It can be seen from the table of 2001 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 12 songs in 6 movies released in 2001.

One song sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 2001 has been covered in the blog. That still leaves us with six movies of 2001 that offer us 11 Lata Mangeshkar songs for discusussion.

alphabetically, the first movie of 2001 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to discuss is “Censor”(2001). This movie was written, produced and directed by Dev Anand for Navketan Films, Mumbai. The movie introduced Heenie Kaushik, Raja aka Raja Bherwani, Vinay Anand(actor Govinda`s Nephew ) and Mohini Sharma aka Pinky Campbell.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song had the voice of Lata Mangeshkar.

Here is that song from “Censor”(2001). This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The son also had humming by a male voice which sounds like the voice of Kumar Sanu. But the song is a female solo song for all practical purposes.

Vinoo Mahendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Jatin Lalit.

The song is picturised on Heenie Kaushik and Raja Bherwani.

Lyrics of this song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

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
kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
ankhiyon ne raat kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
tuhi mere peechhe aaya piya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya aa
tuhi mere peechhe aaya piya
ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechhe aaya piya
ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechhe aaya piya

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
sona sona
main hoon sona

itna kehdo o occurs
meri hona

ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechhe aaya piya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya aa aa
tuhi mere peechhe aaya piya

maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechche aaya piya

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

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.]

76th Birthday of Javed Akhtar
————————————————————

Gham-e-dil sunnane ko jee chaahtaa hai
Tumhen aazmaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Sunaa hai ke jab se bohat door ho tum
Bohat door jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Unhen ham se koyi shikaayat nahin hai
Yunhi rootth jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Faqat hai yahi unn ki nazron ka dhokaa
Ke dhoke mein aane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Duaa hai ke ham se woh sau baar rootthen
Hamaara manaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Nazar wo na aayen par unn ki gali mein
Yunhi aane jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

—————————————————-
I could not find whose ghazal is this is, but giving it here as it rhymes with the title of the movie ‘Dil Chahta hai” (2001).

The song is a duet by Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan. All the songs of this film are penned by Javed Akhtar and composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. At the turn of the century, the melodious songs, sufiana, fusion, newer music instruments were all the new fad. And the foreign location shoots were also back with a bang in mainstream hindi films. It was not only the Yash Chopra films that were shot in Switzerland etc. There is the whole world to explore and Hindi films have been shot at many locations.

The film ‘Dil chahta hai’(2001) was shot at Australia, when the character Akash played by Amir Khan, moves to Sydney to look after his father business operation in Australia. The character of Akash was the meaty one in the film, with all the jokes to crack, all the drama to enact. It was the role of Sameer played by Saif Ali Khan that was less complex, understated but full of contradictions. Akshaye Khanna’s character was Siddarth, the quite sensitive artist, who looks at the world through the artistic eye.

I saw the movie again recently after this last post and thought again, that it is hard to believe that it is a 20 year old movie. Obviously made at the turn of the century, it has those vintage mobile phones, which look like antiques to today’s generation. Our generation has seen the most sweeping changes in lifestyle, of all the previous generations. The earlier generations, had very less comforts than us but I dare say their happiness quotients was higher than us, as they had less expectations and desires. The more our generation has achieved, it wants more of it, the comforts and the excitement, and thus losing out on the contentment in life.

Moving to the film, it has a few one liner jokes that have become a part of lingo between friends in my generation, like “hum log cake khaane ke liye kahin bhi jaa sakte hain”, ‘Waise bhi perfection ko improve karna mushkil hotaa hai”, ‘Kitni ajeeb baat hai, ke ham teenon hi Sydney jaa rahe hain – tum, main aur yeh flight” wagera wagera !

The song of this post is a duet by Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, with composers producing unique musical sounds, using newly invented music instruments. The song is shot in and around Sydney, in parks showing ancient trees, with Amir and Priety take the arial tour in a helicopter, overlooking the famous Lotus shaped Opera house at the famous harbor, picnic in the garden near the marina, travel in the city bus etc. I am not sure if one of the parks shown is the Botanical garden or not. The characters are having food at the cafes, and roaming around down town or up town whichever way you want to look at it, walking the harbour bridge which has the railway, road and walkway on the same level, while singing this song. Literally a steel sheet re-enforced ghat is shown to emphasis the line ‘pyaar ke ghat jo utarte hain’, which is carpeted with Chinese grass :-).

After one such outing the couple is returning home by the metro train, when Priety misses it, and left alone at the platform, while the train moves away. While Priety is waiting, an old man looking like a poor street person is approaching her and she is scared. At the same time Aamir returns by the returning train, and seeing that the old man has scared Preity, goes and hugs the old man saying ‘did she scare you?” ‘she did? how mean of her”. This is a movie and hence the joke. The big city crime scene is not a joke anywhere in the world.

Australia is a unique country, in a sense second only to USA. USA has a lot more mixture of different races. But Australia is something, which never sought independence from the colonial powers, because by the time the British empire was done with the continent, the aboriginals were extinct and the survivors were the one who had come to serve the British interests. So, no nativity and no going back to the past and not much history recorded of the pre-colonial era. Only to look towards the future, which is not a bad state to be in, all things considering. No wonder, it has been the land of opportunities for European, Asians, chinese, afrikans and Polynesians alike in the 20th century. It thrives in its solitary splendor in the southern hemisphere with jewel like cities dotting its coast line. The Chinese might have been the neighbors of long forgotten aboriginal races of the continent, as the continent is a snug fit into the south china sea. When the continents were a single land mass, of course.

Today is the 76th Birthday of Javed Akhtar, so to celebrate, here is this new age song penned by him. A poet is a champion who plays with words, and Javed Akhtar is a champion of champions in this regard.


Song-Jaane kyun log pyaar karte hain (Dil Chaahta Hai)(2001) Singers-Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Lyrics-Javed Akhtar, MD-Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy

Lyrics

Jaane kyun log pyaar karte hain

jaane kyun wo kisi pe marte hain
jaane kyun u u

pyaar mein
sochiye to bas gham hain
pyar mein
jo sitam bhi hon kam hain
pyaar mein
sar jhukaana padtaa hai
dard mein
muskuraana padtaa hai
zehar kyun zindagi mein bharte hain
jaane kyun log pyaar karte hain
jaane kyun uun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun

pyar bin jeene mein

pyaar jis ko nahin wo
tanhaa hai
pyaar bin jeene mein
rakkhaa kya hai
pyaar jis ko nahin wo
tanhaa hai
pyar sau rang le ke aata hai
pyar hi zindagi sajaata hai
log chhup chhup ke pyaar karte hain
jaane kyun saaf kehte darte hain
jaane kyun oon

o jaane kyun
jaane kyun

pyaar bekaar ki museebat hai
pyaar har tarah khoobsoorat hai
ho pyar se ham dur hi achchhe
arre pyaar ke sab roop hain sachche

pyar ke ghaat jo utarte hain
doobte hain na wo ubharte hain
jaane kyun

pyaar to khair sabhi karte hain
jaane kyun aap hi mukarte hain
jaane kyun
jaane kyun

jaane kyun
jaane kyun

Welcome 2021♫•*¨*•.¸¸♪

I wanted to embellish the heading of this post “Welcome 2021” with some emoticons, but since the keyboard has no such facility, dropped the idea. Google has the copy past option somewhere, but it seems like too much hassle. Obviously, everyone at google is working from home. Me thinks, all those big, huge, luxurious complexes hosting those multinational and national corporate offices, are soon to be converted into ‘khandar’ facilities, aka Mukesh Mills for shooting of films outdoorsy songs :-), fountains, glass panels, pillars and all. Not to mention funky cafe’s and state of the art gym and sports facilities.

Recently, I have been looking at a lot of outdoorsy, going places kind of songs, shot in different locations. Could not avoid the outdoor songs of “Dil Chahta hai”. But since the party song in the film is not posted, I decided on it. The song is “Koyi kahe kehta rahe kitna bhi ham ko deewaana”, by Shankar Mahadevan, Shaan and KK. In the party, Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna are dancing and singing with Suchitra Pillai and Priety Zinta. It is so fast paced and all three voices are so in tune with each other, that I thought the colour coding is going to be a headache. But once I had figured out that it was Shaan’s voice for Saif Ali Khan, it was smooth sailing from then on. Javed Akhtar’s lyrics are as always inspiring and upbeat, and the music compositions by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy were outstanding and were so fresh sounding back then. The whole movie, characterization, presentation, direction, cinematography and overall look was a novelty in 2001. Some call it a path breaking film, ahead of its time. But no, the time for such a fun, adventurous, neat, humorous and colorful look, had come. I read in the trivia that the songs of this film were created in 3 days, when Javed Akhtar & Farhan Akhtar headed to Lonavala along with Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy for the duration and all the songs were ready for recording. Now I am able to see that quarter, if not half of Mumbai party goer’s crowd, has already left for Lonavala for the New Year Eve, and roads leading to it are clogged since last two days.

Let us talk about the music score of this film. These two songs are posted:

Song Date of posting
Dil Chaahta Hai 8 August 2018
Kaisi hai ye rut 2 December 2019

1. The first song is the title song of the movie, a background song sung by Shankar Mahadevan. The phrase “chamkeele din” describes the mood and theme of the song. It is picturized as a holiday theme song on the road trip to Goa, by the three friends, Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna.
2. Second song is a dreamy concoction, with Akshaye, the artist, painting a portrait of Dimple Kapadia, while he falls in love with her.
3. Jaane kyun log pyar karte hain – This song is reminisce of the “Mehboob ki Mehendi”, jaane kyun log muhobbat kiya karte hain song. It is picturized on Aamir Khan and Priety Zinta. This one has nice, to and fro banter between the two characters.
4. Woh ladki hai kahan – This song started a trend of retro songs in hindi films. Really funky take off of older movie songs, in black and white canvas, with Saif Ali Khan and Sonali Kulkarni.
5. Tanhaayee – This is a sad song, where Aamir Khan is lonely as Priety Zinta is leaving Australia. Coming to terms that he, who never let any girl close has finally fallen in love.
6. Koyikahe – The party song of the current post.

I have heard accounts of how many times people have seen this film in theatre’s when it was released in 2001, and during the first weekend of its release. I must have seen it a little later, having heard it being praised no end, by my then immediate boss who saw it the first weekend it released.

So this is a party song for the New Year party all are advised to give a miss. Not that I go anywhere on New Year’s Eve, we are more of a stay at home kind of people and family.

No matter, we will go places in the New Year, through some fabulous songs. In sha Allah.

I am sharing this beautiful ‘nazm’ which is a prayer too, received from a friend:

Aao december ko rukhsat Karen

Kuchh khushiyon ko sambhalkar
Kuchh aansuon ko taalkar
Jo lamhe guzre chaahton mein
Jo pal beete rafaaqaton mein
Kabhi waqt ke saathh chalte chalte
Jo thak ke ruke raaston mein
Kabhi khushiyon ki umeed mili
Kabhi bichhde huuon ki deed mili
Kabhi be-panah muskuraa diye
Kabhi hanste hanste ro diye
In saare lamhon ko mukhtasar Karen
Aao disamber ko rukhsat Karen

Koyi haar gayaa koyi jeet gayaa
Yeh saal bhi aakhir beet gayaa

Kabhi sapne sajaaye aankhon mein
Kabhi beet gaye pal baton mein

Kuchh talkh se lamhaat bhi thhe
Kuchh haadse aur sadmaat bhi thhe

Kuchh be-rukhi kuchh be-chaini
Kuchh man mein simti veeraani

Par ab ke baras aye dost mere
Allah se duaa ye maangi hai
Koyi pal na teraa udaas guzre
Koyi rog na tujhe raas guzre

Koyi shakhs na tujh se gilaa kare
Tu khush rahe aabaad rahe

Tu jo chahe wo ho jaaye
Tu jo maange woh mil jaaye

Teri mu’aaf wo har khataa kare
Tujhe aise hi rab ‘ataa kare

(Aameen)

Hullo Atuldom

We all have some song that occasionally comes to the forefront of our memory. Then we keep playing it in our head as if on LOOP. Very often we are stuck at the mukhda itself. And forget to pay attention to the song as a whole.

Today’s song is one such song which keeps coming up in my mind’s playlist every now and then. I knew who the actors involved in it are. But didn’t know other details like who the lyricist and music director were? I just knew that it was from the 2001 released Rahul Rawail directed “Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi”.

This was one of the movies that gave the evergreen-lover boy Rishi Kapoor a change of image. He played a father to grown up daughters (twins played by Kajol). He was the divorced husband of Rati Agnihotri. He is brainwashed and kept permanently in a drunken stupor by his step-sister (Mita Vasisht) so that she can usurp (what else) his immense wealth. One daughter is with each parent absolutely unaware that the other is alive. Then in the true tradition of movies with twins, coming down the ages in movies like ‘Parent Trap’ ‘Do Kaliyaan’ ‘Pyar Ke Kaabil’ (this was also a Rishi Kapoor movie) ‘Pyar ke do Pal’ etc., the girls switch places once they discover each other and work towards reuniting the parents. The three Bollywood movies that I mentioned had twins in the age bracket of 7-12 years of age. “KKKM” had twins who were older so that brought in a love-story too for one of the girls and the other one helped in setting things right so that the marriage can happen. Now the love interest of Tina (one of the twins, the other being Sweety) was played by Sunil Shetty (he changed his spelling to Suniel Shetty in 2014 for numerological reasons).

Sunil is one actor who has been around since the ’90s, his debut being ” Balwaan”(1982) opposite the late Divya Bharati. His movies of the ’90s were primarily action oriented and with the turn of the century he found success in multi-starrer movies of various genres including the mad-cap comedy movies “Hera Pheri”, “Phir Hera Pheri”, “Awara Paagal Deewana”, “One Two Three”, “De Dana Dan” etc where his teaming with Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar were well received. “Mohra” was an action packed movie of this trio in the ’90s, meaning the new century saw everyone in new avatars. He even played the traditional bad character in Farah Khan’s “Main Hoon Na” in 2004. He is a cricket lover (which Indian isn’t) and is the captain of the Mumbai Heroes in the Celebrity Cricket League. He belongs to a family which is into the restaurant business and he has various other business interests including film production. His daughter Athiya has also made her debut in Bollywood in 2015. His son is also on his way to becoming an actor.

I have always felt that Sunil Shetty has been lucky with some really romantic songs picturised on him. Can anyone forget “tum dil ki dhadkan mein rehte ho”. For a long time I had not seen “Dhadkan” from which that song was and always thought that he was the protagonist. It was later that I discovered that he was playing a jilted lover who tries to reunite with his girlfriend even after she is married; his character was neither good nor bad but somewhere in between and he had the best song of the movie. He won the Filmfare Best villain award for this portrayal.

I also noticed that “main tumhe bhool jaoon yeh ho nahin sakta. Aur tum mujhe bhool jaao yeh main hone nahin doonga” was previously uttered by Pooja Bedi to Naseerudin Shah in the 1993 release “Lootere” (also a Dharmesh Darshan directorial). But this same https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hC0K2NMEMA is remembered as Sunil Shetty’s; something like Amitabh’s various dialogues down the years. By the way, “Dhadkan” was also by Dharmesh Darshan and he has written the dialogues of both the movies. That should explain why the statement was repeated.

Now today’s song has Sunil taking lessons from Rishi Kapoor on how to win back the affection of his ‘rootha’ pyar (i.e. appeasing the lover). This was a nice father-in-law son-in-law jodi 😉 This song is in the vocals of Kumar Sanu for both Rishi and Sunil. The female playback is by Alka Yagnik for Kajol and even Rati hums a line in the same voice later in the movie. And it is surprising (for me atleast) that this soft number is composed by Anu Malik and written by Sameer. Some parts of the song has an old times feel to it.

No prizes for guessing my sudden interest in Sunil Shetty. He turns 59 today and here is wishing him all the best for the future.

Hullo Atuldom

26th January is a national occasion which is celebrated across the country with hoisting of the national tricolour in the country’s capital New Delhi followed by the rest of the country in educational institutions, government buildings and some private housing complexes. There are speeches and parades all around showcasing india’s diverse cultures and achievements.

Our housing society too celebrates this national day with flag hoisting and a gathering of the residents. There is a small difference in that we also conduct a small Pooja the previous evening followed by small acts by the children of the apartment, dinner and games (in that order, mind it). The night always comes to an end with a game of housie and antakshari, I am going to be enjoying it this year after a long gap.

25th January happened to be the birthday of Kavita Krishnamurthy who was born Sharada Krishnamurthy in New Delhi. She is a trained classical singer who has also learnt Rabindra Sangeet. She first recorded a song under the baton of Hemant Kumar as a co-singer to Lata Mangeshkar in 1971 for a Bengali movie. In the second half of the 70s she was reintroduced to Hemantda by Ranu Mukherjee and was used as a singer in Hemantdas’ live shows from where Manna Dey spotted her and her slow journey into film music began.

Initially she was a dubbing artist and cut demos of songs intended to be sung by established singers. the 1980 release “Maang Bharo Sajna” featured a song in her own voice but was deleted from the final cut of the film. Her first major hit was in 1985 when “Pyaar Jhukta Nahin” hit the screens and “tumse milkar na jaane kyun” became a hit. From then she has been on the Indian film firmament with songs in Kannada (where she had recorded her first film song), Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati, English, Urdu, Nepali, Bengali, Odiya, Konkani etc. She was a Padmashri winner in 2005 and four time filmfare award winner. A humble and courteous human being who I had the luck to meet on one of my trips between Bangalore and Mumbai. She is very approachable and forever smiling. Here is wishing that smile stays forever.

Today we have a version of our National Song “Vande Mataram” in the voices of Kavita Krishnamurthy and Usha Uthup from the 2001 Karan Johar directed Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. We have various artists who have presented this song in their own styles. The ones which I love to hear on repeat are by Hemant Kumar in the 1952 release “Anand Math” and A.R.Rahman’s non-film version which came in 1997 which starts as “Maa tujhe salaam”. K3G had 5 songs by Jatin-Lalit, 5 by Sandesh Shandilya and one by Aadesh Shrivastva. Today’s “Vande Matram” is by Sandesh Shandilya.

Wishing everyone a Happy Republic Day. Let us try and be good citizens who are responsible towards our country with our actions.

As I have said in one of my recent posts, whenever I read something inspiring, be it a poem or an article, it inspires me to write something of my own thoughts. Nowadays there is less and less readable material forthcoming from the print media. The blog and its posts are sometimes savior’s for the intellect. One such article was the post by Sudhir Sir – “Gandhi Tere Desh Mein Ye Kaisa Atyachaar“, on the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.  It appeared quite late in the night, but as I read it completely, it was a thoroughly readable and thought provoking post. At least I found it thought provoking and for the next few days the matters and the quotes from the Mahatma’s books, and my own thought relating to them were reverberating in my mind. I wrote a lengthy comment on the post which I am reproducing here.

Sir,

Congratulations on writing such an extensive, studied article on Mahatma Gandhi and his philosophies. Reading it, I realised I haven’t read any of his books.  Being a Kitaabi keeda from childhood hasn’t helped me reach out to any of Mahatma’s books. Where ever I have found a bookshelf and a rack of books I tend to go through the titles and authors. In my defence, I can only say that non-fiction is not my strong case. Nevertheless, it is sad and tragic that the works of such great thinking minds are nowhere to be found in present day libraries.

The para’s you quote from his writings, about non-violence and cowardice; I dare say are the sort of philosophy which is popular as well as non-popular, depending on disparities in viewpoints.

I will quote an incident to explain what I mean. This happened in friends household. The son was playing football with his friends. A few other boys from the neighborhood, came up to one of the boy and started beating him over some fight or rivalry. All the friends including my friend’s son ran away from there. The boy came home and told the parents about this. This was just a school going kid. The father said, how can you do this, being a punjab da puttar, how could you not help your friend. The son said, if tried to help him than they will start hitting me too. Logic here, self-preservation not cowardice, the mother opined.

In the light of the above incident, the Mahatma’s point is first one will try to stop the violence by non-violence. But avoiding the situation altogether is not non- violence, but cowardice.  As opposed to valour.  The will to defend the one in difficult situation. Not just defend, but save. This is valour, opposite of cowardice.

But this is an era of “tamashbeen”.  A vast majority of public now prefers to just be a bystander and watch, rather than doing anything to stop the violence. Which neither here, nor there. This is a side kick of mass media. We are used to watching violence and it doesn’t make us flinch. A humans natural tendency to reject violence is gone. We watch it like it is a natural movie watching experience.

I believe, big cities are little better, with regards to violence of any kind. For the disruption is bigger and inconvenient. Crowd will be of various dispositions in any urban setting, someone will be a local and saner than others. Hopefully.

One more point, I would make here is about the “decay” of creation. The decay in creation is caused by impurities. The very nature of creation in mortal. What has started will end, whatever has lived will die. A natural death. Like some civilisation of the past died, due to natural calamities and became a step for newer civilisation to develop.

It is the truth which is pure. The lies added to it make it impure, and cause decadence. The civilisations that decay and then die of decadence,  rot. No new civilisation can emerge from such decayed rot.

So, we as humans, the superior among all creation, have a duty to preserve this purity in ourselves.

Regards.

I realize that the comment is just one dimensional, and could not carry the total sum of my impressions on the article.   I have said that non-fiction is not my strong case, and here I am, daily trying my hand at writing non-fiction  :).

Now I simply must quote this from the article :

It goes to establish that Gandhi was no ordinary soul, and such souls appear on this planet quite rarely. Albert Einstein has so beautifully summed it up in his tribute – “Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth”.

Of course I have read this quote before and this is not fiction. Another important thing he highlighted was about the discourse around ‘the relevance of the Mahatma today’.  And films like “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” were just a final stone dropped in the (already dry) pond, through the popular film media, to explain to the second generation Indians born after the end of the Gandhian era, that over dose of Gandhian philosophy like any other philosophy is also capable of creating a ‘chemical locha’ in the mental equilibrium.

May be the decay of this great civilization of homo-sapiens has started. The very nature of creation is temporary; all that exists will be destroyed one day.  The Universe may be infinite, but the only definite thing here is death. So be it, whether it is the death of a philosophy, a society or a world. The very wisdom of this species is in danger of being homogenized with its earlier extinct versions.

If one really gives deep thought about the situation the human race is facing, it feels as if the ‘Qayamat’ is truly underway.  The life we are living is like a tight rope walk of ‘pul-e-siraat‘.  One wrong step and below is hellfire. It’s that difficult to keep to the truth, obey the truth and keep faith in the truth.

But then there is a superior power, the creator, the sustainer and the nourisher of all that exists. As Allama Iqbal said :

mudda’ee laakh buraa chaahe to kya hota hai
wohi hota hai jo manzoor-e-khuda hotaa hai

So I have here a very positive kind of feel good song written by Javed Akhtar from ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ (2001).  The singer is Srinivas and composers are Shankar-Ehsan-Loy.   Yeah, the name of composers has a message in it.  I can try and translate the middle one i.e. ‘Ehsan’.

We all are familiar with word  ‘ehsaan‘ in songs like “Ehsaan Mere Dil Pe Tumhaara Hai Dosto” and “Ehsaan Tera Hoga Mujh Par“. The word ‘ehsan’ is a related word, with a change in meaning.  It means the ‘beauty of good conduct’. Or rather the beauty of best behavior.

The song I am presenting has a dream like quality with Dimple in white, Akshaye Kumar in white, and a white canvas.  The portrait of Dimple gradually develops on the canvas, while the Akshaye is dreaming on of pure water streams, dipping his hand into the stream,  full moon, in a dreamy halo of light and roshni.   In this moon light, all the colours are amalgamated to make a portrait, in which the fragrances are visibly mingling. Moon, stream, clouds, song, rain and butterflies are all in favour – in favour of the flavor of love, that is created of such different matter.  Some physical and some metaphorical matter, to make the billions and trillions of DNA that comprise this universe.

Mitwa – 1

sun mere bandhu re…..
sun mere mitwaa….
sun mere saathhi re…. 

The Poet i.e. Majrooh further says:

hotaa tu peepal,
main hoti amar lataa teri
hotaa tu peepal,
main hoti amar lataa teri
tere galey maalaa ban ke,
padi muskaati re
sun mere saathi re
sun mere bandhu re,
sun mere mitwaa
sun mere saathi re

The reference to peepal tree in the song is taking me to another memory of a long time ago.  The movie ‘Naseem’ seen a long time ago on TV.   I have looked up the info on this film on imdb (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0241753/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1).

It’s a movie alternately named ‘The Morning Breeze’.   Kaifi Azmi played the grandfather of the central pratogoist Naseem in the film and there is a dialogue uttered by him , which goes :  “Hamaare ghar ke aangan mein ek bahut puraana peepal ka ped thha.” 

This in turn is reminds of my own paternal grandfather, who was a staunch Gandhian and a Satyagrahi.  One of the lakhs of foot soldiers whose names do not appear in the list of those who fought for the independence of India.  He was participant in the Swadeshi movement and the Quit India Movement, in the tiny village in Belgaum District.  It is said the police came to the village looking for him, but his mother hid him in the sacks of food grains and thus he escaped arrest.  His name is ‘Meeran Saheb’ in the traditional way, people were named in that by gone era.  He was an avid reader of newspapers and lived in his own world, if he could help it.  Lived an idealistic and minimalistic life in the era of idealism with resources, available only to the extent of one’s needs for survival.  Wore only white Khadi Kurta-eezar with Gandhi topi, till the day he died.   It was his daily attire, be it someone’s wedding or Eid or whatever celebration or occasion.  New  clothes a must for Eid, normally he made do with 2-3 sets of clothes.  His life’s priorities were simple, news on radio and newspapers of Urdu, Marathi and Kannada.  My ‘Dada’ was not the only one to wear khadi as an uniform, there were others, his peers mostly who wore only white Khadi .

Another thing, I am more like my grandfather than anybody else.  It has been a decade or two, since anyone has called me “Meeran Saheb”, (the whole family and relatives on my mothers side used to call me that) but the memory is more pleasant now than it felt at that time 🙂 .

We are living in the times which are also good in some ways and bad in some ways.  There has never been a utopian era.  It exists in dreams and books of the visionaries.   There may be rare examples of near perfect society with peace, justice and prosperity existing in recorded history.  So we make the best of what we have and survive with our self-respect intact, the head held high and the values of humanity held close to the heart.   And what of hope?  Hope is always there and dreams are never in short supply.  One needs to keep faith and prayer on the lips for the Providence, who provides for one and all.

Ah…… here is the concept of providence.  Providence is the source of all that the creation needs and gets.  I did say in the comments of a post “Karta Hai Ek Raavi Ye Dilsooz e Bayaan“,  that I will try and explain the concept of ‘Ni’amat’ and ‘Barakah’.

Niamat for me is the belief system of Islam, i.e. Imaan, higher level of Imaan is Taqwa.  It is the belief in Allah (SWT – Subhanahu Wa Ta-A’la meaning All Praises For Him), his Prophets (PBUT – Peace Be Upon Them), his revelations and the day of Judgement i.e. Aakhirah.  It is a niamat that we have the ability to see, to hear and to speak.  The ability to breath and live.  The elements of nature like air,  water  and food which are life’s substance.  ‘Niamat‘ is also the word of Allah – his revelations in the form of aayats of the Quraan), sent down as guidance and warning.   Also that Allah (SWT) has promised to preserve his revelations i.e. the Quraan for mankind till the end of time.

Barakah‘ or ‘Barkat’ is that Allah (SWT) keeps providing for us these life substances, provides for all the universe, even for the smallest / minutest life forms to the giant creatures.  He keeps forgiving us and accepting our prayers. Listens to them and grants our wishes whatever is best for us.  For he knows what is best for us, we do not know.  He is the one who gave us the wisdom to be ‘saabir‘ (Patient) and ‘shaakir’ (thankful).  ‘Barakah‘ is again that the Almighty has given us pious parents and spouse and granted us children, with joy and contentment in life.  It is simple that if we learn to be ‘saabir and shaakir’ we will be content with our lot and life will be full of joy.   ‘Barkah’ is also increase of health, wealth and happiness.   It’s a blessing from the Almighty that we have the ability to understand all this and life’s philosophy. It is also the ability to give and to share.  The maturity to understand and accept that whatever worldly wealth, name, fame we have is given by the Almighty Allah and it is not ours, but we are the custodians.  He gives it in our custody so that we share the bountiful of worldly goods, this includes knowledge, among fellow beings.  It’s like a distribution chain.

Charity, I believe is nothing but the justification of our being blessed with health and wealth, in fact all ‘niamat‘ and ‘barakat‘.  Some are blessed more and others are blessed less (with health, wealth etc. in material terms). For both the types of people the blessings bestowed by God Almighty are a test, no less.  How they treat these blessings, how they react, and how they relate all this to the Almighty.  How thankful and grateful they are for these blessings.

From him, Allah (swt)  we came and to him we shall return.  We take with us only our deeds.  Here we come to good deeds and bad deeds.  What is to be remembered here again our deeds are what we do, how we treat our fellow beings in the world and how we behave in the world and what we cause as a result of our conduct, speech and behavior and deeds and how charitable or otherwise, we are. Essentially how much caring and sharing, we exercise in our life amount to our deeds here.  Mostly we might see there is the system of use and abuse going on around us.  We are part of the same system and involved in the same type of deeds.  But there is a thread of light all around us which shows the path of good, right and peace and justice. If we go forward looking for good than we will find  only goodness.

It’s a ‘Niamat‘ and ‘Barakah‘ that we have a belief in the ‘Day of Judgment’ too, all things considered.  Day of Judgement is when all our good deeds and bad deeds will be considered, and Allah (SWT) will grant us ‘Heaven / Paradise’ or  “Hell Fire”.  If humanity has this belief that we are answerable for all our deeds to a superior power, than this will stop it from committing all crimes and bad deeds, from smallest of bad deeds, like hurting someone with bad words, even.

See !  He is giving us, guidance, showing us the way of a pious, clean, spiritual and just life,  promising to preserve this book for us till the end of time, promising us rewards for the good deeds that we are able to amass, because of his naimat and barakah, in the hereafter.    So , which of the blessings, gifts and favours  given by our Lord and Master, are we going to deny ?

May Allah (SWT) grant us with the Baraakah for believing in the essential goodness of human nature.

This song from “Lagaan’ is a special one.  The song’s title is ‘Mitwa’, and every time I am looking for a celebratory song, this keeps coming to memory.  It is all about hope and spirit to win and overcome the difficulties in life, with strength and aplomb.  Javed Akhtar is the lyricist and AR Rehman is composer.  It is a group song which became a speciality of AR Rehman. The singing voices are Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan, Sukhwinder Singh and Srinivas.  This is one of my favourite songs by Udit Narayan, for the rally that he sang in the mukhdaa. There should be a category of ‘mitwaa‘ songs too, as there are many classic songs in the Golden era.  I have one more ‘mitwa‘ song in my sights for writing a post.  If I can find one more inspiring song in the category, will try to make a trilogy of posts on ‘Mitwaa”.

Meanwhile, the holy month of ‘Ramadhan’ has ended, with ‘Eid-ul-fitr’ also come and gone, I take this opportunity to wish everyone  Eid Mubarak, belatedly.  May Allah (SWT) grant your wishes and answer your prayers.

tujh ko kya darr hai re

apnaa ambar hai re

tu aa jaa re ea ea

हर संत कहे
साधु कहे
सच और साहस है जिस के मन में
अंत में जीत उसी की रहे ।

आजा रे आजा रे
आजा रे आजा रे
भले कितने लम्बे हों रस्ते हो …
थके न तेरा ये तन हो …
आजा रे आजा रे
सुन ले पुकारे डगरिया
रहे न यह रस्ते तरसते हो
तू आ जा रे
इस धरती का है राजा तू
ये बात जान ले तू
कठिनाईसे टकरा जा तू
नहीं हार मान ले तू
ओ मितवा सुन मितवा
तुझ को क्या डर है रे
ये धरती अपनी है
अपना अंबर है रे
तू आ जा रे ए ए ए ए

जो सपना है तुमरा
सपना वही हमरा है ए ए
जीवन में
हाँ

आशा के दिये नैनन में
दिये हमरी आशाओं के
कभी बुझ न पाएँ
कभी आंधियान जो आ के
इन को बुझाएँ
