अतीत के कुछ और चलचित्र या किस्सा-ए-हॉलीवुड

अभी सलीमा की एक ताजा प्रविष्ठि में हमारे वरिष्ठ फिल्म समीक्षक प्रमोद सिंह ने अतीत के प्रति मुग्ध होकर देखने के खतरों के प्रति चेताया भी मगर उसके बावजूद मैं उन पुरानी फिल्मों के जादू से छुटकारा नहीं पा सका हूं. मुझे पता है कि आज मेरी संवेदना का स्तर दोबारा देखे जाने पर उन फिल्मों को काफी बचकाना मानेगा. जिस सिंदबाद एंड द आइज़ आफ टाइगर को मैं नौ साल की उम्र में हतप्रभ होकर देखता और स्वप्न बुनता था, दोबारा देखने पर वह सिर्फ बचकाने कैमरा ट्रिक वाली फिल्म लगी.

मगर हॉलीवुड का लार्जर दैन लाइफ सिनेमा मुझे बचपन से ही चकित करता रहा. अस्सी के दशक में इलाहाबाद में खूब अंग्रेजी फिल्में लगा करती थी. बचपन में परिवार के साथ सिनेमा देखने जाते समय हॉलीवुड की फिल्मों के पोस्टर और ट्रेलर मानो हमारे सामने कोई दूसरी दुनिया ही खड़ी कर देते थे, जो ज्यादा रोमांचक और उत्सुकता जगाने वाली थी. मुझे सिनेमा हॉल के कॉरीडॉर में लगे रिटर्न आफ दि ड्रैगन, द बीज़, द लीगेसी, नार्थ बाई नार्थ वेस्ट जैसी फिल्मों के पोस्टर आज भी याद हैं. उस वक्त हॉलीवुड शब्द हम मिडिल क्लास के लिए अनजान था, हम उसे अंग्रेजी या पश्चिमी सिनेमा के नाम से ही जानते थे. हाथ में गन और मुंह में सिगार लिए मर्दाना हीरो और अर्धनग्न सुंदरियों की यह एक अलग दुनिया थी.

उन दिनों वहां के अखबारों में अंग्रेजी फिल्मों के बहुत बड़े-बड़े विज्ञापन छपा करते थे. मुझे याद है मैकेनाज़ गोल्ड इलाहाबाद में लगी थी तो आधे पेज का एड प्रकाशित हुआ था. मैंने पहली कायदे की कोई अंग्रेजी फिल्म जो देखी वह थी स्टीवेन स्पिलबर्ग की क्लोज एनकाउंटर्स आफ दि थर्ड काइंड… इसके बारे में मैंने थोड़ा बहुत पत्रिकाओं में पढ़ भी रखा था. यह शायद मेरी पहली साइंस फिक्शन थी, उसे देखना लगभग अंतरिक्ष की सैर करने जैसा ही था. तो उत्सुकता से धड़कते दिल से जब मैं यह फिल्म देखने पहुंचा तो अपने आप को बहुत भाग्यशाली समझ रहा था. इसके बाद देखी एंटर दि ड्रैगन, फ्लैश गार्डेन और स्टार वार्स सिरीज़ की फिल्में…

उन दिनों अंग्रेजी सिनेमा देखने वाला एक खास वर्ग हुआ करता था. एक खास किस्म का एलीट क्लास… सिर्फ पैसे वाला नहीं कुछ इंटेलेक्चुअल भी… सिनेमा के साथ उन्हें देखना भी दिलचस्प होता था. अखबारों में तब अंग्रेजी फिल्मों के बारे में कुछ खास नहीं निकलता था मगर भाई से सुन-सुनकर और कुछ पत्रिकाओं में पढ़ कर सीन कॉनरी, जीन पॉल बेलमांडो (ज़्यां पॉल बेलमोंदो), जॉन सैक्सन, ब्रूस ली और जॉन ट्रैवेल्टा (जॉन ट्रवोल्‍टाः सही उच्चारण बताने के लिए प्रमोद जी को आभार) को जान गया था.

अभी बस इतना ही… बाकी किस्सा-ए-हॉलीवुड की अगली कड़ी में..
