Hullo Atuldom

“Andaaz Apna Apna” which released in November 1994 was a comedy, laugh riot, and a ‘comedy of errors’ which had nothing to do with the original ‘comedy of errors’. I am a huge fan of this movie and so is every member of my family. There is always a smile playing on the lips, waiting to turn into a burst of laughter, whenever we discover the movie on any channel. The comedy was in the scenes and dialogues. The movie had stand-out characters that have stayed in public memory after all the intervening 27 years.

Think of Deven Verma being hoodwinked by his ‘get-rich-quick-scheming’ son Aamir Khan (playing Amar) and you smile or grin. Specially when the son tells the father “main aaj bahut khush hoon” and the father replies “tu jab bhi khush hua hai mera kuch na kuch nuksaan hua hai” and proceeds to list a few incidents. Then we have the barber Jagdeep getting similar treatment from his son Salman Khan (playing Prem). The scene that happens between Mehmood (who plays a casting agent) and Jagdeep is another standout. One thing about this comedy movie was we had seasoned players like Deven Verma, Jagdeep, Mehmood and Aamir Khan who (imho) thought making faces (contorting is not the right word) and Salman Khan who thought saying ‘aila’ in a squeaky tone was comedy. The ladies were spared as they didn’t need to be comic as also the father character of Paresh Rawal. Shakti Kapoor’s character ‘crime-master Gogo’ was more comic than scary as was Paresh Rawal’s Teja (character). Crime-master Gogo’s oneliner (Takiya kalaam) “aaya hoon kuch na kuch leke jaoonga” used to be oft-quoted in my family. The story tried to create comedy by giving the male lead actors filmy names of Amar and Prem trying to pay tribute to the 70s classic.
To have an idea about the movie we should read this post which was written by SURPRISE! (re-visit the post to find out)

Tushar Bhatia was the music director of this movie which had 6 songs. As per this article two songs were deleted from the movie to give it a better look (I suppose). Majrooh Sultanpuri was the lyricist and Asha Bhonsle, Abhijeet, S P Balasubramanyam, were the playback singers with a few new names Behrouz Chatterjee, Mangal Singh, Vicky Mehta which were heard for the first time in Bollywood.

Today’s song has Salman Khan serenading the millionaire, heiress Raveena with a song and dance in the middle of the night but with a tiny “dholak” instead of a guitar or violin (as is the general norm for this kind of situations). It is only at the end of the song that Salman (Prem) realizes that the lady with him is Karisma and not Raveena. We have Amar (Aamir Khan) first thinking that Raveena is the one who is responding to Prem but his fears are laid to rest when he sees Raveena outside his window. Then we have Shehzad Khan (a spitting image of his father Ajit) and Viju Khote (playing helpers around the household) also enjoying this midnight entertainment.

Incidentally, the girls switch names, in the movie, to test prospective grooms so Karisma Kapoor who is the actual Raveena (daughter of the millionaire) introduces Raveena Tandon as Karisma (who is the daughter of the millionaire’s munim). So, there is a bit of confusion in the minds of Amar and Prem once the girls reveal their true names and identity. Hope the situation is clear and we now get on to the song which is sung by Asha (Tai) and SPB (Balu Sir)

With this post we also wish Lolo on turning a year younger. Lolo which is the pet name of Karisma Kapoor, the first person from the fifth generation of the Kapoor Khandan to step into Bollywood and carve a niche for herself. She made a name for herself enacting a variety of roles from plain inane to high voltage emotional characters. We saw her play a serious character in the song which was posted two years back. Today we will see her with a cute and endearing smile.

Hullo Atuldom

Today is the first birthday of Balu sir after he left us due to Covid related complications. The singer, actor, music director, dubbing artist, television presenter and film producer Sripathi Panditaradhyula Balasubrahmanyam a.k.a S.P. Balasubrahmanyam would have turned 75.

He was a huge bhakt of Mohd. Rafi. There are various video available in the public domain where he has stated this.
Last year our Nahmji had poured her heart into this post when the news of Balu sir’s passing broke on the news channels. And our Pradeepji had written his feelings in the comments to this post. Those were the feelings of practically all his fans.

But I don’t want to make this into a sad tribute as Balu Sir was a very lively person. He was a live-wire in his shows and performances on stage. He had a great hold on his art. And he was an automatic choice for giving playback when Southern superstar Kamal Haasan made his debut in Hindi films.

He played the hero’s friend (who is a singer) in the 1981 remake of the 1953 Telugu hit ‘Pakkinti Ammayi’. The remake was also called ‘Pakkinti Ammayi’. And no marks for guessing that these were the Telugu remakes of the Bengali original ‘Pasher Bari’ which was the inspiration for ‘Padosan’. ‘Pakkinti Ammayi’ was possibly Balu Sir’s acting debut. Before that he had done guest appearances in a movie or two. Hope that explains why I have listed him as an actor in the opening para. This was not his only acting assignment.

I have seen a Tamil movie in the late ’80s where he played a 40-year-old widower father to a teenage daughter. His was a natural and effortless acting. The highlight of the movie was a song in which he sings the antaras in a single breath. The director of the movie had asked Balu Sir if he could do the entire five minute song in a single breath and the singer was said to have replied that then he would have to find someone else to complete the movie as it was impossible to sing a song of that length in one shot. 🙂

There was one other movie, again in Tamil, where he played a good-natured cop and friendly father to Prabhu Deva. This was the movie with which audiences got to see Prabhu Deva the dancer for the first time and SPB as his father was simply too adorable. And he had acted in many Telugu and Tamil till 2018. He was seen in a few Kannada movies too and one Malayalam movie.

He was the default choice when it came to dubbing Tamil movies into Telugu (and the other way too) for Kamal Haasan till 2010. He had dubbed for Ben Kingsley when Gandhi was released in Telugu. He gave voice for seven characters (including the female character) in the Telugu version of Kamal Haasan’s Dasavathaaram out of the 10 characters that Kamal played.

His work in Hindi films began with “Ek Duje Ke Liye” as we all know and was the preferred voice for Salman Khan in some of his initial movies. And he has sung for many movies the last of which was ‘Chennai Express’ and the dubbed version of ‘Linga” in 2014.

He had hosted and judged the Telugu and Kannada equivalent of Indian Idol.

He was a recipient of Padma Shri (2001), Padma Bhushan (2011) and Padma Vibhushan (announced this year). He has won 6 National awards for Best Singer for songs in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi. He has records for recording 21 songs in a day in Kannada, as also 19 Tamil songs in a day. He is said to have done something similar in Hindi also.

Personally I am a huge fan of this personality and would have loved to post that Tamil song where he has sung the Antaras in a breath. But I am settling for the dubbed version of his song/dance with Prabhu Deva from the dubbed movie ‘Humse Hain Muqabala’. It’s Tamil original was “Kadhalan” (‘Loverboy’ that released in 1994). It had a cast of Nagma, Prabhu Deva, Girish Karnad, Raghuvaran and S P Balasubrahmanyam. It was directed by S. Shankar who has made movies that had a lot of special effects of which we can see samples in the songs of this movie too. A R Rehman was the music composer. The songs for the dubbed Hindi movie were written by P K Mishra. Today’s song is in the voices of Udit Narayan, SPB and his daughter SPB Pallavi. The same trio sang this in the Tamil movie too.

saajan teri chaahaton mein dil mera
kho gaya teri chaahaton mein kho gaya
saajan teri chaahaton mein dil mera
kho gaya ye dil tumhaara ho gaya

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#6)
————————————————
#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #Year-1983 – The year of ‘Himmatwaalaa’
——————————————————————–

We are back for yet another ‘warmer’ summer. Temperatures are already soaring day by day. e are in the midst of the second summer in the ‘pandemic age’. If we compare it to last year’s summer, this year ‘surge of the pandemic’ is decidedly more serious than what it was in the previous year.

For students also, an unusual summer in terms of classes and exams. And that reminds me of the ‘summers’ in my childhood. We would wait for the exams to get over, which would be conducted in March-April. From May it would be vacations till June 7th (or the first or second Monday of June, hope I am correct) when the schools reopened for the next educational year.

The normal planning for the vacations would be to visit grandparents, playing cricket, reading story books, magazines, comics, cricket-samrat’, ‘listening to music on SLBC, ‘Vividh Bharati’ and ‘listening to BBC Khel Samachar etc. on radio’. Watching movies in the nearby city (Akola) would be one more option. Also common in those days were ‘touring talkies’ which would be camping in the season. After a full day of warm summer, one ould enjoy movies in the evening and night shows in these touring talkies which generally would be in open fields.

That was the planning for ‘summer vacations’ but before that we had to go through exams.

When I talk of ‘summer nostalgia’, I cannot forget the summer of the most important year in my life, and that is the year ‘1983’ (educational year 1982-83) when I was in 10th standard and I appeared for the board exams in Mar-1983 (or may be Mar-April-1983).

A crucial year of studies in one’s life according to the general ‘perception’ in our society (in those years, or it is the same even today?) 😊.
However, we were not having those many comforts we have now. There was no TV, no mobile, no internet, no fridge (at our home).
But there was ‘Radio’ or ‘Transistor’ and there were books and newspapers. Other than cricket it was ‘carrom’ ‘badminton’ and other outdoor games etc.

However, my Uncle staying at Koradi (Nagpur) had purchased a ‘Dynora’ ‘b/w’ TV. And India and Pakistan were having a test series. So, somehow, I convinced my parents to allow me to go for few days and watch the matches on TV and come back.

Imagine, on one side all my friends, classmates were tense, and I had bunked my ‘tuitions’ to watch India-Pakistan matches on TV. My tuition teacher asked my parents to please call me back and when I returned from Nagpur, he humbly requested me ‘aata he cricket vagaire soda, ani abhyasaat laksh ghaala’ (forget the cricket now and concentrate on the studies now) And why not he was not even charging me the tuition fees like my other friends.

So, I concentrated on on studies, but still not giving a serious thought to Teacher and Parent’s instructions I continued to at least play half an hour every day and even on examination days, citing the reason of ‘relieving exam stress’ to my parents.

After examinations it was again ‘cricket’ and ‘movies’ too … And when I talk of summer’1983 I cannot forget the movies I watched during the vacation after appearing for the board exams which was like normal exams for me.

Cassette players had already made entry into our colony and a few people possessed them . So, there were songs and movies. Songs of ‘Nikaah’, ‘Disco Dancer’, ‘Himmatwaala’ etc. could be heard anywhere either on radio or ‘tape recorders.’

As a cricket fan, this summer turned out to be the most memorable and unforgettable as Kapil’s Devils clinched the ‘first world cup title’ for India in June’1983.

Given my age that time I was more interested in cricket, movies, books, and study to pass the exams 😊.

Now, when I check the important happenings in our country in that year – 1983 – google had the following results.

● Waiting telephone connections.
● Silk Smitha.
● Khushwant Singh.
● Kapil Dev brings World Cup to India.
● Nellie Massacre tragedy.
● Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale.

Challenges were still there, and the next year 1984 was a crucial year as we are all aware we lost our Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The previous years to 1983 i.e., 1981 & 1982 saw floods playing havoc in Rajasthan, and Saurashtra & Orissa, respectively.

All was lost for the peoples residing there, but life had to find its way, so the people of this country do, from time immemorial – facing challenges – fighting them – and winning over them and re-creating more than what has been lost. ‘To fight back with more strength after all is lost’ is in the blood of the people of this land.

Ah! but one cannot bring back the lives that are lost.

Today, again, we are facing challenges and our ‘warriors’ from different fields of the society are fighting with the pandemic and helping people going far out of the way of what they could be.

The stories of highest sacrifices done by individuals and group of peoples never cease to hit the media and life goes on …

Here is a song, that could better explain the ‘challenge’, we as ‘human’ must overcome and save our people, help them, and ‘rebuild’ them.

‘The dignity’ of ‘humanity’ should be upheld and protected.

If 1983 was the year of filmy ‘Himmatwaalaa’ the year ‘2020’ and ‘2021’ have been the years of the ‘real heroes’, who have shown exemplary courage during the ‘lock-down-1’ and first phase of the pandemic, and during the second and worst phase of the pandemic.

Whether they are frontline health workers, doctors, social workers, non-governmental organizations providing food and shelters to many, migrant labors, small entrepreneurs, or start-ups … all of them have suffered a lot themselves. and have still helped many to stand in this hour of calamity.

The ‘pandemic challenge’ is not over yet and still a lot needs to be done by all collectively…

Today’s song is the song which I like most from this movie ‘Himmatwaalaa-1983’ and Bappi Lahiri has given this different composition among the other ‘dance-romance-dream’ songs in this movie. Same thing applies to the lyricist Indeever who penned this song.

In the movie the song happens when nearby villages have been washed off due to flood and nature’s fury (in the movie it is shown taking place in Gujarat).
The hero of the movie Jeetendra calls a meeting of the youths and motivates them to join him in collectively helping those who have lost their all.
However, the elders in the town did not agree with Jeetendra and try to prevent their kin from joining him.

This song takes place here when Jeetendra give the clarion call to all singing this song. As it happens the people (Arun Govil and many others) respond to his call and joined him in this mission.

Hullo Atuldom

“Saagar” (1985) had a cast of Dimple Kapadia, Rishi Kapoor, Kamal Hasaan, Saeed Jaffery, Nadira, Sharat Saxena, Shafi Inaamdar, Satish Kaushik, Lilliput and Madhur Jaffery. It was directed by Ramesh Sippy and was produced by G P Sippy’s ‘Sippy Films’. It was a vehicle for Dimple’s comeback into Bollywood after her sabbatical brought on by marriage and family life. She was making a comeback after a gap of about 11 years. Her heroes were also her age group so they made an eye-pleasing team.

“Saagar” was a simple love story of a rich boy falling in love with a ‘not-so-well off girl’ who helps her father run a tavern in a fishing village . She has a childhood friend (Kamal) who loves her but cannot get himself to profess it. Into this village the rich boy (Rishi) walks in, befriends Raja (Kamal) and falls in love with Mona (Dimple). There is also friendship between the three, almost reminiscent of Raj Kapoor’s “Sangam”. We have Ravi’s (Rishi) grandmother playing the spoke in the cartwheel of the lovers. We also have one friend sacrificing his love for the happiness of the other two.

All-in-all nothing spectacular just that the movie was entertaining and we had the lead actors giving good performances. The songs were written by Javed Akhtar, and RD Burman was the composer. He had Kishore Kumar (who won a Filmfare award for “Saagar kinaare”), Lata Mangeshkar, S P Balasubramaniam, Asha Bhonsle and Shailendra Singh singing the songs in the movie.

I am writing this post to wish the superstar of South Indian cinema on his 66th birthday. He has been in the industry from a young age. He began as a child-actor and I have written a brief about him in this post of mine four years ago. So let us get directly to the song and marvel at this actor’s ability to emote with his eyes.

The song is sung by SPB and is a party song which is a celebration of the characters birthday. It has Nadira and Lilliput who are aware of Raja’s feelings and Saeed Jaffery and others who are oblivious. The song also begins with RD’s trademark of making music with unusual instruments; here he has used a comb.

Wishing Kamalhassan all health and happiness today on his 66th birthday.


Song-Sach mere yaar hai (Saagar)(1985) Singer-S P Balasubrahmaniam, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-R D Burman

The great playback singer of south india left for heavenly abode after his month long illness and Covid – 19 related complications, which had him hospitalised since August. He is said to have recorded his last song on 5th August at Hyderabad. Some sources are reporting he has total 40000 songs to his credit. This calculates to more than two songs per day, in a 50 year career. The career spanning 5 decades and active career he was much revered and loved in the south India’s movie and music fan. The four primary languages of the south, namely Kannada, Telegu, Tamil and Malayalam have the major share of his songs.

When thinking of his songs, the first film that comes to mind is “Ek Duje Ke liye” (1981). When I looked up the songs of this film and found this info about how S. P. Balasubramaniam finally got to sing the songs of this film:
This was singer S.P. Balasubramaniam’s debut Hindi film. Music directors Laxmikant – Pyarelal were not keen on using him for the film since they had not worked with him before. Director K. Balachander convinced them that S.P. Balasubramaniam was the right choice since his imperfect diction would suit the role of South Indian man played by Kamal Haasan in the film.

When S.P. Balasubramaniam first met Laxmikant – Pyarelal for this film, the music director duo had asked him to sing a song. The singer first sang the title song of “Mere Mehboob” (1963) composed by Naushad. The composers then asked him to sing a simple song and he sang “Jaanewalo Zara Mud KeDekhoMujhe” (“Dosti”, 1964) composed by Laxmikant – Pyarelal themselves. According to S.P. Balasubramaniam, it was this song that convinced the composers of his abilities.

Tere Mere Beech Mein (Duet) – This duet with Lata Mangeshkar was the first song S.P. Balasubramaniam had recorded for this film. He spoke a few Tamil lines in this song including “Nee romba nallapaadarae” meaning “You sing very well”. He later said that he found the words ironical since they came from a newcomer like him and were addressed to the legendary Lata Mangeshkar. He was apparently so nervous during the recording that he had accidentally spilt tea on her saree. Understanding his plight, Lata had praised S.P. Balasubramaniam during the rehearsals in order to put him at ease.

These details finally made me decide that I want to post a song from this film. I found that only two song from this film is posted in the blog till date:
Mere jeewan saathi pyaar kiye jaa
Solah baras ki baali umar ko salaam

And this beautiful song which was all the rage in the 80’s is not yet posted, which has two solo versions. One is by Lata Mangeshkar, a happy solo and other is by SPB a sad, very sad solo. Lata version is beautifully shot in picturesque locales of Goa with Rati Agnihotri singing and Kamaal Haasan, not comprehending the hindi song, trying to understand where she is pointing in the other direction. The last scene of this song, with both Rati Agnihotri and Kamaal Haasan, standing with their backs to the rock outcroppings, looking out to the see from the vantage point, with the beach below and the mountains just beyond, was the picture perfect poster on the movie hoardings, even in theatre’s.

The SPB version is shot in a hotel room, where both Kamal Haasan and RatiAgnihotri find themselves in adjoining room. They have promised Rati’s mother that they will not contact and meet each other for a year, so cannot meet. How inane is that, if they met by accident and not by design, than it is divine intervention. But this was an opportunity to create an intense song situation, with Rati doing more histrionics, with a sea-shell:). In an earlier scene, Rati’s mother burns the photo of Kamaal Haasan. Rati, in a fit of inspiration to prove her true love, mixes the burnt carbon remains of the photograph with tea and drinks it. I think the mother was played by Shubha Khote.

The song also won the following awards :
1981 – National Film Awards – Best Male Playback Singer – Tere Mere Beech Mein (Male) – S.P. Balasubramaniam
1981 – Filmfare Awards – Best Lyricist – Tere Mere Beech Mein (Duet) – Anand Bakshi

So I am presenting a song, which won SPB a National Film Award for best playback singer in 1981, as a tribute on his passing away. Of course his memory will be forever alive through his numerous songs. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

Today (4 may 2020) is a day when no notable HFM personality was born. But on this day, one person totally unconnected with HFM was born in a far away land 365 years ago. He would invent a musical instrument that has played a vital role in the development of HFM. Movies of 1950s and 1960s were not complete if this instrument did not appear in at least in one song. In one movie, this instrument has even appeared in four songs !

The instrument that we are talking about is Piano. It was invented in 1709 by Bartolomeo Cristofori di Francesco(4 May 1655 – 27 January 1731), was an Italian maker of musical instruments.

Nine of his pianos still survive. Three of them are preserved in three museums, one in New York (Metropolitan Museum), Rome (Museo Nazionale degli Strumenti Musicali) and Leipzig university( Museum of musical instruments)

Hindi movies have had hundred on Piano songs in it. This blog has as many as 147 Piano songs. The earliest is from 1938. Pianon songs came into their own in HFM from late 1940s and ruled the roost in HFm till late 1970s. After that, Piano songs became few and far between. Pianos, which depicted class and prosperity of the character playing it in those days. From 1970s onwards, actors started sporting guitar instead. Guitar may have looked jazzy and spectacular, but it disd not have the old world charm of a Piano.

Most Piano songs of note (pun unintended) have already been covered in the blog.

When I searched for Piano songs on internet, I came across a few writeups, that discussed well known Piano songs. All of them have already been covered in the blog. When I went through one of these writeups (posted on 5 october 2016), I found the description of these songs familiar. I realised that the description was very much mine ! When I checked up these songs in the blog, I realised that this article had copied and pasted contents of the writeup of Piano songs in the blog ! For instance, my description of “Bhaabhi”(1938) Piano song goes like

This song is picturised as a piano song. P Jairaj is playing the piano and this song is sung by Renuka Devi. Her father V H Desai looks on and later the villain Rama Sukul too comes in and watches her sing with disapproval.

You will find this description faithfully copied and pasted in that article.

My description of “Andaaz”(1949) piano song, “hum aaj kahin dil kho baithe”, was

Dilip Kumar sits at the piano at night and sings this song. And Nargis arrives with her pet dog and watches Dilip Kumar sing the song, clutching her dog like a pillow.

This description is faithfully copied and pasted in that writeup.

Like this, all the 25 Piano songs described there copies contents from this blog, without giving credit. How very cheap of this so called blogger. I have posted a comment in that blog which is unlikely to see the light of the day, of course.

Coming to Piano songs, I quickly realised that these songs had gone the way of qawwaali songs, cabarat songs etc- viz they had vanished as the golden era of HFM drew to a close.

One can still find a few piano songs here and there, but these songs are nowhere near the same class of Piano songs that were created during the golden era of HFM.

After some frenetic search, I have been able to locate one as yet unrepresented Piano song. It is from a “recent” movie. Even the movie, a musical blockbuster, is not yet represented in the blog.

Today, on the occasion of the birth anniversary of the man who gave us Piano, here is a piano song from “Saajan”(1991). Yes, this movie, the biggest box office hit of the year 1991 was not there in the blog till now. This movie, which was produced by K C Bokadia and directed by Lawrence Desouza had Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Salman Khan, Kader Khan, Reema Laagoo, Laxmikant Berde, Ekta Sohini, Anjana Mumtaz, Dinesh Hingoo, Yunus Parvez, Raju Shreshtha, Tej Sapru, Vikas Anand etc in it.

I had fond memories of watching this movie in Vadodara in 1991, where I was attending a course those days.

The movie had ten songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Saajan”(1991) to appear in the blog. This song has male and female solo versions sung by S P Balasubhramanyam and Alka Yagnik respectively. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

It is the female version, picturised on stage, with Madhuri Dixit near a piano, that makes this song a Piano song. Unlike Piano songs of yore, some sort of mist engulfs her and the piano. I wonder what the director was trying to achieve with this kind of picturisation.

On the occasion of the birth anniversary of the creator of Piano, here is this memorable Piano song from 1991.

With this song, “Saajan”(1991) makes its debut in the blog.

Welcome all to today’s post where I am presenting a song from the 1993 movie ‘Gardish’. I like this song very much. I had shared this song long time back but it was yet to be to be posted on the blog. This song is penned by Javed Akhtar.

Today 17th January 2020 is the 75th birth anniversary of Writer, Poet and Lyricist Javed Akhtar who was born on 17th January 1945 at Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh).

We on the blog wish him a ‘very happy birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead’…

Javed Akhtar who started his film career as a ‘screen play’ writer with Salim Khan, came from a family of Poets. His father Jan Nisar Akhtar was an Urdu poet and lyricist while his grand father and his great grand father’s elder brother were also a poet.

The pair of Salim-Javed has given Hindi movies many successful and milestone movies working together including hits like ‘Andaz-1971’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat’, ‘Deewaar’,’Sholay-1975’ etc. I am not going to list them all here in this post for today, and maybe we will have a separate post on this in the future.

After separating from Salim Khan (in 1981-1982), Javed Akhtar continued writing for movies as an independent screen writer and has been a part of many successful movies like ‘Betaab-1983’, ‘Mashaal-1983’, ‘Saagar-1985’, ‘Arjun-1985’, ‘Meri Jung-1985’, ‘Dacait-1987’, ‘Main Aazaad Hoon-1989’ etc.

After writing for movies he moved on to writing lyrics for the movies. He began his journey as a lyricist with the movie ‘Silsila-1981’ and till the latest movie to be released next week i.e. ‘Panga-2020’ he has penned lyrics for more than one hundred movies (if the information available in the domain is correct ‘Panga-2020’ will be his 111th movie as a ‘Lyricist’). As a lyricist he has given us many many memorable songs and many songs which have a high ‘poetic’ value.

His lyrics for the movies ‘Saaz-1996’, ‘Border-1997’, ‘Godmother-1998’, ‘Refugee-2000’, and ‘Lagaan-2001’ fetched him the ‘Best Lyricist’ award at the National Awards of that year.

He has also won many ‘filmfare’ awards for his ‘screen writing’ and ‘lyrics writing’ which I am not listing them all here. And instead will come back on the movie details for the today’s song.

‘Gardish-1993’ was presented by ‘Good Knight Films’. It was produced by R. Mohan and directed by Priyadarshan.

Priyadarshan also wrote the ‘screen play’ of this movie.

The movie had Jackie Shroff, Amrish Puri, Farida Jalal, Shammi Kapoor, Kunika, Asrani, Dimple Kapadia, Raj Babbar, Rakesh Bedi, Tej Sapru, Anand Mahadevan, Suresh Oberoi, Annu Kapoor and Shagufta Ali. This movie introduced Aiswarya (from South) and Mukesh Rishi.

Story of this movie was written by A.K. Lohitadas. Its dialogues were written by Suraj Sanim.
Viswanathan Vaduthala, Mohan Payyanoor, Vijay. K. Bhavan, Sonu Sisupal were assistants in direction. Also, there were II- & III-unit directors – R.R. Shinde and Murali Nagavally respectively.

Editing of this movie was done by N. Goplakrishnan. Santosh Sivan was the Director of Cinematography of this movie.
Choreography of this movie was done by Sundaram, Prabu Deva and Suchitra.

Back ground music was scored by S.P. Venkatesh.

Lyrics were penned by Javed Akhtar and music was composed by R.D. Burman. The movie had six songs.
Asha Bhonsle, M.G. Sreekumar and S.P. Balasubramaniam had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19th August 1993 and it was a remake of Malayalam movie ‘Kireedam’. It’s remake was also made in Telugu, Kannada before the Hindi version and later in Bengali and Tamil.

I had watched this movie twice then – once at Kota (I was staying at Kota then) and once at Indore during my ‘in-transit’ halt their while travelling from Kota to Parli-Vaijnath.

I liked this movie very much then as it had some powerful performances especially by Jackie Shroff, Amrish Puri, Dimple Kapadia and Mukesh Rishi and others too. I would also mentioned the role played by Annu Kapoor wherein he is playing an educated unemployed who accidentally become a ‘beggar’ for survival, but capitalizing on it he went on to employ many educated unemployed into his ‘business’(empire of ‘bhikharis’😊, and he also ‘innovatively’ deputes each of them according to their ‘relevant qualification’ for placement of ‘begging’ at a particular ‘location/field’.

It’s a ‘cynical comedy’ type role and Annu Kapoor has given his very best in this role.

For those who have not watched this movie I would sum-up the storyline in the following –
– The tagline on the posters of the movie – ‘Wanted to be a man of law, now wanted by the law’ i.e. the protagonist in the movie – the hero- Jackie Shroff.
– Amrish Puri, who plays the father to Jackie Shroff in this movie, is a Havaldar in Police and always dreaming of his song becoming a Police Inspector (the movie starts with this scene in Police Station …)
– However, life takes a turn for the hero who was an aspiring Police Officer who took on ‘criminals’ to save his Father first, then his Sister and finally ending up killing the goon … Shiva (Jackie Shroff) is arrested by Police for the offence…
– The movie ends with Amrish Puri submitting a police verification report for his son’s Police Job to his senior Suresh Oberoi mentioning that as per the police verification report Shiva (Jackie Shroff) cannot become a police officer since he is a ‘criminal’ now …

(The film won two Filmfare Awards—Best Art Direction (Sabu Cyril) and Best Action (Thyagarajan), and was nominated for Best Actor (Shroff), Best Supporting Actor (Amrish Puri), and Best Supporting Actress(Dimple Kapadia, as per information available on ‘wiki’.)

The songs of this movie composed by R.D. Burman were nice and I like them. ‘Rang Rangeeli Raat’ by Asha Bhonsle and the words (in some foreign language, I think) reminds the song ‘dil ki manzil kuchh aisi hai manzil’ from ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne-1963’.

The other songs were also good. And the one that I am presenting today was my favorite song from this movie. The song keeps growing on as we listen to it more and more.

I had then (in 1993) got this one song recorded six times on one side of the cassette. I am sure, our readers will also like this song. The song has some beautiful meaningful verses penned by Javed Akhtar.

This song is sung by S.P. Balasubramaniam and composed by R.D. Burman.

Let us now enjoy today’s song from “Gardish”(1993).

Hullo Atuldom
December is filled with birthdays of superstars and super actors. We began the month remembering Dev Anand, birthdays of Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, & Dilip Kumar followed. Today is the 69th birthday of Rajnikanth, the darling of the masses in South India, he was also decently successful in Bollywood.

He is an actor who started out portraying negative characters and near-bit roles much like Shatrughan Sinha of Bollywood. He has worked his way up the ranks to superstardom and his best period began with “Billa” (1980) and he hasn’t left the hearts and minds of his fans- much like his inspiration- he has admitted many-a-times that he is a fan of Amitabh Bachchan. And after being cast in roles of antagonist from 1975-77 in Tamil and Telugu 1978 saw the release of “Shankar Salim Simon” which was a remake of Manmohan Desai’s “Amar Akbar Anthony”; this was followed by remakes of “Majboor”, “Trishul”, “Deewar”, “Namak Halal”, “Don” (Billa was its remake), “Lawaaris” etc and I seem to have seen most of these. I would love to hear the feelings he had when he got to act with his inspiration Big B in his debut Hindi movie- “Andha Kanoon” (incidentally this too was remade in Tamil but with Vijaykanth acting the role played by Rajni in the Hindi version). We had many Hindi movies in the 80s which were remakes of Rajni’s south Indian originals.
I
His super successful Tamil movie “Moondru Mugam” meaning three-faces was made as “John Jani Janardhan” in with Rati Agnihotri and Poonam Dhillon as female leads. It was the story of an honest police officer John Mendez (Rajnikanth as father) who lives a middle-class lifestyle with his wife, Cheryl (Poonam Dhillon), and a maidservant, Fatimabi (Dulari). John busts a gang that makes illicit liquor and holds them in a cell, bringing him into confrontation with their leader, Gajanand ‘Gajju’ (Kadar Khan), who goes to threaten John, but is himself arrested and sentenced. When he is acquitted, he decides to avenge his humiliation by entrapping John and killing him. Cheryl gives birth to twin sons and passes away. A rich childless couple, Brijmohan Gupta (Utpal Dutt) adopts one of the twins and names him Janardhan (Rajnikanth -son number 1), while the second is named Jani (Rajnikanth son number 2) and lives with Fatimabi. Twenty-five years later, Janardhan is an American-returned young man, in love with Madhu (Rati Agnihotri). On his birthday party he comes face to face with a man named Gopaldas (played by south actor Thyagarajan), and his entire personality changes as he is taken over by the vengeful spirit of John. Subsequently, Gopaldas is killed, and Janardhan is arrested and tried in Court. And then there is the usual climax when the brothers discover each other etc. (seen this movie a long time ago in Tamil not in Hindi)

Today on the occasion of Rajnikanth’s birthday a song from “John Jani Janardhan” which had Laxmi-Pyare’s music and Anand Bakshi’s lyrics. S P Balasubramaniam and S Janaki have given playback for this lively number which has Rati matching Rajnikanth’s colourful T-shirts with her lovely white dresses.

Rati who made her debut into Hindi movies with “Ek Duje Ke Liye” opposite Kamal Hasan in 1981 turned a year on 10th December. She was Rajnikanth’s co-star in many south Indian movies but I think this was the only time she acted with him in Hindi. Here is wishing her too a very (belated) Happy Birthday.

logon se ab kya darna
humne ye jaan jawaani
bas tere naam lagaa di

dum naka dum dum dum naaji
chat mangani aur pat shaadi
arre dum naka dum dum dum naaji
chat mangani aur pat shaadi

main pyaar nahin karta hoon
main tum pe marta hoon
main ae ae pyaar nahin karta hoon
main tum pe marta hoon

jeene ki baat karo ji
jeewan mein rang bharo ji
main kaisa thha anjaana
main kaisa thha anjaana
main kitni der mein jaana
duniya kaanton ki basti
ulfat phoolon ki waadi

dum naka dum dum dum naaji
chat mangani aur pat shaadi
arre dum naka dum dum dum naji
chat mangani aur pat shaadi

yeh dil kuchh aise dhadka
jaise ik shola sa bhadka
yeh dil kuchh aise dhadka
jaise ik shola sa bhadka

kiss kaaran se yeh jogi
ban baitha dil ka rogi
kaaran kuchh aur nahin hai
kaaran kuchh aur nahin hai
iss dil pe zor nahin hai
na maana yeh deewaana
na maana yeh deewaana
toh humne aankh ladaa di

dum naka dum dum dum naaji
chat mangani aur phat shaadi
arre dum naka dum dum dum naaji
hey
chat mangani aur phat shaadi
logon ki baat na karna
logon se ab kya darna
hamne ye jaan jawaani
bas tere naam lagaa di

dum naka dum dum dum naaji
arre chat mangani aur pat shaadi
haan dum naka dum dum dum naaji

chat mangani aur pat shaadi
arre re re re re
chat mangani or pat shaadi
dum naka dum dum dum naaji

“Teri Paayal Mere Geet”(1993) was produced by Prem Lalwani and directed by Rehman Naushad. The movie had Govinda, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Shakti Kapoor, Kadar Khan, Bharat Bhushan, Johny Lever, Nivin Nischol etc in it.

The movie had a theme that was more 1960s than 1990s and it came as no surprise that the movie had few takers at the box office.

The movie had eight songs in it. Here is the first song from “Teri Paayal Mere Geet”(1993) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by S P Balasubrahmaniam. Hasan Kamal is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

The picturisation shows Govinda lip sayncing this song while staying hidden from the views of Shakti Kapoor and Meenakshi Sheshadri.

With this song, “Teri Paayal Mere Geet”(1993) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Baat sabse karo pyaar hamse karo (Teri Paayal Mere Geet)(1993) Singer-S P Balasubramaniam, Lyrics-Hasan Kamaal, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

sabhi milne ko milte hain
magar kab dil se milte hain
mohabbat karne waale to
badi mushqil se milte hain

tumse ek arz hai tum agar maan lo
baat sabse karo pyaar humse karo
baat sabse karo pyaar humse karo
tumse ik arz hai tum agar maan lo
baat sabse karo pyaar humse karo
pyaar humse karo
pyaar humse karo o o

sabse milkar yoon hi muskuraate raho
bijliyaan si dilon par giraate raho
sabse milkar yoon hi muskuraate raho
bijliyaan si dilon par giraate raho
apna deewaana sabko banaate raho
apna deewaana sabko banaate raho
bas mohabbat ka ikraar humse karo
baat sabse karo pyaar humse karo
bas mohabbat ka ikraar humse karo
baat sabse karo pyaar humse karo
pyaar humse karo
haan

sabko ye roop
ye baankpan chaahiye
phool sa ye mahakta badan chaahiye
sabko ye roop ye baankpan chaahiye
phool sa ye mahakta badan chaahiye
tumko tan chaahiye humko man chaahiye ae ae
tumko tan chaahiye humko man chaahiye
dil ka sauda to ek baar humse karo
baat sabse karo
pyaar humse karo
dil ka sauda to ek baar humse karo
baat sabse karo
pyaar humse karo
pyaar humse karo
pyaar humse karo

“Mangni”(1992) is a movie of recent vintage by the standards of this blog, but this movie has ended up becoming totally obscure. I do not seem to have heard of this movie during the time it was released. The movie must have flopped spectacularly. Search on internet throws up some sketchy details about this movie. The movie was directed by B R Ishara (production house is not known). The movie had Pallavi Joshi, Sahil, Raja Bundela, Satyan Kappu, Tiku Talsania, Shammi Kapoor, Mukesh Khanna, Raman Trikha etc in it.

The movie had eight songs and these songs too ennded up becoming as unsung as the movie itself.

Here is the first song from “Mangni”(1992) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by S P Balasubrahmaniyam. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

The song is picturised as an “expression of love” genre of song on the hero of the movie who I guess must be Sahil (going by the cast) who sings this song for the benefit of the heroine Pallavi Joshi.

The song sounds similar to most O P Nayyar compositions that used to get sung in the golden era of HFM by Rafi. But this song came much after the golden era and the magic of golden era music is sadly missing in this song.

This movie is one of the missing movies of O P Nayyar in the blog and that was the main motive behind introducing this song (and the movie) in the blog.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie whose detals seem to be conspicuous by their absense online.

With this song, “Mangni”(1992) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Kabhi na mitega mera pyaar (Mangni)(1992) Singer-S P Balasubrahmanyam, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

kabhi na mitega mera pyaar
duniya saari chaahe mit jaaye ae
kabhi na mitega mera pyaar
duniya saari chaahe mit jaaye ae
kabhi na mitega mera pyaar

ho ho ho
aa haa haa
hey hey hey
aa ha ha
har rang mein main tujhko
chaahta rahoonga sanam m
jaan bhi de doonga
tere liye teri qasam
tu hi pyaar hai
tu hi yaar hai
tere pyaar par aitbaar hai ae
kabhi na mitega mera pyaar
duniya saari chaahe mit jaaye ae
kabhi na mitega mera pyaar

ban jaaye tu meri
karta raha main dua aa
pyaar banaane waale ne
sun li hai meri sada
mera dilruba
mujhko mil gaya aa
na karoonga main
ab kabhi dua aa
kabhi na mitega mera pyaar
duniya saari chaahe mit jaaye ae
kabhi na mitega mera pyaar
duniya saari chaahe mit jaaye ae
kabhi na mitega mera pyaar
