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.
