Hullo Atuldom

The favourite singer of millions of Indian Mohammed Rafi was born on 24th December 1924. That means we, his fans, would have been celebrating his 97th birthday this year. But that was not to be. He just left this mortal world in July 1980 at the age of 55.

But we, his fans, need not be sad as he has left us a library full of music albums-both filmy and non-filmy. There will be many who will pay tributes to this great soul- the soft-spoken, gentle, kindhearted giant with their own personal touch. There will be programs across the various entertainment platforms that would highlight the music that Rafi saab was associated with.

For me, the day begins by listening to the Radio- Radio Ceylon to be exact- and figuring out which of the songs that are played there I have heard, and which I have never heard. Then I may move on to listening to other Radio stations.

Small Trivia:- Just found that Radio Ceylon is a year younger than Rafisaab. The precursor to Radio Ceylon- Colombo Radio – was formally launched on 16th December 1925.

I am sure we will be treated to the regular fare of Rafi hits like ‘o duniya ke rakhwaale’; ‘sukh ke sab saathi’; and possibly ‘ta ra ri ara ri ra ra ri’; ‘yeh chaand sa roshan chehera’; ‘pardesiyon se na ankhiyan milana,’ etc and a few more soulful numbers. We may also get a dose of his popular songs from the 70s like ‘o meri mehbooba, mehbooba mehbooba’, ‘kya hua tera wada’ etc. In between some channel will also squeeze in a ‘meri awaaz suno’; ‘dil ka soona saaz tarana dhoondega’; and some of his other great songs.

Additionally, we will have forwards from friends on WhatsApp and Facebook (the new age social platforms) that will give us links to sites that speak of the greatness of the Soul that Mohd. Rafi was.

Here is my tiny attempt to bring on-stage a song that was sung by the great Mohd Rafi under the baton of Ravi. It is a rarely heard song that was written by Verma Malik. It is from the 1977 release “Aadmi Sadak Ka”. Only one song from this film has been discussed on the blog so far and that was the most famous song of the movie viz. Aaj mere yaar ki shaadi hai. this was in 2013, eight years ago.

Today’s song features Zaheera, Shatrughan Sinha, Vikram (who was born Moin Uddin Shah), Sujit Kumar and Deven Verma. We see that Zaheera, Shatru and Vikram are in disguise.

‘Aadmi Sadak Ka’ was a produced and directed by Devendra Goel. It was a bilingual- made in Hindi and Marathi (called ‘Dost Asava Tar Asa’). It was the story of a well-placed family that has three sons (two of whom are married) and a daughter. The family falls into hard times when the patriarch dies, the family fortunes are usurped by the older two sons, at the behest of their wives, and the mother and the younger siblings are shown the door. The youngest son Chander (Vikram) takes up a job as a waiter and due to his good conduct keeps getting promoted and also becomes co-owner of the hotel. Now he is in competition with his older brothers and after the usual twists and turns the family is reunited and that brings the movie to ‘The End’.

With this post we also remember Deven Verma whose death anniversary was on 2nd December. He was born in Pune to Rajasthani father and Kutchi mother. He was son-in-law of Ashok Kumar, his wife was Rupa. He was a multi-talented actor who was appreciated in comic roles, but when I saw “Devar” (1966) I was stumped by the serious character he played. Devendu Verma (birth name of Deven Verma) died of a heart attack and kidney failure in 2014.
Here is the song with Anuradha Paudwal and Deven Verma singing with Mohd. Rafi.

Hullo Atuldom

“Bond 303” (1985) was produced B.C. Devra and directed by Ravi Tandon. It was one of those movies that was in the making for a long time.

It was one of the three movies that had Jeetendra play a Spy- an Indian James Bond. His James Bond act began with his ‘mast bahaaron ka main aashiq’ in “Farz” (1967) continued with “Raksha” (1981) {in both these movies Jeetendra was Agent 116}. “Bond 303” was the third in that list.

This spy-movie had all the ingredients, a movie of this genre, required viz: a hero who looks handsome, can shake a leg, do action sequences with ease, and a bevy of lovely ladies. The lovely ladies of ‘Bond 303’ were headed Parveen Babi (in a double role), Jayshree T. and Helen. The list of supporting actors had Prem Chopra, Deven Verma, Tom Alter, Iftikhar, Satyen Kappu, Shreeram Lagoo, Dev Kumar, Yusuf Khan (a.k.a Zebisco of Amar Akbar Anthony).

The story was very simple:

There are terrorist attacks all over the world. Planes, trains, houses are blown to smithereens by unknown rockets! The one to call is India’s super agent Bond 303! When we first meet him he’s preoccupied with a dozen ladies and they all burst out in an intensive song-and-dance number! Bond 303 befriends a young smart scientist, played by the cool Parveen Babi and they start to gather information about the evil organization behind it all. But someone wants to stop them and sooner than you can say “curry” they are in gravy, oops they are in danger!

This Indian spy movie had five songs that were written by Gulshan Bawra and composed by R D Burman. Amit Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, R D Burman, were the playback singers used. Today’s song is in the voices of Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar and Kalyani Mitra.

(The blog’s statistics page shows a name Kalyani Das Mitra whose 11 songs are there on the blog. I would like some knowledgeable follower to confirm if Kalyani Mitra and Kalyani Das Mitra are one and the same. The title song of ‘Saawan Ko Aane do’, posted on the blog, has Kalyani Mitra listed as playback singer.)
The song is a typical ‘roothna-manana’ song where Jeetendra and Deven Verma are seen trying to appease Parveen Babi and her companion. (I think that is Meenakshi Thakur, but I am not sure. Prakashchandraji, please help) The ladies are of course putting on an act of being upset with the boys.
We are wishing Suresh Wadkar on his 66th birthday. And remembering Gulshan Bawra on his 12th anniversary.

Hullo all in Atuldom

Saw a good clean movie with a straight forward story today. The story was almost as if inspired from the life of Valmiki.

Let me begin at the beginning. As I was writing my previous post on Hrishikesh Mukherjee I went through the filmography and saw that I had missed out seeing Sabse Bada Sukh; Arjun Pandit; Naukri; Achcha Bura; Naamumkin (of the 70s and 80s) and a few from the earlier decades. So, I decided since I have the time I shall see one today. But before that I was looking for songs where Sachin Dev Burman and Majrooh Sultanpuri had collaborated and was also hoping that all the songs of this duo had not bee posted. And sure enough all the extremely popular albums – Paying Guest, Solva Saal, Lajwanti, Nau Do Gyarah, Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi etc- that the two have worked together on have made their appearance on the blog. So that left me with the 70s to put under the search engine (because post 31st October 1975 SD Burman was not there). The 70s have given us a few gems from this duo- Phagun, Abhimaan, Sagina, Arjun Pandit etc. and on running through “the list of songs moviewise and checking up the status of these movies I found we have one song posted from Arjun Pandit, all songs of Abhimaan, Phagun (3 out of 6) Sagina (all songs posted). That left only Arjun Pandit for my use. Then I checked up number of songs in the movie and one out of three are posted.

Bingo! Here is the next song. I sat through the uploaded version of the movie on YouTube – the actual movie might have been longer as the YouTube version had only two songs, so maybe some parts of the movie too, may have got edited on the way to the cyberworld. Was impressed by the star cast. More positive feelings when I saw the introduction of Bindu in the movie. And the good feeling didn’t diminish through the movie. Nothing could go wrong with the movie- after all Hrishikesh Mukherjee was the director, dialogues were by Gulzar, central character was played by Sanjeev Kumar. The rest of the cast were also good actors, even debutant actress Srividya (from the South Indian film industry).

A small introduction to Srividya. She was born in 1953 to the Carnatic classical singer M L Vasanthakumari and Tamil film comedian Krishnamurthy. She made her acting debut at a very young age as the family had financial problems as her father had to stop acting due to some illness. She was successful in all the four South Indian language cinemas. She was also an expert classical vocalist and had done playback singing in a few south movies. Her filmography says she has worked in 5 Bollywood movies and that “Jaise Ko Taisa” was her first Hindi movie. But the title card of “Arjun Pandit” says introducing “Srividya”. {Need experts to clarify this}.

Today’s song shows Srividya getting ready to receive her friend and Saajan. Very simple sweet lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri and simple orchestration by SD Burman. Only two singers were used in the movie- Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. The Kishore Kumar song from this movie was posted on October 1, 2013 on the occasion of the lyricist and music director’s birthdate. {do we still have doubts about the birthdate of S D Burman as is mentioned by Bluefire in the comments to this posthttps://atulsongaday.me/2013/10/01/dil-mera-udaa-jaaye}

Oh, I just realized I have to explain about the Valmiki- inspiration angle to this movie. We have Sanjeev Kumar playing a henchman to the local Zamidaar (Rajan Haksar) who is dreaded by everyone in the village including his own daughter. Enter Ashok Kumar, as the doctor in the local village health centre and also a friend of the zamindar. His calm and loving nature inspires Sanjeev Kumar (Arjun Sardaar) to turn a new leaf, educate himself and make his daughter be comfortable when he is around. He goes on from being an illiterate strongman to a compassionate compounder to the doctor and finally also ends up looking after the family of the doctor as a responsible elder and family member would. So that then is the Valmiki part.

Today, 13th August is the birthday of Sridevi, as she turns 54.

For this celebration, here is a wonderful dance song performed by her, from the film ‘Jaag Utha Insaan’ (1984). The setting for the song is a stage performance, likely at a religious function. On stage, Sridevi is accompanied by Mithun Chaktravarty playing the flute and Beena signing the vocals. We also see Sudhir Dalvi, sitting next to Beena. In the audience we can see Yunus Parvez, sitting in the chair right up front, Sujeet Kumar and Kaanan Kaushal sitting  in the audience, Rakesh Roshan and Deven Verma, standing at the back, with Somayaajulu making an entry, while the program is in progress.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

So now we are all busy discussing the pros and cons of the demonetisation on our WhatsApp group. We are also having a fair number of jokes on the subject. But as our dear thandapani mentioned last week when our PM dropped the demonetisation bomb (as I like to call it) I have also decided to wait and watch for the rush at the banks and cash ATMs. At such a time a few songs ran through my mind. Let us have one of them today.

Deven Verma, the Actor-Comedienne-Producer-Director was 77 when he passed away last year. Unbelievable that it’s a whole year since then. How time flies but certain voids are never filled.

There have been various songs on Shaadi and the various rituals connected to it. For example a very good bidaai song is “Chal ri sajni ab kya soche” from “Bambai Ka Babu”. Then there are songs of mehndi; in recent times a lot of Yash Chopra movies had them (do we need to enumerate them here). There are also songs where the sister is teased by a younger sibling (Sun Sun Sun Didi from Khoobsurat) or a jiji Jija song as in “Hum Aapke hain Kaun.” Then there is the iconic song in Chaudvin Ka chand “Mera Yaar bana hai dulha” by Mohd Rafi which has stood the test of time.

“Arjun Pandit” (1976) is a recent movie by the standards of this blog. But surprisingly, little information seems to be available about this movie. This movie was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherji. It had Ashok Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Srividya, Deven Verma, Bindu etc in it.
