Today 1st May’2022 is the one hundred and third birth anniversary of legendary Singer Manna Dey (01.05.1919-24.10.2013). As a tribute to him, I am presenting a motivational song sung by him from the movie ‘Prahaar-1991’.

‘PRAHAAR: The Final Attack’ was a film Produced by Sudhakar Bokade and Directed by Nana Patekar. The star cast includes Nana Patekar, Dimple Kapadia, Madhuri Dixit, and Gautam Joglekar who played the second lead with Madhuri Dixit. Prominent Stage artist Shri.Habib Tanvir played the role of Gautam’s father.
The film was produced under the banner of ‘Divya Films combine’. Its cinematography was done by Debu Deodhar.

‘Prahaar’ had as many as three songs, and the one under discussion today has three versions sung two by Manna Dey (happy and sad) and one by Kavita Krishnamurthy. The lyrics are written by Mangesh Kulkarni, and music is scored by Laxmikant–Pyarelal.

I had watched this movie during my stay at Kota (Rajasthan) and I liked it very much. I watched this movie at least three-four times.

The movie highlights many issues within our society and for me this is one of the bests movies of Hindi Cinema. I will not go into the details of the story of the movie as it is better to watch and feel than to read about this movie. I wish that this film should be watched by everyone in India and introspect ourselves and our surroundings and the happenings around us… for a better India.

All the actors and actresses acting in the movie have delivered a power packed performance.

A detailed article about this movie has been written by our Respected Shri Sadanand ji while presenting the song Dhadkan zara ruk gayee hai.

Today’s song has three versions and all of them are being presented here. This song is sung by Manna Dey and Kavita Krishnamurthy. The highly motivational lyrics are by Mangesh Kulkarni, and the divine music is given by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Let us listen to this wonderful song …

A. R. Rehman – The musician of 21st century – 2
————————————————————–

64th Birthday of Kavita Krishnamurthy
——————————————————————

Once upon a time, in our office, the crowd was more interfering in each other’s lives. There would be judgmental comments about each other, if someone works very hard, there was gossip about them. If someone is not very hard working there would be gossip and snide comments about them. 90’s and early 2000’s was a time when all had more time to bother about other people. Interference is one way to look at it. We were in one corner of Mumbai, and there were very few people who travelled long distances to arrive, and most of us were from nearby areas. There was less of anonymity or disregard of big city atmosphere. Come to think of it, most of us used to think of the office as a second home. As the working day would be full of work, talking to people and friends. We were more open to all sort of talk, discussions and even gossip. The office building would be like a small village, where everyone knew everything about everyone. That was an atmosphere, where, every new day was a new beginning. And come weekend, we would be full of plans for the next week. On Monday, we will do this or start on that work.

I don’t know, it feels as if things have gradually changed over the decades. Now every Friday, most of us actually feel joy that there will be no office for 2 days. Long weekend is more joyous, we all wish each other happy weekend. Whereas earlier it was, ‘see you on Monday’.
There was no A.C. in the office, nor fancy blinds or fancy name plates on the cabins, not much eating out and very few snack parties. But those were the happier days. Today, I have more money to spend, more authority to assert, freer to shop what ever the sales persons bring to sell, more snacks and lunch to order from outside eateries, as the office canteen is still is very bad. But the comradery of old days is absent. For sure, not all is ingenuine, but still the happiness quotient is gone. Or maybe I am simply bored.

Yeah, change is a part of life. Colleagues and friends of the older generation have all retired. Some of the dear friends have moved away, or transferred to different places. One corner of Mumbai has begun to feel and behave like a city. I am ready to admit, that I may have also changed. As we mature, it brings a certain discretion, in how we deal with new people. What was working and meeting with other people, has now become more of a dealing with people. Or having learnt from so many experiences, I have learnt to have superficial contact with people. I thought being superficial is just not my nature. But recently, I am introspecting, that maybe I have become like everyone else. Not a good sight.

I have seen some people in my life, and every time I have resolved, never to be like them. Some times we encounter people with really ugly mindset. I have a friend, who would always be looking for excuses, why certain person behaves like that, or has such type of manner. For a longish time, I also tried to look the other way, whenever such ugliness showed its face. I became so adept at ignoring things, that it would take a new person coming into the set up and that person would show me with examples, that such and such things are happening and I am not even aware. So, this was actually a sort of tuning out, from the atmosphere, so the bad things are totally ignored.

The reason I went into the flashback and into those good old days is the song from the film ‘Taal’. In early 2000’s we used to have lot of extra curricular activities in the office. One of the favourite events was ‘antakshari’. In one of those competitions, I had my friend as my partner. This one was a serious competition, very serious with all the contestants very keen to win. The hosts had done lot of hard work, to prepare for the tough rounds. One such tough rounds were picking up chits of a set of words, and recognize the song, which I found to be very easy. We did very well in that round. We did well in the round for recognizing the mukhda from the stanza also. Then there was the round of ‘dumb-charade’ where the chit was for movie name. My partner, picked up the chit and it was ‘Taal’. She made the suitable ‘Taal’ action and I knew the name. But unfortunately, I could not sing any song, none would come to mind. Both me and my friend were repeating ‘taal se taal milaa’, but that is not mukhda. So, we lost those crucial points, despite recognizing so many of the songs in stanza/mukhda round and the ‘set of word’ round, we finished second.

The movie ‘Taal’ was produced and directed by Subhash Ghai, who celebrated his birthday on 24/01/2022. Now it is the birthday of Kavita krishnamurthy today, so the second version is by Kavita Krishnamurthy and Sukhwendra Singh with Chorus. First version is actually a group song, which has Sonu Nigam with ARR, Anuradha Sriram, and Sujata Mohan. This song has long been in the list of Sonu Nigam songs, which I want to post. No better occasion, then Kavita Krishnamurthy’s birthday and post no. two of series on ARR. The Kavita Krishnamurthy version is listed as a separate song actually, but the same mukhda of first version is part of this song too, so it is a version song. The songs are picturized on Aishwarya Rai, Anil Kapoor and Akshaye Khanna.

Those were cable TV days, so I have seen this movie on cable TV. Some Sundays were spent watching movies on cable TV, 2-5 and then 6-9 shows. They would show the newer movies at 11-2 also sometimes. Like all Subash Ghai movies, this was also a musical, teaming up with ARR for the first time, who teamed up with Anand Bakshi as lyricist for the first time. I find this score of a purely hindi film much more attractive then, the dubbed songs in Mani Ratnam films.
More on ARR in coming posts, so we can listen to this wonderful sufiana/situational song.

Hullo Atuldom

10th October is the birth date of the ageless Bollywood Diva Bhanurekha Ganesan.

I don’t remember which was my first post on the blog on her birthday, but over the last few years I have been trying to write out a song and present her with an actor who was not one of her regular heroes; meaning someone except Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Jeeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Mehra etc. Today’s song is also one such song.

This song is from the 2000 release “Bulandi” which was directed by T. Rama Rao. It had a cast of Rajnikanth (special appearance), Anil Kapoor, Harish (from South Indian films), and Rekha, Raveena Tandon, Aruna Irani along with Shakti Kapoor, Ranjeet, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Paresh Rawal, Sadashiv Amrapurkar in supporting cast. Songs of the movie were penned by Anand Bakshi and tuned by Viju Shah. The playback singers used were Udit Narayan, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Anuradha Paudwal, Jaspinder Narula, Sukhwinder Singh, Abhijeet and Alka Yagnik -in short all the popular singers of the 90s.

The movie was the tale of a family of Zamindars which is headed by Rajnikanth who has a sister -Aruna Irani and three sons Anil Kapoor (double role plays two brothers) and Harish Kumar. Rekha plays the zamindar’s elder daughter-in-law who is the bhabhi-maa to her devars. And here I would like to mention that the two Anil Kapoors are not twins. Today’s song happens at the girl’s family meeting the boy’s family ritual and the older Anil Kapoor is the groom-to be. Aruna Irani the would-be atyaa (paternal aunt) starts the song as cue to the coy Bride-to-be who then begins singing and also fantasizing about her hubsand married life etc
There have been many instances when big a star/ actor accepts a role in a film because the main actor/ character is being enacted by a senior star/actor of whom the junior is a fan. Like for example, Amitabh Bachchan played Dilip Kumar’s son in Ramesh Sippy’s “Shakti”. Similarly Rekha played miniscule role in one of Dev Anand’s final movie, “Censor” and also one of Manoj Kumar’s last directorial.

Anil Kapoor did a second rung character in this film as he was sharing screen space with a senior (workwise)-Rekha. And the dance that accompanies sees Rekha and Anil Kapoor matching each other decently well. It is only recently I found out that there is just two year age gap between these two actors but one began working in 1966 (age 12) when the other might have been in school and not even given a thought to what career to pursue. That must be one of the reason why the viewer may feel that Anil Kapoor was acting with a much senior actress, she was a senior only because she was already in the entertainment business for 14 years before Anil made his debut.

The singers for this song are Kavitha Krishnamurthy and Udit Narayan.

Happy birthday to Rekha. May we keep seeing her on the silver screen.

Hullo Atuldom

A very Happy Republic day to one and all.

“India is my country
And all Indians are my brothers and sisters.
I love my country, and I am proud of its rich and varied heritage.
I shall always strive to be worthy of it.
I shall give respect to my parents, teachers, and all elders and treat everyone with courtesy.
To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion.
In their well being and prosperity alone, lies my happiness
Jai Hind!.”

This is the national pledge which is commonly found printed in the opening pages of the school text books and calendars. It is recited in the morning assembly of most Indian schools. It is part of the Indian Constitution. It is commonly recited by Indians in unison at public events, Independence day, Republic day etc. At least it used be so when I was a student, don’t know if this is still in practice. We all know who wrote the National Anthem or the National song but the author of the National Pledge is largely unknown. His name is P.V. Subba Rao who was a Telugu author and bureaucrat who composed the pledge when he was serving as District Treasury Officer in Vishakapatnam district in 1962/63. It was subsequently translated into other languages. Apparently Subba Rao himself was unaware of the Pledge having been adopted as National Pledge till he heard his grand daughter reading it from a textbook.

Hope we all get back to taking the pledge today on our 71st Republic day.
“Diljale” (1996) had music by Anu Malik and Javed Akhtar was the lyricist. It was produced by Paramjeet Baweja and directed by Harry Baweja; Karan Razdan (of the popular Doordarshan serial “Rajani” fame) was its story-screenplay-dialogue writer. It had a cast headed by Sonali Bendre- Ajay Devgan- Madhoo- Parmeet Sethi and Amrish Puri, Shakti Kapoor, Himani Shivpuri, Farida Jalal, Akash Khurana, Master Raju (as Raju Shrivastav), Rakesh Bedi, Tinnu Anand, Aroon Bakshi, Gulshan Grover etc in the supporting cast.

It was the story of Shyam (Ajay Devgan) who is the son of a patriotic village leader (Akash Khurana) who is in love with Radhika (Sonali Bendre) daughter of the local politician and an erstwhile Rajasaheb. The Raja cannot digest the love between the college students because of economic and class differences. He also cannot tolerate the village leader who is an obstacle in his aim to usurp the land of the villagers. The Raja, with the help of the local corrupt cop Gulshan Grover manages to frame the village leader and brand Shyam a terrorist when the latter goes to question the Raja’s actions. This causes a rift between the lovers.

Shyam manages to escape and finds refuge with Dara (Amrish Puri) and his gang who are basically pawns at the hand of India’s enemies. Shyam as Shaka tries to settle scores with Rajasaheb, and in process a few of his associates are captured by the army. Dara and his gang then hijack a bus of Vaishnodevi pilgrims so that they can pressurize the army into releasing their gang members. Radhika and her aunt are also part of the hostages. This provides the ex-lovers opportunity to clarify misunderstandings. The movie then proceeds to the climax with Shaka/ Shyam managing to avenge his father’s humiliation etc. He also manages to bring a change in the thinking of Dara and his gang who surrender to the army when they see that Shaka steps on a landmine that was meant to blow them up. All-in-all it was an entertaining movie but IMHO the solution to the terrorist problem, as shown in the movie, was rather lame.

“Diljale” had Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Poornima, Kumar Sanu, Udit Narayan and Master Aditya Narayan who has now grown into an adult and is a singer, composer and television host now. We have one song already in the blog out of the eight or nine songs that the movie had.

Today’s song is a two-version song. In the first version we have Akash Khurana lip-syncing to Kumar Sanu and tutoring his son about the motherland. The son lip-syncs to Aditya Narayan. This version has all the trappings of a National Day song with flag unfurling, releasing doves and Hindu Muslim bhaichara or unity as one may choose to view it. The second version starts as an antakshari played by the captives of Dara and gang and culminates as the patriotic song sung by Radhika in Kavita Krishnamurthy’s voice.

Incidentally 25th January happened to be Kavita Krishnamurthy’s 63rd birthday. She was born in Delhi as Sharada Krishnamurthy. She is married to Dr. L. Subramaniam a renowned composer, violinist, and conductor who is trained in Carnatic classical music as well as Western Classical music. Kavita got an opportunity to sing under the auspices of Hemant Kumar for a Bengali film in 1971 when she was still in college and Lata Mangeshkar was her co-singer. Hemantda’s daughter was instrumental in reintroducing Kavita to Hemantda and he began using her for his live performances. Manna Dey spotted her in one of these shows and then she sang a few advertisement jingles. Until 1985, when “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” happened, Kavita was a dubbing artist for many composers. “tumse milkar, na jaane kyun” and “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” was the turning point of her career. Here is wishing Kavita Krishnamurthy a life filled with happiness and music and good health.

Happy Republic Day once again.

Hullo Atuldom

Wishing all a happy Dassera. I know parts of India celebrated the festival on Sunday and parts are celebrating it today. I think that has something to do with the movement of the Moon from one constellation to another or mostly the phases of the moon which doesn’t necessarily follow the Gregorian calendar. I was confused as to the exact date for Vijaya Dashami or Dassehra and put the query to a group of knowledgeable friends and this is the reply I got:

October 23 Friday 7:00 onwards Ashtami
October 24 Saturday 7:00 onwards Navami
October 25 Sunday 7:45 onwards Dashami
October 26 Monday 9:00 onwards Ekadashi.

Now going by that reply we have Dashami till 9 a.m. today but for convenience sake (read working day/ holiday) there are many (in Kerala atleast) who would have celebrated the festival. But for the pandemic even Ram Leela would have come to a close yesterday (Sunday) with RavanDahan, as Dashami was present in the evening hours. Don’t know if it was held this year!!!!

But today’s post is not a lesson on the Panchang that Indians follow and neither am I the competent authority to comment on the Sun, Moon and the planetary movements. As always my post is to wish a celebrity on turning an year older.

This celebrity is the daughter of Producer/ director of ‘Anhonee’, ‘Khel Khel Mein’ ‘Khuddar’ etc.Ravi Tandon’s daughter- Raveena Tandon turns an year older today. She made her debut in 1991, at the age of 17,in a movie produced by G.P.Sippy and directed by Anant Balani “PattharKePhool” which had Salman Khan as the hero. She then went on to act with Sunny Deol, Govinda, Akshay Kumar, Shahrukh Khan, Anil Kapoor. 1994 saw her star in “Zamaane Se Kya Darna” with Sanjay Dutt, “Dilwale” with Suneil Shetty and Ajay Devgan, “Insaniyat” with Sunny Deol, “Imtihaan” with Saif Ali Khan and Sunny Deol, “Laadla” with Anil Kapoor, “Andaz Apna Apna” with Aamir Khan, “Aatish” again Sanjay Dutt and Mohra with Akshay Kumar. She also played herself in a song-cameo in Saif Ali Khan- Akshay Kumar starrer “Main Khiladi Tu Anari” and a role in a Tamil movie in 1994. She took a hiatus post marriage but was seen in a cameo in PuriJagannadh directed “Bbuddah… Hoga Tera Baap” (2011) as she got a chance to do a romantic scene with Amitaabh Bachchan whose sister she had played in “Bade MiyanChhoteMiyan” in the ‘90s. Since 2011 we see her in a movie or two per year plus she has conducted a few shows on television. On her personal front, she had adopted two young girls when they were 10 and 8 when she herself was only in her 20s. After marriage she has two children of her own.

Her most popular song of the 1994 earned her the nickname the ‘mast mast’ girl. Though she has never claimed to be ‘Mast’ meaning wonderful. So also the other birthday personality.
He is our own Rajaji. He is (to use a Hindi expression) a ‘yaaron ka yaar’. He is a devoted family man. He is deeply sensitive and touched by many current occurrences in this world of ours. But the one thing that introduced us to him or shall I say the two things that got us connected to him-Cricket and Hindi Film Music are also dear to his heart.

He can write pages and pages about his love for the works of Sahir Ludhianvi and ponder about what would have been Sahir’s take on the life in this age and time. And he can do the same when he writes posts on his favourite Rajesh Khanna, Dev Anand, Mohd Rafi. He has told me that he can keep listening to Rafi songs all day and night and not tire of it. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t appreciate Kishore Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan etc. He claims that he is just discovering movies of the 80s which he had banished for their deteriorating quality and quantity, he gives them a “Pass” certificate only no high marks to them. But even there he may relish and enjoy individual scene of the typical masala kind. I am sure he will enjoy the visual that the accompanying song has to offer.

It has the comic cop Paresh Rawal running around trying to dance in step with Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon. We have Tej Sapru exchanging a briefcase with an associate (would like to know who it is). Suniel Shetty is stalking them and please keep in mind that Akshay Kumar is a cop in disguise out to catch Tej Sapru and his associate.

This is a new age song which should appeal to the other birthday girl of this group. She is not an active participant and her father is. I hope she is a “Mast” child, meaning wonderful child.
There is another person, my first playmate, who has her birthday today. I cannot imagine how I was as a toddler before she entered my family in the arms of my Mom.
With this post I wish Raveena Tandon, Rajaji and the two unnamed girls “A Very Happy Birthday” May God bless them with lots of Health and Happiness.

Blog Day :

4340 Post No. : 15641

Sai Paranjpye has so far directed 8 feature films in Hindi. She has written story and script for all these films. Each of these films has some interesting background as to what prompted her to make those films. In this article, I am covering her film ‘Saaz’ (1997) which was produced by Amit Khanna under the banner ‘Pulse Films’ of the Plus Channel of which he was the managing director during 1989-2000.

Sometime in 1995-96, Plus Channel decided to produce some ‘middle-of-the-road’ films. Directors like Shyam Bengal, Basu Chatterjee, Sudhir Mishra, Aruna Raje, Gautam Ghosh and Sai Paranjpye were enlisted to direct  such genre of films which resulted in the release of films, ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996), ‘Gudgudee’ (1997), ‘Is Raat Ki Subah Nahi’ (1996), ‘Bhairavi’ (1996), ‘Gudia’ (1997) and ‘Saaz’ (1997), respectively.

Shabana Azmi had worked with Sai Paranjpye in ‘Sparsh’ (1980) and ‘Disha’ (1990). As per Sai Paranjpye’s Marathi book, ‘Sai – Maaza Kalapravaas’ (2016), one day Shabana came to her with a proposal on behalf of Plus Channel to direct a film with a woman-oriented story in which she would like to work. Sai Paranjpye accepted the proposal. The subject of sibling rivalry in the professional fields had attracted Sai Paranjpye but she had not thought of making a film on the subject. With this proposal, she thought as to why not make a film on sibling rivalry.

We are aware that there have been many instances of sibling rivalries – be in epics, history, business, media, industrial houses etc in India where there was thin line of difference between the professional and personal rivalries. According to Sai Paranjapye, sibling rivalry of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle is unique in the sense that their personal relationship by and large has remained intact over the years in the midst of their professional rivalry. And Sai Paranjpye wanted to bring this uniqueness in the film.

When Sai Paranjpye worked on the script of the film, she realised that the film was leaning towards making of a biopic on Asha Bhosle. She felt uncomfortable to make a film on such a script involving the personal lives of the siblings. Furthermore, she has no acquaintance with both the sisters.  The idea of making a film depicting Asha Bhosle was, therefore, dropped. However, in the revised script, the main theme of two playback singing sisters were kept in mind with some twists in the stories just to segregate her story from the real life story of Lata and Asha Bhosle. However, a couple of events which actually happened during the lives of  Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar were incorporated as they were in the public domain, written by those who had witness those events.

The star cast of ‘Saaz’ (1997) included Shabana Azmi, Aruna Irani, Parikshit Sahani, Raghuveer Yadav, Ayesha Dharker, Zakir Hussain, Amar Talwar, Brijbhushan Sahani, Bhupen Hazarika etc. The story, script and dialogues were written by Sai Paranjpye who also directed the film. The film was mostly shot around Mumbai. Some last part of the film were shot in Seychelles.

The film was certified by the Censor Board on 31-12-1996. But film failed to get release in theaters. The reason is stated to be the ban put by the Theater Owners Association on the exhibition of films produced by Plus Films due to the non-payment of arrears of rent from Plus Channel to some theater owners. I am not aware whether the film was released in the theater after this ban. Probably, the film got released later on TV.  It was only after reading some parts of the script of the film published verbatim in Sai Paranjpye’s Marathi book referred to above that made me to watch the film. I am pleasantly surprised to note that she has handled the theme of sibling rivalry of playback singing sisters very delicately and objectively. There are some poignant moments between the two sisters which are very heart-touching.

The film’s story has been told in a flash-back mode during Bansi’s (Shabana Azmi)’s sessions with a psychiatrist played by Parikshit Sahani. She needed this treatment as she has lost the will to sing after the death of Hemang Desai (Zakir Hussain) with whom she was in love and would have married him. In all her sessions, Bansi reveals events from her childhood to playback singing career as to how she was always played second fiddle to her elder sister. How she broke the relationship with her didi for 10 years due to snatching of her chance to sing on India’s Independence Day at Delhi. But after the sudden death of her elder sister, Bansi feels guilty of depriving  her elder sister of spending time with her daughter.  Towards the end of the film, Bansi gets a good news that her daughter has won the award as a promising playback singer. This pleasant news makes Bansi to sing live in front of the audience in Seychelles. The tape of her singing is sent to psychiatrist who comes at the airport to receive her and announces that she does not need any more treatment. So his relationship with Bansi as a doctor and a patient is over. Instead, he wants now to be her friend. The films end with both them walking together out of the airport.

In my view, this film is not one of the best among the films Sai Paranjpye has directed. Probably, in trying to make the film different from that of the sibling rivalry of Lata and Asha Bhosle, too many characters were introduced. As a result, about last one hour of film does appear some disconnect from the first part of the film which has some brilliant stamp of Sai Paranjpye. However, I feel that she has succeeded in creating sympathy of the audience for the younger sister without their malice towards the elder one.

In keeping with the subject of the story, ‘Saaz’ (1997) has as many as 11 songs (including a multiple version song). Songs are written by Javed Akhtar which have been set to music by 4 music directors – Ustad Zakir Hussain, Bhupen Hazarika, Raj Kamal and Yashwant Deo. The reason given by Sai Paranjpye for multiple music directors is that since sisters are playback singers working with different music directors, the songs in the film should reflect the different style of music direction. Two of the music directors, Ustad Zakir Hussain and Bhupen Hazarika also acted as music directors in the film.

Out of the 11 songs of the film, 3 songs have been covered in the Blog, all by Peevesie’s Mom. I am presenting the 4th song from the film which is a multiple version song. The song is “Baadal Ghumad Badh Aaye”. The male version of the song is sung by Suresh Wadkar and Kavita Krishnamurthy sings the female version. Both the versions of the song are set to music by Yashwant Deo in Raag Megh-Malhar. In the credit titles of the film, only Javed Akhtar’s name appears as a lyricist. But in reality, both the versions of the song have been written by Sai Paranjpye. There is an anecdote as to why Sai Paranjpye had to write the lyrics of the song as revealed by her in her Marathi book referred to above.

Javed Akhtar has written all the songs except the one under discussion which was last to be written. Despite repeated reminder, Javed Akhtar could not write the song. Yashwant Deo who was to set the song to music had booked the recording room and taken the dates of Suresh Wadkar and Kavita Krishnamurthy. All the musicians were also booked for the date of recording. Now only two days had left for the recording of the song but both the version of song’s lyrics was not yet ready. Just one day before the song recording date, it came to light that Javed Akhtar has gone to Khandala with a film producer. The cancellation of recording of the song would have entailed a huge loss and also the shooting schedules would have been affected entailing further loss.

Yashwant Deo mentioned to Sai Paranjpye that even if he gets the song in the morning of the song recording date, he can manage somehow to complete the rehearsals and record the song at the appointed time at noon. Sai Paranjpye came home at night and completed the lyrics of two versions of the song, foregoing her sleep. In the morning, she handed over the lyrics to Yashwant Deo and recording of the songs took place as schedule.

On return from Khandala on the next day, Javed Akhtar was shocked to learn that the songs have already been recorded. He got annoyed on Sai Paranjpye.  After 3-4 days, an executive from Plus Films came to her asking for her lyrics which Javed Akhtar wanted to read. He took lyrics to Javed Akhtar. There was no further development which meant that Javed Akhtar had no issue with the lyrics. On this issue, Shabana Azmi remained neutral.

Javed Akhtar won the National Film Award for the best lyrics in ‘Saaz’ (1997).

It is not an easy task for a novice to write lyrics based on Hindustani classical raags. The choice of words shows that Sai Paranjpye has hold over Sanskritised Hindi. For the first time, I have heard the word kanakalankrit bhor (dawn of golden colour). While the male version of the song is reflective of the onset of the rains, the female version of the song signals the end of the rains and the sun is shining giving a dawn of hope. This is symbolic for the resurgence of playback singing career of Bansi (Shabana Azmi) after she lost her will to sing.

Suresh Wadkar version of the song is pictuirsed on Raghuveer Yadhav who has played the role of a father of singing sisters, Mansi and Bansi. The picturization of the song is based on a true story in the life of Dinanath Mangeshkar who had gone to the house of Vishram Bedekar (Marathi and Hindi film director) in the midnight, drenched under heavy rains to borrow money to quench his thirst for alcohol. Bedekar taunted him by saying that it did not behove well for such a great artist to beg for money. Dinanath Mangeshkar retorted by impromptu singing a bandish in Raag Megh-Malhar and after completing the bandish, he took money from Bedekar as a present for his rendering.

Enjoy both the version of the songs in the backdrop of the approaching monsoon season.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 10
——————————————————————————

Welcome all to the today’s post where I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Saudaagar-1991’. This is one of the two movies falling under ‘Blog Ten-Year challenge’ today. Another movie is ‘Sunahri Naagin-1963’.

Only two songs (better strike rate than the current ‘one song per day’😊) were posted on the blog on this day ten years back i.e. on 14.03.2010;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Ilu Ilu Saudaagar-1991 02 of 06 songs posted
Tu hi tu hai main dekhaa karoon Sunahri Naagin-1963 05 of 08 songs posted

‘Saudaagar-1991’ is one of the many movies that I watched during my stay at Kota. I remember I watched this movie twice during its initial release. Later I have always enjoyed it in ‘parts’ whenever it was on TV channels. The main reason for watching the movie was that it was directed by Subhash Ghai (he was the producer as well) and secondly its ‘music’.
I am big fan of Subhash Ghai , not only for his direction but for the music of his movies as well.

Music has always been a ‘highlight’ of the movies directed by him and also the picturization of the song sequences in his movies which are choreographed in ‘style’.

I still remember watching ‘Ram Lakhan-1989’, ‘Saudaagar-1991’ and ‘Khalnayak-1993’ to packed houses in Kota and the audience breaking into cheers and dancing to the tunes of ‘My name is Lakhan’, ‘Ilu Ilu’, ‘Imli ka boota beri ka ped’, and other songs in ‘Ram Lakhan-1989’ and ‘Saudaagar-1991’.

Also, I cannot forget the ‘mesmerising silence’ watching the ‘artistically choreographed’ ‘Choli ke peechhe kya hai’ and the ‘picturesque beauty’ in the song ‘Paalki mein ho ke sawaar chali re’… from ‘Khalnaayak-1993’.

His collaboration with the music-duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal started with the ‘1979’ movie ‘Gautam Govinda’ and lasted till ‘Khalnayak-1993’.
Let us have a look on the list of movies where Laxmikant-Pyarelal scored the music for the movies directed by Subhash Ghai;

SNo Movie Title Year
01 Gautam Govinda 1979
02 Karz 1980
03 Krodhi 1981
04 Hero 1983
06 Meri Jung 1985
07 Karma 1986
08 Ram Lakhan 1989
09 Saudaagar 1991
10 Khalnaayak 1993

Today’s song from ‘1991’ movie ‘Saudaagar’ is picturized on the then debutant pair Manisha Koirala and Vivek Mushran. Also present in the picturization of the song is Anupam Kher who played a ‘pivotal’ role in the movie.

The song is sung by Kavita Krishnamurthy, Manhar Udhas and Sukhvinder Singh. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Two songs from ‘Saudaagar-1991’ posted on the blog earlier are as follows;

Hullo Atuldom

26th January is a national occasion which is celebrated across the country with hoisting of the national tricolour in the country’s capital New Delhi followed by the rest of the country in educational institutions, government buildings and some private housing complexes. There are speeches and parades all around showcasing india’s diverse cultures and achievements.

Our housing society too celebrates this national day with flag hoisting and a gathering of the residents. There is a small difference in that we also conduct a small Pooja the previous evening followed by small acts by the children of the apartment, dinner and games (in that order, mind it). The night always comes to an end with a game of housie and antakshari, I am going to be enjoying it this year after a long gap.

25th January happened to be the birthday of Kavita Krishnamurthy who was born Sharada Krishnamurthy in New Delhi. She is a trained classical singer who has also learnt Rabindra Sangeet. She first recorded a song under the baton of Hemant Kumar as a co-singer to Lata Mangeshkar in 1971 for a Bengali movie. In the second half of the 70s she was reintroduced to Hemantda by Ranu Mukherjee and was used as a singer in Hemantdas’ live shows from where Manna Dey spotted her and her slow journey into film music began.

Initially she was a dubbing artist and cut demos of songs intended to be sung by established singers. the 1980 release “Maang Bharo Sajna” featured a song in her own voice but was deleted from the final cut of the film. Her first major hit was in 1985 when “Pyaar Jhukta Nahin” hit the screens and “tumse milkar na jaane kyun” became a hit. From then she has been on the Indian film firmament with songs in Kannada (where she had recorded her first film song), Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati, English, Urdu, Nepali, Bengali, Odiya, Konkani etc. She was a Padmashri winner in 2005 and four time filmfare award winner. A humble and courteous human being who I had the luck to meet on one of my trips between Bangalore and Mumbai. She is very approachable and forever smiling. Here is wishing that smile stays forever.

Today we have a version of our National Song “Vande Mataram” in the voices of Kavita Krishnamurthy and Usha Uthup from the 2001 Karan Johar directed Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. We have various artists who have presented this song in their own styles. The ones which I love to hear on repeat are by Hemant Kumar in the 1952 release “Anand Math” and A.R.Rahman’s non-film version which came in 1997 which starts as “Maa tujhe salaam”. K3G had 5 songs by Jatin-Lalit, 5 by Sandesh Shandilya and one by Aadesh Shrivastva. Today’s “Vande Matram” is by Sandesh Shandilya.

Wishing everyone a Happy Republic Day. Let us try and be good citizens who are responsible towards our country with our actions.

Blog Day : 4143 Post No. : 15307

My stint as a post writer for the blog started with this song from the film “Gumnaam”. This was a Helen song, and I chose it as the song for my first post in the blog for no particular reason. Maybe it was not yet posted in the blog was the only trigger, apart from my husband suggesting it.

Another remarkable thing about my first posts was that, it got posted within a few hours of sending the mail. There were very few outside contributors who were writing posts back than in 2012, could have been one of the factors in being given such priority treatment 🙂 . Guest posters were few and lyrics contributors were many. I was one of the early song lyric contributors. Those were very heady days of finding known, much loved songs not yet posted in the blog. I remember with fondness, sending lyrics of some of my all-time favourite songs like “ ab to hai tum se har khushi apni” from “Abhimaan” and the hauntingly beautiful rendition of ‘hai tere saathh meri wafaa” from “Hindustan ki Qasam”.

Now I am a veteran of 302 lyrics and 243 posts, at last count. Lyrics contribution has stopped for obvious reason that, if I can write posts also that why would somebody else want to write them for the songs which I want posted in the blog. Sometimes I think, I should go back to sending lyrics contributions, also for no particular reason. You see random thought in the mind don’t necessarily have to be for a reason or logic.

Similar way my posts are written straight from the heart and not with too much deliberations. Though at times they may seem so, if I quote some poems and my own ‘essay’s. There have been a few posts by me which had on length discussions (my own seesaw of thoughts – if they can be called discussions) not related in anyway to the songs accompanying the posts. Some of the posts were direct from the heart and reflected my feelings, impressions etc. No matter what I have enjoyed my experience here, much misunderstood and all. I feel that language can only be source of communication, which is one dimensional only.

Going back to my first post – A Helen song. Helen Anne Richardson Khan (born Helen Anne Richardson on 21 November 1938), best known as Helen. She is turning 81 on 21st November, 2019, and this is posts to celebrate her persona and her contribution in her chosen field. Having stated this there is not much about ‘Helen’ I will be writing.

In the post (My first post) I had this to say about the film ‘Khaamoshi”(1996):

‘Not that have anything against Jatin-Lalit, in fact their score for ‘Khaamoshi – The Musical ” is one of my few favourites in this two decades. The other day, I looked up the songs of this film, solely for the Helen song “Gaate thhe pehle akele aaj gaata hai saara jahaan”, trying to find a better alternative to this song from “Gumnaam” which I am supposed to discuss. Yeh dil sun rahaa hai, mausam ki sargam ko sun, jaana suno ham tum pe marte hain, hayya haaya ho let it let let it go, and aaj main uper aasman neeche are all competing for the best song of the film(Khaamoshi-The Musical).’

Having said this much about the film in the post, I have so far managed to post only one song. So I have chosen a “Helen” song with a difference from this film as this birthday post.

In this song, Helen playing the matriarch of a Goan family, ‘Mariamma’ in the film is trying to make the best of the situation where ‘A Piano’ being family heirloom is sold to the local antique collector, Raghuvir Yadav. The Piano is maybe last thing remaining which belonged Mariamma’s husband and her link with him. As the Piano is taken away, there is procession of villagers singing and dancing, Mariamma is a part of it with her grandchildren. The Piano is finally taken away abroad a ferry, and she cannot follow it anymore. She has tried her best to mollify the children that all is not lost and those things which are lost, eventually comeback. As the song ends, Mariamma is also seen going beyond the horizon. That’s the end of the ‘Mariamma too in the film.

The singers are Kavita Krishnamoorthy, Shradha and Khusnum. The later two are new names for the blog, who sing for the kids. There is a lot of chorus and unique composition in its own way. Jatil-Lalit are the composers and Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist of this beautiful song. Helen as the Anglo-Indian elderly widow in the black and white dress, made a charming grandmother in the film. With her demise, Annie’s(Manisha Koirala) child hood is also over. The film, if the readers have not seen it, is to be recommended for any student of cinema. The reasons of this recommendation are many, and songs also is one of the reasons.

The audio version and the film version are the same, but both links are given, just that we can hear the song twice, if seen only once. Again.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ah ha, even this song. 🙂

The film is ‘Alag Alag’ from 1985. Repeating an iconic song from the 1969 film ‘Aradhna’. And surely, the important thing to note is that the repeat would have involved no negotiations etc. The director, Shakti Samant, and the song writer Anand Bakshi, are the same. The producer of ‘Aradhna’ is Shakti Samant, and the producer of ‘Alag Alag’ is Rajesh Khanna, who incidentally appears in both the films. The music director of ‘Aradhna’ is SD Burman, and the music director for ‘Alag Alag’ is his son, RD Burman. I would believe that getting permission to repeat this song would have been quite easy. 🙂

As I checked out the the earlier posted original song (on 13 Jan, 2013) I notice that this repeat song is already identified by Sadanand ji in a comment posted on 31st Oct last year. And so, this song found its entry on the blog via this series. Well, for one, it is not listed in the Geet Kosh. That is the interesting part. There are seven songs listed for this film, and the singers listed against each one. The name Kavita Krishnamurthy, the singing voice of this version of the song, does not appear against any of the listed songs. Then, in the footnote, there is compiled list of playback singers given, which includes Kavita’s name, indicating that she has sung something for this film. If one does not view the film, and is not aware of this repeat performance of this song, one will keep wondering why does Kavita Krishnmurthy’s name appears in the list of playback singers, when she has not lent her voice to any song.

The 1985 film ‘Alag Alag’ is produced by Rajesh Khanna and Kusum Narula, under the banner of Aashirwaad Films International, Bombay. With this film, Rajesh Khanna made his debut as a producer in the industry. A small anecdote is noted – that Kishore Kumar did not accept any payment for his singing assignments in this film. He said that he felt indebted to Rajesh Khanna and ‘Aradhna’ for catapulting his career to a new high, and this being Rajesh’s first film as a producer, he would sing for him without accepting any payments.

The star cast of this film is listed as Shashi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Tina Munim, Deven Verma, Sushma Seth, Gita Siddhartha, Urmila Bhatt, Anjana, Raj Rani, Rajesh Puri, Subiraj, Asit Sen, Bharat Bhushan, Bhagwan, Satyen Kappu, Mohan Choti, Birbal, Vikas Anand, Manmauji, Manik Dutt, Sunil Dhawan, Kamal Kanchan, Anoop, Pratap, Surendra, Shyam, Mohit, S Chavan, Gurubachan, with special appearance by Bindu and friendly appearances by Om Prakash and On Shivpuri.

Briefly, the story of this film is,

Tina Munim is a village belle, whose only dream in life is to marry a rich man. She comes to Bombay, meets Rajesh Khanna, and mistakes him for a rich man. When he reveals that he is not a rich man, but is a struggling singer looking for work in the film industry, she dumps him. Later in the film, we find out that he is actually a rich man’s son, who is out on his own, because his parents do not appreciate his desire to be a singer. The next set of events brings Tina to the home of Shashi Kapoor, who is a doctor and is widowed. Pursuing her goal with the single minded devotion, she now attempts to become his wife, This song is placed in the film at this juncture, as she tries to woo him.

The rest of the story is quite intertwined. Shashi Kapoor actually treats Tina Munim as a daughter. Rajesh comes to the doctor to get a false disability certificate as a reference. Tina meets him, confronts him and exposes him. Rajesh leaves, then is involved in an accident in which he loses his voice. He rejoins his family. Shashi Kapoor passes away on account of some illness. Tina is back on the road. With the help of his mother, Rajesh tries to promote Tina as a singer, without letting her know. They meet again, but Rajesh leaves because of his disability. Tina mistakes this to be that Rajesh hates her. And on goes the storyline, inching towards a happily ever after and a miraculous restoration of voice etc. 🙂

We come to this repeat song with a difference. So far in this series, most of the songs that have been reused, are presented as the original recording – barring “Babul Mora. . .” and “I Am A Disco Dancer“, which have been re-recorded in different singing voices. Today’s song also belongs to this latter group – that it is also a re-recorded version and not the original. The original, of course is Kishore Da, and in this female re-rendered version, the singing voice is Kavita Krishnamurthy.

You will notice that Tina’s attire in this song is quite similar to Sharmila’s in the original. An interesting repeat this one is. Enjoy.

रूप तेरा मस्ताना
प्यार मेरा दीवाना
रूप तेरा मस्ताना

हाय शराबी मौसम बहकाए ए ए ए ए
रूप तेरा मस्ताना
प्यार मेरा दीवाना
भूल कोई हमसे न हो जाये
