Blog Day : 3463 Post No. : 13900

Exactly one month and a day – from the time that we hit the last century milestone. The 13800th song had come on to the blog on 10th Dec. And today, 10th Jan, we arrive at the 13900th station of this musical journey. Many congratulations to all members of the bandwagon. We are into another year now, and folks keeping tabs will agree, the pace of postings, and pace of participations has really picked up in the past 10 days. Or to put a positive twist – in the first 10 days of the year. The mind goes back to the whatsapp message on the group – that new year resolutions are but a matter of interest for about a week into the new year. After that, the crowds on the morning walk are back to the thin normal expected for those early hours of the day. 🙂

But so far, so good – the going has been good in these ten days. And quite truthfully, as of now, we have ready posts from many contributors waiting in the wings to come on board. The limitations are at times either just a specific anniversary or a milestone must be covered, or that a debut and a yippeee song must be part of the day’s menu. On all these counts, we seem to be doing really well so far. But, oh then, it is just 10th Jan as yet. Maybe we will create a new record of determined sustenance this year. Or then, maybe we won’t. Time, as they always say, will tell. 🙂

Welcome all to the 13900th पड़ाव on this long and interesting journey of Hindi film music. On this, 3643rd day of the existence of this blog. For such significant milestones, we conventionally attempt to bring together important milestones for artists or anniversaries of artists. Today, the 10th Jan, is the birth anniversary of two living luminaries of the Hindi film industry.

First we have Basu Chattejee, who turns 87 today. Basu Chatterjee, a name that is synonymous with what is termed as the middle-of-the-road genre of Hindi films. Films that are not big star high budget bonanzas of formulaic composition, and neither they are at the extreme end of the avant-garde. If you think of ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974) and ‘Baaton Baaton Mein’ (1979), then that is the genre termed as middle-of-the-road. I remember those were the school days, and it was films like this that none in the family had any objections for us kids to go and watch with friends. For almost a decade, Basu Da’s films were a routine. If it is directed by him, then it is a must watch film.

I have seen almost all of his films as they appeared, during my student years, first school and then college. I was not very familiar with Basu Da as a personality. But his films carried / still carry such an enchanting charisma of natural flow, natural performances, and stories that are closer to real life, but are close in a very endearing sense. The romanticism is nurtured in very natural surroundings. The lead actors are seen waiting at public bus stops, and eating at known regular restaurants. The characters appear to be closer to life – vulnerable, defeat-able, more real than the ‘macho’ heroes of the mainline cinema. The humor is simple, expressed in everyday language. And the story lines – quite natural and rarely getting overdramatic.

That was the cinematic diet that challenged the supremacy of the mainline big budget cinema. Yes, there were other companions of Basu Da on this journey, who share the same penchant for clean and happy entertainment. Of course, Basu Da stands out as the one who has given us wonderful hits year after year, for almost a decade. A quiet sampler of his films from his first decade – ‘Baton Baton Mein’ (1979), ‘Do Ladke Dono Kadke’ (1979), ‘Dillagi’ (1978), ‘Tumhare Liye’ (1978), ‘Swami’ (1977), ‘Safed Jhoot’ (1977), ‘Priyatma’ (1977), ‘Khatta Meetha’ (1977), ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ (1976), ‘Chitchor’ (1976), ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974), ‘Us Paar’ (1974), ‘Piya Ka Ghar’ (1972), ‘Sara Akash’ (1969). And of course the list does not end here. It continues well into the early 2000s, albeit that it then gets mixed with mainline, big stars films also.

Each of the films listed above merits an individual write up, in as of itself. Many would remember the songless ‘Sara Akash’ – a tale of a newly wed couple and their tribulations of adjusting with each other and with the families. Ascending forward from this, Basu Da has given us delightful fare to watch year in and year out. A dear salute to this master of the understatement of the middle-of-the-road cinema.

The second birthday we celebrate today is Yesudas. At 77 today, exactly 10 years younger to Basu Da, this young man is the owner of that home grown sound of singing that has adorned many a films by Basu Da. We frequently see his presence in Basu Da’s films, starting with ‘Chit Chor’ and ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ both in 1976, almost becoming the ghost voice of Amol Palekar for many of his films. Although he recorded his first song for Hindi cinema in 1971, for the unreleased film ‘Jai Jawaan Jai Kisan’, the first released films for him were the two mentioned, in 1976.

Born in 1940 in Cochin, Yesudas started his singing career with Malayalam films in 1961. He made a siginificant contribution to the films in south Indian regional cinemas, before heading north to Hindi cinema in early 1970s. His debut in the popular Hindi cinema with Basu Da’s films quickly earned him an important recognition as a playback singer of significant merit.

Yesudas has been honored seven times as the Best Playback Singer at the National Awards. About him, music director Ravindra Jain has said that if he ever regains his vision, the first person he wants to see is Yesudas.

Today’s song brings together these two luminaries. The film ‘Apne Paraaye’  (1980) is directed by Basu Da. In the film, Yesudas is the playback voice for Amol Palekar, yet once again. The song is a duet with Asha Bhosle, and on screen this is performed by Amol Palekar and Shabana Azmi.

Ed Note: Our dear Pratap ji has added this information. The story of this film is based on the novel titled ‘Nishkriti’ written by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. ‘Nishkriti’ means ‘chhutkaara’.
Ed Note: Dear Arun ji has further added that this novel is the last work of Sharat Chandra, and also his shortest novel. Further, the more appropriate flavor of the meaning of the word ‘Nishkirti’ is ‘deliverance’ or ‘setting free’.

In the story line, the couple and their two children have fallen on hard times, due to machinations and misunderstanding within a family of brothers. Utpal Dutt and Girish Karnad are brothers, both lawyers. Amol Palekar is their younger cousin, who stays in the same household. The envy between the wives of Amol Palekar and Girish Karnad forces Amol to leave the household and go to live in the village home of the family. The misunderstandings between the families reach a high pitch with legal action being initiated by Girish Karnad, at the behest of his wife, against Amol. Eventually, the eldest brother, Utpal Dutt, steps in, to iron out the problems. The family is reunited, with the caveat that Girish Karnad and his wife leave the household and move to another city.

The song is placed in the time when Amol and his family are relegated to the servant’s hut of the family’s village home, and the dishonest and unscrupulous supervisor of their family estate reduces the family to a hand-to-mouth situation. Amol has played the role of the youngest brother who is not perturbed even in the extreme circumstances. In this song, he is telling his ‘mann’, his own self, and also his two sons, that one should be happy and have a song on the lips, no matter what are the difficulties facing oneself.

The sensitive lyrics are from the pen of Yogesh and the softly paced and oh so relaxing composition is tuned by Bhappi Lahidi. A wonder strike that is so different from the ‘disco’ Lahidi that we are more familiar with.

Wishing both Basu Da and Yesudas, many more such celebrations to follow in the coming years.

And once again, congratulations to all members of this bandwagon, on the 139th century song. Surely, we have come a long way. And equally surely, we still have a long way to go. . .  Cheers.


Song – Gaao Mere Mann  (Apne Paraaye) (1980) Singer – Yesudas, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Bhappi Lahidi

Lyrics

gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe

poora nahin hota kisi ka
yahaan har sapan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

miley jo gham

bahaaron ke deep saja le
miley jo gham

bahaaron ke deep saja le
bujhe koi aasha ka diya
to phir se jala le
dukhon se tu haar na raahi
kiye ja jatan
ho oo
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

ro kar chalta hai
hans ke tu chal
chalna tujhe hoga
ro kar chalta hai
hans ke tu chal
chalna tujhe hoga
rukenge na tere liye re
samay ke charan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

Blog Day : 3459 Post No. : 13880

hullo Atuldom

This post features the YYIIPPEEEE song of the movie called “Agni Pareeksha” (1981). Produced by B. R. Chopra and directed by Kamal Majumdar. The star cast had Amol Palekar- Parikshit Sahni- Rameshwari in the lead and the supporting cast was of Veena, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Utpal Dutt and Dinesh Thakur. Music was by Salil Choudhry and Yogesh was the lyricist. Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar were the singers used. The movie had four songs, all solos no duets, three have been posted with a brief idea about the movie being in this post.

I had held back sending this post to Atulji as I wanted it to coincide with Rameshwari’s birthday. She is a graduate from the Film and Televison Institute Pune. She has appeared in many movies in varied languages – Malayalam, Bengali, Bhojpuri, oriya etc. she met her husband at TFII. Together they produced “Hum farishtey nahi” in hindi and “mein tunn assi tussi” in Punjabi… but she is best remembered for “Dulhan wahi jo piya man bhaaye”, “Sunayana”, “Asha” etc. and a few serials. She took a break to raise her family and was back in 2002 with “Kuch Tum Kaho Kuch Hum Kahe” as Vikram Gokhale’s sister and from then began her 2nd innings.

Today’s song will remind the viewer of songs like “aaj se pehle aaj se zyada” from “Chitchor” and “dil toh hai dil dil ka aitbaar kya kije” from “Muqqadar Ka Sikandar”. Meaning the heroine is singing blissfully unaware that both the heroes are fantasising about her. 🙂 also as in the Chitchor song she is unaware of the changed relations between her and Parikshit Sahni. Remember in the Cgtchor song Amol Palekar was unaware of the situation until Zarina Wahab informs him about why Vijendra has made an appearance in their life.

Editor’s note- I had originally planned to cover this song three years ago on this date in 2015 and that writeup is still there with me. I have no idea how I missed posting it on that date as post number 10650. Lyrics and other details for the song were provided by Prakashchandra for the song. So the lyrics of this song are by Prakashchandra and my observations on Rameshwari that I had then noted down were like this:

Today (6 january) is the birthday of Rameshwari. Many people among younger generation may look askance on the mention of her name. But there was a time during 1977-78 when she was one of the hottest properties in Hindi movies when she made her debut in Rajshree Production’s endearing movie “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye” (1977). This movie turned her into an overnight sensation. People (especially women) would throng to watch this movie. When this movie was released in my town, I did not take any notice of it because the title of the movie did not appeal to me and in any case I was more into watching Amitabh Bachchan movies those days. But when I noticed that this movie was having a longer run in the town that what even “Sholay” (1975) managed, then I was intrigued and I bunked my college to watch this movie. And I was bowled over ! I then watched this movie four more times, and it was only for Rameshwari.

Salil Chowdhury or Salilda as he was known in the Indian Film industry…mind the term Indian here and not Bollywood—would have been about 94 years old (on 19th November) if he had been there. He was an active music composer for Malayam, Bengali and Hindi movies. That is the reason for me using the term “Indian Film Industry”. Born in West Bengal he spent his childhood in the Tea Gardens of Assam. He came to Calcutta (Kolkata) for his graduate studies and that is when he joined IPTA. His musical career had a take off from here when he wrote and set songs to tune for IPTA. His film debut came in the Bengali film of 1949 “Paribortan” and his Hindi debut was Bimal Roy’s “Do Bigha Zamin” in 1952. His Malayalam debut was “Chemeen” in 1964. He did about 75 Hindi. 40 Bengali and 27 Malayalam movies. We can find his music in a few Tamil, Kannada, Marathi, Gujarati, Oriya and Assamese films too.

As I was going through the blog I found that “Agni Pareeksha” (1981) had music by Salilda. On further hunting I came across a very hummable song in the vocals of Kishore Kumar that was written by Yogesh. The song has Amol Palekar singing for a puppet show and Rameshwari and Parikshit Sahani squirming very much like Rajendra Kumar and Vyjayanthimala in “Dost dost na raha, pyar pyar na raha,” style. Seeing this I resolved to see the movie to get the song in context.

After having sat through 2 hours and 15 minutes of the movie “Agni Pareeksha” this is what I learnt or deduced:-

Sometimes even the best intentions of the producer (this movie is produced by B.R. Chopra death anniversary was on 5th November) and good acting by an able actor meaning Amol Palekar (24th November birthday i.e. today) are not enough to save a movie with a bad story and script no matter who the director is (Kamal Majumdar). Added to that one has to tolerate an actor who hams -Parikshit Sahni and an actress (Rameshwari) who has nothing much to do.

The story revolves around the estate and business of a rich lady (Veena) who has a son (Amol Palekar) undergoing treatment in psychiatric’s (Iftikhar) nursing home to get over a trauma. The son has seen his father commit suicide by jumping off a bridge into a river prompted by his wife- Veena’s ex-love’s (Dr.Shreeram Lagoo) return. This is the cause of the son’s trauma.

Meanwhile, Veena takes the responsibility of looking after the upbringing of an orphan girl (Rameshwari) -who turns out to be a good student and eventually a good companion to the now-aged Veena. She also assists the aged lady in handling her factories and other businesses after they find that the manager (Utpal Dutt in a negative role) is not liked by the workers of the factory.

The workers prefer to toe the line of their engineer (Parikshat Sahni), so Veena puts the engineer and Meeta (Rameshwari) in charge of the factories etc. In addition, she assigns the engineer a job to convince her son to return home plus to add confusion to the story she starts toying with the idea of having Meeta for a daughter-in-law.

As luck would have it Meeta and the engineer have fallen in love, and the son (Amol Palekar) also develops a liking for Meeta the instant he sees her. Then follows the usual round of sacrifices between the lovers so that ‘Maalkin’ and her son are happy; the son is instigated by the ex-manager to doubt the lovers; Meeta runs away to marry the engineer and the son shoots himself with a gun that has the engineer’s fingerprints enough to accuse the engineer of the murder. What follows is the family and Meeta trying their level best with the help of Dr. Shreeram Lagoo to save the engineer from the gallows.

So that my friends is the “Agni Pareeksha” that the audience is put to.

After having graduated from J.J. School of Arts Mumbai, and working in a bank alongside being active on stage, Amol Palekar made his movie debut in Satyadev Dubey’s Marathi movie “Shantata! Court Chalu Aahe!” and Basu Chatterjee’s Rajnigandha was his first Hindi release. This led to many other ‘middle-class boy next door’ roles for almost the entire 70s and he did his act so well that when he did a serial-killer in Vinod Chopra’s “Khamosh” or a grey-shaded Kishan Lal in Anil Ganguly’s “Aanchal” it came as a shock to the audience.

He had done a grey-shaded character very early on in his career in Shyam Benegal’s 1977 release “Bhumika” too; but essentially, he was always the friendly-neighborhood good boy. On running through his filmography, it is seen that his movie career started around the same time as the Amitabh Bachchan’s but they got to act together only in the 2001 releases “Aks” where Amol had a brief role of a defence minister though AB did a friendly appearance in “Golmaal” (1979).

Today he has returned to his first love – painting though he says he is still open to doing movies if he finds them interesting.

Wishing our Ram Prasad alias Laxman Prasad alias Amol Palekar a happy and healthy life- and a very Happy Birthday.

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Yesterday, 16thJune 2017, was the 97th birth anniversary of singer- music director-producer-director Hemant Mukherjee alias Hemant Kumar. He started out his music journey in 1935 on All India Radio with “Amar Ganete Ele Nabarupi Chirantanii” under the influence of his friend Subhas Mukhopadhayay. Hemant Da’s music career was primarily mentored by the Bengali musician, Sailesh Duttagupta. In his early life Hemant Da used to follow the famous Bengali singer Pankaj Mullick. For this he was nicknamed as “Chhoto Pankaj”. In an interview on television in the early 1980s, Hemanta had mentioned that he had also received classical music training from Ustad Faiyaz Khan’s student Phanibhusan Banerjee.

Hullo atulites

I just realised that today (24 november 2016) is the birthday of another 70s/80s actor, producer director. Yes I am talking of the man who made the common man or the boy-next-door feel like a hero- Amol Palekar. I can’t believe he turns 73 today. it seems like yesterday that we saw him in Chitchor, Rajnigandha and Choti Si Baat. It seems like only recently that we saw him searching for a house with Zarina Wahaab and singing “Do deewane shahar main”, or desparately trying to convince his mom about Tina Munim being the right girl for him to get Married to (Baaton Baaton Mein). Then one fine day we saw him as a villian in Vinod Chpora’s ” Khamosh”. With his clean image one would have never guessed that he was the serial killer in that movie. In between all this we also saw him playing a husband to Parveen Babi (Rang Birangi) where he is tutored by Deven Verma about how to bring back the romance in his married life.
