Happy Children’s Day to Atuldom

“Makdee” means spider. This was also the title of a movie in 2002 which was directed by Vishal Bharadwaj who was also the music director. This was one of the movies in recent times that portrayed children the way they actually should be – as bright, intelligent, naughty and playful. I am put-off when children are portrayed as miniature adults and made to mouth huge sentimental dialogues which I am 100% sure kids from normal upbringing would not even dream of. My definition of kids from a normal upbringing is where the only thing that a child has to do is finish their school, come home -play in the ground or backyard, do their studies for the next day, help around the family as per necessity, play mischief and be active through the day so that they sleep peacefully and wake up fresh to have their routines all over again. In between all this they should have time to read comics, novels, have memorable time with their grandparents and friends which will stay with them for their life as pleasant memories. ‘Makdee’ was one such movie.

It had Shweta Prasad play 10-year-old twin sisters – Chunni and Munni. Chunni who was a prankster and Munni the timid, studious kind. Chunni keeps fooling around the village and constantly gets into trouble with the local butcher Kallu along with her friend ‘Mughal-e-azam’ and on one occasion Kallu chases them around the village and in the melee Munni runs into a mansion which is famous around the village as to being haunted. Then what follows is Chunni’s struggle to find her sister, save her from the clutches of the witch who resides in the haunted mansion, and in the process solve the case of all the persons from the village, who went missing, when they ventured into the mansion. She also is felicitated by the collector of the district as she finds the reason for the witch (Shabana Azmi) making the mansion her home- a hidden treasure.

‘Makdee’ had all the elements that would was needed in a children’s film- fun/ fantasy and a moral – which is the essential of any story telling session with kids. The moral being that “you cannot cry wolf always, as a time will come when people will stop believing you.”

14th November is celebrated as children’s day in India in memory of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. He was fondly called chacha Nehru and it is said that he was fond of children. I remember my father used to tell me about his school trip to Delhi when he was in class 8 or 9 and they were fortunate to have an audience with the then Prime Minister Pandit Nehru and what an experience it was – today’s youngsters would use the word AWESOME. My father was also proud about nearly sharing birth dates- his birthdate was 15th November. In fact, he used to say that it was not difficult to remember chacha Nehru’s death anniversary as that was the date he landed in Mumbai from Ahmedabad for his job and found all available forms of transport had stopped as a mark of respect to the departed leader. But that is not the purpose of this post.

Let us move on and enjoy this lively song which shows the exact emotion a child will have when it is a holiday from school or vacation or there is an unexpected holiday declared due to rains, bharat bandh, or death of some trustee or anyone remotely important. Here I will confess that I see myself as Chunni, Munni, Mughal-e-azam and all the kids in this movie. I identified with them.

Missing Films of 1960s – 32
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

At the beginning of this month, June 1st, I had a personal reminder to myself – passing away anniversary of Khwaja Ahmed Abbas. I was wanting to do a brief remembrance post. Other “things” intervened and the day came and went. Then, it so happened that on the 15th June, there was a set of reminders and requests for the birth centenary celebrations of Sajjaad Husain. Not many “things” intervened that day, and I was able to locate a rare recording of a song from film ‘Dharam’ (1945), as yet unposted, and was able to post the remembrance article in good time. You may remember the title line of that song “Chali Pawan Purvaai, Chali Pawan”.

Today is world earth day. Google says so and has a special logo for it. On this occasion I thought that we can have an all time favourite though it is from a cartoon I am sure all of us enjoyed as little ones. Ok I admit in the 1990s most of us were not kids and our kids were infants. But I can safely say that all of us were fans of this song. It was written by The Gulzar – master of words when it came to songs for children; remember “Lakdi Ki Kaathi, Kaathi Pe Ghoda“? It was sung by Amol Sahdev who was a 10 year old back then. He is a trained singer who is himself now a father of a toddler. Vishal Bharadwaj was the music director.

Mukesh and his Composers – 3
———————————
The off-screen romance between Dev Anand and Suraiyya was well known. On-screen, if there was any song which symbolized the relationship it was this romantic duet from Vidya 1948 sung by Mukesh and Suraiyya.

Hold on. Mukesh giving playback for Dev Anand?. Well, yes, there were 3 occasions in which this rarity occurred. A solo and a duet in Vidya and a duet in Shair with Lata under Ghulam Mohammed.

Greetings to all as we celebrate today the 66th anniversary of independence of this nation. Over the years, we have enjoyed many songs, published on this blog and many not yet showcased here. Songs that celebrate the spirit of patriotism and nationalism, songs that celebrate the event of freedom for this nation on this day. The flavors and the moods of these songs vary a lot. From serious songs of nationalism, from songs that talk of struggles and martyrdom, from songs that exhort their audience to rise and protect, to the songs that celebrate the honor of this land and its people, to the songs that express joy of freedom, and songs that inspire hard work and nation building. So many poets have written such a variety of verses. Every Independene Day and Republic Day we post 6 to 8 songs, and yet there seems to be a treasure of such songs that is out there, still to be discovered.

“Ek Hi Raasta”(1956) was produced and directed by B R Chopra. As was his wont, this movie too was on a socially progressive theme of widow remarriage which was quite bold for the time and as a result it was a commercially risky proposition for the movie. But B R Chopra pulled it off and the movie became a commercial success and it was critically acclaimed too.
