Remembering Kishore Kumar on his 91st Birth Anniversary :

teri gali main aata sanam
naghma wafa ka gaata sanam
tujhse suna na jaata sanam
phir aa jidhar aaya hoon magar
ye kehne main deewaana
khatm bas aaj ye wehshat hogi
aaj rusva teri galiyon mein muhabbat hogi
mere mehboob

Abhas Kumar Ganguly (born 4 August 1929 – 13 October 1987), became the famed Kishore Kumar of Hindi film world. Being a Bengali but born and brought up in hindi heartland and settling down to work in Bombay film industry to follow the footsteps of big brother, must have helped form a cosmopolitan outlook in his attitudes. I have just read the Wikipedia page on Kishore Kumar and found it enlightening in many ways. Some of the eccentric behavior described in the page, are funny and not so funny at the same time.

Reading the detailed page has confirmed many of my conceptions about Kishore Kumar. Chief among them being the fact that S. D. Burman, had a great role to play in shaping him as a super playback singer. For a long time through 50’s and 60’s it is apparent that he only ever gave playback for Dev Anand. He was making films, acting as hero and character roles, singing for himself, composing songs for his own films etc. etc. 50’s and 60’s were the most productive decades for Dev Anand, but he was singing songs on screen with the total range of singers, Rafi, Kishore, Hemant Kumar, Talat Mehmood and even Mukesh. If Manna De also sang for Dev Anand during this time, I don’t know off hand. Even in Navketan films, the songs were divided among Rafi and Kishore, a few were by Hemant Kumar too early on. So it is understandable that 70’s and early 80’s is Kishore Kumar’s most productive period, after he was convinced by RDB to seriously concentrate on playback singing. Even than he was reportedly choosy about the actors for whom he sang.

Kishore Kumar also has a distinction of being the singing star and having enjoyed playback by Rafi Sahab. Only other singer to have this distinction is G. M. Durrani.

Some of the sad melancholy songs of Kishore Kumar are my favourite sad songs which I have listed in another post. The above quoted song “mere Mehboobqayamathogi” is one such song, the lyrics of which were written in a book of songs I used to keep in my childhood.

I had short listed the solo from “Sanam Teri Qasam” – Sheeshe ke gharon mein dekho to patthar dil wale baste hain”, but I found that song a bit depressing. So I shifted to another happy sounding song.

I am presenting this peppy, feel good song from the film “Bezubaan”(1982). It’s a party song, where Shashi Kapoor is singing in praise of his wife Reena Roy and counting his blessings. It is a solo song by Kishore Kumar, witten by Ravindra Rawal and composers are Raam-Laxman. The entire cast of the film is present in this gathering. The party is moving from indoors to outdoors and indoors again while Shashi Kapoor is so shaky and imbalanced with happiness keeps falling down and dropping things 🙂 🙂 . The details of the film are available on imdb site. The songs were quite good in this film especially the song “harek jeewan hai ek kahaani par ye sachchayi sab ne na jaani”, story- telling solo by Lata Mangeshkar.

Song-Tere jaisa koi khoobsoorat nahin (Bezubaan)(1982) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Ravindra Rawal, MD-Raam-Laxman

Lyrics(As per audio)

Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin
Ye mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Sooraj chaand taare gagan ke
Jaise raushni dene chamke
Yoon hi teri bindiya ke dam se
Meri duniya din raat damke
Sooraj chaand taare gagan ke
Jaise roshni dene chamke
Yunhi teri bindiya ke dam se
Meri duniya din raat damke
Tere hansne se achcha mahurat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Main bhi aaj yeh maanta hoon
Kal tak jo yeh duniyaa thhi kehti
Jag mein har safal aadmi ke
Peechhe ek aurat hai rehti
Main bhi aaj yeh maanta hoon
Kal tak jo yeh duniyaa thhi kehti
Jag mein har safal aadmi ke
Peechhe ek aurat hai rehti
Munh chhupaane ki koyi zaroorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Kitna mujhe tujhpe yaqeen hai
Hamdam tujhe kehna hai mushkil
Itna tujhe kehta hoon bas main
Tujh bin zinda rehna hai mushkil
Kitna mujhe tujh pe yaqeen hai
Hamdam tujhe kehna hai mushkil
Itna tujhe kehta hoon bas main
Tujh bin zinda rehna hai mushkil
Nainon mein bin tere koyi moorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin
Ye mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Hullo Atuldom

31st July, was that date in the monsoon of 1980, when the favourite singer of an entire generation left this world without any warning. There are anecdotes about the happenings of that date which keep surfacing now and then. We have heard that he was recording for Laxmikant -Pyarelal that day, a duet with Lata Mangeshkar, and was asked to stay back to record a songlet (if there is such a word) which was to play at the end of the movie and the words of that:

Tere aane ki aas hai dost
shaam phir kyun udhaas hai dost
mehki mehki phiza yeh kehti hain
tu kahin aas paas hai dost
tu kahin aas paas hain dost

seem like written for remembering this legend called Mohammad Rafi.

There is not a single day when a song played over the air-waves or on TV don’t remind us of his wonderful voice. There is not a single day when we don’t hum or sing a song that was a classic because he had sung it. There may be many who try to sing like him but God made only one Mohammad Rafi. Has anyone tried singing “kya hua tera waada, woh kasam woh iraada” in one breath, it is not easy. But when we hear Rafisaab render it, it feels like cakewalk. I will not even throw a challenge to sing “naache mann mora magan dhikna dhik dhik”. But I will definitely ask a Rafi clone to sing “yahoo, chahe koi mujhe junglee kahe” and follow it up with “champi tel maalish”. Both are fun songs abut they need a full-throated voice and range from lower to higher notes. I am not even going to list his soulful songs here; that would be really long and every single one as much on my personal playlist as the ones that I have mentioned here.

I would love to know how he modulated his voice to suit the on-screen actor. He was good for a Mehmood and Rajendra Kumar and sounded different in the same film. He sang for Guru Dutt and Johnny Walker and we could visualize the difference in the characters. No more examples as I have always said, I am not qualified or knowledgeable enough to comment or write about legends.

But I will definitely quote an Amitabh Bachchan song which said:

na phankaar tujh sa tere baad aaya, Mohammad Rafi tu bahut yaad aaya

Getting directly to today’s song. As

rasm e duniyaa bhi hai
maukaa bhi hai
dastoor bhi hai

I will just give the details of the song which is from the 1981 release “Ham Se Badhkar Kaun”. We have thus far, only one song from this movie which is this one. That means we haven’t visited this movie in the last nine years. Atulji has given the gist of this movie in that post in a single line- ‘run of the mill’. I will just add that it also relied on the lost-and-found theme. Today’s duet is Asha Bhonsle with Mohd.Rafi (duet number 533) performed on-screen by Mithun, Ranjeeta, Bhagwan Dada and chorus.

Song-Dekho logon ye kaisa zamaana (Ham Se Badhkar Kaun)(1981) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Ravindra Rawal, MD-Ram Laxman
Chorus

Lyrics

Oh Tony,
Please leave me alone
I hate you

Oh no dear Tina
I love you

dekho logon
yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaake bane woh begaana aa
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaake bane woh begaana
koi roothhe dilbar ko manaana
usse jaakar samhjaana

okay
goriye
aisa chaahne waala toh
milta kismat waalon ko

shut up
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaake bane woh begaana
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaake bane wog begaana

iss ki kya sunte ho
yeh deewaana hai

aisa kya
bhanwara hai yeh mat samjho
parwaana hai

haye tauba
iss ki suno na yaaron
ye jhooth hai saraasar
is bewafa ko dekho
pehchhaan lo baraabar

main sachh kehta hoon kasam khaa kar
goriye aashiq ko apne sataao na
ab toh maan jaao na

dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
aise jhoothon se daaman bachaana aa
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
aise jhoothon se daaman bachaana
inki har baat bahaana
dhokhe mein na aa jaana

arre yeh
lagta bhola bhala hai
lekin dil ka kaala hai

oh no
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaa ke bane woh begaana
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamana
dil churaake bane wo begaana

meri bala se chaahe na maano ae jaanaa
arre ja ja ja a
yeh dil toh hai aur kisi ka deewaana
kya kya kya
jaane tamanna meri
sun lo tumse behtar hai
dil pyaar ka khazaana
maasoomiyat zewar hai
yeh ab sab kya chakkar hai
arre woh hamse badhkar kaun hai
dekhoon ik jhalak toh main

dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaake chala woh deewaana
haa aa dekho logon yeh kaisa zamana
dil churaake chala woh deewaana
koi roothhe dilbar ko manaana
usse jaakar samhjaana

yaaron inka puraana taanka hai
khaayaa humne jhaansa hai

26th October is an important date for our blog. It has 2 birthdays. One is our very own Rajababu another is the female actor of the 90s Raveena Tandon. For me it is important as on this day my lil sister was born all those years ago. (I still feel of my sisters as little sisters even though the eldest child of my younger sis is in her first year of college this year, and the twins of my other sister are in class 4).

Today 21st October is the birthday of the dancing diva HELEN. And it is not possible to let it pass by without a song to show our love for her.

But that is the most difficult task for us atulites. Why? Because we have covered so many of her famous songs that one has to sit down with pen and paper to make a list of those songs that are left. In that respect I envy the various radio channels and TV programmes which will show the same set of songs on every occasion. I suspect that they don’t know the existence of the lesser known songs.

“Ham Se Badhkar Kaun” (1981) was a run of the mill kind of a movie that are produced every year and which are then soon forgotten after a few weeks.

As far as I was concerned, I actually forgot all about this movie soon after I watched it.
