Hullo Atuldom

Back to writing after a gap of 3 weeks. Lovely three weeks. Spent among the hills of North- East India and South India. Must thank my nephew for insisting that I accompany them. If the Himalayas and its snow-clad peaks are a heavenly sight so are the mountain ranges of the Nilgiris in the south – the common feature being acres of tea gardens. For the second weekend outing to the Nilgiris, I hold my son and niece responsible.

Trust humans to spoil a good thing. Where there was a lot of discipline among the locals at both places; tourists have ruined Ooty as much as say Lonavla, Khandala or Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra. Thankfully Sikkim has not faced much tourist onslaught and so is much cleaner. The air in these hill stations are so pollution free one doesn’t feel like returning to pavilion and the reality of daily routine. I am sure our Sadanand ji will be nodding in agreement being an avid traveller and having visited many such pristine locations. Hope I am right?

More about my travels some other time, I will get straight to the topic of this post.

This post is to wish the lady with the dazzling smile a very happy birthday. Unbelievable that she turned 51 yesterday. The dancer who out-dances her co-star without meaning to and effortlessly at that. But she is not all song and dance only; she is great in exhibiting all emotions with her eyes, face and voice. Just like the heroines of yesteryear, specially Madhubala, with whom she used to be constantly compared. Yes yes. I am speaking of Madhuri Dixit (now Nene). Having made her debut in movies through the 1984 Rajshri Productions ‘Abodh’ and tasting success with ‘Tezaab’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Tridev’, etc. she made a place for herself among the top-ranked heroines of Bollywood. Her teaming with Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Jackie Shroff (all the reigning stars of that period) was well received by the audiences. In the later half of the 90s she also teamed successfully with the 3Khans. She was lucky to have roles written specially for her as in Prakash Jha’s ‘Mrityudand’ and MF Hussain’s ‘Gaja Gamini’.

As much as I love Madhuri and her movies with their songs and dances, there are some songs of her’s which I don’t approve of. For example, her song in the movie ‘Anjaam’ – “Athraa Baras Ki Kunwaari Kali Thi. . . Choodi Tooti Chane Ke Khet Mein” or the song from ‘Khalnayak’ – “Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai”; and then there is ‘Mera Piya Ghar Aaya O Ram ji” in ‘Yaarana’ or even “Dhak Dhak Karne Laga” from ‘Beta’. All these songs and some more of that type, which made Madhuri Dixit a dancing-star, are full of double meanings and were lapped up by the public. But there also is a greater number of Madhuri songs which are just as popular and have more ‘decent’ lyrics. For example, “Didi Tera Devar Deewana”, and her songs from ‘Devadas’, ‘Saajan’, ‘Sangeet’ etc. (no, I am not going to list her filmography here 🙂 ). The song with this post is one such song.

It is from Rajkumar Santoshi’s 2000 release ‘Pukaar’ (making a debut on the blog).  The main cast of this film is Madhuri with Anil Kapoor and Namrata Shirodkar and a supporting cast of Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Rohini Hattangadi, KD Chandran, Neeraj Vora, Danny and Prabhu Deva (just for a song). It is a well-made film based on espionage in the army and had a love triangle added for spice which gives the central characters a lot of scope to showcase their ‘sacrificing attitudes’. The songs are penned by Javed Akhtar and AR Rehman is the composer. This song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Kavita Krishnamurty. It is a stage show to celebrate some event in the army cantonment. The song shows Madhuri decently matching steps to Prabhu Deva’s vigorous dance. Anil Kapoor, Namrata and the other members of the cast are in the audience which join in towards the song’s climax.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Madhuri!

hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is a visual treat. It is a fun song. It is a song where-in the dancer/ artist is a choreographer’s delight. She follows all instructions and executes them fabulously. It is also a comic delight, the facial expression etc. It is from a 1987 movie which hitherto has only one song representing it on the blog. That song was posted on march 28th 2013 and was a contribution by Guruji alias encyclopaedia of the blog. .

Now today (17 january 2018) I am revisiting the movie because it happens to be the 73rd birthday of the script writer of this movie. This was the last movie for which he teamed up with his partner Salim Khan. He worked as a team with Salim Khan for a period of about twelve years and approx. 24 films. He is a Padmashri & Padma Bhushan, as well as a Sahitya Akademi and National Film award (5 times) winner. His father was an Urdu poet and lyricist in Bollywood. He was initially married to famous child star of the 60s- Honey Irani and later to another talented actress- Shabana Azmi. He is father to super talented children Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar. Today (17 january 2018) is the birthdate of Jaaved Akhtar – son of Jan Nisar Akhtar. In addition to being a script writer he also is a lyricist which first came into public knowledge when he wrote songs for Yash Chopra’s “Silsila”.

“Mr. India” was a fantasy film which is a favourite with children of all times. It was directed by Shekhar Kapoor and written by Salim- Jaaved. Sridevi showed she had comic talent specially in the scene where she parodies Charles Chaplin. The dozen odd children were a treat for sore eyes. Amrish Puri as Mogambo is considered to be one of the best villains of Bollywood history. And as for Anil Kapoor the movie showed he was more an actor -a lambi-race ka ghoda as the term goes in Hindustani. There are stories about how Salim-Javed read the story to the superstars Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan and how they turned it down as they couldn’t relate to the concept of aninvisible man; but we will not think of that here.

Let us just sit back and enjoyyyyyyy this wonderful – comical- delightful song. I have heard in an interview by either the singer or the writer about how they wrote the lyrics of the initial part of the song. It seems they were sitting in a brain storming session- the director, music directors (Laxmi- Pyare), Kavitha Krishnamurthy etc etc. And each one gave a word or two, some sensible and some non-sensible. How else does one explain the words – hingsiki and why should I c Lucy, hassi tussi & lassi pisi follow each other and where did Hong Kong, King Kong, Ping Pong and Mombasa come from. But all-in-all a laugh riot.

Thank you, Jaaved Akhtar, and may we have more such songs from your pen.

Today’s song is from a comparatively new film ‘Lagaan’ (2001). The song,written by Javed Akhtar and composed by AR Rahman, is sung by 5 singers, viz. Alka Yagnik, Shaan, Shankar Mahadevan, Sukhwinder Singh and Udit Narayan. Why do I feel some readers are smiling after reading my above sentence calling ‘Lagaan’ as a new film ? As compared to what my forte has been so far (old films from 1930s to 1970), ‘Lagaan’ IS a comparatively new film. . . at least for me !

I have always believed that there are no boundaries for good films and good music. Fortunately, even today, we still get occasional good films. Of course everybody’s views may be different on this issue. I found that today, the films have better technical values, a bigger canvas and they try to cater to the Indian as well as non Indian audience, since nowadays most big budget films are shown outside India, where they are in big demand.

I am a great fan of Aamir Khan – the Actor. As a person, I don’t like his views, quotes and antics, but I respect his dedication to the roles he does in his films. Despite so many years, he has retained his quality of acting, involvement and his urge to excel and be a different actor. That is why, probably, he chooses to do fewer films than his other contemporaries. May be he believes that “Quantity is always at the cost of quality” !

When Ashutosh Govarikar, the director of ‘Lagaan’, first wrote the film script of ‘Lagaan’, he had decided that only Aamir khan is fit to do the role of Bhuvan. However, after hearing the script, Aamir Khan flatly refused to do the film. He told Ashutosh, “You have broken every rule of Hindi film making in this script (there are 5 such rules). There is a great risk in the film. Dont count me in this “.

Undeterred, Ashutosh made another draft, along with some dialogues. It took him one year. Then he contacted Aamir again, “I have a fresh script”. Aamir was ready to listen, but he asked “I hope it is not the same one having cricket and lagaan ?”  Ashutosh confirmed it was the same. Aamir said, “Then I don’t want to waste 3 hours of mine and yours. Forget it.” When Ashutosh insisted as a friend, Aamir gave him time. . . after one month.

After hearing the revised script, Aamir seemed excited and said, “Yes, I will do this film.”  Then the question came about producer. They went to many producers, but none was ready to do this film. One producer suggested, “In the end show that Bhuvan stabs Captain Russel with a stump, after the match.”  Ashutosh left his place without even responding. Finally they decided that the film has to be produced by Aamir himself. Aamir floated a company – Aamir Khan Productions Pvt Ltd. He and Mansoor Khan produced the film. This was probably the first time when a production company was formed for a script. Normally first the company is formed and the script comes later.

Some critics tried to claim that the ‘Lagaan’ theme is a copy or inspired from ‘Naya Daur’ (1957). Like Shankar in ‘Naya Daur’, Bhuvan also accepts the challenge inspite of villagers’ opposition. Like Rajni,  Gauri supports Bhuvan. Ajit, the one sided lover of Rajni, becomes hero’s enemy in ‘Naya Daur’. In ‘Lagaan’, Yashpal Sharma (Lakha) loves Gauri and becomes Bhuvan’s enemy etc. They showed the film to BR Chopra. He was terribly impressed and immediately wrote a letter to them. He said “In ‘Naya Daur’ the theme was ‘Man v/s Machine’. In your film the theme is ‘Man v/s the Oppressor”. It is totally different, no similarity at all. It is an independent excellent story.”

Ashutosh was very clear in his approach. The film was NOT on cricket. It was on an unjustified taxation and the villagers’ fight against it. ‘Fight for survival’ was the principle here. Villagers were unhappy as there were no rains and then this double Lagaan (taxation) came. The film showed how people get ready to fight the injustice. Even in the advertisements of the film, cricket was never mentioned initially.

The film created records in India as well as abroad. Whenever the film was shown in any International Film Festival and to the Oscar dignitaries, distributors used to throng for rights. The film was dubbed in French and Italian. It became the first Hindi film to be shown in Sweden, Finland and Brazil. The population in those countries did not even know what was the game of cricket. What appealed to them was the villager’s fight against injustice. In few countries just before the film. the general rules of cricket were shown to the audience.

The cast of the film is Aamir Khan, Gracy Singh, Suhasini Mulay, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Raghuveer Yadav, Rachel Shelley, Paul Blackthorne etc. Before the film was released anywhere, it was first shown to people of Bhuj, where it was shot, as per Aamir’s promise. It was released in United Kingdom, China, Italy, France, USA, Germany, Japan, Malaysia, Hong kong, the middle east and many other countries. In India, it was released on 15-6-2001, along with its premiere in UK. With a budget of Rs 250 million, it grossed 700  million rupees in its first week itself.

I liked this movie very much, like many other Aamir Khan films. I am not giving its story which is too well known. it was given by our own Nahm ji when she discussed its first song on this blog some time back. By coincidence, Peevesie’s Dad ji posted the second song of this film, coinciding with our young member and his daughter Peevesie’s birthday on Saturday, the 23rd December. Today’s song is the 3rd song from the film. The film has 7 songs and one dance instrumental piece. All songs are written by Javed Akhtar and composed by AR Rahman.

The situation of this song, which is a song from film’s opening scenes, is that villagers are worried as there are no rains for a long time. Suddenly, dark black clouds gather over the skies, making them feel that rains will come anytime now. They start celebrations and sing this song. But Alas ! the black clouds disappear as suddenly as they had come and gloom spreads over the village again. Just watch the feelings on the faces of the villagers before and after the cloud entry and exit. Enjoyable song. . . and the film !

23rd Dec…

One of the most Memorable day in my life. That day my bundle of joy was born. A sweet little baby. Hence everybody called her sweety. I still remember lot of her child hood mannerisms…My son had stiff resistance to drinking milk. But, my daughter, at the age of say 6 months …the moment she hears the activities of milk preparing will rush to the pillow and lie down face up to be ready for drinking milk…

Till she joined the pre-nursery she didn’t utter a word. But she was able to communicate exactly what she wanted without even uttering a word.

Once she joined school she started talking..and talking..and talking…

As a child the bonhomie between brother and sister was something special. something to be marked. something to be cherished. Even now I think of those days …I can only see The beautiful baby in a blue printed frock holding the fingers of her brother and moving around.

The first day, when we shifted our house from Dahisar to Deonar, is still fresh in my mind. My son a go getter (he was just 4-year-old at that time), went out and made friends with other children of the society in 10 minutes. Within no time he brought them home to show them his kid-sister as if she was a trophy to be displayed to them ..as if she was an inseparable part of his self..

When she was a baby her activities started at mid night and she would be full of energy till 3AM and 4am…And the poor me has to spend sleepless nights to take care of her. Infact till she reached her age of 3 I did not get to sleep properly at nights…

There are some unforgettable incidents during her childhood..

We were traveling from Chennai to Bangalore after my brother’s marriage. My daughter was just 10 months old, Due to some confusion we arrived say by 10.30 at station thinking 11.30 is the departure time. But the actual departure time was 10.45, my Mother-in-law was carrying my daughter & my wife was taking care of the son and children’s bag. I was carrying other luggage. I had told the coach no was S4….We were all running towards the coach since it was last minute. We all got in into the coach and suddenly I saw my mother-in-law & daughter were missing. I checked inside and outside. No signs, I saw the TTE standing outside and requested him to delay the train for some time since my baby is missing. By the time two whistles were blown. He told he is helpless. I was getting restless. My son started crying loudly. I looked here and there not knowing what to do. What if all of us get down and they are in some other compartment. What if we travel thinking they are in the train but they have not boarded. The stories of eunuch taking away the babies went in to my thoughts and I felt a cold wave getting in to my body. I did only thing I knew. Pray Pray. Then all of a sudden, I saw my mother-in-law getting down with the baby from S6 all pareshan. I pulled her hugged the baby and dragged her in to S4 to breathe a sigh of relief…and within seconds the train left…

And next episode is when she was three-year-old. She was sick and she was attended by a doctor next door who had his clinic across the road. She was having dysentery and vomiting. She did not get well even after two days. On a Saturday afternoon my wife went to the doctor’s house (just net door) and requested him see the baby. He told nothing to worry and that he would see her at 6 PM in his consulting room. At 6 Pm we carried her weak body to the doctor. There he told me that the situation is serious and I had to admit her to some hospital. The anger in me wanted to kill him. But I thought first things first. To admit her in hospital some money was required. Those days there were no ATMs. There was not much money in hand. I was helpless. I prayed and miraculously I saw my in-laws walking in to my house on their return from New Mumbai just to say a hello !

They had some money and we admitted her to a nearby hospital. The doctor had to come from Sion through the traffic jams. Finally, he arrived by 8 PM, administered some injections and drips. I was in hospital throughout the night praying. And by morning she was all right. Thank God again..

She was bindass or bold as a child…During the stage functions in the society she would pick up the microphone and would narrate stories\ jokes etc… The previous day we had cracked an adult joke between me and my brother. She was around but considering her age we thought she would not understand. But to our astonishment she picked up the mike and narrated the joke to all where the gathering consisting of elders\ youngsters and children didn’t know what to do. I just hid myself somewhere…

I am describing a person who calls herself Peevesie in Atuldom. I spoke about her fearlessness in getting on the stage and facing an audience. There was one more such instance when she was in class 3 or 4. The apartment that we lived in had this custom of celebrating January 26th over two days. There is a pooja followed by some cultural show where in kids of the apartment presented their talent. At that point of time she was not yet a trained dancer but she choreographed and performed, that year’s favourite song (to her), with nearly the same steps that were in the movie. That is when we thought we should train her formally. And she was earnest about it till she found she had to choose between academics and dance. But even now she doesn’t miss an opportunity to dance.

She was an intelligent and hardworking student. My cupboard is full of certificates, trophies of various awards she got during the college….

My greatest moment was when she got admission in the prestigious NID..I was very happy..
The rest is not history but her future. God bless her. I wish her all the best. I love her . miss her keep dancing dear.

Here is the song that I was talking of.


Song-Raadha kaise na jaley (Lagaan)(2001) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Udit Narayan, Vaishaali, Lyrics-Javed Akhtar, MD-A R Rahman

Lyrics(Provided by Peevesie’s mom)

madhuban mein jo kanhaiya kisi gopi se miley
kabhi muskaaye kabhi chhede
kabhi baat karey
raadha kaise na jaley
raadha kaise na jaley
aag tan man mein lagey
raadha kaise na jaley
raadha kaise na jaley
madhuban mein bhale kaanha kisi gopi se miley
man mein toh raadha ke hi prem ke hain phool khiley
kis liye raadha jale

hoy
kis liye radha jale
hoy
bina soche samjhe
hoy
kis liye raadha jale
kis liye radha jale

ho o o
gopiyaan taare hain
chaand hai raadha
phir kyun hai usko
biswaas aadha
ho o o
gopiyaan taare hain
chaand hai raadha
phir kyun hai usko
biswaas aadha

kaanhaji ka jo sada idhar udhar dhyaan rahe
raadha bechaari ko phir apne pe kya maan rahe
gopiyaan aani jaani hain
raadha toh man ki raani hai
gopiyaan aani jaani hain
raadha toh man ki raani hai
saanjh sakhaare jamuna kinaare
raadha raadha hi kaanha pukaare

oy hoy oy hoy
baahon ke haar jo daale koi kaanha ke galey
raadha kaise na jaley
raadha kaise na jaley

aag tan man mein lage
raadha kaise na jaley
raadha kaise na jaley

na dhir dhin na dhir dhin dhina
ho o o
na dhir dhin na dhir dhin dhina
ho o o
na dhir dhin na dhir dhin dhina
ho o o
na dhir dhin na dhir dhin dhina
ho o o

man mein hai raadhe ko kaanha jo basaaye
toh kaanha kaahe ko usey na bataaye
prem ki apni alag boli alag bhaasa hai
baat nainon se ho
kaanha ki yahi aasa hai

kaanha ki yeh jo naina hain
chheene gopiyon ki chaina hai
kaanha ki yeh jo naina hain
chheene gopiyon ki chaina hai

mili najariya hui baawariya
gori gori si koi gujariya
kaanha ka pyaar kisi gopi ke man mein jo paley
kis liye raadha jaley
raadha jaley
raadha jaley

raadha kaise na jaley

kisliye raadha jaley
raadha kaise na jaley
kis liye raadha jaley
kis liye raadha jaley

raadha kaise na jaley
kisliye raadha jaley
kis liye raadha jaley

aaaaaa aaaaaa

raadha kaise na jaley
raadha kaise na jaley
raadha kaise na jaley

Hullo to all in Atuldom

On this blog, Atul has a page for birthdays of various Hindi film artistes. He has meticulously kept track of these dates and makes it a point, as much as possible, to post a song honouring the artiste on the concerned date. That is like a doctor treating his patients.

Today , the 20th of June, is a special day for us Atulites.

What’s so special about it, you ask?

Well, he who celebrates the birthdays of so many artistes here (and has an anniversary page on the blog) just happens to have been born on this date, a few summers ago.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 9
——————————————————————–

I am an Atulite and I am proud of it. It is an honor to be associated with a blog that drips pure love of music. Like almost all Indians I love Hindi film music. But I cannot claim to be knowledgeable about it. I do know many songs but that is not a qualification. There are thousands of songs out there, many of which have fallen into oblivion. It is the die-hard music lovers that keep track of these songs and chase them with an assiduity that would make Sherlock Holmes feel jealous.

I am amazed when some of my friends are able to name the movie, singer, lyricist and music director as soon as the song is mentioned. Some Atulites could also tell you charming little stories behind the making of each song. Delving here, I have discovered gorgeous songs that not much known but are as precious as Koh-i-Noor.

18th September 2015 is the birthday of Kaifi and Shaukat Azmi’s daughter Shabana Azmi. She turns 66 on this day.

There are many children who are known as so-and-so’s child and there are many children who make a place for themselves in public eye and then the parents are called so-and-so’s parents. That means Shabana Azmi’s Pehchaan need not be as Kaifi and Shaukat Azmi’s daughter. She is a persona by herself. Being the poet’s daughter or the veteran stage actress’s daughter only explains her artistic leanings.

‘Mammo’ (1994), ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996) and ‘Zubeida’ (2OO1) were films of Muslim trilogy directed by Shyam Bengal. The main feature of these three films was that they were all woman oriented films based on real life stories. These films belonged to what is labelled as parallel cinemas. I have watched all the three films. Why these films are called trilogy? Let us go through in brief, the stories of each of the main characters in these films.
