'jaane do bhi yaaron' ko meri pirhi ke adhikaansh logaon ne doordarshan pr hi dekhaa. vaise bhi un dinon multiplex to the nhin to NFDC dvaaraa nirmit filmon kaa hum jaise chote shhron ke baashindon tak phunk paanaa behd mushkil thaa.

kishoraavsthaa ke dinon men dekhi is film kaa mainne khub aannd uthaayaa thaa. film kaa charchit sanvaad 'thodaa khaao thodaa fenko..., dimelo ke rup men film ke aadhe hisse men klti firti laash kaa kirdaar nibhaane vaale satish shaah kaa abhiny, tnejaa aur aahujaa ki dil pr plitaa lgaaataa vo secret call aur ant kaa mhaabhaart vaalaa drishy dshkon tk film naa dekhne ke baad bhi dimaaga se utraa nhin thaa isilie ye kitaab hmeshaa meri bhvisy men prhi jaane vaali kitaabon ki suki men aagae rhi.  pichle hfte jb dipaavli ki chuttiyon men 272 pristhon vaali is kitaab ko prhne kaa maukaa milaa to is film ke saare drishy ek ek kr fir se ubhrne lgae.

pr is kitaab ki baat krne se phle iske lekhak se aapkaa priky karaa dun. 1977 men jnme jay arjun singh vibhinn ptr ptrikaaon ke lie svtntr rup se likhte to rhe hi hain pr saath hi ve ek blogar bhi hain apne bloga Jabberwock pr filmon ke baare men niymit rup se likhte hain. unki dusri kitaab Popcorn Essayists : What Movies do to Writers ? 2011 men prkaashit hui thi.


arjun ne is kitaab ko tin ahm hisson men baantaa hai. phle hisse ki shuruaat vo film ke nirdeshk kundn shaah ke chaatr jivn se krte hain. ve paathkon ko btaate hain ki kis trh 'store attendant' kaa kaam krne vaalaa ye shakhs pune ke FTII jaa pahunchaa? kis trh vhaan se uttirn hone ke ki saalon baad uske mn men apni ek film bnaane ke spne kaa jnm huaa. apne aas paas ki pristhitiyon aur apne dost ki aap biti se prbhaavit ho kr kundn shaah jb is film ki ptkthaa likhne baithe tb jaakr is film ki khaani kaa praarup taiyaar huaa. kundn shaah, ranjit kapoor v saish kaushik ke sahyog se is film ki patkathaa kis trh viksit hui ye jaannaa is film ke kaahne vaalon ke lie to dilchasp hai hi pr saath hi film nirmaan ke dauraan ptkthaa men aane vaale privrtan ki prkriyaa film nirmaan ke prati hmaari smjh ko brhaati hai.

kitaab ke dusre sanchhipt hisse men film men kaam krne vaale kirdaaron ke kyn se jude mjeedaar tthy hain. kyaa aap sok skte hain ki film ke mukhy kirdaar aur sbse bde naam nasirudin shaah ko mehntaane ke rup men tb sirf 15000 rupye mile the. pnkj kpur, rvi vaasvaani, stish shaah, om puri jaise klaakaaron ki haalt to usse bhi gayi gaujri thi. pr saat laakh se thode jyaadaa bjt ki ye film paison ke lie nhin bni thi. ismen kaam krne vaale adhikaansh klaakaar apne kairiyr ke us pdaav pr the jhaan kuch akchaa aur saamaany se alga krne kaa jjebaa kisi bhi paarishrmik se khin oopr thaa. klaakaaron ki isi bhaavnaa ne film ki itni bdi sfltaa ki ninv rkhi.
is kitaab kaa sbse rokk hissaa tb aarnbh hotaa hai jb arjun paathkon ke saamne ismen aane vaale hr drishy ke piche ki khaani ko prt dr prt udhedte hain. aise to kisi bhi utpaad kaa mulyaankn uske aakheiri svrup ke aadhaar pr hotaa hai pr agar aap us utpaad ko us svrup tk laane ke lie aai mushkilon aur un kthinaaiyon pr saamuhik kestaaon ke bl pr paai vijy ke baare men jaan len to us utpaad ke prti aapkaa njeriyaa phle se jyaadaa gahn aur priskrit ho jaataa hai. kisi film ko phli baar dekhne vaalaa prde pr ghtne vaali ki baaton ko shj hi njerandaaj kr detaa hai. is kitaab ko prhne ke baad arjun dvaaraa likhi baaton ke mddenjer is film ko dobaaraa dekh rhaa hun aur hr drishy ke baare men ek alga anubhuti ho rhi hai. 


ab bhlaa aap hi bataaie 'tnejaa' aur 'aahujaa' ki meeting ke phle maare gaye chuhe ko dekh kr kyaa aap sokengae ki chuhe ki laash kaise jugaaadi gai hogi? mahaabhaart vaale drishy ke thik baad, laash ko le kr bhaagate kirdaaron ko burkaa pahne mhilaaon ki bhid men ghuste dekh kr kyaa aapko ye ajib lgaaa hogaaa ki in burkon kaa ranga sirf kaalaa kyun nhin hai? kyaa aap kalpanaa krengae ki satish kaushik aur nasir ke telephone vaale drishy men reciver ko niche ptkne ke bjaae nsir drishy ke logic ke pare hone ki vajah se apnaa sar patak rahe hongae? film ke niraashaajnk ant ko dekhkr khaan jaanaa thaa ki meri trh raj kapur ko bhi ye ant naagavaar gaujraa hogaaa? aisi tamaam ghtnaaon kaa is pustk men jikr hai jo aapko pustk se ant tk baandhe rkhti hai.

lekhk ne jhaan is film ke sarthak pakshon ko paathkon ke saamne rkhaa hai vhin iski kmiyon ki or ishaaraa krne se bhi gureje nhin kiyaa hai. kul milaakr intrnet pr dau sau rupyon men uplbdh ye kitaab un sbhi logaon ko psnd aaegai jinhen smaaj men vyaapt bhrstaakaar ko apne tikhe vyngayon se kkotti aur apni niraali ptkthaa se gaudgaudaati ye film hindi sinemaa men apni koti ki behtrin film lgati hai.

 Har koyi pyaar dhundata hai yahaan
 Apani tanhaa si jindagi ke liye
 Waqt rukata nahi kisi ke liye
 Na mohabbat na dosti ke liye
 Waqt rukata nahi kisi ke liye
 
 Waqt ke saath saath chalata rahe 
 Yahin behatar hai aadami ke liye

 Na mohabbat na dosti ke liye

Do Mein Se tumhein kya chahiye, Kalam ya ki talwar
Man mein oonche bhav ya tan mein shakti ajeya apaar

The poem which establishes the supremacy of pen over sword was so inspiring that I never forgot  these lines. On his birthday I recorded his poem in my voice & now I have put it on my Hindi Blog here.

Ek Shaam Mere Naam June Posts : Urdu ki Aakhri Kitab, Poems of Hariodh & Talat Mahmood's Jalte Hain Jiske Liye

Last month I finished a hilarious book of Ibne Insha. The book includes some very thought provoking but at the same time quite funny perspective with which Insha ji looks at our History, partition era , present political set up and decreasing social values. You can read my review on the book in two parts here..



  1. Urdu ki Aakhri Kitab : Insha ji ka anootha vyangya sangrah

  2. Insha ji ki Nazaron se dekhiye Bharat ka Itihaas aur suniye ek mazedar Kahani. 

Ayodhya Singh Upadhyay 'Hariodh's ' poems always attracted me  during my school days because of their simplicity and inherent deep meaning. It was always a pleasure to read out his poems because of beauty they possessed. I have selected two of his well known  poem and recited them on my Hindi blog. The poems were Boond and; Tinka.


Do listen these poems here ..
Khadiboli ke  Sardaar : Ayodhya Singh Upadhyay Hariodh


Those who love the era of music in 50's and 60's, will never forgot the velvet vibrating voice of Talat Mehmood. I remembered him by presenting his evergreen (and my favourite) no. Jalte Hain Jiske Liye Teri Aankhon Ke Diye...


Last month I also updated my Book List with additional feature of my own impressions as ratings.

ESMN May Posts: Shamshad Begum, Iftikhar Imam Siddiqui, Old aashiqui and Manoj Yadav's new song

Here is the summary of what happened in the last month on Ek Shaam Mere Naam

Shamshad Begum left us in the month of April. Here is a closer look on the Musical journey of Shamshad Begum in her life and; times.


Harivansh Rai Bachchan's poem still inspire us whenever we go through them. Here is one such poem Jad Ki Muskaan which I recorded in my voice. The poem tells us that on our way to success we often forget those people who contributed largely to it. Hope you will also love this poem as I do.




Aashiqui II brought back memories of melodious music of Nadeem Shravan's old Aashiqui. Let's remember those evergreen hits from the nineties again with this post of mine Ek wo Aashiqui thi..Ek Ye Aashiqui Hai..



On the Ghazal's front meet Iftikhar Imam Siddiqui . Haven't heard his name before but if you are an ardent admirer of Ghazals then I bet that you must have crooned his famous ghazal from Mahesh Bhatt's immortal movie Arth. Want to know which ghazal it was  then read on...


And to finish with round up of Ek Shaam Mere Naam's May posts lets hear out combination of a new composer duo Manoj Yadav and Gulraj Singh. Their song from  the movie Tutiya Dil (2012).. Paniyon ki chhat par boondon ke bheetar beh chalo is not only poetic but also easy on ears courtesy soothing voice of Meenal Jain with Gulraj's enchanting melody.

ESMN April Posts : Gulzar, Mehdi Hassan, Blog Anniversary and more

So what happened on Ek Shaam Mere Naam during last month. After completion of Annual Musical Countdown for the year 2012 it was time to discuss a bit of poetry and literature.

Gulzar and Vivek Ranade combined to produce a magical Calendar for the year 2013. Vivek Ranade's superb pics (related to the ways we use our good old newspaper) were given a new dimension by Gulzar's poetry. If you have not seen the calendar do see it here in my article Raddi Ka Akhbaar Aur Gulzar with my take on it.



I was avid reader of noted Bangla writer Bimal Mitra. His simple writing style and interesting plots always made me finish his novels in a few days. But recently when I read his book Aur Ek Yudhisthir , it disappointed me. If u want to know why read on..




Mehdi Hassan is always a class act when it comes to Ghazal singing. Incidentally while tuning to a cricket commentary quarter century ago I first heard Meer's soulful Ghazal Dekh to Dil ki Jaan se uthta hai..Ye Dhuan sa kahan se uthta hai. Read my memoirs of the ghazal along with meaning of this great ghazal in my article Cricket, Radio Aur Mehdi Hassan  :Dekh to Dil ki Jaan se uthta hai. You will be surprised to know that this Ghazal was used in one of the masterpiece of Hindi Film Cinema Pakeezah. Do you know who sang this version ? It was Naseem Bano Chopra.

Mehdi Hassan & Naseem Bano Chopra

 Annual Hindi Film Music Countdown for 25 best songs of the year.

    Annual Musical Countdown 2012 ..Varshik Sangeetmala 2012 : Song # 21-25

    Eight years ago when I started this blog one of the thing which was in my mind was to  highlight those new songs and artist behind them which are not that popular but are meaningful as well as melodious in nature. With this idea in mind the concept of Annual Musical Countdown or Varshik Sangeetmala started. Now in its ninth year let's see who were the stars of Hindi Film Music scene..:)

    Song  # 25 : Dil Ye Beqaraar Kyun Hai..Iss Pe Dhun Sawar Kyun Hai...

    A peppy number in youthful voice of Mohit Chouhan  (who has otherwise a lean year compare to the previous year) from the movie Players.

    Song # 24 : Pani Da Rang Dekh Ke

    Ayushman Khurana the new kid on the block strikes it rich with a number composed in his college days.

    Song # 23 : Mera Juta Fake Leather Dil Chhichhaledar..Wo humse poochha whether I like weather?

    You must be wondering is it a song or pure rubbish? But hold on read the story behind it and u will appreciate it more. Sneha Khanwalkar chose 12 year old Durga who earlier used to sing in trains for this song and the song just symbolically portrays the mayhem ( Chhichhaledar) in our society.

    Song #. 22 : Mera Saaiyan Re..

    Rahat Fateh Ali Khan was again a sought after singer this year but most of his numbers were unable to use his beautiful voice in a creative manner. This one from Heroine though strike a note in your heart.

    Song # 21 : Ala Ala Matwala Barfi

    Swanand Kirkire the gifted lyricist he is creates magic in constructing a naughty but emotional deaf and dumb character in this title song of Barfi..\


    So listen these songs on the detailed post related to these song on my Hindi Blog and tell me how good they were in your opinion. I will be back with next five songs on my countdown soon.
