Memories that are pure gold – the mention of his name brings to mind a limited set of memories. Ah but these memories are pure gold.

Remembering Vijay Anand today, on his birth anniversary. He would have been 86 today.

Without any doubts, the best and the most remarkable sense of visualization of music. Not just thinking of films with Navketan – ‘Nau Do Gyaarah’ (1957), ‘Kaala Bazaar’ (1960), ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne’ (1963), ‘Guide’ (1965), ‘Jewel Thief’ (1967), ‘Johnny Mera Naam’ (1970) and more, his films outside of Navketan are also as memorable for their songs. ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966) being the most popular and loved film for its songs, and their presentation. Of course, no one counters the wholesome effect of “O Haseena Zulfon Waali”. But then, see “O Mere Sona Re Sona Re Sona Re”. The superb performances in this song by both Shammi Kapoor and Asha Parekh are the handiwork of a most capable director, who knows how to bring out the maximum impact of everything that goes into presenting a song – the ambience, the words, the music, the facial expressions, the body language, crafting the merger of actions with music, the give and take between the two protagonists – everything brought together to convey this latent feeling in the heart, bringing it to the lips, and then expressing it with an un-tethered exuberance on the part of the lady, and a coy displeasure (to start with) on part of the gentleman. The end result – as Atul ji has often pointed out – after three stanzas, all is well and the lovers are seen walking hand in hand.

Take ‘Black Mail’ (1973) and the wonderfully soft rendition of a surreal presence of the loved one – felt through the written word, the voice of lover echoing through the letters, and the presence is so real that the lady wakes up with a start having felt the reality of a kiss on her forehead. Yes, the song is “Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas, Tum Rehti Ho”. I am never tired of replaying this song, the video I mean. Just the song itself is great, but its presentation on screen has enhanced its beauty and impact many folds.

Vijay Anand has also appeared in a handful of films. In some of the films that he directed himself, and he is not in the list of actors, one can catch a glimpse of him in very brief cameo appearances. However, he has appeared in bigger roles, and also as a hero. The first film in which he made his debut in a meaty role is ‘Joru Ka Bhai’ from 1955, a comedy film in which the lead pair was Balraj Sahni and Sheela Ramani.

His next major appearance is as the hero of the 1957 film ‘Agra Road’, a cops and robbers type of story. Next we see him on screen along with his two elder brothers, Chetan and Dev, in the 1960 film ‘Kala Bazaar’ which he also directed. In this film he plays the role of the ex-boyfriend of Waheeda Rehman, who has gone for higher studies to France, and returns with his amorous loyalties shifted elsewhere.

After a gap of four years, he is seen once again in a supporting role in ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964), a film that had a large ensemble of main line stars. The next gap is much longer – 7 years. And he makes his screen appearance once again in the 1971 film ‘Tere Mere Sapne’, a film that he has directed himself. His role in this film as Dr. Jagannath Kothari, a famous gynecologist (in film), is very impressive and effective.

The next film is ‘Chhupa Rustom’ in 1973. Dev and himself, are police agents who go undercover to capture a gang of smugglers. Once again, this film is directed by him. His role, masquerading as a shady, brash, small time, two-timing con man brings out the comedian in him – in my opinion one of his best screen appearances. This film is an Indianized version of the famous novel by Alistair MacLean – ‘Fear Is The Key’.

Parallel to ‘Chhupa Rustam’ in 1973, he also appeared in the film ‘Double Cross’. In this, he appears in a double role as the hero and his twin brother who is on the wrong side of the law. He was not yet 40, but he looked quite overage for this twin brothers roles. He appears to be trying very hard to be the role, but was not convincing. The con-man role in ‘Chhupa Rustam’ was a great act, but in ‘Double Cross’ he did not quiet click. It is interesting to note that in the role of the brother on the right side of the law, Vijay is a professional photographer. That rang a bell in my mind and I checked. Very much so, the film ‘Heera Panna’ in which Dev Anand plays the role of a professional photographer also, was released in 1973 itself. As one compares the two performances, they are quite similar in mannerism, attire and body language. Now who was copying from whom? 🙂

In 1973 came another good film, produced and directed by his elder brother Chetan – ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam’. He played the role of a fighter pilot, coming from a family of soldiers and pilots. There is a brief but a great monologue by him in this film – “Saathiyo, Dosto, Hum Hi To Aaj Ke Arjun Hain. . .”. (It can be viewed at 39:40 on the timeline at the link for the film ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam‘.) He presents this monologue, takes to the skies and then does not return. A short role, albeit an impressive one.

A year later he produced the film ‘Chor Chor’ (1974), but did not direct it himself. It is a suspense thriller that did not make it good on the box office, however, it was praised by the critics and reviewers. The film had no songs, and its star cast was very interesting. Vijay had assembled many actors of yesteryears for this film – Trilok Kapoor, Jairaj, and Ranjan. The female lead opposite to Vijay himself is Leena Chandawarkar. I have not seen this film, but it seems interesting enough to merit a view.

In 1974, he appeared in another film, in a very impressive performance once again. The film ‘Kora Kaagaz’, and he is cast with Jaya Bhaduri as the leading pair. The film is about an idealistic romance that transforms into matrimony. And the matrimony cannot withstand the reality of social relations and issues of personal choices – it breaks apart. Alas, there is a happy ending as the estranged spouses meet and make up in railway waiting room. Another very impressive performance.

Then, after a gap of another 4 years, Vijay appeared in another very good role – that of a rich landlord, very well performed. The film is ‘Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki’. A gem of a film by Raj Khosla, Vijay is pitted against two seasoned performers – Nutan as his first and legally wedded wife and Asha Parekh as his second companion in life, whom he brings home much to the dislike of the first lady of the house.

In 1981, came the film ‘Ghungroo Ki Awaaz’ – a tale of haunting and intrigues. Once again, Vijay finds himself out of his depth. Is that a reflection of being a very good director and then come to act under the direction of another director who may not be as well capable. Don’t know whether we should draw this comparison. But then this film is not in my list of impressive performances by Vijay.

In 1984, Chetan Anand produced and directed ‘Hum Rahe Na Hum’ in which Vijay and Shabana Azmi played the lead pair. Then in 2001, he produced and directed ‘Jaana Na Dil Se Door’ in which he and brother Dev played senior roles in a film with an impressive star cast that includes Kamini Kaushal, Mohnish Behl, Moushumi Chatterji, Indrani Bannerjee, Dinesh Hingoo and Vikram Gokhale.

Vijay also appeared in a mini series on TV in 1994, titled ‘Tehkikaat’, in the role of Sam D’Silva, an investigator.

Readers would remember that Alfred Hitchcock always made it point to appear in his own films in a fleeting cameo appearance. That was his signature mark in his films, and the audiences would eagerly await to catch his appearance as they viewed his films for the first time. Vijay Anand has also a similar reputation, albeit we are not sure we have tracked down his cameos in all the films that he directed. A brief list of what I have been able to compile.

He appears in ‘Funtoosh’ (1956) as a young out-of-work writer, who meets Funtoosh (Dev Anand) after he is released from the mental hospital. Funtoosh gifts him a pen to write.

Then in ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne’ (1963) he appears in the stairwell of Qutab Minar, wearing spectacles, walking down the stairs with two other persons, as Dev and Nutan are busy with their amorous inclinations singing “Dil Ka Bhanwar Karey Pukaar”.

In ‘Guide’ (1965), we hear his voice, as an unknown stranger is asking about Raju guide on the railway platform. Just a very brief dialogue.

In ‘Jewel Thief’ (1967), we hear his voice on the phone, in a brief conversation with Helen.

In ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970) he appears very briefly in the role of a spy, a fleeting cameo.

Again in 1970 ‘Johnny Mera Naam’, we hear his voice very briefly as an officer of Nepal Police greets Iftekhar at the Kathmandu airport, welcoming him to Nepal.

Here is a very interesting on screen appearance trivia. Hollywood producer and director, Mike Judge of the ‘Beavis And Butthead’ fame, was a great fan of Vijay Anand. In fact, in his animated film ‘Beavis And Butthead Do America’, there is a song being played in a casino in Las Vegas. On stage, among the musicians, there is a guitar player accompanying the singer. Mike Judge had based this character on Vijay Anand. The song in that film is ‘Love Roller Coaster’, available on YouTube; just click on the link.

A brief list of shelved films of Vijay Anand.

After ‘Rajput’ (1982) and before ‘Main Tere Liye’ (1988), Vijay Anand launched ‘Dekha Jaayega’ with Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff. Anil backed out at last moment. After a brief gap, the film was planned again with Saif Ali in place of Anil, but was later shelved.

In 1988, he planned the film ‘Dosti Ka Taqaaza’ starring Mithun and Govinda. It was later shelved.

He appeared in the film ‘Insha Allaah’ as the hero opposite to Zarina Wahab. The film was later shelved.

He directed ‘Chura Lenge Ankhon Se Kajal’ (1992) with Akshay Kumar and Kareena Karishma Kapoor. This film was also shelved.

In 1997 he starred in and directed the NFDC (National Film Development Corporation) film ‘Nyaymurty Krishnamurty’. This film also did not see the light of the day.

In the 1990s, he also started working on another film ‘Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas’, which could not be completed, probably did not go beyond the planning stage.

OK, so today’s song. It is contributed by Avinash ji. The film is ‘Ghungroo Ki Awaaz’. The story is of a family conspiracy with shades of reminders from the film ‘Mera Saaya’. The protagonist falls in love, the lady dies in confusing circumstances, then she returns as a ghost to haunt the man. The plot finally nails down another family member, who is attempting to get rid of the protagonist, for the sake of inheritance. There are maybe some more films that are based on this scenario.

The music is by RD Burman, the words are from the pen of Vijay Anand himself and Kishore Kumar is the playback voice.

A heartfelt salute to this celluloid artist who donned many a hat in his career, and had left behind a memorable legacy.

Hullo Atuldom

Listening to music is a pastime. And if it is film songs – all the more good. Plus if it is HFM I couldn’t ask for more- anyone who knows me knows this. Fellow atulites included. Followers of the blog also are aware that “vividh bharati” the radio station, is my reminder diary.

So soon as I heard the program remembering Parveen Babi – of the lustrous hair- I looked for hitherto unposted songs and found many possibilities.

I have zeroed in on a song where she is romancing Jeetendra or trying to stop him from getting into trouble. I must admit that I know two songs from this movie, one of which, a Kishore Kumar- Asha Bhonsle duet Naye puraane saal mein ek raat baaki has been posted by Sudhirji in 2014.

The movie “Raksha” had a total of five songs, the handiwork of the trusted pair of RD Burman- Anand Bakshi. The movie was supposed to be a spy movie with Jeetendra’s character having the code name ‘Agent 116’. For added measure Parveen Babi also had two names – Chanda and Bijli. Today we have the Jeetendra lip syncing to Mohd. Rafi and Asha is the female playback.

Thinking of the beautiful Parveen Babi on the occasion of her anniversary.


Song-Main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do (Raksha)(1981) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

Today (7 january 2020) is the 63rd birthday of Reena Roy (DoB 7 january 1957). She made her debut in Hindi movies with B R Ishara who cast her in “Zaroorat”(1972) in a “bold” role. She was considered suitable for songs that are these days considered item songs. “Jaise Ko Taisa”(1973) may not be remembered today, but someone like me associate this movie with the song “able saawan mein jee dare rimjhim tan pe paani gire”. This song was picturised on Reena Roy and Jeetendra.

Reena Roy formed a hit pair with Shatrughan Sinha beginning with “Kallicharan”(1976) followed by “Vishwanath”(1978)- 16 movies in all. She also formed a hit pair with Sunil Dutt. She figured in “Naagin”(1976), “Jaani Dushman”(1979) etc with Sunil Dutt.

Reena Roy’s pairing with Jeetendra in typical Madrasi family dramas led to some memorable tear jerkers viz. Apnapan(1977), Badalte Rishtey(1978), Asha(1980), Pyaasa Saawan(1982), Arpan(1983) etc (22 movies in all). She won Filmfare award for best supporting actress for her role in “Apnapan”(1977).

Reena Roy also got to work with Rajesh Khanna, after he was no longer a superstar. They worked together in four movies. One such movie was “Dhanwan”(1983). Here Reena Roy plays the widow of Rakesh Roshan- another of her “strong” roles that she was known for in 1980s.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Dhanwaan”(1981). This song is sung by Lata. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar.

The song is picturised as a stage dance song where Rajesh Khanna has bought the entire show and he is the only one in the hall watching the performance. The same situation would later arise with Jaya Prada and Amitabh Bachchan is another movie, viz “Sharaabi”(1984). 🙂

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

Remembering Mohammed Rafi Sahab on his 95th birth anniversary :

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s post is for a song from the 1981 release “Zamaane ko Dikhaana Hai” which was produced and directed by Nasir Hussain. It marked the debut of Padmini Kolhapure as an adult; prior to this she had acted as a child star in numerous movies. The music department was handled by Majrooh Sultanpuri and R D Burman. The songs were play-backed by Asha Bhonsle, Shailendra Singh, Mohd. Rafi and Pancham. Nasir Hussain took a few scenes from his “Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hain” – song on train top; runaway girl from “Caravan” and a song & dance competition inspired from “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin”. Additionally, there are multiple songs in a scene as in “Yaadon Ki Baraat” and “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin”.

The story of the movie was very simple and straight: – a rich man, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo (may his soul rest in peace) has two sons Ramesh (Randhir Kapoor in a guest appearance) and Ravi (Rishi Kapoor). Ramesh (the older son) loves and marries a not-so-rich girl and so is banished from the household. All this happens during the absence of the younger Ravi who convinces his dad to forgive his BHAIYYA and sets out to bring his brother back. He finds that his bhaiyya and bhabhi are dead leaving their baby in the care of the bhabhi’s sister Kanchan (Padmini Kolhapure). Now his job is to convince Kanchan of his good intentions, fall in love with her in the process and take her & his nephew home but not before the movie runs through its set of twists and turns. Then there is also the rich man’s bad brother to take care of before the movie comes to an ‘ALL IS WELL THAT ENDS WELL’ close.

The movie had fairly popular songs, two of which are already on the blog. Today’s song is a multi- version song. Also, one of the version forms part of the multiple song set that I mentioned. In one version we have a song and dance competition where Vijay Arora (guest appearance) along with his partner (Aarti Gupta- also in guest appearance) challenges Rishi to the floor. But he is too drunk to get off the chair. So, Padmini takes to the floor sings & moves a leg and Rishi Kapoor joins and they compete with good support from the kids in the audience.

The second version with different stanzas has a drunk Padmini leading the song where the lovers fantasize about their future. We had Mohd. Rafi and Asha Bhosle giving their voices to the two songs.

This movie released about a year after Rafi saab’s death. This post is also to celebrate the 95th birth anniversary of Padmashri Mohd Rafi.
Rafi saab- the man who started his career in films in 1944 with a song under Shyam Sunder’s baton. In the career that spanned 36 years he had lent his voice for all the actors who have graced the silver screen in that time frame. He also appeared on-screen in two films. He was the favourite singer of an entire generation and the following generation too. People loved his Halke-Phulke songs as much as his classical based songs. He had great control on his voice and could go full-throated or soft in the same song. Don’t know why god stopped making singers like him and no matter how much one sounded like Rafi saab they couldn’t sing like him and none of his clones or apes or people who claimed to have been inspired by him reached that height of popularity. And I have heard and read in various places that he was a very humble human being. Like the song which Amitabh sang in a movie (in Mohd. Aziz’s voice) in 1990 “na phankaar tujhsa tere baad aaya, Mohd. Rafi tu bahut yaad aaya”; we, his fans, too miss him.

Wishing that Rafi Saab was still with us and thanking god for giving us such a divine-voiced singer let us enjoy today’s song.

“Waardaat”(1981) was produced and directed by Ravikant Nagaich for Gopi Enterprises, Bombay. This movie had Mithun Chakraborty, Kajal Kiran, Shakti Kapoor, Kalpana Iyer, Iftekhar,Birbal, Kesto Mukherjee, Jagdeep, Prem Bedi, Manorama, Praveen Paul, Thyagraj, Randhir, Dinesh Hingoo, Prem Kumar, Sharat etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. They were sung by five singers.

Today (7 november 2019) is the 71st birthday of Usha Uthup. On this occasion, here is a song from “Waardaat”(1981). This song is sung by Usha Uthup and Bappi Lahiri. Ramesh Pant is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song is picturised on Kalypana Iyer and Mithun Chakraborty.

Mithun Chakrborty enjoyed vast popularity among the chawanni chhaap movie goers of those days :). Such audiences were to be found all over India, and more so in eastern part of the country. Front stall movieoers of Bihar (including present day Jharkhand) “ditched” their own Shatrughan Sinha and became fans of Mithun Chakraborty. 🙂

I was among the small minority who did not like Mithun Chakraborty movies. 🙂

If teenagers of Maharashtra celebrated Ganpati festival, then teenagers in Eastern parts celebrated Saraswati Puja in a similarly grand way. Playing hindi movie music in these Saraswati Puja pandals used to be a major activity of these saraswati Puja festivities. Operating the record player and thus deciding which songs to play used to be a much sought after task. I had the proud privilege of being the record player operator in early 1980s at Ranchi. 🙂 I recall playing “disco” songs of those days, including the song under discussion. 🙂

Most Saraswati Puja organisers used to be academically challenged. They would bring their (largely untouched) textbooks in the pandal to be kept at the feet of goddess Saraswati, hoping that pooja thus performed would magically transfer the contents of those text books into their brains. 🙂

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, “Waardaat”(1981) makes its debut in the blog.

Hullo to Atuldom

Its been a few weeks since I wrote a post. I have missed the birthdates of a few of my favourites. I won’t put the blame of these misses on the festival season as then we will have to excuse Atulji his numerous blank dates on the blog which we don’t do; we expect at least one post per day from him.

I get notifications on my mailbox from one of the many music compilation sites which I had stumbled upon a few years ago. I don’t open mail notifications that often specially from this site but today I did. It had songs which I had not heard in years. Today’s list began with the song “my name is Suzy” from “An Evening in Paris” and then played a few numbers in various genres.

One of the songs made me sit up. I had never heard this song which was in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. I quickly googled for it and found that it was a song penned by Amit Khanna and Bappi Lahiri was the composer. And no, it was not a disco song or nor was it what we generally expect from the Bappi Lahiri baton. I heard it twice and then went looking for its video. I had another shock. It was picturised on Helen and no it was not a typical Helen-style item or cabaret. The expressions she gave in that song reminded me of another Helen- Bappi Lahiri song.

All this put me on a search mode for the details of the song which I heard today. One thing it did was remind me of the song from “Paanch Qaidi”- “Jeena to hai par ae dil kahaan”. But here are the details of the song- it is from a movie called “Josh” which was released in 1981. It starred Vidya Sinha, Helen, Sarika, Sheetal, Amjad Khan, Anil Dhawan, Raj Kiran, Deven Verma, Shakti Kapoor etc. The movie was directed by Raj Sippy. It was his second film after “Inkaar”. The common factor in the two movies being Amjad Khan, Vidya Sinha, Helen and Gurbachan. From what I read about the movie on IMDB.com Amjad Khan played a central character and Vidya Sinha had a role which was different from what she was known to play. If the movie had been successful, we would have had all the main actors in “Hatke” roles but that was not to be.

After hearing the song, I remembered that November 21st was the birthday of our dear Helen. She turned 81 yesterday (21 october 2019). Here is wishing her a healthy life with all her friends and dear ones around her. Here is the song which I liked hope all the followers of the blog like it too.

Today (4 october 2019) is the 67th birthday of Shailendra Singh (DoB 4 october 1952). It is so unbelievable to realise that he is 67 years old. It appears only yesterday that he had made his debut as a playback singer in “Bobby”(1973) as a 20 year old playback singer !

On this occasion, here is a song from “Aapas Ki Baat”(1981). This song is sung by Shailendra Singh and Lata. Dayanath Pandey is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anu Malik.

The song is picturised as an expression of love song on Raj Babbar and Poonam Dhillon.

Today (28 september 2019) is the 90th birthday of Lata Mangeshkar (DoB 28 september 1929).

She started her playback career in 1940s and she went on to sing till early 2000s, viz for seven decades ! Mindboggling indeed.

She sang just under 5700 songs in Hindi movies according to our estimate. The blog has 3475 of her songs and so we are one of the rare places on internet where so many of her songs can be accessed at one place.

Another 2000 odd of her songs remain uncovered. it is a matter of time before her remaining songs (that are available) will also find representation in the blog.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Dard”(1981). “Dard”(1981) was produced by Shyam Sundar Shivdasani and directed by Ambreesh Sangal fo Murghan Enterprises, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Poonam Dhillon, Om Shivpuri, Krishn Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Shashi Kiran, Madhup Sharma, Kamaldeep, Harjeet, Poornima Jairam, Mazhar Khan (2), Master Raju etc wih special appearance by Ranjeeta.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four songs have already been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Dard”(1981) to appear in the song. This song is sung by Lata. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyam.

The song is picturised as an expression of love song on Hema Malini and Rajesh Khanna. The song is not lip synced by Hema Malini rather it gets plays in the background.

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Naa jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah

Sanwar sanwar gayee
Nikhar nikhar gayee

Banaa ke aainaa tujhe ae jaaneman
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Bikhraa hai kaajal fizaa mein
Bheegi bheegi hai shaamein
Boondon ki rimjhim se jaagi
Aag thhandi hawaa mein
Aajaa sanam
ye haseen aag ham
Len dil mein basaa
Naa jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Aanchal kahaan
main kahaan hoon
Ye mujhe hosh kyaa hai
Ye bekhudi toone di hai
Pyaar kaa ye nashaa hai
Sun le zaraa
saaz e dil gaa rahaa
Hai naghmaa teraa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Kaliyon ki ye sej mehke
Raat jaage milan ki
Kho jaayein dhadkan mein teri
Dhadkanen mere mann ki
Aa paas aa

Main jaaun samaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa

न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
निखर निखर गयी
संवर संवर गयी
निखर निखर गयी
संवर संवर गयी
बनाके आइना तुझे अय जानेमन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

बिखरा है काजल फिजा में
भीगी भीगी है शामें
बूंदों की रिमझिम से जागी
आग ठंडी हवा में
आजा सनम
ये हसीं आग हम
ले दिल में बसा
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

आँचल कहाँ
मैं कहाँ हूँ
ये मुझे होश क्या है
ये बेखुदी तूने दी है
प्यार का ये नशा है
सुन ले ज़रा
साज़ ए दिल गा रहा
है नगमा तेरा
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

कलियों की ये सेज महके
रात जागे मिलन की
खो जाएँ धड़कन में तेरी
धडकने मेरे मन की
आ पास आ
तेरी हर सांस में
मैं जाऊं समा
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
निखर निखर गयी
संवर संवर गयी
बना के आइना तुझे अय जानेमन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The previous post in this series was delayed by about a week or so. And today’s post, I have been saving this medley song to write about this person, but not sure about which date to bring it on. A chance reminder three days ago, brought up this song and this post, almost immediately.  But then, other priorities intervened as usual, and this post is late by three days. 🙂

The person I write about, in this post, is Ravi Baswani. Yes, the sidekick companion of Naseeruddin Shah in the cult classic ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ of the year 1983.  Coincidental that the posts for these two friends are coming up one after the other. And both are in the same series, and both posts are a medley of songs from the earlier years. One difference is the nature and the composition of the medley of songs – I will come to this point again a little later in the write up. And the second difference – for Naseer we celebrated a birthday anniversary, but for Ravi, the occasion is his remembrance day. Yes – 27th July in the year 2010, he suffered a massive cardiac arrest, quite unexpectedly, and was no more. He was in Haldwani, on the way back to Delhi from Nainital, where he had gone for location scouting for his first full length feature film, as a director. In the prime of his health, and on the top with his career in cinema and theatre – leaves a regret in the mind, that it was not a time to go.

Ravi was born on 29th Sept in the year 1946, in the city of Bulandshehar in UP. His father, Balram Singh, was a doctor by profession, and his mother, Shingaar Kaur, a homemaker. Practically everyone who knows him or knows about him, always presume him to be a Sindhi – Baswani <> Vaswani and so on.  Interestingly, he is not. He belongs to a Jat family, whose correct family name is Baswan. How this surname got transformed into Baswani is an interesting tale by itself. It is a case of a clerical zeal.

As per his own description, his father applied for a passport sometimes in the late 1930s. His application form was processed by a Bangla person. It just came to his mind and he decided that the surname ‘Baswan’ is spelt incorrectly. He assumed in his mind that the correct surname should be Vaswani – a name that one is more familiar with. And being a Bengali speaking person, he decided that the spelling of the surname should be Baswani – i.e. the Bangla version of the pronunciation of Vaswani. The passport got processed, and Ravi’s father’s name was transformed to Balram Singh Baswani for good. All for the zeal of a processing official to set right the name of the applicant. As his father appeared for and got selected for study of medicine, his name was taken from the passport as a reference. And surely enough, the doctor’s degree pronounced his name as Baswani. Beyond that point, his father then made no attempts to get the name rectified. And Baswani got carried into the next generation. Of course, all his uncles and cousins were not so affected – the rest of the clan still continues to be Baswan.

He further says that he could have made a choice to revert to his original family name, when he started his filmi career. But then, when he signed up for his debut film – ‘Chashm e Baddoor’, his father had then passed away just a few weeks earlier. Somehow emotionally he felt compelled not to desert his father’s surname, and decided to keep it.  And that is the name he signed up for life then.

The family moved to Delhi in 1946-47 and settled down in the Connaught Place area. Ravi’s education happened at St Columba’s School and Kirori Mal College (Delhi University). As per his own declaration, there is nothing in his lineage before him remotely connected with stage and acting. But inside him, there was an actor that expressed itself, both at school and at college. He made his debut on stage at the age of six, in a school play. As per his own admission, he fell in love with acting and dramas during his years at the Kirori Mal College.

The dramatics society at the Kirori Mal College, called simply ‘The Players’ is one of the most vibrant, and famous theatre groups in Delhi. Founded by the legendary dramatist, Frank Thakurdas in 1957, this theatre group boasts of some of the biggest names in theatre and cinema, who learned their craft here. The list will impress you – Amitabh Bachchan, Dinesh Thakur, Shakti Kapoor, Satish Kaushik, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, and many more names of the current TV and cinema scene. During his college days, he won the Delhi University’s Best Actor award, at the university lever drama competition.

Ravi says that of course, he had no intention of pursuing acting as a career.  After college, he quite dutifully joined the sales department of a large company. He worked there for two years. During the later part of these two years, something happened. Ravi came down with a case of jaundice, which he himself attributes to excess of alcohol, and was resting up, away from work. During this time, he went to see a play one day. The play was the iconic ‘Evam Indrajeet’, by the famous dramatist Badal Sircar. It was directed by Shyamanand Jalan and Kalyan Chatterjee played the title role. The play is based on the legend of Sisyphus from the Greek mythology. Sisyphus is cursed with the task of pushing and rolling a large rock up a hill. When he reaches the top, the rock rolls down the other side, and he starts all over again, pushing the boulder up the hill now from the other side. This lifelong curse simply continues forever without any respite.

Ravi says, it suddenly struck him right between the eyes – that is what his life was all about. And he asked this question of himself – is that all that there is to life? As soon as he was well enough to go the office, he went into his manager’s room and tendered his resignation, bidding a good farewell to a budding corporate career, once for all.

With no plan for the future in mind, and very little finances to support himself, he took on free lancing in the Delhi theatre circle. He remembers with fascination, the privilege that he had to work with stalwarts of the theatre world such as BM Shah, Mohan Upreti, Om Shivpuri, MK Raina, Joy Michael, Bansi Kaul and Ebrahim Alkazi!

Realizing that acting alone would not support a life, he also started training himself to be stage designer and director. During this time, he got together with some other free lancers like himself and set up a theatre group which was, quite interestingly named Non-Group. In a matter of a short time, this group became a force to reckon with in Delhi’s theatre circuit. Their crowning achievement was organizing non-stop 24 hour play festivals on the leap day (29th Feb) in the years 1976 and 1980, which included dance, drama, music, films and the fine arts.

Ravi notes that the turning point in this wayward journey as a freelancer came his way close to the end of 1970s. Naseeruddin Shah, a very old and close friend on the theatre circuit, landed in Delhi with the script of the film ‘Sparsh’ (1980) in his hands. As Ravi went over the script with Naseer, he writes that he was convinced – here was a National Award in the making for Naseer. His gut feel did pan out as reality a couple of years down the road, as Naseer bagged his first National Award as the best actor, for his sensitive portrayal of a blind man’s challenges in the apathetic world of the normal people.

Ravi writes that after going through the script, he was quite sure it had no role for him, but being the buddy of Naseer, he would have been quite content to even be his light boy. As the things unfolded, Sai Paranjpye, the producer director of this film, assigned the task of props design and management for the film to Ravi. This was his first real introduction to the world of cinema. The one great positive outcome of this endeavor was establishing a great relationship with Sai Paranjpye. So much that when Sai started work on ‘Chashm e Baddoor’ (1981), this time around Ravi had a very meaty role – his debut in the film world, in front of the camera this time.

His role in ‘Chashm e Baddoor’ was nominated for the Filmfare’s Best Comedian award. This was followed up with two more nominations in 1983, for – oh so quite expectedly – ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ and ‘Ab Aayega Mazaa’. He bagged the award for ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ in face of stiff competition against himself (for ‘Ab Aayega Mazaa’), and Satish Shah (for ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’). That does create a record of sorts – three nominations for Filmfare award for the first three films of his career; quite so.

Quite early one might say, but he moved into the small screen in 1984 with the comedy serial ‘Idhar Udhar’. And very soon, turned a director for TV serials with ‘Hakke Bakke’ in 1988, and more with ‘Kisse Miyan Biwee Ke’ and ‘Panchhi’. And then on to Sony channel with ‘Just Mohabbat’ and ‘Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin’.

Twenty five feature films in about three decades. He picks the following as his best performances – ‘Ab Aayega Mazaa’ (1983), ‘Yaatna’ (1985), ‘Monsoon’ (2005) and ‘Yun Hota To Kya Hota’ (2006). He worked with children theatre a lot – about 400 plays he directed for children of ages from 5 to 17. Best of my work, he says – it left him being a child, permanently.

And then, at the peak of his active life, and in the midst of numerous projects, he was gone – just like that, nine years ago.

Coming to the song – another unlisted repeat song, or rather a medley of songs, from the film ‘Chashm e Baddoor’. This film is one of the most memorable comedies in my listings. It is funny tale of three very close friends, college going students, who live through the most normal college going life and activities for singles of the male species i.e. pursuing girls to strike a relationship. The three friends – Siddharth (Farooque Sheikh), Jomo (Ravi Baswani) and Omi (Rakesh Bedi), share an apartment. There are fun capers of sharking cigarettes on loan from the corner pan-beedi waala (role played by Saeed Jafrey), biking around aimlessly – three on a mobike, efforts to catch attention of ladies, who would be less than interested in their types, etc. Then one day, a new family moves into the neighborhood. There is a young lady Neha in that family (role played by Deepti Naval). And once having seen her, they, or at least the two – Omi and Jomo, are desperate to contact her, and try to build a friendship. With great difficulty they are able to locate her address. And then there is a wager. They will each make an effort to strike a friendship with the lady, and may the best man win.

Omi goes in first, he is mistaken for plumber, asked to make plumbing repairs. Of course he does not know the right end of the tap or the wrench, and has to escape from the house with his dignity and physical features intact.

Jomo goes in second. He masquerades as the younger brother of a Bombay film producer who has come to Delhi in search of fresh talent. He gets into the house, but his outcome is worse than Omi – watch the video clip.

The fun part is that both of them, on return to their penthouse apartment (called a barsaati in Delhi – a single isolated room on the terrace of a house), both of them spin a false yarn on how they were able to impress the lady, and have a initial go ahead for a relationship.

The clip that I have uploaded, gives the Jomo episode from start to finish – the way he loses his dignity and also physical features, and the tall tale that he tells to his friends on return. This clip is a favorite – vintage Ravi Baswani at his best.

And in the bogus and fictitious tale that he spins for his friends, he falls back on a string of old Hindi film songs, to create and convey the lovey-dovey mood of success in setting up a friendly relation with the lady.

Unlike the previous episode, where we had a typical set of songs – all Rafi-Shammi Kapoor songs – this medley has a mix of male, female and duet songs, with multiple singing voices. The treat in this medley is Ravi Baswani, taking on the mantle of Dilip Kumar, Rehman, Joy Mukherjee, Shammi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Sanjeev Kumar, Feroze Khan, Dev Anand, and Sunil Dutt – all short cameos of a few seconds each. My personal favorite is the imitation of Dev Anand – one just has to see to believe it.

Closing this episode and also bringing to close the brief bio on this multi-talented actor and comedian – he never pursued a career. It was the career that kept hounding after him all his life. Alas, gone too soon. Good bye Ravi. . .

[Author’s Note: A fair part of the material for the write up on Ravi Baswani is taken from Ravi’s personal website, which, interestingly, is still active.]

Blog Day :

3996 Post No. : 15092 Movie Count :

4142

Today 27th June 2019, is the eightieth birth anniversary of Rahul Dev Burman (27th June, 1939 – 4th Jan, 1994). We fondly remember him on this occasion and will be always thankful to him for giving us all those great nostalgic songs, great music and many everlasting gems.

As I was looking for a special song for this occasion and while going through his filmography, I decided to select a song penned by Nida Fazli. I thought they worked together in very few films so I was interested to introduce a new movie and I finally zeroed on this lesser known movie ‘Mangal Sutra’ (1981). I think even the song of today is a very lesser known and this might be because of this movie going unnoticed then. Even the filmography of RDB on ‘wiki’ does not have this movie in that list. (Since I could not prepare the details of RDB-Nida Fazli movies together I am deferring it for a post in the future).

‘Mangal Sutra’ was directed by B Vijay for Gaurav Films International, Madras. It was produced by Ravi Kumar. Mrs. Chandrika Shah and Mrs. Era Kalra were Associate Producers of this movie. It had Rekha, Anant Nag, Prema Narayan, Jagdeep, Madan Puri, and Om Shivpuri. The supporting cast included Keshto Mukherjee, Asit Sen, Rajendranath, BM Vyas, Chand Usmani, Jayshree T, Meena T, Guddi, Jezbel, Swaraj, NS Bedi, Shankar Singh, Vinod, Neeta, Sharma, Jailata, Baby Reema, Viju Khote and Madhu. Shashi Puri makes a guest appearance in the movie. And this movie introduced Master Vineet.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by MD Sundar. Dialogues were written by Snehlata Verma. Editing of this movie was done by P Bhakthavathsalam. Vijaykumar Raichura was the Associate Director of this movie. The movie was passed by Censor Board on 13.03.1981.

This movie had total five songs penned by Kavi Pradeep (one song) and Nida Fazli (four songs). Asha Bhonsle, Bhupinder Singh, Dilraj Kaur, Lata Mangeshkar, Meena and SP Balasubramaniam had given their voices to the songs in this movie. Music for this film was composed by RD Burman.

One movie by the same title was also made in 1947 (as per note in HFGK-Vol-VI), however no songs from this movie seem to be available as of now.

In the movie this song happens to be on the ‘suhaag raat’ of Anant Nag and Rekha. When I listened to this song for preparation of this post I remember to have listen it somewhere earlier but I had forgotten it. This song is nice duet and as mentioned above in the movie it is on the ‘milan ki raat’ where the newlywed couple sings this song. And for that matter I think this song is for all couples even if they are not ‘just newly wed’, they can enjoy it on anniversary or anniversaries or even on the ‘silver –jubilee’ of their marriage 🙂 . The song is sung by my favourite singers Asha Bhonsle and Bhupinder Singh.

It is unbelievable that twenty five years have passed since our beloved RD Burman has left us in 1994. He left us in January 1994. I was posted at Kota then. I got married in June (on his birth anniversary) and I remember the first Hindi movie me and wife watched together at Kota was ‘1942 – A Love Story’. . .

Once again thanking Pancham Da for the lovely, beautiful, exciting music and moments its music has given to us. Let us now enjoy today’s song. With this song the movie ‘Mangalsutra’ (1981) makes its debut on the blog.
