Song-Aaj ki aawaaz jaag ae insaan (Aaj Ki Aawaaz)(1984) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Hasan Kamaal, MD-Ravi

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Aaj ki aawaaz
Aaj ki aawaaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Zindagi kitni
Behifaazat hai
Kal bhi aayegaa
Kya jamaanat hai
Din pareshan hai raat hai hairaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Dar ke saaye mein
Gar jawaan hongi
Ye nayee naslen kal kahan hongi
Hosh me aa ja ab to aye nadaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Kya nagar hai ye
Kaisi basti hai
Ya to mitti se jaan sasti hai
Zindagi mushkil maut hai aasaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Dekh ghar aangan loot nahi jaayen
Pyaar ke rishtey chhut nahi jaayen
Kal bachane ka aaj hi kar dhyaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

“Phulwaari”(1984) was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Mukul Dutt for Rajshree Productions. The movie had Shashi Puri, Debashree Roy, Rakesh Bedi, Iftekhar, inesh Hingoo, Ashok Saraf, Mohan Choti, Pallavi Dutt(Introducing), Benjamin Gilani, Jankidas, Viju Khote, Sulochana Latkar, Mehmood Junior, Ram Mohan, Kumari Naaz, Jayashre.T., Shivraj, Rajinder Nath, Kishore Kapoor, Pardesi, Chaand, Vinod Chauhan etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Phulwaari”(1984) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Haimanti Shukla, Yesudas and chorus. Govind Moonis is the lyricist. Music is composed by Raj Kamal.

The song is picturised on Debashree Roy, Shashi Puri and Kishore Kapoor. It is a situation of a lady making her beloved jealous by making advances on another man. I can identify Debashree Roy, but I have no idea who is Shashi Puri and who is Kishore Kapoor in the picturisation. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

“Jaagir”(1984) was produced and directed by Pramod Chakraborty for Pramod Films, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Zeenat Aman, Mithun Chakraborty, Shoma Anand, Amrish Puri, Preeti Sapru, Danny Denzongpa, Ranjeet, Beena Bannerjee, Azad, Bharat Bhushan, Birbal, R.S.Chopra, Bob Christo, Tarun Ghosh, Iftekhar, Kamal Kapoor, Praveen Kumar, Pran, Subroto Mahapatra, Baby Pinky, Sujeet Kumar, Mac Mohan, Master Ravi, Amol Sen, Asit Sen, Sunder Taneja, Ashalata Wabgaonkar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it.

One of these songs was a new year song. Today (1 january 2020) is an ideal occasion to cover this song.

So here is this new year song from “Jaagir”(1984). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a stage dance performance on Zeenat Aman, Dharmendra etc. House full audience, including Raj Kishore, Subroto Mahapatra, Amrish Puri, Shoma Anand, Ranjeet, Preeti Sapru, Praveen Kumar,Sunder Taneja(anouncer) are present on the occasion. Amrish Puri and Ranjeet receive call (on landline phone, brought to them on their chairs) that their nefarious business has been foiled and the main person was donning an orange boiler suit. And Ranjeet recalls having seen this boiler suited man onstage. So he obviously plans his next move as soon as the song finishes. 🙂 Our villains never act till the song performance is over !

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy new year 2020. 2020 has a nice sring about it, especially because we are already familiar with 2020 format of cricket :). Let us hope that this year will see quick fire action in our lives and also in the blog, similar to the action that we are used to seeing in a 2020 game of cricket.

With this song, “Jaagir”(1984) makes its debut in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom
December is filled with birthdays of superstars and super actors. We began the month remembering Dev Anand, birthdays of Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, & Dilip Kumar followed. Today is the 69th birthday of Rajnikanth, the darling of the masses in South India, he was also decently successful in Bollywood.

He is an actor who started out portraying negative characters and near-bit roles much like Shatrughan Sinha of Bollywood. He has worked his way up the ranks to superstardom and his best period began with “Billa” (1980) and he hasn’t left the hearts and minds of his fans- much like his inspiration- he has admitted many-a-times that he is a fan of Amitabh Bachchan. And after being cast in roles of antagonist from 1975-77 in Tamil and Telugu 1978 saw the release of “Shankar Salim Simon” which was a remake of Manmohan Desai’s “Amar Akbar Anthony”; this was followed by remakes of “Majboor”, “Trishul”, “Deewar”, “Namak Halal”, “Don” (Billa was its remake), “Lawaaris” etc and I seem to have seen most of these. I would love to hear the feelings he had when he got to act with his inspiration Big B in his debut Hindi movie- “Andha Kanoon” (incidentally this too was remade in Tamil but with Vijaykanth acting the role played by Rajni in the Hindi version). We had many Hindi movies in the 80s which were remakes of Rajni’s south Indian originals.
I
His super successful Tamil movie “Moondru Mugam” meaning three-faces was made as “John Jani Janardhan” in with Rati Agnihotri and Poonam Dhillon as female leads. It was the story of an honest police officer John Mendez (Rajnikanth as father) who lives a middle-class lifestyle with his wife, Cheryl (Poonam Dhillon), and a maidservant, Fatimabi (Dulari). John busts a gang that makes illicit liquor and holds them in a cell, bringing him into confrontation with their leader, Gajanand ‘Gajju’ (Kadar Khan), who goes to threaten John, but is himself arrested and sentenced. When he is acquitted, he decides to avenge his humiliation by entrapping John and killing him. Cheryl gives birth to twin sons and passes away. A rich childless couple, Brijmohan Gupta (Utpal Dutt) adopts one of the twins and names him Janardhan (Rajnikanth -son number 1), while the second is named Jani (Rajnikanth son number 2) and lives with Fatimabi. Twenty-five years later, Janardhan is an American-returned young man, in love with Madhu (Rati Agnihotri). On his birthday party he comes face to face with a man named Gopaldas (played by south actor Thyagarajan), and his entire personality changes as he is taken over by the vengeful spirit of John. Subsequently, Gopaldas is killed, and Janardhan is arrested and tried in Court. And then there is the usual climax when the brothers discover each other etc. (seen this movie a long time ago in Tamil not in Hindi)

Today on the occasion of Rajnikanth’s birthday a song from “John Jani Janardhan” which had Laxmi-Pyare’s music and Anand Bakshi’s lyrics. S P Balasubramaniam and S Janaki have given playback for this lively number which has Rati matching Rajnikanth’s colourful T-shirts with her lovely white dresses.

Rati who made her debut into Hindi movies with “Ek Duje Ke Liye” opposite Kamal Hasan in 1981 turned a year on 10th December. She was Rajnikanth’s co-star in many south Indian movies but I think this was the only time she acted with him in Hindi. Here is wishing her too a very (belated) Happy Birthday.

First of all, my apologies for my infrequent appearances here. Even calling it a cameo is unfair to a cameo, because, to be honest, it is not even that. It is more like, a “blink and you miss” situation.

Anyway, here I am today, back with a post. The occasion is the Remembrance Day of someone very special to the Hindi film industry, and also to me. He has millions of fans around the world and is easily one of the legends of the industry.

I am talking about Kishore Kumar, of course.

I’ve written about Kishore Kumar many times in the past. And yet, when Avinash ji requested me to write a post for this occasion, I immediately agreed. Such is my love for Kishore Kumar that even if I repeat myself and bore my readers in the process 🙂 , I could not bring myself to say no.  🙂

The problem then was to get the required writing mood back. What they say about writing is very true. If you don’t write for an extended period of time, you gradually lose the ability to do so. That is why many writers practise their writing everyday, by writing at least a minimum number of words.

When I wrote to Avinash ji saying “Mere thoughts gather nahin ho rahe. I have lost the ability to write”, he replied “Aap Kishore Kumar ke gaane suniye aur din bhar sunte rahiye. Thoughts will come, I am sure.” 🙂

So I did listen to a few songs – predictably songs of ‘my’ era. “Khizaan Ke Phool”, “Jeevan Se Bhari Teri Aankhen”, “Teri Duniya Se”, “Hum Bewafa Hargiz Na The”, “O Mere Dil Ke Chain”, “Ye Shaam Mastaani” and a few others.

I think that might have helped a bit, because here I am.

Anyway, coming to Kishore Kumar.

The years just roll by – it is already 32 years since he left us.

He was just 58 at the time – far too young to go.

But like they say, it is not the years in your life that count, it is the life in your years.

And Kishore Kumar had plenty of life in his years.

No one will dispute that Kishore Kumar was the No.1 all-rounder in the industry. There have been a few others who have had multiple skills. Manoj Kumar was actor, writer, director, producer. Mehmood was also quite an all-rounder.

But Kishore was in a league of his own, because in each of his roles, he left a mark. Of course he is best-known as a singer, but even today many remember his acting, especially in comedy roles like in ‘Dilli Ka Thug’, ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’, ‘Half Ticket’ and many other films.

But there was so much more to Kishore Kumar than just comedy. And probably to prove this point, he produced and directed films like ‘Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein’ (1964) and ‘Door Ka Raahi’ (1971). I was stunned when I saw both these films – they have tremendous depth and philosophy, uncommon for the times.

His versatility was not limited to singing, acting, producing and directing though. Kishore Kumar also composed music, for some of his films.  Like the two films mentioned above, whose songs are quite popular to this day. As are the songs of  ‘Jhumroo’ (1961).

This is why I call Kishore Kumar the Gary Sobers of the Hindi film industry. 🙂 He could take on any role, and make a success of it.

But beyond even his multifarious talents, there was Kishore the person. And even as a person, he is quite an inspiration for me. His attitude towards life is something I can only admire.

Those who worked with Kishore Kumar, especially Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, vouch  for his ability to enliven a recording session with his sense of humour, his cracking a joke or pulling someone’s leg. Some people are like this – never a dull moment with them around.

It is not as if Kishore didn’t have low moments, or tough times. Everyone has these – Kishore was no exception. But he never let this affect his professionalism. He was very clear about himself, his philosophy towards life – and he never allowed others to define it for him.

Like he said “Duniya samajhti hai main paagal hoon….main samajhta hoon duniya paagal hai”.

I think, whatever his conflicts with the world might have been, especially later in his life, he was at peace with himself. And that is most important for a human being. Like he told Lata Mangeshkar in an interview in the fag end of his career “I am quite happy”. He expressed a desire to run away from it all, and go to a place which was calling out to him.

Today, on his Remembrance Day, I feel Kishore Kumar found that place and left us in order to go there.

And left us with SUCH a treasure of songs and memories that we are indebted to him for life.

So thank you, thank you, thank you, Kishore Kumar for what you have given us. Speaking purely for myself, as someone who has been part of my life from my very early years, when I listened repeatedly to songs like “Mere Sapnon Ki Raani” and “Ye Shaam Mastaani” on the radio, your impact on my life cannot be described.

Now onto the song for today.

It is a totally new song for me. In fact I have never even heard of the film. Details, including lyrics of the song, have been sent to me by Avinash ji.

This is what he says :

“Zindagi Jeene Ke Liye-1984’ was directed by K.S. Sethumadhavan for ‘Tirupati Chitra Mandir, Bombay’. It was produced by Hastimal.

It had Rakhi Gulzar, Suresh Oberoi, Vijay Arora, Manmohan Krishan, CS Dubey, Krishan Dhawan, Shobhha Khote, Birbal Raj, Raj Kishore, Rakesh Roshan, Tina Munim, Master Rinku, Shah Chaturvedi, Raghvaiyya, Santosh Kumar, Lata Kashmiri, Dolphin and others. Deepa and Ramu make a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.06.1984. However, the movie was re-certified by Censor on 15.12.1987 with a UA certificate (as mentioned in HFGK).

The movie has total seven songs, including the three-part song being presented today (as per HFGK Vol-VI 1981-1985) composed by Rajesh Roshan. HFGK mentions Rajesh Roshan as the lyricist for this movie and the same is mentioned on the vinyl cover of this movie available on online sources, which I guess is correct. (myswar.co also mentions the same). Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Pankaj Udhas and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs in this movie.”

This film, ‘Zindagi Jeene Ke Liye’ (1984), makes its debut entry on this blog today.

The song itself is amazing. I’d never heard it before, but when I heard it for the first time a few days ago, it touched my heart. It also suits this occasion, as it talks of a person who feels he is ready to move on.

Please do listen to this wonderful song. Quite a gem, it is, especially in Kishore Kumar’s voice. Thanks for the song, Avinash ji.

Hullo Atuldom

The 80s was a period when there were a whole set of “Made in South” movies. Movies essentially remakes of popular and successful Telugu, Tamil and Kannada movies. Movies with nearly same formula- one hero and two heroines, both ladies loving the hero equally with the hero behaving courteously with one and loving the other passionately. To add further twist, the heroines will be sisters (as in Tohfa), childhood best friends (as in Raaste Pyar Ke), or meet accidentally and become good friends (as in Maang Bharo Sajna and Asha Jyoti).

All the movies would have good songs which used to be popular in the 80s and 90s but may have been forgotten since. The most important aspect of these movies used to be that one of the heroines would sacrifice her love or never reveal her love so that the other can lead a happy life with her partner/ husband etc. The hero in most of these South-made movies was Jeetendra and the heroines were mostly Rekha, Reena Roy, Shabana Azmi, Moushumi Chatterjee, Jaya Prada or Sridevi. Taking note of the success of Jeetendra in these movies Rajesh Khanna also acted in a few South-made movies.

Asha Jyoti was one of them. The movie had five songs with Anuradha Paudwal, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar as playback singers. Anjaan was the lyricist and Laxmi Pyare were the music directors. One song has been posted from the movie. In that post Atulji has speculated about the status of the relations between the main cast. I have seen this movie a long time back and here is the story of the movie, hope that it clears all speculations. 🙂

Asha Jyoti (1984) had Rajesh Khanna, Reena Roy and Rekha as the main cast. The film was directed by Dasari Narayana Rao, who had also directed Aaj Ka M.L.A. Ram Avtar with Khanna in the lead role and music was given by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The film is remake of Telugu Movie Srivari Muchatlu (1981).

Ramesh Chander (Om Shivpuri), a businessman, asks his son Deepak (Rajesh Khanna), a musician, if he would marry his childhood friend Asha (Rekha), but Deepak keeps declining this idea. Deepak falls in love with one of his fans named Jyoti (Reena Roy), a dancer, and he informs his parents by telegram that he has chosen a girl. Deepak promises to pay off the debts owed by Jyoti’s father. But when Deepak reaches his home in Bombay (now Mumbai), he finds that Ramesh has committed suicide due to bankruptcy. Ramesh expresses his last wish that his second wife and her daughter be taken care of. Deepak is delayed in Bombay and is unable to return to Kashmir.

In Kashmir, Jyoti’s creditor asks her father for money, but Jyoti expresses her inability to pay, so the creditor warns Jyoti’s father she will be in grave trouble. When Deepak does arrive at Jyoti’s house, her father lies, saying that he has married her off to the creditor. Deepak is heartbroken and returns home.

Seth Badri Prasad (Madan Puri), a rich man and childhood friend of Ramesh, bails Deepak out from bankruptcy and gets Ramesh’s creditors to not to file suit against Deepak and to auction the bungalow that he would buy. Deepak feels indebted to Prasad. Badri Prasad had been forcing his friend Ramesh Chander to ask Deepak to marry Asha, daughter of Badri Prasad. After Deepak returns to Bombay, his mother suggests to him that he should now get settled in his life and bring some happiness in his life and so he marries Asha. During the wedding, Deepak observes a woman similar to Jyoti. Deepak searches for the Jyoti lookalike and finds the woman was actually Jyoti.

Now Deepak knows that Jyoti was not married to Hukumchand (Roopesh Kumar) and that her father had lied to him. Jyoti had come to Bombay in search of Deepak and tells him that she is the mother of Deepak’s child. Deepak decides to end his marriage with Asha and to tell Asha the truth, but Jyoti insists that Asha would not be able to remarry as society might discard her. Jyoti asks Deepak to act as if they had never met and be a loyal husband of Asha, so that Jyoti can take care of Deepak’s child.

Later, Jyoti becomes a popular dance teacher in her city. Asha decides to learn dancing form Jyoti and they become close friends. Asha discloses that her husband is not loving her and he does not even come close to her. Jyoti visits Asha’s home and learns that Asha is none other than Deepak’s wife. Jyoti tells Deepak to be a true husband to Asha and give Asha the pleasures of married life.

Asha learns that Jyoti and Deepak were lovers before her marriage to Deepak and suspects they are having an affair. Asha found that Deepak and Jyoti are well-wishers of Asha, are innocent and victims of the unpredictable nature of fate. After coming to know the truth, Asha and Jyoti decide to sacrifice their respective lives to let the other live a nice happy married life with Deepak.

Sitting through the movie was not a pain. I loved the way the ladies (over) dressed in silk sarees and had extra long hair plaited in the traditional South Indian Style complete with a garden full of flowers on their hair and heavy jewellery. There was a time in my life when I yearned to have hair like my idol -Rekha- sported in these movies. These movies also showed that Rekha was an artist who followed all instructions of the choreographer and enacted the semi-classical dances that were there in the movie, as can be seen in the song of this movie that is already posted. She also had large eyes that conveyed a variety of emotions.

Today’s song comes towards the end of the movie where we have Asha dressing up Jyoti as a bride and trying to rectify the wrong that fate has delivered on Deepak and his Jyoti (the movies in this genre excelled in naming their characters). We also see that Deepak and Jyoti are not comfortable with this turn of events but Asha prevails on them and we have this Asha Bhonsle play backed song.

I am sure the readers have guessed why I chose a song that has the “oh! so beautiful!” Rekha for today’s post. Yes, she turns a year older today and it has become a compulsion for me that write atleast a small post to wish her.
Wish you a very happy birthday Rekhaji.


Song-Aayi pehli milan ki wo raat (Asha Jyoti)(1984) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

ho o o
kitne saawan pyaase tarse
tabhi suhaagan raat aati hai
aati hai toh
pyaar se mann ka kora aanchal bhar jaati hai
kora aanchal bhar jaati hai ae
pyaase mann pe huyi kya barsaat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

tan se tan ka milan nahin yeh
tan se tan ka milan nahin yeh
yeh hai do saanson ka sangam
apne jiya ko bas mein rakhna
dil ki dhadkan jaaye na thham
kaisi hoti hai
kaisi hoti hai pehli mulaakaat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

madhur milan ki iss bela mein
tan mann jeewan kar de arpan
madhur milan ki iss bela mein
tan mann jeewan kar de arpan
pyaar se saajan ka mann jeete
wahi dulhan hai yahaan suhaagan
o o o o
kiski jeet huyi re kiski maat
sawere hume batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 7

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

A birthday greeting that is now a week ago (plus one more day 😉 ). Many many happy and healthy returns Naseer ji – may we all be blessed with a few more decades of accomplished performances by yourself.

Memories do always seem to connect as if yesterday. Maybe it is the ‘me’ inside me that is never changing in this ever changing world, and so every memory, every remembrance of every person, place, happening, event, vision, hearing a song on the radio, and yes, seeing films in black and white on the TV screens in neighbor’s homes – everything seems to have happened just yesterday.

The film was ‘Manthan’ (1976). And the days were when we would just sit and watch a film on TV for no reason – just that it was a Saturday / Sunday and Doordarshan would be airing a feature. Much later in life I would surprised to find out that some of the films I had watched on TV were actually color films. But then, those black and white images in the memory are more prized and dear now, than the actual color visuals captured later in the day (yesterday, I mean – as I said, everything seems to have happened yesterday).

So, ‘Manthan’ it was. A film that was part of the earliest batch of New-Wave cinema in India. From the first viewing, the memory that I have is, that I do not remember anything about the film or its storyline, its characters, their names, performances etc. Everything that I know about this film is from later viewings. But there are two items that are stuck in the storage from that viewing – one is a visual of a man driving a jeep, a woman trying to follow him on foot, and the song playing – “Mero Gaam Kaathha Paarey”. And the second is a funny mention – a belligerent villager pronouncing the word ‘society’ as ‘sisoti’ (सीसोटी). That is the earliest data byte stored in memory about this exemplary and infinitely versatile performer – Naseeruddin Shah.

Beyond that of course, getting in later teens and going to college, it was trendy and fashionable to go see new wave films – and so a much crowded occupancy of memories related to his films. The list seems to go on and on – ‘Nishant’ (1975), ‘Bhumika’ (1977), ‘Godhuli’ (also 1977), ‘Junoon’ (1978), ‘Sparsh’ (1979), ‘Aakrosh’, ‘Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyon Aata Hai’, ‘Bhavni Bhavai’ (all three in 1980), then ‘Chakra’ and ‘Sazaay e Maut’ (what a solid psychological thriller this one is), both from 1981, ‘Bazaar’ (1982), then a ton of them in 1983 – ‘Katha’, ‘Mandi’, ‘Ardh Satya’ and the peerless cult classic ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’, then ‘Paar’, ‘Mohan Joshi Haazir Ho’ and ‘Khandhar’ in 1984, ‘Mirch Masala’ in 1985, and in 1986, ‘Musafir’, and ‘Genesis’ – the unforgettable film of primeval emotions and human relations, by Mrinal Sen.

On the way, his career merged into the commercial circuit, and, with some of the then current group of parallel cinema performers, he established himself as a performer at home both with ‘sisoti’ and “Oye Oye Aaaa. . . O Tirchhe Nainon Waali” (‘Tirchhi Topi Waale’, 1998). The ease with which he has straddled both the streams is really heartwarming. It simply goes to underline his openness and his versatility. Starting with ‘Hum Paanch’ in 1980, he entered into the mainstream commercial Hindi cinema and has made an enviable position for himself in the industry with creditable performances in films like ‘Umrao Jaan’ (1981), ‘Dil Aakhir Dil Hai’ (1982), ‘Masoom’ and ‘Who Saat Din’, (1983), ‘Ghulami’ and ‘Trikaal’ (1985), ‘Karma’ (1986, in the esteemed company of Dilip Kumar), ‘Ijaazat’ (1987), the fabled ‘Pestonjee’ in 1988, along with ‘Hero Hiralal’ and ‘Maalamaal’. In the 1988 Merchant-Ivory production of the crime thriller ‘The Perfect Murder’, he plays the pivotal role of Inspector Ghote. Then on to ‘Tridev’ in 1989, ‘Police Public’ in 1990. . . and then there are many, too many to be listed here. A sampler of important ones –‘Vishwatma’ (1992), ‘Sir’ (1993), ‘Mohra’ (1994), ‘Himmat’ (1996), ‘Chinagate’ (1998), ‘Sarfarosh’ (1999), ‘Hey Ram’ – the role of Mahatma Gandhi (2000), ‘Monsoon Wedding’ (2001), ‘3 Deewaarein’ and ‘Main Hiin Na’ (2004), ‘Iqbal’ (2005), ‘Omkara’ and ‘Banaras’ along with ‘Yun Hota To Kya Hota’, his debut as a director in (2006), ‘Parzania’ (2007), ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’ in which he plays the role of a portrait on the wall, and ‘Mere Baap Pehle Aap’ in 2008. . . As I said, his notable performances are simply too numerous to be sampled.

Naseer was born in Barabanki (UP) on 20th July, 1949. His parents, Aley Mohammed Shah and Farrukh Sultan, are originally from Meerut. His school education happened at St. Anselm’s in Ajmer and St. Joseph’s College in Nainital. After doing his BA from Aligarh Muslim University, he joined the National School of Drama in Delhi. From there on, the rest is all fairly recent history. His work, on stage and on screen is the story of his life.

On the way, he has earned two National awards for the best actor – ‘Sparsh’ in 1979 and ‘Paar’ in 1984, and one National award for the best supporting actor in ’Iqbal’ (2006). He also has to his credit three Filmfare awards for Best Actor –  ‘Aakrosh’ (1981), ‘Chakra’ (1982) and ‘Masoom’ (1984). He also won the Volpi award for the best actor at the Venice Film Festival in the year 1984 for his performance in ‘Paar’. He has also been honored with the national awards of Padam Shri (1987) and Padam Bhushan (2003).

The song being presented today is a repeat category item with a slight difference. It is a medley of 6 songs, that have been strung together into a wonderful imitiation performance by Naseer. There is a specific similarity in this set of songs. All are rendered by Rafi Sb, and all are Shammi Kapoor songs on screen. The audio segments edited together are all original renditions, with no effort to re-record or improvise.

The choice of Shammi Kapoor songs all – you may ask. Yes, the interesting background to this song does indeed involve Shammi Kapoor as an important figure in the storyline, albeit in absentia.

The film is ‘Sitam’ from 1984. The film is produced by Vikram, and is directed by the husband wife team of Aruna Raje and Vikas Desai. The main cast of actors is Naseeruddin Shah, Smita Patil, Vikram. Asrani, Sulabha Deshpande, Seema Deo, Vikas Desai, Arun Sarnaik, Keith Stevenson amongst others.

Subhash Munkur (role played by Naseeruddin Shah) is a lively, jolly fellow who loves to live the life to its fullest. He is a middle income family person, working in a certain office. He is an avid football player and is the captain of the homegrown team in his company. He is also a very fervent fan of Shammi Kapoor, and imitates his acting and sings his songs. His wife, Meenakshi (role played by Smita Patil) is a home maker, and they have a small son to complete their small dream world.

One day, suddenly, this dream world is mortally shattered. Subhash passes away in a freak inadvertent accident on the football field. Meenakshi is devastated and crushed – she had a very loving relationship with her husband.

This song medley appears in the film a little while after the accident. Meenakshi is alone at home and the memories of Subhash are all around her, and she is traumatized by them. She envisions him still in the home, and singing Shammi Kapoor songs as he used to, to woo her and also to irritate her. Whichever part of the home she goes to, there is a song and a vision attached with it, and she continues to see him singing, in the balcony, in the kitchen, in the bedroom, on the dining table – everyplace in the home. She is not able to hold her grief, and is sobbing and in tears all the time, while this ‘dream of wide open eyes’ is being enacted around her.

So here is a treat of Shammi Kapoor songs, performed quite well by Naseeruddin Shah. Of course the original personality is the big difference, but still, it is a creditable imitation. Once again, this medley is not listed in the EP of the film or in the Geet Kosh and is available only on the film track.

The rest of the story is an interesting premise. Inder (role played by Vikram), the person who inadvertently caused the accident on the football field, is till then unknown to Meenakshi. He locates her and tries to become friendly with her and her son. He is guilt ridden and some how wants to make some amends, he knows not how. But then Meenakshi discovers the truth behind his visits. She further accuses him, berates him and in anger asks him to leave her home. Inder goes back and attempts to commit suicide by slashing his wrists. He is taken to the hospital and saved, but now the guilt factor in his mind has multiplied manifold. He becomes suicidal and a mental patient, and is shifted to the mental ward. The doctors understand his situation that the only remedy for him is to get forgiveness from Meenakshi. And of course, Meenakshi, in her own shattered state of mind, is in no condition or frame of mind to forgive Inder.

This is actually where the film starts. The earlier events are presented as a flashback, and the rest of the film is about how Meenakshi comes to terms with her grief, and ends up forgiving Inder. The film is a very interesting psychological narrative.

Enjoy this replay of six of the famous songs of Shammi Kapoor. I have listened to and viewed this clip so many times now, and every time, it seems to end just too soon. One does not realize that more than three minutes have passed. And the mind actually waits for yet one more song segment.

And the added bonus is the improvised performance by Naseeruddin Shah. Great performer, great actor – I am sure you will agree.

 

Song – Kisi Na Kisi Se Kabhi Na Kabhi (medley)  (Sitam) (1984) Singers – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – [multiple], MD – [multiple]

Lyrics

kisi na kisi se
kabhi na kabhi
kahin na kahin dil lagaana padega. . .

tum ne mujhe
dekha
ho kar
meharbaan
ruk gayi ye zameen
tham gaya aasmaan
jaan e mann
jaan e jaan
tum ne mujhe
dekha. . .

badan pe sitaare lapete huye
o jaan e tamanaa kidhar ja rahi ho
zara paas aao
to chain aa jaaye
zara paas aao
to chain aa jaaye
badan pe sitaare lapete huye
o jaan e tamanaa kidhar ja rahi ho
zara paas aao
to chain aa jaaye
zara paas aao
to chain aa jaaye. . .

kya haseen mod par aa gayi zindgani
ke haqeeqat na ban jaaye meri kahaani
jab aahen bhare ye thandi pawan
seene mein sulag uth’ti hai agan
tujhe dekh ke kehta hai mera mann
kahin aaj kisi se mohabbat na ho jaaye. . .

dil ke jharokhe mein tujh ko bitha kar
yaadon ko teri main dulhan bana kar
rakhunga main dil ke paas
mat ho meri jaan udaas
dil ke jharokhe mein tujh ko bitha kar
yaadon ko teri main dulhan bana kar
rakhunga main dil ke paas
mat ho meri jaan udaas. . .

tum ne kisi ki jaan ko
jaate huye dekha hai
wo dekho mujh se rooth kar
meri jaan ja rahi hai
wo dekho mujh se rooth kar
meri jaan ja rahi hai
tum ne kisi ki jaan ko
jaate huye dekha hai
wo dekho mujh se rooth kar. . .

किसी ना किसी से
कभी ना कभी
कहीं ना कहीं दिल लगाना पड़ेगा॰ ॰ ॰

तुम ने मुझे

रुक गई ये ज़मीन
थम गया आसमान
जान ए मन

बदन पे सितारे लपेटे हुये
ओ जान ए तमन्ना किधर जा रही हो
ज़रा पास आओ

क्या हसीन मोड़ पर आ गई ज़िंदगानी

जब आहें भरे ये ठंडी पवन
सीने में सुलग उठती है अगन
तुझे देख के कहता है मेरा मन
कहीं आज किसी से मोहब्बत ना हो जाये॰ ॰ ॰

दिल के झरोखे में तुझको बिठा कर
यादों को तेरी मैं दुल्हन बना कर

यादों को तेरी मैं दुल्हन बना कर

In the blog, Sudhir Jee sometimes describes me as Ranchiwala Gaanewaala.

I have spent the formative years of my life in Ranchi. But when I think about it now, I find that the last time I visited Ranchi was in 1991 ! So it has been 28 years since I lost touch with Ranchi ! More than a quarter of a century !

I would dearly love to go to Ranchi and relive my memories of that place. It will be an emotional, sentimental and nostalgic visit whenever I go there.

But do I have to actually go there to relive the memories of that place ? Now a days it is possible to try and relive those memories online as well. So, I tried to see if I could relive some of my memories through online technologies.

My father was a railwayman who joined Railways in 1958, before I was born. He was posted in Ranchi. Initially he lived here and there in rented accomodations and finally he got a railway quarter in Ranchi railway colony in 1964. He retained this quarter till 1992. It was vacated after he retired.

So, this small quarter in Ranchi was my base for more than a quarter of a century. Of course, I had left Ranchi in 1983 to pursue Engineering (in Railways itself).

I studied upto class V in one school. It only had classes upto V, so later I was admitted to another school from where I passed my matriculation in 1978. Then I joined college. So these were the three places where I went to study while at Ranchi.

On searching online, I found a few photographs of Ranchi Railway station and I noticed that the main building of Ranchi Railway station was virtually unchanged from what it was in 1970s.

I fired up google earth and zeroed it in to Ranchi Railway station. On zooming it in, I began to see many familiar locations. On North of the Railway station, there was a playground. It was Railway sports ground, now called SERSA (South Eastern Railway Sports Association) stadium. Till 1970s, it was an open field where buffaloes used to roam all around. When I used to commute between my home and school on foot, I would take this route (via the sports ground) while returning. In case some football matches were going on in the evening, I would stop and start watching the football match, postponing my return to home. 🙂

One Railway inter departmental football tournament was held during december 1974 and its final was played on 1 january 1975. There was a good crowd to watch the final, and naturally I too was there. The team that I was supporting (it was the team belonging to my father’s department) played well, but the opposition team, despite being outclassed on the field, managed to emerge winners, much to my disappointment. The teams were awarded by the Chief Guest and his wife. I wondered why he was the chief guest. Much later I came to know that he was the chief guest because he was the boss of Adra Division (Ranchi Railway station was under Adra division). His designation was Division Superintendent. Now this designation is changed to Divisional Railway Manager. The gentleman who was the DS was from the same service to which I would belong more than one decade later. I met that gentleman, named S M Bhargava much later in 1990s when I was posted in Secunderabad and he was settled there after retirement.

On google earth, I could also locate my school where I studied upto matriculation. This school has since been relocated to another far off place and it has been converted as an Ashram. The locals opposed this move, but the school authorities succeeded in converting it into an Ashram. On zooming the place, I could locate my erstwhile school (now an ashram). I could see the place which used to be our playground within the school, where we would play during lunch break.

Likewise, I was able to locate my earlier school and also my college on google earth.

What about locating my quarter ?

I zoomed in to the area south of Railway Station. I got disillusioned and disappointed because the area appeared totally unfamiliar. So what has happened. Has the Railway colony been totally changed and rendered unrecognisable ? I felt despondent and thought that a major part of my younger days has been robbed off.

Then I braced myself, and began to look again. This time I began to look with more concentration and this time I started to recognise places. Then I zeroed in to a place which had to be my quarter which was my base for 28 years. I compared it with other landmark. I became more and more convinced that this is indeed the place. I could recognise the other landmarks as well.

The quarter indicated with hand was my place.
When I looked at adjacent quarters, I recalled the persons who stayed in those quarters. I also located the river (Harmu River) that flowed may be 200 metres from the quarter.

What about my neighbours in the colony ? Can I locate some of them online. Likewise, what about my school mates, college mates ? Is it possible to locate someone.

I realised that locating the neighbours would be a tall order. I knew them mostly by their nicknames, not by their actual names. And in most cases, I was not even aware about thei names.

I decided that my best (and only) bet was to locate Josephs. Mr Joseph lived on the quarter adjacent to our quarter. He was a Railway driver. In one of my nostalgia pieces, I have mentioned that some of my neighbourhood kid used to have the best quality hoop made out of steam locomotive piston rings. I was talking about the Joseph kids.

How do I locate these Joseph Kids ? The one kid in my age group was known to us by his nickname of Chikkoo. But what was his real name ? I wrecked my brain, and remembered that his “school” name was Christopher. So I looked for Christopher Joseph on facebook. I located one, who had mentioned that he lived at Ranchi. I remembered that the Joseph’s had bought plot near the railway colony and had built their home there as Mr Joseph was nearing retirement in early 1990s. So it made sense that Christopher Joseph, the eldest available son would inherit that home after his father and would stay there.

But the facebook page contained little information and not even any DP. But when I looked at his facebook friends, I came across one person called Eugene Joseph. This person had his photograph in his facebook page. This person was unmistakably Eugene Joseph, the younger brother of Christopher Joseph. He was born in february 1966 in their railway quarter and the young neighbourhood kids including me were allowed to see the newborn brother of Chikkoo on that very day. He was named Eugene. Kids had difficulty pronouncing the name and they called him “Engine”. Later their younger brother was born and he was named Ashley. Obviously this name too was difficult to pronounce for kids and he was promptly renamed Asli by the kids. 🙂 The kids were like that. I recall that they had trouble pronouncing a kid called Shakeel and they would call him “cycle”. 🙂

I tried to locate some more neighbourhood kids but drew a blank mainly because I was not aware of their formal names.

What about locating my school mates and college mates by the same method ? I had tried that in the past and I was able to locate a school kid called Shyamal Kumar Dey. We were in the same class in school and later on both of us got admitted to St Xavier’s college, Ranchi in 1978. His facebook page mentioned that he had done Engineering from West Bengal and had then joined a PSU. He was incidentally posted in Ranchi itself which was the HQ of his PSU.

In 2018, when I first located him on facebook, I sent him an email message. He did not respond. Perhaps he could not remember me or may be he did not consider me worthy of responding.

What about someone from college, apart from Shyamal Dey ? I could locate one.

St Xavier’s college, Ranchi admitted only the “brightest” students where brightness was judged by marks obtained in the matriculation examination. The Bihar Board topper among girls, who had achieved fourth rank overall in the state was a resident of Ranchi and she had also joined St Xavier’s college. The students were divided into two sections, viz section A and B. Each section had batches. All girls were in the same batch. Some boys were also in that batch. I was among the boys who were in the batch alongwith girls. Needless to say that boys of other batches envied the boys of this batch. 🙂 Personally I think that most boys of this batch were quite simple and “bhondoo”, Amol Palekar type. 🙂 I do not recall interacting much with any of those girls. Once while doing chemistry practicals, I by fluke had produced a perfect bead while doing borax bead test. The instructor showed this bead to all including the girls telling them that it was created by one among them. 🙂

More than one decade later, I was in Delhi, as part of my probation as a Railway probationer. We were doing parliamentary training, where we would attend a three day seminar on how parliament functions. On one day we were also taken to Parliament to watch how it functioned. We saw Parliament hall from visitor’s gallery and watched the then PM V P Singh replying to some parliamentary question.

The parliamentary training batch had members of two other services in addition to Railways. The participants had their names written in front of them. I found the name of a lady participant matching the name by which we knew her in our college. It was unmistakably the same lady. Her surname differed which was only to be expected because she must have been married by that time.

Next day I mustered enough courage to approach her and talked to her. It turned out that she was indeed the same lady. She informed me that she had married an IAS officer who was then posted as an ADC to the Governor of that state.

That was nearly three decades ago. While searching for my college time mates, I came across the name of this lady once again. I found that considerable information was available on her online. Her husband had reached the top viz had become Principal Secretary of that state. They had two sons and one of them was an IAS officer as well. So this class mate of mine, who was the topper among girls in matriculation examination of Bihar that year was doing very well in her life. I felt happy for her.

I tried to locate some people, but drew a blank. I think that I need to physically go to Ranchi and visit the familiar landmarks, including the place where I stayed and try to find some old acquaintances who may actually be staying in Ranchi even today. That I suppose would be a tall order. Most people may have been staying elsewhere by now.

Ranchi itself has changed considerably, as I have been informed by those who are more current with developments in Ranchi. I was able to locate a few relatives of mine who were settled in Ranchi but they were too young for me to find much in common with them. I tried to locate their parents instead but they were not on facebook. In one of my posts on Binaca Geetmala 1971 finals, I have mentioned my Mama with whom I was going to Ranchi but had an unscheduled night halt in another town. I could locate his children on facebook but not the mama himself. Those kids were not even born by that time. The mama himself was not on facebook.

When I thought of a song to accompany my reminiscences about Ranchi, I was very clear about the movie the song was to be from. The movie had to be “Hip Hip Hurray”(1984). One clear reason is that the story of this movie takes place in Ranchi ! So, it is a perfect movie for my purpose.

“Hip Hip Hurray” (1984) was produced by Manmohan Shetty and Pradeep Uppoor. It was the debut movie of Prakash Jha as a movie director. The movie had Raj Kiran, Deepti Nawal, Deepa Rani, Nikhil Bhagat, Shafi Inamdar etc in it.

I would have saved my effort by quoting the story of this movie from wikipedia or imdb, but the story as contained in these sites are horrible. So I have provided my own summary of the story here:

Sandeep Chaudhary (Raj Kiran), a resident of Mumbai is a computer science and Electronics Engineering graduate as well as a sports enthusiast. After his graduation, he appears for some job interviews, including one interview for a multinational computer company (called IDM 🙂 ). The people taking interview on behalf of the company seem to be totally clueless about computers going by the kind of questions he ask (more seriously, it is a reflection on the dialogue writer’s lack of knowledge of computers. Our venerable Gulzar is the dialogue writer.)
He has a smart and pretty career minded and fast life loving girl friend Uma(Deepa Rani).

While Sandeep Chaudhary is waiting for offer from IDM, which is likely to take three months, his uncle asks him to use this time fruitfully by joining as a sports teacher in a school at Ranchi whose principal is known to him.

So Sandeep Chaudhary boards a train and arrives Ranchi Railway station. He takes a rickshaw and reaches the school. The school Jamnadas school (a fictional school-scenes of this school were shot in Vikas Vidyalaya and Bishop Westcott Boys’ School in Ranchi ) is full of incompetent and careless teachers as well as disinterested, disillusioned and indisciplined students.

School teachers there ask him -” Mr Chaudhary, Bambai ke kis school mein padhaate thhe aap ?”
Sandeep Chaudhary- “jee main engineer hoon. computer science aur electronics mein”.

Hindi teacher- “electric mein hain ? Aap electrician hain. To khel kood mein kahaan se aa gaye?”

Hindi teacher gives his gyan- “Khel kood se is desh ki pragati sambhav hai kya. Ab aap hi bataaiye. Hamaare desh ke jo bhi mahaan neta thhe.
Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Subhash, Guru Nanak, Kabir aur kaun sa footbaal ya hockey khela karte thhe ye log ?”

Sandeep Chaudhary tries to bring discipline in the sports field and is met with resistance by students, led by the rouge student Raghu (Nikhil Bhagat). Raghu, who has failed four years in a row in the same class is a school bully and he has a teenager’s crush on lady teacher Miss Anuradha Roy (Deepti Nawal).

It is clear that the ambitions and temperaments of Sandeep Chaudhary and his fiancee do not match. With Sandeep Chaudhary in Ranchi and not in habit of keeping in touch with his near and dear ones through letters (the usual way of keeping in touch those days), Uma writes to him that there was little point continuing this relation and they should part ways. And she wishes him best of luck for future.

Sandeep Chaudhary decides to build a school team despite resistance from all concerned, viz teachers, students as well as parents. He presses on regardless. The experience of the first football match is disastrous though, because the school team loses 0-12. Sports teacher of the other team (played by Shafi Inamdar) mocks him- “aapko sport teacher kisne bana diya Mr Chaudhary ?”

Sandeep Chaudhary renews his efforts to built a stronger team. He gradually wins over those good players (led by Raghu) who had kept away from playing the earlier match. Gradually, all of them except Raghu join in. Raghu, who thus finds himself isolated does not like it and he retaliates by attacking Sandeep Chaudhary. And he then falsely implicates Sandeep Chaudhary of roughing him up. This lie gets busted because of the evidences provided to the Principal by Miss Anuradha Roy, who herself is a victim of stalking by Raghu. The Principal decides to expel Raghu from school. But Sandeep Chaudhary intervenes and prevents his expulsion. A chastened Raghu grudgingly falls in line and starts practicing with the football team.

The students practice with great motivation, waking up early in the morning and reporting at the sports field for practice. There are murmurs of resistance though. Parents of one Kid prohibits their son from participating in football citing his poor academics as the reason. Sandeep Chaudhary goes and meets them to try and persuade them.

“pichhle saal wo ek baar fail kar chuka hai.”- mother of the boy states.

“lekin, pichhle saal to koi games nahin thha hamaare school mein.”- Sandeep Chaudhary points out.
“toh tum kya kehna chaahte ho. Football khelne se uska maths aur science theek ho jaayega.”- is the sarcastic retort by the father.

“No Sir. Mere kehne ka matlab hai games mein hissa na lene ka matlab zaroori nahin hota hai ki padhaai achchi ho jaati ho. Haan ye zaroor hota hai ki bachche jo school se bhaage rahte hain unka school mein dil lagne lagta hai. Aur phir, rahi baat maths aur science ki main Inder se pehle hi kah chuka hoon main usey tuition khud doonga na.”- Sandeep Chaudhary tells the father.

The father mocks him-“Come on, it is not football. Main physics, chemistry aur chemistry ki baat kar raha hoon.”

“I know sir, Main electronics aur computer science mein graduate hoon.”- Sandeep Chaudhary breaks this information to the stunned parents who look at each other in bemusement.

The rematch takes place with the team that had won the last time by 12-0 margin. This time the enthusiasm is palpable not only among the players and students, but among teachers as well. The match begins, with the opposite team coach Shafi Inamdar as dismissive of his opponents as earlier.

The match begins, and by halftime the team is down 0-2. Will history repeat itself ?

The tide slowly begins to turn in the second half. The team pulls one goal back, and then the second one two. In the dying minutes, Raghu, after a dodging a few defenders as well as the goal keeper puts the ball into the net.

The school secures a memorable and first ever win over their arch rival school. The whole school fraternity is overjoyed.

Sandeep Chaudhary receives a letter which is the job offer from IDM. He is naturally happy, but the happiness is naturally tempered.

Miss Anuradha Roy goes to meet Sandeep Chaudhary. He is still asleep, the attendant opening the door explains.

Miss Roy goes to the bedroom-“Sandeep, pata hai saadhe saat baj rahe hain. Janaab abhi tak bistar mein pade hain. Chalo uthho. Naha dho lo. Thanda lagta hai to paani garm kar deti hoon.” She proceeds to leave the bedroom.

“Anu, idhar aao”- Sandeep Chaudhary beckons him, still lying in bed.

Anu goes to him.
“Mujhse shaadi karogi”- he pops the question.
“nahin”- pat comes the reply, there is absolutely no connection between verbal language and body language.
“badmaash!”-remarks Sandeep Chaudhary so the deal is finalised.

A party is held to celebrate the win. Teachers as well as players are invited. The students wonder if the sports culture that he inclucated in the school was ephemeral. Will the school sports go back to its previous days ? Raghu offers to take up the responsibility of sports in the school and vows to return as a sports teacher to the school after passing out from the school.

The movie ends with Sandeep leaving the school premises for the station.

This movie was the debut movie of Prakash Jha as a director. And this movie is like scoring a century on debut. It is a movie that I have fallen in love with. What is there not to like and love in this movie.

1. The story is set in Ranchi.
2. The characters are totally real life and believable.
3. I was in the right age group as well as temperament to totally identify with the hero.
4. The movie is inspirational.
5. It is a different film. It is a film about sports.

Unlike usual movies, this movie does not have the usual formula based songs- a love song, a separation song, a cabarat etc. My guess is that the director did not want any songs in it but later on compromised and had some songs playing in the background. I find that the first two songs (that I shortlisted to go with this writeup) are both picturised almost in identical manner. It is as if the same picturisation was used for both songs.

I have finally decided to go with the first song. This song is movie opening song. The song plays in the background as Sandeep Chaudhary and his girl friend Uma go around places in Bombay.

The song is sung by Yesudas. Gulzar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vanraj Bhatia.

With this song, “Hip Hip Hurray” (1984) makes its debut in the blog. Though I can hardly sit through movies these days, it is one movie that has the ability to hold my attention. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in watching good well made movies.

Going by the casting, the lady, who plays the fiancee of Raj Kiran is Deepa Rani. She looked quite impressive. I wonder why she failed to have a long innings in movie world.

Another impressive character was Raghu, played by Nikhil Bhagat. He too vanished from movies after this impressive role. 31 years later, he reappeared in “Tamasha”(2015), this time playing the role of Deepika Padukone’s father. Unlike others, Nikhil Bhagat was not enamoured of showbiz so he decided to concentrate on business. He has a business of leather goods. He was persuaded to come back to films by Imtiaz Ali, the director of “Tamasha”(2015) who had watched “Hip Hip Hurrray” (1984) during its time and who was suitably impressed with the movie as well as the actor.

I hope that the lady Deepa Rani too resurfaces some time in future, like Nikhil Bhagat.

Today (19 july 2019) marks eleven years of continued existence for this blog. Over fifteen thousand one hundred songs have been covered in the blog during the 4018 days of existence, which means that the blog has been buzzing with activity, covering songs at the rate of just under four songs daily. We have run up some impressive statistics associated with the songs covered in the blog. But more important that the numbers is the fact that the blog has given rise to a musical bandwagon, and a close knit team of music lovers who have gradually become close friends, online as well as offline.

I have loved this eleven year long journey. I have grown up considerably as a human being thanks to my interaction with so many like minded individuals during this musical journey.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support, encouragement, contributions etc. May this association go on and on.

murjhaati hai
koyi shaam agar to
raat koyi khil jaati hai
main roz subah tak aataa hoon
aur roz shuroo karta hoon safar
haath badhaa ae zindagi
aankh milaa ke baat kar

tere hazaaron chehron mein
ek chehraa hai mujhse miltaa hai
tere hazaaron chehron mein
ek chehraa hai mujhse miltaa hai

aawaaz kaa ang bhi miltaa hai
sach poochho to ham do judwaan hain

Blog Day : 3854 Post No. : 14866

Three days ago (viz on 2 february 2019), I began the blog’s own “ten Year Challenge” where we began to post another song from a movie whose song (another one) was posted on the same day ten years ago. I began this seties with “Sharaabi”(1984), and on the next day (3 february 2019), it was the turn of “Do Dishaayen”(1982).

This “ten Year Challenge” was a non starrer of the next day viz 4 february 2019, because the movies whose songs were covered ten years ago on 4 february 2019 have already been YIPPEED in the blog. Smae is the case for today viz 5 february 2019. Tomorrow givven us some respite because one (just one) of the movies that were covered on 6 february 2009 is still un yippeed. So we can hope to resume this “ten Year Challenge” tomorrow.

In the process of this challenge, our YIPPEE project gets an inadvertent impetus as well. We not only feel glad to see that so many movies, that made their debuts in the blog ten years ago are already YIPPEED. Even the unYIPPEED movies get some renewed attention towards this project.

Take the case of “Sharaabi”(1984) for instance. When I covered the fourth song from this song as part of “ten Year Challenge”, I realised that two songs from the movie were yet to be covered. On futher checking, it turned out that the two songs were multiple version songs. In other words, they could be covered in one writeup.

Here are the details of the songs covered earlier:-

Intaha ho gayi intzaar ki 14863 2-Feb-2019

“Sharaabi”(1984) was produced by Satyendra Pal and directed by Prakash Mehra. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Prada, Om Prakash, Ranjeet, Pran, Satyen Kappu, Deepak Parashar, Smita Patil, Bharat Bhushan, C S Dube, A K Hangal, Dinesh Hingoo, Viju Khote, Mukri, Suresh Oberoi, Sudhir, Mayur, Gurbachan, Asha Lata, Chandrashekhar, Jankidas, Pinchoo Kapoor, Ram Sethi, Rajan Haksar, Sunder etc in it.

This remaining song has a male version sung by Kishore Kumar and a female version sung by Asha Bhonsle. The male version , which also has the voice of chorus is picturised as a street song where Amitabh Bachchan disturbs the sleep of people at night, just to search for Jaya Prada who, he is vaguely aware of being a resident of that locality.

The female version of the song is picturised as a radio/ recording song where Jaya Prada playing a successful singer sings this song whose lyrics and tune are clearly plagiarised from our hero. Our hero and his faithful sidekick Om Prakash watch/ listen while their intellectual property right is thus nonchalantly being violated by the lady.

With this song, all the songs of “Sharaabi”(1984) are now featured in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Blog Day : 3851 Post No. : 14863

Blog ten year challenge (2009-2019)- Song number 1
———————————————

We all have heard of 10 year challenge. In this people post their photos from 2009 as well as 2019 side by side to show how they have aged or how they have not aged.

This ten year challenge can have many variations. One is for Indian cricketers. It is interesting to see how Virat Kohli , Dhoni, and Jadeja looked ten years ago. They were all grown ups at least even if baby faced, but what about Prithvi Shaw. He is just nineteen years old in 2019, and he was just nine years old in 2009 !

There is even twenty year challenge, where one can find photos and videos of celebrities from 1999. I saw a picture of Mitali Raj from 1999 and also one of today.

I also saw a video on youtube where today’s famous cricketers like Tendulkar, Ganguly,, Dravid etc were shown when they were very young.

That video had an interview of Dravid as well. He looked so young those days, but just as unassuming as he is today. The interviewer asked him what he would like to be after his playing days. Dravid said that he would like to be a coach, adding that he had no idea whether he had the credentials for that. Today, twenty years later, as coach of Indian U-19 and A team, one can say that he has been a superb and well respected coach for the new generation of Indian cricketers.

This blog was started in 2008, so we are already a more than ten year old blog. So it is possible for us to have our own ten year blog challenge, where we can post songs from movies whose songs were posted in the blog ten years ago, on the same day.

So, I am starting this ten year blog challenge today on 2 February 2019. When I look back on 2 february 2009, I find that six songs were discussed that day. Songs from “Ek Phool Do Maali” (1969), “Do Dishaayen”(1982), “Barsaat”(1949), “Asli Naqli”(1962), “Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani”(1970) and “Sharaabi”(1984) were covered on that day. Out of these six movies, “Asli Naqli”(1962), “Barsaat”(1949) and “Ek Phool Do Maali” (1969) havev already been YIPPEED. That leaves us three movies whose songs are still remaining to be covered.

I knew even without checking that “Sharaabi”(1984) was not YIPPEED and that it had some superb songs in it. So this movie was an ideal movie to kickstart the ten year blog challenge.

“Sharaabi”(1984), which came exactly twenty years after “Sharaabi”(1964) had songs that have become classics, just as the songs of “Sharaabi”(1964) were already classics by 1984.

“Sharaabi”(1984) was produced by Satyendra Pal and directed by Prakash Mehra. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Prada, Om Prakash, Ranjeet, Pran, Satyen Kappu, Deepak Parashar, Smita Patil, Bharat Bhushan, C S Dube, A K Hangal, Dinesh Hingoo, Viju Khote, Mukri, Suresh Oberoi, Sudhir, Mayur, Gurbachan, Asha Lata, Chandrashekhar, Jankidas, Pinchoo Kapoor, Ram Sethi, Rajan Haksar, Sunder etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Three songs from the movie have been covered in the blog. The first song was covered on this date ten years ago. Other two songs were covered in october 2012.

Here is the fourth song from “Sharaabi”(1984) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Bappi Lahiri is considered one of the major reasons for the demise of the golden era of HFM. But he showed that he also had the ability to produced classy compositions. He created lots of masterpieces with Kishore Kumar that are remembered to this day. In a way, “Sharaabi”(1984) was sort of like a continuation of “Namakhalaal” (1982) because both these movies had more or less same personnel. The music team of the two movies was entirely same.

Anjaan, who is considered a willing comrade in arms of Bappi Lahiri in degrading the quality of HFM, shows here that he could come up with great lyrics if opportunity presented itself. While noting down the lyrics of the song, I came to realise that the lyrics of this song should be considered the foundation of the song on which the magnificent edifice of this song was built by the music director and the singers. In fact, the lyrics of this song DID win the Filmfare best lyrics award.

The song is picturised superbly as can be expected in a movie directed by Prakash Mehra. The movie is a very long song, over eight minutes long. For the first four minutes, it is a missing the beloved song, and after that the song undergoes a change of mood and the beloved appears on the scene and the melancholic mood gives way the a mood of joy and festivity. serene playing of violin gives way to joyous playing of guitar.

The song is picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Jayaprada, with almost the entire starcast in attendance. Going by the picturisation, this song appears to be the last scene of the movie as well, wuith the leading duo procceeding to walk into the proverbial sunset as the song ends and Om Prakash wipes off tears of joys from his eyes.

Our regulars are requested to contribute to this “Ten Year Blog Challenge.” That should make it a great series.
