hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is a visual treat. It is a fun song. It is a song where-in the dancer/ artist is a choreographer’s delight. She follows all instructions and executes them fabulously. It is also a comic delight, the facial expression etc. It is from a 1987 movie which hitherto has only one song representing it on the blog. That song was posted on march 28th 2013 and was a contribution by Guruji alias encyclopaedia of the blog. .

Now today (17 january 2018) I am revisiting the movie because it happens to be the 73rd birthday of the script writer of this movie. This was the last movie for which he teamed up with his partner Salim Khan. He worked as a team with Salim Khan for a period of about twelve years and approx. 24 films. He is a Padmashri & Padma Bhushan, as well as a Sahitya Akademi and National Film award (5 times) winner. His father was an Urdu poet and lyricist in Bollywood. He was initially married to famous child star of the 60s- Honey Irani and later to another talented actress- Shabana Azmi. He is father to super talented children Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar. Today (17 january 2018) is the birthdate of Jaaved Akhtar – son of Jan Nisar Akhtar. In addition to being a script writer he also is a lyricist which first came into public knowledge when he wrote songs for Yash Chopra’s “Silsila”.

“Mr. India” was a fantasy film which is a favourite with children of all times. It was directed by Shekhar Kapoor and written by Salim- Jaaved. Sridevi showed she had comic talent specially in the scene where she parodies Charles Chaplin. The dozen odd children were a treat for sore eyes. Amrish Puri as Mogambo is considered to be one of the best villains of Bollywood history. And as for Anil Kapoor the movie showed he was more an actor -a lambi-race ka ghoda as the term goes in Hindustani. There are stories about how Salim-Javed read the story to the superstars Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan and how they turned it down as they couldn’t relate to the concept of aninvisible man; but we will not think of that here.

Let us just sit back and enjoyyyyyyy this wonderful – comical- delightful song. I have heard in an interview by either the singer or the writer about how they wrote the lyrics of the initial part of the song. It seems they were sitting in a brain storming session- the director, music directors (Laxmi- Pyare), Kavitha Krishnamurthy etc etc. And each one gave a word or two, some sensible and some non-sensible. How else does one explain the words – hingsiki and why should I c Lucy, hassi tussi & lassi pisi follow each other and where did Hong Kong, King Kong, Ping Pong and Mombasa come from. But all-in-all a laugh riot.

Thank you, Jaaved Akhtar, and may we have more such songs from your pen.

Blog Day : 3463 Post No. : 13899

We are into the last few hours of the day today (10 january 2018). We have covered four songs for today, including one debutant song for the day. It was decided that two more songs would be covered today by Sudhir Ji, and one of them would be a YIPPEE song. But now with less than four hours left for the day, Sudhir Ji seems to have got busy. So I have decided that I will post the YIPPEE song for the day myself and Sudhir Ji may post his YIPPEE post on another day. As it is, I keep a few YIPPEE songs ready with me at any moment in order to live up to our new year resolution of covering one YIPPEE movie song daily.

The movie that I have taken up today is “Dharam Kaanta”(1982). It was a “daaku-drama” produced and directed by Sultan Ahmad who loved producing movies on this theme. His earlier movie on the same theme was “Ganga Ki Saugandh”(1978). “Dharam Kaanta”(1982) had Raaj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Waheeda Rehman, Reena Roy, Sulakshana Pandit, Amjad Khan, Satyen Kappu, Om Prakash, Nazir Hussain, Mukri, Hina Kausar, Nisar Ahmad Khan, Sheetal, Purnima etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Dharam Kaanta”(1982) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

The song is picturised as a mujra song on Sulakshana Pandit in the location of a Thakur ki haweli. Several characters in the movie, viz. Amjad Khan,Santyen Kappoo, Yunus Parvez , Hina Kausar etc are visible in the picturisation.

This song, one of the last compositions by Naushad can be counted as among the last few known mujra songs from HFM before this genre of songs all but vanished from Hindi movies.

With this song, “Dharam Kaanta”(1982) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Main aisa jhoom ke naachi aaj ke ghunghroo toot gaye (Dharam Kaanta)(1982) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

zaalim tere jahaan ki
har ek rasam chhod di hai
sharm o haya ki maine
zanjeer tod di ee hai ae

maine chhod di kab ki laaj
maine chhod di kab ki laaj
main aisa jhoom ke naachi aaj

maine chhod di kab ki laaj
mai aisa jhoom ke naachi aaj
ke ghunghru toot gaye
haaye re
ke ghunghru toot gaye

takraayi jo apne dilbar se
dil dhadka mohabbat ke dar se
takraayi jo apne dilbar se
dil dhadka mohabbat ke dar se
baahon mein jo usne gher liya
kuchh kar na saki
munh pher liya
baahon mein jo usne gher liya
kuchh kar na saki
munh pher liya
mohe loot gaya ek chor
padi main kuchh aisi kamzor
ke ghunghru toot gaye
haay re
ke ghunghru toot gaye

kyun aaj zamaane se darna
ruswaayi ka gham bhi kya karna
kyun aaj zamaane se darna
ruswaayi ka gham bhi kya karna
hansna hai ke aansu peena hai
ik raat mujhe to jeena hai
hansna hai ke aansu peena hai
ik raat mujhe to jeena hai
main chali piya ki oar
jawaani aisi hai munhjor
ki ghunghru toot gaye
ho o

reahta thha jo mere khwaabon mein
tasweer thhi jiski aankhon mein
rehta tha jo mere khwaabon mein
tasweer thhi jiski aankhon mein
baaje hai kahin bhi shehnaayi
main samjhi milan ki raat aayi
baaje hai kahin bhi shehnaayi
main samjhi milan ki raat aayi

main aisi hui behaal
kuchh aisi uljhi meri chaal
ke ghunghru toot gaye

ghunghru re ghunghru re ghunghru re
ghunghru toot gaye

kuchh der ka ye afsaana hai
bas dil ko yahi samjhaana hai
kuchh der ka ye afsaana hai
bas dil ko yahi samjhaana hai
zanjeer main jis’se ghaayal thhi
duniya ki nazar mein paayal thhi
zanjeer main jis’se ghaayal thhi
duniya ki nazar mein paayal thhi
wo aaj kate zanjeer
chalaaya maine aisa teer
ke ghunghru toot gaye
maine chhod di kab ki laaj
mai aisa jhoom ke naachi aaj
ke ghunghru toot gaye
aa aa aa

ae o o
ke ghunghru toot gaye

“Dharam Kaanta” (1982) was produced and directed by Sultan Ahmad for Sultan Ahmad Productions, Bombay. The movie had Raaj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Waheeda Rehman, Reena Roy, Sulakshana Pandit, Amjad Khan, Satyen Kappu, Om Prakash, Nazir Hussain, Mukri, Hina Kausar, Nisar Ahmad Khan, Sheetal, Purnima etc in it.

This Daaku-drama tale would not have been out of place if it was released in 1960s, but a story like this was an anachronism in 1980s. If one asks me, even the main actors signed up for this movie were by and large past their sell by date.

The movie had five songs in it. three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Dharam Kaanta” (1982) to appear in the blog. The song is s “villain’s den” genre of song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is lip synced by Reena Roy, with other main characters of the movie also present. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

Yesterday (7 january 2018) was the birthday of Reena Roy. So this song serves as a belated bithday greetings for her as well.


Song-Teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki (Dharam Kaanta)(1982) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
aa aa aa
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
khair nahin khair nahin mehfil ki
haaye
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
khair nahin khair nahin mehfil ki

tu sharaabi hai
tere haath mein paimaana hai
meri aankhon mein chhalakta hua maikhaana hai
hum wo saaqi hain jo deewaana bana dete hain
jaam khaali ho to nazron se pila dete hain

ye jawani ye ada
iska hai aur nasha
jaam ye jisne piya
mast hokar wo gira
zara nigaah uthha deewaane
jara nigah uthha deewaane
aaj nikal jaaye tamanna dil ki
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
haan
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
khair nahin khair nahin mehfil ki

pyaar mein jaan ki parwaah nahin ki jaati
dil mein ho dard magar aah nahin ki jaati
pyaar karte hain jo ghar baar luta dete hain
qatl ho jaaye to qaatil ko dua dete hain
kya khabar tujhko bhala
pyaar hai kaisi bala
aag us dil mein lagi
shola is dil mein uthha
ishaara mera samajh le dilbar
ishaara mera samajh le dilbar
baat nahin aisi koi musqil ki
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
haan teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
khair nahin khair nahin mehfil ki

naam mera bhi hai bijli
muqaddar waala hai
na samjhna ki akela tu hi dilwaala hai
chhed dono mein chalegi to maza aayega
aag se aag milegi to maza aayega
kuchh teri baat bane
kuchh meri baat bane
raat dhalne de zara
phir koi ba bane
kisi ka tu bhi agar ghaayal ho
kisi ka tu bhi agar ghqayal ho
jaanega phir baat kisi ghaayal ki
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
aa teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
khair nahin khair nahin mehfil ki

“Kaamchor”(1982) was directed by K Vishwanath. This movie, a remake of Telugu hit “Subhodayam”(1980) had Rakesh Roshan, Jaya Prada, Tanuja, Sujit Kumar, Suresh Oberoi, Shreeram Lagoo, Nita Mehta, Pinchoo Kapoor, Asrani, Bhagwan Dada etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it that became quite popular during its time.

Five songs from the movie have bee discussed in the blog in the past.

Here is the sixth and final song from the movie. It is a roadside tamasha song which is sung by Kishore Kumar and it is picturised on Rakesh Roshan, Asrani (playing an astrologer and carrying a forune telling parrot with him) and a female dancer whom I am unable to identify.

Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

With this song, “Kaamchor”(1982) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Jogi o jogi bhaag mein mere likkha hai (Kaamchor)(1982) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

jogi o jogi
bhaag mein mere likha hai
ek din main raaja banoonga
tera hi tota kehta hai
ek din main raaja banoonga
tera hi tota kehta hai
jogi o jogi
bhaag mein mere likha hai
ek din main raaja banuga
tera hi tota kehta hai
laa
lalalala
lalala

sooraj ho balwaan
tez chandar
yaaron banta hai wo sikandar
sooraj ho balwaan
tez chandar
yaaron banta hai wo sikandar
powerful hon grah
tabhi to kar lenge maal andar
jogi
jogi o jogi
bhaag mein mere likha hai
ek din main raaja banoonga
tera hi tota kehta hai
ek din main raaja banoonga
tera hi tota kehta hai

mitne ko har cheez mit jaaye
haathon se rekha na jaaye
mitne ko har cheez mit jaaye
haathon se rekha na jaaye
aji mutthi mein hai kismat apni
phir tu kyon ghabraaye
jogi
jogi o jogi
bhaag mein mere likha hai
ek din tu raaja banega
tera hi tota kehta hai
ek din main raaja banoonga
tera hi tota kehta hai
laa
lalalala lalla

is tareh jaao nahin
jaao nahin
jaao nahin. . .

Wish that we could, but we are powerless. We can’t make them stay, ones who have to go away. Jaidev, the master of enchanting melodic creations. His film songs may number just about two hundred. But the impact he left behind him, is incomparable.

Remembering Jaidev on the 30th anniversary of his passing away (6th January, 1987).

Words like ‘tragic’, ‘unsung’, ‘unlucky’, ‘jinxed’ swim through the mind when one considers the life and career of this eminent music director. The only MD in the industry to have bagged three national awards for music direction. And all his life he lived in a one room flat near Churchgate in Bombay – a residence provided by an beneficent music lover. And when that benefactor passed away, his familial survivors reclaimed even that humble dwelling.

He scored one of his biggest successes with ‘Hum Dono’ in 1960. And yet Navketan never came back to him for another project. ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ (1963) was bonanza of heavenly music. Yet there was such a serious falling out with Sahir Ludhianvi that they never worked together again. (With one exception – a lesser known ‘Laila Majnun’ from 1976). And this, despite the fact that Jaidev’s music is minimalistic, quite low on instrumentation, so much so that the poet’s words are always in the foreground.

National awards came his way in 1971 (‘Reshma Aur Shera’), 1978 (‘Gaman’) and 1984 (‘Ankahee’). But no big banner or a big budget producer came to his door. The songs of his films continued to be popular and continued to enamour the music lovers, be it ‘Do Boond Pani’ (1971) – “Jaa Ri Pawaniya Piya Ke Des Jaa”; ‘Bhaavna’ (1972) – “Phir Milengi Kahaan Aisi Tanhaaiyaan”; ‘Prem Parbat’ (1973) – “Ye Dil Aur Unki Nigaahon Ke Saaye”; ‘Aalingan’ (1974) – “Pyaas Thi Phir Bhi Takaaza Na Kiya”; ‘Parinay’ (1974) – “Jaise Sooraj Ki Garmi Se Jalte Huye Tan Ko”; ‘Andolan’ (1975) – “Piya Ko Milan Kaise Hoye Ree, Main Jaanyo Naahin”; and more. A patch of good times came in 1977 – 79 with a string of successful big name films – ‘Alaap’ (1977), ‘Gharonda’ (1977), ‘Tumhare Liye’ (1978), ‘Dooriyan’ (1979), ‘Gaman’ (1979). But that streak of good luck did not last beyond that.

His work in the non-film arena is no less important and enchanting. His most famous non film creation is the music of Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s ‘Madhushala’, when he got Manna Dey to render this epic poem. The music director in him continued to trudge along –

manzil mile milena mile, mujhe is ka gham nahin
manzil ki justuju mein mera karvaan toh hai

Today’s song has been suggested by our dear Prakash ji, who has also sent in the lyrics. The film is ‘Amar Jyoti’ from 1984. Songwriter is Naqsh Lyallpuri and the singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. The song is an enchanting expression of the promises of love.

A tribute in the memory of this unsung genius, and a salaam with the words (from ‘Bhaavna’, 1972),

koi waada nahin hai mulaqaat ka
ye nazar hai magar muntazir aapki…


Song – Janam Janam Ka Hai Ye Naata  (Amar Jyoti) (1984) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Jaidev

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchanda)

janam janam ka naata

bas geet yahi dohraayengi

tu maanjhi main naiya teri

tu maanjhi main naiya teri
ye pyaar bhara patwaar apna
janam janam ka hai ye naata

hai preet madhur si raagini
jeevan beena ke taar ki
jo dekhi tere nainon mein
jo dekhi tere nainon mein
hai amar wo jyoti pyaar ki
is paar kabhi us paar kabhi

is paar kabhi us paar kabhi

janam janam ka hai ye naata
tera mera saajna
saath kabhi na chhoote
pyaar kabhi na toote
janam janam ka hai ye naata
tera mera saajna. . .

hullo Atuldom

This post features the YYIIPPEEEE song of the movie called “Agni Pareeksha” (1981). Produced by B. R. Chopra and directed by Kamal Majumdar. The star cast had Amol Palekar- Parikshit Sahni- Rameshwari in the lead and the supporting cast was of Veena, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Utpal Dutt and Dinesh Thakur. Music was by Salil Choudhry and Yogesh was the lyricist. Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar were the singers used. The movie had four songs, all solos no duets, three have been posted with a brief idea about the movie being in this post.

I had held back sending this post to Atulji as I wanted it to coincide with Rameshwari’s birthday. She is a graduate from the Film and Televison Institute Pune. She has appeared in many movies in varied languages – Malayalam, Bengali, Bhojpuri, oriya etc. she met her husband at TFII. Together they produced “Hum farishtey nahi” in hindi and “mein tunn assi tussi” in Punjabi… but she is best remembered for “Dulhan wahi jo piya man bhaaye”, “Sunayana”, “Asha” etc. and a few serials. She took a break to raise her family and was back in 2002 with “Kuch Tum Kaho Kuch Hum Kahe” as Vikram Gokhale’s sister and from then began her 2nd innings.

Today’s song will remind the viewer of songs like “aaj se pehle aaj se zyada” from “Chitchor” and “dil toh hai dil dil ka aitbaar kya kije” from “Muqqadar Ka Sikandar”. Meaning the heroine is singing blissfully unaware that both the heroes are fantasising about her. 🙂 also as in the Chitchor song she is unaware of the changed relations between her and Parikshit Sahni. Remember in the Cgtchor song Amol Palekar was unaware of the situation until Zarina Wahab informs him about why Vijendra has made an appearance in their life.

Editor’s note- I had originally planned to cover this song three years ago on this date in 2015 and that writeup is still there with me. I have no idea how I missed posting it on that date as post number 10650. Lyrics and other details for the song were provided by Prakashchandra for the song. So the lyrics of this song are by Prakashchandra and my observations on Rameshwari that I had then noted down were like this:

Today (6 january) is the birthday of Rameshwari. Many people among younger generation may look askance on the mention of her name. But there was a time during 1977-78 when she was one of the hottest properties in Hindi movies when she made her debut in Rajshree Production’s endearing movie “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye” (1977). This movie turned her into an overnight sensation. People (especially women) would throng to watch this movie. When this movie was released in my town, I did not take any notice of it because the title of the movie did not appeal to me and in any case I was more into watching Amitabh Bachchan movies those days. But when I noticed that this movie was having a longer run in the town that what even “Sholay” (1975) managed, then I was intrigued and I bunked my college to watch this movie. And I was bowled over ! I then watched this movie four more times, and it was only for Rameshwari.

Blog Day : 3457 Post No. : 13869

Anand Bakshi- R. D. Burman- Kishore Kumar- Rajesh Khanna. This is one combination that spelt wonders for all Hindi film music lovers across the globe. This is a combo which gave us melodies, in the 70s, in films like Kati Patang, The Train, Apna Desh, Amar Prem, Raja Rani, Namak Haraam, Aap Ki Kasam, Ajnabee etc. The trend followed in the 80s too with movies like Ashanti, Hum Dono (yes there are three films by this name in Bollywood), Awaaz, Alag Alag, etc.

Ok why am I listing all this? Because I have been listening to a lot of RD Burman songs since morning and thinking how his music sounds good even after a lapse of about 35 years. Of course, he did compose music in films in the 90s but most of the movies (with RDB music) post 1988 kept failing at the box office. So much so, that his musical contribution went mostly unnoticed—”Gardish” in 1993 with a song like “Hum na samjhe thhe baat bas itni si khwab seeshe ki duniya pathar ki” etc. The magic seemed to have vanished. An anecdote by Vidoo Vinod Chopra goes like this: he had gone to sign RD for his “1942-A Love Story”. And wen he heard what RD had composed he was not happy with the way it sounded. Vinod Chopra has said in many interviews that RD didn’t know why his music was not working amongst his fans and he was finding it difficult to find his moorings. And the final score that we hear in that movie came out after ‘N’ number of sittings. But unfortunately, RD never lived to enjoy his success post “1942- a Love Story”.

But we, the fans of RD Burman, clutch at any song of his that triggers memories of his great days. And today I have one such song from the 1984 release “Awaaz”. This movie starred Rajesh Khanna, Rakesh Roshan, Suresh Oberoi, Jaya Prada, Supriya Pathak, Amrish Puri, Madan Puri etc. the movie had one other distinction – it was a coming together of the Rajesh- Shakti Samanta team post “Anurodh” in 1977. Today’s song is a party song. Probably a marriage anniversary of Rajesh Khanna and Jaya Prada where we find his sister Supriya Pathak, friend Suresh Oberoi with his wife (in the movie 🙂 ) Beena, and Rakesh Roshan as his to-be brother-in-law enjoying the song. Only one Song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Missing you R D Burman.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Wishing all a Merry Christmas. Also remembering Guru Gobind Singh on his 351st Jayanti today. I know for Christmas we should say “Merry Christmas” but unfortunately, what does one wish for Guru Gobind Singh Jayanthi. My apologies to all our Sikh friends for my ignorance.
I believe there is a confusion regarding the exact date. As per the Gregorian calendar it could be any date from December 22nd to January 15th as the Indian calendar says Saptami of Shukla Paksh in Paush month. I also read in some newspapers that there are almost weeklong celebrations in many parts of India.

But my today’s post is to remember one of India’s topmost music director of the 40s, 50s & 60s. He began by assisting Ustaad Jhande Khan, Ustaad Mushtaq Hussain etc in the late 30s. He composed for his first independent film “Prem Nagar” in 1940 and with A.R. Kardar’s “Nayi Duniya” (1942) he got his first credit as music director. Now I know that all the stalwart- followers of this blog would have guessed that I am talking about Naushad.

Something which I realised as I sat to write this post is “wow! Yesterday was Mohd. Rafi’s birth anniversary and today is Naushad saab’s. Interesting”

As I always say, I am no authority to write about any of the stalwarts that graced the Bollywood film scene in the golden era of Hindi film music. Or for that matter of any age and time as I only love the music created by them and don’t know anything personally, whatever I know is hearsay or whatever I have read up over the years. But our Rajaji had written a very beautiful post Duniya chhote yaar na chhoote on the occasion of Naushad’s death anniversary.

Without much build-up I will come directly to today’s song. I was looking for a song that would bring Mohd. Rafi and Naushadsaab together and also fulfil the criteria of being from my growing up years. I landed on “Dharam Kanta”. This movie had six songs of which three were duets- Mohd. Rafi with Bhupinder (already posted) and with Asha Bhonsle two songs- one is posted. Here is the next one. The songs of the movie were penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri.


Song-Tera naam liya dil thhaam liya (Dharam Kaanta)(1982) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

dil ke bazaar mein
daulat nahin dekhi jaati

ek adaa par yeh dil o jaan
nichhaawar kar doon oon oon

Hullo Atuldom

Smita Patil (17th October 1955-13th December 1986) was an unusual actor much in the same template as Shabana Azmi if one may say so. She did justice to all the characters she was offered. One can distinctly remember her act in “Arth” as a person who was obsessed and insecure about her lover. Or her simply -being a prop-for-the-hero role in movies like Shakti, Namak Halal, Badle Ki Aag, Ghungroo etc. And we cannot forget her movies like Ardh Satya, Bazaar, Mirch Masala, Bhumika, Bhavani Bhavai, Umbartha (the last two movies mentioned were dubbed from Gujarati & Marathi respectively.) Umbartha was Subah in Hindi.

Smita Patil’s career spanned from 1974- 1989. Around 10-15 of her movies were completed and released after her death.
Remembering Smita Patil on her anniversary today with this song by Lata Mangeshkar from Subah (Umbartha 1982). The lyricist for this song is Narendra Sharma & music is by Hridayanath Mangeshkar.

For this movie Smita won the Marathi Rajya Chitrapat Puraskar for Best Actress.

This is a brief synopsis of the movie taken from Wikipedia. (I am resorting to it as I don’t want to go wrong about a movie I saw many years back)

Umbartha (translation: Threshold) is a 1982 Marathi film produced by D. V. Rao and directed and co-produced by Dr. Jabbar Patel. The film is a story of a woman’s dream to step outside the four walls of her home and bring change in the society. Smita Patil played the lead protagonist in the film for which she won. The film was adjudged as the Best Feature Film in Marathi at the 29th National Film Awards for “a sincere cinematic statement on the theme of a woman seeking to establish her identity by pursuing a career, even at the risk of alienation from her family”. The film is based on a Marathi novel “Beghar” (translation: Homeless) by Shanta Nisal and was also simultaneously made in Hindi as Subah with the same cast.

Sulabha Mahajan (played by Smita Patil) is a woman who dreams to step out of the four walls of the house, assume greater responsibility as a citizen and play an important role in shaping the society. She has passion to do something constructive for the abused, assaulted, neglected and traumatized womenfolk of the society she lives in. She gets a job offer as Superintendent of a Women’s Reformatory Home in a remote town of Sangamwadi. The job offer raises objections from her lawyer husband Subhash (played by Girish Karnad) and conservative mother-in-law who refuse to understand her need to move to the town and work for rehabilitation of the women. But her sister-in-law supports her by offering help in looking after her young daughter Rani. Determined Sulabha then goes ahead with her dream job.

She meets various challenges in her new endeavor. She starts with bringing discipline in the Home and also discovers frauds that take place there. But she is not helped by the managing committee which is filled with selfish and careless people. She hence decides to take steps against their sanction. She starts some classes to educate willing women and also marries off one of the inmates in order to give a new start to her life. She discovers how a local MLA Bane has been regularly using the inmates of the home to satisfy his sexual needs. Two of the inmates decide to run away but are forcefully brought back to the home. They both commit suicide by burning themselves. Sulabha is then questioned by committee and newspapers for her improper control on the home. An administrative enquiry is set up against her. It is then that she decides to resign and give up all her work and return home.

When she returns to her home she is happily welcomed by her sister-in-law but not so much by her mother-in-law. She then comes to know that her husband Subhash has been involved with another woman in her absence. His betrayal changes her mind and she again sets off to follow her dream work.

The film had Girish Karnad playing her husband, Shrikant Moghe (brother in law) Ashalata Wabgaonkar as her sis-in-law, Daya Dongre and a whole lot of Marathi actors of that time (if I am not wrong Kusum Kulkarni played the mother-in-law). Remembering a highly talented Smita today (13 december 2017) on her anniversary.

Hullo Atuldom

“Asli Naqli” that was released in 1986 was directed by Sudarshan Nag. It had a star cast of Shatrughan Sinha- Anita Raaj- Raadhika- Rajnikanth- Amrish Puri- Shakti Kapoor -Ashok Kumar. It had a normal storyline wherein as boy is separated from his wealthy parents in childhood. His parents have only one clue of him- a locket that he is wearing. Upon his father’s death the mother embarks on a mission to trace out her long-lost son with the help of (typically named) Durjan Singh (Amrish Puri). Durjan Singh and his son Shakti Singh (Shakti Kapoor) plant Birju ustaad (Rajnikanth) as the son with the sole motive of plundering the wealthy widow. Then Shatrughan Sinha steps-in and the plot spices up. Further the ladies are there for the song and dance routines. Essentially what this movie had was two superstars with stylised acting and the public had a paisa-vasool feeling. It had a decent run at the box-office.

Today (12 december 2017) this movie makes it debut on the blog on the occasion of Rajnikanth’s birthday. Rajnikanth- on whom various jokes are directed day in and day out. One example: the recent cyclone was because he sneezed. Rajnikanth- whose rise to superstardom is fairy-tale-like. Rajnikanth – the humble giant of the South Indian film industry -he works largely in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada movies but his movies are usually dubbed into other languages too. He has acted in about 20-25 Hindi movies too with Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Rekha, Shabana Azmi, Zeenat Aman etc as his co-actors. He has the next generation of heroines- Aishwarya Rai, Sonakshi etc- too ready to do miniscule roles just for the pleasure of being in a Rajni film.

The songs of the movie were written by S.H. Bihari- Shamsul Huda Bihari. He was the writer of such classics as “bahut shukriya badi meherbani”; “hai duniya usiki zamaana usika”; “raaton ko chori chori”; “meri jaan tum sadke ehsaan itna kardo” and lots more.
The music director for “Asli Naqli” was Laxmikant- Pyarelal. Today’s song has the voices of Shabbir Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal with (surprise! Surprise!) Laxmikant Kudalkar meaning Laxmikant the music director himself. It is a party song where both the heroes are trying to prove the other as the imposter with Anita Raaj trying to drill sense into them. Seema Deo, Amrish Puri and Shakti Kapoor don’t seem amused by the proceedings.

With this song we also wish the other superstar whose birthday was on the 9th – Shatrughan Sinha. (sorry to have missed it.)
Happy Birthday Thalaiva a.k.a Rajnikanth.
