Today’s song is from a very recent movie ‘Salaami-1993’.

This movie had made its debut on the blog during its early days and that was on 30.11.2008. It means that the second song of this movie is now appearing after a gap of 12 years, 6 months, and 6 days or after 4570 days. (including 04.06.2021).

This movie had some nice songs in it and the most popular song ‘chehra kya dekhte ho’ has already been posted on the blog.

Today we listen to another well known song from this movie which is a multiple version songs in the voices of Pankaj Udhas and Alka Yagnik.

“Salaami-1993” was directed by Sharukh Sultan for ‘Tess Mirza Films Pvt Ltd.’ It was ‘Venus Records and Tapes Pvt Ltd’ presentation.

This movie was produced by Tess Mirza. It had Ayyub Khan, Samyukta and Raushni Jafery (both debutant), with Kabir Bedi, Beena, Goga Kapoor, Lalita Shukla and Saeed Jafery. They were supported by Brij Kishore, Virendra Singh, Kishore, Vinkoo Bhalla, Romi, Binder Agarwal.

Sharukh Sultan the director of this movie was also the write of this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Mushtaq Jalili and Sharukh Sultan. Editing of this movie was done by Sakharam Borse.

This movie was passed by censor board on 23.11.1993.

Music for this movie was composed by Nadeem-Sharvan.
This movie had nine songs (including two multiple version songs) written by Sameer, Madan Pal, Surendra Sathi and Anwar Sagar.

Singers Asha Bhonsle, Kumar Sanu, Pankaj Udhas, Alka Yagnik and Kavita Krishnamurthy had given their voices to the songs of this movie.

As mentioned above one song from this movie was posted on the blog on 30.11.2008.

Today’s song is a multiple version song, where the solo version is sung by Pankaj Udhas and the duet version is sung by Alka Yagnik with Pankaj Udhas. Lyrics are written by Sameer and music is composed by Nadeem-Shravan.

In picturisation of the solo song we can see Ayyub Khan lip syncing to the voice of Pankaj Udhas, actress Samyukta (I guess) and others. I am unable to guess the other actor in this song.

While video of the solo version is available, I could not locate the video of the duet version.

I would request readers who have watched this movie to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to today’s song (s 😊 )

Hullo Atuldom

Today is the first birthday of Balu sir after he left us due to Covid related complications. The singer, actor, music director, dubbing artist, television presenter and film producer Sripathi Panditaradhyula Balasubrahmanyam a.k.a S.P. Balasubrahmanyam would have turned 75.

He was a huge bhakt of Mohd. Rafi. There are various video available in the public domain where he has stated this.
Last year our Nahmji had poured her heart into this post when the news of Balu sir’s passing broke on the news channels. And our Pradeepji had written his feelings in the comments to this post. Those were the feelings of practically all his fans.

But I don’t want to make this into a sad tribute as Balu Sir was a very lively person. He was a live-wire in his shows and performances on stage. He had a great hold on his art. And he was an automatic choice for giving playback when Southern superstar Kamal Haasan made his debut in Hindi films.

He played the hero’s friend (who is a singer) in the 1981 remake of the 1953 Telugu hit ‘Pakkinti Ammayi’. The remake was also called ‘Pakkinti Ammayi’. And no marks for guessing that these were the Telugu remakes of the Bengali original ‘Pasher Bari’ which was the inspiration for ‘Padosan’. ‘Pakkinti Ammayi’ was possibly Balu Sir’s acting debut. Before that he had done guest appearances in a movie or two. Hope that explains why I have listed him as an actor in the opening para. This was not his only acting assignment.

I have seen a Tamil movie in the late ’80s where he played a 40-year-old widower father to a teenage daughter. His was a natural and effortless acting. The highlight of the movie was a song in which he sings the antaras in a single breath. The director of the movie had asked Balu Sir if he could do the entire five minute song in a single breath and the singer was said to have replied that then he would have to find someone else to complete the movie as it was impossible to sing a song of that length in one shot. 🙂

There was one other movie, again in Tamil, where he played a good-natured cop and friendly father to Prabhu Deva. This was the movie with which audiences got to see Prabhu Deva the dancer for the first time and SPB as his father was simply too adorable. And he had acted in many Telugu and Tamil till 2018. He was seen in a few Kannada movies too and one Malayalam movie.

He was the default choice when it came to dubbing Tamil movies into Telugu (and the other way too) for Kamal Haasan till 2010. He had dubbed for Ben Kingsley when Gandhi was released in Telugu. He gave voice for seven characters (including the female character) in the Telugu version of Kamal Haasan’s Dasavathaaram out of the 10 characters that Kamal played.

His work in Hindi films began with “Ek Duje Ke Liye” as we all know and was the preferred voice for Salman Khan in some of his initial movies. And he has sung for many movies the last of which was ‘Chennai Express’ and the dubbed version of ‘Linga” in 2014.

He had hosted and judged the Telugu and Kannada equivalent of Indian Idol.

He was a recipient of Padma Shri (2001), Padma Bhushan (2011) and Padma Vibhushan (announced this year). He has won 6 National awards for Best Singer for songs in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi. He has records for recording 21 songs in a day in Kannada, as also 19 Tamil songs in a day. He is said to have done something similar in Hindi also.

Personally I am a huge fan of this personality and would have loved to post that Tamil song where he has sung the Antaras in a breath. But I am settling for the dubbed version of his song/dance with Prabhu Deva from the dubbed movie ‘Humse Hain Muqabala’. It’s Tamil original was “Kadhalan” (‘Loverboy’ that released in 1994). It had a cast of Nagma, Prabhu Deva, Girish Karnad, Raghuvaran and S P Balasubrahmanyam. It was directed by S. Shankar who has made movies that had a lot of special effects of which we can see samples in the songs of this movie too. A R Rehman was the music composer. The songs for the dubbed Hindi movie were written by P K Mishra. Today’s song is in the voices of Udit Narayan, SPB and his daughter SPB Pallavi. The same trio sang this in the Tamil movie too.

Today’s song is from the 1993 movie – ‘Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke’. Music for this movie was composed by Nadeem-Sharvan.

Shravan Rathod of this music duo team passed away recently on 22nd April’2021 (13.11.1954 – 22.04.2021), and as a tribute to him we remember this movie and its songs on the blog.

This movie had six songs composed by Nadeem-Shravan. Five songs have been posted on the blog earlier.

The name of music director duo Nadeem-Shravan will always be remembered for composing some of the scintillating music of the nineties for HFM.
Music of the movie ‘Aashiqui-1990/91’ had created a sensation among HFM fans. It was followed by movies like ‘Saajan-1991’, ‘Sadak-1991’, ‘Deewaanaa-1992’, ‘Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin-1992’, ‘Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke-1993’, ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’,‘Pardes-1997’, ‘Dil Ka Rishta-2003’ and others where this duo composed the music.

I am not a big fan of their music, but I cannot say that I do not their music totally. I like some of their compositions from the movies mentioned above.

However very soon music director Nadeem of the duo had to leave the industry and later made a comeback (giving music virtually, I think).

I had watched some of the movies mentioned above during my stay at Kota (Rajasthan).

‘Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke-1993’ is one such movie which I watched then. I remember I liked this movie very much and I watched it twice or thrice. I also liked the songs of this movie very much.

‘Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke-1993’ was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for ‘Tahir Hussain Enterprises’ & T.V. Films Pvt Ltd. It was produced by Tahir Hussain.

It had Amir Khan, Juhi Chawala, Dilip Tahil, Navneet Nishan, K.D. Chandran, Veeru Krishnan, Tiku Talsania, Mushtaq Khan, Javed Khan, Baby Ashrafa, Sharokh Bharucha, Master Kunal Khemu and others.

Story, screenplay, and dialogues for this movie were written by Robin Bhatt. (Amir Khan is also credited in writing screenplay with Robin Bhatt?).

Editing of this movie was done by Sanjay Sankla.

This movie had six songs written by Sameer and composed by Nadeem-Shravan.

Here are the details of songs of this movie and their date of posting on the blog;

Hullo Atuldom

“100 Days” (1991) was produced by Jay Mehta (son of producer Pranlal Mehta), directed by Partho Ghosh. This was a first for both the producer and director. It starred Madhuri Dixit- Moon Moon Sen- Jackie Shroff- Javed Jaffrey- Laxmikant Berde – Sabeeha (daughter of yesteryear actress Ameeta of “Tumsa Nahin Dekha” fame) and a few others. It was a remake of a Tamil hit, a crime thriller with a twist. Madhuri played Moon Moon’s sister and Javed Jaffrey’s college friend. Jackie played a rich man and Laxmikant Berde his secretary.

Usually I like to give the synopsis of the movie with the song but not today. It will take away the fun of seeing the movie, just in case any follower of the blog feels like having a dekho of the movie, anytime. I have seen it in both languages and have loved it. Specially the climax and the various emotions that run through the movie. There is high drama, comedy, romance and a few entertaining songs. Partho Ghosh had an able cinematographer in the (late) Arvind Laad and the frames in the suspense scenes are well composed.

The music for the movie was by Vijay Patil better known as Raam Laxman. I remember that our in-house encyclopedia has mentioned somewhere on the blog that Raam -Laxman were brothers who were signed up for the 1977 movie ‘Agent Vinod’. Unfortunately, Raam the older brother passed away before the release of ‘Agent Vinod’ in 1976. But Vijay Patil continued his journey in the industry as Raam -Laxman and was very successful in the ’90s. He later changed his name to Raamlaxman post ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’.

“100 Days” had songs written by Dilip K Tahir, Dev Kohli and Ravinder Rawal. the singers used were Lata Mangeshkar, Alka Yagnik, S.P. Balasubramaniam, and Amit Kumar. Choreographers were Suresh Bhatt, Chinni Prakash, and Partho Ghosh himself. There are two songs that were filmed on the dancing duo Javed Jaffery and Madhuri of which one was a stage song.

Today we are not having the stage song but the other one, which is essentially keeping with the spirit of today i.e. April Fool’s day or All Fools day. Since morning there have been messages which are supposedly giving insight into why this day is celebrated and the last line of that message says, and I quote: “He used to read all fake stories, like you are doing now. It’s great idea fooling you”. Normally people play harmless pranks on their friends and dear ones on this day and I read somewhere that this is, generally, only till noon.

This is what I found on wikipedia:- “Some writers suggest that April Fools’ originated because in the Middle Ages, New Year’s Day was celebrated on March 25 in most European towns, with a holiday that in some areas of France, specifically, ended on April 1, and those who celebrated New Year’s Eve on January 1 made fun of those who celebrated on other dates by the invention of April Fools’ Day. The use of January 1 as New Year’s Day became common in France only in the mid-16th century, and that date was not adopted officially until 1564, by the Edict of Roussillon”.

Before getting on to the song I would like to congratulate Atulji, Sudhirji and all his followers and contributors and commentors on the blog’s 16300th post. Even if the blog is moving as per the movement of the moon, we are reaching centuries at a constant pace.

Here is the song in Alka Yagnik and Amit Kumar’s voices Sabeeha is in Javed’s team in playing pranks on Madhuri though they are all close friends. This song is written by Ravinder Rawal.

I would like to point out a few things in this song:-
(1) Javed jaffery is holding a small potli in his hand at the start of the song, akin to what Gabbar Singh had in ‘Sholay’.
(2) Madhuri has a step where she is shown mixing tambaaku (tobacco) like Gabbar Singh (of course).
These are the reasons why the song has stayed with me in all these years.


Song-Gabbar Singh ye keh kar gaya (100 days)(1991) Singers-Amit Kumar, Alka Yagnik, Lyrics-Ravindra Raval, MD-Ram Laxman
Male courus
Female chorus

Blog Day :

4629 Post No. : 16280

Today’s song, like the previous song of “Jurm”(1990) discussed by me, is from a very recent movie ‘Criminal-1995’. The movie made its debut on the blog on 05.09.2008, with its beautiful romantic song ‘tu miley dil khile aur jeene ko kya chaahiye’. After that no song of this movie has been discussed so far.

Today after a gap of ‘4580’ days (breaking earlier record 😊 ‘4579’days) we are going to listen to the second song of this movie in the blog. Like others I was also not aware of the other songs of this movie except its song ‘tu miley dil khile aur jeene ko kya chaahiye’.

‘Criminal-1995’ was directed by Mahesh Bhatt (like ‘Jurm-1990’). And very rightly he first directed ‘Jurm-1990’(crime) and then moved on to ‘Criminal-1995’. (However, on our blog we first discussed ‘Criminal’ on 05.09.2008 and the ‘Jurm’ on 12.09.2008 😊 then in 2008).

Let us now move to the credits of this movie ‘Criminal-1995’.

As mentioned above it was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for ‘Vishesh Films’. It was produced by Mukesh Bhatt. It had Nagarjuna, Manish Koirala, Ramyah Krishnan, Laxmikant Berde, Johny Lever, Beena, Zaheer, Nasser, Sharad Babu with Gulshan Grover and Ajit. They were supported by Palav Vyas, Gurbachan, Mukesh Pandey, Vishweshara Rao, Jenny, Ravi Kiran, Dharmavupuru, Devdas Kankla and others. (Wikipedia mentions this as the last movie of actor Ajit.). Trishna made a guest appearance in this movie.

Screenplay of this movie was written by Sainath and dialogues were written by Jay Dixit. Editing of this movie was done by Sanjay Sankla.

It was passed by Censor Board on 21.07.1995 with restricted viewing certificate i.e., with ‘A’ certificate. This movie is said to be inspired by ‘The Fugitive-1993’ (an American movie) and was first made in Telugu in 1994 and later on in Hindi in 1995. Later it was dubbed and released in Tamil too.

This movie had eight songs (including ‘tu miley dil khile’ in three versions) written by Indeewar. Music for this movie was composed by M.M. Kreem.

Today we will listen to a song sung by Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik (as per ‘wiki’ and the YT link) and performed on screen by Nagarjuna and Manisha Koirala and 😊 Nagarjuna and Ramyah.

As mentioned above I mainly associate this movie with its song ‘tu miley dil khile aur jeene ko kya chaahiye’ only, so I was not aware about the other songs of this movie. And I have so far not watched this movie too.
While writing about today’s post, I checked other songs of this movie and I found today’s song somewhat familiar (maybe I had heard it during those days) when I was staying at Kota (Rajasthan).

let us now enjoy the music of ‘nineties’ and listen to this song …

I would request knowledgeable readers who have watched this movie to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Hullo Atuldom

I must admit at the outset that I have very limited understanding of some words that appear in today’s song. I know it is not possible to call the lyricist and ask for meanings. I know for sure that there are followers to this blog who will explain what “Jaanejaan” and “Janejana” actually mean. All along I have been thinking that both mean “beloved”, am I right? I hope it is not too late to learn, considering these words have been used in umpteen songs of Bollywood, since god knows when!!!

This song has been penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri who is known for meaningful songs from the ’40s. It has been tuned by Anu Malik and sung by Udit Narayan and Sadhana Sargam. Onscreen pair is Aamir Khan with Mamta Kulkarni. It is from the Ashutosh Gowarikar directed “Baazi” (1995). If I am not wrong this was his directorial debut. It was a cop story where Aamir Khan (the cop) is on the trail of people involved in a multi-crore rupee international scandal. The movie was slammed by critics as an ambitious mish-mash of many Hollywood movies like ‘Rambo’, ‘Die-hard’ etc. put together with ample doses of desi masala. But the masses seemed to have liked it as it was a moderate success at the box-office.

With this song we are wishing Aamir Khan on turning an year older.

Some sites on the internet say that Sadhana Sargam, the female playback of this song, had her birthday on 7th March; though the anniversary page of our blog gives the date as 14th March. Whatever be the date here is wishing this singer, with a sweet voice, all the best for a music-filled life. She has been around since she was barely 9 when she sang in the chorus for the song from “Trishna” with Kishore Kumar as the lead singer.

Her mother was a classical singer and music teacher who knew Anil Mohile, who was then arranger for Kalyanji-Anandji. He introduced baby Sadhana to the music composers and she was part of their troupe on many stage shows. She is a trained classical singer too as is evident in her control over sur and taal at any pitch. It is a small wonder that she was a much sought after singer through the ’90s. She has sung in many Indian languages and has nearly 150 Tamil songs to her credit. She has been nominated a few times at the Filmfare awards but they have eluded her so far. The National Award that she has won was for a Tamil song.

Let us wish Sadhana Sargam a very Happy Birthday with this post.


Song-Dheere dheere aap mere dil ke mehmaan ho gaye (Baazi)(1995) Singers-Udit Narayan, Sadhana Sargam, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Anu Malik

Lyrics

Blog Day :

Today, February 8th is the 5th Remembrance Day of the poet and lyricist, Nida Fazli (12/10/1938 – 08/02/2016) who left for the heavenly abode on this date 5 years back. 80 years ago, Ghazal singer, Jagjit Singh (08/02/1841 – 10/10/2011) was born on this date. More than a co-incidental connection between the two, they had a special connection through their collaborations. Nida Fazli was the master of expressing the romance, realities and the philosophy of life by way of ghazals and nazms while Jagjit Singh added soul to Nida Fazli’s words through his emotive voice.

There was another co-incidence about Nida Fazli and Jagjit Singh. Both came to Mumbai around the same time, 1964 and 1965 respectively, for pursuing their career. It was Jagjit Singh’s first LP album with his wife, Chitra Singh titled ‘Unforgettable’ (1976) which made him popular as a ghazal singer. Almost at the same point of time, Nida Fazli had also become one of the most sought-after poets in mushairas all over India.

Both Jagjit Singh and Nida Fazli used very simplistic approach in making their ghazals popular among the masses. Jagjit Singh rendered ghazals in his emotive voice with simple music using only 3-4 musical instruments. He mostly avoided the use of semi-classical genre such as thumri and dadra as was the convention at that time. Nida Fazli, by and large, avoided the use of Persianised Urdu words in his ghazal. He used the mix of simple words from Hindi and Urdu to make them understandable to the masses. He moved away from the convention of ghazal writing as an expression of the unrequited love and the piognant mood associated with such love. Instead, he expressed through his poems the human relationships, socio-economic and political situations as also on realities of life. His poem depicted the humanist approach.

I have selected a few of couplets from his ghazals, some of which have been sung by Jagjit Singh, as examples of his non-conventional way of putting his thoughts in simple words with deep meanings:

uss ke dushman hain bahut aadmī achchha hoga
wo bhi meri hi tarah shahar mein tanha hoga

safar mein dhoop to hogi jo chal sako to chalo
sabhi hain bheed mein tum bhi nikal sako to chalo

[Note: This entire ghazal was recited by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi during a Rajya Sabha debate on March 8, 2016 in the context of Government’s difficulties for the smooth passage of bills in Rajya Sabha]

dhoop mein niklo ghataaon mein nahaa kar dekho
zindagi kyaa hai kitaabon ko hataa kar dekho

duniya jise kahte hain jaadoo kaa khilauna hai
mil jaaye to mittī hai kho jaaye to sona hai

hukoomaton ko badalne to kuchh muhaal nahin
hukoomaten jo badalta hai wo samaaj bhī ho

Muhaal= difficult

kabhi kabhi youn bhi ham ne apne jee ko bahlaaya hai
jin baaton ko ḳhud nahin samjhe auron ko samjhaaya hai

ghar se masjid hai bahut dur chalo youn kar le
kisi rote huye bachche ko hansaaya jaaye

hoshwaalon ko khabar kya bekhudi kya cheez hai
ishq keejiye phir samjhiye zindagi kya cheez hai

Both Nida Fazli and Jagjit Singh got associated with Hindi film industry almost at the same time. Nida Fazli wrote his first lyrics for ‘Satranj Ke Mohre’ (1974). Jagjit Singh rendered his first full-pledge song as a playback singer in Hindi film, ‘Aavishkaar’ (1973) with his wife Chitra Singh.

Despite both Nida Fazli and Jagjit Singh being in Mumbai since 1965 and both having the inter-related careers, it took almost 25 years for both of them to collaborate for the first time when Nida Fazli wrote the lyrics for the film ‘Billoo Baadshah’ (1989) for which Jagjit Singh was the music director and also the playback singer for one song. It took another four years when their first non-film album, ‘Insight’ was released in 1993. for which all the songs were written by Nida Fazli. Thereafter their collaborations continued until Jagjit Singh’s death kept them apart.

Nida Fazli entered the Hindi film industry as a lyricist at a time when the quality of song writing had the initial sign of deterioration. In the post-1980’s scenarios, his filmy songs stand apart from most of the songs written during that period. And when he joined with Jagjit Singh, their collaborative as well as individual efforts took us back to the golden period of Hindi film music for few moments.

On the occasion of the 5th Rememberance Day of Nida Fazli and 80th birth anniversary of Jagjit Singh, I have selected one of those Hindi film songs where Jagjit Singh has sung the song written by Nida Fazli. The song is ‘meri aankhon ne chuna hai tujhko duniya dekh kar’ from ‘Tarkieb’ (2000) with Alka Yagnik joining Jagjit Singh in rendition. The song was set to music by Aadesh Srivastav.

‘Tarkieb’ (2000) failed miserably at the box office and faded into oblivion. But the song under discussion has ensured that the name of the film is not forgotten. Such is the power of Jagjit Singh-Nida Fazli combination.

Hullo Atuldom

“Sangeet” (1992) is a movie I have seen in parts on satellite television, don’t remember if I have seen the whole of it. Whatever I have seen has stayed with me and here is synopsis of the movie:

(1) Madhuri Dixit played a double role of mother-daughter. This, at a time when she was a glamour doll in other movies, Madhuri had a de-glamourised look as both mother and daughter. (2) Madhuri, as the daughter, was a blind girl staying in a under-construction building with Jackie Shroff as her neighbour. (3) Even Jackie had a role different from what he was playing in those days i.e. he was an out of work folk artist who has come to the big city in search of a appreciative audience. (4) Shafi Inamdaar played a wealthy man who marries the mother-Madhuri and Nitish Bharadwaj was her lover who she couldn’t marry. (5) Satish Shah played a music composer who has no qualms about hijacking other people’s tune and passing it off as his own. As per imbd.com it is the story of a blind orphan girl who has dreams of being a successful singer and reaches her goal with the help of another street singer and in the process discovers her parents too.

This was possibly the only Hindi movie which K. Viswanath directed, which was not a remake of his own Telugu hits. And in Madhuri he had a competent performer who did justice to both the roles, this was one of her underrated movies. Possibly the Hindi audience didn’t take too well to the story and the movie bombed. But both the lead actors had ‘hatke’ roles (an oft-repeated phrase among film makers). The melodies were the doing of Anand- Milind and Santosh Anand was the lyricist. Anuradha Paudwal, Suresh Wadkar, Pankaj Udhas, Jolly Mukherjee etc were the playback singers. Today’s song has Jolly Mukherjee giving his voice for Jackie Shroff.

Madhuri Dixit and Jackie have acted together in about 12 movies but this is one jodi that doesn’t come to the notice of Hindi film fans. They have been lovers, friends, bhabhi-devar, brother-sister (I am sure no one remembers that in “Tridev” they played siblings) etc. They have been good friends all through the years as is evident from the various times they have come together on TV and videos available on the internet.

Today we are having a song to wish Jaikishan Kakubhai Shroff a.k.a Jackie Shroff on his 64th birthday. He has been in the industry for close to 40 years beginning his journey as the villain’s henchman in a Dev Anand movie- he played Shakti Kapoor’s chamcha in Dev Anand’s “Swami Dada”. He is forever indebted to Subhash Ghai and has gone on record to say that he is ready to stand-in for the props in his movie if Subhash Ghai even mentions it. This is evident from the characters he has played in Ghai’s movies- father of Kareena Kapoor and his sisters, a guest appearance in “Saudagar”, a tiny role in “Trimurti”- I can go on quoting Shubash Ghai movies starring Jaggu Dada as he is fondly addressed in the industry. His journey into the filmworld was through the modelling world. He is the father of Tiger (Jai Hemant) Shroff the current heart-throb of the youngsters. Jackie Shroff is one of the actors of the ’80s whose movies I love to see the others being Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol, and Govinda.

Hullo Atuldom

We are on the last date of the first month of the 21st year of the 21st century.

January happens to be a cold month in the northern hemisphere of the earth. And India is in the middle of having winter which is characterized by fog, mist, cold winds etc depending on the Latitude that one resides on. When I used to be in Mumbai, the closest I came to experiencing ‘Sardi’, ‘Thandi’ etc was in the last week of December or first week of January. That too in the morning hours, till about 8 o’clock, then the thermometer would read round about 27 and 30 degrees Celsius during the day. I don’t remember seeing fog or mist there, but I had different climatic experiences once we shifted to Bangalore. I have seen all winter related features which last from November to January end with temperatures dropping to 10 degrees etc. Now in my current station, which is in the midst of lots of greenery and away from the hustle bustle of city-life, though the temperature did not touch 10 degrees on any day, we have been experiencing thick fog, cold winds, cold floors, etc.

All this talk of winter and cold climate, in addition to sharing pictures of fog with friends and family reminded me of a whole set of songs:- ‘jab chali thandi hawa’, ‘thandi hawaa yeh chaandni suhaani’, ‘thandi hawaa kaali ghaata aa hi gayi jhoom ke’, ‘thandi hawaayen lehraake aayen’, ‘thandi thandi hawaa mein dil lalchaaye’, ‘mujhko thand lag rahi hain’ etc etc.

The songs that I have mentioned are all popular numbers from their times. But the movies of the new century are no different. They also have songs where the different characters are reacting to cold climates with lots of guts- it takes a lot of guts to shoot these songs in cold climates, with snow etc for added effect and in costumes that are of the thinnest fabric possible like chiffon, lace etc. (Possibly the only climate appropriate dressing was Saira Banu in ‘Junglee’ and some other heroines of the ’60s and Hema Malini in a few movies of the ’70s, recently I re-saw “Dost”.) For further enhancement of the scene we may even see short dresses with long boots. My sympathies with all the female actors who have done those songs and scenes. And what do the male actors wear in such songs- long coats, mufflers, gloves etc.

In the build up to this post I recalled a 23 year old song. This song was shot in the cold climes of Australia. I had mentioned this movie to fellow-atulites, on our WhatsApp group last week, when the India- Australia cricket series was on. The uniqueness about this song is the heroine is dressed in climate appropriate clothes and we have the hero trying to be MANLY and showing of his biceps etc in half-jacket and jeans. I also read the heroine reminiscing about how the actor was shivering during the shoot.

I am talking of Preity Zinta and Bobby Deol. The movie was “Soldier” which was released in 1998. It was produced by Ramesh Taurani of Tips Records and directed by the director-duo: brothers Abbas-Mustan. It had Anu Malik as music director and Sameer was the lyricist. It was the third highest grossing album of 1998 behind “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” and “Dil Se”.

This was Preity Zinta’s debut movie though she had signed “Kya Kehna” before this. “Dil Se” and “Soldier” have billed Preity Zinta as debutant; Preity had a supporting role in “Dil Se”. She was born in Shimla on 31st January. So today is her Birthday. Last I had written a post for her birthday was when she turned 40.

She has taken a sabbatical from acting a few times since 2009 for the sake of her IPL team. She has married her long-time American partner in 2016. In her career of almost 25 years, she has acted with all the top actors of the ’90s and later years. She has also acted in a movie with Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor where her character was negative and Schizophrenic. She was praised for her portrayal of the character. She also appeared alongside The Big B in an English language film that was directed by Rituparno Ghosh “The Last Lear” in 2007, this was a film-inside-a-film drama. She has also played the traditional glamorous actress in movies. She has shared screen space with top actresses like Madhuri Dixit, Rani Mukherjee etc too.

Today’s song is to wish Bobby Deol too, even if belatedly for his birthday which was on 27th, he turned 52. Born as Vijay Singh Deol into the film industry as the youngest child of Dharmendra and Prakash Kaur. He first faced the camera when he was 5 or 6 year old as the baby Dharam in “Dharam Veer” (1977). His first adult role was in “Barsaat” (1995) where another star-child Twinkle Khanna made her debut. He has one more “Barsaat” (2005) in the list of his films. He has appeared in a few mutli-starrers and also shared screen space with his father and brother in a few of their home productions. The “Yamla Pagla Deewana” series was good to see due to the Deols even if the story was lame, tame or weak. It is always entertaining to see the Deols.

In their well being and prosperity alone, lies my happiness
Jai Hind!.”

This is the national pledge which is commonly found printed in the opening pages of the school text books and calendars. It is recited in the morning assembly of most Indian schools. It is part of the Indian Constitution. It is commonly recited by Indians in unison at public events, Independence day, Republic day etc. At least it used be so when I was a student, don’t know if this is still in practice. We all know who wrote the National Anthem or the National song but the author of the National Pledge is largely unknown. His name is P.V. Subba Rao who was a Telugu author and bureaucrat who composed the pledge when he was serving as District Treasury Officer in Vishakapatnam district in 1962/63. It was subsequently translated into other languages. Apparently Subba Rao himself was unaware of the Pledge having been adopted as National Pledge till he heard his grand daughter reading it from a textbook.

Hope we all get back to taking the pledge today on our 71st Republic day.
“Diljale” (1996) had music by Anu Malik and Javed Akhtar was the lyricist. It was produced by Paramjeet Baweja and directed by Harry Baweja; Karan Razdan (of the popular Doordarshan serial “Rajani” fame) was its story-screenplay-dialogue writer. It had a cast headed by Sonali Bendre- Ajay Devgan- Madhoo- Parmeet Sethi and Amrish Puri, Shakti Kapoor, Himani Shivpuri, Farida Jalal, Akash Khurana, Master Raju (as Raju Shrivastav), Rakesh Bedi, Tinnu Anand, Aroon Bakshi, Gulshan Grover etc in the supporting cast.

It was the story of Shyam (Ajay Devgan) who is the son of a patriotic village leader (Akash Khurana) who is in love with Radhika (Sonali Bendre) daughter of the local politician and an erstwhile Rajasaheb. The Raja cannot digest the love between the college students because of economic and class differences. He also cannot tolerate the village leader who is an obstacle in his aim to usurp the land of the villagers. The Raja, with the help of the local corrupt cop Gulshan Grover manages to frame the village leader and brand Shyam a terrorist when the latter goes to question the Raja’s actions. This causes a rift between the lovers.

Shyam manages to escape and finds refuge with Dara (Amrish Puri) and his gang who are basically pawns at the hand of India’s enemies. Shyam as Shaka tries to settle scores with Rajasaheb, and in process a few of his associates are captured by the army. Dara and his gang then hijack a bus of Vaishnodevi pilgrims so that they can pressurize the army into releasing their gang members. Radhika and her aunt are also part of the hostages. This provides the ex-lovers opportunity to clarify misunderstandings. The movie then proceeds to the climax with Shaka/ Shyam managing to avenge his father’s humiliation etc. He also manages to bring a change in the thinking of Dara and his gang who surrender to the army when they see that Shaka steps on a landmine that was meant to blow them up. All-in-all it was an entertaining movie but IMHO the solution to the terrorist problem, as shown in the movie, was rather lame.

“Diljale” had Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Poornima, Kumar Sanu, Udit Narayan and Master Aditya Narayan who has now grown into an adult and is a singer, composer and television host now. We have one song already in the blog out of the eight or nine songs that the movie had.

Today’s song is a two-version song. In the first version we have Akash Khurana lip-syncing to Kumar Sanu and tutoring his son about the motherland. The son lip-syncs to Aditya Narayan. This version has all the trappings of a National Day song with flag unfurling, releasing doves and Hindu Muslim bhaichara or unity as one may choose to view it. The second version starts as an antakshari played by the captives of Dara and gang and culminates as the patriotic song sung by Radhika in Kavita Krishnamurthy’s voice.

Incidentally 25th January happened to be Kavita Krishnamurthy’s 63rd birthday. She was born in Delhi as Sharada Krishnamurthy. She is married to Dr. L. Subramaniam a renowned composer, violinist, and conductor who is trained in Carnatic classical music as well as Western Classical music. Kavita got an opportunity to sing under the auspices of Hemant Kumar for a Bengali film in 1971 when she was still in college and Lata Mangeshkar was her co-singer. Hemantda’s daughter was instrumental in reintroducing Kavita to Hemantda and he began using her for his live performances. Manna Dey spotted her in one of these shows and then she sang a few advertisement jingles. Until 1985, when “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” happened, Kavita was a dubbing artist for many composers. “tumse milkar, na jaane kyun” and “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” was the turning point of her career. Here is wishing Kavita Krishnamurthy a life filled with happiness and music and good health.

Happy Republic Day once again.
