If one asks Hindi movie people things like what is your favourite festival,favourite season etc, what would be their reply ? whichever festival and whichever season gives us song opportunities, would be the reply.

Little wonder then that Holi is the favourite festival of Hindi movies and rain is the favourite season.

But when we watch the Holi festival songs or rain songs in Hindi movies, we find that these songs are mostly “filmy”, viz unrealistic and sanitised. Reel life picturisation bears little resemblance to how things are in real life.

When it comes to rain songs, we find the hero and heroines singing merrily in rain, without a care in the world. For instance, we have Amitabh Bachchan and Mausami Chatterji singing in Mumbai rains and enjoying it. In real life, people would take shelter in nearby buildings and they would be very concerned about their wet clothes. In our childhood, our moms admonished us that we would catch cold if we get wet in rains. Clearly Amitabh Bachchan and Mausami Chatterji’s parents had not told them about the ill effects of getting wet in rains.

And that is not all. Mumbai rains are not as romantic as this song makes out to be. It is a nightmare in reality, as any Mumbaikar knows. Roads turn into four feet deep rivers and it is unsafe to cross them, as there is the risk of gutters being open. Sadashiv Amrapurkar’s brother ( who was a famous doctor of Mumbai) lost his life after falling in one such gutter a few years ago.

In reality, rains in Mumbai throws public life in disarray. Road vehicles, as well as trains, including local trains get affected. Even flights get affected.

But I have found that electricity is surprisingly intact in Mumbai despite torrential rains. Trains, in case they run, runs merrily over submerged tracks which is an amazing feat, seeeing that many electrical motors involved in Railway operations get submerged. People who get stranded and have to stay back in their offices or in the homes of their friends/ relatives have access to electricity which ebables them to share their rainy season selfies with this whatsapp friends. 🙂 It is during such calamities that Apple phone users realise that they shpuld either carry their chargers with themselves or they should have friends/ relatives who are also Apple users like them. 🙂

If you are a resident of any place other than Mumbai, then the first casuality of rains in electricity. First rain of the season, and one finds electicity vanishing for hours. When I was in Izatnagar, Bareilly, first rain of the season invariably led to electricity getting tripped as trees would fall on electrical wires (we were told) and electricity would get restored only after some 24 hours or so.

I always wonder how electricity department persons had their electrical wires passing in the vicinity of trees who would then get uprooted even if the rain was nothing but passing showers.

In Bareilly, I had another worry. I wondered if electricity had gone off in every household or is it only in my household. I was confused because the household located nearby would be fully illuminated throughout night even if other households had no electicity. Railway electical people knew their job. They would make sure that their top boss had uninterrupted electricity supply come what may and they could keep the other residents in the dark. So if other households have light and my household does not , then I worried that the wires coming to my house may have got disconnected somewhere due to wind. And that often turned out to be the case.

And what about the case when roop started leaking after heavy rain ! The persons who were supposed to look after such repairs would come long after rain had subsided and the water from roof had drained away. Then, like Indian police in Hindi movies who appeared long after the crime was committed and clues obliterated, they would ask- where is the leakage. I cannot sdee any leakage.

We are living in modern era of mobile phones and dish TVs. If one has back up electricity (through inverter) When it rains, you get message on your TV screen- “Your set top box is not getting signals. Please check the weather to see if it cloudy.” Just imagine the situation when world cup is going on and India your favourite team, has an important cricket man on TV. That is the situation today (6 july 2019). So imagine my situation when I found electricity gone at 3 :30 AM in the early morning and not coming back for four hours. One starts worrying how one would be able to watch the match. Inverter cannot last till then unless electricity comes back and recharges the inverter battery. Moreover, inverter can only run TV, tubelights and fans. What about fridge, geiser, AC etc. The stuff kept inside fridge would get spoiled if the black out gets prolonged.

If blackout gets prolonged, then even water supply may get affected after some time because water supply depends on working of electric driven pump motors.

I can safely state that Hindi movie rain songs do not touch upon the above mentioned major aftereffects of rain. Hindi movies touch the after effects of rains only superficially. As far as Hindi movies are concerned, rains means clothes of actors getting soaked and the actors enjoying it, that is all.

If one thinks that new rain songs of Hindi movies, that have come up after 1980s keep up with changing times and touch upon the inconveniences brought about by rains, one can only be disappointed. With time, the rain songs have undergone changes, but they are not necessarily changes for the better.

I came across an “interesting” Hindi movie rain song. The special feature of this song is that it has Hinglish lyrics in it. In the golden era, we used to have Hindi / Urdu/ Sanskrit lyrics such as “Abke saawan mein jee jale”, “rimjhim ke taraane leke aayi barsaat”, “barkha raani zara jam ke barso” etc. Even post golden era had songs like “baadal yoon garajta hai”, “tip tip barsa paani” etc. But the lyrics of this song under discussion takes the case. The wording of the song is “rain is falling chhamaa chham chham”. It is so bad that it is good. 🙂

Most rain songs in Hindi movies are picturised on lead pair and they are their personal intimate affairs. But this song is like a community affair. In fact, the movie makers have taken short cuts and cheated on the movie goers. The movie makers have taken “dahi haandi” festival and “Ganpati Festival” situations and tried to pass dance steps and situations of these festivals as a rain song.

If you wondered how badly and cheaply someone called Atul can dance, here is one such spectacle for you to witness. This song is picturised on Atul Agnihotri, Pooja Bhatt and others as a supposedly rain song. Get actors wet in rain, and there is your rain song- that appears to be the philosophy of the movie maker. The same short cut philosophy was followed for creating songs of other genre as well. For creating muslim devotional song, lyrics of such a song would include words like “Maula”, “Allah”, “Sajda” etc and the devotional song was ready.

Coming to the same under question, it is sung by Sudesh Bhonsle, and chorus. Surendra Sathi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shyam Surinder.

Name of the movie ? “Gunehgaar” (1995). It is good to see the movie maker pleading guilty in the title itself. 🙂

The movie was produced by Maan Singh Deep and Kalyani Singh and directed by Vikram Bhatt. The movie had Mithun Chakraborty, Atul Agnihotri, Pooja Bhatt, Tisca Chopra, Kiran Kumar, Ishrat Ali, Baby Ghazala, Mushtaq Khan, Anil Nagrath, Vishwajeet Pradhan, Ram Sethi, Girja Shankar, Mahavir Shah, Naresh Suri etc in it.

Here is this “rain” song from “Gunehgaar”(1995). With this song, the movie makes its debut in the blog. The lyricist and music directors also make their debuts in the blog with this song.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Wishing A.R. Rahman a very Happy Birthday!!! He turns 51 today. This music director started his life at a young age of 11 when he played in the orchestra of composers of the stature of Illyaraja, M. S. Viswanathan, M.K. Arjunan (of the Malayalam industry) etc. He has accompanied Zakir Hussain (Hindustani music), Kunnaikudi Vaidyanathan (Carnatic music) etc. on world tours. He is a trained Key- board player along with mastering the piano, synthesizer, harmonium and guitar but is a self-confessed fan of the synthesizer as he feels it is an ideal combination of music and technology. He is known to combine western classical music and carnatic music with folk, reggae, jazz rock etc which gives hours of listening pleasure.

His debut in movies came after his stint as a jingle composer for ads. His first movie was Mani Ratnam’s “Roja” (1992) which got him that year’s national award. His Bollywood debut came in 1995 with Ram Gopal Varma’s “Rangeela” though he was already famous in the Hindi-speaking regions of India through the dubbed versions of his South-Indian films.

Today on his birthday we will have a song from his Hindi debut film “Rangeela”. This movie is the story of a young girl (Urmila Matondkar) who is a chorus dancer in the movies with a passion for filmy dances. She has a childhood friend (Amir Khan) who sells movie tickets outside cinema halls in black. There is also Jackie Shroff who plays a matinee idol who spots this chorus dancer as she practices in the early morning hours on the beach side. He promotes her in the industry and she becomes a star but when it comes to love and marriage, she goes back to her childhood friend. So that then was the story of Rangeela in short.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Aditya Narayan and Mehboob was the lyricist. The song is Urmila’s dream sequence where she is seen dancing through the streets of Navi Mumbai and the local train station in that area of Mumbai. This movie got A.R. Rahman two of his fifteen (Hindi) Filmfare awards – Best Music and R D Burman award for best new talent. {He has sixteen Filmfare awards for his South Indian films}. The movie gave Urmila Matondkar and her designer Manish Malhotra instant recognition in the movies. The film marked the return of Asha Bhonsle with two songs, she had long retired from accepting playback singer awards like her sister. She received a Filmfare special award for the other song – Tanha tanha yahaan pe jeena”.


Song-Yaai re yaai re zor laga ke naache re (Rangeela)(1995) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Aditya Narayan, Lyrics-Mehboob Kotwal MD-A R Rahman

Lyrics

yaai re
yaai re
zor laga ke naache re
yaai re
yaai re
mil ke dhoom machaaye re
chal mere sang sang
le le duniya ke rang
ho ja rangeela re
rang rang rangeela re
yaai re
yaai re
zor laga ke naache re
yaai re
yaai re
mil ke dhoom machaaye re
chal mere sang sang
le le duniya ke rang
ho ja rangeela re
rang rang rangeela re

itne chehron mein apne chehre ki pehchaan toh ho
pehchaan toh ho
bade bade naamon mein apna bhi naam o nishan toh ho
pehchan toh ho
jeene mein phir toh kya baat ho o
din naya aur nayi raat ho o
har ghadi bas khushi saath ho o o
yaai re
yaai re
zor laga ke naache re
yaai re
yaai re
mil ke dhoom machaaye re
chal mere sang sang
le le duniya ke rang
ho ja rangeela re (rangeela re)
rang rang rangeela re (rangeela re)

arrey
yaaron mere paas toh aao
meri mushqil door bhagaao
cadbury bole main meetha hoon
amul bole main meetha hoon
horlicks bole main achchha hoon
complan bole main achchha hoon
kya sabne socha main bachcha hoon
chocolate khane me tension hai
doodh peene mein tension hai
tension tension tension

laanat hai ji us par
duniya mein hi rehkar
duniya me jo jeene ke andaaz ko naa jane
maathe ya haathon pe
chaand ya taaron mein
kismat ko dhoondhe par khud mein kya hai ye naa jaane
khudpe hi hamko yakeen ho,
mushkilen raah ki aasaan ho
donon haathon mein ye jahaan ho o
yaai re
yaai re
zor laga ke naache re
yaai re
yaai re
mil ke dhoom machaaye re
chal mere sang sang
le le duniya ke rang
ho ja rangeela re
rangeela re ae
rang rang rangeela re
rangeela re
