FLAMBOYANT KISHORE KUMAR

How can one ever describe Kishore Kumar? Interestingly one can try to, but we must remember that he has not only been immortalized by his songs, but also by his talents as an Actor, Producer, Director, Script-Writer, & Lyricist. His movies continue to be popular even now on TV, as do his songs on both TV and radio.

We know that he was a prolific singer, and he also sang in many other languages viz: Bengali, Hindi, Marathi, Assamese, Gujarati, Kannada, Bhojpuri, Malayalam and Oriya.

In showcasing Kishore Kumar, we will be featuring his songs in Hindi from the many Bollywood Movies, but before doing so, we shall be presenting a mini biography in this great son of the soil.

FLAMBOYANT KISHORE KUMAR

Kishore Kumar was born into a Hindu Brahmin family in Khandwa, Central Provinces and Berar (now in Madhya Pradesh). His birth name was Abhas Kumar Ganguly. His father Kunjalal Ganguly (Gangopadhya) was a lawyer. His mother Gouri Devi came from a wealthy family. Kishore Kumar was the second youngest of four siblings, the other three being Ashok Kumar (the eldest), Sati Devi, and Anoop Kumar.

While Kishore Kumar was still a child, Ashok Kumar became a popular Bollywood actor. (Later, Anoop Kumar also ventured into cinema with the help of Ashok Kumar). Spending time with his brothers, Kishore Kumar also started to take a keen interest in movies and music. He became a fan of singer-actor Kundan Lal Saigal, whom he considered his guru, and he tried to follow Saigal's singing style.

Roop tera mastaana pyaar mera diwaana
Your beauty intoxicates and my love is crazy.
Bhool koi hamse naa ho jaaye
We should not make any mistake

(Raat nashili mast samaan hai
The night dazzles me, the weather makes me dizzy
Aaj nashe mein saaraa jahaan hai)2
Today the whole world is drunk on love.
Aaye sharaabi mausam bahakaaye
This drunken season makes our minds wander.

Roop tera mastaana pyaar mera diwaana
Your beauty intoxicates and my love is crazy.
Bhool koi hamse naa ho jaaye
We should not make any mistake

(Aankhon se aankhein milti hain jaise
Our eyes meet
Bechain hoke tuufaan mein jaise)2
Restlessly, as though in a storm
Mauj koi saahil se takaraaye
The waves crashes against the shore

Roop tera mastaana pyaar mera diwaana
Your beauty intoxicates and my love is crazy
Bhool koi hamse naa ho jaaye
We should not make any mistake

(Rok rahaa hai hamko zamaana
The world is stopping us;
Door hi rahana paas na aana)2
Keep your distance, don't come near
Kaise magar koi dil ko samjhaaye
But how can I make my heart understand?

Roop tera mastaana pyaar mera diwaana
Your beauty intoxicates and my love is crazy.
Bhool koi hamse naa ho jaaye
We should not make any mistake

FLAMBOYANT KISHORE KUMAR

After Ashok Kumar became a Bollywood star, the Ganguly family used to visit Mumbai regularly. Abhas Kumar changed his name to Kishore Kumar and started his cinema career as a chorus singer at Bombay Talkies, where his brother worked. His first film as an actor was Shikari (1946), in which Ashok Kumar played the lead role. Music director Khemchand Prakash gave him a chance to sing the song Marne ki duayen kyon mangu for the film Ziddi (1948). After this, Kishore Kumar got many other assignments, but he was not very serious about a film career. In 1949, he decided to settle in Mumbai.

Kishore Kumar played hero in the Bombay Talkies film Andolan (1951), directed by Phani Majumdar. Although Kishore Kumar got some assignments as an actor with help of his brother, he was more interested in becoming a successful singer. He was not interested in acting, but his elder brother Ashok Kumar wanted him to be an actor like himself.

This film propel KK to heights far beyond he could have imagined, the film was a run away hit, and fans of Kishore Kumar grew immensley......our next song came also from Aradhana.

"Mere sapno ki rani" That song was composed by Sachin Dev Burman and performed Kishore Kumar. In the film, Rajesh Khanna, the male protagonist sings the song atop an open jeep virtually chasing the heroine Sharmila Tagore who was aboard the toy train in Darjeeling (Darjeeling Himalayan Railway). R. D. Burman composed the song after his father, S.D. Burman, became too ill to finish the film's music. The song became a superhit in India

He starred in Bimal Roy's Naukri (1954) and Hrishikesh Mukherjee's directorial debut Musafir (1957). Salil Chowdhury, the music director for Naukri was initially dismissive of him as a singer, when he came to know that Kishore Kumar didn't have any formal training in music. However, after hearing his voice, he gave him the song Chhota sa ghar hoga, which was supposed to be sung by Hemant Kumar.

Asj, what was the name of Rajesh friend in that jeep as he was singing the song. I think in some roles he played the bad guy.
yuh right bai, I just googled and it was him

Sujit Kumar (died 5 February 2010, Mumbai) was is a popular Indian Bhojpuri and Hindi film star. Hardcore Hindi film fans of 1960 might still remember him as the smart hero of low budget suspense flicks like Lal Bangla and Ek Saal Pehle, but perhaps Sujit Kumar indelible screen image remains of the guy playing the mouth organ while driving a jeep as Rajesh Khanna serenaded Sharmila Tagore in the1969 superhit Aradhana.Hewas a regular in many films starring Rajesh Khanna(Haathi Mere Saathi,Amar Prem,Mehbooba and Roti),Amitabh Bachchan(the Great Gambler,Adalat)and Dharmendra (Jugnu, Dharamveer, Charas, Dream Girl) playing roles that ranged from the comic to the villainish,and sometimes, both.
FLAMBOYANT KISHORE KUMAR

KISHORE RISE TO FAME:

After facing difficulties in the initial stage of his acting career, Kishore Kumar achieved success as a comic hero with movies like New Delhi (1957), Aasha (1957), Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958), Half Ticket (1962), and Padosan (1968). Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi, his home production, starred the three Ganguly brothers, and Madhubala. The film is about romance between a city girl (Madhubala) and a car mechanic (Kishore Kumar), with a subplot involving eccentric brothers.

Music director S. D. Burman is credited with spotting Kishore Kumar's talent as a singer, and advancing his singing career. During the making of Mashaal (1950), Burman visited Ashok Kumar's house, where he heard Kishore imitating K. L. Saigal. He complimented Kishore, but also told him that he should develop a style of his own, instead of copying Saigal. Kishore Kumar did not have a formal training in music. He kept Burman's advice in mind, and eventually developed his own style of singing, which featured the yodeling that he had heard on some records of Jimmie Rodgers bought by his brother Anoop Kumar.[citation needed] .

Kishore Kumar yodeled in songs such as Main Hoon Jhumroo and Thandi Hawa Yeh Chandni from Jhumroo, Nakhrewali from New Delhi, Tum Bin Jaoon Kahan from Pyar Ka Mausam, and Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhana from Andaz (1971), Thodi Si Jo Pi Lee Hai from Namak Halal (1982) are excellent examples of yodeling.

FLAMBOYANT KISHORE KUMAR

"Sitting on the wall of the studio, I saw a man wearing a muffler and a cap and holding a black stick. He was imitating everyone who passed [by], just like a monkey. When we went into the studio, the man jumped off the wall and came into the recording room. `Jo jo gane gatey the, unke satyanash karte huey, woh khud gana gane lage.' When I asked him why he was doing this, he said, `I am an orphan. Nobody looks after me. Please give me a chance.'" And saying this, R.D.Burman burst into laughter, just as one did after reading this interview (Filmfare, June 1984) because one could visualise the scene so clearly. For the man on the wall was Kishore Kumar.

Lovable prankster


And this is the persona most popularly associated with him. The lovable, endearing prankster with an incredible voice who pranced his way into our hearts with delightful songs.

It doesn't matter that many of the films that Kishore Kumar wrote, produced, directed, even edited and composed, not just the music but also some of the lyrics, have vanished into the box office incinerator. (He found the time to do this while singing around 3,000 songs and acting in 100 films). The few that have survived show that behind that adorable comic façade was a brilliant musician and poet.

FLAMBOYANT KISHORE KUMAR

Picturized over Rajesh Khanna (in the film "Kata Patang") as he plays piano at a 1970s Bollywood movie cocktail party, the voice of Kishore Kumar sings. "Pyaar diwaanaa hotaa hai, mastaanaa hotaa hain." Love is mad, it's intoxicating. The song is Jazzy sophistication, with a rumba beat and soaring strings. The lyrics, inebriated speaking of the fatal destiny of those who fall in love.

"Shamaa kahe parawaane se, pare chalaa jaa." The lamp says to the moth, move away "meree tarah jal jaayegaa, yahaa naheen aa." You'll burn up like me; don't come here. "wo naheen sunataa, us ko jal jaanaa hotaa hain." It (the moth) doesn't listen; it is compelled to burn. The melancholy fatal lyrics are sung as if laughing with tenderness to the sentiment. Kishore Kumar's vocals elevate the song to a timeless ode of the mysterious nature of life, joy, and love.

A laughing madness and joy, all in the name of the spontaneous here and now of the song. That was Kishore Kumar, that was his gift to Hindi Cinema.

C. Ramchandra was another music director who recognized Kishore Kumar's talent as a singer.[3] One of the most popular C. Ramchandra-Kishore Kumar hits is Eena Meena Deeka from Aasha (1957). Kishore Kumar also gave a few hit songs with other music directors; for example, Nakhrewaali from New Delhi (1956) by Shankar Jaikishan, and C.A.T. Cat Maane Billi and Hum To Mohabbat Karega from Dilli Ka Thug (1958) by Ravi.

Kishore Kumar produced, directed, and acted in the film Jhumroo (1961). He wrote the lyrics for the title song, Main Hoon Jhumroo, and composed music for all the songs in the film. Later, he produced and directed the serious film Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein (1964). He also wrote the script and composed music for the film. The film is based on the relationship between a father (Kishore Kumar), and his deaf and mute son (played by his real-life son, Amit Kumar). The movie achieved critical success, which perhaps motivated him to make another two films called Door Ka Rahi (1971) and Door Waadiyon Mein Kahin (1980).

Chingari koii bharke to saavan use bujhaa'e
If a spark flares up, then the rains might extinguish it
saawan jo agan lagaa'e use kaun bujhaa'e
But if the rains light a fire, who can put it out?
Patjhar jo baag ujaare voh baag bahaar khilaa'e
If the autumn waste lays to a garden, the spring will bring that garden into flower;
Jo baag bahaar mein ujare use kaun khilaa'e
But if that garden is destroyed in the springtime, who can make it bloom?

Ham se mat puuchho kaise mandir tuuta sapnon ka
Don't ask me how the temple of dreams shattered;
Logon kii baat nahiin hai yeh qissa hai apnon ka
It is not a matter for the people, this is a story for intimates.
Koii dushman thes lagaa'e to miit jiya bahalaa'e
If some enemy strikes you a blow, your friend will cheer your heart;
Man miit jo ghaav lagaa'e use kaun mitaa'e
But if a loved one inflicts the wound, who will erase it?

Na jaane kya ho jaata jaane ham kya kar jaate
Who knows what would happen, who knows what we would do.
Piite hain to zinda hain na piite no mar jaate
If we drink then we live; not drinking, we die
Duniya jo pyaasa rakhe to madiraa pyaas bujhaa'e
If the world thirsts, then wine will quench it
Madiraa jo pyaas lagaa'e use kaun bujhaa'e
But if the wine thirsts, who can satisfy its need?

Maana tuufaan ke aage nahiin chalta zor kisii ka
I understand that in the face of a storm, no one's force will work
Maujon ka dosh nahiin hai yeh dosh hai aur kisii ka
But this isn't the fault of the waves; someone else is to blame.
Manjhdhaar mein naiya Dole to maanjhii paar lagaa'e
If in midstream a boat rocks, then the sailor can cast it ashore.
Maanjhii jo naav Duboye use kaun bachaa'e
But if the sailor sinks it midstream, who can save it?

FLAMBOYANT KISHORE KUMAR

In the 1960s, as an actor, Kishore Kumar built up a notoriety for coming late for the shootings, or bunking them altogether. His films flopped frequently, and he also landed in income tax trouble. As a singer, he had some hit songs to his credit, including Zaroorat Hai Zaroorat Hai from Manmauji (1961), Gaata Rahe Mera Dil from Guide (1964), and Yeh Dil Na Hota Bechara from Jewel Thief (1967).

In the late 1960s, S. D. Burman's son, Rahul Dev Burman started patronising Kishore Kumar. Their first notable success was the soundtrack of the film Padosan (1968), in which Kishore Kumar sang the popular songs Mere Saamne Wali Khidki Mein and Kehna Hai. Padosan was a comedy film starring Kishore Kumar as a dramatist-musician, Mehmood as a Carnatic music and dance teacher, and Sunil Dutt as a simpleton named Bhola. Kishore Kumar's character in the film was inspired by the personality of Kishore's own uncle, Dhananjay Bannerjee (a classical singer). The highlight of the film was a musical, comical duel between Kishore Kumar-Sunil Dutt and Mehmood, Ek Chatur Nar Karke Singaar.

That I should make you my god too.

Mere dil mein aaj kya hai
What is in my heart today?
Tuu kahe to main bataa duun
If you ask, I will tell you.

(Koii Dhund Rahne bhii aa'e to hamein na dhund paa'e)2
If anyone comes looking, they won't be able to find us.
(Tuu mujhe kahiin chhupaa de
Hide me away somewhere;
Main tujhe kahiin chhupaa duun)2
I'll hide you away somewhere too.

Mere dil mein aaj kya hai
What is in my heart today?
Tuu kahe to main bataa duun
If you ask, I will tell you.

(mere baazuu'on mein aakar tera dard chain paa'e)2
Come into my arms and let your pain find peace
(Tere gesuu'on men chupkar
Hide me in your tresses
Main jahaan ke gam bhulaa duun)2
And make me forget all the sorrows of the world.
Terii zulf phir savaaruun
I want to adorn your hair again
Terii maang phir sajaa duun
I want to decorate the parting of your hair.

Mere dil mein aaj kya hai
What is in my heart today?
Tuu kahe to main bataa duun
If you ask, I will tell you.

(Mera jeevan kora kaagaz kora hi reh gaya)2
My life was a blank paper, it remained blank
(Jo likha tha)2 aansoon sang beh gaya
Whatever was written is washed away in tears

(Mera jeevan)2 kora kaagaz kora hi reh gaya
My life was a blank paper, it remained blank

(Ik hawa ka jhoonka aaya)2 tuuta dali se phool
A gust of wind came a flower was plucked from the branch
Na pavan ki na chaman ki (kiski hai ye bhool)2
Neither wind nor the garden is at fault here
Kho gayi kho gayi khushboo hawa mein kuch na reh gaya
Fragrance was lost in the wind, nothing remained

(Mera jeevan)2 kora kaagaz kora hi reh gaya
My life was a blank paper, it remained blank

(Udte panchi ka thikana)2 mera na koijahan
Even a flying bird has a home, I don't have any

Na dagar hai na khabar hai (jana hai mujhko kahan)2
Neither have I a path nor an idea of where I have to go
Ban ke sapna humsafar ka saath reh gaya
Dreams of my life partner, stay with me

(Mera jeevan)2 kora kaagaz kora hi reh gaya
My life was a blank paper, it remained blank

Dukh ke andar sukh ki jyoti dukh hi sukh ka gyan
Spark of happiness lies in sadness only emphasizes happiness
Dard sah ke janm leta
Bearing pain he gets born
Har koi insaan
Every human being
Vo sukhi hai
He is happy who
Jo khushi se dard sah gaya
Bore every pain unperturbed

(Mera jeevan)2 kora kaagaz kora hi reh gaya
my life was a blank paper, it remained blank

The moment to come is about to go
Ho sake to is mein zindagi bitaa do
If you can, live your life in this
Pal jo ye jaane wala hai
Moment that is about to go.

Aane wala pal jaane wala hai
The moment to come is about to go

(Ek baar yoon mili maasoom si kali)2
Once, I just met this innocent blossom
Khilte hue kaha khush paash main chalii
Blooming, she said I am leaving happy.
Dekha to yahin hain
When I look, it is right here.
Dhoondha to nahin hain
When I search, it is not here.
Pal jo ye jaane wala hain
This moment that is about to go.

Aane wala pal jaane wala hai
The moment to come is about to go
Ho sake to is mein zindagi bitaa do
If you can, live your life in this
Pal jo ye jaane wala hai
Moment that is about to go.

(Ek baar waqt se lamhaa giraa kahin)2
Once, this moment fell from time somewhere.
Wahan daastan mili
There I found this tale.
lamha kahin nahin
The moment is nowhere.
Thoda saa hansaake
By making you laugh a little.
Thoda sa rulaake
By making you cry a little.
Pal ye bhi jaane wala hain
This moment is also about to go.

Aane wala pal jaane wala hai
The moment to come is about to go

Ye shaam mastaanee, madahosh kiye jaaye
This fascinating and romantic evening intoxicates me
Mujhe dor koee khinche, teree or liye jaaye
I am pulled by an invisible string towards you

Door rahatee hain too, mere paas aatee nahee
You live far from me and never come close to me.
Hothhon pe tere, kabhee pyaas aatee nahee
Thirst never appears on your lips.
Ayesaa lage jaisai ke too, has ke jahar koee piye jaaye
As if you drink poison yet smilingly.

Ye shaam mastaanee, madahosh kiye jaaye
This fascinating and romantic evening intoxicates me
Mujhe dor koee khinche, teree or liye jaaye
I am pulled by an invisible string towards you

Baat jab main karu, mujhe rok letee hain kyon
I wonder why you stop me when I speak.
Teree mithhee najar, mujhe tok detee hain kyo
Why your lowering eyes forbid me.
Teree hayaa, teree sharam teree kasam mere hothh siye jaaye
Your modesty, I swear by you, seals my lips.

Ye shaam mastaanee, madahosh kiye jaaye
This fascinating and romantic evening intoxicates me
Mujhe dor koee khinche, teree or liye jaaye
I am pulled by an invisible string towards you

Yek ruthhee huyee, takadeer jaise koee
It seems you have resigned to your sad fate.
Khaamosh ayese hain too, tasaweer jaise koee
You are silent like a picture.
Teree najar, ban ke jubaan lekin tere paigaam diye jaaye
But your eyes serve your tongue to convey your messages.

Ye shaam mastaanee, madahosh kiye jaaye
This fascinating and romantic evening intoxicates me
Mujhe dor koee khinche, teree or liye jaaye
I am pulled by an invisible string towards you

They say that Shakti Samanta wanted to give this role to Sharmila Tagore but Asha Parekh went straight to Shakti and said that she wanted this role badly and she would do it for next to nothing. The rest as they say is history as Asha Parekh went to win Filmfare's Best Actress for this role. I am for one glad she did that . Her face is forever imprinted as the "kati Patang" This is Asha Parekh's movie a memorable performance.

Yeh jo mohabbat hai, yeh unka hai kaam
This love, it is his job
Arre mehboob ka jo bas lete hue naam
He who only keeps taking the name of his lover
Mar jaaye, mit jaaye, ho jaaye badnaam
He'll die, he'll be destroyed, he'll become ill-reputed
(Rehne do chhodo bhi jaane do yaar
Let me be, leave me alone, let me go friend
Hum na karenge pyaar)2
I will not fall in love

(Toote agar saagar naya saagar koi le le
If a wineglass breaks, someone can take a new glass
Mere khuda dil se koi kisi ke na khele)2
My god, no one should play with anyone's heart
Dil toot jaaye to kya ho anjaam
If the heart breaks then what will be the result?

Yeh jo mohabbat hai, yeh unka hai kaam
This love, it is his job
Arre mehboob ka jo bas lete hue naam
He who only keeps taking the name of his lover
Mar jaaye, mit jaaye, ho jaaye badnaam
He'll die, he'll be destroyed, he'll become ill-reputed
(Rehne do chhodo bhi jaane do yaar
Let me be, leave me alone, let me go friend
Hum na karenge pyaar)2
I will not fall in love

(Aankhen kisi se na ulajh jaaye main darrta hoon
I am scared that my eyes might get tangled with someone else's
Yaaron haseenon ki gali se main guzarta hoon)2
Friends, I am passing through a path of girls
Bas door hi se karke salaam
Just giving them a greeting from afar

Yeh jo mohabbat hai, yeh unka hai kaam
This love, it is his job
Arre mehboob ka jo bas lete hue naam
He who only keeps taking the name of his lover
Mar jaaye, mit jaaye, ho jaaye badnaam
He'll die, he'll be destroyed, he'll become ill-reputed

Let me be, leave me alone, let me go friend

FLAMBOYANT KISHORE KUMAR

Kishore Kumar‘s music (August 4, 1929 – October 13, 1987) and acting has left an indelible mark with his fans. One of them is his niece, Bharathi, Ashok Kumar‘s daughter. Here’s what she remembers of her famous uncle on the occasion of his 80th birth anniversary:

“After finishing his college, Kishore kaka came and stayed with us. He was 20 years younger to my father. So he was like an elder brother to me. My father was a great story teller. The film Mahal was written by him. He used to sit and tell us stories.

Kishore Kumar (1929-1987)

My uncle Anup and I used to sit and listen; enthralled by the way he used to tell the story. Kishore kaka used to sit at the piano. He used to play appropriate music to my father’s story. So we listened to happy music, sad music, and frightening music [as per the scene in the story]. They made us happy, moved us to tears and scared us to death. The combination of the narrative and the music is unforgettable. I don’t think I will ever experience it again.

They were a happy trio, these three brothers, so full of fun, frolic and laughter. Kishore kaka was so talented. He was a genius and my father wanted him to be an actor. Kaka [ Images ] refused and insisted that he would be a singer. So finally my father relented and gave him a song in Ziddi.

Kishore kaka was a great fan of Saigal and so he sang his first song in Saigal’s style, Jeenay ki tamanaaa… I can still remember the song. He was absolutely eccentric. Whether he was happy or sad, had work or not, had money or not, he was always full of laughter. Calling him crazy now seems an understatement.

The three brothers used to fool around a lot in the house. It was a riot when they were together. The movie Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi was a real life experience. That was the way they behaved with each other at all times.

Kishore Kumar used to be scared of his eldest brother. When he married Madhubala, it was his second marriage. My father greeted him with, ‘You have become a Muslim now. You have converted. How else can you marry a second time so soon after your first one?’

After that he used to call him Mohabbat Khan.

After the birth of his son Amit, we lost touch with him for a while. After that we met many times. But my memories of him are of those of the days when he stayed with us.

That piano he played when father told stories is now with my daughter Anuradha. Her son Siddharth plays it. He composes music on it. Kishore kaka has passed on his genes and that piano to his great grandson. The legacy will continue, I hope.”

As told to A Ganesh Nadar

Three Bollywood directors are in race to make a biopic on the life of legendary singer and actor Kishore Kumar. Shoojit Sircar who is making film on Kishore Kumar is on hold right now. However the two other filmmakers who are planning to make the biopic are Sudhir Mishra and Nagesh Kukunoor.

Mishra is excited about the film and feels like making a film on Kishore Kumar would be like dream come true. But he has not yet decided that who will play the legendary singer. However, Kukunoor has decided the lead actor. Actor Shreyas Talpade will play Kishore Kumar in Kukunoor’s film. Kukunoor is firm about Shreyas for the role because he feels that no other star with strong image will be good for the role. And interestingly Shreyas is a huge fan of Kishore Kumar.

http://www.mastimag.com/download.php?song_id=36889

(Raat kali ek khwaab mein aayi, aur gale ka haar hui)2
A jasmine bud came in a dream, and she became a garland
Subho ko jab hum neend se jaage, aankh unhi se chaar hui
In the morning when I awoke from sleep, my eyes met hers

Raat kali ek khwaab mein aayi, aur gale ka haar hui
A jasmine bud came in a dream, and she became a garland

(Chaahe kaho ise meri mohabbat, chaahe hasi mein uda do
Call this my love if you want laugh it off if you want
Yeh kya hua mujhe, mujhko khabar nahin, ho sake tum hi bata do)2
What has happened to me, I do not know, if you can, you tell me
Tumne kadam to rakha zameen par, seene mein kyoon jhankaar hui
You stepped on the earth, why was there a jingling in my heart?

Raat kali ek khwaab mein aayi, aur gale ka haar hui
A jasmine bud came in a dream, and she became a garland

(Yun to haseenon ke, maahajabinon ke hote hai roz nazaare
Actually I see beautiful and graceful ladies every day
Par unhe dekhke dekha hai jab tumhe, tum lage aur bhi pyaare)2
But after seeing them, you make them pale in beauty
Baahon mein le loon, aisi tamanna ek nahin kayi baar hui
Taking you in my arms is a wish that comes many a times

(Raat kali ek khwaab mein aayi, aur gale ka haar hui)2
A jasmine bud came in a dream, and she became a garland
Subho ko jab hum neend se jaage, aankh unhi se chaar hui
In the morning when I awoke from sleep, my eyes met hers

Raat kali ek khwaab mein aayi, aur gale ka haar hui
A jasmine bud came in a dream, and she became a garland

Kishore Kumar: Method in Madness

As in well known, Kishore Kumar was a man of many parts. He was a singer by choice, an actor by compulsion, a filmmaker by conviction... a writer, music composer, lyricist and above all, a supreme impresario - the greatest Hindi cinema has seen. There was another side to him. He was known to be a miser, a madman and a troublemaker who could never be trusted. And then, there are those who knew him well insist that he was as sober as a monk and that all the bizarre and outrageous personality traits he projected were in total opposition to his true nature.

So who was the real Kishore Kumar?

This book attempts to provide an answer to the question by dwelling into the different facets of his personality, while also probing into little known aspects of his personal life. Each of these facets is dealt with at length in separate chapters - arranged in a manner that tracks his journey through life, from a shy, little boy in Khandwa to the biggest badshah of 'boompity boom' in Bollywood. Providing a well-rounded picture of his personality, this book also has many rare and lively pictures to supplement the text.

About the Author:

Derek Bose is a senior journalist, with more than twenty years of experience with the press Trust of India and Indian Express. He has traveled extensively and is currently the South Asia correspondent of a leading British newspaper, Asian Leader.

Apart from his love for cinema, Bose is a keen Sunday painter and has directed several short films, including the award winning documentary, Dance of the Gods.

Whenever I turned, the path bent with me
Havaa ke paron pe, meraa aashiyaanaa
My home is on the wings of the wind

Musaafir huun main yaaroon
I'm a traveler my friends

Din ne haath thaam ke, idhar bithaa liyaa
The day held my hand and called me here
Raat ne ishaare se, udhar bulaa liyaa
The night beckoned and called me there
Subah se shaam se meraa, dostaanaa
Night and day are my friends

Musaafir huun main yaaroon

http://www.mastimag.com/download.php?song_id=13552

Koi Humdum Na Raha Koi Sahara Na Raha
There Is No One On Whom I Can Depend Or Love
Ham Kisi Ke Na Rahe Koi Hamara Na Raha
Now I Belong To No One, And No One Belongs To Me

Koi Humdum Na Raha Koi Sahara Na Raha
There Is No One On Whom I Can Depend Or Love

(Shaam Tanhaayi Ki Hai Aayegi Manzil Kaise)2
This Evening Of Lonliness, Will I Find My Destination?
Jo Mujeh Raah Deekhaye Woh Taara Na Raha
The Star That Lit The Way Is No Longer Available

Koi Humdum Na Raha Koi Sahara Na Raha
There Is No One On Whom I Can Depend Or Love

(Aye Nazaaron Na Hasso Mil Na Sakunga Tumse)2
O World Don't Laugh At Me, I Have Turned Away From You
Woh Mere Ho Na Sake Main Bhi Tumhara Na Raha
My Beloved Could Not Be Mine, So I Have Turned Away From The World

Koi Humdum Na Raha Koi Sahara Na Raha
There Is No One On Whom I Can Depend Or Love

(Kya Bataaon Main Kahan Yunhi Chala Jaata Hoon)2
I Don't Know My Self, Where I Am Going
Jo Mujeh Phir Se Bulah Le Woh Ishaara Na Raha
The Person Who Would Call Me Back, Is Not Here Any More

Koi Humdum Na Raha Koi Sahara Na Raha
There Is No One On Whom I Can Depend Or Love
Ham Kisi Ke Na Rahe Koi Hamara Na Raha
Now I Belong To No One, And No One Belongs To Me

16) WOH SHAAM KUCH AJEEB THI

http://www.mastimag.com/download.php?song_id=29634

(Woh shaam kuchh ajeeb thi, yeh shaam bhi ajeeb hai
That evening was strange, this evening is strange also,
Woh kal bhi paas paas thi woh aaj bhi kareeb hai)2
She was nearby then, she is closer even now,

Woh shaam kuchh ajeeb thi
That evening was strange,

Jhuki hui nigaahon mein, kahin mera khayaal tha
In those lowered glances,some thoughts were of me,
Dabi dabi hansi mein ik, haseen saa gulaal tha
In the suppressed smiles,were beautiful peach blushes
Main sochta tha, mera naam gunguna rahi hai woh -2
I always thought, she was humming my name,
Na jaane kyon laga mujhe, ke muskura rahi hai woh
Don't know why I always felt that she was smiling,

Woh shaam kuchh ajeeb thi
That evening was strange,

Mera khayaal hai abhi jhuki hui nigaah mein
Thoughts about me are still there in the lowered glances,
Khuli hui hansi bhi hai, dabi hui si chaah mein
Lovely smiles are there too, in the suppressed desires,
Main janta hoon, mera naam gunguna rahi hai woh
I feel sure that, she is humming my name
Yahi khayaal hai mujhe, ke saath aa rahi hai woh
I also get the feeling that she is walking with me

(Woh shaam kuchh ajeeb thi, yeh shaam bhi ajeeb hai
That evening was strange, this evening is strange also,
Woh kal bhi paas paas thi woh aaj bhi kareeb hai)2
She was nearby then, she is closer even now,

Woh shaam kuchh ajeeb thi
That evening was strange,

http://www.mastimag.com/download.php?song_id=32632

(Dil Aisa Kisi Ne Mera Toda Barbaadi Ki Taraf Aisa Moda
My heart is broken and it is driving towards destruction
Ek Bhale Manus Ko Amanush Bana Ke Chorra)2
A kind gentleman before, has now has become inhuman

Saagar Kitna Mere Paas Hai
The sea is so close to me
Mere Jeevan Mein Phir Bhi Pyaas Hai
Even then my life is thirsty
Hai Pyaas Badi Jeevan Chota Amanush Bane Ke Chorra
With that huge thirst, and short life, I am inhuman

Dil Aisa Kisi Ne Mera Toda Barbaadi Ki Taraf Aisa Moda
My heart is broken and it is driving towards destruction

Kehete Hai Duniya Ke Raaste Koi Manzil Nahi Tere Vaaste
The paths of the world there is no destination towards you
Nakaamiyon Se Naata Mera Joda Amanush Bana Ke Chorra
My relationship with disappointments has made me inhuman  

Dil Aisa Kisi Ne Mera Toda Barbaadi Ki Taraf Aisa Moda
My heart is broken and it is driving me towards destruction

Dhooba Suraj Phir Se Nikle Raheta Nahi Hai Andera
If the setting sun rises again, the darkness will leave
Mera Suraj Aisa Roota Dekha Na Maine Savera
My sun is upset and angry with me, I can't see the morn
Ujaalon Ne Saath Mera Chorra Amanush Bana Ke Chorra
Daylight has left me alone, turning me into a non-human

(Dil Aisa Kisi Ne Mera Toda Barbaadi Ki Taraf Aisa Moda
My heart is broken and it is driving me towards destruction
Ek Bhale Manus Ko Amanush Bana Ke Chorra)2
A kind gentleman before, has now has become inhuman

(Dil Aisa Kisi Ne Mera Toda Barbaadi Ki Taraf Aisa Moda
My heart is broken and it is driving me towards destruction

18) PAL PAL DILKE PAAS
http://www.mastimag.com/download.php?song_id=31226

(Pal pal dilke pass tum rehtee ho,)2
Every second you are close to my heart,
Jeevan meethee pyaas yeh kehtee ho,
Life is a sweet thirst, you always say,

Pal pal dilke pass tum rehtee ho,
Every second you are close to my heart,

Har shaam ankhon par,tera aanchal lehraye,
Every evening your dress flutters over my eyes,
Har raat yaadon kee barat ley aye,
Every night brings your memories in a musical parade,
Main saans leta hoon,
Every time I breathe,
Teri khushboo aatee hai,
Your fragrance comes to me,
Ek mehka mehkkasa paigam latee hai,
Brings scented gifts for me,
Mere dil kee dhadkan bhi tere geet gatee hai,
Even the beats of my heart, sing your songs,

(Pal pal dilke pass tum rehtee ho,)2
Every second you are close to my heart,
Jeevan meethee pyaas yeh kehtee ho,
Life is a sweet thirst, you always say,

Kal tujhko dekha tha maine apney aangan mein,
Saw you yesterday,in my garden,
Jaise keh rahee thee tum,
As if you were saying,
Mujhe baandhlo bandhan mein,
Please bind me in a relationship,
Yeh kaisa rishta hai, yeh kaise sapne hai?
What kind of relation is this, what kind of dreams are these?
Begane hokar bhi,kyun lagte apne hai?
Despite being strangers,why do I feel you are mine?
Mai sochte rehta hoon, dar darke kehta hoon,
I keep wondering, and say this with trepidation,

(Pal pal dilke pass tum rehtee ho,)2
Every second you are close to my heart,
Jeevan meethee pyaas yeh kehtee ho,
Life is a sweet thirst, you always say,


Tum sochogee kyun itna mai tumse pyaar karoon?
You will wonder, why I love you so much?
Tum samjhogee deewana, main bhee ikraar karoon,
You may feel I am crazy, so you too will join my madness,
Deewanonkee yeh batein, deewane jaante hain,
Crazy lovers’ such feelings, only other crazies can understand,
Jalney mein kya maja hai, parwane jaante hai,
The fun of getting burnt, only the *parwana knows,
Tum yoonhi jalaatey rehna,aa aakar khwabon mein,
Please keep burning me, just like this by coming in my dreams,

(Pal pal dilke pass tum rehtee ho,)2
Every second you are close to my heart,
Jeevan meethee pyaas yeh kehtee ho,
Life is a sweet thirst, you always say,

*Note : In Indian poetry Parwana and the flame of a lamp are considered as inseparable lovers. Parwana is the fly that suddenly appears after the rains at night..the type that comes in hordes and dies in the night near the light, loses it wings . These flies are so attracted by the flame they actually fly into it and die.
They say the flame burns for her lover, and he willingly gets into it even though he ends up dying. Flame is female, the fly male.

(Tum Bin Jaaoon Kahan)2
Without You, Where Would I Go
Ke Duniya Mein Aake
For, Coming In This World
Kuch Na Phir Chaaha Kabhi Tumko Chaahke
I Have Never Wanted Anything Else, Dear, After Loving You

Tum Bin, Ay, Jaaoon Kahan
Without You, Where Would I Go

Reh bhi sakogay tum kaise, hoke mujhse juda
How will you stay separate from me
Phat jaaye gi deewarein sun ke meri sada
The walls will break hearing my call
Aana hoga tumhe mere liye saathi meri, suni raha ke
You will have to come for me, my companion of the lonely roads

Tum Bin Jaaoon Kahan
Without You, Where Would I Go
Ke Duniya Mein Aake
For, Coming In This World
Kuch Na Phir Chaaha Kabhi Tumko Chaahke
I Have Never Wanted Anything Else, Dear, After Loving You

Kitni akeli si pehle thi yahi duniya
How lonely was this world before
Tumne nazar jo milayi bas gayi duniya
When I met your glance, the world became my abode
Dil ko mili jo tumhari lagan
When the heart obtained your affection
Diye jal gaye meri aah se
Lamps burned from my sigh

(Tum Bin Jaaoon Kahan)2
Without You, Where Would I Go
Ke Duniya Mein Aake
For, Coming In This World
Kuch Na Phir Chaaha Kabhi Tumko Chaahke
I Have Never Wanted Anything Else, Dear, After Loving You

Incidentally Tum Bin Jaaon Kaha was also sung by Mohd Rafi.

Both were used in the film 'Pyar Ka Mousam'

And whenever Rafi vs Kishore discussions come up this song is always taken into considerations,

Some says Rafi version was better and then others say Kishore was better.

Personally I think both renditions were superb.

Chaye Rahe Too Chayo Rahe Paaa suno log mere from a Dharmendra Movie is a classic Kishore. Asj, Dont laugh at my Hindi. yippie yippie

http://www.mastimag.com/download.php?song_id=24547


KHIZA KE PHOOL SE AATI  KABHI BAHAAR NAHI
Spring has no effect on this withered  flower
MERE NASIB ME AE DOST TERA PYAR  NAHI
I am not destined for your love, my beloved

NA JAANE PYAR ME KAB MAIN ZUBAAN SE FIR JAOON
I  can't say when lovelorn me might go back on my words.
MAIN  BANKE AANSU KHUD APNI NAZAR SE GIR JAOON
I might become a drop of tear that roll down my own eyes
TERI KASAM HAI MERA  KOI AETBAAR NAHI
I swear upon you that even I don't trust  myself.
MERE NASIB ME AE DOST TERA PYAR  NAHI
I am not destined for your love, my beloved

MAIN ROZ LAB PE NAYE EK AH TAKTA HOON

MAIN ROZ EK NAYE GAM KI RAAH TAKTA HOON
I  anticipate a new grief daily.
KISI  KHUSHI KA MERE DIL KO INTEZAAR NAHI
My heart has stopped expecting for  any kind of happiness.
MERE NASIB ME AE DOST TERA  PYAR NAHI
I am not destined for your love, my beloved

GAREEB KAISE MOHABBAT KARE AMIRON SE
How can a poor  person fall in love with a rich one?
BICHAD  GAYE KAYI 'RAANJHE' APNI 'HEERO' SE
So many lovelorns have got separated  from their lovers
KISI KO APNE MUQADDAR PAR  IKHTIYAAR NAHI
No one (ikhtiyaar=?) trusts his own  destiny

MERE NASIB ME AE DOST TERA PYAR  NAHI.
I am not destined for your love, my beloved

KHIZA KE PHOOL SE AATI  KABHI BAHAAR NAHI
Spring has no effect on this withered  flower
MERE NASIB ME AE DOST TERA PYAR  NAHI
I am not destined for your love, my beloved

You are angry at me, my heart is broken
(Mere yaar ko mana de vo pyaar phir jaga de)2
Make my friend see reason, make the love resurface

Bhole o bhole
Oh Lord Shiva

Wo bichada to kasam se phir main na ji sakuunga
If she leaves, I swear that I would not be able to live
Mere bhole tere jaise main zahar na pi sakuunga
My Lord, like you I would not be able to drink poison
(Jism huun main wo jaan hai meri
In the body she is my soul, she doesn't realise but I do
Usako nahi pahachaan hai meri)2 pyaar mera tu jaane
You know my love, make my loves' anger go away

Mere yaar ko mana de vo pyaar phir jaga de
Make my friend see reason, make the love resurface

Bhole o bhole
Oh Lord Shiva

Kya hoga phir tera Gauri jo ruutha jaaye
What will happen to you if Gauri Mata doesn't talk to you
Shankar tere maathe ka chanda jo tuuta jaaye
Lord Shankar what if the moon on your forehead breaks
(Dam dam dam damaru na baaje Bam bam bam phir tu na naache)2
The drum would not beat and you would not dance away then
yaar agar na maane
If love doesn't agree

(Mere yaar ko mana de vo pyaar phir jaga de)2
Make my friend see reason, make the love resurface

Bhole o bhole
Oh Lord Shiva

26) DUKHI MAN MERE: FUNTOSH 1956
http://www.mastimag.com/download.php?song_id=12703

Dukhi man mere sun mera kahnaa
My sad heart, listen to me
Jahaan nahin chainaa vahaan nahin rahna
I dont want to stay where I feel restless
Dukhi man mere
My sad heart

Dard hamaaraa koi na jaane
No one understands my pain
Apni garaj ke sab hain deevaane
Everyone is obsessed with self interest
Kiske aage ronaa royen
There is no point sharing my grief with someone else
Des paraayaa log begaane
It is an unknown place full of strangers

Dukhi man mere sun mera kahnaa
My sad heart, listen to me
Jahaan nahin chainaa vahaan nahin rahna
I dont want to stay where I feel restless
Dukhi man mere
My sad heart

Laakh yahaan jholi phailaa le
You may try your utmost
Kuchh nahin denge is jag vaale
but you will get nothing out of these people
Patthar ke dil mom na honge
Their stone hearts will not turn soft
Chaahe jitnaa neer bahaale
Despite how much you may cry before them

Dukhi man mere sun mera kahnaa
My sad heart, listen to me
Jahaan nahin chainaa vahaan nahin rahna
I dont want to stay where I feel restless
Dukhi man mere
My sad heart

Apne liye kab hain ye mele
All this fanfare is not for me
Ham hain har ek mele mein akele
I am all alone in this festivity
Kyaa paayegaa us mein rahkar
where people treat lives as toys
Jo duniyaa jeevan se khele
I will get nothing staying in this world
Kyaa paayegaa usmein rahkar
where people treat lives as toys
Jo duniyaa jeevan se khele
I will get nothing staying in this world

Dukhi man mere sun mera kahnaa
My sad heart, listen to me
Jahaan nahin chainaa vahaan nahin rahna
I dont want to stay where I feel restless
Dukhi man mere
My sad heart

This one goes way back, very emotional song, but a gem from KK: Jagjit Singh also did this one in his album a favourite of mine 'Close to my Heart'

27) HUMEIN AUR JEENE KE: AGAR TUM NA HOTE 1983

http://www.mastimag.com/download.php?song_id=26633

Humein aur jeene ki chaahat na hoti
I would not have the desire to live any more
Agar tum na hote agar tum na hote
If you were not here, if you were not here.

(Tumhein dekhke to lagta hai aise
When I saw you, it felt like
Bahaaron ka mausam aaya ho jaise)2
The season of flowers has come.
Dikhayi na deti andheron mein jyoti
In the darkness, the light would not be seen

Agar tum na hote agar tum na hote
If you were not here, if you were not here.

(Humein jo tumhaara sahara na milta
If I never got your support
Bhanvar mein hi rehte kinaara na milta)2
I would have stayed in a whirlpool, with no shore in sight
Kinaare pe bhi to lehar aa duboti
Even on the shore, the waves would have sunk me

Agar tum na hote agar tum na hote
If you were not here, if you were not here.

Tumhein kyaa bataauun ke tum mere kyaa ho
How should I tell what you are to me?
Merii zindagii kaa tum hii aasaraa ho
You are the solace/shelter of my life.
Main aashaa ki la Diyaan, na rah rah pirotii
I would not have filed the loads of hope on every path

Agar tum na hote, agar tum na hote
If you were not here, if you were not here.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Har ik Gam tumhaaraa sahenge khushii se
I will bear every sorrow of yours with happiness.
Karenge na shikavaa kabhii bhii kisii se
I will not complain to anyone anywhere.
Jahaan mujh pe hansataa, khushii mujhape rotii
The world would laugh at me and happiness would cry at me

Agar tum na hote, agar tum na hote
If you were not here, if you were not here.

Na jaane jo dil se ye aavaaz aai
I don’t know this sound that has come from the heart.
Milan se hai badhake tumhaarii judaaii
Your separation is obstructed by our meeting.
Ye aankhon ke aansuu, na kahalaate motii
These tears from the eyes would not be called pearls

Agar tum na hote, agar tum na hote
If you were not here, if you were not here.
