AR Rehman – The Musician of 21st Century – 3

84th Birthday of Waheeda Rehman on 3rd February 2022

46th Birthday of Abhishek Bachchan on 5th February 2022

The songs of the movie ‘Delhi-6’ are among my favorite music scores by AR Rehman. I rate this qawwaali from the movie, for which I wrote a post back in 2012 as among the best of hindi film songs in this genre.  The links of two songs posted in the blog are given below:

Arziyaan saari main chehre pe likh ke laaya hoon (Delhi 6)
Ye Dilli hai mere yaar (Delhi 6)

 

AR Rehman is also a product of advertising industry, as he started his career is advertising. The one ad I remember is of ‘Garden-Vareili” as composed by AR Rehman. He soon proved his mettle as a talented musician at a very young age working in Tamil and Hindi films, mainly with Mani Rathnam.  Many of his severest critics will agree that, ARR revolutionized the Hindi film music scene in the 90’s and changed the sound of songs completely.  Few of the other musicians have been able to imitate him or his style.  Most of them thought it better to keep to sufiaana or import some songs from other countries like Pakistan or Egypt etc. then try to surpass ARR in creativity.  In many aspects this revolution is even bigger than the reinvention of HFM in 1950 with ‘Barsaat’, by Shankar-Jaikishan.  I am not going towards RDB reinvention, as I have a different opinion about that than the popular conception.

So, Rehman was here, working simultaneously in Mumbai and South, with more focus on southern language films.  This continued till he went truly international and collaborated with other musicians of the west and worked in Hollywood.  Among all these, the Bollywood film work was never his sole focus.  He diversified and did select few films for the Hindi film industry.  The biggies and the not so biggies did go to Chennai to rope him in to give music to their films.  And he has been selective about the projects he takes.  Although he has given 1 or 2 music scores which were not up to the mark, in my opinion.

But overall, his work is critically acclaimed, in all the big banner films like ‘Lagaan’, ‘Guru’, ‘Rang De Basanti’, ‘1947 Earth’, ‘Yuvraaj’ etc. and the Jewel in the crown song of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.  His mini bio is here.

Recently, he has been seen performing live at a special Pavilion dedicated for him and his troupe at DUBAIEXPO2020.  We did go to explore the expo, but ARR was not performing in the first week.  We landed in Dubai the night before the EXPO was to open, so the ‘raunaq’ at Dubai airport was to be seen to be believed.  But that is a subject of another post.

As post no. 3 of the series, I am presenting this song from ‘Delhi-6’, which has folk origins, or ‘traditional’ as the lyrics are credited. Though some sources are crediting Prasoon Joshi as the lyricist.  Unusual song for ARR, but the hall mark of his fusion and composition with vocals, where musical instruments could be used is visible.   And ARR thrives on the unusual, those who have followed his career will agree.

Waheeda Rehman, the graceful dancing star and an actor of repute of last century and a character actor in current century, celebrated her 84th birthday two days ago.  Born in 1938, which makes her just 18 years old when she debuted in Hindi films with ‘CID’ (1956).  I am presently watching that movie (in installments), so can vouch that she does look very young, despite the heavily made up/get up in the film.   Lot of other information about her is available here.

Abhishek Bachchan is celebrating his 46th birthday today.  As is the ‘chalan’ nowadays for celebrities, he must be somewhere exotic to ring in the birthday.

Both Waheeda Rehman and Abhishek Bachchan are featuring in this song, where Waheeda Rehman, Aditi Rao Hydari, Supriya Pathak and others are singing the song on screen, playback by Rekha Bharadwaj.  Sonam Kapoor and Om puri are also seen, who are not taking part in the song, filmed on the terrace of the houses in old Delhi area of Chaandni Chowk.

I think Abhishek Bachchan is an underrated and under utilized actor in the Hindi film scene.  It can’t have been easy to follow in the giant leaps of Amitabh Bachchan and the remarkable footsteps of Jaya Bachchan.

Simple orchestration and simple filming.   This is a folk song, and it mentions the town of Raipur in the stanza.

What could the term “Sasural genda phool” mean ? I think it means, though ‘sasural’ or the ‘In-laws place’ looks like a Marigold, but our attachment is full of fragrance is great and long lasting.  The appearances can be deceptive.

Song-Daata sun le maula sun le (Jail)(2009) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Ajay Kumar Garg, MD-Shamir Tandon

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
raahon se meri kaante chun le
dar pe khade hain sar ko jhukaaye
itni si araj hamaari ee
daata sun le, maula sun le
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le

raat to kaali hai
din bhi andhera hai
raat to kaali hai
din bhi andhera hai
apni palkon ki
tu chhaanv mein rakhna
jeevan ki dori ko tu thhaamke rakhna
haathon mein tere hi
hai duniya hamaari ee
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le

galtiyaan jo hamne ki
wo maaf kar dena
mann mein sachchaayi ka aa
vishwaas bhar dena
raatein gujarti hain
aankhon hi aankhon mein
kuchh phool dhoondhte hain
kaanton se bhari shaakhon mein
saanson ki dharti pe hamri paap ka parbat bhaari ee
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
maula aaa sun le
daata aaa sun le ae
maula aaaa sun le ae ae

A.R. Rehman’s 54th Birthday on 06.01.2021
———————————————————-

Jo pehle din hi se dil ka kaha na kartey ham
To ab yeh logon ki baatien sunaana kartey ham

Agar na haath hmein uss dilrubaa ke dil detey
To dil par haathh sadaa dhar liya na kartey ham

Wo aafat-e-dil-o-jaan pe agar na martey
To apne marney ki duaa har dam duaa kiya na karte ham

Na hosh khotey agar uss pari ki baaton par
To aap hi aap aisi baatien kiya na kartey ham

Na lagti aankh to din raat sotey hi rehtey
Kisi ki chaah na karte to kya na karte ham

Jo ghambuton ka na hotaa teri tarah ‘Momin’
To dekhcharkh` ko hai, hai kh`udaa na kartey ham

– Momin Kh`anMomin –

I heard this above ghazal recital and liked the simplicity of expressions. It was credited to Momin Khan Momin(1800–14 May 1852), so I thought there has to be more to this ghazal. I found a ‘Deewan-e-Momin’ on Rekhta and confirmed that there are few more ash’aarin the complete ghazal. He was a contemporary of Mirza Ghalib.A most famous sha’ir by MomimKh`an Momin is this:

Tum mere paas hotey ho goyaa
Jab koyi dusraa nahin hotaa

It is said that Mirza Ghalib was so impressed by this sha’ir, that he had offerred his whole “Deewan-e-Ghalib” in exchange of this one sha’ir. Of course, in true legend’s style, the exchange did not happen. Even if there was no organised law for protection of intellectual property than, the exchange would have been redundant. Because Ghalib’s work is Ghalib’s and Momin’s kalaam remains Momin’s, after all.

Here is the famous sha’ir by the underrated poet which inspired this song:

Woh jo ham mein tum mein qaraar thha, tumhen yaad ho ke na yaad ho
Wohi, ya’ani wa’adaa nibaah ka,tumhen yaad ho ke nayaad ho

I felt compelled to give some details to emphasis the significance of Momin Kh`an Momin, as there is not much written about him on this blog.

Wikipedia says

“Momin was something of a polymath, with several interests apart from medicine and poetry. He was also competent inmathematics, geomancy, astrology, chess and Hindustani music.” And that his grave is located in Delhi, near the parking lot of Maulana Azad Medical college. What I have learned is that this medical college is India’s top medical college, second only to AIIMS, Delhi, I am yet to come across a doctor who has studied there. So now I am resolving to ask him/her whenever I encounter an alumnus, about the grave of Momin Kh’an Momin.

**********

Now to the real subject of this post, i.e A. R. Rehman. Though I grew up on the average, good, very good, fabulous and fantastic hindi film music of the golden era of hindi film music, A R Rehman still came as a breath of exotic air in 1992 with his debut film ‘Roja’. The translated lyrics from Tamil was a huge drawback of the songs of that film, but the touching melody and the brand new sounds of A R Rehman’s orchestration more than overpowered it. He has come a long way from those days, as has hindi film music. He has travelled through the waves of adulations, via his music school, his acumen in being the first musician to actually own the music he creates, through Sufiana, to fusion, Western classical, via the oscars etc., he is a global celebrity. A big celebrity in a hugely populated country like india is bound to be recognised at global level, that is the power of a big market.

The song I am presenting here is from the film “Jaane tu ya jaane na” (2008), with A R Rehman’s music and lyrics by Abbas Tyrewala. Seven singers are singing this song namely Benny Dayal, Satish Chakravarthy, Sayonara, Philips, Darshana, Svetha, Bhargavi, and Anupama Deshpande.

Only one song Pappu Can’t dance saala (Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na), is so far posted, making this the second song from the film. This is an outdoorsy song filmed on very pristine locations, near the river, where Imran Khan and Genelia D’souza with friends are picnicking, and having fun. The location of shooting is a bit away from the usual Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar, but nearby, with the long road, which goes along Krishna River. This is the other route for travelling to Mahabaleshwar.

This film is produced by A’amir Khan and his cousin Mansoor Khan. The lyricist A’bbas Tyrewala is also the director of the film for launch of A’amir Khan’s nephew, I’mran khan. Quite the family affair this is, so my assessment of locations this song is filmed is bang on target. More so, as I have recently travelled the route, remembered this song and looked up to confirm that the mountains haven’t changed much in 12 years 🙂 :-).

Hullo Atuldom

A few phrases and idioms are coming to my mind as I sit to write this post.

“Chip off the old block” meaning “jaisa baap waisa beta”. I am talking of an actor who is representing Gen”X” of the family of entertainers, following in the footsteps of his father, uncles, grandfather, granduncles, great grandfather and great great grandfather. In fact a few of his cousins are also active in carrying the family flag of entertaining the country with their acting talents. This is one talented clan.

But I will not use the public’s favorite word ‘Nepotism’ here because being a star son will only help you get an entry to the producers’ and production house’s offices. They may be nice to you and offer you a role too but after that it is purely the business that the film generates and how much that the audience loves you that decides which direction your career goes. We can name any number of actors whose careers have fallen by the roadside for want of success.

Coming back to the “chip of the old block” that I started the post with, he started out as an assistant to Sanjay Leela Bhansali when he made “Black” (2005). Sanjay Leela Bhansali also gave him his debut film “Saawariya” in 2007 for which the music director was Monty Sharma, another person trying his hand at carrying the family flag- he is Pyarelal Sharma’s nephew.

We are here wishing Ranbir Kapoor on his 38th birthday. He is as versatile as any other of his family in emoting, comedy, dance and every aspect of acting. He has had a fair bit of successful movies and he was simply amazing in the comic climax at the villain’s den in the movie “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Dastaan”. He was able to stay in step with Madhuri in the “ghagra” song. He is the recipient of awards for various categories. He was fortunate to have worked with his parents in “Besharam” and also his granduncle in “Rockstar”.

I am a little confused as to which will be an appropriate song to go with this post, because the songs in his movies had good lyrics, choreography and were all eye-pleasing. I am going to settle for a song from “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani” which has lyrics by Irshad Kamil and music by Pritam Chakraborty. The movie was a remake of a 2005 Telugu hit and got Ranbir a critics award of best actor. Rajkumar Santoshi was the director and Katrina Kaif, Upen Patel, Darshan Jariwal, Smita Jaykar, Govind Namdeo and Zakir Hussain as the don who has a gang that cannot do anything right. Ranbir and Katrina played characters that have a speech problem every time they get emotional.

I find the names of singers who are new to me – Naresh, Atif Aslam, Soham Chakraborty, Kailash Kher (this one I have heard for some time now) and Ashish Pandit. This is an all-male song.

Lyrics

kaise bataayen
kyun tujhko chaahe
yaraa bata na paaye
baatein dilon ki
dekho zubaani
aankhen tujhe samjhaayen
tu jaane naa aa aa
tu jaane naa
tu jaane naa aa aa
tu jaane naa

milke bhi hum na mile
tumse na jaane kyun
milon ke hai faasle
tumse na jaane kyun
anjaane hain silsile
tumse na jaane kyun
sapne hain palkon tale
tumse na jaane kyun oon oon
kaise bataayen
kyun tujhko chaahen
yaraa bata naa paayen (aaaaa)
baatein dilon ki (aaaa)
dekho zubaani
aankhen tujhe samjhaaye
tu jaane na aa aa(aaaaa)
tu jaane na (aaaa)
tu jaane na aa aa (aaaaa)
tu jaane na (aaaa)

nigaahon mein dekho meri jo hai bas gaya
wo hai milta tumse hu bahu
ho o o
jaane teri aankhen thi ya baatein thi wajah
huye tum jo dil ki aarzoo
tum paas hoke bhi
tum aas hoke bhi ee
ehsaas hoke bhi apne nahim
aise hain hamko gile
tumse na jaane kyun
meelon ke hai faasle
tumse na jaane kyun oon oon
tu jaane na aa aa
tu jaane na
tu jaane na aa aa
tu jaane na
o jaane na jaane na jaane na aa
haan aan
tu jaane na

khyaalon mein laakhon baatein yoon toh keh gaya aa
bola kuchh na tere saamne
o o o
huye na begaane bhi tum hoke aur ke ae
dekho tum na mere hi bane
afsos hota hai
dil bhi ye rota hai ae
sapne sanjota hai
pagla hua soche ye
hum thhe mile
tumse na jaane kyun
meelon ke hain faasle
tum se na jaane kyun
anjaane hain silsile
tumse na jaane kyun
sapne hain palkon tale
tumse na jaane kyun oon oon
kaise bataayen
kyu tujhko chaahen
yaraa bata na paayen
baatein dilon ki
dekho zubaan ki
aankhen tujhe samjhaayen
tu jaane na aa aa
tu jaane na,
tu jaane na aa aa
tu jaane na
tu jaane na aa aa
tu jaane na,
tu jaane na aa aa
tu jaane na
tu jaane na aa aa
tu jaane na

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 9
——————————————————————–

I am an Atulite and I am proud of it. It is an honor to be associated with a blog that drips pure love of music. Like almost all Indians I love Hindi film music. But I cannot claim to be knowledgeable about it. I do know many songs but that is not a qualification. There are thousands of songs out there, many of which have fallen into oblivion. It is the die-hard music lovers that keep track of these songs and chase them with an assiduity that would make Sherlock Holmes feel jealous.

I am amazed when some of my friends are able to name the movie, singer, lyricist and music director as soon as the song is mentioned. Some Atulites could also tell you charming little stories behind the making of each song. Delving here, I have discovered gorgeous songs that not much known but are as precious as Koh-i-Noor.

When I was pointed into the right direction, i.e. JK Rowling and Harry Potter, then the mystery dissolved away, and the nickname ‘Peevesie’ came out in a better light. And after spending maybe an hour with her, the significance of the nickname also eased itself into my mind. In the Harry Potter series, Peeves is a poltergeist at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, since c. 993. Fond of mischief and chaos, he is known as the spirit of chaos around the school. And so, picking up from her favorite series of teenage adventures, the daughter of Peevesie’s Mom selected this nickname for herself. Hmmm. . . is it that the daughter of Peevesie’s Mom selected this nickname for herself and was then known as Peevesie, or is it that she picked this nickname and then her mom came to be known as Peevesie’s Mom – it is getting a little mixed up in the order in which the things may have happened.

I am not a great travelogue writer, though my husband is always after me to write something about the various trips we undertake. But this time I am going to try my hand at describing a trip I went for in the first few days of May. To accomplish that I have decided to take a break from my list of romantic songs (in my march onto 10000) and write about a lovely encounter with a known unknown person who is a friend for the last 5- 6 years without ever having met.

About a month back, I, my wife and four of my close relatives visited Leh-Ladakh on a two week’s trip. Rather than a relaxed holiday, the trip was an experience in itself. A flight from Delhi for Leh meant that there would be an altitude gain from 292 metres in Delhi to 3550 metres in Leh in about one hour time. It was the best option from the point of view of acclimatisation at a higher altitude. So we had to confine ourselves to our hotel rooms in Leh for 24 hours without doing much of an exertion as part of acclimatisation processes for getting used to the lesser oxygen at higher altitude. Furthermore, during our trip, we were to cross three very high altitude mountain passes – Khardung La, the world’s highest motorable road (5600 metre or 18380 feet above sea level) for visiting Nubra Valley, Chang La, the world’s third highest motorable road (5360 metres or 17585 feet) for visiting Pangong Lake and Fotu La ( 4100m or 13480 feet) for going to Kargil. Fortunately, we did not face much of a problem except some mild altitude sickness experienced by two of my relatives which got resolved quickly as we descended.

daraaren daraaren hain maathhe pe maula
marammat muqaddar ki kar do maula

These lines written by Prasoon joshi for this qawwali in the film Delhi – 6 have a fascination, that in indescribable. But still let me try.
