Blog Day :

4005 Post No. : 15109 Movie Count :

4150

For today’s post, I have chosen a movie who’s two namesakes are already there on the blog and thanks to their popularity they have even been yippeed already. However, this 2002 release and another namesake are perhaps waiting for me to open their account on the blog.

This film like many of the movies (phenomena particularly seen in 1930s) was inspired by a play. The director Vipul Amrutlal Shah adapted this movie from his own Gujarati play Andhalo Pato (Blindman’s Bluff). He has done these kind of adaptations later as well. I feel that its certainly a good idea to adapt movies from plays, novels, short stories etc as these often have wonderful ieas in them around which screenplays can be built. A good script will always give strength to a movie. Music no doubt is important to a movie but it can only do so much alone. I hope our filmmakers today will focus more on continuing this trend of re-using good stories rather than re-using good songs to make something else out of them!

The film tells the story of Vijay Singh Rajput (Bachchan) a hard-working but temperamental man who has spent all his life working for one bank and even achieving them international recognition. When Vijay loses his mind and goes on a violent rampage beating up another employee, he is subsequently fired. He decides to take vengeance by organising a full on heist and having the same bank robbed by three blind men as no one will suspect them. The film was quite appreciated when it released.
The detailed plot was as follows:-

Obsessive and temperamental bank manager Vijay Singh Rajput (Amitabh Bachchan) loses his job for badly beating up a bank clerk who tried to embezzle money. Angered at losing his job he plots revenge on the bank by intending to stage a heist. He employs three blind men – Vishwas (Akshay Kumar), a blind person who has the power of the sixth sense, Elias (Paresh Rawal) and Arjun (Arjun Rampal) — when, after passing by school for the blind, he understands that blind people can be trained to do things like sighted people. He blackmails and enlists the help of Neha (Sushmita Sen) who is a teacher at the school to train the trio to do the seemingly impossible heist. He chose blind people because they, as thieves, would never be suspected as noone would believe blind people can rob a bank.

The bank robbery is successful, with the jewels safely captured by the three. However, in the process of robbing the bank, Elias’s face is exposed, captured in footage and prompting citywide posters with his face. Meanwhile, Mr. Rajput anxiously tries to extort information from Vishwas and Arjun regarding the jewels and their location. Unable to answer, as they did not collect the items, they try to defer the answer by changing subjects. Ultimately, it is revealed that Elias is the one with complete knowledge of the box’s belongings. Meanwhile, tensions rise between Rajput and Neha; the latter resists the abusive nature of Rajput and his obnoxious harassing of Vishwas and Arjun. Arjun confesses his love to Neha, who reveals that she is associated in the plot only for the well-being of her younger brother, Rahul, who has been kidnapped by Rajput.

In a furious attempt, the police try to locate Elias. Elias lands up at Rajput’s place after getting drunk. Rajput tries several ways to force Elias into revealing the location of the box. Unable to generate an answer, he slams Elias, who falls on the ground and injures his eyes, causing bleeding. Even in this scenario, Rajput tries to get the information, but Vishwas and Arjun resist and claim that they will reveal the location if Elias is treated by paramedics. Rajput sends them to get Dr. Siddiqui. Vishwas senses that Elias is in danger and Arjun and Vishwas double back to the training center to save him. Rajput starts to harass Elias by tickling him to force him to reveal the answer.

In the action, Elias falls off the balcony and dies. Unable to bear the shock of the death, Neha pulls a gun on Rajput and threatens to reveal everything to the police if he does not leave her and the other two alone. Rajput notifies Neha that all these acts were done under her training, and he is spotless. Unable to bear this fact, Neha shoots herself, just as Vishwas and Arjun return after hearing loud screams.

Both men gang up on Rajput and try to attack him. Once Rajput realises that the men are ignorant about the jewels, he starts shooting them. The police arrive, and confusion ensues. Vishwas and Arjun come out and claim that Rajput is abusing them while he claims that there is a big conspiracy involving the two men, Neha and Elias. Unable to believe that blind men can ransack a bank and amidst Rajput’s impassioned defence, the police start getting suspicious. In the heat of defending himself, Rajput reveals that he had sent over Elias, thus confessing his crime.
In the end, Rajput has been locked away. Vishwas and Arjun decide to take care of Rahul and ultimately find the jewels – they were hidden in Elias’ musical instrument.

This would appear as the typical Hindi film end where the evil man ends up in jail. However, old timers may be remembering the curious case of Bandini having two endings being shot. As told in Bioscope ki Baaten on Vividh Bharti’s pitara programme long back Bimalda could not decide what end to give the movie. One option was to send Nutan’s character to hear new beau played by Dharmendra and the other was for her to go to her old love Ashok Kumar. As per announcer Kamal Sharma who hosted it as per my memory, Bimalda shot both the endings and showed it to a selected audience (perhaps the distributors??) who decided that the ending where She goes to side of the ailing Ashok Kumar would be more apt.

However in this movie’s case, the film makers had another ending in mind which was released in the overseas version! In the overseas viewers version, Rajput bribes the cop (Aditya Pancholi) and is set free, in return to get him his share and gets his manager Bhandari (Ajit Vachani) arrested. Vishwas and Arjun are sitting in a train (waiting for it to depart) and Rajput is standing on the platform with a smile on his face. He then warns them that “A dangerous game is about to begin”, after which Vishwas and Arjun both draw their guns, and the film ends.

Perhaps the film makers felt that overseas audience would better accept the corrupt angle while also leaving room for a sequel which never happened. Obviously, the alternate ending overseas version was longer in length too.

Interestingly, when the movie released, the pirated movies would often come via the Dubai route and in India, people going to cinemas and watching it at home were seeing the different endings! The movie was a big hit. I especially loved the way Sushmita Sen matched up to Amitabh Bachchan during her very effective role. Its sad that we have got to see so less of her in films. Bollywood, She hasn’t been seen since Chingaari (2006). Are you listening??

Before, I come to the chosen song itself, I must mention a very curious case of P-stats for the song. One man who “appears” as if He is yet to make his debut on the blog as far as one can see has not yet made his debut on the blog is making his debut with this song post. What’s interesting is that He’s making his debut on the blog as a singer, a composer as well as what he’s most known as – a Lyricist! Another interesting thing is that his co-composers in the song are a well known composer duo as well as a talented, now sadly deceased, solo composer. So this song for which he has written the lyrics has four composers! That’s quite rare must say!! I was surprised when I first discovered this and had to get hold of the “record” i.e. the CD to confirm the same! This gentleman has not only been a singer, composer and lyricist but also contributed to films as a dialogue writer as well as an actor!
You can see the CD for the credits here on Amazon.

I hope I have made you curious about the identity of the artist! You’ve probably heard some songs of his. He’s known for reviving Bambaiyya style songs in films like Ghulam (1998) and Satya (1998). For many years he was in demand for his Bambaiyya lyrics! His name is of course Nitin Raikwar.

How he came to write probably his biggest hit which kick started his lyricist career is a quite interesting incident. The year was 1996. Actor and filmmaker Neeraj Vora recommended that he go and meet ‘Mr Perfectionist’ Aamir Khan. Aamir was shooting on the sets of Ghulam at Sanpada in Navi Mumbai. He needed someone to write some funny shayaris for a character in his next film Sarfarosh. When Nitin reached there he found that due to some technical slag the whole unit was on standby while it was being rectified. Seeing Aamir free, Nitin went up to him and requested him to give a listen to one of the songs he had written. Aamir heard it and immediately called the director Vikram Bhatt. They both found the song unusual but nice. That song which got included in the movie was ‘Aati Kya Khandala’ which became a super duper hit (It was sung by Aamir himself with Alka Yagnik. Its not yet on the blog and I’m reserving it for a future post by me. Me. Me. Peevsie’s mom and other’s please note 😀 ). This song will probably feature in any playlist of Bambaiyya Hindi songs.

He was to follow it up with many hits. One of these is already on our blog. That is the famous Apun Bola Tu Meri Laila from Josh (2000) which has already had a post by Peevsie’s mom nearly 6 years back on 20th August here:-

In the tagging it has got miscredited to Sameer (who also wrote for the movie) and thus it became his “secret debut” on the blog (the writeup does mention him in one place!). The correctness of the credit can be easily seen on the CD here

Some of his other popular songs include Excuse Me Kya Re (from Style 2001) and Khallas from RGV’s Company (2002). He penned for many more movies being sought out for the Bambaiyya flavour. He was also called for children’s movies like Chhota Chetan (1998) and Jajantaram Mamantaram (2003).

He talked about all this in a 2017 interview with Mid Day.
To quote from it:-

Writing in tapori language was a skill that Raikwar developed after he moved to Mumbai from Pune in 1987. By then, he had already tried his hand at singing in orchestras, something his father wanted him to do since he was a successful show organiser. “But I didn’t see myself singing in orchestras all my life. I was aware of the risk and struggle involved in Bollywood, but I was adamant to make it,” he says. With little money to spend, Raikwar’s story reads like that of so many others who move to Mumbai from smaller towns to try their luck. “When a man is struggling, he spends time with people who are like him. So I would sit at chai tapris and talk to rickshawallas, drivers and daily wage labourers. Because I’m talkative and an extrovert by nature, I could strike up a conversation with just about anyone. That’s how I picked up the slang,” he says. Even when he didn’t have projects, Raikwar would write and seek feedback from his friends, some of whom were already working in the film industry as supporting actors. And it’s through their assistance that he finally met Anil Kapoor on the sets of Ladla. “I consider that the turning point in my life. Anil Kapoor felt I had potential and introduced me to directors and filmmakers,” he says. Raikwar’s first song was Teri Tirchi Nazar Main Hai Jaadoo for Anil Kapoor-starrer Loafer in 1996. But it was Aati Kya Khandala that earned him fame like no other. In fact, it helped him bag a Shah Rukh Khan film soon after. “I remember writing Apun Bola in 15 minutes after I heard the script. I wanted it to reflect Goan culture so I included words like kokum curry. You’ll also find words like ‘hoinga’ and ‘karenga’, just the way a Catholic aunty would say them,” he says.

In 2014, Raikwar had to put all work on the backburner for two years due to an illness. It began with bouts of headache, and he was later diagnosed with subdural hematoma of the brain. “The clots had to be removed through surgery. For a long time, I couldn’t work because of the illness. I’m fine now, and hope to get back to what I do best,” he says.

“I think what worked for me at that point was the novelty factor. People dig variety. For instance, we may love our vada pav, but when the burger made an entry in early 2000, we started queuing up for it. It’s the same with songs,” he says. These days, Raikwar is working on his debut album for which he has collaborated with Shrikant Ahire, one of Maharashtra’s foremost shadow dancers. He plans to release a single from it next month. The song is called Khan Sahab Apne Ladke Ko Sambhal. “I thought I’d write in a manner that people identify with. I can’t write in a flowery and larger-than-life way. It’s not me.”

For some reason, the album and song are yet to release though the 2017 interview suggested it would happen soon. No other work from him has come too as far as I can see.

Coming to the song post, It’s a very danceable song composed by our composer ‘quartet’ of Nitin Raikwar, Aadesh Shrivastav and Jatin-Lalit. Joining Nitin Raikwar sing in the movie are Aadesh Shrivastav himself and Actor/Singer Arun Bakshi who you all stalwarts probably already know about from his multiple movies. Written in his usual tapori style, the song for me at its core is quite a philosophical song asking one to not worry about our troubles and that we will one day have everything we want. The song has a nice uplifting mood to it that I love to listen when feeling a bit down sometimes. The feelings of the song somehow remind me of Manna Dey’s rendition of ‘Door Tera Gaon Ho, Thake Tere Paaon Hon Chalta Chal’ from movie Fashionable Wife (1959) which too I am fond of.

Here is the song for you all Bambaiyya Hindi lovers:-

Its picturised on Akshay Kumar, Arjun and Paresh Rawal. The song had become quite an anthem in those days just like today we have Apna Time Aayega but probably in a larger way. A view of the youtube comments of the song will prove that.

Karan Arora says, “My dad is a GM in maruti showroom now……. But 15 years ago…we had a financial crisis…He had to work as a driver under an advocate….we use to live on rent in one room of a govt. Apartment. I was 5 years old At that time.. Jab bhi main dukhi hota tha….he always use to say ” fatela jeb sil jayega…. Jo chahega mil jayega….. Tere bhi din ayenge chhote…. ” to encourage me… But us time esa lagta tha ki future hi nahi hai hamaara…but here we are… Living happily now… So I’m just sharing my story with you guys to encourage everyone who’s struggling in life right now….. Abhi main tum log ko kehta hoon “fatela jeb sil jayega… Jo chahega mil jayega…. Tere bhi din ayenge chhote”……bs rukne ka nahi…. Chalte raho…. 💙💙💙”

Saurabh Mahambrey says, “If three blind guys can sing about a better tomorrow and successful rob a bank …. You can do anything 😂😂😂”

Enceladus says, “2019 anyone 😂 this song is for eternal struggle”

Shubh Patil says, “Best way to get rid of anxiety attacks.. 2019 still here😁😁”

CRT says, “Whenever I feel down, I remember this song. And half of my tension goes away 😃”

Ansh Patil says, “Iconic song.. Amazing movie.. Specially Paresh Rawal rocks”

Shubham Hatekar says, “This song encourages me more than “Apna Time ayega”. Anyone feels same.”

I certainly feel the same. Stay motivated and keep going. You are stronger than the sum of all your troubles. Never forget that.

फटेला जेब सिल जायेगा

अरे भेजा क्यों सरकाने का
सही बोलता है सही बोलता है
टेन्शन कायेको लेने का
फटेला जेब सिल जाएगा

जेब में तेरे दस रुपया
पीले कटिंग खा ले भजिया

हा हा हा

जो चाहेगा मिल जाएगा
तेरे भी दिन आएंगे छोटे

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is so heartening to see our beloved blog reaching yet another big milestone of 15000 songs being posted! Over a decade plus of hard work by all involved has made this possible but above all it has been Atul ji’s steadfast disciplined hard work which has led to it. I first of all congratulate him for this achievement. Your dedication, hard work and encouragement is always inspiring us. I have run out of hats to raise for all the wonderful work you have been doing here on this blog. May God always bless you and give you strength to achieve all your goals in your personal and official life.

I also wish to thank all the other contributors who have all become my friends during the journey of this blog. It has been a pleasure knowing you and Its always enjoyable meeting all of you. I think we should celebrate soon with a celebratory party Hangout (online or offline) with all of us meeting in spite of the time zone differences which separate us but love for music at the end of the day never fails to join us. Keep smiling always and be ever happy all of you!

For today’s song post I have chosen a song I was in love with when the movie released. This movie had some lovely songs under the baton of ace composers Jatin-Lalit and it makes its debut on the blog with this song. The movie was directed by a favourite director of mine, Kundan Shah whose film ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ (1983) is a delightful watch for all avid movie lovers even today years after its release (I shudder to hear talks of it being remade. Classics should be best left untouched. ‘Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai’ (1980) was touched just last week and all critics unanimously agree it was best left untouched). The movie’s name of course is ‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’ which was a 1994 release. Many big names and soon to be big names participated in this delightful movie whose main details are as given below:-

Movie: Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa (1994)
Director: Kundan Shah
Starcast: Shahrukh Khan, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Deepak Tijori, Rita Bhaduri, Satish Shah, Anjan Srivastav, Goga Kapoor, Tiku Talsania, Ravi Baswani, Naseeruddin Shah, Juhi Chawla
Producer: Vikram Mehrohtra
Banner: Shemaroo Video Pvt Ltd
Release Date: February 25th 1994

This is how Wikipedia describes the movie:-

‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’ (lit. Sometimes yes, Sometimes no) is a  1994 Indian Hindi romantic coming-of-age comedy film directed by Kundan Shah and starring Shah Rukh Khan, Suchitra Krishnamurthy, Deepak Tijori and Naseeruddin Shah. This is one of the rare mainstream Hindi movies in which the hero plays the role of a loser. It is widely considered to be one of Shah Rukh Khan’s best performances, and he has said that it is his favourite film. He received the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance for his role. Produced on a budget of ₹1.4 crore, the film grossed ₹5.5 crore, equivalent to ₹84 crore (US$12 million) adjusted for inflation. At the 39th Filmfare Awards, it won the Critics Award for Best Film and the Critics Award for Best Actor for Shah Rukh Khan, who also won the Best Actor award for ‘Baazigar’ (1993) at the same ceremony.

I still remember seeing this slice of life movie in a theatre. I was now old enough to go to a theatre by myself and I made the most of the period watching many of the good movies of the period. In spite of the movie being released during exam times, my parents permitted me to watch it and I enjoyed watching it. All the actors in the movie had done really good roles. Suchitra Krishnamurthy had made her acting debut with the movie. Many critics didn’t like her acting but I felt she tried her best giving a genuineness to the performance. She didn’t appear in much movies due to her personal life decisions but I have liked the few and far between movies she did. During the pop boom, she had done a handful of albums too whose cassettes I have enjoyed in those days. ‘Dole Dole’ was a particular favourite with me. Deepak Tijori who was the other lead also did a wonderful role. He was a competent actor and I feel its sad that we have not been able to see much of him for many years. He’s been more active in the field of direction though. As it is I love movies set in Goa and have thoroughly enjoyed movies set there.

Not many may be knowing that this movie was also remade in Telugu by the name Swapnalokam (1999) starring Jagapathi Babu.

Here is the plot of the movie:-

Sunil (Shah Rukh Khan) is woken up from his dream of marrying the girl he loves, Anna (Suchitra Krishnamurthy), by Sunil’s sister (Sadiya Siddiqui). Sunil is a happy-go-lucky scamp who loves music and is not interested in studies, which bothers his father, Vinayak (Anjan Srivastav). Sunil, Anna, and Chris (Deepak Tijori) are 3 members of a 6-person music band, who are looking to make it big. Anna rejoins the group after being away for a while, which makes Chris happy too, as he too loves Anna. After Anna reenters his life, Sunil begins to try and change his ways in order to get Anna to fall in love with him.

During a performance at a friend’s wedding, Sunil realizes that Anna and Chris have some chemistry between them. Sunil is devastated, so he decides to create a rift between Anna and Chris. Sunil eventually gets caught in his own web of lies. Anna, furious with Sunil for such a betrayal, slaps him and decides to never talk to Sunil ever after. Sunil is thrown out of the band for being a miscreant. However, as luck were to have it, fortune favours Sunil who saves the band from being heckled at a local club performance by putting on a stellar show, so the entire band forgives and forgets.

Meanwhile, Anna’s father has been giving thought to getting her settled in life and decides that Chris is worthy of the honour. He makes his intentions known to approach Chris’ parents with a proposal. However, Chris’ parents have other ideas and decide Chris’ marriage to their friend’s daughter. Anna and her family are dejected.

Sunil consoles Anna during this time and the tide slowly turns in his favour. Anna’s father, having realized that Sunil will love and take care of Anna, convinces Anna to marry Sunil. Sunil is overjoyed until he realizes Anna still loves Chris. Sunil decides to reunite the two and get them married. On the wedding day, as Chris and Anna are about to exchange rings, Chris’ ring slips out of his hand and rolls out of sight. Everybody starts searching for it. Sunil spots the ring but feigns ignorance, even as his younger sister gazes at him with a heavy heart. Eventually, Chris locates the ring and the couple gets married.

Just after the wedding, Sunil is shown sitting on the sidewalk, dejected and heartbroken. By happenstance, a random girl (Juhi Chawla in a guest appearance), who is lost and is seeking directions, approaches Sunil. Sometime later, Sunil and the girl are seen walking in the moonlight and talking merrily.

Anthony and Vasco, two criminals who are a part of the story, see Sunil with the new girl and break the fourth wall, saying that Sunil will be alright. The criminals hear the police siren and immediately scamper away as the credits roll.

If you’ve not watched the movie yet, do catch this feel good movie. It had some of the best performances and the late Renu Saluja had also edited it well. I heard sometime back that Shah Rukh Khan has bought the rights of the movie. Don’t know if he’s planning to remake it but its definitely one of his best and sincere performances. The movie was a sleeper hit and made more than double (nearly 5.5 crores) on the box office in those days.

The song’s lyrics have been very thoughtfully written by Majrooh Sultanpuri sahib and sung lovingly by the flavour of those days, Kumar Sanu. The combination of Majrooh Sahib with Jatin-Lalit was one of the top combinations for me in the 1990s. Just like the song, I pray that we never wake up from the suroor of good music we all live in all the time and keep singing songs of our love for music as well as each other.

Song – Ae Kaash Ke Ab Hosh Mein Hum Aane Na Paayen (Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa) (1994) Singer – Kumar Sanu, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Jatin Lalit

ae kaash ke hum
hosh mein ab aane na paayen
ae kaash ke hum
hosh mein ab aane na paayen

ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें

खिलती महकती
ये ज़ुल्फों की शाम
हँसते खनकते
ये होंठों के जाम
खिलती महकती
ये ज़ुल्फों की शाम
हँसते खनकते
ये होंठों के जाम
आ झूम के साज़ उठायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें

ला ला लाल्ला ला
लाल्ला ला ला ला
ला ला ला ला ल लाल्ल ला

हो बस अगर तुम हमारे सनम
हम तो सितारों पे रख दें कदम
हो बस अगर तुम हमारे सनम
हम तो सितारों पे रख दें कदम
सारा जहाँ भूल जायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is that time of the year again. Time to celebrate another landmark of this beloved blog by all the members who contribute to it. Congratulations to the blog, its members and readers for hitting the 15K landmark.

I tend to ‘wake up’ only during the celebrations, though I like to keep afoot of the blog, not as much as I used to. Time was when I was tethered to a chair and computer for eight hours a day when I was working. There were many hours to be whiled away at times and it was easy to read the blog more often. Now that I am retired and a new member of Grandparents Club, I find less time to sit at the laptop. I often read posts on my mobile and find it hard to post comments from there. Nevertheless, it is still my number two most visited blog. Number one is my own blog, sorry, heh heh.

From something that was once Atul ji’s hobby, posting a song a day, this blog has burgeoned into a treasure trove of information. Various contributors keep the blog humming and it now has two fathers, Atul ji has been joined by Sudhir ji. This makes it easier for the blog to keep growing. There are a number of regular contributors, Arunkumar ji Deshmukh is the Bhishm Pitamah of the blog. Nalini ji is passionate about the blog, commenting and writing posts. Sadanandji, Avinash ji, Nahm ji, Mahesh ji, Satyajit ji, Gajendraji, Satishji are some of the other stalwarts. Raja is a personal friend of mine as well as the co-mentor of the blog. Forgive me if I have forgotten the names of other contributors – my memory is shaky post-retirement. 🙂

What do I love most about this blog? Number one reason is the sheer amount of information I gather by being here. Number two is the consistency of high standards in keeping the posts original and error free. Number three is the liveliness of the blog, the constant refreshment of content.

Hindi film music is a vast ocean, no, it is more like the skies that are endless. Luckily for the lovers of this blog, there will always be new songs and new posts to keep us occupied.

Now about this song. When new movies are promoted on television, they are accompanied by one or two big songs from the film. It becomes the signature song for the movie. Hence we get to know the popular songs from each movie and hum it more often. Yet there are often hidden gems within the songs of each movie, less popular but more beautiful. We do not hear them unless we watch the movie and are struck by it or listen to the complete playlist. ‘Haasil’ has a signature song too, “Ankhen Bhi Hoti Hain Dil Ki Zubaan”. But I am struck more by this song – “Ab Ghar Aa Ja”, a classical number which plays in the background during a poignant passage in the film.

‘Haasil’ (2003) was directed by Tigamanshu Dhulia and featured Jimmy Shergill, Irfan Khan and Hrishita Bhatt. College politics and gang war in Allahabad form the backdrop in which Jimmy and Hrishita meet and fall in love. Unfortunately, Jimmy becomes involved in the gang wars between two student leaders and is forced to flee to Mumbai. But soon he realises that he cannot keep hiding and lose his girlfriend in the bargain. He decides to return to Allahabad and face the consequences.

This song plays when the hero is traveling back to Allahabad from Mumbai in a train. The picturisation is very apt, the hero is pensive as he misses his girl, also because he knows he is soon going face danger. His mood is reflected in this slow classical number.

This song will debut the movie ‘Haasil’ on the blog. If I am not mistaken, singer Javed Ali debuts on the blog too. I hope you will like the song as much as I do.

Hullo to Atuldom

November 2nd is the birthday of a dear Atulite. A person who is very very important for Atuldom turns a year younger today. Without him there would be a lot of stress and strain on our dear Atulji when it comes to handling all the farmaishes and contributions that we Atulites keep sending and expect instant posting on the blog.

I have met him only once for a few hours and since then have often taken the liberty to pick up the phone and put all kinds of requests -from trying to speed up posts getting to the blog to asking help when my son and daughter visited Delhi. And he has never said a “NO”. Thank you so much Sudhirji. You are a true Dillwala Dilliwala. Wish you a very very Happy Birthday. Hope you have lots of time to be the co-poster of the blog. Hope you are able to find rare and hitherto unheard songs for all our collective listening pleasure. Hope you are able to find songs that rekindle memory of the radio listening days. Hope all your series find appropriate songs and you never run out of Mohd. Rafi songs. 🙂

Incidentally November 2nd also happens to be birthday of another Dilliwaala, viz SRK. SRK- Badshah also goes by the names Rahul, King Khan and occasionally Om Kapoor – I mean Shahrukh Khan. So, he has been around since 1988 entertaining his fans first on television in the serials Circus, Fauji and Dil Dariya and then burst on to the Bollywood firmament with the Hema Malini directed “Dil Aashna Hai” and Raj Kanwar directed “Deewana” which got him the best debutant award in 1993.

And since then he hasn’t looked back winning hearts and awards in his journey of 30 years in the entertainment industry. He has worn the hats of producer, IPL team co-owner, actor with ease and also tried his hand at singing. He has tried portraying villainous, romantic and comic characters with success as also played the lead in movies where he is a hockey coach (Chak De! India) or a person with Asperger Syndrome (My Name Is Khan). He is a complete entertainment package and here is wishing him all the best in life.

It is very difficult to choose a song that will showcase SRK’s energy and SK’s love for music. So, I have selected an SRK song which is one I enjoy and hope Sudhirji also likes. It is from a 21-year-old movie directed by Aziz Mirza- Yes Boss. It had Juhi Chawla and Aditya Pancholi as co-stars for SRK with Ashok Saraf, Johnny Lever, Gulshan Grover and Kashmira Shah in supporting roles. The song is an improvisation of a qawwali (my feeling). It is at a party hosted by Aditya Pancholi who runs an Ad agency and has his roving eye on all the models employed there. Juhi is also a model who is on his radar but SRK has taken it upon himself to shield her and has Johnny Lever and Ashok Saraf assisting him in his mission “shield a drunk Juhi from the BOSS”.

The song was written by Javed Akhtar, Jatin- Lalit were the music directors and Abhijeet Bhattacharya (was his birthday on October 30th, wishing him too although a little late)

Once again a very Happy Birthday to our Sudhirji.


Song-Jaata hai tu kahaan (Yes Boss)(1997) Singer-Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-Jatin Lalit
Chorus

Lyrics

Chak chak

duniya ke bade tedhe medhe raaste
khatre hi khatre hain tere vaaste
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan

duniya mein aajkal
aisi bhi loot hai
kehne ko pyaar hai
samjho toh jhoothh hai
dekh tu lutne laga
tera haath hai kis ke haathon mein
jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan

shaa la lalaa

pyar ka karte hain jo shor
dhyaan hai tera jin ki oar
aa main bataaoon kaun hain woh
raat mein daaku din mein chor
jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan

haath main jodoon tore
padoon main balma tore painyaan
chhod ke tu mohe na ja
karoon main binti more sainyaan
ho sun le mori araj sajanwa
poochhe tohse mora manwa
o jaane waale ye to bata,
jaane waale ye to bata
jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan

jaane tu jo baat kahoon main ishaaron mein
haan ishaaron mein
bikte hain imaan yahaan baazaaron mein
baazaaron mein
anjaane
tu na jaane
koyi jaal phaila teri raahon mein hai
koyi baat hai jo meri baaton mein hai
tu ye jaan le baaton baaton mein
jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan

faisla tujhko aaj karna hai
doob jaana hai ya ubharna hai
uss taraf jhoothh hai dikhaawa hai
iss taraf pyaar ka bulaawa hai
uss taraf laalachi nigaahein hain
iss taraf mere dil ki raahein hain
jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan
sun pyaare

duniya ke bade tedhe medhe raaste
khatre hi khatre hain tere vaaste

jaata hai tu kahaan
are re re re jaata hai tu kahaan
re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan

Hullo to all in Atuldom

26th October is a special day in my life. It is the birthdate of two people who are very important to me personally. One was my first playmate, friend etc… my sister- a person who I cannot live with and without. I cannot live with her as she is in Mumbai but then both my sisters are in Mumbai and both are important for me forever; and it is the birthday of one of them.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Wishing all a very Happy 70th INDEPENDENCE DAY. We step into our 71st year of Independence.

As children, we have been inculcated with a sense of patriotism. My school had a practice of hoisting the National Flag at a particular hour. Later in my life I was given to understand that this practise is governed by the hour the flag is hoisted in the nation’s capital Delhi- it seems that the flag has to be hoisted first in Delhi at the Red Fort and then the nation follows. I would love to know if what I learnt is right or wrong.

Everywhere we see people are doing a recap or recount of all the things that occurred in the last year. There are people who are doing count down of the songs that released in the year. There are others who are posting photos of the year that was, on the friendly social networking sites. (In this we are aided by the site itself in choosing random photos that was published by us through the year). So I thought let me also see how the year was for me.

The purists among music lovers often like to keep a cut-off for their listening habits. ‘I don’t listen to songs later than this year,’ they often say. I don’t disagree with those cut-offs. There are times when we just don’t want to listen to the cacophony that our music often descends to. But then, like a proverbial ‘keechad me kamal’ a beautiful song pops up among all this noise. The sufiana songs from the present times are meaningful and pleasing to the ear. The songs written by Gulzar and Javed Akhtar, set to tunes by AR Rahman are beautiful and worth listening to again and again.

Duniyaa jise kehati hai jaadoo ka khilonaa hai
Mil jaaye to mitti hai kho jaaye to sonaa hai

This couplet of a ghazal written by Nida Fazli, the modernist Urdu poet and writer, made him famous among mushaira goers. Later this full ghazal was sung by Jagjit Singh and Chitra Singh sometime in late 70s bringing Nida Fazli in the limelight in a wider canvass including Hindi film industry.
