Hullo Atuldom

‘Pehli Baar’ (First Time) is a program that is aired on a channel of the DTH service that I am subscribed to. It gives background about how some celebrities met or got together for the first time ever. Of course the incidents, and content in that program is possibly stuff that many of us have read over the years over-and-over again, and also in all the Filmfares, Screen (the magazines of yesteryear), Star & Style, Stardust, Cine Blitz etc. that were available in all the circulating libraries of those times. Stories like how Nargis had batter in her hand when she opened the door for Raj Kapoor, how Balraj Sahni saw Johnny Walker mimicking actors as he sold tickets in Mumbai’s BEST buses etc.

When I write a post I try to bring songs from the first movie of the celebrity who I am focusing on. The ‘Pehli Baar’ of the artistes who have made a place in our hearts and minds. The Pehli Baar that I mentioned star-kid (now a grown-up man) Abhishek Bachchan in a post, must have been this song – “Happy Days Are Here Again“.

But that was not his debut in Hindi films, his debut was in JP Dutta’s ‘Refugee’ in 2000. The movie was also the first released film for Kareena Kapoor. Jackie Shroff, Suneil Shetty, Reena Roy, Anupam Kher, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Shadaab Khan (Amjad Khan’s son), Ashish Vidyarthi and a whole set of known faces forming the supporting cast were part of the film which was about a Muslim family from Bihar that had migrated to East Pakistan post the partition of India in 1947. But after the formation of Bangladesh in 1971 this family along with several such families are forced to relocate to West Pakistan. For this they choose the Dhaka-Guwahati-Delhi-Ajmer route. From Ajmer they go to Haji Peer in Pakistan through Bhuj in Rann of Kutch. In this endeavor they are assisted by an agent who is simply addressed as Refugee (Abhishek Bachchan). He normally is very impersonal when escorting people across the border and is unaware that he is assisting terrorists too. But he begins to like the daughter (Kareena Kapoor) of this family and keeps visiting her even after the family is settled into Pakistan. The rest of the movie talks about the hardships the lovers face due to involvement of the border security forces, terrorism in the region etc. And as in all JP Dutta movies there is exchange of fire, across the border, between the Indian and Pakistani forces and a thought provoking question at the close of the film when Kareena Kapoor delivers her baby in the no-man’s land area between the two nations.

‘Refugee’ was an average grosser at the box-office and both the debutantes got positive reviews too. Following its release Abhishek was seen in ‘Tera Jadoo Chal gaya’ and ‘Dhai Akshar Prem Ke’ in the same year. ‘Dhai Akshar Prem Ke’ was the Pehli Baar that we saw Aishwarya Rai with AB Jr. (as he is popular in the social media world). There were other 10-12 movies of AB Jr’s that released between 2000 and 2004, all of which were not-so-commercially successful. But most of them had the critics appreciating Abhishek. ‘Yuva’ (2004) by Mani Ratnam is a point in case. ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ (2005) and ‘Dhoom’ (2004 ) were his biggest successes in that period. He has been trolled (a term that is in vogue in this age and times) for being his parents’ son and wife’s husband for the past few years. But he is a person who has never responded to any of the negatives that are being thrown at him and has been quietly working with a movie of his releasing every year.

Let me clear my stand here:- I am his parents’ fan not his. But I really like his work and the sincerity with which he dances and emotes. I don’t think there is any harm in appreciating good work and Abhishek does have some good movies in his filmography. I have seen him switch between atrocious comedy and absolute serious scenes with ease in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Bol Bachchan’ (2012) and ‘Zameen’ (2003). He is definitely his parents’ son (and I am not mentioning it in a negative way here). He has been around for 22 years and nobody will invest money on a flop actor if he was not going to give good returns.

So let us wish him well on his birthday today.

I have a whole set of possible songs to go with this post, but I shall stick to AB Jr’s first screen appearance. ‘Refugee’ had six songs of which the following two are on the blog – “Aisa Lagta Hai Jo Na Hua Hone Ko Hai” and “Raat Ki Hathlei Par Chaand Jagmagaata Hai“.

The first song appeared almost 10 years ago. Here is the next. It is sung by Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik, written by Javed Akhtar and Anu Malik is the music director. The song shows the young lovers building their future home.

Hullo Atuldom

Recently, last five years to be exact, November 2nd has been added to the dates for which I feel compelled to write a post. These were the posts from the last Five years

Dates Song
2 November 2016 Dil aashna hai jigar aashna hai
2 November 2017 Taak dhin dhin taak dhin dhin dhin
2 November 2018 Jaata hai tu kahaan
2 November 2019 Aashiq hoon main qaatil bhi hoon
2 November 2020 Katthai aankhon waali ek ladki

November 2nd became an important date in the calendar for Atuldom when we discovered that a very dear Atulite has his birthday on this date. He used to be a very active member of Atuldom. But has been missing from action since the last four months- his last post on the blog was on July 19, 2021. He has contributed 1407 posts to the blog (the highest by a guest poster on ASAD), enriched 137 posts by contributing lyrics for them, plus he has added Devnagari lyrics to 1414 posts. Most importantly all his posts have lyrics in both Devnagari and the Roman script. He is a treasure house of information and has connections to collectors of music and vinyl records of music from all eras and is competent in locating rare gems when requested by followers of the blog.

Of course his journey on the blog began like all other followers (correct me if I am wrong Sudhirji) landing on Atulsongaday in search of some song, liking the premise of the blog and staying glued to it forever. He went a step further when he became Atulji’s aide and shared the task of posting songs on the blog, which actually helped on days when Atulji was busy with earthly responsibilities.

Here is wishing our very own Dilldaar Dilliwala “Many More Happy returns of the day”.

For this post I propose that we have a song from the 26th October 2001 released, Santosh Sivan directed and Gauri Khan/ Juhi Chawla produced ‘Asoka’. It had a starcast headed by Kareena Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, Danny, Ajith Kumar (the southern star), Gerson Da Cunha (Adman, Stage & media personality), Umesh Mehra (the producer/ director of films like ‘Guru’, ‘Ashanthi’, ‘Mujrim’ etc.) along with Subhashini Ali, Hrishita Bhatt, Rahul Dev etc. The music was composed by Anu Malik; Gulzar and Anand Bakshi are credited as lyricists (must be the only time these two featured as lyricists in the same film). The vocals of Alka Yagnik, Abhijeet, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shaan, K.S. Chitra, Hema Sardesai can be heard in the songs.

Here is a melodious song from the movie which is filmed on another Dilliwala -SRK who also has his birthday today with Anu Malik the music composer also celebrating his birthday. This post which celebrates three birthdays is sung by a person whose birthday was on 30th October- Abhijeet. The female voice is of Alka Yagnik.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Sudhirji with this song penned by Gulzar.

Hullo Atuldom

Heard this song today in the noon program of Vividh Bharati -Desh Ki Surili Dhadkan (the channel’s tagline). And immediately recalled a 2001 release which featured the off-springs of the actors from the above song. ‘Farz’ from which today’s trigger happened is 54 years old, the off-springs of the actors are themselves 44 and 40..everything seems like yesterday but all things that I mentioned are decently in the PAST. Even a movie that released in 2001 is 20 years old, ooh!!!

I am talking of “Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai” which was directed by Satish Kaushik, written by Rumi Jaffery, songs were by Sameer and Anu Malik. Its cast included Kareena Kapoor, Rinke Khanna, Tusshar Kapoor, Amrish Puri, Dalip Tahil, Alok Nath, Vrajesh Hirjee, Himani Shivpuri, Dinesh Hingoo etc.

I have not seen the movie as a whole but vaguely recall that the story revolved around a sensitive young adult Karan (Tusshar Kapoor) who frequently skips college. Despite his poor academic performance, he displays many other talents. He is clever, an excellent musician, and plays in a band. His father constantly expresses his disappointment in him which often leads to Karan having outbursts of frustration and anger. One day in a deserted street, he lays eyes on Pooja (Kareena Kapoor) for the first time and falls in love with her. Following this brief acquaintance, he looks all over for her but fails to find her. He slowly begins to lose hope in his quest, stops playing music and decides to move to another city with his uncle. While on his way there, his car breaks down, and he is forced to hitch a ride. To his amazement, he finds Pooja in the driver’s seat. As they introduce themselves, an accident occurs when a truck collides with their car, which subsequently falls into a valley. Karan and Pooja find themselves hanging from a cliff, and even though Karan manages to haul Pooja back up the steep cliff, he loses his grip and falls into the ravine.

When Pooja regains consciousness, she assumes responsibility for Karan’s death and offers to help in the search for his body. Meanwhile, Karan has survived the fall but is seriously injured and unconscious. He is found by a man who takes him to the hospital and soon after, Karan is reunited with his family. As he recovers, he reflects on how he should have confessed his love to Pooja in the few moments they were together. He also begins to focus on his education instead of his music. In time, Pooja arrives at his doorstep to apologize and offers her friendship. They become good friends and then Pooja tells Karan that she must leave for the United States for further studies. Devastated, he finally confesses his love for her. Pooja feels the same way and cannot deny her feelings for Karan, and promises that she will return to him once she completes her education. Karan agrees to patiently wait for her.

September 20th is the birthdate of Kareena Kapoor. The fifth generation of the Kapoor Khaandan, only the third girl from the clan to enter showbiz- the other two being Sanjana Kapoor (Shashi Kapoor’s daughter) and Karisma Kapoor. The younger daughter of Randhir Kapoor and Babita. A few other caps also fit her dainty head- cousin to Ranbhir Kapoor, wife of Saif Ali Khan, daughter-in-law to Sharmila Tagore. She is a recipient of 6 filmfare awards beginning with award for best debut for her role in ‘Refugee’ (2000). She is considered to be a style icon and has also competent in enacting a variety of characters as we have see in ‘Chameli’, ‘Yuva’, ‘Dev’, ‘Fida’, ‘Aitraaz’ -all in 2004, each character different from the other. She has been paired opposite most of the heroes of that period- Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan, Fardeen Khan, Shahid Kapoor, and the Khans viz. Salman, Shahrukh, Aamir, Saif. She has also acted in a few multi-heroine movies. She says she is a huge fan of the (late) Sridevi.

With this song “Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai” (2001) makes its debut. This song is in the voices of Preethi, Pinky and Babul Supriyo. Preethi and Pinky are sisters who were very popular in the late 90s and at the turn of the millennium. I recall that a song, picturised on Rani Mukherjee and Preity Zinta, rendered by these sisters was very popular among school children and youngsters in that period.

Happy Birthday Bebo, I mean, Kareena.


Song-Maine koi jaadoo nahin kiya (Mujhe Kuchh Kehna Hai)(2001) Singers-Preeti, Pinky, Babul Supriyo, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Anu Malik

This is a song for the rainy season. I have the lyrics noted with me since last year’s rainy season, but the post never got written. This is from the film Chameli (2003), which has 6 songs and Sunidhi Chauhan is the singer in all of them. Two are duets and the rest 4 are solo songs. This rain song is one of the solos. Sandesh Shandilya is the composer and lyricist is Irshad Kamil. This must be a record of sorts for the new millennium, one singer singing in all songs. Today is 14th August and it is Sunidhi Chauhan’s birthday. Can’t say for sure that there is no better song for celebrating the event, but the song is quite good. Sunidhi Chauhan is very versatile and has made a name for herself in her field. She has followed the footsteps of Alka Yagnik and a predecessor to Shreya Ghoshal. There was enough scope for many singers to work and make a name.

I was meant to watch the film for writing the post, but that was not to be. So, I have not seen the film, and as far as I know, I have seen only this song. The other details are available (here. This was a hit song and was all over the FM channels when the movie was new. Come to think of it, it sounds as if it is very new song and not 17 year old. Meaning it has fallen on unsuspecting ears all through the 16 years. For the last one year, this has been growing on me. Now it has come of age and time for it to arrive on the blog.

Kareena is singing this song in the rain and it is clear that she is a prostitute, in the movie.

The other day I read this post by Atul Jee . In this post he gave some highlights of Munshi Premchand’s life. Munshi Premchand’s literary contributions I was aware of since school days, through lessons in text books. It is an appreciable quality that he practiced what he preached in terms of women’s rights. A belief has to be translated into deeds, only than it is a belief otherwise it is hypocrisy. I can imagine how difficult it was for Munshi Premchand to go against the society norms and marry a widow in those times. But I dare say, for a large section of the population of undivided india, this was no crime. Widow remarriage, divorcee remarriage all was legally allowed for them. A part of the illiterate population may not have known about those rights, is another matter, being a socio-economic problem.

India’s struggle of independence was a revolutionary period in many aspects with society struggling with changes and newer values.
The struggle for women’s rights is a classic case study, in my opinion. And we have lost the game in our developed sense of rightness.
Over the centuries, women demanded voting rights, got them. They wanted property rights, got them. They want to be treated as an equal; they are getting there all the time. Right to divorce, right to re-marry etc. the list is endless.

But all through this so called cultural revolution and great emancipation of women in the last one century, one indignity, which I consider an ultimate insult to womanhood, has been blatantly allowed to flourish. A woman who is the mother of mankind is made to suffer this atrocity as a ‘profession’. It is a legalized profession in many countries of this modern world. By what law and rule of justice and fraternity, is this explainable or excusable? This is the social development the human race has achieved in 3+ millennia of recorded history.

All great religions of the world, all the prophets, all the emperors and kings, all just and unjust rulers of the civilized world, have taken their bow. And who among them was ever able to ensure a just and dignified life to women?
Where women were not made to suffer such humiliating life,
Where women had property rights and voting rights,
Where women had right to divorce, remarry and conjugal rights,
Where there existed a system for social security equality for all including women and their children, which more than adequately provided for all their needs, legally, without having to compromise on dignity and self-respect.

Everyone knows that ‘prostitution’ is a social evil. But has any one ever taken a step to eradicate it?

Many poets have raised the issue, and received accolades for his efforts. But poets can only show a mirror to the society, society has to make the correction itself. The poets alone cannot do it for the whole society.

Saahir said : Sansaar ki har ek besharmi, gurbat it god mein palti hai….
This is no longer true in our social set up of the modern world.

Some social reformers might have tried to oppose this practice, but there is no end to this, as far as the eye can see. The answer to the questions is available within this universe. One only needs to have eyes and ears and sense to find it. The universal rules of economics apply here, but calling it the oldest profession in the world will not suffice.

The civilization has made no progress in my opinion, as this most degrading of all social-economic condition is allowed to prevail. We the citizens of this world are responsible for this.

May be it is time that the civilization looks at this issue in the morally correct and humane way. It is less a women’s issue and more a social issue.

I have digressed enough now. Coming back to the song, let us enjoy this song as a song for “barsaat ka mausam”.

When I was pointed into the right direction, i.e. JK Rowling and Harry Potter, then the mystery dissolved away, and the nickname ‘Peevesie’ came out in a better light. And after spending maybe an hour with her, the significance of the nickname also eased itself into my mind. In the Harry Potter series, Peeves is a poltergeist at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, since c. 993. Fond of mischief and chaos, he is known as the spirit of chaos around the school. And so, picking up from her favorite series of teenage adventures, the daughter of Peevesie’s Mom selected this nickname for herself. Hmmm. . . is it that the daughter of Peevesie’s Mom selected this nickname for herself and was then known as Peevesie, or is it that she picked this nickname and then her mom came to be known as Peevesie’s Mom – it is getting a little mixed up in the order in which the things may have happened.

When I was a pre teen and even teenager, I did not like old songs at all. In fact, I and my peers found old songs as sources of inadvertent amusement when we were tired of disliking them. We wondered all the time why old singers could not sing like the present day singers.
