In 2003 this was a very popular song.  They would constantly play this song on FM channels.  We had kept a small FM radio in the office, and usually it was kept on from mid-day, when all the urgent work of the section was done.  Rest of the work could be handled while listening to songs on FM radio. Listening to it many times, tends to make transcribing the lyrics, an easy task. Analyzing the words and their meaning is not so simple.

I thought the word was “udtaa hua wo. . .” in this line “girtaa hua woh aasman se. . .

girtaa huaa woh aasmaan se aa kar gira zameen par
khwaabon mein phir bhi baadal hi thhe wo kehta raha magar

There is the act of ‘falling’ twice in one line.  The poet could mean, that once the fall starts, it stops only when you reach the earth.  It would also mean that falling from a great height, i.e. aasmaan, only rock bottom will stem the fall.

Similarly, there is very interesting simile used in this first line:

toota toota ek parinda aise toota
ke phir jud na paaya
loota loota kis ne uss ko aise loota
ke phir udd na paaya

The bird is broken,
Never to be whole again
Who has done this great pillage,
So, the bird can never fly again.

kho ke apne par hi to
uss ne thha udnaa seekha
gham ko apne saathh mein le le
dard bhi tere kaam aayegaa

It learnt to fly,
Only by losing the wings,
Hold your sadness close,
The pain also will be useful.

tukde tukde ho gaya thha
har sapna jab woh toota aa
bikhre tukdon mein Allah ki
marzi ka manzar paayegaa

When the dreams are shattered to pieces
Arrange those pieces, to find
A new scenario with Allah’s will.

When dreams are broken, wishes are denied, it is always because Allah has willed something better and different for you.

girtaa huaa woh aasmaan se
aa kar gira zameen par
khwaabon mein phir bhi
baadal hi thhe
wo kehta raha magar
Allah ke bande hans de
jo bhi ho kal phir aayegaa

Falling down from the skies
It fell to the earth,
His vision full of clouds
Kept on the refrain,
O Allah’s faithful, laugh
Tomorrow is a new day
There is hope.

Now I know, why it is not ‘udtaa hua’, but ‘girtaa hua…..’.

This is a great motivational song for when the chips are down.  This was the first song of Kailash Kher, which made him famous.  I always thought that this is a private album song, but it is actually a film song from the film ‘Waisa bhi hota hai – II’.  This is supposed to be a sequel to ‘Aisa Bhi Hota Hai’.  Both these movies have passed me by.  I am not sure if I have seen ‘Aisa Bhi Hota Hai’, but I am sure about ‘Waisa bhi hota hai – II’.  Vishal Dadlani is the lyricist and composer with his partner Shekhar. The credits of this movie have a long list of lyricist and music directors and singers.  It also has a longish line of actors.  It seems that the film’s making is a pool of multiple strugglers in different fields of film making, who were trying to get a foothold in the industry at that time.

Kailash Kher is playing himself in the film singing this song.  So this is also a singer actor song.  Another trivia is that Rabbi Shergil also played himself and performed his own song on the screen in this film.

Song – Allah Ke Bande Hans De, Allah Ke Bande (Waisa Bhi Hota Hai II) (2003) Singer – Kailash Kher, Lyrics – Vishal Dadlani, MD – Vishal Shekhar

Hullo Atuldom

A song from a new movie (by the standards of this blog) for the listening pleasure of followers of this blog.

‘Hungama (The Ruckus)’ is a 2003 release – nearly 20 years old already –  that was produced by Venus records and tapes and directed by Priyadarshan. One of the many that Priyan (as his friends in the South address him as) remade from Malayalam hits. It was a remake of Priyans’ Malayalam ‘Poochakkoru Mookkuthi’ (meaning A Nose-ring for the Cat) which was itself a remake of the Telugu movie ‘Gopala Rao Gari Ammayi’ which had elements borrowed from the plot of Charles Dickens ‘The Strange Gentleman’.

‘Hungama’ had Rimi Sen, Akshay Khanna, Aftab Shivdasani as the youngsters and Paresh Rawal, Shoma Anand, Shakti Kapoor, Neena Kulkarni, Rajpal Yadav, Tiku Talsania, Upasna Singh, Sanjay Narvekar, Manoj Joshi, Razzaq Khan, etc. and Malayalam film actor Jagadish in a minuscule role of Paresh Rawal’s housekeeper. The movie had music by Nadeem Shravan for songs written by Sameer. Babul Supriyo, Shaan, Sadhana Sargam, Richa Sharma, Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan, Abhijeet, Sonu Nigam and Kumar Sanu were the playback singers used.

The movie revolved around the confusion caused by two characters having the same name. Both Shoma Anand and Rimi Sen are called ‘Anjali’. Then, the conning of Kachra Seth (Shakti Kapoor) by Anil Singh claiming to be Paresh Rawal’s son Munna Tiwari (Sanjay Narwekar) adds to more confusion. Plus, there is the usual love triangle which gives us romantic songs. But, for me, the highlight in the movie is where Shoma Anand doubts her husband (Paresh Rawal) of having a relation with Rimi Sen and Paresh Rawal doubting his wife as her character undergoes a change the minute she lands in their city-home. As if to add fuel to fire Akshay Khanna keeps visiting their house and asking for Anjali (meaning Rimi Sen) which Paresh construes as Anjali (Shoma Anand).

As can be seen from the above, Paresh Rawal was the main character in this movie, just as he was in many of Priyadarshan’s Hindi movies ‘Hera Pheri’, ‘Hulchul’, ‘Chup Chup Ke’, ‘Bhagam Bhag’ and a few more, all of which I have seen more than once. Today we are wishing this versatile actor on turning 67 (is he really that old, unbelievable).

Today’s song happens at a party thrown by Anjali (Shoma Anand) for her birthday where both Anjali (Rimi) and Akshay Khanna are uninvited guests. But the husband and wife feel that the other has invited their new ‘friend’ and fantasize the two dancing with their new-friend. Sadhana Sargam and Shaan are the singers who have been invited to entertain the people at the party. A very cute song which is nice on the ears.

Song – Chain Aapko Mila Mujhe Deewaangi Mili (Hungama) (2003) Singer – Shaan, Sadhna Sargam, Lyrics – Sameer, MD – Nadeem Shravan

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

ey hey hey hey

chain aap ko mila

Hullo Atuldom

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hullo to all in Atuldom

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is wishing this singer a healthy and happy future.

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

Lyrics

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

Bharat Mata Ki Jai)

Saathiyon tumko miley ae

jab tumse milke khiley
paao tum itni khushi ee
mit jaayen saare giley ae ae

jab aman ki baansuri ee
goonje gagan ke taley

This is a song for the rainy season. I have the lyrics noted with me since last year’s rainy season, but the post never got written. This is from the film Chameli (2003), which has 6 songs and Sunidhi Chauhan is the singer in all of them. Two are duets and the rest 4 are solo songs. This rain song is one of the solos. Sandesh Shandilya is the composer and lyricist is Irshad Kamil. This must be a record of sorts for the new millennium, one singer singing in all songs. Today is 14th August and it is Sunidhi Chauhan’s birthday. Can’t say for sure that there is no better song for celebrating the event, but the song is quite good. Sunidhi Chauhan is very versatile and has made a name for herself in her field. She has followed the footsteps of Alka Yagnik and a predecessor to Shreya Ghoshal. There was enough scope for many singers to work and make a name.

I was meant to watch the film for writing the post, but that was not to be. So, I have not seen the film, and as far as I know, I have seen only this song. The other details are available (here. This was a hit song and was all over the FM channels when the movie was new. Come to think of it, it sounds as if it is very new song and not 17 year old. Meaning it has fallen on unsuspecting ears all through the 16 years. For the last one year, this has been growing on me. Now it has come of age and time for it to arrive on the blog.

Kareena is singing this song in the rain and it is clear that she is a prostitute, in the movie.

The other day I read this post by Atul Jee . In this post he gave some highlights of Munshi Premchand’s life. Munshi Premchand’s literary contributions I was aware of since school days, through lessons in text books. It is an appreciable quality that he practiced what he preached in terms of women’s rights. A belief has to be translated into deeds, only than it is a belief otherwise it is hypocrisy. I can imagine how difficult it was for Munshi Premchand to go against the society norms and marry a widow in those times. But I dare say, for a large section of the population of undivided india, this was no crime. Widow remarriage, divorcee remarriage all was legally allowed for them. A part of the illiterate population may not have known about those rights, is another matter, being a socio-economic problem.

India’s struggle of independence was a revolutionary period in many aspects with society struggling with changes and newer values.
The struggle for women’s rights is a classic case study, in my opinion. And we have lost the game in our developed sense of rightness.
Over the centuries, women demanded voting rights, got them. They wanted property rights, got them. They want to be treated as an equal; they are getting there all the time. Right to divorce, right to re-marry etc. the list is endless.

But all through this so called cultural revolution and great emancipation of women in the last one century, one indignity, which I consider an ultimate insult to womanhood, has been blatantly allowed to flourish. A woman who is the mother of mankind is made to suffer this atrocity as a ‘profession’. It is a legalized profession in many countries of this modern world. By what law and rule of justice and fraternity, is this explainable or excusable? This is the social development the human race has achieved in 3+ millennia of recorded history.

All great religions of the world, all the prophets, all the emperors and kings, all just and unjust rulers of the civilized world, have taken their bow. And who among them was ever able to ensure a just and dignified life to women?
Where women were not made to suffer such humiliating life,
Where women had property rights and voting rights,
Where women had right to divorce, remarry and conjugal rights,
Where there existed a system for social security equality for all including women and their children, which more than adequately provided for all their needs, legally, without having to compromise on dignity and self-respect.

Everyone knows that ‘prostitution’ is a social evil. But has any one ever taken a step to eradicate it?

Many poets have raised the issue, and received accolades for his efforts. But poets can only show a mirror to the society, society has to make the correction itself. The poets alone cannot do it for the whole society.

Saahir said : Sansaar ki har ek besharmi, gurbat it god mein palti hai….
This is no longer true in our social set up of the modern world.

Some social reformers might have tried to oppose this practice, but there is no end to this, as far as the eye can see. The answer to the questions is available within this universe. One only needs to have eyes and ears and sense to find it. The universal rules of economics apply here, but calling it the oldest profession in the world will not suffice.

The civilization has made no progress in my opinion, as this most degrading of all social-economic condition is allowed to prevail. We the citizens of this world are responsible for this.

May be it is time that the civilization looks at this issue in the morally correct and humane way. It is less a women’s issue and more a social issue.

I have digressed enough now. Coming back to the song, let us enjoy this song as a song for “barsaat ka mausam”.

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is that time of the year again. Time to celebrate another landmark of this beloved blog by all the members who contribute to it. Congratulations to the blog, its members and readers for hitting the 15K landmark.

I tend to ‘wake up’ only during the celebrations, though I like to keep afoot of the blog, not as much as I used to. Time was when I was tethered to a chair and computer for eight hours a day when I was working. There were many hours to be whiled away at times and it was easy to read the blog more often. Now that I am retired and a new member of Grandparents Club, I find less time to sit at the laptop. I often read posts on my mobile and find it hard to post comments from there. Nevertheless, it is still my number two most visited blog. Number one is my own blog, sorry, heh heh.

From something that was once Atul ji’s hobby, posting a song a day, this blog has burgeoned into a treasure trove of information. Various contributors keep the blog humming and it now has two fathers, Atul ji has been joined by Sudhir ji. This makes it easier for the blog to keep growing. There are a number of regular contributors, Arunkumar ji Deshmukh is the Bhishm Pitamah of the blog. Nalini ji is passionate about the blog, commenting and writing posts. Sadanandji, Avinash ji, Nahm ji, Mahesh ji, Satyajit ji, Gajendraji, Satishji are some of the other stalwarts. Raja is a personal friend of mine as well as the co-mentor of the blog. Forgive me if I have forgotten the names of other contributors – my memory is shaky post-retirement. 🙂

What do I love most about this blog? Number one reason is the sheer amount of information I gather by being here. Number two is the consistency of high standards in keeping the posts original and error free. Number three is the liveliness of the blog, the constant refreshment of content.

Hindi film music is a vast ocean, no, it is more like the skies that are endless. Luckily for the lovers of this blog, there will always be new songs and new posts to keep us occupied.

Now about this song. When new movies are promoted on television, they are accompanied by one or two big songs from the film. It becomes the signature song for the movie. Hence we get to know the popular songs from each movie and hum it more often. Yet there are often hidden gems within the songs of each movie, less popular but more beautiful. We do not hear them unless we watch the movie and are struck by it or listen to the complete playlist. ‘Haasil’ has a signature song too, “Ankhen Bhi Hoti Hain Dil Ki Zubaan”. But I am struck more by this song – “Ab Ghar Aa Ja”, a classical number which plays in the background during a poignant passage in the film.

‘Haasil’ (2003) was directed by Tigamanshu Dhulia and featured Jimmy Shergill, Irfan Khan and Hrishita Bhatt. College politics and gang war in Allahabad form the backdrop in which Jimmy and Hrishita meet and fall in love. Unfortunately, Jimmy becomes involved in the gang wars between two student leaders and is forced to flee to Mumbai. But soon he realises that he cannot keep hiding and lose his girlfriend in the bargain. He decides to return to Allahabad and face the consequences.

This song plays when the hero is traveling back to Allahabad from Mumbai in a train. The picturisation is very apt, the hero is pensive as he misses his girl, also because he knows he is soon going face danger. His mood is reflected in this slow classical number.

This song will debut the movie ‘Haasil’ on the blog. If I am not mistaken, singer Javed Ali debuts on the blog too. I hope you will like the song as much as I do.

Browsing through this blog today, my eye fell upon a song category which was “chai song”. The word chai makes me think immediately of one of my best friends ever, lets call her V. We worked in the same office, but it took another common friend who worked elsewhere to introduce us. My friend H got to know her and upon finding out where she worked immediately called me up and said “You must go and talk to this girl called V, she is truly bindaas, you will like her.”

Today (8th February) is the birthday anniversary of Jagjit Singh. On this occasion, here is a ghazal sung by him.

The ghazal is from a movie that is quite new by the standards of this movie. Mr Sadanand Kamath, who sent me the lyrics of this movie allayed my fears by assuring me that the song does have the familiar old world feel about it which we are used to in the songs that are discussed in this blog.

I am of the opinion that most great Bollywood songs on any topic were created before 1980. After 1980, there was a steady deterioration in the quality of such songs where lyrics took the back seat and plagiarised “disco” tunes replaced erstwhile tunes.
