13/10/2020 – 33rd death anniversary of Kishore Kumar
——————————————————————————–

Today is that day when we all remember the phenomenal Kishore Kumar. I should have planned ahead, but could not do so. Firstly I am working on so many posts at once that it is becoming a blur what is done and what is not. Secondly, I was under the weather for the whole weekend, and antibiotics make me more blurred than anything else.

Well, a post is to be done so one must look for a song. There are scores of songs to choose from. I have thought of a song from “Kaaran”, but I found today that it is already posted. Next I thought of the song from Poonam(1981) “main hoon haseena khol darwazaa dil ka”, which is not posted, but it turned out to be Amit Kumar’s song. It is possible for me to confuse Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar songs, as both sing in the same style and have similar voices. For example for a long time I was under the impression that bade achche lagte hain from Baalika Badhu is Kishore Kumar singing.

Then I looked for songs in the year 1980, thinking how there were so many songs which Kishore Kumar sang with Mohammed Rafi sahab. There was a pattern there where songs of major film in 1979, 1980 and 1981,in movies like, Shaan, Abdulla, Dostana, Naseeb, Karz, The Burning Train, Jaani Dusham, Kaala paththar, Raajput, The Great Gambler, Aap ke deewane, Aap to aise na thhe, Aas Paas, Bulandi, Ham Paanch, Raam Balram, Swyamvar , Kaalia, Khuda Qasam, Deedar-e-Yaar etc. were divided among the two of them.

Not specifically looking for Rafi-Kishore song, almost decided on a background Kishore solo from “Apne Paraaye”, which is a sad song, with everyone crying (there are many characters including Shabana Azmi) except Amol Palekar, who is smiling in his inimitable way. This is a “afsardaa” or a despairing category song.

But I moved beyond this one too and have landed on a song from “Zabardast” (1985). I am glad to be listening and viewing this song. I have not seen this movie either, but it was a multi-starrer of a kind and four of those stars are present in this outdoor picnic song. What with school kids carrying colour full flags, school bus, Rajeev Kapoor and Rati Agnihotri with an umbrella as a prop, Bagpiper like music in the interlude, and two cars on Table land of Panchgani.

Give me such songs anytime, I prefer these type of songs to club, party or dance songs. The song starts with Rati Agnihotri and Rajeev Kapoor arguing on Table land, Sunny Deol and Jayaprada march in with the school kids carrying flags. Sunny Deol hands over the white flag to Rati Agnihotri as a peace offering and Rajeev Kapoor starts singing the song. The Umbrella prop is visible throughout.

Song is a solo by Kishore Kumar, entirely sung on screen by Rajeev Kapoor, who is trying to woo Rati Agnihotri. Sunny Deol and Jaya Prada are also present and looking on. A good, catchy and feel good song, composed by R. D. Burman and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

This movie is making its debut here with this song. Out of total 2709 songs recorded by Kishore Kumar 1209 are posted in the blog.
A tribute to the ‘harfanmaula’ on this Remembrance Day.

Tribute to S. P. Balasubramaniam
—————————————————

The great playback singer of south india left for heavenly abode after his month long illness and Covid – 19 related complications, which had him hospitalised since August. He is said to have recorded his last song on 5th August at Hyderabad. Some sources are reporting he has total 40000 songs to his credit. This calculates to more than two songs per day, in a 50 year career. The career spanning 5 decades and active career he was much revered and loved in the south India’s movie and music fan. The four primary languages of the south, namely Kannada, Telegu, Tamil and Malayalam have the major share of his songs.

When thinking of his songs, the first film that comes to mind is “Ek Duje Ke liye” (1981). When I looked up the songs of this film and found this info about how S. P. Balasubramaniam finally got to sing the songs of this film:
This was singer S.P. Balasubramaniam’s debut Hindi film. Music directors Laxmikant – Pyarelal were not keen on using him for the film since they had not worked with him before. Director K. Balachander convinced them that S.P. Balasubramaniam was the right choice since his imperfect diction would suit the role of South Indian man played by Kamal Haasan in the film.

When S.P. Balasubramaniam first met Laxmikant – Pyarelal for this film, the music director duo had asked him to sing a song. The singer first sang the title song of “Mere Mehboob” (1963) composed by Naushad. The composers then asked him to sing a simple song and he sang “Jaanewalo Zara Mud KeDekhoMujhe” (“Dosti”, 1964) composed by Laxmikant – Pyarelal themselves. According to S.P. Balasubramaniam, it was this song that convinced the composers of his abilities.

Tere Mere Beech Mein (Duet) – This duet with Lata Mangeshkar was the first song S.P. Balasubramaniam had recorded for this film. He spoke a few Tamil lines in this song including “Nee romba nallapaadarae” meaning “You sing very well”. He later said that he found the words ironical since they came from a newcomer like him and were addressed to the legendary Lata Mangeshkar. He was apparently so nervous during the recording that he had accidentally spilt tea on her saree. Understanding his plight, Lata had praised S.P. Balasubramaniam during the rehearsals in order to put him at ease.

These details finally made me decide that I want to post a song from this film. I found that only two song from this film is posted in the blog till date:
Mere jeewan saathi pyaar kiye jaa
Solah baras ki baali umar ko salaam

And this beautiful song which was all the rage in the 80’s is not yet posted, which has two solo versions. One is by Lata Mangeshkar, a happy solo and other is by SPB a sad, very sad solo. Lata version is beautifully shot in picturesque locales of Goa with Rati Agnihotri singing and Kamaal Haasan, not comprehending the hindi song, trying to understand where she is pointing in the other direction. The last scene of this song, with both Rati Agnihotri and Kamaal Haasan, standing with their backs to the rock outcroppings, looking out to the see from the vantage point, with the beach below and the mountains just beyond, was the picture perfect poster on the movie hoardings, even in theatre’s.

The SPB version is shot in a hotel room, where both Kamal Haasan and RatiAgnihotri find themselves in adjoining room. They have promised Rati’s mother that they will not contact and meet each other for a year, so cannot meet. How inane is that, if they met by accident and not by design, than it is divine intervention. But this was an opportunity to create an intense song situation, with Rati doing more histrionics, with a sea-shell:). In an earlier scene, Rati’s mother burns the photo of Kamaal Haasan. Rati, in a fit of inspiration to prove her true love, mixes the burnt carbon remains of the photograph with tea and drinks it. I think the mother was played by Shubha Khote.

The song also won the following awards :
1981 – National Film Awards – Best Male Playback Singer – Tere Mere Beech Mein (Male) – S.P. Balasubramaniam
1981 – Filmfare Awards – Best Lyricist – Tere Mere Beech Mein (Duet) – Anand Bakshi

So I am presenting a song, which won SPB a National Film Award for best playback singer in 1981, as a tribute on his passing away. Of course his memory will be forever alive through his numerous songs. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

Hullo Atuldom
December is filled with birthdays of superstars and super actors. We began the month remembering Dev Anand, birthdays of Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, & Dilip Kumar followed. Today is the 69th birthday of Rajnikanth, the darling of the masses in South India, he was also decently successful in Bollywood.

He is an actor who started out portraying negative characters and near-bit roles much like Shatrughan Sinha of Bollywood. He has worked his way up the ranks to superstardom and his best period began with “Billa” (1980) and he hasn’t left the hearts and minds of his fans- much like his inspiration- he has admitted many-a-times that he is a fan of Amitabh Bachchan. And after being cast in roles of antagonist from 1975-77 in Tamil and Telugu 1978 saw the release of “Shankar Salim Simon” which was a remake of Manmohan Desai’s “Amar Akbar Anthony”; this was followed by remakes of “Majboor”, “Trishul”, “Deewar”, “Namak Halal”, “Don” (Billa was its remake), “Lawaaris” etc and I seem to have seen most of these. I would love to hear the feelings he had when he got to act with his inspiration Big B in his debut Hindi movie- “Andha Kanoon” (incidentally this too was remade in Tamil but with Vijaykanth acting the role played by Rajni in the Hindi version). We had many Hindi movies in the 80s which were remakes of Rajni’s south Indian originals.
I
His super successful Tamil movie “Moondru Mugam” meaning three-faces was made as “John Jani Janardhan” in with Rati Agnihotri and Poonam Dhillon as female leads. It was the story of an honest police officer John Mendez (Rajnikanth as father) who lives a middle-class lifestyle with his wife, Cheryl (Poonam Dhillon), and a maidservant, Fatimabi (Dulari). John busts a gang that makes illicit liquor and holds them in a cell, bringing him into confrontation with their leader, Gajanand ‘Gajju’ (Kadar Khan), who goes to threaten John, but is himself arrested and sentenced. When he is acquitted, he decides to avenge his humiliation by entrapping John and killing him. Cheryl gives birth to twin sons and passes away. A rich childless couple, Brijmohan Gupta (Utpal Dutt) adopts one of the twins and names him Janardhan (Rajnikanth -son number 1), while the second is named Jani (Rajnikanth son number 2) and lives with Fatimabi. Twenty-five years later, Janardhan is an American-returned young man, in love with Madhu (Rati Agnihotri). On his birthday party he comes face to face with a man named Gopaldas (played by south actor Thyagarajan), and his entire personality changes as he is taken over by the vengeful spirit of John. Subsequently, Gopaldas is killed, and Janardhan is arrested and tried in Court. And then there is the usual climax when the brothers discover each other etc. (seen this movie a long time ago in Tamil not in Hindi)

Today on the occasion of Rajnikanth’s birthday a song from “John Jani Janardhan” which had Laxmi-Pyare’s music and Anand Bakshi’s lyrics. S P Balasubramaniam and S Janaki have given playback for this lively number which has Rati matching Rajnikanth’s colourful T-shirts with her lovely white dresses.

Rati who made her debut into Hindi movies with “Ek Duje Ke Liye” opposite Kamal Hasan in 1981 turned a year on 10th December. She was Rajnikanth’s co-star in many south Indian movies but I think this was the only time she acted with him in Hindi. Here is wishing her too a very (belated) Happy Birthday.

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

This post should have ideally appeared yesterday. But due to various reasons it remained unsent and the result is that we missed wishing a superstar who is first and foremost an actor; very versatile and untypecasted –much like the actor who we remembered on 6th November.

There have been songs and songs on the lives of courtesans or Tawaifs as they are called. And there have been many songs where a “tawaif” with a golden heart will fall in love with a sweet boy next door kind of hero. And it will take the hero the whole of the movie to realize that he also loves the “tawaif”. The only difference will be the route the movie will take to help the hero reach his enlightenment about his love for the lady in question.
