Last week, I suddenly felt an urge to write an article on Shashi Kapoor whom I admire for being a different Kapoor from his two illustrious brothers – Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor. He may not have the genius and business acumen of Raj Kapoor nor have the yahoo image of Shammi Kapoor. But he scored over his two illustrious brothers in that he was the most handsome among them. I remember a handsome and boyish looking Shashi Kapoor in ‘Waqt’ (1965). With his handsome and ever smiling face, he had a huge fan following during his hey days. He was different from his brothers on one more count – he married an English girl Jennifer Kendal who was associated with a theater group.

Ever since I heard the songs from film ‘Badi Maa'(1945) about four decades ago, I have been a fan of music director Datta Korgaonkar (known as K Datta). It is stated that when his songs from ‘Badi Maa’ were heard by some of his contemporary music directors, they were so impressed by his compositions ,especially ‘diya jalaaker aap bujhaaye’ that music directors like Shyam Sundar, Anil Biswas, Ghulam Haider and Rafiq Ghazanvi personally visited his house and congratulated him. During the last few days, I have been going through his songs on the internet and I found his compositions and orchestration of songs somewhat different from what was prevalent during his time. K Datta was active in the film industry between 1943-1956 during which time he composed music only for a dozen films but he churned out mostly good songs though they may not have become very popular among the masses. His last film as a music director was ‘Ajnabi’ (1966).

I often get confused between the two similarly named movies of 1960s, viz “Shikaar” and “Shikaari”. The confusion is compounded by the fact that both movies had similar storylines, where the hero would go to a jungle for “shikaar” where he would enounter tribals wearing Red Indian/ African kinds of heargears etc and the daughter of the chief would be the chief female dancer among the tribal dance troupe that would sing and dance at the drop of a spear.

I have heard this song many a times and liked this song too, but all this while I was totally unaware about the details of this song. Now that I have heard this song again, I recall that this song was one of the songs that Sunil Gavaskar had played during the Vishesh Jaimala programme on Vividh Bharati in 1975.
