Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 125
————————————————————————————–

Hullo Atuldom

“Sadma” (1983) was produced by Raj N. Sippy & Romu N. Sippy, directed by Balu Mahendra and had lyrics & dialogues by Gulzar. Ilaiyaraaja was the music director who used Suresh Wadkar, Yesudas, Asha Bhonsle, Sridevi and Kamal Haasan as playback singers. The following songs of the movie are present on the blog.

6964 Surmayee ankhiyon mein nanha munna ek sapna de ja re Multiple version song Yesudas 7 November 2012
17218 Ye hawa ye fizaa Asha Bhonslr 7 november 2022

“Sadma” had a cast of Sridevi, Silk Smitha, Leela Mishra, Ashalata Wabgaonkar, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Arvind Deshpande, Paintal, Gulshan Grover, Somayajulu and Kamal Haasan. The film was a remake of the Tamil film “Moondram Pirai” (1982) which also had Kamal and Sridevi.

A small trivia about this movie is that (future maestro) A R Rehman had worked as a keyboard player for this film.

Another trivia is that this was the debut -in Hindi- for Iliaraaja, Balu Mahendra and Silk Smitha. It was the only film where Kamal Haasan and Sridevi acted together in Hindi even though they were a popular pair in South Indian Cinema.

It was the story of the relationship shared by a guileless lonely school teacher and a young woman who has regressed to her childhood due to an accident that has caused retrograde amnesia. The school teacher rescues the girl from a brothel and takes her with him to Ooty, where he takes good care of her and eventually manages to treat her back to normalcy with the help of his friendly neighbour and a local medicine man. But the outcome of this treatment is that the girl goes back to her parents and forgets the school teacher who had looked after her in the interim period.

The melodious lullaby from this movie surmayee-ankhiyon-mein-nanha-munna-ek-sapna-de-ja-re was posted on the blog on this dated in 2012. A mail from Prakashchandraji drew my attention to it, so this movie is in the running for Blog-Ten-Year-Challenge 2012-2022. The following were the songs that were posted on the blog on this-date-that-year. Here are the posts of 7th November 2012 and their yyiippeeee status.

Here is the next song from “Sadma”- it is in the voices of Kamal Haasan and Sridevi. It is story sung as a song by Kamal Haasan’s character to entertain the child in the young lady. Sridevi is extremely cute in this and so is Kamal Haasan. The song was one that was by heart for me back then, subsequently (post marriage i.e.) I heard and learnt the Tamil song too in the equivalent situation; that song was also sung by Sridevi and Kamal Haasan. I found that Gulzarsaab has written the Hindi lyrics giving the same meaning as the Tamil original.

Incidentally, Kamal Haasan turns a year older on 7th November. Here is wishing this actor, filmmaker, screenwriter, playback singer, television presenter and politician a Very Happy Birthday. His last movie released this year on 3rd June and it was his 232nd release. May he continue to entertain us.

Editor’s note:-Today, two different songs rom “Sadmaa”(1983) get covered as part of Blog Ten Year Challenge. with this, all the six songs of “Sadmaa”(1983) get covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

That movie is “Sadmaa”(1983).

Hullo Atuldom

Top three actors of the golden era of Hindi cinema (from mid 1940s to late 1960s) were Dilip-Dev-Raj. They were nearly of the same age though their debut years were “Jwar Bhata” (Dilip Kumar) in 1944, “Hum Ek Hain” which came in 1946 (Dev Anand) and “Valmiki” also in 1946 which had Raj Kapoor in his first adult role but it was a tiny role. The three of them carved their own path and were the dominant stars of the Golden Era. Raj Kapoor went on to become a much-acclaimed actor-director earning him the title of ‘The greatest Showman’, Dev Anand also became an actor-director and was usually associated with slick and stylish city-based films and became popular for his trendy fashion sense as well, and Dilip Kumar came to be hailed as the greatest actor and set a high bar for future generations to emulate.

However, ironically all three never got the opportunity to come together on screen and act in a single film. Maybe no director or story writer could conceive a script to bring these stars together. However, there were two films where two of the three acted as co-stars and these two films therefore are rare treasures to be appreciated and preserved for this unique aspect.

The above are the thoughts expressed by a blogger in this post.

I had similar thoughts about the troika of the 1970s Jeetendra- Amitabh Bachchan- Rajesh Khanna and have stated it in this post. On further rewinding I recalled “Anand” (1970), “Namak Haram” (1973), “Gehri Chaal” (1973) & “Dharam Kaanta” (1982). That is a list of movies which had Amitabh Bachchan & Rajesh Khanna; Jeetendra & Amitabh Bachchan; and Rajesh Khanna & Jeetendra. But there were non after these. I am sure, readers will agree that it was a loss for Hindi Movie buffs. Here I would like to mention that Amitabh Bachchan was the last to make his debut in Hindi films; the other two had their first releases in 1964 and 1966.

This was a post to celebrate Jeetendra turning 80. With today’s post we are wishing The Big B- as many of his fans address him- on turning 80. He is still very active and his last movie released on 7th October.

For the last 10-15 years he has been playing roles of older characters but mostly roles specially written keeping his abilities in mind. “Piku” one of his recent movies had him play an eccentric 70 year old father of an architect (Deepika Padukone), living in Delhi. His act of the Hypochondriac with chronic constipation, who traces every problem to his bowel movements is a standout from his recent movies. In 2020, we saw him play a stingy old ghar jamai Chunnan ‘Mirza’ Nawab in ‘Gulabo Sitabo”. That role won him a Critics Best Actor award at the 66th Filmfare Awards. This man is still getting roles which get him awards.

Since 2000 he has been the host of the Indian version of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” i.e. “Kaun Banega Crorepati?” (KBC for short) and people who know me know that I am addicted to that show. But then my family and friends will say that I am addicted to anything that so much as shows Amitabh Bachchan’s shadow. I will stop any job at hand if I spot “Sholay”, “Deewar”, “Amar Akbar Anthony”, “Khuddar”, “Trishul”, “Don”, “Satte Pe Satta”, “Mahaan” and “Bhootnath”, “Piku”, “Black”, “Ab Tumhaare Hawaale Watan Saathiyo” and most of the 200 movies (maybe I will give a few of his initial movies a miss) that he has acted in, over the last 53 years. And when there is such a huge library of movies and songs to choose from getting the one that highlights the person’s abilities is not easy.
The song that I have chosen shows Amitabh Bachchan with Aruna Irani who incidentally was the first heroine who played AB Sr’s romantic interest in the 1972 released “Bombay To Goa”. There is an interview of Aruna Irani that keeps popping up on YouTube where she speaks of how uncomfortable AB Sr. used to be in the dance sequences of “Bombay To Goa”. AB Sr. was always good at action, emotion, comedy etc; today’s song will show the improvement that had come in his dancing over the years.

The song is from the 1983 released “Mahaan” which was directed by S. Ramanathan. If I am not wrong he had directed “Bombay To Goa” also. “Mahaan” had AB Sr. in a triple role of father and sons who are twins. Waheeda Rehman, Zeenat Aman and Parveen Babi played the heroines. Amjad Khan led the brigade of villains that included Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Sujit Kumar, Mac Mohan. Ashok Kumar, Mukri, Urmila Bhatt, Aruna Irani and Meenakshi (or was it Nandita Thakur) who formed the rest of the cast. The songs were written by Anjaan and RD Burman was the music director. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, RD Burman and Amitabh Bachchan were the playback singers used.

Happy 80th Birthday to the Darling of the masses. Happy Birthday to the Big B. Happy Birthday to Amitabh Bachchan.

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 10
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Welcome all to this post which again is coming after a ‘long gap’ in this series. Well, I hope to conclude this series too at the earliest possible 🙂 .

In this tenth episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna – the Phenomenon’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies in the year 1983. This was the year of Rajesh Khanna. He was back on the top with a bang. I don’t know if I should say this that he was reinstated as the ‘King of Bollywood’ once again.

The successes of the movies ‘Avtaar’, ‘Sautan’, and to an extent of the movie ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’ brought Kaka back into the limelight again. Another movie ‘Nishaan’ starring Kaka which was also released during this year 1983 also performed well at the box-office. Though he had delivered some versatile performances and kept doing different roles during the period 1975 to 1978 he was still far away from that level of success which he had tasted before.

He finally got a big boost in 1983 after his continued good performances, critically acclaimed performances and some commercially hit performances in the previous years i.e. from 1979 to 1982. Hit movies like ‘Amardeep’ (1979), ’Thodisi Bewafaai’ (1980); critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose’ (1980), ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980); successful movies like ‘Bandish’ in 1980; and then multi-starrer hits like ‘Qudrat’ in 1981, and ‘Raajput’, ‘Ashaanti’, and ‘Dharam Kaanta’ in 1982 had finally paid off. With two back-to-back hits – ‘Avtaar’ and ‘Sautan’, where Kaka was the main lead and a semi-hit like ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’, brought a new life to Kaka’s filmi career or his ‘second innings’ as it is generally said.

In the year 1983 the following five movies of Rajesh Khanna were released. Although the movie ‘Baabu’ was passed by Censor Board in 1983, I remember it was released in theaters in 1985. Knowledgeable readers can throw more light on this.

Sl. No. Movie Title Director Censor Date
01 Agar Tum Na Hote Lekh Tandon 27.10.1983
02 Avtaar Mohan Kumar 27.01.1983
03 Baabu^ A.C. Trilokchander 01.11.1983
04 Nishaan Surendra Mohan 06.01.1983
05 Sautan Sawan Kumar 24.05.1983

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Avtaar’. And since this year 1983 was a special year for Kaka, I would like to present more posts covering songs from this year. Let us see how it works.

‘Avtaar’ made its debut on the blog on 27.08.2012 with this song “Ho Ooperwaale Tera Jawaab Nahin” and I would like to quote below what Atul ji had written about this movie of Rajesh Khanna.

“Avtaar” (1983) was a movie of Rajesh Khanna during the second innings of his acting career when he was no longer a superstar. The movies in which Rajesh Khanna acted during this phase won critical acclaim though even if Rajesh Khanna came nowhere close to regaining his lost crown.

 

‘Avtaar’ was produced and directed by Mohan Kumar for his home productions Emkay Enterprises. It had Rajesh Khanna, Shabana Azmi, Sachin, AK Hangal, Sujit Kumar, Rajni Sharma, Madhu Malini, Yunus Parvez, Shashi Puri, Gulshan Grover, Pichoo Kapoor, Ranjan Grewal, Preeti Sapru and others. Madan Puri had a guest appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Mohan Kumar and Mushtaq Jalili. Screenplay of this movies was written by Mohan Kumar and dialogues were written by Mushtaq Jalili. Editing of this movie was done by Pratap Bhatt. It was passed by Censor Board on 27.01.1983. HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) mentions in the foot note of this movie page that this film was re-certified with English sub-titles by Censor Board on 06.05.1983.

The movie has five songs (including one two-part song) penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. So far two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. This is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Suresh Wadkar, Alka Yagnik, and Mahendra Kapoor. This song is picturized on Shashi Puri-Preeti Sapru, Gulshan Grover-Rajni Sharma. Both couples are lip syncing the voices of Suresh Wadkar and Alka Yagnik. Mahendra Kapoor’s voice is used for background score where we can see Rajesh Khanna working hard in his own garage and preparing himself for a greater challenge.

In the movie this song happens when Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi have left their home as their sons have betrayed them. Sachin (Sewak) accompanies them and arranges a temporary shelter for them. Not only this, after listening the conversation between his master and bibi ji he understands what his master needs. He then donates his blood and from the money for the blood, he buys aujaar (tools) for his master so that he can start his own garage. Rajesh Khanna has an uphill task from here to turn the fortunes while his sons are enjoying with their friends. That is where this song takes place, and we have some meaningful lyrics to listen.

That was all around forty years back now.

And if we go back fifty years i.e. to the year 1973 we have the following movies of Rajesh Khanna released in that year.

Today 9th March’2022 is the one hundred and fifth birth anniversary of poet-lyricist Om Prakash Bhandari, popularly known to us as Qamar Jalalabadi (9th March 1917 – 9th January 2003).

On our blog, over four hundred songs written by him are already posted. As per blog statistics over three hundred songs penned by him are yet to be posted on the blog. We will be listening to them and bringing them here on the blog as ‘time’ and ‘circumstances permit us. 😊

As a tribute to him I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Painter Babu-1983’. This particular song was lying ready with me for several years. However, I was not aware of the lyricist for this song, as it was not mentioned in HFGK. I had also mentioned the same in my earlier post with a song from this same movie.

However, it so happened that I went through the Vinyl/LP cover of this movie ‘Painter Babu-1983’ just now and I got to know that today’s song is written by Qamar Jalalabadi. I am taking this opportunity to share this song.

‘Painter Babu-1983’ was directed by Ashok for ‘V.I.P. Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Manoj Kumar who also wrote this movie and had done the editing of this movie too.

It had Rajiv Goswami (debutant and in title role), Meenakshi Sheshadri (debutant), Neelima (debutant), and Virendra Sharma (also a debutant). They were supported by Rakesh Bedi, Madan Puri, Om Shivpuri, Krishna Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Bandini, Ram Mohan, Kamaldeep, Bharat Kapoor, C.S. Dubey, Birbal, Lalita Kumari, Meena T., Tun Tun, Sundar Taneja, Rajan Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Shyam Jeet, Walia, Heera, Bhinda, Leela Mishra, Jankidas, Sudhir, Mohan Choti, Shammi, Dinesh Hingoo, Aruna Irani, Kamini Kaushal, and others.

Singer Mahendra Kapoor had a special role in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 31.03.1983.

This movie had as many as seven songs written by three lyricists viz. Manoj Kumar, Qamar Jalalabadi and Qateel Shifai.

The list of the songs in this movie is as given below. (The songs appearing below may not be in the same sequence of their appearing in the movie. This will corrected in the future posts on this movie song.)

S.No. Song Title Lyricist Posted On
01 Ho, ham kuchh bhi rakh le naam uskaa Qamar Jalalabadi
02 Painter Babu, I love you Manoj Kumar
03 Kab talak shamma jali yaad nahin Qatil Shifai 11.07.2012
04 O mere sajan barsaat mein aa Qamar Jalalabadi, Manoj Kumar 25.05.2021
05 Yaar kapadaa shaandaar hai Qamar Jalalabadi
06 Hamkaa le chal yaaraa thhandi thhandi nahar ki kinaare Manoj Kumar
07 Jab yaad ki badly chhaati hai tab aankh meri bhar aati hai Manoj Kumar

Music for this movie was composed by Uttam Singh–Jagdish Khanna.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Kishore Kumar, and Bhupinder Singh had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is in two parts, and it is sung by Lata Mangeshkar (main song). The second part of the song contains the voice of Mahendra Kapoor as well.

It is actress Neelima (if I recall correctly) who is lip-syncing this song on the screen. In the second part we also see Meenakshi Sheshadri, Om Shivpuri and Rajiv Goswami in the picturization of this song.

I could not find the video for the first part or the full song.

Let us now listen to this very nice song … I like it very much for its poetry.

Our tributes to Qamar Jalalabadi ji.

Hullo Atuldom

This is something which I have always felt. I read the title or heading of a song posted on the blog and immediately I recall another song that has similar thoughts, actions or beginning words in the lyrics. I had the same experience a few days back.

Let me explain. Last time the writing bug bit me, and I was writing this post, I had mentioned Farah Khan’s aunts – Honey and Daisy Irani in the post. As a next step I just looked up if any of their birth dates were in the next few days. I went a little further and just checked out which were the debut movies of the two super-cute sisters and found various sites giving names of different movies.

This Post by our in-house encyclopedia gives a brief biography of the two sisters. I also read Shri. Nayan Yagnik’s comments to the post, where he has mentioned that Honey Irani was youngest among the siblings and that ‘Didi’ or ‘Zameen ke Taare’ could be the debut of Honey. One thing definitely came out of all this research- I recollected a song from the ’80s which I used to hum and was full of ‘Anokhe Bol’.

The 1980s song that I am talking featured the Oh So Gorgeous!! Parveen Babi, Shatrughan Sinha, and Master Vishal. The song was shot in Byculla Zoo of Bombay which was called Victoria Gardens in those days. (This Zoo was renamed as Veermata Jijabai Bhonsale Udyan sometime after 1985 and Bombay became Mumbai. I am sure the older followers of this blog will tell if I am right.)

I am able to locate only a audio link of the song, but having seen it a number of times in Chitrahaar and other such television programmes, I can say that this song is meant to amuse a child who is upset that his family is no more.

Shatrughan Sinha, who plays a cop, is out to solve a triple murder, the child is the only one who escapes. Parveen Babi is the cop’s friend and she helps the cop become friendly with the glum child. Vinod Mehra, Bindiya Goswami (in guest appearances) and Ashok Kumar are the parents and grandfather of the boy who have been killed, Nirupa Roy played the grandma. Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Amjad Khan, Narendranath, Zarina Wahab, Kalpana Iyer, Imtiaz Khan, Satyen Kappu and Amjad Khan were the rest of the cast. The song I am bringing on-board here is from “Chor Police” (1983) which was the directorial debut of Amjad Khan and produced by his wife Shehla Khan and Vinay Kumar Sinha (who was Amjad Khan’s secretary too). It had RD Burman’s music and songs were written by Nida Fazli. Suresh Wadkar, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar, Vinod Sehgal and Vanita Mishra were the playback singers used.

With this post we remember the heroine of this film, Parveen Babi who died on 20th January in 2005. She died a loner and her body was discovered by the police two days later when her neighbours saw uncollected groceries, milk and newspapers outside her door. She was only 50.


Song-Atkan batkan dahi chataakan(Chor Police)(1983) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Vinod Sehgal, Lyrics-Nida Fazli, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

atkan batkan dahi chataakan

jo dekhe wo nakal utaare
sabka ji bahlaaye
waqt pade to sena ban kar dushman se takraaye
jo dekhe wo nakal utaare

maaloom nahin
haah

atkan batkan dahi chataakan
choon choon bhaun bhaun myaaun

hilta dulta parwat jaisa pankhon jaise kan

deel daul se ek jaanwar chehre se bhagwaan
bolo kya

sar pe koi taaj na pagdi
odhe sada doshaala
raat andheri jab bhi nikle aankhen kare ujaala
sar pe koi taaj na pagdi
odhe sada doshaala
raat andheri jab bhi nikle aankhen kare ujaala
jungle ka ek raaja aisa
billi jiski khaala
bolo kya
ho bolo kya

bolo bolo

arre sher

koyal mein kuku ban jaaye
bansi mein malhaar
mamta ki honthon par lori
chidiyon mein chahkaar
koyal mein kuku ban jaaye
bansi mein malhaar
mamta ki honthon par lori
chidiyon mein chahkaar

bolo kya

Blog Day :

4913 Post No. : 16733

There have been two excellent reviews of 83 film which was released recently on 24 December 2021. As such there is not much to add to the review per se. But then the event itself is engraved in golden moments and letters in the annals of sporting history of our country. Well, there always was hockey in which we ruled the roost in those days. People had little doubts in their minds on the continued dominance of West Indies which had already won the first as well as the second world cup in 1975 and 79 respectively. Dark horses India created history by upsetting West Indies in the finals by successfully defending a modest score of 183 runs, a record which stands tall to this day.

Apart from songs and films, railways and cricket (of bygone era) remain amongst the favourite topics on the blog. So, when Avinash ji posted his euphoric post on having watched the film 83 first day first show, there was lot of buzz on our WhatsApp group and its was rather decided that whosoever watches the film should make attempts to write a post on the experiences of not only the film or the event but their own expectations, memories etc.

Well, I am here with my post and would request whatapp group members to ignore reading the next one-line para for obvious reasons and the cliché for which I have become rather infamous. 🙂

I was all but 9 in 1983, having born in Feb’74.

Thus, I knew about India having won the 1983-world cup only a few years later. [Sachin Tendulkar at 10 in the movie is seen dancing in the streets (on someone’s shoulders)]. As such, this post of mine could be some sort of damp squib for keen readers. To add to the misery of writing this post, I am not an avid follower of cricket or for that matter any sport. But, whenever India plays, I always follow up with keen interest. For the said reasons, I am yet to see a full IPL match and can say with enough conviction that I will never ever watch such a match. Further, I have almost completely stopped watching television and my TV table is now occupied by various indoor plants, a new hoppy which I have recently cultivated. Above the TV, creepers such as money plants and broken heart are scaling up the wall to reach the slab. 🙂

However, I have been following follow-up stories of 1983 world cup with all interests. I could completely understand what Kapil Dev’s unbeaten innings of 175 meant for the team, tournament and our country as a whole. With the advent of internet, I have visited web sites pertaining to cricket world cup several times and tried the understand the circumstances under which India went on to upset the two-time defending champions. A perfect example of dark horses turning out to be derby winners. A day after the match, London Times, a British newspaper apparently had the headline “Kapil’s men turn world upside down” on its front page.

With whatever little I have watched on cricket, Kris Srikkanth has been one of my favourite cricketers. In my opinion, he remains one of the few players who played mainly for the crowds. He successfully faced some of the most lethal fast bowlers of different teams.

I remember reading an article in India Today magazine wherein there was a beautiful article entirely dedicated to him. I had been searching for this article published in March 1987 all these years and with renewed interest, I happened to get hold of it in the magazines’ s archives articles. I would recommend readers to spare time to read the article. There have been many a great Indian cricket player over the years. But, the style, controlled aggression, antics on field etc, no one can match the peerless Kris Srikkanth.

Ball racing to the boundary like a bullet was the hallmark of his batting. For every ball that he faced it was always the viewers and not Kris Srikkanth who were afraid that the ball would end up disturbing the furniture behind. He long walks away from the crease towards square-leg umpire, frequent twisting of his nose, closing of his eyes in a flutter, the cursory glance at the skies as if he was reporting to someone after each ball, the meticulous and fast curling of the bat, his legs positioned wide apart on the crease while batting etc. will remain etched in active memories of avid lovers of the game.

Coming back to 1983, but remaining with Kris Srikkanth and his batting style, I am always happy of the fact that with a regal 38 he was the highest scorer of the finals in spite of a few towering batsmen on the opposite camp. Viv Richards scored 33 and that was the second highest individual score in the final.

With all such fond memories, the viewing of the film was for me like travelling back in a time machine. My wife along with my daughter studying II PU are now placed at D.K. Friday 24, the release date of the film, they ended up at U.K. on an unexpected, unplanned and a totally unscheduled visit. My wife has played this pleasant prank on me a couple of times and so even though it was quite surprising, it took just a nano second for me to realise that, yes, they were here for a visit.

On Saturday, 25 Dec, my daughter started this slow and silent campaign that we ought to watch a movie in the only (non-ac) theatre in this town. I do not even bother to follow up which movie plays as I do not go to theatres often. But in this case and to my inner delight it was 83 of all the films that was being screened on that day. And seeing that my daughter was killing time brooding and surfing net for tickets, story etc. I decided that the movie had to be watched anyhow. And so, I saw the film along with my daughter.

Watching films in movie theatres with my wife needs a special mention here. I was placed in Mumbai when I got married in 2003. (Yes, in 3 years, I will be slaying the seven-year itch for the third consecutive time)  🙂

Instead of watching some junk Hindi or Hollywood movie, I thought I would begin my married-life-film-watching-experiences-with-spouse by watching a scientific documentary in the newly opened world’s largest IMAX dome theatre at Bhakti Park, Wadala. My Monorail site was hardly half a km away from the theatre though my residence was far away.

I later realised that my excitement of watching a documentary in a dome theatre was wholly a one-way traffic. Having a keen interest in astronomy, I got rivetted to the documentary show on stars, planets and galaxies. Being a dome theatre, the seats were obviously push back as well as quite reclining on which my wife comfortably dozed off for the entire show. On completion of the show of which I was totally absorbed in, I asked my wife if she had enjoyed the show. She had a brutal reply that she had dozed off from the word go. I realised that we both were travelling in the vastness of space while the documentary was being screened. The only difference was that I had my eyes wide open.  🙂

Thus, being the experience (there were a few more), my wife decided to stay put at home for some house-hold chores and I accompanied my daughter for the 83 show.
The description of the movie has been amply presented in the two posts posted and will be elaborated more when others write in. And so, I will have limited non-chronological bullet-wise observations on the film.

• The film aptly starts with the now legendary catch taken by Kapil Dev dismissing a batsman who could have easily denied India the Cup. Viv Richards. As the ball tends to safely fall into the hands of Kapil Dev, the titles begin, and the movie starts.

• Ranveer Singh has gotten into the skin of the character he plays that of captain Kapil Dev himself. Many a times, his dialogue delivery is simply impeccable. Hats off to him for his efforts in portraying the role with such similarity.

• Kris Srikkanth remains what he has been to the team during their hey days and during the various film promos and stories told on TV earlier too, a complete entertainer.

• The film has tried to keep the aura of those days alive by displaying the runs scored, nature of batsman getting out etc. I only wish, they had more such displays and retained them for a bit longer time than shown in the movie.

• The mood of the nation, prior, during and after the tournament has been captured well.

• The unbeaten knock of 175 by Kapil Dev against Zimbabwe in a do or die match as well as that of the tournament should have been covered in more detail especially since the actual recording and telecast never happened.

• The rotating of the antenna by Indian public with TV sets for better reception brought back fond memories.  🙂

• The premonition of players and other officials remaining still in their positions in the pavilion when the batsman was in good flow is to be seen to be believed and appreciated.

• Kapil Dev pep talk in the dressing room should have been more elaborate and frequent even if they were in Hindi. It has been shown as if he hardly spoke which I feel could not have been the case.

• Kapil Dev’s encouragement talk to his players during the innings break that West Indies team have to still make the “paltry” 183 runs and we will not allow them to achieve it easily is quite emotional and superb.

• PR Man Singh, the Indian manager who accompanied the team to the tournament has been played quite well by Pankaj Tripathi of Mirzapur TV series fame. Given the time space he occupies in the film, Pankaj Tripathi had done full justice to the role. I understand he went to stay with the real Man Singh for a few days in Hyderabad to prepare himself for the role. Much appreciated.

• Wamiqa Gabbi plays Madan Lal’s wife. Why am I mentioning this? I really donno.  🙂  So, (Don’t) keep guessing.

The detailed wiki page of the film has a soundtrack length of about 54 minutes. For obvious reasons, there is no playback as far as songs are concerned. For many in this blog self included the names of present lyricists, singers, composers etc. are all Greek and Latin. Our Avinash ji offered me to send lyrics of any song that I could pick up in the film. That indeed would have made my task a lot easier and I thank him for the outreach.

However, surfing the net whilst writing the post, I came across a very apt song for the occasion. On 17 August 1983 Lata Mangeshkar apparently performed live in a concert in Delhi to facilitate and also raise funds for the winning team on their spectacular victory in the Cricket World Cup tournament.

Joining her in chorus were Nitin Mukesh, Suresh Wadkar and even members of the team including the captain himself. The song for the special occasion was written by renowned lyricist Indeewar and the tune composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. It gives me immense pleasure to bring forth this special song to the readers of the blog.

I would also like to reproduce a snap taken during the Cup award ceremony with Indians occupying the entire ground at Lord’s. It amply showcased the euphoric mood of our nation on winning the world cup in 1983.

Lastly, I would like to end the post with my strong conviction that it’s never too late to honour Kapil Dev with the Bharat Ratna for what he has achieved for our country.
Jai Hind.

Concert song sung on 17 August 1983.

Pancham’s Music – Eighties (1981-1990) -3 (1983)
——————————————————————

In today’s post we move on to Pancham’s music in 1983.

If we talk actor wise the year ‘1983’ belonged to Rajesh Khanna. He delivered hits like Avtaar, Sautan, and Agar Tum Naa Hote. That readily brings to our mind his favourite music director and lyricist viz. Rahul Dev Burman and Anand Bakshi respectively.

In the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year the song that was a ‘topper’ was a song from Rajesh Khanna movie, but it was composed by Usha Khanna and not Rahul Dev Burman. The song was ‘shaayad meri shaadi ka khayaal’. On the 2nd and 3rd spot of this list, were the songs of ‘Nikaah’ composed by Ravi.

There was only one Rajesh Khanna movie that year where Pancham had composed the music. This movie was ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’. Its popular title song ranked twenty-third in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’.

The other Rajesh Khanna movie that found representation in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ was ‘Avtaar’ (its song ‘zindagi mauj udaane ka naam hai’ was at 25th position). (I have not included ‘Disco Dancer-1982 where Kaka had special appearance).

Following movies which were released in 1983 had their music composed by R.D. Burman.

From the above list one song each of ‘Betaab’, ‘Lovers’ and ‘Pukaar’ appeared at spot no.4, 16 and 31 respectively in the annual list of ‘Geetmala – 1983’.

In addition to this one song each from the movies ‘Maasoom’ and ‘Shakti’ ranked at number 11 and 22 respectively. But these were the movies released in 1982.

Two songs – one each from ‘Betaab’ and ‘Maasoom’ appeared in the shadow list of that year’s annual list of Binaca Geetmala.

For today’s presentation I have chosen a song from ‘Main Aawaaraa Hoon-1983’. Two movies from the year 1983, where Pancham composed music, have not debuted on the blog out of nineteen movies. One is ‘Main Aawaaraa Hoon’ and other is ‘Bindiyaa Chamkegi’.

I am not aware of the songs from ‘Bindiyaa Chamkegi’ and songs of ‘Main Aawaaraa Hoon’. But except the one song that is the today’s song from ‘Main Aawaaraa Hoon’. I was aware of this song, but I was not aware the name of the movie it was from.

It is nice sentimental-hummable song ‘kisi ki bewafaai ka sabab ban jaaya karti hai’. I remember this song was played frequently on Radio and cassette recorders in Restaurants and Hotels.
(I was staying at Akola (Maharashtra) then for my 11-12th standard studies 😊)

“Main Aawaaraa Hoon-1983” was directed by Aseem Samanta for his father’s productions ‘Shakti Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Shakti Samanta. It had Sanjay Dutt, Rati Agnihotri, Jayaprada, Raj Babbar, Shakti Kapoor, Madan Puri, Iftekhar, Satyen Kappu, Shubha Khote, Ramesh Deo, Rashmi Chauhan, Raj Bharati, Dinesh Hingoo, Asit Sen, Madhumalini, Tarun Ghosh, Rajendra Nath, Krishnakant, Birbal, Jugnu, Robin Kar, Manorama and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.11.1983.

“Main Aawaaraa Hoon-1983” had five songs, all written by Anand Bakshi. Music was composed by Rahul Dev Burman.

Following is the list of songs this movie had.

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 O mera rastaa meri manzil …main aawaaraa hoon Kishore Kumar, chorus
02 Jaane ya na jaane koyi …bolo ji kaisi kahi Kishore Kumar, Alka Yagnik
03 Suna hai tumhe hamse koi shikaayat hai … Asha Bhonsle
04 Kisi ki bewafaai ka sabab ban jaaya karti hai Kishore Kumar
05 Pyaar kise kehte hain ae ae … Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle

Let us now listen to today’s song which on screen is lip-synced by Sanjay Dutt in the voice of Kishore Kumar who has sung this song with his special touch. The song grows up on us if we listen to it more than once…

Other than Sanjay Dutt we can see Raj Babbar, Rati Agnihotri, Shubha Khote, Rajendra Nath, Iftekhar, Asit Sen and others in the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics(Based on Audio link)

kisi ki bewafaai ka

kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai
mohobbat hi judaai ka
mohobbat hi judaai ka
sabab ban jaya karti hai
kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai

puraane log chehre par
nayaa chehraa lagaaye
puraane log chehre par
nayaa chehraa lagaaye
miley gairon se hanske
apnon se milte hain aaye
hayaa bhi behayaai ka
hayaa bhi behayaai ka
sabab ban jaya karti hai
kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai

bachaaya hai hamaari muflisi ne
ham fakeeron ko
bachaaya hai hamaari muflisi ne
ham fakeeron ko
bahot nazdeek se dekha hai hamne
kuchh ameeron ko
ye daulat har buraayi ka
ye daulat har buraayi ka
sabab ban jaya karti hai
kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai

bane na baat jab koi
to koyi kuchh kahe kaise
bane na baat jab koi
to koyi kuchh kahe kaise
jo kuchh kehna zaroori ho to
insaan chup rahe kaise
ye chup dil ki duhaayi ka
ye chup dil ki duhaayi ka
sabab ban jaya karti hai
kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai
mohobbat hi judaai ka
mohobbat hi judaai ka
sabab ban jaya karti hai
kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai

किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
मोहोब्बत ही जुदाई का
मोहोब्बत ही जुदाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है

पुराने लोग चेहरे पर
नया चेहरा लगाए
पुराने लोग चेहरे पर
नया चेहरा लगाए
मिले गैरों से हंसके
अपनों से मिलते हैं आये
हया भी बेहयाई का
हया भी बेहयाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है

बचाया है हमारी मुफलिसी ने
हम फकीरों को
बचाया है हमारी मुफलिसी ने
हम फकीरों को
बहोत नजदीक से देखा है हमने
कुछ अमीरों को
ये दौलत हर बुराई का
ये दौलत हर बुराई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है

बने ना बात जब कोई
तो कोई कुछ कहे जैसे
बने ना बात जब कोई
तो कोई कुछ कहे जैसे
जो कुछ कहना ज़रूरी हो तो
इंसान चुप रहे कैसे
ये चुप दिल की दुहाई का
ये चुप दिल की दुहाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
मोहोब्बत ही जुदाई का
मोहोब्बत ही जुदाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is one that I have been wanting to present on the blog for years. I have kept looking for its link on YouTube and finally found that someone has uploaded it in May 2019. Then I looked for the movie’s songs on our blog and found one song was posted with lyrics contributed by Avinashji.

In the comments to that song Prakshchandraji has written this about the movie:-

“Shubh Kaamna is a remake of famous Telugu hit movie “Shubh Lekha(1982) (directed by the same famous director K.Vishwanath) starring famous Telugu Hero (now turned into politician) Chiranjeevi and Sumalata. The film dealt with the Dowry system and Utpal Dutt`s acting in Shubh kaamna is very good. And the music of Pancham is also very good. Kiran Vairale acted very well. But I think, somehow the southern flavour of the movie was not accepted by northern audience. But I enjoyed the movie very much.”

Prakashji had also mentioned that the videos related to the movie are not easily available.

The movie had a cast of Rati Agnihotri, Kiran Vairale, Ashalata, Rakesh Roshan, Vinod Mehra (think it was a special appearance), Sujit Kumar, Utpal Dutt, Asrani, Omprakash, Satyen Kappu, and South actor Sudhakar played Utpal Dutt’s younger son and Kiran Vairale’s love interest. The songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. I had seen this movie with family at the time of its theatrical release; and loved the concept of the movie. There was something to do with Allwyn watch company in the movie and some portion of the movie was shot in the factory, if my memory is correct. Also the beaches of Andhra Pradesh served as location for much of the movie.

Today’s song is a stage song which has Rakesh Roshan singing at a cultural program at the college where Rati Agnihotri is a lecturer and Kiran Vairale (her sister) is a student. The song is in a few dialects(editor’s- it is in Bangla).

Today happens to be Rakesh Roshan’s birthdate. He started his career at 21 or 22 after the untimely death of his father -the music director Roshan. He began as assistant to director Mohan Kumar in films like ‘Anjaana’. He was recommended by Rajendra Kumar to Soodesh Kumar and he got a supporting role in ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani’ All through his acting career he has acted in many heroine-centric movies like ‘Paraya Dhan’, ‘Khoobsurat’, ‘Aankhon Aankhon Mein’, ‘Bahurani’, ‘Humari Bahu Alka’ etc. He played a few grey characters too as in ‘Jhootha Kahin Ka’, ‘Dil Aur Deewar’, ‘Daasi’, ‘Aakhir Kyon?’ etc. When he started his own production house his first movie was ‘Aap Ke Deewane’ which starred Tina Munim opposite two heroes- Rishi Kapoor and Rakesh Roshan. His next was ‘Kaamchor’ which had Jaya Prada as the central character. this was followed by ‘Jaag Utha Insaan’ and ‘Bhagwan Dada’ both of which had Sridevi in important roles. He turned a full-fledged filmmaker i.e. a producer director with ‘Khoon Bhari Maang’ which was on Rekha’s character. ‘Bahurani’ (1989) and ‘Aurat Aurat Aurat’ (1996) where the last movies where he had a substantial part to play. He has since been seen in guest appearances in ‘Koi Mil Gaya’, ‘Krrish’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’. He has been in the enterainment industry for 50 years now.

Here is wishing Rakesh Roshan lots of health and happiness as he turns 72.

Hullo Atuldom

18th July 2012- nine years to the date since the first superstar of Bollywood passed away. An actor who charmed his way into the hearts of his (female) fans with a smile that reached his eyes and could express his emotions with his eyes.

The style with which he said “Pushpa, I hate tears”. Or the the way he said “why are you roing?” to his girlfriend (Farida Jalal) who has come to wish him ‘all the best’ as he is leaving for the war.

Can anyone forget “Zindagi aur maut toh uparwale ke haath mein hain jahaanpanaah……” There are numerous such dialogues and sequences that are etched in the collective minds of his fans. But all these superlative scenes and dialogues came in the first few years of his stardom when he gave 15 consecutive hits.

What happened next? A tall lanky man walked in and went on to become the next superstar. But did he actually dislodge our Kaka from his pedestal? Not exactly. Kaka still kept coming up with movies were he was the solo hero, which were decently successful at the Box-Office too. In 1984-85 he had 11 releases of which 8 were hits in spite of the Amitabh mania being at its peak. In fact none of the superstars (past and/or present) Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan or Shahrukh Khan or all those who followed, can say that they have similar crazy fans. There are anecdotes about how female fans threw themselves at his car, how many of them were heart-broken when he got married etc.

I have read Amitabh Bachchan’s blog (that is the only other film-based blog, besides ASAD that I read/follow on such occasions) where he has said “The word ‘Superstar’ was invented for him, and for me it shall ever remain his, and no others .. !! His generation and the generations that follow, shall never be able to describe, or understand his phenomena .. !!”. What more can say about Kaka a.k.a Rajesh Khanna.

He was the highest paid actor for the longest time and he made an eye-pleasing pair with all his heroines of the time. Be it Hema Malini, Rekha, Shabana Azmi, Moushumi, Waheeda Rehman, Zeenat, Parveen babi etc. etc. etc. and Sridevi, Jaya Prada, Padmini Kolhapure, Tina Munim etc. from the next set. R D Burman, Kishore Kumar and Rajesh Khanna were a successful team and had worked together in 32 films. He had a keen sense of music and the songs of his movies right from ‘aur kuch der thahar aur kuch der na jaa’ to ‘Jai Jai Shiv Shankar’ to any songs, which any reader wants to add in this list, are well loved and still popular .

Selecting a song for this post was not easy as there are so many songs to choose from. I have tried to find a song which is not by R D Burman and the first song that I thought of is a personal favourite which, I am surprised, is not yet on the blog. In fact, Sudhirji had pointed out the absence of this song on the blog a long time back.

The song is written by Sawan Kumar Tak and composed by Usha Khanna. The song had two versions one by Lata Mangeshkar which was sung on screen by Padmini Kolhapure and the other by Kishore Kumar which was lip synced by (but of course) Rajesh Khanna. Both the versions cannot be classified as happy or sad but the song is very philosophical. Yes, I am talking of “Zindagi pyar ka geet hai” from ‘Soutan’ (1983). I don’t want to get into any discussion about which version is better and has stood the test of time. We shall straight away get to the song.

Here is that ever-so-popular song where we have both actors at their emotional best.
