I have been watching and enjoying films since last 65 years and like all other Senior Citizen,I too have developed love for old films,old songs,old times,old customs and old memories.But I have ensured that my love of these ‘oldies’ is not blind or of extremist view. I do not have inflexible opinions about old or new things. I do enjoy many new things which have made life more comfortable and enjoyable,like computers,Mobile phones or TV serials etc.

Welcome all to the 7400th offering on this blog, which in my opinion should now be renamed as Atul-Six-Songs-a-Day (or maybe Atul-Six-Pack 🙂 :).)

The last century milestone bade a goodbye to 2012, which turned out to be a marvelous year, as far as the accomplishments of this blog and its contributors are concerned. And then, moving on, we are now at the next century milestone, yet once again. A mite longer than regular, this century took twenty four days to arrive, far above the normal rate of one century every sixteen or eighteen days. In the interim, there were some days of travel that took time out of Atul ji’s schedule. But no matter, the interest and participation in the blog continues unabated, with unflagging enthusiasm. And that, dear friends, is the most heartening feature of this blog.

In life, every body has a target. We have seen different people choose different routes to reach the same target as they prefer one route over another according to their likings. Target of Atulji’s blog is not to produce another version of HFGK. But to give all hindi film song lovers a chance to cherish songs from different contributors with full lyrics and comments, which is then followed by discussion on the story line of the movies and the artists by our in house encyclopedia, Shri Arunji and others join in.

Madan Mohan may often be typedcast in the minds of many music lovers as a composer of ghazals, mainly with Lata and to some extent with Rafi. But Madan Mohan was a versatile music director. I have listened to many Madan Mohan songs of other genres as well and I have posted them too.

Vasant Desai had a fairly long stint of thirty plus years in the film industry, and yet his total assignments as a music director are less than fifty. It is said that he did not take up or did not get many assignments because of his style. His style is deeply rooted in the classical and folk traditions, and he maintained that style throughout his career. In the 60s and 70s, his assignments are few and far between, and yet, with each outing as a composer, he has left an indelible mark.

As a child, I have been a very dedicated listener to the Hindi film songs on All India Radio and Radio Ceylon. Besides the song, another program that I never missed was the weekly program for children on Sundays, “Bacchon Ke Liye”, broadcast at 9 am. This hour long program was a most fascinating trip to many worlds. The program was hosted by the well known radio announcer Madhu Chanda (later also worked on Doordarshan), and a gentleman whose name I cannot recall now. The program consisted of information, entertainment, games (e.g. antaakshari competition, but not of filmi songs; it was on current Hindi poetry). We had stories, short plays, memoirs of great men and women from Indian history, programs on new adventures in science and exploration, programs on values and behavior. For all the years that I followed it on the radio, one thing that this program never was – it was never boring.

Ashok Kumar has been the doyen of the male actors of the Hindi film world, with a career that started in the 1930s and lasted to the early 2000s. The one thing that was the most remarkable about him was his presence on the screen, and the fact that he could make the viewers feel that he was thoroughly enjoying himself. There are many actors who are natural, whose performance just blends into the situation without any kinks. One can think of Sanjeev Kumar, Guru Dutt, Geeta Bali, and many more. Their performance always seems so effortless as they work through their roles on the screen. But with Ashok Kumar, there is this added element of having fun, and even conveying to the audience that he is simply enjoying doing the role.

It has been variously said that there is a song in Hindi movies for practically any occasion, any situation, any profession, in short, there is a song for probably just anything. One just has to look for it long enough. The list of categories of songs on this blog itself is evidence that there are absolutely zany and unthinkable situations for which there are songs in Hindi movies. So, is there a song for cleaning dishes? I am sure there are more than one song in domestic or business situations wherein dishes are being cleaned with music and singing. How about cleaning dishes and utensils to classical music? :D)
