Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 25

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This discovery of a repeat song will have to be termed as Mother of All Repeat Songs. And just in case, before you start wondering whether poor dear me has decided to take a step off the deep end, let me explain.

Ostensibly searching for something else totally disconnected with repeat songs in Hindi films, I chanced to read this caption on a YouTube link. The face in the thumbnail image is neither Bharat Bhushan or Shashi Kapoor. And so, intrigued as I was, I clicked on the thumbnail with the face of R Madhavan, to play this song whose caption was sounding so very familiar. It turns out, yes, it is a repeat song – a repeat of the very endearing and a must-have favorite from the 1969 film ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’. This signature track has been the theme of many an amorous message of love for the connoisseurs of the Hindi film music.

Ah, but the story of my discovery had just started. I checked out the name of the film. Turns out it is ‘Dil Vil Pyaaar Vyaar’ from 2002. I track down the Wikipedia page of this film. I had not heard of this film earlier. The story line weaves around the romance lives of young friends. Seemed like a run-of-the-mill rom-com tales that abound the landscape of the Hindi film world. An immediate analogy that came to mind, from the era familiar to me, was ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’ of 1957. Similar theme, romance tales of three young friends.

Ah but what wonderful and divine music that film has. I will not dwell on the delightful music created by the legendary Madan Mohan – I am sure all readers and friends are already very much taken in by the songs of that film from 1957.

Getting back to ‘DVPV’ (‘Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar’), I was thinking – seems like the producer of this film did not have much imagination to engage song writers and MDs to create some fresh songs. So he chose to easy route to re-use this song.

But as I continued down the Wikipedia page, and reached the Soundtrack section, my eyes remained agape in wonder. The film has 13 songs listed. And (OK now, hold your breath) – ALL, I repeat ALL songs are repeats of earlier hit songs of the 60s to 80s time period. Looking closey at the list, the second realization, and a big one, hit home. ALL the thirteen tracks are creations of RD Burman. Now this discovery surely something great and different.

A little more research and I am able to locate more information online. The producer of this film is a diehard fan of RD Burman and the music created by him. And this film ‘DVPV’ has been created as a tribute for his favorite MD. So, a story and a screenplay was conjured and 13 of RDB’s famous hits have been woven into it.

The producer of this film is Vivek Vaswani. As it turns out, he himself is the author of the story line of this film. The screenplay has been adapted from the story by Sujit Sen.

Of course the credits for the song will remain with the original creators. But for this film, the music for the songs has been re-arranged and re-recorded by Babloo Chakravorty. So all songs in this film are recorded in different voices.

Ah yes, in case you are wondering – yes, I plan to bring on board all the thirteen songs of this film, in good time. Quite a bonanza here for this series.

This wonderful song from ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’ has been re-recorded in the voice of Hariharan. On screen, it is performed by R Madhvan. I am sure all are familiar with this new name. My introduction to Madhavan has been through the 2009 hit film ‘3 Idiots’. I will try to say more about this film and its performers, in subsequent episodes, as I venture to cover all the songs of this film.

Other actors we see in this clip are Asrani and Namrata Shirodkar. The wonders that a song can do has not changed across the decades that Hindi films have been created, exhibited and watched. It has only become better, more imaginative and more incredulous. In the very early days of this blog itself, Atul ji had come to a conclusion, and he has so documented it in many a write up. That a situation in Hindi films takes about 3 minutes or so to be transformed. All it takes is a song. The song starts in a particular mood, with a particular expectation, and by the time the song ends, the desired mood and desired outcome is achieved and the expectations realized. In many earlier such discussions, we have seen quite wondrous and amazing things happen during the duration of a song.

With this song, things are no different. Rather, the stretch on the gullibility of comprehension is a bit too much. Madhavan is on a stage, participating in a music competition. Things to be noted about the setting. The stage where the performance happens is designed like a music CD. And the effect is complete with the singer handling a very old fashioned standing microphone. The antics Madhavan attempts with this mike takes us even further back to Elvis Presley performing live on stage, back in the 1950s.

His lady love, Namrata, is at the airport, already checked in for a flight that will take her thousands of miles away to another country, away from her beau. And voila. A ‘strategically’ placed TV screen within her view starts to telecast the music competition just as Madhavan is to present his song. The song starts. It is the replay of the famous aria – this one, from ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’.

All it takes in one stanza for the lady love to make up her mind to abandon her plans to leave the country, and she decides to go back into the beckoning arms of her lover. The second stanza is even more wondrous. The lady exits from the airport, starts to drive to where the competition is in progress. And, another VOILA – this time in capital letters – she drives through the Bombay traffic, with all her memories about times spent with her lover replaying on the mind’s screen, reaches the location and is on stage with her lover, by the time the second stanza comes to a close. And yes, even has time for a change of attire. The applause by the audience is still in progress as she makes an entrance through a hazy and foggy doorway, with the director making utmost efforts to make it appear like a fairy descending through the clouds.

I remember having seen a cartoon long long back advising filmgoers to please leave their logic and reasoning outside the door, when entering a cinema hall to watch a Hindi film (or maybe any film for that matter).

So mission accomplished. In less than three minutes, from the verge of just starting to board her flight, the lady love makes it from the airport to the competition stage and into the arms of her lover.

Long be loved – the wondrous Hindi film song. Yes, all it takes is a song.

Song – Tum Bin, Jaaun Kahaan. . .  (Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar) (2002) Singer – Hariharan, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – RD Burman
[Music rearranged by Babloo Chakravarty]

Lyricsa

tum bin jaaun kahan
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin

dekho mujhe sar se kadam tak
sirf pyaar hoon main
gale se lagaa lo ke tumhaara
bekaraar hoon main
tum kya jaano ke bhatakta fira
kis kis gali
tum ko chaah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin

rah bhi sakoge tum kaise
ho ke mujhse judaa
hat jaayengi deewaaren
sun ke meri sadaa
aanaa hogaa tumhen mere liye
saathi meri
sooni raah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa kabhi
tumko chaah ke…
tum bin

तुम बिन
जाऊँ कहाँ
तुम बिन
जाऊँ कहाँ
के दुनिया में आ के
कुछ ना फिर
चाहा सनम
तुमको चाह के
तुम बिन
जाऊँ कहाँ
के दुनिया में आ के
कुछ ना फिर
चाहा सनम
तुमको चाह के
तुम बिन

देखो मुझे सर से कदम तक
सिर्फ प्यार हूँ मैं
गले से लगा लो के तुम्हारा
बेक़रार हूँ मैं
तुम क्या जानो के भटकता फिरा
किस किस गली
तुमको चाह के
तुम बिन
जाऊँ कहाँ
के दुनिया में आ के
कुछ ना फिर
चाहा सनम
तुमको चाह के
तुम बिन

रह भी सकोगे तुम कैसे
हो के मुझ से जुदा
हट जाएंगी दीवारें
सुन के मेरी सदा
आना होगा तुम्हें मेरे लिए
साथी मेरी
सूनी राह के
तुम बिन
जाऊँ कहाँ
के दुनिया में आ के
कुछ ना फिर
चाहा सनम
तुमको चाह के
तुम बिन

Hullo Atuldom

We are into the last month of 2021. This is my first post for the month, and we have a few super-actors celebrating their birthdays this month. Also, there are a few actors, who are no longer amidst us, whose birth anniversaries are in December. Here is hoping that I get the inspiration to write for each of those dates.

But today’s birthday is not of any well known film star. It is our very own Ben Katie’s birthday. We wish her a very Happy and Musical day. May we see more of her on the blog-space.

This post sees the 2002 released, Rahul Dholakia directed, Neeraj Vora written (dialogues), Kishore Dadlaney- Lal Dadlaney produced romantic-comedy “Kehtaa Hai Dil Baar Baar” making its debut on the blog. It had songs written by Sameer which were tuned by Jatin-Lalit.

It had a cast headed by Paresh Rawal who played an egoistic, over possessive father to two lovely daughters. There is a lot of Mayhem when he discovers that one of his daughters (Kim Sharma, a doctor in the film) declares that she is in love with a man who is not a “Patel”. Further investigation by the father reveals that the prospective son-in-law (Jimmy Shergill) is neither a property-owner nor a professional. As if that was not enough to ruffle the fuming father’s feathers it turns out that the person is a mixed-blood Indian viz. part-Punjabi, part- South Indian (“Madrasi” as people who are unaware of the different states in south of India would like to say). This leads to a lot of hot-weather between Jimmy and Paresh Rawal which is definitely entertaining and I must say that it didn’t look ‘gross’.

I remember (vaguely) that there is a scene in the movie where Patel (Paresh Rawal) is shown to be organizing the catering for his other daughter’s (Namrata- played by Toral Mehta) wedding. That scene helps establish the kind of calculative mindset of ‘Roger Patel’ possesses. By the way, ‘Roger Patel’ is the Americanized version of Ranchod Rai Patel who likes to call himself ‘The Roger Patel’.

Neena Kulkarni, Ranjeet, Johnny Lever were also part of the cast. Today’s song shows us Neena Kulkarni- the loving mother- leading a set that approves of the match between Kim and Jimmy. The lively song has Gujarati and Punjabi words and even the tune has flavour of both the states. We can see Paresh Rawal is unmoved (he is one versatile actor, isn’t he? 🙂

This song shows us what potential Jimmy Shergill had and could have been a success in commercial movies too considering the handsome looks and sense of rhythm as far as dance is concerned. He was very good in displaying his emotions too as could be seen in the characters he played in movies like the Gulzar directed “Maachis” (1996), Yash Chopra’s “Mohabbatein” (2000) and some more from the Yash Raj stable.

Recently I had seen him in movies like “Happy Bhag Jayegi” (2016) and its sequel “Happy Phirr Bhag Jaayegi” (2018) both of which showcased his comic timing. I must admit that I liked what little I have seen of him in movies.

Incidentally, 3rd December happens to be his 51st birthday -here is wishing him lots of luck and good movies that allow him to show his full talent. By the way, he belongs to a family of immense talent. His paternal great aunt was the famous Indian painter Amrita Sher-Gil.

This song is in the vocals of Udit Narayan and Shraddha Pandit (some sites have mentioned that Poornima is the female playback, need confirmation).

Let us also wish Udit Narayan (belated, he turned a year older on 1st December). He has been in the music industry since 1980. He has had opportunity to sing with the legends Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar. Success came his way after a long struggle, in 1988 to be exact, when ‘Papa Kehte Hain’ from ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ ruled the air-waves and popularity charts.

He began his singing on Radio Nepal with Maithili and Nepali songs. He moved to Mumbai in the 80s and his debut was in the 1980 release ‘Unees Bees’ which had Rajesh Roshan wielding the baton, this was the song where he got to sing with Mohd Rafi. He has sung for even Dev Anand in ‘Swami Dada’. He is the recipient of 4 National Awards, 5 Filmfare Awards, and Padma Shri.

I am sure the followers of the blog will understand why I chose this song to go with this post. 🙂

Once again wishing our Ben Katie – naamkaran for Khyatiji done by our Sudhirji- a Very Happy Birthday.

It can be seen from the table of 2002 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 8 songs in 2 movies released in 2002.

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

alphabetically, the first movie of 2002 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to discuss is “Laal Salaam”(2002).

This movie was produced by Sanjiv Karambelkar and directed by Gaganvihari Borate for Manas Communications. The movie had Nandita Das, Sharad Kapoor, Makarand Deshpande, Vijay Raj, Rajpal Yadav, Anant Jog, Akhilendra Mishra, and Sayaji Shinde, Introducing Hemangini (Indroduction role), Vishwajeet Pradhan,Sushil Johri,Dwarika, Mahindra, Jyoti,Prithvi Singh,Sanjay Sonu, Ashraf, Ramayan, Nagesh Bhosle, Lallan Singh,Sanjay Shrivastav,Sivam,Anup, Subrow, Parveen Banu, Sumanth Chandramani, Uday Tikekar, Pramodini etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs had the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in them.

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

Only the audio of the song is available. It is almost certain that the song was picturised on Nandita Das.

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

With this song, “Laal Salaam”(2002) makes its debut in the blog.

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

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

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

23rd March 1931 Shaheed

The Legend of Bhagat Singh

Shaheed-E-Azam

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

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

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

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

Shaheed – 1965 ( pagdi sambhaal jatta on 28.09.2013)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.05.2002.

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

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

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

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

Today 23rd March 2021 is the ninetieth remembrance anniversary of martyr dome of Sardar Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru. They were hanged to death by the British regime on 23rd March 1931.

On this occasion as a tribute in remembrance of these great sons of this soil here is a song from the movie ‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ (2002).

As I had mentioned in my earlier post on the blog, in the year 2002 there were three movies released on the life of Bhagat Singh;

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

I would like to reproduce here what Dharmendra expressed about this movie his home production, (as appearing on the blurb of the audio cassette);

It is not the first time in the history of Indian Cinema that a film has been inspired by India’s favorite revolutionary. And quite honestly, it might not even be the last. This Sikh youth of character so powerful and deep represents the meaning of true patriotism and fearlessness to one and all. It can be assured that every time a movie is made on Bhagat Singh, not one person leaves the cinema hall carrying the same heart with which he arrives. It is not just his sacrifice that moves you; his biggest revolutionary thought and his smallest patriotic action, stir your blood inside. Bhagat Singh cannot be imitated, no matter how impressed you might feel. And yet, the one reason he chose death over life was to create a thousand of his kind so that each one of them could bear the depth of the same patriotic fervor to serve their country.
– Dharmendra

I was staying at Bareilly when this movie was released in 2002 and I had watched both the movies simultaneously i.e. ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’ and ‘23rd March 1931-Shaheed’. I remember both the movie were welcomed by huge crowds in their first week of release and thereafter ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’ had a good run on the box office, better than the today’s movie.

‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ was directed by Guddu Dhanoa for ‘Sunny Super Sound Presentation’. It was produced by Dharmendra.

It had Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Amrita Singh, Rahul Dev, Akshay Anand, Vicky Ahuja, Divya Dutta, Raja Bundela, Suresh Oberoi, Shakti Kapoor, Vivek Shauq, Samaresh Rautrai, Indal Singh, Sanjay Tripathi, Tej Sapru, Rajesh Khera, Deepak Sharma, Suresh Chatwal, Sachin Khedekar, Manoj Tiwari, Rana Jung Bahadur, Ishrat Ali, Imran Khan, Master Atit, Master Honey and Aishwarya Rai (in friendly appearance).

Screenplay of this movie is written by Sutanu Gupta and Dialogues of this movie are written by Sanjay S. Masoom Editing of this movie is done by Keshav Naidu. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.05.2002.

This movie has seven songs, written by Dev Kohli. The song “Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna” by Ramprasad Bismil was included in the movie and with it the total number of songs makes it to eight. Songs in this film are sung by Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Vinod Rathod, Hans Ran Hans (as per titles of the movie) and Bhupinder Singh, Mohd Salamat and Veer Rajendra (as mentioned in the blurb of the audio cassette of this movie and in addition to the names mentioned in the titles of the movie).

Today’s song is sung by Veer Rajinder and lyrics are by Dev Kohli. This song is in two parts (or may be three parts) in the movie as per video links available in the domain.

With the today’s song this movie ‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ (2002) makes its debut on the blog.

Let us now listen to the today’s song. . .

‘Vadh’ (2002) seems to have become an obscure film by now. Even though the film belongs to 21st century when the marketing through mass media has been the order of the day to promote the film, I do not recall having seen any such marketing blitzes for this film.

On-line searches revealed that it was a low budget film belonging to the genre of ‘suspense murder mystery’. A box office report suggests that the film was a ‘disaster’ as it earned about 50 per cent of the cost of production of the film. I guess, the absence of a well-conceived marketing of the film may have resulted in the prospective film audience not well-informed about the film. Otherwise, why should a film with Nana Patekar should get such a lukewarm reception at the box office? Probably, the low budget did not allow the makers of the film to indulge in high marketing blitzes.

‘Vadh’ (2002) was a maiden venture of Dilip Dhanwani who was in the film distribution business based in Mumbai. The star cast consisted of Nana Patekar, Anupama Verma, Puru Rajkumar, Meghna Kothari, Nakul Vaid, Sambhawana Seth, Arun Bakshi, Raju Mewani, Sweta Menon etc. The film was directed by N.S.R – the abbreviation for Nana Patekar, Rajesh Singh and Raj Bharath, respectively. Raj Bharath was entrusted with directing the film. However, due to alleged interferences by Nana Patekar, he left the film after which the Rajesh Singh was entrusted with the film’s direction. He also left the film on the same ground. Probably, producer thought it better to entrust the direction to Nana Patekar if he wants his film to be completed without any further delay.

The credit title of the film mentions that ‘it is a film by Nana Patekar for Dilip Dhanwani’. This shows as to how much Nana Patekar was involved in making of this film. This alone made me interested in watching the film, the DVD of which was available on one of the video sharing platforms. I watched this film in a single sitting as I found the film engrossing. The build-up of suspense till the last was superb. I could not guess as to who could be the murderer of three victims in the film which was attributed to a serial psychopath killer.

The gist of the story of the film is as under:

Dr, Arjun Singh (Nana Patekar) is a Psychiatrist who is attached to a mental hospital. He has a late marriage with Jyoti Singh (Anupama Verma) who is much younger than him. Dr. Arjun is very protective about his pregnant wife and loves her. His younger brother Vijay (Nakul Vaid) is a police inspector attached to Crime Branch who is in love with Meghna Kothari, the daughter of the Police Commissioner (Arun Bakshi).

In the mental hospital, there is a serial psychopath killer who has been kept in solitary confinement due to his violent behaviour. One day, the serial killer runs away from the hospital by breaking open the grilled door of his room. In this process, he kills three guards of the mental hospital by slicing the throats with ‘X’ slicing marks on the faces of the victims. This is his trade-mark killings. The police forces are looking out for the serial killer as this has created a panic among the residence.

Aryan (Puru Rajkumar) is a childhood friend of Dr. Arjun who is rich and a charming playboy. He spends much of his time in revelry and visits bars and clubs. He prefers casual relations with his girl-friends including the married ones and has no intention of marrying any of them. Dr. Arjun’s wife, Jyoti is also involved with extra marital relation with Aryan.

Soon after the running away of serial killer, one of the girl friends of Aryan is found murdered in her house. While the Crime Branch and Dr. Arjun think that the murder is a handywork of the serial killer with his trade-mark style of killing, Inspector Vijay has a doubt on Aryan as his visiting card is found in his murdered girl-friend’s house. After few days, another girl-friend of Aryan is found murdered in the same style which come to the light when Aryan visits her house. The presence of Aryan in the house makes Vijay confident that it is Aryan who has killed his girl friends in the same style as that of the serial killer so as to wood-wink the police in thinking that it is the work of the serial killer. Inspector Vijay arrests Aryan but due to lack of evidence against him, Aryan gets bail.

In the meanwhile, both Dr Arjun and his wife Jyoti are under threat from the serial killer. as they find ‘X’ mark in blood has been put on faces in their photo-frame. As a precautionary measure, Police Commissioner shifts them to a more secured place with a Commando attached to their new residence. Inspector Vijay ensures that he is present in the house when his brother, Dr. Arjun is on hospital duties.

Despite the security, one day, Jyoti finds that their personal Commando has been murdered in the same fashion as those killed by the serial killer. She gets the panic attack thinking that she and her husband would be the next target of the serial killers. A police team headed by the Police Commissioner visit to scene of the crime. To his horror, Inspector Vijay finds that his brother, Dr Arjun’s dead body is floating in a swimming pool with Jyoti murdered in her room with the same trade mark killing style as that of the serial killer.

The film ends with Police Commissioner taking a vow that he would not leave that mad serial killer and he would find him.

At the outset, the end of the film appears tame. This is because, I have not revealed the suspense part of the film just in case those who had not watched the film and are interested in doing so. The murder mystery has been solved as far as the film’s audience is concerned but for the police in the film, the case of the serial murders is yet to be solved.

The USP of the film is that the director has been successful in keeping the suspense in the film till the last. In fact, he has build-up the suspense as the film story progresses. However, this USP was not sufficient to make the film successful at the box office.

This film belongs to Nana Patekar from start to finish. There is no long and high-pitched dialogues for him as we are used to see him doing so in most of his films. He has a normal dialogue delivery and a restrained performance. Anupama Verma has done a conventional role of a house-wife which she has performed better than what she has been performing in her pop song videos. The suspense effects of the film have been well supported by the background music of Sanjay Chaudhary.

The weakness of the film is that it is too long for a suspense thriller. The film could have been easily condensed within the duration of say, 1 hour 45 minutes instead of 2 hours and 10 minutes to make it sleek for viewers. For example, there was not need to have two club songs of about 5 minutes durations just to support the playboy image of Puru Rajkumar. Such type of songs become distraction in a film which is trying to build-up the suspense. Probably, these two songs were included as a part of box office attractions. But the way these songs were conceived and presented, it would not have been a surprise if even front-benchers had taken a break by walking out of the theatre hall when these two songs were shown on the screen.

I also felt that there was no need for a romantic sub-plot of Inspector Vijay (Nakul Vaid) and his fiancée, Meghana Kothari. In fact, the role of Meghna Kothari is redundant in the film. On top of it, the pair have one song of about 5 minutes duration which appears to be forced upon the film.

And lastly, I missed the presence of N A Ansari type of a character in the film which would have added some aura around him, enhancing the suspense to the murder mystery.

‘Vadh’ (2002) has 6 songs, a high number for a suspense thriller. Except one, none of the song has pleased my ears. I am presenting the only song out of six which I liked and the song is ‘bahut khubsoorat hai aankhen tumhaari’ rendered by Jagjit Singh. The song is written by Nida Fazli which is set to music by Vishal-Shekhar. The song is picturised on Nana Patekar and Anupama Verma.

With this song, ‘Vadh’ (2002) makes its debut in the Blog.

Today, August 16, 2020 is the 2nd Remembrance Day of Atal Bihari Vajpayee (25/12/1924 – 16/08/2018), the former prime minister, one of the greatest statesmen, a nationalist, a good orator and a poet.

The political career of Atal Bihari Vajpayee has been an open book and it does not require an elaborate discussion. Suffice to say in brief that at the age of 18, Atal Bihari Vajpayee became politically active by participating in Quit India Movement of 1942 and was imprisoned for one month. In 1957, He became the member of Lok Sabha for the first time at the age of 33. From 1967 to 1984, he continued as a member of Lok Sabha without any interruption. Again from 1991 to 2009, he became the member of Lok Sabha. With nearly 5 decades of experience – both from the opposition and ruling parrties’ sides, one can gauge the vast political knowledge he had gathered to be rightly called as ‘Bhishma Pitamah’ of Indian politics who was admired by both the ruling and opposition parties.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee was known for his hard-hitting speech as a member of the opposition. But his speeches always remained within the boundary of political rivalry on ideological platforms and did not spill into personal enimity. It is because of this quality that Atal Bihari Vajpayee commanded the respect of all the prime ministers he faced in the Lok Sabha and of members of the opposition when he was the prime minister. In his very first terms in Lok Sabha during 1957-62 as a member of the opposition parties, Pandit Nehru, the then prime minister, was very much impressed by his debating skills. Once, he introduced Atal Bihari Vajpayee to a visiting foreign dignitary as a young and dynamic member of the opposition and he predicted him to be India’s future prime minister. His prediction came true after 40 years.

Let us recall a couple of examples in support of what has been stated above. During the Vote of Confidence motion in 1996 in Lok Sabha, Atal Bihari Vajpayee as a prime minister had quoted an instance that happened in the Rajya Sabha in November 1962 during the discussion on Chinese aggression in October 1962 :

It is not that I did not have disagreements with Nehru ji. These disagreements came out strongly during debates. In one of such debates I called Nehru’s personality and character as a mixture of Churchill and Chamberlain. (Neville Chamberlain, the Prime Minister of the UK from 1937-40 was highly criticised for his appeasement policy with Adolf Hitler. Winston Churchill was the prime minister who led the English to victory against Nazi Germany in the Second World War). Despite the comparison to two of the most controversial and critiqued world leaders, Nehru did not get angry. Later that evening, I ran into Nehru ji at a banquet in honour of a visiting foreign dignitary. He called and congratulated me for giving a rousing speech in the Rajya Sabha and he left smiling.

In 1994, when United Nations Human Right Commission at Geneva was to discuss a Pakistani resolution to label India as human right violator in Jammu & Kashmir, the then Prime Minister, P V Narsimha Rao chose the leader of the opposition, Atal Bihari Vajpayee as the leader of the Indian delegation to defend India. The Pakistani resolution was defeated. The fact that Narsimha Rao selected Atal Bihari Vajpayee as the leader of the delegation rather than other senior leaders from his party like Salman Khurshid who were part of the delegation, speaks volume about the calibre of and confidence reposed on Atal Bihari Vajpayee by then prime minister.

It is not known when Atal Bihari Vajpayee turned a poet. Whether it was the poet in him that pushed him to the politics or vice versa. He had said once that ‘he was poet by instinct and the politician by accident’. He had a literary bend of mind if we go by his association with magazines such as ‘Rashtradharma’, ‘Panchjanya’ and the newspapers like ‘Swadesh’ etc, during his younger days. Probably, he may have started writing poems during the the Quit India Movement of 1942. On August 15, 1947 when India got indepedence and people were celebrating the freedom from British Rule, Atal Bihari Vajpayee wrote the poem in a sombre mood:

पंद्रह अगस्त का दिन कहता
आज़ादी अभी अधूरी है।
सपने सच होने बाकी है,
रावी की शपथ न पूरी है॥

जिनकी लाशों पर पग धर कर
आज़ादी भारत में आई,
वे अब तक हैं खानाबदोश
ग़म की काली बदली छाई॥

The people of India at large came to know Atal Bihari Vajpayee also as a poet after his release from the Bengaluru Central Jail in 1977 following emergency. In his one year of life in the jail, Atal Bihari Vajpayee had written many poems in the pseudo name ‘Kaidi Kavirai’, some of which used to be smuggled out of the jail, translated in Kannada and pasted on the walls of colleges in Hubbali and Dharwad. ‘Kaidi Kavirai Ki Kundalian’, the collections of poems written by him while in the jail has been published. These poems belong to satirical and inspirational genres. An example of one of his satirical poems which he wrote while when he was ill in the jail:

डॉक्टरान दे रहे दवाई, पुलिस दे रही पहरा।
बिना ब्लेड के हुआ खुरदुरा, चिकना-चुपड़ा चेहरा।
चिकना-चुपड़ा चेहरा, साबुन, तेल नदारत।
मिले नहीं अखबार, पढ़ेंगे नई इबारत।
कह कैदी कविराय, कहां से लाएं कपड़े।
अस्पताल की चादर छुपा रही सब लफड़े।

But post-emergency years, Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s poems have become more visible than before. In some of his political rallies, he had started reciting his poems probably realising that poems of 6-8 lines have more impact on his audience to draw his point of view than a longer speech.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s most popular and an inspiring poem, kadam milaakar chalna hoga has been included in class-8 textbook along with the poems of Hazari Prasad Dwivedi, Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, Surykant Tripathi Nirala, Ismat Chugtai, Harishankar Parsai etc for 2019-20 onwards.

When Atal Bihari Vajpayee was admitted in a hospital in New York in 1988 for his kidney check-up, doctors had suggested kidney operations. That whole night, he could not sleep. During that night, the poem, maut se than gahi was born.

Another poem of Atal Bihari Vajpayee which I like is hari hari doob par. The last six lines sums up the philosophy of life which say that the sun will rise again and there will be sunshine. But I will not get to see the dew drop on the green carpet of grass of my garden in all the seasons:

सूर्य तो फिर भी उगेगा,
धूप तो फिर भी खिलेगी,
लेकिन मेरी बगीची की
हरी-हरी दूब पर,
ओस की बूंद
हर मौसम में नहीं मिलेगी।

To quote Bhagwat Goyal who has translated Vajpayee’s poems in to English, Atal Bihari Vajpayee believed that “politics and literature cannot belong to separate compartments. Rather they enrich and refine each other. When a litterateur gets involved in politics, his politics gets more refined. Similarly, if a politician has a literary background, he cannot ignore human feelings and emotions.” I have watched some of the important proceedings of the Lok Sabha in which I saw his speeches both as a Prime Minister and as a member of the opposition. To me, his speech sounded like a mix of statesmanship and literature like the one below.

The game of power would continue. Governments would come and go. Political parties would be formed and dissolved. But the country should survive and democracy should remain there forever. The debate (on Vote of Confidence Motion) would come to an end but the chapter which would start from the next day needed to be pondered over. The bitterness should not increase.

On the occasion of Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s 2nd Remembrance Day, I present one of his poems, ‘apne hi mann se kuchh bolen’ (2002) which has been turned into a non-film song composed and sung by Jagjeet Singh. The video of the song featuring Shahrukh Khan and Atal Bihari Vajpayee was produced by Saregama which was directed by Yash Chopra. The song is preceded by a preface read by Amitabh Bachchan, which was written by Javed Akhtar. This song is a part of an album, ‘Samvedna’ (Sensitivity) containing six poems written by Atal Bihari Vajpayee which have been turned into songs composed and sung by Jagjeet Singh.

The poem is philosophical one. It says that let the heart speak. Let it measure what has been gained and what has been lost. In one of the antaras, the poet says that earth is millions of years old and life is eternal. Elders may give a blessing of 100 years of life (sau sharadon ki vaani) but body has its limit. So, one should be ready to open the doors on the last knock.

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

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
