Hullo Atuldom

Today’s is a “this happened to me” post. It was a “dream” more than a “dream come true”. A chance to see the Dream Girl in person on my last trip to Mumbai.

So this is what happened- we had just landed at Mumbai airport. I was very tired after a long day followed by a delayed-flight. I told my husband that today i am in no position to walk the distance to the baggage-claim and am planning to hop on to any buggy that ferries passengers and I did. There were two passengers already on that buggy and the lady who was sitting mentioned that the passenger who was in the buggy that overtook us was Hema Malini. And I was disappointed that I had missed having a glimpse of her.

When we reached the drop-off point, I saw that the Dream Girl had just got off and was being courteous with the airport staff and allowing selfies. Very hesitantly I waved out to her and she acknowledged. Then I hinted through action that I would like to come closer and also click pictures with her and she permitted. Then my husband clicked a picture and she said:- “you will not get a good pic from so far, come closer.” And we had one more click which I shared instantly with my children.

My son commented immediately “He has never seen me smile so brilliantly.” But my personal feeling was there can be no smile as Brilliant as that of the Dream Girl -Hema Malini. She still looks a dream, and carries herself so elegantly and majestically. She displayed no airs about being a star or MP i.e. Member of Parliament.

My husband mentioned to her that I was a huge fan of hers and occasionally write about her in the blog. To this she replied- “hope you don’t write anything uncomplimentary”, and I said “oh no, not at all. We write only about the songs and their related movies.” And she gave me her brilliant smile. But this is one encounter that will stay with me forever and I am yet to believe it happened to me.

Recently my husband asked me why I haven’t written about my experience and I said I was waiting for an occasion. Plus I was wondering which song of hers should go with the post, and on what occasion do I present it etc. Today seems to be a good enough occasion. The anniversary of the lyricist of the song.

It is the 18th anniversary of lyricist Anand Bakshi (21 July 1930 – 30 March 2002). He was born Bakshi Anand Prakash Vaid, in Rawalpindi, in modern day Pakistan. His family came to India in the aftermath of partition. Poetry writing was his hobby and when he joined the Indian Army he continued to write whenever time permitted.

All of this are well known facts about Anand Bakshi. We also know that simultaneously he tried marketing his songs to Mumbai film industry. He finally got discharged from the army in 1956 and tried to become a writer or singer but found his foothold as a lyrics writer and “Bhala Aadmi” in 1958 was his first released movie where he wrote four songs.

“Mehndi Lage Mere Haath” with music by Kalyanji Anandji was his first success. And then the songs which found a mark in the hearts and minds of cine-goers never stopped. His wish to sing in movies was fulfilled when he sand “Baaghon mein bahaar aayi” and another solo for “Mom Ki Gudiya” in 1972. he has sung few more songs but written close to 3500 and we have 1036 of them on the blog.

Coming back to today’s song. On my return from Mumbai, last weekend, I saw “Pratiggya”(1975) starring Hema Malini, Dharmendra and Ajit. I don’t remember seeing the movie at the time of its release. This was a movie produced by Dharmendra himself and had “main jat yamla pagla deewana” (the only song from the movie on the blog) which is still in the minds of the fans even after a lapse of 45 years.

Laxmikant- Pyarelal were the music directors with whom Anand Bakshi collaborated in 302 movies. As I was writing this I came across the list of movies released in 1975, fifteen of which had songs written by Anand Bakshi, would like to know if it is a record of some kind.

The song with this post comes immediately after the song “jatt yamla pagla deewana” comes to a close. At the end of the song a drunk Ajit Singh (Dharmendra) falls into the river and dreams that Radha (Hema) is Sahibaan and he is Mirza.

So here is this love song where Hema looks a dream in the dream sequence and let us say Thank You to Anand Bakshi for leaving us this gem.


Song-Uthh neend se mirziya jaag jaa (Pratigya)(1975) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus

bedardi teer kamaan se ae ae

aisa lagta hai pyaar ke ae

humko mar ke bhi soniya aa aa aa

jo maar sake mujhe soniye
ae ae ae ae

Hullo Atuldom

Ideally this post should have come last year, when this veteran of about a few hundred movies, turned 80. But then that has not happened.
I have decided that we shall not let the occasion go unnoticed. And in south India, the celebration for a person turning 80 is normally on completing 81, as the system of calculating the auspicious date to celebrate says that the person should have witnessed a 1000 full moons in his life, with the life being said to have started after the 1st birthday. Etc. Etc. Etc.

Whatever be the logic, the celebration called “Sadabhishekam” is after the person crosses 81 and our celebrity is turning 81 today. So here we are wishing this veteran a Happy 81st birthday.

He was born Syed Ishtiaq Ahmed Jafri on 29th March 1939 in Amritsar. He made his first screen appearance at the young age of 11 or 12. B.R.Chopra’s “Afsana” was the starting point followed by “Ab Dilli Door Nahin”, “Hum Panchi ek Daal ke”, “Do Bigha Zameen”, “Aar Paar” etc. AVM’s “Bhabhi” saw him in his first role of a grownup. And then there was no looking back and we have seen him in movies till 2017- a really long career. He played a leading man in a few movies before finding his comic timing in “Brahmachari”.

He has had many famous songs filmed on him -“Paas baitho tabiyat bahal jayegi”, “In pyar ki raahon mein”, we have seen him shaking a leg when Shamshad Begum sang, for Kumkum’s debut in movies, “kabhi aar kabhi paar”. This post introduces us to the person whose 81st birthday it is today.

Yes we are wishing “Soorma Bhopali” of Sholay a.k.a father of Jaaved and Naaved Jaafri of ‘Booogie Boogie’ fame. Simply put we are celebrating comedian Jagdeep’s birthday.

He may have done around 100 movies prior to “Sholay” but when Salim-Javed wrote the character of ‘Soorma Bhopali’ it changed Jagdeep’s fortunes forever. He was seen in many movies after “Sholay” too but very few remember him as the sidekick of Gopi (Mithun Chakravarty) ‘Kabari” in Surakksha”” (1979); ‘Chandu alias James Bond’ in the 1977 release “Agent Vinod”; he had a tiny-blink-n-miss role in Feroz Khan’s “Qurbani”. Jagdeep was forever requested to reappraise his Soorma Bhopali, atleast once, in many subsequent movies. He himself wrote and directed a movie with the title “Soorma Bhopali” in 1988. I don’t know much about that movie other than the fact that it had a whole lot of Jagdeep’s co-actors from “Sholay” making guest and special appearances in that movie. IMDB.com gives the list of actors as Agha, Amitabh Bachchan, Master Bhagwan, Birbal, Brahmachari, Danny, Dharmendra; Aruna Irani appears to be the sole female in the starcast.

I have chosen a song from this 1988 movie to accompany this post. The music directors were Dilip Sen- Sameer Sen and songs were written by Asad Bhopali, Jaan Nissar Akhtar and Jagdeep himself has written a song. It was a difficult task selecting a song from this movie as Jagdeep has also sung a few songs in the movie. But I finally decided that we will have a song that accompanies the movie’s credits that is what I have deduced from the available clip. This song is sung by Mohd Aziz and Jagdeep and Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. As I was writing the lyrics I caught the names of lot more actors than those that I have mentioned who were common to Sholay and this movie.

Here is wishing our very own Soorma Bhopali, who had a one-liner to his character in Sholay that said “Soorma Bhopali aise nahin hai”, A very Healthy and happy Birthday.


Song-Main hoon Soorma Bhopali (Soorma Bhopali)(1988) Singer-Md Aziz , Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Dilip Sen Samir Sen
Jagdeep

assalaam vaalekkum

beta haath ka mail hai paisa

paise ki parwaah na karna
bhale kaam mein rehna aage
uske karam par rakhna bharosa

hullo Atuldom

Under Sudhirji’s current series “Songs repeated in hindi films” he posted Ek Ladki Bheegi Bhaagi Si on March 17th, that reminded me that Farooque Sheikh’s Birth anniversary was round the corner. he would have turned 72 today (25 march 2020).

I was reading up about Farooque Sheikh ((25 March 1948 – 28 December 2013) and discovered he was the son of a lawyer and was a law graduate himself. He had leanings towards theatre and met his future wife Roopa and future co-star Shabana Azmi on the stages of St. Xavier’s College in Mumbai.

His first released movie was M.S. Sathyu’s “Garam Hawa”. What followed was a list of movies that represented the meaningful cinema of the 70s and 80s, movies that were neither ART or COMMERCIAL but more of the MIDDLE-OF-THE-ROAD kind; movies that the middle class audiences of those times identified with. We saw him in Chashme Baddoor, Katha, Rang Birangi, Ek Baar Chale Aao, Faasle, Ab Aayega Maza, Biwi Ho Toh Aisi etc.
Today we shall have a song from “Biwi Ho Toh Aisi” which had an unusual pairing. We were used to seeing Farooque with Deepti Naval in most films back then, but “BHTA” had Farooque pairing with Rekha romantically, and Kadar Khan and Bindu played his parents and Salman Khan (this was Salman Khan’s debut movie) played his brother.

This was not the first time that Rekha teamed up with Farooque Sheikh. He had played a Nawaab who was in love with Umrao in Umrao Jaan. There was one other movie with the same pairing but we see Farooque Sheikh playing the typical romantic Bollywood hero here.
Here is today’s song.


Song-Phool gulaab ka (Biwi Ho To Aisi)(1988) Singers-Md Aziz, Anuradha Paudwal, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Hello Atuldom

She was a child star to start with, facing the camera for the first time, probably at the age of 8 or 9 in 1948. Her father was a successful actor-producer-director of his time, but his death at a young age had this Baby becoming a child actress so that she could support her family. I am referring to Master Vinayak Damodar Karnataki’s daughter Nanda Karnataki a.k.a Nanda.

She debuted as Baby Nanda in the 1948 release “Mandir”. Her first adult role was in “Toofan Aur Diya” in 1956 at the age of maybe 17. She had a long career where she acted with as a supporting roles of kid sister, second heroine etc before graduating to heroine roles in the 60s. She paired with Shashi Kapoor in 8 films when he was not yet a successful star. “Jab Jab Phool Khile” helped her have a image change and this was seen in later movies like “Joru Ka Ghulam” and “The Train” (both with Rajesh Khanna), “Abhilasha”, “Beti” opposite Sanjay Khan. She had a successful pairing with Jeetendra too in movies like “Dharti kahe pukaar ke”

This Video that I saw sometime ago on youtube has Tabassum, with whom Nanda had near parallel career and was friends till she passed away in 2014, giving us some insight into Nanda’s life.

I spent some time trying to get the right song to remember this beautiful leading lady of the 60s and 70s. And here is a song from a movie that released in 1973, one of her last as a leading lady, where she is opposite the Bengali actor Ranjit Mallick. One song from this movie has been posted on the blog in 2012.

“Naya Nasha” directed by Hari Dutt and produced by C.V.K. Shastry had Nanda, Ranjit Mallick, Madan Puri, etc. etc in its cast. Our personal encyclopedia has given us an idea of what the movie was about in the comments of the only song from this movie to have appeared on the blog. the movie had four songs here is the second on the sixth anniversary of Baby Nanda i.e. Nanda.


Song-Aao karen baaten (Naya Nasha)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Sapan Chakravorty

Lyrics

ae
aao karen baatein
aur baatein mulaaqaatein
o o pyaar ke din aaye
prem ki raatein
ae
aao karein baatein
aur baatein mulaaqaatein
pyaar ke din aaye
prem ki raatein

aise kyun khoye ho o
rut suhaani mein ae ae
aise kyun khoye ho o
rut suhaani mein ae
phir kahaan ye mausam
iss jawaani mein
iss hawaa se
lag rahi hai
aag paani mein
ae
aao karein baatein
aur baatein mulaaqaatein
oo pyaar ke din aaye
prem ki raatein

hai milan ki ye bela aa
kab milan hoga aa aa
hai milan ki ye bela aa
kab milan hoga aa aa aa
dil tadap jaayenge ae
tab milan hoga
ab toh hamse
hans ke keh do
ab milan hoga
ae
aao kare baatein
aur baatein mulaaqatein
oooo pyaar ke din aaye
prem ki raatein
ae
aao karein baatein
aur baatein mulaaqaatein
pyaar ke din aaye
prem ki raatein aen

Hullo Atuldom

i am just unable too stay away from the blog.

7th March is the 65th birthday of a highly versatile actor who goes by the name Anupam Kher. His journey in Bollywood began with a movie, where as a 28-year-old, he portrayed the character of a 65 year old senior whose son dies in the US and the senior has to struggle his way through corrupt excise officers to get the mortal remains of his son released from cargo. Anupam was excellent in that role and he won all awards possible in that year. But what followed this success was- he was stuck portraying characters much older than his calendar age- Madhuri Dixit’s father in Tezaab, Anil Kapoor (who is a year younger to Anupam) had Anupam playing his grandfather in Vijay (1988). As if playing Anil Kapoor’s grandfather was not enough his character was father to Hema Malini and Raj Babbar, father in law to Rajesh Khanna and Moushmi; and finally even Rishi Kapoor’s grandfather. The only other actor (in my knowledge) who has played older character with elan is Sanjeev Kumar.

He is a two-time winner of the special jury award at the National Film Awards, eight-time Filmfare Award winner of which five-times were as Best Comedian. He is also a Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan winner.

It is difficult to pin-point which is my favourite Anupam Kher character from all of his (close to) 500 movies. But his role of an alcoholic singer, trying to cope with the demons in his mind and his relationship with his daughter, in the 1989 Mahesh Bhatt directed “Daddy”, is what i would like to present a song from, today on his 65th birthday. The movie was released on Doordarshan and i don’t think it had a theatrical release.(That was the time when many low-budget films were being premiered on television.) It had Pooja Bhatt making her debut with Soni Razdan, Neena Gupta, Sulbha Arya, Suhas Joshi, Raj Zutshi, Manohar Singh, Satish Kaushik, Akash Khurana as others in the cast. “Daddy” was said to be director Mahesh Bhatt’s window to his own life. This is one of the movies where Anupam Kher was the protagonist, another movie that I recall was also a film that released on television “Zevar”, which was produced and directed by Basu Chatterjee where Anupam Kher got to play a character of his (then calendar) age.

Today’s song is written by Suraj Sanim and Rajesh Roshan is the music director. Talat Aziz is the playback singer.


Song-Aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange (Daddy)(1989) Singer-Talaz Aziz, Lyrics-Suraj Sanim, MD-Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange
aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange
aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange
mere apne mere hone ki nishaani maange
aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange

main bhatkta hi raha dard ke veeraane mein
waqt likhta raha chehre pe har pal ka hisaab
meri shohrat meri deewangi ki nazar huyi
pi gayi mai ki botal mere geeton ke kitaab
aaj lauta hoon toh hansne ki ada bhool gaya aa
yeh shehar bhoola mujhe
main bhi isey bhool gaya
mere apne mere hone ki nishaani maangen
aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange

mera phan phir mujhe baazaar mein le aaya hai
yeh woh jaa hai ke jahaan mehr o wafaa bikte hain
baap bikte hai aur lafze jigar bikte hai
kokh bikti hai dil bikte hain sar bikte hain
iss badalti huyi duniya ka khuda koi nahin
saste daamon mein har roz khuda bikte hain
bikte hain
bikte hain
mere apne mere hone ke nishaani maangen
aaina mujhse meri pehli si soorat maange

har khareedaar ko baazar mein bikta paaya
hum kya paayenge kisine yahaan kya paaya
mere ehsaas mere phool kahin aur chalen
bol pooja meri bachchi kahin aur chalen
aur chalen
aur chalen

Hullo Atuldom

Back after a small absence where I terribly missed my favourite addiction- writing for the blog. Various reasons, primary being a minor mishap which has put my right hand in cast, and taken me away from the comfort of my desktop. But here I am, at the first available opportunity, when I got a few minutes with my computer. I have promised myself that I will write a very short post and obey the well-meaning advice of my friends of the blog and outside of the blog.

This post is to remember the female superstar of Indian Film Industry whose anniversary it is on 24th February. The star who was also a National award-winning actress, who had highly emotive eyes, a fabulous hold on comedy and a dancer of a calibre of her own, left us shocked by departing from this mortal world on this date two years ago. She made a beautiful pair with all her co actors be it Jaya Prada, Poonam Dhillon, Smita Patil and other ladies as also Kamalhasan, Rajnikanth, (who were her co-stars in her debut film as an adult)and all the actors of her times in the Indian film industry- name any hero or actor and you can have a movie of hers with him irrespective of the language. We have her in at least one movie with even Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Nasiruddin Shah, Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt etc. It is difficult to point out who she paired successfully with or was eye-catching with.

Today’s song featuring this superstar/ actress is from an inane-typical-masala Bollywood dishoom-dishoom film that released in 1990. It was produced by MP Jain and directed by Shibu Mitra. It had a star cast which was led by Sridevi and Dharmendra along with Sonam, Chunky Pandey, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Anupam Kher, AmrishPuri, Dara Singh, Satyen Kappu as the masalas of the movie.

The music director was the flavour of those years -Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan was the lyricist. I haven’t seen “Naakabandi”(1990) and don’t intend to either but I remember two songs from the movie – one by Usha Uthup and another is by Asha Bhonsle.

Today’s song is by Asha Bhonsle. It shows Sridevi’s dancing and emoting expertise. I am sure Saroj Khan would have been the choreographer. The situation of the song seems to be an audition in front of Sadashiv Amrapurkar (hope I am right in recognising) but is a stage song. But definitely Anjaan has given an appropriate description Sridevi through the song – she was “kamaal” in all departments of acting.

As I was seeing the video of the song, I kept feeling “how sweet?” specially at the point where she mouths Gabbar Singh’s dialogues and we have Sambha (Mcmohan) and Kaalia (VijuKhote) reacting. Really pleasing choreography.
Missing you Sridevi


Song-Rekha ko dekha toone Hema ko dekha (Naakaabandi)(1990) Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, Md-Bappi Lahiri

ho jaayega maalamaal

Rekha ko dekha tune Hema ko dekha
Nargis ko dekha tune Nutan ko dekha
zara idhar palat kar dekh
main lagti hoon
sridevi lagti hoon
main lagti hoon
sridevi lagti hoon
thhaam thhaam
zara dil ko le thhaam
dil ko le thhaam
zara dil ko le thhaam
thaam thaam
zara dil ko le thaam
dil ko le thhaam
zara dil ko le thhaam

Hullo Atuldom

26th January is a national occasion which is celebrated across the country with hoisting of the national tricolour in the country’s capital New Delhi followed by the rest of the country in educational institutions, government buildings and some private housing complexes. There are speeches and parades all around showcasing india’s diverse cultures and achievements.

Our housing society too celebrates this national day with flag hoisting and a gathering of the residents. There is a small difference in that we also conduct a small Pooja the previous evening followed by small acts by the children of the apartment, dinner and games (in that order, mind it). The night always comes to an end with a game of housie and antakshari, I am going to be enjoying it this year after a long gap.

25th January happened to be the birthday of Kavita Krishnamurthy who was born Sharada Krishnamurthy in New Delhi. She is a trained classical singer who has also learnt Rabindra Sangeet. She first recorded a song under the baton of Hemant Kumar as a co-singer to Lata Mangeshkar in 1971 for a Bengali movie. In the second half of the 70s she was reintroduced to Hemantda by Ranu Mukherjee and was used as a singer in Hemantdas’ live shows from where Manna Dey spotted her and her slow journey into film music began.

Initially she was a dubbing artist and cut demos of songs intended to be sung by established singers. the 1980 release “Maang Bharo Sajna” featured a song in her own voice but was deleted from the final cut of the film. Her first major hit was in 1985 when “Pyaar Jhukta Nahin” hit the screens and “tumse milkar na jaane kyun” became a hit. From then she has been on the Indian film firmament with songs in Kannada (where she had recorded her first film song), Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati, English, Urdu, Nepali, Bengali, Odiya, Konkani etc. She was a Padmashri winner in 2005 and four time filmfare award winner. A humble and courteous human being who I had the luck to meet on one of my trips between Bangalore and Mumbai. She is very approachable and forever smiling. Here is wishing that smile stays forever.

Today we have a version of our National Song “Vande Mataram” in the voices of Kavita Krishnamurthy and Usha Uthup from the 2001 Karan Johar directed Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. We have various artists who have presented this song in their own styles. The ones which I love to hear on repeat are by Hemant Kumar in the 1952 release “Anand Math” and A.R.Rahman’s non-film version which came in 1997 which starts as “Maa tujhe salaam”. K3G had 5 songs by Jatin-Lalit, 5 by Sandesh Shandilya and one by Aadesh Shrivastva. Today’s “Vande Matram” is by Sandesh Shandilya.

Wishing everyone a Happy Republic Day. Let us try and be good citizens who are responsible towards our country with our actions.

Hullo Atuldom

Listening to music is a pastime. And if it is film songs – all the more good. Plus if it is HFM I couldn’t ask for more- anyone who knows me knows this. Fellow atulites included. Followers of the blog also are aware that “vividh bharati” the radio station, is my reminder diary.

So soon as I heard the program remembering Parveen Babi – of the lustrous hair- I looked for hitherto unposted songs and found many possibilities.

I have zeroed in on a song where she is romancing Jeetendra or trying to stop him from getting into trouble. I must admit that I know two songs from this movie, one of which, a Kishore Kumar- Asha Bhonsle duet Naye puraane saal mein ek raat baaki has been posted by Sudhirji in 2014.

The movie “Raksha” had a total of five songs, the handiwork of the trusted pair of RD Burman- Anand Bakshi. The movie was supposed to be a spy movie with Jeetendra’s character having the code name ‘Agent 116’. For added measure Parveen Babi also had two names – Chanda and Bijli. Today we have the Jeetendra lip syncing to Mohd. Rafi and Asha is the female playback.

Thinking of the beautiful Parveen Babi on the occasion of her anniversary.


Song-Main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do (Raksha)(1981) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

main chalta Hoon
mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do

o
main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do

o main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do

yakeen karo kisi tarah
milenge kal issi tarah
yakeen karo kisi tarah
milenge kal issi tarah
kal toh kitni door hai
mera dil majboor hai
thehero thodi der toh
dil ka haal sunane do

o main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do

lallaalala laalalalala
laalalalalala
abhi mile abhi chale
rahe mujhe bade gile
abhi mile abhi chale
rahe mujhe bade gile

sab gile mit jaayenge
jab gale lag jaayenge
itni door baithe ho
thoda paas toh aane do
hmmm hmmm rurururururu
main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do (rururururu)

khuli hawa haseen Samaa
ruko zara chale kahaan
khuli hawa haseen Samaa
ruko zara chale kahaan

ek toh kaam zaroori hai
dooje kuchch majboori hai
donon baatein jhoothi hain
yeh hain saaf bahaane do
rurururururu

main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do

o main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
laa laa laa la la la la laa

Hullo Atuldom

Happy festival at the outset.

A festival that goes by various names :- Makara Sankranti (AP, Karnataka, Kerala, Goa, Maharashtra), Pongal (TN & Pondicherry), Lohri (Punjab, Haryana, Delhi), Sakraat & Makraat (Bihar, UP, Uttarakhand), Uttarayan (Gujarat, Diu, Daman), Suggi (in parts of Karnataka), Magh Saaji (HP), Ghughuti – (Kumaon), Makara Chaula (Odhisha), Kicheri (Poorvanchal, East UP), Pousha Sankranti (Bengal and North East), Magh Bihu (Assam), Shishur Sankraat (Kashmir ), etc etc. Outside of the country, in some neighbouring Asian countries to be exact, it is celebrated as Maaghe Sankrast – Nepal, Tirmoori – Sindh Pakistan, Songkran -Thailand , Pi Ms. Lao – Laos, Thingyan – Myanmar, Mohan Songkran – Cambodia etc. Basically we are all celebrating the transition of the Sun across the Equator, on it’s journey from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere.

Each region of India have their own ways of celebrating the event but as I have come to understand there are a few things common to all –Jaggery, til (also called gingelly, or sesame seeds), sugarcane, and freshly harvested ears of corn, wheat or even turmeric (in South India). Then of course the children enjoy themselves with kite flying which takes on the form of competition at times. So let us say Happy Festival. Tamil Nadu has its festivities spread over 3-4 days culminating in what is called Mattu Pongal – celebrated the next day of Sankrant with races with cattle involved. (PETA has tried to bring some order to the extent to which the animals can be made use of, and the conditions in which the races take place).

Last weekend, I was lucky to be asked to join my Chacha and Chachi, to an evening full of OPN songs by a newly formed music group. The members of the group were out to entertain themselves and showcase their talent among their close friends and relatives. The closest anyone of the group had come to anything Bollywood was when the hostess’s father had his ardent fan moment when he came face to face with OP Nayyar sometime in the 70s or 80s. That man was a self taught Harmonica player and encouraged his children and wife to sing along. And the wife and daughter of the (now) deceased man were at the forefront of the group which had female and male singers who sang in their own voices without aping any of the originals and that was a welcome change. The group presented medleys of songs with similar beats- the trade mark tonga-beat songs, and songs dipped in Punjabi folk tunes. The evening began with the song from ‘Sambandh’ – “Chal Akela Chal Akela” and then one song followed the next. The evening climaxed with songs that fell in tune with “Sar Pe Topi Laal Haath Mein Resham Ka Roomal”. In between there was an instrumental rendition of songs from ‘Kashmir ki Kali’, ‘Ek Musafir Ek Haseena’, ‘Kismat’ and ‘Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon’ using the saxophone by Shri Shyam Raj ji who (if I heard right) had been a saxophone player for many of OPN’s songs.

Let me add that we were invited to the evening because my cousin’s husband has taken up singing and joined this group post his retirement. It was a revelation that he sang so well. The first song he sang that evening was “Piya Piya Piya Mora Jiya Pukaare” and “Surma Mera Niraala” was his next. And I must say he “yodels” almost like the Kishore Kumar whose fan he is.

As is my habit (ever since I associated with this blog) the first thing I did on returning home was to look up the anniversary page of our blog and see what was the date of OPN’s anniversaries. Next I checked what songs of OPN are yet to make their appearance on the blog. I found many movies of the 50s & 60s with two or three songs left to attain yyiippeeeehood. Then I began looking up for associated videos on YouTube, these songs are not yet available on YouTube too. In fact only the audio of some songs are available and not the whole movie. So that makes reaching videos difficult. But we cannot let the occasion of remembering OPN go by without a song.

So here it is. A song from the film ‘Raagini’ of 1958. The film is produced by Ashok Kumar, jointly with TS Ganesh, and is directed by Rakhan. This movie had a song which was enacted on screen by Kishore Kumar and playback was by Mohd Rafi. Now I discovered another song, as I was hunting songs for this post, which is again classical raaga based and Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan and Fateh Ali Khan are the playback singers. On screen we have Padmini performing a classical dance and Kishore Kumar sitting on stage in a classical gaayaki mode and lip-syncing. A very uncharacteristic Kishore and a very uncharacteristic Omkar Prasad Nayyar who was popular as OP Nayyar. The song ends with Padmini matching steps to the brilliant tabla accompaniment.

As I was writing this post I recollected a post by Atul ji where he has mentioned about movies with names of popular actresses of the time but the actresses were not part of the cast of that particular movie, e.g. ‘Kalpana’ (1960) didn’t have Kalpana as heroine. An this film, ‘Raagini’ has Padmini as the heroine; Raagini the actress was her sister.

Let us enjoy this rare presentation, Kishore Kumar lip syncing a classical song in the voice of Bade Fateh Ali Khan.


Song – Chhed Diye Mere Dil Ke Taar Kyun (Raagini) (1958) Singers – Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan, Bade Fateh Ali Khan, Lyricist – Jaanisar Akhtar, MD – O P Nayyar
Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan + Fateh Ali Khan

Hullo Atuldom

Today is the date when we think of our favourite innovator of the 70s and 80s. The songs he composed for his debut, in the 1961 released “Chhote Nawaab”, were of a different flavour from the music he created in his later years. Of course, I don’t need to mention that today is Pachamda a.k.a R D Burman’s remembrance day.

It is 26 years since his passing and we, his fans, still talk of him in present tense. We do not tire of describing his love for experimenting with sounds- using a glass and spoon or broom and comb to create the opening note of a song; or asking an artist to gargle warm water to provide a dramatic effect to a scene. Asha Bhonsle has often mentioned how she had to practice breathing to sing “piya tu ab toh aaja”.

My quest for a song to go with this post lead me to the blog’s “List-of-songs-by-movies” page of the blog and I found that we have yiippeeeed all of RD’s initial movies viz: – Chhote Nawab, Bhoot Bangla, Teesra Kaun, Teesri Manzil, Pati Patni, Chandan ka palna, Bahaaron Ke Sapne, Abhilasha, Pyaar Ka Mausam, and Waaris i.e. his contribution to the world of HFM in the 60s has been fully represented on the blog.

Of the movies of the next decade, the more popular ones are yiippeeeed and that is a longer list which I recommend the readers to find for themselves. Same is the case with movies of the 80s where we find that many popular movies are yet to even debut on the blog and some are one or two songs away from being yyiippeeeed. That means we are spoiled for choice as to which song will go with the post. Then the next point to be considered is whether we want a song sung by Panchamda or just a song with just his music. Then I thought if I wanted a solo, duet- all male or male-female duet etc etc. The possible songs kept changing even as I wrote the post and finally, I did an akad-bakad-bambe-boo and landed on this song which will help the concerned movie attain Yiippeeeehood.

Following songs from the movie have been covered so far:

Sapna mera toot gaya
Hamne tumko dekha tumne hamko dekha aise
khullam khulla pyaar karenge hum donon
Ek main aur ek tu

For the story and personal thoughts connected with “Khel Khel Mein” a visit to the above posts will suffice. Today’s song is perfect for the weather North of India and many parts of the northern hemisphere of the world are currently experiencing- supremely cold winds and snow in many areas. I have seen this movie a number of times. If I am not wrong, other than at the time of its release in the 70s, only the mukhada and first antara are there in the movie. With this Khel Khel Mein has attained Yyiippeeeehood.

Let us get to the song without much ado. It is an RDB- Gulshan Bawra- Kishore Kumar- Asha Bhosle classic.


Song-Aaye lo pyaar ke din aaye (Khel Khel Mein)(1975) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulshan Bawra, MD-R D Burman
Both

Lyrics

aaye lo pyaar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saayein
woh bhi iss tarah,
mil jaayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re,

aaja re aaja re,
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re

aaye lo pyar ke din aaye

lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re

aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye

sang chalein toh manzil door nahin hai
jahaan bhi tu hai manzil meri wahin hai
ho ho ho
sang chale to manzil dur nahin hai
arre jahan bhi tu hai manzil meri wahin hai
yeh kaarvaan chalta rahe
chaahe jahaan jalta rahe
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saaye
wo bhi is tarah,
mil jayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re

aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye

yoon hi rahein nazar mein jawaan nazaare
iss vaadi mein gunje geet hamare
ho ho ho
yoon hi rahein nazar mein jawaan nazaare

iss vaadi mein gunje geet hamare
hansti rahe yeh zindagi
badhti rahe dil ki lagi

aaye lo pyar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saaye
wo bhi is tarah,
mil jayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re,
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saaye
woh bhi iss tarah,
mil jaayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re

aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
