In Hindi film industry, there have been many ‘rags to riches’ stories since its inceptions. There were instances where ‘rags to riches’ went back to their ‘rags’ status because they could not prudently handle their wealth and the fame. On the other hand, there are instances who could retain their rich status thanks to their dedication to work as well as prudent financial planning. One of them was Chandrashekar Narvekar, who is known in Hindi film industry as N. Chandra (born 04/04/1952).

N Chandra was born and brought up in a lower middle class family in the midst of mill workers in Worli Naka. The working class had their chawls and hutments at the foot of Worli Hills while the affluent class of the society lived on the top of the hills. So, he had closely seen the economic disparity between the rich and the poor.

After completion of his high-school, N Chandra joined the Film Centre at Tardeo in the film editing division where his father was employed. He learnt the nuances of film editing. In 1971, he started as clapper boy for Gulzar’s ‘Mere Apne’ (1971) and became one of Gulzar’s assistant directors in ‘Parichay’ (1972), ‘Koshish’ (1972), ‘Achanak’ (1973), Aandhi’ (1975), ‘Khushboo’ (1975) and ‘Mausam’ (1975). Chandrashekhar Narvekar changed his name to N Chandra when he became the associate director to Bapu in ‘Bezubaan’ (1982) and ‘Woh 7 Din’ (1983) for which he was also a full-pledged Editor of these two films.

While working for ‘Woh 7 Din’ (1983), N Chandra got the inspiration to independently direct a Hindi film. He co-produced and directed his debut film ‘Ankush’ (1986) with non-star actors, most of whom were from Marathi and Gujarati stages. The story of the film was based on what N Chandra had witnessed during his younger days in Worli Naka after a prolonged mill workers strike. At that time, Worli-Lower Parel areas of Mumbai had the highest concentrations of cotton mills. The prolonged strike led to the closure of mills permanently, creating unemployment among the youth and the social unrest.

‘Ankush’ (1986) grossed over 3 crores on the box office on a budget of Rs,12 lakhs, a part of which was raised by N Chandra by selling his personal belongings. The tremendous success of the film helped Nana Patekar in improving his career graph as an actor. For N Chandra, the film boosted his confidence that a good story based on the contemporary subject with a realistic approach in direction could make a film successful even with non-star actors. His next two films – ‘Pratighaat’ (1987) and ‘Tezaab’ (1988) completed a sort of a trilogy of films on social justice.

‘Pratighaat’ (1987) was the second film which N Chandra directed apart from writing the screen-play and editing the film. The film was produced by A Ramoji Rao and was a remake of a Telugu film ‘Pratighatana’ (1985) which was also remade in Malayalam as ‘Pakarathinu Pakaram’ (1986). Sujata Mehta, a prominent Gujarati stage actor who had become popular with her Hindi TV serials ‘Khandaan’ (1985) and ‘Shrikant’ (1986), made her debut in this film as a lead actor along with Arvind Kumar and Charan Raj. The other actors included Rohini Hattangadi, Ashok Saraf, Mohan Bhandari, Nana Patekar, Subbiraj, Usha Nadkarni, Savita Bajaj, Ravi Patwardhan, Anuradha Sawant etc. The film was released on March 17, 1987.

Even though, in the film, Sujata Mehta was paired with Arvind Kumar, it was Charan Raj who had a larger presence in the film in the role of a criminal, Kali Prasad. Charan Raj is a Kannada actor who mostly did the role of a villain in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi films. He has also produced, directed and composed music for some films.

The DVD of the film is available for on-line for viewing. However, the quality of the picture as well as sound is not of good quality. Hence, I have watched the film sporadically. The gist of the story of the film is as under:

Laxmi (Sujata Mehta) is married to Satya Prakash (Arvind Kumar) who is a practicing lawyer. Laxmi works as a scool teacher. In the town, there is a hardened criminal, Kali Prasad (Charan Raj) whose writ rules over the entire town as he has blessing from a local politician. He has bee arrested in the past but gets release on bail with the blessing of a local politician which is followed by Kali taking the revenge on the complainers or the policeman who arrested him, resulting in their deaths. One of the victims is an ex-constable (Nana Patekar) who has become insane after his wife is brutually killed by Kali.

Laxmi finds it odd that even her school is under the influence of Kali for his notorious activities. She seeks help from her college-mate, sub-inspector, Ajay Shrivastav (Mohan Bhandari). He tells Laxmi that there is no point in arresting him as no one would stand witness against him and he gets the bail.
Nonetheless, Ajay arrests him after which he gets the bail. In the broad daylight, Ajay is murdered by Kali and Laxmi has witnessed his murder. She is ready to stand witness against Kali in the police station. Kali takes revenge on Laxmi by striping her in the public and in front of her husband who is scared to rescue her.

Laxmi takes a vow that she would continue to fight against Kali for justice and she is helped by Durga (Rohni Hattangadi) whose husband was killed by Kali for lodging complaint against him in the police station. Local election is due and Kali has been selected as a candidate. Laxmi stands in the elections against Kali. Kali’s hooligans create a lot of problem for Laxmi in her election campaign. Kali wins the election by booth capturing.

During the election victory celebration, Laxmi reaches on the stage and congratulate him on his election victory. She has brought a real axe which was the election symbol of Kali and hacks him to death in front of a large crowd. The film ends with police arriving on the scene and arresting Laxmi who sarcastically tells the Inspector that she is happy that he is doing his duties which he failed to do so while Kali was on a killing spree in the town.

‘Pratighaat’ (1987) made with non-star cast was a runway success at the box office front. The film reviews highly praised the performance of Sujata Mehta and Charan Raj.

The film had four songs all written and composed by Ravindra Jain. I am presenting the first song, ‘tere sar pe mere pyaar kaa farz hai’ from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is rendered by S P Balasubrahmanyam and S Janaki.

With this song, the film, ‘Pratighaat’ (1987) makes its debut on the Blog.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is one that I have been wanting to present on the blog for years. I have kept looking for its link on YouTube and finally found that someone has uploaded it in May 2019. Then I looked for the movie’s songs on our blog and found one song was posted with lyrics contributed by Avinashji.

In the comments to that song Prakshchandraji has written this about the movie:-

“Shubh Kaamna is a remake of famous Telugu hit movie “Shubh Lekha(1982) (directed by the same famous director K.Vishwanath) starring famous Telugu Hero (now turned into politician) Chiranjeevi and Sumalata. The film dealt with the Dowry system and Utpal Dutt`s acting in Shubh kaamna is very good. And the music of Pancham is also very good. Kiran Vairale acted very well. But I think, somehow the southern flavour of the movie was not accepted by northern audience. But I enjoyed the movie very much.”

Prakashji had also mentioned that the videos related to the movie are not easily available.

The movie had a cast of Rati Agnihotri, Kiran Vairale, Ashalata, Rakesh Roshan, Vinod Mehra (think it was a special appearance), Sujit Kumar, Utpal Dutt, Asrani, Omprakash, Satyen Kappu, and South actor Sudhakar played Utpal Dutt’s younger son and Kiran Vairale’s love interest. The songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. I had seen this movie with family at the time of its theatrical release; and loved the concept of the movie. There was something to do with Allwyn watch company in the movie and some portion of the movie was shot in the factory, if my memory is correct. Also the beaches of Andhra Pradesh served as location for much of the movie.

Today’s song is a stage song which has Rakesh Roshan singing at a cultural program at the college where Rati Agnihotri is a lecturer and Kiran Vairale (her sister) is a student. The song is in a few dialects(editor’s- it is in Bangla).

Today happens to be Rakesh Roshan’s birthdate. He started his career at 21 or 22 after the untimely death of his father -the music director Roshan. He began as assistant to director Mohan Kumar in films like ‘Anjaana’. He was recommended by Rajendra Kumar to Soodesh Kumar and he got a supporting role in ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani’ All through his acting career he has acted in many heroine-centric movies like ‘Paraya Dhan’, ‘Khoobsurat’, ‘Aankhon Aankhon Mein’, ‘Bahurani’, ‘Humari Bahu Alka’ etc. He played a few grey characters too as in ‘Jhootha Kahin Ka’, ‘Dil Aur Deewar’, ‘Daasi’, ‘Aakhir Kyon?’ etc. When he started his own production house his first movie was ‘Aap Ke Deewane’ which starred Tina Munim opposite two heroes- Rishi Kapoor and Rakesh Roshan. His next was ‘Kaamchor’ which had Jaya Prada as the central character. this was followed by ‘Jaag Utha Insaan’ and ‘Bhagwan Dada’ both of which had Sridevi in important roles. He turned a full-fledged filmmaker i.e. a producer director with ‘Khoon Bhari Maang’ which was on Rekha’s character. ‘Bahurani’ (1989) and ‘Aurat Aurat Aurat’ (1996) where the last movies where he had a substantial part to play. He has since been seen in guest appearances in ‘Koi Mil Gaya’, ‘Krrish’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’. He has been in the enterainment industry for 50 years now.

Here is wishing Rakesh Roshan lots of health and happiness as he turns 72.

It can be seen from the table of 1994 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 39 songs in 12 movies released in 1994.

4 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1994 have been covered in the blog. All Lata songs (viz one) from one movie, namely “1942 A love Story” has been covered. That leaves us with 35 songs from 11 movies of 1994 that are yet to be covered.

Alphabetically “Anokha Premyudh”(1994) is the first movie of 1994 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Anokha Premyudh”(1994) was a Hindi remake of Telugu movie “Prema Shikharam” (1992). The movie was produced by Manoj Bhatnagar and directed by Satya Gopalram for Sameer Films and studios. The movie had Prashanth, Mamta Kulkarni, Arun Pandiyan, Sitara etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Lata Mangeshkar’s voice figured in two songs (both duets).

Here is one of these duets. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and S P Balasubrahmaniam. Lyrics and music are by Manoj Saran.

Prakashchandra sent the lyrics and other details of the movie. He tells us this interestng fact that the lyricist cum Manoj Saan was none other than Manoj Bhatnagar, the producer himself ! Why he felt the need to use another name while composing music is a matter of conjecture. My guess is that he used a suth Indian sounding name, since he was composing in South Indian movies. Personally I find this name more Bihari than South Indian. 🙂

Only the audio of the song is available. I requst our knowledeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. My guess is that it was pictursed on Prashanth and Mamta Kulkarni.

With this song, “Anokha Premyudh”(1994) makes its debut in the blog.

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.

mm hmm mohini suraagini

pyar kabhi waqt-faqt dekhta nahin
har ek waqt hai theek pyar mein

pyar kabhi rang-roop dekhta nahin
kaaluraam bhi hai theek pyar mein
prem-jyoti na bujhegi
aaj hamdam kuchh to prem kar le

yahaan maan apmaan to kuch bhi nahin
ye haqeeqat duniya samajhti nahin

badale yeh zameen aasmaan
par chaahaten nahin badale
laila-majnu pyaar ki woh
dastaan poochhe inn hawaaon mein
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

tara tara tara tara ra ra
tara tara tara tara ra ra

#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

kyaa faasle ae kya manzilen

jiski kismat koi yoon sanwaar de
wohi dildaar hai ae
yaar mere
ho o yaar mere

sunte thhe hum ae zindagi
gham aur khushi ka mel hai
hum ko magar aaya nazar
ye zindagi wo khel hai
koi sab jeete
sab koi haar de
hahaha
apni to haar hai

Tribute to S. P. Balasubramaniam
—————————————————

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.
