Hullo Atuldom

Let me wish a very Happy Deepawali to one and all. Let the festival light up our lives with lots of positivity love and peace. Let the new Samvat bring in prosperity all around. In all this let us try and make the life of everyone around us happy too. Dhanteras, Naraka Chaturdashi and Laxmi Pooja starts the festive week which goes on to Bhai Dooj and ends with Chat Pooja. May there be no issues of weight gain for anyone 😉

Now there are other things that group “Atulites” is celebrating today. One of us is having his birthday. Also, birthday wishes to the daughter of another atulite. God bless them with lots of health and happiness.

A few months back we had a party song for Atulji’s birthday which asked “where’s the party tonight?”; don’t remember the reply. But here is the next party and it is a song on Bhai with Kareena Kapoor Khan in tow and the whole “mohalla” joining in the celebration. As it is the whole country is in festival mood and this song fits in for the occasion.

A confession – I knew the existence of this song which was written by Shabbir Ahmed and composed by Pritam Chakraborty. But I hadn’t heard it completely. Neither in the movie nor on any music channel. As I sat to write it for the post and heard it, I knew this was a song which our birthday boy will love as it underlines his quality of being a great host. Specially the line “aao jahaaz mein ya bharke truck se”; he will definitely say “aaj ki party meri taraf se”. Another thing which I realized is that this is the end credits- song of the 2015 Kareena Kapoor- Salman Khan blockbuster “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” which was directed by Kabir Khan. The song features the entire cast of the movie which includes Nawazuddin Siddique, Sharat Saxena, the child – who played the ‘mute central character’- Harshaali Malhotra, and all the actors who played parents to Kareena and Harshaali. Much like the whole of Atuldom wishing our Atulite and Daughter of the other Atulite on their birthdays. Gang work 😉

I am sure the regular followers of this blog have guessed who is the Atulite I am wishing. He was one of the first follower and farmaish(er) of the blog [sorry for the hinglish word and wrong grammar.] He is a doston ka dost. An occasional NRA – non-resident Atulite. A very gracious host and then he also is a fan of HFM thanks to having spent a small part of his life in that sphere of the country where Hindi films were the only source of entertainment. A Rafi fan who is addicted to Kishore Kumar’s voice too. Fan of Rajesh Khanna who learnt to love Amitabh too. Over the years his love for Sahir Ludhianvi’s work has grown that by no means, means that he doesn’t appreciate other lyricists. He loves to occasionally slip into the Punjabi way of speaking and loves to hear Urdu in songs and poetry. I am speaking of Rajaji. Wishing our dear Rajaji a very Happy Birthday.

I don’t know much about the daughter who has her birthday today. Don’t even know her name but all the best to her too. I hope, she too, will like today’s song. May she have lots of dreams and may they come true.

Happy Deepawali once again to all!!!

Today’s song is from film 102 Not Out-2018.

Readers who identify me as a writer on old films, may be shocked, as I am about to write on a New Era song, as new as not even 1 year old ! But honestly, when I accidentally bumped into this song’s credit, which said that Amitabh Bachhan was the Music Composer of this song, I was myself surprised. Out of curiosity, I found out that song on You Tube and heard/saw it. Frankly, I was not only impressed but even I liked the song. Of course, much of the liking came from seeing the wonderful video of the song- which is just superb !

Amitabh Bachhan (AB for short please) is my favourite actor. I have been seeing many films since late 40s up to the end of the year 1963 – when I began my career in Pharma Marketing. In the beginning of 1971, I heard about film Anand-71, whose songs had already mesmerised me. I went to see the film. More than Rajesh Khanna, I was bowled over by the acting of the lanky New comer (it was AB’s just 7th film) – Amitabh Bachhan. Next I saw him when I was travelling in Goa, where I saw his film Bombay to Goa-72. This was a remake of Tamil film ” Madras to Pondecherry”-66. (Remakes were made in Marathi and Kannada also.) By now, AB had taken over my senses completely and I started seeing his films-but selectively.

Zanjeer-73 (15th film) made him a star. I enjoyed his films like Sholay-75, Deewar-75, Chupke Chupke-75, Amar Akbar and Anthony-77, Trishul-78, Don-78, Satte pe Satta-82 and Coolie-83. In early 80s, I stopped seeing films in Theatres or on TV, due to my job. After that till today, I have not visited a Theatre. I do not know how a Multiplex looks like from inside. I am not proud of this, but it underlines a fact that I had lost interest in seeing the New age films and that I had low level patience. Sometimes I saw films on VCP and later Video player. The last film of Amitabh I saw was Baadbaan-2003. My most favourite film of Amitabh is Trishul-78. I had even bought its Video cassette that time.

Amitabh Harivansh Bachchan, best known as Amitabh Bachchan, was born in Allahabad, India on October 11, 1942. India was still a British colony at the time, and would not achieve independence until five years later. Bachchan’s father was the renowned Hindi poet Dr. Harivansh Rai. His mother, Teji Bachchan, was a Sikh socialite. He has one younger brother, named Ajitabh.

Bachchan went to Sherwood College boarding school before enrolling in Delhi University, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree. Once he graduated, he became a freight broker in Calcutta. After a few years in Calcutta, Bachchan was ready for a change. He decided to move to Bombay and take a stab at Bollywood show business. By this time, India had been independent for nearly two decades, and Hindi cinema was thriving.

In 1969, Bachchan made his film debut in Saat Hindustani. Although the movie tanked at the box office, Bachchan still managed to capture the attention of directors. Soon enough, the offers started rolling in.

By the early 1970s, Bachchan had garnered popularity with audiences as the “angry young man” in a series of successful Hindi feature films. His starring role in Zanjeer was particularly instrumental in launching him to stardom as an action-movie hero. Bachchan’s performances in films like Laawaris, Coolie, Naseeb, Silsila, Shaarabi and Jaadugar continued to enamor fans of the tall and handsome action hero, and also landed him multiple Fanfare Awards. From the 1970s through the early 1980s, the swashbuckling Bachchan appeared in more than 100 films. He seized opportunities to work with India’s most acclaimed directors, such as Prakash Mehra, and dominated the silver screen with films like Trishul, Sholay and Chashme Buddoor. In addition to acting, Bachchan’s roles often required him to sing.

In 1982, Bachchan had a serious accident while filming. Fans prayed for his recovery. Bachchan survived the accident, but it prompted him to change career paths. In 1984, he traded his Bollywood stardom for a seat in the Indian Parliament. His political aspirations proved to be short-lived; in 1987, he left his seat due to unexpected controversy.

By the 1990s, the limelight surrounding Bachchan had begun to fade. But his decision to start his own entertainment production company, Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited, and make himself CEO, put him back in the headlines. Bachchan followed his true calling and returned to the silver screen in 1997 with the film Mrityudaata, produced by ABCL. In 2000, he also started hosting the Indian version of the television game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. Despite a few box-office failures in the 1990s, in the 2000s, Bachchan climbed his way back up to stardom as a film actor, earning additional Filmfare and International Film Award nominations for his work on films like Baghban (2003), Khakee (2004) and Paa (2009).

Bachchan married movie actress Jaya Bhaduri in 1973. The couple have two children, a daughter and a son. Their daughter, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, is married to industrialist Nikhil Nanda, whose grandfather was the film director Raj Kapoor. Bachchan and Bhaduri’s son, Abhishek Bachchan, is also an actor and is married to actress Aishwarya Rai.

In addition to being a father and an actor, Bachchan devotes his time to charitable causes. In 2003 he was appointed a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). He has won several awards and recently the Dadasaheb Phalke award too. (biography.com).

In my recent post, I had done the analysis of Ashok Kumar’s work pattern. In that article, I had said that may be AB would overtake Ashok kumar’s statistics and the pattern. This was because both of them had a long career period – 61 years for AK and 50 years for AB, and both commanded market demand in their old age, long after their prime times in films. Today, let us see how AB fares….

Period Aproximate age Number of films done
1969-70 27-28 2 First film- Saat Hindustani-69
1971-80 29-38 62
1981-90 39-48 43
1991-2000 49-58 20
2001-2010 59-68 58
2011-2019 69-77 47

From 1981 to 2000 (20 years) he acted only in 63 films. In 1982 he met with a serious accident during shooting of Coolie film. Then in 1984, he joined Politics and became an M.P., He quit politics in 1987 and rejoined films. But by 1990, his limelight started fading and films were hard to come by. He formed his own company Amitaqbh Bachhan Corporation Limited (ABCL). In the year 2000, his fortune took a turn. He was selected to conduct a game show on TV- Kaun Banega Karodpati. This proved to be an extraordinary successful venture and his popularity soared. This also reflected in his films From 20 films in the decade of 1991 to 2000, he shot to 58 films in 2001 to 2010 period.

He remains one of the most respected actor in the film industry and is in full demand for films. AB has so far acted in 232 films. He has sung 64 songs in 44 films – though none of his songs have become a craze or popular. His first song came in film Kabhie Kabhie-76 and latest song is for film Badla-2019. I feel his golden period was when he worked with Manmohan Desai, Prakash Mehra and Hrishikesh Mukherjee. He was also benefited when he worked with 15 Screenplays and stories by Salim-Javed. it would have been 17 films, but he refused Hasth ki safai-74 and Mr.India-87 – both films were Box office Hits. Another thing. I read on Internet about his 1969 film ” Ek tha Chander, Ek thi Sudha ” starring AB, Jaya and Rekha. Was there any such film ? If anybody knows anything, please let me know. There is no mention of this film anywhere else.

Today morning (19th), I read in news that AB was admitted in Nanavati Hospital since 15th October for a Liver problem. Luckily, while I am typing this post,I learnt that he has been discharged in the morning only. I wish him good health and like this film’s title let him be 102 Not Out !!!

The film was directed by Umesh Shukla. It was based on a Gujarati story by Soumya Joshi. His next 3 films are ready for release in 2020 – Gulabo-Sitabo, Chehre and Bramhastra. This film had 6 songs. 3 were composed by Salim Suleimani, 1 each was composed by Amitabh Bachhan, Hiralal Bramhabhatt and Rohan Vinayak. The lyrics were by Amitabh Bhattacharya, who has written 308 songs in 82 films. He sang 31 songs in 18 films also. The film was released on 4-5-2018 and earned Rs 102 crores for an investment of Rs. 35 crores only. The story of the film, as per wiki, is….

Dattatraya Vakharia (Amitabh Bachchan) is a 102-year-old who enjoys life in jovial ways. Babulal Vakharia (Rishi Kapoor), his 76-year-old son, is the opposite, and believes that he is now too old to enjoy life, and detests how his father acts. Dhiru (Jimit Trivedi) is an employee at a medical shop who delivers medicine to the Vakharias. Dhiru likes Dattatraya for his attitude and is scared of Babulal because of his grumpy nature.

Dattatraya seeks to break the record of the oldest living person. and thus he seeks to avoid negative people. Therefore, he threatens to send his son to a elderly care facility unless he achieves certain conditions. While Babulal is hesitant, he accepts with Dhiru as a witness. Firstly, Babulal writes a love letter to his deceased wife. Next, he accuses his doctor of being a thief so that he stops going to the clinic daily for a checkup. While rejecting to cut holes in his childhood blanket, Babulal visits a playground and a church that remind him of childhood memories. He becomes sorrowed and distributes cake to young children in the streets with his father.

Babulal begins to appreciate his father’s outlook on life. However, Babulal receives a call from his estranged son Amol informing Babulal that he will visit India. While Babulal is ecstatic hearing the news, Dattatraya is certain that Amol’s motive is to claim their property as their heir. So he gives Babu his last task: to kick Amol out of the house for all his negligence towards his family. They argue and Babulal stops talking to Dattatraya. Even Dhiru, for the first time, supports Babulal and feels that Amol should be given a chance. Dattatraya reveals that Babu had spent all his savings to educate Amol and send him to the United States. However, Amol ignored them, telling nothing about his new family life in America. Dattatraya also tells his son he has cancer, living happily so that Babulal can live like him.

Days later, Amol arrives in India, where Babulal humiliates him in public, calling him to return home. Dattatraya passes away at 102 years of age. Babulal finds a recording of his father predicting that the record of the oldest man will be broken by Babulal himself.

When you will see this video song,I am sure you too will like it. With this song, film 102 Not out and AB as a Music Director make a Debut on the Blog.

This song reiterates, what I always say,” Not all that was made before 70 was good,same as, Not all that is made after 70s is bad”. There is always some good everywhere !

Ganpati Bappa Morya
Pudcha Varshi Lavkar Ya

Ganesh Chaturthi is the festival celebrating the birth of Lord Ganesha. It falls on the Shukla Chaturthi (4th day after Amavasya) in the month of Bhadrapada of the Hindu calendar i.e. August-September of the Gregorian calendar. Now this is common to the whole of India. And everyone has their own list of prasad that they offer to the lord. And all the panchang reading elders will tell us that when the Chaturthi starts etc and for how many days the festival will be for (usually 10) but due to the lunar calendar that is followed there will be some ghatika calculations which will determine if the festival ends on the 10th or 11th day.

But thanks to Bal Gangadhar Tilak Maharashtra has a special way of celebrating it. There the devout bring home idols and do pooja for a day and half and give a send-off to their favourite god on the next day that is on Panchmi. Then there are also those who keep the lord in their homes for five days. In between they also have a Gauri sthapana and worship the mother and son together for 2 days and then see them off on the 5th day. That day is Gauri visarjan.

Then there are the Sarvajanik Ganesh Mandals. It is here that the youth get to show their ideas of decoration, event organisation etc. The mandals dedicate themselves to various causes and highlight this in their pandals. There is the usual bhajans playing through the 10 days of the festival etc. Then on the 10th day that means Anant Chaturdashi day there is the aarathi, the final pooja and then the idols along with all the flowers used for decoration etc are taken for immersion. The large ones are on open trucks and we have all the young revellers dancing to the beat of Nashik Dhols and recorded music and the cry of GANAPATI Bappa Morya filling the air space. (Environmentalists will call it high decibels of noise pollution). And there are the large numbers of people out on the streets till wee hours of the next morning waiting to see the last huge one immerse in the sea. If I am not wrong the last one is always Lalbaugcha Raja.

Lalbaug is a locality in the old Bombay region. This is where during the freedom struggle Balgangadhar Tilak had started the practice of community worship of the Lord as a way to protest the diktat of limit on number of people congregating.

Lalbaugcha Raja has a story of its own. It seems the market at Peru Chawl was shut down in 1932 effecting the livelihood of the fisherfolk and other vendors who operated from there. These vendors vowed to Ganesha for a permanent place for their market. The collective efforts of the councillors and prominent local residents of those times the landlord Rajabai Tayyabji gave the land for the existing Lalbaug Market.

In 1934 as a thanksgiving or fulfilment of their vow (Navasa in Marathi) the traders and fisherfolk came together to start this sarvajanik pandal. Since 1935 the same family -Kambli family- has been designing the idol which has kept nearly the same “sitting pose” over the years. The idol is always around 18-20 feet tall. The parts are made at their workshop in the adjoining lane and assembled in the pandal. The grand old man of the Kambli family then comes and paints the lord’s eyes. The decoration is always contemporary and this year it was “Chandrayaan”. The visarjan procession of Lalbaugcha Raja is eagerly awaited through the lanes that it takes to reach Girgaum Chowpatty. There are special trucks, trailers and boats with pulleys that help take the idol kilometres into the sea so that it can be given a proper deep-sea immersion to match its size.

P.S.: the details about Lalbaugcha Raja are from a documentary that I saw last week on National Geography Channel.

We had the N. Chandra’s “Ankush” (1986) which used the Ganesh visarjan backdrop to show the rivalry between two Ganesh pandals and how it erupts into street fight.

In Remo D’Souza’s “ABCD- Any Body Can Dance” (2013) we had a sequence showing Ganesh Visarjan. There was this wonderful dance number and the song was true to the Ganapati Bappa Morya spirit. The movie had a collection of dance freaks who were essentially a part of Remo’s troupe most of who are independent choreographers now. in addition we have Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya, in major roles in the movie, present in this song.

I thought that this song is ideal for today. The song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan & Vishal Dadlani. The song is written by one Mayur Puri and Sachin-Jigar are the music directors. This means that this song would have qualified in the series of “Music Director singing for another music director list” that we had from Arunkumar Deshmukhji a few years back. (Both Shankar Mahadevan and Vishal Dadlani are music directors as we all know).

This is the link to the song:-

Most traditional Hindi movis are formula movies. The formula keeps changing with time and the movies made during that era have same stories based on the same formula with minor variations.

Once in a while we have movies based on real life events. One finds that movie makers try to convert them to a formula movie.

Movies during the early years post independence tended to be tragic movies with sad ends. No matter what the topic, the movie would still have the usual songs. So, when movies based on true life stories were made, they followed the same formula.

“Lahore”(1949) is one example, which was made on the background of partitition. Same was the case with “Nastik”(1954). These movies had lots of songs, and the characters are seen suffering most of the time.

Then in 1960s, we had “Haqeeqat”(1964), made on the background of Indo China war. This movie was based on war, but it was mostly a musical movie with lots of hit songs, and war almost getting relegated to the background.

After many decades, Indians slowly started to have some achievemments under their belts. So, accordingly, Indian movies stories became more positive where the hero was more assertive than before.

During the last few years, several movies have been made on real life events, and most of these movies are success stories.

“Dangal”(2016) was based on a real life story of a man who despite living in a male dominated society manages to turn his daughters into international wresters. It was a real life inspiring story that caught the imagination of not only Indians but also Chinese audience ! The movie did a business of over Rs 700 crores in China !

Personally I loved “Parmanu”(2018), which was based on Pokharan II, an eventthat signalled the rise of a new and assertive India, far from the days of 1962 that “Haqeeqat”(1964) depicted.

“Uri” (2019) was based on surgical strike of 2016. There were people who left no stones unturned to tell us that surgical strike did not take place, and their supporters in India asked for proof. Believers went to the movie and turned it into a box office success. This episode, like the episode described in “Parmanu” (2018) demonstated the rise on a new and assertive India which would not take things lying down if wronged and would retaliate aggressively.

A country gains self confidence when it is doing well in economy and related fields. Indian economy is doing well for the last few years and India economy is fifth largest GDP in the world. Some media houses gleefully reported that India had slipped to seventh position, but that was on december 2018. As on today, India is again 5th biggest economy, a fact that our media is hiding from us.

A country can rise up the economy ladder only if it has high quality highly educated manpower. Low quality manpower can take an economy up to certain level, but after that level, you need top class manpower to take you forward. India at present is a low middle income group nation (per capita earning in the region of $ 1000 to $ 40000 per annum). India will need to more than double its GDP and then we can hope to break into the ranks of upper middle income nations (per capita income in the region of $ 4000 to $ 12000). Final barrier is $ 12000 and a country with per capita earning above that figure becomes a high income country.

Only those countries that invest in high quality education and high quality infrastructure can break in the league of upper middle group nations and finally into higher income nations. India has a long long way to go. But India is in the right track. I can visualise India breakin into the rank of upper middle rank nations when Indian GDP reaches about $ 6 trillions. It woulkd be sometime in the next ten years.

GDP of a nation keeps climbing at a good rate only if a country is doing high quality work which can be sold all over the world. India is a world leader in high quality research products like pharmaceuticals, health services etc. These sectors will help India grow up in future. In manufacturing sector, I hope to see some interesting world class products, like say Train 18 from Indian Railways and Tejas from HAL, which will have good market worldwide, if Indian Government can plan and execute the plans well.

ISRO, Indian space agency is a shining example of what Indian manpower is capable of. ISRO has earned tremendous name and goodwill for its stellar works. It has launched many satellites of foreign advanced nations and they have played an important role in earning respect for Indian manpower. It is not for nothing that many silicon valley big wigs are people of Indian origin.

“Mission Mangal”(2019) is based on ISRO’s mangalyaan expedition. With this mission, ISRO succeeded in sending its spacecraft (mars orbiter) to Mars successfully in thhe very first attempt, and they did it on a shoe string budget.

The movie “‘Mission Mangal” (2019) is jointly produced Cape of Good Films, Hope Productions, Fox Star Studios, Aruna Bhatia, and Anil Naidu and directed by Jagan Shakti. The movie has Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen, Kirti Kulhari, Sharman Joshi, H. G. Dattatreya, Vikram Gokhale, and Sonakshi Sinha etc in it.

When this mission had actually taken place, social media was abuzz with a photograph that showed a few homely housewife looking ladies who were in reality ISRO scientists and who had played important roles in the success of the mission. The makers of this movie have been greatly influenced by this fact. The movie shows lots of female power in the movie.

The story , based on real life ISRO stories, starts by showing failure of a GSLV launch on December 25, 2010 due to an error of judgement by project director Tara Shinde (Vidya Balan). Rakesh Dhawan (Akshay Kumar) takes the responsibility of the failure on himself. As a punishment posting, he is hunted out to “Mangalyaan” mission, a mission no one has much hopes on.

Maenwhile Tara Shinde too gets herself transferred to Mangalyaan project and she has some idea about how this project can be successfully executed. Rakesh Dhawan and Tar Shinde convince the ISRO head (Vikram Gokhale) to support them by budget and staff. Budget is limited and keeps getting reduced, and the manpower asked in not what was needed. They end up with rookie scientists like Eka Gandhi (Sonakshi Sinha)the propulsion control expert, who is dying to leave ISRO and join NASA as soon as possible, spacecraft autonomy designer Neha Siddiqui (Kirti Kulhari ) whose second name causes raised eyebrows when she is looking for rented accomodation, navigation expert Krittika Agarwal (navigation expert) who has great difficulty learning to drive a car. Her husband is in Army who gets injured in an accident. Satellite designer and payload expert Varsha Pillai (Nithya Menon) has a nagging mother in law at home who taunts her for being childless.

There are two male scientists too. Astrology believing Parmeshwar Joshi (Sharman Joshi) is told by his astrologer that his “Mangal” is bhaari and that is why he is unable to get married. No wonder he is reluctant to join the mission. Then there is Anant Ayengar (H G Dattatreya) who is one year short of retirement and is already counting days.

How Rakesh Dhawan and Tara Shinde get their team to deliver and how successfully deal with major hurdles constitutes the story. While there are some critics who have found lots of weaknesses and holes in the story, I loved the movie. I find the episodes quite entertaing. When Rakesh Dhawan first goes to the mangalyaan area of ISRO, he finds that vacant and without any sings of life. Then he finds a matka with water in it. So there is water in mars- he observes. Then a cat enters the hall. So, there is life in Mars, he concludes.

The movie is based on a real life story, so we all know what hexactly happened. Still the movie keeps you glued to your seat. And it gives you goosebumps when the rocket lifts off from its launch pad.

This is a movie only Indians could have made and only Indians could have identfied with. I am happy that a movie was made on this subject. The makers have done the best they could have. insteda of finding faults (like what some people have done) I take it as glass half full and I enjoyed th movie. I think that most Indians who like to be positive about their lives and about their country will enjoy this movie.

The movie has three songs in it. My personal favourite is the theme song. The lyrics of this song are by Amitabh Bhattacharya and he has indulged in some interesting word play in this song. The song is sung by Benny Dayal , Vibha Saraf and others. Music is composed by Amit Trivedi.

This song happens to be the 15200th song in the blog. It is the first time that this blog has a new song from the current year as the century song. I think this song fully deserves it. It is a song that I loved from the vey fist time I heard it and watched it.

These days we have two actors who are competing for making movies on nationalistic subjects. One is Akshay Kumar and another is John Abraham. I had loved John Abraham’s “Parmanu”(2018) and I loved Akshay Kumar’s “Mission Mangal”(2019). In 1960s and 1970s, we had Manoj Kumar making patriotic movies. Today we have John Abraham and Akshay Kumar. There is one cartoon which shows the two of them grabbing each other by their collars, arguing about who should take up which nationalistic story next. Then there is another cartoon showing Akshay Kumar with P M Modi. Modi tells Akshay Kumar-“Keep making movies, I will keep giving you story ideas.” It must be said that the story idea for Article 370 is something that a Frederick Forsyth or Leon Uris would have been proud to write.

So, here is the 15200 th song for the blog. It must be one of the most unnoticed century post occasion which apparently no one was looking forward to, including even I myself. Nevertheless, the needful needs to be done. So we are now 15200 song post old with this writeup. I take this opportunity to thank all our visitors and well wishers for their continued encouragement and support. May we keep scoring many more centuries in future.

With this song, “Mission Mangal”(2019) makes its debut in the blog.

Blog Day : 4045 Post No. : 15174

What kind of relationship must one have with their country? This is a question I have been pondering lately. There is no doubt one feels a sense of kinship and pride for the perseverance and accomplishments and bravery its people show on a near everyday basis. But then aren’t all these accomplishments a result of someone questioning some kind of status quo that existed in this country.

The world is feeling like a strange place. Ours isn’t the only country in the grips of a wave of nationalism that is based on a sense of othering and homogenizing our culture. But weren’t we taught ‘Unity in Diversity’  as one of our strengths in school? Independence day involved so many symbolic displays of things like ‘One Country, Many Cultures’; “Hindu Muslim Sikh Isaai, sab hai yahan bhai bhai”. One of my favourite lines to do the cringy school dances to was “Koi Punjab Se, Koi Maharashtra Se” one from the song “Ae Watan Ae Watan” (film ‘Shaheed’, 1965) – (though I hated the word Madrasi that was used in such displays, I am not from Madras!). And suddenly we have a country where questioning the status quo is being against the country.

Can’t one love the country and still dislike / disagree with somethings in it? We love our family and friends the same way no? The love is unconditional but there are things like maybe their lateness or forgetfulness that annoys us? Isn’t that what patriotism should be? An unconditional love that pushes us to work hard to improve our country so we are truly the best country in every metric?

Last year I saw a film called ‘Raazi’. It is based on the true story of an Indian spy who married into a Pakistani military family to help the Indian war efforts. Two plot points in the movie left a deep impression on me and on my patriotic sentiments. The first was when the ‘spy’ and her spouse have a conversation about why they both do what they do. And they both realize that they will always choose their birth country over their spouse. It’s just that their birth countries are different. The second point is this song I want to showcase in this post on independence day today. Incidentally this song is also titled “Ae Watan” .

This song in the film is supposed to be an Indian patriotic song being taught to Pakistani school children for a school function. Even though the song contains the opening lines (“Lab Pe Aati Hai Duaa. . .“) which is the national prayer of Pakistan. It was penned in 1902 by the legendary poet, Allama Iqbal. But by its very nature it is country neutral. It is sung in schools in Pakistan, as well as in some states in India. That’s when it hit me. The object of your emotion of patriotism – that is an accident of nature. You have no control over this. But you have control over what you do with it. And how you use the opportunity to leave the place you were born into, better than when you arrived into it.

There is a multitude of amazing things being done by Indians that we can be proud of – from sustainable sanitary solutions, to the moon mission, to Dutee Chand fighting the Olympic committee and her village simultaneously on accepting everything she was born with. Whether it’s is a medical condition or who she loves. This is a beautiful country that gained its independence because people refused to accept the status quo. And I choose to be proud of it without losing sight of how much further we have to go.

There is another reason I love this song, because the video reminds me of the Independence day celebrations we had in school and all the ways we practiced for it. Truly brings a certain nostalgia back

This song is “Ae Watan” from ‘Raazi’ (2018) which is directed by Meghana Gulzar and produced by Junglee Pictures and Dharma Productions. Its based on a book by Harinder Sikka named ‘Calling Sehmat’. The film version of the song has Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Amruta Khanvilkar. The song is composed by Shankar Ehsaan and Loy, while its lyrics are written by Gulzar. Its female version, which is the one featured in the film, is sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and the male version which was for promos is by Arijit Singh. Both versions have longer audio versions than video. The lyrics given below are according to the audio versions I have.

Happy Independence day to all readers! Enjoy!

Sports biopic is a rare genre for Hindi film industry until recently. Producing a sport biopic film is like venturing into an uncharted water. However, the box office successes of ‘Paan Singh Tomar (2012) and ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ (2013) have created a trend in Bollywood to produce sports biopic films on a regular basis. During the last 5 years, sports biopic such as ‘Mary Kom’ (2014), ‘Dangal’ (2016), ‘Azhar’ (2016), ‘Budhia Singh – Born to Run’ (2016), ‘M S Dhoni – The Untold Story (2017) and ‘Soorma’ (2018) were released. Some more sports biopic films have been in the pipelines for a long time. They include films on Dhayan Chand (Hockey), Saina Nehwal (Badminton), P V Sindhu (Badminton), Abhinav Bindra (Shooting) etc.

‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ (2013) was a trend-setter in Hindi films in propagating sports biopic as a genre of film. The film was directed by Rakeysh Ompradkash Mehra with Farhan Akhtar as Milkha Singh – the Flying Sikh who was the first Indian sprinter to win gold medals in Asian and Commonwealth games. The screen-play, dialogues and songs were written by Prasoon Joshi. The film was a box office success to the extent that it logged about Rs,165 crore as global earnings as against the total cost of about Rs.30 crore in producing the film.

Unlike other genres of films, producing biopics, that too the sports biopic films are time consuming process as experienced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the producer-director of the film. True life stories required a lot of research. Finding a financier/distributor for the sports biopic film is equally difficult as this was an emerging genre of the film at the time of making the film. Lastly, finding a right type of actor to do the role of the sports biopic character is difficult. The actor needs to devote a considerable time to come into the physique and the mannerism requires for the character he plays in the biopic. Most of the top actors will not have time to spend for training schedules. Farhan Akhtar who did the role of Milkha Singh in ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ (2013) had revealed during an interview:

I went through a tremendous amount of training for nearly seven and a half months before we started shooting, and then again for the entire duration of shooting, which lasted about 10 or 11 months. So I was under training for more than a year and a half. I actually lived the life of an athlete; I wasn’t just pretending to be one.

Farhan Akhtar also took Urdu lessons from his father, Javed Akhtar and Punjabi lessons from Gulzar to improve his diction.

I missed watching ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ (2013) when it was released in July 2013 despite a high recommendation from my son. Recently, I watched the film on Hotstar and liked it. This is one of few films which I had watched on small screen in one go. I regretted for not having watched the film on a multiplex screen when it was released

The film has depicted the life story of Milkha Singh broadly reflecting three stages of his life from 1947 to 1962. In the first stage, he migrates to India as a 12-year orphaned boy from his village in Pakistan who has lost his parents, a brother and sister during partition. As a boy, he spends his childhood in Refugee camp in Delhi. His married sister takes care of him. In the second part, his grows into a teenager when he indulges in petty crime. He also falls in love with Biroo (Sonam Kapoor). But his girl friend would marry him only when he abandons his ruffian way of life and become a responsible man. Milkha Singh accepts the challenge and joins Army in his third attempt. The last part of the film is on his becoming a successful athlete (sprinter) after overcoming lots of physical hardships. He wins gold medals in Asian and Commonwealth Games but loses his Biroo as her parents had married her to a different groom. He also loses the medal in Rome Olympic but at the end he emerges winner in his life.

The director refrained from over-dramatising the emotional events following the partition. Milkha Singh has been depicted in the film true to his life having both good and not so good sides of his life. I never knew that Milkha Singh had a very traumatised childhood and had spent few days in Tihar Jail for petty crime, until I saw the film. For me, Milkha Singh was a ‘Flying Sikh’, a title which was given by General Ayub Khan when he defeated his Pakistani counter-part in 200m run in Indo-Pak Friendship Athletic Meet at Lahore in 1962.

By the way I noticed that the moustache of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman which has become trendy, resembles that of Prayag Raj in the role of an Army Officer in ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ (2013).

The mesmersing music composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy (S-E-L) is another plus point of the film. The album has 8 songs including one rock version of title song which is played as the credit titles run at the end of the film. I was unaware of almost all of the film’s songs except the title song ‘bhaag Milkha bhaag’ until I watched the film recently. I am sure, after ther release of the film, three of the songs namely, ‘havan kund maston ka jhund’ ‘zinda’ and ‘slow motion angreza’ must have become very popular with the younger lots as these songs are blended with rock music and rhythmic beats.

But what made me to write this article is one song out of 8 songs in the film which lingered in my mind for a long time. The song is ‘o rangrez tere rang dariya mein’ rendered by Javed Bashir and Shreya Ghoshal. Javed Bashir is a Pakistan-based Hindustani Classical, Sufi and Qawwali singer. The tune of the song is based on raag Khamaj which is generally used for virah ras (separation). Hence this raag is favourite of ghazal and thumri singers. Shankar Mahadevan has used Khamaj raag in this song somewhat in a lighter mood to sync with the romantic background of the song.

Another feature of this song is that though it is picturized as a romantic song, the underlying tone of the lyrics is Sufiyana. The song starts with salutation to Rangrez. The words, ‘Rang’ and ‘Rangrez’ have been widely used by Sufi poets. ‘Rangrez’ is a Persian word which means ‘dyer’ who colours the cloth. But Sufi poets use this word metaphorically for a Sufi Saint who imparts colour (knowledge) to his followers to be one with the Almighty. There is no difference between ‘you’ and ‘me’ in a same way when colour is applied to the cloth and they become one. Prasoon Joshi has nicely written three lines in the song under discussion to emphasize on the philosophy of ‘oneness’:

ek bhi saans alag nahin leni
khench lena praan iss tan ke
nahin rehna dooja ban ke

One more feature of this song is that in the interlude music, in addition to percussion (Tabla and Dholak) Bouzouki (Mandolin like instrument) and Guitar, a rare musical instrument called Esraj has been used. One can listen to the sound of Esraj in Video clip of the song between 1:33 and 2:05 which sounds like that of Sarangi. The reason is that Esraj (like Dilruba) is a hybrid musical instrument combining the sounds of Sitar and Sarangi. This instrument has rarely been used in Hindi film music as it has almost extinct from professional circuit by 1980s. Instead music directors like S D Burman, Roshan, R D Burman had used Dilruba. It appears that Esraj is one of music director S-E-L’s favourite musical instruments. They have used Esraj for musical compositions in ‘Manmarziyaan’ (2018) and ‘Raazi’ (2018) also.

Enjoy this ‘two-in-one’ song – a romantic song if one watches the video clip of the song and a Sufiyana song if one only listens to the song.

Blog Day : 3949 Post No. : 15024

15 august 1947 and 26 january 1950 are popularly regarded as two important days in the history of modern India. India got freedom fromm British rule on 15 august 1947 whereas India became a republic on 26 january 1950.

There were two more days in India that have escaped the attention of people, but they have had equally profound effect on India.

It was on 24 july 1991 that India liberalised its economy, and that was a game changing moment for the economy of India. From a struggling economy dependent on foreign aid, this day India achieved economical freedom. Today, 28 years later, India is the sixth largest economy in the world (in nominal terms) and it will become the third largest economy in the world in another decade.

Another game changing day came about on 11 may 1998, exactly 21 years ago. This day is now celebrated in India as National technology day. It was on 11 may 1998 that India, defying immense world wide pressure, carried out nuclear explosens in Pokharan and proudly, and unapologetically described India as a nuclear power.

A large population of India are mainly interested in own interests and are not bothered about bigger things like national interest, national pride etc. Those were the days when Indians sugffered from low self esteem as well as inferiority complex. Reasons were not far to seek. One reason was ofcourse poor Indian economy. That matter was addressed in 1991, and the results of this belated step would begin to bear fruit only in the years to come.

Five nuclear powers had set up a discriminatory club of nuclear haves-they had made a discriminatory law that allowed them to do all the nuclear tests that they wanted but prohibited others to carry out any nuclear tests. India was againt this discrimination and felt that thy too belonged to this exclusive group as and when they decided to become a nuclear state.

This discriminatory treaty ws called NPT (Non Proliferation treaty) which came int force in 1970. All the five nuclear powers at that time were given privileges vis a vis nuclear tests that were not available to to other countries. Under this treaty, nuclear have nots were not required to give up their nuclear weapons while the have nots were not allowed to have them.

Indian objection was that China, despite being a nuclear have and a signatory to NPT had violated it by passing know how to Pakistan. Indian objection to NPT was also because both China and Pakistan, its two intransigent neighbours had nuclear weapons (whether declared or clandestine) and so India, in their national interes was unwilling to sign this treaty.

In 1996, one more discriminatory treaty, viz CTBT (Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban treaty) was created and all nations of the world were required to sign it. This treaty forbid countries to carry out any kinds of nuclear explosions. This was discriminatory because the nuclear haves had already carried out number of nuclear exposion tests whereas the nuclear have nots were being forbidden to do the same.

India did not sign NPT and CTBT. Pakistan too did likewise.

Despite these treaties, Self respecting Indians felt that India needed to assert themselves, no matter what the treaties prescribed. PV Narsimha Rao, the architect behind the economic liberalisation, decided that he would as well carry out the nuclear test. But USA, thanks to its satellites, got wind of the intentions and prevailed over India to stop it.

After the elections, P V Narsimha Rao lost election, but his seccessor, Atal Bihari Vajpayee was determined to carry out this test. Learning from the earlier foiled attempt, he ensured that this time USA was unable to get wind of Indian intentions. USA became aware of Indian intention only after India had done their tests.

The date was 11 may 1998. Three explosions (one fusion bomb and two fission bomb) were exploded on this day. It was followd by two more fission explosion on 13 may 1998.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee announced that India was “now a full fledged nuclear state”.

How these tests were conducted keeping high tech USA spy satellites in the dark is the stuff of fiction and legend. Enough reading materail is available on this topic. It is very interesting if you are the kind who love reading thrillers/ spy novels/ adventure novels etc. And to imagine that all this ACTUALLY happened. One USA senator described it as “the biggest failure of our intelligence gathering agencies in the past ten years or more”.

The aftermath of these tests, and how India dealt with them was even more impressive and awe inspiring if you are a self respecting Indian. The world condemned these tests and stringent economic sanctions were imposed on India by USA and Japan, among others. It ws here that the well planned and thought out measures by Atal Bihari Vajpayee and others paid off. Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Lal Krishn Advani, after these tests began to mock Pakistan on a daily basis. This mocking and the increasing domestic pressure began too much for Pakistan and they too carried out their nuclear tests on 28 may 1998, despite international pressure. Sanctions were imposed on Pakistan as well.

Vajpayee had planned for the aftermath of these tests and so they were ready. But Pakistan, in trying to match India found itself in doldrums as a result of economic sanctions. Pakistan was in the good books of USA at that time, and so USA began to get worried about the economy of Paakistan and tried to find ways to lift the economic sanctions of Pakistan. Desperate to lift Pakistan sanctions, USA devised a way out and lifted the sanction on Pakistan by end of 1998. With that even Indian sanctions were lifted.

It may sound counter intuitive, but these tests enhanced Indian stature in the world. USA, the first to comdemn Indian and imposed sanctions on India began to realise that India was a responsible nuclear power. India gained acceptability from USA and other nations followed. It was a turning point in India’s engagement with the world- long overdue but still incomplete, investment in assuring Indian security.

India was a non signatory of NPT and CTBT still it was made member of three of four global non proliferation regimes, and got a waiver for the fourth viz NSG.

India were subjected to so many economic and technological sanctions from USA in the past that Indians had stopped bothering about them. These sanctions made them develop their own indigenous technologies. For instance, USA prohibited the sale of supercomputers to India in 1980s. India in response developed their own superomputer. USA in 1990s ensured that India would not be given cryogenic technology used for launching satellites. India developd their own cryogenic engine.

On this day in 1998, India also test fired Trishul missile successfully. Hansa-3, the first indigenously built aircraft was test flown on this as well. In recognition of these feats, 1 may is celebrated as “national Technological day”. But to my mind, this day should be regarded as national self respect day. It was on this day that made other nations begin to look at India with renewed respect and awe. Subsequently, growth of Indian economy has added to Indian clout considerably.

These tests, which are poularly known as “Pokharan II”, led to a movie being made on this topic in 2018. This movie called “Parmanu” (2018) was a nice imaginary take on this very important happening in modern Indian history. This movie was directed by Abhishek Verma for Zee Studios and JA Entertainment. The movie had John Abraham, Diana Penty, Boman Irani, Aditya Hitkari, Vikas Kumar, Yogendra Tiku, Ajay Shankar, Anuja Sathe, Darshan Pandya, Zachary Coffin, Mark Bennington, Satinder Singh Gahlot, Praveena Deshpande etc in it.

The movie was released on 5 may 2018. It was the first Hindi movie of 2018 that I watched and I quite liked it. I have already covered one song from this movie.

My favourite dialogue from the movie is:

ab ham dar ke shaant nahin baithhenge
kar ke shaant baithhenge

Today, on this Indian self respect day (my nomenclature), here is a song from “Parmanu”(2018). This song is sung by Divya Kumar and chorus. Vayu is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sachin Jogar.

The song is picturised as a background song in the movie.

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 12
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Cannot believe that we have reached the milestone of 15k on the blog. Just seems like yesterday that we were all waiting with bated breath to reach the 10k milestone. How time flies, and how consistent and persistent all of you have been. No words to express each one of your dedication, passion and labour of love.

What can one say about this haven of ours that has not been said before? For someone like me who has been like a pardesi in some ways (not being active as all the regulars), it is so heartening when all of you still reach out and ask how things are with me and family.

Team ASAD we could equate with the CSK team in IPL, consistent, champions and liked by one and all. Needless to say, we have calm, composed leaders to lead us too 🙂 .

It does feel guilty that our Yippeeee! team could not continue our work after a point of time, and yet there is hope that we would get back to it one day soon and try really hard to get to the ever moving target of the blog :).

These days, the only place I get to listen to songs is the car, and most of the times, it is what my daughter decides to play that we get to listen to. One of the recent numbers that is pretty much on repeat in her current playlist is a lovely song from the upcoming movie that most people are looking forward to called ‘Kalank’.

The song has been picturised so well, and is even better thanks to two amazingly talented actors, Madhuri Dixit and Alia Bhatt. The voice for these two are the versatile Shreya Ghoshal and Vaishali Mhade. For some reason, when you listen to this song multiple times, reminds us of songs sung by the Mangeshkar sisters (the names of the songs do not come to mind).

Though Pritam is accused many a time to blatantly copy songs for his tracks in movies, he does come up with some brilliant numbers that forces you to play them in a loop.

I know I have not done justice to this article celebrating the 15k milestone of the blog, nor the song featured here, but I am hoping the article would be the last thing on your mind after you listen to this beautiful number which has such an amazing tempo and so well rendered.

Wishing Atul ji, Sudhir ji, Arun ji, Khyati Ben, Raja ji and the entire paltan and followers of the blog, a very big Congratulations! This is no mean achievement, and I am sure for the celebration we can expect some amazing trivia and posts to reach even more unique milestones with this one big milestone. Let the force be with our blog.

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Founders of Infosys (who started their venture reportedly on a Rs 10K seed capital) may not have imagined where their efforts will lead to, one day. Apple company, which started their journey from a garage, may not have guessed how big they will grow one day.  Atul Ji when he single-handedly started this blog (with moral encouragement from friends like Raja Ji – as I understand & others who showed thumbs up at that time) may not have had an idea how far the journey will progress.

But here we – Atulites – are, looking at 15000 posts!!!!. No mean feat in the era of information & social media explosion. No success is without a reason. I would say that sheer commitment, passion, dedication of Atul Ji,  Sudhir ji, Arun Ji, Sadanand Ji and all the other contributors & innumerable visitors to the blog have helped to make it to where we are today. Acha lagata hai na?

This post utilises three punch words, all prompted by today’s song.  They are : ‘achha lagata hai’, ‘seedhe point pe aao na’  & ‘short me batalao na’.

I have covered ‘achha lagata hai’ in first para. I will now ‘come to the point’ in this Para  🙂 . Today’s song is from film ‘Aarakshan’ (2011). After ‘permission’ from seniors, to write on recent songs, I have chosen this one. This film makes its debut in ASAD, with this post.

The film is by Prakash Jha on the topic of reservation. I have seen this movie. It was not at all hard hitting as I expected. But I loved the music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy. The singers are Mohit Chauhan & Shreya Ghoshal. Lyrics are by Prasoon Joshi. I took to this song from the word Go. Fresh tune, feel young lyrics, joyously sung, lovingly enacted by Saif & Deepika, exciting orchestration are what appealed to me. ‘sun ke achha laga‘. I hope aap ko bhi achha lagega . I feel young all over again listening to this song 🙂 .

Today’s generation loves to keep it short – no patience for details/clarity, eh?  ‘LOL’, ‘ASAP’ ‘ILU’ and such short forms are the flavour of the youngsters. Hence, as for the last punch word ‘short me batalao na’, I end this post. 🙂

jhatak kar zulf jab tum
tauliye se baarishein azaad karti ho
achha lagta hai
hila kar honth jab bhi
haule haule guftagu ko saaz karti ho

oo oo oo

seedhe point pe aao na
aaankh me aankhein daal ke keh do
khwaabon mein tehlaayo na

jab apni hi adaa pe naaz karti ko
achha lagta hai

oo oo oo

jhoothi moothi behkaao na
haathon ko haathon mein le ke
wo teen shabd tapkaao na

Blog Day :

3916 Post No. : 14979 Movie Count :

4095

A someone who has written so many articles on HFM in the blog, people may believe that I have watched lots of movies. That is not true. Out of all the thirty odd posters in the blog, I may have watched the least number of movies. 🙂

When I was in the real movie watching age (in my teens), I watched a few movies till 1972, and then there was a six year hiatus lasting till may 1978 when I did not watch any movies. Then I reached college and got “freedom”which I duly misused by watching movies left and right (bunking college) as if making up for lost time. A few years later, I would begin watching movies in hostel, movie halls etc during my engineering days and later during the early years of my postings.

Then there was a bigger break from watching movies beginning from 2000 ! I was posted to North East parts of the country in january 2000 (just as the new millenium started). From that time till about 2007, I did not watch a single movie in movie halls. Subsequently, I watched “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” in a dilapidated movie hall in Jabalpur in 2008.

I did not watch any other movies from 2008 till about 2014. By that time single screen movie halls were history and one needed to go to malls to watch movies. The very first movie of the decade of 2010s that I watched was in Bilaspur and it was in a mall at Bilaspur. It was “PK”(2014) that I watched in december 2014, just a few days before the Mumbai gangout that I attended.

Next movie that I watched was “Bahubali” part I at Gorakhpur in 2015 while I has reported there on transfer and was waing for my posing order. I was posted to Izatnagar, Bareilly and it was there that I watched “Bahubali” part II in 2017, this time with my wife and daughter. This became the first and so far only movie that my entire family has watched together.

Then I watched a few more movies there. I learnt the art of booking tickets online in advance from my daughter. 🙂

It must be said that most of the movies that I have watched this decade and century have been “hat ke” movies. I cannot stand routine movies and so I do not watch such movies.

Last movie that I watched at Izatnagar was “Pokharan”(2018)- a movie that was right up my alley !

If one looks at the list of songs in the blog, we have songs from movies of every year from 1931 till 2018 ! We are in 2019 but so far no songs from movies of 201`9 have appeared in the blog.

I am in Gorakhpur right now and I have managed to watch a few movies this year. The first movie that I watched was “Uri”, followed by “The Accidental Prime Minister”. Subsequently I have watched “Kesari” and “Junglee”.

In my opinion, it is not the right time to discuss “Uri” and “Kesari”. I will discuss them later. Here I would discuss a song from “Junglee” (2019).

The movie and its actors were all unknown quantities for me. The movie began with great promise but as time wore on, the makers of the movie decided to reduce it to a farcical C grade movie.

In the end, a movie that could have been this era’s “Haathi Mere Saathi” was reduced to a forgettable movie.

The movie ended on a rather unsatisfactory note as far as I am concerned. The second half of the movie was quite farcical. The hero, despite being shot several times from close range and left to die, does not die. What is more, he recovers fully and regains full energy overnight, with all the gun shot woulds vanishing miraculously within hours. The logic followed by the makwers was that everyone else in the movie was expendable, but not the hero. So we find Heroes father as well as the bull elephnd of the jungle- dying at the hands of poachers, just like that, while the hero does not.

I would have liked the bull elephant (shows as friend of the hero since childhood) to survive. That would have been a heart warming end, rather than the less than satisfactory end to the movie.

Just as the movie ended and people began to troop out, we found this song getng played. Arre ! such a hummable song should have been a part of the main movie, rather than being presented as an afterthought, after many of the movie goers have already left the hall !

On checking up online, I find that thiis song is sung by Navraj Hans, Hamsika Iyer, Abhishek Nailwal and Gulshan Kumar. Kumar Suryawanshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sameer Uddin.

The song is picturised on the hero (Vidyut Jammwal), Pooja Sawant, Asha Bhat etc.

This is a song that needs to be watched and savoured in isolation, rather than as part of the movie. If one watches this song in isolation, it is quite a heart warming and feel good song.

With this song, “Junglee”(2019) as well as the artists of the song make their debuts in the blog.

I am totally unaware about the singers, so my colour coding and identification of voices is a non starter and I have not even tried to identify the voices. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the voices.


Song-Shor macha hai jungle mein (Junglee)(2019) Singers-Navraj Hans, Hamsika Iyer, Abhishek Nailwal,Gulshan Kumar, Lyrics-Kumar Suryavanshi, MD-Sameer Uddin

Lyrics

Shor macha hai jungle mein
soond uthhaaye dangal mein
garje gajraaj hamaare
garje gajraaj hamaare
hey
shor macha hai jungle mein
soond uthhaaye dangal mein
garje gajraaj hamaare
garje gajraaj hamaare

inko na tum chhedo bhaiyya
sanak na jaaye inka pahiya
arre inko na tum chhedo bhaiyya
sanak na jaaye inka pahiya

ye waise to cool hain
par inka ik usool hai
ye bhoolte na bhai kuchh bhi
inse panga lena bhool hai
ye baithh bhi jaayen
to hote hain sher se oopar
ye tata thaiyya karte
bade mast mauji ban kar

bhaagen saare paanv pasaare
garje jab gajraaj hamaare

shor macha hai jungle mein
soond uthhaaye dangal mein
garje gajraaj hamaare
garje gajraaj hamaare
shor macha hai jungle mein
soond uthhaaye dangal mein
garje gajraaj hamaare
garje gajraaj hamaare

yeaah

dham dham dham dham dham kaanpe
dhara dhara ye
panja rakhhe bhara bhare ye

mrignayani aankhon mein bas jaa
ya phir unke raste se hat jaa

pyaar se bolo
god uthhaa le
aankh dikhaai to dhobi pachhaade

hoy hoy hoy
hoy hoy hoy

inka junglee hai tashan
khud mein rahte hain magan

sher khan bhi kare hain
inke saamne jatan

mil kar dharti ambar saare
kar den shat shat naman tumhaare

shor macha hai jungle mein
soond uthhaaye dangal mein
garje gajraaj hamaare
garje gajraaj hamaare
shor macha hai jungle mein
soond uthhaaye dangal mein
garje gajraaj hamaare
garje gajraaj hamaare
shor macha hai jungle mein
soond uthhaaye dangal mein
garje gajraaj hamaare
garje gajraaj hamaare
