Amitabh Bachhchan, the star of the Millennium, was born in the than Allahabad (which is the English name of city named Ilahbad in Urdu) on 11.10.1942. His given name is Inquilab Srivastava, as per Wikipedia. This is a surprise for me and surely for many people, as a never heard fact. Also has the distinction of acting as the hero in the film ‘Inquilab’ not named after him :-). His father did name him after the slogan of freedom movement “Inquilab Zindabad”. I have never heard of anyone named ‘inquilab’, but have a friend named ‘Kranti’ which is the same thing with change in language only.

So, on 11.10.2019, he is celebrating 77th birthday as the most celebrated star actor and film personality. The Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shree in 1984, the Padma Bhushan in 2001 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015 The Government of France honoured him with its highest civilian honour, “Knight of the Legion of Honour”, in 2007 for his exceptional career in the world of cinema and beyond. As per Wikipedia page again, he has won 15 filmfare awards, the most nominated actor with 41 nominations so far and still counting.

His achievements include 4 national awards and Dada Saheb Phalke award for “Lifetime Achievement”.

Luckily, I had the lyrics of this song from the film “Shaan” (1980) ready to present as the birthday celebration post. I said in my reply to Peevecie’s Mom’s comments on this post that BEST buses is a topic of another post. I had this song in mind, most of which is picturized on a BEST double decker bus. “BEST” was formerly Bombay Electricity Supply and Transport, now it is renamed as ‘Brihan Mumbai Electricity Supply and Transport”. My father has been saying this to us right from the beginning that though BEST’s face are the buses which have been the more reliable lifeline of Bombay since almost a century now, its main business and source of income is the electricity supply to the city areas.

If I have to write about the BEST than the story has to start with my father. It is in family folklore that my father had after completing engineering had the option of coming to Mumbai (than Bombay) or to go to Lucknow to join the Railways. This was in the early 60’s, and Bombay was a known place of people in the family, who used to visit it for business purposes also. Also my mother’s ‘Maternal uncle’ had studied in Grant Medical College in the 40’s and everyone was familiar with the city. There was a job in hand in Lucknow, which is an unknown place, nobody in the family had ever been and far away from Belgaum. The family was in favour of Bombay as my father’s sister was already staying here at Kalyan. The decision was left to my father’s youngest sister, who voted in favour of Bambai. So he came to Bombay and joined BEST as a “foreman” trainee. There is a lot more I want to write about my father’s journey (most of it is related to BEST), but will save it for another post. Sometimes I do wonder, if he had gone to Lucknow instead of coming to Mumbai, how different the things would have turned out. I envy the people who have spent their formative years in Lucknow(met a few in my working life), their diction of Urdu language. Some of them, though convent educated did speak a fluent form of spoken khari boli which is closer in diction and grammar to the Urdu that our teachers taught us, compared to my own, the so called Urdu medium product, with our typical bambaiyya dialect. More of the royal ‘aap’ and ‘hum’ in the conversations of people of my generations who spent years in Lucknow, or thereabouts, even as far as some northern cities of Madhya Pradesh.

Will go back to Amitabh Bachchan for now. The first movie I am aware of watching in the theatre is “Do aur do Paanch”, with a similar star cast of Amitabh, Shashi Kapoor and Parween Babi, similar to ‘Shaan’ I mean. Incidently both these films were released in the same year. But we all saw “Do aur do paanch” at Belgaum during summer vacations, whereas “Shaan” was seen in Mumbai. Thereafter, Amitabh Bachchan movies were seen regularly, with the whole family. The movies of before 1980 are all seen on TV, but the movies after 1980, including “Silsila”, “Kaalia”, “Namak Halaal”, ‘Naseeb”,”KhudgarzKhuddaar”, “bemisaal”, ‘Laawaris” etc. I remember watching in theatre.

My personal favorite Amitabh films are not the comic or multistarrers, but his solo films like ‘Zanjeer’, ‘Bemisaal”, ‘Kaalia”, “Abhimaan” ‘Anand’ etc. Among the films of the new millennia, I have seen a few, but missed most of them. He is without doubt the longest running superstar of the hindi film industry.

So here in this song there are four singers, Kishore Kumar for Amitabh Bachchan, Mohammed Rafi for Shashi Kapoor, Asha Bhosle for Parveen Babi and Usha Mangeshkar for Bindiya Goswami. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist and is composed by R. D. Burman.

The film is ‘Shaan’(1980), also mentioned in para 4 above.

I had not heard of a film named ‘Chatran’ (1988) until recently. The title of the film was unusual. I was wondering as to why the film in which Gulzar and R D Burman were associated, has remained obscure. After a search on the Google, I got the answer.

There was a Japanese film ‘Koneko Monogatari’ (1986) which became the most popular film in Japan in 1986 and continues to get earnings from this even now. Due to the film’s popularity, Columbia Pictures Industries (now Sony Pictures) dubbed the film in English under the title ‘The Adventures of Milo and Otis’ (1989). The English version film also became a box office hit.

But, before the English version of the film was released, the Indian film producer, Gul Anand got it dubbed in Hindi, titled ‘Chatran’ (1988). The film’s cast consisted of only the animals who did the live actions in the film. It is the story of a friendship between Chatran (the kitten) and Poosky (the pug-nosed puppy). So there were no dialogues in in all the versions of the film. The dubbing part is only of the narrators in the films. I watched the Hindi version of the film on the internet. The film is of 70-minute duration. The gist of the story is as under:

On a farm, a cat gives birth to seven kittens of which one of the male kittens, Chatran is naughty and is curious about its surroundings which sometime lands him in trouble. Chatran becomes friendly with mild-mannered Poosky and they become inseparable. They play ‘hide and seek’ game in the court yard of the farm in which Poosky is always a seeker and Chatran, a hider. But in this game, sometime Chatran gets in to trouble due to his curiosity. For instance, Chatran gets trapped in a chimney and with great difficulties, comes out of it with an ashen face.

One day, both Chatran and Poosky go towards the shore of a stream. Out of curiosity, Chatran enters into a wooden box lying in the stream water at the shore. Because of Chatran’s playful nature, the wooden box gets drifted to flowing stream. Poosky tries to save him by jumping into the stream but the wooden box gets drifted away from him. Poosky keeps trailing Chatran from the shores of the stream. From here onward, Chatran’s adventure starts.

Rest of the film is about how Chatran faces the problems and escapes on each occasion. He faces a bear but in nick of the time, Poosky comes to his rescue and fights with bear. Once Chatran comes out of the stream, he wanders in the forest and gets into trouble with snakes, bear and seagulls etc but successfully escapes. The positive side of his adventure is that during his wandering in the forest, he is sheltered by a deer and a pig with her piglets.

Finally, Chatran and Poosky unite in a vast meadow. They come back to their farm. They find their own mates and leave separately. They raise their own kittens and puppies. The film ends with Chatran and Poosky meeting each other with their extended family in the old farm house.

There were charges levelled against the original Japanese and English version films by Animal Rights Activists that there were cruelties to animals used in the filming. For example, there was a scene in which kitten plunges from a cliff and falls in the sea. Also, there was fight between the puppy and the bear. But the charges were never substantiated. However, I did not find any such problem for the Hindi version of the film from animal rights activists like PETA in India. Incidentally, the original Japanese film was of the duration of about 90 miniutes. But both the English and Hindi versions were of the duration of about 70 minutes. It is quite likely that some scenes which might have invited the wrath of Animal Rights Activists may have been deleted.

After watching the film, I personally felt that the scene in which the Chatran (the kitten) meows in pain when bitten by a crab (or scorpion?), looked to me real. Also, Chatran appeared stressful when he was drifting in the wooden box in the stream. And it is one of the longest scenes in the film. I do not know whether an animal put into such a stressful situation by a person, comes under the definition of ‘cruelty to the animal’.

As in the case of the Japanese and English versions of the film, the Hindi version,’Chatran’ (1988) has a ‘Sutradhaar’ (Narrator) and that function was superbly handled by Gulzar. At some places, he appears to have deviated from the original version. For example, in the beginning of the film, his narratives have unusual imageries which are not in the original Japanese version as well as in English version of the film:

Do bade bade sansaar hain ye, pariwaar hain ye.
Aakash aur dharti achche rishtedhaar hain ye.
Raat aakaash ki beti hai.
Kuchh kaali hai.
Aakaash ne gore chaand ki bindi de kar
isko chunmun karke taaron ke gahane pehanaayen hain.
Aur din aakaash ka beta hai.
Gora bhi hai magroor bhi hai.
Dharti par uski fazaa bhi hai.
Fazaa ke laakhon aur karodon chehare hain.
In cheharon se dharti par rounak rehti hai.
In sab mein zindagi behti hai.
In sab mein zindagi behti hai

The film has only one song of 4 stanzas, each stanza being played on 4 different occasion in the film. The last stanza is played with the montages of the film as credit titles roll. Asha Bhosle sings the words of Gulzar. The song is set to music by R D Burman.

With this song, ‘Chatran’ (1988) makes its debut in the Blog and also gets ‘yippied’ at the same time.

Naseeruddin Shah, in a chat with a newspaper journalist sometime in early 2014, had revealed that there were about 35 Hindi which have been completed in all respect but remained unreleased till that day. If the numbers are correct, it could be some sort of a dubious record for a Hindi film actor. But I am not surprised. Naseeruddin Shah has been mostly associated with the ‘parallel’ and the ‘middle of the road cinemas. And for such types of films, it is very difficult to get distributors to release the films.

Out of curiosity, I searched for the list of Naseeruddin Shah’s unreleased films on the internet but drew a blank. I could trace out names of his few unreleased films which included one untitled film directed by Mrinal Sen some time in 1970s, ‘Musaafir’ (1986) ‘Libaas’ (1988) directed by Gulzar, ‘Time Machine’ (1992) directed by Shekhar Kapoor, ‘Eelctric Moon’ (1992, English), ‘101 Days (1992), ‘Private Detective : Two Plus Two Plus One’ (1997), ‘The Coffin Maker’ (2013) ‘Chambal Safari’ (2014), ‘Company Ustaad’ (2014), ‘Mastaan’ (2014), ‘Thaak Jhaank’ (2016) etc.

From the above list, I found the film ‘Musaafir’ (1986) an interesting one for more than one reason. First, the film was directed by Dr. Jabbar Patel, an imminent Marathi theatre and film personality known for producing and directing classic Marathi dramas and ‘middle of the road’ Marathi films. This was Dr. Jabbar Patel’s first association with Hindi film as a director. Second, the film’s star cast included Rekha besides Naseeruddin Shah, Moon Moon Sen, Mohan Agashe, Usha Nadkarni and Pankaj Kapoor. Lastly, the songs were written by Gulzar which were set to music by R D Burman.

The film was based on a Marathi play ‘Ashi Pakhre Yeti’ (Aise Aaten Hain Panchhi or Here Comes the Birds) written by Vijay Tendulkar who wrote the film’s screen-play. Gulzar wrote the dialogues. The film was certified by the Censor Board sometime in 1984 but it could not get a theatrical release.

I searched for the film on the net but could not locate the DVD of the full film. Finally, I located the film which has been uploaded on YT in parts. From the quality of the video, I guess, the uploader has uploaded the video clips of the film ripping off from VHS tape. I also noticed that some parts of the film got repeated in the clips. So it was difficult for me to know as to the proper sequence of the story in the film. With these limitations, I give below a gist of the story of the film:

The story of the film can broadly be divided into two parts. In the first part, the story revolves around Naseeruddin Shah and Moon Moon Sen who have recently married and have been staying in a posh locality in Mumbai. While Naseeruddin Shah is a reserved type of man, Moon Moon Sen is an extrovert and tomboyish. She likes to spend the free time with her male friends. Being a daughter of a wealthy parents and convent educated, she has been brought up in a liberal environment.

Naseeruddin Shah resents his wife’s association with her male friends. But he is unable to tell so to his wife. He feels that if they start a family, perhaps she will have more time to spend with him than with her male friends. But his wife is afraid of child birth because of her earlier trauma of mis-carriage. His resentment inside him about his wife’s behaviour get worsen day by day. He has now become so paranoid that he starts suspecting his wife having an affair with one of her male friends (Benjamin Gilani) and fears that one day she would leave him. With these kinds of paranoid thoughts, he kills his wife by poisoning her and gets her admitted to a hospital in an unconscious state. After few hours of her admission, she dies. The doctors and police are waiting for the post-mortem report. Naseeruddin Shah decides to run away.

The second part of the story starts in a village in Kerala where after wandering all over India, Naseeruddin Shah decides to settle in a village in Kerala. Impulsively, he visits a house of a middle class family and introduces himself as one of the past students of a local school where he had studied during his childhood and where the patriarch of the family was a teacher. He gets this idea to introduce himself from the photographs displayed in the varandah of the house. With this, a comfort level between the family consisting of father (Mohan Agashe), mother (Usha Nadkarni), daughter (Rekha) and son (Pankaj Kapoor) and himself have been established. The family allows him to stay with them for few days.

During his stays, Naseeruddin Shah comes to know that all four of them suffer from different problems arising from lack of confidence. With his wits and persuasion, he changes their lives to make them confident. In the meanwhile, the parents are scouting for a groom for their daughter (Rekha). She is presented to the prospective groom who has come to see her with his family. The groom’s family approves of her but she rejects the groom as she has fallen in love with Naseeruddin Shah who has taken shelter in her house.

Naseeruddin Shah tries to bring the rejected groom and the bride together to discuss as to the reason for her rejection of him. In this process, Naseeruddin Shah comes to know that the Rekha has developed a soft corner for him. He decides to leave the house without the knowledge of the family. But Rekha comes to know of his plans and confronts him as to why he leaving the village. Naseeruddin Shah gives many excuses but Rekha is not convinced. Finally, he reveals that he is a murderer and the police forces are looking for him. Rekha still thinks that he is lying just to justify his leaving the village. Knowing that he is determined to leave, she tells him that she would not now stop him for leaving the village.

Naseeruddin Shah returns to his apartment in Mumbai where he used to stay with his wife. He is overwhelmed with the nostalgia. While standing in front of a mirror in his bedroom watching his own reflection, images of his wife and Rekha come. The faster interchanges of images in the mirror of Moon Moon Sen and Rekha make him emotionally unstable. He commits suicide by a gun shot at his own head.

The film has three melodious songs of which I have chosen to present the song ‘thhak gaya hoon mujhe sone do’ sung by Kishore Kumar. This song is played as a background song which comes in the film at a crucial stage. Naseeruddin Shah is running away from Mumbai after killing his wife. The song symbolises the transition from his Mumbai story to the next story in a Kerala village to start his life afresh.

The song is also available in studio recording version with somewhat different orchestrations with an additional antara. I like this version more than the film’s sound track version for its orchestration. From the studio version, one can notice that before Kishore Kumar starts singing, there is a faint voice (probably of R D Burman) saying ‘1, 2, 1, 2, ‘start’. After the second antara of singing, Kishore Kumar makes a mistake by repeating the second antara. There is a faint voice saying ‘cut’ and he stops singing. Some instructions to Kishore Kumar, probably from R D Burman in faint voice can be heard after which R D Burman repeats his part of singing and Kishore Kumar takes over his singing of third antara. In the lyrics given below, I have omitted the repeat portion.

It is a melancholic song in keeping with the situation in the film. Gulzar saab’s lyrics are simple but conveys the depressing situation in his trade-mark style. The tune is melodious and the orchestration is good in the context of the song.

dhoondhte thhe jise wo zara si zameen
aasmaan ke tale kho gayi hai kahin
dhoop se keh do utar jaaye
bahut baat huyi
dhoop se keh do utar jaaye
bahut baat huyi
main thhak gaya hoon
mujhe sone do
o bahut raat huyi

o maloya….aa

yaad aata nahin ab koi naam se
yaad aata nahin ab koi naam se
sab gharon ke diye bujh gaye shaam se
waqt se keh do guzar jaaye
bahut baat huyi
waqt se keh do guzar jaaye
bahut baat huyi

mujhe sone do
o bahut raat huyi

With today’s post/ song the concerned movie achieves “YYIIPPEEEEhood”- a word on the lines of adulthood; not found in any standard dictionary and a creation of this blog just like “atuldom” and “atulites”.

The movie debuted on the blog on 18th January, 2010 and has had a rather slow run on the blog. The movie itself was huge hit in its time with all its songs still on the minds and lips of HFM lovers. (I was a child and I am not sure if I have seen it in a movie hall but have seen it umpteen times on TV.) I am not going into the minute details about the movie and say that it was directed by Dev Anand for his home production. I will also not say that the songs were written by Anand Bakshi and R D Burman was the music director. But the minute the song is posted the reaction is going to be “yeh abhi baaki hai?!!!” This was the reaction to the previous post from this movie too. In fact, Guruji had wondered how that song had escaped from being posted all these years considering it was THE MOST POPULAR song from the movie. My answer to that query would be “so that we could have that wonderful post from you, Sirji.” And the bigger reaction will be “this movie is not yet YYIIPPEEEED!!!” That is why I say wonders don’t cease in this blog of ours.
We are revisiting “Hare Rama Hare Krishna” today. This movie had seven songs and six songs -one of them being a multi-version song- are already posted.

The details of the songs from the movie that have been covered earlier :-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Kaanchi re kaanchi re 2268 18-Jan-10
2 Phoolon ka taaron ka sabka kehna hai Multiple version song 2838 24-Aug-10
3 Dekho o deewaanon tum ye kaam na karo 5098 4-Dec-11
4 I love you kya khushi kya hai gham 9241 4-Jan-14
5 Dum maaro dum mit jaaye gham 14829 7-Jan-19

The reason to revisit the movie today, is to wish the romantic leading lady -Mumtaz- on her 72nd birthday. She has had a journey in Bollywood that started as child star, extra, heroines’ friend etc in A- grade movies as a teenager and heroine of stunt films with Dara Singh etc. Her first adult role was that of the hero Rajendra Kumar’s sister in “Gehra Daag”. She had to wait a long time before bursting on the top heroine slot. By the time she reached the heroine slot she had played a dancer- vamp etc in “Mere Sanam”, “Khandaan”, “Kaajal’’ etc. Possibly the first time her comic side made itself felt was as ‘Meena’ in Mehmood’s “Pyar Kiye Jaa”. Her best times started with “Boond Jo Ban Gayi Moti” where she was heroine to Jeetendra after which she paired him in movies like “Jigri Dost” “Khilona” “Ek Naari Ek Brahmachari” and some more with a guest appearance in “Humjoli”. First time she paired with Rajesh Khanna was in “Do Raaste” followed by “Bandhan” “Roti” “Aap Ki Kasam” etc. She paired opposite the Khan brothers – Feroz and Sanjay- in “Aadmi aur insaan” “Apradh” “Mela” “Dhadakan” “Upasana” etc. So, what I want to highlight here is that many male actors who were lead stars in the movies during the 60s, when Mumtaz played a nimble-footed dancer or second lead-heroine sought her in the 70s to be their main romantic lead; she played heroine to Rajendra Kumar in “Tangewala”. In her career that lasted till 1977 – “Aaina” with Rajesh Khanna was her last as a heroine when she took retirement from movies in favour of family life- she had acted with actors ranging from Dara Singh, Sunil Dutt, Sanjeev Kumar, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Feroz and Sanjay Khan. She even did a movie with Amitabh Bachchan as her hero.

Let us wish our “Kaanchi” a long and healthy life. Wish you a very happy birthday Mumu a.k.a Mumtaz.

“Kudrat”(1981) was produced by B S Khanna and directed by Chetan Anand for Trishakti Productions, Bombay.

This multi starrer movie had Rajkumar, Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Vinod Khanna, Priya Rajwansh, Aruna Irani, Deven Verma, Om Shivpuri, Keshto Mukheri, Shammi, Sapru, Kumar Aditya, Sundar, Vandana Shashtry,, Kalpana aiyyar, Tom Alter, Jolie, Daramveer, Ved Goswami, Raja Duggal, Darshan, Ratna, Rajrani, Ashok Khanna, Sunil Raahi, Pinchoo Kapoor, A K Hangal, Satyen Kappoo, Raj Mehra etc in it.

The movie was a multistarrer but most stars were were past their primes for one reason or the other. So this movie failed to attract me to the movie hall. Even today, I have not watched this movie.

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven of these songs have been covered in the past. The first three songs were covered in early days of the blog viz in 2008 and 2009. The next song was covered in 2013. The penultimate song was covered in 2018.

Here is the details of the songs from the movie that have been covered in the past :-

1 Hamen tumse pyaar kitna Multiple version song 377 12-Dec-08
2 Toone o rangeele kaisa jaadoo kiya 846 4-Mar-09
3 Chhodo sanam kaahe ka gham 1219 4-May-09
4 Dukh sukh ki har ik maala multiple version song 8331 11-Jul-13
5 Saawan nahin bhaadon nahin 14307 27-Apr-18

The eighth and final song from “Kudrat”(1981) is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a get together piano song where an actor (Priya Rajwansh) in this case plays a piano and sings simultaneously- an Herculean task, but people watching Hindi movies have come to regard it as quite an easy task, a baayen haath ka khel. 🙂

The picturisation also shows other main actors viz Raj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna etc. The song culminates when Hema Malini, accompanied by Vinod Khanna, makes a grand entry to the get together.

With this song, all the songs of “Kudrat”(1981) get covered and “Kudrat”(1981) joins the list of movis that are YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Sajti hai yoon hi mahfil (Kudrat)(1981) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Not all journeys have a pre-determined destination.

Sometimes a traveler sets off on a journey, purely with the intention of travel. For how long, which specific places he will travel to, where he will stop, who and what he will encounter…these are all unknown.

All he knows is that he has the desire to travel – and will travel for as long as he has such desire, and the ability to travel.

And it is just as well that he travels without a set destination or time-frame. That would take away from the enjoyment of the journey itself. It is not that the travel is meaningless – it certainly has a purpose. Just that the purpose is to enjoy the journey, not to keep a destination or time-frame in focus.

I’d like to think this blog is one such journey – and Atul is this traveler.

Atul has himself said many times, when he posted his first song on this blog on the 19th of July 2008, he had no idea what it would go on to become. As a music lover, all he wanted was to have a blog of his own. A place where he could post songs of his choice and share his taste with other music lovers. Pretty simple, isn’t it?

At that time, he would’ve been happy if he could have got to a 1000 songs on the blog. That would have been huge.
2000? Amazing!
5000? Are you CRAZY?
10000? Ab bas bhi karo yaar, kuchh zyaada hi ho gaya

But this traveler never stopped travelling. One step at a time, he kept walking. The milestones kept passing by. He acknowledged them – but never stopped. Sort of like “nadiya chale chale re dhaara, chanda chale chale re taara, tumko chalna hoga, tumko chalna hoga”.

Along the way, he met fellow-travellers and became friends with them. They joined him on his journey, so he had company. But he never stopped.

Yes, he might have occasionally slowed down, but the most important thing is – he never stopped.

And that is the only reason we can today celebrate this mega-milestone.

The biggest to date.

15000.

Yes, that’s a thousand songs, fifteen times over.

Mind-boggling.

But, to me, that’s not the whole story.

If you take a flight from Moscow to Vladivostok, it takes about 8 ½ hours.
The Trans Siberian Express train takes about a week.

If I had the time, I know how I’d like to travel.
I’d like to breathe in every moment of the travel – not rush it.

This blog has not rushed through these 15000 songs mindlessly, just for the purpose of statistics. If it had done so, it could’ve reached this milestone much earlier.

No, that was not the idea of this blog at all. Ever.

As I said earlier, Atul’s idea was to share songs with other music-lovers. To have these songs introduced on the blog, discussed in detail with appropriate credits to artistes, with a video/audio and full lyrics.

That was – and continues to be – the format for every single song from day one.

And when you have a format of this type, you want every song to have its own space and time. If you post 20 songs on one day, are you doing justice to each individual song? Won’t it just get lost in the crowd?

So the pace of this blog recognizes this important aspect of music appreciation – don’t overload.

So the bigger story (for me at least) is HOW we have got to 15000.

One song at a time, ranging from 1 to about 7 songs a day (7 itself is a high number), we have come this far over TEN years and NINE months. Yes, we are in our 129th month now. And the posting has not been sporadic – it has been EVERY SINGLE DAY (except for very few days when there’s been no posting).

THAT, for me, is truly astounding.

For ONE person to have THIS level of dedication, commitment and discipline, despite all sorts of constraints along the way – THAT to me is mind-boggling.

Yes, we guest posters have joined on the journey, and posted from time to time. (I’m saying this a bit hesitatingly given my own limited contribution in the last year). But, as Sudhirji pointed out in a recent post, Atul’s posts are 3 times more than all our guest posts put together. That shows the sheer weight-lifting he does.

And mind you, this is just the number of posts. There’s so much more on the blog- the various statistics, by movie, by year, by artiste and so on. And anniversary dates. Atul has truly built a repository for the ages.

That brings me to my next point.

The repository.

It is not that songs aren’t available on the net. Of course they are. There are songs all over the place.

But this blog is different. It doesn’t treat a song as just a song. There’s a narrative about it, a background wherever possible. About the film, the artistes involved. And Atul is a stickler for accuracy, so he does his level best to get the facts and lyrics 100% accurate. It’s not easy with some old songs where the audio itself isn’t clear – but he makes a genuine effort. And that is because of the type of person he is – no shortcuts, no compromises.

All of this means that the reader gets as accurate a source as possible.

Then consider the songs themselves.

Some of these songs are rare songs, which were not even available earlier on the net. Some others were available, but with limited detail. When these songs were made available here, the blog tried to give the song, and its artistes, full respect.

This is what makes this blog a treasure house, a repository for generations.

While on this point, I think I must mention fellow travelers (we call them Atulites) who have contributed greatly to enriching this blog.

Atul will be the first person to admit that his own knowledge of songs and artistes would never have been enough to make the blog what it is today. This is nothing to be ashamed of. All of us know more about some songs and eras, and less about others.

But we thankfully have some “maharathis” (they know who they are, so I won’t name them 🙂 ) who, between them are an ocean of knowledge, and like walking encyclopedias. Their contribution, whether through posts or through comments, is truly outstanding. They have enriched this blog so much, taking it to a different level altogether.

So when we talk of team effort, this is a perfect example of it.

This brings me to my next point of awe.

If this blog had been a commercial venture, I can understand a business posting songs every day, to maximize its views, and earn revenue as a result, through advertising or other means.

But Atul has been doing this as a labour of love. It started as that, in 2008 – and continues to this day with the same intent.

So a labour of love, posting songs every single day, for 129 months at a stretch, to the level of detail and accuracy that this blog has – just pause for a moment to let that sink in.

Pause.

So while we celebrate the 15000 milestone, I request everyone to try to appreciate the true significance of it.

It’s not just the number – it’s the weight of the love and effort that has gone into it. It’s like 15000 kg of love and effort.

Along the way, this blog has done something else too. Possibly unintended initially, but as “Blog Ke Side-Effects” 🙂 , it has brought us Atulites together. Many of us have met each other, we now have a whatsapp group, all thanks to the blog, and Atul.

For me, personally, it has been a very enriching journey. I’ve been fortunate to have been involved right from day one – and along the way I’ve got to know some wonderful people with an amazing level of knowledge about HFM. I’ve got to know SO many songs only through this blog.

I really can’t thank Atul enough for all this.

So even if my participation has been very limited of late, this blog, and everyone associated with it, will always have a very special place in my heart.

And on this occasion, I can only wish that the journey goes on and on as we head towards the next target of 15921. 🙂

A line that comes to mind is “apni pyaar ki gaadi chalti rahe, apni pyaar ki gaadi chalti rahe”. 🙂

Now onto the song for today.

I must admit it wasn’t easy for me to decide on a song for this occasion.

For one, not only has the blog already got 15000 songs, but even the songs still to be posted are mostly relatively new songs ( which I barely know), or lesser-known songs of a much earlier era than mine.

This makes my task somewhat difficult.

A song I had in mind got cancelled out because it had already been posted, so I had to renew my efforts.

But one thing. I did have an idea of the type of song I wanted to post.

I wanted a fun, lively song. After all it is a celebratory occasion, so why not a fun song?

The lyrics didn’t really matter too much, as long as it was a jhakkaas song. 🙂

While looking for random songs, I tend to think of the 1970s as my first choice of decade. The main reason for this is, it is the decade I grew up in – and there’s always a chance I’ll come across a song that I heard in my childhood, and that still happens to not be posted. This has happened on a few occasions with me.

I’ll be the first to admit that the 1970s songs signaled the end of what is popularly known as the golden era of music. By the time the 1970s came along, audience tastes had changed. Not just in India, but around the world. The hippie culture had come in, there was a sense of wanting to break away from the established order of things.

It was only natural that India too would be affected by this trend. Films are a good reflection of society – and films of the 1970s are markedly different from those of an earlier era.

Music, as a very important component of Indian films, also reflected this.

And no one exemplified this better than RD Burman.

RD (or Pancham as he was popularly known) was a trend-setter. Hugely gifted, he experimented a lot, with instruments, tunes and sounds. The audience, already ripe for change, embraced RD’s style wholeheartedly and made him a huge success.

It was not that RD could not compose traditional tunes – he could, and he did. But he also made a deliberate effort to invent his own style, to distinguish himself from his legendary father’s style.

I personally think music, like everything else, evolves. We need to recognize that times keep changing – and music needs an audience too. So if the audience is changing, why wouldn’t music change too?

So, as Tennyson said, “the old order changeth, yielding place to new”.

The song I have picked today is from my schoolboy days. I had heard it a few times then – we used to sing it in school. But somehow I never heard it after that, and had even forgotten all about it.

Recently I came across it again – and was surprised to find it hadn’t been posted yet.

Initially I was thinking of keeping it for an RD occasion, seeing as it has such an RD stamp about it – but then I guess this occasion is as good as any.

If we are celebrating 15000 songs on this blog, and Atul is the architect of it AND is also a 1970s schoolboy, why not a song that he might have heard in those days too?

Dil to maane na….meri jaan, meri jaan aa aa aa aa

Vintage RD & Asha Bhosle.

Ever since this song has come back into my life, I’ve enjoyed listening to it.

I hope you enjoy it too. Jhakkaas enough for you? 🙂

Congratulations to all of us, travelers on this journey, for the 15000-milestone.

And a special thanks to Atul for bringing us all together.

Looking forward to milestone 15921. 🙂

Blog Day :

3921 Post No. : 14985 Movie Count :

4099

Today 13th April 2019 marks one hundred years of the most barbaric massacre of people under the British rule in India. On this day every year we also celebrate ‘Baisakhi’ all over India.

It was hundred years ago on 13th April 1919 that people gathered on the occasion of ‘Baisakhi’ at the ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ in Amritsar were fired upon ruthlessly by ‘bullets’ from the British Police and hundreds of them were killed brutally and many hundreds were injured.

This incident can never be forgotten as long as History of India and its freedom struggle will be discussed.

It was during last week that I came across this article on the centenary of this incident of ‘Jallianwala Bagh’.

I was aware that there is a movie on ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ and song of it was posted on the blog. I find ‘Jallianwala Bagh Ki Jyoti’ movie of 1953 on the blog. Since I do not remember any other movie with this title, I thought this ‘1953’ movie was the only one. However, to my surprise I found that there was a movie titled ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ and that too was made in 1987.

When I searched for this movie and its song, I was more surprised to know that the music of this movie was composed by R.D. Burman. and its songs were written by Gulzar Saab. I was shocked that I was not aware of this movie. And to add more to our surprise (or my surprise) Gulzar had acted in this movie and some clips of this movie were available on internet. Though Gulzar Saab acted in this movie his name is not mentioned in the titles of this movie.

This movie is about the ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ massacre which took place hundred years back on this day 13th April in 1919 and how the great revolutionary Shahid Udham Singh take revenge of this incident by killing Governer O’Dwyer in London. And he was hanged by the Britishers thereafter and attained martyrdom.

Parishit Sahni played the role of Udham Singh in this movie.

“Jaliyanwala Bagh-1987’ or ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ (1987) was directed by Balraj Tah for ‘Vijayshri Pictures’ presented by Sanjay Khandelwal Film.

Balraj Tah was also the producer of this movie.

It had Vinod Khanna, Parikshit Sahni, Shabana Azmi, Deepti Naval, Om Shivpuri and Mark Freeman (as Governer).
They were supported by Ram Mohan, Burt Doily, J.N. Singh, Sudhir Thakker, Gurmail Singh, June Greshion.

Story of this movie was written by Balraj Tah. Editing was done by Lachhman Dass.
Screenplay and dialogues were written by Gulzar.

Gulzar also wrote the lyrics for the songs in this movie. He also acted in this movie, however in the title credits his name is not mentioned.

All songs in this movie were sung by Bhupinder Singh. While the music was composed by R.D. Burman.
I could not find the video of the songs of this movie.

The movie had two songs only (I can say that based on the online version of this movie available). First one is ‘Heer’ and the other one which are going to listen today. The today’s song plays at four times in the movie.
First time when Vinod Khanna and Parikshit Sahni are leading the ‘procession’ to assemble in the ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ where we can also see Deepti Naval and many others.
The second version is the sad version and ‘mukhda’ only when Amar (Vinod Khanna) succumbs to the injuries during the firing by British Police.
Few lines of the same song are again repeated when Udham Singh, preparing for O’Dwyer’s assassination remembers his friend Amar. And forth time the song is played with first stanza in the background after Udham Singh (Parikshit Sahni) is hanged by the Britishers and Deepti Naval (widow of Amar-Vinod Khanna) is shown paying tributes at the modern-day ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ memorial.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.01.1987.

Let us pay our tributes to all those martyrs and listen to this song …

Blog Day : 3912 Post No. : 14970

Hullo to Atuldom

Today’s song/ post is to wish a Doe-eyed beauty on her birthday. At the when she was a busy movie star – starring in Bengali and Hindi movies – I had no clue about who she was, where she was from etc, and I didn’t care to find as at that stage in my life I was more of a watcher and not researcher. I have started trying to find things about the people who I used to like back then only now and I am amazed by the things I read and see.

So, today’s Bengali beauty was a convent school teacher to start of, who also tried her hand at modelling, participated in the Femina Miss India contest of 1971 and was judged Miss India World 1971. She went on to represent India at the Miss World 1971 and Queen of the Pacific pageant held in Australia where she was 1st runner-up. She also happens to be Anitha Guha’s niece. I am talking of the beautiful Prema Narayan- who made a name for herself playing Dhanno in the Uttam Kumar -Sharmila Tagore starrer “Amanush”. She was mostly cast as a dancer/ vamp or supporting roles with a western touch to her character. We remember her in songs of “Armaan”. “Ponga Pandit” etc as a person whose eyes are full of mischief.

“Barsaat Ki EkRaat” was a Shakti Samanta produced and directed 1981 release. It starred Amitabh Bachchan, Rakhee, Utpal Dutt, Amjad Khan, Abhi Bhattacharya, Prema Narayan, Sujit Kumar, AsitSen etc. Music was by R. D. Burman& Anand Bakshi was the lyricist. Songs were in the voices of Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle. This is the 3rd song from the movie on our blog. The first two were posted in October 2009. Here is this “in the villain’s den” “disguise song” (please don’t recognise Amitabh Bachchan) with Prema Narayan and chorus trying to distract Amjad Khan so that sneak into Amjad’s den; probably looking for someone. (can’t remember need to see the movie again for that)

Wishing Prema Narayan good health and good times on her birthday today (4 april 2019).

Editor’s note: This song is the one thousandth song of Anand Bakshi is the blog. It is easily the most low key thousandth song post for an artist in the blog. Anand Bakshi becomes the seventh artist and third lyricist to complete 1000 songs in the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 17
————————————————

‘Joshila-1973’ is another movie which I remember to have watched around end of seventies. It was screened during the weekly screening of movies at our ‘colony club’ where we stayed at that time. I never got a chance to watch it again. However, its heart touching song ‘Kiska rasta dekhe ai dil ai saudaayi’ became a permanent memory associated with this movie. This also became to be the most popular and famous song from this movie. Very aptly this movie was launched on this blog with this Kishore Kumar song on 15.03.2009.

Couple of other songs from this movie like ‘Dil mein jo baaten hai aao chalo ham keh den ’ and ‘Kuchh bhi kar lo ik din tumko ’ were also good and they were frequently heard on radio. Having the typical RD touch, they were also heard frequently on radio and loudspeakers.

However, none of the songs from this movie could make it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala -1973’.

All the songs of this movie were written by Sahir Ludhianvi. But at that time, I was not a fan of Sahir Saab and had not read or known much about him. And it is natural for anybody given the age at that time not to bother about other things except listening the songs.

Coming back to our ‘blog ten-year challenge’ let us go through the list of movies of which the songs were represented ten years back on 15.03.2009;

‘Shareef Badmaash-1973’
‘Saawan Ko Aane Do-1979’
‘Joshila-1973’
‘Kashmir Ki Kali-1964’
‘Manzil-1960’
‘Dil Tera Deewaana-1962’

All the above movies except ‘Joshila-1973’ have attained ‘Yippeee’ed status (all songs covered status) on the blog.

That brings us to the today’s movie, a song from which we are going to listen …

‘Joshilaa-1973’ or ‘Joshila’ was directed by Yash Chopra for ‘Trimurti Films Pvt Ltd’. It was produced by Gulshan Rai.

It had Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Pran, Bindu, Madan Puri, Manmohan Krishna, Padma Khanna, Sulochana, Iftekhar, Sudhir, Hercules, Master Satyajit, I.S. Johar, Vikas Anand, Jagdish Raj, S.N. Bannerjee, Chandu Allahabadi, Praveen Kumar, Uma Khosla, Ramlal, Shamlal, Uma Dutt and Nazeer. Rakhi and Mahendra Sandhu had a special appearance in this movie.
And Roopesh Kumar, A.K. Hangal, Sheetal, Ashu and Laxmichhaya in guest appearance.

Story of this movie was written by Gulshan Nanda and screenplay was written by C.J. Pavri and Akhtar Mirza. Diagloues of this movie were written by Akhtar-Ul-Iman. Editing of this movie was done by Pran Mehra.

This movie was passed by censor board on 26.09.1973.

This movie had total eight songs. So far five songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. The other two songs posted (from the three I mentioned above) are ‘Kaanp rahi main ’ and ‘Sona Rupa laayo re ’. The song being posted today is the sixth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Also, I was under the impression that the song ‘sharma nan yoon ghabra na yoon’ was already covered, but that remains to be covered.

However, for today’s post I have selected a ‘lesser heard’ song from this movie. (Even I don’t remember to have heard it before preparing of this post).

As mentioned above all songs of this movie were penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and music was composed by R.D. Burman. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar gave their voices to the songs in this movie. As per HFGK track listing of this movie Dev Anand’s voice is credited in one song.

Lata had two solos and one duet, Asha Bhonsle three solos (including one with Dev Anand’s dialogues) and one duet, and Kishore Kumar having one solo and two duet songs.

I guess that the today’s song and one more Lata solo were excluded* from the movie and hence their video seem to be unavailable. (I request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this.)
*(though HFGK doesn’t have any note about this)

Let us now listen to today’s song. After repeat listening, we may find ourselves humming the other RD gem ‘khaali haath shaam aayi hai’ 🙂 as well. (that is the magic of music or ragas (if I am not wrong 🙂 )

Song-Jo baat ishaaron mein kahi (Josheela)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-R D Burman

Tum nahin samjhe
Laa laa laa laa

हो ओ हो ओ
जो बात इशारों में कही
तुम नहीं समझे
हमने तो हज़ारों में कही
तुम नहीं समझे
तुम नहीं समझे ऐ
तुम नहीं समझे
जो बात इशारों में कही
तुम नहीं समझे
हमने तो हज़ारों में कही
तुम नहीं समझे

हमने ये चाहा था
क़दमों में बस रहते
ओ लेकिन हम ये हसरत
अपने मुंह से कैसे कहते
हमने ये चाहा था
क़दमों में बस रहते
हो ओ लेकिन हम ये हसरत
अपने मुंह से कैसे कहते
साँसों कि पुकारों में कही
तुम नहीं समझे ए
जो बात इशारों में कही
तुम नहीं समझे
हमने तो हज़ारों में कही
तुम नहीं ई समझे

ओ ओ हमने नींदें हारी
तुमने चाहत जीती
हो ओ भीगी रुत में
तपते दिल पर
तुम बिन जो जो बीती ई ई
हमने ए नींदें हारी
तुमने चाहत जीती
हो ओ भीगी रुत में
तपते दिल पर
तुम बिन जो जो बीती ई ई

अश्कों कि फुहारों में कही
तुम नहीं समझे
जो बात इशारों में कही
तुम नहीं समझे
हमने तो हज़ारों में कही ई
तुम नहीं ई समझे
ला ला ला ला
हं हं हं हं
हं हं हं हं
हं हं हं हं
