Hullo to all Atulwaasis

So, we are on that date of the year when we write a special post for a very special person. We have two posts by kids of the 70s who grew up listening to the works of this special person. For once I waited to see what these two are going to say before I pen my own thoughts. This is because I have come to realise that the three of us love the same things about this person- his multi talents- singing (first and foremost), comedy (acting), direction, music direction and he has also written a few songs. We are his fans and he was said to be a huge fan of K.L. Saigal. His aim was to sing like Saigal.

Yes yes, I am talking about our very own Kishore Kumar. The one and only actor who could do comedy while romancing his heroine- saw him, again, in “Dilli Ka Thug” this morning and fell in love with his “Hum toh mohabbat karega” all over again. Even in “Haal kaisa hai janaab ka” his romance is steeped in comedy.

But his sober songs were a class apart- “koi humdum na raha, koi sahaara na rah”, “mere Mehboob qayamat hogi aaj ruswa teri galiyon main mohabbat hogi” to name only two.

He was not trained in music classically or any other form; but never sang a note out of tune. I have heard RD Burman say in some interview a long time back (has to be long time ago as he himself died in 1994) that when they were recording “Mere naina sawaan bhaadon phir bhi mera man pyaasa” RD was briefing Kishoreda about the nuances of the song and the raga it was based in. And Kishoreda is said to have replied “tu mujhe yeh sab mat baata, kya gaana hai bol main gaata hoon.” (don’t give me all these details, just tell me what I should sing).

But I know of a song where in Kishoreda has tutored Goddess Saraswati (that is what many consider Lata Mangeshkar to be) on the do-re-mi of Indian music- I mean there is a song where Kishoreda has given playback to Dev Anand (one can’t escape this combination no? ) who is the music tutor to Tina Munim for whom Lata Mangeshkar was the playback. But of course, in another song the vice versa has also happened- Kishoreda has been tutored by Lata.

When Kishoreda finally chose to do more of singing and less of acting was when he re-emerged as the voice of Rajesh Khanna. But his debut as a playback singer had already happened way back in 1948.

If one charts the life and times of Hindi film music from say 1944/45 to 1987 we see that all three of those whom we had special posts on in the last fifteen days- 2 birthdays (Mukesh and Kishoreda) and one death anniversary (Rafisaab) were active at this time (Kishoreda being the last to leave us). And we have a great song by the trio on our blog Hum ko tumse ho gaya hai pyaar ktya karen . (I don’t know if such a song was there in the period when the three were younger.)

Another fact which I just realised is all three had just stepped into their 50s when they passed on… eerie isn’t it?

But we will not talk of sad things when we speak of Kishoreda. He was a full of wit and charm and pranks kind of person.

I am not in the habit of talking of my personal experiences or sharing my thoughts of the time when I was a kid or adolescent or younger (to put it in one word). Why? Because I never used to listen to songs as a Rafi/ Kishore/ Manna/ Mukesh song. I always needed a song to be playing in the airwaves. It is no different even now. I was as much a fan of “Kya hua tera wada” as of “Rafta rafta dekho aankh meri ladi hai” or “main pal do pal ka shayar hoon” or “ae bhai zaara dekh ke chalo”. I suppose I used to connect the songs with the visual images that used to accompany them. But this post is not about me. It is about a singer whose work I have loved.

We all know Kishore Kumar was chosen to be voice of Rajesh Khanna, or that Kishoreda himself credited RK to be cause of his resurgence. This shows that he must have had a humble personality. As far as I can recollect he had been doing great work with Dev Anand, till then. And later too his work with a Dharmendra/ Sanjeev Kumar/ Shashi Kapoor/ Jeetendra/ Amitabh Bachchan/ Vinod Khanna & Mehra/ Rishi & Randhir Kapoor/ or all the other heroes including the ones who debuted in the 70s/80s was not below par.

Can one forget “ghungroo ki tarah”; “musafir hoon yaaron na ghar hai na thikaana”; “pal dil ke paas tum rehti ho”; “intehaan ho gayi intezaar ki”; “geet gaata hoon main gungunata hoon main” to name a few. All these melodies-Oh God! Thank you for giving us Kishore Kumar this date in 1929. Wish you a lot of fun time Kishoreda (as Rajaji has said in his post) with some of your loved ones who are up there with you.

Today I am at a loss as to which song should accompany this post. The statistics page of the blog says that we have 1030 songs of Kishoreda out of a possible 2709. 1679 songs are a few too many to choose from.

But I am choosing the easy way out and showcasing a song which I have mentioned in the post. We already have the song Gaa re mere sang mere saajna of the 70s where Lata tutors Kishore Kumar. Now we shall have the song from the 1980 Basu Chatterjee directed Dev Anand- Tina Munim- Girish Karnad starrer “Manpasand”. The movie was inspired by George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion. So that is the story of the movie in one sentence.

Amit Khanna and Rajesh Roshan were the lyricist and music composer respectively. This is a song which used to be by- heart for me ages ago. I simply love the way they dance through the song specially at the close of the song.

Thinking of you today Kishoreda, missing you too.

Less than a week ago, we were remembering the legend of legends amongst singers of the Hindi film industry, Mohammed Rafi, respectfully referred to by many as Rafisaab.

Today, we remember another legend of legends amongst singers – the one and only Kishore Kumar, fondly referred to by many as Kishoreda.

But while Rafisaab’s occasion was his death anniversary, today happens to be Kishoreda’s birth anniversary.

So wherever you are up there, Kishoreda, our fondest birthday wishes to you from the blog. Hope you are enjoying yourself – you have plenty of good company for your singing, what with SD Burman and RD Burman to compose songs written by Majrooh and Anand Bakshi, picturised on Dev Anand and Rajesh Khanna. Must be like old times up there.

Kishore Kumar.

Where do I start?

Most staunch Atulites here know that I am a big fan of Rafisaab. Of course I am.

But I am also a big fan of Kishoreda.

Yes, it’s possible to be a big fan of both of them. Might seem increasingly improbable in an increasingly polarized world, but thankfully in the world of music at least, we still have many (including myself) who are big fans of both Rafisaab and Kishoreda. And in fact other singers.

That’s the power of music. It is truly inclusive, embracing everyone from anywhere in the world. Which is why it is the biggest uniting factor around.

Coming to Kishoreda, I’ve written many posts here on him over the years. And yet, I’m happy to write more about him. I’m sorry if it’s repetitive for the readers, but this is a tribute post, so it’s about what Kishoreda feels. And I think he wouldn’t mind. 🙂

For me, and anyone growing up in the 70s with even the remotest interest in Hindi film music, it would be impossible to deny Kishoreda’s influence during those years. Atul is part of the same generation – he will vouch for Kishoreda’s domination in that era.

Like I’ve said before, Kishoreda was everywhere. Just everywhere. You couldn’t listen to a “current” radio programme without hearing his voice. From my early years, when songs of Aradhana would be playing non-stop, to the end of the 70s/early 80s, when Kishore was still the reigning voice, now singing songs like “jahaan teri ye nazar hai” and “pag ghunghroo”.

Many actors came and went during this period. Rajesh Khanna gave way to Amitabh Bachchan as the reigning superstar. The industry lost a number of its luminaries – Prithviraj Kapoor, Balraj Sahni, Meena Kumari, SD Burman, Madan Mohan, Rafisaab and Sahir, to name some of them.

Politically too, a lot changed. Bangladesh got independence. The OPEC crisis meant oil prices skyrocketed in 1973. India conducted a successful nuclear test in Pokhran in 1974. For the first time ever, an Emergency was declared in India in 1975. For the first time since independence, the Congress Party lost a general election in 1977. In 1978, after a hiatus of 17 years, India and Pakistan resumed cricketing ties.

All significant events. Ok maybe not the last one, but for a cricket-crazy guy like me, it was significant. 🙂

Through all this, the one constant was Kishore Kumar.

He started the decade as the superstar male voice. And ended it as the superstar male voice. And not just that, retained this status right till the very end.

Of course, it would not present a full picture if we refer to Kishoreda only within the context of the 70s and 80s. He started in the 1940s itself – and had achieved a lot before he became Rajesh Khanna’s voice in Aradhana.

I’ve heard many say that they prefer Kishoreda’s voice of the 50s/60s to his later voice.

I can understand. Though I like his songs of the 70s/80s too, I’m especially fond of his earlier songs. There’s something special about them, whether they are fun songs or sad songs.

Just listen to “eena meena deeka”, “nakhrewaali aa”, “kuen mein kood ke mar jaana”, “paanch rupaiya barah aana” or “aake seedhi lagi”, to give just a few examples. Aren’t they absolutely, delightfully, whacky?

Or listen to one of my favourite Kishore duets “piya piya piya”. I can listen to it any number of times, it is just so much fun.

Or “hawaon pe likh do, hawaon ke naam” or “aa chal ke tujhe” or “main hoon jhumroo”.

Even if you look at the soulful songs of the pre-Rajesh Khanna era, you come across gems like
“ajnabi, tum jaane pehchaane se lagte ho” , “koi hamdam na raha”, “dukhi man mere”, “mere mehboob qayamat hogi’ or “panthi hoon main”….

So, while Aradhana might have been the film which made Kishore Kumar the number one male singer in the industry, he had sung plenty of wonderful songs before that too – just that he hadn’t focussed on singing as much as he did later.

And that’s because of his acting career. Till the late 60s, Kishoreda was very much into acting too. Although it wasn’t his first love (he even tried to get thrown out early on), his whacky comedy had its fair share of takers. Who can forget Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi and Half-Ticket? So he was busy with both acting and singing, with reasonable success on both fronts. Later he cut down on his acting to focus on his singing.

Kishoreda was a true allrounder. He was not only singer and actor, he also directed and produced films. And also composed music for his films.

Two of the films Kishore Kumar made – Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein (1964) and Door Ka Raahi (1971) – are two films I consider grossly underrated. They are “hatke” films, especially the latter. In a time of glamour and colour, where hero-heroine used to chase each other around trees, Door Ka Raahi (1971) discusses a traveller’s experiences in life. Meeting people, and separating from them. I just loved it, though it might not appeal to everyone.

That was about Kishore, the artiste.

A couple of lines about Kishore, the person.

Just like the most common thing you hear about Rafisaab as a person is “wo to khuda ke aadmi the” (man of God), what you hear about Kishoreda most often is “bahut dildaar the, hamesha koi na koi mazaak karte the”. Yes, Kishoreda was reputed to be a prankster, and a fun person to be around. You can even notice that in the videos of his live shows. I always feel, anytime he’s going to burst out with “baam cheeki cheeki chaam cheeki cheeki”. 🙂

Later in life, Kishoreda apparently became more reclusive – and apparently used to talk to trees and plants in his garden, as reported in an interview with Pritish Nandy, the famous journalist of the 80s.

Anyway, Kishoreda was one of a kind – he played by his own rules. And we love him all the more for that.

Now moving on to the song for today.

It’s from Qaid (1975), a film I happened to see recently. It’s quite a nice film – with fast action and some suspense. Vinod Khanna and Leena Chandavarkar are good fun – so if you haven’t watched it, it’s worth a one-time watch, I think. (Warning: I’ve been known not to have the greatest of taste).

The story is about Preet (Leena) being forced on the streets after an impersonator takes over her place at home and everyone believes the imposter. Preet’s life is now in danger as the villains are out to kill her. Jai (Vinod), a lawyer who happens to be her neighbour, is one of the few who believes her story, and offers to help her.

This song “ye to zindagi hai” is when they are on the run from the villains. Leena narrowly manages to escape getting killed. Some fishermen in a truck help them to escape and take them to their fishing village. Leena is very much shaken – Vinod tries to boost her spirits with this song.

It’s a pleasant song, written by Maya Govind and composed by Nitin Mangesh. This is a two-man team of composers, Nitin and Mangesh. They’ve not composed for many films, and are not well-known but I felt that at times their music reminded me of RD Burman.

I hope you like the song.

Once again, happy birthday, Kishoreda. And thanks for all the wonderful music you’ve left behind for us to enjoy.

Today(4 august 2017) we remember ‘The Versatile Genius – Kishore Kumar’ on his birth anniversary (04th August 1929 – 13th October 1987). Had he been alive today he would have been celebrating his eighty-eighth birth anniversary.

Kishore Kumar was born at Khandwa (Madhya Pradesh) and our regular readers’ would recall that I had mentioned about my visits to Khandwa during August’2015 to August’2016 in a few of my posts. During this period I visited Khandwa more than a dozen times.

Incidentally it has been almost a year now that I last visited Khandwa in August’2016 about which I mentioned in my post here.

Many thoughts and emotions went through my mind whenever I visited Khandwa and particularly when I visited the ‘Gauri Kunj’ (the place of the ‘Gangulys’) and the ‘Kishore Kumar memorial (‘Samadhi sthal’) on the Khandwa-Indore Road at Khandwa.

We all know how Kishore Kumar loved this place and was eager to return to Khandwa and spend his life there. It was a wish which remain un-fulfilled. After his death his dead body was brought and kept in the same house/room where he was born prior to his last rites. That was also what he had wished for.

Nowadays this place ‘Gauri Kunj’ is in very bad shape and dilapidated condition. As per some very recent news from Khandwa the government is going to dismantle and remove a part of this building, whereas the popular sentiment that the government should take over and build a museum in his memory there is not being taken care of (may be because of some ‘technical snag’ 🙂 )

In our country we are all familiar with this type of ‘apathy’ from the government as well as the general public too as there is no strong initiative taken to preserve and value our ‘art, culture and traditions, and places that have importance.

But, well, that is a subject matter of another post and we will come back to the today’s post and to the main purpose of the blog i.e. the song for this post.

As we are aware that we still have a long way to go in the journey of Kishore Kumar songs on the blog and when one looks for his songs to be covered on the blog there are many options.

So, when I was looking for some of his songs for sharing I was looking for particular combinations and I came across many songs and many combinations.

And so finally I find myself flooded with choices and could not decide which song I should select and share.

There are many songs that were in my vague memories even though they were frequently heard on radio and loud speakers in those years when I was just a child. And was surprise to note that some of them are still remaining to be posted on the blog.

As the search for the song went on, and as I would select a song, another would crop up, again from the lesser heard and almost forgotten category of songs coming my way.

Then there were few which I had in my mind since long, but could not share till now.

Finally, I am sharing herewith this song from the 1960’s Un-released movie ‘Maa’.

One song, a gem of songs, has already been shared by our respected Kamath Sir on 13.05.15 here

No information is about this movie in HFGK (Vol III). I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this film and its songs.

This song has been composed by Chitragupt. Lyricist for this song is Majrooh Sultanpuri as mentioned on the YT link.

Thanking the YT up loader for this wonderful share let us now enjoy this song and remember Kishore Kumar the one and only one of his kind …

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Let us have a fun song from the 1981, Shomu Mukherjee produced & directed “Fiffty Fiffty” (and this is how fifty is spelt in the title card) which was certified on 15/10/1981 and released on 13/11/1981. It starred Rajesh Khanna and Tina Munim with Om Shivpuri (Bihari), Purnima (Mrs. Thakur), Amarnath (Thakur Vijendra Singh who is killed by Mr. Bihari before the titles), IndraniMukerjee (Mrs. Bihari who becomes dumb due to Mr. Bihari), Jairaj, Anita Guha, Nazir Hussain, Johny Whisky, CS Dubey, Jankidas, Jagdeep, Mushtaq Merchant, Kader Khan and Ranjeet. Dialogues were by Kader Khan. Anand Bakshi wrote the songs and Laxmikant-Pyarelal were the music directors.

Today, the 18th of July 2017, is the 5th remembrance day of one of India’s most enigmatic and exasperating film stars. You don’t need to rack your brains too much to guess who I am talking about. It should be pretty obvious – is there anyone more loved, and at the same time, more derided than Rajesh Khanna, ever in the industry? A time was when he was worshipped by hundreds of thousands, and then a time came when the weight of the crown of being the self-styled superstar, became an annoying, nay, a highly dislike-able phenomenon.

Have you ever wondered. . .

how a song gets constructed?

and why a song is termed as a tip of the iceberg?

You must now be thinking – this is a peculiar but a very interesting intro to the 134th century post on the blog. So yes, before getting into the discussion on the proposed topic, congratulations are in order. Welcome all to the 13 thousand 4 hundredth post on our blog. The musical bandwagon rolls on – toiling, pleasing, emotionally invigorating – it continues to move tirelessly. Because. . . because music – must be there. The world, this nature – all are moving to a rhythm, and a melody. Music is instilled in everything every entity we know, we touch, we think of. But come to think of it, we do not often think of this world that way i.e. music in everything, everyday of our lives. We are so consumed with the process of existence and living day to day, that we forget to stop and smell the flowers (or smell the coffee, if you are in America). And the music of life gets hidden behind the other sundries. Often we forget to think about it.
