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”

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.
