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.

And, just like a doctor having his own turn at being unwell, today it is Atul’s turn to have his own birthday celebrated, instead of celebrating others. And it is our turn to do the celebration!

This is what our own Rajaji had written last year on this date that happens to be our very own Karta Dharta’s birthdate.

Taking a risk of being labelled a repeater or a copy-cat I must reiterate what has been said before, at various places, on this blog… “I shudder whenever I think as to how Atul ji has managed all these years without an iota of exhaustion in pursuing the ‘Project ASAD’.” This was Sadanandji’s comment on Rajaji’s post last year. I also have thoughts similar to Sadanandji. 😊

Guruji/ Arunji- our very own encyclopaedia came up with a superb poem on Atulji and without his permission I am reproducing it here (hope he doesn’t mind)

suno ji suno,
yeh hai mera pyara
subka dil lubhanewala,
Ganewala, Ranchiwala……..1

ye koi khel nahi hai
itna aasan nahi hai
yadein taaza karnewala
Gaanewala, Ranchwala…….2

duniya isko dekh rahi hai
gaane sunke khoj rahi hai
hai bhala kaun ye dilwala
Gaanewala, Ranchiwala……3

iske pyar mein doobi duniya
isko chaahe saari duniya
kahan hai pyaare geetonwala
Gaanewala, Ranchiwala…..4

geeton ki iss yatra mein
hum sab hai iske saathi
sub ko saath lenewala
Gaanewala, Ranchiwala…..5

nayak ho to aisa dilwala
khushiyan apni baatnewala
har yaatri ko chahnewala
Gaanewala, Ranchiwala…..6

sab ke dil mein ek hi naara
neta ho to aisa pyaraa
Atul ji jaisa bade dilwala
Gaanewala, Ranchiwala…..7

Though I am not as fortunate as our Rajaji to know Atulji from time immemorial I am lucky enough to have spoken to him over this last 4-5 years and have some knowledge about him through his own writings on the blog… his dedication to the blog, his pets and family. I like the way he talks about his pets and the way they wake him early so that they also get time with him before he leaves for work or sits down to write posts for us. He has never complained (like I have on many occasions) about the lack of electricity or internet connections. He has gone beyond his own target of posting a set number of songs and today he himself has 10091 posts and has been magnanimous in allowing we hijackers some of our own posts too.

So, repeating everything I said last year – May God give Atulji health, peace of mind, lots of time and good infrastructural support in the form of unending internet and electrical connections. And we will not mind him being absent from the blog when his family is around as they are more entitled to his time. And hope he doesn’t mind us pestering him with our farmaishes. Here is hoping he gives us many opportunities to celebrate and we will keep presenting him with lovely songs.

Since ours is a primarily a blog fed by Bollywood here is a song which celebrates the various awards functions that happen every year. It is a party song from “Om Shanti Om” (2007). It is written by Javed Akhtar and has music by Vishal (Dadlani) and Shekhar (Ravjiani). The movie was co-written and directed by Farha Khan. The uniqueness of the movie is that more than 42 well known movie stars appear in the course of the movie. Today’s song itself has about 30 stars – Rani Mukherjee, Zayed Khan, Vidya Balan, Jeetendra, Tushar Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Shilpa Shetty, Dharamendra, Shabana Azmi, Urmilla Matondkar, Karisma Kapoor, Arbaaz Khan, Malaika Arora, Dino Morea, Amrita Arora, Juhi Chawla, Aftab Shivdasani, Tabu,Govinda, Mithun Chakravarty, Kajol, Bobby Deol, Preity Zinta, Rekha, Riteish Deshmukh, Salman Khan,Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Lara Dutta, Suneil Shetty, with Arjun Rampal- a character in the film- making an appearance towards the end of the song. And of course, there is Shahrukh Khan in the film present in every frame of the song. Udit Narayan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shreya Ghoshal, Shaan, Rahul Saxena are the playback singers. I hope this is a good party song for the occasion. It stands for all the Deewangi that this blog has generated among its followers.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Atulji.

Song – Dekho Dekho Hai Shaam Badi Deewaani (Om Shanti Om) (2007) Singers – Udit Narayan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shreya Ghoshal, Shaan, Rahul Saxena , Lyrics – Javed Akhtar, MD – Vishal – Shekhar

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.

Yes, today is the birthday of Atul, the creator of this much-loved, eponymously named, blog. Hai na special day?

So Atul, let me start this post by wishing you a very very happy birthday and many many happy ones to come!

Hmm….

I have a confession to make. Something I am somewhat ashamed about.

In all these years, I have always remembered some dates. I’ve always remembered Rafisaab’s birth and death anniversary dates, for example. And Sahir’s.

I’ve always remembered this blog’s birthday.

And I’ve always remembered Atul’s birthday.

That is, until this time.

This time, somehow it just slipped my mind. Of late, I’ve been very forgetful, I’ve been making silly mistakes. Not just silly, even costly ones. Recently I booked flight tickets for wrong dates – and then, on realizing this, had to buy new tickets again for the right dates. I lost all the money on the earlier-booked tickets (it was one of those non-refundable types) – a sheer waste. But it was entirely my fault because I had not been careful enough to check, while booking.

Anyway, back on topic. I’d lost track that we were approaching 20th June, i.e, Atul’s birthday.

Luckily Arunji reminded me of this a couple of days ago, in case I wanted to write a post on the occasion. Of course, I did! So thank you, Arunji, for the reminder!

Atul, I’ve written many posts here over the years about you, the blog, how we met, the cricket forum etc – I will spare the readers the ordeal of having to go through all of that again. 🙂

I will say one thing though – you are one of a very rare breed of persons and I consider myself privileged to know you.

This blog is probably the best embodiment of the various qualities you possess in ample measure.

And what are these qualities?

First, dedication and discipline. It’s not very difficult to start a blog – many people do it out of initial enthusiasm. It’s MUCH more difficult to keep it going. That explains why most blogs become like inactive bank accounts.

But this blog is going on for almost 9 years now. And how! Multiple updates every single day. Is this possible at all without absolute dedication to the task? And without a totally disciplined approach? I don’t think so.

Second, thoroughness. Whatever you do, you do it “poore dil-o-dimaag se”. No half-measures. Thoroughly professional approach. With great attention to detail.

Remember I’d asked jokingly in a previous post “are you sure you are Indian? 🙂 That’s because Indians are notorious for taking the easy way out, without putting in the hard work to do a high-quality job. Jaise taise ho jaana chaahiye. Copy karo kahin aur se, jugaad karo, kuchh bhi karo, bas ho jaana chaahiye.

That explains why there are so many me-too lyrics sites out there on the net. Mistakes on one get propagated shamelessly onto the others. But this blog? No compromises. You take extra effort to ensure every bit of detail is accurate, you listen to (sometimes scarcely audible) audio repeatedly trying to nail it down. That’s dedication, for sure – but it’s also thoroughness.

Third, respect & humility. Again here, I use the blog as an example. Over the years, many have joined the blog bandwagon. Not just as readers, but also as contributors in different capacities. We all love this blog and are happy to be part of its growth.

As creator of the blog, you could very easily have taken a superior position on this – after all, it is your blog. But you’ve embraced everyone warmly, without any ego and showing respect to one and all. That has helped everyone feel that it is not one person’s blog, it is OUR blog, our COLLECTIVE blog. We all feel part of this Atulite family, fiercely proud of the blog.

Also, you don’t claim knowledge as ultimate authority on a topic on the blog. You’re happy to admit you don’t know a detail, or you might be wrong. After all, that’s how we learn more. That’s a sign of humility, something I value.

Fourth, a sense of humour. Another thing I like a lot. This is something I realized long back, even before the blog came into existence. Remember those one-liners you used to come up with on our cricket forum, which I gave a name – Atulism? Well, you continue with those on the blog here. Which is one reason your posts are fun to read. There’s invariably the odd Atulism in there, even if you might not realize it yourself. 🙂

Fifth, eagerness to learn and improve. I touched on this earlier but I want to mention this separately too. I remember the days before you started blogging. It was new territory for you – but you plunged into it, learning wordpress features, experimenting with it, adding various widgets and all that. You’ve been constantly looking at ways to improve the blog –I’ve been witness to every single one of the improvements on the blog since its inception.

Each one has raised the bar that much more.

I can go on – and talk about more qualities, like your love for animals, and so on. But for now, I will stop here and move on to the song for today.

I was wondering which song to pick. And then remembered that, a couple of months ago, you had sent me a request to post “neela aasmaan” from Silsila (1981) here. It is the only remaining song from this film to be posted here, and you wanted to get it Yippeeed.

You’d told me to do it at my convenience – and, to be honest, it had slipped my mind. (I told you, I’ve become very forgetful of late).

Anyway, I remembered it just now, so I decided I’d fulfil this request, so that we have a birthday post for you AND a Yippeeed song.

So here is “neela aasmaan”.

This is my third Silsila song on the blog. I’d earlier posted “dekha ek khwab” and “pehli pehli baar”.

All the songs of Silsila are quite well-known. The film itself didn’t do too well on release – at least not as well as anticipated. It was a much-publicised and eagerly awaited film at the time, given its cast and storyline.

First, Jaya Bachchan was returning to acting. She had “retired” for a bit but had been persuaded to return for this film.

Then, the Amitabh-Rekha rumours. They were at their height at this time, and so a film with Amitabh, Rekha and Jaya was bound to kindle curiosity amongst film lovers.

Then, the storyline. In this film, though Amitabh marries Jaya (due to circumstances, not out of love), he still carries a torch for Rekha, who he had loved before marriage. He had never got over it. Given the rumours, this seemed to many to be too close to real life, adding to spice for the film.

Inspite of all this going for it, the film didn’t do too well at the box-office. More recently, it has probably gained some sort of iconic status but at that time, it got mixed reviews. I didn’t see it then – I got to see it much later. But I remember some people telling me at that time that they didn’t like the “rang barse” scene at all. Society then (probably even now) didn’t take too kindly to situations where a man is openly and publicly flirting with his friend’s wife, even if he’s got the excuse of being under the influence of bhang.

But, leaving all that aside, and looking at the songs alone, I think Silsila’s music scores. Those were not the greatest of times for HFM – especially if you’re looking for melody. In that relative desert, Silsila stands out as an oasis. Shiv-Hari (Shiv Kumar Sharma – Hariprasad Chaurasia) brought their individual brilliance together to the table,to compose some very pleasant tunes.

“Neela aasmaan” is a multiple version song. The male version, sung by Amitabh, is during happier times, when he and Rekha are romancing. The female version, sung by Lata and picturised on Rekha, is her response to the shocking news of Amitabh’s marriage. Her whole world has turned upside down at this news.

In those days, Amitabh used to try his hand at singing. He was such a big star that the audience would lap up anything he did. His song “mere paas aao mere doston” for Mr. Natwarlal (1979) was very popular. As was “mere angne mein” from Laawaris (1981). His rendition of “neela aasmaan” was popular in its own way.

I’ve heard this song many times but till today I had not quite paid much attention to the lyrics. Only when I was noting down the lyrics for this post, I realize that they are quite nice, especially the Lata version. This was Javed Akhtar, writing lyrics for the first time in films. Sahir, otherwise the Chopra family regular, had passed away in 1980.

With that, I leave you to listen to this song – both versions. Personally I prefer the Lata version.

Once more, wish you a very happy birthday, Atul. This film can now be treated as Yippeeed.

🙂

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.

It is all kudos to Atul who has, with his magnetic personality, been able to draw so many music lovers into a tight community called Atulites. Congratulations to Atul for the personal landmark of 10000 individual postings. I know the people here, and I know this is merely a stepping stone for many more such achievements.

I have sneaked in newer songs on the blog, often from the current year, to even out the pre-70s bias that this blog has. It is a bias that is perfectly understandable if you listen to the quality of early songs. Nothing that is created now comes close to the kind of music that was once created. Yet, some of the newer songs have a beautiful melody that lingers in your mind.

A little while back some of my friends played a game on facebook where you had to mention the movie you liked best from the year you were born till the current time. Almost all my friends felt they would not be able to name a movie after the 80s. Surprisingly, there was at least one movie per year that qualified to be listed as a good movie. Good movies are still being made and nice music is still being composed. We still have singers who bring a lot of feeling to their songs and lyrics that convey a depth of feeling.

‘Wake Up Sid’ is a 2009 movie starring Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma. It is an odd pair. Ranbir Kapoor is a popular sweetheart and Konkana is an art house favorite. Yet they came together in this quirky film that worked on many levels. As the title of the movie shows, it is primarily about a spoilt rich boy who learns to make his way in the world. It is also about a small town girl who learns how to survive in a big city. Even though she is very sure of what she wants in life, she finds it hard to reconcile with the fact that she has fallen for a younger man.

Time was when songs were sung by the hero and heroine running around in pleasant locales. Now cinema has taken a more realistic turn and songs are more often in the background, depicting the mood of actors. This song is also played in background and has the same feel as a song sung by a wandering mendicant in earlier films.


Song – O Re Manwa Tu To Baawra Hai (Wake Up Sid) (2009) Singers – Kavita Seth, Amitabh Bhattacharya, Lyrics – Javed Akhtar, MD – Shankar Ehsaan Loy
Chorus 

Lyrics

o re manwa tu toh baawra hai
tu hi jaane tu kya sochta hai
tu hi jaane tu kya sochta hai baawre
kyon dikhaye sapne tu sotey jaagte
jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
naino ko moond moond
jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
kaise main chaloon
dekh na sakoon
anjaane raaste

goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara

dil me bole koi iktara iktara
dil me bole koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara

sun rahi hoon sudh budh khoke
koi main kahaani
poori kahaani hai kya
kise hai pata
main to kisiki hoke yeh bhi na jaani
rut hai yeh do pal ki ya
rahegi sadaa

kise hai pataa
kise hai pataa
kise hai pataa

jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
naino ko moond moond

jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
kaise main chaloon
dekh na sakoon
anjaane raaste

ओ रे मनवा तू तो बावरा है
तू ही जाने तू क्या सोचता है
तू ही जाने तू क्या सोचता है बावरे
क्यों दिखाये सपने तू सोते जागते
जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
कैसे मैं चलूँ

गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा

दिल में बोले कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
दिल में बोले कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा

सुन रही हूँ सुध बुध खोके
कोई मैं कहानी
पूरी कहानी है क्या
किसे है पता
मैं तो किसि की होके ये भी ना जानी
रुत है ये दो पल की या
रहेगी सदा

किसे है पता
किसे है पता
किसे है पता

जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद

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.

So 31st January sees the pretty Priety Zinta turn 40. She completes 15 years in Bollywood. I agree yeh toh bachchi hai as far as our blog is concerned. But kya Karen? She is everything that we all love. A movie star who owns a cricket team 😉

‘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.

So the song which I have chosen today is from a very recent (going by the unwritten standards of our blog) bollywood movie though the movie itself had its story based in Pre independence India. It showed how the common folk reacted to the Hindu Muslim tensions back then. Even feelings as tender as love was given a kick when it came to religious sentiments. (At least that is what all the movies that are placed in that period depict. Sometimes I feel that thank god we were not born back then. But then I do not think we are living any differently even now in the 2000s, are we?) But lets not get into all that and focus on the song itself.

So today (25 september 2013) is the 53rd birthday of Master Satyajeet (DOB 25 september 1960) who played the role of a young Dev Anand in “Hare Rama Hare Krishna”. He grew up and did a few movies as main lead mainly in Rajshri Films— Paheli (1977), Gopal Krishna (1979) etc and then probably he realized that he was getting nowhere as far as leading roles were concerned.

Here is a song that I have wanted to send for quite some now. I will call it rare in the sense that the duet is with male singers —Kishore Kumar and S P Balasubramaniam. The two heroes are Rishi Kapoor and Kamalhaasan. The picturisation shows the heroes dancing in a local joint- call it a bar or an eating house or Tavern (I think that is the right word) run by Dimple and her dad Saeed Jaffrey.
