Hullo Atuldom

Today is the first birthday of Balu sir after he left us due to Covid related complications. The singer, actor, music director, dubbing artist, television presenter and film producer Sripathi Panditaradhyula Balasubrahmanyam a.k.a S.P. Balasubrahmanyam would have turned 75.

He was a huge bhakt of Mohd. Rafi. There are various video available in the public domain where he has stated this.
Last year our Nahmji had poured her heart into this post when the news of Balu sir’s passing broke on the news channels. And our Pradeepji had written his feelings in the comments to this post. Those were the feelings of practically all his fans.

But I don’t want to make this into a sad tribute as Balu Sir was a very lively person. He was a live-wire in his shows and performances on stage. He had a great hold on his art. And he was an automatic choice for giving playback when Southern superstar Kamal Haasan made his debut in Hindi films.

He played the hero’s friend (who is a singer) in the 1981 remake of the 1953 Telugu hit ‘Pakkinti Ammayi’. The remake was also called ‘Pakkinti Ammayi’. And no marks for guessing that these were the Telugu remakes of the Bengali original ‘Pasher Bari’ which was the inspiration for ‘Padosan’. ‘Pakkinti Ammayi’ was possibly Balu Sir’s acting debut. Before that he had done guest appearances in a movie or two. Hope that explains why I have listed him as an actor in the opening para. This was not his only acting assignment.

I have seen a Tamil movie in the late ’80s where he played a 40-year-old widower father to a teenage daughter. His was a natural and effortless acting. The highlight of the movie was a song in which he sings the antaras in a single breath. The director of the movie had asked Balu Sir if he could do the entire five minute song in a single breath and the singer was said to have replied that then he would have to find someone else to complete the movie as it was impossible to sing a song of that length in one shot. 🙂

There was one other movie, again in Tamil, where he played a good-natured cop and friendly father to Prabhu Deva. This was the movie with which audiences got to see Prabhu Deva the dancer for the first time and SPB as his father was simply too adorable. And he had acted in many Telugu and Tamil till 2018. He was seen in a few Kannada movies too and one Malayalam movie.

He was the default choice when it came to dubbing Tamil movies into Telugu (and the other way too) for Kamal Haasan till 2010. He had dubbed for Ben Kingsley when Gandhi was released in Telugu. He gave voice for seven characters (including the female character) in the Telugu version of Kamal Haasan’s Dasavathaaram out of the 10 characters that Kamal played.

His work in Hindi films began with “Ek Duje Ke Liye” as we all know and was the preferred voice for Salman Khan in some of his initial movies. And he has sung for many movies the last of which was ‘Chennai Express’ and the dubbed version of ‘Linga” in 2014.

He had hosted and judged the Telugu and Kannada equivalent of Indian Idol.

He was a recipient of Padma Shri (2001), Padma Bhushan (2011) and Padma Vibhushan (announced this year). He has won 6 National awards for Best Singer for songs in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi. He has records for recording 21 songs in a day in Kannada, as also 19 Tamil songs in a day. He is said to have done something similar in Hindi also.

Personally I am a huge fan of this personality and would have loved to post that Tamil song where he has sung the Antaras in a breath. But I am settling for the dubbed version of his song/dance with Prabhu Deva from the dubbed movie ‘Humse Hain Muqabala’. It’s Tamil original was “Kadhalan” (‘Loverboy’ that released in 1994). It had a cast of Nagma, Prabhu Deva, Girish Karnad, Raghuvaran and S P Balasubrahmanyam. It was directed by S. Shankar who has made movies that had a lot of special effects of which we can see samples in the songs of this movie too. A R Rehman was the music composer. The songs for the dubbed Hindi movie were written by P K Mishra. Today’s song is in the voices of Udit Narayan, SPB and his daughter SPB Pallavi. The same trio sang this in the Tamil movie too.

Lyrics

tara tara tara tara ra ra
tara tara tara tara ra ra
premika ne pyar se jo bhi de diya
tere vaaste hai neelam jaisa
premika ne pyar se jo bhi chhu liya
tere vaaste hai sone jaisa
premika ko teerth maano
pyar ko bhi swarg jaano
pyar ke sangeet mein
mm hmm mohini suraagini
pyar ke sangeet mein
mm hmm mohini suraagini

hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
sa ni sa aa
sa re ga re
sa ni pa ni
sa ni sa aa
sa ga ma ma pa ga re sa
sa ni sa aa
sa re ga re
sa ni pa ni
sa ni sa aa
sa ga ma ma pa ga re sa
tara tara ra ra
tara tara ra ra

premika ne pyar se jo bhi likh diya
mere vaaste hai kavya ke samaan
dilruba ne pyar se jo bhi de diya
mere vaaste prasaad ke samaan

phool mala do rupaiya
teri zulf mein sajaa phool sau rupaiya
jo mithaai ek rupaiya
tumne munh laga ke mujhko di
toh lakh rupaiya

hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm

saajana ne pyar se chhu liya jinhe
woh shool hai phool jaise
saajana ne pyar se chhu liya jinhe
woh shool hai phool jaise
premika ko teerth maano,
pyar ko bhi swarg jaano
pyar ke sangeet mein
mm hmm mohini suraagini
pyar ke sangeet mein
mm hmm mohini suraagini

pyar kabhi waqt-faqt dekhta nahin
har ek waqt hai theek pyar mein

pyar kabhi rang-roop dekhta nahin
kaaluraam bhi hai theek pyar mein
prem-jyoti na bujhegi
aaj hamdam kuchh to prem kar le

yahaan maan apmaan to kuch bhi nahin
ye haqeeqat duniya samajhti nahin

badale yeh zameen aasmaan
par chaahaten nahin badale
laila-majnu pyaar ki woh
dastaan poochhe inn hawaaon mein
saajan teri chaahaton mein dil mera
kho gaya teri chaahaton mein kho gaya
saajan teri chaahaton mein dil mera
kho gaya ye dil tumhaara ho gaya

tara tara tara tara ra ra
tara tara tara tara ra ra

Hullo Atuldom

Back to writing after a gap of 3 weeks. Lovely three weeks. Spent among the hills of North- East India and South India. Must thank my nephew for insisting that I accompany them. If the Himalayas and its snow-clad peaks are a heavenly sight so are the mountain ranges of the Nilgiris in the south – the common feature being acres of tea gardens. For the second weekend outing to the Nilgiris, I hold my son and niece responsible.

Trust humans to spoil a good thing. Where there was a lot of discipline among the locals at both places; tourists have ruined Ooty as much as say Lonavla, Khandala or Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra. Thankfully Sikkim has not faced much tourist onslaught and so is much cleaner. The air in these hill stations are so pollution free one doesn’t feel like returning to pavilion and the reality of daily routine. I am sure our Sadanand ji will be nodding in agreement being an avid traveller and having visited many such pristine locations. Hope I am right?

More about my travels some other time, I will get straight to the topic of this post.

This post is to wish the lady with the dazzling smile a very happy birthday. Unbelievable that she turned 51 yesterday. The dancer who out-dances her co-star without meaning to and effortlessly at that. But she is not all song and dance only; she is great in exhibiting all emotions with her eyes, face and voice. Just like the heroines of yesteryear, specially Madhubala, with whom she used to be constantly compared. Yes yes. I am speaking of Madhuri Dixit (now Nene). Having made her debut in movies through the 1984 Rajshri Productions ‘Abodh’ and tasting success with ‘Tezaab’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Tridev’, etc. she made a place for herself among the top-ranked heroines of Bollywood. Her teaming with Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Jackie Shroff (all the reigning stars of that period) was well received by the audiences. In the later half of the 90s she also teamed successfully with the 3Khans. She was lucky to have roles written specially for her as in Prakash Jha’s ‘Mrityudand’ and MF Hussain’s ‘Gaja Gamini’.

As much as I love Madhuri and her movies with their songs and dances, there are some songs of her’s which I don’t approve of. For example, her song in the movie ‘Anjaam’ – “Athraa Baras Ki Kunwaari Kali Thi. . . Choodi Tooti Chane Ke Khet Mein” or the song from ‘Khalnayak’ – “Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai”; and then there is ‘Mera Piya Ghar Aaya O Ram ji” in ‘Yaarana’ or even “Dhak Dhak Karne Laga” from ‘Beta’. All these songs and some more of that type, which made Madhuri Dixit a dancing-star, are full of double meanings and were lapped up by the public. But there also is a greater number of Madhuri songs which are just as popular and have more ‘decent’ lyrics. For example, “Didi Tera Devar Deewana”, and her songs from ‘Devadas’, ‘Saajan’, ‘Sangeet’ etc. (no, I am not going to list her filmography here 🙂 ). The song with this post is one such song.

It is from Rajkumar Santoshi’s 2000 release ‘Pukaar’ (making a debut on the blog).  The main cast of this film is Madhuri with Anil Kapoor and Namrata Shirodkar and a supporting cast of Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Rohini Hattangadi, KD Chandran, Neeraj Vora, Danny and Prabhu Deva (just for a song). It is a well-made film based on espionage in the army and had a love triangle added for spice which gives the central characters a lot of scope to showcase their ‘sacrificing attitudes’. The songs are penned by Javed Akhtar and AR Rehman is the composer. This song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Kavita Krishnamurty. It is a stage show to celebrate some event in the army cantonment. The song shows Madhuri decently matching steps to Prabhu Deva’s vigorous dance. Anil Kapoor, Namrata and the other members of the cast are in the audience which join in towards the song’s climax.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Madhuri!

The film Sapnay(1997), was dubbed from a TeleguTamil Film named “minsaara Kanavu”. I found this while looking for information about the story etc. here. I have seen this movie, maybe once or maybe in parts. I remembered a part of the story and songs, which were very melodious. The song “Chanda re chanda re” is a favourite with me for many reasons. First is the melody, which makes it such a hummable song. I especially like the interlude music, which makes Kajol respond and start singing with Prabhu Deva. And the way it is picturized next to an ‘urban pond’ with slum dwellers living around it. And the most important factor of all is Prabhu Deva’s choreography and dance, and the non-serious way he is treating the whole thing. I am guessing Prabhu Deva is the choreographer here, as he is a choreographer first than a dancer, then an actor turned action director to full fledge Film Director, when last heard.
