Happy Independence Day to all!!!

Today (15 august 2021),We are celebrating the seventy-fifth year of our hard-fought freedom that we got on 15th August in 1947. We can breathe in this free air now because many had sacrificed their present at that time for our future. There are many known and too many unknown freedom fighters who laid down their lives to see India as a free nation. The nation has grown up to seventy-four years old now and is stepping into the seventy-fifty year of its life.

Many goals were fulfilled and many remains unfulfilled. ‘Swaraj’ for all is still a distant dream and so is the dream of the basic needs for all i.e., ‘roti, kapda aur makaan’.

With hopes alive we keep moving year to year achieving growth in some areas and falling short in some areas, but the spirit of ‘unity’ that binds us is strong and it is becoming stronger and stronger day by day. That is inspite of ‘divisive forces’ leaving no stones unturned to create unrest in the country over petty issues, causingmresulting unrest here and there.

Today is the day when we all come together and pay our tributes to our freedom fighters and reiterate the pledge of ‘long live the freedom of India’ and ‘long live the republic of India’.

It is customary for us to cover patriotic songs from Hindi movies on thi occasion. We still have lots and lots of patriotic songs not yet showcased on the blog despite the bog coering many patriotic songs during the last 13 years o its eitene.

When we talk of patriotic songs in Hindi movies, the movie personality’s name that immediately comes to our mind is actor-producer-director Manoj Kumar.

Manoj Kumar made several movies with social and patriotic themes which always have created some of the memorable and timeless classic songs glorifying our motherland. Today we will be listening to one such song from his movie ‘Clerk’ made in 1989.

I was staying at Kota (Rajasthan) (1988-1996) then and I remember that I had watched this movie with my boss and colleagues from my office.

As I have mentioned in my earlier posts on the blog, I have grown up watching many movies of Manoj Kumar (movies from Black & white era) and the latest in the seventies and eighties.
Though I didn’t remember all about this movie ‘Clerk’ now, but I remember this movie had many shades of ‘Roti, Kapda aur Makaan’ in it, in its story as well as picturization of the songs. For that matter the picturization of songs had always been in unique style of Manoj Kumar in his movies.

I also do not remember when today’s song appears in the movie. This song is a patriotic song celebrating ‘15th August’ or ‘pandrah August’ and the spirit of freedom.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor. Lyrics are written by Manoj Kumar himself (he was also the producer, director, and editor of this movie).
Music for this movie ‘Clerk-1989’ was composed by Uttam Singh-Jagdish Khanna.

I do not remember now on whom the song had been picturized. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its’ songs.
Let us listen to the song now.

Once again wishing all of our readers a ‘very Happy Independence Day’ …

Blog Day :

4772 Post No. : 16521

While we in this blog discuss songs, we also discuss other topics of common interest, like sports (mainly cricket), festivals, history, economy etc.

Tokyo Olympics concluded a few days back. As Indians, we had lots of sporting events to look forward to. Indians were participating in many events. Indians had pinned hopes of medals on quite a few of them, seeing that some of them were actually ranked world number 1, 2, 3 etc in their sports and they were given similar seedings too in the Olympics. But most of these sportspersons disappointed.

On the other hand, there were a few who performed beyond their rankings and managed to win medals. India won a medal (silver) on the very first day of the Olympics. First three medals were won by female athletes. Later, males too joined in winning medals.

Icing on the cake arrived on 7 August 2021, the last day of Olympics. The final medal that India won in these games happened to a track and field medal. It was the very first time that India won a track and field medal. And it turned out to be a GOLD medal, no less !

This gold medal event was in men’s javelin throw. Indians had never taken so much intetest in an atheletics event before this Olympics. I was one of those who followed the event closely. Since India actually won the gold, I dug deep and got all the relevant details of this competition. In this article, I present my findings, which is basically a description of How the Javelin Gold was won in Tokyo Olympics.

There were 32 javelin throwers in the competition. They were divided into two groups, viz Group A and group B, each consisting of 16 athletes.

In the qualification round, each javelin thrower was given three attempts in which to achieve the qualifying marks of 83. 5 meters. Based on the performances, 12 javelin throwers were to qualify for the finals.

In case less than 12 javelin throwers achieved the qualification mark, then the remaining slots were to be filled from those who had hurled the javelin the farthest among the non qualifiers.

Only six javelin throwers (three from group A and three from group B) were able to achieve direct qualification by throwing the javelin beyond 83.5 meters. Here are the details of these six direct qualifiers.

Gr A Gr B Overall qualification round rank
Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank
Neeraj Chopra (India) 1 (86.65 m) 86.65 m 1 1
J Vetter (Germany) 3 (82.04 m,82.08m, 85.64 m) 85.64 m 2 2
Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 2 (78.50 m, 85.16 m) 85.16 m 1 3
Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 3 (79.27, 78.96 m, 84.93 m) 84.93 m 2 4
L Etelatalo (Finland) 1 (84.50 m ) 84.50 m (SB) 3 5
Julian Weber (Germany) 1 ( 84.41 m) 84.41 m 3 6

Only six javelin throwers could gain direct qualifications. There were six more slots of finalists to be filled. Those six non qualifiers who threw the javelin the farthest were picked to fill the remaining slots. Following six javelin throwers thus gained indirect qualification for the final:-

Gr A Gr B Overall qualification round rank
Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank
A M Novac (Romania) 3 (83.27 m, 80.90 m, x) 83.27 m (SB) 4 7
V Vesely (Czech) 3 (x, 83.04 m, x) 83.04 m (SB) 5 8
Alaksei Katkavets (BLR) 3 (81.08 m, 81.73 m, 82.72 m) 82.72 m 4 9
Andrian Mardare (Moldova) 3 (80.69, 78.95 m, 82.70 m) 82.70 m 5 10
Pavel Mialeshka (BLR) 3 (x, 82.17m, 82.64 m ) 82.64 m 6 11
Kim Amb (Sweden) 3 (82.40 m, 79.87, x ) 82.40 m (SB) 7 12

Thus four javelin throwers from group A and two from group B gained indirect qualification for the final. Remaining 20 javelin throwers (9 from group A and 11 from group B ) were eliminated.

The qualifying mark of 83.50 m does not appear too daunting for the competitors on paper, seeing that the personal best throws of most competitors, including those who failed to qualify was well over 83.5 meters. Some of the non qualifiers in fact had hurled the spear well over 90 m in the past. Some of them were past Olympic medal winners and world champions as well. Those who failed to qualify for the final included Walcott Keshorn (Trinidad and Tobago)-2012 Olympics gold medalist (90.16 m personal best), Julius Yego (Kenya)- 2016 Olympics silver medalist (personal best of 92.72 m), Cheng Chao Tsun (Taipeh)- Asian record holder with 91.36 m throw, Peter Anderson (Grenada)-current world champion (personal best 87.31 m) etc.

But World class sports is played on the field and it depends on performance on the day. Past records and achievements count for little. It is the three throws in the qualifying competition that determine who goes ahead to the finals and who get eliminated. Only six javelin throwers gained direct qualification. The six javelin throwers sneaked in as indirect qualifiers. The last qualifier who qualified could only hurl the spear to a distance of 82.4 meters, more than one meter behind the qualification mark.

Indians were cautiously optimistic about the chances of Neeraj Chopra because his performance during the current season vis a vis the performance of other leading contenders suggested that he was a medal contender.

Many leading contenders were eliminated after the qualifying round. The biggest gold contender was J Vetter of Germany, who had a season’s best of 97. 76 meters achieved in July 2021. But he too was on the verge of elimination in the qualifying stage, before he survived by crossing the qualifying mark on his third and final throw. Neeraj Chopra of India gave Indians a pleasant surprise by easily qualifying on his very first throw, and that throw was the longest throw of the qualifying stage. Thus he qualified as number 1 qualifier among the 12 qualifiers for the final. Vetter qualified as number 2. Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem qualified at the third place, and Pakistanis suddenly found something to look forward to in the Tokyo Olympics.

The timings of sports telecast of Tokyo Olympics suited India perfectly. The telecast would beging early morning iST and would continue till late evening. Javelin throw finals were scheduled on Saturday 7 August 2021. Unlike the qualifiers, the finals were at night time. It was in the afternoon in India.

The rules for the finals were that all 12 throwers would be given three throws each. The first eight contenders after these three throws would get another three throws each. The throwers would then be ranked based on their best throws.

When the competition began, I took pen and paper and began to note down the throws of the participants. During the first three throws, the sequence of throwers was arbitrary (or so it seemed to me). The number 10 qualifier (Adrian Mardore) threw first followed by Neeraj Chopra (number 1 qualifier), then number 12 qualifier (Kim Amb) followed by number 7 (A M Novak) etc. The first three throws of the twelve throwers in the sequence in which they threw was noted down by me in a table like this :-

S No Thrower (Country) First throw (m) Second throw (m) Third throw (m) Best throw (m) Standing after three throws
1 Adrian Mardare (Moldova) 81.16 81.73 82.84 82.84 Eighth
2 Neeraj Chopra (India) 87.03 87.58 76.79 87.58 First
3 Kim Amb (Sweden) 77.22 78.31 79.69 79.69 Eleventh
4 A M Novac (Romania) 77.03 79.29 x 79.29 Twelfth
5 Vitazlav Vesely (Czech) 79.73 80.30 85.44 85.44 Second
6 Julian Weber (Germany) 85.30 77.90 78.00 85.30 Third
7 Lassi Etelataro (Finland) 78.43 76.59 83.28 83.28 Seventh
8 J Vetter (Germany) 82.52 x x 82.52 Ninth
9 Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 82.40 x 84.62 84.62 Fourth
10 Pavel Mialeshka (BLR) 82.28 79.35 78.13 82.28 Tenth
11 Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 83.98 x x 83.98 Fifth
12 Aliaskei Katkavets (BLR) 82.49 81.03 83.71 83.71 Sixth

After the first three throws, bottom four throwers were eliminated. J Vetter, the world record holder and the overwhelming favourite for the gold, had just one legal throw in his first attempt. That throw of 82.52 m kept him in the fourth position till the second round. But he fouled his third round and as many as five throwers threw longer than his 82.52 m in their third attempts. These five throwers advanced, and Vetter was relegated to the ninth position after third round. Thus he was among those four who were eliminated after round three. It was a big upset. The other three people who were eliminated threw lesser distances than what they had thrown during the qualifying stage, and their elimination was no surprise.

The remaining eight contenders then hurled three more throws in the ascending orders of their standing after three throws, viz the person eighth in the standing threw first and the person standing first threw last.

Here are the throws of the eight javelin throwers in the order in which they took their fourth, fifth and sixth attempts.

S No Thrower (Country) First throw (m) Second throw (m) Third throw (m) Fourth throw Fifth throw Sixth throw Best throw (m) Standing after six throws
1 Adrian Mardare (Moldova) 81.16 81.73 82.84 81.90 83.30 81.09 83.30 Seventh
2 Lassi Etelataro (Finland) 78.43 76.59 83.28 79.20 79.99 83.05 83.28 Eighth
3 Aliaskei Katkavets (BLR) 82.49 81.03 83.71 79.24 x x 83.71 Sixth
4 Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 83.98 x x 82.86 86.67 (SB) x 86.67 Second (SILVER)
5 Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 82.40 x 84.62 82.91 81.98 x 84.62 Fifth
6 Julian Weber (Germany) 85.30 77.90 78.00 83.10 85.15 75.72 85.30 Fourth
7 Vitazlav Vesely (Czech) 79.73 80.30 85.44 (SB) x 84.98 x 85.44 Third (BRONZE)
8 Neeraj Chopra (India) 87.03 87.58 76.79 x x 84.24 87.58 First (GOLD)

One can see that six out of eight throwers who were eligible for three additional throws failed to improve upon their best attempts achieved during the first three attempts. There were just two throwers who achieved their best during the fourth, fifth and sixth attempts. They climbed up the rankings and affected the rankings of those whom they overtook.

Adrian Mardore of Moldova, who was eighth after three throws achieved his best throw of 83.30 m in his fifth attempt. With this throw, which was 2 cm better than the best throw of seventh placed Lassi Etelataro of Norway, climbed up to seventh position, relegating Lassi Etelataro to the eighth position in the final standing.

The other thrower who gave his best during the final three throws changed the higher standings in a major way. Jakub Vadlejch of Czech republic had managed just one legal throw during his first three attempts, but that throw was far enough to keep him in top 8. In his fifth attempt, he hurled the javelin to a distance of 86.67 m. It was season’s best performance for him, just like his throw during the qualification stage was his season’s best. With this throw, he climbed upto the second position. Athletes, who were occupying second, third and fourth position were pushed one place down as a result. So, his compatriot Vitaly Vesely, who too had thrown his season’s best throw in the final, had to be content with the bronze. Julian Weber of Germany, who too had achieved season’s best throw in the final, was fourth. Arshad Nadeem of Pakistan, ended up fifth.

One can see that Neeraj Chopra of India led from the front and he was never threatened for the gold. It all sounds so easy with the benefit of hindsight, but it was obviously not as easy at it looks like. In a country known for missing opportunities, allowing opportunities to slip away, choking at the last moment etc, it was such a refreshing change to see an Indian performing like a seasoned pro, grabbing the contest by the scruff of its neck and not allowing others a sniff of a chance. He qualified for the final in just one throw, ending up at number one among all qualifiers. In the final, his first two throws were longer than the throws of all other competitors and so he had sealed his gold in his first two throws itself. It looks so easy if you have a talented sportsman representing you. In reality, it was the very first time that an Indian was winning a Track and Field medal in an Olympics.

Indians would have settled for medal of any hue, even bronze, as their first track and field atheletics medal. The fact that it was a gold has immense significance. European nations keep winning track and field golds, and that changes nothing, but a solitary track and field Gold won by an India will change the fate of atheletics in India, and elsewhere. Let us not forget, even today India is world’s fifth biggest economy. If Indians take to atheletics with the same vengeance with which they take to cricket, then atheletics worldwide will get more popular than what it already is because one sixth of world population lives in India. We have already seen what happened to cricket in India (and worldwide) when India won ODI world cup in 1983, and later T20 World cup in 2007. I can foresee a situation when an atheletics revolution will take place in India in near future.

Those who think that this medal is one off and the normal service will resume after that, I disagree. THis event has changed Indian sports for ever. I can cite an Indian example to prove my point. India was a very weak chess playing nation till 1970s, that too when Chess was a game that originated in India. It was belived that Indians can never become chess grandmasters. It was in 1988 that India had her first chess grandmaster (Vishwanathan Anand). This event popularised chess in India as never before. Vishwanathan Anand went on to become five times world champion, and India today had 69 grand masters in chess. Chess too has an Olympics, called Chess Olympiad, played every two years. How many of us know that India at present is joint world champion in Chess Olympiad (with Russia)! All this had happened in a matter of three decades. I see a similar thing happening in Athletics. Indian economy and market can easily support and sponsor this forthcoming athletics revolution in India.

If one looks at the medal tally of various nations in Olympics, one will find that the medal tally in a way is a refection on the economic development of a nation. The top ten nations in the medal tally are major economies. Most are high income nations and others are just one rung below, viz Middle income group nations. Sporting prowess in a way has some definite correlation with HDI (Human development Index) of a country. There are some notable exceptions (viz some African nations), but otherwise economical development leads to overall betterment in sporting achievements. Hopefully, India too will join the ranks of top medal winners two to three decades from now, like how India has already become a top chess playing nation, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Russia, USA and other chess superpowers.

What is the medal tally that India achieved in Tokyo Olympics ? One gold, two silvers, four bronze. One two ka four, four two ka one. Hindi movie “Ram Lakhan” had already created a song for this occasion, as far back as in 1989, when Vishwanathan Anand was India’s sole chess grandmaster !

Here is this popular song of its time. It is sung by Md Aziz, Anuradha Paudwal, Nitin Mukesh and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. It is picturised on Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff and others as a dance song.

Lyrics

rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhana hai
ek aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
ik aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

jis raat chandaniya se ye chaand khafa hoga aa
jis raat chandaniya se ye chaand khafa hoga
us raat ke raahi ka socha bhi hai kya hoga
raste mein andhera hai aur door thhikaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

vo ghar bhi koi ghar hai deevaar na ho jismein
vo ghar bhi koi ghar hai deevaar na ho jismein
us pyaar ki kya keemat takraar na ho jismein
gussa to manaane ka bas ek bahaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

bhoole se koi aansu aankhon mein agar aaye ae
bhoole se koi aansu aankhon mein agar aaye
vo dil ki amaanat hai mitti mein na mil jaaye
ulfat ka vo moti hai palkon mein chhupaaaa hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
ik aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai ae
ik aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
donon ko nibhaana hai
donon ko nibhaana hai

It can be seen from the table of 1989 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 38 songs in 19 movies released in 1989.
8 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1989 have been covered in the blog. All Lata songs from two movies (one song each from “Jurrat” and “Ram Lakhan”) have been covered. That leaves us with 36 songs from 17 movies of 1989 that are yet to be covered.

Alphabetically “Aakhri Badla”(1989) is the first movie of 1989 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Aakhri Badla”(1989) was produced by Produced by Biswanath Ghosh and Jibananda Ghosh and directed by Mangal Chakraborty for B T B Enterprises. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Prem Chopra, Abhi Bhattacharya, Anil Chatterjee, Tom Alter, Avijeet Sen, Bishwanath Ghoshe, Hilary Eastwick Held,

“Aakhri Badla”(1989) had a chequered history. It was planned on an ambitious grandiose scale as a bilingual movie in Banagla and Hindi. The movie kept getting delayed. By the time it could be released, more than 7 years later, the movie had few takers

The movie had four songs in it. One of them was a Kishore Kuamr Lata Mangeshkar duet. Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Salil Chaudhary.

Only the audio of the song seems to be available. Salil Chaudhary had used this tune earlier in a Malayalam film “Etho Oru Swapnam” (1978) and then in the Tamil film “Azhiyadha Kolangal” (1978), both with music by Salil Chaudhary. The Malayalam film song “Poomanam Poothulanje” was sung by Yesudas, while the Tamil song “Poo Vannam Pola Nenjam” was sung by P. Jayachandran and P. Susheela. This tune was even older. It was initially released in 1980 under the title “Antarghat”.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

With this song, “Aakhri Badla”(1989) makes its debut in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

“Ghar Ka Chiraag” is a title that has been used twice in Bollywood- in 1967 and 1989. The 1967 film had a cast of Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Balraj Sahni, Indrani Mukherjee, Dev Kumar, Biswajeet etc and had music by Madan Mohan for songs written by Kaifi Azmi. This was directed and produced by Jagdev Bhambri.
The 1989 film had Rajesh Khanna leading a cast of Neelam, Chunky Pandey, Om Shivpuri, Shafi Inamdaar, Navin Nischol and Dipika Chikhalia in a special appearance. It had music by Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan was the lyricist. This one was directed by Sikander Bharti and produced by Rajeev Kumar Choudhry.

The content in both the films seem to be different going by the synopsis available on the internet. But I know for a fact that “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (1989) was majorly inspired by the 1969 Balraj Sahni- Sadhana- Sanjay Khan starrer “Ek Phool Do Mail”. This statement of mine is sufficient to give the followers an idea about the movie, correct? Of course, there were minor differences in the story. In “Ek Phool Do Mali” (EPDM) Sadhana becomes an unwed mother because she is molested, whereas “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (GKC) had Neelam getting pregnant with Chunky Pandey’s child. In EPDM Sanjay was a mountaineer and GKC had Chunky as a racing enthusiast. Rest of the story was same in both the movies. And both movies had melodious songs.

GKC had eight songs with two songs having happy and sad versions. “Tutak tutak tutak tutiya” was very popular when the movie had released and I think it was inspired by some Punjabi folk song; this one had two versions. Another song ‘yeh kismat hai kya, jaanta hai wahi’ also had two versions. The happy version is when Kumar (Rajesh Khanna) is celebrating his happiness with wife (Deepika) and friends. We see that this song is echoing the thoughts that Dilip Kumar and Shammi Kapoor had put forth in this song.

In the second version we have Rajesh Khanna singing out his life experiences, and says ‘ek thokar lagi, toota sara nasha’.

Bappi Lahiri used Mohammad Aziz, Amit Kumar and Sapna Mukherjee (youtube is crediting Alka Yagnik for this song, need confirmation) for this song and Alisha Chinai and Amit Kumar for ‘Tutak tutak tutiya’. Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik and Sarika Kapoor (another new name, for me at least) were the other playback singers.
Mohammad Aziz who sang the sad version of today’s song would have celebrated his 67th birthday on July 2nd. He was born in Kolkatta. He sang, primarily, in Hindi, Bengali and Odia films plus some Sufi devotional songs and also various genres in 10 other languages. He was also credited as Munna in some movies. ‘Mard’ by Anu Malik was his breakthrough though the 1984 movie ‘Amber’ with music by Sapan-Jagmohan was his debut in Bollywood. He has sung alongside all the prominent singers of the ’80s and ’90s with music composed by RD Burman, Laxmi-Pyare, Ravindra Jain, Raamlaxman etc; even OP Nayyar and Naushad.

Amit Kumar who has sung the duet with Sapna Mukherjee (or it could be Alka Yagnik, as per the tagging on youtube) celebrates his birthday on July 3rd turns 69!!!!! Is it so!!!!! Unbelieveable!!!! Cannot think of some people as aging, right no 🙂

We have enough fans of Amit Kumar on this blog and everyone knows his history, lineage etc. His last film appearance was in the 1989 release ‘Mamta Ki Chhaon’ which was a movie left incomplete by Kishore Kumar-his father. He had acted in many movies made by his father beginning with “Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein” in 1964. He won the Filmfare award for best singer in 1982 for the 1981 release “Love Story”.

Here is remembering Munna a.k.a Mohammad Aziz on his birth anniversary and Wishing Amit Kumar many more Happy Returns. May he continue to entertain us. He is launching a special RD Burman tribute on his birth-date on his YouTube channel… looking forward to it

Happy version (Duet)

Sad version (Sung by Md Aziz)

lad paayega bolo yahaan
darr ke kismat se ruka hai
iss zameen pe aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
hooo ooooo
ooooo
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hai wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

jitne oonche ho insaan ke hausle
utne oonche mahal uske kadmon taley
ho jitne oonche ho insaan ke housle
utne unche mahal uske kadmon taley

jinki mehenat ke dam se mahal hai khade
unko rehne ko milte hai kyon jhonpde
unki mehenat main ye akal shaamil na thhi
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
uski mehenat mein hogi kahi kuchh kami
warna kya hai jo kar na sake aadmi

aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banaayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

aaj ka aadmi chaand ko chhoo saka
phir bhi dharti ko khushaal na kar saka
yahaan mehenat se sholon pe bhi gul khile
buri kismat se barsaat mein ghar jale
aaa aaaa aaa aa
aa aa aa aa
ye takraar sadiyon se yoonhi chale
magar ho sake na kabhi faisle
ye sach hai ki mehnat se sab kuchh miley
magar jab ye kismat yahaan saath de
na mehenat hai chhoti na kismat badi
hai donon ke dam pe ye duniya khadi
ye kismat hai kya jaante hain khadi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

——————————————–
Sad version (Sung by Md Aziz )
——————————————–

har dua ek baddua
kyun ban gayi,
pal mein yahaan
bewafa kismat bhi,
uthth gaya sar se aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

ye kismat hai karti ajab faisle
yahaan milke sab kuchh
bhi kuchh na miley
bhatakti hai yoon dar-badar zindagi
ke marke bhi insaan mar na sakey
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri

ek thhokar lagi toota saara nasha
ab hai jaanaa kahaan kuchh nahin hai pata
laake kismat ne chhoda hai kis mod par
jo musaafir thha khud ban gaya raasta
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi

The other day, Madhuri Dixit’s birthday was celebrated on the blog and it inevitably reminded me of many of her songs. This is one song from the film ‘Ram Lakhan’ (1989), which is never out of mind, though has been out of sight for many years now. This was in 1989, and my mother and elder sister were already fans of Anil Kapoor. I was not a fan and would call him some uncharitable names, not unprintable but will not mention here. The era of seeing every Amitabh Bachchan film was over, and Subhash Ghai, the producer director of this film was a big name. He was so big that he got to name a few of his heroines, rechristen them literally. Meenakshi, Madhuri and Manisha, Mahima etc. He was fixated or superstitious about naming the heroines beginning with the letter ‘M’. I have seen very few Anil Kapoor songs appearing in the blog. Some newer songs are here, but the many films he did in his earlier period, especially of his jodi with Jackie Shroff, are not here at all. Same is the case with Madhuri Dixit.

Film magazines like Stardust and Filmfare, were still the popular medium of reading and gaining knowledge, useful as well as not so useful. I can say for sure that it has been decades, since I have seen a film magazine in any language. Even doctor’s dispensaries don’t have them. I personally don’t know anyone who buys/reads any such magazines, or if they grace the center-table in any living rooms nowadays. Quite a fall for these publications really. Absence of television has helped, so that I am not even aware of the winners of Filmfare awards these days.

The song in question is a well composed, written and sung, sort of a filmy situation ‘bhakti’ song. Madhuri Dixit is the highlight, as only she could be. Laxmikant-Pyarelal have given a dekho, a ‘retro’ of ‘Pakeeza’ soundtrack and their own ‘Sargam’ soundtrack in the interlude music. The team of Anand Bakshi & L-P were a pro at creating such situational songs. And Lata Mangeshkar was still the backbone of any L-P score, be it the films of the South or Bombay.

What is happening here is the engagement party of Madhuri Dixit, sort of, with Amrish Puri’s son. Jackie Shroff is a police officer, playing the title role of Ram and Anil Kapoor is the younger brother Lakhan. Madhuri is forced to accept this alliance by her father Anupam Kher, with no help from Anil Kapoor, who is away on training as Police Inspector. So, when Madhuri is asked to perform in front of the guests, she starts the bhajan, remonstrating with the Almighty, and complaining to Ram present in the party, directly. Another highlight of the song is the way Jackie Shroff is seen to be preening (in his fine feathers) almost, as the addressee and the brother of Lakhan.

Anyway, when it is Lata Mangeshkar, who is crooning “Ho Ram ji ee eee”, and Madhuri Dixit is on screen, performing, who can stay unmoved.

Hullo Atuldom

“Chaandni” (1989) from the Yashraj Films stable was produced and directed Yash Chopra. It starred Sridevi, Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Anupam Kher, Sushma Seth, Mita Vasisht, Anant Mahadevan, Manohar Singh, and Waheeda Rehman and Achala Sachdev in guest appearances. It was the story of Chandni Mathur a young effervescent young lady unsure of her emotions for two gentle men.

This was Yash Chopra’s return to his formula of love stories with good music, locales, and heavy dose of emotions and sentiments. It was very successful and also confirmed Sridevi’s position as a super actress.

It had songs written by Anand Bakshi and set to music by Shiv-Hari. Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar, Jolly Mukherjee, Nitin Mukesh, Vinod Rathod, Anupama Deshpande (the humming in the song ‘lagi aaj saawan ki phir woh jhadi hain’), Asha Bhonsle, Babla etc. were the playback singers There is even a Kishore Kumar song in the movie which had 9 songs and the blog has 7 of these.

The Kishore Kumar song has not yet been posted.

Today’s song is the surprise of the movie. I suppose this was the only song that Sridevi has sung in Hindi films. Of course, there is a song in Balu Mahendra directed “Sadma” where Sridevi’s voice was heard along with Kamal Haasan’s in the story-song ‘ek dafa ek jungle tha’ where she giggles and gives reaction to whatever Kamal was saying.

The song with this post is something which I have always wondered about. Whether it is a fantasy or flashback. I have seen this movie a number of times and I have not been able to decide. It has been shot in the picturesque Switzerland. It is one of the songs where the heroine is seen dressed environment appropriately. It also is a lesson for the lover to never meet his love without gifts.

We remember our beloved “khwaabon ki Shehzaadi” Sridevi who left us on 24th February 2018 today. She left her family, friends and countless fans shocked when the news broke over news channels in the wee hours of 25th. The general reaction was “it cannot be true”. How can a person who was so full of vitality and healthy and eagerly expecting her daughter’s first bow on the Bollywood firmament “just go!!!!” She herself just had had a release “Mom” and was seen at various award functions and TV channels. A lasting memory for me, personally, was from the TV dance reality show where she was seen shaking a leg with her contemporary Madhuri Dixit and it was a soothing sight for sore eyes. There have been posts on our blog which have her life-story, list of co-stars etc.
Thank you Sridevi for having entertained us through your life-time having started as a child-actor.

Hullo Atuldom

21st December happens to be the birthday of an entertainer who is the son of yesteryear (meaning the ’40s and ’50s) actor-producer Arun Kumar Ahuja and singer-actress Nirmala Devi. He is part of a family of 5 children -3 sisters and 2 brothers. All the children of Arun Ahuja are connected to the entertainment industry either directly or because of their children. The oldest daughter- Pushpa’s son Vinay Anand is an actor; second daughter- Padma’s son Krushna Abhishek and Arati Singh are actors; third daughter -Kamini herself is a writer, music director, singer, anchor etc.- daughter Ragini and son Amit are actors. Next of Arun Ahuja’s children is Kirti Kumar who is a director and an occasional actor. Then comes our today’s birthday boy- Govind Ahuja who gained popularity as Govinda.

Govinda started his career as an actor doing roles that were not necessarily in the comedy genre but showcased all aspects of acting viz. action, emotion, dancing etc. I remember having read his interview in magazines at the time of his debut, about how he had circulated his VHS tape to various production house that emphasized his dancing skills. I also recall reading how he had auditioned for a character in B R Chopra’s tele-series ‘Mahabharat’ before being signed by his maternal uncle Anand Singh (who happened to be Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s assistant in movies like ‘Khoobsurat’ and also played the character of Rakesh Roshan’s doctor friend in that). But ‘Tan Badan’ released after ‘Ilzaam’ and ‘Love 86’. Neelam was his heroine in many of his movies in that period.

Then he found his comic timing when he teamed up with David Dhawan in the ’90s and we found him cast opposite Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Juhi Chawla etc. We have seen him play second lead in movies of the late ’80s where Dilip Kumar, Raj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatru, Jeetu etc. played main protagonists. And Govinda says that those were learning experiences for him.

Currently we see him sharing screen-time with the likes of Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar.

Govinda has received 12 Filmfare nominations including best actor, best performance in a comic role and even a Best Villain. Yes he has played a villain too and he was very good at it in the N. Chandra directed 2000 release ‘Shikaari’. He has won 3 filmfare and numerous other awards.

It looks like his favourite male co-actors have been Shakti Kapoor (42 films), Kadar Khan (41 films), Johnny Lever (22 films), Satish Kaushik and Paresh Rawal (14 films with each).

Today’s song is from a movie that was released in 1989 but is not remembered by many I suppose. It had music by Bappi Lahiri; Anjaan and Naqsh Lyallpuri were the lyricists. From what I read on IMDB.com the story appears to be the usual masala stuff of an honest cop deciding that honesty doesn’t pay and having to encounter his own brother who has grown up to be an honest cop out to nab the cop-turned-criminal.

The cast was headed by Shashi Kapoor (possibly one of his last releases), Neelam Kothari and Govinda with Amrish Puri, Bob Christo, etc were in the supporting cast.
Here is this song from this movie. It is sung by Shabbir Kumar and AnuradhaChandrani Mukherjee. Lyricist is not known.

The song is picturised on Govinda and Neelam. It is quite a hummable song to listen to, even though the song failed to get popular.

“Farz Ki Jung”(1989) makes its debut with this song.

Kidar Sharma has often been given a title of ‘one-man film industry’. He was producer, director, actor, story/screen-play/dialogue writer, lyricist, editor, still photographer etc. He was also known to have the working knowledge of Hindustani classical music. He also sang a song on himself in the film ‘Inquilaab’ (1935). With a vast knowledge gained from working in New Theatres, Kolkata during 1933-41 and in Ranjit Movietone during 1942-47, Kidar Sharma had directed 11 films and written lyrics for 23 films before he turned producer with ‘Neel Kamal’ (1947).

Kidar Sharma had a passion for film making. Otherwise why a young man of 22 years after completing M.A. in English literature would join the New Theatres (NT) as a painter. He would have very well got the job of a lecturer in any college in around his native Punjab. His progress in filmy career was rapid. Within 2 years of joining NT, he was a still photographer and the lyricist for ‘Devdas’ (1935). he became dialogue writer for the Hindi version of ‘Vidyapati’ (1937) in addition to song writing. By 1939, Kidar Sharma had become a free-lance director with ‘Aulaad’ (1939’, his debut film as a director followed by ‘Chitralekha’ (1941) which became much talked about film. Incidentally, after about 23 years, Nadiadwala of Pushpa Films engaged Kidar Sharma to direct ‘Chitralekha’ (1964), a remake of its 1941 version.

After directing 9 films for Ranjit Movietone, Kidar Sharma decided to produce and direct ‘Neel Kamal’ (1947) under his own banner, Oriental Pictures. In fact, nobody was prepared to produce this film, not even his employer, Ranjit Movietone. So, he was forced to become the producer. He arranged finances by selling the distribution rights of the film in advance. For his maiden venture, he introduced two new comers – Raj Kapoor and Madhubala. Both the actors had done some bit roles in films before they were given the lead roles for the first time in the film. The film was an average success in terms of box office collections. Since then, Kidar Sharma has produced and directed 14 films between 1947 and 1980.

As a producer-director, Kidar Sharma was not a showman like Raj Kapoor for whom the production value in terms of star cast, techniques and costly sets for film shooting were as important as the theme of the film. On the other hand, Kidar Sharma was an antithesis of a showman. He believed in low budget film which ruled out taking star actors for the lead roles. Hence, for almost all his films which he produced and directed, he preferred new comers and his protégées to whom he had earlier introduced in his films. In this process, he gave to the Hindi film industry, popular actors like Raj Kapoor, Madhubala, Geeta Bali, Bharat Bhushan, Mala Sinha, Tanuja etc to whom he introduced in his films as lead actors for the first time. Similarly, he mostly relied on Snehal Bhatkar and Roshan as music directors for his films who were introduced by him in his films ‘Neel Kamal’ (1947) and ‘Sohag Raat’ (1948), respectively for the first time.

Kidar Sharma’s last box office successful film as a producer-director was ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950) with Raj Kapoor and Geeta Bali in the lead roles. All his subsequent films like ‘Shokhiyaan’ (1951), ‘Gunaah’ (1953), ‘Chhora Chhori’ (1954) and Rangeen Raaten’ (1956), did not fare well at the box office. All his films in the 1960s and thereafter numbering 6 either failed miserably at the box office or did not get released. I guess, ‘Sehme Huye Sitaare’ (1994) was his last film which remained unreleased in the theatres.

I have watched selectively a few films of Kidar Sharma from 1940s to 1960s. In most of his films, the story is based on a village or a small town and he tries to depict the intricate human relationships. All his films gives an impression that he had not come out of the Bengali mode of film making which were losing stream in Hindi film industry in the later 1960s where films were seen more as a medium of entertainment to fill the coppers of producers and distributors in terms of profits than covering the social issues concerning the society at large. Kidar Sharma did not fit in this milieu. So, the last 5-6 films produced and directed by him became obscure to such an extent that most of the us do not even remember the title of the films.

‘Pyaase Nain’ (1989) was one of the obscure films produced and directed by Kidar Sharma. The star cast included Kanan Kaushal, Yuvraj, Madhup Sharma, Naaz, Anant Marathe, Gauri Varma, Veena Sood with Shyama, Dev Kumar Gajanan Jagirdar, Hiralal and Maruti as guest artists. The film had 6 songs (including one song re-used from ‘Chhora Chhori’ (1954). Kidar Sharma wrote the lyrics which were set to music by Snehal Bhatkar.

The film was certified by the Censor Board on December 5, 1989. I am not aware whether the film was released in the theatres. I also do not find the gramophone/CD version the songs. Fortunately, the VCD of the film is available on one of the video sharing platforms. After watching the initial part of the film, I lost interest in watching the rest of the film. However, I have watched the picturisation of 3 songs in the film. My take on this film is as under:

1. Kanan Kaushal in 1989 was 50. But in this film, she looks much younger. Incidentally, Kanan Kaushal made her debut in Hindi film in 1969.when she was 30.

2. Of the 6 songs, one song is rendered by Mohammed Rafi with Suman Kalyanpur. The voice of Rafi sounds like his voice of the 60s. There is another duet in which Rajkumari Dubey sings for Kanan Kaushal. There are two songs by ghazal singer, Mahesh Chandra who had also sung in ‘Maikhaana’ (1967) for Kidar Sharma.

3. The treatment in the film in terms of cinematography, costumes and dialogues give an impression that this film was shot in the 60s through early 70s.

My own hunch is that the film was majorly shot between 1970 and 1975. Kanan Kaushal had become a well sought-after actress for mythological films after the tremendous success of her film ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ (1975). In the wake of her success, I do not think that she would have agreed to act in ‘Pyaase Nain’ post 1975. Going by the style of film making by Kidar Sharma in his later years, during which time he used to shoot the film as and when he could raise finance, this film must have been delayed for want of finance. By the time the film got completed, it was terribly out of date. Probably, the film got released only on Television.

One of the six songs which I liked the most from the film ‘Pyaase Nain’ (1989) is ‘aao aawaaz se aawaaz milaakar gaayen’ sung by Mohammed Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur which I am presenting here. The song is written by Kidar Sharma which is set to music by Snehal Bhatkar. When I said earlier that Rafi’s voice sounds like that of his voice in the 60s, I remember his voice in the song dil-e-betaab ko seene se lagaana hoga from ‘Paalki’ (1967). Incidentally, this song is also sung by Mohammed Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur.

With this song, ‘Pyaase Nain’ (1989) makes its debut on the Blog.
