The yippeee film for today the 1972 production by Manoj Kumar – ‘Shor’.

There was a period in the career of Manoj Kumar, where every film he touched has either been a hit, or it has commanded a cult status over the years. Starting with ‘Shaheed’ in 1965, and right up to ‘Kranti’ in 1981, he produced, directed and acted in a string of hit films, that have become memorable icons over the years. It was ‘Shaheed’ in 1965, then ‘Upkar’ in 1967, then ‘Poorab Aur Pashchim’ and ‘Yaadgar’ in 1970, then ‘Shor’ in 1972, ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makan’ in 1974, and then ‘Kranti’ in 1981. Of these, the 1972 production of ‘Shor’ is kind of the odd one out – it is not really a patriotic / nationalist theme, that is Manoj Kumar’s forte, that earned him the nickname of Mr Bhaarat. After 1981, Manoj Kumar seemed to have lost his touch, and after a string of indifferent productions – ‘Painter Babu’ (1983), ‘Kalyug Aur Ramayan’ (1987), and ‘Clerk’ (1989), he kind of let go the production / direction stance.

Coming back to ‘Shor’, not just that it was a little different from the normal ‘nationalist’ genre of Manoj Kumar, it is also counted as the least successful film, commercially, in his career as a producer / director – from the period of ‘Shaheed’ to ‘Kranti’. And then, like a few other handful of examples, this film gained a cult status over the decades. And that was, not in the least due to the fantastic songs and music of this film.

Having said that, it surely needs to be recognized and acknowledged that – looking at the list of his films from ‘Shaheed’ to ‘Kranti’ – he belongs to that select band of producers/directors that have had a Midas touch as far as music and songs are concerned. A quick review of his films listed above will lend credence to this statement. Even if, for the sake of argument only, if this set of films is viewed for quality features and box office attractions, then even if one wants to discount other aspects related to the film, one will not be able to discount these films for the sake of the music and songs.

One reason that ‘Shor’, after its initial lukewarm reception at the box office, continued to build into a cult film status, is its wonderful, and even powerful, music and songs.  Let’s take look at the list of songs of this film. It seems to be short in the list, but the impact and profundity of these songs, stands out all by itself.

Paani re paani teraa rang kaisaa 1658 21-Jul-09
Ik pyaar ka naghmaa hai 1675 24-Jul-09
Jeewan Chalne Ka Naam 5555 1-Mar-12
Shehnaai Baje Na Baje 14003 2-Feb-18

 

My favorite amongst these is of course the one that talks about the colors of water – “Paani Re Paani Tera Rang Kaisa”. The words of this song are just so dear. Every line, every stanza has its own flavor, and impact. In the three stanzas, the question posed in the mukhda is answered in different ways. And the last one – which will touch a chord of the life’s hope within each human being – is simply the best – “Sau Saal Jeene Ki Ummeedon Jaisa”.

Then we have the supremely inspirational song of hope and progress – “Jeevan Chalne Ka Naam” – a song that plays through the days of the hopeful endaeavor, as the hero attempts to break a record of continuous cycling effort. An event and a song that bring together an entire community – a pinnacle of synthesis of emotions coming together as one.

And then the song that has, along with “Paani Re Paani. . .”, garnered the cult status – this time in the genre of love songs. Every time I listen to this line – “Zindagi Aur Kuchh Bhi Nahin, Teri Meri Kahaani Hai”, it sends shiver down my spine. The sheer simplicity of words, put together to express one of the most profound essays in the multiplicity of human existence. In eventual analysis, actually in this life, there is nothing more than the self. And practically every tale is eventually a tale of the self. But love changes all that. When there is love, then the tale is of ‘you and me’ put together – and there really is nothing else in life actually. “Ik Pyaar Ka Naghma Hai” – life is but simply a song of love, yours and my love. One of THE best expressions that puts in a definitive and ultimate response to the query of “what is love”.

Another aspect of his musical expression I would like to discuss. What we see here is the shades of Raj Kapoor and Goldie Anand – as far as the construction and the presentation of the song is concerned. Manoj Kumar really has that Midas touch to get the best out of the team of songwriter + music director + singers. The songs of his films are some of the best-in-class creations that will be listed right up there with the ones that are considered as top creations, as well as presentations. He also has a knack of putting together the most appropriate scenario, and most convincingly, to bring the song in and merge it quite so seamlessly with the flow of the story line. His song presentations are simply out of the ordinary, in a special category all by themselves. Take your thoughts back to the songs like “Jogi Hum to Lut Gaye Tere Pyaar Mein” from ‘Shaheed’; “Aayee Jhoom Ke Basant” from ‘Upkar’; “Main Na Bhoolunga. . .” from ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’; “Ab Ke Baras Tujhe. . .” and “Zindagi Ki Na Toote Ladi” from ‘Kranti’. And the one that is the closest to my heart as a special favorite – “Hai Preet Jahaan Ki Reet Sada” from ‘Purab Aur Paschim”. That I am picking these songs as a sampler does not mean that the remaining songs do not jell. Each one does. Just that the space does not permit me to write about each one of them, what all I wish to write.

The song presented today, comes on to the screen with an already prefaced history, in the film. The three stanzas in this song are directed towards three men who are coincidentally present and watching the dance performance, Rani (role played by Jaya Bhaduri), is a worldly wise young lady, and a street urchin at that. To compete with and to secure herself in this most perilous environment in which she exists, she has to become one of them, with a tongue that can abuse an curse the most evil, and hands that are adept in swinging the blade of a deadly knife. Her standard masquerade to cheat people, i.e. men, and rob them, is to appear on a less traversed road in the late evening, and pose as a helpless damsel looking for help. And when a victim gets interested, she will start screaming to draw the attention of whatever is the sparse crowd, crying for help against the man. The poor victim, is painted as a trying to outrage her modesty. She blackmails them to cough up some money, in exchange for her to keep quiet.

Prior to this song, these three men are each party to such encounters with her. The first one – a regular junior artist whose name I am not able to recall right away, is a meek fellow who gets conned by Rani. The second one is Shankar (role played by Manoj Kumar), who turns the tables on her, and dares her to shout and gather attention. And the third one is also local street smart mawaali (role played by Manmohan), who fancies Rani to be easy meat for his spurious intentions. For a change, as Rani does a street dance performance, striving also to make some honest money, the three gentlemen appear one by one, to be dealt with appropriately.

Jaya’s performance as Rani is just superb. In 1972, she is very fresh from IFTI, Pune, and her portrayal of a near vagabond and street smart character is quite so convincing. We also see Premnath as the Pathan friend of Shankar, Master Satyajeet as Deepak, the mute son of Shankar, and Manmohan as the local mawaali. Once again, I request help from the more knowledgeable readers to help identify the very familiar junior artist behind the bespectacled thin old man who appears in the first stanza.

So with this post, we bring to a close, the discussion on this cult classic film from Manoj Kumar. Wonderful songs and music galore from his films. Welcome ‘Shor’ to Yippeee-land.

Hullo to all Atulwaale

So valentines’ day, as the world celebrates, is over and done with. All the red heart shaped balloons might have lost the air in them and stopped soaring high. All the guys will now be sewing the holes in their pockets that the gifting, dining and partying would have caused. And am sure the gals -as in guys ‘n’ gals- will be waiting for the next opportunity to drill a hole in their guys wallets/pockets.

Today’s song is from the film Abhimaan-1973.

It is not that I write only about films and music of the period from 1930s to 1960s. Though that is my first love and also my forte, I believe that Amitabh’s films of the 70s and 80s are in a league of their own. Like millions of his fans, I too was an ardent fan of Amitabh Bachchan for his pre-1984 films. My most favourite film of Amitabh Bachchan is Trishool-78. In those days, I had bought the VCR cassette of Trishool and watched the film repeatedly on it,till my wife and daughters got sick of it and staged a mutiny against me. After the VCR became obsolete, I sold it at just Rs. 100 and also disposed off all the video cassettes-except Trishool. It is still with me, as useless as anything can be and occupying a space in the cabinet. It carries a sentimental value for me. Though I can not play it anymore, arting with it is out of question. Incidentally I do not have VCD of this or for that matter of any other film.
