Blog Day :

5130 Post No. : 17085

Today 4th August 2022 is the ninety-third birth anniversary (4 August 1929 – 13 October 1987) of Kishore Kumar.

For the music lovers and readers associated with this blog today is another great day and we remember Kishore Da today and pay our tributes to him today here on the blog.

Today I have been late in sending this post to our editors and I sincerely hope that they will get time to consider and post this one. For more than a month now there is a ‘special project’ going at my workplace and because of this I am getting very less time to participate in blog activities. Though I wish to write and send many posts and many songs keep going through my mind on daily basis, but I am unable to concentrate and put in my energy on writing. I hope things to get back to normal after this ‘two months’ project gets over.

Today’s post got delayed because I was unable to make my mind up while making the selection. There are so many Kishore Kumar songs yet to be posted on the blog.
Since today is his birth anniversary I first looked for a happy song, then a fun song, then a romantic song, only a solo song, inspirational song, motivational song etc etc.

There was one song lying since years and pending to be posted, but it was a duet song and I did not wish to post a duet on this occasion today. I even noted two other songs, but then decided to send other.

Finally, I selected a Pancham composition which is in a sombre mood. Nevertheless listening to Kishore Kumar’s voice in this soulful song will bring back many memories for the readers. Poetry in the song by Majrooh Saab is also very nice and philosophical. The music prelude, the guitar and the mouth organ in between used in this composition is also very nice to listen to.

The movie and its songs were not much popular during its time. Nevertheless the overall musical score for this movie by Pancham Da is very very nice.

So here I am presenting a song from the ‘1985’ movie ‘Sitamgar’.

‘Sitamgar-1985’ was directed by Raj N Sippy for Bikramjeet Films International, Bombay and produced by Bikram Singh Dehal.

It had Dharmendra, Parveen Babi, Rishi Kapoor, Poonam Dhillon, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Prem Chopra, Jagdish Raj Gurbachan, Ranvir Raj, Azad, Tilak Mehta, Raj Kaul, Shamsuddin, Nath Kamle, Ved Akash, Ashok Gaekwad, Master Alankar, and Baby Geeta. Narendra Nath, Sonia Shania, and Sudhir make special appearance in this movie.

Ved Aakash and Pankaj Kharbanda were the Chief Assistant Directors of this movie. Ashok Gaekwad was the Associate Director for this movie.

V.N. Mayekar was the editor while Sakharam Borse assisted him in editing. Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Mirza Brothers and dialogues were written by Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza.

This movie had six songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by R.D. Burman (Manohari, Babloo and Martin were assistants). Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is picturised on Dharmendra who is riding on a horse. It reminds us of many songs with similar picturisation.

Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

The audio version is having three stanzas while the video of this song is of only two stanzas.

Let us now listen to the great voice Kishore Kumar and take a journey down memory lane …

Song-Pyaar jab na diyaa zindagi ne kabhi (Sitamgar)(1985) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

pyaar jab naa diya aa
zindagi ne kabhi ee
phir sitamagar kaun huaa
aadmi ya zindagi
pyaar jab naa diya aa
zindagi ne kabhi ee
phir sitamagar kaun huaa
aadmi ya zindagi

jurm ki hai sazaa
ye to jaanen sabhi
jurm ki hai sazaa
ye to jaanen sabhi
koyi mujrim kyun banaa
ye nahin maanen kabhi
saath jab naa diyaa
zindagi ne kabhi ee
phir sitamagar kaun huaa
aadmi ya zindagi

daagh lagtaa rahe
phir bhi jeena pade ae
ho o daagh lagtaa rahe
phir bhi jeena pade ae
zillaton ruswaaiyon ka
zehar bhi peena pade
reham jab naa kiya
zindagi ne kabhi
phir sitamagar kaun huaa
aadmi ya zindagi

wo to kehta rahaa
zindagi ke liye
wo to kehta rahaa
zindagi ke liye
ek mohabbat ke siwaa
kuchh na mujhko chaahiye
pyaar jab naa diya
zindagi ne kabhi
phir sitamagar kaun huaa
aadmi ya zindagi
pyaar jab naa diya aa
zindagi ne kabhi ee
phir sitamagar kaun huaa
aadmi ya zindagi
aadmi ya zindagi
hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm
