Hullo Atuldom

This is something which I have always felt. I read the title or heading of a song posted on the blog and immediately I recall another song that has similar thoughts, actions or beginning words in the lyrics. I had the same experience a few days back.

Let me explain. Last time the writing bug bit me, and I was writing this post, I had mentioned Farah Khan’s aunts – Honey and Daisy Irani in the post. As a next step I just looked up if any of their birth dates were in the next few days. I went a little further and just checked out which were the debut movies of the two super-cute sisters and found various sites giving names of different movies.

This Post by our in-house encyclopedia gives a brief biography of the two sisters. I also read Shri. Nayan Yagnik’s comments to the post, where he has mentioned that Honey Irani was youngest among the siblings and that ‘Didi’ or ‘Zameen ke Taare’ could be the debut of Honey. One thing definitely came out of all this research- I recollected a song from the ’80s which I used to hum and was full of ‘Anokhe Bol’.

The 1980s song that I am talking featured the Oh So Gorgeous!! Parveen Babi, Shatrughan Sinha, and Master Vishal. The song was shot in Byculla Zoo of Bombay which was called Victoria Gardens in those days. (This Zoo was renamed as Veermata Jijabai Bhonsale Udyan sometime after 1985 and Bombay became Mumbai. I am sure the older followers of this blog will tell if I am right.)

I am able to locate only a audio link of the song, but having seen it a number of times in Chitrahaar and other such television programmes, I can say that this song is meant to amuse a child who is upset that his family is no more.

Shatrughan Sinha, who plays a cop, is out to solve a triple murder, the child is the only one who escapes. Parveen Babi is the cop’s friend and she helps the cop become friendly with the glum child. Vinod Mehra, Bindiya Goswami (in guest appearances) and Ashok Kumar are the parents and grandfather of the boy who have been killed, Nirupa Roy played the grandma. Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Amjad Khan, Narendranath, Zarina Wahab, Kalpana Iyer, Imtiaz Khan, Satyen Kappu and Amjad Khan were the rest of the cast. The song I am bringing on-board here is from “Chor Police” (1983) which was the directorial debut of Amjad Khan and produced by his wife Shehla Khan and Vinay Kumar Sinha (who was Amjad Khan’s secretary too). It had RD Burman’s music and songs were written by Nida Fazli. Suresh Wadkar, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar, Vinod Sehgal and Vanita Mishra were the playback singers used.

With this post we remember the heroine of this film, Parveen Babi who died on 20th January in 2005. She died a loner and her body was discovered by the police two days later when her neighbours saw uncollected groceries, milk and newspapers outside her door. She was only 50.

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.

Today, February 8th is the 5th Remembrance Day of the poet and lyricist, Nida Fazli (12/10/1938 – 08/02/2016) who left for the heavenly abode on this date 5 years back. 80 years ago, Ghazal singer, Jagjit Singh (08/02/1841 – 10/10/2011) was born on this date. More than a co-incidental connection between the two, they had a special connection through their collaborations. Nida Fazli was the master of expressing the romance, realities and the philosophy of life by way of ghazals and nazms while Jagjit Singh added soul to Nida Fazli’s words through his emotive voice.

There was another co-incidence about Nida Fazli and Jagjit Singh. Both came to Mumbai around the same time, 1964 and 1965 respectively, for pursuing their career. It was Jagjit Singh’s first LP album with his wife, Chitra Singh titled ‘Unforgettable’ (1976) which made him popular as a ghazal singer. Almost at the same point of time, Nida Fazli had also become one of the most sought-after poets in mushairas all over India.

Both Jagjit Singh and Nida Fazli used very simplistic approach in making their ghazals popular among the masses. Jagjit Singh rendered ghazals in his emotive voice with simple music using only 3-4 musical instruments. He mostly avoided the use of semi-classical genre such as thumri and dadra as was the convention at that time. Nida Fazli, by and large, avoided the use of Persianised Urdu words in his ghazal. He used the mix of simple words from Hindi and Urdu to make them understandable to the masses. He moved away from the convention of ghazal writing as an expression of the unrequited love and the piognant mood associated with such love. Instead, he expressed through his poems the human relationships, socio-economic and political situations as also on realities of life. His poem depicted the humanist approach.

I have selected a few of couplets from his ghazals, some of which have been sung by Jagjit Singh, as examples of his non-conventional way of putting his thoughts in simple words with deep meanings:

uss ke dushman hain bahut aadmī achchha hoga
wo bhi meri hi tarah shahar mein tanha hoga

safar mein dhoop to hogi jo chal sako to chalo
sabhi hain bheed mein tum bhi nikal sako to chalo

[Note: This entire ghazal was recited by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi during a Rajya Sabha debate on March 8, 2016 in the context of Government’s difficulties for the smooth passage of bills in Rajya Sabha]

dhoop mein niklo ghataaon mein nahaa kar dekho
zindagi kyaa hai kitaabon ko hataa kar dekho

duniya jise kahte hain jaadoo kaa khilauna hai
mil jaaye to mittī hai kho jaaye to sona hai

hukoomaton ko badalne to kuchh muhaal nahin
hukoomaten jo badalta hai wo samaaj bhī ho

Muhaal= difficult

kabhi kabhi youn bhi ham ne apne jee ko bahlaaya hai
jin baaton ko ḳhud nahin samjhe auron ko samjhaaya hai

ghar se masjid hai bahut dur chalo youn kar le
kisi rote huye bachche ko hansaaya jaaye

hoshwaalon ko khabar kya bekhudi kya cheez hai
ishq keejiye phir samjhiye zindagi kya cheez hai

Both Nida Fazli and Jagjit Singh got associated with Hindi film industry almost at the same time. Nida Fazli wrote his first lyrics for ‘Satranj Ke Mohre’ (1974). Jagjit Singh rendered his first full-pledge song as a playback singer in Hindi film, ‘Aavishkaar’ (1973) with his wife Chitra Singh.

Despite both Nida Fazli and Jagjit Singh being in Mumbai since 1965 and both having the inter-related careers, it took almost 25 years for both of them to collaborate for the first time when Nida Fazli wrote the lyrics for the film ‘Billoo Baadshah’ (1989) for which Jagjit Singh was the music director and also the playback singer for one song. It took another four years when their first non-film album, ‘Insight’ was released in 1993. for which all the songs were written by Nida Fazli. Thereafter their collaborations continued until Jagjit Singh’s death kept them apart.

Nida Fazli entered the Hindi film industry as a lyricist at a time when the quality of song writing had the initial sign of deterioration. In the post-1980’s scenarios, his filmy songs stand apart from most of the songs written during that period. And when he joined with Jagjit Singh, their collaborative as well as individual efforts took us back to the golden period of Hindi film music for few moments.

On the occasion of the 5th Rememberance Day of Nida Fazli and 80th birth anniversary of Jagjit Singh, I have selected one of those Hindi film songs where Jagjit Singh has sung the song written by Nida Fazli. The song is ‘meri aankhon ne chuna hai tujhko duniya dekh kar’ from ‘Tarkieb’ (2000) with Alka Yagnik joining Jagjit Singh in rendition. The song was set to music by Aadesh Srivastav.

‘Tarkieb’ (2000) failed miserably at the box office and faded into oblivion. But the song under discussion has ensured that the name of the film is not forgotten. Such is the power of Jagjit Singh-Nida Fazli combination.

‘Vadh’ (2002) seems to have become an obscure film by now. Even though the film belongs to 21st century when the marketing through mass media has been the order of the day to promote the film, I do not recall having seen any such marketing blitzes for this film.

On-line searches revealed that it was a low budget film belonging to the genre of ‘suspense murder mystery’. A box office report suggests that the film was a ‘disaster’ as it earned about 50 per cent of the cost of production of the film. I guess, the absence of a well-conceived marketing of the film may have resulted in the prospective film audience not well-informed about the film. Otherwise, why should a film with Nana Patekar should get such a lukewarm reception at the box office? Probably, the low budget did not allow the makers of the film to indulge in high marketing blitzes.

‘Vadh’ (2002) was a maiden venture of Dilip Dhanwani who was in the film distribution business based in Mumbai. The star cast consisted of Nana Patekar, Anupama Verma, Puru Rajkumar, Meghna Kothari, Nakul Vaid, Sambhawana Seth, Arun Bakshi, Raju Mewani, Sweta Menon etc. The film was directed by N.S.R – the abbreviation for Nana Patekar, Rajesh Singh and Raj Bharath, respectively. Raj Bharath was entrusted with directing the film. However, due to alleged interferences by Nana Patekar, he left the film after which the Rajesh Singh was entrusted with the film’s direction. He also left the film on the same ground. Probably, producer thought it better to entrust the direction to Nana Patekar if he wants his film to be completed without any further delay.

The credit title of the film mentions that ‘it is a film by Nana Patekar for Dilip Dhanwani’. This shows as to how much Nana Patekar was involved in making of this film. This alone made me interested in watching the film, the DVD of which was available on one of the video sharing platforms. I watched this film in a single sitting as I found the film engrossing. The build-up of suspense till the last was superb. I could not guess as to who could be the murderer of three victims in the film which was attributed to a serial psychopath killer.

The gist of the story of the film is as under:

Dr, Arjun Singh (Nana Patekar) is a Psychiatrist who is attached to a mental hospital. He has a late marriage with Jyoti Singh (Anupama Verma) who is much younger than him. Dr. Arjun is very protective about his pregnant wife and loves her. His younger brother Vijay (Nakul Vaid) is a police inspector attached to Crime Branch who is in love with Meghna Kothari, the daughter of the Police Commissioner (Arun Bakshi).

In the mental hospital, there is a serial psychopath killer who has been kept in solitary confinement due to his violent behaviour. One day, the serial killer runs away from the hospital by breaking open the grilled door of his room. In this process, he kills three guards of the mental hospital by slicing the throats with ‘X’ slicing marks on the faces of the victims. This is his trade-mark killings. The police forces are looking out for the serial killer as this has created a panic among the residence.

Aryan (Puru Rajkumar) is a childhood friend of Dr. Arjun who is rich and a charming playboy. He spends much of his time in revelry and visits bars and clubs. He prefers casual relations with his girl-friends including the married ones and has no intention of marrying any of them. Dr. Arjun’s wife, Jyoti is also involved with extra marital relation with Aryan.

Soon after the running away of serial killer, one of the girl friends of Aryan is found murdered in her house. While the Crime Branch and Dr. Arjun think that the murder is a handywork of the serial killer with his trade-mark style of killing, Inspector Vijay has a doubt on Aryan as his visiting card is found in his murdered girl-friend’s house. After few days, another girl-friend of Aryan is found murdered in the same style which come to the light when Aryan visits her house. The presence of Aryan in the house makes Vijay confident that it is Aryan who has killed his girl friends in the same style as that of the serial killer so as to wood-wink the police in thinking that it is the work of the serial killer. Inspector Vijay arrests Aryan but due to lack of evidence against him, Aryan gets bail.

In the meanwhile, both Dr Arjun and his wife Jyoti are under threat from the serial killer. as they find ‘X’ mark in blood has been put on faces in their photo-frame. As a precautionary measure, Police Commissioner shifts them to a more secured place with a Commando attached to their new residence. Inspector Vijay ensures that he is present in the house when his brother, Dr. Arjun is on hospital duties.

Despite the security, one day, Jyoti finds that their personal Commando has been murdered in the same fashion as those killed by the serial killer. She gets the panic attack thinking that she and her husband would be the next target of the serial killers. A police team headed by the Police Commissioner visit to scene of the crime. To his horror, Inspector Vijay finds that his brother, Dr Arjun’s dead body is floating in a swimming pool with Jyoti murdered in her room with the same trade mark killing style as that of the serial killer.

The film ends with Police Commissioner taking a vow that he would not leave that mad serial killer and he would find him.

At the outset, the end of the film appears tame. This is because, I have not revealed the suspense part of the film just in case those who had not watched the film and are interested in doing so. The murder mystery has been solved as far as the film’s audience is concerned but for the police in the film, the case of the serial murders is yet to be solved.

The USP of the film is that the director has been successful in keeping the suspense in the film till the last. In fact, he has build-up the suspense as the film story progresses. However, this USP was not sufficient to make the film successful at the box office.

This film belongs to Nana Patekar from start to finish. There is no long and high-pitched dialogues for him as we are used to see him doing so in most of his films. He has a normal dialogue delivery and a restrained performance. Anupama Verma has done a conventional role of a house-wife which she has performed better than what she has been performing in her pop song videos. The suspense effects of the film have been well supported by the background music of Sanjay Chaudhary.

The weakness of the film is that it is too long for a suspense thriller. The film could have been easily condensed within the duration of say, 1 hour 45 minutes instead of 2 hours and 10 minutes to make it sleek for viewers. For example, there was not need to have two club songs of about 5 minutes durations just to support the playboy image of Puru Rajkumar. Such type of songs become distraction in a film which is trying to build-up the suspense. Probably, these two songs were included as a part of box office attractions. But the way these songs were conceived and presented, it would not have been a surprise if even front-benchers had taken a break by walking out of the theatre hall when these two songs were shown on the screen.

I also felt that there was no need for a romantic sub-plot of Inspector Vijay (Nakul Vaid) and his fiancée, Meghana Kothari. In fact, the role of Meghna Kothari is redundant in the film. On top of it, the pair have one song of about 5 minutes duration which appears to be forced upon the film.

And lastly, I missed the presence of N A Ansari type of a character in the film which would have added some aura around him, enhancing the suspense to the murder mystery.

‘Vadh’ (2002) has 6 songs, a high number for a suspense thriller. Except one, none of the song has pleased my ears. I am presenting the only song out of six which I liked and the song is ‘bahut khubsoorat hai aankhen tumhaari’ rendered by Jagjit Singh. The song is written by Nida Fazli which is set to music by Vishal-Shekhar. The song is picturised on Nana Patekar and Anupama Verma.

With this song, ‘Vadh’ (2002) makes its debut in the Blog.

Hullo Atuldom

This post sees the 20th November 1981 released “Gehra Zakhm” (as written in the titles of the movie) making its debut on the blog.
It is possible that the success of “Dada” (1979) prompted the casting of Amjad Khan in a pivotal role in this, since in that period he was known more for his negative characters. Vinod Mehra was the hero -just as in “Dada”. Ranjeeta Kaur, Kadar Khan, Sheetal, Jagdeep, Satyen kappu, Om Shivpuri etc formed the rest of the cast. Master Mayur played the young Vinod Mehra and Master Titoo played Amjad Khan’s childhood. Master Ravi plays the child who is rescued by Amjad Khan from Kadar Khan’s goonda and restored to his mother with some heavy duty dialogues to the effect that “maa se badhkar koi cheez nahi”. Jagdeep is Vinod Mehra’s (Vijay) friend who keeps urging the educated unemployed Vijay to live honestly and stop coming up with get-rich schemes.

Just before I started writing this post I had a look at the movie until the point of this song. It has Kishore Kumar and Sapan Chakraborty singing for Vijay and Jimmy (Jagdeep) as they go about on a cycle along the streets of Bombay by night. They are hoping that their fortunes change and they are able to enjoy the luxuries of life. Leena Das is the dancer in the last stanza.

This movie had two lyricists- Vithalbhai Patel and Nida Fazli- penning five songs that were set to tune by Rahul Dev Burman. Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Bhupinder, Anand Kumar (have seen his name against a few songs, but no info on him), Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar and Udit Narayan were the other singers in the movie.

I chanced upon this song when I googled for songs of Kishore Kumar which were not by regular lyricists meaning Anand Bakshi, Rajinder Krishan, Majrooh etc. Not that I don’t like their work, it is just that we feel that KK has not sung any other writer’s work. I also have been trying to present songs which KK has sung for actors other that Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh.

As we all know one of Vinod Mehra’s earliest songs “geet gata hoon main” had Kishore Kumar giving playback. That had the distinction of being composed by Shankar Jaikishan and written by Dev Kohli and stood at number 18 in that year’s Binaca Geetmala.

To start of with he was a reluctant actor. His debut was as playback for Dev Anand. He had a solo and his first ever duet with Lata Mangeshkar in that movie after which Lata – Kishore duets have been a norm for all leading pairs. And we have 206 of those duets on our blog. We have many duets of Kishore Kumar on the blog where he has sung with Mukesh, Mohd Rafi, R D Burman, S Balbir, Amit Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor and Shailendra Singh. Today we have a song with a new partner.

The first decade saw him singing one or two songs per movie; the maximum 7 songs he sang was for “Jaalsaaz” in 1959 and 8 songs for “Suhana Geet” also in 1959. But people say that his best period was post “Aradhana” in 1969 but we cannot close our eyes to “Jewel Thief”, “Guide”, “Half Ticket”, “Manmauji”, “Jhumroo”, “Rangoli” and all the other movies for which he has lent his voice.

Yes, post 1969 he has been used for actors as varied as Sunil Dutt, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, even Pran and his own brother Ashok Kumar. Kishore Kumar’s voice has been used successfully for all heroes of the ’70s through the ’80s till death snatched him away from us 33 years ago.

Remembering this excellent actor, singer, producer, director, music director and artist on his anniversary.

Aadmi ki talaash
———————————–

abhi mara nahin zindaa hai aadmi shaayad
yahin kahin use dhoondho yahin kahin hogaa
badan ki andhi guphaa mein chhupa hua hogaa
badha ke haathh
har ek raushni ko gul kar do
hawaayen tez hain jhande lapet kar rakh do
jo ho sake to unn aankhon pe pattiyan kas do
na koyi paaon ki aahat
na saanson ki awaaz
daraa huaa hai woh
kuchh aur bhi na dar jaaye
badan ki andhhi guphaa se na kuchh kar jaaye
yahin kahin use dhoondho
wo aaj sadiyon baad
udaas udaas hai
khaamosh hai
akelaa hai
na jaane kab koyi pasli phadak utthe us ki
yahin kahin use dhoondho yahin kahin hogaa
barh anaho to use phir libaas pehnaa do
andheri aankhon mein sooraj ki aag dehkaa do
bahut badi hai yeh basti kahin bhi dafnaa do
abhi maraa nahin
zinda hai aadmi shaayad

Duniya jise kehte hainjaadu kaa Khilona hai
Mil jaaye to mitti hai kho jaaye to sona hai

Nida Fazli , full name Muqtida Hasan Nida Fazli (12 October 1938 to 8 February 2016) is referring to the mesmerising charm of all things worldly and the fickle mindedness of the self, which keeps hankering after the things not gained, which may or may not be within reach.

The name ‘Nida’ means “to call”. In easy urdu /hindi it would mean “pukaar”. I had considered this name for my daughter. But I was dissuaded from this name, due to the meaning being so ambiguous. Because a call could be happy and good as the “Azaan”, or it could also be a call for attention is bad times or when one is in difficulty or desperation i.e. pukaar.

Here a song from the 1981 film “Aahistaa aahistaa” as part of for ‘dheere dheere songs’ series, written by Nida Fazli. This is a melodious composition by Khayyam. I am including ‘aahistaa aahistaa” in this series as it essentially means the same as ‘dheere dheere”.

Three songs from this movie have been covered in the blog so far :-

Song Date posted
Kabhi kisi ko muqqammal jahaan nahin miltaa 31 july 2010
Maana teri nazar mein 9 July 2012
Jab koi khwaab chamakta hai haqeeqat ban ke 31 july 2020

Padmini Kolhapure and Kunal Kapoor are singing this song on screen. This was a complicated story, I think based on a novel, with Shammi Kapoor and Nanda being the older generation and host of other actors in the cast.

Here is a duet by Asha Bhonsle and Anwar, as a tribute to Poet Nida Fazli on his birth anniversary.

I would prefer to stop counting the numbers, and rather go by the impressions in the memory. Well, it sounds so unbelievable that Nitin Mukesh turns 70 today. It seems like just a little while ago that we heard him sing for the first time in ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970). It was actually an unlisted song, in English. A song of good wishes and greetings – “Wish Me Luck”.

Then in 1981, when the song “Zindagi Ki Na Toote Ladi” from the film ‘Kranti’ was doing the rounds of popularity, my first impression on hearing this voice was – how come, was this song recorded earlier? The voice sounds so close to the voice of Mukesh, his father. Well yes, the voice is distinct, if one is listening carefully. But it also has an unmistakable shade of Mukesh’s voice.

Nitin Mukesh was born this day in 1950. Although he made his singing debut in 1970, his songs are few and far between in that first decade of his career. His more active years were the 1980s and 1990s. And even so, one cannot count his career as being prolific.

Today’s song is from the 1981 film ‘Nakhuda’. It was a big banner film of its time, produced by Yash Chopra for Yash Raj Films. The film is directed by Dilip Naik. The star cast for the film is Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Swaroop Sampat, Raj Kiran, Madan Puri, Javed Khan, Vikas Anand, Sudhir Dalvi, Bharat Kapoor, Madhu Malhothra, Mac Mohan, Yunus Parvez, Asha Sachdev, Jagdish Raj, Mahaan, Murlidhar, Bandini, Nandini, Umesh, Murari, Chand, Raj Verma, Chandu, Pardesi, Amarnath, Rajesh, and Rauf Khan.

The film has 6 songs. One song is a composition by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and also sung by him. The remaining 5 songs are from the pen of Nida Fazli, and have been tuned to music by Khayyaam. One song of this film is already showcased on our blog. This is the second song of this film to make its appearance here today. Lyrics for this song have been sent in by our dear Avinash ji.

On screen, the song is picturized on Raj Kiran and Swaroop Sampat. As the words indicate, this is an ‘expectant parents’ song, with the characters expressing happiness and love for each other, with the knowledge that another member of the family is on way.

Wishing Nitin Mukesh, a very happy birthday, and also many many more years of good health and active singing. All the best wishes to him.

Blog Day :

3996 Post No. : 15092 Movie Count :

4142

Today 27th June 2019, is the eightieth birth anniversary of Rahul Dev Burman (27th June, 1939 – 4th Jan, 1994). We fondly remember him on this occasion and will be always thankful to him for giving us all those great nostalgic songs, great music and many everlasting gems.

As I was looking for a special song for this occasion and while going through his filmography, I decided to select a song penned by Nida Fazli. I thought they worked together in very few films so I was interested to introduce a new movie and I finally zeroed on this lesser known movie ‘Mangal Sutra’ (1981). I think even the song of today is a very lesser known and this might be because of this movie going unnoticed then. Even the filmography of RDB on ‘wiki’ does not have this movie in that list. (Since I could not prepare the details of RDB-Nida Fazli movies together I am deferring it for a post in the future).

‘Mangal Sutra’ was directed by B Vijay for Gaurav Films International, Madras. It was produced by Ravi Kumar. Mrs. Chandrika Shah and Mrs. Era Kalra were Associate Producers of this movie. It had Rekha, Anant Nag, Prema Narayan, Jagdeep, Madan Puri, and Om Shivpuri. The supporting cast included Keshto Mukherjee, Asit Sen, Rajendranath, BM Vyas, Chand Usmani, Jayshree T, Meena T, Guddi, Jezbel, Swaraj, NS Bedi, Shankar Singh, Vinod, Neeta, Sharma, Jailata, Baby Reema, Viju Khote and Madhu. Shashi Puri makes a guest appearance in the movie. And this movie introduced Master Vineet.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by MD Sundar. Dialogues were written by Snehlata Verma. Editing of this movie was done by P Bhakthavathsalam. Vijaykumar Raichura was the Associate Director of this movie. The movie was passed by Censor Board on 13.03.1981.

This movie had total five songs penned by Kavi Pradeep (one song) and Nida Fazli (four songs). Asha Bhonsle, Bhupinder Singh, Dilraj Kaur, Lata Mangeshkar, Meena and SP Balasubramaniam had given their voices to the songs in this movie. Music for this film was composed by RD Burman.

One movie by the same title was also made in 1947 (as per note in HFGK-Vol-VI), however no songs from this movie seem to be available as of now.

In the movie this song happens to be on the ‘suhaag raat’ of Anant Nag and Rekha. When I listened to this song for preparation of this post I remember to have listen it somewhere earlier but I had forgotten it. This song is nice duet and as mentioned above in the movie it is on the ‘milan ki raat’ where the newlywed couple sings this song. And for that matter I think this song is for all couples even if they are not ‘just newly wed’, they can enjoy it on anniversary or anniversaries or even on the ‘silver –jubilee’ of their marriage 🙂 . The song is sung by my favourite singers Asha Bhonsle and Bhupinder Singh.

It is unbelievable that twenty five years have passed since our beloved RD Burman has left us in 1994. He left us in January 1994. I was posted at Kota then. I got married in June (on his birth anniversary) and I remember the first Hindi movie me and wife watched together at Kota was ‘1942 – A Love Story’. . .

Once again thanking Pancham Da for the lovely, beautiful, exciting music and moments its music has given to us. Let us now enjoy today’s song. With this song the movie ‘Mangalsutra’ (1981) makes its debut on the blog.

Blog Day :

Hullo Atuldom

We are now into the 15000s. Atulji and his bandwagon have taken a fresh Guard (cricket language) as Sunny Gavaskar used to say when he began his stint as a commentator. He used to say that after every 50,100, 150, 200 etc. it is advisable for the batsman to take a fresh guard as it helps in restoring focus on the goal or job at hand. We at ASAD, never loose our focus, posting songs with regularity of at least one per day; explaining the name of the blog. It is another matter that ASAD is almost never one-song-a-day, it has been minimum 4-5 songs a day for some years and at times going to about 13 songs in a day.

Remember friends the world is one is the song which started our new series – series 15000s. We have a variety of songs that formed part of the celebration 15000- songs of the happy, melancholic, naughty, and party genre. We are expecting a few more posts that Sudhir ji (Atul ji’s trusted lieutenant) will add to our already existing khazaana. Till such time the blog moves on with one more birthday song.

Today a sweet looking, baby faced heroine turns a year older. And it is hard to believe she turns 71. So suddenly she goes into the category of stalwarts, senior actress etc. She has been acting since 1967 – almost fifty two years. She started her career in Bengali movies with ‘Balika Badhu’ (1967 release) as her debut movie. Subsequently she married Jayanta Mukherjee and that made her the bahu of the Hemant Kumar. I am talking of Moushumi Chatterjee of the brilliant smile that showed a crooked tooth which only added to her charm.

She has been the leading lady of all the heroes of Bollywood in her time from her debut hero Vinod Mehra to Raj Babbar of the next lot of actors. She has played Bhabhi to Mithun and wife to Anupam Kher too in latter part of her career. She last appeared in Piku as aunt to Deepika Padukone and sister in law of Amitabh Bachchan with whom she had romantically paired I the 70s in ‘Manzil’ and ‘Benaam’.

I talked about Moushumi pairing with all major actors of the 70s and 80s, there was one movie where she was paired opposite Farooque Shaikh. Yes, she has also done this unusual pairing. It was in 1987 released Mohan Kavia directed “Mahananda”. The movie was a remake of the Marathi movie of the same name which released in 1984 (I hope I am not wrong in this). The Marathi version was directed by Kay Gee, and had music by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. The cast has Vikram Gokhale, Mohan Agashe, Shashikala etc. The Hindi version has Dr.Shreeram Lagoo, Ashalata, Sulbha Deshpande, Asha Sharma etc. in addition to Moushumi and Farooque Shaikh.

The movie’s title card says it was based on Jaywant Dalvi’s novel of the same name. Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar, Manas Mukherjee and Ghanshyam Vaswani were the playback singers for songs penned by Nida Fazli, Yogesh, Kapil Kumar and Inderjeet Hasanpuri and Manas Mukherjee was the music composer. The movie was mostly shot in Konkan and Goa. Moushumi looked pretty in those typical Maharashtrian sarees. Farooque Shaikh plays an English professor. I think the movie touched upon the Devadasi system that was prevalent in many parts of Karnataka, Maharashtra and Goa. I have seen the Marathi version on Doordarshan a long time back don’t recollect having seen in Hindi.

I remember seeing her in an episode of the Doordarshan programme ‘Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan’ which used to be hosted by Tabassum where she showed how she could switch easily between laughing wildly to crying tearfully in an instant without the use of glycerin (the standard aid to induce tears in movies back then).

How can one forget her comedy scenes with Sanjeev Kumar in ‘Itni Si Baat’ and ‘Angoor’? Today’s song shows her in a different mood. It is a song with the unusual pairing of Farooque Shaikh with Moushumi. The female voice seems to be of Usha Mangeshkar and the male voice could either be Ghanshyam Vaswani or Manas Mukherjee (need help in recognising the voices). This song is written by Nida Fazli.

[Editor note:According to HFGK, the singers are Usha Mangeshkar and Bhupendra. But Peevesie’s mom, based on the credits, feels that the singer is Ghanshyam Vaswani or Manas Mukherji.]

Here is wishing our cute Moushumi Chatterjee a healthy and happy Birthday

ho basti hoya jangal sabka
ek fasaana hai
ye dard puraana hai
tez hawaaon ke jhonkon mein
deep jalaana hai
deep jalaana hai

yeh dard puraana hai
ho o mere tere naam naye hain
dard puraana hai
yeh dard puraana hai

नाम नए हैं
दर्द पुराना है
ये दर्द पुराना है
हो ओ मेरे तेरे नामे नए हैं
दर्द पुराना है
ये दर्द पुराना है
तेज़ हवाओं के झोंकों में
दीप जलाना है
दीप जलाना है
ये दर्द पुराना है
हो ओ मेरे तेरे नामे नए हैं
दर्द पुराना है
ये दर्द पुराना है

आँसू हर युग का अपराधी
हर आँगन का चोर
आँसू हर युग का अपराधी
हर आँगन का चोर
कोई ना थामे दामन इसका
घूमे चारों ओर
घूमे चारों ओर
हो ओ गूंगी है संसार कचहरी
अंधा थाना है
ये दर्द पुराना है
हो ओ मेरे तेरे नामे नए हैं
दर्द पुराना है
ये दर्द पुराना है

जो जी चाहे वो मिल जाये
ऐसा कब होता है
जो जी चाहे वो मिल जाये
ऐसा कब होता है
बिस्तर बिस्तर प्यार बिछाये
समझौता सोता है
समझौता सोता है
हो ओ बस्ती हो या जंगल सबका
एक फसाना है
ये दर्द पुराना है
तेज़ हवाओं के झोंकों में
दीप जलाना है
दीप जलाना है
ये दर्द पुराना है
हो ओ मेरे तेरे नामे नए हैं
दर्द पुराना है
ये दर्द पुराना है
