जब मैं छोटा बच्चा था, (and my, not just then. . . even now). . .

No, no I am not going to start a description of my ‘शरारती’ pranks and naughtiness. I am going to tell somethings about my favorite actor and songs; that my favorite male performer was Dev Anand. There was a charismatic attraction in his face, his smile with one out of line canine, his mannerism, and his style of dialogue delivery – all put together made for a striking package,  that would steal hearts. I am talking of the time when films like ‘Baazi’ and ‘Jaal’ and ‘Taxi Driver’ continued to be popular in re runs, and continued to be discussed as iconic films. This popular set of films was shown more than once on TV, and it would be a gala Saturday/Sunday when a Dev Anand film was scheduled. Those were days when the weekly film shows were split across the two last days of the week. And needless to say, the break was very irritating. 🙂

एक आवाज़॰॰॰
अब सो गई है
तन्हाइओं में
सिर्फ याद बाकी है

याद बाकी है
उस आवाज़ की
जो दीप के संग जली
जल जल के मरी
कुछ कह ना सकी
और कुछ कहा
तो बस यही
कोई सुने या ना सुने
हम हाल ए दिल सुनाएँगे

“Mera Dil Jal Rahaa Hai” – a dialogue that is delivered with a measured viciousness, with lancet eyes looking daggers at you, lips pinched and nose screwed, with both hands half raised in a dismissive directive to all and sundry – an utterance of extreme frustration and deepest contempt. This expression and this articulation, is a signature hallmark of the one and only comical-vampish-diabolical mother-in-law cum scheming aunt or sister. Yes, the one and only in her class in the Hindi film world – Erin Issac Daniels.

I am told that a section of movie watchers in the past were addicted to melancholism the same way some people are addicted to alcoholism. They would watch sad melancholic movies and come out of the movie hall immensely satisfied after shedding bucketful of tears during their stay in the movie hall.

Today, India is celebrating the 64th anniversary of freedom from the British rule. A movement that lasted almost 100 years – starting with disjoint uprisings against the Britishers, and the first coordinated war of independence in 1857, the struggle and resistance was carried forward by many stalwarts across the entire country. There was the nationwide resistance movement through political and social disobedience. Besides, there were other complementary movements, that added impetus to this struggle for freedom. Groups of young people, charged with the objective of bringing to end the oppressive reign of an alien government, came together in various cities in different parts of the country, and conducted local resistance and struggle. Kundan, the 1955 production from Minerva Movietone, depicts one such group of young men, as a subplot to the main theme and story of the film.

“Kundan” (1955) was a movie based on the celebrated French novel “Les Miserables”. Adapting it to Hindi movies meant that there was enough scope for melancholic songs in it 🙂 And the cast included Nimmi, who specialised in just that kind of roles. 😀

Om Prakash holds a special position amongst the comedy / character artists in the Hindi film world. Hailing from Jammu (born 1919), he started his acting career on stage. Then after a brief stint at the All India Radio in Lahore, he got his first major break in the movies in early 1940s, with the famous producer director DS Pancholi. He did some movies in Lahore, including Daasi, Dhamki, and Aayee Bahaar. After partition, he moved to Bombay. In a career that lasted a little over five decades, he is credited with acting in 300 plus films. Om Prakash has always held out on his own even in the presence of many leading lights of their times, having worked with the three great actors of 50s and 60s, down to working with Big B in the 1980s. And his repertoire is not limited to small, comedy roles only. He has a fair share of pivotal roles that he played in many movies during his career; in fact the success of many movies is attributed to his roles, viz. Chupke Chupke, Julie, Sharaabi, Namak Halaal, Gopi, Sadhu aur Shaitaan, Annadata, Buddha Mil Gaya etc.
