Hullo Atuldom

Back to writing after a gap of 3 weeks. Lovely three weeks. Spent among the hills of North- East India and South India. Must thank my nephew for insisting that I accompany them. If the Himalayas and its snow-clad peaks are a heavenly sight so are the mountain ranges of the Nilgiris in the south – the common feature being acres of tea gardens. For the second weekend outing to the Nilgiris, I hold my son and niece responsible.

Trust humans to spoil a good thing. Where there was a lot of discipline among the locals at both places; tourists have ruined Ooty as much as say Lonavla, Khandala or Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra. Thankfully Sikkim has not faced much tourist onslaught and so is much cleaner. The air in these hill stations are so pollution free one doesn’t feel like returning to pavilion and the reality of daily routine. I am sure our Sadanand ji will be nodding in agreement being an avid traveller and having visited many such pristine locations. Hope I am right?

More about my travels some other time, I will get straight to the topic of this post.

This post is to wish the lady with the dazzling smile a very happy birthday. Unbelievable that she turned 51 yesterday. The dancer who out-dances her co-star without meaning to and effortlessly at that. But she is not all song and dance only; she is great in exhibiting all emotions with her eyes, face and voice. Just like the heroines of yesteryear, specially Madhubala, with whom she used to be constantly compared. Yes yes. I am speaking of Madhuri Dixit (now Nene). Having made her debut in movies through the 1984 Rajshri Productions ‘Abodh’ and tasting success with ‘Tezaab’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Tridev’, etc. she made a place for herself among the top-ranked heroines of Bollywood. Her teaming with Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Jackie Shroff (all the reigning stars of that period) was well received by the audiences. In the later half of the 90s she also teamed successfully with the 3Khans. She was lucky to have roles written specially for her as in Prakash Jha’s ‘Mrityudand’ and MF Hussain’s ‘Gaja Gamini’.

As much as I love Madhuri and her movies with their songs and dances, there are some songs of her’s which I don’t approve of. For example, her song in the movie ‘Anjaam’ – “Athraa Baras Ki Kunwaari Kali Thi. . . Choodi Tooti Chane Ke Khet Mein” or the song from ‘Khalnayak’ – “Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai”; and then there is ‘Mera Piya Ghar Aaya O Ram ji” in ‘Yaarana’ or even “Dhak Dhak Karne Laga” from ‘Beta’. All these songs and some more of that type, which made Madhuri Dixit a dancing-star, are full of double meanings and were lapped up by the public. But there also is a greater number of Madhuri songs which are just as popular and have more ‘decent’ lyrics. For example, “Didi Tera Devar Deewana”, and her songs from ‘Devadas’, ‘Saajan’, ‘Sangeet’ etc. (no, I am not going to list her filmography here 🙂 ). The song with this post is one such song.

It is from Rajkumar Santoshi’s 2000 release ‘Pukaar’ (making a debut on the blog).  The main cast of this film is Madhuri with Anil Kapoor and Namrata Shirodkar and a supporting cast of Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Rohini Hattangadi, KD Chandran, Neeraj Vora, Danny and Prabhu Deva (just for a song). It is a well-made film based on espionage in the army and had a love triangle added for spice which gives the central characters a lot of scope to showcase their ‘sacrificing attitudes’. The songs are penned by Javed Akhtar and AR Rehman is the composer. This song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Kavita Krishnamurty. It is a stage show to celebrate some event in the army cantonment. The song shows Madhuri decently matching steps to Prabhu Deva’s vigorous dance. Anil Kapoor, Namrata and the other members of the cast are in the audience which join in towards the song’s climax.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Madhuri!

Blog Day : 3512 Post No. : 14111

How do I begin this post? I am at a loss. I have so many things running in my head. Should I say Sunday 25th March 2018, was a bad day or sad day. But it was definitely a day which began sadly for me. I normally begin my Sundays an hour later than working days, but this Sunday was different. The constant buzzing of my mobile due to incoming messages disturbed me. And one of the message was from my son, who was travelling, and had not slept in the bus. He was seeing the internet site of a news channel which carried the shocking news that the darling of the audiences SRIDEVI had passed away in Dubai of a CARDIAC Arrest. That jolted me and my first reaction was to google for confirmation. And sure enough the news had broken on the internet a few minutes back. The first person to break the news to Atulites was Satyajitji from DOWN Under. And the reactions followed through the day- here there everywhere.

There were messages being posted and reposted and forwarded among the various WhatsApp- groups all trying to find a reason for the sudden death of a supposedly perfectly healthy human being. The mystery still continues. But we have lost a “Khwaabon Ki Shehzaadi”, a style icon, an inspiration for numerous aspiring actors. A person who was passionate about her work. She was comfortable doing an Indian classical dance as well as out-of-tune Bollywood-style numbers the equivalent of which in South Indian movies are called Dappang-Kootu; though Dappang-Kootu is largely folk dance based and Sridevi was good in all of it.

On the day the news broke all the news channels spoke of her work in Tamil as well as Hindi movie and mentioned in the passing about her having worked in Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu as well. Having started at the very young age of 4 or 5 she has acted opposite all the giants of the Indian film industry of the period starting with Sivaji Ganesan and Gemini Ganesan in her first movie “Kandan Karunai” as child star in Tamil; followed by “Maa Naana Nirdoshi” in Telugu, “Kumara Sambhavam” in Malayalam, and “Apna Desh” in Hindi as Rajesh Khanna’s niece- cannot forget “Rona kabhi nahin rona chahe toot jaaye koi khilona” although her fist outing as child star in Hindi was “Rani Mera Naam” in 1972. I have also seen her in the Tamil version of “Apna Desh” “Nam Naadu” as niece to MGR. Just before she began performing adult roles we saw her as sister to Lakshmi in “Julie” in the iconic song “My heart is beating”, she was just 11 then.

From the age of 13 she graduated to doing adult roles and Kamal Haasan and Rajnikanth were her first co-actors. There was time when she was a heroine to many actors of the South Indian film industry in whose films she had acted as a child.

Her debut in Hindi was in the not-so-successful “Solva Sawan” in 1979 opposite Amol Palekar; she had also starred in the Tamil original and the Telugu remake. But after her second attempt in Hindi movies in the Jeetendra starrer “Himmatwala” in 1983. I distinctly remember that year I had been to Hyderabad to my mama’s place and there were these huge posters everywhere of this beautiful heroine amid rows of “colourful pots” in what turned out to be a song which is still popular “nainon mein sapna, sapno mein sajna, sajna pe dil aagaya”. That was also the time when Jaya Prada had made her debut in Hindi movies through “Sargam”. And the teenager that I was then, decided Sridevi was a threat to Jaya Prada, and refused to see that movie. I think the first Sridevi movie I saw of my own choice was “Inquilaab” because Amitabh Bachchan was her co-star. And then I was floored by her. Subsequently I have many of her movies and was particularly fond of her pairing with Jeetendra and Amitabh Bachchan though that was only in three movies, she was the FEMALE SUPERSTAR of her times. She also paired successfully with Anil Kapoor and Mithun Chakravarty.

—————–
I have been writing this for the last two days and still the reality has not sunk-in. I am still thinking of the day when the news broke. In the meantime, there has been news that our shehzaadi died due to “accidental drowning” but whatever be the reason she is lost to us and her numerous fans. But the people who will miss her the most will be her two young daughters and husband, immediate family and friends. They have undergone great mental stress this last few days, the time that it took them to get her mortal remains from Dubai. My thoughts are with them. They say the cremation will finally happen today. May our darling Sridevi find eternal peace.

Over the last two days, as I was talking of a star/ an actor I loved, I told my mom-in-law about all the Sridevi- Jaya Prada movies of the 80s where Sri always played a stronger character and Jaya had all the crying to do. My sister was thinking of all the famous songs of the Jeetendra- Sridevi- Jaya Prada movies which could not have been done by anyone else. Everyone must have had a song of that time which they loved but will never admit as those were songs with seemingly no-sense. But they all were successful.

A thought just went through my mind. The day the news came on TV some channels showed a scene from one of her first movies as a child. It had baby Sridevi “crying unconsolably running a short distance and collapsing on to her Knee and still crying.” Her last released movie “Mom” (2017) has her running similarly, crying uncontrolled and dropping on to her knee. Uncanny I must say!!

The song with this post is from “Lamhe”. I had originally intended that the song should accompany a post on the graceful Waheeda Rehman, but I am presenting it here on this sad occasion. There is an incident behind the shoot of this song which Yash Chopra has related. The shoot was scheduled in London in 1991. That was the time her father passed away. She left the shoot midway to be with her family during the time of grief. The schedule was that this song was to be shot and upon her return Yash Chopra offered to change the schedule or cancel it altogether. But such was Sri’s passion to her work that she was ready to do what the director asked for. Anupam Kher her co-actor in the movie adds that in between shots she used to be drowned in grief but there used to be no trace of that emotion once she was infront of the camera. She was a darling of the camera too.

Rest in Peace Dear—Om Shanti, Shanti Shanti.

Hullo to Atuldom

We have had two posts today celebrating the birth anniversary of the one and only Mohd. Rafi. And both were excellent posts. Our Avinashji has managed to remember Mahipal’s birth anniversary too. Great job!

Today also happens to be the birthdate of an actor/ star shining in Bollywood since 1984. I won’t say he didn’t struggle to find his place in Bollywood. I won’t say that being the son of a producer made things easy for him. He began by playing one the many young characters in Umesh Mehra’s “Humare Tumhare”. He assisted director Bapu who was then directing “Hum Paanch”. I am talking of Anil Kapoor. It is hard to believe he turns 61 today. I saw a recent movie of his, this morning on one satellite channel where his physique matches his young nephew- Arjun Kapoor- who was his co-actor. I seem to have been seen a lot of movies of his post 1990 when he played a mentor obsessive of his protégé- Taal. He has played a mentally retarded man who is a very understanding and supportive husband in Eeshwar, a modern city educated son of a proud village headman who gets his priorities right when he sees his father hacked to death in Viraasat. Oh, definitely he is a master of all genres when in front of the camera including comedy. I can list out all his collaborations with David Dhawan to prove my point here. But I will pick a movie called “Deewana Mastana” and the rest of the post will explain why this particular movie.

There is one other actor who had his birthday this week. He too, like Anil Kapoor, belonged to a family connected with Bollywood. His father was an actor in the forties till mid-fifties and mother was a classical singer of the Patiala Gharana and also an actress of the forties. Our actor/ star who is their son is one of Arun Kumar Ahuja and Nirmala Devi’s six children- Govinda. His birthday was on 21st and he turned 54 only!!? Should be considering he was born in 1963. He too began his journey in Bollywood in the 80s, playing second fiddle to the likes of Raj Kumar – Marte Dum Tak, Dilip Kumar- Izzatdaar; Dharamendra – Dadagiri and a few more; Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Rajnikant , Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Jeeteedra and all the top stars of that period. He played into the hearts of the audience with his dancing abilities which he had honed after seeing Mithun in Disco Dancer. I remember I was floored by the way he danced in Pahlaj Nihalani’s “Ilzaam” to the “street dancer” song. But he found his comic capabilities on teaming up with David Dhawan and then we were drowned in a sea of ‘No:1’ movies.
Though Deewana Mastana didn’t carry the ‘No:1’ tag it was still a rib-tickler. We had Anil Kapoor as Raja ganging-up with Johnny Lever as Ghafoor against Govinda as Bunnu and trying to woo the beautiful Psychiatrist Dr. Neha (Juhi Chawla). And without resorting to buffoonery these two keep the proceedings lively. All the comedy is through the dialogues. There is one particular scene where Bunnu and Raja discus all the movies that ever-had love-triangles in them and how eventually one person has to sacrifice his love but the movie had a unique ending with both the suitors losing the girl 🙂 .

Today’s song is a party number where the whole cast joins the lead three. It is written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant-Pyarelal were the composers. Kavitha Krishnamurthy, Udit Narayan and Vinod Rathod are the singers. The movie was produced by Ketan Desai.

Happy Birthday to Anil Kapoor and belated wishes to Govinda.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Only yesterday I saw a rather old episode of the TALK SHOW – back then they used to call it interview (simple)- “Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan” which Tabassum used to host. I am sure all movie/ music lovers would have seen at least one episode on Friday evenings (I think). I used to try and see it without fail. But the episode (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFFwOfs1IWw) I saw yesterday on YouTube I don’t recollect having seen in 1983. Just as well since; when I saw it yesterday it was an eye opener. It featured Anand Bakshi the lyricist.

He spoke at length on various topics, but what stuck with me was his answer to Tabassum’s question about the shelf life of songs, why do modern songs fade from public memory as soon as the movie is out of the theatres. (I have provided the link for those interested). He gave example of one the two most famous songs of the Subhash Ghai directed “Karz” (1980). Way back in 1983, when that interview happened, he didn’t expect that “meri umar ke naujawaanon —om shanti om” would remain for long in public memory, but we know otherwise. It is still very much popular so much so that Farha Khan not only used it for her movie title but also used that entire song in her movie. complete with Subhash Ghai directing Rishi Kapoor. That sequence was in Farha Khan’s movie to introduce her protagonist Om.

There is another Subhash Ghai movie of the 80s which people don’t recall that frequently, but it was a big hit back then. It was one of the three super successful movies of Anil Kapoor that year. I know it was later remade into Tamil (Oru Taayin Shabhatham by T. Rajender) and Telugu and Kannada as well. I am talking of Meri Jung (1985) which starred Girish Karnad, Nutan and Amrish Puri (making the older generation) with Anil Kapoor leading the young brigade of Khushboo (his sister) Meenakshi Seshadri, and Javed Jaffery who made his debut in this movie as Amrish Puri’s wayward son; who has Khushboo falling in love with him; which conveniently helps the two warring advocates -Anil Kapoor and Amrish Puri.

Remember once before I had wondered how multi-talented the advocates in our movies are (In this when Vinod Khanna jumped over walls to get something from Leena Chandavarkar’s room). “Meri Jung” has Anil Kapoor just swallowing some medicine which is supposed to be poison in court to prove his client Bina’s innocence. I am sure no one is allowed to touch evidences like that in court but anything is acceptable in Indian movies. Remember one bottle collecting blood directly from three donors at the same time. (which movie I know the readers will guess. 🙂 )

Since we talked of Meri Jung (1985) let us have a song from the movie today. It is a dance number by the oh-so beautiful Meenakshi Seshadri. How I wish she had not quit movies for familial life but then it was her personal choice to leave when still on top. She has left us a treasure trove of great songs to choose from whenever we think of her.

And why am I thinking of her today? Obviously, its her birthday today (16 november 2017). And what better than a dance number. We are just floored by her beauty and why not she was a Miss India. I was a fan of her’s and loved her movie selections- Jurm, Satyamev Jayate, Daamini, Ghaayal, Swati etc and don’t mind excusing he “Shahenshah” “Ganga Jumna Saraswati” etc (who would say know to sharing screen space with the Amitabh Bachchan.) Post her retirement she is settled in the US going back to her first love – classical dances. She runs a dance academy. Here is wishing her health wealth and happiness in life.

Today’s song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi-Pyare are the music composers. The song is a dream of Meenakshi and she gets to dance on Mumbai’s Madh Island on a giant PIANO among other things. People didn’t call Subash Ghai a showman just like that. 🙂

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.

One thing about life that amazes me is its unpredictability. Let me explain. See when I got the email from Sudhirji in April 2014 informing me about the approaching 10K milestone I had decided to send as many songs as possible to Atul for reaching 10000 as soon as possible. And in right earnest I sent 4 songs over a week in my (personal) “March unto 10000” mission. And I must say Atul was good to me by posting all of them instantly. Then came my unexpected tour of Delhi; and I took a break from my list of romantic songs and sent a Delhi based song. This is one incident that proves that we plan something and we end up doing something else.

Today (23 october 2014) is the festival of deepaawali. This festival is supposed to bring joy and happiness in the lives of everyone. I can certainly vouch for that. My main computer that has been hijacked by my wife for the last few days was surprisingly available to me this morning. I wake up earlier than others on the pretext of letting the dog out and teaching the daughter. The dogs were wide awake as usual but my daughter (and wife) are not (as usual). That gave me the opportunity of sitting on my main computer and try and give finishing touch to the posts for the day.

Hi all

I am discussing another great to watch Jodi today. Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit. This is on farmaish from my daughter. She feels that they did some great work together in “Beta”, “Ram Lakhan”, “Kishen Kanhaiya”, “Khel” etc. These two acted together for the first time in “Tezaab” and Anil Kapoor has said in some interview a long time back that he was so impressed by the (then) young and hard working Madhuri that he recommended her to Subhash Ghai for the then under making “Karma”. And it seems they even shot a whole song after which Ghai thought that it was not wise to waste such a lot of talent for a guest appearance song and took her on for his next “Ram Lakhan”.
