Today (9 july 2017) is the birth anniversary of Sanjeev Kumar (9 july 1938-6 november 1985), one of the true legendary actors of Hindi cinema.

Today, he would have been 79 – but sadly, he didn’t even get to live to the age of 50. He was just 47 when a heart attack took him away from this world, and from millions of his fans. Just like Guru Dutt (also coincidentally born on the 9th of July and who died way too early), Sanjeev Kumar’s death left a void in Hindi cinema.

Hullo to all Atulites

So let us have a song today(11 november 2016) to wish the Bengali/ Nepali beauty Mala Sinha on her 80th birthday. I don’t remember when was it that I became aware of this sweet smiled, doe eyed and talented actress. Must be when I saw a song where she was running around singing “Neeli aankh milalo ji, dil mein aaj chuppa lo jee” or singing “yaa allah yaa allah dil le gaya”. But I must have also seen her sing “chupke se dil dai de de nahin te shor mach jayega” alongwith our own Rajesh Khanna. She looked very cute and naughty in all these songs. Who can forget her say “hum moond ke palkon ko iss dil ko sazaa de toh”; or her “bade naa samajh ho yeh kya chahate ho”; looks like I can go on and on and on with my list of favourite Mala Sinha songs (didn’t know I knew so many!) But then she slowly graduated to roles of playing slightly senior characters not like Nirupa Roy or Indrani Mukherjee’s mother act but more like Asha Parekh or Waheeda Rehman’s wife of the senior hero who gets a song or two as in some of her 80s and 90s movies.

Hullo everyone

Here is a typical Kishore Kumar song. Combining with RD Burman he gives us a bhajan, qawwali and Hindustani classical all at one shot. Such a song has entertainment value and Kishore Kumar doesn’t disappoint (has he ever?) And there are very few Bollywood actors who can carry it off with equal gusto.

Here we have our very own Sanjeev Kumar giving a paisa vasool performance.

An out and out theatre person who seemed to have stepped on to the silver screen by accident. My first introduction to Dinesh Thakur was when I went to see a stage play in Delhi. I was in school, and the book-reading bug had bit me big time. I was devouring books by the dozen almost on a weekly basis. I got introduced to a wide variety of written genres and authors. In the midst of this, one stream was reading stage plays. Of course, started with the Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer’s Night Dream’ which was part of our English curriculum. I picked up books of plays written by western authors, and then also got interested in reading plays by Indian authors.

Sometimes you wonder why a song becomes a huge hit. And at other times, you wonder why a song doesn’t.

Today, as I write this post, I am left to ponder on why this song did not become as huge a hit as, in my opinion, it deserved to. The only explanation I can come up with is that the film tanked badly at the box office. And as we know, many a song has suffered purely because the film itself didn’t do well.

There was some speculation among regulars about the inactivity in the blog today despite it being a sunday. Someone felt that it was the long weekend effect.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 24
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ध’

“धीरे चल ज़रा, ओ पागल पुरवइय्या”

Vintage Rafi – that was my reaction on hearing this song, actually for the first time yesterday. And then I checked the other details, and find, this song is likely one the few very last songs that Rafi Sb would have recorded. This song comes from the 1980 vigilantes-and-robbers type story – ‘Hum Paanch’. As I chanced upon this song and started to play, my first feeling was – 1960s, or thereabouts.  The sedate rhythm and the soft rendition, gives that charmed old world feeling of the golden era. Just that the picturization visual in the video clip gives one the clue that this song is much later than 1960s.
