Hullo Atuldom

There are so many possible songs to go with today’s post. Songs that will do justice to the personality and versatile talent of the concerned celebrity.
He was an actor born with acting in his genes. He was not a star-kid but a star-heir, facing the camera for the first time when he was barely 2 or 3 years old. He was seen next as an adolescent playing his father’s Bachpan. All that I have written are well known facts about this actor, who in later years turned a producer-director much like his father. Along with his brothers he tried to keep the studio and banner, set up by his showman father, aloft till 2017 when the iconic property in Mumbai’s Chembur area caught fire and collapsed during the shoot of a television reality show. The brothers then decided to pull down the shutters on a piece of history of Indian cinema.

Regular movie-buffs will know that I am speaking of Raj Kapoor’s sons- Randhir, Rishi and Rajiv and the RK Films and RK Studios. The last movie that came from this banner was “Aa Ab Laut Chalen” (1999) which was directed by Rishi Kapoor. Before that “Prem Granth” (1996) which was directed by Rajiv Kapoor and “Henna” (1991) directed by Randhir Kapoor were the offerings from RK Films both of which had Rishi Kapoor playing the central character.

As I mentioned above Rishi Kapoor had acting in his genes with all the males (before him) from his family, being in the entertainment industry -Prithviraj Kapoor (grandfather), Raj Kapoor (father) Shammi Kapoor & Shashi Kapoor (uncles). Chintu (as Rishi Kapoor used to be addressed fondly) had shared screen space with his uncles and has been directed by his father in a few movies. I doubt if has appeared in any movie with his niece- Karisma and Kareena; but he has acted with his son Ranbir which was incidentally his wife Neetu’s comeback to movies, after she quit the limelight for family life.

The last movie that he faced the camera for, post his return from USA after undergoing treatment for the dreaded C, released on an OTT channel on 31st March 2022. I happened to see this for the love of Chintu and I must say ‘I was not disappointed’.

Chintu was one actor who had always emoted well and things were not any different in “Sharmaji Namkeen”. The unique thing about the film was the way they had two actors play a single character. Maybe a first in Indian movies. Actually, there was about four days shoot left, of the movie, at the time of Chintu’s passing. Paresh Rawal stepped in and the movie was completed. The makers didn’t re-shoot the parts which Chintu had completed. Instead, the transition in the scenes with the two actors was kept seamless and they didn’t try to get a single person to dub for the two actors (both actors spoke in their own voice). I would love to see the movie all over again just to enjoy the smooth handling of the movie. It had all the trademark stuff that fans of Chintu loved him for including the sweaters and mufflers that he was famous for.

Much as I would like to share a song from “Sharmaji Namkeen” in this post I am settling for one of his popular numbers from the ’70s. (Link to Sharmaji songs is not yet available on Youtube).

Today’s song may well be one of those categorized as “How come this song was not posted earlier?”. It features Chintu with Neetu Singh and is written by Gulshan Bawra. Kalyanji Anandji are the music directors of this song that is sung by Shailendra Singh and Asha Bhonsle.

This movie, “Rafoo Chakkar” (1975), was directed by Narinder Bedi and produced by House of Nadiadwalas. It had Faryal, Asrani, Paintal, Rajindernath, Sulochana, Mumtaz Begum, Madan Puri, Anwar Hussain, Shetty, Kamran, etc in addition to the lead pair of Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor. It had six songs of which the blog has the following four.

Song Date of posting
Chhu chhuk chhak chhak Bombay se Baroda tak 4 September 2012
Dil lena buri bala hai 22 August 2013
Tumko mere dil ne pukaara hai 21 January 2014

Let us enjoy the locales of Kashmir and remember how simple life was back in the 70s. The girl needed to educate the guy ‘what love was all about’ 🙂


Song-Kisi pe dil agar aa jaaye to kya hota hai (Rafoo Chakkar)(1975) Singers-Shailendra Singh, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulshan Baawra, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Hello Atuldom

“Awaam” (1987) was produced by B.R. Chopra and Ravi Chopra. It was directed by B.R. Chopra and had dialogues by Dr. Rahi Masoom Reza.
It had Ashok Kumar, Shafi Inamdar, Iftikhar, Om Shivpuri and Shreeram Lagoo playing friends, and past freedom-fighters who are living on benefits that freedom-fighters used to get. Additionally, Shafi Inamdar, Om Shivpuri and Shreeram Lagoo are politicians in post-independence India and Shafi Inamdar’s character is shown to be hand-in-glove with anti-national (Gaddaar) elements and Om Shivpuri being happy reaping benefits of the Gaddaars.

Rajesh Khanna played the son of the straight-forward Iftikhar and is shown to worship Ashok Kumar. Then there are Deepak Parashar and Raj Babbar who are Rajesh Khanna’s friends. Poonam Dhillon & Smita Patil are the female characters who are slightly more than glamour dolls. There is Nana Patekar who plays an Army officer who has engaged Rajesh Khanna (an infantry man) to look into the activities of the corrupt people. Oh, I forgot to mention Maneesha kohli (character actor Dev Kumar’s daughter) played a negative character with some good dance numbers featuring her. Plus Vijay Arora, Chandrashekhar, Saeed Jaffery, Satish Shah, Rita Rani Kaul, Ashalata and Sushma Seth form the supporting cast. (As we can see it was a multi, multi-starrer).

So that is the story of the movie in short. But the movie itself was 2 & 1/2 hours long with a few people being eliminated every time the cover of the Gaddaars is blown. I know also this because my favourite D2H channel is having a festival of BR Chopra films this week- to remember the producer-director on his birth anniversary which is on 22nd April; he would have been 108. They have aired Ittefaq, Agni Pariksha, Karm, Awam and Afsana is scheduled for tomorrow. Some really ‘Hatke’ movies have been selected, and not the oft-repeated Naya Daur, Baghban, The Burning Train etc. And since it is a BR Chopra film festival I am sure that the channel must have been spoilt with a large library to choose from.

I discovered a few interesting tit-bits as I sat to write this post.

1) this was B R Chopra’s final film as director. Then he made Mahabharat the television series.
2) for about 36 years Ashok Kumar and B R Chopra worked together starting with Chopra’s first film Afsana in 1951.
3) Iftikhar was a permanent in Chopra’s films for 30 years and this was the last time they worked together.
4) Rajesh Khanna acted in a BR Chopra film after 10 years in ‘Awam’; Karm was in 1977.
5) from ‘Gumrah’ to ‘Awam’ Ravi gave music for BR Chopra films for 25 years. This was their last together.
6) This was Smita Patil’s last movie. She had completed shooting her scenes and dubbing was left. Rekha dubbed for Smita’s character.

Today’s song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor & Asha Bhonsle and Rajesh Khanna & Poonam lip-sync. Hasan Kamal was the lyricist.

With this post we can also wish the beautiful Poonam on turning 60 a few days back. April 18th was her birthday. It is hard to imagine that she is 60. All the best to her for great times ahead.

Hullo Atuldom

The song in this post is the perfect candidate for the “how come this song was not posted earlier” category. It being the most popular song of the film. There have been three songs posted on the blog, out of eight (I think) that this movie has, and this song is mentioned in at least two of these posts.

Avinash ji, in his post of the song “Jeene Ko To Jeete Hain Sabhi“, wondered how today’s song missed a place in that year’s Top 30 of the famous Binaca Geetmala.

Nahm ji has given the complete story of this movie in her post of the song “Mil Gayeen Aaj Do Lehren“. She has also pointed towards the connection between the song in that post with today’s song.

The movie had made it’s debut on the blog with the song “Maine Tujhe Kabhi Kuchh Kaha Tha“.

I am talking of ‘Ye Vaada Raha’ (1982) which was directed by Kapil Kapoor for Rose Movies, Bombay. It was produced by Ramesh Behl. It had Rishi Kapoor, Tina Munim, Poonam Dhillon, Sarika, Rakhi, Rakesh Bedi, Iftekhar, Agha, Sundar, Gulshan Bawra, Hari Shivdasani, and others. Shammi Kapoor made a special appearance in this movie. The film has six (but I think I have counted eight songs because one is a multi-version song) songs penned by Gulshan Bawra and composed to music by Rahul Dev Burman.

Revisiting ‘Ye Vaadaa Rahaa’ today on the occasion of Gulshan Bawra’s birth anniversary. He would have been 85 today. He was associated with many popular songs in his career – songs which were tuned by Kalyanji Anandji, Laxmikant Pyarelal, RD Burman and other music composers of the 70s, 80s and 90s. The last movie for which he penned songs was the Akshay Kumar- Twinkle Khanna starrer ‘Zulmi’ which released in 1999. It had music by Dilip Sen-Sameer Sen; he had also appeared on the screen in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle with Rishi performing a waltz with an imaginary partner and then Poonam joins him. The video that I found on YouTube has all the versions stitched together. So, the second part of the song begins 3 minutes into the video where Tina Munim is reminiscing her days with Rishi Kapoor. I am unable to find videos where the three versions are separate.


Song-Tu, Tu Hai Wahi Dil Ne Jise Apna Kaha (Ye vaada Raha)(1982) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Gulshan Baawra, MD-RD Burman

ho mil jaayen is tarah do lehre jis tarah
phir ho naa juda
haan yeh vaada raha
la la la la la la

“Naukar” (1979) was produced by Ismail Memon & Govind Ahuja, directed by Ismail Memon, music was composed by R D Burman and the songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Mohd. Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar were the playback singers used for the five songs, three of which are on the blog.

Ankhiyon mein chhote chhote sapne sajaay ke was a song which came twice in the movie- once when Sanjeeev Kumar is singing to put his daughter to sleep and once when Jaya Bhaduri sings; i.e. there is a Lata Mangeshkar version and a Kishore Kumar version.
Pallo latke re mhaaro pallo latke is the other song.

On a recent trip to Rajasthan I heard this later song being sung by the local folk singers and R D Burman may have been inspired by them is the thought I had.

This was a long-in-the-making movie as Jaya Bhaduri had retired from acting post marriage and kids. Also the makers were said to have run into financial trouble. It was in the making since 1973 and that was the initial cause of the delay. It was finally completed five years later and turned out to be a hit and also earned Jaya Bhaduri a best actress award – must have made those distributors who thought that she was a cold proposition eat their words.Emoji

The movie was the story of a wealthy widower Amar (Sanjeev Kumar) who swaps his identity with his servant Dayal (Mehmood) when he sets out to look for a bride who will be a good mother to his daughter too. He lands up in the house of Shanti Swarup (Manmohan Krishna) and Durga Devi (Lalita Pawar) who have daughters of marriageable age -Madhu Malini and Meena T.

But the girls have other plans- one falls in love with Dayal and the other is in love with Vijay (Shailendra Singh) who happens to be Dayal’s brother.

There is one more entity in the Shanti Swarup household- Geeta (Jaya Bhaduri) who happens to be Durga Devi’s friend’s daughter who is treated as a non-entity by Durga Devi and her daughters.

Amar -‘the Naukar’ and his daughter take a liking to Geeta who also has a soft-corner for the motherless child.

So that then is the synopsis of this movie which we are revisiting today after 9 years (last post for this movie was on 04-04-2013) on the occasion of the 74th birthday of Jaya Bhaduri who married Amitabh Bachchan to become Jaya Bachchan, mother of Abhishek & Shweta Bachchan, mother-in-law to Aishwarya Rai & Nikhil Nanda and grand mother of Navya Naveli, Agastya & Aradhya.

She was born in Jabalpur to Tarun Kumar & Indira Bhaduri and made her acting debut in a Bengali film directed by Satyajit Ray “Mahanagar” (1963) at the age of 15. Her Hindi film debut came in 1971 “Guddi” (this is known worldwide).

Let us wish this highly talented actress, who acted in just 32 films upto 1975 – Sholay, Mili and Chupke Chupke were her 1975 releases. She returned to films with ‘Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Ma’ in 1998. Of course, she lent her voice to the characters played by Tina Munim and Poonam Dhillon in “Yeh Vaada Raha” and played a small role in Mehmood’s “Ek Baap Aur Chhe Bete”. She came out of retirement for ‘Silsila’ in 1981.

Wishing Jaya Bhaduri health happiness and joy on her birthday.

Hullo Atuldom

I have been making mental notes for this post for sometime now. Selecting and rejecting songs as I came across more songs that fell right into the criteria that I had set for song selection.

The blog already has a song/ post authored by Avinashji to celebrate the 80th birthday of an actor who has been entertaining lovers of Hindi films since the 60s. He also has remembered the gorgeous Parveen Babi in that post. The song that he presented was from a movie which I had not seen at the time of its release in the 80s for the same reason that Avinashji couldn’t see it- not being an ‘Adult’, I have not seen “Meri Awaaz Suno” in later years as well. The song in that post was also on my list.
But not to worry as there are ‘N’ number of songs featuring this ‘new’ Octogenarian.

Let us enjoy a song which has Kishore Kumar giving playback to a ‘then’ 36 year old Jeetendra and Asha Bhonsle singing for a ‘then’ 16 or 17 year old Jaya Prada for whom this was her second Hindi movie of that year. The fun/ romantic song is written by Anand Bakshi and tuned by Laxmi-Pyare. The song was not so popular back then but don’t remember why I used to like it. In fact, I won’t surprised if the movie itself featured in the ‘never heard of this movie’ list of moviegoers.

The song is from T. Rama Rao directed, S. Venkatratnam produced 1979 release “Lok Parlok”. The movie had Jaya Prada, Jeetendra, Amjad Khan (playing a cute character), Madan Puri, Pandari Bai, Pradeep Kumar (Devraj Indra), Deven Verma (Chitragupt), Premnath (Yamraj), and Padma Khanna, Manju Bhargavi, Vijayalalitha (as Menaka, Urvashi, Rambha) and a few others playing interesting characters. The movie was almost entirely a dream sequence. It had Jeetendra (Amar) and Jaya Prada (Savitri) playing lovers and Madan Puri (Kalicharan) the thorn in their story. Kalicharan hires a killer to bump off Amar for two reasons-

(1) to keep him away from Savitri
(2) as Amar incites the locals against Kalicharan.

Only problem is that the person assigned to bump Amar turns out to be his friend and then the movie takes-off with its hilarious, out-of-this world story. I recommend the readers to see the movie at least once for some light entertainment.

Incidentally, Jaya Prada turned 60 on the 3rd of this month. “Lok Parlok” was her second Hindi movie of 1979 (release date 23rd November 1979) after “Sargam” which released in January. She was already a huge star in Telugu and Tamil movies before she tried her luck in Bollywood. She had only one problem- not being able to speak Hindi, and it is said that Naaz used to dub for her. Eventually she learnt the language and starred in many successful Bollywood films of the 80s and early 90s before turning a politician in 1995.

A thought crossed my mind as I was writing this- Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan and Jeetendra were all born in 1942. Their careers ran parallel but there was never a movie which had all the three together. I am sure it would have been a visual treat; having seen movies where Rajesh Khanna & Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna & Amitabh Bachchan and Jeetendra & Amitabh Bachchan were together. Don’t know if any filmmaker had ever thought of this combination as there were many 3-hero-movies in that period.

Wishing Jaya Prada (born Lalita Rani) and Jeetendra a very Happy Milestone birthday. May they have all health and happiness.

Hullo Atuldom

In the (almost) 14 years of its existence, there have been many changes in the lives of those associated with atulsongaday.me.

Our Atulji has shifted base a few times in these years. If I am not wrong his daughter has qualified to be a doctor as also Nahmji’s son and Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji’s (Guruji) grandson/s have also become doctors. Peevesie who entered the world of ASAD and was called the youngest follower turning to contributor and mouthpiece (for the blog) among her friends and family has since become a working adult and even has a life-partner as also Nahmji’s daughter. Avinashji has also shifted base a few times and also had an overseas stint in the years in between. Maheshji (Mukesh Fan is his second name) has returned to Motherland and is no longer an NRA (non-resident atulite). I know that similar changes, in life & on the work front, have happened in the lives of other Atulites too. I have myself graduated from being a full-time mother to a leisurely-paced mother.

There is a lesser-known Atulite who has contributed only one post as a guest-poster (she took over the mantle of youngest contributor). Her forte’ is that she is musically inclined as her father (a hyper-active atulite). I know that she also pens verses which are very meaningful. She had given her father this post on his birthday six years back. She was welcomed wholeheartedly by atulites who wanted more from her but her preoccupation with education and other activities may not have given her time to contribute more to the blog. But the song with that post was so meaningful, it would have been appropriate for today. She has grownup into a young adult and is stepping into a new phase of her life. Here is wishing her all the best for the future.

There is a happy event happening in the life of our Guruji too in the next few days. Wishing him lots of joy and all the best to his grandson.

“Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai” is a title that was first used in Hindi films in 1961 which was written and directed by Nasir Husain and had his time-tested formula of hero impersonating, heroine falling in love with the impersonator, misunderstandings creeping in due to the villain and heroine’s father, and finally the hero and heroine getting married with the blessings of all elders. The movie was littered with great songs.

The title was repeated again in 1998. This time the director was Deepak Sareen who had started his career as assistant to Yash Chopra in ‘Deewar’. He had been assistant in ‘Kabhi Kabhi’, ‘Doosra Aadmi’, ‘Silsila’, ‘Mashaal’ and ‘Faasle’ before independently directing ‘Ranbhoomi’, ‘Aaina’, ‘Gaddar’, ‘Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai’, and ‘Albela’. This romantic film had a skirt-chaser for a hero who is disliked by the girl initially. He woos her by promising to give up his errant ways, convinces both families that they are ready to marry. But the twist in the tale comes in the form of the hero’s son from a previous girlfriend who insists that he will tell-all to the fiancee if the hero doesn’t tell himself. The story comes to a happy ending with the girl and the child forgiving the hero and ‘THE END’

“Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai” (1998) starred Twinkle Khanna, Farida Jalal, Himani Shivpuri, Namrata Shirodkar (guest appearance), Salman Khan, Anupam Kher, Johnny Lever, Saeed Jaffery, and Master Aditya Narayan. The movie had songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Jatin-Lalit. Today we are having the movie debuting with a song sung by Alka Yagnik and Sonu Nigam. It has the whole cast except Aditya Narayan enjoying the engagement of Salman and Twinkle.

Hullo Atuldom

A very very Happy Holi to all the followers of this wonderful blog. May there be lots of ‘rang and umang’ all around.

I have been following this blog for 13 years i.e. from March 2009. The head-over-heels involvement began almost instantly. I see that 66 songs, connected with this colourful festival, have been posted in all these years. I find a few songs showcasing the festival have been posted on ‘non-holi’ days too. So that must indicate that we will not have sufficient songs in coming years to post on festival days. But that is not so.

The film industry has been in existence since 1912/1913, and its romance with the festival of colours may have started almost immediately. (I did my own searching, on our blog, and found a post by Sudhirji where he has mentioned that “the songs of Holi go as far back as 1931.”)

A search on Google for the first song of Holi in Indian films came up with the song from Mehboob Khan’s “Aurat”. That song is on the blog with a post by Sudhirji which I have spoken of in the previous para. In that post he has written, and I quote

“As is inseparable, the festival of Holi and its songs from our lives, so it is also inseparable from the Hindi film screen. It is no wonder that the most celebrated of all the festivals on the Hindi screen is this festival of colors.” He also writes “In fact, many times, the situation of Holi is simply engineered into the storyline. Just so that one more song and dance sequence can be inserted into the screenplay.”

That being the love between the festival of colours and films, we will never run out of songs to post. I don’t remember the last time I wrote out a Holi-Song for the blog, but I recalled a few possible songs for the festival this year. And as is my habit I have tried to combine two occasions with this one post.

18th March would have been the 84th birthday of the smart, cute, gentleman actor Shashi Kapoor -of the charming smile. The DTH channel, that I currently follow, keeps playing interviews of yesteryear heroines like Moushumi Chatterjee, Sharmila Tagore, Zarina Wahab etc. All of them have one thing to say about this actor – “He was very gracious and courteous. Very caring and went out of his way to make the ladies comfortable”. He never had any qualms about acting the second lead and we know of his pairing with Amitabh Bachchan, but he was equally at ease sharing screen space with Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar, Dharmendra etc. He may not have been the best of dancers, so what, he moved with a sense of rhythm and never seemed to miss a beat.

Today’s song is from the 1981 release “Ek Aur Ek Gyarah” that was directed by Ashok Roy. It had Neetu Singh, Zarina Wahab, Shashi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Prem Chopra, Om Prakash, P. Jairaj, Bharat Bhushan, Asrani, Master Bhagwan, etc in the cast. Laxmi-Pyare and Majrooh Sultanpuri were responsible for the music and produced by Ram Prasad Sharma. This holi-song is sung by Hemlata, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. It has all the standard, filmy, elements needed viz. dry and wet colours, bhang, and eve-teasing too towards the end of the song. But we can also see the lady replying sternly to the guy that “joote maaroongi”. If we see the dance closely, at one point we have Shashi Kapoor desperately trying to match Neetu Singh step-for-step and breaking into some choreography of his own. A thing that always catches my attention in holi-songs is however wet the actors get their dresses are dry in the very next instant.

I must say that I have actively participated in the merry-making of Holi and I have never seen anyone go crazy yelling ‘holi hai’. I have never seen people breaking into song and dance about it. Possible that these things happen in Brij bhoomi, and parts of North India. I would like to tour that region during holi, if possible. Also I would like to see the Lath-Maar Holi of Nandgaon and Barsana.

Happy Holi to one and all once again.

Remembering Shashi Kapoor …………

Hullo Atuldom

The screen turns to a dark, cloudy sky. There is thunder and lightning. A shimmering disk appears against this backdrop, accompanied by music that has certain magical quality about it. As the background score gently works its way to a crescendo, finishing with a flourish of cymbals, a Greek column-like pedestal, bearing the ‘NH Films’ insignia appears against a smoke-filled screen. Almost instantly a booming voice recites a couplet, with a soft but distinct drum roll accompanying the oration. The couplet goes:

Kya ishq ne samjha hai, kya husn ne jaana hai
Hum khaaq-nasheenon ki thokar mein zamaana hai

The voiceover ends with an emphatic drumbeat. The credits follow led by the opening credit, NASIR HUSAIN FILMS Presents…..

This is from the introductory page of the book “Music Masti Modernity- The cinema of NASIR HUSAIN” by Akshay Manwani – a gift that my daughter gave me last year for Mother’s Day. From the book I learnt that Maulana Abul Kalam Azad was Nasir Husain’s mother’s maternal uncle. He (Nasir Husain) was the fourth of five children with Tahir Husain being his younger brother. Actors Tariq (of kya hua tera waada) and Aamir Khan are his nephews where Tariq is his older brother – Anees’s son and Aamir is Tahir Husain’s son. His grandson Imran Khan (daughter Nuzhat’s son) is an actor. A very interesting trivia that I learnt from the book is that Nasir Sa’ab’s wife – Ayesha Khan- was born Margaret Francina Lewis, and she was an assistant choreographer in films.Subodh Mukherjee used his assistant Nasir and the choreographer’s assistant whenever he setup shots and almost played cupid in their life.

We (the regular followers of this blog) know that Nasir Husain began his life in the film industry as a writer at Filmistan when the screenwriter Aghajani Kashmeri fell ill and Nasir Sa’ab was asked to complete the unfinished dialogues for “Chandni Raat” (1949); the book says he was not credited for this. We also know that he went on to produce and direct films and gave audiences breezy musical romantic entertainers right till the 1980s when he directed “Zabardast” (1985) which was produced by Mushir-Riaz which had Rati Agnihotri- Jaya Prada- Tanuja- Geeta Kak- Sunny Deol- Rajiv kapoor- Sanjeev Kumar- Amrish Puri and others in the cast.

1988 saw Nasir Sa’ab’s son Mansoor Khan turn director with “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak” which was produced by Nasir Husain Films, and the story-screenplay and dialogues were by Nasir Husain. The next two films directed by Mansoor Khan- “Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar” {JJWS (1992)} and “Akele Hum Akele Tum” (1995) also had dialogues by Nasir Husain. That means career began and ended Nasir Sa’ab with being a writer. I think he hung up his boots post this.

“Yaadon Ki Baraat” (1973) made by Nasir Husain Films had a long song which changes beat/ tempo etc. with ‘Dil mil gaye toh um khil gaye’- which is almost like a second song with a life of its own. The song closes with Tariq, Zeenat Aman, Vijay Arora and the whole audience breaking into ‘Dum Maro Dum’ and we get the third song. Nasir Husain repeated this kind of song picturisation in ‘Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahin’ and ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai’. Mansoor Khan followed his father’s formula of two-three songs in one with ‘Jawaan ho yaaro yeh tumko hua kya’; ‘deewane hum pyar ke, parwaane hum pyar ke’ and ‘Naam hai mera Fonseca” in “JJWS”. Today we shall see one of the three.

We can see Aamir Khan, Ayesha Julka, Pooja Bedi, Deepak Tijori, Mamik Singh, Kiran Jhaveri, Deven Bhojani etc in this stage song which is sung by Udit Narayan and Vijeyta Pandit. It is written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Jatin-Lalit.

Incidentally 13th March was Nasir Husain’s death anniversary and 14th March is Aamir Khan’s birthday. So here is a song connecting the Uncle and Nephew.

na honge sada yahi din raat
kabhi toh banegi apni baat

Hullo Atuldom

“Five Rifles” (1974) was produced and directed by I.S. Johar. I think it was also written by I.S.Johar. Anyone who used to see the movies in the 70s will recall that the male actors – won’t call them protagonist or heroes- were look-alikes of Shashi Kapoor and Rajesh Khanna; credited in the movie’s titles as Shahi Kapoor and Rakesh Khanna. The others in the cast were Ambika Johar (in a double role), Veena, D.K. Sapru, Murad, Kamal Kapoor (in one of his many videshi, police commissioner acts), Anil Johar, Satyadeep etc. and I.S. Johar, of course. The songs of the movie were written by Rajinder Krishan and Indeevar. The movie had five songs and the blog has the following two of them:-

Song Date of post
Jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi 30 june 2009
Tera husn allah allah tera roop raam raam 6 June 2018

Avinashji has written a lot of details, about the film, in this post

I don’t recall if I had seen this movie at the time of its release (maybe I had) but saw the movie recently and felt that it spoke about too many things. I.S. Johar had ‘Nashabandi’ (prohibition on sale of liquor), ‘Nasbandi’ (family planning movement of the 70s), freedom-struggle, corrupt ‘Senapati’ of some unnamed kingdom who helps the foreign ruler dethrone the Maharaja etc. all in the story of this movie. Additionally, there was an extended climax which went from the plains to the snow-capped hills in North India with snowmobiles etc. Plus all the gorillas/apes that kept popping here-there-everywhere through the movie. And weird cars which split from the middle, suddenly become flying cars, and amphibians. Just too many things in one movie for the audience to digest; in addition to the two look-alikes and a non-acting heroine. God, I sat through it to see what the song-and-dance was all about. Oh I forgot, a song from “Johar Mehmood in Goa” (1965) was used in the scene where the Apes helping the freedom-fighters are being escorted to Jail.

Today we are having a song where we see Inder Sen Johar (read somewhere that he was Inderjeet Singh Johar, whichever is correct) disguised as a dancer out to hoodwink the ‘Daaroga’ and breaking into a mujra singing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. There is another girl dancing in a black dress outwitting the hawaldars who have accompanied the Daaroga.

I.S. Johar, born on 16th february 1920, was an M.A. in Economics & Politics and before completing LLB. He was born in modern day Pakistan, got stuck in Patiala at the time of partition and could never return. He made his debut in Bollywood in 1949 and also appeared in a few international projects. He was seen in comic roles with tongue-in-cheek dialogues and did serious roles too with subtle ironic or frankly sarcastic jibes at Indian customs, mores, superstitions and institutions. It is 38 years since his passing and 10th March is his anniversary.

Hullo Atuldom

March 7th sees Anupam Kher, the versatile actor, turn a year older. He has played characters beyond his calendar age in numerous films. He has played the archetypal villain with as much finesse as serious supporting roles. He has also tried playing characters which are comic but of course some of these have been over-the-top and mostly making faces, using odd hair-get-ups etc. would be used to create comic effect. But I think we can excuse this fine actor of these excesses as he used to balance them by doing roles as in “Daddy” (1989), Utsav (1984), Karma (1986), Rao Saheb (1985), Kaash (1987), Zevar etc.

He played Shahrukh Khan’s son-friendly father in a few movies, as also father to Salman Khan and other heroes of the 90s. But I have never been able to get over the fact that he played father to Anil Kapoor in one movie and grandfather in the next movie. Similarly, he has played friend, jija, father, grandfather etc to Rishi Kapoor. I can go on and on about the various actors with whom he played such characters. All of these just show the love this man has towards all things connected with films and movie making.

He turned producer in 2000 with “Bariwali” which was in Bengali and had his wife Kirron Kher play a lonely, sad, unfortunate, middle-aged woman. He directed ‘Om Jai Jagdish” in 2002. Additionally he has appeared in a few international television serials, and films. He has also been seen in Punjabi, Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam, Marathi films.

His brother Raju Kher is an actor as also his wife and her son (his step-son) Sikandar Kher are actors.

This was a song that I posted in 2020 on Anupamji’s birthday. There are so many choices available to go with today’s post. I have zeroed in on a song where we have Rishi Kapoor playing Anupam Kher’s ‘chela’ reminding us of Joy Mukherjee and I.S Johar in “Shaagird”.

This movie “Shreemaan Aashique” (1993) was directed by Deepak Anand and produced by Shakeel Noorani. The film starred Urmila Matondkar, Rishi Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Bindu, Reema Lagoo, Mehmood, Annu Kapoor etc. Music was by Nadeem-Shravan, Sameer and Noor Kaskar (never heard this name before) were the lyricists. I recently discovered that Anupam Kher has sung a few songs in movies and today’s song is one of them. The other voice in the song is Ahmed Mirza (never heard this name too).

I apologize to all the purists in subjecting them to this song, but we shall see the positive side that this actor didn’t mind making himself a buffoon too.
Wishing Anupam Kher health and happiness
