#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
———————————————————–——

Rising temperatures is normal in our country in the month of May. At this time of the year, we are used to seeing temperatures soaring high. Under normal circumstances, terms like ‘rising temperatures’, ‘global warming’ etc would have been ‘hot’ topic of media and general talk. But the term ‘Covid19’ has taken the wind out of the sail of the usual terms.

The current ‘lockdown’ conditions have given respite to many people from going out for work in this ‘peak summer’. However even at home now people are feeling the ‘heat’ and currently my base-station Vadodara is recording 42 to 44 degC temperature during these days. Since work at my workplace has been resumed since 21st April, I can enjoy the ‘summer’ as I did in the past, an experience that I had “missed” for the last three years thanks to my stint at Kenya for three years.

The pandemic has forced people to be more worried about the other temperature i.e. the ‘body temperature’ or ‘fever’ as we generally talk about instead of worryng about atmospheric temperature. The current situation has also brought ‘Infrared thermometers’ (‘temperature guns’:) ) to daily usage and checking of body temperature has become customary for all venturing out of home for work. For me it is checked at our company bus stop then after arrival at workplace and before leaving the workplace. (Nose masks, Sanitisers and Handwash have also become a part of life now.)

Coming back to the ‘fever’ or ‘bukhaar’ it so happened recently that family members of one of our family friends were admitted to hospital in anticipation of ‘Covid19’. Since one of the family members was working in health department it was easy for ‘Corona’ to attack this person first. Because of to this one-person other family members also got infected and one by one they were admitted to hospital (thank god all of them have recovered and they are now back to home fully ‘fit’ after getting treatment). Since my daughter has her friend from this family, I was enquiring with her everyday about their health, after returning from office. One day she told me that her friend’s father is having ‘fever’ and the temperature was around 100. I do not know from where, but I immediately said “well, no need to worry’ the danger level is more or ‘104’ I think?”

Since she has been a ‘science student’ (more a ‘doodle artist’ now) I asked, “Is there anything that 104-degree fever is dangerous”. Guessing where I was heading, she immediately asked me is there any song on that? Or a movie I had in mind? “‘jinko filmon aur gaanon ka bukhaar ho, unke dimaag mein to hameshaa gaane hi chalte rahenge na?” (and now my family members have taken it as ‘normal’ for me 🙂 )

Yes, I know it there was a song something like … “ek sau chaar bukhaar!!!”

Though I said it but even I had not visited or listened to this song for many years or I should say almost thirty-six or thirty-five years now. I only remember the lines “ek sau chaar bukhaar, ek sau chaar bukhaar”.  I remember there was this song which I had listened to, and it was a part of all ‘disco’ compilations then in 1982-1983 or 1983-1984. But I had forgotten it after that, but the current ‘pandemic’ reminded me of this song. We are going to listen and enjoy this song today. Fortunately, the audio and a partial video link of this song was available when I looked for it.

I was not aware about any other details of this song like the movie, singers etc. I was only remembering its line “ek sau chaar bukhaar”. From the audio I got to the movie name this song was from and from the movie name I found the movie details in HFGK Vol-VI. The movie name is ‘Sugandh’ – must be an obscure movie, I think.

“Sugandh-1982” was directed by Ravikant Nagaich for Gopi Enterprises, Madras. He was also the producer of this movie and cinematographer too. This movie has Shakti Kapoor, Aarti Gupta, Anand Balraj, Paintal, Bindu, Birbal, Sunil Thapa, Gulshan Grover, Leena Das, Heena Kausar, Goga Kapoor, Prem Bedi, Mukri, Kasuhik Basin, Poornima, Amrish Puri and others. HFGK mentions that this movie was based on a novel ‘Khilaadi’ by writer Rajvansh. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.07.1982 with restricted viewing i.e. with ‘A’ Certificate.

As per information of this movie provided in HFGK, it has total seven songs in it. Lyricist Ramesh Pant wrote four songs and lyricist Farooque Kaiser wrote three songs for this movie. This song is written by Ramesh Pant, The seven songs include one song in two parts. Music of this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri and Anil, Arun and Bansari Lahiri were his assistants in music of this movie. Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Shubha Dhote and SP Balasubramanian had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

1982-83 was the year of matriculation for me, and I remember that after finishing the exams we were relaxed and that time the we were regularly listening song on radio and around. And I remember that the songs of ‘Nikaah’ and ‘Disco Dancer’ were heard very frequently then and so were there many disco numbers, as ‘Disco’ wave and ‘Bappi Da’ era had already ‘taken-off’. Going by the date this movie was passed by Censor Board and guessing its releasing time I think the songs of this movie were over shadowed by the songs of the movie ‘Disco Dancer’ (1982) which came in December that year (passed by Censor Board on 10.12.1982).

On this auspicious 4321st day for the blog, let us get introduced to movie number 4300 on the blog with this song 🙂

This song is sung by Kishore Kumar with his characteristic style and gusto. Enjoy how every time he sings ‘disco o o o’ and ‘ek sau chaar bukhaar’ in this song. On screen Anand Balraj is lip syncing in Kishore Kumar’s voice and accompanying him performance is Leena Das while we can see Mukri, Paintal, Gulshan Grover and others present in picturization of this song.

Enjoy this foot tapping disco song. . .

[Ed Note: With this song, ‘Sugandh’ (1982) becomes the 4300th movie whose songs are represented in the blog.]

Genesis (a.k.a The Making of ASAD Gangout Bangalore 5 OCTOBER 14)
——————————————————————

Looking back, I think we can trace the genesis of the Gangout to a recent spurt in Atulite enthusiasm, itself triggered by the 10,000th song on Atul’s blog.
