Dard e dil dard e jigar dil mein jagaaya aap ne

Posted on: September 4, 2012


After the box office failure of “Mera Naam Joker”(1970), Raj Kapoor was a shaken and disillusioned man. When he decided to make a comeback, he decided to play safe and he made a teenage love story and not a serious philosophical movie. The old musical team that had served him well for the past two decades was summarily discarded and a new musical team was signed up for “Bobby”(1973).

Laxmikant Pyarelal were signed up for Bobby. Laxmikant Pyarelal were very excited on getting this assignment of the prestigious R K Banner. They planned to create some songs to be sung by Rafi for the movie.

But Laxmikant Pyarelal got a rude shock when they were told by Raj Kapoor that the playback singing for Rishi Kapoor would be done by a new singer namely Shailendra Singh. Laxmikant Pyarelal protests were brushed aside by Raj Kapoor. Rishi Kapoor is a teenager and middle aged singers giving playback for him will sound unnatural- that is what Laxmikant Pyarelal were told. So Laxmikant Pyarelal had to revise their plans and create their music with a new voice. The movie was a hit and the songs of “Bobby”(1973) too became popular.

If it was thought that Shailendra Singh would become the voice of Rishi Kapoor the way Mukesh had become the voice of his father then it did not happen that way. In subsequent movies of Rishi Kapoor, music directors, who were not bound by Raj Kapoor’s wishes chose Kishore Kumar, the then reigning king among male playback singers and Kishore Kumar responded with a song like O hansini mere hansini(Zahreela insaan) among other songs.

Rafi too sang for Rishi Kapoor in “Laila Majnu” (1976) and other movies.

“Karz”(1980) was a Subhash Ghai movie with Laxmikant Pyarelal’s music. Those were the days when Hindi movie music was undergoing a change and “Disco” movie had become popular among music lovers. Laxmikant Pyarelal too composed “Disco” brand of music in “Karz” (1980). The songs of “Karz” (1980) became extremely popular and they have remained popular even today.

It is interesting to note that Laxmikant Pyarelal used the voices of Kishore Kumar as well as Rafi as playback singers for Rishi Kapoor in this movie and both these singers delivered songs that became extremely popular.

I have discussed two songs from this movie which were sung by Kishore Kumar and picturised on Rishi Kapoor. Here is a song from “Karz”(1980) which is sung by Rafi and it is picturised on Rishi Kapoor.

This song, like the other songs from the movie has gone on to become a timeless classic. Listening to the audio of this song was a wonderful experience those days and that magic has not yet worn off even today, more than three decades later.Watching the picturisation of the song on the big screen in a housefull movie hall in the night show was a magical experience for me. Those were the days !

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by nahm.

Here is wishing Rishi Kapoor a happy birthday (4 september) and many happy returns of the day.

Another lovely song sung onscreen by the most chocolatey hero of our times 🙂 Rishi!

Like

Intentionally or not, people often copy the actions of others.
Sabbir Kumar…thought he would be the voice of Rafi…As per subbir Kumar recollections, at thetime of funeral of Rafi Saab, he wrote that his pen was buried with his casket. And he thought he should carry the voice of Rafi, but he just slipped away after few songs.
In the voice of Shailendra one can hear some vibes of Mukeshji, but he went down as quick as his voice had came up. The voice of Subir Sen and Dwijen Mukherjee , a very much like…Hemantda…They did good but not as good as they should have done.
Rajiv Kapoor, had a charisma of acting, some how people saw his acting was very similar to his uncle Shammiji. On other hand, resemblance in his look of Randhirji was very much to his mamaji- Premnath-, when people was expecting him to be another Raajji.
A son of Shashi Kapoor, Kunal, with his western look…people just rejected him.
Some times Lady Luck…do play part in everything.

Well, people of India have love Rishi…because he is just…himself…
Very many Happy returns of the day, Happy Birth day, Rishi Raaj…

Just curious. All these people (especially women) who watched Rishi grew up into the most chocolatey or the most romantic hero ever, etc, how would they feel about him portraying a homosexual character in Karan Johar’s upcoming Student of the Year?

It doesn’t matter, and quite honestly,“straight-acting” as a gay man, will be more approachable in Indian society.
I hope they shouldn’t make light hearted drama but go to the core of the message.
It’s OK to be different.

The question I posed was not about if its OK to be gay or not. It was about how people would feel. Lot of people felt deceived with Rock Hudson, the romantic star and u r old enough to remember. Discussion is not about whether its ok to be gay or not. Hope u get the idea.

I gave the answer as he is straight man and playing gay character will not make him any less of a man, Rishi doesn’t have prove…that he he is ladies man, but about Rock Hudson…he was a gay in real life but he never played a gay character in film.
.If they’re going to do a “gender bender” list, there are plenty more actual gender bending roles to choose from!
Here:
Patrick Swayze (To Wong Foo), Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis (Some Like It Hot), Dustin Hoffman (Tootsie), Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari (TV’s Bosom Buddies), Julie Andrews (Victor/Victoria), Robin Williams (Mrs. Doubtfire), Mary Martin (Peter Pan), Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans (White Chicks), Martin Lawrence (Big Momma’s House), Eddie Murphy (too many), Barbra Streisand (Yentl), Hilary Swank (Boys Don’t Cry), Felicity Huffman (Transamerica), Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs), Amanda Bynes (She’s The Man), etc.; not to mention comedians like Flip Wilson and Milton Berle.

ONe more…that all-American icon Tom Hanks played a gay man with HIV in Philadelphia (1993).

Thanks. But thats all hollywood 🙂 Homosexuality is a way of life in USA for many many decades, but that hasnt been the norm in India. Huffington post can write that even Mahatma Gandhi was gay and that Indian government paid off to British to buy off his love letters. Now that news may cause riots in India.

My comment/interest was more related to how INDIAN audiences (especially ones who grew up in that era idolizing him) would perceive their romantic hero in his new avatar. Thats all. Not trying to make this into a debate regarding homosexuality.

At the end of the day, its all acting. Like Neetu Singh best put it in one of her interviews – “Everyone thinks Rishi is a very romantic person, but he is not like that in real life at all. He never brings me flowers or sing songs for me or writes me love letters” 🙂

Oh, I can write so much on this subject. All the scriptures (Vedas, Purans.Upnishads) convey the subtle messages treading a fine line between the clear message they’re writing.
Why half brother Laxman goes with Ram? Why Queen Kaikey listens to her chember maid? What kind of special relation Krishna-Arjun and later with Subhadra they had?
Why Balaraam was crazy for Krishna? When Draupadi was with one of the five bros What other four did?.
Let’s talk the film world… all the top executives always keep a tel-malish guy/chauffeur/maid near by and evenat the night time.
Sorry to say but Gandhi was a sex maniac too. His father died while he was with his wife. Regarding Gandhi’s brahmacharya, who will go on diet, fat or skinny person? So who will practice brahmacharya?
(for sure not sadhu 🙂 lol)
well, Jawahar, Indira Gandhi, Sanjay all have behave badly.
You should know Rajeev and Sanjay were the half brothers too. and Indira had couple times abortions.
Ardhanariswara (Lord Siva) – half man, half woman- means a transgender God.
In Indian culture homosexuality is there, we know it…but we don’t talk openly..
that is all 🙂
To Answer your question…Indian audience will not like Rishi acting as a gay person. (period). They might refer him as a “hijra” (eunuch) too :

Like the say, our vision is limited to our eyesight or the kinda glasses that we wear 🙂 So, if we start looking at things from that angle, then everyone would be homosexual and that would be too bad, cause without heterosexuals, how would we generate new homosexuals? 😉 Anyways, I think this discussion has reached its usefulness for this forum, so I shall stop here. Thanks for ur participation 🙂
