We all love change right?

Yup! As we progress in our lives, we try to make things better and better for people around us. Changing anything does not mean that you completely change everything but keeping previous good elements and eliminating or improving on flawed ones.
So here comes my newly "dressed up" blog. :D

Shah Jo Risalo - Intro

Shah Jo Risalo - Intro

I've decided to narrate the series of poems of Shah jo Risalo written by Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai (SALB). The book consists of 29 poems in total. Every poem has been given a title of "Sur" meaning "a musical note". Every sur or note is then divided into different stories (daastaan), like first poem is divided into 3 stories. Some stories have concluding...

Imagination versus speed of light!

Imagination versus speed of light!

The only problem in conversion of matter into energy is the speed of light. According to Einstien:

"We can convert any object into energy, if we throw it or move it with the square of speed of light."

Remembering Waheed Murad - The Painted Gate to a different World

When anyone talks about the history Pakistani cinema, his discussion won't be considered as "complete" until and unless he talks about Waheed Murad (October 2, 1938 – November 23, 1983), The Legend of Pakistani cinema, also known as "Chocolate Hero" and "Lady Killer"

He was a writer, producer, director and an actor who created such an impact on Pakistani cinema industry that the age got a label of "Rising Sun" He even won awards like "Sitara-i-Imtiaz" and "Nigar Awards" for his amazing and astounding works.

Talking about myself, Waheed Murad just changed my mindset regarding Pakistani cinema. Like many others, unfortunately, I also thought of classic Pakistani movies as obsolete and of no use, having no meaning and purpose, until I came to know about this specific song, "Aakhri baar mil rahey hain hum" (Meeting for the last time):

Song: Aakhri baar mil rahe hain hum
Singer: Mehdi Hassan
Film: Ishara (Urdu - 1969)
Music: Sohail Ra'na
Lyrics: Masroor Anwar
Director & Producer: Waheed Murad
Actors: Waheed Murad, Deeba & Co.
Permalink: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNxI9syVYl4

It's from the film "Ishara", the only movie directed by Waheed Murad himself. He also wrote the script of this movie as well. In the beginning of the song, Amir (Waheed Murad) is thinking about his love  Aliya (Deeba) as they both are going to depart soon. Now as you can see, Amir (who's a painter by profession) is staring at his own creation, painting of a gate, and "uses" this gate to enter a different World altogether.

As I mentioned that it's his own creation, WM is hinting that he's gone not into a strange World, it's "his own" inner World, where he expresses his grief by singing "Aakhri baar mil rahey hain hum, ao phr kyun na muskura k milen...." (We are meeting for the last time, so why not meet with smiles on our faces)

If we observe, the stage, dresses of dancers, colors of their dresses, the whole setup is arranged to go with the projection of his "self". At the end of the song, the same gate has been shown with "position" of Amir being the only difference. He gets locked inside this World.... and returns with a different experience (movie goes to color from black and white) :o

This is a (little) observation of just one song of this movie. God knows how many messages and philosophies are hidden in his other films.

Although, November 23, 1983 marks his death anniversary, but he can be seen alive in his works, his films, his philospohies, his messages, his love towards the people of Pakistan, his devotion to make films for "Every single person" living in Pakistan.

People have started getting your "hidden" messages Mr. Chocolate Hero. :D

Really...

    Waheed Murad’s work is such unique that I personally have seen some of his films several times again and again and have always enjoyed the more on every viewing. This song of film Ishara is so beautifully rendered and captured that it always inspires anew. This song tells a complete story, and although is part of the film but independently it is has a story in itself.

  2. True! It seems like a standard 2.5-3 hours film but it alone has got enough content, messages and philosophies to write a book :D

    Something new which I learnt from your post: "If we observe, the stage, dresses of dancers, colors of their dresses, the whole setup is arranged to go with the projection of his 'self'."

  4. no doubt , since the time we have studied his career and life in different perspective, we are learning totally new dynamics in his write-ups, videos and productions.

  5. Thanks for commenting Sir :)
    Yeah i reached there by:
    Painting > Creativity > Comes from inside
    So:
    Representation of inner will be the setup of the clip as the camera goes "inside him"

  6. It's very nice to see you here Hena :)
    Thanks... Keep visiting

  7. I discovered Waheed  Murad I think in 2011.I was watching a Bengali movie.Suddenly I saw someone uploaded a Pakistani movie.I was never impressed by some of the Pakistani movies.I always felt they only have Sabiha and Santosh in their industry.
    I would not have watched Waheed's movie Doraha,but something about it made me curious.I therefore decided to watch it.I was amazed to see that Pakistani  film industry had an actor,who was so handsome,educated,in other words he seemed to possess all the qualities of a super star.Since that day I have bought all the movies of Waheed I could lay my hands on.
    One thing that troubled me the most is why did the industry give him such a hard time.I have not seen another actor who could take his place and I doubt very much,it will happen in the future.
    Whether they agree or not,I know these people are regretting!

  8. Thank you for commenting Chaman,

    yes you are not wrong in saying that our film industry gave him a tough time, but on the other hand, he was still able to pull off his amazing projects (like "ishara" etc) even facing the resistance.

    He was a true legend. I consider him as one of the best Creative Minds of Pakistan. Just observe the level of giving food to audience's souls. He was making them grow, silently.
