Today, 6th July, is the remembrance day of music director Sardul Kwaatra, who passed away this day in 2005. Four years ago, on this occasion, I have posted a detailed article on this ‘impressive and talented composer who failed to impress’ with the song “Aa Gaye Aa Gaye Aa Gaye”.

The strongest image that remains in the mind is that of the film director Sinha Saab, a bedraggled man in tattered garments, with ruffled grey hair and white beard, a leathery skin on face lined with wrinkles that appeared much before time – a young person who aged too rapidly for his years. With help of a walking stick, he climbs down from the shadows of the scaffolding where he has perched himself, watching the action on the floor below – the same floor where once, not too long ago, he was the ringmaster, and everyone bowed to him. Not anymore. Today, he is a ‘has been’, who lost his touch of Midas, and the same world that once clamored to him, has quickly forgotten and relegated him, literally, to the garbage heap.

With difficulty, he negotiates the narrow ladders that lead down from the scaffolding to the studio floor. Once there, he shuffles to the chair, his chair, in the days of glory; the chair with the word ‘Director’ written across its back. He sits. And then he is immobile, never to get up again, never to wake up.

When the crowd of workers return after lunch, everyone is shocked to see this grimy old man, sitting motionless in the director’s chair. Everyone is known to him, but today no one recognizes him, now that he is gone. None, save one light-boy, who remembers and recognizes his earliest benefactor – Sinha Saab.

The power of these images and these sequences now have a cult following, not only in India but worldwide. Remembering Guru Dutt on his seventy seventh anniversary. (9th July)

Today’s song is unique. It is from the film Laadlaa-54.

One would like to know what is so unique about this song. The answer is that this is the only song in Hindi film music history which is sung by the combination of these four great singers. They are Mohd. Rafi, Talat Mehmood, Shamshad Begum and Asha Bhonsle. As far as I know, It was for the first and last time that these four singers came together to sing a song. Mohd. Rafi features in few songs combining four singers, but not these our four singers. I am amazed how composer Vinod thought of this combination in the first place !

रांचीवाले का ईरानी ढाबा

– “क्यों जी, आज का स्पेशल क्या है”

– “एकदम फ्रेश फ्राइड चटपटा मसालेदार ग्यारह नौ सौ”

– “ये ग्यारह नौ सौ क्या डिश है भाई”

– “गाना है सर !! ग्यारह हज़ार नौ सौवाँ। बस आज ही सर्व होगा”

– “भाई ऐसा क्यों, आज ही क्यों सर्व होगा”

– “अरे साहब, कल हम नया ताज़ा ग्यारह हज़ार नौ सौ एक, और उस से भी आगे चलेंगे”

“लाऊं क्या, सर ?”

– “क्या”

– “गाना, ग्यारह हज़ार नौ सौ वां”

– “अच्छा, पेश करो, लेकिन ताज़ा होना चाहिए”

– “एकदम ताज़ा सर, एकदम नया, पहले इस ढाबे में कभी नहीं सर्व किया गया”

“अभी लाया”

🙂 🙂

Welcome all to our next century milestone, piling nine hundred on top of eleven thousand. And we are now just 100 short of the next thousandth milestone. And we hope to get there shortly now. This milestone has been quite slow to arrive. We have taken full forty days from the previous century, which occurred on 24th Jan.
