Hullo Atuldom

“Duplicate” (release date 8/5/1998) was a movie that we went to see as a family because it had Shahrukh Khan in the lead. Those were times when we used to pick-and-choose movies which had decent or fun songs and some actor of our liking and we could take the children along. Thus we ended up seeing this ‘not-so-great’ story-wise film which was produced by Yash Johar and directed by Mahesh Bhatt. It had music by Anu Malik and lyrics were by Javed Akhtar. Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Udit Narayan and Shankar Mahadevan were the singers used. This was one of the cassette tapes that I had purchased as the kids loved its songs. Personally speaking, I enjoyed the movie as it was inane, illogical and simply masaledaar Bollywood stuff. The kind which helps us to forget ourselves during the duration of its screening.

This was Shahrukh’s first double role movie (1996 had seen him play a triple role in “English Babu Desi Mem”, but the characters he played didn’t share screen space) where he played a bumbling youngman out to get a job as a top chef in a big 5-star hotel. The other SRK was a gangster on the run. The movie opens with Manu, the gangster, trying to hoodwink the cops with the help of his girlfriend Lily (Sonali Bendre). Juhi Chawla plays Sonia Kapoor, a hotel HR Manager, who bumps into Babloo (chef SRK) when they get into the same Taxi (from different sides of course) and end up bickering about who had hailed the cab etc. The cab driver mediates and suggests that they share the fare as the destination is same- the hotel where Babloo has an interview to attend. The ride to the hotel is peppered with Babloo rehearsing for the interview and Sonia and the driver enjoying themselves. The highlight of the scene is when Babloo declares his goals in life which includes “feeding his girlfriend VADAPAV that he will make in the 5-star kitchen”. (I hope I am exact at this, Peevesie).

We had Farida Jalal playing Babloo’s mother who is disappointed with his career choice as her aim was to make him a wrestler like his father. The movie also has a sprinkling of supporting actors – Tiku Talsania whose aim is to nab Manu, Gulshan Grover playing the badman character, Sharat Saxena, Kunal Vijaykar etc. There is a guest appearance by Kajol (though I don’t recall much about that).

The songs were all fun to watch but there was one really lyrical song in the album which had Javed Akhtar at his romantic best (for this movie).This is the song with which the movie is making its debut on the blog today.

I would love it if the birthday boy would care to explain a few words of this song. I am hinting at our Dilldaar Dilliwala -Sudhirji. Last year I had wished that he didn’t run out of ‘ideas for posts and series’ and he came up with a “this week that year” series that is essentially analyzing the blog for that week 10 years ago. We are missing it for the last month and half Sirji!!! 🙂 We want more of it -‘Yeh dil maange more’.

It also happens to be Shahrukh Khan’s birthday today as also Anu Malik’s. One has ruled the hearts of his fans with his acting and the other has given songs that make the fans dance. One was born into the industry but worked his way up the ranks. The other had no filmy connection but still has had a good to very good career graph. The melodies that this team has dished out are mostly successful.

Cannot forget “kiska hai yeh tumko intezaar main hoon na” (Main Hoon Na); “ae mere humsafar ae meri jaan-e-jaan” and “yeh kaali kaali aankhen” (Baazigar); “apun bola tu meri laila” (Josh); “iss pyaar se meri taraf na dekho pyaar ho jaayega” (Chamatkar); oh there are numerous songs of this jodi that will feature in my playlist.

Anu Malik made his debut in 1977 and SRK made his debut first on Doordarshan in 1988 before Hema Malini signed him on for “Dil Aashna Hain” but his first release was “Deewana”. Both the movies had Divya Bharati as his heroine. then we had a deluge where we saw him in “Chamatkar” (first with Anu Malik as music director), “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” (first of many with Juhi Chawla), “Baazigar” (again Anu Malik and first with Kajol),etc. etc. He was given the Filmfare award for best actor for his anti-hero role in “Baazigar”. He has won awards as many as 14 Filmfare awards of which 8 are as best actor. He was awarded the Padma Shri in 2005.

Talking of Anu Malik, his father was the music director of the ’50s and ’60s. Recently I have subscribed to a channel which show evergreen classics along with programs like Sunheri Yaadein, Sitaaron Ka Caravan etc. One such treasure house program is Anmol Yaadein where in the host was interviewing Anu Malik. I saw Anu mention therein, that Sardar Malik was married to the sister of Hasrat Jaipuri. So as a child Anu, who was a fan of Shankar Jaikishan, used to pester his mama to take him along to the recordings where SJ were at work. Anu managed to meet his favourite composers through his mama (uncle Hasrat Jaipuri) and also play some music to them. Anu goes on to say that the legendary duo were impressed with Anu’s comfort when playing the Harmonium and he took it as their blessing for his future. He has worked with almost all lead singers of Bollywood starting with Manna Dey to many of the current day singers. He has been a judge on many Television shows.

Today’s song is in the voice of Kumar Sanu. It is filmed in the picturesque locales of Switzerland. In fact the church shown in this song is a famous attraction for Indian tourists and I recollect our tour operator making special mention of it as “the church where SRK has romanced a few heroines” mainly Kajol in DDLJ. This movie was not popular I suppose, or even this would have been mentioned.

Another thing which I would like to point out is the prominent use of the Tabla – Anu Malik’s favoured percussion instrument. It is used very nicely in the antara.

BTW I would love to know what is the meaning of “Katthai aankhon wali” as far as I understand the language ‘Kattha ‘ goes with ‘choona and supari’ in Paan (betel leaf).
Editors note:- (Katthai is the colour of katthai, viz bronish, so “katthai aankhon waali” means “browned eyed”.

Here is wishing our fellow Atulite a Very Very happy Birthday Sudhirji. In addition wishing the Bollywood jodi of Anu Malik and Shahrukh Khan on their birthday.

Hullo Atuldom

Wishing all a happy Dassera. I know parts of India celebrated the festival on Sunday and parts are celebrating it today. I think that has something to do with the movement of the Moon from one constellation to another or mostly the phases of the moon which doesn’t necessarily follow the Gregorian calendar. I was confused as to the exact date for Vijaya Dashami or Dassehra and put the query to a group of knowledgeable friends and this is the reply I got:

October 23 Friday 7:00 onwards Ashtami
October 24 Saturday 7:00 onwards Navami
October 25 Sunday 7:45 onwards Dashami
October 26 Monday 9:00 onwards Ekadashi.

Now going by that reply we have Dashami till 9 a.m. today but for convenience sake (read working day/ holiday) there are many (in Kerala atleast) who would have celebrated the festival. But for the pandemic even Ram Leela would have come to a close yesterday (Sunday) with RavanDahan, as Dashami was present in the evening hours. Don’t know if it was held this year!!!!

But today’s post is not a lesson on the Panchang that Indians follow and neither am I the competent authority to comment on the Sun, Moon and the planetary movements. As always my post is to wish a celebrity on turning an year older.

This celebrity is the daughter of Producer/ director of ‘Anhonee’, ‘Khel Khel Mein’ ‘Khuddar’ etc.Ravi Tandon’s daughter- Raveena Tandon turns an year older today. She made her debut in 1991, at the age of 17,in a movie produced by G.P.Sippy and directed by Anant Balani “PattharKePhool” which had Salman Khan as the hero. She then went on to act with Sunny Deol, Govinda, Akshay Kumar, Shahrukh Khan, Anil Kapoor. 1994 saw her star in “Zamaane Se Kya Darna” with Sanjay Dutt, “Dilwale” with Suneil Shetty and Ajay Devgan, “Insaniyat” with Sunny Deol, “Imtihaan” with Saif Ali Khan and Sunny Deol, “Laadla” with Anil Kapoor, “Andaz Apna Apna” with Aamir Khan, “Aatish” again Sanjay Dutt and Mohra with Akshay Kumar. She also played herself in a song-cameo in Saif Ali Khan- Akshay Kumar starrer “Main Khiladi Tu Anari” and a role in a Tamil movie in 1994. She took a hiatus post marriage but was seen in a cameo in PuriJagannadh directed “Bbuddah… Hoga Tera Baap” (2011) as she got a chance to do a romantic scene with Amitaabh Bachchan whose sister she had played in “Bade MiyanChhoteMiyan” in the ‘90s. Since 2011 we see her in a movie or two per year plus she has conducted a few shows on television. On her personal front, she had adopted two young girls when they were 10 and 8 when she herself was only in her 20s. After marriage she has two children of her own.

Her most popular song of the 1994 earned her the nickname the ‘mast mast’ girl. Though she has never claimed to be ‘Mast’ meaning wonderful. So also the other birthday personality.
He is our own Rajaji. He is (to use a Hindi expression) a ‘yaaron ka yaar’. He is a devoted family man. He is deeply sensitive and touched by many current occurrences in this world of ours. But the one thing that introduced us to him or shall I say the two things that got us connected to him-Cricket and Hindi Film Music are also dear to his heart.

He can write pages and pages about his love for the works of Sahir Ludhianvi and ponder about what would have been Sahir’s take on the life in this age and time. And he can do the same when he writes posts on his favourite Rajesh Khanna, Dev Anand, Mohd Rafi. He has told me that he can keep listening to Rafi songs all day and night and not tire of it. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t appreciate Kishore Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan etc. He claims that he is just discovering movies of the 80s which he had banished for their deteriorating quality and quantity, he gives them a “Pass” certificate only no high marks to them. But even there he may relish and enjoy individual scene of the typical masala kind. I am sure he will enjoy the visual that the accompanying song has to offer.

It has the comic cop Paresh Rawal running around trying to dance in step with Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon. We have Tej Sapru exchanging a briefcase with an associate (would like to know who it is). Suniel Shetty is stalking them and please keep in mind that Akshay Kumar is a cop in disguise out to catch Tej Sapru and his associate.

This is a new age song which should appeal to the other birthday girl of this group. She is not an active participant and her father is. I hope she is a “Mast” child, meaning wonderful child.
There is another person, my first playmate, who has her birthday today. I cannot imagine how I was as a toddler before she entered my family in the arms of my Mom.
With this post I wish Raveena Tandon, Rajaji and the two unnamed girls “A Very Happy Birthday” May God bless them with lots of Health and Happiness.

Hullo Atuldom

Today we are remembering a celebrity who began his life as a Professor of Civil Engineering in a Mumbai engineering college. A huge fan of Dilip Kumar, he was spotted by comedian Agha when he was performing in a play “Taash ke Pattey”. The play was recommended to Dilip saab who saw it, and signed this Professor/ stage actor for “Sagina” and “Bairaag”. This was the start of a career that spanned from the ’70s to 2019 – Govinda starrer Rangeela Raja released in 2019.

This post is about Kadar Khan who was born in Kabul to Afghan parents. He was educated in Mumbai and graduated as a civil engineer. His career as a writer in Bollywood took off when he was offered to co-write the script of “Jawaani Diwaani” by Narinder Bedi. This was followed by dialogue, script writing for over 200 films in addition to acting in around 300.

I am unable to decide if he was a better actor or writer. I am unable to decide if he evoked more emotion in the public as a villain or comic character actor. I am in love with his pairing with Govinda in both serious and comic roles. There are many movies to choose from where they have showcased their comic timing but that does not mean that they couldn’t emote serious situations. They have played grandfather -grandson in “Jaisi Karni Waisi Bharni”, father-n-son in “Haseena Maan Jaayegi”, “Sindoor”; father-in law son-in-law in “Dulhe Raja”. I don’t know if David Dhawan brought out the best in them. But it is to Rajesh Khanna’s credit that Manmohan Desai paid Kadar Khan handsomely for writing the dialogues of “Roti” in 1974.

I loved him as the lovable old man in “Gharwali Baharwali”, “Saajan Chale Sasural”, “Mr & Mrs Khiladi”. He was cute as the outwardly-submissive husband of Bindu in “Biwi Ho To Aisi”. He played a similar character with Shashikala as his wife in “Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani” (1988). He has played serious characters too as in “Yaarana”, “Adalat”, “Roti”, “Tohfa”- there is a whole list of such films.
He has had a few songs picturized on him in his long and illustrious career. Some have been philosophical and some have been funny. He has also tried to dance in some of these songs and it used to be rather cute to see.

In today’s song too, we see Kadar Khan play a slightly old character who is frustrated by the presence of a “Dhaaba” in the premises of his five star hotel. He has tried all possible tactics to evict the dhabbawala. The competition in the song is one such attempt.

This song is written by Sameer and Anand- Milind are the music composers. It is sung by Vinod Rathod and Sonu Nigam. The song has a lot of well-known couplets strung together rather imaginatively and that had made it appealing to the younger generation of that period. Besides being a song from my own ‘list of loved songs’ it also belonged to my dad’s list. He must have seen this movie every time it came on television and so have I. I am sure that the song was inspired by the song from “Padosan”- “ek chatur naar” going by the way the characters are emoting- all over the top.

The movie had Raveena Tandon as his daughter and Johnny Lever played Kadar Khan’s Man-Friday who is in cahoots with the dhabbawala -Govinda- who feels that he should be the “Dulhe Raja” of the hotel owner Singhania -played by Kadar Khan.

“Dulhe Raja” released on 10th July 1998. This was one of the 13 films that released in 1998 with Kadar Khan in the cast, he was definitely a busy 60-year old in that year.

The series of “Dheere dheere songs” has been in the making since May 2019 starting with this post. But nothing to worry about, as I am keeping track of these posts and will give a recap in the final post of the series.

Next song in this series is this multiple version song from the film Phool aur Kaante- 1991. The music director are the duo Nadeem Sharavan, with their trusted team member Sameer being lyricist. Sameer holds the records for having written highest number of film song. The singers are Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik.

Myswar.com has listed three versions of the song, a duet and Alka Yagnik solo of “Dheere dheere pyar ko badhaana hai” and a sad duet version with slight change in words of mukhda “dheere dheere hausla badhaana hai”. I was not able to find the Alka Yagnik solo, so the lyrics and links are given for the happy and sad duet versions.

Two songs of this film are posted 10 years apart in the blog 2009 & 2019:

Song Date posted
Tumse milne ko dil kartaa hai 11 June 2009
Maine pyaar tumhi se kiya hai 11 June 2019

Actually this song already posted in the series is inspired by Joyce Sims’ “Come into my life” (1987). On first hearing, the similar things between the songs are the similar words of “meri zindagi mei naana” and “come into my life”, plus the same guitar interlude at the beginning of both songs. But some work on the part of lyricist and music director is definitely involved in creating a lovely Indian sounding song. Aashiqui was in 1990, and this movie “Phool aur Kaante” was in 1991. Come to think of it, this “dheere dheere” is having a similar tune to the Aashiqui song.

Dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
Dheere dheere se dil ko churaana

Dheere dheere pyaar ko badhaana hai
Hadd se guzar jaana hai

“Phool aur Kaante” was Ajay Devgan’s debut film and Madhoo was the heroine. The song’s both versions are picturised on them. I know that I have seen this movie at Bandra’s “Gaiety” cinema. But to recollect the actual happenings in the story is another thing. I visited the imdb page to get snippets of story etc. so can’t say it was a memorable film. And no, they haven’t translated the name of this movie to “Flower and Thorns” 🙂 🙂 .

dheere dheere pyaar ko badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai
dheere dheere pyaar ko badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai
mujhe bas tujhse dil lagana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

dheere dheere pyaar ko badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

aisi zindagi hogi
har taraf khushi hogi
itna pyaar doonga tujhe
ae mere sanam
ab na koi gham hoga
na ye pyaar kam hoga
saathi mere mujhko tere sar ki hai kasam

ek dooje ko aazmaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai
dheere dheere pyar ko badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

main akela kya karta
aise hi aahen bharta
tere pyaar ke liye tadapta umr bhar
jaane kya main kar jaati
yoon tadap ke mar jaati
bin tere bhala kaise kat’ta ye safar

tere liye mar ke bhi dikhaana hai
had se guzar jaana hai
dheere dheere pyaar ko badhana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

tera chaand sa mukhda
tu jigar ka hai tukda
tu humaare sapnon ki jheel ka kanwal

jaan se tu hai pyaara aankhon ka tu hai taara
bin tere jiyenge ab hum na ek pal
sab kuch tujhpe hi lutaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

dheere dheere pyaar ko badhana hai
had se guzar jaana hai
mujhe bas tujhse dil lagaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

ho o
hadd se guzar jaana hai
haan
hadd se guzar jaana hai

hansi dhoondh laayenge
miljul ke baant lenge
zindagi ke gham

aansu na bahaayenge
hansi dhoondh laayenge

zindagi ke gham

bachh ke kahaan jaayegi
khushiyaan laut aayengi
haarenge na waqt ki in
aandhiyon se ham
dheere dheere hausla badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai
dheere dheere pyaar ko badhaana hai
hadd se guzar jaana hai

This is the last song and culmination of a short series of posts about inspired/copied songs. The team of creators of this song from Sangharsh(1999) is Jatin-Lalit, Sameer and Sonu Nigam. This inspiration behind this song is the OPN song from “Ek Musaafir Ek Hasina”.

This is the list of the five songs posted so far in this series:

Song Posted on
Tu meri zindagi hai 21 Sep 2020
Bhoori bhoori aankhon waala ek ladka hai 28 Sep 2020
Love ki ghanti baj gayi meri 28 Sep 2020
Raaja ko raani se pyaar ho gaya 1 Oct 2020
Saathiya tu mere sapnon ka meet hai 6 Oct 2020

Before internet and Youtube, it may have been easy to simply copy or lift a song created by someone else and pass it off as your own. Lay persons who are not actually conversant with music and composition process would not be able to find a link.

There is the famed instance of Madan Mohan doing this sort of thing, and using the tune from Sajjad Hussain’s “Sangdil” song “Ye hawa ye raat ye chaandni”, for his song “Tujhe kya sunaaun main dilruba” in “Aakhri Daao” (1958). In fact Madan Mohan went on to use the same tune for the song “hai isi mein pyar ki aabroo” in Anpadh (1962).

In fact, the tune is also very similar for this ghazal rendition in Laal Qila.

Coming back to the song from Sangharsh(1999), the singer Sonu Nigam is trying to sing the style of Kishore Kumar, which he does in many songs, but here the precedent is a Rafi rendition. It appears to a deliberate attempt to make the song sound different from the “Ek Musafir Ek Haseena” song.

I have seen this movie on cable TV, so can try to give a bit of the background. It was about the horrors of ‘child sacrifice’ and black magic like issues that are a part of ancient dogmas prevalent in some parts. Practices like child sacrifice for attaining immortality. Ashutosh Rana played the character of the tantric/fanatic, which is looking to sacrifice a particular child of certain physical attributes, at a particular time and hour determined by some principles of black magic on a full moon night. The takeaway of the film was Ashutosh Rana’s performance as the tantric.

Priety Zinta is a police officers who is assigned to solve this case of case of saving the child kidnapped by the tantric.

Akshay Kumar is a professor in jail, the crime is unclear. Priety Zinta needs Akshay’s help to solve the case and save the child from being sacrificed.

The topic was certainly unique, never dealt before in hindi films. Priety Zinta visits Akshay Kumar in jail and he manages to spook her so much that she calls her friend Aman Verma in Delhi to share her fear and insecurity. Aman Verma is trying to reassure her divert her attention from her fears of past and present by singing this song on the phone.

So this is a phone song too. The funny part is Aman Verma’s phone goes dead while is song is still going on, he goes to a public phone booth to complete the song. Complete it does, with the donkeys surrounding the phone booth 🙂 🙂

‘Ulfat’ was the maiden offer from K Razdan, the producer. The film was directed by K Shankar, who had directed many Tamil and Telugu films apart from some Hindi films such as ‘Bharosa’ (1963), ‘Rajkumar’ (1964), ‘Sachaai’ (1969), ‘Parde Ke Peeche’ (1971), ‘Chhote Sarkaar’ (1974), ‘Raja’ (1975) etc. The main star cast consisted of Raaj Kumar, Sadhana, Waheeda Rehman, Nazir Hussain, Agha, Shammi, Gulshan Bawra, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo, Mohan Choti, Sundar etc.

K Razdan started his career as a film publicist and Public Relation Officer for some film productions houses and actors. He was associated with Guru Dutt Films, Ashok Kumar Films, Sippy Films, Sagar Films, Vishal International Productions of Manoj Kumar etc. ‘Ulfat’ was his maiden film as well as the last film as a producer. Why did the film ‘Ulfat’ which went to the floor sometime in early 1970s, take so much time to complete?

I had read an article on Raaj Kumar in ‘Daily Hunt’ in which there was a paragraph on Raaj Kumar creating problems for K Razdan, the producer during the shooting of the film. For trivial issues, Raaj Kumar used to have problems with other actors and crew members. For instance, Raaj Kumar did not like Cinematographer, G Singh for his habit of scratching his beard while filming the shoot. One can observe from the credit title of the film that there were 3 cinematographers listed for the film.

Fed up with his tantrums, K Razdan filed a suit in the court against Raaj Kumar. While it is not known as to what was the outcome of the suit, Razdan was happy that at least he made Raaj Kumar to sit on a wooden bench in the court room with commoners during the court hearings. K Razdan decided to expose Raaj Kumar by writing a book, ‘Nark Yatra’ sharing his experiences of working with Raaj Kumar. However, he refrained from publishing the book. Finally, in disgust, K Razdan abandoned the film left unfinished. He continued to work as film publicist and PRO in the Hindi film industry till 1990.

Raaj Kumar has been known for his eccentricity. His decision to take charge of the unfinished film in early 1990s with good amount of investment was nothing less than a part of his eccentric behaviour. He required Sadhana for shooting a college scene and a romantic song with him. However, she flatly refused to join the shooting. Her rejection is understandable as in early 1990s, Sadhana was around 50 and Raaj Kumar was 64. The audience would not have appreciated watching both of them in a college scene and singing a romantic song!

Finally, Raaj Kumar completed the film by using a double for shooting the unfinished scenes of Sadhana with long shots and her back to the camera in close-up scenes. Of other actors, only Waheeda Rehman agreed to resume shooting for her parts. The dialogues for the left-over scenes were written by Raaj Kumar himself. Panini, his younger son, provided the background music. Obviously, with a long delay in completing the film with patched-up works, the film was out of date. There were no takers for distributing the films. Finally, according to a comment on one of the songs uploaded on the video sharing platform, the film was released under a new title. ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) on VHS tapes in August 1994 for satellite TVs. I am not sure whether the film had a theatrical release anytime thereafter.

I have no idea about the story of ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994). Looking at the star cast of the film, the story appears to be a love triangle. All the 5 songs of the film which was released by HMV on LP in 1978 were retained in the film. 4 songs were written by Rajinder Krishan while one song which Qateel Shifai had already written for a Pakistani film in the early 70s was used with a new tune. All the songs were set to music by Kalyanji-Anandji.

I am presenting the first song, ‘bahaaron se kahenge nazaaron se kahenge’ from ‘Ulfat’ (1978, UR/‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) to appear on the Blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi on the words of Rajinder Krishan. Kalyanji-Anandji composed the music. The song is picturised on Raaj Kumar and a double of Sadhana.

At first, I was not too keen to provide the link of the video clip of the song which was probably taken from VHS tape of the film. The visuals are very bad and audio quality is average. Also, it is a shorter clip than the audio clip which was released in 1978 under the film’s original title ‘Ulfat’. One can make out from the visuals in video clip that the female actor is not Sadhana but her double. The audio clip of the song is excellent in audio quality and is longer. In the audio clip, there is also a bonus addition of the sad version of the song with dialogues between Raaj Kumar and Sadhana.

With this song, ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) makes its debut on the Blog.

01/10/2020 – 101st Birth anniversary of Majrooh Sultanpuri.
—————————————————————————-
Mujh se kaha jibrayil e junoon ne ye bhi vahi-e-ilaahi hai
Mazhab to bas mazhab-e-dil hai baaqi sab gumraahi hai

The Angel(of obsession) tells me that this too is divine decree,
The religion of love is the faith, rest all is deception

Dekh zindaan se pare, rang-e-chaman josh-e-bahaar
Raqs karna hai to phir paaon ki zanjeer na dekh

Look far away from the dungeons, towards the colourful garden and spirited spring
Want to dance (fly), than don’t be bothered by the limitation of feet.

Bahaane aur bhi hote hain zindagi ke liye
Ham ek baar teri aarzu bhi kho dete

There could be other reasons to live
Had the hopes of you been lost.

Jafaa ke zikr pe tum kyun sambhal ke baitth gaye
Tumhari baat nahi baat hai zamaane ki

When there is talk of unfaithfulness (or deception/tyranny), you are alert.
This is not about you, but lamenting is for the world at large.

Bacha liya mujhe toofan ki mauj ne warna
Kinaare wale safeena mera dubo dete

The tall waves of the storm have sheltered me, otherwise
the idle waves of the coast were bent on sinking my (last)boat.

Rok saktaa hamen zindaan-e-balaa kya majrooh
Ham to aawaz hain deewar se chhan jaate hain

Can the darkened holes of adversity stop us Majrooh
We are those sound waves which pierce the walls

Zaban hamaari na samjha yahan koyi Majrooh
Ham ajnabi ki tarah apne hi watan mein rahe

No one understands the words we speak, Majrooh.
We stayed as outsiders in our own homeland.

tujhe na maane koyi tujh ko iss se kya Majrooh
chal apni raah bhatakne de nukta-chinon ko

Don’t bother if they believe you or not Majrooh
Go on your way, let those critics wander around

———————————————————-

There is no better way of describing a poet and paying tribute to him, than quoting some of his work. So the major part of this post is going to be taken up by Majrooh sahab’s sukhan or kalaam. Today is the 101st birth Anniversary of the poet from Sultanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, the state in India which is the known as the ‘gehwara’ of urdu civilization. There are great shua’ra from other parts of the country, but those poets will also agree that UP is essentially the cradle of urdu. Like all children, the ‘khari boli’ urdu has also grown up and left the cradle. So that other children may enjoy the same nourishment and contentment that urdu had in its childhood.

Maybe some caravan’s upped and left the homeland and took their belongings. The cradle did not want to go away from the roots, so they took the embellishments and the toys from the cradle, and left if bereft. But some of the old dolls and some pillows were not taken with them as there was not enough space. They remained with the cradle and they strived to make the gehwara, the playground of urdu. Majrooh Sultanpuri is one of those old pillows which graced the old cradle.

After all this sentimentality, I don’t wish to write more. I have written a few posts about Majrooh and so have other contributors, in the past. So I will let his poetry do the talking.

I am reproducing one of his famous ghazals here :

Jab hua i’rfaan to gham aaraam-e-jaan bantaa gayaa
Soz-e-janaan dil mein soz-e-digaraan bantaa gayaa

Rafta rafta munqalib hoti gayi rasm e chaman
Dhire dhire naghma e dil bhi fughan bantaa gayaa

Main akelaa hi chala thha jaanib e manzil magar
Log saathh aate gaye aur kaarwaan bantaa gayaa

Main to jab jaanun ki bhar de saaghar e har khaas o a’am
Yun to jo aaya wohi peer e mughaan bantaa gayaa

Jis taraf bhi chal pade ham aabla-paayaan e shauq
Khaar se gul aur gul se gulistaan bantaa gayaa

Sharh-e-gham to mukhtasar hoti gayee uss ke huzoor
Lafz jo munh se na niklaa daastaan bantaa gayaa

Dahr mein majrooh koyi javedaan mazmoon kahaan
Main jise chhutaa gayaa wo javedaan bantaa gayaa

The song with this post is written by Majrooh sultanpuri, and the music director is Anu Malik. It is from Akele ham Akele Tum (1995). Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik are the singers. Aamir Khan and Manisha Koirala are the actors in the film, who are singing it on screen.

This is the fourth song in the ‘inspired/copied’ song series. The inspiration behind this song is “The Godfather theme” .

During the tough months of April/May, someone posed this quiz in the family group on whatsapp :

“What is it that connects, The Godfather, Arvind Swamy and Anu Malik ?”.

This song is the answer to the quiz.

dil jigar donon ghaayal huye
teer-e-nazar dil ke paar ho gayaa aa

Hullo Atuldom

“Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke” (1993) had six songs, four of which are already on the blog as under,

Bambai Se Gayi Poona, Poona Se Gayi Dilli” – a wonderful post describing life at the various “pur”s and one “Nagar” and had 31 comments

Yoon Hi Kat Jaayega Safar Saath Chalne Se” – 3000th day of blog, post by Rajaji

Ghoonghat Ki Aad Se Dilbar Ka” – has a synopsis of the movie

and “Mujhse Muhabbat Ka Izhaar Karta“.

Here is the next one.

It is inside a garment Factory. Aamir Khan (Rahul) is trying to get his sister’s or jija’s factory running so that he can look after his niece and nephew/s who are not in a mood to accept him as their  guardian. To add to Rahul’s troubles the ladies working in the factory are in a mood to ‘rag’ their new boss. The songs were written by Sameer and tuned by Nadeem Shravan. It is sung by Kedarnath Bhattacharya popular as Kumar Sanu.

We are revisiting this movie to remember Tahir Hussain on his birth anniversary (19th September 1938- 10th february 2010) who was the producer of HHRPK (acronym of the movie). Incidentally Aamir Khan (hero of HHRPK) is his son and he was the main lead in two movies of TV Films, Tahir Hussain’s production house. Tahir Hussain, who was the brother of Nasir Hussain (maker of some classics of the 60s, 70s, 80s etc.) has classics like ‘Caravan’ (1971), ‘Anamika’ (1973), ‘Zakhmee’ (1975) etc. to his name as producer. He was the director of ‘Tum Mere Ho’ starring Aamir Khan in 1990.

20th September also happens to be the birth-date of the director of HHRPK -Mahesh Bhatt. He turns 72. He is known for movies that focused on relationships for example ‘Arth’, ‘Saransh’, even his initial ‘Lahu Ke Do Rang’ showed the relation between half-brothers played by Vinod Khanna and Danny almost like ‘Naam’ starring Kumar Gaurav and Sanjay Dutt. Mahesh Bhatt movies also had other regular Bollywood masala in it – action, emotion, drama and great music/ songs.

Hullo Atuldom

We are into the last four months of the year. Just got the first positive message “Sab theek raha toh iss baar 31 December ko nayaa saal aane ki nahi, purana saal jaane ki party karenge”. (Wish I could write this in Devnagari) I am sure I need not translate this.

Just as I was sitting to write this our Peevesie messaged that “Josef-Born in Grace”, a movie that was her first independent assignment as costume designer, has won an award at the Madrid International Film Festival for Best Set Design at the awards function on Sunday evening (6th September). Incidentally that movie also got her, her life-partner and is from her in-law’s production house.
In a celebratory mood I asked her for her farmaish of an Asha Bhonsle song and today’s song is her choice. She has a love for that movie, its songs and the dress/costume (in particular) that Amisha Patel wore in the song. She reminds me that as a tiny-little girl she had also worn a similar Pink Skirt and White Top.

This movie is 20 years old. It made its debut on the blog in 2014 with the song ek-pal-ka-jeena-phir-to-hai-jaana. That was a post to wish the hero of the movie. Today’s song is to wish our evergreen Ashatai (as Asha Bhonsle is addressed by one and all).

Ashatai celebrates her 87th birthday today. She was the third born to Pandit Deenanath Mangeshkar and his wife Shevanti, Lata Mangeshkar being the oldest. I read somewhere recently that her older sister Meena Khadikar shares her birthdate (would love if someone can confirm this). Usha Mangeshkar and Hridaynath Mangeshkar are the other siblings, part of this musical clan. Their children and grandchildren are also into music and carrying the family tradition forward.

Followers of the blog are aware that she began singing in films when she was hardly 10 years old with a Marathi song in 1943. Her first Hindi song came in 1948 when she sang under Hansraj Behl’s music direction. She has had a long innings since then and initially she used to get songs that were filmed on the second lead or vamps etc. I don’t think that there is any need to write about how she sang more songs than many other artists in the ‘50s though for B and C grade movies. She had to work so that her family could be taken care of. She worked her way up the rungs of the industry and became the favourite of the masses and classes. If the masses loved her “piya tu ab toh aaja” the connoisseurs and classes loved her for her “in aankhjon ki masti ke” and ‘dil cheez kya hai aap meri jaan lijiye”. People have loved her “aage bhi jaane na tu” and “mera kuch saaman tumhaare paas pada hai”.

Today’s song is a party song. It is on board a yacht and is part of the Christmas eve celebrations. Amisha Patel has just found that she likes Hrithik Roshan who is as yet unaware of his feelings. She sings and dances to try and make him envious and displays her fondness for her childhood friend Rajesh Tandon. Payal Malhotra or Kamya Punjabi (not sure) is the girl who is trying to get Hrithik’s attentions. This song is written by Saawan Kumar and is the only Asha Bhonsle song in the movie all the other songs are sung by Alka Yagnik. Rajesh Roshan is the music director.

Here is wishing our darling Ashatai a very Happy Birthday

Remembering Rishi Kapoor on his 68th Birth Anniversary :

A journey started on 4th September, 1952. Rishi Kapoor’s life journey through his histrionics in tinsel town, starting with his father’s epic “Mera naam joker”, to the chocolate boy in ‘Bobby’ to the authentic Majnoo in “Laila Majnu” to the slick tycoon in “ Yeh Wada raha”, via the semi-villain in ‘Hum kisi se kam nahi”, with a heart of gold, no less. The hapless husband of ‘‘Damini” , the sacrificing lover boy of ‘Chaandni”, mark the fulfilling journey and career of a shining star with the a extra twinkle in the eyes. The nick name Chintu Kapoor suited him. And great things do come in small packages, or so I have heard.

Rishi Kapoor has more than justified the Kapoor khandaan’s legacy, with a kaleidoscope of films which people want to see again and again , just for his expressions and acting. I have just now seen the song .

This is one song I keep forgetting to mention while talking about RDB’s songs. In the song, though Rishi Kapoor is sitting in the restaurant and watching the song, it is clear who is emoting the best effect of the feel of the song. Clearly he was among the best actors of 70’s and 80’s heroes. May be Rajesh Khanna and Sanjeev Kumar were better than him, not counting Amitabh bachchan here.

Rishi Kapoor lost the battle to cancer on 30th April 2020, while the entire world was reeling under the ‘pandamic’. I could not pay a proper tribute to him at that time, so I am trying to do it now.

The pandemic’s lasting after affects are emerging like the rippling of the volcano. We all need to deal with these in a calm and collected manner, and keep faith that the things will improve in near and distant future.

Here is a small ghazal, for motivation:

– Kabhi maayoos mat honaa –

Main maantaa hoon waba’a ke din hain
Magar yeh din bhi khudaa ke din hain

Dilon se maayoosiyaan nikaalo
Zara sa aage shifa’a ke din hain

Guzar gayi umr ghaflaton mein
Yahi to rab se wafaa ke din hain

———-

Waba’a – widespread illness
Shifa’a – recovery from illness
Ghaflat – carelessness

Coming to the song, it is from the film “Deewaana”(1992). Singer is Kumar Sanu of this lengthy, long mukhdaa and long stanza’s song. Sameer is the lyricist and Nadeem-Shrawan are the music directors.

The following two songs from this film were posted way back in March 2009:
Paayaliyaa ho ho ho ho
Aisi deewaanagi

Someone made this comment in 2020 to this 28 year old song, on youtube :

कल के मधुर संगीत ,
आज के भंगार संगीत
जमीन आसमान का फर्क

Can’t disagree here, as the song is really “madhur”. This was also a personal favourite in 1992, though I might have seen this film on cable TV. The late Divya Bharti is the heroine with Rishi Kapoor, with Shah Rukh khan playing a third in a negative role, this character is not with a heart of gold 🙂 .

Rishi Kapoor is singing this song on stage with a bevy of dancers(One too many), my memory did not recall the extra dancers on stage. At least they are not in garish colour, so everyone is in heavenly sparkling white.

And may the departed souls rest in heavenly peace.

Sochenge tumhe pyar karen ke nahin – Deewana(1992)

Song-Sochenge tumhen pyaar karen ke nahin (Deewaana)(1992) Singer-Kumar Sanu, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Nadeem Shrawan
