hullo to all Atulwaasis

May-June is the time when Indians or more importantly students and their parents are at their jitteriest. These are the months that the Indian education system has chosen to declare results of exams held in the months of February-March. Exams that puts the knowledge gained by students through the year to test. The students are required to revise everything learnt; in a year; in about a month of study leave (we as students had study leave of a month, I would love to know of the current scenario) and pour out everything in about 2½ to 3 hours; on to an answer sheet and then pray that what they have answered fetches them marks that are enough to get them further in life.

I came across a nice number from ‘Police Public’ (1990) by chance when I happened to click here on a Lollywood number “Mein Jis Din Bhula Doon Tera Pyar Dil Se” penned by Masroor Anwar for Khushboo (1979). On that YouTube web-page, I also noticed the same mukhda under this ‘Police Public’ number.

Similar – or even identical – mukhdas are not all that rare; and Lollywood and Bollywood copying each other’s themes, tunes and lyrics was not unheard of in the yesteryears. But what struck me was almost identical lyrics – albeit in different settings and tunes.

Be it as it may be, ‘Police Public’, a Vijay Mehta production, was directed by Esmayeel Shroff. It has a crime-corruption busting theme with Raaj Kumar as a fearless senior C.B.I. inspector as its chief protagonist.

DRISHTI (1990) was produced and directed by Govind Nihalani who was also the cinematographer of the film. The star cast included those actors who at that time, were usually associated with parallel cinema. Shekhar Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia were in the lead roles of husband and wife while Mita Vashisht and Vijay Kashyap were in the roles of another couple. Irfan Khan, Neena Gupta, Navneet Nishan and Tabassum Mansoori had small but important roles in the film. It is said that the film was a remake of a TV Series ‘Scenes from a Marriage’ (1973) directed by Ingmar Bergman. The film failed at the box office but was critically acclaimed. The film won the National Film Award for the best feature film in Hindi.

Today (23 october 2014) is the festival of deepaawali. This festival is supposed to bring joy and happiness in the lives of everyone. I can certainly vouch for that. My main computer that has been hijacked by my wife for the last few days was surprisingly available to me this morning. I wake up earlier than others on the pretext of letting the dog out and teaching the daughter. The dogs were wide awake as usual but my daughter (and wife) are not (as usual). That gave me the opportunity of sitting on my main computer and try and give finishing touch to the posts for the day.

Continuing on my series of articles on some of the offbeat films (also called parallel or middle cinemas), I have taken up for discussion an NDFC promoted film ‘Thhoda Saa Roomaani Ho Jaaye’ (1990). The film was produced and directed by Amol Palekar. The main roles were played by Nana Patekar, Anita Kanwar and Vikram Gokhale with actors like Banwari Taneja, Dilip Kulkarni, Riju Bajaj, Arun Joglekar and Deepa Lagoo donning the supporting roles. The film was extensively shot in and around Pachmadi in Madhya Pradesh. The film was critically acclaimed but flopped miserably on the box office. I get an impression from the films clips in two parts available on YT that the it was later released on Doordarshan.

Most Rakhi songs in this blog are from the golden era of HFM, viz from 1950s to 1970s, though Rakhi songs from 1930s, 40s and 80s have also been discussed in the past.

Here is a Rakhi song from the 1990s. This picturisation is intesteting. It shows a Mithun da covered from head to toes in Rakhis arrive at his residence where his three sisters are waiting for him. The sisters cannot even identify him, before the small kid accompanying Mithun da explains that Mithun Da had saved several girls from the clutches of baddies and the grateful girls had tied him with rakhis all over his body, including face. 🙂

shahar ki raat aur main naashaad o naakaara phiroon
jagmagaati jaagti sadakon pe aawaara phiroon
ae gham e dil kya karoon
ae vahshat e dil kya karoon

This is the mukhda of a very popular song from the film ‘Thokar’ (1953). Most of the lovers of old Hindi film songs would know that the song was rendered by Talat Mehmood and there is a version song sung by Asha Bhonsle. Many among them may also be aware that the song was composed by music director Sardar Malik. But I am not sure as to how many would to know the name of the poet who created this beautiful nazm of despair and loneliness. I was one among them. Many years later, I came to know that it was the creation of Majaz. Then the next question – who was Majaz?. I had no inclination then in seeking an answer to this question.

Connoisseurs of Urdu poetry may recall that sometime in early 90s, Doordarshan televised a TV serial KAHAKASHAN covering the lives of six of the doyens of Urdu poetry – Firaq Gorakhpuri, Hasrat Mohani, Jigar Moradabadi, Josh Malihabadi, Majaz Lacknawi and Makhdoom Mohiuddin. This TV serial was produced by another well known Urdu poet and writer, Ali Sardar Jafri, the contemporary of these galaxy of poets. The serial was directed by Jalal Agha. I had seen some of the episodes of this serial in the 90s but did not remembered much of the contents. A few months back, I came across the episodes of this TV serial on the internet. I have already watched the episodes covering Firaq Gorakhpuri and Majaz Lucknawi. The treatment in the serial is biographical in nature covering some of the important events in the lives of these poets interspersed with their own ghazals many of which were sung Jagjit Singh who also composed the music for the TV serial. Watching the episodes covering these two Urdu poets, to say the least, was a heart wrenching experience for me as the lives of these two poets were full of pains, misery, misfortunes and loneliness. My curiosity to learn more about these six Urdu poets grew after I had watched this T V serial.

Having stayed in Mumbai for over 60 years, I have a fair knowledge of Marathi but not as good as Hindi and English being my medium of instructions in school and college days respectively. In my younger days, I used to often listen to some non-filmy Marathi songs on the radio as also during some public functions like Ganesh festival. Of these, two Marathi songs which created interest in me to listen to more Marathi songs were “mee dolkar dolkar dolkar dariya cha raaja” ( I am a boatman, the king of sea) sung by Hemant Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar and “ne majsi ne matrabhumi laa, sagara praan talmal laa” (O sea, take me back to my motherland. My heart aches for her) sung by all the five Mangeshkars – Lata, Asha, Usha, Meena and Hridaynath. Both these songs were composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar probably in the late 60s or early 70s. These two songs were my first introduction to Hridaynath Mangeshkar.

Most of the songs that I post in this blog are from 1970s and earlier. After 1980s, I more or less lost track of Bollywood movies and its music. And that more or less coincided with deterioration in the quality of Bollywood songs as well.
