KUCHH DIL NE KAHA KUCHH DIL NE SUNA KUCHH BHI NAHI..



One of Lata's classics with beautiful composition from Hemant Kumar and great lyrics from Kaifi Azmi

Song: Kuchh Dil Ne Kaha
Movie/Album: Anupama
Year: 1966
Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
Music: Hemant Kumar
Lyrics: Kaifi Azmi

kuch dil ne kaha, kuchh bhi nahin
aisi bhi baatein hoti hain
kuch dil ne suna, kuchh bhi nahin
aisi bhi baatein hoti hain

leta hai dil angadaeeyaan, is dil ko samjhaaye koi
armaan na aankhe khol de, ruswaa na ho jaye koi
palkon ki thandi sej par, sapnon ki pariyaan soti hain
aisi bhi baatein hoti hain

dil ki tasalli ke liye, jhoothi chamak jhootha nikhaar
jeewan to soona hi raha, sab samajhe aayi bahaar
kaliyon se koi poochta , hasti hain ya roti hain
aisi bhi baatein hoti hain

Hemant Kumar & Lata - Jaag Dard-e-Ishq Jaag - Anarkali [1953]



Anarkali" (Hindi:, Urdu: ) is a 1953 film based on the historical legend of the Mughal emperor Jehangir. Starring Pradeep Kuma and Bina Rai. As per the legend Jehangir revolted against his father Akbar over his love for a common girl called Anarkali. It was the top grossing Hindi film in the year of its release, and one of the biggest Hindi film hits in its decade [1]. Another film on the same theme was Mughal-E-Azam, made in 1960, which was again a major commercial and critical hit.

The movie today is mainly remembered for its outstanding musical score. C.Ramachandra came up with what was perhaps the best musical score of his career. The movie has many famous songs, songs that became part of the collective psyche of Indian music lovers. Lata Mangeshkar, the queen of Indian melody, who was already a phenomenon, reached even greater heights with her songs for this movie which can only be described angelic. Most memorable among the movie's songs are "Yeh Zindagi usiki hai(Lata),Mohabbt aise dhadkan hai(Lata),Mujhse mat pooch meri ishq main(Lata),Jaag dard-e-ishq jaag(Lata-Hemant),O aasmanwale(Lata) etc..

Hemanta Kumar Mukhopadhyay (Bangla:Hemonto Kumar Mukhopaddhae) also known as Hemanta Mukherjee (June 16, 1920 - September 26, 1989) was an Indian singer, composer and producer. He sang in Hindi films under the name Hemant Kumar.
......
....In September 1989, Hemanta travelled to Dhaka, Bangladesh to receive the Michael Madhusudan Award. He performed a concert in Dhaka as well. Immediately after returning from this trip, Hemanta suffered a major cardiac arrest on September 26th and breathed his last at 11:15 pm in a nursing home in South Calcutta. Interestingly, even 15 years after Hemanta's death, Gramophone Company of India releases at least one album by Hemanta every year, repackaging his older songs, because of the commercial viability of his songs. Hemanta's legacy still lives on through the numerous songs he has recorded, music he has composed and through many male singers in Bengal and the rest of India who continue to imitate his singing style...

Lata Mangeshkar ( born September 28, 1929) is a highly known playback singer in the Indian Hindi movie industry. Mangeshkar's career started in 1942 and has spanned over six decades. She has done playback singing for over 980 Bollywood movies, and has sung songs in over twenty Indian languages. She is the elder sister of the equally accomplished singer, Asha Bhosle....
Awards and recognitions;
Lata Mangeshkar has won several awards and honors, including Padma Bhushan (1969), Padma Vibhushan (1999), Dada Saheb Phalke Award (1989), Bharat Ratna (2001), three National Film Awards, and 12 Bengal Film Journalists' Association Awards. She has also won four Filmfare Best Female Playback Awards. In 1969, she made the unusual gesture of giving up Filmfare Best Female Playback Award, in order to promote fresh talent. She was later awarded Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award in 1993.
In 1984, the State Government of Madhya Pradesh instituted the Lata Mangeshkar Award in honor of Lata Mangeshkar. The State Government of Maharashtra also instituted a Lata Mangeshkar Award in 1992.
In 1974, The Guinness Book of Records listed Lata Mangeshkar as the most recorded artist in the history, stating that she had reportedly recorded "not less than 25,000 solo, duet and chorus backed songs in 20 Indian languages" between 1948 and 1974.
Although the entry has not been printed in Guinness editions since 1991, reputable sources claim that she has recorded thousands of songs, with estimates ranging up to figures as large as 50,000.
Lata is the second vocalist to receive "Bharat Ratna", India's highest civilian honour......

Hemant Kumar songs from movie Siddhartha

Monday, September 1, 2008


"Amar gaaner swaralipi lekha rabeyPantha pakhir kujano kakoli ghirey "
("The chords of my songs will be preserved In the tunes of the flying birds")
' Yeh raat yeh chaaNdni phir kahan- Sun jaa dil ki daastan' - the romantic Dev Anand singing his heart out to heroine Geeta Bali saw the emergence of a young singer with a rich mellifluous voice on the firmament of the Indian Music industry- Hemant Kumar - whose deep voice and lilting melodies enthralled numerous music lovers for more than half a century.
Hemanta Mukherjee was born on the 16th of June 1920 in Varanasi. From an early age he had developed an everlasting bond with music. In his autobiography "Ananda-dhara" he mentions " I would always be on the lookout for a chance to sing . Be it a religious festival or just a family gathering I would enjoy singing any new song that I had picked up".
His talent was soon recognized and Hemanta Mukherjee sang his first song on the AIR in 1933 at the age of 13. Six years later he cut his first gramophone disc for HMV. Recognition soon followed in the elite music circle of India. In 1940 he sang his first Hindi geet 'Kitna dukh bhulaya tumne'. But commercial success was yet to come. In his own words "I would wait at soirees for organizers to call on me, but singers of the stature of Pankaj Mullick and K.L. Saigal would arrive and I would have to remain content listening to them."
But a true genius never goes unrecognized. In 1948, a firebrand lyricist and music composer - Salil Chowdhury teamed up with him and gave birth to a completely new form of music - Kavya-geeti (ballad but not necessarily romantic) . It was immediately a smash hit. To this day the song - 'Ga.Nyer Bodhu'remains the symbol of the once properous rural Bengal. Soon Hemanta received offers from the Bombay film Industry. And after that there was no looking back.
Jaal, Nagin, Anarkali, Solva Saal, Baat Ek Raat Ki, Bees Saal Baad, Khamoshi, Anupama all are bedecked by jewels carved by this master craftsman. Hemant's jovial number from Solva Saal 'Hai Apnaa Dil to Aawara' finished as the chartbuster in the 1958 Binaca Geetmala. Every Dev Anand number to which Hemant lent a voice became an instant super-hit.
Hemant Kumar was also a music director of no less a calibre than he was a singer. In 1955, Hemant Kumar received the prestigious Filmfare Award for the Best Music Director for the film 'Nagin'. Interestingly, the famous been music of this film is used by snake charmers to this date and has been used innumerable times in films.
Back in Bengal, the Hemanta-Salil duo were churning out all time hits. At the same time as Nagin, Hemant Kumar received an offer to compose music for the Bengali movie Shapmochan starring the rising star Uttam Kumar . This again proved to be a runaway hit and the Uttam-Hemanta combination became part of a legend which continued for the next 20 years.
Hemanta also left an indelible impression as one of the foremost exponents of Rabindrasangeet. His rendering of the male characters in Tagore's dance dramas made these characters come to life just through their voice.
For more than fifty years Hemant Kumar gave to music listeners innumerble hits - jewels by thier own virtue. His recorded songs total about 2000. He scored the music of about 150 Bengali and 50 Hindi films. He also had a brief stint with film direction under his home banner "Geetanjali productions". Although not blockbusters, the films were modest runners.
Though Hemant Kumar has left the mortal world yet he remains alive to all his admirers through his countless songs - immortal melodies in the history of Indian music.
"Agami prithibi kaan petey tumi shunoAmi jodi aar nai ashi hetha phireyTobu... Amar gaaner swaralipi lekha raabey"
"The future world may listen to the tune of my melodies.Even if I do not return here...The chords of my songs will be scored"

Hemanta Kumar Mukhopadhyay (Bangla: হেমন্ত কুমার মুখোপাধ্যায় Hemonto Kumar Mukhopaddhae) also known as Hemanta Mukherjee (June 16, 1920 - September 26, 1989) was an Indian singer, composer and producer. He sang in Hindi films under the name Hemant Kumar.





Early life


Hemanta was born in the city of Varanasi, India. His family hailed from a village named Baharu in West Bengal. They migrated to Calcutta in the early 20th century. Hemanta grew up there and attended Mitra Institution school of Bhawanipore area. There he met his longtime friend, Subhas Mukhopadhyay who later became a Bengali poet. After passing the intermediate examinations (12th grade), Hemanta was admitted to Jadavpur University to study Engineering. However, he quit academics to pursue a career in music, despite parental objection. He briefly tried his hand at literature and also published a short story in a prestigious Bengali magazine called Desh, but by the late-1930s he was committed entirely to music.
