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.

“Zid”(1994) was produced by Pannalal Mehra and directed by Esmayeel Shroff. The movie had Jay Mehta, Rageshwari, Vinita Malik, Mala Sinha, Rajeev Varma, Rakesh Bedi, Mukesh Rawal, Mahavir Shah, Mahesh Bachchan, Jayshree Arora, Dinesh Hingoo, Birbal, Anuraag, Shyam Awasthi, Prakash Thakur, Balwant Bansal, Guddi Maruti etc in it.

This movie, which has ended up becoming an obscure movie, despite being a “recent” movie by the standards of this blog, had seven songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Zid”(1994) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Md Aziz. O P Nayyar is the music director. Lyricist is not known.

Video of some songs from the movie are available. But looking at them, one can safely say that these songs are better heard than watched.

With this song, “Zid” (1994) makes its debut in the blog. This movie was chronologically the last Hindi movie for which O P Nayyar composed music. For this blog too, this is the last movie with O P Nayyar’s music that finds representation in the blog. In other words, now all movies with O P Nayyar’s music in them are represented in the blog. To put things in perspective, O P Nayyar composed music in 73 Hindi movies. Songs from all these movies are now showcased in the blog. 49 of these movies are already YIPPEED. O P Nayyar composed 569 songs in these movies. 472 of these songs are covered in the blog. So now we have 97 more songs from 24 O P Nayyar movies that are yet to be covered. It is a matter of time and hopefully we will be able to cover all the missing songs of O P Nayyar (that are available) in the blog in another one year or so.


Song-Dard e dil ki kya hai dawa (Zid)(1994) Singer-Md Aziz, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

hullo Atuldom

So, it is the new year. I have not made any resolutions, as usual, just taking life as it chooses to unfold itself. Anyway, it has always been my way of living. People who are connected with me on WhatsApp must have seen my status message- “Kal kya hoga kis ko pata” I also subscribe to the thought “abhi zindagi ka le lo mazaa”. (this is from a song by Gulshan Bawra)
My todays post is a song from the 1994 release “Aag” starring Govinda, Shilpa Shetty, Sonali Bendre (in a special appearance) with Kader Khan, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Shakti Kapoor, Goga Kapoor, Gulshan Grover, Suresh Chatwal etc. etc. in the supporting cast. This movie was directed by K. Ravi Shankar and released in August 1994. This was a change of image for Govinda in the sense that it had him play a serious character.

The story goes like this-

Orphaned at a very young age, Raju (Govinda) lives a poor lifestyle with his unmarried sister, Laxmi (Prajakta Kulkarni). Both are of marriageable age. One-day Raju meets an attractive fellow-collegian, Parul (Sonali Bendre), and after a few encounters both fall in love. But Parul’s uncle, has already arranged her marriage with Police Inspector Suryadev Singh (Shakti Kapoor). When Suryadev finds out that Parul is refusing to marry him, he arrests Raju on a charge of murder, holds him in jail, and beats him mercilessly.
Laxmi, quite dramatically, takes a gun from a policeman, and helps Raju escape so as to prevent Parul from being forcibly married to Suryadev. They do manage to arrive in time, only to find that Parul has consumed poison and killed herself. Raju is beside himself with rage, is captured by the police, and watches helplessly as Parul is cremated. His horrors have not ended as Suryadev sexually assault’s Laxmi and leaves her in a mentally unstable condition.

Raju takes Laxmi with him to a small village, where he hides her from other people as she has become visibly pregnant, and changes his name to Birju. He meets with a lovely village belle by the name of Bijli (Shilpa Shetty), who wants to marry him. What Raju does not know is that Bijli, the nautanki dancer, is a plainclothes policewoman, Inspector Barkha Sharma, who has been assigned to arrest him at any cost. She does confront him, and he confesses to killing Parul’s uncle and Barkha calls for reinforcements to escort Raju to jail. The Inspector-in-charge of the reinforcements is none other than Suryadev — and this time he is determined to finish Raju once and for all.

Now why did I pick up this movie and this particular raunchy song for posting today? Because we have our today’s birthday boy lip-syncing to singer Hariharan in it. No-no not Kader Khan, he has Sudesh Bhonsle singing for him. I am talking of Sadashiv Amrapurkar. Born on 2nd January 1950 in Ahmednagar Maharashtra he made his way to movies via theatre. His first film was Govind Nihalani’s “Ardh Satya” for which he won that year’s filmfare award for best supporting actor. In 1993 when filmfare added a category of best villain he won it for his act as “maharani” a eunuch in Mahesh Bhatt’s “Sadak”. 1993 saw him play inspector Pyare Mohan- a person who has a problem of forgetting things- in David Dhawan’s “Aankhen”. He showed he was good in comedy. Even in “Aag” along with Kader Khan he provided comic relief.

Today’s song shows how the all the gents of the village react when Bijli- the dancer- makes her entry into the village. We have Dinesh Hingoo, Suresh Chatwal and assorted villagers trying to entertain us in this song. Alka Yagnik sings for Shilpa Shetty, Sameer is the lyricist and Dilip Sen- Sameer Sen the music composers.


Song-Ye kanya kunwaari hai (Aag)(1994) Singers-Sudesh Bhonsle, Hariharan, Alka Yagnik, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Dilip Sen-Samir Sen

Even as we have been celebrating the journey of this blog over 3000 days, there has been another journey that has taken place recently.

Avinash Scrapwala, our Nagpur-based Atulite, happened to visit Bengaluru earlier this week for a short trip with his wife. If you’ve read the post , you will notice a mention of his boarding the train at Nagpur at 10:10 hrs and expecting to reach at 06:40 hrs the next morning.

Today’s song for discussion is from a film which is actually…according to some people…”out of Syllabus” for me. The film is Andaz Apna Apna – 1994 and the lovely duet is sung by Vicky Mehta and Behroze Chatterjee.

Today (5 august 2015)is the birthday of Kajol.

And I find myself writing a post on this blog for this occasion. 🙂

Of all the songs I’ve written about here, this has got to be the most recent. Most of the songs I post are from the 70s or earlier, with just the odd 1980s song.

And this one is of the 1990s.

But I want to post this for three reasons.

IN CUSTODY (1994) also known as MUHAFIZ was a film belonging to the parallel cinema based on Booker award nominated novel by the same name written by Anita Desai. The film was produced under the banner of Merchant Ivory Productions and was directed by Ismail Merchant. The star cast included Shashi Kapoor, Shabana Azmi, Om Puri, Sushma Seth, Neena Gupta, Tinnu Anand, Ajay Sahani, Prayag Raj, Virendra Saxena etc. The film picked up published nazms and ghazals of Faiz Ahmed Faiz for songs which were jointly composed by Ustad Zakir Hussain and Ustad Sultan Khan. I had set out in detail the story of the film while discussing ae jazba-e-dil gar main chaahoon. For the sake of the background, I will give here only a gist of the story of the film.

The 3rd death anniversary of Ghazal King Jagjit Singh was on October 1Oth and the 76th birth day of Urdu poet and lyricist Nida Fazli was on October 12th. For the occasions, I had planned to write a combined post and had selected a song months back to be posted on the Blog in October 1Oth or 12th. But some other activities relating to travels and pre Deewali atmosphere in my house resulted in diversion of my mind and in the process, I completely forgot about writing the article for the occasion. It was only when I saw a post on the occasion of the birthday of Nida Fazli that I got reminded of my pending article. Even though anniversary dates have passed, it is never late for paying tributes.
