Hullo Atuldom

‘Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein’ (RHTDM – 2001) was produced by Vashu Bhagnani and directed by Gautam Vasudev Menon. It was either a remake or made along side Gautam Vasudev Menon’s Tamil ‘Minnale’. ‘Minnale’ released in February and RHTDM released in October 2001. Both the versions had R Madhavan play the lead, music was by Harris Jayaraj (I think both the movies were the composers’ debut in the respective languages).

RHTDM was the debut of, second runner-up Miss India 2000, Dia Mirza who had gone to be crowned Miss Asia Pacific 2000. Indian beauties Lara Dutta & Priyanka Chopra were that year’s Miss Universe & Miss World respectively.

‘Rehnaa Hai Terra Dil Mein’ (please note that the extra alphabets in the title may have something to do with numerology and that is how it appeared in the movie’s title card) had Saif Ali Khan as the other male protagonist along with Vrajesh Hirjee, Tannaz Irani (she was Tannaz Currim back then), Anupam Kher, Navin Nischol, etc in the cast. Sameer was the lyricist and Bombay Jayashree, Roop Kumar Rathod, Sonu Nigam, Kavitha Krishnamurthy, Shaan, Preeti – Pinky, Sukhvinder Singh, Shekhar Ravijani, Sunidhi Chauhan, Vasundhara Das and KK were the playback singers used.

The movie was the story of a love-struck man,  (unknowingly) stealing the identity of his former college foe, to pursue his lady-love and the eventual repercussions he has to face, when his cover is blown before he could come clean.

I had originally zeroed in to the songs of this movie to wish R Madhavan on his birthday which was on 1st of June. R Madhavan was born in Jamshedpur to South Indian parents and completed his graduation from Kolhapur. In college he was a leading NCC cadet and had the opportunity to go to England and get training in the Royal Air-Force, Royal Navy and British Army. I read somewhere that he had briefly toyed the idea of joining the armed forces too but missed the cut-off by a few months. A brief stint in modelling helped him gain a foothold in the entertainment industry via the television industry. I remember him playing Satish Shah’s son-in-law and Mandira Bedi’s husband in ‘Ghar Jamai’ in the ’90s. His first chance in Indian films came via Kannada movies.

Before I could complete the post in came the news of the untimely death of the KK aka Krishnakumar Kunnath after a stage performance in Kolkatta. He was only 53.

KK was born to South Indian parents (like Madhavan) in New Delhi. He was an alumnus of Kirori Mal College. He was the voice of the jingles in the ’90s before AR Rehman gave him a break in Tamil. His debut in Hindi films was the full throat song “Tadap Tadap Ke Is Dil Se Aah Nikalti Rahi” from the film ‘Ham Dil De Chuke Sanam’ (1999) under the baton of Ismail Darbar (the song is already present on our blog with a post by Nahmji).

Yesterday fellow-Atulite Satyajitji shared a short clip featuring hits of KK and I found most of them had been my favorites; of course without knowing who was singing those. I must also admit that I am as ignorant about the current lot of singers as I was about the singers of the Golden Era of Indian Music. Just as some songs are prophetic about the concerned writer, music director, singer etc. There is a song which KK sang “Hum Rahe Ya Na Rahe Kal” from the non film album ‘Pal’. It seems that he had sung this song on-stage on that fateful evening of 31st May.

For this post I present the song which I had originally chosen to wish Madhavan on his birthday on 1st June.

But now this song unfortunately also happens to be a tribute to KK.

सच कह रहा है दीवाना
दिल
दिल ना किसी से लगाना
झूठे हैं यार के वादे सारे
झूठी हैं प्यार की कसमें
मैंने हर लम्हा जिसे चाहा
जिसे पूजा
उसी ने यारो मेरा दिल तोड़ा
तोड़ा
तन्हा
तन्हा छोड़ा

सच कह रहा है दीवाना
दिल

मैंने हर लम्हा जिसे चाहा

इक दिन उसे भुला दूँगा मैं
उसके निशां मिटा दूँगा मैं
चाहूँगा ना मैं उस पत्थर को
जा उसे बता दे

ओ ओ

Hullo Atuldom

A song from a new movie (by the standards of this blog) for the listening pleasure of followers of this blog.

‘Hungama (The Ruckus)’ is a 2003 release – nearly 20 years old already –  that was produced by Venus records and tapes and directed by Priyadarshan. One of the many that Priyan (as his friends in the South address him as) remade from Malayalam hits. It was a remake of Priyans’ Malayalam ‘Poochakkoru Mookkuthi’ (meaning A Nose-ring for the Cat) which was itself a remake of the Telugu movie ‘Gopala Rao Gari Ammayi’ which had elements borrowed from the plot of Charles Dickens ‘The Strange Gentleman’.

‘Hungama’ had Rimi Sen, Akshay Khanna, Aftab Shivdasani as the youngsters and Paresh Rawal, Shoma Anand, Shakti Kapoor, Neena Kulkarni, Rajpal Yadav, Tiku Talsania, Upasna Singh, Sanjay Narvekar, Manoj Joshi, Razzaq Khan, etc. and Malayalam film actor Jagadish in a minuscule role of Paresh Rawal’s housekeeper. The movie had music by Nadeem Shravan for songs written by Sameer. Babul Supriyo, Shaan, Sadhana Sargam, Richa Sharma, Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan, Abhijeet, Sonu Nigam and Kumar Sanu were the playback singers used.

The movie revolved around the confusion caused by two characters having the same name. Both Shoma Anand and Rimi Sen are called ‘Anjali’. Then, the conning of Kachra Seth (Shakti Kapoor) by Anil Singh claiming to be Paresh Rawal’s son Munna Tiwari (Sanjay Narwekar) adds to more confusion. Plus, there is the usual love triangle which gives us romantic songs. But, for me, the highlight in the movie is where Shoma Anand doubts her husband (Paresh Rawal) of having a relation with Rimi Sen and Paresh Rawal doubting his wife as her character undergoes a change the minute she lands in their city-home. As if to add fuel to fire Akshay Khanna keeps visiting their house and asking for Anjali (meaning Rimi Sen) which Paresh construes as Anjali (Shoma Anand).

As can be seen from the above, Paresh Rawal was the main character in this movie, just as he was in many of Priyadarshan’s Hindi movies ‘Hera Pheri’, ‘Hulchul’, ‘Chup Chup Ke’, ‘Bhagam Bhag’ and a few more, all of which I have seen more than once. Today we are wishing this versatile actor on turning 67 (is he really that old, unbelievable).

Today’s song happens at a party thrown by Anjali (Shoma Anand) for her birthday where both Anjali (Rimi) and Akshay Khanna are uninvited guests. But the husband and wife feel that the other has invited their new ‘friend’ and fantasize the two dancing with their new-friend. Sadhana Sargam and Shaan are the singers who have been invited to entertain the people at the party. A very cute song which is nice on the ears.

Song – Chain Aapko Mila Mujhe Deewaangi Mili (Hungama) (2003) Singer – Shaan, Sadhna Sargam, Lyrics – Sameer, MD – Nadeem Shravan

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

ey hey hey hey
la la la la
ey hey hey hey
aa haa haa
hmmm hmmm hmmm
la la la la
la la la lalala lalala la

chain aap ko mila
mujhe deewaangi mili

manaaun to main isko kaise
ye dil deewaana hai na maane
bataaun to bhala main kaise
ye ishq kya hai ye na jaane
shaidaai main

tujhko nahin hai ye pata aa aa aa
jaam aapko mila
mujhe to berukhi mili
o ho hosh aapko mila
muhe to bekhudi mili
phir bhi pyaar
aap se hi karta hai dil

koi kisi pe jaan de de
koi kare hai bewafaai
ye faaslon ka dard kya hai
ye jaanti hai bas judaai
tujhse mili
jabse nazar
deewaani main ho gayi ee ee ee
neend aapko mili
mujhe to bebasi mili
aa haa haa hosh aapko mila
muhe to bekhudi mili
phir bhi pyaar
aap se hi karta hai dil
chain aap ko mila
mujhe deewaangi mili

chain aap ko mila
mujhe deewaangi mili
aa haa haahosh aapko mila
muhe to bekhudi mili

‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’ was directed by Sultan Ahmed for ‘Golden Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Tony Walker. It had Mumtaz, Sameer, Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Nadira, with Jayshree T., Malka, Randhir, Yunus Parvez, Master Ripple, Baby Deepali, Moolchand Kapoor, Master Ejaz and Chaman Puri and Johny Walker.

This movie was written by Mushtaq Jalili and editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 301.01.1973.

‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa’ had total five songs that were composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonlse and Sharda had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

The songs in this movie were penned by Shakeel Badayuni (who by the time of release of this movie had passed away on 20.04.1970). He wrote three songs for this movie and the two remaining songs were written by Indeevar.

Today 20th April’ 2022 is the fifty-second ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of Shakeel Badayuni (3 August 1916 – 20 April 1970).

As a tribute to him I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa’.

A per statistics on the blog Shakeel Badayuni had written lyrics for around 766 songs. Out of these 766 we have 644 songs covered on the blog.

I had not gone through these details earlier. I was under the impression that most of the songs written by Shakeel Saab had already been covered on the blog. But 122 songs pending is a big number. I wonder if all these remaining songs are available.

It would be interesting to go through the ‘filmography’ of Shakeel Badayuni to know the movies from which the songs are yet to be posted. (I hope to do it in the future as possible).

For today we have a song sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle which on screen is performed by Sameer (hope I am correct) and Mumtaz. Today’s song is a ‘chhed-chhaad & nok-jhonk’ type song.

Lyrics are by Shakeel Badayuni. And music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

None of the songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishan featured in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1973’. However, two songs composed by them one from ‘Aaj Ki Taazaa Kabhar-1974’ (mujhe meri biwi se bachaao) and one from ‘Chori Chori-1974’ (waastaa hi na jab rahaa tumse) appeared in the list of ’32 next rung songs’ of 1973 Binaca Geetamala.

Let us now listen to today’s song … and pay our tributes to Shakeel Badayuni …

Hullo Atuldom

March 7th sees Anupam Kher, the versatile actor, turn a year older. He has played characters beyond his calendar age in numerous films. He has played the archetypal villain with as much finesse as serious supporting roles. He has also tried playing characters which are comic but of course some of these have been over-the-top and mostly making faces, using odd hair-get-ups etc. would be used to create comic effect. But I think we can excuse this fine actor of these excesses as he used to balance them by doing roles as in “Daddy” (1989), Utsav (1984), Karma (1986), Rao Saheb (1985), Kaash (1987), Zevar etc.

He played Shahrukh Khan’s son-friendly father in a few movies, as also father to Salman Khan and other heroes of the 90s. But I have never been able to get over the fact that he played father to Anil Kapoor in one movie and grandfather in the next movie. Similarly, he has played friend, jija, father, grandfather etc to Rishi Kapoor. I can go on and on about the various actors with whom he played such characters. All of these just show the love this man has towards all things connected with films and movie making.

He turned producer in 2000 with “Bariwali” which was in Bengali and had his wife Kirron Kher play a lonely, sad, unfortunate, middle-aged woman. He directed ‘Om Jai Jagdish” in 2002. Additionally he has appeared in a few international television serials, and films. He has also been seen in Punjabi, Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam, Marathi films.

His brother Raju Kher is an actor as also his wife and her son (his step-son) Sikandar Kher are actors.

This was a song that I posted in 2020 on Anupamji’s birthday. There are so many choices available to go with today’s post. I have zeroed in on a song where we have Rishi Kapoor playing Anupam Kher’s ‘chela’ reminding us of Joy Mukherjee and I.S Johar in “Shaagird”.

This movie “Shreemaan Aashique” (1993) was directed by Deepak Anand and produced by Shakeel Noorani. The film starred Urmila Matondkar, Rishi Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Bindu, Reema Lagoo, Mehmood, Annu Kapoor etc. Music was by Nadeem-Shravan, Sameer and Noor Kaskar (never heard this name before) were the lyricists. I recently discovered that Anupam Kher has sung a few songs in movies and today’s song is one of them. The other voice in the song is Ahmed Mirza (never heard this name too).

I apologize to all the purists in subjecting them to this song, but we shall see the positive side that this actor didn’t mind making himself a buffoon too.
Wishing Anupam Kher health and happiness


Song-Abhi to main jawaan hoon (Shreeman Aashique)(1993) Singer-Ahmed Mirza, Anupam Kher, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Nadeem Shrawan

Hullo Atuldom

6th February 2022. Sad day for lovers of music. The news which all music fans didn’t want to hear came through a friend’s message on Whatapp. Our dear Sur Saraswati – Nightingale – Miracle of Nature – Swar Kokila (all such epithets fell right and square on her slender shoulders) is no more. She was a power house of talent that came in a small package. She was the face of Indian film music who rode the classical music vehicle with as much ease as light music. Bhajans rendered by her were what the nation woke up to for years and were the inspiration for singers of the later generation to try their hand at classical and devotional songs.

She was a fan of cricket for the longest time and Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt who was pouring his heart out on a TV channel said that she was ill yesterday or else she would have been the first to tweet a congratulatory message to the victorious Under-19 team for winning the World Cup. That is one thing that has amazed me about the Grand-Lady of Indian Film music. She took to Twitter, Facebook and other social media as if she was a person of the now-generation. She was very active on social media.

A cross section of Indians have been pouring their heart out and putting out tweets but one that struck me most was “We will miss you and hope the void left by you doesn’t fill”.

A journey which began in the 40s at the age of 13 has come to an end after giving voice to songs in close to 1884 films in Hindi and about 30 films in other languages. A person who sang for Shobana Samarth in 1949 and Kajol (Shobana Samarth’s grand daughter) in the 90s. A person who brought tears to the eyes of the then Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru with her rendition of “Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo“. A person who has given us songs for every mood is being bid farewell from this mortal world as I write this (those are the visuals playing on all the news channels). She has been draped in her trademark white saree with a simple border. She has been brought to Shivaji Park with full state honors and the nation is in two-day mourning for this Bharat Ratna.

Like she has said in her song “Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai” we have her voice with us forever. And the song playing at this point is “Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo“” with Lata Didi saying “Ab Hum To Safar Karte Hain’ —-prophetic.

For this post I was looking for one of her last Bollywood song. We have covered Lata Didi’s last released songs in the course of Atul ji’s series ‘Yearwise Review’. So, the song with this post is not the absolute last but one from the last decade of her journey in Bollywood.

It is from the 2005 release ‘Lucky’ which had the tagline ‘No Time for Love’. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Adnan Sami, written by Sameer and tuned by Adnan Sami.

Like she has sung

rahen naa rahen hum,
mehkaa karenge
ban ke kali,
ban ke sabaa,
baage wafaa mein

Her mehak will be with us forever

Alvida Lata Mangeshkar

Hullo Atuldom

A very Happy Republic Day to every Indian on this earth. It is 73 years since The Indian Constitution came into effect replacing the Government of India Act and turning the nation into a newly formed Republic.

Various videos have started doing rounds on the social media over the last few days, and the one that is shared the most is this one. This video has Cyrus Broacha, the theatre and television personality who excels in tongue-in-cheek satire, quiz a few youngsters about what they think of the national holidays- 15th August and 26sup>th January. I don’t know if I should feel sad about the replies that the respondents gave or feel ashamed of how little information we have passed on to the generation that followed ours – we being the generation that followed those who had worked towards independence for India and making it a Sovereign Democratic Republic. (I myself didn’t know answers to few of the questions).

Here I am reminded of this post by Peevesie where she has expressed her thoughts on National pride, patriotism, and the behaviour of the citizens when such national days approach. I am sure that the thoughts in there would open no-holds and no-age barred debates, and evoke sentimental responses all around.

I don’t want to continue the lament so I just came back to the spirit of this blog which is music.

Over the last few years we have had a few films which were based on Real achievements of this vast country of ours. Atulji has written some highly educative and informative posts for songs from these movies (one reading of these posts is not enough to understand the spirit behind these National achievements).

The posts are almost like an insiders’ view, as he works for one of the largest employers of the country, the Indian Railways which is instrumental in binding the country into one whole unit. The other large employer being the Armed Forces. These two organisations of the country work relentlessly 24/7 and salute to them.
These are the posts Shubh din aayo; dil mein Mars hai which speak of modern India’s achievements that should make very Indian proud (I don’t know if every Indian knows everything about India.)

Before beginning this post, I just went over the songs posted in the blog on the very first Republic day (for the blog) and found these

Song Posted at
Ye desh hai veer jawaanon ka (posted at 7.46 a.m.)
Mere desh ki dharti sona ugle (posted at 7.54 a.m.)
Dulhan chali o pahan chali (posted at 7.59 a.m.)
Hai pree jahaan ki reet sada (posted at 8.15 a.m.)
Abke baras (posted at 8.34 a.m.)
Chhodo kal ki baaten (posted at 8.47 a.m.)

As can be seen from above, there were six patriotic songs on that date, all posted well before 9 a.m. I am sure post this activity Atulji would have left for the official flag unfurling program at his work place.

Here I would like to mention that Flag Hoisting takes place on Independence day and Flag Unfurling for Republic Day. Also the main celebrations for the country happens in New Delhi -the national capital- where the Prime Minister hoists the National flag and addresses the nation on Independence day from the ramparts of the Red fort and The President unfurls the flag on Rajpath – the venue of the Republic Day parade. The President, being the Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces, presides over the Republic Day parade. The Republic Day celebrations begin with the Prime Minister paying homage (on behalf of a thankful nation) to the unknown soldiers, who laid down their lives for the country, at the memorial at India Gate. There is going to be a slight departure this year, as the Amar Jawan Jyoti -the eternal flame at the memorial – which was constructed after the 1971 Indo- Pak war and inaugurated on 26th January 1972 has been merged with the newer one at the National War Memorial on 21st January 2022.

Coming back to the songs that were posted on 26th January 2009, of the six songs posted one was from a Black and White movie (at the time of its release) “Naya Daur” having Ajit and Dilip Kumar in the song. The last song posted that day was from “Hum Hindustani” which had Sunil Dutt and we can also see some military and para-military force parades in the song. The other four songs were from Manoj Kumar starrers, each song showcasing a different aspect of patriotism. All the posts were short, crisp posts. (I must say that Atulji has become more vocal as the blog grew.)

These are my last two contributions to the blog on the occasion of Indian Republic day.

Song Date of posting
Mera mulk mera desh mera ye watan 26 January 2021
Vande Maatram 26 January 2020

Today we are having a song from Mukul S. Anand’s unfinished, unreleased 1997 movie “Dus”. The film began production in May 1997 and 40% shooting was completed by August. Songs from the movie were already released for public viewing on various music channels of satellite television. Unfortunately Mukul Anand (the director), died during the movie’s shoot on location in Utah, and the movie was shelved. The co-producer Nitin Manmohan released another movie with the same title but unrelated subject in 2005. Mukul Anand’s ‘Dus’ had a cast of Sanjay Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Salman Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Raveena Tandon etc. It had music by Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy and Sandeep Chowta. Lyrics were by Sameer and Deepak Choudhary.

Today’s song is in the voices of Udit Narayan, Shankar Mahadevan, Mahalakshmi Iyer, Dominique Cerejo and lyrics are by Sameer. It had been filmed as a stage song and tells the world that India will be “sabse aage” in the years to come. That means one of the leading nations of the world. And we can see there is a lot of good happening in the country and hope to see positive changes in the years to come.

This was the promotional video that was up on Mukul Anand’s official website.
When I see such songs I feel all is not lost and there is still some patriotic fervour among the country’s youth and they express it in their own way.
Happy Republic day once again.

Hullo Atuldom

Time for a yearly roundup!!!! 2021 coming to a close. 2022 just a sunrise away. Hope we have different experiences in 2022, experiences that make us glad and bring a smile to our lips which stays the whole year.

I am sure Atulji or Sudhirji or one of the other blog-contributors, who have the patience to go through the statistics etc., will give us a table of how many new movies debuted on the blog in 2021, and other related info about which date saw how many posts etc. But the best that happened this year, IMO, is the series that Atulji undertook to enlist all the movies, music directors etc that Lata Mangeshkar was associated with in her looonnngg career.

On the way out of 2021 here is a song from the 1993 release “Shatranj”. A movie that I saw at the time of its release on cable TV, before the Satellite TV Tsunami hit us. It was produced by Arun S. Thakur, directed by Aziz Sejawal, had music by Anand Milind, and Sameer was the lyricist. S P Balasubramaniam, Abhijeet, Udit Narayan, Jolly Mukherjee, Kumar Sanu, Sudesh Bhonsle, Jayshree (popular as Bombay Jayshri in classical music circles), Poornima, Sadhana Sargam (i.e. all the good singers of the 90s) were used in the movie.

Kadar Khan was the dialogue writer of the movie which begins like “Chalti ka Naam Gaadi” (CKNG) which means we have three brothers -bachelors- who are reared by the eldest brother Dharamraj (Kadar Khan), the other two brothers being Dino and Dinky (Jackie and Mithun). The eldest brother has a problem with the female gender of the populace (like Ashok Kumar in CKNG), the other two don’t have any such issues and Renu & Radha (Divya Bharaati and Juhi Chawla) are their girl friends. Then there is a female called Rosie (Jamuna who appeared in a few films in the 80s and 90s, not much is known about her) who is shown to like the elder brother Dharamraj since childhood (Sarfaraz Khan, Kadar Khan’s own son played the younger Dharamraj). The reason for Dharamraj’s problem with females is shown as his step-mother who was nasty to him and his brothers as children.

The story has the necessary villain in the character of Prajapati (Kiran Kumar) the manager to the brothers’ father’s (Vikas Anand) business and also his killer. He is cheating the brothers’s step-mother and step-brother (Shakti Kapoor) and using their business as a front for his illegal activities (what else). The brothers have some misunderstandings with Dharamraj when Renu & Radha enter their lives, which get resolved; then the hard-feelings towards the step-family also is sorted out and the cause of all the problems in their lives (Prajapati) is brought to his logical end. And then “The End”.

Oh I forgot to mention a few more tributes that the movie paid to CKNG. CKNG had ‘Mohan Garage’ here the brothers have ‘Dharam Garage’. There was a ‘car’ in CKNG even this movie had a ‘car’ important to the story. CKNG begins with a song on the pet car, this one too begins with a song on the car. Additionally the brothers have a pet Monkey/ Chimpanzee. So let us have the movie debuting on the blog with the film-opening song that shows us the bonding between the brothers. This song is in the voices of SPB, Abhijeet and Udit Narayan.

There used to be a show called ‘Superhit Muqabla’ on Doordarshan Metro of those years (28 years back) which was on the lines of the legendary Binaca Geetmala. The show used to retire songs from the list of popular songs, which were complied based on vinyl records and cassette sales & and viewership of the show as such, after a 25 week run to make place for newer songs, very much like Binaca Geetmala. And songs of “Shatranj” (1993) were on this show for many weeks.

With this song we also say thank you to the entertainer Kadar Khan who left us today, in 2018, in Canada, where he was staying with his sons following his retirement from Bollywood. His last release was ‘Hogaya Dimaagh ka Dahi” in 2015 October (after a gap of seven years when ‘Mehbooba’ and ‘Deshdrohi’ released). He was a recipient of three Filmfare awards viz:

Best Dialogue for “Meri Awaz Suno” in 1982.

Best Comedian for “Baap Numbri Beta Dus Numbri” in 1991.

Best Dialogue (again) for “Angaar” in 1993.

He was conferred the Padma Shri, posthumously in 2019 by the Government of India.

He was 81 when he passed away.

Hullo Atuldom

We are into the last month of 2021. This is my first post for the month, and we have a few super-actors celebrating their birthdays this month. Also, there are a few actors, who are no longer amidst us, whose birth anniversaries are in December. Here is hoping that I get the inspiration to write for each of those dates.

But today’s birthday is not of any well known film star. It is our very own Ben Katie’s birthday. We wish her a very Happy and Musical day. May we see more of her on the blog-space.

This post sees the 2002 released, Rahul Dholakia directed, Neeraj Vora written (dialogues), Kishore Dadlaney- Lal Dadlaney produced romantic-comedy “Kehtaa Hai Dil Baar Baar” making its debut on the blog. It had songs written by Sameer which were tuned by Jatin-Lalit.

It had a cast headed by Paresh Rawal who played an egoistic, over possessive father to two lovely daughters. There is a lot of Mayhem when he discovers that one of his daughters (Kim Sharma, a doctor in the film) declares that she is in love with a man who is not a “Patel”. Further investigation by the father reveals that the prospective son-in-law (Jimmy Shergill) is neither a property-owner nor a professional. As if that was not enough to ruffle the fuming father’s feathers it turns out that the person is a mixed-blood Indian viz. part-Punjabi, part- South Indian (“Madrasi” as people who are unaware of the different states in south of India would like to say). This leads to a lot of hot-weather between Jimmy and Paresh Rawal which is definitely entertaining and I must say that it didn’t look ‘gross’.

I remember (vaguely) that there is a scene in the movie where Patel (Paresh Rawal) is shown to be organizing the catering for his other daughter’s (Namrata- played by Toral Mehta) wedding. That scene helps establish the kind of calculative mindset of ‘Roger Patel’ possesses. By the way, ‘Roger Patel’ is the Americanized version of Ranchod Rai Patel who likes to call himself ‘The Roger Patel’.

Neena Kulkarni, Ranjeet, Johnny Lever were also part of the cast. Today’s song shows us Neena Kulkarni- the loving mother- leading a set that approves of the match between Kim and Jimmy. The lively song has Gujarati and Punjabi words and even the tune has flavour of both the states. We can see Paresh Rawal is unmoved (he is one versatile actor, isn’t he? 🙂

This song shows us what potential Jimmy Shergill had and could have been a success in commercial movies too considering the handsome looks and sense of rhythm as far as dance is concerned. He was very good in displaying his emotions too as could be seen in the characters he played in movies like the Gulzar directed “Maachis” (1996), Yash Chopra’s “Mohabbatein” (2000) and some more from the Yash Raj stable.

Recently I had seen him in movies like “Happy Bhag Jayegi” (2016) and its sequel “Happy Phirr Bhag Jaayegi” (2018) both of which showcased his comic timing. I must admit that I liked what little I have seen of him in movies.

Incidentally, 3rd December happens to be his 51st birthday -here is wishing him lots of luck and good movies that allow him to show his full talent. By the way, he belongs to a family of immense talent. His paternal great aunt was the famous Indian painter Amrita Sher-Gil.

This song is in the vocals of Udit Narayan and Shraddha Pandit (some sites have mentioned that Poornima is the female playback, need confirmation).

Let us also wish Udit Narayan (belated, he turned a year older on 1st December). He has been in the music industry since 1980. He has had opportunity to sing with the legends Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar. Success came his way after a long struggle, in 1988 to be exact, when ‘Papa Kehte Hain’ from ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ ruled the air-waves and popularity charts.

He began his singing on Radio Nepal with Maithili and Nepali songs. He moved to Mumbai in the 80s and his debut was in the 1980 release ‘Unees Bees’ which had Rajesh Roshan wielding the baton, this was the song where he got to sing with Mohd Rafi. He has sung for even Dev Anand in ‘Swami Dada’. He is the recipient of 4 National Awards, 5 Filmfare Awards, and Padma Shri.

I am sure the followers of the blog will understand why I chose this song to go with this post. 🙂

Once again wishing our Ben Katie – naamkaran for Khyatiji done by our Sudhirji- a Very Happy Birthday.

Hullo Atuldom

Another date of October for which I always need to write out a post for.

It being the birth date of an actor whose work I began liking post 1975- “Sholay” to be exact. I liked the way he delivered his dialogues. Some dramatic dialogues which he had casually uttered are iconic and classic and stuff which fans quote as legendary.

Remember ‘mere paas maa hai’ it was not said forcefully or with banging of fists or any such heavy add-ons. He was also given dialogues which were comic in nature -for example the cricket commentary in English that has made “Namak Halal” a movie worth watching; he even managed to squeeze in some comedy intto the fight sequence in the climax of the movie. But I always loved the late night scene in Asrani’s office when Amitabh Bachchan calls Asrani and Dharmendra for a meeting to discus the situation between Vasudha and himself. I know I need not mention that I am talking of the Hrishikesh Mukherjee ’70s classic “Chupke Chupke” and the expression that he had when he said “for safety’s sake main woh bhi batadoonga”- priceless. He was so nice at depicting his emotions and I may have mentioned this a few times in earlier posts about how the scene between Sanjeev Kumar and AB Sr. in “Khuddar” was memorable as both the actors spoke with their eyes. An added advantage the film industry had when working with AB Sr. was he was good in action sequences too and is known to have enacted many of them without using a body-double or ‘stuntman’ (in filmy parlance). He managed to overcome his awkwardness where dance (a necessity in Indian movies) was concerned. He has also tried his hand at singing for his characters; for which initially, he was made-fun-of as he was considered to be a tuneless singer but he has sung and many of them have been very popular with his fans.

Today’s post which celebrates this all-time favorite actor of mine turning a year older or a step closer to 80 has a song from the 2003 (can’t believe this film was 18 years back, time has just flown) B R films production and Ravi Chopra directed “Baghban”. It had music by Aadesh Srivastava and Uttam Singh and songs were penned by Sameer. Alka Yagnik, Hema Sardesai, Richa Sharma, Sneha Pant, Udit Narayan, Aadesh Srivastava, Sudesh Bhonsle and Amitabh Bachchan were the playback singers used.

This song is pictured with an emotional Raj Malhotra (AB Sr.) singing, and yearning for his wife Pooja (Hema Malini) who is staying with one of their sons and he himself with another son. The story of ‘Baghban’ was something which was popular in the 60s and early 70s; but even this movie was successful with the new generation moviegoers. This song can also been seen as proof of what I stated earlier in this post viz. “actors speaking with their eyes”; here it is Hema and AB Sr. They have played the old couple so convincingly. The song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and Alka Yagnik.

Here is wishing the (once) Angry- Youngman, Shahenshah of Bollywood, Star of the Millennium, Big B or AB Sr. (people in entertainment industry have been addressing him in this manner for a few years now) a Happy Birthday and lots of good health.

Hullo Atuldom

Heard this song today in the noon program of Vividh Bharati -Desh Ki Surili Dhadkan (the channel’s tagline). And immediately recalled a 2001 release which featured the off-springs of the actors from the above song. ‘Farz’ from which today’s trigger happened is 54 years old, the off-springs of the actors are themselves 44 and 40..everything seems like yesterday but all things that I mentioned are decently in the PAST. Even a movie that released in 2001 is 20 years old, ooh!!!

I am talking of “Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai” which was directed by Satish Kaushik, written by Rumi Jaffery, songs were by Sameer and Anu Malik. Its cast included Kareena Kapoor, Rinke Khanna, Tusshar Kapoor, Amrish Puri, Dalip Tahil, Alok Nath, Vrajesh Hirjee, Himani Shivpuri, Dinesh Hingoo etc.

I have not seen the movie as a whole but vaguely recall that the story revolved around a sensitive young adult Karan (Tusshar Kapoor) who frequently skips college. Despite his poor academic performance, he displays many other talents. He is clever, an excellent musician, and plays in a band. His father constantly expresses his disappointment in him which often leads to Karan having outbursts of frustration and anger. One day in a deserted street, he lays eyes on Pooja (Kareena Kapoor) for the first time and falls in love with her. Following this brief acquaintance, he looks all over for her but fails to find her. He slowly begins to lose hope in his quest, stops playing music and decides to move to another city with his uncle. While on his way there, his car breaks down, and he is forced to hitch a ride. To his amazement, he finds Pooja in the driver’s seat. As they introduce themselves, an accident occurs when a truck collides with their car, which subsequently falls into a valley. Karan and Pooja find themselves hanging from a cliff, and even though Karan manages to haul Pooja back up the steep cliff, he loses his grip and falls into the ravine.

When Pooja regains consciousness, she assumes responsibility for Karan’s death and offers to help in the search for his body. Meanwhile, Karan has survived the fall but is seriously injured and unconscious. He is found by a man who takes him to the hospital and soon after, Karan is reunited with his family. As he recovers, he reflects on how he should have confessed his love to Pooja in the few moments they were together. He also begins to focus on his education instead of his music. In time, Pooja arrives at his doorstep to apologize and offers her friendship. They become good friends and then Pooja tells Karan that she must leave for the United States for further studies. Devastated, he finally confesses his love for her. Pooja feels the same way and cannot deny her feelings for Karan, and promises that she will return to him once she completes her education. Karan agrees to patiently wait for her.

September 20th is the birthdate of Kareena Kapoor. The fifth generation of the Kapoor Khaandan, only the third girl from the clan to enter showbiz- the other two being Sanjana Kapoor (Shashi Kapoor’s daughter) and Karisma Kapoor. The younger daughter of Randhir Kapoor and Babita. A few other caps also fit her dainty head- cousin to Ranbhir Kapoor, wife of Saif Ali Khan, daughter-in-law to Sharmila Tagore. She is a recipient of 6 filmfare awards beginning with award for best debut for her role in ‘Refugee’ (2000). She is considered to be a style icon and has also competent in enacting a variety of characters as we have see in ‘Chameli’, ‘Yuva’, ‘Dev’, ‘Fida’, ‘Aitraaz’ -all in 2004, each character different from the other. She has been paired opposite most of the heroes of that period- Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan, Fardeen Khan, Shahid Kapoor, and the Khans viz. Salman, Shahrukh, Aamir, Saif. She has also acted in a few multi-heroine movies. She says she is a huge fan of the (late) Sridevi.

With this song “Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai” (2001) makes its debut. This song is in the voices of Preethi, Pinky and Babul Supriyo. Preethi and Pinky are sisters who were very popular in the late 90s and at the turn of the millennium. I recall that a song, picturised on Rani Mukherjee and Preity Zinta, rendered by these sisters was very popular among school children and youngsters in that period.

Happy Birthday Bebo, I mean, Kareena.


Song-Maine koi jaadoo nahin kiya (Mujhe Kuchh Kehna Hai)(2001) Singers-Preeti, Pinky, Babul Supriyo, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Anu Malik

Lyrics

ankhiyon ne raat kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
ankhiyon ne raat kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
tuhi mere peechhe aaya piya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya aa
tuhi mere peechhe aaya piya
ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechhe aaya piya
ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechhe aaya piya

shokh haseena khushbu waali
chaand bhi tujh pe marta
itni haseen hoon chaand bechara aur bhala kya karta
chaand ki baaten chaand pe chhodo
apni baat bataao

bin bole har baat samajh lo
yoon na paheli bujaao
sona sona
main hoon sona

itna kehdo o occurs
meri hona

ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechhe aaya piya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya aa aa
tuhi mere peechhe aaya piya

maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechche aaya piya

is mehfil mein mere dil mein
kisne aag lagaayi
aag lagaane waali
tujhe tadpaane waali
mujhko nazar na aayi
chham chham paayal kyun bajti hai
mujhko zara samjhaao

baat samajhni hai jo tum ko
pass mere aa jaao
chhoona chhoona bainyya gori
dil tu de de chori chori

ankhiyaan milaake tune dil ko churaaya, loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya aa aa
toohi mere peechche aaya piya

ankhiyon ne raat kya jaadu kiya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
kya jaadu kiya
kya jaadu kiya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
toohi mere peechche aaya piya
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya aa aa
toohi mere peechche aaya piya
ankhiyaan milaake toone dil ko churaaya
loota loota loota mera jiya oh o o
maine koi jaadu nahin kiya
