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.

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.

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 05

‘I live in Australia,’ he said, which wasn’t really an answer. He turned away from her and looked out to sea, changed the subject along with the mood. ‘The sunsets are spectacular here,’ he said, because they were.

It was on this date (19 july) that the first article was posted on 19 july 2008 eight years ago and the blog thus got launched. We have been celebrating this day every year in the blog as the blog anniversary day ever since.

Does the name Sunil Sikanderlal Kapoor ring a bell in our minds? No? But if I say “Nandu, sabka Bandhu”, will that help us to identify the person I am talking of? I think the answer will be yes, by some of the regulars in the blog. Now one more famous line from this actor—“main crime master GO-GO, ankhen nikal ke goti kheloonga”. I can quote so many of his dialogues that I will stop here or the readers will say –“Samajhta nahin hai yaar” (she is boring us). Now I am sure that all of you would have come pretty close to identifying the actor who celebrated his 58th birthday yesterday (3rd September).

Today (11 february 2015) is the birth anniversary of Tina Munim , now Tina Ambani (DoB 11 february 1957). It appears as if it was only yesterday that she made her debut in “Des Pardes”(1978). But it turns out that 37 years have passed since !

A music director whose songs are loved by even today’s youngsters. Yes, it is the son of the Sachin Dev Burman and Meera Burman that we are missing today from among our midst.

Remembering RD Burman on the anniversary of his passing away (4th Jan).

Though I am not very good in remembering dates (especially important dates, you know which ones 🙂 ), I often get saved by someone or the other. I would almost forget the birthday of my wife but for the fact that we have a daughter who can never forget birthdays and who never fails to remind me of such dates.

The blog has seen two dry days in a row when no new posts were made. It is something unusual for the blog but it cannot be avoided. As it is, I was travelling all these days. In fact my travel is not over yet. I have to commence my return journey from today and it will be another couple of days before I arrive back at my base.

The song that I sent last time for posting was about calling the guy home for tea and meeting the girls’ parents. Now the song which I thought apt to follow the previous one is from the 1980- Subhash Ghai directed rebirth story “Karz”. Here in this song we have two 51 year olds Kishore da (god bless him for being an all round entertainer) and Lata didi (that’s what the entire film industry addresses her as) singing “that they are sixteen and seventeen” for a 28 year old Rishi Kapoor and 22 year old Tina Munim. What I find charming is the song in its entirety viz. the picturization, the lyrics, the music, the singing and the acting. I simply admire it.
