Hullo Atudom

“Main Khiladi Tu Anari” (1994) was a normal masala- action- emotion- comedy filled movie. It was directed by Sameer Malkan, produced by Champak Jain for Venus Records and Tapes. Dialogues were by Kadar Khan, story by Sachin Bhowmick, lyricists were Anwar Sagar, Maya Govind, Rahat Indori, Rani Malik, Zameer Kazmi and Hasrat Jaipuri. Anu Malik was the music director. It had Shilpa Shetty (in a double role) with Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Raageshwari, Shakti Kapoor, Beena, Mukesh Khanna, Shiva, Johnny Lever, and Kadar Khan in the cast. The movie was largely borrowed from the 1991 Hollywood movie ‘The Hard Way’ and some reviews of MKTA said (and I quote) ‘it was a notch above the original because of the presence of one of India’s biggest action stars, martial artist Akshay Kumar’; comparing his martial arts skills to Jean-Claude Van Damme and also praising his stunt work, and concluding that it “is a fun action-comedy” film. It was the second release in 1994 of the Akshay Kumar- Saif Ali Khan duo, the other one being ‘Yeh Dillagi’. It was also Akshay Kumar’s fourth success for 1994 others being ‘Mohra’, ‘Suhaag’ and ‘Elaan’ (all of them being multi-hero movies).

The story involves two brothers -Mukesh Khanna and Akshay Kumar; imaginatively called Arjun and Karan- who are cops. They have a sister – Raageshwari (Shivangi)- who is an ardent, crazy fan of movie star Deepak Kumar (Saif Ali Khan) Then there is the drug dealer- gangster Goli (Shakti Kapoor) whose mistress is the cabaret singer Mona (another unique name 🙂 ). Mona is pumped off by Goli’s henchman (Shiva) when Goli comes to know that she is going to testify against him, and in protecting Mona Inspector Arjun also is killed. Now Karan has only one objective- to book Goli and avenge his brother’s killing. He seeks the help of Basanti -a street dancer who is the replica of Mona (Shilpa Shetty). For this, he has Deepak Kumar masquerading as someone from China Town and transporting Basanti to Goli’s gang with the age-old explanation of Amnesia after falling on the rocks and injury to head etc. Then many things occur in the course of the movie reaching its climax. In between all this, Deepak Kumar falls in love with his fan and Karan’s sister Shivangi- after all she also needs to sing a song no?

For today’s post we are going to have the song that Deepak Kumar and Shivangi sing to proclaim their love; in the voices of Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik. This song is one that I have always liked. Only recently I discovered that this one is from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri: writer of the classics ‘ichak dana bichak dana’; ‘bhanwre ki gunjan hai mera dil’; ‘budtameez kaho ya kaho jaanwar’; ‘yaad kiya dil ne kahan ho tum’; ‘nain so nain naahi milao’; ‘Baat baat mein rootho na’— oh so many songs of his which I have been hearing, listening, humming, singing all along.

This lyricist who was a poet in Urdu and Hindi was a Filmfare award winner for ‘baharo phool barsaao mera mehboob aaya hai’ and ‘Zindagi ek safar hai suhana’ (my personal all time favorite and motto of life). Cannot resist mentioning the lines in ‘Zindagi ek safar hai suhana’: ‘hanste gaate jahaan se guzar, duniya ki tu parwaah na kar, muskuraate huye din bitaana, yahaan kal kyaa ho kisne jaana’.

Hasrat Jaipuri was born in Jaipur as Iqbal Hussain in 1922 (would this be his centenary year?) His education till middle school was in English medium and there after his maternal grandfather tutored him in Persian and Urdu. He began writing verses in his youth around the time when he fell in love with a neighbourhood girl named Radha. This has been the most widely talked-about anecdote in the entertainment industry and how this poem was used by Raj Kapoor in his 1964 film ‘Sangam’ as ‘yeh mera prem patra padhkar’.

As we can see from the above sample, from his long association with films (1949- 2004), it was a mixed-bag of songs, written by Hasrat Jaipuri, that are ever popular. Today, it is 23 years since his passing and we are remembering him with this song from MKTA which is making its debut.

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is a melody from the late ’90s. It is from “Dushman” (1998) which was produced by Pooja Bhatt & Mukesh Bhatt and directed by Tanuja Chandra. It was well received by the critics and masses. It had a cast of Kajol (in a double role) with Sanjay Dutt, Ashutosh Rana, Tanvi Azmi, Jas Arora, Pramod Moutho, Naresh Suri etc. Kunal Khemu played a 11 year-old helper of the blind ex-serviceman played by Sanjay Dutt. The movie had nine songs (two songs have two versions) penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by Uttam Singh.

It was the story of a pair of twins- Sonia and Naina, and a sadistic serial killer Gokul (Ashutosh Rana). Gokul rapes and kills Sonia (Kajol). Naina is shaken, and distraught and vows to avenge her death. In this she seeks the help of Suraj Singh Rathod (Sanjay Dutt), a blind military veteran. Naina (Kajol) trains under him and overcomes her fear of the serial killer. And in the process falls in love with the blind Suraj. Today’s song is a romantic duet sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kumar Sanu.

“Dushman” as a movie title was used in 1939, 1957, 1971, 1990 and 1998. The first three ‘Dushman’/s are already on the blog and Yyiippeeeed too.

Today we are having the 1998 “Dushman” making it’s debut on the blog on the occasion of Kajol turning a year younger.

The first post that the blog had to wish Kajol on her birthday was by Rajaji. He had posted a very melodious song from “Udhaar Ki Zindagi” (1994).

Kajol is one actress who is a “chip-off-the old-block” and has a lineage that has actors and filmmakers as grand parents (paternal and maternal) that starts with Sashadhar Mukherjee, and Shobana Samarth. Her mother Tanuja, aunt Nutan and cousins are all actors. Kajol herself is very versatile and has been awarded the Filmfare for best actress in a negative role for “Gupt” in 1997. She is also married into a Bollywood family-her husband is the actor/director/producer Ajay Devgan.

Here is wishing Kajol Happy Birthday and all the best in life and work.

We all are witnessing a once in a century pandemic that is taking a heavy toll of precious human lives. There is information overload on this topic. Much of the “information” that we are being bombarded with is not useful, and may even be harmful.

I have been observing all this. I have tried to figure out what is going on. I have tried to piece together useful information about this virus. Here I would present my take on this pandemic and how I think we should deal with the situation.

It seems that very few people actually have an idea how covid infection takes place and how it spreads. Awareness about how to protect oneself against this virus also seems low among people. The outcome of low awareness about this virus has led to disastrous consequences as we all have seen.

In a situation where most people are pressing the panic button and losing their heads, we need to take a calm look at things so that we know how to deal with this situation. I will try to keep it as simple and easy to understand as is possible.

covid 19 virus can be likened to a well trained terrorist group. It is trained and armed and indoctinated outside our borders. Then they are sent across the border to create terrorist acts within our border. Here terrorists are equivalent to covid 19 virus, whereas our country is like our body.

How do these terrorists cross the border ? If they find no security across the border, then they just sneak in unchallenged. If security is tight then they try to sneak in while their army resort to shelling across the border to divert the attention of our security forces. These terrorists then try to sneak in.

These terrorists, if they sneak in, try to create terror attacks wherever they can. If security is tight, then their attempts are foiled most of the time. If security is slack or the terrorists get local support then they are able to create serious damage.

If the terrorists are able to fan out inside the whole country then they can create terror attacks all over the country. All this happened in India with regularity not too far back. This is the most severe kind of terror attacks that India has seen.

With this background, that all Indians can readily identify with, I will try to explain how covid 19 virus acts in a similar way.

Covid 19 virus tries to gain entry into human body. It is a respiratory virus, so it can only enter our body through the external respiratory parts, viz nose and mouth, and also through eyes. So if our body is a country then nose and mouth and eyes are our border posts through which this virus tries to gain entry. When this virus was unknown, it had a free passage into the human body through nose and mouth of unsuspecting victims. When its existence became known then people began wearing masks. It is as if earlier the borders were unmanned but now they need tight security. Face masks are the border security force that that guard our entrances (nose and mouth).

If nose and mouth are guarded then still the virus may lurk in, seeking to enter when the guard is down, viz when the face mark is removed. People do remove face masks when they feel that there is no virus around. Virus lurks in the air, on the person, on clothes, exposed part of the body etc. If a person touches something (on his person or any object containing virus) and then touches his nose or mouth, this is the opening that the virus needed. It then enters the respiratory tract of the body. Now you know why there is so much stress on sanitising objects, hands etc. This also shows us what is the importance of six feet distance. If people stand far off, then the chances of virus getting transmitted from one person to another reduces considerably.

If despite all precautions, some virus enters the respiratory system, its quantity (viral load) will be low. If we are outright careless (no mask, no social distancing) then our respiratory system may receive a heavy viral load.

What happens when the virus manages to enter the respiratory system dodging the mask? It depends on the preparedness near the border.

Masks at the nose are like BSF who guard the border. If the terrorists cross the border, then they have to face the army, who are stationed near the border. In case of covid infection, the army that confronts the virus is known as body’ immunity system. It is basically white blood cells of blood. These WBC are the army soldiers to deal with the infiltrators. These WBCs are trained to tackle known viruses that they have tackled in the past. As soon as they come across a previously known virus, they are immediately able to mobilise anti bodies to tackle that virus. The antibodies can be readily and rapidly deployed. On the other hand, when a new virus, viz covid 19 virus enters about which the WBCs have no previous information, then WBCs take some time to get prepared. As WBCs gather more information about the new virus, they begin to create anti bodies to tackle the virus. But for a new virus, especially if a heavy viral load had entered the respiratory system, the WBCs response may turn out to be slow and inadequate. In the meanwhile the virus is able to do considerable damage to the respiratory system. By the time the WBCs begin to create antibodies, it may be too late.

So, If the viral load is less, then the virus is stopped there itself. If viral load is heavy and the person is not vaccinated then the virus may overwhelm the immunity system and enter further into the body, namely the lungs. Lungs are like the different states of the country. The terrorists have now spread throughout the country, and now they can wreak severe damage. The security in the interior of the country is in the hands of police, which is far too ill equipped to deal with such security threats than the army. Same is the case with the immunity system of the body, which is helpless if the virus gains access to the lungs.

Let us say that the person was already vaccinated. In that case, the immunity system was familiar with this virus. So as soon as the virus entered the respiratory system, the WBCs, being already aware about the nature of the virus, will be able to deploy antibodies immediately. So a vaccinated body is like a country with a strong well trained and well prepared army near the border. In that case most of the infiltrating virus would get neutralised there itself.

If the immunity is weak and person is not vaccinated, then the virus overwhelms the resistance at the entrance and invades the lungs. In that situation, the virus starts rapidly infecting the lungs that are unprotected and are now at their mercy. The virus damages the alveoli (tiny air sacs). The function of the alveolus is to transfer oxygen to the blood vessels. These blood vessels or capillaries carry the oxygen to the RBCs (Red blood cells). It is the RBCs that finally deliver the oxygen to all the internal organs in the body.

The virus works by damaging the wall and the lining of the alveolus and capillaries. The debris from the damage(exudate) , which is plasma protein accumulates on the alveolus wall and thickens the lining. As the walls’ thicken, the transfer of oxygen to the red blood cells is impaired. The thicker the wall gets, the more difficult it gets to transfer oxygen to the red blood cells, which causes difficulty in breathing as the body is running short of oxygen. And the lack of oxygen to the internal organs results in a deficit in the body and impairs the functioning of the organs. At this juncture, the body fights to increase oxygen intake.

And the first response of the body is to destroy the virus and prevent its replication, but if the individual has weaker immunity then the body is unable to stop the virus, and this aggravates the crisis.

As the air sacs are damaged, there is an influx of liquid which is mostly inflamed cells and protein and this fluid build-up leads to pneumonia. This further impairs the oxygen intake by the lungs and hinders the oxygen exchange. Due to the novelty of the Covid 19 strain, there is no immediate treatment to directly cure pneumonia in Covid 19 patients and they are mostly given supportive care.

There are some key indicators that the doctors use to judge the onset and severity of this severe condition called Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) in infected individuals:

(1)Hypoxia – Low oxygen levels in the blood, due to damage to the alveolus

(2)Breathing difficulties and shortness of breath

(3)Chest x-rays of the lungs exhibit an opaque and glassy look against the black background

(4)Worsening symptoms over the course of time, from the day of detection of the virus

Is there no hope if the virus reach the lungs ? There is ! And it is this fact which is the most important thing to understand about this virus. The ammunition of the virus gets exhausted in nine days and so the virus gets ineffective nine days after it enters the body. If the damage to the body can be kept as low as possible though medication and other means then after nine days the recovery process begins. So the patient must be kept alive for nine days. If it can be achieved then he or she will survive. Forget low damage, even patients who suffered over 80% damage to their lungs have survived !

Virus may have become ineffective but it may have taken a heavy toll on the lungs by that time. The patient must lie prone on his/ her tummy and try to clear the contents of the lungs by coughing them out. Coughed up exudate (phlegm) would be variously coloured when the infection is severe. After a few days the colour would keep changing, from catechu colour (most severe) to black color (less severe)and finally as the infection reduces, the phlegm would become white. Finally phlegm would stop.

As the phlegm comes out, space is created in the lung and that makes breathing easier. Patients who are hospitalised and they have oxygen fitted on them mistakenly believe that they only have to keep lying down passively without doing anything. Not taking any proactive action to clear up the phlegm in their lungs is a mistake because in that case the situation will keep getting worse because the oxygen being pumped into their lungs will have no place to go in the lungs. If oxygen cannot reach the lungs then naturally they cannot be sent to RBC and from there to various parts of the body, and that would lead to serious complications.

It is seen that not just patients, even medical practitioners are often not very helpful (mainly because of their lack of experience). For instance, when a patient goes for chest x ray or HRCT, the report just states the facts, without any expert and helpful comments. A typical (and actual) HRCT report stated- “CT severity score of -36/40”

What will a normal patient do on reading the above ! He/ she will most probably die of shock if not covid because it indicates that the damage to the lung is over 80 %. Fortunately, the above patient happened to be the sister of my wife. My wife told her sister that she did not have to worry. The virus had done all it could and now the lung condition was only going to improve. To make space in the lungs, she advised her sister to do exercises that would expel the phlegm (technical term for this substance is exudate) stuck in her lungs. My wife’s sister followed the advice scrupulously. There was noticeable improvement in her condition. After a couple of weeks, her scan showed perfectly clear lung condition !

It was not the first case where my wife helped save a life. Last year, her brother too had suffered from covid and he too had delayed getting himself checked and treated, leading to a lung condition that was even worse. Even there, correct and timely advice by my wife helped save the life of her brother.

In my wife’s opinion, Rohit Sardana, the news anchor faced a similar situation as faced by her brother and sister and he could have been saved if he had received correct medical advice of the kind that she gave to her brother and sister. In Rohit Sardana’s case, he was in home isolation and he was making good recovery and was feeling better. It was on the advice of some well meaning colleague that he got his HRCT done. The HRCT showed similar severity as in case of my sister in law. But Rohit Sardana did not have the advantage of a good doctor’s advice who would tell him that the worst was over for him. Looking at the severity of his lung report, he went into shock and got himself admitted to a hospital, where he died soon thereafter.

So, to summarise all the above discussion, it can be said that the best protection against covid 19 is a properly worn mask. Do all in your ability to ensure that the virus cannot enter your respiratory system. The virus can enter your respiratory system only through nose and mouth (and in exceptional cases through eyes). Protect these entrances to your respiratory system with your life. If in rare cases virus does get in, only a light load of virus gets in if you have taken precautions, so that your present immunity system can deal with it. Do not be foolhardy to offer a free passage to the virus by going around without mask. Allowing a huge viral load to enter your respiratory system believing that you have a great immunity system is nothing but suicide. Such people will be mercilessly shown their mortality by the virus. Once the virus attacks your lung, then you will be forced to run around from pillar to post, but all these efforts will largely be fruitless. A mask costing a few rupees, and a disciplined lifestyle is more effective in preventing covid than all that desperate scramble clamouring for hospital beds, oxygen, remdesivir etc, and all that at black market prices.

And please get yourself vaccinated at the first opportunity available. India is one of the few countries that can produce its own vaccines and so India is not dependent on foreign supplies (which are difficult to come by). Most people are getting it for free in government facilities. but if some private hospitals are offering it against payment, then pay for it, avoid long waiting lists of government hospitals and get yourself vaccinated. Paying a few hundreds, or even a couple of thousands of rupees for the doses of this vaccine is fully worth it as will protect you from this deadly virus.

While discussing this deadly respiratory disease, I had decided that this article should be accompanied by a song dealing with “Saans”. The first “saans” song that I was reminded of was this song of “Aashiqui”(1990) but I thought that this song was already covered. On checking up, I heaved a sigh of relief (pun unintended) because this song was not yet covered in the blog.

Produced by Gulshan Kumar and Mukesh Bhatt and directed by Mahesh Bhatt, “Aashiqui”(1990) had Rahul Roy, Anu Agarwal, Reema Lagoo, Deepak Tijori, Avtar Gill, Tom Alter, Mushtaq Khan, Javed Khan, Sunil Rege, Homi Wadia, Anang Desai etc in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

This movie turned out to be a musical blockbuster. The story of the movie was quite run of the mill and no great shakes, but the music made the movie a super duper hit.

The song under discussion has two versions. THe movie begins with the male version sung by Kumar Sanu. This song is picturised as a hotel/ club song. Rahul Roy lip syncs the song. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

The female version song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal. Its video does not seem to be available. I had watched this movie in New Delhi and I vaguely recall having seen the female version also. But its video does not seem to be available now. In any case, it was the male version which was the more popular.

The song likens the need for a “sanam” to the need for “saans”. We take “saans” for granted, but not any longer, seeing the clamour of medical oxygen in these times. One never imagined that a time may come when one would be willing to pay money to be able to breath oxygen artificially. God has given us the ability to breathe this air for free. Let us hope that we will continue to be able to avail of this gift of being able to breathe naturally.

Today (12 May 2021) is also International Nurses’ day. On this occasion, let us all hail and appreciate the great service that they and other medical personnel are rendering in combating this pandemic.

Blog Day :

4629 Post No. : 16280

Today’s song, like the previous song of “Jurm”(1990) discussed by me, is from a very recent movie ‘Criminal-1995’. The movie made its debut on the blog on 05.09.2008, with its beautiful romantic song ‘tu miley dil khile aur jeene ko kya chaahiye’. After that no song of this movie has been discussed so far.

Today after a gap of ‘4580’ days (breaking earlier record 😊 ‘4579’days) we are going to listen to the second song of this movie in the blog. Like others I was also not aware of the other songs of this movie except its song ‘tu miley dil khile aur jeene ko kya chaahiye’.

‘Criminal-1995’ was directed by Mahesh Bhatt (like ‘Jurm-1990’). And very rightly he first directed ‘Jurm-1990’(crime) and then moved on to ‘Criminal-1995’. (However, on our blog we first discussed ‘Criminal’ on 05.09.2008 and the ‘Jurm’ on 12.09.2008 😊 then in 2008).

Let us now move to the credits of this movie ‘Criminal-1995’.

As mentioned above it was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for ‘Vishesh Films’. It was produced by Mukesh Bhatt. It had Nagarjuna, Manish Koirala, Ramyah Krishnan, Laxmikant Berde, Johny Lever, Beena, Zaheer, Nasser, Sharad Babu with Gulshan Grover and Ajit. They were supported by Palav Vyas, Gurbachan, Mukesh Pandey, Vishweshara Rao, Jenny, Ravi Kiran, Dharmavupuru, Devdas Kankla and others. (Wikipedia mentions this as the last movie of actor Ajit.). Trishna made a guest appearance in this movie.

Screenplay of this movie was written by Sainath and dialogues were written by Jay Dixit. Editing of this movie was done by Sanjay Sankla.

It was passed by Censor Board on 21.07.1995 with restricted viewing certificate i.e., with ‘A’ certificate. This movie is said to be inspired by ‘The Fugitive-1993’ (an American movie) and was first made in Telugu in 1994 and later on in Hindi in 1995. Later it was dubbed and released in Tamil too.

This movie had eight songs (including ‘tu miley dil khile’ in three versions) written by Indeewar. Music for this movie was composed by M.M. Kreem.

Today we will listen to a song sung by Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik (as per ‘wiki’ and the YT link) and performed on screen by Nagarjuna and Manisha Koirala and 😊 Nagarjuna and Ramyah.

As mentioned above I mainly associate this movie with its song ‘tu miley dil khile aur jeene ko kya chaahiye’ only, so I was not aware about the other songs of this movie. And I have so far not watched this movie too.
While writing about today’s post, I checked other songs of this movie and I found today’s song somewhat familiar (maybe I had heard it during those days) when I was staying at Kota (Rajasthan).

let us now enjoy the music of ‘nineties’ and listen to this song …

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

Hullo Atuldom

We are on the last date of the first month of the 21st year of the 21st century.

January happens to be a cold month in the northern hemisphere of the earth. And India is in the middle of having winter which is characterized by fog, mist, cold winds etc depending on the Latitude that one resides on. When I used to be in Mumbai, the closest I came to experiencing ‘Sardi’, ‘Thandi’ etc was in the last week of December or first week of January. That too in the morning hours, till about 8 o’clock, then the thermometer would read round about 27 and 30 degrees Celsius during the day. I don’t remember seeing fog or mist there, but I had different climatic experiences once we shifted to Bangalore. I have seen all winter related features which last from November to January end with temperatures dropping to 10 degrees etc. Now in my current station, which is in the midst of lots of greenery and away from the hustle bustle of city-life, though the temperature did not touch 10 degrees on any day, we have been experiencing thick fog, cold winds, cold floors, etc.

All this talk of winter and cold climate, in addition to sharing pictures of fog with friends and family reminded me of a whole set of songs:- ‘jab chali thandi hawa’, ‘thandi hawaa yeh chaandni suhaani’, ‘thandi hawaa kaali ghaata aa hi gayi jhoom ke’, ‘thandi hawaayen lehraake aayen’, ‘thandi thandi hawaa mein dil lalchaaye’, ‘mujhko thand lag rahi hain’ etc etc.

The songs that I have mentioned are all popular numbers from their times. But the movies of the new century are no different. They also have songs where the different characters are reacting to cold climates with lots of guts- it takes a lot of guts to shoot these songs in cold climates, with snow etc for added effect and in costumes that are of the thinnest fabric possible like chiffon, lace etc. (Possibly the only climate appropriate dressing was Saira Banu in ‘Junglee’ and some other heroines of the ’60s and Hema Malini in a few movies of the ’70s, recently I re-saw “Dost”.) For further enhancement of the scene we may even see short dresses with long boots. My sympathies with all the female actors who have done those songs and scenes. And what do the male actors wear in such songs- long coats, mufflers, gloves etc.

In the build up to this post I recalled a 23 year old song. This song was shot in the cold climes of Australia. I had mentioned this movie to fellow-atulites, on our WhatsApp group last week, when the India- Australia cricket series was on. The uniqueness about this song is the heroine is dressed in climate appropriate clothes and we have the hero trying to be MANLY and showing of his biceps etc in half-jacket and jeans. I also read the heroine reminiscing about how the actor was shivering during the shoot.

I am talking of Preity Zinta and Bobby Deol. The movie was “Soldier” which was released in 1998. It was produced by Ramesh Taurani of Tips Records and directed by the director-duo: brothers Abbas-Mustan. It had Anu Malik as music director and Sameer was the lyricist. It was the third highest grossing album of 1998 behind “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” and “Dil Se”.

This was Preity Zinta’s debut movie though she had signed “Kya Kehna” before this. “Dil Se” and “Soldier” have billed Preity Zinta as debutant; Preity had a supporting role in “Dil Se”. She was born in Shimla on 31st January. So today is her Birthday. Last I had written a post for her birthday was when she turned 40.

She has taken a sabbatical from acting a few times since 2009 for the sake of her IPL team. She has married her long-time American partner in 2016. In her career of almost 25 years, she has acted with all the top actors of the ’90s and later years. She has also acted in a movie with Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor where her character was negative and Schizophrenic. She was praised for her portrayal of the character. She also appeared alongside The Big B in an English language film that was directed by Rituparno Ghosh “The Last Lear” in 2007, this was a film-inside-a-film drama. She has also played the traditional glamorous actress in movies. She has shared screen space with top actresses like Madhuri Dixit, Rani Mukherjee etc too.

Today’s song is to wish Bobby Deol too, even if belatedly for his birthday which was on 27th, he turned 52. Born as Vijay Singh Deol into the film industry as the youngest child of Dharmendra and Prakash Kaur. He first faced the camera when he was 5 or 6 year old as the baby Dharam in “Dharam Veer” (1977). His first adult role was in “Barsaat” (1995) where another star-child Twinkle Khanna made her debut. He has one more “Barsaat” (2005) in the list of his films. He has appeared in a few mutli-starrers and also shared screen space with his father and brother in a few of their home productions. The “Yamla Pagla Deewana” series was good to see due to the Deols even if the story was lame, tame or weak. It is always entertaining to see the Deols.

Hullo Atuldom

A very Happy Republic day to one and all.

“India is my country
And all Indians are my brothers and sisters.
I love my country, and I am proud of its rich and varied heritage.
I shall always strive to be worthy of it.
I shall give respect to my parents, teachers, and all elders and treat everyone with courtesy.
To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion.
In their well being and prosperity alone, lies my happiness
Jai Hind!.”

This is the national pledge which is commonly found printed in the opening pages of the school text books and calendars. It is recited in the morning assembly of most Indian schools. It is part of the Indian Constitution. It is commonly recited by Indians in unison at public events, Independence day, Republic day etc. At least it used be so when I was a student, don’t know if this is still in practice. We all know who wrote the National Anthem or the National song but the author of the National Pledge is largely unknown. His name is P.V. Subba Rao who was a Telugu author and bureaucrat who composed the pledge when he was serving as District Treasury Officer in Vishakapatnam district in 1962/63. It was subsequently translated into other languages. Apparently Subba Rao himself was unaware of the Pledge having been adopted as National Pledge till he heard his grand daughter reading it from a textbook.

Hope we all get back to taking the pledge today on our 71st Republic day.
“Diljale” (1996) had music by Anu Malik and Javed Akhtar was the lyricist. It was produced by Paramjeet Baweja and directed by Harry Baweja; Karan Razdan (of the popular Doordarshan serial “Rajani” fame) was its story-screenplay-dialogue writer. It had a cast headed by Sonali Bendre- Ajay Devgan- Madhoo- Parmeet Sethi and Amrish Puri, Shakti Kapoor, Himani Shivpuri, Farida Jalal, Akash Khurana, Master Raju (as Raju Shrivastav), Rakesh Bedi, Tinnu Anand, Aroon Bakshi, Gulshan Grover etc in the supporting cast.

It was the story of Shyam (Ajay Devgan) who is the son of a patriotic village leader (Akash Khurana) who is in love with Radhika (Sonali Bendre) daughter of the local politician and an erstwhile Rajasaheb. The Raja cannot digest the love between the college students because of economic and class differences. He also cannot tolerate the village leader who is an obstacle in his aim to usurp the land of the villagers. The Raja, with the help of the local corrupt cop Gulshan Grover manages to frame the village leader and brand Shyam a terrorist when the latter goes to question the Raja’s actions. This causes a rift between the lovers.

Shyam manages to escape and finds refuge with Dara (Amrish Puri) and his gang who are basically pawns at the hand of India’s enemies. Shyam as Shaka tries to settle scores with Rajasaheb, and in process a few of his associates are captured by the army. Dara and his gang then hijack a bus of Vaishnodevi pilgrims so that they can pressurize the army into releasing their gang members. Radhika and her aunt are also part of the hostages. This provides the ex-lovers opportunity to clarify misunderstandings. The movie then proceeds to the climax with Shaka/ Shyam managing to avenge his father’s humiliation etc. He also manages to bring a change in the thinking of Dara and his gang who surrender to the army when they see that Shaka steps on a landmine that was meant to blow them up. All-in-all it was an entertaining movie but IMHO the solution to the terrorist problem, as shown in the movie, was rather lame.

“Diljale” had Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Poornima, Kumar Sanu, Udit Narayan and Master Aditya Narayan who has now grown into an adult and is a singer, composer and television host now. We have one song already in the blog out of the eight or nine songs that the movie had.

Today’s song is a two-version song. In the first version we have Akash Khurana lip-syncing to Kumar Sanu and tutoring his son about the motherland. The son lip-syncs to Aditya Narayan. This version has all the trappings of a National Day song with flag unfurling, releasing doves and Hindu Muslim bhaichara or unity as one may choose to view it. The second version starts as an antakshari played by the captives of Dara and gang and culminates as the patriotic song sung by Radhika in Kavita Krishnamurthy’s voice.

Incidentally 25th January happened to be Kavita Krishnamurthy’s 63rd birthday. She was born in Delhi as Sharada Krishnamurthy. She is married to Dr. L. Subramaniam a renowned composer, violinist, and conductor who is trained in Carnatic classical music as well as Western Classical music. Kavita got an opportunity to sing under the auspices of Hemant Kumar for a Bengali film in 1971 when she was still in college and Lata Mangeshkar was her co-singer. Hemantda’s daughter was instrumental in reintroducing Kavita to Hemantda and he began using her for his live performances. Manna Dey spotted her in one of these shows and then she sang a few advertisement jingles. Until 1985, when “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” happened, Kavita was a dubbing artist for many composers. “tumse milkar, na jaane kyun” and “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” was the turning point of her career. Here is wishing Kavita Krishnamurthy a life filled with happiness and music and good health.

Happy Republic Day once again.

Hullo Atuldom

“Duplicate” (release date 8/5/1998) was a movie that we went to see as a family because it had Shahrukh Khan in the lead. Those were times when we used to pick-and-choose movies which had decent or fun songs and some actor of our liking and we could take the children along. Thus we ended up seeing this ‘not-so-great’ story-wise film which was produced by Yash Johar and directed by Mahesh Bhatt. It had music by Anu Malik and lyrics were by Javed Akhtar. Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Udit Narayan and Shankar Mahadevan were the singers used. This was one of the cassette tapes that I had purchased as the kids loved its songs. Personally speaking, I enjoyed the movie as it was inane, illogical and simply masaledaar Bollywood stuff. The kind which helps us to forget ourselves during the duration of its screening.

This was Shahrukh’s first double role movie (1996 had seen him play a triple role in “English Babu Desi Mem”, but the characters he played didn’t share screen space) where he played a bumbling youngman out to get a job as a top chef in a big 5-star hotel. The other SRK was a gangster on the run. The movie opens with Manu, the gangster, trying to hoodwink the cops with the help of his girlfriend Lily (Sonali Bendre). Juhi Chawla plays Sonia Kapoor, a hotel HR Manager, who bumps into Babloo (chef SRK) when they get into the same Taxi (from different sides of course) and end up bickering about who had hailed the cab etc. The cab driver mediates and suggests that they share the fare as the destination is same- the hotel where Babloo has an interview to attend. The ride to the hotel is peppered with Babloo rehearsing for the interview and Sonia and the driver enjoying themselves. The highlight of the scene is when Babloo declares his goals in life which includes “feeding his girlfriend VADAPAV that he will make in the 5-star kitchen”. (I hope I am exact at this, Peevesie).

We had Farida Jalal playing Babloo’s mother who is disappointed with his career choice as her aim was to make him a wrestler like his father. The movie also has a sprinkling of supporting actors – Tiku Talsania whose aim is to nab Manu, Gulshan Grover playing the badman character, Sharat Saxena, Kunal Vijaykar etc. There is a guest appearance by Kajol (though I don’t recall much about that).

The songs were all fun to watch but there was one really lyrical song in the album which had Javed Akhtar at his romantic best (for this movie).This is the song with which the movie is making its debut on the blog today.

I would love it if the birthday boy would care to explain a few words of this song. I am hinting at our Dilldaar Dilliwala -Sudhirji. Last year I had wished that he didn’t run out of ‘ideas for posts and series’ and he came up with a “this week that year” series that is essentially analyzing the blog for that week 10 years ago. We are missing it for the last month and half Sirji!!! 🙂 We want more of it -‘Yeh dil maange more’.

It also happens to be Shahrukh Khan’s birthday today as also Anu Malik’s. One has ruled the hearts of his fans with his acting and the other has given songs that make the fans dance. One was born into the industry but worked his way up the ranks. The other had no filmy connection but still has had a good to very good career graph. The melodies that this team has dished out are mostly successful.

Cannot forget “kiska hai yeh tumko intezaar main hoon na” (Main Hoon Na); “ae mere humsafar ae meri jaan-e-jaan” and “yeh kaali kaali aankhen” (Baazigar); “apun bola tu meri laila” (Josh); “iss pyaar se meri taraf na dekho pyaar ho jaayega” (Chamatkar); oh there are numerous songs of this jodi that will feature in my playlist.

Anu Malik made his debut in 1977 and SRK made his debut first on Doordarshan in 1988 before Hema Malini signed him on for “Dil Aashna Hain” but his first release was “Deewana”. Both the movies had Divya Bharati as his heroine. then we had a deluge where we saw him in “Chamatkar” (first with Anu Malik as music director), “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” (first of many with Juhi Chawla), “Baazigar” (again Anu Malik and first with Kajol),etc. etc. He was given the Filmfare award for best actor for his anti-hero role in “Baazigar”. He has won awards as many as 14 Filmfare awards of which 8 are as best actor. He was awarded the Padma Shri in 2005.

Talking of Anu Malik, his father was the music director of the ’50s and ’60s. Recently I have subscribed to a channel which show evergreen classics along with programs like Sunheri Yaadein, Sitaaron Ka Caravan etc. One such treasure house program is Anmol Yaadein where in the host was interviewing Anu Malik. I saw Anu mention therein, that Sardar Malik was married to the sister of Hasrat Jaipuri. So as a child Anu, who was a fan of Shankar Jaikishan, used to pester his mama to take him along to the recordings where SJ were at work. Anu managed to meet his favourite composers through his mama (uncle Hasrat Jaipuri) and also play some music to them. Anu goes on to say that the legendary duo were impressed with Anu’s comfort when playing the Harmonium and he took it as their blessing for his future. He has worked with almost all lead singers of Bollywood starting with Manna Dey to many of the current day singers. He has been a judge on many Television shows.

Today’s song is in the voice of Kumar Sanu. It is filmed in the picturesque locales of Switzerland. In fact the church shown in this song is a famous attraction for Indian tourists and I recollect our tour operator making special mention of it as “the church where SRK has romanced a few heroines” mainly Kajol in DDLJ. This movie was not popular I suppose, or even this would have been mentioned.

Another thing which I would like to point out is the prominent use of the Tabla – Anu Malik’s favoured percussion instrument. It is used very nicely in the antara.

BTW I would love to know what is the meaning of “Katthai aankhon wali” as far as I understand the language ‘Kattha ‘ goes with ‘choona and supari’ in Paan (betel leaf).
Editors note:- (Katthai is the colour of katthai, viz bronish, so “katthai aankhon waali” means “browned eyed”.

Here is wishing our fellow Atulite a Very Very happy Birthday Sudhirji. In addition wishing the Bollywood jodi of Anu Malik and Shahrukh Khan on their birthday.

The series of “Dheere dheere songs” has been in the making since May 2019 starting with this post. But nothing to worry about, as I am keeping track of these posts and will give a recap in the final post of the series.

Next song in this series is this multiple version song from the film Phool aur Kaante- 1991. The music director are the duo Nadeem Sharavan, with their trusted team member Sameer being lyricist. Sameer holds the records for having written highest number of film song. The singers are Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik.

Myswar.com has listed three versions of the song, a duet and Alka Yagnik solo of “Dheere dheere pyar ko badhaana hai” and a sad duet version with slight change in words of mukhda “dheere dheere hausla badhaana hai”. I was not able to find the Alka Yagnik solo, so the lyrics and links are given for the happy and sad duet versions.

Two songs of this film are posted 10 years apart in the blog 2009 & 2019:

Song Date posted
Tumse milne ko dil kartaa hai 11 June 2009
Maine pyaar tumhi se kiya hai 11 June 2019

Actually this song already posted in the series is inspired by Joyce Sims’ “Come into my life” (1987). On first hearing, the similar things between the songs are the similar words of “meri zindagi mei naana” and “come into my life”, plus the same guitar interlude at the beginning of both songs. But some work on the part of lyricist and music director is definitely involved in creating a lovely Indian sounding song. Aashiqui was in 1990, and this movie “Phool aur Kaante” was in 1991. Come to think of it, this “dheere dheere” is having a similar tune to the Aashiqui song.

Dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
Dheere dheere se dil ko churaana

Dheere dheere pyaar ko badhaana hai
Hadd se guzar jaana hai

“Phool aur Kaante” was Ajay Devgan’s debut film and Madhoo was the heroine. The song’s both versions are picturised on them. I know that I have seen this movie at Bandra’s “Gaiety” cinema. But to recollect the actual happenings in the story is another thing. I visited the imdb page to get snippets of story etc. so can’t say it was a memorable film. And no, they haven’t translated the name of this movie to “Flower and Thorns” 🙂 🙂 .

Lyrics

Happy version

dheere dheere pyaar ko badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai
dheere dheere pyaar ko badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai
mujhe bas tujhse dil lagana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

dheere dheere pyaar ko badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

aisi zindagi hogi
har taraf khushi hogi
itna pyaar doonga tujhe
ae mere sanam
ab na koi gham hoga
na ye pyaar kam hoga
saathi mere mujhko tere sar ki hai kasam

ek dooje ko aazmaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai
dheere dheere pyar ko badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

main akela kya karta
aise hi aahen bharta
tere pyaar ke liye tadapta umr bhar
jaane kya main kar jaati
yoon tadap ke mar jaati
bin tere bhala kaise kat’ta ye safar

tere liye mar ke bhi dikhaana hai
had se guzar jaana hai
dheere dheere pyaar ko badhana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

tera chaand sa mukhda
tu jigar ka hai tukda
tu humaare sapnon ki jheel ka kanwal

jaan se tu hai pyaara aankhon ka tu hai taara
bin tere jiyenge ab hum na ek pal
sab kuch tujhpe hi lutaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

dheere dheere pyaar ko badhana hai
had se guzar jaana hai
mujhe bas tujhse dil lagaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

ho o
hadd se guzar jaana hai
haan
hadd se guzar jaana hai

——————–
Sad version
———————
aansu na bahaayenge
hansi dhoondh laayenge
miljul ke baant lenge
zindagi ke gham

aansu na bahaayenge
hansi dhoondh laayenge
miljul ke baant lenge
zindagi ke gham

bachh ke kahaan jaayegi
khushiyaan laut aayengi
haarenge na waqt ki in
aandhiyon se ham
dheere dheere hausla badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai
dheere dheere pyaar ko badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

Blog Day :

4448 Post No. : 15904

20th September was the birthday of Mahesh Bhatt. I knew there are numerous films with very good significant song in them produced and directed by Mahesh Bhatt which are not posted and some of these movies are yet to make an appearance in the blog. But it sometimes happens that what is easily available and do-able, never gets done and I neglected a few post, like the post for Hasrat Jaipuri during last week. Peevesie’s mom post of the Hinglish song from “Ham hain raahi pyaar ke” has encouraged me to do a post for this day.

This song from “Aashiqui” (1990) has a very appealing presence in the “Chitrahaar” made by Mahesh Bhatt. I have liked the songs of this film, as do many people of my generation. The only song from this film posted so far is here. In this post a lot about the film and the music is written.

For some months now, the link and lyrics are waiting in drafts for writing a post. The song is ‘Tu…… meri zindagi hai, tu…… meri har khushi hai”. Singer is the dependable Kumar Sanu. The lyrics are credited to Sameer and music to Nadeem-Shrawan”. But there is a catch here: see what I have found in the trivia about this song.

“This song was an adaptation of a Pakistani film song with the same mukhda from the film “Mohabbat Mar NahinSakti” (1977). The original song was composed by Nashad. While lyricist Sameer used the same mukhda as Tasleem Fazli’s original, the antara had different lyrics. The original song had two solo versions sung by Mehdi Hassan and Noor Jehan.”

I had years ago heard a Pakistani song of the same tune and mukhdaa on youtube, by a singer recording for PTV, while looking for this song from Aashiqui. But this information in the trivia is news to me. So I looked up the Noorjehan song and found both audio and video clips :
Audio by Noor jahaan
Video of film song.

The video of Mehdi Hasan version is also available :
Video of Mehdi hasan song
Audio version

Today 21 september is the 94th birth anniversary of Madam Noorjahan, and I find it fitting to give the lyrics of the song from the film “Mohabbat mar nahi sakti”(1977), sung by Noorjahan. The composer is Nashad, who might be the same one who features in the blog with many compositions in the 50’s decade.

Lyrics :

Tu uu uu uu
meri zindagi hai
tuuu
meri har khushi hai
tu hi pyaar tu hi chaahat
tu hi bandagi hai
Tu……
meri zindagi hai

jab tak na dekhoon tujhe
sooraj na nikle ae
jab tak na dekhoon tujhe
sooraj na nikle ae
zulfon ke saaye saaye
maahtaab ubhre
tu hi meraa hosh saathhi
tu hi bekhudi hai
Tuuuuu
meri zindagi hai
tuuu
meri har khushi hai
tu hi pyaar tu hi chaahat
tu hi bandagi hai
Tuuuuu
meri zindagi hai

mere labon pe tere
naghme milenge ae
mere labon pe tere
naghme milenge ae
aankhon mein saathhi tere
jazbe milenge ae
mere dil mein tu hi tu hai
teri raushni hai ae
Tuuuuu
meri zindagi hai

chhod ke duniyaa tujh ko
apnaa banaa loon
chhod ke duniyaa tujhko
apnaa banaa loon
sab se chhupaa ke tujhko o o
dil mein basaa loon
tu hi meri pehli khwaahish
tu hi aakhri hai ae ae
Tuuuuu
meri zindagi hai

So the song presented here is the second song from the film ‘Aashiqui’(1990). This is an indian adaptation of the song original sung by the two legends of across the border. Noor jahan and Mehdi Hasan were stalwarts of their style of singing and Kumar Sanu, singing the indian version was a Kishore Kumar clone, trying to make a name for himself back in 1990. So we will be kind and not make comparisons among unequal creations of the Almighty, whom he may have blessed differently.

But honestly, Kumar Sanu is not doing bad at all. Kumar Sanu’s birthday is also round the corner, on 23rd September. So we celebrate it a bit in advance with this remarkable song.

Hullo Atuldom

“Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke” (1993) had six songs, four of which are already on the blog as under,

Bambai Se Gayi Poona, Poona Se Gayi Dilli” – a wonderful post describing life at the various “pur”s and one “Nagar” and had 31 comments

Yoon Hi Kat Jaayega Safar Saath Chalne Se” – 3000th day of blog, post by Rajaji

Ghoonghat Ki Aad Se Dilbar Ka” – has a synopsis of the movie

and “Mujhse Muhabbat Ka Izhaar Karta“.

Here is the next one.

It is inside a garment Factory. Aamir Khan (Rahul) is trying to get his sister’s or jija’s factory running so that he can look after his niece and nephew/s who are not in a mood to accept him as their  guardian. To add to Rahul’s troubles the ladies working in the factory are in a mood to ‘rag’ their new boss. The songs were written by Sameer and tuned by Nadeem Shravan. It is sung by Kedarnath Bhattacharya popular as Kumar Sanu.

We are revisiting this movie to remember Tahir Hussain on his birth anniversary (19th September 1938- 10th february 2010) who was the producer of HHRPK (acronym of the movie). Incidentally Aamir Khan (hero of HHRPK) is his son and he was the main lead in two movies of TV Films, Tahir Hussain’s production house. Tahir Hussain, who was the brother of Nasir Hussain (maker of some classics of the 60s, 70s, 80s etc.) has classics like ‘Caravan’ (1971), ‘Anamika’ (1973), ‘Zakhmee’ (1975) etc. to his name as producer. He was the director of ‘Tum Mere Ho’ starring Aamir Khan in 1990.

20th September also happens to be the birth-date of the director of HHRPK -Mahesh Bhatt. He turns 72. He is known for movies that focused on relationships for example ‘Arth’, ‘Saransh’, even his initial ‘Lahu Ke Do Rang’ showed the relation between half-brothers played by Vinod Khanna and Danny almost like ‘Naam’ starring Kumar Gaurav and Sanjay Dutt. Mahesh Bhatt movies also had other regular Bollywood masala in it – action, emotion, drama and great music/ songs.
