HAPPY DIWALI.   
Nov,09,2007
 

A short note to wish all of you a very happy Diwali.

Have been going through your responses to the music. Its extremely encouraging to say the least. I''''ve got your immediate response and it is really heartening, but what I would really like is to hear your responses two weeks from now, after you have had a chance to hear the songs a few times over. Do they grow on you or do you start tiring of them?

I spent a couple hours last evening with Shammi Uncle the Elvis Presley of Indian Cinema (not as a singer but as a star). He is a close friend of my uncle Mr Nasir Husain who was himself one of the most sussessful directors of his time. I trained under Chachajaan as an assistant director for 4 years. His is not with us today but it would have been a very happy day for him. And I wanted Shammi Uncle to hear the music and wanted his blessings. Shammi Uncle is the coolest and I so enjoyed being with him. Very few people have the spirit of life that Shammi Uncle has and there is a lot to learn there. He showed me a picture that he keeps in his room of him and Chachajaan on the stes of one of the films they did together. I felt so happy and I wanted to share it with y''''all.

I''''m planning a sheduled chat soon and I''''ll keep you posted on that.

Take care, and have a great Diwali.

Much love.

since other fans are recommending thrillers to soffineer, though I liked Khamosh (Amol Palekar, Shabana Azmi) but in the recent years I liked Khaki (Amitab Bachan, Akhaya Kumar, Aiswariya). However hollywood makes better thrillers than bollywood, though bollywood makes better movies on human values. Just my view. Don't intend to start a debate.

Personally, I didn't like Khamoshi-The Musical. In fact , I can say I haven't really liked Sanjay Leela Bhansali's films. Well, I haven't seen Devdas, so can't comment on it.
And yeah there is this Hemant Kumar song in Khamoshi playing in the background where Waheeda Rehman is walking up the stairs and Dharmendra is standing in front of an open window or something like that. What's that song?

Praveer @ 2098: The "Asit Sen" who directed "Khamoshi" is NOT the "Asit Sen" who speaks slowly. Two entirely different people. I believe the "verrrrry slowly Asit Sen" directed a movie in the 50's called "Parivar". I haven't seen it but my information comes from a music/movie googlegroup which I read regularly.

Praveer - There was a 1985 movie called Khamosh. It was a suspense thriller starring Amol Palekar, Shabana Azmi, Naseeruddin Shah among others. That was good movie too.

ELES,
Khamoshi had a "few good songs"!!!!
Come on girl !! Don't forget Kishore's "Woh shaam Kuch ajeeb thi" and Hemant Kumar's "Tum pukar lo".
It was directed by ASIT SEN. Yeah the character actor of yesteryears who used to speak Veeeery slooowlly !!
