Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is a Peevesie discovery. I don’t remember when exactly, but definitely a few years back she mentioned about this song to me. And it looks like she has seen and enjoyed the video too and it has stayed in her memory. She remembered exactly how the song starts. And the dance steps of Govinda and Madhuri. Awesome combination. Just like in the previous Madhuri Dixit song where with Prabhu Deva as her co-dancer, here too, she is excellent. She is in a different orbit when she has a dancer for a co-actor. In “Que sarasara” she matched Prabhu Deva step for step, here it is a typically Govinda dance that is a treat.

So what, if the lyrics are non-sensical. The song is set as a fun-song, going by the video I have a feeling that Madhuri has accidentally eaten or drunk something intoxicating and Govinda is trying his best to control her in the given circumstances.

A few days back I had sent a song from ‘Disco Dancer’ to Atulji and then I had made up my mind to follow it with another Mithun song which features a ‘mithai‘. There were other songs from the 70s which were running through my mind for this particular post which is for a very special occasion. Songs which showed the male running the household while the female is away at work. But on reviewing those songs I felt that the song which Peevesie suggested is better. Why? Well for one today is a party occasion and “mithai toh banti hai” – it is our Ranchiwaale Gaanewala’s birthday (now its about time to give him a new name, he is no longer in Ranchi 🙂 ). It has a lot of activity in it and our sutradhaar is a hyperactive person. I don’t need to give any proof to show his level of activeness, his commitment to his pets, work and the blog is proof enough. There have been days when I have found him online early in the morning with a post at 5:45 a.m. and a few times his last post has been at 12 in the night. Hats off to his dedication. Approximately 10804 posts (on the day this is being written) and still having a lot of ideas to connect with songs and give us new post daily – AMAZING. Thank you Atulji for giving us this group and site to turn to.

Before I sat to write all this, I read through what I had written last year and I feel the same even now- May God give Atulji health, peace of mind, lots of time and good infrastructural support in the form of unending internet and electrical connections. And we will not mind him being absent from the blog when his family is around as they are more entitled to his time. (Hope he enjoyed his first vacation, this year, after he started the blog) And hope he doesn’t mind us pestering him with our farmaishes. Here is hoping he gives us many opportunities to celebrate and we will keep presenting him with lovely songs.

Coming to today’s song it is from the 1990 release “Izzatdaar” which starred the stalwart Dilip Kumar in the lead with the south Indian actor Raghuvaran as villain. Another southern star- Swapna- played Dilip Kumar’s daughter, Madhuri played his grand daughter and Govinda plays a man who works for the underworld (I think) but gets reformed on falling in love. (the powers of the feeling of love 🙂 ). It was a revenge story with Dilip Kumar avenging his daughter’s death etc. with lot of Bollywood masala. It was directed by K Bapaiah, Anand Bakshi wrote songs which were composed by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. Amit Kumar and Alka Yagnik are the playback.

Wish you a very happy birthday Atulji

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is from ‘Kaho Na…Pyar Hai’, a movie that was released on 14th January 2000. It is produced and directed by Rakesh Roshan. This film was planned as the launch vehicle for Hrithik Roshan in Bollywood with Ameesha Patel playing the female lead. This movie had the new comer Hrithik play a double role which he handled well and the movie was liked by the critics and masses. The songs were a rage and the movie a huge hit.

It was a simple love story where a rich girl (Sonia- Ameesha Patel) and poor boy (Rohit- Hrithik) meet and fall in love much against the girl’s father’s liking. But the twist comes when the boy gets killed in a road accident and a sad heroine discovers his look-alike (Raj) in New Zealand where she goes to recover from the shock of her love’s death. As an added bonus the fellow in New Zealand also falls in love with her; only this boy is decently wealthy. So logically her father should have no objection but again there is a twist- on landing in India the police inspectors who caused Rohit’s accident mistake that Raj is Rohit and start a man-hunt for him. In between all this twist and turns it is revealed that all of this was with Sonia’s father’s instructions. Now please don’t scratch your brains in confusion, the movie ends with Raj and Sonia getting together, and her father and his aides being arrested- very simple story.

We have been visiting this movie every time for Hrithik’s birthday, the last time being 2015. So now everyone has got a clue why this song today.😊! Ah yes, a day late, of course. Hrithik turned 44 yesterday. The song is quite appropriate for the occasion – there is a party and cake and lots of friends and song and dance. Lovely song and such innocence on the faces of the lead actors.

This song is my personal favourite specially the point where Hrithik shows the action of blowing the candles. Oooh! The character he plays in the song is of Rohit. He is being helped by his friend Vrajesh Hirjee in getting the attention of Rajesh Tandon (the fair guy next to Ameesha at the beginning of the song), his boss’s son, who owns a restaurant and is looking for a singer and a live band for the hotel. And all these rich boys and gals are so accommodating that they not only allow the gate-crasher to sing but also enjoy themselves along with him. Hrithik bagged the best male-debut actor of that year along with the best male actor award for this movie – a first in the industry.

The choreographer of this song – Farah Khan – also celebrated her 53rd birthday day before yesterday. She is the niece of former child stars Daisy and Honey Irani, daughter of their sister Maneka Irani and stuntman-turned-filmmaker Kamran Khan. She is a fan of Michael Jackson and is a self-trained dancer. She landed an assignment in Mansoor Khan’s ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar’ (1992) when Saroj Khan left the project. She has won the Filmfare award of best choreographer six times one of it being for a song from ‘Kaho Na Pyar Hai’ – “Ek Pal Ka Jeena“.

Wishing both Hrithik Roshan and Farah Khan a belated Happy Birthday.

hullo Atuldom

So, it is the new year. I have not made any resolutions, as usual, just taking life as it chooses to unfold itself. Anyway, it has always been my way of living. People who are connected with me on WhatsApp must have seen my status message- “Kal kya hoga kis ko pata” I also subscribe to the thought “abhi zindagi ka le lo mazaa”. (this is from a song by Gulshan Bawra)
My todays post is a song from the 1994 release “Aag” starring Govinda, Shilpa Shetty, Sonali Bendre (in a special appearance) with Kader Khan, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Shakti Kapoor, Goga Kapoor, Gulshan Grover, Suresh Chatwal etc. etc. in the supporting cast. This movie was directed by K. Ravi Shankar and released in August 1994. This was a change of image for Govinda in the sense that it had him play a serious character.

The story goes like this-

Orphaned at a very young age, Raju (Govinda) lives a poor lifestyle with his unmarried sister, Laxmi (Prajakta Kulkarni). Both are of marriageable age. One-day Raju meets an attractive fellow-collegian, Parul (Sonali Bendre), and after a few encounters both fall in love. But Parul’s uncle, has already arranged her marriage with Police Inspector Suryadev Singh (Shakti Kapoor). When Suryadev finds out that Parul is refusing to marry him, he arrests Raju on a charge of murder, holds him in jail, and beats him mercilessly.
Laxmi, quite dramatically, takes a gun from a policeman, and helps Raju escape so as to prevent Parul from being forcibly married to Suryadev. They do manage to arrive in time, only to find that Parul has consumed poison and killed herself. Raju is beside himself with rage, is captured by the police, and watches helplessly as Parul is cremated. His horrors have not ended as Suryadev sexually assault’s Laxmi and leaves her in a mentally unstable condition.

Raju takes Laxmi with him to a small village, where he hides her from other people as she has become visibly pregnant, and changes his name to Birju. He meets with a lovely village belle by the name of Bijli (Shilpa Shetty), who wants to marry him. What Raju does not know is that Bijli, the nautanki dancer, is a plainclothes policewoman, Inspector Barkha Sharma, who has been assigned to arrest him at any cost. She does confront him, and he confesses to killing Parul’s uncle and Barkha calls for reinforcements to escort Raju to jail. The Inspector-in-charge of the reinforcements is none other than Suryadev — and this time he is determined to finish Raju once and for all.

Now why did I pick up this movie and this particular raunchy song for posting today? Because we have our today’s birthday boy lip-syncing to singer Hariharan in it. No-no not Kader Khan, he has Sudesh Bhonsle singing for him. I am talking of Sadashiv Amrapurkar. Born on 2nd January 1950 in Ahmednagar Maharashtra he made his way to movies via theatre. His first film was Govind Nihalani’s “Ardh Satya” for which he won that year’s filmfare award for best supporting actor. In 1993 when filmfare added a category of best villain he won it for his act as “maharani” a eunuch in Mahesh Bhatt’s “Sadak”. 1993 saw him play inspector Pyare Mohan- a person who has a problem of forgetting things- in David Dhawan’s “Aankhen”. He showed he was good in comedy. Even in “Aag” along with Kader Khan he provided comic relief.

Today’s song shows how the all the gents of the village react when Bijli- the dancer- makes her entry into the village. We have Dinesh Hingoo, Suresh Chatwal and assorted villagers trying to entertain us in this song. Alka Yagnik sings for Shilpa Shetty, Sameer is the lyricist and Dilip Sen- Sameer Sen the music composers.

Today’s song is from a comparatively new film ‘Lagaan’ (2001). The song,written by Javed Akhtar and composed by AR Rahman, is sung by 5 singers, viz. Alka Yagnik, Shaan, Shankar Mahadevan, Sukhwinder Singh and Udit Narayan. Why do I feel some readers are smiling after reading my above sentence calling ‘Lagaan’ as a new film ? As compared to what my forte has been so far (old films from 1930s to 1970), ‘Lagaan’ IS a comparatively new film. . . at least for me !

I have always believed that there are no boundaries for good films and good music. Fortunately, even today, we still get occasional good films. Of course everybody’s views may be different on this issue. I found that today, the films have better technical values, a bigger canvas and they try to cater to the Indian as well as non Indian audience, since nowadays most big budget films are shown outside India, where they are in big demand.

I am a great fan of Aamir Khan – the Actor. As a person, I don’t like his views, quotes and antics, but I respect his dedication to the roles he does in his films. Despite so many years, he has retained his quality of acting, involvement and his urge to excel and be a different actor. That is why, probably, he chooses to do fewer films than his other contemporaries. May be he believes that “Quantity is always at the cost of quality” !

When Ashutosh Govarikar, the director of ‘Lagaan’, first wrote the film script of ‘Lagaan’, he had decided that only Aamir khan is fit to do the role of Bhuvan. However, after hearing the script, Aamir Khan flatly refused to do the film. He told Ashutosh, “You have broken every rule of Hindi film making in this script (there are 5 such rules). There is a great risk in the film. Dont count me in this “.

Undeterred, Ashutosh made another draft, along with some dialogues. It took him one year. Then he contacted Aamir again, “I have a fresh script”. Aamir was ready to listen, but he asked “I hope it is not the same one having cricket and lagaan ?”  Ashutosh confirmed it was the same. Aamir said, “Then I don’t want to waste 3 hours of mine and yours. Forget it.” When Ashutosh insisted as a friend, Aamir gave him time. . . after one month.

After hearing the revised script, Aamir seemed excited and said, “Yes, I will do this film.”  Then the question came about producer. They went to many producers, but none was ready to do this film. One producer suggested, “In the end show that Bhuvan stabs Captain Russel with a stump, after the match.”  Ashutosh left his place without even responding. Finally they decided that the film has to be produced by Aamir himself. Aamir floated a company – Aamir Khan Productions Pvt Ltd. He and Mansoor Khan produced the film. This was probably the first time when a production company was formed for a script. Normally first the company is formed and the script comes later.

Some critics tried to claim that the ‘Lagaan’ theme is a copy or inspired from ‘Naya Daur’ (1957). Like Shankar in ‘Naya Daur’, Bhuvan also accepts the challenge inspite of villagers’ opposition. Like Rajni,  Gauri supports Bhuvan. Ajit, the one sided lover of Rajni, becomes hero’s enemy in ‘Naya Daur’. In ‘Lagaan’, Yashpal Sharma (Lakha) loves Gauri and becomes Bhuvan’s enemy etc. They showed the film to BR Chopra. He was terribly impressed and immediately wrote a letter to them. He said “In ‘Naya Daur’ the theme was ‘Man v/s Machine’. In your film the theme is ‘Man v/s the Oppressor”. It is totally different, no similarity at all. It is an independent excellent story.”

Ashutosh was very clear in his approach. The film was NOT on cricket. It was on an unjustified taxation and the villagers’ fight against it. ‘Fight for survival’ was the principle here. Villagers were unhappy as there were no rains and then this double Lagaan (taxation) came. The film showed how people get ready to fight the injustice. Even in the advertisements of the film, cricket was never mentioned initially.

The film created records in India as well as abroad. Whenever the film was shown in any International Film Festival and to the Oscar dignitaries, distributors used to throng for rights. The film was dubbed in French and Italian. It became the first Hindi film to be shown in Sweden, Finland and Brazil. The population in those countries did not even know what was the game of cricket. What appealed to them was the villager’s fight against injustice. In few countries just before the film. the general rules of cricket were shown to the audience.

The cast of the film is Aamir Khan, Gracy Singh, Suhasini Mulay, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Raghuveer Yadav, Rachel Shelley, Paul Blackthorne etc. Before the film was released anywhere, it was first shown to people of Bhuj, where it was shot, as per Aamir’s promise. It was released in United Kingdom, China, Italy, France, USA, Germany, Japan, Malaysia, Hong kong, the middle east and many other countries. In India, it was released on 15-6-2001, along with its premiere in UK. With a budget of Rs 250 million, it grossed 700  million rupees in its first week itself.

I liked this movie very much, like many other Aamir Khan films. I am not giving its story which is too well known. it was given by our own Nahm ji when she discussed its first song on this blog some time back. By coincidence, Peevesie’s Dad ji posted the second song of this film, coinciding with our young member and his daughter Peevesie’s birthday on Saturday, the 23rd December. Today’s song is the 3rd song from the film. The film has 7 songs and one dance instrumental piece. All songs are written by Javed Akhtar and composed by AR Rahman.

The situation of this song, which is a song from film’s opening scenes, is that villagers are worried as there are no rains for a long time. Suddenly, dark black clouds gather over the skies, making them feel that rains will come anytime now. They start celebrations and sing this song. But Alas ! the black clouds disappear as suddenly as they had come and gloom spreads over the village again. Just watch the feelings on the faces of the villagers before and after the cloud entry and exit. Enjoyable song. . . and the film !

dhamak dhamak goonje badraa ke danke
chamak chamak dekho bijuriya chamke
mann dhadkaaye badarwaa
mann dhadkaaye badarwaa
mann
mann dhadkaaye badarwaa. . .

pedon par jhoole daalo
aur oonchi paing badhaao
kaale megha kaale megha
paani to barsaao
kaale megha kaale megha
paani to barsaao
bijuri ki talwaar nahin
boondon ke baan chalaao

hey..ey.ey hey ey
hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm
ho oo oo oo ooooo

aai hai rut matwaali
bichhaane hariyaali
ye apne sang mein laayi hai saawan ko
ye bijuri ki paayal
ye baadal ka aanchal
sajaane laayi hai dharti ki dulhan ko
daali daali pehnegi phoolon ke kangan
sukh ab barsega aangan aangan..nn..nn
khilegi ab kali kali
hansegi ab gali gali
hawa jo chali
to rut lagi bhali
jalaa de jo tan mann wo dhoop dhali

ghanan ghanan ghan
ghanan ghanan ghan

kaale megha kaale megha
paani to barsaao
paani to barsaao
bijuri ki talwaar nahin
boondon ke baan chalaao
boondon ke baan chalaao
ghanan ghanan ghir ghir aaye badraa
ghan ghanghor kaare chhaaye badraa
dhamak dhamak goonje badraa ke danke
chamak chamak dekho. . .

ghanan ghanan ghan

ghanan ghanan ghan

कोयलिया गाएगी बैठी मुँडेरों पर
जो पंछी गाएँगे
नए दिन आएंगे
उजाले मुस्कुरा देंगे अँधेरों पर
प्रेम की बरखा में
भीगे भीगे तन मन
धरती पे देखेंगे पानी का दर्पण

आई है रूत मतवाली

ये अपने संग में लाई है सावन को
ये बिजुरी की पायल

सजाने लाई है धरती की दुल्हन को
डाली डाली पहनेगी फूलों के कंगन
सुख अब बरसेगा आँगन आँगन॰॰न्न॰॰न्न
खिलगे अब कली कली
हँसेगी अब गली गली
हवा जो चली

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.

Today’s song is a complete turn around from my style of writing on old films and music. Today’s song is from the film “Chameli ki shaadi”(1986). Usually I restrict my choice of songs to the period between 1930s to the 1960s films. But there are some films made after 1970 ( and some made even after the year 2000) which I liked very much. “Chameli ki shaadi”(1986) is one such film.

There are many movies which come and disappear becoming forgotten over time. It is such movies that take time to make their debuts on our blog. This movie “Kaun Hai Woh?” (1983) is one such movie. Its songs are not available on YouTube. Its artists are no longer in the limelight and the movies songs lie in the dust with some collectors.

Hullo to all the ek din ka gods

My salutation is such because Indian culture (as seen in Indian movies) has taught us that Pati Parmeshwar hota hai. i.e. husbands are to be treated as Gods. I am sure no lady will object to this if the husbands also treat their wives as devis- meaning Goddesses. But we will not get into this discussion on this auspicious day.

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.

This is the story of a ‘self-proprietorship firm’ uniquely named ‘Atul Song A Day’ (hereinafter called the Company) which was set up on July 19, 2008 by Atul Besra. In his venture, he received encouragement from Raja, his Cricforum friend. The mission was to produce at least one song a day. However, due to abundant supply of ‘raw material’ and the demand for the ‘finished product’, the production was increased to more than one song a day within 3 months of its existence.
