hullo to all in Atuldom

Today 13th of October is a rather sad date for fans of Bollywood music. It was on this date in 1987 that we lost a gem of the industry to “KAAL”. Its 30 years already and we are yet to find an entertainer like him. We still don’t have a singer, actor (brilliant in comedy), composer, song-writer, and finally a producer-director like him. Our own Kishore Kumar.

Born in Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh, to Kunjalal Ganguly and Gauri Devi as brother to Ashok Kumar, Anoop Kumar and Sati Devi he was a fan of K.L.Saigal. On completing graduation Abhas Kumar (birthname)started his cinema career as chorus singer in Bombay Talkies where his brother Ashok Kumar worked. His first screen appearance was in Shikari (1946) in which his brother was the lead. So that started his acting career and with “Marne ki duayen kyun maangu” under the music baton of Khemchand Prakash in “Ziddi” (1948) his singing career took off. But why am I listing all that hear, these are all well known facts. So, I will just say MISSING YOU KISHOREDA.

13th October also happens to be the death anniversary of the eternal mother Nirupa Roy. My first memory of her is as mother to Amitabh and Shashi Kapoor in “Deewar” as a person who single-handedly brings up her two kids once her husband deserts the family. Next, I think her character in “Amar Akbar Anthony” stands out. But I know I have seen her as mother to Vinod Khanna (Aan Milo Sajna), Dharmendra (infinite times), Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna- do I need to list all her filmy children here? But just because I have seen her in motherly roles doesn’t mean she started off as a mother; she has also played a leading lady in the late 40s through the 50s to the 60s. she has played a goddess in many mythologicals and has had Trilok Kapoor, Ashok Kumar, Balraj Sahni, and Bharat Bhushan as her leading men.

Professor Pyarelal (1981) is a film directed by Brij, starring Dharmendra, Vinod Mehra, Nirupa Roy, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Amjad Khan, Zeenat Aman & Simi. It had music by Kalyanji Anandji and Rajinder Krishan was the lyricist.

With this song, which runs through the movie, in four parts, we remember both Kishore Kumar and Nirupa Roy.

Today(13 october 2017) is the 30th death anniversary of one of the greatest legends of the Hindi film industry, Kishore Kumar. On this day, the 13th of October 1987, he left this earthly world. He was just 58 then.

As with all legends, though they may be long gone, we are left with their legacy – to enjoy and to remember them with. Kishore Kumar is no different – his legacy is extremely rich, and he has millions of fans around the world who enjoy his songs every single day.

Here, on this blog, we remember him very fondly today on this death anniversary and thank him for enriching our lives to an extent and in a manner that’s hard to quantify or describe. Each of us just knows it in our heart.

So what can I write about Kishore Kumar that I haven’t already written here?

I’ve already written a lot about him on various posts – on his birth and death anniversaries.

Much of my previous writing here on Kishore Kumar relates to my own experience as a schoolboy in the 1970s, when he reigned supreme.

I’ve also written about how fond I am of his pre-1970s songs, although he was not THE numero uno male playback singer of the time. His songs from this period though are an absolute delight to listen to.

I’ve also written about the harfan maula that Kishore Kumar was. His best-known talent is, no doubt, his singing. But he was a popular comedy actor too in his time, with his own style of comedy. He also dabbled (successfully) in composing music. And, as if all of this were not enough, he directed and produced some films too. So yes, full marks for being a harfan maula .

Having discussed all this before, I do not wish to repeat myself, and bore the reader. 🙂

I would therefore like to dwell today on something else – Kishore Kumar, the person.

Obviously I’ve never met him myself, so anything I say about Kishore Kumar, the person, is necessarily gleaned from reports about him, or interviews with, or about, him.

By all accounts – and by that, I mean mainly his fellow artistes – Kishore Kumar was a fun person. Both Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle have spoken very fondly of him as being a prankster (in the nicest sense of the term), always up for some fun, cracking a joke, pulling someone’s leg, having a good laugh in general.

This is a quality I admire, because, as long as it does not interfere with work, it’s always fun to have fun-colleagues. Imagine being at work with sullen faces around you. 🙂 Life is too short to live without fun & sparkle in it – and I think Kishore Kumar understood this better than most. So not only did he practise it himself, he also spread this fun and sparkle wherever he went.

One has only to watch his live performance videos (some are thankfully available online) to see how full of energy and fun Kishore Kumar was. He was not just “singing”, he was fully “performing” for his audience. Clearly they were there to have a good time – and he was going to make sure he gave them what they wanted.

Another aspect of Kishore Kumar’s personality that I have read about is that he was particular about his fee. He didn’t want to be taken for a ride by anyone – and that’s only fair and professional. I’ve also read this about Jagjit Singh.

Contrary to what some might have made about the professional rivalry of Kishore Kumar and Rafisaab, they were good friends and had a lot of respect for each other. Amit Kumar talks about the time early in his career when his car once broke down. Rafisaab gave him a lift, dropped him off home, and went on. When Kishore Kumar got to know of this, he was upset with Amit Kumar for letting Rafisaab go, without bringing him home. Rafisaab too admired Kishore, acknowledging his popularity in the 1970s and encouraging him to give live performances. Professional rivalry apni jagah, but it does not have to come in the way of personal relationships.

Then there was the time in the late 70s (I think), when Kishore Kumar was reigning. Someone (I don’t know who) started a poll “Who’s the better singer – Kishore Kumar or Mohammad Rafi”. Given Kishore’s popularity at the time, presumably he was getting favourable winds in his direction. He was deeply embarrassed and requested that the poll be stopped.

Kishore Kumar seems to have managed to largely live life on his own terms. He had a few run-ins – when he refused to sing on Sanjay Gandhi’s orders at a Congress rally, his songs were banned for a while from being played on air during the Emergency. Apparently he had a misunderstanding later in his career with Amitabh Bachchan too, when the latter refused to do a guest role in a film produced by Kishore.

So it’s not as Kishore’s career was entirely controversy-free – but then, most celebrities’ careers rarely are. What’s more important is how their character stacks up during the controversy – and Kishore’s stacks up pretty well, in my opinion.

There’s a now-famous mid-80s interview of Kishore Kumar by Pritish Nandy. I think it was in the Illustrated Weekly of India. By then, Kishore had become reclusive – the interview gives an insight into his then-thought process. He had become fond of talking to plants – he explains why.

I remember being surprised to see the depth in Kishore Kumar’s “Door Ka Raahi” (1971) – a film produced and directed by him, and very different from the usual escapist fare of the time. For a person best-known for his comedy roles and fun character, this film revealed a different, thinking, side to Kishore’s personality.

All in all, Kishore Kumar was one of a kind. There’s a lot to admire about him – and I’m not talking just about his singing. We could certainly do with more Kishore Kumars today – but then they don’t make them like Kishore anymore, do they?

So today, as we pay tribute to Kishore Kumar, we thank him for being the person he was. And of course for all the wonderful songs he has given us. It just struck me – I haven’t mentioned even one. Bahut na-insaafi hai. 🙂

Anyway, coming to the song for today.

This is from Harjaee (1981).

I remember seeing this film at that time – haven’t seen it since. Contrary to the typical multi-starrer, masala films of the time, this film, starring Randhir Kapoor and Tina Munim, was a proper tear-jerker. From what I remember, Randhir Kapoor is a carefree, prankster type of guy who pretends to have cancer, just to get Tina Munim to fall for him. His parents too believes his story and get Tina to be sympathetic towards him. Then tragedy strikes. Randhir Kapoor gets really diagnosed with cancer. The rest of the story is how he copes with it, how Tina copes with it, how their respective families cope with it.

The film has some good songs – like many Randhir Kapoor films do. Whether his films did well or not, there used to invariably be at least one hit song (often more) in each of his films. I remember during my schooldays, I personally didn’t mind Randhir Kapoor films at all – though I was clearly much in the minority at the time. 🙂

The song is “kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain”. It is a sad, sensitive song picturised on Randhir as he reflects on his changed life, and wants to hold on to all that is precious to him.

I hope you like the song.


Song-Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain (Harjaayee)(1981) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Nida Fazli, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain
Kabhi lab pe shikaayat hai
Magar ae zindagi phir bhi
Mujhe tujh se mohabbat hai
Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain
Kabhi lab pe shikaayat hai
Magar ae zindagi phir bhi
Mujhe tujh se mohabbat hai
Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain

Jo aata hai wo jaata hai
Ye duniya aani jaani hai
Yahaan har shay musaafir hai
Safar mein zindagaani hai
Ujaalon ki zaroorat hai
Andhera meri kismat hai
Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain
Kabhi lab pe shikaayat hai
Magar ae zindagi phir bhi
Mujhe tujh se mohabbat hai

Zara ae zindagi dum le
Tera deedaar to kar loon
Kabhi dekha nahin jisko
Usey main pyaar to kar loon
Abhi se chhod ke mat jaa
Abhi teri zaroorat hai
Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain
Kabhi lab pe shikaayat hai
Magar ae zindagi phir bhi
Mujhe tujh se mohabbat hai

Koi anjaan sa chehra
Ubharta hai fizaaon mein
Ye kiski aahatein jaagin
Meri khaamosh raahon mein
Abhi ae maut mat aana
Mera bhi aana jannat hai
Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain
Kabhi lab pe shikaayat hai
Magar ae zindagi phir bhi
Mujhe tujh se mohabbat hai

The uncertainties of life, in some way, always gives us happy as well as sad moments and surprises as well. The journey of life keeps on going on and on still, like that only. . . We never know how things are going to happen around us and what ‘life’ has there in store for us with every new day coming.

***

When it was decided that I will have to go abroad for a job opportunity there, I was at Nagpur and my daughters were staying at Anand Gujarat for their studies. So, it was obvious that my wife will also shift to Anand with my daughters. Most of our relatives, from my side and my wife’s side were already in Nagpur, except that my mother is staying at Parli Vaijnath (Marathwada-Maharashtra) with one of my younger brother. And my youngest brother (we are three) is staying at Mundra Kachchh-Gujarat.

So, it was natural for me to try to meet all of them before I take up my journey abroad. Before leaving Nagpur I and my wife travelled to Parli Vaijnath to seek blessings of my Mother and Mother Goddess Tulja Bhawani at Tuljapur. After coming back, we meet my paternal relatives and my wife’s paternal relatives. Then we took journey from Nagpur to Anand, again by car (this time with a driver) en route to Akola – my birthplace – and our ancestral house there, where one of my Uncle and my Buaa ji were staying.

I thought it was all happening as ordained by God that I visit Akola and stay there one night before taking on this new journey in my life. That way I thought I will have blessings of my Grand Father and Grand Mother who had already left many years before for their heavenly abode. Well, I met my cousins and Buaa ji at Akola, as my Uncle there had already left for Nagpur for some urgent work.

***

Everything went well and I too settled down in Kenya for my job and soon after almost four and half months passed on peacefully it was time for me to visit home on account my first leave to attend the Ganpati Festival at home. While everything was planned in advance and it was also finalised that this time me and my family can only visit Mundra-Kachchh (our home, presently occupied by tenants) and finish the bank related works – change in address there etc. and after that may be a single day visit to Vadodara to meet few of known friends and well-wishers and if possible a visit to one of the ashram near Rajpipla where we have been visiting since 2007.

Of course, there was a lot ‘shopping’ also to be done for me, as well as for my fellow Indian friends staying with me in Nairobi. But then there is one more factor and that is the uncertainties of life. We never know what is going to happen next.

There was an unfortunate development between these days before my travel. My Uncle staying at Nagpur had to be admitted to Hospital initially for a seemingly mild heart attack which he survived and an operation was suggested to remove some blockages in veins. However, on detailed examination it was diagnosed that he will not be able to face the operation as his heart was ‘weak’ not in good health to cope up with the operation that was required.

He was in hospital for almost twenty days and he recovered too, but when he was about to be discharged he got another attack. And then slowly one by one his organs started failing. With only the heart working, now it was almost left to God. As days passed and the Ganpati festival was approaching all family members and relatives where worrying about that if we will be able to bring the God Ganpati to our home or not?

***

I reached Anand on the day of Ganesh Chaturthi on 25th August. It was already noon by then and immediately after reaching home we started the preparations for ‘Ganpati Sthapna’. My daughters were already in town to bring the Ganpati idol to our home. It was their turn this time to decide and bring the idol to home. The first day of Ganpati festival passed well, still all family members and relatives worrying about the deteriorating health condition of my Uncle admitted in the hospital.

Having settled at home after a gap of almost five months and have taken a rest after being in travel for almost nineteen hours, the next day was still in an anxiety mood for me. I was eager to take on the planned activities soon. As we finished the evening ‘aarti’ on the second day and I was just savouring the Prasad after performing prayers, the looming fear stroked and the news came of my Uncle passing away at Nagpur.

 

***

Why I am writing this post here is that other than being my Uncle and always friendly with me, he was a crazy music lover. While I do remember watching some movies with him (and I have mentioned that in one of my posts on the blog), there are some vague memories too of my childhood where I used to visit my grandparents in the summer vacations and where I can meet my uncles and watch movies. I also remember attending his marriage when I was in high school. As I grew up, there were always occasions of a family get together where we meet. Then he also got transferred to the same place my parents shifted i.e. Parli Vaijnath. When I got married in 1994 he was there actively taking part in all ceremonies.

Whenever I visited him music was an integral part of discussions and I used to check which new albums he has got in his collection. After I started working and started my own collection the discussions thereafter were mainly on which rare song/album he got in his collection and which one I was missing? He was a great fan of Rajendra Kumar (like my other uncles and aunts and my grandmother) but he was also a fan of Jeetendra. He liked Jeetendra’s musical hits very much. After his retirement he was really enjoying very much downloading songs from ‘Youtube’ and other sources.

When I told him about our blog and my contributions he was visiting the blog regularly, though he may not have commented on any posts. He had settled in Nagpur after retirement and when I shifted to Nagpur in 2015 I stayed with him before shifting my household from Guajrat. I and my wife used to visit regularly in between during our stay at Nagpur. The last time I meet him was in the morning of 9th March this year to seek his blessings.

***

Members on the ‘Atulites’ WhatsApp group may recall message of my travelling to Nagpur with my younger brother during my recent visit to India. The visit was for this purpose of meeting my aunt and cousins after the passing away of my Uncle. It was this train journey, filled with nostalgia and yet memories of the departed soul and thoughts of uncertainties of life. We could not attend his final rites given the time required to travel.

***

At Nagpur I got to know how tough it was for my uncle to be in the bed for so many days. It was not his nature. At home he was always doing some productive activity and busy in doing something or the other. When he had to spend those days in the ‘hospital’ he was always insisting to take him to home from the hospital and remove all those medical apparatuses that were attached to him for supporting his ill health. He would have never imagined this day in his life.

In the ICU he was restricted from doing many things as the discipline have to be maintained there. But how long you can keep one holding like that. One day he was found listening to songs and that too in a good volume which was enough to make the hospital staff rush to him and take away the mobile from him, to save the other patients from this musical entertainment.

Well that is one part. But, on the other part, as I was told later, it was very difficult for him to bear the pain and the difficulties in breathing. Each new day was coming to him with more pain and problems. So actually, he was requesting everybody to let him go home and rest peacefully. The problem of choked veins had not aggravated suddenly, but his came on over a period of time on account of continuous smoking (which he was advised to stop two years earlier).

***

We as a human being always enjoy, celebrate, and share happy moments with others. But nobody can share this ‘pain and sufferings’ of one who is going through it. He must have been going through this thought I guess.

Ro’oge tum to na royegi duniya
Na royegi duniya
Tere aansuon ko samajh na sakegi
Tere aansuon pe hansegi ye duniya

In today’s fast paced world, given the hard facts of life one really doesn’t gets time to stop moving. The ‘show’ needs to go on and one needs to be moving on. . . always. Even we the relatives, no doubt, some of us were there with him for all these days in his bedside in the hospital, but some of us like me were not there and could not even attend his final rites. And have to continue with our daily routine and even doing things that one should avoid doing in this period of grief.

Jagmagaate raho
Gungunaate raho
Zindagi mein sada
Muskuraate raho

Paying my tributes to him I present this song from the 1971 film ‘Kathputli’. This film was directed by Brij for the banner of ‘Dynamo International, Bombay’. The star cast includes Jeetendra, Mumtaz, Helen, Agha, Manmohan, Malika, Bhagwan, Asha Chandra, Leela Mishra, Pravin Pal, Kundan, Radheshyam, Dilip Dutt, Kumud Tripathi, Bhola, Rajrani, Ramlal, Fazlu, Naidu, Jerry, Bishan, Brij, Jalal Agha and Master Chiku. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.08.1971.

This movie has total eight songs, including one two version song. The songs are penned by Verma Malik (four songs), Indeevar (three songs), and Shadab (one song). Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd Rafi give their voices to the songs in this movie. One duet song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi – “Ek Baat Poochhoon” has been posted earlier on the blog (long back in 2012 😊).

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and written by Verma Malik. As mentioned above music for this song is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. I am not aware in what context this song is in the movie and I have not watched the movie too. However, this song is in my memory since I heard it on a cassette which HMV had brought as ‘A Tribute to the Legend – Kishore Kumar’ (if I am correct). This is a four-cassette set.

Whatever be the context of this song in the movie, the name of the movie does remind me of this dialogue from the movie ‘Anand’ (1970) – “. . . ham sab to rang manch ki kathputliyaan hai, jinki dor uparwaale ke haath mein bandhi huyi hai, kaun kab kaise utthega, ye koi nahin bataa sakta. . .  ha ha ha’

🙂

Enjoy the song now!!!

After a fairly long break, I’m writing a post for the blog today.

There’s no particular reason for this break – it is just one of those things. I go through these periods of high-frequency posting to nil-posting every now and then.

A cricketing analogy for this behaviour would be the equivalent of hitting 3 sixes and then playing out 3 maiden overs. A coach would frown at this inconsistency. 🙂

Fortunately, Atul, tough though he is on himself, is more forgiving. 🙂

I must also add here that a good deal of credit for this post today goes to Peevisie’s Mom. She has been a catalyst for it. We were just discussing upcoming birthdays a few days ago and she mentioned Dev Anand’s birthday coming up.

She said she had lyrics written down for a song but would be travelling during the time, so would probably not be able to do a write-up. I offered to step in and do it on her behalf. 🙂 After all this is Dev Anand – how can we possibly let the occasion go? 🙂

So here it is. A tribute to the one and only, evergreen, ever youthful, stylish, debonair star of Hindi cinema.

Dev Anand.

There are some names that are so firmly entrenched in Hindi cinema that it’s hard to imagine the industry without that person. It has not only to do with fame but also longevity.

Lata Mangeshkar is one name that comes to mind.

And Dev Anand is another.

He started his career in 1946 – and right till his death in 2011, he was acting in films. Now if that isn’t an amazingly long career, I don’t know what is.

During this period, a lot of changes took place around the world, in India, and in the industry.

The industry saw large-scale migration to Pakistan as a result of partition. It also saw changes in genres with time. From the often tragedy-based black-and-white storylines of the early 1950s, to the fun-filled, color films of the 1960s, liberally exploiting the outdoors. From there, to the loud and garish 1970s, to the “lost decade” 1980s, to the revival in the 1990s – and then the new-age in the new millennium noughties.

Yes, Hindi cinema went through all these changes, with time. Many came and went during this period – some adapting and managing to survive, others perishing with passage of time.

But one constant through all this was Dev Anand.

He not only survived through all this, he even rode the wave. So much so that his popularity seemed to be of a unique type – it was not associated with box-office success or failure of his films. (Some might say that was a good thing because his films from the mid-70s onwards are best not judged by box-office performance. 🙂 Just the fact that they were Dev Anand films attracted public attention).

To be fair to him, there were a few successes, like Des Pardes (1978). But there were also others, like Anand Aur Anand (launching his son Suniel Anand) that didn’t do well.

But like Dev Anand himself said in interviews, that didn’t matter to him. He was first and foremost a film-maker and his passion was to make films. That was all that mattered to him. Just the experience of making films gave him tremendous energy. Whether the film was a commercial success or not, he wasn’t too bothered about it.

That was probably one reason he always seemed full of energy. When you’re so passionate about doing something, you don’t think about your physical age. It becomes just a number. Amitabh Bachchan today seems to be of a similar mindset at the moment.

One thing I’d like to mention here though. By the time I started watching films and understanding them, Dev Anand was already being referred to as the “evergreen” hero. I think this already started with Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971), or at least soon after.

Definitely by the time of Heera Panna (1973), Amir Garib (1974) and Ishq Ishq Ishq (1974), the term “evergreen” was stuck with him. As if to suggest, he was a yesteryear star but “evergreen”.

I was just wondering that at the time of these films, being born in Sept 1923, he would have been hardly 50 or 51. The three big Khans today (all born in 1965) are already older. And yet, even as Salman, SRK and Aamir do romantic lead roles (and even action roles), I haven’t heard the tag “evergreen” used for them. They’re still seen as “current” heroes. 🙂 Matter of perception, I suppose, in these changed times.

Anyway, back to Dev Anand.

I will not discuss his filmography or even his life – it’s all out there in the public domain anyway. There’s nothing I can add on this. He was such a legend that his fans know a lot about his life and films.

I must say I am a big Dev Anand fan too. I’ve seen most of his films, especially upto the 1970s. During the 70s (“my decade”), I did miss a few of his films. Some, deliberately. 🙂 I couldn’t muster the courage to watch Amir Garib (1974) or Warrant (1975) when they were released. I’ve since seen Warrant, but not seen Amir Garib yet. Need to watch it one of these days.

But from earlier decades, I’ve seen even relatively less-known ones like Nirala (1950) and Aaram (1951). I’ll admit Madhubala was a major attraction to watch both these films, as was Sharaabi (1964). And though I didn’t exactly like any of these, Dev, with that puff hairstyle, and Madhubala, with that smile, were not the reason. Just that I found either the script boring, or the film painfully slow.

Later Dev’s hairstyle changed – but otherwise, he was the same Dev Anand, with that nodding head and twinkle in his eye.

I wouldn’t consider Dev a great actor (Ava is going to kill me!), but, to his credit, he was never boring. I could easily watch a Dev film for Dev alone. His mannerisms, although repetitive, never bothered me. On the contrary, I quite liked them. 🙂

So today, as I remember him on his birth anniversary, I have very warm regards for him.

I will move on to the song for today.

It is from Bullet (1976).

Now this is also a film that I’d avoided at the time.

But since I was posting this song, and I like to know the context of a song I’m posting, I decided to watch it today.

And I was very pleasantly surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed the film.

This is a Vijay Anand-directed film – and that alone is good reason for me to watch a film. I have very high regard for Vijay Anand as a director.

But I remember reading a review of the film at the time of its release – and it was very critical of Vijay Anand. It said he had completely lost his touch, and had best stop directing if he didn’t want to do further damage to his reputation. So, rather damning.

To be honest, yes, this isn’t classic Vijay Anand. Not by a long shot. If you compare with Nau Do Gyarah or Jewel Thief (also gangster-thriller films), this film comes up woefully short.

And yet, there’s a bit of vintage Goldie here and there, that warmed me to it. I wish there were more scenes – but I’ll take this much. I had low expectations from the film anyway – it ended up surpassing my expectations.

It is a fast-moving, pretty decent, plot based on a James Hadley Chase novel, Just Another Sucker.

I didn’t even know the film starred Parveen Babi, so that came as a very pleasant surprise. There’s Rakesh Roshan in it too, as an assistant cop to Dev Anand, who plays a Police Inspector.

The film, at the start, mentions that it celebrates 25 years of Navketan. That was good to see too.

The song for today is “chori chori chupke chupke tere mere bin” picturised on Dev Anand and newcomer Jyoti Bakshi. Peevisie’s Mom tells me, based on an Internet search, that she is the daughter of Arjun Bakshi, who acted opposite Shammi in Malhaar (1951).

In this scene, Jyoti Bakshi has given Dev Anand something powerful to consume, as an antidote for his headache. She consumes it herself too. The result is, both of them are having hallucinations of the weirdest sorts.

This song was fairly popular in its time – I remember my classmates singing it in school. The picturisation is pretty crazy – and, even by 1970s standards, is very OTT (over the top). That was the thing with Dev Anand in the 1970s. His films often had loud song picturisations.

Talking of songs, it struck me that most 1970s Dev Anand films invariably had at least one popular song – and would often be remembered for that one song. One can say this for Warrant, Bullet, Sahib Bahadur and Darling Darling, at least.

Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi, music by RD Burman.

Lyrics were sent to me by Peevisie’s Mom.

Hope you enjoy the song.

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

So, we are on that date of the year when we write a special post for a very special person. We have two posts by kids of the 70s who grew up listening to the works of this special person. For once I waited to see what these two are going to say before I pen my own thoughts. This is because I have come to realise that the three of us love the same things about this person- his multi talents- singing (first and foremost), comedy (acting), direction, music direction and he has also written a few songs. We are his fans and he was said to be a huge fan of K.L. Saigal. His aim was to sing like Saigal.

Less than a week ago, we were remembering the legend of legends amongst singers of the Hindi film industry, Mohammed Rafi, respectfully referred to by many as Rafisaab.

Today, we remember another legend of legends amongst singers – the one and only Kishore Kumar, fondly referred to by many as Kishoreda.

Today(4 august 2017) we remember ‘The Versatile Genius – Kishore Kumar’ on his birth anniversary (04th August 1929 – 13th October 1987). Had he been alive today he would have been celebrating his eighty-eighth birth anniversary.

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Let us have a fun song from the 1981, Shomu Mukherjee produced & directed “Fiffty Fiffty” (and this is how fifty is spelt in the title card) which was certified on 15/10/1981 and released on 13/11/1981. It starred Rajesh Khanna and Tina Munim with Om Shivpuri (Bihari), Purnima (Mrs. Thakur), Amarnath (Thakur Vijendra Singh who is killed by Mr. Bihari before the titles), IndraniMukerjee (Mrs. Bihari who becomes dumb due to Mr. Bihari), Jairaj, Anita Guha, Nazir Hussain, Johny Whisky, CS Dubey, Jankidas, Jagdeep, Mushtaq Merchant, Kader Khan and Ranjeet. Dialogues were by Kader Khan. Anand Bakshi wrote the songs and Laxmikant-Pyarelal were the music directors.

Today, the 18th of July 2017, is the 5th remembrance day of one of India’s most enigmatic and exasperating film stars. You don’t need to rack your brains too much to guess who I am talking about. It should be pretty obvious – is there anyone more loved, and at the same time, more derided than Rajesh Khanna, ever in the industry? A time was when he was worshipped by hundreds of thousands, and then a time came when the weight of the crown of being the self-styled superstar, became an annoying, nay, a highly dislike-able phenomenon.
