Hullo to Atuldom

We have had two posts today celebrating the birth anniversary of the one and only Mohd. Rafi. And both were excellent posts. Our Avinashji has managed to remember Mahipal’s birth anniversary too. Great job!

Today also happens to be the birthdate of an actor/ star shining in Bollywood since 1984. I won’t say he didn’t struggle to find his place in Bollywood. I won’t say that being the son of a producer made things easy for him. He began by playing one the many young characters in Umesh Mehra’s “Humare Tumhare”. He assisted director Bapu who was then directing “Hum Paanch”. I am talking of Anil Kapoor. It is hard to believe he turns 61 today. I saw a recent movie of his, this morning on one satellite channel where his physique matches his young nephew- Arjun Kapoor- who was his co-actor. I seem to have been seen a lot of movies of his post 1990 when he played a mentor obsessive of his protégé- Taal. He has played a mentally retarded man who is a very understanding and supportive husband in Eeshwar, a modern city educated son of a proud village headman who gets his priorities right when he sees his father hacked to death in Viraasat. Oh, definitely he is a master of all genres when in front of the camera including comedy. I can list out all his collaborations with David Dhawan to prove my point here. But I will pick a movie called “Deewana Mastana” and the rest of the post will explain why this particular movie.

There is one other actor who had his birthday this week. He too, like Anil Kapoor, belonged to a family connected with Bollywood. His father was an actor in the forties till mid-fifties and mother was a classical singer of the Patiala Gharana and also an actress of the forties. Our actor/ star who is their son is one of Arun Kumar Ahuja and Nirmala Devi’s six children- Govinda. His birthday was on 21st and he turned 54 only!!? Should be considering he was born in 1963. He too began his journey in Bollywood in the 80s, playing second fiddle to the likes of Raj Kumar – Marte Dum Tak, Dilip Kumar- Izzatdaar; Dharamendra – Dadagiri and a few more; Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Rajnikant , Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Jeeteedra and all the top stars of that period. He played into the hearts of the audience with his dancing abilities which he had honed after seeing Mithun in Disco Dancer. I remember I was floored by the way he danced in Pahlaj Nihalani’s “Ilzaam” to the “street dancer” song. But he found his comic capabilities on teaming up with David Dhawan and then we were drowned in a sea of ‘No:1’ movies.
Though Deewana Mastana didn’t carry the ‘No:1’ tag it was still a rib-tickler. We had Anil Kapoor as Raja ganging-up with Johnny Lever as Ghafoor against Govinda as Bunnu and trying to woo the beautiful Psychiatrist Dr. Neha (Juhi Chawla). And without resorting to buffoonery these two keep the proceedings lively. All the comedy is through the dialogues. There is one particular scene where Bunnu and Raja discus all the movies that ever-had love-triangles in them and how eventually one person has to sacrifice his love but the movie had a unique ending with both the suitors losing the girl 🙂 .

Today’s song is a party number where the whole cast joins the lead three. It is written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant-Pyarelal were the composers. Kavitha Krishnamurthy, Udit Narayan and Vinod Rathod are the singers. The movie was produced by Ketan Desai.

Happy Birthday to Anil Kapoor and belated wishes to Govinda.

Hullo to all Atulites

Today’s birthday girl was a Miss India winner in the year when my family got a TV for the first time ever. Prior to that whatever I have seen on TV (read Doordarshan) was either in other people’s houses or my chachu’s home. (As I have previously mentioned on many occasions. Those days nobody minded other people’s kids or adults too for that matter, coming in to see TV) I remember having got used to seeing the live relay of the Republic day parades, Filmfare Awards Nites, test matches, Wimbledon and opening ceremonies of Olympics or Asiad etc. They had a different charm to them specially when there would be no repeat telecasts and we used to either wake up early or sit up late to see live relays of overseas events.

One such live event which I tried never to miss was the Femina Miss India Contest. I have seen it almost every year till 1995 (then they became too commercial as so many other things in our lives.) So in the year 1984 we had this very cutely pretty (if there is such an expression) Juhi Chawla winning the Miss India crown. Then when she went to represent India at the Miss Universe contest I made it a point to sit through that too. Here she had worn a very lovely Ghaghara Choli and that got her the best costume award, it made her look so Indian that any Indian would have been proud to carry that look. In the final listing she was placed number five, even that was not a small achievement I am sure. But that gave her the ticket to a career in front of the camera. She has been a model & went on to become one of Hindi film industry’s reigning goddesses. I saw a little of two of her last releases and I was so happy that she has not been relegated to mother or aunt roles but has been getting strong female characters. “Gulab Gang” (2014) has her playing a conniving and shrewd politician, Sumitra Bagrecha, who uses people. Then came “Chalk n Duster” where she played a teacher who takes a stand against the commercialization of the Indian private education system. If she had Madhuri Dixit as her co actor in Gulab Gang she had Shabana Azmi with her in Chalk ‘n’ Duster. And in both movies it was difficult to judge who was better than whom. She has been a producer in partnership with Shahrukh Khan and Aziz Mirza. She is also the co-owner of the Kolkata cricket team in the IPL. What varied interests indeed. Her only regret was that she discontinued her dancing lessons after just three years but has been training in classical music for some time now.

Since I mentioned that Juhi Chawla had won the Best Costume at the Miss Universe I thought we will also have her in a song where she is donning a Ghaghara Choli and looking lovely/ pretty. The song is from the 1993-Mahesh Bhatt directed-Tahir Hussain produced- “Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke”. This movie had her play Vyjayanti Iyer who runs away from home and a marriage to a person she can’t stand. She takes refuge in Amir Khan’s home (initially without his knowledge), who has a bunch of kids to take care of. She becomes the go-between for the kids and their mama, falls in love with the mama and day dreams today’s song. It is sung by Alka Yagnik and Kumar Shanu. The song got Alka Yagnik a National Award for best singer and the movie got Juhi her Best Actress Filmfare Award. The song also fetched Sameer the best lyricist Filmfare Award. Nadeem-Shravan were the music directors.

Still liking your performances; Happy Birthday to you Juhi Chawla.


Song-Ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka (Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke)(1993) Singers-Alka Yagnik, Kumar Sanu, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Nadeem Shrawan

Lyrics

ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar kaaa
deedaar adhooraaa rehta hai
ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar kaaa
deedaar adhooraaa rehta hai
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
singaar adhoora rehta hai
ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka

ghoonghat ki aadh se dilbar ka
deedaar adhoora rehta hai
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
ikraar adhoora rehta hai
ghunghat ki aad se dilbar ka

dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka

gore mukhde se ghunghta hataane de
ghadi apne milan ki toh aane de
mere dil pe nahin mera kaabu hai
kuch nahi yeh toh chaahat ka jaadoo hai
badhti hi jaati hai sanam
pyar ki yeh bekhudi ho

do premiyon ke na milne se ae
sansaar adhooraa rehta hai
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
singaar adhoora rehta hai
ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka

baagh mein gul ka khilna zaroori hai
haan mohabbat mein milna zaroori hai
paas aane ka achchha bahaana hai
kya karoon main ke mausam deewaana hai
dil mera dhadkaane lagi
abb toh yeh dewaangi ho
bina kisi yaar ke jaane jaan aa
yeh pyaar adhooraa rehta hai
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
ikraar adhoora rehta hai

ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
o dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka

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.

Readers of this blog might now be familiar with a certain pattern of posts on this blog.

While there are posts which focus largely on the song, or the film, or even personal anecdotes, one common pattern is the celebration of anniversaries and milestones, in a post.

The anniversaries are our way of paying tribute to the artiste concerned. Whoever the artiste, whether a composer or lyricist or actor, whatever his level of fame in the industry, we try to remember and honour him on his birth or death anniversary.

People who are into stock markets try to guess the movement of shares based on past pattern of their price movement. I think that the principles of stock market indexes can be used to make guesses about my activities as well. If lots of songs are being discussed then it could mean that I have lots of time at my disposal, little pressure of work, family, pets etc and that my internet connection, electricity connection etc are co operating. 🙂

Today, 6th April, is the birth anniversary of Sanjay Suri, a star of our current times.

Born this day in 1971, he is a native of Srinagar in Kashmir.  In 1990, his father was killed in a terrorist attack, and his family was forced to flee their hometown.  They came to Jammu and then settled down in Delhi.

Our parents are our first friends. They were the first ones who understood that we are hungry or upset or just bored without our even speaking (of course we would cry very very loudly at all those points but still). But before we came in and wreaked havoc in their lives, the best families are the ones where they were each other’s best friends.

I have discussed nearly twenty Holi songs in this blog during the three Holis that this blog has seen so far. That covers almost all the well known Holi songs and also a few songs that are not all that well known.

This movie was “Darr”, a Yash Chopra movie, where the upcoming hero Sharrukh Khan played a negative role and stole the thunder.

And it was this song that defines his character in this movie, that of a psycho who is obsessed about possessing the girl of his dream, who is already married to someone else.
