If one asks Hindi movie people things like what is your favourite festival,favourite season etc, what would be their reply ? whichever festival and whichever season gives us song opportunities, would be the reply.

Little wonder then that Holi is the favourite festival of Hindi movies and rain is the favourite season.

But when we watch the Holi festival songs or rain songs in Hindi movies, we find that these songs are mostly “filmy”, viz unrealistic and sanitised. Reel life picturisation bears little resemblance to how things are in real life.

When it comes to rain songs, we find the hero and heroines singing merrily in rain, without a care in the world. For instance, we have Amitabh Bachchan and Mausami Chatterji singing in Mumbai rains and enjoying it. In real life, people would take shelter in nearby buildings and they would be very concerned about their wet clothes. In our childhood, our moms admonished us that we would catch cold if we get wet in rains. Clearly Amitabh Bachchan and Mausami Chatterji’s parents had not told them about the ill effects of getting wet in rains.

And that is not all. Mumbai rains are not as romantic as this song makes out to be. It is a nightmare in reality, as any Mumbaikar knows. Roads turn into four feet deep rivers and it is unsafe to cross them, as there is the risk of gutters being open. Sadashiv Amrapurkar’s brother ( who was a famous doctor of Mumbai) lost his life after falling in one such gutter a few years ago.

In reality, rains in Mumbai throws public life in disarray. Road vehicles, as well as trains, including local trains get affected. Even flights get affected.

But I have found that electricity is surprisingly intact in Mumbai despite torrential rains. Trains, in case they run, runs merrily over submerged tracks which is an amazing feat, seeeing that many electrical motors involved in Railway operations get submerged. People who get stranded and have to stay back in their offices or in the homes of their friends/ relatives have access to electricity which ebables them to share their rainy season selfies with this whatsapp friends. 🙂 It is during such calamities that Apple phone users realise that they shpuld either carry their chargers with themselves or they should have friends/ relatives who are also Apple users like them. 🙂

If you are a resident of any place other than Mumbai, then the first casuality of rains in electricity. First rain of the season, and one finds electicity vanishing for hours. When I was in Izatnagar, Bareilly, first rain of the season invariably led to electricity getting tripped as trees would fall on electrical wires (we were told) and electricity would get restored only after some 24 hours or so.

I always wonder how electricity department persons had their electrical wires passing in the vicinity of trees who would then get uprooted even if the rain was nothing but passing showers.

In Bareilly, I had another worry. I wondered if electricity had gone off in every household or is it only in my household. I was confused because the household located nearby would be fully illuminated throughout night even if other households had no electicity. Railway electical people knew their job. They would make sure that their top boss had uninterrupted electricity supply come what may and they could keep the other residents in the dark. So if other households have light and my household does not , then I worried that the wires coming to my house may have got disconnected somewhere due to wind. And that often turned out to be the case.

And what about the case when roop started leaking after heavy rain ! The persons who were supposed to look after such repairs would come long after rain had subsided and the water from roof had drained away. Then, like Indian police in Hindi movies who appeared long after the crime was committed and clues obliterated, they would ask- where is the leakage. I cannot sdee any leakage.

We are living in modern era of mobile phones and dish TVs. If one has back up electricity (through inverter) When it rains, you get message on your TV screen- “Your set top box is not getting signals. Please check the weather to see if it cloudy.” Just imagine the situation when world cup is going on and India your favourite team, has an important cricket man on TV. That is the situation today (6 july 2019). So imagine my situation when I found electricity gone at 3 :30 AM in the early morning and not coming back for four hours. One starts worrying how one would be able to watch the match. Inverter cannot last till then unless electricity comes back and recharges the inverter battery. Moreover, inverter can only run TV, tubelights and fans. What about fridge, geiser, AC etc. The stuff kept inside fridge would get spoiled if the black out gets prolonged.

If blackout gets prolonged, then even water supply may get affected after some time because water supply depends on working of electric driven pump motors.

I can safely state that Hindi movie rain songs do not touch upon the above mentioned major aftereffects of rain. Hindi movies touch the after effects of rains only superficially. As far as Hindi movies are concerned, rains means clothes of actors getting soaked and the actors enjoying it, that is all.

If one thinks that new rain songs of Hindi movies, that have come up after 1980s keep up with changing times and touch upon the inconveniences brought about by rains, one can only be disappointed. With time, the rain songs have undergone changes, but they are not necessarily changes for the better.

I came across an “interesting” Hindi movie rain song. The special feature of this song is that it has Hinglish lyrics in it. In the golden era, we used to have Hindi / Urdu/ Sanskrit lyrics such as “Abke saawan mein jee jale”, “rimjhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat”, “barkha raani zara jam ke barso” etc. Even post golden era had songs like “baadal yoon garajta hai”, “tip tip barsa paani” etc. But the lyrics of this song under discussion takes the case. The wording of the song is “rain is falling chhamaa chham chham”. It is so bad that it is good. 🙂

Most rain songs in Hindi movies are picturised on lead pair and they are their personal intimate affairs. But this song is like a community affair. In fact, the movie makers have taken short cuts and cheated on the movie goers. The movie makers have taken “dahi haandi” festival and “Ganpati Festival” situations and tried to pass dance steps and situations of these festivals as a rain song.

If you wondered how badly and cheaply someone called Atul can dance, here is one such spectacle for you to witness. This song is picturised on Atul Agnihotri, Pooja Bhatt and others as a supposedly rain song. Get actors wet in rain, and there is your rain song- that appears to be the philosophy of the movie maker. The same short cut philosophy was followed for creating songs of other genre as well. For creating muslim devotional song, lyrics of such a song would include words like “Maula”, “Allah”, “Sajda” etc and the devotional song was ready.

Coming to the same under question, it is sung by Sudesh Bhonsle, and chorus. Surendra Sathi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shyam Surinder.

Name of the movie ? “Gunehgaar” (1995). It is good to see the movie maker pleading guilty in the title itself. 🙂

The movie was produced by Maan Singh Deep and Kalyani Singh and directed by Vikram Bhatt. The movie had Mithun Chakraborty, Atul Agnihotri, Pooja Bhatt, Tisca Chopra, Kiran Kumar, Ishrat Ali, Baby Ghazala, Mushtaq Khan, Anil Nagrath, Vishwajeet Pradhan, Ram Sethi, Girja Shankar, Mahavir Shah, Naresh Suri etc in it.

Here is this “rain” song from “Gunehgaar”(1995). With this song, the movie makes its debut in the blog. The lyricist and music directors also make their debuts in the blog with this song.

Hullo All

Todays’ post features a rather new song. It is only 19 years old. It is from “Fiza” (2000) which was directed by Khalid Mohammed who used to be known as a film critic before he got into film-making. He has made “Fiza”; “Zubeida”; “Tehzeeb” and “Silsilay”. He is also the son of yesteryear actress Zubeida about whom our in-house encyclopaedia has written in this article.

Before “Zubeida” Khalid Mohammed made “Fiza” with Jaya Bachchan, Karishma Kapoor, Hritik Roshan, with Neha and Bikram Saluja (in miniscule roles of the love interests of Hritik and Karishma). The movie also had Sushmita Sen, Manoj Bajpayee, Isha Koppikar and Asha Sachdev in guest appearances. If I am not wrong this was Jaya Bachchan’s comeback into commercial cinema after being away for many years. Before this she had acted in “Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Maa” but that was what is called an off-beat or art film.

The movie’s story was:

Six years after Fiza’s (Karishma Kapoor) brother, Aman (Hrithik Roshan) disappears during the 1993 Mumbai riots, she goes to look for him. When she does find him, to her horror she sees that he has joined a terrorist group. She forces him to come home, and he finally re-unites with their mother (Jaya Bachchan). However, his allegiance and thoughts make him want to join the terrorist network, led by Murad Khan (Manoj Bajpai). A confrontation with two men who harass Fiza leads to Aman revealing his involvement with the terrorist network in front of his sister, mother and the police. His mother’s grief and disappointment eventually lead her to commit suicide. Fiza tries once more to find her brother, with the help of Anirudh (Bikram Saluja). Aman has been sent on a mission to kill two powerful politicians; when he does succeed in assassinating them, his own terrorist group tries to kill him. He escapes and Fiza follows him. They confront each other and with the police closing in on him, he asks her to kill him. After much persuasion Fiza kills her brother. Aman dies saying the first Kalma in Islam, “La illa ha ill Allah, Mohammad dur Rasullalah”

Karishma Kapoor was the first Kapoor daughter to enter the film industry if one chooses to forget her paternal aunt (bua) Ritu (Kapoor) Nanda’s walk in the rain in “Shri 420” and Sanjana Kapoor’s (Shashi Kapoor’s daughter) brief film career. She managed to find her spot in the industry by her hardwork and succeeded on her own terms. She began her journey in 1991 as a teenager opposite (south actor) Harish and went on to act in close to 65 films which had her pair with Govinda in some hit comedies of the mid-nineties. Her roles in the 1996 release “Raja Hindustani” and 1997 “Dil Toh Paagal Hai” (DTPH) made audiences realise the range in her abilities. DTPH also got her a National Award and Filmfare and Zee awards for best supporting actress. “Fiza” and “Zubeida” were movies where she was the only actor who was a star. It is amazing that these movies are remembered for her work in them inspite of her fan-following for the masala movies that she worked in that period.

Today she turns a year older (girls never tell their age :)) but doesn’t look her age as she has maintained herself wonderfully. The reason I chose this lesser known song is it shows her dancing abilities, her beauty and the expressiveness of her eyes. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, written by Sameer and Anu Malik is the music director. The song occurs when a group of Fiza’s ex-class fellows comment on how serious a person she is and doesn’t live-life like youngsters; partying and relaxing etc. Isha Koppikar (in the lavender casuals) who is one of her friends asks Fiza to prove the others wrong. Bikram Saluja is also present.

Wish You a Very Happy Birthday Lolo a.k.a. Karishma Kapoor.

Naachoon Naachoon! Na na na naachoon!


Song-Naachoon naachoon (Fiza)(2000) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Anu Malik

Has anyone seen today’s google doodle?!!!!

It is dedicated to our dear Mogambo a.k.a Durgaprasad Bharadwaj a.k.a Chaudhry Baldev Singh a.k.a Thakur Durjan Singh a.k.a Balwant Rai a.k.a Kishorilal a.k.a Amrish Puri.  He would have been 87 today.

Feels like they have appreciated some one close to our family. The doodle shows him in the look he sported for DDLJ – ‘Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ (1995) as Chaudhry Baldev Singh. That movie is remembered as much for the last scene where the Chaudhry tells his daughter

jaa beta jaa. Apni Raj ke paas jaa. Jaa Simran, jee le apni zindagi jaa beta jaa

The last scene can be seen on YT at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAaL5HZC5YI. The movie is remembered for this last scene, as much for all the romance and romantic songs that it had.

Can anyone forget his character ‘Dong’ in the movie ‘Tehalka’ (1992) where he kept repeating “Dong kabhi wrong nahi hota” much on the lines of “Mogambo khush hua” from ‘Mr. India’ (1987). Here I must admit that I haven’t seen ‘Tehalka’ but if I am not wrong, ‘Dong’ and his song “Shom Shom Shom Shomo sha sha” is the only thing in public memory from that movie.

There have been similar movies where this much-loved character actor, with a very distinct voice, was the only saving grace. He has played an almost equal number of benevolent characters as in the 1999 release ‘Gair’ as he has played his malevolent characters. He has tried his hand at singing (the above-mentioned song of ‘Tehalka’ was in his voice) and shaking a leg too and looked as if he enjoyed dancing.

Today’s song shows him in his dancing element. It is from the 1998 Rajkumar Santoshi produced and directed ‘China Gate’. It has music by Anu Malik with Sameer as the lyricist. The song shows him dancing in the company of the folk dancer played by Urmila Matondkar, KD Chandran, Tinnu Anand, Viju Khote, Jagdeep, Anjaan Shrivastav, Sameer Soni, and Harish Patel.

Remembering Amrish Puri in this very lively avataar

——————————————————————————————
My Railway related reminiscences- 3
——————————————————————————————

In my first article in the series, I discussed my first posting at Secunderabad. In my second articles, I went back into the past and discussed my probation days, including my stay at Vadodara.

In this third episode, I go back to the future ! Here I discuss my second posting.

My first posting was perhaps in the best place in the Railway zone of South Central Railway. I was posted in the capital city. I stayed near Secunderabad Railway station and I got a Railway quarter there. A capital city has so many attractions as well as opportunities. Those were the days when “computer” was a big buzz word. We had computer coaching institutes mushrooming all over India. A typical computer course taught DOS, wordstar, Lotus 123 and dbase3 . Does it ring any bells with some readers ? 🙂

A government employee is supposed to take permission if he/she wants to study in any course while in government service, with the undertaking that his study would not affect his performance in his/her job. I duly took this permission and began to attend one such course in evening.

My boss in my work place was an old fashioned conservation man. Same was the case with my bosses at the Headquarter. One standard advise that I would be given by them was – “concentrate on learning your job instead of learning about computers.” They did not share my “vision” that computers are a big productivity tools and they would play an important role in our lived in the coming days.

My HQ bosses decided that the facilities at the capital city were harmful for me and so they decided to post me to a place where such facilities were non existent.

They identified a place that was poles apart when compared with Secunderabad. It was called Purna, in Marathwada region of Maharashtra. I was posted there.

This news was naturally a setback for me. But there was not much one could do about it. This place was a junction station and it had MG lines.I took a night train called Kacheguda Ajmer express (the most prestigious train in the section). The train started at night from Secunderabad and arrived Purna after midnight at around 4 AM or so.

In Secunderabad, I was a small fish in a big ocean as far as Railways set up was concerned, but I was going to be a big fish in a small pond like Purna. There I was being posted as the incharge of all Mechanical Engineering activities of Railways in and around Purna. My beat covered places up to Manmad (360 km to west), Khandwa (405 km to north), Adilabad (242 km to east) and Nizamabad (150 km to South East). All four places were in different directions and were located in three different states. When I think about it, the area under my jurisdiction was larger than the entire Railway system in some small countries. All this was MG section.

I arrived Purna Railway station at the early hours. Since I was going to be the boss of all I surveyed, people had arrived at the station to receive me. People unfamiliar to me always had difficulty identifying me. I got down from the station and stated looking for people who may have arrived to receive me. Likewise those who had arrived to receive me were lookng for someone who should look like a boss to them. Finally we managed to locate each other. They took me to Railway Officers Guest House, a small two room guest house. One room was booked for me and this room was going to be my place of stay till I got my regular accomodation.

Most people travel in style, carrying large number of suitcases which they have great difficulty fitting inside their train berth and they then secure their suitcases under lock and key. I on the other hand woul travel with very modest looking luggage, typically a bag, and a jhola, and sometimes a suitcase. I would shove them under my train berth. No securing them under lock. In fact even my suitcase would not be locked if I could help it. I secured my suitcase only to avoid the embarrasment of an unlocked suitcase getting open and all its content falling out. And my luggage never got stolen despite lying all unsecured !

The modestness of my luggage was one of the reasons why unfamiliar people coming to receive me at the station would be unable to locate me at first glance. 🙂 Once my luggage waskept at the rest house, naturally it would remain all unlocked.

The small rest house had very small number of staff. Cleaning and dusting of the rooms was done by a lady. He small child would accompany her. The door of the room would remain open all the time.

In the morning I went to my work place. This place was a steam loco shed, located towards south of the Purna Railway station. In its prime, this loco shed had over 60 MG steam locomotives. The number had come down a good deal.

The office was located on the first floor of a old fashioned British Style building. My chamber was quite large and spacious vis a vis the small chamber that I had in my previous place of posting. There were hundred of staff in the office. People there still complained about there being less number of staff. 🙂

A few months later, my top boss (Chief Mechanical Engineer, based at Secunderabad ) paid a visit to Purna. During the course of his “inspection” of the place, he enquired- “how many clerks are there in the shed ?”.

The reply was “The work has reduced drastically, and so has the number of clerks. Now we have ONLY 40 clerks.”

“ONLY 40 clerks. My office at Secunderabad dealing with entire zone only has 39 clerks !”- the Chief Mechanical Engineer exclaimed !

Though I joined at Purna, my heart was still at Secunderabad and I would try to go back to Secunderabad at weekends and holidays, much to the chagrin of my immediate boss. I would leave for Secunderabad on friday and arrive back on Monday morning.

Once I went to Secunderabad on weekend and arrived back on monday morning. While at Secunderabad, I boaght sweets, with the intention of consuming them at leisure in Purna. As usual, my luggage remained unlocked in my room.

When I came back to my room in the evening, I found that out of 20 pieces of sweet, only one piece remained in the bag where I had kept the sweet packet. The cleaning lady and her young son were looking very worried. I realised that the small kid had opened the box, and seeing the sweets, he kept eating the pieces and her indulgent mother could not prevent him in time. Now both of them were very worried.

I looked at the matter from the point of view of the kid and decided that it was alright. I behaved as if nothing happened. The mother and child waited till then morning to see my reaction. I showed no reaction and both of them were mightily relieved. It must have been an unexpected big lucky break for them. I could notice that they were silently thankful for me from the core of their hearts.

With time, I stopped going to Secunderabad at weekends. Instead, I would go to the nearly towns in the first half and be back by night. There was Parbhani (30 km to the north) and Nanded (30 km to the south) from Purna. These two district places had may be 4-5 movie halls each. I would visit one of these places during weekends, watch a movie and would come back to Purna by night.

All this journey was by train, of course. On one such occasion, I had gone to Parbhani. I watched some movie and then boarded the evening train coming towards Purna. The middle aged person seated opposite me in the first class coach was a PWD engineer in Maharashtra Government. He was coming back to his Nanded residence after attending some meeting at Aurangabad. I got introduced to him. He told me “kabhi koi kaam ho to bataana. Indian ka Home minister S B Chawhan ka main family friend hoon.” He also gave me his home address of Nanded.

I got down at Purna.

I was a “different” kind of Railway officer. I believed in things like honesty, fairplay etc. My immediate boss (based at Secunderabad), on the other hand was an archtypical Government official who believed in sucking up to the boss as the easy and only way of success. And he expected me to do the same. There were occassions when “failures” would take place and he would ask me to suspend someone. I would carry out my investigation into the failure and would found that the person required to be suspended was innocent. So I would refuse to suspend the innocent man.

This happened on quite a few occasions. He at his level would tell the division boss”(DRM)- “driver was responsible for late start of train. I have asked my Purna officer to suspend the driver.” I would investigate the matter and I would find that the driver was innocent.

The boss looked for opportunity to get his own back. One usual opportunity was to write adversely about my performance in my annual confidential report. I was an unusual kind of person who did not give a damn and I felt that spoiling my ACR was a non issue. He got his opportunity to actually hurt me. I wanted to take leave because my parents were calling me. It is nt difficult for people to realise the probable reason. 😉 I foolishly informed my boss of the reason why I wanted leave. So he got a great opportunity to harass me. It is not possible to give you leave right now. But you will be given leave next month. He would tell me. I woul;d belibve him and ask for leave the next month. Then also he would say the same thing. This went on for three months and by the time it was clear t one and all that my boss was using this opportunity to harrass me.

I felt very low when I was denied leave for the third time. I felt helpless. Then I remembered the Nanded based man. I went to Nanded and met him. I asked him to help. He was of course taken aback. He was no doubt a family friend of Indian home minister and a school mate of his son but what he had told me in the train may have been an exaggeration of his influence. In any case, meeting with him and talking with him served as some balm and gave me some mental relief.

A few weeks later, I received a telegram- “father serious, come home immediately.” I , alongwith my staff were naturally aghast, my supervisor (Loco Foreman) raised hell with the division headquarter and arranged for my leave on urgent basis. I was actually quite worried till I reached home and I was relieved to know that my father was alright. It was the usual time tested way of securing leave if the proper way of obtaining leave failed.

This episode taught me a valuable lesson that I tell everyone to follow. You should never tell others (especially your boss) about your “problems” and expect him to sympathise with you. Your vulnerabilities will be used against you. You should give the impression that you have no problems whatsoever. I have followed this lesson after this experience. I have rarely asked for any leave during the last 20 years of my service. And I tell everyone that I am happy wherever I am posted. And whatever I state happens to be the truth as well.

The movie that I had watched at Parbhani that evening (when I met that PWD Engineer) may have been either “Daamini” (1993) or “Dil Aashna Hai”(1992) or some other movie. I am not sure now. Let me assume that it was “Daamini” (1993).

This movie was directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. It had Rishi Kapoor, Meenakshi Seshadri, Sunny Deol, Amrish Puri, Tinu Anand, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Anjan Srivastava, Rohini Hattangadi, Aamir Khan, K K Raina, Paresh Rawal, Sulbha Arya, Vijayendra Ghatge, Viju Khote, Achyut Potdar, Asha Sharma etc in it.

The movie had five songs. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

The song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Meenakshi Sheshadri.

With this song, “Daamini”(1993) makes its debut in the blog.

My Railway Related Reminiscences – 1
——————————————————————————————

When I look back into days gone by, I find that my recollections of the past can be divided neatly into decades. I have vague recollections of 1960s as I was quite young in that decade. 1970s is the decade that I recall most vividly as well as most fondly as I was as my precocious best in this decade, being in my teens in this decade.

I find that my recollections of subsequent decades are rather more vague. I can tell you what I was doing in 1975, but I do not have similar vivid recollections of 1985, 1995 or even 2005 !

The above applies to my recollections on Hindi movies and HFM as well. I cannot recall even one Hindi movie song of 2005 or 2015 if my life dwepended on it, but I can readily recollect dozens of songs of 1975.

Since our younger regulars never tire of reminding us that good songs were created in 1990s and later as well, I thought that I should try and discuss some songs from those years even though my recollections of those days are not as vivid as my recollections of 1970s. 🙂

Much of my 1980s was spent in my “higher” education. From 1990s onwards, I found myself posted in various parts of the country.

My initial postings were in South, in what was South Central Railway, with its HQ at Secunderabad. My initial days there were spent in twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. My first posting was very much in that place. Later, I was posted at a small place in Marathwada called Purna.

I watched quite a few movies in Hyderabad/ Secunderabad. Those were Hindi movies, Telugu movies as well as English movies.

I was a firm believer that one should walk on foot in any new place wherever you wanted to go. That helped you familiarise yourself with various landmarks of the place. I applied my theory rigidly. I would walk six km daily from my residence to my workplace in the morning and then come back by walk in the evening. So I used to walk 12 km daily. 🙂

On weekends, I would plan to watch movies. I used to buy all the three English daily newspapers published in the city, namely Deccan Chronicle, Hindu and Indian Express. The three newspapers together form such a bulk that sometimes people would mistake me for a newspaper vendor. 🙂

I would look at the cinema hall ads to find which movies were playing in which movie halls. After identifying which movie to watch and where to watch, I would decide how to reach there.

It was sometime in 1991 or may be 1992 that I decided to go and watch “Phool Aur Kaante”(1991).

THe movie was playing in a movie hall in old city of Hyderabad. I stayed in Secunderabad near the Secunderabad Railway Stations at a distance of 15 km. How to reach there.

I boarded a local train from Secuderabad and reached Kacheguda Railway station. From there I walked towards old city, in the general direction of Hyderabad(aka Nampally) Railway station. I had a map of the twin city and I would consult it often to find locations of interest to me.

I kept walking on and on and came across old city, full of densely populated areas. I did not have to go Huderabad Railway station. The movie hall was somewhere in between Kacheguda and Hyderabad Railway stations.

I arrived the hall well in time so I had little difficulty buying a ticket for for matinee show. Now, show beginning at 3 PM is matinee show for me, as I was born and brought up in North India, but in Hyderabad, it was called first show there. I think it is still called first show in those parts.

That was not the only difference. What I knew as “cold” drink in north was called “cool” drink there. 🙂

I soon found lots of movie watchers arriving at the movie hall. Now, more than two decades later, I have read about the movie going audience of Hyderabad from our beloved inhouse encylopaedia Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh in many of his articles. Bulk of movie watchers who had gathered belonged to that kind. There were burkha nasheen females accompanied by lots of small kids. It was not as if this movie had a well known hero. This movie had debutants in lead roles. I wondered why all of them had so eagerly gathered to watch the movie where a newcomer was the hero.

The show began after some wait. It goes withot saying that bulk of movie watchers enjoyed the movie thorougly. I would have enjoyed this movie like them if I was two decades younger. But during these two decades, I had learnt thinks like “logical” thinking etc. I was applying logic on the movie and was not able to find much to enjoy. Now, the hero and heroine are college students. But they were hardly seen studying even for one minute. They would be seen singing dancing and romancing for the entire duration of the movie. Come on, how can one even get admitted to a decent college if all one does is teasing the female students and making passes on them. And in which college one finds females falling in love with the eve teaser. In real life India, such male students would get expelled from the college, and here in the movie he is being glorified. Moreover, how can such students even survive the academic rigours of college life ?

Moreover, I believe that one goes to college to study and not to romance. There is plenty of time and opportunity left in life in future for such romantic pursuits once you have successfully completed your studies and have become financially independent.

Conscientious movie watchers like me are in minority and no movie makers do any thing to appease movie goers like me. Movie makers merrily go on to make movies like this which are big hits at the box office and which are happily lapped up by simple minded movie goers.

I have covered one song from this movie in the past. That “past” happened to be 11 june 2009, viz exactly ten years ago. So, this movie becomes an ideal case of blog ten year challenge.

So here is the second song from “Phool Aur Kaante” (1991) on this day viz 11 june 2019, exactly ten years after covering the first song of the movie in the blog. This song is sung by Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

This movie was produced by Dinesh Patel and directed by Kuku Kohli. This movie had Ajay Devgun, Madhoo, Amrish Puri, Raza Murad, Raghunath, Jagdeep, Goga Kapoor, Suresh Chatwal, Aruna Irani etc in it. The movie was the launch vehicle of Ajay Devgun. His stunt master father Veeru Devgun was behind the production of this movie.

Watch the picturisation of the song. The song is quite enjoyable to listen to and watch to in you can switch off your conscience and sensibilities. But I have great difficulty doing that.

Nevertheless, here is this song from “Phool Aur Kaante” (1991) which was hugely popular those days and continues to remain so till this day.

Blog Day : 3974 Post No. : 15060

Welcome all to this post of today!!!

Today 5th June is the ‘World Environment Day’ which is celebrated all over the world on 5th June every year. Since 2017, we are trying to connect us with this celebration by posting a song on the blog which comes closer to the theme of the ‘World Environment Day’ of that year. Though, it is more or less difficult that we find any direct song relevant to the theme or subject, our endeavour here is to connect with those songs wherein we have ‘nature-connection’ in them or songs about nature symbols.

Nature, natural environment and nature symbols are very much an integral part of many of Hindi movie songs and where we attach ourselves with different types of feelings and emotions. Some of the greatest songs from Hindi movies comes from these types of songs too.

Also, I would like to mention here that off late we have some Hindi movies coming with the subjects related to pollution, climate change etc. and the general concern towards environment is being highlighted to make people more aware about the environmental related issues.

On the growing pollution and climate change I have written few lines ‘‘आबोहवा’ बदल गयी हैं! ( The ‘Climate’ is ‘changing’ ) six years back. I am reproducing below few lines from it;

फिजां कि बाहों में
अनगिनत जहरीलें ‘वायु’
आज घुल रहे
के हवा भी ‘रंग बदलने’ लगी हैं

This year’s environment day theme is Air Pollution#!!!

It will also be interesting to see how the yearly ‘themes’ of the ‘World Environment Day’ have been since its inception in 1974, and how due to the increasing pollution and effects of climate change we have reached a stage of ‘do or die’ and so the themes are also reflecting it like last year it was ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’ and this year it is ‘Air Pollution’ and the call is to ‘Beat Air Pollution’.

‘Air’ (Vayu, Pawan, Hawaa) as we know is the source of life, we cannot breathe and be alive if there is no ‘air’. ‘Air’ like the other natural resources is ‘God’s gift’ to human kind. If we go the dictionary meaning of air it reads ‘the invisible gaseous substance surrounding the earth, a mixture mainly of oxygen and nitrogen’.  So, may be what we are connecting with in our Hindi movie songs is its various forms i.e. wind, breeze etc.

And though ‘air, wind, breeze’ might be invisible we have a very strong bond with it and in our HFM songs our poets/lyricists have taken liberties to establish a strong relationship with it.

So, we have Gulzar Saab in his own philosophical style saying ‘Hawaaon Pe Likh Do Hawaaon Ke Naam, Hum Anjaan Pardesiyon Ka Salaam’.

When we are in upbeat mood and we have the ‘air in our favour’ we even start imagining that the ‘air’ is ‘singing’ and awakening our dreams … ‘Jhukti Ghataa Gaati Hawaa Sapne Jagaaye’.

And I think that songs like ‘Hawaa Mein Udtaa Jaaye Mora Laal Dupatta Malmal Ka Ho Ji’, ‘Thhandi Hawaa Kaali Ghataa Aa Hi Gayi Jhoomke’, ‘Pawan Deewani’, should fall in this category. . .

Even the wind when it is blowing in its full glory can remind us of someone, someone close or beloved to us …‘Jhoomti Chali Hawaa Yaad Aa Gaya Koyi’

In our movies we have plenty of songs for lovers and of their feelings and emotions, even sometimes they share their secret to the ‘cold breeze’ and invite it to listen to their lovely talks J ‘Sun Ja Aa Thhandi Hawaa’ and also reminding it that it should not be disclosed to anyone other than them. . .

Or somebody separated from his or her beloved can vent his/her feelings in ‘Ye Hawaa Ye Hawaa Ye Hawaa, ‘In Hawaaon Mein In Fizaaon Mein etc.

Actually, for those who are in love we have many many songs for the lovers on either side (male, female 🙂 ), for all types of their moods and emotions depending on the circumstances they are in; ‘Hawaa Ke Saath Saath Ghataa Ke Sang Sang, ‘Sabaa Se Ye Keh Do Ke Kaliyaan Bichhaaye, ‘Thhandi Hawaaein Lehraa Ke Aayen, ‘Ye Hawaa Ye Nadi Ka Kinaara’, ‘Ye Raatein Ye Mausam Nadi Ka Kinaara Ye Chanchal Hawaa, ‘Ye Hawaa Ye Raat Ye Chaandni, ‘Balmaa Khuli Hawaa Mein, ‘Seeli Hawaa Chhoo Gayi’, ‘Saawan Ka Maheena Pawan Kare Sor etc.

Someone alone can even see a true friend and companion in the ‘breeze’ and sing ‘Sun Ri Pawan Pawan Purvaiyya,

We have songs where an individual is thinking of himself as form of ‘blowing wind’ ‘Main Hoon Ek Hawaa Ka Jhonka, ‘Main Jhonka Mast Hawaa Ka’, ‘. . .Ban Ke Hawaa Ka Jhonka, Main Nikal Jaaunga. . .‘. 

We even proudly speak of the eastern winds blowing in our country when we sing ‘Mere Desh Mein Pawan Chaley Purwaayi’, or when we speak about our revered river Ganga – ‘Machalti Huyi Hawaa Mein Chham Chham Hamaare Sang Sang Chaley Ganga Ki Lehren’,

And then we have some semi-philosophical songs like ‘Ae Ri Pawan Dhoondhe Kise Tera Mann’, ‘Thhandi Hawaa Ye Chaandni Suhaani Aye Mere Dil Sunaa Koi Kahaani’, ‘Chaley Pawan Ki Chaal’, or when we have turbulence in society our poets penned their thoughts by writing like ‘Aaj Hawaaon Mein Bhi Zehar Hai’ and looking for the ‘winds of change’ in the society.

And some of longing for the ‘. . .Fursat Ke Raat Din’ cannot forget ‘Ya Garmiyon Ki Raat Jo Purwaayiyaan Chalen’. . .

I would also like to mention here these songs ‘O Basanti Pawan Paagal’, and ‘O Pawan Veg Se Udne Waale Ghode , where the ‘pawan’ is invoked with special purpose and to relate ‘speed’ respectively.

Finally, coming to one of the best ‘lullaby songs’ and my favourites in this genre, where a mother is requesting the ‘wind’ or ‘hawaa’ to flow slowly as her child is sleeping … ‘Nanhi Kali Sone Chali Hawaa Dheere Aana’, or even take this lullaby for their male counterparts 🙂  respectively – ‘O Ri Hawaa Dheere Se Chal Sotaa Hai Munna Hamaara’.

And after a sound night sleep the ‘air’ can elevate our mood when we wake up next morning by singing a beautiful ‘prabhaati’ – Hawaa Ye Prabhati Sunaaye

There may be many other songs which I may not have mentioned above and still could be very much relevant to the subject, but then we have to stop, think, ponder and enjoy the today’s song too …

But before that, when we thank God for his bountiful gift to us and this beautiful nature we have to keep asking and seeking answer for ‘Hawaa Chale Jaisebecause He is the creator who only has the answer 🙂 .

For today’s post I am sharing a Non-Filmy song from the album ‘Karadi Katha – Bandar Bindaas Bandar’.

This album was published by ‘Times Music’ in the year 2000 and which I added to my collection on 11.06.2000 (the day 11th June being a special one for us). We were staying at Bareilly then.

This album, though having all children songs, is one of my all-time favourite albums because all the lyrics for this album are penned by Gulzar Saab. Music is composed by ‘3 Brothers & A Violin’.

The list of singers includes some of our greatest singers, lending their voices to the songs in this album – we have Anuradha Sriram, Aditya Narayan, Bhupinder Singh, Hamsika Kishore, Manna Dey, Sanjeevani Bhelande, Shankar Mahadevan, SP Balsubramanyam, Udit Narayan, and child artists Madhumita Birukar, Sneha Tatapudy, Sruthi Sundaram, Sumitra Tatapudy, Vallari Shah and Vidya Sundaram as singers.

Gulzar Saab has given a brief narration before each song and that is just fascinating and it takes us to an altogether different land of animals and forests. And come to think of ‘pure air’, now the forests are the only place remaining where we can get ‘air’ in its pure, clean and natural form (if I am correct). . .

Today’s song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan and child artists have provided the chorus.

(When I was looking for a song for this post and asked suggestions from my family members, the suggestion for this song came from younger daughter and I immediately decided to pick this song for this today’s post)

Let us now enjoy this beautiful song and enjoy the ‘gifts of nature’ and let us take care & control of our ‘emissions’ and ‘pollutants’, and let us pray that we have a ‘natural, pure, hygienic and pollution free’ – ‘Air’ in the future for all of us and the generations coming…


Song – Shabnami Si Hawa Hai, Ud Ke Dekhen To Kya Hai (NFS – Shankar Mahadevn) (2000) Singer – Shankar Mahadevan, Lyrics – Gulzar, MD – 3 Brothers & A Violin
Chorus

Lyrics

(Narration by Gulzar Saab)

Jungle mein bhi aise hi mausam aate hai jaise sheharon mein. Sheharon mein monsoon aata hai, baarish hoti hai to aap log rain-coat pahan lete hai. Jaanwar nahin pahante. Jo darte hai chhup jaate hai gufaaon mein. Aur jinhe achchhi lagti hai baarish, wo baahar aakar khelne lagte hai.
Koyal chahakne lagti hai, papeeha pihu-pihu karne lagta hai.
Garmiyon mein nadi sukhne lagti hai. To unhe paani ki taqleef to hoti hai. Nal to hai nahin ki kholen. Bathroom bhi nahin hai. Nadi sukhi ho to kayi kayi din nahaate bhi nahin. Phir patjhad aa jaati hai, patte girne lagte hai, ped sukh jaate hai, aur baithhne ke liye chhaaon bhi nahin milti unhe.
Phir bahaar aati hai. Sarson phoolti hai. Titliyaan udne lagti hai. Bulbul bolne lagti hai. Mujhe to jungle ke saare mausam achchhe lagte hai.

Lekin sabse achchha lagta hai bahaar ka mausam. Seeli seeli ghaas par shabnami si hawaa, jab udti hai to waah kya baat hai

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapvaala)

(गुलज़ार द्वारा कथन –

“जंगल में भी ऐसे ही मौसम आते है जैसे शहरों में. शहरों में मानसून आता है, बारिश होती है तो आप लोग रेन-कोट पहन लेते है. जानवर नहीं पहनते. जो डरते है छुप जाते है गुफाओं में. और जिन्हें अच्छी लगती है बारिश, वो बाहर आकर खेलने लगते है.
कोयल चहकने लगती है, पपीहा पिहू-पिहू करने लगता है.
गर्मियों में नदी सूखने लगती है. तो उन्हें पानी कि तकलीफ तो होती है. नल तो है नहीं के खोलें.
बाथरूम भी नहीं है. नदी सुखी हो तो कई कई दिन नहाते भी नहीं.
फिर पतझड़ आ जाती है, पत्ते गिरने लगते है, पेड़ सुख जाते है, और बैठने के लिए छाँव भी नहीं मिलती उन्हें.
फिर बहार आती है. सरसों फूलती है. तितलियाँ उड़ने लगती है. बुलबुल बोलने लगती है. मुझे तो जंगल के सारे मौसम अच्छे लगते है.

लेकिन सबसे अच्छा लगता है बहार का मौसम. सिली सिली घास पर शबनमी सी हवा, जब उडती है तो वाह, क्या बात है. . . )

Blog Day : 3963 Post No. : 15041

It is human nature that on every important occasion and event in life, we recall all the people who had ever crossed our lives and made a difference to it. I had a similar experience during the last year. I felt like I wanted to get in touch with people from way back as far as my childhood. I met people who were our neighbours when my daughter was born. I wanted to invite all those who knew her when she was very little and had showered prayers on her when she was not even aware of those blessings. Sometimes we lose touch with people as they move away or we move away. People who were neighbours and our kids used to play together. All of them had touched our lives, affected us in a good or bad way. Mostly in the essential goodness of human nature it was well intentioned.

For us working women, there is this space in the heart for those who looked after our children when we are away at work. Some such people, neighbour and acquaintances, I was able to contact and invite for the wedding. One of such who were neighbour of my parents and distantly related to my father, attended my daughter’s wedding with her extended family. Sometimes the bonds of shared memories and events in life transcend all constraints of time and distance. When that aunty came on stage to meet the bride and groom, that moment the day of my daughter’s birth flashed in my eyes.

Early in the morning that day the aunty was there to see us off when I was leaving for the hospital. Later on my daughter was born in caesarean section. That evening she came to see us in the hospital. I remembered talking to her about my daughter and the scary experience when the doctor told us that she cannot find the baby’s heartbeat which resulted in caesarean section. I started crying and she also started crying and comforting me. I also remember telling her that all I want from the Almighty now is that “mere bachche ka naseeb achha ho”.

A few weeks after the delivery I had high fever and suffered an epileptic fit. My daughter was a few weeks old, and my mother who had not seen anything like this thought I was dead. She says she kept looking at me and my daughter and wailing. Thankfully, I survived the fit with the timely help of doctors in the neighbourhood and basic first aid given by neighbours. Even during this time this aunty and her family was there on hand to lend a helping hand any which way.

Actually, the above memories had a trigger. I had a five day training schedule in the second week of April. During the training we were made to listen to all the same routine work procedure, rules and regulations, which we have been finding, using and following since day one 🙂 . Actually these procedures are all basically based on common sense and logic, I feel. Difficulty comes when something out of the ordinary crops up then we have the facility of looking up in the proper book and finding the instructions to deal with the situation in the appropriate manner.

During the training one day, a fellow participant suffered an epileptic fit, while the session was going on. A friend of her said that it happens to her from time to time. With the first aid, which thankfully some ladies knew, she was all right after a while. But all this reminded me to my experience of which I personally have no recollection. I know only what I was told afterwards. Seeing it happening to another person is actually more scaring.

The training got over on Friday just in time to enable me and my husband to leave for the trip to Rajasthan as planned on the Saturday. Since this was a first time for us, we had a lot to cover, see and enjoy in one week. It was not enough certainly with so many placed to see. We managed to see quite enough to want do the touristy thing again sometime and see the rest of the places. With so many historical places, forts, palaces and museums etc. it really is the tourists delight as Avinash ji has said in his post – “Mhaare Rajasthan Maa. . .“. I was really delighted to see the various red stone carved palaces and embellishments and some of those inlay work in ‘Sang-e-marmar’ is also visible in places. I have not seen too many such historical places so far, but I was able to detect some superimposition inside the monuments and outside the museum or palace areas. Sadly that is modernity or commercialisation for you. There is an influx of shops and touristy restaurants too, which might be commercial necessity for all I know.

You see the historical monuments are not humans and have no sense of self preservation. From what I learnt most of those places are private property and the owners are free to utilise them. The most well preserved buildings have been converted to star hotels. Good for them as they become commercially viable and will survive longer. At least the superbly carved Mehrangad Fort is a World Heritage site and deservedly.

In a palace shop in Rajasthan I saw a bottled ‘Mitti Ki Khushboo’ fragrance. ‘Mitti ki khusbhboo’ bottled and patented:) . I heard a guide saying that ‘when the first rain drops fall on the earth, this is that mehek”. Indeed…. we should get ‘Shameem’ also in the bottle one day I hope. After all hopes and aspirations are totally free of cost.

Since the day this trip was planned and looked like it will finally happen, I have been remembering the song – “Nainon Mein Badra Chhaaye“.

Without actually going to Udaipur it is possible to visualise it through these songs. I came back from the place humming this song. The panorama surrounding the lake still looks exactly the same as is seen in the song. That is something at least. Since than I have found another song from ‘Mera Saaya’ (1966) – “Nainon Waali Ne Haaye Mera Dil Loota” featuring the scenes of Lake Pichchola of Udaipur. This is no exaggeration, the lakes and surrounding Aravali range is real beautiful site.

I found a song which is like revisiting the places /forts and music and sounds of Rajasthan in the film ‘Ham Dil De Chuke Sanam’ (1999). The majestic Mehrangadh fort is visible in some frames in the song. This amalgamation of folk and classical music is composed by Ismail Darbar and lyricists is Mehboob. The singers are Ustad Sultan Khan, Shankar Mahadevan and Kavita Krishnamoorthy. Quite a ‘bhaari bharkam’ trio what with the heavy voices and names :). In the video of the extended song many members of the cast are seen, notably the late Zohra Sehgal. Vikram Gokhle, Salman Khan and Aishwarya are singing it on screen.

Last word: What I brought back from Rajasthan is the sights and sounds of the locals talent and motivated enough in preserving the originality of the folk music and songs. I want to write more about Rajasthan, but this post is quite long now, so will keep the rest of my thoughts for some other post.

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is so heartening to see our beloved blog reaching yet another big milestone of 15000 songs being posted! Over a decade plus of hard work by all involved has made this possible but above all it has been Atul ji’s steadfast disciplined hard work which has led to it. I first of all congratulate him for this achievement. Your dedication, hard work and encouragement is always inspiring us. I have run out of hats to raise for all the wonderful work you have been doing here on this blog. May God always bless you and give you strength to achieve all your goals in your personal and official life.

I also wish to thank all the other contributors who have all become my friends during the journey of this blog. It has been a pleasure knowing you and Its always enjoyable meeting all of you. I think we should celebrate soon with a celebratory party Hangout (online or offline) with all of us meeting in spite of the time zone differences which separate us but love for music at the end of the day never fails to join us. Keep smiling always and be ever happy all of you!

For today’s song post I have chosen a song I was in love with when the movie released. This movie had some lovely songs under the baton of ace composers Jatin-Lalit and it makes its debut on the blog with this song. The movie was directed by a favourite director of mine, Kundan Shah whose film ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ (1983) is a delightful watch for all avid movie lovers even today years after its release (I shudder to hear talks of it being remade. Classics should be best left untouched. ‘Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai’ (1980) was touched just last week and all critics unanimously agree it was best left untouched). The movie’s name of course is ‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’ which was a 1994 release. Many big names and soon to be big names participated in this delightful movie whose main details are as given below:-

Movie: Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa (1994)
Director: Kundan Shah
Starcast: Shahrukh Khan, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Deepak Tijori, Rita Bhaduri, Satish Shah, Anjan Srivastav, Goga Kapoor, Tiku Talsania, Ravi Baswani, Naseeruddin Shah, Juhi Chawla
Producer: Vikram Mehrohtra
Banner: Shemaroo Video Pvt Ltd
Release Date: February 25th 1994

This is how Wikipedia describes the movie:-

‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’ (lit. Sometimes yes, Sometimes no) is a  1994 Indian Hindi romantic coming-of-age comedy film directed by Kundan Shah and starring Shah Rukh Khan, Suchitra Krishnamurthy, Deepak Tijori and Naseeruddin Shah. This is one of the rare mainstream Hindi movies in which the hero plays the role of a loser. It is widely considered to be one of Shah Rukh Khan’s best performances, and he has said that it is his favourite film. He received the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance for his role. Produced on a budget of ₹1.4 crore, the film grossed ₹5.5 crore, equivalent to ₹84 crore (US$12 million) adjusted for inflation. At the 39th Filmfare Awards, it won the Critics Award for Best Film and the Critics Award for Best Actor for Shah Rukh Khan, who also won the Best Actor award for ‘Baazigar’ (1993) at the same ceremony.

I still remember seeing this slice of life movie in a theatre. I was now old enough to go to a theatre by myself and I made the most of the period watching many of the good movies of the period. In spite of the movie being released during exam times, my parents permitted me to watch it and I enjoyed watching it. All the actors in the movie had done really good roles. Suchitra Krishnamurthy had made her acting debut with the movie. Many critics didn’t like her acting but I felt she tried her best giving a genuineness to the performance. She didn’t appear in much movies due to her personal life decisions but I have liked the few and far between movies she did. During the pop boom, she had done a handful of albums too whose cassettes I have enjoyed in those days. ‘Dole Dole’ was a particular favourite with me. Deepak Tijori who was the other lead also did a wonderful role. He was a competent actor and I feel its sad that we have not been able to see much of him for many years. He’s been more active in the field of direction though. As it is I love movies set in Goa and have thoroughly enjoyed movies set there.

Not many may be knowing that this movie was also remade in Telugu by the name Swapnalokam (1999) starring Jagapathi Babu.

Here is the plot of the movie:-

Sunil (Shah Rukh Khan) is woken up from his dream of marrying the girl he loves, Anna (Suchitra Krishnamurthy), by Sunil’s sister (Sadiya Siddiqui). Sunil is a happy-go-lucky scamp who loves music and is not interested in studies, which bothers his father, Vinayak (Anjan Srivastav). Sunil, Anna, and Chris (Deepak Tijori) are 3 members of a 6-person music band, who are looking to make it big. Anna rejoins the group after being away for a while, which makes Chris happy too, as he too loves Anna. After Anna reenters his life, Sunil begins to try and change his ways in order to get Anna to fall in love with him.

During a performance at a friend’s wedding, Sunil realizes that Anna and Chris have some chemistry between them. Sunil is devastated, so he decides to create a rift between Anna and Chris. Sunil eventually gets caught in his own web of lies. Anna, furious with Sunil for such a betrayal, slaps him and decides to never talk to Sunil ever after. Sunil is thrown out of the band for being a miscreant. However, as luck were to have it, fortune favours Sunil who saves the band from being heckled at a local club performance by putting on a stellar show, so the entire band forgives and forgets.

Meanwhile, Anna’s father has been giving thought to getting her settled in life and decides that Chris is worthy of the honour. He makes his intentions known to approach Chris’ parents with a proposal. However, Chris’ parents have other ideas and decide Chris’ marriage to their friend’s daughter. Anna and her family are dejected.

Sunil consoles Anna during this time and the tide slowly turns in his favour. Anna’s father, having realized that Sunil will love and take care of Anna, convinces Anna to marry Sunil. Sunil is overjoyed until he realizes Anna still loves Chris. Sunil decides to reunite the two and get them married. On the wedding day, as Chris and Anna are about to exchange rings, Chris’ ring slips out of his hand and rolls out of sight. Everybody starts searching for it. Sunil spots the ring but feigns ignorance, even as his younger sister gazes at him with a heavy heart. Eventually, Chris locates the ring and the couple gets married.

Just after the wedding, Sunil is shown sitting on the sidewalk, dejected and heartbroken. By happenstance, a random girl (Juhi Chawla in a guest appearance), who is lost and is seeking directions, approaches Sunil. Sometime later, Sunil and the girl are seen walking in the moonlight and talking merrily.

Anthony and Vasco, two criminals who are a part of the story, see Sunil with the new girl and break the fourth wall, saying that Sunil will be alright. The criminals hear the police siren and immediately scamper away as the credits roll.

If you’ve not watched the movie yet, do catch this feel good movie. It had some of the best performances and the late Renu Saluja had also edited it well. I heard sometime back that Shah Rukh Khan has bought the rights of the movie. Don’t know if he’s planning to remake it but its definitely one of his best and sincere performances. The movie was a sleeper hit and made more than double (nearly 5.5 crores) on the box office in those days.

The song’s lyrics have been very thoughtfully written by Majrooh Sultanpuri sahib and sung lovingly by the flavour of those days, Kumar Sanu. The combination of Majrooh Sahib with Jatin-Lalit was one of the top combinations for me in the 1990s. Just like the song, I pray that we never wake up from the suroor of good music we all live in all the time and keep singing songs of our love for music as well as each other.

Song – Ae Kaash Ke Ab Hosh Mein Hum Aane Na Paayen (Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa) (1994) Singer – Kumar Sanu, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Jatin Lalit

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 27
————————————————

Welcome all to today’s(6 april 2019) post in the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge Series’. The song I am going to present today is, by the standards of the blog, from a very recent movie ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’. And this is the movie falling under ‘Blog 10-year challenge’ today on 06.04.20019.

On this day ten years ago (viz on 6 april 2009), Songs of following movies were posted on the blog:-

‘Raja Hindustani-1996’
‘Jawaan Mohabbat-1971’
‘Bin Baadal Barsaat-1963’
‘Baap Bete-1959’
‘Chhaliya-1960’
‘Chaand-1959’

All these movies except ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ have already achieved ‘Yippeeee’ed’ status on the blog. 🙂

If one look back at the years that have passed by after this movie ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ was released, almost ‘twenty-three’ years have elapsed since. Many things have happened during these twenty-three years in my life. I have been through many changes and shifting of places in my personal life during all these years.

My last post was about my stay at Kota-Rajasthan and my fond memories of that stay. My parents were staying at Parli Vaijnath at that time and my journey to home took thirty-six hours consisting of of train-bus-travel and transit time. The route I would take was Kota to Ratlam by broad gauge train. Ratlam to Purna junction or Indore junction, Indore to Akola and Akola to Parli Vaijnath by bus or Purna to Parli Vaijnath by train of South-Central railway.

Once I had even travelled the complete route by Bus. I travelled from Parli Vaijnath to Akola (seven hours). From Akola I took State Transport Bus for Indore (fourteen hours) and from Indore to Kota another state transport Bus (of MP) travelling almost eight hours.

I was a bachelor then. However, this travel and the journeys continued after my marriage and after having two daughters.

I was still at Kota Site when I got married. So, after that my wife was my co-traveller (:) ) and sometimes we were accompanied by my younger brother or my Father to support us in carrying our luggage. My elder daughter became a new member in our travelling team after her birth. In between my wife was alternatively staying with me for few months and them with my parents at Parli Vaijnath.

Finally, the project at Kota was completed in 1996 and I left for Phulpur-Allahabad leaving my family at Parli Vaijnath.

I reached Phulpur on 15th August 1996 and started there process of settling down there and began looking for a family accommodation so that I could bring my family to stay with me.

I was also doing my graduation through an ‘open university (IGNOU)’ then and did not want to change my study centre Kota. The next examinations were falling due in December and for that I was supposed to travel to Kota again. I attended my exams and took the same route to home via Indore. The Indore connection was important because I had my friends there whose friendship was cultivated by me during my stay at Kota as they were working there for a company from Indore.

I would meet my friends of Indore and spend some time with them. I often stayed at Indore for few days, visited nearby places of interests (tourists places) , some famous temples and watched a few movies also (and that might be a subject of an article in future 🙂 ) But this time, my plan was to visit Kota for my examinations and from there to go to Parli Vaijnath via Indore.

I took a luxury bus from Indore to Akola. This bus had video facility. Those were the days when many people among such bus travellers were quite keen to watch movies in Bus and they would even argue with the transporters if the video was not working. I was more interested in sleeping which was much needed for me because of the previous equally gruelling travel by road.

That day (or rather night) they played two movies back to back. One was ‘Ghatak-1996’ and other was ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’. I watched some parts of these moving in my half-sleep half-awoke state. I liked some songs and some part of both movies. I don’t think I got to watch this movie ‘Raja Hindustani’ again though I recall having watched ‘Ghatak’ again sometime later.

Both the movies were highly successful at the box-office and their music particularly of ‘Raja Hindustani’ was very popular. Both movies earned award nominations and won some of these awards as well.

‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ was directed by Dharmesh Darshan for ‘Cineyug’. It was produced by Alive Morani, Karim Morani and Bunty Soorma. It had Amir Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Suresh Oberoi, Johny Level, Navneet Nishan, Veeru Krishnan, Kunal Khemu (child artist then), Pramod Moutho, Mohnish Behl, Tiku Talsania, Farida Jalal and Archana Puran Singh.

Story of this movie was written by Dharmesh Darshan. And he was co-author in writing the dialogues of this movie alongwith Javed Siddiqui.Editing of this movie was done by Bharat.

Lyrics of this movie were written by Sameer. And as per Wikipedia this movie had total eight songs including two multiple version song (where one song was having three versions).

Music of this movie was composed by Nadeem-Shravan. Whereas the background music was given by Surinder Sodhi.
Alka Yagnik, Alisha Chinai, Bela Sulakhe, Kumar Sanu, Sapna Awasthi, Sapna Mukherjee, Suresh Wadkar and Udit Narayan have given their voices to the songs of this movie.

‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ was released (as per ‘wiki’) on 15th November’1996.

This movie had some very good soundtracks and as mentioned by Atul ji while posting the first song of the movie Aaye ho meri zindagi me tum bahaar banke
, couple of them were reminiscent of the music of the seventies.

When I noted that this movie was eligible for ‘ten-year challenge’, I promptly decided to take up the ‘challenge’. 🙂 I noted that this song has a female version to, and so it was a ‘multiple version’ song. I am sending our editors the lyrics for the female version of this song and requesting them to update the same in the post of this song.

Personally, I like this song Aaye ho meri zindagi me tum bahaar banke (both versions) very much. After watching this movie on that bus journey, this song was playing in my mind for the next few days. Another song “Kitna pyaara tujhe rab ne banaaya” was also very good.

And what to say about the song under discussion ! It was an enormous hit. This song was the highlight of the movie for many people.

The movie was inspired by ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile-1965’. If that 1965 movie had a “pardesi” song viz ‘pardesiyon se ankhiyaan milaana’, then ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ had ‘its own “pardesi” song, viz Pardesi Pardesi Jaana Nahin’- which is the song under discussion.

The ‘pardesi’ song from ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’ was a multiple version song having three versions. Not to be left behind, this “Raja Hinustani” song also has three versions. This song plays important role in taking the story of the movie forward. Like when heroine’s father comes to know about his daughter falling in love with a taxi driver, then – when the hero-heroine are separated due to misunderstanding , with heroine’s stepmother sowing seeds of ‘conflict’ further and heroine is also pregnant at this time, and finally third time – in the end when all ends well and the hero and heroine are re-united.

During all those years I had forgotten that this song was a multiple version song with three versions, and the ‘challenge’ hence got compounded for me. I had to listen to this song many times during its drafting. Also, with the female version to the earlier song added this post serve a purpose of ‘four songs’ “)

In the Suresh Wadkar version of ‘pardesi pardesi jaana nahin’ the hero sings couple of lines which in one version is lip synced by the hero and in another version he lip-syncs in Udit Narayan’s voice. Credit for this third version also mentioned the name of Udit Narayan (as taken from ‘wiki’ page of this movie), I think that is correct. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this and correct please.

With today’s song on the blog plus addition of the female version to the earlier song this movie ‘Raja Hindustani’ will have its five songs covered on the blog.

I know you are eager to listen this song again after so many years so without taking this article too long I am taking you to the song instead which itself is like an ‘epic song’. 🙂

To finish the tale, after reaching Parli Vaijnath, I travelled back to Phulpur, with my wife and daughter accompanying me, with my father also travelling with us to help us in getting settled at Phulpur.

We stayed at Phulpur for a few months, before it was time for my wife to rejoin my parents at Parli Vaijnath in what could be described as a “Pardesi pardesi jaana nahin” situation for me. 🙂

The first part of the song is sung by Sapna Awasthi (lip syncing by Kalpana Iyer), Alka Yagnik (for Pratibha Sinha) and Udit Narayan (lip synced by Aamir Khan).
Second version is sung by Kumar Sanu (on Aamir Khan) and Alka Yagnik (on Karishna Kapoor).
The movie ending third version is sung by Suresh Wadkar (for Johny Lever), Bela Sulakhe (for Navneet Nishan) and Udit Narayan (for Aamir Khan).

Let us now enjoy this wonderful, entertaining and rocking melodious 🙂 song.

Hullo Atuldom

Happy Holi!

Some movies have a lot of memories attached to them. Yash Chopra’s “Chaandni” is one such movie. The year was 1989 and I had been to Mumbai (maayka) for my delivery. So, I had a lot of free time when I could interact with all my friends and neighbours like never before (and never have I had a similar opportunity too) 😉 that made that visit to Mumbai special. For those Atulites who know me- I had shifted out of Mumbai post marriage and so the term “visit to Mumbai”.

Getting back to “Chaandni” – those were the days when there were VCRs in many home and people used to rent Video Cassettes of movies which they couldn’t see in the theatres. I have seen a few movies in that way in the company of my neighbour’s family and more importantly their son. Their son was a year or two older to me so he was a mentor, guide, friend, idol and so many other things for me. To start off (as was the norm in those times) he was my Rakhi bro but we had a different equation between the two of us. He being my idol – I started liking Rekha- his favourite and he, on his part, made an effort to like Amitabh because he doted on me. Whatever love I have for physics, all branches of mathematics, and history is because I followed his way of studying them.

Oh, I again went away from Chaandni- so “Parinda” and “Chaandni” were the two movies the two of us saw back-to-back. “Chaandni” was a typical triangular love story. To start of it is a simple love story where the girl- Chaandni (Sridevi)- is wooed not-so-easily by the guy- Rohit (Rishi Kapoor). But the guys’ family has an issue with the alliance but accept it because their ‘only’ son is adamant. They go ahead have an engagement etc. But unfortunately, Rohit meets with an accident and is bound to a wheel chair. His family decides that this is the best time to humiliate the girl and so Rohit is forced to break-off the engagement so that the girl doesn’t have to face his family’s behaviour.

Now what does the girl do? She leaves Delhi, comes to Mumbai and lands a job in Lalit’s (Vinod Khanna) office. He is already pining for his dead wife when he falls in love with her, she takes some time to reciprocate though she is always civil to him and his mother. The next twist in the story comes when Lalit meets Rohit in Switzerland, where he has gone for business and Rohit has come for treatment. They become friends and decide that on returning to India they will introduce their respective girl friends and also marry on the same day etc. Isn’t that enough to twist the story further and make it a triangle?

As for the songs posted on the blog this date in 2009 – here they are

Lagi aaj saawan ki phir wo jhadi hai (Chaandni)(1989) 944 21-Nar-2009

This will be the 7th song from “Chaandni” which had Shiv-Hari as music directors and Anand Bakshi as lyricist. I cannot keep myself from saying: Sridevi looks so pretty and baby-like in this song, actually she looks like a baby through the movie. This song is shot on the streets of Delhi or New Delhi. I would like it if the Dilliwale followers of the blog help in identifying the locations. It will be nice to know. 🙂

This song is also in memory of the aforementioned friend who loved to ape Rishi Kapoor and his sunglasses and sweaters. This friend was also a Dilliwala for a brief period of his life.

Lyrics

khwabon aur khayaalon ki
galiyon mein jisko dhoondha
bana tu mera

haan bani tu meri
bani main teri mehbooba
bani main teri mehbooba
bani main teri mehbooba

mehbooba

mujhko yeh parvaah nahin

ye to rab ki marzi hai

hum donon ke beech mein
ab na aaye koi dooja
bani tu meri
bani main teri
tu hi toh meri mehbooba
main hoon woh teri mehbooba
tu hi toh meri mehbooba
arre shehron mein se shehar suna
bhai shehar suna thha dilli
dilli shehar mein chaandni naam ki ladki mujhse milli
