Hullo Atuldom

Over the last few days we have had some very wordy posts- wordy in terms of the write up and also length of the song/s. None of these posts were boring, they were educative and informative.

Nahmji’s post was a lesson on Ramadan, Hajj, Umrah, and the pilgrimages to Makka and Madinah and also the protocols being followed in these times of the Pandemic.

This post of Atulji spoke of “Covid 19: Virus and treatment Simplified” as our Avinashji has said in the comments to the post.

In between the two posts we had one by our in-house encyclopedia on his disciplined habits of making handwritten notes about the movies he had seen. In the post he has written a point to which even I subscribe to “Depending on the age of the person, the period of ‘old films’ differs. For an young man of, say 20-25 years old films may mean films which came in the 80’s and 90’s. For people of 30-40 years, films of the 6o’s and 70’s are old films. For people of 45-60 years of age, old films are from the 50’s. Only people in the age bracket of 65 to say 80/85, it is films of the 30’s and 40’s which are old films!”

In addition I was going to mention that the meaning of entertainment and content of the films made in each era reflects the current social scene, problems, and aspirations of the younger generation. This too Guruji has spoken about in this post yesterday.

I have always seen movies with the intention of getting entertained and I love it when there is no logic in what is shown on the Silver-Screen. That is why I like the “RH ka group” and “two jyothis emanating from the eyes of an idol and giving vision to a blind lady” scenes. Similarly I like it when the doctors on-screen say “isko dawa ki nahin dua ki zaroorat hai”. I am sure the medical fraternity must be squirming in their seats when they see the doctors mouthing these words. Same goes for the Police, they are always shown to arrive late at scenes of crime unless the lead actors are playing the cop. But we will focus on the cops of Indian movies in a different post.

The song with this post sees the heroine playing a doctor. She is the resident Doctor who does her rounds, checks on all the patients and smiles lovingly at each one of them (and that should be enough to cure half her patients as her smile is high-voltage). One of her patients has lost his memory in some accident (regular feature in all Indian Movies) and Dr. Sushma (Madhuri Dixit) not only takes care of him but also falls in love with Krishna (name given to the character played by Aditya Pancholi by the hospital) and marries him. Later, the doctor’s friendly Inspector Ranjit Kapoor (Suresh Oberoi) warns her that her husband was set to kill her before the accident and her life may be in danger if he regains his memory. Krishna regains his memory when he has another accident (again normal for Indian Movies) and he again tries to kill the Doctor accusing her of being the cause of his sister’s death. Then the movie follows the usual path of clearing misunderstandings and All Is Well in the end.

This was the plot of “Sailaab” which released 31 years ago in August of 1990. It was a remake of a 1988 Tamil movie which I have seen in the open-air auditorium of the colony where I had lived in the initial years of my married life. “Sailaab” was produced by Surendra Jain and directed by Deepak Balraj Vij. Bappi Lahiri was the music composer of songs written by Javed Akhtar and Anjaan. The playback singers used were Anupama Deshpanse, Amit Kumar, Kavitha Krishnamurthy, Sudesh Bhonsle, Asha Bhonsle, and someone called Mangal Singh. The cast comprised of Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Pancholi, Suresh Oberoi, supported by Anand Balraj, Shafi Inamdar, Om Shivpuri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, C S Dubey, Sahila Chadda, Jamuna, Shammi, T.P. Jain etc. I have seen climax of “Sailaab” and must say that it was edge-of-seat experience. The most popular song of this movie won Saroj Khan a Filmfare award for best choreography.

We are having this song to wish Madhuri on her birthday. I don’t think this popular actress of over 70 films needs any introduction. Neither do I need to say that she is a recipient of 6 Filmfare awards and also been awarded the PadmaShri by the government of India in 2008. She made her debut in a Rajshree Productions movie in 1984 and was repeated by the production house in “Hum Aapke Hain Kaun”(1994) a movie that ran to packed houses for 200 days. She has co-starred all the actors (male and female) of the ’80s and ’90s. Then she got married and settled into domestic bliss for a few years and returned with Yashraj films “Aaja Nachle” in 2007. Since then we see her intermittently on-screen and being appreciated for the wide range of characters that she is playing. We also see her on television judging Dance Reality shows.

On to today’s song which is sung by Amit Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is written by Javed Akhtar. Going by the available video it looks like the song plays in parts and these have been uploaded as one whole. This song is almost similar to “tumse milke aisa laga tumse milke” from “Parinda”.
