Hullo Atuldom

May 3 is not any celebrities birthday going by the listings on the anniversaries page of the blog. But a more important date for followers of movies. That was the date when the first Indian movie released in the year 1913.

“Raja Harishchandra” directed and produced by Shri. Dhundiraj Govind Phalke a.k.a Dadasaheb Phalke, was a silent film that released in Bombay’s Coronation Cinematograph and Variety Hall, Girgaon on 3rd May 1913 after a Premier at Olympia Theatre on 21st April. This was the genesis of the Indian Film Industry which has been entertaining generations since then. The movies, as we have come to love, has thrown up stories that are inspired from our mythology, history, real-life experiences etc. There are fans for a “Jai Santoshi Maa” as well as “Sholay”. I remember that when the Malayalam movie “Swami Ayyappan” came to the theatres in Bombay (it had hit the marquee in 1975 in Kerala) Manoj Kumar’s “Kranti” had also released and our family chose to see the Malayalam movie as it gave us an insight into the life and times of the lord Ayyappa.

Today we are having a song, from a movie, whose title is inspired from a famous song of the late 70s. The director of the movie was a person who has grown up in the film industry (so to say) as he is the son of a famous producer-director. The cast is headed by a fan of movies who himself has a huge fan-following.

I am talking of a song from the 2008 released “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi” (meaning “Match made in the heavens”) which was written and directed by Aditya Chopra, son of Yash Chopra who was also the producer of the film. And I need not add that Yash Chopra was a successful producer- director who began his innings in the film industry in the 50s. The movie had a cast headed by Anushka Sharma and Shahrukh Khan.

Today’s song happens when the lead pair have gone to see movie. “A cinema inside a cinema” as I would like to put it. The lady- Taani (Anushka) is bored with the proceedings on the screen. Then she imagines that one of her acquaintances has jumped on to the screen and then the whole atmosphere perks up. He says: “Taani partner do not fear when Raj is here. Humne bhi Ishq ke ustaadon se seekha hai” (I think those are his exact words). And then the song starts.

IMHO this song can claim to be fully inspired by all the preceding generations of actors and actresses. We have Shahrukh Khan and Kajol beginning the song as Raj Kapoor and Nargis, this is followed by Shahrukh as Dev Anand and Bipasha Basu as Sadhana. Then we have Lara Dutta as Helen to Shahrukh’s Shammi Kapoor act which is followed by Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore by SRK and Preity Zinta. The song has SRK and Rani Mukherjee reminding us of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh. So basically we go down memory lane as we see this song and try and relive the 50s, 60s and 70s.

I must complement the lyricist Jaideep Sahni for coming up with a song that had to have pre-existing words/lyrics/thoughts. One must not miss how “Babu Moshai” has fitted beautifully into the song. Also worth mentioning the art director’s and set designer’s contributions. They have done so much detailing- we should not miss the book that Preity as Sharmila Tagore is trying to read. It is called “Amar Prem” and has a photo of Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore from “Aradhana” in the song ‘Kora kaagaz tha ye mann mera’. Also we should not miss the huge Raj Kapoor hat at the start of the song as also the Dev Anand Cap, the eye from where the Shammi Kapoor segment starts and finally the long scarfs/mufflers that Rishi Kapoor used to sport and the steps that he and Neetu were exponents of. We should not forget the choreographer too. The composers Salim-Suleiman have also showed that they have also grown up on this fodder. They had an unenviable task of making a song from the music that was tuned by the legends of Bollywood and also not make a bad rehash.

Let us also enjoy this tribute to the great Ustaads (masters).

P.S: After I wrote this post I realized that 3rd May also happens to be Nargis’s death anniversary. It is 39 years since her passing and it was Dadasaheb Phalke’s birth anniversary on 30th April 1870- 150th birthdate.


Song-Hum hain raahi pyaar ke phir milenge chalte chalte(Rab ne bana di jodi)(2008) Singer-Sonu Nigam, Lyrics-Jaideep Sahni, MD-Salim Suleman

Lyrics

(awaara)
(Awaara)

(music uses awaara’s signature tune)

pyaar huwa ikraar huwa
jeena yahaan marna yahaan
inn baahon ko
inn raahon ko
chhod ye chhaliya jaaye kahaan
maana dil toh hai anaari,
yeh awaara hi sahi
are bol radha bol sangam hoga ke nahin
har janam mein
rang badal ke
khwaabon ke pardo pe hum khilte
ham hain raahi pyaar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte
hey
ham hai raahi pyaar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte

(here “Yeh dil na hota bechaara” tune is used)

dil ka bhanwar kare
kare pukaar jab
pyaar kisi se hota hai
jiya o jiya kuchh bol do
ab dard sa dil mein hota hai
tidli yoo
tidli yoo
oo tere ghar ke saamne ghar banaaunga
toota hi sahi
pal bhar ke liye koi humein pyaar karle
jhootha hi sahi
jhootha hi sahi,
haay jhootha hi sahi ee
har janam mein
rang badal ke
khwaabon ke pardo pe hum khilte ae
ham hain raahi pyar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte
ham hain raahi pyaar ke ae
phir milenge chalte chalte

yaahoo

(here “o haseena zulfonwaali” tune is used)

oh haseena
zulfonwaali jaane jahaan
chaahe mujhko
junglee keh de saara jahaan
ho mehfil mehfil tu phire,
yaahoo yaahoo dil kare
mehfil mehfil tu phire,
yaahoo yaahoo dil kare
badan pe sitaare lapete huwe
har janam mein
rang badal ke
khwaabon ke pardo pe hum khilte
ham hain raahi pyaar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte
hey
ham hain raahi pyar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte

babu moshai ( Rajesh Khanna’s voice)
(here the tune is “sapnon ki raani kab aayegi tu)
hooo hehe haaa
hey jai jai shiv shankar,
kaanta laage na kankar
chaahe kuchh kar le zamaana
mere jeevan saathi
mere sapnon ki rani
zindagi safar hai suhaana
hey kuchh to log kahenge,
na suna keejiye
hey chain aaye mere dil ko
duwa keejiye
hey har janam mein
rang badal ke
khwaabon ke pardon pe hum khilte ae
ham hain raahi pyar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte
hey
ham hai raahi pyar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte

papa papapa paaa
papa papapa paaa
zu zu zu zuuu zuuu
zuuu zuuu zu zu zu

(here tune is from “bachna ae haseeno”)

darde dil darde jigar,
zamaane ko dikhaana hai
darde dil darde jigar,
zamaane ko dikhaana hai
hum kisi se kum nahin hai,
tujhko yeh bataana hai
ye waada raha,
oh meri chaandni ee
har janam mein
rang badal ke
khwaabon ke pardon pe hum khilte
ham hain raahi pyar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte
hey ham hain raahi pyaar ke ae
ah ah ah

ae ae ae ae
aa chalte chalte
hum hain raahi pyaar ke ae
phir milenge chalte chalte

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 6
———————————————————————

Hullo to all in Atuldom

A special occasion calls for a special post – this was a point to be kept in mind when writing a post to mark 10 years of our pet-blog. It should not sound like any of the posts that I had written for the blog’s anniversary in the last few years- another thing to take care of.

Keeping these two main points in mind I have been ruminating about what to write for the last 20- 25 days. Added to this we get a mail from our Sudhir ji requesting the post to reach him well in advance so that posting on the blog can happen in a planned way and build-up the fervour to D-Day. And here I am on day 3653-3646 still writing.

What to write about and which song / movie to select was an issue which our Bharatbhai helped me resolve. I was glad to have been able to visit him on my recent trip to Mumbai. Sorry that it was not a four-cornered meet as Arunkumar ji was not in town and I was unable to contact Sadanand ji. I was dazed by Bharat Bhai’s passion for music irrespective of the genre though he has a soft-corner for classical, bhajans and lyrical stuff in addition to Lata Mangeshkar. And for the fifth or sixth time in my life I was awed by someone. It happened for the first time in 2014 when I visited Sudhir ji and saw his collection of music and books and music players. The feeling is repeated every time I have visited Arunkumar ji, Gajendra ji and Raja ji. Each of them has something in their dens that is eye-popping, one of the contributing factors to why I like visiting them. And I must thank Atul ji for starting the blog and bringing me in the same circle as these people.

So, as I said earlier Bharat Bhai has sowed the seed for this post and it might get to be a rather longish post if compared to all that I have ever written, so fellow-atulites please bear it and indulge me. 😊

I think I will say “once upon a time, not-so-long-ago” Atul ji started a blog by the name Atulsongaday on 19th July 2008. In that very same month, far, far away in another part of the country, a family shifted into a new city, new phase of life and a somewhat changed daily routine. Having moved into a new home the first 10-15 days just ran by in unpacking and setting up the house. In addition to helping the kids (who are now working adults) adjust to the lifestyle of the new city which is so spread out that in-spite of having more number of buses in its public transport fleet caters to fewer areas or people and make lesser number of trips as compared to our previous city – Mumbai. Then add to it the fact that suddenly the daughter and son were in different educational institutes, so different timings and work schedules fell in place. Oh, there was another thing to adjust to – the man of the house had his workplace within walking distance so after about 15 years I had the pleasure of company during lunchtimes.

When we were Mumbaikars we had developed the hobby of walking to the nearest cinema house whenever we felt like seeing a movie. This too changed in our new city – Bangalore (now the city is calling itself Bengaluru, even that has changed 😉). We found that the nearest cinema house was a good 5 kms away and was a multiplex; something we had not liked when in Mumbai as we felt that these places had hiked-up ticket charges (now multiplexes have become common and part of the movie-experience).

In the same month – July 2008 – Bollywood had about seven big releases meaning movies where a big banner, producer, director, or star – actors and actresses were involved. Namely ‘Jaane Tu. . . Ya Jaane Na’ starring newcomers Genelia D’Souza and Imran Khan; ‘Love Story 2050” with Priyanka Chopra in the lead; ‘Mehbooba’ with Ajay Devgan, Sanjay Dutt and Manisha Koirala (the last released movie with songs penned by Anand Bakshi); ‘Kismat Konnection’ with Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan; Ram Gopal Verma’s ‘Contract’ (read about this movie as I was writing this); ‘Mission Istanbul’ starring Vivek Oberoi, Zayed Khan, Suneil Shetty etc. and ‘Money Hai Toh Honey Hai’ starring Govinda, Manoj Bajpai etc.

Of these the only movie that has stayed in my memory is ‘Jaane Tu. . . Ya Jaane Na’. Probably as this was the first movie which my kids went to see all by themselves in Bangalore, all cinema-going before that used to be family-affairs as I have said earlier. Another factor for it to remain in memory is the title which came from the popular song of the 70s. Then the music by AR Rehman was a standout which appealed to the young and the young-at-heart and the lyrics by Abbas Tyrewala were meaningful too. Along with a host of young actors the movie also had some new playback singers who have since gone on to sing many popular numbers and gained popularity themselves.

So, coming back to what I was telling, this movie released in the first week of July, and it was still there in the movie halls when my children decided to see it after we had finished settling in. It might have been 19th July since it was a Saturday (just checked on google) which used to be a half-working day at their colleges and I used to allow them to go for the evening show. (Is that why the blog began on 19th, being a Saturday?) So now I hope I have established the reason I chose this movie to debut here on the blog as compared to ‘Kismat Konnection’ or ‘Contract’ (both of which had released on 18th July 2008.)

“Jaane Tu … ya jaane na” was produced by Aamir Khan and Mansoor Khan and was written and directed by Abbas Tyrewala. The cast included Ratna Pathak Shah and Naseeruddin Shah ( appearing in a photo hanging on the wall, dressed in gallant Rathore-clan outfit), Anuradha Patel, Jayant Kripalani and Prateik Babbar with a horde of young actors who formed the group of friends of Genelia and Imran Khan. Paresh Rawal, Sohail Khan and Arbaaz Khan had guest appearances. The story is about two friends who don’t realise that they love each other but the enitre world around them is aware that they are meant for each other. The movie is about how the realization dawns on the two. Oh, the movie opens with the youngsters singing (rather tunelessly) the famous song “Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Naata Koi” which just goes to show that youngsters do like the (not-so-old) song. 😊

So, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the blog, our shifting to Bengaluru and the movie itself here is the best party song that I can think of sung by Tanvi, Satish Subramaniam, Mohd Aslam, Darshana, Blaaze, Benny Dayal, Anupama Deshpande (only recognisable name).

Happy Birthday ASAD. Let us have many more such anniversaries.

 

Song – Pappu Can’t Dance Saala (Jaane Tu. . . Ya Jaane Na) (2008) Singer – Tanvi, Satish Subramaniam, Mohd Aslam, Darshana, Blaaze, Benny Dayal, Anupama Deshpande, Lyrics – Abbas Tyrewala, MD – AR Rahman

It is all about feline creatures. Cats are said to have nine lives. Who says ? Maybe some legend. It is also said that the truth is stranger than fiction. I imagine behaviorally cats are closer to humans than monkeys, theory of evolution not withstanding. Or maybe felines are the evolved human race, and in previous lives they were human, who knows. Anyway I have also heard that the civilized world is all going to cats and dogs. No kidding, this proves my hunch that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. (Note : No sleight or slander intended to cats, dogs, monkeys, humans and their assorted species).

Quiz time. What is the result of the marriage of an exceptional script writer- lyricist- poet with another script and story writer who was also a child star to add? And what happens if one adds a small amount of talented step mother whose own family is full of literary giants?

This song won the Filmfare award for Best female playback singer of 2008, for Shreya Ghoshal. Shreya Ghoshal is one find of the decade as far as female playback singers are concerned. She is here there everywhere, in all films. She has dominated the female playback scene for some years now. With Lata and Asha both almost out of contention and singing few songs, there was a gap which is filled somewhat first by Alka Yagnik in the 90’s and than by Shreya Ghoshal. I especially like her solo songs. Of course, nobody can quite dominate a field like Lata and Asha did for 40 odd years. The field is wide open now and with more competetion from all around. But Shreya Ghoshal is most talented of the lot and sounds good in all types of songs.

I haven’t seen the movie Dasvidaniya(2008), but what I have heard about it makes me want to see it. From what I have read of it, it is a story of a terminally-ill patient, who after receiving the news of the terminal nature of his illness, decides to live his life fully and to achieve ten important things in his life.
