#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Toofaan -1975#
—————————————

Today’s song is from the movie “Toofaan-1975”.

I have vague memories of watching this movie in my childhood. But I do not remember the movie, its songs, or its story. What I remember is the hero wearing a mask (Zorro type mask) and riding a horse, with a sword in his hand (?).

I had in one of my earlier post on the blog mentioned earlier that I get to watch the movies ‘Do Khilaadi-1976’, ‘Double Cross-1973’ and ‘Toofaan-1975’ on back to back days at small town ‘Malkapur’ in the ‘Vidarbha’ region of Maharashtra (somewhere around 1976-1977).

My parents were on tour to this place for their ‘Marathi play’ to be staged there. I must be around eight-nine years old then. I and my brothers get to watch these movies then. As I mentioned earlier, I carried the memories of one song (or rather their ‘mukhda’ only) each from ‘Do Khilaadi’ and ‘Double Cross’ and from this movie ‘Toofaan’ I remember the masked hero only and the name of the hero i.e. Vikram.

Today I present the first song from this movie ‘Toofaan-1975’ on the blog and this movie is making a debut on the blog today.

‘Toofaan-1975’ was directed by Kedar Kapoor for ‘Sargam Pictures (Pvt.) Ltd., Bombay’.

It had Vikram, Priyadarshini, Roopesh Kumar, Jagdeep, B.M. Vyas, Jeevan, Jayraj, Trilok Kapoor, Sajjan, Rajan Haksar, Abhijit Sen, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti Kumar, Shetty, V. Gopal, Shriram, Ramlal, Vijay Khanna, Urmila Bhatt, Praveen Pal, Meena T., Bahnumati, Sujata and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975.

‘Toofaan-1975’ has seven songs, all of them penned by Ravindra Jain.

Ravindra Jain also composed the music for this movie.

Here is the list of songs this movie has.

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Toofaan toofaan hai mera naam Mohd Rafi
02 O barkha mujhe sach sach bataa Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
03 Pyaar kar, pyaar kar, dhaar kar, dhaar kar Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
04 Baj jaayega baaja baj jaayega Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, chorus
05 Reshma mera naam hai, naachna mera kaam hai Asha Bhonsle
06 Chalo koi khel khelen ham Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
07 Sachche ka sachche ka bolbaala Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, chorus

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. It is an ‘introduction type’ song and its lyrics are very simple and straightforward. ( I listen to the other couple of songs from this movie and I find they also have very simple and straightforward lyrics 😊. Our readers will be able to listen to them on the blog as and when they are posted here).

On screen we see the ‘masked hero’ lip syncing this song ( because he doesn’t take out the ‘mask’ and so his face cannot be seen 😊, but he must be Vikram – the hero of this movie 😊 ).
We do not have any option to watch the song as it is because the hero is telling us in the song that ‘karoon main to apne hi jee ki, chaahe kuchh bhi ho anjaam’ 😊. We can see the hero travelling riding on a horse through different terrains and waiving people (villagers) and taking care of them and helping them.

( I guess this movie must have been inspired by the character of ‘Zorro’. We have one more movie like this 😊 )

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us listen to and enjoy today’s song sung by Rafi Saab. Lyrics are by Ravindra Jain, and he has also composed the music.

By listening to the today’s song we can also guess what the movie is all about …

With the today’s song ‘Toofaan-1975’ makes its debut on the blog and joins the ‘Toofaan’ (s 😊) of ‘1954’, ‘1969’, and ‘1989’ already available on the blog.

That is all for now 😊 let’s listen to the song now …

Editor’s note:-This song from “Toofaan”(1975) is Mohammad Rafi’s 3200th song in the blog and 1500th solo Mohammad Rafi song in the blog.

A singing Hero is not a novelty for those who are old film lovers, because in the initial era of Talkie films, most actors sang their own songs in the films. Though the Playback singing was introduced in 1935 in Calcutta and in 1937 in Bombay, it took a few more years to become fully prevalent in all films.

When the Talkie films started in 1931, one of the conditions for the newcomers to join as an actor/actress for lead roles, was that he/she should be able to sing properly. Since most actresses came from singing families (read Tawaifs), just a reasonably good face and a figure was good enough as they knew how to sing. But not all males knew how to sing. So, almost all heroes sang their own songs and so you will find songs by actors like W.M.khan, Kashinath,Khaleel,Master Mohammad, Master Nissar, master Shiraz, Ashraf Khan, Govindrao Tembe, Saigal, panchotiya, Shahu Modak, Marutirao pehelwan etc etc in the films from 1931 to 1937. Many times if the Hero is not able to sing, roles for the Music directors were created and he would act and sing songs in the films for his roles. After this, genuine singers like Surendra, Motilal, Ashok kumar started acting and singing and by the end of the 30’s decade playback was firmly established in all films.

However few popular heroes never sang any songs-like Master Vithal, Jairaj, Prithviraj kapoor etc. Amongst these Non-Singer Heroes of the early era, the story of Jairaj is very interesting. Paidi Jairaj or P. Jairaj ( 28-9-1909 to 11-8-2000 ) was a very handsome and well built young man,when he joined films. After doing 11 silent films,he made his first Talkie,’ Shikari” in 1932. It was produced by a Hyderabad company-Eastern Films.He acted in 170 films and had received the Phalke award and Padma Bhushan in 1980.

In the early phase of Talkie films,there used to be,on average 15 to 20 songs in every film. It was compulsory for every Hero and Heroine to sing their own songs live( playback came in 1935 and became common in 38-39 only). To help the non-singer actors,studios used to keep trained classical experts. Otherwise also most MDs in those days were classical singers themselves.

Thus,Jairaj too was expected to sing songs. He did not like singing,because he was horrible at singing. The MD of film Patit pawan-33 was Prof.B.R.Deodhar,who was a classical singer himself.(Later on he settled with running a musical school). he was determined to make Jairaj sing a song. Finally a song was recorded and filmed-“prem magan sakhi”. Jairaj had sung it so bad,that the song was removed from the film from the second show itself. Jairaj is a Hero of those days who never sang in films. Even after playback was used regularly,in his 170 films,Jairaj has sung less than 20 songs on screen !

This was the case of all Genre of films except Stunt films For stunt films, heroes were required to have a Muscular body, ride Horses, fight criminals, Jump from heights, drive Car / Motorcycles, do fencing etc. C. Ramchandra, the famous Music Director , started his film career as an actor and in his first film itself he became the hero of film Naganand-1935. The film was a great flop in its First day First Show itself where only 6 people came to see the film ! He lost the job and started visiting studios to get a job. One day, he was called by JBH Wadia for an interview. CR was very lean. Though good looking, he did noit have good clothes, so he appeared for an interview in Shirt and Pyjama only.

Wadia saw him and asked,” Any experience ?”
CR gave him the Naganand film booklet and said proudly,” I have worked as a Hero”.
Wadia did not even touch the booklet and asked,” Can you ride a Horse ?’
” No”
” Can you fight with 10 goons ?”
” No”
” Can you jump from 20 feet ?”
” No”
” Then what sort of a Hero you were. Get out .” The interview ended. Wadia was famous for making Stunt films. Same CR became a popular composer and a successful singer later on !

I am telling all this to emphasize that actor-singers were first a necessity and later an utility, till playback took over. Today’s song is a song sung by Raj kapoor (14.12.1924 to 2.6.1988), when he was just 21 year old budding actor in his father’s Drama Company.

Prithvi Theatre was founded in 1942, by Prithviraj Kapoor, as a travelling troupe with 150 members, which staged productions across India. Its maiden performance was Kalidasa’s classic “Shakuntala”. In subsequent years the theatre staged more than 2,600 plays such as “Deewar” (Wall), “Pathan” (a community comprising Hindus and Muslims of North India), “Ghaddar” (Traitor), “Aahuthi” (Offering), “Kalaakar” (Artist), “Paisa” (Money) and “Kisaan” (Farmer). Prithviraj starred as the lead actor in every show. His work in the Indian film industry funded the activities of the company .

Prithviraj Kapoor’s dream was to have a permanent place for his theatre company. In 1962 he managed to lease a plot of land in Juhu on which to create a theatre space. Unfortunately his ill-health and subsequent death in 1972 delayed his dream turning into reality. The year he died the lease on the land expired and was offered on sale to his family. Shashi Kapoor and his wife Jennifer decided to make Prithviraj’s dream a reality by buying the land, and setting up the ‘Shri Prithviraj Kapoor Memorial Trust & Research Foundation’ in his memory with the intention of building a space to promote Hindi theatre and the performing arts.

Prithvi Theatre was inaugurated on 5 November 1978 in Mumbai. “Udhwastha Dharmashala”, written by G P Deshpande, staged by Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri and Benjamin Gilani was Prithvi’s first play. This was followed by a play by the Indian People’s Theatre Association (IPTA), a political satire, “Bakri”, directed by actor-director M. S. Sathyu.

Music had a dominating influence on Raj Kapoor. As Prithviraj’ s son, he had an opportunity to come close to K L Saigal and the master composer Rai Chand Boral, when Prithviraj worked in New Theatres.. Even while in Bombay, Saigal was his neighbour at College Street in Matunga.

His ambition to be a filmmaker did not allow Raj Kapoor to pursue his passion for music, though he did learn its rudiments from Pt Jagannath Prasad who was closely associated with Khemchand Prakash and K L Saigal and also taught music to Premnath, Mukesh and the members of the Kapoor clan.While visualising a song situation Raj Kapoor showed remarkable judgement in selecting the right tunes. He never hesitated to adapt tunes (such as ‘Is libe dis, I love you’ and ‘Dost dost na raha’, both in ‘Sangam’) which had appealed to him, without worrying about the sources from where they came.

If Raj Kapoor had not been a filmmaker he would have been an excellent composer and a good singer as well. He proved his ability as a singer early in his career, when he sang ‘Hum babu naye nirale hain'(Music: Ram Ganguli/N 2666 1) in Prithvi Theaters’ stage-play ‘ ‘Deevar ‘. He displayed an admirable sense of rhythm and melody in the song. With a little more effort he could have been a successful singer.
He also sang in ‘Chitod Vijay’ (1947/S D Burman)’Jail Yatra’ (1947, Ninu Majumdar),’Dil Ki Rani'(1947/S D Burman),Neel Kamal'(1947/B Vasudeo) and ‘Gopinath'(1 948/Ninu Maiumdar/record not released).Eventually Raj preferred the sonorous voice of Mukesh from ‘Aag'(‘Zinda hoon is tarah ki ghame’/ 1948) to ‘ Mera Naam Joker’ (‘Jane kahan gaye woh din’/1970).

Raj Kapoor used to do all sorts of work in Prithvi Theatres. He acted in few dramas and even sang a song in the drama Deewar in 1945. The song became very popular and HMV took out a Gramophone record of the song. The song was written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak, who generally wrote all dialogues and songs of Prithvi dramas. For a long time this record was not available on YouTube. Last week, a kind soul, a generous Record Collector Syed Zafar Shah posted this song on RMIM and YT. When I complained to him that the song had too much disturbance, he very kindly sent me a cleaned and improved song on my personal Whatsapp account. He also uploaded it on YT. I sincerely thank Zafar Bhai for his generous posting of this and many other rare songs on YT for the music lovers. May God bless him. May his tribe increase !

Raj Kapoor understood music and was deeply involved in his film’s music. After Shankar-Jaikishan , Laxmikant Pyarelal pair came to him, but his interference was not acceptable to them and so they too parted. Raj Kapoor wanted not only a good composer but one who will listen to him and tolerate his interference in the music selection. With Ravindra Jain, it was accomplished. Anyway that is besides the point.

The song is very good and firmly establishes Raj Kapoor as one who understood music and as a good singer !
(I have used some information from Nalin Shah’s article on Raj Kapoor’s Music, in July 1988 issue of ” Playback and Fast Forward” issue, wiki, C Ramchandra’s Marathi autobiography and my notes)

Blog Day : 5011 Post No. : 16915 Movie Count : 4593

Today’s song is from the ‘1981’ movie ‘Meri Aaawaaz Suno’.

This movie was passed by Censor Board with ‘A’ certificate, so people of my age then (I was around 13 years old) were not eligible to watch this movie during its first run.
However, I remember that our seniors used to discuss this movie and the brutal violence shown in it. What I vaguely remember about this movie is that Jeetendra plays a double role – one of dreaded murderer and one of a sincere and dedicated police officer. I think the music of this film was also overall good. I carried the memory of a couple of songs from this movie. I am presenting one of them today.

I did not remember the other songs of this movie. While preparatiing of this post I visited other songs and found one more song that was familiar to me.

Today’s song has a catchy tune and foot tapping music. Jeetendra and Parveen Babi perform on screen on this song.

Today 7th April’2022 is the eightieth birthday of Jeetendra (born on 07.04.1942). He was a major lead actor in the movies of ‘seventies’ and continued to shine in the ‘eighties’ too. Today he will be celebrating his 81st birthday. On this occasion, we wish him a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

Parveen Babi the actress in this song (04th April’1954 – 20th January’2005) had her birthday falling on 04th April. She would have turned sixty-eight on that day. She wore her usual ‘Parveen Babi looks’ 🙂 in this song and looks ‘gorgeous’. This picturisation brings back memories of her other movies from the ‘seventies’ and ‘eighties’ too.

Coming back to today’s movie ‘Meri Aaawaaz Suno’ was directed by S.V. Rajendra Singh for ‘Padmalaya Films, Madras’. It was produced by G.A. Sheshgiri Rao.

Story of this movie was written by H.K. Ananta Rao. S.V. Rajendra Singh also wrote this movie and screenplay of this movie.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Kader Khan. Editing of this movie was done by K. Gopala Rao.

The star cast of this movie included Jeetendra, Hema Malini, Parveen Babi, Ranjeet, Vijay Arora, Kader Khan, Om Shivpuri, Shakti Kapoor, Tamanna, Urmila Bhatt, Asrani, Pinchoo Kapoor, Raj Mehra, Rajan Haksar, Manmohan Krishan and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.11.1981. It seems that this movie was released in the theatres in Dec’1981, or later than that.

This movie had five songs written by Anand Bakshi which were composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Here is the list of songs of this movie :-

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Haay kya soch rahi ho … Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
02 O tumhe dekha hai to aisa lagta hai Asha Bhonsle
03 Achchaa hua tum mil gaye Asha Bhonsle
04 Gudiya re gudiya re, tu batlaa meri gudiya kaisi hogi (two versions) Asha Bhonsle
05 Mehmaanon ko salaam hai mera, he he Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is lip-synced by Jeetendra and Parveen Babi. Ranjeet, Raj Mehra, Rajan Haksar (hope I am correct), Pinchoo Kapoor, Kader Khan and others are also present among the audience in the song.

With this song, ‘Meri Aawaaz Suno-1981’ makes its debut on the blog.

Let us now enjoy this song.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 37
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 26 March 2012) saw five songs from five different movies covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5696 Raam duhaayi hai raam duhaayi hai Neki Aur Badi (1949) 8 songs covered by now out of 10
5697 Jab tak duniya rahi rahegi Ye Dil Kisko Doon (1963) 6 songs covered by now out of 10
5698 Lo ek kali muskaayi Ek Kali Muskaayi(1968) Movie YIPPEED by now
5699 Aaye ho to dekh lo duniya zara Chiraag Kahaan Roshni Kahaan(1959) Movie YIPPEED by now
5700 Kehne waale tu bhi keh le Qawwali Ki Raat(1964) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can see that three movies (out of five) whose songs were covered ten years ago have since been YIPPEED by now.

That leaves us with two movies that are eligible for Blog Ten years Challenge.

“Ye Dil Kisko Doon”(1963) is one of the two movies that are still unYIPPEED.

“Ye Dil Kisko Doon”(1963) was directed by Kanak Mishra for Bindu Kala Mandir, Bombay. The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Ragini, Agha,Jayshree Gadkar, Jeevan, Sajjan, Asit Sen etc. in it.

“Ye Dil Kisko Doon”(1963) had 10 songs in it. Six songs have been covered so far.

As Blog Ten Year Challenge, here is another song from “Ye Dil Kisho Doon”(1963). This song is the title song of the movie. It is sung by Rafi. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Iqbal Qureshi. The song is picturised on Shashi Kapoor. The person with the trumpet could be dance directed Herman Benjamin, as guessed by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Time for a yearly roundup!!!! 2021 coming to a close. 2022 just a sunrise away. Hope we have different experiences in 2022, experiences that make us glad and bring a smile to our lips which stays the whole year.

I am sure Atulji or Sudhirji or one of the other blog-contributors, who have the patience to go through the statistics etc., will give us a table of how many new movies debuted on the blog in 2021, and other related info about which date saw how many posts etc. But the best that happened this year, IMO, is the series that Atulji undertook to enlist all the movies, music directors etc that Lata Mangeshkar was associated with in her looonnngg career.

On the way out of 2021 here is a song from the 1993 release “Shatranj”. A movie that I saw at the time of its release on cable TV, before the Satellite TV Tsunami hit us. It was produced by Arun S. Thakur, directed by Aziz Sejawal, had music by Anand Milind, and Sameer was the lyricist. S P Balasubramaniam, Abhijeet, Udit Narayan, Jolly Mukherjee, Kumar Sanu, Sudesh Bhonsle, Jayshree (popular as Bombay Jayshri in classical music circles), Poornima, Sadhana Sargam (i.e. all the good singers of the 90s) were used in the movie.

Kadar Khan was the dialogue writer of the movie which begins like “Chalti ka Naam Gaadi” (CKNG) which means we have three brothers -bachelors- who are reared by the eldest brother Dharamraj (Kadar Khan), the other two brothers being Dino and Dinky (Jackie and Mithun). The eldest brother has a problem with the female gender of the populace (like Ashok Kumar in CKNG), the other two don’t have any such issues and Renu & Radha (Divya Bharaati and Juhi Chawla) are their girl friends. Then there is a female called Rosie (Jamuna who appeared in a few films in the 80s and 90s, not much is known about her) who is shown to like the elder brother Dharamraj since childhood (Sarfaraz Khan, Kadar Khan’s own son played the younger Dharamraj). The reason for Dharamraj’s problem with females is shown as his step-mother who was nasty to him and his brothers as children.

The story has the necessary villain in the character of Prajapati (Kiran Kumar) the manager to the brothers’ father’s (Vikas Anand) business and also his killer. He is cheating the brothers’s step-mother and step-brother (Shakti Kapoor) and using their business as a front for his illegal activities (what else). The brothers have some misunderstandings with Dharamraj when Renu & Radha enter their lives, which get resolved; then the hard-feelings towards the step-family also is sorted out and the cause of all the problems in their lives (Prajapati) is brought to his logical end. And then “The End”.

Oh I forgot to mention a few more tributes that the movie paid to CKNG. CKNG had ‘Mohan Garage’ here the brothers have ‘Dharam Garage’. There was a ‘car’ in CKNG even this movie had a ‘car’ important to the story. CKNG begins with a song on the pet car, this one too begins with a song on the car. Additionally the brothers have a pet Monkey/ Chimpanzee. So let us have the movie debuting on the blog with the film-opening song that shows us the bonding between the brothers. This song is in the voices of SPB, Abhijeet and Udit Narayan.

There used to be a show called ‘Superhit Muqabla’ on Doordarshan Metro of those years (28 years back) which was on the lines of the legendary Binaca Geetmala. The show used to retire songs from the list of popular songs, which were complied based on vinyl records and cassette sales & and viewership of the show as such, after a 25 week run to make place for newer songs, very much like Binaca Geetmala. And songs of “Shatranj” (1993) were on this show for many weeks.

With this song we also say thank you to the entertainer Kadar Khan who left us today, in 2018, in Canada, where he was staying with his sons following his retirement from Bollywood. His last release was ‘Hogaya Dimaagh ka Dahi” in 2015 October (after a gap of seven years when ‘Mehbooba’ and ‘Deshdrohi’ released). He was a recipient of three Filmfare awards viz:

Best Dialogue for “Meri Awaz Suno” in 1982.

Best Comedian for “Baap Numbri Beta Dus Numbri” in 1991.

Best Dialogue (again) for “Angaar” in 1993.

He was conferred the Padma Shri, posthumously in 2019 by the Government of India.

He was 81 when he passed away.

Most Indians today know that Tiger is the national animal of India. But that was not the case when India became independent. Asiatic Lion (found in Geer forest in Gujarat), was declared as India’s national animal in 1948 by PM Jawaharlal Nehru in 1948, mainly because of lobbying by Gujrat Natural History Society.

But the number of lions was very small, whereas Tigers were found in as many as 16 states of India. On 18 november 1972, exactly 49 years ago, Royal Bengal Tiger was chosen as India’s national animal.

It is to be kept in mind that tigers found all over India are of the same species viz Royal Bengal tiger (Tigris panthera). If someone thinks that Royal Bengal Tigers are only found in Bengal and Bangladesh, and tigers in other parts of India are of different species , then that is not the case. The name Royal Bengal Tiger itself is a misnomer. Some British Official had first seen this animal in an area now falling in Central India – present day MP, Chhatisgarh, Maharashtra region- in other words in Mowgli country of Rudyard Kipling) and named it as Royal Bengal Tiger, because that region then fell under Bengal Presidency. It is to be noted that Bengal Presidency covered a vast region of India those days. It covered entire North East India, Present Bangladesh, Bangal, Bihar , Jharkhand, Orissa, Eastern UP, MP, Chhatisgarh, etc. Like the case then, even today most population of Royal Bengal tigers is found in the same Mowgli land.

Both Lions and tigers were facing extinction during 1970s. There were only 1827 tigers left in India in 1972. To save tigers from extinction, a tiger conservation programme called Project Tiger was started in April 1973 by Government of India. 27 tiger sanctuaries were created under this project. Today, the number of tigers in India is estimated to be around 2500-3500.

Today Bengal has a tiger population of under 100. Same is the case for Bangladesh. In contrast, MP, and Karnataka have over 500 tigers each while Uttarakhand has 400 plus and Maharashtra 300 plus. Tamilnadu has 200 plus. Kerala, UP, Assam have 100 plus tigers each. Overall, as many as nine different Indian states have more Royal Bengal Tigers than are found in Sundarban area of Bengal and Bangladesh. So personally I would like to describe this animal as Royal Indian Tiger that enjoys a pan Indian presence.

The population of these tigers have reduced in Bangladesh and Bengal (sundarban area), whereas their population has increased in other parts of India. So, I can only laugh when Bangladesh stakes claims on this animal. Like India, they too have Royal Bengal Tiger as their national animal. On another note, lions are used as their their national symbols by England as well as Sri Lanka, though none of these countries today have any lions left in their jungles.

To mark today’s date as the date when Tiger’s became the national animal of India, I was looking for a song where Tiger finds a mention, even if symbolically. I think I have found a rocking and rollicking song for the occasion. This song is from “Appu Raja”(1990), which was a dubbed version of the Original Tamil movie Apoorva Sagodharargal (1989).

This movie (both original as well as Hindi dubbed version) were produced by Kamal Haasan and directed by Singeetam Srinivasa Rao for Raaj Kamal Films International, Madras. The film had Kamal Haasan, Jaishankar, Nagesh, Gautami, Rupini, Manorama, Srividya, Janagaraj, Moulee, Delhi Ganesh, Nassar etc in it.

The movie was dubbed but songs in Hindi version were specially recorded, duly translating the Tamil lyrics into Hindi.

Here is the first song from “Appu Raja”(1990) to appear in the blog. This fantastic danc song is sung by S P Balasubrahmaniam and chorus. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ilayaraja. The picturisation shows wonderful dance performance by Kamal Hasan, Manorama (playin Kamal Hasan’s mother) and others.

On the occasion of adoption of Tiger as Indian national animal, here is a wondful dance song. I am told that this song has become a must play song at birthday parties in Maharashtra. This song is a fit song to dance, no doubt about that.

With this song, “Appu Raja”(1990) makes its debut in the blog.

Blog Day :

While we in this blog discuss songs, we also discuss other topics of common interest, like sports (mainly cricket), festivals, history, economy etc.

Tokyo Olympics concluded a few days back. As Indians, we had lots of sporting events to look forward to. Indians were participating in many events. Indians had pinned hopes of medals on quite a few of them, seeing that some of them were actually ranked world number 1, 2, 3 etc in their sports and they were given similar seedings too in the Olympics. But most of these sportspersons disappointed.

On the other hand, there were a few who performed beyond their rankings and managed to win medals. India won a medal (silver) on the very first day of the Olympics. First three medals were won by female athletes. Later, males too joined in winning medals.

Icing on the cake arrived on 7 August 2021, the last day of Olympics. The final medal that India won in these games happened to a track and field medal. It was the very first time that India won a track and field medal. And it turned out to be a GOLD medal, no less !

This gold medal event was in men’s javelin throw. Indians had never taken so much intetest in an atheletics event before this Olympics. I was one of those who followed the event closely. Since India actually won the gold, I dug deep and got all the relevant details of this competition. In this article, I present my findings, which is basically a description of How the Javelin Gold was won in Tokyo Olympics.

There were 32 javelin throwers in the competition. They were divided into two groups, viz Group A and group B, each consisting of 16 athletes.

In the qualification round, each javelin thrower was given three attempts in which to achieve the qualifying marks of 83. 5 meters. Based on the performances, 12 javelin throwers were to qualify for the finals.

In case less than 12 javelin throwers achieved the qualification mark, then the remaining slots were to be filled from those who had hurled the javelin the farthest among the non qualifiers.

Only six javelin throwers (three from group A and three from group B) were able to achieve direct qualification by throwing the javelin beyond 83.5 meters. Here are the details of these six direct qualifiers.

Gr A Gr B Overall qualification round rank
Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank
Neeraj Chopra (India) 1 (86.65 m) 86.65 m 1 1
J Vetter (Germany) 3 (82.04 m,82.08m, 85.64 m) 85.64 m 2 2
Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 2 (78.50 m, 85.16 m) 85.16 m 1 3
Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 3 (79.27, 78.96 m, 84.93 m) 84.93 m 2 4
L Etelatalo (Finland) 1 (84.50 m ) 84.50 m (SB) 3 5
Julian Weber (Germany) 1 ( 84.41 m) 84.41 m 3 6

Only six javelin throwers could gain direct qualifications. There were six more slots of finalists to be filled. Those six non qualifiers who threw the javelin the farthest were picked to fill the remaining slots. Following six javelin throwers thus gained indirect qualification for the final:-

Gr A Gr B Overall qualification round rank
Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank
A M Novac (Romania) 3 (83.27 m, 80.90 m, x) 83.27 m (SB) 4 7
V Vesely (Czech) 3 (x, 83.04 m, x) 83.04 m (SB) 5 8
Alaksei Katkavets (BLR) 3 (81.08 m, 81.73 m, 82.72 m) 82.72 m 4 9
Andrian Mardare (Moldova) 3 (80.69, 78.95 m, 82.70 m) 82.70 m 5 10
Pavel Mialeshka (BLR) 3 (x, 82.17m, 82.64 m ) 82.64 m 6 11
Kim Amb (Sweden) 3 (82.40 m, 79.87, x ) 82.40 m (SB) 7 12

Thus four javelin throwers from group A and two from group B gained indirect qualification for the final. Remaining 20 javelin throwers (9 from group A and 11 from group B ) were eliminated.

The qualifying mark of 83.50 m does not appear too daunting for the competitors on paper, seeing that the personal best throws of most competitors, including those who failed to qualify was well over 83.5 meters. Some of the non qualifiers in fact had hurled the spear well over 90 m in the past. Some of them were past Olympic medal winners and world champions as well. Those who failed to qualify for the final included Walcott Keshorn (Trinidad and Tobago)-2012 Olympics gold medalist (90.16 m personal best), Julius Yego (Kenya)- 2016 Olympics silver medalist (personal best of 92.72 m), Cheng Chao Tsun (Taipeh)- Asian record holder with 91.36 m throw, Peter Anderson (Grenada)-current world champion (personal best 87.31 m) etc.

But World class sports is played on the field and it depends on performance on the day. Past records and achievements count for little. It is the three throws in the qualifying competition that determine who goes ahead to the finals and who get eliminated. Only six javelin throwers gained direct qualification. The six javelin throwers sneaked in as indirect qualifiers. The last qualifier who qualified could only hurl the spear to a distance of 82.4 meters, more than one meter behind the qualification mark.

Indians were cautiously optimistic about the chances of Neeraj Chopra because his performance during the current season vis a vis the performance of other leading contenders suggested that he was a medal contender.

Many leading contenders were eliminated after the qualifying round. The biggest gold contender was J Vetter of Germany, who had a season’s best of 97. 76 meters achieved in July 2021. But he too was on the verge of elimination in the qualifying stage, before he survived by crossing the qualifying mark on his third and final throw. Neeraj Chopra of India gave Indians a pleasant surprise by easily qualifying on his very first throw, and that throw was the longest throw of the qualifying stage. Thus he qualified as number 1 qualifier among the 12 qualifiers for the final. Vetter qualified as number 2. Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem qualified at the third place, and Pakistanis suddenly found something to look forward to in the Tokyo Olympics.

The timings of sports telecast of Tokyo Olympics suited India perfectly. The telecast would beging early morning iST and would continue till late evening. Javelin throw finals were scheduled on Saturday 7 August 2021. Unlike the qualifiers, the finals were at night time. It was in the afternoon in India.

The rules for the finals were that all 12 throwers would be given three throws each. The first eight contenders after these three throws would get another three throws each. The throwers would then be ranked based on their best throws.

When the competition began, I took pen and paper and began to note down the throws of the participants. During the first three throws, the sequence of throwers was arbitrary (or so it seemed to me). The number 10 qualifier (Adrian Mardore) threw first followed by Neeraj Chopra (number 1 qualifier), then number 12 qualifier (Kim Amb) followed by number 7 (A M Novak) etc. The first three throws of the twelve throwers in the sequence in which they threw was noted down by me in a table like this :-

S No Thrower (Country) First throw (m) Second throw (m) Third throw (m) Best throw (m) Standing after three throws
1 Adrian Mardare (Moldova) 81.16 81.73 82.84 82.84 Eighth
2 Neeraj Chopra (India) 87.03 87.58 76.79 87.58 First
3 Kim Amb (Sweden) 77.22 78.31 79.69 79.69 Eleventh
4 A M Novac (Romania) 77.03 79.29 x 79.29 Twelfth
5 Vitazlav Vesely (Czech) 79.73 80.30 85.44 85.44 Second
6 Julian Weber (Germany) 85.30 77.90 78.00 85.30 Third
7 Lassi Etelataro (Finland) 78.43 76.59 83.28 83.28 Seventh
8 J Vetter (Germany) 82.52 x x 82.52 Ninth
9 Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 82.40 x 84.62 84.62 Fourth
10 Pavel Mialeshka (BLR) 82.28 79.35 78.13 82.28 Tenth
11 Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 83.98 x x 83.98 Fifth
12 Aliaskei Katkavets (BLR) 82.49 81.03 83.71 83.71 Sixth

After the first three throws, bottom four throwers were eliminated. J Vetter, the world record holder and the overwhelming favourite for the gold, had just one legal throw in his first attempt. That throw of 82.52 m kept him in the fourth position till the second round. But he fouled his third round and as many as five throwers threw longer than his 82.52 m in their third attempts. These five throwers advanced, and Vetter was relegated to the ninth position after third round. Thus he was among those four who were eliminated after round three. It was a big upset. The other three people who were eliminated threw lesser distances than what they had thrown during the qualifying stage, and their elimination was no surprise.

The remaining eight contenders then hurled three more throws in the ascending orders of their standing after three throws, viz the person eighth in the standing threw first and the person standing first threw last.

Here are the throws of the eight javelin throwers in the order in which they took their fourth, fifth and sixth attempts.

S No Thrower (Country) First throw (m) Second throw (m) Third throw (m) Fourth throw Fifth throw Sixth throw Best throw (m) Standing after six throws
1 Adrian Mardare (Moldova) 81.16 81.73 82.84 81.90 83.30 81.09 83.30 Seventh
2 Lassi Etelataro (Finland) 78.43 76.59 83.28 79.20 79.99 83.05 83.28 Eighth
3 Aliaskei Katkavets (BLR) 82.49 81.03 83.71 79.24 x x 83.71 Sixth
4 Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 83.98 x x 82.86 86.67 (SB) x 86.67 Second (SILVER)
5 Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 82.40 x 84.62 82.91 81.98 x 84.62 Fifth
6 Julian Weber (Germany) 85.30 77.90 78.00 83.10 85.15 75.72 85.30 Fourth
7 Vitazlav Vesely (Czech) 79.73 80.30 85.44 (SB) x 84.98 x 85.44 Third (BRONZE)
8 Neeraj Chopra (India) 87.03 87.58 76.79 x x 84.24 87.58 First (GOLD)

One can see that six out of eight throwers who were eligible for three additional throws failed to improve upon their best attempts achieved during the first three attempts. There were just two throwers who achieved their best during the fourth, fifth and sixth attempts. They climbed up the rankings and affected the rankings of those whom they overtook.

Adrian Mardore of Moldova, who was eighth after three throws achieved his best throw of 83.30 m in his fifth attempt. With this throw, which was 2 cm better than the best throw of seventh placed Lassi Etelataro of Norway, climbed up to seventh position, relegating Lassi Etelataro to the eighth position in the final standing.

The other thrower who gave his best during the final three throws changed the higher standings in a major way. Jakub Vadlejch of Czech republic had managed just one legal throw during his first three attempts, but that throw was far enough to keep him in top 8. In his fifth attempt, he hurled the javelin to a distance of 86.67 m. It was season’s best performance for him, just like his throw during the qualification stage was his season’s best. With this throw, he climbed upto the second position. Athletes, who were occupying second, third and fourth position were pushed one place down as a result. So, his compatriot Vitaly Vesely, who too had thrown his season’s best throw in the final, had to be content with the bronze. Julian Weber of Germany, who too had achieved season’s best throw in the final, was fourth. Arshad Nadeem of Pakistan, ended up fifth.

One can see that Neeraj Chopra of India led from the front and he was never threatened for the gold. It all sounds so easy with the benefit of hindsight, but it was obviously not as easy at it looks like. In a country known for missing opportunities, allowing opportunities to slip away, choking at the last moment etc, it was such a refreshing change to see an Indian performing like a seasoned pro, grabbing the contest by the scruff of its neck and not allowing others a sniff of a chance. He qualified for the final in just one throw, ending up at number one among all qualifiers. In the final, his first two throws were longer than the throws of all other competitors and so he had sealed his gold in his first two throws itself. It looks so easy if you have a talented sportsman representing you. In reality, it was the very first time that an Indian was winning a Track and Field medal in an Olympics.

Indians would have settled for medal of any hue, even bronze, as their first track and field atheletics medal. The fact that it was a gold has immense significance. European nations keep winning track and field golds, and that changes nothing, but a solitary track and field Gold won by an India will change the fate of atheletics in India, and elsewhere. Let us not forget, even today India is world’s fifth biggest economy. If Indians take to atheletics with the same vengeance with which they take to cricket, then atheletics worldwide will get more popular than what it already is because one sixth of world population lives in India. We have already seen what happened to cricket in India (and worldwide) when India won ODI world cup in 1983, and later T20 World cup in 2007. I can foresee a situation when an atheletics revolution will take place in India in near future.

Those who think that this medal is one off and the normal service will resume after that, I disagree. THis event has changed Indian sports for ever. I can cite an Indian example to prove my point. India was a very weak chess playing nation till 1970s, that too when Chess was a game that originated in India. It was belived that Indians can never become chess grandmasters. It was in 1988 that India had her first chess grandmaster (Vishwanathan Anand). This event popularised chess in India as never before. Vishwanathan Anand went on to become five times world champion, and India today had 69 grand masters in chess. Chess too has an Olympics, called Chess Olympiad, played every two years. How many of us know that India at present is joint world champion in Chess Olympiad (with Russia)! All this had happened in a matter of three decades. I see a similar thing happening in Athletics. Indian economy and market can easily support and sponsor this forthcoming athletics revolution in India.

If one looks at the medal tally of various nations in Olympics, one will find that the medal tally in a way is a refection on the economic development of a nation. The top ten nations in the medal tally are major economies. Most are high income nations and others are just one rung below, viz Middle income group nations. Sporting prowess in a way has some definite correlation with HDI (Human development Index) of a country. There are some notable exceptions (viz some African nations), but otherwise economical development leads to overall betterment in sporting achievements. Hopefully, India too will join the ranks of top medal winners two to three decades from now, like how India has already become a top chess playing nation, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Russia, USA and other chess superpowers.

What is the medal tally that India achieved in Tokyo Olympics ? One gold, two silvers, four bronze. One two ka four, four two ka one. Hindi movie “Ram Lakhan” had already created a song for this occasion, as far back as in 1989, when Vishwanathan Anand was India’s sole chess grandmaster !

Here is this popular song of its time. It is sung by Md Aziz, Anuradha Paudwal, Nitin Mukesh and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. It is picturised on Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff and others as a dance song.

Hullo Atuldom

Choosing a song for today’s post was not so easy. We are celebrating our beloved Kishore Kumar’s 92nd birthday and seem to have run out of all popular songs. Songs that are played on the repeat on music channels and FM radio are not for us. We, a tribe that is called Atulites, living in Atulsongaday.me kingdom (Atuldom for short) are not satisfied with oft-repeated songs.

Not that we don’t love a ‘jeewan ke safar mein raahi’; ‘zindagi ke safar mein’; ‘zindagi ka safar’ or ‘zindagi ek safar’ (some songs that say ‘life is a journey’) as much as ‘munna bada pyaara’; ‘chanda o chanda’; ‘soyi ja taara’; or ‘aa ri aa jaa’ and ‘ankhiyon mein chhote chhote sapne sajaay ke’. Atulites also savor ‘ye raatein ye mausam nadi ka kinaara’ along with ‘main hoon jhum jhum jhum jhum jhumroo’.

There are some Atulites for whom the Kishore Kumar era began with ‘mere sapnon ki rani’ and the songs of ‘Padosan’ and all songs of Rajesh Khanna movies of the ’70s (like yours truly).

There are other Atulites who have seen the growth of this actor/singer/composer/ lyricist/ producer/ director from the ’40s. He was a K L Saigal fan (and from what I have read at various places, most singers of that period were Saigal fans) and his first song in Bollywood “marne ki duaayen kyun mangoon” has a rather “Saigal feel” to it. That didn’t stop him from ‘yodelling’ once he discovered that aspect of singing, inspired by Jimmie Rodgers and Tex Morton.

He was equally comfortable singing ‘aake seedhi lagi dil pe jaise katariya’ and ‘mere naina saawan bhadon’. Singing madcap songs like ‘ek chatur naar’ and ‘rafta rafta dekho aankh meri ladi hai’ was as natural as ‘panthhi hoon mein uss path ka’ and ‘aa chal ke tujhe main leke chaloon’.

I am sure any follower of the blog will say ‘there she goes on her worship Kishore Kumar journey’. But that is the male sound I heard maximum in my growing up years. Of course he came to that level after a long and arduous struggle.

He was mentored by SD Burman in his initial years of singing in movies after he got a break in ‘Ziddi’ under Khemchand Prakash’s music direction. Salil Chaudhary, OP Nayyar, Kalyanji Anandji, C. Ramachandra, Madan Mohan and all the music directors of that period have songs of Kishore Kumar that are still in public memory. That doesn’t mean he didn’t sing for the next generation of music directors. Can’t forget ‘inteha ho gayi intezaar ki’ – Bappi Lahiri, ‘Kya mausam hai’ -Rajesh Roshan, ‘tera chehera mujhe gulaab lage’- Anu Malik (oh yes! he has sung for Anu Malik too); and the biggest of the next generation music directors – R D Burman and Laxmi-Pyare- we cannot even list all the wonderful songs that he had sung under their music direction.

He has duets with male as well as female singers and also multi-singer songs best example of multi-singer song being Hum ko tumse ho gaya hai pyaar kya karen.

But why did I write ‘we have run out of popular songs’. Out of a possible 2709 songs (that the blog’s stats page says that we have of Kishore Kumar in Bollywood), 1245 have been posted in the blog. Of these 577 are solo songs of Kishore Kumar. That leaves us with 1464 songs to choose from. If I think of songs from the ’70s, we have many non- Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan songs to choose from which were regularly played on Vividh Bharati.

Seeing Randhir Kapoor on Indian Idol over the weekend reminded me of today’s song.
This post from last year gives the story of “Lafange” (1975) in brief. Today’s song helps to establish the character of Gopal played by Randhir Kapoor. It shows how heroes, who play con-men in movies, have gold-plated conscience. They rob the haves and help the have-nots. All heroes are Robinhoods when they play con-men and undergo a character change when they fall in love with the beautiful heroines. Predictable, correct?

Missing singer/actor/producer/director/ composer Kishoreda on his birth anniversary.

Hullo Atuldom

“Ham Paanch” was a movie that released towards the end of 1980. It was presented by S K Films Enterprises and was produced by Surinder Kapoor having Boney Kapoor as executive producer. It was directed by Sattiraju Lakshmi Narayana known professionally as Bapu. It had a huge star cast headed by Sanjeev Kumar, Shabana Azmi, Deepti Naval, Amrish Puri, Naseeruddin Shah, Mithun Chakravarthy, Raj Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Uday Chandra, Aruna Irani, Dulari, Gita Siddharth, Roopesh Kumar, A K Hangal and Kanhaiyalal along with a whole set of known faces that constitute the firmament of Bollywood’s supporting actors.

The movie was a remake of the 1978 Kannada film “Paduvaaralli Pandavaru” which in itself was an adaptation of the Mahabharata. It had music by Laxmi-Pyare and songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Playback singers used were also the gems of Bollywood: – Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Shailendra Singh, Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, Anwar and Usha Uthup.

The movie had around 8 songs and made its debut on the blog with this song/ post by Sudhirji in 2016. Its been 5 years since that post and it is high time we have another song, unfortunately I have found links to audios of all the songs. But I have seen these songs and movies eons back and so I can tell that today’s song is being lip synced by Naseer, Mithun, Raj Babbar, Gulshan Grover and Uday Chandra (playback was by Amit Kumar, Shailendra Singh, Anwar and Suresh Wadkar). It has these youngsters protesting the tyrannical ways of the local Zamindar (Amrish Puri) who is helped in his mission of ruling the small region in rural India by his munim (Kanhaiyalal in one of his brilliant acts as Munim). The youngsters are guided in their job by Sanjeev Kumar playing Krishna who incidentally happens to be the brother of the Zamindar. I remember that the little sounds that are off-beat in the song (Amit Kumar’s voice) were lip synced by Mithun. How I wish we had the video, my personal recommendation would be to see the movie to enjoy the full essence of the songs and see actors like Gulshan Grover and Raj Babbar in ‘hatke’ (different) avatars.

We are having this song today to wish Raj Babbar on his 69th birthday; my initial reaction when I discovered his age was “Oh! Is he that old!!!” Next was almost all the actors who played ‘paandavs’ in “Ham Paanch” are in the same age bracket and this man, along with Gulshan Grover I suppose, are the youngest. Raj Babbar, who was born in Agra- UP, made his way to movies through NSD. He was first hated for the character that he played in B R Chopra’s ‘Insaaf Ka Tarazu’ in 1980 which released around the same time as ‘Ham Paanch’. Prior to that he had appeared in ‘Kissa Kursi kaa’.

He had around 7 releases in 1980 with ‘Aap Toh Aise Na the’; Insaaf Ka Tarazu’; ‘Sau Din Saas Ke’ and ‘Ham Paanch’ still being in public memory. He has appeared in a few Punjabi movies too. He is an actor who has played all kinds of characters- positive, negative and grey too. Sometime in the ’90s he switched to playing fatherly characters which could be negative too. He was a three-time member of the Lok Sabha and two-time member of the Rajya Sabha. His children Juhi and Arya from his wife Nadira and Prateik from Smita Patil (to whom he was married till her death due to complications in child-birth) are all actors. He has also produced a few movies.

If we had the video of the songs of this movie we would have also been able to the see the fantastic-large eyed-baritone voiced Amrish Puri in what he was excellent in that period. He would have turned 89 on 22nd June had he been around.

Here is wishing Raj Babbar health and happiness and thank you for entertaining us for close to 45 years.
Editor’s note:- With this song, Laxmikant Pyarelal now have 900 songs in the blog as music directors.

Hullo Atuldom

“Sangeet” (1992) is a movie I have seen in parts on satellite television, don’t remember if I have seen the whole of it. Whatever I have seen has stayed with me and here is synopsis of the movie:

(1) Madhuri Dixit played a double role of mother-daughter. This, at a time when she was a glamour doll in other movies, Madhuri had a de-glamourised look as both mother and daughter. (2) Madhuri, as the daughter, was a blind girl staying in a under-construction building with Jackie Shroff as her neighbour. (3) Even Jackie had a role different from what he was playing in those days i.e. he was an out of work folk artist who has come to the big city in search of a appreciative audience. (4) Shafi Inamdaar played a wealthy man who marries the mother-Madhuri and Nitish Bharadwaj was her lover who she couldn’t marry. (5) Satish Shah played a music composer who has no qualms about hijacking other people’s tune and passing it off as his own. As per imbd.com it is the story of a blind orphan girl who has dreams of being a successful singer and reaches her goal with the help of another street singer and in the process discovers her parents too.

This was possibly the only Hindi movie which K. Viswanath directed, which was not a remake of his own Telugu hits. And in Madhuri he had a competent performer who did justice to both the roles, this was one of her underrated movies. Possibly the Hindi audience didn’t take too well to the story and the movie bombed. But both the lead actors had ‘hatke’ roles (an oft-repeated phrase among film makers). The melodies were the doing of Anand- Milind and Santosh Anand was the lyricist. Anuradha Paudwal, Suresh Wadkar, Pankaj Udhas, Jolly Mukherjee etc were the playback singers. Today’s song has Jolly Mukherjee giving his voice for Jackie Shroff.

Madhuri Dixit and Jackie have acted together in about 12 movies but this is one jodi that doesn’t come to the notice of Hindi film fans. They have been lovers, friends, bhabhi-devar, brother-sister (I am sure no one remembers that in “Tridev” they played siblings) etc. They have been good friends all through the years as is evident from the various times they have come together on TV and videos available on the internet.

Today we are having a song to wish Jaikishan Kakubhai Shroff a.k.a Jackie Shroff on his 64th birthday. He has been in the industry for close to 40 years beginning his journey as the villain’s henchman in a Dev Anand movie- he played Shakti Kapoor’s chamcha in Dev Anand’s “Swami Dada”. He is forever indebted to Subhash Ghai and has gone on record to say that he is ready to stand-in for the props in his movie if Subhash Ghai even mentions it. This is evident from the characters he has played in Ghai’s movies- father of Kareena Kapoor and his sisters, a guest appearance in “Saudagar”, a tiny role in “Trimurti”- I can go on quoting Shubash Ghai movies starring Jaggu Dada as he is fondly addressed in the industry. His journey into the filmworld was through the modelling world. He is the father of Tiger (Jai Hemant) Shroff the current heart-throb of the youngsters. Jackie Shroff is one of the actors of the ’80s whose movies I love to see the others being Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol, and Govinda.
