हृषिकेश मुखर्जी के फ़िल्मी रंगमंच के ज़िन्दगी से भरे पांच फ़िल्मी किरदार

हृषिकेश मुखर्जी, सिनेमा का वो दीपक हैं जो तब तक जलता रहेगा जब तक सिनेमा रहेगी. हृषिदा जादूगर थे, सिनेमा के वो जादूगर जिनका जादू आज भी हमको मंत्रमुग्ध करता है. चाहे वो अनारी हो या आनंद, गुड्डी हो या गोलमाल, नौकरी हो या नमक हराम, खूबसूरत हो या चुपके चुपके, अनुपमा हो या सत्यकाम, बावर्ची हो या मेमदीदी, हर एक फिल्म एक सौगात है हम आमजनता के लिए. ये कहानियां उन्होंने इसलिए सुनायीं क्योंकि ये हमारी कहानियां थीं. आज उनका ९१वां जन्मदिन है…आइये मिलते हैं हृषिदा की फिल्मों सबसे जीवंत और अनूठे किरदारों से….

आनंद मरा नहीं, आनंद मरते नहीं

आनंद मरा नहीं, आनंद मरते नहीं


आनंद

दिल्ली से जब आनंद सहगल अपना इलाज कराने मुंबई आता है तो मुंबई में वो एक डॉक्टर को छोड़कर किसी को भी नहीं जानता, बस इतना जानता है, वो अब ज्यादा जीने नहीं वाला. मुंबई आकर वो अपनी बची हुई ज़िन्दगी लोगों से दोस्ती करने में बिताता है. दोस्तों की ज़िन्दगी में खुशियाँ भरने में लगाता है, मरने से पहले यही उसका आखरी काम रह जाता है. वो अपने पेशे से मायूस डॉक्टर भास्कर को ज़िन्दगी का मतलब सिखाता है. वो डॉक्टर भास्कर को ये सिखाता है, की ज़िन्दगी लम्बी नहीं बड़ी होनी चाहिए.

अब आप ही बताइए, जब TO टू, DO डू, तो GO गू क्यों नहीं....

अब आप ही बताइए, जब TO टू, DO डू, तो GO गू क्यों नहीं….


प्रोफेसर परिमल त्रिपाठी

धर्मेन्द्र ने कई शानदार फिल्में की हैं, पर वो अगर किसी एक किरदार के लिए हमेशा किलकारियों के साथ याद किये जाते हैं तो वो है प्रोफेसर परिमल त्रिपाठी, जो की उन्हें हृषिकेश मुखर्जी की फिल्म चुपके चुपके में मिला. फिल्म चुपके चुपके में प्रोफेसर परिमल त्रिपाठी का किरदार यक़ीनन बॉलीवुड के सबसे ज्यादा कॉमिक किरदारों में से है. प्रोफेसर त्रिपाठी के ‘जिज्जा जी‘, उनकी बीवी सुलेखा की नज़र में भगवान् हैं. जैसे एक मयान में दो तलवारें नहीं रह सकतीं वैसे ही एक मनमंदिर में दो भगवान् कैसे रहे. इसलिए बॉटनी के प्रोफेसर परिमल त्रिपाठी, पहुँच जाते हैं जीजा जी …के ‘जीवन में विश घोलने’… एक अत्यंत शुद्ध हिंदी बोलने वाला वाहनचालक यानी ड्राईवर बन के, फिर क्या है, जीजा जी की ज़िन्दगी नर्क हो जाती है और परिमल अपने मकसद में कामयाब हो जाता है.

ये सब तो हम 'निर्मल आनंद ' के लिए कर रहे हैं

ये सब तो हम ‘निर्मल आनंद ‘ के लिए कर रहे हैं


मंजू

मंजू का किरदार यक़ीनन हृषिकेश मुखर्जी द्वारा रचे गए सबसे आज़ाद ख़याल किरदारों में से एक था, मंजू अल्हड है, शरारती है, बेहद खुश मिजाज़ है और सूरत ही नहीं, दिल से भी बड़ी खूबसूरत है.फिल्म आनंद के आनंद और फिल्म खूबसूरत की मंजू में काफी समानताएं हैं, आनंद की तरह उसे भी दोस्त बनाने का बड़ा शौक है, दोनों ही मानते हैं, की ज़िन्दगी जितनी हंसी ख़ुशी में गुज़रे उतना अच्छा. दोनों ही मानते हैं, की समय की तलवार के साए में ज़िन्दगी नहीं कट सकती, पर ख़ुशी बांटते हुए ज़िन्दगी जीने से वो अपने लिए ही नहीं दूसरों के लिए भी गुलज़ार हो जाती है इतना ही नहीं  मंजू और आनंद दोनों को ही नियम तोड़ने का बड़ा शौक है, और दोनों ही ज़िन्दगी को अनमोल मानते हैं इसीलिए शायद आनंद हो या खूबसूरत,इन किरदारों के माध्यम से हृषिदा आपको ज़िन्दगी के पल पल को जीना सिखाते हैं. ज़िन्दगी जियो तो निर्मल आनंद के लिए, कहती है मंजू.

इट्स सो सिंपल तो बि हैप्पी, बट इट्स सो डिफिकल्ट तो बी सिंपल

इट्स सो सिंपल तो बि हैप्पी, बट इट्स सो डिफिकल्ट तो बी सिंपल

रघु

रघु एक बावर्ची है, पर शान्ति निवास के अशांत निवासियों के लिए रघु फ़रिश्ता है. जब वो इस घर में आता है तो देखता है की परिवार रुपी माला के सभी फूल बिखरे हुए हैं, और मुर्जाये जा रहे हैं. वो धीरे धीरे इन्हें एक माला में पिरोता है और फिर चुप चाप निकल जाता है एक दुसरे अशांत घर की तलाश में जहां उसकी ज़रुरत है. आज के समय में कोई भी सुपरस्टार एक खाकी निक्कर वाला बावर्ची बनने को भले ही न राज़ी हो पर उस समय रघु को सुपरस्टार राजेश खन्ना ने शान के साथ अदा किया. ज़िन्दगी में खुशियाँ ज़रूरी हैं, हर कोई अपनी ज़िन्दगी खुश रहने के लिए ही जीता है, ये बावर्ची अनूठा है, ये बावर्ची झूठा है, ये बावर्ची भी आनंद, परिमल और मंजू की तरह बड़ी बकबक करता है पर इसकी बक बक में भी ज़िन्दगी की कई सीखें छुपी हुई हैं. ये बावर्ची बताता है की जीवन की खुशियाँ एक दुसरे को मुस्कुराने में ही हासिल की जा सकती हैं.

जिसका नाम भवानी शंकर हो वो तो पैदा होते ही बुद्धा हो हया समझो

जिसका नाम भवानी शंकर हो वो तो पैदा होते ही बुद्धा हो हया समझो


रामप्रसाद और लक्ष्मनप्रसाद

याद आया कौन सी फिल्म की बात की जा रही है? बात की जा रही है बॉलीवुड की सबसे शानदार कोमेडिज़ में से एक गोलमाल की. फिल्म गोलमाल का रामप्रसाद मुसीबत का मारा है, उसको नौकरी की सख्त ज़रूरत है पर नौकरी देने वाले भवानी शंकर अजीब किस्म के इंसान हैं, जो इंसान को उसकी मूंछ और पहनावे से आंकते हैं, रामप्रसाद पहनावा तो बदल लेता है पर साथ ही नौकरी बचने के लिए उसको अपने जुड़वाँ भाई लक्षमणप्रसाद होने का नाटक भी करना पड़ता है. दोनों को मिलाकर कर अब उसका बस एक ही मकसद है, भवानीशंकर को ये सिखाना की किताब का कवर देखकर ये नहीं बताया जा सकता की उसके अन्दर क्या लिखा है. रामप्रसाद भी आनंद, रघु, परिमल और मंजू की तरह मस्त मौला है, नौटंकी करना उसे अच्छा लगता है और वो भी इन सब की तरह नियम और कायदे कानून में बंधी हुई ज़िन्दगी के खिलाफ है. हृषिदा द्वारा उकेरा गया रामप्रसाद उर्फ़ लक्ष्मनप्रसाद भारतीय सिनेमा पटल का वो किरदार है जो सदियों तक जिंदा रहेगा.

We all know that our Film Industry is struggling with the lack of original ideas and concepts. Even India’s official entry for the Academy Awards – Oscars for this year – Newton is facing charges of plagiarism as it has a lot of similarities with Iranian Film – The secret Ballot. In the industry where writers are at the lowest of the food chain of filmmaking, it is very difficult to find original stories but India is a country of more than a billion and if we just try to pick real stories like – “Neerja” and “Dangal” there will be enough original content to conquer the invasion of International Entertainment.

So let’s find out what we can do –

1. APJ ABDUL KALAM- The story of a Newspaper boy from Rameshwaram to the President of India is definitely is a story that needs to be told. A man, his determination, his passion and his simplicity is something that inspired and transcends to every Indian and even to the people outside India. This is one story we would love to see coming alive on the screen.  former-president-apj-abdul-kalam-5-pti21





2. SATYENDRA NATH BOSE – was an Indian physicist from Bengal specializing in theoretical physics. He is best known for his work on quantum mechanics in the early 1920s, providing the foundation for Bose-Einstein statistics and the theory of the Bose-Einstein condensate. A Fellow of the Royal Society, he was awarded India’s second highest civilian award, the Padma Vibhushan in 1954 by the Government of India.The class of particles that obey Bose-Einstein statistics, bosons, was named after Bose by Paul Dirac. Can we expect “A beautiful mind” sort of science drama here?physics-t-shirt_feature-image-635x800

3. MAJOR DHYANCHAND – Though Shetty Sisters (Aarti & Pooja ) have acquired the rights of making the movie on this sports legend of India Major Dhyan Chand long time ago, the development of the film seems dicey and looks like it’s still a dream to see some one playing this great sports person on screen. We all know that National Sports Day is celebrated on the birthday of this forgotten hero of our country who face to face clash with Adolf Hitler was one of the most dramatic incidents of his story. We all are waiting for this story to be told soon. 600999-dhyanchand700





4. RAVI SHANKAR- World Class Musician. The face of Indian Classical Music. 2 Marriages, Failed Relationships. Father of famous world-class musicians and their rivalry. From Grammy to Bharat Ratna, Pandit Ravi Shankar’s life story is definitely a story of a true artist. But can we get the rights from his daughters?The late sitarist, composer and musical ambassador Ravi Shankar, who died Tuesday at age 92.

5. ISMAT CHUGTAI- Ismat Chugtai popularly known as Ismat Aapa was a fierce Urdu writer who was not afraid to talk about female sexuality at the repressed times. Surrounded by the controversies of her writings, Ismat Aapa was never apologetic about her work. We all know the famous case of “Lihaaf” and the proceedings of it. This liberal Muslim woman was a voice that definitely needs to tell again on the screen. ismat-large

6. GURU DUTT- We all say that screen is inspired by the real life, but in case of Guru Dutt, his life imitates his own film “Kagaz Ke Phool” and “Pyaasa”. The legendary filmmaker had a successful career but failed love life and he finally ends up his own life. What leads to that? Why he also said –“Yeh Duniya Agar Mil bhi Jaye toh kya hai?” Aren’t we all still curious about him?gurudutt





  1. 7. SANJIV KUMAR – Very fewer people know this fact that this brilliant actor was in love with Hema Malini and even proposed her but after a period of time Hema has chosen Dharmendra over him and he lived rest of his life unmarried. Though he played a lot of old aged characters on screen he himself died young. This one-sided love story of a great actor is definitely something to look for. sanjeev-kapoor





8. CHAVI RAJAWAT – You may not be heard of her but her story is no less. After doing MBA Chavi left her job and came back to her roots, her village Soda in Rajasthan and fought the election to become the youngest sarpanch ever without getting affiliated to any political party.  The development work that she has done on the grass root level is really inspirational. Can we see this as a “Swades 2” but this time with a female lead? 

maxresdefault

9. RANI KARNAVATI – Again a story very few people know. This brave queen of Gharwal region fiercely protects her kingdom from the invasion of Mughals. It was pretty famous that she used to cut the nose of anyone who used to intrude. Her folklore is pretty famous in Uttrakhand. Sanjay Leela Bhansali / Kangana Ranaut – Are you guys thinking for a collaboration? This might be the best. nak-kati-rani

10. KISHORE KUMAR – A singer, A comedian, an accidental Actor, a flamboyant personality, romantic and extremely moody, quirky and talented. Kishore Kumar was a true artist but an amazing human being. Her relationships and friendships were always talks of the tinsel town. Last we heard that Anurag Basu wants to make this biopic with Ranbir Kapoor. We just hope that Jagga won’t disturbs this collaboration. kishore-kumar-eccentric

So…yesterday Yashraj released Chapter 1 of the trailer of ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’, Yashraj’s next movie that is to release on 12th of May 2017. While the first chapter was ‘Cheesy’ feelgood trailer, this one is a bit different…

Second Chapter of this trailer is called ‘Gabbar aur Samba’

No points for guessing WHO IS ‘THE’ GABBER, This trailer is a Parineeti Chopra show. Nostalgia which is the central emotion of this movie, as the director Akshay Roy has quoted yesterday, this part of the trailer focuses around ‘Nostalgia’ of the college days…the track in Back Ground is ‘Duniya mein logon ko dhokha kabhi ho jaata hai’


Continuing from last trailer, Bindu aka Gabbar is a Brat now. She knows how to get things done. She is seen bossing around the love-struck Abhimanyu aka Samba in this trailer and sets up the mood of the next trailer, and also gives a hint that while Abhi is in love Bindu has completely friend-zoned Abhi…Now what is an answer we will get in Trailer 2.

‘Gabbar aur Sambha’, is in a few ways better than the last one. Its smart, funny and sassy… Parineeti makes this one a joy ride. Not to say that this trailer will remind you of Parineeti’s previous performances…Ladies v/s Ricky Behl and Ishqzaade. Not in a bad way though because Parineeti carries sassy girls character with each.

Third part will drop in tomorrow…Lets talk about it tomorrow…

Today, Indian cinema has lost one of the finest actors in the industry. He was a director’s actor, he had no comfort zone, and he had the caliber to make every zone a comfortable and natural one for him.
From being a student at the national school of drama to the Padma Shri award winner his journey in Bollywood is filled with different characters, genres and great acting. He proved that ultimately acting skills are the most important thing in the industry and there is no replacement for it.
Comedy, antagonist, lover, father, ardent and youngster you name it and he has done all kind of roles giving us the best movies ever.
Here, are some of his favorite’s characters on screen.




Anant Walenkar – ArdhSatya

sadashivamrapurkar-ardh-satya

The potrayal of a helpless but honest Police Inspector fighting against the fragile system and his own demons, makes this movie a Master Class for the Actors. That cry in the end can make you feel sink.




Ahuja- Jaane Bhi do Yaaro

jbdy2
The drunk contractor from the classic cult comedy movie, his acting skills and comedy timings and the Punjabi accent added charm to the movie.

Abu Miyan- Mirch masala

maxresdefault-2
The person, who stood against the British raj and society to protect the dignity of a woman. He played the role of a much older person and justified it to every bit.

Durgaprasad Bharadwaj- Chachi 420

18phones3
We all loved this funny wannabe detective, who despite his all failed attempts wanted to solve the mystery of Chachi.




Sanathan- Maachis

mqdefault
a victim of communal and political violence who has taken up a different way now to restore basic civil rights and dignity of common people in the country. He was intense at the same time emotional in the movie. This was one of his best performances in Bollywood.




Khadak Singh- Hera Pheri

maxresdefault-3
He can be zealous on screen but humor is his right hand’s work. We all loved how this Sardar will always come after Shyam and every time will return empty hand, his dialogue delivery made this movie a fun ride for us.




Bagheera- Jungle book

1458638380
He just gave his voice for Bagheera. But, it was not like any other dubbing, he made it more special for us because of the love and warmth he had in the voice.
These few memorable characters just show how versatile he was as an actor and indeed Indian cinema has lost a veteran actor today.

“Sahiban, life’s as temporal as a dream. But those who die for love are remembered. Laila, Sassi, and Heer are now revered. Let’s pray before God to give our love a pleasant end” – Hafiz Barkhurdar

Love stories – they last a few hours, months or years. But we’re here to tell you to love stories that have been retold for centuries (and will probably be heard by your great-great-grand children too!)

We’re not talking Romeo-Juliet here, but our very own, desi love stories of Heer-Ranjha, Mirza-Sahiban, Sassi-Punnu and Sohni-Mahiwal – all in Ishq Aaha! All with a mazedaar twist.

This foot tapping musical will tickle your heart, tease your senses and make you wonder – what does love really mean?

So if you are feeling fed up from the cinema that is not making any sense and if you are a theater lover, just do not miss this play, loaded with emotions, romance, music, the drama, and tears. All the ingredients that makes it a standout.
