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.

Salil Chowdhury or Salilda as he was known in the Indian Film industry…mind the term Indian here and not Bollywood—would have been about 94 years old (on 19th November) if he had been there. He was an active music composer for Malayam, Bengali and Hindi movies. That is the reason for me using the term “Indian Film Industry”. Born in West Bengal he spent his childhood in the Tea Gardens of Assam. He came to Calcutta (Kolkata) for his graduate studies and that is when he joined IPTA. His musical career had a take off from here when he wrote and set songs to tune for IPTA. His film debut came in the Bengali film of 1949 “Paribortan” and his Hindi debut was Bimal Roy’s “Do Bigha Zamin” in 1952. His Malayalam debut was “Chemeen” in 1964. He did about 75 Hindi. 40 Bengali and 27 Malayalam movies. We can find his music in a few Tamil, Kannada, Marathi, Gujarati, Oriya and Assamese films too.

As I was going through the blog I found that “Agni Pareeksha” (1981) had music by Salilda. On further hunting I came across a very hummable song in the vocals of Kishore Kumar that was written by Yogesh. The song has Amol Palekar singing for a puppet show and Rameshwari and Parikshit Sahani squirming very much like Rajendra Kumar and Vyjayanthimala in “Dost dost na raha, pyar pyar na raha,” style. Seeing this I resolved to see the movie to get the song in context.

After having sat through 2 hours and 15 minutes of the movie “Agni Pareeksha” this is what I learnt or deduced:-

Sometimes even the best intentions of the producer (this movie is produced by B.R. Chopra death anniversary was on 5th November) and good acting by an able actor meaning Amol Palekar (24th November birthday i.e. today) are not enough to save a movie with a bad story and script no matter who the director is (Kamal Majumdar). Added to that one has to tolerate an actor who hams -Parikshit Sahni and an actress (Rameshwari) who has nothing much to do.

The story revolves around the estate and business of a rich lady (Veena) who has a son (Amol Palekar) undergoing treatment in psychiatric’s (Iftikhar) nursing home to get over a trauma. The son has seen his father commit suicide by jumping off a bridge into a river prompted by his wife- Veena’s ex-love’s (Dr.Shreeram Lagoo) return. This is the cause of the son’s trauma.

Meanwhile, Veena takes the responsibility of looking after the upbringing of an orphan girl (Rameshwari) -who turns out to be a good student and eventually a good companion to the now-aged Veena. She also assists the aged lady in handling her factories and other businesses after they find that the manager (Utpal Dutt in a negative role) is not liked by the workers of the factory.

The workers prefer to toe the line of their engineer (Parikshat Sahni), so Veena puts the engineer and Meeta (Rameshwari) in charge of the factories etc. In addition, she assigns the engineer a job to convince her son to return home plus to add confusion to the story she starts toying with the idea of having Meeta for a daughter-in-law.

As luck would have it Meeta and the engineer have fallen in love, and the son (Amol Palekar) also develops a liking for Meeta the instant he sees her. Then follows the usual round of sacrifices between the lovers so that ‘Maalkin’ and her son are happy; the son is instigated by the ex-manager to doubt the lovers; Meeta runs away to marry the engineer and the son shoots himself with a gun that has the engineer’s fingerprints enough to accuse the engineer of the murder. What follows is the family and Meeta trying their level best with the help of Dr. Shreeram Lagoo to save the engineer from the gallows.

So that my friends is the “Agni Pareeksha” that the audience is put to.

After having graduated from J.J. School of Arts Mumbai, and working in a bank alongside being active on stage, Amol Palekar made his movie debut in Satyadev Dubey’s Marathi movie “Shantata! Court Chalu Aahe!” and Basu Chatterjee’s Rajnigandha was his first Hindi release. This led to many other ‘middle-class boy next door’ roles for almost the entire 70s and he did his act so well that when he did a serial-killer in Vinod Chopra’s “Khamosh” or a grey-shaded Kishan Lal in Anil Ganguly’s “Aanchal” it came as a shock to the audience.

He had done a grey-shaded character very early on in his career in Shyam Benegal’s 1977 release “Bhumika” too; but essentially, he was always the friendly-neighborhood good boy. On running through his filmography, it is seen that his movie career started around the same time as the Amitabh Bachchan’s but they got to act together only in the 2001 releases “Aks” where Amol had a brief role of a defence minister though AB did a friendly appearance in “Golmaal” (1979).

Today he has returned to his first love – painting though he says he is still open to doing movies if he finds them interesting.

Wishing our Ram Prasad alias Laxman Prasad alias Amol Palekar a happy and healthy life- and a very Happy Birthday.

Song-Mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi (Agni Pareeksha)(1981) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics

mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi
aa gaye meri baahon mein donon jahaan

mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi
aa gaye meri baahon mein donon jahaan
yaar paas hai
pyaar bhi paas hai
taqdeer sabki hoti hai aisi kahaan
mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi
aa gaye meri baahon mein donon jahaan

main thha akela nahin
koi kahin thha mera humsafar
jeewan ki sooni si thhi ye dagar
main thha akela nahin
koi kahin tha mera humsafar
jeewan ki sooni si thhi ye dagar
tumne jo pyaar se apnaaya mujhe
tumne jo pyaar se apnaaya mujhe
raah saji manzil ki
mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi
aa gaye meri baahon mein donon jahaan
yaar paas hai pyaar bhi pas hai
taqdeer sabki hoti hai aisi kahaan

do do mujhe toh dekho paaras patthar chhoo gaye
sone ke rang mein range khwaab naye
do do mujhe toh dekho paras pathar chhoo gaye
sone ke rang mein range khwaab naye
jhoome dil magan

phir se mere man mein basi
mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi
aa gaye meri baahon mein donon jahaan
yaar pass hai
pyaar bhi pas hai
taqdeer sabki hoti hai aisi kahaan
taqdeer sabki hoti hai aisi kahaan

In India, a typical Indian male is likely to be interested in Hindi movies and cricket. Typical Indian females are likely to be interested in Hindi movies and TV serials. 🙂

I have been a typical Indian male for many years now. 🙂 I was interested in Hindi movies right from my childhood, viz 1960s. I became interested in cricket from early 1970s.

In those days, one needed to go to movie halls to watch movies. One followed international cricket on radio. Just a few lucky people would be able to watch the match live on the ground.

Nowadays, one can watch all kinds of movies as well as all kinds of cricket matches in the luxury of our homes on TV. One can watch/ follow them on mobile, computers etc as well. That way, following movies and cricket has come a long way from the days of 1960s.

TV channels as well as the content providers (be they movie makers or cricket boards), that dish up the fare that we watch, do not rest on their oars. They constantly reinvent themselves.

As a sports lover, I always thought that Indians needed to follow more sports than just cricket. We in India give undue importance to cricket to the detriment of other sports.

Most armchair critics like us only criticise and we do not do much to address such issues, but the good thing is that some people have actually started addressing these issues. We now have people who have started to promote other sports as well. If we have IPL in cricket, then we have similar leagues in quite a few other less popular sports as well, viz in Hockey, football, badminton, Kabaddi etc. that are being promoted and covered by a few TV networks.

I must admit that I did not watch these coverage till last year. My view was that the standard of India in these sports like say Football was abysmal and organising this football league was unlikely to help matters. About Kabbadi, my view was that it is played in India and neighbouring countries, so what was so great watching a sports that was not even a global sport.

In MP, government lady employees could take childcare leave for upto two years till their child was under 18 years old. Our daughter, then undergoing medical coaching was a few months short of turning 18, so my wife decided to avail childcare leave for the few months for which she was eligible. So she took childcare leave for those months and came over to stay with me in UP. It was supposed to be a childcare leave, but in reality, it turned out to be a husband and pets care leave for her. 🙂

It was in late 2015 that my wife joined me in UP at my place of posting.

My wife had watched the first two editions of PKL (Pro Kabaddi League) and it was on her insistence that I began to watch third season of PLK beginning in january 2016. Initially I watched it grudgingly, but soon I realised that what I was watching was a thrilling sport that required tremendous skill and that I was watcing the best practitioners of the sport in this PKL.

The rules of kabaddi in PKL were modified to make it a thrilling and fast paced sports, which was a far cry from the image of a largely dull and boring rustic sport that it was perceived to be till then. In traditional kabaddi, one could keep playing empty raids ad infinitum, making it a dull and negative spectacle. In PKL, only two empty raids in a row were allowed, and the third raid was a “do or die” raid. Other innovative modifications were bonus point for the raider when six or seven defenders were playing and super tackle for the defenders when three or less defenders were around.

I and my wife would religiously watch TV together in the evening to watch PKL matches. Both of us independently arrived at the decision to “adopt” Patna Pirates as the team to support. The eight teams, all named after various Indian cities, would move in a caravan to the cities of each of the teams in turn. Every team played every other team twice (home and away). The top fours teams advanced to the semifinals. The number one team of a group played number four, while the number two and three teams played the other semifinal.

Patna Pirates, wo looked like the strongest team in the tournament went on to become the champions when they narrowly defeated U Mumba in the final. Rohit Kumar, the Patna Pirates raider impressed everyone and he was the man of the tournament.

The fourth season of PKL was played in june and july of 2016. Patna Pirates once again proved to be the strongest team and they retained the title by defeating Pink Panthers in the final. Rahul Chaudhary of Telugu Titans was the man of the tournament though it was Pardeep Narwal of Patna Pirates who really caught the eyes of the fans with his spectacular escapes from defenders through “dubkis”.

The fifth season of PKL is in progress now. The four seasons of PKL have seen audiences growing up by leaps and bounds. Just as I joined in the third seasons, many more people have begun to follow PKL. It has in fact now become the second biggest sporting league in India after IPL.

The fifth season of PKL is a vastly expanded affair. Now there are twelve teams, grouped into two groups of six teams each. Each teams play other teams in the group thrice and play the teams of other group once. So every team plays 22 matches. The finalists are selected by a method similar to that followed by IPL.

This season was four months long. It was a calculated risk but the organisers seem to have succeeded in their gamble. They managed to keep the watches glued to their TV screen for four months.

The six teams of North (Dabang Delhi, Haryana Steelers, Jaipur Pink Panthers) and West (U Mumba, Puneri Paltan, Gujarat Fortunegiants) were placed in group A, whereas Group B had teams from East (Patna Pirates, Bengal Warriors, U P Yodda) and South (Telugu Titans, Bangalore Bulls and Tamil Thalaivas).

It was interesting to note that new teams, viz Gujarat Fortunegiants, Haryana Steelers and UP warriors did well. It is Tamil Thalaivars, another new team that failed to win much and finished at the bottom of their group.

Initial matches gave the indication that Patna Pirates, despite losing many of their players to other teams in the auction, were the team to beat. It was mainly because of the brilliance of Patna Pirates raider Pardeep Narwal who had looked unstoppable in the previous season and looked just as irrepressible in the earlier matches of the current season.

But as the matches wore on, it turned out that other teams had worked out their strategies to tame Pardeep Narwal. The implementation of their strategies was the main thing. Often the opposition wopuld keep Pardeep Narwal at bay for say 30 minutes out of 40, still he would change the match topsy turvy in the remaining ten minutes of the match.

One can see that the PKL has evolved with time. Many players have moved over to new teams. Teams have worked out new strategies.

Though most players are Indians, every team has some foreigners too. Kabaddi is the national game of Bangladesh as well, but the country which can be said to be the strongest in Kabaddi after India is Iran. They are the only other team apart from India which has a good Kabaddi set up. Most foreigners in PKL are from Iran and they are very important parts of their respective teams.

Ironically, the most popular and most successful foreigner is not an Iranian but a Korean ! Jang Kun Lee is the star raider of Bengal Warrior and he was in fact their skipper in the past. How he and a few other Koreans took to Kabaddi and became this good could be a case study. He really caught the eye of kabaddi watchers in the previous two seasons.

As mentioned earlier, there are quite a few Iranians in various teams. One of them, viz Meraj Sheikh is in fact the captain of the Dabang Delhi team. Abolfazal Maghsodlu is the other Iranian player in the team.

But the two Iranians who have had a major role in their team’s fortune are Fazal Atrachali and Abozar Mighani. Both of them are defenders and they are with Gujarat Fortunegiants. Theie robust tackles have made their team’s defence the strongest in the tournament.

Gujarat Fortunegiants, one of the four new teams in PKL, appear to have done their homework in great detail. They decided to have strong tacklers as well as tall raiders. While their defence is the strongest in the tournament, their raiders, who were largely unknown names till now have really proved out to be surprise packages in the tournament.

Gujarat Fortunegiants have also done something that no other team did ! They brought in a foreigner as their physiotherapist. This foreign physiotherapist is a female. Olivia Witek is from Poland. She is no stranger to contact sports. A trained sports medicine expert in the past, she has been the physiotherapist of Poland American rules Rugby team. She was the physiotherapist of the Polish Kabaddi team that visited India in 2016 to participate in the Kabaddi world cup that was held in Ahmedabad. Perhaps it was during this visit that she caught the eyes of Adanis, who were then recruiting staff for their soon to be launched kabaddi team. It must be said that her training regime must have done a world of good to the players of her team, seeing that Gujarat Fortunegiants are actually in the final of PKL to be played today (28 october 2017). In addition to her to putting her players through their paces, she also serves as an attractive cheergirl for her team in all their matches. I find that she, like me, has two dogs back home. That must be the secret of her success in her profession. 🙂

Patna Pirates, the two times defending champions are the other team in the final and they will seek to make it three titles in a row. It should be a grand and riveting finale seeing that the two teams are easily the best teams in the tournament. I am keenly looking forward to the final that will be played tonight (28 october 2017). And this match will be watched worldwide. Starsports, now a majority stakeholder in PKL is playing a big role in popularising Kabaddi world wide with their TV coverage of this tournament. I have certainly become a PKL fan and I cannot wait to watch the final. This tournament showcasing the native Indian sport of Kabaddi is being sponsored by Vivo, a Chinese company. So Chinese companies too recognise the potential of Kabaddi. Hindi Chini Bhai bhai. 🙂

Kabaddi is an Indian sport but it is surprising that Hindi movies do not have many Kabaddi songs in them. The most well known (some will say the only one) song on Kabaddi is from “Naseeb”(1981). This song, “Pakdo pakdo pakdo” shows two teams playing Kabaddi. The rules of this kabaddi match are much more creative and innovative than even the PKL rules. 🙂 For once, this Kabaddi match is between a male team (led by Rishi Kapoor) and a female team (led by Kim). Both teams have ten players each, far in excess of the figure of seven, but then who in Hindi movies knows how to count. 🙂 And the moves made by the players in this match cannot be found in any Kabaddi coaching manual. 🙂

The male team is coached by Jeewan and the female team by Shubha Khote. Instead of taking interest in their teams performance, the two are shown taking interest in each other throughout the song. 🙂

The song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

hullo to all in Atuldom

Today 13th of October is a rather sad date for fans of Bollywood music. It was on this date in 1987 that we lost a gem of the industry to “KAAL”. Its 30 years already and we are yet to find an entertainer like him. We still don’t have a singer, actor (brilliant in comedy), composer, song-writer, and finally a producer-director like him. Our own Kishore Kumar.

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.
