Hullo Atuldom

We are on the last date of the first month of the 21st year of the 21st century.

January happens to be a cold month in the northern hemisphere of the earth. And India is in the middle of having winter which is characterized by fog, mist, cold winds etc depending on the Latitude that one resides on. When I used to be in Mumbai, the closest I came to experiencing ‘Sardi’, ‘Thandi’ etc was in the last week of December or first week of January. That too in the morning hours, till about 8 o’clock, then the thermometer would read round about 27 and 30 degrees Celsius during the day. I don’t remember seeing fog or mist there, but I had different climatic experiences once we shifted to Bangalore. I have seen all winter related features which last from November to January end with temperatures dropping to 10 degrees etc. Now in my current station, which is in the midst of lots of greenery and away from the hustle bustle of city-life, though the temperature did not touch 10 degrees on any day, we have been experiencing thick fog, cold winds, cold floors, etc.

All this talk of winter and cold climate, in addition to sharing pictures of fog with friends and family reminded me of a whole set of songs:- ‘jab chali thandi hawa’, ‘thandi hawaa yeh chaandni suhaani’, ‘thandi hawaa kaali ghaata aa hi gayi jhoom ke’, ‘thandi hawaayen lehraake aayen’, ‘thandi thandi hawaa mein dil lalchaaye’, ‘mujhko thand lag rahi hain’ etc etc.

The songs that I have mentioned are all popular numbers from their times. But the movies of the new century are no different. They also have songs where the different characters are reacting to cold climates with lots of guts- it takes a lot of guts to shoot these songs in cold climates, with snow etc for added effect and in costumes that are of the thinnest fabric possible like chiffon, lace etc. (Possibly the only climate appropriate dressing was Saira Banu in ‘Junglee’ and some other heroines of the ’60s and Hema Malini in a few movies of the ’70s, recently I re-saw “Dost”.) For further enhancement of the scene we may even see short dresses with long boots. My sympathies with all the female actors who have done those songs and scenes. And what do the male actors wear in such songs- long coats, mufflers, gloves etc.

In the build up to this post I recalled a 23 year old song. This song was shot in the cold climes of Australia. I had mentioned this movie to fellow-atulites, on our WhatsApp group last week, when the India- Australia cricket series was on. The uniqueness about this song is the heroine is dressed in climate appropriate clothes and we have the hero trying to be MANLY and showing of his biceps etc in half-jacket and jeans. I also read the heroine reminiscing about how the actor was shivering during the shoot.

I am talking of Preity Zinta and Bobby Deol. The movie was “Soldier” which was released in 1998. It was produced by Ramesh Taurani of Tips Records and directed by the director-duo: brothers Abbas-Mustan. It had Anu Malik as music director and Sameer was the lyricist. It was the third highest grossing album of 1998 behind “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” and “Dil Se”.

This was Preity Zinta’s debut movie though she had signed “Kya Kehna” before this. “Dil Se” and “Soldier” have billed Preity Zinta as debutant; Preity had a supporting role in “Dil Se”. She was born in Shimla on 31st January. So today is her Birthday. Last I had written a post for her birthday was when she turned 40.

She has taken a sabbatical from acting a few times since 2009 for the sake of her IPL team. She has married her long-time American partner in 2016. In her career of almost 25 years, she has acted with all the top actors of the ’90s and later years. She has also acted in a movie with Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor where her character was negative and Schizophrenic. She was praised for her portrayal of the character. She also appeared alongside The Big B in an English language film that was directed by Rituparno Ghosh “The Last Lear” in 2007, this was a film-inside-a-film drama. She has also played the traditional glamorous actress in movies. She has shared screen space with top actresses like Madhuri Dixit, Rani Mukherjee etc too.

Today’s song is to wish Bobby Deol too, even if belatedly for his birthday which was on 27th, he turned 52. Born as Vijay Singh Deol into the film industry as the youngest child of Dharmendra and Prakash Kaur. He first faced the camera when he was 5 or 6 year old as the baby Dharam in “Dharam Veer” (1977). His first adult role was in “Barsaat” (1995) where another star-child Twinkle Khanna made her debut. He has one more “Barsaat” (2005) in the list of his films. He has appeared in a few mutli-starrers and also shared screen space with his father and brother in a few of their home productions. The “Yamla Pagla Deewana” series was good to see due to the Deols even if the story was lame, tame or weak. It is always entertaining to see the Deols.

76th Birthday of Javed Akhtar
————————————————————

Gham-e-dil sunnane ko jee chaahtaa hai
Tumhen aazmaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Sunaa hai ke jab se bohat door ho tum
Bohat door jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Unhen ham se koyi shikaayat nahin hai
Yunhi rootth jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Faqat hai yahi unn ki nazron ka dhokaa
Ke dhoke mein aane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Duaa hai ke ham se woh sau baar rootthen
Hamaara manaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Nazar wo na aayen par unn ki gali mein
Yunhi aane jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

—————————————————-
I could not find whose ghazal is this is, but giving it here as it rhymes with the title of the movie ‘Dil Chahta hai” (2001).

The song is a duet by Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan. All the songs of this film are penned by Javed Akhtar and composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. At the turn of the century, the melodious songs, sufiana, fusion, newer music instruments were all the new fad. And the foreign location shoots were also back with a bang in mainstream hindi films. It was not only the Yash Chopra films that were shot in Switzerland etc. There is the whole world to explore and Hindi films have been shot at many locations.

The film ‘Dil chahta hai’(2001) was shot at Australia, when the character Akash played by Amir Khan, moves to Sydney to look after his father business operation in Australia. The character of Akash was the meaty one in the film, with all the jokes to crack, all the drama to enact. It was the role of Sameer played by Saif Ali Khan that was less complex, understated but full of contradictions. Akshaye Khanna’s character was Siddarth, the quite sensitive artist, who looks at the world through the artistic eye.

I saw the movie again recently after this last post and thought again, that it is hard to believe that it is a 20 year old movie. Obviously made at the turn of the century, it has those vintage mobile phones, which look like antiques to today’s generation. Our generation has seen the most sweeping changes in lifestyle, of all the previous generations. The earlier generations, had very less comforts than us but I dare say their happiness quotients was higher than us, as they had less expectations and desires. The more our generation has achieved, it wants more of it, the comforts and the excitement, and thus losing out on the contentment in life.

Moving to the film, it has a few one liner jokes that have become a part of lingo between friends in my generation, like “hum log cake khaane ke liye kahin bhi jaa sakte hain”, ‘Waise bhi perfection ko improve karna mushkil hotaa hai”, ‘Kitni ajeeb baat hai, ke ham teenon hi Sydney jaa rahe hain – tum, main aur yeh flight” wagera wagera !

The song of this post is a duet by Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, with composers producing unique musical sounds, using newly invented music instruments. The song is shot in and around Sydney, in parks showing ancient trees, with Amir and Priety take the arial tour in a helicopter, overlooking the famous Lotus shaped Opera house at the famous harbor, picnic in the garden near the marina, travel in the city bus etc. I am not sure if one of the parks shown is the Botanical garden or not. The characters are having food at the cafes, and roaming around down town or up town whichever way you want to look at it, walking the harbour bridge which has the railway, road and walkway on the same level, while singing this song. Literally a steel sheet re-enforced ghat is shown to emphasis the line ‘pyaar ke ghat jo utarte hain’, which is carpeted with Chinese grass :-).

After one such outing the couple is returning home by the metro train, when Priety misses it, and left alone at the platform, while the train moves away. While Priety is waiting, an old man looking like a poor street person is approaching her and she is scared. At the same time Aamir returns by the returning train, and seeing that the old man has scared Preity, goes and hugs the old man saying ‘did she scare you?” ‘she did? how mean of her”. This is a movie and hence the joke. The big city crime scene is not a joke anywhere in the world.

Australia is a unique country, in a sense second only to USA. USA has a lot more mixture of different races. But Australia is something, which never sought independence from the colonial powers, because by the time the British empire was done with the continent, the aboriginals were extinct and the survivors were the one who had come to serve the British interests. So, no nativity and no going back to the past and not much history recorded of the pre-colonial era. Only to look towards the future, which is not a bad state to be in, all things considering. No wonder, it has been the land of opportunities for European, Asians, chinese, afrikans and Polynesians alike in the 20th century. It thrives in its solitary splendor in the southern hemisphere with jewel like cities dotting its coast line. The Chinese might have been the neighbors of long forgotten aboriginal races of the continent, as the continent is a snug fit into the south china sea. When the continents were a single land mass, of course.

Today is the 76th Birthday of Javed Akhtar, so to celebrate, here is this new age song penned by him. A poet is a champion who plays with words, and Javed Akhtar is a champion of champions in this regard.


Song-Jaane kyun log pyaar karte hain (Dil Chaahta Hai)(2001) Singers-Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Lyrics-Javed Akhtar, MD-Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy

Lyrics

Jaane kyun log pyaar karte hain

pyaar mein
sochiye to bas gham hain
pyar mein
jo sitam bhi hon kam hain
pyaar mein
sar jhukaana padtaa hai
dard mein
muskuraana padtaa hai
zehar kyun zindagi mein bharte hain
jaane kyun log pyaar karte hain
jaane kyun uun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun

pyar bin jeene mein

pyaar jis ko nahin wo

pyaar bin jeene mein
rakkhaa kya hai
pyaar jis ko nahin wo
tanhaa hai
pyar sau rang le ke aata hai
pyar hi zindagi sajaata hai
log chhup chhup ke pyaar karte hain
jaane kyun saaf kehte darte hain
jaane kyun oon
jaane kyun
o jaane kyun
jaane kyun

pyaar bekaar ki museebat hai
pyaar har tarah khoobsoorat hai
ho pyar se ham dur hi achchhe
arre pyaar ke sab roop hain sachche
ho ooo
pyar ke ghaat jo utarte hain
doobte hain na wo ubharte hain
jaane kyun
jaane kyun
pyaar to khair sabhi karte hain
jaane kyun aap hi mukarte hain
jaane kyun
jaane kyun

jaane kyun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun

A.R. Rehman’s 54th Birthday on 06.01.2021
———————————————————-

Jo pehle din hi se dil ka kaha na kartey ham
To ab yeh logon ki baatien sunaana kartey ham

Agar na haath hmein uss dilrubaa ke dil detey
To dil par haathh sadaa dhar liya na kartey ham

Wo aafat-e-dil-o-jaan pe agar na martey
To apne marney ki duaa har dam duaa kiya na karte ham

Na hosh khotey agar uss pari ki baaton par
To aap hi aap aisi baatien kiya na kartey ham

Na lagti aankh to din raat sotey hi rehtey
Kisi ki chaah na karte to kya na karte ham

Jo ghambuton ka na hotaa teri tarah ‘Momin’
To dekhcharkh` ko hai, hai kh`udaa na kartey ham

– Momin Kh`anMomin –

I heard this above ghazal recital and liked the simplicity of expressions. It was credited to Momin Khan Momin(1800–14 May 1852), so I thought there has to be more to this ghazal. I found a ‘Deewan-e-Momin’ on Rekhta and confirmed that there are few more ash’aarin the complete ghazal. He was a contemporary of Mirza Ghalib.A most famous sha’ir by MomimKh`an Momin is this:

Tum mere paas hotey ho goyaa
Jab koyi dusraa nahin hotaa

It is said that Mirza Ghalib was so impressed by this sha’ir, that he had offerred his whole “Deewan-e-Ghalib” in exchange of this one sha’ir. Of course, in true legend’s style, the exchange did not happen. Even if there was no organised law for protection of intellectual property than, the exchange would have been redundant. Because Ghalib’s work is Ghalib’s and Momin’s kalaam remains Momin’s, after all.

Here is the famous sha’ir by the underrated poet which inspired this song:

Woh jo ham mein tum mein qaraar thha, tumhen yaad ho ke na yaad ho
Wohi, ya’ani wa’adaa nibaah ka,tumhen yaad ho ke nayaad ho

I felt compelled to give some details to emphasis the significance of Momin Kh`an Momin, as there is not much written about him on this blog.

Wikipedia says

“Momin was something of a polymath, with several interests apart from medicine and poetry. He was also competent inmathematics, geomancy, astrology, chess and Hindustani music.” And that his grave is located in Delhi, near the parking lot of Maulana Azad Medical college. What I have learned is that this medical college is India’s top medical college, second only to AIIMS, Delhi, I am yet to come across a doctor who has studied there. So now I am resolving to ask him/her whenever I encounter an alumnus, about the grave of Momin Kh’an Momin.

**********

Now to the real subject of this post, i.e A. R. Rehman. Though I grew up on the average, good, very good, fabulous and fantastic hindi film music of the golden era of hindi film music, A R Rehman still came as a breath of exotic air in 1992 with his debut film ‘Roja’. The translated lyrics from Tamil was a huge drawback of the songs of that film, but the touching melody and the brand new sounds of A R Rehman’s orchestration more than overpowered it. He has come a long way from those days, as has hindi film music. He has travelled through the waves of adulations, via his music school, his acumen in being the first musician to actually own the music he creates, through Sufiana, to fusion, Western classical, via the oscars etc., he is a global celebrity. A big celebrity in a hugely populated country like india is bound to be recognised at global level, that is the power of a big market.

The song I am presenting here is from the film “Jaane tu ya jaane na” (2008), with A R Rehman’s music and lyrics by Abbas Tyrewala. Seven singers are singing this song namely Benny Dayal, Satish Chakravarthy, Sayonara, Philips, Darshana, Svetha, Bhargavi, and Anupama Deshpande.

Only one song Pappu Can’t dance saala (Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na), is so far posted, making this the second song from the film. This is an outdoorsy song filmed on very pristine locations, near the river, where Imran Khan and Genelia D’souza with friends are picnicking, and having fun. The location of shooting is a bit away from the usual Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar, but nearby, with the long road, which goes along Krishna River. This is the other route for travelling to Mahabaleshwar.

This film is produced by A’amir Khan and his cousin Mansoor Khan. The lyricist A’bbas Tyrewala is also the director of the film for launch of A’amir Khan’s nephew, I’mran khan. Quite the family affair this is, so my assessment of locations this song is filmed is bang on target. More so, as I have recently travelled the route, remembered this song and looked up to confirm that the mountains haven’t changed much in 12 years 🙂 :-).


SongNazren milaana nazren churaana (Jaane Tu Yaa Jaane Naa)(2008) Singers-Benny Dayal, Satish Chakravarthy, Sayonara, Philips, Darshana, Svetha, Bhargavi, Anupama Deshpande Lyrics-Abbas Tyrewala, MD-A R Rahman

Bhaari bhaari meena kumari
ghar mein jaa ke maara maari

This was the sales pitch sh’air by some urchins in Mumbai local trains, selling small items like hairbands, hair clips, fancy earrings, finger rings and combs etc. I have had an highly educating experience of travelling in local trains on regular basis from 1988 to 1994, during peak hours, traversing the length and breadth of Mumbai on central, western and harbor lines. The sales pitch and the bol bachchan street seller’s ingenuity in using colourful simile’s, in the present song reminded me of the long forgotten ditty above. (bhaari means costly or rich in mumbaiyya)

I have a tendency of getting involved in different types of hobbies and activities if they catch my interest. I usually follow these interests for a while till something else occupies the space in my time. In school we had a learning topic of ‘home science’. They taught cooking, stitching, crocheting, embroidery etc. But I was only doing those things, to the extent necessary. But crocheting and embroidery had sort of caught my interest and I dabbled in them whenever the opportunity arose. If my mom was doing some knitting, then I would want to take up crochet and finish the wool which she brought to knit some sweater etc. I found the creativity there fascinating, especially in embroidery. Also crocheting and embroidery with wool is quicker.

Once I saw an advert in a magazine for a thread manufacturing co. The ad had a very colourfully embroidered one dimensional ‘charminar’. Not the cigarette box, but the actual ‘charminar’ of Hyderabad. It must have been early or late 80’s. I liked the colourful mural like look of it so much, that I wanted to make it immediately. I got hold of whatever new cloth piece I could find at home, which happened to be orange. I made a drawing of the charminar on a paper and traced it on to the cloth. Once basic work is done, then there is the need for the colourful silk thread, plus a big size ring to fix the cloth and needles. All the paraphernalia was arranged and I set to work, till it finished. It is one my treasured created things, along with one another similar whimsy design which was actually front portion of a small jacket. Many years later I had that embroidered ‘charminar’ framed. Now that frame is also broken, and the orange cloth is lying somewhere in a drawer, waiting reframing or whatever is its destiny.

It so happened that I visited Hyderabad city in April 2019. There was a wedding to attend and some business related visit. It was my second visit there, first being in 2008, which incidentally coincided with the annual “Numa’ish”. It is a traditional yearly event in Hyderabad, which is an exhibition cum sale, on a huge scale and an area is devoted to this “numa’ish”. Special buses are run from the outskirts and surrounding areas for people to travel to and fro, and all that razzmatazz. People came for this exhibition in droves. Now I don’t know if it is the same with all the changes, huge malls being more attractive. I myself found it easier to roam around alone at IKEA, while my husband attended to business.

The annual “Numaish” is held in the second half of january and the night prior to ‘republic day’ all govt. building were lit up with colourful lights. We visited the ‘charminar’ on the night of 25th January, to see it aglow with white lights. During that visit we couldn’t go inside the monument, which we rectified during the 2019 visit. A portion of it was closed even, as it was damaged during the previous monsoon. The huge complex of ‘chowmohalla palace’ is in close vicinity, but it is like an oasis of peace, if feels like another place altogether in total contrast to the area surrounding ‘charminar’. I think it must have been a walled city once upon a time with its multiple gates in all 4 directions, as was traditional for great cities.

Now of course, the city manages to hold in great contrasts, with all the commercial areas hosting huge multinationals office complexes.

After the 2019 visited, I looked and looked for a song featuring the city of Hyderabad to post. But I did not find any such songs. But yesterday I was looking for a good song composed by Sardar Malik, and found this Rafi solo, a sales pitch song, composed by Sardar Malik, written by Hasrat Jaipuri which is entirely shot in locations of Hyderabad old city. It is said that “dhoondne se khudaa miltaa hai”, so what is a song, how would it not be found. I found this song when I had given up finding such a song. The movie is “Mera ghar mere bachche”(1960) and the song is picturised on Charlie. The films cast included Sohrab Modi, Sulochana, Sudesh Kumar, Kumari Naaz, Balraj – I, Daisy Irani, Kavita, Nana Palsikar, Subbiraj, Sadhna Chowdhry, and S’aadat Ali, apart from Charlie. This movie is produced and directed by Sohrab Modi.

The rendition by Rafi Sahab is as usual the star of the show second only to the magnificent charminar filmed 60 years ago. The print is good, so some other historical buildings can also be seen in the song, like Safdarjung museum(ghanta ghar), the Chowmohalla palace entrance etc.

6 out of the 9 songs in the movie are already posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Bahaaron se poochho mere pyaar ko tum 22 September 2009
Dil mera naache thunak thunak 4 September 2010
Chanda ke desh mein rehti ek raani 11 March 2012
Wo hi oodi oodi ghataayen hain 1 July 2016
Zulm bhi karte hain aur kehte hain ke fariyaad na kar 19 June 2017
Peena haraam hai to nigaahen milaa ke pee 4 September 2020

The expressions in the song, like ‘sauda haathhon haathh hai’ , ‘muraaden dil ki bar aayen’, ‘andhere mein bahot kuchh soojh jaayegaa’, ‘aap ki munh mein ghee shakkar’,’ maare sharam ke phir gayaa paani’, so freely used are a refreshing reminder of a very civilized part of mumbaiyya dialect.

From the three movies eligible for the ‘blog ten-year’ challenge today, we have already represented one today in the morning and taking this another one to add to the celebrations for today. This song is from the 1964 movie ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ and it is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. This song is picturised on Mehmood and Shubha Khote, where the two lovers are singing and enjoying in their ‘famous’ style 😊

As mentioned in the earlier post total four songs were represented on the blog on 19.07.2010 including a song from this movie ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ (1964).

Music for this movie is composed by Aadi Narayan Rao. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie. So far, the following songs from ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ have been posted on the blog;

 Jaane Mujhe Kya Ho Gaya  14.08.2017

Seven songs of this film have already been covered on the blog, including the multiple version song ‘Taaron Ki Aankhon Ka Taara Tu’. So now, song are now left to be covered. One song being posted today will leave this movie only one short of ‘Yippeeee Land’ 😊

When I checked the earlier song posts of this movie, I noted that one song from this movie Aa Bhi Ja Rasiya was covered by our respected late Bharatbhai under his ‘Raag Maalikaa’ series (this was song number 12 in that series).

On this day today when our blog is celebrating 12th birth anniversary I take this opportunity to remember and pay our tributes to Bharatbhai who is not with us this year to celebrate this occasion. We all miss him today.

But I am sure wherever he is, he is enjoying this ‘musical journey’ and showering his blessings to this blog and on all ‘Atulites’ today.

Lyrics for the today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song …

On this day ten years ago, two songs were covered. One song from “Samundar”(1957) and one song from “Qaidi No 911″(1959).
“Samundar”(1957) has been YIPPEED by now. That leaves “Qaidi No 911″(1959) as the only candidate for Blog Ten Year challenge today.

“Qaidi No 911″(1959) had six songs in it. Four songs (including a multiple version song) have been covered in the blog.

Here are the details of the songs from this movie that have been covered so far:-

Meethi meethi baaton se bachna zaraa Multiple version song 29-Sep-2009
Pyaar bhari ye ghataayen 9-May-2010
Tere teer ko hamne pyaar se dil mein rakh liyaa 2-Jan-2012

Latching on to this Blog Ten year Challenge opportunity, Prakashchandra has sent me the lyrics of a song from “Qaidi No 911″(1959). this song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

The song is picturised as a roadside tamasha dance song on the beach of Chaupati I guess. Mukri is trying to attract customers for his bioscope, but the potential customers get diverted to watch the dance performance of Nanda. 🙂

The picturistion is somewhat reminiscent of “Don”(198) song,“Ee hai Bambai nagariya tu dekh babua”.

Lyrics

o baabu tel maalish

chamka ke doon jo abhi joote ko baandh
dharti pe sab ye kahen utra hai chaand
chamka ke doon jo abhi joote ko baandh

“Parvarish”(1977) was directed by Manmohan Desai for A G Films, Bombay. This movie had Shammi Kpoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Nitu Singh, Shabana Azmi, Kadar Khan, Amjad Khan, Dev Kumar, Indrani Mukherji, Hina Kausar, Master Ratan, Master Tito, Chand Usmani, Sheikh, Bhushan Tiwari, Viju Khote, Tom Alter, Yusuf, Meena, Baby Shalu, Moolchand etc in it.

This movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This song is picturised on Shabana Azmi and Nitu Singh who play pickpockets on the streets of Bombay.While Nitu Singh was a natural in such a role, Shabana Azmi was a total misfit in this role. So movie makers rightly avoided goving her similar non serious roles in future.

Blog Ten Year Challenge (2009-2019): Song number 21
—————————————————–

Hullo Atuldom

Happy Holi!

Some movies have a lot of memories attached to them. Yash Chopra’s “Chaandni” is one such movie. The year was 1989 and I had been to Mumbai (maayka) for my delivery. So, I had a lot of free time when I could interact with all my friends and neighbours like never before (and never have I had a similar opportunity too) 😉 that made that visit to Mumbai special. For those Atulites who know me- I had shifted out of Mumbai post marriage and so the term “visit to Mumbai”.

Getting back to “Chaandni” – those were the days when there were VCRs in many home and people used to rent Video Cassettes of movies which they couldn’t see in the theatres. I have seen a few movies in that way in the company of my neighbour’s family and more importantly their son. Their son was a year or two older to me so he was a mentor, guide, friend, idol and so many other things for me. To start off (as was the norm in those times) he was my Rakhi bro but we had a different equation between the two of us. He being my idol – I started liking Rekha- his favourite and he, on his part, made an effort to like Amitabh because he doted on me. Whatever love I have for physics, all branches of mathematics, and history is because I followed his way of studying them.

Oh, I again went away from Chaandni- so “Parinda” and “Chaandni” were the two movies the two of us saw back-to-back. “Chaandni” was a typical triangular love story. To start of it is a simple love story where the girl- Chaandni (Sridevi)- is wooed not-so-easily by the guy- Rohit (Rishi Kapoor). But the guys’ family has an issue with the alliance but accept it because their ‘only’ son is adamant. They go ahead have an engagement etc. But unfortunately, Rohit meets with an accident and is bound to a wheel chair. His family decides that this is the best time to humiliate the girl and so Rohit is forced to break-off the engagement so that the girl doesn’t have to face his family’s behaviour.

Now what does the girl do? She leaves Delhi, comes to Mumbai and lands a job in Lalit’s (Vinod Khanna) office. He is already pining for his dead wife when he falls in love with her, she takes some time to reciprocate though she is always civil to him and his mother. The next twist in the story comes when Lalit meets Rohit in Switzerland, where he has gone for business and Rohit has come for treatment. They become friends and decide that on returning to India they will introduce their respective girl friends and also marry on the same day etc. Isn’t that enough to twist the story further and make it a triangle?

As for the songs posted on the blog this date in 2009 – here they are

This will be the 7th song from “Chaandni” which had Shiv-Hari as music directors and Anand Bakshi as lyricist. I cannot keep myself from saying: Sridevi looks so pretty and baby-like in this song, actually she looks like a baby through the movie. This song is shot on the streets of Delhi or New Delhi. I would like it if the Dilliwale followers of the blog help in identifying the locations. It will be nice to know. 🙂

This song is also in memory of the aforementioned friend who loved to ape Rishi Kapoor and his sunglasses and sweaters. This friend was also a Dilliwala for a brief period of his life.

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 72 #
#Shor Mach Gayaa Shor… Dekho Aaya Maakhanchor#
———————————————————————-

Here is wishing all a very Happy Janmashtami Festival and May god shower his love and blessings for all …

As I had said in one of my earlier articles that Seasons and Festivals also trigger some musical memories, and we already have many songs for such occasions.

Songs that bring back memories…

I have very fond memories of celebrations of Janmashtami in our colony we were staying then when I was growing.

I remember that bhajans/songs would be played on loud speakers since morning and among the many topical (Hindi/Marathi)songs played, the following songs associated with this festival got permanently engraved in my mind:-

Kanhaiyya kanhaiyaa tujhe aana padega (Maalik- 1972)
Shor march gayaa shor dekho aaya maakhan chor (Badlaa-1974)
Krishna Krishna bolo Krishna (Naya Din Nayi Raat-1974)
Govind bolo hari Gopal bolo (chhup chhup Meera roye…- Johny Mera Naam-1970)

Songs/bhajans would start since morning. That would be regularly interrupted by announcements about timings of ‘Pooja’ and ‘Prasad’ so that nobody missed them. 🙂

Then people would also be informed about the ‘Dahi Handi’ programme to be held near the Temple Complex which was an important part of this festival.

We children would eagerly wait to watch the ‘matki-phod’ and enjoy the excitement and also arranging similar ‘dahi handis’ on a ‘smaller’ or ‘very smaller’ 🙂 (if we compared it now) scale around our quarters.

And, of course, for us children the other main attraction was the ‘gopal kaala’ (Prasad specially prepared on the occasion of Janmashtami.

It was very exciting and thrilling experience to watch the seniors participating in the ‘Dahi Handi’ then. The excitement and thrill is still there even today when the programmes are held around every Janmashtami or watching the happenings in news or live on TV nowadays.

(And so when I get connected with this blog I had shared all these songs in 2012 itself, except the one from ‘Johny Mera Naam-1970’ which was already there posted on 30.06.2012.

The song from ‘Naya Din Nayi Raat-1974’ was posted on 05.09.2015, and I hope to present the remaining one from ‘Maalik-1972’ too on the blog, in future…

As I said may be there were other filmy/non-filmy songs and bhajans. But the above songs continue to grow with me and are pure nostalgia for me.
Today’s song that I am presenting herewith is full of this excitement and captures the joy and thrill in right spirit of the ‘Dahi handi’ or ‘matki fod’ during the celebration of ‘Janmashtami’ …

This song is from the 1974 movie ‘Badlaa’.

‘Badlaa-1974’ was produced by R.C. Kumar for ‘Century Films, Bombay’. It was directed by Vijay, who also wrote the Story of this movie. It had Shatrughan Sinha, Moushumi Chatterjee, Ajit, Johny Walker, supported by Padma Khanna, Alka, Shetty, Mohan Choti, Maruti, Bhagwan, Keshav Rana, Ram Mohan, Sabina, Mohan Sherry, Kamal Deep, Mac Mohan, V. Gopal, Johny Bakshi, Desh, C.S. Dubey and Mehmood.

Nirupa Roy, Arun Irani, Anwar Hussain, Paintal, Sujit Kumar, Shyama, Madan Puri, Harindranath Chattopadhyay, Iftikhar, Sudhir, Raj Mehra, Randhir, Jayshree T, Meena T, Shefali and Kajal make a guest appearance in this movie.

Screenplay for this movie was written by Jagdish Kanwal and Vijay. Jagdish Kanwal also wrote the dialogues of this movie. Editing for this movie was done by S. Chakravarty who was assisted by Herman Topno.

This movie had five songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Minoo Puroshottam gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was released with restricted viewing (A certificate) and passed by Censor Board on 07.03.1974.

I had not watched this movie so cannot say much about this movie and its performance at the box office then. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

The picturization of this today’s song seems to be inspired by the picturization of the ‘iconic govinda song’ ‘Govinda aala re aala …zara matki sambhaal brijbaalaa’.

This song was shot by Director Manmohan Desai on the streets of Bombay. This very popular song was at rank 31 in the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year in 1963.

The next Janmashtmi song that was created after the song under discussion was from ‘Khuddaar’ in 1982 – ‘mach gayaa shor saari nagri re’ sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. Though it was popular that time it didn’t make to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’. However two other songs from the same movie were there in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ and one of them ‘angrezi mein kehte hain ke’ was at number one.
I was under the impression that this song ‘mach gayaa shor saari nagri re’ has already been posted on the blog, however this is yet to be posted.

That brings us to the today’s song which stood at 22 in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year in 1974.

The instrumental musical interludes played in between this song will remind listeners the other song composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal – ‘shaadi banaane ko Keshto chalaa’ from ‘Chaacha Bhatija -1977’

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song (may be forgotten now) and celebrate ‘Janmashtami’ reminding ourselves of the many aspects of Lord Krishna …

[Editor’s note-Lyrics of this song was sent by Prakashchandra as well long long ago]
