Hullo to all in Atuldom

People talk about the rich voice quality that Amitabh Bachchan has – the baritone etc. But has it occurred to anyone that there are and were and will be other actors who have or had similar voice? One such voice was that of Mogambo. There are tales that tell how the makers of “Mr. India” went from Danny to Amjad Khan to any other known faces of that era to play the character of Mogambo. Each one had his own reason for not taking up that character and eventually Amrish Puri ended up being The Mogambo and now it is impossible to even imagine any other person as Mogambo. I am unable to distinguish the man from the character and part of the power in the role was the voice of the actor.

Readers of this blog might now be familiar with a certain pattern of posts on this blog.

While there are posts which focus largely on the song, or the film, or even personal anecdotes, one common pattern is the celebration of anniversaries and milestones, in a post.

The anniversaries are our way of paying tribute to the artiste concerned. Whoever the artiste, whether a composer or lyricist or actor, whatever his level of fame in the industry, we try to remember and honour him on his birth or death anniversary.

People who are into stock markets try to guess the movement of shares based on past pattern of their price movement. I think that the principles of stock market indexes can be used to make guesses about my activities as well. If lots of songs are being discussed then it could mean that I have lots of time at my disposal, little pressure of work, family, pets etc and that my internet connection, electricity connection etc are co operating. 🙂

The best memory I have of this artist is the visual from ‘Araadhna’ (1969), sitting in the driver seat, looking crisp and dapper in a suit and matching cap, driving single handedly and playing mouth organ with the free hand, maneuvering the vehicle so that it keeps pace with the small toy train as it wounds its way on the hilly trek to Darjeeling, thus enabling a free hand to Rajesh Khanna to perform his gymnastics in the open top vehicle, as he belts out the now iconic “Mere Sapnon Ki Rani Kab Aayegi Tu”, serenading a coy Sharmila Tagore sitting in a window seat of the train, hiding her face behind Alistair MacLean’s novel, ‘When Eight Bells Toll’, but also peeking from the edges of the book that she is obviously not reading.

This is a Sonu Nigam song from the 1997 film Pardes. It happens to be one of those songs which were in my original list of desert songs. This is a Subhash Ghai film starring Shah Rukh Khan, Apoorva Agnihotri, Mahima Chaudhary, Amrish Puri, Anupam Kher etc. This was Mahima Chaudhary’s first film. And as per his penchant for naming the heroines he would launch in his movies, Subhash Ghai has given her the name ‘Mahima’. Just like, Meenakshi (Hero) and Madhuri (Ram Lakhan) etc. Having seen the film on its release, this song is there in the memory as one with a car driving fast on the interstate in the middle of desert. On seeing it again Irealised that only a little part of the song is on the road, in a car. The rest of it is in Las Vegas and Disney land.

Most of the songs posted in this blog are from 1970s and earlier. It is because I like to post those songs that people love to listen to even today. Most songs of 1990s and later are not as timeless as the earlier songs. In fact , many of these songs are forgotten within a few weeks after they are released.

Here is a lovely 1970 style song from 1997. The movie is ” Raja Hinsdustani” and listening to this song almost reminds me of the movie “Asha”(1980) and its dhaba song “Jaane ham sadak ke logon se mahlo waale kyun jalte hain”.
