Hullo to all Atulites

Today’s birthday girl was a Miss India winner in the year when my family got a TV for the first time ever. Prior to that whatever I have seen on TV (read Doordarshan) was either in other people’s houses or my chachu’s home. (As I have previously mentioned on many occasions. Those days nobody minded other people’s kids or adults too for that matter, coming in to see TV) I remember having got used to seeing the live relay of the Republic day parades, Filmfare Awards Nites, test matches, Wimbledon and opening ceremonies of Olympics or Asiad etc. They had a different charm to them specially when there would be no repeat telecasts and we used to either wake up early or sit up late to see live relays of overseas events.

One such live event which I tried never to miss was the Femina Miss India Contest. I have seen it almost every year till 1995 (then they became too commercial as so many other things in our lives.) So in the year 1984 we had this very cutely pretty (if there is such an expression) Juhi Chawla winning the Miss India crown. Then when she went to represent India at the Miss Universe contest I made it a point to sit through that too. Here she had worn a very lovely Ghaghara Choli and that got her the best costume award, it made her look so Indian that any Indian would have been proud to carry that look. In the final listing she was placed number five, even that was not a small achievement I am sure. But that gave her the ticket to a career in front of the camera. She has been a model & went on to become one of Hindi film industry’s reigning goddesses. I saw a little of two of her last releases and I was so happy that she has not been relegated to mother or aunt roles but has been getting strong female characters. “Gulab Gang” (2014) has her playing a conniving and shrewd politician, Sumitra Bagrecha, who uses people. Then came “Chalk n Duster” where she played a teacher who takes a stand against the commercialization of the Indian private education system. If she had Madhuri Dixit as her co actor in Gulab Gang she had Shabana Azmi with her in Chalk ‘n’ Duster. And in both movies it was difficult to judge who was better than whom. She has been a producer in partnership with Shahrukh Khan and Aziz Mirza. She is also the co-owner of the Kolkata cricket team in the IPL. What varied interests indeed. Her only regret was that she discontinued her dancing lessons after just three years but has been training in classical music for some time now.

Since I mentioned that Juhi Chawla had won the Best Costume at the Miss Universe I thought we will also have her in a song where she is donning a Ghaghara Choli and looking lovely/ pretty. The song is from the 1993-Mahesh Bhatt directed-Tahir Hussain produced- “Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke”. This movie had her play Vyjayanti Iyer who runs away from home and a marriage to a person she can’t stand. She takes refuge in Amir Khan’s home (initially without his knowledge), who has a bunch of kids to take care of. She becomes the go-between for the kids and their mama, falls in love with the mama and day dreams today’s song. It is sung by Alka Yagnik and Kumar Shanu. The song got Alka Yagnik a National Award for best singer and the movie got Juhi her Best Actress Filmfare Award. The song also fetched Sameer the best lyricist Filmfare Award. Nadeem-Shravan were the music directors.

Still liking your performances; Happy Birthday to you Juhi Chawla.


Song-Ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka (Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke)(1993) Singers-Alka Yagnik, Kumar Sanu, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Nadeem Shrawan

Lyrics

ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar kaaa
deedaar adhooraaa rehta hai
ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar kaaa
deedaar adhooraaa rehta hai
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
singaar adhoora rehta hai
ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka

ghoonghat ki aadh se dilbar ka
deedaar adhoora rehta hai
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
ikraar adhoora rehta hai
ghunghat ki aad se dilbar ka

dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka

gore mukhde se ghunghta hataane de
ghadi apne milan ki toh aane de
mere dil pe nahin mera kaabu hai
kuch nahi yeh toh chaahat ka jaadoo hai
badhti hi jaati hai sanam
pyar ki yeh bekhudi ho

do premiyon ke na milne se ae
sansaar adhooraa rehta hai
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
jab tak na pade aashiq ki nazar
singaar adhoora rehta hai
ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka

baagh mein gul ka khilna zaroori hai
haan mohabbat mein milna zaroori hai
paas aane ka achchha bahaana hai
kya karoon main ke mausam deewaana hai
dil mera dhadkaane lagi
abb toh yeh dewaangi ho
bina kisi yaar ke jaane jaan aa
yeh pyaar adhooraa rehta hai
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
jab tak na mile nazron se nazar
ikraar adhoora rehta hai

ghoonghat ki aad se dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
o dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
haan dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka
dilbar ka dilbar ka dilbar ka

A very Happy Holi to 9th holi today (13 march 2017) on this blog. And every holi we have Atul posting songs for the occasion. We have approximately 50 songs to celebrate holi. So does that mean we are out of songs? No, not at all! How can that happen? As long as we have Hindi Movies and as long as they have songs in them we can be sure of at least one holi song a year if not more. Oh, I seem to be echoing Sudhirji’s thoughts from his 2015’s holi post. But that is the truth of the matter. Holi will never go out of fashion in Bollywood. The only thing that might change is that people will request others to have dry holi this year as many parts of the country are facing drought conditions. And still others will opt for using organic colours that are less harmful to the skin etc. But what about the general public of the country who cannot afford the expensive organic stuff they will stick to the traditional gulal in various hues.

Readers of this blog might now be familiar with a certain pattern of posts on this blog.

While there are posts which focus largely on the song, or the film, or even personal anecdotes, one common pattern is the celebration of anniversaries and milestones, in a post.

The anniversaries are our way of paying tribute to the artiste concerned. Whoever the artiste, whether a composer or lyricist or actor, whatever his level of fame in the industry, we try to remember and honour him on his birth or death anniversary.

Hullo to all the guys and gals of Atuldom

The writing bug has hit me after a long time.

Had an enjoyable January. To begin with had a quiet ushering in of the New Year followed by birthday time. So each had a small outing attached to it.

Then the most eventful Sunday….17th January 2016. A day which was under planning since October 2015 when we had a mail from Guruji of his impending visit to Bangalore via Hosur and Hyderabad. This time the group met at a new venue— Residence of Gajendra Khanna. Now here I feel like mentioning that I am floored by his collection of Vinyl Records and the number of WORKING TURNTABLES or Record Players as I used to call them as a kid. Another thing that should be mentioned is his wonderful idea of how to get more people to enjoy an event and the thought behind getting us live on YOUTUBE that day. We went live that day at about 11. And instantly Avinashji, Ben Katie, Atulji YYIIPPEEEE master and a few of Gajendra’s friends (I don’t know exactly how many or who all) hooked on to us. The (physical) attendees were Shenoyji, Arunji (Guruji), Rajaji, Gajendraji and a group of music lovers whom I got acquainted with for the first time that day.

I grew up in a small town where everybody knew everybody and also knew each other’s ‘kartoots’. I was young enough not to understand some conversations of grownups. On one occasion when I was at a fruit sellers shop, with my father, a prominent person came to buy mangoes. It was beginning of the mango season and they were very dear. The shop keeper asked him “Sir, is it for house no. 1 or for house no. 2?” I looked at my father and he warded off my questioning look and started examining mangoes on the rack.

Good day to all in atuldom

So today’s post is not giving any classic vintage rare song. It is one of the run of the mill (chalu, chalta hai) kind of song. It is written by Sameer who has written many traditionally lyrical and poetic songs. But I consider it must have been a little difficult for such a person to write “a not so purist” kind of song. People would consider it the depths of despair to even think of it as a song. But in the words of my daughter it is a very realistic song. A normal middle class person can only promise a Pepsi or coke to his girlfriend. He can only find solitude in a crowded theatre. Lets agree that in the 1960s,70,80s etc that is where we used to encounter most couples who were in love. So what is wrong in expressing it explicitly in a song. To top it where is solitude in our cities now a days?

People who are into stock markets try to guess the movement of shares based on past pattern of their price movement. I think that the principles of stock market indexes can be used to make guesses about my activities as well. If lots of songs are being discussed then it could mean that I have lots of time at my disposal, little pressure of work, family, pets etc and that my internet connection, electricity connection etc are co operating. 🙂

Today (5 august 2015)is the birthday of Kajol.

And I find myself writing a post on this blog for this occasion. 🙂

Of all the songs I’ve written about here, this has got to be the most recent. Most of the songs I post are from the 70s or earlier, with just the odd 1980s song.

And this one is of the 1990s.

But I want to post this for three reasons.

As has been mentioned in the earlier posts of the day, today (19 july 2015) is the seventh birth anniversary of this blog. One single article was posted on the first day of the blog in 2008. The blog remained one song a day blog for the first forty days and then we began to post several articles every day. Today, seven year later, the blog has well over elevent thousand songs. If one takes an average, it turns out to be an average of 4.5 songs per day. Come to think of it, maintaining this daily strike rate for seven years is quite an achievement.

The last time I discussed my dogs was in february 2013, which was more than two years ago. My dogs were two years old at that time. Now they are four years old. So they have become twice as old as they were at that time.
