Happy Children’s Day to Atuldom

“Makdee” means spider. This was also the title of a movie in 2002 which was directed by Vishal Bharadwaj who was also the music director. This was one of the movies in recent times that portrayed children the way they actually should be – as bright, intelligent, naughty and playful. I am put-off when children are portrayed as miniature adults and made to mouth huge sentimental dialogues which I am 100% sure kids from normal upbringing would not even dream of. My definition of kids from a normal upbringing is where the only thing that a child has to do is finish their school, come home -play in the ground or backyard, do their studies for the next day, help around the family as per necessity, play mischief and be active through the day so that they sleep peacefully and wake up fresh to have their routines all over again. In between all this they should have time to read comics, novels, have memorable time with their grandparents and friends which will stay with them for their life as pleasant memories. ‘Makdee’ was one such movie.

It had Shweta Prasad play 10-year-old twin sisters – Chunni and Munni. Chunni who was a prankster and Munni the timid, studious kind. Chunni keeps fooling around the village and constantly gets into trouble with the local butcher Kallu along with her friend ‘Mughal-e-azam’ and on one occasion Kallu chases them around the village and in the melee Munni runs into a mansion which is famous around the village as to being haunted. Then what follows is Chunni’s struggle to find her sister, save her from the clutches of the witch who resides in the haunted mansion, and in the process solve the case of all the persons from the village, who went missing, when they ventured into the mansion. She also is felicitated by the collector of the district as she finds the reason for the witch (Shabana Azmi) making the mansion her home- a hidden treasure.

‘Makdee’ had all the elements that would was needed in a children’s film- fun/ fantasy and a moral – which is the essential of any story telling session with kids. The moral being that “you cannot cry wolf always, as a time will come when people will stop believing you.”

14th November is celebrated as children’s day in India in memory of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. He was fondly called chacha Nehru and it is said that he was fond of children. I remember my father used to tell me about his school trip to Delhi when he was in class 8 or 9 and they were fortunate to have an audience with the then Prime Minister Pandit Nehru and what an experience it was – today’s youngsters would use the word AWESOME. My father was also proud about nearly sharing birth dates- his birthdate was 15th November. In fact, he used to say that it was not difficult to remember chacha Nehru’s death anniversary as that was the date he landed in Mumbai from Ahmedabad for his job and found all available forms of transport had stopped as a mark of respect to the departed leader. But that is not the purpose of this post.

Let us move on and enjoy this lively song which shows the exact emotion a child will have when it is a holiday from school or vacation or there is an unexpected holiday declared due to rains, bharat bandh, or death of some trustee or anyone remotely important. Here I will confess that I see myself as Chunni, Munni, Mughal-e-azam and all the kids in this movie. I identified with them.

Hullo Atuldom

November has dawned. Here is the first birthday post of the month.

It is the birthday of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. This gorgeous Miss World 1994 is also a Padma award winner along with awards for Best Actress (Ham Dil De Chuke Sanam) and Best Actress in a supporting role as Parvati (Devdas).

She made her debut in movies after a brief stint as ramp model and modelling for products like Lux and Coca Cola where she appeared with Aamir Khan. Prior to that she had appeared in an ad for Pepsi with Amir Khan and Ritu Chaudhry (a.k.a Mahima Chaudhry) – remember the ad where the girls are Amir’s new neighbours and he jumps out of his window to run across and get a Pepsi for the girls and tries to impress them and Aishwarya appears as Sanjana at the end. I found other ads featuring Aishwarya on YouTube for products like watches, beauty creams etc. The next step after modelling was movies which happened with the Mani Ratnam directed Tamil film “Iruvar” (1997) with Mohanlal, Revathi, Prakash Raj as co-stars. She made her Hindi debut the same year with “Aur Pyar Ho Gaya” opposite Bobby Deol. And then she has not looked back. She has played a passionate artist in “Kandukondain Kandukondain” (Tamil) 2000, Tagore’s Binodini in “Choker Bali” (Bengali) 2003, depressed woman in “Raincoat’’ (Hindi) 2004, Kiranjit Ahluwalia -a much abused wife who got international attention for burning her husband to death- “Provoked’’ a British-drama genre movie in 2006, a nurse looking after a paralyzed magician turned Radio Jockey who has filed a petition seeking permission to end his life in “Guzaarish’’ in 2010. All the movies that I mentioned here gave her critical acclaim and she had a good number of successful critical and mass appeal films. She has proved the general thought wrong that a heroine loses her popularity and star appeal once married and a mother at that. She has been under public scrutiny for everything that she does but keeps mum and doesn’t reply to the trolls that she is subjected to. Isn’t that noteworthy?

A few years back, for my niece’s wedding, I had purchased a saree which my sister-in-law loved very much and was looking for a similar one only in a different colour combination. I tried to assist her in finding that or a similar saree in the combo she wanted. I am happy to say I finally managed to get it for her on my recent trip to Calcutta (now Kolkata) during Durga Puja. I am sure this sudden off-track by me has jolted the reader into thinking what is the connection with Aishwarya Rai!!

Well it is connected with the song that is coming with this post. It is the almost like the saree that all the ladies are wearing in this song (disclaimer: neither the song nor the movie was reason for my sis-in-law’s liking for the said combination; she doesn’t even know of its connection with Aishwarya 🙂  )

Another connection is that this song happens at a huge haveli in old Calcutta for Durga Puja. It is from the 2002 Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed “Devdas” based on the book of the same name by Sharath Chandra Chattopadhyay. We have Aishwarya Rai dancing with Madhuri Dixit (another heroine whose popularity has not decreased post marriage and kids) at the Sindhoor- Khela which is an essential part of Dussehra during Durga Puja.

The song is in the voice of Shreya Ghosal, Kavita Krishnamurthy and KK. It was written by Nusrat Badr and Ismail Durbar was the composer. Saroj Khan is the choreographer for this magnificent dance which had the two heroines looking extremely gorgeous and they matched step-for-step brilliantly.

It is a song which is my personal favourite 2-heroine dance and I don’t think I will ever tire of seeing it. The choreography got Saroj Khan her 8th Filmfare award and it must be the only song which has a Wikipedia page.

I suggest a visit to the page (dola re dola   ) for interesting trivia about the song.

Today “Devdas” version 2002 makes its debut on the blog to Wish the blue-green eyed Miss World, Miss Photogenic and Miss World Continental Queen of Beauty – Asia- Oceania (sub titles that she won at the Miss world pageant held in Suncity -South Africa) a very Happy Birthday.

Hullo to Atuldom

Today I have a very difficult task. The task of selecting one song from a possible 5251 (7874-2623 as per the stats page of the blog) is almost like needle in a hay stack. And there will be at least a few thousand popular songs in this 5k of which many will fall in the category of “How come…?”. Some may lead to their movies getting Yyippeeeed and some may introduce a new movie onto the blog.

I never added any criteria for the song selection as I had so many songs of this singer, running through my head. Over the last few days I had heard many songs of this artist and found that most of them are yet to appear on the blog. It doesn’t help matters that she has been around since 1948 – just about 71 years of work to choose from. 71 years of work means singing for all the females who have ever graced the Bollywood firmament, of course excluding the ladies of the silent era. I thought I will take the easy way out and try and find the first ever Bollywood song recorded by her for Hansraj Behl in 1948. But, if only, life was that easy!!!! 🙂

Just then, as if Godsend, my daughter called me for getting some clarification and as soon as we finished her work with me, I told her what I was up to, and we went into overdrive about the song selection. She on her part suggested a few songs which both of us love and have music cassettes of, but I shot them down as they were non-filmy. I had my reasons for shooting them down- when there are so many movie songs left why go for non- film songs. We still have years to go before we run out of film songs. Then, after a lot of brain-storming with my dear Peevesie, I zeroed in on a song written by Gulzar.

What is unusual about this song? For one, it is one of the rare occasions where Anu Malik has given music for an album with songs written by Gulzar. This album has songs sung by Asha Bhonsle, K.S. Chitra, Jaspinder Narula, Roop Kumar Rathod, Palash Sen and KK. All the songs of the movie were well received. But the track by our birthday girl was a huge hit. I am talking of the songs from Meghna Gulzar’s directorial debut “Filhaal” of 2002. Meghna, as is well known, is the daughter of Rakhee and Gulzar. She started out her career as a free-lance writer, going on to assist Saeed Akhtar Mirza and her father before going on to direct “Filhaal”. It was not an unusual story but was handled differently.

The movie had Sushmita Sen and Tabu – as stars of commercial value and Dr. Palash Sen and Sanjay Suri as the male actors. The ladies are long-time friends but differ in their dreams and aspiration. They are different where settling into family is concerned but when one of them (Sushmita) has a problem in her family life, as she cannot conceive, the other (Tabu) steps in to be a surrogate mother to her friend’s child. Then differences crop up between the friends as the pregnancy progresses and how they resolve all the confusion forms the gist of the movie. It was critically appreciated but I am unaware of its commercial status.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. I hope all the readers had guessed that I want to wish our Ashaji a lot of health and good times and hope to hear more of her songs.

P.S.: Hope people have noted that I have exercised restraint and not mentioned about her lineage, family, her most popular songs and my favourite Asha Bhonsle song. Only I know how difficult it was not to mention songs. 🙂


Song-Ae zindagi ye lamha jee lene de (Filhaal)(2002) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Anu Malik

Lyrics

ae zindagi
yeh lamha jee lene de
ho o o o
pehle se likha
kuchh bhee nahin
roz naya kuchh
likhti hai tu
jo bhee likha hai
dil se jiya hai
ye lamha filhaal jee lene de
ye lamha filhaal jee lene de

maasoom si haseen bewajah hee kabhi
honthon pe khil jaati hai
anjaan si khushi
behti huyi kabhi
saahil pe mil jaati hai
ye anjaana sa darr
ajnabi hai magar
khoobsoorat hai jee lene de
ye lamha filhaal jee lene de
ye lamha filhaal jee lene de

dil hi mein rehta hai
aankhon mein behta hai
kachcha sa ik khwaab hai
lagta sawaal hai
shaayad jawaab hai
dil phir bhi betaab hai
ye sukoon hai toh hai
ye junoon hai toh hai
khoobsoorat hai jee lene de
ye lamha filhaal jee lene de
ye lamha filhaal jee lene de

ho o o pehle se likha kuchh bhi nahin
roz naya kuchh
ho o o likhti hai tu
jo bhi likha hai
dil se jiya hai
ye lamha filhaal jee lene de
ye lamha filhaal jee lene de

In my last article, I had discussed Nagesh Kukunoor, a NRI and a Chemical Engineer from USA, who left his lucrative job there to become a film-maker. Somnath Sen was another NRI who, after working as a Software Engineer in the U.S., decided to become a film-maker. Armed with a Master’s in film-making from the University of Southern California, he returned to India to begin his passion for film making.

Initially based in Delhi, Somnath Sen started his work in the visual media with television serials. Later, he moved to Mumbai, where he began his apprenticeship in the various fields of film-making viz, direction, screen-play, cinematography, production-coordinator etc by associating himself with films like ‘Rangeela’ (1995), ‘Raja Hindustani’ (1996), ‘Judwaa’(1997), ‘Kachche Dhaage’ (1999), and ‘Jaanam Samjha Karo’ (1999). He was also associated with documentaries, music videos, corporate films and commercials. In around 2000, Somnath Sen moved back to Los Angeles and became the Creative Head of Lemon Tree Films, a Hollywood film banner floated by two American-Indians who were in the entertainment business.

‘Leela’ (2002) was Lemon Tree Films’ first full length feature film in English which was produced in Hollywood and directed by Somnath Sen. I was neither aware of this film nor was I aware of songs in it. It was only when I was browsing through the filmography of Gulzar saab I came across this film. Luckily, the DVD of the full film is available on the internet. I watched the film and came to know that it was a Hollywood film in English, shot mostly in around Los Angeles with most of the American crew.

The film in DVD is about 100 minutes’ duration. Some of the dialogues are muted probably on the suggestions of CBFC. There are three old Hindi film songs – one each from ‘Junglee’, ‘Jaanwar’ and Kohra’ played in the films (got the names from the credit titles) during some occasions but these are also muted either partly or fully probably on copyright issues.

The theme of the film is broadly the same as that of Nagesh Kukunoor’s ‘Hyderabad Blues’ (1998). However, there is subtle difference in the sense that while ‘Hyderabad Blues’ (1998) highlights the identity crisis faced by a returning NRI in India, ‘Leela’ (2002) is about the identity crisis experienced by an American-Indian teenage son of a NRI couple settled in the USA and a visiting professor from India to the USA. The film also portrays as to how the rules of moral conduct in India get diluted once NRIs spend long period of stay in the USA yet they remain engraved to some extent in them.

The story of ‘Leela’ (2002) revolves around two couples – one the Mumbai-based and the other the Los Angeles based. Leela (Dimple Kapadia) is a professor at the University of Bombay. Her husband, Nashaad (Vinod Khanna) is a poet-singer. Leela is not happy with marital life as her husband is a womaniser. However, separation from her husband is not in her mind as she still loves him.

The film starts with a funeral of Leela’s mother shot in Madh Island (This, with Leela travelling to Mumbai airport are the only scene from the film shot in India). Leela is depressed because of her mother’s death. Additionally, she also feels that she has lost her identity to her husband as she is more known as the wife of the poet Nashaad than a professor. She gets a timely offer from University of Southern California as a visiting professor on the subject of heritage of South Asian countries in a college. She accepts the offer and departs to her new abode to find her own space leaving her husband behind.

Once in the U.S., Leela meets Krishna who is known as Kris (Amol Mhatre, an American-Indian actor) among his friends. He is one of the students in her class. This 18-year boy comes from a broken family and is torn between two cultures, as he was born in the States to parents who immigrated from India. He has been brought up by single mother, Chaitali (Deepti Naval) a divorcee whose ex-husband, Jai (Gulshan Grover) stays with his American girl friend. When Leela befriends Kris’s mother, Chaitali, another professor in the same college, Leela comes to realise that there is much that she can learn about herself from Chaitali. She finds herself exploring the real meaning of freedom.

After some initial hesitation, Kris becomes close to Leela. He starts visiting Leela’s house to learnt more about Indian heritage. He also gets to know about Hindustani classical music and learns to play Sarod. Over a period of time, Kris’s constant meeting with Leela turns into his infatuation of her. Leela discovers herself in a way that would not have fit in the Indian moral code. She starts spending time with Kris. Despite the age difference, it is a meaningful relationship for the two – Leela looking for freedom and Kris getting to know about his Indian heritage.

The story takes a dramatic turn when Kris comes to know that her mother has an affair with an American man. It was a great shock to him. He leaves the house and his father arranges for him a separate house to stay. Around the same time, Leela on a telephonic talk with Nashaad, comes to know that he has a woman in his house. In a fit of anger, she bangs the telephone and remove the cord as she is in no mood to listen to Nashaad’s excuses. At this point, Kris visits Leela’s house and finds her in very bad mood. Both Kris and Leela are emotionally at the venerable situations. Both need each other for solace. At this juncture, both finds in each other’s arms and inevitable happens.

This incidence stains the relationship between Leela and Chaitali. She develops contempt for Leela. In the meanwhile, Nashaad who is worried about the strange behaviour of Leela, decides to accept an offer for his concert tour in the USA. He visits Leela’s house who shares her guilt with Nashaad of her ‘one-night stand’ with Kris. Nashaad is not perturbed by this news. On the contrary, he consoles Leela and at the same time chats with Kris. They became friends. In one of Nashaad’s private concerts, Kris even plays guitar as accompanying musician. After the end of his concert tour, Leela decides to return to India with Nashaad. The film ends with Kris at the departure gate of Los Angeles airport giving his cap to Nashaad as a memento. In return, Nashaad puts his folded shawl on the shoulder of Kris.

As told by director, Somnath Sen in one of his interviews, ‘Leela’ (2002) is a Hollywood film with a soul of a Bollywood. The elements of Bollywood are represented by Hindi songs of different genres – classical, Gujarati garba, Punjabi folk, ghazals and light music. More importantly, the film has a happy ending.

The film was a box office disaster. As per the Box Office India report, the film was made at a total cost of around Rs.2.25 crore. But world-wide, the film could garner about half of the cost of the film. The film was critically acclaimed in the US reviews but Indian reviews were not kind to the film.

The highlight of the film is the brilliant music given by Jagjit Singh (5 songs) and Shantanu Moitra (2 songs). I am presenting one of the songs ‘khumaar-e-gham hai mahekti fiza mein jeete hain’ which is a ghazal composed and sung by Jagjit Singh. The ghazal is written by Gulzar. All the she’rs of the ghazal sum up the relationship between Nashaad and Leela.

A video clip of the song made from short clips of the various scenes from the film is available on the internet, I feel that this is not the original video clip because I have seen these scenes in the film in the different context. My gut feeling says that this song was picturized on Nashaad (Vinod Khanna) during a get together with his fans in the USA. There is a scene in the film of get-together in which Nashaad’s fans request him to sing a ghazal. But the next scene jumps to Leela’s house. Probably, this song must have been deleted from film’s DVD which was released in 2006.

This lovely ghazal of Gulzar in the silken voice of Jagjit Singh fits very well to what English poet P B Shelly had said – ‘our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought’.

tere khayaal ki aab-o-hawa mein jeete hain

Blog Day :

4018 Post No. : 15129

It is the 8th year of my association with our Blog. I do not remember the date but it was in the month of July 2011 when I found this musical  Blog. I began my formal association with the Blog by posting my first comment sometime in the last week of July 2011. It was much later  I came to know that the Blog had then just completed its third birth anniversary.

Congratulation to Atul ji and his bandwagon for completing today the 11th year of the Blog. Over a period of time, our Blog has transformed into a cooperative movement to propagate Hindi film and non-film music especially of the vintage and the golden periods.

My interest in Hindi film music began during the early days of Binaca Geet Mala which used to be broadcast on Radio Ceylon every Wednesday. But it was during the late 1960s that I developed interest in the nitty gritty of Hindi film songs. I became the collector of 78 rpm gramophone records of popular as well as the then rare songs mostly of films released during 1940s to 1960s. However, by 1972-73, I had become disillusioned with my hobby for number of reasons, the main reason being the undesirable practices of a few of the record collectors and sellers.

During 1990s to 2000s, I was virtually cut off from the Hindi film music of the golden era as even my record player became irreparable and the India-made new ones were not available. The radio had become almost redundant. During this phase, I used to regularly watch TV programmes on Doordarshan (for Chitrahaar), Channel [V] and MTV. At that time, I started liking Hindi pop songs (Indipop). Those were the days when Hindi pop songs had become very popular to the extent that they were competing with Hindi film songs in terms of sales of the song albums. Among the Hindi pop singers, Alisha Chinoy, Sunita Rao, Sweta Shetty, Phalguni Pathak, Palash Sen, Diler Mehndi, Lucky Ali, Sonu Nigam and many others became very popular. The popularity of Hindi pop songs attracted some of the already well-established artists like Asha Bhonsle, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Shubha Mudgal, AR Rehman, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Javed Akhtar etc. who got associated with Indipop.

After my final retirement from the service in June 2009, I again got interested in Hindi film music. It was during this phase when I came across this Blog and my interest in the Hindi film music was revived. But the most important contribution of the Blog for me was that my hobby of listening Hindi film songs got expanded to cover non-film songs and research in Hindi films and the music. The Blog has become a learning curve for me insofar as Hindi films and non-films music are concerned.

On the occasion of the 11th birth anniversary of our musical Blog, I have chosen one of my favourite indipop songs of the new millennium. The song is ‘Jahaan Ho Pyaar Ka Mausam’ (2002) rendered by the all-girls VIVA Band consisting of Seema Ramchandani, Pratichee Mohapatra, Neha Bhasin, Mahua Kamat and Anushka Manchanda. The song is written by Javed Akhtar which is set to music by Jatin-Lalit.

The song has a very thought provoking mukhda which has a universal appeal:

jahaan ho pyaar ka mausam
jahaan sab dilon ka ho sangam
jahaan meethi ho sab logon ki zubaan
haan
mujhe aise nagar hai jaana
main aisa nagar dhoondh loongi kahin na kahin

 When I heard this song recently after a long gap, it immediately struck me that the mukhda of the song was very apt for our Blog. For me, our Blog is the place where there is an atmosphere of love, union of hearts and minds. And where everyone speaks in a language of respect.

I should give some background about the song under discussion. In 2002, Channel [V] decided to promote pop stars in India. They started the first Indian version of the International Popstars Talent Show in 2002 in which 5 girls got selected. They formed a band named as VIVA. Their first album, VIVA produced by Times Music and Channel [V] was released in June 2002 which had 8 songs, including the song under discussion. All the songs were written by Javed Akhtar but they were  set to music individually by Shankar-Ehsan-Loy, Jatin-Lalit, Sandeep Chowta, Raju Singh, Kersi Lord and Ashtosh-Dhruv. The album received a very good response and in the first year itself, sales of albums crossed 5 lakhs.

VIVA Band got split within two years of its formation despite unprecedented success of its two albums. Probably, the girls in the band could not handle their sudden fame. Later, all of them pursued their solo careers in music and the related fields.

I had watched the video of the song under discussion umpteen times on TV during 2002-03. I always liked it for its meaningful lyrics and comparatively soft musical interludes than some of other Indipops.

For those who had watched the video of the song on TV in early 2000, it will be a nostalgic experience.

Blog Day :

4005 Post No. : 15109 Movie Count :

4150

For today’s post, I have chosen a movie who’s two namesakes are already there on the blog and thanks to their popularity they have even been yippeed already. However, this 2002 release and another namesake are perhaps waiting for me to open their account on the blog.

This film like many of the movies (phenomena particularly seen in 1930s) was inspired by a play. The director Vipul Amrutlal Shah adapted this movie from his own Gujarati play Andhalo Pato (Blindman’s Bluff). He has done these kind of adaptations later as well. I feel that its certainly a good idea to adapt movies from plays, novels, short stories etc as these often have wonderful ieas in them around which screenplays can be built. A good script will always give strength to a movie. Music no doubt is important to a movie but it can only do so much alone. I hope our filmmakers today will focus more on continuing this trend of re-using good stories rather than re-using good songs to make something else out of them!

The film tells the story of Vijay Singh Rajput (Bachchan) a hard-working but temperamental man who has spent all his life working for one bank and even achieving them international recognition. When Vijay loses his mind and goes on a violent rampage beating up another employee, he is subsequently fired. He decides to take vengeance by organising a full on heist and having the same bank robbed by three blind men as no one will suspect them. The film was quite appreciated when it released.
The detailed plot was as follows:-

Obsessive and temperamental bank manager Vijay Singh Rajput (Amitabh Bachchan) loses his job for badly beating up a bank clerk who tried to embezzle money. Angered at losing his job he plots revenge on the bank by intending to stage a heist. He employs three blind men – Vishwas (Akshay Kumar), a blind person who has the power of the sixth sense, Elias (Paresh Rawal) and Arjun (Arjun Rampal) — when, after passing by school for the blind, he understands that blind people can be trained to do things like sighted people. He blackmails and enlists the help of Neha (Sushmita Sen) who is a teacher at the school to train the trio to do the seemingly impossible heist. He chose blind people because they, as thieves, would never be suspected as noone would believe blind people can rob a bank.

The bank robbery is successful, with the jewels safely captured by the three. However, in the process of robbing the bank, Elias’s face is exposed, captured in footage and prompting citywide posters with his face. Meanwhile, Mr. Rajput anxiously tries to extort information from Vishwas and Arjun regarding the jewels and their location. Unable to answer, as they did not collect the items, they try to defer the answer by changing subjects. Ultimately, it is revealed that Elias is the one with complete knowledge of the box’s belongings. Meanwhile, tensions rise between Rajput and Neha; the latter resists the abusive nature of Rajput and his obnoxious harassing of Vishwas and Arjun. Arjun confesses his love to Neha, who reveals that she is associated in the plot only for the well-being of her younger brother, Rahul, who has been kidnapped by Rajput.

In a furious attempt, the police try to locate Elias. Elias lands up at Rajput’s place after getting drunk. Rajput tries several ways to force Elias into revealing the location of the box. Unable to generate an answer, he slams Elias, who falls on the ground and injures his eyes, causing bleeding. Even in this scenario, Rajput tries to get the information, but Vishwas and Arjun resist and claim that they will reveal the location if Elias is treated by paramedics. Rajput sends them to get Dr. Siddiqui. Vishwas senses that Elias is in danger and Arjun and Vishwas double back to the training center to save him. Rajput starts to harass Elias by tickling him to force him to reveal the answer.

In the action, Elias falls off the balcony and dies. Unable to bear the shock of the death, Neha pulls a gun on Rajput and threatens to reveal everything to the police if he does not leave her and the other two alone. Rajput notifies Neha that all these acts were done under her training, and he is spotless. Unable to bear this fact, Neha shoots herself, just as Vishwas and Arjun return after hearing loud screams.

Both men gang up on Rajput and try to attack him. Once Rajput realises that the men are ignorant about the jewels, he starts shooting them. The police arrive, and confusion ensues. Vishwas and Arjun come out and claim that Rajput is abusing them while he claims that there is a big conspiracy involving the two men, Neha and Elias. Unable to believe that blind men can ransack a bank and amidst Rajput’s impassioned defence, the police start getting suspicious. In the heat of defending himself, Rajput reveals that he had sent over Elias, thus confessing his crime.
In the end, Rajput has been locked away. Vishwas and Arjun decide to take care of Rahul and ultimately find the jewels – they were hidden in Elias’ musical instrument.

This would appear as the typical Hindi film end where the evil man ends up in jail. However, old timers may be remembering the curious case of Bandini having two endings being shot. As told in Bioscope ki Baaten on Vividh Bharti’s pitara programme long back Bimalda could not decide what end to give the movie. One option was to send Nutan’s character to hear new beau played by Dharmendra and the other was for her to go to her old love Ashok Kumar. As per announcer Kamal Sharma who hosted it as per my memory, Bimalda shot both the endings and showed it to a selected audience (perhaps the distributors??) who decided that the ending where She goes to side of the ailing Ashok Kumar would be more apt.

However in this movie’s case, the film makers had another ending in mind which was released in the overseas version! In the overseas viewers version, Rajput bribes the cop (Aditya Pancholi) and is set free, in return to get him his share and gets his manager Bhandari (Ajit Vachani) arrested. Vishwas and Arjun are sitting in a train (waiting for it to depart) and Rajput is standing on the platform with a smile on his face. He then warns them that “A dangerous game is about to begin”, after which Vishwas and Arjun both draw their guns, and the film ends.

Perhaps the film makers felt that overseas audience would better accept the corrupt angle while also leaving room for a sequel which never happened. Obviously, the alternate ending overseas version was longer in length too.

Interestingly, when the movie released, the pirated movies would often come via the Dubai route and in India, people going to cinemas and watching it at home were seeing the different endings! The movie was a big hit. I especially loved the way Sushmita Sen matched up to Amitabh Bachchan during her very effective role. Its sad that we have got to see so less of her in films. Bollywood, She hasn’t been seen since Chingaari (2006). Are you listening??

Before, I come to the chosen song itself, I must mention a very curious case of P-stats for the song. One man who “appears” as if He is yet to make his debut on the blog as far as one can see has not yet made his debut on the blog is making his debut with this song post. What’s interesting is that He’s making his debut on the blog as a singer, a composer as well as what he’s most known as – a Lyricist! Another interesting thing is that his co-composers in the song are a well known composer duo as well as a talented, now sadly deceased, solo composer. So this song for which he has written the lyrics has four composers! That’s quite rare must say!! I was surprised when I first discovered this and had to get hold of the “record” i.e. the CD to confirm the same! This gentleman has not only been a singer, composer and lyricist but also contributed to films as a dialogue writer as well as an actor!
You can see the CD for the credits here on Amazon.

I hope I have made you curious about the identity of the artist! You’ve probably heard some songs of his. He’s known for reviving Bambaiyya style songs in films like Ghulam (1998) and Satya (1998). For many years he was in demand for his Bambaiyya lyrics! His name is of course Nitin Raikwar.

How he came to write probably his biggest hit which kick started his lyricist career is a quite interesting incident. The year was 1996. Actor and filmmaker Neeraj Vora recommended that he go and meet ‘Mr Perfectionist’ Aamir Khan. Aamir was shooting on the sets of Ghulam at Sanpada in Navi Mumbai. He needed someone to write some funny shayaris for a character in his next film Sarfarosh. When Nitin reached there he found that due to some technical slag the whole unit was on standby while it was being rectified. Seeing Aamir free, Nitin went up to him and requested him to give a listen to one of the songs he had written. Aamir heard it and immediately called the director Vikram Bhatt. They both found the song unusual but nice. That song which got included in the movie was ‘Aati Kya Khandala’ which became a super duper hit (It was sung by Aamir himself with Alka Yagnik. Its not yet on the blog and I’m reserving it for a future post by me. Me. Me. Peevsie’s mom and other’s please note 😀 ). This song will probably feature in any playlist of Bambaiyya Hindi songs.

He was to follow it up with many hits. One of these is already on our blog. That is the famous Apun Bola Tu Meri Laila from Josh (2000) which has already had a post by Peevsie’s mom nearly 6 years back on 20th August here:-

In the tagging it has got miscredited to Sameer (who also wrote for the movie) and thus it became his “secret debut” on the blog (the writeup does mention him in one place!). The correctness of the credit can be easily seen on the CD here

Some of his other popular songs include Excuse Me Kya Re (from Style 2001) and Khallas from RGV’s Company (2002). He penned for many more movies being sought out for the Bambaiyya flavour. He was also called for children’s movies like Chhota Chetan (1998) and Jajantaram Mamantaram (2003).

He talked about all this in a 2017 interview with Mid Day.
To quote from it:-

Writing in tapori language was a skill that Raikwar developed after he moved to Mumbai from Pune in 1987. By then, he had already tried his hand at singing in orchestras, something his father wanted him to do since he was a successful show organiser. “But I didn’t see myself singing in orchestras all my life. I was aware of the risk and struggle involved in Bollywood, but I was adamant to make it,” he says. With little money to spend, Raikwar’s story reads like that of so many others who move to Mumbai from smaller towns to try their luck. “When a man is struggling, he spends time with people who are like him. So I would sit at chai tapris and talk to rickshawallas, drivers and daily wage labourers. Because I’m talkative and an extrovert by nature, I could strike up a conversation with just about anyone. That’s how I picked up the slang,” he says. Even when he didn’t have projects, Raikwar would write and seek feedback from his friends, some of whom were already working in the film industry as supporting actors. And it’s through their assistance that he finally met Anil Kapoor on the sets of Ladla. “I consider that the turning point in my life. Anil Kapoor felt I had potential and introduced me to directors and filmmakers,” he says. Raikwar’s first song was Teri Tirchi Nazar Main Hai Jaadoo for Anil Kapoor-starrer Loafer in 1996. But it was Aati Kya Khandala that earned him fame like no other. In fact, it helped him bag a Shah Rukh Khan film soon after. “I remember writing Apun Bola in 15 minutes after I heard the script. I wanted it to reflect Goan culture so I included words like kokum curry. You’ll also find words like ‘hoinga’ and ‘karenga’, just the way a Catholic aunty would say them,” he says.

In 2014, Raikwar had to put all work on the backburner for two years due to an illness. It began with bouts of headache, and he was later diagnosed with subdural hematoma of the brain. “The clots had to be removed through surgery. For a long time, I couldn’t work because of the illness. I’m fine now, and hope to get back to what I do best,” he says.

“I think what worked for me at that point was the novelty factor. People dig variety. For instance, we may love our vada pav, but when the burger made an entry in early 2000, we started queuing up for it. It’s the same with songs,” he says. These days, Raikwar is working on his debut album for which he has collaborated with Shrikant Ahire, one of Maharashtra’s foremost shadow dancers. He plans to release a single from it next month. The song is called Khan Sahab Apne Ladke Ko Sambhal. “I thought I’d write in a manner that people identify with. I can’t write in a flowery and larger-than-life way. It’s not me.”

For some reason, the album and song are yet to release though the 2017 interview suggested it would happen soon. No other work from him has come too as far as I can see.

Coming to the song post, It’s a very danceable song composed by our composer ‘quartet’ of Nitin Raikwar, Aadesh Shrivastav and Jatin-Lalit. Joining Nitin Raikwar sing in the movie are Aadesh Shrivastav himself and Actor/Singer Arun Bakshi who you all stalwarts probably already know about from his multiple movies. Written in his usual tapori style, the song for me at its core is quite a philosophical song asking one to not worry about our troubles and that we will one day have everything we want. The song has a nice uplifting mood to it that I love to listen when feeling a bit down sometimes. The feelings of the song somehow remind me of Manna Dey’s rendition of ‘Door Tera Gaon Ho, Thake Tere Paaon Hon Chalta Chal’ from movie Fashionable Wife (1959) which too I am fond of.

Here is the song for you all Bambaiyya Hindi lovers:-

Its picturised on Akshay Kumar, Arjun and Paresh Rawal. The song had become quite an anthem in those days just like today we have Apna Time Aayega but probably in a larger way. A view of the youtube comments of the song will prove that.

Karan Arora says, “My dad is a GM in maruti showroom now……. But 15 years ago…we had a financial crisis…He had to work as a driver under an advocate….we use to live on rent in one room of a govt. Apartment. I was 5 years old At that time.. Jab bhi main dukhi hota tha….he always use to say ” fatela jeb sil jayega…. Jo chahega mil jayega….. Tere bhi din ayenge chhote…. ” to encourage me… But us time esa lagta tha ki future hi nahi hai hamaara…but here we are… Living happily now… So I’m just sharing my story with you guys to encourage everyone who’s struggling in life right now….. Abhi main tum log ko kehta hoon “fatela jeb sil jayega… Jo chahega mil jayega…. Tere bhi din ayenge chhote”……bs rukne ka nahi…. Chalte raho…. 💙💙💙”

Saurabh Mahambrey says, “If three blind guys can sing about a better tomorrow and successful rob a bank …. You can do anything 😂😂😂”

Enceladus says, “2019 anyone 😂 this song is for eternal struggle”

Shubh Patil says, “Best way to get rid of anxiety attacks.. 2019 still here😁😁”

CRT says, “Whenever I feel down, I remember this song. And half of my tension goes away 😃”

Ansh Patil says, “Iconic song.. Amazing movie.. Specially Paresh Rawal rocks”

Shubham Hatekar says, “This song encourages me more than “Apna Time ayega”. Anyone feels same.”

I certainly feel the same. Stay motivated and keep going. You are stronger than the sum of all your troubles. Never forget that.

Blog Day : 3900 Post No. : 14950

When I was in school, we had some “boring” subjects like, History, Geography, Social Science etc. These were “arts” subjects and were considered low scoring as well.

When I think about it now, I realise that History text book basically used to be like a collections of a few chapters and each chapter was like a story of a particular era. For instance, first chapter was Ramayana. second Chapter was Mahabharata. Third chapter was Mauryavansh (Chandragupta Maurya , Samrat Ashok etc. A few chapters later, we were into Mughal era (Akbar, Shahjahaan etc, and then British Era.

In British era, we had discussion on freedom struggle. In freedom struggle, we basically read that non violent movement by Mahatma Gandhi earned India their freedom. There was passing mention of Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Subhash Chandra Bose etc as well.

Then we were told that British were defeated by the non violent movement of Gandhi and they gave India independence, but at the last moment, they played a dirty trick and divided the country into two.

Many decades on, when we can gain information from sources other than test books published by the government or gooverment approved publishers, we can have a more holistic picture of things as they unfolded. We now have access to other sources as well as so we can form our own opinion on what was happening those days.

It could be seen that the country, like now, had people with different ideologies and people followed their own ideologies. There were followers of Mahatma Gandhi, but then there were followers of other leaders as well. We have seen that Subhash Chandra Bose had a tremendous following. And his philosophy of gaining independence for India was different from that of Mahatma Gandhi. Since history is written by “victors” and somehow Mahatma Gandhi’s non violent movie has been credited as the reason for India gaining independence so Indian freedom struggle has been penned accordingly.

When one thinks about it dispassionately, one realises that British were no saints who would somehow be shamed by “non violent” movements and would grant independence to India out of shame. There were many factors that made it increasingly difficult for them to continue to rule India. It was a combination of all these factors that finally broke the back of camel and Britain finally granted independence to India and left at the earliest opportunity.

The major cause why Britain left was that two world wars had taken place and it had taken a heavy toll on Britain financially. Britain was the sole superpower of the world before the first world war. After the end of the second wold war Britain was economically on the verge of collapse. They had to take loan from USA the new superpower of the world to keep their economy afloat.

India had contributed a good number of armymen to fight the world wars for Britain. It was the understanding that Britain would grant Indian independence after the world war.

Moreover, with Media (radio, newspapers etc) becoming influential, world opinion was turning in favour of freedom of India and it was becoming difficult for Britain to hang on to its colonies.

When we look at history, we find India was becoming ungovernable from early 1900s, because there were many cases of armed resistance from all over the country.

Not all freedom fighters were moderates. There were radicals as well. In fact , there was a trio of radicals popularly called Lal, Bal, Pal- viz Lala Lajpat Rai, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, and Bipin Chandra Pal. They incidentally, belonged to three major regions of the country and helped spread their message of armed struggle in their regions. Taken together, that was almost entire India. They advocated civil agitation and direct revolution to overthrow the British Empire.

British Government divided Bangal province and that caused widespread resentment among people. The protest against it was violent and quite a few protests died, some in police custody (viz Brahmabhandav Upadhyay) while some were hanged (Khudiram Bose, Bagha Jatin).

Then Draconian Rowlatt act was passed in 1919. Protest against this act led to the Jallianwala Massacre on 13 april 1919. The main perpetrator Dyer was forced to retire but he was hailed as a hero in Britain. Whatever goodwill Indians had for British government evaporated totally.

During 1920s, several armed resistances happened all over the country. One of the more prominent of them was Kakori Case (1925) in UP. Government treasury was looted while it was being carried in a train. In this case, three revolutionaries, namely Ramprasad Bismil, Rajendra Lahiri, Raushan Singh and Ashfaqullh.

It is noticeable that such activities were happening all over India, and in all these cases some people were prompmtly being found guilty and were being sentenced to death, no less. So many people were sentenced to death those days that the claim of Indian freedom fight being mostly non violent does not sound too convincing.

On March 23, 1931, Bhagat Singh along with his associates Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru were hanged to death for the killing 21-year-old British police officer John Saunders. They mistook Saunders for Superintendent James Scott, who was responsible for leading a lathi charge against Lala Lajpat Rai, who along with his followers was protesting against the Simon Commission.

Lala Lajpatrai was mortally injured in a Lathi charge on him by police led by Superintendent James Scott, when Lala Lajpatrai was leading a protest march against Simon Commision. Death of Lala Lajpat Rai stung Indians. Bhagat Singh, Bhagat Singh along with his associates Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru decided to avenge it by killing James Scott, but instead they killed 21-year-old British police officer John Saunders.

The case was heard on the court of Lahore Case Tribunal from 5th may 1930 and death penalty was pronounced on 27 october 1930.

Bhagat Singh along with Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru were hanged to death this day 88 years ago (23 march 1931).

Several movies have been made on Bhagat Singh. In all these movies, the song “Mera rang de basanti chola” gets played prominently. In these movies the three revolutionaries are seen marching to the gallows while singing this song (or while this song plays in the backgound).

Here is this song from “The Legend of Bhagat Singh”(2002). This song is sung by Sonu Nigam and Manmohan Waris. Sameer is credited as the lyricist, though this lyrics could well be a traditional song. Music is composed by A R Rahman.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day :

 Today we remember the great son this soil Sardar Bhagat Singh (28th September 1907 – 23rd March 1931), on his birth anniversary.

We remember him for his bravery, courage, determination and supreme sacrifice made for a cause of the people, the people of this country.

He laid down his life at a young age of only 23 years, 5 months, and 25 days. He could have surrendered to the British and chosen a leisurely life enjoying the benefits and luxuries showered by the Britishers on him, had he requested to forgive him as proposed by them. However instead of choosing ‘the life of slavery’ he chose to dedicate his life for the ‘noblest cause – the freedom of his Motherland’ from the Britishers.

He will remain the inspiration for many as long as humanity exists and people read about him and realize what Bhagat Singh was and how great was he to have done so much in one single life of only 23 years.

I have earlier presented my thoughts while presenting the songs ‘Pagdi Sambhaal Jatta’ and ‘Vekho Loko Khidan To Pehlon’. Whatever will be written about him to remember him and his thoughts, is very less in comparison to the legacy he has left for us. And I am sure as the coming generations read about him will find his thoughts still relevant in terms of what his dreams of ‘true freedom’ for India was and what we have achieved after getting our ‘freedom’ – and they will find that yes, we have still miles to go to build this nation in the pursuit of those dreams.

As I have mentioned earlier in my posts the year 2002 was a special year as in that year there were as many as three movies released on the life of Bhagat Singh.

  • 23rd March 1931 Shaheed
  • The Legend Of Bhagat Singh
  • Shaheed-E-Azam

While “23rd March 1931 Shaheed” and “The Legend Of Bhagat Singh” were released on the same date the other movie “Shaheed-E-Azam” was delayed and was released at a later date.

I will not go into which one amongst them was better than the other. The important thing is that they were made on the life of Bhagat Singh and to make people aware of his true story (may be with a little or more filmy touch).

Today I present a song from the Rajkumar Santoshi directed ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh-2002’. This movie was produced by Kumar Taurani and Ramesh Taurani (of TIPS). It had the star cast of Ajay Devgan, Sushant Singh, D. Santosh, Akhilendra Mihsra, Raj Babbar, Farida Jalal, Amrita Rao, Mukesh Tiwari, Surendra Rajan, Saurabh Dubey, Kenny Desai, Sitaram Panchal, Bhaskar Chatterjee, Sunil Grover and others.

The screenplay was written by Rajkumar Santoshi, Piyush Mishra and Anjum Rajabali. It was edited by VN Mayekar. Songs for this movie were penned by Sameer and music was composed by AR Rehman.

All songs of this movie composed by AR Rehman are very very good and I liked them as they fill us with patriotic fervour and with a poignant touch, yet making us thoughtful on the life and times of the martyrs and their feelings for their motherland.

Today’s song is in two parts and is sung by AR Rehman and Sukhwinder Singh.

Let us listen to this wonderful song now …

Desh Mere Desh Mere Meri Jaan Hai Tu …

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 11
———————————————————————

All right, the occasion demands that I write a post.  It is the tenth anniversary of the blog, ek post to banti hai. 🙂

So like all things transient, whether one is or isn’t the world moves on.  Time and tide wait for none.  I said this to my brother a few days ago.

Is it all make believe ?

What is real here ?

What exactly is happening ?

What are we doing here ?

What is the purpose of all this maya jaal ?

Anyways let me delude all and sundry that any of this matters.

Checking the date of my last post in the blog, I realise it is almost 2 years ago.  I really didn’t mean to deprive the blog of my ramblings for so long, whether it makes sense or not.

As always there is no dearth of bollywood songs.  My search among celebratory songs kept coming back to this one from ‘Hollywood/Bollywood’ (2002).  This movie is Canadian production directed by Deepa Mehta.   This is a light hearted love story, containing just the right dose of drama, songs at regular frequency, with almost black humour, of Dina Pathak mouthing dialogues such as “I am not here to bury Ceaser, but to praise him”. How did they manage not to draw the curtains after this one ? Not an easy task, this editors job. This, in the last 10 minutes of the movie.  No need to say there never was a chance for  anymore goals in the game.

So here is the song, a firm favourite of the last decade. Both the lyricists and music director are new names for the blog. The singing by Sonu Nigam and Alisha Chinoy is very peppy and infectious with a spontaneity which makes this song special.  This also reaffirms my belief that Sonu Nigam is the true disciple and carries the torch for Rafi  Sahab’s singing legacy.

Congatulations on the 10th anniversary of the blog to all involved.  Thanks to Atul ji and Sudhir Sir, it feels good to write about things and nothings.

sitaron se aage jahaan aur bhi hain
abhi ishq ke imtihan aur bhi hain
 
tihi zindagi se nahin yeh fazaayein
yahaan sainkadon kaaravaan aur bhi hain
 
qanaa’at na kar aalam-e-rang-o-bu par
chaman aur bhi, aashiyaan aur bhi hain  
 
agar kho gaya ek nasheman to kya gham
muqaamaat-e-aah-o-fughaan aur bhi hain
 
tu shaaheen hai, parvaaz hai kaam tera
tere saamne aasmaan aur bhi hain
 
isi roz-o-shab mein ulajh kar nah rah jaa
ke tere zamaan-o-makaan aur bhi hain
 
gaye din ke tanhaa thaa main anjuman mein
yahaan ab mere raaz-daan aur bhi hain
