Today’s song is from the film Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania-2014.

In the morning of 2nd September 2021, all the newspapers had the Front page news about the death of Bollywood’s young actor Sidharth Shukla, by Heart attack. They also flashed his photo. Looking at his photo, I thought he was quite a good looking macho fellow. Unlike my daily habit of reading only the headings of news ( rarely any news is worth reading these days), I read the complete news of Sidharth’s death- in Times of India and Maharashtra Times. I was surprised that such a healthy, athletic looking young man should get a Heart Attack and die of it !

Out of curiosity, I looked for his Bio-Data on the Internet and frankly, I was more than impressed. A boy from a middle class family in Bombay had achieved so much in so short a period-2005 to 2021, that it was just short of a Miracle. I seriously wanted to know more about him, his achievements, his desires, family, his career and his death.

Yesterday, the whole day, I was looking for information about him on the Internet and after learning enough about him, I thought he deserved a special post on our Blog. In the normal routine, I would not write a post on any recent film ( only because I am not in tune with modern cinema), but then this was an unusual event which I thought called for going deep into why such successful artistes die so early.

I came across an interview of Dr. Ashwini Mehta, Cardiologist in Sir Gangaram Hospital, Delhi, on this issue. He is of the opinion that even if the person is perfect in physical health, goes to Gym regularly etc, work stress and an unnatural desire to always remain fit can lead to Heart attack. The methods that artistes adopt to remain ever young are harmful. In case of Sidharth, he was brought dead to the Hospital. His Post Mortem report coming today has not revealed the exact cause. It expresses a doubt that perhaps excess Protein Diet could be one reason. More test reports are awaited.

The show business world is a killing one. On one hand it gives you name, fame and Money and on the other hand it kills you if you attempt to maintain these things beyond a limit by adopting wrong methods. There are many examples. I recollect reading somewhere that even Sri Devi did everything possible to remain beautiful always, till she succumbed to these very attempts.

In the last few years, there have been several unnatural deaths of young and upcoming artistes who adopted too much effort to remain happy and in public eyes all the time. This in turn gave them mental stress. few such examples of recent times are Sushant Rajput, Arathi Agarwal, Jiah Khan, Divya Bharati, Taruni Sachdev, Pratyusha Banerjee, Nafisa Joseph, Kuljit Randhava etc etc.

I gathered the life story of Sidharth Shukla from various sources on the internet. It is simply an outstanding career. However, now we know what attempts he used to adopt and at what cost…His Life !

The film Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania-2014 was having everything in it which the younger generation wanted. The lead pair of Varun Dhawan (son of director David Dhawan) and Alia Bhatt(Daughter of director Mahesh Bhatt) came with filmi background. It does help. The film was released on 11-7-2014. It grossed 120 crores on a budget of 33 crores. The seven songs were written byKumaar, Irshad Kaamil and Shashank Khaitan who also wrote the story as well as directed the film. One song was sung by Alia Bhatt also. The cast of the film was Varun Dhawaqn, Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Shukla, Ashutosh rana, Gaurav Pandey, Shivani Mahajan and many more. The music was by Sachin-Jigar and Shaarib-Toshi. The film story was…..

Kavya Pratap Singh (Alia Bhatt), a beautiful, educated and stylish Punjabi girl from Ambala who is set to be engaged to an NRI American doctor, decides to go to Delhi to buy an expensive designer bridal dress for her wedding, after her father, Kamaljeet (Ashutosh Rana), refuses to get her the pricey dress. While staying at her maternal uncle’s house, she comes across one of his students, Rakesh “Humpty” Kumar Sharma (Varun Dhawan), a young and flirtatious Punjabi boy in Delhi, whose father, Vinod Kumar Sharma, runs a stationery shop. Humpty, with the help of his friends, Shonty (Gaurav Pandey) and Poplu, chases Kavya, but she’s not interested. He, however, manages to befriend her. Kavya confides in Humpty, that her friend in Delhi, Gurpreet Sodhi, was blackmailed by her ex-boyfriend, who had secretly filmed a sex sequence of the two.

Humpty stumbles upon an idea for victimizing Gurpreet’s ex-boyfriend that would also avenge Gurpreet, and also gather the money for the wedding dress for Kavya. They manage to get some money but Kavya isn’t happy about the way that money is obtained. However, these ensuing adventures make Kavya fall for Humpty, and the night before she is to leave for Ambala, they Have Sex and end up sleeping together. When Humpty asks her if she loves him, she says she won’t go against Kamaljeet’s wishes. In order to help Humpty get the money for Kavya’s dress, Vinod, Poplu and Shonty chip in their savings. Kavya reluctantly accepts the money and leaves Delhi.

Kavya is a changed person when she arrives home. She tells her family that she has decided not to buy that expensive dress. In the meantime, she gifts a fancy car to Humpty using that money, as she had known from him about Vinod’s dream for a car. Overwhelmed, Humpty and his friends go to Ambala, where he tries to win over Kavya. Kamaljeet believes firmly in arranged marriages against love marriages, as his elder daughter, Swati, married against his wishes and the marriage turned out to be a disaster ending in divorce. Kamaljeet instantly disapproves of Humpty, and gets the three friends beaten up. Upon repeated persuasion, he gives Humpty a chance to find at least one reason why Kavya shouldn’t marry Angad (Sidharth Shukla). He sets him a five-day deadline to give him the reason. Humpty and his friends try their best to find flaws in Angad but fail to do so.

At the end of the deadline and on her wedding day, Kavya runs away from home and calls Humpty to join her on a train to leave town, but he refuses and convinces Kavya to get off the train. Meanwhile, Kamaljeet and the rest of the family reach the train station, where Kavya and Humpty are embracing each other. Kamaljeet, wrongly assuming the pair was eloping, is enraged and hits Humpty, who gives a powerful and touching explanation saying that he may not be as rich, successful or good-looking as Angad, but he loves Kavya from the core of his heart. He leaves Ambala and heads back to Delhi after that incident. When Kavya is dressed up as a bride, Kamaljeet asks her if she still fancies that expensive wedding dress. She replies she’s not fit for an expensive classy dress, but is suitable for local dresses. As it dawns on Kamaljeet that her relationship would be fuller with Humpty and not Angad, he brings everyone to Delhi where he approaches Humpty and gives his consent to marry his daughter.

With this song, film Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania-2014 makes its debut on this Blog.

With the 300th post behind me, I can really get on with my regular song posts. I missed a few anniversary posts in November and December, but a few are coming up in the remaining days of December.

How does one start a birthday post for controversy’s favourite child? I have a little doubt whether he is controversy’s favourite child or controversy is his favourite child.

To be truthful, I stumbled upon this RFAK song link shared by someone on facebook. The songs of this movie and the movie itself has been kept fresh, not by frequent viewing on TV, but the songs which keep coming back to mind, with each subsequent song in the inevitable ‘eid release’ Salman Khan movies every passing year. I was an infrequent visitor to the theatre still in 2010. After ‘Dabangg’ came ‘Dabangg 2’ and ‘Dabangg 3’, to make the list of successful sequels.

I have discovered that Salman Khan’s full name is Abdul Rashid Salim Salman Khan. He is born on 27th December 1965, so he is turning 55 in 2020. That makes him 45 in 2010, when this movie ‘Dabangg’ released, which figures. A lot is there on the net and media about Salman Khan’s personal life and conduct, which has made him the favourite child of controversy. The media makes or breaks these people superstars or non-stars, so it is a two-sided coin. This show-biz is more murky waters now than it was, say, 50 years ago.

60 or 70 years ago, only the extremely poor were making their daughters join the film industry, as it was not known as a good profession. Very few girls from well to do families, or from the really noble families were working in the film industry. Even the filmy families who made it big would not allow their daughters or daughter-in-laws to work in films. Kapoor family is a case in point. Babita went against the family traditions and launched Karishma in films. But in recent decades things have changed a lot. It is no longer a case of question of survival for most of the stars or actors working in films and show business today. They are ready to go to whatever length they are required to earn name and fame and the resultant moolah. It is better not to judge anyone for their deeds and misdeeds. They need the media and the media needs them, so the circus goes on.

I would rather mention the positives, like Salman Khan’s charity work. Or the good unpretentious work he does to give back to the society. He does his bit, with or without media attention. There is a very good reason for his title as ‘bhai’. It is not just Salim Khan’s good offices that have taken him out of a few soups, that’s what I have heard.

Coming back to the song from ‘Dabangg’, it is two version song, one is a solo with chorus by Rahat Fateh Ali khan, second is a duet version by RFAK and Shreya Ghoshal.

Faaiz Anwar is the lyricist and composers are Sajid -Wajid. The duo Sajid-Wajid are borthers and sons of Sharafat Ali khan, a table player. Wajid was younger of the two and he expired on June 1, 2020, after he had a major operation for Kidney transplant in March 2020.

The song I am presenting is one of the best songs of year 2010. There was no Binaca geet mala then as there is no such thing now, but this song would have featured on such a programme. This song is unique that the mukhda is being sung by two different types of male choruses and I detect RFAK’s voice in both choruses, one a normal mode of singing and second in classical qawwali style. RFAK has vast invaluable experience of live singing with his uncle Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, as a chorus companion and singing alaaps during his long qawwali renditions. The experience shows in qawwali-cum-sugam sangeet songs like these, where the pitch is different for the solo version and the duet version.

I rather think these songs sung by RFAK were not actually composed by the music directors assigned. Most likely they were just credited to the music director of the film but were actually composed by RFAK himself, be it Himesh Reshammiya, Sajid-Wajid, Vishal-Shekhar or Vishal Bharadwaj. The quota was usually one song per film only.

The duet version song is picturized on Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha(daughter of Shatrughan Sinha). Both look good in their role play, as a police inspector and a poor pottery maker. The movie is making its debut in the blog, with this earthy and natural sounding song.

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 20
————————————-

‘Aarohan’ (The Ascension, 2011 – Bangla film) was directed by Pinaki Choudhuri who wrote story and screen-play for the film. Soumitra Chatterjee and Sandhya Roy who were 76 and 69 years of age respectively at the time of making of this film were in the lead roles. The other supporting cast included Shamdarshi Dutta, Rituparna Sengupta (special appearance), Siddharth Chatterjee, Tulika Basu, Ashok Mukherjee, Rajesh Sharma, Nandini Chatterjee (special appearance) etc.

This film was selected for Montreal International Film Festival (2010) even before it was released in India. Pinaki Choudhury, the film’s director, in an interview, had said that he had read in a newspaper article about Mukti Bhavan in Varanasi where people who are about to die are given shelter for one month. He visited the place and spent few days with the inmates of the Bhavan. He was fascinated by the philosophy of the inmates who believe that dying in Varanasi give them salvation thus breaking the endless cycles of birth and death. Based on his experience, he wrote the story revolving around a patriarch of the family who decides to shift to Mukti Bhavan in Varanasi expecting that he would die within a month of his stay as per the prediction based on his horoscope.

It is not an easy decision for the old man to shift to Mukti Bhavan in Varanasi. There are clashes of thoughts between him and his aged wife, between him and his grandson also his friend. All of them react differently but for the same purpose of preventing him from going to Varanasi.

The film opens with a scene in which the 75-year old Surya Shekhar Chatterjee (Soumitra Chatterjee) while trying to cross a busy road in Kilkata is about to be hit by a speeding car when a young photographer saves him in the nick of time from the accident. Surya Shekhar is grateful to the photographer and invites him to his house.

Surya Shekhar is the firm believer in the horoscope. All predictions made on the basis of his horoscope has, so far, come true. One of the future predictions of his horoscope is that there will be threat to his life at the age of 75. And that threat was about to become true if the photographer had not saved him from the accident. Now he is fully convinced about his impending death as per the prediction in his horoscope. So, he plans to shift to Mukti Bhavan in Varanasi to attain salvation upon his death.

Surya Shekhar shares his plan with his wife (Sandhya Roy). She opposes his plan by saying that she had always supported him in his decisions but she would not agree for his shifting to Mukti Bhavan. But Surya Shekhar is adamant on his decision. His wife requests one of his close friends to counsel him to abandon his plan to stay in Mukti Bhavan. His friend tries to dissuade him from his plan by saying that what he is doing is not a faith but the plain superstition in believing the predictions. The young photographer who had saved him from the accident also tries to convince him by saying that astrology is not a science and no one can predict the future. But Surya Shekhar ends the debate by saying that Varanasi is his life’s last halting station.

As a flash back, Surya Shekhar does not have a good rapport with his son as the latter ridicules him for his so much dependence on the horoscopes. Their relation goes for the worst when the son decides to marry a girl outside his caste and that too without matching the horoscopes. Son gets married and settles down in the US. The son and his family had become persona non grata in Surya Shekhar’s house. Both father and son have not spoken to and seen each other for the last 25 years though his wife and the daughter-in-law are in communication with each other.

Surya Shekhar had not talked to his son when latter had a heart attack. He held a firm view that as per his horoscope, his son would not die before his death. Surya Shekhar has not even spoken and seen the face of his young grandson born and studied in the US who has come to India on a short vacation. The young photographer who had earlier saved Surya Shekhar is none other than his grandson Arijit (Samadarshi Dutta) which is revealed to Surya Shekhar by his wife while nominating him as the heir for his fixed deposits after his death.

Surya Shekhar departs for Varanasi along with his wife. Arijit accompanies them which would also give him the glimpses of Varanasi which has its unique character as a pilgrimage centre. The first few days of their stay in Varanasi goes well during which time he comes to know from the Manager of Mukti Bhavan that some old people who had come to die here have to make a revisit a number of times as they survived on each of their one-month stay. To hasten his death, Surya Shekhar decides to forgo dinner and also reduces his intake of food. The weakness caused by low intake of food makes him almost bedridden.

One day, Surya Shekhar get a mild chest pain. Since doctors are not permitted to visit Mukti Bhavan, Arijit informs his parents about his grandfather’s deteriorating health. Both his son and daughter-in-law rush to Varanasi to see him. Despite his son firmly telling him that by foregoing food he is in fact committing suicide, Surya Shekhar is not in a mood to argue with his son as he is destined to die in the next few days.

Parallelly, events are happening in Varanasi when Arijit gets involved with a married village woman from Bihar (Rituparna Sengupta) who also stays in the Mukti Bhavan with her mother-in-law who has also checked in for salvation. Her husband is a gay but her mother-in-law curses her being ‘baanj’ (barren) almost every day. Fed-up with her every day’s tantrums, daughter-in-law challenges her by saying that one day she will prove that she is not a baanjh. Her clandestine relation with Arijit results in her becoming pregnant. When her mother-in-law comes to know about it, she dies of shock. Now, the Bihari woman has to vacate the Mukti Bhavan. She becomes homeless as she has nowhere to stay with her illegitimate pregnancy. Seeing her predicament, Arijit decides to marry her and reveals his intention as such to his parents who at that moment are with his grandfather.

Arijit’s parents are shocked to know that he is going to marry not only a married woman but also outside his caste. Both of them oppose his proposal. But Arijit is adamant. In a fit of anger, Arijit’s father tries to slap him during which time, he gets a heart attack and dies in the Mukti Bhavan. Arijit performs his last rites at Varanasi Ghat. Surya Shekhar’s wife points out to her husband that he had said that the son would not die when he is alive. She questions him as to whose salvation he had predicted from the horoscope. After listening to his wife, Surya Shekhar takes out his horoscope from his pocket and tears it. He goes with his grandson to immerse his son’s ashes in the River Ganga. Arijit goes back to US with an assurance to his grandparents that he would soon return to India.

While returning to their room in Mukti Bhavan, Surya Shekhar finds the Bihari woman sitting with her meagre belonging at the Ghat. The film ends with Surya Shekhar asking the Bihari woman to accompany them to Kolkata where he has an old house. He would construct a bigger house where all of them would stay together. And that would be his salvation and emancipation.

This is the first time I watched the Dada Saheb Phalke Award winner, Soumitra Chatterjee in a lead role of 75-year old man in which he has got full scope to show his histrionic. He is well supported by equally talented Sandhya Roy with her excellent performance. I liked the young Samdarshi Dutta in the role of US returned grandson. His dialogues are in American accented English with American mannerism. Yet his character requires him to tune with the Indian ethos. It was a bit difficult role for him, that too in front of the senior actors which he has admirably performed. Ritupurna Sengupta in a role of a Bihari village woman has done a commendable performance of a rustic village woman with her dialogues in colloquial Hindi. All in all, it is a good film to watch.

In the DVD of the film I watched, there are 3 songs of which two are in Bengali and one in Hindi. In addition, there are two short Hindustani classical renderings by Ustad Rashid Khan in the background. I am presenting Hindi song ‘dil ko chura kar chale jaana na’ sung by Shreya Ghoshal which is picturised on Rituparna Sengupta who is in her beautiful dream sequence in Bollywood style. Samadarshi Dutta is also seen in the sequence. While lyricist of the song is unidentified, it is set to music by Suparna Kanti Ghosh.

Enjoy the beautiful interlude music from esraj (a musical instrument which produces the mixed sound of sitar and sarangi) and the flute along with the song.

Hindi Songs from Bangla Films : 19
—————————————————–

‘Jogajog’ (Relationship, 2015) was a Bangla film which was based on a novel of the same name written by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore and published in 1929. The film was directed by Shekhar Das. The main cast included Bhartya Basu, Suvalagna Mukherjee, Ananya Chatterjee, Arjun Chakraborty, Shaheb Chatterjee, Locket Chatterjee etc. By the way, Bhartya Basu, the lead actor in the film was the MLA and the Minister of Tourism of the Government of West Bengal when the film’s shooting started. It was a debut film for the lead actress, Suvalogna Mukherjee.

Unfortunately, the film is not available on video sharing platforms. So, I had to depend upon the English edition of Tagore’s novel which is available online as well as review of the film on the Times of India. Having gone through both the sources, I get an impression that the film’s director, Shekhar Das has, by and large, adhered to the story of the novel including the names of the characters. The novel itself is a commentary on the declining influence of aristocracy of landlords in Bengal Presidency from early 20th Century and the emergence of neo-rich business class and their clash of culture and values. It is a feminist novel but at the end, it is the defeat for the female protagonist in the novel.

The gist of the story of the film is as under:

The story revolves around the hostility of two families – the Chatterjees and the Ghoshals. The Chatterjees are landlords whose fortunes have declined while that of Ghoshals have improved considerably thanks to their flourishing business. Bipradas Chatterjee (Arjun Chakraborty), current head of Chatterjee family is indebted to Madhusudan Ghoshal (Bratya Basu), the middle-aged head of Ghoshal family. To resolve the debt issue, Madhusudhan offers Bipradas to marry his younger sister, Kumudini (Suvalogna Mukherjee), a strong-willed, religious minded and cultured girl. She agrees to get married to Madhusudan who is twice her age to save her elder brother from the clutches of indebtedness to Ghoshals.

From the day Kumudini comes to Madhusudhan’s house after her marriage, she is assigned a subsidiary status in an already dysfunctional Ghoshal family in which there is a hen-pecked younger brother, a sister-in-law, Shyamasundari (Ananya Chatterjee) who has become widow at a young age. Kumuduni carries out her work in the household which is expected of a married woman. As she has been brought up in a cultured family where women have been treated equal with their men folks, Kumudini finds Ghoshal house exactly opposite of her cultural upbringing. Here she is treated as a sub-servient to Madhusudan as well as an object of his sexual desires. His vulgar display of wealth and the rustic way of conversations with her puts her off to such an extent that she develops aversion towards her husband. Added to her woos is Madhusudan’s illicit relationship with his sister-in-law, Shyamasundari. With these background , she takes recourse to spirituality. She identifies herself with Meerabai and find solace in singing Meera bhajans.

Over a period of time, Kumudini is subjected to emotional trauma and the marital rape. Not able to cope up with her emotional trauma any more, Kumudini comes back to her elder brother’s house. He gives her assurance that she is not a burden on him. On the contrary, it is her right to be in his house. However, when Kumudini’s pregnancy is revealed, her elder brother does not agree with Kumudini to get her liberation from the marriage as she is carrying Madhusudhan’s child. He justifies his stand by saying that it is not right to deprive the child from the father’s home. Kumudini is sent back to the Ghoshal household.

In a way, it is a defeatist end in the novel to Kumudini. Probably, Tagore went with the stark reality of that time. Since director, Shekhar Das had made this film in the 21st century, the film’s end comes with some minor changes so as not to make the film with a defeatist end for Kumudini. I have seen the end part of a pirated version of the film on a video sharing platform in which Madhusudhan visits Chatterjee’s house and meets Kumudini privately. He tenders his apology to Kumudini for his wrongdoings and request her to come back home.

‘Jogajog’ (2015) has two Meera bhajans of which I am presenting one of the most popular and famous bhajans ‘mere to Giridhar Gopal doosro na koi’. The bhajan is rendered by Shreya Ghosal whom I consider as ‘Lata Mangeshkar of 21st century insofar as per playback singing is concerned. I have watched her growing from the winner of ZEE TV’s ‘sa re ga ma’(children) programme sometime in the 90s and her first playback singing for Hindi film ‘Devdas’ (2002) and thereafter. I still remember the confidence and the pose with which she rendered a song in front of stalwarts like Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Ustad Zakir Hussain, Girija Devi, Anil Biswas etc on the dais and many more stalwarts in the audience.

The song is picturised on Suvalogna Mukherjee and Bratya Basu is an impatient listener. The bhajan is set to music by Pandit Debojyoti Bose who is a Sarod player and a disciple of Sarod Maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan. He is more into concerts than the music director.

I checked and found out that this Meera bhajan has been a part of more than a dozen Hindi films from 1932 onward. The singers varied from Zubieda, Sitara Kanpuri, M S Subbulaxmi, Mangeshkar sisters (Lata, Asha, Usha) to Vaani Jayraman. This is not an exhaustive list. There may be more singers in non-film segment.

I find Shreya’s Ghoshal’s version of this popular Meera bhajan equally pleasing to listen.

Hullo Atuldom

November has dawned. Here is the first birthday post of the month.

It is the birthday of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. This gorgeous Miss World 1994 is also a Padma award winner along with awards for Best Actress (Ham Dil De Chuke Sanam) and Best Actress in a supporting role as Parvati (Devdas).

She made her debut in movies after a brief stint as ramp model and modelling for products like Lux and Coca Cola where she appeared with Aamir Khan. Prior to that she had appeared in an ad for Pepsi with Amir Khan and Ritu Chaudhry (a.k.a Mahima Chaudhry) – remember the ad where the girls are Amir’s new neighbours and he jumps out of his window to run across and get a Pepsi for the girls and tries to impress them and Aishwarya appears as Sanjana at the end. I found other ads featuring Aishwarya on YouTube for products like watches, beauty creams etc. The next step after modelling was movies which happened with the Mani Ratnam directed Tamil film “Iruvar” (1997) with Mohanlal, Revathi, Prakash Raj as co-stars. She made her Hindi debut the same year with “Aur Pyar Ho Gaya” opposite Bobby Deol. And then she has not looked back. She has played a passionate artist in “Kandukondain Kandukondain” (Tamil) 2000, Tagore’s Binodini in “Choker Bali” (Bengali) 2003, depressed woman in “Raincoat’’ (Hindi) 2004, Kiranjit Ahluwalia -a much abused wife who got international attention for burning her husband to death- “Provoked’’ a British-drama genre movie in 2006, a nurse looking after a paralyzed magician turned Radio Jockey who has filed a petition seeking permission to end his life in “Guzaarish’’ in 2010. All the movies that I mentioned here gave her critical acclaim and she had a good number of successful critical and mass appeal films. She has proved the general thought wrong that a heroine loses her popularity and star appeal once married and a mother at that. She has been under public scrutiny for everything that she does but keeps mum and doesn’t reply to the trolls that she is subjected to. Isn’t that noteworthy?

A few years back, for my niece’s wedding, I had purchased a saree which my sister-in-law loved very much and was looking for a similar one only in a different colour combination. I tried to assist her in finding that or a similar saree in the combo she wanted. I am happy to say I finally managed to get it for her on my recent trip to Calcutta (now Kolkata) during Durga Puja. I am sure this sudden off-track by me has jolted the reader into thinking what is the connection with Aishwarya Rai!!

Well it is connected with the song that is coming with this post. It is the almost like the saree that all the ladies are wearing in this song (disclaimer: neither the song nor the movie was reason for my sis-in-law’s liking for the said combination; she doesn’t even know of its connection with Aishwarya 🙂  )

Another connection is that this song happens at a huge haveli in old Calcutta for Durga Puja. It is from the 2002 Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed “Devdas” based on the book of the same name by Sharath Chandra Chattopadhyay. We have Aishwarya Rai dancing with Madhuri Dixit (another heroine whose popularity has not decreased post marriage and kids) at the Sindhoor- Khela which is an essential part of Dussehra during Durga Puja.

The song is in the voice of Shreya Ghosal, Kavita Krishnamurthy and KK. It was written by Nusrat Badr and Ismail Durbar was the composer. Saroj Khan is the choreographer for this magnificent dance which had the two heroines looking extremely gorgeous and they matched step-for-step brilliantly.

It is a song which is my personal favourite 2-heroine dance and I don’t think I will ever tire of seeing it. The choreography got Saroj Khan her 8th Filmfare award and it must be the only song which has a Wikipedia page.

I suggest a visit to the page (dola re dola   ) for interesting trivia about the song.

Today “Devdas” version 2002 makes its debut on the blog to Wish the blue-green eyed Miss World, Miss Photogenic and Miss World Continental Queen of Beauty – Asia- Oceania (sub titles that she won at the Miss world pageant held in Suncity -South Africa) a very Happy Birthday.

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 12
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Cannot believe that we have reached the milestone of 15k on the blog. Just seems like yesterday that we were all waiting with bated breath to reach the 10k milestone. How time flies, and how consistent and persistent all of you have been. No words to express each one of your dedication, passion and labour of love.

What can one say about this haven of ours that has not been said before? For someone like me who has been like a pardesi in some ways (not being active as all the regulars), it is so heartening when all of you still reach out and ask how things are with me and family.

Team ASAD we could equate with the CSK team in IPL, consistent, champions and liked by one and all. Needless to say, we have calm, composed leaders to lead us too 🙂 .

It does feel guilty that our Yippeeee! team could not continue our work after a point of time, and yet there is hope that we would get back to it one day soon and try really hard to get to the ever moving target of the blog :).

These days, the only place I get to listen to songs is the car, and most of the times, it is what my daughter decides to play that we get to listen to. One of the recent numbers that is pretty much on repeat in her current playlist is a lovely song from the upcoming movie that most people are looking forward to called ‘Kalank’.

The song has been picturised so well, and is even better thanks to two amazingly talented actors, Madhuri Dixit and Alia Bhatt. The voice for these two are the versatile Shreya Ghoshal and Vaishali Mhade. For some reason, when you listen to this song multiple times, reminds us of songs sung by the Mangeshkar sisters (the names of the songs do not come to mind).

Though Pritam is accused many a time to blatantly copy songs for his tracks in movies, he does come up with some brilliant numbers that forces you to play them in a loop.

I know I have not done justice to this article celebrating the 15k milestone of the blog, nor the song featured here, but I am hoping the article would be the last thing on your mind after you listen to this beautiful number which has such an amazing tempo and so well rendered.

Wishing Atul ji, Sudhir ji, Arun ji, Khyati Ben, Raja ji and the entire paltan and followers of the blog, a very big Congratulations! This is no mean achievement, and I am sure for the celebration we can expect some amazing trivia and posts to reach even more unique milestones with this one big milestone. Let the force be with our blog.

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Founders of Infosys (who started their venture reportedly on a Rs 10K seed capital) may not have imagined where their efforts will lead to, one day. Apple company, which started their journey from a garage, may not have guessed how big they will grow one day.  Atul Ji when he single-handedly started this blog (with moral encouragement from friends like Raja Ji – as I understand & others who showed thumbs up at that time) may not have had an idea how far the journey will progress.

But here we – Atulites – are, looking at 15000 posts!!!!. No mean feat in the era of information & social media explosion. No success is without a reason. I would say that sheer commitment, passion, dedication of Atul Ji,  Sudhir ji, Arun Ji, Sadanand Ji and all the other contributors & innumerable visitors to the blog have helped to make it to where we are today. Acha lagata hai na?

This post utilises three punch words, all prompted by today’s song.  They are : ‘achha lagata hai’, ‘seedhe point pe aao na’  & ‘short me batalao na’.

I have covered ‘achha lagata hai’ in first para. I will now ‘come to the point’ in this Para  🙂 . Today’s song is from film ‘Aarakshan’ (2011). After ‘permission’ from seniors, to write on recent songs, I have chosen this one. This film makes its debut in ASAD, with this post.

The film is by Prakash Jha on the topic of reservation. I have seen this movie. It was not at all hard hitting as I expected. But I loved the music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy. The singers are Mohit Chauhan & Shreya Ghoshal. Lyrics are by Prasoon Joshi. I took to this song from the word Go. Fresh tune, feel young lyrics, joyously sung, lovingly enacted by Saif & Deepika, exciting orchestration are what appealed to me. ‘sun ke achha laga‘. I hope aap ko bhi achha lagega . I feel young all over again listening to this song 🙂 .

Today’s generation loves to keep it short – no patience for details/clarity, eh?  ‘LOL’, ‘ASAP’ ‘ILU’ and such short forms are the flavour of the youngsters. Hence, as for the last punch word ‘short me batalao na’, I end this post. 🙂

Chorus

Lyrics (Based on Audio Version)

jhatak kar zulf jab tum
tauliye se baarishein azaad karti ho
achha lagta hai
hila kar honth jab bhi
haule haule guftagu ko saaz karti ho
achha lagta hai

oo oo oo
khushboo se behlaao na
seedhe point pe aao na
aaankh me aankhein daal ke keh do
khwaabon mein tehlaayo na
zara short mein
batlao na
seedhe point pe
aao na
seedhe point pe aao na. . .

la la laa laa
la la lal laa laa
la la laa laa
la la lal laa laa

alag ehsaas hota hai. . .
tumhaare paas hone ka
sarakti sarsarahat ki nadi mein reshmi lamhe
bheegone ka

o ho ho
zara sa mod kar gardan
jab apni hi adaa pe naaz karti ko
achha lagta hai

oo oo oo
lafzon se behlaao na
jhoothi moothi behkaao na
haathon ko haathon mein le ke
wo teen shabd tapkaao na
zara short mein
batlaao na
seedhe point pe
aao na
haan seedhe point pe aao na. . .

wo tere dhyaan ki khushboo
main sar tak odh leta hoon
bhatakti saans ko
teri gali mein gungunaane
chhod deta hoon

ho ho ho
tum apni khidkiyon ko khol kar
jab bhi naye aaghaaz karti ho
achha lagta hai

oo oo oo
gali gali gali gali gali
gali bhatkaao na
ghadi ghadi uljhaao na
senti ho
main jaan gai hoon
action bhi dikhlaao na
zara short mein
batlaao na
seedhe point pe
aao na
o seedhe point pe aao na. . .

achhaa. . .

o seedhe
o seedhe
o seedhe point pe
aao na. . .

la la laa laa
la la lal laa laa

झटक कर ज़ुल्फ़ ज तुम तौलिये से
बारिशें आज़ाद करती हो
अच्छा लगता है
हिला कर होंठ जब भी
हौले हौले गुफतगु को साज़ करती हो
अच्छा लगता है

ओ ओ ओ
खुशबू से बहलाओ ना
सीधे पौइंट पे आवो ना
आँख में आंखे डाल के कह दो
ख़्वाबो में टहलाओ ना
ज़रा शौर्ट में
बतलाओ ना
सीधे पौइंट पे
आवो ना
सीधे पौइंट पे आवो ना॰ ॰ ॰

ल ल ला ला

अलग एहसास होता है॰ ॰ ॰
तुम्हारे पास होने का
सरकती सरसराहट की नदी में रेशमी लम्हे
भिगोने का
ओ हो हो
ज़रा सा मोड़ कर गर्दन
जब अपनी ही अदा पे नाज़ करती हो
अच्छा लगता है

ओ ओ ओ
लफ्जों से बहलाओ ना
झूठी मूठी बहकाओ ना
हाथों को हाथ में ले के
वो तीन शब्द टपकाओ ना
ज़रा शौर्ट में
बतलाओ ना
सीधे पौइंट पे
आवो ना
सीधे पौइंट पे आवो ना॰ ॰ ॰

वो तेरे ध्यान की खुशबू
मैं सर तक ओढ़ लेता हूँ
भटकती सांस को
तेरी गली में गुनगुनाने छोड़ देता हूँ
हो हो हो
तुम अपनी खिड़कीयों को खोल कर
जब भी नए आग़ाज़ करती हो
अच्छा लगता है

ओ ओ ओ
गली गली गली गली गली

घड़ी घड़ी उलझाओ ना
सेंटी हो
मैं जान गई हूँ
एक्शन भी दिखलाओ ना
ज़रा शौर्ट में

na tu zameen ke liye hai na aasmaan ke liye
tera wajood hai sirf dastaan ke liye
 

palat ke su-e-chaman dekhne se kya hogaa
wo shaakh hi na rahi jo thhi aashiyaan ke liye

garaz paarast jahaan mein wafaa talaash na kar
ye shai bani hai kisi dusre jahan ke liye

Thus wrote Sahir Ludhianvi for the film ‘Daastaan’ (1972). Here he takes a cue from Allama Iqbal who said ….

na tu zameen ke liye hai na aasmaan ke liye
jahaan hai tere liye tu nahin jahaan ke liye

Ever the cynic….

Whereas Iqbal was always motivational, Sahir had an inverted view of things.  Maybe this solitude and despair was because of ‘Pyasaa” or vice versa.  Take the instance of “Wo Sub’ha Kabhi To Aayegi“ in the film ‘Phir Subah hogi’ (1958). These verses are said to have inspired his contemporary Jaan Nisaar Akhtar to write the song “Gham Ki Andheri Raat Mein” in ‘Susheela’ (1966), with the lines,

gham ki andheri raat mein dil ko na beqaraar kar
sub’ha zaroor aayegi, sub’ha ka intezaar kar

Just last week, I was thinking about the Hindi poem I had written in 2016. It was published in my office magazine. This poem has some heavy references of Sahir’s songs.  And that I should write a post about Sahir Ludhianvi on his anniversary. But for some reason I had the impression that his death anniversary falls in June or July. I thought I will look up on the blog for the birth anniversary and if it is anytime soon I will write a post.

As it happened my office computer was out of order last week and it returned to work only on Friday and there is no lap-top currently in my use at home, I missed the opportunity to write this article on time. It was Raja ji’s article which alerted me to the fact of Sahir Ludhianvi’s death anniversary on 25th October.

Before I get to the song in hand, let’s take a look at my poem.  This is rather long and I am told it lacks something.  But this is the finished product:

कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ?

सुना मैंने के कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती
सोचा के अपनी सी कुछ कोशिश मैं भी कर देखूं
कोशिश एक जद्द-ओ-जहद हालात को बेहतर करने की
कोशिश जो हर एक करे खुद को बेहतर इंसान बनाने की
कोशिश वो जो अपने परिवार की, सम्मान की रक्षा की
कोशिश के ऐसे जीऐं अपना स्तर उँचा हो नजर में खुदा की
कोशिश वो जो हो इज्जत से जीने की और इज्जतदार मरने की
फिर कहें
कि कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

फिर कहा किसी ने कि मरने की बात क्यू करें
मौत में कैसी इज्जत कैसी आबरू
क्यूं जब मर कर बाबुल से नजरें मिलाना है
तो जीना और मरना ऐसे रहे के अपना सर उँचा हो
ये ना हो कि बहू और बेटी को बाजार में खड़ा करे
और कहें कि
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

शायद ये साहिर नें 1957 में लिखा हो के
“संसार की हरेक बेशर्मी
गुरबत की गोद में पलती है”
सोचने लगी के क्या ये आज भी सच है
कोई सोचे या नहीं, बात काबिले गौर है
क्यूं की
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

और कहा साहिर ने के
“अवतार पयंबर जनती है,
फिर भी शैतान की बेटी है”
मुझे लगा जैसे आज मैं ही बैठी हूं
किसी टेलीविजन के ‘टॉक शो’ पर
और दुहार लगाई हूं “फ्रीडम ऑफ एक्सप्रेशन” की
वहां तक,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

आज का दौर हम सब ‘अय्याश’!
माडर्न और सैवी होने का हमें फक्र है

‘अय्याश’ इतना ‘ओल्ड फैशन्ड’ शब्द है,
की ‘हम अय्याश’ सुन कर सब चौंके,
अय्याश वो है जो ऐश में डूबा हुआ है
जिंदगी के मजे लेने में, जानों और पहचानों
“औरत ने जन्म दिया मर्दों को, मर्दों ने उसे बाजार दिया”
और तो
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

मेरी बहनों और बेटियों, अपनी इज्जत अपने हाथ
जब खुद अपनी इज्जत करना सीख जाओ
के औरों को तुम्हारी इस्मत पर नजर डालते शरम आये
संघर्ष का सब से बड़ा मैदान यहीं है के
कोख में अपनी बेटी का कत्ल ना होने देना हरगिज
और ना खुद को शैतान की बेटी बनने दो,
बात बहुत बड़ी मेरी तुच्छ कलम कह गयी
सच है,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

ओ बाबुल प्यारे, मुझे नाज से लाड से पालने वाले
कल तू मुझे संजोता, संवारता था और ससुराल भेजता
कल मैं तेरी आँखों की चमक और पगड़ी का फक्र थी
आज ये हाल है, कि हम अपनी बेटियों को परदेसी कर देते हैं
ताकि वो अपनी पोजिशन बनाये दुनियाँ में
जाओ,
के कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

नतीजा ये की आज दुनियाँ की कोई गैर-जरूरी चीज नहीं
जिसे बेचने में मेरा इस्तेमाल नहीं होता
आज मैं हर अखबार में हर फिल्मी पोस्टर में
हर पल हर वक्त बेची और खरीदी जाती हूं
मजे की बात तो ये हुई के मुझे एहसास तक नहीं
की मैं हर लम्हे कितनी “निर्भय” हो गई इस बाजार में
पता है, कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती
अगर ये मेरी और तुम्हारी हार नहीं है
तो कोई मुझे बताये कि ये क्या है?

ये कैसी कोशिश है
कि हर तरह से मेरी हार होती है ।

Sounds rather like a long story.  But the story is original and sort of a parody of the original ‘Koshish Karnewaalon Ki Kabhi Haar Nahin Hoti” by Harivansh Rai Bachchan.

Now moving to the song in hand, from the film ‘Begum Jaan’ (2017).  This is an adaptation of the original song in “Phir Subah Hogi”(1958) written by Sahir Ludhianvi.   Only a word in the mukhda is changed and the whole song in re-rendered by Arjit Singh and Shreya Ghoshal. Credit for the lyrics and composition is given to Sahir Ludhianvi and Khayyam.
(As per myswar.com  http://myswar.co/song_details/begum-jaan-2017-woh-subah-hami-se-aayegi-7 )

A big fan of Arjit Singh I am not and this particular rendition has not endeared him to me.  I believe singing has to be of words and uttering words in a loose manner somehow dilutes the impact.  I don’t know if the singing here was required this way due to the situation, as I haven’t seen the movie.   The background music is a haunting fall back on “Tadap Tadap Ke Iss Dil Se” (‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’, 1999). While listening to this and the original by Khaiyyam I was reminded of “Dekh Lo Aaj Hum Ko Ji Bhar Ke” (‘Baazaar’, 1982) as well as “Najariyaa Ki Maari” (“Pakeezah”, 1971).

This is a tribute to the poet of such inimitable songs such as:

Tum Mujhe Bhool Bhi Jaao To Ye Haqq Hai Tum Ko

Tum Agar Mujh Ko Na Chaaho To Koi Baat Nahi

Chalo Ek Baar Phir Se Ajnabi Ban Jaayen Ham Donon

Jaane Wo Kaise Log Thhe Jin Ke Pyar Ko Pyar Mila

Mann Re Tu Kaahe Na Dheer Dhare

And many more such songs.

Chorus

Lyrics

in kaali sadiyon ke sar se
jab raat ka aanchal dhhalkega aa
aaaa aaaaa aaaaaaaaa
jab dukh ke baadal pighlenge
jab sukh ka saagar chhalkega aa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
jab ambar jhhoom ke naachega
jab dharti naghme gaayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi

jis sub’ha ki khaatir jug jug se
ham sab mar mar ke jeete hain

aaa aaa aaa
jis subah ki amrit ki dhun mein
ham zehar ke pyaale peete hain
in bhooki pyaasi roohon per
ek din to karam farmaayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi

maana ke abhi tere mere
armaanon ki qeemat kuch bhi nahin

hmm hmm hmm
mitti ka bhi hai kuchh mol magar
insaanon ki qeemat kuchh bhi nahin
aa aa aa
insaanon ki izzat jab jhoothhe
sikko mein na toli jaayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi

इन काली सदियों के सर से
जब रात का आँचल ढलकेगा
आssss आssss आssssssss 
जब दुख के बादल पिघलेंगे
जब सुख का सागर छलकेगा
आss आss आss आss
जब अम्बर झूम के नाचेगा
जब धरती नग़मे गाएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी

जिस सुबहा की खातिर जुग जुग से
हम सब मर मर के जीते हैं
आss आss आss
जिस सुबहा के अमृत की धुन में
हम ज़हर के प्याले पीते हैं
इन भूखी प्यासी रूहों पर
एक दिन तो करम फरमाएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी

माना के अभी तेरे मेरे
अरमानों की क़ीमत कुछ भी नहीं
हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम
मिट्टी का भी है कुछ मोल मगर
इन्सानों की क़ीमत कुछ भी नहीं
आs आs आs
इन्सानों की इज्ज़त जब झूठे
सिक्कों में ना तोली जाएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 10
———————————————————————

I have just finished noting down lyrics of the song I have chosen – it has taken me one hour at least. I have listened to the song close to 4-5 times. I had to listen to some parts again and again trying to figure out what the singer was saying, revise my lyrics and note down which portions were sung by the male or female singer and which was sung by them both. I do this only once in a while, not being the owner of the blog but an occasional participant. It made me appreciate more and more the amount of dedication the usual writers put in. To combine all this with a write up to explain the song, add anecdotes related to the song and sometimes, stories that led to the song is all hard work, believe me. In this age and time of quick fixes, short cuts, bullet points and shortened attention spans it is difficult to even understand this kind of dedication.

Hats off to the owners of the blog (Atul ji and Sudhir ji) and a team of dedicated Atulties who fuel this blog with their enthusiasm. There are many Atulites who are intensely interested in the goings on related to the blog. I find they are all lovely people who share a deep love of music. Their camaraderie is commendable, not only do they discuss the events on the blog, but also try their best to meet up often. I have attended one such meeting and have been awed by the depth of knowledge they have of music and the various ways in which they share their knowledge.

I have chosen a song from a relatively new movie, ‘Yahan’ from 2005. It is the directorial debut of Shoojit Sircar who garnered fame for the movie that came after this, ‘Vicky Donor’ (2012) and ‘Piku’ (2015). This movie, as far as I remember, did not make any waves. I happened to see the movie in a cinema hall and was struck by it. Minissha Lamba impressed me and Jimmy Shergill is always a pleasure to watch. The story is about a Kashmiri girl, Ada, who falls in love with an army captain, Aman (Jimmy Shergill). They face many difficulties after they fall in love. Ada risks being ostracized, even killed, for loving an army officer, and that too, not of the same religion. Similarly, Aman is also labelled as a traitor for dealing with Ada’s brother who is a terrorist. The denouement is over simplistic. It is hard to imagine something as complex as Kashmir problem being solved (even in part) by a few acts of an army captain. The charm of the movie lay in the sweet character of the two protagonists. Aman is an upright man who takes full responsibility for the woman he loves. Ada hopes to find peace and love in Aman after dealing with the constant strife in her life.

Listening closely to this song while noting the lyrics, I was struck by the beautiful words penned by Gulzar, clothed most wonderfully by the lovely music composed by Shantanu Moitra. Shreya Ghoshal sings it beautifully, there are times when her voice drops to a whisper and rises again. There are times when the music fades and lets the singer’s voice do its magic. When Shreya sings “Jhelum Mein Beh Lenge”, it feesl like I am floating in Jhelum. The song drips with love and longing. It is hard for a song to be so beautiful unless all three key elements of it, music, lyrics and singing is at its best. In this song you can hear them at their best.

Enjoy the lovely song and send up thanks to our great Atulji for allowing us a platform to enjoy and share music like this and congratulations to all the creators of the blog and the readers.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 12
———————————————————————-

Atul ji has become a legend now 🙂 . Anybody disagrees? I dont think so. Who else has achieved what he has achieved – a mammoth task of collecting information about 10,000 songs and then writing/sharing the same with like-minded enthusiasts. A monumental work, unselfish to the core. What sacrifices he must have made, how much time he would have spent, what passion he must be having to carry on blogging relentlessly for almost 9 years!! You would get an idea of it when you go through one of his write-ups for the song “Kitne Bhi Tu Kar Le Sitam“. Forget about miserly people running such a blog, it is not a possibility at all. Even a person earning good amount of money would hesitate to do it. You will understand my statement in its full extent only if you read the above-mentioned write-up.
