Evergreen Bollywood Music

Post by Varun on Sat 2 Jul 2011 - 1:04

I don't know what to entitle this topic. I just went on YouTube and enjoyed some good old Bollywood music by Kishore Kumar and Mohammed Rafi and I felt like being in another world.

Should we go for "Kishore Kumar vs. Mohammed Rafi" with a poll or "Old is Gold - Bollywood Music"?

In the meantime, put everything else aside and enjoy... Smile


Kishore Kumar - O Mere Dil Ke Chain (OST - Mere Jeevan Saathi)


Mohammed Rafi - Badi Mastani Hain (OST - Jeena Ki Raah)

I think it should "Old is Gold - Bollywood"! cheers

Comparing between 2 great singers, Kishore and Rafi, would be as if humiliating their unique talents!

Hmm.. it seems like you are pretty well acquainted to the various oldies! How about sharing some more such wonderful pieces of the 2 legendary singers?

I would suggest "Old is Gold - Bollywood Music" because there were other singers which were as good as Kishore Kumar or Mohammad Rafi such as Lata Mangeshkar, Mukesh Chand Mathur (famously known as Mukesh), Manna Dey, etc...

On that note, enjoy one of my favourite songs of Mukesh.

Isn't "Evergreen Bollywood Music" a better one or do you still prefer "Old is Gold - Bollywood Music"?

Also, I'm not too sure this one goes down as an evergreen song but I reckon that this topic is a subjective one.

On another note, I would like to request you to put the artist name, the music title and the movie title as caption below the video.

Both titles actually suits these songs.
But I would prefer 'Evergreen Bollywood Music'.
Because at some point of life the present songs of bollywood will become old too. I personally like very few of these new songs. Hence I consider the songs above as evergreen. Smile

Thanks. Smile
About memories, well it reminds me days when my father used to sit on the sofa watching over me if am studying or not. He used to make me recite multiplications. At times he would listen to songs from the sofa and watching me.
I was only waiting when he would doze off and I would sneak into the kitchen or my room to get a break.
Each time I would be sitting for reciting, the song 'Kabhi Kabhi Mere Dil mein' was played on radio.

By the way, I really liked all the videos all you people have posted so far. I guess that's why the title suits well the topic: "Evergreen Bollywood Music"

Oh and I would love to share this classical song with you.

Neither "Dum Dum Deega Deega" nor "Chup Tum Raho, Chup Hum Rahein" appeal to my taste but I love Chitra's (K. S. Chithra, not to be confused with Chitra Singh) voice. There's one song which I really appreciate from that lady but I'm not too sure if that can go down as an evergreen song. Anyway, listen to it and tell me what you think.

Re: Evergreen Bollywood Music

Post by Varun on Tue 12 Jul 2011 - 23:41

Yeah, awesome indeed.

On that note, here's another awesome performance from my favourite singer, Kishore Kumar...


Kishore Kumar - Kabhi Palkon Pe Aansoo Hai (OST - Harjaee)
By the way, I also got the following piece of note along with that clip:

Kishore Kumar married four times. His first wife was Ruma Guha Thakurta aka Ruma Ghosh. Their marriage lasted from 1950 to 1958. Kishore Kumar's second wife was the famous actress Madhubala, who had worked with him on many films including his home production Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958). When Kishore Kumar proposed to her, Madhubala was sick and was planning to go to London for treatment. She didn't know about the condition that she was suffering from, and her father wanted her to wait and consult the London doctors first. Nevertheless, Madhubala married Kishore Kumar in 1960. Madhubala was a MUSLIM, and the two had a civil marriage,.

His family was against the marriage, and the couple also had a Hindu marriage to please them, but Madhubala was not accepted by them. The doctors in London told Madhubala that she would not live for long. The marriage lasted for 9 years, and ended with Madhubala's death on February 23, 1969. Kishore Kumar's third marriage was to Yogeeta Bali, and lasted from 1976 to August 4, 1978. Kishore Kumar was married to Leena Chandavarkar from 1980 until his death.

Kishore Kumar had two sons, Amit Kumar (playback singer) with Ruma, and Sumit Kumar with Leena Chandavarkar.

Kishore Kumar is said to have been paranoid about not being paid.During recordings, he would begin singing only after his secretary confirmed that the producer had made the payment.Once, when he discovered that his dues hadn't been fully paid, he landed up for shooting with make-up on only one side of his face. When the director questioned him, he replied "Aadha paisa to aadha make-up." (Half make-up for half payment). On the sets of Bhai Bhai, Kishore Kumar refused to act because the director M V Raman owed him five thousand rupees. His brother Ashok Kumar persuaded him to do the scene. But, when the shooting started, he walked across the floor and, each time he walked a few places, he said, "Paanch Hazzar Rupaiya," (five thousand rupees) and did a somersault. After he reached the end of the floor, he went out of the studio, jumped into his car, and ordered his driver Abdul to drive away.

On another occasion, when the producer R. C. Talwar did not pay his dues in spite of repeated reminders, Kishore Kumar turned up at Talwar's residence one morning and started shouting "Hey Talwar, de de mere aath hazaar" ("Hey Talwar, give me my eight thousand"). He did this every morning for a few days, until Talwar paid him.

The film Anand (1971) was originally supposed to star Kishore Kumar and Mehmood in the lead roles. One of the producers of the film, N.C. Sippy, had earlier served as Mehmood's production manager. Hrishikesh Mukherjee, the director of the film, was asked to meet Kishore Kumar to discuss the project. However, when he went to Kishore Kumar's house, he was driven away by the gatekeeper due to a misunderstanding. Kishore Kumar (himself a Bengali) had done a stage show organized by another Bengali man, and he was involved in a fight with this man over money matters. He had instructed his gatekeeper to drive away this "Bengali", if he ever visited the house. When Hrishikesh Mukherjee (another Bengali) went to Kishore Kumar's house, the gatekeeper drove him away, mistaking him for the "Bengali" that Kishore Kumar had asked him to drive away. Consequently, Mehmood had to leave the film as well, and new actors (Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan) were signed up for the film.

In spite of his "no money, no work" principle, sometimes Kishore Kumar recorded for free even when the producers were willing to pay. He recorded for free, for some films produced by Rajesh Khanna and Danny Denzongpa.On one occasion, Kishore Kumar helped actor-turned-producer Bipin Gupta, by giving him Rs. 20,000 for the film Dal Mein Kala (1964). When the little-known actor Arun Kumar Mukherjee died, Kishore Kumar regularly sent money to his family in Bhagalpur. Mukherjee was one of the first persons to appreciate Kishore's singing talent.

I was indifferent to a song until I heard it being sung by a professional musician performing karaoke in a wedding ceremony of one of my cousins'. Since then, I'm totally charmed by the song and I want to share it with you, guys.

In Rajesh Khanna style... Kyun re?

What amazes me in that clip isn't the video at all but the song. Just imagine how hard has it been for Kishore Kumar to have sung it. If the lyrics are read they seem quite difficult to make it melodious when singing but the singer has done it and he made it look so easy. In my opinion, had the background music been inexistant, the song would have been equally superb as it is in the clip.
