To keep up our New Year resolution of one movie getting Yippeeeed per day I found that the 1982 Manmohan Desai produced & directed “Desh Premee” falls short by a song to achieve YIPPEEHOOD.

The movie had six songs (referred myswar.com for this information) of which the blog has 5 songs. The songs were penned by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi -Pyare were the music directors. The movie had one song by Mohd. Rafi- his last in a Manmohan Desai movie (that is the left over song). Manmohan Desai with Laxmi-Pyare and Mohd. Rafi had created a magical era of Bollywood music. This movie had Shammi Kapoor in a supporting role with the Bengali superstar of that era- Uttam Kumar; but both didn’t have any song to lip-sync. The movie payed tribute to Mehmood’s Hydrabadi- character from “Gumnaam” and we had Amitabh Bachchan dressing up; as Mehmood had done in Gumnaam and singing “Khatoon Ki Khidmat Me” in a Hyderabadi lingo in Kishore Kumar’s voice. Laxmikant’s voice was used for both Prem Chopra and Amitabh in the song “Gore Nahin Hum Kaale Sahi”; the only time he sang in movies (credits of the movie shows his name as Laxmikant Karpe.) This was one movie where Parveen Babi didn’t sing a song. Though it was an “Average” movie everywhere else it was a “Golden Jubilee” at Hyderabad’s Ramakrishna (I remember that as the movie hall where I saw Sholay for the first time in my life). The film paid tribute to Mohd. Rafi and Uttam Kumar both of whom died two years before the movie released. It’s censor cerificate has the date 6-3-1982 and it was released on 23-04-1982.

So here is the last song. It is filmed in a Basti- Bharat Nagar; trust Manji (thats how Amitabh refers to Manmohan Desai in his interviews) to make things very clear to the public. It is shown to be a refugee camp of sorts and has Premnath playing a Nair- South Indian, Shammi Kapoor a Sardar- North Indian of course, Uttam Kumar a Bengali- Indian from east, and Parikshit Sahni representing western India and a muslim for added effect; things cannot be more explicit than this- right? The song preaches to love our fellow Indians and respect the ideals of the nation.
Foot Note: just saw the title sequence of the movie and I recommend it for the thought behind how Amitabh’s blood is shown dripping from his leg and “Inquilaab Zindabad” is formed. Hatsoff to MANJI.

koi baahar waalaa
apne ghar se

deewaanon hosh karo o o
mere desh premiyon

desh premiyon
mere desh premiyon
aapas mein prem karo

All numbers are unique unto themselves – inasmuch as each number has its own claim to fame just by being what it is. And but for the imagination and fancies applied by our minds, which at times picks on certain characteristics and binds some special stature to some of them, all these numbers would be as interesting, or for that matter disinteresting, as any other number. Let me quote the instance of a number that has now become famous as the ‘Hardy – Ramanujan Number’. This anecdote is attributed to a conversation in or about 1919 (wow, ninety seven years ago), that happened in London. Indian mathematician Srinivas Ramanujan, who was based in London for some time, was ill and confined to his bed at his residence. His friend, Godfrey Hardy, another mathematician (who had invited and arranged for Ramanujan’s travel etc. to London), came visiting him. The initial conversation was about Hardy’s journey to see Ramanujan. He mentioned off hand that the number of the taxicab in which he had travelled, was 1729 – for all intents a most uninteresting and boring number. To this comment, Ramanujan replied that ‘1729’ was a very special number. In fact it is the smallest number that can be represented as the sum of two cubes, in two different ways. (I am avoiding the calculation details; interested readers can google this for more details).

Greetings to all Atulites on the celebration today, of the 63rd Republic Day of the Indian Union.

There is an interesting history and facts behind this date. After the massacre at the Jalianwala Bagh in 1919, the call for complete independence from the British rule strengthened, especially led by the veteran leaders such as Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Aurobindo Ghosh and Bipin Chandra Pal, who advocated explicit Indian independence from the Empire. On 26th Jan, 1930, the Indian National Congress adopted the Purna Swaraj declaration, i.e. complete independence for India.

The name Vasant Desai brings to memory a long list of songs rooted in the classical and folk traditional music of India. On this blog, today we have another celebration. With this post, the blog now carries 100 songs composed by Vasant Desai. In a career that lasted more than four decades, Vasant Desai was selective in the associations he made and never strayed away from his musical foundations. He scored the music for less than fifty films during this time. Thirty of these films are represented on this blog.

Earlier decades of Indian independence (1950s and 1960s) saw much enthusiasm for nation building in public life as well as in movies. And Soviet Union style socialism was considered the way to progress. Many movies were made on the theme of nation building in those days. and these movies naturally had songs to inspire people.

On 15 August, 1988, Indian TV audience were glued to their TVs to watch the telecast of Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s address to the nation from Red Fort, Delhi. There was no question of people going for their remotes and watching any other TV programme for the simple reason that there was only one TV channel in India and that was the government owned Doordarshan. And TV remotes were not even an accessory with TVs sold in India those days.

One of the biggest miracles of India has got to be its cultural diversity. A people with so many different languages, so many different customs, different religions still co-exist next to each other and are unified under one umbrella – the flag of India.

There are several patriotic songs in Hindi movies. Most of these songs were created after independence, when India had already acquired independence. Creating patriotic songs in an independent nation is easy, but just imagine the case when India was not yet an independent nation.
