Hullo Atuldom

“Darmiyaan” (1997) was a movie set in the Bombay (before being rechristened Mumbai) of 1946. It starred Kiron Kher, Tabu, (established actors of that time) with Rita Ganguly (renowned Hindustani vocalist), Rupal Patel, Hilla Sethna, Sayaji Shinde, Shahbaz Khan playing supporting roles. Arif Zakaria made his debut in this movie in the difficult character of a eunuch.

Kiron Kher plays a dancer or tawaif who is also a beautiful starlet who becomes very successful in the movies. She is initially in denial that she has sired a eunuch. She attains fame, has an affair with one of her co actors who later ditches her for a younger actress etc. She is disappointed / disillusioned and becomes addicted to all vices possible to the point of losing everything she possesses including her family (which deserts her), wealth home etc. Her child, who has grown up to become Arif Zakaria, tries his best to keep her afloat in her professional and personal life. He has his own identity problems to solve. Towards the end it is shown that Arif (Immi is the name of the character) finds an abandoned child, tries to look after it with his mother’s help but societal attitude towards a transgender force him to give the child away to Tabu and he ends his and his mother’s life as he feels that is the only solution to their problems.

There was another movie “Tamanna” which released in 1998 which was produced by Pooja Bhatt and directed by Mahesh Bhatt. The story of that movie seems to take off from where Kalpana Lajmi’s Immi gives up on his adopted baby. This is the next movie on my to-be-seen list. I don’t remember why I didn’t see these movies at the time of their release, but I am sure I would not have been able to find company or relish it back then. And I am glad that these movies are there on YouTube. Now I don’t know whose life story inspired Kalpana Lajmi to make this movie. I sat through the movie in the course of writing this post and found it fairly engrossing. (A sheer coincidence that there is Supreme Court verdict today (on 7th September, 2018) that says history owes transgenders an apology).

Kalpana Lajmi is the daughter of painter Lalita Lajmi and niece of yesteryear actor / filmmaker Guru Dutt. She began her career assisting Shyam Benegal who also happened to be her uncle. She has been making movies since 1978 starting with short films and graduating to films like ‘Ek Pal’ with Naseerudin Shah and Shabana Azmi in the lead, ‘Rudaali’ with Dimple Kapadia and Raj Babbar etc., her last directed film being ‘Chingaari’ with Sushmita Sen and Mithun Chakravarty in the lead roles.

Dr. Bhupen Hazarika – born on 8th September 1926 in Assam- is the music director of this movie. He has sung a song and all the background score too, specially in the scenes that show the anguish of the central characters, his baritone voice adds to the poignancy of the scenes. Probably the first time I became aware of Bhupen Hazarika, the singer / music composer was when I heard the songs of ‘Rudaali’ and was floored by the sound of “Dil Hoom Hoom Kare” but a National award and Sahitya Academy award winner doesn’t need a certificate from a layperson like me. His Padma awards Dadasaheb Phalke awards are testimony to his greatness.

The song with this post is written by Jaaved Akhtar and sung by Asha Bhonsle. Initially I began to see the movie to see if any portion of the song is present in any other part as the video available is very short. In fact, most of the songs end abruptly in the movie except the Bhupen Hazarika song which is there in 3 parts through the movie.

And no, I have not forgotten that 8th September is also my all-time favourite singer’s birthday too. How can I forget. I adore her so much. And I am sure every one would have guessed why I chose an Asha Bhonsle song to go with this post 🙂 . And we have so much information all around about Asha Bhonsle that I am controlling myself from writing anything here.

Remembering Dr. Bhupen Hazarika (a doctorate on his thesis “Proposals for Preparing India’s Basic Education to use Audio-Visual Techniques in Adult Education”) on his birth anniversary – he would have been 92 and wishing Asha Bhonsle too on her birthday.

Lyrics

nadiya kinaare ek gaon hai
gaon mein ambuva ki chhaon hai
chhaon mein rah ek yogi jaise
mann mein rahe sajana
jogi bajaaye bansuri
bansuri dard se hai bhari
dard bhari is taan se
goonje re mera angnaa
nadiya pe leheren
leheron pe naiyya
naiyya mein patwaar
phir tum kyun us paar ae saajan
aur main hoon is paar
o jee main tadpoon is paar
o jee main tarsoon is paar

bekali mein hai ye mann
mann mein hai lagi agan
oo oo bekali mein hai ye mann
mann mein hai lagi agan
tu aa ke bujha de sajan
nagri mein gali jaise
bagiya men kali jaise
kaliyon mein sajna jaise khushboo
sapnon mein hai tu
nadiya pe leheren
leheron pe naiyya
naiyya mein patwaar
phir tum kyun us paar ae saajan
aur main hoon is paar
o jee main tadpoon is paar
o jee main tarsoon is paar
aaaaa aaaaa
oooohh ooooohhh
ooooooooo

आsssss आsssss
ओsss ओssss
ओssssssss

नदीया पे लहरें
लहरों पे नैय्या
नैय्या में पतवार
फिर तुम क्यों उस पार ए साजन
और मैं हूँ इस पार
ओ जी मैं तड़पूँ इस पार
ओ जी मैं तरसूँ इस पार
नदीया पे लहरें
लहरों पे नैय्या
नैय्या में पतवार
फिर तुम क्यों उस पार ए साजन
और मैं हूँ इस पार
ओ जी मैं तड़पूँ इस पार
ओ जी मैं तरसूँ इस पार
आsssss आsssss

नदिया किनारे एक गाँव है
गाँव में अंबुवा की छांव है
छाँव में रह इक जोगी जैसे
मन में रहे सजना
जोगी बजाए बांसुरी
बांसुरी दर्द से है भरी
दर्द भरी इस तान से
गूँजे रे मेरा अंगना
नदीया पे लहरें
लहरों पे नैय्या
नैय्या में पतवार
फिर तुम क्यों उस पार ए साजन
और मैं हूँ इस पार
ओ जी मैं तड़पूँ इस पार
ओ जी मैं तरसूँ इस पार
आsssss आsssss
ओsss ओssss
ओssssssss

बेकली में है ये मन
मन में है लगी अगन
ओ ओ बेकली में है ये मन
मन में है लगी अगन
तू आ के बुझा दे साजन
नगरी में गली जैसे
बगिया में कली जैसे
कलियों में सजना जैसे खुशबू
सपनों में है तू
नदीया पे लहरें
लहरों पे नैय्या
नैय्या में पतवार
फिर तुम क्यों उस पार ए साजन
और मैं हूँ इस पार
ओ जी मैं तड़पूँ इस पार
ओ जी मैं तरसूँ इस पार
आsssss आsssss
ओsss ओssss

With each passing day, whenever I glance through its pages, I am reminded of the huge task still to be accomplished to get the balance songs of this period to the blog.

Bhupen Hazaarika, the sound and the soul of culture of the east, is now silent, forever.

This is a duet sung by Lata and Kishore Kumar,two of the biggest names among playback singers. But the same cannot be said about the lyricist and the music director, both of whom were debutants. Maya Govind was the lyricist. She was arguably the first female lyricist in Bollywood. Bhupen Hazarika, known more for his playback singing was the music director of this movie.
