Today’s song is from the blockbuster of the 90’s decade, ‘Hum aapke hain kaun’-94 (HAHK). The song ‘Didi tera devar deewana’ is sung by Lata Mangeshkar, S P Balasubramanyam and chorus. The Dev Kohli song is composed by Ramlaxman.

Many of the readers may find it difficult to digest that this comparatively ‘New’ song is discussed by a person who usually writes on ‘antiques ‘, i.e. songs from films of 30s and 40s. A solid jump of 50+ years ? Wonder pe Thunder ! You need not be surprised.

It is not that I do not like new films or songs, but nowadays everything about these films or songs is discussed on Print and TV media so much, that there is hardly anything left to write about. In any case, I have discussed earlier many songs from films of 80s,90s and 2000 and after that also. For example a song from film Lagaan-2001 was discussed,also from Zubeida-2000, Chameli ki shaadi-88 etc were discussed by me. In this connection, my favourite thinking is “Not all that was made before 1970 was good and not all that is made after 1970 is bad “.

These days I have lost patience to sit through 2 and more hours to watch a film, but I do have some new films listed as my favourites too. ( I saw these films in instalments,on TV). In recent times, few films impressed me no end. Film ‘Hum apke hai kaun'(hereafter called HAHK)-94 is one of them. I genuinely liked the film and few of its songs. The film came as a Puff of fresf air amidst the cluster of third rate meaningless movies. This Rajashri film totally fulfilled its purpose of clean entertainment. Though established in 1947, Rajashri films’ first noteworthy film was Aarti-62, followed by Dosti-64. From the 60s to the 80s, they gave many successful clean family entertaining films.

In 1988, Rajashri brought an era of Love stories that crossed class barriers. Film ‘Maine pyar kiya’-88 was a love story that touched hearts of youngsters. The film introduced a young Director Sooraj Barjatya ( grandson of the founder of RF) and also brought a star Salman Khan to make him a Superstar. It was his just second movie in career.

The same team came back in 5 years with HAHK and the film made all other hits like Sholey and Jai Santoshi Maa look like ‘also ran ‘! Few people know that HAHK is a remake of Rajashri’s own film “Nadiya ke paar-82”, starring Sachin, Sadhna Singh,Inder Thakur, Mitali etc etc. ( Inder Thakur died in Air India crash soon after.)

As is well known, the famous painter M F Hussain had crush on Madhuri. He saw film HAHK 85 times-as per a report in Indian Express (variously differing in other news portals from 60 to 90 times !). He then made a film ‘Gajgamini ‘-2000, with Madhuri. As expected, the film was a disaster at the Box Office. He also made lot many paintings of Madhuri ( she took payments per sitting).

As per a report in Indian Express, Madhuri got paid an amount of 2.75 crores for HAHK role of Nisha. It was also the first film to cross a collection of 1 Billion. With an investment of just 43 million, the film grossed 3.1 Billion in all. In 1994, mind you ! It was described as “the biggest Block Buster of Modern Era”. The film won Film Fare awards for Best Film, Best Director and of course best Heroine. It bagged the National award for Best popular film providing Wholesome Entertainment.

Why did the film become so captivating for the Indian audience ? The reasons could be…..

1. We like big business families with big houses with big lawns, so that Cricket can be played.
2. We love big weddings with all details,games,dance and music.
3. Nowadays, as a result of HAHK, no wedding is complete without Dance and music.
4. We love to see beautiful girls and handsome naughty boys falling in Love.
5. Comedy plots are a must.
6. Interesting characters like Anupam kher and Bindu.
7. New meaning for coughing…for young boys and girls.
8. Chhup Chhup ke Pyaar !
9. Active and clever Dog.
10. A Happy Ending !

Madhuri Dixit is my favourite actress ( but I am not MFHussain,please). Once I had a pleasure to get introduced to her when I went to a relative who stayed on the first floor of the same building where Madhuri stayed on second floor. She had come to them like an ordinary Marathi Mulgi in casual dress and still looked beautiful. Madhuri was born on 15-5-1967 and her first film was Abodh-84. She acted in 71 films. She came in limelight with her dance on song ‘Ek do teen…’from Tezaab-88. It was choreographed by Saroj khan. Same year she did a controversial scene with Vinod Khanna in film “Dayavaan”-88. In 1993, she created waves with her dance and song “Choli ke peeche..” in film Khalnayak. This too was choreographed by Saroj khan. Her last film released is ‘Total Dhamaal”-2018, directed by Inder Kumar.

Salman khan ( Abdul Rasheed Salim Salman khan) was born on 27-12-1965. Except for his first 2 films, I never liked him, as an actor and a human being. That of course is besides the point. His films mostly run full houses. Till today he acted in 106 films,his latest being Loveratri-2018. 2 films are slated for release in 2019 already.After success of these 2 initial films, Salman khan thought that the Filmy name of ‘ PREM ‘ was lucky for him. Subsequently, till 2015, he has used name PREM in 15 films. ( by the way, Amitabh Bachhan used the name VIJAY in 20 films till 2010, Jeetendra used it in 18 films and Mithun used it in 16 films.)

The film’s music played a major role in its success. The Music Director was Ramlaxman. Originally, it was a team of two brothers- elder was Surendra and the Younger was Vijay Patil. They used to be a part of professional orchestras, doing public shows all over Maharashtra. The popular and very successful Comedian of Marathi cinema- Dada Knodake was impressed with the duo and offered them his film, ” Pandu Havaldar-75″. It was Dada Kondake who gave them the name Ram Laxman since they were brothers. Film’s music became very popular and they gave music to Dada Kondke’s 11 films in a row, from 75 to 82. Their first break for Hindi films came in 1977 with Agent Vinod.

The elder brother expired immediately after their first film itself, due to Jaundice. Vijay decided to continue the name Ramlaxman. His first major break in Hindi came after 25 films. ‘ Maine Pyar Kiya”-89 was a Musical hit film. Within next 5 years and another 25 films he gave music to HAHK. This time he hit Gold. The success was unprecedented and long lasting. Till 2016, he gave music to 61 Hindi films, with 433 songs to his credit. Side by side, he was doing Marathi films also. From 1975 to 2011 i.e. in 36 years, he did 37 Marathi films.

The story of Hum Apke hai kaun-94 was–

It is a very simple plot. Mohnish Behl ( Rajesh Nath) and Salman ( Prem Nath)are brothers raised by their bachelor uncle Alok Nath ( Kailash Nath). Alok Nath arranges an engagement for Mohnish Behl with Renuka Shahane ( Pooja), daughter of his old friends Anupam Kher ( Prof. Sidharth Caudhary) and Reema Lagoo ( Mrs. Chaudhary). At the engagement, Salman meets Renuka’s younger sister Madhuri ( Nisha). Through the engagement, marriage, and then preparations for the birth of Renuka and Mohnish’s first child, Salman and Madhuri secretly flirt and become closer and closer. Finally, they reveal their love to Renuka who immediately approves and declares her plan to arrange their engagement (in her role as the oldest female in Salman’s family). But before she can tell anyone else, she dies after a tragic fall, leaving her son motherless. In an effort to provide a mother for the baby, Alok suggests to Anupam and Reema that Mohnish should marry Madhuri. Madhuri at first misunderstands them to mean Salman. However, even when she learns the truth, she decides not to say anything as it has brought so much joy to everyone to plan this wedding. Salman understands and accepts her decision. At the last moment, the truth is revealed, through a Dog Redo ( Tuffy ). The families understand immediately the purpose of their sacrifice and applaud them for making it, but insist that it is purposeless, Madhuri can move into the household as an aunt rather than a mother to this orphaned baby. Happy Ending with another wedding.

Today’s song ” Didi tera devar deewana” was easily the most popular song of the film ( though I like ” Paise de do joote le lo” more), out of the 14 songs the film had.This number (14) was much above the average number of film songs per film during a period from 1950 onwards- that is about 45 years. The film too was longer than average films. It was 3 hours and 43 minutes running time. Very few people know that this song was ‘ inspired’ ( read copied) from the song ” Saare Nabian”, sung by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The song tune was forced upon the composer by the producers and the director. The film’s album sold like hot cakes.

Let us now enjoy the teasing song, which is easily one of the longest songs spanning 7m and 38 seconds.

“Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin”(1979) was directed by Satyen Bose for Ruchi Films, Bombay. The movie had Arun Govil, Madhu Kapoor, Urmila Bhatt, Arvind Deshpande, Baby Komal, Om shivpuri, Gajanan Jaageerdaar, Amar Shan, Ram Mohan, Mushtaq Merchant, Javed Khan, Birbal, Surendra Kumar, Master Sandeep, C S Dube, Datta Bhatt, Rajan Kapoor, Arjun Bakshi, Vrajendra Mohan, Narbada Shankar, Pardesi, Mansaram, Mukund Bannerji, Radheshyam Diit, Taneja, Uma Khosla, Madhumita, Hansni Dutt, Veena Kapoor etc in it.

This “social” movie had five songs in it.

Today is the 60th birthday of Arun Govil, the hero of the movie who was barely 21 years old at that time. How time flies.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin”(1979). This song is sung by Shailendra Sinh and it is picturised on Arun Govil, with a lady, which I presume isv Madhu Kapoor also visible. Kulwant Jaani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ram Laman.

The song is one that I had heard during its days, though I was not aware about its details. when I paid attention to the lyrics I found this song quite a “negative” song where the hero is expressing his “bebasi” throughout the song. Quite a sissy kind of song, if you ask me. Heroes should be tough and determined, not “what can I do” kind of characters. 🙂 He should rather sing -“nahin main nahin dekh sakta tujhe rote huye”. 🙂

Anyway, here is wishing Arun Govil a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.

With this song, “Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin”(1979) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Mere bas mein agar kuchh hota (Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin)(1979) Shailendra Singh, Kulwant Jaani, Ram Laxman

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

mere bas mein agar kuchh hota
to aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta
mere bas mein agar kuchh hota
to aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta
saara dard akele sah leta
tujhe main gham koi uthhaane na deta

tu haal mera na jaane
main haal tera na jaanoon
kaisi hai ye majboori
main tum tak aaun kaise
lagta hai ab to aise
yug yug ki hai doori
main hoon bebas warna kisi ko
judaai ke ye kaante bichhaane na deta
mere bas mein agar kuchh hota to
aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta

hone do jo hai hona
hai pyaar hamaara sona
toota kaanch nahin hai
ye yaad rahe ae humdum
ek roz milenge hum tum
saanch ko aanch nahin hai
mujhe ye vishwaas na hota
to door tujhe nazron se jaane na deta
mere bas mein agar kuchh hota
to aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta
saara dard akele sah leta
tujhe main gham koi uthhaane na deta

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
———————————————————

मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता
मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता
सारा दर्द अकेले सह लेता
तुझे मैं ग़म कोई उठाने न देता

तू हाल मेरा न जाने
मैं हाल तेरा ना जानूं
कैसी है ये मजबूरी
मैं तुम तक आऊँ कैसे
लगता है अब तो ऐसे
युग युग कि है दूरी
मैं हूँ बेबस वरना किसी को
जुदाई के ये कांटे बिछाने न देता
मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता

होने दो जो है होना
है प्यार हमारा सोना
टूटा कांच नहीं है
ये याद रहे अये हमदम
एक रोज़ मिलेंगे हम तुम
सांच को आंच नहीं है
मुझे ये विश्वास न होता
तो दूर तुझे नज़रों से जाने न देता
मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता
सारा दर्द अकेले सह लेता
तुझे मैं ग़म कोई उठाने न देता

26th October is an important date for our blog. It has 2 birthdays. One is our very own Rajababu another is the female actor of the 90s Raveena Tandon. For me it is important as on this day my lil sister was born all those years ago. (I still feel of my sisters as little sisters even though the eldest child of my younger sis is in her first year of college this year, and the twins of my other sister are in class 4).

I came across a nice number from ‘Police Public’ (1990) by chance when I happened to click here on a Lollywood number “Mein Jis Din Bhula Doon Tera Pyar Dil Se” penned by Masroor Anwar for Khushboo (1979). On that YouTube web-page, I also noticed the same mukhda under this ‘Police Public’ number.

Similar – or even identical – mukhdas are not all that rare; and Lollywood and Bollywood copying each other’s themes, tunes and lyrics was not unheard of in the yesteryears. But what struck me was almost identical lyrics – albeit in different settings and tunes.

Be it as it may be, ‘Police Public’, a Vijay Mehta production, was directed by Esmayeel Shroff. It has a crime-corruption busting theme with Raaj Kumar as a fearless senior C.B.I. inspector as its chief protagonist.

Hullo to all in atuldom.

Today 21st October is the birthday of the dancing diva HELEN. And it is not possible to let it pass by without a song to show our love for her.

But that is the most difficult task for us atulites. Why? Because we have covered so many of her famous songs that one has to sit down with pen and paper to make a list of those songs that are left. In that respect I envy the various radio channels and TV programmes which will show the same set of songs on every occasion. I suspect that they don’t know the existence of the lesser known songs.

“Kahe tose sajana, ye tohri sajaniya” is an incredibly romantic yet a touching number from “Maine Pyar Kiya” (1989). Directed by Sooraj Barjatya, it was one of the biggest hits of 1989 – and of the 1980s – earning “All-time Blockbuster” status at the Box Office. It starred Salman Khan (in his first lead role after his film debut an year earlier in a side role in Biwi Ho To Aisi) and Bhagyashree (making her debut).
