Hullo to all in Atuldom

July the 3rd is the date when the son of a favorite singer of mine, who is equally my favourite turns a year younger. It is the 67th birthday of Amit Kumar Ganguly. The all-rounder musician – he is a playback singer and music director in addition to being an actor and director.
He made his acting debut as an 11 or 12-year-old in “Door Gagan Ki Chaon Mein” (1964) and had his father singing for him “aa chal ke tujhe main leke chaloon ek aise gagan ke tale”. He played a mute kid whose eyes conveyed a lot of emotion. His eyes still convey a lot of emotion- we mostly see mischief there. 🙂 His next screen appearance was again with his father in a short role in “Door Ka Rahi” (1971). “Main ik panchchi matwala re” was a song that was recorded for the movie which was later edited out from the final cut of the movie and used inn a later Kishore Kumar production “Mamta Ki Chaon Mein”. Whatever acting he has done is mostly in movies produced by his father. He has acted in about six movies and took on the mantle of director to complete his fathers’ “Mamta ki Chaon Mein” which released in 1989; two years after his father, the legendary Kishore Kumar, passed away.

I have seen a video on youtube where Amit Kumar mentions how his proud father Kishore Kumar presented him on stage as part of a “Kishore Kumar Nite” in the 70s. He has related how the father-son duo had planned on his entry on to the stage and so many other anecdotes are there in that video.

I made some mental notes after seeing that video. Today’s song is selected from those notes- the first song that I discovered in that video has been shared on the blog by Sudhirji – a Madan Mohan marvel “hai shaam badi matwali” from the 1980 release “Chaalbaaz” which was one of the first few songs that he sang outside of his father’s production.

The very first time that he sang for someone other than his father was for the music director duo Sapan- Jagmohan. (I know that either our in-house encyclopedia or Sudhirji have written a brief introduction to this lesser known music director jodi). The movie was “Darwaza” by the Ramsay Brother’s production house.

The movie had a cast of Anju Mahendru, Shyamlee, Anil Dhawan, Imtiaz Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Sheetal, etc etc. The movie had Naqsh Lyallpuri as the lyricist. It movie had around three songs all of them solos -two by Asha Bhonsle and one was by Amit Kumar. “Darwaza” released in 1978, was reasonably popular. I remember we were not allowed to see the movie as it was given an “Adults Only” certificate by the censor board, it was supposed to be a horror movie. I have not yet seen it, 🙂

So here we are wishing our dear Amit Kumar a very happy birthday (belated) with a song which, though not as popular as his “bade achche lagte hain” or other songs of his under R D Burman’s baton, is very soothing to the ears.


Song-Hosh mein ham kahaan (Darwaaza)(1978) singer-Amit Kumar, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

hosh mein
hum kahaan
mil gaye ae
do dil jawaan
ye samaa
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na aa
hosh mein
hum kahaan
arre mil gaye
do dil jawaan
ye samaa
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na aa
hosh mein
hum kahaan
arre mil gaye
do dil jawaan

ho o o
ik aag si jaagi mere jazbaat mein
kaise ghata pyaasi rahe barsaat mein
o o
ik aag si jaagi mere jazbaat mein
kaise ghata pyaasi rahe barsaat mein
arre ye sama
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na
hosh mein hum kahaan
arre mil gaye do dil jawaan

ho o o
mehke labon ki taazgi de do mujhe
pal bhar mere dil ki khushi de do mujhe
o o o
mehke labon ki taazgi de do mujhe
pal bhar mere dil ki khushi de do mujhe
ye sama
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na
hosh mein hum kahaan
arre mil gaye do dil jawaan
ye sama
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na
hosh mein hum kahaan
arre mil gaye do dil jawaan
hosh mein
hmm hmm
arre mil gaye

Thanks for the post Peevesie’s Mom ji. Our belated birthday greetings to Amit Kumar.
Thanks for the song. And I was expecting this song to be posted (from you).
I could not sent my post though had planned for it earlier.
I also missed to comment on that ‘hai shaam badi matwaali’ post (though I have to comment on many posts which I have not been able to do so far) that the today’s song ‘hosh mein ham kahaan’ is in fact the first song sung by Amit Kumar outside his Father’s baton. (This is mentioned by him in one of his interview also).

Thanks again,
