Hullo All

Todays’ post features a rather new song. It is only 19 years old. It is from “Fiza” (2000) which was directed by Khalid Mohammed who used to be known as a film critic before he got into film-making. He has made “Fiza”; “Zubeida”; “Tehzeeb” and “Silsilay”. He is also the son of yesteryear actress Zubeida about whom our in-house encyclopaedia has written in this article.

Before “Zubeida” Khalid Mohammed made “Fiza” with Jaya Bachchan, Karishma Kapoor, Hritik Roshan, with Neha and Bikram Saluja (in miniscule roles of the love interests of Hritik and Karishma). The movie also had Sushmita Sen, Manoj Bajpayee, Isha Koppikar and Asha Sachdev in guest appearances. If I am not wrong this was Jaya Bachchan’s comeback into commercial cinema after being away for many years. Before this she had acted in “Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Maa” but that was what is called an off-beat or art film.

The movie’s story was:

Six years after Fiza’s (Karishma Kapoor) brother, Aman (Hrithik Roshan) disappears during the 1993 Mumbai riots, she goes to look for him. When she does find him, to her horror she sees that he has joined a terrorist group. She forces him to come home, and he finally re-unites with their mother (Jaya Bachchan). However, his allegiance and thoughts make him want to join the terrorist network, led by Murad Khan (Manoj Bajpai). A confrontation with two men who harass Fiza leads to Aman revealing his involvement with the terrorist network in front of his sister, mother and the police. His mother’s grief and disappointment eventually lead her to commit suicide. Fiza tries once more to find her brother, with the help of Anirudh (Bikram Saluja). Aman has been sent on a mission to kill two powerful politicians; when he does succeed in assassinating them, his own terrorist group tries to kill him. He escapes and Fiza follows him. They confront each other and with the police closing in on him, he asks her to kill him. After much persuasion Fiza kills her brother. Aman dies saying the first Kalma in Islam, “La illa ha ill Allah, Mohammad dur Rasullalah”

Karishma Kapoor was the first Kapoor daughter to enter the film industry if one chooses to forget her paternal aunt (bua) Ritu (Kapoor) Nanda’s walk in the rain in “Shri 420” and Sanjana Kapoor’s (Shashi Kapoor’s daughter) brief film career. She managed to find her spot in the industry by her hardwork and succeeded on her own terms. She began her journey in 1991 as a teenager opposite (south actor) Harish and went on to act in close to 65 films which had her pair with Govinda in some hit comedies of the mid-nineties. Her roles in the 1996 release “Raja Hindustani” and 1997 “Dil Toh Paagal Hai” (DTPH) made audiences realise the range in her abilities. DTPH also got her a National Award and Filmfare and Zee awards for best supporting actress. “Fiza” and “Zubeida” were movies where she was the only actor who was a star. It is amazing that these movies are remembered for her work in them inspite of her fan-following for the masala movies that she worked in that period.

Today she turns a year older (girls never tell their age :)) but doesn’t look her age as she has maintained herself wonderfully. The reason I chose this lesser known song is it shows her dancing abilities, her beauty and the expressiveness of her eyes. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, written by Sameer and Anu Malik is the music director. The song occurs when a group of Fiza’s ex-class fellows comment on how serious a person she is and doesn’t live-life like youngsters; partying and relaxing etc. Isha Koppikar (in the lavender casuals) who is one of her friends asks Fiza to prove the others wrong. Bikram Saluja is also present.

Wish You a Very Happy Birthday Lolo a.k.a. Karishma Kapoor.

Naachoon Naachoon! Na na na naachoon!

Has anyone seen today’s google doodle?!!!!

It is dedicated to our dear Mogambo a.k.a Durgaprasad Bharadwaj a.k.a Chaudhry Baldev Singh a.k.a Thakur Durjan Singh a.k.a Balwant Rai a.k.a Kishorilal a.k.a Amrish Puri.  He would have been 87 today.

Feels like they have appreciated some one close to our family. The doodle shows him in the look he sported for DDLJ – ‘Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ (1995) as Chaudhry Baldev Singh. That movie is remembered as much for the last scene where the Chaudhry tells his daughter

jaa beta jaa. Apni Raj ke paas jaa. Jaa Simran, jee le apni zindagi jaa beta jaa

The last scene can be seen on YT at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAaL5HZC5YI. The movie is remembered for this last scene, as much for all the romance and romantic songs that it had.

Can anyone forget his character ‘Dong’ in the movie ‘Tehalka’ (1992) where he kept repeating “Dong kabhi wrong nahi hota” much on the lines of “Mogambo khush hua” from ‘Mr. India’ (1987). Here I must admit that I haven’t seen ‘Tehalka’ but if I am not wrong, ‘Dong’ and his song “Shom Shom Shom Shomo sha sha” is the only thing in public memory from that movie.

There have been similar movies where this much-loved character actor, with a very distinct voice, was the only saving grace. He has played an almost equal number of benevolent characters as in the 1999 release ‘Gair’ as he has played his malevolent characters. He has tried his hand at singing (the above-mentioned song of ‘Tehalka’ was in his voice) and shaking a leg too and looked as if he enjoyed dancing.

Today’s song shows him in his dancing element. It is from the 1998 Rajkumar Santoshi produced and directed ‘China Gate’. It has music by Anu Malik with Sameer as the lyricist. The song shows him dancing in the company of the folk dancer played by Urmila Matondkar, KD Chandran, Tinnu Anand, Viju Khote, Jagdeep, Anjaan Shrivastav, Sameer Soni, and Harish Patel.

Remembering Amrish Puri in this very lively avataar

Song – Chhamma Chhamma Baaje Re Meri Painjaniya  (China Gate) (1998) Singer – Alka Yagnik, Vinod Rathor, Shankar Mahadevan, Lyrics – Sameer, MD – Anu Malik

My Railway related reminiscences- 3
——————————————————————————————

In my first article in the series, I discussed my first posting at Secunderabad. In my second articles, I went back into the past and discussed my probation days, including my stay at Vadodara.

In this third episode, I go back to the future ! Here I discuss my second posting.

My first posting was perhaps in the best place in the Railway zone of South Central Railway. I was posted in the capital city. I stayed near Secunderabad Railway station and I got a Railway quarter there. A capital city has so many attractions as well as opportunities. Those were the days when “computer” was a big buzz word. We had computer coaching institutes mushrooming all over India. A typical computer course taught DOS, wordstar, Lotus 123 and dbase3 . Does it ring any bells with some readers ? 🙂

A government employee is supposed to take permission if he/she wants to study in any course while in government service, with the undertaking that his study would not affect his performance in his/her job. I duly took this permission and began to attend one such course in evening.

My boss in my work place was an old fashioned conservation man. Same was the case with my bosses at the Headquarter. One standard advise that I would be given by them was – “concentrate on learning your job instead of learning about computers.” They did not share my “vision” that computers are a big productivity tools and they would play an important role in our lived in the coming days.

My HQ bosses decided that the facilities at the capital city were harmful for me and so they decided to post me to a place where such facilities were non existent.

They identified a place that was poles apart when compared with Secunderabad. It was called Purna, in Marathwada region of Maharashtra. I was posted there.

This news was naturally a setback for me. But there was not much one could do about it. This place was a junction station and it had MG lines.I took a night train called Kacheguda Ajmer express (the most prestigious train in the section). The train started at night from Secunderabad and arrived Purna after midnight at around 4 AM or so.

In Secunderabad, I was a small fish in a big ocean as far as Railways set up was concerned, but I was going to be a big fish in a small pond like Purna. There I was being posted as the incharge of all Mechanical Engineering activities of Railways in and around Purna. My beat covered places up to Manmad (360 km to west), Khandwa (405 km to north), Adilabad (242 km to east) and Nizamabad (150 km to South East). All four places were in different directions and were located in three different states. When I think about it, the area under my jurisdiction was larger than the entire Railway system in some small countries. All this was MG section.

I arrived Purna Railway station at the early hours. Since I was going to be the boss of all I surveyed, people had arrived at the station to receive me. People unfamiliar to me always had difficulty identifying me. I got down from the station and stated looking for people who may have arrived to receive me. Likewise those who had arrived to receive me were lookng for someone who should look like a boss to them. Finally we managed to locate each other. They took me to Railway Officers Guest House, a small two room guest house. One room was booked for me and this room was going to be my place of stay till I got my regular accomodation.

Most people travel in style, carrying large number of suitcases which they have great difficulty fitting inside their train berth and they then secure their suitcases under lock and key. I on the other hand woul travel with very modest looking luggage, typically a bag, and a jhola, and sometimes a suitcase. I would shove them under my train berth. No securing them under lock. In fact even my suitcase would not be locked if I could help it. I secured my suitcase only to avoid the embarrasment of an unlocked suitcase getting open and all its content falling out. And my luggage never got stolen despite lying all unsecured !

The modestness of my luggage was one of the reasons why unfamiliar people coming to receive me at the station would be unable to locate me at first glance. 🙂 Once my luggage waskept at the rest house, naturally it would remain all unlocked.

The small rest house had very small number of staff. Cleaning and dusting of the rooms was done by a lady. He small child would accompany her. The door of the room would remain open all the time.

In the morning I went to my work place. This place was a steam loco shed, located towards south of the Purna Railway station. In its prime, this loco shed had over 60 MG steam locomotives. The number had come down a good deal.

The office was located on the first floor of a old fashioned British Style building. My chamber was quite large and spacious vis a vis the small chamber that I had in my previous place of posting. There were hundred of staff in the office. People there still complained about there being less number of staff. 🙂

A few months later, my top boss (Chief Mechanical Engineer, based at Secunderabad ) paid a visit to Purna. During the course of his “inspection” of the place, he enquired- “how many clerks are there in the shed ?”.

The reply was “The work has reduced drastically, and so has the number of clerks. Now we have ONLY 40 clerks.”

“ONLY 40 clerks. My office at Secunderabad dealing with entire zone only has 39 clerks !”- the Chief Mechanical Engineer exclaimed !

Though I joined at Purna, my heart was still at Secunderabad and I would try to go back to Secunderabad at weekends and holidays, much to the chagrin of my immediate boss. I would leave for Secunderabad on friday and arrive back on Monday morning.

Once I went to Secunderabad on weekend and arrived back on monday morning. While at Secunderabad, I boaght sweets, with the intention of consuming them at leisure in Purna. As usual, my luggage remained unlocked in my room.

When I came back to my room in the evening, I found that out of 20 pieces of sweet, only one piece remained in the bag where I had kept the sweet packet. The cleaning lady and her young son were looking very worried. I realised that the small kid had opened the box, and seeing the sweets, he kept eating the pieces and her indulgent mother could not prevent him in time. Now both of them were very worried.

I looked at the matter from the point of view of the kid and decided that it was alright. I behaved as if nothing happened. The mother and child waited till then morning to see my reaction. I showed no reaction and both of them were mightily relieved. It must have been an unexpected big lucky break for them. I could notice that they were silently thankful for me from the core of their hearts.

With time, I stopped going to Secunderabad at weekends. Instead, I would go to the nearly towns in the first half and be back by night. There was Parbhani (30 km to the north) and Nanded (30 km to the south) from Purna. These two district places had may be 4-5 movie halls each. I would visit one of these places during weekends, watch a movie and would come back to Purna by night.

All this journey was by train, of course. On one such occasion, I had gone to Parbhani. I watched some movie and then boarded the evening train coming towards Purna. The middle aged person seated opposite me in the first class coach was a PWD engineer in Maharashtra Government. He was coming back to his Nanded residence after attending some meeting at Aurangabad. I got introduced to him. He told me “kabhi koi kaam ho to bataana. Indian ka Home minister S B Chawhan ka main family friend hoon.” He also gave me his home address of Nanded.

I got down at Purna.

I was a “different” kind of Railway officer. I believed in things like honesty, fairplay etc. My immediate boss (based at Secunderabad), on the other hand was an archtypical Government official who believed in sucking up to the boss as the easy and only way of success. And he expected me to do the same. There were occassions when “failures” would take place and he would ask me to suspend someone. I would carry out my investigation into the failure and would found that the person required to be suspended was innocent. So I would refuse to suspend the innocent man.

This happened on quite a few occasions. He at his level would tell the division boss”(DRM)- “driver was responsible for late start of train. I have asked my Purna officer to suspend the driver.” I would investigate the matter and I would find that the driver was innocent.

The boss looked for opportunity to get his own back. One usual opportunity was to write adversely about my performance in my annual confidential report. I was an unusual kind of person who did not give a damn and I felt that spoiling my ACR was a non issue. He got his opportunity to actually hurt me. I wanted to take leave because my parents were calling me. It is nt difficult for people to realise the probable reason. 😉 I foolishly informed my boss of the reason why I wanted leave. So he got a great opportunity to harass me. It is not possible to give you leave right now. But you will be given leave next month. He would tell me. I woul;d belibve him and ask for leave the next month. Then also he would say the same thing. This went on for three months and by the time it was clear t one and all that my boss was using this opportunity to harrass me.

I felt very low when I was denied leave for the third time. I felt helpless. Then I remembered the Nanded based man. I went to Nanded and met him. I asked him to help. He was of course taken aback. He was no doubt a family friend of Indian home minister and a school mate of his son but what he had told me in the train may have been an exaggeration of his influence. In any case, meeting with him and talking with him served as some balm and gave me some mental relief.

A few weeks later, I received a telegram- “father serious, come home immediately.” I , alongwith my staff were naturally aghast, my supervisor (Loco Foreman) raised hell with the division headquarter and arranged for my leave on urgent basis. I was actually quite worried till I reached home and I was relieved to know that my father was alright. It was the usual time tested way of securing leave if the proper way of obtaining leave failed.

This episode taught me a valuable lesson that I tell everyone to follow. You should never tell others (especially your boss) about your “problems” and expect him to sympathise with you. Your vulnerabilities will be used against you. You should give the impression that you have no problems whatsoever. I have followed this lesson after this experience. I have rarely asked for any leave during the last 20 years of my service. And I tell everyone that I am happy wherever I am posted. And whatever I state happens to be the truth as well.

The movie that I had watched at Parbhani that evening (when I met that PWD Engineer) may have been either “Daamini” (1993) or “Dil Aashna Hai”(1992) or some other movie. I am not sure now. Let me assume that it was “Daamini” (1993).

This movie was directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. It had Rishi Kapoor, Meenakshi Seshadri, Sunny Deol, Amrish Puri, Tinu Anand, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Anjan Srivastava, Rohini Hattangadi, Aamir Khan, K K Raina, Paresh Rawal, Sulbha Arya, Vijayendra Ghatge, Viju Khote, Achyut Potdar, Asha Sharma etc in it.

The movie had five songs. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

The song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Meenakshi Sheshadri.

With this song, “Daamini”(1993) makes its debut in the blog.

Blog Day : 3983 Post No. : 15070

My Railway related reminiscences- 2
——————————————————————————————

Couple of days back, I discussed a song of 1991, with my reminiscences of Hyderabad/ Secunderabad, where I was based at that time. Those were the early days of my career and that was my first posting.

That post gave me an idea that I should discuss my experiences of my stays in various places of India during my career. When I began to think about my experiences of those days, many interesting memories came to the fore. So I thought that I should discuss those memories (alongwith movies that I saw at those places) in a series form. I decided to name this series “my reminisces in Railways”. The article accompanyng the 1991 song thus began the fist part of the series.

Secunderabad was my fist posting, but that was preceded by period of probation which was during late 1980s and early 1990s. Those were the days when we would visit various places in Indian Railways located all around the country and undergo “training”. I describe it as “training” and not training because very few people actually trained at these places. It was more like site seeing and getting a first hand experience of how to manage to travel in trains, often without confirmed reservations and often without any confirmed accomodations at the places of our “training.” Those experiences were the real learning experiences for us.

People would form small groups of a few probationers and would travel and “train” together. My group used to be the smallest possible, viz two of us. 🙂

Most of these trainings were of one or two weeks. At the end of the “training”, we would be interviewed by the head of that organisation and then we would get a certificate that we had successfully completed the training. We used to dread the interview and would hope that the head would spare us and give us the certificate without actually interviwing others.

One of these training programmes took us to New Katni junction. We were supposed to undergo training in Diesel shed there. After the end of two weeks, the most dreaded occasion, viz interview with the head of the diesel shed, arrived. The head, one Mr Marcus, a very strict disciplinarian, started to grill the two of us on what we had learnt about diesel locomotives. Both of us were largely clueless on the subject and so I hoped that interviewer would vent his frustration equally on the two of us. My groupmate, Suresh had managed to memorise a few buzz words of Diesel locomotives and I was not familiar with even those words. So, I was singled out by Mr Marcus and he gave me a mouthfull. Learn from Mr Suresh, he at least knows a few terms about Diesel locomotives, I was told.

Suitably chastened, I came out and resolved that I would actually take the training seriously in future. But it was a resolution that I could never keep. 🙂

But that experience gave me an important life and management lesson. When a tiger appears before a herd of deer, the deers need not outrun the tiger. They only need to ensure that they outrun the slowest deer among them. 🙂 The tiger would catch the slowest of the deers and the other deers would escape.

While most trainings were for small durations and they were for probationers in small groups, there were some centralised trainings in large groups and of longer durations in designated locations.

For example, all probationers of all services had to mandatorily undergo two trainings. The first was called “Foundation”” course and it was followed by “Induction” course. These courses would be of one month duration and they would take place at Railway Staff College, Vadodara.

The need for centralised training of Railway officers was first felt in 1920s in pre independence era and a “Railway Staff College” was established in Dehradun in 1930. Within two years, some senior Railway Man decided that training of Railway Officers was a luxury that Railways could ill afford and so that “Railway Staff College” at Dehradun was closed down. Its premises were sold to Army. The present day Indian Military Academy at Dehradun is located where the original “Railway Staff College” stood from 1930 to 1932.

Two decades later, it was once again realised that training of Railway officers was not a luxury but a necessity so Railway Staff College was again established. This time it was set up at Vadodara. Railways took Pratap Vilas Palace of Vadodara on lease in 1949. Subsequently Railways bought this premise outright in 1964.

The magnificent Pratap Villa Palace was designed by Charles Frederick Stevens in 1914. Readers may recall that Bombay VT was built by Frederick Williams Stevens in 1887, who was the father of Charles Frederick Stevens. I find it interesting that Charles Frederick Stevens, though an Englishman was named in Marathi-Gujrati manner, viz. Name of the person, followed by father name, followed by Surname. 🙂

The first principal of Railway Staff College, Vadodara was Mr P C Bahl, from 1952 to 1956. His son Lt Commander Rajnish Bahl of Indian navy married film actress Nutan.

It was in this Railway Staff College that I underwent my Foundation Course. There were around 40 probationers in the batch. They were accomodated in hostel rooms, two probationers in each room.

I had decided that I would take Foundation course seriously, and as a part of my seriousness, I chose a room partner who himself was a serious student. No, not the abovementioned Suresh, but another person named Rahul.

Vadodara was (it still is) a nice place. Classes were held in day time for five days a week. Saturday and Sunday were free.

We would typically go out to watch night show of movies in Vadodara after dinner time. It was on one such night that Rahul suggested that we should go watch a new movie called “Dil”(1990). This movie had two newcomers in lead roles. The hero was one Aamir Khan, who had made a successful debut with “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak” (1988). The leading lady was Madhuri Dixit, who had become an all India rage after the song “ek do teen” in “Tezaab” (1988).

We went for the night show of “Dil”(1990). We left our hostel at 9 PM and we were worried that we would be late for the show. But when we arrived there, we found that we were well in time. The previous show was still playing. We kept waiting and waiting. The earlier show ended after 10 PM. Our night show began at 10-30 PM, which is too late for a night show to start.

It was well past 1 AM when the show finally ended. In my younger days, I would remain wide awake and aware and would not miss any moment of the movie, not even newsreels and ads. But those days were in the past. I was feeling sleepy throughout the movie. So I missed much of the story and so I was not aware what was going on in the movie.

This movie “Dil” (1990) is not yet covered in the blog. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Udit Narayan and Anuradha Paudwal. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anand Milind.

The song is picturised on the lead pair of Aamir Khan and Madhuri Dixit, both looking so young and fresh faced vis a vis today. But then this movie had come three decades ago !

The song from the movie under discussion is titled “mujhe neend na aaye” , but it was a case of “mujhe neend hi neend aaye” for me in the movie hall in that show. 🙂

My Railway Related Reminiscences – 1
——————————————————————————————

When I look back into days gone by, I find that my recollections of the past can be divided neatly into decades. I have vague recollections of 1960s as I was quite young in that decade. 1970s is the decade that I recall most vividly as well as most fondly as I was as my precocious best in this decade, being in my teens in this decade.

I find that my recollections of subsequent decades are rather more vague. I can tell you what I was doing in 1975, but I do not have similar vivid recollections of 1985, 1995 or even 2005 !

The above applies to my recollections on Hindi movies and HFM as well. I cannot recall even one Hindi movie song of 2005 or 2015 if my life dwepended on it, but I can readily recollect dozens of songs of 1975.

Since our younger regulars never tire of reminding us that good songs were created in 1990s and later as well, I thought that I should try and discuss some songs from those years even though my recollections of those days are not as vivid as my recollections of 1970s. 🙂

Much of my 1980s was spent in my “higher” education. From 1990s onwards, I found myself posted in various parts of the country.

My initial postings were in South, in what was South Central Railway, with its HQ at Secunderabad. My initial days there were spent in twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. My first posting was very much in that place. Later, I was posted at a small place in Marathwada called Purna.

I watched quite a few movies in Hyderabad/ Secunderabad. Those were Hindi movies, Telugu movies as well as English movies.

I was a firm believer that one should walk on foot in any new place wherever you wanted to go. That helped you familiarise yourself with various landmarks of the place. I applied my theory rigidly. I would walk six km daily from my residence to my workplace in the morning and then come back by walk in the evening. So I used to walk 12 km daily. 🙂

On weekends, I would plan to watch movies. I used to buy all the three English daily newspapers published in the city, namely Deccan Chronicle, Hindu and Indian Express. The three newspapers together form such a bulk that sometimes people would mistake me for a newspaper vendor. 🙂

I would look at the cinema hall ads to find which movies were playing in which movie halls. After identifying which movie to watch and where to watch, I would decide how to reach there.

It was sometime in 1991 or may be 1992 that I decided to go and watch “Phool Aur Kaante”(1991).

THe movie was playing in a movie hall in old city of Hyderabad. I stayed in Secunderabad near the Secunderabad Railway Stations at a distance of 15 km. How to reach there.

I boarded a local train from Secuderabad and reached Kacheguda Railway station. From there I walked towards old city, in the general direction of Hyderabad(aka Nampally) Railway station. I had a map of the twin city and I would consult it often to find locations of interest to me.

I kept walking on and on and came across old city, full of densely populated areas. I did not have to go Huderabad Railway station. The movie hall was somewhere in between Kacheguda and Hyderabad Railway stations.

I arrived the hall well in time so I had little difficulty buying a ticket for for matinee show. Now, show beginning at 3 PM is matinee show for me, as I was born and brought up in North India, but in Hyderabad, it was called first show there. I think it is still called first show in those parts.

That was not the only difference. What I knew as “cold” drink in north was called “cool” drink there. 🙂

I soon found lots of movie watchers arriving at the movie hall. Now, more than two decades later, I have read about the movie going audience of Hyderabad from our beloved inhouse encylopaedia Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh in many of his articles. Bulk of movie watchers who had gathered belonged to that kind. There were burkha nasheen females accompanied by lots of small kids. It was not as if this movie had a well known hero. This movie had debutants in lead roles. I wondered why all of them had so eagerly gathered to watch the movie where a newcomer was the hero.

The show began after some wait. It goes withot saying that bulk of movie watchers enjoyed the movie thorougly. I would have enjoyed this movie like them if I was two decades younger. But during these two decades, I had learnt thinks like “logical” thinking etc. I was applying logic on the movie and was not able to find much to enjoy. Now, the hero and heroine are college students. But they were hardly seen studying even for one minute. They would be seen singing dancing and romancing for the entire duration of the movie. Come on, how can one even get admitted to a decent college if all one does is teasing the female students and making passes on them. And in which college one finds females falling in love with the eve teaser. In real life India, such male students would get expelled from the college, and here in the movie he is being glorified. Moreover, how can such students even survive the academic rigours of college life ?

Moreover, I believe that one goes to college to study and not to romance. There is plenty of time and opportunity left in life in future for such romantic pursuits once you have successfully completed your studies and have become financially independent.

Conscientious movie watchers like me are in minority and no movie makers do any thing to appease movie goers like me. Movie makers merrily go on to make movies like this which are big hits at the box office and which are happily lapped up by simple minded movie goers.

I have covered one song from this movie in the past. That “past” happened to be 11 june 2009, viz exactly ten years ago. So, this movie becomes an ideal case of blog ten year challenge.

So here is the second song from “Phool Aur Kaante” (1991) on this day viz 11 june 2019, exactly ten years after covering the first song of the movie in the blog. This song is sung by Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

This movie was produced by Dinesh Patel and directed by Kuku Kohli. This movie had Ajay Devgun, Madhoo, Amrish Puri, Raza Murad, Raghunath, Jagdeep, Goga Kapoor, Suresh Chatwal, Aruna Irani etc in it. The movie was the launch vehicle of Ajay Devgun. His stunt master father Veeru Devgun was behind the production of this movie.

Watch the picturisation of the song. The song is quite enjoyable to listen to and watch to in you can switch off your conscience and sensibilities. But I have great difficulty doing that.

Nevertheless, here is this song from “Phool Aur Kaante” (1991) which was hugely popular those days and continues to remain so till this day.

Hullo to Atuldom

October was slightly busier than normal. I have missed a few birthdays -dates which I always try to write for. I missed Kishore Kumar’s anniversary, and birthdays of Hema Malini, Ashok Kumar, Vinod Khanna, Smita Patil, Shammi Kapoor and a few for which I had made mental notes for – Sunny Deol, Kadar Khan etc. But unless I write oops! type, mental notes remain in the mind. And even mere typing is not enough I should send it as email too, technology has not yet advanced to the level that one person can read another’s thoughts and convert it into a post. Thank god that there is a small amount of privacy left in these modern technological times.

But my post today (26 october 2018) is not to cry about technology. Today is one of those dates in October which I don’t like to miss; at least for the last 3 years.

It is important for me that I write at least a few words to wish this dear friend of ours on his birthday. I may not be as eloquent as Atulji was in this post of his last year, or as emotional as Archanaji was in this post. I have not known our today’s birthday boy for as long as Pamir Harvey but I agree to everything that he had written in this post and have expressed it a few times in this last few years. He is among those friends with whom there has been a comfort level wherein I just message him or pick up the phone and talk for long without any particular topic (sometimes we do get topical).

As he has said last year in one of his comments and I quote “this blog might have started as a repository for HFM, but over the years, it has spawned close friendships amongst some of us, co-travellers.”

Here is wishing this co-traveller, friend, and fellow Atulite- Rajaji “A very very Happy birthday”. May we see more of you on the blog. And don’t mind if you can’t feed us with your essays even your twit-style writing is thought provoking.

The song with this post is from a rather new movie (by the standards of the blog) considering it released on 5th November, 1999. It was directed by Eeshwar Nivas, for a story by Ram Gopal Verma. The movie tried to portray the criminal-politician nexus using Bihar as the backdrop and its effect on the life of an honest police officer. The movie starred Manoj Bajpai and Sayaji Shinde on the two sides of the law. It won a National Award for best feature film, and represented India at various international film festivals. The songs were penned by Sameer and Amar Akbar Anthony were the music directors. OOPS, Sorry! I mean Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy (I have Shankar Mahadevan call the trio as Amar- Akbar- Anthony in one of his interviews).

Today’s song is sung by Baby Anagha, Kavita Krishnamurthy, and Shankar Mahadevan. It is a typical scene-in-a-middle class home in the morning before the father prepares to leave for work. A very familial situation where Raveena Tandon plays the homemaker – one of the many deglamourized roles she played.

Oh, it is also Raveena Tandon’s birthday today. Let us wish Raveena a long and healthy life and enjoy her in this song.


Song-Mere papa ka gussa (Shool)(1999) Singers-Baby Anagha, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Shankar Mahadewan, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Shankar Ehsan Loy

Lyrics

mere papa ka gussa
tam tadam

ayya mere papa ko gussa jab aata hai
dar ke maare tv aur kapaat hil jaata hai
ayya mere papa ko gussa jab aata hai

ayya tere papa ko gussa jab aata hai

jaldi savere main uthti hoon

jaldi savere main uthti hoon

socho socho

inko uthaake
chaai banaake doon main
kapde saare dhoti hoon
main naashta deti hoon
poore ghar ka bojh
apne sar pe main

tumhe bhi main sambhaaloon
inhe bhi main sambhaaloon
kaise bolo,
ho bolo bolo
ayya tere papa ko ghussa jab aata hai

mere papa ka ghussa
tam tadam

main hoon police mein
choron ka peechha
din bhar main karta hoon
aage peechhe
ae daudoon bhaagoon
main hoon police mein
choron ka peechha
din bhar main karta hoon
aage peechhe
ae daudoon bhaagoon
meri majboori koi nahin samjhe yahaan

arre main bhi ghar mein cockroach aur choohon se ladhti hoon
saara din inke main peechhe padti hoon
tum bhi the mere pichhe
lekin shaadi se pehle
main hoon main hoon
boss ghar ki

ayya mere papa ko gussa jab aata hai
dar ke maare tv aur kapaat hil jaata hai
papa ka ghussa kaisa
hai darasingh jaisa

dekho dekho

dekho dekho
haan dekho dekho
mere papa ka gussa

 Today we remember the great son this soil Sardar Bhagat Singh (28th September 1907 – 23rd March 1931), on his birth anniversary.

We remember him for his bravery, courage, determination and supreme sacrifice made for a cause of the people, the people of this country.

He laid down his life at a young age of only 23 years, 5 months, and 25 days. He could have surrendered to the British and chosen a leisurely life enjoying the benefits and luxuries showered by the Britishers on him, had he requested to forgive him as proposed by them. However instead of choosing ‘the life of slavery’ he chose to dedicate his life for the ‘noblest cause – the freedom of his Motherland’ from the Britishers.

He will remain the inspiration for many as long as humanity exists and people read about him and realize what Bhagat Singh was and how great was he to have done so much in one single life of only 23 years.

I have earlier presented my thoughts while presenting the songs ‘Pagdi Sambhaal Jatta’ and ‘Vekho Loko Khidan To Pehlon’. Whatever will be written about him to remember him and his thoughts, is very less in comparison to the legacy he has left for us. And I am sure as the coming generations read about him will find his thoughts still relevant in terms of what his dreams of ‘true freedom’ for India was and what we have achieved after getting our ‘freedom’ – and they will find that yes, we have still miles to go to build this nation in the pursuit of those dreams.

As I have mentioned earlier in my posts the year 2002 was a special year as in that year there were as many as three movies released on the life of Bhagat Singh.

  • 23rd March 1931 Shaheed
  • The Legend Of Bhagat Singh
  • Shaheed-E-Azam

While “23rd March 1931 Shaheed” and “The Legend Of Bhagat Singh” were released on the same date the other movie “Shaheed-E-Azam” was delayed and was released at a later date.

I will not go into which one amongst them was better than the other. The important thing is that they were made on the life of Bhagat Singh and to make people aware of his true story (may be with a little or more filmy touch).

Today I present a song from the Rajkumar Santoshi directed ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh-2002’. This movie was produced by Kumar Taurani and Ramesh Taurani (of TIPS). It had the star cast of Ajay Devgan, Sushant Singh, D. Santosh, Akhilendra Mihsra, Raj Babbar, Farida Jalal, Amrita Rao, Mukesh Tiwari, Surendra Rajan, Saurabh Dubey, Kenny Desai, Sitaram Panchal, Bhaskar Chatterjee, Sunil Grover and others.

The screenplay was written by Rajkumar Santoshi, Piyush Mishra and Anjum Rajabali. It was edited by VN Mayekar. Songs for this movie were penned by Sameer and music was composed by AR Rehman.

All songs of this movie composed by AR Rehman are very very good and I liked them as they fill us with patriotic fervour and with a poignant touch, yet making us thoughtful on the life and times of the martyrs and their feelings for their motherland.

Today’s song is in two parts and is sung by AR Rehman and Sukhwinder Singh.

Let us listen to this wonderful song now …

Desh Mere Desh Mere Meri Jaan Hai Tu …

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
—————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 64# Singer – Kishore Kumar
———————————————–—————————-

In my opinion, Kishore Kumar’s voice reached a different and special plane altogether during late 1960s as compared to his voice prior to earlier years i.e. pre ‘Padosan'(1968) and ‘Aradhana’ (1969). He retained that “something special” in his voice for the rest of his career. His voice was at its ‘versatile peak’ during this phase of his career.

Kishore Kumar was popularly known as the voice of ‘Rajesh Khanna’ during 1970s, but he was also singing for most other actors, whether they were the established stars of the time or newcomers. Today’s song is one such special song. I became aware of this song only in September 2016.

It was during my stay at Nagpur that I had marked this song for presentation here on the blog. When I checked HFGK for this movie songs, I discovered that this song had two versions viz a ‘happy’ as well as ‘sad’. However, at that time only the sad version of this song was available, so I forwarded the movie link to my friend so that he could make the fast version of the song available in time for Holi of 2017. But somehow it did not materialize.

Later on, due to change in my job location it got further delayed. It was just about five weeks back that I requested our beloved Raja Saab to upload video of this song and he, as he always does, was kind enough to respond to my request and he has uploaded both the video versions of this song. (Thank you, Raja Saab, for the videos of both versions of this song). Meanwhile, I also discovered that audio of the ‘happy’ version was also available on YT.

This is a song celebrating ‘Holi’ – the festival of colors – and thus today on the occasion of ‘Holi’ let us enjoy this song from the ‘1975’ movie ‘Andhera’.

‘Andhera’ was directed by Tulsi Ramsay and Shyam Ramsay for their home production under the banner of Ramsay Films, Bombay. It was produced by F.U. Ramsay who also wrote the story of this movie. The star cast of this movie includes Sameer, Vani Ganpati, Surendra Kumar, Imtiaz, Helen, Satyen Kappu, Krishan Dhawan, Mukri, Dulari, Shekhar Purohit, Kumud Tripathi, Tuntun, Heeralal, Murad, Kukku, Arvind Pandya, Major Anand, Madhu, Habib, Moolchand, Seema Kapoor, Ashoo and others.

Dialogues for this movie were written by Kafeel Azar. Shyam Ramsay was the Chief Assistant Editor and Arjun Ramsay was the Associate Director. Editing was done by Bal Korde. Kumar Ramsay was the Executive Producer for this movie and he also wrote the screenplay of this movie.

This movie has four songs. Lyrics for all these songs are penned by Gulshan Bawra. Music for this movie is composed by Sonik-Omi. All the songs are solo songs; two by Kishore Kumar , and other two by Asha Bhonsle. Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and it has two versions ‘happy’and ‘sad’ (or fast and slow 🙂 ). More than the fast version I like the slow version and its tune grows up on one as one listens to it repeatedly

Let us now enjoy this song!!! With this song, ‘Andhera’ (1975) makes its debut in the blog.

Wishing all readers and members of this blog a very happy, peaceful, safe and colorful Holi 2018 …!!!

Blog Day : 3455 Post No. : 13859

hullo Atuldom

So, it is the new year. I have not made any resolutions, as usual, just taking life as it chooses to unfold itself. Anyway, it has always been my way of living. People who are connected with me on WhatsApp must have seen my status message- “Kal kya hoga kis ko pata” I also subscribe to the thought “abhi zindagi ka le lo mazaa”. (this is from a song by Gulshan Bawra)
My todays post is a song from the 1994 release “Aag” starring Govinda, Shilpa Shetty, Sonali Bendre (in a special appearance) with Kader Khan, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Shakti Kapoor, Goga Kapoor, Gulshan Grover, Suresh Chatwal etc. etc. in the supporting cast. This movie was directed by K. Ravi Shankar and released in August 1994. This was a change of image for Govinda in the sense that it had him play a serious character.

The story goes like this-

Orphaned at a very young age, Raju (Govinda) lives a poor lifestyle with his unmarried sister, Laxmi (Prajakta Kulkarni). Both are of marriageable age. One-day Raju meets an attractive fellow-collegian, Parul (Sonali Bendre), and after a few encounters both fall in love. But Parul’s uncle, has already arranged her marriage with Police Inspector Suryadev Singh (Shakti Kapoor). When Suryadev finds out that Parul is refusing to marry him, he arrests Raju on a charge of murder, holds him in jail, and beats him mercilessly.
Laxmi, quite dramatically, takes a gun from a policeman, and helps Raju escape so as to prevent Parul from being forcibly married to Suryadev. They do manage to arrive in time, only to find that Parul has consumed poison and killed herself. Raju is beside himself with rage, is captured by the police, and watches helplessly as Parul is cremated. His horrors have not ended as Suryadev sexually assault’s Laxmi and leaves her in a mentally unstable condition.

Raju takes Laxmi with him to a small village, where he hides her from other people as she has become visibly pregnant, and changes his name to Birju. He meets with a lovely village belle by the name of Bijli (Shilpa Shetty), who wants to marry him. What Raju does not know is that Bijli, the nautanki dancer, is a plainclothes policewoman, Inspector Barkha Sharma, who has been assigned to arrest him at any cost. She does confront him, and he confesses to killing Parul’s uncle and Barkha calls for reinforcements to escort Raju to jail. The Inspector-in-charge of the reinforcements is none other than Suryadev — and this time he is determined to finish Raju once and for all.

Now why did I pick up this movie and this particular raunchy song for posting today? Because we have our today’s birthday boy lip-syncing to singer Hariharan in it. No-no not Kader Khan, he has Sudesh Bhonsle singing for him. I am talking of Sadashiv Amrapurkar. Born on 2nd January 1950 in Ahmednagar Maharashtra he made his way to movies via theatre. His first film was Govind Nihalani’s “Ardh Satya” for which he won that year’s filmfare award for best supporting actor. In 1993 when filmfare added a category of best villain he won it for his act as “maharani” a eunuch in Mahesh Bhatt’s “Sadak”. 1993 saw him play inspector Pyare Mohan- a person who has a problem of forgetting things- in David Dhawan’s “Aankhen”. He showed he was good in comedy. Even in “Aag” along with Kader Khan he provided comic relief.

Today’s song shows how the all the gents of the village react when Bijli- the dancer- makes her entry into the village. We have Dinesh Hingoo, Suresh Chatwal and assorted villagers trying to entertain us in this song. Alka Yagnik sings for Shilpa Shetty, Sameer is the lyricist and Dilip Sen- Sameer Sen the music composers.

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.
