Today (13 october 2016) is the death anniversary of Kishore Kumar, one of the legends of Hindi cinema and easily one of its most versatile artistes.

This day, in 1987, Kishore Kumar left us.

I’ve written several posts here on Kishore Kumar – usually coinciding with his birth or death anniversaries. In these, I’ve often discussed in detail, my own personal experiences of growing up in the 70s – an era when Kishore was the undisputed male voice of Hindi music. He had been singing since the late 40s itself, but it was not until Aradhana in 1969 that the music scene completely changed dramatically, and Kishore became the most-sought after male voice in the industry.

His emergence as the numero uno voice in the industry therefore coincided with my childhood years.
I remember growing up with Kishore songs all around me. Rajesh Khanna was then the superstar male actor. And Kishore’s songs for him used to play every single day, in every single music programme.

Kishore’s domination was so complete, that, especially as a young boy, you remembered other singer’s songs of the era as being “not-Kishore”. Otherwise there was just Kishore everywhere.
I’d like to know how many 1970s films didn’t have a Kishore song at all. Ravindra Jain-composed films come to mind – he tended to use Yesudas or even Jaspal Singh. And Laxmikant Pyarelal did persist with Rafisaab in their films, though Kishore too invariably was a part of their team.

But these would be a very small proportion of songs of that decade. The overwhelming majority of films had at least one Kishore song.

It was only later that I got to listen to many Kishore songs of earlier decades – and enjoy them. Until then, Kishore had firmly been a 1970s singer for me. I’ve often felt his pre-70s songs deserved to get more credit, but probably got overshadowed because of audience tastes and the sheer domination of Rafisaab. His pre-70s songs for Dev Anand (and Kishore, himself) are very enjoyable.

I’ve mentioned about Kishore’s versatility. He was, of course, primarily a singer, he acted in a number of films especially in the first half of his career – but he was also a director, producer, composer, lyricist, scriptwriter . And was successful in these roles too. How many can claim to even be able to fit into these roles, let alone be successful in them?

I’ve often said that the films produced & directed by Kishore are amongst my favourites. If only because they are philosophical and off-beat, so different from the usual masala films of the time. That Kishore, known for his comedy, off and on-screen, could produce movies of this type, is a compliment to his versatility and multi-faceted personality.

Kishore was often said to be eccentric – but that didn’t affect his performances or work in any way. If anything, that might even have helped. 🙂 Sometimes you need a crazy disposition to bring out the spark in you.

Today as I was thinking of a song to post for his death anniversary, I was spoilt for choice. There are still plenty of Kishore songs not yet posted here. Even well-known ones. Recently Avinashji mentioned a few to me – I was really surprised because I thought I had myself written a post for some of them. But they are still out there, waiting to be on the blog.

I must say, that though it is 29 years now since Kishore left us (how time flies!), I can’t help feeling everytime his death anniversary comes along, that he left us too soon. I have the same feeling with Rafisaab too. Both of them were only in their 50s!

From a career perspective, both of them were far from finished. Rafisaab had made a grand revival in his career and was going quite strong when he passed away suddenly in 1980.

Kishore was still the reigning numero uno male voice in the industry in 1987 when he passed away. His voice, right till the end, was just as captivating as it had been in earlier years. It is as if he hadn’t aged at all.

It is with this in mind, that I have deliberately chosen a song today from Kaash (1987). Kaash was a sensitive film made by Mahesh Bhatt, centred around relationships. Very unlike most Hindi films of the time which were based on violence or revenge.

Since Kishore died in the same year, this was probably sung not too long before his death.

The song was quite popular in its time – and for very good reason. The sensitivity in Kishore’s voice, a hallmark of many of his soft songs of the 70s, comes through brilliantly. It is as if he is back in “o hansini” times.

I listened to this song after a very long time only now, just to write down the lyrics for this post. And I kept listening to it, just for Kishore’s voice.

And I kept thinking “Kaash”.

Kaash (if only), he hadn’t left us so soon. He’d definitely have given us some more wonderful songs. He left us way too early. Ye dil maange more.

Kishore da, thank you for everything. We were lucky to have you in our midst. The legacy you have left us will always be treasured.

Dildaara
Main to ye kahoonga aa
Paaya jag saara aa aa
O yaara
A ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
