MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

aandhi mein gunaahon ka diya jal nahin sakta
jo bachke aa pahuncha hai
anjaam tera tere hi haathon mein hai naadaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan
hai badh ke fariston se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

maathe se siyaah daag gunaahon ke mita de
gunaahon ke mita de
neki ke diye gham ke andhere mein jala de
andhere mein jala de
do din ki khushi ke liye tu bech na imaan
tu bech na imaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

jannat na ?? na yazeedon ke liye hai
jannat na ?? na yazeedon ke liye hai
Allaah ka ye ghar to shaheedon ke liye hai
hai waqt sambhalne ka
sambhal jaa arre naadaaan
sambhal jaa arre naadaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

kya teri duaaon se falak hil nahin sakta
falak hil nahin sakta
is dar se jo tu chaahe to kya mil nahin sakta

thhak jaayega neki se buraayi ka ye toofaan

hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

Hullo Atuldom

Wishing everyone of us a Very Happy Republic Day.

गणतंत्र दिवस की शुभकामनायें

This was my post last year for the occasion. & in that post I had lamented about ignorance among many citizens regarding the significance of 26th January and why it was chosen to be Republic Day.

“The 308 members of the Constituent Assembly, of thenewly Independent India, signed hand-written copies (in Hindi and English) of the Constitution of India on 24th January 1950 after much deliberation and some changes. The Constitution was adopted and came into effect throughout the country from 26th January 1950. Dr. Rajendra Prasad started his tenure as first President of India and the Constituent Assembly became the Parliament of India.

That makes January 26th 2023 India’s 73rd Republic Day”.

(I don’t mind making the above paragraph part of my posts every time I write for 26th January)

There are certain events attached with the Republic Day celebrations which I love to see, when shown live on Television and in repeat if I have missed the live telecast.

I like the way Doordarshan shows a brief history about how we attained Independence, how the Constituent Assembly was setup, and the signing of the Constitution itself. This is normally followed by the live telecast rom New Delhi’s India Gate where the Prime Ministers of India pay homage at the Amar Jawaan Jyoti which is at India Gate, to the departed soldiers; I love the serene atmosphere around the whole scene, the two-minute silence etc. Then the Prime Minister drives down Rajpath towards the saluting base and awaits the arrival of the President Of India who is also the Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Armed Forces. The National Flag is Unfurled, National Anthem is played, Awards for exemplary bravery on the warfront are conferred to recipients and then the Parade commences showcasing India’s Defence capabilities, Cultural and Social Heritage. The Armed Forces participate in the March Past accompanied by their bands; plus there are the NCC, Bharat Scouts & Guides, school children and Tableaus from the various states and Government agencies forming the second part of the parade. The climax of the parade is the Brilliant Fly-past by the Indian Air Force- showing us formations, showering Flower petals on Rajpath etc.

The event comes to a close with the singing of Jana-Gana-Mana. and the Presidential Cavalcade departs followed by the Prime Minister and other dignitaries. I am always amazed by the Horses that form the President’s Bodyguards- their heads are still when the National Anthem is on. The events of the Republic Day come to a close with the Beating the Retreat ceremony on 29th January, this is another charming event. Specially how the Marching soldiers walk back into the sunset and darkness at the end of the parade and the Lights come on at North Block, South Block and Parliament House. This event is held at Vijay Chowk and has trumpeters, buglers, pipe & drum bands of the three-wings of the Armed Forces.

A few changes have taken place in the last few years- Rajpath has been renamed as Kartavya Path and the Amar Jawaan Jyoti from India Gate has been shifted and merged with the eternal flame at the National War Memorial which is close by.

It is my tiny wish to be able to witness the events live atleast once in my life, but then as my dear family has always said we may not be able to get a close enough seat and see things as clearly. True, I don’t disagree. It is similar to saying that when we see a cricket match in a stadium we may not be able to see all the madness in all the stands of the stadium like we see on TV. But then the charged atmosphere at any venue cannot be felt in the TV, correct or not? I can say this based on my experiences gained at the various music concerts that I have attended over the last few years.

Let us get back to 26th January.

There are a few songs that are played on these National days- Saare Jahan Se Achcha, Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite hymn ‘Vaishnava Janato’ and Jhanda Ooncha rahe hamara- by the bands in the parades.

We all know that ‘Saare Jahaan Se Achcha’ was written by Allama Mohammad Iqbal in 1904. We know that Jana Gana Mana was by Gurdev Rabindranath Tagore. Vande Maatram was by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee.

But, personally, I was unaware about the other most important song that we are taught as kids in school- Jhanda Ooncha Rahe Hamaara. Only yesterday I came across a post in our blog by (who else) Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji. It enlightened me to the fact this was first used in a film in 1938 (any wonder that I like to call him Guruji).

What set me on this quest was a video that I saw recently on TV where I saw Rajnikanth accompanied by Sridevi, Swapna, A K Hangal and I think I spied Macmohan, walking along the lanes of some hilly region, in company of some locals, with the Tricolour in their hands and singing “Jhanda Ooncha Rahe Humara”. On further digging I came to know that it was from the 1991 released, Anil Sharma directed “Farishtay”. It was sung by Shabbir Kumar and the female version has Asha Bhonsle’s voice. Bappi Lahiri is the music composer. Lyrics have been credited to Shyamlal Gupta Parshad.

I looked up about the lyricist and this is what I found- Shyamlal Gupta Parshad belonged to Kanpur and had vowed to walk barefoot till India got freedom from the British rule. Shyamlal Gupta was born as the third child to Vishveshwar Parshad and Kaushalya Devi on September 9, 1896. He penned this song on March 4, 1924.

His song was recognised as the flag song by the All India Congress Committee and was sung for the first time on Jallianwala Baug Diwas 0n 13th April 1924; at Phoolbagh Kanpur in the presence of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Sarojini Naidu sung it in 1938 at the Haripura Session of the Congress where Mahatma Gandhi’s was present.

All this and more on Syamlal Gupta Prashad his family and there current status is available in this article which was the source from which I wrote the above paragraph.

Let us now hear the song from Farishtay (I would love to know if the movie makers have been true to what Shyamlal Gupta Parshad wrote all those years ago). But I can feel that the basic tune is same as the one that was used in the 1938 ‘Fearless Nadia’ film.

Let the us all say “Hum sab bhartiya hain”, “Saare Jahaan se achcha hindustan humara”, ‘Jhanda Ooncha rahe humara” and say with pride
Vande Maatram
Jai Hind
Happy Republic day to Indians

Hullo Atuldom

Kaahe ko byaahi bides posted on 30 march 2014 is a post where I had thanked all the lyrics writers of film songs for highlighting emotions of human beings and particularly women. I had said “WOW” to writers who cared for feelings of the Female of the human species. Specially the feelings at the time of “Bidaai” after the wedding rituals.

In that post I had also mentioned that songs with the heading/ title “Kaahe ko byaahi bides” has appeared twice on the blog until that date -30/03/2014. It is nearly 9 years since and fresh reviewing shows that we have the following songs posted with the said title

Song Movie (Year) Date of post Remarks
Lakhi baabul mere kaaahe ko deenhi bides Suhaagraat (1948) 7 December 2011 Credited to Amir Khusro
Kaaahe ko byaahi bides Heer Ranjha (1948) 8 December 2011
Kaahe ko byaahi bides Nadirshah (1968) 25 February 2013
kaahe ko byaahi bides Aadha Din Aadhi Raat (1977) 30 March 2014
Kaahe ko byaahi bades Jailor (1938) 7 August 2018 (post by Arunji)
Kaahe ko byaahi bides re lakhi baabul morey Jhankaar(1942) 24 February 2020 (post by Arunji & credited to Amir Khusro.)
Kaahe ko byaahi bides Umraao Jaan (1981) 4 March 2022 (credited to Amir Khusro)

As can be seen from the above we have seven versions of “Kaahe ko byaahi bides” of which ‘suhaagraat”(1948) “Umrao Jaan” (1981) & ” Jhankaar” (1942) give credit to Amir Khusro for the song. One version each have been credited to Wali Sahab, Kamal Amrohi, Majrooh Sultanpuri & Anand Bakshi. Another interesting result of this review- two of the posts are exhaustive, highly informative writeups by our in-house encyclopaedia Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji.

This is what he has said in his post dated 07/08/2018 about the use of this song in films :-

Today’s song is “Kaahe Ko Byaahi Bides”. This is a famous song by Amir Khusro. This has been used in several films like, Jhankaar-42, Heer Ranjha-48, Nadir Shah-68, Suhag Raat-48, Maang Bharo Sajna-80 and Umrao Jaan-2009, in addition to today’s song from film Jailor-38. It is also sung as a NFS by many famous singers. Mostly in films, the original song is mixed with some new lyrics and the credit is given to film’s lyricist. In film Jailor-38 too, the lyricist’s name is given as Kamal Amrohi.

All of what I have written above will make readers wonder where I am getting.

Of course I am presenting another version with this post. It is in the voice of Kavita Krishnamurthy, written by Anand Bakshi and tuned by Laxmi-Pyare. It is from the 1980 release “Maang Bharo Sajna” which was directed by T. Rama Rao and produced by A. Poornachandra Rao.

It had Rekha- Moushumi Chatterjee – Jeetendra heading a cast which also had Kajal Kiran, Asrani, Om Shivpuri, Parveen Paul, Yunus Parvez, Mohan Choti etc. The plot was essentially, an oft-repeated, melodrama where the hero falls in love & marries one heroine but has to, later, marry the other heroine who may have been selected by his family. At the time of the second marriage, the hero may believe that the first wife is dead or lost to him (as the case maybe) thus making the second marriage valid. Then the first wife will make a reappearance and then the complications will begin, leading to everyone being ready to sacrifice their love. Matters will get more interesting (for the audience) if the heroines are friends and infants are also present, then the climax will have one lady dying so that the other one live the rest of her life peacefully. This was the outline of most triangular love-stories, but was a hit-formula adopted by filmmakers to fill their coffers.

Today’s song comes at the close of the movie where we have a dying Rekha being accepted by Moushumi Chatterjee as her husband’s first wife. She instructs her husband to fill Rekha’s ‘Maang’ with Sindoor.

With this post we wish Kavita Krishnamurthy on turning a year older. This was one of her first recording for Hindi films. Of course, she had recorded ‘aayega aayega… aayega aanewaala” under Vilayat Khan’s music direction for “Kaadambari” (1975) and here is the post to that song as written by Sudhirji in his series “Songs Repeated In Hindi Films”.

That makes the song from “Kaadambari” her debut in Hindi films, which was followed by a song in Kannada under Bhaskar Chandavarkar’s music direction. Today’s song from “Maang Bharo Sajna” happened to be her first in the 1980s; however songs from “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” (1985) got her recognition; though there were other films between 1980 & 1985 were Kavita Krishnamurthy had sung songs most of which under Laxmi-Pyare’s music direction.

I had a very sweet experience last weekend. I got an opportunity to wish today’s birthday girl on the occasion of Sankranti. I interacted with her for a few minutes, wished her etc. She was gracious enough to let me click pictures with her. She told me that Bangalore is, now her favourite city, when I told her that I had met her once before too, on a flight from Bangalore to Mumbai.

Here is the song.


Song-Kaahe ko byaahi bides (Maang Bharo Sajna)(1980) Singer-Kavita Krishnamurthy, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

kaahe ko byaahi bides
lakhi baabul more
kaahe ko byaahi bides

paak bhara maine gudiyon ka chhoda
paak bhara maine gudiyon ka chhoda
chhoda saheliyon ka saath
lakhi baabul more

kaahe ko byaahi bides
kaahe ko byaahi bides re

kaahe ko byaahi bides

hum tore baabul chaube ki chidiya
hum tore baabul chaube ki chidiya
rain base ud jaaye re

bhaiyon ko dene mahle do-mahle
bhaiyon ko dene mahle do-mahle
humko diya pardes re

Hullo Atuldom

“Bombay” (1995) was written & directed by Mani Ratnam (born Gopala Ratnam Subramaniam) and produced by S. Sriram & Jhamu Sughand. It was the second installment of Ratnam’s trilogy of films that depict human relationships against a backdrop of political turmoil. ‘Roja’ (1992) and ‘Dil Se’ (1998) were the other two.

‘Roja’ had the Kashmir problem causing upheaval in the lives of a newly-wedded couple, when the husband (a cryptologist) is sent on a mission to help Army communications centre intercept military intelligence.
‘Dil Se..’ had Assam insurgency as the backdrop which causes problems in the life of a program executive of All India Radio when he is sent to cover festivities in Assam.

I am going to control myself from giving further descriptions of ‘Roja’ and ‘Dil Se..’. Another common thread between the three films were that the A R Rehman the ‘Mozart of Madras’ was the music director.
“Bombay” was initially thought up as a romantic drama involving a Hindu boy and Muslim girl. At the time that Mani Ratnam was writing the movie India was going through a phase and there were riots post the demolition of the Babri Masjid. It affected him to the extent that the incident and its aftermath found its way into the story. Thus an ordinary love story of a Muslim girl running away to join her love (a Hindu) at his work place in Bombay and the troubles that they faced in riot torn city became a commercially & critically successful movie.

The movie had a cast of Arvind Swamy, Manisha Koirala, Raja Krishnamoorthy, Nassar, Tinnu Anand, Akash Khurana, Prakash Raj etc. Master Hriday & Master Harsha played the twin sons born to the young couple who are named Kabir Narayan & Kamal Basheer. Sonali Bendre & Nagendra Prasad appeared for a song. I learnt, as I sat to write this, that Nagendra Prasad is the brother of Prabhu Deva & Raju Sundaram and son of choreographer/ director Mugur Sundar.

A small titbit about the movie or we can call it a thoughtful casting by Mani Ratnam- Kitty a.k.a. Raja Krishnamoorthy played Basheer the heroine’s father & Nassar played Narayan Pillai the hero’s father. Another titbit about Kitty is that he is born & brought up in Mumbai and I feel great pride in saying that he is an alumni of my school and is an MBA from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management studies. He is one of the actors who has a corporate background, made his debut in films through Mani Ratnam’s ‘Nayakan’ (1987), did a lot of films through the 80s & 90s; post 2000 he is back in the corporate world and acts in the odd film since 2017. He has also written Business and Life Management book. He is very vocal about civic issues.

Here I also feel like talking about Sonali Bendre (the dancer in today’s song) who is a Cancer- survivor. She was born on 1st January 1975 in Mumbai. She made her debut in films through the modelling world. Her debut film was “Aag” in 1994 opposite Govinda where she played a college student who commits suicide on being forced to marry someone whom she doesn’t like. She won a LUX new face award in that years’ Filmfare awards. She has acted opposite all top heroes of the 90s before quitting for family life in 2004. But she has been frequent on the small screen as host, judge etc in television shows. She has also appeared in Tamil & Telugu films. She was diagnosed with Metastatic Cancer in 2018 & underwent treatment in New York. Wishing her all the best and good health too.

The songs for the Tamil version were written by Vairamuthu and Vaali. The Hindi (dubbed) version had Mehboob as the lyricist. Mehboob (Alam Kotwal) had worked with A R Rehman in ‘Rangeela’ and was introduced to Mani Ratnam by ARR. That is how he came to write songs for the dubbed “Bombay”. Today’s song is in the voice of Remo Fernandes.

With this post we also wish A R Rehman on his birthday today. The multi award winner made India proud by winning international awards including two Academy Awards. Wishing the Padma Shri award winner A R Rehman a very Happy Birthday.

The movie was set in the picturesque North Bengal region- Darjeeling to be exact. Tea gardens formed the backdrop for most songs. It was a made simultaneously in Bengali as “Anusandhan” and was based on a Bengali novel. The Bengali version was more successful as compared to the Hindi one.
Abhi Bhattacharya played an official of the tea gardens and Rakhee was his blind daughter.

Amjad Khan (Kaliram) played the local goonda- element who is a law unto himself and has all the vices possible. Utpal Dutt (Sahuji), who is Amjad Khans’ father in the movie, is also the cause of the areas’ problems. He instigates the workers to strike against Abhi Bhattacharya etc. Additionally, he is involved in cross border smuggling.

Into this set up, Abhijeet (Amitabh Bachchan) walks in. Initially the locals have no clue about who he is. And he gets into a tangle with Kaliram on numerous occasions, today’s song is one such tangle, though a musical one.

It happens on the occasion of Durga Puja. Kaliram tries to impress the local female populace with his “dhol playing” and challenges Abhijeet to outdo him. What follows is a song in the voice of Kishore Kumar and Kaliram being mocked by Abhijeet. We have the blind Rakhi in the audience with Prema Narayan giving hee live updates.

This used to be a song that came regularly on Doordarshan.

We are having the song today to remember Panchamda (birthname:- Rahul Dev Burman) on his 29th remembrance anniversary.

For those who are his fans, it is common knowledge that he was son of legendary music director/ singer Sachin Dev Burman and Meera Burman. People are said to be born into riches Panchamda was born into music.

I have read at various places that SD Burman was proud to be referred to as Pancham’s father in the 70s. He was friends with the music director duo Laxmi-Pyare and has played the harmonica in some songs composed by the duo. The duo have also appeared on-screen in a song was composed by RDB. His closest friends in the industry were Rajesh Khanna, Kishore Kumar, Gulzar, Dev Anand & Gulshan Bawra. The trio of Rajesh Khanna- RDB – Kishore Kumar worked together in 32 films. Panchamda was nominated for around 8 films at the Filmfare and won 4 of them, the last one was posthumously for “1942- A Love Story”.

I can go on writing about his songs which are my personal favorites and may still miss a few lived songs. Today’s song is also one from my playlist.

Hullo Atuldom

Wishing the followers of the blog A Very Happy 2023. Hope the year brings joy & contentment to one & all.

Presenting a fun song to start the year. It is from the 14/11/1986 released “Insaaf Ki Awaaz”. It was directed by B. Gopal, who was essentially a director of Telugu films who had also directed two Hindi Films, the other being “Kanoon Apna Apna” (1989).

“Insaaf Ki Awaaz” (IKA) was produced by D. Rama Naidu, who had produced close to 130 films in 13 Indian languages before he passed away in 2015. His other Hindi films were ‘Prem Nagar’ (1974), ‘Dildaar’ (1977), ‘Anari’ (1993- the Hindi debut of his younger son Venkatesh), ‘Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain’ (1999), ‘Aaghaaz’ (2000), ‘Kuch Tum Kaho Kuch Hum Kahein’ (2002)- all of which were remakes of his successful Telugu films.

‘IKA’ starred Rekha as the avenging angel (a cop too), with Raj Babbar as her husband and Anil Kapoor as her brother. Richa Sharma, Nilu Phule, Sushma Seth, Anupam Kher, Shafi Inamdaar, Gulshan Grover, Roopesh Kumar, Tej Sapru, Jagdeep, Parikshit Sahni, etc formed the rest of the cast. Of course, ‘IAK’ was a made in South film, so it needed Kadar Khan, Asrani and Aruna Irani. Aruna Irani & Asrani formed part of the love triangle with Jagdeep being the 3rd angle. Kadar Khan was the head of the villains brigade with Anupam Kher, Gulshan Grover, Roopesh Kumar and Tej Sapru were the rest of the brigade.

Just by telling that Rekha played an avenging cop we should understand what the story of the movie was. I had not seen it at the time of the theatrical release but got to see it last week, when some channels were screening Anil Kapoor films. I have read somewhere that Anil Kapoor was mighty pleased when Rekha was roped in for the role which Smita Patil was going to play originally; he was a huge fan of Rekha.

‘IAK’ had music by Bappi Lahiri and songs written by Indeevar. Today’s song is a parody where we have Aruna Irani torn between her husband Jagdeep and paramour Asrani. They mouth a parody of songs that were famous in the 80s, all Bappi Lahiri creations. The songs have been rewritten to suit the situation and recorded in S Janaki- Kishore Kumar voices.

Wishing Govardhan Asrani- popular simply as Asrani- on turning 83. He has acted in close to 350 films, mostly as a comedian. He has also produced and directed a few films. He was first seen as Biswajeet’s friend in “Hare Kaanch Ki Choodiyan” (1967), and then followed ‘Satyakam’, ‘Mere Apne’, and and and numerous other movies where he had some memorable role. ‘Sholay’ gave him a new identity and he was made to enact a caricature of the ‘angrezon ke zamaane ka jailor’ in many movie that followed.

Happy Birthday to this versatile actor who was last seen in ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ (2021 which was a sequel of the 2005 hit).

Hullo Atuldom

I must thank our Atulite, Prakashchandraji, for idea about the movie to accompany this post.

Here are the songs that were posted on the blog on 29/12/2012:-

Kis ki sadaayen mujhko bulaayen Red Rose(1980) (Lyrics by Prakashchandraji) 9:10 pm
Shakti de maa Ashaanti(1982) (Lyrics by Avinashji) 9:40 pm

29/12/2012 was a Saturday. As can be seen from the above list Atulji posted the first song at 7.38 in the morning. 12 songs were posted, 6 of which were guest posts from which 4 were by Sudhirji (he was also very active on the blog then) and one each by Nahmji & Arunkumarji.

The last three posts on that date had lyrics contributed by Avinashji, Prakashchandraji and Khyatiji; all three of which were songs featuring Rajesh Khanna for his birthday. It was the first birthdate after Kaka’s death in July that year; we were remembering him on what would have been his 70th birthday.

The song that was contributed by Avinashji was from “Ashanti” an Eagle Film’s production. Hatt jaao deewaane aaye was a song from the 1960 release “Singapore” which was also an Eagle Films’ production that was directed by Shakti Samanta. (that must have been unplanned, I am sure).

“Ashanti” (1982), a movie produced by Parvesh Mehra & Rajiv Mehra of Eagle Film’s and directed by Umesh Mehra. It had music by R.D. Burman with Anand Bakshi as the lyricist. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, Shailendra Singh were the playback singers used. The following three songs from this movie are on the blog.

Shakti de maa 29 december 2012
Laungi mirchi main Kolhapur ki 19 November 2019
Na tujhse na mujhse 29 December 2021

“Ashanti” was one of the multi-starrers of that year. It had Rajesh Khanna heading a cast of Shabana Azmi, Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi, Mithun Chakravarthy, Kanwaljeet, Amrish Puri, Satyen Kappu, Jeevan Ramesh Deo, Nadira, Pinchoo kapoor, Narendranath, Monty Nath, and many more known faces that formed the supporting cast. It was an action film and was the story of an honest & dedicated police officer played by Rajesh Khanna who intercepts a bank robbery but is himself caught with the suitcase of stolen money, tried in the court and jailed. Further twists in the tale lead him to loosing a leg too. On his release from prison he seeks out the wrong doers and for this he has help from the three heroines and Shankar Dada played by Mithun. If my memory is correct, one of the heroines is also the lost daughter of Amrish Puri who is the cause of all the troubles of the police officer. The movie comes to a close after a lot of drama and high voltage action.

Today’s song has the voices of Asha Bhonsle and Amit Kumar. The song is picturised as a disco dance song on Zeenat Aman and Kanwaljeet. Rajesh Khanna is present among the audience. He is seen seated around a table with Shabana Azmi and he is seen looking furtively as befits a police officer on an important sectet mission.

Missing Kaka a.k.a Rajesh (first Superstar of Bollywood) Khanna on what would have been his 80th birthday.

Hullo Atuldom

“Saaheb” (1985) was a movie produced by Rupa K. Gandhi, Rajni A. Ganguly & R.M.Valia. It was directed by Anil Ganguly who had directed ‘Tapasya’, ‘Kora Kaagaz’, ‘Humkadam’ etc before “Saaheb”.

Readers may remember that all the movies that I have mentioned were family dramas with good music. Barring ‘Kora Kaagaz’ the other two had Rakhee as the central character who has to support her family. “Saaheb” also had Rakhee as a supportive bhabhi for Sunil Sharma whose nickname in the movie was Saaheb and that character was played by Anil Kapoor. Utpal Dutt played the patriarch of the Sharma family which consists of four sons- three of who are married, and two daughters- the youngest yet to be married. Saaheb addresses his father as “Royal Bengal Tiger”.

Saaheb, a football- goalkeeper, is always demotivated by his older brothers and bhabhis. They keep telling that when the whole team is running behind the ball, the goal keeper is cooling his heels at the goalpost. The oldest bhabhi (Rakhee) is the only one who understands him. When the father finds himself short of resources, at the time of his daughters’ wedding, Saaheb bails the family out specially when the older brothers try to bend the situation to their benefit. The family later comes to know that how Saaheb has managed to find the money and at what cost. The father also acknowledges that Saaheb is the real goalkeeper of the family.

Today is the 66th birthday of Anil Kapoor. He is touted as looking young and fit forever. He is a proud father of Sonam Kapoor, Rhea Kapoor and Harshvardhan Kapoor and also a grandfather too.

We are revisiting Saaheb to wish Anil Kapoor on his birthday. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar, written by Anjaan and composed by Bappi Lahiri. It shows Anil Kapoor walking along a ground where young boys are practising football. He doesn’t show any sadness on his countenance about never being able to play the game again. He was too good in the movie which was critically acclaimed. The movie was one of the first to show what organ donation was all about and the paperwork and medical angles associated with it.


Song-Kya khabar kya pata (Saaheb)(1985) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

kya khabar kya pata
kya khushi hai
gham hai kya
kya khabar kya pata
kya khushi hai
gham hai kya
leke aansoo jo hansi de
gham ke badle jo khushi de
raaz yeh jaana usi ne
zindagi kya hai zindagi
kya khabar kya pata
kya khushi hai gham hai kya

kal ki baaten bhool jaa
guzri raaten bhool ja
khwaab jo sach ho sake na
uski yaaden bhool ja aa
kal ki baaten bhool ja
guzri raaten bhool ja
khwaab jo sach ho sake na
uski yaaden bhool ja aa
jo na haare bebasi se
na kare shiqwa kisi se
raaz yeh jaana usi ne
zindagi kya hai zindagi
kya khabar kya pata
kya khushi hai
gham hai kya
leke aansoo jo hansi de
gham ke badle jo khushi de
raaz yeh jaana usi ne
zindagi kya hai zindagi ee
kya khabar kya pata
kya khushi hai gham hai kya

“Awaargi” (1990) was directed by Mahesh Bhatt, story-screenplay-dialogues were written by Suraj Sanim, and produced by P. Raghunath (who happened to be Hema Malini’s uncle). The movie opens with a message ‘Thanking Hema Malini’. Anu Malik was the music composer with Anand Bakshi writing most of its songs. Playback singers used were Asha Bhonsle, Mohd. Aziz, Lata Mangeshkar, Anuradha Paudwal; the Ghazal Maestro Ghulam Ali sang the melodious “Chamkate Chaand Ko Toota Hua Taara Banaa Dalaa” which was was written by Asad Bhopali. (Recently I saw this, sung by a youngster, on satellite TV, and I was hooked on to it and the songs of the movie itself).

Meenakshi Sheshadri-Anil Kapoor-Govinda formed the main lead and Anupam Kher headed the supporting cast of Satish Kaushik, Paresh Rawal, Avtar Gill, Mahesh Anand, Deepak Qazir, Ghanshyam etc. This was a movie that was long in the making and finally released 4 years after it was announced. This was one of the two movies that had Anil Kapoor & Govinda in the lead; the other being “Deewaana Mastaana”; both were love triangles but completely different from each other.
“Awaargi” was the story of Azaad (Anil Kapoor) rescuing a girl – Meena (Meenakshi)- from a brothel and how he helps her attain her dream of becoming a singer. For this he introduces her to a hotel owner (Deepak Qazir). Here she is spotted by a stage singer -Dhiren (Govinda)- who offers her a place in his troop and thus begins her journey to reach her dreams. Then, of course, there is the usual of Azaad falling in love with her and not being able to express it when he feels that Meena is in love with Dhiren. In between the confusion among the lovers there is also the ‘tadka’ of some gang lords – Paresh Rawal & Anupam Kher- wanting Meena back in the brothel.

I have seen this movie a decade back and don’t recall how it ends; but I am sure one of the guys would have given up his love for the lady; or (just maybe) the lady would have decided who she wanted in her life. This was a movie where Govinda and Anil Kapoor played serious characters with Anil Kapoor’s Azaad being the ‘Tapori’ that he was adept at playing back then.

Today we are having the song with which Meena makes her stage debut with Dhirens’ help. It is in the voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Aziz. It shows the two dancers in tandem to movements set by Saroj Khan.

With this post we are wishing the actor/dancer/singer/comedian Govinda who also tried his hand at being a Parliamentarian for a term as an elected member of the Lower House (Lok Sabha). He has taken a step closer to being 60.

Hullo Atuldom

“Pyaar Hi Pyaar” – release date 17th October 1969- was directed by Bhappie Sonie and produced by Rajaram & Satish Wagle. It had music by Shankar-Jaikishan & Hasrat Jaipuri wrote most of the songs. Rajinder Krishan is credited with one song. The movie had a cast of Vyjayanthimala, Dharmendra, Manmohan, Mehmood, Helen, Dhumal, Madan Puri, D.K. Sapru, Sulochana -Latkar & Chatterjee, Raj Mehra AND PRAN. Plus there were some character artists who are familiar faces to all Hindi movie fans- like the rotund Moolchand, Robert (the Goan dancer who was a prominent face in dance numbers till 1989), even Shatrughan Sinha and Salim Khan (who later formed a duo with Javed Akhtar) were there in small roles.

It was a normal story where a police inspector on duty of finding a beautiful young woman’s father promptly falls in love with her. Then there are the regular complications that any Indian film with love story as theme would have. Vijay (Dharmendra) and Kavita (Vyjayanthimala) face complications in the form of Shyam Kumar (Manmohan) and Satish Raj (Pran, calling himself Ashok occasionally). So that is the background for the film
The film had six songs of which the blog has these four.

Song Date of post Remarks
Ham aa gaye phir dar kaahe ka 3 January 2009
Dekha hai teri aankhon mein pyaar hi pyaar 3 january 2009 (two songs from the same film! one after the other!)
Main kahin kavi na ban jaaun 5 January 2009
Tu mera main teri duniya jaley to jaley 12 September 2020 (post by Nahmji)

As we can see this film has debuted on the blog and is one of those films that are yet to be Yyippeeeed.

We are having the next song today on the occasion of Dharmendra’s birthday. He is turning 87 today. I know that there are enough fans of this smart (who was young at the time of this movie) old man among the followers of this blog. He still looks charming as was seen when he appeared on a satellite channel a few weeks back. We all know that he has been entertaining us since 1960. His last release was in 2020 in a Punjabi film “Jora -second chapter” and he was also seen in short film “Dream Catcher” in 2021. His sons and daughters (from his marriage to Hema Malini) are actors and his grandson Karan Deol (Sunny Deol’s son) has taken his first step into the filmworld a few years back.

Just to get an idea of the acting range of Dharam Paaji (he is addressed like this fondly) – “Yakeen”, “Satyakam”, “Pyaar Hi Pyaar”, “Khamoshi”, “Aaya Sawan Jhoom Ke” and “Aadmi Aur Insaan” were his releases of 1969.

The song is regular ched-chaad song. It has the hero complaining to the heroine and her friends and hindering them in their efforts to help the drowning Manmohan. It is the song that was written by Rajinder Krishan and sung with full gusto by Mohd Rafi .


Song-Abhi salaamat abhi hai zinda aap ka khidmatgaar (Pyaar Hi Pyaar)(1969) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

pyaar pyaar
pyaar pyaar
abhi salaamat
abhi hai zinda
aap ka khidmatgaar
aap ki khidmat mein haazir hai
le ke pyaar hi pyaar
le ke pyaar hi pyaar
abhi salaamat
abhi hai zinda
aap ka khidmatgaar
aap ki khidmat mein haazir hai
le ke pyaar hi pyaar
le ke pyaar hi pyaar
de do pyaar
le lo pyaar
de do pyaar
le lo pyaar
pyaar pyaar
pyaar pyaar

kya socha thha
kya hua hai
ik dushman ka bhala hua hai
kya socha thha
kya hua hai
ik dushman ka bhala hua hai
ye zaalim aur aap ka pehlu
dil apna to jala hua hai
dil apna to jala hua hai
abhi salaamat
abhi hai zinda
aap ka khidmatgaar
aap ki khidmat mein haazir hai
le ke pyaar hi pyaar
le ke pyaar hi pyaar
de do pyaar
o le lo pyaar
de do pyaar
le lo pyaar
pyaar pyaar pyaar pyaar

gair ko yoon na pass bithaao
deewaane par raham to khaao
gair ko yoon na pass bithaao
daawaane par raham to khaao
naazuk naazuk in haathon se
dushman ko mat hosh mein laao
dushman ko mat hosh mein laao
abhi salaamat
abhi hai zinda
aap ka khidmatgaar
aap ki khidmat mein haazir hai
le ke pyaar hi pyaar
le ke pyaar hi pyaar
de do pyaar
le lo pyaar
de do pyaar
le lo pyaar
pyaar pyaar pyaar pyaar
pyaar pyaar pyaar pyaar
pyaar pyaar pyaar pyaar
