# The Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 5 # Suresh Wadkar #
———————————————–———————————–——————

Welcome all to this fifth article in this series where we are discussing Special Voices that made their debut in HFM in the Seventies and carved their own niche on the HFM scene.

Some of them enjoyed success for a little while only to fade away with passage of time. Some of them became popular and continued to remain so for considerable time.

No matter how they fared at the HFM scene, all of them contributed in enriching HFM. All of them provided music lovers with many memories to cherish and savour.

Today we will be discussing about one such talented artist- Singer- who made his debut in 1977 and over the years has given us many memorable songs and who is active even now (I think his latest film song was from ‘Bramhaand Nayak Sai Baba-2016’ and a NF -ghazal album sung by him was released in 2016 in memory of his guru ‘Acharya Jiyalal Vasant’ i.e. ‘Chupke Chupke’) In addition, he is active in singing Marathi and other regional language songs as well.)

In his career spanning almost forty years, he has more than five hundred songs to his credit (if the sources I am referring to are correct). And given the number of songs he has sung I can say that his must be the most prolific artist among all the artists who will be featuring in this series …

Incidentally I get a chance to share one of his songs for our ASAD – 10th anniversary celebrations. And regulars to this blog who have listened to this song ‘Kaale kaale baadal jab bhi chhayenge’ and the male voice in it, I am sure must be still feeling the sweetness, the magic and the melodious range of this voice lingering in their ears still now or for that matter of any songs sung by him leave this impact on the listeners as usual.

Suresh Ishwar Wadkar was born on 7th August’1954 in Kolhapur (Maharashtra).
We wish him a belated happy Birthday and healthy and peaceful life ahead…
(Belatedly as I could not finish the write up in time and send it to our editors in time).

Another story of coming from a very humble background and scaling newer heights through sheer dedication, sincerity and perseverance in the field of music.

Suresh Wadkar’s father was a ‘mill worker’ in Sitaram Mills. His father was very fond of music and particularly ‘bhajans’. And the surroundings in which he grown up was traditional and cultural as all festivals were celebrated with fervour and music being an intrinsic part of it.

His father was very fond of ‘bhajans’ and he used to attend many programmes of ‘bhajans’ where Suresh then 4/5 years old used to accompany his father in these programmes of ‘Bhajan’. That is where he got with in all our traditions and cultures and listening to talented singers. And as it happened he was singing something and that was noticed by his father, and thus started his formal training classes in music when he was five only.

His guru from Sangli Shri Digrajkar was then giving him lessons in singing. He advised Suresh’s father to let Suresh continue with music and singing.

When he was eight he come to Acharya Jiyalal Vasant’s gurukul and Acharya ji groomed him into what he is today. He took care of all of his education and all. And looking into his passion when he was only thirteen years old his guru Jiyalal ji advised him to give training to other students in his institute.
Looking at his understanding of music, Acharya ji advised Suresh Wadkar to pursue education and degree in music. Following his guru’s advice Suresh Wadkar joined Prayag Sangeet Samiti and secured his degree of ‘Prabhakar’ in music and later joined ‘Arya Vidya Mandir’ in Mumbai as a ‘Music Teacher.

Suresh Wadkar, naturally, has great respect and admiration for his Guru ji and other disciples at the ‘gurukul’ – his ‘guru bhai’ and ‘guru behen’ and his elder sister i.e. daughter of Acharya ji – Prem Vasant– he speaks about them with great love and passion. And he has in deep sense all the gratitude for whatever his ‘guru ji’ has given to him and that is why after his ‘guru ji’ passed away being an elder among all the disciples he has shouldered the responsibility of his ‘guru ji’s legacy’ in the form of the school of music founded by his guru – ‘Ajivasan’ (this also gives online training in music).

He also started an online music school, called SWAMA (Suresh Wadkar Ajivasan Music Academy), (an innovative initiative) under Ace Open University continue to impart training in music in New Jersey. He, his wife, and his ‘guru sister’ visits every three months to supervise the operations and classes going on there.

and for him ‘music’ is the most difficult and greatest form of art which needs more dedication, seriousness and religiousness in efforts.

He has very high regards towards all the music directors who had given him the opportunity to sing and specially for the Mangeshkars he speaks about them with respect and gratitude. In his interview here one can listen his thoughts and just imagine what kind of a ‘noble’ and ‘pure’ character must be and that is what I think we finds in his voice too.

He was also present in the recent Jaidev Birth Centenary celebrations held at NCPA (NCPA Bandish music festival) Mumbai where our Respected Senior Shri Bharat Bhai was also present.

How this ‘anokhi aawaaz’ make his debut in the Hindi Film Industry is another interesting story.

It so happened that in 1970s (in 1976 to be specific) a big musical competition organised by ‘Sur-Singaar Sansad’ was held where participants aspiring to be singers from all over India participated this competition.
However, Suresh Wadkar’s singing impressed everybody and he was awarded ‘Madan Mohan Puraskar’.
Famous music directors like Jaidev, Ravindra Jain, Pt Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Sudhir Phadke and Pt Shivkumar Sharma and Pt Hariprasad Chaurasia (Shiv-Hari) were the panel of the judges who judge the competition and selected the winner.

Ravindra Jain while announcing Suresh Wadkar as winner also announced that he will be singing a song in his next movie and thus happened ‘vrishti pade taapur tupoor’ …

The next opportunity for Suresh Wadkar came straight way from the most respected and talented Music director Jaidev ji who given him the opportunity to sing in ‘Gaman-1978’. Later on, Suresh Wadkar also worked with him as his assistant and sing for him whenever he was given an opportunity to do so.

While assisting Jaidev ji he got to learn many things of music and the nuances of composing music.

Somehow as they say it was destined to be, Lata Mangeshkar is said to have heard about this voice and she was so impressed by his singing that she recommended him to the famous music duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal and also to Khayyam Saab and Kalyanji bhai-Anand ji bhai.

After that, it was no looking back for Suresh Wadkar and he keep getting many opportunities from all music directors ruling the HFM at that time.

***

For me, I have vague memories of this song ‘vrishti pade taapur tupoor’ being frequently heard on radio & loudspeakers and I do like it very much.

Then ‘seene mein jalan’, I remember I liked it very much and may be that was the time when for the first time I must have been got to know about the singer or we among friends must have discussed about this voice (looking my interests in HFM since childhood, I think I can say that).

Then I remember this song from ‘Krodhi’ in 1981 ‘chal chameli baag mein’ was a regular at the ‘Binaca Geetmala’ and it stood 16th in the annual programme of the Binaca Geetmala that year.
However, the next year’s – 1982’s ‘Binaca Geetmala’ in its annual programme saw as many as four songs having Suresh Wadkar’s voice viz. ‘Main hoon Prem Rogi’, ‘Meri qismat mein tu nahin shaayad’, ‘Muhabbat hai kyaa cheez hamko bataao’ all from ‘Prem Rog-1982’ and ‘Megha re megha re’ from ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’.

I think with the songs of ‘Prem Rog-1981’ Suresh Wadkar became a household name and almost all of its songs were a huge hit though ‘bhanware ne khilaaya phool’ is my favourite. It is different thing that not this song but the other songs of ‘Prem Rog’ (couple of which I don’t like then), make to the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’.

Before that we had ‘megha re megha re’ from ‘Pyaasa Saawan’ taking us to reach out the clouds about to rain ‘the message of love’ … and we got soaked in the melodious voice of Suresh Wadkar …

Surprisingly before that we had his voice at number seven of annual ‘Binaca Geetmala-1979’ singing ‘Jijaaji jiaaji honewaale jijaaji’ in which he lent voice for Vinod Mehra in ‘Saajan Bina Suhaagan-1978’.

In 1981 we also have the magical ‘ye aankhen dekh kar ham saari duniya’ from ‘Dhanwan’ which spelled its magic on audience and it was too very popular and is also one of my favourite songs. (and this was his first song to appear on our blog).

After that I remember may be sometime around 1982-83 when I was on a visit to Nagpur (may be for watching the cricket between India and Pakistan at my Uncle’s home, on TV which had just reached us then, and into the old city market I heard this song playing on Radio ‘shaam rangeen huyi hai’ and I was totally taken away by this song. At that time, I was not knowing which movie it was from. Many years I keep searching for this song which I later got to know (I think it was because of this blog only) it was from. It was from the 1981 movie ‘Kaanoon Aur Mujrim’. Once again, a gem of song but not rewarded and forgotten in the midst of other popular songs then.

Also, I cannot forget ‘ae zindagi gale lagaa le’ from ‘Sadma-1983’, so close to our hearts and may have been liked by many many like me.

‘Likhne waale ne likh daale’ from Arpan from the same year was on 19th while meri qismat mein tu nahin shaayad was on 12th in 1983 annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’.

Later on, we have ‘aur kyaa ahad e wafaa hote hain’ from ‘Sunny-1984’, ‘saanjh dhaley gagan taley’ from ‘Utsav-1984’, then we have gems of songs from ‘Sur Sangam-1985, popular songs coming from ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili-1985’, ‘Khaamosh sa afsaana paani se likhaa hota’ from the UR – Libaas -1988, ‘sooni sooni ankhiyon mein’ and ‘rakibon se habibon se’ from ‘Laal Dupattaa Mal Mal Ka’, ‘lagi aaj saawan ki phir wo jhadi hai’, ‘surmayi shaam is tarah aaye’ from ‘Lekin-1990’, ‘Dil-1991’, ‘Sangeet-1992’, and there are many.
Many are my favourites too… like ‘tumse mil ke aisaa lagaa’, ‘dhadkan zaraa ruk gayee hai’, ‘husn pahaadon ka’ and many …

And how can I forget ‘hamraahi mere hamraahi’ and ‘aur is dil mein kyaa rakhaa hai’, then I had also watched this movie ‘Yaadon Ki Kasam-1985’ which had ‘Baithh mere paas tujhe dekhta rahoon’.
I also remember ‘chaudhavin raat hai, ab chaand dikha de apna’ from ‘Yaadon Ke Mausam-1990’ which was frequently heard and popular then …

Not to forget ‘chappa chappa charkha chale’ and ‘chhod aaye ham wo galiyaan’ both from ‘Maachis-1996’.

There are many … and I would like to note here that the list of his Marathi songs is another long list where I have my favourites and many gems of songs which he has sung in Marathi.

The list goes on and on and we cannot list them all (at least the popular ones) here due to space constraint (and if I have missed to mention any prominent one I would like readers to forgive me for that).

After coming into the contact with this blog initially I had shared few of his songs (in 2012-13) like ‘Goron ki naa kaalon ki’ (from Disco Dancer, which I think was also quite popular in those years), then ‘Kabhi ajnabi thhe (Title Song), and ‘Surmayi shaam’ from ‘Lekin’ which remains to be posted yet. And there are many of songs still to be posted on the blog and the reason may be that since his career started at the end of seventies and picked up later in the eighties, we still have a long way to go to represent his songs on the blog (as of now 57 only).

So, I will stop the listing them here and come back to the today’s post now …

For this post, selecting a song was very difficult because as I said above, we still have a long way to go and there are many songs to choose from.

However, I had this song ‘Ram Dulari maike gayi’ 🙂 from ‘Meri Biwi Ki Shaadi’ in my mind since many years and I had decided that I will select only this song and not any other. (And it was from a movie of seventies and nostalgic for me too 🙂 )

But, while I was browsing through the filmography of Suresh Wadkar songs I came across this movie and when I listened to this song I was totally taken by it and it started growing on me as I listened to it again and again. This was from the movie ‘Bhayaanak-1979’ composed by Usha Khanna.

I had not watched this movie earlier and even now. From the star cast I can guess that this song is lip synced on screen by Ravi Kumar, a newcomer, who was paired with Razia Sultana, another newcomer. The picturisation of this song and its singing by Suresh Wadkar makes it very special.
As the movie didn’t fare well at the box office, I think this and other songs of this movie were forgotten easily.

‘Bhayaanak-1979’ was directed by S.U. Saiyed for ‘AVM Arts International’.

It had Mithun Chakravarty, Sadhoo Meher, Niloo Phule, Chandrashekhar, Mushtaq Merchant, C.S. Dubey, Jagdish Raj, Shaheen Khan, Sushila Raut, Annu Dhawan, Sadhna Khote, Hamid Rakesh, Major Anand, Fatima, Mannu Arora, Master Danny Jr., Master Abid, Master Anis, M. Miquel, and Madan Joshi and Om Shiv Puri were the other star cast of this movie.

Ranjeeta had a special appearance in this movie. Sharad Saxena makes a Guest appearance in this movie.

The movie introduced Ranjan Garewal, Shashi Ranjan and a ‘fresh romantic pair Ravi Kumar and Razia Sultana’ (as per the movie titles 😊)

Warsi Ahmed Siddiq was the Chief Assistant Director of this movie.

Harish Choudhry was the editor of this movie, and he was assisted by Sudhir Deshpande.
M.Maroof wrote the script of this movie. Munir Shah was the Dialogue Director.
Dialogues were written by Madan Joshi, while the story was by the AVM arts story department.

It was passed by Censor Board on 23.08.1979.

It was a suspense movie released for restricted viewing with ‘A’ certificate.

Lyrics of the five songs in this movie were penned by Indivar and music was composed by Usha Khanna.

Suresh Wadkar, Hemlata, Anuradha Paudwal (wrongly spelled Paduwal in the titles of the movie) gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

(Source of Information for this post – I have used the various YT links giving biographical details of Suresh Wadkar, then his Interview available here, which I would like interested readers should visit and listen to his story in his own voice.
I also referred to Wikipedia and other information on internet and songs in my memory 
When I thought of this write up considering the information available I thought I would be able to send it before 7th Aug, however after going into the details of his life and career I doubt whether I have been able to do justice to the feelings and thoughts going in my mind, as the enormity of his talent, his struggle and what he has achieved is such that it requires a detailed study or a ‘full biography’ in the form of a book (at least for me).

Let us now enjoy today’s song … and savour this ‘magical voice’ of Suresh Wadkar. I would once again request readers to forgive me if I have from my side not been to that level in bringing this biographical sketch here. For me the memories of the voice and nostalgia, of course, is the first thing close to my heart and this is my endeavor in return for all the beautiful memories this voice and the other voices have given to me …

Earlier we had the following four posts in this series, I am listing them below for interested readers …

Maa ne kahaa thha o beta
Haseen haseen waadiyon

Yoon lagne lagi aajkal zindagaani

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 5
———————————————————————

Our blog will be completing a decade online on 19th July, 2018, and I think this is a great great achievement of Atul ji – our leader – who over all these years has keep it going with his tireless efforts and dedication towards the blog in spite of having his own personal priorities including his full-time job.

I got an opportunity to get in contact with this blog since (my first comment on 15.09.2009 – Kashti Ka Khaamosh Safar Hai …) and after that it took me few years to become a part of the ASAD team on 05.09.2012 when my first contribution – Pyaar Ka Badlaa Mujhe –  was posted on the blog. So, after a couple of months it will mark my six years on this blog as a contributor and team member of this family.

As I have said in one of my earlier articles here that when I joined this blog, my main objective was the songs which were in my memory since childhood and these were the songs which are very nostalgic for me and those which brings back wonderful memories for me – Tere Mere Yaaraane ho o. Revisiting those songs is like reviving again the old days – the days I was growing – the childhood and the ‘magic of cinema’.

Over these years since 2012, after the initial phase of sharing ‘lot of songs’ from the seventies, I have also shared some of my anecdotes and written about movies which I may not have watched but their songs are part of my memories. After coming into the contact with this blog I also got to learn and became aware of many songs of yesteryears, got to know about the great personalities associated with these songs, and about the vast treasure trove that HFM is.

In few of my earlier posts I have already written about ‘what this blog is for me (Hum Se Roothhe Hi Bhale Saara Zamaana) and how over all these years it has become an essential part of my life.  Hence, I will not repeat all those feelings here, and will come to the song in today’s post.

For this 10th anniversary celebrations of the blog, my theme is ‘nostalgia’. What I want to express in today’s post is that other than the ‘nostalgia’ of songs and movies that I share on this blog, now this blog itself has become a ‘nostalgic’ part of my daily routine. As I browse it daily it brings back memories of initial years a ‘contributor’ and the communications that I have been doing all these years with the team of contributors. And the most beautiful thing of all to happen was meeting some of our team members in person – the gang outs 🙂 – Is Mulaqaat Bas Mazaa Lijiye.

This is the most beautiful part of ‘my’ life and I think I can write it – ‘our life’. Because we, ‘strangers’ to each other, have now become as one ‘soul’ and ‘one life’ because of this blog only. The joy of meeting each other in the ‘gang outs’ cannot be described in words here. It is an everlasting feeling and after every meeting we long to meet next time with many new things to share.

Personally, I feel myself very fortunate to be a part of this blog and to have met some wonderful peoples- our seniors and fellow team members – in my lifetime and it’s like ‘jeevan dhanya ho gaya’, so what more one wants because ‘main to kuchh bhi nahin tha, is blog ne mujhe bahot kuchh bana diya’ 🙂 . In the near future I hope to meet other members whom I have not yet met in person 🙂 . This ‘Suhaana Safar’ will be continuing on and on. . .

In India, this month of July brings the monsoon and nowadays it’s raining in almost all the parts of the country. The monsoon generally takes over and covers the whole country in this month. For me, it is a regular here since months and even in this winter season here in Kenya now, we have regular rains. That is why when I think about the birthday of this blog, it was in July in 2008. Every year on the anniversary of this blog, Atul ji must be remembering those days when he was thinking of launching this blog or putting his thoughts together which later on became a ‘full online regular blog’ 😊

aise hi kuchh din rahe honge wo bhi
jab kaale kaale baadal mandlaa rahe honge
aur idhar geeton ki varsha barasne ki tayyari ho rahi thi. . .

With these thoughts in mind let us enjoy this lovely song and fall in love with HFM yet once again – the songs that brings back memories and the ‘nostalgia’ everybody has been associated with in one’s life. Because hereafter when these celebrations are over the memories of this wonderful week will become a part of our ‘nostalgia’ forever and will be remembered every year. And if the virtual gang out happens, it will also leave behind memories to cherish forever.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful composition from Rajesh Roshan penned by Qateel Shifai, and which has the sweet and melodious voices of Sadhna Sargaam and Suresh Wadkar. The film is ‘Anjaane’. As per information available online, this film was launched in 1993, and its music was released in 1995. However, production delays and other issues caused the film to be released only in 2000. I have not seen this film and I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

Once again thanking Atul ji and all other members of this blog and wishing all the best in the future, let us enjoy this song.

Blog Day : 3570 Post No. : 14307

Hullo to all in Atuldom

My post today (27 april 2018) should be read after reading what our dear Rajaji wrote last year in this post of his. In there he has poured a lot of love for the handsome actor- producer- (and lastly) a politician. He has spoken for all the fans of Vinod Khanna.

It is simply unbelievable that a year has passed since this most charming actor passed away. I remember how shocked I was on reading the news on our WhatsApp group that day. The news must have broken on the news channels about noon, around the time when Vividh Bharati – All India Radio’s commercial channel- starts their farmaishie filmy gaane etc. I used to have this habit of listening to this programme, with headphones on, as I commute around (I have stopped it since). Now that day, I was most happy with the content of the programme as every single song was from a Vinod Khanna movie and all of which I simply love. It occurred to me that those songs were being played as a tribute to the departed artist, only when I read all the WA messages on returning home. It was very very saddening. But then life is like that, and apparently Vinod was ill for sometime before his death. And as Rajaji has mentioned in his post last year, there were photographs being shared on social media of a rather sick Vinod, but I always thought that must be a look for some forthcoming movie. But that was not how it was to be.

I cannot forget the look on his face when he is listening to the recorded message from his wife. And then the pain on discovering that his wife has been unfaithful- in Gulzar’s song less wonder “Achanak”. Can remember how he smartly outwits Jeetendra’s father as villain in “Anokhi Ada”. Thinking of him singing “nainon mein darpan hain darpan mein koi dekoon jise subaha shaam” with Saira Banu on a cycle in “Aarop”.

After having made his debut in 1968 through Sunil Dutt’s “Man Ka Meet” and doing roles of secondary characters as Manoj Kumar’s friend in “Purab Aur Paschim”; Shammi Kapoor’s younger brother who loses track of ‘good and bad’ in “Jaan Pehchaan”; an inspector out to nab the smuggler (Rajesh Khanna) in “Sachha Jhootha”; and a few villainous characters we saw him as a confused educated unemployed man in “Mere Apne” which was followed by “Achanak” and a small blink and miss role in “Parichay”- all of which were made by Gulzar. No mention of Vinod Khanna is complete without thinking of the “Jabbar Singh” he played in “Mera Gaon Mera Desh”- he was unforgettable, he is unforgettable, we can’t forget him.

How can we forget him- when the radio plays “priye praneshwari” or “koi hota jisko apna” or “bambai se aaya mera dost” or “ruk jaana nahin tu kahi haarke” or “darbaar mein uparwaale ke” or “bhaagi re bhaagi re brijbala kanha ne pakda rang dala” or “lagi aaj saawan ki phir who jagi hai” and all the other famous and not so famous songs featuring him.

Though his pairing with Amitabh was always enjoyed we cannot forget that he paired well with Feroz Khan, Shatrughan Sinha, Vinod Mehra, Rajesh Khanna, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Sunil Dutt etc. As I was writing this post I wondered if he has never worked with Sanjeev Kumar and I saw that among yesterday’s posts is a song from “Chowkidaar” which had Sanjeev Kumar and VK is also there. The later year heroes Govinda, Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan etc also co-starred with him playing an elder brother or father figure to them. He has done more than two movies each with most of the heroines of his era; be it Leena Chandavarkar, Bharati, Saira Banu, Zeenat Aman, Hema Malini, Rakhee, Parveen Babi, Reena Roy, Shaban Azmi, Rekha, Yogita Bali etc. and in his second innings Dimple Kapadia, Meenakshi, Madhuri, Madhavi, Jaya Prada, Sridevi etc. God, he had a good career and we were well entertained by him.

“Kudrat” was one of the movies where he co-starred Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini. It also had Raaj Kumar and Priya Rajvansh in important roles. It was directed by Chetan Anand and had rebirth as its theme. It had great songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Qateel Shifai and R D Burman was the music director. The song with this post is written by Majrooh and sung by Suresh Wadkar and Asha Bhonsle. It is a typical pahadi folk song performed by local dancers and as is the norm in Indian films the stars in the audience are drawn in to dance and shake a hip or leg with the performers. So, we can see Vinod Khanna starting the dance and trying to drag Hema Malini into it. This is followed by Aruna Irani (who plays the missing link between the two births of the main characters) Rajesh Khanna and Priya joining in. The song is meant to transport Hema into memories of her past birth and give her hints of link between Madho and Paro, Vinod catches Hema staring at Rajesh Khanna. And from here the story moves towards what the purpose of the movie is – getting justice for Madho and Paro (Rajesh and Hema) for the crime done to them by Raaj Kumar, father of Priya in this movie.

Thinking of the handsome Vinod Khanna today.

“Dozakh”(1987) was produced by Jaswant Parekh and directed by Suhas Khadke. This movie had Suhas Khandke, Pallavi Bhatt, Anupam Kher, Asha Lata, Asit Sen etc in it.

This movie had six songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Dozakh”(1986) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal and Suresh Wadkar. Mahendra Delahwi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ganesh.

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. 🙂

“Naiyya”(1979) was directed by Prashant Nanda for Chanda Pictures, Bombay. I became aware of this fact when I discussed the earlier songs from this movie. Initially I was under the impression that this movie was a Rajshree Productions movie and once again I reverted back to the same impression with passage of time 🙂

The movie had Zarina Wahab, Prashant Nanda (new discovery for Hindi movies), Baldev Khosa, Dinesh Thakur, Leela Mishra, Mohammad Mohsin (another new discovery), Jageerdaar, Dinesh Hingoo, Nandlal Sharma, c S Dubey, Shail Chaturvedi, Shivraj, Amrish Puri, Pardesi, Om Tripathi, Shankar Bhake, Manmauji, Rooplekha etc, along with guest appearances by Sulochana, Shubha Khote and Jayshree T.

The movie had five songs in it. Three of them have been covered in the past. Here is the fourth song from “Naiyya”(1979) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Yesudas and Suresh Wadkar. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director. The song is picturised on Prashant Nanda, Baldev Khosa (I hope I have identified him correctly) and Zarina Wahab.


Song-Tera kuchh khoya ho…Geeta raani Geeta raani hans de zara (Naiyya)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Suresh Wadkar, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

tera kuchh khoya ho to dhoondh den
kabhi dil toota ho to jod den

geeta raani geeta raani

tera kuchh khoya ho to dhoondh den
kabhi dil toota ho to jod den
dil na dukha aa
maan bhi jaa aa
geeta raani geeta raani

saawan ne aawan ka nyota
bheja hai manbhaawan ko

tere roop ke chandan ko
hai raam sa aa sajan tera aa
geeta raani geeta raani

‘Hero’(1983) was produced and directed by Subhash Ghai for Mukta Arts Limited, Bombay. Introducing newcomer pairs in lead roles was the in thing those day. It had started with ‘Bobby’(1973), which was followed by ‘Love Story’(1980), ‘Rocky’(1981) and then ‘Betaab’(1983).

A very Happy Holi to 9th holi today (13 march 2017) on this blog. And every holi we have Atul posting songs for the occasion. We have approximately 50 songs to celebrate holi. So does that mean we are out of songs? No, not at all! How can that happen? As long as we have Hindi Movies and as long as they have songs in them we can be sure of at least one holi song a year if not more. Oh, I seem to be echoing Sudhirji’s thoughts from his 2015’s holi post. But that is the truth of the matter. Holi will never go out of fashion in Bollywood. The only thing that might change is that people will request others to have dry holi this year as many parts of the country are facing drought conditions. And still others will opt for using organic colours that are less harmful to the skin etc. But what about the general public of the country who cannot afford the expensive organic stuff they will stick to the traditional gulal in various hues.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

A very belated Happy Diwali to all those who I missed to wish. Hope it was sweet and well lit for all. We are into the new Samvat and here is the first birthday.

We all know this birthday boy as a winner of 14 filmfare awards. He has a significant fan following in Asia and among the Indian Diasporas across the globe. He is one who dared to pick villainous roles early on in his career –something like say Vinod Khanna or Shatrughan Sinha of the previous generation. He is the pet of the film maker who is considered the king of romantic films in the current era. His paternal grandfather was a Pathan and the family moved to India post 1948. He grew up in Delhi and was educated from schools and colleges there but his road to fame and fortune began when he joined the Theatre Action Group and was mentored by Barry John. Oh yes I am speaking of Badshah alias Raj (naam toh suna hoga?) alias Rahul alias Shahrukh Kkkkhan –like the way he said KKKKiran in one of his early movies.

There are many movies which come and disappear becoming forgotten over time. It is such movies that take time to make their debuts on our blog. This movie “Kaun Hai Woh?” (1983) is one such movie. Its songs are not available on YouTube. Its artists are no longer in the limelight and the movies songs lie in the dust with some collectors.
