Hullo to all Atulites

Today’s birthday girl was a Miss India winner in the year when my family got a TV for the first time ever. Prior to that whatever I have seen on TV (read Doordarshan) was either in other people’s houses or my chachu’s home. (As I have previously mentioned on many occasions. Those days nobody minded other people’s kids or adults too for that matter, coming in to see TV) I remember having got used to seeing the live relay of the Republic day parades, Filmfare Awards Nites, test matches, Wimbledon and opening ceremonies of Olympics or Asiad etc. They had a different charm to them specially when there would be no repeat telecasts and we used to either wake up early or sit up late to see live relays of overseas events.

One such live event which I tried never to miss was the Femina Miss India Contest. I have seen it almost every year till 1995 (then they became too commercial as so many other things in our lives.) So in the year 1984 we had this very cutely pretty (if there is such an expression) Juhi Chawla winning the Miss India crown. Then when she went to represent India at the Miss Universe contest I made it a point to sit through that too. Here she had worn a very lovely Ghaghara Choli and that got her the best costume award, it made her look so Indian that any Indian would have been proud to carry that look. In the final listing she was placed number five, even that was not a small achievement I am sure. But that gave her the ticket to a career in front of the camera. She has been a model & went on to become one of Hindi film industry’s reigning goddesses. I saw a little of two of her last releases and I was so happy that she has not been relegated to mother or aunt roles but has been getting strong female characters. “Gulab Gang” (2014) has her playing a conniving and shrewd politician, Sumitra Bagrecha, who uses people. Then came “Chalk n Duster” where she played a teacher who takes a stand against the commercialization of the Indian private education system. If she had Madhuri Dixit as her co actor in Gulab Gang she had Shabana Azmi with her in Chalk ‘n’ Duster. And in both movies it was difficult to judge who was better than whom. She has been a producer in partnership with Shahrukh Khan and Aziz Mirza. She is also the co-owner of the Kolkata cricket team in the IPL. What varied interests indeed. Her only regret was that she discontinued her dancing lessons after just three years but has been training in classical music for some time now.

Since I mentioned that Juhi Chawla had won the Best Costume at the Miss Universe I thought we will also have her in a song where she is donning a Ghaghara Choli and looking lovely/ pretty. The song is from the 1993-Mahesh Bhatt directed-Tahir Hussain produced- “Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke”. This movie had her play Vyjayanti Iyer who runs away from home and a marriage to a person she can’t stand. She takes refuge in Amir Khan’s home (initially without his knowledge), who has a bunch of kids to take care of. She becomes the go-between for the kids and their mama, falls in love with the mama and day dreams today’s song. It is sung by Alka Yagnik and Kumar Shanu. The song got Alka Yagnik a National Award for best singer and the movie got Juhi her Best Actress Filmfare Award. The song also fetched Sameer the best lyricist Filmfare Award. Nadeem-Shravan were the music directors.

Still liking your performances; Happy Birthday to you Juhi Chawla.


Song-Ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka (Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke)(1993) Singers-Alka Yagnik, Kumar Sanu, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Nadeem Shrawan

Lyrics

ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar kaaa
deedaar adhooraaa rehta hai
ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar kaaa
deedaar adhooraaa rehta hai
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
singaar adhoora rehta hai
ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka

ghoonghat ki aadh se dilbar ka
deedaar adhoora rehta hai
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
ikraar adhoora rehta hai
ghunghat ki aad se dilbar ka

dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka

gore mukhde se ghunghta hataane de
ghadi apne milan ki toh aane de
mere dil pe nahin mera kaabu hai
kuch nahi yeh toh chaahat ka jaadoo hai
badhti hi jaati hai sanam
pyar ki yeh bekhudi ho

do premiyon ke na milne se ae
sansaar adhooraa rehta hai
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
singaar adhoora rehta hai
ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka

baagh mein gul ka khilna zaroori hai
haan mohabbat mein milna zaroori hai
paas aane ka achchha bahaana hai
kya karoon main ke mausam deewaana hai
dil mera dhadkaane lagi
abb toh yeh dewaangi ho
bina kisi yaar ke jaane jaan aa
yeh pyaar adhooraa rehta hai
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
ikraar adhoora rehta hai

ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
o dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Wishing all a very Happy 70th INDEPENDENCE DAY. We step into our 71st year of Independence.

As children, we have been inculcated with a sense of patriotism. My school had a practice of hoisting the National Flag at a particular hour. Later in my life I was given to understand that this practise is governed by the hour the flag is hoisted in the nation’s capital Delhi- it seems that the flag has to be hoisted first in Delhi at the Red Fort and then the nation follows. I would love to know if what I learnt is right or wrong.

Readers of this blog might now be familiar with a certain pattern of posts on this blog.

While there are posts which focus largely on the song, or the film, or even personal anecdotes, one common pattern is the celebration of anniversaries and milestones, in a post.

The anniversaries are our way of paying tribute to the artiste concerned. Whoever the artiste, whether a composer or lyricist or actor, whatever his level of fame in the industry, we try to remember and honour him on his birth or death anniversary.

Today’s song for discussion is from a film which is actually…according to some people…”out of Syllabus” for me. The film is Andaz Apna Apna – 1994 and the lovely duet is sung by Vicky Mehta and Behroze Chatterjee.

Regulars of this blog meeting with one another on a one to one basis has been going on from 2010 onwards. It first happened in Nagpur, when Raja ( my long time online acquintance since 2004) decided to pay a visit to Nagpur to meet me as well as another Nagpur based fellow cricket and HFM enthusiast. Friday, 29 october 2010 became the first occasion when I met a blog contributor and it was Raja, who also happened to be the first visitor, first commentor, first guest contributor etc etc of the blog. This meeting that lasted some three hours was a memorable occasion for me. I had mentioned this meeting in a writeup that I posted the next day.

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.

Our parents are our first friends. They were the first ones who understood that we are hungry or upset or just bored without our even speaking (of course we would cry very very loudly at all those points but still). But before we came in and wreaked havoc in their lives, the best families are the ones where they were each other’s best friends.

Hi All

Today is a special day in the life of Mr. perfect Khan…. I mean Amir Khan. He turns a year older. It was exactly 25 years ago that he burst into filmdom with the song which I intend to discuss today. Come to think of it the other 2 Khans – Shahrukh and Salman– also complete 25 years in Bollywood.

The purists among music lovers often like to keep a cut-off for their listening habits. ‘I don’t listen to songs later than this year,’ they often say. I don’t disagree with those cut-offs. There are times when we just don’t want to listen to the cacophony that our music often descends to. But then, like a proverbial ‘keechad me kamal’ a beautiful song pops up among all this noise. The sufiana songs from the present times are meaningful and pleasing to the ear. The songs written by Gulzar and Javed Akhtar, set to tunes by AR Rahman are beautiful and worth listening to again and again.
