Hullo to all in Atuldom

I thought of putting down a few thoughts; that came to me in the last few days; on record. For one who is constantly Bangalore- Bashing as regards to the infrastructure etc, I must admit that it has given me a few PLUSes. I have been able to go for a few musical shows at some of the lovely Halls that Bangalore has. It all began with a show which was titled “Suno Mere Bandho Re” which paid tribute to S.D. Burman to the last one; about which I cannot stop myself from repeating about- where I saw my all time favourite Basanti. This is probably because of the changed working hours of the family members. I have found a little more free time here than in the period when I was a Mumbai-mother. Again the free time could be due to that fact that I go out very little on Social visits. So all things put together I find at least an hour or two to sit at my Desktop and read, listen to songs etc. This has also been the cause of my associating with the blog and getting to know a whole new set of Human Beings who have interests similar to mine. Of course for this I should whole heartedly Thank my daughter who stumbled on the blog.

“भूला हुआ फसाना हमको ना था सुनाना

As I continue to search for songs for this series, I continue to keep getting surprises. I keep uncovering uncommonly wonderful gems that either I have not heard before, or keep bumping into songs that are memories from long ago, but not heard for a long time. Today’s song is one that I am encountering for the first time. Searching for a good song starting with today’s alphabet, as I was trawling through the folders of Rafi Sb songs on my hard disk, I found this gem a few days ago. A gem that I had not heard before. The year is 1966. This song should have been in memory banks from radio listening days. But no, I do not recall having heard it before.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 34

This post will go down in the blog history as probably the most peculiar and unique post. As I begin to write these words, I have absolutely no idea what song this post is going to showcase. But still, I am starting to write this, as I have been waiting for quite some time now for things to fall in place. But they are stubbornly resisting.

‘फ’

“फुर्र से उड़ जाती थी बुलबुल”

Although he lacked the finesse and comeliness of Shammi Kapoor, yet Jeetendra did acquire the epithet of ‘Jumping Jack’ of Hindi cinema. The film was ‘Farz’ from 1967. White shoes till then, were typically a trademark of either Rajkumar, or of the villain bosses like NK Ansari etc. In ‘Farz’, Jeetendra donned these white shoes for the song “Mast Bahaaron Ka Main Aashiq”. The image captured the imagination and clicked with the audiences. And then of course, followed a string of films with songs by Jeetendra presented with the same vigor and similar mannerisms. The ‘Jumping Jack’ epithet quite stuck on now.

The saga starts in 1947. It is the runaway hit “Afsaana Likh Rahi Hoon Dil e Beqraar Ka” (film ‘Dard’). Not many artists can lay claim to such a meteoric debut. And also, not many can pride themselves with unbroken partnerships and associations with other artists, that have lasted for an entire lifetime.

‘ध’

“धीरे चल ज़रा, ओ पागल पुरवइय्या”

Vintage Rafi – that was my reaction on hearing this song, actually for the first time yesterday. And then I checked the other details, and find, this song is likely one the few very last songs that Rafi Sb would have recorded. This song comes from the 1980 vigilantes-and-robbers type story – ‘Hum Paanch’. As I chanced upon this song and started to play, my first feeling was – 1960s, or thereabouts.  The sedate rhythm and the soft rendition, gives that charmed old world feeling of the golden era. Just that the picturization visual in the video clip gives one the clue that this song is much later than 1960s.

I could not have missed the next episode in the Hindi alphabet series on Rafi Sb today. And it is by good luck that I am able to locate a song that adds one more anniversary together, and quite appropriately so.

‘त’
“तुम्हीं से हुई है शुरू और तुम्हीं पे सनम खत्म होगी कहानी हमारी”

What a gem of a delight this song is, from the 1969 film ‘Mera Dost’. As we continue to delve and search, we continue to come across as yet un-posted songs that are simply out of this world. Such wonders will not cease, I am sure for quite some time yet.

As is my wont, my attention to films of recent origin is scant and very selective.  Rather, I must say that my attention has to be drawn, nay, dragged towards a recent film, by others in my family, to make me watch one.  The 2005 film ‘Parineeta’, is one of them.  A film that I watched after it was recommended to me.  I would still consider the 1953 edition starring Meena Kumari and Ashok Kumar as the better, more mature portrayal, but nonetheless, I am verily impressed by this newer incarnation of this filming of Sarat Chandra’s classic starring Saif Ali, Vidya Balan and Sanjay Dutt.

Festivals are integral part of our culture and traditions. And the films, songs associated with mythological themes, festivals are integral part of nostalgia of music lovers like me and those who grew up listening such songs in their respective ‘formative years’ of life.
