We are in the fag-end of the month of June of this year 2022. As I had mentioned earlier that this month is a special for many of us due to the many anniversaries falling in this month i.e., anniversaries of relatives, friends and as well as anniversaries of many artists too. Today we celebrate birth anniversary of our beloved music genius Rahul Dev Burman, and one post has already been posted on the blog remembering Pancham.

Today 27th June, 2022 is also the seventy-second birth anniversary of singer Nitin Mukesh (born on 27th June, 1950). We wish him a very happy birthday today and also wish him a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

On this occasion I am once again going back to the songs from the movie ‘Santosh’ (1989). There is one duet sung by Nitin Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle in this movie which is yet to be posted on the blog. This song is lying ready with us since long and I take this opportunity to present it today here on the blog.

‘Santosh’ was an East-n-West Movies presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan. Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. It has Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pichoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar, and others. Story of ‘Santosh’ is written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by VV Kamat (assisted by Ashok Naik).

This movie has seven songs written by Santosh Anand (six songs) and Manoj Kumar (one song). Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. I have earlier mentioned the details of the songs of this movie in my previous posts, so I am not going to repeat them again here.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is lip-synced by Manoj Kumar and Hema Malini. This song is a nice duet to watch and listen.

Let us enjoy this beautiful song now …

Bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon

Song – Bataao Tumhen Pyaar Kaise Karoon (Santosh) (1989) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Nitin Mukesh, Lyrics – Santosh Anand, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
bina bole hothon ka hilna hai kya
mujhe inka matlab to samjhaaiye
khayaalon mein phoolon ka khilna hai kya
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
mujhe ghut ke marne ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe ae …

bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin
main jaisa bhi hoon
haan
jaisa bhi hoon
saamne hoon khadaa aa
mujhe kuchh chhupaane ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin

ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
bina bole hothon ka hilna hai kya
mujhe inka matlab to samjhaaiye
khayaalon mein phoolon ka khilna hai kya
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
mujhe ghut ke marne ki aadat nahin

mujhe itni fursat mili hai kahaan
mujhe itni fursat mili hai kahaan
jo padhta tumhaare nayan ki ghazal
mujhe aaj lagta hai sach maan lo
ye chehra nahin hai gulaabi kamal 
ye dil kaise chori kiya jaayega
ye dil kaise chori kiya jaayega
mujhe dil churaane ki aadat nahin

aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

mujhe kuchh huaa hai pataa hai tumhe
badi nam hawaa hai pataa hai tumhe
badan jal rahaa hai ragon mein magar
lahu jam gaya hai pataa hai tumhe*
lo sar jhuk gaya hai tumhe kya khabar
lo sar jhuk gaya hai tumhe kya khabar
mujhe sar jhukaane ki aadat nahin
main jaisa bhi hoon
haan
jaisa bhi hoon
saamne hoon khadaa aa
mujhe kuchh chhupaane ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 10
———————————————————

73rd Republic Day of India

ek hai apni zameen
ek hai apna gagan
ek hai apna jahaan
ek hai apna watan
apne sabhi sukh ek hain
apne sabhi gham ek hain
aawaaz do
aawaaz do ham ek hain
ham ek hain

“What is it that I want? The same as you, the same as everyone else. I want to be physically safe and healthy, financially secure and personally happy. I want the same confidence in my abilities, in my environment and social acceptance. I have the same worries and aspirations for future. Same apprehensions if the children will turn out well and have good careers or not.”
This is me, in conversation with a dear friend and a long-time colleague. This conversation happened some 15-16 years ago. Actually, we were on the same page in the topic, she was not coming from any opposite direction at all. But she was the one clear on the causes of a problem, I was the one confused.
But things are a lot clearer to me now, exactly what I wanted to explain at that time is more obvious now.

apne sabhi sukh ek hain
apne sabhi gham ek hain

The causes of happiness for the common man are the same everywhere, whatever is the religion, caste, race, region, language, state or country they are allied to. The aspirations are same and the apprehension and causes of sadness are also the same essentially. This is the way a social environment develops, where people go and join hands with each other in times of happiness and sadness.

Today the country is celebrating 73rd Republic Day.

The constitution gives us the right to live with dignity. What is a person’s dignity? it is not just the pride in its citizenship, its values and its integrity. A person’s dignity is the self-belief that I have done nothing wrong and don’t mean any harm to anyone. And a feeling of security, that me, my life, my livelihood and my family is safe. A sense of belonging that makes us feel responsible for the safety and security of fellow citizens and has assurance of reciprocation. Also, that I deserve all that I command. Personally, socially and professionally.

As a citizen it is a right to demand and acquire good education, an adequate health facility, a great judicial system and better law enforcement agencies, plus a media which gives us information, that really mattered. Real information, on what has been done to give the above rights to the citizens.

With the slow and gradual increase of opportunities in education and personal growth, the inequalities have also increased. A success story in monetary terms and career, is just not enough. It is also important to have balanced and broad-minded success stories. Rationality and seeing an issue in a truly international perspective are what will make a successful person intellectually empowered.

At the ripe old age of 75, we should have been a mature people.
Do we see enough, do we care enough?
Do we bother to call out the misbehaviour, of miscreants we see on the streets? Are we bold to speak out against injustice?
Are we smart enough to sift through the crap fed to us day in and day out in the guise of news and entertainment?
Do we bother to check the authenticity of WhatsApp forwards before sharing with other people?
Do we even care that our ‘can’t care less’ attitude is destroying the centuries old social fabric of our society and stripping us of our identity as a people, the whole world, looked at with respect?

Munshi Premchand said “Communalism, whenever it raises its head, it comes within a cloak. Because it is ashamed of coming alone or walking alone. “
Yes, at the age of 75, we are a nation of most young people in the world. Being second largest population in the world, with an average age of 28 years, the figures of young people and children are just hugest in the world. If these young people are a part of work force and aspire for personal growth and are able to collectively individually, contribute to the nation building, what can be built and achieved is mind boggling.
But are we looking at what the young population of this country is aspiring to be?
What is the ambition of an average Indian youngster?
what are their hopes?
What are their priorities?

It is very important to channelise the energies and ambitions of youth towards personal and professional excellence. There is enough talent, brains and hands in this country to make it an economic force. But for that we have to rise above the politics of religion, caste, us and they, region etc.

There was a story of cats and a monkey, we used to hear and read as children. Lately I have not seen it repeated anywhere. So here is the story for refreshing the memory of readers:

Two cats are fighting for a roti. The monkey comes and tells them to stop fighting and make two equal pieces of the roti. The cats agree and make two parts. The monkey tells them the two parts are not equal, one is larger and the other is smaller. He advises the cat holding the larger piece, to break a small part and give it to him, so both the cats have equal portions. The result is again the same, the parts of the roti the cats have are still not equal. So, the other cat is asked to break a small piece and give it to the monkey, to establish the equality. So on and so forth the dispute continues, till the whole roti is finished, while the cats remain empty handed in the end.

Similar is the case of inequality in opportunities in our set up. In the name of equalising those opportunities, the opportunists among us are gobbling up the parts and parcel. Keeping the marginalised sections divided and fighting imaginary/perceptive fights with each other. It is not a true cut and dried, there are multiple layers to these differences, perceptions of not getting a fair share of the ‘roti’. The majority/minorities tussle is but one layer of it and the cloak which Munish Premchand referred to. The real divide here is still the have’s and have nots. Then there is a gender divide, which is inherent and keeps getting uglier.

Where does all this leave the common man, with its apprehensions and aspirations? With their same dukh and sukh, I spoke about in the first para.
“I have the same worries and aspirations for future. Same apprehensions if the children will turn out well and have good careers or not.”

It is true, that once I had children, all my self-interests and care less impulsiveness gave way to worries of the future. Not the least of which was the worry for their safety, physical, emotional and psychological. Major part of their time was spent outside the home, in school and in the creche. How the things that they imbibe from the social atmosphere will affect their character, their thought processes and their choices and priorities? This was a cause of worry for me.

Yes, these ills in society are stemming for this one vice, i. e. selfishness. A few days ago, I had a big discussion with my son, regarding the self-interest of sections of society, and the marginalised sections of the society, who are still outside a certain margin. This margin is not unbreachable. We can see it breached in some developed states in the country. In most parts of the country, the focus of the populace is on the personal growth, better life quality and the common interests of the common man.

My son, interestingly was coming from the other direction in the discussion. I have managed to make an inroad in the way, he looks at opportunities for himself and for others, his fellow countrymen, who have the talent, ability and deserve to take their rightful place in the progress and development of the country, I hope, because he has not come to me with any counter-arguments on the topic :-).

This is my quest to make a balanced, truly intellectual success story out of my children. There is no ‘ism’ in this thought process, just a bit of logic and unselfishness. The conscious unwillingness to get embroiled in a conflict of interests which is a matter of perception. This really is a distraction, which our youth do not need.

The problems and issues in our country are centric and specific to our country. These have to be looked at with a prism of our own, not look for solutions to it, from examples of other nations and other societies.

I will move on to the song post.

The song is an iconic song from the 1981 film “Kranti’. The punch line, or the concluding line of the song is

Mera chana hai apni marzi kaa
Marzi ka bhai marzi ka
Yeh dushman hai khudgarzi kaa
Khudgarzi ka khudgarzi kaa

“mera chana’ can be interpreted as ‘my passion’ or ‘my goal’, which really is to treat ‘khudgarzi’ i.e. selfishness as the enemy.

The song is iconic, as it has three legends of hindi film music singing it with the son of another legend. Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar are singing for Dilip Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha and Hema Malini, whereas Nitin Mukesh is giving playback to Manoj Kumar in the song, which is written by Santosh Anand and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

I used to hear the ‘sponsored programme’ of this film on Vividh bharati, I have seen the movie also long back. But I only recalled that Rafi Sahab is singing just one line for Dilip Kumar in this song. But now that I have seen and heard the song multiple times, the lines Rafi sahab is singing towards the end of the song, are definitely very significant and elevate the whole song to another level. The composition and orchestration have been kept very simple and basic by Laxmikant-pyarelal, so this is not a crowded song, with all these greats singing their parts, independently and together, with male and female chorus to add to the group.

This is the only song of these four singers. For Rafi sahab’s series, this must be the last such song remaining to be posted in the blog where Rafi sahab and Kishore Kumar are singing together, with or without Lata Mangeshkar and Nitin Mukesh. For Rafi-Lata duets, there are a few songs, at least one of them I plan to include in the series. So, this post takes care of Rafi sahab’s association with Kishore kumar, Nitin Mukesh and Santosh Anand.

Let us go to the song, and listen to the rendition which is a real ‘hair raising’ experience.

Hullo Atuldom

“Trimoorti” (1974) was produced and directed by Rajendra Bhatia. It had a cast of Parveen Babi, Kanchan Mattoo, Arpana Choudhary, Sanjay Khan, Rakesh Roshan, Asrani, Achala Sachdev, A.K. Hangal, Arvind Trivedi, Gulshan Bawra, Krishnakant, and I.S.Johar, Parveen Paul, Keshto Mukherjee, Sarita Joshi etc. Its music director was Rahul Dev Burman and Gulshan Bawra was the lyricist.

The blog has this song which was posted in 2017 on Parveen Babi’s anniversary.
I was reminded of this movie when I saw one of its song on some channel. The song had Asrani, Sanjay and Rakesh Roshan uniformly dressed. That made me wonder “what is happening!!!” as actors normally like to standout or look unique etc. I also saw a few other songs and in most of these the heroes are uniformly dressed. I haven’t seen the movie but I presume there must be an element of comedy in it if the song with this post is an indication. It has Asrani, Sanjay and Rakesh Roshan pampering their mother in the voices of Nitin Mukesh, Kishore Kumar and Bhupinder.

4th January is the remembrance date of Panchamda, a.k.a. Rahul Dev Burman. 3rd January was the 81st birthday of Sanjay Khan and 1st january was the 82nd birthday of Govardhan Asrani known popularly as Asrani. This post wishes Sanjay Khan and Asrani (belated) wishes health and happiness on their birthdays and thank RDB for giving us years of happiness with his music.


Song-Achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali maa (Trimurti)(1974) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Nitin Mukesh, Kishore Kumar, Bhupinder Singh, Lyrics-Gulshan Baawra, MD-R D Burman

har haal mein ye ghar swarg lage
ye to maa teri maaya hai

o maa o maa

achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali ma
o maa o maa

maara jo kabhi galti pe humen
humse dukh zyaada tujhko hua

hum aansu baha ke chhup ho gaye
lekin maa tera man roya

aisi mamta ki moorat ki
jeevan bhar karte rahe pooja
o maa o maa

achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali ma
duniya bhar ki khushiyaan humko dene waali maa

Blog Day :

There have been two excellent reviews of 83 film which was released recently on 24 December 2021. As such there is not much to add to the review per se. But then the event itself is engraved in golden moments and letters in the annals of sporting history of our country. Well, there always was hockey in which we ruled the roost in those days. People had little doubts in their minds on the continued dominance of West Indies which had already won the first as well as the second world cup in 1975 and 79 respectively. Dark horses India created history by upsetting West Indies in the finals by successfully defending a modest score of 183 runs, a record which stands tall to this day.

Apart from songs and films, railways and cricket (of bygone era) remain amongst the favourite topics on the blog. So, when Avinash ji posted his euphoric post on having watched the film 83 first day first show, there was lot of buzz on our WhatsApp group and its was rather decided that whosoever watches the film should make attempts to write a post on the experiences of not only the film or the event but their own expectations, memories etc.

Well, I am here with my post and would request whatapp group members to ignore reading the next one-line para for obvious reasons and the cliché for which I have become rather infamous. 🙂

I was all but 9 in 1983, having born in Feb’74.

Thus, I knew about India having won the 1983-world cup only a few years later. [Sachin Tendulkar at 10 in the movie is seen dancing in the streets (on someone’s shoulders)]. As such, this post of mine could be some sort of damp squib for keen readers. To add to the misery of writing this post, I am not an avid follower of cricket or for that matter any sport. But, whenever India plays, I always follow up with keen interest. For the said reasons, I am yet to see a full IPL match and can say with enough conviction that I will never ever watch such a match. Further, I have almost completely stopped watching television and my TV table is now occupied by various indoor plants, a new hoppy which I have recently cultivated. Above the TV, creepers such as money plants and broken heart are scaling up the wall to reach the slab. 🙂

However, I have been following follow-up stories of 1983 world cup with all interests. I could completely understand what Kapil Dev’s unbeaten innings of 175 meant for the team, tournament and our country as a whole. With the advent of internet, I have visited web sites pertaining to cricket world cup several times and tried the understand the circumstances under which India went on to upset the two-time defending champions. A perfect example of dark horses turning out to be derby winners. A day after the match, London Times, a British newspaper apparently had the headline “Kapil’s men turn world upside down” on its front page.

With whatever little I have watched on cricket, Kris Srikkanth has been one of my favourite cricketers. In my opinion, he remains one of the few players who played mainly for the crowds. He successfully faced some of the most lethal fast bowlers of different teams.

I remember reading an article in India Today magazine wherein there was a beautiful article entirely dedicated to him. I had been searching for this article published in March 1987 all these years and with renewed interest, I happened to get hold of it in the magazines’ s archives articles. I would recommend readers to spare time to read the article. There have been many a great Indian cricket player over the years. But, the style, controlled aggression, antics on field etc, no one can match the peerless Kris Srikkanth.

Ball racing to the boundary like a bullet was the hallmark of his batting. For every ball that he faced it was always the viewers and not Kris Srikkanth who were afraid that the ball would end up disturbing the furniture behind. He long walks away from the crease towards square-leg umpire, frequent twisting of his nose, closing of his eyes in a flutter, the cursory glance at the skies as if he was reporting to someone after each ball, the meticulous and fast curling of the bat, his legs positioned wide apart on the crease while batting etc. will remain etched in active memories of avid lovers of the game.

Coming back to 1983, but remaining with Kris Srikkanth and his batting style, I am always happy of the fact that with a regal 38 he was the highest scorer of the finals in spite of a few towering batsmen on the opposite camp. Viv Richards scored 33 and that was the second highest individual score in the final.

With all such fond memories, the viewing of the film was for me like travelling back in a time machine. My wife along with my daughter studying II PU are now placed at D.K. Friday 24, the release date of the film, they ended up at U.K. on an unexpected, unplanned and a totally unscheduled visit. My wife has played this pleasant prank on me a couple of times and so even though it was quite surprising, it took just a nano second for me to realise that, yes, they were here for a visit.

On Saturday, 25 Dec, my daughter started this slow and silent campaign that we ought to watch a movie in the only (non-ac) theatre in this town. I do not even bother to follow up which movie plays as I do not go to theatres often. But in this case and to my inner delight it was 83 of all the films that was being screened on that day. And seeing that my daughter was killing time brooding and surfing net for tickets, story etc. I decided that the movie had to be watched anyhow. And so, I saw the film along with my daughter.

Watching films in movie theatres with my wife needs a special mention here. I was placed in Mumbai when I got married in 2003. (Yes, in 3 years, I will be slaying the seven-year itch for the third consecutive time)  🙂

Instead of watching some junk Hindi or Hollywood movie, I thought I would begin my married-life-film-watching-experiences-with-spouse by watching a scientific documentary in the newly opened world’s largest IMAX dome theatre at Bhakti Park, Wadala. My Monorail site was hardly half a km away from the theatre though my residence was far away.

I later realised that my excitement of watching a documentary in a dome theatre was wholly a one-way traffic. Having a keen interest in astronomy, I got rivetted to the documentary show on stars, planets and galaxies. Being a dome theatre, the seats were obviously push back as well as quite reclining on which my wife comfortably dozed off for the entire show. On completion of the show of which I was totally absorbed in, I asked my wife if she had enjoyed the show. She had a brutal reply that she had dozed off from the word go. I realised that we both were travelling in the vastness of space while the documentary was being screened. The only difference was that I had my eyes wide open.  🙂

Thus, being the experience (there were a few more), my wife decided to stay put at home for some house-hold chores and I accompanied my daughter for the 83 show.
The description of the movie has been amply presented in the two posts posted and will be elaborated more when others write in. And so, I will have limited non-chronological bullet-wise observations on the film.

• The film aptly starts with the now legendary catch taken by Kapil Dev dismissing a batsman who could have easily denied India the Cup. Viv Richards. As the ball tends to safely fall into the hands of Kapil Dev, the titles begin, and the movie starts.

• Ranveer Singh has gotten into the skin of the character he plays that of captain Kapil Dev himself. Many a times, his dialogue delivery is simply impeccable. Hats off to him for his efforts in portraying the role with such similarity.

• Kris Srikkanth remains what he has been to the team during their hey days and during the various film promos and stories told on TV earlier too, a complete entertainer.

• The film has tried to keep the aura of those days alive by displaying the runs scored, nature of batsman getting out etc. I only wish, they had more such displays and retained them for a bit longer time than shown in the movie.

• The mood of the nation, prior, during and after the tournament has been captured well.

• The unbeaten knock of 175 by Kapil Dev against Zimbabwe in a do or die match as well as that of the tournament should have been covered in more detail especially since the actual recording and telecast never happened.

• The rotating of the antenna by Indian public with TV sets for better reception brought back fond memories.  🙂

• The premonition of players and other officials remaining still in their positions in the pavilion when the batsman was in good flow is to be seen to be believed and appreciated.

• Kapil Dev pep talk in the dressing room should have been more elaborate and frequent even if they were in Hindi. It has been shown as if he hardly spoke which I feel could not have been the case.

• Kapil Dev’s encouragement talk to his players during the innings break that West Indies team have to still make the “paltry” 183 runs and we will not allow them to achieve it easily is quite emotional and superb.

• PR Man Singh, the Indian manager who accompanied the team to the tournament has been played quite well by Pankaj Tripathi of Mirzapur TV series fame. Given the time space he occupies in the film, Pankaj Tripathi had done full justice to the role. I understand he went to stay with the real Man Singh for a few days in Hyderabad to prepare himself for the role. Much appreciated.

• Wamiqa Gabbi plays Madan Lal’s wife. Why am I mentioning this? I really donno.  🙂  So, (Don’t) keep guessing.

The detailed wiki page of the film has a soundtrack length of about 54 minutes. For obvious reasons, there is no playback as far as songs are concerned. For many in this blog self included the names of present lyricists, singers, composers etc. are all Greek and Latin. Our Avinash ji offered me to send lyrics of any song that I could pick up in the film. That indeed would have made my task a lot easier and I thank him for the outreach.

However, surfing the net whilst writing the post, I came across a very apt song for the occasion. On 17 August 1983 Lata Mangeshkar apparently performed live in a concert in Delhi to facilitate and also raise funds for the winning team on their spectacular victory in the Cricket World Cup tournament.

Joining her in chorus were Nitin Mukesh, Suresh Wadkar and even members of the team including the captain himself. The song for the special occasion was written by renowned lyricist Indeewar and the tune composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. It gives me immense pleasure to bring forth this special song to the readers of the blog.

I would also like to reproduce a snap taken during the Cup award ceremony with Indians occupying the entire ground at Lord’s. It amply showcased the euphoric mood of our nation on winning the world cup in 1983.

Lastly, I would like to end the post with my strong conviction that it’s never too late to honour Kapil Dev with the Bharat Ratna for what he has achieved for our country.
Jai Hind.

Blog Day :

4772 Post No. : 16521

While we in this blog discuss songs, we also discuss other topics of common interest, like sports (mainly cricket), festivals, history, economy etc.

Tokyo Olympics concluded a few days back. As Indians, we had lots of sporting events to look forward to. Indians were participating in many events. Indians had pinned hopes of medals on quite a few of them, seeing that some of them were actually ranked world number 1, 2, 3 etc in their sports and they were given similar seedings too in the Olympics. But most of these sportspersons disappointed.

On the other hand, there were a few who performed beyond their rankings and managed to win medals. India won a medal (silver) on the very first day of the Olympics. First three medals were won by female athletes. Later, males too joined in winning medals.

Icing on the cake arrived on 7 August 2021, the last day of Olympics. The final medal that India won in these games happened to a track and field medal. It was the very first time that India won a track and field medal. And it turned out to be a GOLD medal, no less !

This gold medal event was in men’s javelin throw. Indians had never taken so much intetest in an atheletics event before this Olympics. I was one of those who followed the event closely. Since India actually won the gold, I dug deep and got all the relevant details of this competition. In this article, I present my findings, which is basically a description of How the Javelin Gold was won in Tokyo Olympics.

There were 32 javelin throwers in the competition. They were divided into two groups, viz Group A and group B, each consisting of 16 athletes.

In the qualification round, each javelin thrower was given three attempts in which to achieve the qualifying marks of 83. 5 meters. Based on the performances, 12 javelin throwers were to qualify for the finals.

In case less than 12 javelin throwers achieved the qualification mark, then the remaining slots were to be filled from those who had hurled the javelin the farthest among the non qualifiers.

Only six javelin throwers (three from group A and three from group B) were able to achieve direct qualification by throwing the javelin beyond 83.5 meters. Here are the details of these six direct qualifiers.

Gr A Gr B Overall qualification round rank
Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank
Neeraj Chopra (India) 1 (86.65 m) 86.65 m 1 1
J Vetter (Germany) 3 (82.04 m,82.08m, 85.64 m) 85.64 m 2 2
Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 2 (78.50 m, 85.16 m) 85.16 m 1 3
Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 3 (79.27, 78.96 m, 84.93 m) 84.93 m 2 4
L Etelatalo (Finland) 1 (84.50 m ) 84.50 m (SB) 3 5
Julian Weber (Germany) 1 ( 84.41 m) 84.41 m 3 6

Only six javelin throwers could gain direct qualifications. There were six more slots of finalists to be filled. Those six non qualifiers who threw the javelin the farthest were picked to fill the remaining slots. Following six javelin throwers thus gained indirect qualification for the final:-

Gr A Gr B Overall qualification round rank
Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank
A M Novac (Romania) 3 (83.27 m, 80.90 m, x) 83.27 m (SB) 4 7
V Vesely (Czech) 3 (x, 83.04 m, x) 83.04 m (SB) 5 8
Alaksei Katkavets (BLR) 3 (81.08 m, 81.73 m, 82.72 m) 82.72 m 4 9
Andrian Mardare (Moldova) 3 (80.69, 78.95 m, 82.70 m) 82.70 m 5 10
Pavel Mialeshka (BLR) 3 (x, 82.17m, 82.64 m ) 82.64 m 6 11
Kim Amb (Sweden) 3 (82.40 m, 79.87, x ) 82.40 m (SB) 7 12

Thus four javelin throwers from group A and two from group B gained indirect qualification for the final. Remaining 20 javelin throwers (9 from group A and 11 from group B ) were eliminated.

The qualifying mark of 83.50 m does not appear too daunting for the competitors on paper, seeing that the personal best throws of most competitors, including those who failed to qualify was well over 83.5 meters. Some of the non qualifiers in fact had hurled the spear well over 90 m in the past. Some of them were past Olympic medal winners and world champions as well. Those who failed to qualify for the final included Walcott Keshorn (Trinidad and Tobago)-2012 Olympics gold medalist (90.16 m personal best), Julius Yego (Kenya)- 2016 Olympics silver medalist (personal best of 92.72 m), Cheng Chao Tsun (Taipeh)- Asian record holder with 91.36 m throw, Peter Anderson (Grenada)-current world champion (personal best 87.31 m) etc.

But World class sports is played on the field and it depends on performance on the day. Past records and achievements count for little. It is the three throws in the qualifying competition that determine who goes ahead to the finals and who get eliminated. Only six javelin throwers gained direct qualification. The six javelin throwers sneaked in as indirect qualifiers. The last qualifier who qualified could only hurl the spear to a distance of 82.4 meters, more than one meter behind the qualification mark.

Indians were cautiously optimistic about the chances of Neeraj Chopra because his performance during the current season vis a vis the performance of other leading contenders suggested that he was a medal contender.

Many leading contenders were eliminated after the qualifying round. The biggest gold contender was J Vetter of Germany, who had a season’s best of 97. 76 meters achieved in July 2021. But he too was on the verge of elimination in the qualifying stage, before he survived by crossing the qualifying mark on his third and final throw. Neeraj Chopra of India gave Indians a pleasant surprise by easily qualifying on his very first throw, and that throw was the longest throw of the qualifying stage. Thus he qualified as number 1 qualifier among the 12 qualifiers for the final. Vetter qualified as number 2. Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem qualified at the third place, and Pakistanis suddenly found something to look forward to in the Tokyo Olympics.

The timings of sports telecast of Tokyo Olympics suited India perfectly. The telecast would beging early morning iST and would continue till late evening. Javelin throw finals were scheduled on Saturday 7 August 2021. Unlike the qualifiers, the finals were at night time. It was in the afternoon in India.

The rules for the finals were that all 12 throwers would be given three throws each. The first eight contenders after these three throws would get another three throws each. The throwers would then be ranked based on their best throws.

When the competition began, I took pen and paper and began to note down the throws of the participants. During the first three throws, the sequence of throwers was arbitrary (or so it seemed to me). The number 10 qualifier (Adrian Mardore) threw first followed by Neeraj Chopra (number 1 qualifier), then number 12 qualifier (Kim Amb) followed by number 7 (A M Novak) etc. The first three throws of the twelve throwers in the sequence in which they threw was noted down by me in a table like this :-

S No Thrower (Country) First throw (m) Second throw (m) Third throw (m) Best throw (m) Standing after three throws
1 Adrian Mardare (Moldova) 81.16 81.73 82.84 82.84 Eighth
2 Neeraj Chopra (India) 87.03 87.58 76.79 87.58 First
3 Kim Amb (Sweden) 77.22 78.31 79.69 79.69 Eleventh
4 A M Novac (Romania) 77.03 79.29 x 79.29 Twelfth
5 Vitazlav Vesely (Czech) 79.73 80.30 85.44 85.44 Second
6 Julian Weber (Germany) 85.30 77.90 78.00 85.30 Third
7 Lassi Etelataro (Finland) 78.43 76.59 83.28 83.28 Seventh
8 J Vetter (Germany) 82.52 x x 82.52 Ninth
9 Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 82.40 x 84.62 84.62 Fourth
10 Pavel Mialeshka (BLR) 82.28 79.35 78.13 82.28 Tenth
11 Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 83.98 x x 83.98 Fifth
12 Aliaskei Katkavets (BLR) 82.49 81.03 83.71 83.71 Sixth

After the first three throws, bottom four throwers were eliminated. J Vetter, the world record holder and the overwhelming favourite for the gold, had just one legal throw in his first attempt. That throw of 82.52 m kept him in the fourth position till the second round. But he fouled his third round and as many as five throwers threw longer than his 82.52 m in their third attempts. These five throwers advanced, and Vetter was relegated to the ninth position after third round. Thus he was among those four who were eliminated after round three. It was a big upset. The other three people who were eliminated threw lesser distances than what they had thrown during the qualifying stage, and their elimination was no surprise.

The remaining eight contenders then hurled three more throws in the ascending orders of their standing after three throws, viz the person eighth in the standing threw first and the person standing first threw last.

Here are the throws of the eight javelin throwers in the order in which they took their fourth, fifth and sixth attempts.

S No Thrower (Country) First throw (m) Second throw (m) Third throw (m) Fourth throw Fifth throw Sixth throw Best throw (m) Standing after six throws
1 Adrian Mardare (Moldova) 81.16 81.73 82.84 81.90 83.30 81.09 83.30 Seventh
2 Lassi Etelataro (Finland) 78.43 76.59 83.28 79.20 79.99 83.05 83.28 Eighth
3 Aliaskei Katkavets (BLR) 82.49 81.03 83.71 79.24 x x 83.71 Sixth
4 Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 83.98 x x 82.86 86.67 (SB) x 86.67 Second (SILVER)
5 Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 82.40 x 84.62 82.91 81.98 x 84.62 Fifth
6 Julian Weber (Germany) 85.30 77.90 78.00 83.10 85.15 75.72 85.30 Fourth
7 Vitazlav Vesely (Czech) 79.73 80.30 85.44 (SB) x 84.98 x 85.44 Third (BRONZE)
8 Neeraj Chopra (India) 87.03 87.58 76.79 x x 84.24 87.58 First (GOLD)

One can see that six out of eight throwers who were eligible for three additional throws failed to improve upon their best attempts achieved during the first three attempts. There were just two throwers who achieved their best during the fourth, fifth and sixth attempts. They climbed up the rankings and affected the rankings of those whom they overtook.

Adrian Mardore of Moldova, who was eighth after three throws achieved his best throw of 83.30 m in his fifth attempt. With this throw, which was 2 cm better than the best throw of seventh placed Lassi Etelataro of Norway, climbed up to seventh position, relegating Lassi Etelataro to the eighth position in the final standing.

The other thrower who gave his best during the final three throws changed the higher standings in a major way. Jakub Vadlejch of Czech republic had managed just one legal throw during his first three attempts, but that throw was far enough to keep him in top 8. In his fifth attempt, he hurled the javelin to a distance of 86.67 m. It was season’s best performance for him, just like his throw during the qualification stage was his season’s best. With this throw, he climbed upto the second position. Athletes, who were occupying second, third and fourth position were pushed one place down as a result. So, his compatriot Vitaly Vesely, who too had thrown his season’s best throw in the final, had to be content with the bronze. Julian Weber of Germany, who too had achieved season’s best throw in the final, was fourth. Arshad Nadeem of Pakistan, ended up fifth.

One can see that Neeraj Chopra of India led from the front and he was never threatened for the gold. It all sounds so easy with the benefit of hindsight, but it was obviously not as easy at it looks like. In a country known for missing opportunities, allowing opportunities to slip away, choking at the last moment etc, it was such a refreshing change to see an Indian performing like a seasoned pro, grabbing the contest by the scruff of its neck and not allowing others a sniff of a chance. He qualified for the final in just one throw, ending up at number one among all qualifiers. In the final, his first two throws were longer than the throws of all other competitors and so he had sealed his gold in his first two throws itself. It looks so easy if you have a talented sportsman representing you. In reality, it was the very first time that an Indian was winning a Track and Field medal in an Olympics.

Indians would have settled for medal of any hue, even bronze, as their first track and field atheletics medal. The fact that it was a gold has immense significance. European nations keep winning track and field golds, and that changes nothing, but a solitary track and field Gold won by an India will change the fate of atheletics in India, and elsewhere. Let us not forget, even today India is world’s fifth biggest economy. If Indians take to atheletics with the same vengeance with which they take to cricket, then atheletics worldwide will get more popular than what it already is because one sixth of world population lives in India. We have already seen what happened to cricket in India (and worldwide) when India won ODI world cup in 1983, and later T20 World cup in 2007. I can foresee a situation when an atheletics revolution will take place in India in near future.

Those who think that this medal is one off and the normal service will resume after that, I disagree. THis event has changed Indian sports for ever. I can cite an Indian example to prove my point. India was a very weak chess playing nation till 1970s, that too when Chess was a game that originated in India. It was belived that Indians can never become chess grandmasters. It was in 1988 that India had her first chess grandmaster (Vishwanathan Anand). This event popularised chess in India as never before. Vishwanathan Anand went on to become five times world champion, and India today had 69 grand masters in chess. Chess too has an Olympics, called Chess Olympiad, played every two years. How many of us know that India at present is joint world champion in Chess Olympiad (with Russia)! All this had happened in a matter of three decades. I see a similar thing happening in Athletics. Indian economy and market can easily support and sponsor this forthcoming athletics revolution in India.

If one looks at the medal tally of various nations in Olympics, one will find that the medal tally in a way is a refection on the economic development of a nation. The top ten nations in the medal tally are major economies. Most are high income nations and others are just one rung below, viz Middle income group nations. Sporting prowess in a way has some definite correlation with HDI (Human development Index) of a country. There are some notable exceptions (viz some African nations), but otherwise economical development leads to overall betterment in sporting achievements. Hopefully, India too will join the ranks of top medal winners two to three decades from now, like how India has already become a top chess playing nation, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Russia, USA and other chess superpowers.

What is the medal tally that India achieved in Tokyo Olympics ? One gold, two silvers, four bronze. One two ka four, four two ka one. Hindi movie “Ram Lakhan” had already created a song for this occasion, as far back as in 1989, when Vishwanathan Anand was India’s sole chess grandmaster !

Here is this popular song of its time. It is sung by Md Aziz, Anuradha Paudwal, Nitin Mukesh and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. It is picturised on Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff and others as a dance song.

Remembrance Day   —    Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar (of Laxmikant-Pyarelal)

Today is the 23rd remembrance day of Laxmikant S. Kudalkar one half of the music composer duo fondly known as L-P.  They were the sole torch bearers by 1988, of the melodious music of the golden era of HFM.   Though RD Burman was still around, but doing very few films.  L-P it seems never took a breather, till the demise of  Laxmikant on 25.05.1998.  I personally don’t know of any instance where Pyarelal composed a film score alone.

Laxmikant–Pyarelal received won 7 awards and 15 nominations for best music direction in the Filmfare awards.

Filmfare Award for Best Music Director– Won

1965 Dosti
1968 Milan
1970 Jeene Ki Raah
1978 Amar Akbar Anthony
1979 Satyam Shivam Sundaram
1980 Sargam
1981 Karz

They have composed close to 3000 songs out of which 896 are posted.  So the tally is so close to 900 mark.   Today is actually Remembrance Day of Sunil Dutt also.  I could have easily found a song by L-P featuring Sunil Dutt to post, but I was reminded of this wonderful group song from ‘Tezaab’ in a video forward in the family group.

Belgaum city has been put under strict lock down for the extended weekend from Friday to Monday.  The video is maybe shot last year showing empty streets, markets and by-lanes of the city.  It was moving very fast, so I failed to recognise much of the blurred views. This song from ‘Tezaab’ 1988 was playing in the background, so I decided to do this song post.  I have always liked the song for the humming in the background, and night journey in the battered vehicle with a broken wind shield.  Chunky Pandey and his friends are singing this song.  While sad looking Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor are trying to enjoy their antics.  Second stanza is filmed on these two with background singing by Alka Yagnik and Shabbir Kumar.  Nitin Mukesh is giving playback to Chunky Pandey.

Peevesie’s Mom would have liked to post this as Chunky Pandey’s song, I suspect.  But I have it as a night song from ‘Tezaab’ by Nitin Mukesh.  That’s how I remembered it and had thought of including it in the ‘Chaandni Raatien’ series.  But since there is no moon visible here, nor it is mentioned in the song, so desisted.

The other day after reading Madhuri’s birthday post on 15th May, I remembered many songs.  Even started one post for a Madhuri song, but could not complete it.  That one is also a hit L-P score.  But for now, that song will have to wait.

For a five-minute song, this is having only 2 stanza’s.  So, I looked for audio version, thinking that it may have an extra stanza.  But there is no extra stanza in the audio version, which is slightly longer with repetition of mukhda.

So, let’s enjoy this hummable, slow, melodious, pensive, meaningful song, written by Javed Akhtar.

And remember Laxmikant Kudalkar, the musician.

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.

wo chaand hai to aks bhi paani mein aayegaa
kirdaar khud ubhar ke kahaani mein aayegaa
(Iqbal Sajid)

Aks – reflection
Kirdaar – character

“jis ke paas koyi saboot nahin hota, kya wo kabhi beqasoor nahi ho sakta.”

This is the dialogue spoken by Meenakshi Sheshadri to Anil Kapoor, a lawyer, when he has refused to take her sister’s Beena’s case.  Meenakshi’s sister is a doctor and a patient dies in her private clinic, after she has administered a medicine to the patient. The medicine contains poison, and the bottle is already in the custody of the courts/police. There is no way anyone can prove that the patient did not die because of the medicine in that bottle. So all the lawyers are refusing the case and Meenakshi and the brother in law Parikshit Sahani, also a doctor, are running from pillar to post to find a lawyer who can defend Beena in the court.

The moment she says this dialogue, Anil Kapoor is transported to his childhood, when his mother Nutan had said the same words to the lawyer/ public prosecutor Amrish Puri, in defense of her husband Girish Karnad.  This whole story is in flash back – the story of Anil Kapoor, his sister and parents.

In the present, Anil Kapoor decides to defend Beena in the courts, and in true heroic style, drinks the medicine from the very bottle to prove that the patient did not die because of the medicine. Within minutes, the case is over, judgment delivered, Beena is ‘ba-izzat bari’.  Parikshit Sahani takes Anil Kapoor to the hospital immediately and treats him to save his life.  What happens to the actual culprit who put poison into the medicine bottle, I don’t know.

The court language in this type of films had glossary like ‘mulzim’ which is the one accused of a crime, ‘mujrim’ is the one whose crime is proved.  Crime is ‘jurm’ and ‘mere faazil dost’ means ‘my esteemed friend’ – this is how lawyers would refer to each other in front of a judge.

So with the case over, the doctors are grateful to Anil Kapoor and Meenakshi is in love with him. The doctors host a party to celebrate and Anil Kapoor on piano, again revives his child hood memory of the theme song at the party. This is Part-II of the song. After this party this dream sequence song, “Ae Mere Khwaabon Ke Shehzaade” comes up. This is a beach song, posted Peevicies’s mom and I have seen that song too just now. That song is one extravaganza on Madh island or Aksa beach and what is Meenakshi wearing in the last sequence? Looks as if she was trying to be a South Indian Cleopatra.

Now back to flashback:  Girish Karnad is convicted of a crime he did not commit. Nutan has tried in vain to get someone to fight her husband’s case against the formidable Amrish Puri. Their happy family is ruined, even as she manages to obtain a stay on the conviction of ‘sazaa-e-maut’, but reached late on the location. Girish Karnad has been hanged. After this I think, she loses her mind and is taken to mental Asylum.

Meanwhile the young children Anil Kapoor and the sister are left to fend for themselves in the big bad world. That is when Anil Kapoor is remembers the song that his mother and father used to sing, with his father on the piano, “Jeet Jaayenge Hum. . .”.  The song is highly motivational, though situational.  It is songs like these which make Laxmikant-Pyarelal such kings of the proverbial situational songs.  Theme song or not, the lyrics and composition is all more than apt for the mood and need of the script.  And to think that the script by Javed Akhtar originally had no scope for songs.

The events of childhood have a profound effect on the young Anil Kapoor and the song motivates him to keep fighting and to always hope and strive to win against all odds. And win he does, grows up to become a lawyer himself, struggles with the system and grows to achieve his goals step by step. All this while he is always conscious of how his mother’s struggles with the system to save his father from being punished from the crime which he has not committed. He has raised his younger sister Khushoo and who is now studying in a college. Anil Kapoor manages to trace his mother also and brings her home. But she is still not well and does not remember her children. Which is a cause for more pain, prompting Anil Kapoor to recall the childhood song again. This is when the Part-III of the song is played when Anil Kapoor and Meenakshi sing this song at home, hoping to revive Nutan’s memory and restore her mental health.

I thought, this was a movie made by GP Sippy, but turns out it was eventually made by Subhash Ghai.   Actually I found this song on YouTube a few days ago and saved the link to see it sometime. Today I got the time to see it and all the memory of the story, dialogue and songs etc. came rushing in the mind.

Jab itna kuchh likhne ke liye yaad aa gayaa to ek post to ban hi jaati hai. 🙂

The song is played multiple times throughout the film. This can’t be anyone other than Anand Bakshi’s doing, the lyrics I mean. Singers are Shabbir Kumar (in full Rafi mode) for Anil Kapoor, Nitin Mukesh for Girish Karnad and Lata Mangeshkar for Nutan, Meenakshi Sheshadri and Khushboo.

It shows that successful people have motivation for success, early in life and have to be ready for struggle. Come what may, we will not give up. Because life is always a struggle, even if one cannot foresee the difficulties to come. ‘Jung’ is not war here, but an avowal not to give up against adversities. In every way, it is struggle to succeed and defeat the bad. And this struggle starts with self to improve the self and its abilities and make them pure, truthful, honest and trustworthy. Because to do ‘jung’ with your lot is to do ‘jidd-o-jahad’ i.e. to struggle and strive.

I found a poem in the photos which I had taken in the hotel at Jaipur, during our vacation visit earlier this year.  I am searching the net for the name of the poet but even Rekhta.com is not having the works of this poet.  The title of the poem is ‘Kuchh Kehna Chaahta Hoon”.

tum kuchh lafz
musta’aar de do
main bolna chaahta hoon

mere lafzon ke haathh
ab sar par aa chuke hain
jaise haarey huye sipaahi

wo itna jhooth pee chuke hain
sach keh nahin sakte

apaahij, beemar aur za’eefon ki tarah
un ko sirf taknaa aata hai

tum kuchh lafz
musta’aar de do
main kuchh kehnaa chaahta hoon.

Musta’aar – lend, loan for a while.
Apaahij – handicap
Za’eef – aged, frail with age

# The Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 4 # Nitin Mukesh #
———————————————–———————————–——————

Welcome all to this fourth article in this series where we are discussing the ‘special voices of the seventies’ and the nostalgia and memories associated with the songs of these ‘special voices’ from Hindi Movies.

As Gulzar Sahab has said in one of his famous albums. . .

door kahin jab wo pahaad ka tilaa baadlon se dhhak jaata tha
to ek aawaaz sunaayi deti

Zaahir si baat hain ki umr ke jis padaav par aap honge, aur jo yaadein aapke zehan mein bas gayin hongi, aap ko bhi kuchh aawaazein sunaayi deti hongi, aur ho sakta hai unka andaaz shaayad kuchh alag sa hota hoga, jaise ki mujhe lagta hai ki ye aawaaz. . .

Noorie. . .     Noorie. . .

Lekin ye aawaaz to mere dil ki gehraaiyon mein tab se hi utar gayi thi. . .

Since, and so far, I vaguely remember to have heard this song playing on the radio in home and too on a dark rainy night. Maybe I was in half sleep when this song was playing on radio. Even today whenever I get to listen to this song, I have the same nostalgic feeling always

teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein
kuchh dekha hamne, kya dekha

May be that time I didn’t even have this knowledge of who was singing but as I grew up and this voice also grew up over the years leaving behind very few yet unforgettable gems in the history of HFM. The most popular of them all, I think, must be this,

zindagi kin aa toote ladi ee
pyaar kar le ghadi do ghadi

Yes!! Today we are discussing Nitin Mukesh under this series of ‘Special Voices’. As I took this journey through his biography and filmography (or discography), as usual, I am filled with ‘nostalgia’ and the years and those songs which brings back many memories. Maybe he has sung very less songs in numbers but almost all of them are so special and unique that one cannot forget them easily.

Nitin Mukesh was born on 27th June, 1950, to a celebrity father who by then had established himself in HFM. There were days he saw his father struggling and they didn’t have enough money to pay even his school fees. And on the other hand, Mukesh, who unlike him wanted that his children get good higher education, sent Nitin to the London School of Economics. However, like his father Nitin was also not interested and not good in studies and hence requested his father to allow him to come back home and leave studies and pursue singing. There after Nitin used to accompany his father on all of his musical tours and stage programmes. He was doing this since he was nine.

As his father Mukesh used sing his own songs in these programmes he asked his son that he should sing other singers’ or specifically Rafi Saab’s songs. Nitin Mukesh remembering this has talked about how great his father was and how much both of them respect and loved Rafi Saab’s singing. It is said that Raj Kapoor wanted that Mukesh’s son should sing a song for his son Rishi in the movie ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970) and so Nitin had given his voice for Rishi Kapoor in this song.

Earlier Nitin Mukesh was mainly interested in singing and doing stage programmes only, however on insistence from his father he took on to singing in his movies and thus make a debut in singing with this song from ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer’ (1974), a duet with Vani Jairam,

teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein
kuchh dekha hamne, kya dekha

Moving forward with Gaapoochi Gaapoochi Gam Gam’ (‘Trishul’, 1978) and ‘Wo Aurat hai tu mehbooba’ from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ also of 1978. And reaching the popular heights with Zindagi ki naa toote ladi’ in ‘Kranti’ (1981). He continued the same magic with two songs from the movie ‘Nakhuda-1981’ of which “Suno Ik Baat Bolen” is already posted on the blog. After that very few playback songs, as I think he mainly got involved with doing stage shows only and singing ‘bhajans’.

During those years I was in Kota (Rajasthan) and I had bought his album on cassette, ‘Nehanjali’ by HMV which had ‘bhajans’ composed by Shekhar Sen. This album was released in 5/89 and it was added to my collection on 28.10.1989 (may be around ‘Diwali’ festival, if I am correct).

However the songs of ‘Eeshwar’ (1989) especially “Ram ji Ne Dhanush Toda”  and one song in particular from the movie ‘Clerk’ (1989) – “Rakh Gita Par Haath”, are those which were quite good and were appreciated well, with ‘Ye Paisa Bolta Hai” from ‘Kaala Baazaar’ being the most popular. Other favorites that I want to list are – “Tu Mujhe Suna Main Tujhe Sunaaun’ from ‘Chaandni’ (1989), and ‘So Gaya Ye Jahaan’  topping the popularity charts in the previous year of 1988. Among his other songs I like ‘Zindagi Ka Naam Dosti’ from ‘Khudgarz’ (1987}, and “Dil Ne Dil Se Kya Kahaa” from ‘Aaina’ (1993). However, as said earlier Nitin Mukesh had been continuing with his stage shows, and we can find the details of his latest tours on his website here.

On our blog so far, we have only four of Nitin Mukesh songs (all duets) posted. Out of the many of his songs that are yet to make it on the blog, and taking a ‘liberty’ for this series I have selected a song not from the decade of 1971-80 but, for this today’s post I have selected a ‘very special and lovely song’ from a 1989 movie, for this today’s special day too. This is a song from the 1989 movie ‘Santosh’, which is also making a debut on the blog today.

This song was lying dormant in my memory and got revived in 2010-2011, after many years, during a discussion with a friend.

Thereafter, when I joined this blog as a ‘lyrics contributor’ I had shared this song with Atul ji in 2012. In fact, thereafter I have shared all the songs of this movie with him. However they are yet to be posted. It is opportune that Nitin Mukesh’s birth anniversary is on 27th June’ which incidentally is a ‘special day’ for me too. 🙂

‘Santosh-1989’ was an East-n-West Movies presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan. Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. The star cast includes Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pichoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar and others. The story of this film was written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by VV Kamat, assisted by Ashok Naik. Cinematography was done by Radian Kinagi. Lyrics of this movie were written by Santosh Anand and Manoj Kumar. Music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The film Was passed by Censor board on 28.02.1989.

A brief about this movie from IMDB is reproduced here below;

Cold-hearted and manipulative Kamla has fallen in love with a poor man and marries him and has a child named Santosh. She soon realizes that life is not fun living in poverty, and abandons her child and husband, and returns back to her father and his wealth. She re-marries millionaire Kailashpathi, and has a child named Kundan from him. Years pass by, Kundan and Santosh have both grown up. Kundan is the owner of the mill with his mom, while Santosh is a struggling mill worker, and a union leader. A confrontation ensues between the mill and the workers, and Kamla is able to negotiate a settlement and get the workers back to work. But then, she fails to keep her promise to the workers. Santosh opposes this, and she sets her goons and Kundan against him. Santosh is abducted and held prisoner by Kamla and Kundan, and the only way he can be released is when he compromises with them.

The today’s song is a duet song sung by Nitin Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. On screen it is lip-synced by Manoj Kumar and Herma Malini respectively, while many other artists are present and can be seen in the picturization of this song. One can easily spot Sarika in this crowd of party-goers.

In Hindi movies, people are shown falling in love even though they often cannot afford it. Just like one cannot sing bhajan on an empty stomach (one Hindi saying), one cannot afford to fall in love unless one is financially independent and secure (it is a Hindi saying of my creation 🙂 )

We often find people telling us that they remained uneducated because of poor financial conditions, but we will never find a drunkard who allows poor financial conditions to come in the way of him becoming a drunkard. Likewise, in Hindi movies we will never find a pair of lead actors telling us that they were not in a situation to lip sync a romantic duet because of lack of financial independence.

“Trishul”(1978) has as many as four duet songs and they are picturised on three pairs. Sanjeev Kumar and Waheeda Rehman lip sync one duet while Shashi Kapoor and Hema Malini lip sync two duets. Going by the story, Sanjeev Kumar and Waheeda Rehman were not in a position to lip sync a romantic duet but they did so even if they could not afford it.

Shashi Kapoor and Hema Malini are both shown as financially independent, so they can very well afford to fall in love and sing duets. They sing two duets and that is quite acceptable as far as I am concerned.

I quite like the fact that Amitabh Bachchan and Raakhi do not sing any duet in the movie because they actually cannot afford to.

The seventh and final song from the movie happens to be the fourth duet of the movie. It is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Lata. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. music is composed by Khayyam.

The song is lip synced by Sachin and Poonam Dhillon in a swimming pool. Now, here is a pair of actors who are college students and they are financially dependent on their parents. But like archtypical drunkards, they do not allow their lack of financial independence come in the way of singing a romantic duet.

With this song, “Trishul”(1978) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.
