Songs from Artiste Name Films….Second Season….No. 5
——————————————————————-

Do you know who these people were ?

Elizer, S M Hadi, Miss Gangoo, Jagdish, D.Sarkari, Surajram, M.Isaq, Hyder Shah, Miss Manjula, Keki Adjania, S.Baburao, Baba Vyas, Rustam Irani, Master Fakir……the list is long.

I am sure hardly anyone knows them. Mind you, they are not Extras,they are in the credits of a film. OK, let me try with another set. Perhaps you might recognise someone.

Vaskar, K B Laal, Raja Babu, Chandrika, Chunilal, S Alam, Pt. Kaul, Javdekar, tarun Kumar, Swarup Rani, Kunjuru, Haridas, Dilawar, Sudha Apte etc etc ….The list is long. Still No ? Ok. Last Chance. I am sure, this time you will identify a few names at least…..

Tiwari, Chandbala, Indira Bansal, Gulab, Heeralal, Murad, Moolchand, Nazir kashmiri, Jankidas, Abu Bakar, Sankatha prasad, Narbada Shankar, Chaman Puri, Mirajkar etc etc. The List is long. Atlast, you could identify some actors.

Friends, all the above artistes fall under the category of “Character actors”. The first and second list was of Character artists from the 30’s and 40’s films.The third list was from the 50’s films, hence some names were familiar.

Unfortunately, the condition of the character artistes is like this. No recognition, no sustainable payments, no guarantee of work and no appeal for injustice. Lately, of course, there is an association which looks after their interests to a great extent.

However, there are some character artistes who make a permanent impression on the audience with their acting style. Their names become unforgettable and they guarantee “Paisa Vasool” performance. Some such artistes were Omprakash, Mirajkar, Nazir kashmiri aka “Ramukaka”, Nazir Hussain, Badri prashad, Nana Palshikar Leela Mishra etc etc. One such artiste was KANHAIYALAL CHATURVEDI. He entered the cinema world to become a Lyricist and story/dialogue writer, but ended up as an actor. No one writes on character artistes, everyone writes on Hero or aHeroines only. Our today’s Hero is Kanhaiyalal.

Pandit Kanhaiyalal Chaturvedi was born on 15-12-1910 in Banares. His father was Bhairodutt and mother was Parvati Devi. He studied only upto 4th standard. When he was 15 year old he was given the family Kirana shop to manage, but due to his hobby of seeing dramas, the shop had to be closed. Then he was tried on a Chakki. Here also he failed. Seeing his inclination, his father started his own Drama company called ‘ Sanatan Dharm Natak Samaj’. Kanhaiya started doing odd jobs in that company.

After father’s death, his elder brother Sankata prasad went to Bombay and joined Sagar Film co. Kanhaiya also went to Bombay . There he wrote a drama ” 15 August ke baad” and wanted to stage it, but it was censored too much and he failed in this too.

He left for Calcutta and joined the drama company of Agha Hashr. He got a good role of ‘Tabalchi’ in it. But he left this too and went to Allahabad joining a Ramleela group where he presented one drama also. Once Chimanlal Desai of Sagar had come there. He saw Kanhaiya and called him to Bombay. He only wanted to write songs, stories and dialogues, but fate made him an actor only.

He first did an extra role in the film ” Sagar ka Sher”. He was noticed by Motilal and he took him to Mehboob. He was given a role in the film “Gramophone Singer-38″. His next big role was in the film ‘ Sadhana”-39, it was followed by Bhole Bhale-39, Ek hi Raasta-39 and Service limited-39.

In 1940, his life’s most important role of ‘Sukhilala’ was done by him in the film Aurat-1940. After 17 years, Mehboob chose only him to do the same role in the remake “Mother India-1957”.

Kanhaiyalal was known to be a “Scene Eater” by other stars. Even Dilip Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Rajesh khanna, Ashok kumar etc appreciated his dialogue delivery and acting. In his private life, Kanhaiayalal was very down to earth. Though he could easily afford it, he never bought a car and always travelled in Bus, Train or a Taxi.

He worked in 141 films and surprisingly 7 songs were picturised on him,on screen.Besides acting, Kanhaiyalal wrote dialogues, stories and songs in films. He wrote 57 songs in 8 films namely, Sadhana-39, Comrades-39, Bhole Bhale-39, Sanskar-40, Civil Marriage-40, Radhika-41, Nirdosh-41 and Kasauti-41.

As an actor his last film was Ek aur Sangram-1982. His dedication for work was always appreciated. During the shooting of the film Aurat-40, the set fell on him and he was injured, but he told Mehboob,-‘ Don’t stop the shooting. Take the shots.’ After the shooting, he was given treatment.

Some of his films were Behen, Radhika, Lal haveli, Ganga jamuna, Sautela bhai, Grihasthi, Upkar, Ram aur Shyam, Teen bahuraniyan, Jeevan mrityu, Hum panch etc etc.

He gave his last film shot for film Hathkadi-82. Kanhaiyalal Chaturvedi died on 14-8-1982, when he was 72 years old. Kanhaiyalal worked in innumerable films. He died in Delhi, leaving behind his wife, two sons and four daughters, and hardly any property. Even the body of the celebrated artiste could not be brought to Bombay, his home.

(information drawn from Sagar Movietone by Biren Kothari, Beete kal ke sitare by Shriram Tamrakar, wiki, HFGK, muVyz and my notes, all with thanks.)

Today’s song is from the film Kanhaiya-1980. There was another film with the same title in 1959. Raj Kapoor and Nutan had acted in it.

Kanhaiya-80 was made by Sonnar Films, directed by Khalid Sami and it’s music was by the pair of Basu- Manohari. Basu Chakraborty (23-1-1928 to 27-7-2001) and Manohari Singh (8-3-1931 to 13-7-2010) composed 30 songs together in 7 films, namely- Sabse Bada Rupaiya-76, Yasmin-78, Bin Baap ka Beta-78, Kanhaiya-80, Jeena hai Pyar mein-83, Chatpati-83 and Bluffmaster !-2005.

The cast of the film was Naseeruddin Shah, Amjad khan, Asha Sachdev, Farida jalal, Master Raju, kanhaiyalal, Dev Kumar and many more. The story of the film was…

Sharda lives a wealthy lifestyle along with her widower dad, Thakur Ranvir Singh, in Bombay, India. She incurs her dad’s displeasure when she elopes and gets married to Jaichand Prakash, a poor man. She gets pregnant and Jaichand passes away, leaving her alone to raise their son Kanhaiyaa.

As soon as Kanhiayaa celebrates his 9th birthday, Sharda too passes away forcing Kanhaiya to find shelter at Bal Kalyan Anaathalay, run by a cruel manager named Makhanlal. After getting abused at the orphanage Kanhaiyaa escapes to Mumbai and lands in the net of Madhav Singh and Rahim, touts who teach male orphans to become thieves and robbers.

Destiny brings Kanhaiya to his estranged maternal grandfather who recognises him and takes him home. However, fate has other plans in store for him as he gets abducted once again by Madhav Singh’s men. Finally the chief of the Anathalaya helps them to locate and free kanhaiya and the culprits are arrested by the police. The Grandfather gets his Grandson safely.

Kanhaiyalal had acted in this film. This was one of his last few films, before he departed from this world. The film Kanhaiya-80 makes its Debut on the Blog.

Remembering Kishore Kumar on his 91st Birth Anniversary :

teri gali main aata sanam
naghma wafa ka gaata sanam
tujhse suna na jaata sanam
phir aa jidhar aaya hoon magar
ye kehne main deewaana
khatm bas aaj ye wehshat hogi
aaj rusva teri galiyon mein muhabbat hogi
mere mehboob

Abhas Kumar Ganguly (born 4 August 1929 – 13 October 1987), became the famed Kishore Kumar of Hindi film world. Being a Bengali but born and brought up in hindi heartland and settling down to work in Bombay film industry to follow the footsteps of big brother, must have helped form a cosmopolitan outlook in his attitudes. I have just read the Wikipedia page on Kishore Kumar and found it enlightening in many ways. Some of the eccentric behavior described in the page, are funny and not so funny at the same time.

Reading the detailed page has confirmed many of my conceptions about Kishore Kumar. Chief among them being the fact that S. D. Burman, had a great role to play in shaping him as a super playback singer. For a long time through 50’s and 60’s it is apparent that he only ever gave playback for Dev Anand. He was making films, acting as hero and character roles, singing for himself, composing songs for his own films etc. etc. 50’s and 60’s were the most productive decades for Dev Anand, but he was singing songs on screen with the total range of singers, Rafi, Kishore, Hemant Kumar, Talat Mehmood and even Mukesh. If Manna De also sang for Dev Anand during this time, I don’t know off hand. Even in Navketan films, the songs were divided among Rafi and Kishore, a few were by Hemant Kumar too early on. So it is understandable that 70’s and early 80’s is Kishore Kumar’s most productive period, after he was convinced by RDB to seriously concentrate on playback singing. Even than he was reportedly choosy about the actors for whom he sang.

Kishore Kumar also has a distinction of being the singing star and having enjoyed playback by Rafi Sahab. Only other singer to have this distinction is G. M. Durrani.

Some of the sad melancholy songs of Kishore Kumar are my favourite sad songs which I have listed in another post. The above quoted song “mere Mehboobqayamathogi” is one such song, the lyrics of which were written in a book of songs I used to keep in my childhood.

I had short listed the solo from “Sanam Teri Qasam” – Sheeshe ke gharon mein dekho to patthar dil wale baste hain”, but I found that song a bit depressing. So I shifted to another happy sounding song.

I am presenting this peppy, feel good song from the film “Bezubaan”(1982). It’s a party song, where Shashi Kapoor is singing in praise of his wife Reena Roy and counting his blessings. It is a solo song by Kishore Kumar, witten by Ravindra Rawal and composers are Raam-Laxman. The entire cast of the film is present in this gathering. The party is moving from indoors to outdoors and indoors again while Shashi Kapoor is so shaky and imbalanced with happiness keeps falling down and dropping things 🙂 🙂 . The details of the film are available on imdb site. The songs were quite good in this film especially the song “harek jeewan hai ek kahaani par ye sachchayi sab ne na jaani”, story- telling solo by Lata Mangeshkar.

Lyrics(As per audio)

Part I (Happy version)

Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin
Ye mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Sooraj chaand taare gagan ke
Jaise raushni dene chamke
Yoon hi teri bindiya ke dam se
Meri duniya din raat damke
Sooraj chaand taare gagan ke
Jaise roshni dene chamke
Yunhi teri bindiya ke dam se
Meri duniya din raat damke
Tere hansne se achcha mahurat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Main bhi aaj yeh maanta hoon
Kal tak jo yeh duniyaa thhi kehti
Jag mein har safal aadmi ke
Peechhe ek aurat hai rehti
Main bhi aaj yeh maanta hoon
Kal tak jo yeh duniyaa thhi kehti
Jag mein har safal aadmi ke
Peechhe ek aurat hai rehti
Munh chhupaane ki koyi zaroorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Kitna mujhe tujhpe yaqeen hai
Hamdam tujhe kehna hai mushkil
Itna tujhe kehta hoon bas main
Tujh bin zinda rehna hai mushkil
Kitna mujhe tujh pe yaqeen hai
Hamdam tujhe kehna hai mushkil
Itna tujhe kehta hoon bas main
Tujh bin zinda rehna hai mushkil
Nainon mein bin tere koyi moorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin
Ye mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 7

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

A birthday greeting that is now a week ago (plus one more day 😉 ). Many many happy and healthy returns Naseer ji – may we all be blessed with a few more decades of accomplished performances by yourself.

Memories do always seem to connect as if yesterday. Maybe it is the ‘me’ inside me that is never changing in this ever changing world, and so every memory, every remembrance of every person, place, happening, event, vision, hearing a song on the radio, and yes, seeing films in black and white on the TV screens in neighbor’s homes – everything seems to have happened just yesterday.

The film was ‘Manthan’ (1976). And the days were when we would just sit and watch a film on TV for no reason – just that it was a Saturday / Sunday and Doordarshan would be airing a feature. Much later in life I would surprised to find out that some of the films I had watched on TV were actually color films. But then, those black and white images in the memory are more prized and dear now, than the actual color visuals captured later in the day (yesterday, I mean – as I said, everything seems to have happened yesterday).

So, ‘Manthan’ it was. A film that was part of the earliest batch of New-Wave cinema in India. From the first viewing, the memory that I have is, that I do not remember anything about the film or its storyline, its characters, their names, performances etc. Everything that I know about this film is from later viewings. But there are two items that are stuck in the storage from that viewing – one is a visual of a man driving a jeep, a woman trying to follow him on foot, and the song playing – “Mero Gaam Kaathha Paarey”. And the second is a funny mention – a belligerent villager pronouncing the word ‘society’ as ‘sisoti’ (सीसोटी). That is the earliest data byte stored in memory about this exemplary and infinitely versatile performer – Naseeruddin Shah.

Beyond that of course, getting in later teens and going to college, it was trendy and fashionable to go see new wave films – and so a much crowded occupancy of memories related to his films. The list seems to go on and on – ‘Nishant’ (1975), ‘Bhumika’ (1977), ‘Godhuli’ (also 1977), ‘Junoon’ (1978), ‘Sparsh’ (1979), ‘Aakrosh’, ‘Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyon Aata Hai’, ‘Bhavni Bhavai’ (all three in 1980), then ‘Chakra’ and ‘Sazaay e Maut’ (what a solid psychological thriller this one is), both from 1981, ‘Bazaar’ (1982), then a ton of them in 1983 – ‘Katha’, ‘Mandi’, ‘Ardh Satya’ and the peerless cult classic ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’, then ‘Paar’, ‘Mohan Joshi Haazir Ho’ and ‘Khandhar’ in 1984, ‘Mirch Masala’ in 1985, and in 1986, ‘Musafir’, and ‘Genesis’ – the unforgettable film of primeval emotions and human relations, by Mrinal Sen.

On the way, his career merged into the commercial circuit, and, with some of the then current group of parallel cinema performers, he established himself as a performer at home both with ‘sisoti’ and “Oye Oye Aaaa. . . O Tirchhe Nainon Waali” (‘Tirchhi Topi Waale’, 1998). The ease with which he has straddled both the streams is really heartwarming. It simply goes to underline his openness and his versatility. Starting with ‘Hum Paanch’ in 1980, he entered into the mainstream commercial Hindi cinema and has made an enviable position for himself in the industry with creditable performances in films like ‘Umrao Jaan’ (1981), ‘Dil Aakhir Dil Hai’ (1982), ‘Masoom’ and ‘Woh Saat Din’, (1983), ‘Ghulami’ and ‘Trikaal’ (1985), ‘Karma’ (1986, in the esteemed company of Dilip Kumar), ‘Ijaazat’ (1987), the fabled ‘Pestonjee’ in 1988, along with ‘Hero Hiralal’ and ‘Maalamaal’. In the 1988 Merchant-Ivory production of the crime thriller ‘The Perfect Murder’, he plays the pivotal role of Inspector Ghote. Then on to ‘Tridev’ in 1989, ‘Police Public’ in 1990. . . and then there are many, too many to be listed here. A sampler of important ones –‘Vishwatma’ (1992), ‘Sir’ (1993), ‘Mohra’ (1994), ‘Himmat’ (1996), ‘Chinagate’ (1998), ‘Sarfarosh’ (1999), ‘Hey Ram’ – the role of Mahatma Gandhi (2000), ‘Monsoon Wedding’ (2001), ‘3 Deewaarein’ and ‘Main Hoon Na’ (2004), ‘Iqbal’ (2005), ‘Omkara’ and ‘Banaras’ along with ‘Yun Hota To Kya Hota’, his debut as a director in (2006), ‘Parzania’ (2007), ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’ in which he plays the role of a portrait on the wall, and ‘Mere Baap Pehle Aap’ in 2008. . . As I said, his notable performances are simply too numerous to be sampled.

Naseer was born in Barabanki (UP) on 20th July, 1949. His parents, Aley Mohammed Shah and Farrukh Sultan, are originally from Meerut. His school education happened at St. Anselm’s in Ajmer and St. Joseph’s College in Nainital. After doing his BA from Aligarh Muslim University, he joined the National School of Drama in Delhi. From there on, the rest is all fairly recent history. His work, on stage and on screen is the story of his life.

On the way, he has earned two National awards for the best actor – ‘Sparsh’ in 1979 and ‘Paar’ in 1984, and one National award for the best supporting actor in ’Iqbal’ (2006). He also has to his credit three Filmfare awards for Best Actor –  ‘Aakrosh’ (1981), ‘Chakra’ (1982) and ‘Masoom’ (1984). He also won the Volpi award for the best actor at the Venice Film Festival in the year 1984 for his performance in ‘Paar’. He has also been honored with the national awards of Padam Shri (1987) and Padam Bhushan (2003).

The song being presented today is a repeat category item with a slight difference. It is a medley of 6 songs, that have been strung together into a wonderful imitation performance by Naseer. There is a specific similarity in this set of songs. All are rendered by Rafi Sb, and all are Shammi Kapoor songs on screen. The audio segments edited together are all original renditions, with no effort to re-record or improvise.

The choice of Shammi Kapoor songs all – you may ask. Yes, the interesting background to this song does indeed involve Shammi Kapoor as an important figure in the story line, albeit in absentia.

The film is ‘Sitam’ from 1984. The film is produced by Vikram, and is directed by the husband wife team of Aruna Raje and Vikas Desai. The main cast of actors is Naseeruddin Shah, Smita Patil, Vikram. Asrani, Sulabha Deshpande, Seema Deo, Vikas Desai, Arun Sarnaik, Keith Stevenson amongst others.

Subhash Munkur (role played by Naseeruddin Shah) is a lively, jolly fellow who loves to live the life to its fullest. He is a middle income family person, working in a certain office. He is an avid football player and is the captain of the homegrown team in his company. He is also a very fervent fan of Shammi Kapoor, and imitates his acting and sings his songs. His wife, Meenakshi (role played by Smita Patil) is a home maker, and they have a small son to complete their small dream world.

One day, suddenly, this dream world is mortally shattered. Subhash passes away in a freak inadvertent accident on the football field. Meenakshi is devastated and crushed – she had a very loving relationship with her husband.

This song medley appears in the film a little while after the accident. Meenakshi is alone at home and the memories of Subhash are all around her, and she is traumatized by them. She envisions him still in the home, and singing Shammi Kapoor songs as he used to, to woo her and also to irritate her. Whichever part of the home she goes to, there is a song and a vision attached with it, and she continues to see him singing, in the balcony, in the kitchen, in the bedroom, on the dining table – everyplace in the home. She is not able to hold her grief, and is sobbing and in tears all the time, while this ‘dream of wide open eyes’ is being enacted around her.

So here is a treat of Shammi Kapoor songs, performed quite well by Naseeruddin Shah. Of course the original personality is the big difference, but still, it is a creditable imitation. Once again, this medley is not listed in the EP of the film or in the Geet Kosh and is available only on the film track.

The rest of the story is an interesting premise. Inder (role played by Vikram), the person who inadvertently caused the accident on the football field, is till then unknown to Meenakshi. He locates her and tries to become friendly with her and her son. He is guilt ridden and some how wants to make some amends, he knows not how. But then Meenakshi discovers the truth behind his visits. She further accuses him, berates him and in anger asks him to leave her home. Inder goes back and attempts to commit suicide by slashing his wrists. He is taken to the hospital and saved, but now the guilt factor in his mind has multiplied manifold. He becomes suicidal and a mental patient, and is shifted to the mental ward. The doctors understand his situation that the only remedy for him is to get forgiveness from Meenakshi. And of course, Meenakshi, in her own shattered state of mind, is in no condition or frame of mind to forgive Inder.

This is actually where the film starts. The earlier events are presented as a flashback, and the rest of the film is about how Meenakshi comes to terms with her grief, and ends up forgiving Inder. The film is a very interesting psychological narrative.

Enjoy this replay of six of the famous songs of Shammi Kapoor. I have listened to and viewed this clip so many times now, and every time, it seems to end just too soon. One does not realize that more than three minutes have passed. And the mind actually waits for yet one more song segment.

And the added bonus is the improvised performance by Naseeruddin Shah. Great performer, great actor – I am sure you will agree.

 

Song – Kisi Na Kisi Se Kabhi Na Kabhi (medley)  (Sitam) (1984) Singers – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – [multiple], MD – [multiple]

Lyrics

kisi na kisi se
kabhi na kabhi
kahin na kahin dil lagaana padega. . .

tum ne mujhe
dekha
ho kar
meharbaan
ruk gayi ye zameen
tham gaya aasmaan
jaan e mann
jaan e jaan
tum ne mujhe
dekha. . .

badan pe sitaare lapete huye
o jaan e tamanaa kidhar ja rahi ho
zara paas aao
to chain aa jaaye
zara paas aao
to chain aa jaaye
badan pe sitaare lapete huye
o jaan e tamanaa kidhar ja rahi ho
zara paas aao
to chain aa jaaye
zara paas aao
to chain aa jaaye. . .

kya haseen mod par aa gayi zindgani
ke haqeeqat na ban jaaye meri kahaani
jab aahen bhare ye thandi pawan
seene mein sulag uth’ti hai agan
tujhe dekh ke kehta hai mera mann
kahin aaj kisi se mohabbat na ho jaaye. . .

dil ke jharokhe mein tujh ko bitha kar
yaadon ko teri main dulhan bana kar
rakhunga main dil ke paas
mat ho meri jaan udaas
dil ke jharokhe mein tujh ko bitha kar
yaadon ko teri main dulhan bana kar
rakhunga main dil ke paas
mat ho meri jaan udaas. . .

tum ne kisi ki jaan ko
jaate huye dekha hai
wo dekho mujh se rooth kar
meri jaan ja rahi hai
wo dekho mujh se rooth kar
meri jaan ja rahi hai
tum ne kisi ki jaan ko
jaate huye dekha hai
wo dekho mujh se rooth kar. . .

जान ए मन
जान ए जान
तुम ने मुझे
देखा॰ ॰ ॰

बदन पे सितारे लपेटे हुये
ओ जान ए तमन्ना किधर जा रही हो
ज़रा पास आओ
तो चैन आ जाये
ज़रा पास आओ
तो चैन आ जाये
बदन पे सितारे लपेटे हुये
ओ जान ए तमन्ना किधर जा रही हो
ज़रा पास आओ
तो चैन आ जाये
ज़रा पास आओ
तो चैन आ जाये॰ ॰ ॰

क्या हसीन मोड़ पर आ गई ज़िंदगानी
के हक़ीक़त ना बन जाये मेरी कहानी
जब आहें भरे ये ठंडी पवन
सीने में सुलग उठती है अगन
तुझे देख के कहता है मेरा मन
कहीं आज किसी से मोहब्बत ना हो जाये॰ ॰ ॰

दिल के झरोखे में तुझको बिठा कर
यादों को तेरी मैं दुल्हन बना कर
रखूँगा मैं दिल के पास
मत हो मेरी जां उदास
दिल के झरोखे में तुझको बिठा कर
यादों को तेरी मैं दुल्हन बना कर
रखूँगा मैं दिल के पास
मत हो मेरी जां उदास॰ ॰ ॰

तुमने किसी की जां को
जाते हुये देखा है
वो देखो मुझसे रूठ कर
मेरी जान जा रही है
वो देखो मुझसे रूठ कर
मेरी जान जा रही है
तुमने किसी की जां को
जाते हुये देखा है
वो देखो मुझसे रूठ कर॰ ॰ ॰

Hullo to Atuldom

2nd November is the birthdate of Anu Malik, son of famous yesteryear music director Sardar Malik. Sardar Malik who is one among the forgotten stars of yesteryears and is not counted among the top five, but his works are still remembered. How can one forget “main gareebon ka dil hoon watan ki zuban” or “saranga teri yaad mein” or the Talat Mehmood classic “ae gham-e-dil kya karoon”; every one of them dipped in pure emotion and melody.

Hullo all Atulwaasis

I want to thank a few people who made me what I am. And the few means a small number of 25 or so teachers. Today (5 september 2017) is TEACHER’s Day.

During school days, we used to eagerly wait for this day. Those were the days when we didn’t have regular pocket money and we had to put an application to our parents for anything from Re. 1 to Rs. 5 (depending on what the class organizing committee would have set as the minimum individual contribution.)

It is that time of year.

Another year comes along, another 31st of July comes along – and once again, we remember, and pay tribute, to the one and only Rafisaab on this date.

It is with mixed emotions that I write this post.

No, it’s not quite what you’re thinking. Usually “mixed emotions” involve an element of happiness, tempered with sadness. Like parents sending their son or daughter abroad for higher studies. On one hand, they’re happy for their child’s future, on the other there’s an element of sadness that they will be separated by a considerable amount of distance and time.

“Sunayna” (1979) was a Rajshree Productions movie. It was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Hiren Nag. The story of the movie was inspired from Charlie Chaplin’s “City lights” (1931). I must say that I quite loved watching the movie in a then newly built mini sized movie hall in Ranchi in 1979. One of the lasting impressions of this movie in my mind include the extremely hummable title song viz. Sunayna sunayna..aaj in nazaaron ko tum dekho aur main trumhe dekhte huye dekhoon. The other lasting impression was Jagdeep playing a fellow jailbird of Naseeruddin Shah who tries to help Naseeruddin Shah escape out of jail. Instead of Naseeruddin Shah, Jagdeep finds himself out of the jail. And from then onwards Jagdeep tries very hard to go back inside the jail, but to no avail. 🙂

Duniyaa jise kehati hai jaadoo ka khilonaa hai
Mil jaaye to mitti hai kho jaaye to sonaa hai

This couplet of a ghazal written by Nida Fazli, the modernist Urdu poet and writer, made him famous among mushaira goers. Later this full ghazal was sung by Jagjit Singh and Chitra Singh sometime in late 70s bringing Nida Fazli in the limelight in a wider canvass including Hindi film industry.
