with money in Hindi films was a sure-shot Bad Person There were several kinds of villains but those in possession of loads of cash were automatically branded hoarders black-marketeers smugglers and thieves Or worse: the mere mention of money in fact was the marker of a character who we knew would either be derided or scoffed at or come to A Bad End In the1958 Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi the incomparable Kishore Kumar sang : “Tere liye majnu ban sakta hoon laila laila kar sakta hoon… lekin pehla de de mera paanch rupaiya barah anaa” We knew that the mention of that ridiculous sum in front of the stunning Madhubala is just a joke We are being set up for laughs and we chortle as we are meant to Just two years before in 1956 money (or the lack of it ) had raised its vile head in another Kishore starrer called simply Paisa Hi Paisa in which a miserly father would like his son to acquire a rich bride Again it is a comedy and we know that pyaar will win not paisa But money showed up in dark ways too Raj Kapoor’s poor gaon-wala in Jaagte Raho (1956) is mistaken for a chor and chased through the night by people who possess everything but goodwill and generosity That the middle classes were greedy and insensitive was very clearly the theme of Jaagte Raho: the divide between the noble suffering poor and the corrupt rich only got deeper down the decades The ’60s were full of wealthy fathers wearing velvet jackets and smoking pipes and delivering lectures on amiri and gareebi Being poor meant that you had to be a victim Moushumi Chatterjee’s character in the 1974 Roti Kapda aur Makaan undergoes a horrific rape on mounds of aata in a godown: the gap between the have-not woman and the aggressors all haves is as ugly as it has been in the movies as is the depiction of helplessness and humiliation that such economic privation can lead to When Amitabh Bachchan declared famously in Deewar (1974) “Main aaj bhi phenke huey paise nahinuthata” we are instantly aware of its rich irony Bachchan’s Vijay has been forced to cross over to the wrong side but we know that he is innately good that his pursuit of ill-gotten paisa will keep him away from the pyaar of his mehbooba and more importantly his ma and his redemption will lie only in his death Amitabh Bachchan in Deewar: Main aaj bhi phenke huey paisa nahinuthata The rich boy-poor girl trope got fresh wind in the 1989 blockbuster Maine Pyar Kiya when Salman Khan’s Prem and Bhagyashree’s Suman are split asunder because of the difference in their “status” That they come together in the end is a decisive win for pyaar not paisa The economic liberalisation in 1991 made India a different country The impact of the loosening up of the license raj and other restrictions kickstarted the creation of a new middle

have your cake and eat it too was the statement du jour of Dil Chahta Hai (2001) DCH broke away from the poor-are-good and the rich-are-evil templates that had been pretty much graven in Bollywood

Related News How a few wealthy dynasties dominate the nation’s politics and get even richer Last month the Election Commission of Pakistan manifesting its independence declared Nawaz Sharif one of the country’s richest parliamentarians and revealed his assets: six agricultural properties a house in Upper Mall Lahore Rs 126 million in seven bank accounts and other properties under the name of his wife making him a billionaire This may be explained by the fact that he belongs to an affluent family of businessmen His father Muhammad Sharif a Kashmiri from Amritsar who moved to Lahore in 1947 had slowly built up a smelting works He was stripped of his property in 1972 by the wave of nationalisation ordered by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto but the privatisation decided by Zia-ul-Haq (who blessed the elevation of Nawaz to the post of Punjab chief minister in 1985) helped the family recover its assets The Sharifs also benefited from the investments they made abroad including in Saudi Arabia where they returned (the family was already a regular visitor before) after Pervez Musharraf seized power in 1999 But when the Sharif family returned from exile it wasn’t this rich At that time Asif Ali Zardari was estimated to be the richest politician and second-richest man in Pakistan The Sharif brothers came fourth according to one ranking Such personal enrichment of politicians is related to the scale of corruption that affects Pakistan Zardari who in 2008 reportedly owned several estates in the UK and the US can in this regard be held up as a symbol In an investigative report for The New York Times John Burns showed that Zardari had not only spent $4 million to purchase Surrey Palace and spent $660000 in barely a month but also that this money indeed came from ill-gotten gains In 2003 the Swiss judiciary determined that Benazir Bhutto and Zardari were guilty of money laundering and had to return $115 million to the Pakistani state A gold bullion dealer also reportedly paid $10 million into the Bhutto-Zardari account after the Benazir government had granted him a monopoly on gold imports in Pakistan It is not for nothing that Zardari was known as “Mr 10 per cent” when he was minister Whether Nawaz has also enlarged his fortune by resorting to dubious means has not been established but the fact that the head of the executive has also become extremely rich is reminiscent of the kind of regime German sociologist Max Weber called “sultanism” a blend of the personalisation of power and patrimonialism he first detected in the Ottoman Empire While top leaders amass fortunes through largescale corruption there are other forms of corruption on a smaller scale involving National Assembly members A report by Pakistan Institute of Legislative Development and Transparency based on the declarations of assets by elected members of the assembly showed that in 2010 the average value of an assembly member’s assets was three times higher than the average value of assets of members of the previous National Assembly many being the same people The fact that politics pays explains to a large extent why it has become a family business: elected representatives not only try to transmit their ideological legacy to their scions but also their political business Most parties today are associated with a lineage This is of course the case of the PPP whose official head Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was so designated (along with its “regent” Asif Ali Zardari) by his mother Benazir’s handwritten testament in a practice that harks back to that of material inheritances The Bhutto-Zardari line (to which Zardari’s sister Faryal Talpur elected in Larkana in 2008 also belongs) is opposed by the one founded by Benazir’s brother Murtaza Bhutto whose widow Ghinwa established a separate PPP The other major party the PML-N is only in its first generation but has managed to maintain phratry unity because although Nawaz is the party “Quaid” his brother Shahbaz is the official chairman and has been chief minister of Punjab since 2008 The Awami National Party (ANP) has in some regard entered its third generation because even if Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan did not form a party he started a movement — the red shirts — which spawned the NAP created by his son Wali Khan whose son Asfandyar Wali Khan leads the ANP today The PML-Q also belongs to the club of the “three generation-plus” parties since the son of Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi (former chief minister of Punjab and son of Chaudhry Zahoor Elahi a lieutenant of Ayub Khan after 1962) Chaudhry Moonis Elahi was elected to the Punjab assembly in 2008 These lineage practices are also becoming customary among the Islamic parties Maulana Fazlur Rehman succeeded his father Mufti Mahmud as head of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam — or at least the faction that bears his name the JUI(F) Anas Noorani also replaced his father Shah Ahmad Noorani as head of Jamiat-e-Ulema Pakistan and the Jamaat-e-Islami despite its being known for the key role played by ideology is also affected to a lesser extent as the daughter of former leader Qazi Hussain Ahmad was elected to the parliament The percentage of members of the National Assembly and members of provincial assemblies who belong to a political family increased from 37 per cent in 1970 to 50 per cent in 1993 before falling to 44 per cent in 2008 according to The Herald Since 1970 597 families have controlled 3300 seats out of the 7600 across generations The Legharis have had 14 elected representatives in the family since 1970 During the last general election in May 2013 the popularity of Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf partly reflected the rejection of this political class by the urban middle class Like its Indian homologue this social group was looking for new clean politicians out of dynastic politics But the PTI could only come second in terms of valid votes and third in terms of seats Well-entrenched parties are not easy to dislodge from power precisely because they have money and muscle And the urban middle class is in a minority anyway Sultanism therefore may continue to prevail in Pakistan all the more so as the army has also become a kind of commercial enterprise This process whose outcome Ayesha Siddiqa called “military inc” or “milbus” (for military business) uses foundations the oldest and largest of which is the Fauji Foundation (FF) The FF has developed its own business enterprises from sugar mills to cement factories The air force followed its example and established the Shaheen Foundation (which manufactures a wide variety of products from pharmaceuticals to shoes) and the navy has the Bahria Foundation (which aside from manufacturing paint is also involved in industrial bread-making) If armymen become businessmen they may also indulge in corruption and create dynasties The writer is senior research fellow at CERI-Sciences Po/ CNRS Paris professor of Indian Politics and Sociology at King’s India
