Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 3
——————————————————————–

This is a very special day, a very special occasion. Our leader of the Blog, Atul ji, has completed individual 10,000 posts.

What an achievement ! 10,000 song posts, with Lyrics and a related text to go with it, posted by a single person !!

This must enter the Record Books !!!

I first came across the Blog, sometime in late 2010 or may be early 2011. I was quite impressed with the presentation, collection of the songs and the comments made by readers. My first comment on the Blog was to appreciate Atul ji and the efforts taken by the Blog to present old songs,with lyrics. Slowly,I started giving my own comments on the Blog. Encouraged by Atul ji and others, I soon became a regular here and shared what I knew about old films and its music.

In the process of commenting, my first article (post) was posted on the Blog on 1-10-2012. Atul ji was kind enough to write the lyrics of the song, on my behalf. (This special help in lyrics writing continues even today – after more than 570 song posts – thanks to his generosity 🙂 ). Atul ji was very encouraging and prodded me to continue writing regularly. I too learned quite a lot from the comments of readers on various songs daily. It actually became a routine for me to visit the Blog first thing in the morning and following it through the entire day. I know many of the regulars too have this same habit.

Though I was very active on internet and was a member of several groups, and my articles were posted on different sites, blogs and group fora, my heart remained with Atul ji’s Blog. This was because I was impressed with his dedication and hard work in keeping the flock together and serving the music lovers of the world. As per a report by Word Press, this Blog  reaches 298 countries of the world in all continents and Atul ji’s songs give joy and pleasure to millions all over. During the last few years I met several regulars of the Blog and also attended Gangouts in Mumbai and Bengaluru. This Blog gave me several online friends,

In all these years, I was very curious to know who this Atul ji is. In due course of time, I came to know more about him, saw his photographs and even became his “friend “on Facebook, when he started his own page. I, however, missed the golden opportunity to meet him personally, when he attended the first ever Gangout in Mumbai in December 2014, which I could not attend unfortunately. Meanwhile we became quite well known to each other by exchange of mails, Whatsapp and Blog’s multiple activities.

I have always wondered, what sort of energy this person has ! How does he manage his job, family life and the Blog activity- all at the same time? Atul ji’s posts are full of knowledge and statistics. The kind of joy Atul ji has provided to the millions of music lovers all over the world is simply incomparable. It is a matter of pride that he runs a unique Blog, which is perhaps the only one of its kind in the whole world ! All this prompted me to write a small poem on Atul ji…..

suno ji suno,
yeh hai mera pyara
sub ka dil lubhaanewala,
Gaanewala, Ranchiwala……..1

ye koi khel nahi hai
itna aasan nahi hai
yadein taaza karnewala
Gaanewala, Ranchiwala…….2

duniya is ko dekh rahi hai
gaane sunke khoj rahi hai
hai bhala kaun ye dilwala
Gaanewala, Ranchiwala……3

is ke pyar mein doobi duniya
is ko chaahe saari duniya
kahaan hai pyaara geetonwala
Gaanewala,Ranchiwala…..4

geeton ki is yatra mein
hum sab iske saathi hain
sub ko saath lenewala
Gaanewala, Ranchiwala…..5

naayak ho to aisa ho
khushiyan apni baatnewala
har yaatri ko chaahnewala
Gaanewala, Ranchiwala…..6

sab ke dil mein ek hi naara
neta ho to aisa pyaraa
Atul ji jaisa bade dilwala
Gaanewala,Ranchiwala…..7 

I wish Atul ji and the Blog many more achievements and peaks of successes.

Coming to today’s song, it is actually not a song I would normally discuss, but I have selected this song because it is from a significant film in the career of my favourite star – The Fearless Nadia. In fact, this film was her swansong. After this film (Khiladi-1968), she bid a final good bye to Hindi film world, in which she was the Queen of Stunt Films, right from 1933 to 1968.

At the time of this film, she was already 60 years old, but if you see this film, she exhibited the same skills, for which she was the Darling of Millions in her hey days. Fearless Nadia was a phenomenon of the Hindi film industry. Neither before her nor after her, was there so daring a lady who did all her thrilling stunts herself. She fought with 8 to 10 persons at a time, lifted men in the air, was an expert in fencing, fighting, driving, riding, jumping and handled ferocious animals like tigers, lions etc.

I was a great fan of her films from young age (even now) and must have seen at least 20-25 of her films. I always dreamt meeting her some day,in person. My dream came true on the morning of 23rd July 1984, when I actually met Fearless Nadia and talked to her !

It so happened that those days Nadia was staying in Colaba area of south Bombay and everyday morning, used to take her dog for a walk in a park nearby. One of my good friends, Sharma ji also lived in that area. He once told me this. I expressed my desire to meet her and he made a plan. He too used to visit that park and knew Nadia well as a neighbour. I went on 22nd July to stay with Sharma ji. Next day early morning, we got ready and went to the park. As expected, Nadia came there with her dog. Sharma ji greeted her and introduced me as a great fan of her films. I was simply thrilled. I rattled out 10-15 names of her films, which I had seen. She was naturally impressed and talked to me for about 15 minutes. Then we parted. I shall always cherish those moments in my life.

Film Khiladi-68 was a spy crime thriller, having some really spectacular stunts, which reminded the older films of Nadia. Actually, the film opens with a scene showing some people firing on Nadia. The cast of the film had Dilip Raj as its hero. This Dilip Raj was the eldest son of legendary actor P. Jairaj. Unfortunately, Dilip Raj was not only a flop and bad actor, but also a bad and ungrateful son. He extracted so much money from Jairaj by deceit, that Jairaj had to go to court to evict his son from his house. He cheated his father and tried to usurp all his estate and throw Jairaj out of his own house!

Dilip Raj acted as a Hero in only 5 films and total 26 films in all from 1956 to 2013. His best known film was ‘Shehar Aur Sapna’ (1963).

The Hindu, the well known daily published a review of film Khiladi (1968), recently on 24-2-2017. Considering the gap of almost 50 years, it was quite a reflection of people’s love for Fearless Nadia even in this era ! Here is the review-

As Vishal Bhardwaj pays tribute to Fearless Nadia in “Rangoon”, let’s go back to the action-star’s last hurrah at the box office to figure out how Nadia was the mother of all Khiladis in Hindi cinema. Here she virtually plays one. As Agent Madam XI, she grooms and protects Pratap or Agent 707 (Dilip Raj), who is out to ensure the release of an atomic scientist who has been kidnapped by evil forces for the formula that he has created. As the names suggest, the Homi Wadia film is a tribute to the James Bond variety of cinema.

There is an agent called Udti Chidiya but the best is reserved for Nadia, who is christened Living Fireball, perhaps a tribute to her long innings as the action queen of Hindi cinema. From giving demonstration of bullet proof jackets to changing get-ups in every other scenes, the focus is on the ageing star. Born as Mary Evans, the Australian origin actor made a mark in Hindi films much before Bollywood discovered the Katrina Kaif template. She fostered a strong bond with Wadia, whose Basant Studios was famous for mythologicals and action-adventures. The duo gave a series of hits but find little mention every time history of Hindi cinema is recounted. Recently, when Mahesh Bhatt chronicled the history of studios in India through a television series Basant was missing from the list despite the fact that his father Nanabhai Bhatt also closely worked with Wadia.

Today, they might look predictable but some of the action sequences in “Khilari” can still give goose bumps. The explosions in air and water look believable and the kind of scale Wadia has been able to achieve with limited resources is commendable. The gadgets are futuristic. A gun which fires in reverse, a belt which works as an iron cutter, Pratap even has a drone like device to send signals.

Style Statement
A limited actor, Dilip also gets to explore the flirtatious side of this genre so that Wadia could bring in an element of glamour and use the talent of Lala-Sattar. In action sequences, Dilip looks a little limp and his karate style, in fact, evokes unintentional humour. But that’s fun of Wadia style of entertainment. It was never meant for the discerning but always kept the front benchers on the edge.

If cynics could free themselves from the tyranny of ‘taste’, there is lot to read in these films. High on style and sensuality, they catered to the baser instincts of the audience but provided its female characters agency to find their way in the society. Wadia’s female characters could frequent spaces which were not meant for Hindi film heroines. Nadia was the star in this league, a female Robin Hood, who could ride horses, crack the whip and make lecherous men fall in line. It was in contrast to the patriarchy that the so called A-grade cinema of the time perpetuated.

Here the villain of the piece is also a woman called Golden Dragon played by Sujata who doesn’t hold back her lust for Pratap. With a dragon tattooed on her back, her den could give competition to Shaakaal’s lair in “Shaan”, made a decade later.

Then there is Suzie, another strong female character, who lays down her life to protect her father and Pratap. Tun Tun provides comic relief as Miss Beauty. It is this equal universe that makes “Khilari” a fair game.

With this song, film Khiladi-68 is making a debut on this Blog. All the 5 songs were written by Lyricist Farooque Qaiser. The music was by the duo of Lala-Sattar. The singers are Rafi and Asha Bhosle.  On screen, the song is performed by Dilip Raj accompanied by an actress that I am not able to identify. A look at the list of actors indicates that this actress could be Uma, but I am not certain. I request other friends and readers to help identify her.


Song – Aao Ji Aao Na, Dil Mein Samaao Na (Khilaadi) (1968) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Farooque Qaiser, MD – Lala Sattaar

hum bhi tumhaare hain

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 1
——————————————————————–

On this blog, one thing we enjoy is, celebrations.  🙂

We are always looking for an opportunity to celebrate – and every other day, we get a reason to do so. Often it is somebody’s birthday or birth anniversary, or a milestone of a 100th or 1000th song for an artiste, or for the blog. And even if it is a death anniversary, which is not really a cause for celebration, we use the occasion to pay tribute to the concerned artiste. Many of my own posts fall in this category. An occasion gives me an opportunity to reminisce and share my thoughts.

Lingering memories, fading in, successively, in a shuffle sequence, as the charmed mind tries to follow and decipher all the fine nuances and entertaining devices, contained in this immortal, unforgettable voice – that of Rafi Sb.

“सावन की परी चुप चुप है खड़ी

I came across this song for the first time, few weeks ago. It has been sitting in the hard disk for quite some time now, one of a set of songs of Rafi Sb that Bakshish Singh ji gave to me. On some prompting thought in the mind, I just played this song, as I was searching for a song starting with ‘स’, and goodness, just could not believe that this wonderful gem of a song has been sitting away from mainstream listening. Later, when I checked online, this song is posted on YT more than once, implying it is not so rare as I would imagine. Oh but, what a song, what a song.

“शम्मा बुझने को चली

Of the many colors of Rafi Sb’s voice, probably the most touching, and the most impressive is his interpretation of the emotions of sadness. Maybe, it be so that the “. . . sweetest songs are the ones that tell of the saddest thoughts” (from the poetry of Percy Shelley, that inspired the iconic song of ‘Patita’ (1953) – “Hain Sab Se Madhur Wo Geet Jinhen Hum Dard Ke Sur Mein Gaate Hain”). And maybe, that the genuineness and honesty of expressions that go together with the unfeigned and substantive voice of Rafi Sb, it simply makes us feel the true depth of this ‘sweetness’ – a sweetness that touches a very familiar, a very dear chord within.

“वो चाँद सा चेहरा लिए, छत पर तेरा आना

tu raat khadi thi chhat pe
nee main samjha ke chaand nikla

There is something so uniquely desi about this romantic element – ‘chhat pe’ – ‘on the rooftop’ scenario. If it were the western milieu, the thought would be to go as far as the balcony; the scenario being Juliet present at the balcony and Romeo serenading her from the garden below. No where the western writer has thought of ascending to the terrace, bring in the soubriquet of the moon, and then let the verse take over from there. On the subcontinent, so much romance seems to have happened on the terrace, in the pages of prose and in the lines of verse.

OK, back again, even a longer absence this time. About these gaps, the less I say is better, because everything sounds like an old story. So I will let it be. 🙂

Coming the next installment in this series of Rafi Sb songs.  Today, I present a solo by Rafi Sb, from the 1960 film ‘Naache Nagin Baaje Been’.

Goodness, more than four months now that the previous episode in this series was posted (29th Sep, 2016). Not a record, I must say. There are some other series (by me) (sic) in progress that have been waiting much much longer to be completed. But then, this scenario makes me marvel more and more on how Atul ji is able to pull the progression of this bandwagon, single handedly, day after day after day. I have been excusing myself on account of too much time pressure on my personal side of life. And  then I think, well, my situation is not very unique, and I am sure that there are similar constraints that are present in the lives of everyone else. And thus, I tip my hat to Atul ji, for his tenacity and perseverance. On his shoulders, the bandwagon rolls on and on. . .

“ये काली काली ज़ुल्फें और गोरा गोरा चेहरा

vagairah
vagairah
vagairah

Wow and wow, what a song. Same story, same pattern – production house is obscure, film is obscure, actors not so well accepted as grade A material, music director not so well recognized as top of the line. And that is where we find some the most titillating gems of music. Under different circumstances, this song could have been top of charts. E.g. if this song was performed on screen by, say, Shammi Kapoor, well then it would have been treated as a hit, and would have found its place in the listings of timeless classics of Rafi Sb’s fun songs.

One of the more easily recognizable figures on the Hindi film screen. There are two hallmark identifications, with which we can easily pick out Asit Sen (the actor). The first one is his size. It is remarkable that he maintained his figure through the entirety of his career. One can see him in his earliest appearances in films like ‘Do Bigha Zameen’, playing the role of a seller of sweets and savories, and then also see him in films after three decades – ‘Mera Karam Mera Dharam’ (1987), playing the role of school headmaster. There is no change in his physique. For the number of years one sees him on screen in the same physical dimensions, the thought almost comes into the mind – maybe this is how he was born. 🙂
