Hullo Atuldom

This post is courtesy my youngest sister. We were on this telephonic chat and she was asking me about my new hobby/addiction and how it is coming by. In the conversation she mentioned about the how she appreciated Dilip Kumar in the song”Nain Lad Jaihe To Manwaa Maa Kasak Hoibe Kari” – his dancing to be more exact. She spoke about how the dance was almost continuous like a single shot song. And my reply to her was that the song from “Jewel Thief”Hothon  Mein Aisi Baat Main Dabaa Ke Chali Aayi” is an ideal example of a song in a single-shot and how Vyjayanthimala has danced and cameras were strategically placed to catch every movement and moment. To this my sister replied that being a trained classical dancer it would not have been so difficult for Vyjayanthimala but see Dilip Kumar dance in ‘Ganga Jamna’.

Now the Dilip Kumar dance I have been seeing from time immemorial and it is one of the songs on my personal favorites list. But after speaking to my sister, I saw the song again just before I started this post. Even if it is not a single shot-song, the choreography makes it seem so. There is a flow in the movements and actions from one frame to the other and the end result is one amazing continuous dance-song.

What the morning conversation did was it reminded me of another song that is nearly like the Dilip Kumar song viz. the choreography makes it feel that the artists have danced seamlessly, without any cuts between shots. This is the handiwork of Farah Khan. It is from the 2004 released ‘Main Hoon Na’ that is produced by Gauri Khan (Red Chillies Entertainment) and Ratan Jain (Venus Records and Tapes) and directed by Farah khan. It has a small star cast consisting of Naseeruddin Shah (special appearance), Kabir Bedi (special appearance), Suniel Shetty (in a negative role), Satish Shah, Kiron Kher, Boman Irani (forgetful principal), and Sushmita Sen, Amrita Rao, Sharukh Khan and Zayed Khan. Plus there are Rakhi Sawant, Tabu and Sajid Khan (Farah’s brother) in blink and miss roles.

The songs are written by Javed Akhtar and Anu Malik is the music director. It was nominated for a few awards in that year and won the Filmfare Award for best music. Shreya Ghoshal, Sonu Nigam, Abhijeet, KK, Vasundhara Das, Alka Yagnik, Sunidhi Chauhan and the Sabri Brothers – Hashim and Aftab, are the voices that have sung in this film. Even Anu Malik sang a song in the film. Today’s song is in the voices of KK and Vasundhara Das.

We shall have this song today to wish Farah Khan on turning a year older. She had made her debut in films as dance director in 1992 with ‘Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar’ with the brilliantly picturised “Pehla Nasha Pehla Khumar” which had Aamir Khan prancing on the slopes of the Nilgiris in Ooty. She has since choreographed dance routines for about a 100 songs in 80 movies. She turned director with ‘Main Hoon Na’ and producer with ‘Joker’ (in 2012) which was directed by her husband Shirish Kunder. She has been in front of the camera in films right from 1995 as a person among the crowd etc. and she had a formal full length role in ‘Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi’ (2012) where she was romantic lead pair with Boman Irani and her aunt Daisy Irani played her to-be mother-in-law. Of course she has made it a practice to get her whole crew in front of the camera, along with the end-titles, in all the films that she has directed.

A very Happy Birthday to this multi-talented personality who comes from a family of artists who have been in Bollywood since the late ’50s – her maternal aunts are Honey and Daisy Irani, her father Kamran Khan was a stuntman-turned-filmmaker, Javed Akhtar is her maternal aunt’s ex-husband, so that makes Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar (filmmakers) her cousins.

55th birthday of A. R. Rehman
———————————————————–

A. R. Rehman – The musician of 21st century – 1
———————————————————–

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field. I will meet you there. – Rumi

Some years ago, I received a Whatsapp forward featuring a sketch with Rumi’s character, in a 21st century setting. This requires careful description, so you all please be patient with me.

There he was, 13th century persian poet and philosopher, Jalaludding Rumi, turban and all, sitting on one end of a small primitive boat. A boat that fits in a New York apartment’s living room. Guess who is doing the honors of ‘Chappu chalauing’ at the other end of the boat? It was Chandler, of ‘Friends’ fame. Imagine a boat on the floor of a city living room, at one end Chandler is roving the boat and Rumi is sitting on the other end. The caption with it, also in 21st century English, read “When you are looking for a Roomie and misspell it!”

Ha Ha Ha Ha. If no one is laughing, I have only myself to blame for thinking of Rumi. “ham wahan hain jahan se ham ko bhi kuchh hamaari khabar nahi aati”

I have been exposed to some episodes of ‘Friends’, so identifying Chandler was the easy bit in the caricature. I could connect, the word “Roomie” to Rumi after some deliberation, but never having seen Rumi, or his picture or sketch, I was wondering who is the peasant in the boat. And what is a boat doing in the living room? It transpired that Rumi had arrived in his boat in response to the ad posted by Chandler for a roomie, as he misspelt it as Rumi. Since in Rumi’s time the preferred mode of transport was a boat, Persia is sure to have been full of rivers. Or canals, like Venice.

But I quite liked the idea of a boat in the living room. I did contemplate, on a real-life boat, the size of a two-three seater sofa, which was available for sale in a handicraft shop in Alleppy, Kerela. I could not figure out a way of transporting it to Mumbai, so had to drop the idea. I have a few embellished display size boats, but it is not the same. Now, after writing all this, I am thinking I should make another attempt at it.

At least a boat is doable, but imagine if someone is fond of trains, how will they get them in the living room. Trains are good for travelling, they take you from Point A to Point B, that is their usefulness. I have seen a train on the dining table with tracks and all, for movement of serving dishes, somewhere in a museum, probably. Now that is nice idea, if the kitchen is next of the dining section, a train can be made and for variety, a tunnel or two can added in the landscape. My imagination is running away with me.

I have finally arrived at the destination point, i. e. a train song. An iconic song for our generation of movie goers. A sufiana song written by Gulzar and composed by A. R. Rehman for Dil Se(1998). Singers are Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi. There is a lot of trivia available here about this song. There is this page too, which states that this song and video was at 9th position in the poll for top 10 all time songs, for which people from 55 countries voted. This poll was conducted by BBC world service.

The original composition of a solo by Sukhwinder Singh titled “Thaiyya thaiya” is also part of the movie’s song track, though it was not used in the film. The song begin with the lines “Eid aayi mera yaar nayi aaya”, but it is actually based on Bulle Shah’s “Tere ishq nachaya kar thhaiya thhaiya”. The version is mostly in Punjabi, with the same tune. So, I thought maybe that should be treated as a separate song.

These films songs are among the best of A. R. Rehman, Gulzar and Lata Mangeshkar. And they will be the best of Udit Narayan & Mahalaxmi Iyer(Aye Ajnabi), Sonu Nigam & Kavita Krishnamurthy(tu hi tu satragi re), Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi(Chhaiyya chhaiyya).

The song becomes iconic due to its picturization of a group of dancers, with Shah Rukh Khan and Malaika Arora, dancing atop a running train. It is shot in location of Ooty. This is also the best of Farah Khan’s choreography. This is among the first few outdoorsy songs I shortlisted for posting in the blog.

Gulzar sahab is talking of ‘Jannat’ and ‘Firdaus’, which means Paradise. ‘Gulposh is invisible, kaayenaat is universe, Taaveez is talisman, ‘aayat’ is sentence/verse(scholars say ‘aayat’ in the quranic context are niether sentence nor verse, it is an entirely different unit of deliverance) of Al-Quran which are in Arabic. What Gulzar sahab may mean in this line ‘mera naghma wahi mera kalma wahi’, is that ishq as a philosophy is my song, my first and last word.

wo yaar hai jo khushboo ki tarah
jis ki zubaan urdu ki tarah

The first thought the word ‘Urdu’ invokes in the minds of Urdudaan as well as non-urdudaan, is its sweetness (Shireen) and cultured-ness(muhazzib). These two things ‘shireeni’ and ‘tehzeeb’ go hand in hand and are two sides of the same coin. This literally means, the object of ishq is anything that has flagrant aura and talks speaks and sings with a sweetness. Fragrance is a thing which is also pure, clean and invisible. Sincerity and unpretentiousness, plus a sweet way of conduct and speech is:

Meri shaam raat
Meri kaayenaat

Shaam is a time of relaxation and liesure and raat is for resting. ‘Kaayenaat’ is my ‘universe of abundance’. So there goes, if the object of my ishq is, the highest ideals of sincerity and good conduct, then it will be my contentment and happiness for which sky in the limit. Is this the salvation and moksh in this life?

Saare ishq ki chhaaon chale chhainyya chhainya
Paaon jannat chale chale chal chhainyya chhainyya

And

Jin ke sar ho ishq ki chhaaon
Paaon ke neeche jannat hogi

They both mean the same, that those who live under the shade of such an ishq, heaven/paradise is theirs.

Remembering Jalaluddin Rumi and his philosophy is eventually justified by Gulzar sahab’s this master piece. Maybe the quote is the wrong one, the correct one is this:

“There is no salvation for the soul but to fall in love. Only lovers can escape out of these two worlds.” – Rumi

I have been thinking for sometime now that there so many iconic songs composed by ARR, that a garland or a necklace of these gems can be made. So I have chosen myself to do this series. The first episode is this song, starting on the birthday of ARR. I have done a few posts of his songs in the blog earlier for songs of ‘lagan’ ‘zubieda’ ‘sapney’ etc. This is by far an ambitious series for me to undertake, as it is very difficult to fit theses gems in a particular form to complete a cohesive design of the necklace. I will play by the ear, and God willing try to complete this series in 2022.

Hullo Atuldom

Recently, last five years to be exact, November 2nd has been added to the dates for which I feel compelled to write a post. These were the posts from the last Five years

Dates Song
2 November 2016 Dil aashna hai jigar aashna hai
2 November 2017 Taak dhin dhin taak dhin dhin dhin
2 November 2018 Jaata hai tu kahaan
2 November 2019 Aashiq hoon main qaatil bhi hoon
2 November 2020 Katthai aankhon waali ek ladki

November 2nd became an important date in the calendar for Atuldom when we discovered that a very dear Atulite has his birthday on this date. He used to be a very active member of Atuldom. But has been missing from action since the last four months- his last post on the blog was on July 19, 2021. He has contributed 1407 posts to the blog (the highest by a guest poster on ASAD), enriched 137 posts by contributing lyrics for them, plus he has added Devnagari lyrics to 1414 posts. Most importantly all his posts have lyrics in both Devnagari and the Roman script. He is a treasure house of information and has connections to collectors of music and vinyl records of music from all eras and is competent in locating rare gems when requested by followers of the blog.

Of course his journey on the blog began like all other followers (correct me if I am wrong Sudhirji) landing on Atulsongaday in search of some song, liking the premise of the blog and staying glued to it forever. He went a step further when he became Atulji’s aide and shared the task of posting songs on the blog, which actually helped on days when Atulji was busy with earthly responsibilities.

Here is wishing our very own Dilldaar Dilliwala “Many More Happy returns of the day”.

For this post I propose that we have a song from the 26th October 2001 released, Santosh Sivan directed and Gauri Khan/ Juhi Chawla produced ‘Asoka’. It had a starcast headed by Kareena Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, Danny, Ajith Kumar (the southern star), Gerson Da Cunha (Adman, Stage & media personality), Umesh Mehra (the producer/ director of films like ‘Guru’, ‘Ashanthi’, ‘Mujrim’ etc.) along with Subhashini Ali, Hrishita Bhatt, Rahul Dev etc. The music was composed by Anu Malik; Gulzar and Anand Bakshi are credited as lyricists (must be the only time these two featured as lyricists in the same film). The vocals of Alka Yagnik, Abhijeet, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shaan, K.S. Chitra, Hema Sardesai can be heard in the songs.

Here is a melodious song from the movie which is filmed on another Dilliwala -SRK who also has his birthday today with Anu Malik the music composer also celebrating his birthday. This post which celebrates three birthdays is sung by a person whose birthday was on 30th October- Abhijeet. The female voice is of Alka Yagnik.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Sudhirji with this song penned by Gulzar.

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part LVII: Year 2004
———————————————————————————————————

In this episode, the 57th episode, we were supposed to discuss Lata Mangeshkar songs that she sang in Hindi movies released in 2003, seeing that previous episode covered songs that she sang in 2002.

It turns out that Lata Mangeshkar did not sing any songs in movies released during 2003. So 2003 was the first year after 1945, when Lata Mangeshkar did not sing any songs in Hindi movies. So we needed to move on to the next year viz 2004. Even in that year, we were drawing a blank, till we reached the alphabet V. “Veer Zaara”(2004) turned out to be the only movie of 2004 where Lata Mangeshkar sang songs. She sang as many as 9 songs in this movie. 90 Hindi movies containing 632 songs were released uring 2004. So Lata Mangeshkar got to sing in 1.1 % of these movies and she sang 1.4 % of songs in these movies. So her era almost drew to a close after ruling the roost for more than six decades.

Here are the details of songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Hindi movies released in 2004 :-

S N Movie Music director Lata song in the blog Lata HFM songs recorded in the year Lata solo songs Male duet Female duet Other songs Lyricists
1 Veer Zaara Madan Mohan 3 9 2 4 0 3 Javed Akhtar
Total 1 movie 1 MD 3 9 2 4 0 3 1 lyricist

Lata Mangeshkar worked with 1 music director and 1 lyricist in this one movie released in 2004. Madan Mohan had passed away in 1975, but his unused tunes, which his son had in his possession, were used for this movie, crediting Madan Mohan as the music director.

Laxmikant Pyarelal were the most prolific music directors with Lata, with 664 songs in HFM with Lata Mangeshkar by the end of 2002. Shankar Jaikishan with 457 songs in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar were in the second position. R D Burman with 332 Lata Mangeshkar and Kalyanji Anandji with 307 songs were next ahead of C Ramchandra with 275 songs. Other top music directors for Lata Mangeshkar were Chitragupta (239), Madan Mohan (204), S D Burman (179),Naushad (146), Roshan (144), Hemant Kumar (127), Anil Biswas (120), Bappi Lahiri (112), Rajesh Roshan (111), Salil Chaudhary (109), Husnlal Bhagatram (108), and Vasant Desai (104). Together these seventeen music directors composed 3742 songs out of 5234 songs that Lata Mangeshkar had sung in Hindi movies till end of 2004. Anand Bakshi with 731 songs was the top lyricist with Lata Mangeshkar. Other leading lyricists with Lata Mangeshkar were Rajinder Krishan (555), Majrooh Sultanpuri (407), Shailendra (361), Hasrat Jaipuri (301), Prem Dhawan (201), Bharat Vyas (193), Shakeel Badayuni (189), Sahir Ludhianvi (161) and Indeewar (156). These ten lyricists had penned 3252 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar till that time.

Here is the summary of Lata Mangeshkar’s playback career in Hindi movies till end of 2004 :

It can be seen from the table of 1995 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 8 songs in 4 movies released in 1995.

1 song sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1995 has been covered in the blog. That leaves us with 7 songs from 4 movies of 1995 that are yet to be covered.

Alphabetically “Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge”(1995) is the first movie of 1995 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge”(1995) was produced by Yash Chopra and directed by Aditya Chopra for Yashraj Films, Bombay. The movie had Amrish Puri, Farida Jalal, Anupam Kher, Kajol, Shahrukh Khan, Parmeet Sethi, Mandira Bedi, Karan Johar, Satish Shah, Achala Sachdev, Himani Shivipuri, Pooja Ruparel, Lalit Tiwari, Damayanti Puri, Hemlata Deepak, Arjun Sablok, Anaita Shroff, Pallavi Vyas, Tulika Tripathi, Rajesh Bhatija, Shanker Iyer, Mohit Kumar, Govind Khatri,Mansoor Merchant, etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four of these songs had the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in them. Two songs from the movie, including One Lata Mangeshkar song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second Lata Mangeshkar song from “Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge”(1995) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Jatin Lalit.

The song is lip synced by Kajol. But before that, the song also shows Shahrukh Khan playing Rugly in England. Overall, the song showcases picturesque locations and sites of England. Farida Jalal and Karan Johar are also visible in the picturisation.

This youthful joie de vivre song is picturised on a 20 year old Kajol (Born 5 August 1974). Lata Mangeshkar at that time was thrice her age ! Lata Mangeshkar had in the past sung for Kajol’s mother (Tanuja). She reputedly even sang for Kajol’s grandmother Shobhana Samarth (or at least sang in a movie – Narsinh Avtaar -1949, where Shobhana Samarth was the leading lady). What longevity ! And she managed to sound youthful even at a age when she was already a senior citizen !

Lyrics of the song and other details have been sent by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

4648 Post No. : 16312

Every few years or so, we have people proudly posting the photographs of their fingers with indelible ink in it, as proof of having voted in a parliament election or an assembly election. 🙂

These days, we have a non recurring once in a century occurrence taking place, namely Covid 19 vaccination. The process of this covid vaccination in India is very much comparable to the process of parliamentary general election. People are getting themslves vaccinated, and posting photos of their vaccination on their social media accounts. 🙂

India has two kinds of vaccines that are approved for vaccination. One is covishield (manufactured by Serum Institute of India Pune) and another is Covaxin (manufactured by Bharat Biotech, Hyderabad)

Both vaccines got the approval of India’s Central Drugs and Standards Committee (CDSCO) for emergency use on 3 january 2021 after they completed their various phases of trials.

Serum Institute of India has the largest capacity in the entire world for producing vaccines. Its vaccine Covishield was based on the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine developed in UK whereas Covaxin of Bharat Biotec was an indigenously developed vaccine. The capacity of Serum Institute of India is much higher than that of Bharat Biotech. Covishield vaccine was even offered by Government of India to some friendly countries. As on date, more than 80 countries have received consignments of Covishield vaccine, in a Government of India initiative dubbed as “Vaccine Maitri”. This initiative has won India tremendous goodwill worldwide. Some countries offered profuse thanks to India and Indian government for this gesture.

SII was manufacturing 65-70 million doses in a month but that was not enough to meet the demands of India and other countries. It plans to enhance its capacity to 100 million doses in a month and for that it has sought Government help of Rs 3000 crores($453 millions).

Till today, 90% of all vaccination done in India is of Covishield. Other 10 % is of covaxin. As of now (8 april 2021), 8 crore 29 lakh Covishield vaccine doses and 82 lakh covaxin doses have been administered in India. In addition, 6 crore 45 lakh doses of Covishield have also been supplied to 85 different countries as grant, on commercial basis, and also under CEPI, GAVI, WHO and UNICEFs COVAX programme.

These vaccines have much less stringent low temperature requirement for storage compared to some other vaccines developed abroad. So These vaccines can be transported and stored in India using the existing cold chain logistical infrastructure. That way they are suitable for other less developed countries of the world as well.

Coming to Indian vaccination programme, Just like all adult (18 plus) Indian citizens are eligible to vote, all citizens of certain age group are eligible for free vaccination. Initially people in 60 plus age group were eligible. Certain category of people, like doctors, frontline workers etc, who were in the forefront of fighting this pandemic were also eligible irrespective of their age. Beginning from 1 april 2021, all Indian citizens above the age of 45 are eligible. This will cover about 40 crore Indian citizens (out of 130 crore population).

My wife and daughter belonged to the category of medical personnel and so both of them were eligible for their doses of vaccination. Both of them got their two doses of vaccination before the end of march 2021.

I was not eligible. Some 45 to 59 years age group people who had comorbidities (viz serious health conditions) too were eligible before 1 april 2021 for vaccination on production of doctor’s report and many people of this age group got themselves vaccinated making use of this provision even when some of them had no comorbidities. My wife asked me to get myself vaccinated, as did our daughter, but I insisted that I was not eligible. I rejected my wife’s insinuation that I had hypertension and therefore comorbidity. 🙂

However, from 1 april 2021, I too became eligible for vaccination. My wife and daughter were in any case pestering me for that. The nearest hospital where vaccination was being administered was at NE Railway main hospital located near my workplace. I found out that the vaccination time was from 9:30 to 10 AM or so. I arrived at the place. I was under the impression (based on erroneous media reports) that there would be very small number of people and the medical staff would be sitting idle waiting for people to come. I was mistaken. There was a big crowd of people. So there were so many people interesting in vaccination, unlike what some media houses were trying to portray. I collected the form and filled it up. Though there was a good crowd, it thinned out by the time it was 10:30. I came to know that a limited number of doses are brought from the local state government cold storage that had to be consumed on the same day. There is no method of getting the supply replenished on the same day. 68 number of doses were allotted to the hospital on that day and they got used up within one hour.

I wondered how I was going to be able to get myself vaccinated if this was the state of affairs. The problem was, I was trying to avail the vaccination facility like a common man, standing in a queue, whereas I should have done it like a VIP, which I was for the Railway hospital, seeing that I headed the Railway workshop that employed 60% of all Railway employees based in Gorakhpur. My workplace was easily the biggest industrial workplace in Gorakhpur.

The next day of vaccination in the hospital was 5 april 2021, viz the next monday. This time I took no chances and asked my steno to phone up the doctor incharge of vaccination informing him that I would like to get vaccinated on that day. I went there, through the doctor’s entrance rather than the public entrance, which I was told was jampacked. My workplace has a small health unit headed by a lady doctor and she too was available there to make fuss over me-“hato hato saahab aaye hain”, getting the doctor incharge of vaccination to come and greet me etc. and in general to get my vaccination fast tracked. I had already filled up my form the previous day itself. As ID proof, I had attached my Aadhaar Card. That data gets filled in a computer, which verifies the Aadhaar card from UIDAI site. That done, the lady doctor made sure that I was the first person of the day to get vaccinated. 🙂

The vaccinated people are supposed to stay there for half an hour under observation to see that no adverse effect takes place on them. I did not feel any adverse effect, so I informed the lady doctor and left for the workplace. From there I informed my wife and daughter that I had taken my first dose. My daughter asked me to immediately take one tablet of paracetomol then and another tablet in the evening. But I am not feeling any ill effects, I protested. Still my daughter ordered me to take one tablet immediately which I duly did.

I realised after some time that I did not get the vaccination certificate that my wife and daughter had got. I thought that I would be able to get it using my Aadhaar Card number and registered mobile number. I was not far off in my guess but I also needed another information, viz Beneficiary Reference ID, which gets generated during registration at the vaccination centre. I asked my steno to find out this Beneficiary Reference ID. The steno found it out and even downloaded my Vaccination certificate on a nice photographic paper and presented in to me. So I had my vaccination certificate at hand. Later I downloaded a pdf copy on my mobile too and shared it with my wife and daughter.

This certificate is a miracle of Digital India initiative.It gives everyone a clearcut and foolproof, fully traceable, six sigma quality documentation of the progress of vaccination in the country. The details of all vaccination get updated in real time and they then figure in the live figures of vaccination at the site named cowin.gov.in.

The vaccination certificate has all the relevant details one can think of namely beneficiary details (name, age, gender, ID verification details, residence) and also vaccination details (name of vaccine, date of dose, next due date, vaccinated by, and place of vaccination). The certificate also had a machine readable bar code.

VaccineCertificate

When one looks at the vaccine certificate of USA (left in the picture above), technologically the most advanced nation on earth, one finds that their vaccine certificate is quite amateurish and that can be easily manipulated and forged. Their certificate will not pass muster as a legally valid document as it hardly contains any details, just name, vaccine name and date, and an illegible signature. That is all. There is no unique ID (say Social security number) mentioned in the certificate. Israeli certificate (right on the picture above)on the other hand is professionally made, as is expected of them.

I have mentioned earlier that many media houses, and also political parties are trying disinformation campaigns about the vaccines. There are many less informed people who fall prey to such malicious disinformation campaign. One school friend of my daughter phoned her. Her father had fallen prey to one such youtube video and he was refusing to listen to anyone and he would not get himself vaccinated. Would my daughter try to convince him ? How could I, if you and your mother couldnot, but let me try- my daughter replied. So my daughter was connected on phone to her old friend’s father. He stated that this youtube uploader has given such gory details about the process of vaccine manufacture that no one with a conscious could ever get these vaccines. My daughter asked him to get the credentials of this video uploader verified on wikipedia etc. Was he a qualified medical practitioner or belonged to pharma industry ? If not then his facts were imaginary, she informed him. But the Indian vaccines have been develoed in just two months, so these vaccines are fake as informed by this uploader- he stated. My daughter advised him about the vaccine development stages, that there are five stages, each stage is stringent. Initally tests are conducted on animals, then on humans, then the vaccines get certified by a regulatory agency. All this has taken nearly a year. The covishield vaccine has been certified fit for use in several countries, and not just India. In any case, this vaccine is developed not in India, but in UK, and India is only producing it under license, my daughter informed him.

Two days later, my daughter’s friend phoned again, and thanked my daughter profusely. After my daughter’s talk, her father had checked up on the credentials of the youtube uploader and had realised that he was unqualified to discuss this matter. He also realised that the vaccines had passed all the stages that vaccines are required to pass. So he had gone to the nearest vaccine center and had got himself vaccinated. That way, my daughter may have helped bring peace and harmony to the disturbed household of her old school friend. I felt quite proud of my daughter. It means she has the ability to convince others, which is a good ability to have for anyone.

The fact that India is self reliant in covid vaccines and is even in a position to export it to half the countries of the world is a matter of great pride for all Indians. This has been made possible by those Indians ho have lived in India and have tried to make a difference in the country. For instance, Serum Institute of India and Bharat Biotec are doing cutting edge work in their field. On this occasion of natinal and international emergency they have risen to the challenge and are helping the country fight this pandemic with confidence.

On this occasion, here is a song that catches the same feeling of national pride. This song is from “Swades”(2004). The song is sung and composed by A R Rahman. Javed Akhtar is the lyricist. This song plays in the background, hich the picturisation shows Shahrukh Khan, playing an NRI working in NASA dying to come back to India and give back to the nation. A very moving and inspirational song indeed !

Hullo Atuldom

“Duplicate” (release date 8/5/1998) was a movie that we went to see as a family because it had Shahrukh Khan in the lead. Those were times when we used to pick-and-choose movies which had decent or fun songs and some actor of our liking and we could take the children along. Thus we ended up seeing this ‘not-so-great’ story-wise film which was produced by Yash Johar and directed by Mahesh Bhatt. It had music by Anu Malik and lyrics were by Javed Akhtar. Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Udit Narayan and Shankar Mahadevan were the singers used. This was one of the cassette tapes that I had purchased as the kids loved its songs. Personally speaking, I enjoyed the movie as it was inane, illogical and simply masaledaar Bollywood stuff. The kind which helps us to forget ourselves during the duration of its screening.

This was Shahrukh’s first double role movie (1996 had seen him play a triple role in “English Babu Desi Mem”, but the characters he played didn’t share screen space) where he played a bumbling youngman out to get a job as a top chef in a big 5-star hotel. The other SRK was a gangster on the run. The movie opens with Manu, the gangster, trying to hoodwink the cops with the help of his girlfriend Lily (Sonali Bendre). Juhi Chawla plays Sonia Kapoor, a hotel HR Manager, who bumps into Babloo (chef SRK) when they get into the same Taxi (from different sides of course) and end up bickering about who had hailed the cab etc. The cab driver mediates and suggests that they share the fare as the destination is same- the hotel where Babloo has an interview to attend. The ride to the hotel is peppered with Babloo rehearsing for the interview and Sonia and the driver enjoying themselves. The highlight of the scene is when Babloo declares his goals in life which includes “feeding his girlfriend VADAPAV that he will make in the 5-star kitchen”. (I hope I am exact at this, Peevesie).

We had Farida Jalal playing Babloo’s mother who is disappointed with his career choice as her aim was to make him a wrestler like his father. The movie also has a sprinkling of supporting actors – Tiku Talsania whose aim is to nab Manu, Gulshan Grover playing the badman character, Sharat Saxena, Kunal Vijaykar etc. There is a guest appearance by Kajol (though I don’t recall much about that).

The songs were all fun to watch but there was one really lyrical song in the album which had Javed Akhtar at his romantic best (for this movie).This is the song with which the movie is making its debut on the blog today.

I would love it if the birthday boy would care to explain a few words of this song. I am hinting at our Dilldaar Dilliwala -Sudhirji. Last year I had wished that he didn’t run out of ‘ideas for posts and series’ and he came up with a “this week that year” series that is essentially analyzing the blog for that week 10 years ago. We are missing it for the last month and half Sirji!!! 🙂 We want more of it -‘Yeh dil maange more’.

It also happens to be Shahrukh Khan’s birthday today as also Anu Malik’s. One has ruled the hearts of his fans with his acting and the other has given songs that make the fans dance. One was born into the industry but worked his way up the ranks. The other had no filmy connection but still has had a good to very good career graph. The melodies that this team has dished out are mostly successful.

Cannot forget “kiska hai yeh tumko intezaar main hoon na” (Main Hoon Na); “ae mere humsafar ae meri jaan-e-jaan” and “yeh kaali kaali aankhen” (Baazigar); “apun bola tu meri laila” (Josh); “iss pyaar se meri taraf na dekho pyaar ho jaayega” (Chamatkar); oh there are numerous songs of this jodi that will feature in my playlist.

Anu Malik made his debut in 1977 and SRK made his debut first on Doordarshan in 1988 before Hema Malini signed him on for “Dil Aashna Hain” but his first release was “Deewana”. Both the movies had Divya Bharati as his heroine. then we had a deluge where we saw him in “Chamatkar” (first with Anu Malik as music director), “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” (first of many with Juhi Chawla), “Baazigar” (again Anu Malik and first with Kajol),etc. etc. He was given the Filmfare award for best actor for his anti-hero role in “Baazigar”. He has won awards as many as 14 Filmfare awards of which 8 are as best actor. He was awarded the Padma Shri in 2005.

Talking of Anu Malik, his father was the music director of the ’50s and ’60s. Recently I have subscribed to a channel which show evergreen classics along with programs like Sunheri Yaadein, Sitaaron Ka Caravan etc. One such treasure house program is Anmol Yaadein where in the host was interviewing Anu Malik. I saw Anu mention therein, that Sardar Malik was married to the sister of Hasrat Jaipuri. So as a child Anu, who was a fan of Shankar Jaikishan, used to pester his mama to take him along to the recordings where SJ were at work. Anu managed to meet his favourite composers through his mama (uncle Hasrat Jaipuri) and also play some music to them. Anu goes on to say that the legendary duo were impressed with Anu’s comfort when playing the Harmonium and he took it as their blessing for his future. He has worked with almost all lead singers of Bollywood starting with Manna Dey to many of the current day singers. He has been a judge on many Television shows.

Today’s song is in the voice of Kumar Sanu. It is filmed in the picturesque locales of Switzerland. In fact the church shown in this song is a famous attraction for Indian tourists and I recollect our tour operator making special mention of it as “the church where SRK has romanced a few heroines” mainly Kajol in DDLJ. This movie was not popular I suppose, or even this would have been mentioned.

Another thing which I would like to point out is the prominent use of the Tabla – Anu Malik’s favoured percussion instrument. It is used very nicely in the antara.

BTW I would love to know what is the meaning of “Katthai aankhon wali” as far as I understand the language ‘Kattha ‘ goes with ‘choona and supari’ in Paan (betel leaf).
Editors note:- (Katthai is the colour of katthai, viz bronish, so “katthai aankhon waali” means “browned eyed”.

Here is wishing our fellow Atulite a Very Very happy Birthday Sudhirji. In addition wishing the Bollywood jodi of Anu Malik and Shahrukh Khan on their birthday.

This is one of the songs of which made an impact at the time of watching the film.  I had seen this film ‘Phir bhi dil hai Hindustani’ in theatre.  This was before the multiplexes, so there were only the theatres, where the folks went to see the movie.

Now in multiplexes which are always above malls, there is the added temptation of shopping. This must be the reason, my husband is so reluctant to go to watch a movie. Over the last few years, I have also lost all interest in watching movies, altogether. As a weekend approaches, I am thinking I want to see this film or that film.  Some of those I have seen earlier or some which I have never seen. But the weekend comes and goes, without my attempting to watch them. There must be lot of reasons for this lack of motivation. For almost two months now, a 2017 movie’s link is sitting in the browser, but I have not watched it. Recently I even got my old laptop working so that I could watch some of the long pending movies and dramas. I saw a rerun of a few dramas, but new ones I am very reluctant to start. Sometimes I feel that there is a reluctance in me, to see newer things, which may supersede what has been seen earlier. It is strange, but there.

The film ‘Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani’ (2000) is a movie worth seeing or even revisiting for some of us who have seen it. Or the reviews of the film on the IMDB site make us believe. What I remember of the film is that SRK and Juhi are both television news presenters, and there is a lot of comic situations and romantic songs. Eventually they get embroiled in a nexus of politicians with the owners of the media channels, for whom they work. The song which is most endearing in the film is the title song “Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani“.  I had a general idea that the movie was ahead of its time and relevant to the electronic media’s role in the hyperbola of fear psychosis, that seems to surface every now and then.  I wrote about the role of media as a pawn in creation of propaganda in my essay ‘Corruption- A Global Phenomena’ in my post for the song “Apne Haathon Ko Pehchaan” from the 1960 film ‘Apna Haath Jagannath’.

Just recently I remembered the title song, looked for it and saw some other songs of the film including the group song which is the present post. The singers team is the old and trusted one, Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik with chorus. The song is very catchy and relevant to the party scene happening in the film. Reminds me of another song by the duo from ‘Yuvraj’ (2008) – “Mast Mast Dar Mastam“.

As I didn’t remember much about the film, and possibility of watching it soon is also remote, I visited the IMDB page.  The movie synopsis given there is quite lengthy and complicated.  Better to turn to reviews of which there are plenty.  Some of the reviews which were brief, I am reproducing here.

“This movie was way ahead of it’s time. . . and is highly underrated”

=====

“Movie was way ahead of its time. Couldn’t understand then why the film flopped may be because of overacting by SRK or Georgia’s effect. People expected a romcom but turned to be product which was attempted before in ‘Main Azad Hoon’. It is still reparable to today’s media circus where politics and media barons move hand in hand.”  (The meaning of “Georgia’s effect” is not known)

=====

“Way ahead of its time in the Indian context. Audiences in late 90s-early 2000s just wanted to see a romcom, especially if it featured SRK. The movie starts off that way but takes a political turn which exposes the nexus between people in power. It kind of displays the current situation in India in the year 2019. A lot of scenes would remind viewers of real-life situations that have occurred in the country over the past few years.  Maybe it was too much to take in for the viewers of the early 2000s, but this film would be a sure shot hit if it were to be released today or it may get banned in the country. Although, it does get too melodramatic in the final sequence.”

Certainly that this has been my own opinion all these years.  Every time we see a media circus, hypocrisy happening around, this was a recall sort of movie. A few of these reviews are giving the movie 10/10 rating.  Some are calling it highly underrated and a prelude to ‘Rang de Basanti’ (2006) etc. I personally feel it was less seriously tackled than ‘Rang De Basanti’, packaged more as a satirical comedy.

Song is very colourful for sure.  Jatin – Lalit are the composers and lyrics are by Javed Akhtar. On screen we see a few other artists, notably Satish Shah, Johnny Lever, Shakti Kapoor, Dalip Tahil, Dilip Doshi and others.

Hullo Atuldom

May 3 is not any celebrities birthday going by the listings on the anniversaries page of the blog. But a more important date for followers of movies. That was the date when the first Indian movie released in the year 1913.

“Raja Harishchandra” directed and produced by Shri. Dhundiraj Govind Phalke a.k.a Dadasaheb Phalke, was a silent film that released in Bombay’s Coronation Cinematograph and Variety Hall, Girgaon on 3rd May 1913 after a Premier at Olympia Theatre on 21st April. This was the genesis of the Indian Film Industry which has been entertaining generations since then. The movies, as we have come to love, has thrown up stories that are inspired from our mythology, history, real-life experiences etc. There are fans for a “Jai Santoshi Maa” as well as “Sholay”. I remember that when the Malayalam movie “Swami Ayyappan” came to the theatres in Bombay (it had hit the marquee in 1975 in Kerala) Manoj Kumar’s “Kranti” had also released and our family chose to see the Malayalam movie as it gave us an insight into the life and times of the lord Ayyappa.

Today we are having a song, from a movie, whose title is inspired from a famous song of the late 70s. The director of the movie was a person who has grown up in the film industry (so to say) as he is the son of a famous producer-director. The cast is headed by a fan of movies who himself has a huge fan-following.

I am talking of a song from the 2008 released “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi” (meaning “Match made in the heavens”) which was written and directed by Aditya Chopra, son of Yash Chopra who was also the producer of the film. And I need not add that Yash Chopra was a successful producer- director who began his innings in the film industry in the 50s. The movie had a cast headed by Anushka Sharma and Shahrukh Khan.

Today’s song happens when the lead pair have gone to see movie. “A cinema inside a cinema” as I would like to put it. The lady- Taani (Anushka) is bored with the proceedings on the screen. Then she imagines that one of her acquaintances has jumped on to the screen and then the whole atmosphere perks up. He says: “Taani partner do not fear when Raj is here. Humne bhi Ishq ke ustaadon se seekha hai” (I think those are his exact words). And then the song starts.

IMHO this song can claim to be fully inspired by all the preceding generations of actors and actresses. We have Shahrukh Khan and Kajol beginning the song as Raj Kapoor and Nargis, this is followed by Shahrukh as Dev Anand and Bipasha Basu as Sadhana. Then we have Lara Dutta as Helen to Shahrukh’s Shammi Kapoor act which is followed by Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore by SRK and Preity Zinta. The song has SRK and Rani Mukherjee reminding us of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh. So basically we go down memory lane as we see this song and try and relive the 50s, 60s and 70s.

I must complement the lyricist Jaideep Sahni for coming up with a song that had to have pre-existing words/lyrics/thoughts. One must not miss how “Babu Moshai” has fitted beautifully into the song. Also worth mentioning the art director’s and set designer’s contributions. They have done so much detailing- we should not miss the book that Preity as Sharmila Tagore is trying to read. It is called “Amar Prem” and has a photo of Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore from “Aradhana” in the song ‘Kora kaagaz tha ye mann mera’. Also we should not miss the huge Raj Kapoor hat at the start of the song as also the Dev Anand Cap, the eye from where the Shammi Kapoor segment starts and finally the long scarfs/mufflers that Rishi Kapoor used to sport and the steps that he and Neetu were exponents of. We should not forget the choreographer too. The composers Salim-Suleiman have also showed that they have also grown up on this fodder. They had an unenviable task of making a song from the music that was tuned by the legends of Bollywood and also not make a bad rehash.

Let us also enjoy this tribute to the great Ustaads (masters).

P.S: After I wrote this post I realized that 3rd May also happens to be Nargis’s death anniversary. It is 39 years since her passing and it was Dadasaheb Phalke’s birth anniversary on 30th April 1870- 150th birthdate.

Song-Hum hain raahi pyaar ke phir milenge chalte chalte(Rab ne bana di jodi)(2008) Singer-Sonu Nigam, Lyrics-Jaideep Sahni, MD-Salim Suleman

Lyrics

(awaara)
(Awaara)

(music uses awaara’s signature tune)

pyaar huwa ikraar huwa
jeena yahaan marna yahaan
inn baahon ko
inn raahon ko
chhod ye chhaliya jaaye kahaan
maana dil toh hai anaari,
yeh awaara hi sahi
are bol radha bol sangam hoga ke nahin
har janam mein
rang badal ke
khwaabon ke pardo pe hum khilte
ham hain raahi pyaar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte
hey
ham hai raahi pyaar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte

(here “Yeh dil na hota bechaara” tune is used)

dil ka bhanwar kare
kare pukaar jab
pyaar kisi se hota hai
jiya o jiya kuchh bol do
ab dard sa dil mein hota hai
tidli yoo
tidli yoo
oo tere ghar ke saamne ghar banaaunga
toota hi sahi
pal bhar ke liye koi humein pyaar karle
jhootha hi sahi
jhootha hi sahi,
haay jhootha hi sahi ee
har janam mein
rang badal ke
khwaabon ke pardo pe hum khilte ae
ham hain raahi pyar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte
ham hain raahi pyaar ke ae
phir milenge chalte chalte

yaahoo
yaahoo

(here “o haseena zulfonwaali” tune is used)

oh haseena
zulfonwaali jaane jahaan
chaahe mujhko
junglee keh de saara jahaan
ho mehfil mehfil tu phire,
yaahoo yaahoo dil kare
mehfil mehfil tu phire,
yaahoo yaahoo dil kare
badan pe sitaare lapete huwe
har janam mein
rang badal ke
khwaabon ke pardo pe hum khilte
ham hain raahi pyaar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte
hey
ham hain raahi pyar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte

babu moshai ( Rajesh Khanna’s voice)
(here the tune is “sapnon ki raani kab aayegi tu)
hooo hehe haaa
hey jai jai shiv shankar,
kaanta laage na kankar
chaahe kuchh kar le zamaana
mere jeevan saathi
mere sapnon ki rani
zindagi safar hai suhaana
hey kuchh to log kahenge,
na suna keejiye
hey chain aaye mere dil ko
duwa keejiye
hey har janam mein
rang badal ke
khwaabon ke pardon pe hum khilte ae
ham hain raahi pyar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte
hey
ham hai raahi pyar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte

papa papapa paaa
papa papapa paaa
zu zu zu zuuu zuuu
zuuu zuuu zu zu zu

(here tune is from “bachna ae haseeno”)

darde dil darde jigar,
zamaane ko dikhaana hai
darde dil darde jigar,
zamaane ko dikhaana hai
hum kisi se kum nahin hai,
tujhko yeh bataana hai
ye waada raha,
oh meri chaandni ee
har janam mein
rang badal ke
khwaabon ke pardon pe hum khilte
ham hain raahi pyar ke
phir milenge chalte chalte
hey ham hain raahi pyaar ke ae
ah ah ah
chalte chalet ae ae ae
ae ae ae ae
aa chalte chalte
hum hain raahi pyaar ke ae
phir milenge chalte chalte
