Three years ago on this day, we had a song from the 1974 Balaji Arts’ “Kunwara Baap” in the blog. Today let us have one more song from the same movie. This is the song with which the movie opens and the movie titles roll on the screen as the song progresses.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

So today (30 june 2016) is the last day of June. On reviewing the page of Anniversaries on our blog I find that we have a few music directors whose birthdays were in this month. We had Sajjad Hussain, Hemant Kumar, Madan Mohan & RD Burman. And today 30th June is the birth anniversary of Kalyanji Veerji Shah. I mean Kalyanji of the Kalyanji – Anandji Duo. He would have turned 88 today.

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 02
———————————————————————-

wo dil jo maine maangaa thaa magar gairon ne paayaa thaa
badi shai hai agar, uski pashemaani mujhe de do

Yesterday I visited the page again on the song ‘Tum Apna Ranj o Gham, Apni Pareshaani Mujhe De Do‘. I know the words are ‘badi shai hai agar‘, on which there is the long thread of comments. ‘Shai’, in common urdu is a thing or an object.  ‘badi shai hai ‘ literally means , its a big thing or a big deal.  As it is said in English that ‘its a big deal for me’ or means a lot to me.

Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan – 6

Aah, coming back to Bombay.:)

In the first five episodes of this series, I have covered the Bombay gangouts that took place in December last year.  However, my tales of Bombay are not yet done. Moving forward with this series, I am going to be writing about my personal experiences with this enigmatic city which is a confluence of contradictions.

Amitabh – The Later Decades – 5
—————————————————–

The carrying capacity of this man is amazing. There is an aura about him that continues to draw the audiences. The measure of his success and popularity is pretty much sustained, as his fans continue to return to the cinema/video time after time after time. I believe that the secret behind this sustenance has been his capacity to re-invent himself, and his portrayals.

I must frankly admit that I have kept away from the mainstream cinema, mostly after the seventies faded away, and a new order both in terms of performers, as well as music, came on to the scene.  The time also coincided with the years amounting to almost two and a half decades that I was traveling, and away from India most of the time.  The viewing of current films was random and patchy at the best, and that I never went out of my way to acquire and watch a current film.  Unless it was recommended to me, and that too, by someone whose judgement I would trust.

Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan – 4

         Bombay Gangout – Part 4
         After The Meet.

After the gangout session, as everyone dispersed and proceeded to their respective destinations, Srinivas (SignalTimer) and I headed to the local train station, that is just like across the road from the gangout meeting place.  We took the train going south; we had a visit scheduled, to meet another common friend who is beset with the same passion of the Hindi film music from the Golden Era.  The name is Kushal Gopalka.  Some of the group members in Bombay may be familiar with this name, as he is active in this space, in a very different and interesting manner.

First came “Mother India”(1957) and then came “Son Of India”(1962). Both were produced by Mehboob Khan. Title role in Mother India was played by Nargis whereas the titkle role in “Son of India” was played by Sajid Khan. This Sajid Khan is different from the Sajid Khan that we are familiar with. This Sajid Khan was an adopted son of Mehboob Khan and he acted not only in “Son of India”(1962) but in “Mother India”(1957) as well, playing child version of Sunil Dutt in “Mother India”(1957).
