Tweeps remember Kishore Kumar

If Rafi’s birthday caused the tags to explode, Kishore caused three of them to explode. Absolutely impossible to compile on my own. Tweets coming in faster than I can refresh. Let alone compile. I simply call this strange difficulty of love our collective tribute to him.

: Long Live Kishore Kumar (4th August 1929 13th October 1987).. http://twitpic.com/60gzwq
Photo by arinpaul on twitter

This post will focus on the tweets of those who knew him personally, songs/footage we don’t get to see in films, and other less easily found information about him.

With over 2,500 songs to his name, it is a sheer impossibility to include his songs here without totally overloading my blog out. So, unless the tweet is particularly touching or memorable, no songs on their own. Apologies.
Also, there are many tweets with birthday wishes and glorious words of love and praise, which have been left out. The day is only half done, and the browser hanged twice in the process of compiling. πŸ˜€
Read to the very end, or miss out on treasures. You have been warned. πŸ˜‰

Tonight Kishore Kumar will play #onloop.

The mood began hours before midnight… Tweeps were ready and in wait for the 4th of August. Naturally, the agenda was ambitious – to be able to say all they wanted to about one of the greatest legends of Indian films. Be prepared, begin on the mark seemed to be the goal.

A few went ahead with a head start πŸ˜€

Early years of kishores singing had a touch of legendary K L Saigal and later he developed his own style and was great in all types of songs

His voice had great resonance though not a trained singer but used to come for recordings only after proper rehearsal or he used to postpone

Though I like all his songs but DUKHI MAN MERE , PHOLO KE RANG SE are close to my heart , before recording he used to ask me if I want any..

If I want him to sing in any particular way to match my mannerisms, so I used to tell him to keep me in mind while singing and I used to …

Someone dug up an old interview @PritishNandy had done with Kishore Kumar for the Illustrated Weekly of India in 1985.

What a marvellous insight into the quirky, down-to-earth genius with absolutely no qualms about indulging in his exact whims. Never had I read a more delightful interview, and my love for this man was now added with the love for the genius. I love his mind.

Why am I rambling? Because you ABSOLUTELY MUST read this interview if you care even a little about this awesome man. Folow link below, read.

Warning: Don’t eat, drink or stand while reading. Splatters and rolling on floor imminent.

And then, a legend interviewing another. LATA MANGESHKAR interviewing Kishor Kumar. None of our plastic presentations of todays times. Casual, down to earth talk between two people passionate about music, who know each other. No airs, easy camaraderie, mutual respect. Wow!!! Forgotten that mega stars could be so …. real.
Remember here, that Lata was already an established singer when Kishore Kumar entered the industry and yet, she is interviewing him – possibly the only interview she ever did. I doubt that she ever needed supplementary work. Enshrines what I find the most interesting about the art of interviewing – it isn’t about greater or lesser, or jobs or even “professionally done”. It takes a genuine respect and interest to know. AND it has two of the most phenomenal people ever in the Indian film music scene….
Toward the end, where KK speaks of his achievements, wish to retire, move on, he is emotional, and damn it, my eyes were wet too, knowing that he died soon after… MUST WATCH.
Did you see the Kishore’s interview with Lata? Two legends. His last interview. emotional, phenomenal http://t.co/jHgBHhc @vvsn #Kishore

Kishore Kumar woulda been 82 today. I’d have given my left arm to have him sing any of my songs. There will never be another like him.

And the rest of us…. an unending flood of people. I identified and searched through at least six hashtags all of them buzzing heavy with tweets. Some of them – #kishore #kishoreda #kishorekumar #kk #kishorerocks #happybirthdaykishore …. and more. Was quite a task, and then being able to look beyond the songs was a huge challenge in itself.

I confess I was picking up songs to play as I worked πŸ˜€

As we in India step onto 4th of August – there can be only one name on our mind #Kishore Kumar -you start hearing music just thinking of him

Whoa!!!! What an inning! 

And there were others. @kweezzz spontaneously took on a series of quiz questions to enthrall the most hardcore fan and trivia enthusiast at the same time.

@kweezzz went ahead to take on the fans with a super tough quiz that was as entertaining as it was head scratching where only two people could answer correctly two questions out of ten. Read on!

Hi All, This is quiz master @p1j.. Are there enough people to play an impromptu quiz on Kishore Kumar? #kishorekumar #BDay
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Oj this will be an impromptu quiz.. with more focus on Fun element.. Give me 10 mins to prepare a few questions to start with…
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
In the meantime listen to this brilliant song http://goo.gl/odwlA of Kishoreda and guess what is so specific about this song!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Speaking of Prize Possession to winner, atleast one song of Kishore da that you might not have heard.. @malayD
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
speaking of the warmup question “Man Kare Yaad Wo Din” .. it poses a very interesting real life triangle.. Kishore-Yogita-Mithun
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
When Yogita got separated with Kishore to Marry Mithun, Kishore da stopped singing for Mithun Chakraworthy for many many years
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Only in the last time of hius life Kishore da resumed singing for Mithun.. This one is interesting as Kishore sang for Mithun (wth Yogita.).
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Interestingly the film was titled “Akhiri Badla”… πŸ™‚
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Let me start with a tough one.. and easier would follow suite… Identify the film http://ow.ly/i/fimw
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
First two correct answers will get 10 & 5 respectively..
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Clue : The film was announced but never made (that makes it tough for sure)
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Ok Giving the answer.. Its Dinu ka Dinanath.. Kishore launched this film to launch Amit Kumar in lead but this got shelved!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
The only one to guess this right is @singh_dr 10 marks to him!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Q2. should be easy for Kishore fanatics.. Hear this audio http://goo.gl/z4v2G .. Indentify which kishore song follows this part..
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
The humming is not on records but predates a lovely song of Kishoreda.. Think gulzar?
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Think Mathematics? and the film has specific significance in Kishore’s profile..
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Giveaway clue….. Think Angoor?
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
This is humming prelude to Hawaaon pe likh do hawaaoin ke naam… from Do Dooni Chaar.. Kishore played a double role in the film!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Q3. Ok! What links Hriskesh Mukherjee, Gulzar, Kaifi Azmi & Amitabh Bachchan to Kishore Kumar!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Amitabh’s narration in Bawarchi had nothing to do with Kishore singing so no direct connect… Bawarchi overruled!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Let me add another name to the list Naseeruddin Shah. with Hriskesh Mukherjee, Gulzar, Kaifi Azmi & Amitabh Bachchan.. Find common connect
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Think beyond a film or a song!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
So someone gets it.. @paidlukkha gets it correct
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
A. All of these names are recipient of Kishore Kumar award constituted by MP Government..
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
The interesting aspect of the award is its structure.. As Kishore da was a multi dimensional personality.. the award is structured as….
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
To be given to a director, an actor, a screen play writer and a lyricist in rotation every year and the order every year is fixed..
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
First 4 recipients were Hrishida (director) -98, Naseer (actor) – 99, Gulzar (screenplay) – 2000 & Kaifi (Lyricist) – 2001
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
10 points to @paidlukkha for getting Q3 right!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Q4. Can you guess this mad mad mad song.. http://goo.gl/XmgLN
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
It is a fun number where Kishore da endorsed many many brands.. Ad guys are you hearing?
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
The song endorsed products like Cherry Blossom, Dabur Amla Tel, Modern Bread and even Nirodh πŸ™‚ The answer is more funny than question πŸ™‚
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
You need easy questions?
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
No correct answers… The hero of the film is one of the Khan’s
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
After going thru my timeline of d day I thought there r enough hardcore Kishore fanatics,so posted some tough ones. can shift gears if reqd.
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
The song in question for “Elpaar Saariyaan” from the film Dhadkan starring Sanjay Khan .d film which had “Main to chala jidhar chale rasta”
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
no one got that correct..
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Q5. Ok. normally lyricists are not well paid, but one kishore song is penned by one of the richest Indians in the world.. Can you guess it
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
when I say one of the richest Indians.. that must have been featured in some list of Richest Indians…
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
When I say richest.. the worth accounts more than billion dollars.. listed in Forbes..
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
While the movie Kishore sang for was a very low budget film…. but a favorites of many of us!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
The lovely film was made in 80s
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Ok here is the answer http://goo.gl/dygj
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
A. The song is “Maine tumse kuchh nahin maanga” from the film Katha directed by Sai Paranjape.. Kishore for Naseer http://goo.gl/dygj
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
The lyricist of the song was Indu Jain, chairperson of India’s largest media group, Bennett-Coleman Listed in Forbes list of richest Indians
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Q6. Identify composer of this song.. http://goo.gl/UEBNP should be easy for many of you..
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
3 more questions after this…. all relatively easier!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
the answer is not bengali πŸ™‚ @paidlukkha
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Time to give answer πŸ™‚
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
The composer is none other than Lata Mangeshkar, who composed two songs for Kishoreda in Bengali πŸ™‚
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Q8. A question I have asked earlier.. For which family of actors Kishore sang for Three Generations in the family!.. (not remixed)
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
When you name the family can you name the actors too?
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Ranbir not included as Kishore did not sing for him in reality and it was mixed! There is a definite answer!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Ok here is the answer.. One and only Mehmood….
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Kishore Sang for Mehmood on many occasions. Sang for Son Lucky Ali in Yehi hai zindagi and for mehmood’s father Mumtaz Ali in Rangeeli(52)
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Here is kishore singing for Lucky Ali http://goo.gl/0hpJP πŸ™‚
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
The song Kishore sang for Mehmood’s father Mumtaz Ali is very interesting one..first song where Kishore sang in both male & female voice
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Ok last question. Name a Kishore song, sang by him, but not featured on him(lipsynced), though he is present in the song onscreen!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Padosan song was surely lip synced by Kishore even on screen
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
The film was Made by Kishore Kumar himself!
kweezzz
August 4, 2011
Ok here is the answer.. Beqarar dil tu gaaye ja http://goo.gl/c3lBH from Door Ka Rahi picturised on Ashok Kumar with Kishore sitting silent!
