Hullo Atuldom

“Darmiyaan” (1997) was a movie set in the Bombay (before being rechristened Mumbai) of 1946. It starred Kiron Kher, Tabu, (established actors of that time) with Rita Ganguly (renowned Hindustani vocalist), Rupal Patel, Hilla Sethna, Sayaji Shinde, Shahbaz Khan playing supporting roles. Arif Zakaria made his debut in this movie in the difficult character of a eunuch.

Kiron Kher plays a dancer or tawaif who is also a beautiful starlet who becomes very successful in the movies. She is initially in denial that she has sired a eunuch. She attains fame, has an affair with one of her co actors who later ditches her for a younger actress etc. She is disappointed / disillusioned and becomes addicted to all vices possible to the point of losing everything she possesses including her family (which deserts her), wealth home etc. Her child, who has grown up to become Arif Zakaria, tries his best to keep her afloat in her professional and personal life. He has his own identity problems to solve. Towards the end it is shown that Arif (Immi is the name of the character) finds an abandoned child, tries to look after it with his mother’s help but societal attitude towards a transgender force him to give the child away to Tabu and he ends his and his mother’s life as he feels that is the only solution to their problems.

There was another movie “Tamanna” which released in 1998 which was produced by Pooja Bhatt and directed by Mahesh Bhatt. The story of that movie seems to take off from where Kalpana Lajmi’s Immi gives up on his adopted baby. This is the next movie on my to-be-seen list. I don’t remember why I didn’t see these movies at the time of their release, but I am sure I would not have been able to find company or relish it back then. And I am glad that these movies are there on YouTube. Now I don’t know whose life story inspired Kalpana Lajmi to make this movie. I sat through the movie in the course of writing this post and found it fairly engrossing. (A sheer coincidence that there is Supreme Court verdict today (on 7th September, 2018) that says history owes transgenders an apology).

Kalpana Lajmi is the daughter of painter Lalita Lajmi and niece of yesteryear actor / filmmaker Guru Dutt. She began her career assisting Shyam Benegal who also happened to be her uncle. She has been making movies since 1978 starting with short films and graduating to films like ‘Ek Pal’ with Naseerudin Shah and Shabana Azmi in the lead, ‘Rudaali’ with Dimple Kapadia and Raj Babbar etc., her last directed film being ‘Chingaari’ with Sushmita Sen and Mithun Chakravarty in the lead roles.

Dr. Bhupen Hazarika – born on 8th September 1926 in Assam- is the music director of this movie. He has sung a song and all the background score too, specially in the scenes that show the anguish of the central characters, his baritone voice adds to the poignancy of the scenes. Probably the first time I became aware of Bhupen Hazarika, the singer / music composer was when I heard the songs of ‘Rudaali’ and was floored by the sound of “Dil Hoom Hoom Kare” but a National award and Sahitya Academy award winner doesn’t need a certificate from a layperson like me. His Padma awards Dadasaheb Phalke awards are testimony to his greatness.

The song with this post is written by Jaaved Akhtar and sung by Asha Bhonsle. Initially I began to see the movie to see if any portion of the song is present in any other part as the video available is very short. In fact, most of the songs end abruptly in the movie except the Bhupen Hazarika song which is there in 3 parts through the movie.

And no, I have not forgotten that 8th September is also my all-time favourite singer’s birthday too. How can I forget. I adore her so much. And I am sure every one would have guessed why I chose an Asha Bhonsle song to go with this post 🙂 . And we have so much information all around about Asha Bhonsle that I am controlling myself from writing anything here.

Remembering Dr. Bhupen Hazarika (a doctorate on his thesis “Proposals for Preparing India’s Basic Education to use Audio-Visual Techniques in Adult Education”) on his birth anniversary – he would have been 92 and wishing Asha Bhonsle too on her birthday.

Blog Day : 3683 Post No. : 14585

18th August is the birthday of another veteran of Bollywood. She has been around from the age of 8 beginning as a child star in ‘Gunga Jumna’ (1961). She has been awarded the filmfare best supporting actress award twice and also the Life Time Achievement award. I am here talking of Aruna Irani. She turns 64 today.

Here is a song on the occasion which presents her in a different style from her usual dancing self. Also a thing to be noted is that in this clip, they have used visuals from black and white movies especially from the days when Madhubala and Dilip Kumar were a hit pair. Plus another thing that struck me was the chemistry between the two leading actresses – Shabana Azmi and Aruna Irani (playing the elder sister). The story line is somewhat based on the life of the two famous singing sisters in the industry – Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle.

‘Saaz’ was produced and directed by Sai Paranjpe in 1998.  Jaaved Akhtar is the lyricist. This particular song is Zakir Hussain’s composition. It is sung by Devaki Pandit.

Happy birthday to Aruna Irani.

Song – Phir Bhor Bhayee Jaaga Madhuban (Saaz) (1998) Singer – Devaki Pandit, Lyrics – Javed Akhtar, MD – Zakir Hussain

Lyrics

mmmmmmm

aaa aaa aaaaaa
aaaaaaa aaaaaaa

phir bhor bhayi jaaga madhuban
phir bhor bhayi jaaga madhuban
phir mehki hawa
phir behki hawa
phir mehki hawa
phir behki hawa
phoolon se mili phir koi kiran
aaa aaaa aaaa
phir bhor bhayi jaga madhuban
phir bhor bhayi

phir mausam ras chhalkaane laga
phir mausam ras chhalkaane laga
phir kaliyon mein rang aane laga 
phir koi nadi balkhaane lagi
phir koyal mann me gaane lagi 
phir goonja mere mann ka aangan
aaa aaaa aaaa
phir bhor bhayi

phir geet hawa mein ghulne lage
phir bol suron mein dhulne lage
phir raagini machli saanson mein
phir shehad ghula aawazon mein
phir jhoom utha yeh neel gagan
aaa aaaa aaaa
phir bhor bhayi jaga madhuban
phir bhor bhayi

फिर कोयल मन में गाने लगी
फिर गूँजा मेरे मन का आँगन
आss आss आsssss
फिर भोर भई

फिर गीत हवा में घुलने लगे
फिर बोल सुरों में धुलने लगे
फिर रागिनी मचली साँसों में
फिर शहद घुला आवाज़ों में
फिर झू उठा ये नील गगन
आss आss आsssss
फिर भोर भई जागा मधुबन

He was born John Prakash Rao Janumala. He spent his childhood years in Mumbai’s Dharaavi and studied only upto class VII. Then he had to do odd jobs to overcome financial problems in the family. He was a good mimic. He started to perform in stage shows such as Tabassum Hit Parade and Kalyanji-Anandji Nite etc. He was noticed by Sunil Dutt at one of the stage shows and he got a chance in “Dard Ka Rishta” in 1981. His next big movie was Gul Anand’s – Pankaj Parashar directed movie “Jalwa”. Since then he has done around 350-400 movies.

Ok we adore him as Johnny Lever.

He is one from the current crop of comedians who were (I am sure) inspired by the likes of Mehmood and Johnny Walker. Can anyone forget his teaming up with Ashok Saraf in Rakesh Roshan’s ‘Karan Arjun’ or for that matter many Rakesh Roshan directed and produced movies be it ‘Kishen Kanhaiya’, ‘Koyla’, ‘Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’, ‘Koi Mil Gaya’. He was also part of any David Dhawan movies where his character was as important as the hero’s. He is a performer whose eyes all speak. And he is a decent dancer considering he has teamed up with Govinda, Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan etc. for many song and dance sequences. I just realized that he is 60 already and today (14th August) he will be 61. God!!!

Today’s song is from the 1997 Rakesh Roshan directed Shahrukh Khan Movie “Koyla”. The song is something like “Mere Saamne Waali Khidki Mein. . .” from ‘Padosan’ (1968) in the sense that on screen SRK is lip synching to Johny Lever’s singing. This is because SRK plays a mute character in the movie.

The song is in the voice of Udit Narayan, music direction is Rajesh Roshan and written by Indeevar. The song happens at the wedding reception of Raja, the tyrant zamindar role played by Amrish Puri, who has conned Madhuri into marrying him after showing the pic of the mute Shahrukh Khan (who is unaware of the con). Towards the end of the song SRK discovers the bride (who is supposed to be at the reception) sitting and crying in the bedroom with Deepshika filling in for her next to Amrish Puri.

 

Song – Ghunghate Mein Chanda Hai (Koyla) (1997) Singer – Udit Narayan, Lyrics – Indiwar, MD – Rajesh Roshan
Chorus

Lyrics

ghunghte mein chanda hai
phir bhi hai phaila

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 5
———————————————————————

Our blog will be completing a decade online on 19th July, 2018, and I think this is a great great achievement of Atul ji – our leader – who over all these years has keep it going with his tireless efforts and dedication towards the blog in spite of having his own personal priorities including his full-time job.

I got an opportunity to get in contact with this blog since (my first comment on 15.09.2009 – Kashti Ka Khaamosh Safar Hai …) and after that it took me few years to become a part of the ASAD team on 05.09.2012 when my first contribution – Pyaar Ka Badlaa Mujhe –  was posted on the blog. So, after a couple of months it will mark my six years on this blog as a contributor and team member of this family.

As I have said in one of my earlier articles here that when I joined this blog, my main objective was the songs which were in my memory since childhood and these were the songs which are very nostalgic for me and those which brings back wonderful memories for me – Tere Mere Yaaraane ho o. Revisiting those songs is like reviving again the old days – the days I was growing – the childhood and the ‘magic of cinema’.

Over these years since 2012, after the initial phase of sharing ‘lot of songs’ from the seventies, I have also shared some of my anecdotes and written about movies which I may not have watched but their songs are part of my memories. After coming into the contact with this blog I also got to learn and became aware of many songs of yesteryears, got to know about the great personalities associated with these songs, and about the vast treasure trove that HFM is.

In few of my earlier posts I have already written about ‘what this blog is for me (Hum Se Roothhe Hi Bhale Saara Zamaana) and how over all these years it has become an essential part of my life.  Hence, I will not repeat all those feelings here, and will come to the song in today’s post.

For this 10th anniversary celebrations of the blog, my theme is ‘nostalgia’. What I want to express in today’s post is that other than the ‘nostalgia’ of songs and movies that I share on this blog, now this blog itself has become a ‘nostalgic’ part of my daily routine. As I browse it daily it brings back memories of initial years a ‘contributor’ and the communications that I have been doing all these years with the team of contributors. And the most beautiful thing of all to happen was meeting some of our team members in person – the gang outs 🙂 – Is Mulaqaat Bas Mazaa Lijiye.

This is the most beautiful part of ‘my’ life and I think I can write it – ‘our life’. Because we, ‘strangers’ to each other, have now become as one ‘soul’ and ‘one life’ because of this blog only. The joy of meeting each other in the ‘gang outs’ cannot be described in words here. It is an everlasting feeling and after every meeting we long to meet next time with many new things to share.

Personally, I feel myself very fortunate to be a part of this blog and to have met some wonderful peoples- our seniors and fellow team members – in my lifetime and it’s like ‘jeevan dhanya ho gaya’, so what more one wants because ‘main to kuchh bhi nahin tha, is blog ne mujhe bahot kuchh bana diya’ 🙂 . In the near future I hope to meet other members whom I have not yet met in person 🙂 . This ‘Suhaana Safar’ will be continuing on and on. . .

In India, this month of July brings the monsoon and nowadays it’s raining in almost all the parts of the country. The monsoon generally takes over and covers the whole country in this month. For me, it is a regular here since months and even in this winter season here in Kenya now, we have regular rains. That is why when I think about the birthday of this blog, it was in July in 2008. Every year on the anniversary of this blog, Atul ji must be remembering those days when he was thinking of launching this blog or putting his thoughts together which later on became a ‘full online regular blog’ 😊

aise hi kuchh din rahe honge wo bhi
jab kaale kaale baadal mandlaa rahe honge
aur idhar geeton ki varsha barasne ki tayyari ho rahi thi. . .

With these thoughts in mind let us enjoy this lovely song and fall in love with HFM yet once again – the songs that brings back memories and the ‘nostalgia’ everybody has been associated with in one’s life. Because hereafter when these celebrations are over the memories of this wonderful week will become a part of our ‘nostalgia’ forever and will be remembered every year. And if the virtual gang out happens, it will also leave behind memories to cherish forever.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful composition from Rajesh Roshan penned by Qateel Shifai, and which has the sweet and melodious voices of Sadhna Sargaam and Suresh Wadkar. The film is ‘Anjaane’. As per information available online, this film was launched in 1993, and its music was released in 1995. However, production delays and other issues caused the film to be released only in 2000. I have not seen this film and I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

Once again thanking Atul ji and all other members of this blog and wishing all the best in the future, let us enjoy this song.

Blog Day : 3630 Post No. : 14455

Yesterday, 25th June was the birth anniversary of actor Raghuveer Yadav and we wish him a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead. (In the anniversary list on our blog his birth date is mentioned as Jan 1st, however almost all of the internet sites that I came across during search for his biography have mentioned 25th June’1957 as his date of birth. So now I only have doubt about the year of his birth if it is correct, the reason is mentioned in the write up below.

Many of us movie Hindi Movie lovers are aware of Raghuveer Yadav and his multifaceted talent. I cannot exactly tell when my first interaction was watching his perform was but going by the chronology I think it was his TV serial ‘Mungerilal Ke Haseen Sapne’ which left an indelible mark on my mind. Later on, so far, I think I had watched very few of his movies, not even the newer ones too.

But still Raghuveer Yadav is one such name that brings many things to mind – unmatchable talent, his rustic-but so natural-and innocent acting which gets him immersed into the character and the one watching it gets involved so much so that when he came out of the movie hall he came with this character (which ever he is playing) all around oneself and it take time before one comes to normal after that. His acting does not only shake your mind and leave its imprints but leaves its magic on your ‘soul’ that is how I would like to put it in my words.

A story of simplicity, struggle, and an extra-ordinary achievement coming from an ordinary background. A living saga of dedication, hard work and immense talent. So, I think, to know why Raghuveer Yadav is what he is today, one must learn about his formative years mainly, which evolve him into being a ‘living legend’ today. I am approaching this post in a different manner without mentioning the name of the movies he has acted till now. Because as he himself has mentioned that his best is yet to come and whatever he has done till now, he feels, could have been done much better than that. As an ‘actor’ he thinks, he cannot achieve what he wants to achieve in this ‘single life’ and needs ‘one (or may be more)’ lives to achieve that. The journey is on. . .

Raghuveer Yadav was born on in Jabalpur District of Madhya Pradesh on 25th June, 1957. His father was a farmer in a small village near Jabalpur.  Among five siblings – three sisters and two brothers – he was the second after his elder sister. Since his childhood he was fond of singing even though none from his family was even remotely related with singing. Given the background of living around farms and learning in a small village school where the classes were conducted below a tree and sitting on the wooden planks, it was natural for him to get attracted towards the nature and maybe he developed that habit of observing the happenings around since those days. He used to take his cattle or grazing around and travelling bullock-carts.

As he was not interested much in studies he somehow completed his education till Higher Secondary (as told by himself in his interview in ‘Guftagoo’ on Rajya Sabha TV). When he was asked to learn Science in Higher Secondary, in apprehension of failing in exams he planned to run away from home and ‘fortunately’ so there was a person in his village who used to run-away from home at regular intervals and had become a ‘professional bhagouda’. Raghuveer run away with him and they reach at the person’s Uncle. After the money stolen from (his father’s pocket) was finished Raghuveer’s friend returned back to his village. However Raghuveer decided to stay back and joined a ‘Parsi theatre group’ in those years and started singing there. In Parsi theatre the ability to sing was a very necessary qualification to get any work there.

Well in those years (1967 as per him i.e. why I think his year of birth should be earlier than 1957, if we consider he ran away from home when he was doing higher secondary.). He got the job of singing in between the intervals during the change of ‘scenes’. He used to get Rs.2.50 per day or even Rs.1.00/1.50 sometimes then and thus had to be without food many times. When the survival became difficult and the singing opportunities were getting reduced he has to take on ‘acting’ at the behest of the owner of the group. There he also started learning, writing and speaking ‘Urdu’.

After working with this ‘play group’ for almost six years and travelling through various places for doing plays, Raghuveer finally come to Lucknow and started doing ‘Puppet’ shows. And after that he landed in Delhi and joined the National School of Drama. And, from here under the baton of Ibrahim Alkazi he learned and learned a lot about theatre, set designing, craft, music and singing, and his journey till reaching here had already given him lot of insights on ‘human life’ too.

He was a part of the NSD Repertory when he got his first opportunity to work in movies and thus his entry in movies happened with ‘Massey Saheb-1985’, which fetch him two International awards too. He was awarded the Silver Peacock for best acting at the 11th International Film Festival of India in 1987.

He always wanted to be a singer and has a passion for music. He plays many instruments and even builds some on his own. Singing and Music has remained his strong passion and that is why in trying and testing times or in depression he always resorted to music which gives him peace and satisfaction. During his interviews he has mentioned that the music during the ‘sixties’ was his favourite, however so far he didn’t mention any of the Bollywood songs which he liked most. It will be interesting to know which songs his favourite during those years have been and which motivated him if any. Or may be since he was mainly attracted towards theatre, the poetry-based songs and/or folk songs remained his main attraction. He also fondly remembers his days of theatre in ‘Delhi’ and all his friends there whom he missed a lot. (I would request readers to watch and listen to his singing of ‘Delhi’ and ‘Majnu’ in his interviews which is very touching).

Given the hardships he faced in life and reaching the heights where he is today cannot be summed up in one article here. It required a detailed biography which I am sure will be interesting and inspirational for the many who wants to achieve a ‘purpose’ in life.

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Aasmaan Se Giraa’ (1991). This film is directed by Pankaj Parashar for ‘Children’s Film Society of India’. Pankaj Parashar also wrote the story and screenplay of this movie. Neena Bhatnagar was the additional screenplay writer of this movie. It had Raghuveer Yadav, Abhishek, Kalpana Iyer, Rakesh Shrivastava, Sunil Ranade, Navtej Hundal, Ranjit Shah, Kurush Deboo, DK Mathur, DN Shaily and Sanjeev Shah. Sheeba, Tisca Arora, Rajesh Puri, Anupam Kher, Sridevi, Anil Kapoor and Amjad Khan make ‘guest appearances’ in this movie. Commentary in the movie was done by Shaban Azmi. Anubhav Sinha was the Chief Assistant Director of this movie, and V Ramesh Babu was the Chief Assistant Editor. Editing for this movie was done by Afaque Husain.  Choreography of this movie was done by Vijay Oscar, Bhupendra Singh, Pankaj Parashar. Bijon Das Gupta was the Art Director of this movie. Raghuveer Yadav, Shailendra Singh, Suresh Wadkar, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Hema and Abhishek gave their voices to the songs in this movie. Kamlesh Pandey was the lyricist for this movie and he also wrote the dialogues for this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Louis Banks.

It was passed by the Censor Board on 30.08.1991 (but seems to be released in theatres on 04.09.1992 as most of the internet sources mentioned it). The following synopsis about this movie and brief about the Director of this movie Pankaj Parashar has been taken as given with the YouTube link (Ultra Kids Zone, posted on 06.08.2016) of this movie;

A young prince is trained for a time when he will grow up to become king. The lonely boy is frustrated at being kept secluded while being taught the art of statesmanship by great scholars. One day he finds a strange little man from another planet. He names his new friend Trishanku and the two exchange views about their own worlds. Trishankhu is homesick and wishes to return back to his planet. The two-escape trying to find ways for Trishankhu to go back. On their journey they develop a deep bonding and it is hard for Trishankhu to let go.

This heartwarming film by popular TV and film director Pankaj Parashar stars a galaxy of Bollywood stars in guest appearances including Sridevi, Amjad Khan, Anil Kapoor and Anupam Kher.

Pankaj Parashar A reputed director of films and TV series. He is an alumnus of FTII, Pune. His diploma film ‘Malfunction’ for the institute won him a Filmfare Award for Best Documentary. Since then he has held the directorial chair for many reputed films most notable being ‘Jalwa’ (1987) and ‘Chaal Baaz’ (1989) with the latter winning him another Filmfare award. He also made the immensely popular TV serial ‘Karamchand’, India’s first detective series in 1985. Currently Pankaj divides his time making ad films and working on his next feature film

I remember having watched this movie on ‘Doordarshan’ may be in 1994-95, and since then I could not forget it. I was searching for its songs since many years now and particularly I liked the other song of this movie very much and I and my cousins used to discuss about it and sing it whenever we used to get together. The movie also has some beautiful locations of Rajasthan and this could be the other factor why it is close to my heart as I was in Rajasthan then from 1989-1996 🙂 though I watched the movie on TV during visit to hometown in Maharashtra.

Let us now enjoy the today’s wonderful-philosophical song, sung by Raghuveer Yadav and Master Abhishek, which I sincerely hope you too will like and enjoy.

Song – Ghar Jaana Hai (Aasmaan Se Gira) (1991) Singer – Raghuveer Yadav, Master Abhishek, Lyrics – Kamlesh Pandey, MD – Louis Banks

Lyrics

kitni gol hai duniya teri
reh gaya main chakraake
aasmaan se giraa magar
atkaa khajoor mein aake ae
mujhe ghar jaana hai ae
ghar jaana hai ae ae
ghar jaana hai ae

hamaara itihaas mahaan hai
mahaa puroshon ki khaan hai
itihaas?
ye kya hota hai
ek tha sikandar
aadmi tha ya bandar
ha ha ha
yunaan ka raja tha
sikandar mahaan
sapna tha uska
loote saara jahaan
desh pardesh
uske jhande taley aate gaye
raja maharaja sabhi sar jhukaate gaye
mere bhaai
ye jhanda kya hota hai
dande ke upar ek kapda hota hai
jo haar jaata hai
to ban jaata hai ghulam
jeetnewaale ke jhande ko
karna padta hai salaam

samjhaa aa

sab ka alag alag jhanda hai
jhande ke andar danda hai
jisko guroor aata hain
apna danda dikhlaata hai
jhande se jhanda ladta hai
aadmi kat’ta marta hai
har ek desh jhande se lais
jiska danda usi ki bhains
isiliye to dete naara
jhanda ooncha rahe hamaara
jhanda ooncha rahe hamaara

sikandar ne lekin
saari duniya ko jeeta
achchha hota
agar wo ghar baith kar chaai peeta
chai peenewaale
itihaas nahin banaate

yahi agar itihaas hai to
kya karna isey dohraake
aasmaan se giraa magar
atkaa khajoor mein aake ae
mujhe ghar jaana hai
ghar jaana hai ae ae
ghar jaana hai

hamaari sanskriti hai bahut puraani
hamaare yahaan huye hai
bade bade gyaani
mere bhaai
kya hota hai gyaan
kya hota hai gyaani
gyaani wo jisne jaani
aatma kya hai

ye sab moti moti kitaabon mein likha hai

aatma kya hai
aatma amar hai
chaurasi lakh yoniyon ka safar hai
na koyi jeeta hai
na marta hai
aatma bas nayaa roop dharta hai

koyi jeeta na koyi marta hai
koyi farq nahin padta hai

phir to koyi kisi ko maare
begunaah saare hatyaare
naa koyi khooni naa koi laash
mujrim judge sab ek hi saath

janam janam ka pheraa hai
chidiya rain basera hai

janam janam ke phere mein
main rah gaya chakkar kha ke
aasmaan se giraa magar
atkaa khajoor mein aake ae
mujhe ghar jaana hai
ghar jaana hai ae ae
ghar jaana hai

कितनी गोल है दुनिया तेरी
रह गया मैं चकराके
आसमान से गिरा मगर
अटका खजूर में आके ए
मुझे घर जाना है ए
घर जाना है ए ए
घर जाना है ए

हमारा इतिहास महान है
महा पुरूषों कि खान है
इतिहास?
ये क्या होता है

एक था सिकंदर
आदमी था या बन्दर
ह ह ह
यूनान का राजा था
सिकंदर महान
सपना था उसका
लुटे सारा जहां
देश परदेश
उसके झंडे तले आते गए
राजा महाराजा सभी सर झुकाते गए
मेरे भाई
ये झंडा क्या होता है
डंडे के ऊपर एक कपडा होता है
जो हार जाता है
तो बन जाता है गुलाम
जीतनेवाले के झंडे को
करना पड़ता है सलाम
समझा ॰ ॰ ॰

सब का अलग अलग झंडा है
झंडे के अन्दर डंडा है
जिसको गुरूर आता हैं
अपन डंडा दिखलाता है
झंडे से झंडा लड़ता है
आदमी कटता मरता है
हर एक देश झंडे से लैस
जिसका डंडा उसी कि भैंस
इसीलिए तो देते नारा
झंडा ऊँचा रहे हमारा
झंडा ऊँचा रहे हमारा

सिकंदर ने लेकिन
सारी दुनिया को जीता
अच्छा होता
अगर वो घर बैठ कर चाय पीता
चाय पीनेवाले
इतिहास नहीं बनाते

यही अगर इतिहास है तो
क्या करना इसे दोहराके
आसमान से गिरा मगर
अटका खजूर में आके ए
मुझे घर जाना है ए
घर जाना है ए ए
घर जाना है ए

हमारी संस्कृति बहुत पुरानी है
हमारे यहाँ हुए है
बड़े बड़े ग्यानी
मेरे भाई
क्या होता है ज्ञान
क्या होता है ग्यानी
ग्यानी वो जिसने जानी
आत्मा क्या है
परमात्मा क्या है
ये सब मोटी मोटी किताबों में लिखा है
क्या लिखा है
आत्मा क्या है
आत्मा अमर है
चौरासी लाख योनियों का सफ़र है
ना कोई जीता है
ना कोई मरता है
आत्मा बस नया रूप धरता है
कोई जीता न कोई मरता है
कोई फर्क नहीं पड़ता है

फिर तो कोई किसी को मारे
बेगुनाह सारे हत्यारे
ना कोई खुनी ना कोई लाश
मुजरिम जज सब ही साथ

जनम जनम का फेरा है
चिड़िया रेन बसेरा है

जनम जनम के फेरे में
मैं रह गया चक्कर खा के

आसमान से गिरा मगर
अटका खजूर में आके ए
मुझे घर जाना है ए
घर जाना है ए ए
घर जाना है ए

“Thevar Magan” was a 1992 Tamil movie produced by Kamal Hassan and directed by Bharathan with music by Ilaiyaraja and a cast of Sivaji Ganesan, Kamal Hassan, Revathi, Gouthami and Nassar. The story in one line is thus- a reluctant educated son ascending a throne full of thorns. This movie was remade in Hindi in 1997 by Mushir-Riaz produtions with Priyadarshan as the director. Here the cast was headed by Anil Kapoor and Amrish Puri with Milind Gunaji, Tabu and Pooja Batra. Both movies credited Kamal Hssan as the storywriter.

Whenever I hear of a remake either from Hindi to any language that I understand – Tamil, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati or even say Telugu or Punjabi (both of which I have limited knowledge of) I make it a point to see both versions. The vice-versa also happens i.e. from regional language to Hindi, then too I see both versions, it is enlightening to see how actors understand the same character and portray them. To this end I have seen Drishyam in three languages and I felt that Mohanlal in Malayalam was good and Ajay Devgan in Hindi did not disappoint though Kamalhassan in Tamil failed to impress (my view which I feel the others may not agree to) in Papanasam (that was the title in Tamil). I have seen many other remakes too, the last one being a remake of Bhagwan Dada’s “Albela” in Telugu and Sachin Pilgaonkar’s “Ashi Hi Banwa Banwi” which I discovered was a remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s “Biwi Aur Makaan”.

So, coming back to “Thevar Magan” and “Virasat” both were engrossing movies with good songs and lot of action. And it can be safely said that Amrish Puri’s version of the Raja Thakur matched Sivaji Ganesan’s Periya Thevar. And Anil Kapoor matched Kamalhassan in portraying the educated foreign-returned Thakur/ Shaktivel Thevar. Added to all this Anu Malik gave music almost at par with Ilaiyaraja, reusing some of the original tunes. Today’s song is one of the reused tunes. It has Amrish Puri lip-syncing in Hariharan’s voice. The song runs with the opening titles. There are two other portions of the song; one after the Thakur comes home angry after facing humiliation in the village panchayat and another portion of the song plays when the Thakur dies of a heart attack and the whole village is sad.

Today(22 june 2018) it is the birth anniversary of Amrish Puri. He was an all-round entertainer. He had acted in about 400 films between 1967 and 2005. I suppose the first time I took note of him was in the movies ‘Dostana’ where he played the villain’s henchman in Prem Chopra’s gang and ‘Naseeb’ where he was one among a horde of villains like Prem Chopra, Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor and Amjad Khan. Of course, at the same time we saw him in some Rajshri Production movies as a Chowdhary who refuses to acknowledge that his family is on bad times and his daughter needs to work to run the house as in “Saawan Ko Aane do”. He was a tyrant village head in Bapu’s “Hum Paanch”; numerous movies where he was the dreaded bad character his best being the memorable Mogambo in “Mr. India”. In the 90s he also became a loving father, grandfather; displayed his comic timing in movies like “Chachi420” and “Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kate” etc. I have sat through many movies that I have mentioned just to enjoy Amrish Puri whether as Durgaprasad Bharadwaj (Chachi 420) or Retired Inspector Abhyankar (Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kate) or Chaudhry Baldev Singh (DDLJ) or Thakur Durjan Singh (Karan Arjun) to name a few.

Remembering Mogambo on his birth anniversary with this song from “Virasat” which is written by Jaaved Akhtar.

Hullo Atuldom

Back to writing after a gap of 3 weeks. Lovely three weeks. Spent among the hills of North- East India and South India. Must thank my nephew for insisting that I accompany them. If the Himalayas and its snow-clad peaks are a heavenly sight so are the mountain ranges of the Nilgiris in the south – the common feature being acres of tea gardens. For the second weekend outing to the Nilgiris, I hold my son and niece responsible.

Trust humans to spoil a good thing. Where there was a lot of discipline among the locals at both places; tourists have ruined Ooty as much as say Lonavla, Khandala or Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra. Thankfully Sikkim has not faced much tourist onslaught and so is much cleaner. The air in these hill stations are so pollution free one doesn’t feel like returning to pavilion and the reality of daily routine. I am sure our Sadanand ji will be nodding in agreement being an avid traveller and having visited many such pristine locations. Hope I am right?

More about my travels some other time, I will get straight to the topic of this post.

This post is to wish the lady with the dazzling smile a very happy birthday. Unbelievable that she turned 51 yesterday. The dancer who out-dances her co-star without meaning to and effortlessly at that. But she is not all song and dance only; she is great in exhibiting all emotions with her eyes, face and voice. Just like the heroines of yesteryear, specially Madhubala, with whom she used to be constantly compared. Yes yes. I am speaking of Madhuri Dixit (now Nene). Having made her debut in movies through the 1984 Rajshri Productions ‘Abodh’ and tasting success with ‘Tezaab’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Tridev’, etc. she made a place for herself among the top-ranked heroines of Bollywood. Her teaming with Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Jackie Shroff (all the reigning stars of that period) was well received by the audiences. In the later half of the 90s she also teamed successfully with the 3Khans. She was lucky to have roles written specially for her as in Prakash Jha’s ‘Mrityudand’ and MF Hussain’s ‘Gaja Gamini’.

As much as I love Madhuri and her movies with their songs and dances, there are some songs of her’s which I don’t approve of. For example, her song in the movie ‘Anjaam’ – “Athraa Baras Ki Kunwaari Kali Thi. . . Choodi Tooti Chane Ke Khet Mein” or the song from ‘Khalnayak’ – “Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai”; and then there is ‘Mera Piya Ghar Aaya O Ram ji” in ‘Yaarana’ or even “Dhak Dhak Karne Laga” from ‘Beta’. All these songs and some more of that type, which made Madhuri Dixit a dancing-star, are full of double meanings and were lapped up by the public. But there also is a greater number of Madhuri songs which are just as popular and have more ‘decent’ lyrics. For example, “Didi Tera Devar Deewana”, and her songs from ‘Devadas’, ‘Saajan’, ‘Sangeet’ etc. (no, I am not going to list her filmography here 🙂 ). The song with this post is one such song.

It is from Rajkumar Santoshi’s 2000 release ‘Pukaar’ (making a debut on the blog).  The main cast of this film is Madhuri with Anil Kapoor and Namrata Shirodkar and a supporting cast of Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Rohini Hattangadi, KD Chandran, Neeraj Vora, Danny and Prabhu Deva (just for a song). It is a well-made film based on espionage in the army and had a love triangle added for spice which gives the central characters a lot of scope to showcase their ‘sacrificing attitudes’. The songs are penned by Javed Akhtar and AR Rehman is the composer. This song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Kavita Krishnamurty. It is a stage show to celebrate some event in the army cantonment. The song shows Madhuri decently matching steps to Prabhu Deva’s vigorous dance. Anil Kapoor, Namrata and the other members of the cast are in the audience which join in towards the song’s climax.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Madhuri!

“Teri Paayal Mere Geet”(1993) was produced by Prem Lalwani and directed by Rehman Naushad. The movie had Govinda, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Shakti Kapoor, Kadar Khan, Bharat Bhushan, Johny Lever, Nivin Nischol etc in it.

The movie had a theme that was more 1960s than 1990s and it came as no surprise that the movie had few takers at the box office.

The movie had eight songs in it. Here is the first song from “Teri Paayal Mere Geet”(1993) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by S P Balasubrahmaniam. Hasan Kamal is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

The picturisation shows Govinda lip sayncing this song while staying hidden from the views of Shakti Kapoor and Meenakshi Sheshadri.

With this song, “Teri Paayal Mere Geet”(1993) makes its debut in the blog.

Today’s song is from the blockbuster of the 90’s decade, ‘Hum aapke hain kaun’-94 (HAHK). The song ‘Didi tera devar deewana’ is sung by Lata Mangeshkar, S P Balasubramanyam and chorus. The Dev Kohli song is composed by Ramlaxman.

Many of the readers may find it difficult to digest that this comparatively ‘New’ song is discussed by a person who usually writes on ‘antiques ‘, i.e. songs from films of 30s and 40s. A solid jump of 50+ years ? Wonder pe Thunder ! You need not be surprised.

It is not that I do not like new films or songs, but nowadays everything about these films or songs is discussed on Print and TV media so much, that there is hardly anything left to write about. In any case, I have discussed earlier many songs from films of 80s,90s and 2000 and after that also. For example a song from film Lagaan-2001 was discussed,also from Zubeida-2000, Chameli ki shaadi-88 etc were discussed by me. In this connection, my favourite thinking is “Not all that was made before 1970 was good and not all that is made after 1970 is bad “.

These days I have lost patience to sit through 2 and more hours to watch a film, but I do have some new films listed as my favourites too. ( I saw these films in instalments,on TV). In recent times, few films impressed me no end. Film ‘Hum apke hai kaun'(hereafter called HAHK)-94 is one of them. I genuinely liked the film and few of its songs. The film came as a Puff of fresf air amidst the cluster of third rate meaningless movies. This Rajashri film totally fulfilled its purpose of clean entertainment. Though established in 1947, Rajashri films’ first noteworthy film was Aarti-62, followed by Dosti-64. From the 60s to the 80s, they gave many successful clean family entertaining films.

In 1988, Rajashri brought an era of Love stories that crossed class barriers. Film ‘Maine pyar kiya’-88 was a love story that touched hearts of youngsters. The film introduced a young Director Sooraj Barjatya ( grandson of the founder of RF) and also brought a star Salman Khan to make him a Superstar. It was his just second movie in career.

The same team came back in 5 years with HAHK and the film made all other hits like Sholey and Jai Santoshi Maa look like ‘also ran ‘! Few people know that HAHK is a remake of Rajashri’s own film “Nadiya ke paar-82”, starring Sachin, Sadhna Singh,Inder Thakur, Mitali etc etc. ( Inder Thakur died in Air India crash soon after.)

As is well known, the famous painter M F Hussain had crush on Madhuri. He saw film HAHK 85 times-as per a report in Indian Express (variously differing in other news portals from 60 to 90 times !). He then made a film ‘Gajgamini ‘-2000, with Madhuri. As expected, the film was a disaster at the Box Office. He also made lot many paintings of Madhuri ( she took payments per sitting).

As per a report in Indian Express, Madhuri got paid an amount of 2.75 crores for HAHK role of Nisha. It was also the first film to cross a collection of 1 Billion. With an investment of just 43 million, the film grossed 3.1 Billion in all. In 1994, mind you ! It was described as “the biggest Block Buster of Modern Era”. The film won Film Fare awards for Best Film, Best Director and of course best Heroine. It bagged the National award for Best popular film providing Wholesome Entertainment.

Why did the film become so captivating for the Indian audience ? The reasons could be…..

1. We like big business families with big houses with big lawns, so that Cricket can be played.
2. We love big weddings with all details,games,dance and music.
3. Nowadays, as a result of HAHK, no wedding is complete without Dance and music.
4. We love to see beautiful girls and handsome naughty boys falling in Love.
5. Comedy plots are a must.
6. Interesting characters like Anupam kher and Bindu.
7. New meaning for coughing…for young boys and girls.
8. Chhup Chhup ke Pyaar !
9. Active and clever Dog.
10. A Happy Ending !

Madhuri Dixit is my favourite actress ( but I am not MFHussain,please). Once I had a pleasure to get introduced to her when I went to a relative who stayed on the first floor of the same building where Madhuri stayed on second floor. She had come to them like an ordinary Marathi Mulgi in casual dress and still looked beautiful. Madhuri was born on 15-5-1967 and her first film was Abodh-84. She acted in 71 films. She came in limelight with her dance on song ‘Ek do teen…’from Tezaab-88. It was choreographed by Saroj khan. Same year she did a controversial scene with Vinod Khanna in film “Dayavaan”-88. In 1993, she created waves with her dance and song “Choli ke peeche..” in film Khalnayak. This too was choreographed by Saroj khan. Her last film released is ‘Total Dhamaal”-2018, directed by Inder Kumar.

Salman khan ( Abdul Rasheed Salim Salman khan) was born on 27-12-1965. Except for his first 2 films, I never liked him, as an actor and a human being. That of course is besides the point. His films mostly run full houses. Till today he acted in 106 films,his latest being Loveratri-2018. 2 films are slated for release in 2019 already.After success of these 2 initial films, Salman khan thought that the Filmy name of ‘ PREM ‘ was lucky for him. Subsequently, till 2015, he has used name PREM in 15 films. ( by the way, Amitabh Bachhan used the name VIJAY in 20 films till 2010, Jeetendra used it in 18 films and Mithun used it in 16 films.)

The film’s music played a major role in its success. The Music Director was Ramlaxman. Originally, it was a team of two brothers- elder was Surendra and the Younger was Vijay Patil. They used to be a part of professional orchestras, doing public shows all over Maharashtra. The popular and very successful Comedian of Marathi cinema- Dada Knodake was impressed with the duo and offered them his film, ” Pandu Havaldar-75″. It was Dada Kondake who gave them the name Ram Laxman since they were brothers. Film’s music became very popular and they gave music to Dada Kondke’s 11 films in a row, from 75 to 82. Their first break for Hindi films came in 1977 with Agent Vinod.

The elder brother expired immediately after their first film itself, due to Jaundice. Vijay decided to continue the name Ramlaxman. His first major break in Hindi came after 25 films. ‘ Maine Pyar Kiya”-89 was a Musical hit film. Within next 5 years and another 25 films he gave music to HAHK. This time he hit Gold. The success was unprecedented and long lasting. Till 2016, he gave music to 61 Hindi films, with 433 songs to his credit. Side by side, he was doing Marathi films also. From 1975 to 2011 i.e. in 36 years, he did 37 Marathi films.

The story of Hum Apke hai kaun-94 was–

It is a very simple plot. Mohnish Behl ( Rajesh Nath) and Salman ( Prem Nath)are brothers raised by their bachelor uncle Alok Nath ( Kailash Nath). Alok Nath arranges an engagement for Mohnish Behl with Renuka Shahane ( Pooja), daughter of his old friends Anupam Kher ( Prof. Sidharth Caudhary) and Reema Lagoo ( Mrs. Chaudhary). At the engagement, Salman meets Renuka’s younger sister Madhuri ( Nisha). Through the engagement, marriage, and then preparations for the birth of Renuka and Mohnish’s first child, Salman and Madhuri secretly flirt and become closer and closer. Finally, they reveal their love to Renuka who immediately approves and declares her plan to arrange their engagement (in her role as the oldest female in Salman’s family). But before she can tell anyone else, she dies after a tragic fall, leaving her son motherless. In an effort to provide a mother for the baby, Alok suggests to Anupam and Reema that Mohnish should marry Madhuri. Madhuri at first misunderstands them to mean Salman. However, even when she learns the truth, she decides not to say anything as it has brought so much joy to everyone to plan this wedding. Salman understands and accepts her decision. At the last moment, the truth is revealed, through a Dog Redo ( Tuffy ). The families understand immediately the purpose of their sacrifice and applaud them for making it, but insist that it is purposeless, Madhuri can move into the household as an aunt rather than a mother to this orphaned baby. Happy Ending with another wedding.

Today’s song ” Didi tera devar deewana” was easily the most popular song of the film ( though I like ” Paise de do joote le lo” more), out of the 14 songs the film had.This number (14) was much above the average number of film songs per film during a period from 1950 onwards- that is about 45 years. The film too was longer than average films. It was 3 hours and 43 minutes running time. Very few people know that this song was ‘ inspired’ ( read copied) from the song ” Saare Nabian”, sung by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The song tune was forced upon the composer by the producers and the director. The film’s album sold like hot cakes.

Let us now enjoy the teasing song, which is easily one of the longest songs spanning 7m and 38 seconds.

Blog Day : 3512 Post No. : 14111

How do I begin this post? I am at a loss. I have so many things running in my head. Should I say Sunday 25th March 2018, was a bad day or sad day. But it was definitely a day which began sadly for me. I normally begin my Sundays an hour later than working days, but this Sunday was different. The constant buzzing of my mobile due to incoming messages disturbed me. And one of the message was from my son, who was travelling, and had not slept in the bus. He was seeing the internet site of a news channel which carried the shocking news that the darling of the audiences SRIDEVI had passed away in Dubai of a CARDIAC Arrest. That jolted me and my first reaction was to google for confirmation. And sure enough the news had broken on the internet a few minutes back. The first person to break the news to Atulites was Satyajitji from DOWN Under. And the reactions followed through the day- here there everywhere.

There were messages being posted and reposted and forwarded among the various WhatsApp- groups all trying to find a reason for the sudden death of a supposedly perfectly healthy human being. The mystery still continues. But we have lost a “Khwaabon Ki Shehzaadi”, a style icon, an inspiration for numerous aspiring actors. A person who was passionate about her work. She was comfortable doing an Indian classical dance as well as out-of-tune Bollywood-style numbers the equivalent of which in South Indian movies are called Dappang-Kootu; though Dappang-Kootu is largely folk dance based and Sridevi was good in all of it.

On the day the news broke all the news channels spoke of her work in Tamil as well as Hindi movie and mentioned in the passing about her having worked in Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu as well. Having started at the very young age of 4 or 5 she has acted opposite all the giants of the Indian film industry of the period starting with Sivaji Ganesan and Gemini Ganesan in her first movie “Kandan Karunai” as child star in Tamil; followed by “Maa Naana Nirdoshi” in Telugu, “Kumara Sambhavam” in Malayalam, and “Apna Desh” in Hindi as Rajesh Khanna’s niece- cannot forget “Rona kabhi nahin rona chahe toot jaaye koi khilona” although her fist outing as child star in Hindi was “Rani Mera Naam” in 1972. I have also seen her in the Tamil version of “Apna Desh” “Nam Naadu” as niece to MGR. Just before she began performing adult roles we saw her as sister to Lakshmi in “Julie” in the iconic song “My heart is beating”, she was just 11 then.

From the age of 13 she graduated to doing adult roles and Kamal Haasan and Rajnikanth were her first co-actors. There was time when she was a heroine to many actors of the South Indian film industry in whose films she had acted as a child.

Her debut in Hindi was in the not-so-successful “Solva Sawan” in 1979 opposite Amol Palekar; she had also starred in the Tamil original and the Telugu remake. But after her second attempt in Hindi movies in the Jeetendra starrer “Himmatwala” in 1983. I distinctly remember that year I had been to Hyderabad to my mama’s place and there were these huge posters everywhere of this beautiful heroine amid rows of “colourful pots” in what turned out to be a song which is still popular “nainon mein sapna, sapno mein sajna, sajna pe dil aagaya”. That was also the time when Jaya Prada had made her debut in Hindi movies through “Sargam”. And the teenager that I was then, decided Sridevi was a threat to Jaya Prada, and refused to see that movie. I think the first Sridevi movie I saw of my own choice was “Inquilaab” because Amitabh Bachchan was her co-star. And then I was floored by her. Subsequently I have many of her movies and was particularly fond of her pairing with Jeetendra and Amitabh Bachchan though that was only in three movies, she was the FEMALE SUPERSTAR of her times. She also paired successfully with Anil Kapoor and Mithun Chakravarty.

28-2-2018
—————–
I have been writing this for the last two days and still the reality has not sunk-in. I am still thinking of the day when the news broke. In the meantime, there has been news that our shehzaadi died due to “accidental drowning” but whatever be the reason she is lost to us and her numerous fans. But the people who will miss her the most will be her two young daughters and husband, immediate family and friends. They have undergone great mental stress this last few days, the time that it took them to get her mortal remains from Dubai. My thoughts are with them. They say the cremation will finally happen today. May our darling Sridevi find eternal peace.

Over the last two days, as I was talking of a star/ an actor I loved, I told my mom-in-law about all the Sridevi- Jaya Prada movies of the 80s where Sri always played a stronger character and Jaya had all the crying to do. My sister was thinking of all the famous songs of the Jeetendra- Sridevi- Jaya Prada movies which could not have been done by anyone else. Everyone must have had a song of that time which they loved but will never admit as those were songs with seemingly no-sense. But they all were successful.

A thought just went through my mind. The day the news came on TV some channels showed a scene from one of her first movies as a child. It had baby Sridevi “crying unconsolably running a short distance and collapsing on to her Knee and still crying.” Her last released movie “Mom” (2017) has her running similarly, crying uncontrolled and dropping on to her knee. Uncanny I must say!!

The song with this post is from “Lamhe”. I had originally intended that the song should accompany a post on the graceful Waheeda Rehman, but I am presenting it here on this sad occasion. There is an incident behind the shoot of this song which Yash Chopra has related. The shoot was scheduled in London in 1991. That was the time her father passed away. She left the shoot midway to be with her family during the time of grief. The schedule was that this song was to be shot and upon her return Yash Chopra offered to change the schedule or cancel it altogether. But such was Sri’s passion to her work that she was ready to do what the director asked for. Anupam Kher her co-actor in the movie adds that in between shots she used to be drowned in grief but there used to be no trace of that emotion once she was infront of the camera. She was a darling of the camera too.

Rest in Peace Dear—Om Shanti, Shanti Shanti.
