Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 11

‘ख’
“खुली वादियों का सफर है”

Yesterday, 24th February, a living legend of Indian cinema turned 88.  From his pen have come such haunting songs as “Kho Diye, Hain Sanam, Teri Talaash Mein, Pichhle Kai Janam” (‘Teri Talaash Mein’, 1968), “Kai Sadiyon Se, Kai Janmon Se” (‘Milaap’, 1972), and such songs of love as “Main To Har Mod Par Us Ko Doonga Sadaa” (‘Chetna’, 1970), “Phir Milengi Kahaan, Aisi Tanhaaiyaan”, (‘Bhaavna’, 1972), “Har Janam Mein Hamaara Milan” (‘Kaagaz Ki Naao’, 1975), and “Tumhe Ho Na Ho, Mujhko To, Itna Yakeen Hai” (‘Gharonda’, 1977). Starting his film career with the film ‘Jaggu’ in 1952, this poet of the off beat continues to be active on both the big and small screens.

Wishing a very happy birth anniversary to Naqsh Lyallpuri, and also wishing him many more healthy and poetical years still to come.

‘ऐ’
“ऐ जान ए बहारां रूह ए चमन”

Truly vintage Rafi. A song that brings to mind the times and the era of gentle romancing, and the soft songs of love. In the voice of Rafi Sb, these songs carry a heartfelt emotion that conveys a genuine feeling of love. It is a wonder that this song has so far not made it to the blog already.

Deven Verma, the Actor-Comedienne-Producer-Director was 77 when he passed away last year. Unbelievable that it’s a whole year since then. How time flies but certain voids are never filled.

This is her 100th writeup in the blog.

Exactly a year ago I had written out the lyrics for a song from “Uljhan” . The post to that was done by our Sudhirji. I am hundred percent sure that I couldn’t have done such a good post. In there he had mentioned that is was 29 years since Harihar Jethalal Zariwaala aka Sanjeev Kumar aka Hari Bhai left us. How soon one year has passed and it is now the 30th anniversary of this “switch on, switch off actor”. (I have borrowed this term from Sudhirji’s write up.)

Festivals are integral part of our culture and traditions. And the films, songs associated with mythological themes, festivals are integral part of nostalgia of music lovers like me and those who grew up listening such songs in their respective ‘formative years’ of life.

Waqt ki Deewar (1981) starred today’s birthday girl Sulakshana Pandit and birthday boy Sanjeev Kumar as the romantic pair. The other pair being Jeetendra with Neetu Singh (yesterday’s birthday gal). The supporting cast included Pran-Kadar Khan- Amjad Khan-Satyen Kappu-Preeti Ganguly-Paintal etc. {What a support system} The movie was directed by Ravi Tandon; T C Dewan was the producer, Laxmi Pyare were the music directors and Anjaan the lyricist. The movie was a typical run-of-the mill LOST AND FOUND drama where the heroes Munna and Vikram get separated after their mother’s death. One of them becomes a conman the other is looked after by Pran and becomes a police inspector (how original). Through the movie their paths keep crossing but they are unaware of each other’s identity till the last half an hour of the movie. Poor chaps!! But the movie makes us sit through close to two and half hours by which time Pran dies in making the two understand that they are brothers, the brothers find their father (Kader Khan) and their love interests. All izz well in the end.

Today (9 july 2015) is the 77th birth anniversary of Sanjeev Kumar (9 July 1938 – 6 November 1985). In a movie world where most actors were afraid of playing roles other than the ones they were typed cast in, Sanjeev Kumar would play any kind of roles, without worrying about his past image as an actor. He would play the roles that other heroes would not touch with a barge pole, and he would carry them off with aplomb. He had played roles of mentally challenged man (in Khilona-1970), Deaf and dumb (in Koshish), father of an actor older than him (father of Shashi Kapoor in Trishul), Husband, father as well as father in law of the same actress (Jaya Bhaduri) in different movies, etc. And I have not yet mentioned his role of Thakur in Sholay (1975). In “Naya Din Nayi Raat”, he played nine roles !

In brief, Sanjeev Kumar was an actor who never allowed himself to be typedcast. He accepted any kinds of roles, not worrying how that role was going to affect his image. And he came up with flying colours in all these roles.
