Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 10
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Welcome all to this post which again is coming after a ‘long gap’ in this series. Well, I hope to conclude this series too at the earliest possible 🙂 .

In this tenth episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna – the Phenomenon’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies in the year 1983. This was the year of Rajesh Khanna. He was back on the top with a bang. I don’t know if I should say this that he was reinstated as the ‘King of Bollywood’ once again.

The successes of the movies ‘Avtaar’, ‘Sautan’, and to an extent of the movie ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’ brought Kaka back into the limelight again. Another movie ‘Nishaan’ starring Kaka which was also released during this year 1983 also performed well at the box-office. Though he had delivered some versatile performances and kept doing different roles during the period 1975 to 1978 he was still far away from that level of success which he had tasted before.

He finally got a big boost in 1983 after his continued good performances, critically acclaimed performances and some commercially hit performances in the previous years i.e. from 1979 to 1982. Hit movies like ‘Amardeep’ (1979), ’Thodisi Bewafaai’ (1980); critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose’ (1980), ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980); successful movies like ‘Bandish’ in 1980; and then multi-starrer hits like ‘Qudrat’ in 1981, and ‘Raajput’, ‘Ashaanti’, and ‘Dharam Kaanta’ in 1982 had finally paid off. With two back-to-back hits – ‘Avtaar’ and ‘Sautan’, where Kaka was the main lead and a semi-hit like ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’, brought a new life to Kaka’s filmi career or his ‘second innings’ as it is generally said.

In the year 1983 the following five movies of Rajesh Khanna were released. Although the movie ‘Baabu’ was passed by Censor Board in 1983, I remember it was released in theaters in 1985. Knowledgeable readers can throw more light on this.

03 Baabu^ A.C. Trilokchander 01.11.1983
04 Nishaan Surendra Mohan 06.01.1983
05 Sautan Sawan Kumar 24.05.1983

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Avtaar’. And since this year 1983 was a special year for Kaka, I would like to present more posts covering songs from this year. Let us see how it works.

‘Avtaar’ made its debut on the blog on 27.08.2012 with this song “Ho Ooperwaale Tera Jawaab Nahin” and I would like to quote below what Atul ji had written about this movie of Rajesh Khanna.

“Avtaar” (1983) was a movie of Rajesh Khanna during the second innings of his acting career when he was no longer a superstar. The movies in which Rajesh Khanna acted during this phase won critical acclaim though even if Rajesh Khanna came nowhere close to regaining his lost crown.

 

‘Avtaar’ was produced and directed by Mohan Kumar for his home productions Emkay Enterprises. It had Rajesh Khanna, Shabana Azmi, Sachin, AK Hangal, Sujit Kumar, Rajni Sharma, Madhu Malini, Yunus Parvez, Shashi Puri, Gulshan Grover, Pichoo Kapoor, Ranjan Grewal, Preeti Sapru and others. Madan Puri had a guest appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Mohan Kumar and Mushtaq Jalili. Screenplay of this movies was written by Mohan Kumar and dialogues were written by Mushtaq Jalili. Editing of this movie was done by Pratap Bhatt. It was passed by Censor Board on 27.01.1983. HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) mentions in the foot note of this movie page that this film was re-certified with English sub-titles by Censor Board on 06.05.1983.

The movie has five songs (including one two-part song) penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. So far two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. This is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Suresh Wadkar, Alka Yagnik, and Mahendra Kapoor. This song is picturized on Shashi Puri-Preeti Sapru, Gulshan Grover-Rajni Sharma. Both couples are lip syncing the voices of Suresh Wadkar and Alka Yagnik. Mahendra Kapoor’s voice is used for background score where we can see Rajesh Khanna working hard in his own garage and preparing himself for a greater challenge.

In the movie this song happens when Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi have left their home as their sons have betrayed them. Sachin (Sewak) accompanies them and arranges a temporary shelter for them. Not only this, after listening the conversation between his master and bibi ji he understands what his master needs. He then donates his blood and from the money for the blood, he buys aujaar (tools) for his master so that he can start his own garage. Rajesh Khanna has an uphill task from here to turn the fortunes while his sons are enjoying with their friends. That is where this song takes place, and we have some meaningful lyrics to listen.

That was all around forty years back now.

And if we go back fifty years i.e. to the year 1973 we have the following movies of Rajesh Khanna released in that year.

Blog Day :

5083 Post No. : 17007

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe’ (1984).

One song from this movie has been posted on the blog by our Respected Sadanand ji, – “Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye“. In his write up Sadanand ji has mentioned Indian cricket and Bollywood both enjoy enormous popularity among Indians”. Yes! Very rightly said by him and this has the case been with most of our country-men and particularly people like me who have grown up in the ‘seventies’. We loved movies and cricket at the same level and they have been an integral part of our ‘life’s journey’.

Today I will add a little to the nostalgia about cricket, a song from a movie where a cricketer was the main lead and memories of the month of June. As I had mentioned earlier ‘June’ has been special month for me for many reasons. It has birth anniversaries and other anniversaries of closed ones and many other important things of my personal journey.

Other than the personal anniversaries we have anniversaries related to cricket 😊, anniversary of my passing out board exam in June 1983 😊, and anniversaries of many movies and memories of many movies released in 1983. We have birth anniversary and remembrance days of many artists etc.

1983 had been a special year for me and particularly the summer of 1983. Every summer brings back many memories of the 1983 summer to me. India won its first Cricket World Cup in June 1983. The movie ‘83’ which was released in December 2021 revived the thrill and nostalgia of the 1983 cricket world cup. I watched this movie twice on its First day (i.e. first Friday) and again on ‘second Friday’ in theater. Recently again I watched this movie on OTT as I was alone at home 😊.

In this article I am not going to discuss the ‘Summer of 1983’ or ‘June of 1983’ anymore. But I will be taking you back to the summer of 1982. Indian cricket team was on tour to England in that summer of 1982.

Yes, I still remember how I jumped out of my bed, when I was listening to the commentary of radio of the second test of India vs England Test match that was played from June 24 to 28 at Manchester during India’s tour of England in 1982. It was 27th of June (since 1994 this day become very special day of my life, and yes, we have Pancham’s birthday on the same day too  😊).

27th June, 1982 was the fourth day of this test and the time in India then must have been around 10 or 10:30 pm (I do not remember it exactly now). I was lying down on bed and listening to the commentary of this match on radio. And I jumped from my bed and sat on my toes in half standing position when the commentator was giving a ball by ball commentary of the over England’s bowler Bob Willis (who was also the captain of England). The batsman on strike was India’s Sandeep Patil. The first ball was hit for a four and then followed four after four…

This was the famous ‘six fours of Sandeep Patil in an over…

Sandeep Patil made his test debut in 1980 and played his last ODI in 1986. He was always in news for his ‘destructive batting’ and ‘other than cricket’ activities. From cricket I always remember his 174 against Australia, then the ‘world cup’, and when he was specially called for a test with Pakistan at Nagpur (Oct’1983) where he landed by a special ‘air-craft’ provided Maharashtra Government.

In between his cricket career he had also done a movie. Today we are going to listen to a song from this movie. Though this movie was not a success it was in news and especially the chemistry between Sandeep Patil and the heroine of the movie Debashree Roy was a talk among our senior friends at that time. I have not watched this movie.

‘Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe’ was directed by Vijay Singh for VS Productions, Bombay. Vijay Singh not only directed this movie, but he was also the producer of this movie and had written dialogues of this movie and had done the editing of this movie too. The star cast of the movie has Poonam Dhillon, Sandeep Patil, Debashree Roy, Ram Sethi, Iftekhar, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo, Narendra Nath, Birbal, Jugnu, Raj Anand, Chunnu Mehra, Vinay Mandke, Indrajeet Ahluwalia, and others. Sayyad Kirmani, Barrister Sheshrao Wankhede, Prabhu Desai, Vishwas Raut, Ashok Mankad, and Pinki had made a friendly appearance in this movie. Shakti Kapoor had made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.09.1984.

The movie has seven songs written by two songwriters – Dev Kohli (five songs) and Ravindra Peepat (two songs). Music for this movie was composed by Vijay Singh himself. So, he had donned the ‘hats’ of Producer-Director-Editor-Dialogue writer and Music Director of this movie). Here is the list of songs of this movie.

S.No. Song title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Welcome To The Orkay Nite … Pehli Nazar Mein Pyaar Huaa Dev Kohli Suniti Devi, Vinay Mandke, Aenet, chorus
02 Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe Zameen Aasmaan Ye Ravindra Peepat Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar
03 Aa Ja Mere Sanam, Baithhe Hain Raahon Mein Palken Bichha Ke Ravindra Peepat Lata Mangeshkar
04 Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
05 Geet Mere Honthhon Ko De Gaya Koi Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
06 Is Dafaa Ham Na Ghataaon Ki Tarah Chhaayenge Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
07 Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye Dev Kohli Ashok Khare

HFGK mentions the following names in the singer’s list of this movie i.e. Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar, Suniti Devi, Ashok Khare, Vinay Mandke, and Vijay Singh. Today’s song is duet song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Suresh Wadkar and on screen it is lip synced by Poonam Dhillon and Sandeep Patil.

Lyrics for the today’s songs are by Ravindra Peepat and music is composed by Vijay Singh.

As Sadanandji has mentioned in his post “The only plus point in the movie, if I may say so, is its music”. This movie has nice songs and I like all the songs of this movie except the songs listed at serial no. 1 in the above table which I think I had not listened or I do not remember it. Incidentally the first song from this movie was also posted in the month of June on 18.06.2016 :).

Let us enjoy the today’s song now…

Blog Day :

5070 Post No. : 16991

In one of my earlier articles here, I had mentioned that the month of June is one of my most favorite months. There are several important days in this month and different anniversaries of our close ones too (including me 🙂 ).

Today 5th June is one such important day. It is the ‘World Environment Day’ today.

Here again I will repeat what I have mentioned in my post for the short song “Ye Hanste Huye Phool, Ye Mehka Hua Gulshan”  from film ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) written for ‘Environment Day – 2017’ and posted on the blog on 08.06.2017 (instead of 05.06.2017).

I am approaching today’s post in a different manner. Instead of going into the details of the environmental agencies, their history and purpose, the significant environmental issues being faced by humanity on this planet, etc. I am thinking of our Hindi films and their music. The nature is so intimately connected herein. We cannot imagine our Hindi Film Music without ‘connecting with nature.

 Well, for today I would like to make a little correction in the above lines. That year 2017 the theme of the ‘WED (World Environment Day) was ‘Connecting with Nature’ and I had tried to connect the same with the songs, lyrics and music of our Hindi movies.

This year ‘2022’ the theme of the ‘WED’ is “Only One Earth – Living Sustainably in Harmony with Nature”. So I would like to add here that I am thinking of those Hindi Films which carried a ‘message’ related to environment and our planet ‘the earth’. And since this is the blog of songs we need a song to connect this celebration today.

The movie of today ‘Aasmaan Se Gira’ (1991) has a message for all of us in its climax. Today’s song, though doesn’t exactly match the theme of today, it connects to the ‘philosophy of life’ and alerts us that ultimately our destination is ‘one’ and we have leave everything here. So let us leave everything in a good shape, better prospects, and in compassion to the humanity and nature.  Leave the ‘shad-ripus’ (kaam, krodh, lobh, moh, mad, matsar) to attain ‘moksh’. I have listened and watch this song several times and it is an enlightening song woven in comical situation in the movie. The movie also needs to be watched even though it’s a movie for children.

In today’s post I am not going into the details of this movie which I had mentioned in my earlier article with other song of this movie earlier on the blog – “Ghar Jaana Hai Mujhe, Ghar Jaana Hai“. A brief about this movie is given below.

A young prince is being trained for a time when he will grow up to become king. The lonely boy is frustrated at being kept secluded while being taught the art of statesmanship by great scholars. One day while frustrated he is crying for help ‘a strange little man’ arrives in his room.

This ‘little man’ is from another planet. His name is Trishanku. Trishanku was travelling to attend the wedding of his friend, but since the ‘rays of sorrow’ from the little prince caught him on the way he lands there to help the little prince.

The prince and Trishanku exchange views about their own worlds. Trishankhu is homesick and wishes to return back to his planet. He has his three friends from his planet who had earlier lost their way after coming to earth and then stayed back on the planet earth thereafter. Each one of the three knows the ‘part of the mantra’ that will allow Trishanku to go back to his home planet.

The two-escape trying to find ways for Trishankhu to go back. On their journey they develop a deep bonding and it is hard for Trishankhu to let go.

When Trishanku meets each of his three friends, each one gives him one part of the mantra which is presented in the form of a song and that is our song for today. It is picturised in three parts on Anil Kapoor, Sheeba, Sridevi, and Anupam Kher. The forth part of the song is picturised on Trishanku i.e. Raghuveer Yadav who is singing it at the ‘Jantar Mantar’ from where he is supposed to find his way to his planet after singing the ‘mantras’. In all the four parts of the song the little prince i.e. Master Abhishek is present in the picturisation of this song.

Finally Trishanku lands on his planet and he enters the ‘darbaar’ of his master (God of Outer Planet) i.e. ‘Baadshaah-e-Kahkashaan’ played by Amjad Khan. And, there we have the following conversation between ‘Baadshaah-e-Kahkashaan’ and Trishanku, where the master has a message for all on this ‘Planet – The Earth’.

Trishanku – takai t takai t takai t … main aa gaya ‘baadshaah-e-kahkashaan’,
                      andar aane ki ijaazat hai?

Baadshaah – aao … der lagaa di tumne, chuk gaye shaadi, yaad karte rahe sab

Trishanku – main kya karta, ve tinon itni door door thhe ek yahaan, doosra
                      wahaan , teesra jaane kahaan, badi mushqil huyi

Baadshaah – kya dekha tinon ne, pataa nahin … nahin laute… manaa kiya maine,
                       nahin maane
                       moorkh
                       bewaqoof
                       prithvi ke log
                      nahin samajhte
                      itni achchhi prithvi achaanak nahin bani… mehnat lagi.. koshish..
                      tum to thhe… yaad hain?

Trishanku –  haan yaad hain

Baadshaah – barbaad kar diya prithvi ko… tahas nahas… jung golaa barood
                         hathiyaar ladaayi … ped tod todkar nangaa kar diya prithvi ko
                         paani mein zehar … hawaa mein zehar …
                         mutthibhar log, hukumat karte karodon par
                         anaaj hain, bhookhe rehte hain laakhon… anaaj bechkar hathiyaar
                         kharidte hain
                         moorkh!  moorkh!!  moorkh!!!

Trishanku        theek kehte hain …lekin sabhi wahaan aise nahin hai …ek bachchaa hai
                            kautuk …main uski madad karna chaahtaa hoon

Baadshaah        nahin, nahin, nahin, hamaara kaanoon hai, rishta mat banana
                             prithvi ke logon ke saath… madad mat karna un murkhon ki
                             koshish ki thhi pehle kabhi, gayi bekaar… bhool jaao…bhool jaao o

 Trishanku –      theek hai prithviwaale dusht hain, lobhi hain, moorkh hain …ek doosre ka khoon choosnewaale hain, ek jhande ke pichhe aapas mein lad mar jaate hain, anaaj bechkar hathiyaar kharidte hain,  lekin sabhi aise nahin hain..kautuk jaise log bhi hai wahaan, usne yahaan aane mein meri madad ki … main bhi uski madad karna chaahta haoon…

(After this Trishanku tells Baadshaah how good and friendly Kautuk is and what consequences he may be facing after being alone now.)

Kautuk wants to play , wants to fly kite, wants to eat mango.. but Maasheela is such a cruel queen who has prohibited everything for Kautuk and he cannot even go out of his palace… saying this Trishanku breaks into tears and Baadshaah surprisingly asks him what is flowing from his eyes and why. Trishanku explains him that this is the ‘gift’ he got from the ‘people of prithvi’.

Baadshaah orders to bring Maasheela to his darbaar. And when Maasheela (Kalpana Aiyer) threatens Baadshaah of his life, the Baadshaah wants to kill her but Kautuk intervene and request Baadshaah to forgive her and he begs him for her life. 

Trishanku – dekha kitne zulm kiye hain is aurat ne is par, phir bhi ye uske praanon ki bheekh maang rahaa hai…ise kehte hain kshamaa, prem, kautuk jaise aur bhi log hain prithvi par, jab tak aise log hain hamen prithvi se naa-umeed nahin hona chahiye

(Maasheela hugs kautuk and is emotional. She asks kautuk to forgive her misdeeds. She showers her love on kautuk.)

This incident brings tears to the Baadshaah and he forgives all and with the following message…

jaao kautuk jaao… jab tak tum jaise log prithvi par rahenge …prithvi rahegi
jaao aur apne duniya ke logon ko samjhaa do…
aapsi prem khatm ho jaayega kuchh nahin bachega sab kuchh khatm ho jaayegaa

Kautuk returns to prithvi after taking a promise from Trishanku to visit him on his birthday every year.

This heart-warming film by popular TV and film director Pankaj Parashar stars a galaxy of Bollywood stars in guest appearances including Sridevi, Amjad Khan, Anil Kapoor and Anupam Kher.

Before we enjoy today’s entertaining song I just wish that may there be many such movies and may such songs which I can present for occasions like today. We need to have more movies to bring the awareness on issues of environment and pollution.

Yesterday, it was there in the news that people are throwing dead animals into canals… Many must have seen the dumping sites where every day garbage heap is dumped and which are slowly turning into big mountains …

And last but not the least … keep watching children’s movies in between … not necessary that all children’s movies are for children only. People can learn a lot from them.

Also I would like to request the film-makers that ‘meaningful movies’ on the issues around us can be made for adult audiences too and they should not limit this for the children only.

It is good to see that in recent years there have been movies coming on ‘environmental issues’ too. We will keep presenting songs from such movies in the future on the blog.

Blog Day :

4913 Post No. : 16733

There have been two excellent reviews of 83 film which was released recently on 24 December 2021. As such there is not much to add to the review per se. But then the event itself is engraved in golden moments and letters in the annals of sporting history of our country. Well, there always was hockey in which we ruled the roost in those days. People had little doubts in their minds on the continued dominance of West Indies which had already won the first as well as the second world cup in 1975 and 79 respectively. Dark horses India created history by upsetting West Indies in the finals by successfully defending a modest score of 183 runs, a record which stands tall to this day.

Apart from songs and films, railways and cricket (of bygone era) remain amongst the favourite topics on the blog. So, when Avinash ji posted his euphoric post on having watched the film 83 first day first show, there was lot of buzz on our WhatsApp group and its was rather decided that whosoever watches the film should make attempts to write a post on the experiences of not only the film or the event but their own expectations, memories etc.

Well, I am here with my post and would request whatapp group members to ignore reading the next one-line para for obvious reasons and the cliché for which I have become rather infamous. 🙂

I was all but 9 in 1983, having born in Feb’74.

Thus, I knew about India having won the 1983-world cup only a few years later. [Sachin Tendulkar at 10 in the movie is seen dancing in the streets (on someone’s shoulders)]. As such, this post of mine could be some sort of damp squib for keen readers. To add to the misery of writing this post, I am not an avid follower of cricket or for that matter any sport. But, whenever India plays, I always follow up with keen interest. For the said reasons, I am yet to see a full IPL match and can say with enough conviction that I will never ever watch such a match. Further, I have almost completely stopped watching television and my TV table is now occupied by various indoor plants, a new hoppy which I have recently cultivated. Above the TV, creepers such as money plants and broken heart are scaling up the wall to reach the slab. 🙂

However, I have been following follow-up stories of 1983 world cup with all interests. I could completely understand what Kapil Dev’s unbeaten innings of 175 meant for the team, tournament and our country as a whole. With the advent of internet, I have visited web sites pertaining to cricket world cup several times and tried the understand the circumstances under which India went on to upset the two-time defending champions. A perfect example of dark horses turning out to be derby winners. A day after the match, London Times, a British newspaper apparently had the headline “Kapil’s men turn world upside down” on its front page.

With whatever little I have watched on cricket, Kris Srikkanth has been one of my favourite cricketers. In my opinion, he remains one of the few players who played mainly for the crowds. He successfully faced some of the most lethal fast bowlers of different teams.

I remember reading an article in India Today magazine wherein there was a beautiful article entirely dedicated to him. I had been searching for this article published in March 1987 all these years and with renewed interest, I happened to get hold of it in the magazines’ s archives articles. I would recommend readers to spare time to read the article. There have been many a great Indian cricket player over the years. But, the style, controlled aggression, antics on field etc, no one can match the peerless Kris Srikkanth.

Ball racing to the boundary like a bullet was the hallmark of his batting. For every ball that he faced it was always the viewers and not Kris Srikkanth who were afraid that the ball would end up disturbing the furniture behind. He long walks away from the crease towards square-leg umpire, frequent twisting of his nose, closing of his eyes in a flutter, the cursory glance at the skies as if he was reporting to someone after each ball, the meticulous and fast curling of the bat, his legs positioned wide apart on the crease while batting etc. will remain etched in active memories of avid lovers of the game.

Coming back to 1983, but remaining with Kris Srikkanth and his batting style, I am always happy of the fact that with a regal 38 he was the highest scorer of the finals in spite of a few towering batsmen on the opposite camp. Viv Richards scored 33 and that was the second highest individual score in the final.

With all such fond memories, the viewing of the film was for me like travelling back in a time machine. My wife along with my daughter studying II PU are now placed at D.K. Friday 24, the release date of the film, they ended up at U.K. on an unexpected, unplanned and a totally unscheduled visit. My wife has played this pleasant prank on me a couple of times and so even though it was quite surprising, it took just a nano second for me to realise that, yes, they were here for a visit.

On Saturday, 25 Dec, my daughter started this slow and silent campaign that we ought to watch a movie in the only (non-ac) theatre in this town. I do not even bother to follow up which movie plays as I do not go to theatres often. But in this case and to my inner delight it was 83 of all the films that was being screened on that day. And seeing that my daughter was killing time brooding and surfing net for tickets, story etc. I decided that the movie had to be watched anyhow. And so, I saw the film along with my daughter.

Watching films in movie theatres with my wife needs a special mention here. I was placed in Mumbai when I got married in 2003. (Yes, in 3 years, I will be slaying the seven-year itch for the third consecutive time)  🙂

Instead of watching some junk Hindi or Hollywood movie, I thought I would begin my married-life-film-watching-experiences-with-spouse by watching a scientific documentary in the newly opened world’s largest IMAX dome theatre at Bhakti Park, Wadala. My Monorail site was hardly half a km away from the theatre though my residence was far away.

I later realised that my excitement of watching a documentary in a dome theatre was wholly a one-way traffic. Having a keen interest in astronomy, I got rivetted to the documentary show on stars, planets and galaxies. Being a dome theatre, the seats were obviously push back as well as quite reclining on which my wife comfortably dozed off for the entire show. On completion of the show of which I was totally absorbed in, I asked my wife if she had enjoyed the show. She had a brutal reply that she had dozed off from the word go. I realised that we both were travelling in the vastness of space while the documentary was being screened. The only difference was that I had my eyes wide open.  🙂

Thus, being the experience (there were a few more), my wife decided to stay put at home for some house-hold chores and I accompanied my daughter for the 83 show.
The description of the movie has been amply presented in the two posts posted and will be elaborated more when others write in. And so, I will have limited non-chronological bullet-wise observations on the film.

• The film aptly starts with the now legendary catch taken by Kapil Dev dismissing a batsman who could have easily denied India the Cup. Viv Richards. As the ball tends to safely fall into the hands of Kapil Dev, the titles begin, and the movie starts.

• Ranveer Singh has gotten into the skin of the character he plays that of captain Kapil Dev himself. Many a times, his dialogue delivery is simply impeccable. Hats off to him for his efforts in portraying the role with such similarity.

• Kris Srikkanth remains what he has been to the team during their hey days and during the various film promos and stories told on TV earlier too, a complete entertainer.

• The film has tried to keep the aura of those days alive by displaying the runs scored, nature of batsman getting out etc. I only wish, they had more such displays and retained them for a bit longer time than shown in the movie.

• The mood of the nation, prior, during and after the tournament has been captured well.

• The unbeaten knock of 175 by Kapil Dev against Zimbabwe in a do or die match as well as that of the tournament should have been covered in more detail especially since the actual recording and telecast never happened.

• The rotating of the antenna by Indian public with TV sets for better reception brought back fond memories.  🙂

• The premonition of players and other officials remaining still in their positions in the pavilion when the batsman was in good flow is to be seen to be believed and appreciated.

• Kapil Dev pep talk in the dressing room should have been more elaborate and frequent even if they were in Hindi. It has been shown as if he hardly spoke which I feel could not have been the case.

• Kapil Dev’s encouragement talk to his players during the innings break that West Indies team have to still make the “paltry” 183 runs and we will not allow them to achieve it easily is quite emotional and superb.

• PR Man Singh, the Indian manager who accompanied the team to the tournament has been played quite well by Pankaj Tripathi of Mirzapur TV series fame. Given the time space he occupies in the film, Pankaj Tripathi had done full justice to the role. I understand he went to stay with the real Man Singh for a few days in Hyderabad to prepare himself for the role. Much appreciated.

• Wamiqa Gabbi plays Madan Lal’s wife. Why am I mentioning this? I really donno.  🙂  So, (Don’t) keep guessing.

The detailed wiki page of the film has a soundtrack length of about 54 minutes. For obvious reasons, there is no playback as far as songs are concerned. For many in this blog self included the names of present lyricists, singers, composers etc. are all Greek and Latin. Our Avinash ji offered me to send lyrics of any song that I could pick up in the film. That indeed would have made my task a lot easier and I thank him for the outreach.

However, surfing the net whilst writing the post, I came across a very apt song for the occasion. On 17 August 1983 Lata Mangeshkar apparently performed live in a concert in Delhi to facilitate and also raise funds for the winning team on their spectacular victory in the Cricket World Cup tournament.

Joining her in chorus were Nitin Mukesh, Suresh Wadkar and even members of the team including the captain himself. The song for the special occasion was written by renowned lyricist Indeewar and the tune composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. It gives me immense pleasure to bring forth this special song to the readers of the blog.

I would also like to reproduce a snap taken during the Cup award ceremony with Indians occupying the entire ground at Lord’s. It amply showcased the euphoric mood of our nation on winning the world cup in 1983.

Lastly, I would like to end the post with my strong conviction that it’s never too late to honour Kapil Dev with the Bharat Ratna for what he has achieved for our country.
Jai Hind.

Hullo Atuldom

“Bond 303” (1985) was produced B.C. Devra and directed by Ravi Tandon. It was one of those movies that was in the making for a long time.

It was one of the three movies that had Jeetendra play a Spy- an Indian James Bond. His James Bond act began with his ‘mast bahaaron ka main aashiq’ in “Farz” (1967) continued with “Raksha” (1981) {in both these movies Jeetendra was Agent 116}. “Bond 303” was the third in that list.

This spy-movie had all the ingredients, a movie of this genre, required viz: a hero who looks handsome, can shake a leg, do action sequences with ease, and a bevy of lovely ladies. The lovely ladies of ‘Bond 303’ were headed Parveen Babi (in a double role), Jayshree T. and Helen. The list of supporting actors had Prem Chopra, Deven Verma, Tom Alter, Iftikhar, Satyen Kappu, Shreeram Lagoo, Dev Kumar, Yusuf Khan (a.k.a Zebisco of Amar Akbar Anthony).

The story was very simple:

There are terrorist attacks all over the world. Planes, trains, houses are blown to smithereens by unknown rockets! The one to call is India’s super agent Bond 303! When we first meet him he’s preoccupied with a dozen ladies and they all burst out in an intensive song-and-dance number! Bond 303 befriends a young smart scientist, played by the cool Parveen Babi and they start to gather information about the evil organization behind it all. But someone wants to stop them and sooner than you can say “curry” they are in gravy, oops they are in danger!

This Indian spy movie had five songs that were written by Gulshan Bawra and composed by R D Burman. Amit Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, R D Burman, were the playback singers used. Today’s song is in the voices of Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar and Kalyani Mitra.

(The blog’s statistics page shows a name Kalyani Das Mitra whose 11 songs are there on the blog. I would like some knowledgeable follower to confirm if Kalyani Mitra and Kalyani Das Mitra are one and the same. The title song of ‘Saawan Ko Aane do’, posted on the blog, has Kalyani Mitra listed as playback singer.)
The song is a typical ‘roothna-manana’ song where Jeetendra and Deven Verma are seen trying to appease Parveen Babi and her companion. (I think that is Meenakshi Thakur, but I am not sure. Prakashchandraji, please help) The ladies are of course putting on an act of being upset with the boys.
We are wishing Suresh Wadkar on his 66th birthday. And remembering Gulshan Bawra on his 12th anniversary.

Hullo Atuldom

“Ham Paanch” was a movie that released towards the end of 1980. It was presented by S K Films Enterprises and was produced by Surinder Kapoor having Boney Kapoor as executive producer. It was directed by Sattiraju Lakshmi Narayana known professionally as Bapu. It had a huge star cast headed by Sanjeev Kumar, Shabana Azmi, Deepti Naval, Amrish Puri, Naseeruddin Shah, Mithun Chakravarthy, Raj Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Uday Chandra, Aruna Irani, Dulari, Gita Siddharth, Roopesh Kumar, A K Hangal and Kanhaiyalal along with a whole set of known faces that constitute the firmament of Bollywood’s supporting actors.

The movie was a remake of the 1978 Kannada film “Paduvaaralli Pandavaru” which in itself was an adaptation of the Mahabharata. It had music by Laxmi-Pyare and songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Playback singers used were also the gems of Bollywood: – Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Shailendra Singh, Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, Anwar and Usha Uthup.

The movie had around 8 songs and made its debut on the blog with this song/ post by Sudhirji in 2016. Its been 5 years since that post and it is high time we have another song, unfortunately I have found links to audios of all the songs. But I have seen these songs and movies eons back and so I can tell that today’s song is being lip synced by Naseer, Mithun, Raj Babbar, Gulshan Grover and Uday Chandra (playback was by Amit Kumar, Shailendra Singh, Anwar and Suresh Wadkar). It has these youngsters protesting the tyrannical ways of the local Zamindar (Amrish Puri) who is helped in his mission of ruling the small region in rural India by his munim (Kanhaiyalal in one of his brilliant acts as Munim). The youngsters are guided in their job by Sanjeev Kumar playing Krishna who incidentally happens to be the brother of the Zamindar. I remember that the little sounds that are off-beat in the song (Amit Kumar’s voice) were lip synced by Mithun. How I wish we had the video, my personal recommendation would be to see the movie to enjoy the full essence of the songs and see actors like Gulshan Grover and Raj Babbar in ‘hatke’ (different) avatars.

We are having this song today to wish Raj Babbar on his 69th birthday; my initial reaction when I discovered his age was “Oh! Is he that old!!!” Next was almost all the actors who played ‘paandavs’ in “Ham Paanch” are in the same age bracket and this man, along with Gulshan Grover I suppose, are the youngest. Raj Babbar, who was born in Agra- UP, made his way to movies through NSD. He was first hated for the character that he played in B R Chopra’s ‘Insaaf Ka Tarazu’ in 1980 which released around the same time as ‘Ham Paanch’. Prior to that he had appeared in ‘Kissa Kursi kaa’.

He had around 7 releases in 1980 with ‘Aap Toh Aise Na the’; Insaaf Ka Tarazu’; ‘Sau Din Saas Ke’ and ‘Ham Paanch’ still being in public memory. He has appeared in a few Punjabi movies too. He is an actor who has played all kinds of characters- positive, negative and grey too. Sometime in the ’90s he switched to playing fatherly characters which could be negative too. He was a three-time member of the Lok Sabha and two-time member of the Rajya Sabha. His children Juhi and Arya from his wife Nadira and Prateik from Smita Patil (to whom he was married till her death due to complications in child-birth) are all actors. He has also produced a few movies.

If we had the video of the songs of this movie we would have also been able to the see the fantastic-large eyed-baritone voiced Amrish Puri in what he was excellent in that period. He would have turned 89 on 22nd June had he been around.

Here is wishing Raj Babbar health and happiness and thank you for entertaining us for close to 45 years.
Editor’s note:- With this song, Laxmikant Pyarelal now have 900 songs in the blog as music directors.

Rajesh Khanna – Birth Anniversary on 29/12/2020
—————————————————————-

Rajesh Khanna, the first superstar of hindi films, was born as Jatin Khanna on 29/12/1942 at Amritsar, Punjab. He is said to have had 17 solo hits from 1969 to 1971. This might be the only thing where Rajesh Khanna is ahead of superstar of the millennium, Amitabh Bachchan. He holds the record of 48 Platinum Jubilee hits and 26 Golden jubilee hits plus 22 silver jubilee hits. Certainly overtook the Silver Jubilee star Rajendra Kumar in a big way, who had 25 silver Jubilees in his time.

Not, really having lived through the era of ‘Rajesh Khanna phenomena’, makes the experience that much less effective, but I have read a lot about it in urdu film magazine “Shama”. I can also vouch for his versatility as actor, who was comfortable in any type of character. Even through the superstardom, the quality of real story based meaningful films was maintained. With his performance in films like Anand, Safar, Khamoshi, Bawarchi, Mere Jeewan saathi, Amar Prem, Aradhana, Bahaaron ke Sapne, Namak Haram etc. he proved his mettle as an versatile actor.

As a tribute on his 78th birth anniversary, I am presenting a song from ‘Disco Dancer’ 1982, where Rajesh Khanna had a special appearance. There are quite a few special appearances and guest appearances in his filmography, which shows he did remember the benefactors in his life and did return the favours if he could. He did many number of films with Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Manmohan Desai, J. Om Prakash and Shakti Samant.

The song is a multiple version song, composed by Bappi Lahiri and written by Anjaan. Suresh Wadkar is giving playback to Rajesh Khanna and Usha Mangeshkar is singing for a child artist playing the young Mithun Chakravorty. This happy version is a ‘road side tamasha’ category song as Rajesh Khanna and the child perform in the streets. The child artist could be Baby Pinky. The sad version is a climax situation song in the auditorium, where again Rajesh Khanna is trying to coax a grown up disco star Mithun Chakravorty to start singing. This is a solo version of Suresh Wadkar.

A Trivia about this film:
Rajesh Khanna agreed to make a small appearance in this film without charging a fee. He did so to return a favour he owed to the film’s producer, director B. Subhash. It was Subhash who had recommended Rajesh Khanna to the producers of “Thodi si Bewafaii” (1980) when they were considering Sanjeev Kumar for the film’s lead role. The success of “Thodi si Bewafaii” helped stabilise Khanna’s career at a time when his films were bombing one after the other.

These two songs from this film are so far posted in the blog:

Song Date of posting
Krishna dharti pe aa jaa tu 12 April 201
I am a Disco dancer 16 June 2018

A last memory about Rajesh Khanna is a poetry loving character who is seen carrying around and reading a small book of Urdu poetry in this song of ‘Anand’. The book could be Sahir Ludhianvi’s “Parchhaiyaan”, but I am not sure.

It is a great tribute to the love of the language if a Bengali set up film shows a book in urdu script. The Bengali itself being a rich language, literature wise and status wise. It could have been Rajesh Khanna’s own choice.

Today 13th December’2020 is the thirty-third ‘Remembrance Day’of actress Smita Patil(17.10.1955-13.12.1987).

The news of Smita Patil’s sudden demise this day 33 years at the age of just thirty-one came as a shock to millions of movie lovers like me. .

I was staying at Parli-Vaijnath (1985-88) at that time and I remember the next morning when I visited the ‘music recording center’ to meet my friend, he was very sad, and so were many other movie-goers and music lovers who were mourning Smita Patil’s sad demise.

As a tribute to her, here is a song from the ‘1981’ movie ‘Dil E Naadaan’.

“Dil E Naadaan-1981” was directed by C.V. Sridhar for ‘Sri Sanjay Chitra, Madras’. S.M. Sundaram was the executive producer of this movie. It had Rajesh Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Smita Patil, Jayaprada, Agha, Shivraj, Keshto Mukherjee, Jagdish Raj, Raj Mehra, Bina Pathak, Ashalata, Kavita Kiron, Vanita, Ashok, Umesh Sharma, Lalita Kumari etc. Om Prakash had done a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 11.12.1981 and maybe it was released in the theatres in early 1982, that is why many sources mentioned this movie as a movie of ‘1982’.

This movie had five songs including two songs which had two-parts. Lyrics for all the songs were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri.

Music for this movie was composed by Khayyam. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Suresh Wadkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is brief about this story as given on ‘Wikipedia’ and reproduced below;

Vikram (Shatrughan Sinha) and Anand (Rajesh Khanna) are best friends, brought up by their mom (Dina Pathak). Anand is an orphan who was adopted by the family as a child and he has never been given the impression that he was an outsider. Vikram and Anand are owner and manager respectively, of an advertising agency in Bombay. Both work for the same organization & love the same woman, Asha (Jaya Prada).
In the organization, Sheela (Smita Patil) works as a deputy to Anand and is in love with him, though Anand is unaware of this. Sheela continues to harbour love for Anand even after finding out he loves Asha, whom Sheela is friends with and also lives with. Vikram frequents a bus stop daily on his way to office, where he always sees Asha. He instantly decides to propose to her. Vikram discloses to Anand that he wants to marry a girl but does not reveal her name. Meanwhile, Vikram’s mother looks for suitable girls for their marriage and declares that she would marry both her sons together on the same day.

Sheela becomes confused as to whether she should continue to love Anand in spite of knowing that Anand and Asha love each other. One day, Sheela meets Vikram and as they talk, she says things that indicate she feels lonely and has lost her loved one to another. The next day, Sheela apologizes to Vikram and asks for a 10-day leave. She decides to go to her hometown to forget Anand. However, Asha joins her, as she learns that Anand is going there as well on a business trip. On a rainy day, Sheela is alone in the house when Anand arrives to meet Asha. He learns that Asha is attending a friend’s wedding, but as no train is available for returning, Anand is forced to stay the night. In the midnight, Anand starts feeling cold due to the weather, so he starts drinking. After a few drinks, he starts seeing Sheela as Asha. Despite knowing he is wrong …

(Here the first part of the song happens in the back ground and it is picturized on an actor and actress I am unable to identify with …)
Well, the movie moves forward and…
The next morning…
(reproduced from ‘Wikipedia’)

Anand realizes what has happened and writes a letter to Sheela, asking her to keep the incident a secret for life, as he wants to marry Asha only. However, Asha comes across the letter first and becomes aware of what happened between Sheela and Anand in her absence. She then decides that, as she respects her friendship with Sheela, she will sacrifice her love for Sheela and make Anand marry her instead.
The rest of the story shows what will happen to Vikram and Anand’s friendship after this incident. Will Anand marry Sheela? Will Sheela agree to marry Anand? Will Sheela make Asha marry Anand? Will Vikram marry Asha?

I will not reveal when the second part of the song (few lines only) happens (this part is also played in the background of Rajesh Khanna and Smita Patil seen on screen) in the movie to keep intact the interest of the readers who wish to watch this movie or have not watched this movie so far.

I remember I had watched this movie (I think in early 1983) and liked it then very much for the performances of Rajesh Khanna, Smita Patil, Jayaprada and Shatrughan Sinha.

The songs of this movie are also very nice and I had the good fortune to be able to share them here on the blog.
So far, following four songs from this movie have been covered on the blog;

Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma, one halfof the music director Laxmikant-Pyarelal was born on 03/09/1940. So that makes this 80th Birthday of the one of the most proficient, successful and talented musicians of the golden era of hindi film music. It is a well-known fact that both Laxmikant and Pyarelaljistarted their career as players of music instruments in the song recordings. If I am not mistaken, Pyarelalji, was a violinist.

‘Most proficient’ in the film industry’s history is the correct tag for Laxmikant-Pyarelal as they are the composers with the highest no. of songs composed which stands at 2901, in the blog’s stats page.

Laxmikant Pyarelal started as music directors in 1963, they hit the jackpot with Dost (1964). What followed is history, with awards, accolades and they never looked back. They are on record as loyalists of Rafi Sahab till his lifetime, who also sang maximum no of songs for them.

The achievements and success are too many, for me to start listing them. But their association with Anand Bakshi is the longest one, and must be the biggest such combo. I would guess the total songs composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal may have around 2000 written by Anand Bakshi.

On this birthday occasion , I am presenting the song from the film Krodhi (1981), by this very same team/combo of Lakshmikant-Pyarelal with AnandBakshi. The singers are Lata Mangeshkar and Suresh Wadkar. The was a multi-starrer film by Subhash Ghai. The starcast was Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Maushmi Chatterjee, Zeenat Aman, Shashi Kapoor etc and of course the love birds in the song, Sachin and Ranjeeta. The four songs of the film, which I remember are all nice one’s. But the movie is making a debut here on the blog with this song.

I have seen the movie, so can give a little outline of the story. Dharmendra is a gangster or smuggler, Zeenat Aman works for him and has a lot of regard and respect for him, as he has helped her a lot with the responsibilities. Zeenat Aman meets Shashi Kapoor (Police Inpector ?) at her sister’s wedding. Zeenat Aman and Shashi Kapoor get married, but Shashi Kapoor is not aware of the connection between Zeenat Aman and Dharmendra. The police is looking to arrest Dharmendra but he escapes and takes shelter in a village, where people mistake him for a godman or sadhu. Dharmendra adopts the disguise to escape the police. Sachin and Ranjita are the two characters who don’t make much difference to the story.

In the song, which Sachin and Ranjita are singing in the garden ‘Chameli baagh”, Dharmendra is looking on, and I think later on he helps them in some way or they are both murdered, by the villains. Dharmendra is also reminded of his late wife Maushmi Chatterjee while watching the song. Lata Mangeshkar is play backing for both Ranjita and Maushmi in the song.

The sort of word play which was a signature of Laxmikant Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi songs, is visible in this song.

Hullo Atuldom

7th August- remembrance day of Gulshan Kumar Mehta. It seems like just recently that my husband read the news of his demise from the morning papers and asked me who it was? I just rattled out a list of songs that were written by him and he was surprised that almost all the songs that I mentioned he knew he had heard but without knowing who had written it or other details about the song. Today is this Gulshan Kumar Mehta’s 11th anniversary. He is known popularly as Gulshan Bawra.

The name “Baawra” was goven to him by distributor Shantilal Dave who could not believe that the then 19 year old “Baawra” could write such meaningful lyrics. And this moniker “Baawra” stuck.

As I sat to write this post I found a link on youtube that gave me 45 minutes of Gulshan Bawra songs under the title “Best of Gulshan Bawra” and contained the following songs: tumhe-yaad-hogaa; Aapse humko bicchde huye ek zamaana beet gaya; Hamne jo dekhe sapne; Waada karle saajna tere bina main na rahoon; Le chal le chal mere jeewan saathhi; Jeewan ke har mod pe mil jaayenge hamsafar; Tumko mere dil ne pukaara hai; Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi.

Of the 10 songs in that list I didn’t know only two:- “dil sambhaale sambhalta nahin” and “beete hue din kuch aise hi hain”. But of course all the 10 are present on our blog. And 141 out of the 380 odd songs that he has written, are present in the blog. His first outing in movies was in the 1959 movie “Satta Bazaar” (1959) with the classic ‘tumhe yaad hoga kabhi hum mile the’. His career spanned almost four decades and we have a range of songs to entertain ys from the patriotic Aaj hai do october ka din and ‘mere desh ki dharti’; melodiously romantic ‘chaand ko kya maloom’ and funnily romantic ‘peenewaalon ko peene ka bahana chahiye’. His ‘dukki pe dukki ho’ is as popular as ‘dilbar mere kab tak mujhe’. And I remember having seen him on screen lip syncing ‘deewane hai deewano ko na darr chahiye’ and also enjoying the party in ‘Parivaar’ when Nanda sang ‘aaj hai do october ka din’. He was there on screen in Manoj Kumar directed ‘Upkaar’ as the halwai’s son. His songs have been put to music by Kalyanji Anandji, R D Burman, Shankar Jaikishan. He was awarded the best lyricist Filmfare award for “mere desh ki dharti” and “yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi” which also topped that years Binaca Geetmala.

Thinking of this lyricist on his anniversary with a song from the 1984 release “Andar Baahar”. 1984 was when I had discovered the new crop of good looking actors Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol etc. They looked good and danced/ acted reasonably well too. So I could request my dad to see this movie. He was also a fan of movies which were of the ‘masala’ genre and had some good songs for added pleasure and relaxation. I could never convince him to see any of the Arty movies, but that is another story.

“Andar Baahar” was a movie produced by Romu Sippy and directed by Raj N. Sippy. It had a cast of Jackie Shroff- Anil Kapoor- Parikshit Sahni- Anita Raaj- Danny. This was Moon Moon Sen’s Hindi debut (one of the reasons my dad agreed to come for the movie, he wanted to see Suchitra Sen’s daughter).

The movie had a very simple storyline:- A cop-n-crook story. The crooks led by Danny crack the safe of a bank, and one of them turns greedy and tries to shoot the others out of his way. The sound gets cop Ajay Sahni (Parikshat Sahni) to the spot and one of the team of crooks runs away with the loot. Danny escapes from prison and threatens the absconding Gulshan Grover of killing his sister if he doesn’t return the loot. Gulshan squeals to the cops and inspector Ajay and his friend Ravi Khanna (Jackie) reach the spot. Only this time, in the operations, inspector Ajay is fatally wounded and now inspector Ravi seeks vengeance. With the permission of the commissioner he brings the wounded crook Raja (Anil Kapoor), who is still in his custody, to help him track Shera (Danny) Gulshan etc and bring the movie to a close. In the process Ravi Khanna finds a friend in Raja who takes Ajay’s place in his life.

Now since there are friends in the movie it is mandatory to have a song where the heroes proclaim their love for each other. This is sung by Shailendra Singh and Suresh Wadkar. R D Burman is the music composer. The song has a stamp of RD all over it:- great opening piece and in between the mukhda and antara. We can also hear the harmonica (popularly called mouth organ) through the song.

Incidentally it also happens to be Suresh Wadkar’s 65th birthday. He has been active since 1977 – ‘Paheli’ and ‘Gaman’ (1978). His voice was different from the reigning voices of that time. He also is trained in classical music which is evident in “Saanjh Dhale Gagan Taley” and his numerous songs which need a clear voice at high pitch. We have 71 songs of his on the blog. We have a lot more songs out there for us to learn the range that he can sing in. For today we shall hear him here in this song and wish him a very Happy Birthday.

N.B.: There is a sad version to this song, video of which I am unable to locate.

tujhse yeh mera waada hai

ho ab toh hum kabhi
door na honge ji
apna aisa iraada hai
haan tere liye pyaare jaan haazir hai
tujh se yeh mera waada hai

ho ik dooje ka hum
sada baatenge gum
aaj khaale kasam yaara
arre humko toh yaari se matlab hai
ho humko toh yaari se matlab hai
yaar ho kaisa bhi
chaahe jhootha ya sahi
baat sach hai yahi yaara
arre humko toh yaari se matlab hai
arre humko toh yaari se matlab hai
