Jaidev Ki Non-Filmi Suraavali – 03
—————————————————-

When I look, with wide eyes, at my ‘Khjaana’ of Jaidev-ji’s Non-Film songs, I am confused about how to do my presentation of this series to our esteemed audience.  Should I take one artist serially or various artists at random? After an hour or so, of that internal fight, when I played one bhajan by Chhaaya Ganguly, it was easy to decide to present all HER songs serially.  Now with that internal fight over and with a clearer mind, I will write about this bhajan.

Jaidev Ki Non-Filmi Suraavali – 02
—————————————————-

I missed the birth anniversary of my dear Jaidev ji (3rd Aug), by not presenting a tribute to him. I also regretfully observed that same day on our blog, under to flood of songs of ‘KK’ by his fans, NO Atulite remembered Jaidev ji.

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Let us have a fun song from the 1981, Shomu Mukherjee produced & directed “Fiffty Fiffty” (and this is how fifty is spelt in the title card) which was certified on 15/10/1981 and released on 13/11/1981. It starred Rajesh Khanna and Tina Munim with Om Shivpuri (Bihari), Purnima (Mrs. Thakur), Amarnath (Thakur Vijendra Singh who is killed by Mr. Bihari before the titles), IndraniMukerjee (Mrs. Bihari who becomes dumb due to Mr. Bihari), Jairaj, Anita Guha, Nazir Hussain, Johny Whisky, CS Dubey, Jankidas, Jagdeep, Mushtaq Merchant, Kader Khan and Ranjeet. Dialogues were by Kader Khan. Anand Bakshi wrote the songs and Laxmikant-Pyarelal were the music directors.

Today (9 july 2017) is the birth anniversary of Sanjeev Kumar (9 july 1938-6 november 1985), one of the true legendary actors of Hindi cinema.

Today, he would have been 79 – but sadly, he didn’t even get to live to the age of 50. He was just 47 when a heart attack took him away from this world, and from millions of his fans. Just like Guru Dutt (also coincidentally born on the 9th of July and who died way too early), Sanjeev Kumar’s death left a void in Hindi cinema.

Today , the 20th of June, is a special day for us Atulites.

What’s so special about it, you ask?

Well, he who celebrates the birthdays of so many artistes here (and has an anniversary page on the blog) just happens to have been born on this date, a few summers ago.

This article marks the 1000th song contribution by Prakashchandra in the blog.

We in this blog have nearly thirty odd people, may be a little more, who could be called blog regulars. They visit the blog regularly, comment on it regularly and they are contributors to the blog as well, in one way or the other.

I have met a few blog regulars over the years and I have interacted with several others on phone, e mail, whatsapp etc. Blog regulars too have met each other either personally or on whatsapp, facebook, email, phone etc. We these days have get togethers of regulars which we call “gangout”, which is a word of our own making. Nearly a dozen gangouts of blog regulars have already taken place so far.

Today (10 may 2017) is the third anniversary of passing away of character actor Sudhir (10 May, 2014).

Now the last I had seen him in a movie was in ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’ in 2007 in a blink and miss role. Then we had also seen him in movies like ‘Dulhe Raja’ (1998) in a slightly less brief role with some comic timing thrown in. Prior to this I can remember him in Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Baadshah’ (1999) where also he had some comedy in the situation of his character. In the interim he was also seen in a few television serials. But of course if someone asked me who Sudhir was I can say that he was the smart guy (smarter than Dev Anand if I am allowed to say) in ‘Gambler’ (1971) who sits besides the heroine, Zahida, in the song “Dil Aaj Shaayar Hai Gham Aaj Naghma Hai“. But I had no material at hand to write about Sudhir. For example, I didn’t know where he was from etc. He played characters that were always behind the scenes in many of his movies like ‘Shareef Badmash’ (1973) etc. I checked online and found that his real name was Bhagwandas Mulchand Luthria. I also learnt that he is uncle to Milan Luthria who has made a few movies in recent times. Then on further googling I also saw that he had produced a movie or two (according to IMDB.com). It seems he was also an assistant director.  But nothing more that would stand out so I am leaving it to our experts in Atuldom to fill about this character artiste.

[Ed Note: Please see the post for the song “Na Maano To Koi Shikaayat Nahin” from film ‘Ustad 420’ (1969), as well as the comments therein. The comments plus the post provide a fairly detailed bio sketch of the character actor Sudhir.]

Hullo to all in Atuldom

A very Happy Holi (today on date 13 march 2017) to all who visit this blog.

Let there be lot of colour all around you; but not on your clothes??; makes washing difficult ??! And if there is a water shortage in your region please play dry holi- with only colours. Ideally the colours should be organic; they do less harm to the skin and eyes -this is what I have read I haven’t used them ever. I don’t even remember when and where was my last holi; possibly when I had just moved to Dahisar in Mumbai back in 2000. But I still love to see others forget themselves in this game of colours. And also, I love to think of all the famous delicacies that are made at Holi. I have heard of Ghujiyas and Kaanji Vadas, Thandaai and Bhaang. Another major attraction to Holi (for me) these days are the various songs that play on the Radio and TV channels. Enough to drive one down memory lane.

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

This post should have ideally appeared yesterday. But due to various reasons it remained unsent and the result is that we missed wishing a superstar who is first and foremost an actor; very versatile and untypecasted –much like the actor who we remembered on 6th November.

Today, 10th October 2016, happens to be the birthday of Rekha, one of the most successful and prominent actors of the 1970s and 1980s.

This blog was started in July 2008 – which means this blog has already seen eight birthdays of Rekha since it was started.
