Hullo to all in Atuldom

Only yesterday I saw a rather old episode of the TALK SHOW – back then they used to call it interview (simple)- “Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan” which Tabassum used to host. I am sure all movie/ music lovers would have seen at least one episode on Friday evenings (I think). I used to try and see it without fail. But the episode (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFFwOfs1IWw) I saw yesterday on YouTube I don’t recollect having seen in 1983. Just as well since; when I saw it yesterday it was an eye opener. It featured Anand Bakshi the lyricist.

He spoke at length on various topics, but what stuck with me was his answer to Tabassum’s question about the shelf life of songs, why do modern songs fade from public memory as soon as the movie is out of the theatres. (I have provided the link for those interested). He gave example of one the two most famous songs of the Subhash Ghai directed “Karz” (1980). Way back in 1983, when that interview happened, he didn’t expect that “meri umar ke naujawaanon —om shanti om” would remain for long in public memory, but we know otherwise. It is still very much popular so much so that Farha Khan not only used it for her movie title but also used that entire song in her movie. complete with Subhash Ghai directing Rishi Kapoor. That sequence was in Farha Khan’s movie to introduce her protagonist Om.

There is another Subhash Ghai movie of the 80s which people don’t recall that frequently, but it was a big hit back then. It was one of the three super successful movies of Anil Kapoor that year. I know it was later remade into Tamil (Oru Taayin Shabhatham by T. Rajender) and Telugu and Kannada as well. I am talking of Meri Jung (1985) which starred Girish Karnad, Nutan and Amrish Puri (making the older generation) with Anil Kapoor leading the young brigade of Khushboo (his sister) Meenakshi Seshadri, and Javed Jaffery who made his debut in this movie as Amrish Puri’s wayward son; who has Khushboo falling in love with him; which conveniently helps the two warring advocates -Anil Kapoor and Amrish Puri.

Remember once before I had wondered how multi-talented the advocates in our movies are (In this when Vinod Khanna jumped over walls to get something from Leena Chandavarkar’s room). “Meri Jung” has Anil Kapoor just swallowing some medicine which is supposed to be poison in court to prove his client Bina’s innocence. I am sure no one is allowed to touch evidences like that in court but anything is acceptable in Indian movies. Remember one bottle collecting blood directly from three donors at the same time. (which movie I know the readers will guess. 🙂 )

Since we talked of Meri Jung (1985) let us have a song from the movie today. It is a dance number by the oh-so beautiful Meenakshi Seshadri. How I wish she had not quit movies for familial life but then it was her personal choice to leave when still on top. She has left us a treasure trove of great songs to choose from whenever we think of her.

And why am I thinking of her today? Obviously, its her birthday today (16 november 2017). And what better than a dance number. We are just floored by her beauty and why not she was a Miss India. I was a fan of her’s and loved her movie selections- Jurm, Satyamev Jayate, Daamini, Ghaayal, Swati etc and don’t mind excusing he “Shahenshah” “Ganga Jumna Saraswati” etc (who would say know to sharing screen space with the Amitabh Bachchan.) Post her retirement she is settled in the US going back to her first love – classical dances. She runs a dance academy. Here is wishing her health wealth and happiness in life.

Today’s song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi-Pyare are the music composers. The song is a dream of Meenakshi and she gets to dance on Mumbai’s Madh Island on a giant PIANO among other things. People didn’t call Subash Ghai a showman just like that. 🙂

‘Hero’(1983) was produced and directed by Subhash Ghai for Mukta Arts Limited, Bombay. Introducing newcomer pairs in lead roles was the in thing those day. It had started with ‘Bobby’(1973), which was followed by ‘Love Story’(1980), ‘Rocky’(1981) and then ‘Betaab’(1983).

‘Hero’(1983) introduced Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri. That way, ‘Hero’ differed from the above mentioned movies where well established actor fathers had produced those movies to launch their sons. As it is well known, ‘Bobby’(1973) was the launch vehicle for Rishi Kapoor (produced by Raj Kapoor), ‘Love Story’(1980) was produced by Rajendra Kumar for his son Kumar Gaurav, ‘Rocky’(1981) was produced by Sunil Dutt to launch his son Sanjay Dutt while ‘Betaab’(1983) was produced by Dharmendra for his son Sunny Deol. So full marks to Subhash Ghai for not indulging in nepotism. 🙂

All these movies had well established actors to play supporting roles, viz ladke ka baap, ladki ka baap etc. 🙂

The support cast of ‘Hero’(1983) makes for an impressive read. Former heartthrob Shammi Kapoor plays ladki ka baap and Police commissioner. Bharat Bhushan, a hero from an even earlier era, is also there. Whose who of baddies, viz Amrish Puri, Madan Puri and Shakti Kapoor are there too take care of the dirty tricks department.

Last but not the least, this movie also had Sanjeev Kumar. Unlike other actors, who would only play one kind of a role in which they were typecast, Sanjeev Kumar could play any role, without worrying how it would be received. And invariably he would pull off any kind of roles. He would play the husband, father and father in law of the same actress in different movies and he would be accepted in all three roles. He has acted opposite Jaya Bhaduri in all three kinds of roles. He would also act as the father of actors who were in his own age group or even older to him. He played father of Shahshi Kapoor in ‘Trishool’(1979) who was older to him in age. 🙂

He played not one or two, but as many as nine roles in the film ‘Naya Din Nayi Raat’ (1974).

He played lots and lots of memorable roles during his two decades long career. Thakur of ‘Sholay’ (1975) readily comes to mind. In fact, it is difficult to find a role where he failed to do justice to the role, be it a mental patient in ‘Khilona’ (1970) or as the husband of a female politician in ‘Aandhi’ (1975).

His roles won him critical acclaims from public, film industry as well as Government of India. He was nominated for Filmfare award 14 times and he won the Filmfare best lead actor for his roles in ‘Aandhi’ and ‘Arjun Pandit’ (1976). He had also won the award as the best supporting actor in ‘Shikaar’ (1968). He got the best actor award from Government of India for ‘Dastak’ (1970) as well as ‘Koshish’(1972). His role in ‘Angoor’ (1983) has been listed among the top 25 acting performance in Indian movies by the ‘Forbes’ magazine.

It is difficult to believe that Sanjeev Kumar (9 july 1938 – 6 november 1985) was only 47 years old when he passed away, with his cupboard full of awards and his cap full of feathers. His lack of discipline in taking care of his lifestyle was primarily to blame. Losing him at such a young age was a big loss to Indian cinema in general and Hindi cinema in particular.

On the occasion of the 33rd death anniversary of Sanjeev Kumar, here is a song from ‘Hero’. the song is picturised as a qawwaali song, cum villain’s den song, cum dancing under duress song etc etc. 🙂

The song is sung by Suresh Wadkar, Lata and chorus. It is lip synced by Sanjeev Kumar, Meenakshi Sheshadri and others. The occasion is graced by Shammi Kapoor as well as a galaxy of villains. 🙂

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. So this song, in addition to paying tribute to Sanjeev Kumar, serves as a belated greeting song for the birthday of Laxmikant as well (which fell on 3 November).

Lyrics of this song are sent to me by Peevesie’s mom, who on this occasion is unable to provide a write-up for a change as she is travelling.

In India, a typical Indian male is likely to be interested in Hindi movies and cricket. Typical Indian females are likely to be interested in Hindi movies and TV serials. 🙂

I have been a typical Indian male for many years now. 🙂 I was interested in Hindi movies right from my childhood, viz 1960s. I became interested in cricket from early 1970s.

In those days, one needed to go to movie halls to watch movies. One followed international cricket on radio. Just a few lucky people would be able to watch the match live on the ground.

Nowadays, one can watch all kinds of movies as well as all kinds of cricket matches in the luxury of our homes on TV. One can watch/ follow them on mobile, computers etc as well. That way, following movies and cricket has come a long way from the days of 1960s.

TV channels as well as the content providers (be they movie makers or cricket boards), that dish up the fare that we watch, do not rest on their oars. They constantly reinvent themselves.

As a sports lover, I always thought that Indians needed to follow more sports than just cricket. We in India give undue importance to cricket to the detriment of other sports.

Most armchair critics like us only criticise and we do not do much to address such issues, but the good thing is that some people have actually started addressing these issues. We now have people who have started to promote other sports as well. If we have IPL in cricket, then we have similar leagues in quite a few other less popular sports as well, viz in Hockey, football, badminton, Kabaddi etc. that are being promoted and covered by a few TV networks.

I must admit that I did not watch these coverage till last year. My view was that the standard of India in these sports like say Football was abysmal and organising this football league was unlikely to help matters. About Kabbadi, my view was that it is played in India and neighbouring countries, so what was so great watching a sports that was not even a global sport.

In MP, government lady employees could take childcare leave for upto two years till their child was under 18 years old. Our daughter, then undergoing medical coaching was a few months short of turning 18, so my wife decided to avail childcare leave for the few months for which she was eligible. So she took childcare leave for those months and came over to stay with me in UP. It was supposed to be a childcare leave, but in reality, it turned out to be a husband and pets care leave for her. 🙂

It was in late 2015 that my wife joined me in UP at my place of posting.

My wife had watched the first two editions of PKL (Pro Kabaddi League) and it was on her insistence that I began to watch third season of PLK beginning in january 2016. Initially I watched it grudgingly, but soon I realised that what I was watching was a thrilling sport that required tremendous skill and that I was watcing the best practitioners of the sport in this PKL.

The rules of kabaddi in PKL were modified to make it a thrilling and fast paced sports, which was a far cry from the image of a largely dull and boring rustic sport that it was perceived to be till then. In traditional kabaddi, one could keep playing empty raids ad infinitum, making it a dull and negative spectacle. In PKL, only two empty raids in a row were allowed, and the third raid was a “do or die” raid. Other innovative modifications were bonus point for the raider when six or seven defenders were playing and super tackle for the defenders when three or less defenders were around.

I and my wife would religiously watch TV together in the evening to watch PKL matches. Both of us independently arrived at the decision to “adopt” Patna Pirates as the team to support. The eight teams, all named after various Indian cities, would move in a caravan to the cities of each of the teams in turn. Every team played every other team twice (home and away). The top fours teams advanced to the semifinals. The number one team of a group played number four, while the number two and three teams played the other semifinal.

Patna Pirates, wo looked like the strongest team in the tournament went on to become the champions when they narrowly defeated U Mumba in the final. Rohit Kumar, the Patna Pirates raider impressed everyone and he was the man of the tournament.

The fourth season of PKL was played in june and july of 2016. Patna Pirates once again proved to be the strongest team and they retained the title by defeating Pink Panthers in the final. Rahul Chaudhary of Telugu Titans was the man of the tournament though it was Pardeep Narwal of Patna Pirates who really caught the eyes of the fans with his spectacular escapes from defenders through “dubkis”.

The fifth season of PKL is in progress now. The four seasons of PKL have seen audiences growing up by leaps and bounds. Just as I joined in the third seasons, many more people have begun to follow PKL. It has in fact now become the second biggest sporting league in India after IPL.

The fifth season of PKL is a vastly expanded affair. Now there are twelve teams, grouped into two groups of six teams each. Each teams play other teams in the group thrice and play the teams of other group once. So every team plays 22 matches. The finalists are selected by a method similar to that followed by IPL.

This season was four months long. It was a calculated risk but the organisers seem to have succeeded in their gamble. They managed to keep the watches glued to their TV screen for four months.

The six teams of North (Dabang Delhi, Haryana Steelers, Jaipur Pink Panthers) and West (U Mumba, Puneri Paltan, Gujarat Fortunegiants) were placed in group A, whereas Group B had teams from East (Patna Pirates, Bengal Warriors, U P Yodda) and South (Telugu Titans, Bangalore Bulls and Tamil Thalaivas).

It was interesting to note that new teams, viz Gujarat Fortunegiants, Haryana Steelers and UP warriors did well. It is Tamil Thalaivars, another new team that failed to win much and finished at the bottom of their group.

Initial matches gave the indication that Patna Pirates, despite losing many of their players to other teams in the auction, were the team to beat. It was mainly because of the brilliance of Patna Pirates raider Pardeep Narwal who had looked unstoppable in the previous season and looked just as irrepressible in the earlier matches of the current season.

But as the matches wore on, it turned out that other teams had worked out their strategies to tame Pardeep Narwal. The implementation of their strategies was the main thing. Often the opposition wopuld keep Pardeep Narwal at bay for say 30 minutes out of 40, still he would change the match topsy turvy in the remaining ten minutes of the match.

One can see that the PKL has evolved with time. Many players have moved over to new teams. Teams have worked out new strategies.

Though most players are Indians, every team has some foreigners too. Kabaddi is the national game of Bangladesh as well, but the country which can be said to be the strongest in Kabaddi after India is Iran. They are the only other team apart from India which has a good Kabaddi set up. Most foreigners in PKL are from Iran and they are very important parts of their respective teams.

Ironically, the most popular and most successful foreigner is not an Iranian but a Korean ! Jang Kun Lee is the star raider of Bengal Warrior and he was in fact their skipper in the past. How he and a few other Koreans took to Kabaddi and became this good could be a case study. He really caught the eye of kabaddi watchers in the previous two seasons.

As mentioned earlier, there are quite a few Iranians in various teams. One of them, viz Meraj Sheikh is in fact the captain of the Dabang Delhi team. Abolfazal Maghsodlu is the other Iranian player in the team.

But the two Iranians who have had a major role in their team’s fortune are Fazal Atrachali and Abozar Mighani. Both of them are defenders and they are with Gujarat Fortunegiants. Theie robust tackles have made their team’s defence the strongest in the tournament.

Gujarat Fortunegiants, one of the four new teams in PKL, appear to have done their homework in great detail. They decided to have strong tacklers as well as tall raiders. While their defence is the strongest in the tournament, their raiders, who were largely unknown names till now have really proved out to be surprise packages in the tournament.

Gujarat Fortunegiants have also done something that no other team did ! They brought in a foreigner as their physiotherapist. This foreign physiotherapist is a female. Olivia Witek is from Poland. She is no stranger to contact sports. A trained sports medicine expert in the past, she has been the physiotherapist of Poland American rules Rugby team. She was the physiotherapist of the Polish Kabaddi team that visited India in 2016 to participate in the Kabaddi world cup that was held in Ahmedabad. Perhaps it was during this visit that she caught the eyes of Adanis, who were then recruiting staff for their soon to be launched kabaddi team. It must be said that her training regime must have done a world of good to the players of her team, seeing that Gujarat Fortunegiants are actually in the final of PKL to be played today (28 october 2017). In addition to her to putting her players through their paces, she also serves as an attractive cheergirl for her team in all their matches. I find that she, like me, has two dogs back home. That must be the secret of her success in her profession. 🙂

Patna Pirates, the two times defending champions are the other team in the final and they will seek to make it three titles in a row. It should be a grand and riveting finale seeing that the two teams are easily the best teams in the tournament. I am keenly looking forward to the final that will be played tonight (28 october 2017). And this match will be watched worldwide. Starsports, now a majority stakeholder in PKL is playing a big role in popularising Kabaddi world wide with their TV coverage of this tournament. I have certainly become a PKL fan and I cannot wait to watch the final. This tournament showcasing the native Indian sport of Kabaddi is being sponsored by Vivo, a Chinese company. So Chinese companies too recognise the potential of Kabaddi. Hindi Chini Bhai bhai. 🙂

Kabaddi is an Indian sport but it is surprising that Hindi movies do not have many Kabaddi songs in them. The most well known (some will say the only one) song on Kabaddi is from “Naseeb”(1981). This song, “Pakdo pakdo pakdo” shows two teams playing Kabaddi. The rules of this kabaddi match are much more creative and innovative than even the PKL rules. 🙂 For once, this Kabaddi match is between a male team (led by Rishi Kapoor) and a female team (led by Kim). Both teams have ten players each, far in excess of the figure of seven, but then who in Hindi movies knows how to count. 🙂 And the moves made by the players in this match cannot be found in any Kabaddi coaching manual. 🙂

The male team is coached by Jeewan and the female team by Shubha Khote. Instead of taking interest in their teams performance, the two are shown taking interest in each other throughout the song. 🙂

The song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Today’s post is under instructions from my husband- Peevesie’s Dad. Oh yes, he is a silent-satulite (a term coined by team Atulites when referring to spouses of Atulites, the term has no geographical or scientific connotation and will be found only in Atulite-lingo 🙂 ). He had asked me to write a post after we returned from a pilgrimage of Sabarimala, which is the abode of Swami Ayyappa. And as far as possible I fulfil every farmaish/ request of his (actually the children, Peevesie more than her brother, rag the two of us for going out of our way to fulfil each other’s requests- there have been no demands between the two of us only requests).

Hullo Atulwaasis

Today’s(3 september 2017) post is inspired by this post of Atulji. To be more exact I have been saving up this post ever since this was posted and this was mentioned in the comments by Bharatji and Maheshji.

I was saving this song to present it on the occasion of the birthdate of two people involved in this song.

In India, we are often required to attend get togethers (formal/ officials as well as informal/ unofficial etc). Singing of a few film songs is almost always a part of these gatherings, which are sung by enthusiastic singers and their performances are followed by polite clappings.

The songs that are sung on these gatherings are mostly from the golden era originally sung by legends. I often think of that era when these legends were still around me. I would often imagine a gathering where songs were sung not by the enthusiastic singers but by the singers who originally sang these songs. Just imagine participating in a programme where Rafi songs are being sung live by none other than Rafi himself !

Hope all fine here.

Today (8 june 2017) I am posting a song which falls right in the category of “How come this is not yet posted?!?!” But that is how this blog of ours (Atul’s) is. Even after 13300 songs we still have songs for the “How come” category.

Yesterday (27 april 2017), sometime around noon, I got to hear the very sad news that Vinod Khanna had passed away.
I had logged onto Twitter for a bit – and immediately saw a tweet saying “One of the most handsome actors of Hindi movies. RIP”. My heart sank. Soon it was clear that the person being discussed, and now trending as a hashtag, was our own beloved Vinod Khanna.

Recently a picture of Vinod Khanna had been circulating on social media. It shocked many (including myself) as it showed him in a very frail condition. I, for one, was not even aware that he was ailing. But nowadays, with advances in medical science, you tend to expect recovery, especially for someone barely 70.

It was not to be.

The end was therefore unexpected for me – and I think, for many.
