The byline in one of the news programs on the 6th evening was – “फिल्मों का एक युग, मिनटों में सिमट गया” (“filmon ka ek yug, minton mein simat gaya”) (an entire era of (Hindi) filmdom, faded away in a matter of minutes). A completely unexpected departure happened earlier in the day. Very much in the saddle, and very much in the busy prime of his career, Om Puri passed away suddenly. The amount of intensity he packed into his characters, and in his dialogue delivery, it seemed he was going to last forever on the screen. Sixty six years they say. Goodness, it just seems like yesterday that Bhikhu picked up that axe used to cut wood at a cremation ground, and brutally attacked his own sister.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

So now we are all busy discussing the pros and cons of the demonetisation on our WhatsApp group. We are also having a fair number of jokes on the subject. But as our dear thandapani mentioned last week when our PM dropped the demonetisation bomb (as I like to call it) I have also decided to wait and watch for the rush at the banks and cash ATMs. At such a time a few songs ran through my mind. Let us have one of them today.

Today(12 november 2016) is the 70th birthday of Gopal Bedi.

Gopal who, you say?

No surprise if the name doesn’t ring a bell. But if I say “Ranjeet”, it will have instant recall.

Asha ji, one of the leading lady playback singers in Indian cinema, turns 83 today. Seventy of thes 83 years have been spent in an active career, probably the longest such accomplishment by a playback singer. As Sadanand ji indicates in his article (the one before this), he states that she is currently on a concert tour of US. This speaks of the energy and the verve of this personality.

Indian cricket and Bollywood both enjoy enormous popularity among Indians. With the fan following that some of the cricketing stars enjoy, a few producers have toyed with the idea of featuring them in main roles, side roles and also in guest roles in their movies. The underlying idea seems to be to encash their popularity for drawing more movie watchers to the movie halls. But past experiences show that most films featuring cricketers have flopped.

If November was the month of many Miss Indias-turned- actresses ‘ birthdates then December will be proud to call itself the month of actors who are/were superstars. The list has Dharamendra, Shatrughan SInha, Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan & Rajesh Khanna. (Disclaimer to all those who want to correct this list: I have chosen to mention only those actors who are/were superstars. The anniversary list page on our blog mentions around 24 male birthdays.) Dharamendra turned 80 a few days back; Shatrughan Sinha turned 70; Dilip Saab turned 93 yesterday; Raj Kapoor would have been 91 in 15 days from now; Govinda will turn 52; Anil Kapoor 59; Salman Khan 50 and Rajesh Khanna would have been 73. Phew! Thats a lot of statistics! Let me wish those whose birthdates I missed a very Belated Happy Birthday. {Isn’t that what we do when we miss some friend’s birthday; wish belatedly ;-)}

Aap Se Humko Bichhde Huye, Ek Zamaana Beet Gaya” – a classic from the 1969 film ‘Vishwaas’. Interesting story behind this song. Kalyanji Anandji had composed this song to be sung by Mukesh. On the day of the recording, for some reason, Mukesh could not be present. Kalyanji Anandji, for the sake of utilizing the recording session, decided to record the song anyway, in another voice. The song was supposed to be re-recorded when Mukesh would be available again for recording. Later, when re-recording was being discussed with Mukesh, he happened to listen to the song that was already recorded. So impressed was he with the voice and the rendering of this specific song, he insisted that the song be retained and included in the film as recorded. Thus was launched the singing career of a mechanical engineering graduate, who had come to Bombay initially, not to become a singer.

Wishing Manhar Udhas many happy returns of his birthday (13th May).
