No Lata song from 2002 are covered in the blog. That leaves us with all eight songs from two movies of 2002 for discusussion in the blog.

This movie was produced by Sanjiv Karambelkar and directed by Gaganvihari Borate for Manas Communications.

Here is that song from “Laal Salaam”(2002). This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Gulzar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar.

Hullo Atuldom

Another date of October for which I always need to write out a post for.

It being the birth date of an actor whose work I began liking post 1975- “Sholay” to be exact. I liked the way he delivered his dialogues. Some dramatic dialogues which he had casually uttered are iconic and classic and stuff which fans quote as legendary.

Remember ‘mere paas maa hai’ it was not said forcefully or with banging of fists or any such heavy add-ons. He was also given dialogues which were comic in nature -for example the cricket commentary in English that has made “Namak Halal” a movie worth watching; he even managed to squeeze in some comedy intto the fight sequence in the climax of the movie. But I always loved the late night scene in Asrani’s office when Amitabh Bachchan calls Asrani and Dharmendra for a meeting to discus the situation between Vasudha and himself. I know I need not mention that I am talking of the Hrishikesh Mukherjee ’70s classic “Chupke Chupke” and the expression that he had when he said “for safety’s sake main woh bhi batadoonga”- priceless. He was so nice at depicting his emotions and I may have mentioned this a few times in earlier posts about how the scene between Sanjeev Kumar and AB Sr. in “Khuddar” was memorable as both the actors spoke with their eyes. An added advantage the film industry had when working with AB Sr. was he was good in action sequences too and is known to have enacted many of them without using a body-double or ‘stuntman’ (in filmy parlance). He managed to overcome his awkwardness where dance (a necessity in Indian movies) was concerned. He has also tried his hand at singing for his characters; for which initially, he was made-fun-of as he was considered to be a tuneless singer but he has sung and many of them have been very popular with his fans.

Today’s post which celebrates this all-time favorite actor of mine turning a year older or a step closer to 80 has a song from the 2003 (can’t believe this film was 18 years back, time has just flown) B R films production and Ravi Chopra directed “Baghban”. It had music by Aadesh Srivastava and Uttam Singh and songs were penned by Sameer. Alka Yagnik, Hema Sardesai, Richa Sharma, Sneha Pant, Udit Narayan, Aadesh Srivastava, Sudesh Bhonsle and Amitabh Bachchan were the playback singers used.

This song is pictured with an emotional Raj Malhotra (AB Sr.) singing, and yearning for his wife Pooja (Hema Malini) who is staying with one of their sons and he himself with another son. The story of ‘Baghban’ was something which was popular in the 60s and early 70s; but even this movie was successful with the new generation moviegoers. This song can also been seen as proof of what I stated earlier in this post viz. “actors speaking with their eyes”; here it is Hema and AB Sr. They have played the old couple so convincingly. The song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and Alka Yagnik.

Here is wishing the (once) Angry- Youngman, Shahenshah of Bollywood, Star of the Millennium, Big B or AB Sr. (people in entertainment industry have been addressing him in this manner for a few years now) a Happy Birthday and lots of good health.


Song-Main yahaan tu wahaan zindagi hai kahaan (Baagbaan)(2003) Singers-Amitabh Bachchan, Alka Yagnik, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Aadesh Srivastava

Lyrics

main yahaan tu wahaan
zindagi hai kahaan

main yahaan tu wahaan
zindagi hai kahaan
main yahaan tu wahaan
zindagi hai kahaan
tu hi tu hai sanam dekhta hoon jahaan
neend aati nahin yaad jaati nahin ee ee
neend aati nahin yaad jaati nahin
bin tere abb jiya jaaye naa aa aa
main yahaan tu wahaan
zindagi hai kahaan

waqt jaise thehar gaya hai yahin
har taraf ek ajab udaasi hai
bekaraari kaa aisa aalam hai
jism tanha hai rooh pyaasi hai

teree soorat ab ek pal kyun nazar se hatati nahin
raat din toh kat jaate hain
umr tanha katati nahin
chaah ke bhi naa kuchh keh sakoon tujhse main aen aen
chaah ke bhi naa kuchh keh sakoon tujhse main
dard kaise karoon main bayaan aan aan
main yahaan tu wahaan
zindagi hai kahaan

jab kahin bhi aahat huyi
yoon laga ke tu aa gaya aa
khushboo ke jhonke ki tarah
meri saansen mehka gaya
ek woh daur thha
ham sada paas thhe ae ae
ek woh daur thha
ham sada paas thhe
ab toh hain faasle darmiyaan aan aan
main yahaan tu wahaan
zindagi hai kahaan
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm

beeti baaten yaad aati hain
jab akela hota hoon main
bolti hain khaamoshiyaan
sabse chhupke rota hoon main
ek arsa huwa muskuraaye huye ae ae
ek arsa huwa muskuraaye huye
aansuon mein dhali daastaan aan aan
mai yahaan tu wahaan
zindagi hai kahaan
tu hi tu hai sanam dekhta hoon jahaan
neend aati nahin
yaad jaati nahin ee ee
neend aati nahin
yaad jaati nahin
bin tere ab jiya jaaye naa aa aa

Blog Day :

Today 28th September, we remember Sardar Bhagat Singh (28th September 1907 – 23rd March 1931), on his 114th birth anniversary.

We on the blog pay our tributes to him by posting a song from the movies made on his life.

I have mentioned in my earlier posts that the year 2002 was a special year from the point of view of ‘movies made on Bhagat Singh’. That year three movies were released on the life of Bhagat Singh.

23rd March 1931 Shaheed

The Legend of Bhagat Singh

Shaheed-E-Azam

We have already introduced the movies ‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ and ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’ on the blog.
“23rd March 1931 Shaheed” and “The Legend of Bhagat Singh” were released on the same date, and the third movie “Shaheed-E-Azam” was delayed and was released later in the same year i.e.,2002.

All the movies covered the story of Bhagat Singh from his birth to death, including important incidences of Bhagat Singh’s life. All these were presented by interweaving of songs which too were based on same incidences and theme.

The movie ‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ was almost frame to frame copy of ‘Shaheed-1965’ of Manoj Kumar.

I have been fortunate to present a few songs from the movies made on Bhagat Singh earlier on the blog, they are –

Shaheed – 1965 ( pagdi sambhaal jatta on 28.09.2013)

Shaheed E Azam Sardar Bhagat Singh – 1974 ( vekho loko on 23.03.2016)

The Legend of Bhagat Singh – 2002 ( desh mere desh mere meri jaan hai tu on 28.09.2018)

23rd March 1931 – Shaheed ( saans hain jab talak naa rukenge kadam on 23.03.2021)

Today I am going to present a song from the movie ‘Shaheed E Azam-2002’. It was directed by Sukumar Nair for ‘Surjit Movies’.

This movie was produced by Iqbal Gill. Gurmail Singh Dhami and Harjinder Dhami were the co-producers of this movie.

This movie had Sonu Sood in the role of Bhagat Singh. The other star cast included Raj Zutshi, Binnu Dhillon, Manav Vij, Dev Gill, Rajendra Gupta, Shama Sikander, Abhijeet Lahiri, Sadhana Singh, Ron Sladczyk and others.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Harinder Gill while its editing was done by Omkar Bhakri.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.05.2002.

Lyrics for the songs in this movie were written by Khwaja Parvez and S.M. Sadiq. This movie also included poetry of Baba Bule Shah and Sardar Bhagat Singh.

Music of this movie was composed by Maqbool Khan, Sabar Ali (Pakistan) and Sardool Sikender.

Today’s song is sung by Roop Kumar Rathod and Udit Narayan. On screen it is performed by Sonu Sood, Manav Vij, and Binnu Dhillon (I guess). This song happens to be in the jail premises as its picturisation shows.

Let us listen to today’s song now and pay our tributes to Bhagat Singh on his birth anniversary today.

(I have not been able to note correct words in Punjabi language, I would request knowledgeable readers to correct me wherever it is required.)

Hullo Atuldom

Heard this song today in the noon program of Vividh Bharati -Desh Ki Surili Dhadkan (the channel’s tagline). And immediately recalled a 2001 release which featured the off-springs of the actors from the above song. ‘Farz’ from which today’s trigger happened is 54 years old, the off-springs of the actors are themselves 44 and 40..everything seems like yesterday but all things that I mentioned are decently in the PAST. Even a movie that released in 2001 is 20 years old, ooh!!!

I am talking of “Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai” which was directed by Satish Kaushik, written by Rumi Jaffery, songs were by Sameer and Anu Malik. Its cast included Kareena Kapoor, Rinke Khanna, Tusshar Kapoor, Amrish Puri, Dalip Tahil, Alok Nath, Vrajesh Hirjee, Himani Shivpuri, Dinesh Hingoo etc.

I have not seen the movie as a whole but vaguely recall that the story revolved around a sensitive young adult Karan (Tusshar Kapoor) who frequently skips college. Despite his poor academic performance, he displays many other talents. He is clever, an excellent musician, and plays in a band. His father constantly expresses his disappointment in him which often leads to Karan having outbursts of frustration and anger. One day in a deserted street, he lays eyes on Pooja (Kareena Kapoor) for the first time and falls in love with her. Following this brief acquaintance, he looks all over for her but fails to find her. He slowly begins to lose hope in his quest, stops playing music and decides to move to another city with his uncle. While on his way there, his car breaks down, and he is forced to hitch a ride. To his amazement, he finds Pooja in the driver’s seat. As they introduce themselves, an accident occurs when a truck collides with their car, which subsequently falls into a valley. Karan and Pooja find themselves hanging from a cliff, and even though Karan manages to haul Pooja back up the steep cliff, he loses his grip and falls into the ravine.

When Pooja regains consciousness, she assumes responsibility for Karan’s death and offers to help in the search for his body. Meanwhile, Karan has survived the fall but is seriously injured and unconscious. He is found by a man who takes him to the hospital and soon after, Karan is reunited with his family. As he recovers, he reflects on how he should have confessed his love to Pooja in the few moments they were together. He also begins to focus on his education instead of his music. In time, Pooja arrives at his doorstep to apologize and offers her friendship. They become good friends and then Pooja tells Karan that she must leave for the United States for further studies. Devastated, he finally confesses his love for her. Pooja feels the same way and cannot deny her feelings for Karan, and promises that she will return to him once she completes her education. Karan agrees to patiently wait for her.

September 20th is the birthdate of Kareena Kapoor. The fifth generation of the Kapoor Khaandan, only the third girl from the clan to enter showbiz- the other two being Sanjana Kapoor (Shashi Kapoor’s daughter) and Karisma Kapoor. The younger daughter of Randhir Kapoor and Babita. A few other caps also fit her dainty head- cousin to Ranbhir Kapoor, wife of Saif Ali Khan, daughter-in-law to Sharmila Tagore. She is a recipient of 6 filmfare awards beginning with award for best debut for her role in ‘Refugee’ (2000). She is considered to be a style icon and has also competent in enacting a variety of characters as we have see in ‘Chameli’, ‘Yuva’, ‘Dev’, ‘Fida’, ‘Aitraaz’ -all in 2004, each character different from the other. She has been paired opposite most of the heroes of that period- Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan, Fardeen Khan, Shahid Kapoor, and the Khans viz. Salman, Shahrukh, Aamir, Saif. She has also acted in a few multi-heroine movies. She says she is a huge fan of the (late) Sridevi.

With this song “Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai” (2001) makes its debut. This song is in the voices of Preethi, Pinky and Babul Supriyo. Preethi and Pinky are sisters who were very popular in the late 90s and at the turn of the millennium. I recall that a song, picturised on Rani Mukherjee and Preity Zinta, rendered by these sisters was very popular among school children and youngsters in that period.

Happy Birthday Bebo, I mean, Kareena.


Song-Maine koi jaadoo nahin kiya (Mujhe Kuchh Kehna Hai)(2001) Singers-Preeti, Pinky, Babul Supriyo, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Anu Malik

Lyrics

ankhiyon ne raat kya jaadu kiya

ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o

shokh haseena khushbu waali
chaand bhi tujh pe marta
itni haseen hoon chaand bechara aur bhala kya karta
chaand ki baaten chaand pe chhodo
apni baat bataao

bin bole har baat samajh lo
yoon na paheli bujaao

is mehfil mein mere dil mein
kisne aag lagaayi
aag lagaane waali
tujhe tadpaane waali
mujhko nazar na aayi
chham chham paayal kyun bajti hai
mujhko zara samjhaao

baat samajhni hai jo tum ko
pass mere aa jaao
chhoona chhoona bainyya gori
dil tu de de chori chori

ankhiyaan milaake tune dil ko churaaya, loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya aa aa
toohi mere peechche aaya piya

ankhiyon ne raat kya jaadu kiya

Celebrating 75th year of India’s independence
————————————————————

I was just talking to a friend, who is very much involved with charity work and NGO’s. I said to her that it is very important for us to be charitable in all walks of life, for the health and prosperity of our soul. Doing a small thing for someone else’s benefit, however small that thing may be, which might not require any great effort on our part, gives immense satisfaction to us. This is to be experienced and not imparted. Giving and sharing of knowledge, makes the job of a teacher and guide the most charitable one in my opinion. Giving of advice or offering verbal guidance is sometimes ridiculed. But if an experience is shared, helps someone reach a correct decision or destination, there is nothing like it, as an act of charity free of cost.

But I find in myself, a hesitancy is directly offering to help. If I come across someone in need, then I would do so in whatever capacity I can, I told the friend, but I don’t go out of my way to find if someone requires some help. This is where I lack, and the charity organisations and NGO’s do the maximum output this way. The final conclusion of this discussion was that if everyone of us is involved in small acts of charity, in whatever way and in whatever capacity we can, the world will be a much better place.

Not that it is a very bad place to live, there is good and there is evil. Most of humanity is a charitable mass. Here devilry exists, that’s how we can know and value the goodness around us. One day I found a very good friend of mine reading a so called, non-fiction book titled “There is no devil”, or some such similar thing. My instant reaction was “Hey don’t read fiction posing as non-fiction”. She is not normally into reading books and this one was a thick paperback. This incident happened some years ago. I reminded her of it recently when our conversation turned to evil doers and evil people.

I believe that the world survives because of people who mean good and are trusting.

On my own part, if I need some help or favour, I will usually directly ask for it, no beating about the bush and hinting, nor waiting for that person to offer help. This habit of mine sometimes embarrasses people, which I realise belatedly. And then I have to do damage control, by saying it is alright if you can’t do it, or if you can do only this much, that will also be a great help.

This, I am told is because I have a very trusting nature. I also find it very easy to share my problems. If I am having some difficulty, or something is not getting done and I am stuck somewhere, I will share it with someone who is on hand, or standing in front of me. Of course, not to strangers, only with people I know well, I behave in this impulsive manner. Some may thing that “yeh achha hai, apne problem doosron ko de do aur khud free ho jaao” 🙂 :-).

Often, I have found that sharing of problems and issues, lessens the worry and sometimes results in help from unexpected and unknown sources. Any which way resolution of the problem is the end result. Such help from unexpected quarters is what is called divine help.

The world as it is, is running on trust. If trust on the laws of nature and the essential goodness, correct faculties and abilities of fellow human beings was not part of the DNA of humans then there would be nothing happening here on this earth. If this was not so, no one will be able to drive a vehicle on the road, to give an example of a small routine act.

And this is the same invincible trust which makes me type these random thoughts and experiences of life and send them for posting in the blog. I have known it that I have been in the correct place and deservedly the best possible blog, with the aim of categorising the hindi film songs. Eleven years ago, when I discovered this blog, I was under the impression that film music is my favourite pass time activity(after reading). But after all these years of writing for the blog, I am not very sure that it is the film songs or the writing, which I took up in earnest only with this blog, is my favourite activity. May be listening old hindi film songs is my passion and writing about them and other things is my calling.

Where I am going with all this? Not towards any particular destination as such. Only to express the conviction that being charitable and trusting is the natural way of life for human beings. If we are living any other way than it is somewhat an unnatural state to be in. There are people around us who feel insecure at some minor/major level and they behave in a less charitable manner, maybe in some aspect of their lives. Also, there are certain paranoia’s visible around us, which don’t really amount to abnormal behaviour, but they cause a handicap to the personal growth of affected person. Not to say that I have never been uncharitable or less trusting in my life. We all the susceptible to insecurities and paranoias of different kind.

But there is certainly a way to victory out of all this, with the strength of character, belief, trust and faith. These are the things that are required to succeed in any field. Sporting activity is no different, and as we celebrate the excellent performance of Indian athletes in the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics, and a first Gold Medal in athletics, won by Neeraj Chopra, we also celebrate the victory of the individual excellence, collectively with the joy of celebrating the 74 years of independence.

A song befitting the sporting triumph and the assertion of national pride is being presented, from the film ‘Chak de India’ (2007). The song is composed by Salim-Sulieman, written by Jaideep Sahani and the singers are Sukhwinder Singh, Salim Merchant and Marianna D’cruz.

This is a background song in the movie as the women hockey team is readied to participate in the world cup. The character building, confidence instilling and disciplining steps taken by the coach are what pays eventually as each player excels personally, toughens mentally, disciplines psychologically and grows up with the team and then succeeds. True success belongs to the whole team, not to the individual players, not to the captain, nor to the coach. In this years Olympics, eerily, the reel incident replicated in real life, with the Indian hockey team defeating the touted Australian team, in a shocking upset to reach the semi-final.

One song from this film is already posted in the blog:

This blog is an important and valued place on the internet and it is an honour to be a part of it. I dread to be a cause of any mis-happening or demeaning of the integrity of the blog. This space is my karambhoomi, dear diary, sounding board and much more, and I have been open to corrections/suggestions regarding my posts, by Atul ji and Sudhir ji.

While wishing Happy Independence Day to all the readers, I also wish to thank Atul ji and Sudhir Sir, for allowing me to write to my heart’s content. I will be forever grateful and indebted to this blog and all people associated with it, my fellow guest writers, Deshmukh Sir, Kamath Sir, Peevisie’s Mom and Satyajeet Rajurkar Sir (to name a few), and all the visitors and regular commenters. The confidence expressed by these senior historians and accomplished persons in different fields, means the world to me. It humbles me and encourages me to write more and better posts in future.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Ideally I would have liked to send the song with this post, a few days back so as to be posted on 26th July which was ‘Kargil Vijay Diwas’. A day, which commemorates India’s victory over Pakistan, and regaining control of the mountain tops in Northern Kargil of Ladakh in July 1999.

I am sure that we all are aware of the background that led to the 1999 war between India and Pakistan, inspite of the Lahore Declaration of February 1999, which was meant to provide a peaceful and bilateral solution to the Kashmir-issue.

Here is what I have gathered from various sources on the internet about the Kargil conflict:

“During the winter of 1998-1999, some elements of the Pakistani Armed Forces were covertly training and sending Pakistani troops and paramilitary forces, some allegedly in the guise of mujahideen, into territory on the Indian side of the line of control (LOC). The infiltration was code named “Operation Badr.” The aim of the Pakistani incursion was to sever the link between Kashmir and Ladakh and cause Indian forces to withdraw from the Siachen Glacier, thus forcing India to negotiate a settlement on the broader Kashmir dispute. Pakistan also believed that any tension in the region would internationalise the Kashmir issue, helping it to secure a speedy resolution. Yet another goal may have been to boost the morale of the decade-long rebellion in Indian Administered Kashmir by taking a proactive role.

Initially, with little knowledge of the nature or extent of the infiltration, the Indian troops in the area assumed that the infiltrators were jihadis and claimed that they would evict them within a few days. Subsequent discovery of infiltration elsewhere along the LOC, and the difference in tactics employed by the infiltrators, caused the Indian army to realize that the plan of attack was on a much bigger scale. The total area seized by the ingress is generally accepted to between 130 sq.km – 200 sq.km.

The Government of India responded with Operation Vijay, a mobilisation of 200,000 Indian troops. Finally, war came to an official end on July 26, 1999, thus marking it as Kargil Vijay Diwas.

527 soldiers from Indian Armed Forces sacrificed their lives during the war”

I have written a post to commemorate Kargil Divas once before too, where the song was from “Lakshya- 2004”. There was one movie that was made on the theme of Kargil-war in 2003 too. That was written and directed by J P Dutta. It had a huge star-cast and songs were penned by Javed Akhtar which were set to music by Anu Malik. The song tries to express the feeling of a martyr who wishes well for his fellow warriors and I don’t want to dilute it by expressing my opinions etc about it.

I had first thought of this song when the Pulwama suicide attack had happened. I had felt that it was not the first of its kind; I remembered the attack on the Indian Parliament on 13th December 2001 as well as the 26/11 terrorist attack of 2008, on various locations around Mumbai. I am sure all these unwanted tensions will keep popping up till the Kashmir issue is resolved. The least an Indian can do is pay respects to the departed heroes and show gratitude to the armed forces.

Today’s song is in the voice of Sonu Nigam. It has (in order of their appearance) – Akshaye Khanna, Ashutosh Rana, Manoj Bajpai, Abhishek Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Puru Rajkumar, Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Kapoor, Rohit Roy, Suneil Shetty, Sanjay Dutt, Deepraj Rana, Sudesh Berry, Mukesh Tiwari, Kareena Kapoor, Rani Mukherjee, Esha Deol, Raveena Tandon, Namrata Shirodkar, Armaan Kohli, Preethi Jhangiani, Isha Koppikar, Mahima Chaudhry on-screen. “LOC Kargil” (2003) showed the war/ conflict almost as it had happened in the winter of 1999. Also, the names of the principal characters were also (almost) true-life as also the names of the various battalions.

Incidentally, 30th July is the birthdate of Sonu Nigam who was born in Haryana to Agham Kumar and Shobha Nigam in Faridabad. He began at singing at the age of four when he joined his father Agham Kumar on stage to sing ‘Kya Hua Tera Wada’- the Mohd. Rafi classic. He continued accompanying his father on various occasions before finally shifting to Mumbai at the age of 19 to try his luck in Bollywood. He has been singing in Bollywood from 1993 and has various hits to his credit. His voice is soft on the ear. Many of his songs are my personal favourites with ‘Sandese aate hain’ from ‘Border’ and ‘yeh dil deewaana’ from ‘Pardes’ topping my list. I don’t know if the followers of this blog have heard the song with this post but it is another one from my playlist.

Here is wishing this singer a healthy and happy future.


Song-Bas itna yaad rahe ek saathhi aur bhi thha (LOC Kargil)(2003) Singers-Sonu Nigam, Lyrics-Javed Akhtar, MD-Anu Malik

Lyrics

Khaamosh hai jo yeh woh sada hai
Woh jo nahin hai woh keh raha hai

(Bharat Mata Ki Jai
Bharat Mata Ki Jai)

Saathiyon tumko miley ae

jaao jo laut ke tum m
ghar ho khushi se bhara

We have often likened this blog to a ‘train and its journey’. Here this train- ‘the blog’ is driven by the ‘engine’ that is our fearless leader Atul ji. The coaches of this train or the ‘wagons’ 🙂 are the team members. This train – a ‘bandwagon’ is on an exciting journey of exploring and discussing yesteryear Hindi Film Music and some non-film music too. The blog is read all over the globe (right?) and there are many many readers and well-wishers associated with this blog.

The journey is on … and before anybody ‘sleeps’ :), he or she must fulfill the commitments made to themselves and for the blog. These commitments have been taken voluntarily by the members with the permission of the ‘leader’. From the team members there already is our ‘in-house’ ‘encyclopedia’ and seniors writing in-depth posts on the yesteryear’s music and movies. There are passionate team members actively participating in this journey of ‘love for the cinema and HFM’.

Then there is me often sending articles, lyrics contribution, reminders to the editors, pointing out corrections, giving suggestions and (emotional blackmailing 🙂 of the editors not included.) always requesting for something or the other, all the time. 🙂

So, everything is going on well in order like a ‘standard operating procedure’. Here it is mutually agreed and ‘non-documented’ ‘SOP’ operating successfully for more than ten years now (that is after the contributors joined). This blog is the best example of well-synchronized efforts towards a ‘common goal’ in agreement by all.

Well, everyone is now aware of what I have mentioned above. But how the blog was in its initial days …

When it started, only the originator ‘the leader’ was there, and then he was not also a leader but a simple ‘enthusiastic music lover’. I guess that when he initiated this blog, he was an already married person. What did you said … is that anything to do with this blog? Yes, because after all a family person has to look after his family and also needs to contribute to domestic work 😊 at least in a small way if not a big contribution.

So how it was all when Atul ji had just started the blog? And after that, how he keeps it going, moving from places to places in his professional life?

That imagination is the subject of the today’s article with a rocking song accompanying to it :).

Before that we need to see Atul ji in two aspects – one being ‘his self’ in isolation as the one-man army, and second as a ‘team leader’ with all team members. It is him only who is ‘constant’ (like ‘change’) and owns a responsibility to keep this blog going. So, how he sets out on this journey, travelling from places to places, exploring HFM. I am sure when he launched this blog his morale was at an all-time high-level.  Since he was already doing a job then, the workplace responsibility also gets added and after that he needs to find time for his passion – writing about Hindi movies, the songs, and his related memories.

So, the journey of blog started from Jabalpur and then moving from places to places – Jabalpur to Nagpur, Nagpur to Bilaspur, Bilaspur to Izzat Nagar (Bareilly)- it is now halting at Gorakhpur. The next station may be Bhopal 😊 we hope so 😊.

Well, the journey must have started with the same energy as our today’s hero started ‘main niklaa o gaddi le ke’ 🙂!

 And every city he (our leader) lived in he left his ‘dil’ and collected ‘unforgettable memories’ of these places. In this process he did not care where he was. He was just moving … ‘gaddi le ke’

On the way he finds ‘moti’ (substitute for ‘mutiyaar’ 🙂 ), or actually lot of ‘motis’ (pearls). These are the ‘rarest of rare gems’ that are posted on the blog. Imagine that the dot days on the blog are the obstacles or ‘phaatak’ and ‘signal’. But, being disciplined person, our leader will not break the signal (translation of ‘signal todna’ or jumping the signal) and run, but he will wait’ and resume with more force with new milestones. Just think that the milestones are the centuries of songs and stations en route are the centuries of the various artists.

I believe that our leader does not believe in ‘dreaming’ and is a ‘man of action’. But, if not dreaming, at least, he must be planning some special articles for special occasions and combining them to ‘special statistical events’ on the blog. There are many new things – new songs – of yesteryear (starting from the thirties) coming to the blog which maintain the excitement of this beautiful journey. New events with ‘older songs’ keep the momentum always on a higher scale.

Just imagine thousands of songs falling from the heaven like petals of flowers, their fragrance filled in all the space around, and the man with his both his hands trying to collect each petal and embracing them to his heart with love. . . each creation of the songs getting the same love and enthusiasm and resting at their places shining like a bright star. . .

(We have compared the treasure-trove of songs to the ‘ocean of songs’ many times, for a change this time we symbolize them with flower-petals falling from the heaven 🙂 so that we can embrace them to the heart.)

Operating in this digital age now and maneuvering the steering with remote controls the ‘gaddi’ is travelling. And the journey is on. . .

 So today when our dear Atul ji is celebrating his birthday we wish him a very happy birthday and a healthy, wealthy, peaceful and ‘full of musical life’ ahead. . .

Let us now enjoy this entertaining song dance performance in Jat Yamla style 🙂 and celebrate this occasion. . .

Hullo Atuldom

In my post for the song “Kyun Aage Peechhe Dolte Ho Bhanwaron Ki Tarah“, two years ago, I had stated that ‘Hera Pheri’ (2000) had Paresh Rawal playing Baburao Ganpatrao Apte which gave a new angle to Paresh Rawal’s career. In that post I had also said that he had played main villain in movies and had mentioned ‘Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja’ (RKRCKR) in the list of movies where we could see Paresh Rawal as a negative character.

Recently there was a comment to that post where it was pointed out that ‘RKRCKR’ had Anupam Kher as the lead villain. As I was thinking about today’s post I realized another error in that post of mine. Paresh ji had shown his comic side in movies like ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ (1994), ‘Chachi 420’ (1997), ‘Mr. and Mrs. Khiladi’ (1997) etc. before ‘Hera Pheri’ happened. Sorry for the errors.

Over the years Paresh ji has played varied characters and most of them can be easily recalled. He has played the Iron Man (as Sardar Patel was called) in the 1994 release ‘Sardar’ and it is as unforgettable as many of his roles in masala movies like the Gujarati husband of a North-Indian wife in ‘Baghban’ (2003) who is forever quoting all the muhawaras (proverbs) wrong. He played the role of a father to Tabu in ‘Cheeni Kum’ (2007) who is shocked to find a 64-year old Amitabh Bachchan approaching him with a request to marry Tabu. He had played a henchman to Prem Chopra, Amrish Puri and others of the ’80s and even those characters have not been forgotten. He has shaken a leg with Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Suniel Shetty etc. and was not off-the-mark in them.

We have seen Paresh Rawal lip-sync songs in movies and he has had a few romantic songs too which was rather unusual considering that he was never the romantic protagonist. Today we have one such song wherein we can see Paresh Rawal wooing an astonished Mahima Chaudhry with flowers and singing a song in the voice of MG Sreekumar. The song is tuned by Anand Milind and written by Ibrahim Ashq.

The song is from the 2001 released, Priyadarshan directed and Neeraj Vora written ‘Ye Teraa Ghar Ye Meraa Ghar’. (The extra ‘a’ in the title is seen in the movie credits too)

The movie dealt with the troubles a house owner (Suniel Shetty) goes through to get his tenant’s family vacate the rented premises so that he can sell the property. Now the house owner is in a financial crunch and selling the house is an option that will work for his family. The tenant’s family (after the passing of the tenant) is being looked after by the working daughter (Mahima) and her contention is that they have been paying rent without defaulting and so the house owner cannot evict them. The movie has a few interesting and hilarious characters like the neighbor who comes like a knight-in-shining armour to Saraswati’s (Mahima) aid and retreats when he sees Dayashankar Pandey (Suneil Shetty). Similarly we have Saurabh Shukla playing Saraswati’s uncle, supposedly a goonda, who fails to help the family. Then there is OP Yadav (Paresh Rawal) an Inspector and a childhood friend to Pandey who promises to help in the eviction and ends up falling in love with Saraswati. The movie ends with Pandey and Saraswati working out a solution to their problems and the audience is entertained for close to 3 hours.

Priyadarshan had remade it from the Malayalam original ‘Sanmanassullavarkku Samadhanam’ (1986) (which should translate as ‘Peace of mind for the like-minded’). I think this was the first time that Hindi audiences heard MG Sreekumar who is a well-established singer in South Indian movies.

Here is wishing Paresh Rawal ji health and happiness on his 66th birthday. May we be entertained by you in the coming years too.

[Ed Note: Tomorrow, i.e. 31st May, is also the birth anniversary of Milind Srivastav, of the Anand-Milind duo, the music directors of this song. Wishing him many happy returns of the day.]

Hullo Atuldom

It has been a year and half since the world is fighting a Pandemic. This post by Avinashji set me thinking. He has listed disasters that have been hitting the world and how this pandemic is different from other disasters.
And we have lost many great artists and common people to this pandemic. Every person I know has someone whom they know testing positive of the virus. There have been cases where people have lost a loved one, a friend, an acquaintance etc. to the severity of the disease. Even I have lost a well-respected and loved aunt. We are sad or shocked when we hear of such deaths. And these are unexpected exits of people effected by the virus.

But what about those who died due to a long suffering ailment. Just when we get a news of the person being on the road to recovery we get follow ups about the person having been rushed to the hospital and that his condition is deteriorating. This is what happened with actor Irrfan Khan.

It was disclosed in March 2018 that he had been diagnosed with the dreaded ‘C’ and he went to the UK for treatment. He returned in 2019 and everything seemed to have settled to normalcy. We saw him complete “Angrezi Medium” (2020) which was apparently a sequel to his 2017 release “Hindi Medium”.

It is already an year since we lost a very good actor. Unbelievable. Isn’t it?

He was a good actor who made his debut in the entertainment world about the same time as Shahrukh, Salman and Aamir Khan. He too, started with a role in the doordarshan serials “Shrikant”, “Bharat Ek Khoj”, “Chanakya etc. At the same time he was seen in ‘almost’ bit roles in movies like “Salaam Bombay”, “Kamla Ki Maut”, “Ek doctor ki maut” etc. He was seen in some negative roles too. After about 10 years of working in parallel cinema he was offered the roles alongside Raveena Tandon, Shabana Azmi, Lisa ray, and other actors of commercial value, though most of these would be of a supporting actor or what is called character artist. He has also worked in a few English movies and dubbed or provided voice-over for ‘Baloo, the bear’ in the Hindi version of the “Jungle Book”. He was an accomplished actor whose commercial worth was never exploited to its fullest and now it is not possible.

In the wake of his passing away, many videos popped up, on various social media platforms, where we see him taking centre stage with Shahrukh Khan at a Filmfare Awards Nite. I am sure those are scripted acts and we see him putting on SRK style acts. we see him saying that given a chance even he would like to woo girls and have them fall in love with him.

He did have a few movies that can be called commercial as they had insane stories that essentially entertain the audience and help forget their troubles in the darkness of a cinema hall for the duration of the movie. Movies like “Thank You” (2011), “D-Day” (2013), “Piku” (2015), “7 Khoon Maaf” (2011), “Right Yaa Wrong” (2010), “Billu” (2009) etc. He may not have been the main lead in these but he had roles of substance and he was well appreciated.

In the run up to this post I went through a whole lot of movies where Irrfan was featured and looked for songs where he has lip synced. I must say that there are a few melodious songs filmed on him but only one or two where he actually gets to mouth the words of the song. I have settled for a song that may not be a connoisseurs’ delight but has Irrfan even shaking a leg. It is from the hardly-known movie “Dil Kabaddi” (2008) which had a cast of Soha Ali Khan, Konkona Sen, Payal Rohatgi, Rahul Khanna, Rahul Bose and Irrfan Khan.

I heard the song for the first time as I wrote the post. I must say that the lyricist must be a common man like most of us and not from the family of Ghalib or even Majrooh Sultanpuri, Anand Bakshi or Gulzar. He has used common place words and I am surprised that it didn’t register in the minds of the young brigade of movie lovers. Possibly because the movie didn’t have big names and it got lost in the crowd of popular releases of that year which had better publicity machinery in place.

The movie dealt with the lives of two modern day married couples caught in a web of boredom, loss of love and temptation. I vaguely recall catching the movie on some channel, ages back. It had Rahul Bose and Konkona as one couple and Irrfan and Soha Ali as the other. Payal Rohatgi was the “TEMPTATION”. It seems the movie was inspired by a Woody Allen movie. Sachin Gupta and Dhruv Dhalla were the music directors and Virag Mishra was the lyricist. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan played himself in the movie and sang a song written by himself. Of the playback singers listed for the movie I can only recognize Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Monali Thakur and Mika Singh. Today’s song is in the vocals of Poroma Bannerji, Monali Thakur and Jaspreet Singh.

(I know we have knowledgeable Atulites who will have information about all the new names of singers, music directors and lyricist in my post)
Thinking of an actor who went too soon.

Lyrics

good good good good
good good good good
good good good good
good good good night night night
good good good good
good good good good

meri fantasy come and see, meri fantasy
good good good night
meri fantasy come and see, meri fantasy
good good good night
meri fantasy come and see meri fantasy
good good good good
meri fantasy come and see meri fantasy
good good good goodnight
agar main pizza delivery boy hota
toh bees minute mein
hot hot tere saath hota
darwaaja tum kholti
hans ke meri bell pe
have one get one more free
offer hote tarah tarah ke
meri fantasy come and see, meri fantasy
good night
meri fantasy come and see, meri fantasy

kinni soni lag di ni kudiye
tainu vekh vekh assi ji gayi le
kinni soni lag di ni kudiye
tainu haay

samajh lo ik nurse hoon main
tumhaari nabj dekh loon main
samajh lo ik nurse hoon main
tumhaari nabj dekh loon main
tumhaari saans tham chuki hai
aa teri saansein le lu main
chadha du main ek tumhaare gulcose
saja du main bed pe red rose
good good good good
good good good goodnight
good good good good
good good good
