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

Welcome all to this post which marks the fifth post on the blog today. When I woke up in the morning today and saw the mail notification of the first post on the blog today, I started guessing about where it was heading for ecause I had sent a couple of posts for the day as well to our editors yesterday.

When I was on my morning walk I just thought about the order in which the posts would appear. When I reached home and checked the mails it was done exactly how I had hoped it should be.

There was a post each from the decades of 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, so I just thought why not a one from 1980s to finish the today’s tally of posts. (And that will also give an ‘auspicious’ figure of ‘five’ posts in the day today). 🙂

There already was a reason for a song from the 1980s. I was longing for the few weeks to share a song from this ‘era’ to mark a ‘special occasion’ with a song from a ‘special movie’. The matter was already in the mind and all I had to do was to put it in black and white. So I noted the song which I had in mind planned. Before going for the preparation of the detailed post I thought about browsing the blog and jtally the figures once.

Here, there was a ‘twist’ in store and what I noticed was that the blog was not ready for the special occasion as of now and some tweaking was called for. So in the meanwhile, I have picked another song.

Regulars on the blog must be aware that the ‘year’ ‘1983’ was an ‘important’ year for me as I passed out my 10th standard exams that year and then there are many other things from this year including ‘movies’ and ‘nostalgia’ and overall above the ‘Prudential Cricket World Cup’ win of India.

We will directly come to the movies now. So in the year 1983 the total number of ‘Hindi’ movies released is ‘130’. Out of these ‘130’ movies ‘46’ movies have already been represented on the blog. (The detailed excel sheet is being hold for the ‘special post’ later.)

The ‘annual hits of Binaca Geetmala’ included the songs from today’s movie whereas the songs of that movie which I was supposed to present ‘had not found a place’ in that list may be because of ‘recordon ki bikri, aur shrotaa sanghon ki raay’ …

Nevertheless, I like songs of today’s movie just as well. I was longing to share this song which is being presented today, though this particular song of this movie was not there in the ‘annual hit list’. (Our dear Prakash ji had also sent couple of other songs from this movie earlier).

Here is the movie …

“Ek Jaan Hain Hum-1983” was directed by Rajeev Mehra for ‘Eagle Films’.

It had Shammi Kapoor, Rajeev Kapoor, Divya Rana, Pran, Tanuja, Kiran Vairale Rakesh Bedi, Monty, Gulshan Grover and others.

This movie has six songs written by Anjaan and music for this movie was composed by Anu Malik.

People like me who watched this movie expected Rajeev Kapoor to be the new generations Shammi Kapoor, and I think Rajeev Kapoor also tried to do that. But it did not happen somehow.

While watching the movie and listening the songs of this movie I feel that the ‘crew’ of this movie also tried to do ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ type music and songs.

I leave it to readers for their comments as well.

Today’s song is sung by Shabbir Kumar and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is Rajeev Kapoor and Divya Rana.

Lyrics are by Anjaan and music is composed by Anu Malik.

With today’s song this movie ‘Ek Jaan Hain Hum-1983’ makes its debut on the blog today…

Enjoy 🙂

Hullo Atuldom

“Awaargi” (1990) was directed by Mahesh Bhatt, story-screenplay-dialogues were written by Suraj Sanim, and produced by P. Raghunath (who happened to be Hema Malini’s uncle). The movie opens with a message ‘Thanking Hema Malini’. Anu Malik was the music composer with Anand Bakshi writing most of its songs. Playback singers used were Asha Bhonsle, Mohd. Aziz, Lata Mangeshkar, Anuradha Paudwal; the Ghazal Maestro Ghulam Ali sang the melodious “Chamkate Chaand Ko Toota Hua Taara Banaa Dalaa” which was was written by Asad Bhopali. (Recently I saw this, sung by a youngster, on satellite TV, and I was hooked on to it and the songs of the movie itself).

Meenakshi Sheshadri-Anil Kapoor-Govinda formed the main lead and Anupam Kher headed the supporting cast of Satish Kaushik, Paresh Rawal, Avtar Gill, Mahesh Anand, Deepak Qazir, Ghanshyam etc. This was a movie that was long in the making and finally released 4 years after it was announced. This was one of the two movies that had Anil Kapoor & Govinda in the lead; the other being “Deewaana Mastaana”; both were love triangles but completely different from each other.
“Awaargi” was the story of Azaad (Anil Kapoor) rescuing a girl – Meena (Meenakshi)- from a brothel and how he helps her attain her dream of becoming a singer. For this he introduces her to a hotel owner (Deepak Qazir). Here she is spotted by a stage singer -Dhiren (Govinda)- who offers her a place in his troop and thus begins her journey to reach her dreams. Then, of course, there is the usual of Azaad falling in love with her and not being able to express it when he feels that Meena is in love with Dhiren. In between the confusion among the lovers there is also the ‘tadka’ of some gang lords – Paresh Rawal & Anupam Kher- wanting Meena back in the brothel.

I have seen this movie a decade back and don’t recall how it ends; but I am sure one of the guys would have given up his love for the lady; or (just maybe) the lady would have decided who she wanted in her life. This was a movie where Govinda and Anil Kapoor played serious characters with Anil Kapoor’s Azaad being the ‘Tapori’ that he was adept at playing back then.

Today we are having the song with which Meena makes her stage debut with Dhirens’ help. It is in the voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Aziz. It shows the two dancers in tandem to movements set by Saroj Khan.

With this post we are wishing the actor/dancer/singer/comedian Govinda who also tried his hand at being a Parliamentarian for a term as an elected member of the Lower House (Lok Sabha). He has taken a step closer to being 60.

Hullo Atuldom

“Sohni Mahiwal” (1984) was a Indo-Russian historical romance drama film based on the story of ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ – one of the four popular tragic love stories of Punjab & Sindh region; the other three being Sassi Punnun, Mirza Sahiban, & Heer Ranjha; I am sure there may be more such stories in folklore.
“Sohni Mahiwal” has been made by the Hindi film industry a few times- songs from the 1946 and 1958 versions are there on the blog. I have read somewhere that in 1977 BR Films had announced a Punjabi version too with Rajesh Khanna and Neetu Singh in the lead, it never reached completion.

The 1984 version was produced by F.C. Mehra and directed by Umesh Mehra & Latif Faiziyev. This was the second collaboration of the Mehras with the Russians after “Alibaba aur 40 Chor” (1980). At the insistence of the Russians a special role was created for Zeenat Aman- they had liked her in ‘Alibaba aur 40 Chor’. This was one of Anu Malik’s (the music director for this film) earliest major film.
Sunny Deol and Poonam Dhillon played the star-crossed lovers- this was Sunny Deol’s second film, he was shooting for this when ‘Betaab’ released. Pran, Tanuja, Gulshan Grover, Rakesh Bedi, alongwith a few Russian actors formed the rest of the cast. Shammi Kapoor (a friend of F.C. Mehra) had a tiny guest role and Zeenat Aman was in a supporting role of Zarina the Bandit.

“Hare Rama Hare Krishna” released in January of 1971 i.e. 51 years ago. Pre-production and related activities may have started atleast a year or two earlier i.e. sometime in 1969 or 1970- 52/53 years back. That means our today’s birthday girl has been around in the industry for close to 53 years- unbelievable. Prior to that she was a model who went on to participate in the Femina Miss India contest and on winning there represented India at the Miss Asia- Pacific beauty pageant and winning that title too.

‘Zeenat Aman’ a name that is associated with roles that were different from what the heroines of that era played. It is not as if she didn’t play roles of Saree-clad ladies but most of them were not the wimpy-weepy types. She was most sought after for roles of ladies who were more modern in their looks and thinking. She was a trend setter who didn’t shy away from flaunting her well looked after appearance.
Today when she is turning an year older we shall see her in this dance number from “Sohni Mahiwal” singing an Anand Bakshi written song which was play-backed by Asha Bhonsle. This dance is to help Mahiwal reach the marriage venue of Sohni’s wedding and help the lovers unite. That is Zarina the bandit has a heart of gold.

Wishing Zeenie Baby (as she used to be called fondly) all health and cheer.

Hullo Atuldom

This is a multi-birthday post.

First and foremost we shall be wishing our Sudhirji- The Dillwala Dilliwala; Atulji’s trusted lieutenant on his birthday. He has been a huge help to Atulji and that has ensured that the blog has had no dot days since 25th December 2019. Let us all wish this Atulite with lots of fun and music.

“Main Hoon Na” (2004) was a Farah Khan directed film which was produced by Gauri Khan’s ‘Red Chillies Entertainment’ & Ratan Jain’s ‘Venus Records and Tapes’. Shahrukh Khan, Sushmita Sen, Zayed Khan, Amrita Rao, Bindu, Boman Irani, Satish Shah, Kirron Kher and Suniel Shetty were the main cast with Naseeruddin Shah and Kabir Bedi in special and guest appearances respectively. The songs were penned by Javed Akhtar and composed by Anu Malik. Shreya Ghoshal, Sonu Nigam, Abhijeet, KK, Vasundhara Das, Alka Yagnik, Sunidhi Chauhan and the Sabri brothers- Hashim & Aftab are the playback singers used in the movie.

With this song SRK (Shahrukh Khan) is shown trying to mingle among the young college crowd. He is shown as the odd man out or a student who is trying to restart his studies which he had to give up owing to family responsibilities etc. The younger crowd initially don’t want to associate with him but eventually they become a clique and then the story proceeds towards a climax where the students are held hostage, SRK with the help of his army forces helps rescue the young brigade, bring/ eliminate Suniel Shetty & group etc. before the happy ending. That means the movie was an all-out masala film.

The song is in the voices of Shreya Ghoshal and Sonu Nigam. There is a sad version too in Abhijeet’s voice.

2nd November also happens to be SRK and Anu Malik’s birthday. Here is wishing them all the best for the future and hoping that they continue go entertain us.

This words of this song may have been what Sudhirji told Atulji when he started sharing the responsibility of keeping the blog from having DOT days. 🙂

Welcome all to this post that I am presenting here to wish ‘happy birthday’ today to a very special person Maqsood Mehmood Ali better known to us as Lucky Ali.

He was born on 19th September 1958 and that means he turned sixty-four today.

He sung his first Hindi movie song in the 1978 movie ‘Ek Baap Chhe Bete’ which was produced and directed by his father – the famous comedian – Mehmood.

He must have been 18-19 years old at that time.

Later in the 1990s he emerged as a ‘significant figure’ in the world of ‘Indipop’ with several singles and albums. I was posted at Phulpur-Allahabad then. I had also bought his albums and liked the numbers in it very much.

Lucky Ali has also done acting in few movies e.g., ‘Kaante’, ‘Sur’ etc.

I would also like to reproduce here what ‘Wikipedia’ has mentioned about him

“Best known for his music, singing, and acting, Ali has also bred horses, worked on an oil rig off the coast of Pondicherry in South India, cleaned and sold carpets and is a farmer with a strong opinion on organic methods in farming.”

Lucky Ali has a long musical journey, and we will surely be discovering more about him in future posts on the blog.

Recently I watched one of his videos on YouTube produced by Curly Tales. In this video he was shown in his farmhouse and many other locations in Bengaluru especially the many famous food spots and just in his very natural ‘avtaar’. I liked this video very much and I simply loved it.

He has carved a special niche for himself in the heart of music lovers, and we all love him very much.

Lucky Ali has troubled relationship with his father Mehmood in his childhood. Mehmood was a very busy actor then and couldn’t give much of his time for his family. Lucky Ali had to live in Board School in Mussoorie for his studies.

Later he became addicted of ‘marijuana’ too. His fight with ‘Marijuana’ led Mehmood to present this issue in this movie ‘Dushman Duniya Ka’ where is his youngest son Manzoor Ali played the lead role.

As mentioned in ‘Wikipedia’ Lucky Ali didn’t like the story of this movie as it lacked hope, since the actor or the drug-addicted young son kills his mother in the movie.

Today on his birthday I am presenting a song from the 1996 movie ‘Dushman Duniya Ka’.

Lucky Ali sang a song in this movie which was lip-synced on screen by his younger brother Manzoor Ali. The song is about ‘nashaa’.

‘Dushman Duniya Ka-1996’ was directed by Mehmood. It was produced by Ashok Mishra, Babubhai and Masoom Ali. It had Jeetendra, Sumalatha, Manzoor Ali (debut movie), and Mehmood. This movie also introduced Laila, Master Abhishek, and Nasir. They were supported by Ali Asgar, Wahid, Kailash, Punjabi, Anil Mehta, Fardeen, Gopal, Meghani, Neeraj Mishra, Salman, Raju Malhotra, Zaid Khan, Vishwanath, Krishna Bansal, Sweety Pareeikh, Baby Somaiya and Shweta.

Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan had a special appearance in this movie. Ashok Kumar, Farida Jalal, Anjana Mumtaz, Rita Bhaduri, Raza Murad, Manmauji, Birbal, Liliput, Junior Mehmood and Johny Level had a friendly appearance in this movie.

This movie was written by Late Aziz Quaisi and Editing of this movie was done by S. Heera.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.08.1996 with ‘restricted viewing certificate’ (A).

This movie had seven songs of which the lyrics were written by Ravindra Jain. Music was composed by Anu Malik.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and wish a ‘very happy birthday’ to Lucky Ali and thank him for all the musical memories he has given to us and his songs (he is also a songwriter) which have a therapeutic effect on our mind and souls.

Hullo Atuldom

‘Pehli Baar’ (First Time) is a program that is aired on a channel of the DTH service that I am subscribed to. It gives background about how some celebrities met or got together for the first time ever. Of course the incidents, and content in that program is possibly stuff that many of us have read over the years over-and-over again, and also in all the Filmfares, Screen (the magazines of yesteryear), Star & Style, Stardust, Cine Blitz etc. that were available in all the circulating libraries of those times. Stories like how Nargis had batter in her hand when she opened the door for Raj Kapoor, how Balraj Sahni saw Johnny Walker mimicking actors as he sold tickets in Mumbai’s BEST buses etc.

When I write a post I try to bring songs from the first movie of the celebrity who I am focusing on. The ‘Pehli Baar’ of the artistes who have made a place in our hearts and minds. The Pehli Baar that I mentioned star-kid (now a grown-up man) Abhishek Bachchan in a post, must have been this song – “Happy Days Are Here Again“.

But that was not his debut in Hindi films, his debut was in JP Dutta’s ‘Refugee’ in 2000. The movie was also the first released film for Kareena Kapoor. Jackie Shroff, Suneil Shetty, Reena Roy, Anupam Kher, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Shadaab Khan (Amjad Khan’s son), Ashish Vidyarthi and a whole set of known faces forming the supporting cast were part of the film which was about a Muslim family from Bihar that had migrated to East Pakistan post the partition of India in 1947. But after the formation of Bangladesh in 1971 this family along with several such families are forced to relocate to West Pakistan. For this they choose the Dhaka-Guwahati-Delhi-Ajmer route. From Ajmer they go to Haji Peer in Pakistan through Bhuj in Rann of Kutch. In this endeavor they are assisted by an agent who is simply addressed as Refugee (Abhishek Bachchan). He normally is very impersonal when escorting people across the border and is unaware that he is assisting terrorists too. But he begins to like the daughter (Kareena Kapoor) of this family and keeps visiting her even after the family is settled into Pakistan. The rest of the movie talks about the hardships the lovers face due to involvement of the border security forces, terrorism in the region etc. And as in all JP Dutta movies there is exchange of fire, across the border, between the Indian and Pakistani forces and a thought provoking question at the close of the film when Kareena Kapoor delivers her baby in the no-man’s land area between the two nations.

‘Refugee’ was an average grosser at the box-office and both the debutantes got positive reviews too. Following its release Abhishek was seen in ‘Tera Jadoo Chal gaya’ and ‘Dhai Akshar Prem Ke’ in the same year. ‘Dhai Akshar Prem Ke’ was the Pehli Baar that we saw Aishwarya Rai with AB Jr. (as he is popular in the social media world). There were other 10-12 movies of AB Jr’s that released between 2000 and 2004, all of which were not-so-commercially successful. But most of them had the critics appreciating Abhishek. ‘Yuva’ (2004) by Mani Ratnam is a point in case. ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ (2005) and ‘Dhoom’ (2004 ) were his biggest successes in that period. He has been trolled (a term that is in vogue in this age and times) for being his parents’ son and wife’s husband for the past few years. But he is a person who has never responded to any of the negatives that are being thrown at him and has been quietly working with a movie of his releasing every year.

Let me clear my stand here:- I am his parents’ fan not his. But I really like his work and the sincerity with which he dances and emotes. I don’t think there is any harm in appreciating good work and Abhishek does have some good movies in his filmography. I have seen him switch between atrocious comedy and absolute serious scenes with ease in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Bol Bachchan’ (2012) and ‘Zameen’ (2003). He is definitely his parents’ son (and I am not mentioning it in a negative way here). He has been around for 22 years and nobody will invest money on a flop actor if he was not going to give good returns.

So let us wish him well on his birthday today.

I have a whole set of possible songs to go with this post, but I shall stick to AB Jr’s first screen appearance. ‘Refugee’ had six songs of which the following two are on the blog – “Aisa Lagta Hai Jo Na Hua Hone Ko Hai” and “Raat Ki Hathlei Par Chaand Jagmagaata Hai“.

The first song appeared almost 10 years ago. Here is the next. It is sung by Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik, written by Javed Akhtar and Anu Malik is the music director. The song shows the young lovers building their future home.

Hullo Atuldom

This post is courtesy my youngest sister. We were on this telephonic chat and she was asking me about my new hobby/addiction and how it is coming by. In the conversation she mentioned about the how she appreciated Dilip Kumar in the song”Nain Lad Jaihe To Manwaa Maa Kasak Hoibe Kari” – his dancing to be more exact. She spoke about how the dance was almost continuous like a single shot song. And my reply to her was that the song from “Jewel Thief”Hothon  Mein Aisi Baat Main Dabaa Ke Chali Aayi” is an ideal example of a song in a single-shot and how Vyjayanthimala has danced and cameras were strategically placed to catch every movement and moment. To this my sister replied that being a trained classical dancer it would not have been so difficult for Vyjayanthimala but see Dilip Kumar dance in ‘Ganga Jamna’.

Now the Dilip Kumar dance I have been seeing from time immemorial and it is one of the songs on my personal favorites list. But after speaking to my sister, I saw the song again just before I started this post. Even if it is not a single shot-song, the choreography makes it seem so. There is a flow in the movements and actions from one frame to the other and the end result is one amazing continuous dance-song.

What the morning conversation did was it reminded me of another song that is nearly like the Dilip Kumar song viz. the choreography makes it feel that the artists have danced seamlessly, without any cuts between shots. This is the handiwork of Farah Khan. It is from the 2004 released ‘Main Hoon Na’ that is produced by Gauri Khan (Red Chillies Entertainment) and Ratan Jain (Venus Records and Tapes) and directed by Farah khan. It has a small star cast consisting of Naseeruddin Shah (special appearance), Kabir Bedi (special appearance), Suniel Shetty (in a negative role), Satish Shah, Kiron Kher, Boman Irani (forgetful principal), and Sushmita Sen, Amrita Rao, Sharukh Khan and Zayed Khan. Plus there are Rakhi Sawant, Tabu and Sajid Khan (Farah’s brother) in blink and miss roles.

The songs are written by Javed Akhtar and Anu Malik is the music director. It was nominated for a few awards in that year and won the Filmfare Award for best music. Shreya Ghoshal, Sonu Nigam, Abhijeet, KK, Vasundhara Das, Alka Yagnik, Sunidhi Chauhan and the Sabri Brothers – Hashim and Aftab, are the voices that have sung in this film. Even Anu Malik sang a song in the film. Today’s song is in the voices of KK and Vasundhara Das.

We shall have this song today to wish Farah Khan on turning a year older. She had made her debut in films as dance director in 1992 with ‘Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar’ with the brilliantly picturised “Pehla Nasha Pehla Khumar” which had Aamir Khan prancing on the slopes of the Nilgiris in Ooty. She has since choreographed dance routines for about a 100 songs in 80 movies. She turned director with ‘Main Hoon Na’ and producer with ‘Joker’ (in 2012) which was directed by her husband Shirish Kunder. She has been in front of the camera in films right from 1995 as a person among the crowd etc. and she had a formal full length role in ‘Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi’ (2012) where she was romantic lead pair with Boman Irani and her aunt Daisy Irani played her to-be mother-in-law. Of course she has made it a practice to get her whole crew in front of the camera, along with the end-titles, in all the films that she has directed.

A very Happy Birthday to this multi-talented personality who comes from a family of artists who have been in Bollywood since the late ’50s – her maternal aunts are Honey and Daisy Irani, her father Kamran Khan was a stuntman-turned-filmmaker, Javed Akhtar is her maternal aunt’s ex-husband, so that makes Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar (filmmakers) her cousins.

Blog Day :

This day that year 50 years ago.

4 dec 1971

We are into 2021. 1971 was exactly 50 years ago. How many of us are aware that the calenders of the two years are identical ! The calender of 1971 can be used in 2021 as well !

It was on the midnight on 3/4 december 2021 that Mrs Indira Gandhi, then Indian prime minister addressed the Indian public on radio. It was a national emergency that is why this address to the nation was at that unearthly hour. At around 5:30 PM, Pakistan Air Force had launched a pre emptive attack on Indian air force bases located on the west. They bombed 12 air bases in not one or two waves, but in three waves throughout the evening and night.

Mrs Gandhi had addressed the nation to inform Indians that Pakistan had attacked India and so India now had to face the aggression.

This address to the nation was made first in English and then in Hindi. It is available on youtube.

The full address was

I speak to you at a moment of grave peril to our country and our people. Some hours ago, soon after 5:30 P.M. on Dec. 3, Pakistan launched full scale war against us.

The Pakistan Air Force suddenly struck at our airfields in Amritsar, Pathankot, Srinagar, Avantipur, Utterlai, Jodhpur, Ambala and Agra.

Their ground forces are shelling our defense positions in Sulemankhi, Khemkaran, Poonch and other sectors.

Since last March we have borne the heaviest of burdens and withstood the greatest of pressure and a tremendous effort to urge the world to help in bringing about peaceful solution, in preventing annihilation of an entire people whose only crime was to vote democratically.

But the world ignored the basic causes and concerned itself only with certain repercussions.

The situation was bound to deteriorate, and the courageous band of freedom fighters have been staking their all in defense of the values for which we also have struggled and which are basic to our way of life.

Today, the war in Bangla Desh has become a war on India, and this imposes upon me, my Government and the people of India an awesome responsibility. We have no other option but to put our country on a war footing. Our brave officers and jawans are at their posts, mobilized for the defense of the country. Emergency has been declared for the whole of India. Every necessary step is being taken, and we are prepared for any eventualities.

I have no doubt that it is the united will of our people that this wanton and unprovoked aggression of Pakistan should be decisively and finally repelled. In this resolve, the Government is assured of the full and unflinching support of all political parties and every Indian citizen.

We must be prepared for a long period of hardship and sacrifice. We are a peaceloving people, but we know that peace cannot last if we do not guard our freedom, our democracy and our way of life. So today we fight, not merely for territorial integrity, but for the basic ideals which have given strength to this country, and in this alone we can progress to a better future. Aggression must be met and the people of India will meet it with fortitude and determination, with discipline and the utmost unity.

Pakistan think tank had drawn inspiration from Israel’s strategy during 1967 Israel-Arab 6 days war when Israel Air Force, in “operation Focus” had destroyed all air bases of their enemy nations (Egypt, Syria and Jordan) and rendered their airbases and aircrafts useless in a pre emptive air raid. In all, 450 aircrafts were destroyed. 18 Egyptian airfields were destroyed in a matter of hours on 5 june 1967.

Pakistani operation drew inspiration from Israel’s “operation Focus”. Pakistani operation was code named “Operation Chenghiz Khan” and it was launched at 5:30 PM IST on 3 december 1971, which, like in 2021 was a friday.

Pakistan, unlike Israel, failed to inflict any serious damage, despite attacking as many as 12 air force bases, that too in three waves. Unlike Egypt, Syria and Jordan, whose Air forces were rendered useless, Indian Air Force were able to launch its counterattack almost immediately.

As Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi prepared to addressed the nation on radio shortly after midnight informing about the Pakistani attack, the Indian Air Force had already struck back. By 21:00hrs, the Canberras of the No.35 Squadron and No.106 Squadron, as well as No.5 and No.16 squadron were armed and ready for their foray deep into Pakistan. These flew against eight Western Pakistani airbases: Murid, Mianwali, Sargodha, Chandhar, Risalewala, Rafiqui, and Masroor. In total, 23 combat sorties were launched that night, inflicting heavy damage to Sargodha and Masroor airbases. The PAF units stationed on these airfields had to operate from taxiways for the following two days.

Through the night the Indian Air Force also struck the main East Pakistani airfields of Tejgaon, and later Kurmitola. At the same time, the Indian Air Force was deploying additional aircraft to its forward airfields for the strikes that were to follow the next morning. Within days, India was able to achieve air superiority.

So, unlike the result of “Operation Focus” for Israel, “Operation Chengiz Khan” proved counterproductive for Pakistan. Of its stated objectives, the PAF was unable to neutralize the Indian Air Force in the west, which on its part had dispersed its aircraft in hardened aircraft shelters, suffering only minor damage to a few aircraft.

Newsweek magazine (1971) described the attack as :

Trying to catch the Indian Air Force napping, Yahya Khan, launched a Pakistani version of Israel’s 1967 air blitz in hopes that one rapid attack would cripple India’s far superior air power. But India was alert, Pakistani pilots were inept, and Yahya’s strategy of scattering his thin air force over a dozen air fields was a bust!

When Indian retaliation came, it was not just from air force, but from navy and army as well. It is something that the Pakistani arm chair generals may not have anticipated while living in delusion and planning “Operation Chenghiz Khan”.

It was not Indian Air Force, but Indian Navy that hit Pakistan where it hurt them the most.

The Port of Karachi housed the headquarters of the Pakistan Navy and almost its entire fleet was based in Karachi Harbour. Since Karachi was also the hub of Pakistan’s maritime trade, a blockade would be disastrous for Pakistan’s economy. The security of Karachi Harbour was predominant to the Pakistani High Command and it was heavily defended against any air or naval strikes. The port’s airspace was secured by the strike aircraft based at airfields in the area.

On 4 December, Karachi Strike Group was formed by Indian navy. It consisted of the three Vidyut-class missile boats: INS Nipat, INS Nirghat and INS Veer, each armed with four Soviet made SS-N-2B Styx surface-to-surface missiles with a range of 40 nautical miles (74 km), two Arnala-class anti-submarine corvettes: INS Kiltan and INS Katchall, and a fleet tanker, INS Poshak. The group was under the command of Commander Babru Bhan Yadav, the commanding officer of the 25th Missile Boat Squadron.

As planned, on 4 December, the strike group reached 250 nautical miles (460 km) south off the coast of Karachi, and maintained its position during the day, outside the surveillance range of the Pakistan Air Force. As Pakistani aircraft did not possess night-bombing capabilities, it was planned that the attack would take place between dusk and dawn. At 10.30 pm Pakistan Standard Time , the Indian task group moved 180 nautical miles (330 km ) from its position towards the south of Karachi. Soon Pakistani targets, identified as warships, were detected 70 nmi (130 km) to the northwest and northeast of the Indian warships.

INS Nirghat drove forward in a northwesterly direction and fired its first Styx missile at PNS Khaibar, a Pakistani Battle-class destroyer. Khaibar, assuming it was a missile from Indian aircraft, engaged its anti-aircraft systems. The missile hit the right side of the ship, exploding below the galley in the electrician’s mess deck at 10.45 pm . This led to an explosion in the first boiler room. Subsequently, the ship lost propulsion, and was flooded with smoke. An emergency signal that read: “Enemy aircraft attacked in position 020 FF 20. No. 1 boiler hit. Ship stopped”, was sent to Pakistan Naval Headquarters (PNHQ). Due to the chaos created by the explosion, the signal contained the wrong coordinates of the ship’s position. This delayed rescue teams from reaching its location. Observing that the ship was still afloat, Nirghat fired its second missile hitting Khaibar in the second boiler room on the ship’s starboard side, eventually sinking the ship and killing 222 sailors.

After verifying two targets in the area northwest of Karachi, at 11.00 pm (PKT), INS Nipat fired two Styx missiles – one each at cargo vessel MV Venus Challenger(Coming from Saigon and carrying American arms and ammunition for Pakistan army) and its escort PNS Shah Jahan, a C-class destroyer. Venus Challenger, carrying ammunition for the Pakistani forces, exploded immediately after the missile hit, and eventually sank 23 nmi (43 km) south of Karachi. The other missile targeted Shah Jahan and damaged the ship very badly. At 11.20 pm (PKT), PNS Muhafiz, an Adjutant-class minesweeper, was targeted by INS Veer. A missile was fired and Muhafiz was struck on the left side, behind the bridge. It sank immediately before it could send a signal to the PNHQ, killing 33 sailors.

Meanwhile, INS Nipat continued towards Karachi and targeted the Kemari oil storage tanks, placing itself 14 nmi (26 km) south of the Karachi harbour. Two missiles were launched; one misfired, but the other hit the oil tanks, which burned and were destroyed completely, causing a Pakistani fuel shortage. The task force returned to the nearest Indian ports.

Soon the PNHQ deployed rescue teams on patrol vessels to recover the survivors of Khaibar. As Muhafiz sank before it could transmit a distress call, the Pakistanis only learned of its fate from its few survivors who were recovered when a patrol vessel steered towards the ship’s burning flotsam.

The operation was carried for 90 minutes, which resulted in the firing of six missiles by Indian Navy that destroyed four enemy vessels. This day saw the first use of anti-ship missiles in combat in the region.

Pakistan lost a minesweeper, a destroyer, a cargo vessel carrying ammunition, and fuel storage tanks in Karachi. Another destroyer was also badly damaged and eventually scrapped.

In retaliation, Pakistan air force launched an attack on Okha Port. Indians had anticipated this attack and so they had removed all naval ships from Okha. PAF ended up damaging fuelling facilities for missile boats, an ammunition dump, and the missile boats’ jetty.

These damages delayed the next attack of Indian navy by three days. The next attack on Karachi port was launched three days later. This operation was code named “Operation Python”.

Though the Indian Navy had strategic victory with Operation Trident, its main target, the oil storage facilities in Karachi were still operational as only one of the two missiles fired had hit them. This failure was later assessed as the result of confusion created between the commanding officers of the three missile boats. Furthermore, the Indians mistook tracer fire from the coastal artillery of Karachi as originating from Pakistani aircraft and retreated hurriedly before they could properly target the tanks.

On the night of 8/9 December 1971, at 10:00 pm Pakistan Standard Time (PKT), in rough seas, a small strike group consisting of the missile boat INS Vinash, equipped with four Styx missiles, and two multipurpose frigates, INS Talwar and INS Trishul, approached Manora, a peninsula south of the Port of Karachi. During their voyage, a Pakistani patrol vessel was encountered and sunk. The Indian Navy’s official historian, Vice Admiral Hiranandani in his book Transition to Triumph, mentioned that while the group approached Karachi, Trishul’s electronic surveillance revealed that the radar there had stopped rotating and was directed straight at the group, confirming that it had been detected.

Around 11.00 pm (PKT), the group detected a batch of ships at a distance of 12 nmi (22 km). Vinash immediately fired all four of its missiles, the first of which struck the fuel tanks at the Kemari Oil Farm causing a heavy explosion. Another missile hit and sank the Panamanian fuel tanker SS Gulf Star. The third and fourth missiles hit the Pakistani Navy fleet tanker PNS Dacca and the British merchant vessel SS Harmattan. Dacca was damaged beyond repair, while Harmattan sank. As Vinash had now expended all of its missiles, the group immediately withdrew to the nearest Indian port.

Between Operations Trident and Python, and the Indian Air Force attacks on Karachi’s fuel and ammunition depots, more than fifty percent of the total fuel requirement of the Karachi zone was reported to have been destroyed. The result was a crippling economic blow to Pakistan. The damage was estimated to be worth $3 billion, with most of the oil reserves and ammunition warehouses and workshops destroyed. The Pakistan Air Force was also affected by the loss of fuel.

The Pakistani High Command ordered ships to reduce their ammunition dumps so as to reduce the explosion damage if hit. The ships were also ordered not to manoeuvre out at sea, especially during the night, unless ordered to do so. These two measures severely demoralized Pakistani naval crews. With the destruction caused by the Indian Navy, neutral merchant vessels soon started to seek safe passage from the Indian authorities before heading to Karachi. Gradually, neutral ships ceased sailing for Karachi. In effect, a de facto naval blockade was created by the Indian Navy.

As a result of these two operations, Karachi port was rendered unuseable.

So, Pakistan’s attempt to neutralise Indian Air Force in the west resulted in Pakistan navy and Pakistan maritime activity in the west getting neutralised. !

Navy operations do not receive the same coverage as air force operations and army operations, but these navy operations decisively swung the balance Indian way, and the ability of Pakistan to send and receive materials by sea route was absolutely crippled. Air route was in any case out of question. The two parts of Pakistan were physically cut of from each other.

This day 4 december 1971 was a big feather in the cap of Indian Navy. From that day onwards, this day is celebrated in India as Indian Navy day.

So today is the Indian Navy day. Let us hail Indian Military in general and Indian Navy in particular, whose swift retaliation on this this day 50 years ago quickly put paid to Pakistani evil designs of doing an Israel on India. When the dust settled, Pakistan had ended up getting dismembered, losing East Pakistan in the process. From that war onwards Pakistan army has not dared to enter into another war with India.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Border”(1997). This song is a befitting song for the occasion, seeing that the movie itself was based on 1971 war. This song in particular fits the Indian mood perfectly as it would have been on this day 50 years ago.

parantu sabke liye sukh aur shaanti maangne waale Hindustani
kya khud shaanti se reh sake
rehte bhi to kaise
unki dharti ka doosra naam
sone ki chidiya hai
jiski mitti mein sona
aur jungalon mein chandan hai
shaayad isi liye prakriti ne
iski suraksha ke liye
uttar mein Himalay
dakshin mein Hind Mahasagar
poorab mein Bangal ki khaadi
aur paschim mein Thaar ka registan bana diya thha

hindustan hindustan
hindustan hindustan
meri aan meri shaan
meri jaan hindustan

aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa aa

phir bhi sone ki chamak
aur chandan ki khushboo
baahar ke hamlaawaron ko lubhaati rahi
Sikandar ke ghodon ki taapon
hamaare dharti ke seene ki dhadkan tez kar dee
To Hun, Mangol, Arab, Mughal, Purtagaali, Fransisi aur Angrez
koi peechhe na raha
sab aaye aur aate hi rahe
shaayad nahin jaante thhe
ki jahaan sab duniya waale apni apni maatribhoomi se
pyaar karte hain
wahaan Hindustani apni maatribhoomi ki pooja karte hain
jee haan
Pooja

hindustan hindustan
hindustan hindustan
meri aan meri shaan
meri jaan hindustan

karodon Hindustaaniyon ki bhaawnaa ko
shabdon mein dhhaalte huye hi to
Bankim babu ne kaha thha
Sujlaam Suflaam
Malyaj Sheetlaam
shashy shyaamlaam maatram
vande
vande maatram
hamlaawaron ko haar maan kar
waapas jaana pada
par kuchh log
yahin ke hoke rah gaye
unhen hamaari dharti maa ne
god le liya
aur itihaas saakshi hai
maa ne apni kokh se janme
aur god liye bachchon mein
kabhi antar nahin rakhha
shaayad isi liye
jab jab kisi hamlaawar ne
hamaare dharti ke seene par
paanv rakhna chaaha
sab bachche seena taan kar
saamne khade ho gaye
aur seema suraksha ki deewaar
khadi ho gayi

hindustan hindustan
hindustan hindustan

hamlaawar is deewaar se takraakar waapas jaate rahe
jo unneessaubaasath mein hua
wahi san painsath mein
aur wahi ikhattar mein
har baar Hindustaaniyon ne
waapas jaate huye dushman ki taraf
dosti ka haath badhaaya
kyonki hamaari mitti ne hamen
sikhaaya hai
ki yadi nafrat karne waale
nafrat ka daaman nahin chhodte
to mohabbat karne waale
mohabbat ka daaman kyon chhhoden

Hullo Atuldom

Recently, last five years to be exact, November 2nd has been added to the dates for which I feel compelled to write a post. These were the posts from the last Five years

Dates Song
2 November 2016 Dil aashna hai jigar aashna hai
2 November 2017 Taak dhin dhin taak dhin dhin dhin
2 November 2018 Jaata hai tu kahaan
2 November 2019 Aashiq hoon main qaatil bhi hoon
2 November 2020 Katthai aankhon waali ek ladki

November 2nd became an important date in the calendar for Atuldom when we discovered that a very dear Atulite has his birthday on this date. He used to be a very active member of Atuldom. But has been missing from action since the last four months- his last post on the blog was on July 19, 2021. He has contributed 1407 posts to the blog (the highest by a guest poster on ASAD), enriched 137 posts by contributing lyrics for them, plus he has added Devnagari lyrics to 1414 posts. Most importantly all his posts have lyrics in both Devnagari and the Roman script. He is a treasure house of information and has connections to collectors of music and vinyl records of music from all eras and is competent in locating rare gems when requested by followers of the blog.

Of course his journey on the blog began like all other followers (correct me if I am wrong Sudhirji) landing on Atulsongaday in search of some song, liking the premise of the blog and staying glued to it forever. He went a step further when he became Atulji’s aide and shared the task of posting songs on the blog, which actually helped on days when Atulji was busy with earthly responsibilities.

Here is wishing our very own Dilldaar Dilliwala “Many More Happy returns of the day”.

For this post I propose that we have a song from the 26th October 2001 released, Santosh Sivan directed and Gauri Khan/ Juhi Chawla produced ‘Asoka’. It had a starcast headed by Kareena Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, Danny, Ajith Kumar (the southern star), Gerson Da Cunha (Adman, Stage & media personality), Umesh Mehra (the producer/ director of films like ‘Guru’, ‘Ashanthi’, ‘Mujrim’ etc.) along with Subhashini Ali, Hrishita Bhatt, Rahul Dev etc. The music was composed by Anu Malik; Gulzar and Anand Bakshi are credited as lyricists (must be the only time these two featured as lyricists in the same film). The vocals of Alka Yagnik, Abhijeet, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shaan, K.S. Chitra, Hema Sardesai can be heard in the songs.

Here is a melodious song from the movie which is filmed on another Dilliwala -SRK who also has his birthday today with Anu Malik the music composer also celebrating his birthday. This post which celebrates three birthdays is sung by a person whose birthday was on 30th October- Abhijeet. The female voice is of Alka Yagnik.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Sudhirji with this song penned by Gulzar.

Chorus

Lyrics

roshni se ae bhare bhare
bhare bhare ae naina tere
chhoo ke bolen
na chhoona mujhe
chhoo ke bolen

sapnon se ae bhare bhare
bhare bhare ae naina tere

aa aa aa aa

dhoondha hai dhoondha hai tujhe
aakaash upar taley
shaayad kisi badri mein
lipti hui tu miley
o o o
dhoondha hai dhoondha hai tujhe
aakaash upar taley
shaayad kisi nadiya pe
chalta hua tu miley

roshni se ae bhare bhare
bhare bhare ae naina tere
chhoo ke bolen
na chhoona mujhe

chhoo ke bolen
na chhoona mujhe

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

maine samay rok ke
tera pata poochha hai
neeli nadi se keh ke
saagar taley dhoondha hai
o o o
lehron pe chalte huve
paani ke phan chhoote hain
jaise tere ye haath hon
mera ye tan chhoote hain

roshni se ae bhare bhare
bhare bhare ae naina tere
chhoo ke bolen
na chhoona mujhe

Hullo Atuldom

Heard this song today in the noon program of Vividh Bharati -Desh Ki Surili Dhadkan (the channel’s tagline). And immediately recalled a 2001 release which featured the off-springs of the actors from the above song. ‘Farz’ from which today’s trigger happened is 54 years old, the off-springs of the actors are themselves 44 and 40..everything seems like yesterday but all things that I mentioned are decently in the PAST. Even a movie that released in 2001 is 20 years old, ooh!!!

I am talking of “Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai” which was directed by Satish Kaushik, written by Rumi Jaffery, songs were by Sameer and Anu Malik. Its cast included Kareena Kapoor, Rinke Khanna, Tusshar Kapoor, Amrish Puri, Dalip Tahil, Alok Nath, Vrajesh Hirjee, Himani Shivpuri, Dinesh Hingoo etc.

I have not seen the movie as a whole but vaguely recall that the story revolved around a sensitive young adult Karan (Tusshar Kapoor) who frequently skips college. Despite his poor academic performance, he displays many other talents. He is clever, an excellent musician, and plays in a band. His father constantly expresses his disappointment in him which often leads to Karan having outbursts of frustration and anger. One day in a deserted street, he lays eyes on Pooja (Kareena Kapoor) for the first time and falls in love with her. Following this brief acquaintance, he looks all over for her but fails to find her. He slowly begins to lose hope in his quest, stops playing music and decides to move to another city with his uncle. While on his way there, his car breaks down, and he is forced to hitch a ride. To his amazement, he finds Pooja in the driver’s seat. As they introduce themselves, an accident occurs when a truck collides with their car, which subsequently falls into a valley. Karan and Pooja find themselves hanging from a cliff, and even though Karan manages to haul Pooja back up the steep cliff, he loses his grip and falls into the ravine.

When Pooja regains consciousness, she assumes responsibility for Karan’s death and offers to help in the search for his body. Meanwhile, Karan has survived the fall but is seriously injured and unconscious. He is found by a man who takes him to the hospital and soon after, Karan is reunited with his family. As he recovers, he reflects on how he should have confessed his love to Pooja in the few moments they were together. He also begins to focus on his education instead of his music. In time, Pooja arrives at his doorstep to apologize and offers her friendship. They become good friends and then Pooja tells Karan that she must leave for the United States for further studies. Devastated, he finally confesses his love for her. Pooja feels the same way and cannot deny her feelings for Karan, and promises that she will return to him once she completes her education. Karan agrees to patiently wait for her.

September 20th is the birthdate of Kareena Kapoor. The fifth generation of the Kapoor Khaandan, only the third girl from the clan to enter showbiz- the other two being Sanjana Kapoor (Shashi Kapoor’s daughter) and Karisma Kapoor. The younger daughter of Randhir Kapoor and Babita. A few other caps also fit her dainty head- cousin to Ranbhir Kapoor, wife of Saif Ali Khan, daughter-in-law to Sharmila Tagore. She is a recipient of 6 filmfare awards beginning with award for best debut for her role in ‘Refugee’ (2000). She is considered to be a style icon and has also competent in enacting a variety of characters as we have see in ‘Chameli’, ‘Yuva’, ‘Dev’, ‘Fida’, ‘Aitraaz’ -all in 2004, each character different from the other. She has been paired opposite most of the heroes of that period- Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan, Fardeen Khan, Shahid Kapoor, and the Khans viz. Salman, Shahrukh, Aamir, Saif. She has also acted in a few multi-heroine movies. She says she is a huge fan of the (late) Sridevi.

With this song “Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai” (2001) makes its debut. This song is in the voices of Preethi, Pinky and Babul Supriyo. Preethi and Pinky are sisters who were very popular in the late 90s and at the turn of the millennium. I recall that a song, picturised on Rani Mukherjee and Preity Zinta, rendered by these sisters was very popular among school children and youngsters in that period.

Happy Birthday Bebo, I mean, Kareena.


Song-Maine koi jaadoo nahin kiya (Mujhe Kuchh Kehna Hai)(2001) Singers-Preeti, Pinky, Babul Supriyo, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Anu Malik

Lyrics

ankhiyon ne raat kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
ankhiyon ne raat kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
tuhi mere peechhe aaya piya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya aa
tuhi mere peechhe aaya piya
ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechhe aaya piya
ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechhe aaya piya

shokh haseena khushbu waali
chaand bhi tujh pe marta
itni haseen hoon chaand bechara aur bhala kya karta
chaand ki baaten chaand pe chhodo
apni baat bataao

bin bole har baat samajh lo
yoon na paheli bujaao
sona sona
main hoon sona

itna kehdo o occurs
meri hona

ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechhe aaya piya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya aa aa
tuhi mere peechhe aaya piya

maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechche aaya piya

is mehfil mein mere dil mein
kisne aag lagaayi
aag lagaane waali
tujhe tadpaane waali
mujhko nazar na aayi
chham chham paayal kyun bajti hai
mujhko zara samjhaao

baat samajhni hai jo tum ko
pass mere aa jaao
chhoona chhoona bainyya gori
dil tu de de chori chori

ankhiyaan milaake tune dil ko churaaya, loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya aa aa
toohi mere peechche aaya piya

ankhiyon ne raat kya jaadu kiya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechche aaya piya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya aa aa
toohi mere peechche aaya piya
ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
