Hullo to all in Atuldom

Sunday was a learning experience. I visited the encyclopaedia of atuldom. I realised that the wealth of knowledge is not only because he has seen Indian movies but has also read about them. And I was amazed by the system he uses for writing a post. I took the liberty of asking for his collection of The HFGK. And I felt humbled that we in atuldom are celebrating 10900 and here is someone who has volumes on all the songs from the time Hindi films were born. But of course Hamrazji’s work of passion is different from what Atul has set out to do. So that brings us back to the main question. Is atulsongaday atulji’s passion or a vividh bharati for all of us where we send our farmaishes. I have lost count of the number of times I have raised this question. And Atulji, very sportingly just posts one more of our farmaishes :).

Recently I have requested Sudhir Sir to find a rare Rafi song for me. It is a song which actually brought me to to this blog. It is a non-film song which nobody seems to know anything about. Three years ago I was desperately searching for the full lyrics of this prayer poem ‘Khud jiyo auron ko bhi jeene do’. I searched extensively on the net but could not find the full lyrics. I had no inkling at that time that Rafi sahab had sung this song. But some site (I do not remember which one) had this information that this prayer/poem was by Rafi sahab and it was picturized in a film by Films Division of India, where none other than Prithvi Raj Kapoor is singing it in front of a classroom. There after I searched for it high and dry,but the result was always zilch. Now I have no way of verifying if the information about the song is strictly correct or not. But it was a start and unfortunately also the end of it. All this time this thing has always been in the back of my mind, which comes to fore from time to time. Like it did the other day when I made that request to Sudhir Sir.

Today (8 september) is an important date for music lovers of Hindi movie songs. It was on this date in 1933 that Asha Bhonsle was born. Today she turns 79. And she has been giving playback in HIndi movies since 1948. So she has been a playback singer for the last sixtyfour years ! Simply unbelievable.

If Akshay Kumar movies of 1990s tended to have the word “Khilaadi” in them , then Sheikh Mukhtaar’s movies of 1950s and 1960s used to have the title “Ustaad” in them.

“Mera Naam Joker” (1970) was an ambitious movie of Raj Kapoor which unfortunately failed big time at the box office when it was released. The box office debacle was so big that it took Raj Kapoor quite some time to recover from it, and when he recovered, he had made a clean break from the past, in the sense that his musical team was totally revamped.

Songs and dances play a very important role in Hindi movies. In olden days, lead actors were needed to sing and dance. Once playback singing began, actors were thankfully no longer required to sing their own songs, but they were still required to dance. That is especially true for actresses and proficiency in dancing was an important skill for them.

“Nazraanaa” (1961) is a movie which saw a rare combination of Rafi singing for Raj Kapoor, with Ravi composing the music. And what superb songs this movie had !
