Hullo Atuldom

The title-cards of movies that he was present in always billed him as “And Pran”.

His was the character needed to bring out the hero in Raj-Dilip-Dev, Dharam-Rajendra-Sunil. Shammi Kapoor fooled him in “Kashmir Ki Kali”, “Bluffmaster” etc’ Kishore Kumar made him run after him in “Half Ticket”. He was unhappily-married to the girl Manoj Kumar loved in “Do Badan”.

He was a strict-rich-unbending father to Rishi Kapoor in “Bobby”. A friend to Ashok Kumar in reel and real life, they came together on-screen for the first time in “Afsana” (1951). {I hope this is correct!!! In-house encyclopediaji and other knowledgeable Atulites need to confirm this}.

He was seen along side Ashok Kumar in close to 27 movies till 1987 when Ashok Kumar played Pran’s (Thakur Satyaprakash) trusted driver, Man-Friday etc. in the Prayag Raj directed “Hifazat”. (Hope I am right here, have seen this film a long time back on television).

His association with Manoj Kumar has material for a post on its own, but I feel like mentioning that it was Manoj Kumar who thought that Pransaab (as the industry addressed him) will be able to do justice to the character of Malangbaba in “Upkaar”. The last time Pransaab acted in a Manoj Kumar was “Jai Hind” in 1999.

Additionally Pransaab was instrumental in making characters of Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra and various other actors of the 70s and 80s standout in numerous films.

It is very difficult to write a post about this lovable artiste, without touching on the extra touch, that he added to all his characters so that no-two villains looked same or had similar traits. He looked menacing blowing smoke-rings holding his pipe/cigar/cigarette in different styles. The mustache of Raka in ‘Jis desh mein Ganga behte hain” was different from the one he sported in “Ram aur Shyam”. If Helen experimented with her outfits for her dance numbers, Pransaab was known to play around his hair styles. I am sure that the readers will feel that I am a huge fan of this actor who was awarded the “Villain of the Millenium” by Stardust in 2000, the Padma Bhushan by the Government of India in 2001 and the Dadasaheb Phalke award in 2013.

Yes, I loved to see this actor in action. I found him adorable. There is a whole list of songs filmed on this actor and the following are the ones I loved him most in.

Song Movie (Year) Date posted Singer
Daaru ki bottle mein saahab paani bharta hai Majboor (1974) 14 Nov 2008 Kishore Kumar
Aake seekhi lagi Half Ticket (1962) 8 Feb 2009 Kishore Kumar, Pran
Kasme waade pyaar wafa waahe hain waadon ka kya Upkaar (1967) 1 March 2009 Manna Dey
Dil ki umangen hain jawaan Munimjee(194) 27 April 2009 Hemant Kumar, Geeta Dutt, Pran
Raaz ki baat keh doon to jaane mehfi mein phir kya ho Dharma (1973) 21 May 2009 Asha Bhonsle, Rafi
Do bechaare bina sahaare Victoria number 203 (1971) 10 March 2011 Mahendra Kapoor, Kishore Kumar
Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi Zanjeer (1973) 12 February 2012 Manna Dey
Mujhse nazren milaane ki jurrat na kar Maan Gaye Ustaad (1981) 26 November 2012 Rafi, Manna Dey
Mera ek sawaal hai sawaal ka jawaab do Maan Gaye Ustaad (1981) 12 February 2018 Rafi, Chandrani Mukherjee, Dilraj Kaur
Aji sunte ho Raja Aur Rana (1983) 12 February 2019 Mahesh Kumar, Kishore Kumar
Shaam suhaani aayi khushiyaan banke pehli baar Zinda Dil (1975) 12 February 2020 Lata, Shailendra Singh, Mahendra Kapoor

The list is not complete, there are more songs where either he is simply standing and smiling benevolently or menacingly (depending on the era of the song). I remember a song from the 90s where he is seen partying on his wedding anniversary with Asha Parekh. Everytime I see this song I think of Pran and Asha Parekh from all those movies of the 60s when he played the spoke in her love-life with the hero of those films:- “Jab Pyaar kisise hota hai”, “Love In Tokyo”, “Do Badan”, and the list is long here too. What more does one expect when a person has a career starting from 1940 and going on till 2007.

Thinking of this actor today on his 102nd birth anniversary with the party song that I mentioned in the previous paragraph. The movie is the 1993 release “Bhagyawan” which had Govinda play the son of Asha Parekh & Pran, with Juhi Chawla, Ranjeet, Aruna Irani, Kirti Kumar (Govinda’s real-life brother), Johnny Lever etc forming the rest of the cast. The movie was a typical family drama. It had songs written by Sameer, M G Hashmat, and Hasrat Jaipuri. Today’s song is sung by Abhijeet. Anand Milind were the music directors of this film.

I take this as the party to celebrate two other occasions- birthday of one Atulite and wedding anniversary of another Atulite (sirf hint hi kaafi hai).
Wishing all the best to both the Atulites.

Hullo Atuldom

21st December 1963 is the date of birth of Shri Govind Arun Ahuja, so that means he steps into the 59th year of his life on 21st December 2021. Govind Arun Ahuja is the son of former actor Arun Kumar Ahuja and singer-actress Nirmala Devi. We all know Govind Arun Ahuja as Govinda, he is the youngest of six children. Many members of his family- niece and nephews- are also into acting as also his daughter Tina.

He saw the Mithun starrer “Disco Dancer” and practiced dancing for hours, made a promotional VHS cassette and circulated it to various production houses in a bid to make in-roads into Bollywood. Anand Singh; who played Amol Palekar’s friend in ‘Gol Maal’ and was the person who mouths the dialogue ‘aao aao mere late lateef’ in the football match scene; was an assistant to Hrishikesh Muherjee; is Govinda’s mama. He is the one who offered him “Tan-Badan” where he was cast opposite Khushboo (who later became a superstar/actor in South Indian films). Around the same year, he also signed up for “Love ’86” and “Ilzaam”. Eventually, “Love ’86” was his first release, followed by “Ilzaam” and then “Tan-Badan”. Of these, “Love ’86” and “Ilzaam” were super successful.

That was the period when the super actors of yesteryears viz.- Raj Kumar, Dilip Kumar, Jeetendra, Dharmendra, Ashok Kumar, Pran, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Khanna etc.- were on their second innings of their career, meaning playing senior characters. Govinda has played second lead and other such characters in movies with these seniors. That was the way his journey in Bollywood started. He has completed 35 years in the entertainment industry. He has been a hero to actresses like Khushboo, Farha, Mandakini, Neelam, Karisma Kapoor, Kimi Katkar, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla, Meenakshi Seshadri, even Sridevi played his romantic interest in two movies. Any post on Govinda is incomplete without the mention of David Dhawan (who gave him a series of hits with the ‘No.1’ tag), Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor and Johnny Lever- constants in all Govinda films of the ’90s.

Kishore Kumar was very much present around the time that Govinda made his debut and today we are having a Kishore Kumar Asha Bhonsle – a hit jodi- duet on another hit Jodi- Govinda and Neelam. It is from the 1988 release “Hatya” which was directed by Kirti Kumar (Govinda’s brother). The songs of the movie were written by Indeevar and tuned by Bappi Lahirri. It had a cast of Anupam Kher, Raj Kiran, Om Shivpuri, Johnny Lever, Babu Anthony (a tall, lanky & good looking actor of south Indian films who hasd a great physique too), Aparajitha etc along with Baby Sujitha who played a deaf and mute child around whom the story revolves. It was a remake of a Malayalam movie that was originally directed by Fazil who also wrote the movie in for Hindi along with Kadar Khan. The deaf and mute boy , who is a witness to the brutal murder of his mother, is found by Govinda (Sagar) who makes an effort to locate his parents. Sagar gets into trouble with the cops who think that he is the culprit of the child’s mother. After a few twists and turns the real culprit is apprehended and Sagar gets to walk into the sunset with the little boy’s maasi (Sapna a.k.a. Neelam).

I have seen the Tamil, Malayalam as well as the Hindi versions, a very engrossing movie IMO.

Happy Birthday Govinda…

Blog Day :

4757 Post No. : 16500 Movie Count :

4483

Slowly, steadily, and unnoticeably, the blog reaches yet another blog century. This post is post number 16500 for the blog. In other words, this song is the 165th century post for the blog.

When I thought about writing an article to go with post, I considered going through all the previous century posts. I kept going backwards from 164th century post, 163rd century post. After ten such posts, I gave up. If someone thinks that 164 songs and 164 song articles is a small number, then please try to do that exercise yourself. If one has to make a playlist of these century songs, the entire playlist will play for more than eight hours !

If that is the case for 164 of the choicest songs in the blog, then just imgine how many hours of music the entire blog contains. The blog has been going on at the rate of 3.5 songs a day for 4756 days. Assuming that these three and half songs a day are 12 minutes long then 12 minutes equals 0.2 hours of song every day. Multiply it with 4756. We get 951 hours of song in the blog. 951 hours means 40 days of non stop music if one plays it 24 hours a day without a break.

No normal human being will be able to do it, of course. If a normal music lover decides to savour music from the blog for just one hour a day, then he will have enough masala in the blog to last 951 days, viz 2 years and 8 months. During these 951 days, the blog would add another 195 hours of music, of course. 🙂

I think, some of our regulars have tried it. They should share their experiences with us. Since I post the articles and listen to the song myself, and that too more than once, I must have heard these songs for say 2000 hours already, but in a manner that did not burden me. Rather I must have enjoyed the experience, seeing that I am still at it, after more than 13 years.

The blog completed its 13th birthday recently, on 19 July 2021. Four articles were posted on the occasions. One was a Lata Mangeshkar yearwise songs series, which has been appearing every monday in the blog for the last 45 mondays. Other three articles, by three different regulars, were blog birthday celebration posts. My Lata Mangeshkar song series takes so much time out of me that it does not leave me time for any other article on mondays from me. That is why I could not post any special blog birthday articles. So I decisded to use this century post as century post cum belated blog birthday celebrating writeup. 🙂

As is usual now a days, our century posts are low key affairs. Our regulars do not seem to wait eagerly for them unlike in the past. Even the post writer leaves it till the last moment before he wakes up and starts to look desperately for a song appropriate for the occasion. Surprisingly, despite of such negligence, we always manage to find songs that are eminently suitable for the occasion.

Most of the blog century posts are from the golden era. The blog itself mainly covers songs from that era. But we have songs (including blog century songs) from pre golden era (before 1949) and also songs from post golden era (songs released after 1980).

It is popularly believed that the golden era of HFM was over after 1980. Even then, we continued to get some wonderful songs in HFM. Quite a few songs after 1980 have figured in the blog as blog century songs. Here are their details:

Blog post number Date (Blog day number) Song Movie (Year) Remarks
4100 30 june 2011 (1077) Aisa lage kahin door se Trishaagni (1988)
9800 1 May 2014(2113) Maine tumse kuchh nahin maanga Katha (1983)
13500 3 August 2017(3303) Ye paisa bolta hai Kaala Baazaar (1989)
15200 4 September 2019 (4065) Dil mein Mars hai Mission Mangal (2019) Newest century song in the blog
15500 27 March 2020(4270) Uljhan ho chaahe koi Chambal Ke Daaku (1982) One of the rarest songs
15600 11 May 2020 (4315) Goriya uski deewaani Aag Ka Darya (1990)
16100 15 December 2020 (4533) Hai ye kaisa nasha Chorni (1981)

One can see that as many as six songs from the decade of 1980s have figured i the blog as Blog century posts. But the newest song that has figured as the blog century post is from 2019. This song from Mission Mangal”(2019) became a century post in 2019, viz in the same year when this movie and its songs were released. That is one big surprise for most blog regulars. Even I , who presented the article, was surprised. I had myself forgoten about the fact that I had done something like this, and that too less than two years ago. 🙂

Songs that figure in the blog as blog century songs are special songs in one way or the other. And the speciality varies from one song to another.

The song under discussion is a song that was reasonably popular when the movie was released. The movie was forgotten with time and even this song seemingly went away. There are some songs, that get a second wind for some reasons and this time they become far far popular than what they were the first time round.

I can give quite a few such examples. Here are some examples:

April fool banaya(April fool) was a reasonably popular song of its time that got forgotten with time. In 1983 this song got reived when it was used in an important scene in “Andha Kaanoon”(1983).

Ek chatur naar(Padosan)(1968) was hardly popular during the first run of the movie. It is only after 1980s that this song has become an extremely popular song and it seems to have become more popular and this popularity is here to stay.

Main teri dushman dushman tu meri main naagan to sapera (Nagina) had run its course and had been forgotten. The song earned huge popularity in march 2018, thanks to reasons that had nothing to do be music and Indians. Non Indians popularised this song thanks to their childish pranks on the field of cricket. My writeup on this song described the funny episode leading to the revival of this song in this article.

The song under discussion got its second wind thanks to dance competion shows that have become popular on Indian TV. On these dance songs, ordinary folks dance on some olf Hindi film dance songs. In one episode one middle aged man, Sanjeev Sriastava (a ka Dabbu Uncle) performed dance on stage on this song alongwith his wife and took the TV audience by storm. Even Govinda, who originally danced on this song found Dabbu Uncle’s dance cute. This song was performed on screen by Govinda and Neelam. On a dance show, both of them were invited as judges. This song had earned such popularity by then that the two of then were asked to come on stage and dance on the song, three decades after they had originally danced on this song on screen. And they obliged.

And here is Dabbu uncle getting to perform with Govinda himself.

It goes without saying that this is one song that has been repopularised by an ordinary man. That is the power of an ordinar man. 🙂

The movie the song belonged to was “Khudgarz”(1987). The movie was produced and directed by Rakesh Roshan for Fimkraft, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Shatrughan Sinha, Govinda, Bhanupriya, Amrita Singh, Neelam Kothari, Kadar Khan, Kiran Kumar, Saeed Jaffrey, Sudhir Dalvi,Sushma Seth, Praveen Kumar, Sangeeta Naik, Ghanshyam, Dinesh Hingoo, Satyen Kapoo, Mac Mohan, Master Javed Hyder etc in it. Rishi Kapoor and Abhi Bhattacharya had figured in guest appearances in the movie.

The movie was based on the story “Kane and Abel” penned by Jeffrey Archer without acknowedgement. Jeffrey Archer accused the maker of plagiarising his intellectual right without paying for it. It was the first time that a movie produced by Rakesh Roshan hit the jackpot at the box office. The movie was subsequently made in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Odia etc as well.

Here is this song from “Khudgarz”(1987). It is sung by Md Aziz and Sadhana Sargam. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.
Since it is the dance on the song that has repopularised the song, I was curous to know who was the dance master. I had to watch the movie for a few mintes, till the first song appeared on screen, accompanied by credits. According to credits Dances are choreographed by Suresh Bhatt. His assistants were Aruna and Sujata.

Here is this fantastic song. It is a song that has to be savoured by watching its video. The song, and its picturisation has earned enormous popularity on YT channels which was hardly the case a few years ago.

The movie makes its debut in the blog with this song.

With this song, the blog now had 16500 song posts in it. I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose continuous support and encouragement keeps fuelling this labour of love musical bandwagon. Like the lyrics of this song, eve for us in the blog “dil bahalta hai mera aapke (is blog pe) aa jaane se”. Keep visiting, keep commenting, and keep supporting us with your encouragement. We still have lots and lots of musical gems to discover and savour.

Hullo Atuldom

21st December happens to be the birthday of an entertainer who is the son of yesteryear (meaning the ’40s and ’50s) actor-producer Arun Kumar Ahuja and singer-actress Nirmala Devi. He is part of a family of 5 children -3 sisters and 2 brothers. All the children of Arun Ahuja are connected to the entertainment industry either directly or because of their children. The oldest daughter- Pushpa’s son Vinay Anand is an actor; second daughter- Padma’s son Krushna Abhishek and Arati Singh are actors; third daughter -Kamini herself is a writer, music director, singer, anchor etc.- daughter Ragini and son Amit are actors. Next of Arun Ahuja’s children is Kirti Kumar who is a director and an occasional actor. Then comes our today’s birthday boy- Govind Ahuja who gained popularity as Govinda.

Govinda started his career as an actor doing roles that were not necessarily in the comedy genre but showcased all aspects of acting viz. action, emotion, dancing etc. I remember having read his interview in magazines at the time of his debut, about how he had circulated his VHS tape to various production house that emphasized his dancing skills. I also recall reading how he had auditioned for a character in B R Chopra’s tele-series ‘Mahabharat’ before being signed by his maternal uncle Anand Singh (who happened to be Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s assistant in movies like ‘Khoobsurat’ and also played the character of Rakesh Roshan’s doctor friend in that). But ‘Tan Badan’ released after ‘Ilzaam’ and ‘Love 86’. Neelam was his heroine in many of his movies in that period.

Then he found his comic timing when he teamed up with David Dhawan in the ’90s and we found him cast opposite Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Juhi Chawla etc. We have seen him play second lead in movies of the late ’80s where Dilip Kumar, Raj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatru, Jeetu etc. played main protagonists. And Govinda says that those were learning experiences for him.

Currently we see him sharing screen-time with the likes of Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar.

Govinda has received 12 Filmfare nominations including best actor, best performance in a comic role and even a Best Villain. Yes he has played a villain too and he was very good at it in the N. Chandra directed 2000 release ‘Shikaari’. He has won 3 filmfare and numerous other awards.

It looks like his favourite male co-actors have been Shakti Kapoor (42 films), Kadar Khan (41 films), Johnny Lever (22 films), Satish Kaushik and Paresh Rawal (14 films with each).

Today’s song is from a movie that was released in 1989 but is not remembered by many I suppose. It had music by Bappi Lahiri; Anjaan and Naqsh Lyallpuri were the lyricists. From what I read on IMDB.com the story appears to be the usual masala stuff of an honest cop deciding that honesty doesn’t pay and having to encounter his own brother who has grown up to be an honest cop out to nab the cop-turned-criminal.

The cast was headed by Shashi Kapoor (possibly one of his last releases), Neelam Kothari and Govinda with Amrish Puri, Bob Christo, etc were in the supporting cast.
Here is this song from this movie. It is sung by Shabbir Kumar and AnuradhaChandrani Mukherjee. Lyricist is not known.

The song is picturised on Govinda and Neelam. It is quite a hummable song to listen to, even though the song failed to get popular.

“Farz Ki Jung”(1989) makes its debut with this song.

Hullo Atuldom

Today we are remembering a celebrity who began his life as a Professor of Civil Engineering in a Mumbai engineering college. A huge fan of Dilip Kumar, he was spotted by comedian Agha when he was performing in a play “Taash ke Pattey”. The play was recommended to Dilip saab who saw it, and signed this Professor/ stage actor for “Sagina” and “Bairaag”. This was the start of a career that spanned from the ’70s to 2019 – Govinda starrer Rangeela Raja released in 2019.

This post is about Kadar Khan who was born in Kabul to Afghan parents. He was educated in Mumbai and graduated as a civil engineer. His career as a writer in Bollywood took off when he was offered to co-write the script of “Jawaani Diwaani” by Narinder Bedi. This was followed by dialogue, script writing for over 200 films in addition to acting in around 300.

I am unable to decide if he was a better actor or writer. I am unable to decide if he evoked more emotion in the public as a villain or comic character actor. I am in love with his pairing with Govinda in both serious and comic roles. There are many movies to choose from where they have showcased their comic timing but that does not mean that they couldn’t emote serious situations. They have played grandfather -grandson in “Jaisi Karni Waisi Bharni”, father-n-son in “Haseena Maan Jaayegi”, “Sindoor”; father-in law son-in-law in “Dulhe Raja”. I don’t know if David Dhawan brought out the best in them. But it is to Rajesh Khanna’s credit that Manmohan Desai paid Kadar Khan handsomely for writing the dialogues of “Roti” in 1974.

I loved him as the lovable old man in “Gharwali Baharwali”, “Saajan Chale Sasural”, “Mr & Mrs Khiladi”. He was cute as the outwardly-submissive husband of Bindu in “Biwi Ho To Aisi”. He played a similar character with Shashikala as his wife in “Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani” (1988). He has played serious characters too as in “Yaarana”, “Adalat”, “Roti”, “Tohfa”- there is a whole list of such films.
He has had a few songs picturized on him in his long and illustrious career. Some have been philosophical and some have been funny. He has also tried to dance in some of these songs and it used to be rather cute to see.

In today’s song too, we see Kadar Khan play a slightly old character who is frustrated by the presence of a “Dhaaba” in the premises of his five star hotel. He has tried all possible tactics to evict the dhabbawala. The competition in the song is one such attempt.

This song is written by Sameer and Anand- Milind are the music composers. It is sung by Vinod Rathod and Sonu Nigam. The song has a lot of well-known couplets strung together rather imaginatively and that had made it appealing to the younger generation of that period. Besides being a song from my own ‘list of loved songs’ it also belonged to my dad’s list. He must have seen this movie every time it came on television and so have I. I am sure that the song was inspired by the song from “Padosan”- “ek chatur naar” going by the way the characters are emoting- all over the top.

The movie had Raveena Tandon as his daughter and Johnny Lever played Kadar Khan’s Man-Friday who is in cahoots with the dhabbawala -Govinda- who feels that he should be the “Dulhe Raja” of the hotel owner Singhania -played by Kadar Khan.

“Dulhe Raja” released on 10th July 1998. This was one of the 13 films that released in 1998 with Kadar Khan in the cast, he was definitely a busy 60-year old in that year.

Hullo Atuldom

At the outset I must admit that I am a little confused as I write this post. The person/ celebrity/ actress/ star for whose birthday this is, has aged gracefully and looks fabulous even now. But I am confused about her year of birth. When I wrote this post Phir Bhor Bhayee Jaaga Madhuban in 2018 I found information on various sites on the internet by which I had mentioned that she was turning 64. Over the last few weeks I am finding information by which she would be 74 this year. Can a person age 10 years in two years?

Let me explain. In the past few weeks, during this lockdown, one of the satellite channels, showed an old episode of one their dance reality shows where Bindu and Aruna Irani were guests of honour (found out today that they are cousins). This must have been one of the episodes which was originally telecast in the last two years. And I told my husband (bless him for enduring all these re-runs with me) that Bindu turns 69 this year and Aruna Irani is a few years younger and how well she has looked after herself and maintained herself. Then as I was googling to confirm the dates of birth of the two, I was surprised to see that the year of birth is given as 1946. Anyways there is a saying “not to ask a lady her age and a man his wage.” So, let us just wish our dear Aruna Irani a very Happy and healthy life.

She has had along wait before she could settle in life with a man who loved her. She made her debut in movies at a young age of 8 or 9 playing the young Azra in “Gunga Jamuna”. She had to give up on schooling so that she could help support the family which had financial problems and could not educate all eight children. I find that this is the story of many actors of that time. Her father was an Irani and mother a Hindu. Her brothers Indra Kumar (who made the Aamir Khan Madhuri Dixit starrer DIL), Adi Irani (plays mainly character roles in movies and television), Firoz Irani (also an actor. producer, writer, director) are all well settled in the entertainment industry and she has had a major hand in setting them up.

She claims that she was a bad dancer who learnt dancing on-the-job. We have seen her comic side in movies where she had paired with Mehmood in the 70s and later in movies where she was with Asrani and Kadar Khan. She was the topmost actress in Gujarati movies even as she played supporting characters in Hindi, Marathi, Kannada etc. I remember seeing her in the Tamil remake of “Deewar” essaying the same mujra as she had done in Hindi- the song “koi mar jaaye kisi pe yeh kahan dekha hai”. She has produced and directed a few serials and acted in them too.
Today, for her birthday we will be seeing her as a not-so-young bua to Karisma Kapoor and Pooja Batra who are elated that she has finally found someone and likes him enough to think of marrying him. The song is at the engagement of the bua with Pooja’s fiance’s (Sanjay Dutt) uncle/ chachaji Rai Bahadur (Govinda). This movie has the two heroes trying to woo the heroines only Govinda has to double up as chacha and bhatija. In the process, before the niece the bua gets wooed.

The song is from David Dhawan directed “Haseena Maan Jaayegi” (1999) which had Anupam Kher playing the father of the girls, Kadar Khan played father of the boys. A part of the movie is inspired by “Pyaar Kiye Jaa” and we have Govinda donning a grey wig and beard and playing his own chacha. Paresh Rawal, Ashish Vidyarthi adding spice to this all round comedy.

The song is in the voices of Sonu Nigam, Kavita Krishnamurthy and Ravi Shankar (hearing this name for the first time). Anu Malik is the music director and Sameer the lyrics in-charge.

Happy Independence Day

15th August- a very very important day in the life of any Indian. The day we are thankful to our predecessors who laid down their lives for getting us freedom from foreign rule.

Predecessors includes even those unnamed freedom fighters who walked along with the leaders of those times. It includes those who did not like to be ordered around by people who didn’t have an iota of understanding why India was the way it was.

Thinking back we can see that beginning from Alexander there have been regular invasions and intrusions into India. Our history books have taught us that prior to that there were the Aryans who moved in to make this their land. Plus we have read how the Persians fled from their country and were given a place in our land and hearts. All this was before the Muslim rulers of say Turkish or Mughal dynasty. Some of them came to plunder or conquer; they either stayed back or plundered and left. But those were the times when this part of the continent was made up of various small kingdoms or states and each was a country of its own.

As I have understood Indian History, it was only after Akbar took charge in the north and some of the existing rulers of that period accepted his supremacy, was there a semblance of oneness among those who, he ruled over, in that region. Even at that time we had chieftains or Kings or Ranas who opposed being ruled by an outsider. This I am speaking of the 1500s when Rana Pratap was against bowing to the might of Akbar. Similarly, about 100 years later, we have had Chhatrapati Shivaji standing up for his right over his motherland and fighting the forces of Aurangazeb.

The European rulers also looked towards India around the 1500s when the Portuguese rule began which lasted till 1961. The French and the British followed in the 1600s. They started as traders and stayed back to rule.
A few small kingdoms joined forces to stand against the Muslim rulers. But when the people realized that the Europeans had also taken over a large part of the territory and were not interested in fair governance they united to try and shake the reigns off. At that point there was no difference between Hindu or Muslim kingdoms and we had a Rani Lakshmibai, Tatya Tope, Nanashaeb working alongside Begum Hazrat Mahal and Bahadurshah Zafar. There were numerous smaller kings too who joined hands for this purpose.

Rana Pratap, Chhtrapati Shivaji, Rani Lakshmibai, Tatya Tope, Nanasaheb, Bahadur Shah Zafar, Begum Hazrat Mahal are the predecessors of Mahatma Gandhi, Balgangadhar Tilak, Netaji, Sardar Patel, Pandit Nehru etc. who nailed the final nails into foreign rule and united all the small kingdoms into what is today INDIA.

All these so-called outsiders have left their mark on the psyche of the country. There are elements in our cuisine for which we can thank the Persians:- it is said that the national favourite Samosa is of Persian ancestry (should ask some researcher for confirmation). The Biriyani was introduced to us by the Muslim rulers. We should be thankful to the Europeans for bringing the cake to us. Just as these outsiders liked our spices we also accepted their soups, salads and art of baking and made it our own.

Those days most of our clothing used to be one long un-stitched garment we don’t even know who taught us the art of stitching.
In our haste to rectify what has happened in the 200 to 300 years of foreign rule we should stop to think what all we can give up. We are slaves to our modes of transport and communication which was not there before the 18th century- posts, telegraph, vehicles, trains, phones can we live without them? Can we live without electricity? Are we ready to give up cooking with LPG which is more comfortable than cooking with firewood. And most important we converse also freely in a foreign language. There are many among us who cannot write a sentence in their own mother tongue without errors. (I plead guilty)

Yes we have our own culture that makes us proud of being Indians. We are proud that we welcome everyone with open arms. We have a concept of “Attithi Devo Bhava”. Even if later we regret welcoming them as it happened when the foreign rulers came.

We are proud that there is a family system in place and even in this 21st century a child obeys his/her parents and elders even when he/ she is 50 or grownup or old. We look down upon people who don’t take care or abandon their elders. We still have mothers worrying about their children through her lifetime. Even children know that they have a family to fall back on in times of crisis.

All the things about India and Indians that I want to state is present in this new (by blog’s standards) song so I shall jump to the song as my post has become rather long.

The song is clearly an extension or we can say inspired from Manoj Kumar’s “Hai preet jahaan ki reet sada” that came in 1970. And the choreography seems to be inspired by “pag ghunghru baand meera naachi thi” to start off with.

The song is set in a restaurant. The hero (Govinda) has just been shown the door at a job interview where (according to the interviewer) he has given an absurd answer to the question “Tell me something about India”. He equates India with Cow saying that ‘a cow is our mother just as India is our mother. It has four legs India has four pillars- Hindu Mulsim Sikh Issai (christianity)’ He says a few more similarities between India and a Cow and he is thrown out. He sings this song on his way out and the public present at the restaurant appreciates and enjoy themselves. But the end result is he still doesn’t get the job but that is beyond the realm of today’s post.

It is sung, written and composed by Anand Raj Anand in the 1998 Raveena Tandon-Shilpa Shetty-Govinda starrer “Pardesi Babu”. The movie and the singer/lyricist/ composer also make their debut on the blog.

Jai Hind!!!


Song-It happens only in India (Pardesi Babu)(1998) Singer-Anand Raj Anand, Lyrics-Anand Raj Anand, MD-Anand Raj Anand

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 39
——————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Joru Ka Ghulaam’ a movie released in 2000. By the standards of the blog it is ‘new’ movie, but if we think about it dispassionately, 2000 was 20 years ago, and so this movie is already twenty years old by now. That is how time flies!!

The name ‘Joru Ka Ghulaam’ will also remind readers of the Rajesh Khanna movie of the same name that was released in 1972. That movie was considered to be unsuccessful at the box office at that time, but now some online sites (perhaps run by people who were not born by 1972) claim that it was a ‘hit’ movie. This movie of 1972 had some nice songs in it. Nainon mein nindiyaa hai was my most favorite song from this movie. All songs of this movie have already been covered in the blog.

Ten years ago on 05.07.2010, three songs were covered on the blog including one song each from “Joru Ka Ghulam”(1972) and “Joru Ka Ghulaam”(2000).

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Main joru ka ghulaam banke rahoongaa Joru Ka Ghulaam-2000 01 song posted
Aayiye aapko main apne bangley ki sair karaaun Joru Ka Ghulaam-1972 All songs covered
Ek samay par do barsaaten Jhoola-1962 All songs covered

We can see that a good ‘variety’ of songs was presented on this day ten years ago. 🙂

‘Joru Ka Ghulaam-2000’ was directed by Shakeel Noorani for Noorani Film Corporation’. He was also the producer of this movie. Shadab Noorani was the executive producer of this movie and Nilesh Ronghe was the chief assistant director.

The movie had Govinda, Twinkle Khanna, Kader Khan, Ashok Saraf, Ashish Vidyarthi, Ali Asgar and Johny Lever, supported by Razak Khan, Sonu Sagar, Rushika, Rajashree, Ghansyam, Moses, Rakhi Sawant, Bobby Vatsa and many others.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Ikram Akhtar. Whereas the dialogues of this movie were written by Tanveer Khan. Editing was done by Sudhir Verma. Ganesh Acharya was the choreographer for this movie. Dinesh Telkar was the cinematographer.

Sameer was the lyricist for the songs of this movie and Aadesh Shrivastava was the music director.

So far only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog and that was exactly ten years ago on 05.07.2010.

Song Posted On
Main joru ka ghulaam banke rahoongaa 05.07.2010

Today’s song is another typical Govinda type dance song, but then it had the special music of Aadesh Shrivastava who has given some special rhythms of ‘Bhojpuri’ folk and had created many songs in his own style which always give a fresh mood to the listeners to enjoy.

Coming back to today’s song the song is picturised on Govinda, Johny Lever and others. (I am not aware of the female artist in the song).
Sonu Nigam and Aadesh Shrivastava are the singers of this song. Lyrics are by Sameer.

I had never watched this movie but remember this song and it also reminds of the ‘neeche paan ki dukaan, upar gori ka makaan’ scene of Amitabh and Shashi Kapoor from ‘Silsilaa-1981’, where both of them are in drunken state and wandering on streets. 🙂 I hope my recollection is correct.

So, here is one more Govinda songs after ‘Raja Babu-1994’ under the ‘ten-year challenge series. One can guess that the blog and our editor was suitably impressed by Govinda movies ten years ago which saw song from these Govinda movies being discussed, despite these movies being recent movies by the standards of the blog. 🙂

Let us now enjoy today’s song ….

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 7
——————————————————————————

Welcome all to this post under the ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ – (2010-2020).
Once again we have a movie which has completed a ‘decade’ on the blog with only one of its song posted on the blog.

This movie is ‘Raja Babu-1994’.

Regulars on the blog would be surprised why I am presenting a song from this movie? I am neither a Govinda fan nor is this a song that triggers any memories in my mind.

I want to clarify that I do have a connected memory associated with this movie and I watched it too. But it was not by choice, rather to make used of my waiting time, when I was forced to endure wait of twelve to sixteen hours at Guna (M.P) Railway station.

I was reminded of that incident when I came across the name of thjis movie while checking for the ‘blog ten-year challenge’.

I was travelling from Nagpur to Kota via Bina. At Guna station our train was terminated as there was some problem on the Guna-Kota route. Onward journey was possible only next day. My cousin (from Nagpur) was also travelling with me so we decided to take a round of Guna. There was a theatre near the railway station running this movie ‘Raja Babu-1994’ so (reluctantly for me, because I was not much interested in watching all the new movies then) we decided to watch this movie.

I don’t remember now if I like it then or not.

I think I had only watched very few of Govinda movies viz. ‘Marte Dam Tak-1987’, ‘Swarg-1990’, ‘Hum-1991’, ‘Aankhen-1993’ when I was staying at Kota and watching movies with colleagues on Sundays/holidays was ‘customary’.
However, later on I like him very much in ‘Coolie No.1-1995’, ‘Deewana Mastaana-1997’, ‘Bade Miyaan Chhote Miyaan-1998’ etc.

Recently I get to watched his ‘Bhaagam Bhaag-2006’ on TV.

Coming back to today’s post, one song from ‘Raja Babu-1994’-the much talked about song (or the most popular?) from this movie- has already been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the second song from the movie to be posted on the blog.

Two songs were posted on the blog on this day ten years back i.e. on 21.02.2010;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Sarkaay lyo khatiyaa jaada lage Raja Babu-1994 01 of 07 songs posted
Din control ke aye … itni lambi chaudi duniya Mr. Sampat-1952 03 of 13 songs posted

‘Raja Babu-1994’ was directed by David Dhawan for ‘Sapna Arts’. It was produced by Nandu G. Tolani. It had Govinda, Karishma Kapoor, Shakti Kapoor, Aruna Irani, Gulshan Grover, Prem Chopra and Kadar Khan, and others.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by K. Bhagyaraj. Dialogues were written by Anees Bazmee. A.K. Rana was the Chief Asstt. Director and A Muthu was the Editor of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.01.1994.

Lyrics for the seven songs (including one multiple version song) in this movie were written by Sameer and music was composed by Anand-Milind.

Only one song from this movie has been posted earlier and the today’s song is the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is a duet song sung by Kavita Krishnamurthy and Udit Narayan and its picturized on Govinda, Karishma Kapoor and others.

Let us now listen to this song …

(Note: (1) – The words in the ‘mukhda’ of this song are different as ‘Yaad sataaye teri neend churaaye, ab dil naa lagey dilbar’ in the separate audio/video links available on YT however in the movie (available online) the words are ‘Yaad sataaye teri neend churaaye meri, dil naa lagey dilbar’. Lyrics noted here are as per the audio link given below (longer version).
Note: (2) – The audio version is having one extra ‘antaraa’ (the second one, which is not in the video) which has been included in the lyrics below).
