A. R. Rehman – The musician of 21st century – 2
————————————————————–

64th Birthday of Kavita Krishnamurthy
——————————————————————

Once upon a time, in our office, the crowd was more interfering in each other’s lives. There would be judgmental comments about each other, if someone works very hard, there was gossip about them. If someone is not very hard working there would be gossip and snide comments about them. 90’s and early 2000’s was a time when all had more time to bother about other people. Interference is one way to look at it. We were in one corner of Mumbai, and there were very few people who travelled long distances to arrive, and most of us were from nearby areas. There was less of anonymity or disregard of big city atmosphere. Come to think of it, most of us used to think of the office as a second home. As the working day would be full of work, talking to people and friends. We were more open to all sort of talk, discussions and even gossip. The office building would be like a small village, where everyone knew everything about everyone. That was an atmosphere, where, every new day was a new beginning. And come weekend, we would be full of plans for the next week. On Monday, we will do this or start on that work.

I don’t know, it feels as if things have gradually changed over the decades. Now every Friday, most of us actually feel joy that there will be no office for 2 days. Long weekend is more joyous, we all wish each other happy weekend. Whereas earlier it was, ‘see you on Monday’.
There was no A.C. in the office, nor fancy blinds or fancy name plates on the cabins, not much eating out and very few snack parties. But those were the happier days. Today, I have more money to spend, more authority to assert, freer to shop what ever the sales persons bring to sell, more snacks and lunch to order from outside eateries, as the office canteen is still is very bad. But the comradery of old days is absent. For sure, not all is ingenuine, but still the happiness quotient is gone. Or maybe I am simply bored.

Yeah, change is a part of life. Colleagues and friends of the older generation have all retired. Some of the dear friends have moved away, or transferred to different places. One corner of Mumbai has begun to feel and behave like a city. I am ready to admit, that I may have also changed. As we mature, it brings a certain discretion, in how we deal with new people. What was working and meeting with other people, has now become more of a dealing with people. Or having learnt from so many experiences, I have learnt to have superficial contact with people. I thought being superficial is just not my nature. But recently, I am introspecting, that maybe I have become like everyone else. Not a good sight.

I have seen some people in my life, and every time I have resolved, never to be like them. Some times we encounter people with really ugly mindset. I have a friend, who would always be looking for excuses, why certain person behaves like that, or has such type of manner. For a longish time, I also tried to look the other way, whenever such ugliness showed its face. I became so adept at ignoring things, that it would take a new person coming into the set up and that person would show me with examples, that such and such things are happening and I am not even aware. So, this was actually a sort of tuning out, from the atmosphere, so the bad things are totally ignored.

The reason I went into the flashback and into those good old days is the song from the film ‘Taal’. In early 2000’s we used to have lot of extra curricular activities in the office. One of the favourite events was ‘antakshari’. In one of those competitions, I had my friend as my partner. This one was a serious competition, very serious with all the contestants very keen to win. The hosts had done lot of hard work, to prepare for the tough rounds. One such tough rounds were picking up chits of a set of words, and recognize the song, which I found to be very easy. We did very well in that round. We did well in the round for recognizing the mukhda from the stanza also. Then there was the round of ‘dumb-charade’ where the chit was for movie name. My partner, picked up the chit and it was ‘Taal’. She made the suitable ‘Taal’ action and I knew the name. But unfortunately, I could not sing any song, none would come to mind. Both me and my friend were repeating ‘taal se taal milaa’, but that is not mukhda. So, we lost those crucial points, despite recognizing so many of the songs in stanza/mukhda round and the ‘set of word’ round, we finished second.

The movie ‘Taal’ was produced and directed by Subhash Ghai, who celebrated his birthday on 24/01/2022. Now it is the birthday of Kavita krishnamurthy today, so the second version is by Kavita Krishnamurthy and Sukhwendra Singh with Chorus. First version is actually a group song, which has Sonu Nigam with ARR, Anuradha Sriram, and Sujata Mohan. This song has long been in the list of Sonu Nigam songs, which I want to post. No better occasion, then Kavita Krishnamurthy’s birthday and post no. two of series on ARR. The Kavita Krishnamurthy version is listed as a separate song actually, but the same mukhda of first version is part of this song too, so it is a version song. The songs are picturized on Aishwarya Rai, Anil Kapoor and Akshaye Khanna.

Those were cable TV days, so I have seen this movie on cable TV. Some Sundays were spent watching movies on cable TV, 2-5 and then 6-9 shows. They would show the newer movies at 11-2 also sometimes. Like all Subash Ghai movies, this was also a musical, teaming up with ARR for the first time, who teamed up with Anand Bakshi as lyricist for the first time. I find this score of a purely hindi film much more attractive then, the dubbed songs in Mani Ratnam films.
More on ARR in coming posts, so we can listen to this wonderful sufiana/situational song.

Song Date of post Singer(s)
Maine ek ladki pasand kar li 30 August 2008 Rafi
Teri haseen nigaah ka ehsaanmand hoon 4 January 2012 Rafi-Lata

As “blog Ten Year Challenge” today (4 January 2022), here is a song from “Devi”(1970). The song is sung by Rafi and a kid voice, credited as a kid who would later be known as Baba Sahgal.

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that the song is picturised on Sanjeev Kumar and Baby Sarika. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Pancham Da continued to give his best in this year too like the previous years. He composed music for eighteen movies in 1985, one more than the tally of seventeen in 1984.

His music of 1985 was a mix of some excellent, very good and good music. Songs of ‘Alag-Alag’, ‘Saagar’, ‘Arjun’, ‘Savere Waali Gaadi’, ‘Zabardast’, ‘Laava’, ‘Sitamgar’, ‘Raahi Badal Gaye’ (ik baat dil mein aayi hain) were quite popular and frequently heard.

For today’s presentation we have a song from the movie ‘Aar Paar-1985’. This movie will make its debut on the blog today. This was one of the reasons to select a song from this movie. The other reason being that the song is sung by R.D. Burman himself. Another reason is that this song is a lesser-heard song as well. But if one listens to this song a few times it grows upon you. It is a very nice hummable philosophical song.

Today (4 january 2022) happens to be the twenty-eighth ‘Remembrance Day’ (27 June 1939 – 4 January 1994) of our beloved Pancham Da. It has been twenty-eight years since he left us forever. But the music that he created will remain with us forever as long as HFM is around.

This is the fifth song in this series. I had kept this song up my sleeve for this day after drafting it more than one month back.

The song being posted today is our tribute to ‘Pancham Da’ and his ‘music’ in HFM.

The song is from the movie ‘Aar-Paar’(1985). ‘Aar-Paar'(1985) was directed by Shakti Samanta for his home productions ‘Shakti Films, Bombay’. Shakti Samanta was also the producer of this movie. It was an Indo-Bangladesh Co-Production. And Syed Hasan Imam (of Chitrangan-Dhaka) was the Co-Producer of this movie from Bangladesh.

‘Aar-Paar'(1985) had Mithun Chakravarty, Rosina, Nutan, Asit Sen, Utpal Dutt, Manik Dutt, Tarun Ghose, Ghulam Mustafa, Hasan Imam, A.T.M. Shamsuz Zaman, Ahmed Sharif, Ghulam Rafique, Madhu, Shekhar, Amal Bose, Kali Pada Sen, Bullet, Qutub, Mohammad Ali, Chunnu, Minhaz, Barua, Nurul Islam, Sumita Devi, Shahre Banu, Maya Ghose, Reena, Papiya and others.

Story of this movie was written by Shakti Pada Rajguru. Screenplay of this movie was jointly written by Shakti Samanta and Shanu Bannerjee.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Pradeep Roy Chowdhury. Bijoy Chowdhury was the editor of this movie.

This movie had six songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by R.D. Burman. kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Shailendra Singh, Sabeena, Yasmin and R.D. Burman had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.11.1985.

Let us now listen to today’s song which is played in the background while we can see some policemen taking Mithun Chakravarty with them while some villagers (including friends of Mithun Chakravarty in the movie) are seen watching them.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by R.D. Burman. lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. Music is composed by R.D. Burman.

(This post also serves of bringing movies with same title on the blog. With this song Aar-Paar(1985) joins the well-known movie ‘Aar Paar-(1954) in the blog.

In the previous post in this series ‘Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 8’ we had discussed how Rajesh Khanna in the late seventies switched on to different roles exploring and introspecting himself and taking a new challenge for his ‘second innings’.

In the late seventies and early eighties, he has a string of successful movies viz. ‘Amardeep’ (1979), ’Thodi Si Bewafaai’ (1980), and critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose) (1980), ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980), and ‘Bandish’ (1980).

In 1981 he tasted more success with movies like ‘Dard’, ‘Dhanwan’, ‘Dil e Naadan’, ‘Qudrat’ and ‘Fifty-Fifty’.

‘Qudrat’ (1981) was a multi-starrer movie and had good success at the box-office. That saw Kaka putting more efforts to change his image and considering films in the ‘multi-starrer’ and ‘action’ genres, which he thought earlier was not his ‘cup of tea’. It can also be said that these two ‘genres’, where he was not doing films, were partly responsible for the failure of his earlier movies on the box-office.

In 1982 we had Kaka’s films like ‘Raaput’, ‘Ashaanti’, ‘Dharam Kaanta’ which were multi-starrer as well as action movies. He further continued doing such ‘multi-starrer-masaala’ films like ‘Paapi Pet Ka Sawaal Hai’, ‘Dharm Aur Qaanoon’, ‘Maqsad’, ‘Bewafaai’, ‘Awaam’, ‘Vijay’, etc. coming in the next few years.

Today’s song is from one of the above movies and that movie is ‘Ashaanti’. This song also beautifully catches the ‘spirit of team efforts’ instead of a ‘one-man-show’ and advocates ‘helping each other’ to get success.

‘Ashaanti’ is directed by Umesh Mehra for Eagle Films, Bombay, and is produced by Parvesh C. Mehra.

The movie has Rajesh Khanna, Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi, Shabana Azmi, Mithun Chakravarty, Kanwaljeet, Amrish Puri, Jeevan, Narendra Nath, Monty, Mac Mohan, Kishore Kapoor, Yusuf Khan, Ram Sethi, Nadira, Satyen Kappu, Bob Christo, Mohan Choti, Avtar Gill, Ajay Agrawal, Amir Jambra, Yusuf, Ganesh, and others. Prem Kishan and Ramesh Deo makes a special appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 01.05.1982.

This movie has five songs composed by RD Burman. Lyrics for all the five songs are penned by Anand Bakshi. Following is the list of songs this movie had.

We can see all the above movies had great music too as usual for Kaka movies.

Coming back to the today’s song it is from the movie 1982 movie ‘Ashaanti’. As mentioned above Lyrics for all the songs are written by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by RD Burman.

In today’s song Rajesh Khanna is lip-syncing for the voice of Kishore Kumar, Mithun Chakravarty for Shailendra Singh, Kanwaljeet for Kishore Kumar and Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi and Shabana Azmi are lip-syncing for the voice of Asha Bhonsle.

We can see many others in the picturisation of this song.

Let us now enjoy this foot-tapping song now …

Hullo Atuldom

“Azaad” (1978) made its debut on the blog in 2014 with this song. The post contains details of the movie and its synopsis.

After four years, on the occasion of Dharam Paaji’s birthday I had sent this song on the blog. Therein I have stated how I came to appreciate Dharmendra the actor, the songs of his which I love etc.

I was looking for possible songs to post for Dharam Paaji’s 86th birthday. I went through all the Dharmendra movies that are on the blog; movies with one or two songs left to attain YYIIPPEEEEhood. Then I looked for popular movies of the ’80s, ’90s and later which featured our favourite actor/ star. I found numerous possible songs but decided to go back to “Azaad”. That is story of how this song find a place on the blog today.

The song is sung by Kishore Kumar, written by Anand Bakshi and tuned by RDB. We see our Dharam Paaji on a journey on Horseback in search of greener pastures, away from his hometown after he promises his bhabhi that he will mend his ways and not get into unnecessary squabbles.

Wishing a very Happy Birthday to our dearest Veeru a.k.a Dharam Paaji. May he be healthy witty and happy with all his family and close people.

Hullo Atuldom

Chal chameli baagh mein was a post by our Nahmji to wish Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma (one-half of the Laxmi-Pyare duo) on his 80th birthday. The song was from Shubash Ghai’s “Krodhi”. The post also gives us a brief synopsis of the movie, the cast and people associated with the music of the film.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle as playback for Shashi Kapoor and Zeenat Aman. It is a song at the wedding of Zeenat’s sister (Madhu Malhotra is the actress) and of the chhed-chhaad variety where the ‘ladkiwaale’ and ‘ladkewaale’ keep talking of the benevolence of the bride and groom towards each other. It was a song which I had in memory for a long time and Nahmji’s post last year brought it out of cold-storage (so to speak).

We remember the cute gentleman ‘Shashi Kapoor’ today on his 4th death anniversary today. He had a long run on the silver screen having begun as a child actor in the late 40s with movies like his brother, Raj Kapoor’s directorial “Aag” & “Awaara”. He had played the childhood of Ashok Kumar in ‘Sangram’ and Bharat Bhushan in ‘Dana Paani’, he was credited as Master Shashiraj in these movies. An interesting trivia that I just recollected is that he has played Ashok Kumar’s son in a few films in the ’70s and ’80s and Bharat Bhushan’s son in ‘Pyar Ka Mausam’ (there may be other such movies too).

He made a charming pair with all of his female co-stars be it Nanda, Mumtaz, Rekha, Rakhee, Hema, Parveen Babi, Sharmila Tagore, Babita and many others. He was cast opposite Indrani Mukherjee in his first adult role in ‘Dharmputra’ and his final film appearance was in the 1998 Pakistani-British epic biographical film ‘Jinnah’ where he was the narrator.

I was particularly in love with his pairing with Amitabh Bachchan, the two appeared together in 12 films starting with ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’. He had acted in about 116 films of which 61 were as solo hero and 55 were multi-starrers. At one point in his career his older brother Raj Kapoor had called him a ‘Taxi’ as he was working in many movies at the same time.

Let us also take this opportunity to wish our own Zeenie Baby on turning 70 this year. Her birthday was on 19th November. For fans of Bollywood, who were young or kids in the ’70s, it may be difficult to believe that Zeenat Aman turned 70. Zeenat- who was a style icon in her days. An actress who was not always cast as the typical Bharatiya Nari. An actress who was comfortable in whatever she wore even if it was a two-piece bikini- which was, not exactly, a preferred costume of the actresses of her period specially if they played the main lead. She had a unique style and diction for delivering her dialogues which made her the perfect choice for playing modern convent-educated characters back then. She was a decent dancer too.

Missing the super cute Balbir Raj Kapoor a.k.a. Shashi Kapoor and wishing health and happiness to Zeenat Aman.

Hullo Atuldom

26th Ocotober is a day when we wish the first Follower of the blog Rajaji on turning a year younger. He is the ‘yaaron-ka-yaar’ who is currently off the radar. Hope he marks his presence on the blog and reads this post. He is not a kanjoos (and I have a whole set of the followers of the blog who will endorse my statement) and will not shy away from giving us a treat by saying a “Hello”. Actually, I sincerely hope he is fine, the last post by him, as a guest contributor, was on 8th March 2021- for the birth centenary of his favourite lyricist/ poet Sahir Ludhianvi.

Our Rajaji was one of the first to see posts on Atulsongaday. One of the first to post his Farmaish to Atulji. And if I am not wrong, one of the first guest contributors as lyrics contributor in April 2009 with this post of a song from ‘Bin Baadal Barsaat’ . His first full-length post was Teri umar naadaan hai on 26 june 2010 from “Aankhon Aankhon Mein”(1972) and since then he has been a regular contributor and loves to write about Rajesh Khanna, Mohd. Rafi, Kishore Kumar and of course Sahir Ludhianvi. In the interim he has also written posts on some artistes whose work he appreciates. Here is wishing this friendly Atulite all health and happiness and waiting for his next post- essay, novel or short story anything but in your unique style Rajaji.

26th October also happens to be the birth date of an actress (don’t like to use the adjective yesteryear for this one, too young for that) who was known to be cast in the roles of typical heroine i.e. one emotional scene, two haughty scenes, three or four duets or solos and that is about it. There is a period in every actress’s career when she reaches the top-spot doing this kind of inane roles. Then she tires of it and tries to break the shackles and get cast in some roles that gives her chance to show her emoting and acting capabilities.

Today’s birthday girl made her Bollywood debut as Salman Khan’s heroine in ‘Patthar Ke Phool’ went on to co-star with all the biggies of that era and reaching heights of popularity as the ‘mast mast’ girl in ‘Mohra’ She was ready to give it all up sometime in 1995 for the sake of family and marriage. But when things didn’t work out the way she expected them to, she made a successful comeback with movies opposite Govinda which were from the David Dhawan stable. She played meaningful or non-glamourous characters in movies like “Shool” (1999) “Daman” (2002) “Satta” (2005) and “Jaago” in 2004 where she played the mother of a ten-year-old gang-rape-victim who dies in front of her.
Do I need mention the name of the actress- Raveena Tandon? She finally took a hiatus from acting after marriage and kids (as per her original plan for life) and has four children two of whom she adopted when the girls were 11 and 8 and she herself was only 21.

I may not call myself her fan but I like this actress for her sprightly acting, Today’s song is from the 1997 crime -drama “Ghulam-e-Mustafa” which was directed by Partho Ghosh and had a cast headed by Nana Patekar and Raveena Tandon played a night club dancer who falls in love with Mustafa (Nana Patekar) on hearing his life story. They even get married and have a happy life, which is short lived as Kavitha (Raveena) gets killed in a car bomb explosion which was meant for Abba (Paresh Rawal). The cast also included Ravi Behl, Aruna Irani, Keerthi Chawla, Shivaji Satam, Sulabha Deshpande, Mohan Joshi, Mohnish Bahl etc. Rajesh Roshan and Amar Haldipur were the music directors, and the song with this post has been credited to Anand Bakshi. Myswar.com says that Amar Haldipur was responsible for the background score.

This songs sees our birthday girl Raveena Tandon as a new bride out for a joy trip when their Gypsy breaks down, of course I need not explain the visuals of the song and will just say that she dies after this.

I would also like to wish the daughter of an Atulite on her birthday today. Hope this message is conveyed to your little girl and wish her all the best for her future.
Once more wishing all the best and happy birthday to our Rajaji, the little one of our Atulite and Raveena Tandon.

Happy

‘Ye Gulistaan Hamaara’ (1972) was produced and directed by Atma Ram under the banner of Guru Dutt Films Combined. The star cast included Dev Anand and Sharmila Tagore in the lead roles supported by Pran, Iftikhar, Sujit Kumar, Johny Walker, Jaishree T, Lalita Pawar, Kanan Kaushal, Ramesh Deo, Raj Mehra, Keshav Rana, Janakidas etc.

The story is woven around a bridge which is being constructed over Dihing River in North-East India for a good connectivity. But the local tribals are oppose to it. They think that this is one way of imposing the slavery on the local tribes in the name of infrastructural development. This sentiment is exploited by some foreign agents who instigate the tribal chieftain to destroy the under-construction bridge. It is at this point, Dev Anand as an Intelligence Bureau Officer is sent to supervise the construction of the bridge without any hindrances.

How Dev Anand achieves the objective by overcoming the tribal opposition to construction of the bridge is the rest of the story that moves forward. If the film was to be made in English, it would have been apt to name the film as ‘The Bridge on the River Dihing’ on the lines of a well- known Hollywood film ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai’.

The film’s outdoor shooting was done in Assam (near Digboi where a bridge was under construction), Meghalaya, and Arunachal Pradesh. During the shooting of the film, the crew faced the hostile crowd led by the Naga Students Federation in Shillong. Some stone throwing incidences were also reported. The Naga students felt that it was a politically motivated film to insult the Naga tribal culture. Sharmila Tagore played the role of a Naga girl named ‘Sekrenyi’ which is the name of the holy festival of Angami Naga tribe. It is said that with the intervention of Bhupen Hazarika, the shooting of the film went on smoothly thereafter. The name of Sharmila Tagore’s character in the film was changed to ‘Soo Reni’.

In my younger days, I had read in the newspapers about the opposition of local tribals in laying the railway tracks in Meghalaya (Guwahati to Byrnihat). I understand that this line is yet to be operational. The same problem is faced for the railway track between Silchar and Imphal in Manipur. The main worry the local tribals is that good connectivity would lead to the influx of outsiders in their tribal belts threatening their own existence and culture. I feel that ‘Ye Gulistaan Hamaara’ (1972) was a ‘half-baked’ attempt to remove tribal population’s worries about the likely cultural dominance by the rest of India over the North-East’s tribal culture.

At the time of the release of the film, Naga Students Federation took out the protest march for banning the film on the ground of undermining the Naga tribal culture. They also felt that a couple of songs in the film sounded racial. In any case, they opposed the released of the film in Nagaland and Meghalaya. There were violent protests on the streets of Shillong. Finally, the film was released in 1973 after incorporating a notice in the film itself that ‘customs depicted in film, folk dances, dresses etc have no parallel with any of the tribes in Nagaland’. Some songs’ wordings were also changed to appease the protestors.

Initially, Danny Denzongpa was to perform the role of Dev Anand’s local associate in the film. S D Burman had already recorded a song in Danny voice along with Lata Mangeshkar. However, Johny Walker insisted with Atma Ram that he should also get a role in the film. Atma Ram agreed to take Johny Walker in place of Danny. However, Danny’s first song as a playback singer was retained which was picturised on Johny Walker. I personally feel that the role of a local person would have fitted well on Danny because of his facial feature. But at that time, Danny was a newcomer to protest. His consolation must have been the debut song he sang under the baton of S D Burman which was well appreciated.

‘Ye Gulistaan Hamaara’ (1972) had 7 songs of which six songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Six songs have been covered on the Blog, details of which areas under:

Songs Date of Posting Singers
Gori gori gaaon ki gori re 30/10/2008 Kishore Kumar – Lata
Mera naam yaao mere paas aao 17/01/2009 Dany Denzongpa-Lata
Naina soyi soyi raina jaage jaage 09/06/2013 Lata Mangeshkar

Saare jahaan se achcha Hindostaan hamaara 26/01/2021 Sushma Shreshta and Kids -1, Chorus Version-2

I am presenting the 7th and the final song, ‘kya ye zindagi hai kaisi bebasi hai’ from the film which is rendered by Lata Mangeshkar, S D Burman and chorus. The song is written by Anand Bakshi. The song has its uniqueness in that when Lata Mengeshkar sings, the chorus voices parallelly sing some words which I am unable to decipher.

With this song, all the songs from the film ‘Ye Gulistaan Hamaara’ (1972) have been covered on the Blog.

Lyrics (Based on the Audio Clip):

kya ye zindagi hai
kaisi bebasi hai
bolo kyun khade ho gumsum
kya ye zindagi hai
kaisi bebasi hai
bolo kyun khade ho gumsum
ek baar mila de na
ek baar mila de na

sadiyon se yoon hi
sar pe dukhon kaa
bojha uthaaye
in parbaton pe
ham chal rahen hain
bhookhe nange pyaase
laao haath
laao haath
apne saath
laao haath apne saath
chalke dekho do kadam tum
kya ye zindagi hai
kaisi bebasi hai
bolo kyun khade ho gumsum

kitni hai doori ee
ham bade peechhe
tum bade aage
tumhen chhoo naa paaye
tumhen chhoo bhi len to
thukraaye jaayen
apna mel
nahin khel
apna mel
nahin khel
o baabu kahaan hum kahaan tum
kya ye zindagi hai
kaisi bebasi hai
bolo kyun khade ho gumsum
ek baar mila de na
ek baar mila de na

hamne ye maana
ham to bure hain
hamne ki buraayi
tum to bhale ho.o o
tumne hamaari
ki hai kya bhalaayi
samjhaao
sikhlaao
samjhaao
sikhlaao
gale se lagaa ke hamen tum
kya ye zindagi hai
kaisi bebasi hai
bolo kyun khade ho gumsum

Hullo Atuldom

Remembering our very own Abhas Kumar Ganguly with this post on his death anniversary. It is 34 years since he bade goodbye to this mortal world but his works are still with us- his fans and followers.

He was a versatile singer, actor, writer, producer, director, composer etc. In short an all-rounder who was the voice of many generations of actors beginning with Dev Anand for whom his voice was first used in 1948. World over, lovers of Hindi film music just love and adore this artiste and he himself was a huge fan of the actor-singer of the early-talkies and films of the ’30s and ’40s- K.L. Saigal. Abhas Kumar Ganguly had a great respect for the poet/ musician Rabindranath Tagore.

He could sing an ‘eena meena deeka’ with the same ease as he sang ‘koi humdum na raha koi sahara na raha’. His fans loved his voice on Ashok Kumar, Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Jeetendra and every single actor that graced the silver-screen from 1948 (when he made his debut) to 1987 (till death took him away from us). There were some actors of the older generation (meaning ’50s and ’60s) who had other singers as their permanent go-to voice; but Kishore Kumar (as Abhas Kumar Ganguly was popularly called) sang for these people in the later part of their careers- post 1970, I mean to say. Kishoreda’s voice was used for the next generation of actors too meaning Dharam’s son Sunny, Rajendra Kumar’s son Kumar Gaurav, Sunil Dutt’s son Sanjay Dutt , and all of Raj Kapoor’s sons etc. in addition to the new entrant actors of the ’70s and ’80s like Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff etc. I have a feeling that if he had been around then the Khans of the ’90s would have sounded different but that was not to be.

It is Sharad Navaratri and so I searched for a song/mata bhajan to go with this post. I am not sure how many songs Kishoreda has sung in this genre, but I do remember there are a few under Bappi Lahiri and Laxmi Pyare’s music direction in some ‘made in South India’ films.
Today’s is from the 1986 release “Swarag Se Sundar”. On-screen Jaya Prada and Jeetendra lip-sync to Kishoreda and Lata didi and appeal to the Devi maa to cure the child of their family, of whatever ailment it is suffering from; the “dawa ki nahin, dua ki zaroorat hai” situation (I have seen this movie a few times over the years, the child is shown to have high fever).

“Swarag Se Sundar” was a movie directed by K. Bapaiah, had dialogues by Kadar Khan, songs written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi-Pyare were the music composers. Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar were the playback singers used. Mithun Chakraborty and Padmini Kolhapure played the second couple with Shubha Khote, Aruna Irani, Shoma Anand, Kadar Khan, Prem Chopra, Asrani, Bharat Bhushan, Satyen Kappu etc in supporting cast.

Hullo Atuldom

10th October is the birth date of the ageless Bollywood Diva Bhanurekha Ganesan.

I don’t remember which was my first post on the blog on her birthday, but over the last few years I have been trying to write out a song and present her with an actor who was not one of her regular heroes; meaning someone except Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Jeeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Mehra etc. Today’s song is also one such song.

This song is from the 2000 release “Bulandi” which was directed by T. Rama Rao. It had a cast of Rajnikanth (special appearance), Anil Kapoor, Harish (from South Indian films), and Rekha, Raveena Tandon, Aruna Irani along with Shakti Kapoor, Ranjeet, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Paresh Rawal, Sadashiv Amrapurkar in supporting cast. Songs of the movie were penned by Anand Bakshi and tuned by Viju Shah. The playback singers used were Udit Narayan, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Anuradha Paudwal, Jaspinder Narula, Sukhwinder Singh, Abhijeet and Alka Yagnik -in short all the popular singers of the 90s.

The movie was the tale of a family of Zamindars which is headed by Rajnikanth who has a sister -Aruna Irani and three sons Anil Kapoor (double role plays two brothers) and Harish Kumar. Rekha plays the zamindar’s elder daughter-in-law who is the bhabhi-maa to her devars. And here I would like to mention that the two Anil Kapoors are not twins. Today’s song happens at the girl’s family meeting the boy’s family ritual and the older Anil Kapoor is the groom-to be. Aruna Irani the would-be atyaa (paternal aunt) starts the song as cue to the coy Bride-to-be who then begins singing and also fantasizing about her hubsand married life etc
There have been many instances when big a star/ actor accepts a role in a film because the main actor/ character is being enacted by a senior star/actor of whom the junior is a fan. Like for example, Amitabh Bachchan played Dilip Kumar’s son in Ramesh Sippy’s “Shakti”. Similarly Rekha played miniscule role in one of Dev Anand’s final movie, “Censor” and also one of Manoj Kumar’s last directorial.

Anil Kapoor did a second rung character in this film as he was sharing screen space with a senior (workwise)-Rekha. And the dance that accompanies sees Rekha and Anil Kapoor matching each other decently well. It is only recently I found out that there is just two year age gap between these two actors but one began working in 1966 (age 12) when the other might have been in school and not even given a thought to what career to pursue. That must be one of the reason why the viewer may feel that Anil Kapoor was acting with a much senior actress, she was a senior only because she was already in the entertainment business for 14 years before Anil made his debut.

The singers for this song are Kavitha Krishnamurthy and Udit Narayan.

Happy birthday to Rekha. May we keep seeing her on the silver screen.
