Hullo Atuldom

This post sees the 20th November 1981 released “Gehra Zakhm” (as written in the titles of the movie) making its debut on the blog.
It is possible that the success of “Dada” (1979) prompted the casting of Amjad Khan in a pivotal role in this, since in that period he was known more for his negative characters. Vinod Mehra was the hero -just as in “Dada”. Ranjeeta Kaur, Kadar Khan, Sheetal, Jagdeep, Satyen kappu, Om Shivpuri etc formed the rest of the cast. Master Mayur played the young Vinod Mehra and Master Titoo played Amjad Khan’s childhood. Master Ravi plays the child who is rescued by Amjad Khan from Kadar Khan’s goonda and restored to his mother with some heavy duty dialogues to the effect that “maa se badhkar koi cheez nahi”. Jagdeep is Vinod Mehra’s (Vijay) friend who keeps urging the educated unemployed Vijay to live honestly and stop coming up with get-rich schemes.

Just before I started writing this post I had a look at the movie until the point of this song. It has Kishore Kumar and Sapan Chakraborty singing for Vijay and Jimmy (Jagdeep) as they go about on a cycle along the streets of Bombay by night. They are hoping that their fortunes change and they are able to enjoy the luxuries of life. Leena Das is the dancer in the last stanza.

This movie had two lyricists- Vithalbhai Patel and Nida Fazli- penning five songs that were set to tune by Rahul Dev Burman. Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Bhupinder, Anand Kumar (have seen his name against a few songs, but no info on him), Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar and Udit Narayan were the other singers in the movie.

I chanced upon this song when I googled for songs of Kishore Kumar which were not by regular lyricists meaning Anand Bakshi, Rajinder Krishan, Majrooh etc. Not that I don’t like their work, it is just that we feel that KK has not sung any other writer’s work. I also have been trying to present songs which KK has sung for actors other that Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh.

As we all know one of Vinod Mehra’s earliest songs “geet gata hoon main” had Kishore Kumar giving playback. That had the distinction of being composed by Shankar Jaikishan and written by Dev Kohli and stood at number 18 in that year’s Binaca Geetmala.

To start of with he was a reluctant actor. His debut was as playback for Dev Anand. He had a solo and his first ever duet with Lata Mangeshkar in that movie after which Lata – Kishore duets have been a norm for all leading pairs. And we have 206 of those duets on our blog. We have many duets of Kishore Kumar on the blog where he has sung with Mukesh, Mohd Rafi, R D Burman, S Balbir, Amit Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor and Shailendra Singh. Today we have a song with a new partner.

The first decade saw him singing one or two songs per movie; the maximum 7 songs he sang was for “Jaalsaaz” in 1959 and 8 songs for “Suhana Geet” also in 1959. But people say that his best period was post “Aradhana” in 1969 but we cannot close our eyes to “Jewel Thief”, “Guide”, “Half Ticket”, “Manmauji”, “Jhumroo”, “Rangoli” and all the other movies for which he has lent his voice.

Yes, post 1969 he has been used for actors as varied as Sunil Dutt, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, even Pran and his own brother Ashok Kumar. Kishore Kumar’s voice has been used successfully for all heroes of the ’70s through the ’80s till death snatched him away from us 33 years ago.

Remembering this excellent actor, singer, producer, director, music director and artist on his anniversary.

Peevesie’s Mom.
Just out of interest, some time back, I had made a list of Kishore Kumar’s songs as a playback singer for actors other than Dev Anand during pre-Aradhana (1969) years But the list remained incomplete. I got hold of that list from my old note pad which I am sharing here:

Bahar (1951) – Karan Diwan
Ek Nazar (1951) – Gope
Naujawaan (1951) – Premnath
Naujawaan (1951) – Krishna Kumar (Choreographer)
Aashiyaana (1952) – Randhir
Maa (1952) – Bharat Bhushan
Sindbaad the Sailor (1952) – Master Bhagwan
Aagosh (1953) – Agha
Parineeta (1953) – Gopikrishna
Angaarey (1954) – Jeevan
Bhoot Bangla (1965) – Mehmood
Abhilasha (1968) – Sanjay Khan
Farishta (1968) – Sudhir
Teen Bahuraniya (1968) – Rajendranath.

The list is not exhaustive as there are around 50 more films in which Kishore Kumar gave playback for other actors, But those songs are not available for watching. Since, in all these films, Kishore Kumar had not acted, it is apparent that he sang for other actors. For instance, in ‘Pyaar’ (1950), KIshore Kumar sang for Raj Kapoor. But it can not be verified as the film is not available. Since KK had 5 songs in the film, it can be safely presumed that he sang for RK.

Another interesting observation came out of this exercise that during 1957-64, KK did not sing for any other actors. not even for Dev Anand.

S D Burman had a large role in shaping KK’s singing career. He introduced him as a playback singer in ‘Ziddi’ (1948). He made KK to sing as a playback singer for Dev Anand and other actors for films in which SDB was MD. Many believe that it was SDB who gave KK his second innings as a playback singer making him to sing in ‘Aradhana’ (1969). While, SDB’s brillinat music compositions in the film made KK his second coming, the credit for this should also go to Shakti Samanta, the producer-director of ‘Aradhana’ (1969) as it was Shakti Samanta who suggested SDB to use KK for ‘mere sapanon ke rani kab aayewgi tu’ as Mohammed Rafi was on a Haj pilgrimage. And SDB had already decided to use Rafi for Rajesh Khanna as KK was not taking up any singing assignment following the death of Madhubala in Feb 1969. KK was pursuaded to come to SDB’s house. The song was rehearsed and recorded on the same day. SDB was so happy with his rendition of the song that later on, he decided to record two more songs in KK’s voice.

Sadanandji,
Thank you for the list of KK’s actors prior to 1969. Thank you very much.
Like Amit Kumar says in all his interviews, his Dad used to say WONDERFUL in a particular way. I also feel like saying “wonderful”
