It can be seen from the table of 1990 that Lata Mangeshkar sang just 13 songs in 10 movies released in 1990.
3 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1990 have been covered in the blog. All Lata songs from two movies (two songs each from “Aaj Ka Arjun” and one song from “Jeene Do”) have been covered. That leaves us with 10 songs from 8 movies of 1990 that are yet to be covered.

Alphabetically “Aag Ka Darya”(1990) is the first movie of 1990 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Aag Ka Darya”(1990) was produced by R Venkatraman and directed by S V Rajendra Singh. The movie had Dilip Kumar, Rekha, Amrita Singh, Avtar Gill, Padmini Kolhapure etc in it.

“Aag Ka Darya”(1990)had six songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Out of the remaining five songs, one song is a Lata Shabbir Kumar duet.

Here is that song. It is penned by Rajinder Krishan. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This song is the last song that Rajinder Krishan penned for Lata Mangeshkar. As mentioned earlier, Rajinder Krishan penned 555 songs (in 157 movies) in all for Lata Mangeshkar. These songs were released between 1949 and 1990.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai(Aag Ka Darya)(1990) Singers-Lata, Shabbir Kumar, Lyrics- Rajinder Krishan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhana hai
ek aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
ik aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

jis raat chandaniya se ye chaand khafa hoga aa
jis raat chandaniya se ye chaand khafa hoga
us raat ke raahi ka socha bhi hai kya hoga
raste mein andhera hai aur door thhikaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

vo ghar bhi koi ghar hai deevaar na ho jismein
vo ghar bhi koi ghar hai deevaar na ho jismein
us pyaar ki kya keemat takraar na ho jismein
gussa to manaane ka bas ek bahaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

bhoole se koi aansu aankhon mein agar aaye ae
bhoole se koi aansu aankhon mein agar aaye
vo dil ki amaanat hai mitti mein na mil jaaye
ulfat ka vo moti hai palkon mein chhupaaaa hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
ik aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai ae
ik aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
donon ko nibhaana hai
donon ko nibhaana hai

Remembrance Day   —    Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar (of Laxmikant-Pyarelal)

Today is the 23rd remembrance day of Laxmikant S. Kudalkar one half of the music composer duo fondly known as L-P.  They were the sole torch bearers by 1988, of the melodious music of the golden era of HFM.   Though RD Burman was still around, but doing very few films.  L-P it seems never took a breather, till the demise of  Laxmikant on 25.05.1998.  I personally don’t know of any instance where Pyarelal composed a film score alone.

Laxmikant–Pyarelal received won 7 awards and 15 nominations for best music direction in the Filmfare awards.

Filmfare Award for Best Music Director– Won

1965 Dosti
1968 Milan
1970 Jeene Ki Raah
1978 Amar Akbar Anthony
1979 Satyam Shivam Sundaram
1980 Sargam
1981 Karz

They have composed close to 3000 songs out of which 896 are posted.  So the tally is so close to 900 mark.   Today is actually Remembrance Day of Sunil Dutt also.  I could have easily found a song by L-P featuring Sunil Dutt to post, but I was reminded of this wonderful group song from ‘Tezaab’ in a video forward in the family group.

Belgaum city has been put under strict lock down for the extended weekend from Friday to Monday.  The video is maybe shot last year showing empty streets, markets and by-lanes of the city.  It was moving very fast, so I failed to recognise much of the blurred views. This song from ‘Tezaab’ 1988 was playing in the background, so I decided to do this song post.  I have always liked the song for the humming in the background, and night journey in the battered vehicle with a broken wind shield.  Chunky Pandey and his friends are singing this song.  While sad looking Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor are trying to enjoy their antics.  Second stanza is filmed on these two with background singing by Alka Yagnik and Shabbir Kumar.  Nitin Mukesh is giving playback to Chunky Pandey.

Peevesie’s Mom would have liked to post this as Chunky Pandey’s song, I suspect.  But I have it as a night song from ‘Tezaab’ by Nitin Mukesh.  That’s how I remembered it and had thought of including it in the ‘Chaandni Raatien’ series.  But since there is no moon visible here, nor it is mentioned in the song, so desisted.

The other day after reading Madhuri’s birthday post on 15th May, I remembered many songs.  Even started one post for a Madhuri song, but could not complete it.  That one is also a hit L-P score.  But for now, that song will have to wait.

For a five-minute song, this is having only 2 stanza’s.  So, I looked for audio version, thinking that it may have an extra stanza.  But there is no extra stanza in the audio version, which is slightly longer with repetition of mukhda.

So, let’s enjoy this hummable, slow, melodious, pensive, meaningful song, written by Javed Akhtar.

And remember Laxmikant Kudalkar, the musician.

Hullo Atuldom

“Atulsongaday”- our favourite blog- is 16200+ posts old. We are still discovering popular songs and exclaiming ‘how come this has not yet been posted’. The song with this post is one that will get similar thoughts in the minds of the regular followers.

It is from a movie that I saw in the theatres at the time of its release and fell in love with its lead actors. Of course, falling in love with the moving images on the silver screen is something that I have been a victim of since “Seeta aur Geeta”, “Aradhana” and all the other movies that fall in my list of personal favourites. Small wonder then that I liked what I saw in “Betaab” and it is in the list of movies that I see every time I come across it. Also, the young star-crossed couple that Amrita Singh -Sunny Deol portrayed looked every bit in love with each other, that means they are good actors who did justice to Rahul Rawail’s (the director) judgement in casting them. Finally, ‘star-crossed lovers’ has always been a hit-formula in Indian movies and I am a fan of that formula since “Bobby”.

“Betaab” (1983) was produced by Vijayta Films which is essentially Dharmendra’s production house and Bikram Singh Dehal was the producer. Javed Akhtar was the writer, Anand Bakshi the lyricist and RD Burman was the music director. Shabbir Kumar (for whom this was a breakthrough movie) and Lata Mangeshkar were the playback singers. Nirupa Roy and Shammi Kapoor played parents, Prem Chopra the spoilsport, and Annu Kapoor, Birbal, Sunder etc were in supporting roles.

Interestingly, there is a scene in the start of the movie, where Amrita Singh (Roma Singh/Dingy in the movie) goes to fill petrol and the person who played the petrol pump attendant was actor Sunder’s son. That scene was to show the haughtiness of Roma’s character who later gets tamed and toned down after falling in love with Sunny. The two families are shown to be old-time friends who part ways and when Sunny’s family falls on bad times, Roma’s father, Shammi Kapoor, doesn’t acknowledge them as now they are on different economic levels. The movie travels the usual path of the lovers revolting against the tough father and his restrictions etc. and eventually getting back together for an ‘all is well’ ending.

Amrita Singh, who was a debutant in “Betaab” alongwith Sunny Deol, has her birthday today. And she is not a lady who hides her age and has been bold enough to act in all types of roles. She was amazing as a selfish sister in Deepak Sareen directed and Yash Chopra produced “Aaina” in 1994 and that fetched her the best supporting actor award. She has also enacted a negative character in the television serial “Kaavyanjali” and won an award there too. I saw the movie “2 States” in 2014 just to see her and Revathi (of south films), two actresses of the 80s and 90s whose work I enjoy.

Amrita was a heroine i.e playing a girl in love; screaming when the villain walks in; trying to get in the good books of the hero, his mother and other sundry family members in many of her initial movies. At the same time, she also tried her comic timing in “Chameli Ki Shaadi”; played a girl jilted by her man and still going ahead to give birth to his son in “CID” (1990) where Vinod Khanna was her hero. She has been paired with Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra, Vinod Khanna, Rajesh Khanna, Rajnikant, Raj Babbar, Rishi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Sunny, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie etc. of the next generation. When she co-starred with Shahrukh Khan in “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” she played a grey character and with Salman Khan in “Suryavanshi” she played the wandering ‘atma’ (soul) of a departed princess who is waiting to be re-united with her lover. She has had the guts to play a totally heartless businesswoman in “Kalyug” (2005) which was all about secret cameras, porn videos and international rackets dealing with these crimes. She had a break in her career when she married Saif Ali Khan in the 90s, had kids etc. She returned to face the camera with “23rd March 1931: Shaheed” as Bhagat Singh’s (played by Bobby Deol) mother. Her daughter Sara has made her debut in Bollywood through “Kedarnath” in 2018.

Here is wishing Amrita Singh all happiness and success in her future ventures too with this song that was her debut in Bollywood. This song appears in parts in the movie with the two also running around as kids when this song plays in the background (just remembered this bit.)

Hullo Atuldom

21st December happens to be the birthday of an entertainer who is the son of yesteryear (meaning the ’40s and ’50s) actor-producer Arun Kumar Ahuja and singer-actress Nirmala Devi. He is part of a family of 5 children -3 sisters and 2 brothers. All the children of Arun Ahuja are connected to the entertainment industry either directly or because of their children. The oldest daughter- Pushpa’s son Vinay Anand is an actor; second daughter- Padma’s son Krushna Abhishek and Arati Singh are actors; third daughter -Kamini herself is a writer, music director, singer, anchor etc.- daughter Ragini and son Amit are actors. Next of Arun Ahuja’s children is Kirti Kumar who is a director and an occasional actor. Then comes our today’s birthday boy- Govind Ahuja who gained popularity as Govinda.

Govinda started his career as an actor doing roles that were not necessarily in the comedy genre but showcased all aspects of acting viz. action, emotion, dancing etc. I remember having read his interview in magazines at the time of his debut, about how he had circulated his VHS tape to various production house that emphasized his dancing skills. I also recall reading how he had auditioned for a character in B R Chopra’s tele-series ‘Mahabharat’ before being signed by his maternal uncle Anand Singh (who happened to be Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s assistant in movies like ‘Khoobsurat’ and also played the character of Rakesh Roshan’s doctor friend in that). But ‘Tan Badan’ released after ‘Ilzaam’ and ‘Love 86’. Neelam was his heroine in many of his movies in that period.

Then he found his comic timing when he teamed up with David Dhawan in the ’90s and we found him cast opposite Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Juhi Chawla etc. We have seen him play second lead in movies of the late ’80s where Dilip Kumar, Raj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatru, Jeetu etc. played main protagonists. And Govinda says that those were learning experiences for him.

Currently we see him sharing screen-time with the likes of Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar.

Govinda has received 12 Filmfare nominations including best actor, best performance in a comic role and even a Best Villain. Yes he has played a villain too and he was very good at it in the N. Chandra directed 2000 release ‘Shikaari’. He has won 3 filmfare and numerous other awards.

It looks like his favourite male co-actors have been Shakti Kapoor (42 films), Kadar Khan (41 films), Johnny Lever (22 films), Satish Kaushik and Paresh Rawal (14 films with each).

Today’s song is from a movie that was released in 1989 but is not remembered by many I suppose. It had music by Bappi Lahiri; Anjaan and Naqsh Lyallpuri were the lyricists. From what I read on IMDB.com the story appears to be the usual masala stuff of an honest cop deciding that honesty doesn’t pay and having to encounter his own brother who has grown up to be an honest cop out to nab the cop-turned-criminal.

The cast was headed by Shashi Kapoor (possibly one of his last releases), Neelam Kothari and Govinda with Amrish Puri, Bob Christo, etc were in the supporting cast.
Here is this song from this movie. It is sung by Shabbir Kumar and AnuradhaChandrani Mukherjee. Lyricist is not known.

The song is picturised on Govinda and Neelam. It is quite a hummable song to listen to, even though the song failed to get popular.

“Farz Ki Jung”(1989) makes its debut with this song.

19/10/2020 – 64th Birthday of Sunny Deol
——————————————-
“Betaab” (1983) was produced by the Vijayta Films banner Dharmendra. This was the debut Hindi film of its lead actors, Sunny Deol and Amrita Singh. Today is Sunny Deol’s birthday, real name Ajay Singh Deol, made his debut at the age of 27 years.

The word “Betaab” evokes the Lata Mangeshkar’s melodious song “ Betaab dil ki tamanna yahi hai” by Madan Mohan in the film “Hanste Zakhm”. For a change, this is one of the films which I have seen, when it was released. I wanted to see the songs of this film for some time now, Sunny Deol’s birthday gave me the excuse. I have seen some of them, looking for a song shot on location. Critically speaking, this is not among the better scores by R. D. Burman. This is very basic, run of the mill music score, none of the RDB versatility being in evidence. May be the 80’s monotony is catching up with me. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist.

The location of the major parts of this film is a valley in Pahalgam, Kashmir, below the road leading to the glacier. The valley is named “Betaab valley”, and all tourist vehicles stop there on the way to Amarnath cave. It is a beautiful location, with the river flowing next to it.

We visited Kashmir in May 2012. I can say that it is one place on earth where time has stood still. I found a multiple locations which were seen in so many films of 60-80’s, the same as seen in the movies. Movie makers favorite location was the Dal Lake. The area surrounding it was a lot different, from what was seen in movies like “Aarzoo”. But I could see many places at Gulmarg and Pahalgam same as it was seen in movies. Seeing the wooden shop fronts in Pahalgam town, I remembered seeing the scene is “Bobby”.

Actually, Pahalgam has much more pristine and beautiful locations and points off the beaten track also, like the area called “Mini Switzerland”. I know the technology is so much advanced, and many megapixel cameras are now available to mankind to capture the nature’s beauty. But it is a fact that the human eye’s capacity is 576 megapixel. As far as I can understand, there is no camera in the world which can click or record at 576 megapixel.

This is what Google says, going to such details on a simple search:
“We see in 576 megapixel definition when our eyes are moving, but a single glance would only be about 5-15 megapixels. What’s more, your eyes naturally have a lot of flaws that a camera or digital screen don’t. For example, you have a built-in blind spot where your optic nerve meets up with your retina.”

Fantastic ! or zabardast ! But the fact remains whatever the camera captures or the digital screen displays, are to be seen and read by human eye. Visual input to the brain is through the eyesight, the brain can read only what the eyes will transmit.

Where I am going with all this? No where. But I can’t say I appreciate the way Google tried to dodge my question:) .

tajalli hai teri ye chaand kyaa hai chaandni kyaa hai
agar nazren salaamat hain to jalwon ki kami kyaa hai

Shakeel Badayuni – Laila Majnu(1953)

But I should not count my chickens here, as artificial intelligence may be able to transmit the perfect digital picture to human mind also, for all I know.

Like I said, give me such outdoorsy songs anytime, I am presenting the Shabbir Kumar Solo from “Betaab” filmed completely on location of the said ‘Betaab Valley”. In the song, Sunny Deol has found a “tasveer” of his childhood sweetheart Amrita Singh, in a magazine. He makes a cut out of the photo and sings this song, at his farm house, where he is shown to be rearing horses, and chickens etc.

In the movie Sunny Deol kidnaps Amrita Singh from her father’s house and keeps her in the farm house (seen the song) in a bid to remind her of their childhood friendship and love.

Some more trivia about the film:

• Singer Sonu Nigam played the role of Sunny Deol’s character as a child in this film.
• This film was remade in Telugu as “Samrat” (1987) and in Kannada as “Karthik” (2011).
• This was Javed Akhtar’s first film as a solo screenwriter after Salim – Javed split.
• Singer Shabbir Kumar got his big break in Hindi films when R.D. Burman got him to sing for all the songs in this film.

The movie must be something special to be remade in Telegu and Kannada, a reversal from what usually happens. I will elaborate the bit about Shabbir Kumar is the trivia above. It was said that, all songs of the film were to be recorded by Kishore Kumar. But since Kishore Kumar was away at the time, and the songs were needed for the scheduled shooting, they were recorded in the voices of Shabbir Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. The intention was to re-record the Shabbir Kumar portions afterwards in Kishore Kumar’s voice. But the songs turned out to be so well in Shabbir Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar’s voices, that it was decided to keep the songs as it is. And thus the career boost for Shabbir Kumar happened.

I will end the post with a dialogue (by Sunny Deol) in the film, where Amrita Singh refuses to eat the food cooked by Sunny Deol. This is the dialogue I have had to repeat sometimes to my kids, 🙂 🙂 if they disagreed with my cooking:

“Khaana hai to yahi khaana hai, nahi khaana hai to bhi yahi khaana hai”

Hullo Atuldom

“Coolie” was released on 2nd December 1983. It was produced by Ketan Desai and directed by Manmohan Desai. Kadar Khan was the script writer as also the dialogue writer. It starred Waheeda Rehman, Rati Agnihotri, Shoma Anand, Rishi Kapoor, Kadar Khan, Satyen Kappu, Goga Kapoor, Suresh Oberoi, Om Shivpuri, Nilu Phule, Ashalata (who passed away recently),and Shubha Khote, Amrish Puri and Mukri in guest appearances. Of course it had Manmohan Desai cast Amitabh Bachchan in the title role with an Eagle as his companion. The Eagle was called Allah Rakha in the movie.

The movie had Kadar Khan give some great dialogues to his characters, some of which were heavy duty and some were funny. For example Iqbal introduces himself with “Humaari taarif zara lambi hai. Bachpan se hain sar pe Allah ka haath aur Allahrakha hai apne saath. Baju pe 786 ka hai billa, 20 number ki bidi peeta hoon. kaam karta hoon coolie ka aur naam hai Iqbal”. He follows it up with “jiske sar pe pad jaaye haath bache na uska ek bhi baal” and that get smirks from the audience. Then during the course of a fight scene with Suresh Oberoi, Amitabh Bachchan picks up a Hammer and Sickle, holds it up in a particular fashion and mouths “Hum mazdooron ka seena lohe ki deewaar hai, aur yeh humaare hathyaar hain. Yeh humara pet paal bhi sakte hain aur tum jaison ka pet phaad bhi sakte hain”.

“Coolie” was a movie that was slammed by the critics as the worst ever etc. but was lapped up by the paying public. It has attained cult status over the years. Puneet Issar was just a villains’ henchman when he was signed for the movie but the fight sequence in which AB was hurt made Puneet Issar famous. And the smart Manmohan Desai froze the scene in the final cut of the movie and a message appears on screen marking it as the shot when AB was injured. Apparently this was done at Amitabh’s behest. That was the kind of relation that AB shared with Manji (as Mamohan Desai was called by his friends).

One thing was on display in 1982. The level of love that the public had for the actor by the name Amitabh Bachchan. When he lay comatose in a Bombay Hospital, a whole nation prayed for him. There were reports of how people made promises to their respective gods and even fulfilled them when he recovered and restarted work on 7th January 1983. It proved that the struggle that he had on the way to superstardom had borne fruit.

Just another matter that he was a good actor who made the incredible seem normal, like fighting a leopard, tiger and a crocodile at times, with bare hands (he was not the first one to do this onscreen) in “Khoon Pasina” and some other movies. He made it seem normal that a roadside orphan could grow up to be a well to-do do-gooder who is even benevolent on the man who insulted him when he was in his teens- remember “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”. He mastered rhythm and could move a leg to music without making a fool of himself. He was appreciated when he tried to sing in his tuneless style to begin with and he has sung around 20-30 songs in his career that started in 1969. Of course he has recited poems in “Kabhi Kabhi” and “Silsila”.

He has had a wide range of roles post 2000 when he switched tracks to play characters that are appropriate to his age. He has co-starred with heroes who are his children’s age group. He is one of the actors of that generation who still has movie-makers seek him with specific roles & movies. The other was Rishi Kapoor.

Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan have acted together in a number of movies first time being in “Kabhi Kabhi” 1976. Their first successes also came in the same year-1973. Rishi Kapoor’s “Bobby” and Amitabh Bachchan’s “Zanjeer”. The two were long time friends and the last time they collaborated was in “102 not out” in 2018.

This jodi has been my personal favourite from the first time I saw them. And it is but natural that I present this song of “Coolie”. It shows the two actors’ comic side. The two of them are not eyeing the same girl. Their target is the prize money that the girl’s father Mukri promises for bringing the girl back home. She has this penchant for running away from home and is in cahoots with Sunny (Rishi) who dons a new getup every time he drops her home. Only this time Iqbal has also spotted the girl and decides to drop her home and claim the prize money.

What I like about the song is the various outfits and wigs that AB and Chintu use. The detailing that has gone into draping Chintu with a dhoti that has extra width to cover the stilts when he is trying to compete with the elephant’s height. And also the pronounced jerks that AB and Shoma Anand experience when on the elephant which at first feels that they are having a camel ride.

This song is in the voices of Shailendra Singh and Shabbir Kumar. This movie was the first time AB had a different voice.
All in all a fun song to celebrate the 78th birthday of the superstar of the millennium who has also been given the epithet BigB.

wo chaand hai to aks bhi paani mein aayegaa
kirdaar khud ubhar ke kahaani mein aayegaa
(Iqbal Sajid)

Aks – reflection
Kirdaar – character

“jis ke paas koyi saboot nahin hota, kya wo kabhi beqasoor nahi ho sakta.”

This is the dialogue spoken by Meenakshi Sheshadri to Anil Kapoor, a lawyer, when he has refused to take her sister’s Beena’s case.  Meenakshi’s sister is a doctor and a patient dies in her private clinic, after she has administered a medicine to the patient. The medicine contains poison, and the bottle is already in the custody of the courts/police. There is no way anyone can prove that the patient did not die because of the medicine in that bottle. So all the lawyers are refusing the case and Meenakshi and the brother in law Parikshit Sahani, also a doctor, are running from pillar to post to find a lawyer who can defend Beena in the court.

The moment she says this dialogue, Anil Kapoor is transported to his childhood, when his mother Nutan had said the same words to the lawyer/ public prosecutor Amrish Puri, in defense of her husband Girish Karnad.  This whole story is in flash back – the story of Anil Kapoor, his sister and parents.

In the present, Anil Kapoor decides to defend Beena in the courts, and in true heroic style, drinks the medicine from the very bottle to prove that the patient did not die because of the medicine. Within minutes, the case is over, judgment delivered, Beena is ‘ba-izzat bari’.  Parikshit Sahani takes Anil Kapoor to the hospital immediately and treats him to save his life.  What happens to the actual culprit who put poison into the medicine bottle, I don’t know.

The court language in this type of films had glossary like ‘mulzim’ which is the one accused of a crime, ‘mujrim’ is the one whose crime is proved.  Crime is ‘jurm’ and ‘mere faazil dost’ means ‘my esteemed friend’ – this is how lawyers would refer to each other in front of a judge.

So with the case over, the doctors are grateful to Anil Kapoor and Meenakshi is in love with him. The doctors host a party to celebrate and Anil Kapoor on piano, again revives his child hood memory of the theme song at the party. This is Part-II of the song. After this party this dream sequence song, “Ae Mere Khwaabon Ke Shehzaade” comes up. This is a beach song, posted Peevicies’s mom and I have seen that song too just now. That song is one extravaganza on Madh island or Aksa beach and what is Meenakshi wearing in the last sequence? Looks as if she was trying to be a South Indian Cleopatra.

Now back to flashback:  Girish Karnad is convicted of a crime he did not commit. Nutan has tried in vain to get someone to fight her husband’s case against the formidable Amrish Puri. Their happy family is ruined, even as she manages to obtain a stay on the conviction of ‘sazaa-e-maut’, but reached late on the location. Girish Karnad has been hanged. After this I think, she loses her mind and is taken to mental Asylum.

Meanwhile the young children Anil Kapoor and the sister are left to fend for themselves in the big bad world. That is when Anil Kapoor is remembers the song that his mother and father used to sing, with his father on the piano, “Jeet Jaayenge Hum. . .”.  The song is highly motivational, though situational.  It is songs like these which make Laxmikant-Pyarelal such kings of the proverbial situational songs.  Theme song or not, the lyrics and composition is all more than apt for the mood and need of the script.  And to think that the script by Javed Akhtar originally had no scope for songs.

The events of childhood have a profound effect on the young Anil Kapoor and the song motivates him to keep fighting and to always hope and strive to win against all odds. And win he does, grows up to become a lawyer himself, struggles with the system and grows to achieve his goals step by step. All this while he is always conscious of how his mother’s struggles with the system to save his father from being punished from the crime which he has not committed. He has raised his younger sister Khushoo and who is now studying in a college. Anil Kapoor manages to trace his mother also and brings her home. But she is still not well and does not remember her children. Which is a cause for more pain, prompting Anil Kapoor to recall the childhood song again. This is when the Part-III of the song is played when Anil Kapoor and Meenakshi sing this song at home, hoping to revive Nutan’s memory and restore her mental health.

I thought, this was a movie made by GP Sippy, but turns out it was eventually made by Subhash Ghai.   Actually I found this song on YouTube a few days ago and saved the link to see it sometime. Today I got the time to see it and all the memory of the story, dialogue and songs etc. came rushing in the mind.

Jab itna kuchh likhne ke liye yaad aa gayaa to ek post to ban hi jaati hai. 🙂

The song is played multiple times throughout the film. This can’t be anyone other than Anand Bakshi’s doing, the lyrics I mean. Singers are Shabbir Kumar (in full Rafi mode) for Anil Kapoor, Nitin Mukesh for Girish Karnad and Lata Mangeshkar for Nutan, Meenakshi Sheshadri and Khushboo.

It shows that successful people have motivation for success, early in life and have to be ready for struggle. Come what may, we will not give up. Because life is always a struggle, even if one cannot foresee the difficulties to come. ‘Jung’ is not war here, but an avowal not to give up against adversities. In every way, it is struggle to succeed and defeat the bad. And this struggle starts with self to improve the self and its abilities and make them pure, truthful, honest and trustworthy. Because to do ‘jung’ with your lot is to do ‘jidd-o-jahad’ i.e. to struggle and strive.

I found a poem in the photos which I had taken in the hotel at Jaipur, during our vacation visit earlier this year.  I am searching the net for the name of the poet but even Rekhta.com is not having the works of this poet.  The title of the poem is ‘Kuchh Kehna Chaahta Hoon”.

tum kuchh lafz
musta’aar de do
main bolna chaahta hoon

mere lafzon ke haathh
ab sar par aa chuke hain
jaise haarey huye sipaahi

wo itna jhooth pee chuke hain
sach keh nahin sakte

apaahij, beemar aur za’eefon ki tarah
un ko sirf taknaa aata hai

tum kuchh lafz
musta’aar de do
main kuchh kehnaa chaahta hoon.

Musta’aar – lend, loan for a while.
Apaahij – handicap
Za’eef – aged, frail with age

Blog Day : 3737 Post No. : 14686

Hullo all in Atuldom

11th October. A day when all fans of the star of the millennium go on overdrive to wish him on his blog page, Facebook page, Twitter handle etc. He also has kept pace with these new age phenomena and is very active on these social networking sites, either himself or through his well-paid staff. I am no different, I also wish him on his twitter and blog page (in existence for the last 10 years), and wait for a day in my life when I may get a chance to see him in person- my family thinks I am crazy, never mind that 🙂 . (The closest I have come to standing with him is when I visited Madame Tussauds in London, in 2015). So is the case with our blog, I try to write a post every year for this date.

Happy Birthday to you Dear Amitabh Bachchan.

What do I write about this actor that has not been said before. He is, in absolute sense of the term, not a great actor and its about time we should admit it. But he has a quality called persistence that helped him in the initial stages of his career; when he didn’t give up even after a string of flops before ‘Zanjeer’ (1973) and ‘Deewar’ (1975) happened. He has another quality – eye for detail. I have heard from a friend of mine (she used to be an assistant to Prakash Mehra in the 80s) about how during the filming of ‘Jaadugar’ (1989) he used to check every bit of his costume and take care of continuity from one scene to another. One other quality that he has is valuing time and it has been said by many of his co-stars how they were forced to turn up for shoots on time when Amitabh was their co-actor.

In the recent episode of ‘Rangoli’ on Doordarshan I heard how his style of wrapping a handkerchief around his hand and of pushing his hand into his trouser pockets came about. It is a known fact that Amitabh Bachchan is very accident prone and on Diwali, in 1983 or 84, a sparkler or some firecracker burst in his hand and he had the burn scar for some time (this was widely reported in the newspapers back then), this was also the time when he was shooting for “Inquilaab” and “Shaarabi” and these are the movies where he puts his hand into his trousers. Another example to show that he valued time and didn’t ask for a break in the shoot to recover from the scars.

He has been ever grateful to people who stood by him in his worst times be they producers, directors, actors anyone. I suppose these are some qualities that have helped sustain his charisma all through these 50 years in Bollywood. Wow! 50 years and still active!!

No more from me about my favourite actor.

He made a great team with Manmohan Desai and gave us movies which, though not-entirely logical or believable, were extremely entertaining. If in ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ (1977) Manmohan Desai rescued Amitabh’s mother from the clutches of Jeewan and Ranjeet with the help of a snake, in ‘Mard’ (1985) it was a tiger. In addition, the tiger guides the mother (the eternal ‘Maa’ – Nirupa Roy) towards a waiting boat, pulling her by the ‘pallu’ as if it were a pet dog on a leash. The icing on the cake is the scene when ‘Maa’ bows before the tiger, and it raises its paw to bless her. Man Desai also improved upon Amitabh’s famous ‘Deewar’ scene of remonstrating before the Lord Almighty – he made him sing a song to ‘Maa Sheronwaali’ in ‘Mard’, threatening Her with dire consequences if he cannot or does not meet his mother. And sure enough, by the time the song ends, his mother manages to reach the temple. Thank god for Manmohan Desai’s imagination and Amitabh believing in him.

It is Navaratri time and there is a lot of religious fervour happening all round. In all the states of South India, we have ‘Bomma Kolu‘- Bomma means dolls and Kolu is the artistic arrangement of these on seven tier stands which people display in their homes for nine days, have guests over for haldi-kumkum etc. Western India celebrates the festival with Mata ki Aarti followed by Garba and Dandiya. The festival is called ‘Durga Pooja‘ in Eastern India and there are sarvajanik pandals (temporary worshipping places) where idols of the Mother Goddess with her sons – Ganesh and Kartikeya and other devis – Lakshmi and Saraswati, are installed. And North India has the Navratri with Devi Pooja as well as Ram Leela, the staging of the play based on the life story of Lord Ram. All in all, an enjoyable festival culminating with Dussehra on the 10th day.  Happy Navratri to all.

The song with this post is the Mata ki Bhent (song in worship of the Mother Goddess) that Amitabh sings in ‘Mard’. Playback singer is Shabbir Kumar with Anu Malik being the music director and Indeewar the lyricist.

A few more points about the song – how did anyone allow the tangewala (Amitabh) to light the camphor in his palm? Does lighting the camphor on kumkum covered palm protect the palm from getting burnt? Please note the reaction of the temple pujari (priest) when Amitabh tries to poke himself with the trishul. Is anyone allowed to anoint an idol with blood?

Let us enjoy this masaaledaar song. 🙂

Happy Birthday Amitabh Bachchan.

Song – Maa Sheronwaali O Maa Sheronwaali (Mard) (1985) Singer – Shabbir Kumar, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Anu Malik

ya meri maa ka roop tu dhar le

माँ मेरी माँ से मिला दे मुझे
ममता का मैं वास्ता दूँ तुझे
दर से ना तेरे जाऊंगा खाली
माँ शेरोंवाली
ओ माँ शेरोंवाली

माँ चुप है बेटा रोता है
ऐसा जग में कब होता है
माँ चुप है बेटा रोता है
ऐसा जग में कब होता है
पत्थर के मंदिर में रह कर
दिल भी क्या तेरा माँ हो गया पत्थर
दिल भी क्या तेरा माँ हो गया पत्थर
तेरी दया को जगा दूँगा
रो कर मैं तुझको रुला दूँगा
पिघलेगी कब तू पहाड़ोंवाली

मेरा दुख पहचाने तो जानूँ
जो ना दिखाई माँ की सूरत
उठा ले जाऊंगा मैं तेरी मूरत
उठा ले जाऊंगा मैं तेरी मूरत
सब कुछ है धनवालों का
निर्धन के बस मात पिता
दौलत ये मेरी क्यों तू ने छुपा ली
माँ शेरोंवाली
ओ माँ शेरोंवाली
माँ शेरोंवाली

त्रिशूल तेरा उठा लूँगा
चरणों पे सर को चढ़ा दूँगा
रंग देगी तुझको लहू की लाली
माँ शेरोंवाली
ओ माँ शेरोंवाली
