Most Indians are well aware about Subhash Chandra Bose, who was easily one of the most charismatic and inspirational figures among the Indian freedom fighting leaders of pre independence era.

Hindi movies too have been impressed enough with him and there have been quite a few movies featuring him,viz. “Netaji Subhash”(1947), “Samaadhi”(1950), “Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose”(1966), “Subhash Chandra”(1978) etc.

The latest movie on Netaji has been “Bose-The Forgotten hero”(2004).

Lyrics of a song from this movie were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala to be posted today (23 january 2018) on the occasion of the 121st birth anniversary of Netaji.

That got me interested in watching the movie. I have not watched it fully yet, because the story is too well known and moreover I cannot bear to watch the part when the British realise that Subhash Chandra has escaped. I know that all that happened 77 years ago and what I am watching is just a movie but even today I dread thinking about the treatment meted out by the British to Subhash Chandra Bose’s family members to find his whereabouts. There was nothing Gandhian about how policemen interrogated Subhash Chandra Bose’s relatives.

Fortunately, the song under discussion happens before that. And it involves that part of the movie that appeals me the most. That part has to do with Subhash Chandra Bose’s escape from Calcutta to Gomoh by road and from there he catches a train to Peshawar at midnight.

Subhash Chandra Bose was capable of great meticulousness in making his plans and executing them. And this escape was a shining example of that.

Subhash Chandra Bose was kept in Fort William Jail, Calcutta in december 1940. There he staged a fast unto death strike. Unnerved, the British rulers released him and kept him under house arrest in his residence at 38/2 Elgin Road, Calcutta.

While at his residence, Subhash Chandra Bose pulled off a meticulously planned escape from right under the noses of securitymen.

Subhash Chandra Bose made it known to the world (including Britishers) that he was contemplating sanyas. He retreated into a room in the residence where no one was allowed to see him. His meal would be shoved under the door of the room once a day in a thaali and that thaali would be pushed back after consuming the foodstuff.

Subhash Chandra Bose’s extended family had another residence at 1, Woodburn park. where Subhash’s elder brother Sarat Chandra Bose used to live with his family. Subhash picked Sisir Chandra Bose, the son of Sarat Chandra Bose, for his plan.

The Bose family had several cars, viz Studebaker, Opel, Wanderer W24 etc. Subhash Chandra Bose chose Wanderer 24 W for the purpose.

Prima facie, Wanderer was a noisy car rather than a soundless car as befitting a getaway car But it had advantages over the other cars posssessed by the family. Cars those days did not have efficient cooling arrangements for engine and the radiator was required to be re-filled with water and the car was required to be stopped for cooling while on long distance drive. Wanderer had an advanced cooling system and this car did not suffer from that engine overheating problem during long drives.

Sisir Kumar Das, then a medical student (he went on to become a renowned paediatrician) was made to go on a trial run on 25 december 1940 upto Burdwan ( a distance of 100 km) on this car to check if the car as well as he himself were ready to undertake the long journey.

Every day for several days Sisir would drive to Subhas’s house late at night in his car. When policemen stopped him, he would tell them, “My uncle wants to listen to the radio broadcast about the Second World War. He is too ill to tune the radio himself. So, he depends on me to do it for him. The guards would let him pass. He would leave after midnight. So this routine of leaving in that car after midnight was set up several days in advance.

Bose slipped out of his Calcutta residence after midnight on 1:30 AM on 17 january 1941 on this car, with Sisir Kumar Bose driving as usual and the securitymen did not notice anything unusual.

Sisir Bose drove through the night. He was constantly being seved coffee by his uncle who was seated on the left rear side and was carrying a thermos containing coffee. The car arrived Barari near Dhanbad (270 KM), where Ashok Nath Bose, the elder brother of Sisir Bose was posted with “Barari Coke Works” (Now Bharat Central Coalfields Limited) as a chemical Engineer and stayed with his newly married wife Mira. Subhash Chandra Bose, posing as Ziauddin, spent the whole day of 17 January 1941 there. He was supposed to catch 63 UP Howrah-Peshawar train at Asansol, but Ashoknath advised his uncle to board the train at Gomoh. Asansol was an important station and the train arrived there well before midnight so chances of being noticed there were high. Gomoh on the other hand was a smaller station and the train arrived there after midnight, so there would be very few people there and chances of being noticed was low.

Subhash Agreed to this change of plan. Sisir was not famiiar with the road from Barari to Gomoh (50 KM) so Ashoknath and his wife Meera, seated in the rear of the car accompanied Sisir (at the wheel) and Subhash (at the passenger seat) upto Gomoh.

They reached Gomoh railway station at midnight. Subhash asked the others to go back instead of seeing him off at the platform. Sisir insisted on accompanying him to the platform, to see his uncle off. He went to the station, bought the ticket from Gomoh to Peshawar and boarded the train which arrived Gomoh after midnight. Some policemen, rubbing tobacco on their palms were around, while the most sought after revolutionary (though he was not yet known to have escaped) quietly slipped away into the unknown from right under their noses.

Later he reached Peshawar and from there futher plans to escape out of India were chalked out.

The movie does not have scope for many songs, but the song that plays in the background while Subhash’s train runs through the breadth of the nation, hauled by a steam locomotive, is quite evocative and moving. The same song is again played when he is seen going towards the western border of India into Afghanistan.

The song keeps playng in the background at moments like this in parts. The longer and full song is available only in the audio version.

Here is this inspirational and moving song from an inspirational figure from our recent history. The song is sung by Sonu Nigam (hindi part) and Nachiketa Chakraborty (Bangla part), with some chorus singing as well. Jawed Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by A R Rahman.

Amitabh – The Later Decades – 2
—————————————————–

I am sure everyone remembers Dr. Bhaskar Bannerji.  A very young rookie doctor, who is very troubled with the state of health affairs in general.  An introvert and reserved person, living a very sedate life.  The story is ‘Anand’ and the actor behind the Babu Moshai character captured the attention and the imagination of the audiences and critics alike.  He was new, and struggling and still to land a lead role for himself.  That was 1970.

Chaandni Raaten – Song No. 9
——————————-

This song is simply my most favourite ‘chaand’ song of the 21st century. The last two decades had a few such music scores in Hindi films, ‘ Khaamoshi ‘ and ‘Parineeta’ are among them which made the decades bearable musically. Favourite ‘chaand’ song from the 90’s is here. Melody in film songs was still trying to keep its head above the general cacophony which passed for music and entertainment.

‘Parineeta’ (2005) is one of the aesthetically better movies of the last decade. I had seen this movie on cable TV, but had liked the movie and songs a lot. The movie, cinematography and the understated treatment of the adapted story from Saratchandra Chatterjee’s classic literary piece, were impressive. It is a glamorously packaged product with the subtle nuances. It is directed by Pradeep Sarkar and had Saif Ali Khan and Vidya Balan playing the lead roles, with supporting cast of Sanjay Dutt, Dia Mirza, Raima Sen etc. Its crisp editing is also a feature that I had noted back than, while watching the film.

Though I can talk a lot on old Hindi movies and music, I am quite out of my depth if I am asked to discuss the current Hindi movies and their music. Most of them are not worth discussing in any case, I am told, but some to them have the ability to catch even my attention.
