Today (13th August 2018) would have been the 56th birthday celebration, or she would have completed 55 years of age. But that was not to be and we her fans lost her to an alleged “accidental death” on the 24th of February earlier this year. I know I don’t have to spell it out that I am speaking of Sridevi. I am sure it is a greater loss for her family – her daughters and husband. Specially when her daughter has just stepped into Bollywood and had her first release last month. And Jayaprada has put it beautifully in her tribute to her one-time co-star and supposed rival – like any mother Sri was anxious about her daughter’s debut film and audience-acceptance etc.

Instead of talking about how beautiful she was; how talented she was; and about her dances and supremely expressive eyes; or her comic timing, I want to go straight to today’s song. It is from her first ever Hindi release – ‘Solva Sawan’ (1979). It was directed by P Bharathiraja and is a remake of his Tamil original ’16 Vayathinile’, which translates to “at age 16”. The original was a commercial and critical success fetching a National award for S Janaki (playback) and Filmfare Awards for best actor (Kamalhaasan) and special award for Sridevi. Unfortunately, the movie failed in Hindi and nobody noticed the debut of Sridevi and she had to wait for four years to establish herself in Hindi films. And what a career from thereon. Infact she had six or seven releases in 1983 beginning with the extremely successful “Himmatwala” which revolutionised many things in the industry – song picturization, choreography, set decoration (songs with 100s of pots, sarees, chorus dancers etc) and music as a whole. We had songs like: “Ice Cream Khaaogi“; “Ek Aankh Maroon To Rasta Ruk Jaaye“; “Taaki O Taaki“; “Mama Mia Pom Pom” etc. to name a few of the songs that went on to become very popular – I am sure the purists who are reading this list are squirming 🙂 . I am sorry for putting all of them to discomfort but this was the route to Sridevi’s success in Hindi. What followed this wave of inane songs were sensible stuff like “Main Teri Dushman Dushman Tu Mera“; “Kaate Nahi Kat’te Yh Din Ye Raat“; “Mere Haathon Mein Nau Nau Choodiyan Hain“; “Tere Dil Mein Main Apne Armaan Rakh Doon“;what I am trying to point out is it was one inane song per movie at the most but they initially overshadowed her sensible stuff. But it was a fact that she was a darling of the masses from the time she stepped in front of the camera as a child.

Coming back to today’s song. It is a coming-of-age song where the heroine experiences pangs of love and is expressing it to whoever cares to listen – here it is the nature. And the white dress is supposed to indicate the purity of her feelings towards the veterinarian doctor (it was some actor called Madhukar, didn’t find any details about him on the net) who has arrived in the village and has managed to win her heart. The rest of the cast comprised of Amol Palekar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, and Dina Pathak. The song is written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and music is by Jaidev. The singing voice is of Vani Jairam. Sridevi was actually only 16 when this movie was released.

[Ed Note: The censors certified this film in 1978, and the Geet Kosh carries it in the list of films from 1978. It was probably released in theatres few months later, in 1979.]

There are songs that run their course during their time and are then forgotten with time. Most of these songs that end up forgotten are unlikely to get a second look in future. But there are exceptions. Some interesting developments may rekindle interest in such songs among future generations as well.

The first such song that readiliy comes to my mind is the song “April Fool banaaya to unko gussa aaya” from “April Fool”(1964). This song was a reasonably popular song of its time which then got forgotten. It was in 1980s when “Andha Kaanoon”(1983) was released that the title song of “April Fool”(1964) caught the fancy of music lovers once again. In the movie “Andha Kanoon”(1983), inspector Durga Devi Singh (Hema Malini) is trying to secretly record the confession of her brother Vijay Kumar Singh (Rajnikant) how he killed the murderers of their father. But when she plays the recording then instead of the confession, this title song “April Fool banaaya” gets played, much to the cheer of movie watchers. Many movie watchers became aware of this “April Fool”(1964) song thanks to this scene of “Andha Kaanoon”(1983). Even I began to take a second look at this song only as a result of this scene of “Andha Kaanoon”(1983).

“April Fool”(1964) title song saw a revival thanks to a movie that was released two decades later. But sometimes songs can see revivals and renewed public interest in them because of reasons that have nothing to do with films !

Take the case of the “Nagina”(1986) song, Main teri dushman dushman tu mera. This song has suddenly become quite popular these days, not only among Indians, but even among non Indians. 🙂

The reasons are non filmy, and they have to do with cricket !

Yes, indeed it is a cricketing incident involving non India players that this “Nagina”(1986) song has become popular. More than the song, it is the picturisation of the song that has caught the fancy of cricket loving public.

Let me explain the situation for those who may not be aware of the cricketing incident. A three nation T20 cricket tournament involving India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh is in progress at the moment, where every team plays its opponents twice. The two top teams then play the final.

In the first match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh on Sunday 11 march 2018, Sri Lanka after batting first piled up a huge total of 214. Bangladesh, who were not expected to be able to overhaul the total batted spiritedly and emerged victorious, scoring the winning runs with two balls to spare. The hero of Bangladesh win was their diminutive batsman wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim who played a scintillating unbeaten knock of 72 from 35 balls to clinch a famous victory for his team. In an earlier T20 match in the past, he had celebrated prematurely thinking that his team had won, but his team ended up losing to India by one run in that match. Here Mushfiqur celebrated only after he hit the winning run. And how did he celebrate ? He did a “Naagin” dance, Sridevi style.

His “Naagin” dance celebration overshadowed even the victory of his team. Some criticised him for his immaturity, some supported him, some called for restraint, some ridiculed him. On social media, one found Mushfiqur getting trolled. On youtube, there were several videos in which his photo was superimposed over SriDevi’s in that “Main teri dushman” song.

I had watched this song and the movie in a movie hall during the time this movie was released in 1986. This song was popular but I did not take much notice of the song then. But this time, after 32 years, I took a second look at this song. For that I have to thank Mushfiqur Rahim of Bangladesh!

The fact that a Bangladeshi cricketer is aware of this song and he is in fact a fan of Sri devi’s Naagin dance movement is news to me. 🙂
In the second match between the same two opponents, Mushfiqur Rahim, after batting well for some time, threw his wicket away and this time the Sri Lankan bowler did a “sapera” dance movement, as Sapera played by Amrish Puri does in the song picturisation. So, even Sri Lankans were aware of this Hindi movie song ! The fact that the fans too were aware of it was proved when cameras showed a placard being carried by some fans showing a sketch of a sapera and a naagin. 🙂

Just imagine, a Hindi movie song of 1986 catching so much attention of non Indian cricketers. It is clear that these cricketers must have watched the movie, or at least the song picturisation.

With these two matches attracting the attention of cricket fans world wide, even non Asian cricket fans are bound to take notice of this “Naagin” song and some of them may get interested in this song. 🙂

The fact that foreign cricketers have begun to take interest in Indian movies, thanks to so many of them playing in IPL, is no secret. A few weeks ago, South African bowler Lungi Ngidi was snapped up by Chennai Super Kings in IPL auction. The bowler then tweeted

Just listened to the #LungiDance song loving it already.

The tweet was retweeted and liked thousands of time, mostly by Indians.

Foreign players are even getting interested in learning Hindi. On the eve of Deepaawali of 2017, India played New Zealand in an ODI match. New Zealand won the match, thanks to the batting of Ross Taylor of New Zealand. Sehwag tweeted:-

Well played @RossLTaylor Darji ji . Great effort after handling the pressure of Diwali orders .#indvsnz

— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 22, 2017

Guess what ! Look at the response of Ross Taylor:-

Thanks @virendersehwag bhai agli Baar Apna order time pe Bhej dena so Mai Apko agli Diwali ke pehle deliver kardunga ….happy Diwali

So one can say that foreign cricketers are getting interested in things Indian. This is because India is now emerging as an attractive destination for opportunities in many areas, including cricket. Foreign cricketers have begun to take lots of interest in India because of IPL. Forget active cricketers, even retired cricketers are getting involved in various capacities viz mentors, coaches, commentators etc. When it comes to commentary, opportunities are increasing. The TV channels have now started to offer commentary in Hindi and some other languages as well. So ex cricketers able to speak in these languages are in demand as commentators. Ex cricketers like Sehwag and V V S Laxman have emerged as a much sought after Hindi commentary jodi. Even Gavaskar, Ganguly, Murli Kartik etc do Hindi commentary. In the present tri series underway in Sri Lanka, I found Athar Ali Khan too being called up for Hindi commentary. He understands Hindi but cannot speak in it. Hopefully he will brush up in his Hindi speaking then he can find more commentary opportunities.

The movie “Nagina”(1986) was produced and directted by Harmesh Malhotra. The movie had Rishi Kapoor, Sridevi, Amrish Puri, Komal, Prem Chopra, Sushma Seth, Pinchoo Kapoor, Viju Khote, Guddi Maruti, Lalita Kumari, Baby Guddo, Manmouji, Jagdeep, Satyadevi, Rajan, Sheetal, Suresh etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Nagina”(1986). This song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The song is picturised as a naagin-sapera song on Sridevi, playing naagin, and Amrish Puri (playing sapera). Amrish Puri is assisted by many other saperas in the picturisation. 🙂

With this song, whose song picturisation has attracted so much attention in a couple of cricket matches played in 2018 between two international teams, “Nagina”(1986) makes its debut in the blog.

Blog Day : 3512 Post No. : 14111

How do I begin this post? I am at a loss. I have so many things running in my head. Should I say Sunday 25th March 2018, was a bad day or sad day. But it was definitely a day which began sadly for me. I normally begin my Sundays an hour later than working days, but this Sunday was different. The constant buzzing of my mobile due to incoming messages disturbed me. And one of the message was from my son, who was travelling, and had not slept in the bus. He was seeing the internet site of a news channel which carried the shocking news that the darling of the audiences SRIDEVI had passed away in Dubai of a CARDIAC Arrest. That jolted me and my first reaction was to google for confirmation. And sure enough the news had broken on the internet a few minutes back. The first person to break the news to Atulites was Satyajitji from DOWN Under. And the reactions followed through the day- here there everywhere.

There were messages being posted and reposted and forwarded among the various WhatsApp- groups all trying to find a reason for the sudden death of a supposedly perfectly healthy human being. The mystery still continues. But we have lost a “Khwaabon Ki Shehzaadi”, a style icon, an inspiration for numerous aspiring actors. A person who was passionate about her work. She was comfortable doing an Indian classical dance as well as out-of-tune Bollywood-style numbers the equivalent of which in South Indian movies are called Dappang-Kootu; though Dappang-Kootu is largely folk dance based and Sridevi was good in all of it.

On the day the news broke all the news channels spoke of her work in Tamil as well as Hindi movie and mentioned in the passing about her having worked in Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu as well. Having started at the very young age of 4 or 5 she has acted opposite all the giants of the Indian film industry of the period starting with Sivaji Ganesan and Gemini Ganesan in her first movie “Kandan Karunai” as child star in Tamil; followed by “Maa Naana Nirdoshi” in Telugu, “Kumara Sambhavam” in Malayalam, and “Apna Desh” in Hindi as Rajesh Khanna’s niece- cannot forget “Rona kabhi nahin rona chahe toot jaaye koi khilona” although her fist outing as child star in Hindi was “Rani Mera Naam” in 1972. I have also seen her in the Tamil version of “Apna Desh” “Nam Naadu” as niece to MGR. Just before she began performing adult roles we saw her as sister to Lakshmi in “Julie” in the iconic song “My heart is beating”, she was just 11 then.

From the age of 13 she graduated to doing adult roles and Kamal Haasan and Rajnikanth were her first co-actors. There was time when she was a heroine to many actors of the South Indian film industry in whose films she had acted as a child.

Her debut in Hindi was in the not-so-successful “Solva Sawan” in 1979 opposite Amol Palekar; she had also starred in the Tamil original and the Telugu remake. But after her second attempt in Hindi movies in the Jeetendra starrer “Himmatwala” in 1983. I distinctly remember that year I had been to Hyderabad to my mama’s place and there were these huge posters everywhere of this beautiful heroine amid rows of “colourful pots” in what turned out to be a song which is still popular “nainon mein sapna, sapno mein sajna, sajna pe dil aagaya”. That was also the time when Jaya Prada had made her debut in Hindi movies through “Sargam”. And the teenager that I was then, decided Sridevi was a threat to Jaya Prada, and refused to see that movie. I think the first Sridevi movie I saw of my own choice was “Inquilaab” because Amitabh Bachchan was her co-star. And then I was floored by her. Subsequently I have many of her movies and was particularly fond of her pairing with Jeetendra and Amitabh Bachchan though that was only in three movies, she was the FEMALE SUPERSTAR of her times. She also paired successfully with Anil Kapoor and Mithun Chakravarty.

28-2-2018
—————–
I have been writing this for the last two days and still the reality has not sunk-in. I am still thinking of the day when the news broke. In the meantime, there has been news that our shehzaadi died due to “accidental drowning” but whatever be the reason she is lost to us and her numerous fans. But the people who will miss her the most will be her two young daughters and husband, immediate family and friends. They have undergone great mental stress this last few days, the time that it took them to get her mortal remains from Dubai. My thoughts are with them. They say the cremation will finally happen today. May our darling Sridevi find eternal peace.

Over the last two days, as I was talking of a star/ an actor I loved, I told my mom-in-law about all the Sridevi- Jaya Prada movies of the 80s where Sri always played a stronger character and Jaya had all the crying to do. My sister was thinking of all the famous songs of the Jeetendra- Sridevi- Jaya Prada movies which could not have been done by anyone else. Everyone must have had a song of that time which they loved but will never admit as those were songs with seemingly no-sense. But they all were successful.

A thought just went through my mind. The day the news came on TV some channels showed a scene from one of her first movies as a child. It had baby Sridevi “crying unconsolably running a short distance and collapsing on to her Knee and still crying.” Her last released movie “Mom” (2017) has her running similarly, crying uncontrolled and dropping on to her knee. Uncanny I must say!!

The song with this post is from “Lamhe”. I had originally intended that the song should accompany a post on the graceful Waheeda Rehman, but I am presenting it here on this sad occasion. There is an incident behind the shoot of this song which Yash Chopra has related. The shoot was scheduled in London in 1991. That was the time her father passed away. She left the shoot midway to be with her family during the time of grief. The schedule was that this song was to be shot and upon her return Yash Chopra offered to change the schedule or cancel it altogether. But such was Sri’s passion to her work that she was ready to do what the director asked for. Anupam Kher her co-actor in the movie adds that in between shots she used to be drowned in grief but there used to be no trace of that emotion once she was infront of the camera. She was a darling of the camera too.

Rest in Peace Dear—Om Shanti, Shanti Shanti.

Blog Day : 3510 Post No. : 14101

It’s not easy writing this. I’ve written many posts here on the death anniversaries of various artistes – but in all those cases, I’ve had the benefit of distance of time from the event. Even if it is the first death anniversary, at least 365 days have passed since. That does make a difference. Today’s post isn’t a death anniversary post. It’s a tribute post, of course, but the artiste in question has just left us a few hours ago! And we are still in mourning. Which is why I write this post now with a lot of sadness in my heart.

This morning, when I woke up, I got the news that was like a bolt from the blue – that Sridevi, one of the most famous and popular actresses of our times, was no more. When I checked my whatsapp messages today, a regular morning routine, there was a message from one of my nieces – “This Sridevi news has left me so disturbed. She was my all-time favourite”.

I immediately checked Twitter, which is my usual go-to source for latest news. And sure enough – it was real, not a fake news item. Twitter is notorious for fake news being spread – but this time, unfortunately, there was nothing fake about this. Tributes were pouring in on Twitter.

I took a deep breath. It all seemed so unbelievable, it took me a while to digest the news. Sridevi  had died a few hours earlier of a cardiac arrest in Dubai. She had gone to attend a family wedding – it turned out to be her last day on this earth. There were pictures of her from just a few hours earlier – she looked just fine. In fact, she looked more than fine, she looked gorgeous – like she’d always looked. I was not aware of any health complaints of any sort. So then how did this suddenly happen?

There are theories floating around, some to do with her diet, pills etc. I do not want to discuss any of this here – it is all in the realm of speculation anyway, and I am sure we will get to hear more about it in the days to come.  Right now, all I know is that my thoughts have been with her all day today. I can see Sridevi’s face right in front of my eyes –superbly expressive, that twinkle in her eye, that smile. I can see her dancing, whether as a Naagin, or doing a break-dance in Michael Jackson style – completely at ease with both.

I can see her portraying a docile, innocent Anju one minute, and a chaalu Chaalbaaz Manju the very next. That is / was Sridevi. She could do both sadness and madness to such perfection within minutes – and you wouldn’t be able to say she was acting. No wonder she won many millions of fans all over the world. And not just Hindi film fans. Sure, she reigned as superstar for almost a decade in the Hindi film industry but her career in the South Indian film industry was not just longer, it was also probably far richer.

There will be many obituary and tribute pieces written for Sridevi in the days to come. As is common, her entire life will be detailed – from her early days to her final ones. Her career will be discussed in great detail, as will her personal life. I choose not to add to the repetitive element of these. I am no expert on Sridevi anyway – and anyone who wants a lot of facts on her is better advised to seek out one of those other sources. As is my wont, I will discuss Sridevi here from a personal perspective.

Hmm, where do I start? When did I first hear of Sridevi? I must admit that I first heard of Sridevi only in the late 1970s, though she had already become a popular name in South Indian cinema for some years by then. I lived in Eastern India at that time, where the exposure to South Indian cinema was very limited – and I’d heard of very few actors and actresses of the South.  Of course I’d heard of the legends (Sivaji Ganesan, MGR, Gemini Ganesan, Savitri, KR Vijaya etc.) but of the then-current lot, I’d not heard of many. Yes, I’d heard of Kamalahasan and Rajinikanth, though I’d not seen any of their films. As for heroines, I got to hear names like Sripriya, Srividya, Sujatha. And Sridevi. To me, the name Sridevi was just one of these names at that time.

Around that time, South Indian producers once again began to show interest in making Hindi films. Of course earlier too they had made a lot of films but the pace had slackened in the 1970s. It suddenly began picking up towards the end of the decade. Understandably these producers wanted to work with actors they were familiar with. So, just like Jamuna and KR Vijaya in an earlier generation, we got to see new South Indian faces entering the Hindi film industry.

Thus, in 1979, we got news that two big-name South Indian actresses would be seen in Hindi films. Jayaprada would be seen in a film called ‘Sargam’ (1979), and Sridevi would be seen in a film called ‘Solvaan Saawan’ (1978). ‘Sargam’ became a huge hit – and set Jayaprada on her way to success in the Hindi film industry. ‘Solvaan Saawan’, on the other hand, just came and went – and with that seemed to sink Sridevi’s future too in Hindi films. She simply seemed to have disappeared from the Hindi film scene.

For a while, I forgot about the existence of Sridevi, even as she was becoming a progressively more popular and successful star in the South. As it is, Hindi films rolled merrily on – with established heroines like Zeenat Aman, Hema, Parveen and Reena Roy, and a new set of heroines like Poonam Dhillon, Rati Agnihotri, Padmini Kolhapure, Anita Raaj and Deepti Naval.

By then, I was getting increasingly busy with my studies and was not able to keep pace with Hindi movies.

Then came 1983 and ‘Himmatwaala’ happened.  Sridevi returned with a bang. This film, in which she starred opposite Jeetendra, turned out to be a smash hit, with the songs becoming super-duper hits. Ironically for me, these songs only hastened my distaste for songs of that period, a distaste that had been formed with songs like “Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain”, “. . .Chaaye Pe Bulaaya Hai” becoming big hits. From then on, I almost completely shut myself off from Hindi films for a while.

‘Himmatwaala’ was one in a string of films from South India, many of which were commercially successful during the 1980s. Many of them starred Sridevi, Jeetendra and Jayaprada. Some starred Rajesh Khanna. But I had got a mental block about these films. So while Sridevi and Jayaprada were becoming big stars in Hindi cinema, I refused to watch their films. Years later, around 2007, I did watch ‘Himmatwaala’ on TV, keeping my expectations very low. Must admit it wasn’t all THAT bad!

Despite this mental block, I did watch the odd Sridevi film. The first one I remember watching was ‘Sadma’ (1983). I remember thinking “Oh, so THIS is Sridevi!”.  I liked her in the film. Then I watched ‘Tohfa’ (1984). Only because it was being screened in our local club and my friends persuaded me to watch it. I went in with very low expectations – and was therefore not very disappointed. Again, I liked Sridevi in the film. But then I’m not a particularly big fan of Jayaprada. So in comparison, I’d any day prefer to watch a Sridevi film. And then I watched ‘Moondram Pirai’ (1982), the Tamil classic – of which ‘Sadma’ is a remake. Apart from these three films, I didn’t watch a single Sridevi film in the 80s.

Thankfully her career wasn’t dependent on my taste at the time 🙂 otherwise it would not have taken off at all. She kept going from strength to strength. By 1986, when she would be seen in ‘Sultanat’, ‘Aakhri Raasta’, ‘Jaanbaaz’, ‘Karma’ and ‘Nagina’ – all big movies, I realized that whether I was watching her movies or not, the whole of India seemed to be watching them. And loving her.

I realized that though there were other heroines like Meenakshi Seshadri and Dimple Kapadia who had the odd hit film, and Jayaprada was still very much in the mix, Sridevi had gone ahead of them all. She was now probably the No.1 heroine of the time. (Rekha, by then, was in a league of her own).

Then in 1987, Shekhar Kapur’s ‘Mr. India’ hit the screens – and that probably sealed it. Anyone who had any doubts about Sridevi’s rank in the industry was effectively shut up by this film. Her “Hawa Hawaii” song was a rage all over India. And then there was “Kaate Nahin Kat’te Ye Din Ye Raat”, which was Sridevi all the way.

Around this time, it was not inconceivable that a film would run on Sridevi’s name alone. She had earned that superstar status. On the male front, Amitabh Bachchan in the mid to late 1980s wasn’t having a good run. And none of the other male stars were quite superstar material yet. Sridevi was.

Yet she continued to act in a remarkable number of poor-to-average films – such was the quality of films in the 1980s! You can hardly blame the actor for that. You were lucky if there was one memorable film in ten. Most films could be forgotten the moment you stepped out of the hall.

Of her other well-known films, two from 1989 come to mind – ‘Chaandni’ and ‘Chaalbaaz’. I remember ‘Chaandni’ becoming a superhit. I’m not so sure about ‘Chaalbaaz’ – though it is one of my favourite Sridevi films. She plays a double role – and how. The film, a remake of ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972), is a hilarious comedy, completely owned by Sridevi.

1991 saw ‘Lamhe’ – another landmark film in her career. Once again, Sridevi was seen in a double role. Mother and daughter. A very different sort of film. I think ‘Lamhe’ failed at the box-office – it was a storyline that the audience found difficult to accept. But that does not take away from Sridevi’s performance.

1992 saw ‘Khuda Gawaah’, again a double role for Sridevi. Mother and daughter again. I wonder if any heroine has done more double roles than Sridevi. Fabulous scenes of Afghanistan, fabulous acting by Sridevi.

1993 had the resounding and expensive flop, ‘Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja’. After this, her career took a dip – and after ‘Judaai’ (1997), she was next to be seen in a lead role, goodness, 15 years later, in ‘English Vinglish’ (2012). And what a performance! It was SUCH a pleasure to see her in this film, putting up such a mature performance, that I was left wondering what might’ve been in the preceding 15 years.

Oh, one thing. I saw each one of the films I’ve mentioned above only after 1995. Yes, even her 1980s hits. Like I said before, I studiously stayed away from 1980s films at the time they were released. Not just Sridevi films, but all 1980s films. In the process, I might have missed some good ones too. I caught up with many of them later. After 1995.

And as I watched Sridevi, I could understand why she had become such a superstar. Beyond her looks and her amazing dancing ability, there was a fine actor. Not everyone realizes this – but her ability to take a scene to a different level altogether, just with her facial expressions, a roll of the eyes, a smile from the side of her mouth, all of this added to producing a memorable performance. And I daresay unlike the male superstars, her mannerisms didn’t come across as clichéd, even if she repeated them. She only endeared herself even more to the audience.

Yes, I could fully understand why Sridevi was a superstar. But ironically I realized this only after she had conceded the top spot to Madhuri Dixit, herself a deserving No.1. Many folks make a big deal of the Sridevi – Madhuri rivalry. I’ve never cared about it – each actor has his/her time and ups and downs. Both Sridevi and Madhuri were terrific actors and entertainers – and that is the main reason they were loved so much by the public. Anyway, the timing when the realization hit me, is irrelevant. What’s important is she is loved by millions of people. The outpouring of grief today is testimony to this. Whether you are a superstar or not, is secondary.

Let’s move on to the song for today.

I’ve picked this song from ‘Chaalbaaz’ (1989). It’s one of my favourite Sridevi films. I have watched it multiple times – and can still watch it. A ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972) remake, Sridevi here plays Anju (the docile one) and Manju (the chaalu one). The male leads are played by Sunny Deol and Rajinikanth. Though the film stars Anupam Kher, Rohini Hattangadi and Shakti Kapoor too, the film belongs to Sridevi. The dialogues are hilarious – check them out on youtube.

The song for today showcases, to some extent, why Sridevi was so popular. Just look at her bindaas dancing, just look at the expressions on her face. This is classic Sridevi. You cannot but love her in this song. Although it features Sunny Deol too, and a whole host of supporting dancers, Sridevi clearly steals the show. I’ve watched the song five times already today. It’s one way of remembering Sridevi. I am sure you will like the song too. Just observe Sridevi through the song – she is having so much fun, this song will just lift your spirits.

Lyrics have been provided by Avinashji. He was kind enough to offer to write them up, as soon as he got to know that I was planning to do this write-up. Thanks a lot, Avinashji.

Thank you for all the wonderful memories, Sridevi. You will always remain in our hearts.

Blog Day : 3470 Post No. : 13932

hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is a visual treat. It is a fun song. It is a song where-in the dancer/ artist is a choreographer’s delight. She follows all instructions and executes them fabulously. It is also a comic delight, the facial expression etc. It is from a 1987 movie which hitherto has only one song representing it on the blog. That song was posted on march 28th 2013 and was a contribution by Guruji alias encyclopaedia of the blog. .

Now today (17 january 2018) I am revisiting the movie because it happens to be the 73rd birthday of the script writer of this movie. This was the last movie for which he teamed up with his partner Salim Khan. He worked as a team with Salim Khan for a period of about twelve years and approx. 24 films. He is a Padmashri & Padma Bhushan, as well as a Sahitya Akademi and National Film award (5 times) winner. His father was an Urdu poet and lyricist in Bollywood. He was initially married to famous child star of the 60s- Honey Irani and later to another talented actress- Shabana Azmi. He is father to super talented children Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar. Today (17 january 2018) is the birthdate of Jaaved Akhtar – son of Jan Nisar Akhtar. In addition to being a script writer he also is a lyricist which first came into public knowledge when he wrote songs for Yash Chopra’s “Silsila”.

“Mr. India” was a fantasy film which is a favourite with children of all times. It was directed by Shekhar Kapoor and written by Salim- Jaaved. Sridevi showed she had comic talent specially in the scene where she parodies Charles Chaplin. The dozen odd children were a treat for sore eyes. Amrish Puri as Mogambo is considered to be one of the best villains of Bollywood history. And as for Anil Kapoor the movie showed he was more an actor -a lambi-race ka ghoda as the term goes in Hindustani. There are stories about how Salim-Javed read the story to the superstars Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan and how they turned it down as they couldn’t relate to the concept of aninvisible man; but we will not think of that here.

Let us just sit back and enjoyyyyyyy this wonderful – comical- delightful song. I have heard in an interview by either the singer or the writer about how they wrote the lyrics of the initial part of the song. It seems they were sitting in a brain storming session- the director, music directors (Laxmi- Pyare), Kavitha Krishnamurthy etc etc. And each one gave a word or two, some sensible and some non-sensible. How else does one explain the words – hingsiki and why should I c Lucy, hassi tussi & lassi pisi follow each other and where did Hong Kong, King Kong, Ping Pong and Mombasa come from. But all-in-all a laugh riot.

Thank you, Jaaved Akhtar, and may we have more such songs from your pen.

Today, 13th August is the birthday of Sridevi, as she turns 54.

For this celebration, here is a wonderful dance song performed by her, from the film ‘Jaag Utha Insaan’ (1984). The setting for the song is a stage performance, likely at a religious function. On stage, Sridevi is accompanied by Mithun Chaktravarty playing the flute and Beena signing the vocals. We also see Sudhir Dalvi, sitting next to Beena. In the audience we can see Yunus Parvez, sitting in the chair right up front, Sujeet Kumar and Kaanan Kaushal sitting  in the audience, Rakesh Roshan and Deven Verma, standing at the back, with Somayaajulu making an entry, while the program is in progress.

Hi everyone in Atuldom

Happy New Year 2017 to all

I was trying my level best to resist the urge to write out a song in memory of RDB- our very own Pancham. Not because I don’t like RD Burman, I know the whole world of Atulites know how much I love Pancham, just that I was too occupied with other things which needed a lot of my time. But then I remembered that I had selected a song and had wanted to send it across to Atul to be posted today (4 january 2017).

Today, the 27th of April, is the death anniversary of Feroz Khan.

It feels like only the other day that Feroz passed away – the memory (and shock) of that day is still fresh in my mind. But, when I checked the year just now, I see it was in 2009. So it’s already 6 years since Feroz left us. How time flies!

Hullo to atuldom

Today is the 76th birthday of Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma of the Shiv-Hari duo. So on this occasion I was going through the list of movies for which the duo have given music and came across this song from Yash Chopra’s Chaandni (1989). And I thought bingo! Apt song for saluting the genius of Shiv- Hari and for the celebrations in our family that begins from tomorrow.
