Today’s song is from film 102 Not Out-2018.

Readers who identify me as a writer on old films, may be shocked, as I am about to write on a New Era song, as new as not even 1 year old ! But honestly, when I accidentally bumped into this song’s credit, which said that Amitabh Bachhan was the Music Composer of this song, I was myself surprised. Out of curiosity, I found out that song on You Tube and heard/saw it. Frankly, I was not only impressed but even I liked the song. Of course, much of the liking came from seeing the wonderful video of the song- which is just superb !

Amitabh Bachhan (AB for short please) is my favourite actor. I have been seeing many films since late 40s up to the end of the year 1963 – when I began my career in Pharma Marketing. In the beginning of 1971, I heard about film Anand-71, whose songs had already mesmerised me. I went to see the film. More than Rajesh Khanna, I was bowled over by the acting of the lanky New comer (it was AB’s just 7th film) – Amitabh Bachhan. Next I saw him when I was travelling in Goa, where I saw his film Bombay to Goa-72. This was a remake of Tamil film ” Madras to Pondecherry”-66. (Remakes were made in Marathi and Kannada also.) By now, AB had taken over my senses completely and I started seeing his films-but selectively.

Zanjeer-73 (15th film) made him a star. I enjoyed his films like Sholay-75, Deewar-75, Chupke Chupke-75, Amar Akbar and Anthony-77, Trishul-78, Don-78, Satte pe Satta-82 and Coolie-83. In early 80s, I stopped seeing films in Theatres or on TV, due to my job. After that till today, I have not visited a Theatre. I do not know how a Multiplex looks like from inside. I am not proud of this, but it underlines a fact that I had lost interest in seeing the New age films and that I had low level patience. Sometimes I saw films on VCP and later Video player. The last film of Amitabh I saw was Baadbaan-2003. My most favourite film of Amitabh is Trishul-78. I had even bought its Video cassette that time.

Amitabh Harivansh Bachchan, best known as Amitabh Bachchan, was born in Allahabad, India on October 11, 1942. India was still a British colony at the time, and would not achieve independence until five years later. Bachchan’s father was the renowned Hindi poet Dr. Harivansh Rai. His mother, Teji Bachchan, was a Sikh socialite. He has one younger brother, named Ajitabh.

Bachchan went to Sherwood College boarding school before enrolling in Delhi University, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree. Once he graduated, he became a freight broker in Calcutta. After a few years in Calcutta, Bachchan was ready for a change. He decided to move to Bombay and take a stab at Bollywood show business. By this time, India had been independent for nearly two decades, and Hindi cinema was thriving.

In 1969, Bachchan made his film debut in Saat Hindustani. Although the movie tanked at the box office, Bachchan still managed to capture the attention of directors. Soon enough, the offers started rolling in.

By the early 1970s, Bachchan had garnered popularity with audiences as the “angry young man” in a series of successful Hindi feature films. His starring role in Zanjeer was particularly instrumental in launching him to stardom as an action-movie hero. Bachchan’s performances in films like Laawaris, Coolie, Naseeb, Silsila, Shaarabi and Jaadugar continued to enamor fans of the tall and handsome action hero, and also landed him multiple Fanfare Awards. From the 1970s through the early 1980s, the swashbuckling Bachchan appeared in more than 100 films. He seized opportunities to work with India’s most acclaimed directors, such as Prakash Mehra, and dominated the silver screen with films like Trishul, Sholay and Chashme Buddoor. In addition to acting, Bachchan’s roles often required him to sing.

In 1982, Bachchan had a serious accident while filming. Fans prayed for his recovery. Bachchan survived the accident, but it prompted him to change career paths. In 1984, he traded his Bollywood stardom for a seat in the Indian Parliament. His political aspirations proved to be short-lived; in 1987, he left his seat due to unexpected controversy.

By the 1990s, the limelight surrounding Bachchan had begun to fade. But his decision to start his own entertainment production company, Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited, and make himself CEO, put him back in the headlines. Bachchan followed his true calling and returned to the silver screen in 1997 with the film Mrityudaata, produced by ABCL. In 2000, he also started hosting the Indian version of the television game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. Despite a few box-office failures in the 1990s, in the 2000s, Bachchan climbed his way back up to stardom as a film actor, earning additional Filmfare and International Film Award nominations for his work on films like Baghban (2003), Khakee (2004) and Paa (2009).

Bachchan married movie actress Jaya Bhaduri in 1973. The couple have two children, a daughter and a son. Their daughter, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, is married to industrialist Nikhil Nanda, whose grandfather was the film director Raj Kapoor. Bachchan and Bhaduri’s son, Abhishek Bachchan, is also an actor and is married to actress Aishwarya Rai.

In addition to being a father and an actor, Bachchan devotes his time to charitable causes. In 2003 he was appointed a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). He has won several awards and recently the Dadasaheb Phalke award too. (biography.com).

In my recent post, I had done the analysis of Ashok Kumar’s work pattern. In that article, I had said that may be AB would overtake Ashok kumar’s statistics and the pattern. This was because both of them had a long career period – 61 years for AK and 50 years for AB, and both commanded market demand in their old age, long after their prime times in films. Today, let us see how AB fares….

Period Aproximate age Number of films done
1969-70 27-28 2 First film- Saat Hindustani-69
1971-80 29-38 62
1981-90 39-48 43
1991-2000 49-58 20
2001-2010 59-68 58
2011-2019 69-77 47

From 1981 to 2000 (20 years) he acted only in 63 films. In 1982 he met with a serious accident during shooting of Coolie film. Then in 1984, he joined Politics and became an M.P., He quit politics in 1987 and rejoined films. But by 1990, his limelight started fading and films were hard to come by. He formed his own company Amitaqbh Bachhan Corporation Limited (ABCL). In the year 2000, his fortune took a turn. He was selected to conduct a game show on TV- Kaun Banega Karodpati. This proved to be an extraordinary successful venture and his popularity soared. This also reflected in his films From 20 films in the decade of 1991 to 2000, he shot to 58 films in 2001 to 2010 period.

He remains one of the most respected actor in the film industry and is in full demand for films. AB has so far acted in 232 films. He has sung 64 songs in 44 films – though none of his songs have become a craze or popular. His first song came in film Kabhie Kabhie-76 and latest song is for film Badla-2019. I feel his golden period was when he worked with Manmohan Desai, Prakash Mehra and Hrishikesh Mukherjee. He was also benefited when he worked with 15 Screenplays and stories by Salim-Javed. it would have been 17 films, but he refused Hasth ki safai-74 and Mr.India-87 – both films were Box office Hits. Another thing. I read on Internet about his 1969 film ” Ek tha Chander, Ek thi Sudha ” starring AB, Jaya and Rekha. Was there any such film ? If anybody knows anything, please let me know. There is no mention of this film anywhere else.

Today morning (19th), I read in news that AB was admitted in Nanavati Hospital since 15th October for a Liver problem. Luckily, while I am typing this post,I learnt that he has been discharged in the morning only. I wish him good health and like this film’s title let him be 102 Not Out !!!

The film was directed by Umesh Shukla. It was based on a Gujarati story by Soumya Joshi. His next 3 films are ready for release in 2020 – Gulabo-Sitabo, Chehre and Bramhastra. This film had 6 songs. 3 were composed by Salim Suleimani, 1 each was composed by Amitabh Bachhan, Hiralal Bramhabhatt and Rohan Vinayak. The lyrics were by Amitabh Bhattacharya, who has written 308 songs in 82 films. He sang 31 songs in 18 films also. The film was released on 4-5-2018 and earned Rs 102 crores for an investment of Rs. 35 crores only. The story of the film, as per wiki, is….

Dattatraya Vakharia (Amitabh Bachchan) is a 102-year-old who enjoys life in jovial ways. Babulal Vakharia (Rishi Kapoor), his 76-year-old son, is the opposite, and believes that he is now too old to enjoy life, and detests how his father acts. Dhiru (Jimit Trivedi) is an employee at a medical shop who delivers medicine to the Vakharias. Dhiru likes Dattatraya for his attitude and is scared of Babulal because of his grumpy nature.

Dattatraya seeks to break the record of the oldest living person. and thus he seeks to avoid negative people. Therefore, he threatens to send his son to a elderly care facility unless he achieves certain conditions. While Babulal is hesitant, he accepts with Dhiru as a witness. Firstly, Babulal writes a love letter to his deceased wife. Next, he accuses his doctor of being a thief so that he stops going to the clinic daily for a checkup. While rejecting to cut holes in his childhood blanket, Babulal visits a playground and a church that remind him of childhood memories. He becomes sorrowed and distributes cake to young children in the streets with his father.

Babulal begins to appreciate his father’s outlook on life. However, Babulal receives a call from his estranged son Amol informing Babulal that he will visit India. While Babulal is ecstatic hearing the news, Dattatraya is certain that Amol’s motive is to claim their property as their heir. So he gives Babu his last task: to kick Amol out of the house for all his negligence towards his family. They argue and Babulal stops talking to Dattatraya. Even Dhiru, for the first time, supports Babulal and feels that Amol should be given a chance. Dattatraya reveals that Babu had spent all his savings to educate Amol and send him to the United States. However, Amol ignored them, telling nothing about his new family life in America. Dattatraya also tells his son he has cancer, living happily so that Babulal can live like him.

Days later, Amol arrives in India, where Babulal humiliates him in public, calling him to return home. Dattatraya passes away at 102 years of age. Babulal finds a recording of his father predicting that the record of the oldest man will be broken by Babulal himself.

When you will see this video song,I am sure you too will like it. With this song, film 102 Not out and AB as a Music Director make a Debut on the Blog.

This song reiterates, what I always say,” Not all that was made before 70 was good,same as, Not all that is made after 70s is bad”. There is always some good everywhere !

Today’s song is a Parody song from film Phoolwari-46. It is sung by Mohantara Talpade. Jayashree T and Meena T were her brother’s daughters, I believe. Mohantara was a major female playback singer in the 40s. Starting with film Mamaji-42,she sang 117 songs in 54 films, till Inaam-55. Though she got married in 1950 to Dr. Ajinkya, she continued with using her maiden name to avoid confusion. Mohantara was a popular Bhavgeet and film singer in Marathi also.

In Hindi films we find a variety of songs. Love songs, Happy songs, Sad songs, Comedy songs, Birthday songs, patriotic songs, Chorus songs, prayers, Lories, Bhajans and many more types.

However there is one type of songs which is a sure hit with all viewers and that is a PARODY SONG(in Hindi it is called VIDAMBAN song – विडंबन ). Normally a Parody song is equated with a medley of old popular song tunes, set to new Lyrics, enacted by someone else.

While this is right to a great extent, the actual definition of a Parody song is ” A song which involves changing or copying well known musical ideas or lyrics or copying a particular style of a composer or an actor or even a general twisted style of Music ”.

Our friend AK ji of Songs of Yore says, “As is commonly known, parody is an exaggerated imitation of a person, song, literature or performance to produce a comic effect. It seems parody has existed from the earliest days of dramatic performance. Wikipedia states that according to Aristotle, Hegemon of Thasos was the inventor of a kind of parody; by slightly altering the wording in well-known poems he transformed the sublime into the ridiculous. In ancient Greek literature, a parodia was a narrative poem imitating the style and prosody of epics “but treating light, satirical or mock-heroic subjects”. The ancient Indian treatise on dramaturgy, Natyashstra by Bharat Muni, is of similar antiquity. Though it mentions Prahasan as one of the ten types of play, from its definition it seems to be a low form of performance – something like burlesque – and not quite parody as we know today.

Where do parody songs in Hindi films fit in the above general description? Parody songs do not have any pretensions of being art. They are not intended to mock the original either. Very simply, these songs are a recognition of the original’s popularity. They include a large number of such songs. Broadly classified Parody songs are in two types: one, parody based on a single song, and the other, a medley of songs. There could be some more subtle variations within these broad categories.” (adapted, with thanks, from his article on Songs of Yore dt.2-3-2018)

The very FIRST Parody song in Hindi films came as early as 1936. It came from a film called ” Sunehara Sansaar”-1936. It was a Parody of a famous patriotic song by Dr. Iqbal-” Saare jahan se achha Hindosta hamara…” The parody song was ‘ Saare jahan se achha saabun bana hamara,hum kishtiyan hai iski…’

The lyricist was Vijay Kumar, B.A. and the Music Director was K C Dey.

When the song was released, instead of becoming popular, it drew people’s ire for distorting a patriotic song. There was criticism and several protests.

Another Music Director Master Mohd. (who was well known for composing many patriotic songs in those days, in his films) decided to make a Parody of K C Dey’s famous song, ‘Jao jao aye mere sadhu…’ from Pooran Bhagat-1933.

He included this parody song in same year in his film ‘ Miss frontier Mail ‘-1936. The lyrics for this song were- gaao gaao aye mere aye mere sadhu…’.

It was sung by Minu,the Mystique in the film.

This Minu was actually Minoo Cooper, a regular singer in Bombay city Parsi circles. He used to sing in many Hotels in those days. He has also sung a few more songs in Hindi films later.

This retaliatory Parody song was well received by the audience and it became popular too.

This song has been posted on this Blog, by our dear SUDHIR ji, on 29th June 2012.,along with a very interesting write up, for which he is known.

So, parody songs entered Hindi films with an interesting History behind them !

I can recall that during our younger days, it was our hobby to twist the popular songs with comic lyrics. Even today I still remember a few of them…

1) Jiya beqarar hai
Nargis ko bukhar hai,
Aja be Dilip kumar
tera intejar hai.

2) Dhoti chhod ke mat jaana
Dhoti saath mein le jaana
kasam tujhe mere Pehelwanki….

3) Bhaiya mere, saambaar mein Idli na dubaana

4) Ek saal pehle,tum to Bekaar the
Gadhe pe sawar the,
aaj bhi ho,aur kal bhi rahoge…

5) De gayi bill, budhiya dukaan ki… etc etc

I am sure many of the readers also must have done this,in their times. These song Parodies added spice to our lives. So when some film had a Parody song, we used to see that film without fail !

Making a Parody song is one of the easiest matters for the Music Directors and many Music Directors have resorted to Parody songs at least once, except probably serious composers.

The cast of the film Phoolwari was Motilal, Khursheed, Dikshit, Tiwari, Himmat Sharma (brother of Kidar Sharma), Leela Shinde, Baby Anwari etc etc. The film was made in Ranjit studios. Ranjit was almost like a factory, churning out films after films continuously. The studio had 6 shooting floors. When a Ranjit film was not shooting, the floor would be given on hire to other producers. When film Phulwari was being made, there were other five films shooting in Ranjit , on other floors. They were Prabhu ka Ghar, Chaand Chakori, Dharati, Rajputani and Seeta Haran. In this list, Khurshid had 2 films, Trilok kapoor was in 2 films and Mumtaz Shanti also had 2 films being shot there at the same time. In other films actors like Jairaj and Surendra were acting. By the way this was Khurshid’s last film at Ranjit Studios.

The film was directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi. Chaturbhuj Doshi (1894–1969) was a Hindi and Gujarati writer-director of Indian cinema. He was one of the top Gujarati screenplay writers, who helped script stories for the Punatar productions. He is stated to be one of the leading figures who launched the Gujarati film industry with work on notable films like Gunsundari (1948) and Nanand Bhojai (1948). He was well known for his family socials and had become a celebrity in his own right. He made a name for himself as a journalist initially and was referred to as the “famous journalist” & publicist by Baburao Patel, editor of Filmindia.

His debut film as a director was Gorakh Aya (1938), produced by Ranjit Movietone, though he joined Ranjit in 1929, as a scriptwriter. In 1938, he directed another film for Ranjit, a social comedy, The Secretary, and both films were box-office successes for Doshi. His forte was socials, regularly adapting stories and novels for films. He worked initially on comedies like Secretary and Musafir (1940), but then “shifted to more significant films”.

Chaturbhuj Anandji Doshi was born in 1894 in Kathiawad, Gujarat, British India. He was educated at the University of Bombay, after graduation he started work as a journalist for a daily, Hindustan (1926), working for editor Indulal Yagnik. His entry into films was working as a scenarist in the silent era for directors like Jayant Desai, Nandlal Jaswantlal & Nanubhai Vakil. He joined Ranjit Movietone in 1929, and wrote stories and screenplay for several of Ranjit films.

Film Gorakh Aya (Gorakh has come) in 1938, was the first film directed by Doshi. It was produced by Ranjit Movietone with screenplay by Gunvantrai Acharya & dialog-ues by P. L. Santoshi. The music, termed “good” was composed by Gyan Dutt. The Secretary (1938), was a “riotous comedy”, starring Madhuri, Trilok Kapoor. Charlie. The music was composed by Gyan Dutt, became a regular in most of the films directed by Doshi. Musafir in 1940 was a comedy costume drama, which had Charlie playing a prince.

Bhakta Surdas, a devotional film directed by Doshi in 1942, is stated to be the “most famous” of the several versions made. It starred K. L. Saigal and Khursheed “the singing idol(s) of millions”, winning “unprecedented popularity” everywhere.

Maheman (1942) starred Madhuri, Ishwarlal, Shamim and Mubarak. Music director Bulo C. Rani had come to Bombay in 1942, and joined Ranjit Studios assisting Khemchand Prakash in music direction.

Doshi helped enormously in the development of the Gujarati cinema. During 1948-49 he directed three successful Gujarati films which “brought immense success to the industry”. The success of the Gujarati film Kariyavar in 1948, directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi from a story by Shaida, called Vanzari Vaav, helped establish the Gujarati film industry along with other films like Vadilo Ne Vanke (1948) by Ram chandra Thakur and Gadono Bel (1950) by Ratibhai Punatar. His next Gujarati film was Jesal Toral (1948) based on folk-lore, which proved a big box-office success. In 1949, Doshi directed another Gujarati film, Vevishal, an adaptation of Meghani’s novel of the same name.

He also wrote stories, and one of his stories Pati Bhakti was used in the Tamil film En Kanawar (1948) produced by Ajit Pictures, which starred the Veena maestro, Sundaram Balachander, who was also the debut director and music composer for the film. In all he directed 24 Hindi films. His last Hindi film was Sanskar-1958. He had also written few songs in film Maya Bazar-32.

Chaturbhuj Doshi died on 21 January 1969 in Bombay, Maharashtra, India.

In the cast, you will find a name Dikshit or Dixit. In the olden films Dixit and Ghory was a comedy pair, which became very famous. Some times they even acted singly in different films. Phoolwari-46 was one such film for Dixit.

Manohar Janardhan Dixit was born on 12-11-1906 at Sinner in Nashik district,Maharashtra (Bombay state at that time.) His comedy career started with silent film ‘Sparkling youth’-1930. His first day of work in a film was 14-11-1929. He did 3 more silent films with Navjivan Films and then joined Ranjit studio. Here he met his mate Nazir Ahmed Ghori,born on 11-8-1901 at Bombay.He was the senior of the two,having started in 1927. He worked till 1931 in silent films of various companies and then joined Ranjit studio in 1931 Here too he did 4 silent films.

He paired with Dixit first time in Char Chakram-1932,directed by Jayant Desai.The film was a terrific hit and the pair did many films together like, Bhutio mahal, Do Badmash, Bhola shikar, Bhool bhulaiya, Vishwamohini, Nadira etc. They worked together till 1947,doing solo films also in between. Unfortunately none of their films have survived and we know about their acting only through Photographs,interviews and articles. However Dixit’s solo films like Pehle Aap-44, Jeevan yatra-46, Aap ki sewa mein-47 and Pugree-47 are still available. In film Pugree,his name was Ramu kaka and the very fat Dixit (222 pounds) carried the world’s smallest dog-Chikoo in the film. Later comedian Omprakash did this role in the remake of the film in Dil Daulat Duniya-1972.

Dixit acted in 66 Talkie films and 8 silent films in 17 years. He died on 29-6-1949 due to a massive heart attack. His partner Ghori migrated to Pakistan and did 8 films there till 1960,without much success. He too died on 9-12-1977 at Karachi. (Thanks to book Ina Mina Dika by Sanjit Narwekar.)

Music was by Hansraj Behl, for this Ranjit movie. I have heard many many parody songs, have seen also many, but this must be the only time when the singer of the original song is also in the same film in which that singer’s song is ‘parody- ed’. Today’s song is a parody of the famous song of Khurshid from film Tansen-43 ” Ghataa ghanghor ghor, Mor machaave shor “. I wish I was able to this film.

“Raaj Mukut”(1950) was directed by Nanubhai Vakil for Mohan Pictures, Bombay. This Costume drama movie had Nimmi, Veena, Jairaj, Ram Singh, Sapru, Mishra, Gulab, Ramesh sinha, Ramesh Thakur, Jankidas, Baby Tabassum etc in it.

This movie had eleven songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past.

The story of the movie, as goven by our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh is as follows:

Film Raaj Mukut-50 story was about a Prince who is more interested in doing social service for the poor and down trodden ( and a love affair with the Village Mukhiya’s daughter) than getting crowned legitimately. So he disappears and goes to a village, to do what he always wanted to do, but could not do so far.

He learns that his younger brother, crowned after the deliberate false rumour of the prince- was perpetrating tyranny on kingdom’s people and also arrested his own parents and jailed them. His blood boils and he enters the capital incognito, along with his girlfriend and others. There is a fighting and the younger brother is killed. The King and Queen are released. The prince becomes the King and his girlfriend becomes his Queen. Clap, Clap !

On this occasion, here is a rare song from “Raaj Mukut”(1950). HFGK mentions this song as sung by Shamshad Begam. On listning to the song, we can detect an uncredited male voice as well. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this voice.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist of this light hearted song. Pt Govindram is the music director.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this fun song. The song appears to be a dance song or a roadside tamasha kind of a song to me.

Today 9 october 2019 happens to be the 4100th day for the blog. A century of a different kind for the blog.

This rare song was uploaded by our own Gajendra Khanna. What a delightful song it is ! Fit to be covered on the special occasion viz 4100th day of the blog.

hullo to all of Atuldom

Yesterday (13 august 2019) was the birth anniversary of our dear Sridevi, hailed as the first female superstar of Bollywood. I was not liking it that we had let it go without a post. Then last thing before I switched off for the day, I saw a song on some satellite channel and had my ‘eureka’ moment. I found a song from the later period of Sridevi’s career when she had started experimenting with the characters she played.

The song was from the 1997 Raj Kanwar directed and Boney Kapoor produced “Judaai”. The movie starred Sridevi alongside Urmila Matondkar and Anil Kapoor with Kadar Khan, Johnny Lever, Farida Jalal, Upasana Singh, Junior Mehmood, Paresh Rawal, Dinesh Hingoo, Saeed Jaffrey and two sweet child actors. Poonam Dhillon had a special appearance. The movie was a remake of a 1994 Telugu film “Shubhalagnam”.

It was a story of a lady Kajal (Sridevi) who gets her honest and loving husband (Anil Kapoor) married to his boss’s niece (Urmila) in exchange for money in her quest to become rich quickly. She gets this done much against her husband’s wishes and she faces social problems when she realises that it is not possible to remain your ex-husband’s legal wife after having divorced him and practically sold him to another lady. The film received mixed reviews for its simple and clichéd plot and execution. But the performances of the lead actresses were appreciated. This was Sridevi’s last film appearance before she took a sabbatical to lead a family life. Sridevi and Johnny Lever played the children of Kadar Khan and Farida Jalal.

Incidentally today happens to be the 62nd birthday of Johnny Lever. He was brought up as John Prakash Rao Janumala. He had to drop out of studies as his family faced financial problems and he pithed in by doing odd jobs including selling pens on the streets by mimicking Bollywood stars etc. At a program in his father’s plant (Hindustan Lever Limited) he mimicked some senior officers and the workers there gave him his stage name JOHNNY LEVER. He started out his career doing stage shows Kalyanji Anandji Nite, Tabassum Hit Parade etc which served as his launchpad. He has been entertaining the world since the 80s. His daughter Jamie is following in his footsteps and is a comedian-actor-singer. Here is wishing him a long and healthy life.

Todays’ song is sung by Bali Brahmabhatt, Alka Yagnik and Shankar Mahadevan. Nadeem Shravan are the music composers and Sameer was the lyricist. It is a party song that celebrates the birthday of Sridevi’s character’s daughter. We have Upasana Singh, Kadar Khan, Sridevi, Urmila and Anil Kapoor singing and Junior Mehmood is also there in the scene.

So, here is a song which sings the mind of most males of the species. I am not judging anybody. 🙂 my statement is based on all the husband-wife jokes that are constant on the various social media forums. 🙂

Blog Day : 4028 Post No. : 15142

In old days, we had days of specialists. Hero, Heoine would sing songs, play lovey dovey, etc.

Villain’s would made the life of hero and heoine miserable. They would have mujra and or cabarat dancers as part of villain’s set up.
Singing quawwali in disguise would be the response of the lead actors.

Then there was comic side plot. And then character artists, such as parents of the lead actors, siblings of the lead actors etc.

From 1970s onwards, days of multitasking began and specialists found themselves threatened. Here the hero himself would do comedy as well as villainy. The heroine would perform cabarat/ mujra herself.

Fortunately, one did not witness multi tasking till 1960s and specialists ruled the roost those days.

As far as comedy was concerned, Johny Walker was the go to man, and he was followed by Mehmood.

When I try to analyse Johny Walker’s comedy, I find that his comedy often involved being in the wrong books of ladies. Sometimes he would find himself on the wrong side of dogs as well. 🙂

Johny Walker had acted in not one but two movies called “Baazi”, viz “Baazi” (1951) and “Baazi”(1968). “Baazi”(1951) was his debut movie, whereas “Baazi”(1968) came towards the fag end of his career.

“Baazi”(1968), lesser known that the 1951 namesake, was directed by Moni Bhattacharya for Golden Films Production, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Johnny Walker, Mehmood, Helen, Ansari, Nazir Hussain, Ullhas, Chans Usmani, Amar, Manmohan, Keshto Mukherjee, Pinchoo Kapoor etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Today (29 july 2019) is the 16th remembrance day of Johny Walker (11 November 1926 – 29 July 2003). As a tribute to him, here is a song from “Baazi”(1968). IT is a Johny Walker type comedy song, viz a song where he is in trouble at the hands of the fair sex. It turns out that he sees not one but two ladies simultanously and he finally gets caught by both.

So here is this song from “Baazi”(1968). it is sung by Manna Dey. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song shows Johny Walker being taken to task by Helen and Shammi. Singing while being chased by two ladies, that is Johny Walker for us. 🙂

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day : 4022 Post No. : 15134

Today’s song is from film Nakhre-51. It is sung by Devendra Mohan, Shamshad Begum and chorus. This is a foot tapping song, reminding of a Vinod or O P Nayyar song.The tune of this song resembles a more well known song of later period,but I am unable to identify it. This is a second successive song I am discussing, after song from “Hawai Khatola”-46 which also had a similar tune to some other song.

I have come across umpteen number of songs from Hindi films which have similar tunes-in part or the whole song. I am not talking of Parody songs, because Parody songs obviously use a popular tune to make fun of it,with different but funny lyrics. Here the intention is to make a comedy song.

I am talking of those ‘inspired ‘ songs, which are composed intentionally and can be called a copy song. I remember I had written an article ” Ek dil do jaane- Ek tune do gaane “, in March 2013 on a friend’s Blog called Harveypam’s blog. In that article,I had given 20 songs as examples in which tunes were copied from other Hindi songs. Our Raja ji, Ava Suri ji and our regular commentator Partha Chanda ji were regular readers and had put their comments on my article that time. Other readers had put examples of another 50-60 songs which had similar tunes.

This phenomenon of copying can be found in Hindi films since Talkie films started.Initially,the whole song used to be repeated in another film,by other composers. Later on they settled on copying only the tunes,perhaps !

After 1950 onwards, copying a tune became a frequent practice. SD Burman’s song from film ‘ Naujawan’-51 ( Thandi hawaen,lahara ke aayen) was copied 6 more times in different songs in different films. ( the original song itself was ‘inspired’ by ” C’est La Vie” by Charles Boyer from film “Algiers”-1938 ). A well known case is of Madan Mohan copying the tune of Sajjad Husain’s Sangdil-51 song” Ye hawa ye raat ye chaandni”, for his song from ” Aakhri Daon”-58-” tuze kya sunaun main dilruba”. Famous Music Critic Girija Rajendran had openly proved how all songs of film ” Mera naam Joker”-70 were copies from earlier film songs. For example, the Title song “Kehta hai Joker, saara zamana” was copied from ” apni nazar se unki nazar tak” a song from film Hum Log-51.( See, I can write on Poetry side also !!!)

This is a vast subject and a whole book can be written on it. So far only Hindi songs inspired by other Hindi songs has been discussed. If you see songs from Bangla and other languages, then you may have to write 3 books ! Does it mean that there is no originality in Hindi film songs ? No, there ARE original tunes and songs in Hindi films. To conclude this topic,I quote a few lines from the interview of Music Director Nashad, published in Film Fare of 5th August 1955, where he has spoken about inspired songs……

” Although no one says it to my face, I know that there is a section in the film industry who decry my music as “a re-hash of familiar tunes.”
This amounts to a charge of plagiarism.

I have no defense, no apology, to offer, except to say that, if am a plagiarist, I am one unconsciously.
With only seven main notes, six ragas, thirty-six raginis and seventy-two sub-raginis, every “new” musical composition is bound to sound familiar in places.
Try to hum any popular film composition of today and then cast back your mind. Make a careful search for a parallel and you will easily find one in some celebrated songs of yesterday….”

This sounds like an excuse to me. What is to Nashad is same to other MDs too, then how come others are not blamed for plagiarism? Let us leave it at that only.

Film Nakhre-51 was directed by Surya Kumar. Yes, he is the same famous Dance Master/ Choreographer of many hit films of 50s and 60s. Suryakumar and Krishna kumar were brothers. Both were Choreographers. The story of Dance Director brothers Krishna kumar and Surya kumar is very interesting.

Anthony (Tony) Lazarus was born in 1918 and his younger brother Robert Lazarus was born on 14-12-1924. They lost the parents and were raised in an orphanage, from where , the famous film dancer Azurie picked them and trained till they became good dancers. Tony became Krishnakumar and Robert took the name Suryakumar. Krishna Kumar started acting and doing choreography in films of late 40s and early 50s. In every film of Mehboob and Kardar, he was present. Soon he became famous. However, he also developed some enemies. Krishnakumar was murdered by his enemies on 7-7-1951. The culprits were never captured.

It is believed that it was Krishna Kumar, who taught Master Bhagwan his famous Dance steps (later copied by Amitabh Bachhan also), making his film ‘Albela’ a block buster. In one of the famous songs in Albela, you can see Krishnakumar’s photo kept on a table, as a tribute to him.

Robert aka Suryakumar started his film career as asstt. in a sound department in Saigal’s last film,’Parwana’-1947. During this period,yesteryear actress/Dancer Azurie trained him and krishnakumar in Dancing. In those days the term ‘Choreographer was not used. They were simply called ‘Dance masters’ or ‘Dance Directors’.

Actress Azurie had a German father and an Indian mother. She is considered as the pioneer in Film dancing in India. She was so famous in films,that Cuckoo modelled herself on her dancing skills and succeeded. Azurie(1907-1998) trained Suryakumar in dancing.

Suryakumar then assisted madame Simka(a disciple of Uday Shankar),in film “Awaara”-1951,when he first directed Helen who was in the chorus of Dancing girls that time. Suryakumar later directed Helen in 31 films.Their last film together was Bombay 405 Miles-1980. Suryakumar was also very friendly with dancer Edwina. He visited her London home many times, after she settled after marriage in London.

Surya Kumar himself also trained Suryanarayana, Oscar and many others. After 1970, Heroines themselves became dancing girls and the roles of Dance masters reduced considerably. Posh Choreographers came on the scene.

Surya Kumar had a penchant for acting. He would himself appear in most of his dances in films. During our college days, it was our pastime to search for him in Helen dances. Surya kumar acted in 7 films, in small roles – Singar-49, Naya Raasta-53, Shesh Naag-57, Bus Conductor-59, Aankh Michauli-62, Har Har Mahadev-74 and Shravankumar-88. Surya Kumar also directed 4 films – Kamal-49, Nakhre-51, Laadla-54 and Saazish-59.

He then worked as a Production assistant and as an editor too,before retiring. His last days were spent in poverty and he died on 19-8-1987 in Bombay.

Normally, choreographers, cinematographers, editors,arrangers,dress designers,art directors etc (artists behind the curtains) are the most neglected people and no one writes about them,so not is much known also about them. It was very difficult to gather information on Surya kumar.

Let us now listen to today’s song. If any reader can identify similar tune song from other films,kindly inform us in the comments column.

Blog Day :

4005 Post No. : 15109 Movie Count :

4150

For today’s post, I have chosen a movie who’s two namesakes are already there on the blog and thanks to their popularity they have even been yippeed already. However, this 2002 release and another namesake are perhaps waiting for me to open their account on the blog.

This film like many of the movies (phenomena particularly seen in 1930s) was inspired by a play. The director Vipul Amrutlal Shah adapted this movie from his own Gujarati play Andhalo Pato (Blindman’s Bluff). He has done these kind of adaptations later as well. I feel that its certainly a good idea to adapt movies from plays, novels, short stories etc as these often have wonderful ieas in them around which screenplays can be built. A good script will always give strength to a movie. Music no doubt is important to a movie but it can only do so much alone. I hope our filmmakers today will focus more on continuing this trend of re-using good stories rather than re-using good songs to make something else out of them!

The film tells the story of Vijay Singh Rajput (Bachchan) a hard-working but temperamental man who has spent all his life working for one bank and even achieving them international recognition. When Vijay loses his mind and goes on a violent rampage beating up another employee, he is subsequently fired. He decides to take vengeance by organising a full on heist and having the same bank robbed by three blind men as no one will suspect them. The film was quite appreciated when it released.
The detailed plot was as follows:-

Obsessive and temperamental bank manager Vijay Singh Rajput (Amitabh Bachchan) loses his job for badly beating up a bank clerk who tried to embezzle money. Angered at losing his job he plots revenge on the bank by intending to stage a heist. He employs three blind men – Vishwas (Akshay Kumar), a blind person who has the power of the sixth sense, Elias (Paresh Rawal) and Arjun (Arjun Rampal) — when, after passing by school for the blind, he understands that blind people can be trained to do things like sighted people. He blackmails and enlists the help of Neha (Sushmita Sen) who is a teacher at the school to train the trio to do the seemingly impossible heist. He chose blind people because they, as thieves, would never be suspected as noone would believe blind people can rob a bank.

The bank robbery is successful, with the jewels safely captured by the three. However, in the process of robbing the bank, Elias’s face is exposed, captured in footage and prompting citywide posters with his face. Meanwhile, Mr. Rajput anxiously tries to extort information from Vishwas and Arjun regarding the jewels and their location. Unable to answer, as they did not collect the items, they try to defer the answer by changing subjects. Ultimately, it is revealed that Elias is the one with complete knowledge of the box’s belongings. Meanwhile, tensions rise between Rajput and Neha; the latter resists the abusive nature of Rajput and his obnoxious harassing of Vishwas and Arjun. Arjun confesses his love to Neha, who reveals that she is associated in the plot only for the well-being of her younger brother, Rahul, who has been kidnapped by Rajput.

In a furious attempt, the police try to locate Elias. Elias lands up at Rajput’s place after getting drunk. Rajput tries several ways to force Elias into revealing the location of the box. Unable to generate an answer, he slams Elias, who falls on the ground and injures his eyes, causing bleeding. Even in this scenario, Rajput tries to get the information, but Vishwas and Arjun resist and claim that they will reveal the location if Elias is treated by paramedics. Rajput sends them to get Dr. Siddiqui. Vishwas senses that Elias is in danger and Arjun and Vishwas double back to the training center to save him. Rajput starts to harass Elias by tickling him to force him to reveal the answer.

In the action, Elias falls off the balcony and dies. Unable to bear the shock of the death, Neha pulls a gun on Rajput and threatens to reveal everything to the police if he does not leave her and the other two alone. Rajput notifies Neha that all these acts were done under her training, and he is spotless. Unable to bear this fact, Neha shoots herself, just as Vishwas and Arjun return after hearing loud screams.

Both men gang up on Rajput and try to attack him. Once Rajput realises that the men are ignorant about the jewels, he starts shooting them. The police arrive, and confusion ensues. Vishwas and Arjun come out and claim that Rajput is abusing them while he claims that there is a big conspiracy involving the two men, Neha and Elias. Unable to believe that blind men can ransack a bank and amidst Rajput’s impassioned defence, the police start getting suspicious. In the heat of defending himself, Rajput reveals that he had sent over Elias, thus confessing his crime.
In the end, Rajput has been locked away. Vishwas and Arjun decide to take care of Rahul and ultimately find the jewels – they were hidden in Elias’ musical instrument.

This would appear as the typical Hindi film end where the evil man ends up in jail. However, old timers may be remembering the curious case of Bandini having two endings being shot. As told in Bioscope ki Baaten on Vividh Bharti’s pitara programme long back Bimalda could not decide what end to give the movie. One option was to send Nutan’s character to hear new beau played by Dharmendra and the other was for her to go to her old love Ashok Kumar. As per announcer Kamal Sharma who hosted it as per my memory, Bimalda shot both the endings and showed it to a selected audience (perhaps the distributors??) who decided that the ending where She goes to side of the ailing Ashok Kumar would be more apt.

However in this movie’s case, the film makers had another ending in mind which was released in the overseas version! In the overseas viewers version, Rajput bribes the cop (Aditya Pancholi) and is set free, in return to get him his share and gets his manager Bhandari (Ajit Vachani) arrested. Vishwas and Arjun are sitting in a train (waiting for it to depart) and Rajput is standing on the platform with a smile on his face. He then warns them that “A dangerous game is about to begin”, after which Vishwas and Arjun both draw their guns, and the film ends.

Perhaps the film makers felt that overseas audience would better accept the corrupt angle while also leaving room for a sequel which never happened. Obviously, the alternate ending overseas version was longer in length too.

Interestingly, when the movie released, the pirated movies would often come via the Dubai route and in India, people going to cinemas and watching it at home were seeing the different endings! The movie was a big hit. I especially loved the way Sushmita Sen matched up to Amitabh Bachchan during her very effective role. Its sad that we have got to see so less of her in films. Bollywood, She hasn’t been seen since Chingaari (2006). Are you listening??

Before, I come to the chosen song itself, I must mention a very curious case of P-stats for the song. One man who “appears” as if He is yet to make his debut on the blog as far as one can see has not yet made his debut on the blog is making his debut with this song post. What’s interesting is that He’s making his debut on the blog as a singer, a composer as well as what he’s most known as – a Lyricist! Another interesting thing is that his co-composers in the song are a well known composer duo as well as a talented, now sadly deceased, solo composer. So this song for which he has written the lyrics has four composers! That’s quite rare must say!! I was surprised when I first discovered this and had to get hold of the “record” i.e. the CD to confirm the same! This gentleman has not only been a singer, composer and lyricist but also contributed to films as a dialogue writer as well as an actor!
You can see the CD for the credits here on Amazon.

I hope I have made you curious about the identity of the artist! You’ve probably heard some songs of his. He’s known for reviving Bambaiyya style songs in films like Ghulam (1998) and Satya (1998). For many years he was in demand for his Bambaiyya lyrics! His name is of course Nitin Raikwar.

How he came to write probably his biggest hit which kick started his lyricist career is a quite interesting incident. The year was 1996. Actor and filmmaker Neeraj Vora recommended that he go and meet ‘Mr Perfectionist’ Aamir Khan. Aamir was shooting on the sets of Ghulam at Sanpada in Navi Mumbai. He needed someone to write some funny shayaris for a character in his next film Sarfarosh. When Nitin reached there he found that due to some technical slag the whole unit was on standby while it was being rectified. Seeing Aamir free, Nitin went up to him and requested him to give a listen to one of the songs he had written. Aamir heard it and immediately called the director Vikram Bhatt. They both found the song unusual but nice. That song which got included in the movie was ‘Aati Kya Khandala’ which became a super duper hit (It was sung by Aamir himself with Alka Yagnik. Its not yet on the blog and I’m reserving it for a future post by me. Me. Me. Peevsie’s mom and other’s please note 😀 ). This song will probably feature in any playlist of Bambaiyya Hindi songs.

He was to follow it up with many hits. One of these is already on our blog. That is the famous Apun Bola Tu Meri Laila from Josh (2000) which has already had a post by Peevsie’s mom nearly 6 years back on 20th August here:-

In the tagging it has got miscredited to Sameer (who also wrote for the movie) and thus it became his “secret debut” on the blog (the writeup does mention him in one place!). The correctness of the credit can be easily seen on the CD here

Some of his other popular songs include Excuse Me Kya Re (from Style 2001) and Khallas from RGV’s Company (2002). He penned for many more movies being sought out for the Bambaiyya flavour. He was also called for children’s movies like Chhota Chetan (1998) and Jajantaram Mamantaram (2003).

He talked about all this in a 2017 interview with Mid Day.
To quote from it:-

Writing in tapori language was a skill that Raikwar developed after he moved to Mumbai from Pune in 1987. By then, he had already tried his hand at singing in orchestras, something his father wanted him to do since he was a successful show organiser. “But I didn’t see myself singing in orchestras all my life. I was aware of the risk and struggle involved in Bollywood, but I was adamant to make it,” he says. With little money to spend, Raikwar’s story reads like that of so many others who move to Mumbai from smaller towns to try their luck. “When a man is struggling, he spends time with people who are like him. So I would sit at chai tapris and talk to rickshawallas, drivers and daily wage labourers. Because I’m talkative and an extrovert by nature, I could strike up a conversation with just about anyone. That’s how I picked up the slang,” he says. Even when he didn’t have projects, Raikwar would write and seek feedback from his friends, some of whom were already working in the film industry as supporting actors. And it’s through their assistance that he finally met Anil Kapoor on the sets of Ladla. “I consider that the turning point in my life. Anil Kapoor felt I had potential and introduced me to directors and filmmakers,” he says. Raikwar’s first song was Teri Tirchi Nazar Main Hai Jaadoo for Anil Kapoor-starrer Loafer in 1996. But it was Aati Kya Khandala that earned him fame like no other. In fact, it helped him bag a Shah Rukh Khan film soon after. “I remember writing Apun Bola in 15 minutes after I heard the script. I wanted it to reflect Goan culture so I included words like kokum curry. You’ll also find words like ‘hoinga’ and ‘karenga’, just the way a Catholic aunty would say them,” he says.

In 2014, Raikwar had to put all work on the backburner for two years due to an illness. It began with bouts of headache, and he was later diagnosed with subdural hematoma of the brain. “The clots had to be removed through surgery. For a long time, I couldn’t work because of the illness. I’m fine now, and hope to get back to what I do best,” he says.

“I think what worked for me at that point was the novelty factor. People dig variety. For instance, we may love our vada pav, but when the burger made an entry in early 2000, we started queuing up for it. It’s the same with songs,” he says. These days, Raikwar is working on his debut album for which he has collaborated with Shrikant Ahire, one of Maharashtra’s foremost shadow dancers. He plans to release a single from it next month. The song is called Khan Sahab Apne Ladke Ko Sambhal. “I thought I’d write in a manner that people identify with. I can’t write in a flowery and larger-than-life way. It’s not me.”

For some reason, the album and song are yet to release though the 2017 interview suggested it would happen soon. No other work from him has come too as far as I can see.

Coming to the song post, It’s a very danceable song composed by our composer ‘quartet’ of Nitin Raikwar, Aadesh Shrivastav and Jatin-Lalit. Joining Nitin Raikwar sing in the movie are Aadesh Shrivastav himself and Actor/Singer Arun Bakshi who you all stalwarts probably already know about from his multiple movies. Written in his usual tapori style, the song for me at its core is quite a philosophical song asking one to not worry about our troubles and that we will one day have everything we want. The song has a nice uplifting mood to it that I love to listen when feeling a bit down sometimes. The feelings of the song somehow remind me of Manna Dey’s rendition of ‘Door Tera Gaon Ho, Thake Tere Paaon Hon Chalta Chal’ from movie Fashionable Wife (1959) which too I am fond of.

Here is the song for you all Bambaiyya Hindi lovers:-

Its picturised on Akshay Kumar, Arjun and Paresh Rawal. The song had become quite an anthem in those days just like today we have Apna Time Aayega but probably in a larger way. A view of the youtube comments of the song will prove that.

Karan Arora says, “My dad is a GM in maruti showroom now……. But 15 years ago…we had a financial crisis…He had to work as a driver under an advocate….we use to live on rent in one room of a govt. Apartment. I was 5 years old At that time.. Jab bhi main dukhi hota tha….he always use to say ” fatela jeb sil jayega…. Jo chahega mil jayega….. Tere bhi din ayenge chhote…. ” to encourage me… But us time esa lagta tha ki future hi nahi hai hamaara…but here we are… Living happily now… So I’m just sharing my story with you guys to encourage everyone who’s struggling in life right now….. Abhi main tum log ko kehta hoon “fatela jeb sil jayega… Jo chahega mil jayega…. Tere bhi din ayenge chhote”……bs rukne ka nahi…. Chalte raho…. 💙💙💙”

Saurabh Mahambrey says, “If three blind guys can sing about a better tomorrow and successful rob a bank …. You can do anything 😂😂😂”

Enceladus says, “2019 anyone 😂 this song is for eternal struggle”

Shubh Patil says, “Best way to get rid of anxiety attacks.. 2019 still here😁😁”

CRT says, “Whenever I feel down, I remember this song. And half of my tension goes away 😃”

Ansh Patil says, “Iconic song.. Amazing movie.. Specially Paresh Rawal rocks”

Shubham Hatekar says, “This song encourages me more than “Apna Time ayega”. Anyone feels same.”

I certainly feel the same. Stay motivated and keep going. You are stronger than the sum of all your troubles. Never forget that.

Blog Day : 3973 Post No. : 15059

Today’s song is from the film Aabshaar aka Waterfall-1953.

To me, songs from the fifty’s decade work like a breeze of fresh air or a cup of hot filter coffee. Discussing songs from the 30s and the 40s continuously gives me a feeling of being a very old man which, actually, I am ! But then, being so and feeling so, are two different things. Toying with a song from the 50s takes me back to my college days. If the song is of Kishore, Sugar gets added to the Coffee further.

Listening to songs of Kishore Kumar from his early years is truly a feast. His song from film ‘Aandolan’-1951 is my eternal favourite. Many times, when I am in a depression, tension, sad mood or simply bored, I like to listen to Vintage songs of Kishore Kumar. For this purpose I have his songs on my Mobile phone itself. His early film songs like Funtoosh, Bahaar, Paying Guest, New Delhi, Begunah etc are unparallelled. In fact, I had run a series of 21 songs under the title ” Vintage Kishore ” from 17-12-2013 to 18-1-2014, on this Blog.

Film Aabshaar-53 was made by Globe Pictures and was produced and directed by Hasrat Lucknowi. When the film’s shooting started, Ghulam Hyder was the composer. He recorded 3 songs of Pakistani singer Munawar Sultana. After partition GH used to come to India to compose music to films, and at the same time, he would compose for Pakistani films too. However, his films like Shahida-49, Beqasoor-50,Akeli-51 and Bheegi Palken-52 were all flops.

While doing music of Aabshaar in India, he was also doing film Gulnar of Pakistan. Meanwhile his health worsened and he abandoned film Aabshaar and left for Pakistan to complete Gulnar. Film Gulnar was released on 2-11-1953 and Ghulam Hyder died on 9-11-1953 !

After he left, the film was given to Bhola Shreshtha and Mohd. Shafi. Bhola composed 3 songs and Shafi did 2 songs, which included today’s Kishore song. His other song was by Asha Bhosle. Besides all this jhamela in Music, film Aabshaarearned a place in Hindi Film History, for being the First ever film to start the system of ” Guest artistes”, mentioned in credits. Film Aabshaar had the cast of Nimmi, Raaj Kumar, Lalita Pawar, kuldip Kaur, Iftikhar, Tiwari and others. It had Guest artistes- AshokKumar, Shyama, Om Prakash and Nigar Sultana. The film was released in Minerva Theatre on 2-10-1953.

The Hero, Raaj kumar was still a novice, this film being onlynhis third film. he started with Rangeeli-52, then came Anmol Sahara-52 and now this film. He was kulbhushan Pandit in real life. Before coming to films, he was a Police Inspector in Bombay police force. It is believed that he was removed from Police force because a criminal died during his investigation by Raaj Kumar.

RAAJ KUMAR ( 8-10-1926 to 3-7-1996 ) – the dashing Hero known for his Dialoguebazi. In Hindi cinema after Sohrab Modi,it was Raaj kumar whose dialogues were popular. He was famous for his favourite word ” Jaani “. The other day,while going through the discussions on RMIM group of Google I found an interesting question,” Why Raaj kumar is called Jaani,when he never used this word in his film dialogues ? “. On checking thoroughly,one found that it was only in the film Saudagar and Tiranga,Raajkumar had used the word Jaani ,only once each. Thats all.
Then why this word became his identity ? The answer is this word was used by Raajkumar in private conversations and interviews very frequently,that is why !

Raaj Kumar was Extra ordinary, in the sense that most of the time he behaved unlike other stars.

He kept his personal life in close wraps. He believed in keeping personal and professional lives separate. He sent his children to Boarding schools to keep them away from films,to get the best education,and not to become like other star children.
He had built a bungalow on Worli sea face and no one except his family was ever allowed inside. Whenever he left for work,a bunch of high pedigreed Dogs used to see him off till the Gate and welcome him on his arrival. He loved his Dogs very much. He used to say ” Insan kutta ban sakta hai lekin kutta Insaan nahi ban sakta. Ye bahot achhi baat hai.”

In any Filmi party, he used to carry his own bottles. He never ever asked any special favours or concessions from any Producer. He was very punctual and one hour afternoon siesta was a must every day. This used to be one of the conditions in his work contracts with the producers. His name was never involved with any actress.

Raajkumar acted in 73 films from Rangilee-52 to God and Gun-1995.

The cast of film Aabshaar-53 was a mix of old fading artistes and new generation stars. one of them was the daredevil Kuldip Kaur. She was born sometime in 1927 and brought up like a princess. Her spoiled Sardar husband wanted his wife to be like a modern westernized lady. He wanted his wife to learn swimming and rub shoulders with the club-going English elite based in Lahore and Amritsar.Once exposed to the club culture, Kuldip Kaur also started getting a taste of its dark side.

Since Lahore was a film city, Kuldip Kaur started dreaming about becoming a film actress. According to one story, Kuldip Kaur started admiring the professional qualities of actor Pran Nath, who was in film acting in Lahore since 1940, when he successfully performed the role of a hero in Punjabi film “Yamla Jutt” (The Simple Peasant).

By July and August of 1947, communal violence erupted into a full-fledged exercise in ethnic cleansing, with Muslims on one side and Sikhs and Hindus on the other. Both Lahore and Amritsar were engulfed in the worst sectarian violence in recent history.
Both Pran and Kuldip Kaur were made to leave Lahore in a jiffy, leaving virtually every belonging behind. Her own village being right on the border was also not peaceful. So Kuldip Kaur left straight for Bombay. According to one story, in order to impress Pran, Kuldip Kaur
decided to bring Pran’s stranded car from Lahore to Bombay. In a gesture of unprecedented daredevilry, she travelled from the safety of Amritsar to Lahore and drove Pran’s car first to Amritsar and then all the way to Bombay, where she handed over
the keys to a surprised but grateful Pran.

After leaving for Bombay, Kuldip Kaur’s contact with her parents and in-laws got diminished. On arrival in Bombay, Kuldip Kaur made up her mind to plunge headlong into the film industry. She was prepared to act in Hindi/Urdu as well as Punjabi films. The experts of film industry were of the opinion that her large piercing eyes and her flat chin made her an ideal choice for the role of a vamp.

The first ranking heroines of the time included Naseem Bano, Madhubala, Nargis, Suraiya and Nutan. Other heroines included Binarai, Shyama, Nimmi, Nirupa Roy, Meena Shori, Nigar Sultana, Veena and Kamini Kaushal. There was a shortage of ladies willing to perform the role of vamps.
One of Kuldip Kaur’s first films was a Punjabi blockbuster “Chaman” (1948). Within the same year Kuldip Kaur acted in two Hindi/Urdu films “Ziddi” and “Grahasthi“. All her 1948 films did well. After that she never looked back and went from strength to strength. At one stage Kuldip
Kaur was so busy in her film roles that for a long duration she did not visit Punjab.

In 1949, Kuldip Kaur worked in at least two films “Ek Thi Ladki” and “Kaneez”. “Ek Thi Ladki” was a blockbuster. Music Director Vinod composed some great tunes for this movie. “Kaneez” did not do too well.In 1950, Kuldip Kaur acted in two great musical Hindi movies “Samadhi” and “Adhi Raat” and did two Punjabi movies “Madaari” and “Chhai”. 1951 was a great year for her: she played the roles of vamps in six movies – “Stage”, “Rajput”, “Nai Zindagi”, “Ek Nazar”, “Afsana” and “Mukhra”. Her role in film “Afsana” received critical acclaim.

1952 was another great year for Kuldip Kaur. She worked in four movies – “Shisham”, “Nau Bahar”, “Baiju Bawra” and “Anjaam”. Again her role was highly praised in what became an all-time classic, “Baiju Bawra”. In 1953 again, Kuldip Kaur had four films – “Mashooka”, “Baaz”, “Anarkali” and “Aabshar”. Of these, “Anarkali” was a super hit and her role stole the limelight. 1954 proved another great year. She was featured in three movies – “Lal Pari”, “Gul Bahar” and “Daak Babu”. 1955 was one of her busiest professional years. She played the bad girl’s role in “Teer Andaz”, “Miss Coca Cola”, “Mast Qalandar” and “Jashan”.

In 1956, things slowed down a bit. She worked in two films, but none was released. Two of Kuldip Kaur starrers spilled over into the new year and were released in 1957. These were “Sheroo” and “Ek Saal”. In 1958 Kuldip Kaur had her roles in two films “Sahara” and “Panchyat”. In 1959, she did three films – “Pyaar Ka Rishta”, “Mohar” and “Jagir”. Out of these, one film, “Mohar,” was a great musical. Its music composed by Madan Mohan was simply outstanding. When Kuldip had fewer Hindi films in hand, she worked in Punjabi films.
1960 started as a reasonably good year for Kuldip Kaur. She had a Hindi film, “Maa Baap,” and a Punjabi film, “Yamla Jutt”.But during this very year, her life was cut short when she got some thorns in her feet and legs and she pulled those out by herself. True to her character of a daredevil woman, she did not seek medical advice immediately. Her sores became not only septic, but she contracted tetanus too, which was then incurable.

Kuldip Kaur died on 3rd February 1960. She worked in 69 films. ( adapted, with thanks, from apna.org )

Everything about this film seems to be special, including 3 MDs. Today’s song is composed by Mohd. Shafi. His name may not be very well known because mostly he worked behind the scene in helping Naushad in composing music. However, he too gave music to some films. Composer Mohd. Shafi ( 25-12-1925 to 30-4-1980 ) was one of those talented artistes of Hindi Film Music who was only used by others and never got enough credit for his work.He is honoured as “The original Arranger” in the industry.He was an excellent Sitar player. He started with Imperial Film company-where he played Bulbul Tarang. In 1937 he went to Calcutta, joined New Theatres and played Sitar in films Kapal Kundala-39 and Aandhi-40, as an assistant to Pankaj Mullick and K.C.Dey. He played sitar in film “Ujala”-42. In this film, the Hero-Prithviraj kapoor was shown as a Sitar player, hence the expertise of Shafi was fully utilised in this film.

Starting with film ‘Haqdaar’-46, he gave music to 19 Hindi films and 2 Marathi films. He worked with Naushad, as his assistant and Arranger, for 14 years.He was considered a ‘Dada’ in Background music.He gave Back ground music to about 70 films( for Naushad and others). For Mughal E Azam, K. Asif used to send his personal car to fetch him to studio. It was Shafi who gave the first break to Suman Hemmadi(Kalyanpur) in Mangu-54 and Hemlata in unreleased film Iraada.

Shafi had bought his first car when he was just 15 year old. He had a posh flat in Shivaji Park area of Dadar in Bombay. In the end , everything was gone. He had helped the families of Shakeel Badayuni and Ghulam Mohammed after their deaths. However in his last difficult days , except Rafi, no one came for his help. In the final few months, his memory had gone. His Begum ruefully said,” Good that he does not remember anything. All took his advantage and gave him nothing. There were more things to forget than to remember ! ”

It is said that the entire music of Sohni Mahiwal-58 was done by him. Naushad was sick during this period and did not attend even one recording. “Do hanson ka joda”and “Dhoondho dhoondho re saajna” Gunga Jamuna-61 were his creations. He used to give tunes to many composers too-whoever asked for help.

Let us now enjoy the song sung by Kishore Kumar, a couple of unidentified male voices and chorus.

“Insaaf Ka Taraazu”(1980) was produced and directed by B R Chopra for B R Films, Bombay. This movie was inspired from an American movie called “Lipstick” (1976). The movie was a rape and revenge movie. Many people who thronged to watch “Insaaf Ka Taraazu”(1980) were attracted to the movie hall because of this fact.

The movie had Zeenat Aman, Raj Babbar (new discovery), Deepak Parashar (new discovery), Padmini Kolhapure, Shreeram Lagoo, Simi Garewal, Iftekhar, Jagdish Raj, Vijay Sharma, Prem Sagar, Sunil Dhawan, Om Shivpuri, Sujit Kumar, Yunus Parvez, Sudha Shivpuri etc in it, with Hiralal in a guest appearance and Dharmendra in a special appearance.

“Insaaf Ka Taraazu”(1980) had four songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

The details of the songs from the movie that have been covered earlier :-

1 Insaaf ka taraazu 8774 27-Sep-13
2 Log aurat ko faqat jism samajh lete hain 13021 8-Mar-17
3 Hazaar khwaab haqeeqat ka roop le lenge 14913 8-Mar-19

The three songs that have been covered so far were serious songs all penned by Sahir Ludhianvi. The fourth and final song under discussion is a light hearted happy teasing song picturised on Padmini Kolhapure, Zeenat Aman (playing her sister)and Deepak Parashar (playing her would be jeeja ji). Sahir Ludhianvi demonstrates that he was capable of penning superb light hearted non jhonk songs as well.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Hemlata and Mahendra Kapoor.

With this song, all the four songs are covered and “Insaaf Ka Taraazu”(1980) joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.
