Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is heavily inspired by this song. This 1973 song which was sung by Kishore Kumar had Dharmendra trying to pacify his upset love Rekha. He resorted to all kinds of buffoonery to get a smile on her face and also get her to admit her love for him

In today’s song Kishore Kumar’s son Amit Kumar is the voice for Dharmendra’s son Sunny Deol. Sunny is running behind a ‘roothhi’ Meenakshi Seshadri and trying to get her to re-admit her love. So, the situation is like this. Just before this song, Sunny -who is a boxer for his college- has been reprimanded by his coach (Viju Khote) for day-dreaming about Meenakshi. Consequently, he refuses to acknowledge when she comes to meet him at his coaching camp. Later, when Sunny goes to meet her at a cafe, she pays him back in the same coin and also gathers public support citing that he is eve-teasing her. Now, it is the duty of our naayak to ‘manao’ a ‘roothhi’ naayikaa.

Hence this song which is written by Anjaan and composed by Bappi Lahiri. As I have said in the previous paragraph the male voice is Amit Kumar’s and S. Janaki sings for Meenakshi Seshadri. This marks the debut of “Ghayal” (as written in the titles of the movie). This 1990 movie starred Raj Babbar and Moushumi Chatterjee as Sunny’s bhaiyya and bhabhi. Amrish Puri played Balwant Rai (the villain) with Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Om Puri, Ashalata, Shafi Inamdar, Annu Kapoor etc in supporting roles. There were a few actors like Shabbir Khan, Sudesh Berry and Mitwa who played Sunny’s support in his mission to expose the wrong-doings of the big-time businessman Balwant Rai. Disco Shanti had a dance number too.

I am writing this post to wish the ‘dhai kilo ke haath’ wala, hand-pump ookhadnewala (uprooting a hand-pump), strong dialogue delivery wala, son of Dharmendra and Prakash Kaur- Ajay Singh Deol a.k.a Sunny Deol- on his birthday today. . It is apparent from his recent movies that he is a huge fan of his father. He has acted in three editions of a movie whose title was inspired by a famous song of his father from the ’70s- the Yamla Pagla Deewana series. He also chose another of his father’s song from the ’70s to use as a title for a movie that he directed to launch his son Karan in Bollywood- Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. Additionally he has acted with his father in ‘Sultanat’, ‘Apne’ and a few more.
Happy birthday Sunny Deol.

In Hindi film industry, there have been many ‘rags to riches’ stories since its inceptions. There were instances where ‘rags to riches’ went back to their ‘rags’ status because they could not prudently handle their wealth and the fame. On the other hand, there are instances who could retain their rich status thanks to their dedication to work as well as prudent financial planning. One of them was Chandrashekar Narvekar, who is known in Hindi film industry as N. Chandra (born 04/04/1952).

N Chandra was born and brought up in a lower middle class family in the midst of mill workers in Worli Naka. The working class had their chawls and hutments at the foot of Worli Hills while the affluent class of the society lived on the top of the hills. So, he had closely seen the economic disparity between the rich and the poor.

After completion of his high-school, N Chandra joined the Film Centre at Tardeo in the film editing division where his father was employed. He learnt the nuances of film editing. In 1971, he started as clapper boy for Gulzar’s ‘Mere Apne’ (1971) and became one of Gulzar’s assistant directors in ‘Parichay’ (1972), ‘Koshish’ (1972), ‘Achanak’ (1973), Aandhi’ (1975), ‘Khushboo’ (1975) and ‘Mausam’ (1975). Chandrashekhar Narvekar changed his name to N Chandra when he became the associate director to Bapu in ‘Bezubaan’ (1982) and ‘Woh 7 Din’ (1983) for which he was also a full-pledged Editor of these two films.

While working for ‘Woh 7 Din’ (1983), N Chandra got the inspiration to independently direct a Hindi film. He co-produced and directed his debut film ‘Ankush’ (1986) with non-star actors, most of whom were from Marathi and Gujarati stages. The story of the film was based on what N Chandra had witnessed during his younger days in Worli Naka after a prolonged mill workers strike. At that time, Worli-Lower Parel areas of Mumbai had the highest concentrations of cotton mills. The prolonged strike led to the closure of mills permanently, creating unemployment among the youth and the social unrest.

‘Ankush’ (1986) grossed over 3 crores on the box office on a budget of Rs,12 lakhs, a part of which was raised by N Chandra by selling his personal belongings. The tremendous success of the film helped Nana Patekar in improving his career graph as an actor. For N Chandra, the film boosted his confidence that a good story based on the contemporary subject with a realistic approach in direction could make a film successful even with non-star actors. His next two films – ‘Pratighaat’ (1987) and ‘Tezaab’ (1988) completed a sort of a trilogy of films on social justice.

‘Pratighaat’ (1987) was the second film which N Chandra directed apart from writing the screen-play and editing the film. The film was produced by A Ramoji Rao and was a remake of a Telugu film ‘Pratighatana’ (1985) which was also remade in Malayalam as ‘Pakarathinu Pakaram’ (1986). Sujata Mehta, a prominent Gujarati stage actor who had become popular with her Hindi TV serials ‘Khandaan’ (1985) and ‘Shrikant’ (1986), made her debut in this film as a lead actor along with Arvind Kumar and Charan Raj. The other actors included Rohini Hattangadi, Ashok Saraf, Mohan Bhandari, Nana Patekar, Subbiraj, Usha Nadkarni, Savita Bajaj, Ravi Patwardhan, Anuradha Sawant etc. The film was released on March 17, 1987.

Even though, in the film, Sujata Mehta was paired with Arvind Kumar, it was Charan Raj who had a larger presence in the film in the role of a criminal, Kali Prasad. Charan Raj is a Kannada actor who mostly did the role of a villain in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi films. He has also produced, directed and composed music for some films.

The DVD of the film is available for on-line for viewing. However, the quality of the picture as well as sound is not of good quality. Hence, I have watched the film sporadically. The gist of the story of the film is as under:

Laxmi (Sujata Mehta) is married to Satya Prakash (Arvind Kumar) who is a practicing lawyer. Laxmi works as a scool teacher. In the town, there is a hardened criminal, Kali Prasad (Charan Raj) whose writ rules over the entire town as he has blessing from a local politician. He has bee arrested in the past but gets release on bail with the blessing of a local politician which is followed by Kali taking the revenge on the complainers or the policeman who arrested him, resulting in their deaths. One of the victims is an ex-constable (Nana Patekar) who has become insane after his wife is brutually killed by Kali.

Laxmi finds it odd that even her school is under the influence of Kali for his notorious activities. She seeks help from her college-mate, sub-inspector, Ajay Shrivastav (Mohan Bhandari). He tells Laxmi that there is no point in arresting him as no one would stand witness against him and he gets the bail.
Nonetheless, Ajay arrests him after which he gets the bail. In the broad daylight, Ajay is murdered by Kali and Laxmi has witnessed his murder. She is ready to stand witness against Kali in the police station. Kali takes revenge on Laxmi by striping her in the public and in front of her husband who is scared to rescue her.

Laxmi takes a vow that she would continue to fight against Kali for justice and she is helped by Durga (Rohni Hattangadi) whose husband was killed by Kali for lodging complaint against him in the police station. Local election is due and Kali has been selected as a candidate. Laxmi stands in the elections against Kali. Kali’s hooligans create a lot of problem for Laxmi in her election campaign. Kali wins the election by booth capturing.

During the election victory celebration, Laxmi reaches on the stage and congratulate him on his election victory. She has brought a real axe which was the election symbol of Kali and hacks him to death in front of a large crowd. The film ends with police arriving on the scene and arresting Laxmi who sarcastically tells the Inspector that she is happy that he is doing his duties which he failed to do so while Kali was on a killing spree in the town.

‘Pratighaat’ (1987) made with non-star cast was a runway success at the box office front. The film reviews highly praised the performance of Sujata Mehta and Charan Raj.

The film had four songs all written and composed by Ravindra Jain. I am presenting the first song, ‘tere sar pe mere pyaar kaa farz hai’ from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is rendered by S P Balasubrahmanyam and S Janaki.

With this song, the film, ‘Pratighaat’ (1987) makes its debut on the Blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Last year, this post of mine spoke of “Sholay” inspired movies. Today’s song is from another “Sholay” inspired movie.

“Aandhi Toofan” that released in 1985 was directed by B. Subhash and produced by Pahlaj Nihalani. It had a cast of Hema Malini, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Kajal Kiran, Shatrughan Sinha, Mithun Chakravarthy, Shashi Kapoor (if I remember right, his was a special appearance), Danny, and Raj Kiran, Mac Mohan, Mazhar Khan, Tej Sapru, Sudhir etc. etc.

The cast of this movie has two actors who were part of the Hindi film industry since 1948:- (1) Sajjan who played Hema Malini’s father in “Johnny Mera Naam” was her servant in this one. (2) Raj Mehra who has played senior characters in many movies up till 1993 was Hema’s father in this.

The story was very very simple. Shashi Kapoor, a cop, arrests Balvir (Danny) who in turn wrecks havoc and kills the cop’s family. He then captures the cop who has gone on his trail, ties him up and when the new-bride goes to try and save him Balvir rapes her brutally in addition to killing the cop. The widowed wife (Hema) takes it on herself to seek revenge. She seeks help of two men Ballu (Mithun) and Raghu (Shatru) in this mission. The story is that simple.

I was reminded of today’s because of Prakashchandraji’s comment on this post. Exactly a year back I had a posted for “Gaana Kogile” (singing cuckoo in Kannada) or Isaikkuyil (as in Tamil for cuckoo) or the “Nightingale of South India’s” 82nd birthday. It is a year already and here we are wishing S. Janaki or Janakiamma, as her South Indian fans & film folks call her, on her next birthday. Here is wishing her health and happiness.

The song is a stage dance. We have Hema Malini performing almost like the Shiv-Taandav with flashbacks of the wedding and happenings that followed it. The song was written by Anjaan and Bappi Lahiri is the music director.

Hullo Atuldom

This is a post to wish Suyash Pandey on his 58th birthday (DoB 25 September 1962). His mother was a physician and a personal dietitian to Rekha in the ’80s. His father was in the team of surgeons who performed the first ever heart transplant in India at Mumbai’s KEM Hospital in the 70s. Suyash Pandey’s daughter is also in movies and she made her debut in 2019.

I am talking of the smart, tall and lively actor who is popular as Chunky Pandey (his daughter is Ananya Pandey). He made his debut in 1987 in the Shibu Mitra directed multi-starrer “Aag Hi Aag” playing Moushumi Chatterjee and Dharmendra’s son. That movie was produced by Pahlaj Nihalani. Neelam Kothari was his love-interest in that movie. Chunky’s “Paap Ki Duniya” (1988) was his second with producer Nihalani and director Shibu Mitra. This was also a multi-starrer. It also had Neelam as the female lead. Only difference was, here Neelam was in love with Sunny Deol’s character.

I remember seeing the movie at the time of its release, of course with my all-time moving-seeing companion ‘my dad’. After sitting through the movie, which he enjoyed thoroughly, he said that the story is same as Raj Kapoor’s “Awaara”. That is, the son of an honest cop (Pran) is kidnapped by a notorious criminal (Danny), and is brought up to be a professional thief and criminal (Sunny Deol). The movie has enough twists and turns because of which the criminal’s son (Chunky) is brought up by the cop and he becomes a cop, hot on the heels of the criminals Danny and Sunny. And then everyone finds out their blood-relatives and we have a happy ‘the end’ and Inspector Vijay (Chunky) is happy to see Ashok alias Suraj (Sunny) marrying Aarthi (Neelam).

Chunky is one actor who was mostly seen in multi-starrers and was nominated for the best supporting actor award for his role in “Tezaab”, where he played Anil Kapoor’s friend Baban, who helps Anil (Munna) find Mohini (Madhuri) when Lotiya Pathan (Kiran Kumar) kidnaps her.
But IMHO he was best, playing comic characters – his “Aankhen” with Govinda is the best case to prove my point. Of course, his career took a slight beating when the Khan’s appeared on the Bollywood firmament but he has managed to find a footing in movies of the new millennium and is seen doing varied characters which are not necessarily comedy or romantic and also not the typical character actor type roles.
He was a decent dancer and today’s song is proof of that. It is from “Paap Ki Duniya” which is written by Anjaan and Bappi Lahiri is the music director. S. Janaki and Kishore Kumar are the playback. The song was decently popular in those days when the movie released and is based on some Marathi folk song. I also feel that there may be a Marathi original to this song.

As I was seeing the video (after years) a few things struck me:-
(1) the Marathi saris that Neelam wears are the same colors as the dresses preceding them.
(2) Bappi Lahiri had a field day composing the interlude music which has both western and folk beats.
(3) The choreographer must have enjoyed composing the dance as both the artists were decent dancers. By the way, this song was Inspector Vijay’s fantasy.
A very Happy Birthday to Chunky who has a knack of cracking up at jokes of which he is often the target.

Hindi Songs in Tamil Films – 1
———————————————–

Hullo Atuldom

There are popular songs which have stayed with us from the first time we heard them. And we have some expectations from them. The song that Atulji posted yesterday is an example. When he heard the song he thought that the song was the handiwork of Anu Malik- David Dhawan- Govinda- Karisma Kapoor; he was right on two counts, only got the lead pair wrong. Similarly I have a song in my head which I thought was a Kishore Kumar-Asha Bhonsle duet. On referring various online sites I came to realize my mistake.

Another thing which I have come to realize is that all those, who we were fans of as youngsters, are all past 60 or 70. Today’s celebrity is in the 80 year old age bracket.

There are singers who are legends and legends who are well known but don’t come readily into ones thoughts. Today is one such legend’s birthday. S Janaki.

She was born on 23rd April 1938 in Guntur Andhra Pradesh. She has had basic training in singing but no formal training in classical music. But she is excellent in voice modulation -she can sing in a voice that will suit the age of the character. She can converse fluently in Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil and Hindi. Like most singers associated with film music she has the distinction of singing in 17 languages and a few non-Indian languages like German, Japanese, English and a few more.

Starting in 1957 her career has spanned 6 decades and her association with South Indian stalwarts like SP Balasubramanyam, K. J. Yesudas, P.B. Sreenivas, Dr. Rajkumar etc is most talked about. She has sung under the baton of all the major music composers of India. She had announced her retirement from singing for films and stage performances in 2016 but under pressure from the film fraternity she made a comeback in 2018 for a Tamil film.

I don’t know which was her first song in Hindi movies but Bappi Lahiri was impressed by a Hindi song that she had sung for a Tamil movie and decided to introduce her to Bollywood. The song which I was going to present with this post was one of the many that she sang under Bappida’s baton with Kishore Kumar. That is the song I mentioned at the beginning of this post “Main tera tota, tu meri maina” I had initially thought of this happy-go-lucky song for today but midway through the post I thought we should instead listen to the song which impressed Bappida.

With this song I also have achieved one more objective- a few months back Guruji, our very own Arunkumarji had suggested; rather asked why I was not looking for Hindi songs in non-Bollywood movies. This was around the time Sadanandji had started his series on “Hindi Songs in Bangla movies”. Promptly I also drew up a list of Malayalam movies which I knew had Hindi songs, and I was waiting for appropriate dates for sending these songs. I must admit that today’s song was not on that list as I didn’t know of its existence.

The movie to which this song belongs is “Nandu” (meaning Crab, not a person’s name) that released in 1981. It is a story of a Tamil boy who is brought up in North India, comes to Chennai (Madras back then), settles into a job, takes a room on rent, falls in love with one of the girl tenants of the house and has the landlord’s daughter falling in love with him. (Got it from wikipedia, if there are knowledgeable people in the followers please give corrections).

The movie had songs written by Gangai Amaran, Madhukkur Kannan and P B Srinivas. Ilayaraja was the music director. Today’s song is in the voices of Bhupinder Singh and S Janaki. This song was written by P.B. Srinivas and in the video of the song I can only recognize Kutty Padmini (one of the girls), Venniradai Moorthy (the person who urges the boy to sing), and Senthamarai (the man sitting with the boy).

The boy has just said that he can’t sing in Tamil as he is ignorant of poetry in that language (reminds me of how I was 30 years back, not much different now) so Moorthy asks him to sing in the language he is comfortable in. Going by the actors list available on wiki that should be Suresh and the girl who sings along is Aswini.

Wishing Janakiamma, as she is addressed by her fans, a happy and healthy life on her birthday today. Thank you for the enormous stock of songs that you have given us.

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.

Missing Films of 1960s – 66
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Nightingale of the South – Janakiamma turns 80 today – a grand and a fabulous milestone in of itself. Hearty greetings and best wishes for a very Happy Birthday to her.

Within those eighty years, there lies a sustained joyful journey of musical accomplishments that has lasted for six decades. Last year (2017), she announced her retirement from active singing career – hanging up the microphone after having sung a phenomenal number of songs ( ~ 48,000 by some estimates) in almost 20 different languages.

Sistla Shreerammoorthy Janaki was born this day in 1938 in the village of Pallapatla in Guntur district in what used be part of the Madras Presidency during the British rule. Now, her birthplace lies in the state of Andhra Pradesh. Her musical journey starts very early – at the young age of three, when she started her training under Sree Paidiswamy. A knowledgeable teacher, Sree Paidiswamy strengthened her musical talents and nurtured her interests over the childhood years. When she was in her late teens, her uncle and mentor, Dr. Chandrashekar, advised her to move to Madras (now Chennai) and facilitated her association with the AVM Studios. In 1957, AVM’s music director T. Chalapati Rao, offered Janaki her first break to sing in a Tamil film ‘Vidhiyin Vilayattu’. The Telugu film ‘MLA’ was her second assignment, in which she also acted.

From this first stepping stone, the story of her career is a rising graph, being very soon acknowledged as one of the top playback singers in the film industries of the South. Over the decades, she has worked with almost all the mainstream music directors and has long working relationships with the likes of Illyaraja, GK Venkatesh, MS Vishwanathan, KV Mahadevan, V Kumar, Rajan Nagendra and Shankar Ganesh, amongst many others.

Through the decades of 1960s, 70s and onwards, the list of her popular songs, and the list of awards and honors, is too copious to be covered in a single post. She has won the top National Award for the best female playback singer four times. She was honored with the Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award in 1997. And as stated, the list of other regional honors and awards is simply too long.

As I checked through the Geet Kosh, I find that from 1960 to 1980, her name is listed against 38 songs in Hindi films. Of course she continued to sing for Hindi films after 1980 also, just that I am not able to present those numbers.

For today’s celebratory honors, I present this wonderful melody from the 1964 film ‘Jhanda Ooncha Rahe Hamaara’. Not much information is available about the film. The production company is Movie Mandir of Bombay. Names of producer, director and cast of actors, are not available. Geet Kosh has listing of four songs, with the indication that there might be more. The name of the lyricist is indicated as Shrivas, and the music directors are Gandharva-Ghantashala.

Regarding the lyrics, one may find that the words are occasionally set somewhat awkwardly, almost as if forcing them together in a pattern. With some hind sight about songs from Hindi films that were remakes of, or dubbed from South Indian films, I can say that I have seen this pattern recur in some other Hindi films also. The thing is that the producers would try to retain the music of the songs, because they were popular in their original settings. So, in the Hindi remakes or dubbed versions, they would get the lyrics re-written in Hindi, force fitting them to the tune of the original regional language song. Another sampler is the songs of film ‘Baghdad’ of 1961.

On our blog, we have five songs sung by Janakiamma. Four of these are from the decade of 1980s and one is from a film from 1960. Just underscoring what I stated earlier, that she has been active in the Hindi film industry in the later decades also.

With this song, the film ‘Jhanda Ooncha Rahe Hamaara’ makes its debut on our blog today.

And once again, Happy Birthday greetings to Janakiamma, with lots of best wishes for good health and comfort, and wishing many happy returns of this celebration in her life.

Song – Waadi Ka Samaa  (Jhanda Ooncha Rahe Hamaara) (1964) Singer – S Janaki, Lyrics – Shrivas, MD – Gandharva-Ghantasaala

hullo to all Atulwaasis

May-June is the time when Indians or more importantly students and their parents are at their jitteriest. These are the months that the Indian education system has chosen to declare results of exams held in the months of February-March. Exams that puts the knowledge gained by students through the year to test. The students are required to revise everything learnt; in a year; in about a month of study leave (we as students had study leave of a month, I would love to know of the current scenario) and pour out everything in about 2½ to 3 hours; on to an answer sheet and then pray that what they have answered fetches them marks that are enough to get them further in life.

“Durga Maata”(1960) was produced and directed by B S Ranga for Vikram Productions, Madras. The movie had Rajkumar (south), Sowcar Janaki, Sandhya, Nagan, Narsomharaju, Bhatt etc in it. It appears to me that this movie was a remake/ dubbed version of a Sputh Indian movie where songs were created afresh for the Hindi version.
