Hullo Atuldom

“Atulsongaday”- our favourite blog- is 16200+ posts old. We are still discovering popular songs and exclaiming ‘how come this has not yet been posted’. The song with this post is one that will get similar thoughts in the minds of the regular followers.

It is from a movie that I saw in the theatres at the time of its release and fell in love with its lead actors. Of course, falling in love with the moving images on the silver screen is something that I have been a victim of since “Seeta aur Geeta”, “Aradhana” and all the other movies that fall in my list of personal favourites. Small wonder then that I liked what I saw in “Betaab” and it is in the list of movies that I see every time I come across it. Also, the young star-crossed couple that Amrita Singh -Sunny Deol portrayed looked every bit in love with each other, that means they are good actors who did justice to Rahul Rawail’s (the director) judgement in casting them. Finally, ‘star-crossed lovers’ has always been a hit-formula in Indian movies and I am a fan of that formula since “Bobby”.

“Betaab” (1983) was produced by Vijayta Films which is essentially Dharmendra’s production house and Bikram Singh Dehal was the producer. Javed Akhtar was the writer, Anand Bakshi the lyricist and RD Burman was the music director. Shabbir Kumar (for whom this was a breakthrough movie) and Lata Mangeshkar were the playback singers. Nirupa Roy and Shammi Kapoor played parents, Prem Chopra the spoilsport, and Annu Kapoor, Birbal, Sunder etc were in supporting roles.

Interestingly, there is a scene in the start of the movie, where Amrita Singh (Roma Singh/Dingy in the movie) goes to fill petrol and the person who played the petrol pump attendant was actor Sunder’s son. That scene was to show the haughtiness of Roma’s character who later gets tamed and toned down after falling in love with Sunny. The two families are shown to be old-time friends who part ways and when Sunny’s family falls on bad times, Roma’s father, Shammi Kapoor, doesn’t acknowledge them as now they are on different economic levels. The movie travels the usual path of the lovers revolting against the tough father and his restrictions etc. and eventually getting back together for an ‘all is well’ ending.

Amrita Singh, who was a debutant in “Betaab” alongwith Sunny Deol, has her birthday today. And she is not a lady who hides her age and has been bold enough to act in all types of roles. She was amazing as a selfish sister in Deepak Sareen directed and Yash Chopra produced “Aaina” in 1994 and that fetched her the best supporting actor award. She has also enacted a negative character in the television serial “Kaavyanjali” and won an award there too. I saw the movie “2 States” in 2014 just to see her and Revathi (of south films), two actresses of the 80s and 90s whose work I enjoy.

Amrita was a heroine i.e playing a girl in love; screaming when the villain walks in; trying to get in the good books of the hero, his mother and other sundry family members in many of her initial movies. At the same time, she also tried her comic timing in “Chameli Ki Shaadi”; played a girl jilted by her man and still going ahead to give birth to his son in “CID” (1990) where Vinod Khanna was her hero. She has been paired with Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra, Vinod Khanna, Rajesh Khanna, Rajnikant, Raj Babbar, Rishi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Sunny, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie etc. of the next generation. When she co-starred with Shahrukh Khan in “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” she played a grey character and with Salman Khan in “Suryavanshi” she played the wandering ‘atma’ (soul) of a departed princess who is waiting to be re-united with her lover. She has had the guts to play a totally heartless businesswoman in “Kalyug” (2005) which was all about secret cameras, porn videos and international rackets dealing with these crimes. She had a break in her career when she married Saif Ali Khan in the 90s, had kids etc. She returned to face the camera with “23rd March 1931: Shaheed” as Bhagat Singh’s (played by Bobby Deol) mother. Her daughter Sara has made her debut in Bollywood through “Kedarnath” in 2018.

Here is wishing Amrita Singh all happiness and success in her future ventures too with this song that was her debut in Bollywood. This song appears in parts in the movie with the two also running around as kids when this song plays in the background (just remembered this bit.)

Regulars on the blog would have noticed that I was looking for movies where only one song was posted. Recently I shared some songs where I tried to add a second song to the ‘one song movies’ on the blog.

Then we also noticed that some movies were standing for a long time with ‘only one song’ represented on the blog for a long time. Some were fortunate to get represented with their second song because of the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ started with ‘2009-2019’ songs (from 02.02.2019).

The blog was started in the year 2008. And had the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ got started in 2018 the movies represented in 2008(and having only one song posted) would also have got reviewed and added with their second song.

So, movies introduced on the blog in 2008 missed the opportunity to get reviewed after ten years (and now we can say for around twelve-thirteen years)

I came across one such movie ‘Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam-1974’ which was introduced on the blog on 07.12.2008.
We added the second song of this movie on 14.12.2020 on the blog. The gap of posting between the two songs of above movie being ‘4390’ days.

So, let us wait and see who the winner is 😊

We are not yet concluding the ‘race’ (list) here, but adding one more movie which for now is already ahead of the ‘Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam’ song.

S.No. Song Title Movie-Year First song Second Song Diff in days
01 Pyaar kiyaa nahin jaata ho jaata hai Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam-1974 07.12.2008 —- —-
Achchha lagta hai ye bholaa bhaala sanwariya ___ 14.12.2020 4390 days
02 Lahron ki tarah yaadein Nishaan-1983 13.08.2008 Being presented today 4540 days

(we will keep updating this list if any other song ‘breaks’ the record of the movie ‘Nishaan’).

The first song from this movie ‘Nishaan-1983’ was posted on the blog on 13.08.2008.

‘Nishaan-1983’ was directed Surendra Mohan for ‘Brar Productions’.

It was produced by B.S. Shaad.

It had Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Rekha, Poonam Dhillon, Amrish Puri, Jeevan, Roopesh Kumar, Geeta Siddharth, Vijay Arora, Birbal, Satyen Kappu, C.S. Dubey, Jankidas, Rajan Haksar, Amarnath Mukherjee, Kamaldeep, Kanchan Mattu, Sarwar Kanwar, Shyam, Anand Girdhar, Shammi, Vijay, Baby Pinki, Master Rizwaan and others.

One known song from this movie ‘lahron ki tarah yaadein’ has been posted on the blog as mentioned above.

This movie had total six songs penned by Gulshan Bawra and composed to music by Rajesh Roshan.

I remember that one more song from this movie i.e., ‘ankhiyon hi ankhiyon mein teri meri baat chali’ was also a popular song and frequently heard on radio (one may find this a typical L-P composition, but it is not 😊).

Another song which I liked from this movie is ‘beliyaa ab ke ye bahaar koi gul nayaa khilaayegi’.

But I am presenting a lesser heard song from this movie which one may find to be a Rajesh Roshan signature composition.

The song is duet song by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar and on screen it is lip-synced by Rekha and Jeetendra respectively.

let us now enjoy today’s song.

Today 4th January’2021 is the twenty-seventh Remembrance Anniversary of ‘Pancham Da- The genius’ or Rahul Dev Burman ‘the prince of music’.

He was born on 27th June’1939 and he passed away on 4th January’1994 at the age of fifty-four only.

On his Remembrance Day today as a tribute to him I am presenting a song sung by him from the 1983 movie ‘Romance’. For today’s occasion I was looking for a sad song and that also from a ‘debutant movie’. This song is a nice composition and picturized on Kumar Gaurav who is seen roaming in the fields, riverside, hilly areas and some picturesque locations (I don’t know which are these places).

The song though hummable will be liked by those only (I think so) who have not found ‘any purpose of life’ or ‘is missing someone or something in his life’😊 and that is why being annoyed with life the song goes ‘ye zindagi kuchh bhi sahi, par ye mere kis kaam ki’.

Otherwise, it is a nice song to listen and sung well by R.D. Burman with his special musical touch and style.

‘Romance-1983’ was directed by Ramanand Sagar for his home productions ‘Sagar Art Enterprises, Bombay’. Ramanand Sagar was also the producer of this movie. It had Shammi Kapoor, Kumar Gaurav, Poonam Dhillon, with Saeed Jaffrey, Helena Luke, Sushma Seth, Prema Narayan, and Tom Alter. They were supported by Viju Khote, Jugnu, Manmauji, Samrat Kapoor, Dr. Madan Kataria, Randhawa, Jawahar Bhan, Chandan, Yogee, Jitu Vyas, Moolchand.

This movie introduced Christopher, Lilli Put, Jillian. Raj Babbar, Ranjeeta and Ram Sethi make friendly appearance in this movie.

Story, Screenplay and dialogues for this movie were written by Mirza Brothers. Editing of this movie was done by Subhash Sehgal.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 12.10.1983.

This movie had five songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by R.D. Burman. Lata Mangeshkar, Amit Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor and R.D. Burman were the playback singers for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by R.D. Burman and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. Music is by R.D. Burman himself as mentioned above.

let us now enjoy today’s song …

Today, December 13th 2020 is the 34th Remembrance Day of Smita Patil who today would have been 65 years of age, perhaps donning the hat of a director.

What an incredible filmy journey Smita Patil had in a short span of about 12 years! She acted in 70 Hindi films of which 18 films were new wave films. In addition, she acted in about a dozen non-Hindi new wave films. At the age of 23, she got her first National Award for the Best Actress for her role in ‘Bhumika’ (1977). After 3 years, she was bestowed with another National Award for the Best Actress in ‘Chakra’ (1980). At the age of 29, she was one of the juries in the Montreal International Film Festival (1984). At the age of 30, She got Padma Shri Award.

She had achieved fame and glory in a short period and left her legacies for the new generations of film enthusiasts to appreciate. Other eminent actresses had taken much longer periods to achieve more or less the same status in their acting career. It is amazing to note that during her 12 years of filmy career, she worked with many eminent directors of new wave/parallel cinemas such as Shyam Benegal, Satyajit Ray (Bangla), Mrinal Sen (Bangla), G Arvindan (Malayalam), T S Nagabharana (Kannada), Jabbar Patel (Marathi), Khwaja Ahmed Abbas, Ketan Mehta (Gujarati and Hindi), Kumar Sahani, Muzaffar Ali, Saeed Mirza, Govind Nihalani etc. In the sphere of mainstream cinema, she acted under the directors such as Raj Khosla, B R Chopra, Ramesh Sippy, Mahesh Bhatt, Prakash Mehra, Mohan Kumar, J Om Prakash, J P Dutta etc.

Smita Patil (17/09/1955 – 13/12/1986) was born in Pune to a freedom fighter turned politician, Shivajirao Patil, and a social worker, Vidyatai Patil. After completion of her school in Pune, Smita Patil joined her parents in Mumbai by which time, her father had become a cabinet minister in Maharashtra. She joined St. Xavier’s College for graduation. It is during her college days she got selected as a Marathi news reader in Mumbai Doordarshan following the start of its telecast in October 1972. (I have also watched her occasionally reading Hindi news as well).

In one of his interviews, Shyam Benegal has revealed that after the successful release of his first film ‘Ankur’ (1974), he had planned for two films for which he was looking for a new girl having an earthly look (colloquially called ‘desi’ look). When he noticed Smita Patil as a Marathi newsreader on Doordarshan. he felt that she had an attractive presence and has the required photogenic face as a village girl. She fitted very well as a second lead in his next film ‘Nishaant’ (1975). Shyam Benegal met Smita’s parents through a common acquaintance. Her parents readily agreed but Smita point-blankly refused to work in films. Her mother, Vidyatai Patil who had seen ‘Ankur’ (1974), didn’t want her to refuse the offer off-hand. It took some time for her mother to convince Smita to work in the film ‘Nishaant’ (1975).

However, before ‘Nishaant’ (1975) could start, Shyam Benegal took her in ‘Charandas Chor’ (1975), a children’s film which would be a sort of familiarisation process for Smita Patil. According to Shyam Benegal, unlike Shabana Azmi, who was a FTII graduate in acting, Smita Patil had no formal training in acting. But she was a quick learner and an intuitive actor. The only problem with her was that she had multiple interests and as such during shooting, her mind would get diverted to activities other than acting. She was an ace photographer and always carried her camera during the shootings. During the break, she would take candid photographs of her co-stars. For the initial period of shooting for ‘Nishaant’ (1975), and ‘Manthan’ (1976), Shyam Benegal was not only the director but also had to behave like her school teacher for imposing the discipline.

Shyam Benegal says that despite all her sundry interest on the sets, Smita gave an excellent performance in ‘Nishaant’ (1975) as well as in ‘Manthan’ (1976). He narrated an anecdote during the shooting of the film in a village near Rajkot. A few college students had come to watch the shooting and were enquiring about the heroine. Smita Patil was sitting with four-five local women squatting against the wall. Someone from the unit pointed out in the direction of Smita Patil to the college students. They refused to believe him saying how could a heroine sit with local women? Her character in the film got so much assimilated with the local women that she could not be recognised as a heroine.

Shyam Benegal had initially considered Shabana Azmi for ‘Bhumika’ (1977). Later on, he felt that Smita’s body language and dialect seemed culturally apt for Hansa Wadkar’s character which required Smita’s visual presence from the beginning to the end. There were contradictions, complexities and also sexuality in the character of Hansa Wadkar and Smita had excellently handled all these in her role which fetched her the National Award for the Best Actress. According to Shyam Benegal, it was only after this award, Smita Patil took the acting career seriously.

After working under the direction of Shyam Bengal in ‘Kondura’ (1978) a bilingual film in Hindi and Telugu, there was a gap of 5 years during which Shyam Benegal had no occasion to take Smita Patil in his films. The reason could be that Shyam Benegal was associated with a couple of high budget films in which Smita Patil did not fit into the character.

‘Mandi’ (1983) was the last film Smita Patil worked under the direction of Shyam Benegal. In my view, this film is the best among Shyam Benegal’s films as also performance-wise the best of Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil for Shyam Benegal. Both of them have situations in the film in which they have to display different moods even in a single scene which only a few actors can perform to create a lasting impression on the audience .

With so much name and fame Smita Patil earned in acting in off-beat films, what were the reasons for her to seek the foray into mainstream commercial cinema? She did not fit into the idioms of commercial cinema. If I have inferred her personality on the basis of the articles written on her, a strong role rather than the money was her consideration to work in the films. I got some explanations for her entry into mainstream commercial cinema from a book ‘Smita Patil – A Brief Incandescence’ (2019) written by Maithili Rao. It was because of an incidence which hurt Smita Patil to such an extent that she decided to work in commercial cinema forthwith.

Sometime in 1981, one eminent successful director known for making ‘middle of the road’ films promised Smita Patil a role which she loved it. Later on, she came to know through the press that she was replaced by an actress who was also a successful star in commercial cinema. Within a few days from this incidence, Smita Patil signed two stupid films on a single day – ‘Badle Ki Aag’ (1982) and another one (probably,’Tajurba’ 1981). She wanted to prove that she was also a star material. Both these films did not fare well on the box office front.

Fortunately for Smita Patil, her next two mainstream films, Praksah Mehra’s ‘Namak Halaal’ (1982) followed by Ramesh Sippy’s ‘Shakti’ (1982), both with Amitabh Bachchan clicked at the box office which made Smita Patil a star-actor. After these successes, she did a spate of mainstream films, the notable films among them being ‘Aaj Ki Aawaaz’ (1984), ‘Ghulaami’ (1985), ‘Aakhir Kyun?’ (1985), ‘Amrit’ (1986). During this period, Smita Patil continued to work in parallel films such as ‘Ardh Satya’ (1983), ‘Tarang’ (1984), ‘Raavan’ (1984), ‘Giddh’ (1984), ‘Debshishu’ (1985) and ‘Mirch Masaala’ (1987). The end result was that in terms of numbers, her mainstream commercial films far exceeded her parallel films.

Smita Patil worked with Raj Babbar for the first time in ‘Tajurba’ (1981). It was during the shooting of ‘Bheegi Palkein’ (1982) when both of them developed a close relationship. Their closeness resulted in working together in as many as 20 films. Their affairs culminated into the marriage. Raj Babbar was already married to Nadira Babbar with two children.

Smita Patil died on December 13, 1986, 15 days after giving birth to her son Pratiek due to complications arising out of childbirth.

Shyam Benegal was back into new wave films by making a triology on Indian Muslim women with ‘Mammo’ (1994), ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996) and ‘Zubieda’ (2001). in a recent interview, he said that after Smita Patil, he has worked with many actresses but none of them came close to the versatilities of Smita Patil.

On the occasion of Smita Patil’s 34th Remembrance Day, I have selected a song from the film ‘Mandi’ (1983) which is directed by Shyam Benegal with Smita Patil in the role of Zeenat. It is a mujra song, ‘chubhti hai ye to nigodi mujhe bhaari angiya’ sung by Asha Bhosle and picturised on Smita Patil. This raunchy song is written by Insha which is set to music by Vanraj Bhatia.

The film starts with this mujra song as credit titles are rolling. One can see Naseeruddin Shah as a worker in the kotha, Shabana Azmi as Madam of the kotha and Harish Patel as police who is watching the mujra through the window. The mujra starts with the classic ‘sit-down’ pose with alluring expressions of Smita Patil. In the last part of the song, she gets up and steps into a vigorous dancing in kathak style.

According to Vanraj Bhatia, Asha Bhosle who had sung many songs for him, refused to sing this song by saying that it was a dirty song. She cancelled the recording three times. It was Ismat Chugtai who convinced her by saying that she had sung many kotha songs. Why not one more? The reason as to why Vanraj Bhatia persisted on Asha Bhosle even after she cancelled the recording three times could be that only Asha Bhosle could do justice to sing to sound like a raunchy song.

Although the name of the lyricist is mentioned as Insha, I feel that he is Syed Insha Allah Khan ‘Insha’ (1756-1817). He had used his nom de plume ‘Insha’ in some of his poems. He had also used in the song under discussion. Insha was a contemporary of Mir Taqi Mir in Mughal court. Later, he shifted to the court of Nawab of Awadh in Lucknow for getting a higher stipend. He was a multilingual poet who wrote poems in Urdu, Persian, Hindi, Punjabi, Kashmiri, Bengali, Marathi etc. I have gone through some of his ghazals and nazms. He seems to be a witty and unconventional poet. His prose work, ‘Rani Ketki Ki Kahaani’ is regarded as the first short story written in Hindi.

The video version has the full song interspersed with some dialogues, while the audio version is without dialogues and does not have the last stanza.

Hullo Atuldom

“Coolie” was released on 2nd December 1983. It was produced by Ketan Desai and directed by Manmohan Desai. Kadar Khan was the script writer as also the dialogue writer. It starred Waheeda Rehman, Rati Agnihotri, Shoma Anand, Rishi Kapoor, Kadar Khan, Satyen Kappu, Goga Kapoor, Suresh Oberoi, Om Shivpuri, Nilu Phule, Ashalata (who passed away recently),and Shubha Khote, Amrish Puri and Mukri in guest appearances. Of course it had Manmohan Desai cast Amitabh Bachchan in the title role with an Eagle as his companion. The Eagle was called Allah Rakha in the movie.

The movie had Kadar Khan give some great dialogues to his characters, some of which were heavy duty and some were funny. For example Iqbal introduces himself with “Humaari taarif zara lambi hai. Bachpan se hain sar pe Allah ka haath aur Allahrakha hai apne saath. Baju pe 786 ka hai billa, 20 number ki bidi peeta hoon. kaam karta hoon coolie ka aur naam hai Iqbal”. He follows it up with “jiske sar pe pad jaaye haath bache na uska ek bhi baal” and that get smirks from the audience. Then during the course of a fight scene with Suresh Oberoi, Amitabh Bachchan picks up a Hammer and Sickle, holds it up in a particular fashion and mouths “Hum mazdooron ka seena lohe ki deewaar hai, aur yeh humaare hathyaar hain. Yeh humara pet paal bhi sakte hain aur tum jaison ka pet phaad bhi sakte hain”.

“Coolie” was a movie that was slammed by the critics as the worst ever etc. but was lapped up by the paying public. It has attained cult status over the years. Puneet Issar was just a villains’ henchman when he was signed for the movie but the fight sequence in which AB was hurt made Puneet Issar famous. And the smart Manmohan Desai froze the scene in the final cut of the movie and a message appears on screen marking it as the shot when AB was injured. Apparently this was done at Amitabh’s behest. That was the kind of relation that AB shared with Manji (as Mamohan Desai was called by his friends).

One thing was on display in 1982. The level of love that the public had for the actor by the name Amitabh Bachchan. When he lay comatose in a Bombay Hospital, a whole nation prayed for him. There were reports of how people made promises to their respective gods and even fulfilled them when he recovered and restarted work on 7th January 1983. It proved that the struggle that he had on the way to superstardom had borne fruit.

Just another matter that he was a good actor who made the incredible seem normal, like fighting a leopard, tiger and a crocodile at times, with bare hands (he was not the first one to do this onscreen) in “Khoon Pasina” and some other movies. He made it seem normal that a roadside orphan could grow up to be a well to-do do-gooder who is even benevolent on the man who insulted him when he was in his teens- remember “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”. He mastered rhythm and could move a leg to music without making a fool of himself. He was appreciated when he tried to sing in his tuneless style to begin with and he has sung around 20-30 songs in his career that started in 1969. Of course he has recited poems in “Kabhi Kabhi” and “Silsila”.

He has had a wide range of roles post 2000 when he switched tracks to play characters that are appropriate to his age. He has co-starred with heroes who are his children’s age group. He is one of the actors of that generation who still has movie-makers seek him with specific roles & movies. The other was Rishi Kapoor.

Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan have acted together in a number of movies first time being in “Kabhi Kabhi” 1976. Their first successes also came in the same year-1973. Rishi Kapoor’s “Bobby” and Amitabh Bachchan’s “Zanjeer”. The two were long time friends and the last time they collaborated was in “102 not out” in 2018.

This jodi has been my personal favourite from the first time I saw them. And it is but natural that I present this song of “Coolie”. It shows the two actors’ comic side. The two of them are not eyeing the same girl. Their target is the prize money that the girl’s father Mukri promises for bringing the girl back home. She has this penchant for running away from home and is in cahoots with Sunny (Rishi) who dons a new getup every time he drops her home. Only this time Iqbal has also spotted the girl and decides to drop her home and claim the prize money.

What I like about the song is the various outfits and wigs that AB and Chintu use. The detailing that has gone into draping Chintu with a dhoti that has extra width to cover the stilts when he is trying to compete with the elephant’s height. And also the pronounced jerks that AB and Shoma Anand experience when on the elephant which at first feels that they are having a camel ride.

This song is in the voices of Shailendra Singh and Shabbir Kumar. This movie was the first time AB had a different voice.
All in all a fun song to celebrate the 78th birthday of the superstar of the millennium who has also been given the epithet BigB.

11/10/2020 – 78th Birthday of Amitabh Bachchan
———————————————————————-

A few days ago I saw this whatapp forward video, where a few Africans were singing this hindi song “rote rote hansnaa seekho hanste hanste rona”. This song is a known song, often heard on radio, but not recently seen or heard.

I knew it was a song sung on screen by Amitabh Bachchan. I checked the blog, to find it was not posted. This is a well-known song from 1983 film “Andhaa Kanoon”, where Amitabh Bachchan’s role was supposedly a guest appearance. Getting the lyrics of this song was a breeze, as I knew the lyrics and lines of stanza’s.

This song is a multiple version song with Kishore Kumar happy version, Kishore Kumar sad version and Baby Rajeshwari sad version. I was not able to find the audio/video of sad version by Baby Rejeshwari. Music and lyrics are Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi, respectively.

Trivia about the film:

1.This film was a remake of the hit Tamil movie “Sattam Oru Iruttarai” (1981) starring Vijayakanth. The Tamil film was also remade in Telugu as “Chattaniki Kallu Levu” (1981), in Malayalam as “Maattuvin Chattangale” (1982) and in Kannada as “Nyaya Ellide” (1982). It was also remade in Tamil with the same title in 2012.

2.Rajinikanth made his Hindi film debut in this film.

3.The villains in this film, played by Prem Chopra, Danny Denzongpa and Pran, were named Amar, Akbar and Anthony after the film “Amar Akbar Anthony” (1977).

4.Amitabh Bachchan’s character in this film was named after the poet and lyricist Jan Nisar Akhtar.

5.Amitabh Bachchan had signed this film for a guest appearance. However, as the film’s shooting progressed his role was increased till it became an important supporting role.

Songs already posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Ye andhaa kaanoon hai 11 October 2010
Meri behna deewaani hai 13 August 2011

That’s a typical of Amitabh Bachchan guest appearance where he is getting to sing the title song as well as a multipurpose song. It is not clear why his character in the movie was named after Jan Nisar Akhtar.

There are many names to given to Amitabh, like Big B, Shehenshah, Angry young man and star of the millennium. Big B would be the based on this stature of being a superlative performer and his authoritative voice plus the physical presence of screen. Shehenshah, is the title of 1988 film directed by Tinnu Anand, whose story is credited to Jaya Bachchan. The angry young man was the creation of Saim-Javed duo of script writers. Star of the millennium is a bit tricky, as millennium is period of thousand years. So starting in 1969, he has less than 30 odd years of stardom in the millennia of 1000-2000 and next millennia is now 20 years old. So technically this superstar is riding in a millennia to the next. Not that it matters to me as such, but things like titles also need to be logical. However unfashionable it might be.

Amitabh Bachchan is singing this song to stop his daughter from crying. His wife is played by Madhavi, who is also present in the song. Judging from the sad version, tragedy strikes the happy family, so this song is likely in flashback.

Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 85
————————————————–

Atul ji has rightly mentioned in his post regarding BTYC posts coming up regularly, having taken precedence over other projects in the process. I think, on the other hand it is also helping bring movies bring closer to ‘Yippeeee’ and also helping movies getting noticed after an interval of couple or few years where the movies earlier were having some songs posted and took a back-seat thereafter without any reason.

In some cases where many movies made their debut ten years ago and were forgotten thereafter after getting only one song posted, the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ has been like a ‘boon’ for them. In turn it also gives a chance to readers to visit the songs of movie like these and recall their songs which were played then and also recall some fond memories if any.

Consider the case of one of the two movies due for ‘BTYC’ today – ‘Mahaan-1983’ which made its debut on the blog ten years back and so far, has only one song posted on the blog.

Let us have a look on the six songs posted on the blog ten years back on this day on
22.09.2010;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Raaton ki neend chheen lee aankhon ke intezaar ne Shokhiyaan-1951 All Songs covered
Teri kaafir nigaah kar gayi dil ko tabaah Miss Coca Cola-1955 All Songs covered
Yaad karoon tori batiyaan Mr Lambu-1956 All Songs covered
Tum aur ham bhool ke gham Fashion-1957 06 songs posted
Mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main Aaj Aur Kal-1963 All Songs covered
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai Mahaan-1983 01 song posted

‘Mahaan-1983’ had some good songs like the one ‘Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai’ already posted on the blog and ‘pyaar mein dil pe maar de goli’ being the most popular song from the movie. ‘Ye din to aata hai ek din jawaani mein’ sung by Pancham and Asha Bhonsle was the other song frequently played and like then.

Music for ‘Mahaan-1983’ was composed by R.D. Burman.

I had not watched this movie then and have not watched it so far, so can’t say much about the movie.

When I noticed that this movie was due for BTYC today I went through its songs and I have selected one other song (which required more time from me to complete the ‘baat’:) ), but then noticed this lesser heard (I don’t remember to have heard this song earlier) song sung by Kishore Kumar and have selected this song for today’s presentation.

The song is lip-synced on screen by Amitabh Bachchan and also seen in picturization of the song is Zeenat Aman and also seen is a Puppet (of Ramdas Padhye the famous ventriloquist, I guess I am correct) with them.

‘Mahaan-1983’ had total seven songs in it all written by Anjaan and composed by R.D. Burman.

So far, only one song from ‘Mahaan-1983’ have been posted on the blog;

Song Posted On
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai 22.09.2010

I am not giving details about the movie and other songs too, and holding them for a detailed post with other song of the movie to be presented in the future on the blog.

(Unlike the song which finishes ‘aadhi baat’ I am not completing my ‘baat’ here)

Let us now enjoy today’s song from this movie. 🙂

(Lyrics noted are as per audio link which has three stanzas whereas the video link doesn’t have the second stanza as given in the audio link.)

Hullo Atuldom

“Arpan” (1983) was produced and directed by J. Om Prakash who passed away exactly a year and month ago on 7th August 2019. His movies had titles mostly starting with an “A”, for example “Aap Ki Kasam”, Aakraman”, “Aaye Din Bahaar Ke”, “Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke” etc. He was the presenter of two Rajesh Khanna starrers “Raja Rani” & “Aan Milo Sajna” both produced by Jagdish Kumar and director of the first-ever movie that his son-in-law Rakesh Roshan produced “Bhagwan Dada”. He was also the producer of “Aandhi”.

He began his career as a producer with “Aas Ka Panchhi” through his production house Filmyug in 1961 and followed it up with “Ayee MIlan Ki Bela” “Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke” “Aankhon Aakhon Mein” etc turning director with “Aap Ki Kasam”. He was a clerk in a film distributors office in Lahore and ended up being a manager there before coming to Bombay post Partition of India.

He had a keen ear for good music that were lyrical and melodious. Of course his movies were mostly romantic and filled with family-emotions and values. At least that is what I remember from what I have seen in his films of the ’80s. He was associated with 23 movies from the ’60s to his last released in 2001- a Rahul Roy starrer called “Afsana Dilwalon Ka” post which he retired. Laxmikant-Pyarelal were the music directors of 12 of these movies .

The coming together of this triumvirate gave us ‘Suno Sajna Papihe ne’, ‘Saathiya Nahi Jaana’, ‘Achha toh hum chalte hain’, ‘Aadmi Musafir hain’, ‘Fauji gaya jab gaon mein’ etc etc. But if I am asked to choose songs that this association gave and make my playlist it will include ‘Palat meri jaan tere kurbaan’, ‘Yeh mausam aaya hain’, ‘Badra chhaye ke jhoolein pad gaye’, and some not-so-popular ones like ‘Somwaar ko hum mile’, ‘I am in love you are in love’, some soulful numbers like ‘Mere dushman tu meri dosti ko tarse’, ‘Yeh shama toh jali roshni ke liye’ and suddenly I will find enough songs to play for almost half a day and more. I notice that in mentioning songs that I like I haven’t touched a single movie of the ’80s like ‘Aas Paas’, ‘Arpan’, ‘Aasha’, ‘Apna Bana Lo’ etc.; these movies would feature as whole albums on my list.

So coming back to “Arpan”, I find that it is one-song away from Yyiippeeeehood. That is the reason to choose a song from that film to wish Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma on his 80th birthday. Of late he has been making appearances on some television channels as guest-of-honour to judge music contests. And that gives us, his fans, opportunities to hear anecdotes of his long musical career that began when he was around 12 years old. He was the son of trumpeter Ramprasad Sharma who was his first guru. He began learning to play the violin from the age of 8 and was further coached by the Goan musician Anthony Gonsalves and it is believed that “My name is Anthony Gonsalves” from Manmohan Desai’s ‘Amar Akbar Anthony” was the music duo’s way of acknowledging the tutor.

Pyarelal’s brothers were also musicians and his brother Gorakh Sharma was an expert at string instruments like Bass Guitar, Mandolin, Rubaab, Electric Guitar and had the opportunity to play in the song ‘Chaudvin Ka Chaand’ under Ravi’s music direction. Pyarelal’s other brothers Ganesh, Anand and others were all into music and Ganesh was a music director for movies made in the late ’60s through the ’70s.

“Arpan” may have been a movie which many followers of this blog would have given a miss thinking that it was Produced in Madras as that was the period when Jeetendra was deep into acting in films made by production houses of Madras and Hyderabad. Also the general story-line of the movie gives us that impression.

The movie was essentially a tearjerker where Reena Roy played Jeetendra’s fiance, who is forced to marry her boss Raj Babbar as punishment for having slapped him in the office and not allowing him to molest her etc. To further his intention, he kidnaps Jeetendra’s sister’s (Preeti Sapru) boyfriend (Shashi Puri) and keeps him captive till Reena agrees and marries him. This makes her a ‘bad character’ in the eyes of Jeetu’s mom (Dina Pathak) but only Jeetu’s friend (Sujit Kumar), sister and jija know the real reason for Reena’s marriage to Raj Babbar. The movie moves forward with Jeetu meeting Parveen Babi, marrying her, getting her pregnant etc. Then he happens to stumble upon Reena’s reason of marrying Raj post which there is misunderstanding with his wife, Reena becoming a widow, Parveen Babi loosing her baby so on and so forth. That is why I said that this was a tearjerker. Essentially a movie full of calamities for the heroine and it comes to an end with Reena consuming poison, making her way to Jeetu’s home and handing over her baby to Parveen Babi. Ultimate qurbaani so that her ex-lover can live happily ever-after.

Today’s song is a duet by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar, written by Anand Bakshi (who else) and on-screen couple are Preeti Sapru and Shashi Pur.

Wishing Pyarelalji(DoB 3 September 1940) a very Happy Birthday.

ya chhup baithhe door se sajni
ke mann ko tadpaayenge ae
sajni saajan se phir hum
miyaan biwi ban jaayenge
teri god mein munna hoga
mere honthon pe fariyaad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad

Blog Day :

4421 Post No. : 15832

Today, August 25th is 51st Remembrance Day of Shaayar-e-Inquilaab, Makhdoom Mohiuddin, an Urdu poet, a dramatist and a politician whose name may not ring bell for many of the lovers of Hindi film songs. They may, however, be aware of a couple of his popular Hindi film songs such as ek chameli ke mandve tale from’Chaa Chaa Chaa’ (1964) and aapki yaad aati rahi raat bhar from ‘Gaman’ (1979).

Makhdoom Mohiuddin (04/02/1908 – 25/08/1969) was born in Medak in the then Hyderabad state (present day Telangana). He belonged to the family of religious teachers and preachers. He lost his father, when he was 6. Subsequently, his mother remarried and went away in her separate way making Makhdoom Mohiuddin almost like an orphan. He was brought up by his paternal uncle. It is said that Makhdoom was influenced by his uncle’s leaning towards the leftist ideology.

After completion of his school in the various villages in Hyderbabd State, Makhdoom moved to Hyderabad in 1929 and completed graduation and post-graduation from Osmania University by 1936. During this period in Osmania University, he wrote dramas in which he also acted in them. He got employed as an Urdu lecturer in the City College of Hyderabad. Later on, Hyderabad was to become his residence from where he got involved in the fight against British Rule for which he was jailed. He founded the Communist Party of India (CPI) in Hyderabad State and became the union leader for Electricity, Railways and Municipal workers under AITUC (the union wing of CPI). He was instrumental in creating the Hyderabad chapter of the Progressive Writers Association. In 1946-47, he joined the Telangana Agitation against the Nizam of the then Hyderabad State. After the police action against the Nizam of Hyderabad and its merger with India in 1948, Makhdoom Mohiuddin led the Teleangana Peasants’ Movements for land reforms. He successfully went on hunger strike for making available rice at a fair price for the lower strata of the population. Before that Makhdoom had led an arm rebellion against the Government for which he went underground for nearly 5 years.

In 1952, when the first general elections were announced, Communits Party decided to give up the arm rebellion and instead decided to participate in the election. Makhdoom Mohiuddin successfully contested the first general election as a candidate of CPI from Huzurnagar for Hyderabad State assembly and became the leader of the opposition. From 1956 until his death in 1969, he was the member of legislature council of Andhra Pradesh.

In his youth, Makhdoom was influenced by Munshi Premchand’s writings as also of Urdu poets like Daagh Dehlvi, Amir Minai and later Akhtar Sheerani and Hasrat Mohani. With the success of his play ’Murhsid’, during his university days, Makdhoom became a known personality among the circle of artists and intellectuals. During this time, he came into contact with Sarojini Naidu and though her with some of the top political leaders of that time including Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru.

In the pre-independent India, Makhdoom found time to write poetry in jails and during the period he was underground. Post-independence, he had an active literary life by reciting his poetry in political rallies and mushairas. During this period, he published his second collections of poems called ‘Gul-e-Tar’ (1961), the first being ‘Surkh Savera’ (1944). His poems are mostly in the genre of revolutionary and romance.

Makhdoom Mohiuddin died of heart-attack in Delhi on August 25, 1969. He was buried in Hyderabad. At the time of his death, he did not have a house of his own. The Communist Party raised money to buy a small house for Makhdoom’s family in Hyderabad. As a tribute to Makhdoom, Faiz Ahmed Faiz wrote a ghazal, taking the refrain from Makhdoom’s ghazal ‘aap ki yaad aati rahi raat bhar’ and in the same metre with a title ‘Makhdoom Ki Yaad Mein’:

आपकी याद आती रही रात-भर
चाँदनी दिल दुखाती रही रात-भर

गाह जलती हुई, गाह बुझती हुई
शम-ए-ग़म झिलमिलाती रही रात-भर

कोई ख़ुशबू बदलती रही पैरहन
कोई तस्वीर गाती रही रात-भर

फिर सबा सायः-ए-शाख़े-गुल के तले
कोई क़िस्सा सुनाती रही रात-भर

जो न आया उसे कोई ज़ंजीरे-दर
हर सदा पर बुलाती रही रात-भर

एक उमीद से दिल बहलता रहा
इक तमन्ना सताती रही रात-भर

After going through the chronicles of Makhdoom’s life, especially during the pre-independent India, it is admirable that he could find time to write both romantic as well as revolutionary poems in the midst of a very active political life. Makhdoom Mohiuddin’s personality has been best summed up by Khwaja Ahmed Abbas as under:

He was a glowing flame as also cool drops of dew. He was the call of revolution as also the soft tinkling of anklet. He was knowledge, he was action, he was wisdom. He was the gun of the revolutionary guerrilla and also the sitar of musician. He was the odour of gun powder and the fragrance of jasmine.

Makhdoom Mohiuddin did not specifically write lyrics for any Hindi films. However, his published poems were used in the films in ‘Usne Kaha Thha’ (1960), ‘Chaa Chaa Chaa’ (1964), ‘Insaaf Kahaan Hai’ (UR, 1978), ‘Gaman’ (1979), ‘Baazar’ (1982) and ‘Mandi’ (1983).

On the occasion of 51st Remembrance Day of Makhdoom Mohiuddin, I am presenting his ghazal ‘ishq ke shole ko bhadkaao ke kuchh raat kate’ which was used in the film ‘Mandi’ (1983). The ghazal is rendered by Asha Bhosle which is set to music by Vanraj Bhatia. In the film, the song is picturised on Smita Patil who sings for about one minute of duration in tune but without the accompanying music. The audio version contains the full ghazal with orchestration. unfortunately, video clip is not separately available online.

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s post is because of this song. This song reminded me how amused I used to be whenever I saw it.

Atulji has mentioned the starcast of “Tohfa”, the movie of which the above song is. He has mentioned that he felt the props comprising of saris was imaginative. If he had seen the movie he would have understood the reason for the ‘Sari’ prop. I am sure there will be some followers of the blog who have not seen the movie and definitely some followers would have seen. They will remember that in the scene preceding the song Jeetendra has gifted Jaya Prada a decent looking sari as he is appreciative of her way of taking care of his mother in his absence. She is in awe of him and when his mother asks her if she would like to be her daughter-in-law she fantasizes the song. Like I mentioned to my mother “ek saree mila toh itne saree khwaab mein aa gaye”; how typical!!!! (I had wanted to write all this in the comments that day, but reserved it for this post)

In all this Jeetendra has not been consulted by his mother (Urmila Bhatt). If she had, he would have told her that he was in love with another girl from the village. Now who is this other girl? She is Lalitha (Sridevi) who is also Janaki’s (Jaya Prada’s) sister. Janaki has been doing odd jobs around the village and helping out in households so that she can look after herself and her sister. Her only aim being that her sister should graduate and have a good life. Without knowing that Lalitha and Ram babu (Jeetendra) are already in love Janaki entrusts Rambabu with the responsibility of helping Lalitha with her studies. This gives them enough time to flirt and romance. One such meeting of Rambabu and Lalitha happens near a pond and he accidentally (may be on purpose too, don’t remember) kicks her Kalash (brass pot) into the water. The song that follows has numerous Kalash as prop. I am sure this idea was borrowed from the super-hit song of “Himmatwala” (1983).

Both these movies had many things in common.
(1) Music director was Bappi Lahiri. (2) Lyricist was Indeevar. (3) Hero was Jeetendra. (4) Both were made in South essentially as remakes of Telugu movies. (5) Both were directed by K. Raghavendra Rao: ‘Tohfa’ being a remake of his Telugu hit ‘Devatha’ released in 1982 & ‘Himmatwala’ remake of ‘Ooruki Monagadu’ a 1981 release. (6) Kadar Khan was the dialogue writer of both. (7) Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and S P Balasubramaniam were the playback singers.

The only thing that I would love to find out is who was the choreographer for the two movies. These movies had some unique dance steps almost equivalent of Aerobics. That may be an explanation of why Jeetendra looked so fit in those movies. 😉

A post about either ‘Himmatwala’ or ‘Tohfa’ or any of the few 10-15 movies of that period that were made with Jeetu by these South Indian makers will be incomplete without mentioning one more common factor- the trio of Kadar Khan- Shakti Kapoor- Asrani in the supporting cast. Jeetu used to say that he used to like working in the southern industry setup as they were very organized and punctual in their working. That may also be an explanation to why so many of Jeetu’s contemporary actors also tried their luck down south with positive results.

This discussion about the South Indian film industry is getting a bit too long and I am missing the purpose of this post.

As I was writing I made a discovery:- “Himmatwala” is yet to make a debut on the blog. I couldn’t believe it and made a call to Atulji to confirm. Now I am in a fix, which song to have with this post. The song from “Tohfa” which I have described or its inspiration from “Himmawala”. And both songs feature the birthday girl under discussion. She was beautiful in both.

So here is wishing the beautiful Sridevi (13 august 1963- 24 feb 2018) was with us and turned 56 on 13 August 2020. Let us think of her with this colourful song that made her the darling of the audience. The purists may have run down the songs of this period but we must admire the effort and imagination in erecting a set with pots and cart wheels. Also I admire Sridevi that she has danced barefoot in what must have been scorching hot sand.
