ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 6
———————————————————————

Hullo to all in Atuldom

A special occasion calls for a special post – this was a point to be kept in mind when writing a post to mark 10 years of our pet-blog. It should not sound like any of the posts that I had written for the blog’s anniversary in the last few years- another thing to take care of.

Keeping these two main points in mind I have been ruminating about what to write for the last 20- 25 days. Added to this we get a mail from our Sudhir ji requesting the post to reach him well in advance so that posting on the blog can happen in a planned way and build-up the fervour to D-Day. And here I am on day 3653-3646 still writing.

What to write about and which song / movie to select was an issue which our Bharatbhai helped me resolve. I was glad to have been able to visit him on my recent trip to Mumbai. Sorry that it was not a four-cornered meet as Arunkumar ji was not in town and I was unable to contact Sadanand ji. I was dazed by Bharat Bhai’s passion for music irrespective of the genre though he has a soft-corner for classical, bhajans and lyrical stuff in addition to Lata Mangeshkar. And for the fifth or sixth time in my life I was awed by someone. It happened for the first time in 2014 when I visited Sudhir ji and saw his collection of music and books and music players. The feeling is repeated every time I have visited Arunkumar ji, Gajendra ji and Raja ji. Each of them has something in their dens that is eye-popping, one of the contributing factors to why I like visiting them. And I must thank Atul ji for starting the blog and bringing me in the same circle as these people.

So, as I said earlier Bharat Bhai has sowed the seed for this post and it might get to be a rather longish post if compared to all that I have ever written, so fellow-atulites please bear it and indulge me. 😊

I think I will say “once upon a time, not-so-long-ago” Atul ji started a blog by the name Atulsongaday on 19th July 2008. In that very same month, far, far away in another part of the country, a family shifted into a new city, new phase of life and a somewhat changed daily routine. Having moved into a new home the first 10-15 days just ran by in unpacking and setting up the house. In addition to helping the kids (who are now working adults) adjust to the lifestyle of the new city which is so spread out that in-spite of having more number of buses in its public transport fleet caters to fewer areas or people and make lesser number of trips as compared to our previous city – Mumbai. Then add to it the fact that suddenly the daughter and son were in different educational institutes, so different timings and work schedules fell in place. Oh, there was another thing to adjust to – the man of the house had his workplace within walking distance so after about 15 years I had the pleasure of company during lunchtimes.

When we were Mumbaikars we had developed the hobby of walking to the nearest cinema house whenever we felt like seeing a movie. This too changed in our new city – Bangalore (now the city is calling itself Bengaluru, even that has changed 😉). We found that the nearest cinema house was a good 5 kms away and was a multiplex; something we had not liked when in Mumbai as we felt that these places had hiked-up ticket charges (now multiplexes have become common and part of the movie-experience).

In the same month – July 2008 – Bollywood had about seven big releases meaning movies where a big banner, producer, director, or star – actors and actresses were involved. Namely ‘Jaane Tu. . . Ya Jaane Na’ starring newcomers Genelia D’Souza and Imran Khan; ‘Love Story 2050” with Priyanka Chopra in the lead; ‘Mehbooba’ with Ajay Devgan, Sanjay Dutt and Manisha Koirala (the last released movie with songs penned by Anand Bakshi); ‘Kismat Konnection’ with Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan; Ram Gopal Verma’s ‘Contract’ (read about this movie as I was writing this); ‘Mission Istanbul’ starring Vivek Oberoi, Zayed Khan, Suneil Shetty etc. and ‘Money Hai Toh Honey Hai’ starring Govinda, Manoj Bajpai etc.

Of these the only movie that has stayed in my memory is ‘Jaane Tu. . . Ya Jaane Na’. Probably as this was the first movie which my kids went to see all by themselves in Bangalore, all cinema-going before that used to be family-affairs as I have said earlier. Another factor for it to remain in memory is the title which came from the popular song of the 70s. Then the music by AR Rehman was a standout which appealed to the young and the young-at-heart and the lyrics by Abbas Tyrewala were meaningful too. Along with a host of young actors the movie also had some new playback singers who have since gone on to sing many popular numbers and gained popularity themselves.

So, coming back to what I was telling, this movie released in the first week of July, and it was still there in the movie halls when my children decided to see it after we had finished settling in. It might have been 19th July since it was a Saturday (just checked on google) which used to be a half-working day at their colleges and I used to allow them to go for the evening show. (Is that why the blog began on 19th, being a Saturday?) So now I hope I have established the reason I chose this movie to debut here on the blog as compared to ‘Kismat Konnection’ or ‘Contract’ (both of which had released on 18th July 2008.)

“Jaane Tu … ya jaane na” was produced by Aamir Khan and Mansoor Khan and was written and directed by Abbas Tyrewala. The cast included Ratna Pathak Shah and Naseeruddin Shah ( appearing in a photo hanging on the wall, dressed in gallant Rathore-clan outfit), Anuradha Patel, Jayant Kripalani and Prateik Babbar with a horde of young actors who formed the group of friends of Genelia and Imran Khan. Paresh Rawal, Sohail Khan and Arbaaz Khan had guest appearances. The story is about two friends who don’t realise that they love each other but the enitre world around them is aware that they are meant for each other. The movie is about how the realization dawns on the two. Oh, the movie opens with the youngsters singing (rather tunelessly) the famous song “Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Naata Koi” which just goes to show that youngsters do like the (not-so-old) song. 😊

So, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the blog, our shifting to Bengaluru and the movie itself here is the best party song that I can think of sung by Tanvi, Satish Subramaniam, Mohd Aslam, Darshana, Blaaze, Benny Dayal, Anupama Deshpande (only recognisable name).

Happy Birthday ASAD. Let us have many more such anniversaries.

 

Song – Pappu Can’t Dance Saala (Jaane Tu. . . Ya Jaane Na) (2008) Singer – Tanvi, Satish Subramaniam, Mohd Aslam, Darshana, Blaaze, Benny Dayal, Anupama Deshpande, Lyrics – Abbas Tyrewala, MD – AR Rahman

Blog Day : 3647 Post No. : 14478

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 2
———————————————————————

On the occasion of completing 10 years of the blog on July 19, 2018, I heartily congratulate Atul ji and his musical bandwagon for attaining a very important milestone.

The blog started with the intent of posting at least one song a day. At the time of joining the blog in July 2011, I felt as to how Atul ji could make a commitment of posting one song a day. With family responsibilities, a transferable job with chances of getting posted at not-so-internet-friendly places, the target of one song a day was not so easy as it looks. To my pleasant surprise, the target of posting one song a day (actually more) on the blog has been, more or less, adhered to with a punctuality of more than 98 per cent. My assessment is that there may be, on average, not more than 10 days in a year when songs were not posted on the blog. But the team of regular (and irregular) contributors to the blog have more than compensated by an average posting of nearly 4 songs per day during the last 10 years.

I got to know from the special posts written by Atul ji on the occasions of the celebrations of blog’s anniversaries and milestones that during the initial period of the blog, the response was not as per his expectation. At that time, as I understand from his write-ups, Raja ji’s encouraging words inspired him not to lose heart and to do his karma. Later on, as I have witnessed, the visitors to the Blog increased manifold. Presently, the number of visitors to the Blog have crossed well over 10.5 million (more than one crore). Coupled with the total number of films and songs covered, this blog is the primus inter blog (first among the blogs) covering Hindi films and non-film songs.

I consider myself very fortunate to be associated with the musical journey of the blog for the last 7 years. Based on my experience, I would say that one of the greatest contributions of the blog has been the creation of interest in Hindi film songs of pre-golden era period. When I joined the blog in July 2011, I found it interesting, amongst others, Arun ji’s well-documented informative posts about the Hindi films and their artists, especially of the pre-golden era period. I do not think that information on many of the films and artists covered in such articles is available in any other blogs on Hindi films.

On the occasion of a decade of this musical Blog, I have chosen one of my favourite songs from Hindi films of post-2000 period. This song has been my inspirational song during my Himalayan treks. The song is from the film ‘Swades’ (2004). I am reproducing the full mukhda of the song to bring out the relevance of these inspirational lines in the context of the musical journey of the blog:

yunhi chala chal raahi
yunhi chala chal raahi
kitni haseen hai ye duniya
bhool saare jhamele
dekh phoolon ke mele
badi rangeen hai ye duniya

Apparently this song is also a ‘journey song’. The hero, Shahrukh Khan is on a journey in a self-driven caravan (camping vehicle) to locate his Nanny in one of the remote villages in India. On the way, he is joined by a faqeer (Makarand Deshpande) to help him find the correct direction to his destination (he has been intentionally misguided in the earlier part of the film 🙂 ). What starts as a song being heard from the radio on vehicle’s dash board, it becomes a voice over to Shahrukh Khan (playback by Udit Narayan) and Makarand Deshpande (playback by Kailash Kher). Hariharan’s voice is used at the start of the song for lines heard from the dash board, and a line in-between the song and towards the end. The song is written by Javed Akhtar which is set to music by AR Rahman. In an interview to ‘The Hindu’ which appeared in its December 25, 2010 issue, AR Rahman had revealed that the tune of this song was originally composed for one of the songs of ‘Lagaan’ (2001) but it was not used.

As stated earlier, some parts of the lyrics of the song are relevant to the journey of our musical caravan ‘driven’ by Atul ji in which many like-minded persons are fellow-travellers. Just like the faqeer in the film shows the direction of the destination to Shahrukh Khan in the picturisation of the song, Sudhir ji has been performing more or less, the same role in our musical caravan apart from providing other value additions. Other fellow travellers in our musical caravan have been contributing in their own ways to facilitate the blog with its intent.

Any journey through any form of conveyance has a final destination. But our musical caravan is a journey sans destination, although during the journey, there are intermediate destinations (milestones). So, for our musical caravan, journey becomes more important than the destination.

I have personally interacted with Atul ji only once and may be a couple of times through e-mails. But with my 7 years of association with blog, I feel that I know him through blog more than my interactions with him. Two lines of Allama Iqbal from his nazm, ‘Saaqi Nama’ perhaps sum up my impression about Atul ji in the context of his musical journey through the Blog:

bahut usne dekhe hain past o buland
safar usko manzil se badh kar pasand

He has seen many low and high (of this blog’s journey)
But for him, the (musical) journey is far preferable than any destination

I wish Atul ji many more happy and enchanting years of the musical journey of this blog.

Lyrics

tu jo kahe
taare bhi laa doon main
tere liye aankhen bichha doon main
main to dil de doon
arre main jaan de doon
aji waah waah waah waah
do do hain deewaane
mere parwaane
mushqil mein jaan meri phans gayi jee

haay haay haay haay haay haay haay
do do hain deewaane
mere parwaane
mushqil mein jaan meri phans gayi jee

kahaan jaayen gori
bholi nazar tori
dil mein hamaare to bas gayi ji

lattu hai tum pe jaise bhi chaaho ghumaaya karo
popat hoon tera
aise bhi mujhko bulaaya karo
aji dekha hai
kabhi ?? bhi
aisi soorat se ulfat main kya karoon baaba
do do hain deewaane
mere parwaane
mushqil mein jaan meri phans gayi jee

hoy
kahaan jaayen gori
bholi nazar tori
dil mein hamaare to bas gayi jee

dekha hai tum ko jab se hamen chaand pheeka lage
dil to wohi hai jispe tera teer teekha lage
aji maske se main na fisloongi
ye to marji hai dil ki main kya karoon baba
do do hain deewaane
mere parwaane
muskil mein jaan meri fas gayi ji

Here is the sixth and final song from “Bandhe Haath”(1973) to appear in the blog. The song is a stage dance performance song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

Picturisation shos that it is a “tribal” dance song. A “tribal” dance song in Hindi consists of skimpily dressed dancers, wearing strange outfits / masks etc that are vaguely of African or Red Indian origin.

The main female dancer is a skimpily clad Mumtaz who makes sure that the movie makers save money hiring a Helen or Padma Khanna for this dance sequence. She alongwith other similarly dressed females perform this dance in the presence of a housefull auditorium.

Whenever such performances take place in a Hindi movie, one can be rest assured that baddies would be swarming the place. This song is no exception. We find a galaxy of baddies, led by Ajit, Madan Puri etc marking their attendance. They are looking for Amitabh Bachchan, who like the baddies would invariably find himself in the vicinity of such a dance performance.

SAmitab Bachchan may be hiding in the outfit of a Sheikh, but he cannot escape from Ajit’s eagle eyes, who then passes on the intelligence to his minions as well as a policeman (Ram Mohan ?). What is the standard way in which our Hindi movie heroes try to hide from the baddies ? The join the dance performance. How an uninvited dancer can join in the performance and how the back stage organisers allow this to happen is something that we will never know. And how the hero is aware of the lyrics as well as the corrrect dance steps for the dance is also something that is a mystery to all. This supposedly disguised hero then lip syncs and dances loudly and quite prominently which is their standard attempt to hide from the baddies. :).

That is not all, we find another disguised dancer (O P Ralhan ?) joining in, no doubt easily dodging the back stage managers to the performance, and he too starts to sing and dance loudly. In his part of the song and dance, he “discreetly” passes on the information that baddies are in hot pursuit of him.

It all sounds quite silly really, but we are so used to such dance performances that we do not bat out eyelids. 🙂

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the people who are visible in the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Bandhe Haath”(1973) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Today is the first birth date, after the death of a personality who passed away at the age of 79 in December 2017. He retired from in front of the camera in 1999 after nearly 58 years of active Bollywood life. Amitabh Bachchan held him in high esteem and was always grateful to him for co-starring in ‘Deewar’ (1975) in a kind of second-hero role inspite of being much more senior and popular actor at the time when that film was being made.

Yes, today Shashi Kapoor would have turned 80. It is really saddening to remember him today. Infact, this last six to twelve months have been bad to fans of Bollywood; having lost personalities/ celebrities like Om Puri, Vinod Khanna, Sridevi, Shashi Kapoor etc. expectedly and unexpectedly. Vinod Khanna and Shashi Kapoor were ill for sometime but Om Puri’s and Sridevi’s deaths were shocking. But we never know what god has in store for us.

But let us snap out of this mood and enjoy the song with this post. It is from the 1983 film ‘Bandhan Kachchey Dhaagon Ka’. It is a song in the voice of Usha Uthup, Asha Bhonsle and Suresh Wadkar. It has music by Hemant Bhonsle, and lyrics by Anjaan. The movie was produced by KC Sharma and written and directed by Anil Sharma. The movie explored the relation between a happily married couple when faced with a new unexpected entrant in their life. Actually the husband is unaware that he has a son from a previous girlfriend (I don’t remember exactly if it is a previous girlfriend or an encounter with a particularly beautiful business associate). The child’s mother, Zeenat Aman, is bringing up the child as a single parent when she discovers she is terminally ill. So she sends the child across to its father without telling the child that “this is your father”. But the situation, much like in ‘Masoom’ (also in 1983) is enough to topple the apple cart of the family which takes the couple up to the threshold of divorce.

This movie came when Shashi Kapoor was looking younger than his age. When he was living a much-loved life. It never showed in his acting or his countenance that he was worried about his sick wife Jennifer. But when she died of cancer Shashi Kapoor was so heart broken that he suddenly aged, gained weight for a movie-role and then didn’t bother to loose it. Suddenly he was seen in fatherly and grand-fatherly roles when he was only  in his 40s and then took complete retirement from movies in 1999 at the age of 60. And then he was seen regularly at Mumbai’s Prithvi Theatre which he had set up with his wife. The last Bollywood movie he was seen in was ‘Akela’.

Remembering him today with this song in which he seen enjoying himself with Kalpana Iyer, Zeenat Aman and a group of rain dance revellers. And please note he has different dancing style in this song. 🙂

“O Tera Kya Kehnaa”(1959) was produced by N H Baria and A Khaliq and directed by K Parvez for Y T U Baria Films, Bombay.

This “social” movie had Mehmood, Chitra, Kammo, Helen, Sheikh, Bhagwan, Renu Makad, Shaam Kumar, Babu Raje, Manohar Kamat, Munshi Munaqqa, Kathana, Haneef, Fazlu, Bagla, Maqbool, Kallan etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it that were penned by five lyricists and sung by eight singers !

Four of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth song from “O Tera Kya Kehnaa”(1959) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and Suman Kalyanpur. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji.

The song has a “western” feel about it and the three singers rarely got to sing songs of this genre. But they have hung on (and sung on) gamely.

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

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

“Maan Gaye Ustaad”(1981) was a Shibu Mitra directed movie.

Chandan Singh (Pran) is a farmer who lives in a village called Ramgarh along with his wife, Malti (Sonia Sahni), and two children, Munna and Munni. One day Malti gets molested by three city goons, Jaikishan (Ajit), Rajan, and Banoo (Rajan Haksar). Chandan intervenes, but is attacked, and Malti is shot dead. The children get separated, while Munna is adopted by a Muslim male named Abba (Om Prakash) and is re-named Shera, Munni is adopted by a Hindu family and re-named Geeta.

Years later the three estranged family members are fated to meet again – this time Geeta is a con-woman, who has a con-man boyfriend, Kishan (Shashi Kapoor), who is on the lookout for the man who killed his photographer brother (Chandrasekhar), and believes that Chandan is the killer; while Chandan, who is now known as Chandan Dada, a hoodlum, has been arrested for killing a man named Rajan; while Shera, a hit-man and hoodlum himself, has feigned his arrest, after accepting a contract from none other than Jaikishan – to kill Chandan!!

The movie then goes through the normal way of first bringing the family together with the help of the song that the father had taught his children before calamity struck the family and they got separated.

The movie was almost like a show case for Pran. He had a song filmed on him and that song appeared three times in the movie. He got to take revenge from the villains, had a beautiful wife in Sonia Sahni, and he also got a qawwali which was a competition between him and Amjad Khan.

But this is not the only movie where he had songs to emote too. We have loved him with Ashok Kumar in so many songs, and I am sure everyone will agree that the most entertaining one was in “Victoria No. 203” – “do bechare bina sahaare dekho pooch pooch kar hare”.

But one cannot forget him with Kishore Kumar either- “Aake seedhi dil pe katariya oh sawariya” (Half Ticket) or Amitabh Bachchan – “Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi”.

And we should not forget that Pran’s innings as a “good” character artist began with his “malang chacha” mouthing “kasme vaade pyaar wafa sab baatein hai” “in Upkaar”.

He began his filmi career in pre-independence era with Yamla Jat, Khajanchi, Chaudhary etc in Lahore in Punjabi. His Hindi film run began with “Khandaan” (1942. Here I feel like mentioning the other “Khandan” (1965) where he played a villain to make the life of the hero Sunil Dutt miserable.

His career in Bombay (Mumbai of today) started with “Ziddi” which was also a break for DevAnand and by 1950 Pran was a premier villain in Bollywood. He was the most sought-after villain opposite Dilip- Raj- Dev through the 50s and 60s. We have seen him being mean to every other hero of that period Dharmendra, Rajendra Kumar, Manoj Kumar, and any other hero we can think of (I am not going into the Roster of the heroes of the sixties here).

During this period, he had a brief role in Manoj Kumar’s “Shaheed” which was not a negative character.

But post “Upkaar” he had a second image change and we could see him as a good grandfather “Parichay”, friend “Zanjeer” “Guddi” “Beimaan” etc alongwith being the badman.

He had a style all his own be it in getting into various getups that went with the character he played or the blowing of smoke rings and holding the cigar or cigarette in a different way I each movie. There are many present-day character actors- Gulshan Grover for example- who swear on Pransaab being their role model much the same way as heroes copy Dilip- Raj- Dev. 🙂

He would have been celebrating his 98th birthday today (12 February 2018). I just could not get this date go by without we posting a song filmed on Pransaab. For today’s song Mohd. Rafi has given his voice alongwith Dilraj Kaur and Chandrani Mukherjee. This song appears about three times in the movie- once in happy times when Chandan Singh is the family man and farmer, once when he is so “good” a prisoner that the jailor Ashok Kumar trusts him to let him play around the jail with his grandson. And finally, at the climax of the movie when his (now grownup) children are tied up by the villain (I am unable to locate that video).

Today also happens to be the birthday of a person who became a friend thanks to this blog. We know him as Avinash Scrapwala. Here I would also like to wish him all the very best in life. Best wishes are also due to another Atulwaasi- Nitin Shah and his wife celebrate their Wedding Anniversary today. Here is wishing them long years of togetherness.

Blog Day : 3489 Post No. : 14017

Hullo Atuldom

Today (5 february 2018) is Monday, first day of a working week and the song with this post is asking for a weekend. I had fallen in love with it the minute I heard it about 2/3 years back in 2015. I had immediately noted its lyrics so that I could use it at the first opportunity.
This song is neither unique nor rare. It is from a movie where the young actor has co-starred with a senior actor whom he had probably addressed as uncle in the 1980s/90s. The junior actor was a bigger fan of the senior than the junior was of his own father’s.

Confused? Well let me clear the air. So, today’s song features Rishi Kapoor with Abhishek Bachchan. I have read a loooonggg time ago, in one of Amitabh Bachchan’s interviews, in a film magazine of the 80s; wherein Amitabh had said that his kids loved Rishi Kapoor movies more than his own as his movies had more of romance and feel good factors as opposed to Amitabh’s which had violence etc. Confusion cleared?
Ok it can be called unique in the sense after having acted and danced around with AB Sr. Rishi is here with AB Jr.

The movie was a very straight story of misunderstandings between father and son. How the son walks away from the family but returns on learning of a crisis in the family and how he reunites his parents and at the end “ALL IS WELL” — that was the name of the movie too. The movie was directed by Umesh Shukla the person who had made “OMG—OH My God!” in 2012. All is Well starred Asin and Supriya Pathak as the females in the life of RK and AB Jr. the movie has six songs with Himesh Reshammiya, Meet Brothers, Amaal Malik etc. as composers and assorted writers too. Today’s song is penned by Shabbir Ahmed and Amaal Malik is the composer. The playback is by Vishal Dadlani and the rap part is by Badshah.

Here I must confess that I have no clue about Badshah Amaal Malik, and very little knowledge about Meet Brothers. I only hope there are young followers to the blog who can throw light on these NEW NAMES for us. 🙂

Any guesses why I chose this song today— Abhishek Bachchan turns a year older today.

Wishing Abhishek Bachchan, a very Happy Birthday.


Song-Hafte mein chaar shaniwaar hone chaahiye (All is Well)(2015) Singers-Badshah, Armaan Malik, Vishaal Dadlaani, Lyrics-Shabbir Ahmad, MD-Amaal Malik

Lyrics

hafte mein chaar shanivaar hone chaahiye
hafte mein chaar shaniwaar hone chaahiye

shanivaar bole toh saturday
woh bhi chaar chaar

kabhi aisa bhi ho
sooraj chhuti pe ho
ghadi ke kaante
mutthi mein ho
in the lambi limo
full-on masti bhi ho
saath mein hot beauty bhi ho
arrey speaker ka volume hazaar hona chaahiye ae ae
hafte mein chaar shanivar hone chaahiye
chaar chaar char chaar
hafte mein char shanivar hone chahiye
four chaar
four chaar

maine kaha party karo,
kehna kyun nahi maante
jeene ke din hote hain,
bas chaar insaan ke
sharmaana aur ghabraana,
yeh dono cheezen chhod do
rules aur dance floor,
ye dono cheezen tod do
its yo boy badshaah

jab ye gaana bajegaa toh
automatically hi tu dance karega
kaan ke neeche do de doonga
jo kabhi faltu bakwaas karega
jisne party nahin karni
they can go to hell
?? boy is in the house
baby all is well

saal ke yaar gin
teen sau painsath din
52 hi shaniwaar hai
kar calendar ko flush
chhod de saare rush
din jawaani ke bas chaar hain
worldwide yehi prachar hona chaahiye ae ae ae
hafte mein chaar shanivaar hone chaahiye
hafte mein chaar shanivaar hone chaahiye

Blog Day : 3479 Post No. : 13976

I congratulate all our readers on the auspicious occasion of this 69th REPUBLIC DAY of our country (26 january 2018).

Seriously, how many of us really know the definition of a Republic ? As per the Oxford Dictionary, “A Republic is a sovereign country, which is organised with a form of Government in which the power resides with elected individuals, who exercise power according to the rule of the law “. In short, it is a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

After India achieved freedom in 1947, some films on Patriotic themes were made. ‘Andolan’ (1951) was one such film. Made by Harnam Motwane, under his banner Motwane Ltd, this film is labelled as a ‘historic’ film by HFGK. That may be because in this film the history of India’s independence struggle from 1885 to 1947 is shown with the documentaries and actual footage (with a basic film story, of course) from short films made by Films Division and some film companies like Krishna and Kohinoor films.

This was Kishore Kumar’s first film as a hero and his role was a serious one, that of a militant hero. Though in his later career, Kishore became famous and popular as a comedian – a reluctant one, though, he always yearned for serious roles in serious films. When he started producing his own films, he took the opportunity to make some serious films.

Today’s song is from film ‘Andolan’. It is not a film song actually, but our National Song, suitably woven into the film story. “Vande Maataram” could have been our National Anthem, but things were manoeuvred in such a way that it did not get that place of honour. Let us see a brief history of Vande Mataram through the years.

It was Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay who wrote the lyrics for the powerful “Vande Maataram”. It was Sanyasi Rebellion (1763-1800) that inspired Bankim to write the historic novel ‘Ananda Matth’. Actually, the lyrics of this song came much before the novel. He wrote the lyrics while he was riding in a train and was inspired by the scenic landscape, beautiful lakes and charm of nature in its expansive splendor. The poet in him got totally inspired and burst into penning down lyrics for this soul stirring poem. However, it took few more years for the poem to reach to the masses.

On April 14th 1906, at the Bengali Provincial Conference of Indian National Congress at Barisal, Bankim revealed this power-packed mantra to the masses. The pledge for undoing the then partition of Bengal was also taken at this conference. And “Vande Maatarm” became a weapon in the hands of patriotic revolutionaries of India which shook the foundation of British Raj. Many hard core patriots went to gallows while holding Bhagwath Geeta in one hand and the lines of “Vande Maataram” on their lips.

“Vande Maataram” even reached the shores of America in 1912 and the Gadar party was formed to fight against British Colonialism, with vows of patriotism singing the lines of this inspirational poem. Four Indian revolutionaries from Independence League in Japan were caught by British forces and were sentenced to death. All four went to gallows with “Vande Maataram” on their lips.

National Anthem of Azad Hind Fauj (Indian National Army – INA) led by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, was a soul-stirring adoration of the motherland India which inspired thousands of soldiers to lay down their lives for India’s independence. Netaji writes about “Vande Mataram” in his autobiography calling it as the National Anthem of India. In his writings, he says – “Vande Maataram” literally means “I salute you, O Mother”.

“Vande Maataram” inspired twenty four soldiers of Bristish Indian Army stationed in Tamilnadu in 1940’s. And British arrested all twenty four on charges of mutiny and were sentenced to death. In Madras (now Chennai) Jail all twenty four went to gallows once again with “Vande Maataram” on their lips.

The acceptance and usage of this poem was also fraught with controversies. The Muslim League opposed the acceptance of this poem on grounds of religious sentiments, as early as 1908. Taking a rigid and parochial view, based on a certain interpretations of the fundamental tenets of Islamic traditions, they claimed that their religion disallowed them to bow their head in worship and salute to any person or symbol other than Allah, the Almighty. By this logic, they said, a salute to even as revered a symbol as the Motherland, would be hurting their religious sentiments.

In 1922, Congress leaders with Nehru as a party leader decided to maim “Vande Maataram” by allowing only first two stanzas of this poem to be sung. Muslim League still persisted in its objection, and in 1938, Jinnah placed before Nehru his demand for completely abandoning this poem.
[Ed Note: There is ample evidence to also show that such divisive manipulations was the handiwork of the British. It was the British who wanted the ‘Jana Gana Mana. . .’ poem by Rabindranath Tagore, to take precedence over all other such similar candidates. They wanted to stress their superiority and control over the leaders and people of India, simply because the creation of Rabindranath Tagore was originally written in the honor of the British king. And that both the Muslim League and the Indian National Congress were simply toeing the British line.]

Nehru further went on to say that lyrics of “Vande Maataram” were not suitable for composing it into a melody. And no orchestra will be able to play such a song. But one patriot-musician Master Krishna Rao Phulambrikar from Pune proved Nehru wrong. He composed “Vande Maataram” in a very melodious tune. However, Nehru wanted to get okay from British Band (orchestra) experts. Master Krishna Rao Phulambrikar came to Bombay (now Mumbai) and played his composition to British Band experts and they approved it after playing smoothly in their orchestra. This proved for the first time that “Vande Maataram” could be composed melodiously.
[Author’s Note : I do not understand here why Nehru wanted an okay from British Band in the first place].

In spite of all these efforts, Congress leaders did not like the idea of making this poem as the National Anthem of India. Even before the official decision was taken by Constituent Assembly on this issue, “Jana Gana Mana” was played as National Anthem in the UN General Assembly in 1947. If congress (read – Nehru) would not have hastened there was a possibility that “Vande Maataram” would have been adopted as National Anthem of India by majority votes of assembly members.

But things took place behind the scenes. The question never came to Constituent Assembly. Instead of passing a resolution for adopting National Anthem by majority votes, the first President of India Dr. Rajendra Prasad was asked to announce on January 24th, 1950 saying that “Jana Gana Mana” will be the National Anthem of India and “Vande Maataram” will have equal status with it.

Of course, Vande Mataram does not need any official stamp of being a National Anthem from Government of India so long as it lives in the hearts of millions and millions of Indians all across the globe. (Adapted from an article by Dr N Kamath, with thanks).

As far as the story of film ‘Andolan’ is concerned, this is what its film booklet says-

In the year 1885, Charu Dutt, a worldly-wise patriot, journeys from his little village to attend the first session of the Indian National Congress, held in Bombay. Fired with patriotic zeal, he returns to his village and speaks to his friends and relatives of the new wave that is about to spread over India. To his son he explains the cultural and political past of India, from the dawn of her history upto the turbulence of 1857. The years roll on, and we come to the partition of Bengal. There is thunder in the air, and India’s inspiring song, “Vande Maataram”, is born. The struggle gathers strength. Mahatma Gandhi appears, and freedom comes closer. 1920. . . 1921. . . Simon Commission, Bardoli, Dandi, 1930. . . 1932. . . the battle rages and the drama heightens. Then, August 1942 and Quit India, and on to the final chapter in our freedom story, which unfolds in this film as the story of a single family, representing the nation of which they are the heart-beats.

According to a Review of this film, published in those days-

The true patriot that he was, Pannalal Ghosh gave stirring compositions and flute playback for the memorable film ‘Andolan’. This film starred Shivraj, Kishore Kumar, Manju, Pushpa, Sushma, Parsuram, and Tiwari and was directed by Phani Majumdar for Motwane Ltd.

The film, made at Bombay Talkies, was produced by the distributors of the Chicago Radio PA systems. Kishore Kumar plays the role of the militant hero of this quasi-documentary. It is a stridently nationalistic story of India’s freedom struggle, presented through the expressions of a Bengali family from 1885 (when the Indian National Congress was established) to 1947. It has the actual footage of India’s freedom struggle. Speeches and talks of our national leaders, Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and many others are included in the narrative of this film.

Important events incorporated into the plot were Mahatma Gandhi’s Satyagrah (1920), the Simon Commission (1928), Sardar Vallabh bhai Patel’s Bardoli Satyagrah (1928) and the 1942 Quit India agitation. Old documentary footage purchased from Kohinoor and Krishna Films, as well as a shot of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore singing Jana Gana Mana are included. The song “Vande Maataram” rendered by Parul Ghosh, Sudha, and Manna Dey is based on Raaga Miyan Malhar. “Prabhu Charanon Main Aaya Pujari” in Raaga ‘Shree’ and “Radha Ne Kiya”, both rendered by Parul Ghosh are appreciated by music lovers. “Subah Ki Pahili Kiran Tak Zindagi Mushkil Mein Hai” rendered by Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and others is a unique experimentation in Bhor music.

The film was directed by Phani Mujumdar (28-12-1911 to 16-5-1994), who was already a seasoned Director. He is the only Director who directed films in 9 languages (Hindi, Bangla, English, Malay, Chinese, Magadhi, Maithili, Aasamese and Punjabi). He started his career assisting PC Barua in Calcutta. Besides ‘Street Singer’ (1938) and ‘Kapaal Kundala’ (1939), he had directed a total of 29 films,which include several hit films like ‘Baadbaan’, ‘Doctor’, ‘Tamanna’, ‘Door Chalen’, ‘Faraar’, ‘Aarti’, ‘Kanyadan’, ‘Akashdeep’, ‘Oonche Log’ etc. Here is a short biosketch and an obitury on him, published in The Independent, Calcutta, on 22-6-1994, and is written by the famous film historian and author of ‘Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema’ – Ashish Rajadhyaksha.

PHANI MAJUMDAR was a pioneer of Indian cinema, working in the late 1930s with PC Barua, India’s equivalent of DW Griffith, in the famous New Theatres Studio of Calcutta. Here, between 1936 and 1939, new standards were set for Indian motion pictures in a series of reflective, lyrical films that brought cinema closer to life and literature.

Majumdar’s contribution was ‘Street Singer’ (1938), a melancholy love story, his debut and a classic of Indian cinema. Its male lead, Kundan Lal Saigal, sang his immortal song ‘Babul Mora’ here, on a charged symbolic landscape of boats adrift in the mist. The Famine of 1943 and Partition of India were events of the future yet much of the symbolism of Bengal, the redolent Tagorean motifs of life-giving rivers, the feudal elite recreating the 19th century in desolate mansions – all the stuff that Satyajit Ray later spoke of as ‘the past’ – was in place with Street Singer. It was watched, not just as a love story par excellence, but as an expression of themes of Indian identity and nationalism which would be relevant for India, and Majumdar, even beyond Independence.

Majumdar was born in Faridpur, in what is now Bangladesh, in 1911. From Calcutta he moved to Bombay in 1941, directing classic musicals which often promoted traditional ways of Indian life, with stars like Suraiya in ‘Tamanna’ (1942), Shanta Apte in ‘Mohabbat’ (1943), and the blind singer KC Dey.

Majumdar’s Andolan (1951), Indian cinema’s most elaborately constructed nationalist propaganda feature, was made to promote Nehru’s Congress Party and was the closest that India ever came, on film, to defining a popular culture of nationalism: a small family in Bengal experiences in microcosm the major political events in the country, from 1885 (when the Congress Party was established) to Independence.

Majumdar returned to India from working in Singapore in the 1960s, and proceeded to make films in Punjabi, and even in obscure languages like Magadhi (‘Bhaiya’, 1961) and Maithili (‘Kanyadaan’, 1965). His interest in themes of an intrinsically Indian nature was a driving force to the end of his career. He worked on the television phenomenon of the 1980s in India, the 78-part religious epic ‘The Ramayana’, and was working on a television series ‘Our India’ when he died. No doubt, had he lived, the ‘Our India’ series, on a state television network struggling to hold its own in competition with satellite, would have been the fitting finale to a career which started with ‘Street Singer’.

The film had a cast consisting of Kishore kumar, Shivraj, Manju, Parshuram, Tiwari, Krishnakant, Sachin Shankar, Pushpa, Gauri devi etc etc. The recording of the songs of this film were done in November 1949 to August 1950 itself. Actor Krishnakant aka K.K. who acted in this film, did the role of Rehmu (Rehman) – a 20 year old young man. By the end of the film, he becomes an 85 year old Rehmu Chacha. He has written about this film in his Gujarati autobiography, ‘Guzra hua zamana’, that he had to do the make up differently for every shot of his role – from young to old. His make up man was Dada Paranjape, who had worked in Prabhat and Rajkamal with V Shantaram. The shooting of the film was done in Bhopal and nearby areas. All the actors and crew had to stay in Military Barracks and had to report at 7 am for shootings. The season was winter and the cold of Bhopal was unbearable. Constant tea/coffee supply was arranged.

For lack of any big stars and actors, distributors were wary of taking the film. A grand premiere was arranged, attended by Dev Anand, Raj Kapoor, Meena kumari, Madhubala, Geeta Bali and others. However, the film did not do big business. Probably, the documentary type presentation was not impressive enough.

The film has 6 songs. Today’s song is the second song to be posted here. The first song was discussed few years ago. On this auspicious occasion of our Republic Day, let us listen to “Vande Maataram”, sung by Parul Ghosh, Sudha Malhotra, Manna Dey, Sailesh Kumar and Chorus.


Song- Vande Maataram (Aandolan)(1951) Singers- Parul Ghosh, Sudha Malhotra, Manna Dey, Sailesh Kumar, Lyrics-Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, MD- Pannalal Ghosh
