Sai Paranjpye has so far directed 8 feature films in Hindi. She has written story and script for all these films. Each of these films has some interesting background as to what prompted her to make those films. In this article, I am covering her film ‘Saaz’ (1997) which was produced by Amit Khanna under the banner ‘Pulse Films’ of the Plus Channel of which he was the managing director during 1989-2000.

Sometime in 1995-96, Plus Channel decided to produce some ‘middle-of-the-road’ films. Directors like Shyam Bengal, Basu Chatterjee, Sudhir Mishra, Aruna Raje, Gautam Ghosh and Sai Paranjpye were enlisted to direct  such genre of films which resulted in the release of films, ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996), ‘Gudgudee’ (1997), ‘Is Raat Ki Subah Nahi’ (1996), ‘Bhairavi’ (1996), ‘Gudia’ (1997) and ‘Saaz’ (1997), respectively.

Shabana Azmi had worked with Sai Paranjpye in ‘Sparsh’ (1980) and ‘Disha’ (1990). As per Sai Paranjpye’s Marathi book, ‘Sai – Maaza Kalapravaas’ (2016), one day Shabana came to her with a proposal on behalf of Plus Channel to direct a film with a woman-oriented story in which she would like to work. Sai Paranjpye accepted the proposal. The subject of sibling rivalry in the professional fields had attracted Sai Paranjpye but she had not thought of making a film on the subject. With this proposal, she thought as to why not make a film on sibling rivalry.

We are aware that there have been many instances of sibling rivalries – be in epics, history, business, media, industrial houses etc in India where there was thin line of difference between the professional and personal rivalries. According to Sai Paranjapye, sibling rivalry of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle is unique in the sense that their personal relationship by and large has remained intact over the years in the midst of their professional rivalry. And Sai Paranjpye wanted to bring this uniqueness in the film.

When Sai Paranjpye worked on the script of the film, she realised that the film was leaning towards making of a biopic on Asha Bhosle. She felt uncomfortable to make a film on such a script involving the personal lives of the siblings. Furthermore, she has no acquaintance with both the sisters.  The idea of making a film depicting Asha Bhosle was, therefore, dropped. However, in the revised script, the main theme of two playback singing sisters were kept in mind with some twists in the stories just to segregate her story from the real life story of Lata and Asha Bhosle. However, a couple of events which actually happened during the lives of  Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar were incorporated as they were in the public domain, written by those who had witness those events.

The star cast of ‘Saaz’ (1997) included Shabana Azmi, Aruna Irani, Parikshit Sahani, Raghuveer Yadav, Ayesha Dharker, Zakir Hussain, Amar Talwar, Brijbhushan Sahani, Bhupen Hazarika etc. The story, script and dialogues were written by Sai Paranjpye who also directed the film. The film was mostly shot around Mumbai. Some last part of the film were shot in Seychelles.

The film was certified by the Censor Board on 31-12-1996. But film failed to get release in theaters. The reason is stated to be the ban put by the Theater Owners Association on the exhibition of films produced by Plus Films due to the non-payment of arrears of rent from Plus Channel to some theater owners. I am not aware whether the film was released in the theater after this ban. Probably, the film got released later on TV.  It was only after reading some parts of the script of the film published verbatim in Sai Paranjpye’s Marathi book referred to above that made me to watch the film. I am pleasantly surprised to note that she has handled the theme of sibling rivalry of playback singing sisters very delicately and objectively. There are some poignant moments between the two sisters which are very heart-touching.

The film’s story has been told in a flash-back mode during Bansi’s (Shabana Azmi)’s sessions with a psychiatrist played by Parikshit Sahani. She needed this treatment as she has lost the will to sing after the death of Hemang Desai (Zakir Hussain) with whom she was in love and would have married him. In all her sessions, Bansi reveals events from her childhood to playback singing career as to how she was always played second fiddle to her elder sister. How she broke the relationship with her didi for 10 years due to snatching of her chance to sing on India’s Independence Day at Delhi. But after the sudden death of her elder sister, Bansi feels guilty of depriving  her elder sister of spending time with her daughter.  Towards the end of the film, Bansi gets a good news that her daughter has won the award as a promising playback singer. This pleasant news makes Bansi to sing live in front of the audience in Seychelles. The tape of her singing is sent to psychiatrist who comes at the airport to receive her and announces that she does not need any more treatment. So his relationship with Bansi as a doctor and a patient is over. Instead, he wants now to be her friend. The films end with both them walking together out of the airport.

In my view, this film is not one of the best among the films Sai Paranjpye has directed. Probably, in trying to make the film different from that of the sibling rivalry of Lata and Asha Bhosle, too many characters were introduced. As a result, about last one hour of film does appear some disconnect from the first part of the film which has some brilliant stamp of Sai Paranjpye. However, I feel that she has succeeded in creating sympathy of the audience for the younger sister without their malice towards the elder one.

In keeping with the subject of the story, ‘Saaz’ (1997) has as many as 11 songs (including a multiple version song). Songs are written by Javed Akhtar which have been set to music by 4 music directors – Ustad Zakir Hussain, Bhupen Hazarika, Raj Kamal and Yashwant Deo. The reason given by Sai Paranjpye for multiple music directors is that since sisters are playback singers working with different music directors, the songs in the film should reflect the different style of music direction. Two of the music directors, Ustad Zakir Hussain and Bhupen Hazarika also acted as music directors in the film.

Out of the 11 songs of the film, 3 songs have been covered in the Blog, all by Peevesie’s Mom. I am presenting the 4th song from the film which is a multiple version song. The song is “Baadal Ghumad Badh Aaye”. The male version of the song is sung by Suresh Wadkar and Kavita Krishnamurthy sings the female version. Both the versions of the song are set to music by Yashwant Deo in Raag Megh-Malhar. In the credit titles of the film, only Javed Akhtar’s name appears as a lyricist. But in reality, both the versions of the song have been written by Sai Paranjpye. There is an anecdote as to why Sai Paranjpye had to write the lyrics of the song as revealed by her in her Marathi book referred to above.

Javed Akhtar has written all the songs except the one under discussion which was last to be written. Despite repeated reminder, Javed Akhtar could not write the song. Yashwant Deo who was to set the song to music had booked the recording room and taken the dates of Suresh Wadkar and Kavita Krishnamurthy. All the musicians were also booked for the date of recording. Now only two days had left for the recording of the song but both the version of song’s lyrics was not yet ready. Just one day before the song recording date, it came to light that Javed Akhtar has gone to Khandala with a film producer. The cancellation of recording of the song would have entailed a huge loss and also the shooting schedules would have been affected entailing further loss.

Yashwant Deo mentioned to Sai Paranjpye that even if he gets the song in the morning of the song recording date, he can manage somehow to complete the rehearsals and record the song at the appointed time at noon. Sai Paranjpye came home at night and completed the lyrics of two versions of the song, foregoing her sleep. In the morning, she handed over the lyrics to Yashwant Deo and recording of the songs took place as schedule.

On return from Khandala on the next day, Javed Akhtar was shocked to learn that the songs have already been recorded. He got annoyed on Sai Paranjpye.  After 3-4 days, an executive from Plus Films came to her asking for her lyrics which Javed Akhtar wanted to read. He took lyrics to Javed Akhtar. There was no further development which meant that Javed Akhtar had no issue with the lyrics. On this issue, Shabana Azmi remained neutral.

Javed Akhtar won the National Film Award for the best lyrics in ‘Saaz’ (1997).

It is not an easy task for a novice to write lyrics based on Hindustani classical raags. The choice of words shows that Sai Paranjpye has hold over Sanskritised Hindi. For the first time, I have heard the word kanakalankrit bhor (dawn of golden colour). While the male version of the song is reflective of the onset of the rains, the female version of the song signals the end of the rains and the sun is shining giving a dawn of hope. This is symbolic for the resurgence of playback singing career of Bansi (Shabana Azmi) after she lost her will to sing.

Suresh Wadkar version of the song is pictuirsed on Raghuveer Yadhav who has played the role of a father of singing sisters, Mansi and Bansi. The picturization of the song is based on a true story in the life of Dinanath Mangeshkar who had gone to the house of Vishram Bedekar (Marathi and Hindi film director) in the midnight, drenched under heavy rains to borrow money to quench his thirst for alcohol. Bedekar taunted him by saying that it did not behove well for such a great artist to beg for money. Dinanath Mangeshkar retorted by impromptu singing a bandish in Raag Megh-Malhar and after completing the bandish, he took money from Bedekar as a present for his rendering.

Enjoy both the version of the songs in the backdrop of the approaching monsoon season.

When I looked at the lyrics of this song, I quickly made some guesses about this song and its movie:-

1. This movie is directed by David Dhawan.

2. Music is by Anu Malik

3. The song is picturised as a chaalu dance song on klead pair of Govinda and Karishma Kapoor.

When I watched the picturisation and saw the details of the movie, I found that I had hit the bulls’s eye on 1 and 2. I was wrong in 3. The song was picturised not on Govinda and Karisha Kapoor but on Akshay Kumar and Juhi Chawla.

This movie was called “Mr and Mrs Khilaadi” (1997). May be I should have paid attention to the title to guess the hero. If the title had the word “Khilaadi” in it, then it used to be an Akshay Kumar starrer. If the title had the phrase “number one” in it, then that used to be Govinda starrer, duly directed by David Dhawan.

The movie “Mr and Mrs Khilaadi” (1997) was produced by Keshu Ramsey and directed by David Dhawan. The movie had Akshay Kumar, Juhi Chawla, Kader Khan, Gulshan Grover, Johny Lever, Satish Kaushik, Anjala Zaveri, Paresh Rawal, Birbal, Guddi Maruti, Mac Mohan, Himani Shivpuri, Upasna Singh, Rakesh Bedi, Anil Dhawan, Kishore Bhanushali, Jack Gaud, Raj Kishore etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. This song is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Abhijeet and P0ornima. Dev Kohli is the lyricist. The lyrics are obviously inspired from the popular political slogan of Bihar those days that was -“Jab rak rahega samose mein aalu tab tak Bihar mein rahega Laalu.”

Thankfully that politician has proved to be more fallible than the humble aalu.

One obviously watches this song and listens to it with very low expectations, and so the song turns out to be a good fun to watch and listen to. The song has somer witty lines. In adduition to aaalu and samosa, the lyrics rope in idly and dosa as well;. 🙂

The dance that the two acors are seen performing is not disco, or ramba samba or any such known dance form. It is nothing more than aerobics exercises. 🙂

Here is this fun song from “Mr and Mrs Khilaadi” (1997) first thing in the morning. Only if I could somehow get a samosa, or even idly and dosa at this time in the morning. Alas, I have to make do with just a morning cup of tea. 🙂

As valentine day party songs go, this one is not really so big on the event. Except for the heart shaped balloons, there is no other indication of this being a valentine day song. Point to be noted is that, the blog seems to have ignored this occasion also, along with a host of other days that are specifically designated throughout the year. Whatsapp university does a quite adequate job of reminding us of all these days, be it mother’s day, father’s day, couple day, hug day, chocolate day to name a few. These are just the days which came readily to mind, because a few of them were during this past week.

I remembered this song today just out of the blue from the film “Dil to paagal hai”. I remember seeing this film in theatre, must be in 1997. My elder sister was very fond of Yash Chopra films and the star cast was, as it is very much ascending stars of the era. Nevertheless I remember at one point in the film, where I told my sister that I don’t want to see this film and we are leaving. Which point I don’t care to share here.

This song talking of ‘Chaand’ & ‘Raat’ is actually compliant with my posts series titled ‘Chaandni Raatien”. Composer is Uttam Singh and the lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. It is picturized on Shah Rukh Khan, Karishma Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit. Shah Rukh and Karishma are at a Valentine Day party, whereas Madhuri Dixit is at her home, dreaming and singing along. At this point I think Shah Rukh and Madhuri haven’t met each other, but are scheduled to meet and fall in love. This song is in anticipation of the things to come in the story, because you see they have read the script and the song was ready, so the situation had to be created for it. Udit Narayan sings for Shah Rukh and Lata Mangeshkar is singing for Madhuri and Karishma both. The song is very catchy too despite being a mood song.

The film is full of melodious hit songs which were a rage then. Film and the songs won quite a few awards too. This song is having the tunes of other songs from the same film, as interlude. Again as I said the characters are anticipating the songs to feature in the film later on. Good imagination all around.

hullo to all of Atuldom

Yesterday (13 august 2019) was the birth anniversary of our dear Sridevi, hailed as the first female superstar of Bollywood. I was not liking it that we had let it go without a post. Then last thing before I switched off for the day, I saw a song on some satellite channel and had my ‘eureka’ moment. I found a song from the later period of Sridevi’s career when she had started experimenting with the characters she played.

The song was from the 1997 Raj Kanwar directed and Boney Kapoor produced “Judaai”. The movie starred Sridevi alongside Urmila Matondkar and Anil Kapoor with Kadar Khan, Johnny Lever, Farida Jalal, Upasana Singh, Junior Mehmood, Paresh Rawal, Dinesh Hingoo, Saeed Jaffrey and two sweet child actors. Poonam Dhillon had a special appearance. The movie was a remake of a 1994 Telugu film “Shubhalagnam”.

It was a story of a lady Kajal (Sridevi) who gets her honest and loving husband (Anil Kapoor) married to his boss’s niece (Urmila) in exchange for money in her quest to become rich quickly. She gets this done much against her husband’s wishes and she faces social problems when she realises that it is not possible to remain your ex-husband’s legal wife after having divorced him and practically sold him to another lady. The film received mixed reviews for its simple and clichéd plot and execution. But the performances of the lead actresses were appreciated. This was Sridevi’s last film appearance before she took a sabbatical to lead a family life. Sridevi and Johnny Lever played the children of Kadar Khan and Farida Jalal.

Incidentally today happens to be the 62nd birthday of Johnny Lever. He was brought up as John Prakash Rao Janumala. He had to drop out of studies as his family faced financial problems and he pithed in by doing odd jobs including selling pens on the streets by mimicking Bollywood stars etc. At a program in his father’s plant (Hindustan Lever Limited) he mimicked some senior officers and the workers there gave him his stage name JOHNNY LEVER. He started out his career doing stage shows Kalyanji Anandji Nite, Tabassum Hit Parade etc which served as his launchpad. He has been entertaining the world since the 80s. His daughter Jamie is following in his footsteps and is a comedian-actor-singer. Here is wishing him a long and healthy life.

Todays’ song is sung by Bali Brahmabhatt, Alka Yagnik and Shankar Mahadevan. Nadeem Shravan are the music composers and Sameer was the lyricist. It is a party song that celebrates the birthday of Sridevi’s character’s daughter. We have Upasana Singh, Kadar Khan, Sridevi, Urmila and Anil Kapoor singing and Junior Mehmood is also there in the scene.

So, here is a song which sings the mind of most males of the species. I am not judging anybody. 🙂 my statement is based on all the husband-wife jokes that are constant on the various social media forums. 🙂


Song-Shaadi kar ke phans gaya yaar (Judaai)(1997) Singers-Bali Brahmbhatt, Alka Yagnik,Shankar Mahadewan, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Nadeem Shrawan

Hullo to Atuldom

November 2nd is the birthday of a dear Atulite. A person who is very very important for Atuldom turns a year younger today. Without him there would be a lot of stress and strain on our dear Atulji when it comes to handling all the farmaishes and contributions that we Atulites keep sending and expect instant posting on the blog.

I have met him only once for a few hours and since then have often taken the liberty to pick up the phone and put all kinds of requests -from trying to speed up posts getting to the blog to asking help when my son and daughter visited Delhi. And he has never said a “NO”. Thank you so much Sudhirji. You are a true Dillwala Dilliwala. Wish you a very very Happy Birthday. Hope you have lots of time to be the co-poster of the blog. Hope you are able to find rare and hitherto unheard songs for all our collective listening pleasure. Hope you are able to find songs that rekindle memory of the radio listening days. Hope all your series find appropriate songs and you never run out of Mohd. Rafi songs. 🙂

Incidentally November 2nd also happens to be birthday of another Dilliwaala, viz SRK. SRK- Badshah also goes by the names Rahul, King Khan and occasionally Om Kapoor – I mean Shahrukh Khan. So, he has been around since 1988 entertaining his fans first on television in the serials Circus, Fauji and Dil Dariya and then burst on to the Bollywood firmament with the Hema Malini directed “Dil Aashna Hai” and Raj Kanwar directed “Deewana” which got him the best debutant award in 1993.

And since then he hasn’t looked back winning hearts and awards in his journey of 30 years in the entertainment industry. He has worn the hats of producer, IPL team co-owner, actor with ease and also tried his hand at singing. He has tried portraying villainous, romantic and comic characters with success as also played the lead in movies where he is a hockey coach (Chak De! India) or a person with Asperger Syndrome (My Name Is Khan). He is a complete entertainment package and here is wishing him all the best in life.

It is very difficult to choose a song that will showcase SRK’s energy and SK’s love for music. So, I have selected an SRK song which is one I enjoy and hope Sudhirji also likes. It is from a 21-year-old movie directed by Aziz Mirza- Yes Boss. It had Juhi Chawla and Aditya Pancholi as co-stars for SRK with Ashok Saraf, Johnny Lever, Gulshan Grover and Kashmira Shah in supporting roles. The song is an improvisation of a qawwali (my feeling). It is at a party hosted by Aditya Pancholi who runs an Ad agency and has his roving eye on all the models employed there. Juhi is also a model who is on his radar but SRK has taken it upon himself to shield her and has Johnny Lever and Ashok Saraf assisting him in his mission “shield a drunk Juhi from the BOSS”.

The song was written by Javed Akhtar, Jatin- Lalit were the music directors and Abhijeet Bhattacharya (was his birthday on October 30th, wishing him too although a little late)

Once again a very Happy Birthday to our Sudhirji.


Song-Jaata hai tu kahaan (Yes Boss)(1997) Singer-Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-Jatin Lalit

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.

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) (1997) Singer – Devaki Pandit, Lyrics – Javed Akhtar, MD – Zakir Hussain

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

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.

hullo Atuldom

“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.

Song-Ek thha gaanv jahaan ka ek aisa thhaa raaja (Viraasat)(1997) Singer-Hariharan, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-Anu Malik

Lyrics

hey ae
ek tha gaanv jahaan ka
dooma chikka chikka doom
doo doom doom doom
ek aisa tha raja
dooma chikka chikka doom
doo doom doom doom
ek tha gaanv jahaan ka
ek aisa thha raaja
sabke dilon mein woh rahta thha
uske jaisa koi nahin thha
ek thha gaanv jahaan ka
dooma chikka chikka doom
doo doom doom doom
ek aisa thha raaja
dooma chikka chikka doom
doo doom doom doom

gaanv mein sabhi ke chehre
dinga danga dinga danga
dinga danga do
phoolon ki tarah khilte thhe
dinga danga dinga danga
dinga danga do
gaanv mein sabhi ke chehere
phoolon ki tarah khilte thhe
khushiyon bhari thhi duniya
pyar ke diye jalte the
har ghar uska thha apna ghar
sabke liye woh ek baraabar
sukh aur dukh mein sabka
saathi woh banta thha
uske rehte har din mela thhe

ek tha gaanv jahaan ka
dooma chikka chikka doom
doo doom doom doom
ek aisa tha raaja
dooma chikka chikka doom
doo doom doom doom
ek thha gaanv jahaan ka
ek aisa thha raja
sabke dilon mein woh rahta thha
uske jaisa koi nahin tha
ek tha gaanv jahaan ka
dooma chikka chikka doom
doo doom doom doom
ek aisa thha raaja
dooma chikka chikka doom
doo doom doom doom

————————————-
sabke dilon mein woh rehta tha
(arri pagli shuroo se)
sabke dilon mein woh rehta thha
(mm hmm
maine kahaa na shuru se
)
kaise dadaji)
Ek tha gaanv jahaan ka
Ek tha gaanv jahaan ka
(Haan shabaash
Ab sab aise hi gaao
)
ek tha gaanv jahaan ka
ek aisa thta raaja
ek tha gaanv jahaan ka
ek aisa tha raaja
sabke dilon mein woh rahta tha
uske jaisa koi nahin tha

——————————-
zindagi ka sapna
ek din toota aa
band kar aankhein
sabse woh roothha
band kar aankhein
sabse woh rootha
usski yaadein dil se na jaayein
humko rulayein humko sataayein
chhaaya andhera
jab woh gaya
ab kehti har ek ki zubaan
